Poof! The Portland Riots Just Stopped. Why?

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 9/16/2020 4:35:24 AM

Have Portland’s Professional Protesters™ been smoked out? Since May 29th, Portland has been the back drop of more than 100 nights of antifa, anarchist and Black Lives Matter, Inc™ terroristic riots. They set fires, looted, and intimidated people by threatening to burn them alive in their homes. But after the millions of dollars of destruction, criminality and thuggery it stopped last week. Poof! Why? I certainly don’t want to tempt these thugs, but it can’t go without saying that Portland’s 100 plus days of riots appeared to end after Wednesday, September 9th.

Did the paychecks stop? Is all of the noise and destruction bad for the Dems?

The rioters' managers now understand that the Portland "Mostly Peaceful Protests" are hurting the Democrats. This stoppage proves that the Portland riots can be stopped at any time as directed. Let's hope that he federal Department of Justice has for some time now been investigating to gather the evidence needed to prosecute the organizers of these rioters.

All around, Democrats hurt Democrats. The violence, death, devastation and destruction sum up the Democrat party in four words for me. Of course, I have other adjectives but the four words I used to describe the riots can also apply to their stance on abortion and taking God out of society.

Just because riots stop does not mean stop looking for who funded, who supplied materials, and who is the rioters are.. round enough up- charge with malicious destruction of property/ restitution and jail time. We the people do not need to have tax money go to repair the terrorists mess.

I think Trump is on this. The feds' M.O. is to identify the leaders of a riot through public videos and government data, deputize some local or state law enforcement, sweep in in plain clothes, put the leaders into cars, drive them away, and charge them. I don't know why they waited so long for Portland -- I guess they wanted all the citizens to see the toxic combination of incompetence and evil of their government officials.

Maybe they are working on Plan B. Getting their ducks in a row the closer we get to the election. Strategy for when Trump wins. More mayhem in middle America. The east and west coast is already in for Biden so let's f-up fly over country. Trump country. Attack grocery stores, hit up diners in the few restaurants that are open. March into suburban neighborhoods. It's not over. They have not stopped. Just working on changing the plan. Sorry for being a pessimist but it just feels like the calm before the storm.

Lots of possibilities, but lack of funding is not likely. They might be flying their limited troops out to the east coast, where the air quality is better for urban outdoorsman mayhem.

I think there is no chance federal authorities can tie Soros to the organization and funding of the riots. The paychecks were laundered in 10 directions before disbursement from a PO Box in Bum***k, Egypt.

The rioters stopped so as to devote their full time to planning for their insurrection on Nov 4, when Trump wins by a landslide...you know, making bombs, warehousing guns and ammo, organizing for key cities, etc.

#7, the rioters might move on, but, no, they will not move on to Lancaster, PA. A dozen were arrested there, and the judge hit them with one million dollars bond each. And each has been charged with a series of serious felonies. Not like the catch and release of Portland and elsewhere-- the opposite, in fact. These thugs are in deep sh*t. Rioting stopped immediately.

The Democrats saw they were being hurt by the riots and ordered them stopped. It goes without saying that if they ordered them stopped and they stopped, it was democrats that ordered them started.

the problem is and, we learned it the hard way and may not have learned it at all, when the terrorists become quiet that is the time, for the good guys, to re-organize and re-supply. they will be back and only counterintelligence will find out where they will surface next. terrorists don't stop, they just pause and re-group

I read that the US Marshals Service was deputizing local police. Now they can arrest as Federal Officers! Federal Courts, Federal Grand Juries!!! Punks in ANTIFA ran. They saw US Deputy Marshal Raylen Givens on "Justified" and were scared silly. (One of my all time favorite shows...ever!!!). Bought all the seasons on Prime!

Recently there was posted video of the antifa thugs campground on city owned property in Portland along I-5 near the Hawthorne Bridge. It is a pretty simple task to go over there and take a look see to determine if anyone is home or if they have moved on. The site was originally intended to give the homeless a place to squat until antifa took it over for their staging area.

My take on this is that there are two main reasons for the sudden stop. The first is that the feds have really ramped up their capture and indictment of rioters on federal charges (so they can't be released by local Soros-installed DAs), and second that many of them are re-deploying to other places, primarily DC for the recently announced 50 days of protests before the election. I hope that Homeland Security is ready to go after all the re-deployed rioters right from the git go.

Lesson from history - the German Army was very quiet just before the Battle of the Bulge. Some even thought the war must be over. In the same manner, expect a desperate, last-ditch spate of violence.

Well, just now i saw a Biden ad where he condemns the violence, basically blames President Trump for "fanning the flames" with his rhetoric, he blames Trump supporters for instigating and making (i guess) what he purports were peaceful until Trump supporters show up. It's from a speech where he says he'll use his words to make everything hunky-dory. Remember, the old standard was that people don't start to pay attention to campaigns until after Labor Day. As we here know all too well, MOST people do not care much about politics because they've been kept ignorant, and some are apathetic, some malevolent want to overturn our Republic, some are just so shallow and stupid that they'll just put a check mark next to the "D". Trump campaign better get off the sidelines and put out chronological and factual ads out there right now.

There was only a few dozen doing most of the rioting, the feds picked them off. I don't think the BLM cares for Democrats any more than any official. They are a front for the foreign commie force that wants to bring the USA down.

Well they may have finally figured out that the feds had embedded agents into their midst and were actively gathering intelligence and evidence on the entire nature of the operations. So they shut it all down and beat feet out of town. But that’s ok. We know who they are. You can run but you can’t hide and Trump will make sure you get a nice comfortable cell in a federal penitentiary for the maximum time allowed by law.

If they've been paid, they will need to file 1099's, or they might face IRS in the future. Same with those who were paying them, did they provide insurance, and medical coverage? After all, isn't that something the progressives demand? Did they follow work break rules? Pay over-time? Did they illegally "employ" people?

Several reasons they stopped. One, of course, is that they were hurting the Dems. Others include seeing the arrests and serious punishment coming. The sudden stoppage certainly proves that the riots were organized and paid for by a shadowy leadership. This is why Antifa stopped but most of the blacks were in it for the looting and they may use the next police shooting as an excuse to get some free stuff.

Most of the protestors are probably headed east for the siege of the White House that is set to begin in a day or two. I doubt it really has anything to to with Biden's poll numbers not that these things are not centrally directed but I think the issue is arrests and federal prosecutions have taken a toll and the manpower is needed back east.

Well the FBI should be working to determine if the riots hurting the Democrat poll numbers were the catalyst that caused the Democrats to tell their rioting supporters to temporarily stop the rioting to bring the Democrat poll numbers back up. If that is so it appears to be a big conspiracy.

As the Democrat presidential campaign degenerates into “Weekend at Gropey’s,” a question arises: Assuming the Dems and their media minions somehow drag that rickety, basement-dwelling weirdo across the finish line, how do they get rid of him post-inauguration?

When George Floyd died while in police custody in late May, most agreed his premature death was a tragedy. Yet the discussion on criminal justice reform that emerged in the weeks after Floyd’s passing was quickly overshadowed by the rioting, looting, and violence that broke out in major cities such as Minneapolis, Seattle, and New York. Dozens of people were killed or injured in the violent unrest, and thousands of businesses and properties, many minority-owned, were looted, torched, or otherwise vandalized. Only now are we beginning to realize the full cost of the destruction. New reporting from Axios reveals that the total insured property losses incurred

The Washington Post reports that a “clear racial gap persists in District’s pot arrests.” In other words, D.C. police officers (a majority of whom are Black, by the way) are far more likely to arrest Blacks than Whites for marijuana-related offenses. According to the Post, Blacks account for almost 90 percent of those arrested on marijuana-related charges in D.C. and 84 percent of those arrested for public consumption of the substance. Yet, they make up slightly less than half of the city’s population, and studies claim that marijuana use is equally prevalent among Whites and Blacks.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain have joined Egypt and Jordan in an elite cadre, making it now four Arab nations with leaders who have transcended the limitations of their cultural inculcation by recognizing the state of Israel. Like Jordan’s King Hussein and Anwar Sadat of Egypt before him, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahrain’s King Hamid bin Isa Al Khalifa have acted in defiance of those who tell them that such relations with Jews are forbidden (haram) on religious grounds.

The Democrat-media complex has a new mission: to distract our attention from President Trump’s incredible—and I mean incredible—progress on both economic and foreign policy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently announced another historic month of job growth as the economy added 1.4 million jobs in August. It was the fourth-best month of job growth on record dating back to 1939 (and likely ever), beaten out only by the preceding three months. As a result, the country’s unemployment rate dropped to 8.4 percent from its post-pandemic high of 14.7 percent. Recall that in April the Congressional Budget Office forecast a 16 percent unemployment rate for the third quarter.

The truth is that the Corvette's closest competitor from Porsche's lineup hasn't been the 911 for some time.

According to Rasmussen, President Trump’s job approval rating stands at 51 percent. That’s about where it’s been since late August, and it’s a rating that, one expects, would carry an incumbent president to re-election, especially against a relatively weak opponent like Joe Biden. It’s similar to Barack Obama’s approval rating just before he won in 2016. But what about other surveys? Fox News, in a survey that’s several days older than Rasmussen’s, finds that 48 approve of Trump’s performance, while 51 percent disapprove. The Hill, in a survey taken at around the same time as Fox’s, found that 47 approve and 53 percent disapprove.

Dershowitz told Fox News that CNN selectively edited a clip of his remarks from the Senate floor during President Trump's impeachment trial where he broke down the illegalities surrounding a "quid pro quo" as a member of the president's defense team. The Constitutional scholar alleges in the lawsuit that the news outlet propagated a “sea of lies” by re-airing only part of his quote, which he believes

A Fox News panel scolded and cut away from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after he linked liberal billionaire George Soros to the violent riots that have caused damage across the country over the last few months. “The No. 1 problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said to a panel on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Wednesday. “Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money.

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney is sharply criticizing an investigation by his own party into Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, saying it's “not the legitimate role of government” to try and damage political opponents. GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, has said the committee will issue a report before the Nov. 3 election on Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine. Johnson, a close ally of President Donald Trump, is leading the investigation into Burisma,

Have Portland’s Professional Protesters™ been smoked out? Since May 29th, Portland has been the back drop of more than 100 nights of antifa, anarchist and Black Lives Matter, Inc™ terroristic riots. They set fires, looted, and intimidated people by threatening to burn them alive in their homes. But after the millions of dollars of destruction, criminality and thuggery it stopped last week. Poof! Why? I certainly don’t want to tempt these thugs, but it can’t go without saying that Portland’s 100 plus days of riots appeared to end after Wednesday, September 9th.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended how she has handled her relationship with President Trump — after it was pointed out that the two leaders haven’t spoken in almost a year amid mounting crises. Speaking to MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying “Forget him” while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief’s rhetoric and narrative. Melvin noted to the nation’s highest elected Democrat that, “with all due respect, you just said, ‘Forget him.'” “Yeah, forget him,” she responded. The MSNBC host then asked if she and the president had “just stopped talking? Is that where we are?” “You haven’t talked to him about the wildfires,

Does Jesus want you to own a gun? It’s a question Richard Berry said he wrestled with for years, unsure of how to match his Christian faith with his appreciation for firearms and self-defense. A native of Olathe, Kansas, he told Religion News Service he began grappling with the issue of God and guns in earnest following a 2017 shooting incident near his house. In February of that year, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, both Indian, were enjoying after-work drinks at Austins Bar and Grill when a man named Adam Purinton began to yell and pepper them with questions about

Liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams seems unable to give President Donald Trump any credit for anything, not even multiple peace deals in the Middle East. On Tuesday, during an episode of The Five, Juan Williams claimed that the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain that Trump negotiated a “distraction” and that rather than achieving peace they are “accelerating” the “chance of war” in the Middle East. Williams made his argument while he and his co-panelists were discussing Nancy Pelosi’s recent remarks that the peace deals were a “distraction.”

Approximately 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will receive a $1,000 monthly supplement during their pregnancies and for the first six months of their babies' lives, the city's mayor announced. Mayor London Breed's (D) office said on Monday that the Abundant Birth Project is the first of its kind in the country. The project's goal is to eventually provide a supplement for as long as two years post-pregnancy. “Providing guaranteed income support to mothers during pregnancy is an innovative and equitable approach that will ease some of the financial stress that all too often keeps women from being able to put their health first,” Breed said.

Things got extremely awkward on Fox News panel show Outnumbered on Wednesday after former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich tied billionaire financier George Soros—often the focus of anti-Semitic tropes—to violence in cities, prompting the show’s co-hosts to directly confront him on why he was invoking the liberal philanthropist. Towards the end of a discussion on the property damage that’s been caused by violent protests over police brutality, Gingrich—who is now a Fox News contributor—insisted that the real issue was with local elected leaders.

Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday, including one allowing repairs to glitches and gray areas in the battleground state’s fledgling mail-in voting law and another that kicked the Green Party’s presidential candidate off the November ballot. The state Supreme Court, which has a 5-2 Democratic majority, granted the Democratic Party’s request to order a three-day extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots. And it ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.

By now, it’s the worst kept secret in the world that Joe Biden is having cognitive difficulties. (snip) Rush Limbaugh, however, has noticed another piece in the puzzle, and this one yields to empirical evidence rather than first-hand knowledge. This is the fact that, other than the long-ago Democrat debates and his acceptance speech (which may have been live, rather than prerecorded), Biden is never seen at night. (snip) Biden may be suffering from sundowning, something strongly associated with dementia in the elderly, especially with Alzheimer’s. Sundowning is so named because it consistently appears as the sun is setting.
