The Missouri couple who brandished weapons in the process of trying to protect their home from a Black Lives Matter mob are now facing felony charges.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis were indicted by a Grand Jury today and charged with exhibiting their guns at the mob of protesters and tampering with evidence. The charges stem from a June event where a crowd of approximately 300 BLM “activists” stormed onto the property of their private neighborhood.
According to KMOV, The couple’s attorney, Joel Schwartz, said the grand jury isn’t aware of all the facts surrounding the case.
“Once all the facts are out, it will be clear the McCloskeys committed no crime whatsoever,” Schwartz said. “Frankly because the grand jury is not an adversarial process and defense counsel are not allowed in there and I have no idea what was stated to the grand jury and what law was given to the grand jury.”
Anyone who follows the news has likely seen the violent destruction these so-called peaceful protesters have caused across the country. In fact, it has been estimated that the BLM rioters have cost over $2 billion in property damage claims. Any sane person would want to do anything they can do defend themselves and their home when hundreds of rowdy rioters crash through the gates of their neighborhoods.
There have been numerous instances of innocent Americans getting arrested for protecting themselves from these mobs. If Joe Biden and the Democrats gain power, everyday citizens will likely suffer under this type of rule on a national scale.
Affluent Chicagoans Fleeing Due to Leadership Inability to Calm BLM Violence
Many people, including President Trump himself, noted during their Republican National Convention speeches that Democratic-run cities are experiencing violence and looting, as the leaders whose policies are to blame are safely hidden in privileged areas. However, areas like Chicago have become so bad, affluent neighborhoods are no longer safe and citizens are getting out of dodge.
“Incidents of widespread looting and soaring homicide figures in Chicago have made national news during an already tumultuous year,” writes the Chicago Tribune. “As a result, some say residents in affluent neighborhoods downtown, and on the North Side, no longer feel safe in the city’s epicenter and are looking to move away.”
Liberal leadership has been unsuccessful at subduing violence from the Black Lives Matter’s highjacked movement. With no end of destruction in sight and spontaneous eruptions of violence, while residents say “they understand why protesters and rioters have poured onto the streets of downtown, and some acknowledge that crime is worse in other parts of Chicago” they still want out reports the Chicago Tribune.
Some people “agree with protesters that something systemic needs to be changed” but they “don’t want to wait it out here in the city, fearful of stepping outside at night and hoping for things to maybe get better.” A 30-year-old nurse who lives in the River North area said, “not to make it all about us; the whole world is suffering…but I do think that I’ve never had to think about my own safety in this way before.”
Hopefully, this will be a lesson to Chicagoans and similar cities, that they need to vote out their Democratic leadership who refuse to stand up to the violent protesters and also refuse to accept help and assistance offered directly from President Trump. 60-year-old Neil Spun has lived in Chicago for over half his life and is deeply conflicted about moving. A state worker, Spun said “there have been rights before, and looting. It just seems to me now that the city isn’t doing anything about it. I don’t see this getting any better, and so I’d like to leave.” Residents would be far better off voting in new leadership instead of succumbing to liberal policies that change their communities beyond recognition.
CBS WH Correspondent Says he Felt Safer Reporting in North Korea than at White House
Unsurprisingly, Tracy is getting hammered on Twitter for his comments
After White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tested positive for coronavirus today, CBS correspondent Ben Tracy made a rather dramatic proclamation: He felt safer while reporting in the totalitarian dictatorship of North Korea than he does currently reporting at the White House.
After posting multiple hysterical tweets about McEnany’s diagnosis and how she didn’t wear a mask while briefing reporters yesterday, Tracy wrote, “I felt safer reporting in North Korea than I currently do reporting at The White House. This is just crazy.”

McEnany announced earlier today that she had been diagnosed with coronavirus after testing negative every day since Thursday for the disease. She currently has no symptoms.
Fortunately for Tracy, McEnany also noted in her statement that no members of the press, reporters or producers were listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit.
“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time,” she said. “With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), North Korea is listed as the second most censored country. The list is based on research into the country’s tactics, “tactics ranging from imprisonment and repressive laws to surveillance of journalists and restrictions on internet and social media access.”
In September 2017, two South Korean journalists and their publishers were sentenced to death in absentia in North Korea for “insulting the dignity of the country.”
“North Korea continues to be one of the most repressive countries in the world for journalists,” writes the CPJ.
Unsurprisingly, Tracy is getting hammered on Twitter for his comments. View some of the hilarious responses HERE.
