Alpha News Journalist Assaulted While Covering Minneapolis Protest: ‘It’s Not Going to Go Well for You’
Why are these protesters attacking a member of The Press? They are doing it to get undeserved attention. These are total losers. Angie is a Attack Goon for SLEEPS. Alley says she is a Anti-Capitalist Wiccan and got her sisters to perform witchcraft in Ken Kesey Square. I am reminded of the Manson Women. Sacrificing animals is part of Satanic rituals.
Above is a photo of Belle Burch invading the City Manager’s office with her love, Ambrose, and Alley Valkyrie. The three got arrested. Two days later Belle would approach me in Ken Kesey Square. She asked for my number, and eight days later she called to arrange a meeting. We met for two hours, and she hid the fact she was very involved with anarchists and advocates for the homeless. The poem Belle sent me appeared to indicate moneys were being misused. I suggested this in my newspaper-blog, and got an evil threat from Alley who I never met. Her and Belle thought their threat was going to – shut me up! This is when I had to be – deranged! Sure they became afraid!
These are criminals who believe elected officials should be replaced – by them! They did not run for office. They have no respect for the law. I told Kim Haffner about my run in with SLEEPS when we were friends. I leant her my famous sister’s biography, and it came back damaged! She denied everything. She went on the attack employing our neighbors. She took the side of criminals and slanderers. She violated my rights. We were FB friends. Here’s Belle sticking her tongue out at me before she approached me in the square. This was our first meeting.
“You sent all this information to me, John. You done it to yourself. You caused all this. You went AWOL. You need to be in a mental institution.”
In the witch-hunt video below Kim Haffner says; “WE read all about you.” She is talking bout the fake and sexually abusive report that Alley Valkyrie made, allegedly with Belle Burch’s permission. This report was BIDS citizens to confront me about my fake abuse of Belle, who sent me an e-mail a few days before the “THREATS” as Alley calls them. She asked me to set a time for her to come over and model for her. When I found out she concealed her identity form me, I wrote my first article on her and SLEEPS. For Haffner to encourage OUR neighbors to confront me after she showed them the fake abuser report, constitutes CONSPIRACY AGAINST RIGHTS. To say I “need to be locked up” is to deny me due process of law. Also, I have been harassed by neighbors on the common stairwell, they asking;
“Can I help you?”
This is saying I do not belong here, and those who do have the right to confront me. This goes against my lease, saying access to public grounds is not to be impeded. I am seeking a attorney.
I just found this post from two years ago that talks about the Post Office and Alleybelle
Yesterday I sent an e-mail to the French Consulate in San Francisco. I just posted this Don Kahle’s facebook.
“Hello Don! Thanks for being my friend. We have mutual friends. How about mutual enemies? I came upon your article on Alley Valkyrie you wrote last year. Yesterday I sent a e-mail to the French Consulate of SF where in I warn her Alley would not make a good citizen. I want her expelled from France so I can bring Conspiracy charges against her along with my evangelicals neighbors who used a fake abuser report to harass me. News People are under attack. I owe it to my peers to go to the front line.”

Dear Deputy Consulate: Catherine Delfino
“I’m going to make this very simple for you. I don’t know if you know who I am, but I sure as hell know who you are, and when you fuck with my friends, you fuck with me. Stop writing about Belle or I am going to make your life very difficult. I mean it. If I see one more word about her on your blog, your FB, or anywhere else, I will make sure that you experience all the fear and discomfort that she is experiencing right now. And no, this isn’t a physical threat, so don’t try to play victim. Frankly, I encourage you to contact EPD, as they already know all about you. I will not do anything illegal, but mark my word you will regret it if you write one more word about her. I will make sure that the entire community knows exactly how much of a sick fuck you are. Your picture, your name, and “samples” of your writing will be posted on every bulletin board in town. There will not be a single person in the Eugene/Springfield area who won’t know that you’re a sick stalker who leave a young girl alone. Cut it out. Now. This is your first, last, and only warning.”

It’s Belle. Still wondering if you’re real. Thank you again for the bike. Let’s set up a time for me to do some modeling. Thurs and Fri are possibilities for me.
By the way, Why “John Ambrose”? Is that your middle name? Nom de plume? Highly synchronistic, as my current partner’s legal first name is Ambrose. I’m very curious about this.
Also, I thought you preferred to spell your name without the “h”?
Here’s the poem I said I’d send you.
Haven’t read any of your emails yet, will get to that soon.
Don Kahle: Catching up with Alley Valkyrie
Cited for Criminal Trespass After Refusing to Leave City Manager’s Office After Hours
This afternoon, a group of people staged a sit-in at the City Manager’s Office and refused to leave. At 5 p.m., they were advised the office was closed and they indicated their intention to stay. At 5:45 p.m., the group was informed that they would be subject to Criminal Trespass charges if they didn’t leave. Twelve people were cited in lieu of custody and released.
The group was demanding to meet with the city manager regarding homeless issues recently discussed or ruled on by council, outside a council setting. The city manager’s delegate on this issue, Deputy Chief Joe Zaludek, came to the office to meet with them but they did not accept that offer.
Last week, on March 26, the City of Eugene re-posted notices that property is not open to the public and that the clearing and clean-up of the area would begin after April 1. The City Council has directed that the site be closed no later than April 15.
The City’s goal has been for people to leave the site voluntarily and to get connected with the services they need to find safe and legal shelter. The City is coordinating with a number of local social service agencies to help people transition from the camp.
The City Council and City staff have been working to help develop options. There are now two rest stops open – at Garfield and Roosevelt, and Northwest Expressway and Chambers – that are being managed by Community Supported Shelters. The City is continuing to work with community partners to open a third site and hopes to have a signed agreement with a volunteer site manager in the next few days.

She believes the French government may prove to be more supple than America’s. France has had five constitutions and three revolutions over the past two centuries, while America is still working with its original model. She sees a future for herself in France, but there’s just one little problem.
She can’t make any trouble that might hurt her chances of gaining citizenship in a few years, but she won’t stop supporting the causes that animate her.
Alley Valkyrie; ” I will also say that going downtown would be a mistake, as EPD is quite aware of who and what you are, and they have nine uniformed officers downtown. But then again, you said you were going to City Council and you didn’t have the balls to do that, and…See More

Alpha News reporter Preya Samsundar attacked by protesters in Minnesota
Preya Samsundar, a reporter for online media startup Alpha News, was livestreaming at rally outside the Minnesota state capitol building on June 10, 2017, when an anti-fascist protester physically attacked her and damaged her recording device.
Samsundar’s livestream captured part of the altercation.
Near the end of Preya’s over two-and-a-half hour livestream, she speaks with a group of anti-fascist protesters, one of whom asks what news organization she is with and whether it is a right-wing source. At the time, Samsundar was reporting for Alpha News, an online news organization that covers Minnesota politics.
“I cover the news,” she tells the protesters.
One of the protesters repeatedly tells her to leave. She continues filming — “It’s a free country,” she says — and then a man in black baseball cap briefly appears on screen before the picture quickly shudders and momentarily cuts out.
Samsundar described what happened in an article on Alpha News, published June 11, 2017.
“He then grabbed my work phone, which was mounted on a portable selfie-stick, shoved me out of the way and threw the phone several feet away, in front of a line of State Patrol Officers,” she wrote. “The screen was completely shattered, but still recording.”
Samsundar believes that protesters also stole her personal phone, in addition to grabbing and throwing her work phone.
“I had my second phone in my backpack where I kept all of my equipment,” she said. “After I moved away from the group to be a bit safer, I went to look for my personal cell phone to see if I could use it to call my boss. … That’s when I knew it was gone.
After the protest, Samsundar said, some of the anti-fascist protesters followed her to her car after the protest.
“I got into my car and that’s when they surrounded me and my car, started pounding on the windows,” she said, adding the protesters threatened to break her windows if she didn’t leave.
Mitch Berg, a local conservative radio show host, had planned to interview Samsundar after the rally. He said that Samsundar called him and told him that she had been surrounded by protesters angry with her reporting.
“I sent her a Facebook message asking if she could come on the air with me when she got clear of whatever was going on,” Berg told the Freedom of the Press Foundation. “She said she’d try and then she called me when she was going towards her car, and she mentioned she was being followed to her car. I could hear in the background, some yelling and some commotion. … She mentioned, as I recall, her car was surrounded and people were a little too close for comfort, a little too animated for civil society, and she hung up and called me back about ten or fifteen minutes later.”
After the protest, Samsundar filed a police report with the St. Paul police department.
A spokesman for the St. Paul Police Department confirmed the contents of Samsundar’s police report, and told the Freedom of the Press Foundation the case is currently listed as inactive.
“Based on the reports, it looks like the journalist’s personal cell phone was stolen and her work phone (and a selfie stick) were grabbed by a suspect and thrown about 25 to 30 feet, causing its face to crack. A group also followed her to her car, pounded on the vehicle and threatened her as she drove away.
An investigator worked to identify the suspect but was unfortunately able to do so.”
When asked for comment, a spokesperson for the Minnesota State Patrol said simply, “The items reported stolen occurred on a city street, which is St. Paul Police’s jurisdiction.”
After learning about what happened to Samsundar on June 10, Alpha News hired private security for her.
Samsundar said that a bodyguard accompanied her the next time she reported on a protest, but she was still harassed.
“I was being threatened and people came up to me and said I need to behave myself or else,” she said. “The bodyguard with me was like, ‘I don’t want you to get hurt. I want you to be safe, so if you please could just do as little as possible in this situation to make it work that’d be great.’ I was a little bummed because as a journalist I want to talk to these people, find out why they’re here, and I’m being told I can’t.”
Samsundar said that she continued filming the protest march for ten to fifteen minutes, until the harassment escalated and her security guard pulled her back and advised her to leave the protest.
After that experience, Samsundar left journalism. She is now a communications specialist for the Minnesota GOP.
“These guys targeted me from day one once they knew who I was,” she said. “It got to the point where my bosses didn’t want me going out to cover stories because they feared for my safety. It was one reason I changed jobs. If I couldn’t go out and do my job, there was no point.”
Organizers of the June 10 counter-protest did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
