    Homeowner Forced To Grab AR-15 To Defend Property Is Lawyer Who Represented VICTIM OF POLICE BRUTALITY



    Mark McCloskey, who along with his wife grabbed weapons to defend their St. Louis home from demonstrators who were protesting police brutality, had previously represented a victim of police brutality.


    “The man – who was identified by the initials I.F. – was kicked and struck by police officer David Maas in shocking dashcam footage that appeared to show him surrendering,” The Daily Mail reported. “The initials match a 2019 civil lawsuit made by Isaiah Forman in which the same allegations are put forward. “


    Police at the time said Forman, then 21, was driving a car that had been taken by another man at gunpoint. The lawsuit against Maas claimed that Forman had ‘surrendered peaceably’.


    According to the indictment, Maas kicked and struck Forman in April 2019 while the man was compliant and not posing a physical threat to anyone, causing ‘bodily injury’ and depriving him of his right to be ‘free from unreasonable force.’



    A lawyer for Maas argued that Forman had ‘aggressively resisted arrest’ and ‘struck a police vehicle, narrowly missing a police officer in the process.’ Maas was charged with one count of deprivation of rights under color of law in March 2020. Mr. McCloskey said of the case: ‘I’m glad that the law enforcement agencies are subject to the same standard as everybody else.’


    Forman pleaded guilty to crashing his car into a police vehicle during the chase and is serving a seven year sentence for second-degree assault on a special victim.


    Husband and wife Mark and Patricia McCloskey, could be seen on Twitter posts aiming the weapons at the protesters in the wealthy section of the city Forest Park area about 6 p.m. on Sunday.


    Outside their large house called the Niemann Mansion, the husband strapped on the AR-15 as the wife moved about on the lawn brandishing the handgun.


    “A couple has come out of their house and is pointing guns at protesters in their neighborhood,” one person wrote on Twitter.

    “[H]ere’s what happens when you march on Portland Place in St. Louis, MO,” another wrote. “[T]hey’re scared of their own community.”

    The homeowners weren’t wrong — protesters have trashed St. Louis, smashing store windows and toppling statues they deem offensive.
    “The protesters were en route to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home to demand her resignation after she released the names and addresses of residents who had suggested defunding the police department.,” the Daily Mail wrote.

    “They had broken their way into the gated community where the McCloskeys live. The pair are both personal injury lawyers and run McCloskey Law Center from inside their extravagant home.

    St. Louis Homeowner Speaks Out After Confronting BLM Militants with Firearm, ‘The Only Thing That Stopped the Mob Was my Rifle’



    St. Louis homeowner Mark McCloskey spoke out in his first on-camera interview since he confronted Black Lives Matter militants who broke through a gate onto a private street in his neighborhood.


    A livestream of the militant mob clearly shows they entered through a gate into a private community.


    In this livestream footage you can clearly see the STL black lives matter mob entered through the gate to a private community. This was not a public sidewalk. https://t.co/NeKHgTBWEu pic.twitter.com/UdYq3pGtlb

    Mark McCloskey and his wife Patricia defended their home from hundreds of Black Lives Matter militants.



    Mr. McCloskey explained during his on-camera interview on Monday that he announced to the Marxist mob that they were on private property and that’s when they became enraged.


    “We came back to the house. I don’t know what time it is, I’ve been up ever since. I’m a little, I’m a little blurry, but we were preparing dinner. We went out to the east patio, open porch that faces Kingshighway on one side and Portland Place Drive on the south, and we’re sitting down for dinner. We heard all this stuff going on down on Maryland Plaza. And then the mob started to move up Kingshighway, but it got parallel with the Kingshighway gate on Portland Place,” Mark McCloseky said.


    “Somebody forced the gate, and I stood up and announced that this is private property. Go back. I can’t remember in detail anymore. I went inside, I got a rifle. And when they … because as soon as I said this is private property, those words enraged the crowd,” he said.


    McClosky said one of the militants pulled out a loaded pistol magazine and clicked them together and said ‘you’re next.’


    “We were threatened with our lives, threatened with a house being burned down, my office building being burned down, even our dog’s life being threatened. It was, it was about as bad as it can get,” McCloskey said.


    McCloskey believes that the only thing that stopped the crowd from approaching his home was his rifle.


    “Everything inside the Portland Place gate is private property. There is nothing public in Portland Place. Being inside that gate is like being in my living room. There is no public anything in Portland Place,” he said.

    Let me remind you the US Constitution is for all US citizens. The Stars and Bars were a rejection of that! That is its heritage!
    The right thing to do? Spoken like a true yankee!

    The civil war was about a lot more than slavery. It was also about state's rights, which is a central theme in our Constitution. Southerners, most of whom were NOT slave owners, were tired of the more politically powerful northern states shoving policy down their throats. It was called "the war of northern aggression" for a reason. For many in the south, those stars & bars are not a symbol of slavery but a symbol of their heritage, the good & the bad. How "constitutional" was it when southern states were ransacked & robbed of their wealth by the union army at the end of the war??? Making statements like the one above makes you sound a whole lot like the people out there tearing down statues.

    U.S. Bill of Rights

    On September 25, 1789, Congress transmitted to the state Legislatures twelve proposed amendments to the Constitution. Numbers three through twelve were adopted by the states to become the United States (U.S.) Bill of Rights, effective December 15, 1791.
    James Madison proposed the U.S. Bill of Rights. It largely responded to the Constitution's influential opponents, including prominent Founding Fathers, who argued that the Constitution should not be ratified because it failed to protect the basic principles of human liberty. The U.S. Bill of Rights was influenced by George Mason's 1776 Virginia Declaration of Rights, the 1689 English Bill of Rights, works of the Age of Enlightenment pertaining to natural rights, and earlier English political documents such as the Magna Carta (1215).
    Two additional articles were proposed to the States; only the final ten articles were ratified quickly and correspond to the First through Tenth Amendments to the Constitution. The first Article, dealing with the number and apportionment of U.S. Representatives, never became part of the Constitution. The second Article, limiting the ability of Congress to increase the salaries of its members, was ratified two centuries later as the 27th Amendment. Though they are incorporated into the document known as the "Bill of Rights", neither article establishes a right as that term is used today. For that reason, and also because the term had been applied to the first ten amendments long before the 27th Amendment was ratified, the term "Bill of Rights" in modern U.S. usage means only the ten amendments ratified in 1791.
    The United States Bill of Rights plays a central role in American law and government, and remains a fundamental symbol of the freedoms and culture of the nation. One of the original fourteen copies of the U.S. Bill of Rights is on public display at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

    Read the Bill of Rights:

    Amendment I (1): Freedom of religion, speech, and the press; rights of assembly and petition
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Amendment II (2): Right to bear arms
    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.


    Amendment III (3): Housing of soldiers
    No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.


    Amendment IV (4): Search and arrest warrants
    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.


    Amendment V (5): Rights in criminal cases
    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb, nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.


    Amendment VI (6): Rights to a fair trial
    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defence.


    Amendment VII (7): Rights in civil cases
    In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.


    Amendment VIII (: Bails, fines, and punishments
    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.


    Amendment IX (9): Rights retained by the people
    The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.


    Amendment X (10): Powers retained by the states and the people
    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    DNC Official 2020 Position: Celebrating July 4th Is “White Supremacy”



    The Democrat party has declared war against America. Republicans have been MIA – hiding under their desks hoping it will all go away. Well, it will all go away if they don’t take a stand.
    Rubicon Crossed – DNC Official 2020 Position: Celebrating July 4th Equals White Supremacy….



    By Sundance, Conservative Treehouse, Last Refuge, June 29, 2020:


    Under normal conditions one might expect to identify this moment as the official moment the rubicon of DNC insanity has been crossed.

    However, it’s 2020;… therefore as soon as you think the boundaries of DNC stupidity have been reached, the DNC will bring out their stupid boundary stretchers.


    In a tweet earlier tonight the DNC takes the official position that celebrating the fourth of July is the equivalent of celebrating white supremacy: [Archived]
