VIDEO: More than 200 arrested in anti-lockdown protests in Melbourne

Source: Insider Paper

Capsicum spray was used by police to subdue protesters at an anti-lockdown rally in Melbourne, which resulted in several arrests.

After the protest location was changed at the last minute to avoid authorities, approximately 1000 demonstrators gathered in Richmond to protest the city’s COVID restrictions.

The march started out peacefully, but quickly became out of control.

There were minor scuffles as well as a violent clash involving a small group of protesters.

Biden overruled Blinken and Austin's attempts to extend US presence in Afghanistan


Washington (CNN)In their new book "Peril," journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa explore the opening months of Joe Biden's presidency, including how Biden was hellbent not to let the military stop him from withdrawing from Afghanistan and how Donald Trump's shadow hangs over the Biden presidency.

The book explores Biden's determination to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan despite resistance from top advisers. Biden was resolute on getting US troops out, having wrestled with the issue for nearly 20 years -- and having watched, as vice president, military and national security leaders box in then-President Barack Obama in his first year when he wanted to end the US war in Afghanistan.

Biden believed the military manipulated Obama.

"The military doesn't fuck around with me," Biden told others in 2009, implying they had with Obama, according to the book.

Ohio House Republican, Calling Trump 'a Cancer,' Bows Out of 2022

Source: New York Times

WASHINGTON — Calling former President Donald J. Trump “a cancer for the country,” Representative Anthony Gonzalez, Republican of Ohio, said in an interview on Thursday that he would not run for re-election in 2022, ceding his seat after just two terms in Congress rather than compete against a Trump-backed primary opponent.

Mr. Gonzalez is the first, but perhaps not the last, of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Mr. Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to retire rather than face ferocious primaries next year in a party still in thrall to the former president.

The congressman, who has two young children, emphasized that he was leaving in large part because of family considerations and the difficulties that come with living between two cities. But he made clear that the strain had only grown worse since his impeachment vote, after which he was deluged with threats and feared for the safety of his wife and children.

Mr. Gonzalez said that quality-of-life issues had been paramount in his decision. He recounted an “eye-opening” moment this year: when he and his family were greeted at the Cleveland airport by two uniformed police officers, part of extra security precautions taken after the impeachment vote.

For those demanding that we "tax the rich".....

...my wife is working on it. But as with criminal prosecutions, the development of legislation and policy isn't an instantaneous thing.

My wife rented an apartment in DC in July, on the assumption she'd be returning to her office...

One Person Hurt in Shooting Outside High-End Chinese Restaurant in Manhattan: Cops


A shooting outside a popular restaurant in New York City's Upper East Side has left a man injured and sent diners running for their lives on Wednesday.

Police say the gunman appeared to have targeted two men dining outdoors at high-end Chinese restaurant Phillipe Chow on East 60th Street. Shots were fired around 10:30 p.m. and a bullet struck a 28-year-old man in the leg. He was transported to Cornell Hospital where he's expected to recover, police said.

The violence initially began as a robbery, according to police sources. A man in his 30s had his Rolex stolen but another man put up a fight and the shooting ensued.

No arrests have been made but police said two men in their 20s fled the scene in a blue sedan heading eastbound.

In cases you were wondering why a former Police Captain won the Mayoral Primary.

So the QANON crowd thinks the 9/18 rally is a "false flag" operation to make them look violent...

...but what if that's what the Deep State wants them to think so they don't show up and everyone says nobody's supporting Trump.

...but what it they think that's what the Deep State WANTS them to think, so they should show up anyway.

...but what if.....
