This is in response to Mr. Miller who, rather than tackling the subject of FACTUAL tweet, instead chose to look at it as on individual’s “opinion out of anger.” Not so, Mr. Miller, I will educate you and others on the BLM shortly, but first what does the tweet have anything to do with Mr. McConnell or Mr. McCarthy, or as usual, the typical “shot” at Donald Trump whenever people your thought persuasion look for excuses to avoid the subject at hand?
Now to the BLM tweet. It was sponsored by “BLM: Utah” the organization, not an individual.
Let’s look a bit closer to what the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is REALLY ALL ABOUT…it’s a great deal more than merely the words “Black Lives Matter”.
Black Lives Matter’s fund raising machine also has an interesting link to supporters of the Democratic Party, one of which is an organization called “Act Blue”.
To be fair, there are a number of groups that use the phrase “Black Lives Matter” in their name; however in this case, BlackLivesMatter.com is operated by an umbrella Black Lives Matter organization called the Black Lives Matter Global Network.
To collect donations, the website uses ActBlue Charities, a 501(c)(3) organization that specifically makes the platform available to charitable organizations.
In 2020, it was discovered that ActBlue’s top political recipients were the presidential campaigns of Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
ActBlue isn’t itself donating money.
It’s just the online platform that campaigns and groups use to solicit and collect donations.
It has an alliance with THOUSAND CURRENTS.

Contributions made to the Black Lives Matter movement through that organization are deductible as well.
After checking the above organizations, I then decided to visit the Black Lives Matter website itself, something I suggest all do to understand their objectives.
Within the body of their objectives, Black Lives Matter has made it clear that, as an organization, it exists to overthrow the existing order within the United States, stating on its website about its plan to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement” and to “foster a queer‐affirming network.”
Let’s look at an individual who has been associated with Thousand Currents, the organization that SPONSORS and has an ALLIANCE with “Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation”.
Susan Rosenberg has served as vice chair of the board of directors for Thousand Currents, an organization that provides fund raising and fiscal sponsorship for the Black Lives Matter Global Movement.
She was an active member of revolutionary left-wing movements whose illegal activities included bombing U.S. government buildings and committing armed robberies.
As recently as June 24, 2020 the date on which the Capital Research Center published their report, the Thousand Currents website listed Susan Rosenberg as vice chair of the organization’s board of directors, describing her as a “human and prison rights advocate and writer.”
The entire “board of directors” page has since been removed from the site.
Rosenberg’s prominent position within Thousand Currents is clear, as are that organization’s close links to the Black Lives Matter Global Network (and thereby the broader Black Lives Matter movement).
Originally from New York City, Rosenberg was an active member of several revolutionary left-wing groups and movements during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
In November 1984, she was arrested in Cherry Hill, New Jersey after police said she and an associate, Timothy Blunk, were found transferring 740 pounds of explosives, an Uzi submachine gun, an M-14 rifle, a rifle with a telescopic sight, a sawed-off shotgun, three 9-millimeter handguns and boxes of ammunition from a car into a storage locker.
Rosenberg was tried and convicted on the following charges:
“Conspiracy to possess unregistered firearms, receive firearms and explosives shipped in interstate commerce while a fugitive, and unlawfully use false identification documents …; possession of unregistered destructive devices, possession of unregistered firearm (two counts) …; carrying explosives during commission of a felony … ; possession with intent to unlawfully use false identification documents…; false representation of Social Security number, possession of counterfeit Social Security cards.”
In May 1985, New Jersey U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Bernard Lacey gave Rosenberg and Blunk the maximum available sentence of 58 years each in prison.
She spent 16 years in prison and was released in 2001 through executive clemency by then President Bill Clinton on his final day in office.
Her commutation produced a wave of criticism by police and New York elected officials at the time.
According to several contemporaneous news reports, Rosenberg had previously been charged with multiple offenses as part of a major 1982 conspiracy case against several prominent left-wing revolutionaries.
Along with the others, Rosenberg was charged with conspiracy and racketeering offenses in connection with the following incidents:
Then there is Joanne Chesimard.
The 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (also known as Assata Shakur)…
..a former leader of the Black Liberation Army who had been serving a life sentence for the 1973 murder of a New Jersey State Trooper named Werner Foerster.
The 1976 attempted robbery of an armored car in Pittsburgh.
The 1980 robbery of an armored car in Manhattan.
Three attempted robberies of armored cars in Danbury, Connecticut.
Four attempted robberies of armored cars in Nanuet, New York, in 1980 and 1981.
The most high-profile incident was the October 1981 Brink’s robbery in Nyack, New York.
Several members of the Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army groups were accused of having orchestrated and carried out the violent robbery of a Brink’s armored vehicle at the Nanuet Mall, stealing total of $1.6 million.
In the course of a police chase and shootout, two police officers and a Brink’s guard were killed.
The money was recovered.
Specifically, Rosenberg was accused of having driven one of the getaway cars.
After Rosenberg’s arrest in New Jersey in 1984, and her subsequent conviction and imprisonment on the weapons and explosives possession charges, prosecutors dropped the conspiracy and racketeering charges against her, and she was never tried or convicted in relation to the 1981 Brink’s robbery, the 1979 Shakur prison escape, or other armed robberies.
The prosecutor who oversaw the decision not to proceed with that case, in the 1980s, was Rudolph Giuliani, then U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
After Rosenberg’s release in 2001, Giuliani, by then Mayor of New York City, told the New York Times the charges were dropped because her existing 58-year prison sentence made a further prosecution unnecessary.
In 1988, Rosenberg was charged with aiding and abetting a series of bombings which took place between 1983 and 1985, at the Capitol building, Fort McNair, the Washington Navy Yard Computer Center and the Washington Navy Yard Officers’ Club, all in Washington,
D.C. Bombs were also planted, but did not detonate, at several sites in New York: the FBI’s office in Staten Island, the Israeli Aircraft Industries building, the South African consulate and the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.
However, prosecutors dropped those charges in 1990 as part of a plea deal involving other suspects in the bombings.
As a result, Rosenberg was never tried or convicted on any charges relating to the 1983-1985 bombing campaign.
Bet you never knew the REAL MEANING OF THE WORDS, did you?
Note: This is a HISTORY, not opinions.
And of course, there is Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the former leader of Black Lives Matter and a self-described Marxist, recently purchased a $1.4 million home in an exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood where the vast majority of residents are white, according to reports.
No Mr. Miller, this not anger, this is fact. This Socialistic organization that destroyed so many cities in 2020, assisted in financing the campaign of the current President of the United States.
