Shootings in Portland, Oregon, nearly tripled over the summer after Mayor Ted Wheeler disbanded the city’s police gun crimes unit, according to new police data. The city recorded 223 shootings in July and August, up from 77 over the same period in 2019. And a little more than halfway through September the city already had 64 shootings, or double the shootings from the same month last year. The numbers were released last week. On Monday the federal Justice Department declared Portland and two other cities, Seattle and New York, to be “Anarchy Jurisdictions.”(Snip) The city has faced near-nightly mayhem since late May,

Things will get a lot worse in portland before they get better. The "prosecutors" turning the arrested peaceful rioters, looters, and murderers without prosecuting them for felonies means that those known criminals will be able to take their booty gained in the illegal activities and buy guns and firearms legally. With no felony convictions, they can buy all the guns they want legally, paid for by their victims.

That is so weird, almost seems like the police unit was put there for a reason and was doing their jobs?

These morons are starting to discover that there are a LOT of things that the police are doing which actually DO prevent crime. Elect morons, get moronic outcomes. Zero sympathy. Perhaps a couple of dozen folks might not vote Dem this November? Nah, not a chance. Their brains are so warped that they will blame this on Trump and the conservative elves.

Not too many years ago, I thought that Oregon was a nice place to live. You cannot imagine my shock at seeing how, in a place where crime should barely exist, tranquility has been turned into turmoil by white people advocating for BLM and Antifa in an almost wholly homogenous white society! Over 70%! And the people who are doing it-nothing but a pack of FREAKS and little kids who are so bored they get their kicks playing revolutionaries. If you want to know how fast America can be destroyed by radical Left, look no further than Portland Oregon.

The DA's office is deeply in bed with the Antifa/BLM rioters. The DA even admitted he is buddies with these activists. Time to shut the money off, and time to send the Feds in to give them an investigation of the kind that should have started long ago.

I start with the understanding that, although they seem insane to us, they intend the outcome of their action. They are part and parcel with the riots, standing down the police, taking away our rights, stealing the reins of power, confiscating our means of defense, letting the criminals lose to cause more harm, bankrupting our cities and states, all of it. This not about racism, or building a better society, this is about good vs evil this is communism on the march. This is going on in over 60 countries, all inhabitable continents, and is spread across our country with over a hundred of of our cities. Our leaders are failing us, too afraid to say anything. They huddle in our government offices wishing for it to all go away. Hoping that if they can just wait it out all will go away and return to normal. It won't. Even if President Trump wins re-election. These devils are here to stay. If not this election then the next, they have made their declaration and they intent to win. While we ponder the point they are taking action and growing stronger. If they win, whenever the win, the police and the military will be complacent and do as they are told or they will be kicked to the curb with the losers. We have allowed this to happen. We kn ow the universities have been taken over but we still send our kids there. They have taken over the public schools, they have brought our enemies in by the thousands and scattered them all over the country. We have 20 mil or more invaders. They brought them here. It was their army to help tear down the walls. They bankrupted the hospital, drove social programs into a monsters that we cannot afford and is dragging us under. They allowed every filthy, trashy, disgusting garbage into our school, our entertainment, our lives, our culture. They hammer out fear porn night and day. The give us just what they want us to know. Many of our church leaders failed to lead us because they would lose the tax benefits. Of course, not all of them and not just for that reason alone but look at the overall state of affairs with our churches. They have lost their way. They enemy has a battle plan and they are using it. This isn't the dems, although they are an active part of it, this is going on world-wide. This is not new to history. It has happened repeatedly throughout history. It just hasn't happened lately. I read the book. The thing is that in our country we have no one to blame but WTP. We can turn back and maybe win the fight and defeat this sickness. Maybe we went to far and we will lose, but that will depend on whether enough of the good people learn the truth. The media controls the message.

Red Bluff, Calif.—A 77-year-old military veteran described how he was attacked in Red Bluff, apparently because he was wearing a 'Make America Great Again' (MAGA) hat supporting President Donald Trump. The attack happened Friday, September 18 in broad daylight at the Red Bluff post office. The victim did not want to be identified. He told KRCR-TV the attack caught him completely by surprise.

So much for “protection.” A factory in Vietnam was busted washing and reselling more than 320,000 used condoms to pass them off as new, according to police who raided the dangerous operation. To “recycle” the dirty rubbers, Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, 32, allegedly had roughly 1,000 of them delivered per month to the facility in Tan Uyen Town, where she cleaned and reshaped them, according to the Vietnam Insider. Pham, who rented the facility, remolded the jimmies with a wooden shaft to make them look fresh again—then placed them in new packaging, the local outlet reported.

New York—Wells Fargo CEO Charles Scharf apologized Wednesday for comments he made about the difficulty of finding qualified Black executives. Scharf said that "there is a very limited pool of Black talent to recruit from" in corporate America. The memo to employees was written in June, but became public this week. The comments and similar statements made in a Zoom meeting, reported by Reuters, led to an intense backlash in Washington and on social media.(Snip) Citigroup announced on the same day as Scharf's apology that it would direct $1 billion of the firm's capital toward closing the "racial wealth gap" in the United States.

President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday barring federal funds from any contractors who conduct critical-race theory diversity training, saying it promotes a “destructive ideology.” Expanding on action the White House took earlier this month with federal agencies, the president said the administration won’t allow “race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating in the federal workforce” and won’t permit contractors “to inculcate such views in their employees.” “Such ideas may be fashionable in the academy, but they have no place in programs and activities supported by federal taxpayer dollars,” the president said. “Research also suggests that blame-focused diversity training reinforces biases and decreases opportunities

Cindy McCain endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president Tuesday in a rebuke of President Donald Trump by the widow of the GOP's 2008 nominee. Trump has had a fraught relationship with members of John McCain's family since he disparaged the Arizona senator during his 2016 campaign. But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

CNN host Don Lemon proposed radically changing the U.S. political system to take power away from the "minority" vote in the country. During the hand-off before his show Monday night, Lemon debated fellow network host Chris Cuomo by arguing Democrats should push to eliminate the Electoral College, which would require a constitutional amendment. Lemon said such a feat was possible if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats "stack the courts."

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel.

The first presidential debate is next Tuesday, and I don't see Biden surviving. His campaign has been playing "hide the Crypt-Keeper" since spring, occasionally proving to the public that he's still ticking by having him tussle with a teleprompter while "objective journalists" participate in make-believe interviews. Biden's cognitive decline is now so steep that he begins reading pre-written answers to pre-written questions, forgets what he's doing halfway through, and settles for stringing syllables together that sound English-y in a non–native speaker sort of way. He is a man forever in search of a thought but finding none
