Thursday News Roundup: Antifa Takes Seattle and Portland, Biden Gets the Deal, Romney is Confused

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

So, that Seattle Autonomous Zone set up by Antifa is going so darn well! Check it out.:

Why are Governor Jay Inslee and his fellow radical Democrats who run the state tolerating this? After all, everything that is taking place here is a crime. For his part, Inslee is so dishonest that he even claimed to a press conference not to even know it is happening:

An obvious, blatant lie.

But think about why Inslee and his government is tolerating this, because the answer is obvious: They’re all Democrats. These were Democrat protests, Democrat riots, Democrat looting and burning of Democrat-controlled cities in Democrat-controlled states.

This is what the Democrat Party is at this point. As I told you back in 2018, the Democrat Party now views looting and rioting and burning vast swaths of major cities as just another political tool in their tool chest. They’ve gone all the way back to 1867, when they created the Ku Klux Klan to terrorize the South.

Here’s another example from yesterday.:

That’s right: An historic statue of Christopher Columbus on the Minnesota state capitol grounds was toppled, ISIS style, by Democrat Antifa clowns. They did this all while the Capitol Police stood around and watched with their thumbs up their a**es, obviously having been ordered to stand down by their Democrat superiors.

Why? Because they’re all Democrats. Seriously, think about how the Capitol Police would have been ordered to respond if a group of freedom protesters attempted to take down a statue of some liberal hero that stands on those same grounds. It would have been an all-out assault complete with riot gear and tear gas and military armored personnel carriers.

You know I’m right.

Democrats don’t just tolerate this stuff, they are actively lying about it even happening and celebrating those who are doing it.

Here’s what President Donald Trump tweeted about the situation in Seattle last night:

Well, Mr. President, the Antifa action in Seattle includes armed paramilitary personnel and participants posting instructions about how to put together and plant explosive devices on social media. This is, in fact, an armed insurrection in a major city of the United States of America. Maybe it’s time to quit tweeting about it at 1:00 in the morning and invoke the Insurrection Act whether your panty-waist Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff approves of it or not.

Just a thought.

Oh, hey, now we have Antifa nitwits trying to do the same thing in the People’s Republic of Portland Oregon:

The hilarious part of all of this is that the Antifa terrorists are too pea-brained to understand the fact that they have just built a high-fence prison for themselves. Sure, there’s no way in. But when the food runs out and they need to go pee, there’s no way out, either.

Well, of course he does. – Hey, y’all, even Joe Biden knows he won’t be president for long if he stumbles to an election victory on November 3. Yesterday, he told an interviewer that his choice of a running mate needs to be “…someone strong. I want someone strong, and someone who can — who is ready to be president on day one.”

Right. Because whomever he picks will most likely become president within a month of his inauguration day.

So, take a look at the various lists of potential Biden running mates, and think about which one you would have any confidence in at all should she become president:

– Kamala Harris

– Elizabeth Warren

– Amy Klobuchar

– Val Demings

– Frau Gretchen Whitmer

– Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms

– Susan Rice

– Tammy Baldwin

– Tammy Duckworth

– New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham

It’s like a list of the lame, the halt and the blind. Outside of possibly Klobuchar and maybe Demings, each and every one of the rest of that list would be an unmitigated disaster in the office of the presidency. Given majorities in both houses of congress, they all would turn the U.S. into a socialist nation on the Venezuelan model, which is essentially what Antifa and BLM agitate for.

Hey Joe: If you really want to choose a running mate who would be ready on Day One, see if Condi Rice will agree to the role. Otherwise, you are SOL, buddy.

Speaking of the election… – Over the weekend, all the news was how Mitt Romney, George W. Bush and Colin Powell were all going to vote for Biden. Yesterday, Romney indicated that, despite his non-support for a President of his own political party, he still expects President Trump to be re-elected. No kidding:

“I’m confident that we will keep the majority in the Senate,” Romney told a group of reporters following a Senate GOP luncheon. “And I actually have long predicted the president will be reelected. I continue to think that’s the case.”

Oh. If you’re confused, think about what Romney’s state of mind must look like.

So does Bill Clinton. – Commie Bernie Sanders says he has a better relationship with Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden than he did with Hillary Clinton.

He’s not alone.

That is all.

Hear Me Roar

A brilliant piece from Kelly at Red Chair Reflections:

HEAR ME ROAR

The winner of the 2020 US Presidential Election will not be a woman.

(Well, unless Tulsi Gabbard has a heck of a surge, I suppose.)

I was offline most of the day in a meeting, but once I got to the airport I had time to review what had happened in the news today. Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the Presidential race. She joins Kamala Harris, Marianne Williamson, and Amy Klobuchar (as well as all the men who also dropped out of the race.) I’ve never run for office – at least I haven’t, yet – but it takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there for the highest office in the land and fight that good fight. I have worked on campaigns before. It is grueling, exasperating, sometimes exhilarating but often thankless, hard intense work. There is no shame in fighting the good fight and coming up short.

Conventional internet and social wisdom is that our country either “just isn’t ready” for a female president, or “the patriarchy wins again. The media is so unfair. It’s a double standard. Women have it so much harder than men and are so unappreciated.”

Wrong. No. Just stop it. Enough. Do you really think so little of yourselves, our gender, the men in our lives? The country we all love?

I see lists all the time of women we should look up to and see as women who set the standard for standing strong and changing the world. I saw an article posted by several people on social media today, kind of a requiem for Elizabeth Warren’s presidential run. It was a lovely, inspiring article full of heartfelt emotion. I completely understand the disappointment when a candidate that you’ve worked for and believed in and supported isn’t successful.

The article praised women for persisting. I certainly have no argument about that. The article listed a lot of female trailblazers as examples. Gloria Steinem, Angela Davis, Billie Jean King, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Oprah Winfrey, J.K. Rowling, Bree Newsome, Malala Yousafzai, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Sally Yates, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Amy Klobuchar. It’s not that these women should not be admired. We might quibble for what and how much, but that is not the point. I see this list all the time, maybe with an addition here or there but basically the same list. And you know what I do? I sigh.
