Chris Coumo Loses It After Being Called “Fredo” And Says It’s Like Using The “N” Word

Westlake Legal Group DonLemonChrisCuomo1-300x172 Chris Coumo Loses It After Being Called “Fredo” And Says It’s Like Using The “N” Word washington D.C. Social Media New York Post Morning Briefing Media journalism Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Fredo Featured Story Featured Post democrats Conservatives CNN Chris Cuomo Allow Media Exception 2019

CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo spar – 6/18/19. Screen grab via CNN.

“What You Talking About Fredo?”

“Let’s Get After It” indeed Fredo.

We always love to have fun with the fine folks over at CNN and the unique way that they report things and or spin the news during the day. In fact, I watch CNN more often than any other news channel being I enjoy picking through what they are doing. I find it relaxing.

The two partisan hacks that I love to follow the most are Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and Don Lemon. They both parade as journalists but are just progressive spinsters that are not particularly interested in the facts, just spin for their world view. When it came to which one would snap publicly though, I always thought it would be Don Lemon. I was wrong, and my apologies to the family of Fredo Cuomo.

In a HILARIOUS video posted late Monday night of our hero CNN anchor of Italian heritage, shows him losing his #$%^ over being called Fredo by some people who must be right-wing provocateurs. According to Fredo Cuomo’s hometown paper the New York Post

A man sent cable news host Chris Cuomo into a flying rage when he called the anchor “Fredo” — an apparent insult referencing Fredo Corleone, the ineffective son of Vito Corleone in “The Godfather.”

“Punk ass bitches from the right call me ‘Fredo.’ My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN,” the newsman says in the video, which was shared on Twitter Monday evening.

“Fredo is from the ‘Godfather,’ he was a weak brother and the use of it to an Italian is disparaging,” he continues.

The 49-year-old anchor tells the man that the name “Fredo” is as offensive to Italian Americans as the n-word is to African Americans.

“Don’t f–ing insult me like that,” the Queens native fumes. “You call me ‘Fredo’ it’s like I call you punk b–ch, you like that?”

Fredo is taking this LETS GET AFTER IT slogan literally.

Now lets ACTUALLY do something that Chris and Don seem incapable of doing on their shows…breaking something down logically.

Everyone has a bad day. Chris “Fredo” Cuomo maybe was tired from a long weekend running around with the family or possibly he had been told his show had been once again beaten by reruns on the Disney Channel. So I’m going to give him some slack for someone getting on his last nerve.

However, getting pissed off because someone called you Fredo!?!?! You are NOT serious. Also saying that this is comparable to using the “N” word for African Americans is laughable. I’m sure Don Lemon even choked back his latte after hearing that.

You are getting paid millions of dollars a year to spew B.S., your family is taken care of and you decide that being called “Fredo” is the absolute worst thing you could be called on a Sunday afternoon? Chris, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself. You should be more concerned about being called a hack journalist that has ridden his Dad’s coattails to a cushy job than being called the name of a fictional character.

One last thing.

Everyone knows that you never threaten to throw someone down the stairs, you just do it if you really think it is warranted. These talking heads on T.V. really need to do a better job of being threatening. I would have started to crack up had he said that to me all the while just watching him struggle to think of the next line to come up with. When you don’t have a teleprompter it is hard to go it alone with words. Fredo does not make a very intimidating T.V. tough guy just like he wasn’t in the movies.

I don’t want CNN to fire him but they should damn well suspend him. From the looks of the CNN statement, they won’t do anything via this garbage press release…

A CNN spokesperson told The Post: “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

You do not threaten to bust someone up for being called Fredo Corleone. If you do, you should get suspended and move on. I get people having a bad day but you are representing a corporation and threatening to wipe out some dude for calling you a name. That is just silly.

In the meantime, if your brother the Governor of New York asks you to go for a boat ride fishing, you might want to skip out on that. We would not Fredo history repeating itself now would we?

The Past Week Proves That It’s More Than ‘Just Gaffes’ For Biden

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Biden The Past Week Proves That It’s More Than ‘Just Gaffes’ For Biden Politics Joe Biden's age Joe Biden gaffe's Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception 2020

When voters are asked which Democratic presidential hopeful has the best chance of defeating President Trump, Joe Biden consistently crushes the competition.

He is seen as the most electable of them all, not for any particular achievements or attributes, but essentially because he is the “least bad” candidate among the largely unimpressive field.

The former vice president has always been known to be gaffe prone, but his blunders over the last week   went well beyond gaffe territory and have left some voters wondering if he has become “too old” to serve.

I consider his remark that “poor kids are just as bright as white kids” to be a gaffe. He would have said something like that ten years ago, even 30 years ago. However, when Biden gave an account of the Parkland survivors visit to the White House, an event which took place in February 2018, it became something else entirely.

Speaking at a gun control forum on Saturday in Des Moines, IA, he told supporters, “I met with them and then they went off up on the Hill when I was vice president.” Later on, he said, “Those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president,” and then spoke about members of Congress ducking meetings with the students.

The following day, Team Biden’s deputy campaign manager and communications director, Kate Bedingfield, tried her best to mitigate the damage her boss had done. She tweeted, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a president who consoles Americans in their time of need so often that he sometimes mistakes the timing? But even more so, wouldn’t it be nice to have a president who actually fights to prevent these tragedies?”

Nice try Kate.

If his Parkland comments had been an isolated moment, this wouldn’t be an issue.

But these instances keep piling up. From the moment Biden launched his campaign, questions began to swirl about his ability to endure an 18-month campaign. Below is a clip from his kickoff rally speech.

Earlier this spring, President Trump said Joe Biden is not the political athlete he once was.

(The relevant portion begins at 1:50 in the video.)

We all age at different rates, and while many people retain their cognitive abilities well into their 90s, others begin to lose their sharpness earlier.

A headline over the weekend in The Wall Street Journal read, “The latest missteps by Democratic presidential front-runner give some party activists anxiety over whether he still has the stuff.”

And Democrats need to give some serious thought to this. Biden will turn 77 in November. And should he win the presidency, he would take office at the age of 78. He mental acuity would be farther along by another year and a half.

Biden’s performance in the first debate was dismal. He was shredded by Kamala Harris. He appeared weak and people noticed.

Ocasio-Cortez told The New Yorker that Biden’s performance raised questions about his cognitive abilities.

And she was far from alone.

Biden recovered somewhat in the second debate, but his recent week of wall-to-wall gaffes have Democrats concerned.

The New York Times reported that, “Recent interviews with more than 50 Democratic voters and party officials across four states, as well as with political strategists and some of Mr. Biden’s own donors, showed significant unease about Mr. Biden’s ability to be a reliably crisp and effective messenger against Mr. Trump.”

Until Biden announced his candidacy in April, he had been largely out of the public eye since he left office. The difference between then and now is striking. He looks old. He moves old. He acts old.

Maybe he’s no longer the Democrats’ best hope to defeat President Trump.

Joe Scarborough Sees Russian Influence in the Epstein Suicide

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Scarborough-e1438345122486-620x408 Joe Scarborough Sees Russian Influence in the Epstein Suicide Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

Joe Scarborough has a fever and the only cure is more Russia hoax.

Saturday, accused sex trafficker and pedophile (technically ephebophile because I don’t want the real pedophiles in the Democrat party to get angry at me) was found a victim of Arkan-cide (and this is a joke, I shouldn’t have to underline it but I will) hanged in his cell at the federal lockup in New York City.

In short order, you see these tweets by various leftwing idiots

(Yo, Ron, dude, you can take off the make-up, they stopped filming Beauty and the Beast years ago.)

And this from the outer space

You expect it from these morons because that’s what they do. They are simply saying whatever they need to say to excite the crotches of their fan base. And that is a pretty low bar to cross.

But then you get this:

Westlake Legal Group scarborough-620x446 Joe Scarborough Sees Russian Influence in the Epstein Suicide Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

On the one hand, one shouldn’t be surprised. Scarborough is a man who has repeatedly demonstrated that he has questionable honor or integrity. He abandoned his family for a mistress…at least once. He shamelessly sucked up to Donald Trump to the extent of rehearsing interview questions with him and even partied with the Trump campaign after Trump’s New Hampshire victory. Then, in a sudden volte face, he peddles every conceivable conspiracy theory involving Trump and Russia for nearly three years. Scarborough tried to keep the fraudulent dossier and the equally fraudulent Mueller investigation afloat long after both were obviously self destructing.

But, on the other hand, it is sort of amazing that someone who fancies himself a journalist of one stripe or another would further degrade himself by essentially starting his own conspiracy theory…naturally centered on Russia. In fact, his own vestigial conscience apparently kicked in as he has since deleted the tweet. This part of the equation is most puzzling because Scarborough, himself, was subject of all manner of conspiracy theories after an intern was found dead in his office. You’d think he’s at least be sympathetic to the idea of not making baseless accusations of complicity in murder having had them made against him.

When he was called to account even by some of the worst names in the business…imagine having tentacle-porn connoisseur Kurt Eichenwald question your judgment…he tried to play it off as a “glib” tweet.

Here’s the guy who doxxes meme makers for a living

Even Qatar was offended…or maybe Wikileaks

Scarborough, of course, is welcome to sling whatever bullsh** he thinks will keep his audience amused and those paychecks coming in, after all, alimony and child support can’t be all that cheap. What is sort of stunning is that no one at MSNBC even cares.

“Slippery Slope”: Steve Scalise Warns of the Dangers of Blaming Politicians for the Actions of Mass Shooters

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA-1) speaks on “Face the Nation” – 8/11/19. Screen grab via CBS News.

In the immediate aftermath of the horrific mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH earlier this month that left 32 dead and dozens more injured, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA-1) issued a statement condeming the attacks as well as the political bickering that ensued shortly thereafter.

Scalise wrote, in part:

“In a media culture that encourages viewing people solely through hyper-partisan lenses, and not as neighbors and fellow citizens, dangerous division and hatred of those you disagree with is the outcome. This can often lead to violent consequences, as I have personally experienced.

These events are tragedies. Reducing them to talking points and name-calling in support of narrow political agendas only further divides our country.”

The following week, Scalise drew on his experience as a victim of politically-motivated violence when answering questions on whether or not full or partial blame for mass shootings should be assigned to politicians and their rhetoric in an interview he did yesterday on CBS News‘s “Face the Nation” program:

“To try to assign blame to somebody else is a very slippery slope because the president is no more responsible for that shooting as your next guest Bernie Sanders is for my shooting,” Scalise said on “Face the Nation”:

The Louisiana Republican was referring to the massacre in an El Paso Walmart last Saturday and a shooting in 2017 in which a gunman — who authorities later surmised was fueled by “rage against Republican legislators”* — critically wounded Scalise and others while they were practicing for a congressional baseball game.

*Note: CBS News did not note that the perpetrator of Scalise’s attack was a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

During the interview, Scalise also slammed Democratic presidential candidates who were pinning the blame directly on President Trump for what happened in El Paso:

“I know they’re running for president and they might not like Donald Trump’s views but stop this ridiculous assessment of blame to somebody other than the person who’s responsible,” he said.

Pressed again about Mr. Trump’s use of words like “invasion” when referring to migrants, Scalise demurred, noting that the president denounced racism and white supremacy during a White House address last week. He reiterated that all the blame lays with the shooters.

“Let’s try to identify these shooters in a better way which right now we’re working on doing let’s put more emphasis there,” Scalise said.

Watch the the segment below:

You can read the full transcript of his interview here.

The House Minority Whip was not asked to expand on his thoughts regarding his Congressional colleague Rep. Joaquin Castro’s (D-TX-20) doxxing of 44 Trump donors from his Congressional district last week, which Scalise condemned on Twitter the day after Castro published the information.

“People should not be personally targeted for their political views. Period. This isn’t a game. It’s dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand,” Scalise tweeted at the time.

Beto’s Latest Presidential Move – By Way of Video – is Absolutely Hilarious & Enormously Pitiful

Westlake Legal Group sport-play-repair-red-vehicle-drive-833827-pxhere.com_-620x412 Beto’s Latest Presidential Move – By Way of Video – is Absolutely Hilarious & Enormously Pitiful Uncategorized Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats Beto O'Rourke Allow Media Exception aaa 2020

 

 

Beto O’Rourke seems intent upon making the biggest goofball possible of himself.

Among other ridiculousness, he’s promised to fight against privileged wealth — as he backstrokes in his own, from inheritance and nuptials (here).

When a politician promises to wage war against the wealthy, that sounds to me as if he’s/she’s focused on American failure rather than success. Or, at least, that they’re trying to win the poor’s vote by making them covetous. Still, I’ll listen to every single word they have to say — so long as they first give away 100% of their net worth, minus that of the average American.

Otherwise, they’re full of it.

Given his rhetoric, Beto’s several millions of dollars away from me pencilling him in.

Wanna see what marrying into a half-billion dollar family and trying to pretend otherwise looks like? Wanna watch someone try to gain the White House as something they’re not, rather than who they really are?

This may be his goofiest move yet.

On Monday, the a**-waxing, ball-scrubbing poet posted a video:

Hey — that dude must be an Ultimate Everyman!

He must be just like me! Welp, that settles it — he’s got my vote.

All he has to do now is put all his cash in the back of that truck and whistle and wait.

It should be empty by sundown.

In the meantime…

GYAH.

Hey, Beto, millionaires don’t have to change tires. I know a guy who delivers sandwiches for a living, and even he has AAA. You can certainly be rich and do your own work; but c’mon, dude. A video of it?? Why?

Witness the Twitter:

He certainly does look really, really together and not at all sweaty to be changing a giant tire in August in Texas.

Geez.

I anxiously await your comments.

Cities Allow Drivers to Pay Parking Tickets With School Supplies

Paying off your parking tickets by paying it forward is one of my favorite ideas. Like when Muncie, Indiana let people donate food and supplies for shelter kitties instead of paying in cash. Now that it’s back to school time, quite a few cities are letting people pay off their tickets by donating school supplies to local kids in need.

In Tuscaloosa, Alabama every $10 in school supplies will pay off $15 in parking tickets through the end of the month, WTVY reports. Tuscaloosa mayor Walt Maddox said:

This is a good way to pay your . parking tickets and, at the same time, give back to your community, give back to a child in a way you have never imagined.

Donations can be dropped off at the Tuscaloosa Municipal Courthouse through the end of August. Starting in September, you’ll have to pay up again.

Anyone issued a parking ticket between August 9 and August 21 in Columbia, South Carolina can take advantage of “Donations for Citations.” WIS News reports that donations must be equal in value to the amount of the citation and will go directly to students in the Midlands.

"Donations for Citations” has passed Columbia City Council and parking tickets issued today through 8/21 will be…

Posted by Main Street District – Columbia, SC on Wednesday, August 7, 2019

Spencer, West Virginia is offering a similar program for tickets issued on or before August 9. One item from a list of the most-needed school supplies will cancel one parking ticket.

Do you have unpaid parking tickets? Mayor Williams and Spencer City Council would like to offer you the opportunity to…

Posted by City Of Spencer, West Virginia on Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Two city council members in Sioux Falls, South Dakota have proposed to do the same in their city to benefit the Banquet school supply program. KDLT reports that the Banquet program was originally supported by K-Mart and ShopCo but, with those stores having left the area, this might be a great way to get kids what they need. City Council Member Theresa Stehly said:

It’s a very timely issue because it’s right before school starts and this is when (the Banquet is) collecting these school supplies for children. My understanding from the Banquet is there is a huge need for children who can’t afford to buy these school supplies.

City council will vote on the resolution on Tuesday.

On the First Day of School, 7th Grade Calif. Teacher Hands Out Gender Unicorn Flyers, Tells Kids He’s ‘Mx’ Not ‘Mr’

Westlake Legal Group hand-purple-kid-horse-child-pink-722933-pxhere.com_-620x413 On the First Day of School, 7th Grade Calif. Teacher Hands Out Gender Unicorn Flyers, Tells Kids He’s ‘Mx’ Not ‘Mr’ Uncategorized trans student education resources the modesto bee terry metzger Modesto LGBT Gender Issues Front Page Stories Featured Story Education denair middle school California amanda silva Allow Media Exception Academia

 

 

In Northern California, some 7th graders got an extra bit of instruction on the first day of school.

Denair Middle School teacher Luis Davila Alvarado gave the ready-to-learn boys and girls a gender-identity graphic.

The point? To explain his request to be called “Mx” instead of “Mr.”

How do you even pronounce that?

Here’s what he gave ’em:

The “Gender Unicorn” flyer came from Trans Student Education Resources.

It triggered some parents, which prompted a statement from Denair Unified School District Superintendent Terry Metzger to The Modesto Bee:

“He gave a handout discussing gender in first and second periods. It was not an assignment, and students were not required or asked to fill it out.”

The second-year 7th and 8th grade science teacher hadn’t asked permission from the school to distribute the info, and upon discovering it, Principal Amanda Silva asked him to stop.

According to Terry, Amanda estimated around 50 students received the handout.

However, 7th-12 graders already get taught about gender identity — as required by law. It’s part of California’s Health curriculum.

One mom wrote on social media of the distribution, “I don’t care what you identify as, that’s your decision. But NO ONE has the right to ask my child these questions that have absolutely nothing to do with what you are teaching in a classroom.”

Furthermore:

“The teacher said that because he was transgender and the kids had lots of questions, he thought this would be beneficial to them. Which is the most bulls*** excuse I’ve ever heard.”

And there was this from a mother on Facebook:

“Let’s say the kids are confused about what to call him/her. How in hell does this … clear up any confusion about him/her?!?! What a crock of s***!”

A grandmother told local Fox40, “I’ve talked to a lot of parents and a lot of grandparents and I know a lot of them have called the school and complained about it.”

Superintended Terry assured the Bee only a handful of parents were mad.



Principal Amanda was in the classroom when it was handed out the second time. She admitted to Fox that it “was probably the wrong tool” to teach kids about gender identity, because it “looked like it needed to be filled out.”

“It was probably not appropriate, just in the way that the handout looked,” she explained.

Barr Serious About Epstein Death Investigation, Says No One ‘Complicit’ In Epstein’s Crimes Will Escape Punishment

Attorney General William Barr said Monday the Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking case was “very important” to him personally, as well as to the victims who had the courage to come forward.

Speaking before a Fraternal Order of Police Convention in New Orleans, Barr spoke strongly about the case, saying he was appalled to learn Epstein had been left to commit suicide while in federal lockup.

“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation.

“The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened, and there will be accountability.”

“[L]et me assure you that this case will continue on, against anyone who was complicit with Epstein,” Barr said.

“Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and they will get it.”

These statements come on the heels of the DOJ announcing Sunday following Epstein’s suicide that they would still be pursuing their case but were shifting their focus to the accomplices and friends of Epstein who may have known about or abetted his criminal activities.

Epstein had been linked to some of the most powerful men in the world including Britain’s Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton.

There is literally zero doubt that the Founding Fathers visualized an armed citizenry as a bulwark against government overreach and tyranny. The fear of an overpowering central government supported by a standing army was very, very real to the Founders. Within the lives of their grandfathers, they had seen Oliver Cromwell convert his victorious New Model Army into an instrument of political and social oppression during his Protectorate, particularly the Rule of the Major Generals. They were well aware of the biennial Mutiny Acts which forbade the British army from owning its own transport, using certain roads, and from entering chartered cities without approval of the city government.

History aside, the gun-grabbers, since the Heller decision recognized the Second Amendment as the individual right that it is rather than some kind of bastardized group right, have been struggling to come up with an excuse to undercut the right to bear arms that will fit within the law of the land. What they have turned to is the argument that the Second Amendment is archaic. That, yeah, it might have once been true that a citizen militia could defeat a well-equipped and well-trained military but that is no longer the case. The Booker-esque loser from California, Eric Swalwell once addressed the issue of an armed citizenry being a brake on a tyrannical government this way:

That’s right, Swalwell actually said that if the citizens got too frisky they would be nuked by their own government. Since that time, this argument has been a staple among the left on Twitter. It was trotted out again by Joe Biden this past weekend:

“Folks, don’t apologize at all about the Second Amendment,” Biden advised, explaining how the amendment allows for limitations on who can own a weapon and what type. “These guys will tell you, the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots. Give me a break.”

“Can you go out and buy a flamethrower? Can you go out and buy an F-15?” he added. “If you want to protect yourself against the federal government, you’re going to need at least an F-15.”

Well, actually you can buy a flamethrower.

What is rather unique about Biden’s statement is that he’s clearly dismissive of the origins of the Second Amendment. He seems blithely unaware of the unhappy fate of armies confronted with widespread resistance and he also seems cheerfully eager to use force to confiscate weapons.

With great regularity, technologically superior armies who lacked political will have been laid low by smaller and more inferior armies because the larger army lacked the will. One prime example is the Irish War of Independence. Other examples more painfully close to home in time are Vietnam and Afghanistan. The very fact that a popular revolt MIGHT happen often encourages an out-of-control government to act responsibly…here I’m thinking of the various run-ins the Bundys of Nevada have had with the feds over the years. The tack taken by Biden and Swalwell also assumes that the Armed Forces would actually participate in an effort to confiscate firearms or that they would turn their firepower on their fellow citizens. My belief is that any situation that required the military to take arms against millions of their countrymen would soon find the military voting “present” if not actively defecting and collaborating.

All that aside, Biden’s logic simply doesn’t exist. The presence of a large mass of armed citizens in the “unorganized militia of the United States” [see 10 U.S. Code § 246. Militia: composition and classes] is both a safety net in the case of insurrection or invasion and a safeguard of the Constitution in the face of an oppressive federal or state government. There is no requirement that a regular force be met weapon system for weapon system, for, as they say, it isn’t the size of the dog in the fight, it is size of the fight in the dog. Any cause large enough to unleash the military upon the citizenry is going to have an immediate, strong, and deleterious effect upon the military organization that is supposed to carry out the orders.

BREAKING : Holy f’k. Seventy- two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston.

National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction.

Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.
Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” just issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.
The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.
Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”
Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.
Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units.
Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order.
The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.
And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.
On July 4th, 1776 these same “extremists” as Bill Mitchell calls them, signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, & sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, over the course of the next few years. Lest we forget..
