We live in terrible times. In where those entrusted to protect us are terrorizing our citizens:
Protests erupted for the fourth straight night Friday in New Haven, Connecticut, after police opened fire on a car near the Yale University campus, shooting and wounding a woman inside.
Stephanie Washington, 22, was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries following the shooting by an officer from Yale and another from the adjacent town of Hamden, university officials said in a statement.
“No weapons were observed at the scene,” Connecticut State Police Sgt. Dwight Washington said in a statement.
“I am so deeply sorry to the individuals who were involved that this ever occurred,” said the mayor of Hamden, Connecticut.
A right-wing “patriot” group that detained hundreds of migrants at gunpoint at the southern border this week after raising thousands of dollars online was notified by crowdfunding giants PayPal and GoFundMe that its fundraising campaigns have been shut down, dealing a major blow to the militia’s operation.
Known as the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), the militia has been patrolling a remote stretch of the New Mexico desert near the Mexico border for months with heavily armed members reportedly detaining dozens of migrants a day.
The F.B.I. on Saturday arrested the leader of a right-wing militia that was detaining migrant families at gunpoint near the border in southern New Mexico, as the group faced a torrent of criticism for its tactics.
Hector Balderas, New Mexico’s attorney general, said federal agents had arrested the leader, Larry Mitchell Hopkins, who had been operating under the alias Johnny Horton Jr. Mr. Balderas said in a statement that Mr. Hopkins was arrested on charges of firearms possession by a felon.
“This is a dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families,” Mr. Balderas said. “Today’s arrest by the F.B.I. indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes.”
The politicians are failing us once again. Robert Mueller has failed to make the case for impeachment. And Democrats want to play political games by officially taking impeachment off the table. They want to be able to run against what they believe is a weakened president. They are assuming their party will sweep the elections in 2020. We can’t base our national survival on what they believe Democrats are convinced will happen. They also thought that Hillary would beat Trump in 2016.
Therefore it is up to us, We The People, to act and demand Trump be forced from office.
With all good dictators, they don’t make mistakes. If there was a breach at mar-a-lago then it’s someone else who is to blame. And if that someone else complains they are removed. Eventually there will be no one else to fire. Because only Donald Trump is competent:
The Secret Service didn’t make a mistake in the Zhang case, but Trump wants a Secret Service director who will not try to keep his properties secure. Randolph Ailes is out as Secret Service Direct possibly because he wanted better security at Trump’s properties.
The Secret Service spoke out about the security issues at Mar-a-Lago and the result was Trump trashing national security to likely place one of his own loyalists in charge. Ailes was also fired because he was loyal to former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, but never underestimate the fact that competence and following the law are traits that will always be punished by Donald Trump.
