Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt vowed to intervene in the McCloskey case during a Monday night interview with Fox News anchor Shannon Bream, saying he’s pushing for the case to be dismissed altogether.
“The truth of the matter is this is nothing more than a political prosecution brought by St. Louis Prosecutor Kim Gardner,” he said. “The right to self-defense is deeply rooted in our constitution. It’s a fundamental right. It actually predates our Constitution. The founders knew how important it was. It’s a God-given right. It can’t be taken away or given to us by government. It’s unalienable.”
That right is not only provided by the Constitution, but also by the Missouri Constitution and the State’s statutes, Schmitt added. And, with rising crime in the state, “we’ve got a prosecutor now targeting individuals for exercising their fundamental rights under the Second Amendment,” Schmitt explained.
“Enough is enough. The law is very clear. It’s time, as the State’s Chief law enforcement officer to step in. We’re entering the case and we’re seeking to have this case dismissed, not just for the McCloskey’s, but for every Missourian whose rights are threatened by a rogue prosecutor who seeks to punish people for exercising their fundamental right to self defense.”
The McCloskey’s, a Missouri couple, are accused of weapons violations after they pointed guns at protestors who breached their gated property last month. Gardner filed charges against the couple Monday. In her statement regarding the move, Gardner wrote, “It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable in St. Louis.”
Mark McCloskey, however, had a few choice words for the St. Louis prosecutor on Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “Now I’m just flat out pissed off. This has gotten to be outrageous,” he told Carlson, citing Gardner’s efforts to protect those threatening his family and his property.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father
Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”
Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”
It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.
Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”
Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
