8:15 p.m.: Trump to visit Kenosha on Tuesday

President Donald Trump will visit Kenosha on Tuesday after the city has gone three nights without any unrest, according to a White House pool report.
The announcement comes a day after Trump addressed the Kenosha Police Department’s shooting of Jacob Blake for the first time.
After a rally in New Hampshire on Friday, Trump said of the shooing: “It was not a good sight. I didn’t like the sight of it, certainly, and I think most people would agree with that,” according to CNN.
Trump referenced Kenosha during the Republican National Convention but did not make specific remarks about the shooting that left Blake, 29, paralyzed from the waist down after being shot seven times in the back at point-blank range by Kenosha Officer Rusten Sheskey on Aug. 23.
During a press conference Saturday, Trump was asked if he would visit the city and he said “probably so,” because of the presence of National Guard troops.
“With Kenosha it’s been in very, very good shape from the moment they set foot in that area,” he said.
National Guard troops first arrived in Kenosha on Monday, but unrest persisted in the city the following two nights. On Tuesday night, two people were fatally shot and a third was injured. Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, Ill., has been charged in connection to the killings.
When asked about that shooting Saturday, Trump said he would comment on it in 24 to 48 hours after receiving more information.
Since Tuesday’s shooting, the number of National Guard troops has swelled to more than a thousand, with others from the states of Michigan, Alabama and Arizona on the way, according to Major General Paul Knapp.

8 p.m.: Kenosha speaker strays from message, says "it's time for us to kill one of yours."

Saturday's peaceful march through Kenosha concluded with a variety of speakers calling for justice and peaceful resolutions after Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a police officer Aug. 23.
But one of the last speakers given the microphone, who was not identified, had a more aggressive message: "If you kill one of ours, it’s time for us to kill one of yours. I know everybody don’t want to hear that. But (expletive), why are we the ones who have to keep burying ours and got to keep clean for you to see us as being human? We ain't never did nothing to nobody.”
The remarks were met with a muted response from the crowd, which numbered in the thousands. 
Earlier speakers included members of Blake's family, state officials and local leaders, who encouraged the crowd to demand justice and accountability from officials and to vote.
Blake's father, also named Jacob Blake, called for civility: 
“If we tear it up, we have nothing,” Blake Sr. said. “I don’t want you all to be homeless. I don’t want you to be store-less. I don’t want you not to be able to buy your sons, daughters and grandbabies the food and the milk that they need ... show them for one night, we don’t have to tear up nothing.”

Saturday, 3:30 p.m.: Thousands march in Kenosha with Blake family, state leaders

Thousands of people gathered in Kenosha on Saturday to march down Sheridan Road towards the county courthouse, where protests have centered for much of the last week.
The march included speeches from the sister and father of Jacob Blake, 29, who was shot seven times in the back by Kenosha place on Aug. 23. U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore and Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes also addressed the crowd.
Speaking from a microphone outside the courthouse, Blake's father, also named Jacob Blake, asked the Kenosha Police Department, "What gives you the right to treat my son like an animal?"
He implored the crowd to stay peaceful after the rally and to also vote in the upcoming November election.
“We’re going to make legislation happen because that’s all that they recognize.”

'God said: Do a Kenosha barbeque. We did:' Uptown Kenosha church holds community event

From The Journal

Rachel Kubik

KENOSHA — The only building left undamaged on the west side of the 6100 block of 22nd Avenue in Uptown is Kingdom Word Global Impact Ministries, a storefront church in what used to be a Salvation Army store. That building became the center for community on Saturday.

People shuffled through lines of stocked tables, grabbing food, water, school supplies, diapers, hygiene products and more. Music played as people gathered to eat and relax.

All items were donated by people in the community. Volunteers stood behind tables serving food and handing out supplies. A local Culver’s set up a booth and gave out free frozen custard as well.

On that same block, a free BBQ event took place Saturday, intended for people recovering from the past week’s events.

Kingdom Word Pastor David Montgomery helped coordinate the event, which he said was a success: “I think we are achieving our objective, Kingdom Word’s and God’s Kitchen’s … we’re becoming a distribution center for the Uptown area and we’re definitely getting a lot of love from the community.”

Uptown was the center of rioting and fires on Monday, with the west side of 22nd Avenue from 61st Street south to Roosevelt Road burning.

People began dropping off donations the day after the fire.

This was the fourth day of helping those who needed it, Montgomery said. “It started small, and today it’s just gotten to the point where it’s just large. They (people of Uptown) need the help. It was already an impoverished area anyway.”

Arnetta Griffin is a member of the church and has been providing meals and supplies for homeless people and others in need in the Uptown neighborhood for the past three years through God’s Kitchen of Kenosha.

“God said: 'Do this. Do a Kenosha barbeque.’ We did a Kenosha barbeque,” Griffin said. “The community really came together. That’s why I love Kenosha … because when times get hard, our neighbors is here.”

Montgomery said people often have to gather their mindset when devastation hits.

“They are trying to gather the fact that they used to always go to the ice cream shop here and they would sell tacos and food. Now they can’t go there,” he said. “They’d go to the grocery store. Now they can’t get diapers, they can’t get toiletries. (This BBQ) is really just being a supplement.”

Kenosha resident Joy Latuvnik-Morin said she came to the event on Saturday because “it’s our community, I’m a person of color, we’re gay,” she said, sitting under a tree next to her wife, Marianne Latuvnik-Morin, with a plate of food. “This is what we’re working for, is to have community, trust and everybody just coming together and helping each other out.”

“It’s nice to know that the community can come back after everything that’s been done, as strong as we have,” Marianne added.

Kenosha updates: Kyle Rittenhouse's legal team says he acted in self-defense against a 'mob' of attackers

From JSOnline:

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

7:15 p.m.: Kyle Rittenhouse's legal team says he acted in self-defense
The legal team representing Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with intentional homicide and reckless homicide in the fatal shootings of two people during protests Tuesday in Kenosha, says he was defending himself from a "mob" of attackers.
In a release issued by the law firm Pierce Bainbridge, his lawyers say they will fight the charges and take the case to trial if need be.
The release says that before the shootings, Rittenhouse was "accosted," "verbally threatened and taunted" by "rioters" Tuesday night while guarding a mechanic’s shop along Sheridan Road with a group of armed men.
The release says "rioters" at one point started chasing Rittenhouse. He was being chased when he heard a gunshot behind him. The release says he turned and was faced with "an attacker lunging towards him and reaching for his rifle."
According to the criminal complaint, 26-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum was shot, fatally, several times while unarmed.
Rittenhouse's legal team argues he was justified in firing his weapon to protect himself.
The release goes on to describe "a growing mob" that chased Rittenhouse down the street until he fell down. The people chasing him "kicked" him and "bashed him over the head with a skateboard."
The criminal complaint describes that a crowd followed Rittenhouse, with people shouting "get him!" and saying he had just shot someone. Several people tried to disarm Rittenhouse, including 26-year-old Anthony Huber, who was holding a skateboard in his right hand and reached for the teen's gun with his other hand.
"In fear for his life and concerned the crowd would either continue to shoot at him or even use his own weapon against him, Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers," the release says.
Rittenhouse's legal team says he turned himself in to police in Antioch and fully cooperated with law enforcement.

6:45 p.m.: Zuckerberg says Facebook should have taken down event that encouraged armed people to go to Kenosha

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg addressed employees Friday and said the “Armed Citizens to Protect our Lives and Property” event, hosted by the Kenosha Guard on Tuesday night, was in violation of policies and should have been removed.
He also shared the video on Facebook.

Facebook received complaints about the event, but contractors and other reviewers did not recognize that it was in violation, he said.
Now 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, shown in videos from Tuesday night hanging out with older armed men and saying his job was to protect businesses and people, has been charged with homicide after two protesters were shot to death.
Teams at Facebook are now proactively looking for contact that praises the shooting and removing it, Zuckerberg said.
Facebook also investigated events and "pieces of content" connected to Kenosha this week. Zuckerberg said there was no evidence that Rittenhouse responded to the event on Facebook or had interaction with the Kenosha Guard group.
After designating the event as a mass murder, Facebook removed Jacob Rittenhouse's Facebook and Instagram accounts. 
Zuckerberg led the meeting by speaking about Kenosha police shooting Jacob Blake on Sunday. 
"The juxtaposition of seeing Jacob Blake kind of facing away from police and being shot, next to images of this white kid with a long gun strapped to his body, walking by the police with nothing happening, I think just kind of symbolizes what we all feel is wrong and unjust and just how much progress still needs to be made."

An open letter to Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Gravely

From Racine County Corruption:

Mr. Gravely,

Equal protect of the law is mandated by the U.S. Constitution, Wisconsin Constitution, numerous Wisconsin statutes and Federal law.

You have shown great bias and prejudice by your errors, acts and omissions concerning the immediate charging of Kyle Riddenhouse and NOT immediately charging Gaige Grosskreutz.

Your knee jerk reaction to charge Rittenhouse before having all the facts highlight your inadequacies as a public servant.

Further, numerous videos online show Gaige Grosskreutz armed with a pistol and attacking Rittenhouse.


You cannot expect the support of law abiding citizens when you do not act in a professional manner.

You should watch the movie Blue Thunder and learn how to think before you ever charge anyone again.


You may email District Attorney Michael Gravely at


From Racine County Corruption:

That's the word from BLM supporters  
How did Kenosha get to this point  ?

Why did thousands feel the need to come to Kenosha to create mayhem, riot and burn parts of the city to the ground?

Why have thousands contributed to "go fund me" accounts to support criminals?

Why is Kenosha Police chief  Mikinis and Kenosha Sheriff Beth considered the Nero's of Kenosha?

And why is it a 17 year old kid from Antioch joined an ad hoc militia to protect citizens in Kenosha?

Kyle Rittenhouse is the 17 year old kid that did what many say needed to be done. As law enforcement coward down, citizen militias freely rose to do what law enforcement are paid to do.  

Let's look at the victims
Anthony Huber
recently dispatched, was age 26 from Silver Lake,Wi.
The press says he was an avid skateboarder but didn't list a job and the press failed to mention his criminal record.
Previous residence included KCDC.

Gaige Grosskreutz
aka crybaby  
DOB 11-04-1993 from West Allis, Wi.
Gaige Grosskreutz was shot in the right arm as he attacked and pointed a pistol at Rittenhouse. 
Grosskreutz is the wimpy man pictured crying like a little baby while still holding a handgun in the hand of his injured arm.
Grosskreutz has a criminal record and may now have trouble jacking off with his right hand.

Joseph D. Rosenbaum 

Deceased, DOB 9-21-83 was 36 when he was dispatched.
Rosenbaum also had a criminal record and was scheduled to be in court in short order.
We guess he won't make his next criminal court date.

So what are the chances that all three assholes whom had criminal records were there to protect public interests?

How about ZERO !

It appears Rittenhouse has engaged in better law enforcement policy than paid professionals by ridding our community permanently of two thugs.

Now let's get back to the title of 7 shots = 7 days of mayhem.

We have received confirmation that additional terrorist are on the way to Kenosha to further create mayhem.

Will mob rule continue to be the rule of Kenosha ?
Will the NERO's of Kenosha take back the rule of law?

ACLU calls for 'immediate resignations' of Kenosha police chief and sheriff

From The Journal

Adam Rogan

KENOSHA — The American Civil Liberties Union, via both the national organization and its Wisconsin branch, has called for the immediate resignations of Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis and Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth for what the ACLU considers to be a “Failed Response to Attempted Murder of Jacob Blake.”
The ACLU made the announcement Thursday afternoon. They blame the law enforcement leadership for failures that led to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, the death of two protesters and for allowing the alleged shooter of the protesters — 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of Illinois — to get away.
“Sheriff David Beth’s deputies not only fraternized with white supremacist counter-protesters on Tuesday, but allowed the shooter to leave as people yelled that he was the shooter. The sheriff excused this by saying his deputies may not have paid attention to the gunman because there were many distractions, including ‘screaming and ‘hollering, people running, police vehicles idling, nonstop radio traffic, and that ‘in situations that are high stress, you have such an incredible tunnel vision,” the ACLU’s release stated, quoting statements made by Beth during a Wednesday press conference.
I call upon the leadership of the ACLU to resign because of their rush to judgement without knowing all of the facts.  How easy it must be to view a few videos and then pander to the anti-police sentiment of the media.  They're lawyers.  They should know better than this.  What absolute horseshit.

WI Gov Tony Evers and the WI Government are Criminals

From Racine WI – Sin City:

Reblogged from Vox Popoli:

Antifa are hired convicts

Consider criminal backgrounds of the three “victims” who were shot, two of them fatally, after attacking an armed teenager in Kenosha, Wisconsin this week:
  • Joseph Rosenbaum, convicted pedophile. Served 12.5 years for sexual contact with a minor.
  • Gaige Grosskreutz, a convicted burglar who was illegally carrying a gun.
  • Anthony Huber, convicted domestic abuser. Convicted of multiple domestic abuse counts, ADW, battery, false imprisonment, and “strangulation and suffocation”.
The Wisconsin government shouldn’t be charging Kyle Rittenhouse with murder, they should be giving him a medal! And these “protests” are about as genuine as the astroturf in the Superdome. Meanwhile, a commenter at Instapundit makes a very pertinent observation about the Kenosha riots.
Joseph Rosenbaum appears in another video, and I can’t find it now, where he is face to face with armed militia. Rosenbaum is a short guy who goes up against big guys to prove that he, a short guy, is more of a badass than the bigger guy.. You can see it in that other video. But the problem is, the armed militia KEEP BACKING UP. while the protesters keep advancing and closing the distance until the protesters are again face to face with the armed militia. The (apparent) leader of the armed militia keeps grabbing his militiamen and pulling them back from the confrontation. The protesters are not afraid of the militiamen who have guns, because the militiamen have demonstrated that they WILL NOT SHOOT, and will back up. If you are going to a riot with a firearm, and will not shoot, then don’t go armed to a riot. If you are going to a riot to protect property, then don’t back up. If you are not going to fight, then don’t go to the riot.
Carrying a weapon you are afraid to use is worse than no weapon at all. Showing up for a battle you are unwilling to fight is worse than not showing up at all.
UPDATE: It occurs to me if Trump wants to take another five points from Biden, he should issue a Federal pardon to Kyle Rittenhouse, invite him to the White House, and give him a medal.

Armed Kenosha shooting victim tells friend he regrets ‘NOT KILLING THE KID’ in Facebook post

Gaige Grosskreutz was armed with a pistol when 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse blew his bicep apart with a semi-automatic rifle in Kenosha, Wisconsin. In a Facebook post that’s gone viral, Grosskreutz regrets not killing the teen.
Rittenhouse has been arrested and charged with murder after he shot three people during the rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night. Two died, and a third, Grosskreutz, has had surgery to repair a massive bullet wound to his bicep.
Grosskreutz was one of two men caught on video attacking Rittenhouse, who was apparently fleeing the scene of the first shooting. As gunshots rang out from an unknown source, Grosskreutz moved in on Rittenhouse, who at this point was lying on his back after shooting the second man. When Rittenhouse aimed his rifle at Grosskreutz, the man backed off. However, when Grosskreutz moved in again, this time apparently with a pistol drawn, Rittenhouse unloaded a round into his arm.
With the public divided over whether Rittenhouse acted in self-defense, a series of Facebook posts by Grosskreutz’s friend, Jacob Marshall, went viral on Thursday. In comments under a photo of Grosskreutz after surgery, Marshall described how Gaige had his gun drawn at the time of the shooting.
