Defense Secretary Mark Esper has made it clear that the Trump administration will not be intervening with federal forces to put down mobs in cities that have been on fire for days amidst leftist riots and strife.
Esper started his press conference by bemoaning the “horrible crime” committed by police officer Derek Chauvin against serial felon George Floyd in the Minneapolis streets and said all the cops involved should “be held accountable for his murder.”
“With great sympathy, I want to extend the deepest of condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd, for me and the department,” Esper said during a briefing at the Pentagon.
“Racism is real in America, and we must all do our very best to recognize it, to confront it, and to eradicate it,” he added, echoing Black Lives Matter talking points.
Esper made it clear that there are no plans to unleash military on the streets to restore order. He claimed that the emergency going on right now did not indicate the need for this kind of response. Esper is apparently content to let the streets burn, property be destroyed, and law enforcement to be run down in the streets like dogs without intervening.
“The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now,” Esper said.
Esper should tell that to retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, the 77-year-old man who was gunned down in the streets by rioting savages on Tuesday morning.
Big League Politics reported:
Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.
His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.
President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.
Esper should also tell that this situation is not “urgent and dire” to the family of the U.S. Marshal that was shot in the head by a thug and later pronounced deceased during Las Vegas riots on Monday.
Big League Politics reported:
8 News Now Metro of Las Vegas is reporting that a U.S. Marshal has been killed after being shot in the head during Monday’s race riots.
Reports emerged late on Monday that a U.S. Marshal had been killed during a shootout with an armed rioter near the city’s federal courthouse.
8 News Now originally reported that the marshal had been shot in the head. The shooting death appeared to take place after the evening’s protest and riot activities had been contained by law enforcement, perhaps suggesting that an armed rioter intentionally targeted law enforcement in the shooting.
Because of deep state bureaucrats like Esper, President Trump is watching his country descend into chaos and anarchy while doing little other than offering bluster as his nation burns.
Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick
She’s reportedly the frontrunner.
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
