AG Barr: ‘Since When is it Okay to Burn Down a Federal Court?’
On Tuesday, Attorney General William Barr testified before the House Judiciary Committee, explaining the rationale behind sending federal law enforcement to defend federal buildings under attack by antifa rioters, such as the federal courthouse in Portland.
During the hearing, Democrats accused Barr of inciting the violence by sending federal officers to protect the buildings, and of using federal officers as a political prop for Trump’s reelection. Barr condemned Democrats for ignoring or excusing the violence.
“What makes me concerned for the country is, this is the first time in my memory that the leaders of one of our great two political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts,” the attorney general said. “Why can’t we just say violence against federal courts has to stop? Could we hear something like that?”
Earlier in the hearing, he had defended using federal officers to protect the federal courthouse in Portland.
He argued that the federal government has a duty to protect “federal property, and specifically U.S. courthouses, which are the heart of federal property in all 93 jurisdictions in the United States. And we have the obligation to protect federal courts.” Read more…
More Than a Thousand Gather on California Beach to Protest Church Closures
More than a thousand worshipers gathered on a beach in California on Sunday evening to protest the state’s latest lockdown order against churches and other types of establishments.
According to NBC 7 San Diego, Pastor Barry Sappington, who helped organize the gathering on Cardiff State Beach near San Diego, said of the participants, “They miss worshipping. Worship is a core part of a Christ follower’s life, and as you can see, people don’t want to go anywhere. They want to gather, they want to worship, and this is a perfect venue for them to do so.”
Sappington claimed to NBC 7 that a permit had been issued for the protest, though California State Parks Lifeguards claimed otherwise. They estimated the crowd to be more than 1,250 people.
Heather Molchanoff, a local resident who was in attendance, told NBC 7, “Its such a double standard, right? You have protesters who can go out, do gatherings like this, and nothing is spoken about; if anything, it’s praised. But then we’re not allowed to gather in church on Sunday.” Read more…
