Oregon militant Ryan Bundy placed under higher security after ‘threatening’ cops

Published

on

Ryan Bundy, one of the leaders of the militant group that seized a federal facility in Oregon, was placed under higher security after an altercation with guards at the Multnomah County Detention Center, the Oregonian reported.

A spokesperson for the jail said Bundy refused to let local sheriff’s deputies handcuff him in preparation for a transfer from the jail. Bundy was slated to be taken to an undisclosed location by federal marshals at the time of the incident.

According to Capt. Steve Alexander, Bundy argued with a sergeant trying to handcuff him, then “spun around,” prompting the deputy to take him to the ground. Oregon Public Broadcasting reported that Bundy was evaluated by medical staffers and found to be uninjured before being delivered to marshals.

Bundy was then taken out of general housing at the jail for “threatening” or “assaultive” behavior and placed in disciplinary housing, which will allow him to spend less time out of his cell. He could lose further privileges depending on the outcome of an administrative hearing in three days.

Bundy and his brother Ammon, who spearheaded the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, are slated to go to trial on Sept. 7.

Given the racist history of Redskins owner Dan Snyder and the protests over the team's name, some are calling it another example of failed PR stunts.

Published

On Tuesday, former Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich urged the House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings into Attorney General William Barr, accusing him of an "egregious violation of his oath."

Bromwich's remark came in response to reports that Barr personally ordered authorities to forcibly clear peaceful protesters out of the area around the White House, using gas and rubber bullets, before President Donald Trump walked to the nearby church.

The House should immediately initiate proceedings in re The Impeachment of Attorney General William Barr. This is simply the most recent egregious violation of his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. https://t.co/cwsgoupSLp

‘The worst is yet to come’: Leading conservative issues blistering argument for defeating Trump and his GOP enablers

Published

on

George F. Will, who turned 79 on May 4, is among the most prominent conservative journalists in the United States — although he has been a vehement critic of Donald Trump’s presidency and even left the Republican Party because of it. And Will’s most recent Washington Post column is especially scathing: the Never Trumper stresses that voting the “crybaby in chief” out of office in November is crucial in order to reverse the country’s “downward spiral.”
