Mixed motives appear with @jsolomonReports release of #Biden inspired firing of #Ukraine prosecutor #VictorShokin's sworn statement. While #JoeBiden2020 may be in jeopardy over #HunterBiden, a new and darker view of Russo-US pipeline war is emerging.

Meet the Proprietors of the Internet's Largest #neoConfederate #Propaganda Machine

by @splcenter splcenter.org/fighting-hate/…
Identity Dixie (ID), a #neoConfederate propaganda group, was instrumental in organizing the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville.

Jason Kessler, who eventually joined #IdentityDixie, secured the permit for the Aug. 12, 2017 event.
The group’s growth is notable considering the tight controls for membership, a power struggle with its parent organization, The Right Stuff (TRS), and the bad press following the bloody and violent protests at Unite the Right.

Y'all, this is a BFD.

The website in question is @vdare run by white supremacist @peterbrimelow.

WHITE NATIONALISM IS IN A DEPT OF JUSTICE AM BRIEFING.

Today, they goofed and it slipped out. But these are the groups informing our policy affecting MILLIONS of people of color.
The hate networks of John Tanton, who died in July, have infiltrated the Trump administration, where they've injected their sick and twisted ideologies which metastasize into things like caging brown kids for profit.

Tanton was good buddies with Vdare's Brimelow. (Shocker.)
Sound familiar? Family unification ? Chain migration? Attacking asylum?

Brimelow and Tanton were discussing this in 1995.

Check out what Tanton was thinking about 20 years before that: ending #BirthrightCitizenship

Portland Active Measures aka Provokatsiya.

Anti-establishment Alt R & Alt L work hand in hand to incite ‘both sides’ conflict to gain media attention & cause chaos.

No suprise @msnbc is giving them media attention-chaos will ensue to maintain coverage as the media loves blood
@cnn too. Please give this Active Measures no oxygen/no air time as it will only ensure eventual violence aka #Charlottesville.

HorseShoe Theory

Alt L Socialist/Communists (AntiFa) vs Alt Right Facists.

Keep up the coverage of the #PortlandRally aka #Provokatsia @cnn & @MSNBC and you will endure violence.

A Proudboy just interviewed is from Miami (dirty trickster) & his goal was to waste Portland’s resources.

See Trump tweet, it’s an op to paint the left as terrorists.

Las primeras interesadas en que sus performances no se salgan de madre DEBERÍAN de ser las feministas: si así de fácil va a ser encaminarlas, las van a usar de gatillo de algo muy feo.
Si van a ir vandalizando, agrediendo, pretendiendo intimidar a unos hombres sí (como el reportero) y a otros hombres no (como el agresor), gritando y quemando cosas, infiltrarles LO QUE SEA va a ser juego de niñAs.
Ni son las únicas en estar HASTA LA MADRE de algo relevante, ni ponerse de pechito para ser vehículo de algo terrible abona a su causa.

Van a tener que usar mucho más el cerebro. Pero un chingo más.

It wasn't just any group of protesters, either. It was #JewsAgainstICE, just a couple days after anniversary of Heather Heyer's murder much the same way in #Charlottesville by a neo-Nazi #UniteTheRight attendee.

Police then pepper sprayed them

washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/08…
"An employee reached by phone at the Wyatt Detention Facility declined to comment early on Thursday. Messages left for the Central Falls Police Department and ICE weren’t immediately returned."

Yeah, I fucking bet they weren't
You can't support driving through Jewish protesters and in the same breath claim you are pro-Jewish because you support Israel fyi

Trump must have just totally forgotten that today is the anniversary of the 2017 Nazi rampage through Charlottesville, a tragedy he genuinely cared deeply about and did not have to be dragged kicking and screaming into sort of condemning, then walking back his condemnation.
When you truly care #Charlottesville
The whole “did he praise Nazis or not” thing fundamentally came down to whether the president of the United States stands with or against white supremacist terror.

He keeps answering the question over and over: He’s cool with it. It’s not that big a deal to him.

Today I uploaded my 2017 UTR datasets to @internetarchive. 35,896 #UniteTheRight tweets from August 5 to August 14 and 28,485 #Charlottesville tweets from August 12 to August 14 are now available for download here: archive.org/details/UTRdata
.@edsu and I published research in 2017: news.docnow.io/unitetheright-… This graph shows 16,492 #UniteTheRight tweets that were deleted after Aug 12.

52% of the accounts that got suspended were created on or after August 11. Sock puppets were created en masse to boost the event.
The account polNewsForever was an obvious outlier in UTR graphs. This "news" account representing /pol/ boards from the chans was highly influential in UTR data and pushed narratives that leftists/antifa were responsible for violence.

Why am I angry abt the failure of leaders to address the threat of white supremacy? When #HeatherHeyer was killed I gave a comprehensive analysis of the rise of violent white supremacy under Trump on @MSNBC w/@JoyAnnReid.2 yrs ago. Listen vimeo.com/229429206?ref=… #Charlottesville
I raised #RichardBest, killed by a white supremacist in Portland, #RichardCollins, killed in MD, the bombing if a mosque in Minnesota - all in the months before #Charlottesville. The decorous effort to avoid confronting this danger honestly has only resulted in more violence.
I spoke about the President’s “coterie” - Bannon, Gorka, Miller. His AG, Jeff Sessions. A who’s who of white supremacists. It has been plain from the beginning who the President is & that he is unwilling to stand against this threat. Indeed he has stoked it w/rhetoric & policies.

'They killed my child to try to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her.'
Susan Bro, mother of #HeatherHeyer (May 29, 1985 - August 12, 2017) murdered by a white supremacist two years ago today in #Charlottesville
Heather was working as a waitress whilst putting herself through law school when, on Aug 11 2017, hundreds of white supremacists led by Richard Spencer descended on a campus in #Charlottesville.
Heather watched footage of
neo-Nazis marching with torches, giving fascist salutes
Friends say they were all scared, and although they wanted to go to the counter-protest the next day, decided not to because the situation looked so dangerous. But later on the Friday night, Heather texted saying 'I feel compelled to go, to
show solidarity.'

#Charlottesville 2 yrs old, myths live on. Is it time to consider charging #JasonKessler #UniteTheRight for sedition? His impractical #racist political strategy rejected by vast majority of #Republicans #Democrats, minority groups. "Fire in a crowded theater" is not free speech.
1. The case for sedition rests on premise that #JasonKessler was well aware, by virtue of education, that #UniteTheRight would fail. Motive obscure, but permit was obtained under false pretense. Recent history as #Democrat and #Occupy operative suspicious.
2. Damage to life and property in #Charlottesville rises to the level of a severe disturbance, 3 dead, 19 injured, property damage. #AntifaTerrorists arrival on day 2, not unexpected, showed callous disregard for public safety. Kessler UVA Charlottesville grad knew limitations

By law, vehicles are deadly weapons. #Charlottesville and #Virginia officials were lax with traffic mgmt. Vehicular manslaughter victim #HeatherHeyer died on 4th St, called 'alley' by locals, narrow, only 31.5 ft between buildings. Road also has a steep downward sloping grade.
Pedestrians further endangered by presence of parked cars, including two, obscured by crowd, blocking passage. #NeoNazi #JamesFields recklessly entered the roadway heading downhill, #HeatherFields struck, and ejected from hood upon impact with 2 double parked cars. Many injured.

Two years ago today, white nationalists gathered in #Charlottesville to spread a message of bigotry and intolerance. Their hate-fueled rally culminated in the deaths of three Americans.
Today we remember Heather Heyer, who was killed when a white nationalist drove his car into the crowd of counter-protesters, and Lt. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke Bates, who died in a helicopter crash as they tried to bring stability to the city.
As we mark two years since this tragedy, I stand with the families of those we lost as well as the entire Charlottesville community in denouncing bigotry and radicalism in every form.

Today marks the two-year anniversary of the violence in #Charlottesville, VA. As our suit details, the violence was not spontaneous but, rather, the result of months of online organizing.

We’ll recount in real time the key moments of that August 2017 weekend. #SueANazi
We’re suing the neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and hate groups responsible for the weekend of violence. Learn more at integrityfirstforamerica.org.

@PostOpinions @washingtonpost One major point ignored in conversations about #Charlottesville is that this event was identified as an #ActiveMeasure with Confederate monuments as a strategy by Putin's GRU @ActMeasuresDoc The Ferguson riots were another. @LarrySabato @NPR
Interesting the C'ville Documentary 2019 is "improved", with the addition of multiple interviews all with people seeking to remove statues. 2018 version did not. In 2018 @LarrySabato publicly stated on film that he did not hear any mention of Confederate monuments in the chants.

Trump Signs Bill Revoking Obama-Era Gun Checks for People With Mental Illnesses
The new law nullifies an Obama-backed rule that added people with mental illnesses to the national background check database.

nbcnews.com/news/us-news/t…
PBO recommended the now-nullified regulation in a 2013 memo following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook School, which left 20 first graders and six others dead. The measure sought to block some people with severe mental health problems from buying guns.

We have determined that Matthew Q. Gebert, a U.S. State Department official since 2013, oversaw a Washington D.C.-area chapter of a white nationalist organization, hosted white nationalists in his home & published white nationalist propaganda online. splcenter.org/hatewatch/2019…
Gebert operated under the alias “Coach Finstock,” based on a character from the 1985 movie Teen Wolf. His wife, Anna Vukovic, is also active in online white nationalist forums. She uses the pseudonym “Wolfie James,” possibly a reference to the same movie.
To report this story, @MichaelEHayden studied “Coach Finstock’s” online presence & spoke with Gebert’s neighbors, wife & sources who have attended gatherings of white nationalists at Gebert’s home.

🛑 THIS. ENDS. NOW. 🛑

After the horrific event at #Charlottesville, VA... our @POTUS addresses the media.

This was done shortly after the murder of innocent protesters; however the full situation was not known at the time.

Regardless, here are @POTUS Trump’s initial comments:
No SANE person could even remotely twist what POTUS Trump stated and magically turn it into a racist statement.

His comments were that of unity, love of country and of each other; REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION or CREED!
Of course, Pres Trump’s initial comments weren’t good enough for the #FakeNews Media. As such, an impromptu presser was held a few days later. It was at this one where Trump’s comments were taken COMPLETELY and KNOWINGLY out of context. The following is the FULL TRANSCRIPT:
