Trump Has Protesters Forcefully Removed for Photo-Op by Military

Trump behaved like a dictator, unleashing security forces to remove peaceful protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets so he could have Photo-Op in front of church.

CNN’s Jim Acosta says it appears that protesters were cleared so Trump could stage a photo event at the St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House and CNN’s Kaitlin Collins reports that sources are telling CNN that Trump did so because he was angry about having to go to a bunker during the protests.

Disgusting to see Trump holding a bible and pretending to be a religious person when everything about him is diametrically opposed to decency and Christ’s teachings. Also disgusting how many people is fooled by this “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

Bill Barr Personally Ordered Attack On Protesters Outside The White House

Reports have now indicated that Attorney General William Barr is the one who ordered the gassing of the protesters outside of the White House so that Donald Trump could go have his little photo op in front of a church. This isn’t surprising – Barr is the “top cop” in the country, so it only seems fitting that he would behave like the renegade tough-guy officers we’re seeing attack protesters all over the country.

Military Confirms It Sought Information on Using ‘Heat Ray’ Against D.C. Protesters

Updated at 2:51 p.m. ET A spokesperson for Joint Forces Headquarters Command in Washington, D.C., confirmed to NPR that hours before federal police officers cleared a crowded park near the White House with smoke and tear gas on June 1, a military police staff officer asked if the D.C.

Per the article above; “A spokesperson for Joint Forces Headquarters Command in Washington, D.C., confirmed to NPR that hours before federal police officers cleared a crowded park near the White House with smoke and tear gas on June 1, a military police staff officer asked if the D.C. National Guard had a kind of “heat ray” weapon that might be deployed against demonstrators in the nation’s capital.

Col. Robert Phillips, a spokesperson for the Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region, or JFHQ-NCR, said the inquiry was made “as a matter of due diligence and prudent military planning.”

The command “inquired informally about capabilities across the full-spectrum of non-lethal systems, to include the Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) and Active Denial System (ADS),” Phillips told NPR in a written statement. “JFHQ-NCR does not possess these systems, did not request such systems, and no further action was taken as a result of the officer’s E-Mail query.”

The military developed the ADS some 20 years ago as a way to disperse crowds. There have been questions about whether it worked, or should be deployed in the first place. It uses millimeter wave technology essentially to heat the skin of people targeted by its invisible ray.

Sound cannon

The second piece of equipment DeMarco said they asked for was a kind of sound cannon called an LRAD. NPR reported last week that by not using one, authorities may have violated court-ordered regulations that spell out how demonstrators in the nation’s capital are to be warned before aggressive tactics are used against them.

Attorneys who helped write the agreed-upon rules as part of a 2015 settlement agreement said federal police are required to warn large crowds multiple times they need to disperse, and they must do so loudly enough that the orders can be heard for blocks. That’s how an LRAD would be used in this case. The LRAD emits a piercing noise and then can broadcast a voice or a recording at a deafening level. The idea is to allow people at the back of a crowd to hear instructions.

That notice did not appear to happen on June 1. Protesters who were there said police advanced through the crowd with little warning, firing tear gas and smoke canisters shortly before President Trump appeared outside for a photograph in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church.
