On August 4, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) convened a hearing in D.C. titled ‘The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble: Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence,’ which will highlight how Antifa and other anti-American anarchists engage in riots and violence.”
Cruz saw fit to mention what he called civil unrest in our neck of the woods. He said: “This is happening in my home state in Austin and Dallas, and it’s happening across the country. Whether in Minneapolis, Nevada City, Pittsburgh or Toledo, But tragically, nowhere more so than Portland, Oregon…”
Nevada City? I wonder what he was referring to. I can’t think of an incident that occurred at that time that ranked with the ones in the other cities he mentioned.

The Nevada City Police Chief’s response to the counter-protesters is here: https://sierrafoothillsreport.com/2020/08/10/nevada-city-police-chief-i-was-appalled-by-the-behavior-of-the-counter-protesters/
Can anyone explain how Nevada City did not have “civil unrest” till this past Sunday night but Cruz spoke about Nevada City having civil unrest last Tuesday ? Psychic or did he know ahead of time let’s say via LaMalfa….just doesn’t make sense.
The C-Span video of the hearings and transcript is here, and Cruz does not elaborate: https://www.c-span.org/video/?474496-1/hearing-protests-us# We need to dig deeper!
Maybe the Friar Tucks media blitz or Reinette…we’ve had more than our share lately. I have to admit to a creepy suspicion that he knew more was coming.

The local political agitator is engaged until election day to lather up the Trump base by staging thinly veiled Trump rallies using a variety of pretext. He packages these media events into ‘stories’ he then sends along to local, state, and national press organizations.
Eric Christen is a publicity agent who is expert at creating chaos using both traditional and social media.
He is a talented organizer of disparate fringe groups so that the whole of these cult-like outlier entities becomes more than the parts.
Eric melds symbiotic factions together so that they might be presented to the press, pre-packaged, as an amplified legitimate force.
Give Eric credit where credit is due. This predator that Congressman Doug LaMalfa activated in our community ten weeks ago (we have that video, too) knows exactly how to work an innocent target.
Nevada County is a sleepy, friendly place where it is easy for a public relations pro to “spoil the nest” (his words on video).
Take a listen about half-way through the video — as he gleefully expresses his intent — while inciting a mob.
To combat these disingenuous bully tactics, be sure to share this nine-minute video as widely as possible to protect the community from this jackal & his allied cult associates who call themselves the ‘Freedom Angels.’
Together, these fanatics are the story behind the headlines.
