Friday News Roundup: Tulsa Curfew, Portland Chaos, CBS Wants a Race War and Hating John Bolton

Tulsa’s Mayor starts prepping for a riot. – With reports flying around about Antifa and Black Lives Matter already busing in out-of-state agitators to stage riots in his city this Saturday, Republican Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum declared a state of emergency Thursday and established a 10:00 p.m. curfew that will remain in effect through Saturday.

Twitter predictably erupted with howls of outrage about the hundreds of Trump supporters who have been camping out at the rally site since Monday being forced to move, but the Mayor’s action here is entirely rational.

As a part of his declaration, Mayor Bynum states that ““I have received information from the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that shows that individuals from organized groups who have been involved in destructive and violent behavior in other States are planning to travel to the city of Tulsa for purposes of causing unrest in and around the rally.”

This move by these two Soros-funded domestic terrorist groups to create what will almost certainly become riots without firm police control is entirely predictable. I’d have frankly been stunned if they didn’t engage in this behavior – it’s right out of the Soros/Alinsky/Democrat Party playbook.

In the emergency declaration, the Mayor declares that the implementation of the curfew is necessary so that his police department has time today and tomorrow to properly secure the area around the downtown arena in order to create the best conditions for the prevention of the rioting, looting and burning that we have seen in Democrat-controlled cities all over the country in recent weeks.

Bottom line: This is what responsible mayors do when they know that outside agitators are coming into their city to stage riots. Instead of whining about this move on Twitter, Trump fans should be celebrating the fact that the people of Tulsa have been smart enough to avoid putting Democrats in control of their city.

This is what they want to do to the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial. – Meanwhile, in the Democrat-run city of Portland , Oregon, chaos continues to reign. Take a look at this:

Do not doubt that they would love to do the same to the monuments in Washington, DC. Antifa and Black Lives Matter have in recent weeks distributed flyers to their supporters that include instructions on ways to undermine the foundation of the Washington Monument to cause it to topple over just as this statue was toppled last night.  These people are indistinguishable from ISIS and the Taliban with their goals of erasing history and the monuments to it.

“CBS wants a race war.” – That was the statement made by Caleb Hull yesterday, but he might as well have included pretty much every corrupt national news outlet. Here’s the tweet:

Hull was reacting to an extremely and intentionally misleading headline published by CBS News yesterday describing an incident in which white police officers shot another black man. Here’s an excerpt from a story in the DC Examiner about it:

CBS News drew criticism Wednesday for a headline on a story involving police shooting and killing a black man without mentioning the man allegedly opened fire first.

“Deputies kill half-brother of black man found hanged in park,” a CBS headline posted on Twitter Wednesday read, referring to the death of Terron Jammal Boone.

Boone was the half-brother of Robert Fuller, a black man found hanging in a park on June 10 in what was first believed to be a suicide before the coroner walked back that conclusion.

The tweet doesn’t include the police report that states officers attempted to stop Boone, who was wanted for kidnapping, spousal assault, and assault with a deadly weapon, at which point he jumped out of his vehicle and opened fire on officers before they shot and killed him.

[End]

As is so often the case, it isn’t what an evil, corrupt news outlet did say that’s the problem so much as what it left out.

The fake, corrupt news media is an existential threat to our nation’s survival. This CBS headline/story is but one of a thousand examples we see of this with every passing week.

In case you missed it… – Chief Justice John Roberts betrayed America once again yesterday, siding with the liberal minority on the court in yet another atrocity of a 5-4 decision DACA. Read all about it at this link.

So, you hate John Bolton? Welcome to the party, pal. – Everyone in Washington hates John Bolton. At least, that’s what the very lefist folks at Politico are telling us this morning in a very interesting expose’ on the feckless warmonger who is hawking a new book this week.

Here’s an excerpt:

John Bolton has few friends left in D.C.

A day after excerpts from his bombshell new book emerged excoriating President Donald Trump, the former national security adviser has managed to turn everyone against him.

Republicans say he’s a disgruntled sensationalist who’s merely trying to make money off his book. And Democrats, once buoyed by Bolton’s turn against Trump, now say he is “unpatriotic” for documenting his claims in a book rather than testifying before Congress during Trump’s impeachment inquiry.

Several Republicans this week took direct shots at Bolton, a neoconservative once heralded as the gold standard for the GOP on foreign policy and national security issues.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) said Bolton is “somebody who thought he was being hired to be the commander in chief, and he wasn’t.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he found it hard to take seriously “anyone who claims to have witnessed treason and obstruction of justice and tells about it in a book.”

“Every meeting I’ve been in with John Bolton, he views himself as the smartest person in the room,” added Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 GOP leader. “He thinks he should be president, speaker of the House and chief justice of the Supreme Court all at the same time.”

[End]

Nobody likes a lying warmonger, it seems. That appears to be the only thing both parties can get together on these days.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Trump Pans Antifastan While Biden and CNN Build False Analogies

You know what would be really funny? If President Donald J. Trump held a press conference today in which he recognized Antifa’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) as a free and independent country, built a 32-foot high wall around its perimeter and slapped 100% tariffs on it. The wall would have surveillance cameras placed atop it so that we could all then spend the next few weeks watching “Animal Farm” play out in real life. It could be a great new reality show on Bravo or E!.

It would all be worth it just to see the looks on the faces of Jonathan Karl, Yameche Alcindor and the rest of the White House Press Corps while he was talking. It would be glorious.

Ok, enough wishful thinking.

The President did weigh in on the situation in what he calls “Antifastan” yesterday in this tweet:

So, of course, Washington leftist Governor Jay Inslee and Seattle’s mindless Mayor Jenny Durkan won’t be doing anything about it anytime soon. These are, after all, the same subversive nitwits who ordered the Seattle PD to surrender its 3rd precinct building, which lies inside the border of Antifastan. At a presser yesterday, Durkan compared the situation, in which armed thugs are abusing participants and preventing anyone from traveling through the zone and business owners are being robbed and threatened, to any other “peaceful protest” that has been held within the area over the years.

I laugh about it because it is all so utterly absurd, but the reality is that people are having their rights abused and their livelihoods destroyed, not to mention the almost certain sexual assaults and other brutality taking place in the area. These are Americans who deserve equal protection under the law and no one in a position of authority appears interested in providing that to them.

If you don’t think bad stuff is happening in there, Seattle’s Police Chief will disabuse you of that notion:

By the way, very predictably, no one in the national news media other than Fox News and OAN is really covering what amounts to an armed insurrection on U.S. soil, which is intentional so that the Democrat Governor and Mayor can keep up the pretense that it is no big deal. They’re too busy engaging in yet another round of Wuhan Virus panic porn, as we covered last night.

Deep Thoughts, by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. Not in a billion gazillion years.

Yes, she went there. – Angela Rye, a paid CNN contributor, said during a panel discussion yesterday that we should not distinguish between revolutionary figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and Confederate Civil War figures like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson when it comes to willy-nilly tearing down statues and erasing history.

In making her comments, Ms. Rye assumed for herself the cloak of 18th century slaves owned by Washington and Jefferson, by saying “American history is not all glorious… George Washington was a slave owner. We need to call slave owners out for what they are. Whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not, he wasn’t protecting my freedoms.”

For the record, Ms. Rye was born in a well-to-do family in Seattle, Washington forty years ago. She attended expensive private schools as a child, and obtained an undergrad degree from the University of Washington and a law degree from the extremely expensive Seattle University School of law. Unlike the slaves owned by Washington and Jefferson, she was born into great privilege and has lived in great privilege throughout her entire life in the freest country on planet Earth.

CNN ought to find someone with more authentic grievances to advocate for tearing down the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument, because this particular cat don’t flush.

Speaking of lives of great privilege, I give you the Rev. Al Sharpton:

Meanwhile, the Democrat-dominated City Council in Austin is intent upon turning that Texas city into Seattle South:

Trump is re-starting his rallies and the lefties who run Mediaite have a bad case of the sads about the fact that he is requiring attendees to execute liability waivers to get in:

Guess what? Tens of thousands of Oklahomans will happily sign that waiver for the chance to be present for a Trump rally. You wouldn’t find 100 willing to do the same for Joe Biden.

So suck it, Mediaite.

The True Face of Antifa is Too Ugly for Words

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The fake news hacks at The Oregonian won’t report it, but here’s what the real face of Antifa actually looked like during its’ latest riot in Portland, Oregon on Saturday [Hat tip to Mr. Andy Ngo, that rarest of rare animals in America today: a real, actual journalist.]:

Too ugly for words.

That is all.

Media Coverage of Portland Melee Raises Bias to New Heights

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

Here’s an actual quote from Bernie Sanders yesterday:   “We have a president who is a racist, who is a bigot, who is a sexist, who is a homophobe, and Islamophobe…and what we will not allow him to do is to divide us based on our skin color and our gender.”

Oh. Okay. *sigh*

Here is how The Oregonian fake newspaper led its coverage of yesterday’s stupid clash between the Proud Boys and the violent terrorist group Antifa: “Right-wing activists and those protesting their presence converged Saturday on Portland’s downtown waterfront in a much-anticipated confrontation that captivated a nation inflamed by rising division and resentment, with even President Donald Trump entering the Fray.”

Let’s break that disgustingly amateurish and biased paragraph down. First, the Proud Boys are accurately identified as right-wing activists. That’s what they are. Good start.

Second, the ultra-violent fascism-promoting hate group Antifa is not even identified by name, but as “those protesting their presence”. Gosh, biased much? Did an Antifa leader write this damn article? Or maybe Portland’s Mayor, who might as well be an Antifa leader?

Third, we have this: “…a much-anticipated confrontation that captivated a nation inflamed by rising division and resentment…”. Really? Captivated a nation? Funny, we were out and about most of the day Saturday and didn’t encounter a single person who wanted to ask our opinion of the “confrontation” of these two groups of slugs. Didn’t see a single TV tuned to any channel covering the mindlessly stupid event. Nor did we encounter a single person who seemed at all “inflamed” by “division” or “resentment.” Seems like the Antifa-hugging author of this absurd paragraph is engaging in a little projection.

Finally, let’s analyze this: “…with even President Donald Trump entering the Fray.” Really? The President of the United States was in Portland, Oregon on Saturday? That’s odd, given that multiple reports in our fake news media pegged him being somewhere else. Like at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

And let’s look at that final word: Why is “Fray” capitalized? Is the park where the competing groups of doofuses confronted each other named “the Fray”? Or maybe there was a rock band called “the Fray” playing in the park and President Trump showed up to play bass guitar for them?

Or maybe, just maybe, the Oregonian employs proofreaders who are as utterly dim and incompetent as the author of the piece and the editors who approved it? Yeah, that seems right.

Look, the Oregonian and its unbelievably biased coverage are part of the problem in Portland, as big a part as radical leftist Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s behavior is. This “coverage” reads like a promotional piece for a hate group that is on the verge of receiving a formal “terror group” designation by the federal government. Absurd media promotional pieces like this only serve to encourage their activities in the same way as Wheeler’s refusal to allow Portland’s police department to enforce the law during Antifa’s frequent riots held within Portland’s friendly confines.

This is what happens when cities are run exclusively by leftist Democrats (pardon my redundancy) for decades, as Baltimore and Chicago and Detroit and Philadelphia and San Francisco and Los Angeles and so many other beaten-down large U.S. cities can attest. But hey, Wheeler and his fellow Marxists are the leadership the voters elected, and will no doubt re-elect again and again and again in the coming years.

Within a decade, Portland, Oregon will become the same kind of hollowed-out shell that Baltimore is today. Because that’s what Democrats and their cheerleaders in the press are good at creating.

That is all.

Elijah Cummings’ District is a “Third World Country.” – Bernie Sanders

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

Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media are once again trying to label President Donald Trump as a “racist,” this time because he had the temerity to point out the truth about the squalid conditions in the West Baltimore congressional district represented since the time of Moses by Elijah Cummings, who happens to be a black man.

Here is a video of the conditions the President was talking about:

Baltimore is by and large a hell hole, but it is not alone. All one has to do is look at the list of cities that have been run exclusively or almost exclusively by Democrats for the last half-century to see that Baltimore has plenty of company on America’s list of failed/failing cities.

That list would include Democrat-run cities like Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles and many more. Democrat policies and governance lead to the squalid conditions that characterize much of Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore. Democrat politicians do nothing to improve such conditions, and in fact work to keep them in place because the most reliable Democrat voter is a poor, dependent Democrat voter.

This is simply a fact of our American existence. It is nothing new. It is why a rank demagogue like Elijah Cummings, despite having never accomplished a thing in his entire career that improved the lives of his constituents, just keeps getting re-elected to “represent” them every two years.

Indeed, in 2015, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders likened Cummings’ West Baltimore district to a “third world country,” and, standing with a group of Democrat city leaders, went on to say this:

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think you’re in a third-world country. What we are talking about is a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs. We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable.”

After the same outbreak of street violence that led to Sanders’ visit to West Baltimore, President Barack Hussein Obama his own self referred to the rioters as “criminals and thugs.”

Oh.

But again, Baltimore is far, far from alone. Think of what we have seen from Democrat-run cities in just the past few years:

In San Francisco, the city council’s legalization of pooping and peeing on the streets have very predictably led to a huge downturn in the city’s convention industry, as conventioneers for some reason don’t want to walk down sidewalks filled with human waste. Hard to imagine, right? How long will it be before the Democrats and media start labeling those fleeing conventioneers as “poopophobes?”

Oh, and the funniest thing about the San Fran poop situation is one of the “solutions” Democrat city leaders adopted earlier this year: Publishing a “poop map.”  Swear to God.

In Los Angeles, Democrat policies encouraging an explosion in the city’s homeless and illegal alien population has already led to outbreaks of previously-eradicated diseases like measles and tuberculosis, and now threaten to bring back…wait for it… the BUBONIC PLAGUE. I kid you not. 

Democrat policies in Portland, Oregon banning the police from doing anything effective to stop Antifa rioters have predictably led to… wait for it… MORE ANTIFA RIOTS.  You just cannot make this stuff up, folks.

Elijah Cummings’ district is indeed by and large a squalid hellhole in which few people would ever want to be stuck living. The dirty secret that your fake news media won’t tell you is that is exactly how he and his fellow Democrats want it to remain.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is a Mob, Nothing More

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is just how the fake news media op…ok, well, as I was saying…yes, of course but…oh, nevermind. – In a 26 minute interview on 60 Minutes last night, fake journalist Leslie Stahl interrupted the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, 64 times.  In an interview with Barack Obama on 60 Minutes several years ago, he was interrupted 4 times.

But there is no bias at CBS News.  Just ask them, they’ll tell you.  And when you start to object, they’ll interrupt you.

Another Democrat-run city, another abject failure by law enforcement. – When the history books are written about why the United States descended into chaos, honest historians will write their opening chapters about the failure of law enforcement officials to do their jobs in Democrat-run cities around the country.  Chapter 1 would have to be about Berkeley, California, but chapter 2 would have to be centered on Portland, Oregon.

There on Saturday, a peaceful demonstration by the right-wing group called “Patriots Prayer” was set upon by a bunch of black-clad Antifa rioters, and a huge melee ensued on the downtown streets of the city.  Police stood by and watched for a few minutes as the Antifa thugs armed with bear spray and batons went after it with the Patriots Prayer people before finally jumping in to break up the city’s latest riot.

Get this: NO ARRESTS WERE MADE.  None.  Not one.  No left-wingers, no right-wingers, nobody went to jail.

This event comes just days after Antifa thugs were filmed being left unmolested by the city police as they harassed and assaulted pedestrians and car drivers in one downtown neighborhood of the city.  After that disgusting incident, Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who ironically doubles as the city’s “Police Commissioner,” said that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”  No word if he also thinks people should feel perfectly safe in pits of rattlesnakes, but it seems likely.

On Saturday, the Patriots Prayer group had a lawful permit to conducted its demonstration.  As has become typical of such confrontations in Democrat-run cities around the country, the Antifa group did not.  But again, the police just stood by and watched as the Antifa thugs assembled and started their assault, and then made no arrests.  None.

The Democrat party is a mob.  Nothing more.

Because the demonization of white men was becoming so last year… – Never let it be said that The Campaign Update fails to keep you abreast of the latest political correctness news.  Staying “woke” is not easy these days, since the whims of social justice warriors, campus snowflakes and the university professors who brainwash them all on a daily basis can shift on a dime, but we do our best.

Here’s the latest from the “woke” front:

Out:  White men are the problem with, like, you know, everything and stuff.

In:  White women are so all, like, the problem with all the, you know, stuff or something that, like, white men aren’t causing, you know?  Seriously?

Yes, all you white guys out there, you’re getting a bit of a break while all the SJWs and snowflakes and sharia law-supporting “Women’s Marchers” go after your WAGs (that is “wives and girlfriends” in wokespeak).  Kyle Smith, writing at the National Review, does a really good job of giving us some of the highlights of the new movement to demonize white women today:

Today, white women are being lumped together into a giant bloc subject to absurdly broad stereotyping and vitriolic condemnation. They’re being told to step back and know their place by writers in the New York Times (“white women benefit from patriarchy by trading on their whiteness to monopolize resources for mutual gain”), The New Yorker (“despite the enduring legacy of testimony by black women, white women have often played the protagonists in the history of sexual violence, and black women have been relegated to the supporting cast”) and NBC News (“white women who voted for Trump . . . clearly have no issue with the president’s openly misogynistic behavior, his demeaning of female reporters and his mocking of [Christine Blasey] Ford”).

A writer for The Root castigated Taylor Swift because “like some white women, she uses her privilege to not be involved until she’s directly affected.” Talia Lavin, the New Yorker fact-checker who resigned in June after erroneously suggesting that an ICE agent (who turned out to be a combat-wounded Marine Corps veteran) had a Nazi tattoo, continues to contribute to The New Yorker and tells her 51,000 Twitter followers, “patriarchy won’t protect you no matter how hard white women fight for it.” “White women use strategic tears to silence women of colour,” ran a headline in the Guardian. On the basis of five phone calls, plus the story of what happened to Emmett Till in 1955, Rolling Stone published an essay entitled, “Why White Women Keep Calling the Police on Black People,” blaming them for “a new 21st century version of Jim Crow.” 

It goes on and on, and is well worth your time to click over and read in full, which is a rare thing at the National Review these days.

So all you white guys out there who have been getting blamed for literally everything from global warming to the heartbreak of psoriasis to the Cowboys being such a lousy football team for the past 20 years (hey, Jerry Jones is a white guy, after all), sit back, have a beer and let your lawn grow as your wives, girlfriends and daughters have their reputations slandered by our fake news media for awhile.  But don’t get too complacent – all the SJWs and snowflakes will be coming back sooner or later to blame you for all their problems, because, well, they have to blame someone other than themselves, because the alternative would be taking responsibility for their own actions.

You know that isn’t in the cards.

[Update] The President tweeted this shortly after Today’s Campaign Update went live:

As I’ve repeatedly noted, President Trump doesn’t just tweet this stuff out for no reason.  We should all note that he sees all the GOP internal polling – and probably much of the Democrat internal polling – coming in from all over the country, so he knows how voter attitudes are shifting in the wake of the Kavanaugh smear.

It’s also important to note that it generally takes 10 days to 2 weeks for shifts due to major events like the Kavanaugh smear to fully show up in the polling data, so we will start seeing its full impact this week.  If, as the President says, something big is happening, even the fake polls from places like ABC and CNN will start showing it soon.

WATCH.

That is all.
