Earlier this week, The Washington Post reported that Kyle Rittenhouse used Covid stimulus money to pay for the rifle he used to defend himself from three attackers in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August.

The Post found that Rittenhouse, who was too young to buy a rifle, had arranged for an adult friend to buy the weapon for him using money Rittenhouse had received from a government stimulus program.

The Post interviewed Rittenhouse, who spoke publicly for the first time since his arrest. He said he did not regret that he had a gun that night. “I feel I had to protect myself,” he said. “I would have died that night if I didn’t.”

Rittenhouse has been held on $2 million dollars bail since his arrest in Illinois following the shooting. He was extradited to Wisconsin last month. Now, however, he’s posted the $2 million and was released from jail earlier to day.

Here’s the Associated Press’s report:

A 17-year-old from Illinois who is charged with killing two people during a protest in Wisconsin and whose case has become a rallying cry for some conservatives posted $2 million bail Friday and was released from custody.

Kyle Rittenhouse is accused of fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz during a demonstration Aug. 25 that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. He posted bond through his attorney at about 2 p.m., Kenosha County Sheriff’s Sgt. David Wright said.

Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, told police he was attacked while he was guarding a business and that he fired in self-defense.

He faces multiple charges, including intentional homicide, reckless endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. Wisconsin law doesn’t permit minors to carry or possess a gun unless they’re hunting. He is due back in court on Dec. 3 for a preliminary hearing.

His case has taken on political overtones. Supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement have painted Rittenhouse as a trigger-happy white supremacist. Conservatives upset over property destruction during recent protests have portrayed him as a patriot exercising his right to bear arms during unrest. A legal defense fund for him has attracted millions of dollars in donations, and his mother got a standing ovation from women at a Waukesha County GOP function in September.

Huber’s father, John Huber, asked Kenosha County Circuit Court Commissioner Loren Keating during a hearing Nov. 2 to set Rittenhouse’s bail between $4 million and $10 million. Huber said Rittenhouse thinks he’s above the law and noted the effort to raise money on his behalf. He also suggested militia groups would hide him from police if he were released.

Rittenhouse’s attorney, Mark Richards, asked for $750,000 bail.

Keating ultimately set bail at $2 million, saying Rittenhouse was a flight risk given the seriousness of the charges against him.

  1. the sovereignty of the king of courts, and its jesters are demanding higher bail money. their children who were killed in self defense reaped what they sowed. Wisconsin law concerning the 2nd amendment is a joke. The bail set is a joke. I notice how the article has the protest taking place after the shooting of some asshole resisting arrest and taking a taser from LEO. I am not a big fan of LEO in this day and age, but I still respect the law and their made up jurisdictional authority for the sake of being a moral person. blm should shut their cock-holsters; they have done more damage in their name in the past 10 months than anyone, with their little white soy-boy monkey soldiers antifa . Notice I did not capitalize…due to my disgust of their organizations. just like alqueda worthless terrorists.

    • I donated to Kyle’s legal defense and apparently that fund paid his $2m cash bail.
      I hope everyone else here continues to support Patriots like Kyle, and out Constitution with their time, money, and if necessary, direct action. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

  2. The Washington Post reported that Kyle Rittenhouse used Covid stimulus money to pay for the rifle : So what? I know a guy that blew his $1200 at a Strip Club and I can assure you that a shitload of “STIMULUS” money stimulated a lot of dope dealers around the country…

    Supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement have painted Rittenhouse as a trigger-happy white supremacist: Taking into account that the ONLY people he shot/killed/or even fired at were WHITE, these ignorant losers have already lost that argument….

    He faces multiple charges, including intentional homicide, reckless endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. The ONLY charge that will stick is the minor in possession of a firearm… Have they charged the “ADULTS” that were threatening him and assaulting him with endangering a minor? If they want to make the case that he was a minor in possession then they must agree that all of those adults were attempting to assault a minor….. Getting dead and or seriously maimed is just a result of those illegal and improper actions taken by “responsible” adults against the minor… OBTW, did Lefty have a permit for that CONCEALLED Glock

    • Flawed analysis in several respects. First, you can’t charge dead people with a crime. Second, a minor in possession is a strict liability misdemeanor that is violated by possession, not use. Kyle clearly possessed a firearm. Therefore it doesn’t matter if he was or was not being attacked because he violated that law well before the shootings. Finally, you are right that it doesn’t matter where he got the money. The problem instead is that he could not lawfully purchase the firearm from a dealer because he wasn’t old enough. He gave the money to a friend to buy the gun for him, and therefore he and his friend engaged in a straw sale transaction. Although that is a federal offense, it could easily stick. Plus the friend likely lied on the 4473, and that is perjury.

      • Your analysis of “minor in possession” falls apart when one remembers the numerous stories of much younger minors shooting home invaders.

        • Don’t be ridiculous, it is not unlawful for a minor to utilize a parent or guardian’s firearm for self-defense in the home in which he lives.

          The situation with young Mr. Rittenhouse is much different, he illegally procured a firearm and caused it to be transported across state lines so that he might possess it illegally.

          If he did indeed employ stimulus money to provide the funds for the illegal strawman purchase of the firearm in May, where did he get the funds, the $1200 stimulus checks were issued only to citizens 18 years old or older.

        • And we should also remain aware that such laws infringe upon his natural rights, which might be prohibited, itself.

      • The robot here just demonstrated what is wrong with America.

        The kid saved his own life from 3 maniacs and a mob. Everything before and after regarding that gun in a world not inhabited by attorneys and the above robot, would be irrelevant.

      • It does not follow that a person cannot legally defend himself while illegally in possession of a firearm. There’s no allegation that he caused the firearm to cross state lines, which is irrelevant anyway, as is what his friend may have done.

  3. Good Luck and Godspeed, Kyle.

    You are up against Political Criminals now that will do their best to incriminate YOU and incarcerate you for as long as they can. They care NOTHING for the truth.

  4. I don’t think young Kyle is going to skate from any jail time but they’re charging him as an adult. Even as he couldn’t “legally” buy or carry the AR as a minor. Confused yet?!? I have no problem whatever using my 1200bucks for whateverthefug I want!

    • Good point! If charged as an adult, the “minor in possession” charge must disappear! Is he, or isn’t he?

  5. Well you know, the confession that he used stimulus money to provide the funds for the AR 15 purchase is very interesting.

    Considering that no stimulus checks were supposed to be issued to 17-year-olds, one wonders just exactly what stimulus funds Rittenhouse was using for the strawman purchase of the AR 15.

    The investigation of Kyle Rittenhouse’s use of stimulus funds will probably provide more material for federal charges.

    • Hey remember when you said a white police officer killed that poor couple in Houston, but the officer is black? Hey remember when you were shown pictures of him three times and three times you backed up your lie saying that he was white? Hey remember when you finally had to admit that he was black and that you had been told he was white and you just repeated the lie? I remember. Everyone remembers.
      Hey remember when you said America had done nothing other than enslave black people for its entire history, but then had to admit that it fought a war to end slavery, sacrificing a quarter million of its sons in that struggle? I remember. Everyone remembers.
      You have no concept of the truth. You don’t even recognize it anymore. All you know how to do spew the lies you’re told.

      • He’s also told us that Trump was preparing for a military coup to stay in the oval office. I haven’t seen a Tracked Voting Booth on the streets yet.

      • He also told us that Hillary Clinton committed no crimes in her mishandling of classified material. Even though he hasn’t the slightest clue as to how classified material is to be handled or protected.

        • Actually, I do have some familiarity with handling sensitive information.

          But I’m not the one who said Hillary Clinton committed no crime in her handling of classified information, that would be the Republican appointed Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey.

          I believe he has much more information about the situation than either you or I so I give his opinion on the matter more credibility then I would attach to anything you could say about the situation.

          But really, do you have evidence or the sworn testimony of witnesses to present that would counter the opinion of the director of the FBI?

          By all means, please share with the group, I know we would all be interested.

      • Regarding the police officer in Houston, in the initial pictures I saw he looked white, sure my mistake. And I admitted I was wrong.

        “you said America had done nothing other than enslave black people for its entire history, but then had to admit that it fought a war to end slavery, sacrificing a quarter million of its sons in that struggle?”

        I have never said “America had done nothing other than enslaved Black people for its entire history”

        I have indeed repeatedly pointed out that for hundreds of years the American government supported the enslavement of our fellow humans, maiming and killing hundreds of thousands of innocent men women and children.

        And that the maiming and killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children was indeed performed by white American citizens, enslaving Black people and stealing the fruits of their labor for hundreds of years.

        Yep, I said all that, it’s a historical fact.

        No doubt, many good and true American citizens did indeed fight and give their lives to end the institution of slavery.

        And they are now spinning in their graves as they watch American citizens parade with the very flag of the traitors who attempted to destroy the United States of America and perpetuate the shameful and disgusting profiteering of slavery.

        • Just can’t stop lying can you? Really, you can’t help it. You don’t even recognize when you’re doing it anymore.
          You weren’t wrong. You weren’t mistaken. You trippled down on a blatant lie when the truth was literally right in front of you. You got caught lying. You got caught spreading an obvious lie. You tried to lie your way out of it. Over and over again. Lie after lie after lie. You do it every day. You ignore the truth. You can’t even see it.
          For once in your life, take responsibility.

        • “You ignore the truth.”

          Really? That’s all you got?

          Compared to the parade of rumor and outright propaganda lies spewed by the vast majority of posters on this website, I am a paragon of virtue.

          Posters on this list have claimed that the Clintons were responsible for ruby ridge when it was completely Reagan/Bush ATF operators, as well as recently claiming that Obama shut down the last lead smelter in the US.

          Others have claimed that Tamir Rice was pointing a gun at the police officers when they shot him, calling him a thug while at the same time holding up self admitted gun runner Kyle Rittenhouse as a hero.

          And who can forget the enthusiastic praise recently for the McMichaels family, carrying on the proud tradition of the southern slave catchers? I imagine pwrserge is somewhat disappointed they’ll be spending the rest of their lives in prison.

          In fact, this entire forum is nothing but a gun maker profiteering propaganda mouthpiece, design to sell lots of guns and ammo by inflaming American citizens with rumor and innuendo, not to mention baseless speculation.

          Multiple attack articles on Obama, Biden, etc. mostly filled with falsehoods and speculation rather than solid facts.

          But frankly, reading the multiple echo chamber postings of Russian disinformation conspiracy theories has proven quite entertaining over the years, please keep it up so intelligent folks can continue to be entertained.

          And please, try not to be terribly disappointed when Typhoid Trump’s childlike election tampering efforts come to naught, I know it will be quite a shock but try to bear up under the strain for the sake of your manhood.

        • Comey didn’t say that Clinton had committed no crimes. He said she had committed crimes but wouldn’t be charged with them.

        • The max sentence for an E felony is four years, you freaking muppet. Even if found guilty of the pretend thing they’re accused of, the McCloskeys are going to spend a day in prison.

        • Whiner49er the h o m o with nothing better to do than parrot the LIES of the demorat party…. what a f k n loser….
          You wait m f e r…. just wait and see what happens to your demorat liberal q u e e r party…

        • Oh no, I’ve got much more.

          It seems the lying party is the republican party, solicitation for election tampering and abuse of power, and another federal judge officially finds ‘orange man bad!’:

          “A federal judge has dismissed the Trump campaign’s Pennsylvania lawsuit attempting to overturn the 2020 election, issuing a stinging opinion that blasts the president’s legal team for a filing a disjointed lawsuit that lacked a compelling legal argument or factual proof to support it.

          U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann wrote that he would not “disenfranchise almost seven million voters,” as the Trump campaign had sought.

          “One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption,” Brann wrote. “That has not happened.”

          The judge, a Barack Obama appointee, dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning the Trump campaign cannot resubmit the case. The defeat levels a blow to the most high-profile case brought by the president in his multi-state effort to challenge the results of the Nov. 3 election.

          The crux of the Trump campaign lawsuit was that its poll watchers were not able to observe the counting of mail-in ballots, creating opportunities for “Democratic counties” to accept fraudulent and technically deficient ballots and “diluting” the power of voters in other counties.

          The case in Pennsylvania was argued Tuesday in court by Trump’s personal attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.”

          Rudy G and Trump strike out again in their attempts to defraud the American public.

    • He got laid off at the Y, and used his unemployment checks to buy a rifle.
      Thanks to Trump and Pelosi, two weeks’ unemployment for a part time lifeguard was more than enough to buy a M&P 15.

    • So, according to you, the money they forcefully gave everyone now has limits to what you can use it for?

      Please do tell us more.

      • Agree.

        I bought two shotguns with the money the government loaned me in advance of the taxes I pay.

        My money..I do what I want with it.

        Besides, Creepy Joe mumbled get a shotgun.

  6. Huber’s father, John Huber

    Hey, Dad, maybe your boy shouldn’t have been attacking someone with his skateboard.

    • He never taught his son the old adage. Never bring a skateboard to an AR15 fight.

      The terrorist wing of the democratic party( I know redundant) keeps recruiting pedos, felons and just plain stupid folk.

    • It’s a shame you can’t go back and do some things differently and maybe your son wouldn’t have wound up a scumbag criminal. Ordinarily I wouldn’t weigh in on a tragedy like this but you are trying to compound it by blaming someone else for your parental failure. Your son got what he deserved.

  7. Instead of sitting in jail for two months (with no credit for time served, as he wasn’t in WI custody yet), I’m thinking as soon as the accumulated donations totaled $2M they should have waived extradition and simultaneously posted bail. The kid’s 17, did he just graduate High School, or did he miss fall classes?

      • No…s h I t you f k n moron…. dropping out of the liberal s h I t hole schools was a smart move…..
        Stop that indoctrination POINT BLANK…..

        Crawl back under your rock you demorat whiner the gay 69er

  8. Now the left is wanting to do away with prisons. What’s the point in even trying him? Make him promise to go to his room until he’s 25?

    • Well, he’s a white Republican, and only liberals and democrats get a pass.

      I like how Kamala Harris didn’t meet with the woman who was raped, but instead went to visit the rapist. Yep, Democrats are the party of rapists.

  9. He shot white people and Jews, how is he a white supremist? If you free him he will shoot more whites and Jews. Blacks are not offended by his actions.

    • hopefully the same will be said for you in 2021. Last taste of freedom before those who defend it make you realize what it costs. I’m not even a boot licker or a thin blue liner, but people like you who assume rittenhouse was wrong, are trash that needs to be removed from this country.

      • Don’t forget the one that now answers to ‘lefty’. Its not just a description of his politics anymore.

        • The detail on that video was amazing. You could see that bicep turn into a bye-cep of a cloud of pink mist from the muzzle blast.

          Taught that Leftist scum punk-ass a lesson he’ll never forget! 🙂

    • Oh this is hilarious, you people are just so sad.

      I mean ‘hard drives’ really?

      Hey grandpa, they don’t use hard drives anymore, all the hip people are using SSDs.

      Oh no, somebody stole the punch card reader, how will we count the votes now?

      Oh yeah, I need to point out you guys need to check your Rudy-bot, it looks like he’s leaking machine oil from his cranium, might’ve blown a gasket.

        • The same moron that believes only SSDs are used for data storage…. I have two 10 terabit hard drives… A SSD of that size would be cost prohibitive to the average person…. Seagate SSD at 960 GB is $1100.00… I paid $189.00 each for two 10 TB 7200 RPM HDDs…..

        • The same kind of moron that believes network engineers and certified M$ server guys in a data center ask “How big is the SSD?” vs “How big is the hard drive?”

          American English calls gelatin Jello.

        • Maddie, the conspirators kept the votes on a $189 hard drive?

          And only one copy at a facility in Germany?

          No wonder Donald Trump was able to snooker you people so easily, you swallow these disinformation and lies without thought.

          So did you see Tucker Carlson’s takedown of Sidney Powell, for once in his life he spoke clearly and openly about the Republicans lack of factual evidence to support their wild assed claims of a widespread secret conspiracy.

          What is going on with Hunter Biden‘s laptop, wasn’t AG Barr and the DOJ supposed to arrest him by now? Burisma or something?

          And I thought Q&Anon was going to act now to secure trumps presidency and crush the liberals, what happened to that plan?

        • “I had information from some of our former intel people that there was extremely compelling evidence that could be gleaned from Scytl,” Gohmert said on the call, referring to the election software company. He claimed Scytl had offices in Frankfurt and “was responsible for aggregating all the information from all the [voting] machines and whatnot… that information as to how many votes were switched from Republican for Democrat would have been easily established from the information that Scytl gathered.”

          But that’s not what Scytl does in the U.S. We’ll explain more on that later.

          Gohmert went on to say, “It turns out, I don’t know the truth, I know that there was a German tweet in German saying that on Monday, U.S. Army forces went into Scytl and grabbed their server. There are some that believe this is the U.S. intelligence that manipulated all this in order to cover their own rear ends.”

          There is no evidence to support that claim. The Army has said that it conducted no such raid, and Gohmert’s office didn’t respond to a request for more information. It’s worth noting that Gohmert didn’t include that claim in a letter he signed on Nov. 13 with eight other congressmen asking the attorney general to investigate Scytl.

          Despite a lack of evidence, the suggestion that there was a raid and a seized server has appeared on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Some of those posts also feature an electoral map shown on OAN that supposedly reflects the results on the seized server. OAN attributed the map to Manga Anantatmula, a defeated Republican congressional candidate in Virginia who didn’t respond to our request for comment. The map shows Trump winning 410 electoral votes, including California’s 55 electoral votes. Biden had a 29% lead over Trump in California as of Nov. 19, according to the secretary of state’s unofficial count.

          Also, Scytl doesn’t have offices in Frankfurt. The company, which is based in Spain, has a U.S. subsidiary that handled all of its U.S. election work in 2020, according to a fact sheet it posted in response to the viral claims.“

          Oh no, the entire United States Army is in on the conspiracy!

    • If Sidney Powell has the evidence and proof that American votes were stored on servers in Germany that have been confiscated by the United States Army, why would trump and Rudy cut her loose from the team?

      So much for the elite strike force releasing the kraken… Turns out it’s just a hermit crab scuttling under a rock.

  10. I used my check to pat fed taxes this year. I would rather have a rifle but someone has to feed the unproductive.

  11. If it were hunter biden charged with killing pedestrians wearing MEGA Caps joe biden would get 10% of the $10.00 bail.

  12. WOOF 2 million dollar bond for ‘littering!” dare tree huggers!

    they should let him go all his ‘littering” was bio-degradable!

  13. “Supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement have painted Rittenhouse as a trigger-happy white supremacist. Conservatives upset over property destruction during recent protests have portrayed him as a patriot exercising his right to bear arms during unrest…”

    Doesn’t matter if he’s a white supremacist or patriot, it was self defense.

    Although the fact that he took out a child molester and domestic abuser is a pretty good bonus.

  14. “Huber said Rittenhouse thinks he’s above the law”

    Oh yes? So, Huber’s son, who was out burning and vandalizing, was a peaceful law-abiding angel? Just like Rosenbaum, who first attacked Kyle?

    Facts say that those who think they’re above the law got shot in self-defense that night, with the whole thing captured on a multitude of videos that are there for anyone to see. Huber’s brat was with Rosenbaum that night, the very Rosenbaum who was spitting venom and spoiling for a fight – till he got one, but the wrong one. They were not selling Girl Scouts’ cookies, and paid the price for thinking they could destroy whatever they wanted, and attack whoever they wanted.

    If they had thought that laws applied to themselves too, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

    • John Huber’s demand to the judge for a 4 -10 million dollar bail bond for Kyle in light of his own son’s disregard for the law is interesting and ironic. You could even say hypocritical, but then again, anarchists don’t really care for law and order. Morality is relative.

      Let’s look at another disgusting un-American example named Robert Bergdahl.
      Robert Bergdahl is Army deserter Bo Bergdahl’s father. Robert is an obvious Muslim sympathizer. One look at him, his language, and mannerisms will tell you all you need to know what motivated his son’s thoughts and actions.

  15. He faces multiple charges, including intentional homicide, reckless endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. Wisconsin law doesn’t permit minors to carry or possess a gun unless they’re hunting. He is due back in court on Dec. 3 for a preliminary hearing. 

    • Wisconsin law doesn’t permit minors to carry or possess a gun unless they’re hunting.

      I’ll take that as a deliberate misstatement.
      What kind of scam/virus do I get if I’m foolish enough to click your link?

      • Wisconsin law doesn’t permit minors to carry or possess a gun unless they’re hunting.

        FEDUP…. Don’t know about that link BUT Wisconsin law DOES prohibit a minor from being in possession of a firearm unless they are hunting….

        • Or accompanied by an adult, or other exemptions…

          Seriously, this has been hashed and rehashed for 12 weeks already.
          If what you say was the entirety of the law, you could never teach a kid to shoot in Wisconsin.

          I would like to know WTF happened to the adult who was on camera saying he was protecting Kyle, a minute or two before a convicted rapist of teen boys was seen chasing Kyle…

        • Well, that takes care if that, then, right? There were plenty of adults around, hell, the guys he killed were adults! So, no “minor in possession”, clearly fired in self defense (I think *I* could win that case!), running out of charges, here, we just have to assure legal bills don’t cripple him for life and we can celebrate with him.

        • At least one of the militia members with Rittenhouse that night has spoken about the matter.

          “Ryan Balch, the Wisconsin man who Hatewatch reported was immersed in white supremacist propaganda before joining Rittenhouse in Kenosha on Aug. 25, reached out to Hatewatch by phone. He offered additional context about what happened that night, when Rittenhouse allegedly killed two people and injured another. Balch, 31, described the militia contingent that descended on the city in the midst of civil unrest there as being “small groups of friends who went together” in separate groups. He called the groups “ad hoc.” Balch also told Hatewatch that Rittenhouse lied to him that night, claiming that he was 18 years old and an EMT, both of which were untrue.”

  16. Come trial time, just show the video. Obvious self defense. it’s a travesty what the main stream media fake news machine has done to this young man who was defending himself. I guess some people Can’t Understand Normal Thinking.

  17. Kyle is an American hero. He acted in self-defense and neutralized the threat posed by domestic terrorist who attempted to do him harm. He should get the keys to the city and the Medal Of Honor.
