20 vs 1: Portland mayor pushes to refund police

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.

Portland: Antifa peacefully celebrates Biden’s inauguration

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.

Antifa launches Thanksgiving Day attack in Portland

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.

Oh, the irony: They claim ‘Capitalism is scary’

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 New York Post explains what happened: Police declared a march against capitalism and police violence a riot in Portland, Oregon, after demonstrators smashed the windows of businesses and threw projectiles at cops. 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 a report on WND, a left-leaning mayoral candidate in Portland, Oregon, Sarah Innarone, was seen in public wearing a skirt made up of images of two of communism’s largest mass murderers, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong. It is estimated that Stalin was responsible for well over 20 million deaths in the Soviet Union and Mao upwards of 65 million deaths in China.

Portland: Man arrested for allegedly trying to set fire to hotel gas line?

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. Andy Ngo then cited a tweet of the woman who allegedly reported the incident. The police told her that the local DA would probably just release the guy in a few days: Not sure this is related, but….

Portland: Peaceful rioters set fire to apartment building

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.

Left-wing anarchists storm Portland suburbs

According to a report on Fox News, last night (Aug. 15-16, 2020) Portland police were forced to ignore over sixty 911 calls as officers were needed to deal with rioters.

PORTLAND: Cowards run in packs

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. Once again, the Portland Police Department was forced to declare a supposed protest an “unlawful …

Violence, chaos, fires, death as city mayors fiddle

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. Not only are some mayors standing back and allowing the rioting to take place by hamstringing their police, others have actually voiced their support and one mayor even participated in a riot.

Seattle: Are Left-wing extremists instigating riots?

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 …

Report: Militant left-wing radicals behind Portland riots

A recent report suggests that a group of militant left-wing radicals are behind the violent protests in Portland, Oregon. Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler tweeted how bad it is: However, the violence and rioting has been going on for months, and many are blaming Wheeler for the escalation taking place in 2020. News Week reports: On numerous occasions, the mayor [Ted Wheeler] has publicly politicized the police department, and at times appeared to legitimize far-left protesters. In summer 2018, Wheeler allegedly prohibited Portland police from responding to a siege of the local Immigration and Customs Enforcement office by hundreds of protesters. READ: Why Portland Police Stand By Passively When Leftists Riot Fox News reports on one of the groups behind the rioting taking place in 2020: The Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front, a group comprised of anti-capitalist and anti-fascist teens, has been blamed for playing a major role in the weeks of unrest unfolding in Portland, a report Sunday said.
