Bannon indicted on contempt charges for defying Failed Trump Coup subpoena

No.960190 ViewReplyOriginalReport

WASHINGTON (AP) — Steve Bannon, a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump, was indicted Friday on two counts of criminal contempt of Congress after he defied a subpoena from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The Justice Department said Bannon, 67, was indicted on one count for refusing to appear for a deposition last month and the other for refusing to provide documents in response to the committee’s subpoena. He is expected to surrender to authorities on Monday and will appear in court that afternoon, a law enforcement official told the AP. The person was granted anonymity to discuss the case.

The indictment comes after a parade of Trump administration officials — including Bannon — have defied requests and demands from Congress over the past five years with little consequence, including during Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. President Barack Obama’s administration also declined to charge two of its officials who defied congressional demands.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said Bannon’s indictment reflects the Justice Department’s “steadfast commitment” to the rule of law. Each count carries a minimum of 30 days of jail and as long as a year behind bars.

The indictment came as a second expected witness, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, defied his own subpoena from the committee on Friday and as Trump has escalated his legal battles to withhold documents and testimony about the insurrection.

If the House votes to hold Meadows in contempt, that recommendation would also be sent to the Justice Department for a possible indictment.

Oregon reinstates teachers fired for not using faggot pronouns

No.963381 ViewReplyOriginalReport

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Student demonstrators and adult counter-protesters clashed outside Grants Pass High School in Oregon during a student-led walkout against the reinstatement of two educators who expressed public support for educational policies that favor a student’s biological sex over their gender identity, authorities said.

Students left class Tuesday to protest a Nov. 9 school board vote to reinstate former North Middle School assistant principal Rachel Damiano and former science teacher Katie Medart.

Several adults from religious groups showed up to demonstrate against the students and between 200 to 300 people wound up outside the high school, the Mail Tribune reported.

Police detained several people, including a student who they said spit on a counter-protester and a teen who tried to intervene in another student’s arrest.

In a statement, the Grants Pass Police Department said they sent officers to the high school and middle schools at the district’s request. The crowds at the middle schools were small and peaceful, the department said.

Damiano and Medart were fired last July after an independent investigation found they used district resources to promote a movement they dubbed “I Resolve.” The school board reversed course and reinstated them last week after one board member changed their vote.

The movement’s website says it believes school bathrooms and locker rooms should be assigned based on students’ biological sex and not their gender identity. The teachers also don’t want to teachers to be required to use a student’s preferred transgender pronouns.

Threats to dox jury if Rittenhouse not guilty

VIDEO: Racist Relative of George Floyd Threatens Kyle Rittenhouse Jury Members
We all remember last summer when this country was turned inside out and burned because a cop kneeled on George Floyd’s neck. Suddenly, a Marxist group called Black Lives Matter (BLM) was burning things down and marching through the streets, claiming this was somehow stopping racism.

Liberal politicians joined in and all the rules about staying home for COVID were suddenly ignored. Then, another black man had a run-in with police after a violent situation and was shot, causing more riots.

One of those riots in the small city of Kenosha, Wisconsin is where a 17-year-old called Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself from violent Antifa and BLM thugs, killing three white leftists who were trying to murder him.

Now, his trial is underway and George Floyd’s nephew has put out a video that threatens any juror who doesn’t convict Rittenhouse of murder.

Floyd’s Nephew Goes on Violent Rant
Floyd’s nephew is a man called Cortez Rice. He recently went online to brag about how he got into the home of a Minnesota judge who’s in charge of the Daunte Wright trial. Rice also said he knows Rittenhouse jurors are being followed and doxxed by people.

Rice said he knows “people” who have surveillance “up in there” and are making sure to take photos and follow jurors around.

True or not, Rice’s threat is clear. All those involved in the Rittenhouse trial must return a guilty verdict and put the kid behind bars. Otherwise, they’ll face consequences from a secret army of far-left psychopaths who’ve been following them around.

It’s not like Rice is just some random guy. He’s BLM royalty. He’s also got legions of supporters. a leftist journalist called Andrew Mercado – popped up in comments to pressure Rice to go all out after anyone who doesn’t give the right verdict.

80 crowbar-wielding looters in California collecting taxes.

No.966007 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Eighty looters ransacked a Nordstrom store in California's Bay Area on Saturday night, injuring at least three employees in a raid that lasted less than a minute.

The large group,wearing ski masks and carrying crowbars, rushed the Walnut Creek store, stole an undetermined amount of merchandise and fled in their vehicles.

During the theft, two Nordstrom workers were punched and kicked, while another was sprayed with pepper spray. All three individuals were treated for their injuries on scene.

Walnut Creek police have arrested three people in connection to the incident and they are facing various charges including robbery, conspiracy, burglary, possession of stolen property and a weapons charge.

The brazen robbery comes as Bay Area businesses reduce their hours due to a spate of brazen shoplifting incidents. Locals are also slamming woke San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin over his failure to prosecute thefts.

San Francisco has also seen an uptick in property theft since a local law downgraded the theft of property less than $950 in value from a felony charge to a misdemeanor in 2014. Store staff and security now tend not to pursue or stop thieves who have taken anything worth less than $1,000.

J.P. Morgan CEO Backtracks on Joke about Chinese Communist Party

No.968082 ViewReplyOriginalReport

J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon backtracked on his joke that the lifespan of his financial behemoth will exceed that of the Chinese Communist Party’s.

“The Communist Party is celebrating its 100th year — so is JPMorgan,” Dimon remarked during speech at Boston College on Tuesday. “I’d make a bet that we last longer.”

He noted that his words could count as criminalized speech in China, making a snide comment about the regime’s authoritarian surveillance capabilities.

“I can’t say that in China,” Dimon added. They are probably listening anyway.”

On Wednesday, the Wall Street leader apologized for any offense he may have caused by his statement and attempted to clarify his intentions.

“I regret and should not have made that comment. I was trying to emphasize the strength and longevity of our company,” Dimon said in a release.

“I regret my recent comment because it’s never right to joke about or denigrate any group of people, whether it’s a country, its leadership, or any part of a society and culture,” he lamented. “Speaking in that way can take away from constructive and thoughtful dialogue in society, which is needed now more than ever.”

During a press briefing Wednesday, a Chinese official, Zhao Lijian, brushed off Dimon’s quip and accused media outlets of trying to over hype the episode as part of a “publicity stunt.”

Continuing business operations in China has posed a conflict of interest for many U.S. companies recently given the country’s egregious human rights violations and unfair trade practices. Dimon appeared to reassure the government of his commitment to keep J.P.Morgan’s relationship with China, in spite of greater animosity between Beijing and Washington.

Dimon recently visited Hong Kong, the location of his corporation’s Asia Pacific headquarters, for a meeting with the bank’s regional chief.
