Portland Police Reveal Downtown Businesses Sustained Staggering $23M In Damages After Weeks Of Protest

Published

on

Police in Portland, Oregon recently announced that businesses in the city have endured millions of dollars worth of damage after weeks of violent protests, looting, and rioting that can be attributed to the Black Lives Matter individuals supposedly out and about seeking the annihilation of racism and police brutality.

Strange means of trying to bring social change, right?

According to officials, the area sustained $23 million in damages so far. The rioting and protests have been going down for 41 straight nights. Deputy Police Chief Chris Davis said that the vast majority of the damage was done by an “agitator corps.”

“We’re six weeks into this,” Davis said during a virtual news briefing. “A walk through downtown today will expose you to a scene of boarded-up windows, extensive damage to public property, and really an unfortunate scene in our city center.”

“Quite frankly, this is not sustainable,” he said. “There’s a very big difference between protests and the kind of mayhem that we’ve seen every night. … The Black Lives Matter movement is not violent. The story that we’re going to talk about today is about a small group of agitators that is attempting to hijack that message and use it as a cover for criminal activity.”

Journalist Andy Ngo posted a tweet on the issue that said, “It was stated today by Portland Police that downtown businesses have suffered an estimated $23m in damages as a result of the six weeks of violent protests by antifa and BLM.”

The president of the Portland police union stated on Wednesday that his confidence in city officials bringing the chaos to an end is pretty low.

“Our officers have endured weeks of rocks, bricks, bottles, mortars, and other objects hurled at them with hate. Enough. The people who put on a badge and uniform every day are human beings,” union president Daryl Turner told the media.

Leadership in major cities is primarily made up of Democrats, which is pretty much all you need to know as far as an explanation for allowing this nonsense to continue. There’s a lot the left can benefit from concerning the allowance of anarchy and chaos like this in major cities.

Some of those benefits will show up in the form of votes for Joe Biden come November. Others will present themselves in the justification of the usurping of power from the citizenry under the guise of safety and justice in the wake of the rioting.

It’s sad, but that’s how liberals think. No crisis goes to waste.

Save conservative media!

Rashida Tlaib Seals Victory In Michigan Democratic House Primary

Published

on

Well, it’s looking likely everyone’s favorite “Squad” of anti-Semitic starlets in the House will be reunited for another go at Congress as Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Michigan Democratic House primary race. Tlaib is gunning for a second term representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She defeated Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: Their election was defined by the issues of race and her resource monopoly compared to Jones. Tlaib’s victory was a surprise given the record number of black Detroit voters who mailed in their ballots to officials ahead of the Aug. 4 primary. Tlaib and Jones first met in the 2018 special election to replace the late Rep. John Conyers. Conyers had resigned over sexual misconduct accusations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Jones won the four-way special election before Tlaib clinched victory by fewer than 1,000 votes five weeks later. The second contest was against a more crowded six-way field for the longer stint in Washington. All four of their former general election rivals backed Jones, a 15-year councilor. Polling was sparse throughout the race, but a Target-Insyght poll late last month had Tlaib in front, 53% to 24% . The Palestinian-American, who along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the first two Muslim women to win seats in Congress, was leading in the cash stakes. She raised $2.9 million, in contrast to Jones’ $140,000 in July. Jones was disadvantaged after contracting COVID-19 as well. If there’s two people this country could stand to see less of, it’s Tlaib and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, despite all of their anti-Semitic remarks poor decision making, they will probably win second terms. Try not to hurt yourself jumping with joy.

Biden Delivers Bizarre Interview; Walks Back Claims On Cognitive Tests, Rambles On About ‘Cocaine’

Published

on

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of speculation that Joe Biden’s mental health is in serious decline. He’s lost his train of thought in the middle of a sentence on numerous occasions, needed to have questions repeated, rambled incoherently, forgotten parts of the Declaration of Independence, and much more. Do we really want a guy like that in the White House? Of course not. But the left is moving full steam ahead with him as their candidate anyway. Biden recently gave a very strange interview in which he walked back previous claims of taking cognitive tests and rambled on about cocaine. You just have to to see this for yourself. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “Have you taken a cognitive test?” CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked. “No, I haven’t taken a test,” Biden shot back. “Why the hell would I take a test? Come on man, that’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” “What do you say to President Trump, who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?” the host pressed as Biden laughed. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden responded. “Did you watch that, look, come on man, I, I, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and debates. There gonna be plenty of time, and by the way, as I joke with’em, you know, I, I shouldn’t say it. I’m going to say something, I…
