Tuesday News Roundup: AP Slams Cuomo and the Portland Riots Expand Again

The purge continues in Seattle. – The lone bright spot in Seattle’s city government, Police Chief Carmen Best, resigned yesterday, giving the communist Democrats on the city council and in the mayor’s office a victory as they consolidate their efforts to completely destroy that city.

Sadly, probably to preserve her pension, Chief Best  thanked worthless communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan for “her continuous support.” Best and Durkan clashed repeatedly during the June riots and the six-week-long CHAZ/CHOP atrocity, as Durkan steadfastly refused to allow the police department to use all the tools at its disposal to protect the citizens of the city.

Durkan and her fellow communist Democrats will now have the opportunity to hire a fellow Soros-funded lunatic to help them finish killing off the city’s police department. If you live in Seattle and have the means to move away from it, the time to do so is now.

When did Preacher Pete become a woman of color? – Imagine my surprise to get up this morning and see Pete Buttigeig trending on Twitter. We haven’t seen or heard from the former South Bend mayor in many weeks, since his Quixotic pursuit of the Democrat nomination came to an unceremonious end.

But suddenly, there he is, trending on Twitter amid speculation that his name has somehow made its way onto the list of possible running mates for Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee. Not that it would be surprising if Biden’s handlers decided to shift away from that promise that their addled candidate rashly made several months ago, given the fact that every one of the “women of color” we have seen vetted thus far would immediately become dead weight to the campaign.

But Preacher Pete? A pasty-white, 30-something gay guy from South Bend, where he is detested by the city’s Black community? That would be a radical shift, indeed.

But hey, it’s probably not about the VEEP slot at all. We should remember that while he was out making rash promises, Biden promised Mayor Pete a prominent role in his administration should he win the election. Biden will be announcing a proposed cabinet soon, and don’t be surprised if Preacher Pete’s name is penciled in as Secretary of State or Defense.

No, I’m not kidding.

Watch as President Trump, at his presser yesterday, lays out a laundry list of those known to be involved in the Obamagate scandal, including Susan Rice, who he refers to as a “potential liability” as a running mate for Biden:

Historic stuff.

Speaking of historic stuff, the President was rushed out of that press briefing earlier after a shooting took place outside of the White House grounds:

After he came back in, one idiot reporter asked him if he was “shaken” by the incident.

Trump responded: “Do I look shaken to you?” and then changed the subject to the booming stock market. Because that’s what a boss does.

Hilarious.

Holy cow, a random act of actual journalism just happened at the Associated Press! – I’m not kidding, y’all. Somehow, the Democrat toady editors at AP failed to catch an actual report about how Andrew Cuomo’s government is severely under-counting the number of elderly folks his policies have managed to kill in that state’s nursing home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the AP story:

New York’s true nursing home death toll cloaked in secrecy

NEW YORK (AP) — Riverdale Nursing Home in the Bronx appears, on paper, to have escaped the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, with an official state count of just four deaths in its 146-bed facility.

The truth, according to the home, is far worse: 21 dead, most transported to hospitals before they succumbed.

“It was a cascading effect,” administrator Emil Fuzayov recalled. “One after the other.”

New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.

That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600. But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.

“That’s a problem, bro,” state Sen. Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, told New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker during a legislative hearing on nursing homes earlier this month. “It seems, sir, that in this case you are choosing to define it differently so that you can look better.”

How big a difference could it make? Since May, federal regulators have required nursing homes to submit data on coronavirus deaths each week, whether or not residents died in the facility or at a hospital. Because the requirement came after the height of New York’s outbreak, the available data is relatively small. According to the federal data, roughly a fifth of the state’s homes reported resident deaths from early June to mid July — a tally of 323 dead, 65 percent higher than the state’s count of 195 during that time period.

[End]

Make no mistake about it: Cuomo’s policy decisions led directly to the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers since March. And he knew that would be the result when the made the choices. He is very likely the single most prolific mass murderer in American history.

Given the corrupt news media’s massive campaign to cover for the Governor in hopes he might replace Biden at the party’s convention next week, it is frankly stunning that the AP would run this actual piece of real journalism now. It could only happen if the AP editors got a signal from the DNC that the Cuomo boomlet is over.

For the Democrats, it now appears that it will be Biden or bust in 2020. You should bet on bust.

 

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – More fun and games last night as the communist Democrat-sponsored rioters expanded their stage of operations again, this time to include the city’s North Police Precinct Building in its attacks:

And the revolving door of communist Portland-style “justice” continues to send the arrested rioters right back onto the streets to riot some more:

And so it goes. It’s becoming repetitive, but it must be said again: This rioting will continue to become increasingly violent and keep spreading throughout the city until someone outside of the communist Democrat Party – which sponsors and pays for the riots – steps in to stop them.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    Regarding Preacher Pete,
    I have always thought that his last name sounded like the only “office” he would truly be qualified for.

  2. jiminhouston - August 11, 2020

    With Petey, you get the woman, just not the color!

    1. Gregg - August 11, 2020

      Only if he is the catcher and not the pitcher, or the receiver and not the quarterback.

      And like so many other Dems, blackface makeup could solve that problem,

  3. Meaner Than A Rattler - August 11, 2020

    The Final Solution to the deplorables question can be solved with the abolition of the police.
    The esteemed party member comrade at AP will be re-educated pronto for even questioning the magnificence of kommissar Cuomo.
    NYC loved ones elders died at the death camps known as nursing homes?
    A few eggs have to be broken on the road to utopia. Forward!
    The glorious people’s republic of Portland hasn’t burned to the ground yet?
    What’s the hold up.

  4. Doug - August 11, 2020

    These democrats really are willing to let their city totally burn in the hopes that Trump sends in the Army to quell the violence. I really doubt that is in his plans is their strategy is backfiring bigly, but it is interesting to see them continue their failed strategy as it is likely even the leftist morons in their cities have to be disturbed by the unrest they are causing.

  5. stevekerp - August 11, 2020

    Still no arrests for treason. Why not??

    1. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

      You do understand that prosecuting a presidential coup involving a massive conspiracy stretching across many parts of the federal government is not the same as picking a thug up off the street, right?

      The answer to your question is either that the final preparation are being made to issue formal indictments, or that no action will be taken. We will know soon enough. Until then, no one, including all the inspired naysayers here, has any clue.

      1. stevekerp - August 12, 2020

        Benedict Arnold plotted with Andre to betray the entire country and it didn’t take this long. You’re saying the bigger the conspiracy, the longer it takes. I say not. Criminals are arrested, and as more criminals are unearthed, they are arrested. Keep digging and keep arresting. You don’t wait until every single miscreant has been identified and every mis-deed has been catalogued. That’s insane – it would take forever and at the end of the day, all the witnesses and treasonous snakes have died or escaped, or elected their buddies who drop the investigation. I think you are right on two counts: 1) no action will be taken, and 2) we will know soon enough.

  6. Ben Colder - August 11, 2020

    Let them tear the city down for all I care only thing out there is communists and more communists let them have it see how well they do with their wonderful utopian paradise.Only thing is no out side help of any kind see how long they last.Might be worth it to the rest of the country to see how well the communist take care of things.

  7. Silas - August 11, 2020

    Well, Seattle has commmited economic suicide. Even the socialist owned businesses there will packing up and moving out. The small businesses that thrived on tourism and said businesses will die. The downtown core, which was already suffering a homeless and crime surge will resemble a third world city. Those living in apartments will flee to the suburbs when this happens.
    Property owners will let their buildings burn to collect the insurance money and then the fall will be complete. The socialist mayor and city council will be standing on the scorched earth and ashes of a once fair city and will ahve nobody to balme save themselves.

    1. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

      The Seattle council vote was 7-1; the lone opposing vote was a radical communist who thought the defunding wasn’t extensive enough.

      Seattle was a thriving city, but it has now taken the Detroit expressway.

      1. Silas - August 11, 2020

        At the rate Seattle is going, they will pass Detroit on the inside lane.

    1. Silas - August 11, 2020

      Odds on Walking Eagle suddenly becoming ill with the ‘rona just days before she’s due in court?

    Just in case your blood has cooled off a little, this will get it boiling again.

  10. adrian - August 11, 2020

    Yep…pretty much figured Omar would avoid any prosecution. The legal system is a ‘right in your face’ double set of laws for all Dems, Commies and elites. They don’t give a crap about whether us peons see it or not. They will do as they please. So what is going to change this? Nothing….we are screwed.

  11. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    No way Buttigieg is the VP pick, not if Biden has any hope of all at maintaining black support.

    And as was discussed last week, there is no feasible way for the Dems to switch candidates right now. They are going into the election with the first presidential candidate in history that is clearly suffering from dementia. If 2020 wasn’t real, it would be a surrealist novel.

    1. carlosdangler - August 11, 2020

      You’re right, p.g.!
      If it was a novel I wouldn’t read it because it has no basis in reality unless half the population was either morons or so high on drugs they didn’t care…………. Oh, wait….

  12. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    The reason that Trump was able to state the long list of traitors at his press conference is because of a question from the OAN reporter. Not a single other ‘journalist’ in the room has the slightest interest in inquiring about the greatest political scandal in the history of our nation.

    1. brian - August 11, 2020

      Hence no further followup questions from the other ‘reporters’

  13. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    If Trump wins, one of the first orders of business in the new year for Barr and company should be the appointment of a federal prosecutor to look into Cuomo and his criminal actions.

    The man should be doing life in federal prison.

  14. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    This is where we are going, don’t doubt it:

    https://twitter.com/ThatOldSheepDog/status/1293068454132678656

    The major media have yet to mention it at all.

    1. Silas - August 11, 2020

      If the situation were reversed it’d be full on 24/7. Such a heinous crime against a child and the bastards won’t even do a 15 second mention. Same as when a black on black murder of a child occurs. Nary a peep. I have a solution for all of them, but I’d be the first to be questioned when the shit started happening.

  15. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    So now the VP rumor is Michelle Obama. At this point, who would be surprised?

    1. Silas - August 11, 2020

      Right now they could nominate a ham sandwich for veep and it wouldn’t surprise me.

      1. brian - August 11, 2020

        They just did…

        ooppsss… it was on white bread…. that didn’t last long

  16. Silas - August 11, 2020

    I believe that the longer President Trump is in office, the more deranged all the demoncrats and their propaganda toadies become. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Brian Stelter,the pugnacious potatoe of CNN!

  17. brian - August 11, 2020

    Off topic but metals are dropping like a stone… what happened today/ last night???

    1. Silas - August 11, 2020

      I’ve quit watching the markets and wondering why. A gnat could fart in deepest Africa and the markets will drop.

      1. brian - August 11, 2020

        Generally metals are pretty stable and bounce around very little. When stocks are going up metals usually change little. When stocks crash or theres uncertainty in, say the Federal Reserve then metals will climb. When they drop like this it generally signals a strong confidence in future policies…

        I hope it metals keep dropping for a while yet… I suspect they’ll drop considerably knowing Trump will continue in office and the markets take off again. So save your pennies because metals will be more affordable soon enough.

        1. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

          Good observation–the markets, just like the sharps in Vegas, usually have an accurate idea of where things are heading.

  18. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms.

    Saints alive! Are we going to have fun with this!

    Kamala Harris for veep!

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/joe-biden-picks-kamala-harris-as-his-running-mate?utm_source=whatfinger

  20. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    So the choice is Kamala

    I’ll admit I was wrong. I also say that this is a perfectly awful selection, including her grotesque plastic surgery.

    1. Silas - August 11, 2020

      And Team Trump isn’t a bunch of let’s play nice with the demoncrats when comes to skelletons in the closet. And her public and private history is rife with them.

      And I suspect the radio silence from the Obama coup cabal is telling.

    2. Gregg - August 11, 2020

      “…that this is a perfectly awful selection,…

      They were all perfectly awful selections Phineas. Not one brings anything to the electoral map table, all have massive skeletons in their closets.

      Al least now Rice et al is no longer “immune” from being prosecuted as part of the Obamagate probe, so that is good news.

      Now what Pence must do is review the takedown of Senator Round Heels by the Hawaiian Heroine in the debates.

  21. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    This is supposed to energize the base and maintain the black vote?

    If anything, her political skills are worse than Hillary.

  22. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    The media will give her a pass, but the Trump campaign should have great fun creating ads with the footage of her (accurately) calling Biden a segregationist.

    1. Silas - August 11, 2020

      That and many other delicacies will served up my friend. Many.

  23. Rick O'Shay - August 11, 2020

    I guess bygones be bygones.

  24. phineas gage - August 11, 2020

    Some are commenting, I think accurately, that this is not about winning in 2020 so much as it is about political power in the party after 2020.

    It also is a kiss-off to the radical Left. The power-brokers in the DNC are acknowledging reality and positioning themselves for what comes after.

  25. Stuartswede - August 11, 2020

    Glad the Demonrats at least considered aesthetics. Call me shallow, but Sooooo glad I don’t have to look at the unmasked faces of Abrams, Michael O, Bass face or Socialoprah for the next 3 months.

    1. Gregg - August 11, 2020

      You think Round heels is aesthetically pleasing? Maybe compared to the others you have mentioned, but they are all ugly people both inside and out.

      1. Stuartswede - August 11, 2020

        Compared to the others, absolutely, and diminishes their chance of winning even more.

  26. brian - August 11, 2020

    Well there it is…. Wonder how many days now until she accidentally falls and strikes her head fatally on her cell bunk, and catches fire spontaneously then then does a self dis-articulation and goes completely to pieces. With zero evidence of foul play, obviously….
