Kyle Rittenhouse - he is just a child. A young person who just wanted to help his community from the senseless destruction.


Kyle Rittenhouse Was Working as a Lifeguard in Kenosha the Day of the Shooting, Went to Clean Vandalism at School After Work

Kyle Rittenhouse is a community lifeguard who was working in Kenosha the day of the shooting.
This simple fact destroys the narrative being peddled by the mainstream media that he had “crossed state lines” to harm the rioters.

In a statement by Rittenhouse’s legal team at Pierce Bainbridge, provided to the Gateway Pundit, they explained that “after Kyle finished his work that day as a community lifeguard in Kenosha, he wanted to help clean up some of the damage, so he and a friend went to the local public high school to remove graffiti by rioters.”

Additionally, the weapon Rittenhouse was using to protect himself and others never crossed state lines.

“Later in the day, they received information about a call for help from a local business owner, whose downtown Kenosha auto dealership was largely destroyed by mob violence,” the statement continues. “Business owner needed help to protect what he had left of his life’s work, including two nearby mechanic’s shops. Kyle and a friend armed themselves with rifles due to the deadly violence gripping Kenosha and many other American cities, and headed to the business premises. The weapons were in Wisconsin and never crossed state lines.”

When Rittenhouse arrived at the mechanics shop, he and others stood guard to prevent further destruction. Later that night, long after the 8 p.m. curfew had passed, the police began to disperse a group of rioters. His lawyer, John M. Pierce, explains that while dispersing the mob, they maneuvered a mass of individuals down the street towards the auto shops. Rittenhouse and the others were threatened and taunted, but he did not react. “His intent was not to incite violence, but simply to deter property damage and use his training to provide first aid to injured community members,” Pierce says.
After the situation seemed to be diffused, Rittenhouse became increasingly concerned about people who were injured at the gas station, so he went in that direction with his first aid kit. He helped those he could find who were injured, either by administering aid or directing them which way to go for help beyond what he could offer.

The statement says that by the final time that Rittenhouse returned to the gas station and “confirmed there were no more injured individuals who needed assistance, police had advanced their formation and blocked what would have been his path back to the mechanic’s shop. Kyle then complied with the police instructions not to go back there. Kyle returned to the gas station until he learned of a need to help protect the second mechanic’s shop further down the street where property destruction was imminent with no police were nearby.”

“As Kyle proceeded towards the second mechanic’s shop, he was accosted by multiple rioters who recognized that he had been attempting to protect a business the mob wanted to destroy. This outraged the rioters and created a mob now determined to hurt Kyle. They began chasing him down. Kyle attempted to get away, but he could not do so quickly enough. Upon the sound of a gunshot behind him, Kyle turned and was immediately faced with an attacker lunging towards him and reaching for his rifle. He reacted instantaneously and justifiably with his weapon to protect himself, firing and striking the attacker,” Pierce explains.

Additionally, Rittenhouse stopped to ensure care for his attacker, hardly sounds like someone who had went to the riot with intent to kill.

“Kyle stopped to ensure care for the wounded attacker but faced a growing mob gesturing towards him. He realized he needed to flee for his safety and his survival. Another attacker struck Kyle from behind as he fled down the street. Kyle turned as the mob pressed in on him and he fell to the ground,” his legal team says. “One attacker kicked Kyle on the ground while he was on the ground. Yet another bashed him over the head with a skateboard. Several rioters tried to disarm Kyle. In fear for his life and concerned the crowd would either continue to shoot at him or even use his own weapon against him, Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers, striking two, including one armed attacker. The rest of the mob began to disperse upon hearing the additional gunshots.”

Rittenhouse then attempted to turn himself in, but was told to keep moving. He went and turned himself in to his local police that evening.

“Kyle got up and continued down the street in the direction of police with his hands in the air. He attempted to contact multiple police officers, but they were more concerned with the wounded attackers. The police did not take Kyle into custody at that time, but instead they indicated he should keep moving,” the statement says. “He fully cooperated, both then and later that night when he turned himself in to the police in his hometown, Antioch, Illinois.”

The legal team says that “in a reactionary rush to appease the divisive, destructive forces currently roiling this country, prosecutors in Kenosha did not engage in any meaningful analysis of the facts, or any in-depth review of available video footage (some of which shows that a critical state’s witness was not even at the area where the shots were fired); this was not a serious investigation. Rather, after learning Kyle may have had conservative political viewpoints, they immediately saw him as a convenient target who they could use as a scapegoat to distract from the Jacob Blake shooting and the government’s abject failure to ensure basic law and order to citizens. Within 24-36 hours, he was charged with multiple homicide counts.”

Rittenhouse is now being represented by some of the best legal minds in the country at Pierce Bainbridge, with help from Nicholas Sandmann’s lawyer Lin Wood.

On Friday, his legal team obtained a several-week continuance of his extradition hearing to September 25th. The lawyers say that this is an attempt to slow the rush to assassinate his character and destroy his life.

“Kyle, his family, the team at Pierce Bainbridge and his other lawyers intend to fight these charges every step of the way, take the case to trial and win an acquittal on the grounds of self-defense before a jury of his peers,” the statement reads.

The legal fees and other costs of Kyle’s defense will be provided through donations to #FightBack Foundation Inc., a Texas 501(c)(4) foundation created by John Pierce and Lin Wood to protect law- abiding American citizens whose rights are being trampled on by state and local governments that are more concerned with appeasing mobs than protecting those rights.

“A 17-year old child should not have to take up arms in America to protect life and property. That is the job of state and local governments. However, those governments have failed, and law-abiding citizens have no choice but to protect their own communities as their forefathers did at Lexington and Concord in 1775,” Pierce said. “Kyle is not a racist or a white supremacist. He is a brave, patriotic, compassionate law-abiding American who loves his country and his community. He did nothing wrong. He defended himself, which is a fundamental right of all Americans given by God and protected by law. He is now in the crosshairs of institutional forces that are much more powerful than him. But he will stand up to them and fight not only for himself, but for all Americans and their beloved Constitution. We will never leave his side until he is victorious in that fight.”

Is Kyle Rittenhouse a leader, a killer or a patriot? That’s something everyone will have to decide for themselves. He did not crumble under pressure. He stood up for what is right and he defended himself in a way that should make, not only every dad proud, but anyone who believes in individualism. I don’t know Kyle Rittenhouse, but I am proud of the way he handled himself and rose to the occasion – I pray, that if need be, I have the same mettle as Kyle Rittenhouse. You should as well.

That's supposedly the shooter. He was arrested in June for unlawful possession of a firearm, along with with driving under the influence of a controlled substance, and recklessly endangering another person. He was racing his son on the freeway with his 11-year-old daughter in the car. His son, in another car, also was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm plus driving while high on cannabis. Teach your children well….

Man fatally shot after pro-Trump caravan was Patriot Prayer ‘friend and supporter’ Jay Bishop
The series of events leading to the shooting remain murky, but the incident unfolded shortly after caravan organizer Alex Kyzik, who lives in Idaho, asked attendees to start exiting downtown Portland.
This article also includes a brief description of events over the day, leading up to the shooting.

Progressive community leaders call for Portland mayor, police chief to resign following deadly shooting
A group of leaders representing various progressive organizations from across the Portland area have called for the resignations of Mayor Ted Wheeler and Police Chief Chuck Lovell in the wake of Saturday’s fatal shooting.
“These conditions have been created because there’s been a lack of leadership, a lack of vision,” Singh said. “We can no longer move forward with the current leadership that’s in place in Portland.”
The demand for Wheeler to resign was also echoed in a joint letter from the Oregon chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Oregon Justice Resource Center, the Portland Democratic Socialists of America NextUp Action Fund, Portland’s Resistance and Popular Mobilization PDX.

“What took place last night was inevitable given Mayor Wheeler’s repeated failure,” the letter said. “He has not protected or supported Portlanders. We do not have confidence in his ability to course-correct. He must resign.”
Wheeler is up for reelection in November and has previously said publicly that he wouldn’t resign.

It appears that Wheeler may quickly be running out of friends and allies. His two major opponents in November may be further to the left than Wheeler.

I don't know whether this is authentic or not. But it's making it's rounds on twitter. I think that If civil war breaks out many veterans and military personal will propably take a side and fight. And they won't be siding with the Lefties.

I had a thought about this matter...

We know how the mass media tries false flags...

What if they create targeted false flags? I posted before on the notion that youtube programming can focus our interests into fixations, and it could be detrimental if we don't watch it. What if black culture is being infiltrated by imposters? Notice how a lot of the rioters are not black?

So, what if all those non-black supporters at the riots are black on-line? And they are creating a culture that is totally false? Of course there is the police altercations that set off the rioting, but the resentments, anger, ect. are cultivated in a youtube-like programming scheme.

This might seem crazy, but so are false flags. And they don't work, so it stands to reason they would refine the tactic, driving a wedge between us by isolating us in our spheres of interests, and youtube-like programming is the method.

I can go to the store and buy a smartphone, set up a phoney identity, give myself a black sounding name, frequent black interests: sports, music, ect. and you're black in a online sense. And it wouldn't be hard at all - maybe not so much in other countries - I don't know. I wondered what I would see on a 'profiled' phone - what I would be served as a online black.

Then you have the good guys coming to keep the peace.... That's suspicious because of the fact that the authorities are letting it all happen. It's as if they want involvement... And then the youtube-programming activates for the other side. Who's to say these victims are even victims, if it's a false flag? No one knows - some are, I'm sure - and to let the leaders let this happen without any resistance? They want it to happen. And to get involved looks noble on the surface, but it is rag-tag and doesn't remove these bad leaders from office. Keeping the peace in a organized fight? It is happening in democrat territory, and there is backlash for it coming, but inciteful videos... you have to keep in mind that it is controlled, and part of a programming scheme.

We live within illusions within illusions. Best to strive to know oneself and work with the things that flow from that, IMO.

Portland's mayor Ted Wheeler is showing his juvenile stupidity in his response to Trump's offer to send federal law enforcement to calm down the situation:


The letter reads like a teenager would have wrote it. Would you write "Portlanders are on to you", "no thanks" and "Stay away, please" in an official letter to the president if you'd be the mayor? :cool2: Plus, the propagandist nature of the letter is pretty obvious for everyone to see, e.g. "your bumbling response to the COVID pandemic".

The most stupid part is that he 'took the bait'. I could be wrong, but I think this is a classic 'art of the deal' move by Trump: threaten to do something, thus provoking an action by the opponent, who in this way has showed his true colors and has locked himself in a position from where he can't back away without loosing face and credibility.

These people really are stupid.

Ted Wheeler is a really strange guy as I've mentioned before. What is going on inside this man? Unfortunately, the new candidates for mayor may be even stranger 🤪.

These phrases are shallow and simplistic for sure. I've heard a few times, over the years, that Trumps orders are often times ignored by different departments and personnel. It's as though they don't respect him and don't recognize him being the legitimate president. Nancy Pelosi is a good example and she's getting worse by the day in her vindictiveness, very ugly. So, these phrases by Wheeler remind me of that attitude and he's part of the club. He doesn't respect Trump so he'll say whatever. Thats my idea on it.
Wheeler:
There is no place for looting, arson or vandalism in our city.
What :huh:🤪

Yes, obvious propaganda. In a way they are revealing their plans for all this created chaos. Maybe they thought Trump would rush in with the feds in a big way cracking down on the "peaceful protesters". He only sent in a very small number and so foiled the plan? But, they still carry out that plan, presenting the picture of the tyrant Trump trampling on the constitution by sending the feds in and creating all the trouble.

Art of the Deal sounds interesting to give insight into Trumps strategies. I haven't read it but my son has. The corrupt politicians play their roles in the game they invented. Trump isn't a life long politician so maybe this gives him an advantage as well. He's outside their game so he can see it more clearly.

Man under investigation in fatal shooting after pro-Trump rally allegedly took loaded gun to earlier Portland protest
There's no indication that Michael Forest Reinoehl is in custody yet. The article is pretty good and has some depth, a surprising level of journalism from this source.

Up in Canada our news is left, and then left, that is pretty much it - no balance, a media tyranny. Tonight, caught exactly who you discuss, Wheeler, and his talk was as weak and directed as can be; there is only one leader to point the finger at on our news, washed an recycled, and Wheeler helped. How he can keep a straight face I've know idea.

Our news does not point out that this mess is in his city, no, it sugarcoats and dishes out virtuous justice reasons that thugs will be thugs, and thank god for these thugs, that are not really thugs, they are saying, otherwise you get Trump who they equate with White Supremacists (their words tonight).

Fortunately, there are many up here, and it is growing, who are starting to say, quietly, that things are not what they are hearing and are turning against the MSM.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown to send state troopers to help police protests after fatal shooting
Gov. "Lock-Down" Brown said:
The right-wing group Patriot Prayer and self-proclaimed militia members drove into downtown Portland last night, armed and looking for a fight. Every Oregonian has the right to freely express their views without fear of deadly violence. I will not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets.
"Armed white supremacists" have mostly been absent in over 90 days of rioting, presuming that's what the governor is calling non-leftists. Brown's denunciation of violent rioters is not something I recall reading about.
[Gov. Brown] said the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office will work with other agencies to hold people arrested for violent behavior at protests, and that they would ensure that there is enough jail space for those people. She said the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office would prosecute serious criminal offenses related to the protests, including arson and physical violence.
Great idea! Glad someone thought of this. And after only 3 months of riots. Up until now, the Portland DA has been releasing nearly everyone without bail. Will the arrest of violent people include BLM/Anitifa, or just those pesky "white supremacists?"

Poster on ZERO HEDGE said:

"My condolences to the family of that patriot. However, hopefully people now realize that the best strategy is to stay away from cities run by commie filth. Go there to protest with your MAGA/Murica gear on and you're asking for a beat down...or worse. It's like walking into the South Side of Chicago and yelling the N-word.

The best strategy is to stay away and let these cities burn to the ground. If Antifa scum come out to your neighborhood and threaten you, then unload on them with everything you have. Otherwise, sit home, pop some popcorn and watch the self-immolation of the Left on the teevee.

It can't be said often enough: Never stand in your enemy's way when he's in the process of destroying himself."

A Patriot Prayer group member says they where deliberately tracked and attacked. Are these guys considered a real threat?

“They executed my partner. They hunted him down, they hunted us down. They recognized our Patriot Prayer hats. For anybody who doesn’t know Joey Gibson, citizens advocating for men, we support him, Christian and conservative. Um, so they identified our hats: “We got a couple of ’em right here. We got a couple of ’em right here. Pull it out. Pull it out”…I turned around. I didn’t even, it didn’t even register that somebody was pointing a gun at us until the shots went off and took off running…the shooter took off running and uh, you know, you, it takes a second to process everything that happened. You know, did he just shoot at me? Okay? I’m okay, turn over and Jay’s dead.


Now their website was massively hacked, taken off line and an impostor site put in its place to collect information on supporters. Could this be the work of the Shadow AI?

On the fake website are two giant forms asking for names, phone numbers, email addresses, and a space to leave a message. It even lists a phone number that people can call or text, which would also provide this malicious group with information.
