Which party promotes hate speech and violence?

Within a few hours of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, there were attempts by the Left to pin the blame on the Tea Party movement or other conservative entities.  The suspect in the case turned out to be a lunatic who was a big fan of both the "Communist Manifesto" and "Mein Kampf."  Not exactly a right-winger.

Years ago, President Obama encouraged his supporters to establish a thugocracy, and we got a taste of it at the tea party events and town hall meetings in 2009.

A few representatives from the Black Panthers were involved in a voter intimidation incident at a Philadelphia polling place on election day in 2008, and there is no question that the Obama administration approved of it, at least after the fact.

Examples of violence and strife associated with organized labor can be found here.

And then you have the eco-terrorists, who attack chinchilla farms, throw dye on fur coats, burn down legitimate businesses and deliberately disrupt military training and testing, with no condemnation from the Left.  A parallel path is being followed by animal rights activists, who value animals (and in some cases, plants) more than human lives.

The most widespread violence in America today is hardly talked about at all:  It goes by the name of abortion which is a fundamental component of the Democratic Party platform.

Sometimes the militarized police are used as a weapon, in a practice known as SWATting.

Most recently, the election of Donald Trump has prompted a series of violent and destructive riots on the west coast.

There is Nothing 'Imaginary' About Antifa's Legacy of Real Violence.  In June 2019, some 400 anarchists, led by a local Antifa cell, took to the streets of Portland, Oregon shouting "Whose streets?  Our streets?"  Wearing black helmets or masks, the rioters invaded an area known as City of Roses and wreaked havoc.  As the mob destroyed private property and threatened residents and business owners, police officers followed the orders of intimidated elected officials to stand down.  Since that time, Antifa radicals have rioted and looted in over 200 cities.  The results: over 30 dead and at least $2 billion in damages to public and private property.  And as the flames were scorching inner city neighborhoods, the hierarchy of the Democratic Party downplayed the violence claiming the "protests were mostly peaceful," or "an impressive show of democracy in action."

What All Riots, Including America's Today, Have in Common.  With the invention of the steam engine in 1698, the railway in 1804, the steamship in 1807, and the telegraph in the 1830s, industrialized countries became wealthy — and wealth was shared — beyond anything the anarchists of the 1770s could imagine.  That is precisely the point.  Anarchists, then and now, cannot imagine the improvement of living standards that has taken place or is to come.  They revel in destruction because they do not see the good that exists or that is to come.  For them, the good will not come.  They will spend years, if not a lifetime, seeking to destroy the means of productivity they believe to be evil.  Unfortunately, most of our progressive leaders in government share this faithless perspective.  They aren't willing to acknowledge that capitalism has produced such wealth, or that wealth has "trickled down" to workers.  An unskilled laborer in America earned one dollar for a 12-hour day in 1900, or some $300 per year.  An average unskilled worker today earns $40,000 per year.

Are Domestic Terrorists Always on Our Right?  According to leftist columnists and commentators, going back to the 1960s, the real threat of domestic terrorism has always come from the right.  That is not, however, how some of us remember those days.  The most destructive acts of violence in the 1960s were the urban race riots that began in Harlem in July 1964, when 15-year-old black youth James Powell was shot by a police lieutenant.  In 1965, Watts blew up, followed by Newark and Detroit in 1967.  In 1968, 100 U.S. cities exploded in racial violence after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis on April 4.  Anti-war riots followed the urban riots, beginning with an attack on the Pentagon in October 1967 and the occupation of Columbia University in 1968.  That August, leftists ignited a riot at the Democratic Convention that nominated Hubert Humphrey in Chicago.  After President Richard Nixon took office in 1969, a mass anti-war protest in Washington, D.C., spun off a mob that trashed the Department of Justice.  A riot at Kent State in May 1970 precipitated the killing of four students by the Ohio National Guard, and follow-on riots on scores of campuses that shut down higher education for the rest of that spring semester.  That same year, terrorists in a Greenwich Village townhouse blew themselves up with a 2,000-pound bomb they were making to massacre noncommissioned officers and their wives and girlfriends at a dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

RIP, Republican Party.  Over the last year, across the country BLM and Antifa "peaceful protests" erupted into 220 riots, resulting in 30 people being killed, 2,000 police injured, multiple attacks on police stations and federal buildings, public and federal property vandalized, minority communities and businesses destroyed, and portions of cities taken over by force.  And just who was to blame for these deadly Riots?  Not one Democrat politician who voiced their wholehearted support for BLM or any other high profile liberal media or Hollywood type.  And certainly not Joe Biden or Kamala Harris who have the full support of BLM and Antifa.  And what were the consequences for BLM and Antifa as a result of all the riots, death, and destruction?  Community leaders defunded the police.  Leftists media and Democrat politicians applauded and encouraged their actions and encouraged compliance to their cause.  Corporations gave millions to their cause.  Big tech applauded their actions and censored all opposition and condemnation of their actions.

Pearl-Clutchers on Parade.  On the left — literally — we have had nearly eight months of rampaging criminality and violence in the many Democrat-controlled cities in our country, all conducted by thugs belonging to groups called Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  This is the short list of what they have done:
  •   Committed widespread arson, including burning down hundreds of minority-owned businesses in the Latino, Asian and black communities (the black owners clearly didn't matter);
  •   Incinerated cars and burned down buildings, court houses, police stations, et al;
  •   Shot laser beams in the eyes of policemen;
  •   Assaulted civilians, resulting in 30 deaths and thousands of hospitalizations;
  •   Smashed plate-glass windows of numerous businesses, both large and small and then engaged in looting, stealing and grand theft;
  •   Terrorized and then dragged people out of restaurants;
  •   Tore down historic statues, including those of black icons (duh);
  •   Defaced streets and avenues with BLM's block-long, block-lettered, yellow-painted name.
  •   Terrorized the citizenry of entire neighborhoods and towns for months on end;
  •   Attacked people in locked cars;
In all those eight months — 220 days, over 5,000 hours — what was the reaction of Democrats, both elected and civilian?  A thunderous silence.  Not a word of opprobrium or disapproval or condemnation.

Farewell to a Dreadful Year.  [Scroll down]  Then in the summer of 2020, the cities erupted.  Following the death of George Floyd, thousands of people took to the streets (in the midst of a pandemic) to protest "systemic racism," whatever that was.  However, while "mostly peaceful protestors" ran amok, church attendance was strictly limited.  George Floyd, who had a long criminal past, was practically turned into Mother Theresa.  At a time when normal people couldn't have funerals for their family members, Floyd managed to have four.  The violence that fanned out across the country led to a huge spike in crime in New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, and other major cities.  Meanwhile, cancel culture went from tearing down statues and public art to censoring speech.  Suddenly, words or expressions innocently used for decades and centuries, were deemed to have "racist connotations."

The Coming Chaos:  A Primer.  The reason a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate like Joe Biden can call ANTIFA "just an idea" is because it was set up and organized specifically for the purpose of making it difficult to track and understand.  In the aspects of organizing, planning and funding, these groups have been directed and led by '60s and '70s-era radicals who have been evading federal law enforcement for decades.  They use the same "hub and spoke" model of organization that the communists used in Vietnam in order to ensure their leadership stays off the radar of both the public and law enforcement, but they've slipped several times lately showing their hand and revealing the identities of several of their inner-circle planning committee members.  We will address how that model works, but first consider that these "different" groups share the same tactics, uniforms, language, communications and signage on the East Coast that they have on the West Coast and in the Midwest.  They have teams of lawyers and millions of dollars at the ready to defend and bail out their street soldiers at a moment's notice.  They have logistics, pre-positioned piles of bricks, weapons, and even U-Haul trucks full of riot gear and supplies that deliver to the forward lines of their battle space.

Seemingly spontaneous street violence is organized and pursuing a radical political agenda.  [Scroll down]  For starters, the violence is organized criminal activity.  The same destructive activists have been identified at different times in different cities around the country.  For example, in August eight members of the Seattle-based group Riot Kitchen were arrested after wreaking havoc in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Such groups are well supported, as seen in the viral video of a rented U-Haul truck that appeared in Louisville, Kentucky, immediately after the grand-jury verdict was announced in the Breonna Taylor case.  The truck was stocked with riot gear and anti-police banners.  They are well-funded.  In Grand Rapids, Michigan, for instance, the Michigan Solidarity Bail Fund posted $120,000 bail for rioters.  Nationwide, bail funds have received tens of millions of dollars in donations in recent months.  These organized groups have no interest in demonstrating peacefully.  They are showing up intending to commit violence.  In Portland, Oregon, rioters came to the Portland Courthouse armed with fireworks, Molotov cocktails, a circular saw, crowbars, rocks, frozen water bottles and spikes — all instruments for conducting offensive actions.

Revolution 2020.  [Scroll down]  Nothing encourages, amplifies, and seemingly justifies extreme sentiments as does being part of a unanimous chorus, a crowd, a mob.  Success supercharges them.  The Resistance fostered in the ruling class's members the sense that they were more right, more superior, and more entitled than they had ever imagined.  It made millions of people feel bigger, and better about themselves than they ever had.  Ruling class violence started on inauguration day 2017 and grew unceasingly, at first an ominous background to all manner of bureaucratic, oligarchic, and media attacks on the election's winners.  But note well that the black-clad burners and looters were the very opposite of a proletariat and that, Marxist rhetoric aside, they never attacked the wealthy or the powerful — not Wall Street, nor major corporations, certainly not any government, never mind Google, Facebook, or Twitter, America's most powerful monopolies, or corporate officials.  Instead, they received financial contributions from these sources.  The violent ones were as troops in the service of the powerful, out to crush the spirit of rebellious subjects.  Some Marxists!

Eerie parallels between Antifa and the Chinese Cultural Revolution.  If you think the tactics and rhetoric of Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators in America's streets are new, think again.  They're old. [...] This activity 54 years ago happened in Communist China.  The name of the student movement was the Red Guards.  They were inspired and encouraged by the chairman of the Chinese communist party, Mao Zedong.  He dubbed this violent reign of terror the "Cultural Revolution."  The goal of the Cultural Revolution was to eliminate what Mao called the "Four Olds."  The four olds were Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits and Old Ideas — everything that pre-dated communism in China.  Mao saw them as a threat to his communist rule, so he unleashed the Red Guards to eliminate them.  The Four Olds had to be replaced with new customs, new culture, new habits and new ideas — communist customs, communist culture, communist habits and communist ideas.  The Red Guards didn't start out by killing people and destroying property.  They started out with intimidation to back up Mao's cultural revolution to change place names, especially street names.

The Riots:  More Questions than Answers.  As we've watched what has been taking place, a number of obvious questions came to mind:
  •   How can there be any doubt that this an interstate operation?  In city after city, the tactics, banners, clothing, weaponry, etc., have been virtually identical.  Vans with supplies traveling cross-country have been intercepted.  Out-of-state perpetrators have been arrested.  It's obviously being centrally planned and coordinated.
  •   Where do these "local protesters" get their lasers, explosives, military helmets, protective gloves, body armor, and other deadly weaponry?  Someone selects them, orders them, pays for them, and delivers them.  Who instructs them how to use all these things?
  •   Where do they get their guns?  Most of the rioters with guns don't appear to have much experience with firearms.
  •   How do they happen to bring the right "tools" for the job?  For example, the rioters who destroyed the Kenosha, WI, car dealership came with sledgehammer-like hardware to bash in all the car windows and firebombs to set everything on fire.  When confronting police they have lasers to blind them, bricks injure them, and bottles of urine to throw at them.  When breaking into stores they have the weaponry for that.
  •   Who masterminded all this?  The idea of staging riots across America, the large-scale propaganda campaign, and the intense ideology behind it did not suddenly appear when George Floyd died.  It has clearly been in the works for a long time by dedicated radicals.

Democrats Are Trying To Threaten Their Way Into Power.  Remember "Occupy Wall Street"?  That was the "great people's movement" that was going to take down capitalism.  It was a false start.  Plagued with hygiene and sexual assault issues (which, as I reported in 2011, they encouraged victims to handle in-house and avoid police), the stationary mob fell apart.  But they learned from that experience.  Static mobs of mentally unstable people will turn on each other, violently and sexually.  CHOP/CHAZ in Seattle reaffirmed that.  But BLM-ANTIFA realized a roving mob, one that went home or wherever they go, and reconvenes at night, or commutes around the country, won't have as much free time on their hands near others to engage in such "inconveniences."  They were ready to be helpful to the Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party was ready for that help.  In the mess of violence, the immediate target became police, but it still, ultimately is the president.  Police are just a proxy to keep the fire burning until people vote.  That leads us to this new trend on the left: stating plainly that the violence will continue, and probably get worse, unless Donald Trump loses in November.

The Enemy is Within.  Watching Democrat-aligned radicals raze our cities over the past three months has felt like a thousand mini-Pearl Harbors — only the enemy is within and the damage is in our backyards.  While beleaguered Democrats dig their own graves as they prop up the riots, the ordeal has been exhausting, dispiriting, and frustrating for the rest of us.  Evidence of an alliance between Democrats and BLM couldn't be more glaring.  Pernicious riots have persisted, unchallenged, in Democrat strongholds with the imprimatur of untold Democrat mayors, city councils, and governors.  The Democrat media delivers the news with an Orwellian blackout of the word "riot" as our cities immolate before our very eyes.

Biden spokesman cries foul when asked if Biden uses a teleprompter.  [Scroll down]  And for the Democrats, that still wasn't enough.  They used the excuse of a violent ex-felon's overdose-related death to justify mass protests across American cities.  And when Black Lives Matter, the ideological arm of the New Democrat Party, met up with Antifa, the military arm of the New Democrat Party, the misery multiplied as riots and looting spread from city to city.  Minneapolis suffered half a billion dollars in damages, many to black communities, and may take decades to recover.  Tiny Kenosha, Wisconsin, suffered $50 million in damages when a violent accused rapist was shot after fighting with police and appearing to reach for a weapon to use against them.  Portland and Seattle have daily battles going on between police and paramilitary mobs.  Chicago's been through the looting wringer twice now.

39 Photos Capture America's Summer of Riots, Arson, and Looting.  Violent riots and looting have spread like an infectious disease across America in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.  Rioters' demands for justice quickly spiraled into calls to defund police departments across America.  Demonstrators have set businesses on fire, looted shops, and carried out planned attacks against police officers and federal buildings.  Here are 39 photos taken since the end of May, capturing the chaos caused by demonstrators in Portland, Oregon; Seattle; New York City; Chicago; Atlanta; Minneapolis; Richmond, Virginia; Miami; Kenosha, Wisconsin; and the District of Columbia.

Here Are The 269 Companies Who Are Supporting BLM & Antifa.  The full list is below and it includes at least one statement per company: [...]

Antifa Aren't Revolutionaries — They Serve The Powers That Be.  Antifa, short for "anti-fascist," is a far-left movement dedicated to fighting whatever its adherents think is fascism.  It's a loose organization without a clear structure or public leaders.  Its name comes from a Communist-organized group in Weimar Germany.  Unlike their ancestors, most American Antifa would better be described as anarchists rather than Communists.  But it's a mistake to think of Antifa as particularly ideological.  Yes, they are extreme leftists, but what primarily defines them is who they target and the goals advanced by their violence.  And it's not exactly Communism.  Antifa may describe themselves as anti-capitalists, but they don't target capital.  They're not intimidating corporate CEOs or rioting over jobs being shipped overseas.  They don't try to shut down banks or financial institutions.  They focus exclusively on enemies they share with mainstream liberals — Trump supporters, the police, ICE, the "alt-Right," conservatives, etc.  They never seem to go after targets that would draw condemnation from liberal elites.  With the exception of the police and some politicians, they go after powerless people.  It's easy for them to sucker punch a random Trump supporter in the street.  That person's story will never be told in the media and reporters will believe whatever lies Antifa spread about their victims.

What Is the Violence in American Cities All About?  As with most cultural revolutions that wish to start things over at "year zero," the violence is aimed at America's past in order to change its present and future.  The targets are not just the old majority culture but also classical statues and buildings, hallowed institutions, religious icons, the renowned names of streets and plazas, and almost every representation of tradition and authority.  For the majority of Americans who do not buy into the revolution, it all seems so surreal — and hypocritical. [...] The point of the mob is to wipe out what it cannot create.  It topples what it can neither match nor even comprehend.  It would erode the very system that ensures it singular freedom, leisure and historic affluence.  The brand of the anarchist is not logic but envy-driven power: to take it, to keep it, and to use it against purported enemies — which would otherwise be impossible in times of calm or through the ballot box.

The Choice Before Us.  Back at home, left-wing radicals burn Bibles, assault and murder policemen and civilians, set fire to courthouses, vandalize and loot all manner of businesses.  On Friday [7/30/2020], thugs in Portland placed a pig's head on an American flag outside the city's Justice Center.  They put a policeman's cap atop it, doused it with a firestarter, and set it aflame.  The name of George Floyd, the career criminal who died in police custody at the end of May, was at first invoked mantra-like to justify or at least to explain this explosion of savagery.  Now, a couple of months later, there are still ritual invocations of his name but, really, you don't hear too much about Floyd.  The real agenda has come more and more to the fore.  Barack Obama summed it up when he said, in 2008, that he was after the fundamental transformation of the United States of America.  Cities like Portland give us a glimpse of what that transformation would entail.  The clips of the savages burning Bibles put me in mind of Heinrich Heine's solemn observation that Dort wo man Búcher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen:  "Wherever people burn books, they also end up burning men."  It may seem melodramatic, but here is the awful choice we face: the choice between the spirit of mayhem, burning pigs' heads, and burning Bibles, on the one side, and the traditional American spirit that cherishes the rule of law, free expression, and fructifying engines of prosperity, on the other.

Antifa Gives Progressives a Tin-Pot Dictator High.  Antifa, short for the German word antifashistisch, is a congerie of anarchists, socialists, Communists, liberals, and social democrats who disrupt, break, beat, and make it physically impossible for those whom they deem fascists, capitalists, white supremacists, etc. to carry on their activities.  Antifa's slogan is "abolish capitalism, antifascist action, smash fascism."  Their members dress in black, wear masks, and fight under black and red banners.  Footage of their violence is readily available online.  In recent years, similarly violent groups have "occupied" Wall Street, shut down freeways in Chicago and Oakland, California, disrupted Trump's campaign rallies, trashed Washington, D.C. during the 2017 presidential inaugural, and chased conservative speakers from college campuses.

Antifa: Role Playing Cowards.  Antifa, as the name suggests, purports to be an anti-fascist group.  Its members believe that President Trump is trying to push an anti-liberal, anti-socialist, violently exclusionary, expansionist nationalist agenda.  Well, this is simply not the case.  For all the division and acrimony in political debate and online, American society is, by international and historical standards, strikingly liberal and tolerant.  In fact, America has never been safer.  Crime has dramatically fallen over the past decade — both violent and non-violent.  Truly fascist dictatorships suppress individual liberties, imprison opponents, and forbid strikes.  Does this sound like the United States of 2019?

The Liberal War On You.  We are witnessing the death of the liberal political machine that the elite has operated since the end of World War II, and everything that it is doing to conservatives right now — the censorship, the threats, the intimidation, the violence — is proof that it is dying.  These are not the acts of an ideology in ascendance but rather of a scurrilous political paradigm in precipitous decline.  And it's only going to get worse as those losing their grip on political and cultural power desperately try to hold onto it in the face of our populist revolt.  Be prepared.  It's going to get uglier.

Sanctimony in politics leads to violence.  Violence by Antifa thugs in Portland, Oregon, this weekend — while police stood by and watched — is the result of the holier-than-thou approach to politics of Democrats.  Liberals created and fostered this atmosphere by branding the opposition as evil in 2016.  Topping the list were Hillary's basket of deplorables speech and Biden calling supporters of Donald John Trump the dregs of society.  Portraying their opponents as subhuman ogres gave license to their brownshirt brigade to attack Trump supporters, and the Antifa thugs have.

Hundreds of Examples of Anti-Trump Violence Committed by Liberals.  In the wake of the recent pipe bomb scares targeting liberal public figures, the narrative that President Donald Trump's rhetoric is inciting extremism went into overdrive.  Indeed, those who said nothing about "toxic rhetoric" when Steve Scalise was nearly shot to death are now happy to pretend that it's only Trump that has inflammatory rhetoric.  The horse blinders truly are on those liberal pundits — as they've managed to ignore literally dozens of examples of both physical attacks and threats of violence against Republicans earlier in October.

639 Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters.  When not calling Trump supporters "Nazis" as a means to dehumanize us, the establishment media like to whine about the lack of civility in American politics, even as they cover up, ignore, downplay, or straight-up approve of the wave of violence and public harassment we are seeing against supporters of President Trump.  It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more.  The media are now openly calling Trump supporters "Nazis" and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with.  This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and justifies mob violence.

The Left's Accusation That The Right Is Fascist Is Simply Psychological Projection.  [Scroll down]  Antifa is politics as performative recreation — cosplay and LARPing livened by harassment, vandalism, and moderate violence.  The tactics Williamson observed in Portland, "marching through the streets chanting the usual obscenities... blocking traffic, engaging in the casual lawlessness now associated with this city," are not those of hardened revolutionaries and resistance fighters, but of perpetual adolescents staving off ennui.  They are not much of a threat.  The police could quickly clear them out if the feckless city leadership gave them permission, and if the GOP really were fascists then the black-mask LARPers would have been long dead.  Portland still harbors many well-armed Republicans, some of whom possess enough firepower to singlehandedly gun down all of Antifa.  The danger of Antifa is not that they will do much damage themselves, but that they will normalize political violence for those who would be good at it.  Real political violence is a dreadful thing, and those who yearn for it are ignorant, depraved, or both.  The bitterness of civil conflict and war is driven not only by cruelty, ideological fervor, and vengeance, but also by fear.

The Rhetorical Art of Blame-Laying.  As a public service, here are some things that are in no way responsible for creating a "climate of political violence" in the United States:
  •   Public performances of plays that depict the execution of Trump-like figures.
  •   Publishing a Trump assassination fantasy in the New York Times. [...]
  •   The recent use of violent rhetoric by presidents on the left: for example, when Barack Obama advises supporters to oppose opponents by saying if "they bring a knife, we bring a gun."
  •   The media's valorization of virtue-signaling celebrities who make threats against the president's family, disparage his supporters, encourage public violence, or create violent images like the mock-decapitation of the president.
  •   Antifa's (and associated groups') violent responses to peaceful exercises of conservative speech in public spaces.
  •   Leftists running high-profile conservatives out of restaurants.
  •   Maxine Waters' encouragements of those who would use violent methods to signify their opposition to the Trump Administration.
  •   Hillary Clinton's call for a hiatus on civility until Democrats regain control of the government. [...]

Media pretend left-wing mobs of protesters aren't really mobs.  Journalists spent last week rewriting history as it happened and denying the thuggery of left-wing protests.  It was like watching a reality TV version of "1984."  President Trump helped get the show rolling when he called left-wing protesters "an angry mob" and Republicans and conservative groups picked up the term.  It was repeated in several videos and in a key GOP commercial that highlighted scenes of violence.  The scenes in the commercial included:  the rioting and arson that took place protesting President Trump's inauguration; attacks on Trump campaign events; harassment of members of Congress; and protesters pounding on the Supreme Court doors to object to the Senate confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  This was all more than the media could stand and they spent the week trying to disprove reality.

Of Course The Liberal Mob Is Real.  Expect the mob to continue to rage, well-funded and emboldened by the passive encouragement from their leaders.  But a word of warning, if you are vocal with your politics you should keep your head on a swivel.  Any child lacking discipline will inevitably test boundaries and cross lines, but a child is one person and will eventually tire.  A mob feeds off itself, off its members, and people in a group will go much further than any of them would alone.  In other words, no matter how insistent the likes of Don Lemon Brooke Baldwin are that they don't exist, the mob is here for the foreseeable future.  And it's only going to get worse.

The Rise of the Dazis and Mob Rule.  Antifa acts as a military wing of the Democrat Party, the media acts as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, a shadow government is installed by the Democrat Party to act as a foil to the Republican Party, including sabotaging the government apparatus in order to remain in power despite the outcome of elections.  This is a shadow government, impervious to the will of the people.  But, none of this will result in an actual overthrow of the government, it can only manipulate the current government into suicidal policies. 

Why the Left Is Consumed With Hate.  Even before President Trump's election, hatred had begun to emerge on the American left — counterintuitively, as an assertion of guilelessness and moral superiority. [...] For many on the left a hateful anti-Americanism has become a self-congratulatory lifestyle.  "America was never that great," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently said.  For radical groups like Black Lives Matter, hatred of America is a theme of identity, a display of racial pride.  For other leftists, hate is a license.  Conservative speakers can be shouted down, even assaulted, on university campuses.  Republican officials can be harassed in restaurants, in the street, in front of their homes.  Certain leaders of the left — Rep. Maxine Waters comes to mind — are self-appointed practitioners of hate, urging their followers to think of hatred as power itself.  How did the American left — conceived to bring more compassion and justice to the world — become so given to hate?

Death to the Rule of Law.  [Scroll down]  Fast forward to today.  Well over 500 — and growing daily — documented incidents of leftist violence against supporters of our legally, duly elected president, Donald J. Trump.  The attacks have all been unprovoked.  Period.  Attacks, too, on the police all over the country have increased exponentially.  However, what should concern Americans the most is the growing number of Democrat politicians complicit in the violence.  The most recent is the far left Democrat mayor of Portland, Oregon, Ted Wheeler, who refused to give police protection from violent protesters outside the federal building housing the ICE offices in Portland.  Under his leadership, Portland has become a safe home for Antifa and the scene of now-predictable violent attacks on Americans exercising their 1st Amendment rights.

This isn't culture war.  It's worse.  [Scroll down]  Unlike the prog caricature of us, we're responsible people.  When we gather in large numbers, you almost can't tell we were ever there because we clean up behind ourselves.  We speak quietly and respectfully, treat our women like ladies, and control our kids.  Nobody fears normals because nobody has any reason to.  This contrasts starkly with progs, who gather in large numbers to riot, scream obscenities, carry signs, and trash the place.  They get up in others' faces and scream and rage as if out of control, sometimes putting a normal person in fear for his life.  All this is intended to communicate public unhappiness over this issue or that, but all it really puts across is that a bunch of wilding lunatics are loose again.  Liberals, similar to but reputedly more reasonable than progs, always notice the single MAGA hat in a crowd but never the destructive prog behavior raging all around them.  And it's liberals who write the columns and tweets next day, dripping venom about the hateful normals.

The Top 50 Liberal Media Bias Examples.  [#26] Occupy Wall Street:  The media fell in love with Occupy Wall Street protests from the second they began.  All reportage on these violent, crime-filled events has been suffused with a touch of sweetness and light by the media.  Unreported has been the over 400 crimes committed by Occupiers not to mention the many thousands of small laws like local ordinances and rules that have been broken across the country.  At these Occupy events we've seen rapes, thefts, rampant property destruction, drug abuse, some gun violence, even deaths have occurred at these protests.  Yet the media is reticent to cover these crimes.  This is a kindness the media never extended to the Tea Party movement.

Assertions Of Ownership.  It's my practice to take a strong line with leftists, regardless of the subject.  They dislike that, and do their best to shout me down.  As it happens, I can't be shouted down; I have a bull elephant roar that causes cancer in laboratory rats and kills canaries outright.  Beyond that, I usually possess the evidence required to support my stances.  They don't.  The Left's claims to "own" an issue are attempts to preclude rational examination of it for precisely that reason.  As Victor Marguerite once wrote, "The Fascists cannot argue, so they kill."  But of course!  If you can't prevail by the rules of reasoned discussion, abandon the rules.  Prevail by intimidation or coercion.  That's what would-be totalitarians have done throughout history.  While the Left hasn't yet resorted to murder on any noticeable scale, the threshold for that sort of "response" is drawing near.

From Conspiracy Theories to Conspiracies.  [D]id anyone believe that in the year 2017 the losing side in an American election would immediately dub itself the "Resistance" — channeling the World War II nomenclature of the guerrilla campaign against the Nazi occupation of France?  Or that the defeated candidate Hillary Clinton would formally embrace the imagery of liberationist patriots fighting a Nazi-like Trump's occupation of the United States?  One ingredient for removing a president would entail a nonstop effort by the opposition to use the courts, the legislative branch, the investigatory agencies, and the administrative state to discredit, undermine, and remove an elected government.

Explaining the Narcissistic Rage of the Left.  How to account for the scorched-earth hatred of Donald Trump?  He inspires a darkly fanatical dislike, disapproval, and disgust in his most ardent detractors.  He is a distillation for millions of unhappy Americans of all things repugnant, repulsive, and wretched.  The fever pitch at which he has been mocked, ridiculed, condemned, and threatened is beyond anything anyone in living memory has been subject to — let alone a sitting American president.  From Colbert's "holster" to Madonna's fantasy of blowing up the White House to Kathy Griffin's decapitation stunt, and De Niro's thug life wish to "punch him in the face," the gloves are most certainly off — if only to better grasp a bludgeon.  And that's just the celebrities.  Even a state senator from Missouri hoped for Trump's assassination on Facebook.

The Best Quotes of 2017.  [#2]  "It's tough to have a multicultural society with people who want you dead."

Judicial Anarchism.  [Scroll down]  History is full of examples where the ruling class either lost control or lost the moral authority to maintain control.  Every revolution in history follows this model to some degree.  What we are seeing in modern America is a strange combination of how order breaks down in a society.  The American ruling class is coming to the conclusion that the rules really don't work for them.  They don't have the will or ability to simply toss them aside and impose a new order, but they refuse to allow the old rules to limit their power.

Leftist police chiefs and leftist rioters — a dangerous combination
  •   In April 2015, when rioters took the streets of Baltimore to protest Freddie Gray's death, the police were told to stand down.  Progressive mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake famously (or infamously) stated openly, "We gave those who wished to destroy space to do that."
  •   In February 2017, when violent rioters stopped Milo Yiannapoulos from speaking on the Berkeley campus and then took to the streets, although the cops assembled, they did not act.  Subsequent orders were that they were told to stand down.  It came to light later that Berkeley's mayor was a member of an Antifa Facebook group.
  •   In August 2017, in Charlottevilles, Virginia, after fascists from the Left and fascists from the Right clashed, leading a schizophrenic to use a car as a weapon, it emerged that the Democrat mayor had given the police orders to stand down — even though it was apparent that both sides in this pond scum protest came ready to do violence.
Do you see a pattern?

The Coming Violence of the Left.  [Scroll down]  Again, the trend you see with this cargo cult is that it is women out front, trying to push for violence and bloodshed.  This is similar to what happened in the radical groups of the 60's and 70's.  Many of the most violent members of the Black Panthers were women.  The Weather Underground was led by a women, Bernardine Dohrn.  The radicalism of the 1960's was initially led by males, but in time women took over and it became more violent and less coherent.  Once again, the arrival of SJW's signals the end phase.  There's something else going on today.  Antifa is largely a cargo cult.  They dress up like radicals and perform public events like the radicals of 50 years ago, all in the hope that the past will become the present.  Unlike the past, there's no reactionary counter to the modern Progressive.  No one is putting fire hoses on Lefty or having the cops break up Antifa's protests.  The people in charge are funding groups like Antifa.

Here is Why the Violence is Going to Escalate, And Escalate Quickly.  There is no comparable list of "alt-right" protests.  Though there have been some, there have not been as many.  The violence at these events has included molotov cocktails, shattered windows, punches thrown, and public property destroyed.  Last night, a group of leftwing activists tore down a confederate statue without permission.  But in pointing all of this out, prominent voices on the left will angrily reply that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, union goons, etc. are all working for equality, justice, or some other noble end.  They will wave away legitimate comparisons between the alt-left and alt-right providing moral justification for the left.  There have been far more conservatives willing to call out the alt right than there have been progressives calling out the alt-left.

The War of the Hyphens.  The riots in Charlottesville reflect the breakdown of the Narrative, which has been the subject of several past posts.  What happened on the street has been a long time coming on the Internet.  The bonds of trust are breaking down.  Reputation and authority are no longer recognized outside of a membership group.  The personal, already political, finally became commercial.  Some companies have flatly refused to serve those whose views they disapprove of.  Political views are becoming conditions of employment.  Some national political leaders are proposing explicit "litmus tests" to sort people according to virtue.  Now cars are ramming into people.  The riots and death in Charlottesville are the physical manifestation of the idea of separateness.  If the thought is the father of the deed, the children of hate, the offspring of "by any means necessary" and the scions of superiority so long in gestation, are finally being born.

One Day.  There is a moment when a government becomes so corrupt that it can no longer be tolerated by the people and I suggest that we are there.  It is much more openly corrupt today than it has ever been.  The Democrat Party is literally at war with the Republican President, not just angry at him, not just disappointed they didn't win, they have decided that he cannot be president.  Well, what does that mean?  When has that ever been true in American political history?  It is exactly the reaction they found incomprehensible when they accused Trump of refusing to recognize the election if he lost.

15 Times Celebrities Envisioned Violence Against Trump and the GOP.  [T]he level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin's now-famous shock "beheading" photograph to Shakespeare in the Park's not-at-all-subtle "assassination" of Trump on a stage in New York City's Central Park.  Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP lawmakers for at least the past 18 months.

Remember the professor who said Republicans should be executed?  [W]e would be foolish if we did not address the festering anti-Trump cancer that has infected the left.  What about the D-list comedian who beheaded the president or the taxpayer-funded production called, "Killing Republicans" or the Shakespearean drama where Caesar was depicted as President Trump?  What about the high school teacher who made a bet on whether the president would be assassinated or the one who pretended to execute the president inside her classroom?  Or how about the professor who said Republicans must be executed and the president must hang?  Or the other professor who said House Republicans should be lined up and shot?

Bernie Sanders Incitement Video:  "Fight... Push Them Back... Take Action... Fight... Revolution".  Dispatched by James Woods, this Bernie Sanders video represents incitement, pure and simple.  His language makes his aims clear:  Fighting.  Action.  Revolution.  All the typical hallmarks of socialist, leftist, Marxist and Communist agitation.  Saul Alinsky was a mentor and inspiration for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.  One of Alinsky's key tenets:  Change is brought about through relentless agitation and "trouble making" of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.  Another is:  There can be no conversation between the organizer and his opponents.  The latter must be depicted as being evil.  Still another is:  Politics is all about power relations, but to advance one's power, one must couch one's positions in the language of morality.

Incitement to Violence.  Democrats may be horrified by today's attempted massacre of the GOP House baseball team by an avowed progressive, but their incendiary demands for "massive resistance" since November have been an open plea for the escalation of words into violent action.  The daily repetition that President Trump is an illegitimate usurper who stole the election through collusion with foreign powers has been a hypnotic incantation in search of an Oswald:  a siren call for an assassin.

The Trump-hating Left's descent into Pornoviolence.  Having failed to prevent the election of Donald Trump, having failed to prove Russia collusion allegations against him, having failed to impeach him — the left is now turning to assassination fantasies, some say in the hope of getting one deranged lunatic to act on them.

The Roots of Left-Wing Violence.  There is currently, on the streets, smashing storefronts and setting things on fire, a group called "Antifa," for "anti-fascist."  Antifa are not a new phenomenon; they surfaced during the Occupy movement, and during the anti-globalization protests of the late 1990s and early 2000s.  Antifa movements began in early-20th-century Europe, when fascism was a concrete and urgent concern, and they remain active on the Continent.  Lately, Antifa have emerged as the militant fringe of #TheResistance against Donald Trump — who, they maintain, is a fascist, ushering into power a fascist regime.  In Washington, D.C., Antifa spent the morning of Inauguration Day lighting trash cans on fire, throwing rocks and bottles at police officers, setting ablaze a limousine, and tossing chunks of pavement through the windows of several businesses.

Let's Talk of the Democrat's Long History of Political Violence.  We can go back to the beginnings of the Democrat Party where violence at the polls was a typical occurrence in every election.  We can point to the span of nearly 200 years where Democrats used violence to maintain political power over both whites and blacks alike.  We have the decades of the slave power keeping all in line with its roving gangs of enforcers, we have an entire civil war initiated by Democrats during which nearly a million Americans died, and we have a hundred years of Jim Crow and KKK armies all fueled by the Democrat Party.  Yes, there is all that.  But we don't have to go back 200 years, 100 years, or even 50 years.  We can just look back at the entirety of the last 20 years where Democrats, Bernie Sanders supporters, black lives matter ruffians, Occupy Wall Street criminals, and your general left-wing lunatic in our colleges and we will see that political violence is the left's stock and trade.  Yet, there has never been any mediot out there who felt the need to condemn the constant violence emanating from the left.  When members of the Black Panthers carry clubs to the polls, when violence erupts in Berkeley, when leftists destroy property during riots in Ferguson, when liberals deliver bodily harm to Republicans, the liberal media is utterly silent on the topic of political violence.

Will the Second Civil War Turn Violent?  In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War.  The deep chasm that has opened up between the left — not liberals, the left — and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way to describe what is happening.  But I noted that at least thus far, unlike the First Civil War, this war is not violent.  Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that violence is coming.  In fact, it's already here.  But as of now, it's only coming from one direction.  Left-wing thugs engage in violence and threats of violence with utter impunity.  They shut down speakers at colleges; block highways, bridges and airport terminals; take over college buildings and offices; occupy state capitals; and terrorize individuals at their homes.

Should We Hit Reporters and How Hard?  Whether it is murderers slaughtering police officers after listening to instigating rhetoric from Barack Obama and Black Lives Matter... or college students assaulting conservative speakers after years of listening to leftist professors define conservative language as violence... whether it's a Democratic congressman throttling a student journalist while the media pretty much lets it slide... or a dressed-up-as-mommy loon laying hands on Ben Shapiro while lefty commentators cheer... or whether it's a Republican congressional candidate body-slamming a reporter from a socialist newspaper who had himself expressed a desire to punch a conservative reporter... I tend to come down pretty solidly against people physically attacking one another.

BLM Protester:  "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  Video footage from Black Lives Matter and left-wing riots in Bellevue, Washington this week shows a female agitator repeatedly shrilling, "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  Other rioters also chime in to voice agreement with the insurrectionist, black supremacist narrative.  "I can't wait until black people hang you!" the protester screams at an onlooker, who is caught off guard and says, "Wait, what was that?  Do you want to say it again?"  "Um yeah," the female agitator responds, taking a deep breath before bellowing, "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  [Video clip]

One Year After Chicago Looting, Most Suspects Draw Probation Over Jail.  They were troubling images:  marauding gangs of looters roaming Chicago and the suburbs, smashing windows, stealing merchandise and wreaking havoc with little regard for who might be watching.  But a year later, an analysis of court records by NBC 5 Investigates indicates only a few dozen cases have made it through the courts, and only a handful have drawn terms in prison.

Former police chief:  If we lose the rule of law, we are going to lose America — and we're just about there.  The FBI is only one component of law enforcement, and the one which clearly isn't doing its job.  Meanwhile local and state police, trying to keep a handle on the unhinged anarchy and chaos taking place in their communities, are being undermined by political hack district attorneys, who have implemented policies which release criminals before the ink on arrest reports is even dry.  These policies however are those being embraced by Democratic politicians led by the current occupant of the White House, Joe Biden.  What we are witnessing in cities such as Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York will become the way of life in American cities if Democrats get their way.  Most suburban Democrats don't seem to care what happens in the cities, as long as it isn't occurring in THEIR city or town.  But what happens if this chaos leaves city streets and moves to the suburbs?

Driver Beaten Badly After Armed BLM Stop His Car in Frightening Encounter.  Over the past year, we've seen some very violent and/or out-of-control encounters because of the dangerous habit that the BLM has trying to block the street and stop drivers from going through a 'protest' area.  We reported on an incident in Plano, Texas, where there was an armed standoff and the police seemed more disturbed with the driver than they were the crazies blocking all the cars in the road.  But, that was just one of many.  BLM does this all over the country.  On Thursday afternoon [5/6/2021] in Portland, they severely injured a handyman, Joseph Hall, who was unlucky enough to turn into a street where one of their 'protests' was, according to the NY Post.  Hall said he was coming home from a repair job nearby when he was cut off by a moped.  Then the moped followed him and the BLM folks converged to stop his truck to cut off his truck.  As you can see from the video, multiple BLM folks were armed.

BLM Protesters Pull AR-15 And AK-47 On Motorists During Protest In Portland.  Portland, Oregon.  Thursday, the 13th of October.  Police have been called to investigate a group of protesters blocking traffic in North Portland at the intersection of N Vancouver and N Sacramento St.  The protest was for Patrick Kimmons, who allegedly died after being shot by police last year during a late-night shootout in North Portland.  Protesters blocked traffic and began getting aggressive when one driver with a pickup truck tries to get through the blockage.  Several protesters are seen with AR-15s and AK-47s aimed at the driver, demanding the driver get out of the car.  A mini van's tires seemed to have been slashed and the back window smashed out.  [Video clip]

Man Held at Gunpoint and Beaten by Portland's Antifa/BLM Terrorists Talks From Hospital Trauma Center.  The first question a Portland police officer asked the man beaten and held at gunpoint by antifa and Black Lives Matter "protesters" on a city street on Wednesday was "what did you do to agitate the crowd?"  And that tells you everything about why militant thugs run the streets of Portland with impunity.  The cops blame the victims.  Worse, victims who dare defend themselves become the bad guys.  Joe Hall is a former Marine and handyman, who currently lays his head in a Portland hospital trauma unit.  He's laid up with broken ribs, four fractured vertebrae, a dislocated shoulder, a partially collapsed lung, and a broken eye socket from when he was kicked in the face while he was down.

Jury convicts Florida man who issued 'call to arms' against Trump supporters.  A Florida man who in January called for people to surround Trump supporter at at rally has been found guilty on charges of threatening to kidnap or injure others.  Daniel Baker was convicted Thursday after issuing a "call to arms" for others on Jan. 20 to confront supporters of then-President Trump whom Baker said would storm Florida capitol that day.  "Armed racist mobs have planted the Confederate flag in the nations [sic] Capitol while announcing their plans to storm every American state Capitol on or around inauguration day," Baker wrote on Facebook on the "Defend Tallahassee" page, which he created, on Jan. 12, according to The Epoch Times.

New Jersey Police Officer Fired For Calling BLM Protesters "Terrorists".  We have been discussing the termination of public employees and others for their postings on social media or public displays.  The latest case is out of New Jersey where former Hopewell Township police officer Sara Erwin was fired recent over a June 2020 posting on Facebook in which she referred to Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters as "terrorists."  There remains an uncertain line of what political or social views are tolerated and what are barred on social media.  Indeed, Sgt. Mandy Gray was suspended and demoted for simply liking the June 2020 post.  Gray was the first female officer hired in Hopewell Township and became the first female sergeant in 2019, according to NJ.com.  Erwin insists that she posted the statement after she and her colleagues were faced with violent protests and family members who were traumatized by images on television of officers being attacked.

Heavily Armed Antifa Militia In Portland Stop Traffic, Assault Driver At Gunpoint While He Attempts To Defend Himself.  A heavily armed anarchist militia in Portland stopped traffic and assaulted a driver at gunpoint while he attempted to defend himself.  A video from Portland, Oregon, posted on Twitter Thursday showed armed Antifa activists assaulting a driver after threatening him with firearms in broad daylight while blocking traffic.  At two separate points, multiple participants pulled AR-15s, AK-47s, pistols, and possibly a shotgun and/or Keltec Sub 2000 on motorists who happened to be driving along.  [Video clips and photos]

Democrat problems in Texas compound after Democratic county leader called Sen. Tim Scott an 'oreo'.  Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina made an unusual splash with his response to Joe Biden's quasi-State of the Union address, declaring — with the weight of his life experience in the real Jim Crow era in comparison to today — that America "is not a racist country." [...] Ordinarily, people pay attention to the president's speech, not the rebuttal.  But Scott's rebuttal is what got the attention.  The left was vile, spewing out a slew of racist epithets against Scott for his "heresy."  When Scott said America wasn't racist, they sought to prove him wrong — by hurling every racist epithet they could think of at him, as if to prove him wrong by showing them their own stripes.  "Uncle Tim," "Boy," and pictures of Al Jolson in blackface were just some of the disgusting things I saw on Twitter, all of them posted by leftists.

Most Portland rioters have charges dismissed by US Attorney: 58 suspects of the 97 arrested have cases scrapped, while 32 more are left pending.  The majority of the people facing federal charges over last summer's protests in Portland, Oregon will not be prosecuted or spend any time at all behind bars, it haas been revealed.  Although 97 people were arrested and had charges filed against them in connection to protests that took place between May and October of last year, 58 cases have either been dismissed completely or will be scrapped under deferred resolution agreements.  A further 32 cases are also pending with many also likely to be dismissed, Fox News reports.

Pennsylvania Native, 29, Stabbed Dead By Seattle Neighbor For Not Wearing Face Mask.  A Pennsylvania native was stabbed to death near his Seattle-suburb home on Sunday [5/2/2021], according to police in Washington.  John Huynh, 29, formerly of Ephrata, was stabbed in the heart following a disagreement with a neighbor — over wearing a face mask — according to charging documents filed in King County Superior Court.  Huynh, two friends and his wife walked out of the Villas at Beardslee apartments in Bothell shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday, according to court documents.

Armed and Eating:  BLM/Antifa Stumble Into Bad Situation.  A group of angry BLM/Antifa protesters marched in front of Churchill Downs ahead of the 147th Kentucky Derby Saturday, chanting Breonna Taylor's name.  After a few minutes of continuing the march down Bardstown, some of the protesters began harassing diners at La Chasse.  As the protesters, some wearing body armor, moved into the outdoor dinning area and confronting those sitting, a man eating on the restaurant's patio pulled a gun while his associate argued with a clearly hostile protester.  [Video clip]

Antifa Floods The Streets Of Paris On May Day, Destroying Everything.  Hooded, black-clad demonstrators clashed with police in Paris on Saturday as thousands of people joined traditional May Day protests across France to demand social and economic justice and voice their opposition to government plans to change unemployment benefits.  Police made 46 arrests in the capital, where garbage bins were set on fire and the windows of a bank branch were smashed, momentarily delaying the march.  [Video clip]

BLM/Antifa Rioters Attack A Car During "May Day Protests".  The police in Seattle, Washington, said 14 people were arrested there when the May Day demonstrations saw protesters block traffic and clash with police.  Q13Fox reported that the group blocked traffic and put hazards — including flares — in the street.  The group threw bottles, flares, rocks, paint-filled eggs at police officers, according to police.  Those arrested faced charges ranging from assault to property destruction.  Police said at least one bystander was "pelted" by eggs on the street.  One individual was arrested for allegedly throwing a rock through an open police car window.  The driver was hit, the Q13Fox report said.  A video that was sent to USA Supreme by one of our fans who wished to stay anonymous shows a pretty efficient way to clear the intersections when BLM/Antifa rioters are in town.  [Video clip]

Trump supporter reveals Northern Calif.  Antifa hit list.  A Northern California chapter of Antifa got their plans foiled by a loyal supporter of President Trump.  On Thursday, the Trump supporter revealed documents, messages and recordings he accessed by infiltrating a far-left Antifa group in Sonoma County.  The leader of the Antifa chapter is said to be a 25-year-old college student who was arrested in 2020 for assaulting a police officer.  Furthermore, another member made shocking comments when discussing a potential Saturday, May 1 "May day" protest.  "It's May day baby, it's May day," the leader, dubbed Marb, said during a meeting.  "Come out and take something over with us.  Let's kill people!"  "Let's kill people!  Let's kill some cops," another member laughed along.

This man infiltrated and spent a year behind Antifa lines, and they have plans.  Antifa isn't a bogeyman or a figment or an idea or the D-Day troops, as the mainstream press would have you simultaneously believe.  They are "very real," says the man who infiltrated and spent a year recording and documenting one cell in California.  "And they're a big threat.["]  This video from ABC7 in San Francisco is amazing both on account of it showing their murderous hate and ill intent, and in the fact that it exists from a press outlet at all.

May Day has morphed from celebration of worker's rights to violence, says historian.  Police departments across the state have been preparing for May Day for weeks.  May 1 is known as International Workers Day, but in recent years the day has ended in cities like Portland with arrests, fires and destruction.  Police departments like the Portland Police Bureau and the Salem Police Department put out statements ahead of the day as a warning for what could be seen in their cities.  Local historians say destruction from recent May Days doesn't connect with the actual history of the day.  "May Day means something.  It's a memorial in a way to those who lost their lives in the 19th century fighting for something so simple as the eight-hour day.  It's easy to forget that," said Marc Rodriquez, a history professor at Portland State University.

BLM-Antifa Rioters Target Upscale Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.  BLM and/or Antifa goons targeted an upscale restaurant in Louisville restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky this evening.  The patrons were having none of it as they faced the mob and taunted them like, 'Come on, Let's go!" [...] Some tweets are coming out of Kentucky tonight indicating BLM and Antifa are in full force again.  It's spring so the rioters are gonna riot.  Noticeably none were wearing Trump hats.

Why Is the Left Allowed to Be 'Transphobic' and Racist?  Last week, I asked why there was no uproar from LGBTQ activists when Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner was "misgendered" and mocked by the left after announcing that he would run for governor of California.  (In reality, some of the mocking came from LGBTQ activists, who painted Jenner as a fame-hungry reality TV star.)  And where was the uproar when Bill Maher questioned the "born that way" dogma, stating, "Wasn't always sure about the man-woman thing, but low capital gains taxes — born that way."  To be sure, there were some scattered voices of protest, but not a fraction of what would have happened had the mockery been pointed towards someone like Richard "Rachel" Levine, President Biden's appointee as assistant secretary for Health and Human Services.  But all that pales in comparison to some of the attacks on Sen. Tim Scott after he responded forcefully to Biden's address to Congress on Wednesday night.

Working-class people of color hate the riots the lefty elite keeps cheering.  When Americans fight about race or culture, the fight is almost always really about social class.  And that shows up in today's discussions about riots and policing.  The Daily Caller recently sent a video correspondent to Brooklyn Center, Minn., scene of many police-shooting-related riots, and to Washington, DC, home of America's ruling class, and asked people in both places when and if rioting was justified.  The answers differed sharply.  In Brooklyn Center, where the destruction was visible first-hand, respondents (nearly all black men of various ages) overwhelmingly opposed rioting.  An African-American man in an "Army Veteran" hat commented:  "We're human, and we want to be treated with respect," but we also need to show "respect."

Auburn man arrested for alleged threats to kill Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.  Seattle police arrested a 43-year-old man for harassment after leaving a voicemail for Mayor Jenny Durkan in which he allegedly stated he wanted to kill her.  Court documents identify the suspect as Rashidi Slaughter of Auburn.  Detectives were told Tuesday the suspect left a voicemail at the mayor's office earlier that morning.  They were able to identify the man, determining the call was made from Auburn.  "It just shows again that we're in a very difficult troubled time right now, and this is just another thing that many officials face," Durkan said about the voicemail.

Minnesota Man Fined $12 Million For Police Station Fire At George Floyd Protest.  A Minnesota man has been fined $12 million for helping set fire to a police station during a protest last summer following the death of George Floyd.  Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 23, pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to commit arson.  He was accused of lighting a Molotov cocktail that another person threw at the Third Precinct headquarters in Minneapolis.  He now faces four years in prison and a whopping fine for the damages to the police station — a penalty Robinson's lawyer argues he will never be able to pay.

The Editor says...
[#1] He may never pay the entire fine, but he can pay as much as he can, and perhaps some of his anarchist buddies will learn from his experience.  On the other hand, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy, which means someone else was involved, so why can't the other(s) involved share the cost?  [#2] Perhaps he will be pardoned by President Chelsea Clinton or President Jenna Bush.

In Chilling Video, Antifa Doxes, Threatens to KILL Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.  Late last week Portland, Ore., Mayor Ted Wheeler took to video to plea for the community's help to "unmask" antifa.  The violence-prone anarchist-fascist group has terrorized Portland with months of violent and destructive insurrectionist riots despite Joe Biden merely calling antifa an "idea."  Someone purporting to represent antifa has responded to Wheeler with a new video.  In this video, the masked individual pushes anti-American themes and publishes Wheeler's home address.  The individual finishes the disturbing presentation with a veiled threat to kill Mayor Wheeler.  [Video clip]

Brainerd man who helped burn MPD 3rd Precinct sentenced to 4 years in prison, owes $12M in restitution.  A Brainerd man has been sentenced for his role in the arsons committed at the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct building last year.  According to the United States Attorney's Office District of Minnesota, 23-year-old Dylan Shakespeare Robinson will serve four years (48 months) in prison.  As part of his sentencing, he will also serve two years of supervised release and owe $12 million in restitution.  Court documents state on the night of May 28, 2020, Robinson went to the Third Precinct where a crowd of hundreds had gathered.  At one point, the crowd began shouting, "Burn it down, burn it down."  Soon after, a fence that was designed to keep people out of the building was torn down.  Robinson, along with other co-conspirators, breached the fence and entered the building.  Robinson lit an object held by the unidentified co-conspirator who threw it toward the Third Precinct building with the intent that it would start a fire or fuel an existing fire.

Puyallup church cancels conservative speaker event, cites potential threats.  An East Pierce County church has canceled an event featuring a politically conservative activist after the senior pastor said police warned him groups opposed to the event were targeting the pastor and members of the congregation.  Motion Church's senior pastor, the Rev. Roger Archer, told The News Tribune the Puyallup Police Department and FBI contacted him about safety concerns over a planned appearance by Charlie Kirk.  The Puyallup Police Department did not return requests for comment from The News Tribune.

State of emergency declared in North Carolina as protests continues.  Hundreds of protesters took to the streets on Monday, April 26 to protest the shooting and call for the release of body-camera footage over Andrew Brown Jr.'s death in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.  Elizabeth City Mayor Bettie Parker declared a state of emergency in preparation for outrage of the public.  [Video clip]

WaPo Writer Doesn't Get Concerns About Driving Near Protesters, Here's an Explainer.  Washington Post opinion writer Radley Balko tweeted that he didn't quite get why some people were so worried about "inadvertently driving near a protest, getting stuck in front of a wall of protesters, then getting pulled out of their car and beaten."  [Tweet]  In his tweet, he referenced a ridiculous article from "The New Republic" which claimed Republicans wanted the "right to crash cars into people" and that Republicans were endorsing a "terroristic tactic" against "protesters."  [More tweets]  As I've covered the protests/riots over the past year, I've seen many encounters that have ranged from minor harassment to someone ending up dead.  I'm not sure what Balko has been watching over the past year, but BLM/Antifa people are constantly blocking cars in the street and getting into encounters with drivers.

Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Traffic on Brooklyn Bridge, Clash With Police.  Black Lives Matter and affiliated protesters blocked traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City on Saturday night, leading NYPD officers to make arrests.  Video footage showed the demonstrators crossing the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan before squaring off with officers.  Some officers deployed pepper spray.  Other footage showed the demonstrators being told by officers to get off the bridge and pushing the crowd back.  According to officials, no injuries were reported, and about a half-dozen demonstrators were given appearance tickets for obstruction of vehicular traffic, reported the New York Post.

Black-owned businesses in Minneapolis autonomous zone — where police are kept out — plead for help.  The New York Post reported that black-owned businesses at the intersection where George Floyd died in May 2020, now known as George Floyd Square, are pleading for, among other things, help from police.  [Tweet]  Black merchants near the once-thriving corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue said police have abandoned the blocked-off intersection, creating a dangerous autonomous zone that has seen crime spoke and business evaporate.  Owner of Smoke in the Pit restaurant said:  "The city left me in danger."  The merchant, who asked to be identified only as Alexander W, for fear of reprisals, added:  "They locked us up on here and left us behind.  They left me with no food, no water, nothing to eat.  The police, fire trucks, can't come in here."

A Long and Sordid History of Crowds Threatening Violence in the Event of a Jury Acquittal.  It does not matter to due process whether the crowd is right or wrong, Black or white, well-intentioned or malevolent.  Nor does it matter whether the defendant is guilty, innocent or somewhere in between.  Oliver Wendell Holmes correctly pointed out: due process simply cannot be achieved for any defendant in the presence of hostile crowds ready for violence if a verdict of not guilty is rendered.  Every police chief and mayor of a large city understood that a verdict of not guilty for George Floyd's murder would result in demonstrations and perhaps violence.  They, along with the president, understandably prayed for the right verdict — which they defined as a conviction for murder regardless of whether the evidence supported that result, rather than a verdict of manslaughter, which the evidence clearly did support.  Like Oliver Wendell Holmes, every American should "very seriously doubt" if Chauvin had "due process of law."  He may well be guilty of at least manslaughter, but the process by which he was convicted was fatally flawed, in the same way that the process was flawed in the Leo Frank, Sam Sheppard and other cases.

Seattle Antifa Hate Group Threatens to Burn Down Church Over Event With Charlie Kirk.  A Puyallup, Wash., church has canceled an event featuring conservative speaker Charlie Kirk after antifa activists threatened to burn down all of its buildings and torch the neighbors' properties too.  Motion Church planned an event with Kirk, the head of Turning Point USA and a Christian speaker, on May 2.  The church, in a community south of Seattle, ministers to the homeless, lost, and addicted people in addition to hosting regular services and events at the church for families, and those seeking to know Christ more.

This bold pronouncement is about eight months late, Mr. Mayor.
Portland mayor says it's time take our city back' from violent mob.  The Mayor of Portland says he is determined to reclaim the city from the 'anarchistic mob' that has inflicted 'criminal intimidation and violence' on its streets over the past year.  Mayor Ted Wheeler called on the pubic to help him identify the people responsible for the rioting and destruction Portland so he could 'unmask them, arrest them and prosecute them.'  In a news conference on Friday addressing continuing violence in the city, Wheeler praised BLM leaders for showing 'the courage to stand up to this mob' and said that all Portland residents should do the same.

Portland's Pusillanimous Mayor.  In August 2020, then-President Donald Trump offered to assist the Democratic mayor of Portland, Oregon, in putting down the nightly riots that had ravaged his city for more than 90 days.  Given this choice between ending the systematic violence and arson that was wreaking havoc throughout his city and publicly signaling his virtue, Mayor Ted Wheeler chose the latter.  While the residents of Portland hid in their homes to avoid the violence, he responded to Trump's offer with a sanctimonious letter that included this delusional passage:  "No thanks.  We don't need your politics of division and demagoguery."  A week later, Portland police declared a riot and arrested 59 people.  Fast forward to last Friday.  Mayor Wheeler, having survived countless calls for his resignation and somehow managing to get reelected in November, is still presiding over a continuous wave of riots and is reverting to the same ineffective tactics that failed so spectacularly last summer.

Portland's mayor should resign first.  The invoice is coming and it's going to be big.  Last summer, cities, from Portland to Minneapolis let mobs destroy their buildings and even kill police officers for no reason at all.  The political class backed down and did not protect their citizens and businesses from criminals who used George Floyd's death as an excuse to burn and destroy.  It was a pathetic display of weakness and irresponsibility.  Well, Trump is gone and reality is hitting everyone between the eyes.  It's now time to clean up and do whatever they can to recover.

Protesters block traffic, clash with cops on Brooklyn Bridge.  Dramatic footage by The Post shows a crowd of protesters snarling traffic and squaring off with cops just a block from City Hall on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday night [4/24/2021].  Six cops were seen corralling one man with his hands behind his back at the Manhattan mouth of the bridge from around 10:30 p.m.  "He's breaking my finger," the grimacing man claims.  "What am I being arrested for?," another can be heard asking, as swarms of officers disperse several dozen protesters coming off the bridge onto Centre Street.  Dozens of protesters had crossed the bridge by walking along its Manhattan-bound roadway, blocking cars.  About a half dozen protesters were given appearance tickets for obstruction of vehicular traffic, according to police.

Jaywalking tickets?  That's it?

BLM storms Oklahoma Capitol over GOP bills, where's the media outrage?  Protesters shouting "Black Lives Matter" stormed the Oklahoma Capitol this week and there doesn't seem to be much outrage or mass coverage from the mainstream media.  Nothing like what we saw on January 6 when people called Trump supporters insurrectionists.  Aren't these protesters doing something similar?  Isn't it an insurrection when BLM storms a Capitol, or does that not fit in the liberal mainstream media's narrative.

The "Windham Incident" Death Threats.  Many know, I have been actively involved with a State Senator and others over the past few months — pushing for a forensic audit of Windham's voting machines and ballots from the November 3, 2020 general election.  A law mandating the forensic audit was passed on April 12th.  Part of my support for the Bill included keeping the public aware, and asking them to respectfully submit their thoughts to the appropriate government officials.  Their responses have been overwhelming.  It is the civic duty of every citizen to get involved with our government — especially when critical decisions are made regarding the integrity of our elections.  Citizen involvement is the foundation of our representative government.  This morning [4/23/2021], I was informed by the Chairman of the Windham Board of Selectman that he received "at least two veiled death threats".  He added, "the veiled death threats have crossed the line.  This is on you."  He then asked that I make a public statement.  I have had a good, healthy, and respectful relationship with the Chairman going back many years.  I agree completely with him that any sort of threat — veiled or not — crosses the line.  But I do not agree that "this is on me".  I am NOT responsible for the actions of any other person.  I have NEVER incited — nor condoned — violence.  It is irresponsible that I am being blamed for someone else's actions.

Leftists Dump Piles of Cow Manure at Biden White House in Earth Day Protest.  Leftist protesters led by Code Pink's token white male Tighe Barry and Extinction Rebellion D.C. marched through downtown Washington, D.C. Thursday morning pushing pink colored wheelbarrows filled with cow manure, heading to the White House to protest Joe Biden's climate policies on Earth Day.  This is one time when wearing masks outdoors might make sense.

The Editor says...
Did they drive right past the National Guard with a truckload of manure?  Do you think a Republican in a MAGA hat could do that without being questioned?

NYT Columnist Argues Mass Rioting, Looting Last Summer Was Just Something Republicans 'Believe' Happened.  Throughout last summer, Americans witnessed widespread rioting and looting many BLM demonstrations caused across the country.  Now, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is arguing that all that destruction was just something Republicans "believe."  Krugman made the comment in a series of tweets criticizing Republicans for being most concerned about illegal immigration and the deficit, according to a Pew study.  "You might think that it would be hard to obsess over the deficit when it was actually Trump who blew the deficit up, to zero complaints from his party," Krugman tweeted.  "But that would be assuming that R voters know about that, or would even be willing to hear it."  "In reality, given that GOP supporters believe that rampaging mobs burned and looted major cities — somehow without the people actually living in those cities noticing — getting them to see facts about something as abstract as the deficit is a hopeless cause," Krugman continued.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggests 'rampaging mobs' that looted cities were GOP make-believe.  New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested on Thursday that the violence that has plagued cities over the past year was a figment of Republicans' imagination.  Krugman knocked Republicans on Twitter for "only" being concerned about illegal immigration and the deficit in comparison to Democrats, who according to a Pew study are overwhelmingly concerned about gun violence, racism, the coronavirus, climate change, affordable healthcare, and economic inequality.  "You might think that it would be hard to obsess over the deficit when it was actually Trump who blew the deficit up, to zero complaints from his party," Krugman tweeted.  "But that would be assuming that R voters know about that, or would even be willing to hear it."

Protesters vandalize Central Park monument and clash with police.  Protesters clashed with police in Manhattan on Thursday night [4/22/2021] after a monument was vandalized by cop-haters in Central Park.  Six people were arrested in Columbus Circle near the USS Maine National Monument, which was defaced with anti-police graffiti, cops said. [...] The crowd was part of the Stonewall Protests, which gathers weekly outside the iconic Greenwich Village bar.  The group describes itself as "black queer and black trans activists centered on the acknowledgement of all black life" on Instagram.

LeBron James Incited Millions to Murder a Police Officer.  Will It Cost Him Anything?  As America learned that a Columbus, Ohio, police officer shot and killed a teenage girl while she was in the act of wielding a knife at two other girls, NBA star LeBron James took to Twitter and incited his followers against the police officer.  James has 49.6 million Twitter followers and is a hero to millions for winning basketball championships.  He is very influential.

Blacks At Floyd Memorial Want To Burn Down City No Matter What, One Hints Towards Killing Whites.  Radical black BLM supporters in attendance at A George Floyd's memorial in Minneapolis were asked about their thoughts on police, civil war and how they felt whites should be treated.  What follows is a collection of shockingly honest words from people who are actively looking to tear the country apart for no reason other than racism against white people, which despite what CNN would have you believe isn't really that big of an issue anymore as many races work happily together every day around the nation.  "Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?" one of the women asked.  "I say burn the city down, y'know?  So they can see that we're here," another woman asserted.  One person said that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all.

BLM And Their Mob Surround A Truck After The Chauvin Verdict, Try To Pull Driver Out.  Protesters jumped on and surrounded a semi-truck after it drove near a crowd of people celebrating the guilty verdict against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on April 20.  The crowd was filmed jumping on the truck, trying to open the driver's door, smashing his window, one person in a suit and tie even jumped on the hood of the truck.  A voice in the video is heard yelling 'beat [him]' and 'disconnect the trailer.'  Jurors returned a verdict of guilty on all three charges against Chauvin, on trial for the death of 46-year-old Floyd, after less than 10 hours of deliberation

Fraternal Order Of Police Blasts LeBron James For 'Gaslighting' Attack On Cop Who Saved Black Girl From Stabbing Assault.  The National Fraternal Order of Police condemned LeBron James for using his influence to call for an attack on the police officer who shot and killed a teenage girl wielding a knife to save the life of another black girl.  "@KingJames, with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in.  This is disgraceful & extremely reckless," the FOP wrote on Twitter.  "The officer saved a young girl's life.  No amount of gaslighting will change that fact."  In a now-deleted tweet, the famous NBA player posted a picture of the alleged Columbus officer involved in the fatal shooting captioned with the words "YOU'RE NEXT" and "#ACCOUNTABILITY."  James removed the post but it still received more than 6,000 retweets in the short amount of time it circulated Twitter.

'You're next': LeBron James tweets that the white cop who shot dead Ma'Khia Bryant should be held 'accountable' before deleting it after he was accused of 'inciting violence' against police.  NBA star LeBron James called for the Ohio cop who shot dead 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant to be held accountable for his actions in a now-deleted tweet on Wednesday [4/21/2021].  Bryant, a black teenager, was killed by a white Columbus police officer on Tuesday while charging at two people with a knife, sparking more outrage over the continued use of lethal force by cops just moments after former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was found guilty on murder and manslaughter charges over the death of George Floyd.  In response to Bryant's death, James, who is consistently outspoken about social justice issues, tweeted: 'You're next. #ACCOUNTABILITY.'

Oklahoma lawmakers confronted by more than two dozen protesters who swarmed house chambers to denounce a bill that shields motorists who strike 'rioters' with their car.  More than two dozen angry protesters swarmed the Oklahoma House of Representatives chamber during a session on Wednesday to demonstrate against several bills that target demonstrators and trans girls.  The House and Senate were forced to lock their chambers as the protesters entered the Capitol's House gallery on the fifth floor while lawmakers were in session.  Video shows the group chanting 'no justice no peace' and 'Black Lives Matter'.  But others heckled legislators, with one screaming 'you are a [...] disgrace to the whole country!'

Oklahoma Senate passes bill protecting drivers who hit protesters blocking roadways.  A bill meant to protect drivers who hit protesters during the course of fleeing a riot passed the Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday [4/14/2021].  House Bill 1674, which passed through the Senate by a vote of 38-10, would increase penalties for blocking roadways while also providing immunity to drivers who kill or injure motorists while fleeing the scene of a riot in fear for their lives, according to the Associated Press.  The bill comes in response to an incident in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last year in which a driver in a pickup truck drove through a group of George Floyd protesters blocking an interstate and injured several protesters.  The driver, whose family was in the car, was not charged.

Biden Falsely Describes Race Rioters Who Burned America as Marching "In Peace".  Biden's response to the legal lynching of Derek Chauvin for the drug overdose death of George Floyd came with the false claim that the racist rioters and looters of the black supremacist Black Lives Matter hate movement had protested "in peace and with purpose".  Purpose, yes.  Peace, no.  Unless Biden considers $2 billion in looting damage, at least 8 mostly peaceful murders, including that of a black 8-year-old girl, and the destruction of entire communities to be peaceful.

BLM Activists Suggest We Should 'Start Killing' All White People.  A shocking interview from the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis reveals how many Black Americans think about White people in the US.  During the collection of interviews, journalist and filmmaker Ami Horowitz asked several people who were attending the memorial about their thoughts on burning the city down and using violence against white people.  The responses may be shocking but not surprising to those who have been paying attention.  "Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?" one of the women asked.  "I say burn the city down, y'know?  So they can see that we're here," another woman said.  One of the women went on to say that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all, and should have just been sent right to jail for life.

The Editor says...
Yes, there was one party involved in this mess who should have been sent to jail for life, and it wasn't Derek Chauvin.

Antifa Chants 'Hit a Cop With a Baseball Bat' During Violent Frederick, Maryland Demonstrations.  A group of AntiFa radicals led threatening chants of "hit a cop with a baseball bat," during violent demonstrations in Frederick, Maryland; the latest instance of extreme left-wing activity in a community once known for the conservative streak that set it apart from other regions of the state.  "From the Nile to the Platte, hit a cop with a baseball bat!", the group, which reportedly goes by the name "Frederick Socialists," chanted through bullhorns during the "free the people, fight the power, fuck the police march" down a residential street in one of several short clips posted online by march attendees.

BLM Activist Says She Supports Mass Looting Because It's Payback For 200 Years Of What White People Have Done.  Activist Kim Brown, who hosts "Burn It Down with Kim Brown" on YouTube, says she fully supports the looting of Dollar Tree, and of Advance Auto Parts (which was burned down).  Why?  Because blacks could loot every store in America for 200 years and still not have their debt repaid.  Someone should tell her stores aren't going to reopen if they're continually looted.  "I support the looting of Dollar tree.  I support the looting of Advanced auto parts.  I support all that [...]... Because blk people could loot every store in this [...] country for 200 years and it would not even come close to what America owes us."  [Video clip]

Excuse me for trying to inject logic into this discussion, but if you burn down somebody's store, how does that repay a debt?

Historic Church Goes Up In Flames Minneapolis.  A fire caused major damage to the century-old Sacred Heart of Jesus church in northeast Minneapolis Monday night.  Crews were called just before 7 p.m. to the church, located on the 2200 block of 5th Street Northeast, after reports of a fire on the first floor.  Firefighters rescued a few parishioners who had entered the church to try and put out the flames.  By the time they were taken to safety, the fire spread to the roof.  [Video clip]

Dems have abandoned all principle by telegraphing approval of some rioting.  Are some riots good and others unacceptable?  Surely not.  Those who destroy property and commit assaults, whether against law enforcers or civilians, ought to be punished, no matter the cause they claim to support.  But today's liberals reject this fair, universal standard.  Some riots deserve legal protection, they insist, while others must be harshly repressed.  It all depends on the politics of the rioters.  Some, such as the excitable Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), are cheering the prospect of another round of Black Lives Matter riots, er, "peaceful protests," if the Derek Chauvin trial doesn't go their way.  They're also up in arms about a new Florida law that strengthens punishment for those who take to the streets to commit violence.

Witness Intimidation, Racial Antagonists Throw Blood and Pig Head on Former Residence of Defense Witness in Derek Chauvin Trial.  As the closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin trial wrap up today those who want to advance racial hatred attempt to intimidate a prior defense witness.  Former police training officer Barry Brodd testified for the defense.  His former home in Santa Rosa, California, was attacked Sunday with a pigs head left on the blood-splattered front porch.  Fortunately Mr. Brodd had previously moved away from that location, but the current owner was obviously mortified.  The far-left is once again using every resource to trigger violence and hatred around this case.  Without a doubt the activists inside Obama's Chicago network are coordinating the effort.  They have been exploiting the death of George Floyd for maximum political value and antagonism from the outset.

Portland church damaged in riot says cost of repairs will take away from feeding the homeless.  Portland businesses and a church picked up the pieces Saturday morning between nights of unrest in the city following a number of police shootings nationwide.  Groups of around 100 people moved around the streets of Portland, either protesting or looking to cause damage on Friday night, leading police to declare a riot.  The mayhem marked the third night in five days that police have declared a riot in the city in the wake of police shootings nationwide, [...]

Governor's mansion, several homes vandalized in Denver.  The governor's mansion was among several homes hit during a vandalism spree in Denver overnight [4/18/2021].  Sister station CBS Denver reports most of the targets were the city's Cheesman Park neighborhood.

Signs that 2021 rioters will be attacking and burning wealthy neighborhoods.  Rioting is a frequent phenomenon, complete with a professional traveling cadre that moves into a city when a spark ignites anger — as most recently happened in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. [...] With so many people and resources being expended, a bit of strategic thinking is being brought into play.  Poor Blacks burning their own neighborhoods hurts the (nonprofessional) rioters and their families and is a burden that does not affect most people.  It also doesn't win a lot of friends among the supposedly oppressed people the itinerant professional rioters seek to lead.  Now we are seeing signs that the urge to riot will be directed from above at the affluent and comfortable, a property destruction analogue of the slogan "Eat the Rich" that has enjoyed great popularity on some quarters.

Peaceful Protesters?  BLM Incites Crowd To 'Get Blood On Their Hands'.  With the scent of mayhem over the George Floyd murder trial verdict already in the air, Black Lives Matter is preparing to take to the streets for another round of rioting, looting, and mayhem that could result in bloodshed.  On Friday [4/16/2021], BLM activists and their Antifa allies took to the streets to denounce the police and to warm up for the violence that will be unleashed if the jury delivers anything less than a second-degree murder verdict against ex-cop Derek Chauvin.  In one of the rallies that were held across the country, a young activist speaking at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington D.C. made it clear that there will be hell to pay for white America and issued a call for what sounded like a violent revolution.

Minnesota National Guard, Police Team Targeted In Drive-By Shooting Hours After Maxine Waters Incites BLM Protesters.  Hours after Sen. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged protesters to 'get more confrontational,' a Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis police team were targeted in a Saturday morning drive-by shooting, according to a press release by the National Guard.  The incident happened at approximately 4:19 a.m. local time when a light colored SUV drove by and unloaded.  Fortunately for the officers, only minor injuries were sustained — with two National Guardsmen suffering minor cuts from shattered glass.  They were taken to a local hospital.  A third Guardsman had "only superficial injuries" according to the statement.

Antifa "Panicking" About Police Informant Inside Network:  Andy Ngo.  Members of the infamous Antifa cell in Portland are anxious after an informant in their midst gave information to police, leading to arson charges, Antifa expert Andy Ngo says.  "They're panicking because this may possibly mean that somebody has infiltrated high... and there's a lot at risk, because this is a criminal cartel," Ngo said Saturday [4/17/2021] on NTD's "The Nation Speaks."

Maxine Waters Makes Inciting Comments, Goes All in With Rashida Tlaib on the Anti-Police Rhetoric.  Rep. Maxine Waters (Delusional-CA) joined a protest action in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, last night [4/17/2021] and made inflammatory comments, saying that people needed to "stay in the streets" and be "confrontational" if Derek Chauvin, the police officer on trial for George Floyd's death, is not convicted of first degree murder.  [Video clip]  Now, of course, this is completely irresponsible for a sitting member of the House to be encouraging "confrontation," especially when things are already at a fever pitch.  If she had been a Republican and said this, she'd probably already be accused of "insurrection."  If she had been President Donald Trump, she'd already be impeached.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She Will Introduce Resolution to Expel Maxine Waters From Congress.  Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said Sunday [4/18/2021] that she plans to introduce a resolution calling on Congress to expel sixteen-term Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) over incendiary remarks Waters made at an anti-police protest in Brooklyn City, Minnesota late Saturday night.  Waters was recorded on video demanding a guilty verdict from the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial and urged protesters to "get more confrontational."

Republicans blast Rep. Maxine Waters over protest comments.  A chorus of Republicans blasted Rep. Maxine Waters Sunday [4/18/2021] for telling angry protesters to "stay in the streets" and "get more confrontational" during the seven-straight night of unrest in Minnesota — saying the California Democrat's fiery comments could incite violence in a state already on edge.  Waters stood alongside demonstrators in Brooklyn Center early Sunday morning, breaking a curfew set by police, to encourage them to make their voices heard following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright and ahead of as closing arguments in the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.  "We've got to stay in the streets, and we've got to demand justice," she urged the crowd, who earlier had been chanting:  "No good cops in a racist system!" "[...]!" and "No justice, no peace!"  "We're looking for a guilty verdict" in the Chauvin case, Waters said.  "And if we don't, we cannot go away, we've got to get more confrontational."

Impeach and remove Maxine Waters.  In supporting the second impeachment of President Trump, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said he was "inciting" his followers, and was "trying to create a Civil War."  By her own standards, Maxine Waters should be impeached and removed.  On Sunday [4/18/2021] in Minnesota, Waters, breaking the law by violating curfew (because "she didn't agree with it") said that if ex-police officer Derek Chauvin is not found guilty of murdering George Floyd, "We've got to get more confrontational."  There's been rioting, looting, graffiti — what did Waters mean by "more confrontational?" In Portland, they set fire to an Apple store.  They're trying to take over government buildings.  This isn't the first time Waters has incited her supporters.  In 2018, she told them to harass Trump administration officials.  "Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up.  And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd.  And you push back on them.  And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere," she said.

Calls For Maxine Waters to Be Immediately Arrested Grow After She "Incited Riots".  Maxine Water, like all Dems, is hell-bent on tearing this nation apart in the twisted name of "justice."  Mad Max took to the streets of Minneapolis, wearing a mask, and a massive plexiglass faceguard (wasn't she vaccinated?) and whipped the crowd up into [a] frenzy, and basically told them to "burn it all down" if Derek Chauvin isn't convicted of the first-degree murder of George Floyd. [...] A sitting US Congresswoman is actually encouraging rioting and looting if our justice doesn't convict Chauvin.

Maxine Waters tells Minnesota BLM protesters 'to get more confrontational' one day after violent anti-police clashes erupted across US.  California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday after the death of Daunte Wright.  Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to 'to get more confrontational' — just one day after protests descended into violence.  'I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,' Waters said. 'We're looking for a guilty verdict,' she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial.  'If we don't, we cannot go away.'

Maxine Waters:  Derek Chauvin Must Be 'Guilty, Guilty, Guilty' or We Take to the Streets.  Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) joined demonstrators Saturday evening outside the police station in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, and told Americans to take to the streets unless Derek Chauvin is convicted for murder in the death of George Floyd.  Waters joined protesters who are angry over the shooting of Daunte Wright, 20, as he fled arrest after a traffic stop earlier this month. [...] The incident was followed by protests and riots, just as the Chauvin trial was taking place several miles away.  "We're looking for a guilty verdict," Waters said.  "And we're looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we've got to not only stay in the street, but we've got to fight for justice," she said.

Antifa Goes Wild in the Nation's Capital, but the Reaction Is Decidedly Different.  In the wake of the police shootings of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo, protests have begun to routinely devolve into rioting, looting, and general violence and destruction.  Earlier in the week, we saw violent outbursts in Minneapolis.  Heading into the weekend, things had also gotten worse in places like Portland, Chicago, and Washington D.C.  In fact, these recent, disturbing videos show Antifa terrorists trapping and attacking police officers in the nation's capital. [...] Where is the National Guard?  We were assured they were in Washington D.C. to keep the peace.  There's a large contingent of them currently stationed there.  Why are they not being deployed to stop his anarchy?  You can speculate as to the reasons why, and I certainly have my theories.  Regardless, what really stuck out to me was the difference in reaction we are seeing from the left and their media allies compared to January 6th.

Florida Senate Approves 'Anti-Riot' Bill.  Florida's Senate has voted to approve an "anti-riot" bill supported by Republicans, and Gov. Ron DeSantis in particular, but criticized by Democrats and civil rights groups as limiting the right to protest in the state, the Orlando Sentinel reports.  The newspaper notes that Democrats and civil rights organizations specifically point to the provisions in the bill that "grant civil legal immunity to people who drive through protesters blocking a road; prevent people arrested for rioting or offenses committed during a riot from bailing out of jail until their first court appearance; and impose a six-month mandatory sentence for battery on a police officer during a riot."  The bill also states that a city cannot reduce its police budget without prior approval from the state, in an apparent response to the movement to redistribute some of the funding that goes towards police.

Antifa Informant Snitches To Portland Police, Results In Arsonist Arrest, Chaos In Antifa Ranks.  Antifa terrorists in Portland are panicking as one of their own has supposedly turned against them, ratting out criminal behavior to the police.  After Tuesday night's [4/134/2021] torching of the police union headquarters building, one of the rioters, Alma Raven-Guido, has been arrested and charged with Arson, Riot, and Criminal Mischief.  If you can believe it, pro-antifa district attorney, Mike Schmidt, is actually holding her to the charges.  Turns out one of their own ratted her out to police.  And this isn't the first time this person has snitched!

Tip From Portland Police Informant Leads to Arson Charges Against Woman for Torching Portland Union Hall.  Eyewitness testimony from a Portland police informant with a history of providing "credible and reliable information on multiple prior investigations" is one of Multnomah County prosecutors' strongest pieces of evidence in charging a 19-year-old woman with arson for allegedly setting fire to the Portland Police Association headquarters.  On Wednesday [4/14/2021], the district attorney's office filed charges of arson, criminal mischief and felony riot against Alma Raven-Guido.  The charges follow an April 13 protest against racist policing where some of the protesters marched to the union hall on North Lombard Street and set fire to a portion of it.  The most substantial information in the probable cause affidavit filed Wednesday by the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office comes from the alleged firsthand account of an unnamed informant.

FBI Director Wray Refuses To Disclose If Antifa Has Organized Finances To Launch Coordinated Attacks.  Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray refused to disclose whether Antifa has the capability to organize, receive funding, and coordinate attacks during the House Intelligence Committee's annual public World Wide Threats Hearing on Thursday [4/15/2021].  Wray began his answer about Antifa by declaring it is a "real thing."  "There are certainly local and regional nodes, individuals who self-identify with Antifa and commit violent attacks, citing that as their motivation, and we have a number of predicate investigations into such individuals and Antifa is a real thing.  It's not a fiction," Wray admitted, despite Democrats and their media allies previously calling Antifa a "myth."  When pressed by Republican Rep. Michael Turner of Ohio about the organizing, training, and financing of Antifa, however, Wray was reluctant to divulge information.

Black Lives Matter activist Bree Newsome defends rioting and looting as 'a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence'.  A prominent activist who supports the Black Lives Matter movement has appeared to support violent protests, arguing that rioting and looting are 'a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence'.  Bree Newsome, 35, made the passionate remarks in a series of tweets this week, arguing that police are not limited to non-violence, and that a violent response to injustice can be appropriate and justified.  Newsome, a filmmaker and activist on racial justice issues, famously scaled a flagpole at the South Carolina State House to tear down the Confederate battle flag in 2015.  Weeks later, lawmakers ordered the divisive symbol's removal from the grounds.

FBI investigating Antifa for violent attacks, Director Wray says.  The FBI is investigating far-left Antifa radicals linked to violent attacks around the country, FBI Director Christopher Wray told Congress on Thursday [4/15/2021].  Mr. Wray was asked his views on whether Antifa, a leftist radical group that has triggered violent attacks in several U.S. cities, is an organized group.  "We consider Antifa to be more of a movement," Mr. Wray said during an appearance before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.  "There are certainly local and regional nodes, individuals who self-identify with Antifa who commit violent attacks, citing that as their motivation.  And we have a number of predicated investigations into such individuals."

The Arab street has come to America.  It's important to note that riots happen constantly.  If you type the word "riot" into YouTube, you get videos from every corner of the world.  Many of the riots in the Arab world were part of the Muslim spring, when liberty-seekers and Muslim Brotherhood despots alike took to the streets, anxious to unseat the governments then in charge.  In the West, riots tended to be focused on a specific political goal, complete with signs and the usual leftist street theater.  However, the notion of the "Arab street" connotes a specific type of riot, one in which imams and other activists stir up a mob to take to the streets in a blind rage. [...] The initial George Floyd protests, while they were built on a lie, had the indicia of a traditional protest:  people focused on an issue gathered together with signs and slogans to impress politicians with their numbers and, often, marched down the streets.  However, once those protests devolved into riots and looting, they took on the patina of the Arab street.  And when the people skipped the formal protest part entirely, as they did in Kenosha and are now doing in Brooklyn Center (and will certainly do in Minneapolis after the Chauvin verdict), we are witnessing pure Arab street theater: demagogues are whipping volatile crowds into frenzies that do not result in formal protest, but simply lead to anarchic street violence.

If I did this, it would be called "making a terroristic threat."
BLM Thugs Take Over Dallas Restaurant, Threaten To 'Burn [...] Down.  What's your definition of terrorism?  As Black Lives Matter agitators take over this Dallas eatery, their chants of "Who burn [...] down?  We burn [...] down" sure sounds like a threat of terrorism.  [Video clip]

Attacks against journalists soar during Black Lives Matter protests.  At least 50 journalists in the US have been arrested during Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the US, while dozens of others have also been injured by rubber bullets, pepper spray and tear gas.  The US Press Freedom Tracker has collected nearly 500 incidents from 382 reports, from the unrest in Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd's killing by police in late May, to demonstrations in more than 70 cities across 35 states since.  At least 46 journalists were arrested between the end of May and the beginning of June, according to data collected by the organisation.  Dozens of others reported injuries from law enforcement, firing "less lethal" projectiles, tear gas canisters and other weapons into crowds or directly at reporters during demonstrations, even when they had identified themselves and shown credentials, the organisation reports.  Two reporters have suffered permanent eye injuries.

Are Riots Okay Again?  Are riots a violent insurrection by radical groups which must be suppressed by any means... or a peaceful protest?  Obviously, it depends on who's doing the rioting and where they're doing the rioting.  A riot in congress is an attack on "our democracy" while looting, burning and trashing a bunch of stores in Brooklyn Center is a peaceful protest.  Attacking Capitol Police officers is a horrifying crime, but attacking Brooklyn Center police officers is a peaceful protest.  If a Brooklyn Center officer gets a job working for the Capitol Police and moves to D.C., then attacking him while he's in Minnesota is fine, but not in D.C., unless the attackers are protesting for some fashionable cause like falsely accusing a Supreme Court justice of rape or claiming that the world is about to end because not everyone drives a Tesla.

Minneapolis Rioters Loot A Super Foot Locker In The Name Of 'Social Justice' After Police Shooitng Sunday.  A law enforcement officer fatally shot a young African-American man in the city of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, which sparked a fresh wave of protests and resulted in clashes between protesters and police officers.  Hundreds of protesters marched to the Brooklyn Center police department to protest the officer-involved shooting of an African-American man, where they were met by police officers in riot gear; some took advantage of the turmoil and started looting shops, including a local Walmart.  Videos have emerged online showing some of the protesters looting stores near Brooklyn Center during the rally, which was declared unlawful by police.  [Video clip]

What it will look like for us if history repeats itself.  With but minor changes adapting it to the situation, the Derek Chauvin trial is reprising the George Zimmerman  dramatic production  trial.  Chauvin plugs in as Zimmerman, while George Floyd takes Trayvon Martin's place.  We're wearily familiar with the script; there will be riots no matter what's decided, with the same people rioting.  The lamestream media will pronounce Chauvin guilty with minimal regard for evidence, law, or common sense.  In the court of public opinion, Chauvin will ultimately be judged not on what he actually did, but on the narrative that somebody white has to pay for George Floyd's death.  Meanwhile, Minneapolis police shot and killed another black lawbreaker Sunday, bringing BLM rioters into the streets again.  These had been waiting for a spark to ignite another conflagration.  They probably were anticipating the decision in the Chauvin case, but pretty much any old spark would have served the purpose.

ANTIFA And BLM Crashes White Lives Matter Event In Huntington Beach, Massive Clashes Ensue.  Huntington Beach police Sunday declared an unlawful assembly after scuffles broke out between "White Lives Matter" protesters and Black Lives Matter counter-demonstrators near the pier.  Video shows at least two men carrying Trump 2020 flags and one going head-to-head with the counter-protesters who then surrounded him and ripped his flag down.  A small scuffle breaks out before police intervened and officers confiscated the man's flag and took him into custody.  [Video clip]

The "Woke" Corporations Received A Brutal Dose Of Reality As Shocking Videos From Minneapolis Reveal BLM Rioters Looting And Destroying Their Stores.  Shocking images emerged this morning [4/12/2021] from Minneapolis where BLM rioters destroyed most of the woke corporation businesses that send them support.  Stores from Target, Nike, Speedway, T-Mobile, and many more were ransacked yesterday.  They received a brutal dose of reality as many of them did send support to these violent rioters.  [Video clip]

People set fires at Portland, Oregon ICE building:  Reports.  Video footage shows fires burning at the Portland, Oregon U.S. Immigration and Customs Enformcent (ICE) building.  Video footage shows one fire that appeared to be burning along the outside of the building that had wood panels on it.  "On Sunday [4/11/2021], the Portland Police Bureau confirmed that officers were called out to the federal building in Southwest Portland around 11:30 p.m. to assist the Federal Protective Service once fires had been lit.  Officers arrived to find at least two fires, including one that appeared to be against the building," according to KATU News.  "Videos shared to KATU News by Independent Media PDX show the plywood that reinforced the exterior of the building ablaze.  Wooden pallets piled outside were also set on fire," the outlet said.

While Minneapolis Burns After Police Shooting, Must-See Video of Victim Emerges.  The mainstream media have seized onto another Black Lives Matter martyr:  A charismatic-looking young father all of just 20 years old whose innocent smile adds outrage to yet another tragic officer-involved death in riot-devastated Minneapolis. [...] But in the narrative battle over whether or not a police shooting incident was right or wrong, any one-sided image is going to be misleading.  What the media is less likely to show those who desire to fuel the outrage and further BLM protests is that Wright was shown on video blithely smoking and waving his handgun at the video in a menacing fashion.  [Video clip]

Rioter Tries To Toss Cinder Block At Cops, Gets Taken Down With Rubber Bullets.  A riot is underway in the Minneapolis metropolitan area, and has already seen rioters injured, police property damaged, and an attempt to hurl a cement block at an officer's head.  The riot started in response to police-involved shooting of a man who had an outstanding warrant and was in the process of fleeing from police.  [Video clip]

Minneapolis Explodes in Rioting and Looting After Officer Shoots Black Man Escaping in Car.  Minneapolis is already a powder keg set to explode as millions await the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.  On Sunday night [4/11/2021], activists set into action after 20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot and killed by police as he tried to escape an arrest.  Wright, who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest, was pulled over by police.  The suspect was shot after returning to his vehicle to flee, according to police.  "According to a statement from Brooklyn Center Police, officers stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday after determining the driver had an outstanding warrant," the Washington Post reported.  "Police said when they tried to arrest the driver, the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away.  An officer fired at the vehicle, striking the driver.  Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before striking another vehicle."

A former Minneapolis police officer said he quit days before the Derek Chauvin trial because he thinks protesters will 'burn the city down' no matter the case's outcome.  A former Minneapolis police officer who quit the department days before the start of Derek Chauvin's trial said he did so fearing there would be riots in the city no matter the outcome.  The officer, a former sergeant, spoke on the condition that he not be named, but his identity is known to Insider.  The former officer said he was up for retirement soon and worried about his safety in what he predicts will be "riots and more destruction" when the jury reaches a verdict, which could happen this month.  Chauvin's trial in Minneapolis began March 29.  "If Minnesota had the death penalty and Chauvin got it, people in Minneapolis are still going to riot," the officer said.  "They're still going to burn the city down."

Riots following police shooting in Minneapolis suburb make a fair trial for Chauvin impossible.  The National Guard has been called out to control rioting in the wake of a police shooting in the northern Minneapolis lower-middle-class suburb of Brooklyn Center (whose Caucasian population is 44.5% according to Census Bureau estimates).  Rioters behaved with a hair trigger response, with at least one shot fired into the police station, and looting reported locally and many miles distant, on Lake Street in Minneapolis, which received the brunt of the riot, looting, and arson damage following the drug overdose death of George Floyd while in police custody.

Occupied Portland ICE building set afire by left-wing extremists during Saturday night insurrection.  Left-wing extremists reportedly set a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building on fire during another insurrection Saturday evening [4/10/2021] in Portland, Oregon.  Horrifying video footage from the insurrection showed the facility's entrance on fire and its doors shaking as agents were "trying to apparently get out."  Besides trying to burn down the facility and kill those inside, the left-wing extremists also reportedly launched fireworks at the building, lit a fire in its driveway and smashed its windows.  Yet as of Sunday morning, not a single media outlet in America save for Fox News had even taken note of the insurrection.  Even local media outlets in Portland appeared to be ignoring it.

Antifa-BLM Violently Attack Reporter, Put Him in Chokehold, Bloody His Face During Anti-Eviction March in Detroit.  Antifa-BLM thugs violently assaulted an independent reporter on Saturday who was covering an anti-eviction march through Greektown in Detroit, Michigan.  Marchers chanted, "Black homes are under attack, tell me what do we do, rise up fight back!"

Not Insurrection?  BLM Storm Iowa State Capitol, Fight With Police.  Troopers clashed with Black Lives Matter activists after they stormed the Iowa State Capitol on Thursday [4/8/2021].  Footage from the scene appears to show protesters wearing face masks, holding signs and chanting inside of the building in Des Moines.  [Video clips]

Muslim ANTIFA Member Arrested On Attempted Murder Of A Poilice Officer For Throwing Molotov At Cop In Portland.  A suspect has been arrested in Indianapolis, Indiana, related to multiple firebomb attacks on police officers in 2020.  The Portland Police Bureau Arson Unit, Portland Fire and Rescue Fire Investigators, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives , and Federal Bureau of Investigation have been investigating uses of firebombs, also known as Molotov Cocktails, used against police during riots in the summer and fall of 2020.  On Friday, April 2, 2021, 24-year-old Malik Muhammed was arrested in Indianapolis on multiple warrants, including Attempted Aggravated Murder, Attempted Murder in the first degree, Attempted Murder in the second degree, Unlawful Manufacture of a Destructive Device, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm in Public.  [Video clip]

An obvious attempt to interfere with the judicial system, intimidate the jury, and/or incite a riot:
Black Lives Matter Activist Warns "All Hell Will Break Loose" If Officer Chauvin Is Not Convicted in George Floyd Death.  Black Lives Matter activist Maya Echols, who is also a signed model with IMG Worldwide, warned in a recent Tik-Tok video that "cities will burn" if Police Officer Derek Chauvin is not convicted in the death of drug addict and thief George Floyd. [...] The autopsy report found that George Floyd had meth, fentanyl, cannabinoids and morphine in his system when he die.  Floyd was also COVID positive.

Antifa's Destructive Return Could Have Staying Power.  After weeks of relative silence, Antifa's destructive activism came roaring back to the Pacific Northwest.  And as the trial of a former police officer in the death of a black man is underway 1,650 miles away, this region worries that the violence not only will worsen but threaten to become a permanent fixture.  Violence erupted in both Seattle and Portland, Oregon, in mid-March as jury selection began for the trial of Derek Chauvin in the May 25 death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police.  Yet this violence wasn't exclusively connected to anger related to the trial; it was merely a symbolic restart to the extremists' activism.  Their violence uses social movements for cover.  Their intent, however, is to dismantle our institutions and rebuild through a lens of radical social justice.

Black Bloc Protester Tries to Climb Chase Bank Building, It Doesn't End Well.  The activist was going up with black paint in a backpack, likely hoping to use it on the building.  While he climbed up, others were defacing the front window, calling for the bank to defund from the pipeline project.  A man who appeared connected to the building tried to encourage the protester to come down.  He came down, alright, hard, when he tried to cross over to an awning and then fell about 15 feet to the ground on his right arm, yelling in pain.  Thinking that hurt a lot.  The black paint in his bag spills everywhere.  His fellow activists rush over and yell, "Call 911" which is rather ironic, given that on any other occasion, you would likely find some of these folks marching with the BLM and calling to defund the police.  EMS responds and takes the guy to the hospital.  [Video clip]

Total Lunantic Leftist Assaults Man Protesting Lockdowns And Masks, Smashes Window With Bicycle.  This was the chaotic scene on Main st in Vancouver when a protester with a bullhorn was attacked by an Asian man on a bicycle.  The protester was protesting lockdowns and masks when the man on the bike starting throwing punches through his van window.  Then he used his bike as a weapon, eventually breaking his window.  [Video clip]

Protesters call for justice in Floyd death after opening statements made in Chauvin trial.  Groups calling for justice for George Floyd Marched in downtown Minneapolis Monday night [3/29/2021].  They say they will be protesting during key parts of the trial.  On Monday, lawyers in the trial of Derek Chauvin — the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of Floyd — made their opening statements.  "We're not asking for justice," Del Shea Perry said.  "We're demanding it."

The Editor says...
A noisy crowd outside the courthouse demanding a criminal conviction, as the trial has just begun, is almost exactly the same as a lynch mob.  The clear implication here is that rioting will break out if there is an acquittal.

"Not-Antifa Window Repair" is probably the funniest thing you'll watch today.  [Video clip]

Antifa 'armed' rioters descend on Oregon State Capitol in Salem.  Salem Police arrested at least three people and urged others to stay away from Oregon's State Capitol building Sunday evening as violence linked to Antifa-aligned protesters broke out.  The "heavily armed" crowd had grown to as many as 200 people, Fox 12 Portland reported.  The chaos unfolded as a planned right-wing protest and Antifa counter-protest were scheduled in Salem for the same day.  Police received reports of vehicles driving past the Capitol being struck with balloons filled with paint as well as green lasers being pointed at drivers.

Trump supporter pulls a gun on ANTIFA rioter who tried to smash his truck's windows during clash between rival groups.  This is the moment a Trump supporter pulled a gun on rock-throwing Antifa protesters after they vandalized his truck and maced him during a rally near the Oregon Capitol.  Footage captured the demonstrators spraying paint across the windshield of the man's truck and smashing the tail lights in Salem on Sunday [3/28/2021].  The driver, who was wearing an American flag sweatshirt, stepped out of his vehicle as he engaged with the protesters, who then appeared to mace him.  The video then shows him pulling out his gun and pointing it at the anti-fascist protesters. [...] As police arrived, the man could be seen putting his gun into the back of his truck before putting his hands up and kneeling on the ground.  The man was rubbing his eyes as the officer approached to arrest him.

ANTIFA Terrorists Throw Paint On Elderly Man's Car, Pepper Spray Him, Smash His Windows, Man Pulls Gun To Protect Himself, Salem Cop Arrests Elderly Man.  One thing has been made crystal clear by those who run Oregon:  STAY [...] OUT OF OREGON.  That is if you are one that believes in freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of not being assaulted at random, equal protections, those sorts of things.  This elderly man in Salam found out, none of those thing apply to him as ANTIFA terrorists destroyed his pickup for the crime of flying a flag off the rear bumper.  The gentleman's car first had paint tossed on it.  When he got out of the truck, he was pepper-sprayed, and then his passenger side window was smashed out.  At this point, the elderly man pulls a gun to get the mob away from his vehicle.  Now at this point of the story, you would have figured the cops, who were standing just about 50 feet away would have arrested a bunch of Black Blocheads but no, this cop pulls his gun and aims it at the victim, arrested the old man.  [Video clip]

Update:
Drivers Have to Go Through Gauntlet of Antifa Attacking Them, It Doesn't End Well for the Radicals.  My colleague Brandon Morse reported earlier about some of the Antifa violence in Salem, Oregon, about an encounter that one driver had with some of them.  The Antifa people attacked him, throwing rocks at his car and yellow paint.  Then when he got out of the car to see the damage, they bashed parts of his car more and maced him.  Bad move on their part because at that point he pulled out his gun to get them to back off.  Then the anti-police radicals suddenly were all hot to have the police respond to protect them, which is so hypocritical and hilarious.  When the police responded, they temporarily held and questioned the victim, but he was the victim and he was not charged.

The Commonalities Between the Rise of the Nazis and the Tactics of the American Left Cannot be Ignored.  [Scroll down]  Fifth, in the 1920's and early 30's the Nazi Party routinely relied on street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, the Sturmabteilung (SA), to project power through intimidation while blaming the communists for the violence.  Every time a riot was met with little or no response from the established authorities, the more emboldened they became.  While the Nazis ostensibly came to power through the ballot box, their ability to terrorize the citizenry and national political leadership played a major role as they promised peace on the streets if elected or given leadership positions in government.  The American left revealed in the summer of 2020 that they too have the wherewithal and inclination to provoke street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to project power through intimidation while blaming white supremacy and police brutality for the violence.  In the presidential campaign of 2020, the Democrat party implicitly promised peace on the streets if elected and insinuated there would be renewed violence if not.

Heavily Armed Antifa Clash With Drivers at Oregon's Capitol.  Armed members of the far-left Antifa network clashed with passing by motorists and counterprotesters outside Oregon's Capitol on Sunday [3/28/2021].  Video footage showed members of the anarcho-communist group assaulting people with pro-Trump and pro-law enforcement flags driving by the Capitol in Salem.  At one point, the crowd lobbed a rock directly at a driver, shattering his driver's side window.  Some of the group flew Antifa flags; the vast majority donned gear favored by the network, including all black clothing and items to obscure their faces from being identified by law enforcement.  Approximately 100 such individuals, armed with weapons such as guns, bats, and shields, arrived on the Capitol mall grounds shortly before noon, according to the Salem Police Department.  A police tweet described the group as "heavily armed."

Crackdown at Echo Park homeless encampment begins as LAPD moves in, clashes with protesters.  Authorities on Wednesday night [3/24/2021] moved to close down a homeless encampment in Echo Park that has become a highly charged test of city leaders' struggle to balance constituents' demands for clean streets and public spaces with the ever-growing tragedy of people who have no homes.  Scores of police moved into the area, where they were met by more than 200 protesters who oppose the sweep.  The Los Angeles Police Department repeatedly told protesters to leave, and by early Thursday morning, the crowd had dwindled and the protest had mostly wound down.

Facebook Scrubs Page Showing Supermarket Shooter Was Anti-Trump, Pro-Refugee Activist.  Facebook scrubbed a page belonging to Boulder supermarket shooter Ahmad Al-Issa that revealed the gunman was anti-Trump and had promoted pro-refugee, anti-Islamophobia activism.  Al-Issa was arrested after killing 10 people, including a police officer, during a rampage inside the King Soopers grocery store yesterday afternoon. [...] Journalist Andy Ngo reports that the page also revealed Al-Issa to be a "deeply religious Muslim."

Boulder Mass Shooting Suspect's Anti-Trump Posts Uncovered:  Obliterate 'Right-Wing Extremist' Claims.  The news broke on Tuesday [3/23/2021] that the name of the suspected mass shooter in the Boulder, Colorado supermarket incident was released.  The suspect, who is accused of killing ten innocent people, including a police officer, is named Ahmad al Alissa.  "Police have identified the suspect in the Boulder, Colo., shooting as Ahmad Alissa," the New York Daily News reported.  "The 21-year-old is charged with 10 counts of murder in the first degree in connection with the Monday afternoon shooting at the King Sooper supermarket, police said Tuesday at a press conference."  Reports also surfaced that the Biden administration has been briefed on potential ISIS sympathies.

Mainstream Journalist Sends Death Threats to Congressman Jeff Van Drew For Switching Party to Republican.  This morning [3/21/2021] on Maria Bartiromo's television program, congressman Jeff Van Drew shared details of death threats from a New Jersey journalist to himself and his family.  The reporter works for the Ocean City Sentinel and writes syndicated articles which are carried in numerous outlets.  [Video clip]

Minneapolis businesses rush to install security shutters after city changes rules to allow them.  Last week, for the first time in months, Dave Hautman took the plywood off his windows and rolled down new metal shutters to protect the Franklin-Nicollet Liquor Store from potential looters.  Though the retractable shutters cost more than $40,000, Hautman figures they will more than pay for themselves.  His store was hit by looters twice last year, racking up losses of more than $250,000.  "If we didn't have this kind of security, we'd just pack up and leave," said Hautman, general manager of the liquor store.  "You can't afford to keep going down this road.  It has just become lawless."

Rep. Van Drew addresses death threat from NJ columnist: 'Nobody's going to make me afraid'.  Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., said he is reviewing his legal options after his office revealed a threatening voicemail by Ocean City Sentinel guest columnist John McCall in the wake of his votes not to accept Arizona and Pennsylvania's Electoral College votes.  Van Drew said "I believe" he will press charges against McCall and said he would confer with his attorneys about a possible lawsuit.  The Republican told "Sunday Morning Futures" [3/21/2021] that even though the threat was shocking to him and his wife, he said it "doesn't worry me."

Anti-Lockdown Protesters Get Jumped, Assaulted In NYC Over The American Flag, MAGA Hats, Of Course.  A rally held in New York City against Covid-19 measures devolved into shouting matches and scuffles as police tried to separate anti-lockdown activists and counter-demonstrators.  Several dozen people gathered at Union Square on Saturday to voice their anger over the pandemic restrictions.  Some protesters were seen wearing patriotic costumes and MAGA hats as they listened to impromptu speeches by members of the crowd.

Violence Is Out of Control in Portland.  Maybe Defunding Police Wasn't Such a Great Idea.  The city of Portland, Oregon, is a mess.  This week, the city witnessed a telling, if predictable, incident.  Police had removed a fence erected around the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse because it became a "symbol of divide" between law enforcement and the community, according to the Portland Police Bureau.  Rioters then descended on the federal courthouse and vandalized it.  [Video clip]  Now the fence is back up.

Texas museum removes wax Trump figure after visitors kept punching it.  A wax museum in downtown San Antonio, Texas, removed its wax statue of former President Trump after it was repeatedly vandalized, the San Antonio Express-News reports.  Louis Tussaud's Waxworks pulled the figure from public view after it sustained multiple beatings and transferred it into storage.  The scratches on the Trump figure's face were especially damaging, said Clay Stewart, the regional manager of parent company Ripley's Entertainment.

Criminalizing Protest at the Capitol.  [Scroll down]  A second group of "protesters" that unequivocally demonstrates Democrat treachery, are the people who organized and participated in the hundreds of riots that started last year after the death of George Floyd in March.  Democrats lauded the protests, excused the rioters, and then cooperated by telling police to stand down, or by not prosecuting the few protester/rioters who were arrested.  The small number who were arrested and prosecuted received light sentences considering the crimes committed: looting, arson, assault, vandalism, and murder.  The people of our country are now faced with a choice: will we allow our criminal justice system to be inverted so that the innocent are punished and the guilty go free?  Or will we object, make our voices heard, and reverse this evil trend?  Unfortunately, it isn't so simple.  As we saw in 2020, the people of this country no longer have a voice at the ballot box.

Will [the] Left's Violent Tendencies Lead To U.S. Breakup Or Dictatorship?  The Democratic Party's far-left wing — or is that redundant? — has pursued a relentless gaslighting campaign against conservatives.  It goes like this:  Pay no attention to the Democrat fringe's insane violence of the last year, members of the conservative right are the real troglodytes, prone to extreme political savagery.  The Big Media, ambling in their own leftist zombie trance, repeat the mantra over and over.  Only problem:  It's utterly false[.]  It should be no surprise that it's actually the left that has violent proclivities.  And now, new data clearly back up what we've known instinctively.

Minneapolis's No-Go Zone.  The Seattle "Autonomous Zone" got a lot of publicity before it was finally dismantled, but many people do not realize that Minneapolis has its own no-go area where law enforcement is absent and "militants" rule.  It is the area that surrounds the George Floyd Memorial.  A man was shot and killed in the Memorial area last weekend, the fourth such death since the zone was closed to law enforcement.

Two Men Arrested for Assaulting Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, Who Died After Jan. 6 Breach.  Authorities on Monday [3/15/2021] confirmed two suspects were arrested and charged for assaulting Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who reportedly died after the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, although his cause of death has not been disclosed.  In a news release from the Department of Justice, Julian Elie Khater, 32, of State College, Pennsylvania, and George Pierre Tanios, 39, of Morgantown, West Virginia, were taken into custody on Sunday in connection to the incident.  They were charged with conspiring to injure officers and assaulting federal officers, among other charges, during the Jan. 6 incident, the DOJ said.  Khater was arrested after he got off an airplane at the Newark Airport in New Jersey, while Tanios was arrested at his West Virginia home.

Joy Behar:  Antifa [is] 'an idea,' [and] 'not a real thing'.  "The View" co-host Joy Behar claimed Monday [3/15/2021] that Antifa is "an idea" and "not a real thing" during a heated discussion with co-host Meghan McCain.  During an on-air discussion about the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot, Ms. McCain noted the ongoing Antifa-led riots in Portland, Oregon, and how the left-wing, so-called "anti-fascist" movement has a history of property destruction and violence against law enforcement.  "Antifa does exist," Ms. McCain said.  "What separates Antifa is their willingness to use violence.  I have very good friends who have been reporting on Antifa for months, and months, and months. ... The idea that Antifa doesn't exist is just factually inaccurate and wrong and a lie."

Police detain more than 100 Portland protesters in apparent kettling.  Portland police detained a crowd of over 100 protesters during a Friday night demonstration, stemming a march only minutes after it began.  The mass detainment was an apparent use of kettling, a police tactic of surrounding a crowd and containing people within a perimeter.  Police told the crowd they were detaining everyone within the boundary for the "investigation of a crime" but did not specify the nature of the alleged crime. [...] The kettling of Portland protesters most recently garnered attention in January after two federal judges either dismissed or recommended throwing out civil suits, including one filed by the ACLU of Oregon, that challenged the police practice.

The January 6th 'Insurrection' that Wasn't.  The "attack" on the Capitol started well before then President Trump finished his speech at the rally at The Ellipse.  This attack was no spontaneous event as alleged by Democrats, the Media, and the Radical Left.  It is evident to any police officer who has been on a police line this attack was preplanned when coupled with the intelligence compiled by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and other agencies.  From the videos, this is self-evident, e.g., coordination, tactics in engaging the police lines, hand signals, gas masks, bear spray, goggles, helmets, knee pads, improvised weapons, and milk to neutralize crowd control gasses.  It is indisputable the Capitol Police were understaffed and immediately overrun within seconds of the attack.  The attack began some twenty-minutes before the former President finished his speech.  Others observed a noticeable lack of law enforcement presence that is usually SOP for these "peaceful rallies and protests" around the Capitol.

The *REAL* Insurrection Effort in Portland Oregon, Rioters Set Fire to Federal Courthouse, Break Windows.  The irony over the deployment of the national guard, fencing and barbed wire around the DC capitol exists because there never has been a "right-wing extremist" insurrection effort in DC yet the Biden administration and Democrats use that false narrative as justification for Speaker Pelosi's armed encampment.  The U.S. media are currently pushing that false narrative with every opportunity.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the nation in Portland Oregon, an actual "left-wing extremist" insurrection effort has been taking place for months; yet the national media ignore it and the Biden administration — together with Speaker Pelosi — pretend not to know about it.

It's time for Red States to start nullifying federal law.  Here are some of the issues that could be affected by the concept of nullification:  [...] [#4] Nullify the anti-police agenda.  During the Obama regime, his DoJ hamstrung city police departments all over the country with phony "civil rights" investigations, resulting in cities hesitant to arrest or prosecute violent thugs.  With anti-police activists surrounding Biden, his administration will do the same, thereby empowering leftist rioters in our cities.  The founders never gave the federal government a law enforcement role as they thought this responsibility best be carried out by local police and sheriff departments.  States should resist and ignore all federal anti-police regulations and DoJ harassment of local police departments.

Portland burns AGAIN: Federal agents shoot tear gas at Antifa protesters setting fire to American flags and smashing windows outside boarded-up courthouse.  Antifa protesters have burned American flags and clashed with cops outside the Federal Courthouse in downtown Portland.  The ugly scenes occurred Thursday evening, as dozens of the far-left protesters assembled in the area for a demonstration against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The Courthouse has already been boarded up with plywood after sustaining damage during destructive protests last summer, but shocking video shared to Twitter shows all remaining uncovered windows were smashed during the latest demonstration.

Cops detain an entire block of Antifa protesters on the second night of chaos in Portland:  Activists smash windows.  Police have clashed with Antifa protesters during a second consecutive night of unrest in Portland.  The ugly scenes occurred Friday [3/12/2021] after a group of activists assembled to march against the Department of Homeland Security.  One local journalist claimed that between 100 and 150 protesters started making their way through the city's Pearl District before they began 'breaking the windows of businesses' and 'attacking' anyone who was filming them.

Man arrested in string of incidents in Seattle in which brake lines, tires were cut.  The Seattle Police Department announced Friday [3/12/2021] that is has arrested a suspect believed to have slashed brake lines and tires on dozens of parked vehicles over the past three months, most of which occurred in the southern part of the city.  Police confirmed to KOMO News that Mowlid Mohamed, 36, was taken into custody in connection with the vehicle incidents and was booked early Friday morning into the jail in Des Moines on an outstanding felony warrant violation, according to a written statement by Seattle police.

Antifa Comes Back for More, Sets Fire to Portland Federal Courthouse.  Yesterday [3/11/2021], radical leftists attacked the federal courthouse in Portland during the day, trying to break in, smashing windows and throwing a liquid at one of the security officers.  They also stormed a Wells Fargo and a Chase Bank.  At Chase, there was a scuffle with a security guard causing him to pull a gun on them.  But that wasn't all.  Antifa came back last night to try to burn the building down again as they have been trying for months.

BLM/Antifa Folks Storm Banks in Portland, Try To Break Into Federal Courthouse, It Doesn't Go Well.  While Democratic politicians obsess about a three hour riot that happened months ago, leftist riots attacking the government continue apace, not that Democrats care or are paying any attention. [Numerous video clips] [...] Unfortunately what they're doing about it is absolutely nothing because leftists.  Even were any of these folks to be arrested, their charges would be dismissed.  They know they're completely free to do whatever they want without any fear of being locked up for anything.  Good thing the Guard is in D.C. where there's no threat and not in Portland which has been under constant threat for almost a year.  Paging Joe Biden!  This is the federal government being attacked.  What is your response?

My Democrat Friends are Getting Very Embarrassed.  My friends are belatedly realizing that the turmoil was not created by Donald Trump.  It was manufactured by the Democrats, simply to win an election.  The Democrats embraced socialists and anarchists (even though they never play well together) to create the turmoil, and now they can't turn it off.  Radical elements of the left are political vampires.  Once invited in, it's not so easy to get them to leave.  The Democrats are stuck with the radicals, even though the voters aren't.  But I don't get angry.  As my friends complain, I keep reminding them that this is what they asked for.

George Floyd memorial site [is] reportedly now an anti-cop autonomous zone.  Left-wing militants have reportedly turned a memorial site for George Floyd in Minneapolis into a "volatile" autonomous zone — where police and even other protesters aren't welcome.  The memorial, called George Floyd Square, popped up in the days after the 46-year-old's police-involved death on May 25 — the catalyst for a global movement against police brutality and racial inequality.  But since then, a militant-style group has taken over the blocks-long site, creating a hostile situation for authorities and protesters alike, NewsNation Now reported.  "The situation at the memorial, from what I understand, is its kind of volatile," Kim Griffin, a Minneapolis resident, told the outlet.  "People that want to go and support doesn't feel a sense of inclusion.  There is more of a like militant-type atmosphere over there and a sense of fear."

The Roots of Insurrection:  Antifa Exposed.  Antifa's recent rise coincides with that of BLM, which draws on the black power movement of the 1960-70s.  Now linked, they share the goal of upending liberal democracy and the rule of law while purporting to fight racism, sexism, homophobia, and capitalism.  They aim to abolish law enforcement, property rights, national borders, American jurisprudence, free markets, and free speech.  Antifa advocates window-breaking, looting, and arson as valid and powerful protests, deeming such actions "self-defense" against an "unjust" system.  Typically, Antifa announces a gathering to oppose an event it disagrees with through social-media blasts.  Members arrive in intimidating and protective black bloc — black clothing, ski masks, scarves, sunglasses, and helmets.  The use of pepper spray, batons, bats, brass knuckles, frozen water bottles, and "milkshakes" is encouraged.  Many carry weapons and are trained to gouge out eyes, break ribs, and deliver hits to the liver and kidneys.

The Feds Chose an Odd Time to Remove Protection Around Antifa's Favorite Riot Target in Portland.  The Department of Homeland Security has chosen a most odd time to take down the F-word and ACAB-festooned fencing and jersey barriers protecting the federal courthouse in Portland.  Last May, after a fentanyl-addled George Floyd was held down for an agonizingly long time (nine minutes) under the knee of Officer Derek Chauvin, riots broke out in his name, at first in Minneapolis and then across the country, especially in "woke" Portland.  Fast forward to now, when Chauvin's trial is underway.  Minneapolis has spent $1 million to secure buildings already trashed in last year's rioting and looting.  But Portland, where arguably the worst of the George Floyd riots occurred, is going in the other direction.  Floyd was busted for trying to pass a forged $20 bill to buy some cigarettes.  It was far from Floyd's first problem with cops, but it was his last.  His death touched off a conflagration in Minneapolis and the rioting and looting followed in Los Angeles, Louisville, Denver, Memphis, Seattle, and several other places, and, of course, the ground-zero of Wokistan — Portland, Oregon.

FBI Rleases New Video of Suspect Planting Pipe Bombs in DC on January 5th — But....  [Scroll down]  The FBI is in the business of creating, engineering and supporting political narratives.  The FBI is a political institution, that's why the request doesn't align with the system... they don't really want the public's help; because it is pushing and promoting the investigation itself that is the goal.  Once you accept the FBI is a political organization with political interests, expectations and objectives, then everything makes sense.

New FBI Footage Shows Suspect Connected To Pipe Bombs At DNC, RNC.  The FBI released new footage Tuesday [3/9/2021] of a suspect connected to two pipe bombs left at the headquarters for the Republican and Democratic parties before the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.  The video appears to show the suspect walking on a sidewalk with a backpack to the areas where the bombs were later discovered.  The footage occurred between 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5, which FBI officials have said is when they believe the bombs were planted.  The suspect wore a gray hoodie and black and gray Nike Air Max Speed Turf shoes with a yellow logo, and had on a face mask, the FBI said.  It added that it was hoping the new footage would lead someone to recognize the person's "gait, body language, or mannerisms" to identify them.

Feds Quietly Dismiss Dozens of Cases Against Antifa Extremists Who Terrorized Downtown Portland Last Summer.  Federal prosecutors have "quietly dismissed" 34 of 90 cases stemming from the violent riots in downtown Portland last summer, and many more federal charges are expected to be dismissed soon, KGW8 reported this week.  Cases being dismissed include felony charges such as assaults on federal officers, court records show.  According to KGW, more than half of the dropped charges were "dismissed with prejudice," which means the case can't be brought back to court.  And at least 11 of the dismissed cases were reportedly dropped on or after the inauguration of Mr. Biden.

The Left's Revolution Is Just Getting Started — More Riots Are Planned.  The perhaps $2 billion in property damages suffered across the nation in 2020 were not the product of spontaneous, peaceful demonstrations designed to call attention to abuses and recommend reforms.  They were carefully orchestrated revolutionary actions by a wide, sprawling network of well-funded groups — Black Lives Matter (BLM), Antifa, Redneck Revolt, Liberation Road and many more, which seeks to destroy the existing capitalist and democratic system and replace it with an expressly Marxist state.

Merrick Garland Testifies That Antifa Attacks Against Portland Federal Courthouse Probably [was] Not Domestic Terrorism.  During Merrick Garland Senate Judiciary Confirmation hearing earlier today [2/22/2021], Garland testified that Antifa violence against law enforcement at the Portland Federal Courthouse may not be domestic terrorism since it happened at night.  His rationale appears to be that there was no intent to disrupt government or threaten lives, however the courthouse is occupied 24/7.

Capitol rioter who allegedly assaulted cops with fire extinguisher ID'd as Robert Scott Palmer.  A US Capitol rioter who allegedly assaulted police with a fire extinguisher says President Biden wants to "vilify the patriots" who breached the building, according to a report that revealed his identity Friday [3/5/2021].  Robert Scott Palmer, 53, was allegedly captured on camera spraying officers at close range then throwing the emptied canister at them while wearing an easy-to-spot American flag jacket on Jan. 6, the Huffington Post reported.  Reached by phone, the Florida father — who runs a cleaning business and has a criminal record — griped that cops at the Capitol launched crowd-control munition at him for no good reason, according to the outlet.

Trump supporters clash with ANTIFA in Manhattan after unfurling a huge flag of Pelosi as a demon outside Trump Tower.  Supporters of former President Donald Trump marched down Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on Friday [3/5/2021] as they carried enormous banners that read 'Trump 2024'.  The event was billed as a 'Trump Save America Flag Unfurling' and featured all sort of Trump signage including one banner that depicted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a demon.  Towards the end of the event, the Trump marchers clashed with some angry New Yorkers and which the Right Side Broadcasting Network claimed was a group of 'Antifa' and Black Lives Matter activists, leading to the arrest of six people.

Forensic analysis shows internal components of pipe bombs found outside RNC and DNC.  An unclassified document from federal investigators shows forensic findings and analysis of a pair of pipe bombs planted blocks from each other outside the headquarters of the Democratic and Republican parties in Washington, D.C., and discovered by authorities on Jan. 6., the day of the U.S. Capitol riot.  The "Quick Look Report" by the National Explosives Task Force, obtained by CBS News, offers the most in-depth look at the internal components of the explosive devices that authorities believe were planted the night before the attack on Congress by a suspect who, to this day, eludes capture.  The FBI is offering $100,000 in reward money for information leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of anyone involved in the placing of the bombs, which were safely detonated at the scene by robots, according to CNN.

Feds quietly dismiss dozens of Portland protest cases.  Federal prosecutors have dismissed more than one-third of cases stemming from last summer's violent protests in downtown Portland, when protesters clashed with federal agents.  KGW reviewed federal court records and found 31 of the 90 protest cases have been dismissed by the U.S. Department of Justice, including a mix of misdemeanor and felony charges.  Some of the most serious charges dropped include four defendants charged with assaulting a federal officer, which is a felony.  More than half of the dropped charges were "dismissed with prejudice," which several former federal prosecutors described as extremely rare.  "Dismissed with prejudice" means the case can't be brought back to court.

The Left's Campaign Against Self-Defense.  Last week, federal prosecutors offered an undisclosed plea deal to two lawyers who firebombed an NYPD van and drove around passing out Molotov cocktails to protesters at a violent May 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest in Brooklyn. [...] In the name of "social justice," politicians and the judiciary in many cities and states are bestowing moral rights on violent left-wing and anarchist groups.  District attorney Mike Schmidt, for instance, announced in August that he won't prosecute most of the 550 people arrested during the 75 days of mayhem in Portland last spring.  He said the leniency was an attempt to "create a forum" to express "collective grief, anger, and frustration" at the death of George Floyd and the history of abuses endured by people of color.  Worse, he said using the criminal justice system against them would "undermine public safety" for those "demanding to be heard." Schmidt, his Democrat cohort, and leftist sympathizers in journalism, law, and academia willfully ignore the fact that such misplaced clemency condones and encourages militant groups' violence, their disrespect for the law, and their anti-American agenda.

Michigan National Guard [was] Served Undercooked, Moldy Food While in Washington D.C..  Politicians love to talk about solutions to problems that they helped create and while they do, everyday Americans get caught in the crosshairs of their idiocy.  For this story though, it is not just any everyday Americans but those who serve in the Michigan National Guard who have been entangled in a political mess not of their doing.

The Editor says...
The National Guard did not serve the food.  The food was served to them.  The omission of verbs is the difference between English and Headline-ese.

Raw chicken, moldy bread and Metal Shavings:  The disgusting meals which have hospitalized Michigan National Guard troops in DC.  Members of the Michigan National Guard complain they have been forced to eat raw chicken, moldy bread and meals containing metal shavings while they remain on guard in Washington DC protecting the US Capitol from attack.  More than a dozen soldiers on deployment have become ill — with some serious enough to be hospitalized — after reportedly being given undercooked and contaminated food.  Soldiers have blown the whistle on the sub-par food supplied by to troops stationed in DC by a National Guard contractor.  They shared photos of pink chicken, uncooked beef and moldy food with lawmakers and online while one staff sergeant revealed dozens of meals had to be thrown out when metal shavings were found inside dishes.  A group of bipartisan lawmakers are now demanding a new food vendor is brought in, or for troops to be given a daily allowance to buy their own food.  Some are calling for guard members to be sent home altogether.

The January 6 'insurrection'.  The disturbance at the Capitol on Jan. 6 is routinely described as a "deadly insurrection."  The riots that took place during the summer and caused between 1 and 2 billion dollars in damage and at least 17 deaths are described as "peaceful."  The only death that can be attributed directly to the violence on Jan. 6 was the death of a woman shot by police in violation of any law enforcement's rules of engagement.  It is clear that the government and the Deep State media are not giving an accurate picture of what took place.  You did not need a crystal ball to know that violent groups would use the gathering to promote violence.  Past experience with mass gatherings, such as Trump's inauguration in 2017 should have required increased security.  Yet, according to the Washington Post, "Capitol Police did not take the kind of extra precautions, such as frozen zones and hardened barriers, that are typically used for major events near the Capitol."  Former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving said "We all believed that the plan met the threat and that we were prepared."  Some of their confidence was based on previous Trump rallies.  Trump supporters had held dozens of mass meetings in the recent past.  Police were assaulted in none of them.

Merrick Garland Is in the Dark about Antifa.  [Scroll down]  Seriously, if you watched only the carefully curated national news, you'd have gotten the impression that (a) Antifa doesn't exist; (b) Antifa is a civic betterment movement led by the public-spirited Wall of Moms; and (c) The peaceful protesters of Antifa were the Gandhi-like victims of Trumpian brutality.  On the other hand, some of us who are Pacific time zone night owls watched hundreds of Andy Ngo videos of what was happening in Seattle and Portland during the wee hours long after the national media had called a lid on their coverage of the Peaceful Protests.  In Ngo's simple video footage, the Antifada sure looked extremist and terrorizing.

Think twice before you sign up for the National Guard.
Whistleblower: Poor food quality at US Capitol making National Guard members sick.  There's a disturbing problem facing Michigan National Guard troops guarding the U.S. Capitol — their food.  A whistleblower said nearly 75 meals were thrown out Sunday [2/28/2021] after metal shavings were found, other meals showed up undercooked making soldiers sick.  A staff sergeant with the Michigan National Guard, whose identity is being protected, says the problem is not isolated.  "Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them," the sergeant said.  "Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food."

Whistleblower Points Out National Guard Troops Intentionally Targeted Via Undercooked Food and Metal Shavings.  The DC leftists have installed national guard troops throughout Washington DC to accompany the fencing and barbed-wire that now blocks access to Capitol Hill.  The intent of the effort has been to create and promote a political narrative that "extremists" are targeting the Biden administration.  However, the claims bear no factual evidence.  The justification for the continued deployment of the troops surround the originating fraudulent presentation of the "storming of the Capitol" that took place January 6th.  However, as almost everyone understands the far-left do not support the U.S. military; and as a result the stationed troops now appear to be targeted by twisted people contracted by DC politicians to feed our troops.

Hellhole Portland:  Defunded Police Were Too Busy With Shootings to Stop Antifa Rioters.  On Saturday night [2/27/2021], a mob of antifa rioters ravaged the Pearl District of Portland, smashing windows and spray-painting anti-police messages on businesses, including a Safeway, a Starbucks, and a Chipotle, among others.  Police resources to deal with the riot had been strained by multiple shootings in the city that same evening.  Rioters terrorized at least one person still inside the Chipotle when they attacked the building.  Rioters spray-painted "ACAB," which stands for "all cops are b[...]s," on the location.  [Video clip]

The Progressives are the extremists.  Progressives are the extremists when it came to the "mostly violent" riots that took place last summer.  Deep State authorities stood by and did nothing while insurrectionists killed and beat up innocent bystanders as well as stole, destroyed, and set fire to private property.  Deep State politicians like Kamala Harris did nothing to stop the riots except bail the rioters out of jail.

'When does it end?': Restaurant owner boards up windows ahead of planned rally in NW Portland.  A planned protest happening this weekend in Northwest Portland has some business owners on edge.  The Fields Bar and Grill was vandalized on Feb. 26, and now the owner is boarding up the windows and doors as a precaution.  The protest is planned at a park that is just a couple of blocks away from his restaurant.  "We have removed everything that could possibly cause damage tonight," Jim Rice, the owner, said.  "When these people come through, and we've lost an entire day of business which means that's impacting my team member's wages."  Portland Mayor Ted Wheelers and Commission Dan Ryan have filed an ordinance that would make it easier for businesses to install security lights and gates, which is set to be considered on March 3.

Portland protesters smash businesses as locals scream at them to 'go home'.  Protesters smashed up several businesses during the latest night of destruction in Portland, Oregon — with fed-up locals screaming at them to "go home," according to reports.  Around 150 black-clad protesters marched through the troubled City of Roses late Saturday, trashing businesses during "direct action" against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Oregonian said.  "Windows were broken at a grocery store, restaurant, bank, shipping business, and multiple coffee shops," Portland police said of the two-hour rampage.  Targets included a Chipotle, Starbucks and even an Urban Pantry, KOIN News said, with social media images showing anti-ICE graffiti also scrawled across numerous buildings, including the ICE buidling.

Biden revokes Trump order to cut funding from New York City, Portland and Seattle 'anarchist' havens after BLM protests.  President Joe Biden on Wednesday [2/124/2021] formally revoked a series of presidential orders and memorandum signed by Donald Trump, including one that sought to cut funding from several cities he deemed 'anarchist' havens and another mandating that federal buildings should be designed in a classical aesthetic.  Since taking office last month, Biden has revoked dozens of Trump orders and issued dozens more of his own as he's sought to target foundational aspects of Trump's legacy and promote aspect of his own agenda without going through Congress.  The latest slate of revocations targeted a grab-bag of issues, including a few that Trump signed in his last months in office.

Feds offer plea deal to lawyers accused of tossing Molotov cocktail into NYPD vanduring George Floyd protest.  Two lawyers accused of tossing a Molotov cocktail into an empty NYPD car during the George Floyd protests last year were quietly offered a plea deal by federal prosecutors, according to court papers filed Saturday.  The offer was tucked away in a routine status report in the case and contained no details about the specifics of the deal.  The feds said they had extended plea offers to the two on Feb. 11, and that the defense was now looking it over.  The lawyers, Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis, faced life sentences when indicted in June by federal prosecutors in Brooklyn.  They were caught on video May 29 outside the 88th Precinct in Fort Greene on May 29.

Ex-Capitol Police, security officials testify at Senate hearing that riot was 'coordinated attack'.  Security officials testified Tuesday that they believe the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 was a "coordinated attack" as they were pressed by senators over the circumstances leading to the security failure.  Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger and former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, as well as Metropolitan Police Department acting chief Robert Contee, appeared before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday, in the first Senate hearing to examine the "security failures" that led to the breach of the U.S. Capitol last month.

Law Enforcement Confirms What We Already Knew About The Capitol Riots, Obliterates Democrats' Narrative.  Law enforcement officials testifying before a joint Senate hearing on Tuesday [2/23/2021] confirmed their belief that the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol building was planned before the day of the event.  This information completely annihilates the Democrats' narrative regarding the assault on the Capitol building.  The Hill reported, "Top current and former law enforcement officials testifying Tuesday before a joint Senate hearing on the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol told lawmakers that evidence pointed to coordination and planning behind the mob of people that overwhelmed Capitol Police officers during the attack."  Former Capitol police chief Steven Sund told members of the Senate that several factors led the authorities to believe that the riots were preplanned, and not spontaneous as Democrats have suggested.

I Saw Provocateurs At The Capitol Riot On Jan. 6.  The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.  A small number of cadre appeared to use the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack.  Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol what appeared to be four separate cells or units:
  [#1]   Plainclothes militants.  Militant, aggressive men in Donald Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
  [#2]   Agents-provocateurs.  Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
  [#3]   Fake Trump protesters.  A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
  [#4]   Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers.  A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.
All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor.  However, they did not all appear at the same time.  Not until the very end did it appear there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force.

"I Wish We Could Just Blow Up All The Trump Buildings." MSNBC Guest Wants to Cancel President Trump.  MSNBC guest and writer-at-large for The Bulwark Tim Miller said Wednesday that he wishes Americans could "blow up all the Trump buildings" and erase former President Donald Trump from their memory "Men In Black style."  Miller appeared on "Deadline:  White House" and listened as host Nicolle Wallace began the discussion with a video of Wednesday's implosion of the former Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

How to Push Back Against a Bully.  Did a Minneapolis policeman's decision to sit on the neck of George Floyd on May 25 really "cause" the summer of violence, namely the one that Antifa, BLM, and their Democratic sponsors unleashed in every major American city?  Did a single killing in Minneapolis cause organized wars against "systemic racism" here and in Canada and then in Western Europe, with accompanying looting and burning?  Were people cancelled and fired, statues toppled, streets and buildings renamed according to quickly ratcheted-up standards of political correctness all because of an event in Minneapolis last spring?  The obvious answer is no.  Crises are generated when those in power decide to generate them.  The media can throw oil on the flames whenever they decide it is in their interest to do so.  Universities and other "institutions of learning" will then join the fray, together with their comrades in the deep state, who are always eager to fight "prejudice."  The fact is, we are dealing with a power complex that can turn even minor incidents into violent demonstrations and calls for government action to end "discrimination" and to ferret out and punish "white supremacists."

2 from Rochester arrested in Mexico, charged with arson.  Two fugitives from Rochester were arrested in Mexico and have been charged with an arson indictment.  The U.S. Attorney's Office said 34-year-old Jose Angel Felan, Jr., and 22-year-old Mena Dhaya Yousif were detained by Mexican authorities for immigration violations on Monday.  A superseding indictment charges Felan with three counts of arson and Yousif with being an accessory to arson for their roles in multiple arsons on May 28, 2020, the attorney's office said.

Rioting for profit:
CNN And NBC Both Paid $35,000 To Left-Wing Activist For Footage Of Fatal Capitol Shooting.  A left-wing activist facing criminal charges for his involvement in the Capitol riots received $35,000 from both CNN and NBC for footage he recorded of a Trump supporter being fatally shot inside the Capitol building, according to records he filed in federal court on Tuesday [2/16/2021].  Lawyers for John Sullivan, a 26-year-old Utah native, disclosed the payments as part of the activist's argument that he was acting as a journalist in the Capitol rather than a rioter.  "Defendant is legitimately self-employed as a documentarian and it is oppressive to require that he not be allowed to continue his primary area of employment for an extended period of time," Steven R. Kiersh, the Sullivan lawyer, wrote in a court filing in which he argued for Sullivan to be allowed to continue using Facebook and Twitter.

Morning Joe Calls Businesses Destroyed in BLM, Antifa Riots Nothing More Than 'Taco Stands'.  'Morning Joe' Scarborough faced a growing backlash on social media Tuesday after diminishing family-run businesses destroyed in 'Black Lives Matter' and Antifa protests over the summer as nothing more than "taco stands."  "No, [...] I'm not going to confuse a taco stand with the United States Capitol.  I'm not going to confuse the selling of tacos with actually moving through a Constitutional process," said Morning Joe.  Economists say thousands of businesses were torched in major cities across the country resulting in tens of billions of dollars in damages and insurance pay-outs.

Massive Brawl During NYC BLM Event, 11 Arrested, 2 Cops Injured.  A Black Lives Matter march through Midtown Manhattan turned violent Friday night [2/12/2021], with 11 protesters arrested.  The NYPD reported that two officers suffered minor injuries during the protest, which was attended by about 100 marchers; officials could not immediately say how the cops were hurt.  At least some of those arrested were accused of attacking Daily News photographer Sam Costanza at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and 54th Street in the mistaken belief that he was a cop, sources said.

Downtown Nordstrom display windows valued at more than $50,000 each smashed Sunday.  Glass entrance doors and nine display windows running the entire length of the ground floor at Nordstrom's flagship downtown store were damaged Sunday night [2/14/2021], likely with a hammer, police said Monday.  Officers reported arriving at the scene at around 9:45 p.m. "after dealing with multiple protests earlier in the evening around the south end of the city," though the report did not say whether the vandalism was connected to the protests.  In the redacted report, the larger windowpanes were valued at "somewhere between 50-70 thousand dollars apiece due to their thickness and a protective film that internally self-adheres after strikes or damage," by an individual whose name was blacked out.

Waiting for the Umbrella Man or someone like him.  Who can take a city, burn it to the ground?  The Umbrella Man can, at least according to the search warrant application/affidavit filed by Minneapolis police officer Erika Christensen this past summer.  Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany told me he came across Christensen's affidavit in a routine review of court filings. [...] According to Officer Christensen, Umbrella Man is a white supremacist who set off the week of riots and arson throughout the Twin Cities by knocking out the windows at AutoZone on Lake Street at Minnehaha Avenue in south Minneapolis on May 27. Did Umbrella Man also burn the AutoZone down? [...] Officer Christensen's account of events was taken at face value in the numerous news accounts that immediately followed the Star Tribune story, but it is ludicrous.  Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey is responsible for the key event that led to the destruction wrought throughout the Twin Cities following the death of George Floyd.  The key event was the abandonment of the Third Precinct headquarters on May 28.

Waiting for the Umbrella Man or someone like him, cont'd.  Law enforcement has had the benefit of the Umbrella Man suspect's cell phone records for nearly seven months, yet no charges have been brought.  He remains at large.  According to the Minneapolis police, the investigation is continuing.

2 NYPD officers injured, photographer attacked during violent BLM demonstration — 11 arrested.  Two officers were injured and 11 protesters were arrested during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in New York City Friday night [2/12/2021], the New York Post reported.  Two NYPD officers sustained minor injuries and it was unclear whether other officers were injured while responding to the demonstration, the Post reported.  Some of the protesters were arrested for attacking Daily News photographer Sam Costanza because they reportedly thought he was a law enforcement officer.

Seattle Antifa Show How Childish and Dangerous They Are.  These are literally children in adult bodies.  That's my takeaway from this new video of Seattle Antifa acting like idiots from Andy Ngo.  The group piled up snow in front of the ramp where police vehicles are dispatched from.  This prevented Seattle PD from being able to respond to calls, at least with these specific units at this station.  Given people often call the police because they are in life-threatening situations, it can't be overstated how dangerous this is.  This is the equivalent of protesters a road and stopping ambulances from getting to a hospital.  [Video clip]  You may be asking yourself why there isn't a follow-up video of these people being put in handcuffs.  The answer is simple.  The Seattle government, from the Mayor, to the prosecutors, to the leadership at the police department, have taken a hands off approach with Antifa.

Portland protesters hit cops with snowballs, break businesses' windows.  Even winter has become a weapon for BLM and Antifa protesters in Portland and Seattle.  Antifa protesters reportedly shoveled snow into a tall heap to block a garage driveway at the Seattle East Precinct on Saturday night [2/13/2021].  The snow "prevented patrol vehicles from responding to calls," Katie Daviscourt, a local reporter and videographer for The Post Millennial, tweeted early Sunday, along with video of a blocked cop car.  In Portland on Friday night, a group of protesters took a break from smashing windows to pelt police officers with snowballs in a decidedly one-sided snowball fight, authorities said.  About 30 to 50 people gathered in downtown Portland around 8 p.m. Friday and marched to Central Precinct, where they began yelling and throwing objects at the officers, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

Team Trump Exposes Democrat 'Incitement' in Hard-Hitting Video.  On Friday [2/12/2021], lawyers for former President Donald Trump presented a few hard-hitting videos contrasting Trump's calls for peace and law and order with Democrats encouraging harassment and coddling Black Lives Matter and antifa rioters over the last summer.  "To claim that the president in any way wished, desired, or encouraged lawless or violent behavior is a preposterous and monstrous lie," Michael Van Der Veen, one of Trump's lawyers, argued.  Van Der Veen presented a video contrasting Trump's law-and-order remarks and remarks from Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).  Pelosi had said, "I just don't even know why there aren't uprisings all over the country.  Maybe there will be."  Waters had notoriously encouraged supporters to harass Trump administration staff in public places.  Biden had said that if he was in high school, he would "beat the hell out of" Trump.

Senate committee should examine all types of political violence.  When political violence and lawlessness are allowed to thrive, it erodes the foundations of civil society and threatens the health of the republic itself.  If the nation is to avoid this grievous outcome, there must be a swift bipartisan response that deals with such violence in all of its forms.  Newly sworn in Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner, the New York Times reports, plans to "examine the influence of Russia and other foreign powers on anti-government extremist groups like the ones that helped mobilize the deadly attack on the Capitol last month." [...] But if Warner is serious, both about the investigation being bipartisan and about being concerned with foreign powers stoking violence, he should also look into the influences on the riots that tore through U.S. cities in the summer — lighting businesses on fire, toppling statues, assaulting police officers, attacking federal buildings, and beating innocent people.

Flashback: 41% of Democrats Said Violence May Be Necessary If Trump Wins.  Social media and the media operate using trends while ignoring and erasing everything that happened a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. [...] NPR, like other media publications, never bother reporting on the level of Democrat support for violence.  That's a good reminder that our media literally operates like a propaganda service out of North Korea, China, or Russia.  And isn't even pretending to be anything else.  Democrat support for political violence may have dropped.  Not because Democrats have become more peaceful, but because they've taken power.  The Bolshevik support for political violence against the regime vanished the moment that they became the regime.  But even that's not clear.

Five Times Joe Biden Openly Urged Violence Against Political Opponents.  [#1] In 2018, Biden fantasized about hurting North Dakota Republican Sen. Kevin Cramer, who was then challenging a Democratic incumbent.  "I'd like to give him a high threshold of pain," Biden said.  "I'm serious.  I'm really serious."  [Video clip] [#2] Biden made the same remark at a campaign event for the state's Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, encouraging the president of a trade union in attendance to "show [Cramer] a threshold of pain."  [Video clip] [...] The Democratic Party itself normalized political violence as the primary means for individuals to make their voices heard after spending all last year justifying militant Black Lives Matter riots that erupted in repeated outbursts across the country, because racism.

Insurrection In Washington.  The fascist organization Antifa does not exist, according to Democratic Party orthodoxy, so our news media avert their collective eyes from its depredations.  Ignoring Antifa isn't so easy if you live in cities that are under siege, like Portland, Seattle, and, in this case, Bellingham, Washington, which is north of Seattle and south of Vancouver.  This police body cam video was filmed on January 28, released some days later and tweeted yesterday by one of America's few actual journalists — an almost extinct profession — Andy Ngo.  As Andy notes, during an Antifa attack on City Hall last month, the Mayor of Bellingham (unlike Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) had to be evacuated.  Sounds like an insurrection, but for some reason it hasn't been in the headlines.  [Video clip]

Uncovering Maxine Waters' Full 2018 Speech:  Democrat Celebrated 'Kicking' And 'Stepping On' Donald Trump.  Since giving a speech in 2018, Maxine Waters has faced criticism for the alleged incitement of violence.  "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd.  And you push back on them," Waters told a crowd of supporters at a Los Angeles rally in June 2018.  "And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."  With Donald Trump being accused of inciting the violence witnessed in Washington D.C. in January, Waters has faced renewed accusations of similar incitement — accusations that often reference the widespread violence which exploded across multiple American cities throughout 2020.  Speaking with MSNBC, Waters — who is also chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee — was asked whether she could say that she had not encouraged violence against conservatives.

Two busted for dirty-diaper attack on conservative reporter.  Two men were busted for rubbing a dirty diaper on an independent, conservative reporter's face and attacking her during a Black Lives Matter rally in Madison Square Park last month, according to authorities and police sources.  Tara Anne Szczepanski, 33, was filming the rally around noon Jan. 10 when a group shoved her around, hit her on the head with an egg and knocked her cellphone to the ground with an umbrella, cops and the sources said.  The caught-on-video scuffle continued as Szczepanski ran from the group, cops said.  She was sprayed with silly string and whacked with a skateboard before someone rubbed a used baby diaper on her face, video shows.

BLM Mob Swarms D.C. Streets, Chants 'If We Don't Get It, Burn It Down'.  A mob of Black Lives Matter activists took to the streets of Washington, D.C. Saturday night [2/6/2021] to yell at police and harass outdoor diners while chanting insurrectionist slogans such as "if we don't get it, burn it down."  Like most similar incidents involving Black lives Matter, the corporate media took zero interest in covering the march and accompanying threats of violence.

CNN Hack Threatens Republicans on Live TV: 'Living On Borrowed Time'.  New York Times columnist Tom Friedman issued quite a threat to Republicans this week and CNN didn't do a thing about it.  During an interview Monday night on "Cuomo PrimeTime," Friedman told anchor Chris Cuomo that China was better than the United States because they had fast trains and didn't need to deal with Republicans.  After saying Republicans are "living on borrowed time," Friedman then arrogantly asked:  "But, you know what I've been thinking about, Chris, as I was listening to your show, the lead-in here.  I was thinking, like, what are they doing in China today?"  Friedman then praised China for having a bullet train while some Americans had chosen to elect freshman Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Michele Bachmann rips 'absolutely sick' media coverage on riots, reveals she was locked in Capitol for 5 hours.  Former GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann slammed vindictive Democrats and ripped into the mainstream media for the "absolutely sick" way the U.S. Capitol riot has been covered.  The former Republican lawmaker from Minnesota told guest host Mark Steyn on "Fox News Primetime" on Monday that the media has been on a mission to destroy the "legacy" of former President Donald Trump and his supporters and that Democrats are engaging in "bad political dinner theater" with their second attempt to impeach him.  Bachmann revealed that she was "locked-in" at the Capitol during the riot last month after spending time in prayer at the chapel on the grounds.

Newly Released Body-Cam Footage Shows ANTIFA Abusing, Spitting On And Assaulting Washington Police.  It has been a little over a week since BPD cleared the Civic Center Unauthorized Encampment in Downtown Bellingham which was met with violent Black Bloc Anarchists.  The homeless encampment had already been successfully cleared and the only people who remained at the camp were violent people who had answered a "Call to Action" ad on the internet, and that was also the reason The City decided to clear the encampment a day early.  [Video clip]

Owners of Minneapolis restaurant destroyed in riots file lawsuit against city, Mayor Frey.  The owners of a Minneapolis restaurant that was destroyed in the riots after George Floyd's death filed a lawsuit against the city and Mayor Jacob Frey.  In the lawsuit, filed in Hennepin County District Court on Monday, Kacey White and Charles Stotts, owners of Town Talk Diner & Gastropub, say the delay in response to the riots by the city and Frey allowed for more destruction and cost them their restaurant.  "Mayor Frey and the City's failure to control the significant (yet manageable) number of malefactors on Lake Street resulted in his failure to protect Town Talk," the lawsuit states, in part.  White and Stotts also state in the lawsuit that Frey and the city infringed on their property rights by "negotiating with and appeasing rioters," allowing the obstruction of public streets and "allowing pervasive vandalism and trespasses" on their property.  As a result, they say their restaurant was destroyed and they lost their business, building, revenue and future income.  The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $4.5 million.

Mob Threatens Arson During March In DC.  Anti-police, BLM activists marched through the streets of Washington DC Saturday night [1/6/2021], where they yelled at police and harassed outdoor diners while chanting various slogans such as "Black lives, they matter here," and "if we don't get it, burn it down."  [Video clips]  Participants shined flashlights in the windows of local businesses and residences.  Meanwhile, DC police did virtually nothing to control or stop the march as the group confronted locals.  [Video clip]  Members of Antifa were present, joining up with the organizing group, "They/Them Collective," which describes themselves as "An anarcho abolitionist collective house based in occupied Piscataway land here for queer, enby, trans, BBIPOC liberation."

Black Lives Matter, Antifa March Through DC, Chant 'Burn It Down'.  Black Lives Matter protesters and Antifa agitators marched through Washington on Feb. 6 and threatened people as they ate dinner, according to video footage and reports.  "Burn it down," the demonstrators chanted.  "We are here tonight because black lives matter," members of the far-left group also said.  "Despite black lives mattering, black people are still dying at the hands of the police paid for by our tax dollars."  Other video footage uploaded by independent journalists on the scene showed Antifa types fighting with police officers, who were trying to keep them away from restaurants.  Some, clad in all black, could be seen holding the red-and-black Antifa flag.  At one point, police in Washington were seen forming lines around outdoor diners to separate them from the demonstrators and agitators.

BLM/Antifa March Through D.C. Calling to 'Burn It Down' If They Don't Get What They Want.  Democrats finally paid attention to a riot on Jan. 6 after ignoring and/or justifying violent riots for months because they were being precipitated by radical leftists.  But the protests and riots they've variously ignored or embraced have continued on in various cities including in Washington, D.C.  There are thousands of National Guard in D.C. now allegedly to deal with amorphous "threats" that haven't even been defined for the governors who sent them there.  That's part of the reason some of them have pulled their units.  But you didn't see them Guard anywhere around when BLM and Antifa people marched through the city last night chanting to "burn it down" during one of their frequent FTP marches.

'Inconsistent, Conflicting' And Ignored Threat Assessments Ahead of Jan 6 Capitol Attack.  A New York Times report has let the cat out of the bag:  that law enforcement either knew and did nothing about the potential for violence on January 6th, or issued conflicting and inconsistent threat assessments ahead of the events at the U.S. Capitol.  The news will raise questions as to why authorities allowed a predominantly peaceful Trump speech and rally in Washington, D.C. to be infiltrated and overtaken by forces who had planned for violence in advance.  Questions will also be asked about why authorities immediately claimed President Donald Trump had "incited" the riot with his speech at the Ellipse outside the White House when we now know much of the violent behavior was pre-meditated.

List of 20 Individuals at the Capitol on January 6th — All Appear to be Connected to Antifa or Far Left Groups.  For weeks the FBI, Democrats, and the fake news media have insisted there was no Antifa or far-left activist infiltration of the January 6th protests where activists stormed the US Capitol.  We already know this is false.  The individuals who entered the US Capitol and caused damage on January 6th were not all Trump supporters.  Known members of Antifa were inside the Capitol and there was even an Antifa event called for that day at 11 AM nearby at the Washington Monument organized by John Sullivan that was closer to the US Capitol than the Ellipse where President Trump spoke to half a million supporters.

Josh Hawley's wife Erin files criminal complaint against activist who organized a protest at the couple's Virginia home.  The wife of Republican Sen. Josh Hawley has filed a criminal complaint against the organizer of a protest which took place outside the couple's Virginia home.  Erin Morrow Hawley filed the complaint in a Fairfax County court on Friday [2/5/2021], with the defendant identified as Patrick Young.  On January 4, Young — who describes himself on Twitter as an 'organizer, agitator and educator' — led a noisy demonstration outside Hawley's home, angered by the senator's plans to object to Electoral College counts confirming that Joe Biden won the Presidential election.

Trump Supporter and Mother of Two Fears for Her Life and Her Children's Safety After Kathy Griffin Doxxes Her Family.  A Virginia woman is facing death threats and investigation by the FBI after liberal comedian Kathy Griffin doxed the mother of two and her family on social media.  In a desperate bid for attention, Kathy Griffin reposted the picture of her holding a fake, severed head of President Trump for the third time on social media in January.  "Just resign now.  You lost.  It's over," Griffin gloated in a tweet alongside the famous photo of her holding the plastic, bloody head.  Daniel McCarty, a 43-year old former Democrat, shot back at Griffin for promoting violence against the president and her world has been turned upside down since.

Chuck Schumer Used Violent Rhetoric To Sic A Mob On Two Supreme Court Justices.  When Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., spoke against the constitutionality of the Democrats' impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, he reminded his colleagues that Democrat elected officials had recently told their followers to attack Republicans.  If Trump was to be impeached for asking followers to "peacefully and patriotically" make their voices heard by members of Congress on Jan. 6, what to do with Democrats' more incendiary rhetoric and actions, he wondered.  Sen. Kamala Harris solicited funds to bail out the rioters who destroyed Minneapolis during 2020's "Summer of Rage." Rep. Maxine Waters called on Democrats to seek out Republicans in public places and "create a crowd" and "push back" on them to let them know "they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."

When a Far-Left, Female-Led Domestic Terrorism Group Bombed the U.S. Capitol:  Forgotten in the wake of January 6.  In the furor over the January 6 riot, which Sen. Mitt Romney called an "insurrection incited by the president of the United States," a more serious assault on the Capitol has been overlooked.  For those who weren't around or may have forgotten, here's what went down on the evening of November 7, 1983.  "Listen carefully, I'm only going to tell you this one time," a caller from the "Armed Resistance Unit," told the operator at the Capitol switchboard.  "There is a bomb in the Capitol building.  It will go off in five minutes.  Evacuate the building."  A Senate document, "Bomb Explodes in Capitol," describes what happened.  The caller warned that "a bomb had been placed near the chamber in retaliation for recent U.S. military involvement in Grenada and Lebanon."  At 10:58 p.m. "a thunderous explosion tore through the second floor of the Capitol's north wing."  The device, hidden under a bench at the eastern end of the corridor outside the Senate chamber, "blew off the door to the office of Democratic Leader Robert C. Byrd.  The blast also punched a potentially lethal hole in a wall partition sending a shower of pulverized brick, plaster, and glass into the Republican cloakroom." The adjacent halls were virtually deserted, so "many lives had been spared."

Chris Salcedo Runs Montage of Democrats Threatening Violence Against Trump.  Democrats and their media are hoping to impeach private citizen Donald Trump next week for inciting a riot at the US Capitol on January 6th.  This will be quite a challenge for Democrats considering President Trump called for a peaceful protest and considering the violence was planned weeks in advance before President Trump's speech.  Then again Democrats will have one of their own senators presiding over the proceedings because the Supreme Court wants nothing to do with it.  On Monday night [2/1/2021] Chris Salcedo on Newsmax ran a montage of radical Democrat after radical Democrat promoting violence against President Trump and his supporters.

Antifa? Armed activists seize hotel in Olympia, declare it homeless sanctuary.  Did this stunt get conducted by Antifa, a local homeless-advocacy group, or both?  It's only certain that it resulted in a spectacular backfire.  No matter who gets credit or blame for this attempt to seize property for the proletariat, the result was 33 people getting kicked to the curb and at least a dozen arrests.  But hey, at least they did something.  I'm sure the homeless people who lost their rooms at the Red Lion in Olympia, Washington are duly impressed:  [Video clip]  It took seven hours to clear the occupiers from the hotel, after police got warrants to enter and conduct searches.  It's not quite certain why they would have needed a warrant, since the hotel itself called police to deal with the situation.

Slowing Killing The American Frog.  Under ordinary circumstances, rioting and destruction would be quelled.  But strategically placed mayors and DA's, elected with money from disruptors such as George Soros, ensured that would not happen, as did media complicity.  We saw news people standing in front of burning cityscapes, saying the riots were "mostly peaceful."  By not stopping the riots, we conceded that mayhem was the new normal.  By letting the rioters free afterward, without charges, good people lost hope.  Why do you know the names of the right-of-center people caught up in the riots, but not one name of the anarchists?  All but one have remained anonymous.  They've never been charged, including after the January 6th 'insurgency.' Does anyone know the name of any of the people who were chasing Kyle Rittenhouse?  Do you know who shot Ashli Babbit?  Do we have any idea who led the charge into the Capitol building?  Was the January 6th 'insurgency' pre-planned by the left to achieve exactly the purpose it served?  Were the actual insurgents far-left operatives who simply knew that, in a crowd that big, they would find some hotheads among the group to follow their lead, especially if they were dressed in the American flag, not Antifa gear?

12 arrested in Olympia after occupying Red Lion hotel near state Capitol.  Seven individuals arrested Sunday night in Olympia for forcibly occupying the Red Lion hotel near the state Capitol are appearing before a judge Monday [2/1/2021].  The individuals are facing various charges including burglary and assault, according to court documents from the Thurston County Prosecutor's Office.  The individuals are part of a homeless activist group known as Oly Housing Now, according to a city press release Sunday.  A woman, who has been identified as the leader of the occupation, had rented 20 rooms at the Red Lion the previous night and said it was for a wedding party, court documents said.  However, throughout the day Sunday, hotel staff noticed 20-30 people were inside the building who were dressed in all black and some were armed with batons and knives, court documents said.

A Tsunami of Hate.  [Scroll down]  How virulent is the anti-white and anti-American racism of the Democrat Party?  Consider this unhinged but also unchallenged statement by Vice President Kamala Harris defending the Black Lives Matters rioters whose "protests" caused billions in property damage, led to 25 deaths and injured 2000 police officers in the summer of 2020:  "The reality is that the life of a black person in America has never been treated as fully human... It's no wonder people are taking to the streets [to protest].  And I support them."

Be a tribe of one.  Suppose you're a die-hard Democrat.  What do you do about such issues as: [...] Urban violence versus urban order.  Do you side with radical groups like Antifa and the more extreme elements of Black Lives Matter — overwhelmingly Democrats — who candidly espouse attention-seeking violence for their causes?  Or do you side with the urban residents and businesses — also overwhelmingly Democrat — who suffer the results of that violence?  The same issue presents with regard to urban vagrancy, er, homelessness, er, persons experiencing homelessness.  Do you side with feral humans who seek attention by camping on the downtown sidewalks and pooping in the gutters and their enabling advocates who are overwhelmingly Democrats?  Or do you side with the urban residents and businesses — overwhelmingly Democrats — who are trying to live and work a few feet away from those make-shift toilets?

Are facial recognition programs being used against Trump supporters?  In 2020, the violence inherent in leftism exploded with the Black Lives Matter movement, especially when it became entwined with Antifa.  In Democrat-run cities across America, while many people did indeed march peacefully, thousands of them also rioted, looted, burned, assaulted, and murdered, along with destroying public art and statuary.  Minneapolis alone suffered a half-billion dollars in damage and large swaths of Kenosha were burned to the ground.  In Portland, Antifa is still engaged in nightly violent raids against businesses, government buildings, and law enforcement officers.  Just about the only physical opposition to the violence on the ground came from a group called the Proud Boys — which the left instantly characterized as a white supremacist group.  They did so even though the Proud Boys' leader, Enrique Tarrio, is black.  We also just learned that Tarrio is an FBI informant.  That tie to the FBI does leave a person wondering if the FBI infiltrated the Proud Boys in other ways, including sending in provocateurs to try to make the organization appear violent and racist.

Protesters and police clash over Bellingham homeless encampment.  Four people were arrested and three police officers injured during a clash between homeless advocates and law enforcement outside Bellingham City Hall Thursday [1/28/2021].  A large homeless camp has been growing since November outside City Hall.  City officials call it an "occupation."  Bellingham Police Chief Flo Simon said some of the protesters were members of antifa and other groups out to confront law enforcement.

So much for incitement by Trump.
FBI investigators:  Suspect planted pipe bombs night before capitol riot.  The would-be pipe bomber of the Democratic and Republican National Committees' headquarters planted the devices at the Washington, DC, buildings the night before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the FBI said Friday [1/29/2021].  In a wanted flyer, the FBI said it obtained new information about the bomber, writing that the agency now believes the would-be terrorist planted the bombs between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Jan. 5.  The bombs were found the following day before they detonated, but law enforcement authorities have said they believe the bombs were viable — and could have exploded at the downtown buildings.  A reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the bomber has increased to $100,000, the FBI's flyer states.

Portland protesters burn dumpster, hurl rocks at feds.  A throng of violent protesters set a dumpster alight and hurled rocks at federal agents outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Ore. according to police and video of the chaotic scene.  Footage of the unrest shows a dumpster ablaze outside a boarded-up ICE building, where a team of Federal Protective Service agents in riot gear responded at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday [1/27/2021] after it was pushed in front of the building, police said.  Federal officers responded with tear gas and pepper-ball rounds as police advanced on the demonstrators, the footage shows.  At one point, a large explosion occurs near the dumpster, apparently caused by fireworks.  Portland cops responded to the scene a short time later along with firefighters to extinguish the burning dumpster, police spokeswoman Officer Melissa Newhard said.

US Capitol police 'betrayed' by leadership in siege:  Union.  US Capitol police officers were "betrayed" by their bosses, who left rank-and-file cops poorly equipped to handle the storming of the Capitol building — and weren't told the violence was expected, the department's union chief said Wednesday [1/27/2021].  Nearly 140 cops were either physically injured or emotionally traumatized in the Jan. 6 assault, US Capitol Police Labor Committee Chairman Gus Papathanasiou said.  "I have officers who were not issued helmets prior to the attack who have sustained brain injuries," he said in a statement, according to a report in The Hill.  "One officer has two cracked ribs and two smashed spinal discs," he said.  "One officer is going to lose his eye, and another was stabbed with a metal fence stake."

Violence against the police is a feature of every Antifa/BLM riot, and it has been a part of exactly zero Trump rallies.

Pro-Abortion Group Storms Catholic Church in Ohio, Knocks Over Table, Shouts Profanities.  A far-left pro-abortion group disrupted a church service at St. Joseph's Catholic Cathedral in Columbus, Ohio Friday on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.  The group of Marxists barged into the church, knocked over a table and shouted profanities.  "Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!" the protesters shouted.  "Roe is the floor, we demand more!"  Security quickly rushed in and tossed out the screaming protesters.

The Editor says...
"Roe is on the floor."  That's catchy, but what does it mean?

Antifa rioters smash up Tacoma in rampage over cop driving through crowd.  Antifa rioters descended on Tacoma, Washington, starting fires and trashing buildings in outrage over viral video of a police officer driving his squad car through a crowd of illegal street racers.  Videos showed numerous fires and businesses smashed up late Sunday as at least 200 people took to the streets close to where the officer had sped through a crowd the previous night, running over at least one person.  At least two police cars were damaged during the rampage as some city buildings had to be evacuated, according to the News Tribune.  A cheering mob — dressed in all black and at one point seen toting an Antifacist Action flag — was also caught on video trying to pull away the gates protecting the Pierce County Jail, chanting, "Free them all."  Tacoma police said they also busted two people trying to get onto the roof of an unspecified secure building — saying they were armed with a handgun, double-bladed knives and batons.

Portland Antifa mob moves to Tacoma in response to cop running over man at Fast and Furious-style burnout on Saturday.  More than 200 Antifa protesters reportedly descended on Tacoma, Washington, where they busted the windows of buildings and set fires in the streets on Sunday, just a day after wreaking havoc in Portland.  Video footage and images showed broken glass scattered on the sidewalk outside of businesses and graffiti sprayed on the side of buildings.  Protesters started at least two fires in the area using a barricade for one and an American flag for the other.  Dozens of Tacoma police officers were seen lined up on bikes as protesters approached them.

Man charged in DC riot reportedly has brother in Secret Service who led Michelle Obama detail.  A New Jersey gym owner and former ultimate fighter who is accused of assaulting a federal officer during the US Capitol riots is the brother of a Secret Service agent who led former first lady Michelle Obama's security detail, according to a report.  Scott Kevin Fairlamb of Stockholm, NJ, who fought under the name "Wildman," was charged Friday in federal court in Washington, DC, according to court documents.  Now it has been revealed he is the brother of Preston "Jay" Fairlamb III and the son of retired New Jersey State Trooper Preston "Jay" Fairlamb Jr., who was killed in a 2012 motorcycle accident, the Huffington Post reported.  When Obama was first lady, she attended a memorial service for the elder Fairlamb, according to the news outlet, because of her relationship with Preston "Jay" Fairlamb III.

Antifa Terrorists Knock Out a Street Preacher with a Sucker Punch, then Rob him.  CNNs Headline will probably say the street preacher was a right wing nazi preaching hate speech and deserved it.  [Video clip]

FBI Agents Arrest 'Walkaway' Founder Brandon Straka.  FBI agents arrested 'Walkaway' founder Brandon Straka on Monday [1/25/2021] for his 'actions' at the US Capitol on January 6.  The 'WalkAway' campaign began on Facebook in the summer of 2018 after Straka, a handsome, gay hairdresser from New York posted a video explaining why he was walking away from the Democrat party.  The Walkaway movement attracted tens of thousands of people, making Straka a target of the Marxist left.  Straka, 44, was taken into custody on Monday [1/25/2021] by agents from the FBI Omaha Field Office and faces charges of impeding a law enforcement officer during civil disorder, knowingly entering and remaining on restricted grounds without lawful authority and/or engaging in disorderly conduct within proximity to a restricted building to impede official functions and engaging in disorderly conduct with intent to disturb a hearing before Congress.

I presume the people who disrupted the Kavanaugh hearings got the same treatment.

A Gaggle Of Pro Baby Killers Interrupt Mass In Columbus, Demand Defunding Cops To Pay For Abortion On Demand.  About eight pro-abortion protesters disrupted the Respect Life Mass at St. Joseph's Cathedral in downtown Columbus Friday, where Bishop Robert Brennan was presiding at an event marking the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.  "Two, four, six, eight, this church teaches hate," the protesters shouted, saying that abortion rights were under attack.  "Fund abortion, not cops," said one of their signs.  "Abortion on Demand.  End Hyde Now," said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion.  At least two protesters wore vests that read "clinic escort" on the back.  [Video clip]

Did Capitol rioters receive inside help?  While there is yet much to learn about what happened at the Capitol on January 6, some important facts are known beyond a reasonable doubt:
  [#1]   Most protesters who entered the Capitol encountered no resistance, and some were directed by police on where to go.
  [#2]   Some protesters who led the storming of the Capitol were leftist agitators.
  [#3]   The riot was planned, and foreknowledge of this event was reported to the FBI, the Capitol police, the NYPD, and even the Joint Terrorism Taskforce.
This raises the following questions:
  [#1]   If the police allowed protesters into the Capitol because they were overwhelmed, why did reinforcements fail to arrive? [...]
  [#2]   Why did CNN broadcast the account of John Sullivan?  Did they already know he was a BLM agitator who encouraged protesters to "burn down" the Capitol?
  [#3]   It is almost certain that Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell knew about plans to storm the Capitol because failure to notify them would have been an egregious failure of intelligence.

More Video Evidence Shows the 'Riots' At the US Capitol Were Infiltrated by Antifa and Other Radicals.  Antifa and others inserted themselves into the Capitol protests and framed Trump supporters.  There is now ample evidence to support this.  Antifa-BLM leader John Sullivan organized an Antifa protest at the Washington Memorial not far from the US Capitol on January 6th.  This was right before the violence at the US Capitol.  For some reason, the mainstream media refuses to report on this Antifa protest?  John Sullivan was later arrested for rioting inside the US Capitol.  No one has yet asked what happened to his cronies?  There is also video of Antifa handing out weapons from a bag during the Capitol Hill riots.  The media has also ignored this.

Anti-Trump Leader of Group Who Marched With BLM, Claims Group Helped Storm the Capitol.  I've written about the involvement of folks in addition to Trump supporters in the actions that occurred January 6 at the United States Capitol.  We've heard a lot about John Sullivan, the left wing activist who had been involved in organizing BLM protests in Utah and was heard at a D.C. protest in August calling for President Donald Trump to be ripped out the White House.  He was right at the door to the House chamber when Ashli Babbitt was shot and filmed the incident.  He was later arrested and police alleged he was involved in inciting action that day that could be heard on video.

Protestors break into Bellingham City Hall, mayor rushed out for safety.  Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday [1/22/2021], forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety.  Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6.  "It was unsettling," Fleetwood said.  "They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave," he said. [...] Video from inside City Hall also shows protestors ripped down an American flag outside the building, and people stomping on the flag before a man dragged the flag away.  Protestors said online they were there to advocate for the homeless who are staying at a large encampment of about 100 tents outside City Hall.

The Editor says...
People storming the City Hall to advocate for the homeless (camped outside), and tearing down a U.S. flag, sound like far-left rioters.  The only "parallel" to the January 6 disturbance at the U.S. Capitol is that far-left agitators were exerting most of the violence there, too.

Destructive protests by anarchists and extremists signal divided left as Biden administration begins.  The hundreds of far-left and anarchist demonstrators who gathered in protest mere hours after President Biden swore the oath of office Wednesday signal a fracturing on the left that could become a scourge for the new administration, political leaders and experts say.  Some activists are carrying their destructive tactics into a new administration to voice rejection of centrist ideologies they believe will do little to address existential worries over climate change, economic inequality, foreign wars and racism.  The vandalizing of the Oregon Democratic Party headquarters by extreme-left demonstrators on Inauguration Day has split Portland liberals, and federal agents' launching of tear gas at crowds that descended on the city's Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters produced scenes reminiscent of similar summer standoffs ordered by President Donald Trump.

Rand Paul:  Are They Going to Impeach Bernie Sanders for Inciting the Guy Who Shot Steve Scalise?  Friday [1/22/2021] on FNC's "Hannity," Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) questioned the validity of the impeachment process underway against President Donald Trump now that he has left office.  Paul argued there were other instances of where the standard of incitement could be used against sitting members of Congress, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and questioned if Chief Justice John Roberts would show up to preside over the U.S. Senate's impeachment trial.  He also urged people to contact Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the leader of the Republican caucus in the U.S. Senate, and voice their opposition to impeachment proceedings.

Violent anti-ICE protests continue in Portland after Biden inauguration.  Protests outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland turned ugly on Saturday night as federal authorities threatened mass arrests for trespassing.  Dramatic videos posted on Twitter showed the crowd chanting: 'No borders!  No nations!  Abolish deportations!'  Officers with the Federal Protective Service, a branch within the Department of Homeland Security, declared an unlawful assembly at about 10pm and ordered protesters to disperse.

Progressives aim to sink America.  [Scroll down]  Progressive tactics also have frequently included deliberate breaches of the rule of law, including violent demonstrations, property damage, car bombings, felonious assault, and elections cheating.  Committing such violence, as we saw over the last two years, is considered acceptable if it advanced progressive goals.  That's why several thousand riots and violent demonstrations were permitted in our nation's cities, with very few perpetrators facing justice.

FBI launches investigation after bomb is thrown at anti-LGBT church in California.  The FBI has launched an investigation after a bomb was thrown at an anti-LGBT church in California just weeks after the pastor received an arson attack threat.  Police and fire crews were called to the First Works Baptist Church at 2600 Tyler Avenue in El Monte in the early hours of Saturday morning to reports of an explosion.  The FBI said an improvised explosive device had been thrown at the building and it had also been covered in graffiti.  No one was injured in the attack, authorities said.  The church has been the center of controversy in the local area due to its stance against same-sex relationships and its teachings that residents have described as hate speech.

Now That Democrats Are In Power, Twitter Will Suspend Antifa.  What's the difference between Big Tech and the Democrat Party?  Same as the difference between the media and the Democrats.  If anyone needed evidence of the obvious beyond the money trail, the past three months provided evidence not only that Big Tech companies will suppress President Trump and conservatives, but that they will crackdown on leftists only when they inconvenience Democrats.  Big Tech cracks down on conservatives under the guise that they're misbehaving, but the selective crackdown on lefties can't be justified in any such way.  Why did Twitter wait until Biden was in power to finally crack down on Antifa social media accounts after another set of riots targeted Democrats?

Biden won't stop them, and neither will cops, until Portland is burned down.  The nation's capital was hard to recognize on Inauguration Day this year.  In response to the Capitol Hill siege on Jan. 6, thousands of police and National Guard troops were sent on the streets of Washington, DC, where they manned checkpoints and set up barriers.  The predicted right-wing violence by Trump supporters never materialized.  Joe Biden's inauguration went off without a hitch.  But in the Pacific Northwest, Antifa had other plans.  In Portland, Black Lives Matter-Antifa made good on their pre-announced "J20" (January 20) riot.  Around 150 Antifa dressed in black shut down traffic as they marched unimpeded to the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Oregon.

Group causes damage, continues march in downtown Seattle.  A group of people marching in Seattle Wednesday night vandalized buildings and caused property damage downtown.  Seattle police have made at least three arrests — two for property damage and another for assault.  Seattle police tweeted photos of the damage and said multiple sites were vandalized, including the William Kenzo Nakamura Courthouse at 6th Avenue and Spring Street.

Antifa militants smash up original Starbucks during anti-Biden protest.  They really don't want Joe.  Antifa militants chanted [against] President Biden during a rampage through Seattle after the inauguration — and smashed up the historic site of the very first Starbucks.  Seattle cops made at least three arrests as at least 100 protesters scrawled graffiti, smashed windows and even set fire to an American flag, according to the Seattle Times.  Videos showed the mob chanting their allegiance to "Antifa" and repeatedly decrying the election of a left-wing president, Biden.

Protesters smash windows at Democratic Party HQ in Northeast.  Crowds of people across Portland turned violent on Inauguration Day, smashing windows at the Democratic Party of Oregon and later targeting the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement facility where federal officers declared an unlawful assembly.  A crowd of around 150 people gathered at Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland around 2 p.m.  Less than an hour later, a few officers on bicycles rode into the parking lot and were quickly surrounded by dozens of people, Portland Police said.  The group took one officer's bicycle.  More officers arrived and they got the bicycle back but the crowd wouldn't let the officers leave.  Police said reinforcements came and they seized some long poles and a large knife from people in the crowd before setting off a smoke canister to escape.

Antifa Vandalizes Democratic Party Office in Portland.  Antifa thugs vandalized a Democratic Party of Oregon's office in Portland on Wednesday.  Townhall's Julio Rosas was on the ground and captured the chaos.  Members of the far-left group can be seen spray painting obscene political messages [...] on the outside of the building before other members shatter the office's windows. [...] During the first presidential debate, Joe Biden claimed "Antifa is an idea, not an organization."  Maybe the Democrats can sue the idea of Antifa for damages.

Biden Administration Tear Gassed 'Peaceful Protesters' Just Hours After Inauguration.  A Democratic Party headquarters was damaged, an American flag burned, and marchers filled the streets in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, following Biden's inauguration.  Antifa was reportedly behind the activity, known during the summer as "peaceful protests."  The New York Times reported that "federal agents in camouflage — now working under the Biden administration — blanketed streets with tear gas and unleashed volleys of welt-inducing pepper balls as they confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown."

Antifa rioters smash windows at Oregon's Democratic Party headquarters in Portland, burn American flags in Denver and vandalize stores in Seattle.  Antifa rioters smashed windows at Portland's Democratic Party headquarters, burned US flags in Denver and vandalized store fronts in Seattle just hours after President Joe Biden was sworn in.  While some right-wing extremist groups had vowed to disrupt Biden's inauguration following the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, only scattered protests and violence emerged on Wednesday [1/20/2021].  Federal police were forced to deploy tear gas in an attempt to disperse protesters who threw rocks and eggs at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Oregon, late on Wednesday night.

Video Shows Known Antifa Members Changing into MAGA Clothing Outside of the Capitol Just before the Attack.  As if you needed any more evidence that the attack on the Capitol was all staged by radical leftists attempting to make Trump supporters look bad.  Here it is!  Watch as known Antifa members change their clothing to look like MAGA supporters just prior to the attack on the Capitol building.  For those who don't know, the violence by Antifa actually started as President Trump was still giving his speech.  This is why the media was quick to remove all of the videos showing the violence until the Antifa clowns were dressed in the right attire.  [Video clip]

Biden administration will face its own Frankenstein's monster.  Demonstrations and riots will not stop with the Biden/Harris administration.  They present a real danger to government as we now know it.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are being sworn in today, 20 January.  It has been obvious for some time that this would take place.  On January 18 a protest in NYC resulted in 29 people being arrested and eleven police officers being injured.  Other protests broke out on January 19.  The election of Biden/Harris does not appear to have diminished the desire to demonstrate.

Now, the Left Owns It All.  That mob that split off from the Donald Trump rally of Jan. 6 to invade the Capitol has proven a godsend to the left.  The death of a Capitol cop has enabled the left — which spent the summer after George Floyd's death trashing "racist cops" and shouting, "Defund the Police!" — to posture as fighting allies of the men in blue.  Liberals who implored us to understand the grievances of the rioters, looters and arsonists last summer have become sudden converts to the church of law and order.  Elites who had condoned the smashing of statues and monuments to Columbus, Washington, Jefferson and Jackson as a needed cleansing of our hateful history have declared themselves sickened that Trumpists would desecrate the temple of democracy.  Had it been antifa or BLM that carried out the invasion, not one statue would have been left standing in Statuary Hall, and we would have been instructed that it was slaves who had, after all, built the Capitol building.

The Editor says...
If the January 6 event was so beneficial to the left, one must immediately wonder if it was orchestrated by the left.

On the other hand...
Oath Keepers Face First Conspiracy Charges Over Capitol Riot.  Three members of the far-right group Oath Keepers are facing the first conspiracy charges to arise from the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, with prosecutors alleging they plotted to disrupt the electoral vote confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden.  Thomas Edward Caldwell, Jessica Marie Watkins and Donovan Ray Crowl were charged Tuesday [1/19/2021] by federal prosecutors in Washington with conspiracy as well as obstruction of official proceedings and destruction of government property, among other charges.  Caldwell, 65, served as a leader in "planning and coordinating" the breach of the Capitol, the government claims.  The riot by supporters of President Donald Trump left five people dead and sent lawmakers fleeing for safety.

The Editor says...
[#1]  From where I'm sitting, it appears that most of the people rioting were not Trump supporters.  [#2] The riot "left five people dead," yes, but one of the dead was shot by police for no justifiable reason, one guy had a heart attack in the crowd, one woman was trampled, one was a cop who had a stroke after being pepper-sprayed and hit in the head (which doesn't sound like the actions of a Trump supporter), and the other person died from an unspecified "medical emergency."

"Mostly Peaceful" - Detaching Violence From BLM, Attaching It To Election Protests.  [Scroll down]  With the D.C. protest, in which a large number of people lawfully protested over the stolen election, the Capitol March, involving a smaller group, only a minority of whom clashed with police, and a much smaller minority of whom actually entered the building unlawfully, as opposed to being allowed in, the Democrats and their media used the opposite tactic, conflating everything.  Rally participants were accused of all being in on it.  Speakers are being investigated for "incitement", a European speech doctrine that has no place in America.  Peaceful protests are treated as criminal because of criminal behavior by a tiny minority who were there at the time.  Meanwhile violent protests are treated as peaceful even when the violence comes from the top.  The Black Lives Matter leadership never condemned the riots and the violence.  Instead they repeatedly excused it.

Film Crew Releases Never Before Seen Footage of 2017 Inauguration Riots.  The footage was gathered as part of an ongoing documentary about the fight for dominance playing out between establishment and independent news organizations.  The shocking footage exposes a coordinated attack on the 2017 inauguration of President Donald Trump.  Highlights include anarchists preparing for violent clashes with police (10:22), violent attacks on attendees (2:08), destruction of property (9:50), and the physical premeditated blockades that succeed in preventing voters from attending the Presidential Inauguration (3:29).  [Video clip]

Staten Island man arrested for his role in Capitol riot.  A Staten Island man who allegedly livestreamed his participation in the Capitol riot was arrested Monday, according to reports and the FBI.  Nicolas Moncada of Taunton Street was arrested at his home, with federal agents remaining at the scene.  "[Moncada] is now in custody for his role in assaulting the US Capitol while our representatives were inside performing their Constitutional duties," the agency said on Twitter.  The feds were able to track down Moncada because he livestreamed the Jan. 6 assault on the US Capitol building on Instagram, a law enforcement source told The [New York] Post.  He is due to appear in Brooklyn federal court on Tuesday [1/19/2021], the source said.

Maher Destroys Fellow Liberals:  Don't Link Rioting Thugs to 74 Million Voters.  Every now and then, Bill Maher shocks his fellow liberals with some common sense.  Friday night was one of those days as the HBO host closed Real Time with a commentary lecturing them to not equate the violent thugs who stormed the Capitol with 74 million Americans who may have voted for Donald Trump because of policy.  He also eviscerated left-wing California as a red tape-filled bureaucratic mess.  Maher, who has been very tough on Islamic extremism, got this zing in at the left:  "As bad as last week was... let's not confuse 5,000 people with 74 million.  Yes, even supporting the insurrection in spirit is, well, deplorable, but there's a difference between holding illiberal beliefs and acting violently on them — at least that's what they always told me about Islamic terrorism."

That sounds like a very smooth way to equate Republicans with Islamic terrorists.

Is Antifa advertising for rioters for Jan. 20?  Independent journalist Andy Ngo posted an appalling group of rioter recruiting posters, purportedly from Antifa. [...] The posters depict sinister ski-masked creatures in shadow dancing around a bonfire circle while a little old Monopoly man figure is beaten and bruised and tied to the stake.  They depict a burning police car, and multiple soup cans hurled at a state capitol, some bearing hammers and sickle.  It's ironic, as it comes at a time when the press is all riled up about purportedly dangerous Trump supporters who are supposedly sure to try to shut the Biden inaugural down.

Meet John Sullivan, the Left-Wing 'Agitator' Arrested and Charged in the Capitol Riot.  Now that the fog of war is settling over Washington, D.C., details are emerging from the attack on the Capitol that were not reported correctly in the immediate aftermath — as they rarely are.  While news reports were denying that any counter-protesters were involved in the violence at the Capitol, an arrest has been made that shows at least one left-wing activist who actively participated in BLM was involved in leading and encouraging destructive behavior on January 6th.  John Sullivan was arrested and charged in federal court in the District of Columbia with civil disorder, being in a restricted area, and disorderly conduct.  Claiming to have been there only to document the event as a "journalist," Sullivan told police he was just an observer.  There is no record of John Sullivan working for any news outlet.  Video taken from Sullivan's phone shows much more than documenting events.

Left-Wing Terrorists Bombed The Senate In 1983.  Bill Clinton Let Them Out Of Prison Early — At Jerry Nadler's Request.  On his final day in office, Jan. 20, 2001, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of a pair of radical leftists serving time for bombing the U.S. Capitol building, where a 1983 blast shattered the second floor of the Senate wing.  Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg each served 16 years of lengthy sentences, with Rosenberg escaping 42 years of a 58-year sentence and Evans cutting short a 40-year sentence by 24 years.  The FBI landed formal indictments on Evans and Rosenberg in the 1988 "Resistance Conspiracy" case for their involvement in the bombing of the Capitol along with five others.  Evans and Rosenberg had already been in police custody for other crimes of the radical left-wing terror group May 19th Communist Organization (M19), named for the birthdays of Malcolm X and Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh.  According to a historical chronology of the left-wing group by the Smithsonian Magazine, M19 also carried out successful bombings of an FBI office, the Israel Aircraft Industries building, the South African consulate in New York, and D.C.'s Fort McNair and Navy Yard. [...] According to the New York Post in 2001, New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, who today serves as the House Judiciary Committee chairman, played a "crucial role" in Clinton's decision to commute Rosenberg's sentence.

Double Standard:  Amazon Is Still Selling 'Kill All Republicans' T-Shirts After Banning Parler For 'Violence'.  Even as Amazon took away Parler's right to exist by kicking the platform off Amazon Web Services (after AWS has become a near-monopoly in providing Internet access) after accusing Parler executives of allowing users to 'incite' the Capitol Building violence and rioting earlier this month, the gargantuan hypocritical gatekeepers of expression and speech appear to have no problem hosting a vendor who sells a t-shirt calling for the elimination of Republicans.

Protesters Turned Violent in Martin Luther King's Last March, Too.  So long ago — before the national holiday we observe today, before the monument in his honor was installed near the National Mall — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said he was getting too much of the credit for the civil rights movement.  He had a point.  In their dedication and bravery, Ralph Abernathy, Bayard Rustin, John Lewis, and other giants of that era arguably were everything he was, minus the smooth eloquence. [...] As happened in the Capitol riot that coincided with Trump's final rally on January 6, outside agitators reportedly played a role in the sabotage of King's final demonstration.  The violent criminality in Memphis was at first attributed to the Invaders, a group of young activists.  But was there more to the story?

Federal Judge Releases BLM Capitol Rioter Without Bail.  John Earle Sullivan, a far-left agitator who was present at the Capitol riots on Jan. 6 and recorded a woman's death at the hands of police, was released from jail on Friday [1/15/2021] without bail, according to Fox News.  According to Utah District Magistrate Judge Daphne Oberg, the motion for Sullivan's detention was denied because it didn't meet the court's threshold for a hearing.  Prosecutors had asked for Sullivan to be retained in jail at least until inauguration day.  Democrats including President-elect Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer have called the rioters "domestic terrorists" engaged in "sedition," crimes that can carry the death penalty.  Based on these claims, the U.S. capitol has been infused with some 20,000 U.S. troops in advance of Biden's inauguration Tuesday.  Federal judges have denied bail to others who took part in the Jan. 6 chaos.  Not Oberg.

D.C. AG Racine:  Trump, Rally Speakers Are 'Being Reviewed' for Inciting Violence Charges.  District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine said Sunday [1/17/2021] on MSNBC's "Velshi" that he was looking at charging President Donald Trump and others who spoke at the rally proceeding the deadly riots at Capital Hill on "inciting violence" charges.  Anchor Ali Velshi said, "You are considering bringing charges, that's what the reporting is, against people for inciting this riot."  Racine replied, "The reporting is accurate.  The office of attorney general has jurisdiction over a number of potential offenses, including weapons, ammunition, curfew violations, and the one that's gotten the most attention, of course, is the inciting violence charge.  We've brought that charge before.  It is law in D.C. since 2011.  It makes illegal the statements of individuals that clearly encourage, cajole, and otherwise, you know, get people motivated to commit violence.  We'll balance the First Amendment rights of speakers versus this law and will be judicious with whether to charge and who to charge but every single person at that rally is being reviewed."

Did You Forget 1000s Of Violent Rioters Attacked the Trump Inauguration?  Thousands of violent rioters attacked the Trump inauguration and other cities around the country.  Huge amount of damage to cars and buildings, hundreds arrested, hundreds injured:  [Video clips]

GOP Leaders in D.C. Don't Represent 74 Million Trump Voters.  The media lie.  All the time.  They lied about former President Barack Obama's economy; they tried to make us believe the worst economy since the Great Depression was a great economy.  Then they lied about President Donald Trump's soaring economy.  They tried to make us believe the best economy in 50 years, maybe the best economy ever for middle-class Americans, was a bad economy.  They lied about the Black Lives Matter riots.  For months, we saw radical communists, Marxists and violent thugs riot, loot, burn, mug and murder while attacking police officers with bricks, pipes and Molotov cocktails.  They burned entire downtown business districts to the ground, such as those in Minneapolis and Kenosha, Wisconsin. [...] They killed over 30 people.  They caused over $2 billion in damage.  Yet liberal politicians and the liberal media ignored it all, or made believe it never happened, or made believe it was "peaceful," or encouraged it, or supported it.  In many cases, they did all of the above.

The Antifa thugs shame America.  Last November the ineffectual Mayor of the city, Ted Wheeler, was re-elected over an Antifa-backed candidate.  To say that he has lost control of his city is an understatement; the city authorities have allowed rioting for months, even resisting federal requests to assist law enforcement.  Wheeler was chased out of his own apartment block and earlier this month was assaulted in a restaurant.  None of the placation seems to have worked.  But this week the activists of Antifa returned to one of their favourite targets:  the journalist whose factual reporting seems to get under their skin so much.

US Federal Employees Conspiring To Sabotage The Trump Administration On A Leaked Zoom Call.  Back in 2019, it was a huge revelation that the president has to "hide" his phone calls from much of his own administration to reduce leaks.  This move might seem to indicate guilt — and is certainly being spun that way by Democrats and the media — but for the knowledge that the president isn't wrong to mistrust his own workforce.  Federal employees are anything but neutral administrators of the law.  Fully 95 percent of donations from those working for agencies went to Hillary Clinton in 2016.  And a web of civil service laws built over the past century effectively inures them to the consequences of defying the elected and appointed officials tasked by our political process with captaining the ship of state.

Ocasio-Cortez Blames Facebook CEO Zuckerberg For Capitol Chaos.  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former bartender whose ascendance to political stardom is a modern day retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale is accusing Facebook and CEO Mark Zuckerberg of being partially responsible for the chaos at the U.S. Capitol.  AOC who falsely claimed that she was nearly killed when the building where Americans are sold out on a daily basis was briefly occupied by pro-Trump protesters and Antifa provocateurs accused Zuckerberg of aiding and abetting what Dems are defining as domestic terrorism.  The narcissistic Twitter diva's stunning remarks came during a virtual town hall with constituents in her New York City congressional district.

In today's America, the wise person willfully suspends belief.  The violence in the capital was a setup.  Just as the Obama administration took extraordinary, and illegal measures to try to cripple or oust the incoming President, so too has the Deep State devised a plan to deface Trump's legacy while simultaneously reducing all his followers to the status of domestic terrorists.  It was brilliantly planned and executed, and altogether evil.  I would not have believed it possible four years ago, but after seeing the Russian collusion fiasco unravel with its illegal unmasking, spying, and politically motivated prosecutions, all orchestrated by the deep state and the opposition political party, and then to see all the actors that were caught red-handed walk away virtually unscathed, I can easily believe that political operatives with no scruples and nothing much else to do, could come up with this plan without any fear of being held responsible.  The Capitol scheme is already starting to unravel, with timelines not matching up and evidence of a preplanned attack coming to light.

Self-Avowed 'Hardcore Leftist' Arrested for Inciting Violence at Florida Capitol.  Federal agents arrested a self-admitted anarchist and "hardcore leftist" on Friday on suspicion of plotting to violently disrupt planned election-related protests at the Florida state Capitol.  Prosecutors said they "averted a crisis" at the Capitol by arresting 33-year-old Daniel Baker, taking him into custody on a charge involving making a threat to kidnap or injure, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Florida announced in a news release.  "Baker issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protestors gathered at the Florida Capitol this Sunday," prosecutors said.  "He specifically called for others to join him in encircling any protestors and confining them at the Capitol complex using firearms."

Buffalo Guy from the Capitol riots is exactly 427% crazier than we thought.  So I guess it wasn't just a crazy outfit.  Buffalo Guy from the Capitol riots is packing a whole worldview to match.  [Video clip]

Photojournalist for CNN-NPR Jade Sacker embedded with BLM/Antifa leader John Sullivan during siege on US Capitol while cheering "We Did It!" after inciting riot.  As soon as the siege on the Capitol took place every left winger I know was screaming about how bad boy Trump and all his riff raff followers had ruined yet another glorious day.  There was violence, there was chaos, people died, and according to them, it was all Trump's fault for "calling for violence."  Except he didn't.  Politicians and special interests groups have been marching on the Capitol for as long as I can remember and that's exactly what Trump asked everyone to do.  I listened to that speech at least a half dozen times and not once did I hear Trump even insinuate that the crowd should perpetrator what later ensued.  I didn't hear anything from him that I haven't heard dozens of times from a magnitude of speakers over various causes from that very spot.

Was the US Capitol attack planned with inside help?  Attackers in organised columns, a woman shouting instructions on a megaphone, and suspicious tours the day before:  Investigators are probing the possibility that the Jan 6 attack on the US Capitol was planned, with help from insiders.  Disturbing videos, photos and online communications point to potential conspiracy.  In one video, more than a dozen men wearing assault force-type garb push up the Capitol steps in a line, cutting through the dense crowd towards the building's doors.  In another, a woman in a pink hat gives directions via megaphone to others inside the building, telling them where to go.

Group caught on video planning riot at Capitol.  I'm going to start by saying that I don't know if this group is Antifa and I don't think that's been verified, despite what people are conjecturing online.  Even so, it does show a group planning and coordinating the riot at the Capitol:  [Video clip]

CNN Was In On It!  Reporter Disguised Herself As Trump Supporter And Plotted With BLM Member.  On Thursday night [1/14/2021], [...] new footage showed CNN's Jade Sacker inside of the Capitol with John Sullivan, the BLM member who was charged by federal prosecutors for inciting chaos on January 6th.  Sacker co-conspired with the liberal activist in order to cause chaos and make Trump supporters look bad.  The shocking video shows her and Sullivan celebrating and shouting "We did it!" when they got the footage they were looking for.  When she asked Sullivan if he was filming, he said was going to delete it.  He never did.

Roger Stone's Wife Hospitalized After Being Attacked By Leftist Goon While Walking Her Dog.  Roger Stone's wife was attacked by a leftist goon while walking her dog in her neighborhood on Thursday [1/14/2021].  Nydia Stone was attacked so viciously that she was hospitalized and will require surgery.  "Roger Stone's handicapped wife beaten badly by deranged leftist man while walking her dog in her own neighborhood, currently in hospital," the Proud Boys posted on Telegram, according to a report from Big League Politics.

Left-Wing 'Known Agitator' Charged For Alleged Role In Capitol Breach.  A left-wing "known agitator" from Utah was charged Thursday for his alleged participation in the breach of the U.S. Capitol last week.  John Earle Sullivan has been charged with entering a restricted building or grounds, "civil disorders," and violent entry or disorderly conduct, reported to KUTV 2 News.  The Daily Caller News Foundation's Chuck Ross noted that Sullivan appeared on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" following the breach, claiming he witnessed the fatal shooting of protester Ashli Babbitt by a Capitol Police officer.  He also appeared alongside MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Ross noted.  "Left wing activist John Sullivan charged in Capitol riots.  He was filming as Ashli [Babbitt] was shot in the Capitol.  Was interviewed by Chris Hayes and Anderson Cooper," Ross posted to Twitter on Thursday evening.

Matt Gaetz Goes Nuclear On the House Floor and Dems Lose It as He Calls Out Their Hypocrisy for Months of Riots.  Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz didn't hold back and put up a very large, figurative mirror in front of the Democrats in the House on Wednesday and made it clear that while the riot at the Capitol was wrong, the Democrats were literally cheering on months of destruction and violence during the Black Lives Matter riots.  And the Democrats really didn't like hearing about it.

I Saw Provocateurs at the Capitol Riot On Jan. 6.  Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol what appeared to be four separate cells or units:
  [#1]   Plainclothes militants.  Militant, aggressive men in Donald Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
  [#2]   Agents-provocateurs.  Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
  [#3]   Fake Trump protesters.  A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
  [#4]   Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers.  A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.
All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor.  However, they did not all appear at the same time.  Not until the very end did it appear there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force.

Democrats Have Called for Violence for the Last 4 Years Against Trump and His Supporters.  If you needed any proof that the lying liberals crying about Trump inciting violence is nothing more than a dog and pony show, here is your proof.  In their own words they repeatedly call for violence against both Trump and his supporters.  [Video clip]

Japanese Journalist Discovers Video Proof ANTIFA Coordinated Capitol Attack.  Independent Japanese journalist Masako Ganaha analyses videos from inside the Capitol building.  The behavior of several individuals suggests that there was coordinated action among the agitators.  [Video clip]

Video Allegedly Shows One Of The Main Provocateurs Involved In Babbitt's Shooting Going Behind A Squad Of Police On The Stairs Change His Clothes And Disappear.  FBI placed a warning of "armed protests" being planned at all 50 state capitols and Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day.  Security has been stepped up in Washington following last week's violent riot at the U.S Capitol where a mob of pro-Trump supporters stormed the building to prevent Congress from certifying the election.  Citing "credible threats" against the popular landmark, the National Park Service has shut down the Washington Monument.  However, the riots that happened on Jan. 6 are still causing concerns about the safety of the capitol as well as accusations by some GOP members that wasn't only Trump supporters that stormed the Capitol.

Known Antifa Member Admits they were Paid to Infiltrate Trump Protests in DC, Wants his Money!  There [has] been a massive amount of Antifa, Homeless, regular citizens, etc., that have admitted they were bused in and paid to cause havoc at Trump rallies.  The media doesn't want you to know that this is happening like it did throughout the worlds "Color Revolutions".  [Video clip]

Propane Tanks and 2x4's Are Magically Appear Along Roads in DC the Trump Rally will Use.  Over the past 12 years we have watched Antifa terrorists engage in blatant acts of terrorism in order to turn the USA into a communist nation.  Now, the group seems emboldened and looks to be staging terrorist attacks using propane tanks as explosive devices along the route where Trump supporters will be walking during the Jan. 6th "Stop the Steal" rally.  As usual, the FBI is nowhere to be found.  [Video clip]

What Now?  When enemies of Trump, and of freedom, created violence and mayhem in cities around the country, they were whitewashed, protected, and even praised by the media, by Democratic politicians, and by police officials.  In a debate with Trump, Biden said Antifa was an idea, not an organization.  Congressman Jerrold Nadler called it a myth.  Meanwhile Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave BLM $3 million.  While the leftist gangsters went unpunished, citizens who tried to protect their homes and businesses from destruction by them were arrested by the police and demonized in the media.  If you tried to spread the truth about all this on social media, you were shut down by Silicon Valley bosses who said you were lying.

Cops, Kids, Reporters & Activists Were Murdered As Democrats Incited 2020 Riots; Now They've Accused Trump of Their Tactics.  The same media and Hollywood collective that derided American police in 2020 is now flooding the airwaves with their crocodile tears about the police who were on the front lines against trouble-making demonstrators at the nation's Capitol on Wednesday.  News networks sickly dedicated just a few seconds to the death of black police officer David Dorn, murdered at the hands of Black Lives Matter looters in June 2020.  Back then Joe Biden was silent about the killings, too, despite attacking President Trump and his supporters for Wednesday's violence at the Capitol.  There's certainly enough blame in America to go around.  But to be proportionate, let's analyze some things very clearly.

James O'Keefe Strikes Again:  PBS Counsel Michael Beller Caught on Video Promoting Violence.  James O'Keefe and Project Veritas scored another significant hit on the liberal mainstream media on Tuesday morning [1/12/2021].  Veritas recorded PBS Principal Counsel Michael Beller inciting violence against Trump supporters in a radical leftwing rant.

Here's a Perfect Explanation of Why the Capitol Hill Riot Happened.  In truth, it's been made clear to some Americans that attempting to talk it out and even take their grievances to the voting booth isn't working.  However, they flip on the news and see riots happening as those involved scream things like "black lives matter" or "defund the police."  They see this and then see politicians, media, and "experts" heap praise on these violent radicals, and politicians both defend and even encourage them.  For some Americans, they see violence get results and a dangerous idea begins to formulate in their head.

28 Times Media And Democrats Excused Or Endorsed Violence Committed By Left-Wing Activists.  [Numerous video clips]

Antifa Hands Out Weapons from Bag During Storming of US Capitol.  A new video was released that shows Antifa terrorists handing out weapons to their comrades during the storming of the US Capitol.  This should come as no surprise for Gateway Pundit readers.  As we reported earlier today Antifa organized a rally near the US Capitol on Wednesday.  On Friday investigative journalist Millie Weaver ran into Antifa activist and protest leader John Sullivan in Washington DC.  She overheard him say he was not being charged.  [Video clip]

Crazy 2020 Is Dead!  Long Live Crazier 2021!  Of course, there is no such thing as "good" or "acceptable" violence of either Trump supporters or of the Antifa and BLM sort.  Yet the latter were largely exempt from any consequences for most of the summer — despite Joe Biden's demagogic implication that the now multibillion-dollar funded BLM was treated harshly in comparison to the rogue Trump rioters.  Do we remember the authorities' exemptions given to "warlord" Raz Simone and his armed thugs who, with absolute impunity, took over a Seattle "autonomous zone" known as CHOP or CHAZ, where four shootings and two deaths followed?  Who exactly destroyed or vandalized thousands of state and federal public monuments — some in Washington, D.C. — and burned and looted hundreds of buildings with impunity?  Those who wrongly demanded to defund the police, now rightly deplore the lack of a Capitol police presence.  Their only consistency is their own perceived political self-interest.

Video: Mob Savages Beat Capitol Police Officer Viciously.  For those who missed it yesterday when it was circulating on social media, here's what "back the blue" meant to some of the cretins who descended on the Capitol last Wednesday.  I don't know for a fact that the cop being attacked is Officer Sicknick but I'd be amazed if the person who took this beating survived it.  [Video clip]

Just Months Ago, Democrats Blocked a Resolution Condemning Mob Violence.  When a mob of rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Thursday, leaders from both political parties universally condemned the historic act of political violence. [...] After months ignoring and justifying Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, Democrats also condemned the Capitol violence.  "This assault is just that.  It shows the weakness of those who've had to show through violence what their message was," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said.  Senate Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., echoed the sentiment, arguing those who using political violence should face the harshest penalties available.  "Those who performed these reprehensible acts cannot be called protesters — no, these were rioters and insurrectionists, goons and thugs, domestic terrorists... they must and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."  The cross-party condemnations came as a welcomed move.  But that very the same Congress was anything but united on the issue of mob violence remarkably recently.  This July, those same congressional Democrats killed a resolution aimed at curbing mob violence.

There Was No Revolution.  There was no revolution.  There was no pro-Trump coup attempt.  Everyone knows it.  A couple of crackpots who pranked at the Capitol are now being called a "revolution."  As if that crazy, painted-face shaman with the buffalo-horn hat was leading — what are they calling it?  Ah yes, an insurrection.  There was a call by millions of Americans for election integrity.  It was met with "shoot to kill" behavior and then a great purge.  It wasn't a revolution; it was more like an ambush.  No one is asking who gave the shoot-to-kill order or who gave the order to invite protesters into the Capitol building.  We do know that the January 6, 2021 Capitol protesters were invited in.  See the video [online].  What we do know is that there were scores of Trump rallies attended by hundreds of thousands of people, with not one incident.  What we do know is our people are peaceful, respectful and law-abiding.  What we do know is we are a subclass — "Untouchables" — who have been brutally punished at every turn, most especially this past year, by Democrat despots.  We do know is that we witnessed months of "insurrection" — burning cities, government buildings, streets, and even sometimes homes, and were told it was peaceful and necessary.  That was insurrection.

Why Cowardly Republicans Got Hysterical about the Capitol Riots.  Over the last six months, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa riots caused two billion dollars in property damage, killed at least 25 people, and injured over 2,000 police officers.  Rioters occupied and burned a police station in Minneapolis.  They attacked a federal courthouse in Portland every night for months.  In Seattle, Antifa set up an "autonomous zone" where five people were murdered, including two teenagers shot to death when they drove "too fast" near an armed checkpoint.  Senator Kamala Harris applauded the rioters.  In June, amid the burning and looting of large swaths of Minneapolis, she said the riots were "not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not."  Then she raised money to bail rioters out of jail.  Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan called Seattle's Antifa autonomous zone a "summer of love" before five people died.  Two months after the riots began, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley called for more "unrest in the streets."

Democrats close in for the kill — not just Trump, but all Republicans.  When George Floyd, an ex-con convicted of a brutal crime died from a drug overdose while Minneapolis police restrained him in accordance with their department's training materials, Democrats across America went wild.  Minneapolis alone suffered half a billion dollars in damages, most to small business owners, many of whom are black.  The dam burst in all major Democrat-run cities.  Unhindered by lockdowns, Democrats rioted, looted, burned, assaulted, and murdered in New York, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle, just to name a few places.  And let us not forget what they did in D.C., where they tried to burn historic St. John's church, tore down equally historic statues, smothered public property with obscene graffiti, and attacked the White House.  This wasn't the Democrats' first assault on D.C.  For just one example, Ed Driscoll reminds us that, back in 2018, Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi applauded Democrats who stormed Pelosi's office.  According to Pelosi, it was a good thing to see activists "organize and participate in our Democracy." Indeed, they have had a habit of urging violence against Trump and his supporters.

Here's a disturbing video of people inciting violence if that's really Twitter's concern.  As Twitchy reported Friday [1/8/2021], Twitter has permanently suspended the @realDonaldTrump account, explaining, "We have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence."  There are a lot of videos like this one going around, but this one, put together by Caldron Pool, might be one of the best and most extensive.  While Democrats and the media are clutching their pearls over the president's alleged incitement of violence this week, here are some other people Twitter might want to take a look at if inciting violence is a bannable offense.  [Link to video clip]

Death of Capitol Police Officer After Protest May Not Be as Initially Reported.  The death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was a tragedy.  But as it turns out, the facts originally reported about his death may not have been accurate.  The initial story implied that he died from an attack by protesters at the Capitol, it was even reported that he was hit with a fire extinguisher.  Apparently though, the facts as of this moment are not there to confirm that claim.  Yet that has gone everywhere as "facts."  Indeed, according to ABC, they are reporting that Sicknick's death may have been "driven by a medical condition." [...] Now his death may have been been related to interactions with the protesters, but we should wait until the evidence is in.  People are being whipped up based on unconfirmed or outright false reports, in a highly charged political climate.  Meanwhile, folks on the left on Twitter are spreading a video which they allege is Sicknick being beaten to death by Trump supporters, after his family asked people not to make his passing political.  It isn't him and it's not entirely clear what the video shows.

The Editor says...
[#1] Beating a cop with a fire extinguisher doesn't sound like something a Republican would do.  But it does sound like something an Antifa infiltrator would do.  [#2] I'm sure the Twitter Thought Police will remove the video if it's being used to spread misleading ideas.

Large Antifa Group Marches Right Down 7th Avenue in NYC In Full Black Bloc With Battle Shields.  With the Capitol protest, Democrats and media who had ignored or dismissed vandalism or violence at protests for months suddenly discovered the law again and they are using the incident to try to crush anyone related to the rally, despite the fact that thousands of people went with the intention to peacefully express their political opinions and only a smaller number of extremists broke the law. [...] During the inauguration of Donald Trump, thousands of radical leftists rioted in the streets of D.C., attacking police, setting things on fire.  Not only did Democrats not condemn that action against the government, they legitimized it by calling Trump illegitimate, with 71 members of Congress saying that and refusing to attend his inauguration.  Yet all their Twitter accounts are intact, no one has called their actions "inciting."  Meanwhile, now with a Democratic administration on the horizon, today, a large group of Antifa has come out of their normal actions in the darkness, to march boldly down 7th Avenue in New York City in the broad daylight, chanting, "Whose streets, our streets!"

Trump supporters, counter-protesters clash violently in Pacific Beach.  Counter-protesters clashed violently with supporters of President Donald Trump at a rally in Pacific Beach Saturday, and police ordered people to leave the area as they tried to maintain order.  The event, described in flyers as a "Patriot March," took place along Ocean Front Walk and began early Saturday afternoon.  A group of counter-demonstrators — including members of anti-fascist groups, clad in all black and holding sticks or bats — showed up to face off with the pro-Trump group, and at times the tense exchanges turned violent.

'Hang Mike Pence' trends on Twitter after platform suspends Trump.  Twitter saw a surprising item trending on Friday night when "Hang Mike Pence" hit around 14,000 tweets, according to reports.  The social media platform announced Friday night that it was permanently suspending President Donald Trump's Twitter account.  The decision was made "due to the risk of further incitement of violence," according to a statement on the company's blog.  Many users were confused, then, to see such a violent item in the trending section.

The Left Is Enjoying Its Reichstag Fire Moment.  [Scroll down]  The parallels to what is happening today are obvious.  In the wake of the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the Democrats are trying to criminalize opposition to their program, painting all support of President Trump and his America-First program as incitement to violence and tantamount to sedition.  He has been shut out of the major social media networks that exercise near-total control over the means of communication today.  And as Trump himself has pointed out repeatedly, for all the demonic frenzy of their desire to destroy him utterly, he is really not the target.  We are.  The National Socialists used the Reichstag fire to destroy all political opposition in Germany and assert total control over the lives of every German citizen. [...] The American Left of today has followed the Nazis' Reichstag Fire playbook to a T thus far.  What is to prevent them from attempting to implement the whole thing?  The one thing saving us from woke totalitarianism at this point may be the fact that the sinister authoritarians of the Democratic Party, the social media corporations, and the establishment media may already have overreached.

Twenty-First Century Rules for Revolutionaries.  #8: Ultimate victory in the revolution will go to that segment of the revolutionary body that is the best organized, best financed, and most ideologically dedicated.  A revolutionary movement can be composed of many divergent groups, each of which has a peeve with the central government.  In our country we have, among others, minorities, LGBTQ, and feminists all rubbing shoulders with liberals, socialists, anarchists, globalists, Islamists, and hardcore Marxist revolutionaries.  The last group is the best organized and funded.  They are completely devoted to the "righteousness" of their ideology and even have their own para-military group — Antifa.  Their goal is the complete destruction of the American political and economic system.

The Night of the Tech Long Knives.  [Scroll down]  In any event the Capitol has been the scene of worse.  It was set afire by the British in 1812.  In 1915 a Harvard professor planted dynamite near the Senate Reception Room which went off as "an exclamation point in my appeal for peace."  In March 1954 four Puerto Rican nationalists in the visitors' [gallery] shot and wounded five members of Congress.  President Carter later pardoned them.  In March of 1971 the Weather Underground set off a bomb in the Senate side of the Capitol causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.  (Bill Ayers was the leader of the group.  He was a Chicago colleague of Barack Obama and is widely believed to have ghostwritten Dreams of My Father, improbably attributed to Barack.  Ayers's wife Bernardine Dohrn, also a member of the group, is a retired professor of law at Northwestern University.  The son of two other members of the group whom they raised while his mother was in prison, Chesa Boudin, is a George Soros-funded district attorney of San Francisco, where he's been successful in adopting policies causing significant increases in crime.)  Twelve years after the Weather Underground bombing, a leftist group set off a bomb which blew off the door of Senator Byrd's office.  In contrast to those events, videos show the Capitol police removing the barriers to the building and ushering through the mostly obedient and respectful crowd.

After Colin Kaepernick praised deadly BLM riots, Twitter CEO gave him $3 million.  Last year, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweeted praise for the ongoing violent riots that were gripping the country at the time.  He stayed on Twitter and even got a $3 million donation from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.  This week, President Trump was kicked off Twitter for good for allegedly inciting violence among his supporters before they stormed the U.S. Capitol.  The contrast gained immediate attention, highlighted by the news site Not the Bee shortly after Trump was banned from Twitter on Friday [1/8/2021].  In one 2020 tweet highlighted by the site, Kaepernick said of the destructive demonstrations occurring across the country:  "When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction."

10 Times Democrats Urged Violence Against Trump And His Supporters.  While Democratic politicians and the corporate media blamed President Donald Trump for the mob riot at the Capitol on Wednesday, saying his rhetoric incited violence, many of these same lawmakers and bureaucrats have for years called for violence and physical action against those who believe differently than they do.  "Hate to break it to you but if Trump had won, there would have been violence on Wednesday, and it most certainly would have been worse.  How do I know?  Because Democrats have been endorsing violence as a political tactic throughout the Trump Administration," wrote Grabien founder Tom Elliott on Twitter.  In an extensive thread, Elliott outlined many examples of Democratic politicians and other leftists advocating for violence as a response to conservatives.  In 2018, Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California said on MSNBC that if Trump fired special counsel Robert Mueller, there would be "widespread civil unrest" as people would "take to the streets."  Similarly, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed that if Trump fired Mueller, it would "set off a firestorm not only on the Hill but also in the streets."

Why Hypocrisy on Violence Matters.  As the whole nation and the entire world now know, the United States Capitol was violently overrun on January 6, 2020. [...] As the situation started to unfold, conservatives rapidly took to social media to swiftly condemn it.  Republican lawmakers did the same once they safely emerged from secure locations after being evacuated from the House and Senate floors.  Then, former Vice President and President-elect Joe Biden made a statement. [...] "The work of the moment and the work of the next four years must be the restoration of democracy — of decency, honor, respect, the rule of law, just plain, simple decency. [...] Decency, respect, tolerance — that's who we are, that's who we've always been."  It actually isn't "who we've always been," and look no further than Biden's side of the political aisle for proof.  Just last year, Americans watched as cities around the country were ransacked by Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters.  People were killed, government buildings came under siege, and thousands of buildings owned by hard-working Americans were burned to the ground.  They were the most expensive riots in American history and lasted for months.

Rage at Capitol assault makes excuses for summer riots all the more disgraceful.  Wednesday's mob assault on Capitol Hill was shocking and brazen:  Hundreds of MAGA-hat-wearing rioters broke into the seat of American democracy.  They stormed the halls, looting property and assaulting law enforcers, all in service of an absurd political demand: reversing the outcome of an election.  Now where had I witnessed such scenes before?  The answer:  in blue-governed cities in my native Pacific Northwest throughout last summer and into the fall and winter.  The right-wing political violence was met with universal rebuke from politicians of both parties and the media.  But many of those who are loudest in condemning the Capitol Hill riot went radio-silent when rioters destroyed and looted in the name of Black Lives Matter.

Two known Antifa members posed as pro-Trump to infiltrate Capitol riot: sources.  At least two known Antifa members were spotted among the throngs of pro-Trump protesters at the Capitol on Wednesday [1/6/2021], a law enforcement source told The [New York] Post.  The Antifa members disguised themselves with pro-Trump clothing to join in the DC rioting, said the sources, who spotted the infiltrators while monitoring video coverage from the Capitol.  The infiltrators were recognized due to their participation in New York City demonstrations, and were believed to have joined in the rioting so that Trump would get blamed, the source said.

Ashamed of What?  People ask me if I feel "ashamed" about what Miranda Devine describes as "the clueless insurrection" in the Capitol on Wednesday.  My response?  I am about as ashamed as Joe Biden, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Juan Williams of Fox News were about the riots and shootings that the Democratic Party subsidized and even justified last summer.  Unlike those violent riots, which the Democrats and national media attributed to white racism, and which came from Democratic voters, the turmoil in the Capitol on Wednesday did not result in burning and looting.  There were no white or black policemen shot and the only shooting victim (which the media don't seem to care about since white Republican lives don't matter) was a female protestor, Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, by a Capitol police officer.

The Capitol:  So Much Susupicious Evidence.  In the now-famous picture of seven guys scaling the wall to the Capitol Building, one can see people already at the precipice.  Those are the ones who walked up the stairs (just outside the frame) when the entirely inadequate security melted away.  Wow, it is almost as if it is a staged photo reminiscent of the dozen versions of the Russians raising the flag over the Reichstag in 1945 or Pelosi's garage.  Me?  I would have taken the stairs, but then I would not have been wearing a headscarf and a backpack with a tool dangling from my belt as three of the four nearest the top were begging for the director to yell, "Cut!" [...] False flag?  Hitler put less effort into setting up Poland with Operation Himmler at the inception of WWII, the "big one" (as Archie Bunker used to say).  No security and no weapons — what a surprise.  It's almost as if they wanted this.  Yet they still managed to kill a woman by shooting through a door.  Deadly force is allowed only when you fear for your life or the lives of others.  From multiple videos, one can see that what Ashli Babbitt was doing had not yet met that threshold.

The breach of the Capitol was an obvious set-up.  What happened at the Capitol building on Wednesday [1/6/2021] obviously was a stratagem to destroy the President's popularity and support and overshadow the challenges to the Electoral College vote, to my eyes.  The building was breached at the beginning of that process and, of course, riveted the media news feeds.  Members of Congress were evacuated with hoods over their heads as if they were in grave danger.  As a group of protesters approached the building, a policeman removed the barricade and appeared to invite them in.  That group entered the rotunda peacefully and stayed behind the rope line.  Those who observed this noted that there were several instigators embedded among the crowd.  They were using bullhorns to agitate and move people.  A couple of them set off flash bangs.  We now know that several known Antifa activists were among the agitators.  As they broke windows, Trump supporters tried to stop them.  But the distraction worked, frightened the pathetically spineless Republicans who were set to challenge the stolen election.  They quickly capitulated and Biden was certified.  The Republicans, even the ones we thought had grit, got rolled.

Left-wing Activist Encouraged Intruders Inside Capitol, Urged Police to Leave Post.  John Sullivan, videographer and founder of "a group for racial justice and police reform," posted a video on YouTube on Jan. 7 that shows him entering the Capitol building in Washington with a group of Trump supporters and possibly others on the previous day.  He's heard on video encouraging others and convincing Capitol police to let the trespassers through at several impasses.  The video also reveals further details about the situation that led to the death of Ashley Babbitt, an Air Force veteran shot inside the building by Capitol Police.  Sullivan is known for taking part in protests and riots connected with the Black Lives Matter movement, which was founded by Marxist organizers.  In July, he was arrested in Utah for alleged rioting, making a threat of violence, and criminal mischief due to his part in a protest that resulted in the shooting of a motorist.

Reporter Who Followed the Mob Into the Capitol Shares What He Saw.  Julio Rosas, a senior writer for Townhall, was at the Capitol on Wednesday when violence broke out as supporters of President Donald Trump forced their way into the building.  Rosas, who has spent the past several months reporting on riots across America, followed the mob inside the Capitol to capture the situation on video.  He joins the show today to explain what it was like to be in the middle of the chaos.  [Podcast]

Black Lives Matter Activist Took Part in Storming of Capitol.  John Earle Sullivan, who has advocated for an armed revolution on social media, was arrested in July 2020 for making a threat of violence and criminal mischief.  He organized a protest with Black Lives Matter activists and members of the far-left Antifa network.  According to the Deseret News, Sullivan damaged vehicles and urged people to block roadways.  Video footage captured him threatening to beat a woman.  Photographs showed Sullivan inside the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6.  Sullivan has since given interviews claiming he took part in the illegal breach of the building as part of an effort to understand supporters of President Donald Trump.  "For me, it's important from the group and the people around me to see that side of things, to see the truth," Sullivan told KSL-TV.  "I don't care, like what side you're on, you should just see it raw."  Sullivan has not been charged with unlawful entry or any other charges that police say other people who entered the building face.  His picture is not among those circulated by authorities of persons of interest in the incident.

John Sullivan
Utah Man With a History of Organizing Violent Antifa, BLM Protests, Was Inside the Capitol.  We're beginning to learn more about the individuals who were inside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday [1/6/2021].  A young man named John Sullivan was there.  He's from Utah and the founder of "Insurgence USA," which is a group dedicated to "racial justice and police reform."  According to numerous news reports, he has a history of organizing leftist protests and identifies with Black Lives Matter.  Over the summer, Sullivan was arrested after organizing a violent riot in Utah that ended with a shooting.  One of the host groups was the Salt Lake Antifascist [Antifa] Coalition.


BLM activist inside Capitol claims he was 'documenting' riots, once said 'burn it all down'.  An anti-Trump activist who once said he wanted to "rip" the president out of office entered the Capitol Building Wednesday [1/6/2021] alongside a mob of pro-Trump protesters, but he said he was just there to "document" it.  "There's this narrative going around right now that Antifa was the people there causing the riots, causing the tension, they were the only people breaking into the Capitol, and I wanted to be able to tell a part of history and show that that was anything but the case," John Sullivan, the founder of Utah-based Insurgence USA, told Fox News Thursday.  Insurgence USA describes itself as "the revolution."  It began protesting racial injustice in policing last year following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

Update:
Far Left Activist John Sullivan from Utah Who Was Arrested for Storming the US Capitol Is Released without Charges.  John Sullivan, a noted leftist leader from Utah, stormed the US Capitol with fellow activists on Wednesday.  John Sullivan is a Black Lives Matter goon from Utah who was flown into DC during the planned "Stop the Steal" rally.  In August John Sullivan threatened to "rip President Trump from the White House" during violence in Washington DC.  Sullivan was flown to DC for the protests. [...] On Friday investigative journalist Millie Weaver ran into John Sullivan in Washington DC.  She overheard him say he was not being charged.

Update 2:
Antifa Member Who Filmed Shooting of Ashli Babbitt Charged With Rioting in Capitol — Who was He "Inciting"?  An 18-page criminal complaint was filed and signed yesterday by a federal judge in Washington DC, charging John Sullivan with numerous offenses in connection with his actions inside the Capitol on January 6.  Early in the complaint, the FBI Agent who provided the affidavit in support described Sullivan as follows:  ["]11. SULLIVAN... is a resident of Utah.  Based on publicly available information and information provided by SULLIVAN in an interview on January 7, 2021, ... SULLIVAN is the leader of an organization called Insurgence USA through which he organizes protests.["] [...] Who was he inciting?  Sullivan is known by the username "JaydenX" on some social media platforms.  Insurgence USA is an avowedly Antifa organization.

Left-wing activist charged after claiming he was in DC to 'document' riot.  An anti-Trump activist from Utah — who claimed he traveled to Washington, DC, to document the violent siege on Capitol Hill — was arrested Thursday [1/14/2021].  John Sullivan was taken into custody Thursday and faces charges of civil disorder, entering a restricted building and violent entry or disorderly conduct after participating in the violent mob of President Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol last week, according to court documents filed in federal court.  In the footage he provided to the FBI, Sullivan can be heard saying as rioters climb a wall, "You guys are [...] savage.  Let's go!" prosecutors say.  Once inside the Capitol, he tells the protestors, "We gotta get this [...] burned.  He also says, "it's our house [...]" and "we are getting this [...]" as he roamed the building, according to court papers.  Sullivan can also be heard arguing with cops, telling them, "you are putting yourself in harm's way.  The people have spoken," and "there are too many people, you gotta stand down."

The Left Finds Time for One More Big Lie Against Trump.  [Scroll down]  The reality is that the anarchists of Antifa and violent Leftist extremists of Black Lives Matter — and their Democrat, Mainstream Media, Hollywood, and Academia apologists — changed the rules of protest in America.  Martin Luther King taught us in the 1950s and 1960s about non-violent civil disobedience, and that became an American social norm for protest. [...] By contrast, this past year we saw one of the two major political parties unabashedly excuse and allow for Antifa destruction and Black Lives Matter violence, burning cities and violently attacking police.  It evolved into a tragic, newly accepted norm of American protest.  Democrat big city mayors not only excused rioters' brutal street violence, but even allowed anarchists to control whole street blocks of their cities.  Even in blue lockdown states where masks and social distancing were legally mandated, special dispensation excused BLM and Antifa rioters as they broke windows, looted stores, and tore down monuments of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, other abolitionists — even defacing a memorial to Raoul Wallenberg who gave his life defying Nazis.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler assaulted at restaurant:  Police.  Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler was assaulted at a restaurant Wednesday evening [1/6/2021] during a confrontation with protesters, police said.  According to local news reports, Mr. Wheeler was having dinner with a woman in the outdoor dining area of a northwest Portland restaurant when he was approached by a group of protesters.  "I think you need to leave," Mr. Wheeler told one protester, who was recording the incident, according to footage posted on Twitter by a Defund the Police account.

Pipe Bombs Found in Republican, Democratic Headquarters in DC: Officials.  Police in Washington D.C. confirmed late on Wednesday that explosives were located near the U.S. Capitol in the midst of protests and as people stormed the complex.  D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department said it recovered a pipe bomb from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and another one from the Republican National Committee (RNC), said Chief Robert Contee in a press conference.  Molotov cocktails were also found in a vehicle on the Capitol grounds, Contee said.  The FBI confirmed that two explosive devices were found.

The Viking Guy Who Entered Capitol Is Actor, Took Picture With Pelosi's Son-In-Law.  [Scroll down]  About the Trump Viking, he turns out to be an actor named Jake Angeli from Phoenix, Arizona.  He also attended a Black Lives Matter rally in January of last year. [...] Angeli is not on the wanted FBI list because he was already identified.  Even do the Metropolitan Police on Thursday released photos of members of the violent mob wanted on federal charges after storming the US Capitol building and Jake is on one of the photos as a person of interest.

Remember when the Democrats rioted?  Throughout 2020, for months on end, in dozens of American cities, numerous mobs involving hundreds-of-thousands of left-wing thugs devoted to the Democrat party and its policies, rioted, burned, looted, and murdered.  The memorable images remind us of this carnage.  As a result of this rampant lawlessness, dozens of innocent Americans were murdered — including several police officers — hundreds of police officers were significantly injured, and billions of dollars of U.S. property — often minority-owned small businesses — was destroyed.  The property destruction was the "most costly manmade damage to American property" in U.S. history.  In spite of all of this, as they have done for years, whether through their silence or direct words, Democrat politicians across America, along with their apologists in the left-wing media, encouraged and enabled this evil.  House Democrats blocked a resolution that condemned the rioting and looting, and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris helped raise bail money for the many criminals arrested throughout the riots.

We Ain't Going To Submit and We Won't Forget.  After four years of a sustained coup attempt to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump, the Washington establishment now wants us, the deplorables, to sit down, shut up and accept a steal.  Here's a news flash.  We will not. [...] When Black Lives Matter and Antifa ravaged some of our major cities over the last 9 months, these clowns did not denounce the rioting, looting and violence.  They lied and called it peaceful protests.  But the Silent Majority saw with their own eyes the desecration of statues, the assaults on law abiding citizens, the destruction of small businesses.  When disgruntled Democrats and Hollywood elite insisted, "Trump is not our President", the media did not denounce them as "insurrectionists."  When Madonna called for blowing up the White House the only outrage came from Trump supporters.  The rest of the establishment yawned and celebrated.  When Kathy Griffin, a low rent, untalented comedian, decapitated a model of Donald Trump, the media again shrugged this off as nothing of import.

36 capitol suspects
DC police release photos of suspects in US Capitol siege.  Police in Washington, DC, have released dozens of photos of President Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, causing widespread damage and sending the nation's capital into lockdown.  The DC Metropolitan Police Department posted the photos online late Thursday, with images that include a man identified by media as Jake Angeli, a 32-year QAnon loyalist known in right-wing circles as the "Q Shaman."  "We still have a significant amount of work ahead of us to identify and hold each and every one of the violent mob accountable for their actions," DC Police Chief Robert Contee said at a briefing.  "We have collected numerous images of persons of interest that we are asking the community to helps us identify," he said.  "These images depict individuals engaged in various acts of violence or property destruction."  Contee said 68 people have been arrested — only one of them from DC.

Enough With the Outrage.  Do you remember when President Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017? Leftist Democrats rioted in Washington that day.  That riot was arguably worse, more violent and more destructive, than what happened in D.C. yesterday.  The liberal rioters destroyed stores, set vehicles on fire and battled with the police.  Six police officers were wounded.  Here is a video reminder:  [Video clip]  I don't recall a single Democratic office-holder denouncing the Democrats' Inauguration Day riot, and the Associated Press came perilously close to praising the rioters.  Over the ensuing four years, Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioted countless times, bringing devastation to cities like Portland, Seattle, Kenosha and Minneapolis.  Did any Democrats denounce these riots?  Not that I remember.  Many Democrats endorsed them, or seemed to do so.

Manhunt underway for suspect who left pipe bombs in DC during Capitol riots.  The FBI's Washington Field Office released a surveillance photo on Thursday [1/7/2021] of a person suspected of leaving pipe bombs near both the Republican and Democratic National Committee headquarters on Wednesday.  The grainy images does not have much detail, as the suspect is wearing a hooded sweatshirt and mask at the time the photo was taken.

NY Post:  New Info From Law Enforcement Source About Antifa at Capitol Protest.  As we previously reported, the 'horn guy' who infamously made it into the Senate chamber and was featured in many pictures with horns on his head and paint on his face is an actor and a known Trump and Q supporter.  There is a picture of him at a BLM protest, but he was there as a counter-protester holding a Q sign.  The sign was cropped out of the picture that went viral on social media. [...] There was a very identifiable BLM protester there whose common hashtags were BLM and Antifa.  His name is John Sullivan from Utah and he was arrested at a violent BLM protest in July.  He helped organize a protest where a motorist was shot by another BLM person.  He also advocated for ripping the president from the White House.  He was next to the doors, near Ashli Babbitt when she was shot.

We Desperately Need SOME Institution to Execute as Constitutionally Designed.  There have been hundreds of Trump gatherings.  All have been violence-free.  There have been hundreds of Antifa-Black Lives Matter gatherings.  Almost all have resulted in violence.  Yesterday, many Antifa-Black Lives Matter people were clearly identified in attendance of the Trump gathering.  Violence ensued.  On which group does logic dictate the blame falls?

Worrisome Signs the Capitol Breach was Planned to Discredit Trump Supporters:  An Eyewitness Account.  Based on what I saw and read, I have no doubt that dozens and possibly even hundreds of Antifa and/or other provocateurs had infiltrated the rally in order to carry out violent acts and suck impressionable Trump supporters into their antics.  None of this violence was justified, but contrast the frustration and conflicted attitude of this Capitol building trespasser with that of the proud of this BLM rioter.  One calls for prayer while the other calls for "reparations."  Some of the more impulsive Trump supporters fell into a trap that served to scapegoat both the Trump administration and the 99.9% of rally participants who neither condoned nor participated in any of the violence.

Doing Better.  Then there was the kerfuffle on Capitol Hill, where Trump stalwart and Air Force vet Ashli Babbitt was gunned down by Capitol cops.  By all accounts, Babbitt was a victim, not a perpetrator.  She should be remembered as an innocent who is casualty of war.  Let's also recall the Boston Massacre was a catalyst for the Revolution.  Since Wednesday, we're gaining insights into the Hill fracas.  It's looking more like a false flag event with each passing hour.  But why should it surprise us that the left would infiltrate provocateurs into MAGA crowds at the Capitol to spark confrontations with police?  That's Brownshirt 101 stuff.  We do know who we're up against, don't we?

Breaching the Capitol:  The Surprise That Was No Surprise.  [Scroll down]  Norms no longer exist.  A judge was killed last year.  Congress members were shot at a baseball game.  Representative Steve Scalise was almost murdered.  BLM and Antifa attacked federal buildings, businesses, and people.  Few have been arrested and held accountable.  Senator Rand Paul was attacked by his next door neighbor.  Senator Josh Hawley's wife and infant child was threatened in Missouri in the middle of the night.  People are yelling at strangers to A) wear a mask and videotaping and harassing them or B) not wear a mask and are videotaping and harassing them.  Young people are attacking children wearing MAGA hats.  The media is defaming teenagers and innocent people.  All rules of civility are gone.

Law Enforcement Draws Criticism After Breach of Capitol Building.  Americans looked on in shock Wednesday [1/6/2021] as a calm protest turned into an angry mob that swarmed past barriers and stormed the Capitol — spraying officers with chemical agents, breaking windows and doors and looting sizable objects — as the Capitol Police struggled to contain the violence and sometimes simply retreated.

The Editor says...
Obviously the crowd was infiltrated with left-wing agitators.  The phrase, "spraying officers with chemical agents" is the giveaway:  Disgruntled right-wing voters would not have made a trip to Washington DC with "chemical agents" in hand, and would never have unleashed bear spray or tear gas on the cops.  That's the M.O. of Antifa.

A pipe bomb was reportedly found at RNC headquarters and destroyed by authorities.  A pipe bomb was found at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee (RNC) in Washington, DC, as pro-Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, The New York Times reported.  Also on Wednesday afternoon, a suspicious package was found at the nearby headquarters of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), The Times said.  The explosive device at the RNC was destroyed by a bomb squad, according to The Times, citing an RNC official.  A Democrat told The Times anonymously that the contents of the package had not yet been identified.

Two known Antifa members posed as pro Trump to infiltrate Capitol riot: sources.  At least two known Antifa members were spotted among the throngs of pro-Trump protesters at the Capitol on Wednesday, a law enforcement source told The [New York] Post.  The Antifa members disguised themselves with pro-Trump clothing to join in the DC rioting, said the sources, who spotted the infiltrators while monitoring video coverage from the Capitol.  The infiltrators were recognized due to their participation in New York City demonstrations, and were believed to have joined in the rioting so that Trump would get blamed, the source said.  Two other DC protesters were actually Philadelphia-based Antifa members, the Washington Times reported Wednesday night, citing a retired military officer with access to facial recognition software.

Facial recognition firm claims antifa infiltrated Trump protesters who stormed Capitol.  Trump supporters say that Antifa members disguised as one of them infiltrated the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday [1/6/2021].  A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia Antifa members to two men inside the Senate.  The source provided the photo match to The Times.  One has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer.  Many Antifa members promote anarchy through violence and want the end of America in favor of a Stalinist-state.  "No more USA at all" is a protest chant.  XRVision also has identified another man who, while not known to have Antifa links, is someone who shows up at climate and Black Lives Matter protests in the West.

Were leftist provocateurs leading the way into the Capitol?  First, to state the obvious, there is no question that Trump supporters criminally entered the Capitol and behaved abominably.  All who breached the inadequate protective perimeter must be prosecuted to the full measure of the law.  Throw the book at them!  But there are grounds for suspicion that provocateurs, anxious to discredit Trump, his supporters, conservatives, and those who question the integrity of the presidential vote may have been the point of the spear in violently attacking the Capitol. [...] There must be a complete and thorough inquiry into the mob action.  I wish that I had more faith in the FBI.

The black-helmet guy
Video Surfaces in Which Antifa Member Started Breaking Windows at the Capitol and Trump Supporters Stopped the Attack.  Thousands of President Trump's supporters surrounded the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday [sic] afternoon as Congress met inside the building to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election.  Many protested peacefully, but a substantial number did not, and the entire scene quickly devolved into utter chaos.  Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona claims that Antifa had provoked the chaos.  Two more congressional Republicans had joined him. [...] Mainstream media claims that these are evidence-free claims but a video that surfaced recently shows Trump supporters as they stopped a person whom they believed to be an Antifa thug who was trying to break windows in the Capitol.


California man sentenced to four years for assaulting man who wore MAGA hat.  A San Fernando Valley man was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to assaulting a bar patron who wore a "Make America Great Again" hat inscribed in Russian, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.  Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Thomas Sokolov sentenced David Delgado to four years in jail, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.  Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced Delgado "pleaded no contest" to one felony count of "assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury," according to a March 4, 2020, press release.  Delgado had approached the victim at a bar restroom Labor Day Weekend Sept. 2, 2019, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.  Delgado kept punching the victim after he inquired what the wording on the hat meant, which caused the victim to fall to the floor, Hermosa Beach police Sgt. Robert Higgins said, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

Washington Post Defends Leftist Mob that Terrorized Sen. Josh Hawley's Wife and Newborn at Their Home.  The Washington Post defended a mob of leftist protesters, who under the cover of night yelled through a megaphone and trespassed at the home of Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., while Hawley was away and his wife and children, including a newborn, were inside.  "Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can't travel," Hawley wrote on Twitter.  "They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door."

Antifa Reportedly Attacks Home Of GOP Senator Josh Hawley, Threatens Family.  Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said late on Monday night [1/4/2021] that Antifa attacked his home in Washington, D.C., and threatened his wife and newborn baby.  "Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can't travel," Hawley wrote on Twitter.  "They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door.  Let me be clear:  My family & I will not be intimidated by left-wing violence."

Stashes Of Bricks Are Being Found In DC Near Freedom Plaza — Officially They Are For Construction Work But Locals Say They Were Left There Over Night.  Members of D.C. National Guard will respond when supporters of President Donald Trump protest the 2020 election results in downtown D.C. this week.  The D.C. National Guard will assist the Metropolitan Police Department with crowd management and traffic control, MPD's acting chief, Robert Contee, said at a news conference Monday morning.  The department is expecting a crowd larger than at two pro-Trump events in D.C. last year. [...] During a press conference on Monday [1/4/2021], Mayor Bowser asked that local area residents stay away from downtown D.C., and avoid confrontations with anyone who is "looking for a fight."  But, she warned, "we will not allow people to incite violence, intimidate our residents or cause destruction in our city."  It seems they are ready and will control the protests but why one day before the protests mysterious stashes of bricks are being found near a protest site.  Near Freedom Plaza stashes of bricks were left overnight.

Report: Person Working With Jovan Pulitzer on Voter Fraud Has His House Riddled With Bullets.  As a testament to how violent the left has become, one of the members of Jovan Pulitzer's team is reported to have had his house hit with bullets in a drive-by shooting.  The shots fired through a window of the house was said to be his "daughter's bedroom".  Pulitzer says this incident occurred just after he was granted with inspecting votes in Fulton County Georgia.  Pulitzer says he can examine 500,000 absentee ballots in a couple of hours and can determine which ballots are good and which ones are fake.  Should he be allowed to do this, it would be a devastating blow to Democrats like Gov Kemp and SOS Raffensperger who insist the election was fair.

Democrats scrape Antifa off their shoes.  Believing they succeeded in stealing the 2020 presidential election, Democrats are jettisoning the rioters they used this summer.  The Post Millennial reported, "Portland Mayor finally denounces Antifa following explosive New Years Eve clash with police."  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler whined to the press, "Why would a group of largely white, young and some middle-age men destroy the livelihood of others who are struggling to get by?"  He was talking about Democrat Antifa rioters, not himself and a host of Democrat governors and mayors who imposed draconian and ineffective rules that closed about a million small businesses nationwide.  There were explosive clashes between Democrat Antifa thugs and the police all summer long, but Wheeler blamed President Donald John Trump for the Democrat riots.

Why the Left Always Wins.  [Scroll down]  Deconstructivism is simpler to learn, easier to embrace, and tons more fun to practice than patriotic sacrifice.  The leftist has only to dilate on racism to other smug communitarians, COVID air-hug in delusional moral superiority, and his work is done.  Furthermore, the streets have been filled with kids looting stores, beating people up, even killing people, and the police don't care.  So much fun!  The alternative is a conviction to stand for God-given liberty, respect the law, bear arms, and from time to time refresh the tree of liberty with the blood of patriots.  Who's buying that — especially when your professor tells you people who believe that stuff are deplorable racists.

Six months too late...
Portland Mayor Turns On Antifa, Vows To Battle 'Lawlessness And Anarchy'.  In July, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler thought he was in control.  As BLM protests raged across the country in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in late May, Wheeler decided to mingle with protesters — a mix of BLM activists and Antifa.  Yet, instead of a rockstar crowd-surfing moment or whatever fantasy he envisioned, Wheeler was mocked as he gagged on tear gas, until he was forced to flee.  [Video clips]  Two weeks later, Wheeler had changed his tone — calling protesters who attempted to burn down a police station with people inside "attempted murderers," as the city saw its most violent month in decades — which came after the Portland City Council slashed the police budget as part of an early July push to defund the police.

New Year's Eve vandalism of federal buildings in Philly leads to multiple arrests.  Several people were arrested Thursday night after police and city highway patrol officers responded to reports of large unruly crowds and vandalism at federal buildings in Philadelphia.  Police observed a crowd on the 900 block of Market Street at about 8:50 p.m. Thursday, on New Year's Eve.  A 25-year-old man threw a brick through a window of the Robert Nix Federal Building, according to police.  The man, along with another man, age 24, and two 23-year-old women, all dressed similarly in black clothing, tried to flee the scene, but were taken into police custody.

Left-Wing Journalist Threatens Anti-Maskers & Christians During Unhinged Rant.  If you don't believe masks work as much as the media tells you, left-wing journalist and NY Times bestselling author Kurt Eichenwald wants to literally "beat you to death".  Yes, that's what he tweeted.  In a New Years Eve twitter meltdown, Eichenwald blamed "anti-maskers" for the death of his brother in law, even though he provided no proof that a maskless person infected him.

Mitch McConnell's Home Vandalized With 'Were's My Money', One Day After a Pig's Head Was Left At Pelosi's House.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home in Louisville has been vandalized with "WERES [sic] MY MONEY" overnight.  The graffiti comes one day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's was targeted with vandalism and a pig head was left at her door.  Other messages were also left for McConnell with white and red spray paint across his front porch.

Sen. Mitch McConnell's Louisville home vandalized.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home in the Highlands area of Louisville was vandalized overnight [12/2/2021].  Messages were written on the front of the home in red and white spray paint.  The words "Weres my money" were spray painted on the front door in reference to McConnell blocking an effort to increase COVID-19 stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000.

January 6th and the right to protest.  It should be anticipated that January 6 in D.C. will be wild.  It has been reported that D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser is working to suppress turnout and to punish attendees.  Several hotels have announced closure on the 4th, 5th, and 6th in an effort to limit accommodations.  It is also being reported that porta-potties are being withheld.  Antifa/BLM have threatened attendees.  These threats should be taken seriously, and attendees should be prepared to defend themselves.  I read countless op-eds and comments of how we (conservatives) will fight tyranny when pushed too far.  How much farther will we tolerate our long train of abuse?  Antifa/BLM are made up of pajama-boy, he/she miscreants, but they have one advantage against "the right."  They riot in packs.  When they decide to attack, they do so in groups, usually against easy targets (women, older men, young persons, etc.).  They count on us wanting to work things out without resorting to violence.

Portland kicks off 2021 with a riot for the new year.  Portland rang in the new year with a riot — as vandals wreaked havoc throughout the Oregon city, tossing Molotov cocktails and attacking law enforcement with rocks and bricks, police said.  The crowd convened around 7:45 p.m. near Chapman Square downtown, the heart of protests that raged in the city throughout 2020.  Portland police said at least two Molotov cocktails were thrown and commercial-grade fireworks were launched at the federal courthouse and Justice Center, which some rioters attempted to break into.

Pelosi's Home Vandalized with Pig's Head, Fake Blood; Antifa Has Been Accused!.  Nancy Pelosi's home in San Francisco has been vandalized.  Her garage was spray painted, fake blood was poured all over the place, and a pig head was involved. [...] It is highly suspected that the vandalism was due to anger over the stimulus package.  Antifa has been accused.  San Francisco is mostly Democrat, so it is widely believed that this vandalism was NOT carried about by conservatives.

Calling the Presidential Election — and Beyond.  If you're thinking Joe Biden will be seated behind the desk in the Oval Office on January 20, put that thought on hold.  I'm standing by my Sept. 26 prediction that President Trump will serve a consecutive second term.  What happens between now and inauguration day, and in the weeks following, will not be pretty.  I believe tensions will rise sharply after Jan. 6, and when it's finally announced that Joe and Dr. Jill will not be moving to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, you can expect to see violence across America like you've never seen before.  The Deep State, both the vanguard in Congress and their Marxist street guerillas, will not like being Trumped a second time. [...] Anyone who's thinking ahead has already stocked up on essentials.  That includes a few months' worth of food, medicine, and yes, toilet paper.  We can pray that it doesn't happen, but several sources with decades of experience in our nation's intelligence agencies told me they expect approximately 300,000 ruffians to hit the streets and vent their anger at the news of Trump's 2nd term, and they expect the violence to be intense and widespread.  However, those same insiders also say those numbers will dwindle relatively quickly.  As one former agent told me, "Half of those causing chaos will be basement dwellers who'd curl up in the fetal position after getting hit in the face with a bean bag."  He went on to predict that after a week, the number of "protestors" nationwide will drop to about 150,000.  He then predicted that the number of street thugs would continue to drop by about half each week until things settled down.

School Superintendent Accepts Apology of Teacher of the Year Rodney Robinson for 'Joke' Calling for Beating of Mitch McConnell.  Richmond, Virginia School Superintendent Jason Kamras accepted the "heartfelt" apology by 2019 National Teacher of the Year Rodney Robinson for calling for the beating of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).  Robinson later said he meant the comment as a joke.  Kamras did not indicate whether Robinson will face any repercussions. [...] Robinson made his Twitter account private Wednesday evening [12/30/2020] after being called out for the McConnell tweet.  He posted an apology to Medium on Thursday that was accepted Kamras.

Teacher of the Year Rodney Robinson Posts 'Joke' Calling for Mitch McConnell to Be Beaten Up Like Rand Paul.  Rodney Robinson, 2019 National Teacher of the Year, posted a call to Twitter on Wednesday for someone to beat up Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) like was done to his fellow Kentuckian Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). Paul had to have surgery to remove part of a lung that was damaged as a result of being attacked and beaten by a neighbor in 2017.  (Update at end.  Robinson now says he was joking.)

The Editor says...
This is a very common Democrat tactic:  They will say or do something outrageous, and if there are any objections, follow up a few days later with, "Can't you take a joke?"  Examples abound:

'National Teacher Of The Year': McConnell's Neighbors Should Attack Him Like Rand Paul's Neighbor Attacked Him.  On Wednesday, a man who was named "National Teacher of the Year" in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers tweeted that the neighbors of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should act like a "true Kentucky hero" the way that the neighbor of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) violently attacked Paul in 2017, leaving him with six broken ribs and necessitating the removal of part of his lung.  Rodney Robinson tweeted, "Who are Mitch McConnell's neighbors?  I'm just saying Rand Paul's neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do.  It's your turn to step up."  Paul's wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, "I am so disgusted by this I have no words.  The 2019 'National teacher of the Year' is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed.  This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell."

"Teacher" of the Year, Rodney Robinson, Keynote Speaker for LCPS Teachers/Staff is a Fraudulent Racist.  [Apparently Mr. Robinson would rather go to the blackest oral surgeon in town than the best oral surgeon.  That's racism.]

You're It.  The idea of Donald Trump as a cult figure is being used to defame and dismiss a patriot's sense of duty to the republic.  It's just another communist plot to keep those patriots on the sidelines while they continue their all-out assault on the republic through corrupt government practices, including the election. [...] Now, the Democrats have more aggressive tools at their disposal like BLM and Antifa and they have used them.  They have engaged in anti-white propaganda and racism in order to brand any patriot as a racist or fascist.  One can always count on the communists to accuse one of what they are themselves.  None of this is new.  It's the communist playbook by the numbers and they operate by it with no sense of self-awareness or blushing awkwardness.  Communists hammer the opposition and count on sympathizers in the press to carry their message, when that isn't enough, they send their brownshirts (Antifa) in to break some legs and set fires.  Members of their militant wing are never arrested, or, if so, quickly released.  I wonder how many Antifa and BLM were counting votes for the Democrats.  So, why is this any different from the Tea Party?  Why would the communists ever think that they could not do with today's patriot what they did to them?  The communists know they will get support from MSM and the weaklings in the Republican Party, because their success with the Tea Party has enabled all other excesses of government.

You're It.  As it stands, patriots know that if they fight back against BLM or Antifa, they will be the ones arrested, even if those groups are busily destroying property or harming people at the same time, in the same place.  That when they go to trial, they are likely to get an antagonistic judge who will heartlessly, vindictively sentence them to the maximum of the law.  That acting to save the republic will be seen as the actions of a right-wing extremist terrorist, where BLM and Antifa are considered peaceful protestors.  That the admonition to "vote for someone else" means accept your role as a non-person, without rights, without voice, but full of assets to be taxed or confiscated.  The only thing left is to throw off a tyrannical government and institute new government more likely to restore these rights and respect freedom.

In Seattle, a riot-stoking socialist councilwoman may just find herself held accountable.  This past summer, widespread protests led to outbreaks of violent crime in major cities around the country.  Public officials around the U.S. mostly condemned the violence, with some calling for calm.  In Seattle, Kshama Sawant, the socialist politician who's been known to ruffle feathers at City Hall, had a different take on the violence.  Her office was directly implicated in the months of civil destruction that overwhelmed Seattle.  Now, the people of Seattle are responding in kind, and Sawant may be held to account for the possible crimes she committed during the dangerous riots.

Woman Charged for Allegedly Sending 'Graphic and Extreme' Message to Election Official Who Wouldn't Certify Biden Win.  A New Hampshire woman has been charged for allegedly sending "graphic and extreme" messages to one of two Michigan election officials who resisted certifying the presidential election results from Detroit last month.  Wayne County Republican canvasser Monica Palmer and her GOP colleague William Hartmann voted against certifying the election results showing Democratic Joe Biden won in the state's most populous county two weeks after the election, citing glaring irregularities.  Both eventually voted in favor of certification, and reports made it increasingly clear why that might have happened.

Violent crime in cities presents new-year challenge for Democratic mayors.  Mayors from around the country are facing a common threat that isn't just the coronavirus:  spiking violent crime.  Across virtually every large urban area, a wave of violent crime has plagued residents as they struggle to adjust to new pandemic-related restrictions and a general decline in their quality of life.  From bustling metropolises such as New York to sleepier cities like Salt Lake, violent crime has reached levels not seen for years or, in some cases, decades.  According to data analyst Jeff Asher, 51 major U.S. cities saw their murder rates increase this year by an average of 35.7% through September compared to 2019.  "Big cities tend to overstate national trends in crime, but the national change in murder in 2020 will be historically awful," he wrote on Twitter.

Feds Bust Four for BLM Firebombings of Police Vehicles, Including Public Radio Journalist.  After a months-long investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), federal authorities have arrested four people in the firebombing of police vehicles with Molotov cocktails during BLM riots in Arkansas during the summer.  According to the Post Millennial, Renea Baek Goddard, 22; Brittany Dawn Jeffrey, 31; Emily Nowlin, 27, and Aline Espinosa-Villegas, 24 were charged with malicious destruction of property belonging to an entity receiving federal funding, conspiracy to commit those acts and possession of a destructive device.

Homeland Security Warns Of Possible Georgia Violence As Senate Runoff Election Nears.  A field analysis report from the Department of Homeland Security warns of potential violence in Georgia as the two runoff elections for the U.S. Senate near on January 5.  The Georgia run-off elections feature the crucial contests between incumbent GOP senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler and their Democratic challengers, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.  If the GOP retains either one of the seats, the party will maintain control of the Senate; if not, the Democrats will control the Senate, House of Representatives, and the White House as there would be a 50-50 tie in the Senate and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris' vote would break the tie, thus giving president-elect Joe Biden a clear path to implement his agenda.

What are the new SCOTUS justices thinking?  The threat of violence is always present in our country.  That is why we have laws against violence and law enforcement personnel to enforce those laws (at least we have had).  If SCOTUS makes rulings based on the threat of violence, then those who are willing to commit violence are in control, and our laws become inconsequential.  During the past year, we have seen governors and mayors refuse to confront violence and even condone it.  Consequently, it is only by free and fair elections that politicians can be held accountable and, if necessary, removed, so that responsible men and women can take their place.

North Dakota senator's state office vandalized by man with an ax.  Sen. John Hoeven's (R-N.D.) office in Fargo, N.D., was vandalized by a man with an ax.  Video of the vandalism posted on Facebook by the Fargo Police Department shows a man wearing a mask walking up a set of stairs to a door carrying an ax, according to the Grand Forks Herald.  Once he reaches the door, the man smashes the window next to it with the ax and walks away.

Police Finally Swarm Filthy Reincarnated Autonomous Zone in Seattle, It Doesn't End Well for Antifa.  As we previously reported, Antifa had been resurrecting a new "CHAZ" in Seattle, building barricades around Cal Anderson Park.  They were trying to prevent the police and the city from clearing out the park that they and the homeless had been occupying.  It's quite literally a filthy disgusting mess.  They also took over a vacant nearby yellow house and began barricading that up as well.  [Numerous tweets and video clips]

It is no surprise that lawless people are led by other lawless people.
Child sex offender served leadership role at Portland Antifa autonomous zone.  A serial sex offender and Black Lives Matter activist recently released from prison served a titular leadership role at the Antifa autonomous zone in north Portland.  Micah Isaiah Rhodes, 27, was convicted of three counts of second-degree sexual abuse of minors in 2018.  He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison after violating probation by being near children during an Antifa occupation of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility.

Portland News Crew Gets Stalked, Assaulted And Robbed By ANTIFA In New Autonomous Zone.  A gang of militant leftists were caught on video descending upon a Portland TV news reporter and videographer who dared to enter their "autonomous zone" — and they proceeded to bully, physically attack, and force out the news team.  Reporter Genevieve Reaume and videographer Ric Peavyhouse — both with KATU-TV News — on Tuesday [12/8/2020] walked past barricades set up around the foreclosed house on North Mississippi Avenue in an attempt to interview occupiers.

Media Just Dropped Some Interesting Info About the Family 'Fighting Eviction' Behind Portland Autonomous Zone.  We've reported on the new Portland Autonomous Zone that BLM/Antifa people have erected.  They're fighting, they claim, to prevent a family from being evicted from a red house that had been foreclosed on and sold in 2018.  But the people who live there are refusing to leave.  As we previously noted, Antifa has been camping out with them for months, causing all kinds of trouble in the neighborhood, generating a lot of criminal response to the area.  In the past week, Antifa has created an "autonomous zone" called RHAZ, the "Red House Autonomous," that has now taken up several blocks around the house.  They have reportedly been stockpiling weapons and even have armed guards patrolling.

Home of N.J. county sheriff vandalized amid ongoing ICE detainee hunger strike.  The home of Bergen County Sheriff Anthony Cureton was vandalized Tuesday night after someone spray painted the words "Free them all" in black paint on his garage door, authorities said.  Detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office were investigating the incident after they were notified about it Wednesday morning, according to a statement from the office.  The vandalism happened sometime after 9 p.m. Tuesday at Cureton's Englewood home, the office said.

Carnegie Mellon Students Target Ric Grenell with Death Threat.  Former Trump administration official Ric Grenell reportedly received death threats from two students that want Grenell removed from his visiting scholar role at Carnegie Mellon University.  Two female students reportedly discussed their plan to kill Grenell in a since-deleted convers[at]ion on social media.  According to a report by the Washington Examiner, law enforcement officials are investigating a death threat against Richard Grenell, the former Acting Director of National Intelligence under President Trump.

Setting Up a Siege?  Antifa Has Armed Guards, Stockpiled Weapons at Portland Autonomous Zone.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Portland's police chief reported that antifa has fortified barricades, stockpiled weapons, set up armed guards, and threatened to kill police officers.  Both the police chief and the mayor have urged the rebels to lay down their arms, but it appears they are refusing to do so.  "We want a peaceful & safe resolution to the occupation of public space on N Mississippi Ave.  We are greatly concerned about the fortification of barricades, stockpiling of weapons, armed sentries, attacks on journalists & threats to kill officers in graffiti in this public space," Chief Chuck Lovell tweeted on Wednesday.

State representative removed from House committees after alleged threatening video.  A state representative from the Detroit area has been removed from all Michigan House committees after posting a video video perceived as threatening toward Republicans on Facebook.  State Rep. Cynthia Johnson posted the three-minute video Wednesday morning.  She made several remarks in the video about hitting Republicans in the pocketbook.  Johnson ended with statements to President Donald Trump's supporters to "watch out" and called for her "soldiers" to "make them pay."

A Michigan State Representative seems to threaten Trump supporters.  During a live video, Michigan State Rep. Cynthia Johnson gave a rousing speech to her supporters.  It wasn't about going forth and making America a wonderful place, though.  Instead, she gave them chapter and verse about harassing and economically destroying Trump supporters, with strong undertones suggesting actual violence.  The Michigan House disciplined her by stripping her committees, but that was inadequate given what Johnson said.  Johnson had already made something of a name for herself as a thug more than a politician on December 2.  That was when the Michigan House Oversight Committee held hearings for Rudi Giuliani and his many witnesses about the massive amount and variety of fraud that took place in Michigan, especially in Detroit.

Detroit Thug Congresswoman Cynthia A. Johnson Makes Threats Against Trump Supporters, Order Her 'Soldiers' To 'Make Them Pay'.  A sitting Michigan State Representative is facing scrutiny this morning after a video surfaced of the rep. making clear and concise threats against Trump supporters telling supporters to "be careful" and to "wake lightly" while telling her "soldiers" to "make them pay."  [Video clip]

Update:
Democrat Rep Goes On Another Bizarre Rant After Threatening Trump Supporters With Violence.  Yesterday, we told you about how Michigan State Rep Cynthia Johnson declared open season on Trump supporters during a dark, threatening rant.  "So this is just a warning to you Trumpers.  Be careful, walk lightly, we ain't playing with you.  Enough of the shenanigans.  Enough is enough.  And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it.  Do it right, be in order, make them pay," Johnson said on Tuesday night [12/8/2020].  That call to violence eventually led her to being removed from the committee she sat on, which is good news.  However, she wasn't done "making her voice heard".  Now, in a brand new video, Johnson adjusted her words, saying "Soldiers of Christ".  Yeah, right.  "All you soldiers!  Soldiers of Christ... soldiers against RACISM!  Soldiers against misogyny!  SOLDIERS against domestic violence and domestic terrorism.  Soldiers... RISE!  It's time for you to rise," she bizarrely exclaimed, while repeating herself over and over again.  [Video clip]

Portland explodes in violence again as hundreds of protesters attempt to set up an autonomous zone.  Protesters outraged with at least a dozen arrests at a home where a family was removed in September hurled rocks at officers, sprayed a fire extinguisher at them and damaged police vehicles on Tuesday [12/8/2020].  The violence happened in broad daylight, and by evening, Mayor Ted Wheeler sent out a statement saying he was authorizing Portland Police 'to use all lawful means to end the illegal occupation ... There will be no autonomous zone in Portland.'  'It's time for the encampment and occupation to end,' Wheeler said in a statement that also acknowledged the issues the protesters want to fix, such as housing and health care.

Media Don't Want You to Know About Alleged Shooting Attack on Trump Supporters.  A South Carolina prosecutor says a 23-year-old man shot into a crowd of Trump supporters in late August.  And — surprise, surprise — this is something our useless national media don't want anyone to know about.  Of course the corporate media don't want you to know.  What do you expect from a media that ask you to believe that when the terrorists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa loot and burn and assault, the looting and burning and assaulting is "mostly peaceful."  The corporate media lie to protect left-wing terrorists, lie to smear Trump supporters, and hide inconvenient truths such as this one.  And that's why New Media is here.  Not so much to complain about the corporate media.  That's a waste of time.  But to report actual news that matters, such as this story, which the Washington Examiner found in a local newspaper.

Nothing to See Here, Just an Idiot Throwing an Explosive Into a Trump Supporter's Home.  A Detroit-area man and his girlfriend were kicking back at home on Saturday night, nothing out of the ordinary going on — except for the explosive thrown into his home, that is.  The homeowner, who has chosen to remain unidentified for safety reasons, told WDIV-TV he thinks he was targeted because he is an "avid supporter" of President Trump.  [Video clip]

Antifa-Linked Washington State Democrat Field Organizer Faces Terrorism Charges For Attack On Railway.  Has anyone else noticed that there sure is a lot of overlap between Antifa activists and prominent Democrats? [...] They're all playing on the same team.  This time, the subset of Antifa that was in play is an 'anti-colonialist' group going by the name of 'It's Going Down'.  This group has claimed responsibility for either some or all of the 41 attacks against railways in Washington State.

Gen. Flynn:  Election Witness in ICU, Other Witnesses Had Tires Slashed, House Broken Into Twice.  Former National Security Advisor to President Trump Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (U.S. Army ret.) spoke on Thursday about the price being paid by Americans speaking out about fraud and irregularities in the recent presidential election, saying that one was hospitalized in the intensive care unit while others have had tires slashed, their home broken into twice or been forced to move.

Georgia election official calls out Republican silence as threats of violence against government employees rise.  Gabriel Sterling has had enough.  The Voting Implementation Manager for Georgia, Sterling opened a press briefing today with a two-minute entreaty to outgoing president Donald Trump and Republican Senators to tone down their rhetoric and condemn the violence and threats being made toward election workers, Politico reports.  "Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language," he said.  "Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions.  This has to stop.  We need you to step up.  And if you're going to take a position of leadership, show some."

Sidney Powell:  Witness in Hospital After Beating.  Attorney Sidney Powell said on the Sean Hannity show on Fox News Monday night that a witness to election irregularities was beaten up and is in the hospital.  Powell spoke about the attack while speaking about witnesses needing protection as a reason some are not going public and signing affidavits.  Powell said some are in the government, others are in roles that require confidentiality, and that they need protection by the government.

Keith Olbermann says out loud what the fascist left is thinking.  Keith Olbermann never had much of a filter to begin with, and the loss of his former cable news platform seems to have unleashed his id even more than before.  Here he is on his YouTube platform, captured in a tweet by Ian Miles Cheong, laying out his desire for a totalitarian police state in which Donald Trump and his supporters, "flunkies," and "apologists" (by which he must mean me among many others) are imprisoned in such numbers that vast new prisons are necessary.  [Video clip - language warning.]  Don't expect Joe Biden or any other Democrat to be asked to comment by the media.  Don't hold your breath waiting for condemnation from anyone on the left.

Group breaks windows, tags SE Portland businesses with graffiti.  Police made three arrests early Thursday morning after a group of people walked through Southeast Portland, breaking windows and tagging businesses with graffiti, according to police.  At least 10 businesses, including grocery stores, banks, an auto service center, a package distribution and mailing center and local business storefronts were damaged, police said.  Police received multiple reports after 1 a.m. that a group of people, all dressed in black clothing, were walking down Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard and breaking windows as they went.  Officers responded and found a group near Southeast 37th Avenue and Harrison Street that matched the description provided by callers.

Police arrest 3 people after at least 10 businesses vandalized along SE Hawthorne.  Several businesses in southeast Portland were damaged during the early morning hours of Thanksgiving by a group dressed in black clothing, police said.  At around 1:22 a.m., Portland police responded to reports of people breaking windows and spraying graffiti at the New Seasons Market in the 4000 block of Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard.  According to police, multiple 911 callers said they saw a group dressed in black clothing walking west along SE Hawthorne, smashing windows in their path.

Chaos and Anarchy in DC.  In case you missed it, over the weekend tens of thousands of protesters marched in the District of Columbia to voice their support of the president and opposition to voter fraud.  The "Million MAGA March," held Saturday afternoon, was a peaceful event.  But as the sun went down and the pro-Trump demonstrators left the protest, violent agitators and counterprotesters emerged and descended upon them to harass and, in many cases, to commit violence.  [Seven video clips]  Police arrested 21 people in connection to the violence, according to NBC Washington.  NBC Washington described some of the various charges of the suspects in this maelstrom, which included disorderly conduct and assault.  Though many local outlets covered these incidents extensively, the story gathered little attention from national media.  One would think that widespread violent attacks on peaceful protesters expressing their First Amendment rights would elicit a strong response from journalists.  But coverage was both lukewarm and deceptive, portraying the incident as if it was Trump supporters who were the originators of the violent behavior.

Florida Dem Arrested for Threatening to Shoot GOP Politicians.  A Florida Democrat has been arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot the state's governor Ron DeSantis, as well as Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, all of whom are Republicans, Fox News reported on Wednesday[.]  Karen Jones was arrested in her Palm Beach County home by police over the weekend on three counts of written threats to kill or do bodily harm after she allegedly sent a tweet stating that "DeSantis, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio are looting my state.  Imma shot them."  Jones admitted to the policemen arresting her that she wrote the tweet, but said it was a joke, the Miami Herald reported.

Why Won't Joe Biden Condemn Antifa and BLM by Name for Attacking Trump Supporters?  On Saturday [11/14/2020], many thousands of President Trump's supporters came to Washington, D.C.  But Joe Biden, who fancies himself the president-elect who will "heal" this nation, was M.I.A. after antifa and BLM attacked peaceful "Million MAGA March" ralliers.  [Video clip]  And no Democrats condemned the violence, not even Joe Biden.  "Today, one week after Biden called for unity and his supporters took to the streets to celebrate his media-projected win, Trump supporters were attacked in our nation's capital by far-left protesters and Antifa," noted Breitbart contributor Kyle Morris.  "Not one Democrat member of Congress has denounced today's violence."

Kenneth Wayne Deberry
Rioter who punched out Trump supporter in viral video is registered child sex offender.  A protestor who was arrested after he punched a supporter of President Donald Trump is also a registered child sex offender, public records show.  The Metropolitan Police Department arrested 39-year-old Kenneth Wayne Deberry on Saturday [11/14/2020] for disorderly conduct, including inciting violence, aggravated assault, and felon in possession of a firearm after police found he was carrying a handgun, according to an MPD press release.  According to the MPD Sex Offender Registry, Deberry is a registered sex offender who was convicted in Washington, D.C. in 2008 of second degree child sexual abuse against a person under 16 years of age.


BLM Goons Assault Elderly Trump Supporter, Spit On Him Steal His Bike.  The man was pushed and fell hard to the ground, then spit on, and finally, had his bike stolen.  [Video clip]

Even Elderly Trump Supporters Weren't Safe From The Leftist Goon Squad.  Downtown Washington DC devolved into a banana republic as peaceful Trump supporters who descended on the city to celebrate with the Million MAGA March were harassed, assaulted, terrorized, and some even seriously injured by BLM and ANTIFA thugs.  Even the elderly weren't safe.  [Video clip]

Left-wing rioters are no longer news.
Lefties attack MAGA marchers in DC — and the media shrug.  If counter-protesters had triggered fighting across Washington, DC, in the wake of the January 2017 Women's March, the media would have erupted in fury.  Yet the morning after Antifa types went after MAGA marchers in the nation's capital, the press obsessed about ... Kayleigh McEnany's estimate of the crowd size.  The difference, plainly, is that no one felt the need to confront the anti-Trump marchers.  But a significant element of the left seized the opportunity to harass and even assault the pro-Trump crowd.

Female Attacked And Robbed by Mob.  Crowds are now attacking people at random in BLM Plaza.  [Video clip]

Where's all the rhetoric about healing and unity, Joe?
Biden Called Out For Silence As Leftists Attack Pro-Trump Demonstrators In Nation's Capital.  Democrat Joe Biden was called out on Saturday for his silence as left-wing extremists that journalists identified as being affiliated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa attacked pro-Trump demonstrators in Washington, D.C., who had gathered to show their support for President Donald Trump.  Various public figures called out Biden after he repeatedly campaigned on "unity" and "healing" America.  The Democratic Party tweeted on Saturday that Biden would "restore the soul of this nation and bring us together."  Most of the violence happened at night after the majority of Trump supporters had left the area after the "Million MAGA March," which featured a brief appearance by the president.  Later in the night, members of a purported right-wing group went after some of the groups that reportedly attacked innocent people.

#Antifa and #Black Lives Matter Are Evil.  Today the Million MAGA March took place in Washington, D.C. to support President Trump as he fights for honest election returns.  Predictably, activists/communists/criminals from Antifa and BLM — the groups no longer seem to be distinct — turned out to make trouble.  They attacked the Trump supporters; you can see a number of videos at ZeroHedge:  "BLM/Antifa Thugs Attack Trump Supporters, Including Children, After D.C. 'Million MAGA March.'"  Here, you see Antifa/BLM thugs attacking a Trump-supporting family.  They knock a little girl to the pavement:  [Video clip]  These leftists are simply evil people.  It is easy to understand why they want to defund the police:  if we had adequate law enforcement in America's cities, they would be in jail where they belong.

Violence erupts in D.C. at the 'Million MAGA March' with counter protesters throwing fireworks at Trump supporters in a restaurant.  President Trump called on cops to 'do your job' as he blasted counter protesters who turned up at the Million MAGA March as 'Antifa scum' as he joked that they 'ran for this hills' after violent scenes erupted in Washington D.C. on Saturday night.  The president claimed 'Antifa' had waited until the end of the march to attack 'elderly people and families' as he praised his supporters who 'aggressively fought back'.  'Antifa SCUM ran for the hills today when they tried attacking the people at the Trump Rally, because those people aggressively fought back,' he tweeted.

Antifa Accosts Women, Children, Elderly, and Restaurant-Goers After MAGA March.  Antifa and BLM wasted no time in accosting women, children, families, and the elderly as they walked down Washington, DC, streets after the Million MAGA March on Saturday.  Protesters threw large fireworks and projectiles at restaurant-goers eating outside and flashed laser lights into hotel rooms.  DC Metropolitan Police blocked off BLM Plaza so Million MAGA March attendees could not go through.  Trump supporters had to walk through a gauntlet of BLM, Antifa, and black bloc assailants in order to leave the area.

Protesters Stomp on Trump Supporter's Head After D.C. Rally.  A group of leftist protesters attacked numerous Trump supporters who had finished taking part in a rally on the streets of Washington, DC, on Saturday.  In one of the most graphic attacks, a man who tried to fight off an attack is hit from behind while at least two women kick and stomp his head.  Several videos captured numerous attacks by protesters that were chasing Trump supporters out of the rally area as the group made their way to their vehicles.  Earlier in the day, thousands of Trump supporters had gathered in D.C. for a rally supporting U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  Violence broke out as the rally ended and people attempted to leave.

The Fury of the Fatherless.  The frenzy that has been enacted in city after American city since May 2020 demands more scrutiny than it has yet received. [...] According to the first thorough examination of the street protests triggered by the death of George Floyd, undertaken by Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project in conjunction with the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton, more than 10,600 incidents of what is benignly called "unrest" were recorded between May 24 and August 22.  Of these, some 570 involved violence.  Of those, most have involved Black Lives Matter activists.  Preliminary insurance estimates show that the damage will surpass the $1.2 billion in damages accrued during the 1992 Rodney King riots.  And then there are the atmospherics that separate these protests from many that have gone before:  lusty screaming, ecstatic vandalism, the menacing of bystanders.  The ritualistic exhibition of destructive behaviors in city after city is without precedent in America.  Neither the civil rights demonstrations nor the protests against the war in Vietnam looked remotely like this.  The differences demand explanation.

We'd planned to live here our whole life.  Thanks to Democrat policies, we're moving.  [Scroll down]  Then, in May, a guy took a fatal overdose of multiple drugs, tried to pass a counterfeit 20, and died in the custody of the arresting officers.  Opportunity had knocked.  The "free press" jumped on that one, and before the sun set — and for days and days up to this very day — the Dems and the Republicans, too, in all their public comments have spoken of this event as if it were a given that the poor drugged guy trying to pass a funny 20 had been murdered by the Minneapolis police.  Never mind that the procedures the police used were part of their training.  Never mind that the autopsy said the poor guy was as good as dead before he was taken into custody.  In reaction, the "mostly peaceful" rioters burned down a swath through Minneapolis that is five miles long and extended that into St.  Paul for another three miles.  It turned out that the "mostly peaceful" rioters who were burning and looting and murdering are the foot soldiers of the Dems.  Throughout the riots, the governor and attorney general of Minnesota and the mayor of Minneapolis acted on the side of these "mostly peaceful" rioters.

Voting for Joe Biden Won't Save You From the Mob.  The poor fellow in this video probably voted for Joe Biden to end all the national drama, along with other reasons.  But on election night, BLM activists showed up in his neighborhood with drums, flashing lights, bullhorns, and obscenities.  The national drama not only failed to end, it showed up on his lawn and called him a "white supremacist" when he stood on his porch and asked them to be peaceful.  [Video clip]

Extortion Day.  In the days preceding last week's election, the downtown corridors of many American cities resembled coastal hurricane zones.  Business owners boarded up their stores, fearing that the election might unleash another wave of destructive rioting.  In Washington, D.C., luxury shops and office complexes constructed fortifications with boards, chains, fences, and barriers.  In the neighborhood surrounding the White House, the Secret Service, laborers, and left-wing protesters all prepared for Election Night.  Then something miraculous happened.  The following morning, as the election returns began to favor former vice president Joe Biden, the fences, boards, and chains came down.  Small business owners reopened their shops, and the anticipation of violence evaporated.  The national media, which had been stoking fears about Proud Boys and white supremacists flooding the cities with political violence, simply dropped the story — as if it had never been a story.

Gov. DeSantis Introduces 'Anti-Mob' Legislation To Allow Floridians To Shoot Rioters And Looters.  Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has proposed an "anti-mob" bill that would allow residents to shoot rioters and looters who target businesses following nationwide unrest.  The law would expand the state's self-defense law, which currently forbids "the use of force in defense of property," by increasing what constitutes a "forcible felony," according to the Miami Herald.  DeSantis seeks to make looting or "interruption or impairment" of a business such a felony, thereby justifying deadly force to prevent it, the local outlet reported.

Big mistake:
Target reopens E. Lake Street store heavily damaged in riots.  The Target store on E. Lake Street in Minneapolis reopens Wednesday [11/11/2020] for the first time since shutting down in May following riots that destroyed the business and many others along the normally bustling commercial corridor.  The multimillion dollar reopening restores some normalcy to a community hard hit by the civil unrest that broke out all along Lake Street in the wake of George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police.  Target workers early Tuesday were busy nestling melons and bananas into place, adjusting lights, installing the last ceiling tiles and monitoring several newly expanded departments in advance of a limited soft opening later in the day before an official reopening Wednesday.

The Editor says...
[#1]  George Floyd was already dying of a drug overdose before the cops arrived, so it is misleading to say that he died "at the hands of Minneapolis police."  [#2] The entire cost of cleanup and restocking will be passed on to the customers.  Likewise, the costs reimbursed by insurance companies will be passed on to their customers.  [#3] Everything gained by this store's reopening will be lost in the next riot, and if Target rebuilds it again, that's a sign of mismanagement at the highest levels of the company.  In my opinion, the looted Target store should be left in place, with all merchandise and fixtures removed, roped off but still visible, to remind the neighborhood residents of what they've done, or what was done to them.  If you want to live in poverty and squalor, keep voting for Democrats.

Bill creating new charges to combat rioting, looting introduced by State Reps.  A bill aimed at creating new criminal charges to combat rioting, looting, and violence in Ohio has been introduced by State Representatives Sara Carruthers (R-Hamilton) and Cindy Abrams (R-Harrison).  House Bill 784 creates a new Riot Assault charge for a person who participates in an aggravated riot and causes physical harm that is punishable by a fifth-degree felony, according to the release from the Ohio House of Representatives.  The Riot Assault charge would be a fourth-degree felony if the assault is against a peace officer, the release reads.  It would be charged as a third-degree felony if the peace officer suffers serious physical harm, HB 784 states.  Peace officers would also be able to file civil suits against those responsible, the Ohio House of Representatives' bill says.

Hate Filled Monster:  Man Drives Car Into Trump Rally.  A Santa Maria man was arrested Sunday [11/8/2020] after driving his vehicle into a Trump parade, causing a rollover crash and two injuries.  Santa Maria police said the Trump rally was traveling westbound down Stowell Road around 2:10 p.m.  At the same time, a 20-year-old Santa Maria man was driving eastbound on Stowell when he made a U-turn and caught up with the rally, gesturing and shouting aggressively at participating vehicles.  Officers said the man even threw bottles and other objects at drivers as he passed.  [Video clip - language warning, as usual.]

Biden target of profane graffiti in Portland, as crowd smashes windows at Democratic campaign office.  Portland demonstrators identifying themselves as Antifa targeted a Democratic campaign office Sunday [11/8/2020], shattering windows and spray-painting messages like "[...]" and "no presidents" on the building.  A group of people met in Laurelhurst Park Sunday evening [11/8/2020] before marching north and gathering in front of the Multnomah County Democrats building located in the 3500 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard.  Several members of the group began to tag the office with graffiti and broke out several of the building's windows, the Portland Police Bureau said in a press release.  Police released several photos showing the damage.

Nineteen people arrested in protest march from Stonewall Inn through Lower Manhattan.  Nineteen people were arrested during a Thursday night [11/5/2020] protest march from the Stonewall Inn through Lower Manhattan, including a man that tried to wrap a heavy metal chain around a cop's neck, the NYPD said.  Cops rounded up 13 men and six women during the tense clash where bicycle officers tried to corral demonstrators onto the sidewalk and into Union Square Park.  Ten people received desk appearance tickets for a variety of misdemeanor crimes, meaning they will have to answer the charges in court at a later date.  Another eight people received summonses.

Portland commissioner opposes $18M in police cuts, has home targeted by protesters.  The home of a Portland, Ore., city commissioner was targeted by protesters this week over his refusal to support $18 million in cuts to the police budget.  A group of around 60 people marched in the rain Thursday from Arbor Lodge Park to Commissioner Dan Ryan's home.  Once there, they smashed a window, broke a flower pot and threw burning flares and paint-filled balloons at the home, authorities said.  Dozens of state troopers and Multnomah County sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene and ordered the group to leave.  No one was arrested.  It was the fourth night this week that protesters had descended on Ryan's home, the sheriff's office said.

Finally, After Election, Oregon Dem Gov Asks For National Guard To Stop Portland Rioters.  On Wednesday night [11/4/2020], after months of violent rioting in the city of Portland, Democratic Oregon Governor Kate Brown finally ordered the National Guard to go to Portland.  Brown had directed the National Guard to be on standby on Monday.  The Multnomah County Sheriff announced the move on Twitter and explained the rationale: [...]

More than 600 arrested during anti-Trump march on I-94 in Minneapolis.  Law enforcement officials arrested more than 600 people after protesters blocked Interstate 94 in Minneapolis late Wednesday [11/4/2020] and early Thursday.  The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) said the arrests by State Patrol troopers and city police were necessary to clear the interstate of a people who stopped freeway traffic.  "No force or chemicals were used, and no protesters or law enforcement officers were injured during the incident," the DPS said in a statement issued Thursday.  Marchers gathered early Wednesday evening for a protest, led by multiple local organizations, dubbed "Don't Let Trump Steal the Election." Marchers went from downtown streets to I-94, where they caused closure of the freeway from Interstate 35W east to Hwy. 280.  The interstate was cleared and reopened at 1:23 a.m.  Thursday, the DPS said.

Police, protesters clash in NYC as demonstration turns chaotic.  Police clashed with an unruly mob of protesters in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday night as demonstrators created carnage, set a fire in the street and one even spat directly in the face of an officer.  The confrontations resulted in the arrests of 60 people after a peaceful protest in Washington Square Park took a violent turn once demonstrators worked their way through the West Village after 7:30 p.m.  Earlier chants of "Count the vote" were replaced with anti-police sentiments, inexplicable outbursts at outdoor diners and the setting of rubbish fires.

'Anarchist' Florida woman arrested for destroying Trump campaign signs, says she 'snapped'.  Florida authorities arrested a woman who identified herself as an "anarchist" after she damaged Trump campaign signs on private property.  A Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputy was on patrol along the Palm Coast Parkway on Saturday [10/31/2020] when he saw a woman trying to destroy the signs.  The woman told the deputy that she was "tired of the lies," the sheriff's office said in a statement on Facebook.  The woman identified herself as Tonya McRae, 42, after the deputy told her it was illegal to provide a false name, which she initially provided.

74 Times Leftist Protesters Engaged in Violence, Destruction, or Intimidation — In Past 30 Days.  Left-wing protests and riots created chaos in the lead-up to Election Day 2020.  Below are 74 incidents of violent protests, riots, intimidation, and acts of anarchy carried out by leftists. [...]

Radical left groups are already plotting a coup.  A new website is leaking internal documents, images, and videos from radical left groups and people working inside the federal government planning a coup if President Trump wins re-election.  The only way to defeat these people and their ideology is for Trump to have an overwhelming victory that establishes his mandate to restore America's constitutional order.

Leaked Video From Zoom Chat Exposes The Coming Insurrection By BLM And Sunrise Movement After Election.  Leaked Zoom video featuring individuals from Black Lives Matter and The Sunrise Movement, a far left-wing, Marxist organization, reveals the plan to take to the streets and try to force president trump from office.  Members on the Zoom call openly discuss how they will work together with federal employees, the intelligence community, the media, and Democrat members.  [Video clip]

As Businesses Board Up Nationwide, Why Aren't the Democrats Hanging Their Heads In Shame?  [Scroll down]  The point of this piece is to ask Democrats to take their own inventory.  Think about it.  Businesses in cities across the U.S. are presently boarding up.  They are as a precautionary measure against post-election rioting and looting.  About these precautions, does anyone seriously think cities known for a Republican lean will be battered if Joe Biden wins?  What about Democrat-leaning cities?  Assuming Biden wins, does anyone seriously think Republicans will wantonly break windows and loot in cities known to be majority Democrat?  Oh come on, the question answers itself.  And while it's possible there will be rioting assuming a Biden victory, would anyone bet me that those throwing rocks and stealing will be registered Republicans?  This question also answers itself.

Boots On The Ground In Philly.  National Guard troops arrive in Philadelphia.  Outstanding!  [Video clip]

Antifa gearing up for false flag violence disguised as Trump supporters.  With merchants in Democrat-run cities boarding up their storefront windows, the possibility of serious urban violence is well understood.  As horrific as that could get (ask anyone who lives in Minneapolis), the progressive fascists appear to have a plan in place to make it even worse: disguising their rioters as Trump-supporters in order to make the case that Donald Trump truly is a dictator that must be violently overthrown if he wins or arrested and prosecuted if he loses.

Will Election Day 2020 Go Down In History As Riot Night Of The Century?  When the Republicans took both chambers of Congress in the historic 1994 elections, ABC news anchor Peter Jennings said "the voters had a temper tantrum." He felt it necessary to portray GOP voters as children.  But they did it the right way.  If Americans want change, and feel the need to act up, the ballot box is the place to do it.  Democratic comrades, however, have decided that violence how they are going to get their way.  What we've already had plenty of is likely to erupt even more violently tonight and Wednesday morning, and continue for some time.  The political left is determined it will win the elections, even if winning means more fighting in the streets.

Portland BLM protesters armed with Molotov cocktails run riot on Election Eve, torching a Starbucks.  Protests in Portland continued on Monday as BLM demonstrators destroyed a Starbucks and clashed with police, amid fears that further violence could be sparked by the election.  At least two people were arrested amid the violence during which windows at Portland State University's public safety office were smashed.  Protesters also threw a flammable liquid inside the Starbucks, whose walls were graffitied with 'BLM' and 'ACAB', [...]

Trump puts potential rioters and looters on notice:  You will be 'prosecuted to the fullest degree'.  During one of his final pre-Election Day rallies Monday evening, President Donald Trump warned "Biden's far-left supporters" that federal justice awaits them if they choose to "loot and riot" either during or after Tuesday's pivotal election.  He issued the remarks from Kenosha, Wisconsin, where in August violent riots by Black Lives Matter extremists erupted following the non-fatal police shooting of a black suspect who'd had an open warrant for felony sexual assault, among other charges.

All that plywood tells you the real post-election fear is pro-Biden rioting.  There is one clear leading indicator pointing to Donald Trump still having a chance to win the election — stores around America are fortifying themselves in anticipation of election-related violence.  Businesses in cities like New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and Chicago are boarding up as if a Category 5 hurricane is bearing down.  Everyone tends to be coy about the reason why.  The cops in Beverly Hills worry about "protest activity."  Tiffany refers to "potential election-related activity."  Saks Fifth Avenue says it's taking precautions "in the event of civil unrest due to the current election."

Election Day riots — how did we get here?  There's plenty of blame to go around.  Driving around Washington, D.C. a couple days ago was a shocking experience.  Block after block of businesses are boarded up and anything throwable or movable has been removed from the streets.  In the meantime, faculty, staff, and students at George Washington University (where I teach) have been told to stockpile medicine and food "as you normally would for a hurricane or a snowstorm."  The reason?  We are about to have a democratic election.  The expectation is that is, unless it is a landslide for Biden, there will be rioting and arson in Washington and other cities.  When exactly did election rioting become as forecastable as inclement weather?

This Week in Leftist Violence and Intimidation Vol. 10.  This week Portland continued to be a battleground between federal agents and Antifa militants, protesters in Brooklyn called for "death to America," and Philadelphia saw mass looting as well as the destruction of an immigrant church.  [Several video clips]

Here's What Police Are Doing Ahead Of Possible Election Unrest.  Police departments are set to cancel days off, prepare tactical response teams and gather intelligence about possible election unrest as Nov. 3 quickly approaches, according to two police union officials.  The New York City Police Department (NYPD) on Oct. 24 told businesses within the boroughs to prepare for possible political violence, The Wall Street Journal reported Oct. 24.  The department has reportedly been preparing for weeks to keep the city secure in the event of election-induced calamity.  Miami, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Orlando, Chicago and other major cities have also reported prepping for possible violence, according to Fox News.

White House Lockdown:  Non-Scalable Fence Being Built to Protect Trump During Election Day Unrest, 250 National Guard on Standby.  Federal agents are set to begin building a non-scalable fence around the White House, Ellipse and Lafayette Square and 250 National Guardsman have been placed on standby to protect President Donald Trump during any election day unrest.  Major riots and destruction have been promised by leftist extremists should President Trump win reelection.

Summarizing Joe Biden.  [Scroll down]  Biden has generically condemned the violent riots that have engulfed cities such as Portland and Seattle for months.  But he has never called for the riots to be put down and order restored.  Nor has he condemned the Democratic governors and mayors who let the riots continue for months.  He and Kamala Harris (who tweeted in favor of a Minnesota group that was posting bail for rioters) don't side with those who want the law enforced and order restored.

Conflict Expert on Possible Trump Win:  Thousands Could 'Storm White House'.  J. Michael Waller, an expert on strategic communication and unconventional conflict and vice president for government relations at the Center for Security Policy, said at a webinar with reporters on Wednesday that federal officials should be prepared for violent mobs on the streets of Washington, DC, that could attempt to attack the White House if President Donald Trump is victorious in winning a second term.  "We have to prepare for these mobs by the tens of thousands if not more right in downtown Washington, DC ... and storm the White House," Waller said.

All of the cities where Election Day rioting is expected have one thing in common:  They're run by Democrats.  The next time a cable news anchor mentions the perpetual "growing threat of right-wing violence in America" (which, for some reason, never becomes much more than a "threat"), I'd like them to also name the list of cities preparing for mass rioting on Election Day.  Here's a hint:  None of them voted for President Trump in 2016.  CNN earlier this month reported that "police department leaders in cities from Baltimore to Seattle and Portland ... have prohibited officers from taking days off around the election."  Bloomberg reported likewise that "Chicago, Philadelphia and New York are among cities that have revealed plans to prevent violence on Nov. 3, when election observers worry polling sites could be targeted, or in the weeks that follow if historic levels of mail-in ballots preclude the declaration of an immediate winner."

Will Halloween Last for Weeks?  It's the night before Halloween and all through the District of Columbia, plywood is being placed on shop and bank windows.  Not because people fear rampaging trick or treaters but because in a few days we will have our national election and those who don't think they'll like the results are preparing mayhem again.  If local businesses believed polls saying Biden has it in the bag, I doubt they'd be doing this.  I suppose you might argue they fear joyful riots because Biden won.  I think it more likely the senescent Biden will lose and the businesses here fear a continuation of the left's bullying and temper tantrums.  Indeed, on a stupid pretext (as usual) the riots have already begun here with 14 injured policemen and more damaged businesses, businesses already reeling from the consequences of our blinkered mayor's lockdowns.  There are many demonstrations planned for the nation's capital in the coming week.

Rioters Move from Businesses to Residential Streets in Portland.  Rioters quickly moved from a business district in northeast Portland onto residential streets after police declared a riot condition.  Anti-capitalist, anti-police rioters marched through a neighborhood overturning trashcans and shouting at residents.  Rioters took to the streets of a northeast Portland business district and began vandalizing the windows of companies, Breitbart News reported Saturday night.  Portland Police Burear officials quickly declared the demonstration dubbed "Capitalism is Scary" to be a riot and ordered their immediate dispersal.

Portland ANTIFA Invade Vancouver Wash, Assault Diners And People Trying To Enjoy A Night Out.  A "large mob of BLM-antifa from Portland are marching through Vancouver, Wash," journalist Andy Ngô tweeted.  "They've attacked bar patrons on the way & confronted people at their homes."  [Video clip]

D.C. university warns students to stockpile 'a week of food' ahead of potential election unrest.  A major university just blocks away from the White House on Friday warned students to prepare for potential civil unrest on Election Day by stockpiling a week's worth of food and medicine.  George Washington University distributed a preparedness message to both on- and off-campus students, faculty and staff.  The message recommended that they prepare for Election Day as they would "a hurricane or snowstorm that would prevent you from going outside for several days."  The message cautions students to think about how much food they typically eat in a day and plan for a supply to last them a week.  University officials recommended students stock up on foods that have long shelf life including rice, pasta, canned fruits and nuts[.]

BLM and ANTIFA Thugs Smash Businesses' Windows, Destroy Property Until They Get To THis Well-Armed Bail-Bondsmen.  Notice how these fascists come to a complete standstill once they come face to face with some deadly weaponry during a night of wilding in Vancouver Washington.  Don't even mess with bail-bondsmen, they are used to dealing with thugs.  [Video clip]

Watch A Philly Looter Gets Back To Her Car To Find It Looted.  This was the moment a Philadelphia looter got back to her car just find it was plundered as well.  [Video clip]

Korean American business owners, among hardest hit by looters, feel victimized and alone.  For many of the nearly 100 beauty supply stores in Philadelphia, it was another rough week.  From Monday [10/26/2020] to Wednesday, thieves and vandals broke into at least 17 stores, making off with merchandise and even store fixtures.  The losses were in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.  In some cases, thieves struck again at shops that were damaged previously during a more widespread outbreak of looting that flared in May after police in Minneapolis killed a man there.  The damage and theft this week erupted after news broke Monday of how police had shot and killed Walter Wallace Jr. in West Philadelphia.

How to survive the riots if President Trump is re-elected.  Lunatics under the best of conditions, liberals and leftists have already promised mostly peaceful rioting and socially-just attacks on Trump supporters if the Donald prevails.  So, if you don't want your home or business burned to the ground with you in it simply because Trump won, there are several steps you must take now.  Like bulls, libs are enraged by the color red.  So now is the time to put away all your red Trump signs and paraphernalia, not to mention anything red like, say, a St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap.  Let's face it, the 2020 electoral cake is already baked; leaving that Trump sign on your lawn won't change any minds.  But it will make your home an easy target for anarchists, arsonists and Antifarians.

Chicago unveils Election Day security plan spanning 10 days.  Chicago city leaders unveiled a 10-day Election Day preparedness plan Friday, after a summer of unrest, surges in violent crime and lockdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic.  Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the city had been planning since the late summer, which she said was at times "humbling" but also "instructive."  "We've been focused on two issues when it comes to Election Day," Lightfoot told reporters.  "First is election integrity.  The second, of course, is public safety."

Be Prepared for Democrat-Sponsored Street Violence on Election Night.  A new USA Today poll finds that 75% of the American people are concerned about post-election street violence. [...] Business owners in the central districts of Washington, DC, New York City, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and pretty much every other violent, Democrat-run city in America are boarding up their windows and taking other measure to protect their property as if a Category 3 hurricane were bearing down on them.  Because guess what?  That is essentially what is about to happen to them.  The scenes of rioting and looting out of Philadelphia this week were just previews of coming attractions.

Roots of Antifa:  This 'Idea' Has Violent Consequences.  As riots and looting consumed Philadelphia this week after a fatal police shooting, a radical left-wing group, the "Philly Socialists," began monitoring police scanners and relaying information to help protesters evade arrest.  At one point, the Philly Socialists tweeted out a clue as to their street allegiances:  "Do humanity a favor and learn what antifa stands for."  The scene in Philadelphia was similar to scores of violent protests around the country since May, which have often featured a common and shadowy element — black-masked men and women who seemed as intent on breaking windows and confronting the police as chanting social justice slogans.

Here's What People In DC Think Will Happen If Trump Gets Reelected.  The Daily Caller News Foundation spoke with people on the streets of Washington, D.C. about what they think will happen if President Donald Trump is re-elected in next week's presidential election.  Some Washington D.C. business owners have boarded up store entrances in preparation of possible unrest around the election, various videos show.  Protests and violent demonstrations have been ongoing in the U.S. since George Floyd's death in police custody in May and some residents expressed concern that the unrest could carry over into election-related chaos if Trump wins.

The Editor says...
Any post-election rioting will not be Trump's fault.

Philly Police Ordered To Not Arrest Looters.  As John pointed out yesterday [10/28/2020], the Mayor of Philadelphia imposed a curfew last night in an attempt to quell the ongoing rioting and looting.  Shockingly, many of the people who were already in the process of breaking any number of laws didn't follow his orders and set out to continue the mayhem. [...] So why would the looters continue emptying the shelves of all the city's stores after they'd been put on notice by the municipal government?  Perhaps it's because they'd heard that the cops had been ordered not to arrest any looters.  Yes, you heard that correctly.  The cops were told to simply "disperse" the looters and not take them into custody.  This comes from one of the local Fox News reporters who heard it directly from multiple police sources.

Philadelphia truck bomb:  Is Antifa escalating its war on America?  Against a backdrop of Antifa/Black Lives Matter rioting in Philadelphia, police found what looks like a truck bomb, an abandoned truck left in the middle of the street loaded with explosives, which, if they had gone off, could have been disastrous. [...] If it is what it looks like, it signals that the domestic terrorists' war on America is going to a newer and much more dangerous level.  A working analysis suggests that up until now, they've contented themselves with burning and looting shops, creating big fires, assaulting cops and the elderly, and terrorizing outdoor diners.  It may be that the impact of that has worn off, and nobody's paying as much attention now.  And with an election on, some Democratic pols suddenly are tut-tutting their looting and violence.  So to stay scary and relevant, they're taking it to a sickening new Weather Underground-style level with truck bombs.

Win or lose, Dems have big plans for America.  Only a victory large enough to preclude the theft of the presidency by the Democrats and their minions in the media can forestall their plans for America's future. [...] The Democrats already have a plan in place to flood the streets with "mostly peaceful" riots before, during, and after November 3.  A Trump landslide will open Americans' eyes to the left's usurpation of the nation and perhaps provoke action.  To expedite post-election thievery, riots will again become endemic.  Every judge that might rule against the Democrats' lawfare efforts to steal the presidency will be doxed and confronted.  Their families will be terrorized in their homes.  Special care will be taken to threaten members of the Supreme Court.  Leftist agents will confront congressmen and senators at their homes, offices, and out in public with their families.  If need be, they will block them from returning to Washington D.C. and resuming the functions of government.  The same will be done to governors and mayors, lest they try to use the National Guard to regain control.

The Proper Way to Deal with the Not-So-Peaceful Parts of Mostly Peaceful Protests™.  We already know that District Attorney Larry Krasner (D-Philadelphia) hates the police and will not seriously prosecute #BlackLivesMatter protesters who break the law and destroy property, so, to do the right thing, unfortunately, requires that the feds take action.  It's a good thing it was Donald Trump and not Hillary Clinton appointing United States Attorneys! [...] The Usual Suspects complained about the timing, just a few days prior to the presidential election, and during the Mostly Peaceful Protests™ over the killing of Walter Wallace, Jr, by two Philadelphia police officers as he approached them with a knife that he refused to drop.

Leftists Are Physically Attacking Trump Supporters Just Like They Did in 2016.  In the months before the 2016 election, Trump supporters were repeatedly physically attacked by members of the left, out in the open, sometimes as they left Trump rallies.  In 2020, we are seeing a repeat of this behavior as most of the media looks the other way, just as they did four years ago.  [Video clips]  The liberal media ignores stories like these while suggesting that Trump rallies are hate events and that his supporters are bigots.  Meanwhile, Trump is repeatedly asked to condemn white supremacy while Joe Biden is never asked to denounce Antifa.

Whitmer kidnap plotter also wanted to hang Trump, other politicians, FBI says.  A Delaware man accused of plotting to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also threatened to hang President Donald Trump and posted a hit list on Facebook targeting other elected leaders, including former President Barack Obama, according to an unsealed search warrant affidavit obtained by The Detroit News.  The affidavit provides new details about how the FBI thwarted the alleged plot to kidnap Whitmer, a Democrat, and kill police officers by enlisting the help of confidential informants.  One of the informants was a militia member who met a group of men accused in the kidnapping plot and became so concerned that the individual agreed to become an FBI confidential informant, according to the court filing.

Police In Philadelphia 'Discover Van Loaded With Explosives, Suspicious Equipment,' Report Says.  Law enforcement officials in Philadelphia have reportedly launched an investigation into a vehicle that was discovered containing explosives and suspicious items, which comes as the city is rocked by left-wing anti-police riots and widespread looting.  "Action News has learned that police recovered propane tanks, torches and possible dynamite sticks from the van," ABC 6 reported.  "The bomb squad is on the scene at this hour." [...] "City officials say at least 200 businesses, many of them already struggling in the midst of the pandemic, were the targets of massive looting across the city," the report added.  "To assist police, an undetermined number of Pennsylvania National Guard troops will soon be arriving in the city."

BLM Thugs Just Handed Pennsylvania To Trump On A Platter As They Plunder And Destroy Philly, Here Are Some Lowlights.  A second night of unrest in Philadelphia began Tuesday night over the police shooting death of a Black man, just as his children recalled memories of their father in front of reporters and 1,000 looters reportedly began targeting businesses, police said.  Elsewhere in the city, looters ransacked a Foot Locker, Rite Aid and other retail stores.  At least one vehicle was set on fire.  The Philadelphia Police Department warned people to avoid the Port Richmond area where at least 1,000 looters were ransacking businesses that included a Burlington Coat Factory, Target and Dollar General.  [Video clip]

Journalist Gets Beaten For Filming Mass Looting In Philadelphia As City Devolves Into Madness.  BlazeTV reporter Elijah Schaffer was attacked Tuesday night inside a Philadelphia store while filming ongoing looting in the wake of the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr., who was killed after allegedly charging at officers while holding a knife on Monday.  [Video clip]

Destructive Brooklyn protest, with trash fires and broken windows, leaves local residents shaken.  The manager of a small Brooklyn Yemeni restaurant, on the morning after a violent protest marked by trash fires and broken windows, wondered Wednesday [10/28/2020] what the demonstrators hoped to accomplish.  Mahmoud Alsafarini, 25, arrived at the Hadramout Restaurant for his shift just a few doors down from the shattered glass at an Urban Outfitters outlet.  Several black-clad demonstrators also smashed windows at a Starbucks and a Bank of America branch on Court St., along with the windshield of a green taxi, in a demonstration over the Philadelphia police shooting of a knife-wielding Black man.  "These businesses don't belong to them," said Alsafarini in the aftermath of the wild march where 39 commercial properties were damaged.  "Say what you need to say without violence.  I was worried initially because the employees were still here.  They didn't have anything to protect themselves."

Violence And Chaos Erupt In Brooklyn As Police Are injured, Stores Looted And Destroyed.  A large crowd gathered to protest in solidarity with Philadelphia protests over the death of Walter Wallace Jr.  Who was shot ten times by the police, he was holding a knife according to authorities.  The group smashed police cars and some civilian car windows, multiple large businesses such as Bank of America windows were broken and multiple fires set throughout the march.  Cops kettled the group on Atlantic Ave between Smith and Boerum Pl and moved in to make arrests, when they tried to stop one car that was following the crowd the driver said "I'm trying to go home," and closed the door.  [Video clip]

Shutdown DC Plans to Shutdown the Election; the Left's Agenda is no Return to Normal.  If the Left has anything to do with it, there will be no return to anything that resembles "Normal".  Sadly, the rioting and looting in Philadelphia is a precursor to this.  Protests erupted on Monday [10/26/2020] after police shot and killed Walter Wallace, Jr., a mentally ill young man.  Wallace wielded a knife at officers and refused to drop it even after repeated orders to do so.  Now there is unrest in the streets, and apparently someone planned for these "spontaneous" protestors to be well armed.

Trump Resistance Plans 'Mass Mobilization' After Election To Shut Down The Country If Biden Doesn't Win.  Riot and protest instigators plan to "make sure Trump leaves the White House" by any means necessary after the Nov. 3 election, according to website posts from the group Shut Down DC and their allies.  "[W]e're making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way," the group says on its website currently. [...] The group linked to protests at the homes of Trump administration officials tells its DC-area supporters to "Come to Black Lives Matter Plaza" on election night "to create serious disruption if Trump really tries to steal the election!" Black Lives Matter Plaza is the site of repeated anti-Trump summer rioting and defacement of the historic Saint John's Church one block away from the White House.  On the page, Shut Down DC sketches out its plans for election night and immediately following.  On Nov. 4-7, the group says it plans to "do whatever it takes".

Democrat Meltdown:  Rep. Max Rose Attacks Shopper at Staten Island Store.  Democrat Rep. Max Rose (NY) is slipping in the polls in a race against Republican Nicole Malliotakis, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump.  And now the Democrat is facing backlash for cursing at a constituent outside a Staten Island grocery store when the man appears to disagree with him. [...] The news outlet [Shorefront News] reported Rose "may have snapped" as he faces a loss against Malliotakis, yet still referred to him as a "talented politician" who was "forced" by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to support Trump's impeachment.

Anti-cop protesters leave trail of destruction in Downtown Brooklyn.  Dozens of marching protesters were arrested in Brooklyn on Tuesday night after clashing with NYPD cops and leaving a trail of destruction in their wake in response to the Philadelphia police shooting death of an armed black man.  About 200 protesters met in Fort Greene Park before snaking their way through the streets, vandalizing police vehicles, torching an American flag and igniting at least one rubbish fire during their travels, according to footage posted to social media by video journalist Issa Khari.  "Burn the precinct to the ground, every city, every town!" the group, mainly clad in black, chanted as they marched near Boerum Place and Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn.  Near Willoughby and Jay streets, several protesters chucked rocks and bottles at police officers, sources said.  Others in the group wielded pieces of wood.

Left's Post-Election Agenda:  More Riots, 'Truth Commissions,' Other Punishment For Their Foes — That Means You.  You hear it every day.  Someone says, "I just want the election to be over," hoping out loud that things will somehow "return to normal" once the 2020 vote ends.  But it won't.  The left already has plans to ensure that.  By "return to normal," of course, we refer to an America not so riven by politics that families and neighbors no longer talk to each other because of the deep political divide.  An America where people again become friendly and human, politics recede in importance, the economy and schools reopen, and suspicion of others' political motives fade into the deep background.  Sounds great, the fabled tolerant America of yore.  But, sorry, whether Donald Trump wins or loses, the left has other plans.

Officer Run Over:  Philly Riots Over Man Shot Charging at Cops with Knife.  A black pickup truck appeared to hit a police officer in Philadelphia as unrest escalated in the Pennsylvania city following the shooting death of Walter Wallace Jr.  Wallace, shot earlier in the day as he was rushing at officers with a knife.  Dozens of officers were injured with rocks, bricks and other projectiles and this 56-year-old female officer, hit by a pickup truck and hospitalized with a broken leg.  [Video clip]

Biden Is Running a Protection Racket.  Joe Biden's big pitch is his promise to restore calm.  It's a con.  It's Antifa and Black Lives Matter — both on his side — that are stirring everything up.  He's trying to run a protection racket: vote Democrat, or the chaos continues.  Biden talks of calm, but it is not Trump-supporters storming restaurants and other public places across the country to demand obeisance to their agenda.  Instead, from Washington to Kentucky to Florida, it is the "Black Lives Matter" movement — which Biden has made a centerpiece of his campaign — that has smashed up restaurants, threatened their owners, and demanded that diners raise the black power fist.  As one headline put it, "aggressive mob of white BLM protesters threaten and film white diners at DC restaurants and DEMAND they raise their fist and show solidarity with them... or else."  Biden speaks of tolerance, but it isn't MAGA people marching into our schools, newsrooms, and even corporate boardrooms to demand absolute allegiance; it's Biden-supporting leftists.

Rioting Erupts In Philly, Police Are Attacked By ANTIFA And BLM Thugs.  Police officers fatally shot a 27-year-old Black man armed with a knife during a confrontation Monday afternoon in West Philadelphia that quickly raised tensions in the neighborhood.  Late into the night, growing anger, fueled by BLM claiming the man was unarmed, turned into a violent standoff at the local police district headquarters with several police officers injured by bricks or other objects hurled from the crowd.  There were reports of stores being looted and at least one police vehicle was set on fire.  [Video clip]

Black Man Charges Cop With A Knife, Gets Shot Dead, BLM Sparks Riots Soon After.  An investigation is underway after a man who police say was armed with a knife was shot and killed by officers in West Philadelphia late Monday afternoon [10/26/2020].  Police said they were called to Locust and South 61st streets shortly before 5 p.m. for a report of a man with a weapon.  When they arrived they say they found a man, later identified as Walter Wallace, who was holding a knife.  [Video clip]

Insane Violence and Mayhem Towards Jews, Trump Supporters And Cops In NYC This Weekend.  Fights, brawls, and arrests in a chaotic scene on Sunday [10/25/2020] in Times Square as Antifascists clashed with Trump Supporters.  The fistfights and brawls left some protesters bloodied and others arrested, at least one Trump supporter was seen taken away in handcuffs after the unlawful assembly has been declared.  Caravans started all over the city since the early morning, the Trump rally began at Trump Tower and marched, along with a caravan of vehicles to Times Square.  The counter-protesters hurled eggs at the caravan and pulled flags from their cars.  Rudy Giuliani was seen driving with the caravan and was then approached by a protester and Trump supporters on 5th Avenue.  [Video clip]

From the Army to Antifa:  Ex-private accused by feds of throwing explosive at Portland riot.  An ex-Army private has been federally charged for allegedly throwing an explosive mortar at law enforcement during a night of violent rioting in Portland in September.  Following an FBI investigation, 23-year-old Ty John Fox, of Astoria, Ore., was charged with felony civil disorder, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Oregon announced.  On Sept. 5, hundreds of Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters descended on the Portland Police Bureau's east precinct.  Viral video recorded that night showed rioters throwing lit Molotov cocktails toward the line of police.  Two people were set on fire and one person was taken to hospital for injuries.  Amid the mayhem, a sergeant was struck and injured by a commercial-grade mortar firework.

Vehicle Rams Line of Police Officers in Philadelphia.  As protests in Philadelphia turn violent after a man armed with a knife was shot and killed by police, a line of police officers, who appear to have been containing rioting, was run down by a speeding truck that appears to have left the scene.  [Video clip]

Truck driver runs over a cop and protesters pelt police with bricks as BLM demonstrators and looters swarm Philadelphia.  Rioting, vandalism and looting erupted in Philadelphia on Monday night [10/26/2020] hours after police fatally shot a 27-year-old black man armed with a knife during a domestic disturbance call.  Late into the night, growing anger boiled over into a violent riot near the Philadelphia Police 18th District building.  Several officers were injured by bricks and other projectiles thrown at them by a crowd of demonstrators.  At least 30 officers have been hurt with 12 hospitalized including one female Philadelphia Police Sergeant, 56, who suffered a broken leg after being hit by a speeding pick-up truck that was videoed driving towards a line of officers close to the city center shortly before 1 am, according to Philadelphia Police.

Protesters hurl eggs at Rudy Giuliani, pro-Trump demonstrators in NYC.  Anti-Trump protesters hurled eggs and insults at supporters of the president — including former mayor Rudy Giuliani — as they rolled through Manhattan in a convoy on Sunday [10/25/2020].  Video posted on Twitter shows a flag-draped pro-Trump caravan — identified online as a Jews for Trump demonstration — led by Giuliani being bombarded with eggs, including one spot at 59th Street and 5th Avenue — with one protester yelling "[...]" at the former Big Apple mayor.  [Video clip]

Exposing Liberals' 'Tiny Fraction' Lie.  In a recent podcast, Michelle Obama, as she continues to shed her "no red state nor blue state America but just United States of America" skin to reveal a ruthless, myopic partisan looking to settle scores from fights unknown while making clear to those paying attention how America became so much more divided after the Obama presidency, complains that the opposition to the protesters is "once again patently false, morally wrong, and racist." After all, she insists, the violence is committed by just a "tiny fraction" of the protesters. [...] First of all, the assertion of a tiny fraction is an absurdity.  An estimated 570 riots were violent during the George Floyd protests, 19 people died during 14 days of those protests, and approximately 2 billion dollars of damage has accrued from all this peace.  The magnitude of damage from a tiny fraction strains credulity, especially given the opportunity for live viewing of so many of these riots, in which looters and harassers are clearly more than small fractions, while the other participants, if any, cheerlead with venomous gusto.

Antifa Repeatedly Threatens Andy Ngo's Life.  What Are the Portland Police Doing About It?  On Thursday [10/22/2020], the Post Millennial Editor-at-Large Andy Ngo and author Douglas Murray posed in front of a large graffiti death threat in Portland reading, "Kill Andy Ngo."  Ngo claimed he has reported many death threats to the Portland Police Bureau, but the police have yet to follow up with him on these threats.  "One of many such signs in Downtown Portland.  There is nothing normal about this.  It is a call for the murder of a journalist in an American city.  Shame on the Portland authorities for tolerating it," Murray tweeted.  "All death threats and incitements to violence against me have been reported to [the Portland Police] since last year.  I have not been followed-up with once," Ngo added.

Sounds to me like selective enforcement.

Bernie Bro with Van Full of Guns and Explosives Plotted to Assassinate Biden — Media Buries the Lede, as Usual.  Most of the time, the media doesn't outright lie to you.  Yeah, every once in a while they'll blurt out a huge whopper ("Russian collusion"), but usually it's more subtle than that.  They'll give you the facts, but they'll emphasize some facts over others to preserve the narrative they're selling.  They'll lie by omission.  They'll distract you with trivia while the real story slips by you unnoticed.  For example, did you hear about the guy they just arrested in North Carolina for plotting to kill Joe Biden?  Do you think you know why he wanted to do that? [...] What was [Alexander Hillel] Treisman's motive?  He must be one of those evil Proud Boys or crazy QAnon freaks we keep hearing so much about, right?  Wrong.  But to find out the actual motive, you have to go all the way down to paragraph 15 of the WaPo story. [...] He's a Bernie Bro.  He wanted to kill Biden to somehow help Bernie.

Republican Congressman And His Family 'Threatened' At Their Home.  Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) released a statement on Friday afternoon [10/23/2020] indicating that he and his family were threatened at their home today by someone who left a dead animal and a brick with a family member's name on it at the residence.  "Today, my family and I were threatened at our home in Corning," Reed said in a statement.  "The cowards used a dead animal and a brick with a family member's name on it to try to intimidate us."  "We assure everyone such threats only energize us to stand stronger," Reed continued.

Massachusetts woman is charged with assault for 'pushing a 73-year-old Vietnam veteran into an intersection because he was holding a Trump sign'.  A Massachusetts woman has been charged with assault after she allegedly pushed an elderly veteran to the ground while he was holding a pro-Trump sign.  Kiara Dudley, 34, was taken into custody following the purported attack on 73-year-old George Griffin, which is said to have occurred in the town of Douglas on Saturday.  Griffin — who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War — was standing on the town's Main Street with his wife, Joann, brandishing a 'Veterans For Trump' sign.  According to Douglas police, the couple were subsequently approached by a small group who 'began to berate them with insults and demanded that they leave.'

Who made it necessary to use tear gas?  Look in the mirror, hippies!
Liberals' New Outrage:  ACLU, Environmental Groups Sue DHS Over Tear Gas Used In Protests.  Just when you think progressive liberal groups have exhausted all forms to express outrage over, there's more.  They always find a way; there's always a way.  While celebrities want to use their powerful status with fame and money to get criminals out of jail, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) found their own fight.  Protesters, rioters and looters in cities across the country have forced law enforcement and government agencies to combat their destructive behavior; at times, tear gas was used when the crowds grew aggressive.  The Associated Press reports that according to the ACLU, "human health and the environment are suffering the consequences" of the chemicals used in the tear gas.

Student newspaper publishes instructions on how to make a Molotov cocktail.  The student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin -Milwaukee posted an opinion-editorial containing instructions on how to make and use a Molotov cocktail.  The editor-in-chief of the UWM Post, Adam Kelnhofer, wrote an op-ed on June 14 going over the history of the Molotov cocktail after protests broke out in Milwaukee following the death of George Floyd.  The op-ed included instructions on how to "make a Molotov cocktail."

The Antifa Industry at Work:
Professional left-wing organizers, planning for post-election chaos, promise to "shut down" the capital and engage in "civil resistance."  Writing at the American Mind last month, Michael Anton, author of The Stakes:  America at the Point of No Return, brought attention to a war game report issued by the Transition Integrity Project, an ad hoc group associated with the George Soros-funded Democracy Integrity Project.  Anton's widely read essay, "The Coming Coup?" was heavily discussed on social media and by conservative talk show hosts including Dan Bongino, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck.  What conservatives found so alarming was that the Transition Integrity Project urged Trump's opponents to wage a "street fight, not a legal one" in the near-certain event of a contested election.  In other words, forces arrayed against the president's reelection should abandon the American political system — and pin their hopes of election victory not on the Constitution-mandated quest for the most electoral votes, but upon the street mobilization and direct-action capabilities of Antifa and the Left's other professionally-staffed organizing groups.  As a heavily contested Election Day approaches, it is crucial for both conservative activists and officials in law enforcement to understand that left-wing organizing for direct-action and "nonviolent" civil disobedience is being planned by career organizing professionals working within well-funded, interlocking organizations.

BLM Activist Faces Hate Crime Charges for Knocking Out the Teeth of a Black Conservative.  On Saturday [10/17/2020], a Black Lives Matter mob targeted a free speech rally against Big Tech in San Francisco.  An assailant socked the free speech rally organizer, 25-year-old black conservative Philip Anderson, in the jaw, knocking out his two front teeth.  On Sunday, the San Francisco Police Department arrested a suspect, 35-year-old Androa "Dro" Anderson, charging him with mayhem and a hate crime enhancement.  Philip Anderson organized the protest on his website, "Team Save America."  He launched the protest after Facebook and Twitter took unprecedented steps to censor a New York Post article about Hunter Biden.

Liberals Threatening Violence If Trump Is Reelected.  It is worth reminding those that didn't watch that news pundits actually cried live, on-air, completely forgoing even the pretense of objectivity anymore.  Some have seen the video below, some haven't, but it is perfectly representative of how shocked media personalities, pundits, comedians and celebrities all freaked out on television, because they too had believed the pollsters who were almost all wrong, and allowed themselves to become over-confident, assured that their candidate cannot lose.  [Video clip]

Threatening letter
Threatened in New Hampshire:  A warning to all Trump supporters.  "You have been identified as a Trump Supporter," the letter begins.  It asks if you have fire insurance, and ends with the statement, "you have been given fair warning." Not an implied threat, but an implicit threat to burn down houses of Trump supporters.  While these letters were delivered in two small in New Hampshire towns, they culminate four years of hatred of this president and everyone who supports him.  It is the expected outcome of the largest propaganda war launched against a nation since Joseph Goebbels ran the Reich Ministry of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945.  The lessons learned from Goebbels are being applied today by the legacy media, high tech media, and the Democratic party.  The key to the Goebbels' strategy was to have one voice.  And that is exactly what the combined Democratic propaganda machine is giving to America and, sadly, to the world.  One voice that hides any dissension, or variance from their talking points.


What Kenosha Looks Like After Riots and Looting.  In just 48 hours, over 40 businesses in the quiet city of Kenosha, Wisconsin were ravaged by violence, according to the Kenosha Area Business Alliance.  Rioters looted and torched shops on the nights of Aug. 23 and 24.  The Daily Signal traveled there to see what it looked like.  The city of 99,000, situated on Lake Michigan between Chicago and Milwaukee, is "a little big town," Kenosha local and business owner Scott Carpenter says.  Carpenter's business, B&L Office Furniture, was burned to the ground in riots after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, 29.  [Video clip]

Left Proposes "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" to Target Trump Supporters if Biden Wins.  Members of the professional left are now proposing a 'truth and reconciliation commission' to shame Trump supporters if Joe Biden wins.  These would be the same people who have spent four years calling Trump an authoritarian, a dictator, a fascist, a cult leader, and worse.  Those same people are now proposing Orwellian forms of public shaming for having the 'wrong' views. [...] Make no mistake about what is being suggested.  These people are talking about a vindictive form of retaliation for wrongthink.

Suspect Charged With Hate Crime For Attacking Black Pro-Trump Free Speech Rally Organizer.  A suspect has been charged with a hate crime after allegedly attacking a pro-Trump free speech rally organizer in San Francisco, a police report says.  The San Francisco Police Department arrested Adora Anderson, 35, Sunday [10/19/2020] and charged him with mayhem and a hate crime enhancement, according to the statement.

Man putting Black Lives Matter sign in his yard arrested after shooting at Trump supporters.  A Maryland man is being held without bond and has been charged for firing a shotgun as Trump supporters drove by in a pickup truck while he put a Black Lives Matter sign in his yard.  CBS Baltimore reports the incident happened Saturday afternoon in Kingsville, Maryland, a semi-rural community about 10 miles northeast of Baltimore.  Police have booked resident Douglas Kuhn with multiple charges, including assault.

Antifa man who hit Seattle officer with a metal bat said he wanted to 'slit every SPD throat'.  Yesterday [10/19/2020] Seattle PD announced the arrest of 19-year-old Jacob Greenberg in connection with multiple incidents of violence that took place at protests.  The best known of these was his use of a metal bat to strike an SPD officer in the back of the head.  Fortunately, the officer was wearing a helmet which probably saved his life.  The helmet was cracked by the impact from the bat. [...] As Ed pointed out when this happened last month, the anti-police individual who filmed the attack deleted their own video after Antifa complained it could be used to identify the people involved.  Unfortunately for Greenberg, the video had already been copied by others.  Using the clip police were able to tie him to multiple other crimes including throwing a Molotov cocktail at a police precinct on Sep. 1 and setting fire to dumpsters on Sep. 26.

Some media liberals urge revenge, payback if Trump loses.  Media commentators, who are unloading everything they have on President Trump, are no longer content with the idea of him merely losing.  Now, in their esteemed estimation, there has to be a "reckoning."  As part of a package of editorial condemnation, the New York Times declared that "Donald Trump's reelection campaign poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II."  Then the Washington Post's Outlook opinion section devoted its cover to two alternatives:  whether Trump and his minions should be prosecuted or merely investigated as part of a national truth commission.

Police investigate threatening letters sent to Trump supporters.  Milford police are trying to track down whoever is behind a series of letters that were sent to supporters of President Donald Trump threatening to burn down their homes.  Kelly, a Milford resident who asked to be identified only by her first name, said she received one of the letters.  "Dear neighbor," the letter read.  "You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter.  Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election."  The anonymous author went on to say Kelly should hope her home insurance has fire coverage.

Activist group plans widespread, 'disruptive' election activities to thwart potential Trump 'coup'.  An activist group is planning large-scale and widespread 'disruptive activity' starting on the night of the election, in an attempt to stop what it predicts will be an "attempted coup" by President Trump in the form of a refusal to accept the election results.  "Shut Down D.C." is setting the stage for mass gatherings in D.C., noting that the "resistance" must begin during the "muddied" legal and political debate over the election outcome.  "Trump will not leave office without mass mobilization and direct action," the group says on its website.  In a separate document, first reported by The Federalist, the group characterizes its planned movement as an "uprising," and calls for potentially blockading the White House, blocking traffic, shutting down government office buildings and even Amazon fulfillment centers.

Trump Team Accuses Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Encouraging Assassination of President Weeks Before Election.  Donald Trump's reelection campaign accused Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer of "encouraging assassination attempts" targeting the president on Sunday afternoon [10/18/2020], amid escalating conflict between the two political leaders.  Trump's campaign, which uses the handle "Trump War Room" on Twitter, based its allegations against Whitmer on a token with the numbers "8645" clearly visible.  The token appeared behind her during an interview with NBC News host Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday morning.  "Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an '86 45' sign during her TV appearance.  86 can be shorthand for killing someone," the Trump campaign tweeted, alongside a screenshot from the governor's interview.  "Whitmer is encouraging assassination attempts against President Trump just weeks after someone sent a ricin-laced package to the White House."

Douglas Woman Charged With Attacking 73-Year-Old Trump Supporter.  A woman charged with assaulting a Vietnam veteran because he supports President Trump was released on $250 bail Monday.  Kiara Dudley, 34, was arrested after the weekend incident in Douglas.  The 73-year-old veteran and another person were at the intersection of Main and Webster streets just after noon Saturday with Trump flags and signs.  Police said Dudley went up to the couple and "began to berate them with insults" and told them to leave.  As the couple tried to move away, police said Dudley bumped the veteran with her body and then stepped on his "Veterans for Trump" sign.  As he bent over to pick it up, investigators said Dudley "knocked him to the ground causing an injury to his finger."  Several people called 911 and Dudley was later arrested.

Ordered Liberty is Not White Supremacy and Does Not Date from 1619.  In the midst of this election year we are seeing widespread assaults on freedom of speech of those who do not share the leftist dogma.  Dissenters from the doctrine are labeled "racist."  The assaults on freedom of speech have been accompanied by rioting and violence in mostly Democrat-run cities under the guise of protests against "institutional" or "systemic" racism in policing and law enforcement.  These riots are being conducted by Marxist-anarchists, and leaders of the Democrat party only began to condemn them when the polls reflected negatively on the Party's chances for November.

The Brownshirts Are Back.  Some American cities, like Portland, Seattle and San Francisco, are starting to look like Germany in the 1930s.  Yesterday a free speech rally was held in downtown San Francisco.  Those marching for free speech were attacked by fascists from Antifa.  Zero Hedge has collected photos and videos.  Event organizer Philip Anderson was attacked by the Brownshirts, who knocked out his front teeth.  White mob attacks black man and knocks out his teeth?  It's OK, they're Democrats.

San Francisco Conservative Rally Attacked By Antifa Mob.  When you think of San Francisco, a conservative rally in support of the President and law enforcement probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind.  But a group called Team Save America somehow managed to pull one off yesterday.  Or at least they did so briefly.  The group was displaying Thin Blue Line flags, along with American flags as they protested Twitter's suppression of free speech and the blackout of news unfavorable to Joe Biden.  The reason the rally didn't last long was that hundreds of Antifa thugs showed up almost immediately and began attacking both the protesters and the police who were attempting to keep the two groups apart.  At least one protester was taken to the hospital and multiple officers were injured.

Free speech rally marred by violence as counterprotesters storm event, beat pro-Trump demonstrators.  A rally called to promote free speech and denounce big tech censorship turned ugly Saturday in San Francisco, when hundreds of alleged Antifa counterprotesters showed up and berated and attacked demonstrators, leaving one missing a tooth.  The conservative group Team Save America organized the event to protest Twitter, which it argues censors free speech.  They planned to rally at United Nations Plaza before moving the protest to Twitter's headquarters a few blocks away.  But the event quickly devolved into a shouting match and violence as hundreds of counterprotesters stormed the scene.  Video shows one counterprotester punching Philip Anderson, an organizer of the event, knocking one of his teeth out.  Anderson posted a picture of the aftermath on social media and said he was attacked by Antifa.

What Happened to the Riots?  According to the Bridging the Divide Initiative, a Princeton think tank that conducts U.S. protest modeling with a wink and nod to the left, there was a free fall in the number of BLM-associated demonstrations and uprisings from a late-May peak to an October low.  Who or what was responsible for this plunge? [...] CNN anchorman Don Lemon, who has often made light of the mob violence for CNN's two million primetime viewers, suddenly called for an end to hostilities.  He fretted not over the loss of life, attacks on police officers, or the destruction of small businesses.  Instead, he lamented that it wasn't polling well for the Biden campaign.  Lemon's apostasy and reproach was a warning shot to upper-crust Democrats that their reluctance to censure street anarchism was becoming a clear reflection of their support for the violence.

Truck With Trump Flags Torched By Arsonists Near Portland.  Another day, another fuzzy picture of a night time fire set by violent leftists suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.  Today's edition features a pickup truck in Vancouver, Washington, just north of Portland (duh), that was adorned with Trump flags.  That is until crazed arsonists decided to light the flags afire, and the flames spread to torch the whole truck.

Antifa rioters who targeted Portland cafe 'solidified' his Trump vote, military veteran says.  A cafe owned by a military veteran was shot at during a chaotic demonstration in Portland over the weekend after being deemed by rioters as unfriendly to the Black Lives Matter movement.  Heroes American Cafe was targeted for being an "unfriendly business" by so-called Antifa-linked Twitter accounts, owner John Jackson told Fox News.  Two windows in the cafe's downtown location were shot at and another was struck with a blunt object — possibly a baseball bat — said Jackson, a Black man who served in the Army and Marine Corps.

New and Troubling Questions About Murder of Trump Supporter at Rally in Denver.  In this story yesterday I wrote about the discovery of the left-wing protest connections of Denver murder suspect Matthew Dolloff, who shot and killed Lee Keltner, an attendee at the "Patriot Muster" pro-Trump rally. [...] There is a lot more to the story this morning [10/12/2020].  First, Dolloff was not a licensed security guard.  The City of Denver has a municipal ordinance requiring anyone employed as a "security guard" to possess a city license authorizing the person to work in that capacity inside Denver city limits.  To get the license the applicant must complete the specified training.  If the applicant is to be armed as a security guard, he must undergo some additional training, and pass a firearms proficiency course.  If the security guard is going to work in a "plain clothes" capacity — as Dolloff was — he must undergo even more training before getting the license.  An official for the City of Denver licensing department responded to a news inquiry that they have no application or file for anyone named Matthew Dolloff as holding the necessary license issued by the City of Denver.

Trump Supporter Shot Dead in Denver, Media Tiptoes Around It.  You wouldn't know it if your only news source was the legacy media, but on Saturday, a Trump supporter was shot and killed in broad daylight outside the Denver Art Museum.  There was a Black Lives Matter rally and something called a "Patriot Muster" going on at the same time, and when the two groups clashed, someone was shot.  The shooting was in full view of a crowd of people, and there's footage of the attack from multiple angles.  [Video clips] [...] I'm no lawyer, but this does not look like self-defense to me.  The shooter was reaching for his gun before the victim started pepper-spraying him, and the victim was backing away as the gun came out and up.  It actually looks like the victim was trying to defend himself from someone who was about to shoot him.  But even if it were the other way around, pepper spray is non-lethal and there's no justification for lethal force in response.

About that so-called 'security guard' who gunned down a Trump supporter in Denver.  Was a local Denver television station hiring violent Antifa supporters to act as their personal security guards?  That's what it's starting to look like, given that Saturday, an apparent radical leftist was hired as a 'security guard' by local news station 9News/KUSA, who then got into a shouting altercation with an anti-communist group member, pulled out a gun, and opened fire on Lee Keltner, shooting him dead. [...] Much of the focus now is on who was to blame, or whether the 'security guard' was somehow provoked.  But how [...] did this guy have a role as a security guard for newsmen covering protestors?  Matthew Dolloff was a non-employee "contractor," supposedly connected to the Pinkerton agency, according to 9News, and he acted as the 'security guard' for newsmen covering the yelling and screaming rallies.  However, he had no security certification, as required by law.  He was just a scruffy character with an Occupy!  Denver past with a gun.  Was he really a security guard, or was he a leftist protestor?  Based on the filmed sequences here, it appears he was acting as a leftist protestor.

Denver Murder Victim Incorrectly ID'd As Part of "Right-Wing Patriot Rally".  Lee Keltner, a 49-year-old Navy veteran, was murdered in Denver on Saturday.  He was killed by 30-year-old Matthew Dolloff, who claimed to be a private security guard.  Keltner sprayed mace at Dolloff, who drew his weapon and shot Keltner in the head.  The victim was pronounced dead at a local hospital.  Johnathon Keltner, Lee's 24-year-old son, told a newspaper reporter that his father was not part a specific group.  He said his father was "there to rally for the police department."  News reports immediately claimed that Keltner was part of a "Right-Wing Patriot Rally."  Dolloff, who shot Keltner from about six feet away, was immediately surrounded by police and taken into custody.

Alleged Denver shooter Matthew Robert Dolloff is a proud radical leftist.  A man accused of shooting and killing Trump supporter Lee Keltner in Denver yesterday [10/10/2020] has been proclaimed by both law enforcement and mainstream media as definitely not being associated with Antifa, the radical progressive domestic terrorist organization that Joe Biden has said is just "an idea."  But his past social media posts and direct affiliation with Antifa precursor, Occupy Democrats, seem to indicate that if he was not a member of Antifa, that his ideology closely aligned with theirs at the very least.

Keith Olbermann:  Trump Supporters Are 'Maggots,' Must Be 'Prosecuted'.  Former ESPN host Keith Olbermann lashed out at Trump supporters Friday night, calling for the prosecution and conviction of all those connected with the president.  Mr. Olbermann called Trump supporters "maggots," the new insult du jour to replace 2016's "deplorables" in the 2020 presidential election.

9 Warning Signs of Democrat Radicalization.  If you threaten strangers and destroy property in the name of Black Lives Matter or Antifa, then local Democrat prosecutors will make sure you never answer for your crimes.  If you exercise your Second Amendment right to protect the lives of your family and secure your property, those same Democrat prosecutors will threaten your liberty and future.  If you riot in the name of "justice," then you are performing a public service.  If you seek spiritual salvation by attending church or synagogue, then you are a public health threat.  When Democrats are in office, there are two tiers of justice in America, one for protecting Democrats and one for harassing Republicans.  Former attorney general Eric Holder aptly articulated this reality when he argued that the fight against Republicans is "not about principle" but about the "acquisition and use of power."

BLM lily-white goons
Here's every Antifa goon arrested in Portland last night during their BLM anti-police protest.  Notice anything they all have in common?  The Antifa dweebs were out in Portland last night, dressed in black and covered in body armor (and body odor, no doubt), and 26 of them got themselves arrested.  Just curious:  Do you notice anything they all have in common? [...] Armored attire or not, judging by the mugshots, those must've been the easiest 26 arrests ever made.  I honestly feel bad for these lost souls.  They are desperate for a cause to believe in.


Leftists Want Us Dead... And Our Culture.  Reports say a history professor at the University of Rhode Island sees nothing wrong with killing a fascist.  The problem is:  Extreme leftists have a very broad understanding of who may be identified as a fascist.  But what did professor Erik Loomis actually say?  "[Reinoehl] killed a fascist.  I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective."  [Why Was Michael Reinoehl Killed? by Erik Loomis, Lawyers, Guns & Money, September 4, 2020]  The "fascist" murdered by Michael Reinoehl was Aaron "Jay" Danielson.  Danielson was a member of the Patriot Prayer group, which supports Donald Trump.  That, apparently, qualifies him as a fascist and worthy of death.  Danielson was gunned down on a street in Portland, Oregon, where he organized a caravan to support the president.  The murder occurred August 29, 2020 and was video recorded.  Days later Reinoehl, himself, was fatally shot by police when he resisted arrest.  Who else does Loomis consider fascists?  "The police is [sic] shot through with fascists from stem to stern," he wrote.  "They were openly working with the fascists in Portland, as they were in Kenosha which led to dead protestors."  Seriously?  Does Loomis consider it a capital offense to support President Trump or to be a police officer?  So it seems.

Denver 'Patriot Rally' shooter railed against Trump on social media.  The unlicensed security guard accused of fatally shooting a Navy veteran at a Denver "Patriot Rally" railed against President Trump and shared left-wing political content on social media.  Matthew Dolloff's ex-girlfriend, told the Daily Mail, she dated Dolloff from 2010 to 2013, and during that time period, the former couple were both heavily involved in Occupy Denver — the local branch of Occupy Wall Street.  Dolloff, 35, a registered Democrat, includes dozens of political posts on his Facebook profile dating back to 2011 in which he railed against Republicans including President Trump in June 2016, [...]

'Murdered because he backed the police': Man shot and killed during Denver rallies identified.  The man shot and killed during dueling political rallies in Denver has been identified as a veteran and local hat maker, Lee Keltner.  "My son Lee was at the patriot rally today in Denver," Keltner's mother, Carole, posted on the Northeast Arkansas Tea Party Facebook group.  "He was murdered because he backed the police."  "His 24 year old son was with him," she continued, which was reported by the New York Post.  "I moved to Arkansas because Colorado got too expensive and liberal.  The left has gotten out of hand."  Keltner had been living in Denver and was a hatter at Crossfire Hats in the city's historic district for more than 20 years.  The Sun reported he was shot and killed in front of his son.

Suspect in Denver shooting [is] not a licensed security guard.  The private security guard who has been jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder stemming from a deadly shooting on Saturday in Denver during dueling protests was reportedly not properly licensed to work in the position.  Matthew Robert Dolloff, 30, was reportedly working as a contracted security guard for 9News at the time of the shooting.  The local news station reported late Sunday that he was contracted through another company to accompany its news staff to the protests.  The station reported that it later found out that it appears that Dolloff was not actually employed by the company it used and the company did not provide additional information about his actual employer.

Shooter At Pro-Trump Rally in Denver Has Longstanding Ties to Left-Wing Protest Groups.  Social media sleuths have uncovered the name of the shooter in the murder of a "Patriot Muster" Rally attendee in Denver on Saturday.  Online booking records for the Denver Police Department show only one person arrested for First Degree murder on October 10, 2020, and his name is Matthew Dolloff.  His identity has now been confirmed by the Denver television station that hired him for security.  More on that below.  The identity of the victim has now been confirmed by his family. [...] Some websites are already canvassing the shooter's social media history and his numerous expressions of support for various left-wing causes — which is extremism seeming to have increased in recent years.  One of the first social media messages connecting him to left-wing groups was his confirmation that he would be attending an "Occupy Denver" protest rally in 2011.  He's also a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders on social media.

If Biden/ Harris Win, A Crackdown On Whites Is Coming.  Two recent events show us that a victory for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on November 3 will unleash a war on whites.  First was the alleged "white supremacist" plot, inspired by President Trump's "rhetoric," to kidnap the tyrannical Leftist governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.  Second is Twitter's suspension of Lauren Witzke, the anti-immigration, America First candidate who has already won the GOP Senate nomination in Delaware, merely for criticizing mass Third World immigration. [...] Truth is, Brandon Caserta, leader of the group, is a NeverTrump, anti-cop anarchist.  "Trump is not your friend," he says.  "He's shown over and over and over again that he's a tyrant.  Every single person that works for government is your enemy."  [Video clip]  Yet somehow that man is acting on Trump's orders?!  Ridiculous yes, but that's what we're told by people who want to suppress Trump and his supporters.  Witzke's crime:  telling an obvious truth.  Import Third World immigrants and you'll soon be living in the Third World.

'White Supremacist' Suspect In Michigan Kidnapping Plot Is Actually A Trump-Hating Anarchist.  A new video of one of the 13 men arrested and charged in an alleged kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer shows the suspect is a Trump-hating anarchist despite media claims the plot was hatched by pro-Trump white supremacists.  "You know Trump is not your friend, dude," said Brandon Caserta, with a large anarchist flag hanging on his wall behind him.  "And it amazes me that people actually, like, believe that.  When he's shown over and over and over again that he's a tyrant.  Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude." [...] In another video from Caserta, the anarchist asserted, "[police] are oppressing you for a paycheck."  "If you're still supporting law enforcement... you are supporting the people who are enforcing slavery on everyone else."

Democrat Governor of Delaware Pardoned One of Gov. Whitmer's Kidnap Plotters.  The whole story about these clowns who were exposed last week in a foiled plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer keeps getting a tad bit stranger as more comes out.  As I wrote here last week on this, thankfully the plot was foiled by the police before she was able to defund them. [...] Now comes word that one of the idiots planning on doing this was just pardoned by her fellow Governor, and Democrat to boot, just last year in the State of Delaware.  You know Deleware, where Joe Biden served as a Senator forever and not Scranton, Pennsylvania as you might believe from all of the commercials. [...] Now, this pardon did not release him from jail but it did clear his record to possibly give him the clearance to purchase some things he would not have been able to do before.  This will undoubtedly come out in the following months as this case is continued to be laid out.  Yet doesn't it seem that the Democrats are the ones pandering to people who are all about defunding the police and destroying property and life and calling it peaceful?  Including bailing them out of jail or even pardoning people.  That might be a strategy they rethink going forward.

Delaware suspect in Whitmer plot was pardoned last year.  The Delaware man charged in federal court with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has a long criminal history and was pardoned just last year by Delaware's governor for crimes dating to 1994, according to state records.  Barry G. Croft Jr., 44, was taken into custody this week after being arrested by the FBI in Swedesboro, New Jersey.

A Riot In The Suburbs:  Inside The Changing Face Of Wisconsin 2020.  [Scroll down]  This shooting wasn't a case of police killing an unarmed black youth.  The victim, 17-year-old Alan Cole, had been armed when police tried to arrest him on Feb. 2.  The officer, Joseph Mensah, is also black, and fired only after Cole discharged his weapon, inadvertently hitting himself in the arm.  Further complicating matters is Mensah's record:  This is the third time the officer has killed someone in the line of duty in the last five years — and the third time Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has cleared Mensah of wrongdoing in a fatal shooting.  After the decision, hundreds of protesters first took to the freeway downtown and then made their way towards the scene of the shooting in Wauwatosa.  When police in riot gear blocked their path, they turned onto North Avenue and began indiscriminately smashing windows.  The police eventually deployed tear gas and pepper balls, the crowd lobbed bricks at the police, and at one point a group of rioters looted a gas station until the police arrived and the guilty scattered.

At Least Two of Gretchen Whitmer's Kidnapping Conspirators Appear to Be Anti-Trump Anarchists.  It didn't take long for the internet to dig up what the FBI didn't feel was necessary to mention in its complaint about at least one, if not more, of the conspirators indicted in a frightening plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in a planned assault at her vacation home.  After the FBI revealed the plot in an indictment on Thursday, Governor Whitmer irresponsibly accused President Trump of stirring up the hatred against her by his support for the Proud Boys.  For the record, the Proud Boys, a right-leaning group, was not mentioned in the indictment.  No one involved in the plot is stated to be a part of the group, and President Trump reportedly didn't know who the Proud Boys were until the past few days — nor did President Trump give them instructions, as Whitmer claimed in her inflammatory news conference following the news of the indictments.

BLM rioters move into rich, liberal suburb as resident complains that they are supporters.  Affluent liberals deceive themselves that they will get a "pass" from violent radical revolutionaries if they sympathize enough with their causes.  The latest group to begin to learn the hard way lives in swing state Wisconsin.

BLM Rioters Raid The Suburbs, Smash Random Homes' Windows During Night Of Wilding in Wauwatosa.  Windows were broken at Colectivo Coffee and Swan U-Serv Pharmacy, and the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Wauwatosa at the corner of Swan Boulevard and North Avenue.  Videos from Julio Rosas, a conservative reporter with Townhall.com, shows young men throwing bricks in the windows of businesses and appearing to break the windows of several residences near the scene where police fired tear gas at the crowd.

BLM mobs smash windows in residential homes during Wisconsin protests.  Black Lives Matter mobs protesting in Wisconsin over the decision not to charge a black cop for fatally shooting a gun-firing teen turned their rage on innocent homeowners — lobbing rocks through windows on a residential street.  Troubling video showed up to a dozen people running up to homes in Wauwatosa, the sound of breaking glass and celebratory horn blasts as they repeatedly hurl heavy objects through windows.  "That's people's houses!" at least one distressed-sounding woman screamed, as others tried to get the rampaging mob to stop, as filmed by Julio Rosas, a reporter for the conservative publication Townhall.  "That's their [...] home — it's not their fault!" shouted another man in the crowd.  Wauwatosa police tweeted warnings to locals to "shelter in their homes, lock their doors, and move away from windows."

BLM Rioters Attack Businesses and Private Homes in Wisconsin.  Those "peaceful protesters" who Michelle Obama was talking about were at it again tonight in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  The riots have been continuing elsewhere, while we've been covering the debates and the president getting ill.  They haven't stopped.  But they got another "spark" off today.  Not that they really need any more, because truthfully facts don't matter to these rioters.  On Wednesday[,] we found out that an officer would not face charges in the death of 17 year old Alvin Cole because there was sufficient evidence to believe that the Wauwatosa officer, who was also black, Joseph Mensah, had reason for self-defense.  That kicked them off.  As Julio Rosas reported for Townhall, a group then went on a smashing rampage throughout the town.  First, they smashed up the windows of businesses including Kumon Learning.  Because apparently helping kids to learn is offensive to the BLM.

Chris Cuomo Coldly Says on Air He Wants to Choke, Punch His Critics at Fox News.  CNN Prime Time anchor Chris Cuomo coldly said on air Tuesday night he wants to violently hurt his critics at the Fox News Channel, saying he wants to put them in a "naked choke" hold and "punch them in the sternum."  Cuomo was talking with Don Lemon during the change of programs at the 10 p.m.  Eastern hour.  Lemon was trying to explain away the lack of yard signs for Joe Biden compared to Trump signs being seen all around the country by saying that Biden supporters were ignoring President Trump.  Odd reasoning, but this is Don Lemon.

Defending Trump from a Tornado of Liberal Lies.  The media's whitewashing of the riots is mind-boggling.  The words we use are important in accurately conveying a message; using words to sugarcoat reality is wrong.  The left is using the phrase "peaceful protests" to describe burning down cities and bludgeoning business-owners who guard their stores from the looters.  Commentators are earnestly lamenting the deprivations of poverty that supposedly are driving the poor to steal in order to be able to eat; actually, the visuals show footage of those stealing luxury items — everything from elite athletes' signature sneakers to big screen TVs — and partiers who are just grabbing whatever — frequently alcohol — for the bragging rights.  Then there are the serious analysts who are using the riots as a pretext to attack Trump.  And for what?  Blaming him for the failures of Democrat mayors and governors to maintain order because... Trump's hate-filled racist rhetoric caused the riots.  The rioters are obviously left-wingers, out-of-work students intoxicated by Marxist rhetoric and bored inner-city kids being manipulated in anarchy by Antifa.  All the talk about "white supremacy" groups is a smokescreen and an insult to the viewers who can see what is actually happening despite all of the gaslighting about "mostly peaceful protests."

Triggered Democrat Party Media Guy Pulls a Knife on 'Oregon Women for Trump' Convoy.  Don't worry, Democrats.  The local Democrat Party communications guy who was caught in photos and video threatening and intimidating the women of "Oregon Women for Trump" with a knife on Sunday is just fine.  He's out of jail and everything, as you would expect in the second largest county in the People's Republic.  So don't worry.  This is Oregon, and — quick look... here's a white supremacist over there! — so this whole episode will go down the collective media memory hole in no time, just like that Hispanic "white supremacist" murdered by antifa.  Or at least that's the fear being expressed by the Oregon Women for Trump, who were confronted by Clayton John Callahan on Sunday afternoon [10/4/2020] in the lovely Portland suburb of Hillsboro.

Oregon Democrat Official Pulls Knife On Trump Supporter.  Clayton Callahan is the communications director for the Washington County Democrat party and was allegedly following a Trump car cruise organized by "Oregon Women for Trump". He was making sexual gestures and yelling at the women.  One of the men helping with security went up to his car to take a picture and Clayton got furious and pulled his knife and started chest bumping him.  The video shows that he is obviously mentally ill and unhinged.  This is concerning because he is a C.O. for a women's prison at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility.  [Video clip]

BLM Co-Founder Claims Joe Biden Is Part Of "Violent White Supremacist" System.  Vice President Joe Biden would like America's youth to believe that he has bent over backwards to 'really listen' to the demands of young progressives/cryptomarxists, including the activists in "Black Lives Matter".  Unfortunately for him, the transparent pandering hasn't been all that convincing.  Even after Biden and his fellow Democrats tacitly indulged the worst excesses of these so-called "activists" — anarchic rioting and violence in cities big and small across American — it seems the former VEEP, who played second fiddle to America's first black president for 8 years, has failed to win the BLM crowd over.  The latest evidence of this an be found in an ABC News interview with several young activists who are 'still out in the streets' peacefully protesting tell the press that they might consider voting for a third-party candidate instead of Biden.  [Video clip]

Antifa violence escalates as movement goes mainstream.  Antifa's profile is rising so quickly that it even got name-checked at last week's presidential debate.  As the movement enters the mainstream, its sympathizers are escalating the violence from throwing rocks and blocking doors to physical assaults and, for the first time, killing.  The rising level of violence from the group marks a sinister evolution from minor street crime to guerrilla tactics usually reserved for revolutionaries.  "The fear is that we are witnessing the beginning of something that could be more violent over time," said Michael Kenney, a University of Pittsburgh professor who has interviewed Antifa sympathizers.

DHS: White supremacists are the most lethal domestic extremist threat.  Last year was the deadliest for incidents of domestic extremism in 25 years — and White supremacists were responsible for the vast majority of people killed in them, Homeland Security said Tuesday in a new threat assessment.  The long-awaited report labeled White supremacists "the most persistent and lethal" domestic threat to the country — though acting Secretary Chad F. Wolf also warned of an "alarming" rise of violent protests trading on anti-authority messages.  For more traditional threats, Mr. Wolf labeled Russia the "primary" enemy when it comes to injecting disinformation into the election — though he said Moscow's aim is less about selecting a candidate and more about weakening the U.S.

'Protesters' Get 'Mostly Peaceful' Outside LAPD Headquarters.  Dozens of ANTIFA and BLM agitators gathered in Downtown Los Angeles for a demonstration near the LAPD headquarters on Monday night.  At one point, 'mostly NOT peaceful' protesters were occupying streets and gathering in front of the headquarters.  Some burned an American flag and windows were smashed at a building near where the group was gathered.  [Video clip]

In rooting for the virus, the Left is just like Hitler.  The Left now actively roots for the virus to kill people they don't like, such as President Trump.  Drunk on their fantasy, they hope that his death is painful and humiliating and that his wife dies too.  They express their sick sentiments not just in the dark recesses of their troubled minds and not just over bad frou-frou coffee at Starbucks.  They boast of their wicked wish openly to the world. [...] These are the people who, simultaneously, are addicted to signaling their virtue by driving electric cars, banning plastic straws and turning our once-great cities into burning anarchy zones and vagrant toilets.

What lovely people!
Academics Call For Trump To 'Die A Long, Lingering, Painful Death Alone'.  Sarah Churchwell, who serves as a Professor of American Literature and Public Understanding of the Humanities at the University of London, shared to her over 33,000 Twitter followers that she wants President Trump to "die a long, lingering, painful death while we prosecute his children, his vicious wife, and his entire [...] administration".  The Chair for the Public Understanding of the Humanities Department continued her public wishes for President Trump's death, labeling a tweet from David Rothkopf, a Professor at institutions such as Georgetown and Columbia, "correct."  Rothkopf's tweet appears to be an allegory attacking President Trump's coronavirus response, insisting "don't lament the fate of the arsonist who is singed while burning down your home".

Dallas Police Dept. headquarters vandalized.  Texas police are questioning community members following the vandalism of the Dallas Police Department headquarters.  According to investigators, the incident occurred Thursday night when protesters covered the walls and windows of the police department building in red hand prints. [...] Shortly before the damage was discovered, a group of roughly 30 people had gathered outside the building for unknown reasons.  Less than a mile away, the Dallas Police Association building was also defaced with similar markings.

Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama alumna Zara Rahim weighs in on Trump's COVID19 diagnosis with the grace you'd expect.  Libs are having a normal one following Donald Trump's COVID19 diagnosis.  And by "normal," we of course mean "awful."  There's been no shortage of nasty takes from the Left — as well as conspiracy theories — but some takes are extra-nasty.  Like this now-deleted tweet from former Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama staffer Zara Rahim: [...]

Speculation mounts about the source of President Trump's illness.  [Scroll down]  Lin Wood, a high-profile lawyer representing Nick Sandman and Kyle Rittenhouse, tweeted, "Many leaders in administration of @realDonaldTrump are quarantined by what almost appears to almost be targeted strike of Covid-19."  He later tweeted, "There are no coincidences.  Zero.  None.  Hard stop."  Deanna Lorraine, who ran for Congress against Nancy Pelosi, also picked up the theme of a "targeted strike" in her tweet, "Does anyone else find it odd that no prominent Democrats have had the virus but the list of Republicans goes on and on?"  And Omar Navarro, a Republican politician in California, developed the theme:  "1. RBG dies.  2. Trump announces he will nominate new justice before election.  3. Pelosi makes "Arrow in our quivers comment to stop him."  Week later Trump, his top aide, his campaign manager, two Senators all come down with COVID[.]  5. Schumer immediately requests to delay nomination." [...] In the almost four years since Trump has become president, Republicans have suffered three potentially mass fatality events.

Most of the Leftwing Media Tweets Out Gloating Death Wishes for Trump, Then Deletes It and Hides the Evidence.  When people tell you who they are, listen to them. [...] Here's a thread of Blue Ticks praying for Trump's death.  Update:  Twitter is now blocking the posts found there!  They're not blocking the death wishes, but the person gathering up the death wishes to expose the left!  You can wish death on the president at Twitter — but you're not allowed to expose the death-wishers.

Hemingway: We Should Pray, Avoid Unnecessary Hysteria In Reacting To Trump COVID-19 News.  Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway responded to the news of President Donald Trump and the first lady's positive coronavirus diagnosis on "Fox and Friends" Friday morning, noting she was "genuinely disappointed" to see many people cheering and responding to the news with glee.  "I was disappointed — genuinely disappointed — to see the glee with which some people responded to this news," Hemingway said, referring to a number of political figures and verified Twitter users tweeting comments such as, "I hope he dies."

Survey Finds Disturbing Results On How Democrats Feel About Trump's Coronavirus Diagnosis.  A new poll released late this week revealed that a large percentage of Democrat voters are "happy" or "excited" over the news that President Donald Trump has been infected with the coronavirus, which originated in China.  "General shock and concern over the commander in chief's positive diagnosis were the most dominant voter emotions, according to the new poll:  2 in 5 said the word 'surprised' described them 'very' or 'somewhat' well, while a similar share said the same of the word 'worried,'" Morning Consult reported.  "The emotion with the largest partisan gap was sadness.

Poll: 40% of Democrats 'Happy' Trump Contracted the Chinese Coronavirus.  Forty percent of Democrats are "happy" that President Trump contracted the Chinese coronavirus, according to a Morning Consult/Politico survey released on Friday [10/2/2020] — less than 24 hours from the official confirmation of his positive test results. [...] Additionally, 55 percent indicated that they do not trust the president to provide accurate updates on his health, although 44 percent said they trust White House physician Dr. Sean Conley to provide accurate updates.

Satanic Imagery, Curses Appear with Trump's Tweet on COVID Diagnosis.  The public response to President Donald Trump's positive COVID-19 diagnosis went a step beyond the malicious Friday morning, as strange accounts flooded the social media announcement with Satanic imagery and apparent curses.  Trump had taken to Twitter on Thursday evening to directly inform the nation that he and first lady Melania Trump had both contracted the coronavirus and would be quarantining at the White House, effective immediately.

Celebs Pile On the Hate After Trump Transferred to Walter Reed.  Hollywood elites have refused to stop heckling President Donald Trump following his revelation Friday that he and First lady Melania tested positive for COVID-19.  Unencumbered by empathy or decorum, wealthy elites used the coronavirus to attack the president in sniggering fashion even after he was transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center.  "Praying for Trump's speedy recovery so he can go to jail," actor Michael Ian Black said, setting the tone for the torrent of hate from the Hollywood left.

Some Business Leaders Should Face A Firing Squad, Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo Suggests In Angry Tweet.  Many harsh words are traded on Twitter each day.  Dick Costolo, the former CEO of the company, added some of his own tonight [10/1/2020].  Costolo was responding to a debate that has consumed tech's elite on Twitter over the past few days, an argument about whether the industry should actively promote social justice causes and encourage political conversations at work.  Costolo's comments had the effect of dumping a jerrycan's worth of fuel on the fire.  "Me-first capitalists who think you can separate society from business are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution," he tweeted.  "I'll happily provide video commentary."  Costolo's extraordinary language — suggesting he'd like to see some of his peers face a firing squad — was jarring and reinforced the profoundly unusual and troubling circumstances that have enveloped corporate America this year.

Texas State Rep:  Hard to Imprison Trump If He Dies from Coronavirus.  Texas House of Representatives member Gene Wu (D-Houston) lamented on Twitter Friday evening [10/2/2020] that it would be "hard to serve a prison sentence" if President Donald Trump dies of Coronavirus.  Not long after, the tweet was deleted and replaced with well wishes for a full recovery.  The southwest Houston politician did not offer an apology for the original statement.

Photojournalist Seeking To Expose White Supremacists During Riots Discovers Something Much DifferentThe New York Times' Farah Stockman penned a column last Wednesday about the experience of Jeremy Lee Quinn, who started photographing a Black Lives Matter protest in Santa Monica, California, on May 31.  Upon arrival, he saw looters running out of stores carrying shoeboxes as masked men wearing black supervised the thefts.  The photographer saw a black-clad white man shatter a store window using a crowbar the next day, although he did not steal anything from the store.  Quinn began reviewing videos of riots across the country and saw that other groups dressed in a similar fashion were engaging in the same type of activities.  After he noticed the similarities between groups operating in different cities, he decided to infiltrate one of the protests.  He believed that he would find that he was dealing with white supremacists engaging in racially-motivated violence.  But it did not take long before he realized he had linked up with a group of "insurrectionary anarchists."

Hey Joe Biden, If Antifa Is an 'Idea,' Who Is Burning Down American Cities?  In the first presidential debate on Tuesday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden cited FBI Director Christopher Wray in claiming that "antifa's an idea, not an organization."  The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) released a powerful ad exposing just how absurd Biden's statement was, in light of the violent and deadly riots across America this summer.  "If Antifa is only an idea then who is burning down our cities, assaulting our law enforcement officers, and causing the violence we've seen over the last four months?" Adam Piper, RAGA's executive director, asked in a statement.  "Biden's remarks don't come as a surprise to anybody who has paid attention to the Democrats' recent rhetoric.  As lives and livelihoods are being destroyed by lawless liberal mobs across the country, Democrat attorneys general are either encouraging the violence or downplaying its existence," Piper warned.  "Voters this November must hold Democrats up and down the ballot accountable for their recklessness and incitement of this violence."

Trump haters rejoicing in his testing positive for COVID-19.  Some prominent Donald Trump-haters — including "The Wire" actor Dominic West and a former spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton — are openly rejoicing over the president catching COVID-19.  West, 50, told "Good Morning Britain" on Friday that he felt "joy" at the news of Trump's illness.  Ex-spokeswoman Zara Rahim, who has also worked for Barack Obama and Vogue magazine, said in a since-deleted tweet that she "hopes he dies."

Who are the Proud Boys?  In Tuesday's presidential debate, moderator Chris Wallace tried to corner President Trump:  "Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we saw in Portland?"  "Sure." responded Trump, before noting that all the violence he saw was the fault of ANTIFA and other left-wing groups.  Both Wallace and Biden then implied that white supremacists and Proud Boys were responsible for the violence in Kenosha and Portland, which Trump rebutted by referring to ANTIFA.  "ANTIFA is an idea, not an organization." Biden responded.

Portland Shield Maiden Attempts To Block Police Motorcycle Officer From Pursuing Vehicle.  Its the old story you've heard so many times before — Police Officer on a motorcycle pulls up to two cars blocking a public street to protect protesters.  As the Officer speaks with the occupants of one car, a crowd of protesters moves in around him and begins to interfere with him in the performance of his duties.  The driver of the car takes advantage of the opportunity to drive off.  The Officer disengages from the crowd and gets on his motorcycle to pursue the vehicle.  A "Shield Maiden" jumps in front of the motorcycle to impede his efforts to follow the car.  The Police Officer runs over the Shield Maiden. [...] The woman was injured.  Do I feel bad for her?  Not really.

The Editor says...
If she shows up at a hospital, she should be arrested.

With Trump's COVID diagnosis, leftists are showing their inner ugliness.  At 1:00 a.m. on Friday, President Trump notified the world that he and Melania have tested positive for the Wuhan virus.  All decent people should hope he recovers quickly because he is a fellow human being and because he is the President of the United States of America.  The left, however, has a massive cohort of indecent people.  Within minutes of Trump's announcement, leftists, many of whom are clearly Biden supporters, went on the ugliest Twitter rampage I've ever seen.

The Truth About Today's Anarchists.  [Jeremy Lee Quinn] arrived to find young people pouring out of the store, shoeboxes under their arms.  But there was something odd about the scene.  A group of men, dressed entirely in black, milled around nearby, like supervisors.  One wore a creepy rubber Halloween mask.  The next day, Mr. Quinn took pictures of another store being looted.  Again, he noticed something strange.  A white man, clad in black, had broken the window with a crowbar, but walked away without taking a thing.  Mr. Quinn began studying footage of looting from around the country and saw the same black outfits and, in some cases, the same masks.  He decided to go to a protest dressed like that himself, to figure out what was really going on.  He expected to find white supremacists who wanted to help re-elect President Trump by stoking fear of Black people.  What he discovered instead were true believers in "insurrectionary anarchism."

Antifa Thugs Arrested In Louisville Also Attacked 2017 Charlottesville Rally.  Did Soros Pay Them?  Where Is FBI?  Recently, I pointed out that the Antifa groups that attacked the 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville VA were also key to this summer's BLM riots.  Now arrests during the current Breonna Taylor riots in Louisville KY have proved my point: notably Sean Gerwing Liter and his girlfriend Holly McGlawn-Zoller — who was notoriously caught In a video clip unloading a U-Haul filled with riot supplies. [...] Holly McGlawn-Zoller and Sean Gerwing Liter are both co-founders of Louisville Anti-Racist Action, an integral part of the Antifa Torch Network, explicitly known for being "militant"[.] [...] Video footage shows that Zoller's riot shields and barricades were used in violent brawls against law enforcement.

California prosecutor:  Driver tried to kill Trump supporters.  The organizer of a Southern California rally against police brutality and racism was charged with attempted murder Tuesday [9/29/2020] for driving her car into counterprotesters and running over a woman's head.  Tatiana Turner deliberately drove into a crowd of President Donald Trump's supporters with the intent to kill the woman and also seriously injured a man who broke his leg, Orange County prosecutors said.

Antifa protester who attacked Trump supporter pleads guilty to assault.  An "Antifa" street thug can now look forward to continuing his fight — from jail.  David Campbell, 32, copped a plea for his role in a 2018 beatdown outside the Night for Freedom party in Manhattan organized by right-wing activist Mike Cernovich.  Campbell pleaded guilty to two counts of felony assault and will be sentenced on Oct. 23 to 18 months in the slammer, reps for Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. told The [New York] Post.  Campbell was arrested near the venue, a nightclub at West 50th Street and 12th Avenue on Jan. 20 2018, after he punched and choked a 56-year-old man he had followed out of the event, police said.  He was one of about 80 Antifa agitators protesting the gathering.

Teenager arrested during Capitol Hill riots suspected in arson attack on East Precinct.  KOMO News has learned a teenager arrested for one of the fires set during recent riots on Capitol Hill is suspected of additional serious crimes.  This comes amid growing concern and frustration that people accused of serious crimes during protests aren't being held accountable.  19-year-old Jacob Greenburg faced a judge Monday after Seattle Police said he lit dumpsters on fire during the 'Every Night Direct Demonstration' last weekend.  Now, according to court documents, Greenburg is a, "strong suspect for another arson attack on the East Precinct," where several people threw Molotov cocktails Sept. 1 at the precinct while officers were inside.

Portland Mugshots: 30 Arrested Following Saturday's Protests.  Authorities arrested 30 people on Saturday night in Portland after a relatively calm day of protests, despite dueling demonstrations which Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said were "free from serious violence."  Gov. Kate Brown (D) declared a state of emergency prior to the expected dueling protests in the city on Saturday.


David Hogg Apologizes For Denouncing Violence, Saying His Message Only Applies To 'Young White People'.  David Hogg, the 20-year-old anti-gun activist who attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the school shooting in 2018, criticized violence as a way to "seize power" in a Monday tweet thread — and was then forced to apologize to a Twitter mob of angry left-wing activists.  Hogg wrote in his original Tweet, "We must not fall for the slander espoused by those in power that says violence will solve our problems, they only say that so they can have an excuse to grow their authoritarianism."

Portland Police Mopping The Streets With ANTIFA Terrorists.  Portland, Oregon:  Officers went in hard pushing back protesters and rioters — specifically targeting the sea of live-streamers and Antifa fake press.  As seen before when going full ape on rioters it brings collateral damages in the form of real press getting caught in the middle of it.  [Video clip]

Black Lives Matter supporter charged with attempted murder for driving her car through group of Trump supporters.  A Black Lives Matter supporter was arrested and charged with attempted murder after she reportedly drove her car through a crowd of Trump supporters in California.  Black Lives Matter-aligned protesters attending a "Caravan for Justice" event clashed with Trump supporters Saturday afternoon in Yorba Linda, California, which reached a tipping point when Tatiana Turner, 40, allegedly drove her sedan through the group of Trump supporters.  Turner was reportedly in the area to protest in the "Caravan for Justice" over the death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville earlier this year.  Video of the incident was posted to Twitter, garnering hundreds of thousands of views.

Seattle ANTIFA Try To Create A New CHOP/CHAZ, Police Storm In As Fires Are Lit Everywhere.  People have smashed windows and set fires in Seattle after a protest on Saturday night [9/26/2020].  Seattle Police have arrested seven people for assault and property damage.  SPD says people in the group have set fires at 11th and Pine Street.  They're asking people to avoid the area.  They issued a crowd dispersal order in the area due to "public safety concerns."   About an hour later, SPD issued a second order for dispersal at 11th and Olive over fires.  Seattle Fire was able to extinguish both fires.  [Video clip]

Skyline News Reporter In NC Is Surrounded By ANTIFA/BLM Thugs, Eventually Knocked Out.  A well-known local figure was seriously injured during protests in downtown Asheville on Wednesday night [9/23/2020].  Chad Nesbitt, the administrator of SKYline News on Facebook, was livestreaming protests that erupted following a grand jury's decision to not charge Louisville, Kentucky police for the killing of Breonna Taylor when the incident occurred.  A statement from a Mission Hospital spokesperson said Nesbitt suffered a traumatic brain injury and is in serious, but stable, condition.  [Video clip]

The Upside-Down World of the Woke.  After a grand jury decision yielded no indictments for murder against the officers involved in Breonna Taylor's death, social justice warriors sprang into action.  Strategically placed U-Haul vehicles, full of protest signs and riot shields, were located by the rioters after the decision was announced.  Like so many other American cities in 2020, the city of Louisville was beset by arson, thievery, and violence at the hands of woke mobs, AKA Democratic Party voters.

San Diego ANTIFA Terrorize Restaurant Patrons, One Man Stands Up To Them, Gets Beaten.  ANTIFA was out in full force in downtown San Diego this weekend after the Breonna Taylor decision.  Patrons to several eateries were terrorized and bullied.  One man just trying to enjoy his night pushed back and was promptly beaten down to the ground.  [Video clip]

Life In a Blue City.  In the video below, filmed in Hollywood, a Prius driver is stopped by a mob of Antifa/BLM criminals.  They try to haul him out of his car, but he gets away.  They pursue him in multiple vehicles, and pickup cuts him off.  Again the criminals try to assault him, and again he saves his life by driving away.  The video ends with the victim being arrested and handcuffed by the police.  [Video clip]

We're in the Midst of a Violent Revolution Started by the Left, Not by Us!  The rioting and the looting, the destruction of private property, all of this is happening because it's being committed by people on the left.  Those are the people engaged in this activity.  They are the ones looting.  They are the ones firebombing.  They are the ones that are destroying.  They're the ones threatening.  They are the ones literally trying to grab people out of their cars and beat them up.  They are the people who are attacking people in public, in restaurants and other places and harassing them and bullying them and threatening them physically.  This is all being done by people on the left, and it's all being done by people who are going to vote Democrat.

EPA Chief Threatens to Pull Offices Out of NYC Over 'Unwarranted, Violent Activity'.  On the heels of the Department of Justice deeming New York City and two other U.S. locations "anarchist jurisdictions," Environmental Protections Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler is threatening to pull its offices out of Lower Manhattan over concerns about the safety of its employees.  "If you cannot demonstrate that EPA employees will be safe accessing our City offices, then I will begin the process of looking for a new location for our headquarters outside of the City that can maintain order," Wheeler wrote in a blistering letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio.  The EPA administrator blasted the Democrats for failing to act during the July "Occupy City Hall" protests that not only made the building inaccessible to employees but damaged the office and other buildings.

Kentucky lawmaker arrested on rioting charge, accused of setting fire to public library.  Kentucky State Representative Attica Scott was arrested Thursday night during a Black Lives Matter protest that turned into a riot.  Scott is the author of Breonna's Law.  She was booked on three counts after failing to disperse when police ordered her to do so.  The three counts are one count of unlawful assembly, one count of failure to disperse, and one count of riot in the first degree.  The arrest report alleges she "caused damage at multiple locations, including setting fire to the Louisville Public Library." She was one of a large group of protesters who refused to disperse.  The protesters were seeking sanctuary at First Unitarian Church.  Scott's daughter was also arrested.

Kentucky state Rep. Attica Scott charged with felony rioting.  Kentucky state Rep. Attica Scott was arrested and charged with felony rioting Thursday night [9/24/2020] during a second night of violent protests sparked by the grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case.  Louisville Metro Police Department investigators said Ms. Scott, a freshman Democrat, was part of a group who caused property damage to multiple locations and tried to start a fire in the Louisville Free Public Library's downtown branch.  Ms. Scott, the state's only Black female legislator, told The Courier Journal following her release from jail Friday that she is "disgusted and offended" by the allegations.

DOJ Announces Mass Charges for Suspects They Say Committed Crimes 'Under the Guise' of Peaceful Protest.  The Department of Justice announced Thursday [9/24/2020] that more than 300 people are now facing federal charges stemming from the violence that has occurred in cities across the country since May.  In a news release, the department said individuals in 29 states and the District of Columbia would face federal charges related to a wide range of crimes.  The crimes in question, according to the release, were "committed adjacent to or under the guise of peaceful demonstrations."

Where was he in July?
Al Sharpton encourages demonstrators to keep protesting, but 'keep it nonviolent'.  Left-wing activist Al Sharpton had a "message" for social justice demonstrators who have been protesting after a Kentucky grand jury's decision on the case of Breonna Taylor.  The MSNBC host urged activists to "continue protesting" during an interview Thursday [9/24/2020] with anchor Hallie Jackson, but as downtown Louisville descended into a second night of protests, sometimes turning violent, Sharpton suggested that people keep the demonstrations "nonviolent."

Seattle police officer attacked by mob, hit in back of head with baseball bat.  Seattle police are searching for a suspect accused of striking an officer in the head with a baseball bat during riots Wednesday night sparked by the death of Breonna Taylor.  Shocking video on social media shows an officer on a bicycle falling to the ground as black-clad protesters cheer.  In the video, as the officer tries to get up, a demonstrator pelts him with an orange traffic cone and another grabs his bike.  As the officer is trying to wrestle his bike away from the protester, another man in a gas mask runs up behind him and cracks him in the back of the head with a baseball bat, the video shows.

Portland Protesters Threaten to Burn Down Home for Displaying an American Flag.  Protesters in Portland, many of whom have taken their activism to residential areas of the city, threatened to burn down a home for displaying an American flag.  The city has experienced well over 100 days of protests, and in that time demonstrators have moved into residential areas of Portland.  Terrance Moses, a black veteran who runs a nonprofit in Portland, said he observed protesters marching in the streets of his neighborhood.  However, the demonstration took a turn after activists noticed an American flag displayed on one of the homes.

America [is] in peril if RBG's SCOTUS seat is not filled before the election.  Rioters showed up outside of McConnell's home in Kentucky.  Police arrested at least one person.  Twitter has lit up with threats of physical violence if Republicans proceed.  This threat of physical violence is precisely why Republicans must proceed.  This violence is terrorism, and the purpose of terrorism is to force people to alter their own behavior.  When a church or synagogue is bombed, the appropriate response is for people to flood their churches and synagogues.  When Palestinian suicide bombers blow up Israeli Jews to advance their agenda, the Israeli Defense Force cracks down hard to suppress that agenda.  The more the left resorts to criminal behavior, the more Republicans must be emboldened to restore law and order.  A great way to do that is to appoint judges who will ensure that those trying to destabilize the American way of life are severely punished.

Police: 77-year-old veteran attacked for wearing MAGA hat.  A 77-year-old military veteran described how he was attacked in Red Bluff, apparently because he was wearing a 'Make America Great Again' (MAGA) hat supporting President Donald Trump.  The attack happened Friday, September 18 in broad daylight at the Red Bluff post office.  The victim did not want to be identified.  He told KRCR-TV the attack caught him completely by surprise.  He was wearing a MAGA hat and a 'Back the Blue' mask with a blue line in support of police.  He was approached by a man and woman.

Leftists Vandalize Minnesota Trump Supporter's Garage Then Torch His Vehicles and Camper.  A Trump supporter woke up on Wednesday [9/23/2020] after the sound of an explosion to see his garage and vehicles on fire.  The Minnesota Trump supporter lost his garage, two vehicles and a camper in the arson.

Are Liberals Responsible For the Consequences of Their Death Threats?  Incendiary and violent language is used constantly by liberals, including the most important Democratic politicians.  Thus, no one should have been surprised when Bernie Sanders volunteer James Hodgkinson tried to assassinate a group of Republican House members in 2017, and would have succeeded in killing Steve Scalise but for the miracles of modern medicine.  Since Hodgkinson's assassination attempt, things have only gotten worse.  Implied or explicit death threats from liberals, not just random nobodies on Twitter and Facebook but people with standing in the liberal world, have become rather common. [...] In today's world, that is no laughing matter.  One American city after another has gone up in flames set by left-wing arsonists.  Violence by BLM and Antifa is rife.  Talk of "burning America down" is in the air — again, not just on the "dark internet," but on CNN.

U-Haul riot supplies
Breonna Taylor Protesters Run to Parked U-Haul Full of Supplies After Charges Against Cop Announced.  Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced Wednesday that there will be no charges filed against two of the Louisville police officers involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor, while the third is being charged with "wanton endangerment." [...] Chaos immediately erupted after charges were announced.  Breonna Taylor protesters ran over to a parked U-Haul containing supplies for a (possibly violent) demonstration.  According to the reporter on the scene, the U-Haul contained signs, shields, water etc.


Bullets Over Louisville.  [Scroll down]  The time has come to say clearly what many of us have muttered for a long time:  BLM, the Marxist-led Black Lives Matter, is the modern version of the KKK.  The skin colors may be different but the murderous instincts and racist loathing are the same.  The veneer of social justice is less than paper thin.  "No justice, no peace," is the hollowest slogan imaginable.  It's all about acting out like a bunch of crazies in a Hieronymus Bosch painting, except now they're drugged out on fentanyl, meth or whatever.  Evil is on the march in this country.  The question is who is putting the rioters, looters, and destroyers up to their mayhem?  Who, for example, rented the U-Haul from which, video shows, all sorts of ad hoc weaponry was disgorged to the supposedly peaceful protestors before the Taylor decision came down?  And who paid that person and so on?  It should all be tracked down now.

Woman who rented the U-Haul full of weapons in Louisville may have ties to Soros.  Following the Breonna Taylor decision Wednesday afternoon, a U-Haul truck began handing out supplies to Antifa and BLM protestors.  But, where did the U-Haul come from, and what was inside?  The answers may shock you.  The U-Haul filled with shields, riot gear, signs and weapons was rented by a George Soros-connected "bail disruptor" by the name of Holly Zoller.  According to The Right Scoop, a U-Haul employee leaked the logs that show she was the one who rented the truck.

Identified: Woman who rented U-Haul handing out weapons and shields in Louisville may have Soros ties.  It turns out that the U-Haul we reported on earlier passing out signs, shields and weapons for rioters in Louisville was rented by a George Soros-connected "Bail Disruptor".  According to GWP, a U-Haul employee leaked the logs that show Holly Zoller was the one who rented the truck:  [Photo]  Here's Zoller's bio which shows she works for the "Bail Project":  [Photo]  Here's a photo of her on the U-Haul:  [Photo]  Now how do we get from here to Soros?  GWP posted this screenshot of the woman who is the Community Outreach Director the Bail Project and it clearly states she was/is a Soros Justice Fellow:  [Photo]

U-Haul that supplied riot gear to Louisville protesters reportedly rented by Soros-connected bail project.  The U-Haul truck captured on video distributing riot gear for Louisville protesters following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case was reportedly tied to the Louisville Bail Initiative, a left-wing activist group stacked with George Soros Justice Fellows.  Almost immediately after the grand-jury announcement, protesters swarmed a U-Haul truck in a parking lot and took out riot gear, weapons, gas masks, and anti-police signs to use during clashes with police.  Multiple media outlets posted videos on Twitter, with many users commenting that the activists had prepared to protest no matter what happened.  [Video clip]

Dem Officials Lash Out At Trump Over Designation Of Cities As "Anarchist Jurisdictions".  Democrat mayors who have allowed their cities to be overrun by criminals and wrecked by rioters are furious that the federal government would hold them accountable.  On Monday [9/21/2020], Attorney General William Barr followed through on his word by labeling Portland, Seattle, and New York as "anarchist jurisdictions" cities that would deprive the cities of federal funding.  It was a decisive move by the Trump administration to restore order in areas where law-abiding citizens are being terrorized by violent anarchists and street thugs while local officials handcuff and defund the police.

NYT Discovered Protesters/Antifa Are Harassing Residential Neighborhoods, Even Threatening to Burn Down Couple's Home.  Sounds like The NY Times may have just discovered Antifa in Portland, so we wanted to take note of that fact.  Also they've discovered Antifa has moved into harassing people in residential neighborhoods.  [Tweets]  Now of course Antifa has been in residential neighborhoods for months bothering people and the Times is identifying these people as "protesters against police brutality."  But they do mention Antifa in the story and how Antifa in black bloc are involved.  So we welcome the Times for finally catching up to at least part of the story.

Contrary to appearances, sometimes karma does get leftists.  What's been frustrating for four years is that Democrats are escaping well-deserved consequences.  Those behind the Russia hoax, which is easily the most serious political scandal in American history, have not only walked free, they've gotten rich through book deals and speaking engagements.  In America's Democrat-run cities, Soros-funded prosecutors won't charge people who have acted violently and, often, seditiously.  This sense of karmic passes may explain the enthusiasm for a video showing a driver so busy signaling her disdain for Trump supporters that she crashes into another car — only to learn that the police were eyewitnesses. [...] This video is one more in a series of videos showing screaming, white, leftist women.  At the beginning of the Black Lives Matter protests, I wrote that leftism harms white women.  I included in that article several videos showing deranged, self-righteous women.  With the election drawing near, it's getting worse.

Crazed Woman Frantically Flips Off Trump Rally, Then Something Hilarious Happens.  Friends don't let their friends drive while suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.  Unfortunately for the woman in this video, she must not have any friends willing to speak sanity into her life.  Upon seeing a Trump rally on the side of a road, she decided it'd be a great idea to let her foot off the brake, hang out the window, and frantically throw up the bird at people.  That didn't go well.  Be sure and watch to the end because it gets even better.  [Video clip]

Pascale
Ricin suspect was a "solution finder" — used the hashtag 'killTrump'.  The ricin story is ignored by the media.  Ricin is a deadly poison and it was sent to President Trump in a letter but intercepted before it got to his desk.  A woman is being held in connection to this crime.  Pascale Ferrier is a 53-year-old Canadian woman who was arrested in connection with a letter containing ricin that was sent to President Donald Trump last week, CBC reported.


University Professor Suspended After Wishing Trump Supporters Die Of COVID Before Election Day.  Marshall University has suspended one of its faculty members after a video clip in which she says she wished Trump supporters would catch the COVID-19 virus and die before the election went viral on social media.  Professor Jennifer Mosher, of the school's Biology department, was teaching a virtual class session Wednesday when she commented on supporters of President Donald Trump at an indoor political rally not wearing masks.  [Video clip]

Governor DeSantis wants rioters and supportive cities to pay the price.  As every parent knows, if you don't instantly penalize bad behavior, the child will continue the behavior.  The same holds true for criminals.  That's why, in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis held a press conference on Monday announcing that he's proposing a new law that will impose instant, mandatory, and severe penalties for the destructive and dangerous behaviors we've seen across America as BLM and Antifa have taken to the streets.  His goal is to prevent Florida communities from suffering as Minneapolis and Kenosha have.

Florida Governor DeSantis Proposes Law with Harsh Penalties for Rioters including 6-Months Jail Time for Hitting a Cop, Cutting Off Welfare.  Florida's Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced a law he is proposing where rioters will face harsh penalties and city leaders who encourage rioting will be liable for damages. [...] For those who can't tell the difference between protests and riots, a Florida sheriff provided guidance:  [Video clip]

DeSantis proposes law to quash 'disorderly assemblies' in wake of Floyd, other protests.  Florida leaders plan to crack down on protesters involved in what Gov. Ron DeSantis called "disorderly assemblies," including making it a felony to block a road, topple monuments or gather in a small group where violence breaks out.  DeSantis on Monday proposed a tough new law, which opponents swiftly labeled unconstitutional, in response to demonstrations that erupted nationwide after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.  The legislation will be filed for the next session that convenes in March. [...] DeSantis, a Republican, said anyone arrested during protests would not be eligible for bail before their initial court hearing.  There also would be efforts to identify any groups that are funding or organizing such protests.

The Riot Party.  America's present crisis is driven in large part by the Left's rejection of the rule of law.  Those in charge of the riots are not merely blackmailing their fellow citizens on particular issues like defunding the police.  Rather, they seek to overthrow the electoral process itself. [...] Hysteria has supplanted reason in the public square; public discourse no longer exists.  The tactic leftists were advocating in 1995 has today become commonplace.  Riots are not only being justified: they are being made into a staple of our judicial system and our public life, the threat of them used to install routine fear and racial supremacy in our homes and cities.

Portland Antifa Rioters Break Into Starbucks and Chipotle, Calling It a 'Big Sale'.  On Saturday night, an antifa mob of about 200 people marched in Portland, smashing windows at a Starbucks and a Chipotle, forcing a truck driver to make a black power salute, and at one point burning a "Thin Blue Line" flag, chanting "blue lives splatter." [...] The Portland Police Bureau reported that a march of roughly 200 people began around 9 p.m. on Saturday evening.  "The group marched around in the street for several hours, stopping at various locations to demonstrate and in some cases damage property and apply graffiti.  Individuals in the group broke windows on businesses, including a bank in the 400 block of Southwest Harrison Street, a restaurant in the 1900 block of Southwest Broadway, and coffee shop in the 1000 block of Southwest 6th Avenue," the police reported.

DOJ declares New York, Portland and Seattle 'anarchist jurisdictions,' moves to cut federal funding.  The Justice Department on Monday declared New York, Portland and Seattle "anarchist jurisdictions," the first step toward revoking federal funding from those cities.  President Trump earlier this month ordered federal agencies to look for ways to cut off federal funding in Democratic-led cities besieged by violence this summer.  The Justice Department's move escalates the criticism Mr. Trump has been leveling at Democrat leaders, blaming them for the rising crime and violence.  The list of cities is expected to be updated periodically, the Justice Department said.

Arrests made at Mitch McConnell's Kentucky home after hostile protesters defy police.  Angry liberal Democrats carrying "Black Lives Matter, "Wanted" and "Revolution" signs showed up outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home in Louisville, Kentucky this Saturday [9/19/2020] to protest.  They were upset over his decision to abide by hundreds of years of established Senate precedent and move forward with nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice during an election year.

Attorney General Barr Is Serious About Federal Prosecutors Using the Sedition Statute.  [Scroll down]  We know from anecdotal information that federal law enforcement has placed undercover agents inside the protest groups, likely to secure telephone numbers and engage in conversations with persons using those numbers to create probable cause to wiretap those phones.  Monitoring phones, email, text messaging, and other forms of communication has certainly helped identify the infrastructure that clearly exists for Antifa and similar groups.  Nearly every night, for over 100 days, Antifa and BLM staged protests on a nightly basis in Portland.  A couple of days after an Antifa supporter, Michael Reinoehl, killed a "rival" agitator from an Antifa opposition group in Portland, Reinoehl himself was shot and killed by officers on a federal task force who were staged outside an apartment where he was hiding.  It seems that not long after, the recognition seemed to set in that the Antifa/BLM organizers and agitators could be easily identified with open-source information, and given the speed with which federal agents were able to pinpoint Reinoehl's location, the organizers and agitators in Portland seem to have decided that going underground is necessary at this moment.

Inside the Free State of George Floyd.  The degradation and decline of the city of Minneapolis proceed apace.  5 Eyewitness News has posted the report by Jay Kolls (video below) from inside the city's "autonomous zone," a/k/a the Free State of George Floyd.  Whatever you do, you don't want to be in need of police help in the Free State of George Floyd [...]  [Video clip]

George Soros is indeed an enabler of U.S. street violence.  Fox News saw a bit of a dust-up this week when Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the House, referred on air to the influences of billionaire George Soros on the violence that's gone forth in the streets of mostly Democrat-controlled communities — only to have his comments shut down.  Censored, some might even say.  Apologies and clarifications soon after came.  But let's be clear and let's stay clear on this:  Soros is indeed diddling in America's political and legal systems.  And his diddling is indeed having a "have at it" effect on those who would take to the streets, with bricks, to express their frustrations with President Donald Trump.  This is no conspiracy theory.  This is no tin foil hat moment.  This is a fact — a traceable, verifiable fact.  What's more, it's not too hard to trace and verify.

Proud Boys Promote Fake Rally to Expose Violent Antifa Lunatics — and it Worked.  The Proud Boys advertised a fake rally in West Philadelphia's Clark Park on Saturday [9/19/2020], causing Antifa to flood the streets.  When the Proud Boys did not show up, they attacked conservative independent media instead.  As the Gateway Pundit reported earlier in the day, the militant leftists attacked two conservatives who were filming the protest.  They also attacked a vehicle they believed to belong to the conservatives, but actually belonged to someone who was there in support of their cause.

Turns Out There's an 'Autonomous Zone' in Minneapolis and It's Blocking Emergency Calls to Victims.  Turns out that like Seattle, there's been a continuing smaller barricaded 'autonomous zone' in Minneapolis that hasn't gotten a lot of attention.  But of course it's not good for the folks in Minneapolis and particular the businesses in the area being occupied.  The owner of an auto repair said he was violently attacked while in his office by someone who came from this nearby zone which they are calling "the free State of George Floyd."

Why So Much Anger?  This year's pre-election rioting, looting, and shootings in many American cities is not only a consequence of the failure or refusal of politicians to fix problems; it is also a failure by too many citizens who look to government to find solutions for things it was never created to address.  It is not the fault of a train that it cannot fly.  A car mechanic should not be blamed because he can't perform open-heart surgery.  Government has a purpose, but it is not to solve problems only an individual can address.  People who are angry at government, instead of looking to Washington, should be looking in the mirror.

Here's Why Blue Check Twitterhawks Are Threatening Violence Over Ginsburg's Supreme Court Seat.  Well, that didn't take too long, did it?  Mere hours after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was announced, progressives on Twitter and other social media platforms had a collective meltdown in response to the reality that that mean guy in the Oval Office might be appointing another judge on the highest court in the land.  True to form, they took to Twitter to express their holy outrage at the thought of having another judge who isn't a rabid progressive take Ginsburg's place.  Some of these intrepid individuals have taken action that only the bravest of us could even consider:  Going on Twitter and calling for political violence from the comfort of their home.  Dr. Jessie Christensen, an Australian astrophysicist, claimed that he would riot if President Trump and Republican members of the Senate push to confirm an appointment. [... But] None of these people will participate in any of the violence they hope to incite with their social media platforms.  If there is more rioting and looting, it'll be done by Antifa peons acting out their faux angst.

The left threatens death, destruction and fire if President Trump dares nominate a replacement for RBG on SCOTUS.  The news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing has driven much of the left bonkers.  They know that President Trump may nominate a constitutionalist replacement and rather than a robust opposition, are vowing death and destruction in response: [...] It's strange stuff, given that they no longer believe in debate, persuasion, or even congressional maneuvers — they just want to menace, burn, and kill, which is the sort of thing totalitarian mobs in nasty third world hellholes do, if not National Socialists in action.  And they speak of it as if they haven't already been to that well once, burning and looting to demonstrate their supposed calls for what they claim to be racial justice, frequently targeting small black-owned buisnesses in inner cities to make their mendacious claims.  Basically, it's full blown civil war they want and like overconfident Confederates, they may be surprised how quickly they get it.  Unlike the Confederates, they lack courage, so it could be over quickly.

Apple helps FBI track down protester accused of firebombing cop cars.  Anyone who believes Apple and the FBI are at an impasse over investigations into the iPhone maker's criminal customers should think again.  In Seattle, Apple has given the feds vital evidence from one of its iCloud users who was arrested for firebombing cop cars during the George Floyd protests in late May.  The case shows how Apple is willing to help even where the context of the crime is controversial, namely the Black Lives Matter protests.  That's despite President Trump and Attorney General William Barr lambasting the company for failing to help track down serious criminals while caving in to the demands of the Chinese government.  Their comments came after Apple said it wouldn't help the government get into the physical iPhones of a Saudi national who shot and killed three on a Pensacola, Florida, naval base in December 2019.  (The FBI hacked into the phones anyway.)

Accused Seattle Looter Now Facing Federal Gun Charges.  Things just went from bad to worse for Al Talaga.  The 32-year old Washington man was already facing charges of looting after he allegedly smashed the windows of a sneaker store in Seattle during riots back on June 1st, and tried to take off with merchandise from the shop.  Now he's facing federal charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, which likely would never have been discovered if he hadn't allegedly decided to go looting in the name of justice.  Once officers arrived at the Sneaker City in downtown Seattle, several witnesses told them that one of the looters had been stashing merchandise in a Dodge Magnum parked nearby.  Police ended up impounding the car, and after a court order, searched the vehicle.  Not only did they find some stolen sneakers, they also found a stolen handgun; a .40 caliber pistol that had been reported stolen from a Tacoma home during a home invasion robbery in 2019.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to Possibly Face Federal Charges Over CHOP/CHAZ.  Heavy emphasis on the use of "possibly" here, but reports are that Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan could face federal charges for her role in encouraging and coddling the CHOP/CHAZ, an "autonomous zone" that ultimately left several people dead, never mind all the destruction and harassment of local businesses.

George Floyd Riots Caused Record-Setting $2 Billion in Damage, New Report Says.  When George Floyd died while in police custody in late May, most agreed his premature death was a tragedy.  Yet the discussion on criminal justice reform that emerged in the weeks after Floyd's passing was quickly overshadowed by the rioting, looting, and violence that broke out in major cities such as Minneapolis, Seattle, and New York.  Dozens of people were killed or injured in the violent unrest, and thousands of businesses and properties, many minority-owned, were looted, torched, or otherwise vandalized.  Only now are we beginning to realize the full cost of the destruction.  New reporting from Axios reveals that the total insured property losses incurred during the George Floyd riots will come in at $1 billion to $2 billion.

Portland riots:  Justice Department considered pursuing charges against city officials in violent unrest.  The Justice Department explored possible criminal or civil charges against local officials in Portland, Ore., after weeks of clashes between federal law enforcement and violent protesters, spokeswoman Kerri Kupec told Fox News.  Kupec declined to comment on whether the department ultimately will bring charges.  She said there were no specific charges in mind, rather, DOJ officials were looking at the way Portland officials "were handling, or not handling" the riots and violence.

Campaign staffer, 17, for Ilhan Omar's Republican congressional opponent is shot and killed in Minneapolis.  A 17-year-old boy who had worked for a Republican congressional candidate running against Democratic Rep Ilhan Omar was shot and killed in an attack outside a gas station on Minneapolis' north side.  A second person who also had worked for Republican Lacy Johnson was wounded in the shooting on Monday [9/14/2020].  Earlier this morning, police in Minneapolis arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting following a high-speed pursuit.  He is now in custody but has yet to be named.

Joe Biden and the Democrats' lies about cops spawned sickening shooting.  The targeted attack on two LA cops last weekend is the inevitable result of the despicable lie Joe Biden and his party have been pushing all summer for political advantage — that police are "systemically" racist murderers of black people.  That lie has driven violent anti-cop BLM-Antifa riots in Democratic cities from New York to Seattle.  Police are demoralized, and resigning in droves, leaving the poorest, most crime-ridden communities less safe.  Violent criminals are emboldened.  Crime rates are surging.  As of Friday, 37 law enforcement officers have been "feloniously killed" — a/k/a murdered — this year, according to the FBI.  That's 25 percent more than the same period last year.  In New York, police response times are delayed.  Who is surprised?  As the riots raged, Democratic mayors and councils voted to abolish, "reimagine" or defund their city's police departments.  A billion dollars was stripped from the NYPD.  American voters don't want this.  That is the case, especially, for black Americans, 81 percent of whom wanted police presence in their community to stay the same or increase, according to a July Gallup poll.

Barr Tells Prosecutors to Consider Charging Violent Protesters With Sedition.  Attorney General William Barr told the nation's federal prosecutors to be aggressive when charging violent demonstrators with crimes, including potentially prosecuting protesters for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government, people familiar with the conversation said.  In a conference call with U.S. attorneys across the country last week, Mr. Barr warned that sometimes violent demonstrations across the U.S. could worsen as the November presidential election approaches.  He encouraged the prosecutors to seek a number federal charges, including under a rarely used sedition law, even when state charges could apply, the people said.  The call underscores the priority Mr. Barr has given to prosecuting crimes connected to months of protests against racial injustice that have at times become violent and led to major property damage, as President Trump has made a broader crackdown on demonstrations a key campaign issue.  U.S. attorneys have broad discretion in what charges they bring.

BLM Thugs Threaten Man Live Streaming, Say They Don't Want Police To Track Their Movements.  This live streamer was stalked and threatened by a group of Black Lives Matter thugs after they noticed he was filming the event in Lancaster.  The group leader yelled through a bullhorn for the man to turn off his phone and stop recording because the group didn't want police to know what they're up to.  The Live Streamer had to flee and ask for help.  [Video clip]

Mostly NOT Peaceful Leftists Attack Pro Trump Vehicles In Sacramento, At Least 3 Of Them Were Injured.  President Trump landed at McClellan Airport on Monday to receive a briefing from state officials on explosive wildfires burning statewide.  During the event, hundreds of people could be seen surrounding the area, with a majority of those gathering were President Trump supporters.  Mostly not peaceful leftist troublemakers tried to attack a police cruiser and here, in this video, several Trump-supporting vehicles were assaulted and taunted by the mob.  [Video clip]

They're Not Gonna Stop.  It would seem that Kamala Harris and Joe Biden have now made explicit what was always implied in their campaign:  as Joe becomes less and less compos mentis, the Democratic proposition on the table becomes, in the words of the candidates themselves, a "Harris-Biden administration."  So it behooves the American people to be as clear as possible not only about who Biden is, but who his VP (read: replacement) pick really is.  Both Biden and Harris have recently issued tepid, nonspecific calls for an end to ongoing street violence.  They don't really mean it of course, which is why they couldn't bring themselves to explicitly name Black Lives Matter or Antifa as the perpetrators and organizers of the ongoing civil unrest.  The reality is that Biden has no ability to fulfill this promise.  The nature of extortion requires the victim have some reasonable assurance that you really can keep his store from burning down.  But Biden could not call off the dogs even if he wanted to, as his own vice-presidential candidate has already told us.

Lancaster Riots Prove the Nationwide Unrest Isn't About 'Police Brutality'.  There is a gigantic, deadly game of "Let's Pretend" going on in America.  Politicians, the media, and activists are all pretending that the violence, the arsons, the beatings, and the mayhem in our city streets actually have a purpose.  They pretend that the mostly peaceful protests are only being made violent by the mere presence of police officers.  The media pretends that the rioters are "enraged" or fed up with "oppression" and "systemic racism" so that the chaos and thuggery is a completely normal response to the problem.  Do these people really believe the riots are all about poor, drug-addled George Floyd?  Do they really think all police are racist and out to kill all black people?  Do they really think the rioters give a hoot about "systemic racism"?  When leftists are not busy denying that the rioters are using the innocent peaceful protests as cover to loot and burn, they are pretending the real problems they want to be addressed are far, far, worse than they actually are.

Poof! The Portland Riots Just Stopped.  Why?  I certainly don't want to tempt these thugs, but it can't go without saying that Portland's 100 plus days of riots appeared to end after Wednesday, September 9th.  That was the last time the Portland Police Bureau warned about protests.  The usual live-streamers decamped to other riots and fires.  By September 10th, the overworked cops from Portland Police Bureau were offered out to assist other agencies.  Suddenly, instead of being required to work the riots lines, they were free. [...] Riot-weary Oregonians aren't necessarily mollified by the concerted effort to shut down these reports.  Until last Wednesday night, they'd seen the antifa rioters and arsonists in action on the news every night in Portland.  And now some of them swore they saw those people in Estacada, Sandy, Molalla and other parts of the burning Clackamas County.  Indeed, documents from the Department of Homeland Security show that whatever antifa rioters are doing, they're doing in concert, organizing with other like-minded people.

Beer bandit BLM protester is charged with harassing diners along with two others.  Three people are now facing criminal charges for harassing diners at a restaurant in Pittsburgh during a Black Lives Matter protest over Labor Day weekend.  Misdemeanor charges were filed against Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24, on Monday [9/14/2020]. [...] Police identified McDowell as the 'ringleader' and said he used a megaphone to scream obscenities at diners sitting outside Sienna Mercato and others passing by, as seen in the video.  McDowell was also accused of getting into an alteration with a McDonald's manager in another protest video that went viral.

Protesters demand cops let themselves be stabbed or shot.  If the nation's police officers walked off the job today, it would be hard to blame them.  Sunday's anti-cop riots in Lancaster, Pa., have made the current de facto rules of engagement clear:  Officers may never defend themselves against lethal force if their attacker is a minority.  They should simply accept being shot or stabbed as penance for their alleged racism.  In Lancaster, an officer responded to a domestic violence call at a residence where a man had stabbed four people last year.  As the officer approached the house, a female escaped out the front door.  A man — the suspect from the previous slashings — then emerged and ran at the officer, brandishing a knife over his head.  The officer shot him, as the officer was by all appearances legally authorized to do, to stop the threat of deadly force.  Twenty-seven-year-old Ricardo Munoz died from the officer's gunfire.

Fox Host's Must-Read Thread Nails Why Rioters Feel Emboldened To Shoot Officers — and How They Can Be Stopped.  "Fox and Friends Weekend" co-host Will Cain took to the Twitter machine Monday morning [9/14/2020] and posted a must-read thread where he pointed out why rioters and others who hate the police feel emboldened to commit these type of despicable acts against members of the law enforcement community — and how they can be stopped.  He started off by referencing the attempted assassinations of the young deputies in L.A. County from Saturday, noting that while we didn't yet know the motivation of the shooter (though it's not hard to guess, considering the "ACAB" environment that infests the city of Los Angeles) that the incident drove him to talk about some inconvenient truths.

Throw away the key:
Lancaster protesters held on whopping $1 million bail each after alleged riots.  A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters — setting their bail at $1 million each — for allegedly rioting in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man.  Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd.  The overnight violence came on the heels of the death of Ricardo Munoz, the mentally ill 27-year-old who was seen on body cam footage charging at a cop with a knife in hand.  The officer shot and killed Munoz Sunday afternoon outside his mother's house in downtown Lancaster.

It Votes Biden Or It Gets The Riots Again.  The quiet part is becoming very loud.  Threats of left-wing political violence if President Trump is reelected have gone from subtext to the plain text.  Writing at The Atlantic, Shadi Hamid warns of "mass unrest and political violence across American cities" if Trump wins.  The Democrats are embracing their inner movie villain:  It votes for Biden, or it gets the riots again.  Not that the rioting and related violence have stopped — from the attempted assassination of cops in Los Angeles to "mostly peaceful" protests in New York, the mayhem continues — but it is less intense than it was earlier in the summer.  Now, prominent outlets of establishment liberalism are warning that the destruction can, and will, be turned up if the nation votes "incorrectly."

Kids at pro-Trump rally pelted with eggs in Wilmington, Delaware, say police.  Delaware State Police are searching for three men accused of pelting young children and adults with eggs at a pro-President Trump rally in Democratic rival Joseph R. Biden's hometown of Wilmington on Sunday [9/13/2020].  Police said three children ages 10, 7, and 5 and three adults ages 41, 44, and 70 were "struck by raw eggs" while attending a "Republican political rally" outside the Crossroads Restaurant.  "The victims were standing on a concrete wall adjacent to westbound Kirkwood Hwy attending the event when they were struck by eggs thrown by three male suspects hanging out of the window of a passing by vehicle," police said in a statement Tuesday.  "The suspects were described as males approximately 20-25 years old and operating a gold or white SUV.  There is no other identifying information at this time."

DHS Has 'Overwhelming' Intel That Portland Violence 'Organized' By 'Violent Antifa Anarchists,' Leaked Email Says.  A leaked email from a former top official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says that the department has "overwhelming intelligence" that the extremist violence in Portland was "organized" by individuals with an ideology categorized as "Violent Antifa Anarchist Inspired" (VAAI).  CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge tweeted out a letter that she obtained that was written by Brian Murphy, former Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis at DHS, that said in July that the violence in Portland had reached a level that officials could no longer state that the violence was "opportunistic" but that it was "organized."  Murphy stated in the email that the individuals who were attacking the federal facilities in the city did so "based on those ideologies."

Candace Owens blames BLM, athletes, media for ambush on L.A. police.  Conservative commentator and BLEXIT founder Candace Owens blamed the Black Lives Matter movement, the media, and athletes for an ambush on two Los Angeles sheriff's deputies on Saturday. [...] Two LASD deputies were ambushed and shot while in their patrol car on Saturday evening.  Both deputies are "fighting for their lives," according to the LASD.  Owens also blamed athletes for the attack.

Lynwood Won't Fire City Manager Who said Shooting Deputies is "Expected".  During these past few months of Black Nationalist cultural terror, people have been fired for the slightest offenses against political correctness.  And I do mean the very slightest.  But you can hold a top position and defend violence, and that's okay.  Jose Ometeotl, the city manager of Lynwood, California, responded to the shooting of two LASD deputies in Compton, with a hateful post, which claimed to disavow violence, but then ranted that, "that communities like Compton have been plagued by deputy gangs that inflict fear and violence in the community.  These deputies murdered, framed and stole from the community just because they could. [...]" [...] After the two deputies were shot, they were brought to a hospital in Lynwood, where Black Lives Matter racists gathered outside to shout, "We hope they die".  Has the city of Lynwood suspended Jose or fired him?  Nah.  They've "disavowed" his comments.

Do you want to be controlled or do you want to be free?  The Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots are about control.  These "activists" want to control the narrative and shift the conversation, any conversation, to always be about their demands.  Some Americans truly desire the types of controls these "activists" are demanding.  They want to be told what to do in an effort to maintain their social justice credibility.  Others want the freedom to drive down a highway with a reasonable expectation that "protesters" aren't causing mayhem and affecting people's lives by blocking the roads.

Antifa and BLM, the Democrat party's stormtroopers.  When the tactics of Black Lives Matter coincide with the ideology of NPR, Americans should realize that the left has crossed yet another line on the indecency scale.  A reporter for an NPR station showed up at the Los Angeles hospital where two sheriff's deputies who had just been shot while sitting in their car were taken.  A BLM crowd had miraculously appeared within minutes to block the emergency entrance, some of them shouting "I hope they [...] die."  Some were vowing to "[...]"  The NPR station's reporter allegedly interfered with the police attempts to control the "protesters."  This is the nadir to which the radicalized Democrat party has brought this nation as the election nears.  Can it get worse?  Most assuredly.

How The 1960s Riots Foreshadow Today's Communist Weaponization Of Black Pain.  [Scroll down]  Elsewhere, dozens of angry protestors surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and his wife Kelley as they left the White House grounds.  Eventually, more police officers arrived and escorted the couple to the safety of their hotel.  Sen. Paul later reported:  "After we got back to our hotel room and some safety we heard something frightening.  The 'protesters' were staying on our floor — including the room next door to us.  They were talking about their mob activities and even saying they thought we were here on this floor.  We had to develop a 3 a.m. plan with the Capitol Police to get to safety."  Paul asks, "Who are these people?  Who paid for their hotel rooms?  Who flew them in?"  What he saw that night led him to conclude, "It's organized.  It's paid for.  It's violent."  Several days later, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf announced the Justice Department had launched an investigation into the organization and funding of the violent protests that have wracked cities across America for months.

$100,000 reward offered in ambush shooting of two deputies in Los Angeles County.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department offered a 100,000 reward Sunday [9/13/2020] in its search for a gunman who walked up to two deputies sitting in their patrol vehicle and shot them multiple times before fleeing.  The lone gunman ambushed the woman and man Saturday night at the Martin Luther King Transit Center in Compton, California, approaching their vehicle from behind and firing several rounds, the department said.  The deputies were in critical condition Sunday after undergoing surgery.  The 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy and the 24-year-old man had graduated from the sheriff's training academy about 14 months ago, sworn in by Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who held a news conference after the shooting.

LA Sheriffs:  NPR Reporter Arrested For 'Interfering' With Cops As They Tried To Control BLM Protests Outside Hospital.  A Los Angeles National Public Radio reporter was arrested early Sunday, Los Angeles County Sheriffs said, after she "interfered" with police trying to prevent alleged Black Lives Matter protesters from storming the hospital where two severely wounded L.A. County Sheriffs deputies were taken following a horrific ambush attack.  Saturday night [9/12/2020], two sheriffs deputies, a 31-year-old female and a 24-year-old male, were shot in what law enforcement officials are calling an "ambush attack," according to earlier reports from The Daily Wire.  The pair were sitting in their parked vehicle outside of a train station when they were approached by a suspect who opened fire without apparent cause, leaving the two deputies severely wounded.

How Detroit's Police Chief Saved His City from Black Lives Matter.  Compared to the conflagrations BLM has incited in cities like Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, New York, Chicago, and even Kenosha, Detroit Will Breathe has been an epic flop.  Drawing mostly small crowds and desperate for media attention, DWB's been stifled from the get-go by Chief Craig's zero-tolerance approach to thugs and looters posing as demonstrators.  The first three nights after George Floyd's death, when radicals — most from out of town and some armed with bricks and railroad spikes — ignored a curfew and tried to turn the city into another Minneapolis, Detroit police pushed back hard, using tear gas and making over 140 arrests.  That quieted things.

The Left's New Martyrology.  [Scroll down]  George Floyd, another "Gentle Giant" whose criminal record included the robbery of a woman at gunpoint, is somewhat more controversial.  There are serious questions as to whether the officers who arrested him fulfilled their responsibility to ensure his safety and well-being once he was in their custody, and we will have to wait for the legal system to determine this.  The "woke" left lost no time, however, in turning Floyd into yet another Horst Wessel with a wide array of posters that portray him as some kind of saint, while universities have established George Floyd scholarships.  Left-wing extremists used Floyd's "martyrdom" as an excuse to re-enact the Night of the Broken Glass in Minneapolis.

Have The Democrats Encouraged Urban Violence?  Democratic politicians are now trying to distance themselves from the rioting, looting, arson and murder that have beset American cities — not because they object on principle, but because urban violence is hurting them in the polls.  But is the Democrats' disavowal of rioting and arson sincere?  This short video reminds us that for years, and more intensively in recent months, Democratic politicians and celebrities have been promoting violence.  [Video clip]

Federal prosecutors take over Seattle protester cases, concerning local attorneys.  This week the U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle announced its eighth arrest related to events during this summer's protests against racism and police brutality.  Defense attorneys say the Justice Department is going out of its way to try to discredit the protests.  But U.S. Attorney Brian Moran said his Seattle office is focused on cases like arson or firearms violations that he says are hurting the protest message.  That includes the big protest in Seattle the night of May 30.  People took guns out of police vehicles and set the cars on fire, leading to three federal cases so far.  The next night, a man was arrested after being accused of striking a police officer in the face with a can of beer, and of carrying an improvised firearm.  Stephanie Knightlinger, a senior deputy prosecutor with the King County Prosecutors Office, said she was preparing to charge that man, Devinare Parker, in King County Superior Court.

Portland Mayor Bans Police Use of Tear Gas After 100 Days of Rioting.  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has banned the use of tear gas on rioters in the Oregon city.  Wheeler, a Democrat who is also Portland's police commissioner, banned the use of tear gas munitions on rioters Thursday, despite ongoing riots that have surpassed the 100-day mark, a press release from his office says.  Wheeler wrote that the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office and the Oregon State Police have used tear gas to quell riots over nearly four months.

The Editor says...
Here's my free advice:  Use the tear gas anyway and let them fire you.  Do your job and let them complain.  If you're fired, sue the city for wrongful termination.  If they want friction, give it to them.  No jury anywhere else in the country would take the city's side in such an argument, and it might also work in Portland.  And if it doesn't, well, you didn't want to work in a city like that anyway.

Man Who Threatened to Kill Trump Supporters Pleads Guilty.  A man who threatened to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and brandished a rifle at a Black Lives Matter protest pleaded guilty to making threats, authorities announced Friday [9/11/2020].  According to court documents, Emmanuel Quinones, 25, posted on Facebook on May 28, "Gonna get some more of these to off racists and MAGA people."

Shador
Richfield man charged with arson of Target Headquarters.  A Richfield man has been federally charged with arson at the Target Headquarters that took place on Aug. 26 during unrest in Minneapolis. [...] According to U.S. Attorney Erica H. MacDonald's office, Shador Tommie Cortez Jackson, 24, was arrested Thursday, Sept. 10 after surveillance video allegedly shows him lighting a fire inside the store.  Jackson made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis on Friday, Sept. 11.  According to the complaint, Jackson was stopped by Richfield police later that night and was in possession of stolen merchandise.  Jackson is scheduled to make his next court appearance on Sept. 16.


Minnesota Man Charged for Allegedly Setting Fire to Target's Headquarters.  A 24-year-old Minnesota man was arrested and charged this week for allegedly lighting Target's headquarters on fire during rioting in Minneapolis on Aug. 26.  During widespread looting following false rumors regarding the death of a homicide suspect, Shador Jackson allegedly used a sign to smash one of the glass doors of the headquarters building, according to court documents.  Authorities said Jackson then entered the building's mail room, where he ignited a fire on the top of a desk before pouring liquid from a bottle onto the fire.  About 5 minutes later, the man ran out of the building.  He was seen walking away on a sidewalk before stopping and looking into the main Target entrance door in the direction of the fire.  Surveillance cameras captured Jackson committing the criminal act, authorities said.

Minnesota Police Group Withdraws Democrat Endorsements After Video of Union Chief Beaten in Effigy.  The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association board has switched its endorsements of Democrat candidates to Republican after one Democrat candidate was purportedly caught on video beating a piñata with the likeness of top police union official Bob Kroll. [...] Brian Peters, who serves as executive director of the police association, expressed concern over DFL caucus' support of Thompson after he was identified as beating the Kroll effigy.  "The endorsements that we rescinded, my issue was those candidates did not stand up to their leadership and put pressure on and ask why are we supporting a candidate who did this in Hugo," Peters said.  "If this is the future of the Democratic Party, my organization is going to support elsewhere," he added.  Peters did not identify which Republicans were endorsed by the police group.

Man arrested and charged with firebombing Republican women's club office.  A California man has been arrested and charged with attempted arson after allegedly trying to firebomb a Republican organization office building.  Police say Carlos Espriu, 23, broke the windows of the East Valley Republican Women Federated office in La Quinta, California, on May 31 before lighting several Molotov cocktails and setting the building on fire, according to Fox News.

Palm Desert man charged with firebombing La Quinta Republican Headquarters.  A Palm Desert man was in custody Thursday and has been charged with the May 31 firebombing of the East Valley Republican Women Federated (EVRWF) office in La Quinta, according to the Department of Justice.  Carlos Espriu, 23, was named in a federal criminal complaint that charged him with attempted arson.

Left-Wing Agitator Arrested for Starting Fire in Washington, Suspected of Starting Two Other Wildfires.  A Washington man with a history of left-wing agitation was arrested Wednesday evening [9/9/2020] after he allegedly started a fire in the brush along a highway near Tacoma.  Jeffrey Acord, 36, was charged for reckless burning in the second degree.  He is now reportedly also a suspect in two other Washington wildfires. [...] The suspected antifa militant has a history of anti-police protesting and encounters with law enforcement, court records show.  According to his Facebook, Acord also attended a Black Lives Matter march in Seattle on June 5 of this year.

President Trump may be battered by the waves, but he will not sink.  [Scroll down]  What ails the left is that leftists believe everything they think, and their thinking is characterized by pomposity and intolerance.  One has to look no farther than Twitter to be clobbered by the gross intolerance of Democrats.  They are rude, profane, wholly without manners or grace.  There are the vicious rioters in the streets whom the Democrats refuse to condemn, and there are the equally vicious boors who drive the contempt in which social media is drowning.  Those often anonymous haters hide behind their not so clever handles like schoolyard bullies who cry for their mothers if their true identities are discovered.  That's when they cry "racism," or "white supremacy," or "white privilege," even if, as most of them are, they are white.  There is nothing more absurd than watching a young white female carrying a Black Lives Matter sign shouting obscenities in the face of a black policeman to illustrate the depth of the left's vacuity.

Portland Bans Facial Recognition Technology to Protect Peaceful Rioters.  Portland has some really, really strange things going on.  On Wednesday [9/9/2020], amid a record-setting season of chaos, arson, vandalism, and violence in the streets, the city decided to ban the use of facial-recognition technology by local law enforcement. [...] What's the technology good for?  Well, it "could help with tasks ranging from solving crime to checking student attendance at school."  But it "comes with fundamental privacy issues."  In addition to the cops, "private entities in places of public accommodation" are now barred from using it as well.  That means businesses that serve the public — restaurants, grocery stores, etc.

Women Who Stole Kid's MAGA Hat Charged With Hate Crime.  Two Delaware women accused of accosting a 7-year-old boy outside of the Democratic National Convention and taking his MAGA hat are facing up to 15 years in prison for a hate crime.  [Tweet]  Yes, it was "shameful."  It was also mean, stupid, small-minded, and wrong.  But do the women really deserve to spend 15 years in prison for it?

The Editor says...
They could spend up to 15 years in prison.  That's what juries are for.  That's what parole boards are for.  Maybe the perpetrators should have thought of this about a month ago.

Fight — or the Dems Will Steal This Election.  Schools have been teaching identity politics to our children for decades.  The left seeks to abrogate of our nation's moral fiber with the deliberate destruction of absolute right and wrong under written and duly enacted law.  While we seek to debate, they seek to silence.  While we accept differences of opinion, they cancel.  While we would live and let live, they will burn it all down.  We see the consequences of this in the disaffected youth playing "resistance" dress-up and burning down our cities.  The process of using identity politics to maximize victimhood has damaged the values and principles this nation was founded upon and its citizens have lived by.  Self-sufficiency, taking responsibility for one's own actions, equality under the law, property rights, and law and order have been cast aside in favor of Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project.  It is the left's attempt to see anarchy reign in our streets as rioters run amok, steeped in the victimhood and righteous violence taught to them all their lives.  It is all part of their plan to steal the presidency, one way or another.

LASD deputies arrest 17 'anarchists' at South LA protest following shooting death of Dijon Kizzee.  For the fourth night in a row, a crowd of protesters gathered near the South Los Angeles Sheriff's station over the fatal shooting of Dijon Kizzee.  Deputies arrested three dozen people who were looking to stir up trouble after engaging with what authorities described as a more "aggressive, anarchist" group than in previous nights.  LASD told FOX 11 they gave the crowd an order to disperse when the crowd began "gearing up" and was standing in the street at the intersection of Imperial Highway and Normandie Avenue.

Chad Wolf Sets the Record Straight on Portland, 'Mostly Peaceful' Riots, and COVID.  Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf set the record straight on the violent antifa riots in Portland in his 2020 State of the Homeland speech on Wednesday.  He explained just how dangerous the riots had been for federal law enforcement and he excoriated Gov. Kate Brown (D-Ore.) and Mayor Ted Wheeler (D-Portland) for refusing to cooperate with federal officers as they protected the federal courthouse from rioters.  Wolf also condemned the ridiculous assertion that the violence in Portland has been "mostly peaceful."

'You're Not Allowed To Film': The Fight To Control Who Reports From Portland.  You can assert that, yes, you can film; you can point out that they themselves are filming incessantly; you can push their hands away from covering your phone; you can have your phone record them stealing your phone — all of these things have happened to me — and none will have any impact [...] I wondered, the first time I attended the protests at the federal building back in July, who all these young people with PRESS emblazoned on their jackets or helmets were.  I asked one such guy who he worked for.  "Independent Press Corps," he told me.  As it turned out, dozens of other young PRESS people happened to work for the same outfit, which I at first assumed was a fancy way of saying "I want to report stuff and stream it on my Instagram."  This turned out to be naive.  The IPC is an organized group in league with the activists, and it is usually their footage you see streamed online and recycled on the news: mostly innocent protestors being harassed and beaten by police.

Why I'm Voting for Trump, Even Though I Don't Want To.  I want to vote for law and order and against Antifa and BLM.&Nbsp; The violence, looting, and destruction in our cities is intolerable, abetted by weak Democrat mayors.  Joe Biden recently came out against violence — three months after the riots started.  He has never condemned Antifa or BLM.

Dem Staffer Arrested by the Portland Police During BLM Riot, Dem Response Says It All.  Democrats are now trying to spin away any blame for the BLM riots after they unreservedly embraced the group and tried to downplay the actions as "peaceful protest."  Democratic leaders refused to properly address them or hold rioters accountable.  In fact, there have been multiple Democrats from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Rep. Maxine Waters and Rep. Ayanna Pressley encouraging calling for unrest in the streets.  On top of all that, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the Democratic candidate for vice-president contributed to a fund to help bail out people arrested during the riots.  At least 13 Biden staffers also contributed to the fund.  They also encouraged others to contribute as well, helping the fund raise $35 million.  That enabled violent criminals to get out, including one who allegedly committed another assault, leaving a victim with a traumatic brain injury.

Delaware women accused of stealing MAGA hat indicted on robbery, hate crime charges.  Two Delaware women accused of stealing a MAGA hat outside the Democratic National Convention were indicted Tuesday on charges including second-degree robbery and felony hate crimes.  Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, were indicted by a grand jury on charges of second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree assault, attempted third-degree assault, offensive touching and felony hate crimes, Delaware Online reported.

Antifa Reality Check:  This Is A Problem Of RUF/ROE.  Good men, home owners, fathers who want to protect their families, and business owners, are progressively being backed into a corner.  I suspect they will not allow themselves to be put into a position of no escape from that corner.  At that point, the Antifa/BLM project becomes very dangerous for everyone involved.

Coalition of more than 50 leftist groups preparing for "mass public unrest" if election results are unclear, or Trump disagrees with reported Biden win.  An association of more than 50 left-wing organizations is discussing and preparing a variety of strategies for potential responses to the results of the 2020 election.  According to a report by The Daily Beast, a recent virtual meeting of the group, which calls itself the Fight Back Table, included discussions of how to initiate large-scale public civil disobedience if it believes Democratic nominee Joe Biden has won the election, but President Trump is contesting the result.  "It is very obvious that Trump is laying the groundwork for claiming victory no matter what," said Rahna Epting, a participant in the call and the executive director of a group called MoveOn.

Antifa riots may be part of Democrat power grab.  Whether or not all rioters are Democrat voters, they increasingly are associated with Biden's campaign in the minds of voters who fear violence is coming to their suburb.  This rolling campaign of anti-police street violence is killing Biden's bid for the presidency — just look at private polling in crucial swing states such as Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where law and order has become a decisive issue.  So why don't Democrat leaders do more to condemn the violence and call for calm?  To understand their inaction, you need to step back and see street violence as one element of a coordinated "playbook" to dislodge President Trump, regardless of the outcome of the election.  This is the thesis of political theorist Dr. Darren Beattie, a former Duke University professor and White House official.

Democrat Supported Marxist Group Plans Siege on White House Starting September 17.  Leftist operatives with the support of Democrats are burning and pillaging cities across the country.  Stores are looted and government buildings are attacked on a weekly basis by far left terrorists.  This past week Leftist operatives announced a 50 days siege on the White House.  They plan on starting the siege on September 17th, to continue for 50 days, until the election on November 3.  Leftists hope this will get them more votes for Biden.

Fostering massive social disorder is no way to protest.  It's increasingly obvious that far too many people out causing havoc in the name of Black Lives Matter are in fact just wallowing in the chance to bully people and break stuff, or worse.  And the ranks of Antifa, in particular, are packed with utter thugs (mostly white) who are devastating mainly black neighborhoods in towns like Kenosha, Wis.  Yes, many protesters try to stand up to the extremists:  In the videos of ruffians trashing restaurants and threatening diners up in Rochester, you see some people trying to stop the mayhem.  But they fail, badly — and so the cause is set back, badly.  And for that, all these movements' leaders are to blame.  The civil-rights movement understood that it could only succeed by appealing to the nation's conscience and ruthlessly policed its own ranks.  Black Lives Matter organizers seem to think otherwise — why else sit by as its followers harass restaurant-goers across the country?

Organizers Of "White House Siege" Predict" Things Could Turn Very Ugly" — Predicts New Civil War.  As November draws closer, President Trump has indeed adopted a more ominous tone about the election.  In speeches and interviews, he complained about "voter fraud" and warns that Democrats will use millions of fraudulent mail-in ballots to steal his second term.  A few days ago Bernie Sanders said that he fears President Donald Trump will refuse to leave office if he loses reelection and is calling on Congress and the media to take action to prepare for that scenario now, he said in an interview with POLITICO. [...] Of course, the Dems have other foot soldiers to do their dirty work for them.  With the chances of a legitimate election win by Joe Biden slowly slipping away, allies of the Democrats are positioning their forces for the chaos that will be unleashed by the reelection of President Trump.

A vote for Joe Biden is still a vote for radicalism, not normalcy.  [Scroll down]  Second, Biden is finally bothering to address the months-long rioting that the news media have been trying to cover up.  Urban violence, and the related spike in violent crime due to police being preoccupied or even defunded by radicals in city government, is suddenly emerging as a defining election issue.  Leftist agitators continue after three months to damage or destroy businesses and private and government property in such cities such as Portland, Chicago, Washington, New York, Seattle, Denver, and a host of others.  Biden's acknowledgment that this issue exists is a start, even if his initial response has not been intelligent.  At first, he tried to blame it on right-wing extremist groups, taking his cue from an absurd conspiracy theory that has spread among liberals seeking to justify or cover up rioters' behavior.  Subsequently, Biden and other Democrats have sought to emphasize that this is all occurring "on President Trump's watch," as if Biden were proposing to take the necessary steps to restore law and order (which of course he isn't).

Fanning the Flames.  For months, Biden and his media allies have abetted #BlackLivesMatter activists in inciting racial fear and hatred, claiming that "systemic racism" by police accounts for the deaths of black suspects at the hands of police.  Even though research clearly disproves such claims, the facts haven't stopped Democrats from trying to exploit this slanderous narrative in their effort to defeat President Trump.  Last week, after a self-declared "100% Antifa" radical murdered a Trump supporter in Portland, Oregon, Biden doubled-down on this anti-police rhetoric, blaming "bad cops" for "racial injustice in America," while bizarrely accusing Trump of "stoking violence in our cities."  Contrary to Biden's claims, however, the "violence in our cities" — mobs rioting in Portland and Seattle, looting in Chicago and New York, and attacking police everywhere — clearly has been fomented by anti-Trump activists, including the "trained Marxist" leaders of #BlackLivesMatter.

Not in Our Town?  How About 'Not in Our Country'?  American law enforcement is now caricatured as the Gestapo or as brainless, heartless automatons marching in lockstep to the commands of "systemic racism."  Different communities and different religions are taught not to look for common ground, but to instead wall themselves off from each other in celebration of their own grievances.  Yes, celebration.  Identity politics has turned Americans into us and them, and we are taught to celebrate "us" and fear "them."  How [...] can Americans sit back and watch as gangs of dangerous extremists maraud through our cities — burning buildings, throwing rocks, bottles and explosives at police, and attacking the elderly?  Why make excuses for the bullies or justify their violence?  Looting is wrong.  Vandalism is wrong.  Lawlessness is wrong.  Yet too many people will not say so.  Has the country completely lost its moral center in the last 25 years?  If one is being honest, the answer must be yes.

"You're Not Allowed To Film": The Fight To Control Who Reports From Portland.  "YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO FILM!" is a cry you hear incessantly at protests in Portland, Oregon, always shouted at close range to your face by after-dark demonstrators.  You can assert that, yes, you can film; you can point out that they themselves are filming incessantly; you can push their hands away from covering your phone; you can have your phone record them stealing your phone — all of these things have happened to me — and none will have any impact on their contention that "YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO FILM" and its occasional variation, "PHOTOGRAPHY EQUALS DEATH!"  I cannot say who came up with these anti-camera battle cries.  But it's easy to understand why protesters use them: to shape the narrative the country sees about the protests.


"It has been my experience that whenever a leader — whether elected, anointed or media-appointed — does not want you to see something, that's probably the time when you should go out of your way to see it."

BLM-Biden Supporters Scream at Elderly Couple Dining Outdoors in Pittsburgh, Steal their Drinks Off Table.  This is how Biden supporters treat elderly Americans.  Black Lives Matter terrorists screamed obscenities at elderly people dining outdoors in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Sunday [9/6/2020].  So much for worrying about Covid-19!  Other violent Biden supporters were breaking glassware and intimidating diners.

The Mayors Whose Names You Don't Know.  [Scroll down]  Take, for example, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.  For more than 80 days, Black Lives Matter protesters and Detroit police observed a tense but durable truce, and the conditions for preserving the peace were simple.  As long as the movement was moving — literally, maintaining forward motion — there would be no interference with the protests from law enforcement.  That peace was shattered in the final week of August when demonstrators turned violent and attempted to "occupy" a downtown street.  "I am not going to let any group set up a Seattle zone of lawlessness here in the city of Detroit," said Detroit Police Chief James Craig during a news conference.  "That is non-negotiable."  That day, riot gear-clad police swarmed the section of the city in which demonstrators had gathered, arresting at least 44 protesters, confiscating weapons and body armor, and charging many of them with a variety of misdemeanor offenses.  As of this writing, Mayor Dugan continues to sleep well in his home, free from the fear of forcible ejection by a violent mob.

Starbucks barista teaches how to make poisonous 'Blue Lives Matter' drink.  Pranks have turned more and more deadly in recent months as many, in particular radical leftist youths and young adults, have started ramping up efforts to engage in full-blown murder.  Law enforcement officers are often their targets, as was the case with a barista who made a video showing how to put together a poisonous "Blue Lives Matter" drink.  The barista, identified as Van Greyson Hart, is seen in the video demonstrating how to mix a lethal dose of bleach with other ingredients to make it look like a standard Starbucks drink.  According to Starbucks, the Target in which Hart works is licensing the brand and directly employs Hart.

The Editor says...
"Licensing the brand" is no defense.  If you permit a franchise owner (after recieving a hefty fee) to use your well-establish brand name to lure customers, you share in the responsibility for whatever happens in that franchised location.  I was in a jury pool once, and one of the defense lawyers tried to play this card, and when it became clear that I wasn't buying it, I was excused.

What if, in those violent big cities run by liberal Democrats, the politics were different?  [Scroll down]  What if Republican mayors, rather than restore order in their ruined cities and towns, just hid in publicly subsidized fortresses, or bunkered behind police walls while the rest of you were left on your own, and then those mayors just ran off?  It was Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's staff that raised bond money for rioters in ruined Minneapolis, back when his campaign saw the street anger as politically beneficial.  Biden floats like a cork on the sea roiled by the hard left that runs his party.  And Republican President Donald Trump hammers him for it.  "We have not lived at home for two months," Krewson told the St. Louis Post Dispatch.  "We did it to de-escalate the situation ... and importantly because our neighbors were being disturbed and threatened."  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler fled his home from riots there that never stop.  The Oregonian reported that Wheeler apologized to his neighbors for the damage to his home.

Portland mayor facing resignation calls, questioned leadership as election looms.  Two months before the November election, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler faces calls to resign from sources as wide-ranging as liberal constituents who once supported him to the nation's Republican president, who cite what they say is his lack of clear leadership as the city hit 100 days of protests.  Many critics say they're frustrated that Wheeler, the city's police commissioner, expresses support for police reforms yet hasn't come out strongly when officers appear to use excessive force on people during protests.  Many others are frustrated he hasn't done more to end the nightly demonstrations and the property damage, small fires and provocations of police that usually accompany them.  Still others feel he has said more about his disagreements with President Donald Trump than his solutions to aid a city reckoning with a pandemic, a recession, homelessness, unaffordable housing, increased gun violence and other racial and economic inequalities.

Rochester, New York Is Now Trying To Turn Into Portland.  While this story hasn't garnered as much national attention as George Floyd or Jason Blake, it's quickly picking up steam.  Back in March of this year, Daniel Prude, a 41-year-old Black man from Rochester, New York, died after being taken into police custody.  The fact that he was naked in the middle of a street (obviously unarmed) and that the police had put a bag over his head until he was apparently asphyxiated made for an ugly set of visuals.  He was pronounced brain dead at a local hospital and died roughly one week later.  Recently, video of Prude's arrest showed up in the media and the response since then has grown like wildfire, following a similar pattern that we've seen in Portland, Minneapolis, Kenosha and other locations.  The first night after the video went viral, a few dozen protesters showed up near a local police precinct.  By Saturday night, their numbers had grown into the thousands and the police were under direct, physical assault.  But as with so many of these stories, there is more to the tale of Prude's demise than might first meet the eye.

Where are the rioters coming from?  Data shows mix of locals and out-of-staters converging on cities.  West Hollywood; Seattle; Portland; Pasco, Wash.; and Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.  These are just a handful of the cities where recently arrested Kenosha, Wis., rioters are listed as coming from.  And as riots continue to pop up across the United States, such data has fueled speculation about the origins of the agitators and how they might be organized.  The records released so far reveal a mix — of out-of-towners, of people whose home city police do not know and also locals.  Records reflect plenty of Kenosha residents have been swept up in the arrests there, just as Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis residents have taken part in the unrest in those cities.

Comic book writers' son arrested in BLM rampage in NYC.  One of the Black Lives Matter protesters busted in a window-smashing rampage over the weekend is the son of a New York Times best-selling comic book writer whose creations inspired the show TV show "Stumptown."  Elliot Rucka, 20, of Portland was among the eight people arrested on rioting and other charges in the spree Friday that damaged and vandalized banks, Starbucks and Duane-Reades from Foley Square up to 24th Street.  The protest — which was organized by the groups "New Afrikan Black Panther Party" and the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement" — escalated to a three-hour marathon of destruction that caused at least $100,000 in damages, authorities said.

"Stumptown" Creator's Son Arrested in NYC BLM Riot.  Another privileged young revolutionary was arrested at the latest social justice riot in NYC, Elliot Rucka.  Rucka was arrested in NYC on rioting and other charges in the spree Friday that damaged and vandalized banks, Starbucks, and Duane-Reades from Foley Square up to 24th Street, the NY Post reported.  Ironically, Elliot Rucka, the 20-year-old son of a successful comic book writer, is from the capital of social justice violent riots, Portland.  This young, idealistic window smashing crusader's father, Greg Rucka, is a New York Times best-selling author.

Pundits gaslight the American people on violent riots.  Though Joe Biden has now accepted that violence is occurring in many major American cities and has started blaming Donald Trump for it, many of his supporters haven't gotten the memo.  A new trend among some high-profile left-wingers is to gaslight Americans by posting daytime photos of well-to-do areas of cities undamaged by the riots as proof that the riots aren't real.  Meanwhile, tear gas and fires engulf entire blocks at nighttime.  Josh Campbell, a former FBI agent and CNN contributor, kicked off the trend by tweeting September 1: 'Good morning from wonderful Portland, where the city is not under siege and buildings are not burning to the ground.  I also ate my breakfast burrito outside today and so far haven't been attacked by shadowy gangs of Antifa commandos.'

Why do You Support Joe Biden?  There are a lot of unanswered questions for Biden supporters.  Part of the frustration with the left and those that support it is that they never offer a convincing rationale for their actions.  Why are you voting for him? [...] How do you anticipate Joe Biden responding to the deadly and damaging riots in American streets effectively when he's been here before and it is known that his anti-police rhetoric only encourages more entitled lawlessness to build?  Recall that President Obama and Vice-President Biden nurtured the growth of Black Lives Matter with their baseless and divisive responses to the Cambridge police incident, the Trayvon Martin death, the Michael Brown death, and the Freddie Gray death.  Feel free to also to weigh in on the belief that Trump sending in troops to an already burning city like Portland somehow increases the tension, or the fact that when they pull out the burning continues.[...] How can you support the looting and riots, even writing them off as "mostly peaceful," knowing full well you would never accept it in your own community and backyard?  What right do you have to safety while others do not?

"Bipartisan" Washington Insiders Reveal Their Plan for Chaos if Trump Wins the Election.  A group of "bipartisan" neoconservative Republicans and establishment Democrats have been "simulating" multiple catastrophic scenarios for the 2020 election, including a simulation where a clear victory by the incumbent provokes "unprecedented" measures, which the Biden campaign could take to foil a new Trump inauguration.

Criminal Who Was Bailed Out of Jail by Nonprofit Funded by Biden's Staffers Violently Assaults Man.  A 32-year-old accused felon committed another violent assault against an innocent man after being bailed out by the nonprofit funded by Biden's staffers.  The Minnesota Freedom Fund received $35 million in donations during the George Floyd riots and Biden's campaign staffers were among the people who made substantial donations.  Lionel Timms was bailed out of jail in July thanks to the Minnesota Freedom Fund touted by Biden's running mate Kamala Harris.

50+ Questions No Reporter Dares Ask Joe Biden And His Campaign.  On Rioting And Violence:  Will you ever directly condemn Antifa and the Black Lives Matter rioters as the cause for the violence ripping through the nation's cities?  Would you allow the National Guard into cities like Portland that have seen 100 days of violence, rioting, and even death?  What, if anything, can be done to stop the epidemic of violence in Chicago and other cities?  Have their Democrat leaders failed the citizens there?

Advice For Rioters If You're Visited By The FBI.  [Scroll down]  The feds are not playing "whack a rioter" every night in the street.  Each night is another step in building a larger case against organizers of these riots.  These consensual interviews are meant to identify participants and gather whatever information they can gather on other participants.  I'm 100% confident there is a significant database already in existence that is documenting the identities and photographs of dozens or hundreds of individuals.  In addition to the agent resources devoted to dismantling the "command and control" network of the Portland groups, the Portland FBI office is certainly dedicating a substantial amount of analyst work.  All day long, while rioters are resting up and getting ready for the nighttime festivities, numerous FBI analysts are going over audio, video, cell phone traffic, and any other communications they can monitor to track the individuals who are planning and providing the logistical resources being used to sustain these protesters.  It is a laborious process of linking participants and documenting their activities.  But when the necessary investment of time and resources are made on the front end, bullet-proof cases against the most significant participants emerge at the end.  The protesters really have no understanding about the resources that have been devoted to breaking them up.

Black Lives Matter activist suckerpunched a Trump supporter at the Beverly Hills protest.  Not all heroes wear capes. [...] Flashback to Aug. 22nd, when a crowd of Black Lives Matter extremists descended into the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles and, as usual, began causing trouble.  [Video clip]

Data: 48 of America's 50 Largest Cities Hit By Black Lives Matter Riots.  New data from Princeton University show that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States. [...] Within the largest 100 cities by population, 74 experienced riots.  Several smaller communities have also experienced riots, including — most recently — Rochester, New York, and Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Antifa's violent, organized tactics are getting exposed.  Based on the arrest photos of apprehended Antifa rioters, the impression is out there that the group is little more than a bunch of extremist fringe crazies.  Sadly, it's not so.  Report after report shows that Antifa is highly organized, in its rioting, its killing, and its press coverage. [...] Besides the atrocities, they also have help.  Apparently, someone on the inside in Portland's government is providing shelter for them on the city's dime, in the form of a homeless tent camp.  They deny it, of course, but it certainly does seem to explain how Antifa, with all its pan-United States cast of characters, can operate for 100 nights of mayhem in Portland alone.  They also have the press.

The Democrats' tragic romance with the rioters.  [Scroll down]  But the left's fondness for theater invariably leads them to act up, and then overact.  Predictably, they escalated their theater from drama to melodrama to Rambo movies.  Peaceful protests grew into riots.  Buildings were burned, stores were looted and people were killed. [...] The rioting culminated at the commencement of the Democratic National Convention which was held, virtually, in Joe Biden's basement.  Or wherever.  People wondered, what will they say about the riots?  We soon learned what they would say.  Not a [...] thing.  They never mentioned the riots that worsened nightly through their convention.  The apparent reason was that the rioters hate Trump (and America too) and so do the Democrats.  Under the tribal shibboleth "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," the Dems figured that the rioters were their friends because both were enemies of Trump.  Friends don't call out friends just because they're looting, burning and murdering.  At least Democrat ones don't.

Black Lives Matter protesters smash NYC Starbucks window in stunning video.  Manhattan business owners vented anger and frustration Saturday [9/5/2020] as they surveyed the damage and cleaned up another mess caused by riotous members of Black Lives Matter, whose protest the night before devolved into a lawless rampage of destruction through the Big Apple.  "I'm sick of this [...]!" raged Kevin McGrath, owner of the Five Points Academy boxing gym across the street from a beseiged Starbucks at Lafayette and Grand streets in Soho.  The java giant was among several businesses damaged Friday night by BLM demonstrators during a planned protest march north from Foley Square to Chelsea and across to Flatiron, resulting in what authorities said was $100,000 in damage to stores and banks.

Judge Orders Detroit Police Not to Use Batons, Tear Gas Against Protesters for Two Weeks.  A federal judge in Detroit has ordered the city's police not to use batons, tear gas, shields, chokeholds, rubber bullets, sound cannons, or any other type of non-lethal force against protesters for the next two weeks.  The late Friday [9/4/2020] ruling granted a temporary restraining order to the activist group Detroit Will Breathe, which sued the city on Monday, claiming that excessive police force infringed upon their protesters' First Amendment rights, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Little Red Rioting Hood
Wealthy NYC woman busted in BLM rampage.  One of the Black Lives Matter protesters now facing felony rioting and misdemeanor graffiti charges — after a window-smashing free-for-all in Manhattan — is a wealthy Upper East Sider whose mother is an architect and whose father is a child psychiatrist.  Clara Kraebber, 20, is one of eight people arrested Friday night [9/4/2020] after a roiling, three-hour rampage that police say caused at least $100,000 in damage from Foley Square up to 24th Street.  "Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!" the group chanted as it moved up Lafayette Street while busting the plate glass facades of banks, Starbucks and Duane-Reades.  The protest was organized by groups calling themselves the "New Afrikan Black Panther Party" and the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement." [...] She is now facing a maximum of four years prison on her top charge of first-degree riot.


20-year-old college student from wealthy elite family facing possible 4-year prison term for violent BLM rampage in Manhattan.  [Scroll down]  Young Ms. Kraebber is no dummy.  She is a student at Rice University, one of the most selective schools (a mere 9% of applicants were admitted in 2019) in the country and is a graduate of Hunter College High School on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, whose students score in the top one-quarter of one percent of students based on test scores.  Her parents are members of the nation's academic elite — her father is a psychiatrist on the faculty of Columbia University, while her mother is the principal of an architectural firm bearing her name whose clients include Columbia and NYU. Her family lives in the Upper East Side in an apartment for which they paid $1.8 million 4 years ago, and also boasts a house in Connecticut with 4 fireplaces.  On Friday [9/4/2020], young Clara was arrested for participating in a 3-hour rampage that did an estimated $100,000 in damage, smashing store windows and doing other damage to lower Manhattan.

For America's Mayors, Home Is No Longer Safe.  In San Jose, Calif., a group of about 100 people spray-painted an obscenity on the front door of Mayor Sam Liccardo on Aug. 28, threw eggs and burned an American flag as they demanded that he defund the Police Department.  In Portland, Ore., protesters threw burning material into the lobby of the apartment building where Mayor Ted Wheeler lives.  In Seattle, they marched to the home of Mayor Jenny Durkan, who as a former federal prosecutor later expressed alarm that her previously undisclosed address had been made public.  In Chicago, activists descended on the home of Mayor Lori Lightfoot, prompting the city to begin enforcing a statute banning protests in residential neighborhoods.  Most of the mayors are Democrats who support Black Lives Matter protests and have said they want to see some law-enforcement reform.  But they are attempting to draw the line at damage or threats to their homes, putting liberal leaders in the unusual position of confronting activists on their side of the political spectrum, instead of opponents on the right.

Portland 'riot' declared after Molotov cocktails tossed.  At least three Molotov cocktails were tossed in the direction of Portland, Ore., police late Saturday, prompting yet another night of unrest in the city to be declared a riot, according to reports.  Video posted on social media showed people scattering after a fiery object hurtled through the air and crashed on the ground, resulting in a huge fireball and smoke.  In another video, a rioter is seen scrambling for help after his feet catch fire while trying to escape flames.

ANTIFA Member Tosses Molotov At Cops, Ends Up Lighting BLM Activist On Fire Instead.  On what seems to be day number 1000 of rioting in Portland, ANTIFA tried to up their game against a seemingly more aggressive Portland PD.  A Black Bloc member tried tossing a Molotov cocktail at some officers but seems to have had bad aim as the flaming bottle landed by some BLM activists, lighting one's legs on fire.  [Video clip]

President Trump:  U.S. marshals [were] called in to locate Portland killer due to inaction from local authorities.  President Trump has expressed his support for a recent law enforcement operation, which resulted in the death of the man suspected of murdering a conservative protester.  On Friday, the president suggested federal agents were needed due to inaction from local authorities.  On Thursday, U.S. marshals located 48-year-old suspect Michael Forest Reinoehl near his home in Lacey, Washington.  Reinoehl was reportedly armed at the time.  Authorities attempted to take him into custody when shots were fired.

Minority-owned security company hired to watch Seattle park quits on first night after being harassed by Antifa.  Cal Anderson Park in Seattle is a large open space immediately adjacent to the former CHAZ/CHOP zone.  For weeks the park has been a kind of home base for protesters/rioters who would gather there each night before marches.  Some people had set up tents and were sleeping there.  There was even some kind of store full of donated items.  Earlier this week the city finally cleared the park and found a tent serving as a kind of Antifa armory: [...] After the park was cleared, the city contracted with a private security firm to keep an eye on things at night.  I'm not sure what the thinking was here.  I guess it was cheaper to hire private security than to use police officers.  In any case, the first night the private security officers arrived they were immediately hounded out of the park.  [Video clip]

Portland Police Aren't Fooling Around Anymore.  During night number 99 of rioting and mayhem, Portland PD put their foot down on the neck of ANTIFA hard.  Several Black Bloc-heads were tackled and arrested and one female was even unmasked.  Dozens were arrested.  [Video clip]

BLM Punk Tries To Storm #WalkAway Stage, Gets DESTROYED By A GIANT Black Trump Supporter, Arrested.  This altercation happened today during the Pro-Trump rally, #WalkAway Rescue America Rallies in Downtown Dallas.  The event was peaceful until this clash took place, as both President Trump supporters, and counter-protesters were letting their opinions be known.  Brandon Straka, organizer of Walk Away Rescue America, have emphasized that security is in place at all rallies — in order to make it safe for supporters to participate.  Last time in San Francisco, Black Lives Matter tried to 'crash the party', today in Dallas, Texas security had to move in and pacify BLM agitators that became violent.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Supporters March, Threaten, Trash Restaurants and Businesses in New York.  Joe Biden supporters made things very uncomfortable for diners in Rochester New York last evening as they overturned tables, threw chairs and threatened patrons.  [Video clip]

Rich White Leftists Encourage Black People to Loot Their Neighborhoods.  A hardcover copy of "In Defense of Looting" will run you 21 bucks at Amazon and 28 bucks at Barnes and Noble.  That's just how capitalism works for the distribution and sales of a product from one of the biggest publishing companies in the world that's part of the Lagardère empire.  Why is the largest publishing company in France pushing what Publishers Weekly called, "a provocative, Marxist-informed defense of looting" to Americans?  Because it makes money.  Learn why private property is just a social construct for only 21 bucks.

The Racist Left Feels Entitled to Riot.  Events have compelled lifelong swamp denizen Joe "Joey Basement" Biden to scurry into the sunlight and read from a teleprompter.  In a duplicitous performance worthy of Pravda, Biden blamed the leftist riots roiling Democratic "governed" cities on — spoiler alert — President Trump and his "right-wing" supporters.  Attempting to dispel any doubts about his newfound concern for the lives, limbs, and property of American citizens, Biden declared that rioters should be prosecuted.  This must have surprised his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who previously helped to fund the rioters' bail; and the Democratic prosecutors who largely have refused to prosecute the rioters.  Apparently, Harris and Biden's campaign staff have a soft spot for lawless MAGA supporters.  Naturally, since the Left's new narrative (read "lie") is how Republicans' hobnailed wingtips are on the throats of the law-abiding, Biden couldn't bear to mention Black Lives Matter or Antifa, the latter of which the Left argues doesn't exist, though a "100 percent Antifa" murder suspect (lately deceased) disagreed.

Portland shooting suspect followed right-wing activists after spotting them downtown, unsealed arrest warrant says.  Prosecutors in Oregon released recently unsealed court documents Friday alleging that self-described anti-fascist Michael Forest Reinoehl hid in a parking garage before following two supporters of the right-wing Patriot Prayer group after spotting them during street protests last weekend.  Moments later, the records allege, Reinhoel shot and killed one of the men, Aaron "Jay" Danielson.  The records were made public a day after a fugitive task force fatally shot Reinoehl near Lacey, Thurston County.

Black Lives Matter protesters riot in Manhattan, cause $100,000 damage:  NYPD.  Eight people were arrested Friday night when a group of 150 Black Lives Matter protesters smashed windows and graffitied the storefronts of Lower Manhattan chain stores and banks, police sources said.  At least two Starbucks, five banks and a Duane Reade had their windows busted, causing an estimated $100,000 in damage.  Police recovered two stun guns, smoke grenades, and burglary and graffiti tools.  The protest had been advertised on Twitter by groups calling themselves the "New Afrikan Black Panther Party" and the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement."  One of the arrested protesters was from Portland, Ore., and another was from Iowa, the sources said.

Round One Goes to Trump.  The tragedy of Kenosha, along with the response of the presidential candidates, reveals much about the core issues Americans will vote on in November.  A properly functioning Democratic Party would have called for calm and restraint, whilst offering sympathy to those who have suffered harm and loss. [...] In effect, this will be read by millions of Americans, whatever their color, as meaning that the Dems have put American voters on notice: vote for us or this will happen where you live.  The Dems are claiming that only they can stop the riots, and the logical conclusion is that they can do this because they know how to get in contact with the people organizing them.  The evidence for this is that when these riots occur in Dem-controlled towns and cities the local authorities do very little by way of stopping them until the destruction is bad enough to provide useful political propaganda against Trump.  And as soon as this aim has been fulfilled, suddenly the rioting stops, as quickly as it began.  That's pretty much all any reasonable, morally competent person needs to know about the Democrats and race-riots.

Rioters Burned Her Minneapolis Business to the Ground, She's Received No Help.  For nearly 30 years, Flora Westbrook owned a salon in Minneapolis.  In June, rioters took over the neighborhood and destroyed her livelihood by burning the business to the ground.  Months later, she's still received no help from local officials.  In fact, they've made things worse by sending her a $200,000 bill for building removal.  "Here we are 100 days after your place was torched and how much help have you gotten from your local and state officials," Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy asked during an interview Thursday morning [9/3/2020].  "I haven't gotten anything, not a penny," Westbrook said.  "They never showed up.  I didn't see any police at all patrol my area."

Feds begin prosecuting rioters in Portland.  Federal prosecutors have started filing civil disorders charges against violent protesters in Portland, Oregon.  They are filing the charges under a federal statute enacted in 1968 in response to the rioting of that era.  It's interesting, I think, that the Congress that passed this statute was controlled by Democrats.  In 1968, the GOP was outnumbered in both chambers to a much greater degree than it is now.  Back then, Democrats were serious about stopping riots.  These days, they prefer to give rioters space to destroy.  That space is turning out to be wherever [...] they please.  In Portland, the following three people have been charged by the feds under the 1968 law.

Democrats Destroy America, Blame Trump.  [Scroll down]  During the four days of the Democratic National Convention, not a single word was said to condemn the violence.  Instead, a gloomy and ominous atmosphere of anti-Americanism prevailed.  America was again and again called racist, unjust, misogynist, and a dangerous place.  Not a word was said to pin violence on Trump — because the old narrative was still in place that there was no violence.  But the Democrats either miscalculated or completely ignored the basic human feeling of self-preservation.  They also went too far in their "black lives matter" hypocrisy.  Outrage over the death of one black man has already cost hundreds of black lives and livelihoods across the country.

Florida Thug Arrested for Rand Paul Attack Outside RNC.  Authorities have arrested a man from Florida over the attack on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife outside the Republican National Convention last week.  27-year-old Brennen Sermon was arrested and charged in connection with an attack, the District of Columbia U.S. Attorney's Office announced.  The incident reportedly left one of Paul's police guards with severe injuries to his face after he was allegedly punched by Sermon.  Sermon is from Orlando, Florida — quite a distance from Washington, D.C.

Secret Antifa tent city found, and Portland is paying for it.  Where do Portland Antifans rest during the day between riots at night?  In a hidden tent city near downtown, paid for and serviced by the city, according to a local citizen journalist.  [Video clip]

Man Finds Secret ANTIFA Tent City In Portland, They Start Slingshotting Stones At Him.  A man came upon a tent city that houses hundreds of ANTIFA rioters in the Star Park Festival parking lot by the Hawthorne Bridge Junction.  The man films what he sees and taunts the Black Bloc members who seem to be just waking up.  Near the end of the video, a member with a slingshot with stones is used to try and get rid of the man filming.  When that doesn't work, they chased him away, which was not caught on video.  [Video clip]

'This Is Where They House the Rioters!' City of Portland Houses Some Antifa Rioters Destroying the City.  Portland is wittingly or unwittingly housing some of the very same destructive rioters who have been tearing apart the city since May 28.  Let me repeat.  The taxpayers are paying for their own demise and it's all under the auspices of the city.  One month before the riots started, ostensibly to allow grieving over the death of George Floyd — remember him? — the City of Portland opened three homeless tent cities, one of which is the "Harbor of Hope."  The camp is situated close to the Willamette River, just a simple, short walk over the Hawthorn Bridge to downtown Portland, where it spills out onto riot central.

Rochester police involved in Daniel Prude suffocation and death followed training 'step by step', union head says.  Police officers involved in the suffocation of Daniel Prude — who died in March after a bag was placed over his head — were following their training, their union chief has said, as it emerged that Prude's brother Joe said he was hallucinating and suicidal before he died.  Prude, 41, from Chicago, was naked running through the streets of Rochester, New York — where his brother lives — in the early hours of March 23 when he was arrested.  He had taken the drug phencyclidine, known as PCP or angel dust, and was ranting at the officers, telling them he had coronavirus, saying they should just put him on a plane, and asking for their guns.

Signs of trouble before police pinned Prude naked on street.  Daniel Prude appeared to be spiraling into crisis in the hours before police handcuffed him on a city street in March, then pinned the naked man face down.  The 41-year-old had been thrown off a train the day before for disruptive behavior.  He was sent to a hospital for a mental health evaluation after he was said to have expressed suicidal thoughts.

Rochester, NY police use pepper spray on Daniel Prude protesters.  More than 200 protesters gathered in front of the Public Safety Building to demand justice for Daniel Prude on Thursday night [9/3/2020].  But the gathering and ensuing standoff with police — the most contentious since unrest on May 30 ended in vandalism, arson and looting — intensified as the night wore on.  Eight people were arrested and two officers were injured outside the Public Safety Building early Friday, said Rochester Police Capt. Michael Callari.  All eight protesters were charged with disorderly conduct, a violation.  Two of those protesters were also charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and one was also charged with second-degree harassment, a violation.  Callari said protesters threw rocks and bottles at officers.

Gov Cuomo attempts to walk back perceived threat Trump 'better have an army' to protect him in NYC.  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was slammed after he appeared to threaten President Donald Trump over his plan to pull federal funding from some Democrat-run cities.  The Democrat leader declared that the U.S. President had "better have an army'" to protect him if he ever plans to visit New York City, claiming residents want nothing to do with him.  Cuomo later reportedly clarified his remarks after igniting scathing criticism for his shocking rhetoric.

My run-in with the New York Times.  [T]here's a now infamous video from last week where a mob of enraged millennials with their fists pumped in the air surrounded a lone young woman sitting outside a Washington restaurant where I often eat.  Like a scene from the Cultural Revolution, the crowd demanded she shout certain slogans and raise her clenched fist in solidarity — or be damned as a racist.  Most of her fellow diners took the path of least resistance.  She wouldn't.  The chants grew louder: 'White silence is violence!'  They started screaming in her face.  She wouldn't cave.  Wokeness, in case you hadn't noticed, has entered a more intense phase.  Not so long ago, you were canceled for something you did or said or wrote.  Now you're canceled just for saying absolutely nothing at all.

Antifa Members Flying Around the Country to Engage in Rioting:  Barr.  Members of the extremist Antifa network are flying around the country and participating in riots, Attorney General William Barr said in a new interview.  "I've talked to every police chief in every city where there has been major violence and they all have identified Antifa as the ramrod for the violence," Barr said in an appearance this week on CNN's "Situation Room."  "They are flying around the country.  We know people who are flying around the country.  We know where they're going."  "We see some of the purchases they are making before the riots of weapons to use in those riots," he added.  "So, we are following them."  Crossing state lines to engage in rioting is illegal and a federal offense, the attorney general said.

For the Good of the Country, the Democrats Must Accept a Drubbing.  We need to make the riots stop.  They are getting too dangerous. [...] We've always had idealistic youth running around pretending they are Che Guevara.  The Socialist Revolutions always fail.  What's different this time [...] is that the current crop of Socialist Revolutionaries have been getting aid and funding and organizational help from what appear to be actual, honest-to-goodness Socialist Revolutionaries.  Perhaps they are Russians.  Maybe they are Chinese.  They could be "Americans" like George Soros.  It doesn't matter.  Before these creeps showed up, we didn't have pallets of bricks being mysteriously dropped off along the parade routes.  We didn't see dozens of amateur Guevaras wearing identical protective vests and gas masks.  Somebody is buying this stuff and running a distribution operation to handle the logistics, and it isn't the idealistic youth with their toy revolution.  Somewhere in the back there are Serious Adults with Serious Money.

Portland Police Assn. president:  City Council holding police back from dealing with violence.  The president of Portland's Police Association has called on city officials to allow police to do their jobs.  On Wednesday [9/2/2020], Daryl Turner said the police could proactively stop a lot of violence if the City Council and police commissioner would step back.  Turner previously claimed the city was set up for tragedy after $15 million was cut from the police budget.  He reiterated police don't have the ability to step in and help.

Why Trump Doesn't Just 'Send In the Troops'.  The devil is in the details, and the devil here makes Trump pulling the trigger on the troops in the current situation a very bad idea.  We should support his strategic patience and not do what the Democrats want by getting mad at the president for refusing to stumble into an ambush.

Details of '100% Antifa' Portland Shooter's Death Emerge, Possible Large Shoot-Out.  Last night [9/3/2020], Michael Forest Reinoehl was shot and killed by federal authorities after evading capture for nearly a week.  He is the man who allegedly murdered a Trump supporter in cold-blood while "protesting" in Portland, OR. The original chilling video shows Reinoehl responding to someone saying "we've got one over here" by pulling a gun and executing a man in the street at near point blank range.  At first, misinformation spread, claiming the police killed Reinoehl in revenge.  That was, of course, nonsense. [...] In reality, U.S. Marshals moved in to make the arrest after Portland PD and state agencies failed to apprehend him.  That ended badly for Reinoehl, who reported pulled a gun and reportedly had a fairly large shoot-out with the authorities.

Suspect in deadly shooting of right-wing activist in Portland killed by officers in Lacey.  A man suspected by police of fatally shooting a Trump supporter in downtown Portland last weekend was killed in Lacey Thursday night when authorities tried to arrest him during a traffic stop.  A spokesperson for the Pierce County Sheriff's Department said officers responded to a home in Lacey to find Michael Forest Reinoel, 48, a suspect believed to be involved in Aug. 29's fatal protest shooting in Portland.  Authorities said the suspect exited the house and got into a vehicle when officers tried to stop the car.  Shots were fired and the suspect was killed in the gunfire, authorities said.  No officers were injured in the shooting.

Authorities Kill Far-Left Extremist Accused Of Murdering Trump Supporter In Portland, Report Says.  Law enforcement officials reportedly killed 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl, an antifa and Black Lives Matter extremist, on Thursday night [9/3/2020] when they closed in to arrest him for allegedly murdering a right-wing protester in Portland.  Officials said that Reinoehl "was killed during the encounter in Lacey, Wash., southwest of Seattle, when a federal fugitive task force moved to apprehend him," The New York Times reported.  "An arrest warrant had been issued by the Portland police earlier Thursday."

A Pathetic Psychosis Afflicts The Left.  Michael Reinoehl was a mentally disturbed individual.  His family had been estranged from him for more than three years.  His sister described him as having a temper, behaving irrationally, and that he would not be able to deal with the intense situations such as those at the nightly Antifa/BLM protests where he claimed to provide "Security" for protesters.  At some point this week Reinoehl made contact with Portland independent journalist — that's a euphemism for not having a job — Donovan Farley and agreed to an interview.  Farley contacted Vice News, who sent two camera crews to record the interview for broadcast tonight.  Sometime during the day on Thursday a Judge in Portland signed a warrant for Reinoehl's arrest.  It's quite possible that Reinoehl's videotaped admission that he was the shooter solved a prosecution problem of having a witness who could identify him as the shooter.  The video shows someone dressed in the same manner Reinoehl was dressed earlier in the evening, but so far there has been no public disclosure that anyone at the scene of the shooting had positively identified Reinoelh as having fired the fatal shots — that is until Reinoehl himself confirmed it to Farley.

Portland Shooter Dead Hours After He Confesses On Vice TV — Federal Fugitive Task Force Near Seattle.  [Scroll down]  Given that the warrant was issued sometime on Thursday, and that a federal fugitive task force — likely based out of the US Marshal's Office in Seattle — already had solid information on where he was strongly suggests that Reinoehl had been under surveillance in anticipation that a warrant would be forthcoming.  It is unknown exactly what time the warrant was issued, but it does not seem coincidental that it was issued in the same general time frame as the publication of the teaser for the Vice interview.  It is likely that Reinoehl's admissions in the interview resolved one key issue still facing the prosecutor — a positive identification that Reinoehl was, in fact, the person who fired the fatal shot.

DOJ Begins Indicting Portland (and National) Rioters With Federal "Civil Disorder" Charges.  18 U.S. Code § 231.  "Civil Disorders" is a charge defined under federal law as a "public disturbance involving acts of violence which causes an immediate danger of or results in injury to people or their property."  Apparently this federal statute is now being used by U.S. attorneys across the country.

Save Washington, D.C..  D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser must think she's clever.  Maybe she's just desperate.  After weeks of lawlessness in D.C., she's "pleading" with Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin to lower the boom on not-so-peaceful protesters.  In typical Democrat fashion, the violence and destruction plaguing a city — in this case, a very special city — isn't the mayor's fault.  Voters aren't buying this pap.  By Election Day, they really won't be buying it.  Ask conservatives why mobs are running D.C.'s streets, and the typical answer is that Bowser isn't doing her job.  They're right about that.  Say conservatives, if D.C. can't handle the mobs, Bowser should request help from the president.  Trump is ready to intercede.  Law and order could be restored in hours.

New York Governor threatens President's life.  You may have already heard the latest hot rumor suggesting that the President is looking into cutting off funding to various "anarchist" cities that are moving to defund or otherwise dismantle their police forces. [...] As it turns out, that didn't sit very well with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (the more successful brother of "Fredo").  The news hadn't been out for more than a couple of hours yesterday [9/2/2020] before Cuomo called an emergency press conference.  In it, he lambasted the President over a variety of policy issues while slipping in attacks of a personal nature on both Donald Trump and his family.  He calls the President "a clown" at one point while insisting that the Pandemic's severe impact on New York City was somehow Trump's fault.  (Ironic, coming from the guy whose disastrous nursing home policy probably killed more people than were murdered on the streets of New York in the past decade.)

Portland man repeatedly struck federal officers with car:  Justice Department.  A Portland man is accused of chasing two federal officers on an Oregon roadway and trying multiple times to hit them with his car — successfully crashing into their vehicle twice, the U.S. Justice Department announced Wednesday [9/2/2020].  A U.S. magistrate judge released Lonnie Vantewa Albert, pending future court appearances, following his Tuesday hearing in connection with the allegations he assaulted two Federal Protective Service officers with a sports utility vehicle early Sunday morning, according to a Department of Justice press release.

Salon Forced To Relocate Due To 'Death Threats' After Owner Exposed Nancy Pelosi.  On Wednesday's [9/2/2020] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Erica Kious, the owner of the San Francisco hair salon that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visited, reacted to Pelosi's claim that she was set up by stating that Pelosi or her staff made the appointment and wondered, "if she's in there comfortably, without a mask, and feeling safe, then why are we shut down?" Kious said Pelosi "had called a stylist in, or her assistant did, and made the appointment.  So, the appointment was already booked.  So, there was no way I could've set that up.  And I've had a camera system in there for five years.  I mean, I didn't go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in to set her up.  So, that's absolutely false."  The video shows Pelosi entering a room followed by another person — the stylist, according to Fox News — who is wearing a mask.  It is not clear whether she subsequently put her mask back on.

To Destroy America.  The protests that sprang up in the wake of George Floyd's killing in Minneapolis seemed like spontaneous outpourings of grief and anger.  They weren't entirely.  Though many who joined their ranks may have been moved by outrage at the images of Floyd's death, those operating behind the scenes have prepared for this moment for a long time.  Indeed, the leaders of the Black Lives Matter organizations fueling this summer's disturbances were trained by self-described Marxist revolutionaries who have long used the plight of black Americans as justification for overthrowing America's constitutional order.  They frankly admit that such "organizing" is the key to their goal of world revolution. [...] But who initiated this demand for change?  After the initial protests following Floyd's death, public outrage was channeled — by trained activists working from a playbook — into manifestations that often grew riotous.  The Black Lives Matters Global Network and Movement for Black Lives organizations have been the nerve center of the protests.  They have been laying the groundwork for years, carefully cultivating a network of groups that could organize protests when the moment came and amplify the message through social media.

Pushing back against Biden's claim that Trump caused the violence.  In Seattle, the mob set up a murderous autonomous zone.  Chicago's downtown has been repeatedly trashed.  Portland's been the site of downtown warfare for three solid months.  Most recently, little Kenosha, Wisconsin was turned into a war zone after police were forced to shoot a violent rape suspect who fought them, had a knife, resisted being tased, and reached into a car for an unknown but potentially lethal reason.  In every case, the mob violence comes with demands to defund the police, cries of systemic racism, unbridled hatred for Donald Trump and his supporters, demands for the overthrow of the federal government, anti-white racism, and demands for redistribution of wealth.  In other words, it's a leftist package deal.

Portland Rioter Allegedly Stabs Two to Death Just One Week After D.A. Dropped Other Charges Against Him.  Portland rioter Phillip Lawrence Nelson is now a suspect in a double-stabbing murder that occurred just one week after he was caught and let go by local law enforcement.  The original charges against Nelson of interfering with a peace officer were dropped the day after his first arrest in early June, and he was released.  Cassy Leaton and Najaf "Nate" Hobbs were found stabbed to death in Portland on June 16 after an apparent dispute over the building Nelson had been squatting in.  Nelson faces two murder charges and is being held without bail.  Nelson is hardly the first — or last — left-wing rioter to be freed under an unofficial "catch-and-release" program by district attorneys in some of America's most violent Democrat-run cities.

Foundation With Biden Campaign Ties Funding Leftist Agitators On U.S. Streets.  Last Sunday, the site of the Republican National Convention in Charlotte witnessed a night of violence leading to at least five arrests.  Since Friday, Black Lives Matter activists terrorized the Queen City, including beating police officers, in an effort to intimidate GOP attendees and business owners.  By contrast, the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee brought only a small gathering of peaceful activists, who declared:  "We decided that it would make sense for us to make the emphasis of our action the one point of unity that deals with police crimes."  Here we have a real "tale of two cities."  To understand the disparity of these two convention host cities separated by only a week, let's examine some financiers of organizations fomenting the riots now taking place across the country.

Biden's Laughable Pivot.  Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden has sat silent while roving bands of outlaws tore American cities to shreds.  He said nothing when an Antifa leader in Portland called for "the abolition of the United States as we know it."  His own vice-presidential pick, Kamala Harris, grinned as she warned that the riots are "not gonna stop.  And they should not."  Until about five minutes ago, Harris and Biden thought they could use the Marxist revolutionaries of BLM and Antifa as their own pet militia.  They thought that once the brownshirts had made a hellscape of America, they could come sailing in to convince voters that Grandpa Joe and Mamala were going to make it all better.

A Clutch of Fools.  Reporters standing in front of scenes of arson, flames billowing behind them, not very far from scenes of shooting and murder, insist that the protests are "mostly peaceful."  National Public Radio and a multi-billion-dollar global media conglomerate team up to bring you an illiterate "defense of looting."  The president comes to the defense of a dangerously stupid teenager who went looking for trouble illegally armed with a rifle in his hands and, to no one's great surprise, found the trouble he was looking for.  The lesson of the summer is that intellectual and moral anarchy eventually bring with them political anarchy, that chaos in the democratic mind unleashes chaos in the streets.

Boulder police:  Woman assaults 12-year-old boy for carrying Trump campaign sign, tries to steal it.  The Boulder Police Department is investigating after a woman allegedly assaulted a 12-year-old boy and tried to steal a political sign he was carrying.  According to BPD, the incident occurred shortly before 2 p.m. Monday [8/31/2020] at Folsom Street and Glenwood Drive.  The boy was riding his bicycle and carrying a yard sign in support of President Donald Trump's reelection campaign.  A woman riding a gray-blue moped drove past the boy and saw the sign.  Police said the woman made a U-turn, approached the boy and "began assaulting him because of his political banner."

Joe Biden Hits the Campaign Trail, It Hits Back.  [Scroll down]  The good news, if you care to spin it that way, is that the mostly peaceful ransackers also probably don't know if this specific black-owned office they're setting on fire has people living above it.  Maybe someone will die of smoke inhalation, but, hey — maybe not!  There's much more at the Twitter thread, and [the writer] encourages you to watch all the videos.  Also please take note of how calmly and systematically these antifa thugs go about the business of destroying someone's business, someone's life.  They aren't angry or aggrieved or oppressed.  Antifa just firmly believe that ruining people's lives will advance their political agenda, and so that's what they do.

Oregon State Troopers were deputized by the feds so they can make arrests on federal charges.  There are a lot of moving parts to this one so let's quickly recap.  There have been 95 straight nights of protests in Portland since the death of George Floyd and on 25 occasions those have been declared riots.  Mayor Ted Wheeler has been more vocal lately about denouncing the violence and in response the mob has targeted him at his home with occupations, vandalism, arson and rioting.  Mayor Wheeler has now told his neighbors that for their safety he plans to move.

The Editor says...
Ri-i-i-ight.  I'm moving for your safety.  Perhaps at your expense, too.  It's a public service!

DOJ and DHS Confirm Active Federal Probe into Criminal Activity and Funding Related to Violent Riots.  The Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security confirmed this week that the DOJ is investigating the organizers and funders behind the violent riots that have engulfed the country since May.  "We are investigating coordinated, criminal activity — not First Amendment activity — and violence related to riots, destruction of federal property and violence against law enforcement officers," said DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec on Tuesday.

Kerri Kupec Discusses Ongoing DOJ/FBI Investigative Efforts of Coordinated Domestic Political Violence.  DOJ Spokesperson Kerri Kupek appears with Martha MacCallum to discuss the ongoing DOJ and FBI efforts to track, trace and identify the groups and individuals carrying out domestic political violence.  Ms. Kupek focuses discussion on FBI investigative efforts to follow the funding mechanism and money trail behind violent groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  Personal Note — Ms. Kerri Kupek is a committed, solid and professional person representing the institution of the DOJ and her immediate boss, Attorney General Bill Barr.  As such Kupec is not obtuse, intellectually disingenuous or prone to subject avoidance; however, she is also representing a flawed and fractured institution that still contains considerable elements of corruption.  [Video clip]

Here's How We Know Biden Isn't Sincere About 'Condemning' Violence.  Joe Biden wants the public to believe that he's always deemed violence "unacceptable," even when it's perpetrated by leftists.  But when he and his party held the national spotlight just two weeks ago, they were cheering on the same thugs as "peaceful protesters."  "I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right," Biden said on Monday [8/31/2020].  That's certainly news to anyone of the millions who watched his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.  Biden had absolutely nothing whatsoever to say about the ongoing violence around the country. [...] By the time he made his acceptance speech, more than two dozen people had died in "protests."  Dozens of police officers had been injured and at least one lost his life.

DC Police Won't Say Why They Did Not Protect Politicians, Guests Leaving RNC.  Washington, D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department refused to comment on why protesters were allowed to harass Republican National Convention attendees outside of the White House Thursday night, according to a Daily Caller report.  "Protesters harassed Florida Rep. Brian Mast, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and his wife, RNC guests and police officers, multiple videos from the night show," Daily Caller reported[.]  Washington D.C.'s Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department Peter Newsham said in a press conference Monday that the department had to plan for the convention on "short notice."  "When you throw bricks, and rocks and bottles and urine and you set fires, there is going to be a police reaction," Newsham said at the press conference.  "So folks who want to suggest or paint the picture that this was somehow peaceful, and the police indiscriminately used munitions against them, they're not being honest," Newsham added.

BLM protester arrested for recklessly driving his spray-painted van in DC was also at Portland and Kenosha riots.  A BLM protester who was arrested in Washington DC on Saturday night has also been at riots in Portland and Kenosha, police said on Monday, as they revealed they were looking into whether groups were being funded to travel to protest hot-spots.  Jeremy Vajko, 27, a Microsoft engineer, was arrested on Saturday night during violent clashes between police and protesters in the nation's capital.  The Metropolitan Police Department incident report into his arrest claims he was driving recklessly near the Hay Adams hotel and drove 'into a crowd of over one hundred individuals'.

New York Had It Coming.  In the wake of the riots and vandalism things aren't so wonderful in the Big Apple anymore.  Some have said the city is dead and isn't coming back. [...] Thousands of productive New Yorkers have left the City, and [James] Altucher thinks they won't be coming back.  Even so, many are taking their jobs with them.  They don't need to commute to work, as they can telecommunicate to work.  That's because of the huge increases in bandwidth, Altucher tells us.  Why ride the subway to work when one can fire up one's computer and Zoom to work?  Altucher himself held out on moving from his beloved NYC until June, when the riots began.  He has kids, and upon seeing videos of rioters trying to break into his building after curfew, Altucher had had enough and decamped for Florida.

'Mostly Peaceful' ANTIFA Rioters Try To Set Apartment Building Full Of People On Fire In Portland.  Police declared a riot Monday night after people broke windows, burglarized a business, and lit a fire in an occupied apartment building in the Pearl District.  In the evening, a gathering began in the North Park Blocks near Northwest Park Avenue and Northwest Couch Street.  At around 10 p.m., the group marched in the street to the area of Northwest 10th Avenue and Northwest Glisan Street, where Mayor Ted Wheeler lives.  Monday was Wheeler's birthday, and it is not known at this time if Wheeler was home.  [Video clip]

Don't Be a Victim of Democrat Abuse and Voter Endangerment.  [Scroll down]  This last Saturday, an Antifa operative walked up behind a Trump-supporter in Portland and shot him dead.  There was no heat-of-the-moment fight leading to the murder.  It was a cold-blooded political assassination, and Antifa immediately cheered the result and began fundraising for bulletproof vests while the victim still lay on the street.  Both Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and "Joke" Biden immediately blamed President Trump, while giving Antifa and their murderous allies another pass.  It was murder most foul, and Democrats took sides with the murderer. [...] The lives of Trump-supporters just don't matter.  This type of Democrat political violence should have been highlighted and eradicated back in 2017, when a Bernie Sanders-supporter and frequent emailer of Democrat Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois attempted to carry out a mass political assassination that could easily have ended with two dozen dead Republican congressmen.  That attack nearly changed the balance of power in Washington and the course of national history, but still Jeff Flake and other apologists found it easier to blame President Trump rather than call out the relentless Democrat campaign to tar his presidency as illegitimate and a national threat.  Because the press and the Democrats ignored the violence breathing life into their political party, they implicitly sanctioned all the acts of violence that have continued to the current day.

Suspect Tried To Set Boat With Trump Banner On Fire At Bridgeport Yacht Club.  A city man has been charged with arson after officials say he was seen with a gasoline can on a boat with a Trump flag at the East End Yacht Club.  Olajuwon Johnson, 25, of Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree arson.  His bond was set at $10,000.  The charges stemmed from a 911 call around 2:30 p.m. Monday.  The caller reported a person with an apparent can of gasoline on a boat at the yacht club that had a flag on it supporting President Donald Trump, according to Scott Appleby, the city's director of emergency management and emergency communications.  [Video clip]

Democrats need to face the enemy to their left.  Last week, a mob of white protesters swarmed a white woman eating dinner in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.  Video of the bullies demanding that patrons raise their fists in solidarity with the movement went viral.  Pro-Trump and right-wing media personalities were quick to insist this verbal assault was emblematic of the entire Democratic Party and the broader American left.  Never mind that the victim, Lauren Victor, was a fellow progressive who told a Washington Post reporter, "I'm very much with them.  I've been marching with them for weeks."  Among the funny things about this decidedly unfunny event is that it would have been almost impossible for this roving rhetorical goon squad to find the kind of victims they surely wanted.

Portland mayor says he'll move soon, after protests at his condo building.  Portland, Ore., Mayor Ted Wheeler says he's looking for a new place to live.  Wheeler's disclosure came Tuesday [9/1/2020] in an email to other residents of the high-rise condominium building in the city's Pearl District where he resides, which has been a frequent site of protests in recent months, OregonLive.com reported.  "I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position," Wheeler wrote, according to an image of the email that was sent to the news outlet.  Incidents at the 16-story building have included a violent clash Monday that saw crowd members breaking windows and setting fires near the property, OregonLive.com reported.

Portland Cops Finally Come To Life, Take Down ANTIFA HARD.  Portland police called tonight's protest a RIOT after ANTIFA members attacked a dentist office next to Mayor Wheeler's apartment.  Portland PD was filmed rushing Black Bloc members, tackling some.  One officer was seen pounding some face as well.  After over 3 months of abuse at the hands of ANTIFA, as well as a Trump supporter assassination, we may have come to a tipping point.  [Video clip]

Green Bay Police:  Antifa Member with Flamethrower Cried in Fetal Position When Caught.  A suspected member of Antifa — who was allegedly armed with a flamethrower — cried in the fetal position before his arrest during a Saturday evening protest in Green Bay, Wisconsin, according to law enforcement. [...] "It's worrisome when people associated with Antifa come here to Green Bay from out of town for the purpose of protesting here or for the purposes of committing violent acts," said Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith.  "An unlawful assembly is three or more people who gather in such a manner where property damage, or personal injury is likely to occur," Smith added.

Kenosha Was a Wake-Up Call for Democratic Leaders across the Country.  After a summer of seemingly unending chaos in America's cities, Kenosha just may have been the tipping point.  For three nights, the city burned in rioting after the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, while Democratic governor Tony Evers refused to deploy a Wisconsin National Guard contingent large enough to quell the violence.  For three days, Evers issued inflammatory statement after inflammatory statement — even going so far as to say that a Kenosha police officer "mercilessly" shot Blake — and refused to either condemn the violence or urge calm.  Laughably, the sternest warning he gave rioters was to remind them to "wear your mask and keep social distance as best you can."

Teachers Unions Support Guillotines, Strikes & Closures Over Children's Welfare.  Americans are sometimes accused of ignorance over history and geography beyond their own shores.  It was no different last week after the Chicago Teachers Union tweeted support for a protest outside Jeff Bezos' home, where an effigy was placed in a guillotine.  However, any history teachers among them might have pointed out that the French Revolution ended up turning on its leaders.  The protestors, who were virtue signaling for a $30 minimum wage outside the house of a man who reputedly earns $4,000 a second, clearly had violence on their minds.

Portland's '100% Antifa' Killer Was Previously Arrested Twice for Illegal Possession of Loaded Firearm.  The left-wing agitator who allegedly shot a Trump supporter in Portland over the weekend, is a proud member of antifa who has been arrested and set free twice in recent months for charges that included the illegal possession of a handgun.  "I am 100% ANTIFA all the way!  I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters!" the alleged shooter, [...] posted on social media back in June.

The Democrat Party's Riots.  CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon have the collective brain capacity of rising third graders.  OK, fair point — there's no reason for me to insult our children like that.  But the one upside of the tumbleweeds blowing through their minds is that sometimes what the Left is really thinking accidentally rolls out of their mouths.  Don Lemon recently called on Joe Biden to make a speech addressing the riots and explaining how when it comes to reforming the police, he and Kamala Harris "will take care of this problem" after being elected.  "But guess what: the rioting has to stop."  Lemon then revealed the problem:  "Chris, as you know, and I know, it's showing up in the polling, it's showing up in focus groups.  It is the only thing — it is the only thing right now that is sticking."  Think about what he's really saying here.  "Rioting is fine — but only if it helps us win."

The Democrats' Laughable 'President Chaos' Strategy.  CNN's Don Lemon, one of the dumbest and [most eristic] Trump-haters, blurted out that as the polls were moving unfavorably, it might be wise for Democratic candidate Joe Biden to criticize mob violence, something he and his partisans had conspicuously failed to do at their convention the week before.  He did this within a day of his colleague Brian Stelter, who will enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the frequency of his utterance in reference to President Trump in the last three years, "The walls are closing in," righteously wagging his glabrous head at the viewers as he told them that the urban guerrilla violence sweeping the country really was "peaceful protest."  The same assurance was given by correspondents of CNN and the other anti-Trump networks reporting from riot-torn cities, even as largely minority-owned businesses torched by the "peaceful protesters" belched flame and smoke behind them.

Report: Portland Shooting Suspect '100% Antifa'; Cited, Released on Weapons Charge in July Riot.  The Oregonian reported Sunday night that the man under investigation in Saturday's fatal shooting of a right-wing protester after a pro-Trump caravan in Portland is a supporter of Black Lives Matter and Antifa who was arrested on weapons charges and released earlier this year.  The victim of the attack has been reported to be Aaron Danielson, known also as "Jay." [...] Many of the rioters who have been arrested in Portland over the past several months have been released shortly thereafter.

Democrats have directly encouraged violence on the streets.  Winding it back isn't going to be easy.  Protests and riots have spiraled out of control in the US.  However, these aren't spontaneous demonstrations.  Instead they're egged on by Democrats, who seem hell-bent on burning America to the ground.  To those fed a diet of mainstream media disinformation, the protests sweeping the US are just that:  protests.  They're grassroots affairs, expressions of discontent and resentment at a status quo that oppresses African Americans and denies them the rights and privileges afforded to whites.  That may have been true for all of about a day following the death of George Floyd back in May, and some of the protesters no doubt still feel that they're fighting the good fight.  But far more have taken to the streets to commit brazen acts of violence, looting, and criminality.  Thousands have been injured, and more than 32 people have been killed, [...] If any Democrat can claim credit for inspiring violent street harassment, it's California Congresswoman Maxine Waters.  Back in 2018, Waters told her supporters that if they come across an ally of President Donald Trump in public, "you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."  [Video clip]

Is it now okay to kill people we find offensive?  The use of guns is becoming a common feature of the protests and violence raging in many parts of the United States.  The way in which the Wisconsin city of Kenosha has been turned into a veritable warzone suggests that some people now see destructive behaviour as a way of gaining attention or making a point.  The recent shooting dead of a man in Portland, Oregon highlights the growing trend for dehumanising people who are on the other side of the political divide.  In this instance protesters celebrated the fact that a 'Nazi' had been killed.  The man was a member of the right-wing organisation Patriot Prayer — which means social media was soon full of claims that it was only a piece of 'fascist scum' who got killed. [...] What disturbed me most about the shooting of this member of Patriot Prayer was not simply the taking of a life but the manner in which it was reported and discussed.  Numerous commentators treated it as no big deal.

Suspect Identified In Portland Murder.  The Oregonian reports that a suspect has been identified in the murder Sunday night of Aaron Danielson, a Donald Trump supporter, in Portland: [...] The effort by Joe Biden and the Democrats to blame leftist violence on President Trump is contemptible, but doomed to failure.

Six Arrested for Assaulting Cops as Disorder Reigns in D.C..  Six people were arrested for assaulting police officers in Washington, D.C., over the weekend as the nation's capital was gripped by the worst unrest it has seen since early June.  The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department arrested a total of 27 over the course of a chaotic four days, which began Thursday as protesters grew violent after President Donald Trump broadcast his acceptance of renomination for the presidency from the White House lawn.  In total, 15 MPD officers sustained injuries, Chief of Police Peter Newsham announced during a press conference Monday, including one officer whose nose was broken.

Portland's left-wing turns on Mayor Ted Wheeler.  Left-wing groups in Oregon demanded Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler resign after the death of a right-wing protester over the weekend, saying Mr. Wheeler has allowed the city to spiral out of control.  Portland's Democratic Socialists of America, Oregon's chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Portland's Resistance and other groups said they feel Mr. Wheeler has sided with the right wing folks over them.  They lamented the man killed Saturday — a member of the right-wing Patriot Prayer organization, according to fellow members — but said his death after a day of clashes between the right and left was Mr. Wheeler's fault.

Man Charged With Stalking, Threatening Devin Nunes' Wife, An Elementary School Teacher.  A criminal complaint was filed against a California man earlier this month for sending threatening messages to Elizabeth Nunes, wife of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who is the ranking member on the powerful House Intelligence Committee and one of the driving forces behind exposing the false narrative that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.  A misdemeanor criminal complaint was filed on August 13, 2020, against William Joseph Burden (also known as William Joseph Terrell) after he allegedly sent threats and harassed Elizabeth, identified only as "E.N."  in the complaint obtained by The Daily Wire, which can exclusively report that E.N. does, in fact, stand for Elizabeth Nunes.  Burden is accused of "unlawfully, and with intent to annoy," calling or electronically contacting Elizabeth with "obscene language," including a "threat to inflict injury" to her or her property and family.

Trump suggests 'some very stupid rich people' are funding protest groups, rioters at RNC and across US.  President Trump told Fox News' Laura Ingraham in an exclusive interview Monday night that he believes demonstrations outside the White House on the final night of the Republican National Convention last week were bankrolled by "some very stupid rich people."  Trump added on "The Ingraham Angle" that an RNC attendee had traveled to Washington "on a plane from a certain city, and in the plane it was almost completely loaded with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms with gear and this and that."  The president declined to say who had told him the story, but promised Ingraham he would reveal it "sometime."

'Antifa' militants set fire to black-owned business in Portland, bombard mayor's apartment with fireworks.  A crowd of roughly 200 people surrounded Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler's home and demanded his resignation.  After multiple fires were lit and nearby businesses looted for fuel, police declared a riot.  On the 96th consecutive night of protests in Portland since the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police in May, hundreds of protesters, agitators and activists gathered outside the mayor's home in the Pearl District condominium tower demanding his resignation.  The crowd reportedly wore party hats, it was the mayor's birthday on Monday, and sang "happy tear gas to you" while they launched fireworks at the building before a bonfire fire was lit in the middle of the street.

FBI says dozens of Chicago street gangs formed 'pact' to kill any cop seen drawing weapon on suspect — report.  The FBI has issued an alert to Chicago police warning that nearly three dozen street gangs may have struck an agreement to shoot any officer seen with their gun drawn in public "on-site," according to a local news report.  FBI officials in Chicago recently issued a "situational information report" to Chicago law enforcement, pointing to a possible multi-gang pact to gun down officers in the streets, a local ABC affiliate reported on Monday [8/31/2020].  "Members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties," the FBI alert said.

Must See Video Shows Democrats Continually Called for Uprisings and Violence.  Democrats and the media have made a sudden turn the last few days.  After months of excusing the riots and even actively encouraging them, the new narrative is that it's all Trump's fault.  They ignore that Trump has offered assistance to Portland, for example, and has been viciously rebuffed even as the city continues to suffer chaos.  They also ignore that when Gov. Evers did accept Trump's help in Kenosha, the violence dwindled almost immediately.  No matter, though.  The media believe they are the vanguards of information and the Democrats know they have them in their pocket.  So you get insanity like this must-see video which succinctly shows just who has really been stoking the flames.  [Video clip]

Americans chant 'Death to America' in streets of Oakland.  A large group of demonstrators took to the streets in Oakland over the weekend to protest alleged systemic racism in part by chanting "Death to America," which drew a heavy negative response.  Several videos of the protests were posted online to social media, and a number of people expressed their disagreement — not with the act of protesting, but with the message.  "The left has created a monster that they have lost complete control of," Jason Howerton wrote.  "I never thought I'd see people chanting "death to America" in the streets of America."

Here are Joe Biden Supporters Chanting 'Death to America' in Oakland.  In the olden days, "Death to America" was something you would hear in Iran.  Not Oakland.  But this is who Joe Biden supporters are now.  Call it Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or a ham sandwich.  It's all the left, and Joe Biden is the empty vessel the left is using right now, as Nancy Pelosi/Bernie Sanders try to "Weekend at Bernie's" Biden all the way to the White House.  He, and they, own this.

Joe Biden's America being burned down ... by Joe Biden's supporters.  Certainly, America is deeply divided today.  But every bit of the horrifying images and footage of burning, looting and violence we see today comes exclusively from Joe Biden's America.  The carnage in Joe Biden's America is the result of Democrat mayors and governors unwilling and unable to stand up to the lawless, rioting mob that outwardly claims it is motivated by the very same fevers and political positions that motivate Mr. Biden himself.  In fact, Mr. Biden's vice presidential pick, Sen. Kamala Harris, worked so hard to ingratiate herself with the increasingly unruly mob that she went on record a few weeks back raising money "to help post bail" for those arrested during the riots — riots they now claim to oppose.

Democrats Tell Supporters To Punch People Then Blame Trump When Riots Start.  Democrats have recently joined forces in blaming President Trump of fanning the flames of violence.  While this is nothing new, it is concerning evidence of a pattern among the left.  More particularly, the party that seeks to lead the nation is unwilling to take responsibility for the misdeeds of its members and is always looking to blame others.  Americans should not trust this party to lead them.  As reported by The Hill, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) recently slammed the president's scheduled visit to Kenosha, Wisconsin in wake of protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.  "I think his visit has one purpose and one purpose only, that is to agitate things and make things [worse]," said Bass.  "What happened in Portland, [was] you saw a parade of Trump supporters actively shooting paintballs at peaceful protesters, and the president, in my opinion, encourages that.  He actually retweeted the people firing paint guns, I think he only means to agitate things."

Democrats Sent Their Rent-A-Mob to Destroy Kenosha.  [Scroll down]  In Ferguson, Missouri, during the Michael Brown episode, those people were mostly from Oakland, California.  They are destroying downtown Ferguson, Missouri.  They were not from Ferguson, Missouri, and they were not from St. Louis.  Some of them were, but the vast majority weren't.  That's why there's a term for these people:  Rent-a-mob.  There are many who think that the primary funding source is George Soros.  Could be.  Don't know.  To me, it's enough to know that these people are not from Kenosha. [...] It is not native.  But the media want you to believe that it is the native citizenry that's erupting in outrage at Republicans and at Donald Trump.  When in fact, they're bused in.  They're paid for.  And a lot of it is known as to who is paying for them and so forth.  But just the fact that it's not legitimate is really all anybody needs to know.  It isn't legitimate, and it's not the result of whatever action took place.

Kenosha car dealership owner says nothing [was] done to prevent damage during unrest.  Unrest following the police shooting of Jacob Blake left vehicles and businesses throughout the downtown Kenosha area badly damaged, including one local car dealer that estimates its losses in the millions.  Car Source, a car dealer in the city, was attacked when a mob descended into its lot and begin smashing cars on the first night of unrest last Sunday.  There was an explosion and subsequent fire that spread from one vehicle to the next, one resident told Kenosha News.  "It was a terrifying time," said Josie Rodriguez, who lives next to Car Source.

Antifa Killer of Trump Supporter in Portland Was Arrested Last Month with a Gun But Charges Were Dropped.  We reported yesterday that the anonymous message board 4chan once again, beat the media to identifying a violent rioter. [...] Within minutes of the shooting, 4chan users got to work, and within hours, they had a name. [...] Now it is being reported that the shooter, Reinoehl, is a member of Antifa and was arrested at the Portland protests last month on allegations of possessing a loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest and interfering with police" but the charges were promptly dropped.

Suspect, 48, in fatal shooting of Patriot Prayer supporter describes himself as '100% ANTIFA'.  The suspect under investigation following the fatal shooting of a Patriot Prayer supporter has been named as a father-of-two who describes himself as '100% ANTIFA' and was previously cited for bringing a loaded gun to a different protest.  Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was named by The Oregonian Sunday evening as someone police are investigating.  He had already been accused of taking a loaded gun to an earlier Portland protest and social media posts show him attending Black Lives Matter protests.  [The suspect] has not been charged nor have police commented on his connection to Saturday night's violence but his relatives also told the local newspaper that he was the person in a video of running away from where Aaron Jay Danielson, a supporter of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer, had been shot dead.

Antifa man eyed in deadly Portland shooting took teen daughter to protests.  The Antifa security guard reportedly being probed in connection with the deadly shooting of a President Trump supporter in Portland was photographed at a rally the night before — alongside his baseball bat-wielding teenage daughter.  Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was pictured late Friday [8/28/2020] at a Black Lives Matter protest outside the condominium building that is home to the Oregon city's mayor, Ted Wheeler, The Oregonian said.  He caught the attention of a photographer because he was there with his 16-year-old daughter, who stood beside him carrying a dark baseball bat, the paper noted.

Man under investigation in fatal shooting after pro-Trump rally allegedly took loaded gun to earlier Portland protest.  A 48-year-old man who was accused of carrying a loaded gun at an earlier downtown Portland protest is under investigation in the fatal shooting Saturday night of a right-wing demonstrator after a pro-Trump rally.

Man suspected in deadly Portland shooting calls himself '100% ANTIFA'.  An ex-military man who calls himself "100% ANTIFA" and ready for "war" is being investigated over the deadly shooting of a President Trump supporter in Portland, according to a report.  Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, is being investigated over the death of Aaron Danielson, a "supporter" of the right-wing Patriot Prayer group who was part of a caravan of Trump supporters who flooded the city Saturday, police sources told The Oregonian.  He was identified in part by a distinctive tattoo on his neck of a "black power" fist — as well as a call from his estranged sister who recognized him in video and photos of the deadly attack, the paper said.

Pernicious incitement to looting being pushed by NPR.  The twisted logic of author Vicky Osterweil's new book, In Defense of Looting, would be laughable were it not so dangerous.  Yet it is being taken seriously by NPR and other media outlets that should know better.  In her interview with NPR featuring no pushback from the taxpayer-funded network's interviewer, Osterweil says of looting:  "You're mass shoplifting.  Most stores are insured; it's just hurting insurance companies on some level.  It's just money.  It's just property.  It's not actually hurting any people."  Nobody gets hurt.  At least, nobody Ms. Osterweil cares about.  Like the shop-owners with no insurance because they can't afford it.  And shop-owners whose insurance rates skyrocket or have their coverage dropped because of the increased risk.  How about the law-abiding residents of the community, who now have lost their stores and restaurants as well as their jobs when the owners move away and don't rebuild.

Latest Chicago and Minneapolis riots broke out over police killings that never happened.  How do you restore order when people start riots over injustices that never happened?  Tragically, as riots sparked by disinformation unfold in Minneapolis and Chicago, this is the question we now face as a country.  Things are spiraling out of control.  The riots that broke out in late May and June after the death of George Floyd in police custody were destructive beyond description.  At least 15 people were killed during the wanton arson and looting.  Meanwhile, thousands of businesses, many owned by people of color, were destroyed, looted, and vandalized.  The economic fallout of this violence will haunt riot-torn urban communities for decades.

Kenosha police arrest food distribution volunteers.  Nine people arrested by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for allegedly being outside agitators were in town city to distribute food to protesters, a director of the nonprofit kitchen said Saturday [8/29/2020].  Jennifer Scheurle, who serves on the board of directors for Riot Kitchen, based in Seattle, said Kenosha police were mistaken when they arrested the volunteers Wednesday for investigation of disorderly conduct.  "We're not there to stir up anything," Scheurle said.  "We just want to feed people.  We support protesters of any kind."  The nine were released from jail Friday on about $150 bail each, paid with the help of donations, she said.

Welcome to Antifastan.  Remind me never to visit Portland, Oregon.  Long associated with the brand of outré hipster leftism deliciously satirized in TV's Portlandia, Oregon's largest city is now a zone of mass political violence.  It isn't quite Beirut-on-the-Willamette, to be sure.  No suicide bombs are ripping through the farmers' market at Shemanski Park, and the city's radicals don't store rockets in schools and hospitals.  Even so, Portland is fast emerging as America's answer to those benighted lands where "politics" involves roving gangs of masked fanatics terrorizing the average citizen, checkpoints operated by the henchmen of competing extremisms, cityscapes divided by unbridgeable ethnic and sectarian fault lines, the central authority indifferent to the mayhem and powerless to stop it.

Jim Banks:  U.S. Must Stop Giving Taxpayer-Funded Unemployment Benefits to 'Antifa Thugs'.  Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) says American taxpayers should not be paying to provide federal unemployment benefits to "Antifa thugs" and those associated with Black Lives Matter (BLM) who have started riots across the United States.

Pressure mounts on Barr DOJ to identify funders, organizers of violent riots.  Conservative pressure is mounting on Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department to ratchet up investigations of violent rioters across the country, specifically to identify those funding and organizing the mayhem.  Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, made weekend appeals for DOJ to take action to cut off funding and logistical support for the groups of rioters that have terrorized and destroyed American cities for months.  "Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this.  And national Democrats need to confront it.  It's organized.  It's paid for.  It's violent.  It's not about Black lives or any lives; it's about anarchy and destruction," Paul wrote in a Fox News op-ed on Saturday.

175 arrested during civil unrest in Kenosha, 104 had addresses listed outside city, police say.  At least 175 people have been arrested during the recent civil unrest in Kenosha, Wis., with 102 having addresses listed outside of the city, according to numbers released by police on Sunday [8/30/2020].  The arrests were related to the protests that have occurred every night, and have sometimes turned into destructive rioting, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Aug. 23.  Kenosha Police said in a media release that the arrests were from people located in 44 cities, although authorities didn't elaborate which states they came from.  A total of 69 people were arrested for curfew violations.

4Chan Users Appear to Have Identified Portland Rioter Who Shot and Killed Trump Supporter.  The anonymous message board 4chan may have, once again, beat the media to identifying a violent rioter.  On Saturday night, a Portland Black Lives Matter militant shot and killed a member of the pro-Trump group Patriot Prayer.

New Video Angle Further Points to Targeted Murder of Trump Supporter In Portland.  As RedState reported earlier, a man was shot and killed in Portland, OR during the ongoing rioting in the city.  The person shot was apparently a Trump supporter participating in a counter-protest which started as a drive through by various vehicles.  Later in the evening, the victim in question was murdered in what appears to be cold-blood.  It also appears he was targeted.  The man was reportedly a member of "Patriot Prayer," which is a group that is constantly labeled as a dangerous "far-right" entity by the media when no evidence really exists to back that claim up.  Unlike the "Proud Boys," which actively look for fights, this group doesn't seem to be on that level.  The shooter has been possibly identified due to the very distinct vest he was wearing.

Portland BLM/Antifa Rioter Shoots And Kills Man Because He Supports Trump.  On Saturday night, a Trump-supporting man was shot and killed in Portland, Oregon, after a caravan of Trump supporters clashed with BLM/Antifa protesters (they have been identified as associated with either/both groups). [...] The victim was shot because he was a Trump supporter or at least thought to be a Trump supporter.  Just before he was shot, a BLM/Antifa protester screams, "We got a Trumper right there." Seconds later, another leftist shoots and kills, the alleged Trump supporter.  [Video clips]  When word got out that the victim was a Trump supporter, the BLM/Antifa terrorists celebrated.

Watch antifa dance with joy to the murder of Blue Lives Matter supporter.  A Trump supporter who participated in the Portland caravan rally was shot and killed in downtown Portland.  If the video below is accurate, he was murdered in cold blood.  The victim was wearing a Patriot Prayer hat.  The left says the Patriot Prayer is far-right but reporter Andy Ngo says they are conservatives.  Antifa and Black Lives Matter revolutionaries physically blocked the ralliers on the road and threw projectiles.  After the man's death was known, the communist-anarchist mob celebrated and danced.  "Portland Police officers heard sounds of gunfire from the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street.  They responded and located a victim with a gunshot wound to the chest.  Medical responded and determined that the victim was deceased," the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement.

Man 'in a Patriot Prayer hat' is shot dead in Portland during violent clashes between Trump supporters and BLM.  One person was shot dead in Portland on Saturday night as tensions between pro-Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter counter-protesters boiled over.  The victim was pictured lying on the ground wearing a Patriot Prayer baseball cap, appearing to show support for the far-Right group which is frequently present during Portland protests.  The Portland protest was one of many that Donald Trump's supporters staged across the country on Saturday, with hundreds of people congregating in Los Angeles, Georgia and beyond to celebrate their president and rally for his re-election.

Portland Black Lives Matter Monsters Cheer and Celebrate Murder of Patriot Prayer Member.  The rioters in Portland let their true colors shine on Saturday night as they cheered and celebrated the murder of a member of Patriot Front by one of their peers.  For a while, rumors were circulating online that a rioter had been killed by a supporter of President Donald Trump, but there was a big celebration when they found out it was actually the other way around.

Trump Unloads On Portland Democrat Mayor After He Refused Federal Help, Protester Killed.  President Donald Trump unloaded on Portland Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler on Sunday morning after a right-wing protester was killed in the city following Wheeler's decision to reject federal assistance from the Trump administration.  "The shooting happened after right-wing protesters drove trucks around the city with American flags and Trump flags and were met by far-left antifa activists who blocked traffic and threw things at the vehicles, which often elicited a response from the vehicles," The Daily Wire reported.  "Video of the attack that was posted online showed the shooting and, according to two journalists, appeared to show someone saying, 'we got a Trumper right here,' before two fatal shots were fired at the victim."

Trump supporter shot dead in downtown Portland.  On the 95th day of riots and protests in Portland, Ore., a Trump supporter was fatally shot.  He was identified by his "Patriot Prayer" hat and his shooting death was caught by multiple livestreamers.  [Video clips]  After the man was murdered, his death was celebrated as a victory over Trump, and the dead man was assumed to be a Nazi.

BLM/Antifa Celebrate the Killing of a Trump Supporter in Portland:  We 'Took Out The Trash,' Video of the Alleged Shooter.  On Saturday [8/29/2020], hundreds of Trump supporters gathered in the outskirts of Portland in a "Cruise Rally" in pick-up trucks with a lot of Trump 2020 flags decked out all over the cars.  After their rally, they then decided to drive into Portland.  They were set upon, in the words of the media, by "counter-protesters" otherwise known as radical leftists/Antifa folk.  Leftist tried to block some of the cars, other cars they threw things at, threatened or stole flags from.  Some of the Trump supporters defended themselves with pepper spray or paintball guns.  There were multiple fights between the two groups.

Corporate Media Didn't Report What It's Really Like In Kenosha, Wisconsin, So I Will.  Kenosha became a very different place after police shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times.  Subsequent video footage showed that Blake was armed with a knife and had been wrestling with officers, threw off a Taser, and was disregarding police commands to stop after they were called to address a domestic violence complaint.  Following the shooting that left Blake paralyzed, rioting erupted in the city.  Although the first night was relatively peaceful, after the second night, things were "spiraling out of control," said Steil.  Fire and looting consumed uptown and downtown Kenosha, and Steil said the city was no longer the "Kenosha we know."  In uptown Kenosha, on Tuesday night, a woman, who said she has lived in Kenosha for more than 40 years, broke down in tears, saying her city felt like a "war zone" and she was "terrified."

The Attempt to Overthrow America.  The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 might appear, looking back, as a pretext for mayhem.  His reported killing by a white police officer was immediately followed by a wave of riots during which neighborhoods in several major cities were devastated.  Stores were looted, buildings were burned and people were murdered as mayors and other local public officials chose to let the rioters run wild, whip up racial conflict and protect the criminals rather than the citizens being brutalized.  The riots quickly appeared to have nothing to do with Floyd's death and everything to do with groups seeking to overthrow America.  In the past, members of the radical organization Antifa had committed acts of violence, but never before had been able to sow terror throughout major cities.  This time, they could and they did.

Florida Democrat suggests it's 'open season' on killing Republicans and President.  Politics is hardly ever pretty when it comes for folks racing toward an election, and thus that means the election for Florida's 18th congressional district is not immune from the likes of nasty rhetoric from people trying to get a seat at the table.  But when you have people calling for an "open season" for killing your political opponents, then that is where a line has been crossed.  The person who crafted a hypothetical call for murdering the likes of President Trump, Roger Stone and AG Bill Barr is Pam Keith.  This Democrat is vying to land Florida's congressional seat for the 18th district, [...]

Another night of obnoxious protesters has diners seeing — and likely voting — RED.  Political commentators warn Democrats that Black Lives Matter's mob-bullying of random people and attacks on Trump supporters will backfire bigly on them, since it's igniting support for President Trump.  During the past three months, BLM and Antifa thugs have threatened, beaten, and bullied Trump supporters and everyday Americans, trying to get them to bend the knee to their mob tactics.  One example is the escalating harassment of random people eating at restaurants.  Here's an alarming video showing aggressive BLM protesters threatening and harassing diners in Washington, D.C., a liberal city populated by Democrats.  [Video clip]

A Tyranny Perpetual and Universal?  [Scroll down]  All that, though, was child's play compared to the nightly horrors Antifa — and their BLM allies — have wreaked on America's streets for three straight months with close to zero official attempt to rein them in, and often with officials cheering them on.  Examples — from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to Governors Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo, and Tim Walz, to Mayors Bill de Blasio, Eric Garcetti, Lori Lightfoot, Jenny Durkan, Ted Wheeler, and Jacob Frey — are too numerous to catalog fully.  The latest atrocity came from Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, who, the instant a career criminal wanted on an active warrant was shot while resisting arrest and, it appears, reaching into his car for a knife, took to Twitter to fire up the mob.  His state's fourth-largest city has burned every night since.  It took him days to make even a token appeal for calm.

Portland Mob Shines Strobe Lights Into Ted Wheeler's Condo at Night.  On the ninety-third night of violent antifa riots in Portland, a group of protesters occupied the lobby of Mayor Ted Wheeler's (D-Portland) apartment building as a mob held a block party outside and activists shined strobe lights into Wheeler's window.  The mob demanded the complete abolition of the police by 2022.  Meanwhile, a group of rioters set fire to the Portland Police Association building, targeting the police union for what appears to have been the fourth time since the police killing of George Floyd.  This unrest came the day after Wheeler sent a letter to President Donald Trump, declining his offer to send federal officers.

Why Democrats and their liberal media minions are running scared.  The Democrats and their media handmaidens are starting to panic about Joe Biden's prospects.  The proof comes in their efforts to wish away the wave of crime and violence engulfing many American cities.  Their argument can be boiled down to two false claims.  First, it's President Trump's fault.  Second, it's not that big of a wave.  The first is patently absurd on its face.  Democratic mayors running nearly all those cities are pulling back cops and rejecting federal help.  The blood is on their hands.  The second claim is outrageously cold-hearted.  It means the left sees hundreds of murders, mostly of black men, and the wholesale destruction of property as small prices to pay for putting Biden in the White House.

Minneapolis: Rioter Chucks Trash Can Lid into Back of Officer's Head.  A video posted to social media on Thursday shows a Black Lives Matter rioter throwing a trash can lid at a police officer's head, knocking him to the ground.  A Minneapolis police officer was struck in the head with a trashcan lid and knocked to the ground on Wednesday night during instances of "confusion, unrest, looting and damage downtown," according to a report by Fox 9.  Protests, looting, and riots have sparked in cities across the country since late May, starting in Minneapolis, where George Floyd died in police custody.  Amid Black Lives Matter protests, extremist activists have repeatedly assaulted police officers, sometimes fatally.

The Chaos in Urban America Is Bad Now — But Can Only Get Worse With Biden.  People used to accuse Democrats of being "soft on crime."  Now, Democrat-run cities can't even properly identify crime, let alone punish it.  (Except, perhaps, the ultimate sin of defending your life and home from the mob).  The eccentric, oddball, strange and perverse crew of mayors that run these urban cesspools are intransigent in their refusal to fight crime.  President Donald Trump is increasingly at war with America's Democrat-run cities — but only because their mayors refuse to fight the war with the crime on their streets.  This week, the President announced that he was sending 200 federal agents to Chicago and Kansas City.  He has already sent U.S. Customs Border Security guards to Portland in an attempt to alleviate the lawlessness and chaos in that city.  At least he can still distinguish between legitimate protest and rioting.  Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, apparently, cannot.

Concrete barriers put up around Seattle Police East Precinct after arson, vandalism.  People going by the Seattle Police Department East Precinct on Capitol Hill will notice some big changes to the building, including the installation of concrete barriers.  Over the next several days, the precinct will be undergoing structural upgrades in an effort to "protect the facility from arson and other damages" as well as protect officers inside and residents who live nearby, according to a statement from city of Seattle officials on Friday.

Facts emerging on Jacob Blake shooting contradict the narrative that sparked riots.  It is stunning how many recent riots over purported racial injustice have been based on phony stories.  Ferguson, Missouri was pillaged and burned over the false contention that Michael Brown was gunned down with his hands up (the Obama Justice Department confirmed that he was struggling to kill the police officer arresting him for a strongarm robbery he had just committed by grabbing his gun when he was fatally shot).  Baltimore was sacked over the contention that Freddie Gray was assassinated by police officers deliberately tossing him around in a police van (a jury acquitted the officers).  Just this past week, rioters looted downtown Minneapolis on the false story that police had gunned down a suspect who had, in fact, committed suicide.  Which was captured on surveillance video.  Yet, Target, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom were still looted.

Owner of Brit's Pub says downtown Minneapolis no longer safe for customers.  The morning after more civil unrest struck Downtown Minneapolis, businesses are assessing the damage to their property and starting to pick up the pieces.  One of those trying to figure out what comes next is Kam Talebi, owner and CEO of Kaskaid Hospitality, the parent company that owns Brit's Pub on Nicollet Mall, along with several other restaurants incuding Crave, Union and BLVD.  Talebi spoke to News Talk 830 WCCO's Mark Freie outside of Brit's Thursday morning where looters broke into the building, eventually starting a fire inside the complex.  Talebi tells WCCO the pub is devastated.

Antifa are the Ugliest Americans to Have Ever Existed.  Antifa are undoubtedly the ugliest Americans to have ever existed.  It is no wonder why they are angry, they look like some of the most miserable people you would ever meet.  In this article, we will present to you some of the sorriest looking Americans you have ever seen.


Bongino shows video of him and wife harassed by 'paid, organized mob of lunatics'.  Fox News contributor and leading conservative podcaster Dan Bongino and his wife were two of several people harassed by mobs of protesters as they left the White House Thursday after President Donald Trump's speech to close out the Republican National Convention.  On Friday [8/28/2020], the former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent shared video of the incident involving a number of people he described as "BLM terrorists" harassing him and insulting his wife, Paula.

Antifa.com now redirects to Joe Biden's campaign website.  [Scroll down]  Joining the dots, it looks like some actual Antifa "non organisation" got enough serious money to buy this domain in Jan 2020.  It went live with english text and german Antifa logo in the week after the Floyd homicide.

When Will Sen. Kamala Harris Condemn The Attack On Her Colleague Rand Paul?  Now that the GOP convention is over, we can take a deep breath and relax to catch our collective breath in the anticipation of sprinting to the finish line with the election only 67 days away.  Unless, of course, you are a recognizable political figure in ANY American city with a roaming BLM mob just lurking around being peaceful waiting to go not so peaceful.  My colleague Jennifer Van Laar covered the video earlier today of Sen. Rand Paul and his wife literally being surrounded by a mob threatening them and the D.C. police protecting them with their bodies.  [Link to video clip]  The video above clearly shows that a recognizable elected official and his spouse were put in danger by people who are radicals and obviously supporters of Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris.

Homeland Security Secretary Confirms ANTIFA Meets Standards Of Domestic Terrorism.  Chad Wolf, the current Secretary of Homeland Security made a public statement yesterday clarifying that Antifa "absolutely" meets the standards to be classified as domestic terrorists.  "The issue with ANTIFA," said Wolf, "it's not just one singular group.  It's a loosely knit organization that's very hard to define, very hard to define who's a part of it."  He also stated, "I think what we see with them individually targeting law enforcement, individually targeting certain officials for certain reasons, that is the definition of domestic terrorism."  There is a growing public concern regarding ANTIFA and it's recurring involvement in violent incidents all over the US, and indeed, in Canada and in many other places in the world.  Recently, even top brass at Facebook finally realized that ANTIFA were promoting violence, and shut down many of their accounts and groups.

Jim Banks to Introduce Legislation That Strips Rioters of Unemployment Benefits, Makes Them Pay For Police.  [Congressman Jim] Banks appeared on local radio for an interview about the Support Peaceful Protest Act on Friday [8/28/2020], and talked about what led him to craft the legislation.  "Antifa thugs are descending on suffering communities, disrupting peaceful protests and leaving violence, looting and vandalism in their wake.  They turned Milwaukee, Seattle and Portland into warzones, and now they're moving the chaos to Kenosha, Wisconsin," Banks said.  "Who knows which community is next?"  "Due to enhanced federal benefits, taxpayers are giving wages to jobless rioters that are destroying our communities.  We need to cut them off from their funding and make them feel the full financial consequences of their actions."  Banks also noted that "Many of these people are not working.  They have the time to show up every day at some of these violent protests like in Washington, D.C. and they're getting $600 a week of unemployment to do it, and that's got to stop."

Portland goes eerily silent after reports the FBI is hot on Antifa's tail.  According to journalist Andy Ngo, who's been on the ground in Portland, Oregon throughout the past three months of left-wing rioting, Thursday evening marked "the first time in 93 days" that downtown Portland didn't succumb to rioting.  In a tweet posted early Friday morning [8/28/2020], he speculated that the silence may be a result of reports that the FBI's Portland branch has begun actively investigating the Black Lives Matter and Antifa extremists responsible for the rioting.

The Editor says...
The riots can be stopped in a matter of minutes, just by enforcing the law and arresting the rioters.  In this case, the word got out, and the thugs and vandals didn't want to play the game any more if there was a substantial threat of incarceration.

19 Videos of Left-Wing Protesters Harassing People After the Republican National Convention.  Protesters harassed people in the streets of Washington, DC, following the last night of the Republican National Convention at the White House.  Many of the individuals harassed were Republican politicians and RNC guests who were leaving the convention's closing ceremonies and were met by protesters shoving, cursing, and shouting Black Lives Matter slogans at them.  Breitbart News reporters and various others on the scene captured video of the confrontations.

Videos Show Kenosha Protesters Burn Flag, Shout 'Kill the [...] Police' and 'Death to America'.  Another city is burning this week as America-hating anarchists riot under the guise of fighting racial injustice and police brutality.  This time, it's happening in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where violence erupted in the streets after police shot 29-year-old Jacob Blake on Sunday [8/23/2020].  The exact circumstances are still unclear, though initial video evidence shows that police, who were were responding to the scene of a domestic disturbance call, shot Blake after he apparently ignored their commands, walked toward his vehicle and appeared to reach inside of it.

Seattle Antifa group arrested in Kenosha with riot gear, controlled substances.  Members of Riot Kitchen 206, "a no charge kitchen serving protestors, activists, movements and those in need in Seattle WA" have been arrested by authorities in Kenosha, Wisconsin after police suspected that they were "...preparing for criminal activity related to the civil unrest."  Kenosha police released a statement following the arrests that acting on a tip, they had surveilled the vehicles with out of state plates fuelling gas cans.  The vehicles contained gas masks, helmets, protective vests, illegal fireworks and suspected controlled substances.

Police arrest 8 during DC protests, including 5 for allegedly assaulting officers.  Police in Washington, D.C., arrested eight people, including five accused of assaulting police officers, during protests late Thursday night into Friday in the wake of President Trump's Republican National Convention speech at the White House, police said.  The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) arrested people ranging in age from 18 to 37 early Friday, according to MPD data, after hundreds gathered around the White House on Thursday night during and after Trump's Republican presidential nomination speech at the RNC.

NPR Claims That Calling a Riot a "Riot" is Racist.  NPR published an article claiming that calling a riot a "riot" is offensive because it's "rooted in racism."  Yes, really.  The article was written by Jonathan Levinson for Oregon Public Broadcasting, the Portland NPR affiliate.  Portland has experienced 93 days of continuous rioting — last night was the first time in that entire period that the city has not seen unrest — but according to Levinson, merely calling a spade a spade is a racist dog whistle.  Levinson's argument for this position is vague to the point of being non-existent.  He appears upset that police are able to declare a riot and use crowd control measures to disperse violent BLM mobs.

The Fools of Kenosha.  On Sunday [8/23/2020], a black man named Jacob Blake was shot seven times by a police officer in Kenosha after Blake refused to comply with his orders.  The details of what happened remain murky.  We know that the cops were called in response to a complaint by a woman who claimed that Blake had taken her keys; we know that there was a warrant out for Blake that cited sexual assault, trespassing, and disorderly conduct; and we know that Blake had a knife "in his possession" at the time of the shooting.  Beyond that, however, we remain largely in the dark.  The nature of these cases depends heavily on the details, and, at the moment, those details are few and far between.  One would not know this by the reaction.  Within hours of the video of the shooting hitting the Internet, the city of Kenosha was on fire.  Cars were torched.  Businesses were destroyed.

Rand Paul, BLM and DC's street harassment laws.  Over the past week, Washington, DC has turned into a truly dystopian nightmare.  Diners at several area restaurants, including the famous Martin's Tavern in Georgetown, were accosted by a Black Lives Matter mob that bullied them into raising their fists in solidarity with the movement.  Restaurant patrons who refused to comply faced further verbal abuse and harassment.  The trend continued outside the White House on Thursday night.  Attendees of President Trump's acceptance speech during the Republican National Convention were thrown to the wolves as they left the event, and were chased and screamed at as they made their way back to their hotels.  Kentucky senator Rand Paul and his wife Kelly received some of the most aggressive harassment.  Police officers formed a human barricade to protect them from the protesters, who repeatedly shoved the officers and threatened the senator.

This is why Jacob Blake had a warrant out for his arrest.  The cops involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake — which touched off a fresh wave of angry, anti-police sentiment across the country — were attempting to arrest him for violating a restraining order stemming from an alleged sexual assault, The [New York] Post has learned.  Blake, 29, was forbidden from going to the Kenosha home of his alleged victim from the May 3 incident, and police were dispatched Sunday following a 911 call saying he was there.  The responding officers were aware he had an open warrant for felony sexual assault, according to dispatch records and the Kenosha Professional Police Association, which released a statement on the incident on Friday [8/28/2020].  That police union statement also claimed that Blake was armed with a knife at the time of the shooting — and had put one cop in a headlock and shrugged off two Taser attempts while resisting arrest.

Lotus Restaurant owner describes intense confrontation with looters.  In the height of all the looting in downtown Minneapolis Wednesday night, one restaurant owner had an enormous decision to make.  Watching his business being destroyed, he pulled out his gun during an intense confrontation, before ultimately deciding not to pull the trigger.  The Nguyen family started the Lotus Restaurant in 1984.  It's the American dream, which was almost shattered in one night by a few people looking to destroy their hard work.

It's a little late now, isn't it?
Democrats worry about voter backlash in suburbs.  Democratic strategists are worried scenes of violence in Kenosha, Wis., and the "defund the police" debate could give Republicans and President Trump a boost with suburban voters.  The issue has come back to the forefront amid new incidents of violence, property destruction and protests this week after another unarmed Black man, Jacob Blake, was shot in the back by a police officer.  Some Democrats worry the continuing unrest could give Trump an opening with swing voters in Wisconsin and other key states that voted for Trump in 2016.

Anchorage man whose brother was killed in a police shooting faces federal arson charges linked to fire at Seattle police building.  A 19-year-old Anchorage resident whose younger brother died in a shooting by police in February now faces a federal arson charge for setting a fire outside a Seattle police station with officers inside.  Desmond David-Pitts was arrested early Tuesday morning in Seattle during protests over Sunday's police shooting that paralyzed Wisconsin resident Jacob Blake.  Police broke up a crowd of protesters in the Capitol Hill area, the Seattle Times reported.  Some climbed over a chain-link fence and set a fire next to the building, the Seattle Police Department said in an online post.  "Individuals also placed quick-drying cement in exterior precinct door locks."

BLM in D.C. Assault People in Streets, Accost People Leaving Republican Convention Including Vernon Jones, Brian Mast.  President Donald Trump gave his final acceptance speech of the RNC acceptance at the White House on Thursday evening with many people in attendance on the lawn.  But outside the White House, the BLM mob was gathering.  The BLM had hoped to be so loud that that they might drown out the event.  They failed at that which made them incredibly frustrated as one can see in this picture.  [Numerous photos and video clips]

Father of Man Murdered by CHAZ Security Files $3 Billion Lawsuit Against Seattle Authorities.  The father of a 19-year old man who was shot dead in Seattle's now-defunct Capital Hill Autonomous Zone is filing lawsuits against state and local government, accusing the authorities of enabling the death of Lorenzo Anderson by tacitly permitting the self-declared anarchist commune to exist in downtown Seattle.  Horace Anderson is Lorenzo's father.

Rand Paul calls for FBI arrests, investigation into 'mob' he believes 'would have killed us,' if not for police.  Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told "Fox & Friends" he believes he would have been killed if not for the police when he and his wife were surrounded and attacked by a "mob" yelling threats and pushing police upon exiting the White House after President Trump's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) Thursday night [8/27/2020].  "It was horrific," the Republican senator — who had part of his lung removed due to a complication from the 2017 assault by his neighbor — told host Steve Doocy of the "unhinged" mob that continued to get bigger and bigger.

BLM Mob Starts Looting to Protest Police Brutality After Black Murder Suspect Commits Suicide.  It appears Black Lives Matter activists are so anxious for an excuse to riot that they won't even make sure the police were the ones who pulled the trigger when a black man loses his life.  On Wednesday night, a large crowd started breaking windows and looting stores like Target at Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis following news of a black man dying after police pursued him.  As it turned out, the man was a suspect in a murder case and he committed suicide to avoid arrest.

Antifa's 'Riot Kitchen' gets busted.  Who knew that looters had their own food trucks?  Who would have guessed that Antifa had its own soup kitchen to come to after working up an appetite after a hard day's rioting?  Turns out they did, and when they headed out to Kenosha, Wisconsin, the cops shut them down. [...] Turns out the "Riot Kitchen," — yes, it's really called that — may have had some unusual cuisine on its menu:  ["]Police said they recovered helmets, gas masks, protective vests, illegal fireworks and suspected controlled substances from the vehicles.  Nine people were arrested on disorderly conduct charges.  Police did not immediately release their names.["]  The cops said they busted the leftist food truck for being "suspicious" after its denizens broke curfew and were seen buying a lot of gasoline at a gas station, apparently in cans.

Sen. Rand Paul thanks DC cops for saving him from 'crazed mob' after RNC.  U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said he was attacked by a "crazed mob" of more than 100 people after leaving the White House following President Trump's acceptance speech at the Republican Convention.  "Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House, he wrote on Twitter early Friday.  "Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob."  Video on social media appeared to show a crowd chasing and jeering Paul, who was escorted by D.C. police as he returned to his hotel.  An officer was captured on video being shoved by a protester and was nearly knocked over.  Paul appeared to help steady the officer.

Chaos v.  Order on the Ballot — Again.  Richard J. Daley, the old-school mayor of Chicago, told the city's superintendent during the riots that followed Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination to "shoot to kill any arsonists" and "shoot to maim or cripple anyone looting." [...] They don't make Democrats like they used to.  But occasionally years, and usually not the good ones, reincarnate.  Vice President Mike Pence summed up 2020 as "this year like no other" during his Republican National Convention speech this week.  But a 1968 vibe, when riots challenged a shared ethos of law, order, and patriotism, reverberates in the 2020 campaign.

74 face federal charges from Portland protests.  Seventy-four people are now facing federal charges related to protests that have rocked Portland, Oregon, for three months since George Floyd was killed.  The misdemeanor and felony charges include assaults on federal officers, arson and damaging federal property.

Biden Faces Backlash For Misleading Attack On Trump Regarding Violence In Democrat Cities.  Biden's attack, featured in a tweet, came in response to Trump hammering him during the Republican National Convention on the issue of violence in the inner cities.  "We must never allow mob rule, we can never allow mob rule," Trump said.  "In the strongest possible terms, the Republican Party condemns the rioting, looting, arson, and violence we have seen in Democrat run cities all, like Kenosha, Minneapolis, Portland, Chicago, and New York, and many others Democrat-run.  There is violence and danger in the streets of many Democrat-run cities throughout America."  "This problem could easily be fixed if they wanted to," Trump continued.  "Just call; we are ready to go in.  We will take care of your problem in a matter of hours.  Just call.  We have to wait for the call.  It's too bad we have to, but we have to wait for the call.  We must always have law and order."

The Democrats Face the Inferno They Created.  With Antifa, the paramilitary arm of the Democratic Party, BLM, its ideological arm, and the media, its propaganda arm, the Democrats have confected a riotous monster they are no longer able to control.  When you allow people to run rampant in the streets with no repercussions, the anarchy, looting, and arson that result awakens within the faux revolutionaries their "woke muscles," allowing them to feel "big," and, most importantly, in charge.  Breaking stuff and burning stuff is fun.  Looting is not only fun, but profitable.  Being able to order people around is empowering.  For the aspiring sociopaths roaming free in our streets, hurting people with impunity is a dream come true.  Why would they ever want to stop now?  Democrats will now seek to add tepid disapproval of rioting and rioters to their active and avowed support of protestors just as Americans have come to the conclusion that they are one and the same, and are beginning to take to the streets to fight back.  At some point, Americans will have had enough and are going to confront the attackers themselves.

Narrative Set on 'Vigilante White Supremacist Militia' Shooter.  Yesterday [8/26/2020] Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of shooting three rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and injuring one, was arrested.  He was charged with first-degree intentional homicide.  President Trump has since sent in the feds and the national guard after the useless governor of Wisconsin previously turned down offers of support.  Hooligans are rioting because a black man with a criminal record of violence was shot by cops when he resisted arrest, marched to his car and appeared to reach into grab something.  A knife was found in the car.  Was Jacob Blake was trying to grab a gun?  I wouldn't want to wait and find out.

Kenosha Burning.  Antifa/#BlackLivesMatter rioters seem determined to riot in every city in America (or at least every Democrat-controlled city), and this week it was the turn of Kenosha, Wisconsin, a city of some 100,000 on the shores of Lake Michigan between Chicago and Milwaukee, two other cities that have gotten to experience the same violence. [...] The man over whom rioters were destroying Kenosha was a repeat offender wanted on 3rd degree sexual assault charges and accused of rape.

Craven Democrats invite violence.  An army of lawyers descended on the Wisconsin city of Kenosha on Tuesday to prey on the family of Jacob Blake and fan the flames of mob violence.  Sure enough, a few hours later, two people were shot dead in another night of rioting, arson and destruction, spurred on by politicians, lawyers and other faithless opportunists.  Another Democrat-run American city suffering at the hands of the violent BLM-Antifa wing of the Democratic Party, which has been deputized to influence the outcome of the November election.  After two nights of mayhem, the predatory attorneys, led by George Floyd lawyer Ben Crump, staged a press conference designed to maximize anger about Sunday's police shooting of Blake, who reportedly was wanted on warrants for domestic violence and sexual assault, and appeared on video to be resisting arrest.

Waking the Sleeping Giant.  [Scroll down]  None of this is a surprise to anyone who is actually paying attention, regardless of what side you vote for.  If you don't see how lawless and dangerous the riots have become, then you're not willing to see.  On a daily basis, the police are being attacked with rocks, frozen water bottles, bricks, Molotov cocktails, improvised explosive devices, and all manner of other weapons.  The attacks are coming from "peaceful protesters" clad in military style body armor and riot gear and are being directed at anyone who displeases them or seems to disagree with their narrative.  Or for that matter, anyone who is just trying to pass by, either on foot or in their vehicle. [...] In several instances, Antifa has been very promptly and swiftly (and sometimes violently) ejected from towns or neighborhoods who knew what their intentions were and collectively decided to take a stand.  Those stories are wonderful to hear, because to me it means that regular people — you know, those crazy people who have jobs, families, responsibilities, maybe faith in God and a love of their country — are starting to tire of the violence and overall nonsense.

Cornered murder suspect kills himself; mob accuses police of killing him and sets off looting downtown Minneapolis.  Last night offered a warp speed example of mob violence triggered by utterly bogus charges of police misbehavior resulting in the sack of the premier shopping district of a major American city.  The disgraceful incident happened in Minneapolis, where I grew up, and there is a personal connection to one of the targets of the phony outrage that I will explain below.  The incident began just after 6 PM, when a murder suspect killed himself rather than be apprehended by police.  The incident was captured on surveillance cameras which the police quickly shared with local news outlets. [...] Three was no doubt that police were blameless, but that did not stop bystanders from immediately castigating the police with the same sort of bogus claims that led to mob violence in Ferguson, MO and elsewhere, even as they attended to the bleeding corpse of the suicided perp.

Lefties trying to get Tucker Carlson fired over Kenosha commentary.  Last night provided more evidence that Tucker Carlson is the most important political commentator of the current crisis.  Ankle biting critics, jealous of his status as host of the eponymous top-rated cable news show, seized upon perfectly reasonable comments he made on Wednesday's edition of his show and launched a campaign to boycott his advertisers (they are close forcing me to buy one of Mike Lindell's pillows) and thereby pressure Fox News into cancelling him.  Tucker proudly tweeted out the segment in question, with Twitter cautioning viewers that it may be sensitive and [requiring an] extra click in order to view the 7 minutes or so.  His tweet summarized his point, that when authorities stand down and allow mob rule, the situation devolves into violent anarchy, with people taking up arms to defend themselves, with terrible consequences.

Minneapolis homicide suspect reportedly commits suicide, as angry crowd suspects police shooting and riots.  A homicide suspect reportedly took his own life near Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis on Wednesday, August 26, according to local police.  In the aftermath of the suicide, people gathered around the scene and rumors spread on social media that the man was shot by police.  To refute social media rumors that the man was shot by police, Minneapolis police held a press conference and shared video of the incident from a city surveillance camera.  [Video clip]

Video Of Black Murder Suspect Who Shot And Killed Himself In Minn.  That Caused Mass Looting.  Gov. Tim Walz mobilized the Minnesota National Guard on Wednesday night after people looted downtown Minneapolis businesses, in the wake of a homicide suspect shooting himself.  Police released a graphic video, which showed the man's suicide, after a crowd gathered and believed it was the police who killed the suspect.  [Video clip]

Thugs Loot The Nicollet Mall In Minneapolis After Black Suspect Kills Himself.  Hundreds descended into the heart of downtown Minneapolis Wednesday night to decry the death of a man who killed himself on Nicollet Mall as police closed in on him, sparking unrest and property damage along the corridor and leading to a National Guard mobilization.  Police almost immediately shared surveillance video of the suicide, but it did little to calm the crowds who broke windows at retail stores, restaurants, bars and coffee shops, prompting Gov. Tim Walz to declare a Peacetime Emergency in the City of Minneapolis and mobilize the Minnesota National Guard.  [Video clip]

Rioters Loot Saks 5th Avenue In Minn.  Because a Thug Killed Himself Before Cops Could Arrest Him.  A suspected gunman fatally shot himself Wednesday as Minneapolis police were moving in to arrest him for a slaying committed hours earlier, sparking looting in the downtown area, police told Fox News.  The man was with a female at a parking garage around 2 p.m. when they encountered another man, Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said.  The couple got into a confrontation with the man, who was fatally shot by the man who was with the woman.  [Video clip]

Third night of RNC 2020 puts the onus squarely on Joe Biden.  Mike Pence put it on the line in his speech on the third night of the Republican Convention:  "You will not be safe in Joe Biden's America."  As he spoke, Kenosha was reeling from the violence of the past four days while rioters were trashing Minneapolis yet again.  The embrace of law and order was one of the key themes of the night, and Pence was at his most dramatic as he said, "The violence must stop, whether in Minneapolis, Portland, or Kenosha.  Too many heroes have died defending our freedoms to see Americans strike each other down.  We will have law and order on the streets of America."  He said that the men and women of law enforcement "are the best of us," and that "we will always stand with those who stand on the thin blue line."

Mostly peaceful arson
CNN Chyron On Kenosha: 'Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Protests After Police Shooting'.  A CNN chyron reporting on the riots exploding in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during the early hours of Tuesday morning [8/25/2020] appeared to have gone unnoticed.  "Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Protests After Police Shooting," the news network's television headline blared while its reporter, Omar Jimenez, stood in front of several burning cars.  The footage features Jiminez explaining to viewers that while the city burns to the ground behind him, the so-called protesters destroying the blue-collar midwestern town were being "mostly peaceful."


Positive Signs.  Democrats are getting nervous.  After encouraging rioting and arson for months, CNN's Don Lemon is now worrying that Antifa- and BLM-led violence is hurting Joe Biden in the polls.  Do tell! [...] I assume that the Kenosha riots will put Wisconsin in President Trump's column, and the riots here in Minnesota have, at a minimum, put the state in play.  There is another factor that hasn't gotten much attention:  Kanye West has made it onto the Minnesota ballot.

Don Lemon says, out loud:  Riots have to stop now because it's 'showing in the polling and focus groups'.  CNN's Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo finally spoke out against the rioting that continues in some U.S. cities but not for the reasons many Americans condemn the violence.  Lemon accidentally said the quiet part out loud when he lamented how ongoing leftist riots need to stop because they are hurting Democrats in the polls.  Criticizing riots not for damage to human lives and property, but for the toll they are taking on the Democratic Party, Lemon called on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to address the unrest, warning that the issue is a "blind spot" for the party.

In Kenosha, The Seeds of Civil War.  [Scroll down]  What did you morons think was going to happen?  That you could continue burning down a small city in middle America without any resistance?  People are going to defend their lives and property sooner or later, you know.  You may have caught a break in that your nemesis turned out to be a 17-year-old you can cancel as a crazed would-be school shooter, but the next incident might very well run your people up against decorated Navy SEALS or Marines or retired cops with unblemished service records.  Or just plain pillars of the community well-versed in firearms.  Particularly in a place like Wisconsin where those with hunting licenses represent a fighting force as large as the army of many a small nation.  The citizenry will eventually fight back.  And when it does, nobody ought to be surprised.  The make-believe revolution must at some point become real.  In Kenosha it became real.  And in real revolutions people get killed, because more than one side is fighting.

Kyle Rittenhouse, charged in Kenosha protest homicides, considered himself militia.  Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with shooting three people — two of them fatally — during a Kenosha protest Tuesday night [8/25/2020], considered himself a militia member trying to protect life and property, according to videos, interviews and social media posts.  Video recorded in the hours before the shooting shows Rittenhouse hanging out with older armed men who say they're protecting a car lot.  Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, also did a video interview with the Daily Caller in front of a boarded up building.  "People are getting injured and our job is to protect this business," Rittenhouse says in the clip.

Kyle Rittenhouse Was Right to Fire His Weapon.  [Scroll down]  [Video clips] Both of these pieces of footage [show] Rittenhouse was firing with the intention of self-defense, not assault.  He is always moving away, attempting to flee pursuers and never fires until his pursuers are right on top of him.  If that's the case then no death that occurred as a result of Rittenhouse firing his weapon was not his fault due to Wisconsin's "Castle Doctrine" law.  He was clearly under attack and as such, was within legal bounds when he pulled the trigger from his legal firearm.

The behavior we are witnessing from the mob is nothing new; what's different is the degree.  Tearing down statues and other public symbols of "white supremacy?  Check.  Lobbing rocks or Molotov cocktails at police?  Check.  Smashing windows and committing acts of arson in the name of Black Lives Matter?  Check.  Looting?  Check.  Add the latest offense — storming restaurants and harassing customers — and the list is complete.  All of these relics of revenge-mob mentality, supposedly carried out over police shootings of black men, date back to the Obama era.  In fact, there was one additional symptom that happily hasn't carried forward: the wholesale assassination of police officers as they sat in their cars.  If there is one difference between then and now it is the level of depraved indifference exhibited by the mob.

'Broke his jaw:' Man in his 70s attacked while trying to protect burning Kenosha mattress store.  A man was injured after attempting to protect a Kenosha mattress store before it burned down during violent protests Monday night, Aug. 24, a day after the police shooting of Jacob Blake.  The man in his 70s was hurt while trying to stop people from burning the building down, but fire leveled the building and the longtime owners are angry and emotional.

Rioters tried to burn Seattle police alive, sealed door during fire at East Precinct.  Seattle rioters used a substance suspected to be quick-dry concrete to seal shut the door to the East Precinct, the Seattle Police Department has confirmed.  At the same time, the rioter attempted to set fire to the building.  Photos reviewed by the Jason Rantz Show show the concrete mix and tools used.  Now, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is working with the Seattle Police Department on this investigation.  Rioters assaulted Seattle's East Precinct on Monday night [8/24/2020].

The mob wasn't satisfied with destroying statues, so now they're coming for your homes and families.  Statues starting coming down in June.  It's mid-August, and the "peaceful protestors" are roaming through residential neighbourhoods yelling at people in their homes.  We heard from activists and agitators that the statues had to come down, that they were symbols of an unsavory past and could not blight our town centers any longer.  In dozens of instances, the statues came down, but the protestors have not been appeased.  Protestors are no longer intent on destroying statues and public property; they are now moving on to people.  We hear so often that property damage isn't violence.  Ariel Atkins tells us that looting is merely reparations.  The New York Times' Nikole Hannah-Jones said that "Yes, it is disturbing to see property being destroyed, it's disturbing to see people taking property from stores, but these are things."  So when the fight moves from statues, government buildings, and town squares out into neighbourhoods, is that violence?  Or is it merely people making use of their right to freely assemble on residential streets?

The rioting mobsters are turning into Trump's useful idiots.  Protesters have been setting fire to yet another American city today to tell us that black lives matter.  This latest eruption is in response to a disturbing video that shows a black man being shot repeatedly in the back by police as he reaches into his car in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  The man in question is called Jacob Blake.  He is reported to be in a serious condition, but still alive in hospital this morning.  An investigation into the shooting is taking place, but the mob smashing up Kenosha doesn't care about that — it cares about rage and destruction.  We see the now familiar liturgy of so-called protest:  cars on fire; windows shattered; shops looted and tagged with 'BLM' and 'ACAB' graffiti.  Rioters even threw a brick at a police officer's head, knocking him out.  It all makes for 'viral content' online and that's sort of the point.

National Guard called out to Kenosha as protesters wreck largely black neighborhood.  The National Guard was called in to quell fiery riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin — as protesters defied a curfew to loot and destroy a mostly black business area they are supposedly trying to defend following the police shooting of a local black man.  Democratic Gov. Tony Evers summoned 125 members of the National Guard Monday after protesters set cars on fire, smashed windows and clashed with officers in riot gear Sunday after the shooting of Jacob Blake.  But that and a dusk-to-dawn curfew did not stop the city from exploding once again on Monday night — with blazes set near the scene of Blake's shooting as protesters clashed with law enforcement in riot gear.  Videos on social media showed some protesters using baseball bats to systematically smash a line of parked cars.  Another clip showed a man calmly lighting a fuse to torch an already smashed-up garbage truck as explosions went off around him.

Kenosha:  Officer Knocked Out with Brick.  Officers from the Kenosha Police Department are surrounded by rioters as bricks and large rocks are thrown.  As the officers try to move past the rioters blocking the road, one officer is struck in the head.  He falls to the ground and appears to lose consciousness.  Other officers come to his aid.  [Video clip]

Heavily armed civilians take to the streets of Kenosa to protect locals businesses as city braces for a third night of rioting, arson and looting.  Heavily armed civilians have been filmed patrolling outside businesses in Kenosha after arsonists set buildings alight, torching much of the black business district Monday [8/24/2020].  In footage taken by a local reporter, a small group of men can be seen carrying rifles and wearing combat gear as they protect local shops.  They deny they are part of a militia.  The Wisconsin city became the nation's latest flashpoint in a summer of racial unrest after police shot unarmed black man Jacob Blake, 29, in the back Sunday.

Portlanders in Need Had to Fend for Themselves, and You Won't Believe Just One Night's Crime.  You've seen the violence in Portland.  You've witnessed the chaos caught on tape.  The cops have their hands full.  So what happens, then, when people outside the chaos need police?  It turns out they have to go it alone.  As reported by The Daily Caller, on Sunday night, 35 officers had to abandon patrol duty after a riot was declared.  That led to 80 other emergency calls being put on hold.  [Video clip]  On Monday [8/24/2020], the Portland Police Bureau issued a statement detailing the night's insanity.  Twenty-three people ages 19 [to] 44 were arrested, for crimes including assaulting a public safety officer, interfering with a peace officer, and escape in the third degree.

Chief: Detroit police prevented 'Seattle zone of lawlessness'.  Officers used force to prevent protesters from setting up a "Seattle zone of lawlessness" during demonstrations that turned violent Saturday, the city's police chief said Monday [8/24/2020].  Detroit police chief James Craig made the comment while there are multiple internal investigations to determine whether any officers acted improperly during the skirmishes.  "I am not going to let any group set up a Seattle zone of lawlessness here in the city of Detroit," Craig said.  "That is non-negotiable."

Minneapolis businesses fight ban on exterior shutters owners wanting to protect their windows after riots face obstacle.  After looters crashed through his floor-to-ceiling windows and stole $1 million worth of booze in May, Chicago-Lake Liquors owner John Wolf wanted to protect himself from a repeat occurrence.  Like property owners throughout the world, he wanted to install security shutters on the outside of his building.  The investment would not only prevent rioters from entering his store, it would protect his windows — which cost $50,000 to replace.  But Wolf ran into a big obstacle:  The city of Minneapolis has barred security shutters on building exteriors since 2004.

BLM Burns Down Kenosha — A City of 100,000 — With Police and National Guard Deployed.  The only option tonight for Police and National Guard was to use deadly force — or just let the rioters have their way until they exhausted themselves.  They chose the latter.  The Kenosha Police Department has only 185 officers.  The Sheriff's Office is significantly larger, but even if it is twice as large, that is still only in the neighborhood of 600 or so officers.  The National Guard deployment was only of 125 members, and the task they were publicly given by Gov. Evers was to provide security for fire and emergency personnel.  The public announcement did not seem to include any support for law enforcement agencies dealing with the riots.

Denver's Turn In The Riot Barrel.  Saturday night [8/22/2020], downtown Denver got to experience the same joy that antifa and #BlackLivesMatter has brought to places like Minneapolis, Portland and Seattle.  [Video clips]  These riots aren't about police brutality, they're about a hard-left, anti-police activism that's rejected by the overwhelming majority of American citizens.  In Austin, state troopers and APD quickly clamped down on this stupidity before the idiots could do much damage.  Other cities should follow their lead[.]

Finally, They're Honest About It:  BLM 'Protester' Charged With Terrorist Activity in Florida.  One of the reasons that Portland and Seattle have so gotten out of hand is that the local Democrats running the show aren't willing to hold the radical leftist rioters there fully accountable for their actions.  While they have arrested some, many have caused trouble repeatedly without consequence as the rioters have tried to burn down police buildings and attacked dozens of police and other citizens.  But the actions are clearly terrorist activity — violence and intimidation for a political purpose.  Can there be a more accurate description?  There's been a lot of terrorist activity going on in Portland that hasn't been charged as such.  But just to show you the difference in how BLM/Antifa crimes are treated, there has been a BLM 'protester' charged with terrorist activity in Florida.

Over 42 Rioters Arrested in Detroit Over Weekend.  A Black Lives Matter riot was ultimately broken up by Detroit police on Sunday, with over 40 rioters arrested, according to USA Today.  The incident was started by a Detroit-area Black Lives Matter-affiliated group called "Detroit Will Breathe," which has been causing trouble in the area ever since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.  One of the leading organizers of Detroit Will Breathe, a far-left radical named Tristan Taylor, claimed without evidence that police attacked "peaceful protesters."  The riot was broken up shortly after midnight on Sunday, after multiple rioters began blocking traffic on major downtown roads.  The initial protest started with about 400, before eventually dwindling down to about 100 who stayed to block the roads.

Portland BLM Thug Who Kicked Innocent Man in the Face Arrested, Charged With 3 Felonies.  The Black Lives Matter rioter who was caught on-camera kicking a truck driver in the face in a vicious, unprovoked attack last weekend in Portland, has been arrested on multiple felony charges.  Marquise Lee Love, 25, "turned himself in Friday morning after detectives and the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office coordinated with his attorney," Fox 12 reported.  The Black Lives Matter agitator was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of "second-degree assault, coercion, and riot," according to Portland Police.  His bail was set at $260,000.

Why the Violence Would Increase Under Biden.  It's easy to see why Joe Biden omitted even a glancing reference in his presidential nomination acceptance speech to the violence that's overwhelming so many of our cities.  He couldn't figure out how to do it without exposing his party's egregious policies in those cities.  From Portland, Oregon, where the bloody uprisings have been going on for 80 days with no end in sight, to New York City — once the envy of the world, turned into a public garbage dump and latrine for the drug-addicted homeless and child molesters, its citizenry fleeing in droves — Democratic officials have proven to be a collection of virtue-signaling prima donnas lost between their sympathies for the demonstrators (including violent ones with whom some seem to identify) and an absolute cluelessness about what to do about the escalating situation.  Whatever they do, they dare not offend the sainted demonstrators by calling for law enforcement lest they (Democratic mayors, governors, attorneys general, and so forth) be accused of racism — a fool's game if there ever were one, since everybody is, eventually, declared a racist.  That's how it rolls in today's America.  Exceptions are, of course, the mayors of Seattle and Chicago who — with mind-bending hypocrisy — suddenly screamed for the cops when their own homes were under assault, something they never did for the benighted people of their cities, especially the poor they pretend to support.  In the case of Chicago, we have been watching the bodies pile up for years, turning the city into a virtual killing field for black people.  Meanwhile, those working stiffs known as the police, under constant assault by the moral narcissists of the left, are retiring across the country at a record rate — who could blame them — leaving cities undefended while Antifa and Black Lives Matter leadership continue their pursuit of revolution.

Chicago BLM Militant Issues Threat:  "We Have Demands and They Need to Be Met... You Can Listen to Us Or Get Ran Over".  A Black Lives Matter militant in Chicago this week issued what many have interpreted as a terroristic threat.  Taylor Norwood this week unleashed on Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot during a press conference for allowing the police to arrest her 'innocent friends' who were just exercising their Fist Amendment right.  Norwood accused Lightfoot of protecting the whites in North Chicago from blacks in Southside Chicago by blocking off exits to the north following back-to-back weekends of BLM terrorists looting Magnificent Mile.

Antifa And Black Lives Matter Intelligence Report.  Just who is Antifa?  The American manifestation of the "Black Bloc" isn't new.  Antifa existed before now in Europe, but appears to have morphed into a more ad hoc conglomeration of people who have certain ideologies in common, some of whom appear to have been overseas. [...] There is indeed indication that some of these insurgents may have been imported with help from Obama administration officials (See also here and here; additionally, 13 Biden staffers have donated to organizations that fund the riots, so this may carry forward to a future administration).  It has a flat organizational structure, but it is obviously getting funding for bail, legal support and logistics in Portland and Seattle (and possibly elsewhere).  Their tactics have evolved and increased in sophistication as their encounters with law enforcement have increased. [...] The mob tactics they have employed (along with BLM) include arson, looting, attacks on vehicles, busting windows, beatings of innocent people in the street, trashing businesses, and destruction of structures not associated in any way to politics.  Of late, Black Bloc has taken to neighborhoods in Portland.  They seek an end to the American system, and in fact an end to Western culture in general.  They are clearly Marxists and anarchists.

A swarm of 'armed anarchists' wielding axes and guns descends on Denver Police HQ.  Dozens of armed 'anarchists' descended on the Denver Police Headquarters late Saturday [8/22/2020] and damaged buildings, set fires and injured an officer, city officials said Sunday.  The group, consisting of between 50 to 75 demonstrators, were said to be wielding a varying degree of weapons — from axes to guns — during the incident yesterday evening.

Yes, This Is a Revolution.  [Scroll down]  As of this writing, Portland, Oregon, has endured more than two months straight of anarchist violence directed at federal buildings and employees.  In other cities — New York, Los Angeles, Richmond, Omaha, and Austin, to name a few — mob violence continues to erupt regularly, always connected to cries for justice and sometimes resulting in death.  Accelerating the general dissolution, police forces have been successfully hobbled in response to the killing of George Floyd, and the resulting spike in murder and violent crime shows no sign of abating.  All the while, armchair lynch mobs have continued to claim the scalps of those who veer from or merely stumble on the path to social-justice enlightenment.  It is the full-time job of any American with a public presence to bow down before the identity cult. [...] 62 percent of all Americans, according to a poll by the CATO Institute, now say they're afraid to voice their political views lest they be punished professionally.

Proud Boys VS ANTIFA Yesterday In An Epic Battle For A Once Great City.  It looks like some Americans have had it and figured, since the mayor and city council won't do anything, everyday citizens will have to.  [Video clip]

More details and arrests in the case of the hat-stealing Biden women.  [Scroll down]  Taylor's statement about these two harpies confirmed another suspicion of mine:  That these two women exemplify the Democrat trend of having women as the frontline soldiers.  They are not forced into the frontline.  Instead, the Democrat establishment, starting in public schools and continuing into colleges and universities, creates angry young white women who feel victimized by society.  At the same time, they feel guilty about their alleged white privilege.  This combination of anger and guilt plays out in remarkable viciousness.  These women are also willing to engage in violence because, despite their abandonment of traditional codes of femininity, they expect men to continue to respect the cultural prohibition against striking women.  This double standard appears in the video when one of the women strikes Taylor, and he doesn't retaliate.

In the Soup!  [Scroll down]  If you're black, it's even worse.  The person shooting you does so from a refuge of protection provided by the same political machine that pumps lead infused water into your tenement, ensures that you never have any positive role models like Justice Clarence Thomas, Economist Thomas Sowell or National Security Advisor Condolezza Rice, but continually fall back on drug dealers, rappers and sports figures to show your young men the way to prosperity.  The gun you are disallowed from owning to protect yourself in the cities with the highest murder rates in the world are pumped into the hands for juvenile delinquents in gangs by those who campaign all day long on "gun control."  Those of you who are trying to sleep at night in order to get up, go to work and pay for all of the largesse funneled out to those who hold you in contempt, are now awakened by Antifa/BLM/Revcom soldiers just to let you know that they will show up in the middle of the night to harass you if you do not enthusiastically obey their outlandish demands on a daily basis.

A Navy Seal Instructs Americans on How to Deal With a Violent Mob.  The mob is out there, and I don't mean on Twitter.  Across the nation, violent crowds are setting fires, blocking traffic, hospitalizing residents, and — in some cases — shooting drivers.  So what should you do if you find yourself the fixation of an unruly horde?  On Tucker Carlson Tonight Friday [8/21/2020], author and former Navy SEAL Jack Carr laid out instructions.  [Video clip]

Vehicle -"Protest" Encounters:  Politics, Legal Jeopardy, Defense.  In the seeming never-ending riots portrayed as "peaceful protests" by the Progressive left, including most of the Media, there are an increasing number of drivers/passengers involved in vehicle encounters with agitators/protestors.  There are numerous responses on Internet forums about how to handle a situation where a person or persons in a vehicle encounter, often unexpectedly, agitators/protestors who are aggressively blocking a public right of way.  Many of these responses are very dangerous.  It seems to be precisely what is desired by the Progressive left, such as Antifa and BLM, their organizers, handlers, and political theorists.  This article explains some of the dynamics observed from the reporting of these events, and a framework of how to respond with the least risk to the driver/passenger(s) involved.  The design of many of these events is to deliberately block public right-of-ways, to inconvenience large numbers of the public, and to show the public the participants can break the law with impunity.  Part of the design is to trap drivers/passengers and provoke a violent response to further the Antifa/BLM agenda.  In nearly all of these events, the local government, which may include the local prosecutor, mayor, and or city council, are complicit, sympathetic, or compromised on the side of those organizing the event and the violence.

Portland riots intensify; balloons with feces thrown at cop cars.  Heeding the advice of critics, Portland police say they repeatedly tried to deescalate with protesters Friday night.  It didn't work.  As many as 200 demonstrators rampaged near a police station in the Oregon city, pelting a protective line of unoccupied police vehicles with golf balls, softball-sized rocks, metal railroad spikes, paint-filled plastic eggs and balloons filled with feces.  A torn-up street sign was also used to smash cars, with tires slashed and windows broken, police said.

Leftists Storm Suburbs, Shine Lights Into Homes While Screaming: 'Out Of Your House, Into The Streets!'  Hundreds of far-left activists stormed a residential neighborhood in Portland, Oregon on Friday night as they shined lights into people's home and screamed, "out of your house, into the streets!"  Videographer BG On the Scene captured numerous videos of the night's action and identified those who were marching as Black Lives Matter protesters.  Journalist Andy Ngo identified them as being part of antifa.  The far-left activists wore black and carried shields, at least one of which could briefly be seen with a hammer and sickle symbol on it.  "Out of your house, into the streets!" the activists screamed as they marched through the residential neighborhood.  They repeated the chant countless times throughout the area.

Video of all the assaults and robberies by BLM last Sunday in Portland and it's worse than you thought.  This is complete footage shot from myself of the violent events that took place on the night of 8/16/20 in Downtown Portland.  This footage is for all media and law enforcement to observe.  [Video clip]

Portland riot:  Vandalism, naked people, poop balloons and nine arrests.  Another riot was declared in Portland last night.  I think that makes four this week.  Last night the focus was the north precinct and Antifa vandalized a police car.  While they were there they also vandalized a van for the Boys & Girls Club which is not part of the police bureau.  [Numerous video clips]  Police have been wasting their time (and the city's money) with these idiots every night for months.  They've vandalized city property and injured officers and they are forming shield walls to resist orders to disperse.  And yet, the moment someone gets pushed they are outraged.

Two Women were filmed harassing a mother and her child for wearing MAGA hats.  Just outside the DNC convention, two brazen women were filmed harassing a mother and her child for wearing MAGA hats.  Tearing up signs and one woman then stole the MAGA hat off the 7-year-old child, who's name is Riley.  [Video clip]

Update:
Woman who stole 7-yr-old boy's MAGA hat and terrorized him is charged cuffed and arrested.  One of the women allegedly seen in a video berating a boy and stealing his MAGA hat in Delaware was arrested by police in Wilmington.  Olivia Winslow was arrested by Wilmington Police on Friday after the 21-year-old was allegedly identified in a video that's gone viral showing her and another woman involved in the incident with a 7-year-old boy on the last night of the virtual Democratic National Convention this week.

These Videos And Images Foretell The Future Of America.  We are going to begin a little differently with this article and provide the first video in question at the beginning, offering other related incidents after the video, all showing that America is not going to go back to normal after the November presidential election, and that "normal" no longer exists.  As an FYI, while tempers are hot and everyone is trying to talk over each other at some point or another, there is no outright violence, except an after-scene shot of a woman that according to the people in the video, exited her car to attack the Trump supporters, and managed to get herself either maced or pepper-sprayed.  [Video clip] [...] It is almost as if they simply cannot stand that anyone that isn't a Democrat could gather and present a message, and they must attempt to destroy the entire event.  After the years of reporting on Antifa, it truly isn't a surprise to see people supportive of them, or even members of one the many Antifa groups, acting out like children having a temper tantrum because someone is espousing ideology that they do not like.

Democratic Convention Ignores the Elephant in the Virtual Room:  Big-City Violence.  As I keep telling you, when you hear politicians talking, pay attention to what isn't said.  Train your eye to see the negative space between the dancers, because that, too, is often the story.  Urban violence threatens the peace of targeted Democratic suburban voters, like those soccer moms who've just installed police scanner apps on their cellphones.  Trump is taking advantage of this, but he didn't create it.  What America is witnessing in cities like Portland, Seattle, Chicago and New York is a clash between the hard left and the liberal Democratic mayors who lead those cities.  And this Democratic infomercial is all about the swing vote, if there is such a thing, in battleground states, like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.  Naturally, Democrats accentuate the positive.  Yet as the DNC infomercial makes plain, this new left Democratic Party of 2020 sees only two types:  The Oppressed and The Oppressors, a formula that invariably leads to rising conflict and anger that can't be covered over with virtual kindness and virtual empathy.

'We, the People' Have a Duty to Stop the Violence.  We already have the power in our hands to throw out governments that have not cared enough about the people to act effectively against violence.  We already know enough not to accept as normal this unending violence.  We will say the names of those whose lives were ended and whose dreams were destroyed by those who accept no responsibility for their actions.  And we will use our power to remove governments that accept no responsibility for delivering positive results, who demand loyalty on the basis of identity alone, and who never deliver even the most elementary responsibility of those who are empowered only to serve the public — protecting the lives and property of the citizens.  Public servants who are loyal to the government at the people's expense have proven their incompetence and disloyalty.  It is our sacred duty to remove power from their hands by the means we the people have put at our own disposal.

Women Steal Child's MAGA Hat, Tear Up Trump Posters Near DNC Event.  An incident captured on video appeared to show two women who were protesting President Donald Trump on Thursday taking a "Make America Great Again" hat from a child and tearing up pro-Trump posters.  The incident continued to escalate throughout the video as the women and the child's mother shouted back and forth and threatened each other with physical injury.  "They attacked my son.  I have it on video," the boy's mother can be heard telling a man at one point during the video.

'Listen to him cry': Women attack a mom and 7-yr-old Trump supporters, steal his MAGA hat.  Two women appeared to steal a seven-year-old boy's MAGA hat and yell obscenities at him and his mother after tearing up signs supporting President Donald Trump.  In a video of the incident, the unidentified mother captures the two women accosting her and, allegedly, her son as they destroy their homemade signs and take the boy's hat.  The video carries a "Students for Trump" label and was tweeted by Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA, who wrote in a Twitter post accompanying the footage that the incident occurred outside the Democratic National Convention, which is being held in Milwaukee, though most 'attendees' are appearing only virtually.

ANTIFA and BLM Rioters Try to Storm the ICE Building in Portland.  It's starting to look like a war-zone in Portland... wait it already was.  Once again rioters have nothing else to do besides terrorize the city of Portland in the name of Social Justice.  This time the rioters assembled outside the ICE building where there were met by federal agents.  [Video clip]

Reclaiming Our Culture from the Left.  Everyone knows it: the death of George Floyd was just a pretext.  The rioters who continue every night to wreak havoc in Portland, and who are poised to engage in new orgies of destruction all over the country don't know much and care less about Floyd.  They're quite open about engaging in a "revolution" with the goal of destroying the existing order and replacing it with an authoritarian Marxist regime.  But what we are seeing today is not new.  Its seeds were planted decades ago.  Now the question before us, if we want to preserve the United States as a free society, is what we must do to counter this violent, hate-filled movement.  There will be no easy fix.

Portland protester with long rap sheet who is on the run from cops.  A Black Lives Matter protester on the run from cops after being 'positively identified' as the man who kicked a truck driver in the face in Portland on Sunday is begging for cash.  Police are searching for Marquise 'Keese' Love, 25, after he fled the scene of a brutal attack on Adam Haner, who was knocked unconscious and suffered two black eyes in the vicious beating.  Haner was identified as the victim in a GoFundMe campaign, which claimed he was trying to defend a transgender woman from being robbed before he was set upon by protesters.  Since fleeing the scene, Love has been posting messages on Snapchat, according to The Sun.

Accused Portland attacker Marquise Love has lengthy rap sheet.  The attacker being sought by Portland authorities for allegedly knocking a man out cold during a chaotic demonstration over the weekend has a lengthy criminal record that includes arrests for domestic assault and criminal trespass.  Marquise Love, 25, has been arrested in Washington County, Ore., which borders Portland to the west, seven times since 2012, according to records provided to Fox News.  In 2017, he was arrested for domestic assault and domestic harassment.  He wasn't prosecuted, The New York Post reported, but a judge signed a protective order against him.  His rap sheet also includes two separate arrests in 2016 for providing false information in connection with the transfer of a firearm, and domestic assault and criminal trespass.  In 2015, Love was arrested for interfering with public transportation.

When are Local and State Governments Illegitimate?  This descent into hell is enabled by so-called progressive Democrats in the aforesaid cities and Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, and wherever next.  The progressives have names:  Ted Wheeler, Jenny Durkan, and Jacob Frey — all mayors — along with numerous council members.  And governors, Kate Brown, Jay Inslee, and Tim Walz.  Add Lori Lightfoot, J.B. Pritzker, Bill de Blasio, and Andrew Cuomo to the roster.  All — all — have taken oaths of office to uphold the law and attend to the public safety.  They are glaringly derelict in their duties.  These elected leaders aren't simply craven, they're complicit in the violence and destruction that bedevils their cities.  They see the mobs in the streets.  They witness the destruction.  They are apprised of the violence.  They know innocents are being harmed.  They know citizens cower behind locked doors. [...] Yet they permit the mayhem.  They let the mobs roam.  They fiddle as their cities burn.  These elected leaders are, in fact, aiding and abetting insurrections.

Another riot is declared in Portland on 83rd night of trouble.  Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building.  The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows.  One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.'  Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.  Video taken Tuesday night shows protesters calling for 'no cops, no prisons, total abolition'.

Chicago PD arrests woman who live-streamed herself looting stores.  On a couple of occasions, we have lamented the lack of arrests being made following the mass looting and destruction taking place when "peaceful protests" transform into riots after dark in several American cities.  This is particularly true in Chicago, where even Mayor Lori Lightfoot has complained that the rioters who destroyed and emptied the Miracle Mile seemed to have "no fear of consequences" for their actions.  Well, perhaps there is a light at the end of this particular tunnel.  The Chicago PD has managed to arrest one of the looters from the Miracle Mile carnage on Monday, August 10.  Of course, in the case of Taeshia Rochon, perhaps they didn't have to call in their top detectives to crack the case.  Rochon fired up her camera and live-streamed herself robbing two stores on Facebook.  Hang on for the video because it struck me as quite educational.  [Video clip]

Manhunt underway for attacker in Portland truck assault: police.  Portland police on Tuesday identified a suspect in Sunday night's attack on a truck driver who was seen on video being pulled from the vehicle and violently beaten.  The Portland Police Bureau is on the hunt for Marquise Love, who also goes by the name "Keese Love," for his alleged involvement in the vicious assault that was caught on video and circulated on social media.  Officials said in a press release they have made several attempts to find 25-year-old Love, but have so far been unsuccessful.  They have said they have probable cause for his arrest.

More than 200 charged with federal crimes, 1,000 arrested in Operation Legend, AG Barr announces.  At least 207 people have been charged with a federal crime, and more than 1,000 arrests have been made in major metropolitan cities since the Department of Justice launched Operation Legend in July, U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced on Wednesday [8/19/2020].  Nearly 400 firearms have been seized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.  Barr launched Operation Legend on July 8 as "a sustained, systematic and coordinated law enforcement initiative in which federal law enforcement agencies work in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight violent crime," the DOJ said in a release. [...] The latest figures on charges and arrests do not include Indianapolis, whose operation was first announced last Friday.  The arrests of more than 1,000 people include those charged in state and local courts.

Man Pulled Gun On Group Not Wearing Masks:  Police.  A Bourbonnais man has been arrested on accusations he threatened to shoot three people in a Jewel-Osco parking lot Tuesday night for not wearing masks inside the store.  According to the Daily Journal, 60-year-old Marc L. Bourdreau was in a checkout line inside the store in the 600 block of Main Street NW while three people were behind him, not wearing masks, Bourbonnais Deputy Police Chief Dave Anderson said.  Bourdreau is accused of pulling a handgun on them in the store's parking lot after he waited for them to come outside, and asked them, "How would you like to get shot in the head?"Anderson said, according to the Daily Journal.  Anderson told the Daily Journal that Bourdreau had a concealed carry permit and valid FOID card.  Bourdreau was stopped by officers while trying to drive from the parking lot.  He faces aggravated assault and unlawful use of a weapon charges stemming from the accusations.

Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York:  No End Of Violence In Sight For These Liberal Cities.  Late Sunday [8/16/2020], downtown Portland, Oregon was the scene of a vicious attack.  A man driving a pickup truck was reportedly chased by a mob, forcing him to crash his vehicle.  He was then removed from the truck and violently beaten.  Multiple videos have emerged from the scene showing the attack.  "The driver could be seen getting punched, kicked and ordered not to leave in the middle of a city street.  The man in the video, at one point, appeared dazed after the initial assault, but suffered the worst blow when he absorbed a roundhouse kick to the side of the head," reported Fox News.  This was all done in front of the female passenger.  Sunday marked Portland's 80th consecutive night of protests, during which "more than 60 emergency calls to police went unheeded overnight... as officers were preoccupied with hundreds of demonstrators downtown and were pelted by rocks," reported Fox News.  Much of the evening was police defending their own lives while being attacked and assaulted by rioters.  Two officers were hospitalized and a photo shared by the police bureau shows "a 9.5-pound rock that was thrown by a person posing as 'press' as the officer 'prepared to ride away on a truck.'  Several arrests were made."

Seattle Residents Voting for Trump After Democrats Refuse To Stop Rioting.  The state of Washington isn't in play in any substantive way this election season, which makes it an odd place to pay attention to voter sentiment. [...] Neither of Washington's Senate seats are up for being voted on this year.  Only one of the state's congressional districts — Washington's 8th, a suburban Seattle district flipped by the Democrats in the 2018 midterms — is remotely competitive.  However, while all of America will have been changed in some way by the events of 2020, the state of Washington in general — and Seattle in particular — will look the most different, particularly politically.  It's seen some of the most radical of the post-George Floyd foment, particularly in the lawless CHAZ/CHOP "autonomous zone" and in a series of mostly unpoliced demonstrations-cum-riots that followed.

Breaking: 4Chan Identifies One of the Portland Rioters Who Attempted to Kill Driver as 'Keese Love'.  The anonymous message board 4Chan has once again proven to be one of the nations best intelligence services, as they have seemingly identified the man who dealt the final kick to a man who was savagely beaten by rioters in Portland on Sunday evening.  The rioters appeared to be attempting to murder the man after beating a white woman who may or may not have been with him.

7 Big Stories Corporate Media Is Ignoring Because The Truth Might Help Trump.  [#7] Riots?  What Riots?  The media also finds itself struggling to cover the riots occurring throughout our country.  The "mostly peaceful protests" spin remains strong because any acknowledgment of the violence confirms Trump's criticism of Democratic-run cities and his decision to use federal law enforcement officials to protect federal property.  So the press bypasses or shades these major stories.  At any other time and under any other president, the media would have descended on the Portland federal courthouse to report the insurrection taking place.  Reporters would have infiltrated the autonomous zone and covered the rampant crime and violence occurring.  Profiles of the small business owners whose livelihoods were destroyed by the riots would run.

Innocent Protester? Or, Trained Assault Team Member?  [Scroll down]  The masses that gather are being trained to commit assault on those opposing them, inflicting crippling pain and damage.  I had seen rioters on the news over the last several weeks, clutching skateboards.  From my knowledge of urban youth, I knew that skateboard use wasn't all that common.  So, why were so many holding them?  [#1] Use as a shield if physically challenged.  [#2] Wielding it as a weapon against police.  Unlike other weapons (such as the common sock of bike locks), the skateboard can argued to be an innocent means of transportation, not an intentional weapon.  Other seemingly innocent devices have been deployed:
  •   Leaf blowers — used to re-direct tear gas/smoke back at the police
  •   Umbrellas (I'd seen this, and thought it quite odd to be carrying them to a riot).  [Umbrellas are often used to block the view of surveillance cameras. -Ed.]  In a pinch, the bumbershoots can also be used to jab agressively.
  •   Note the 'soccer moms' — all wearing bike helmets.  Seemingly without nefarious use — but, could easily be taken off, swung by the straps, and used to batter opponents.  That polymer material is meant to stand up to a lot of abuse.
  •   Flags on poles — not only a great optic (hey, we're just patriotic Americans!), but also leaves them with wooden poles to use as a weapon.
  •   Lasers — depending on the type of light (green are quite harmful to eyes), can blind.  They are deliberately using these in coordinated attacks on the police.  This was planned — most people use the red lasers for innocent purposes.
  •   The usual lighters, gasoline/bottle/wick combos, fireworks, IEDs, metal batons, bricks, etc.
Understand, most people, even on the Left, don't actively participate in these violent actions.  But they DO spread the lie that these are peaceful protesters.  They are allies of the Left.

Stop America's Endless Kristallnacht Before It Destroys Our Country.  [Scroll down]  America has been in its own version of Crystal Night for many months now, from broken windows to looting to destruction of myriad stores and other places of business, police stations, and government edifices, not to mention considerable physical harm to persons.  Although not yet of Nazi (i.e., National Socialist) proportions, it's pretty bad and doesn't seem to be getting better.  For the most part, nothing is being done about it, especially on the state and municipal levels.  As in Nazi Germany, it's unchecked.  Furthermore, the U.S. populace, as it did in 1930s Germany, is becoming inured to the violence.  A video from Aug. 14 of remarkably passive Seattle citizens looking on as Antifa wreaks havoc to their city says it all.  (It's worth watching also for the confident bravura of the Antifa thugs and, it goes without saying, the absence of police.)  In other recent news reminiscent of Kristallnacht, the Ronald McDonald House in Chicago, where parents of hospitalized children stay, had its door smashed and windows broken by looters (if that's what they were) on Aug. 9, preventing a 2-year old with stage four cancer from leaving for his birthday.  It's hard to know how anyone would want to live in Chicago anymore.  Of course, these events and many others like them are barely being covered by our mainstream media.  They don't fit their narrative.  Omertà must rule before the election.

Portland:  Attempted Murder Of Portland Man Kicked In The Head By ANTIFA Thug, Left Comatose.  A disgusting incident in Portland last night when a couple driving a pickup truck confronted some individuals robbing a man.  The mob turned on them, beating the woman, chasing her away.  When the man sped off, he crashed and the mob chased him down.  This individual came running from behind and kicked the unsuspecting man full force in the head.  [Video clip]

Store windows smashed in Brooklyn during march in support of Stone Mountain protests.  Violence broke out in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Saturday (August 15) as dozens marched in supports of the Stone Mountain protests in Georgia.  Footage shows masked individuals attacking an Apple store and a Whole Foods.  The filmer told: "Antifascists marched through Williamsburg, Brooklyn for two hours in solidarity with Stone Mountain protests in Georgia.  "Windows were broken and walls tagged with messages such as 'Murder Bezos.'"  [Video clip]

Mass brawl breaks out between far-right and anti-fascist groups in Stone Mountain.  Far-right groups clashed with anti-fascists at Stone Mountain in the US state of Georgia on Saturday (August 15th).  Various right-wing groups were planning to converge at the Confederate monument in Stone Mountain Park but when they found the park closed, took to the streets.  Anti-fascists had also gathered there and a large brawl broke out between the opposing sides.  [Video clip]

Video Journalist Gets Assaulted By ANTIFA, Hit With Baseball Bat, Spit On In Portland.  [Video clip]

Antifa Is Evil.  Portland is a dead city, a nightmarish dystopia ruled by criminals associated with Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  (Is there still a distinction between those groups?  They seem effectively to have merged.)  We are all indebted to Andy Ngo for documenting the depths to which Portland has descended.  Here, Antifa/BLM criminals viciously assault a man who was driving a truck, finally kicking him in the head, knocking him unconscious and leaving him for dead.  [Video clips]

'Antifa' protesters trash Williamsburg Whole Foods, Apple over weekend.  Dozens of protesters, including suspected members of the anti-fascist group Antifa, rampaged through Williamsburg over the weekend, trashing several national chain stores and spraying anti-police graffiti, according to police and sources.  The rowdy mob marched through the Brooklyn neighborhood late Saturday [8/15/2020], with police first receiving a 911 call at 8:20 p.m. about vandalism at an Apple Store on Bedford Avenue, where they found broken windows and the letters "FTP" — typically meaning "[...]" in this context — spray-painted on the wall, cops said.  The protesters, who also targeted a Whole Foods store in the neighborhood, tagged one building with the message "Murder Bezos," according to reports.

Scenes From The Destruction of New York City.  The New York City riots were just a blip in the largest series of coordinated antifa/#BlackLivesMatter riots sweeping the country then, but this video indicates that the looting and destruction in de Blasio's New York City was far more more extensive than the media let on.  [Video clip]  I had a friend who recently visited NYC, and he says from the Holland Tunnel to the Williamsburg Bridge through lower Manhattan almost everything was still boarded up and covered with graffiti, with lots of trash on the sidewalk.  "Looked like a scene from an early Scorsese movie." Is it any wonder that people are fleeing the city in droves?

LAPD Release Footage Of Mostly NOT Peaceful Protesters.  [Video clip]

Antifa Goes To Sturgis!  Sadly, as you probably might have guessed, it was only a handful of Antifa protesters, and they relied upon a ring of Sturgis Police officers to keep them safe from the crown which would have likely "tarred and feathered" them — hey, it's all black — had they had the chance.  That is right up to the point where the Antifa leader decided he wanted to incite the crowd, so the Sturgis Police took him down.  [Video clip]  This seems to be the only incident that took place, and the Police were well prepared to not let things get out of hand.  As you can see it looks like only 5-6 Antifa-clad protesters were involved — and about 10,000 motorcycle enthusiasts.

More than 60 Portland 911 calls go unanswered overnight as police respond to 'violent, tumultuous' riot.  A riot was declared around midnight Sunday in Portland as protesters flocked to a law enforcement builing, continuing a nightly ritual in Oregon's biggest city.  Over 60 calls to Portland police went unheeded overnight as officers were deployed to quell the protests where officers used crowd control munitions to disperse demonstrators outside the Penumbra Kelly building.  Protesters threw 'softball-size' rocks, glass bottles, and pointed green lasers at officers' eyes, the police department reported on Twitter, documenting the unrest that has continued for 80 consecutive nights following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

'Social Justice' Is Extortion.  The Democrat Party pretense that mostly there are only "peaceful protesters" is a blatant lie, particularly when elected Democrat officials encourage the looting and arson and attacks on police.  The claim that rioting is all about police reform and justice for African Americans no longer has any credibility.  The truth is that there is no light between Democrats and rioters, the antifa rioters serving as the militia of the Democrat Party.  The Democrat "defund the police" movement, which has hobbled the police in many Democrat-run cities, does not enhance "black lives," which are threatened by a high rate of black-on-black crime, particularly shootings and murders, but also theft, robbery, assault, and rape.

How Race Politics Burns Out.  [Scroll down]  The kind of racialized violence now taking place reflects what historian Fred Siegel called "the riot ideology", which has been deleterious to the progress of African Americans.  The rioting in the 1960s weakened urban economies and led to devastating losses for minority property owners and businesses.  Even today many areas burned down in the 1960s in Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit have never recovered.  Indeed despite massive expenditures to redress huge past inequities, high-poverty areas in cities have grown steadily, doubling in population between 1980 and 2018.  Looting and mayhem, long-term, don't work.  After the 1992 riots, there were pledges of massive corporate and government support for south Los Angeles.  Now, almost three decades later, the area, site of two of the worst riots in American history, has experienced a growing gap with the rest of the county in terms of homeownership, income and educational attainment.  The more recent disorders also are unlikely to spark much long-term inner-city investment.

When 'Woke Muscles' Meet Men Who Fight.  The one Bronx neighborhood, which is residential but has many small businesses on the main thoroughfare, did not suffer the riots, looting, arson, and violence that have been prevalent in cities and towns across America.  When Antifa came for it, the Italians, Irish, and Albanians, armed with pistols, rifles, baseball bats, swords, and knives, merged onto the main thoroughfare, blocking it and other tertiary streets.  Faced with armed resistance, Antifa's forces were compelled to accept who and what they are, a band of spoiled white college kids who like to break things, play dress-up, and pretend they are a force to be reckoned with.  Threatening to "cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war," they turned and fast-walked away in different directions.  They most likely decided that it would no longer be fun if they were required to pay a price in blood for their pernicious urgings.  I am told they never returned.

Riots should re-elect Trump.  Bill Ayers turned 75 the day after Christmas.  This summer, he saw his decades-long dream come true.  No, not the election of his protegee Obama (whose memoir Ayers "edited" — i.e., wrote). [...] This summer, Ayers got his wish for a race war.  The death of George Floyd provided the excuse to roll out the nightly riots, which used peaceful protests in the daylight to soften the PR.  But the press in 2020 is not what it was in 1970 when Ayers first began blowing things up.  Back then, most journalists were men who served in World War II or later.  Today's press is mixed sexes with mixed up ideas about America.  Veterans are newsroom oddities now.  Degrees from Marxist universities — such as the one that employs Ayers — make journalists easy targets for communist propaganda.  And so for 2 months, rioters had a jolly good time trashing the cities and blinding officers with lasers.

Chaos erupts in Portland on the 79th night of violence after police declare an unlawful assembly and clash with BLM protesters.  Chaos erupted in Portland for a 79th consecutive night on Friday after police declared an unlawful assembly during a peaceful demonstration and stormed a protester shield line, beating people with batons.  About 300 protesters had gathered in the city's Peninsula Park around 9 pm for a peaceful march across North Portland that was expected to end at the Police Association building on N Lombard Street.  But even before demonstrators could begin heading toward their destination, cops — changing tactics from the previous nights — cut off access to the streets leading to the police union headquarters.

Minneapolis Tells Residents With Riot-Wrecked Buildings They Can't Clean Up Until They've Paid Their 2020 Property Taxes in Full.  The city of Minneapolis suffered around 1,500 heavily damaged buildings, with 150 set fire to and dozens burned to the ground.  The city suffered half of a billion dollars in estimated damages from the riots following the police murder of George Floyd.  Defenders of government's necessity argue that the protection of life and property is allegedly one of the goods government uniquely provides and for which we pay taxes, yet Minneapolis demonstrably did a terrible job on this task.  But whether the government delivers on what it promises, it will always be diligent in insisting we pay for those promises.  Today the Minneapolis Star Tribune takes a long look at one reason why the aftermath of rampant destruction, as yet untended to, continues to haunt the city.  As social scientists understand, such riot damage can have dire effects on development and poverty in an area for decades down the line.

Feds Stepping in to Prosecute Portland Rioters Charged with Crimes as Local DA Stands Down.  The Multnomah County District Attorney announced earlier this week that dozens of people arrested over almost three months of rioting in Portland, Oregon, will not be prosecuted, but as local officials stand down, federal prosecutors are taking on cases.  D.A. Mike Schmidt said his office would not prosecute rioters arrested unless the charges against them included property damage, theft or the use or threat of force against another person.

Oregon State Police Leave Portland After Woke Prosecutor Refuses to Charge Rioters.  For weeks, the Marxists who run Portland complained about the outsized presence of federal agents and officers sent to protect the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse.  It was an invasion ordered by President Donald Trump, you see. [...] That's nonsense, of course, but to sane people, little of what emanates from Portland these days makes much sense.  In any event, in response to the constant harping and whining from people like Mayor Ted Wheeler and Gov. Kate Brown, the Trump administration cut a deal to gradually redeploy federal protective service officers and other DHS agents out of the courthouse and out of Portland, replacing them with local and Oregon State Police.  Well, no sooner than that happened, the Antifa thugs that have been allowed to run wild through Portland streets re-focused their attention back on local cops — and State Patrol officers — as nightly riots continued.  Now, according to The Daily Wire, the Oregon State Police has had enough of the Left-wing lunacy in Portland after the Marxist district attorney announced he wouldn't be prosecuting anyone for the 'peaceful' act of violent rioting.

Oregon State Police Pull Out of Portland — Local DA's Refusal To Prosecute Behind The Move?  Return of Feds At Hand?  Very interesting development earlier today [8/14/2020], as the Oregon State Police announced they were leaving Portland. [...] Local reporting says that the move is a result of the announcement by Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt's that his office does not intend to prosecute most of those arrested. [...] The deployment of the State Police in support of the Portland PD was the product of an agreement reached between Democrat Oregon Governor Kate Brown, and officials of the Trump Administration, which came after weeks of escalating violence in the rioting at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland.  Prior to the agreement being reached two weeks ago, the Portland Police Department had been ordered by Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to leave federal law enforcement agents defending the courthouse to fend for themselves, and did nothing while rioters organized themselves and provided for their logistical needs in the parks across the street from the courthouse.

Democrats Dance with the Devil.  No one realized how weak the mainstream Democrat Party had become, or how powerful Black Lives Matter and Antifa had become, until they destroyed downtown Minneapolis.  Until then, they had done little more than make nuisances of themselves. [...] The riots that started in Minneapolis quickly spread to Seattle, Chicago, New York, Portland, and dozens of other Democrat-run cities.  Local authorities didn't know how to react.  After all, the rioters were presumptive Democrat voters. [...] Black Lives Matter and Antifa seem to have thoroughly cowed the Democrat Party.  Whatever they wish, Democrats shall do.  You want us to defund the police?  Sure.  Paint BLM "murals" on city streets?  Hand me a roller.  Don't want us to prosecute rioters?  Wouldn't think of it.  Looting is payback for long-overdue reparations?  Well, yeah.  Okay.  Democrats must surely worry about the optics of bowing to the rioters' will.

The Fiasco of "Go Ahead, Break Our Windows" Policing.  After looters struck downtown Chicago on Sunday night, officials literally raised the bridges to prevent rioting hordes from roaming so easily.  They also blocked road access and stopped public transit.  So, we have come to this: a major American city is replicating the strategy of medieval castles: flood the moats and raise the drawbridges. [...] As we suffer through this summer of discontent, we can see a split emerging among big-city Democrats.  Most, like Portland's Wheeler, Minneapolis' Jacob Frey, Seattle's Jenny Durkan, and New York's Bill de Blasio, favor drastic concessions to protesters, beginning with sharp reductions in police budgets.  Seattle just passed a new budget cutting up to 100 officers, slashing salaries for department leaders, and dismantling the special team that removes homeless encampments, one of the city's worst problems.  Seattle's police chief, Carmen Best, responded by announcing her retirement.  She was the first black woman to head the department.  No matter to the city council, which was busy congratulating itself for taking what it called "a first step" toward upending the city's law enforcement.  Still, the vote wasn't unanimous.  One council member was angry because the cuts didn't go far enough.  This isn't sensible policy; it's senseless self-parody.

Feds now investigating Florida man accused of making bombs.  Federal agents are taking over the investigation of a Florida man who was arrested after police found more than two dozen pipe bombs near his home, including some that contained nails, screws and metal pellets.  Boynton Beach police said Thursday that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is now the lead agency investigating Gregory Haasze, 34.

Florida man arrested after pipe bombs found near strip mall.  A Florida man admitted to making more than two dozen bombs that were found near a strip mall Wednesday night, authorities said.  The explosives caused a scare that led police to evacuate a strip mall and nearby homes.  Gregory Haasze, 34, of Boynton Beach, is facing 26 counts of making, possessing, throwing, projecting, placing, or discharging a destructive device, WPEC reported.  According to online jail records, Haasz was booked at 5:27 a.m.  Thursday [8/13/2020], His bail was set at $26,000.

The True Victims of the Chicago Riots.  The riots rocking American cities have received less coverage lately, but they never really stopped.  On Sunday, Chicago, Illinois suffered another rampage that left 13 police officers injured and entire city blocks in ruins.  Coordinated via social media, a large group of looters converged in downtown Chicago around 1:00 a.m. on Sunday morning and began smashing windows and ransacking storefronts.  The looters initially focused on high-end stores such as Tesla, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Coach, as the criminals made their way through Chicago's "Magnificent Mile" shopping district.  But soon enough, the marauding spread to shops like Walgreens and Old Navy.  U-Hauls were spotted being loaded with spoils and multiple shootings broke out.

Portland Residents Worry as Protests Spread to Residential Neighborhoods.  The streets of downtown Portland were quieter on Tuesday [8/11/2020] as nightly protests approach 80 consecutive nights of unrest but that is not because protesters are giving up.  Instead, they are heading into residential areas, and people who live there are worried.  "The main action has shifted from downtown to residential neighborhoods on the east side of the Willamette River, bringing crowds of demonstrators and a heavy police force onto usually quiet nighttime streets," the Oregonian newspaper's online portal Oregon Live reported.  "People who live and work in areas where protests have taken place are not happy."

'It Was a Planned Attack.' Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Says Looting Was Organized.  A day after looters smashed-in retailer's windows, carried away loads of high-end merchandise and overwhelmed police officers in downtown Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the violence was an organized raid and not a demonstration of angry protest.  "When people showed up on Michigan Avenue in the downtown area with U-Haul trucks and cargo vans, and sophisticated equipment used to cut metal, and the methods that were used, and how quickly it got spun up... that wasn't any spontaneous reaction," Lightfoot told TIME in her fifth-floor offices at Chicago's City Hall on Tuesday [8/11/2020].  The chaos that unfolded Sunday night, and into the predawn hours Monday, was initially blamed on a police shooting in the city's southside Englewood neighborhood.  News of the incident — along with misinformation that a minor had been shot — pinballed on social media, resulting in "caravans" of cars headed north downtown, Lightfoot says.

The real world reasserts itself.  [Scroll down]  What has happened in Portland, and across much of America, was predictable, and predicted.  First, the progressives tolerate and even celebrate civil disobedience, because the cause is just and noble.  Then, to hold onto public attention, the protesters march and block traffic.  Next comes the cursing of cops, the throwing of trash, water bottles and rocks.  Then there's the smashing of store windows, looting and arson, and Molotov cocktails.  Finally, there's instigating violence with cops to get footage of police fighting back so the law enforcement officers can be painted by the progressive press as stormtroopers and the Gestapo.  In Portland, we reached the point where "peaceful protesters" tried to set a building ablaze with cops barricaded inside.  This, as the mayor said, is attempted murder.  Today, people watch their leaders in city after city fail to keep the peace and restore order as protesters riot at will, and they make plans to move out.  In the suburbs and country, they quietly observe the inability of cops to quell the violence, and they buy guns.

Elected Officials Need To Quell Riots Or There'll Be Bloody Street Justice.  Everyday Americans, seeing the savagery committed without consequence by Antifa, and in the name of Black Lives Matter, are fed up.  They've seen the looting, the destruction, the assaults, and the death that the "mostly peaceful" demonstrators are leaving behind.  They understand the difference between constitutional, peaceful protests and barbaric riots that are intended to destabilize and crack apart our society and Western civilization.  And they've watched elected officials not only approve of the violence but in some cases encourage it.  But if those elected officials don't soon take back the streets from the criminals, everyday Americans might soon do the job for them.

Footage of ANTIFA Setting Fire To Police Union Hall.  On 9 Aug. 2020, ANTIFA rioters in north Portland set the Portland Police Association building on fire again.  The building was also set on fire the previous month by rioters.  A mob of rioters threw burning debris inside the Portland police union building Saturday, sparking a riot declaration by police, who then advanced on the hundreds who gathered nearby.  [Video clip]

After 75 days, Louisville has had enough of its too-often violent protests.  Protests over the past few months in cities like Portland, Seattle and even New York have led to violence all too often.  Louisville, Ky., has had enough.  On Sunday [8/9/2020], its police department banned street marches and caravans that block city streets, restricting protesters to sidewalks.  It's more than reasonable; it's wise.  Clashes with police have led to injuries and arrests, and though the right to assemble is guaranteed by the First Amendment, public safety matters, too.  After 75 days of protests, no one can say Louisville doesn't allow dissent.

William Barr's truth bombs about media's 'peaceful protester' narrative MUST be heard.  You're being lied to by mainstream media.  If you're reading this on NOQ Report or listening to it through our podcasts, then hearing about fake news media's propaganda is probably not a new topic for you.  But if you haven't heard Mark Levin talking to William Barr about the issue as well as our EIC JD Rucker breaking down what's really happening in the world today, then set aside 30-minutes for this.  It'll be worth it.  Antifa and Black Lives Matter "peaceful protesters" are generally neither peaceful nor protesting.  They are rioting, looting, vandalizing, burning, destroying, and generally being menaces to the lawful society we crave, the lawful society we had achieved before this whole 2020 series of unfortunate events occurred.  Now, they are seizing on the opportunity to promote their agenda and mainstream media is falling in line with the supporting narratives.

Portland Police Officers Wounded In "Mortar Attack".  Sunday night a riot was declared in Portland once again after "mostly peaceful" protesters injured police in a mortar attack.  Two officers were injured in the attack, according to the Portland PD.  [Video clip]  "When the march reached the PPA, Portland Police made sound truck announcements to the crowd warning them not engage in criminal activities such as vandalism or attempting to set the building on fire," the Portland Police said in a statement.  "These types of activities would not be permitted and will result in arrest and potential use of force such as riot control munitions and tear gas."

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Says [the] National Guard [is] Not Needed After Looters Ransack Downtown Chicago.  A security guard was shot in Chicago as widespread violent rioting and looting overwhelmed the city.  The rioting began on Sunday evening in response to a black man who was shot by police after reportedly shooting at them first.  The guard, who has not yet been identified, is said to be in stable condition.

Massive Rioting And Looting Rocks Chicago After Police-Involved Shooting.  There are now videos circulating online that show widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of violence erupting all throughout the city of Chicago in light of a police-involved shooting that left a young man wounded.  Social media users on various platforms posted up videos of people in the city looting Walgreens, Macy's, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among many other stores.  There was even an exchange of gunfire between looters and police at some point during the evening.  No officers were harmed.

DHS Exposes the Horrible Truth About Violent Antifa Riots in Portland.  Friday marked the 70th consecutive night of violent antifa riots in Portland.  Early this month, the rioters shifted the focus of their violent attacks from the federal courthouse in downtown Portland to the Penumbra Kelly police building in a residential neighborhood.  Since the clashes no longer center on federal property and federal law enforcement, the Democratic narrative of excusing or ignoring the violence in order to demonize federal officers and President Donald Trump has fallen apart.  But myths about the federal involvement persist.  This week, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a document dispelling three big myths about the riots and the federal response.

Did Chicago Really Think this would Stay in the Black Neighborhoods?  When I visited Chicago a few years ago I asked the resident of the suburbs that I stayed with about the danger in the city and how they managed it.  I was told that the worst of it was confined to certain areas and as long as you avoided those areas you were generally safe.  Not anymore. [...] Closing thought:  The last republican Mayor in Chicago left office in 1931.

Magnificent Mile Riots, Looting Hit Democrat-Run Chicago.  "Hundreds of people swept through the Magnificent Mile and other parts of downtown Chicago early Monday, smashing windows, looting stores," reports the Chicago Tribune.  There was also gunfire and violence against police officers.  As of this writing, downtown Chicago is all but closed to those trying to get to work on a Monday morning.

Green Laser Eye Protection In The Wild.  We've all seen that Antifa/BLM has blinded the border patrol agents sent to protect federal property in Portland.  Andy Ngo has been directly attacked with a green laser, and he points out that the threat is expanding.  [Video clip] [...] This is remarkable video.  The communists have found an effective weapon short of using firearms.  So the question is necessarily posed, what can you do about this threat?  The answer isn't easy or clear short of deadly force (and this in fact may be the best option, but it may be difficult to effect that end for reasons we'll discuss below). [...]

Bezos discovers that $17 million doesn't buy much protection from the mobs.  Nobody has benefited more from the riots destroying retail stores in major cities than Amazon, which has seen the brick-and-mortar competition shrinking even faster than before.  And the company, founded by Jeff Bezos, has not been shy about donating $10 million to "organizations supporting justice and equity" and subsequently increasing the total to $17 million by matching employee donations.  If Bezos thought that such virtue-signaling would buy immunity for his Amazon empire from the mobs, he was mistaken.  Less than two hours ago, Andy Ngo posted video of a Seattle mob attacking an Amazon-owned Whole Foods retail outlet in Seattle, "us[ing] hammers to break windows one-by-one."

Widespread damage reported throughout Chicago after night of looting.  Chicago's top cop said about 100 people were arrested and 13 police officers were injured after a night of looting in downtown Chicago.  Widespread damage was reported throughout Chicago after looting and rioting began around midnight Monday [8/10/2020].  Witnesses reported hundreds of people smashing their way into stores throughout Michigan Avenue, areas in the South Loop and the near North Side.  Chicago Police Supt.  David Brown said the looting started as a result of misinformation following a police-involved shooting in Englewood.

Chicago rocked by widespread looting caught on video after police-involved shooting.  Videos circulating online show widespread looting and clashes with police across Chicago's Magnificent Mile shopping district early Monday [8/10/2020], sparked by an officer-involved shooting hours earlier that left a 20-year-old man wounded.  Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said as of Monday morning, responding units have arrested more than 100 people so far on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to battery against police.  He added that 13 officers were hurt in the unrest, including a sergeant struck in the face with a bottle and an officer who had his nose broken while scuffling with a group of looters.  "This was not an organized protest.  Rather, this was an incident of pure criminality," Brown told reporters.  "This was an act of violence against our police officers and against our city."

Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and confronting officers.  Hundreds of people swept through the Magnificent Mile and other parts of downtown Chicago early Monday, smashing windows, looting stores, confronting police and at one point exchanging gunfire with officers, authorities said.  More than 100 people were arrested as of 9 a.m., according to Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown.  Thirteen officers were injured during the unrest, including a sergeant who was hit by a bottle.  A civilian and private security guard were shot and wounded.

Insurance payouts fall far short of what's needed to rebuild Twin Cities.  Though Gov. Tim Walz has estimated that total losses will exceed $500 million, insurance companies have informed the Minnesota Department of Commerce that they will be covering a maximum of $240 million in riot-related damage.  In the 5-mile stretch of Minneapolis that sustained the heaviest destruction, uninsured losses among local small-business owners are at least $200 million, according to the Lake Street Council.

Should Motorists Run Over Anarchists at Impromptu Roadblocks?  Anarchists' widespread use of roadblocks to attack motorists requires citizens, and especially potential jurors, to understand the full implications of these incidents.  This is especially true given the propensity of some district attorneys and prosecutors to, as I see it, virtue-signal by filing charges against the motorists rather than the potential carjackers and highway robbers.  A "hasty roadblock" as deployed frequently by anarchists can often be construed as prima facie evidence of violent intent, and, as motorists cannot read the anarchists' minds, they must act on the situation as they find it. [...] There are videos of anarchists using "hasty roadblocks" to stop vehicles, which, at least as I see it, puts their drivers in reasonable fear for their safety.  This does not entitle drivers to take the law into their own hands by running over anarchists who are not trying to prevent them from escaping, or even those who have desisted from whatever violent acts they were committing but a moment ago.

Antifa gets WRECKED in Colorado neighborhood: 'You guys came to the wrong city, boys and girls'.  While it's certainly easy picking on and beating up elderly people, one group of black-clad Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists just learned the hard way that it ain't so easy picking on and beating up grown, die-hard American patriots.  During a pro-police rally Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado, a contingent of left-wing extremists reportedly showed up and stepped into the neighborhood across from the Fort Collins Police Services building where the rally was being held.  In response, the rallygoers apparently rushed into the neighborhood and chased the extremists right out, but not without first treating them to some fist sandwiches.  [Video clip]

Commentary on the video clip in the article above:
More evidence that Americans are fighting back.  One of the points I've made to anyone who will listen is that the Antifa and Black Lives Matter insanity we're seeing is a purely leftist phenomenon.  This leftism is not just because of the obvious fact that the activists are leftists; it's also because the cities that host their often theatrical violence are leftist too.  The truth is that, over the last two months, most American cities and towns have been peaceful, and most Americans are hostile to this street theater.

How to Stop Children Intent on Destruction.  President Trump has labeled today's protesters "anarchists," and rightly so.  They stream through the streets, breaking windows, bashing cars, setting fires, blocking highways, occupying city blocks, beating up innocent bystanders, and disobeying and attacking the police.  This is not the behavior of peaceful protesters who are only out to express their opinions.  It is the work of anarchists bent on destruction.  The question is, what's behind this behavior?  Is the violence purposeful, perhaps an effort to defund police; influence this year's presidential election; or bring about a coup at the local, state, or even national level?  Or is it violence for the sake of violence?  It's impossible to get inside the minds of individual protesters, and most of those individuals are not very articulate — they can't get beyond chanting three words.  So one must infer a motive based on their actions.

Far-Left Extremists Burn Police Building In Portland, Violently Attack Police Officers.  Far-left rioters attacked law enforcement officials in Portland on Saturday night and set an arson fire inside of a police building that they breached.  The group of rioters, estimated by police to have numbered in the hundreds, marched to toward the Portland Police Association (PPA) Office and "illegally block[ed]" traffic along the way.  "People within the crowd committed crimes when they erected a fence, pushed dumpsters into the street to block traffic, set a dumpster on fire, vandalized the PPA office with spray paint, and destroyed security cameras," the Portland Police Department said in a statement.  "At 11:35 p.m., people within the crowd broke the window to the PPA Office, unlawfully entered, and started a fire, committing the crimes of criminal mischief, burglary, and attempted arson."

More Than 100 NYPD Officers Injured In Protests Since June 10.  Approximately 111 New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers have been injured in demonstrations across NYC's five boroughs since June 10, a law enforcement spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  A total of 461 NYPD officers have been injured since the start of violent demonstrations on May 26 [...], NYPD spokesperson Sgt. Mary Frances O'Donnell told the DCNF in an email.  NYPD First Deputy Commissioner Ben Tucker told the city council on June 10 approximately 350 officers had sustained injuries since the start of the unrest, according to NBC 4.  Since his remarks, around 111 additional officers were hurt by demonstrators, according to O'Donnell.

Portland mayor unleashes police on violent demonstrations.  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who for weeks had blamed President Trump for fueling riots in his Oregon city, on Thursday acknowledged that the violence has continued even after the federal presence was curtailed, and told peaceful protesters to stay home.  Mr. Wheeler, who is also the city's police commissioner, said he's authorized officers to "do whatever is necessary" to gain control after another night of rioting against officers.  And he used a base political appeal to try to get the riots to stop, saying they're inadvertently helping Mr. Trump.

A protester tried to ID a cop on Twitter.  Now he faces a felony — along with four who retweeted him.  When Kevin Alfaro noticed a masked police officer befriending a counterprotester who had threatened him at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Nutley, N.J. on June 19, he whipped out his phone and took a picture.  Then he tweeted:  "If anyone knows who this b---- is throw his info under this tweet."  Now, Alfaro and four others who retweeted the post have been charged with cyber harassment, a 4th degree felony that carries up to 18 months of incarceration and a $10,000 fine.  A complaint sent July 20 to Georgana Sziszak, who retweeted the post, first reported by the Verge and reviewed by The Washington Post, claims that the tweet caused the officer to "fear that harm will come to himself, family and property."

CHOP shooting suspect fled Washington state, prosecutors say; warrant issued for his arrest.  An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday for an 18-year-old man who King County prosecutors say fled the state immediately after he fatally shot a man in June in the six-block area then known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) zone.  Marcel Long, who remains at large, was charged Wednesday with premeditated first-degree murder in the death of Lorenzo Anderson, a 19-year-old Seattle man who was pronounced dead at Harborview Medical Center 33 minutes after police received the first 911 calls about the early-morning shooting on June 20, the charges say.  The murder charge also carries a firearms enhancement.  Long, who also goes by the name Marcel Green and is known as "Celly Cell" on social media, has a last known address in Renton, according to the charges.  His bail was set at $2 million and he is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 19.

Commercial Grade Fireworks, Concrete, Rocks, Eggs Launched at Officers During Mass Gathering at Kelly Building.  [Scroll down]  Because of the criminal behavior occurring in the group, public address announcements were made declaring the event an unlawful assembly.  The crowd was told to disperse to the east immediately.  Despite the public address announcements, the crowd continued to block traffic on East Burnside Street and several continued to trespass on the Kelly Building property.  At 10:05 p.m., certain members of the group began taking concrete pieces off of a retaining wall nearby the Kelly Building.  These people then smashed the concrete on the ground into smaller pieces which were thrown at officers.  Certain people in the crowd shined lasers at officers, which can cause permanent eye damage. [...] Around 12 a.m., a vehicle was stopped and an occupant was arrested for shining a laser at the PPB's air unit.  At 12:10 a.m., individuals in the crowd gathered outside of the Kelly Building began throwing or launching frozen or hardboiled eggs, rocks, and commercial grade fireworks at officers positioned in the parking lot.

Portland PD Runs Antifa Right Off The Streets of Portland — Literally.  The video out of Portland tonight is almost comical.  Rather than dutifully march down the street and "persuade through movement" the rioters to give ground and disperse, Portland PD tonight [8/7/2020] performed a full-on charge in order to get Antifa/BLM rioters running away from the scene.  [Video clips] [...] It is hard to make a definitive judgment just from the videos, but the level of kinetic force being applied by the Portland PD and Oregon State Police seems to be escalating bit by bit.  Whether that is deliberate is hard to know.  It could be a tactic intended to "persuade" some number of protesters to quit before they personally suffer an injury or arrest.  If could also be a reflection of law enforcement frustration at facing the same problems night after night.

Democrat Domestic Terrorism Can No Longer Be Ignored.  It's become so normal for Democrats to engage paramilitary "brown shirts" to intimidate voters and coerce government officials before any big election that nobody is surprised when American cities begin to explode right on schedule.  For months, "blue" cities from Seattle and Portland to Minneapolis and New York have been little war zones, where Antifa insurrectionists throw Molotov cocktails and bricks at police officers by night and an apologetic army of Walter Durantys write glowing accounts of their revolution in the Democratic Party press by day.  They block major highways and terrorize passing motorists and replace American law with their own, and Democrat prosecutors applaud their tactics, just as they did for the Ku Klux Klan a century before.  Every election season, Democrats bring us Beirut, and every time, their organized violence goes unpunished.

Utah protesters face charges with potential life sentence.  Some Black Lives Matter protesters in Salt Lake City could face up to life in prison if they're convicted of splashing red paint and smashing windows during a protest, a potential punishment that stands out among demonstrators arrested around the country and one that critics say doesn't fit the alleged crime.

'You're not helping my Black friends': Neighbors confront destructive protesters, get splattered with paint.  On the second night in a row of vandalism and protests outside the Portland Police Bureau's East Precinct, two neighbors — both in their 70s — stood up against protesters responsible for the destruction.  "Wednesday night they broke windows, it was a real mess," said 73-year-old Penny.  By Thursday, Penny had had enough.  As protesters lit a fire outside East Precinct, Penny grabbed her fire extinguisher, her homemade Black Lives Matter sign, and with the help of her walker, made her way to the precinct to put out the flames.

The Perils of Pretending a War is Something Else.  [Scroll down]  Here's an equally scary current charade:  the straight-faced claim by Democrat leaders and their media enablers that there are only "peaceful protests" in the streets of our 400 torched cities — no riots, looting and arsons, no rioters, looters and arsonists associated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa communists.  Instead, the denial that the mayhem which has injured thousands and cost more than a dozen lives are only possible because of the support of lawless Democrat mayors and city councils who are preoccupied with disarming the police. [...] The fact that there have been no serious attempts by "peaceful protesters" to denounce the violence and the organizations that perpetrated it — speaks volumes to the effect that they consider themselves allies of the rioters and share their agendas.  Defunding the police, leaving the most vulnerable in society without protection against criminals is the goal of rioters, arsonists, looters, and so-called "peaceful protesters."  The charade protects the criminals and their crimes.

Trucking Company Owner:  Cities That Defund Police Are in for a Big Surprise.  Cities that decide to cut their police funding could be cutting their own supply lines, too.  That was the message a trucking executive carried to "Fox & Friends First" on Wednesday [8/5/2020], and it's something urban politicians — in the thrall of Black Lives Matter rioters and antifa anarchists — should be seriously considering unless they think citizens can start growing their own food.  Because if it's not safe for truckers to carry goods — they just might not do it.  And trucking companies won't be willing to risk the business.

Portland Descends Into Rioting Again, ANTIFA Attacks Police Station, Try To Set It On Fire.  Portland police declared a protest outside its East Precinct on Southeast 106th Avenue a riot late Wednesday night [8/5/2020] and said an explosive device may have been left outside the building.  The area around the unknown device was cleared and was later determined to not be an explosive.

BLM Thug In Austin Threatens Restaurant Patrons Laughing At Him And His Stupid Bullhorn.  Looks like someone needs a father figure but isn't getting one in this Austin restaurant.  BLM protesters made total fools of themselves as they fought amongst themselves turning their ire on each other at times this weekend.

Mazie Hirono, Pro-Antifa Democrats Walk Out of Hearing, Refusing to Utter a Single Word Against Their Violent, Racist Paramilitary Thugs, Antifa.  Kyle Shideler, an analyst for the Center for Security Policy and an expert in terrorism including the doctrines and tactics of Antifa, testified before Ted Cruz's panel of antifa violence yesterday [8/4/2020].  He says he was expecting the Democrats to demur about their paramilitary allies' violence — but he was shocked to find Democrats outright supporting antifa.

Always Victims, Never Bullies.  The Portland mayor cited Donald Trump sending in federal troops as the culprit for violence in Portland.  We are supposed to believe that before federal law enforcement arrived in Portland, "peaceful protesters" were holding hands, singing "Give Peace a Chance."  We are not to ask what led to Trump sending in federal troops or make any mention of rampant violence and burning buildings prior to Trump's actions.  When protesters tried to blockade a public road, a female driver attempted to maneuver past the crowd.  Aghast at the audacity of anyone unwilling to comply with their decision to ban any public street, at any time, the "peaceful protesters" miraculously transformed into a violent mob.  While jumping on the car, kicking, and hitting the vehicle, some rioters urged to get the "license plate and face" of the driver as they recorded the incident.  Why do they tell others to get a view of the license plate number and driver's face on camera?  To report her to the police.  Ironically, the violent rioters fighting for the abolition of law enforcement are incredibly eager to report any resistance to the authorities.

Journalist describes riot damage in cities across US: 'Beyond anything ... since at least the 1960s'.  Mainstream media outlets have failed the public by declining to spotlight the devastation left behind by rioters in cities across America, independent journalist Michael Tracey said Tuesday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."  In a self-published article titled "Two months since the riots and still no 'National Conversation,'" Tracey traveled to cities affected by violent protests and documented his findings using photographs and conversations with store owners and residents.

No Doubt About It:  Democrats Are Part Of The Riot ProblemQui tacet consentire videtur is the Latin phrase that means he who remains silent appears to consent.  The Democrats' silence when asked to condemn Antifa violence is coming through louder than a deranged Joe Biden outburst on the campaign trail.  New York Democrat Jerry Nadler didn't hit the mute button when he absurdly claimed Antifa was "imaginary," then later said its role in the Portland riots was a "myth that's being spread only in Washington D.C."  But the congressman set the tone for his party.  During Tuesday's [8/4/2020] Senate hearing — titled The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble:  Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence — Democrats had a wide open opportunity to state their position.  Instead, they went quiet.  "It is unbelievable the Democrats will not come out and say violence is wrong, breaking the law is wrong," Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn told Fox News.

Protester busted for allegedly trying to cut NYPD van's brake line.  A cop-hating protester was busted by the FBI on Wednesday [8/5/2020] for attempting to cut the brake line on an NYPD van, officials said.  Jeremy Trapp was also charged for allegedly telling a paid informant — who was embedded at a demonstration — that he wanted to blow up the Verrazzano Bridge, according to federal prosecutors.  "Had the NYPD not been watching him the consequences here could have been tragic," Assistant US Attorney Francisco Navarro said at Trapp's arraignment Wednesday on charges he tampered with a police vehicle.

BLM Rioter Gets Nailed After Allegedly Setting Fire to Courthouse on Camera.  It's probably not the best idea in the world if you're going to try to set fire to a courthouse that you do it on camera.  What's even worse is if you were posing for a picture with the very sign that you allegedly later use during the arson to set the fire so they could identify you from the protest.  [Video clip]

Terrorism Expert:  Antifa Developed From Communist Terrorist Movements Like Weather Underground.  A counterterrorism expert testified at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on Tuesday [8/4/2020] that antifa developed from communist domestic terrorist groups like the Weather Underground and has the goal of overthrowing the United States Constitution.  In his testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Kyle Shideler, Director and Senior Analyst for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism for the Center for Security Policy, said that antifa is an anarcho-communist movement that uses physical violence and intimidation to keep American citizens from engaging in the political process.  "While they do this under the cover of antifascism, the reality is that antifa defines the entire American political system, regardless of party affiliation, as fascism," Shideler explained during the hearing [...]

Crazy Mask Karen Goes Berserk in Walmart, Screams at and Punches Teen Boy For Not Wearing Face Mask.  A crazy mask Karen went berserk in a Post Falls, Idaho Walmart over the weekend when she spotted customers without their faces covered.  The enraged, overweight woman began screaming at a group of teenagers:  "You guys are abusing your freedom!  Stop it!" the woman screamed as she punched the teen boy who was recording her with his cell phone.

Shots fired at latest Portland riot.  Shots were fired early Wednesday morning [8/5/2020] as violent protests continued to rock Portland, Oregon, with demonstrators breaking into the Portland Police Association's offices and setting it on fire.  Police declared the event a riot and said they had to use "crowd control munition" to restore order — though they said no tear gas was used.  While they were dispersing that crowd, they said shots were fired nearby in what appeared to be two separate exchanges.  One vehicle was struck, but officers said they didn't find anyone hit, and no witnesses would speak to officers about what happened.

Documentary:  Love Trumps Hate.  In August 2019, Millie Weaver (AKA Millennial Millie) went to a Trump rally in Cincinnati, Ohio.  She carried with her a microphone emblazoned with Alex Jones's InfoWars logo.  Whatever one feels about InfoWars is irrelevant.  What is relevant, instead, is a 50-second-long clip of the video revealing that it is Trump's supporters, not the left, who truly embrace the idea that "love trumps hate."  Millie's goal last year was to get some of the anti-Trump protesters to walk over to the Trump-supporters and see if they were as bad as the protesters claimed they were.  Eventually, Marco, a black American, took her up on the challenge.  After he spent time with the Trump-supporters, Millie asked Marco to escort her back to the anti-Trump protesters so he could compare his experience with Trump-supporters to Millie's experience with the protesters.  The resulting video lasts 44 minutes and, if you have the time, is worth watching.  The difference between the welcome Trump's supporters offer Marco and the spittle-flecked, obscene, threatening invective that the protesters hurl at Millie is shocking.  [Video clip]

Just watch the first five minutes of the video clip, and you'll get the idea, very clearly.  You can spare five minutes, if you can withstand all the profanity from the hateful leftists.

What or Who Decides This Election?  [#4] The riots.  We at nearing peak Jacobinism, the point where the public is growing tired of Antifa/BLM and skeptical about the surreal Democratic denial in which the endless violence, vandalism, looting, killings, injuries, and statue-toppling are described as "intensified peaceful protests," or the work of only a "small number of lawbreakers."  The continuance of anarchy and chaos is being politically leveraged to create a general sense of civil unrest purportedly caused by Trump's controversial nature.  The Democratic strategy is to have protests that are violent enough to frighten the public, but not quite violent enough to destroy daily life, so swing voters will go into a collective fetal position, hands over ears, and shout that if they just vote out Trump, "it will all go away."  But if Antifa/BLM intensify or just continue the violence — Bible-burning is the latest addition to their repertoire — more police are killed or injured, and the Democrats keep denying the obvious, it could be a disaster for the Left.

Seven Major October Surprises Awaiting Democrats.  [#4] The riots.  Yes, Virginia, there really are riots, they really do hurt people, they really do burn and destroy property, and they really are evil people, not "moms" and "vets."  (One video of the "vets" showed them unable to even perform a simple about-face.  Yeah.  "Vets.")  Despite a quarantine on all violent riot activity footage by Hoax News, it still seeps out.  Barr's agents have arrested and charged hundreds.  Probably to be effective, he'll have to add some zeros to those numbers.  Still, this is a winning issue for Trump.  All it will take is a September murder of a cop or an innocent bystander by the fascist so-called Antifa or the Black Lives Murder thugs and public sentiment will swing rapidly.

BLM protesters say costly gear to protect them from cops prices them out of civil rights.  Five Black Lives Matter demonstrators in Seattle claim they're being priced out of their right to protest.  In a lawsuit filed Monday [8/3/2020] in federal court, they say that clashes with the Seattle Police Department have made it impossible for them to exercise their right to protest without expensive personal protective gear.  "Because protesters now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely, the indiscriminate use of weapons by SPD implicates equal protection," the lawsuit says.  The plaintiffs — Jessica Benton, Shelby Bryant, Anne Marie Cavanaugh, Alyssa Garrison and Clare Thomas — say helmets, gas masks, goggles, gloves, boots, umbrellas and other gear are needed against pepper spray and nonlethal projectiles used for crowd dispersal.

Chicago Dunkin' Donuts worker is fired and arrested after Illinois State Trooper finds 'large, thick piece of mucus' floating in his coffee.  A Chicago Dunkin Donuts employee was arrested and faces charges for allegedly spitting into an Illinois state trooper's coffee.  Illinois State Police said Vincent J. Sessler, 25, of Chicago, was arrested and charged Friday [7/31/2020] with disorderly conduct, reckless conduct, and battery to a peace officer following the incident which occurred the previous night.

Seattle Police Chief Slams City Council After Activists Target Her Home: 'You Must Forcefully Call For The End Of These Tactics'.  Seattle's Chief of Police called on Seattle's City Council to stand up against "mob rule" after "aggressive" activists reportedly targeted her home over the weekend, which scared her neighbors.  "I wanted to update you on recent events, particularly those that occurred late last night," Best wrote in a letter addressed to City Council President Lorena González and Public Safety Chair Lisa Herbold. [...]

Nadler Calls Riots 'Myth' — Then Blames Them on Trump and Barr.  [Scroll down]  Though Mr. Nadler attended law school, it is not clear if he was ever a terribly successful lawyer.  Somewhere along the line, however, he got struck with just enough common sense to realize that the rioting in the streets that he and fellow Democrats refuse to condemn and Mr. Nadler is on record calling "a myth" does not look very good heading into an election.  So, Mr. Nadler sought to blame the riots on Mr. Barr and, by extension, on Mr. Trump.  Yes, Mr. Nadler — AKA the exploded airbag — blames the riots on the only people who are lifting a finger to curb the riots and enforce, you know, the laws.  You know, the ones arresting rioters for assaulting innocent people, firebombing public buildings, torching police cars, and using lasers to blind officers.

More than 150 rounds are fired during a shooting outside a Portland apartment, as city suffers its deadliest month for 30 years.  More than 150 rounds were fired during a shooting in a Portland neighborhood on Friday, ending the city's deadliest month since the 1980s.  The Portland Police Bureau said Saturday that the shooting occurred around 11.08pm outside an apartment building near the 600 block of NE 87th Avenue.  A woman was struck in the arm by one of the rounds, police said.  Responding officers applied a tourniquet and she was transported to the hospital by ambulance with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

John Oliver Lies About Portland Violence, Reporters Run to His Defense.  The far-left talker insists 60-plus days of riots in the city are, all together now, "mostly peaceful."  Eh, it's just some graffiti and "light property damage," the highly paid NBC talent told his viewers earlier in the week.  The latter evokes a tipped-over lamp, a shattered end table or framed art that fell to the ground and splintered.  Want the truth?  Here it is:  [Video clip]

Overnight Riot Report:  Texas Police Don't Even Wait for the Sun to Go Down.  Word on the net tonight was that the action was going to be — supposedly — in Austin, Texas as Antifa/BLM was holding a memorial for Garrett Foster, the moron who pointed the business end of an AK-47 at active duty Army Sargeant Daniel Perry, who is well trained to not wait for the other guy to shoot first once engaged.  The not-so-well-trained former Air Force mechanic Foster ended up on the losing end of a shootout due to his failure to get off a shot.  Perry was driving for a rideshare company during his off duty hours on Saturday night last weekend when he turned down a street in downtown Austin, only to encounter protesters blocking his path.  Foster was among the group of protesters who moved to surround Perry's car.  Foster was openly carrying an assault rifle over his shoulder, legal in the State of Texas.  Foster approached the driver's side of the car and — using the assault rifle barrel — motioned for Perry to roll down his window. [Numerous video clips]

Minneapolis Police Advise:  Give Up Your Property To Criminals And Obey Them.  Minneapolis City Government's 'robbery prevention tips' include giving up your wallet and obeying criminals.  Police are encouraging residents to surrender to criminals as part of their "robbery prevention tips" willingly turn over your valuables, and no matter what, don't resist.

The Editor says...
How is that a robbery prevention tip?

Minneapolis police tell residents to obey criminals and 'be prepared' to be robbed.  Officials are now telling residents to be ready and willing to comply with the demands of criminals in an email sent to Third Precinct residents.  "Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet," the police said in their email, a copy of which was obtained by Alpha News.  The email said citizens should listen to criminals and "do as they say."  The message warned that "some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and some threatened with a gun."

The Editor says...
Minneapolis will probably end up under the control of Sharia police, who will be immune to criticism.

Trump-supporting grandmother outs 18-year-old as suspect who threw explosive at Portland courthouse.  A teenager in Portland charged with arson over the bombing of a federal courthouse was arrested after his grandmother tipped off police.  Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, 18, appeared in court in the Oregon city on Friday, and faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.  He was arrested after his Trump-supporting grandmother Karla Fox saw footage of Tuesday night's attack, and tweeted that her grandson was behind it.  She had bought him the vest he was wearing during the attack.

As They Turn To Burning Bibles, Portland Rioters Show Their True Colors.  While rioters previously attacked federal buildings, businesses, and even officers, this weekend, they found a new target:  Bibles.  A video posted to Twitter on Saturday shows rioters holding Black Lives Matter signs tossing Bibles into a fire.  Bystanders stood and watched as the flames licked away at the pages of the books.  "Left-wing activists bring a stack of Bibles to burn in front of the federal courthouse in Portland," wrote the Twitter user, Ian Cheong, who posted the video.

If you still aren't sure what the riots are about, here's video of rioters burning bibles.  Videos are still pouring out of Portland and Seattle where the riots continue with no major effort by the mayors or the governor to stop them.  There has been a slight increase in the ability of cops to do their job, after President Trump set a timetable for the National Guard to come in and take care of business, but it isn't even close to enough.  And what are the riots about?  Why are they doing it?  There are a lot of answers, but sometimes you just need to let them tell you what they're about by their own actions.  So watch this video of them burning a stack of Bibles.  [Video clip]

Portland Rioters Burn Bibles.  While they didn't really attack the police, they did attack religion.  [Video clip]

Man Gets 20 Years in Prison for Threatening Donald Trump, Prosecutor.  A Pennsylvania man convicted of threatening President Donald Trump and a district attorney was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday [7/30/2020].  "Authorities charged 28-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo with threatening to 'put a bullet' in Trump and then-Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli and threatening 'lethal force' against police," according to the Associated Press (AP).

Let Portland and Seattle burn.  [Scroll down]  In a clinical case of psycho-denial, the lefty Seattle mayor declared it a "Summer of Love."  Until they came for her, anyway.  The rioters went to her house after a city council member even more radical than the mayor apparently gave them her address.  They were armed with the usual collection of bricks, bats, guns, bottles and bombs.  From the street outside her house, they called her vile names and threatened her.  Did she really think the mob would settle for one police station?  Why would they, when even the mayor offers to surrender?  That's the one hand — the Dems denying the existence of the violence that we can see for ourselves on our television screens.  Who you going to believe, the Dems or your lying eyes?  On the other hand, even as the Dem politicians deny the existence of any violence, they contend that this violence which they deny exists is the fault of the police which they plan to abolish.  And, of course, the fault of Trump.

The Leftist/Violence Nexus.  Human dignity begins with the rule of law and is followed by behaving as if it applies to everyone.  But Philadelphia district attorney Larry Krasner don't seem to see it that way.  At about 6:30 p.m. on May 30, I bore witness to heinous violent acts at Chestnut Street between 16th and 19th where people were bullied, threatened, and harassed with veritable impunity by roving bands of rioters.  I witnessed no law enforcement presence.  I surmised they had been besieged by rioters setting police cruisers aflame to the north and east some time before.  Scenes such as these should frighten every American.  Both mayor Jim Kenny and Krasner are charged with the protection of all who live and work in Philadelphia.  By their intransigence, they failed abjectly and deliberately.  What little law enforcement there seems to have been in effect at the time missed the point while the ravening behavior of the mob missed the form.  Most alarmingly, the police did not immediately arrest those committing criminal acts, very probably at Krasner's behest and on political pretext.  Krasner, therefore, contrived the chaos that day to unfold exactly as it did.

The Violence Is the Point.  Let me give you a few scenes from the past few weeks — vignettes of a nation seemingly falling apart.  Protesters go online to boast about surrounding the car of a "white woman" and to complain that police came to her rescue and wouldn't allow them to imprison her in her vehicle.  Same with the protesters who blocked a couple in their car in order to shut down a bridge.  All of this was originally posted by the protesters themselves on social media, not as a shameful admission of their bullying and intimidation of random passersby, but as chest thumping.  This is the use of force as virtue-signaling:  "Look at me, I'm a good person who really cares about important issues, and you can tell that because I terrorized an elderly couple in their car." [...] The main thing to note about the resurgent violence is that there is no plan or program to it. [...] The current wave of demonstrations does not appear to be not tied to any particular reform agenda and it has no recognizable endgame.

This Is ANTIFA, This Is Portland, This Is Terrorism.  This shocking video took place on the evening of July 24th.  It is in chronological order and shows the level of violence happened at the Portland courthouse by ANTIFA.  The violence in Portland has now passed the 60 day mark with no signs of ebbing.  [Video clip]

The Video The MSM Will Never Show You:  The Massive Violence BLM and ANTIFA Have Brought The Past 2 Months!  This is the first compilation of just some of the violence we've documented the past 60 days since the death of George Floyd.  This 50 plus minute video doesn't even have the monument toppling and the newer violence footage from Portland and CHOP.  This video would be hours long if we included it.  [Video clip]

Democrat Who Volunteered To Work At Arizona Headquarters Ends Up Torching The Place.  A man who volunteered for the Arizona Democratic Party has been arrested for his involvement in setting the party headquarters on fire on July 24, police say.  Matthew Egler, 29, has been accused of arson, and sources say he had worked for the party from 2016 to 2017, but had been banned for unspecified reasons.  [Video clip]

NYPD Are Now Sending Unmarked Vans To Snatch Up 'Mostly Not Peaceful' Protesters.  A video showing a protester being taken into an unmarked NYPD Warrants Squad van went viral on social media on Tuesday [7/28/2020].  The protester is seen being taken into an unmarked van by plainclothes Warrant Squad officers in Kips Bay while other uniformed officers keep other protesters away.  Police confirmed that NYPD officers are seen making an arrest in the video.  [Video clip]

Four Months of Unprecedented Government Malfeasance.  Over the last four months, Americans have lived through what is arguably the most consequential period of government malfeasance in U.S. history.  Public officials' overreaction to the novel coronavirus put American cities into a coma; those same officials' passivity in the face of widespread rioting threatens to deliver the coup de grâce.  Together, these back-to-back governmental failures will transform the American polity and cripple urban life for decades.  Before store windows started shattering in the name of racial justice, urban existence was already on life support, thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns.

Leftist rioters, like their Marxist muses, are literal revolutionaries.  [Scroll down]  The rioters, by their own admission, are implacable.  They have no demands that can be met, short of overthrowing our entire societal framework and constitutional system.  They're not rioting over slavery, which was ended years ago.  They're not demanding equal opportunity under the law or the advancement of civil rights laws, which were enacted decades ago.  They don't seek dialogue.  How can you reason with young white leftists who abuse and assault cops, and call African American cops racist?  How do you reason with spoiled, self-indulgent and sanctimonious malcontents?  Think about it:  While rioting over alleged white privilege and white racism against blacks, they lecture, malign and bully blacks.  It is tragically surreal.

How It's Done:  Colorado Reporter Puts on a Clinic in How to Accurately Report on Violent Rioters.  As we've previously documented, the gaslighting from the MSM on the violent left-wing riots that have taken place in Democrat-run parts of the country over the last two months has been absolutely out of control.  There is literally not a day that goes by where there is not some glaring instance of a media outlet like the New York Times or Reuters painting protests as "mostly peaceful" or otherwise "dying down" until federal law enforcement officers have the nerve to step in to stop the anarchy.  Violent agitators in these reports are almost always referred to as "protesters."  Along with that, excuses are often made for their violent actions, as though just the mere presence of state and/or federal law enforcement officers on the scene to protect innocent citizens and federal property is excuse enough for the agitators to try and blind them with laser beams and hurt them with the nail-studded projectiles they hurl.  One Colorado reporter, however, went against the MSM "peaceful protester" grain in a recent report he filed on the Aurora, CO protests and riots that happened over the weekend.

Hell's Angels member believed to be 'Umbrella Man' spotted inciting violence during George Floyd protests.  A man who was spotted inciting violence during the George Floyd protests, known as "Umbrella Man" due to the umbrella he was carrying, is believed to be a member of the Hell's Angels and an associate of the Aryan Cowboys biker gang, according to an affidavit.  A search warrant application filed Monday [7/27/2020] in Hennepin County District Court states, on the afternoon of May 27, a man seen wearing all black and carrying an umbrella was spotted walking along the front of a Minneapolis AutoZone and smashing out the windows with a sledgehammer.  The AutoZone was kitty-corner from the Minneapolis Third Police Precinct.

Democrat Sanctioned Terrorism:  Antifa-BLM Protesters are Packing Their Fireworks Bombs with Nails.  Antifa-Black Lives Matter protesters attacked the Atlanta Field Office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with nails embedded in fireworks bombs.  The left claims these people are peaceful protesters.  The Democrat-sanctioned protesters ransacked the Atlanta ICE office last weekend.  Notice the Marxist flag they displayed.

ACLU sues Portland Police:  Stop filming, broadcasting riots.  The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the Portland Police Bureau to stop them from documenting the nightly riots that have besieged the city for more than 60 days.  The lawsuit, which was filed on late Wednesday [7/29/2020], contends that the police union's practice of filming and broadcasting the riots — which are filmed and broadcasted by numerous journalists, independent documentaries, and livestreamers — violates an Oregon state law that bans police from collecting or even maintaining information about the political, religious or social views, associations or activities of people who are "not suspected of criminal activity."

The Editor says...
Rioters are not only suspected of criminal activity, they are engaged in criminal activity.  The moment you commit a crime, you are guilty.  Moreover, anyone on a public street is likely to be photographed by all kinds of people at any moment, especially when engaged in violent sedition.

ACLU Sues Portland Police to Block Them [from] Videotaping Protesters.  On Wednesday [7/29/2020], the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon sued the Portland Police Bureau, trying to block them from livestreaming protests.  The ACLU claimed in their lawsuit, "By livestreaming videos of protesters, PPB collects or maintains information about their political or social views, associations and activities."  "Plaintiffs have no adequate remedy at law for PPB's violations, which pose a serious and imminent threat of irreparable harm to them and other protesters alike," the lawsuit continues.  "Specifically, PPB cannot 'undo' a video through which its officers identify or otherwise collect information about a protester.  Nor can it force a third party to 'un-learn" information about a protester that the third party obtains by watching PPB's live stream.  Moreover, any damages associated with such conduct by PPB would be, by their very nature, extremely difficult or impossible to quantify."

6 Big Takeaways From the Attorney General's Capitol Hill Testimony.  [Scroll down]  During his opening remarks, [Rep. Jim] Jordan presented a video showing TV reporters proclaiming the peacefulness of the summer's protests before cutting to a press conference with the family of David Dorn, 77, a retired St. Louis police captain who was shot and killed by rioters.  [Video clip]  The video then went to mass riots in which participants set fires, looted stores, broke windows, and tore down fences.  Jordan played the video days after Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., declared on camera that Antifa, an extremist group believed to be behind much of the violence, was a "myth."  Later in the hearing, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., showed his own video of what he called peaceful protests that followed the police killing of a handcuffed black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Democrats Surrender in Portland.  The Democrats' surrender in Portland, coming so precipitously after the appearance by Attorney General Barr before the Judiciary Committee in the House, looks like a favorable development, insofar as it goes.  It may be too soon for victory to be declared by America's government and other allies of moderation, law, and order.  We'd like to think, though, that the capitulation in Portland suggests that principle can prevail.  The deal was struck Wednesday, the day after Mr. Barr laid down the law before the House Judiciary Committee:  "Since when is it okay to try and burn down a federal court," Mr. Barr now famously said.  Five days earlier, a United States district judge had tossed out a lawsuit filed by the Oregon's state attorney general seeking an order to curb the actions of federal officers.  The judge said Oregon lacked standing.

Riots for thee, but not for me.  Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle experienced her own 'come to NIMBY' moment in June.  After shrugging off weeks of vandalism, riots, the terrorizing of local businesses at the CHOP (Capitol Hill Occupied Protest) encampment, and even two murders, as a 'Summer of Love', Durkan was confronted with bullhorns on her doorstep.  Led by the militant city council member Kshama Sawant, rioters marched to the mayor's home.  Incensed, Mayor Jenny demanded an investigation into Sawant for daring to disturb her domestic sanctum, far from the colorful and homicidal 'street carnival' on Capitol Hill.  Durkan took immediate action to break up the CHOP menace. [...] As Fidel Castro once said, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet.  The key is to make sure it's not your egg that gets cracked.

Do Burning Cities Mark Start Of Democrats' 'Civil War 2.0'?  It's become obvious to one and all:  The left media and so-called progressive Democrats would rather see urban bonfires than lose to Donald Trump in November.  Asked recently about 59 straight days of protests and violence in Portland, New York Rep. Jerry Nadler called reports of Antifa rioting there a "myth."  Not to be outdone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened the federal police sent to quell the disturbances to "Nazis." This is today what passes for leadership in the Democratic Party, which since losing in 2016, has undergone an extreme makeover to become the most radical "mainstream" party in the U.S. in modern times.  To find its equivalent, you'd have to go back to ... let's see, 1860 and 1861, when the very same Democratic Party convinced 11 states to secede from the union, thus setting off the Civil War.

The Seditious Among Us.  By refusing to condemn and, instead, implicitly encouraging the ongoing riots and violence, as well as meekly acquiescing to the demands of the left-wing extremist, the Democrat party establishment, which includes the mainstream media, has exposed their spinelessness for the world to see and signed on to government by mob rule.  The Marxist ideologues in the nation's professoriate, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the media and the extreme left-wing of the Democrat party have unabashedly declared their primary objective is to overthrow the government and radically transform the nation.  Yet, there is no condemnation or repudiation of these goals from Biden, the Democrat party hierarchy or the mainstream media.  By their silence they have wordlessly endorsed sedition. [...] There is but one word to describe this cabal:  traitors.  Not because they wish to see Trump defeated or choose to not vote for him in November but that they are willingly and openly in league with those implacably bent on overthrowing the government and radically transforming the United States.

The Purpose of Government.  The term "domestic Tranquility" refers to peace and order; the ability of citizens to be secure from harm, and for property to be safe from destruction.  Tranquility centers on local governments establishing and enforcing laws that create good order and discipline in the community.  This goes to the very heart of government which is to provide security and stability.  Who would open a restaurant or a trade if security cannot be guaranteed?  Or open a business if officials did nothing to lawbreakers?  Answer — nobody.  Right now, across the nation, Democrat mayors and governors are failing to provide domestic tranquility.  Portland, Oregon has experienced 60 consecutive days of rioting in which large areas of downtown are occupied by anarchists who loot businesses and burn cars; people who interfere are beaten.  Yet Portland's Mayor Ted Wheeler does nothing.  Actually, Wheeler supports the rioters in that he told the police to "stand down."  Wheeler even showed up to riot with them and was tear-gassed.  The same thing is happening in Seattle, Chicago, and New York.

Outrage after NYPD hustles protester into unmarked van.  The New York Police Department's use of plainclothes officers and an unmarked minivan to haul away a vandalism suspect during a protest Tuesday created confusion and drew outrage from people who compared it to covert tactics used recently by federal agents in Portland, Oregon.  Bystander video of 18-year-old Nikki Stone's arrest spread quickly on social media, along with comments such as "nypd is out here KIDNAPPING protesters off of the street."

Apparently Suzie Snowflake has never seen anyone get arrested before, since she can't differentiate an arrest from a kidnapping.

Federal agents to begin leaving Portland's downtown:  DHS, Oregon governor.  The federal agents who have clashed with protesters in Portland will begin a "phased withdrawal" from the city's downtown area starting Thursday, Oregon's Democratic Gov. Kate Brown announced.  Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said in a statement that he and Brown have been in contact over the past 24 hours and reached a joint plan to end "the violent activity in Portland directed at federal properties and law enforcement officers."  "That plan includes the robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland," Wolf said.  "State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months.  Oregon State Police will coordinate with Federal Protective Service (FPS) officers to ensure all federal facilities remained protected and secure."

Antifa Terrorist Who Threw Bomb at Federal Agents in Portland is Identified — By His Grandmother!  As reported earlier this morning by Cassandra Fairbanks — An Antifa militant in Portland threw what appears to be an improvised explosive device at the federal courthouse in Portland on Monday evening [7/27/2020].  Rioters have been attacking the building for over 60 days. [...] The bomber has been identified — Thanks to his grandma!  Thanks to the internet sleuths at 4Chan.  Here is video of the terrorist throwing the bomb at federal agents!  [Video clip]

Democrat Liars Are Barely Even Trying to Fool Us Anymore.  [Scroll down]  There simply are not that many people rioting.  They only manage to round up a few hundred cretins a night in Portland, but if you dive below the surface you see that this fight is an idiot magnet for losers across the country.  This is a nation of 330 million people, and maybe 2,000 are involved in the violence the mainstream media shows every night (albeit in a sanitized and curated form designed to convey the official narrative).  That's nothing.

School social worker placed on administrative leave, accused of attacking state senator.  One of the women accused of attacking state Sen. Tim Carpenter has been put on administrative leave by the Mount Horeb Area School District.  Samantha Hamer, 26, is employed as a social worker for Mount Horeb schools, according to the district's website.

Oregon is in talks with the White House to pull federal troops OUT of Portland.  The Trump administration has initiated talks with the Oregon governor's office about withdrawing federal agents deployed to quell protests as Portland officials reveal the city is fining the government $500 every 15 minutes for erecting an unauthorized fence around its courthouse.  The White House said it would agree to draw down the presence of troops if the state stepped up its own enforcement, an anonymous senior White House official told AP Tuesday [7/28/2020].  The talks are with the office of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown and are in the early stages and there is still no agreement.

What leverage does the City of Portland have over the federal government, so that they have any hope of collecting arbitrary fines?

Wolf vows federal agents won't leave Portland until courthouse at center of rioting is 'safe and secure'.  Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Wednesday [7/29/2020] that federal agents will not leave the city of Portland, Ore. until a federal courthouse that has been repeatedly attacked by rioters is "safe and secure."  "We will continue to keep law enforcement officers in the area to make sure that that courthouse is secure at the end of the day," Wolf told host Bill Hemmer.  Earlier Wednesday, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced that federal agents would begin a "phased withdrawal" from Portland Thursday.  Wolf said that he and the governor had agreed on a plan to end "the violent activity in Portland directed at federal properties and law enforcement officers" that called for "the robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland."

Portland's Wall of Moms crumbles amid online allegations by former partner, Don't Shoot PDX.  Portland Wall of Moms, a group formed in recent weeks and quickly recognized as a staple of nightly downtown protests, was accused publicly Wednesday [7/29/2020] of "anti-Blackness" by leaders of an existing, Black-led community group.  Wall of Moms, whose members said they aimed to support and protect other Black Lives Matter protesters near the fence in front of the federal courthouse, announced Friday that its white leadership had rescinded their positions to allow women of color to be in charge.  New leaders announced Friday include Teressa Raiford, executive director of Don't Shoot Portland, Demetria Hester and Danialle James.  But less than a week later, Don't Shoot Portland took to Instagram to urge people against supporting the Wall of Moms, saying that it was no longer working with the moms group.

Portland business owner on impact of riots, coronavirus: 'It's terrifying'.  Two months of daily and nightly protests and rioting have devastated the city of Portland, Ore., leaving many residents and businesses in a state of fear and uncertainty.  On Tuesday night's edition of "Fox News @ Night," host Shannon Bream talked with Stacey Gibson, owner of five fast-food restaurants in the Portland area, including one in the troubled downtown section.  "It's terrifying," Gibson said about trying to keep her businesses alive — and her employees in their jobs — amid the twin disasters of the coronavirus and the rioting, which Bream described as a "one-two punch."

Are You Sure 'Vote for Joe Biden or We'll Kill You' Is the Best Campaign Pitch?  Supporters of a candidate with confidence in the politician's ability to win based on making the better argument don't usually use the heckler's-veto-on-steroids to coerce people to their point of view.  Yet that is precisely what Ronald Brownstein did in an article in The Atlantic.  The underlying tone of the article is:  "Vote for Joe Biden or the national temper tantrum will only get worse."  He accuses the president of positioning blue cities as a threat in order to rally voters to his law-and-order agenda.  A brief scroll of Twitter will show you that riots in cities like Seattle and Portland are absolutely a threat to safety and security.  No one needs President Trump to point it out.

Rep. Jordan Opens AG Barr Hearing with Brutal Video Highlighting Antifa Violence, Looting and Rioting.  During a House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr Tuesday morning, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, went over the heads of the corporate media to show a brutal video highlighting the violence and mayhem of the Black Lives Matter and antifa mobs.  Rep. Jordan opened his remarks by skillfully running through all of the evidence that proves the Obama administration spied on the opposition party and President Trump during and after the 2016 election.  Jordan then played the nearly eight minute video, which starts out with a montage of media and Democrat politicians describing the riots as "peaceful protests."  The video goes on to expose what Democrats and th
