The police major who roused the ire of some protesters after criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement has been relieved of her duties with the Louisville Police Department.

Louisville's Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder and Mayor Greg Fischer announced on Friday that Maj. Bridget Hallahan would be relieved of her duties with the department but would remain on staff until Oct. 1, when she will begin her retirement.

Hallahan, who was the leader of the department's 5th Division, outraged many local leaders when she criticized antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters in an email to members of her department. She claimed that protesters were demonstrating against the department "without even knowing the facts."

"These ANTIFA and BLM people, especially the ones who just jumped on the bandwagon ‘yesterday’ because they became ‘woke’ (insert eye roll here), do not deserve a second glance or thought from us. Our little pinky toenails have more character, morals, and ethics, than these punks have in their entire body," Hallahan wrote.

“Do not stop to their level. Do not respond to them. If we do, we only validate what they did. Don’t make them important, because they are not. They will be the ones washing our cars, cashing us out at the Walmart, or living in their parents’ basement playing COD for their entire life," she added.

The email appeared to be sent by Hallahan after members of the department were doxxed by protesters. She told the members of her team that they could "vent" to her if they needed to talk about the stress of the job.

"There is currently no recourse we have for incidents involving the doxing of officers or their families,” Hallahan wrote. “What we can do is speak up against them and put the truth out there."

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) warned “far-right groups” to stay away from the city, stating that “intending to intimidate, create fear, commit violence, or spread hate is not welcome here” — However, he has routinely failed to apply the same standard to Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters who have continually inflicted carnage on the city for well over 100 days.

“On Saturday, Sept. 26, a group of far-right extremists and white nationalist groups will be coming to our city,” Wheeler said in a Thursday op-ed after touting Portland as a sanctuary city and beacon of racial justice.

His reference to “far-right extremists” includes the Proud Boys group, although the city reportedly rejected the group’s permit for a noon protest on Saturday, citing coronavirus related concerns.

“They have announced plans to together at Delta Park, the location of the historic Vanport City, which has important historical context. Vanport was created as a temporary housing project to keep Black residents out of Portland,” he continued, noting that the group choosing Delta Park is insulting, whether “intentional or not.”

Wheeler, who has remained remarkably hands-off on the daily violent protests in his city at the hands of Black Lives Matter protesters and Antifa, said some in the right-wing groups “have a record of racism, intolerance, and hate,” which are “not Portland values.”

“They are not welcome. Hate has no home in Portland. Violence has no home in Portland. Anyone intending to intimidate, create fear, commit violence, or spread hate is not welcome here,” he continued.

Notably, Wheeler joined violent protesters in Portland in July but received no accolades from the group, despite his efforts.

The mayor also cited concern for first responders, despite, figuratively, tying their hands in recent weeks aftPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

A seminary in San Antonio, Texas, was reportedly vandalized Thursday night, residents of the seminary told the Daily Caller and Trinity University student newspaper The Tower.

Assumption Seminary’s glass doors were struck and damaged and a crucifix on the property was desecrated, with a Spurs jersey wrapped around Jesus’s head and Christ’s feet destroyed, a resident told the Caller and The Tower.

“Last night at some point between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. I was sitting in my room working on Latin homework and I heard commotion in the hallway,” Alexander Jacobs, an aspirant who lives in the Discernment House of the seminary, told the Caller. “I asked what’s going on, and they said the building had been attacked.”

“We went downstairs and when I saw the damage to the doors it looked like gunshots at first glance, but we found it was some sort of hammer or weapon used to destroy the doors,” Jacobs said.

A crucifix located on a central part of the property by the main chapel where the seminarians have Mass and pray was also vandalized.

“That’s the most important crucifix on the ground,” Jacobs said. “They smashed Jesus’s feet so his feet are broken. His head was covered with a black Spurs jersey they draped over his head.”

The vandalism occurred a night before Republican Indiana Rep. Jim Banks called on the Department of Justice to investigate “increases in Catholic hate crimes and vandalism” in the United States.

Public schools across the country have endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement and encouraged teachers, students and parents to do the same, with some schools organizing their own BLM protests, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found.

The Black Lives Matter movement has been linked to 91% of riots across the United States between May 24 and Sept. 12, according to the US Crisis Monitor, a joint project of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project and the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton University.

Despite the close links between the Black Lives Matter movement and riots across the country, public schools have been a consistent source of support for the movement.

Buffalo Public Schools integrated Black Lives Matter’s “guiding principles,” which include disrupting the nuclear family, into its curriculum for elementary school students, according to lesson plans obtained and published by Fox News on Friday.

One such principle included in the lesson, “Black Villages,” calls for “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”

Milwaukee Public Schools held a Black Lives Matter Week of Action in February. The listed demands for the week’s events included: “Fund counselors not cops.”

“Please join Ms. Seidel and other Buckman families for a Kid’s March to show support for the memory of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter. Families are encouraged to make signs and meet in front of Buckman at 3pm on Sunday, June 7th,” the principal of Buckman Elementary, a Portland public school, told students in a newsletter.

With many criticizing 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of hiding in his basement for the majority of his campaign, presidential debates seemingly would be a good way for the former vice president to refute claims of a decline in mental cognizance and that he is pushing a socialist agenda.

During a Friday interview on CBS’s “This Morning,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doubled down on saying Biden should not debate President Donald Trump. Pelosi argued that Trump “has no fidelity to fact or truth” and “isn’t committed to our Constitution,” thus she asked “why bother” holding a debate with him.

Host Gayle King asked, “You had earlier suggested that you didn’t think Biden should debate. Do you still feel that way?”

“I do,” Pelosi replied. “Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually, in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States. He and his henchmen are a danger with their comments, are a danger to our democracy. So, I didn’t want to give him — you know, why bother — you know, he doesn’t tell the truth, he isn’t committed to our Constitution.”

King pushed back against Pelosi, referring to Trump’s supporters as “henchmen,” suggesting it could be “just as insulting” as the things he says about her.

“Your language to some is just as egregious as what they’re saying by calling the president’s people henchmen. Some could say that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you,” King advised.

Former Republican Texas Rep. and three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul appeared to suffer a medical issue during a live interview Friday.

Paul, a leader of the Libertarian movement, was in the middle of his live-streamed “Ron Paul Liberty Report” — the video has since been made private — when the left side of his face appeared to droop and his speech became garbled and unintelligible.

The response on Twitter was almost immediate as people called for prayers and well-wishes for the 85-year-old politician.

Fox News congressional reporter Chad Pergram tweeted an update, saying that Paul had been hospitalized following the incident for “precautionary” reasons.

Hong Kong police have rejected an application to hold a pro-democracy march on China’s National Day next Thursday, citing coronavirus public gathering restrictions and the threat of “violent acts.”

The Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) – a coalition of advocacy groups – proposed to march from East Point Road in Causeway Bay to Chater Road in Central on October 1, coinciding with the Mid-Autumn Festival. The force issued the letter of objection on Friday.

Police said public gatherings of more than four people were not allowed under current government coronavirus social distancing rules, set to expire next Friday.

The force said it had reason to believe the march would increase the risk of contracting the virus among participants: “It will also be a major threat to the life and health of the general public, endangering public health and the rights of others,” the letter of objection read.

It also mentioned past events organised by the CHRF that descended into violence, as some protesters blocked roads and hurled bricks as well as petrol bombs.

The force said the proposed route was close to “high-risk buildings,” including the police headquarters, the High Court and various MTR stations.

President Vladimir Putin called on Friday for an agreement between Russia and the United States to guarantee not to engage in cyber-meddling in each other’s elections.

In a statement ahead of the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3, Putin called for a reset between Russia and the United States and said he wanted an agreement between the two countries to prevent incidents in cyberspace.

“(I propose)… exchanging guarantees of non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, including electoral processes, including using information and communication technologies and high-tech methods,” he said.

Moscow’s relations with Washington are at post-Cold War lows as the election looms.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election with the aim of tilting it in Donald Trump’s favour, including by hacking into the campaign of his rival Hillary Clinton. Moscow denies that charge.

Trump is currently campaigning for re-election against Democrat Joe Biden.

“One of the main strategic challenges of our time is the risk of a large-scale confrontation in the digital sphere,” Putin said in the Kremlin statement.

“We would like to once again appeal to the United States with a proposal to approve a comprehensive program of practical measures to reset our relations in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT).”

He proposed the two countries reach an agreement to prevent major cyberspace incidents, something he compared to a 1972 U.S.-Soviet treaty reached at the height of the Cold War to prevent incidents at sea and in the air from escalating.

Australia (AP) — China appears to be expanding its network of secret detention centers in Xinjiang, where predominantly Muslim minorities are targeted in a forced assimilation campaign, and more of the facilities resemble prisons, an Australian think tank has found.

The Australian Strategic Policy Institute used satellite images and official construction tender documents to map more than 380 suspected detention facilities in the far northwestern region, highlighting internment camps, detention centers and prisons that have been newly built or expanded since 2017.

The report builds on evidence that China has made a policy shift from detaining Uighurs and other largely Muslim minorities in makeshift public buildings to constructing permanent mass detention facilities.

This is despite Chinese state news agency Xinhua reporting late last year that “trainees” attending “vocational education and training centers” meant to deradicalize them had “all graduated.”

Regional government chairman Shohrat Zakir was quoted as saying that foreign media reports of 1 million or 2 million people attending these centers were fabricated, though he would not provide any figures.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on Friday dismissed the report as “pure disinformation and slander,” saying the Australian institute had “no academic credibility.” China does not operate “so-called detention camps” in Xinjiang, Wang told reporters at a daily briefing.

Citing media reports and investigations by internet users, Wang said one of the sites in the report had been identified as an electronics manufacturing park and another as a five-star residential complex.

>>“So we also hope that all sectors can distinguish truth from falsehood and together resist such absurd assertions concocted by anti-China institutions,” Wang said.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

PARIS (AP) — At least two people were wounded in a knife attack Friday near the former offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, police said Friday. A suspect has been arrested.

A Paris police official said that while authorities initially thought two attackers were involved, they now believe it was only one person, who was detained near the Bastille plaza in eastern Paris, a city police official said. The official said police are still searching the area while they question the arrested suspect.

>>Police initially announced that four people were wounded in the attack, but the official told The Associated Press that there are in fact only two confirmed wounded. Police could not explain the discrepancies.

It is unclear what motivated the attack Friday or whether it had any link to Charlie Hebdo, which moved offices after they were attacked by Islamic extremists in 2015, who killed 12 people inside.

AP reporters at the scene of Friday’s police operation saw officers flooding into the neighborhood, near the Richard Lenoir subway station. Police cordoned off the area including the former Charlie Hebdo offices after a suspect package was noticed nearby, according the police official.

>>Police did not release the identities of the attacker or the wounded, who are in “absolutely urgent” condition, the official said. The official was not authorized to be publicly named.

Prime Minister Jean Castex cut short a visit to a suburb north of Paris to head to the Interior Ministry to follow developments.

In particular, she emphasized the variety of options for voters casting their ballots this year — and added that she hoped to fight for easier voting requirements in the future.

Obama also talked at length about how her family was handling the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to family time, Obama, 56, also said Barack has spent the majority of his time in quarantine finishing his book, which is set to be published sometime after the election.

At one point, Conan asked if the former President would be interested in pursuing a Netflix comedy special — referring to his remarks at the 2013 White House Correspondents dinner as proof that he was capable of putting on a show.

US Attorney John Durham is expanding his probe into the origins of the Russia investigation and turning his sights on the Clinton Foundation, according to a report on Thursday.

Durham, who was named by Attorney General William Barr to investigate “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s operation to examine any ties between the Russians and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, will incorporate US Attorney John Huber’s examination of the foundation into his review, Fox News reported.

Huber was directed by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November 2017 to evaluate “certain issues” involving the sale of Uranium One and other dealings connected to the Clinton Foundation, the charity operated by Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Sessions tapped Huber at the request of Republicans in Congress.

Huber, the US attorney for Utah, had also been looking into the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and allegations that the agency did not follow “policies and procedures.”

The progress of Huber’s investigation has come under scrutiny from the Justice Department and the White House, Fox News reported.

>>“There are folks that are aware of the fact that Huber has not done much, and there has been criticism at the Justice Department and the White House,” a source told Fox News. “Folks that have been concerned about what he did or didn’t do, and many of them feel that Huber did not dig deep enough or work hard enough.”

The New York Times first reported on Thursday that Durham has sought documents and interviews about how federal law enforcement officials conducted an investigation into allegations of political corruption at the foundation.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United States butted heads with China and Russia at the United Nations on Thursday over responsibility for the pandemic that has interrupted the world, trading allegations about who mishandled and politicized the virus in one of the few real-time exchanges among top officials at this year’s COVID-distanced U.N. General Assembly meeting.

The remarks at the U.N. Security Council’s ministerial meeting on the assembly’s sidelines came just after U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres decried the lack of international cooperation in tackling the still “out-of-control” coronavirus.

The sharp exchanges, at the end of a virtual meeting on “Post COVID-19 Global Governance,” reflected the deep divisions among the three veto-wielding council members that have escalated since the virus first emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in January. They also crackled with an energy and action that the prerecorded set pieces of leader speeches at the virtual meeting have thus far lacked.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, speaking first, stressed the importance of U.N.-centered multilateralism and alluded to countries — including the U.S. — opting out of making a COVID-19 vaccine a global public good available to people everywhere.

>>“In such a challenging moment, major countries are even more duty-bound to put the future of humankind first, discard Cold War mentality and ideological bias and come together in the spirit of partnership to tide over the difficulties,” Wang said.

And in a jab at U.S. and European Union sanctions including on Russia, Syria and others, he said: “Unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction needs to be opposed in order to safeguard the authority and sanctity of international law.”

Protesters in Portland hurled several firebombs at officers in Oregon’s largest city during a demonstration over a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to not indict officers in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor, police said, escalating tensions in a city that’s already seen nearly four months of nightly protests over racial injustice and police brutality.

Deputy Police Chief Chris Davis said Wednesday night’s demonstrations were the most violent that Portland has seen thus far in four months of nearly nightly unrest since the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in Minnesota after a white officer held a knee to his neck. Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt — who has been criticized for dismissing cases against hundreds of protesters — condemned the violence and called for calm.

Thirteen people were arrested during the demonstration.

U.S. agents with the Federal Protective Service, who were guarding a federal courthouse nearby, offered assistance and the Portland police accepted because it was an “emergency need in the moment,” Davis said at a news conference Thursday.

>>“I can’t say that just because last night was exceptionally violent that that’s the beginning of a trend” he said. “I certainly hope not.”

He added, “We’re at the mercy of people who show up … and what they intend to do.”

No tear gas was used by local or federal law enforcement, Davis said.

Schmidt, the newly elected prosecutor who made waves this summer by deciding not to prosecute protesters arrested for lower-level, non-violent crimes, said a peaceful protest intended to honour Taylor was sabotaged by violence.

A second night of anti-racism protests got off to a tense but mostly peaceful start in Louisville, Kentucky, on Thursday, a day after a grand jury decided not to bring homicide charges against police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor.

As a curfew went into effect after dark and police declared an unlawful assembly, a group of 200 to 300 protesters who had marched through the city for hours retreated to the grounds of the First Unitarian Church, set aside by organizers as a sanctuary near the Ohio River waterfront.

Some of the marchers had smashed windows of several local businesses, and even a hospital, along the way, according to a Reuters journalist. But the scene outside the church contrasted sharply with violence that flared the previous night in Kentucky’s largest city.

Angry demonstrations and sporadic clashes between police and protesters in the hours following the grand jury announcement turned bloody late on Wednesday when two police officers on crowd-control duty were shot and wounded.

A suspect was arrested a short time later, and Louisville police chief Robert Schroeder said on Thursday that the two wounded officers were expected to recover.

Schroeder, his department reinforced by state police and Kentucky National Guard troops, said he expected protests to continue for days, and a nighttime curfew was extended through the weekend.

>>“For all of us it is a very tense and emotional time,” Schroeder told a news conference on Thursday. Police said 127 arrests were made in the first night of protests, most for curfew violations or disobeying orders to disperse.
