Thursday News Roundup: Chris Wallace Fills in for CNN in Debates, Commie Portland Mayor Relocates

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – In case you missed it yesterday, the stock market rocketed skywards again on Wednesday amid ongoing positive economic news.

The NASDAQ shot over 12,000 for the first time to reach a new all-time high. The S&P 500 closed at 3,581, also a new record close. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 455 points to close above 29,000 for the first time this year, finishing the day at 29,101. The Dow has now regained 98% of its losses early this year, and is within 400 points of its all-time record close.

Tired of all this WINNING? Not even close. We need at least another 4 years.

Facebook joins the Democrat/media effort to brainwash you into accepting a stolen election. – Facebook announced this morning that it is enacting two new measures designed to condition you to think it is President Trump, and not the Democrats, who is plotting to steal the November election.

Facebook says it will refuse to run political ads the week prior to Election Day, and that it will create a “new label” for posts by candidates claiming victory before the official results have been certified.

The first measure is a direct attack on the Trump Campaign, given its huge edge in effective social media advertising. The second measure is Facebook’s effort to coordinate the Democrat strategy laid out earlier this week by the Democrat front group Hawfish, which I covered in a piece yesterday. Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

[End]

See the connection here? It’s pretty transparent.

Again, the media – including social media – is brainwashing you to be willing to accept a stolen election in the weeks following Election Day. They really aren’t even hiding it at this point.

This is CNN… – Watch Attorney General William Barr decimate slimy Wolf Blitzer on the question of mass mail-in voting:

Glorious.

Speaking of CNN… – CNN was left out of the list of debate moderators that was released on Wednesday. This is the first time in this century that the fake news channel will not have one of its Democrat Party operatives trying to slant one of the debates. The reason for this is obvious: Even the Commission on Presidential Debates knows that CNN is no longer anything resembling a legitimate “news” operation.

But that knowledge by the Commission did not stop it from loading up its list of “moderator” with nothing but Trump haters. That list is led by this guy:

Rey LoweIffert on Twitter: "#FNS it's very clear we are not  nation-building. We are standing up for international law and what is  right. why does Chris Wallace seem to have a real

Yes, friends, Chris Wallace, the lisping son of famous communist Mike Wallace, and a man who would be far more at home sitting next to Wolf Blitzer on CNN, will serve as the “moderator” of the first presidential debate. Those screams of joy you heard yesterday when this was announced were emanating from Joe Biden’s basement.

This invariable stacking of the deck in favor of the Democrat candidate is why the debate “commission” should be disbanded, and future debates should simply be organized by the respective campaigns. If the campaigns can’t agree to a format and moderators, then you don’t have debates. Simple.

You would think these Democrat-sponsored domestic terrorists would be more grateful. – Ted Wheeler probably still doesn’t understand this immutable fact of leftist revolutions, but he and his fellow Useful Idiots in the Democrat Party will be the first to be executed should their dream of a Marxist revolution ever come to full fruition.

Wheeler has received a clear preview of that difficult reality this week, as the same domestic terrorists he and his Party have encouraged and funded for almost 100 days now invaded his pricey condominium complex beginning on Sunday, and have continued targeting it all week. At one point they even set fires that threatened to burn the place down.

Obviously, poor Commie Ted has now been beset with complaints from his fellow wealthy and privileged neighbors, who were likely just fine with the riots as long as they didn’t come to their own neighborhood. So, Commie Ted announced yesterday that he would be departing his lovely condo and moving to undisclosed, but no doubt equally splendid grounds:

Wheeler wrote a letter to his neighbors informing them that he was moving in order to avoid more violence from protesters at the condominium.

“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position. It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration,” read the letter according to The Oregonian, which obtained a screenshot of the message.

He went on to say that it would be best for him “and for everyone else’s safety and peace” to move from the condominium.

[End]

Aw, poor Commie Ted, a victim of the evil he helped to create.

Speaking of Portland, how about those riots! – The Democrat-sponsored riots raged in Portland for a 99th straight night.  Here are some highlights provided by real journalist Andy Ngo, including information on where the extremely wealthy Commie Mayor might be moving:

The DOJ has now cross-deputized local law enforcement so that assaults by rioters on them now become federal crimes. Thus, William Barr outsmarts local Soros-funded DA who refuses to prosecute them:

Even the liberal courts in the 9th Circuit are turning against the Democrat terrorists:

The President signed a memo yesterday ordering his agencies to find ways to defund lawless Democrat-controlled cities like Portland:

Finally, here is a witness to the murder of a Trump supporter by Democrat domestic terrorists in Portland last weekend:

Sunday News Roundup: Antifa Goes to Sturgis and Portland Cops Suddenly Fight Back

This is the perfect illustration of what Twitter really is. – President Trump lost his brother, Robert Trump, to illness on Saturday. In response, the perpetual outrage crowd on Twitter started a hashtag, #wrongtrump, trending. The despicable cretins who run Twitter have left it up on their trending session all night long.

Twitter is a cesspool filled largely with self-loathing sub-humans.

America’s “first black woman vice presidential nominee” is a … Caucasian? – That’s what her own parents stated for her birth certificate:

Image

Caucasian at birth, Indian or Jamaican when convenient, and now “black” in order to be placed on a presidential ticket. This is one highly-versatile lady.

Sadly, they were not beaten to within an inch of their sorry lives and dumped in a ditch. – A small band of Antifa fascists decided to go to Sturgis on Saturday and protest the big annual bike rally being held there. Fun predictably ensued, as reported at Powerline Blog:

Earlier today, a handful of Antifa goofs decided to take their anti-American shtick to the annual biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. If this sounds like a bad idea to you, you are right.

Actually, the bikers were commendably well-behaved. Sturgis is a fun, feel-good event, and it would take more than a few fascists to put the bikers in a seriously bad mood. Still, a scuffle broke out at one point. Police officers protected the Antifas and escorted them away safely. (It isn’t you, there is no sound with this video.)

Of course, the Antifas were counting on law enforcement to protect them. Some might find this ironic.

[End]

This is one instance where I would have preferred for the police to have been defunded. Unfortunately, they did their jobs.

Back to Kamala Harris… – Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel dismantles the 180 degree turn that the corrupt news media has performed in its characterization of Joe Biden’s designated successor. Back in December, when she ended her horror story of a campaign earlier than any other significant contender, the corrupt media mocked her. Today, now that she’s the Veep nominee of their Democrat Party masters, the very same corrupt reporters parrot DNC talking points portraying her as an invincible campaigner.

It really is amazing to watch. Here’s an excerpt from Strassel’s piece:

In that run, Ms. Harris had about 50 seconds of fame—from a June 2019 debate in which she accused Mr. Biden of being too friendly to racists. Her “That little girl was me” moment and other practiced phrases led to a “Saturday Night Live” impersonation that, as SFGate noted, “mocks” the candidate for her “ ‘viral moments’ desperation.” A New York Times story about how her campaign “unraveled” described one such quest for a memorable catchphrase, noting that her aides had become “given to gallows humor about just how many slogans and one-liners she has cycled through.”

If commentators are now struggling to define Ms. Harris, it’s because she offers little that is truly defining. The party establishment quickly closed ranks around her 2016 Senate race, allowing her to run a standard liberal campaign that the Los Angeles Times described as “carefully orchestrated” and “overly cautious and scripted.” In her 3½ Senate years, she’s done little by way of legislation, preferring to showboat at hearings. The lack of an animating agenda helps a explain a presidential campaign in which she bounced from left to far-left position, whatever she thought most helpful at the moment. She twice called to eliminate private health insurance—and twice reversed herself the next day after backlash. As Vox noted, the “combination of policy reversals and botched rollout . . . undermined faith in her ability to govern on the issue Democrats rate as most important.”

The campaign was a mess, rocked by infighting, leaks, restarts and financial problems. After the campaign announced layoffs in early November, its veteran Iowa operations manager wrote a scathing resignation letter in which she said she’d “never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly” and expressed dismay at its ability to make “the same unforced errors over and over.” Ms. Harris didn’t even make it to the first contest, dropping out—broke and with embarrassing poll numbers—two months before the Iowa caucuses. The only other “top tier” candidate to implode as quickly or spectacularly was Beto O’Rourke. The Washington Post campaign obituary bluntly called Ms. Harris an “uneven campaigner” who was “engulfed by low polling numbers, internal turmoil and a sense that she was unable to provide a clear message.” The Post this week lauded Ms. Harris as “vibrant and energetic” and a “vessel for Democratic hopes.”

[End]

As I pointed out on Thursday, Kamala Harris adds nothing but female hormones and dark-ish skin to the Biden non-campaign. She doesn’t help him in a single state, and her utter ineptitude as a campaigner will certainly end up costing the campaign many times in the weeks to come. She became pick only by virtue of being slightly  more appealing than the human slug Susan Rice.

She’s a horrible choice, but in the end, the only choice Biden’s handlers had once their addled candidate put them in the box they were in.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – Have the gloves been taken off of the Portland police now that the state police have abandoned the fight? It kind of looks like that might have been the case last night, as the Portland LEOs used tear gas, slashed the tires of idiots blocking traffic and just generally raised havoc with the communist Democrat-sponsored rioters.

As usual, we only know all of this thanks to the sterling efforts of real journalist Andy Ngo, who is one of Twitter’s few reedeming assets:

It’s good to see the police fighting back, albeit only on the 79th consecutive night of rioting in their city. Only time will tell if this was an aberration or a new policy dictate from communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler. We will find out when the riots ramp up for their 80th straight night on Sunday.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Andy Ngo Exposes the Corrupt Media’s Deception about the Democrat Portland Riots

Things were peaceful last night in Portl…oh, wait. – No, they weren’t. Not even close, although the local and state police who are now being allowed to do their jobs are beginning to show exactly what they are capable of doing if not held back by communist Democrats like Mayor Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown.

First, here’s how the corrupt goons at the Associated Press lied to their readers about what happened in Portland last night:

Portland protest peaceful after federal presence reduced

Note the intentional implied cause and effect in that headline: federal police reduced, protest gets peaceful. As if the protests only became violent when the federal police began intervening two weeks ago to protect the federal courthouse in that city. That these violent riots have been ongoing, day after day, for almost 70 days now is something you would never know if you get your news from the AP or the corrupt corporate media outlets who parrot the AP’s news feed.

Here is the truth about what took place in Portland last night, courtesy of Andy Ngo, a real, working journalist who could never be hired at the AP for the simple fact that he reports the truth rather than parrot a pre-determined narrative.:

Mr. Ngo also debunks the completely dishonest way in which The Oregonian newspaper has portrayed what is happening in its own city:

So, the utter corruption in our nation’s news media is not limited to the national outlets we focus on the most: It bleeds right on down into your state and local media as well. Why? In part because they all use the content feeds from corrupt national outlets like the NYTimes, CNN and the AP. Look at the Oregonian report again, and note is was fed to that local outlet by the AP.

It is also in part because all of these corrupt journalists were indoctrinated in the same American journalism schools. Completely brainwashed, they parrot the Democrat/Media daily narrative because it has literally become who they are. It’s all they know to do.

They must do that because to do otherwise – to report the truth – they would have to recognize the fact that these riots are fomented day after day after day by outside agitators bused into the city and paid by George Soros front groups that are affiliated with the Democrat Party. These are in fact Democrat Party-planned and sponsored riots. Never forget that.

Thank God for real, honest, hard working journalists who are focused on actually reporting the truth like Andy Ngo.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: 50 Days of Portland Riots and the Resurrection of Kanye 2020

But…but…but…what about the polls????? – Jacob Miller points out just one of the many problems with the suppression polls targeting Trump voters we are seeing today:

A 9% under-sampling of GOP voters – plus, both polls also over-sampled Democrats – is going to make a big difference in the results the polls produce. Just a reminder that the ABC/WaPo poll used the same sampling aberration just 3 weeks before the 2016 election to produce a poll showing the Pantsuit Princes with an insurmountable 13-point lead over Donald Trump. Funny, though, as election day approached, the conductors of that poll steadily re-jiggered their sample in order to show the race getting closer and closer.

What would make anyone think that they aren’t doing the exact same thing this year? Stop asking me about polls, please. Thanks.

Here is what is really happening in Portland. – As Mayor Ted Miller, San Fran Nan and the entirety of the corrupt news media attempts to brainwash you into believing that the only thing the rioters in Portland are doing is paining graffiti on federal buildings there, know that they are lying to you.

Here’s what is really happening in this ongoing riot, brought to you by the intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo), which has now been allowed by Wheeler to continue for more than 50 consecutive days:

There is more, much more. Sadly, if you want to know the truth about what is really happening in Portland and any other place today, you must seek out real journalists like Mr. Ngo and Alex Berenson on Twitter to find it. You will certainly never get it from CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, the NYTimes or the WaPo.

As I wrote in my other piece this morning, America is in the midst of a Marxist insurgency sponsored by the Democrat Party and abetted by the national news media. Marxist mayors like Ted Wheeler are at the forefront of this insurgency. This insurgency will only continue to grow until the federal government puts it down, because the Democrat mayors and governors will never stop supporting it until they are stopped.

Is it time for the Insurrection act? – Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, thinks so:

This, of course, is actually one of the goals of the Democrats are trying to achieve by allowing the rampant destruction of America’s cities. They want to be able to accuse the President of being an aspiring dictator who abuses his authority in the run-up to the November elections. What better way to justify such a charge than having their toadies in the fake news media portray any use of federal law enforcement to do the jobs these Democrat mayors refuse to allow local police to carry out as the evil Orange Man sending in the army? And hey, if thousands of people lose their businesses and more thousands lose their homes and personal property, and more than 3 dozen lose their lives to the rioters, well, that’s a small price to pay, isn’t it?

This really, truly is how today’s Democrats think, folks.

We already see that narrative taking hold in Portland. Trust me, this has been part of the Democrat plan since Day 1 of the staged and coordinated George Floyd riots. They assumed that Trump – who they portray as unstable and irrational – would immediately knee-jerk to ordering federal intervention as the rioters burned and looted Minneapolis. When he didn’t act on their cue, they though surely he would take the bait when they spread the riots to New York City and Chicago and Seattle and Austin and Portland and Atlanta and on and on and on.

But here we are after a month of the CHAZ/CHOP in Seattle, after 51 straight days of violent rioting in Portland, and the President continues refuse to buy into their strategy.

If you think they’ll just fold up their tents on this effort and now work to calm everything down, you have not been paying enough attention in recent months. Stay tuned for something even bigger to be staged.

But…but…but…we have been assured by the corrupt news media that Kanye gave up his campaign earlier this week! – They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?

Well, yeah, of course they would. Where have you been for the last 50 years?

Remember those reports from just a few days ago quoting a “source” close to Kanye West, claiming that the billionaire rap star had already folded up the tent on his presidential campaign? Yeah, that was a lie.

From a report at ABC News:

Kanye West is hitting the campaign trail.

Exactly two weeks after announcing his unlikely bid for president, the rapper announced late Saturday he will be holding the first event of his campaign in South Carolina on Sunday at 5 p.m.

The event will be held at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, according to a statement. It is “for registered guests only.”

Those who wish to attend will need to sign up at West’s new campaign site, kanye2020.country — though the site doesn’t appear to have a specific link to sign up for the event yet.

According to a copy of the release shared with ABC News, all attendees will be asked to sign a COVID-19 liability release form, social distance and wear a mask. West will also be holding a pre-rally press event.

Earlier in the day, West had tweeted he was looking to acquire signatures to get on the ballot in the state.

“Hi guys please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina at any of these locations,” he wrote, sharing a list of locations. “You can also sign up at the website kanye2020.country.”

It’s not entirely clear how West would qualify, as South Carolina’s deadline to file signatures as an independent candidate was July 15. The state does not allow write-in candidates.

West got on the ballot in his first state earlier this week in Oklahoma. The state allows independent candidates to pay a $35,000 fee — small change for rapper and businessman who Forbes says is worth just over $1 billion — to get on the November ballot.
