A trip over to RealClearPolitics reveals a list of articles on Black Lives Matter. The most recent article on the subject is titled Protesters tear down statue of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore. The next article is titled Protesters rally downtown for July Fourth boycott: ‘That flag is a lie’. The third item is actually a tweet from Julio Rosas. It’s titled DC: Protesters set fire to flag, chant ‘America was never great.’

The depths of the Democrats’ hatred of the United States is sickening. That’s why people from across the political spectrum needs to turn out this fall and vote for Republicans. It isn’t because Republicans are perfect. It’s because elected Democrats hate the U.S. and because Democrat activists, which includes the MSM, don’t have a bit of integrity left. They’re disgusting excuses for human beings.

Democrats didn’t criticize Seattle’s CHOP zone. People were murdered in CHOP but Mayor Durkan didn’t take action. The only reason CHOP was finally eliminated was because protesters showed up at Jenny Durkan’s home and started protesting. She still hasn’t called or visited Horace Lorenzo Anderson, Sr., whose son died there a month ago. President Trump called Mr. Anderson but Durkan still hasn’t lifted a finger.

In Minneapolis, anarchists ran things for almost a month. Jacob Frey did his best to appeasing them. In the end, it wasn’t enough. They still want him fired. In NYC, anarchists insisted that they wouldn’t stop protesting in front of City Hall until the City Council cut $1,000,000,000 from the NYPD $6,000,000,000 budget. After the City Council granted their wishes, the mob announced that they weren’t leaving. They wanted more. This is how grateful they were for the budget cuts:

Democrats love anarchists. The question is whether anarchists love Democrats or whether anarchists just play Democrats as fools.

Saying that this election hinges on taming the various mobs (Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Justice Democrats) while jumpstarting the economy. That requires mental toughness, agility in messaging and the willingness to proverbially cut the Democrats’ heart out. Anyone that’s watched what’s happened to babies through teenagers in Chicago and thinks that the mob can be dealt with isn’t paying attention. That’s just stupid thinking. Anyone that’s watched what’s happened in Minneapolis, specifically along Lake Street, and still thinks that this election isn’t a street fight is kidding themselves.

Antifa, BLM and the Justice Democrats have Biden right where they want him. He isn’t capable of putting 2 straight sentences together, which means that Democrats can push him to do whatever they want him to do. What they want him to do is be a trojan horse, someone that looks harmless at first, then transforms into society’s worst nightmare.

For instance, the Justice Democrats state on their website that “Justice Democrats is working to elect a mission-driven caucus in Congress that will fight for solutions that match the scale of our many crises: skyrocketing inequality, catastrophic climate change, deepening structural racism as the country becomes more diverse, and the corporate takeover of our democracy.”

That isn’t all the Justice Democrats say. Here’s more:

We need a Democratic Party that fights for its voters, not its corporate donors. That’s why we helped elect leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress. We need leadership in the Democratic Party that will represent and fight for our communities.

After NYC cut $1,000,000,000 from the NYPD budget last night, AOC said this:

Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”

The Resistance isn’t disappearing. It’s getting stronger. If thoughtful people of all political stripes don’t recognize this, they should be ostracized. The Democrats’ political hacks, like Donna Brazile, Marie Harf and Jessica Tarlov can assure us that Democrats don’t want to defund police departments all they want. They’re either lying or they’re just stupid.

I don’t buy the notion that they’re stupid. They know that police forces are funded at the municipal level, not the federal level. It doesn’t matter what Pelosi or Jim Clyburn or Joe Biden says on the subject. The voices that matter are the voices of people most voters haven’t heard of. People like Lisa Bender and Jeremiah Ellison have infinitely more say in police budget matters.

It isn’t a stretch to say that the Justice Democrats essentially run the Democrat Party. They just took out Elliot Abrams in a primary. They almost beat Amy McGrath in Kentucky’s primary. Here’s their entire list of candidates.

This isn’t the time for nitpicking. It’s the time to fight like hell. Idiots like Mitt Romney should be criticized for supporting Black Lives Matter. Did Mitt even know that BLM’s co-founders admitted that they were “trained Marxists”?

Wake up Mitt. This isn’t some innocent organization. They’ll rip your heart out, too, after they’ve used you. You’re just a useful idiot that they’ll use on their way to achieving power that will lead to the overthrow of this constitutional republic.

Politicians, it’s time to set aside the partisanship. It’s time for everyone to put America first. To Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jim Clyburn and other Democrats, it’s time to set aside the partisanship that’s been part of your system. Sit down in good faith with Tim Scott and negotiate a principled compromise with him. If Van Jones can work with Jared Kushner on the police reform executive order, then it’s certainly possible for you to negotiate in good faith.

If you can’t do that, then just step aside. Let others who can work in good faith finish this legislation. It’s time to fix what’s broken. Americans have the right to safety. Eliminate the idiotic ideas about eliminating police departments. Tell the activists who want deep cuts in police department budgets to take a hike. The vast, vast majority of Americans want that for their kids and expect that from their politicians.

If you won’t do what’s right, we’ll find people who will. You think that you’re irreplaceable? I’m telling you that you’re only essential if you do what’s right for the people.

It’s long past time to tell Democrat media hacks like Jessica Tarlov, Marie Harf and Donna Brazile to shut up about what the ‘Defund the Police’ movement is or isn’t about. Tarlov, Harf and Brazile are Democrat establishment hacks waging a public fight against the Bernie Bros/BLM/Antifa/AOC activist wing of the Democratic Party. The truth is that Democrats are split on this from a PR standpoint. Democrats aren’t split on this from a policy standpoint.

Bill de Blasio is the worst big city mayor in America. He wants to cut $1,000,000,000 from NYPD’s $6,000,000,000 police budget while “gun violence has surged across the Big Apple.” De Blasio insists that “We can do this, we can strike the balance, we can keep this city safe.”

Of course, that doesn’t match with reality, which is normal with de Blasio:

The violence continued across the city over the weekend as eleven people were shot in less than 12 hours Saturday night into Sunday night, including in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Manhattan.

The key to preventing crime is … reducing the numbers of officers on the street? If de Blasio had been alive when they made the Wizard of Oz, he might’ve gotten cast as the Scarecrow even without an audition:

“We have caved to the mob in a moment we know will come back to haunt us,” Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) told The Post. “The mayor is smart enough to know that these actions will create a more violent environment in New York. “This is what you get when you have government-by-hashtag,” he added.

Borelli’s counterpart from Queens, Councilman Robert Holden, echoed the complaints. “I’m against wholesale cuts based on protest signs,” the Middle Village Democrat said. “One billion dollars is an arbitrary number that the mayor and some of my colleagues are trying to reach to appease the masses without considering public safety.”

De Blasio insists that this is part of his reform package. That’s BS. There aren’t any reforms in this proposal. The only thing that’s happening is de Blasio caving to BLM, Antifa and AOC.

Defunding the police is happening in too many places for Democrats to ignore. LA, NYC, Seattle, Portland and Chicago are cutting their budgets. Minneapolis wants to eliminate their police department entirely. Since PD budgets are set locally, Democrat hacks like Tarlov, Harf, Brazile and Biden can say whatever they want. Their voices are irrelevant.

The voices that matter are the activists’ voices (#BlackLivesMatter, Antifa) and the de facto leaders of the Democrats (AOC, Ilhan Omar, Lisa Bender and Jeremiah Ellison).

Joe Biden came out of his basement bunker yesterday to deliver a speech. Redstate.com has that part of the story here. The heart of the story, though, belongs to the Daily Caller. First, the Daily Caller was the only media outlet to ask Biden a question. Next, the Daily Caller “reached out to the Biden campaign and asked them if the former vice president agrees with the Democrats who want to tear down statues of George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt and some depictions of Jesus. The campaign was given over 24 hours to respond to the inquiry. They did not do so.”

Joe Biden won’t answer that question in 24 hours or 24 months. After telling Charlamagne The God that he “ain’t black”, he can’t afford to get the African-American community upset with him. He’s already skating on thin ice.

This isn’t about improving the lives of African-Americans. This is a continuation of President Obama’s promise right before the 2008 election. That’s when he said “We’re just 5 days away from radically transforming America.”

This isn’t about racism. It’s about Marxism. That isn’t a right wing talking point. That’s what Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter, said in this article:

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists”, making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.

This is a major part of the Democrat Party:

“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza. “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.”

It isn’t surprising that Biden won’t comment about Black Lives Matter. He needs them to turn out and vote but he doesn’t dare say that. If Democrats admitted that, they’d lose sane voters.

This election isn’t about right vs. left. It’s about Marxist haters vs. capitalist problem solvers. It’s about people whose heart is filled with hate (BLM) vs. people who want to positively change the U.S. Anyone that thinks that Joe Biden will stand up to AOC, BLM and the Congressional Black Caucus is kidding themselves. This is how radical Black Lives Matter is:

In 1968, Mann was a coordinator for Students for a Democratic Society, from which a more radical wing, the Weather Underground, was splintered the following year. It was led by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, who called for “direct action” over civil disobedience, seeking the overthrow of the US government. In 1969, the FBI classified the group as a domestic terror organization.

SDS and the Weather Underground were the heart of the anti-war movement. These, along with the Black Panther Party, were the nastiest of the nasty organizations. This is what the Weather Underground was about:

When SDS collapsed in 1969, the Weather Underground stepped forward, inspired by communist ideologies and embracing violence and crime as a way to protest the Vietnam War, racism, and other left-wing aims. “Our intention is to disrupt the empire … to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks,” claimed the group’s 1974 manifesto, Prairie Fire. By the next year, the group had claimed credit for 25 bombings—including the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, the California Attorney General’s office, and a New York City police station.

Joe Biden wants these organizations’ votes but he doesn’t want to be tied to these organizations publicly. The SDS, Weather Underground and BLM hate America. This isn’t about statues. BLM New York leader Hawk Newsom told Martha MacCallum that he might be kidding or he that he might be talking literally when he talked about burning America down:

/if Joe Biden isn’t willing to state emphatically that BLM won’t have any influence on his administration, black voters should vote Trump. I can’t state this firm enough. BLM stands opposed to everything that the US was started upon. Any idiot that thinks that pre-Civil War US is worse than Marxism isn’t paying attention.

Clearly, black lives don’t matter to Black Lives Matter, aka BLM, the Democrats’ racial special interest front group. If all black lives mattered to BLM, they’d be marching in Chicago’s streets. They’d be demanding justice for “Mekhi James, the 3-year-old boy” who “was shot and killed in Chicago over the weekend. Two hours later, a 13-year-old girl was shot and killed just blocks away.”

Lori Lightfoot nonchalantly regurgitated the Democrats’ talking points. Lightfoot said “Our city’s collective heart breaks to hear the unfathomable news of a 3-year-old boy who was shot and killed tonight on Chicago’s West Side.”

Roger Simon captures things perfectly in this article. Simon opens the article by saying “In case you missed it, and you could have considering the endless thumb sucking regarding just how many came or didn’t to the Trump rally in Tulsa, 60 were shot, 9 fatally, at last count, over Father’s Day weekend in Chicago.”

Unfortunately, the Chicago fatalities increased to 14, including Mekhi James. Tio Hardiman is asking the right question:

Why aren’t 30,000-50,000 people “shutting down the streets until” Chicago got it right? Mr. Simon appears to have it right:

And then of course we have Minneapolis, where most of the recent contretemps began, where last night 1 died and 11 were wounded in a shooting spree. All of this was black on black violence of the most tragic sort.

Where was Black Lives Matter? Nowhere to be found, since the cops didn’t do any of it. BLM doesn’t seem to care about violence done to blacks if the police are not involved, even though black on black is by many multiples more lethal and more common, resulting in exponentially more black casualties. BLM’s primary interest appears to be smashing the state, creating revolution with their pals in Antifa in order to take power themselves.

BLM and Antifa aren’t about improving black lives. They exist to put Democrats in power. Period.

This past weekend, the DFL House passed a bill that would force Minnesotans to pay for the bills that DFL Mayor Jacob Frey caused. According to the Alpha News article, “The Democrat-controlled state house voted 74-53, Friday, in affirmation of a bill (HR 132/the PROMISE Act) that saddles taxpayers from around Minnesota with the burden of funding repairs to private and public property in the Twin Cities that was destroyed by the George Floyd riots. This bill, if passed, will also increase sales taxes and trigger an investigation into the law enforcement and National Guard response to the unrest.”

Let me talk for rural voters on this. Frey let the rioters and looters demolish his city when he could’ve prevented the violence. Now he expects the rest of Minnesota to pay for his incompetence? I don’t think so.

It’s one thing for Minnesotans to pay for natural disasters. That’s what we’ve always done. This isn’t that, though. This time, the rioting and looting weren’t an act of God. This was the result of major mayoral mismanagement. It’s what to expect from a ditzy progressive mayor who’s more activist/airhead than leader. Based on this video, he’s mostly a wimp:

Republicans need to tell the DFL to take a hike. Republicans need to say that we aren’t paying for their activists’ (think Black Lives Matter, Antifa) lawlessness. The Democrats’ spinelessness, unhinged activism and connection with radicals like BLM and Antifa led to these buildings getting demolished. Had the DFL cared more about protecting the people than about having an issue for the campaign, we wouldn’t be in this position. Also, electing Jacob Frey instead of someone that’s competent is a stain on the DFL. It says where the DFL’s priorities lie.

Journalist Andy Ngo is reporting that the Occupied Territory within Seattle “could be described as a ‘sort of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.'” In greater detail, Ngo reports that “during the day it could be considered peaceful if one ignored boarded-up businesses or graffiti calling for the murder of police. But when the sun goes down, the “criminal elements come out,” Ngo noted. ‘Unfortunately, last night that was made very clear, when one person on a microphone and a loudspeaker was able to sic a mob of probably more than 100 people to chase down this business that was several blocks away. They just all descended on it. It was pure anarchy.'”

Jenny Durkan, the idiot mayor of Seattle, once told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “We could have a summer of love.” That’s Durkan’s legacy. She’ll never be able to live that down for the rest of her life. That statement is as tied to her as “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” is tied to President Obama.

Right now, it appears as though there’s a 3-way competition for the ‘Worst Mayor in America.’ At this point, the tri-finalists are Durkan, Jacob Frey and Bill de Blasio. It’s a difficult race to handicap. Durkan allowed a foreign nation to sprout up in the middle of her city. Frey let rioters and looters demolish his city. In a city of 8,000,000 people, De Blasio has figured out a way to piss off every influential group in the city. But I digress.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told everyone that it was Durkan’s decision to abandon the police:

Seattle is transforming itself into a hell-hole:

“For example, there’s a Trader Joe’s nearby who announced just a few days ago that they’re closing indefinitely because of security and safety issues,” he remarked. “So, when you take that and you also see all [of] the businesses that are boarded up, that no cars can drive into this area — I don’t see how the few anecdotes of positive experiences of some owners could be the representative voice. Particularly when there are now some dissident voices coming out to speak and they’re having to do it anonymously because of threats of retaliation,” Ngo noted.

Another contributing factor to what Ngo described as a chaotic atmosphere is that many people have been seen openly carrying weapons like handguns, rifles, batons or knives. In addition, Ngo highlighted other concerns like rampant drug use, homelessness and lack of medical care.

Other than those dangers, Seattle is a virtual paradise. Then again, what would you expect if you removed law enforcement officers? I’d expect a chaotic situation, which is what’s happened.

After I wrote this post, a thought pierced through my thick skull. This isn’t about a policy fight. It’s a street fight being waged by well-trained rioters and anarchists. These rioters took the time to figure out a battle plan. People were trained to help fighters overcome police tactics.

While Capitol Hill Democrats (the ones in DC, not Seattle) insist that they won’t defund the police, the people in the streets don’t just talk defunding. They’re taking action to abolish police departments (plural, not singular). Since funding police departments comes from municipalities, the things that DC Democrats say is irrelevant.

Here in Minnesota, the DFL House is gearing up for a fight about police reform. This is window-dressing. Again, it won’t affect Minneapolis, Minnesota’s biggest city. They’re trying to eliminate their police department and replace it with shrinks, social workers and who knows what else.

Right now, Ground Zero is Minneapolis. That won’t last forever. Whoever trained these streetfighters didn’t do this to eliminate the police department of a mid-sized city in the Midwest. This is intended to be used nationwide.

This goes beyond partisan politics, too. The manifesto/handbook is intended to give other anarchists a playbook to follow in tearing down governments. What’s frightening is that Democrats haven’t noticed that they’re supporting a cause that they don’t have control over. As usual, Democrats see this as a political movement. This isn’t a political movement. It’s a let’s-restructure-government movement that seeks to tear down the Constitution.

In case people hadn’t noticed, these anarchists a) hate America with a passion, b) hate the Constitution and c) want the Bill of Rights demolished. Why should we think that this is anything except a powerplay? This isn’t just a movement. It’s a multi-faceted organization.

During the rioting in NYC, pallets of bricks were found at pre-staged locations. In Minneapolis, Black Lives Matter rioters just happened to find concrete blocks on a walking bridge on I-94, which they then threw at police officers. In Seattle, anarchists took over a 6-block area with virtually no resistance. After the riot, the Seattle police chief, Carmen Best, held a press conference. She told her officers that she didn’t have anything to do with the capture of the police station, hinting that Mayor Durkan ordered the stand-down.

These riots are just starting. Rest assured that they’ll spread. This won’t be, in the words of Seattle’s Democrat Mayor Durkan, a summer of love. This is shaping up to be a summer of hate, arrests and riots.

Despite the Democrats’ best efforts to deny reports that Seattle has quickly turned into a violence-riddled city, that’s what’s happening in Seattle. It’s clear because I’m quoting a statement issued by Mayor Jenny Durkan.

Stephanie Formas, Mayor Durkan’s chief of staff, read from the statement, saying “After events Sunday night, it was clear that the situation needed to be significantly defused and de-escalated. The cycle of conflict between demonstrators and officers was harmful to residents, demonstrators, businesses, officers, our city, and the opportunity to make real progress with the community. On Monday, Mayor Durkan concluded the situation could only be deescalated between officers and demonstrators by removing the barriers. After long consultations with Chief Best and SPD, on how to do so in a safe manner, the Mayor directed free access to Pine Street for peaceful demonstrations Monday evening.”

The definition of de-escalate is “to decrease in intensity, magnitude, etc.” If everything is calm in Seattle, then there isn’t a need for de-escalation. This is proof that Durkan is applying partisan spin to a difficult, if not dangerous, public safety situation.

Durkan and Gov. Inslee, both exceptionally progressive Democrats, have let the anarchists ruin one of the most beautiful cities in the Western Hemisphere. There’s a reason why Seattle’s nickname is the Emerald City. It isn’t surprising that the progressives essentially surrendered Seattle to the mob rule of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. This is Chief Best’s statement to the Seattle Police Department, aka SPD:

In her statement, Chief Best stated “We have heard reports that there are armed people ‘patrolling’ the streets near 12th and Pine. Of course, this is very concerning, especially because we don’t know who these people are. We’ve also received reports that these armed people may be demanding payment from business owners in exchange for some of that protection.”

Durkan’s statement talked about “peaceful demonstrations.” Armed men demanding payments from businesses are activities associated with peaceful demonstrations. They’re activities associated with the Mafia.

After these thugs are thrown out of their territory, let’s hope that they’re indicted for RICO charges and other serious federal crimes. These marauders have dramatically restricted Americans’ civil rights. When our God-given rights are restricted, then it’s time for American patriots of all political parties to end this assault on society.

Without God-given civil rights, the US is just another place on the map. That’s because God-given civil rights are what make the US exceptional. Fighting for American exceptionalism is always worth it.

It’s impossible to say that the unofficial results of this unofficial poll are surprising. They aren’t slightly surprising. In fact, they’re utterly predictable. According to the unofficial polling, “Small business owners in Minneapolis who lost everything in the riots don’t want to lose their police department, too. But nobody thinks it should be business as usual, either. That view is shared by large and small companies, according to an informal survey conducted by the Star Tribune, which asked dozens of business owners if they support the recent pledge by a City Council majority to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department in response to public furor over the death of George Floyd.”

The other way to ask that question would be to ask whether these entrepreneurs would open businesses that ‘featured’ police-free zones. It isn’t surprising that the entrepreneurs replied this way:

“What I feel in my heart, and what millions of people feel, is that there is a young girl without a dad who should still be on the planet,” said restaurant owner Charles Stotts, whose Town Talk Diner & Gastropub was destroyed in the riots. “There needs to be a fix to this, whatever that fix is.”

Jonathan Weinhagen, president & CEO of the Minneapolis Regional Chamber, said the group’s members believe the city must reach out to “communities of color” and deliver “significant reform” to the department. After years of complaints, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights recently launched an investigation of the police department to determine if its officers have engaged in discriminatory practices toward people of color.

“We stand with Chief [Medaria] Arradondo and his efforts to hold officers accountable and dramatically overhaul policing in Minneapolis,” Weinhagen said in a statement. “Businesses are concerned about calls for abolishing or eliminating the police department. We believe it is important to maintain and improve public safety. And the necessary changes for the MPD will take consensus from the community and continual work from leaders across Minneapolis.”

This isn’t surprising because people want to feel protected. That’s people’s default position. That’s why the Minneapolis City Council’s announcement this weekend that at least 9 of the 13 city council members will support abolishing the MPD. This isn’t good news for the Council:

I was already kind of fed up with a lot of the lunatic ideas that have come out of the City Council, even before this,” said Don Blyly, who is facing $2 million in losses from the destruction of Uncle Hugo’s and Uncle Edgar’s bookstores on Chicago Avenue. “The police department needs to be fixed. But if they do the kind of things they are talking about now, then I will not rebuild in the city of Minneapolis.”

Investing in insanity is foolish. Rebuilding in a city that’s a police-free zone is downright stupid. Mr. Blyly doesn’t strike me as being a stupid man because stupid people aren’t often worth $2,000,000. This pain isn’t going away:

Like other business owners, Aloul was frustrated when he turned to the police for help during the riots. After looters broke into his store on Lake Street, he said he spotted several officers and asked for help. “They said we have instructions from the mayor not to interfere,” said Aloul, who lost an estimated $800,000 in tobacco products to looters. “I understand they were overwhelmed, but I think if they had fired off a couple of shots they could have scared people off.”

According to the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office website, the text of the oath of office for Minnesota mayors states “I, _____________________________________________________________ do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Minnesota, and that I will discharge faithfully the duties of the office of ______________________________ in the County of __________________________, the State of Minnesota, to the best of my judgment and ability.”

The first responsibility of a mayor is to protect his constituents. Instructing officers “not to interfere” with rioters, looters, many of whom were Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists, is proof that Mayor Frey didn’t faithfully discharge the duties of his office to the best of his judgment or ability. When police officers stand by while rioters throw Molotov cocktails, that isn’t discharging the duties of the mayor to the best of someone’s ability:
