This is a scenario you had better get used to. Conservative Republicans will be urged to run against weak-kneed Republicans who refused to support Trump and in many cases actually opposed him. How much of your hard-earned money would you be willing to risk betting that Georgia’s Brian Kemp or Brad Raffensperger get reelected to any office?
In Missouri, the former extremely popular Eric Greitens is being pushed to run against Roy Blunt for the Senate in 2022. This could also affect Mitch McConnell because these conservatives would be much less likely to vote for him in the new Congress starting in January of 2023. That would be great news for conservatives. We need a hardcore leader like the Democrats do.
This week Blunt said that the election was not rigged and there was no effective voter fraud. Trump supporters are extremely loyal and have very long memories, so it is not a good idea to anger them. In Blunt’s case, it could be fatal. He is not that well-liked and Greitens was extremely popular.
He was forced out as governor by Soros backed prosecutor Kim Gardner. he has now been cleared of all charges against him, while Gardner is being investigated for her actions in the case.
Eleven US Senators are going to object to certifying the votes for the electoral college. They are current Senators:
- Ted Cruz (R-Texas),
- Ron Johnson (R-Wis.),
- James Lankford (R-Okla.),
- Steve Daines (R-Mont.),
- John Kennedy (R-La.),
- Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.),
- Mike Braun (R-Ind.)
- And four Senators Elect (newly sworn in):
- Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.)
- Roger Marshall (R-Kan.)
- Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.)
- Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.)
Trump supporters have started a website calling for the recall of Blunt. But members of the US Congress are not subject to recall. But it does give them a head start in voting him out of office next year.
From The Gateway Pundit
The GOP base will no longer support the big government, pro-China, weakling senators who have refused to stand up and protect their constituents!
Additionally, several tweets have named the former Missouri Governor as an alternative to Blunt, who has held public office for over 30 years.
Eric Greitens was fully exonerated in February 2020 following an 18-month investigation that found “no evidence of any wrongdoing on the part of Eric Greitens.”
Upon winning his election to be the prosecutor in LA, George Gascon, a George Soros puppet, announced a long list of crimes that he would no longer enforce. Other Soro’s stooges such as LA Mayor Eric Garcetti endorsed Gascon over the incumbent DA, a Black female. Sounds pretty racist and mysongonistic to me.
Much of Gascon’s support came from George Soros, who has backed many of the worst DAs in the country such as Kim Gardner and Kim Foxx. It’s just his way of helping rid the country of law abiding innocent victims by recycling the criminals back on the street. Taking acrap in the middle of the street is now legal in many jurisdictions thanks to Soros and his DAs.
Now, Gascon is working on helping out cop killer. He is dropping all of the ancillary charges against double murderer, Rhett Nelson, who killed a policeman execution style as he waited in line at Jack in the Box. Just the day before Nelson had murdered a skateboarder in cold blood.
Nelson was not eligible for the death penalty and Gascons actions take life without parole off the table. That gives Nelson hope that he will one day be free and able to kill again. Isn’t liberalism great? The only way Gascon will leave anyone in prison is if they commit a truly heinous crime, like voting for a Republican.
From Breitbart News
In June 2019, police say Rhett Nelson shot LASD deputy Joseph Gilbert Solanoin the back of the head while he was waiting in line at an Alhambra Jack in the Box while off-duty.
Police say just one hour before that, Nelson shot and killed 31-year-old Russian skateboarder Dmitry Koltsov. Deputy Solano died in the hospital.
FOX 11 has now confirmed that Gascon’s office is seeking to dismiss all gun enhancements and special circumstances of multiple murders against Nelson. If a judge signs off on the dismissals, life without parole would be off the table for Nelson if he were to be convicted, and he could potentially be released from prison at some point in the future.
Gascón’s office confirmed to Melugin that it is seeking to remove the sentencing enhancements, and justified it by arguing that it was not in the public interest to keep an inmate in prison for life at high cost if he had been rehabilitated.
The man who had charges brought against him by an out of control and activist local law enforcement was vindicated Thursday when a higher judge smacked them all down.
One court watcher reacted to the news and wrote, “#StLouis ethically challenged Circuit Attorney #KimGardner dismissed from McCloskey case by a judge after she used the case for fundraising. Gardner was first elected because of massive financial support from George Soros.”
McCloskey posted on his Twitter timeline, “The Circuit Court has disqualified Kim Gardner and the entire St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office from the case against me. We will ask the Judge in Patty’s case to do the same!”
“St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner has been dismissed as the prosecutor in the case against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, according to court records.
The McCloskeys had previously filed a motion to remove Gardner and her office from the case, citing fundraising emails Gardner sent during her re-election campaign that mentioned the McCloskeys.
In those emails, Gardner mentioned the criticisms of her office made by President Donald Trump and Governor Mike Parson, saying they were “fighting for the two who pointed guns at citizens during the Black Lives Matter protests.”
The McCloskeys were indicted on one count each of unlawful use of a weapon for pointing guns at protestors June 28 when a crowd marched down Portland Place, a private street in the Central West End, on their way to demonstrate against St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson.”
Gardner is a radical far left activist.
Fox News reported on the case and wrote:
“The content of some campaign fundraising emails by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner infringed on the McCloskeys’ right to receive a fair trial, Circuit Judge Thomas Clark II ruled Thursday, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Gardner’s emails suggested that by charging the McCloskeys in July, she appeared to have “initiated a criminal prosecution for political purposes,” the judge wrote, according to the newspaper.
“Like a needle pulling thread, she links the defendant and his conduct to her critics,” Clark wrote. “These emails are tailored to use the June 28 incident to solicit money by positioning her against defendant and her more vocal critics.”
St. Louis Judge Removes Soros-Funded Prosecutor Kim Gardner From Political Hack Job Against McCloskeys Mike Parson has pledged to pardon the couple in the event that partisan prosecutors secure a bogus conviction on the bunk charges.
Another court watcher reacted online to the story and mentioned George Soros, who is a well connected Democrat and RINO Party activist funding massive movements with successful tactics of community organizing to go around governments and assert his will.
“We saw it first hand here in St. Louis. Kim Gardner, another Soros DA has been a catastrophe for St. Louis. Murders are at an all-time high, and so are many other crimes….. It’s incomprehensible how this can happen, but it does,” the poster wrote.
Many Americans would like lawmakers, who are associated with Soros to be disbarred and removed from office. There was some discussion of that recently on Fox News.
Where to begin, oh, where to begin? You’re just not going to believe this story, but it has to be told anyway.
First and foremost, this story is so crazy, and with a Philly media blackout, I want to mention that everything I write about here is to be prefaced with the word “allegedly.”
Philadelphia is in the news so much this week, because of Black Lives Matter (BLM) kicking Donald Trump’s reelection campaign into high gear. This story also ties directly into one of Joe Biden’s signature campaign issues; The “skyrocketing” murders of black transgender “women,” or, black men who feel the need to wear ugly prom dresses and their resume. It’s what creepy, sleep Joe cares about.
If that isn’t strange enough, the media doesn’t wish to touch this story with a ten-foot pole.
FAIR WARNING: This isn’t a warm and fuzzy family story you’re about to read.
The latest brouhaha in Philadelphia began after police failed to follow Joe Biden’s police reform recommendation. When a dangerous, psychotic criminal with a mile-long rap sheet attacked police with a knife, they didn’t shoot the man in the leg as Joe Biden will unconstitutionally order cops across the nation to do if he wins the election next week. No, they shot and killed him before he stabbed on of them.
The newest BLM martyr pled guilty to a home invasion robbery back in 2017 during which he kicked down a woman’s door and held a gun to her head. A real Biden voter. By 2020 he was already back in polite society. In fact, he was awaiting for another trial for threatening to shoot a woman when he had his fatal encounter with Philly police.
Why wasn’t this man in prison? Well, that’s because of Larry Krasner, the Philadelphia District Attorney, another George Soros-funded progressive DA where the billionaire radical leftist dumped buckets of money into his campaign to help him get elected. And like many Soros-backed DAs like Kim Foxx in Chicago who dropped over 25,000 cases in the first three years of her getting elected, and suddenly, out of nowhere, dropped all charges against hate-crime-hoaxer Jussie Smollett. Or Kim Gardner, the Circuit Attorney in St. Louis, Missouri who charged the McCloskeys for defending their home against a mob of rioters who broke through a locked gate and entered their property with the intent to do harm. In Philly’s Larry Krasner’s case, he lets criminals out of jail as often as he can, and only fights for minimal sentences for serious violent crimes committed against the very people he was elected to defend.
Thanks to the BLM summer lovefest that Joe Biden’s voters have put the country through, Philadelphia just had its 400th black-on-black homicide for the year with homicides spiking up 42 percent in Philadelphia this year under DA Larry Krasner’s catch-and-release policies. They even beat New York City out that has a whopping 30 percent homicide increase rate. I hope the voters in Philly are paying attention that a billionaire Nazi collaborator is running an experiment to the American justice system at their expense.
You might assume that while Philadelphia is in a state of war after BLM rioters injured over 30 police officers and rioters taking advantage of the “Walter Wallace Jr 100 Percent Discount” by looting stores that the DA’s office is working overtime in conjunction with the police department to help get control of the situation, but you couldn’t be more wrong.
One of Krasner’s staff is a man by the name of Devonte’ Douglass. Douglass just happens to be Philadelphia’s Gun Violence Counselor. Yes, things are so bad in thee City of Brotherly Love that they had to hire a gun violence counselor. He’s an anti gun guy who works for the DA’s office. He offers counseling services to family members who lose their loved ones resulting from DA Larry Krasner’s catch-and-release policies. 2020, the armpit of calendar years, has made Douglass a very busy man.
Nevertheless, Douglass wasn’t in the office on Tuesday at 10 am, even though he was being paid to be there by the Philadelphia taxpayers. Instead, Douglass picked up a black tranny (yeah, I said it) prostitute, drove him/her/ze/zer/it to a local cemetery (because that’s where we all go when we want to have sex with black transvestite Philadelphia hookers) and paid the man, the woman, the ze, the zer, it $500 for a bizarre sex act in the back of a Dodge Durango with the windows rolled down, doing things that did not involve social distancing or the wearing of masks.
After they concluded the fiduciary aspect of their transaction, the black trans “person” pulled out a .357 and demanded more cash from the city’s Gun Violence Counselor. The male prostitute then put the gun away and started to walk around to the front of the vehicle. That’s when the city’s very liberal, very anti-Second Amendment Gun Violence Counselor allegedly pulled out his Glock and plugged his weird “date” twice in the trans chest.
Despite the fact that he allegedly killed his date while the black trans “woman” was not pointing a gun at him, Douglass has not been charged with a crime. Philadelphia police revealed that this isn’t the first time that Douglass picked up a trans prostitute for bizarre sex acts in the back of a Dodge Durango in a neighborhood cemetery while he’s on the taxpayers’ dime. Here’s the kicker. Philadelphia local media has imposed a complete blackout on this story. You will neither read nor hear about it from a Philly news source. Not even the tabloids are covering. Not even the leftist Philadelphia City Paper or Philadelphia Magazine or even Metro Chinese Weekly!
A short digression: I remember a story when Fast Eddie Rendell was elected Mayor of Philly, Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc. which owned the two top Philly newspapers the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News, both left-wing outlets (so much for competition) owed a serious sum of money in back taxes to the city. Rumor had it that Rendell made them an offer they couldn’t refuse and allegedly told the news firm that if they never wrote a single negative story about him or his administration he would accept the puny amount of $15,000 and call the tax liability settled. Of course, they jumped on the offer and held up their end of the bargain by never writing a single, solitary negative story about the crooked Democrat mayor. Do you think maybe Mayor Jim Kenney has a similar deal? Why else would the Philadelphia news industry not want to jump on this juicy story that would make you want to throw up in your own mouth when you read it? Sorry for that. Or, could it be because liberal news outlets feel it would be too politically incorrect to report on a black man of power killing his transgender prostitute who tried to shake him down for more money in the middle of performing in the cemetery sex Olympics?
One Philadelphia reporter explained that the media isn’t covering the story as a result of it could be cruel to “out” Devonte’ Douglass as a gay man, especially because the nature of his relationship with the black trans hooker is “unclear.” Wait, what? How about cruelty toward the human being who is dead because of the Gun Violence Counselor’s alleged use of his own firearm to kill him/her/ze/zer/it?
Good, God, the logic of liberals is exhausting on the human brain. I mean, I thought black lives were supposed to matter to leftist journos? I realize this is another black on black crime that leftist reporters don’t care about, but still. The hypocrisy of an anti-gun, Gun Violence Counselor shooting and killing someone who happens to be a transvestite prostitute he just did really strange things with in the back of a Dodge Durango in the middle of a cemetery should be enough to get even a last page mention? Instead, it get “meh.”
Things like this are in the top 100 reasons 26 years ago I ran screaming from Philadelphia, a city I was born, educated and raised in, and have never looked back.
The mother of Breonna Taylor mother, who was shot and killed by police during a drug raid, is accusing the Kentucky attorney general of abusing the grand jury system and she wants a new prosecutor who is “committed to properly investigating the case.”
“Grand jurors did not believe officers were justified in killing my daughter, yet A.G. Cameron denied them of their right to render a decision reflecting the same,” Tamika Palmer said in a letter written to the Kentucky Prosecutors Advisory Council on Wednesday.
Mind you, a grand jury is secret, and they have the power to decide whatever they want. There aren’t even lawyers in the room outside of the prosecutor. That means there are no defense attorneys allowed in a grand jury hearing, which pretty much renders Mr.s Palmer’s statement moot.
Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was killed in March when three police officers attempted to serve a narcotics warrant at her home.
The officers had what is referred to as a no knock warrant, a warrant which says that the police have it upon good faith information that the suspect will be armed and dangerous and therefore they should not give away the element of surprise. But, the police entering the apartment that day did not use the no knock warrant, rather, they knocked on the door and identified themselves as police. Witnesses attest to that.
After knocking and identifying themselves, police then forcibly entered the dwelling, which was 100 percent legal.
After the officers knocked down her door, Breonna’s boyfriend started shooting at them, claiming fear of an intruder. Police returned fire to protect themselves hitting Taylor five times. She died. It was reported that the boyfriend used Breonna as a human shield in the hallway where the shooting occurred. No drugs were found.
A lot of speculation, some say lies, went around after the incident, some that Breonna and boyfriend were in bed when she was shot, and that was false. It was also said that the police didn’t knock and identify themselves, and that was false. In fact, if you want someone to blame for Breonna’s death take a look at the boyfriend, and Breonna herself. I know that sounds harsh, but she was with a known drug dealer who claims he thought the person coming through the door was Breonna’s ex-boyfriend who was also a drug dealer. It was known that Breonna would hold money, and/or drugs at her place for the boyfriend’s, because nobody was going to suspect the young woman would ever do such a thing.
Last month, Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that the grand jury indicted one officer, Brett Hankison, on three counts of wanton endangerment because he fired negligently into a neighboring home. Cameron said that the “grand jury agreed” that the police officers were justified in firing the shots that killed Taylor because her boyfriend shot at them first.
Two of the grand jurors publicly denied Cameron’s appraisal this week. The anonymous jurors told CBS that they thought the officers’ actions were “negligent” and “criminal,” but Cameron never allowed them to consider manslaughter or murder charges.
“They never gave us the opportunity to deliberate on anything but the charges for Hankison. That was it,” one of them told Gayle King. “As a matter of fact, when they announced that those were the only charges, there was an uproar in that room. There were several more charges that could have gone forward on all of those officers.”
That’s called prosecutor discretion, and it works both ways. You know how the Soros-funded progressive prosecutors who do things bass ackwards, like Kim Gardner, the Circuit Attorney who charged the McCloskeys in Missouri for defending their home by brandishing weapons after a mob of rioters broke through a locked gate in their community and were threatening the couple. Or how about Kim Foxx in Chicago who suddenly dropped all charges against actor/singer Jussie Smollett, who also dropped over 25,000 cases at the beginning of her term? Well, Cameron decided that after witnesses said the police knocked and identified themselves, and after the boyfriend shot at police, they had the right to defend themselves, and if anyone should be charged with Ms. Taylor’s death it should be the boyfriend.
Palmer said that Cameron’s characterization of the decision made by the grand jury “flat out lies” in her letter. Of course she did, because she’s a grieving mother. No one expects a grieving mother to see things clearly.
“At a minimum, my daughter deserves, as do all aggrieved victims, a competent and capable prosecution team which is committed to properly investigating the case, evaluating the law from an unbiased lens, presenting the evidence and allowing the grand jurors to perform the functions guaranteed to them under the law,” she wrote.
In other words, a prosecutor is only competent if they go after the police for doing their job.
Cameron defended himself against the growing criticism, stating that he stands by the findings. Once again, the facts make it difficult for a normal thinking person to believe the police murdered a young woman for no reason or that Breonna’s death occurred due to police negligence. The facts of the case are the police knocked on the door and identified themselves. Breonna’s boyfriend shot at police as they were entering the home, and police returned fire to protect themselves. These are the facts.
“The tragedy, and I’ve said this from the beginning, was that Breonna Taylor was in that hallway next to Kenneth Walker when they returned fire and they hit her,” he told Fox News earlier this month. “No one disputes that this is a tragedy, but sometimes our criminal law is inadequate to respond to a tragedy.”
Taylor’s death became a movement and started a wave of national protests against police brutality, even though there was no police brutality according to the findings. This is the topsy-turvy world we live in now where up is down, wrong is right, and right now wrong.
May Breonna rest in peace, but may her death be a lesson to all that being associated with drug dealers could end up getting you killed.
Soros backed prosecutor in St Louis, Kim Gardner is under a criminal investigation into her illicit prosecution of former Missouri governor Eric Greitens and she lost a major court case on Monday that could expose her to criminal charges.
The state of Missouri has a sunshine law, similar to the Federal FOIA.
That law forces all state employees to turn over information that has been requested by private citizens.
Investigative reporter John Solomon sued Gardner’s office for all the relevant information on the Greitens prosecution, including any communications she had with George Soros or his underlings.
Garner claimed the information was all privileged but Judge Christopher McGraugh warned Gardner’s office is “reckless” and “dilatory” for failing to respond to a lawsuit alleging violation of Missouri’s open records law. Gardner could end up having to pay Solomon’s legal fees for the past 2 1/2 years of litigation.
The George Soros protege is currently under criminal investigation for her part in framing the former governor.
Gardner accused Greitens of taking a nude picture of his lover to use for blackmail purposes. Greitens denied the charge. Gardner was unable to provide even a scintilla of evidence that he had even from his cell phone.
Instead of using the investigators Missouri and St Louis was already paying, Gardner hired an out of state investigator, William Tisaby. Tisaby is now facing charges for seven felonies for perjury and evidence tampering in the former Republican governor’s case.
The ex-mistress has yet to be charged with perjury and Gardner is also being investigated for alleged abuse and politicization of the justice system. The documents that must now be released could very well sew up the case against her and would be why she refused to give it up even though the law was against her.
From The Gateway Pundit
Following the meeting, in February 2018 Gardner charged Greitens with invasion of privacy, a felony that carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison in Missouri. Gardner alleged the governor had taken nude a photograph of Sneed without her consent and threatened to use the photo for blackmail.
When questioned under oath to corroborate the charges, Sneed admitted she might have been remembering her accusations, the heart of the criminal case, “through a dream.” In subsequent testimony, she claimed she had never seen the photograph Greitens allegedly had taken of her and that she saw him with no phone or camera to take the photograph.
Kim Gardner, Circuit Attorney for St. Louis, pressed charges against a local couple last month who were filmed on video brandishing weapons on the porch of their home. Now the Missouri Attorney General is dropping the charges.
The McCloskeys, Mark and Patricia, were captured on video when they responded to a mob ripping down the locked gate that led to a private driveway and trespassed through their yard. That video went viral. That’s breaking and entering and trespassing, and the George Soros-funded Kim Gardner charged the victims instead of the people who broke the law. What the McCloskeys did was exactly why we have a Second Amendment.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey’s response to a mob of protesters tearing down the gate to a private driveway and trespassing through their yard went viral.
Leftists in the Fake News media and the Democratic Party have said they were peaceful protesters. When you break through a locked gate and go onto someone’s private property you are no longer a peaceful protester. I don’t know why that’s so difficult to comprehend for the leftist mind, but here we are.
The McCloskey’s who’re both attorneys, were eating their dinner on the patio of their home when several hundred Black Lives Matter protesters, tore down a gate to gain entry to a private community that was plainly marked as private with “No Trespassing” signs.
Mark McCloskey said that the intruders started threatening the couple. He then went into the house and grabbed a pistol and what appeared to be an AR-15.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt, and the weapons that the McCloskey’s legally owned worked by keeping the mob at bay and stopping them from harming them. Their crime? They lived in a gated community.
From The Lion Times:
“Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt is intervening in state Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s legal action against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, for brandishing a rifle.
The McCloskeys took up arms when extreme ‘anarchist’ demonstrators broke in through a locked gate and gathered outside their house on June 28. The weapon was confiscated after the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department searched the property.“
The AG released a video on Twitter, where he stated:
“As Missouri’s chief law enforcement officer, I simply will not stand by while Missouri laws are being ignored.
That is why I am entering the case in terms of seeking the dismissal of the case to protect the rights of Missourians to defend themselves in their property under Missouri’s castle doctrine.”
“The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in the Missouri Constitution and their laws, which I am charged for protecting,”
“This includes the Missouri castle doctrine, which provides broad rights for Missourians to protect and defend their personal safety, and property against those who wish to do them harm.”
The legal professional common mentioned that the costs issued by Gardner was nothing greater than politics.
“The shameless circuit attorney filed suit against a St. Louis couple who, according to published reports, say they were doing just that–defending the safety of their property,”
He went on to say:
“A political prosecution, such as this one, would have a chilling effect on Missourians exercising their right to self-defense. The law of Missouri is clear and must be protected … enough is enough.”
This whole incident with the circuit attorney and the McCloskeys was a test to render Second Amendment rights worthless. Had the AG not intervened this way, more progressive prosecutors, financed by George Soros, would step all over Second Amendment rights, and it would have spread throughout the country.
What elected official in their right mind would charge a couple who was defending themselves from rioters who broke into their community and started threatening them? A radical progressive leftist Democrat, that who.
We have a big decision to make in November. If you want radical leftist prosecutors and politicians completely ignoring laws and subverting justice for ideology then vote for Joe Biden. If you want the rule of law to apply to everyone, vote straight Republican. Seriously, because Trump, who is a law and order president, needs control of the House and Senate to get things done.
As expected, Soros backed crooked prosecutor Kim Gardner ignored Missouri state law in order to charge the McCloskeys for protecting their property against the violent BLM crowd in St Louis.
It’s not only not a crime but Missouri state law specifically says you have the undeniable right to protect your life, your home, and your property.
Missouri’s governor said that he would likely pardon the couple but they would still have the stigma of appearing guilty.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a brief that asks the court to toss the case out on the basis that no crime was committed.
“The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in our constitution and our laws, including the Castle Doctrine, which provides broad rights to Missourians who are protecting their property and lives from those who wish to do them harm. Despite this, Circuit Attorney Gardner filed suit against the McCloskeys, who, according to published reports, were defending their property and safety. As Missouri’s Chief law enforcement officer, I won’t stand by while Missouri law is being ignored.”
Gardner, who was bought and paid for by George Soros claimed that it is illegal for the couple to “wave their guns menacingly” at the BLM thugs who broke into the private community.
She left out the fact that Missouri has the castle doctrine that gives citizens of Missouri that very same right.
Mark McCloskey, an attorney, recalled last month:
“One person pulled out [some] loaded pistol magazines and he clicked them together and he said, ‘You’re next.’ We were threatened with our lives, threatened with the house being burned down, my office building being burned down, even our dog’s life being threatened. It was about as bad as it can get. You know, I really thought it was the storming of Bastille, that we would be dead and the house would be burned and there was nothing we could do about it. It was a huge and frightening crowd and they broke in the gate and they were coming at us.”
When you vote in November think about what it would be like to live in a country run by Marxists who actually support the thugs who burn, loot and attack at will. Vote for President Trump and any other Republican on the ballot.
A married couple, homeowners and both lawyers in Missouri were caught in a firestorm of protestors late in June when a group of BLM members entered an upscale neighborhood marauding through the residential area after very public violent protests in the area, and seeking revenge from the Mayor of the town, who also lived in the area.
Before the mob could reach their intended destination they encountered Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who said they felt threatened and had been given death threats by the mob at the time, so they got their weapons and stood outside their home ready to defend their lives and their property.
Live footage of the event went viral on social media, the TV and print media picked the story up and debated over the couple’s right to defend themselves and their property, versus the freedom of speech and freedom to protest of the mob.
The McCloskeys went on Hannity and Patricia McCloskey said,”the mob said they were going to kill us. They were going to come in there. They were going to burn down the house.”
They went on Tucker and Mark McCloskey said, “the media is right behind the mob. We had a loud crowd of angry people and they are supporting these entities which are, from my understanding, they are Marxist and oppose everything that I stand for and I hold dear and near.”
The DA of St. Louis, Kim Gardner, who reportedly previously released rioters and looters, investigated the couple and had their weapons removed, saying that the McCloskeys, in standing their ground infringed upon the rights of the mob.
Breitbart reported about Gardner saying, “Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (R) reacted to reports that a search warrant was served by St. Louis police on the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey by stating that Missouri law gives individuals “really expansive authority” to protect themselves and their property and said that St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner (D) “has a record of making politically-motivated decisions not based on the law.”
Schmitt said that under the state’s Castle Doctrine law, “an individual has really expansive authority to protect their own lives, their home, and their property. And I think the story here to watch here is the local prosecutor, Kim Gardner.”
Bookmark that-Gardner is a Democrat.
The Republican Senator Senator Josh Hawley called for federal authorities to investigate a Civil Rights investigation against Gardner.
According to the Hill, “Republican Gov. Mike Parson suggested on Friday that he was prepared to pardon a St. Louis couple if charges were filed against them for brandishing firearms at a group of protesters outside their home.”
During an interview on “The Marc Cox Morning Show” on 97.1 FM in St. Louis, Parson was asked about giving a pardon to the McCloskeys.
But Gardner said that she would look into the events, noting at the outset of her probe that “we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights.”
Parson strongly pushed back against the impetus for the investigation, saying that the McCloskeys “did what they legally should do.”
And there is what could be a landmark of case in the making, and something every suburban dweller should be paying close attention to.
