Kenosha Mayor Does Not Want President Trump To Visit 'At This Point In Time'

President Trump will travel to Kenosha, Wis. on Tuesday to survey the damage from last week's protests in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake. But the city's Democratic mayor, John Antaramian, would rather he didn't.

"Realistically, from our perspective, our preference would have been for him not to be coming at this point in time," Antaramian told NPR's Weekend Edition on Sunday. "All presidents are always welcome and campaign issues are always going on. But it would have been, I think, better had he waited to have for another time to come."

The White House announced late Saturday that Trump will visit Kenosha this week, as he leans into a law and order message that has emerged as a dominant theme of his reelection bid. The president has decried the violence in Kenosha, alluding to it at last week's Republican National Convention to accuse his November rival, Joe Biden, of failing to address "rioters and criminals spreading mayhem in Democrat-run cities."

The president's rhetoric has been denounced by Democrats, including Wisconsin's Democratic lieutenant governor, Mandela Barnes, who told CNN on Sunday the state did not need a visit from the president.

"I don't know how given any of the previous statements that the president made, that he intends to come here to be helpful, and we absolutely don't need that right now," Barnes said.

Autopsy Results From Killings By White Vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse Show Massive Damage To Bodies

This is what happens when a 17-year-old with an AR-15 is let loose on the streets after having been hyped up on right-wing rhetoric and Donald Trump worshipping. What could go wrong?

Charges against Rittenhouse were officially filed in Wisconsin on Thursday, and included two homicide counts and one attempted homicide count. Rittenhouse was also charged with two counts of recklessly endangering safety and possession of a dangerous weapon by a juvenile.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday identified the two people killed as Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and the injured victim as Gaige Grosskreutz.

Rosenbaum followed Rittenhouse and threw a plastic bag at him in the parking lot of the auto repair shop Car Source Auto Service, according to the complaint. Based on a video prosecutors reviewed, Rosenbaum approached Rittenhouse following a loud bang. After four more bangs, Rosenbaum fell to the ground. After allegedly shooting Rosenbaum, Rittenhouse made a phone call and said, “I just killed somebody,” the complaint said. An autopsy found that Rosenbaum was shot five times — in the right groin, back, left hand, left thigh and right side of his forehead, according to the complaint.

Rittenhouse was then chased by protestors and fell, according to the complaint. At that point, Huber tried to pull Rittenhouse’s gun away when he was allegedly shot and killed, according to the complaint. Rittenhouse then allegedly shot Grosskreutz, who had his hands in the air, in the right arm, according to the complaint.

Huber’s autopsy showed he had a gunshot wound to his chest that perforated his heart, aorta, pulmonary artery and right lung, the complaint said.

The long gun allegedly used in the shootings was a Smith & Wesson AR-15 style, .223 rifle, court records show.

He's such a man that he can only take on women when he's not armed.

This is how MLK was depicted in 1967 to scare white Americans

Same as it ever was...

Ex-Boston Police Union Pres. Charged With Raping 4 More Children

A former head of Boston's police union already charged with raping a young relative now faces 16 new charges and accusations that he sexually assaulted and abused four more children, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Patrick Rose, a former Boston police officer and president of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association, was arrested on child sex charges earlier this month. Those charges stemmed from allegations he sexually assaulted a young relative starting when she was 7.

Rose was arraigned Tuesday on the 16 new charges, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins' office. There are 11 counts of child rape and five counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.

Is Kyle Rittenhouse the new George Zimmerman?

The reason I ask is because there are some on this site that could go toe-to-toe with Ann Coulter, Tucker Carlson, and Aubrey Huff in regard to defending his actions.

Are BLM Protestors solely responsible for rioting and looting?

Personally, I'm not convinced that they are and most of the destruction is result of WHITE MAGA provocateurs that we'll find out about eventually.

New Hot-Mic Video: What Trump Told His Lawyer When He Didn't Know a Camera Was Rolling

EXCLUSIVE: A hot-mic video captured Donald Trump bragging about threatening the Better Business Bureau to change Trump University’s failing grade. Watch Trump when he didn't know a camera was rolling.

On December 10, 2015, Donald Trump took time off from campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination to spend hours sitting for a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit alleging that he and Trump University had defrauded people who had plunked down thousands of dollars to learn the secrets of his financial success as a developer. During a break in the proceedings, the camera continued to roll. And Trump and his attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, apparently unaware they were being recorded, were captured discussing the case.

In this 13-minute hot-mic video—a copy of which was provided to Mother Jones—Trump boasted about how his company threatened the Better Business Bureau to change the D rating it had assigned Trump University to an A. He complained about the federal judge overseeing the suit, Gonzalo Curiel, elliptically talking about how to challenge him and referring to “the Spanish thing.” Trump also griped that he had been sued personally in this case, and Petrocelli had to explain to Trump that he, not just Trump University itself, was in the legal crosshairs because Trump had been accused of making false statements to promote the venture. And Petrocelli pointed out that the case was not a lock for Trump because some of Trump’s “guys” had been “sloppy.”

This tape shows Trump in the wild, trying to figure out how to contend with a judge who he believed was not on his side (perhaps with the use of a racist attack), bragging about pressuring a group that had given his business a low rating, and grousing that he was being held personally responsible for a Trump enterprise accused of scamming people.
