Wednesday News Roundup: Portland DA Greenlights Endless Riots and Biden’s Missed Opportunity

Man, this must be headline news all over the country. – Surely, this horrific story of a 25 year-old man murdering a neighbor’s 5 year-old boy in cold blood as the boy’s 7 and 8 year-old sisters looked on is the hourly lead subject of every panel discussion on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, right?

Well, right? Oh, wait, I forgot that we are in America, where nothing that doesn’t fit the prevailing narrative dictated by the DNC and front groups for George Soros gets reported. So we have to go to a media outlet based in London, England to find any detailed coverage of it.

From a piece at the Daily Mail:

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening.

Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy’s father’s house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head.

Hinnant’s seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL.

Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random. Neighbors claim he had dinner with Hinnant’s father Austin on Friday and had been over at the house earlier on Sunday.

The motive for the killing is still under investigation, but a GoFundMe established by a family member says that the young boy rode into Sessoms’ yard.

Darius Sessoms, 25, was charged on Monday with the murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant in North Carolina

[End]

The little boy who was killed, Cannon Hinnant, was white.

You can be certain that if the racial profiles of the killer and victim were reversed, we would not have to look to foreign news outlets for coverage of the murder. In fact, we would be looking at wall-to-wall, 24-hour coverage of the riots led by Democrat-sponsored domestic terrorists groups taking place in every communist Democrat-run city in America.

America’s news media is gutter-trash.

The New York Post got its cover right today:

It is the communist Democrat Party these days, after all.

It’s appropriate to note at this time that President Donald Trump’s support for prison/sentencing reform makes this video of Tulsi Gabbard’s brilliant takedown of Kamala Harris and her record perfectly fair game for Trump campaign ads:

Biden’s co-sponsorship of the 1994 Clinton crime bill makes this comparison perfectly appropriate as well:

Man, this video about Biden’s long history of public racist statements is brutal…and 100% true:

But of course the mainstream, corrupt media coverage of yesterday’s announcement is predictably fawning and celebratory of Biden’s “wisdom” in making a pick that his staff and the DNC in fact made for him. So the communist Democrat ticket will get a little boost in the polls over the next few days, and another boost next week as the Democrat activists in the media slobber all over every word that is said.

But that boost will be very short-lived, an illusion that will rapidly peel away under the light of truth and the reality of the real records of the two corrupt and venal individuals who make up the ticket.

Not that the Biden handlers had much choice here: Once the candidate had idiotically painted himself into this “woman of color” requirement for a running mate, his options were extremely limited and ultimately whittled down to a decision between Harris and Susan Rice, who has the personal appeal of an over-ripe cantaloupe. All of the other potential choices essentially disqualified themselves, either by an utter lack of qualifications (Stacey Abrams) or by a history of supporting communist dictators that was too transparent for even many Democrats to stomach (Karen Bass).

The one name that appeared on the Biden VEEP list early on that disappeared from it without any real public discussion was that of Florida Congresswoman Val Demings. If the Biden handlers wanted to choose a “law and order” candidate to fill out the ticket, well, Demings was the Chief of Police in Orlando for a decade, and compiled a very respectable record in that role. You didn’t have to agree with anything she said during the impeachment hearings last year to recognize that Demings is tough, composed and an impressive presence on a national stage. She is also really adept at parroting the daily narrative.

But hey, these are communist Democrats, so maybe having a record that is actually respectable became a disqualifier for her. Sounds about right.

All in all, the choice of Harris seems like a real missed opportunity for the Biden handlers. As I pointed out yesterday, she adds nothing of any substance to the campaign, does not help Biden in a single state, and comes in loaded down with an enormous amount of personal baggage.

Cool.

Meanwhile, in Chicago… – The head Black Lives Matters organizer in Chi-town actually equated the looting of high-end stores on Chicago’s Magic Mile, as well as the local Target and Nike outlets, to “reparations” on Tuesday.

I swear I do not make this stuff up:

“I don’t care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike because that makes sure that that person eats. That makes sure that that person has clothes,” Atkins said, according to NBC Chicago.

That’s reparations. That is reparations. Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance. They’re going to get their money back. My people aren’t getting anything.”

[End]

Yes, truly, nothing says “social justice” like a new handbag from Gucci. And besides, businesses have insurance, and insurance is free, right?

Holy crap.

In Portland, the rioting will continue at least until the next local elections… – What is the point of policing the riots and making arrests when the local DA who refuses to prosecute the criminals?

This statement by the communist Democrat DA is simply a green light for the rioters to continue to do anything they want without worrying about consequences. Again, if you live in Portland and have the means to move somewhere, anywhere else (well, except to any other big city run by communist Democrats, that is), now is the time to do so, because things are only going to keep going downhill from here.

More coverage of last night’s 76th straight day of riots by real journalist Andy Ngo:

And then there’s this:

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks. Our news media is rank, smelly gutter trash.

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.

  1. Gregg - August 12, 2020

    Referring to yesterday’s column about the “All-Facially Reconstructed Ticket”:

    There will be a finding somewhere down the line about what Botox and hair plugs (not to mention long term effects of legalized “recreational/medical” marijuana smoking) does to the brain.

    GO-JO(e) Brain Biden, Senator Round Heels, and Nancy Klink will be the poster-children that will confirm those findings…

  2. Gregg - August 12, 2020

    Blacks are 12-13% of the population, and with the male half eliminated, that left the Biden Campaign – not Biden – with less than 7% of the population from which to select the best, most qualified candidate. He effectively eliminated 15/16s of the nation’s population. Senator Round Heels is nothing more than a pandering Affirmative Action pick, and she is not even an American of African descent to boot!

    Speaking of Black/Minority Privilege via Affirmative Action, which is in fact real: I have heard little from anyone countering BLM’s White Privilege argument with Affirmative Action. AA is nothing more than reverse discrimination. How does two wrongs make a right?

    It is said that a (potential) president’s first executive action/appointment is his/her VP pick. Well this ‘pick’ by the Biden Campaign is his first and hopefully only executive decision as a (potential) president. It is a bomb, for all the reasons Dave mentioned.

    Regarding Round Heels’ former paramour/mentor recommending she decline the offer: I guess her ego was just too great for her to be GO-JO(e) Brain Biden’s #2 (in every sense of the word) to decline the offer.

    Willie Brown may well be correct. Going back a hundred years from memory, I can’t remember anyone gaining any notoriety from being a losing, or even being a winning vice president, except of course the winning vice president occasionally ascends to the presidency: Coolidge, Truman, LBJ, Ford, and Bush the first being the winning examples. With the exception of Dole in 1976, every other losing VP has faded into oblivion. For example, who was Nixon’s 1960 VP; Goldwater’s VP; Humphrey’s VP; McGovern’s VP; Ford’s VP; Mondale’s’ VP; Bush’s VP; Dole’s VP; Clinton’s VP; Gore’s VP; Kerry’s VP; McCain’s’ VP; Romney’s VP and Hillary’s VP?

    Again, virtually every losing VP candidate (Dole excepted, he later became the senate majority leader in 1981 and 1995) either faded into oblivion, was destroyed (Quale and Palin in particular), resumed their elective career with very little (Biden level) achievement, or in Gore’s case, he launched a very fraudulent, but unfortunately personally successful, Global Warming/Climate Change money laundering industry.

    Losing VP candidate = Loser. Senator Round Heels fits that bill perfectly.

    ***

    Mr. Barr, Mr. Durham, you many now resume your investigation/prosecution of Susan Rice and the Obamagate cartel.

    Come to think of it, that is probably as good a reason as any as to why the head honchos at the Democratic Party anointed GO-JO(e) Brain Biden – to protect him and, by extension, ‘the One’ from being investigated…

    ‘The One’ and his camp can’t be happy, so maybe, just maybe, there is a little ‘independence’ of thought in the otherwise “monolithic” Dem Party

    1. Stuartswede - August 12, 2020

      Yes we need Mr. Barr to quickly raise it!

      And hat tip to Mr. Gage for the “Tank Abrams” caricature. Except it keeps popping into my mind’s eye.

      1. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

        That is not original to me, but I did like it. A perfect fit, you might say.

  3. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

    The problem with moving out of the communist cities is that, once the cities are destroyed, the Democrat zombies will lurch outwards as well, bringing their same political behaviors with them.

    It will be an expanding zone, spiraling outwards.

    I would say if you get out, get way, way out–as all the hippie-dippies used to say back in the day.

    1. Stuartswede - August 12, 2020

      The good thing about spiraling outwards is that like ripples in a pond, the energy is rapidly dissipated. More sanity resides in suburbia.

    2. Jonesy - August 12, 2020

      It will have to stop somewhere, and I think that will depend on the people of suburbia and the local prosecutors. In Portland and Seattle, there is no one pushing back and antifa won’t be charged or do any jail time so their ranks don’t diminish through attrition. I think you’ll see more folks start fighting back like in Colorado. I still believe things are going to continue to escalate up to and through the election – more of antifa are showing up armed now, and I think we’ll see more shootings and maybe even a few gun battles with residents. Prepare now.

      1. Jonesy - August 12, 2020

        An example, but kind of in reverse….3% miltitas to hold a rally, and the all black NFAC, may show up to counter protest. Of course this article says all of the 3% miltias are white and implies they are racist.

        https://www.ajc.com/news/stone-mountain-braces-for-another-armed-protest/YCO2G6COUVACFLAAM5LYYHTODM/

      2. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

        I’m not talking about violence, I’m referring to their political behaviors (voting in the same communist crowd as before).

        1. Jonesy - August 12, 2020

          That certainly is true. There are 2 subsets of those people…the ones who belong to organized groups who want to get footholds in new places with liberal policies, and then those witless ones who get fed up with high taxes/crime etc, then move to a better area and fail to change their voting habits.

      3. Silas - August 12, 2020

        With the Multnohmah County DA saying he won’t prosecute felony crimes it’s game over. As the rioters continue to escalate more average citizens will become increasingly frightened and the next logical phase will be shootings. If the DA is stupid enough to try and prosecute those defending their familys and their homes (and he probably is) I suspect the lawsuits will be epic. I for one would sue him, the mayor, the city council and the governor. Then I would seek to have it made a class action lawsuit . It’ll probably take an outside legal team to do it. I don’t know if any local attorney has the guts to do it.

        1. brian - August 12, 2020

          Sadly they are setting the stage for this…. You can bet that the DA will try to throw the book and shelving at whomever has the audacity to defend themselves and property.

          Its late in the game but its time to prepare, if you haven’t already, to either defend or leave. When a public prosecutor broadcasts they will not enforce any violent crime laws the obvious is that things are going to get very bad. So get out now or be mentally prepared to shoot when they come thru the door uninvited.

          Its a war

  4. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

    I’d like to know which Democrat power broker group pushed Kamala Harris. I really doubt it was the Obama camp. Some progressive wing wants to advance her, she couldn’t win on her own in the primaries, so this is how they are positioning her for 2024. I think it might be the Pelosi wing.

    1. brian - August 12, 2020

      IMO… She won’t be a candidate for 2024. I think she’s a complete throw away candidate. The power brokrs know sniffer joe cannot win, period. They know that kamel is a no show because of the withering trouncing she took from Tulsi. Kamel brings in less than nothing to the game and has far to much spoilage to be able to mount an effective voter image campaign to be electable.

      I just think the long game is to gain control the House and Senate first. Then they have four years to find and groom a Presidential and VP candidates that could have a chance. They’re hoping to battle a Cruz or Pence at the end and will plan accordingly.

    2. Silas - August 12, 2020

      Their polling has already given them the bad news. She was the only choice left that wouldn’t have made it catastrophic. When Kamala Harris is the “safe” choice, you know they are flailing
      around.

      As you and others have pointed out, the demoncrats will be focusing all their money and election fraud on trying to take the House and Senate. But I think if the turnout for the Prresident is big as
      we think it will be, then there should be a few more seats in each going red as well.

  5. Doug - August 12, 2020

    That shooting was not even headlines here in NC. I somewhat understand though….the news of a dog biting man is not really news, only when a man bites a dog is it news. If they were to report every shooting by a “diverse” person such as this then the news could never get to Trump bashing.

    1. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

      The execution of a five-year old child would seem to be an exception to that rule.

  6. Jay Whitcraft - August 12, 2020

    I have an idea. Let’s “cancel” the WaPo and the NYT. Both papers are totally useless, in the case of the WaPo, we can’t run it out of money, but what we can do is run both of them out of influence by not responding to them or repeating anything they write. Quit treating them as if they are important. In the case of the shot 5 year old, only repeat what is actually reported by real news outlets. Let’s use. Their tactics against them. Jay

  7. Howie Longfellow - August 12, 2020

    These are just the birthing pains. You ain’t seen nothing yet. Decades of Marxist indoctrination and enslavement of mush minds with appetites and distractions are now bearing their bitter poisonous fruit.
    Outside of some www pages and Tucker on teevee most people are oblivious and about to get gob smacked by reality.
    It isn’t complicated to pick up a history book and learn that there will be no free easy living everyone is equal utopia.
    There will always be people who want more and who want to be more equal than others.
    Interesting times are a curse and not a blessing.

  8. adrian - August 12, 2020

    Other than doing ‘Willie’s Willie’, Kamel was a complete fraud as California AG. Raiding the home of the fellow that took the video of Planned Parent Hood’s selling of baby parts by 11 of her agents and then having her good buddy Jerry Brown make it a crime to secretly record these murderer’s activities was just a small part of her agenda….oh, and her laughing about smoking weed when she put lot’s of people in jail for doing the same thing….just a couple of her insane actions as AG. The same old, same old when it comes to these Democommies

  9. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

    Radical Dems, keeping it classy (since it is all about the children….):

      Poor little guy…that’s very sad. But let’s face it, Leftists kill them before they even have a chance at life with their abortions at will. Who knows what children that have been aborted would have grown up to be in life?

    check the box Silas, check the box

    1. brian - August 12, 2020

      I mentioned the other day wondering how long it will be before she falls and fatally strikes her head on her cot, then spontaneously combusts and completely self disaticulates moments after all the cameras mysteriously go blank and all the guards are napping. Which then after an intensive investigation will come up as a simple accident with not a scintilla of evidence suggesting foul play.

      1. Silas - August 12, 2020

        From the looks of it, her attorneys are looking for just that. They want her put into the general population. A socialite like her will last two, three days at most.

  13. Gregg - August 12, 2020

    If that was my neighbor and my child was murdered like that by him, he had better hope he is kept protected in jail, because I would plant him at the first opportunity. End of story.

    1. Silas - August 12, 2020

      Yup. And they’d never find the body.

    2. brian - August 12, 2020

      They’d find me standing over his corpse with the gun still smoking…

      Long story short, my daughter was attacked. Cops told me they were looking for him and I told them I was too… They went to the dirtballs family and told them a very angry white guy was on the hunt and he’d best turn himself in. He did, to my disappointment, with the cops wanting to charge me with a weapons offense, a bat, and threatening to harm a person.

      Yeah… this guy would be fertilizer.

    3. Silas - August 12, 2020

      What really sucks is you can bet a dollar for a donut the defense will be “temporary insanity”.

      1. brian - August 12, 2020

        My defense would be… “I was protesting peacefully”

    1. Gregg - August 12, 2020

      I’m not terribly religious, and certainly no theologian, but I just don’t see how anyone with sense is a contributing member of the Democratic Party or the Catholic Church – especially with this Pope and the long history of their many ‘leaders’ sexual offenses and their money grubbing guilt ridden cultist “religion” or the radical corruptocrats who are, and have been for years, the face of the Democratic Party.

      If some Catholic or Democrat is offended by my sixty years of observation, too bad, I just call it like I see it.

      All the “GOOD” cops, the “GOOD” teachers, the GOOD Government Bureaucrats, the “GOOD” Catholics, and the “GOOD” Democrats had better figure out which side of GOOD or EVIL they want to be on and vote the right way from here on out. I understand it is tough to abandoned a cause or idea or ideal that has been a part of your life for years or a lifetime, but it is time for all good people to come to the aid of America and stop letting their ‘leaders’ surreptitiously and now overtly destroy the greatest country in history,

    The urban flight begins, and not just from NYC:

    https://nypost.com/2020/08/08/nyc-moms-fleeing-upper-west-side-amid-crime-and-chaos/

    Note in the article it is almost all women who don’t feel safe and secure. I wonder why?

    I further wonder how many of these women are going to be voting for Biden/Harris to bring more of this on steroids.

    Ace argues that American cities are dying and this is the beginning of the one of the most significant sociocultural shifts in decades, if not centuries ,in this country.

    1. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

      And also, how many of these same women voted for DeBlasio and his ilk? All because they wanted to feel compassionate.

      It’s hard to have any compassion for them.

      1. Gregg - August 12, 2020

        I know I don’t and I never will, as I have dealt with enough know-it-all yet know-nothing “Karen” (one of whom was named Karen) types in my lifetime. In nature, stupidity is a crime, usually punishable by death; it should be a capital crime in the human realm too.

  15. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

    Just look at that massive boisterous crowd to see Biden and his new running mate:

    https://twitter.com/jeneps/status/1293633791068704773

    The excitement and enthusiasm is palpable….

    1. Gregg - August 12, 2020

      The tweets at your link were funny. Since I don’t tweet I’ll say my thought here. There are more people, including the players, at stadiums and arenas then were at Tweedle dee and Tweetle dumb’s “kickoff” rally.

      ***

      Some people are saying Senator Round Heels is being primed for a 2024 run. As I have written here recently, the losing VP candidates always fade away into oblivion (Dole excepted), so let Round Heels have her 15 minutes of fame…

      I just wish she (and all politicians) had to give up their current political position when they choose to run for a different office. Even when she loses, CA and America will be saddled with her untill at least 2023, if not for life what with California being California.

  16. phineas gage - August 12, 2020

    They aren’t even trying to pretend anymore:

    https://twitter.com/AndrewKerrNC/status/1293509275277570048

    This is actually a very good thing. It occurs to me that three of the main drivers of cultural takeover by the Left–traditional media, Hollywood movies, and sports–are all either dying or killing themselves in the age of covid and Trump.

    Social media and academia remain immune to their own venom.
