Portland

Your Quality Of Life In A Democrat-Run City

Whether the Democrats on the Minneapolis City Council are pandering to the Far Left or grandstanding for the media is largely irrelevant to those who now live in this Democrat-run dystopian Hell, where the little people are told to submit to the criminals instead of calling the police and the elite leadership class lives in a private security protected bubble, insulated from the crime-ridden Hell they’ve created.

Democrats Embrace Riots And Socialist Revolution

Attorney General Barr recently made a key point that every American should keep in mind going into the 2020 election, “What makes me concerned for the country is this is the first time in my memory the leaders of one of our great two political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts.” Barr left hanging the obvious reason why Democrats have failed to condemn the violence in Portland – it’s their allies and voters who are trying to burn down the courthouse, and the American constitutional republic with it.

When cancel culture thugs strike, Americans must push back

Robert Knight, Washington Times

Like the ongoing violence in major cities such as Portland, Oregon, or the bullying of corporations, attacks on Catholic churches is part of the left’s accelerated cultural change. Marxism requires destroying reminders of heritage so that a new culture of stone-cold socialism can rise on the ashes. It should alarm us that the Democratic Party has shed its liberal persona and is all in for the revolution. Asked about the mob throwing a statue of Christopher Columbus into Baltimore Harbor, Nancy Pelosi shrugged and said, “People are going to do what they do.” It's clear nobody will be allowed to sit this out.

Joe Biden Calls for Jihad Against America

Former CIA operator Clare M. Lopez parsed Joe Biden's speech to the "Million Muslim Votes” summit, sponsored by a Muslim Brotherhood operation called Emgage Action, and presents the evidence that, while Biden probably had no idea what he was actually saying, every informed Muslim listening to him understood that he was encouraging them to wage jihad against non-believing Americans.

The Khe Sanh of the Pacific Northwest

What’s going on in Portland is a microbattle in the larger Leftwing insurgency against the legitimate government of the United States, and it should be understood as an opportunity to draw in and destroy – through legal means – those who are attempting to overthrow the constitutional order and establish a “liberation government” in Oregon.

Vandals, Marxists, Antifa lay siege to Portland, while Dems decry federal intervention

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

In today’s upside-down world, the federal government coming to the aid of a city under siege has enraged Democratic leadership such as Nancy Pelosi. Democratic leadership calls federal law enforcement “stormtroopers” as local leadership fights against assistance to stop murderous crimes waves killing their cities. The rhetoric against police continues, and police budgets are getting cut, as in New York, where certain crime units have already been disbanded. Democrats revel in anarchy and mayhem, and throwing your family into the volcano is the price they decided is worth paying as they imagine making Mr. Trump look bad.

The Disgrace of Portland

Rich Lowry, National Review

This isn’t hard: It is the people attacking federal property who bear moral responsibility for what’s happening in Portland. In all the cities around the country where nihilistic mobs aren’t trying to burn down symbols of our justice system, there’s no enhanced presence of federal officers. It would be one thing if municipal authorities could legitimately claim that they have things under control. They don’t. The mobs have been clashing with the local cops for months. This longstanding riot is a stark commentary on the misgovernance of Mayor Wheeler, who is better at insulting federal law enforcement than doing his job.

Portland, Oregon Joins The Confederate States Of America

In actions eerily reminiscent of those of public officials during and after pre-Civil War Baltimore’s “Pratt Street Riot,” Portland city and Oregon state officials have taken the side of anti-government insurgents. And, even worse than their Confederate-sympathizing Democrat antecedents, they have not only joined the rebel side, but have refused to keep and maintain order, in what was formerly one of the jewels of the Pacific Northwest.

Ted Cruz: No Bailouts For Minneapolis, Portland and Seattle

The toll-free Capitol switchboard is (1-866-220-0044). We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Whip John Thune to tell them you support Senator Cruz’s proposed legislation to make local governments liable to private property owners if officials deliberately withhold police protection.

Why Not Make Sanctuary Cities Pay For The Border Wall?

According to our friends at openthebooks.com “sanctuary cities” extort almost $27 billion from American taxpayers to pursue their unconstitutional scheme to nullify the immigration laws passed by Congress. Withholding federal funds from just two of them would more than pay for the wall in just one year, and the rest would be gravy for the taxpayers of jurisdictions whose elected officials follow the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress.
