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

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:

Image

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.

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.

Monday News Roundup: Portland Rioting Spreads to Seattle and Chicago and William Barr Slams the Left

Talk about a lack of self-awareness… – Watch below as Brian Stelter proves that he is in fact the single most clueless individual working in the corrupt news media today:

Obviously, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CBS, ABC and NBC have all existed for the last 5 years solely to tear down Donald Trump. Yes, they have been miserable failures in that pursuit, but the effort has been ubiquitous and undeniable.

If Brian Stelter did not already exist, no one in their right mind could ever dream of making him up.

This happened on Sunday… – Lindsey Graham appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo yesterday, waving around newly declassifed documents and claiming they show “new criminality” on the part of the FBI:

In rolling out these newly-declassified documents, Graham told Bartiromo that he had been trying to obtain them from the FBI “for two years,” and he thanked Attorney General William Barr for helping him bust them loose from the FBI’s grip. Notably, he did not also thank Christopher Wray.

Just as a reminder, the Director of the FBI for the last two years has not been James Comey, but the worthless apparatchik Mr. Wray. Sen. Graham said he was going to “write a letter” to Wray demanding he identify the person within the FBI who gave the Senate Intel Committee this utterly false briefing about the veracity of the Steele Dossier. Maybe he’ll get an answer sometime in 2022.

Maybe.

You should get ready for a very, very interesting week. – Yes, every week is “interesting” these days, but I’m guessing that this particular week is going to be more interesting than most. Obviously we will see a week-long conflict between the Trump Administration and congress over the President’s weekend executive orders, as well as lawsuits being filed against those orders by communist Democrat interests before friendly Obama judges.

But I think it’s going to get much more interesting than that. Here is one reason why: Attorney General William Barr appeared last night with Mark Levin on Fox News, and made his most inflammatory remarks yet about the communist Democrats and the political left in general.

Here are some quotes from a piece at Fox News:

“They’re not interested in compromise,” Barr told host Mark Levin. “They’re not interested in [a] dialectic exchange of views. They’re interested in total victory … It’s a substitute for religion.

“They view their political opponents as evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia that they’re trying to reach, and that’s what gives the intensity to the partisan feelings that people feel today, because for them, this pilgrimage we’re all on is a political pilgrimage. Everything is reduced to politics for people who don’t have that perspective.”

Barr theorized that the left “really represents a Rousseauian Revolutionary Party that believes in tearing down the system, that what’s wrong about America today all has to do with the institutions we have and we have to tear them down.”

“I said during my hearing: ‘Can any of you just come out and say it’s not OK to burn down federal courthouses?’ I mean, they talk about the rule of law. They talk about the importance of the federal legal system to protection of civil rights. Well, the heart of that is our court system. And they’re not willing, not one of them piped up to say, ‘No, it’s not OK to be burning down federal courts.'”

A few Democratic lawmakers, Barr suggested, “are true believers” who are “essentially revolutionary in their outlook” and “believe in tearing down the system.

“But many of them are just cowards   and are afraid from, you know, about a challenge from the left. So for them, it’s careerism.”

[End]

These are not the comments from an Attorney General who is interested in working cooperatively with Democrats in congress and outside of it. These are the comments of an Attorney General who is now on a war footing and is ready to take it to an enemy.

Glad to see it.

Welcome to the party, Pal. – Also of note is this series of tweets from GOP Sen. Ron Johson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Take a look:

Hey, does it seem to you as if Sen. Johnson might have finally woken up and realized that the true enemy to the United States of America is not some external threat like China or Russia, but the communist Democrat Party right here in the U.S.? Does it seem like maybe, just maybe, Sen. Johnson is finally ready to quit referring to seditious scumbags like Richard Blumenthal as his “friend” or “colleague”?

Because it sure seems that way to me.

This week is going to be very, very interesting.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The revolving door continues in Portland, as even the most violent Antifa/BLM Democrat sponsored rioters are arrested and then immediately released to go back on the streets thanks a huge fund providing pro bono legal support:

Ngo continues to blame all of this on Antifa, but note the BLM clenched fist on the sign that appears in this video:

Again, it is completely wrong to draw a distinction between Antifa and BLM. Both are Marxist, Soros-funded domestic terrorist groups that are sponsored by the Democrat Party. Both will ultimately have to be dealt with very violently or this chaos will only continue to grow.

In fact, it’s already escalating again. Emboldened by the fact that the communist Democrats in Oregon refuse to deal effectively with the Portland rioters, Ngo notes that fellow terrorists in Seattle and Chicago are ramping up the violence in those cities now:

None of this is really complicated, folks. We simply must as a society identify who and what these terrorists are with clear eyes and deal with them as we have dealt with radical Islamic terrorists for the last 20 years. If we don’t, then they will win. It really is that simple.

By the way, have you noticed that you have not heard a word about any Islamic terrorist activity in the U.S. since these Antifa/BLM riots got started? Ask yourself why that would be the case. The logical answer is kind of frightening.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Portland Riots Get Worse and Fauci Reveals the Truth About a Vaccine

Those loud noises you hear are the sounds of climate alarmist heads exploding. – In his statement rolling out his executive orders on Saturday, President Donald Trump (I till never tire of typing those three glorious words) had the following to say about the “Green New Deal” and its juvenile sponsor, AOC:

“They want to raise everybody’s taxes, everybody, and they want to do the Green New Deal, which will decimate our country and decimate,” Trump said during a press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday.

“It’s ridiculous, it’s childish. I actually say the Green New Deal is childish. It’s for children, it’s not for adults,” he said, without referring by name to the policy’s key architect, New York Democrat Ocasio-Cortez.

[End]

Fact Check: He’s right.

The “Green New Deal” is in fact a childish and un-serious document, a series of socialist/communist policy proposals from a segment of our society that lives in a fanstasy world and wants to force the rest of us to either live there with them, or – preferably to them – die. Make no mistake about it, these people hate you and would much rather you were dead.

Thanks to President Trump for reminding everyone of that reality.

Speaking of reminders… – here is what societal menace Anthony Fauci had to say about the stupidity of wearing masks back in March:

“Right now, people should not be wearing m…there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet. But it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And often, there are unintended consequences: People keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face.”

By the way, that advice given back in March was completely consistent with the little menace’s position on mask-wearing that he has held for many years. Yet, today, he has suddenly morphed into not only advocating the wearing of masks, but also the wearing of goggles to protect the eyes.

Ask yourself this: What changed? The science didn’t change. The data didn’t change. Just the politics and the priorities of his masters in the Democrat Party. That’s all that changed.

The man is a menace to our entire society.

Oh, hey, speaking of the little menace to society… – After spending the past four months breathlessly touting a miracle vaccine as the only answer to COVID-19, Fauci started walking back the hype:

Oh. You don’t saaaayyyyyy…

From a piece at The Hill:

White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci said public health measures will likely still be needed to keep the coronavirus pandemic under control even with the development of a vaccine as it could end up being effective just half of the time.

“We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be. We don’t know if it will be 50 percent or 60 percent. I’d like it to be 75 percent or more,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Friday during a webinar hosted by Brown University, according to CNBC.

“But the chances of it being 98 percent effective are not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach,” he said.

[End]

Ok, so, what he is telling you here is exactly what I’ve been telling you since March: That a COVID-19 vaccine will be just like the annual flu vaccine, i.e., not a “vaccine” at all, but a treatment that is only going to be marginally effective.

Fauci’s final sentence there is very telling, and something he never focuses on because it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money: What we really should be doing as a nation is moving on with our lives and focusing on protecting the most vulnerable among us – the elderly and people with underlying conditions – and developing effective treatments for this virus that save lives of those who catch it.

You know, like Hydroxychloroquine, which Fauci also refuses to endorse since it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money, either.

This man is a menace. Period.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – The riots continued to escalate again last night, their 77th consecutive night without relief. As usual, we only know this through the efforts of real journalist Any Ngo, who risks his well-being every day to report the truth.

The Antifa/BLM threats to residents continue to escalate:

Oh, hey, guess what? The police declared a riot. Again.

Lots of arrests being made. But of course, the local Soros-funded DA just lets them right back out onto the streets:

At this point, it is once again obvious that communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown and communist Mayor Ted Wheeler have no intention of allowing their state and local police to protect the population and shut these rioters down.

These people will not stop until they are stopped. It’s not complicated.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Trolls the Press as Portland Spirals out of Control

Let’s start with this bit of hilarity from President Donald Trump at his impromptu press conference last night:

I’ve watched it 20 times and still laugh out loud.

The trouble with Susan Rice is that she’s a liar and probably a criminal. – Other than that, she’d make a great vice president. At least, the Democrats appear to think so, with rumors continuing to swirl that she now leads the horse race to become Joe Biden’s designated successor, er, “running mate.”

Writing at RealClearInvestigation, Eric Felton published a terrific expose’ of how Rice’s serial lies could ultimately lead to her prosecution.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

Susan Rice, the vice presidential contender with a high-profile history of questionable public statements, has another dubious claim in her past that until now has escaped scrutiny. Rice swore under oath that as President Obama’s national security adviser she was never told about the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. But former FBI Director James Comey testified that Rice was present when he informed Obama all about Crossfire Hurricane just weeks after the investigation was launched.

James Comey: His account of telling the White House about Crossfire Hurricane differs markedly from Susan Rice’s recollection. She testified: “We were not informed by Director Comey or the attorney general that there was an active investigation of anybody in the Trump orbit.”

The contradiction could lead to charges that Rice lied to Congress about a topic still of intense interest to investigators: How actively involved in the effort to spy on the Trump campaign was the inner circle of the Obama White House, including the president himself? More immediately, the question of whether Rice told the truth on Capitol Hill might damage her bid to join Joe Biden on the Democratic presidential ticket.

Rice earned a reputation for shading the truth after the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. She was famously dispatched to five different Sunday morning news shows to repeat false talking points: that the mob that killed four Americans – including Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens – was merely reacting to an obscure YouTube video mocking Islam.

Questions about her forthrightness were redoubled when Senate investigators found that, in the waning minutes of the Obama administration, Rice wrote a curious “memo to the file.” She sent an email to herself on the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, and in it claimed that Obama had insisted that everything to do with Russia, whether law enforcement or counterintelligence, be done “by the book.”

President Obama and Rice: Both were present at a meeting where, the FBI’s Comey said, the Trump-Russia probe was discussed at its outset. She denied knowing about it.

Asked about that memo later, Rice insisted she knew nothing about the FBI’s counterintelligence probe regarding Trump and Russia, let alone anything that could be characterized as spying on the incoming administration. She had her lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler, write a letter to Sens. Charles Grassley, Dianne Feinstein, Lindsey Graham, and Sheldon Whitehouse. “While serving as National Security Advisor, Ambassador Rice was not briefed on the existence of any FBI investigation into allegations of collusion between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia,” Ruemmler wrote, “and she later learned of the fact of this investigation from Director Comey’s subsequent public testimony” – testimony that didn’t occur until March 20, 2017

On Wednesday, September 8, 2017, Rice repeated that she knew nothing of the FBI’s investigation while in the White House. This time she made the claim under oath.

Rice was at the Capitol, sitting in a secure room used by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The official reason for the interview was to ask what the Obama administration had done to thwart Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Behind those questions was a different query: Had Barack Obama’s team used the power of the presidency to spy on and smear the Trump campaign?

With the expectation of facing unfriendly questions, Rice arrived with two attorneys from the law firm Latham & Watkins.

Adam Schiff: “… [W]ould Director Comey brief you on the progress of his investigation?” he asked Rice. “No,” replied Rice under oath.

The Republican staffer running the interview emphasized to Rice the importance of telling the truth: “You are reminded that it is unlawful to deliberately provide false information to members of Congress or staff.” She was asked to raise her right hand and take an oath: “Madam Ambassador, do you swear or affirm that the testimony you’re about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”

“I do,” Rice said.

[End]

Go read the full piece, and then you will fully understand why the Obama Cabal wants Rice to be on the ticket as a means of self-preservation.

Kristi Noem is a boss. – God Bless South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, who has stood out among all of the nation’s 50 governors with her tremendous leadership through the China Virus pandemic. Her state was never shut down, has never had a mask mandate, has never had travel restrictions, has never had a shelter-in-place order, and has seen the best results in the entire country, perhaps in the world.

As other states have witnessed their convention industries literally go up in smoke, Noem’s leadership made it possible for President Trump to stage the magnificent tribute to America at Mount Rushmore on July 3. This weekend, that same leadership has set the stage for this to happen:

Thanks to Governor Noem’s leadership, the people of South Dakota are still living their best lives, and that fact will be celebrated by a quarter of a million bikers this week.

America.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – We go from the best example of real leadership in a crisis our country has to offer directly to the very worst example, in Ted Wheeler’s communist republic of Portland. There, as we mentioned yesterday, the Democrat Party-sponsored rioters have now expanded their base of destruction to include not just the city center, but now at least one residential area as well, as state and local police continue to be hamstrung by Wheeler and communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown.

Here are examples of last night’s mayhem, chronicled as usual by real journalist Andy Ngo:

Here’s a notice sent out to residents of that neighborhood – I’m sure this made them feel so much better:

Hooboy.

But the rioters of course remained active in the downtown area as well:

Look, this is spiraling completely out of control now. Unless Brown and Wheeler release the state and local LEOs to really do their jobs using all riot control tools at their disposal, the rioters will only continue to expand their operations into additional areas of the city. It is one thing to sit back and allow these goons to occupy and destroy public property: It is quite another thing to let them do the same things in residential areas where the lives of private citizens and their children come into risk.

If the communist Democrats won’t stop this, then the President must do it for them, regardless of any political considerations. The separation of powers only works when the people holding power in a given jurisdiction are well-meaning Americans. That obviously is no longer the case in Portland.

That is all.

Democrats Are Destroying Their Own Cities, and it all Makes Perfect Sense

America’s cities are dying, and no one in the Democrat Party seems to want to do anything to stop it from happening. In fact, it is Democrats who are actively managing the chaos and destruction. Ask yourselves why that is the case.

After all, the big cities represent almost the entire base of power for the Democrat Party. That’s why the county-by-county presidential election maps always look like a sea of red with little blue islands sprinkled onto it.

Election Results in the Third Dimension - Metrocosm

Most of those islands are the counties where the big cities are. The sea of red is where they aren’t. This isn’t complicated.

Yet, right now, as we sit isolated in our homes today thinking about which useless, virtue-signaling mask we will wear when we venture out to the grocery store, Democrat mayors and city councils all over the country are willingly presiding over the complete destruction of their centers of power.

The mass exodus out of New York City that is happening right now under communist Bill de Blasio’s buffoonish leadership has become so severe that it had mass murdering Governor Andrew Cuomo actually begging wealthy people to move back, promising to buy them drinks and dinner if they do:

Mayors like De Blasio, Lori Lightfoot in Chicago and Muriel Bowser in Washington, DC appear bent on completely destroying their cities’ tourism industries, which are the life’s blood for their local economies. All three communist Democrat mayors have now imposed 14 day quarantine requirements against any person entering their cities from a broad list of other U.S. states, as well as other countries. This is madness, plain and simple.

Or maybe it’s something else entirely. Perhaps it isn’t madness at all, but simply a part of the goal of any communist in America, which is to destroy our nation’s institutions and economy in order to render the population destitute, isolated, frightened and needy, and thus far easier to control.

We must all wake up and recognize that today’s “Democrats” are not our father’s or grandfather’s Democrats. We have no doubt all known so many Democrats in our lives who voted for that party’s candidates out of a sense of compassion for the poor and perceived generosity, albeit with other people’s money. Voting for Democrats has been their means of assuaging their own guilt over having so much in their lives.

Anyone who still believes that today’s Democrat Party still has anything even slightly resembling a sense of compassion for the poor in our society is living in some warped, post-apocalyptic version of Fantasy Island. Literally the only thing today’s Democrat politicians care about doing with the poor is to manufacture more of them, whether that be by destroying our own economy or by opening up the borders to anyone who wants to come in and become dependent on our already overwhelmed social safety net.

Do any of you really still believe that San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer have tanked the latest stimulus bill because they want more in it for the poor? That’s what the trillion dollar GOP Senate bill is focused on doing.

The stuff the Democrats want to lard into it in fact involves about a trillion dollars to bail out their own poorly-managed states and cities that they have run into the ground over the past half century, giving a gigantic tax break to wealthy people in New York and California, and spending another trillion or so on “Green New Deal” nonsense that will dramatically increase everyone’s power bills, a move that would hit the poorest the hardest.

The irony is that congressional Democrats are trying to bail out the big cities that local Democrat officials are in the process of intentionally destroying. This week, in response to Cuomo’s pleading, the Big Doofus de Blasio told reporters that “New York is for New Yorkers.”

He then went on to say the following (read carefully):

“We must build our policies around working people,” he said. “If the federal government fails us we should immediately return to Albany to the discussion put a tax on wealthy New Yorkers.”

“While everyone else is suffering, you see stock markets rising, the rich getting richer. Wealthy New Yorkers, they can pay a bit more so can get through this crisis,” de Blasio continued.

De Blasio during his press conference also advised New Yorkers against buying a car. “My advice to New Yorkers is don’t buy a car, cars are the past, future is mass transit, biking, hiking,” the mayor said. “Going forward I will never buy a car again.”

“There’s a lot of New Yorkers who are wealthy who are true believers in New York City and will stand and fight with us, and some may be fair-weathered friends, but they will be replaced by others,” the mayor continued.

[End]

Will the wealthy who are fleeing the city really be replaced by others, as the Mayor contends? What wealthy person in his or her right mind would move to New York City as it exists today?  What person of means would voluntarily move into a city to pay double the taxes he or she would owe in a neighboring state? What person with an innovative, forward-looking mind would want to live under the yoke of a communist Mayor who wants his citizens to eliminate their own independence and mobility?

Even more to the point: What person of means would want to live in what has become a hell-hole with skyrocketing crime and constant rioting, and which is governed by a communist Mayor and city council that is actively de-funding the police department?

And it’s not just New York City: The very same dynamics are taking place in Democrat-run cities all over the country. We talk about Portland, Chicago, Seattle and Minneapolis a lot, but the exact same things are happening in Democrat-run cities in red states like Texas and Louisiana and Tennessee and Georgia.

It all seems like madness, this effort by Democrats to destroy the cities that serve as their base of power. But, when you accept the reality that today’s Democrat Party is now a violent, radicalized, Alinskyite/communist organization with all the attendant overarching goals that come with it, you realize it isn’t madness at all, but just a necessary piece of the Grand Plan.

Once you accept who today’s Democrats truly are, everything they do makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Durham Targets Brennan, Portland Rioters Expand Their Operations

This happened on Thursday:

Now, ok, I get it: Many of you are going to respond with “well, it’s about time! What in the hell has Durham been doing????” Yeah, ok, get it out of your system. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

There, you done? Feel better now?

Ok. Look, in this kind of case, which involves literally dozens of potential targets for prosecution and dozens more potential witnesses who must be vetted, federal prosecutors like Mr. Durham will always – ALWAYS – wait to interview the big fish last.

The reason why is simple: They want to give the smaller fish – like, say, Peter Strzok or Bruce Ohr or Kevin Clinesmith – every opportunity to make a deal and turn state’s witness before they talk to the really big targets like Durham and Comey. This is the natural progression of any such investigation.

So, for better or worse, this is actually great news, a sign that Durham is finally getting to the end of his investigation. Attorney General William Barr has twice promised a “report” from Durham by the “end of summer,” which is September 22. Barr has also indicated that Durham has had at least one grand jury convened, and it is the job of a grand jury to true bill indictments.

Hopefully it isn’t all a Jeff Sessions-like smoke screen, but we will find out either way soon enough.

Stay tuned.

Hey, look: A random act of actual journalism at NPR. – Watch despicable Nancy Pelosi’s reaction as her trusted toady Judy Woodruff goes off-script and actually asks her a semi-tough question:

For a moment there, Woodruff must have remembered that she used to be a journalist. You can be sure she will not make that mistake again when talking to Pelosi.

And now a word from the mindless blithering hacks at Morning Joe. – Watch this clip and marvel as the liberals at Morning Joe twist themselves into racist pretzels in their efforts to serve as apologist for the Democrat Party’s addled nominee, Joe Biden:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. What you are watching here in real time is the Democrat Party removing its own mask and returning to its Jim Crow past. All for the sake of getting the Bad Orange Man out of the White House. Amazing.

Gosh, Ted, who tipped you off? – Portland’s communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler suddenly woke up on Thursday and realized that the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters who he has been allowing to run wild in his city are creating b-roll for President Donald Trump to use in his re-election campaign ads. Hey, I wonder what tipped him off?

From a piece at KGW8 TV in Portland:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell spoke about the ongoing violence in Portland during a news conference Thursday.

On Wednesday night, Portland police declared a riot, arrested 8 people and used tear gas after a crowd of a couple hundred people gathered outside the East Precinct. Some people in the crowd tried to set the building on fire while officers and others were inside, the mayor said. Others tried to smash the glass doors of the precinct building and threw large, heavy rocks and other items at officers.

Wheeler said what happened Wednesday night “was intended to cause serious injury or death, and it very well could have.”

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating. You are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said.

[End]

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyy. But it gets better.

From a piece at Willamette Week:

“Don’t think for a moment that, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” Wheeler said. “Because you absolutely are. You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

[End]

Ok, so, what did the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters do in response to their partner’s admonitions? Why, they expanded their operations into a residential district, naturally.

For coverage of that, we must turn to real, actual journalist Andy Ngo, since the hacks in the corrupt corporate news media refuse to do their jobs:

But never fear: The Democrat Antifa/BLM rioters did not abandon their downtown mission:

So, the situation in Portland – which your corrupt news media continues to describe as “mostly peaceful” – is now about to spiral out of control unless the rioters’ Democrat sponsors pull their funding. Maybe this was why President Trump was once again speculating about ramping up federal involvement in that city again yesterday.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Biden Goes Berserk, Portland Riots Mount, de Blasio Goes Full-on Nazi

Here is an angry old white man exercising his white privilege and verbally assaulting a Black reporter who is just trying to do his job. – That’s how the corrupt hacks at CNN and the New York Times would describe the video below if it involved a Republican.

But hey, it’s Joe Biden, so the only thing that gets reported out of this incident is that Biden was trying to “clarify” the fact that he has not ever taken a cognitive test despite his claim a couple of weeks back that he is “tested all the time.”

Here’s the clip:

You could never make this stuff up, folks.

Oh, but it gets better. – Here is the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee explaining how he would deal with China if he wins the election:

If that doesn’t give you a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, nothing will.

This is happening in Australia. Not Russia. Not China. Not Venezuela. Australia. – It will eventually happen in the United States if we, the people don’t make this madness stop. Watch this video featuring Katie Hopkins and realize that this is nothing more than the logical conclusion of where Democrat governors – an a few Republicans, too  – want to take us:

An entire major city, locked in their homes, unable to travel more than 5 km, unable to go to the grocery store with anyone else including their children, all schools and child care centers closed, all non-essential businesses closed, everything shut down for six solid weeks due to the deaths of 7 elderly patients, all of whom were over the age of 70 and some of whom probably did not die to to COVID-19.

If you think this cannot happen in America, you just have not been paying close enough attention to what has already been happening.

For example, here is what communist Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti is now doing in Los Angeles with the full approval of communist Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom:

But it gets even worse in New York City. – Andrew Cuomo, the ghoul Governor of New York who is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers in the state’s nursing homes, has been bragging for weeks now about how the worst of the viral gift from China is over for his state.

Ok, fine. But if that’s the case, why is the Big Doofus, New York City’s communist Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, implementing Nazi-style check points at which his cops are wasting their time checking the papers of everyone entering and exiting the city?

From a report at NBC4 New York:

Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City would start implementing checkpoints across the five boroughs to help enforce Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s quarantine order for travelers from viral hotspots, citing the ongoing national COVID threat.

The measure announced Wednesday is the first significant effort by New York City specifically to help enforce the 14-day quarantine for travelers from 34 states and Puerto Rico. In revealing it, de Blasio said the state was “absolutely right” to impose the travel restriction in the first place. Cuomo announced it in late June.

The governor has said the quarantine itself is imperfect and Mayor de Blasio admitted New York City’s new enforcement plan has some caveats as well. But the idea, the mayor said, is to send a strong message to people coming in.

“The checkpoints are going to send a very powerful message that this quarantine is serious. Even if we can’t reach every single person I think it’ll get the message across,” de Blasio said. “We don’t want to penalize people. We want to educate them, make sure they’re following the rules.

[End]

Thus, the descendants of thousands of Holocaust survivors who still live in New York City are getting a real-life taste of the kinds of crackdowns their ancestors experienced. Right here in America, where their descendants fled after the War.

Surreal.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, the “peaceful protesters” continued their efforts to destroy Portland. – Hey, at least the police are now being allowed to use tear gas. In Democrat-run cities in America today, that is what we call “progress.”

The intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo is as always on the ground getting the truth out while the corrupt corporate media continues to lie about it. As usual, the riots were still ongoing as I began to compile this piece at 5:30 CT. Here are some highlights of the hijinks and shenanigans these “peaceful” kids were engaged in:

Hey, at least they’re attacking a local police precinct instead of the federal courthouse now.

So, you might be wondering how the leadership of communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and his fellow communist Democrats on the city council is working out for the people of the city in terms of violent crime. Well, Mr. Ngo is on top of that, too.

Check this out:

So, just like New York City; just like Chicago; just like Minneapolis; just like Seattle. All Democrat cities run by communist Democrat Mayors and city councils dominated by communist Democrats.

There’s a pattern here, folks, and it isn’t hard to detect. Well, unless you’re a Democrat or a corrupt reporter, that is.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: A False Beirut Explosion Narrative and the Portland Riots Explode Again

And so the false narrative forms around the Beirut explosion. – The official government narrative out of Lebanon about the horrific series of hundreds of smaller explosions followed by at least one, and possibly two massive blasts at the shipping port of Beirut on Tuesday.

As I noted yesterday, the Al Arabiya news service reported that the explosions took place at a warehouse that was a known weapons depot for the Hezbollah terrorist group that dominates Lebanon’s government. President Trump stated at his press conference late Tuesday evening that his generals had told him they believed it was an “attack” on Beirut, but did not elaborate.

But this morning we wake up to the following official narrative put out by the Hezbollah-dominated Lebanese government:

  • Beirut awoke to scenes of devastation this morning, following two huge explosions in its port which sent a blast wave across the city, killing at least 100 people and injuring nearly 4,000.
  • Lebanese prime minister Hassan Diab appealed to all countries and friends of Lebanon to extend help to the nation, saying: “We are witnessing a real catastrophe.” He earlier said the cause of the explosion was 2,700 tonnes of ammonium nitrate, a common industrial chemical used in fertiliser and as a component in mining explosives. Diab declared a national day of mourning for the victims of the explosion, and promised accountability.

[End]

Ok, so, we are to believe it was all caused by ammonium nitrate, the same element commonly used in fertilizers that was the source of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1994 and the horrible 2013 blast that leveled the city of West, Texas.

But there’s a big hole in that narrative: While improperly stored ammonium nitrate could indeed explain the enormous explosion(s) at the end of the clip below, it does not at all account for the hundreds of smaller explosions and massive fire that preceded that explosion.

Were those smaller explosions caused by fireworks, as early rumors contended? Or were they caused by exploding munitions? One thing is certain: They were not caused by ammonium nitrate.

The official government/media narrative, as usual, is false. Corrupt politicians and news media are not confined to the United States.

Who is the singled dimmest bulb in the United States Senate? – The badge for that honor might just have to go to Hawaii’s disgraceful senator, Mazie Hirono, who embarrasses herself and her state each and every time she opens her incredibly stupid mouth.

The Senator really outdid herself at yesterday’s hearing on domestic terrorism held by the Subcommittee on the Constitution, which is chaired by Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Watch below as she embarrasses herself and then is further embarrassed by Cruz as she storms out of the hearing:

This is who you are voting for, Democrats. A pox on all your houses for doing so.

The Portland riots are escalating again. – After a few nights during which the Antifa/BLM rioters tapered down their activities to help support the media/Democrat narrative that all the violence was the fault of federal law enforcement officers, the violence exploded on the streets again.

As usual, the one and only reason why we know all of this is thanks to intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo, who flew across the country to testify in Ted Cruz’s hearing on domestic terrorism during the day, and then flew all the way back to Portland to capture the truth.

Here is some of the action from Tuesday night/Wednesday morning – the action was still ongoing as I compiled this piece at 5:30 a.m. Central Time.:

And, for those who may be buying the media/Democrat lies that the disruptive actions of the rioters are isolated to “just a few blocks downtown,” there’s this:

The simple truth here is that communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown and communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler are still hamstringing the ability of state and local law enforcement to use all the tools at their disposal to effectively put down these domestic terrorists. Which is not surprising given that these domestic terrorists are in fact aided and abetted by the Democrat Party.

These riots have now gone on uninterrupted for more than 70 consecutive days and nights. Because they are organized and funded by Democrats, they will not end until they are put down, or until the Democrats see polling data that indicates they are harming their election chances.

Yes, it’s despicable; yes, it’s depraved; yes, it is disgraceful, demented and disgusting. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

That is all.
