The Seattle Police Department swept into the CHOP early Wednesday with heavily equipped officers and tactical vehicles to clear out the Capitol Hill protest zone. Police issued dispersal orders and had arrested about a dozen people as of 5:23 a.m., the department tweeted. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan issued an executive order that went out at 4:58 a.m. declaring the “gathering in this area an unlawful assembly requiring immediate action from city agencies, including the Police Department.” At least 100 police officers (snip) moved into the CHOP, which stands for Capitol Hill Organized Protest. “Anyone who remains in the area, or returns to the area, is subject to arrest,” the department tweeted.

Comments:

Something woke up Mayor Jenny. !!! I hear that the father of the second black teen killed there bravely spoke out.

The “protesters “ screwed up when they targeted the mayor’s home. All of sudden a “summer of love” got personal and now is an illegal assembly. Reality bites!

Not so much fun when the howling mob shows up at your house and threatens your loved ones is it Jenny? Did you really think that because you're a left-wing lesbian you would be immune? Maybe you should read a little history to see what happens to people in revolutionary times when they are no longer useful... they're just idiots.

This "unlawful" assembly was unlawful 3 weeks ago when it was set up. Initially, the Dems thought they could lure PDJT to send in the Feds, get some good TV footage for portraying him as an unfeeling racist monster, and get back to normal business when the dust settled. He didn't take the bait. It dawned on people that CHOP was squarely the responsibility of local law enforcement and that the "mayor" of their city ordered the police to stand down. Her babbling about a "summer of love" didn't square with the rising crime rate and body count (Black lives, anyone?). I hope this sad episode is over and not too many copycats set up "autonomous zones" of hell in our Dem cities.

Now the CHOPers will have another reason to go protest at Jenny’s house. I hope that they harass her until she resigns. And if I were a Seattle police officer and she ordered me to go into the zone and run the Marxists out, I would laugh in her face and take a few days of Blue Flu.

This can change the narrative. It proves that the mayor or governor is the one responsible for the safety of their citizens. They can no longer blame Trump for what happens in their cities because of their poor judgement or political leanings. A good reporter should investigate these politicians and report on who their donors are. I wouldn’t mind seeing the address of such people printed. I would also like to see addresses of people arrested for involvement in looting ,burning and destruction of statues.

Looks like the CHOP activists finally went too far. The police always clear out these encampments in the wee hours of the morning when the inhabitants are sleeping off their binges or hungover and aren't up to fighting back.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia’s annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama's watch. Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow. "You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty," Pelosi told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace. "Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on. Ignoring the annexation of Crimea, the invasion of eastern Ukraine. The list goes on and on."
