Dane Powell, Trump Inauguration “Protester” Sentenced To 4 Months in Prison

Dan Powell plead guilty to “charges of felony rioting and felony assault on a police officer.

The first of more than 200 protesters criminally charged with rioting during President Trump’s inauguration was sentenced to four months behind bars Friday after pleading guilty to a pair of felonies.

Dane Powell, 31, was arrested along with 233 others on January 20 and initially faced a total of 14 charges before pleading guilty in April to rioting and assaulting a police officer.

Powell had traveled from Florida to peacefully protest Mr. Trump’s swearing-in but “got carried away,” his attorney, Ashley Jones, said during Friday’s sentencing hearing in Washington, D.C., The Tampa Bay Times reported.

Indeed, investigators showed video evidence during Friday’s hearing of Powell breaking windows and throwing rocks at police officers during a destructive Inauguration Day melee on the streets of D.C.

Powell conceded in court filings to participating in a “black bloc” protest in which over 200 people wore “black or dark colored clothing, gloves, scarves, sunglasses, ski masks, gas masks, goggles, helmets, hoodies and other face-concealing and face-protecting items to conceal their identities.”

Powell “admitted being part of a group of rioters who moved approximately 16 blocks over a period of more than 30 minutes,” the Justice Department said in press release Friday. “He also admitted that he participated in breaking windows at two businesses and throwing a brick, large rock, or piece of concrete at uniformed law enforcement officers during the riot.”

“He initiated violence,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff said at Friday’s hearing. “He came to the District of Columbia to engage in violence by hiding his face, throwing rocks and running. He’s a violent coward.”

“He was throwing rocks and bricks at windows where people, customers and children were inside,” she said. “He charged the police line with bricks.”

Prosecutors sought and received a 36-month sentence for Powell, a U.S. Army veteran, but D.C. Superior Court Judge Lynn Leibovitz suspended all but four months on condition he successfully complete two years of supervised probation. WashingtonTimes

Video: Anti-Fascist, Trump Protesters Applaud Speech Comprised Of Hitler Quotes

A Trump supporter named Shad pretending to be a protester grabbed a bullhorn and addressed the crowd with the very words of the Führer, only slightly altered to fit today’s current events.

What remained the same, of course, was the socialism and the class warfare. BizPacReview

Video:  Anti-Fascist, Trump protesters applaud speech comprised entirely of Hitler quotes

At the Impeach Trump March in Chicago 7/2/17. A group of protesters applaud a speech comprised almost entirely of Adolf Hitler quotes given by Shad Daley. This was 20 seconds after saying they need to fight fascism. After the speech, the organizing member of refusefascism.org was desperate to get Shad more involved. Another wonderful example of how the left doesn’t understand their own hypocrisy and ignorance.

Rough Transcript:

Ladies, Gentleman, and non-binary members of this congregation:
I would like to thank everyone for coming out today to support the constitutional rule of law, I stand here today, a veteran of these United States armed forces, and a proud 21st century patriot. I would like to take this opportunity to talk about this oppressive regime, and the repressive regime that constitutes capitalism as a whole.

We are Socialists, we are enemies of the capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with it’s unfair salaries, rights it’s unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.

Benefit to the community precedes benefit to the individual… The state should retain supervision and each property owner should consider himself appointed by the state. It is his duty not to use his property against the interests of others among his own people. This is the crucial matter. This American Nation will always retain its right to control the owners of property… A policy of laissez faire in this sphere is not only cruelty to the individual guiltless victims but also to the nation as a whole.

For there is one thing we must never forget… the majority can never replace the man.

Life is like a mirror, if you frown at it, it frowns back, if you smile it returns the greeting.

Donald Trump seems to think that if you tell a big enough lie, and tell it frequently enough, that it will be believed. It’s not the truth that matters, but victory.

The doom of a nation can be averted only by a storm of flowing passion, but only those who are passionate themselves can arouse passion in others.

 

New Jersey Homeland Security Officially Lists Antifa As A Domestic Terrorist Organization

Terrorism:  “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.”

The Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness in New Jersey has officially designated Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization following months of sporadic violence across the country…

The DHS in New Jersey has been taking notes of these violent incidents and seen fit to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist movement under the heading “Anarchist Extremists: Antifa.”

“In the past year, Antifa groups have become active across the United States, employing a variety of methods to disrupt demonstrations,” New Jersey government states. The advisory, which includes a reference to Milo Yiannopoulos’ canceled speaking event at UC Berkeley, states how Antifa uses everything from real-world physical violence to online “doxing” tactics, which it uses to scare and intimidate individuals into shutting up.

In April, alleged Antifa members brawled with supporters of Donald Trump and conservatives at the “Battle for Berkeley.” Various acts of violence were also committed in cities like Boston, MA and Portland, OR, where alleged members of the violent leftist group fought against Republicans and supporters of Donald Trump who marched in protest of leftist intolerance. This past weekend, a gathering of alleged Antifa members disrupted a pro-Trump rally in Philadelphia through physical violence. HeatSt

 

Antifa Plans To Burn Flags And Desecrate Graves In Gettysburg

Gettysburg, in Pennsylvania, was the scene of a great battle in 1863 between soldiers of the Union and the Confederacy, a battle that
is cited as a turning point in the Civil War. It is  a major national attraction, especially at Independence Day.

The left-wing black-clad paid Antifa anarchists plan to burn flags and desecrate graves to Gettysburg.  There are only a few Confederate graves at Gettysburg, most are Union graves.

The anti-history crowd responsible for the eradication of Civil War statues and monuments around the country is destroying tourism in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Much of the original Gettysburg battlefield is preserved and maintained by the National Park Service. The Gettysburg History Museum, a separate entity, is also a well-frequented attraction. Or it was.  And it’s the Museum that’s publicly lamenting the damage they claim is caused by extreme revisionists.

For their refusal to surrender fact to immature and insecure emotion, the museum, along with the battlefield will be subjected to militant anti-history protests planned by Antifa groups on the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. These Antifa groups plan to burn Confederate battle flags and desecrate graves.  Legalinsurrection

Gettysburg

Gettysburg National Cemetery is the final resting place for more than 3,500 Union soldiers killed in the Battle of Gettysburg, a Union victory often cited as a turning point in the Civil War. Numerous monuments stand in both the cemetery and battlefield to commemorate the Union and Confederate troops who fought there. At the cemetery’s dedication on November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln rose to deliver “a few appropriate remarks,” now known as the Gettysburg Address…

After the battle, bodies lay scattered throughout Gettysburg’s farmlands. Burial work commenced quickly as fears of epidemic rose.  The dead were hastily buried in shallow graves on the battlefield, crudely identified by pencil writing on wooden boards. Rain and wind began eroding the impromptu graves, and Gettysburg’s citizens called for the creation of a soldiers’ cemetery for the proper burial of the Union dead.

With the support of the Pennsylvania Governor, a committee formed to select an appropriate site for the cemetery and oversee the interment of Union remains.  The site chosen encompassed the hill from which the Union center repulsed Pickett’s Charge.  State-appropriated funds purchased the property, and the reburial process began four months after the battle on October 27, 1863.

Confederate burials did not receive placement in the national cemetery.  Efforts in the 1870s by Southern veterans’ societies eventually relocated 3,200 Confederate remains to cemeteries in Virginia, Georgia, and the Carolinas, such as Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. A few Confederates do remain interred at Gettysburg National Cemetery.  nps.gov – Gettysburg National Cemetery
