80 Looters in Ski Masks with Weapons Ransacked San Fran Nordstrom; Police Warn More Attacks Coming

Unfortunately, there is indication that more chaos could come

A horrifying scene occurred at a Nordstrom retail store just outside of San Francisco Saturday night. As much as 80 looters “swarmed into the Nordstrom store in downtown Walnut Creek Saturday night, terrorizing shoppers, assaulting employees, ripping off bag loads of merchandise and ransacking shelves before fleeing in several vehicles waiting for them on the street” reports CBS San Francisco.

Unfortunately, there is indication that more chaos could come. The Walnut Creek police said in a community advisory posted around 3:30 pm on Sunday to social media, that they are “actively monitoring intelligence that indicates the group of thieves who stole from the Broadway Plaza Nordstrom last night are considering similar activity later today.”

In a Sunday morning news release, authorities said “Walnut Creek police investigators are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage to attempt to identify other suspects responsible for this brazen act.”

One of the managers at the P.F. Chang’s restaurant across from the store described the lawlessness: “I probably saw 50-80 people in like ski masks with crowbars, a bunch of weapons…they were looting the Nordstrom.”

“There was a mob of people…police were flying in. It was like a scene out of a movie. It was insane…I had to start locking the front door…Locking the back door….it was crazy…all the guests inside were getting concerned. It was a scary scene for a moment.”

Three suspects have been arrested. One 18-year-old Oakland man and two people from San Francisco, ages 30 and 32. Police seized a gun from one of the suspects. The male was charged with robbery, possession of stolen property, conspiracy to commit burglary and possession of burglary tools. The female was arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm.”

“Stolen property from the looting and a firearm was recovered from their vehicle” reported the local CBS station.

    Nordstrom’s or any other vendor can hire private armed security and employ deadly force. Let the bedwetters whine until their property and livelihoods are threatened.

    Their insurance companies should stop paying for these incidents until the police and/or the Governor pull up their big boy pants and do something about these pos people who do this bc they can, with such little regard for other people. Sorry can’t feel sorry for California, they need to get rid of Pelosi, Waters and Newsome, a waste of space and air.

    I agree I think private entities will be hired to protect the stores in the store fronts. If there will be new classes licenses and certifications for this process. A well armed militia will have to be documented that’s what this is all about.

    When you do not have law and order, this is what is going to happen. Here on the east coast, they do not have to do this, they can take anything they want. No security is needed because they can take what they want.

National Gas Prices Could Hit $6.20 Per Gallon By August

Gas Prices

National gas prices could surge to well over $6 per gallon by the end of the summer, according to analysts at JPMorgan.

Natasha Kaneva, head of global oil and commodities research at JPMorgan, wrote in a research document that the United States was going to face a “cruel summer” as gas prices are expected to dwarf their already record highs.

“With expectations of strong driving demand — traditionally, the U.S. summer driving season starts on Memorial Day, which lands this year on May 30, and lasts until Labor Day in early September — U.S. retail price could surge another 37% by August to a $6.20/gallon national average,” she wrote.

“Typically, refiners produce more gasoline ahead of the summer road-trip season, building up inventories,” the analysts said. However, over the last month, “gasoline inventories have fallen counter seasonally and today sit at the lowest seasonal levels since 2019.”

The report comes the same week that the United States set a new record for gas prices with the average cost per gallon rising over $4 per gallon in all 50 states for the first time ever, according to a report from the American Automobile Association (AAA).

“The high cost of oil, the key ingredient in gasoline, is driving these high pump prices for consumers,” said AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross. “Even the annual seasonal demand dip for gasoline during the lull between spring break and Memorial Day, which would normally help lower prices, is having no effect this year.”

As explained in the report, “total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by 3.6 million bbl to 225 million bbl last week. Gasoline demand also decreased slightly from 8.86 million b/d to 8.7 million b/d. Typically, lower demand would put downward pressure on pump prices. However, crude prices remain volatile, and as they surge, pump prices follow suit. Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil prices stay above $105 per barrel.”

Pro-Abortion Extremists Threaten To Burn Down Supreme Court, Murder Justices, DHS Memo Reveals

Published

on

Pro-abortion extremists are reportedly threatening to burn down the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks following the leak of a draft of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion intending to overturn Roe v. Wade.

According to a May 13 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo obtained by Axios, the “U.S. government is bracing for a potential surge in political violence once the Supreme Court hands down the ruling that’s expected to overturn Roe v. Wade… Law enforcement agencies are investigating social-media threats to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks, as well as attacks targeting places of worship and abortion clinics.”

The memo says the threats “are likely to persist and may increase leading up to and following the issuing of the Court’s official ruling.”

However, the memo notes that the “mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of strong rhetoric, or generalized philosophic embrace of violent tactics does not constitute domestic violent extremism or illegal activity and is constitutionally protected.”

A DHS spokesperson told Axios that the department “is committed to protecting Americans’ freedom of speech and other civil rights and civil liberties, including the right to peacefully protest.”

“[The] DHS is also committed to working with our partners across every level of government and the private sector to share timely information and intelligence, prevent all forms of violence, and to support law enforcement efforts to keep our communities safe,” the spokesperson added.

Earlier this month, a draft of a Supreme Court’s majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

In the draft, Justice Samuel Alito writes that “Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito added. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and de
