TERRELL: Trump ‘did not order those individuals to go down there and destroy the Capitol’

“All President Trump did, and he has the First Amendment right, you can shake your head all you want, is to express his disappointment.”

In a heated discussion with Geraldo Rivera on Bill Hemmer Reports, Leo Terrell discussed the violence that took place at the Capitol on Wednesday, urging that President Trump is not to blame.

“How dare you, Geraldo? I mean, that sounds like democratic talking points. Bill, I heard you talk to Debbie Dingell. All Donald Trump said yesterday was ‘go down to the Capitol building,’” he said. “And then you heard Debbie Dingell talking about….I listened to the democratic Kool-Aid. You heard Joe Biden today, Muriel Bowser. They are using this for democratic talking points,” he added. 

“All President Trump did, and he has the First Amendment right, you can shake your head all you want, is to express his disappointment. He did not order those individuals to go down there and destroy the Capitol,” he said. 

While law enforcement agencies dive into an investigation, Terrell urged that the criminals involved should indeed be prosecuted.  

“There were criminals who invaded the Capitol building and they should be prosecuted,” he said, “but the democrats sat on their hands during the summer when rioters destroyed democratic cities. In Seattle, the summer of love.”

Terrell blasted Joe Biden for “playing the race card” during his national address Thursday. 

“And one last point. For Joe Biden to play the race card today saying that there would have been a different treatment for black protestors,” he said. “Those are criminals. Criminals should be treated one way.” 

While President Trump is being accused of encouraging the violence, Terrell said that expressing disappointment is “perfectly okay.” 

“It never came out of Donald Trump’s mouth,” he said. “If I say go down to the Capitol building and express your disappointment, that’s perfectly okay.”

Terrell reiterated that those who stepped inside the Capitol and destroyed property are criminals, but that Donald Trump did not recommend anyone to do so. 

“Come on now, I’m a lawyer for 30 years. If you go down and say ‘go down to the Capitol building and express your disappointment, that is not a criminal act and you know that, Geraldo, and the nation knows that. What those people did, go inside the building, damage the property, that is criminal activity. Donald Trump never recommended, suggested or told those people to go in and break and enter the Capitol building.” 

“This is unbelievable,” he said. “You’re putting the responsibility of hundreds of thousands of people on the shoulders of Donald Trump because he disagrees with the process.” 

Terrell also called out D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser for failing to prosecute Black Lives Matter during the summer, then attacking the president. 

“Muriel Bowser, last year she opened the door to Black Lives Matter and let them destroy the city without prosecution and she comes on with talking points again, attacking the president, blaming him for what happened yesterday,” he said. 

“Donald Trump did not cause that.”

    Thank you, Leo, for standing up for the president! You are one of the few that hasn’t turned your back on him. Geraldo uses Leftard talking points because he IS a Leftard. With friends like Geraldo, Pence, Barr & all those who promised Trump that they’d vote to oppose the electors, such as Marsha Blackburn, the newly sworn in Bill Hagerty (both are my TN senators), Kelly Loeffler (all of whom Trump campaigned for & endorsed) & many others, the president certainly doesn’t need enemies!

Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
