Trump-loving ex-cop recruits ‘lone wolf patriots’ to open fire on black protesters at GOP convention

Published

on

A disgraced police officer called on militia members and “lone wolf patriots” to bring their guns to Cleveland to do battle with black protesters at the Republican National Convention.

“I am encouraging patriots and Trump supporters and those that support liberty and freedom to come lawfully armed with lethal and non-lethal weaponry,” said Jim Stachowiak, a right-wing activist and former police officer, in a video posted on his YouTube channel.

Stachowiak, who has been banned from Facebook and charged with criminal defamation for falsely identifying a LinkedIn user as a terrorist, said Black Lives Matter activists — a group he calls “Black Lies Matter” — had threatened to kill Donald Trump.

“They have threatened to cause riots in Cleveland and nationwide,” said Stachowiak, who lost his police certification following a misconduct investigation after just three years as a public safety officer. “It is our sworn duty and obligation for all those like me and many of you who have taken the oath to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic.”

He called out to military veterans and right-wing groups such as the “III Percent” militia to intimidate anti-Trump protesters in case law enforcement or the National Guard are unable — or unwilling — to take violent action.

“We should answer the call with our Second Amendment,” Stachowiak said, hoisting a military-style rifle and aiming at the camera. “Yes, I’m encouraging patriots to come prepared to defend this nation against a domestic terrorist organization supported by the terrorist in the White House, Obama.”

Stachowiak, who made news last year for standing guard with a rifle outside military recruiting stations, claimed Black Lives matter had called for genocide against non-blacks and a bombing campaign against nurseries.

“This is going to be called racist, what I’m about to say, such as the rapper Ted Poe,” Stachowiak warned. “I’m going to call them what they have called themselves. Ted Poe said, quote, and I quote, We n***as are prepared to start riots should Donald Trump be nominated as the Republican candidate. Well, patriots, if the people Ted Poe refers to himself as n***as — and again, this is the label they have called themselves — decide to get violent and the police stand down and the police cannot guarantee the safety of American citizens, it is our constitutional and lawful duty to protect those in fear or danger or the imminent threat of serious loss of life and bodily harm.”

Stachowiak misstated the dates of the Republican National Convention, which will be held July 18-21, as being scheduled for April — which is when an anti-Muslim rally he organized outside the Georgia Capitol managed to draw one single attendee.

“Come prepared, because this may spark another revolution,” Stachowiak promised. “It won’t be decided if that spark turns into a bonfire by we who love liberty, for we will defend, not attack. We won’t act, but we will react.”

He then flipped off the camera in case President Barack Obama or U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch happened to see his online video and object to his message.

Stachowiak inaccurately claimed a Black Lives Matter activist had been arrested for child pornography, and he cited a hoax news report about a black activist accused of murdering white women and stuffing their bodies in a freezer.

“The Black Lives Matter want to attack those of us for merely supporting a candidate,” he said, pointing at Trump’s name on a banner behind him. “Let’s answer the call, people.”

He dared black protesters to burn an American flag outside a military base, as he fidgeted with his rifle.

“What you don’t stand against, you’re standing for,” Stachowiak said. “Trump: Let’s make America great again, people.”

Both conservatives and liberals change their beliefs and positions after hearing where Trump stands: new research

Published

on

During America’s health care debate in 2013, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel got some laughs when he asked people whether they supported Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. Both names refer to the exact same legislation.

Now, a new poll demonstrates that voters are more than willing to change their previously stated positions after learning where President Donald Trump stands on the issue.

After a U.S. drone strike killed Qasem Solemani and Iran retaliated against a U.S. base in Iraq, a Yahoo News/YouGov poll surveyed 1,500 people about their views on U.S. policy toward Iran.

Catholic leaders promised transparency about child abuse — but they haven’t delivered

Published

on

It took 40 years and three bouts of cancer for Larry Giacalone to report his claim of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a Boston priest named Richard Donahue.

Giacalone sued Donahue in 2017, alleging the priest molested him in 1976, when Giacalone was 12 and Donahue was serving at Sacred Heart Parish. The lawsuit never went to trial, but a compensation program set up by the archdiocese concluded that Giacalone “suffered physical injuries and emotional injuries as a result of physical abuse” and directed the archdiocese to pay him $73,000.

Even after the claim was settled and the compensation paid in February 2019, however, the archdiocese didn’t publish Donahue’s name on its list of accused priests. Nor did it three months later when Giacalone’s lawyer, Mitchell Garabedian, criticized the church publicly for not adding Donahue’s name to the list.

Mike Pompeo’s behavior is straight out of Nixon VP’s playbook: historians

Published

on

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s expletive-laden dust-up with NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly is on message for the Trump-led Republican Party. Complaining that Kelly’s question about Ukraine was “another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration,” Pompeo has rallied the Republican base by slamming a journalist doing her job.

Whether he knows it or not, Pompeo is drawing from a playbook written a half century ago and perfected by a politician once voted the worst vice president in American history. Secretary Mike Pompeo, meet Vice President Spiro Agnew.
