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

Published

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.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
