Saturday News Roundup: Portland Rioters Up the Ante Again as Biden Promises to Shut the Country Down

This is a really strong point. – President Trump put out the following tweet this morning, and it is worth noting:

Did you know that no Democrat presidential nominee has even set foot in Wisconsin since 2012? And this year, after cancelling their planned convention in Milwaukee and moving the fake convention to Delaware for no good reason, the Democrat Party doesn’t even have to good grace to try to steer a little attention Milwaukee’s way.

Prior to 2016, Wisconsin had been a reliable Democrat stronghold in presidential races. The Fainting Felon was so confident of carrying the state that she didn’t bother to hold a single campaign stop there. Big mistake.

Surely the Biden handlers aren’t dumb enough to make the same error again, are they? Don’t necessarily bet on that. Yesterday, word out of the campaign was that it intends to continue its Hidin’ Biden strategy, keeping their Unfrozen Caveman Nominee in the basement of his home while having the younger, more coherent Kamala Harris do all the hard work out on the campaign trail.

Who knows? Maybe this strategy can work in a general election. Besides, when you are putting up a candidate who doesn’t know where he is most day, keeping him in a single location is most likely far less risky than sending him out there to actually meet and talk to people.

Uh, listening to “scientists” to the exclusion of everyone else is why we’re in an economic recession, Joe. – Also on Friday, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Handsy Farty China Joe Biden promised to shut the country down again on the advice of Anthony Fauci:

That should make everyone feel better, huh?

Speaking of listening to the wrong scientists… – In a terrific piece in the Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel looks back at the Biden/Obama administration’s disastrous handling of the H1N1 virus back in 2009-10.

Where more than 5 million Americans have been infected by COVID-19 this year, more than 60 million Americans contracted H1N1. It was only through the grace of God and incredibly good luck that H1N1 was not nearly as deadly as COVID-19 that America did not suffer an enormous calamity during that time.

From the Strassel piece:

The Ebola example is designed to divert attention from a more relevant comparison: the H1N1 swine-flu outbreak of 2009-10. Democrats don’t like to talk about H1N1, because it didn’t go well. If it had been as deadly as Covid-19, the toll would have been catastrophic. The history is a powerful reminder that governments can’t stop a virus—although they can make epidemics worse.

H1N1 began much like corona, with panicked stories in late April 2009 about a novel “hybrid” flu strain in Mexico that was popping up in the U.S. It was even more alarming, in that it especially affected children. Yet the new administration began with a muddled message. Mr. Obama encouraged calm, while Mr. Biden rambled a warning about staying off airplanes and public transport—prompting backlash. “Biden’s flu gaffe a headache for Obama,” read one headline.

Within days, some 30 states had suspected cases, and by April 27 the U.S. had its first death, a 23-month-old child. Other countries started shutting facilities, telling citizens to stay home, quarantining visitors. The Obama administration still had no idea how deadly the disease was, though the World Health Organization called the outbreak a threat to “all humanity,” and health experts predicted hospitals would be overloaded.

The administration nonetheless took a resigned approach to its spread. Mr. Obama didn’t close the Mexican border, saying that would “be akin to closing the barn doors after the horses are out.” His officials did declare a health emergency (Mr. Obama was golfing that day) and distributed the national stockpile (which they never replenished). The administration recommended schools “consider” closing if experiencing an outbreak, though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief said this might not help with spread and warned about taking kids out of classrooms. No one considered a national lockdown, especially not an administration focused on a fragile economic recovery. Mr. Obama promised to “control” the “impact” of the virus—not the virus itself. He asked Congress for all of $1.5 billion.

Authorities grew more optimistic as H1N1 turned out to be less deadly than had been feared, but they still faced the risk of an uglier strain in the fall. Team Obama promised 100 million doses of vaccine by mid-October. (A flu vaccine is easier to produce than a coronavirus vaccine). But government setbacks in production, manufacturing and dosing protocols resulted in only 11 million doses, prompting national outrage. By that point, the CDC estimated 22 million Americans had been infected, 36,000 children hospitalized, and 540 kids had died.

[End]

Guess who the Obama administration mainly relied upon for advice during that epidemic: Anthony Fauci. In yesterday’s interview, Biden said “we can’t get the economy going again until we control the virus.” Anthony Fauci has been in this job for more than 40 years and in all that time has failed to control a single virus.

If we keep listening to that little menace, it will be our nation’s downfall.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The riots raged on in Portland for the 84th straight night, as the Democrat-sponsored and funded rioters grew increasingly violent and aggressive, safe in the knowledge that, if arrested, they will quickly be released by the local Soros-funded District Attorney.

Here is some of what the great Andy Ngo informed us about overnight:

In response to last night’s Democrat-sponsored mayhem, President Trump tweeted a plea to communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown to request federal help:

But the Democrats love this stuff – it is their creation, after all. So, the President will be waiting in vain for his desired invitation.

If you live in Portland and have the means to get out of there, now’s the time. Because it’s only going to get worse.

That is all.

Greg,
I have the football teed up for you! Sometimes a yo-yo is fun. This article was very encouraging. Written by a lawyer, but actually connects several dots. I am a gluten for good articles and think you will be happier today after reading this.

Gregg

Thanks Stewartswede,

I appreciate reading and you linking the article as I cannot allow myself to read and research this crap all day – I got to try to maintain my sanity. If you notice much of my commentary is devoted to historical events and direct commentary on Dave’s pieces. The article itself sounds a lot like a buttressing argument for the case Dave made about how Durham is conducting this investigation.

Regarding Barr and Durham’s investigation: When I have been negative about Barr it is when I see obvious and apparent missed prosecution opportunities and the extremely long time it has taken to get here. I worry and express my concerns about the DOJ running out the clock either on the Trump administration or by statue of limitations. I in no way wish to convey I have developed a F-it attitude and hope and prey the evildoers see real justice for a variety of reasons, but most importantly to restore the nation’s faith in the rule of law and equal justice under the law.

I think everyone here and across the country is fed up with the DEMOCRATIC PRIVILEGE that has run that town for over a hundred years.

Also, reading that writer’s explanation on wading through and parsing DC legalese, it reminds me of how much of that BS gobbledygook I put up with when I worked there. Leaving that town and VA was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Justice, oh the peace!

Silas

dammit

adrian

One other thing….when President Trump gets re-elected and when the verdict on the George Floyd trial comes back in the commies are going to tear this country apart….I’m afraid we ain’t seen nothing yet.

Silas

Adrian – About our earlier conversation, I’m as guilty as the next person about banging the drum when it comes to the marxist scum. I made an active decision to remove myself from the arena of conflict and urges any and all who would listen to do the same.

When Donald Trump was elected, I watched as they destroyed public and private property in their moment of disbelief and anger. I knew then, it was only going to get worse as time went by.
Now, that moment has come, and Portland is found wanting. The mayor and the governor will rue the day they let the shit go on for more than a couple of days. As others have said Portland will become like Detroit, a burnt out husk of what was once a great city.

adrian

True….but I bet the good Mayor Wheeler will be long gone with his pile of money living his life out on some real nice lake and not give a tinkers damn about what he left behind…that’s the way of the Democommies.

Silas

I’d tell the demoncrats: Try to match wits with Trump at your own peril. But they’d just sneer at me and do it anyway.

The more he trolls them the more insane they get.

brian

Thats the beauty of it all…

phineas gage

What a shocker:

https://www.outkick.com/nba-ratings-trouble/

It’s hilarious to watch this writer cast about for an explanation, ignoring the large pachyderm in the middle of the room.

Silas

Get woke, go broke. Big bad LeBron’s going to find out what no job means real soon. And the sportscating business will go right down the shitter with them.

phineas gage

He’s nearly done, worth a billion dollars, and won’t feel a thing within his crushing void of stunning ignorance.

It’s all the others that are swirling the proverbial bowl.

phineas gage

Michelle did not mention Kamala in her convention speech.

Obama mentioned Biden once.

Quite telling, I think. The Obamas don’t want to be associated with the stench of a landslide-loser.

adrian

Love when these anarchists start whining and squealing like little pigs about their ‘rights’ after they have destroyed everyone else’s. The sad part is when, over a megaphone, they start telling the cops about how they will be released in the morning….The D.A. in Portland should be arrested and the sooner the better. Can someone there make a citizen’s arrest on him for violating his oath of office? People have to start doing something besides standing around and watching these idiots beating people and trying to destroy law and order. When will they be sick of this almost 3 months of criminal activity?

brian

We have all been assured that the DoJ is watching this all closely… and likely taking notes…

well ok making really funny flip books.

Silas

Been trying to stay optimisitc, but there are times….

Silas

With Portlanders that hard to say. You will most likely see something start happening when it begins to spread out more. People will either start calling city hall and complaining or they will just let it go on. But sooner or later, they’re going to cross paths with somebody who will start shooting at them. It’s just a matter of time.

Liberty Writer

Silas “they’re going to cross paths with somebody who will start shooting at them”.

The liberal DA’s and Judges will be on anyone fighting the Communists like flies on horse shit. It will be interesting to see what the police do. In many cites police are bending over to accommodate any rioters.

Silas

No argument there. But none the less, they will push some folks to the point of no return. It will be as it will be.

adrian

I agree about someone crossing the paths with a lawful gun owner protecting their property or life but calling city hall will be worthless as this D. A. and Mayor are one of them….WE as a people have to start standing up to this period. If this were in my area I would be out there doing something about it. It’s getting to late for the cops to help….vigilantism is going to have to make a come back and some of these commies hung from the highest tree

Silas

We’re talking Portland here. I know a little about the denizens of that once fair city. They’re too stoned and laid back to do anything really. There will be some push back from some folks, but not enough to make a difference.

As I said, they will either start nagging at city hall or do nothing.

You going all vigilante there would end with the bought off DA of Multnomah county charging you with felony crimes, locking you up and using you as an example of what happens when you go up against their little marxist pawns.

Hate to be a Debbie Downer, but that’s why I moved the wife and I out of the Portland metro area a year ago. It wasn’t easy to do but God helped us find a way. Some will be caught behind enemy lines, all we can do is pray for them and hope they don’t get caught in the crossfire.

adrian

You’re right of course….I kind of sounded like a keyboard warrior..lol…but this crap gets me hot under the collar. There has to be a way for the good folks to start pressing back by organizing a response to this nonsense in some way besides sitting by and letting it go on and on

Silas

Ghislaine Maxwell has survived 51 days in jail!

CNN should have a running chyron.

Na, they are pulling for her demise to protect all of the dem pedos

Liberty Writer

Notice how the rioters are better equipped and better trained than the police.
Additionally: Notice how police don’t know who the rioters are, where they stay, don’t have video for arresting rioters after rioters assault police.
Conclusion: These riots are run by the political class of Portland and above. The police are just chattel here to serve the purpose of the Mayor, City Council Governor etc. who facilitate these riots.

Silas

You give the mayor Portland and his politcal allies too much credit. Here’s a little reading for you on Antifa and who they really are.

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/16104/antifa-history

Gregg

I wonder if the cops are getting bought off with huge amounts of hazard duty pay?

There is just no way I, as a cop, would lift a finger under these prevailing conditions.

Silas

Mayor Teddy is the one keeping them from doing their job. I will bet a super sized lunch at your favorite fast food place that if they could, the police would be on them like flies on shite. Thay are only being allowed to arrest the little sociopaths and psychopaths when they push the police to hard.

phineas gage

They’ll probably still charge him for the service:

Stay Free with the truth

This just in from Vlad Putin-all your postal service are belong to us.
The KGB conquered the USPS with all those government worker commies so that Emmanuel Trumpstein could become der Führer!
Cruella was counting on the dreamers vote and this round the CPUSA is counting on their comrades at the USPS to deliver the great leap forward by any means necessary.
No mention of peach mint at the CPUSA shindig? Why not?
Russian hackers aren’t hot anymore? They still have Cliché Guevara shirts at Hot Topic so don’t throw these out with the hopey changey posters.
Has anyone seen the OMG like totes fainting hopey changey girls or did Dear Leader Messiah pay their rents and fill up the gas tanks for the good of the collective.

We shouldn’t need another shutdown, because Bill Gates is bringing us a vaccine. Here is an interesting clip from an interview with the Gates of Hell. Norah O surprisingly asked some real questions. He is pure evil. Oh and today some health minister in Virginiastan said vaccines would be mandatory for everyone, comrades.

Let Portland and Seattle burn. Burn them both down! Let them be the West Coast Detroits. Stinking, rotten, filthy DemocRats destroy everything they touch.
