New Battle of Berkeley in an Hour: Based Stickman, Baked Alaska, Brittany Pettibone, Gavin McIness et. al. Facing Antifa Thugs

I’ve been seeing Tweets like this one from yesterday on a number of alt-right sites:

Lauren Southern will be there too.

This is the speaking lineup.

Baked Alaska is leading a multi-ethnic group of Trump supporters to the event. It’s not just for whites only and unlike the lies the leffist media is pushing these are not “violent, far right extremists”, as you can see in the video.

Jack Posobiec reports the antifa intends murderous attacks:

Drudge has the link to the CBS Local San Francisco story at the top of his page now. This is the version produced by other local media that is just as biased and inaccurate as the fake news produced by CBS.

Police officers were out in force Thursday on the UC Berkeley campus and in a nearby park, gearing up for the possibility of yet another day of violent clashes between fringe groups on the right and left in the wake of the cancellation of a visit by conservative commentator Ann Coulter.

On campus, nearly 100 police officers were positioned outside the student union, at the Telegraph Avenue entrance to the university and in Sproul Plaza, where one person was arrested in the morning after refusing to identify himself or remove a surgical mask.

The man, who wasn’t identified, was questioned by university police after briefly holding a sign that officers said was larger than a limit of 30 inches by 30 inches. Despite returning the sign to protestors, police asked the man to remove the mask so they could take a picture, or provide identification. The man refused and was then cuffed in plastic restraints and told he was being arrested on suspicion of obstructing officers.

Even as campus workers set up a perimeter of orange barricades, hundreds of conservative and pro-Coulter protesters were arriving in the morning at the city’s Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park a few blocks to the east.

The protesters have accused Berkeley officials of stifling free speech in their response to plans by a student group, the Berkeley College Republicans, to host controversial speakers like Coulter and former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

The park was the site of previous pro-President Trump rallies that yielded fights, bloody assaults, arrests and second-guessing of the ability of city police to intervene. Some groups descending on Berkeley Thursday vowed to bring makeshift weapons, including sharpened spikes and bike locks, to protect themselves. Others urged participants to be “battle ready.”

In the past, far-right protesters, including white nationalists, have wielded sticks and knives, while counter-protesters with their own weapons have worn all black and covered their faces, employing what are known as black bloc tactics.

That last paragraph is bullshit of the worst kind. Based Stickman had a flag on a flag pole, not weapon. I’ve shown you that the antifa was selling knives to their group, not the White Nationalists, such as Richard Spencer or Jared Taylor.

Here’s an on the ground video posted by Cernovich. I don’t know who made the video. It’s not Cernovich’s voice. Lots of helicopters in the air can be heard over the voice.

The latest I can find. These Tweets are minutes old as I’m posting.

McIness explains what the purpose is.

More later as events warrant.

Determined Ann Coulter to Speak at Berkeley Public Square on Thursday

This story broke about a half hour ago. The situation is fluid and subject to change. The important thing to bear in mind is that the liberal/progressive/Communist police state in Berkeley wants Ann not to speak. If she does speak, some of them would like her dead, which poses problems for law enforcement.

By this point in time, the Berkeley police have had plenty of time to infiltrate the violent criminal thug groups that call themselves the antifa. If a pro-white group were as violent, all its leaders would be under arrest and charged with hate crimes.

The Hill

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter will give a speech at a public plaza at the University of California at Berkeley on Thursday, sparking concerns about massive protests causing safety hazards.

Coulter will speak at Sproul Plaza, the legendary site of the 1960s Free Speech Movements, an area that is open to the public.

UC Berkeley’s chancellor Nicholas Dirks told the Washington Post the school is worried about not being able to screen attendees for weapons.

If the event were inside, the university could use metal detectors and otherwise search for weapons, Dirks said.

“In an open space, you have almost no control over that,” he added, according to the Post report. “The challenges are immense.”

The Post report indicated the school is readying police for the event.

Coulter has repeatedly insisted she will speak on Thursday, despite Berkeley initially canceling the event over safety concerns. Berkeley attempted to move the event date until May 2, but Coulter rejected the proposed change.

“Nice day for an outdoor speech at Berkeley,” Coulter tweeted Monday, sharing a Thursday weather report for the area.

On Monday, the students who initially invited Coulter to speak filed a lawsuit against the school.

The suit accuses “university administrators and campus police” of “repressive actions” to stifle free speech.

Berkeley’s concerns for safety follows massive protests that erupted on campus in February, after the same College Republicans group that invited Coulter brought right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the university.

A Berkeley student who is a member of the student groups that invited Coulter told the Post that he shares the school’s concerns for safety, and they are hoping to find an off-campus space for the talk.

He said Coulter has still insisted she will speak at the public plaza.

“We’re worried about it turning into a huge battle between her security and conservative militia and anti-fascists and others,” student Pranav Jandhyala told the Post. “To have that right in middle of Sproul doesn’t bode well for the image of our school or the city. We’re worried about violence and student safety and our own safety as well. It’s a huge safety concern.”

While I was putting together this post, Breitbart broke the news that the Young Americans for Freedom are pulling out of the Ann Coulter event due to the extreme danger. YAF blames a university administration hostile to free speech for their action. I believe we might call their action cowardly.

Breaking! Judge Blocks Trump’s Sanctuary Cities Funding Order

There’s clearly a lot of foot-dragging going on by the USA government’s lawyers who are supposed to be arguing for President Trump’s policies. Holdovers from the Obama era are sabotaging the rule of law.

Mercury News

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge Tuesday halted President Donald Trump’s executive order stripping sanctuary jurisdictions of federal funding, dealing a blow to the Trump Administration’s efforts to punish so-called sanctuary cities and counties.

With Santa Clara County and San Francisco’s landmark motion for a preliminary injunction approved, the section of the executive order applying to sanctuary jurisdictions will not go into effect until the court rules on the county’s Feb. 3 lawsuit against the administration.

District Judge William Orrick issued a ruling less than two weeks after a hearing on the case. Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez called it a victory for immigrant rights.

“We’re fighting for the United States Constitution and we succeeded after the Trump Administration tried to do an end run around it,” Chavez said in a statement. “The court’s decision is a win for the neediest people in our nation. Seniors in need of food, foster youth in need of shelter and children who need medical care. We’ll continue being a welcoming, safe and diverse community.”

The case has placed Santa Clara and San Francisco at the center of a contentious debate about sanctuary cities and counties. Hundreds of jurisdictions around the country have declared themselves sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants, proclaiming they will not turn those immigrants over to federal agents, despite repeated threats from the Trump Administration.

But an April 14 hearing at the Phillip Burton Federal Building revealed those threats were largely symbolic–federal attorneys confessed they had no idea how President Trump’s executive order stripping sanctuary jurisdictions of federal funding would actually work.

They said the government at this point hasn’t identified any “sanctuary jurisdictions,” must less defined what the term means.

The admissions suggested that the Trump administration has done little so far to translate months of threatening words from the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions into a real anti-sanctuary policy.

Orrick appeared to sense the ambiguity of the policy, at one point asking, “What would the purpose of the executive order be?”

The bolded statement above is an admission that the goal of the left is to import the entire world while making white taxpayers pay every expense for the alien populations.

If that doesn’t scare you, nothing will. To add insult to injury the left, represented by the words of Cindy Chavez, is claiming that the Constitution requires open borders and taxpayer support of illegals.

The time for talk is rapidly drawing to a close. The time for action, real action, draws ever nearer.

Chaos as San Francisco Blackout Shuts Down Everything

Dahboo7 claims there are power outages all over the U.S.

Either the Russians did it or you engage with reality and understand that power outages happen in third world countries like Mexifornia all the time.

Alternatively, this power outage is a dry run created by the Deep State in order to see how people cope with an emergency.

Zerohedge

A massive power outage in San Francisco on Friday morning caused a blackout in neighborhoods across the city, from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a federal courthouse and a BART station, officials said. As SFGates reports, a spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said at least 90,000 customers lost power.

BART’s Montgomery Station was closed due to the outage, which struck after 9 a.m. BART rains were running through Montgomery Station without stopping. Cable cars were also impacted and shuttles were put in place to provide service, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency.

There were reports of traffic lights out in many city intersections, and traffic was backing up on downtown streets. The Phillip Burton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse at 450 Golden Gate Ave. was among the many buildings closed down by the outage.

A PG&E spokesman said the company was trying to determine the cause of the outage, as well as how long it would take to restore power.

The San Francisco Fire Department was responding to calls for service, but reported no injuries as of 10 a.m.

Of course, it could be worse..

So far the Russians have not been blamed.

Obama must make an emergency flight to San Francisco in order to comfort the LGBT snowflakes who are cowering in fear in closets all over the city.

Hey, you liberal dummies. Ann Coulter’s speech isn’t till the 27th. You shut everything down too early.

Breaking: British PM Announces SHOCK General Election on June 8

TERESA MAY. BRITISH PRIME MINISTER.

I’m not sure what motivated the lady from 10 Downing Street, but I sure hope that the outcome is a better deal for Britain as it loses its ties to the European Union.

metro.co.uk

Prime Minister Theresa May has called an early general election.

The PM announced the general election will be held on June 8 in an unexpected speech outside 10 Downing Street.

Justifying the decision, Mrs May said: ‘The country is coming together but Westminster is not.’

She added that ‘division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit’.

Explaining her change of heart on an early election, Mrs May said: ‘I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election.’

She concluded by saying it was ‘with reluctance’ that she reached her decision but added: ‘It is with strong conviction that I believe it is necessary to secure a strong and stable leadership this country needs.’

May took office in July 2016 after her predecessor David Cameron resigned as the European Referendum result was announced.

She had previously said she would stay in office until the next general election in 2020.

Under Britain’s Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, the PM can call an election if two-thirds of lawmakers vote for it.

It is unusual for leaders to make a statement outside Number 10 Downing Street and most prime ministers only use the setting for major announcements.

Her office gave no indication on the subject of the statement.

Her unscheduled speech follows a regular meeting with her senior ministers, May’s office said.

As investors awaited news of May’s statement, sterling fell by almost a cent against the dollar and British government bonds extended gains, with yields on 10-year debt falling to their lowest since mid-October.

Trump Fires Warning Shot in Battle Between Bannon and Kushner

JARED KUSHNER AND STEVE BANNON CAN BE SEEN STARING AT EACH OTHER ACROSS THE TABLE IN THIS PHOTO.

The New York Times published the story featured in this post addressing President Donald Trump’s efforts to smooth over the tensions between his son-in-law Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon. Both advise the president. Numerous reports suggest the two men do not get along because of differences in their views. Bannon is the creator of America First, while Kushner, a lifelong Democrat, is a more liberal globalist.

The story of Trump’s intervention comes as #firekushner became the number one trending hashtag on Twitter, a campaign created by Internet troll Microchip. Read more at the Daily Caller.

New York Times

WASHINGTON — As he grappled on Thursday with his first major decision involving military action, a fed-up and frustrated President Trump turned to his two top aides and told them he had had enough of their incessant knife-fights in the media.

“Work this out,” Mr. Trump said, according to two people briefed on the exchange. The admonition was aimed at Stephen K. Bannon, the tempestuous chief strategist, and Reince Priebus, the mild-mannered chief of staff, over a series of dust-ups with Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, and the top economic adviser, Gary D. Cohn.

But they may not be able to.

The president is said to be aware that a meaningful reconciliation is unlikely between Mr. Bannon, who sees himself as the keeper of Mr. Trump’s campaign promises, and the competing ideologies of Mr. Kushner and Mr. Cohn, a longtime Wall Street executive and a Democrat. And he is considering a shake-up of his senior staff, according to four people with direct knowledge of the process.
