    “New York Attorney General Sends Threatening Letter to Church Suggesting Their ‘ReAwaken America Tour’ Is ‘Extremist’ and ‘Racially Motivated’”

    https://thestarnewsnetwork.com/2022/08/19/new-york-attorney-general-sends-threatening-letter-to-church-suggesting-their-reawaken-america-tour-is-extremist-and-racially-motivated/

    “A letter sent by New York Attorney General Letitia James to Cornerstone Church in Batavia, New York, threatened the church in advance of its hosting a ReAwaken America Tour event this past weekend, with investigation and prosecution of “acts of violence, intimidation, threats, or harassment” toward others based on “a belief or perception” of characteristics including “race,” “national origin,” “gender,” and “sexual orientation.”

    “As New York’s top law enforcement officer, I have significant concerns that the ReAwaken America Tour’s upcoming event at the Cornerstone Church in Batavia, New York on August 12 and 13 could spur extremist or racially motivated violence,” James said in the letter sent, in care of the church, to Clay Clark, organizer of the tour, and General Michael Flynn, who travels with it.

    These concerns center around the event’s proposed dates, which coincide with the five-year anniversary of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and past extremist statements made by yourselves and the other featured speakers on the tour.

    I am especially concerned about featured speakers’ regular allusions to white nationalist ideals connected to the “Great Replacement Theory,” a conspiracy theory that warns of white genocide and efforts to replace native born immigrants. The theory is frequently linked to violent actions, including the racially motivated mass shooting that killed 10 people at a Tops Friendly Markets store in Buffalo.

    James proceeded to warn the church and tour organizers with possible investigation and prosecution:

    The Office of the Attorney General writes to remind you that New York law prohibits racially motivated violence, harassment, or interference with another person in the exercise of their civil rights. New York Civil Rights Law §79-n empowers the Office of the Attorney General to investigate acts of violence, intimidation, threats, or harassment directed at people based on a belief or perception regarding an individual’s race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious practice, age, disability, or sexual orientation. In addition to actual damages, any person who violates this statute can be held liable for $5,000 in penalties for each violation.

    Additionally, New York Civil Rights Law §40-c prohibits discriminating against another person in the exercise of their civil rights – including the right to peacefully protest – based on similar protected characteristics. Finally, New York Executive Law §63(12) empowers the Office of the Attorney General to take action against any business engaged in significant fraud or illegality – including the violation of New York’s civil rights laws.

    James concluded her letter with additional threats:

    The Office of the Attorney General has a duty to protect New Yorkers from extremist and racially motivated violence. We stand ready to investigate any violation of the laws above and, if necessary, to enforce them to the fullest extent available. You are therefore instructed to take all necessary steps to ensure that the event complies fully with the requirements of New York’s civil rights laws and all other applicable state and federal statutes.

    Pastor Paul Doyle of Cornerstone Church said the letter from James “felt like it was trying to bully us,” reported WGRZ News in advance of the event, which featured among its speakers Eric Trump, son of former President Donald Trump.

    “She’s basically insinuating that we’re involved in racist activity,” Doyle said, adding he thought the letter bordered on defamation.

    The ReAwaken America Tour emphasizes faith, freedom, and family values.

    Ahead of the event, Chief Deputy of Road Patrol Brian Frieday of the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office said the sheriff’s office did not expect violence at the event.

    “We do not anticipate any violence from the event attendees, based on talks with event organizers and also from reaching out to police agencies from previous locations,” Frieday said, according to the Daily News.

    “We are a Christian church,” Doyle asserted. “My youth pastor is an African American, and we have a number of African Americans in our church. They are insulted by this.”

    “Tucker Carlson Sounds the Alarm About Republicans Blowing the Midterms

    Republicans need to run “on illegal immigration and crime…. These two issues threaten the existence of our society. So, maybe you should run on them….””

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/08/tucker-carlson-sounds-the-alarm-about-republicans-blowing-the-midterms/

    “Here are some excerpts from his opening monologue last night via FOX News:

    For all the bad things going on, there are, on the other side, Joe Biden’s approval ratings, which are a nonstop source of joy for us. And if you’ve seen them recently, you know in your heart exactly how the November elections are going to turn out. Biden’s obviously been a disaster for the country, but not only has he made the U.S. poorer, weaker and much more ridiculous, people know that he has, and they tell pollsters about it all the time. Biden is the single least popular president in modern American history…

    In fact, all the indications we have right now suggest that despite Joe Biden’s well-earned unpopularity, the Democratic Party still, again, as of tonight, has a strong chance of holding Congress in November.

    The prediction markets, which many believe are more accurate than the polls, overwhelmingly point to the Democrats keeping at least one chamber and maybe strangest of all, as of this week, Democrats are leading Republicans nationally in the so-called generic ballot by about four points. So, if you ask people, “Which party do you like more?” they say Democrats. And maybe that’s why Democrats are raising a lot more money, too and not just money from their patrons in big tech, but from small-dollar donors. That’s bad.

    In June, Democrats raised $64 million online from 4 million people. That same month, this June, Republicans raised only $26 million online from just over a million donors. From the first quarter to the second quarter of this year, donations to the Republican Party dropped by more than 12%. By contrast, donations to the Democratic Party are up more than 20%. That is not good at all, not simply because you need money to run a political campaign, but because money is, to some extent, a measure of commitment and intensity and you see the same dynamic playing out in individual races across the country.

    Republicans are refusing to run on the most important issues, Tucker argued:

    So, let’s say again, just for the sake of argument that you ran a campaign on illegal immigration and crime. Now, these are two issues that didn’t just arise out of nowhere. They’re the product of policies the Democratic Party put in. They were intentional outcomes. We have millions of people coming in illegally and we have a lot more murders than we had two years ago. These two issues, immigration and crime, don’t simply annoy voters, though they very much do. These two issues threaten the existence of our society. So, maybe you should run on them….

    So, if every Republican candidate just repeated, repeat after me, “law enforcement, law and order is not racist. Law and order is a prerequisite for civilization, and if it goes away, so does the country,” you would win the votes not simply of your own voters, but of a lot of other voters and people who have never voted before and any normal Democrat would agree with that because it’s inherently true, but is the opposite of what we have.

    One of the problems, according to Tucker, is Mitch McConnell:

    What is going on here, and why is no one mentioning it? Well, a couple of things are going on, but first, let’s hear from Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell is the head Republican in the Senate. He’s not there because everyone likes him. McConnell has no close friends. He’s loved by no one, but he’s considered very smart. He’s a master tactician as the dummies who cover politics for Politico and The Washington Post are always telling us. In Washington, people are very much afraid of Mitch McConnell. Cross him and he will hurt you and they listen carefully to his political analysis because that’s what he’s spent his life doing. That’s the only thing he spent his life doing. So, here’s what Mitch McConnell says the problem is. Watch.

    MITCH MCCONNELL: There’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate. Senate races are just different. They’re statewide. Candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”

    “‘Civil War Is Here’: MSNBC Host Says There’s ‘No Dealing’ With Conservatives”

    https://dailycaller.com/2022/08/19/cross-msnbc-civil-war/

    “MSNBC host Tiffany Cross claimed that “civil war” was imminent in the United States Thursday evening.

    “You have millions of people turning into a propaganda network every night,” Cross said. “As if that were not bad enough, that’s an extremist network itself, you have these fringe pop-up outlets from OANN to Newsmax. Then you have the social media component. The train has left the station. There is no dealing with the rhetoric. At this point, we need serious conversations around preparing for actual violence. People keep saying a Civil War is coming. I would say the Civil War is here.”

    “The poll comes as tensions between red-state governors and the Biden administration continue to escalate over the flood of illegal immigrants entering the United States. The U.S. Border Patrol is arresting record numbers of migrants coming across the southern border. So far this fiscal year, which ends in October, officials have made about 1.82 million arrests — a record.

    The new record tops the previous one set during the 2021 fiscal year at about 1.66 million arrests.”

    “Biden heads back to Delaware beach house, where he’s building $500K taxpayer-funded security fence

    DHS awarded Delaware company $490,000 to build fence at Biden’s home”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-heads-back-delaware-beach-house-building-500k-taxpayer-funded-security-fence

    “After spending much of his summer vacation on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, President Biden is heading back to his multimillion-dollar beach house in his home state of Delaware, where he’s building a taxpayer-funded security fence at a cost that’s ballooned to nearly $500,000.

    Biden is expected to arrive at his $2.7 million summer house in the North Shores community of Rehoboth Beach on Saturday after spending the last couple nights in Wilmington, Delaware, according to data released by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). On Wednesday, Biden was briefly at the White House signing of the $739 billion Inflation Reduction Act into law.

    In September 2021, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) awarded $456,548 to a Sussex County company to construct a security fence around the president’s home.

    The DHS contract with Turnstone Holdings LLC for the “purchase and installation of security fencing” at the residence has since increased to $490,324 this summer, according to the website USAspending.gov, an online database of federal government spending.”
