Shots fired at latest Portland riot

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 8/5/2020 2:53:06 PM

Shots were fired early Wednesday morning as violent protests continued to rock Portland, Oregon, with demonstrators breaking into the Portland Police Association’s offices and setting it on fire. Police declared the event a riot and said they had to use “crowd control munition” to restore order—though they said no tear gas was used. While they were dispersing that crowd, they said shots were fired nearby in what appeared to be two separate exchanges.(Snip) Protesters are now using the same tactics on local police that they used against the feds. The Portland Police Bureau said officers were pelted with rocks and bricks,

Comments:

Federal personnel are gone, yet the Peaceful Protestors keep right on attacking anyone in authority, just as the Marxists taught them in public school. Locals probably still blame The Bad Orange Meanie.

But wait, I thought the protesters were peaceful and were only violent in reaction to the presence of Federal police? I hope the media and Democrats can come up with another story because I so want to believe that it was all Trump's fault. (Sarc Off)

As satisfying as reciprocal gunfire from LE would be, it’s a fool’s game, and LE knows that. The commies WANT to draw fire, so their buttgirls in the media can have non-stop sob stories about the young, brave, resolute youth, merely taking a stand against rampant injustice in America, gunned down by stormtroopers before they enter law school to eventually work for the NAACP or the SPLC. Or get promoted to shift manager at Starbucks. Then all the woke suburban Karens can cry on tv saying that could have been my precious Kaden or Tiffany. Wait til after the election and let loose on them.

It's past time to give these little terrorists the azz whipping that they obviously didn't get when they were growing up. As far as the press, let them pontificate, no one believes anything they write or say anyway. There's also the fact that they're never going to give you a favorable write up, so don't worry about it. Real, honest to God, patriotic Americans know what is going on and will be cheering you on.

FTA: "Protesters are now using the same tactics on local police that they used against the feds" Nope, protesters don't do that rioting thugs do. Frankly I'm not sure what it would do to the election, I can't say there wouldn't be a risk and I wouldn't take it there is far too much at stake. But if not for that is is long past the time for real bullets to fly. Warn the bastiges with pamphlets the day before, give a one hour warning the day of then unleash holy hellfire. Set up a MASH unit in advance which might give the little darlings a heads up. Rinse and repeat.

What makes it a 'violent' protest? Shots fired usually indicates a crime scene or war zone. Both happen to be illegal and deemed criminal, not protest.

#9, as much as I like your idea, the water cannon with a heavy concentration of indelible purple dye would be so much fun. #1 - declare unlawful assembly and order to disperse #2 - 30 seconds later the water cannon drenches everyone with purple dye. Then let the purple people explain to their parents, bosses, whoever.

Attack Wheeler's private residence, that will keep the mob busy. Force him to hand over all his savings, investments, etc. Then force his family to return all the lands they took from the Indians, that will provide them with enough land to sit on for a while. Remove the Wheeler name from the town that they named after themselves. If any other family members have an issue with it, they can take it up with commie boy Ted! Rich boy who wasn't going anywhere other than the universities where his father parked him, thanks to a lot of money!

A U.S. Air Force helicopter had to make an emergency landing in Virginia Monday after a person had shot at the aircraft and injured a crew member.

Some members of the African American community say racism prompted Seattle's first Black female police chief to retire. They are blaming one of Seattle's most diverse city councils ever. They point out there are no Black people on the City Council for the first time since the 1960s. And they believe racism forced Carmen Best to leave her job as the city's top cop. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best wouldn't call out the Seattle City Council. "Yeah, I'm not using that harsh word," she said. Neither would Mayor Jenny Durkan, her boss.

Revelations last week that this spring’s $576 million unemployment fraud, the largest in state history, started much earlier than previously acknowledged have spurred a storm of new questions over the handling of the crime. Data released Aug. 3 by the state Employment Security Department (ESD) shows that criminals were filing fake claims in the first week of March. That’s more than two months before ESD publicly disclosed the fraud and temporarily froze benefit payments, in mid-May, by which time a staggering 56% of the weekly claims ESD was paying were from criminals, many of them reportedly overseas.

Social Security was still paying benefits this year to a woman who died nearly 50 years ago, and her nephew had been cashing the checks, federal prosecutors said Tuesday, collecting a staggering $459,000 over the years. The government also paid out a $1,200 coronavirus stimulus check this year to the woman, who according to records would have to have been 114 years old—the second-oldest person on Social Security. In actuality the woman, identified only as AV in court documents, died in Brooklyn in 1971. But the government began paying Social Security six years later in 1977, and she was listed

The Walt Disney Company has purged the remaining Fox branding from assets it acquired in a 2017 deal, renaming 20th Century Fox Television as simply 20th Television. It comes as part of a larger rebrand for all of Disney's TV studios, with Fox 21 Television Studios renamed Touchstone Television and ABC Studios and subsidiary ABC Signature merging under the ABC Signature banner. The new 20th Television logo will debut in new seasons of The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad and Bob's Burgers, among others. The move appears to be aimed at limiting confusion of Disney's assets with Fox Corporation, which exists separately

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A crook on a Citi Bike robbed the 13-year-old son of the NYPD’s anti-terror czar in a daring daylight heist on the edge of Central Park, officials said Tuesday. Cops released a surveillance image of a suspect in the Monday afternoon robbery on Central Park West near W. 91st St. in the hopes that someone recognizes him. The victim is the son of NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counterterrorism John Miller. The mugger rolled up on the Citi Bike and snatched the teen’s iPhone XS Max and wallet, which contained $100, before pedaling off down the street about 1:45 p.m.,

NYPD cops had a front-row seat to a five-on-one brawl—but let the violence play out rather than doing their jobs to break it up, The Post has learned. An 11-year-old girl was slapped, punched, kicked and even shocked with a stun gun by a group of five other girls after a basketball game around 7 p.m. Sunday on East 125th Street near Madison Avenue in Harlem. During the roughly 4-minute beatdown, cops sat idly in nearby cruisers—but they didn’t get out until the girl was bloody and bruised, a Post photographer observed.

Across the U.S., 119 Confederate statues and monuments have been removed since the end of May. In 2017, 55 were removed, while 34 were taken down in 2018 and 21 in 2019, according to a new study.(Snip) BeenVerified used 2019 data from the Southern Poverty Law Center and 2020 media reports to calculate the removals.

The decision comes more than a year after Harris, who was also a 2020 Democratic candidate, clashed with Biden over racial issues during the first primary debate.

Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to have announced Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. There was an inquisitive photographer's shot of his notes suggesting just that. But there's also some question about whether she's really qualified. The media has already seeded the ground with quotes from some of the dumbest lawyers in America to state she is a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution, and is therefore, eligible to be vice president or president.

As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were almost anybody else.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.

Left-wing prosecutors have implemented soft-on-crime approaches to criminal justice across America, in some instances making it a matter of policy in major cities not to prosecute specific crimes, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. A common, though not universal, feature of prominent left-wing district attorneys is the backing of political organizations funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros. The New York Times has credited Soros with pioneering the “push to overhaul prosecutors’ offices” across the country. Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, whose jurisdiction includes Chicago, took office in 2017 after winning her election with the help of a Soros-funded super PAC.

According to the schedule released by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Monday, the House will not convene for votes until September 14. Members will be working in their home districts and conducting committee work for the first two weeks of September. Lawmakers were initially scheduled to return September 8.
