Why Trump Isn't Taking Action in Seattle

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 6/23/2020 9:29:54 PM

It’s certainly frustrating to watch a pack of reeking leftist (Snip) declare a portion of an American city an “autonomous zone” – what is it with Democrats and their secession fetish? – but do not get frustrated because Donald Trump has not sent the 101st Airborne in to powerwash the human grunge from Seattle’s feces-bedecked streets. That’s what the Democrats want. And Trump--a better strategic thinker than all the media geniuses, hack politicians, and Afghan War-losing generals who cry about him--is not only not going to give them the victory they crave. He’s going to jam their cheesy plan down their throats.


The author’s assessment of the Left wanting to provoke an overreaction by PresidentTrump holds merit; their goal is November victory and “everything happening right now part of their overall strategy to achieve that objective.” Mr.Schlichter describes two types of operations he believes are relevant right now, kinetic and information; actual warfare and violence versus an information operation. Thus far, PresidentTrump’s responses have been carefully weighed, timed, and administered--a brilliant and trusted leader. A quotation by PresidentAbraham Lincoln seems quite fitting for PresidentTrump: “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

President Trump is allowing the entire nation see what happens under democrat "leadership" in places like Seattle, Chicago, NY City and DC. Democrats and the news media can't hide it.

The mayor of Seattle thinks "they" will simply abandon their summer camp and everything will be fine and dandy. And their little hissy fit will be quicky forgotten by the masses. I am not so sure the children will slink home. Not so sure they want to appear weak or failing on their little marxist adventure. She has been wrong since day one so no reason to think she can sweep this under the Seattle rug. This is her manure pile and no one deserves it more than she does. Don't know when she is up for re-election but I see her own stupid words being used against her. No need for the federal government to step in. She is obviously a superior political force. You go girl. The summer of love awaits you.

Everyone who lives in one of these cities who lost their business or job because of these destructive riots, and the complete lack of action and permissive atmosphere encouraged by the Democratic leadership, will not forget nor forgive the Dems for allowing their life's work to be sacrificed for political tokenship. All this unrest -and violence is front-and-center on the networks to ensure the country is in a constant state of unrest right up to the election in an effort to help Biden. Those polls showing Trump behind Biden? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The very same pollsters were giving Hillary a 98% chance of victory the morning of the election! Trump will mop the floor with Biden-the real hope is to regain the House. Hopefully this time the Repubs will actually bust their asses and close all the immigration loopholes, punish China for spreading Covid, and prosecute those traitors who tried to have Trump thrown out of office. I'm sure they can think of a few other things too.

Trump is right. The left wants another Kent State or, better yet a Waco (remember the Democrat Janet Reno caused that butchery. He’s showing the country what control by the left will look like. The little white snowflakes in CHAZ are also finding out what life under black warlords will be like. ROTFLMAO.

Consider this: How about a nationwide ballot question in the November election. 'Do you approve of federal funds being used to rebuild the public areas that were damaged by the protesters?'

The socialist catastrophe in Seattle's twin city of Caracas and the rest of Venezula is a preview of what we can expect to happen in our country if the anarchist Antifa and BLM thugs continue their destruction. I believe that sane, honest and patriotic Americans will prevail against the scourge attacking us in so many leftist places but it will take patience as we are not only fighting these destructive forces but also their leftist media allies.

That’s because he wants it to play out to the bitter end on its own at the hands of the mayor and governor in charge. The longer it goes the worse it gets and Trump will capitalize on the collateral damage.

I keep putting myself in the shoes of someone who owns a property or business inside of Chazistan. But the reality is that there is probably not anyone in there that did not vote for both this mayor and this governor. If nothing else, it will educate those at risk in the importance of their choices. But the rest of America doesn't need a lesson in how socialism destroys. We can look to Venezuela for that.

Meanwhile, for the second week in a row, the Mayor of Seattle has promised to clean out the protestors (Commie Agitators) occupying Chaz/Chop, but in reality has done nothing. It is a No-Go Zone, and the rapes, shootings, etc. are not even getting a police response. Regardless of the MSM attempts this whitewash the occupation as a peaceful protest, the truth is getting out there, and a majority of Americans are changing their votes as we speak.

The thugs in CHAZ are only hurting democrats, since Seattle is a democrat city. The citizens there voted the democrat leadership in and sanctioned the violence. They just didn't think it would ever affect themselves, just other more conservative areas. The liberals in Seattle have now experienced the kind of country they thought they wanted. What they have found out is that you can't allow evil to go unchecked, because it will eventually turn on you. Now, business is leaving the city, never to return. The citizens have an expensive mess to clean up. The city is cutting services across the board, to deal with budget shortfalls. Life in a socialist paradise must feel a little different to them now.

Boy, Trump has a plan. Trump is using this crap as a "teachable moment" and sometime in the future he will spring it on 'em and boy will they be shocked. I think Trump knows the military will not carry out orders he gives them. The governors of many states will just ignore him and continue with the destruction of America. The November election will have not effect on the march towards third world status for America. Meanwhile the coup attempt stuff has been abandoned. Flynn and Stone are still being screwed. But Trump has a plan. BS.

It's very clear that the leftist rioters are trying to trap the president in a Kent State moment. They will then cry out, "You see, we told you they were fascists." Watch those screaming in police officers' faces. No one is that angry. They are (a) being paid to act like this and (b) trying to prompt a response. Let the public see what the world of the left is really like and carry those memories into the ballot booth on November 3. The president must walk a very fine line--restore order as gently and promptly as possible in those places under his jurisdiction and, at the same time, give the dims enough rope to hang themselves. So far I think he's doing a good job. The dims' mad irrationality (taking down statues of abolitionists, e.g.) is there for all reasonable people to see.

The revolutionaries cannot make up their minds about what to call their conquest. I have a suggestion. Call it the Criminal Revolution Against the People; CRAP for short. It truly describes what they are making of the area they have conquered. One can only wonder about why the city’s government chose to surrender to and support this lawless mob.

Senator Sherrod Brown intends to push a similar resolution in the Senate.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — President Donald Trump’s plans to kick off Independence Day with a showy display at Mount Rushmore are drawing sharp criticism from Native Americans who view the monument as a desecration of land violently stolen from them and used to pay homage to leaders hostile to native people.

The event is slated to include fighter jets thundering over the 79-year-old stone monument in South Dakota's Black Hills

Former national security adviser Susan Rice said Monday that she is “humbled and honored” to be considered as a possible running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden. Asked by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow if she is “in talks with the Biden campaign,” Rice responded: “To the extent that it is reported that I am under consideration in a serious way for the vice president slot, let me just say that I’m extremely humbled and honored to be talked about in the context of so many extraordinary women.”“All I care about is getting Joe Biden elected president of the United States so that we again have competent, compassionate, loyal, effective leadership

Decisions on abortion and separation of powers demonstrate how good ideas about the law become empty words on a page.
