Pipeline protesters who fired a gun during arrest sentenced to more than 4 years in prison (Update)

Published

on

Red Fawn Fallis is the Dakota Access Pipeline protester who, back in 2016, fired a handgun when three police officers tried to arrest her. The charges against her were the most serious stemming from any conflict during the pipeline protest. Today a judge sentenced Fallis to more than four years in prison. Bismark Times reporter Jack Dura was on hand for the sentencing and reported the results on Twitter:

Fallis has been in custody since she was arrested in October 2016. She was initially charged with attempted murder but those charges were later dropped to clear the way for federal charges. Some of her time was actually spent at a halfway house but that arrangement was rescinded after she failed to show up for an adult learning class she was scheduled to attend. Today the judge who sentenced her said she would not get credit for time served at the halfway house because of her subsequent arrest.

This January, Fallis pleaded guilty to “civil disorder and gun possession by a convicted felon.” Despite her plea, and despite the fact that she had a previous record, there are still lots of people on the left who consider her a martyr. A change.org petition demanding that charges against her be dropped has over 20,000 signatures. The petition claims “Fallis is innocent of the charges she is facing” but doesn’t spell out what those charges are or why she’s innocent.

As you can see in the video below, Fallis was surrounded by police when the gun went off three times. It really is miraculous no one was hurt. Even with her time served and the sentences running concurrently, Fallis probably will face another 3 1/2 years behind bars. After that, she’ll have another 3 years of supervised release.

Update: Here’s the AP story on today’s sentencing.

Red Fawn Fallis, 39, was accused of firing a handgun three times while resisting arrest on Oct. 27, 2016. No one was hurt. Fallis, a member of the Oglala Sioux tribe, denied intentionally trying to injure anyone and claimed not to remember firing the gun after being tackled by police…

Fallis spoke for several minutes when the judge allowed her to comment, saying she regrets what happened and is using it as an impetus to turn around her troubled life.

“I made poor choices once again and it hindered my decision-making,” she said, adding later that “I’m sorry for what the officers had to go through because of my choices.”…

Judge Hovland concluded that “nobody knows what the real purpose was” of Fallis firing the gun but that “at a minimum (she) committed a menacing-type assault on the officers.”

Despite everything, she still has her supporters:

Obama’s Former Director of National Intelligence Says Obama Behind Entire Russia Witch Hunt!

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, came clean on CNN and stated that former President Obama was behind spying on President Trump!

James Clapper was on CNN yesterday and he stated that Obama was behind spying on President Trump and all the corrupt and criminal actions involving the government, including the Mueller investigation –

According to Obama’s former spy chief, James Clapper, who appeared on CNN to say it was Obama who set the entire Russia witch-hunt into motion by tasking the intelligence community assessment.

Clapper said –

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.  President Obama is responsible for that.  It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

The cat is out of the bag.

Sunday morning talking heads

Published

on

By

It’s a special day on the Sunday shows when socialism’s new superstar drops by to show off her intellectual chops.

She’ll be on “Face the Nation” along with her idol, Bernie Sanders, as they campaign together in Kansas for a progressive Democrat running for Mike Pompeo’s old House seat. Why they’re wasting their time there, I have no idea: It’s a R+15 district. Presumably the idea is to draw big crowds so that other socialist candidates across the country can point to it and say, “See? Even in the heartland they want hard-leftism.”

Otherwise it’s likely to be wall-to-wall chatter about Trump and Putin today. Adam Schiff will be the lead guest on “This Week,” where he’ll say Adam-Schiff-type things about collusion and kompromat. The top-billed Republican, meanwhile, is Marco Rubio, who took some heat this week after claiming that he was satisfied with POTUS’s “I said ‘would’ when I meant to say ‘wouldn’t’” walkback of the Putin press conference. He’ll sit down with “Face the Nation” and “State of the Union” for some “Are you serious?” questions and will also likely be pressed on Trump’s commitment to NATO. Rubio’s a hawk of almost McCain-ian proportions, but unlike McCain he has a long career ahead of him potentially and therefore needs to stay on Trump’s good side. He’ll do his best this morning to be diplomatic with his criticism of the president’s NATO skepticism.

If you can stand it, John Kerry will also be on “Face the Nation” to condemn Trump for not showing as much strength towards an enemy as Kerry himself did with, er, Iran. The full line-up is at the AP.

DEVELOPING: DOJ Releasing Docs Related to FISA Warrants on Carter Page

Published

on

By

On Friday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trump’s former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI — and were on the way to JW headquarters.

Almost one year ago to the day, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for the following documents:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.

Obama’s Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

“Judicial Watch may finally get the infamous spy warrants the Obama administration and Deep State used while conspiring with the Clinton campaign to target then-candidate and now President Trump. It took a year, but the stonewall and cover-up, we hope, begins to end today,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.


Tom Fitton updated and said the docs were Fed Ex’ed.

Fitton appeared on Fox News early Saturday morning to discuss the new development.

Tom Fitton expects the documents to have redactions, however he said on Fox News, “I suspect we’ll get more answers. We won’t get all the answers we want, so the fight will continue.”

VIDEO:

The new FISA warrant documents have not been released at the time of this publication, however; The Gateway Pundit will update as soon as the documents are available.

Update: Tom Fitton says he expects to receive the corrupt FISA docs by Monday.
