Statue of Liberty Climber Shows Up To Court With Nasty Anti-American Surprise For Everyone

Published

on

Radical activist Therese “Patricia” Okoumou, 44, is back in the news again. You remember her. She was the one that clambered up the Statue of Liberty and onto her right foot and then had to be rescued by police at great expense. She also caused the monument to be shut down for a time on July the 4th because of her actions. She did it to protest President Trump and his immigration policies. She is part of a revolutionary group that stands against pretty much everything that President Trump stands for. It would seem she’s not done venting by a long shot.

Okoumou held a press conference outside the courthouse where she was being arraigned. She had a nasty surprise for those listening. She spewed anti-American hate speech to all with earshot. Okoumou calls herself an immigrant rights activist. She was in Manhattan federal court on Friday pushing for a no-jail guarantee from a judge. One of the U.S. Park Police officers even shook Okoumou’s hand as she left the courtroom. I don’t understand why after all the trouble she caused and what she stands for, but it was a diplomatic thing to do.

Ron Kuby, who is one of Okoumou’s attorneys, requested that the judge determine ahead of the trial if he would sentence Okoumou to jail time before she could take a plea deal. That’s something federal judges must do in certain misdemeanor cases, Kuby argued. “If I can receive an assurance from the court that my client would not go to jail,” Kuby said, his client would agree to take a plea deal. Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein said he wanted both sides to submit written motions on whether he should decide ahead of the trial if he would sentence her to prison time. I’ve never heard of such a thing. Why would you let someone being charged dictate a judge’s actions like this? Okoumou is also represented by Rhidaya “Rhiya” Trivedi from Kuby’s New York City firm.

After exiting the court and a 40-minute hearing, Kuby said Okoumou’s “non-violent civil disobedience… should not be penalized with a jail sentence. That should be rewarded.” You don’t say. That’s just nuts after what she did in my opinion. Okoumou wore a green dress with the words, “I really care, why won’t u?” written on it. That was an apparent slap at the “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket worn by First Lady Melania Trump.

Dozens of Okoumou’s supporters cheered her on outside the court. She was born in the Congo but is a naturalized citizen evidently. Then Okoumou showed her real feelings for the United States by chanting, “America you mother f–kers! You drug addicts! You KKK! You fascist USA.” One wonders if she hates it here so much, why she doesn’t leave.

Among her supporters that surrounded her at the press conference were members of her group, Rise and Resist. She called for that morning’s hearing to request a preliminary determination as to whether the judge intends to impose prison time. She pleaded not guilty on July 5th, but she faces a possible 1.5-year sentence if convicted on three charges against her: trespassing, disorderly conduct and interfering with agency functions. Frankly, she should also have to pay the bill for her rescue. “There is, however, a special rule in the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that governs what we call petty offense, and that rule not only permits but requires the judge to make a preliminary determination as to the possibility of a jail sentence,” civil rights defense lawyer Ron Kuby told reporters outside the courthouse.

Okoumou was flanked by her attorneys as she addressed the media on August 3rd, following her appearance in federal court. Prosecutors called the protest a “dangerous stunt,” but attorney Kuby once again lauded his client’s actions. Calling her “Our Lady of Liberty,” Kuby said Okoumou’s protest was in line with “literally the highest traditions of nonviolent civil disobedience, captivating the attention of the world on America’s most special day to bring to the world’s attention the plight of immigrant children.” Disgusting. “Return the Children,” her supporters chanted, referencing the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy on immigration.

Staten Island-based Okoumou meanwhile has kept busy in the month since her arrest: assembling a team of support professionals, including a public relations strategist, fundraising experts, a social media specialist and a clothing designer.

From Courthouse News:

“Both inside and outside of the courthouse Friday Okoumou offered several statements opposing the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

“Reading a part of her speech in both French and English, Okoumou called on French President Emmanuel Macron directly to publicly renounce the Trump administration’s “barbaric and arbitrary” immigration laws.

“Okoumou also spoke about her involvement with the group Rise and Resist: “I am a member of Rise and Resist because its mission is simple: consistency and involvement in direct actions.”

“The New York City-based group described itself as “committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties.”

“Citing the legendary American civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., Okoumou proclaimed: “I submit that an individual who breaks the law their conscience tells him is unjust and who willingly accept the penalty of imprisonment in order to arise the conscience of the community of its injustice is, in reality, expressing the highest respect for law.'”

And people wonder why Democrats are fleeing their party at a record rate and why American’s, in general, want nothing to do with them. This is a great example of why that is.

Kavanaugh Accuser Unravelling – Hit With Stiff Ultimatum After Ignoring Senate’s Inquiries

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins said she finds it odd that Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high school-era sexual assault, will not respond to inquiries from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“That’s very puzzling to me. I have said from the beginning that these are very serious allegations and she deserves to be heard. She’s now being given an opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to answer questions and I really hope that she doesn’t pass up that opportunity,” Collins said to a group of reporters in the Dirksen Senate Office Building Tuesday morning.

This comes as Ford previously said she would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Collins has been on the fence on her support for Kavanaugh, and mentioned to reporters Tuesday she would like to see the “two attorneys who are representing Judge Kavanaugh and Professor Ford do the questioning for the first round and then go to the committee for questions.”

“It’s not unheard of to have counsel do questioning,” she added. “[Ford] will be represented by counsel. And I think it’s important that we hear from both Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh under oath in a public hearing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for bringing forward a 36-year-old accusation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, on the Senate floor Monday.

Mueller Investigation Comes To Screeching Halt After Anti-Trump Dem Exposes His Fatal Mistake

Published

...

* By

Bob Woodward, an investigative reporter who works for The Washington Post, has been in the business of ‘dirty little secrets’ so long that he was part of the team who cast a light on Richard Nixon during Watergate. In fact, once Fox News even called him a Watergate legend. Well, it has become quite obvious that now he has his sights set on President Trump and his administration. In fact, he makes it very clear where he stands when it comes to President Trump in his new “secret” book, ‘Fear’.

Yes, it was a secret because he told no one about it for the past 19 months he’s been writing it. He wanted to keep a ‘low profile’ while he researched what he planned to include in the book. There was a press release for ‘Fear’ that described the book as “an unprecedented look into the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies”.

Woodward claims that he engaged in “hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources”. It is for this reason, we can tip a hat to the man’s work ethic despite the difference of opinion we have with him regarding President Trump and the administration. I am going to show you why right now.

Bob Woodward had an interview with Hugh Hewitt recently, in fact just a few days ago. In this interview what he revealed arguably gives President Trump supporters a very good reason to send a fat “IN YOUR FACE!” telegram to Democrats.

Check this out!

“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.

“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”

“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.”

“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.”

Hewitt would once again ask Woodward about collusion at the conclusion of the interview.

“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.”

“That is correct,” Woodward said.”

Now if that isn’t satisfying to read, I don’t know what is. Not once, but twice Woodward clarified that he did not find ANY evidence of collusion during his research. This is coming from the same investigative reporter that was called at one time ‘a legend’ for his work. I mean, this is a man who is known for his extensive interviews with first witnesses, and research into documents, meeting notes, calendars, and even diaries. He is praised for how he constructs seamless narratives of events that he tells through the eyes of actual key participants.

Even the left knows this about him.

So, you can bet that him saying not once, but twice that he found zero evidence of collusion, is going be a real slap in the face for the left. Maybe if we listen very carefully we will be able to feel the tremor being caused by a nation full of ‘triggering’ liberals right this very second!

But I digress…

Despite this, there is still a lot of manipulative work he put into the book as well. For example, the petty stuff he made sure to include, was absolutely ridiculous.

Things such as:

“Fear: Trump In The White House also details President Trump’s explosive rants.”

“He is said to have called Attorney General Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded”, allegedly adding: “He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”

I’d like to give a moment now to Trump, to clear things up on this.

There were also many schoolyard claims about White House Chief John Kelly such as the following:

“White House chief of staff John Kelly frequently lost his temper and referred to President Donald Trump as “unhinged” and an “idiot,” author Bob Woodward writes in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

We can clear that up to, since the book’s release Kelly has had something to say about this claim.

“Kelly, in a statement Tuesday, denied the claims as simply “not true.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refuted the book’s claims.”

“Kelly said in his statement that “the idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true . . . . As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly said. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

“Sanders said Tuesday that “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad.”

Needless to say, the book ‘Fear’ is just another ‘he said, she said’ work created with the purpose of adding fire to the left’s agenda and casting doubt upon the shoulders our President, but do you think it will have that effect at all? We want to know what you think!
