Morning Greatness: Soros Prosecutor Files Charges Against St. Louis Couple

Good Tuesday morning.

Here’s what is on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president signs a Memorandum
  • President Trump holds a news conference
  • Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany holds a press briefing

Governor says he will pardon St. Louis couple who defended their lives and property

The St. Louis Soros-proxy prosecutor Kim Gardner announced she will charge Mark and Patricia McCloskey with felony unlawful use of a weapon and fourth-degree assault. “It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner — that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis,” Gardner said in a statement. It’s not illegal to defend life and property in Missouri, lady, so buckle up.

The McCloskeys defended their property from a rioting crowd of hooligans who broke down an iron gate to trespass on private property. The degenerates threatened the two home owners. “[They said] that they were going to kill us,” Patricia McCloskey recalled at the time. “They were going to come in there. They were going to burn down the house. They were going to be living in our house after I was dead, and they were pointing to different rooms and said, ‘That’s going to be my bedroom and that’s going to be the living room and I’m going to be taking a shower in that room.'”

No word if Gardner will be charging the rioters. Just kidding, she’s not.

Not everyone in Missouri is a power-hungry Soros proxy like Kim Gardner. Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt called Gardner’s move a “political prosecution” and described the actions as having “a chilling effect on Missourians’ exercising the right to self-defense.” That’s right, this move is stop people from protecting themselves against violent “protestors.”  Gardner is trying to set an example so that other people don’t fight back against looting, rioting and assault.

“The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in the Missouri constitution and our laws, which I am charged with protecting,” Schmitt said in a video posted to his Twitter page.

“And yet in the wake of radical calls to defund the police, and with rates of violent crimes skyrocketing each day, the St. Louis circuit attorney filed suit against a St. Louis couple who according to published reports were doing just that — defending the safety of their family and their property.”

“Enough is enough,” he said. “As Missouri’s chief law enforcement officer I simply will not stand by while a Missouri law’s being ignored. That’s why I’m entering this case and seeking dismissal of this case to protect the rights of Missourians to defend themselves and their property.”

The Governor of Missouri, Mike Parson announced he will pardon the couple. “I will do everything within the Constitution of the State of Missouri to protect law-abiding citizens and those people are exactly that. They are law-abiding citizens, and they’re being attacked frankly by a political process that’s really unfortunate.”

“They had every right to protect their property, their home, just like any of us would. If you had a mob coming towards you, whether they tore down a gate or not, when they come on your property, they don’t have a right to do that in an aggressive manner. People have a right to protect their selves, their families, their property,” said Parson.

Meanwhile, the Soros-proxy Gardner is too busy to charge actual criminals. Governor Parson told Sean Hannity that Gardner has filed charges in only 30 homicide cases despite 135 such crimes in St. Louis year-to-date.

“She says she doesn’t have the time and doesn’t have the resources and yet she will go out here and charge innocent citizens, private citizens that haven’t violated the law. It just defies common sense why any elected official would do such a thing.”

Does it defy common sense? Gardner and the other Soros proxies aren’t there to protect the public, they are there to make sure the criminal justice system is “reformed” by refusing to enforce the laws.
