More drunken ranting from unfair and unbalanced.

How droll.

A prosecutor who withdrew from the Roger Stone case after Justice Department leaders intervened to recommend a lighter sentence intends to testify before Congress that he and his colleagues were repeatedly pressured to cut Stone "a break," and were told that it was because of his relationship with President Donald Trump.

"What I heard – repeatedly – was that Roger Stone was being treated differently from any other defendant because of his relationship to the President," Aaron Zelinsky, one of four prosecutors who quit the case, plans to tell the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday, according to his prepared testimony. "I was also told that the acting U.S. Attorney was giving Stone such unprecedentedly favorable treatment because he was 'afraid of the President.'"


Zelinsky will appear alongside antitrust prosecutor John Elias, who plans to testify that Attorney General William Barr personally ordered the Justice Department's Antitrust Division to launch politically motivated reviews of 10 cannabis mergers.

Between May 29 and May 31 of this year, 25 people were murdered and 85 shot in Chicago.

On May 31 alone, 18 people were murdered.

Interestingly enough, not one by police, and not one of their names are known by these 'protesters', who don't have a clue what they are protesting.

You don't seem to understand that niceties, a soft touch, appeasement and rewarding the bad behavior of one race for decades is exactly why **SOME Members of the Black Community, namely those identifying with "Black Lives Matter / Antifa" along with their White Dupes ** now feel emboldened to tear down and attack our Virginia and American history while having no factual knowledge of that history they profess to hate. Yet these Americans have been given special status and have been treated like children for FAR TOO LONG. It is plain that "equality" is not what they now demand. Having received untold trillions of dollars in special treatment as reward for their tantrums, the Black Lives Matter / Antifa Terrorists and their White Liberal Dupes now have nothing left to demand except that they be allowed to riot, pillage, loot and burn without consequence. There is no "nice" way to put an end to this.

Hardworking, industrious Americans of all races today cannot give or bestow upon anyone what it takes to improve their lot in life and money can't buy it. Help can't be given if the premises are false. It's called appeasement- and it only results in more of the same behavior, as those appeased once are never satisfied.
As to dependency among the Black Lives Matter mobs and their racist supporters, that is a conversation that needs to occur, since there are elements of truth in these statements. Ask President Lyndon Johnson and all of his Democrat successors, who banked on that.

Some people can't handle the truth. What can I tell you about that man in front of me with his hand out making demands and destroying our American heritage in the public square? Simply he is not my equal. Many have called me a racist for that question and yet I did not speak of race at all. Yet am I wrong? No, they demand Equality, they demand free- how is that equal to those of all races currently producing in our society which they claim they deserve without earning? It is long past time for Honest Genuine Equality- time to eliminate the Welfare State and tell them to go get a job or make their own law-abiding job and earn that which they claim they deserve, that is a true and honest Equality! When your results are the product of your investment, be it time, labor or intellect, when American citizens of all races and backgrounds are expected to reap what they sow- then and only then will there be Equality- an Equality can never be measured in outcome but only in opportunity! Since the 1960s, hardworking American Producers have, through Affirmative Action and countless other confiscatory wealth transfer programs- bent over backwards to level that field of opportunity. Now over two generations of sacrifice by all working Americans and the White Race specifically- and nothing good for our society has been gained. Just how is that possible? Maybe the problem is in what we are doing, allowing politicians to campaign on those massive handouts instead of simply demanding people be responsible for themselves and their offspring. In reality, Democrats and far too many Big Government Republican Establishment politicians seeking votes have NO Desire to fix the problem.

Today we are witnessing the grandchildren of Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson and all of The Great Society "Black Lives Matter" and "Antifa" forebears who have bought into the Welfare State. It's past time for Affirmative Action & all the give aways to end. Black's can only be free when the government quits interfering with their well being . Those on welfare have done so for decades . How can we expect anyone to take pride in anything they do if it's not earned.

Protesters in San Francisco, taking a breather from defecating in the streets and leaving needles on the sidewalks, tear down statue of US Grant.

Who led the successful fight against slavery.

I guess democrats are still sore about having their slaves taken away.

Tnank you Virtus for your valuable Public Service message below, posting the bio of the organizer behind the "Northern Piedmont CHapter of the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy." Many Fauquier residents paying attention in February, 2017 noted this group's thinly-disguised, anti-American, anit-U.S. President Trump demonstration against his very modest efforts to secure our American border and ban placed upon incoming travelers from a few Islamic Terror Host nations, highlighted by a radical Imam speaking Farzi in our Warrenton Courthouse Square.

By their sustained efforts in our local Courthouse Square to undermine our U.S. President performing his constitutional duties to protect the American people- and their other subversive actions- we shall know them.

The Interfaith Center Demonstrator posting below who threatens to take pictures of law-abiding Warrenton citizens who may be passing by the demonstration Saturday morning, "...showing their faces in public means we can find their homes..." hardly sounds like the teachings of any traditional Christian faith or church I've ever attended, and serves to unmask the darker forces behind the "Interfaith Center" Marxist Revolutionary Facade.

Kim Bobo, co-executive director of the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy's bio:

This Occupy Warrenton Interfaith Center / Antifa / Black Lives Matter / Straight Outta Warrenton / Warrenton Strong / Islamist Congregation Movement does not bode well for Fauquier's peaceful, law-abiding citizens denied their public safety and security rights to shop, dine, run errands or even drive through their beloved Main Street community in domestic peace and tranquility beginning this Saturday Morning at 10:00 AM and every announced Saturday through Labor Day. Sadly, many citizens will avoid the area all day Saturdays from now on- and the local business there will suffer immensely as a result.

However, if this cancer in our community remains unchallenged, we can accurately predict this Interfaith Center and its band of Marxist Revolutionaries who are playing with fire will end up badly damaging Old Town Warrenton and impoverishing hard-working, peace-loving, diverse, multicultural, hithertofore racially tolerant Fauquier Taxpayers in an Ultimate Test of that tolerance and patience.

One wonders which republican governor is responsible for all the racism in Virginia.

McAuliffe? Kaine? Northam? Warner? Robb? Wilder? Baliles? Godwin? Stanley?

Anyone else notice how when democrats take over, things go to hell very, very quickly?
nonewtaxes · June 18, 2020 at 11:38 pm
Its time to rethink the John Marshall statue. He owned slaves. Let us also change the name of Marshall,Va. Let us also rethink his homestead as a monument.

Virgil for Action how can you rally when that slave owner is looking over you?/
Sammy · June 18, 2020 at 7:11 pm
the dinkey farmer says two can play so bring your cameras cuz they won't likely wear hoods, showing their faces in public means we can find their homes for future protests if we need new places for free speech away from shop owners and restaurants
Virtus · June 18, 2020 at 7:08 pm
Say their names - senseless killing if an elderly white couple- the Marinos - killed while visiting their son's grave in a veteran's cemetery in Delaware
Virtus · June 18, 2020 at 7:02 pm
AmericanPatriot · June 18, 2020 at 5:41 pm
Say their names?

How about Justine Damond, murdered by a somali cop in Minneapolis.

Does she count?
DonkeyFarmer · June 18, 2020 at 3:45 pm
Thanks Virtus, I read Kim Bobo's bio. What do you know!? A radical leftist, in the spirit of Chicago's most well-known community organizer.

Looks like the Democrat party is using the tragedy of George Floyd to hold political rallies and fundraising events.

Two can play at this game.
Virtus · June 18, 2020 at 3:38 pm

Socialist leaning protests marketed as interfaith vigils are allowed to occur every Sat, yes every Sat until Labor Day! While these vigils are supposed to end at 10:45 AM there will most likely be spillover, keeping many residents away from shopping, dining, etc.

Who do you think is going to pay for weekly police presence and traffic control - you the taxpayer!

Kim Bobo, co-executive director of the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy's bio:

Note: The Feb 2017 "interfaith event" was a protest and was anything but inclusive of all religions.
