They Don’t Want You To Know: Reddit Mods Remove Viral GP Article About Woman Murdered for Saying ‘All Lives Matter’

Jessica Doty Whitaker

The moderators on Reddit’s “Unpopular Opinions” board have removed the viral Gateway Pundit article about the murder of Jessica Doty Whitaker, who her fiance says was shot in the head for saying “All Lives Matter.”

After the article gained over 15,000 upvotes, putting it in the running for the front page of Reddit, a moderator removed the well-sourced story for violating the rule against “trolling or satire.” There was nothing funny about what happened to her, nor did the post imply there was.

Doty Whitaker was walking by the canal in Indianapolis after a Fourth of July celebration with her fiance and two friends when they were approached by a group of people saying that “Black Lives Matter.”

Her family and fiance have said that when Whitaker responded that “All Lives Matter” the mob grew very aggressive and pulled a gun on them. Her fiance, Jose Ramirez, pulled one out defensively and the situation seemed to cool down. Unfortunately, he says that the group went and hid and waited for them to walk by them again. When they did, they ambushed the couple and shot Whitaker multiple times.

The Gateway Pundit spoke to the young mother’s sister and father for the original story and has maintained contact with them throughout the day.

“It’s heartwrenching to watch my mother explain to my three year old nephew that mommy is an angel in heaven,” Whitaker’s sister Jennifer told TGP, adding that he asks “when we can go get her and bring her back.”

The national media completely ignored the story. Local media downplayed the shooting as “the second in the canal in a week,” lumping her story in with a black teenager who was shot while attempting an armed robbery. They reported it as “according to the victim’s family, the shooting started with an argument over Black Lives Matter and language.” They never mentioned what that language was, the simple phrase that got her killed.

Her story was going largely untold until TGP contacted her family to find out what really happened during the confrontation.

Her father, Robert Doty, confirmed to the Gateway Pundit that neither CNN nor Fox News has reached out for information about the case, despite the murderer still being on the loose.

“Why isn’t anybody outraged about this?” Whitaker’s grandfather asked in a Facebook post. “Is it that BLM was involved or that it was white young adults that [were] the victims?”

Jennifer told TGP that her sister was a Certified Nursing Assistant doing home health care and getting ready to go back to school to become a registered nurse. She hoped to have more children and was always looking to help others.

“Her son was her world, she had the kindest heart and was in no way racist towards anyone,” Jennifer told TGP.

Police are still looking for suspects and have released a video from the area of the murder. Her fiance has provided descriptions of the monsters to law enforcement.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call  the IMPD Homicide Office at 317.327.3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317.262.8477 or (TIPS).

St. Louis Police Shut Down Art Hill in Forest Park After Leftist Groups Threaten to Beat Catholics Again — Hundreds of Catholics Turn Out Anyway!

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 23:49

For the past two weeks Catholics have been meeting on Art Hill in Forest Park at the St. Louis statue to pray the rosary.  This is in response to radical leftists calling for the statue to be removed and for St. Louis City to be renamed.

Two weeks ago the Gateway Pundit called on local Christians to come together for a prayer rally at the statue of St. Louis in Forest Park.

When we arrived for a prayer rally at the St. Louis statue in Forest Park we were met by a very violent, raucous, disrespectful mob of Black Lives Matter activists and leftist radicals.

Local radical leftists smeared our prayer rally as a white nationalist event and KKK meeting knowing this would put our Christian group in mortal danger.

Let me just say this was one of the most frightening gatherings I’ve ever attended as a writer and conservative activist in 16 years.
We posted this video earlier following the rally and the violence that took place against Christians when we left the area.

After most of the Catholics and Christians left the area three Catholic men were viciously beaten by the far left group that remained at the statue.

Devout Catholics have been praying every night at the St. Louis statue at 6:30 PM for over two weeks now.

On Sunday night the radical left called on supporters to come out and harass Christians at their daily prayer rally.

Earlier today the St. Louis Police blocked off the streets surrounding the area.

And police set up concrete barricade around the statue.

Latest Symbol Of Patriarchy? ARCHITECTURE! With Its Phallic Buildings That Thrust Upward

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 22:41

Dallas city skyline, Dallas, Texas, the Dallas part of the Dallas/FortWorth Metroplex

Can you imagine being a faux “oppressed” leftist in today’s world, desperately trying to find something, anything, to be oppressed by? It’s almost as if they are drawing  random cards out of a hat with topics to complain about. Today’s outrage is architecture! Yes, tall phallic buildings that THRUST upward into the sky, which are now symbols of sexism, “toxic masculinity,” and chauvinistic male oppression! They even equate skyscrapers to literally rape.

Or at least that’s according to Leslie Kern, who wrote an article titled “‘Upward-thrusting buildings ejaculating into the sky’ – do cities have to be so sexist?”  for the Guardian:

Toxic masculinity is built into the fabric of our urban spaces, writes Leslie Kern, author of new book Feminist City. And the results aren’t just divisive – they can be lethal.

Glass ceilings and phallic towers. Mean streets and dark alleys. Road names and statues of men. From the physical to the metaphorical, the city is filled with reminders of masculine power. And yet we rarely talk of the urban landscape as an active participant in gender inequality. A building, no matter how phallic, isn’t actually misogynist, is it? Surely a skyscraper isn’t responsible for sexual harassment, the wage gap, or even the glass ceiling, whether it has a literal one up top or not?

That said, our built environments can still reflect patterns of gender-based discrimination. To imagine the city and its structures as neutral places where complicated human social relations are staged is to ignore the simple fact that people built these places. As the feminist geographer Jane Darke has said: “Our cities are patriarchy written in stone, brick, glass and concrete.” In other words, cities reflect the norms of the societies that build them. And sexism is a deep-rooted norm.

As far back as 1977, an American poet and professor of architecture named Dolores Hayden wrote an article with the explosive headline “Skyscraper seduction, skyscraper rape”. Hayden tore into the male power fantasies embodied in this celebrated urban form. The office tower, she wrote, is one more addition “to the procession of phallic monuments in history – including poles, obelisks, spires, columns and watchtowers”, where architects un-ironically use the language of “base, shaft and tip” while drawing upward-thrusting buildings ejaculating light into the night sky.

If the disorder of cities was a threat to certain women, and the disorder of certain women a threat to cities, the suburbs could provide a solution. Early ads for the London tube depicted such areas as Golders Green as refuges where women would be safe and conveniently preoccupied with homemaking and child-rearing, while fathers could easily access the city via expanded underground routes.

In the mass suburbanisation of North America in the 1950s, this “fix” for gender norms that had become unstable during the war was quite explicit. “Developers,” says Hayden, “argued that a particular kind of house would help the veteran change from an aggressive air ace to a commuting salesman who mowed the lawn. That house would also help a woman change from Rosie the Riveter to a stay-at-home mom.”

She really starts going off the rails later in her article:

The consequences have proved deadly as Covid-19 rampages through our cities. Take the crisis in long-term care homes. Care for elderly and disabled people has been largely privatised in many countries, leaving homes dependent on a low-wage labour force, who must cobble together a living by working at multiple facilities, most likely taking crowded public buses and trains between them. This factor rapidly spread Covid-19, exposing the most vulnerable members of society to a frequently fatal illness. Because cities have failed to prioritise care as a public good, while perpetuating the notion that it is women’s work, employees have risked their lives for pennies, and the elderly have died because staff don’t earn a living wage.

Another deadly consequence is the global rise in domestic violence. If violence against women is ever given any attention in our cities, it is generally along the lines of women facing “stranger danger” in public: having to limit our movements, adjust our clothing, and travel in packs, avoiding dark alleys. Fear-mongering keeps women “in our place” and limits our access to the public realm. It also reinforces the idea that women should seek safety and protection in the nuclear family home – when nothing could be further from the truth.

The vast majority of violence, including fatal violence, against women and girls worldwide is perpetrated in the home, and lockdowns have exacerbated its every cause. These include stress, financial pressure, isolation, and a lack of interventions from family, friends and colleagues. Women are frightened to access shelter services and have little safe space or time to reach out for help. Not only is it almost impossible to move during the pandemic, loss of employment for many also means they can’t afford to leave anyway.

Yes, yes, in the minds of today’s modern deranged leftists, skyscrapers built decades ago by white males are responsible for rape, domestic violence, the coronavirus, and other crimes against humanity.

She continues:

City planners, architects and politicians can make a difference, if the will is there. In the Aspern district of Vienna, all of the streets and public spaces are named after women. In Tokyo, trains have carriages set aside at particular times for women, disabled people, children and carers. In Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, female street vendors have seen their safety and economic prospects improve with the building of secure, permanent mini-markets that include space for breastfeeding. In Stockholm, snowploughing schedules prioritise residential streets, school zones, public transport and bike lanes. These interventions say to women: “Your contribution matters. Your safety matters. Your mobility matters.”

The current situation offers an unprecedented opportunity for even bigger changes. One possibility comes via the anti-racism protests sweeping the globe: defund the police. Transfer that money to affordable housing, childcare and public transport, all of which would dramatically improve women’s lives in ways that increased policing never has. A second move: all those people suddenly deemed “essential workers” should be paid as if our lives depend on them, because they do. Third: reinvest in the public realm by creating accessible, barrier-free spaces and transport systems that would allow everyone full access to the benefits of city living.

Yes, that’s right, if we simply get rid of, or at least “re think” today’s architecture and city planning, all of the world’s problems would be solved.

But what would Art Vandelay have to say?

Democrats Defend Fauci After White House Puts Out List of His (Deadly) Coronavirus Mistakes

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 22:25

The White House put out a statement to the Washington Post listing several mistakes by Dr. Anthony Fauci about the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus pandemic. While the White House did not characterize Fauci’s mistakes as “deadly”, Fauci’s mistakes clearly cost American lives as the public and the government heeded his advice early on that downplayed the seriousness of the virus that has since killed nearly 140,000 Americans this year. Democrats rushed to defend Fauci.

File screen image.

The Post article is about the deteriorating relationship between the career bureaucrat Fauci (who cannot be fired by the President) and the Trump administration. The article states Fauci has not spoken with President Trump since the first week of June and no longer briefs him. The Post also reported the administration is limiting Fauci’s TV interviews.

Washington Post excerpt:

For months, Anthony S. Fauci has played a lead role in America’s coronavirus pandemic, as a diminutive, Brooklyn-accented narrator who has assessed the risk and issued increasingly blunt warnings as the nation’s response has gone badly awry.

But as the Trump administration has strayed from the advice of many of its scientists and public health experts, the White House has moved to sideline Fauci, scuttled some of his planned TV appearances and largely kept him out of the Oval Office for more than a month even as coronavirus infections surge in large swaths of the country.

In recent days, the 79-year-old scientist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has found himself directly in the president’s crosshairs. During a Fox News interview Thursday with Sean Hannity, Trump said Fauci “is a nice man, but he’s made a lot of mistakes.” And when Greta Van Susteren asked him last week about Fauci’s assessment that the country was not in a good place, Trump said flatly: “I disagree with him.”

Fauci no longer briefs Trump and is “never in the Oval [Office] anymore,” said a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. Fauci last spoke to the president during the first week of June, according to a person with knowledge of Trump’s calendar.

…A White House official released a statement saying that “several White House officials are concerned about the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things” and included a lengthy list of the scientist’s comments from early in the outbreak. Those included his early doubt that people with no symptoms could play a significant role in spreading the virus — a notion based on earlier outbreaks that the novel coronavirus would turn on its head. They also point to public reassurances Fauci made in late February, around the time of the first U.S. case of community transmission, that “at this moment, there is no need to change anything that you’re doing on a day-by-day basis.”

The Post did not publish the White House list of Fauci’s mistakes, but included a defense of Fauci:

Fauci’s supporters acknowledge those early mistakes, attributing them to the challenges posed by a new, largely unknown pathogen. They agree he downplayed the possibility of the virus spreading from person to person in January and early February even as it quietly seeded itself in communities on the East and West coasts. And, like several other public health officials, he initially said the public shouldn’t wear masks, but now strongly recommends it, especially when individuals can’t maintain distances of at least six feet from other people.

Fauci has said he was worried early in the outbreak about a shortage of masks and wanted to reserve them for health care workers. And he has said from the start that scientists’ knowledge of a brand new virus would evolve and recommendations could change based on new information.

NBC News reported on the White House list with a headline and sub-headline that defended Fauci. NBC News was given the list by the White House but like the Post did not publish the list.

White House seeks to discredit Fauci amid coronavirus surge–Many of the past statements the White House is criticizing Fauci for are ones that were based on the best available data at the time and were widely echoed by Trump and other officials.

The White House is seeking to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, as President Donald Trump works to marginalize him and his dire warnings about the shortcomings in the U.S. coronavirus response.

In a remarkable broadside by the Trump administration against one of its own, a White House official told NBC News on Sunday that “several White House officials are concerned about the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things.” To bolster the case, the official provided NBC News with a list of nearly a dozen past comments by Fauci earlier in the pandemic that the official said had ultimately proven erroneous.

Among them: Fauci’s comments in January that coronavirus was “not a major threat” and “not driven by asymptomatic carriers” and Fauci’s comment in March that “people should not be walking around with masks.”

…The list of past Fauci comments compiled by the White House, first reported by The Washington Post, includes Fauci saying in January— weeks before the first reported COVID-19 death in the U.S.— that the virus was “not a major threat for the people in the U.S.” A month later, it was Trump himself who told Americans that the virus would simply “disappear” like a “miracle.”

…Another member of the coronavirus task force, Admiral Brett Giroir, added to the Fauci pile-on today when he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Fauci has not always been correct.

“I respect Dr. Fauci a lot, but Dr. Fauci is not 100 percent right and he also doesn’t necessarily, he admits that, have the whole national interest in mind. He looks at it from a very narrow public health point of view,” Giroir said.

Democrats rushed to defend Fauci.

This list of Fauci mistakes (including his approving of sex hookups with online strangers during the pandemic) compiled by TGP’s Jim Hoft and published in May is stunning to look back on as the nation nears 140,00 dead from the virus.

The Post article notes the 79-year-old Fauci has no plans to quit because he wants to help find a vaccine not just for the coronavirus but for AIDS. Fauci has been working without success for an AIDS vaccine since the 1980s when he assumed his current position as Director the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH in 1984.

“Friends and allies say Fauci doesn’t quit because he loves his job and also feels a great sense of responsibility about helping to develop coronavirus vaccines and treatments — the biggest challenge of his career and the only way the country can truly begin to move past the pandemic. He has long said he does not want to retire before there is an AIDS vaccine.”

Mueller’s Pitbull Andrew Weissmann Wants Roger Stone Hauled Before Far Left Grand Jury in New York

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 21:29

Mueller’s pitbull Andrew Weissmann wants Roger Stone hauled before a grand jury in New York and tortured some more.

The corrupt MSNBC legal expert is not through torturing Roger Stone for being Donald Trump’s friend and associate.

Weissmann wrote this on Friday after President Trump commuted Roger Stone’s years in prison for lying to a congressional committee, something Democrats do with regularity.

Stone was a victim of the Mueller witch hunt, an investigation with no merit that Trump-hating prosecutors knew was fraudulent before they opened the investigation.

Law and Crime reported:

Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s onetime lead lieutenant Andrew Weissmann wants to see former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone hauled before a grand jury in New York State.

“Time to put Roger Stone in the grand jury to find out what he knows about Trump but would not tell,” the onetime prosecutor and current New York University law professor wrote on Friday evening. “Commutation can’t stop that.”

Several political, media and legal figures erupted after President Donald Trump announced that he was commuting the sentence of his longtime friend under the often controversial presidential prerogative afforded by America’s founding charter.

The U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2 reads, in relevant part:

[H]e shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

“Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency,” the White House said in statement, which read like a Trump tweet, when announcing the commutation. “There was never any collusion between the Trump Campaign, or the Trump Administration, with Russia. Such collusion was never anything other than a fantasy of partisans unable to accept the result of the 2016 election.”

Lindsey Graham to Call in Mueller to Testify About Russia Investigation After Special Counsel Blasts Roger Stone in WaPo Op-Ed

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday announced he will be calling Robert Mueller to testify after the former special counsel blasted Roger Stone in a Washington Post op-ed.

“Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have previously requested Mr. Mueller appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about his investigation. That request will be granted.” he added.

Robert Mueller lashed out at Roger Stone after President Trump commuted the political operative’s sentence.

President Trump on Friday evening commuted Roger Stone’s sentence just days before the republican political operative was set to report to prison.

67-year-old Roger Stone was hunted down by Mueller’s crooked team of Democrat lawyers and charged with process crimes.

Mueller blasted Roger Stone in a WaPo op-ed on Saturday titled, “Roger Stone Remains a Convicted Felon, and Rightly So.”

Mueller’s op-ed was full of Russian collusion lies.

For example, Mueller peddled the lie that “WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russian military intelligence officers.”

By late 2016, the FBI had evidence that the Russians had signaled to a Trump campaign adviser that they could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to the Democratic candidate. And the FBI knew that the Russians had done just that: Beginning in July 2016, WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russian military intelligence officers from the Clinton campaign. Other online personas using false names — fronts for Russian military intelligence — also released Clinton campaign emails. – Mueller wrote.

To this day, there is zero evidence to support Mueller’s claims of Russian hackers — the FBI never did forensic analysis of the DNC servers and just took CrowdStrike’s word that the servers were hacked by the Russians.

Anyone who watched Mueller’s last testimony knows he didn’t write that WaPo op-ed (Weissmann probably wrote it).

ESPN Suspends NBA Reporter Adrian Wojnarowski For Saying “F*ck You” to GOP Senator Josh Hawley

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 19:05

ESPN suspended NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski for sending a profane email to GOP Senator Josh Hawley.

According to reports, Wojnarowski was suspended without pay, however it is unclear how long the suspension is for.

ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski wasn’t too happy that Senator Josh Halwey (R-MO) blasted the NBA for kowtowing to Beijing and refusing to support US military and law enforcement.

Hawley sent a letter to NBA commissioner Adam Silver blasting the league’s decision to limit messages players can wear on their jerseys to a few BLM/social justice slogans while censoring support for police or criticism of the CCP.

NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski got triggered and said “F*ck you” to Hawley in an email.

Nan Hayworth pointed out that several leading Democrats are wearing this vile Nazi pin out in public!

Hey, @USATODAY, now do the symbolism of the imagery in the pin worn by these four women, all proud Democrats: https://t.co/Kib2Kh902N pic.twitter.com/yRHZaUMllr

For the record…
The eagle on a globe pins have been around for ages and were designed by DC jeweler Ann Hand, but were never linked to the Nazis.
It’s only when Trump has an eagle and globe that the fake news media links it to the Nazis!

“Get the F**k Out of Here, N***er!” – De Blasio’s New York City: Crowd Cheers as Criminal Puts Cop in Choke Hold (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 18:17

There were 15 shootings in a 15 hour period this weekend in New York City.

Murder and shootings are soaring this year compared to last year.

And Bill De Blasio and his city officials just voted to cut the police budget by one billion dollars or around the same amount of cash that Bill De Blasio’s wife lost in one of her special projects.

This is the same woman who said a police-free New York City would be like a utopia.

And now the attacks on police in New York City are escalating.

One officer was put in a choke hold this weekend while locals stood around and cheered!

There is a total break down of law and order under communist De Blasio.

DeBlasio is a FAILURE in every sense of the word. The only Mayor in America where the people have a petition to have him removed. An honorable profession in the NYPD has been destroyed by one man who simply hates cops. https://t.co/MJg8eih6RA

Dr. Lawrence Sellin: Evidence Indicates the China Coronavirus “Most Likely a Product of Laboratory Manipulation”

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 18:08

Dr. Lawrence Sellin provides a video and summary of reasons why it is important to know the origins of the China coronavirus crisis and information on the dangers of these viruses.

A friend of the Gateway Pundit, Dr. Lawrence Sellin, provides this important information on the significance of understanding the China coronavirus pandemic (note there is no volume only slides):

Why it is important to know the origin of COVID-19

  1. Viral epidemics due to animal to human infection are relatively rare events.
  2. China has isolated and stored nearly 1,000 bat coronavirus strains.
  3. Leaks out of Chinese laboratories occurred in two separate incidents in April 2004 involving researchers infected with the deadly coronavirus SARS-CoV, responsible for the 2002-2003 pandemic.
  4. China plans to build dozens of new laboratories for highly dangerous viruses.

https://asiatimes.com/2020/07/china-goes-on-biosafety-lab-building-spree/

Why are COVID-19’s spikes important?

  1. The structure and the biological properties of the coronavirus spike determine whether or not it can be transmitted between animals and humans and the extent and degree of human infection and pathogenicity.
  2. Since the first Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) pandemic in 2002-2003, there have been literally hundreds of scientific publications describing the artificial manipulation of the coronavirus spike structure, many producing a “gain of function,” that is, increasing the coronaviruses’ infectivity and pathogenicity.

How coronaviruses “jump” from animals to humans

  1. Coronaviruses mutate as they replicate and circulate within an animal population, which tends to “optimize” the coronavirus infection for that animal.
  2. A coronavirus can “jump” to humans when, through the mutation process, it acquires structural components capable of infecting humans. Then, as the virus mutates within and among humans, it becomes adapted for human infection creating the potential for a pandemic.
  3. The mutation process producing a “jump” between species or from animals to humans can take years or decades, but can be greatly accelerated by artificial manipulation of the coronavirus structure.

Why COVID-19’s structural modifications are important

  1. Both changes in COVID-19’s structure described represent a “gain of function,” increasing its infectivity and pathogenicity far beyond the capabilities of the coronavirus ancestors from which it might have evolved.
  2. In a study published on July 9, 2020, COVID-19 was found to be 1,000 times more effective in binding to human cells than the bat coronavirus identified as COVID-19’s closest relative.
  3. It is unlikely that those modifications arose naturally because there is no clear evolutionary pathway yet identified that could account for such a quantum increase in human infectivity.

Summary

  1. After over six months of intensive investigation, no one has been able to identify the naturally-occurring source of COVID-19.
  2. In contrast, applying the principle of Occam’s razor, the simplest explanation for the unique structure and properties of COVID-19 is that it is the product of laboratory manipulation.
  3. The laboratory techniques for making the artificial modifications in COVID-19 are well-established and known to Chinese scientists.

Oops! Fake News USA Today Says Trump Campaign T-Shirts Feature ‘Nazi Eagle’ …But Speaker Pelosi Uses Same ‘Nazi Eagle’ on Her Website

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 16:05

Fake News will be Fake News…

USA Today wrote a BS article on how President Trump is selling Nazi T-Shirts at his campaign store.
The far left “fact checkers” at USA Today ruled the America First Eagle on the Trump T-Shirt is in fact a Nazi Symbol.

But then their fake news fell apart.

Matt Whitlock pointed out the Speaker Nancy Pelosi uses the same image on her website.

“They’re There to Undermine Rule of Law” – Rudy Giuliani Unloads on Soros-Funded Circuit Attorneys Wreaking Havoc Across the Country (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/12/2020 - 15:09

Former New York City Mayor and Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this morning.

During their conversation Rudy weighed in on the Soros-funded district attorneys who are destroying law and order in American cities.

Rudy Giuliani: Look at the DAs we have now. We have Soros-elected anarchist DAs. They’re not there to prosecute the law. They’re there to undermine the law. He put them there. Why would Soros pay for DAs other than to undermine our government. He got people elected who released criminals, don’t prosecute cases. In Philadelphia they won’t even bring a case to the DA, he’s so anti-police pro-criminal. For five years Soros has been funding these and nobody paid attention but he had a reason. It’s to undermine our government…

Fred Barnes / Washington Examiner:
If Trump wants to win, he has to be more disciplined  —  President Trump is a gift that keeps on giving, but not always in a way that improves his prospects for winning a second term.  On the contrary, he often insists on helping his political opponents and the press cling to the anti-Trump narrative they cherish.
