Congressman Calls for DOJ to Label Antifa a Domestic Terror Organization


Congressman Jim Banks calls on DOJ to label Antifa a domestic terror organization

 A number of people were violently attacked by Antifa thugs during Saturday’s rally, including gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo who was hospitalized with suspected brain bleed following the assault.

 Following the attacks, Senator Ted Cruz called on law enforcement to find and prosecute the “violent felons” behind the attack. Cruz also demanded an investigation into Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for failing to do anything to prevent the violence.

 A White House petition was also setup, demanding that the Trump administration label Antifa as domestic terrorists.

 This prompted Congressman Jim Banks to call on President Trump, the DOJ and the FBI to investigate Antifa and declare them a domestic terrorist organization

“In light of events this weekend in Portland, Oregon, I call on @POTUS, @TheJusticeDept, & @FBI to investigate #Antifa & declare them a domestic terrorist organization. Their avowal of violence & routine intimidation, harassment, & assault of Americans has no place in our country,” the Indiana Congressman tweeted.

Summit.news reports: This is not the first time that Antifa, which is vehemently defended by many media personalities on the left, has been bracketed in the context of domestic terror.

 Back in July 2017, the Department of Homeland Security in New Jersey officially listedAntifa as a domestic terrorist organization after a rash of violent attacks by the group targeting supporters of Donald Trump.

“In the past year, Antifa groups have become active across the United States, employing a variety of methods to disrupt demonstrations,” stated the advisory, before going on to list a number of violent disruptions, including Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event at the University of California Berkeley on February 1st, which was cancelled after members of Antifa violently attacked free speech advocates.

 According to a January 2017 Politico report, federal authorities had been warning state and local authorities since early 2016 that Antifa was engaging in “domestic terrorist violence”.

Still waiting.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
