‘Crying Nazi’ threatens more violence after conviction of Heather Heyer’s killer: An ‘army of fanatics willing to die’

Published

The notorious white supremacist nicknamed the “Crying Nazi” defended James Fields as an “innocent man” after he was convicted of murdering Heather Heyer at the deadly “Unite the Right” rally.

Christopher Cantwell, who was also charged for his role in the Charlottesville alt-right gathering, lashed out at the “left” following the conviction.

“Charlottesville and the broader Left celebrate prematurely tonight,” Cantwell wrote on the alt-Right social media platform Gab. “The show trial and CONviction (sic) of James Fields is merely a symbolic victory for you, which you’ll forget in short order. He was not an intellectual leader or military necessity.”

“It is likewise symbolic for us. We lost nothing, but we will never forget. Knowing that any of us could be next, it will drive us toward your complete and total destruction, as a matter of necessity for our very survival,” he threatened.

“The next Dylann Roof, the next Robert Bowers, he’s not going to go out blasting and be out of the fight. You are creating an army of fanatics who are ready to die, but the ones who are listening to me, are going to put in the massive amounts of unpleasant work, that will be required to make sure history treats you worse than it did Hitler,” he continued.

“If he was found not guilty, he could have been a sign of hope for our justice system, and peaceful solutions to our problems, and lacking those signs is a pain I would rather not suffer,” he added.

Here are 3 moves a desperate Trump will likely attempt in order to cling to power

Published

on

In a column for the Daily Beast, political observer Micheal Tomasky speculated -- and not without good reason -- that a frantic Donald Trump will do anything to remain in office and thereby avoid being slammed with criminal indictments once he departs the Oval Office for good..

As the columnist explained, impeachment seems inevitable and the president will likely take desperate measures and that he has already given hints about three paths he may take -- if not all of them.

Tomasky wrote, "It’s foolish to say that Trump thinks ahead about anything. The late journalist Wayne Barrett said many true things about Trump, but the truest ever was when he observed that Trump says whatever will get him through the next 10 minutes," before adding, "People around him of course are more strategic and are thinking ahead. And they’re all saying and doing and writing things right now that will, if the opportunity presents itself, pave the way for Trump to burn the Constitution."

Pentagon says up to 1,000 US troops to withdraw from northern Syria

Published

The Pentagon said Sunday President Donald Trump had ordered the withdrawal of up to 1,000 troops from northern Syria -- almost the entire ground force in war-torn country -- amid an intensifying Turkish assault on Kurdish forces.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the move came after the US learned that Turkey was pressing further into Syria than had been expected.

And the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are seeking a deal with the Syrian regime and Russia to counter-attack against the Turks in the north, Esper added.

"We find ourselves as we have American forces likely caught between two opposing advancing armies and it's a very untenable situation," Esper told CBS's Face the Nation.

Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump

Nothing is clear in this moment of grave peril for America, democracy and the world, not even the things that appear obvious. We stumble around in darkness, our vision obscured, awaiting a more perfect understanding, as in the famously evocative phrase of 1 Corinthians 13:12: “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
