Former Obama Intelligence Official Helps Secure Bail for Molotov Cocktail-Throwing NYC Lawyer
A former Obama administration intelligence official who worked in both the Departments of State and Defense has guaranteed bail for a human rights lawyer accused of firebombing a police vehicle in New York City.
The former official, Salmah Rizvi, told a judge the alleged firebomber is her “best friend.” Rizvi, now an attorney at the D.C.-based law firm Ropes & Gray, helped secure the release of fellow lawyer Urooj Rahman by agreeing to be a suretor for her bail. That means Rizvi is liable for the full cost of the $250,000 bail if Rahman fails to obey the court’s orders.
Rahman was released to home confinement over the objections of government attorneys after her arrest on Saturday for throwing a lit Molotov cocktail through the window of an NYPD vehicle. Evidence presented by prosecutors included images of Rahman holding a Molotov cocktail in the passenger seat of a van that was later found to be full of the necessary materials for making the explosive devices.
U.S. District Judge Margo Brodie acknowledged the strong evidence against Rahman, who was also accused of distributing the incendiary devices to other rioters, but agreed to grant her bail due to the “willingness of family and friends to sign on as suretors,” according to a report from Law360.
How many Black people did Sweden import in order to have people to complain about treatment of black people in that country? Worth remembering that most of the non-Swedes their risked their lives to illegally enter that country because it is such a better life than the place their own people ruined that caused them to leave. With the US, there is the pretence, and at this point it is a pretence, that Africans were forced to leave their homes and brought to the US. But in Sweden, Canada and pretty much everywhere else, they risked a lot to break into these countries. To borrow from the Bard: “Sharper than the serpent’s tooth, the ungrateful immigrant”.
Once again we see that with the left, the point is never the point. The REVOLUTION IS ALWAYS the point.
3. And in that exact spirit:
Despite an imposed curfew, Washington D.C. saw intense protests and riots due to the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police in Minneapolis, with vandals defacing a statue of Polish-American hero Tadeusz Ko?ciuszko with Black Lives Matter graffiti and slogans directed against U.S. President Donald Trump.
Ko?ciuszko, a colonial war hero who was active supporter of American indepedence from Great Britain was targeted despite his
Security services managed to remove several of the protestors from Lafayette park in front of the White House, but many of the protestors behaved aggressively.
RMF FM radio correspondent Pawe? ?uchowski shared a video in which Ko?ciuszko’ was being vandalized:
“This is how Tadeusz Ko?ciuszko’s statue in Lafayette park was destroyed. This protest has nothing to do with a peaceful manifestation. Now, the statue is covered with vulgar phrases addressed at President Trump. The statue was also spat and urinated on. Shocking.”
Tak zniszczono pomnik Tadeusza Ko?ciuszki w parku Lafayette przed Bia?ym Domem. Ten protest z pokojow? manifestacj? nie ma nic wspólnego. Teraz widniej? na nim mi?dzy innymi wulgarne has?a pod adresem prezydenta Trumpa. Na pomnik równie? sikano, pluto. Szok. @RMF24pl pic.twitter.com/fwdXLGlwoI

Ko?ciuszko was not only a supporter of democracy, a brilliant general, and a supporter of American and Polish independence, but also a fighter for the rights of ethnic and racial minorities. In his will, he had given away a part of his fortune to buy out and free several of Thomas Jefferson’s and other slave-owners’ black slaves.
Both the inexcusable nature of George Floyd’s death and the “irresponsible” nature of mass gatherings in the Netherlands that followed in its wake can both be acknowledged at once, Prime Minister Mark Rutte asserted on Friday during a press conference, in which he announced an easing of restrictions for European tourism. “The images from the US are very intense. What happened there is unacceptable, but it is not only in the United States. Here too, people feel that they are not part of the dream and do not fully count,” Rutte said.
The comments mark the Prime Minister’s first public statement on the issue following four mass protests across major Dutch cities this week in reaction to the death of an unarmed black American at the hands of a police officer in Minnesota. Rutte pointed out his belief that, while Floyd’s death was “unacceptable”, it nevertheless did not justify ignoring the social distancing rules in place to curb the spread of Covid-19.
“I was shocked by the images on the Dam,” Rutte said of Monday’s protest in Amsterdam, which drew a packed crowd of about five thousand people. “Those rules are there so that we can defeat the virus. The virus does not take into account the nature of a demonstration,” he said
(Nice to know at least one national leader remembers yesterday’s global crisis)

(Given that communist Kurdish groups trained hundreds of ANTIFA in the use of deadly force and military tactics, I have to agree with the Turks on this one)
Turkey asked the US on Wednesday to crack down on “Antifa” in Syria, following President Donald Trump’s decision to declare them a terror organisation in response to nationwide mass protests over the police killing of black American George Floyd.
The Antifa (deriving from the German “antifaschistisch”, or anti-fascist) label refers to a range of autonomous anti-fascist organisations and activists who use similar iconography and tactics when physically confronting far-right groups.
Though there is no formal Antifa organisation, as some right-wing commentators have alleged, the symbols and slogans associated with the movement have been used by groups linked to the pro-Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) in northern Syria, including by foreign volunteers.
7. Polish authorities have a more direct way of dealing with communist insurgents. THey remember communism in Poland.
This is how we deal with Antifa in Polandpic.twitter.com/tNsPr4spLl

(I wonder if the polish police officer was saying to the ANTIFA he had on his back, “Call me a NAZI again. C’mon, call me a Nazi”.)
The problem with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s campaign to win a temporary, two-year seat on the United Nations Security Council is the things he has to say in Canada’s name to win.
Thus it was no surprise that as the vote by the UN General Assembly on whether Canada will win one of two available seats in competition with Norway and Ireland approaches, Trudeau has started, predictably, to denounce Israel.
In a strange condemnation of Israel on Tuesday during his daily appearance outside his official residence — while simultaneously criticizing China as if they are equal threats to global peace and security — Trudeau said Canada “deplores” its proposed annexation of parts of the occupied West Bank.
(One gets the feeling that Trudeau mistakes working with corrupt systems and a total lack of principle or ethical standards that prove to be the best for mankind with sophistication and intelligence. I think when he goes with corruption at the UN he thinks that shows a form of adeptness.)

10. The Financing of ANTIFA big reveal. Who pays these guys?
Thank you Johnny U., M., C., Oz-Rita, MissPiggy,
Claim is that ANTIFA has massive weapons caches ready to break out for when the next protestor is shot.
