They might be two of the most well-respected actors in Hollywood, but Joaquin Phoenix and Martin Sheen should not remind any person of Rhodes Scholars. Both goofballs were arrested on Friday protesting “climate change.” Here’s the deal, via Q13Fox:

Recent Golden Globe winner Joaquin Phoenix and Martin Sheen were the latest celebrities to be arrested as part of Jane Fonda’s weekly climate protests.

Fire Drill Fridays, the name of Fonda’s weekly initiative, confirmed to CNN that the two actors were arrested this week. The US Capitol Police verified that 147 people were arrested in Friday’s protest, but did not provide a list of names. They were all charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, a spokesperson for the department told CNN.

Republicans Chastise President Without Mentioning His Name, After He Won’t Commit To Peaceful Transfer Of Power

Published

on

A handful of individuals in the GOP were not too happy with President Trump for refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should Joe Biden win the November election. Leading the pack were Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Steve Stivers of Ohio. All three of these individuals took to social media to rebuke Trump, though none of them actually mentioned him by name, probably in an attempt to continue putting on an air of solidarity. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Fundamental to democracy is the peaceful transition of power; without that, there is Belarus. Any suggestion that a president might not respect this Constitutional guarantee is both unthinkable and unacceptable,” said Romney, who has long been at odds with the president. https://twitter.com/MittRomney/status/1308932877229477890 “The peaceful transfer of power is enshrined in our Constitution and fundamental to the survival of our Republic. America’s leaders swear an oath to the Constitution. We will uphold that oath,” said Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in the House. At the White House, the president was asked by a reporter if he would “commit here today for a peaceful transferal of power after the November election” during Wednesday’s press briefing. The president didn’t answer affirmatively. “We’re going to have to see what happens. You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster,” the president said. “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” Immediately, leftists all over Twitter have pounced on his comments to try and twist them to make the president look as if he’s wanting to go full dictator here, and get rid of voting altogether so he can stay in power. Anyone with fully…

Suspect In Shooting Of Louisville Police Officers Arrested In Wake Of Violent Protests

Published

on

It was announced yesterday that there would be no formal charges brought against the Louisville police officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, and as you can probably guess, Black Lives Matter protesters immediately took to the streets and stuff got pretty violent real quick. In fact, two police officers were shot, though thankfully the injuries they sustained were not life threatening. A man has been arrested in connection with the shootings. Here’s more from Fox News: A suspect accused in shooting two Louisville police officers during protests Wednesday evening has also been identified. Larynzo Johnson, 26, has been charged with wanton endangerment and assault of a police officer. He will be arraigned Friday. Johnson “intentionally used a handgun to fire multiple bullets at officers” addressing the crowd, the complaint said. Two officers were struck by bullets causing serious physical injury. Police said witnesses spotted Johnson firing a handgun at officers and running from the scene. The complaint said he was also in possession of a handgun at the time of his arrest and law enforcement recovered video of the shooting showing the suspect fire at officers. Police stated that some businesses were looted early Thursday morning, because hey, nothing says “fighting inequality” like robbing stores owned by people who have absolutely nothing to do with your alleged grievances. It’s never okay to riot, loot, or burn other people’s property to the ground. That doesn’t make you a “freedom fighter” it makes you a criminal, a terrorist. This is what Black Lives Matter doesn’t seem to understand. Or they do understand, but simply don’t care. Let’s hope no further incidents of violence occur and police are actually allowed to do their jobs and quell the madness before someone gets killed.
