Charges Dropped Against Portland Rioters

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee grouses that only about 300 people have been imprisoned for alleged participation in the Capitol Riot; she thinks it should be more like 40,000. Meanwhile, regarding the far more destructive riots that occurred literally every night for months on end in Portland,

As the Biden administration has taken the reins of the Department of Justice, the feds have dismissed dozens of charges against violent rioters in Portland, Oregon. They have dropped charges such as assault on a law enforcement officer, arson, and other violent crimes. Many have been dropped with prejudice, meaning they can’t be re-litigated in the future. According to a local news outlet, federal prosecutors have dismissed more than one-third of the pending charges from last summer’s violent protests in Portland.

More dismissals are expected. It looks like few if any Antifa or Black Lives Matter thugs will still be imprisoned a year from now for crimes committed during the riots in Portland.

The Department of Justice stepped in as riots terrorized Portland throughout the summer of 2020, and Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced he would not prosecute most riot crimes committed in Portland. … Attorney General William Barr instructed federal prosecutors to aggressively pursue rioters across the country…

But with the ascension of Biden’s handlers to power, the same type of left-wing extremists who run Portland run the federal government.

As noted at Hot Air,

This looks less like an evidentiary problem and more like a political decision by the incoming administration. One has to wonder whether the Biden administration will treat the January 6 rioters with the same charity… [A]ttempts to pick and choose enforcement like this will only bring on more violence from the fringes on both sides.

This is not a bug but a feature. Political violence is all good, from the viewpoint of Biden’s handlers.

Violence by the Right will be inflated out of proportion and hyped by the media/Democrat Party. For example, only one person died violently in the Capitol Riot, and that was the unarmed Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by the police. Yet the liberal establishment continues to exploit it aggressively.

Violence by the Left intimidates people into silence and compliance, as radicals remake America into a very different country, in which the fundamental principle of equality before the law no longer exists.

Rep Dean Phillips Exploits Capitol Riot

Not to be outdone by the extravagant theatrics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (who in reality was not even in the Capitol building), aspiring drama queen Dean Phillips (D-MN) has milked the Capitol Riot for every drop of pathos and political advantage.

As per the official Democrat narrative, he pretends that the mob was racially motivated and ignores that it was hostile to Republicans like Mike Pence and Mitch McConnell. His voice wobbles with a repulsively sheeplike bleat as he begs us to forgive him for his “white privilege.”

To be ruled by people of this caliber is the ultimate insult:

Phillips represents the suburbs west of Minneapolis, a city that has sustained massive and still largely unrepaired damage from repeated Black Lives Matter rioting, during which a police station was actually set ablaze. Whereas he implies that all Republicans and all white people share blame for the Capitol Riot, he refuses to hold left-wing rioters accountable for the havoc they wreak:

A Minnesota congressman asserted that Black Lives Matter and other leftist groups are not responsible for violence and rioting that plagued U.S. cities for months.

That congressman was Phillips.

Nicole Wallace Suggests Drone Strikes on Deplorables

For the past month, we have had it drilled through our heads by the liberal establishment media that the hooligans who took advantage of lax security to riot in the Capitol are domestic terrorists. That same media has relentlessly conflated these alleged terrorists with anyone likely to have voted for Trump.

Liberal demigod Barack Obama demonstrated how Democrats deal with terrorists when he used a drone strike to assassinate American-born Anwar Awlaki without due process. MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace appears to draw the conclusion that drone strikes should be used on deplorables who disapprove of election fraud and COVID-19 tyranny:

“[T]here is … a persistent threat of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism, carried out in the ideology and around this belief that the election was fraudulent, that the COVID restrictions are unnecessary…

“We had a policy … of attacking terrorism at its root, of going after and killing, and in the case of Anwar Awlaki, an American, a Yemeni-American, with a drone strike for the crime of inciting violence, inciting terrorism. …

“[T]he way you root out terrorism, is to take on, in the case of Islamic terrorism, kill, those who incite it.”

When Eric Swalwell sneered that the Second Amendment does not defend us from tyranny because the federal government can use nuclear weapons on us, he might have been more serious than we realized. Seventy-four million Americans voted for Trump. That’s too many to kill with drones.

Watch in horror as Nicole Wallace installs homicidal notions in the heads of the impressionable zombies watching CNN:

This was the second night in a row she brought up drone strikes. The night before, she had even more explicitly implied that a certain former US President might have one coming:

“If you took what President Trump said, and instead put it in Anwar Awlaki’s mouth, we would be talking about a drone strike overseas.”

The leftists who run the “mainstream” media are domestic extremists. They appear to be dangerous.

Dems Donate to Alleged Axe-Wielding Maniac

Don’t be too hard on Kamala Harris for raising funds to bail out rioters so that they can go back to trashing their city. She’s not the only one:

Three prominent Democrats in North Dakota donated to the legal defense fund of a man arrested for attacking the office of Republican Senator John Hoeven with an axe.

Video shows a presumably mostly peaceful protester smashing windows and an intercom at Hoeven’s office building in downtown Fargo last December 21, causing an estimated $3,800 worth of damage.

The suspect was identified as 30-year-old Thomas “Tas” Starks.

According to police, one of Starks’ co-workers called him “‘politically open and motivated,’ left-leaning, and ‘very active in protests.’”

Few are likely to be surprised that Starks is a moonbat. The Capitol Riot was an exception proving the rule that virtually all political violence in this country comes from the Left.

Starks’ wife, Laura Starks, organized a Gofundme fundraiser to cover his legal expenses. …

Three prominent North Dakota Democrats have contributed to this defense fund. They are: Ellen Chaffee, the Democrat Party’s nominee for lieutenant governor in 2012, Party Executive Committee Representative and left-wing columnist Ellie Shockley, and Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen.

What, no mention of Kamala Harris? Put your money where your mouth is, Kamala!

Shockley was the first contributor, bestowing $500.

In addition, Shockley evidently had a large hand in promoting the fundraiser. According to the Post Millennial, she promoted the fund several times on social media and has a personal relationship with the Starks family through “unions and activism.”

“Please, please, please” pleaded Shockley, as she exhorted fellow moonbats to give to Starks on her Fakebook page. She doesn’t seem to doubt Starks’s guilt, proclaiming that she believes “in rehabilitation, not retribution.” I doubt this would apply to the rioters at the Capitol.

If Anyone Should Be Impeached for Incitement…

If the Senate finds it worthwhile to “impeach” a former president for inciting violence by explicitly calling for supporters to protest peacefully, why not impeach any number of Democrats from offices they still hold? A much easier case for incitement could be made for any number of them, as Rand Paul demonstrates:

Not only did Kamala Harris raise funds to bail rioters out of jail, she actually said of the Black Lives Matter/Antifa events that hundreds of times were designated as riots,

“They’re not going to stop before election day in November and they’re not going to stop after election day. … They are not going to let up. And they should not.”

This is closer to incitement than anything said by Trump.

Inauguration Day, 2017

As Vlad Tepes notes, it is very important to remember past events as they actually happened in a country that has come to resemble Winston Smith’s Airstrip One.

The catastrophe at the Capitol on January 6 has allowed the liberal establishment to portray its opposition as a violent mob. For the inauguration on Wednesday, Washington will look like a police state. There may be more armed soldiers than spectators. “What a shame,” journalists will lament, “that we have to live like this thanks to conservatives.”

Footage of progressives tearing up DC at the last inauguration will go down the memory hole.

Violent Rhetoric From Prominent Teacher, Journalist

If Democrats take the Senate, leftists will have the whip hand for some time to come. That is a scary thought, considering that their rhetoric has become explicitly violent.

The Left owes its cultural hegemony largely to the influence of teachers and journalists. Here’s a message tweeted by Rodney Robinson, 2019 Teacher of the Year:

“Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.”

McConnell’s fellow Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was blind-sided by his maniacal moonbat neighbor Rene Boucher, who broke six of his ribs. Paul had to have part of his lung removed.

Robinson blamed objections to his call for violence on racism. That magic word will be used to cover all manner of abuse in the bleak future beginning to unfold.

Liberal journalist Kurt Eichenwald has won awards too. His violent rhetoric targets people who have not embraced mask-wearing. Snarls Eichenwald,

“I wish them & their loved ones all the pain & misery they inflicted on this country.”

In another tweet, Eichenwald proclaimed that he wants to “find an antimasker and beat them to death.” He equates failing to wear a mask that may or may not do any good with reckless homicide, and reasons that “it is hard not to contemplate violence against those who don’t care if they kill.”

Simply going to a party is enough to provoke a burst of Eichenwald’s holiday cheer:

“If youre [sic] willing to risk infecting people to attend a New Year’s Eve party, I hope it’s you who gets COVID, suffers, and & dies alone.”

This vindictive and often explicitly violent attitude seems to permeate the Left lately. Their notion of “unity” will not be pleasant.

Leftist Terrorists Attack Gas Lines in Colorado

For months on end, the liberal media establishment and local Democrat authorities not only tolerated but supported politically motivated violence — i.e., terrorism — by leftists affiliated with or inspired by Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Leftists were rewarded with greater control of the federal government, not to mention many $millions in donations from major corporations. Is anyone surprised to see more left-wing terrorism?

Thousands of residents in Aspen, Colorado were left without heat during near-zero degree weather after vandals — possibly green activists from an environmental group — attacked the city’s gas system, authorities said Monday.

The attack on three separate gas lines left 3,500 in the cold.

The Aspen Police Department said the words “Earth first!” were written on one pipe near Aspen.

No worries. The politicized FBI is investigating the matter. After Biden’s handlers put another James Comey type in charge, they will have no problem discovering that the damage was caused by systemic racism.

This terror attack reminded Tony Heller of Real Climate Science why there are so many trees in Colorado:

Gretchen Whitmer Defends Cynthia Johnson

Michigan State Representative Cynthia Johnson (D-Detroit) is even scarier than we knew. When she issued a public call for her supporters “who are soldiers” to come after “Trumpers” and “make them pay,” it appeared obvious that she was siccing Black Lives Matter goons on her critics. But she has a supporter who might do worse than toss a Molotov cocktail through your front window. Michigan Gauleiter Gretchen Whitmer, infamous for the ruthlessness with which she inflicts arbitrary coronavirus decrees, has Johnson’s back.

Johnson’s perceived call for violence resulted in a wrist slap:

Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox accused Johnson of inciting violence. House Speaker Lee Chatfield, R-Levering, and House Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth, R-Clare, subsequently announced Johnson would be stripped of her committee assignments, adding Johnson could face “further disciplinary action as the proper authorities conduct their own investigations.”

Even that was too much for Whitmer:

“I think that removing her from her committees is too far, truly, and I’ve reached out and asked the incoming House leadership to reconsider that,” she said.

The signal has been broadcast loud and clear. In Michigan, Democrat leadership has no problem with pols conducting themselves as if America were some tinpot dictatorship in a remote Third World backwater. If the Governor approves of issuing marching orders to an army of street thugs who have already caused $billions in damage with hundreds of riots in the course of this year, pulling out fingernails might be next.

Johnson said she didn’t mean to threaten Trump supporters, but she also doesn’t regret her words. Instead, Johnson said she’s owed an apology from GOP leaders.

If she doesn’t get one…

Dem MI State Rep Cynthia Johnson: Make Them Pay

Biden’s handlers ought to consider Michigan State Representative Cynthia Johnson for a cabinet position. Not only does she check at least two boxes on the all-important identity politics checklist, she personifies the mentality of today’s belligerently triumphant and viciously intolerant Democratic Party. She threatened supporters of the president during a Facebook live stream video on Tuesday:

“I wish I could be talking to y’all in a private room, because, uh, I just wish I could, but we’re public so,” she told her viewers.

Imagine what she might have said in private.

“So, this is just a warning to you Trumpers,” the Democrat threatened: “Be careful, walk lightly, we ain’t playing with you. Enough of the shenanigans. Enough is enough.”

Yes ma’am. We will bow our heads meekly, vote Democrat, and swallow all of the lies the liberal media establishment feeds us from now on.

Too late; enraged by unfriendly phone calls of the sort politicians sometimes receive from the public, Johnson has already given marching orders:

“And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it,” she directed. “Do it right, be in order, make them pay.”

Given the prevalence of Black Lives Matter/Antifa political violence, this is not an idle threat. Essentially, she is calling on her supporters to burn down the houses and/or businesses of her critics. That’s how things are done in countries like this is on the verge of becoming.

People like this have been taking hold of the reins of power via the Democratic Party:

Leftist Thugs Assault Million MAGA March

Turnout was huge for the Million MAGA March in Washington.

The Blaze reports that the mood was festive, until the liberal establishment’s shock troops descended on the scene to silence opposition:

For days, anarchist and anti-fascist groups planned counterprotests to “overwhelm” Trump supporters at the Million MAGA March on Saturday. A group of counterprotesters were carrying signs that said, “Punch MAGA in the face.” Some counterprotesters became violent, and footage from the Million MAGA March shows several Trump supporters being attacked. One Trump supporter was brutally knocked out.

This is what you voted for if you voted for Joe Biden, whose party openly embraces Black Lives Matter thugs and covers for their Antifa allies:

Soon afterward, a BLM type ran up from behind and punched her in the head.

What do you expect in a city so tightly controlled by Democrats that it names a two-block-long pedestrian section of 16th Street right by the White House “Black Lives Matter Plaza” in honor of Marxist terrorists?

Worse yet was this:

Video from field reporter Jorge Ventura shows a mob of people attacking a man, landing several sucker punches. Then one attacker winds up and punches him in the head from behind, knocking him unconscious. As the man lay motionless on the ground, several counterprotesters stepped on his body. The man’s face was covered in blood.

From the video:

Kamala Harris, who will be the de facto president if Democrats prevail, calls the thugs who sucker punched and stomped on the head of this gentleman the “heroes of our time.” She has called for them to continue to riot regardless of who wins the election, which they will certainly do.

Since they have no morality other than political correctness and no concept of shame, progressive brownshirts target anyone they suspect of opposing them. From Breitbart:

Antifa and BLM wasted no time in accosting women, children, families, and the elderly as they walked down Washington, DC, streets after the Million MAGA March on Saturday.

They knew that in DC they could count on the support of local authorities:

DC Metropolitan Police blocked off BLM Plaza so Million MAGA March attendees could not go through. Trump supporters had to walk through a gauntlet of BLM, Antifa, and black bloc assailants in order to leave the area.

According to the narrative, this is all about race. Actually, it isn’t:

A black mother with her young children wearing a Blue Lives matter hat and a Trump jacket frantically told police officers she wanted to press charges against her assailants. The assailants cornered her and asked her why she had her children there. She was pushing a child in a stroller and shielding her pre-teen daughter when she was attacked, reported Breitbart News.

One good thing has come of 2020. There is no more “nuance” for the bad guys to hide behind. The Left is not merely wrong, but malevolent. This goes for its primary party, the Democrats. No informed person can help but be aware of this, despite the Left’s control of the media.

How to Deal With Riots if Trump Wins

As mentioned earlier, if election integrity prevails, and it turns out that Trump wins the election, Democrats will respond with massive rioting. The implicit threat of rioting looms over the investigation of their massive election fraud. This form of intimidation has been seen before in degenerating republics as they succumb to tyranny.

What if we don’t succumb? What if Trump wins, and then we choose not to allow liberals to reduce every major city to Portland?

The wise Thomas Sowell explains in five words how to stop leftist violence if Trump is reelected: “overwhelming force on the scene.” But because the media will continue to side with the rioters, this will require serious resolve:

As Sowell explains, two major causes of rioting are justification of the rioting and holding back the police. Persuading liberals to show the common decency not to egg on rioters won’t be easy. Responsibly deploying the police will require overruling local authorities in areas controlled by Democrats — i.e., all major cities.

Thugs Shut Down USA Freedom Rally in Beverly Hills

No wonder the moonbats are so nervous. When it comes to the liberal elite, Beverly Hills is the belly of the beast. If a Trump rally as big as yesterday’s USA Freedom Rally could happen there, one might break out anywhere:

Obviously, such displays of support for the president cannot be permitted. Democrats deployed their shock troops:

[B]lack-clad counterprotesters dressed in tactical gear marched from Roxbury Park towards the USA Freedom Rally.

Here’s what happens when courageous Democrat warriors manage to isolate a patriot:

Video shows a throng of demonstrators dressed in all-black swarm a man holding an American flag. Then a person seems to pepper-spray the man with the flag; he retaliated by swinging his flag pole at them. As more members of the mob advance towards him, he takes more swings to keep the distance between them.

A man wearing a black helmet with the acronym “ACAB,” which stands for “All Cops Are Bastards,” attempts to wrestle the American flag from the Trump supporter. Then several other black-clad members jump in and pummel the man from all sides. One person is seen hitting the Trump supporter in the back of the head with a pole.

Thank you Antifa, for demonstrating graphically what our future will look like under leftist rule.

The man gets away for a second and then is clobbered again by the mob. They punch, kick, and smash him with objects as he is defenseless on the ground.

Good thing for Democrats that they control the media, or this would make for some embarrassing press.

Since the leftists control not only the media but also local authorities in places like Los Angeles, these brownshirt tactics are marvelously effective:

An unlawful assembly was declared shortly before 2:40 p.m.

As usual in cases of Antifa violence, there were no arrests.

That’s how you shut down a freedom rally. Pat yourself on the backs, progressives. Nazis wouldn’t have done a better job.

The dichotomy between the good guys and the bad guys has never been more obvious. It isn’t Republicans and Democrats on the ballot Tuesday. It is good and evil.
