Fortunately it looks like they've moved on from The White House and the tension has been defused for now. Can we keep The White House locked down until November?
White House goes on lockdown after protest erupts nearby
BY BROOKE SEIPEL - 05/29/20 07:55 PM EDT

The White House went into lockdown on Friday night as protests over the death of George Floyd raged nearby, according to reporters who said they were in the building at the time. NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander said on Twitter that he was on lockdown inside the building as protests raged nearby. Photos show demonstrators gathering in Lafayette Park just outside the White House. One video shows "Fuck Trump" being spray-painted onto Freedman's Bank Building, which is adjacent to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The White House is under lockdown orders from the U.S. Secret Service due to protests outside the gates over George Floyd.
A dozen reporters, myself included, still inside the West Wing.

The protest then headed to in front of the White House. A protester was taken by the USSS in front of Pennsylvania Ave into an adjacent federal building. Unclear what he did.A couple men then splintered off from the group and spray painted “F*ck Trump” on the building. @cbsnews pic.twitter.com/OVwPu0PF6X

The Hill has reached out to the White House and Secret Service for comment.

Massive protests have taken place across the country as people express outrage over police brutality in the wake of George Floyd's death this week.

I posted this in the wrong thread. Sorry.
Kaitlan Collins ✔@kaitlancollins

Secret Service has closed the park and isn’t letting anyone off the White House grounds at the moment. You can hear chants of, “I can’t breathe.”

Protesters are now in front of the White House chanting George Floyd’s name.

So far, Chicago has been quiet ( knock on wood)

I have a school renovation project on the west side, in really sketchy neighborhood. Lots of drug users.

We started Thursday, and there were a lot of people just milling around the streets at 7:00 am. Lots of cops as well.

They are working the weekend and I told the on site project manager "look, it things get weird, pull the plug and shut it down." We have lead abatement workers scraping paint from a third floor exterior cornice. These guys are going to be targets on a stick.

A protest is scheduled Downtown on Sat., May 30 in response to the death of George Floyd, a Black man who was killed earlier this week by a Minneapolis Police officer. The protest is part of growing anger and increased protests across the country demanding an end to racist police brutality.

The Pittsburgh protest, organized by Steel City Autonomous Movement (SCAM), aims to "to show solidarity with the protesters in Minneapolis fighting to end the state-sponsored murder of black people."
Hopefully, it will stay non-violent.

11:15pm EDT -- Scene has gotten violent again in front of the White House. CNN is live there. Brian Todd said it's been escalating for the last half hour or so. People are pushing the barricades away from the police officers -- DC police and Secret Service are trying to react, people are really mad.

'I can't breathe': Protests over George Floyd's death reach Portland
Hundreds of Mainers took to the streets of downtown Portland Friday afternoon to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody this week.


NEWS CENTER Maine's Zach Blanchard reports the message of the protestors is that in Maine, there's this idea that racism doesn't exist—that Maine is in a bubble, of sorts. But the group wants to make clear that racism is alive and well in Maine, just as it is across the country.

Mainers of all ages and races were at the protest Friday, including 5-year-old Kingston Lamore, who quietly held a sign that read "I pray I never fit the description."
The Portland Police Department issued an open letter to the Portland community on Friday, saying they "are saddened and deeply disturbed by the recent and tragic police-involved fatality in Minneapolis, MN."

During the protest on Friday, a man collapsed in the crowd as protestors chanted from the steps of the Portland Police station. As police helped the man and gave him some water, a person yelled "We love you Portland Police!"

Courier Journal: Viral photo shows line of white people between police, black protesters at Thursday rally

A photo from Thursday night's protest in downtown Louisville appears to show a line of white women, arms locked, standing between Louisville Metro Police officers and black protesters.

It quickly went viral, shared on social media by organizations like the Kentucky National Organization for Women, where it was shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook.

"This is a line of white people forming a barrier between Black protesters and the police. This is love. This is what you do with your privilege," the post states.

Tim Druck, a Louisville photographer, captured the moment at the rally, where people called for justice in the death of Breonna Taylor, who was shot in her apartment in March by Louisville police during a no-knock warrant.

We had a protest here yesterday, maybe 3 dozen people, but the cops weren't visible or necessary. The guy in the white van was doing the "enforcement" for them.

This should put Karl Koenigs and the AMFF and SovCits in an absolute tizzy.... they went berserk over their fantasies of the military getting involved when they were just training exercises. What will they think now?
Pentagon Puts Military Police on Alert to Go to Minneapolis
BREITBART NEWS 29 May 20200

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — As unrest spread across dozens of American cities on Friday, the Pentagon took the rare step of ordering the Army to put several active-duty U.S. military police units on the ready to deploy to Minneapolis, where the police killing of George Floyd sparked the widespread protests. Soldiers from Fort Bragg in North Carolina and Fort Drum in New York have been ordered to be ready to deploy within four hours if called, according to three people with direct knowledge of the orders. Soldiers in Fort Carson, in Colorado, and Fort Riley in Kansas have been told to be ready within 24 hours. The people did not want their names used because they were not authorized to discuss the preparations.

The get-ready orders were sent verbally on Friday, after President Donald Trump asked Defense Secretary Mark Esper for military options to help quell the unrest in Minneapolis after protests descended into looting and arson in some parts of the city. Trump made the request on a phone call from the Oval Office on Thursday night that included Esper, National Security Advisor Robert O’ Brien and several others. The president asked Esper for rapid deployment options if the Minneapolis protests continued to spiral out of control, according to one of the people, senior Pentagon official who was on the call. ”When the White House asks for options, someone opens the drawer and pulls them out so to speak.” the official said.

The person said the military units would be deployed under the Insurrection Act of 1807, which was last used in 1992 during the riots in Los Angeles that followed the Rodney King trial. “If this is where the president is headed response-wise, it would represent a significant escalation and a determination that the various state and local authorities are not up to the task of responding to the growing unrest,” Brad Moss, a Washington D.C.-based attorney, who specializes in national security.

Maybe an early, sober, thoughtful response from a presidential type on all channels might have alleviated some or even most of it. The kind of thing that, say, an FDR or an Obama might have done.

There is nothing the current occupant of the White House, nor his administration, can say or do that will temper things. He has zero cred' and he'll only make the situation worse.

Minnesota elected dudes (Gov, mayors) and public safety folks giving a bang-up press conference.

Bottom line: Minnesota cities are being invaded by out-of-state instigators. Framing the situation as protecting MN residents and freedom of speech. Refusing to let AA community take the blame for the rioting. Mayor of St. Paul says he was told every arrestee from last night was an out-of-state resident. Residents are terrified. Protestors with every right to protest are being used.

I've heard bigots and corrupt pols make the same justification for bringing in the Nat'l Guard. These guys sound like they have their heads screwed on right. I hope to high heavens that they do.

This is what I've suspected — this isn't Minnesotans on a mindless rampage. And the terrified residents and property loss is why I'm horrified by this situation.I feel like it would have died down by now but outside agitators keep fanning. And would like to know who broke the glass at that one place. Because he was definitely agitating.

There's likely an internet footprint for this organization or group of organizations sending in these terrorists.

Edited to add:

And probably in other places, too.

Yeah, during questions, the Gov mentioned this. They're going to release names of arrested and are asking media to help track them down and discover their presence on social media. Gov said he thinks its 80 / 20 outsiders to locals. Which is effing horrific.

He says they're trying to escalate a situation where deadly force is used. Instructing residents to stay home, because he thinks tonight will be worse.

Calling for help from the people. Sounding like a leader in a frightening and serious situation. Damn.

Speaking to Minnesotans. Saying that "these folks," meaning the instigators from out of state, are smart and will adapt
and asking public to help identify them. Last night overwhelmed their ability to keep the peace. Overwhelming numbers.

Reporter: Are you telling folks in your cities not to peacefully protest, that they're providing cover for aggitators?

Mayor of M, "Yes, if you're out tonight, you're helping wrongdoers." "We did not have the numbers early on. We can't do it alone. Now have unified contingent. Need everyone to comply."

Mayor of St. Paul (who is amazing!!!): "There are protestors and agitators." "I hear people saying that the curfew didn't work. To be clear, I don't expect outsiders to obey curfew. Curfew is designed to separate legitimate protestors and agitators, so that we can identify those out to cause destruction. By virtue by being part of a crowd, you will provide cover for agitators, so you must stay at home.

Gov: Speaking at noon with civil rights leaders to work with community.

Reporter: How many nat'l guard?

Nat'l Guard dude: Max is13,000. Minimum, 2,400. In between those numbers.
No matter where you go, there you are! :towel:
