When Jason Lewis represented Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District, one of the DFL’s lynch mobs, TakeAction Minnesota, aka TAM, visited Lewis’s private home, which I wrote about here. This is what I wrote at the time:

These aren’t frustrated people trying to contact a politician about an important issue. They’re people who didn’t think twice about intimidating young women in their own homes. That isn’t acceptable. That’s what playground bullies do.

TAM went onto Jason Lewis’s private property without hesitation. As I wrote years earlier, Democrats are big into visiting people’s private homes, then threatening and intimidating their targets’ children with their tactics.

Fast forward to today. The Democrats’ tactics haven’t changed. The politicians change depending on who needs to be intimidated. This time, the intimidators of choice are Black Lives Matter and the politician receiving intimidation is State Sen. Warren Limmer. BLM criminals (they were videotaped trespassing on Sen. Limmer’s private property) did their best to intimidate Sen. Limmer:


From Sen. Limmer’s perspective:

“We were watching it on my Ring doorbell and … you get a different feeling when you see people slithering up to my front door, opening it and then pounding and yelling, demanding that I come out to greet the mob,” Limmer said. “And it really isn’t anything – that type of thing, no one in America should experience.”

From BLM’s perspective:

“You will come and talk to us, otherwise you will never run in (sic) office again,” one man, who was shirtless and wearing what appeared to be a swim cap, yelled as he banged on Limmer’s door. “You can’t say that any more politely,” he added as he walked away from the door.

A woman followed him with a more tactful approach: “We just want a little information here, that’s all … You could come out and talk with us, you know. That’s one of the easiest ways to deal with people that are protesting you, is to come talk with us.”

Establishment Democrats insist that they’re mostly moderates. I’ve called that a lie since 2010. BLM isn’t moderate. Antifa is further left than BLM. Justice Democrats are further left than Antifa and BLM put together. What’s interesting is that the 4 people in this video are white:

While these protests weren’t nasty like other protests have been, it’s still intimidating to have thugs show up at your private home. This isn’t protected by the First Amendment because BLM was trespassing. Here’s hoping Sen. Limmer forwards this video to law enforcement and presses charges against these criminals. Once the people start trespassing, there shouldn’t be any mercy shown to the criminals.

While much has been written about the Democrats’ disastrous performance during yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, one thing hasn’t gotten enough coverage. What needs more amplification is the need to throw out the children running the House Judiciary Committee and replace them with adults. The winner of yesterday’s hearing was determined before Bill Barr read his opening statement.

That doesn’t mean that AG Barr didn’t cut Democrats when Democrats weren’t reclaiming their time. As Michael Goodwin notes in his column, Barr said “This is the first time in my memory that the leaders of one of our two great political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence” then asked “Can’t we just say the violence against the federal courts has to stop? Could we hear something like that?”

That’s beyond disgraceful. The Democrats haven’t said a thing about Antifa’s attacks against the federal courthouse in Portland or the federal law enforcement officers protecting the building. That’s especially disgusting since 3 of those officers were blinded for life by laser lights. In this video, Pelosi called the federal law enforcement officers “stormtroopers”:

Democrats are the party that’s pushing the defund the police movement. Democrats are the ones that talked about the Seattle CHOP zone perhaps turning into the ‘Summer of Love’ Zone. About 4 minutes into this video, Mayor Durkan made that historic statement:

Democrats are too stupid or too passive or both to be in charge of anything. Anyone watching yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing knows that Democrats on that committee aren’t that bright. Anyone watching Minneapolis, NY City, Portland or Seattle knows that the mayors of those cities with a fist of mashed potatoes. Anarchists, Antifa and agitators rule those cities’ streets.

Democrats are the party that push propaganda that insists it’s too dangerous to send children back to school. That’s an outright lie. Nowhere in the world has a child transmitted COVID to a teacher. That’s because children aren’t spreaders. That’s because children are the least likely to contract the virus.

Do you want dishonest stupid people in charge of anything? If you’re voting for most Democrats, that’s what you’re getting. This isn’t Bill Clinton’s relatively rational Democrat Party. This is AOC’s and Bernie’s Socialist Party.

Finally, a Biden administration likely means Keith Ellison as Attorney General. If that doesn’t frighten you, then you’re hopeless.

It’s apparent that Democrats are attempting to provide a contrast between their law enforcement ideas and the Republicans’ plans for restoring safety to America’s streets. The comparison couldn’t be more unmistakable. The choice facing the American people is between Democrats defending riots in Portland, Seattle and Minneapolis vs. the Trump administration’s sending in federal law enforcement officers to protect neighborhoods and federal buildings.

Andy Ngo is providing incredible images from Portland. Check this out:

This is the definition of disgusting behavior:


Portland media is pretty much leftist fringe. They’d get along great with AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. But I digress.

Before the hearing, Chairman Nadler was in a car accident. That was just the start of Nadler’s terrible day. He should’ve seen it as an omen of things to come. Not surprisingly, Axios published a partial transcript of Nadler’s accusations:

  1. First, under your leadership, the Department has endangered Americans and violated their constitutional rights by flooding federal law enforcement into the streets of American cities, against the wishes of the state and local leaders of those cities, to forcefully and unconstitutionally suppress dissent.
  2. Second, at your direction, Department officials have downplayed the effects of systemic racism and abandoned the victims of police brutality; refused to hold abusive police departments accountable for their actions; and expressed open hostility to the Black Lives Matter movement.
  3. Third, in coordination with the White House, the Department has spread disinformation about voter fraud, failed to enforce voting rights laws, and attempted to change the census rules to flaunt the plain text of the Constitution—all in the apparent attempt to assist the President’s reelection.
  4. Fourth, at the President’s request, the Department has amplified the President’s conspiracy theories and shielded him from responsibility by blatantly misrepresenting the Mueller Report and failing to hold foreign actors accountable for their attacks on our elections—undermining both national security and the Department’s professional staff in the process.
  5. Fifth, again and again, you personally have interfered with ongoing criminal investigations to protect the President and his allies from the consequences of their actions.
  6. Finally, and perhaps most perniciously, the Department has placed the President’s political needs over the public health by challenging stay-at-home orders in the states hit hardest by the pandemic. The Department’s persistent efforts to gut the Affordable Care Act will make recovery that much harder.

Expressing open hostility towards the Black Lives Matter movement isn’t a disgrace. It’s sound judgment. Further, I’d argue that Democrats have turned a blind eye towards black-on-black crime. Republicans have expressed hostility towards the BLM movement because BLM’s founders are admitted “trained Marxists.” That isn’t racist. The rest of Nadler’s accusations plus a dollar are worth less than a dollar. The accusations are typical ‘throw everything at the wall and hope that something sticks’ Democrat special.

Michael Goodwin’s column feasts on what’s left of Nadler’s carcass:

He came, he saw, he ate their lunch. Bill Barr, denied a meal break, feasted instead on a gaggle of Democratic amateurs.

Another congressional hearing, another Dem disaster. They planned a public hanging of the attorney general and spent weeks constructing their scaffold. He is corrupt, a liar, a toady, they and their media handmaidens assured us, and the House Judiciary Committee will reveal all.

Two obstacles quickly became apparent. The first is that the Dems were led by Rep. Jerry Nadler, whose rabidness is exceeded only by his haplessness.

When it comes to train wrecks, nobody does it better than Nadler. What he’s missing in intellectual heft, he makes up for with oversized ego. It’s why Pelosi demoted him during the Democrats’ failed impeachment attempt. It isn’t a stretch to say that Nadler is the worst chairman in the history of the House Judiciary Committee.

Yesterday’s fiasco in the House Judiciary Committee was both frightening and embarrassing. Back when Republicans ran the House, committee hearings had plenty of grandstanding but they broke plenty of news, too. Tuesday’s hearing of the House Impeachment Rubberstamp Committee (that’s what it’s famous for these days) got off to a terrible start when Chairman Jerry Nadler got into a car accident on his way to the hearing. It isn’t a stretch to say that it went downhill after that. Perhaps, the accident should be viewed as an omen.

Two things became immediately clear the minute the hearing got started. First, Democrats weren’t going to let William Barr answer their questions. Next, these Democrats were going to pound home the theme that Portland’s riots were “mostly peaceful protests.” At one point, Barr interrupted the Democrats and said (I’m paraphrasing here) “This is a hearing. Shouldn’t I be heard?”

The ‘Wall of Moms’ aren’t female patriots. Reporting from Portland indicates that they’re human shields used to protect weapons-carrying Antifa/BLM rioters. That isn’t what patriots do.

The Democrats’ storyline was demolished during Steve Chabot’s questioning of AG Barr:

It was demolished when AG Barr asked the rhetorical question “The courts are under attack. Since when is it ok to try to burn down a federal court? If someone went down the street to the Prettyman Court, that beautiful courthouse we have right at the bottom of the hill, and started breaking windows and firing industrial grade fireworks to start a fire and threw in kerosene balloons and start fires in the court, is that ok? Is that ok now?”

When AG Barr tried answering the Democrats’ questions in ways that didn’t advance the Democrats’ storyline, they’d cut AG Barr off, saying that their time was limited and that they were reclaiming their time. I didn’t keep count of how often Democrats pulled that stunt but it was easily a dozen times. Barr would then politely stop his reply and let Democrats make asses of themselves:

Democrats looked like jerks and idiots throughout. When Democrats didn’t get the answer they wanted, the frequent reply was “I’m reclaiming my time.” Democrats had a storyline that they’d established and they weren’t deviating from it.

What’s disgusting is that Nadler, Lofgren and the other Democrat idiots didn’t do is propose a solution to the anarchists torching once-beautiful cities like Seattle, Portland and Chicago. Democrats spent the day insisting that federal law enforcement officers were the bad guys and that Antifa-BLM rioters were the good guys.

If you want to live with a Democrat majority that thinks that burning down “the system” is the right thing to do, just vote Democrat. If you’re a thoughtful person who cherishes peaceful streets where riots are stopped quickly, you must vote for Republicans. It’s that simple.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, aka Humpty Dumpty, insists that the Portland are a figment of Fox’s imagination. This article is proof that Humpty is a blithering idiot. The article states “The Oregonian reported that authorities responded to reports of gunfire in downtown Portland and an apparent victim was treated at a hospital after being taken there in a private vehicle. The report pointed out that it was not immediately clear if the shooting was related to the protest, which marked its 60th consecutive night in the city.”

Then it continues, saying “Police said they found a bag containing loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails at a nearby park. A photo of the items was shared in a tweet from police late Sunday saying someone pointed out the bag to officers at Lownsdale Square Park late Sunday. No further information was immediately released. It wasn’t clear if either incident was connected to the demonstrations.”


If Portland’s peaceful protesters use these tools, then they aren’t peaceful protesters:

On July 26, 2020 while Portland Police were investigating a shots fired call near Lownsdale Square Park a passerby pointed out a suspicious bag to them. Police examined the bag and found that it contained loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails. Police recovered the bag. The origin of this ammunition and these destructive devices is under investigation.

I won’t hold my breath waiting for Humpty Dumpty to issue his apology. Let’s remember that CNN is one of the organizations that’s already settled with Nicholas Sandman for defaming him.

Portland’s rioters took to the streets for the sixtieth straight night last night. In other news, rioters presented Ted Wheeler, Portland’s spineless mayor, with this list of demands:

The progressive mayor on Wednesday night entered the chaotic epicenter of Portland to engage in listening sessions with the rioters. Instead, the crowds castigated him and presented him with a list of demands that included defunding the police and for Wheeler himself to resign.

That’s mindful of this scene from Minneapolis:

What is it about these wimpy progressive mayors? Were they built to be wimps?

Antifa is perfectly willing to threaten or intimidate virtually anyone, including Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of Homeland Security. This article tells the story of ‘protesters’ showing up at Secretary Wolf’s home:

Protesters marched to Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf’s home in Alexandria, Virginia, on Sunday to demand an end to the deployment of federal officers in response to unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Demonstrators began to gather at an intersection near Wolf’s home in Alexandria on Sunday morning at around 10:15 a.m.

That’s roughly the time Secretary Wolf started his interview with Maria Bartiromo. Anyone thinking that that’s a coincidence is kidding themselves.

Marching under the “Shut Down D.C.” banner, they then made their way to the DHS chief’s home where activists were pictured gathering outside with signs that read “Resist Trump’s Troops” and “No more teargas, no more tearing families apart.”

“We know there are no career consequences for these men and women. We know there are no financial consequences for these men and women. We know there are no legal consequences for these men and women. We must make social consequences for these men and women,” one protester could be heard saying in video posted to Twitter by journalist Julio Rosas.

There aren’t any consequences for protecting law-abiding citizens. That’s what DHS officers have done thus far. PS- There shouldn’t be consequences for protecting law-abiding citizens. There should only be consequences for law-breaking citizens.

In recent days, Wolf has faced growing scrutiny over his role in overseeing the deployment of federal law enforcement to Portland, where officers have clashed with demonstrators for weeks.

It isn’t enough to highlight the fact that Portland doesn’t have a protest problem. Portland has a rioting problem even though CNN’s Brian Stelter insists that it’s a “gross exaggeration. It just is.”

Oh really, Mr. Stelter?

An official with the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service said several officers sustained serious eye injuries after protesters pointed lasers in their eyes. According to FOX 13, Deputy Director of Operations Richard Cline said officers were putting out fires set by protesters when they were accosted with lasers.

“When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers, which can cause permanent blindness, were shined in their eyes,” Cline told FOX 13. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.” The FPS has since purchased anti-laser glasses officers are now wearing, according to FOX 13.

DHS’s FPS division showed up to put out fires. Those fires have been confirmed by videos from the ground. If Humpty Dumpty wants to dispute the authenticity of the video, have at it.

Further, the fires confirm that the violence is real. There’s a portion of the night that’s used by protesters. Unfortunately for the Democrats’ storyline, those protesters support what the rioters are doing. The faux protesters are used to tie up officers while the rioters sneak in supplies for the riot during the dark of night.

While Democrat leftists caterwaul about “Gestapo activities” in Portland, these Democrat leftists ignore the fact that businesses are permanently closing their doors. Apparently, Democrats don’t care about the guys who run places like Old Town Pizza & Brewing. Old Town Pizza & Brewing recently finished the day “with just $18.75 in sales.”

It’s just another sad story in a series of sad stories radiating out from Democrat-run cities. Adam Milne, the owner of Old Town Pizza & Brewing, recently said “I think all restaurants are really hurting and struggling, but I’m not sure if the city and state officials realize that to be a restaurant and to be in downtown Portland right now is a double blow. Not only are we suffering from the pandemic, but we have an area of the state that everyone is avoiding eating and drinking.”

Thanks to Antifa’s and BLM’s nightly riots, only an idiot would venture into downtown Portland. Meanwhile, Democrat House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said this on CNN:


Rep. Clyburn should be thrown out of the House for uttering that type of BS. Instead of challenging him on making such an incendiary statement, CNN just let it go. This isn’t some back-bench bomb-thrower. This is the third-ranking Democrat in the House. Further, he’s the guy that helped Joe Biden win the Democrats’ presidential nomination. Without Clyburn’s nomination right before the South Carolina Primary, Bernie would be the Democrats’ nominee.

Speaking of Mr. Biden, here’s what he said in an ad about uniting the country:

First, Biden hasn’t criticized Portland’s violence with the exception of him criticizing federal law enforcement:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that the Trump administration was deploying Department of Homeland Security officers in Portland without clearly defined goals, even as department officials defended their efforts to eliminate violent protests. “We have a president who is determined to sow chaos and division,” said Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee to challenge President Donald Trump on Nov. 3. “To make matters worse instead of better.”

I guess that’s Biden’s way of uniting the nation. Criticizing law enforcement officers who are protecting a federal courthouse isn’t uniting people. It’s being a loud-mouthed jerk, then pretending to be a uniter.

The question is whether Americans will admit that they see what’s happening. Joe Biden isn’t pro-law enforcement. He’s for whatever keeps Democrats together. In his minute-long ad, Biden talked about representing all Americans, whether they voted for him or not. What we’ve heard from, though, are the words of a divider, the words of a hate-filled man.

Joe Biden won’t challenge Ted Wheeler, Portland’s mayor. He won’t stop the rioting, either. Frankly, Joe Biden doesn’t know how to challenge Democrats. Whatever they want to do is fine with him. Portland is proof of that.

FOOTNOTE: When Barack Obama was president and Biden was his vice president, they were openly hostile to the police. Read about what they did in Ferguson. Remember that they didn’t lift a finger to stop Chicago’s violence, either. If you want more of the same, vote Biden. If you want safe streets, vote Trump. It’s that simple.

Buck Sexton’s op-ed exposes the Democrats’ intentions to transform the United States into something resembling a third-world dictatorship. Sexton also highlights the media’s role in running interference for the domestic terrorists.

For almost two months, Portland has been under siege from Antifa and other extremists. These troops of the left terrorize the downtown area every night. They operate with paramilitary precision. As organized anarchists, they deploy a wide array of less than lethal weapons to wound police, ranging from bats and bricks to lasers shot in the eyes of officers to permanently damage their sight. All of this is to further their goal to overturn our society and radically transform the country.

Antifa isn’t murdering anyone. That type of violence would strip the MSM and other Democrats of their ability to spin Portland as a peaceful protest that got out of control. Instead, Antifa and BLM use tactics that destroy police officers’ lives without killing them. Without the bloodshed, it’s difficult to characterize Antifa/BLM as terrorists.

While it’s difficult to characterize Antifa/BLM as terrorists, it isn’t impossible. It just takes patience and logic. Once people explain to the average person what tactics Antifa/BLM uses, those people understand quickly. It’s clear that they’re participating in a riot. Judge Mukasey explained today that some of the crimes that Antifa/BLM are committing are legitimate predication for RICO indictments.

If the news media cared to tell the public the truth, it would have been a top story on nightly broadcasts for weeks. The Antifa rioters even tried to break into and burn down a federal courthouse in the city. The campaign of intimidation and destruction is plainly domestic terrorism. But the one reason the siege on Portland has become a major news story is because the administration is trying to restore law and order to the beleaguered city, and Democrats hysterically oppose any such action.

Thus far, Democrats have shown their hatred of police officers on a nightly basis. Check this out:


Before Jessica Tarlov or some other dishonest leftist mouthpiece says that these aren’t Democrats, I’ll just remind them that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler spent the night with the rioters. Democrats in Oregon have filed lawsuits against the federal government to prevent them from doing their jobs, too. These are public officials who don’t want to enforce the laws of their city and state. There’s tons of proof that Democrats don’t want to enforce existing laws. Bill de Blasio has threatened to file a lawsuit if President Trump tries stopping the violence. That’s fine. Let that festering hellhole turn into a warzone where people can’t live. It doesn’t matter to me. I don’t live there.

If Democrats don’t want to enforce the laws, President Trump should fund advertisements telling Portlanders that states like the Carolinas, Georgia, Texas and Florida take law enforcement seriously and that their states aren’t shooting galleries. If Democrats won’t stand with police officers, then Portland shouldn’t be surprised when people vote with their mortgages.

PS- Why hasn’t Joe Biden spoken out against Portland’s violence? Is it because he’s counting on getting Antifa’s votes while maintaining his image that he’s a centrist? His silence says everything.

Buck Sexton’s op-ed exposes the Democrats’ intentions to transform the United States into something resembling a third-world dictatorship. Sexton also highlights the media’s role in running interference for the domestic terrorists.

All of this is to further their goal to overturn our society and radically transform the country.

Antifa isn’t murdering anyone. They’re blinding federal law enforcement agents. The thing is that they’re participating in a riot. They don’t have to commit murders or violent crimes to be convicted and put in prison for decades. The deterrent with federal crimes is lengthy prison sentences in a federal penitentiary.

If the news media cared to tell the public the truth, it would have been a top story on nightly broadcasts for weeks. The Antifa rioters even tried to break into and burn down a federal courthouse in the city. The campaign of intimidation and destruction is plainly domestic terrorism.

Democrats in Oregon have filed lawsuits against the federal government to prevent them from doing their jobs, too. These are public officials who don’t want to enforce the laws of their city and state.

Democrats who won’t enforce their own laws but will file lawsuits attempting to prevent federal law enforcement officers from upholding federal law hate police. Another bit of proof that Democrats hate police is that Democrats have been totally silent about the Antifa rioters who used lasers to blind for life police officers. Officers that can’t function shouldn’t be ignored. Democrats have essentially ignored these officers wounded in the line of duty.

According to this resolution, racism is a health crisis. That isn’t my implication. That’s from HR1 from the House Second Special Session. The resolution starts by saying “A House resolution declaring racism a public health crisis. WHEREAS, race is a social construct with no biological basis; and WHEREAS, racism is embedded in the foundation of America, beginning with chattel slavery in 1619; and WHEREAS, much of the Black experience in America has been endured under slavery and Jim Crow, which created preferential opportunities for white people while subjecting people of color to hardships and disadvantages in every area of life;”

First, let’s dispose of the myth that the United States started in 1619. In 1619, the colonies were still under British rule. The Boston Tea Party, which was one of the first rebellious acts by the colonies against British governance, didn’t happen until Dec. 16, 1773. This is proof that timelines matter. The British indeed loved a two-tiered system of government. Royalty and commoners weren’t supposed to mix. The US didn’t want that system so they did something revolutionary.

The US said that our rights came from “Nature’s God” and that “all men are created equal.” The 56 men who signed the Declaration believed that each person was created in the image of Nature’s God. That’s why the US fought a civil war to end slavery. The US is the only nation that’s fought a war to abolish slavery. That isn’t something that a nation committed to systematic slavery would do.

Even after the Civil War, the Confederacy, the home of the Democrat Party, still insisted on building impediments to full-fledged liberty. That’s what Jim Crow was about. It’s a biological fact. Next, most of the embedded pockets of racism, especially slavery and Jim Crow, were mostly found in the South when Democrats reigned supreme:

Black codes were strict local and state laws that detailed when, where and how formerly enslaved people could work, and for how much compensation. The codes appeared throughout the South as a legal way to put Black citizens into indentured servitude, to take voting rights away, to control where they lived and how they traveled and to seize children for labor purposes.

If the DFL wants to admit that the GOP was created to end slavery and that Democrats were the party of the KKK, Jim Crow and the Confederacy, that’s fine. The things that Democrats have stood for have been evil. Recently, Democrats haven’t protected minorities, letting Antifa and BLM rioters destroy minority-owned businesses and minority-owned neighborhoods. Democrats called for the dismantling of the police departments that protect minority neighborhoods.

WHEREAS, public health disparities have persisted for over 400 years and there are long-standing, unaddressed disparities as well as systemic racism and other socioeconomic inequities;

That’s a lie. The problems within the black community first appeared after LBJ’s signing of the Great Society legislation. Since then, poverty in minority neighborhoods has tripled.

WHEREAS, more than 100 studies have linked racism to worse health outcomes; and WHEREAS, in Minnesota the highest excess death rates exist for Black and Indigenous communities, at every age demographic; and WHEREAS, Minnesota must address persistent disparities in health outcomes and the social, economic, educational, and environmental inequities that contribute to them;

Linking worse health outcomes to racism is BS. How many of these ‘studies’ are peer-reviewed and questioned? Might outcomes improve if schools taught the value of proper nutrition?
