Protesters blocked Fifth Avenue holding signs that read “reclaim SCOTUS” and “affirm LGBTQ rights.”Protests are one thing but rent-a-mobs and inciting riots are another especially when they are being organized and funded by murky organizations.
Seven protesters were arrested Monday night in front of Trump Tower following President Donald Trump’s nomination of D.C. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, an NYPD spokesman said.
Four men and three women were arrested shortly after 9 p.m. when they blocked the road in front of the Fifth Avenue skyscraper, an NYPD spokesman said. The people arrested were charged with disorderly conduct, the spokesman said.
Among the people arrested was City Councilman Jumaane Williams, who is currently running to be the next Lieutenant Governor of New York State, according to reporters at the scene. The councilman’s communication director tweeted photos of Williams being taken into custody wearing a “resist” t-shirt and a “stay woke” pin.
[V]oters reject socialism in no uncertain terms.Of course, it is depressing to think that 13% of voters are dumb enough to want socialism, and being undecided between free markets and socialism is like being undecided between Bar Refaeli and Nancy Pelosi. But I suppose you could find 13% of poll respondents who will say the Sun rises in the West.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many (13%) are undecided.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is tapping additional Justice Department resources for help with new legal battles as his year-old investigation of Russian interference with the 2016 election continues to expand.On May 31st, the Office of Special Counsel released a statement of expenditures revealing over $4.5 million has been flushed down the toilet in just a 6 month period hunting Russian ghosts.
As Mueller pursues his probe, he’s making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents — a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.
Mueller and his team of 17 federal prosecutors are coping with a higher-than-expected volume of court challenges that has added complexity in recent months, but there’s no political appetite at this time to increase the size of his staff, the officials said.
Investigators in New York; Alexandria, Virginia; Pittsburgh and elsewhere have been tapped to supplement the work of Mueller’s team, the officials said. Mueller has already handed off one major investigation — into Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen — to the Southern District of New York.
