Monday News Roundup: Austin Becoming the San Francisco of Texas; Trump to Shine Spotlight on Kenosha

Austin is destined to become the San Francisco of Texas. – Hell, it already is, in part, with homeless encampments lining the sidewalks of its downtown area and piles of homeless-generated trash and human refuse stacked under its freeway overpasses. 30 years of uninterrupted Democrat stewardship will do that to any city.

On Friday, Democrat leaders in Austin took the next step towards total destruction, “reallocating” 95 police jobs in ways that will ensure the city’s crime rate will continue to skyrocket. The move comes after a new study finds that Austin already has seen the most rapid increase in murders of any American city this year:

The details of the reassignments of 95 officers from “specialty” duties to simple patrol functions are stunning. They will effectively disband units assigned to police gang activities, DWIs and park-related crimes, thus ensuring the level of chaos in the city will only continue to grow.

From a report at KXAN TV in Austin:

The Austin Police Department plans to move 95 officers from specialty units — including Park Patrol, Narcotics, DWI Enforcement, Organized Crime, and Gangs — to patrol as part of its adjustment to budget cuts imposed by the Austin City Council, according to KXAN sources and an internal document detailing the transition.

APD posted an unlisted YouTube video on Thursday in which Chief Brian Manley outlined the upcoming changes. The process to move some specialty unit officers to patrol takes effect on Jan. 17, 2021, though some will begin back-filling patrol positions on Sept. 27 as part of a plan an APD spokesperson said is unrelated to the reorganization.

The Austin City Council approved a 2020-21 city budget that will move $150 million from APD to other areas of public health and safety over the course of the next year. Canceled cadet classes, cuts to overtime, and the elimination of unfilled positions accounted for $20 million.

[End]

This is madness, brought to you by the Texas Democrat Party. It is not a coincidence that Austin has experienced a huge influx of immigrants from California over the last 30 years as it has become a hub for high-tech companies and jobs. It is any wonder, then, that this once-great Texas city is fast on its way to becoming a mirror image of San Francisco?

News you most definitely will not see on CNN or MSNBC. – The corrupt news media spent the early part of last week obsessing over a “recording” of President Trump’s sister that had been fed to them by Trump’s deranged niece, Mary Trump. In that recording, the supposed voice of Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, makes all kinds of disparaging remarks about the President.

The only problem is that the recording is fake. You don’t have to believe me, just take the word of Maryanne Trump Barry:

Oh.

The only appropriate response to this letter begins with the letter “F” and ends with “you.” – With President Trump planning to visit Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday, thus putting a spotlight on all the rampant destruction the city has suffered at the hands of Democrat Party-funded domestic terrorists over the past 10 days, communist Democrat Governor Tony Evers sent this nasty letter to the President, urging him to stay away:

Late Sunday, a White House press spokesman responded by saying,

The President himself has yet to respond, but no doubt will at some point today. The only proper response to send would be something along the lines of “I’ll be in Kenosha on Tuesday. You are welcome to join me if you’d like, but won’t be missed if you don’t.”

No doubt some of Trump’s advisors will urge him to accede to Evers’ wishes. He should ignore them. The nation must witness what the Democrat Party has done to Kenosha.

***UPDATE*** – President Trump responded to Evers’ craven letter this morning in the following tweet:

Glorious.

More De-classification to come. – During the course of his interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” on Sunday, stellar DNI John Ratcliffe told the host that he is working with prosecutor John Durham on the declassification of even more incriminating documents related to Spygate and Obamagate.

From a report at the Washington Examiner:

Ratcliffe, who has overseen the nation’s 17 intelligence agencies since taking over the role in May, shed a bit of light on how the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is assisting in the “investigation of the investigators” investigation during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures on Fox News and insisted he is working to ensure that any intelligence documents he releases don’t “prejudice” Durham’s inquiry.

“We’ve actually, for several months, been coordinating with his team of folks to make sure that he has access to all of the intelligence community documents that he needs,” Ratcliffe said of Durham. “He’s looking at the same, some of the same documents that I am, and so our work is running on parallel paths. Now, his is a criminal investigation, and he’s not sharing his findings or the work that he’s doing, but I’m coordinating with him to make sure that he has the intelligence documents that he needs to do his work, and what I don’t want to do is declassify something that might prejudice his work, so we’re going to have to coordinate as we go forward the completion of his work with my ability to declassify documents, and so we’ve communicated along those lines.”

[End]

Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The riots and violence raged on for a 96th consecutive night as communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler attempted to deflect the blame onto President Trump.

 

This local fake news reporter is horrified that the Portland police suddenly try to do their jobs:

Meanwhile, Antifa/BLM continue raising money from deluded dupes so that they can create more havoc in the days to come:

This the Portland the Democrat Party has wrought. It is the chaos they want to bring soon to your city. If you don’t want the chaos, stop voting for these creeps. It really is that simple.

That is all.

    Judicial Watch may have to wait for some FOIA for good reason? Maybe, if Ratcliff is telling the whole story, there are good reasons not to release certain pieces of information? That is assuming that there is a real prosecution going on, not just an enormous head-fake.

    Ratcliff is giving us reason to hope.

  2. Jimmy MacAfee - August 31, 2020

    CowardJoe, the gropeyfartystinkybrainless sissy won’t go to Kenosha. As I wrote before, he’s a groundhog, like Phil, waiting for a day when he won’t see his shadow and flee back to his burrow.

    President (and then-candidate) Trump has never shied away from talking with people, even those who oppose him. Unlike Obama, who surrounded himself with a surround-sound system so that he would only hear what he wanted to hear – another coward, like Punxsutawney Joe.

    Go back to your burrow, Joe. The sun is shining, and we don’t want you to pee yourself.

  3. Jimmy MacAfee - August 31, 2020

    Rand Paul authored the legislation to ban no-knock police raids. So what does the ANTIFA?BLM crowd do? They yell: “Say her name!”

    Right. And the name of the legislation he wrote?

    “Justice for Breonna Taylor Act”

    Yes, Leftists are stupid.

  4. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

    Ever’s letter is just political desperation. The Democrats know full well that Trump’s visit to Kenosha will be a yuuuge success (beyond being the right thing to do) in a state that is slipping away from them. Trump knows it too.

    1. Petunia5700 - August 31, 2020

      Note the misleading statement about Kyle the boy who shot two attackers in self-defense and tried to give himself up and had NOT crossed state lines but was in WI all day. At the very least, Evers and other dogs could reserve judgement on these cases.

      1. brian - August 31, 2020

        Communist don’t reserve judgement unless its one of their members. They want to convict Kyle in a public court, twitface etc, because facts don’t matter and you do not have a right to protect yourself.

        It hurts their criminal enterprise when people protect themselves and puts their violent supporters in needless risk of being shot by a patriot. /s

        Notice who these criminals always call for when one of their communist komrades gets hurt or their lights punched out… lol

        BIG differences between patriots and communist agitators. Kyle clearly was in defense mode and tried to surrender to the police immediately. The communist criminals always attack from behind and then skulk off quickly all the while trying to obscure their identity. Thx to 4chan for identifying the criminal in Portland.

  5. Jimmy MacAfee - August 31, 2020

    Best news of the day: Maryanne Trump Barry’s tweet. (Thanks, Dave! Totally made my day!)

    Especially her promise of a lawsuit against her niece. Defamation, fraud, conspiracy? Three torts and trials, tied into one! Or maybe each one handled separately – lots and lots of attorney’s fees for the dimwitted niece!

  6. Gregg - August 31, 2020

    Didn’t Elon Musk, earlier this year, say he was moving his auto manufacturing facility from the Oakland, CA area because it (CA regulations) was too oppressive and is relocating to Austin, TX? Smart move to leave California and move to Texas; but to Austin, of all places?

    I thought Musk was a smart and savvy businessman. Guess not.

    1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

      I think there are business advantages to Austin. As Dave says, it is a magnet for high-tech.

      1. brian - August 31, 2020

        Seems like high tech and casinos are a magnet for homelessness, crime, filth and destroyed lives.

        1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

          Usually it is cities with a high density of academic institutions that attract tech, since there is a lot of cross-pollination. That means money, and with Dems running things, all the parasites and ne-er-do-wells flock there.

      2. Gregg - August 31, 2020

        Third try – told I was “posting too fast – slow down”

        Point taken Phineas, but isn’t auto building largely a blue collar occupation? Who can afford to live in Austin/San Francisco on a (maybe) $20.00 per hour assembly job?

        Any ‘tech’ involved in manufacturing can easily be developed in the areas where so much caste ‘brilliance’ abounds but the actual nuts and bolts of the operation does very well in real America.

        There was a reason why Nissan built their auto assembly plant in the Smyrna/Murfreesboro area 30 miles SE of very blue and very costly Nashville. In fact, even before the Plandemic and the (relatively minor) Antifa unrest, the Nashville Mayor Stooper has kept his city mainly closed for ‘health’ reasons and is pushing a 34% property tax increase. The citizens revolted and there will be a binding referendum on the massive tax increase which will also amend the city charter to mandate future referendums on any tax increase over 2% per year.

        Fortunately we have a reasonable governor who is preventing the mayors of Memphis and Nashville from turning their cities into Seattle and Portland. Had the Dem gubernatorial candidate (a former mayor of Nashville) won, all bets would be off. Gov Lee (R), while not the best IMO, is showing measured competence; he won by 20%.

        1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

          Yes, and Tennessee is a very attractive state for businesses. I expect more of them to locate to Nashville.

          1. Gregg - August 31, 2020

            TN yes, Nashville proper, no.

    Just another day in DeBlasio’s paradise (video warning):

    1. brian - August 31, 2020

      Nobody doing nothing to help… and the big guy walking up from behind did what??? Stopped and stood there… unbelievable… its what big city mentality looks like right there… Pretty sure any of us small town red necks would have pasted this dirtball then held him until the police arrived.

      1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

        Yes, it always amazes me–they all stand around taking video with their phones so they can be the first to post it on-line.

        Awful behavior, and a striking example of social media crowd psychology. The modern version of Kitty Genovese.

    2. Jimmy MacAfee - August 31, 2020

      Same thing happened to me once when I was 11 or 12 – 16 year old (wearing clothes.)

      I want this effer in the video dead. It’s personal.

    3. Gregg - August 31, 2020

      Not that it should matter, but did this occur at 11 PM or 11 AM?

      If in the PM, everyone needs to be smarter and have situational awareness, and never travel alone anywhere in NYC especially at night.

      Not too bright on the part of the perp doing his crime on a well lit subway platform – must know he will never be charged or prosecuted by the commie DA even if he is caught.

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - August 31, 2020

        And they would never keep him in jail in any case, not in De Blowsio’s city.

  8. brian - August 31, 2020

    Well Oregon… heres your opportunity to start ridding yourself of the cancer that is the communist demoncrap blight thats taken your State from you.

    A long but well worth reading article explaining the dynamics of whats happening and the aftermath results of what will happen in the days, years, following.

    1. Gregg - September 1, 2020

      Victor Davis Hanson is a treasure. The read is excellent, but the comments are even more poignant about what the future portends regarding race relations.

  11. Silas - August 31, 2020

    So the fearless leader of Oregon has come out with a plan to deal with the rioters. I would venture to say that while it looks good on paper, it’s going to a flaming failure. And she’s still denying it’s antifa doing the damage.

    ” I will not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets.”

    A twofer for the guv. Paint a group as white supremacist and put the blame for the violence on them.

    Here’s a report on her statement

    https://www.myoregon.gov/2020/08/30/governor-kate-brown-announces-unified-law-enforcement-plan-to-protect-free-speech-bring-violence-to-an-end-in-portland/

    Worthless, lower than whale shit, demoncrat politician.

    Also notice that Portland will indemnify all the other law enforcement agencies. That’s because they all withdrew from a mutual aid agreement (I think it was two years ago) when Portland refused to do so when antifa started ramping up their shit. Portland also didn’t want to compensate them for their supplying personnel and support.

    It will be telling if the riots and chaos stop. But I’m betting it will just become spontaneous events. Pop up riots if you will, centered on their favorite targets and then they will scatter like rats when law enforcement shows up.

    1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

      No way it will stop. With the polling data, the time has come for finger-pointing and assessing blame. Despite the furious efforts of the media, it isn’t going to work for the Dems after the American people have watched this for nearly three months.

      1. Silas - August 31, 2020

        Yup! The train gathering has left the station and is gathering steam.

        (By the way, Phineas, I have been using the Ovation browser for my visits here lately. It spell checks. 😀 )

        1. Silas - August 31, 2020

          Grammar however is another thing.

        2. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

          Thanks, sounds like it was made for me….

  12. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

    Seems like a real quality individual:

    https://www.nationalistreview.net/2020/08/30/portland-shooter-allegedly-identified-by-4chan-this-is-the-killer-black-lives-matter-celebrated/

    If the Portland DA won’t bring charges against this creep, the feds should step in.

    1. Silas - August 31, 2020

      I becoming more inclined to believe the victim’s civil rights were violated. And the alleged murderer is not the only one liable in that matter.

  13. Gregg - August 31, 2020

    “Worthless, lower than whale shit, demoncrat politician.”

    More like she could walk under whale Schiff with a top hat.

    Hey, gov. Dingbat? where was this action three months ago? Now, just now, she is saying the DA will prosecute criminals, what a novel thought. Needs to be charges against him.

    Now that the polling is going against these “mostly peaceful demonstration” the funding will dry up and the, apart from a few flair-ups who still have fireworks left over, it will probably peter out.

    Naturally gov. Dingbat will blame Trump for his “vigilantes” and take credit for bringing everyone together in a kumbaya moment.

    I know I’m sold.

    1. Silas - August 31, 2020

      The dark money might dry up, the scum are self funding through a number of sources and using twatter to network them. I don’t see them giving up on the cause now, the momentum will have to be broken by a massive and decisive action and that won’t be coming from Wreck it Kate or Teddy Ruxcommie. No, it will have to be an adult who stops this and as Phineas stated in a previous post, that will happen in about two months or so.

      1. brian - August 31, 2020

        These political communist dirtballs can’t stop the riots now. Its out of their control. If they stepped in and said no more riots… the rioters would escalate and take it to them even more personally which means their entire messaging for the last few months will have been completely and utterly discredited. Their political death.

        It ain’t gonna stop, until its stopped… after the election.

  14. Melvin - August 31, 2020

    After 25 years, we sold our house and moved out of Austin a month ago. SUCKERS!!!!!

  15. Gregg - August 31, 2020

    Originally this was a response to Silas link to the Oregonian and his thoughts about his states communist governor.

    “Worthless, lower than whale shit, demoncrat politician.”

    More like she could walk under whale Schiff with a top hat.

    1. Gregg - August 31, 2020

      Sorry for the double post above, WP said I was “posting too quickly”

      Anyways, perhaps Silas, Phineas and Brian are right, the riots will continue to some degree or another until they are forcefully put down, either because they will eventually attack the wrong facility (Nike, Amazon), or the houses of the officials who are tacitly supporting them. They are apparently still going to be getting a lot of support from our domestic underground terrorists.

      The amazing thing is they are calling for Mayor Ted to resign AND defund the police. How can he do both? Hey idiots, if he were to resign he would have no authority to defund the police.

      Anyway, these mental midgets are going to eat their own in that the theoretical national support which may have been present at one point is/was a mile wide, but only an inch deep to begin with for their supposed cause of justice/police reform will quickly continue to erode.

      By jumping on the SJW cause, sports and outfits like Goodyear are done too.

      I just love the sign one of these young (no doubt college educated) yahoos was carrying somewhere (I believe Portland) over the weekend:

      “This Schiff is F***ing BullSchiff – And this BullSchiff is F***ed”

      It could have been the back side of a KARMA ROUNDHEELS/joe btfsplk campaign sign.

      Wow, where do I sign up to join that cause

    Great news. I didn’t expect it to go this way.

    1. brian - August 31, 2020

      “Flynn wins:”

      Not yet my friend, not yet. Given the judges performance so far I’m certain he has a few other ‘options’ to delay. Eg, set the dismissal date for mmmm…. Oct 30th, or appeal to the Supreme court, or some other sneaky dirtball maneuver.

      If he had ANY integrity he’d use the opportunity to save his reputation, only slightly, and dismiss the case immediately. But I suspect he’ll pull a sneaky shiff.

      1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

        I’ll retract that overstatement, but it was a ruling that I did not expect.

      2. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

        Ah, you are completely right, I misread it. Denial of mandamus to force Sullivan to dismiss. Well, I apologize.

      This isn’t just beating a dead horse, it’s digging up the horse from the grave to beat it.

      Adam Schiff is mentally ill and needs help. His moment of fame has passed him by and he doesn’t know it. He’ll now be relegated to the role as oddest looking facial features in Congress, replacing Henry ‘Pigman’ Waxman.

      1. Silas - August 31, 2020

        It’s all the poor fool has left. What will really be interesting is when the House flips back to Republican control. He will be lost, with no power to do more than spout off to the press with his lies and innuendo, but no prestigious title. Of course the press will add “former” to his old title to make it more impressive for the demoncrat faithful and try to his words more gravitas.

        1. Gregg - September 1, 2020

          In all likelihood he will still be the Intel Committee ranking member and the press will still give him a massive platform, if for no other reason he leaks HIS version of the ‘classified’ intel of which he HE will still have access. He and any other Dem leaker needs to be prosecuted for treason.

          Years ago, Senator Leaky (Depends) Leahy (D) Vermont was actually caught doing the same and all that happened to him was he was forced off the senate intel committee.

          CRIMES of TREASON need to be PROSECUTED.

    1. phineas gage - August 31, 2020

      That’s where the push will be, as well as election litigation and general chaos. Anything to prevent a definitive result.

      I think the wise guys in the DNC have already given up Biden as a lost cause.

      The good thing is that, from what I have seen, the Trump campaign is aggressively confronting and preparing for these tactics.

  22. The Einous - August 31, 2020

    I left ATX 20 years ago because of the hopeless liberal Shole it was becoming, then. Liberalism is a mental disorder and a sexually transmitted disease. Time for our patriots in Gonzales to come take ATX back. F you stooopid liberals. You don’t get to vote, losers.
