2 left wing extremists in #Asheville NC charged possessing a weapon of mass destruction + going armed to the terror of the public

They allegedly blew up a pipe bomb IED near the site of the removed Vance Monument (was a big BLM target) as people were leaving July 4th events
Duncan Small and Chioke Fugate are both charged

They were carrying an Anarchist zine 'Life without law' which covers Direct action and other common left wing extremist subjects.

Local story-…
Asheville police did get a threat earlier this week from 'Antifafootsoilders007', it was a little absurd sounding.

Given these arrests and how strange these people are, (Chioke Fugate is a furry) it may be related. FBI/SBI investigating still.

Getting ready to live tweet the Governor's COVID briefing.

Will a reporter ask whether and when he's going to crack down harder? Will TWO reporters ask this question?

Let's see!

You can watch here:

Gov. Cooper runs down case counts, hospitalizations and deaths.
There is real hope we can stop loss of life. First vaccines arrived. I talked with UPS driver who made that delivery - first in country.
We spent months prepping for this moment.

We expect more doses next week after next round of approval.
Still need clarity from feds on how many doses we'll get.
Feds tell us weekly how many doses we get & we need more time to plan. VP Pence said they'd work on it.

While in, one sense, this is certainly cause to celebrate, the devil is always in the details. What the city council is effectively saying is that #reparations for slave racial capitalism requires an INCREASED participation IN slave racial capitalism.

A quick breakdown thread
Here is a copy of the full resolution passed by @CityofAsheville's City Council and signed by @EstherManheimer…
So, first, the celebration part. The power of the language of repair in this document cannot be overstated. The idea of local governance seeing their mission as making amends for slavery and Jim Crow is likewise a game changer and something that should be replicated.

So weird!
A local #Asheville leftist moonbat quote-tweeted me - twice - and blocked me.
Almost as if she didn't want me to see the utter stupidity of their engagement.

Of course, it's widely understood that #BluePrintNC outfits employ people.
Simply reporting information doesn't require an assumption of wrong-doing. Although it is interesting that this immediately came to her mind.
It's almost as if she assumes the worst motives in others.

She apparently deleted that tweet about the PPP $.
Maybe she's fine-tuning her stupidity. We'll see.
But, first - she's perusing my timeline. Where she quote-tweeted this:
