Riots in the USA


Please scroll down for video 23.3K 

The stunning election of Donald Trump is certainly one of the greatest upsets in modern global politics. The nation has been divided by a bitter and highly controversial election campaign, and his opponents have already made it clear that they are not going to go down without a fight. The United States has woken up this morning to a country fraught with emotion and anger, and protestors are now taking to the streets to violently express their frustration at the election result. RIOTS BREAK OUT FOLLOWING TRUMP VICTORY Reports are coming in across the country about the break out of small but serious rioting incidents. In Oakland, more than a hundred protestors gathered in the early hours of the morning and attempted to block the freeways. Even when the protestors was hit by a car, they refused to abandon their sit in. Instead, the violence escalated with some cars being set on fire and the windows of others were broken. Eventually, the emergency services had to close down the highway to deal with the incident. Further reports have also hit the newswires speaking of civil unrest. A Trump supporters’ victory party in San Francisco was spectacularly and chillingly interrupted by groups of protestors wearing masks. In Berkeley, California a mob apparently took the streets chanting ‘not my president’ in response to the election of Trump. Supporters of the unsuccessful Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were caught on camera marching through the streets of Portland in Oregon. The footage contains images of protestors shouting ‘f*** Donald Trump, president elect’ and it has been claimed that one protestor set fire to an American flag. Other protests are said to have broken out in San Diego and San Jose. The civil discontent at Donald Trump’s elevation to the role of president has not been confined to the United States. Later today, anti-racism protestors in London plan to stage a demonstration outside the United States Embassy in protest of the president-elect. Hillary Clinton supporters were also filmed marching through Portland in Oregon shouting ‘f*** Donald Trump’ and setting fire to the US flag.

BREAKING: Mass Shooting At Anti-Trump Protest in Seattle

Five people were shot in downtown Seattle Wednesday night.
Gunshots were reported shortly before p.m. at Third Avenue between Pike and Pine streets.
Two of the five people who were shot have life-threatening injuries, the Seattle Fire Department said around 7:15 p.m.
An anti-Trump rally, which started at Westlake Mall, turned into a march and was proceeding down nearby streets at the time of the shootings, according to witnesses.
Seattle Fire crews treating 5 patients with gunshot wounds. 2 of the 5 with life-threatening injuries. Medics transporting to HMC.

ALERT - This is an active shooting investigation on 3rd & Pine St. *AVOID THE AREA*UPDATE: A live-stream from KIRO7 shows a relatively spread-out crime scene.
Seattle Asst. Chief says that a lone suspect was in a crowd near or watching the anti-Trump protests, when an argument of some sort developed. One of the people in the argument stepped away, fired back into the crowd at the person or people with whom he was arguing.
At least some of the wounded are believed to be innocent bystanders waiting for a bus. Only one man is seriously injured.  The four other injuries are believed to be to the lower extremities.
Authorities were on the scene within 60 seconds, as police and EMS were staged just down the street due to the protests.

Anti-Trump Protesters Fill the Streets Nationwide

"Not my president" was the contentious theme of rallies the night after the startling election results.

In 15 different American cities Wednesday, enraged voters marched, chanted and blocked major highways in response to Donald Trump's surprising election victory. From Los Angeles to New York, Indianapolis to Miami, citizens' signs drew attention to Trump's countless offenses, which would have barred any normal politician from the highest office. Even red-state cities saw protests, including Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City, Missouri. 
Protesters took to the streets condemning the "whitelash" of the majority of caucasian Americans voting for a xenophobic, racist, sexist bully who began his campaign by calling Mexicans "rapists" and proclaiming, "The American dream is dead."
In Trump's home city of New York, protesters were particularly vehement, starting at Union Square and marching to Trump Tower. Thousands of ordinary citizens opposed to Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric and sexist behavior and statements, among other issues, were joined by not a few celebrities. The actor Mark Ruffalo was spotted, but refrained from including curse words in his chants since he had brought his young daughter along. 
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore attended the rally, and told the Huffington Post that the protests must go on and on. “We had all those big protests before the Iraq war and once the war started, everyone stopped protesting,” Moore said. “This time, we keep it up and we don’t stop till he’s out of there.”
According to the Washington Post, "In Oakland, Calif., two police officers were injured and two patrol cars burned as thousands of protesters took to the streets and chanted slogans against Trump, a police spokeswoman said. A few protesters threw objects at police dressed in riot gear, smashed windows and started small fires in the downtown area."
Protesters shut down California's Interstate 101 for a time and called for their state to secede, a movement now known as “Cal-exit.” Many of the demonstrators in Los Angeles who showed up were Latino, responding to Trump's racist vitriol against immigrants. 
It's worth noting that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. And while Trump earned a significant portion of the millennial vote of 18- to 29-year-olds (37 percent), Clinton's 55 percent of that demographic would have delivered her a landslide win. 
Ironically, after Tuesday night's results rolled in, "Make America Great Again" took on a whole new meaning. These anti-Trump protests in the wake of the election could signify a raucous beginning of a long wave of social action during a Trump administration.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
