People are shaking their heads and wondering how these elected politicians actually believed things were going to improve when they cut police funding. Portland’s politicians were caught up in the fad of the day to defund police which they did by cutting $16 million from the police budget. And now Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler is wanting to add $2 million to the police budget.
A few hours after Joe Biden was inaugurated as President of the United States, Antifa and other left wing anarchists took to the streets of Portland celebrating the change of government. Sure they may have gotten a bit carried away and set fire to a few businesses. Sure they may have accidentally smashed some windows at the Democrat headquarters in the city, but it was part of the joyous and of course peaceful celebration. Thankfully, they were all wearing masks.
Anyone with a lick of common sense knew this months ago, but Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler has finally come to his senses and stated that rioting is bad, after Antifa and other left-wing anarchists attacked businesses and police in Portland on New Year’s Eve. This included the use of Molotov cocktails.
On Dec. 16, 2020, the Portland Police Bureau Chief Chuck Lovell publicly asked the community for help after shootings this year more than doubled the numbers recorded in 2019. According to reports much of the increase is gang related.

On Thanksgiving Day, Antifa, a left-wing anarchist group, attacked a veteran’s war memorial in Portland, toppling the statue on top and as well vandalizing several businesses in down town Portland. This even included a grocery store that openly supported the Black Lives Matter (BLM). Apparently, BLM is not radical enough. Even though one of its founder is a self-proclaimed “trained Marxist.” Breitbart explains what happened on Thanksgiving day: An Antifa group in Portland, Oregon, called for a Thanksgiving Eve attack on “symbols and structures of colonialism and capitalism.” The incited direct action led to the destruction and vandalism of a veterans’ war memorial and downtown businesses. PNY Youth Liberation Front, a group described as an Antifa group by independent journalist Andy Ngo, tweeted a call for a “decentralized anti-colonial day of action” on Thanksgiving Eve. The message began, “F**k Thanksgiving, f**k Black Friday!” READ: Portland Antifa Attack BLM-Supporting Grocery, War Memorial: ‘F**k Thanksgiving’ Andy Ngo videoed the vandalism (language warning): One Tweet summed it up well: Meanwhile, Oregon’s Democrat Gov. Kate Brown has set up …

Jo Ann Hardesty is a City Commissioner in Portland who has been pushing for the city to defund the police. She also oversees the city’s 911 dispatch system and does not want police sent on 911 calls that don’t involve actual crimes. But apparently that only applies to us commoners, because Hardesty recently called 911 on a Lyft driver.
When Portland’s city council recently voted not to defund the police, left-wing anarchists attacked the home of one of the city’s commissioners who voted against the funding cut.

I don’t think the irony was intentional, but last night, Halloween, Antifa and its ilk decided to hold a “Capitalism is scary” protest in Portland, that quickly escalated into a peaceful riot.

The damage was caused during the “Capitalism is Scary” march that began around 7:15 p.m. Saturday from Irving Park, Oregon Live reported. But as the group marched south to Portland’s convention center, some of the protesters smashed the windows of buildings, including a bank, a real estate agency, two phone company stores, a hotel and a Starbucks, the outlet reported.

According to Andy Ngo, a man was recently arrested for allegedly trying to set fire to a gas line for a hotel in Portland: I am not familiar with this type of stuff, but I suspect setting fire to a gas pipeline could be extremely dangerous.

Last night, left-wing extremists in Portland set fire inside an occupied condominium building. They also looted nearby stores brought out the furniture and set fire to it in the middle of the street. This happened as the Portland police decided stay hidden hoping the riot would de-escalate. Of course, it didn’t and police were forced to step in after they set a fire in the lobby of the condominium building. The Daily Wire reports: “A mass gathering devolved into a riot after individuals broke windows, burglarized a business, and lit a fire in an occupied apartment building,” the Portland Police Department said in a statement. “Some in the crowd began lighting off what appeared to be illegal commercial-grade fireworks. A fire was lit in a garbage can in the street. Some windows were broken and walls were defaced with graffiti .

Apparently, the rioting is continuing in Portland. I am not sure how many days this is now, but it must be well over two months. Meanwhile, the Democrat mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, who actually participated in one riot, keeps his head deeply buried in the sand. And apparently, the rioters have now turned their attention on a police precinct located in the suburbs of Portland. And the people of Portland are trying to stand up for their city. This includes two elderly women, who the rioters turned on. There is an old saying “cowards run in packs.” How many brave left-wing extremists does it take to assault and harass elderly women? One of the elderly women was apparently using a walker. The Daily Wire explains: Rioters again returned to the Portland Police Department’s East Precinct Thursday night, which is in a residential area, where they doused an elderly woman with paint and harassed another who was using a walker.

Ancient writers claimed that Nero played his fiddle as Rome burned to the ground in 64 AD. Despite these stories, many modern historians state it never happened. But if you want evidence that it did, you only have to watch America’s city mayors in action.

There was rioting overnight in Seattle, Washington and according to reports, this was not an accident. The Daily Mail describes what happened: A police precinct which was ‘occupied’ by protesters in Seattle for several weeks was briefly set ablaze on Sunday afternoon and 12 officers taken to hospital after protests descended into chaos. Rocks, bottles and an explosive device were hurled at officers, the police department said, after a peaceful protest calling for the abolition of federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, escalated dramatically. Around 1:30pm, a secondary group of demonstrators joined in, police said, and were seen carrying baseball bats. Notice how the Daily Mail said the peaceful protests quickly turned violent when a second group merged with the peaceful demonstrators. Would “peaceful” protestors bring explosive devices and bats to a peaceful demonstration? It is alleged that a small group of left-wing extremists are behind the Seattle violence. This is similar to what happened in Madison, Wisconsin when a 150 people broke off from a peaceful demonstration involving 1,000 people and starting looting and …

Reports are coming out that police in Portland, Oregon declared a demonstration, allegedly protesting police brutality, a riot after the protestors allegedly tried to burn down the Multnomah County Justice Center. Here is the important point, it only involved 200 people and many were intent on violence. The police media release on the riot stated: Officers began dispersing the crowd in an effort to move them from the immediate area. During this lawful action, the demonstrators were very hostile and violent towards officers. An open pocket knife was thrown at an officer, coming within inches from striking them. Demonstrators continued to throw large rocks and full cans, as well as shot off commercial grade fireworks towards officers. This is very similar to what happened in Madison, Wisconsin when about 150 people broke off from a peaceful demonstration numbering 1,000 and began rioting, setting fires, vandalizing and looting businesses. There are clearly two groups involved in the demonstrations. Those that peacefully want to protest and a much smaller minority allegedly composed of anarchists and Marxists intent …
