San Fran’s Gov’t Eating Itself Over Protests, MTA And Police Fighting Each Other

San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Refused To Carry Police To Protest Sites, Police Officers Association Responded By Refusing To Offer Protection To Buses And Trains

Government agencies in San Francisco are turning against one another over the recent spate of violent protests taking place within the city.

On Tuesday, the city’s Municipal Transportation Agency (MTA) put out a statement saying that they would no longer assist the San Francisco Police Department with transporting riot response teams to the various protest sites in town.

In response, the Police Officers Association issued a statement of their own, threatening to withdraw any support for the public transportation system, telling the agency responsible that they can fend for themselves when people avoid paying fares or vagrants make a home out of the city’s buses.

The Police Officers Association Responds: “Lose Our Number”

“Hey Muni, lose our number next time you need officers for fare evasion enforcement or removing problem passengers from your buses and trains,” their response read. “Shouldn’t be a @SFPD officer’s job anyway. @SFPDChief should stop using us for this.”

“So we’re all clear. As city leaders demand cuts to SFPD, it needs to be clear what SFPD will no longer do. If a ride on an out of service bus to ensure peaceful protests is too offensive, then don’t send us in to provide ‘security’ services to catch fare jumpers. These are real issues that demand real discussions, not hashtags, as we all have to live with the results.”

Rioters In Dallas Seem To Be Turning On Peaceful Protesters And Observers. Do Black Lives Really Matter To Them?

Blaze TV host Elijah Schaffer uploaded the alarming clip from Dallas, Texas late Friday evening. Riots have broken out across the country, ostensibly to support the cause of justice in the name of George Lloyd who died while being arrested in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 25 May 2020.

Many of the protesters have been dusting off the old chants from the Black Lives Matter Ferguson days—and that’s their claim: that this is a protest about the sanctity of life. But do they actually care at all about black lives? Or any lives at all?

Given the number of violent incidents that have occurred over the past few evenings, it’s hard to argue that they do. At least not in good faith. Not when they’re targeting the most vulnerable, like the disabled woman who they assaulted while she was in her wheelchair.

Here’s just one more incident of black lives not really mattering to the violent rioters:

VIDEO: Iranian protesters detonate bomb at Tehran’s state-run conglomerate

UPDATE: It appears that MEK has taken responsibility for this attack. We will update the story shortly.

Update 2: At present it is hard to clarify the details of this attack, a number of conspiracy theories are developing — some are declaring it as a “false flag” operation conducted by the Iranian regime and the footage handed off to MEK. We will continue to update as more facts come to light.

In the early hours of 30 December 2019, protesters acting in solidarity with those that engaged in the November Iran uprisings, attacked the headquarters of an engineering, mining, and defense conglomerate operated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The protesters, who supporters refer to as only “defiant youth” detonated an incendiary explosion at the entrance to the headquarters of the Khatam al-Anbiya headquarters in Tehran. The explosion seems to be relatively small and there are no reported injuries or arrests at this time.

Still, the operation is particularly impressive since the Iranian regime is currently on high alert fearing a resurgence of the November uprisings.

Location of the bombing

Khatam al-Anbiya Construction (also known as GHORB) is one of Iran’s largest contractors and has not only been the lead developer for numerous domestic infrastructure projects but has also assisted nations with military construction projects.

In Venezuela, GHORB assisted the regime with the construction of missile launch pads on the Paraguana Peninsula.

The conglomerate has been subject to American sanctions since 2007. In 2008, the European Union followed, levying sanctions against GHORB while citing their ties to Iran’s development of a nuclear weapons program, and in 2010, the UN Security Council adopted UN Security Council Resolution 1929 which placed additional sanctions against the organization.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran, an organization viewed as front organization for the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), was first to report the incident:

“On the 40th day memorial of the martyrs of the November 2019 Iran uprising, defiant youth attacked and torched the IRGC’s Khatam ol-Anbiya Construction Headquarters in the early hours of this morning, December 30, 2019.

Located on the corner of Zarafshan and Shajarian streets in Tehran, Khatam ol-Anbiya is one of the largest IRGC conglomerates for suppression and plunder of the Iranian people’s wealth.

The assault came while the regime’s suppressive forces were on full alert, fearing the upsurge in the uprising.”
