Trump threatens to use military against protests, uses force to get photo op

WASHINGTON — Trump declared himself the “the president of law and order” and threatened to use the military to put down protests in cities across the country on Monday in the Rose Garden.

The Associated Press reported that as he made those comments, a series of military vehicles rolled out front on Pennsylvania Avenue and military police and law enforcement clashed with protesters at Lafayette Park. The protesters were cleared so he could do a photo op at St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street.

“We have the greatest country in the world,” Trump declared. “We’re going to keep it safe.”

‘As incoherent as It Is Dangerous’: Trump threatens to designate Antifa—which isn’t an actual group—as terrorist organization

WASHINGTON — Civil liberties advocates and progressive voices threw up immediate flags of alarm on Sunday afternoon after President Donald Trump threatened to officially designate “ANTIFA”—a moniker that stands for anti-fascist but is not, as informed people were forced to point out, an actual organization—as a “terrorist organization.”

In recent years, the term ANTIFA has become a broad stand-in phrase used to describe certain left-wing activists—including some anarchist and anti-fascist groups or networks. As protests and uprisings have occurred in cities nationwide over recent days in the wake of last week’s killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis, Trump and other officials have blamed so-called “Antifa instigators”—mostly without providing any solid evidence—with stoking violence or carrying out property destruction.

With the first item, Politico reported that Trump attacked WHO during a Rose Garden press briefing.

“We will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and directing those funds to worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs,” Trump said in a brief statement.

Out gay state legislator rips Penn. GOP over hiding positive COVID-19 tests

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims (D-Philadelphia) went off on state Republican leadership over hiding the fact that a GOP state legislature had tested positive for coronavirus and continued to come the chamber.

Sims, who is also the state’s first out gay legislator, evidently recorded the video that was posted on Facebook just minutes after being informed about exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. He was visibly angry in the video, dropping quite a few f-bombs.
