The Justice Department (DOJ) has not hit a single ANTIFA member with charges related to left-wing riots that started in Minneapolis, Minn. and then spread across the nation, an analysis by NPR has discovered.
Of the 51 cases filed by the DOJ regarding the riots, there is nothing mentioned about any involvement with ANTIFA in any court documents. Thus far, 20 people have been hit with arson-related charges, there are 16 cases involve illegal firearms possession, and eight other individuals have charges relating to inciting a riot and civil disturbance.
Although ANTIFA has not been brought to justice, individuals on the Right have been punished harshly in the aftermath of the riots. Three right-wing Nevada men supposedly of the meme-based “Boogaloo” movement were taken in and charged for allegedly plotting violence at Las Vegas protests, even though it does not seem that they engaged in any actual violence.
Attorney General Bill Barr claims that the Justice Department is looking into ANTIFA, and punishing the domestic terror group remains a high priority.
“We have some investigations underway, very focused investigations on certain individuals that relate to ANTIFA,” Barr said during an interview Fox News host Bret Baier.
“But in the initial phase of identifying people and arresting them, they were arrested for crimes that don’t require us to identify a particular group or don’t necessitate that,” he added.
Barr rightly assigned blame on ANTIFA shortly after the nationwide protests grew into riots defined by looting and senseless destruction. ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter are known for having similar violent left-wing displays across the country.
“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the left-wing violence.
“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.
President Donald Trump has announced that ANTIFA will be classified as a terrorist group by the federal government.
The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.

While the lip service is a decent start, the Trump Administration needs to get serious about making examples of ANTIFA terrorists. The terror leaders must be prosecuted, and funding sources choked off to restore law and order.
Congressman Claims Deep State May Have Planted Fake News about Russians in Afghanistan
This is likely the newest Russian hoax.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) believes that certain deep state actors may have planted fake news about the Russians paying Taliban personnel to kill U.S. soldiers.
The story was reported by the New York Times last week, and President Donald Trump has been thrown through the ringer because he supposedly did nothing about it.
The White House has disputed the facts of the story, and Banks told Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM that he thinks this may be the next phase of the Russia scam that has been perpetrated since before Trump was sworn into office.
Banks explained on the show that “initial tactical reports often require additional collection and validation,” and he is angered that the work by the Times could prevent the truth from ever being known.
“Gina Haspel, the CIA director, released a statement, released her first-ever statement, she’s never done this before, but she released a statement saying that the intelligence was not convincing enough that it rose to the point that they took it seriously that should brief the president about the alleged bounties on American troops or American civilians serving in Afghanistan,” Banks said.
“To your point, it’s hit pieces like this that make it much harder for the president to do his job, to get out, to bring our troops home and end the longest war in American history, but also to identify the real threats of the day … the intelligence community spent the last four days focused on refuting this hit piece when they should be focused on the greatest existential threat we face in America today which is combatting the China threat,” he added.
“Democrats want to wear out this Russian-Trump collusion hoax because they want to make hay out of that to divert attention away from the biggest weakness of all from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, the Hunter Biden corruption issue is that Obama record fo appeasing and turning a blind eye to the nefarious actions of China,” Banks explained. “They don’t want to talk about that; that’s why they want to bring out this tired old Russian narrative that the American people have long moved on from.”
The Pentagon has come out and said that there is not enough evidence for the claim to be corroborated.
“The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan – and around the world – most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats,” Pentagon Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement given to American Military News on Monday night.
Yet again, it seems the fake news is putting America last by publishing dubious reports that hurt national security just to attack President Trump.
