On the ninety-third night of violent antifa riots in Portland, a group of protesters occupied the lobby of Mayor Ted Wheeler’s (D-Portland) apartment building as a mob held a block party outside and activists shined strobe lights into Wheeler’s window. The mob demanded the complete abolition of the police by 2022. Meanwhile, a group of rioters set fire to the Portland Police Association building, targeting the police union for what appears to have been the fourth time since the police killing of George Floyd. This unrest came the day after Wheeler sent a letter to President Donald Trump, declining his offer to send federal officers. Protesters entered the lobby

Perfect! He just emailed that incredibly arrogant and insulting letter to Trump rejecting his offer to help put down the riots. Karma is a Hillary.....

Appeasement will never be sufficient with this group. The liberals who promote their cause are useful idiots assisting in their own enslavement. Power is their goal and the two things standing in their way are the police and our 2nd amendment rights.

Was it Churchill who said "Appeasement is feeding the crocodile hoping he will east you last"? At any rate, the crocodiles have come for Mayor Ted. I can hear him saying, "No, you don't want me. I'm on YOUR side!" And the mob declared him an Enemy Of The People as the executioner greased up the guillotine.

In the video: Linking arm tubes?? What the heck is going on there?? Had to look it up. It's called "sleeping dragon". " A sleeping dragon is a maneuver used by protesters to cause disruption. It involves handcuffs and PVC pipe: a series of protesters are handcuffed together through the PVC pipe, which precludes police from simply using bolt cutters to break the handcuffs." If you do a search for"poking the sleeping dragon homeland security", you can see how the devices are removed from the useful idiots.

Haven't the police in Portland been abolished in every sense of the word as we speak? A justice system told to stand down and not make arrests and not prosecute is essentially abolished.

The mayor and city council of Portland should be placed under arrest for fomenting unrest. They have deliberately allowed this crap to continue. It has gone on for over three months. People have died. Put the city under federal control. Break up the rioters. Once the city has had peace restored, call for elections under federal oversite. No hardcore lefties are allowed to run for office. None of the current crew in charge are ever allowed to run for office ever again. One can wish. It won't ever happen. It would be an abuse of power.

It’s called reaping what you sow. Does anyone know if the Portland police union has endorsed Trump? No mention in the article. Wheeler should be begging PDT to send help - if this mob ever gets their hands on him, they will tear him limb from limb. As the saying goes, the alligator will eventually eat him.

Like most of the democrat mayors and governors, Wheeler is an incompetent jackass who thought that it would be a good idea to give the mobs exactly what they wanted until Joe Biden was elected and they would be rewarded by their own corrupt system. Then the support turned into appeasement when they finally figured out that the mobs were working for their own purpose, which is insane anarchy, not the support of democrats. Surprise, Teddy, Pandora's Box is wide open and it will take real Americans to close it. Woe be unto the many American corporations and professional sports organizations who thought they could appease the angry Zulus and little white Nazis by giving them everything they demanded. Surprise! They want it all. Starbucks, McDonalds, Nike, Wendy's, Chic-fil-A, Ben & Jerrys, NBA, NFL, NASCAR, Mensa, Planned Parenthood, Hollywood, General Motors, you blew it. The rest of you know who you are. Shame, shame.

#8, that's an interesting term that I have never heard. America has no BIPOCs, they were all sold at some point and transported here (Curses on the sellers) unless they designed sailboats in Africa and came here around the same time the Vikings did, which is highly unlikely. Designing sailboats and navigation by the stars are advanced arts and even Columbus didn't really know where he was going.

Poor Teddy now can’t leave his home! How will he get to work at City Hall? (which they are trying to burn down). He will need the POLICE to escort him anywhere! Oh, the schadenfreude!!! I guess he didn’t really think this through. Maybe he can ask for a do-over? Because he’s, you know, an Important Person, and he Cares, so he needs to be able to do his work. Whatever that may be. I can’t wait to see his next move. Maybe if he gets on his knees and begs President Trump to help him........

I would thank the tube people for imprisoning themselves. Then I would explain to them and the crowd around them that arrests will start immediately, except for the tube people. NO one will be able to assist them and no one will be arresting the tube people for the next 48 hours. They voluntarily decided to do the tube thing and sit in the lobby, so they can voluntarily leave, or not.

I looked up "sleeping dragon" Those people who do this are absolutely BONKERS. I would block off the protestors that have their arm stuck into one of these contraptions, and let them sit there for hours on end.. no potty break. nothing to eat. I would then say to anyone other protesters who complain that because of the dangerous sleeping dragon, that the police are protecting the protestors to keep them from any harm. After all, while they are sitting there, someone could throw bottles or other projectiles at them. These tactics the" peaceful protestors" are using are way beyond not being well organized. Also thought that people needed a permit to hold a sit in.

Just watched the press conference, and as expected, Wheeler just blathered on and offered NO solutions whatsoever, other than we all need to come together, and don’t come to our city to cause trouble, and how he’s been doing everything he can to stop the violence done by the “peaceful protesters”. On and on he babbled about nothing, except he clearly hates Trump and said many lies about him. He says “it’s about who we are and where we want to go from here”. What does that even mean, and how is it accomplished? He said in a emphatic way that he denounces violence, yet night after night the violence continues, with his silence! He wants to commit to changes and “working together”. He said nothing about how they are constantly trying to burn down buildings, including the Courthouse, and how they attack the Portland police viciously, throwing dangerous items, and shining lasers at their eyes, how they stop cars from moving and beat people up, accost citizens who need to go somewhere downtown, it’s just endless! Wheeler seems to think that the “protesters” like him and will cooperate with him, but that won’t happen because they are anarchists and insurrectionists, and they are totally uncivilized. What a mess. Wheeler said nothing at all helpful and it was just what I expected from him, he is incompetent.

At least 175 people have been arrested during the recent civil unrest in Kenosha, Wis., with 104 having addresses listed outside of the city, according to numbers released by police on Sunday. The arrests were related to the protests that have occurred every night, and have sometimes turned into destructive rioting, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Aug. 23. Kenosha Police said in a media release that the arrests were from people located in 44 cities, although authorities didn't elaborate which states they came from. A total of 69 people were arrested for curfew violations.

If it were up to Joe Biden, the national shutdown implemented due to the coronavirus pandemic would never end. When he accepted the nomination for president on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, he promised that if elected, he would pass a federal mask mandate as part of his effort to defeat the virus. “It’s a patriotic duty,” he declared. Of course, Biden didn’t bother to elaborate on this proposed mandate or explain how his administration would enforce it — because he knows that such a heavy-handed restriction would be legally dubious and almost impossible to enforce.

You can almost smell the sweat. The Democrats and their media handmaidens are starting to panic about Joe Biden’s prospects. The proof comes in their efforts to wish away the wave of crime and violence engulfing many American cities. Their argument can be boiled down to two false claims. First, it’s President Trump’s fault. Second, it’s not that big of a wave. The first is patently absurd on its face. Democratic mayors running nearly all those cities are pulling back cops and rejecting federal help. The blood is on their hands.

More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R.

A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.

In 2016, the Vatican was pulling for Hillary Clinton. Just days before the presidential election, Pope Francis renewed his criticism of politicians who speak about erecting “walls.” This led Slate and other publications to run such headlines as “It Sure Sounds Like Pope Francis Doesn’t Think Americans Should Vote for Trump.” Several Francis-friendly prelates ran interference for Hillary Clinton. San Jose’s bishop, Patrick McGrath, wrote a letter to his flock in which he said that Donald Trump’s complaint of a rigged system “borders on the seditious.” According to the Italian press, many of Pope Francis’s aides viewed Trump’s victory as a “bitter defeat.”
