Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) issued a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday regarding St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s hostile prosecution of a couple forced to use firearms to fend off a Black Lives Matter (BLM) terror mob marauding through their neighborhood.
Hawley’s letter accuses Gardner’s office of “targeting of the McCloskey family for using firearms to defend themselves and their property against a mob of protesters.” He believes she abused her power by ordering a raid of the McCloskey family home in which their guns were confiscated.
Gardner’s office responded to news of Hawley’s letter with defiance:
Baseless. Our office will continue to investigate this matter, and will not be bullied by a sitting U.S. Senator or anyone else. https://t.co/IWhHD8RaxG

Missouri Governor Mike Parson and President Donald Trump are in Hawley’s corner against the apparent overreach of Gardner in how her office is coming after the McCloskeys.
“I just got off the phone with the President of the United States before I walked out here today,” Parson said. “He understands the situation in Missouri. He understands the situation in St. Louis and how out of control it is for a prosecutor to let violent criminals off and not do their job and try to attack law-abiding citizens. The conversation I had with the President, said that he would do everything he could within his powers to help with this situation.”
Hawley’s full letter to Barr can be read here:
Dear Attorney General Barr:
As you are well aware, the country is facing a moment of significant public unrest and discord. As many Americans are peacefully exercising their constitutional rights to free speech and protest throughout the country, still others are exploiting this moment as an opportunity to sow violence and destruction. Too often, peaceful demonstrations have devolved into tense standoffs or violent riots, with threats and attacks on businesses, innocent bystanders, and law enforcement officers.
One such incident occurred in St. Louis, Missouri, where a family reportedly faced a mass of demonstrators trespassing on their property and threatening them. When help from the police or from nearby security failed to arrive, this family, the McCloskeys, did what any reasonable person would do: they retrieved their lawfully owned firearms and defended their property and their lives. The confrontation was resolved with no one being hurt.
Unfortunately, this family is facing new threats, not from demonstrators but from the local government. St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is now threatening to prosecute not the trespassers, but the McCloskeys, and she is using the powers of her office to target them. Her office has seized their firearms, and police have applied for warrants in the case, with an indictment believed to be imminent.1
This is an unacceptable abuse of power and threat to the Second Amendment, and I urge you to consider a federal civil rights investigation into the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office to determine whether this investigation and impending prosecution violates this family’s constitutional rights. There is no question under Missouri law that the McCloskeys had the right to own and use their firearms to protect themselves from threatened violence, and that any criminal prosecution for these actions is legally unsound. The only possible motivation for the investigation, then, is a politically motivated attempt to punish this family for exercising their Second Amendment rights. Indeed, this is part of a troubling pattern of politically motivated prosecutorial decisions by the St. Louis Circuit Attorney, who has not seen fit to prosecute many violent offenders, 2 and who has expressed hostility to gun rights in the past. 3 Recently, reports indicate that she declined to pursue charges against dozens of individuals arrested during a weekend of riots in the city.4
The Second Amendment is not a second-class right. No family should face the threat of harassment or malicious prosecution for exercising that right. The Department of Justice must ensure that all Americans’ rights are protected from this kind of abuse of power. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Comes Out in Favor of ‘Awesome, Incredible, Beautiful and Wonderful’ Trans Children
AOC at her dumbest and most dangerous.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come out explicitly in favor of transgender children and denigrated Republicans for being concerned about children being abused by child-grooming enthusiasts.
“Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet.
“Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves,” she added, finishing her inane post with the hashtag #LetThemPlay.
A screenshot of the tweet can be seen here:
While dullards like Ocasio-Cortez may believe that transgender children are merely expressing themselves, the fact of the matter is that children are being indoctrinated and recruited into a dangerous lifestyle by degenerates.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on how the transgender community is abusing children, with footage from HBO’s Transhood documentary series illustrating the depravity of this movement:
A new HBO television show “Transhood” is demonstrating the inner workings of the youth LGBT movement and the depths of their depravity and perversion.
One clip features a butch lesbianic woman and her “daughter” Avery, and it shows exactly how children are being systemically abused by pederasts.
“We actually go and meet with our senators and our representatives, and after that, we go and sit and sell some of Avery’s books for a little while,” the ghoulish woman said of her daughter who she uses as a political prop.
This is when Avery expressed the sentiment that she does not want to be exploited for the pleasure of reprobates.
“I just don’t want to even have a book. I’ve done too much in this world. It’s ruined my life enough and now, everyone in this world is going to know if I sell my book, it’s going to get on the news along with me for like the 50th time at this point, and it’s going to make my life worse,” Avery said.
“A couple of years ago, you wanted people to know,” the “mother” responded.
“Yeah, I did, but I know that was a stupid, silly mistake and now I don’t,” Avery said…
Avery’s words show how transgender children can be pushed into that lifestyle by outside forces and then come to regret their actions after they mature.
Any nation, civilization or people that will accept their children being victimized by predators on a widespread scale does not deserve to exist. The idiocy of AOC and other “empowered women” could result in a new dark age.
