It’s disgusting to see the Speaker of the US House of Representatives make disgusting statements about the officers of the Portland Police Department, aka PPD. She’s a vile and disgusting woman who should be thrown out of the People’s House. This week, Ms. Pelosi made an intentionally misleading statement in one of her tweets when she said “Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti. These are not the actions of a democratic republic. @DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission. Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”

The most powerful Democrat in the House then added more intentional deception, saying “First Amendment speech should never be met with one-sided violence from federal agents acting as Trump’s secret police, especially when unidentified. This is disgraceful behavior we would expect from a banana republic — not the government of the United States.”

The First Amendment doesn’t protect unpeaceful protests. This Portland Police Department tells a different story than the fiction that Ms. Pelosi told:

Here’s the text of the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

People throwing projectiles at police isn’t the portrait of people peaceably assembling. Ms. Pelosi knows that but she doesn’t care about details like that. Thank God for Ted Cruz’s response to Ms. Pelosi’s intentionally weaponized, deceptive statements:

Dan Crenshaw and Andy Ngo added this information:

This is what PPD reported about the arrests:

17 people charged with “interfering with a police officer
1 person charged with “Assaulting a Public Safety Officer”
31 year old Timothy Swales: Interfering with a Peace Officer, Reckless Endangering, Elude (Vehicle), Elude (Foot), Reckless Driving, Hit and Run

Ms. Pelosi omitted more than a few important details. That’s typical of her. She has an occasional relationship with the truth. Robby Starbuck captures things perfectly with this tweet:

Nick Arama’s article essentially reaches the same conclusion I reached in this article. We both think that ‘peaceful protesters’ are being used by Antifa and BLM rioters as human shields. Aramis writes “This may have been a protest at one point. But now these “protests” are just covers for the riots. This was a full-on planned assault on the police, not protest that got out of hand. Planned attack. And planned attempt to rip down the statue.”

Let’s ask this important question. Why is it that each riot was preceded by a peaceful protest? Let’s ask another question. Why does the MSM start each article talking about a peaceful protest? Why have we seen article after article about an evening starting off with peaceful protests that turn into riots just before midnight? I may have been born at night but it wasn’t last night. I’m not that gullible.

These articles are as implausible as Susan Rice’s Benghazi story that the Libya riots were started by a Youtube video. These ‘peaceful protest’ articles are as plausible as this testimony:

I agree with Nick on this, too:

It’s about time media start reporting the reality of it, that these are criminal attacks. They could have killed cops with what they did, who knows how many were injured because of this.

These aren’t peaceful protesters that the police attacked. They were rioters throwing projectiles at the police. They were rioters who wanted to tear down a statue:

Words matter. I’ve been blogging for 16 years. I know the difference between rioters and protesters. It’s easy to differentiate between the 2. Rioters are violent. Protesters aren’t. Another way to differentiate between rioters and protesters is by listening to protesters talking into a megaphone, saying “This is a peaceful protest. This is not the way”:

This election shouldn’t be that close. Joe Biden is barely able to form sentences, much less put together complete paragraphs. President Trump has put together an economic record that outshines any other recent president. Prior to the Chinese Communist Party Virus, wages were rising, minority unemployment was the lowest in this nation’s history and we were standing up to China for the first time in history.

It’s time to admit that, whether you like President Trump or not, he’s accomplished more in 3 years than Obama or Bush got done in 8 years each. It’s time to admit, too, that being presidential isn’t as important as making Americans’ lives better with great policies. To the disgusting Never Trump brigade, their hatred of Trump is more important to them than saving our nation.

David Limbaugh captures this perfectly in this column:

These establishment handwringers have shown themselves ill-equipped to analyze Trump or his supporters because they can’t adapt their expertise and experience to Trump, who broke the mold and is unlike any political figure they’ve ever encountered. They are handicapped by their blindness to the unprecedented fascism of today’s political left.

Newsflash: The overwhelming majority of Trump supporters don’t give a rip about his so-called presidentiality. They don’t care about the proverbial crease in his pants, or many other characteristics the pseudo-sophisticated Beltway elite cherish. They don’t want someone like Mitt Romney, who let President Barack Obama walk all over him in a presidential debate instead of fighting for what he purported to believe in.

This isn’t debate society, where judges rate which contestants used the proper verb and nuance to persuade the masses. This is a street fight, complete with baseball bats wrapped with barbed wire and other lethal weapons wielded by Marxists. If we don’t fight this fight with everything we’ve got, America will be lost.

Today’s Democrats don’t care about creating great policies. Hubert Humphrey’s, Bill Clinton’s or Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s Democrats cared about that. Those Democrats disappeared in 2006-07. Today’s Democrats are increasingly Marxist. Jessica Tarlov and Marie Harf can talk all they want about there being more moderate Democrats than Marxist AOC-Bernie Sanders Democrats. Joe Biden used to be somewhat of a centrist. Today, he’s telling hand-picked fawning reporters that he favors cutting funding for police officers while angry mobs attack police officers.

Today’s Democrats are busy “reimagining policing” while neighborhoods and family businesses get demolished by Antifa/BLM. Most importantly, Democrats aren’t listening to the people they’re supposed to represent. When white activists attend the Minneapolis Charter Commission hearing, then demand the dismantling of the MPD, that’s disgusting. Yes, they have the First Amendment right to air their grievances to the Commission. Let’s be honest, though. They’re calling for minority neighborhoods to lose police protection.

Fine. In the words of Harold Hamilton, if these activists want to dismantle the MPD, then let their neighborhoods go without police protection. Let their 9-1-1 calls get answered last. They wanted policing reimagined. Let their neighborhoods experience what it’s like to be vulnerable. Perhaps, that’ll trigger a woke awakening to reality.

It’s one thing to spew Democrat talking points. It’s quite another to live with the reality of Democrat policies.

Newt Gingrich has always been one of the best political thinkers in the business. When he writes or talks, I stop and listen to what he has to say. When I saw this article, I started digging into it. It didn’t take long to figure out that the Defund The Police Democrats are pushing a losing issue.

For instance, Gingrich wrote “The gap between the radical Left and the American people was captured in a recent Pew Poll that showed 73 percent of the American people opposed cutting spending on the police, and only 25 percent favored decreasing spending on the police.” Gingrich continued “Twenty percent of those asked said we should spend a little more on police, and 11 percent said we should spend a lot more (for a total of 31 percent who favor spending more money on policing). By contrast, 12 percent said to cut a lot, and slightly under 14 percent said to cut a little. The largest bloc of Americans was 42 percent, who said we should keep police funding where it is.”

Twenty-six percent of people wanted police spending cut a little or a lot. Everyone else wanted police spending kept the same, increased a little or increased a lot. That’s a 3:1 margin opposed to the Democrats’ Defund the Police policy.

It’s possible to win if you’re on the wrong side of a 3:1 issue if nobody cares about the issue. It’s impossible to win if you’re on the 1-side of a 3:1 issue that everyone cares passionately about.

This pattern is not just about speeches, slogans and platforms. Democrats in Minneapolis are abolishing the city’s police department and replacing it with some undefined community service program. You can imagine how intimidated robbers, murderers and rapists will be by the unarmed-but-sincere Minneapolis community service force.

In Seattle, Democrats are cutting the police budget by 50 percent with a similar community service fantasy replacement. Given that six people were shot, which led to the death of two teenagers, during what the Democratic mayor called “the summer of love” in the city’s “autonomous zone,” you might have thought the people of Seattle would get more police protection rather than less.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best calls Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan’s plan to cut the SPD budget by 50% “reckless”:

Democrats like Pelosi, Schumer and Biden can insist that they aren’t for defunding the police all they want. What matters is Seattle cutting the SPD budget by 50%, Minneapolis voting to dismantle the MPD and Bill de Blasio cutting the $6,000,000,000 NYPD budget by $1,000,000,000. When crime rates skyrocket, Democrats will pay the price. Republicans are proposing reasonable reforms but they’re pushing cities to increase spending on police departments, too. The American people are smart enough to know that Republicans are proposing things that keep people safe and that Democrats are the party that support Antifa, BLM and decimated police departments.

People either understood or anticipated that COVID would eventually get defeated. They took COVID seriously but it wasn’t something that they were afraid of. This violence worries people. It isn’t just quarantined to poor neighborhoods. It’s migrated into Manhattan, some rich neighborhoods in St. Louis and Seattle. The point is that this violence doesn’t recognize geographic boundaries. It goes where it wants.

That’s why the Democrats defund debate is a loser.

Derek Hunter’s Townhall article is titled “Liberal’s All-Out Assault On Free Speech” is a frightening assault on the English language. Frankly, it’s sloppy and incorrect. Hunter wrote “While the “conservatives” at the time were the ones imposing penalties on speech, it’s now the liberals seeking to do the same, and worse. The idea of criminalizing so-called “hate speech” has been popular with college-aged liberals for a while now. While normal people laughed at those stupid college kids needing safe spaces when someone was on campus saying things they didn’t agree with and requiring “trigger warnings” before engaging in normal human conversations on subject that might cause them to need a diaper change, liberals were busy looking for an opportunity to use this childishness to their advantage. They found it…by becoming them.”

The people “imposing penalties on speech” aren’t liberals. They’re progressives. There’s a world of difference between liberals and progressives. Democrats like Hubert Humphrey and Daniel Patrick Moynihan were liberal policywise but their liberalism had a healthy libertarian streak to it. Today’s progressives, like AOC, Adam Schiff or any Antifa/BLM member, have a fascist streak running through them.

We can’t defeat progressivism or the Cancel Culture if we aren’t properly identifying them. Cancel Culture’s fascism and BLM’s Marxism have totalitarian underpinnings to them. They aren’t interested in compromise, principled or otherwise. They’re interested in domination and total victory. Antifa ‘warriors’ often sound tougher than they are but their principle tactic is intimidation. In this instance, they ran into police prepared to deal with their intimidation:

These aren’t liberal protesters getting chased. They’re fascist thugs attempting to disrupt and potentially demolish a city. In this case, they were trying to destroy Portland, OR. This time, the fascists lost.

What we call them determine what weapons and tactics are required for the situation. Against fascists, I know that I’m not changing hearts and minds. My highest priority is protecting myself. That means we should think in terms of getting into a street fight. That means becoming a hardened target. Once we’re operating with that mindset, we’re properly prepared for the fight at hand.

Jason Lewis debated Paul Wellstone often. At the end of the debate, they’d compliment each other for the good points they’d made. Antifa sees that as a sign of weakness. Lewis vs. Wellstone is like Psalm 23, which says “Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me.” The Street Version of Psalm 23 goes like this: “Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil because I’m the biggest, baddest SOB in the valley.”

According to this article, Minneapolis isn’t the only city that’s planning on dismantling their police department. According to Sophie Mann’s reporting, “The Black Lives Matter Philadelphia chapter is calling for the “complete abolition” of the city’s police department in the next five years.”

In their own words

“One of the things that we are demanding over five years is the complete abolition. We don’t want to see any police in our community. Over the course of those five years, it gives time for the community to begin to build what is needed. We aren’t looking to leave any kind of vacancy around the issue of safety,” BLM activist YahNé Ndgo told Fox News.

Without police, there isn’t safety. That’s been proven in NYC, Minneapolis and Chicago. The notion that social workers will replace the police is beyond absurd.

The history of the police force is “centered around the ruling class and protection of the ruling class and being an extension of the system of oppression,” said Ndgo. “Quite often, if there is violence happening, by the time the police arrive, that has already occurred and particularly in poor neighborhoods and in black and brown communities. So the police are not really a resource for preventing that kind of crime from happening. Just a response,” she continued.

Years of understaffing (and undercutting) police officers has made Philadelphia a less-than-safe city. What’s needed is a culture change in Philadelphia, starting with their mayor, city council and police chief. The passivity of the Philadelphia city government helps feed the ineffectiveness of the police force. This sends the wrong message:

It’s foolish to think that this won’t beget more rioting, violence or disorder. Weakness begets weakness. That’s been proven in Atlanta, Chicago, Minneapolis, NYC and Seattle in the last month. That’s because there’s lots of bad people out there. Dismantling the police is just a way to turn a difficult situation into a terrible situation.

These ‘protesters’ aren’t entirely peaceful. They’re there as human shields for the anarchists, looters and rioters.

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. 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.
