A 54-year-old Massachusetts woman allegedly vandalized a church with “the mark of the beast” and then attacked police officers with a large crucifix on Tuesday.

Amarellis Cermeno was arrested by Haverhill police after someone called to report that a woman wheeling a suitcase with an American flag had written “666” in black marker on the La Iglesia Biblica Bautista church, according to local news outlet WCVB5.

Officers discovered the “666” vandalism in 15 places on the church’s exterior, and found Cermeno in the area.

She allegedly tried to strike Detective Sgt. Dana Burrill multiple times with a large metal crucifix. But police said they were able arrest Cermeno without incident.

The crucifix was taken from a nativity scene at the Sacred Hearts Church. The cross was donated to the church after vandals stole the baby Jesus from the nativity scene on Christmas day and left a severed pig’s head in its place.

“The investigation of the baby Jesus theft at Sacred Hearts Church remains open at this time,” police said.

Cermeno was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, malicious destruction of property over $250, disorderly conduct, destruction of a place of worship and resisting arrest.

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
