Looks like re-runs. What will they destroy when all the statues and monuments are gone?

Give them a chance and they will bring Portland to your doorstep. Time to take a stand.

Democratic mayors and governors are complicit in every moment of the destruction. That's the whole shebang right there. It could have been (will be) stopped right there. Local control hasn't been employed and until it is, there is no turning back; no stopping it. People will either hold their local governments accountable or it will spiral to the point of no return. I remain optimistic that the point of no return hasn't been reached, but that's only optimism. Time will tell.

Looks like private property is next on the agenda. Unless the DA’s in charge let it be known they will not prosecute citizens who use force to defend their property and or safety it will get real ugly real fast.

The “good people” of Portland? Last I heard their already liberal mayor was trailing a more leftist candidate in his bid for re-election! They don’t want it stopped! I heard one of the city leaders say in response to her opposition to bringing the rioting to an end, “People have to understand Portland is a very progressive city.”

So now the narrative being pushed is 'Militants", eh? Not BLM or anty-teefa? Those must be polling poorly. Same thing the Iranians did when they took our embassy staff hostage during the Jimma Carter malaise. First it was students, then eventually when nothing was done, it was their version of 'militants'. They need to be slapped down so hard (including their enablers in the press and political office and their funders) that you'd have to dig down with heavy equipment for three days to to catch a whiff of them.

This was planned, even directed from inside the local government I'll bet. They wanted the statues gone, and the museum shut down. Once this is over they'll commission new statues and hire a new museum staff. Leftists hate history; it's an impediment to their agenda. To control the people you first cut away their heritage. Then you substitute a Marxist narrative.

These criminals are not going to stop until they're arrested and prosecuted, which has happened regarding destruction of federal monuments, statues and federal court houses, under limited federal police powers. If Democrats don't solve these problems, Congress needs to grant sufficient ADDITIONAL federal police powers to get the job done. If such federal police powers were currently in place, President Trump would have stopped these crimes. His hands are tied to tightly.

No need to "let Portland dies." Portland is already dead. And if there indeed are any "good Portlanders," they're really, really quiet and deathly afraid of speaking out, or they are buried underneath the burning rubbled and toppled statues of our American heritage.

Every day, all day long we see constant examples of Democrats tearing down and causing destruction while Conservatives build up and create opportunities, jobs, businesses, structures, cities, etc. Democrat cities and states shrink while Republican cities and states grow. Why isn't this obvious to the general population? I can't understand why polls aren't 99% for Trump.

Nothing says rage like a middle aged woman with daddy issues, a black mask and bandanna and a shrill, cringe-producing voice screaming hatred at the top of her lungs. As always, the thimble-brained Leftists hold another tired old 1960’s era “Days of Rage” event because the words “day” and “rage” sort of rhyme and if two words can be made to form a rhyme no slogan is too stupid for Marxists. Their favorite rhyming words are “ho” and “go”, which, when put together, form the genesis of innumerable old chestnuts. Nobody can stay angry for longer than they’ve been alive but these people are giving it a try. Statues can be cleaned and recast but when a soul is diseased it’s very hard to repair. There is so much goodness and beauty in the world. What a waste of lives.

I hope there's enough video for DOJ to ID these Anarchists so they can be prosecuted and the 10 year prison sentence be applied. My concern is the 10 years only applies to statues on Federal Property and these statues were on Municipal property. I truly hope that Vigilantes, acting as 'Independent Operators', begin to take action against any and all Anarchists by any means possible! Illegal? Yes. Effective? Yes. Very Effective..........

On the 197th day of “15 days to slow the spread,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom (Democrat, of course) has moved the reopening goalposts yet again. Originally counties had to meet metrics aimed at ensuring adequate rates of testing and the availability of hospital/ICU beds/ventilators. (Contact tracing was supposed to be a part of that, but that effort’s been a big fat joke). Once hospitalization rates, ventilator usage, and death rates plummeted over the summer Newsom changed his strategy and enacted by gubernatorial fiat a tiered system that completely ignored those metrics and instead focused on daily new cases and positivity rate.

The liberals' worst nightmare has come to pass: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died during the Trump administration. Many supporters had urged her to retire during Obama's tenure so he could appoint her leftist successor. But with arrogant defiance, Ginsburg stayed on the bench, certain, no doubt, that President Hillary Clinton would name her successor. Reality's one tough customer. Now President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We'll let all the others recount her unimpeachable credentials. Suffice to say, Mrs. Barrett is at least as qualified for the bench as was Mrs. Ginsburg. Ginsburg was confirmed 96-3 in just 50 days.

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.

The new super PAC, dubbed Not Our Faith, plans to roll out TV and digital ads focused on Christian voters — particularly the evangelical and Roman Catholic voters who helped Trump secure victory in 2016. Its first digital ad, set to run in the battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, takes sharp aim at Trump’s claim to a foothold with Christians. Correction*
