CHOP Chopped: Hypocrite Seattle Mayor Finally Lets Cops do Their Jobs

Jenny Durkan to the rescue! er, three weeks late… – It turns out that all you had to do to get the CHOP cleared out of the midst of Seattle was to send in the police in force, and do it before noon, while all the depraved occupants were still sleeping.

This morning, after a fellow Marxist on the Seattle City Council had organized a protest action in front of the Mayor’s home, she sent in the cavalry to rid her city of the armed militants who had illegally occupied the area for the past month or so. Obviously, the only way to convince a commie Democrat mayor to let the police do their jobs is to make he or she feel personally threatened, a mistake the Antifa/BLM thugs made Sunday evening.

Thus, at about 5:00 PT this morning, the nitwit Marxist Mayor issued this executive order:

Moments later, the legal residents of the CHOP area were treated scenes like these:

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best – who has been prevented from doing her job for the past month by the nitwit Marxist Mayor – issued the following statement as her officers went about their business:

Image

So, the filth and vermin are being cleaned off the streets and, as noted above, at least 20 of the agitators have been arrested. Given that Seattle most likely has a Democrat district attorney who is bought and paid for by George Soros front groups, it is highly unlikely that any of those 20 will do any real jail time unless there are charged with federal crimes by the FBI agents who reportedly accompanied the local police this morning.

Now all of the brain-dead nitwit Seattle residents who elected all of these Marxist Democrat leaders in the first place can go back to living their brain-dead lives and cast more brain-dead votes for Marxist Democrats this November. Because they’re too brain-dead to understand that that’s how they got into this situation in the first place.

And so it goes.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: CHOP Chopped, Dems Kill Police Reform, and BLM is Antifa

And thus the CHAZ/CHOP dies not with a bang, but with a whimper. – Seattle’s CHAZ/CHOP zone that has been supported and nurtured by Mayor Jenny Durkin and other depraved Democrat officials in the city and state governments appears to have run out of steam. The juvenile delinquent leaders of that Marxist armed insurrection on U.S. soil issued this unintentionally hilarious statement filled with Marxist jargon last night:

Image

Note the endorsements at the end for Mayor Durkin, Washington Governor Jay Inslee,  and Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden. You support any of these Democrat politicians at your own personal peril. The Democrat Party is the real virus infecting America today.

And now it is time for the lawsuits! – Man, nobody could’ve seen this coming, right?

Hard to imagine why these business owners are upset. I mean, look at the courteous treatment the CHAZ/CHOP sub-humans gave to this particular local business owner trapped inside their zone:

Again, you support any Democrat politician at your own personal peril and the peril of your country’s survival. Stop doing it.

Meanwhile, this great American has had quite enough of the BLM/Antifa CHOP terrorists:

Democrats don’t really want police reform. – Just in case you thought the Democrats were serious about federal police reforms, well, think again. Yesterday they killed the only chance of that happening this year.

From a report by USA Today:

Senate Democrats on Wednesday blocked a police reform package they argue does not go far enough in implementing changes needed in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

The measure failed 55-45, delivering a blow to the momentum on Capitol Hill to enact changes and likely lowering the chances that Congress will move on policing legislation before the November elections.

“I don’t know what it’s gonna take to wake up,” Sen. Tim Scott,of South Carolina, the sole Black Republican in the Senate, said during an impassioned speech. “We’ll move on. People will forget about it. You know what’s gonna happen? Something bad – and we’ll be right back here talking about what should have been done, what could have been done, why we must act now.”

[End]

Senator Scott, who has had to deal with the most repugnant racist attacks on his character from Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin as this bill’s sponsor, is of course correct. Congress will move on and that’s exactly what the Democrats want to happen on this issue: Nothing.

The reason why is simple: Because they would not be able to take credit for it. With Democrats, everything is a political calculation, nothing more. If you vote for them, you do so at your own peril. Stop doing it.

If you still hold a favorable opinion of Black Lives Matter, you might want to actually pay attention here for once. – I have been telling you since the start of these riots that there is no real difference between the goals of Antifa and those of Black Lives Matter. They are both domestic terror groups created to be the armed forces of the Democrat Party, both are funded by George Soros front organizations, and both are led by Marxist/anarchist radicals whose goal is the destruction of the United States as a constitutional Republic.

For all intents and purposes, they are one and the same. Hawk Newsome, who says he is the “leader” of BLM in New York, just laid every bit of that reality out for you last night on Fox News with host Martha MacCallum.

You don’t have to believe me, just believe his own words, as reported by DailyWire:

MacCallum began the interview by noting Newsome’s apparent support for using violence to achieve political goals. “Obviously people watch what you say in that video, that you now want to shove legislation down people’s throats now that you have everyone’s attention, and you also have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations,” said MacCallum. “What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?”

“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that because this country is built upon violence,” said Newsome. “What was the American Revolution? What’s our … diplomacy across the globe? We go in and blow up countries and we replaced their leaders with leaders who would like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent, it’s extremely hypocritical.”

Newsome went on to frame his support of using violence as promoting “self-defense,” stating, “it seems to be the hypocrisy of America that when black people start talking about arming themselves and defending themselves, the talk is violent, but when white people grab assault rifles and go to our nation state capitals, it’s all good.”

“The only reason I posed that first question to you the way that I did it, I watched you talking on a bunch of different interviews today and you said, ‘burn it down,’” MacCallum said. “You said it, ‘burn it down, it’s time.’ So that makes me think that you want to ‘burn it down.’”

If this country doesn’t give us what we want then we will burn down the system and replace it,” Newsome responded.

[End]

Do you get it now? Or are Mr. Newsome and a group of his fellow terrorists going to have to arrive at your front door and demand you sign over ownership of it before you figure it out? This is not complicated, folks.

About that Emancipation Memorial… – Newsome’s fellow BLM thugs promised on Tuesday to show up at the Emancipation Memorial in Washington DC’s Lincoln Park tonight at 7:00 ET to attempt to destroy it. You can be sure President Trump will not allow that planned event to take place.

Meanwhile, take a break from being filled with despicable lies about this monument by CNN and the rest of the depraved national news media, and watch as one great American explains why a group of freed slaves funded that project in the first place:

God bless this beautiful lady for standing up to the mob.

Tuesday News Roundup: Durkin and the CHOP; Bubba and the Noose; and Kimmel and the Cancel Culture

#CancelKimmel is trending on the Twitters… – So, it looks like late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel – who was actually funny when he co-hosted a game show with Ben Stein 20 years ago – is going to be the next career fatality to the social media cancel culture.

It turns out that Kimmel has dressed up in black face more often than Virginia Governor Ralph Northam did in college, and now a video of him using the “n-word” several times while impersonating Snoop Dog and black comedian George Wallace has gone viral. Honestly, it’s really pretty amazing it has taken this long for the cancel culture to catch up with Kimmel, given that he spent half a decade hosting something called “The Man Show” during which he spent an hour each weak objectifying women and looking up their skirts while they jumped on trampolines. But hey, that whole #MeToo deal wasn’t really about protecting women at all, as things have turned out.

But of course, being an un-funny critic of President Trump has its benefits, one of which is that your past sorry behavior doesn’t impact you – that is, until the video of you using the wrong word while imitating a hip-hop artist goes viral. Then you’re in trouble, at least for a little while.

The strange case of Bubba Wallace and the Noose. – Apparently, there are no security cameras at Talladega Raceway, which is passing strange in this age of technology. At least, that seems to be what you are expected to believe in the increasingly odd case of Bubba Wallace and the Noose.

Mind you, Bubba Wallace, a terrific champion NASCAR driver who happens to be the one and only African American on the circuit, never saw any noose. Supposedly, a member of Wallace’s team found it in an area that is restricted to only certified NASCAR personnel, and that also is where all of the incredibly expensive equipment is stored. That would imply high security, which must surely mean the presence of security cameras.

Yet, unlike seemingly every other crime committed in America today, no video of any suspects has been made public. In fact, FBI personnel who are normally extremely anxious to get their faces on TV with accompanying security video to display for the media are mysteriously quiet about the whole thing thus far. Two days down the road, we also don’t know the name of the Wallace team member who found the noose or any NASCAR official who says they saw it.

But who knows? Maybe this is the one incident during Christopher Wray’s tenure at the FBI in which the agents involved take the approach that solving the crime is more important than milking it for publicity.

In the meantime, NASCAR itself is milking the incident for all of the publicity possible, with every driver at Talladega engaging in a show of support for Wallace that, if this noose incident is real, was very moving and unifying.

Sad as this sounds, let’s hope it is a real incident, because if this turns out be some ham-fisted attempt by some idiot or group of idiots to burnish NASCAR’s cred with the woke crowd – similar to the whole Jussie Smollet situation – it will almost certainly come to light and would be incredibly tragic.

And now a word from your President… – At long last, President Trump appears to have grown weary of watching Democrat mayors and governors sit idly by while the American Taliban made up of Antifa and BLM tears down historical monuments. He issued these tweets as this piece was being compiled:

And now another word from your President… – This one appears to presage an effort by the Department of Justice to follow up on the government’s win in court on Saturday. In his decision on the Bolton case, Federal Judge Royce Lamberth noted that Bolton’s reckless disregard for national security by including highly-classified information in his book opens him and his publisher up to a government seizure of all proceeds derived from its sale:

Cool.

And now a word from the most pathetic nitwit in America… – With the CHOP’s “Summer of Love” – as it was described a week ago by Seattle’s dim Mayor Jenny Durkin – very predictably devolving into violence and chaos, the Mayor who facilitated it all for the last month announced late Monday that she would finally, at long last do her job, but not before three people had been shot and one killed.

From a report at Fox News:

Seattle will move to end the police-free zone known as the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest,” or “CHOP,” after two recent shootings, one of which was deadly, Mayor Jenny Durkan announced Monday — signaling that a stunning chapter in the city’s history could be drawing to a close.

The mayor said the violence was distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters seeking to address racial inequity and police brutality. Activists set up “CHOP” in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood about two weeks ago, barricading off the area after police evacuated a ransacked precinct building there.

“The cumulative impacts of the gatherings and protests and the nighttime atmosphere and violence has led to increasingly difficult circumstances for our businesses and residents,” Durkan said at a news conference. “The impacts have increased and the safety has decreased.”

That last sentence is just priceless, given that this despicable leftist Democrat knew from day 1 exactly how this would all go. Let’s remember that she literally facilitated everything that has happened in the CHOP by ordering her Chief of Police to stand down as the violent rioters seized the department’s 3rd Precinct station, which lies within the CHOP area. She allowed these violent radicals to illegally seize control of all private property within that zone, shutting down an array of businesses and preventing residents in the apartments and condos there from the peaceful use of their homes.’

When it comes time for the government to prosecute the leaders of this armed insurrection on U.S. soil, Durkin herself would be at the top of the list if we lived in a just society.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: CHOP Shooting, BLM Marxists, Roosevelt Statue, and NYC/Chi Murder Race

All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men and women to sit silently by and do nothing. – Anyone who thought that the American Taliban’s – aka, Antifa/BlackLivesMatter – efforts to tear down monuments and erase U.S. history would be limited to heroes of the Confederacy was living in a fantasy world.

Over the past few weeks, they came for Christopher Columbus, and good men and women did nothing to stop them.

Then they came for Thomas Jefferson, and good men and women did nothing.

Next they came for George Washington, and good men and women did nothing.

Now, they have come for Teddy Roosevelt, and good men and women are nowhere to be found to defend him. The target over the weekend is the magnificent statue of the progressive Republican President who is responsible for tens of millions of acres of National Parks and National Monuments as well as the nation’s anti-trust laws, which has sat in front of New York’s Museum of Natural History since 1940.

Teddy Roosevelt Statue at Museum of Natural History to Be Removed

Activists have for years claimed that the images of the Native American and African American walking astride Roosevelt’s horse are somehow demeaning, although both are rendered as proud, noble and strong. Both the museum and the city have resisted removing the statue for many years due to public opposition to the move, but over the past few weeks, the impulse to engage in virtue signaling obviously just became too strong.

So, Roosevelt is gone, and in a week few will even remember this happened.

What will they go after next? This is entirely predictable: The major monuments in Washington, DC, the U.S. Constitution, your guns and your churches. If you doubt me, just sit back and do nothing and watch.

Oh, and in case you missed it, the founder of Black Lives Matter admits she is a “trained Marxist”:

Because of course she is. You will never see this reported on CNN or MSNBC.

Defund the police? Here’s what you get. – Speaking of New York City, Marxist Mayor Bill De Blasio’s policies of releasing hundreds of felons from Rikers Island and defunding his police department have led to a very predictable outcome: The Big Apple is starting to look a lot like Baltimore and Chicago.

As reported by the New York Post:

The New York City Police Department is investigating more than a dozen shootings that took place in 24 hours.

Authorities say at least 19 people have been injured during shootings Saturday across the city’s boroughs.

The violence comes as the city sees a spike in shootings following the New York City Police Department disbanding the plainclothes unit last Monday.

There were 28 shooting incidents with 38 victims from last Monday to Friday, compared to only 12 during the same week last year, according to the New York Post.

[End]

Actions have consequences. New Yorkers elected this evil buffoon not once, but twice, so they get what they deserve. But it is sad to see this once-great city descending back into the pits of hell from which Rudy Giuliani rescued it just 20 years ago.

The “good news” for New Yorkers is that they still have a ways to go to catch up with Chicago. – The bad news is that De Blasio will keep doubling down on evil policies until his city is #1.

Over the father’s day weekend, 101 Chicago residents were shot, and at least 14 have died at last count, although the bodies are still being counted, so that number could still rise.

From a report in the Chicago Sun-Times:

Chicago saw its highest number of shootings victims in a single weekend this year with 101 people shot across the city from Friday evening to Monday morning, 14 of them fatally. Five of those killed were minors.

The latest child fatality happened early Monday in Austin on the West Side.

Two boys, 15 and 16, were walking in an alley at 12:18 a.m. in the 4700 block of West Superior Street when someone fired at them, possibly from a gray sedan, according to Chicago police. The 15-year-old was shot in his leg, chest and abdomen. He was taken to Stroger Hospital and pronounced dead. The other boy, 16, was hit in the ankle and taken to Stroger Hospital in fair condition.

A 13-year-old girl was killed and two other teens were wounded Saturday night in Austin on the West Side.

The girl was inside a home about 8:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of North LeClaire Avenue when the shots were fired, and she was struck in the neck, police said. She was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified her as Amaria J. Jones.

Two boys, 15 and 16, were sitting on a porch when one of them noticed a red laser pointing at him and heard gunfire, police said. The younger boy was struck in the back and the older boy was struck in the leg. They were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

A 3-year-old boy was fatally wounded about two hours earlier when someone opened fire at his father while they were driving in Austin.

The toddler, identified as Mekay James, was struck in the back about 6:25 p.m. when someone in a blue Honda pulled behind the black SUV the boy’s 27-year-old father was driving in the 600 block of North Central Avenue and fired several rounds, authorities said.

A police source said the father was believed to be the intended target of the shooting.

[End]

It’s a war zone, folks, and the city is saddled with an abject lunatic – Lori Lightfoot – in charge. America’s great cities – all run by Democrat political machines for decades – are dying.

The “Summer of Love” continues in Seattle. – Yet another shooting took place in the so-called CHOP zone in Seattle last night:

So, two nights, two shootings, one dead, two in critical condition in a local hospital. It’s like a three square-block version of De Blasio’s pit of hell.

But still, the mayor and governor do nothing.

Democrats: Can’t live with them, would love to live without them.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Tulsa Rally, Chop Murder, Barr-Berman Battle and Bad Lindsey Graham

Happy Father’s Day, y’all! – It wasn’t an entirely happy Father’s Day eve for President Donald Trump in Tulsa yesterday.  After all of the buildup and the hype about have a million requests for tickets, it appeared that no more than 15-20,000 people congregated in downtown Tulsa on Saturday, with only about 10,000 able to ultimately make their way into the BOK Center by 7:00 ET, when the doors were closed as the event began.

The massive COVID-19 fear porn campaign mounted by the corrupt news media obviously had its intended effect to diminish the turnout. Once the entries to the area opened, the combination of having to test everyone’s temperature and screen them through security, along with a group of Antifa/BLM thugs who forced the closing of one of the entry points, made the process too slow to get everyone inside to fill the arena.

None of that impacted the President’s mood once he took the stage, though. He was as animated as ever, and held the crowd’s rapt attention for 2 solid hours, like Paul McCartney does on is concert tours. But the media reports won’t focus on that – they’ll focus exclusively on the turnout, because that is what they do.

And they certainly will never show you this photo of the campaign “rally” held by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden earlier on Saturday:

Seriously, he’s better off in the basement.

One more note about Tulsa. – The city and state governments, led by Republicans, did their jobs of keeping their streets peaceful and safe both for the attendees and for the public at-large. It was a stark contrast to the refusal of Democrat mayors and governors to do their respective duties in places like Minneapolis, New York, Portland, Atlanta and Chicago in recent weeks.

That of course is another aspect of Saturday’s events you will not see any corrupt news outlet report on today.

In other news… – In one of many interesting parts of the President’s speech, he talked about Seattle’s CHOP, or as the town’s nitwit Mayor calls it, “The Summer of Love.” That lovefest produced a murder Friday night in which one person was shot and killed and another lies in critical condition in a local hospital. When police attempted to enter the “cop-free zone” to investigate, they were met with a roadblock of violent thugs.

Sara Jean Green | The Seattle Times

In his speech, the President said that he has repeatedly offered to bring in the National Guard and clear the place out, but the leftist mayor has refused to do anything. From a report at Breitbart:

“I have an offer out. I said any time you want, we will come in and straighten it out in one hour or less,” Trump said at his rally.

“Now I may be wrong, but it’s probably better for us to just watch that disaster. Let it simmer for a while. Let them see what radical left Democrats will do to our country.”

[End]

From a strategic political standpoint, that’s probably right. But from the standpoint of ensuring that all Americans – including those Americans who live and own businesses inside the CHOP – have their constitutional rights protected, it is not.

When they are sworn into office, elected members of city and state governments swear they will do their duty to ensure those rights are protected. The city and state governments in Seattle and Washington have abandoned that duty. While the system of federalism obligates the President to afford those lower officials every opportunity to do their jobs, at some point he has a similar obligation to act.

In addition to the illegal seizure of property, we’ve already had one murder and reports by the Seattle Chief of Police of multiple rapes and assaults taking place in the “Summer of Love.” The President will have to decide how much more of this lawlessness he is willing to tolerate before taking action, because it is obvious that the local government and Governor Jay Inslee just don’t give a damn.

“I won’t quit! Wait, you’re firing me? You can’t fire me! I quit!” – That was pretty much exactly how Saturday went for now ex-SDNY U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman. As reported here on Saturday morning, Berman refused his opportunity to resign gracefully after it was offered to him by Attorney General William Barr Friday afternoon.

Early Saturday afternoon, Barr sent Berman a letter that said, in effect, ok, then, you’re fired effective immediately. Hilariously, realizing that he is in fact screwed to the wall here, Berman then responded with this:

So, having forfeited his only graceful means of exit, Berman resorts to just making one up.  Either way, he’s gone and that’s a very good thing for America.

Bad Lindsey Graham to the rescue! – For the Democrats, that is. After Berman’s firing was announced and Barr made clear that the President intends to nominate Jay Clayton, the current chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to replace him, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, quickly stepped in to provide a roadblock of his own.

It is very telling that Graham’s very first reaction to all of this is to announce that he will stand on archaic Senate procedure to obstruct Clayton’s nomination. Graham falsely stated that he has always respected the Senate’s “blue-slip” tradition in such nominations, in which home state senators must signal their approval before any nominee can move forward. Thus, he in effect provides New York Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand with veto power over Clayton’s nomination.

Graham has in fact completely ignored objections by home-state senators in the cases of multiple federal judge nominees over the past 18 months. Further, Democrats have ignored this “tradition” en masse when both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama moved to willy-nilly fire almost every incumbent U.S. Attorney they inherited and replace them all. Graham was actually in the Senate when that happened in 2009 and was completely submissive to it.

But now that a Republican President wants to replace a single corrupt U.S. attorney, Bad Lindsey Graham decides he simply must stand on stupid, non-productive Senate ceremony. Because of course he does.

As Tucker Carlson tells you almost every night of the week on his show, the GOP caucus in the congress is little more than a collection of useless gas bags, and Senator Graham may well be the worst of the entire lot.

*UPDATED* Saturday News Roundup: The Eyes of Texas, the Lies of Seattle and Trump Moves His Rally

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

Fun fact appropriate for this moment in our nation’s history. –  In addition to creating the Ku Klux Klan in the wake of the Civil War and Antifa in the wake of the 2016 election of Donald Trump, the Democrat Party is also responsible for conducting the longest filibuster in our nation’s history. It lasted 75 full days as the nation – especially African Americans – cried out for real, meaningful social change.

The subject of that 75 day long Democrat filibuster? The Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Oh.

Here is one way the current fight for change in local policing is being trivialized. – Some football players at The University of Texas are circulating a petition to make several changes on the UT campus, including changing the names of some buildings that frankly should have been changed a long time ago and removing some statues from the campus that some find offensive.

Here’s the list of demands in the petition:

Image

One building on campus, for example, is named for Theophilus Painter, a former UT president. In 1946, Painter denied admission to Heman Sweatt to the UT school of law, where he would have become the law school’s first black student. Mr. Sweatt was fully qualified but for the fact that he was African American. Sweatt, represented by Thurgood Marshall, filed suit in a case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where UT lost. The case later became the basis for the 1954 Brown v. the Board of Education decision that led to the desegregation of America’s schools. Marshall, of course, later became the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

So, changing the name of Painter Hall seems like a really fine idea.

But it’s the last element of a pretty long petition that is getting most of the attention. That demand would ban the singing of the traditional school song “The Eyes of Texas,” a song that has no racial connotations whatsoever. The reason the football players and others want to ban the song? It was once sung by students in black face participating in an on-campus minstrel show in 1903.

“The Eyes of Texas” is a song that has been sung by every UT fan, player, student and teacher in attendance at every athletic event for more than a century now. If the leaders at UT accede to this particular wish, they might as well abolish the athletics program.

Some demands are appropriate; some are not. Placing this particular item in the petition – which of course was drafted for the players by radical activists – is done simply to inflame emotions and only ends up trivializing the entire thing and demonstrates clearly that this is not a sincere demand for justice but an effort by leftists to inflame and divide. But we already knew that, didn’t we?

Ok, fine. Time to bring out the water cannons, then. – I kid you not, a federal judge in Washington state ruled yesterday that Seattle police cannot use tear gas or other similar means of crowd control when they finally, at long last move to clear the armed insurrection taking place in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) occupied by Antifa. Judge Jones is an appointee not of Barack Obama, as one would expect, but of George W. Bush. So, the Bush family strikes again.

Blame the voters. – If you want to know why Seattle was the first city hit with this kind of action from Antifa, I give you City Council member Kshama Sawant, a Democrat who describes herself on her Twitter profile as “Seattle City Councilmember ~ Socialist ~ Member of Socialist Alternative and AFT 1789.”

Ok, then. City councils in big cities all over the country are chock-full of Soros-funded radicals just like Ms. Sawant.

Councilwoman Sawant is the person who actually gave Antifa the keys to Seattle’s City Hall, which is part of the CHAZ. This anti-American lunatic was elected by the majority of of voters in her council precinct.  So hey, the people of Seattle are getting what they asked for, whether they knew they were asking for it or not. If they’re too stupid to take this as an object lesson and elect someone else next time, then they deserve no support from the rest of the country.

This won’t mollify the media, but it’s a smart move. – Late last night, President Trump issued the following set of tweets:

It’s really kind of amazing to me that someone in the Trump Campaign thought scheduling this kickoff rally on Juneteenth was a smart idea in the first place, given the current national situation. It’s very likely that no one made the connection, which is an indication that the President has a big hole in his operation and needs to fill it with someone who understands the Black community.

I find it interesting that the President refers to Juneteenth as the “Juneteenth Holiday” in that first tweet. It would be a stroke of absolute political genius for the President to issue an executive order this weekend proclaiming Juneteenth, which celebrates the day that Union general Gordon Granger read orders in Galveston, Texas, that all previously enslaved people in Texas were free, to be a national holiday, and which challenges congress to memorialize the proclamation into federal law.

I can’t help wondering if that is what he has in mind. We’ll see.

*UPDATE* – Here is why Juneteenth, an event that took place in Texas, has always had national significance in the Black culture.

Because Texas was a far western outpost for the confederacy and little fighting took place here, there was virtually no union army presence in the state until the war was over to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation Lincoln issued in 1863. So, although the practice of keeping slaves was much more rare in Texas than in the other Southern states, Texas was basically the final holdout of slave owners who refused to set their slaves free. The significance of Granger’s statement is that he read it as he landed in Galveston with a garrison of Union soldiers whose job it was to ensure all slaves in the state were in fact freed.

Thus, the national significance of Juneteenth.

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.

That is all.

Larry Schweikart: How Trump has Re-Shaped the American Electorate

[Note: Larry Schweikart, America’s History Teacher and author/co-author of several best selling books, is a frequent contributor here at The Campaign Update. This morning he posted a terrific thread on Twitter containing an array of insights on current events and the 2020 election dynamics, which I am reproducing here with his permisssion.]

3) How do you know Trump has largely won on both issues? They ain’t in the news.

4) When was the last time you heard about the Wall? DemoKKKrats know they cannot stop it now. They’ve given up even trying. Trump pulled off a master move in funding it through the Pentagon.

5) On trade/outsourcing, Trump proved that, yes, he did have a magic wand and yes some of the jobs did come back & were coming back steadily before China retaliated with the China Virus.

6) But DemoKKKrats know in any kind of “normal” economy, MANY of those jobs will come back.

7) I am convinced this is partly the reason for the heightened Kushner attacks last week. DemoKKKrats are still (unsuccessfully) trying to drive a wedge between the jobs/trade side of MAGA and the immigration side.

8) BTW, where is Menopausal Ann [Coulter] on this? Where is DACA?

9) DemoKKKrats have totally dropped DACA cuz they lost.

10) What is the significance of the illegal slowdown? Of the DACA loss?

11) It has spurred the DemoKKKrats even more to try to find other voters to replace them.

12) DemoKKKrats’ black support is slowly eroding.

13) Just like whites, you will see a MAGA black side (most still will out of safety concerns not say this openly) and a (yes, much larger) BLM side.

14) On the MAGA side will be business owners, middle and aspiring middle class blacks, & blue collar workers.

15) Not surprisingly, while the percentages will be different, the black community will (finally) come to resemble the white community in that you’ll have snowflake BLM/college educated blacks robotized by “higher ed” & you’ll have “practical blacks” who’ve seen the Ds do nothing.

16) There is plenty of poll support for this second group of MAGA blacks to be anywhere from 15-25% of the black electorate, but there is good reason to think there is another skeptical layer that will always just stay home rather than keep voting for liars.

17) As @helloitsthao  [Thao Nguyen] points out, this is creating a “donut” where elements of inner cities & outer ring/rural whites vote MAGA and the inner suburb snowflake Karens vote Whackadoodle Lib.

18) However, in the bigger picture, Trump has totally destroyed the DemoKKKrats’ next 50 years of voter base with sharply curtailing illegals & by attracting “practical black” votes.

19) The DemoKKKrats had to go somewhere.

20) Enter the Snowflake Karens.

21) The dual edged sword of China Virus fear porn & the shaming-on-steroids BLM hate movement have thus far succeeded with that inner ring. Most urban-dwelling college educated now hate Trump (rural do not). This is largely out of fear-shaming by SJWs now joined by the corporates.

22) Oh, here are two Larry Schweikart prophecies: First, the NFL WILL sport some sort of BLM logo on helmets & uniforms this fall. (Your response: “Well, I’ll just watch college football.”) Not so fast. VERY SOON, maybe this year you’ll also see the colleges go full BLM in their sports.

22) contd. Second, the 15% movement, where bidnesses are shamed into saying they will purchase/use suppliers who are black owned by the rate of 15%? Soon BLM will demand 30%. Then 60%. Then 100%. NO. NUMBER. WILL. EVER. BE. ENOUGH.

23) Allow me to quote from “A Patriot’s History of the United States” by Schweikart and Michael Allen: [1960’s radical] Jerry Rubin explainedSatisfy our demands & we go twelve more… All we want from these meetings are demands that are never ‘reasonable’. When the demands reached the point that no rational university administrator [OR, I WOULD ADD TODAY, CITY OR BUSINESS LEADER] or public official could possibly comply with them,’ Rubin noted, “Then we scream, righteously angry . . . . Goals are irrelevant. The tactics, the actions are critical.”

24) Of course, Rubin wasn’t entirely honest. No leftists are. He meant that short-term goals were irrelevant, but the destabilization of society as a long-term objective was entirely relevant.

25) The last people to figure this out are liberals. That’s why in communist society they are the first ones shot and imprisoned. They are sheep, baffled by the fact that the “movement” has turned on them. Conservatives & advocates of freedom fought, ran, or hid for far longer.

26) In conclusion, the NFL, the NBA, the City of Seattle, the City of New York, the City of Chicago et al. are all on borrowed time. There will be “twelve more demands.”

[End]

That is all.
