DOJ Identifies NYC, Portland, Seattle as Violent Anarchist Jurisdictions in Move to Revoke Federal Funding

The Department of Justice on Monday identified three cities—New York City, Portland, and Seattle—as jurisdictions that have permitted “violence and destruction of property,” thereby meeting President Trump’s criteria for withholding federal funding to those areas.

Earlier this month, the president issued a memorandum asking the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Secretary of Homeland Security, and Attorney General Barr to list the areas that “have permitted violence and the destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract these criminal activities.”

Trump called the cities “anarchist jurisdictions” and asked the OMB to issue guidance to the heads of executive departments and agencies “restricting eligibility” and “disfavoring” them from federal funding.

“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones. To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government’s promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities,” Trump wrote.

The DOJ noted that all three cities rejected federal law enforcement support amid skyrocketing increases in crime.

In July and August of 2020, shootings in New York City increased 177 percent and 166 percent from last year, according to the DOJ statement.

While the city faced increased unrest, gun violence, and property damage, the New York City Council cut $1 billion from NYPD’s FY21 budget.
The budget resulted in the cancellation of the new police recruiting class, cuts to overtime spending, and the transfer of certain police functions, including school safety, out of the NYPD.

Meanwhile, the Manhattan and Brooklyn District Attorneys have declined to prosecute charges of disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly arising from the protests, and the District Attorneys in Queens and the Bronx have declined to prosecute other protest-related charges.

The DOJ noted that both Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo forcefully rejected Trump’s offer of federal law enforcement support.

Shootings in Portland, Oregon, meanwhile, increased by more than 140% in June and July 2020 compared to the same period last year, amid more than “100 consecutive nights of protests marred by vandalism, chaos, and even killing,” according to the DOJ’s statement.

Those bent on violence regularly started fires, threw projectiles at law enforcement officers, and destroyed property. Numerous law enforcement officers, among others, suffered injury.

Shootings increased by more than 140% in June and July 2020 compared to the same period last year.
In the midst of this violence, the Portland City Council cut $15 million from the police bureau, eliminating 84 positions. Crucially, the cuts included the Gun Violence Reduction Team, which investigates shootings, and several positions from the police team that responds to emergency incidents.

Portland Mayor Wheeler also rejected Trump’s offer of federal law enforcement to stop the violent rioting.

The DOJ statement goes on to excoriate Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan for allowing “anarchists and activists to seize six square blocks of the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, naming their new enclave the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) and then the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” (CHOP)” for nearly a month starting in June.

Law enforcement and fire fighters were precluded from entering the territory. The Seattle Police Department was ordered to abandon their precinct within the CHOP.

Person-related crime in the CHOP increased 525% from the same period of time in the same area the year before, including by Mayor Durkan’s own count “two additional homicides, 6 additional robberies, and 16 additional aggravated assaults (to include 2 additional non-fatal shootings).”

The CHOP was allowed to stand for nearly a month, during which time two teenagers were shot and killed in the zone.

Like Portland and NYC, the Seattle City Council, Mayor Durkan, and Washington Governor Jay Inslee also expressly rejected federal law enforcement support within the city of Seattle, the DOJ statement notes.

The attorney general said in a statement that state and local leaders in these cities have endangered citizens, including protestors, by their dereliction.

“When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.”

The DOJ said that it is continuing to evaluate other cities using the criteria set out in the president’s memorandum, therefore the list will be updated periodically.

Left-Wing Agitator Arrested for Starting Fire in Washington, Suspected of Starting Two Other Wildfires

A Washington man with a history of left-wing agitation was arrested Wednesday evening after he allegedly started a fire in the brush along a highway near Tacoma.

Jeffrey Acord, 36, was charged for reckless burning in the second degree. He is now reportedly also a suspect in two other Washington wildfires.

Acord appears to be a man of the left, according to his Facebook page.

#Disobey.#Resist.#Fight.#Ops.

Posted by Jeff Demologik Acord on Friday, July 10, 2020

 

Acord called 911 to report the fire he apparently started himself, and then livestreamed what ensued to his Facebook page.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Ryan Burke announced his arrest later on Twitter:

Accord had drawn attention to himself earlier in the day by walking around the highway holding a lighter, according to Q13Fox.

State patrol said they had spoken with him earlier on Wednesday morning when a woman called to report a man walking on the highway in Sumner holding a lighter.

The Sumner Grade Fire in Sumner and Bonney Lake has burned more than 800 acres and was 20 percent contained as of Thursday morning.

When an officer questioned Acord, he claimed that he was looking for his $1,000 recording equipment because the camera case had supposedly fallen out of his backpack while he was biking the previous day.

“I’ve been out here all day searching for my camera,” Acord told police. “I’m trying to cover the area thoroughly.”

During his Facebook Live broadcast, Acord did an Oscar-worthy job sounding alarmed by his fire.

 

The fire was contained to the interstate and extinguished by the local fire department, although Puyallup Police were forced to close the northbound ramp.

“There’s nothing you can connect to me to this at all,” Acord stated before the video cut out. “I was literally calling this in.”

Acord was detained in the Puyallup City Jail with bail set at $1,000 and then transferred to the Pierce County Jail where he was booked under a separate burglary charge.

The suspected antifa militant has a history of anti-police protesting and encounters with law enforcement, court records show. According to his Facebook, Acord also attended a Black Lives Matter march in Seattle on June 5 of this year.

Previously in 2014, Acord was caught with a cache of weapons and arrested during the Ferguson Decision Protest. Officers found the man carrying a 7-inch knife in his backpack, a box of ammunition, an assault rifle, a shotgun, and a box full of illegal fireworks in his car, according to a KOMO news report. When officers contacted Acord, he admitted to carrying a loaded gun without a permit. His bail was set for $10,000. The following charges were levelled against him.

In the 2014 incident, officers reportedly found Acord carrying a 7-inch knife in his backpack, a box of ammunition, an assault rifle, a shotgun, and a box full of large fireworks in his car.

Acord attempted to justify the 2014 case as “a misunderstanding” to arresting officers during Wednesday’s arrest.

According to Protester Privilege, sources say Acord is now a suspect in two other wildfires in Washington, including the Bonney Lake fire that has burned more than 800 acres.

The Oregonian reported on Wednesday that a group of wildfires in Lincoln County may have been caused by human activity, as opposed to lightning or other natural ignition sources. These massive wildfires have have destroyed more than 2,400 acres.

At least five other individuals have been arrested for starting fires in Washington, Oregon, and California in recent days, although a connection to left-wing domestic terrorism has not yet been established.

Washington State Representative Jim Walsh released a statement on the suspicious wildfires:

“I am getting a lot of reports from residents of Washington State that the current wave of wild fires in Washington and Oregon may be caused or at least made worse by politically motivated arsonists,” he said. “How could their motives be political? To set fire to blame them on climate change?”

We have pretty good evidence that several of the major fires burning recently in Washington were human made but not arson. However, a larger number of the fires burning in Oregon seem to have suspicious origins and a growing number of people in Washington are reporting suspicious behavior on the part of strangers and visitors which raises concerns.

Residents of Bonney Lake told Kiro 7 news that they found broken glass with newspaper in the brush. Residents of Buckley Washington have reported similar claims in neighborhood social media groups.

According to Law Enforcement Today, federal law enforcement sources say that some of the people who started the fires may be connected, and more attacks could be on the way.

“We are reacting to a coordinated series of attempts to start fires anywhere and everywhere in Oregon. Public and Private lands, incorporated and unincorporated areas.

By all indications so far in the preliminary stages of these investigations there is a coordinated effort on the part of these individuals to start fires in areas that are the least protected and most vulnerable then slowing working their way into more populated areas and neighborhoods.

Please take this information as an advisory for you own account and welfare and please act in good faith with due diligence to plan accordingly for your own safety and the well being of your community.”

Staffer for Top Oregon State lawmaker Arrested With 58 Other Agitators During Violent Portland riot

Portland Police arrested a Democrat staffer for the top Democrat in Oregon’s House of Representatives this weekend after she interfered  with a police officer during a particularly violent riot.

She was reportedly released the same day on her own recognizance.

“Kristina Narayan was arrested for interfering with a police officer after the event became a riot and the crowd was given multiple orders to disperse, which she did not do,” a police spokesperson told Fox News.

Narayan, who is legislative director for House Speaker Tina Kotek, was arrested along with 58 other agitators during a riot in which fire bombs, mortars, rocks, and other items were thrown at law enforcement. The violence began at about 9:00 p.m. near the East Portland Community Policing Center Saturday night, and continued into Sunday morning, according to the Portland Police Bureau report.

Narayan, 29, has worked for Kotek since September 2016, according to her LinkedIn profile.

The East Precinct police station, a repeated target of violent antifa/BLM arsonists and vandals, is reportedly located near occupied townhomes and is across the street from a school and a community event center.

Many in the antifa mob were “dressed in protective gear including helmets, gas masks, body armor, and all black clothing” Saturday night, tipping off the cops that their intent (for the 100th+ night in a row) “was not peaceful protest.”

Portland Police Rapid Response Team and Oregon State Police were deployed to respond to the threat.

Officers positioned themselves to block the agitators from reaching the East Precinct and announced over a loudspeaker that the march would “not be allowed to proceed that direction.”

At about 9:15 p.m, as the crowd approached officers, individuals began throwing multiple fire bombs at officers. One of them caught a community member on fire. Officers later located the injured person and Portland Fire and Rescue medics offered treatment. The injured person was later taken to a hospital by private vehicle.

This criminal activity presented an extreme danger to life safety for all community members, and prompted a declaration of a riot. The crowd was advised over loudspeaker that it was a riot and they were to leave the area to the east immediately. They were warned that failure to adhere to this order may subject them to arrest, citation, or crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons.

Individuals within the crowd began throwing illegal fireworks/mortars at officers. Others were seen throwing rocks. At least one had a “wrist-rocket” type of slingshot launching unknown objects. In order to defend themselves from these assaults, officers used crowd control munitions, including tear gas. Officers made numerous targeted arrests.

For the next four hours, the crowd appeared to meander through the Mill Park community, attempting to get to get around the police blockade and reach East Precinct. Officers moved ahead of the rioters to prevent them access. Rioters lit fires in the streets, including dumpsters, garbage cans, and wooden pallets. Officers moved in to push the crowd back in order to extinguish the fires.

During numerous confrontations with officers, individuals launched attacks on law enforcement, including throwing objects. A sergeant was directly struck by a commercial grade firework, which burned through his glove and injured his hand (photos). Several officers and troopers were struck by rocks in the head, arms, shoulders, and feet. Only their protective gear prevented serious injury. An Oregon State Police vehicle was damaged by rocks, including broken windows and dents (photos). An unexploded mortar was recovered by police (photo).

Of the people who were arrested, at least two were wearing body armor, one had a dagger, and another had a knife.

Because Portland police precincts had to pull officers out of patrol to assist with the riot, their ability to respond to calls were severely limited. “At about 2:00 a.m., there were almost 150 calls for service holding in the City of Portland,” the police report stated.

Narayan’s boss, Rep. Kotek, 53, wrote a scathing letter to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler back in July, chastising him for allowing the Portland Police to interfere with “peaceful protests.”

“It was an unnecessary escalation by the PPB against people exercising their freedom of assembly and freedom of speech,” Kotek after the police had responded to a riot.

“It showed an utter inability to exercise restraint,” she scolded.

Earlier this month, Kotek advocated for the decriminalization of interfering with a peace officer.

Portland’s 100% Antifa Murder Suspect Shot Dead By U.S. Marshals in Washington

The left-wing agitator who shot a Trump supporter in Portland last weekend, was shot and killed during a shootout with U.S. Marshals in Washington, Thursday evening, according to the Olympian.

Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, had reportedly crossed state lines into Washington and the federal fugitive task force was able to track him to Lacey, Washington, a town outside of Olympia.

The Pierce County sheriff’s fugitive apprehension team, working in tandem with the U.S. Marshals team, was apparently in the area searching for Reinoehl when they saw him come out of an apartment armed with a weapon. Witnesses at the scene said he was armed with an “assault rifle.”

“The suspect came out to the car,” said Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer. “They attempted to put him into custody and shots were fired.”

Thurston County sheriff’s Lt. Ray Brady confirmed that four officers fired their weapons on the suspect.

The man was inside a vehicle at the apartment complex when the shootout began.

The suspect ran from the car. Officers said he pulled out a gun and the officers fired, according to Brady.

Reinoehl was pronounced dead at the scene.

The four officers were from the Department of Corrections, Pierce County Sheriff’s Department and Lakewood Police Department, the Olympian reported.

 

The antifa gunman had been arrested twice in recent months on multiple charges, including gun charges.

Reinoehl posted on Instagram, in June: “Every revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight. There are many of us protesters that are just protesting without a clue of where that will lead. That’s just the beginning that’s where the fight starts. If that’s as far and you can take it thank you for your participation but please stand aside and support the ones that are willing to fight. I am 100% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters! Even if some of them are too ignorant to realize what antifa truly stands for.”

Earlier Thursday, VICE magazine published a sympathetic interview with Reinoehl alleging that he had acted in self-defense when he shot Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson in downtown Portland.

According to the Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo, the “fluff piece” was written by an antifa supporter.

Here is Vice’s nauseating propaganda piece on the cold-blooded murderer:

Chandler Pappas, a friend of Danielson, joined Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Thursday night to talk about what really happened.

Pappas said that he and his friend had done nothing to provoke the violence.

“They came up behind us, they shot my friend and killed him,” he stoically explained. Pappas said he heard some people were yelling and when they turned around, Reinoehl opened fire on his friend.

They were shouting, “we’ve got a couple right here, we’ve got a couple right here! Pull it out, pull it out!” he said.

“I didn’t even have time to register that someone was pointing a gun at us before the shots went off,” Pappas added. He said his friend had deployed bear mace, but Reinoehl shot through it.

Pappas said that anything that is pro-America or pro-patriot makes one a target of the antifa militants.

Carlson pointed out that his deceased friend has been falsely denounced as a “white supremacist” by the left, and asked him what he was really like.

“Anyone who knew Jay, knew him by his smile,” Pappas said. “He was the happiest, most compassionate, first to buy you a drink kind of guy that you would ever meet. He got along with everybody.”

Antifa Rioter Arrested and Released Without Bail in June Allegedly Murdered Couple One Week Later

A Portland man who was arrested at an antifa-infested Black Lives Matter riot in June and quickly released without bail, went on to allegedly murder two people just one week later, KOIN reported.

Antifa rioter Phillip Lawrence Nelson is accused of fatally stabbing Cassy Leaton, 22, and Najaf “Nate” Hobbs, 39, on June 16 in Northeast Portland.

Nelson, 39, faces two murder charges and is being held without bail.

On the 12th day of the violent antifa riots in downtown Portland, and just days before the murder, Nelson was arrested for interfering with a peace officer. He was released without bail and his criminal charge wasn’t pursued by Portland’s far-left district attorney Mike Schmidt.

 

According to court records, Nelson told authorities in June that he had been homeless for the two months before the murder arrest. He had reportedly been scamming the couple into paying him rent for their apartment while he was squatting in the building. He became violently enraged and stabbed them both to death after they discovered the scheme and changed their locks.

The murder may have stemmed from an ongoing dispute between the victims and the suspect. Leaton and Hobbs’ roommate told police that they were originally renting the unit in a fourplex from Nelson, who claimed to be the owner of the building, according to court records. When the three roommates found out Nelson was actually just squatting there, they changed the locks to their unit, angering Nelson, records state.

On the afternoon they were murdered, surveillance video captured Hobbs and Leaton going into the basement of the building, where the water control is located, according to court records. The pair came back upstairs, but then went back just a minute later. Shortly after that, surveillance video captured Leaton running out of the basement, stumbling and shouting for help before falling down. Bystanders rushed to her aid, but she did not survive.

Both Leaton and Hobbs had been stabbed numerous times, according to the medical examiner. A police officer said he found Hobbs’ body on the stairs, with a trail of blood leading to the basement. The officer also allegedly found a long-bladed knife and “significant amount of blood” inside the basement.

Detectives were able to track Nelson down on June 18 and arrested him for the murders.

This is the second known antifa-related murder that was made possible by Portland’s the weak and corrupt district attorney.

An antifa agitator allegedly shot a Trump supporter in Portland over the weekend after having been arrested and set free twice in recent months for multiple charges that included the illegal possession of a handgun.

Portland’s ‘100% Antifa’ Killer Was Previously Arrested Twice for Illegal Possession of Loaded Firearm

The left-wing agitator who allegedly shot a Trump supporter in Portland over the weekend, is a proud member of antifa who has been arrested and set free twice in recent months for charges that included the illegal possession of a handgun.

“I am 100% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters!” the alleged shooter, Michael Forest Reinoehl, posted on social media back in June.

According to the Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo, Reinoehl was arrested during the early morning hours of July 5 outside the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse in Portland and was cited for “possessing a loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest, and interfering with police,” but was promptly let go by Portland authorities.

He was photographed at the time fighting cops while on the ground. A gun laid on the ground next to him. He was cited, released and spent no time in the county jail. Like for the majority of those arrested at riots, local prosecutors did not pursue the charges.

The charges were dropped on July 30 with a “no complaint,” according to court records.

Reinoehl also reportedly has a warrant for his arrest on multiple charges stemming from an unrelated incident in Eastern Oregon on June 8 in which he was stopped for driving while in possession of drugs. He was charged with driving under the influence, recklessly endangering another, and driving while suspended and uninsured.

Police in Baker County also found him in possession of a loaded Glock pistol, for which he didn’t have a concealed handgun license during that incident, according to the New York Post. 

It’s unclear why prosecutors would have let Reinoehl walk in July if he’d had a warrant out for his arrest stemming from the June incident, but the decision to allow the dangerous criminal to walk free allowed him to allegedly fatally shoot pro-Trump, pro-police conservative Aaron “Jay” Danielson Saturday night in downtown Portland.

Reinoehl, 48, is reportedly being investigated by Portland police for the homicide, although he has not been formally named or charged fro that crime.

Danielson had earlier participated in a pro-Trump caravan that had driven through the city and clashed with violent rioters.

Danielson, the homicide victim, was shot in the chest in downtown Portland just before 9 p.m. by a man believed to be Reinoehl, who fled the scene on foot. Video recorded of the shooting shows Danielson lying motionless on the ground immediately after two shots are fired. He wore a blue pro-police patch on his shorts at the time of his death. He was a participant in the “Trump 2020” car caravan that drove in and around Portland and was an associate of Portland-area conservative group, Patriot Prayer.

Antifa rioters hurled rocks, eggs and other projectiles and caravan drivers. The pro-Trump drivers and passengers retaliated by shooting them with paintballs and spraying agitators blocking road with pepper spray.

Reinoehl, who has a “black power” fist tattooed on his neck, has “an extensive social media history that shows he identifies as Antifa and has been at many of the riots in Portland,” the Post Millennial reported.

On Instagram, Reinoehl posted in June: “Every revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight. There are many of us protesters that are just protesting without a clue of where that will lead. That’s just the beginning that’s where the fight starts. If that’s as far and you can take it thank you for your participation but please stand aside and support the ones that are willing to fight. I am 100% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters! Even if some of them are too ignorant to realize what antifa truly stands for.”

He continued: “We are currently living through a crucial point in Humanities evolution. We truly have an opportunity right now to fix everything. But it will be a fight like no other! It will be a war and like all wars there will be casualties.”

Reinoehl seemed to be disgruntled, anti-American misfit while serving in the Army, a post regarding his military experience suggests. He proudly shared with followers his preference for fighting fellow Americans over foreign enemy combatants.

“I was in the army and hated it. I did not feel like fighting for them would ever be a good cause. Today’s protesters and antifa are my brothers in arms. This is a Cause to fight for This truly is fighting for my country!” the antifa radical wrote.

“Wow — Portland PD and Antifa-loving District Attorney let this psycho loose only last month after he brought a gun to a riot?” First Amendment lawyer Harmeet K. Dhillon tweeted on Monday. “@tedwheeler— this death is on your hands. You are the police commissioner and YOU let this happen.”

Terrorism Expert: Antifa Developed From Communist Terrorist Movements Like Weather Underground

A counterterrorism expert testified at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on Tuesday that antifa developed from communist domestic terrorist groups like the Weather Underground and has the goal of overthrowing the United States Constitution.

In his testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Kyle Shideler, Director and Senior Analyst for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism for the Center for Security Policy, said that antifa is an anarcho-communist movement that uses physical violence and intimidation to keep American citizens from engaging in the political process.

“While they do this under the cover of antifascism, the reality is that antifa defines the entire American political system, regardless of party affiliation, as fascism,” Shideler explained during the hearing entitled “The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble: Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence.”

Also testifying at the hearing were Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), U.S. Attorney Northern District of Texas Erin Nealy Cox, Deputy Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli, independent journalist Andrew Ngo, Brennan Center for Law and Justice Fellow Michael German, George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, and Ms. Nkenge Harmon Johnson, President and CEO Portland Urban League.

“Antifa developed out of the communist urban guerilla and terrorist movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s, such as the Weather Underground and Germany’s Red Army Faction,” Shideler declared.

The terror expert explained that, as such, the tactics used by antifa had been developing for “over half a century of radical left-wing organizing and political violence.”

Shideler noted that while some analysts suggest that antifa doesn’t exist in any meaningful sense, “the reality is that antifa demonstrates an elaborate but non-hierarchical structure.”

“Antifa relies heavily on support organizations such as the Democratic Socialists of America, the International Workers of the World, Refuse Fascism, and the National Lawyers Guild and in coordination with other protest organizations,” he said. “It is not uncommon for antifa to require outside groups to sign what are essentially memorandums of understanding to ensure that allies agree not to interfere with criminal activity in exchange for protection.”

Shideler added that terrorism is a “low-cost form of warfare,” and pointed out that 9/11 cost less than half a million dollars.

“Claiming that antifa is too disorganized to understand should not be an acceptable excuse for law enforcement—federal, state, or local—to tolerate antifa’s private street war to overthrow the constitution,” Shideler argued.

“Like their predecessors in the Weather Underground and Red Army Faction, antifa will continue to escalate its behavior unless it is checked. There will be more attacks, and rioting techniques will continue to grow in capability and in sophistication, their cadres will grow, and there will be more autonomous zones for increased periods of time, and more Americans of all political persuasions will be terrorized,” he concluded.

Shideler’s testimony echoes what a former Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI has been saying in media interviews about antifa and the terror organization’s apologists in the Democrat party.

Terry Turchie, the driving force behind the capture of two notorious domestic terrorists— Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski and Olympic Park bomber Eric Robert Rudolph—also suggested that today’s antifa radicals sprung from the Weather Underground terrorists of the 1970s.

Turchie explained on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle in June that the Weather Underground domestic terrorist group (led by Bill Ayers, a former comrade of Barack Obama) was “responsible for over 2,000 bombings and attacks on government institutions [and] businesses in the United States,” and had the goal of fomenting a communist revolution.

Continually on the run from the FBI, the Weather Underground movement eventually petered out,” Turchie noted, but not before they released a manifesto that lived on.

“In 1974, they authored a document called Prairie Fire and they outlined their strategy and they outlined the way they could get to that strategy and actually bring down the U.S. government,” Turchie explained.

The document was authored by Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground.

The only path to the final defeat of imperialism and the building of socialism is revolutionary war. Revolution is the most powerful resource of the people. To wait, to not prepare people for the fight, is to seriously mislead about what kind of fierce struggle lies ahead.

Revolutionary war will be complicated and protracted. It includes mass struggle and clandestine struggle, peaceful and violent, political and economic, cultural and military, where all forms are developed in harmony with the armed struggle.
Without mass struggle there can be no revolution.

Without armed struggle there can be no victory. It will not be immediate, for the enemy is entrenched and intractable. It will require lengthy, deliberate political and armed…

“What was their strategy? Their strategy was resistance,” Turchie said, going on to compare them to today’s Democrats. “Not too long, maybe five minutes after President Trump won the election in 2016, Democrat Party leaders came out and said we’re going to resist. We’re going to embark upon a strategy of resistance of the President.”

Turchie noted that the document contained six strategies that the Weather Underground felt would help overthrow of the United States government, including fomenting racial hostility through the false allegations of systemic racism and police racism. The Weather Underground, like antifa, also sought to “attack and dethrone God.”

The former G-man said that the radical left was making the same accusations about systemic racism and police brutality in the 70s as they are now.

“Police racism then and police racism now is a phony issue,” Turchie said. “It has always been a phony issue. It’s the issue that Communist societies use to literally tear apart America and be divisive.” He pointed out that the Black panther Party in Oakland was demanding that the police leave black neighborhoods and let them police themselves.

Turchie went on to assert that “all of this has been adopted into the 2016 party platform in almost the same language you have on the screen.”

It should be noted that during the hearing on Tuesday, Democrats repeatedly brought up and denounced white supremacist groups, but refused to condemn antifa.

Rep. Jordan Opens AG Barr Hearing with Brutal Video Highlighting Antifa Violence, Looting and Rioting

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr Tuesday morning, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, went over the heads of the corporate media to show a brutal video highlighting the violence and mayhem of the Black Lives Matter and antifa mobs.

Rep. Jordan opened his remarks by skillfully running through all of the evidence that proves the Obama administration spied on the opposition party and President  Trump during and after the 2016 election.

Jordan then played the nearly eight minute video, which starts out with a montage of media and Democrat politicians describing the riots as “peaceful protests.”

The video goes on to expose what Democrats and the media don’t want the American people to see—the horrific violence on streets across the nation being perpetrated by their domestic terrorist allies.

DHS Agent: Portland Rioters ‘Mentally Ill,’ ‘Drug Abusers,’ ‘Catatonic With Hate’

The deranged antifa mob that has rioted in Portland, Oregon for 60 consecutive days is full of “mentally ill, frothing-at-the-mouth individuals” who seem “almost catatonic with hate,” according to a DHS agent who shared his impressions of the situation anonymously to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

Last week, federal agents were deployed to Portland in a mission called Operation Diligent Valor to protect downtown’s Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse.

The DHS agent called the situation “surreal,” and hypothesized that the violent agitators have projected their hatred of the president onto the federal courthouse.

You get large, nonviolent demonstrations where people march, they chant, they give speeches, then shortly after are replaced with a smaller crowd, though still large, who immediately start trying to break into and destroy the federal courthouse.

They have transposed their hatred for the president and for law enforcement onto the physical structure of the federal courthouse, and the uniformed personnel whose job is to protect that courthouse.

They throw homemade Molotov cocktails, try to set the walls on fire, try to cut and pry through the plywood covering the glass walls, all the while screaming vitriol until their voices are cracked and hoarse. When DHS personnel are visible, they throw frozen water bottles at them, canned goods, paint and gasoline.

They try to shine high powered lasers into our eyes, which can cause permanent damage.

The agent pointed out the pointless absurdity of agitators objecting to the presence of DHS personnel protecting the building.

“They chant and spray paint ‘feds go home’ as one of their slogans, and that could be easily achieved,” he explained. “If they could prove they wouldn’t destroy the courthouse, DHS personnel would go home. It is that simple.”

He went on to contrast the behavior of the federal law enforcement officers with the hostile hatred of the demented antifa mob.

The law enforcement officers involved are some of the nicest, friendliest people I have ever worked with. From several different agencies, they have come from around the country. Everyone is kind, generous, sharing food, giving each other rides home, and offering to host or show around each other in their home towns in the future. West Virginia, Idaho, Georgia, everyone is supportive, walks around with a smile and a pat on the back.

Once they step out the doors of the courthouse, though, they are met with a hostile hatred from fellow citizens I consider unmatched in my life. I have seen mentally ill, frothing-at-the-mouth individuals screaming at people in front of liquor stores or Walmart parking lots, but that is one single, unhinged individual. Multiply that by 1,000 people, standing 10-20 yards in front of you, who also have rocks and other hidden weapons.

The DHS officer went on to describe the “surreal” hatred of the “mentally ill” agitators, who are not above hurling racist invective at black agents.

As the night goes on, the rioters become so hateful it is surreal. Their voices hoarse, their sentences jumbled, they seem almost catatonic with hate. The unrest seems to draw the mentally ill and drug abusers. Some seem to be both. The officers stand calmly, listening to it, taking it, only making a move if the rioters try to destroy the property or enter the area they have been told repeatedly not to enter. They [the agents] don’t even respond to thrown projectiles, merely calmly dodging them. Some of the things screamed at us, ad nauseum:

“Go home! You’re Nazis, racists, the Gestapo! Fuck you, fuck your mom, you suck! Quit your job and go fuck yourself! I’m going to get all your fucking names!”

I’m seeing African American Federal Protective Service inspectors, twenty year’s law enforcement officer, being called the N-word to their face for the first time in their careers, by a scrawny, pasty white booger-eating communist shithead.

The DHS employee described some of the mental cases federal agents have to deal with day in and day out.

We get more surreal things yelled at us. One guy kept repeating, “You shot my fucking dog!” over and over, but we have seen zero dogs anywhere at any point. One guy wanders down the skirmish line when things are more in control and says, “Why are you shooting at them? You don’t need to. Their shields are made of cardboard. There’s no threat. No one is armed…” And he repeats that night after night with a backpack full of wildflowers, which he places everywhere.

Much of it is contradictory. One rioter begged to be shot, begged, but then screamed that we were guilty of shooting people. He told us to lay down our weapons and join them, and then said he would kick all our asses.

He told CIS that the rioters would be “overjoyed” if they got a non-lethal gunshot wound from DHS personnel because they all want to be a “famous” victim of police brutality,” and be the one who “irreversibly turned the tide against DHS and the administration.”

Meanwhile, the hated and reviled DHS officers are getting injured on a nightly basis from various weapons, including “rudimentary IEDs,” the officer said.

Regarding injuries to agents, I personally saw an agent get hit in the leg with a bottle and limp back from the skirmish line. I saw video of another agent hit similarly and limp back. One DHS law enforcement officer had irritant thrown on his arms, which turned them red and caused a burn. Another guy had a firework explode directly on his chest. The use of fireworks has increased every night.

There’s no intel of actual firearms. We picked up unexploded aerosol cans taped to commercial-grade fireworks, so rudimentary IEDs [Improvised Explosive Devices] are a thing too.

He concluded by saying that they are in a “lose-lose” situation.

“If federal law enforcement leaves, we lose face, but we walk away with stacks of overtime pay, and we get to go home,” he explained.

But on the other hand, by leaving, they would hand the left a propaganda victory amidst the smoldering ashes of downtown Portland, the DHS agent added.

“They get to say they defeated Trump, and they will have caused tens of millions of monetary loss to their downtown local businesses, and will have a ransacked and torched a courthouse in the heart of their city,” he said.

It’s still not clear who helps fund and organize the antifa rioters who in multiple cities across the nation appear increasingly armed with various weapons and fireworks, as well as helmets, umbrellas, makeshift shields, and even catered meals.

According to former federal prosecutor Jim Trusty, the DOJ will probably be indicting people as part of its probe into antifa.

“I think there’s a real good chance this Justice Department ends up identifying and indicting antifa financiers, or people associated with antifa,” adding that it could be “a bit of a bombshell,” Trusty said on Fox News, last month.

FBI Arrests Antifa Ringleader of Attempt to Topple Andrew Jackson Statue in DC

The alleged “ringleader” in a recent attempt to destroy the Andrew Jackson statue in Washington DC was arrested Thursday, and charged with destruction of federal property.

Jason Charter, a known antifa agitator, was arrested at his home by the FBI and U.S. Park Police as part of a joint task force, Fox News reported.

The militant is alleged to have played a major part in several attacks on historic monuments in recent weeks.

Photos of Charter unmasked can be seen at the Daily Mail and below.

The day before his arrest, Charter was on Twitter complaining that he was receiving death threats and saying he would protect his “castle” to “the fullest extent of the law.”

He was arrested “without incident,” law enforcement sources told Fox.

Charter’s Twitter profile says that he is a “political activist/organizer, and includes the hashtags #IAmAntifa #SmashRacism.

The antifa militant was allegedly in a leadership role on the night of June 22 when a mob of activists tried to pull down the statue in Lafayette Square near the White House.

Several other individuals, including Graham Lloyd, 37, were also arrested in connection with the incident.

The Maine man “is among four suspects facing a federal charge of destruction of government property causing damage over $1,000,” Bangor Daily News reported.

“They were very organized,” a federal law enforcement official said. “Charter was on top of the statue and directing people … they had acid, chisels, straps and a human chain preventing police from getting to the statue.”

The complaint cites a tweet from Charter that says, “Tearing down statues of traitors to the nation is a service to this nation not a crime.”

“At the Jackson Statue incident, Charter is additionally seen wearing a red set of ski goggles and a yellow ventilator mask. Charter’s face is clearly visible at different times during each incident,” the complaint alleges.

The FBI’s criminal complaint against Charter also accuses him of being involved in the destruction of the Albert Pike Historical Statue in Washington earlier this month.

Citing local news video, the FBI alleges that Charter is seen “standing over the toppled Pike Statue, pouring an unknown liquid onto the statue.”

The complaint said: “He is then observed waving others away from the statue, and squatting down behind the statue where his hands are not visible. Seconds later, the statue catches fire. Charter is seen standing over the flames as it burns.”

Additionally, Charter participated in “a June 26 protest at Lincoln Park in Washington – where demonstrators called for the removal of a statue of Abraham Lincoln,” according to the complaint.

During that incident, Charter was caught on video assaulting OANN journalist Jack Posobiec, who later filed an assault report with the police.

Charter was expected to make an appearance in U.S. District Court in Washington on Thursday, according to Fox News.

“This is a pretty big story, given all the media attention paid to the attempted destruction of these statues and many others across the country,” said Fox’s Doug McKelway. “The proximity to the White House … the first court appearance …”

Doug McKelway turned toward his left and right to sarcastically showcase “the huge throng of media” that were present to report on the story. Of course, no other media outlet besides Fox had showed up to cover the antifa terrorist’s first court appearance because Democrats and their allies in the media want you to believe that antifa violence is a made-up, imaginary problem.

Last week, President Trump signed an executive order directing the Justice Department to prioritize prosecution of activists who damage federal monuments and limit federal funding for local governments that do not adequately protect those monuments.

Trump tweeted last Tuesday that he had authorized federal officials to “arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veterans’ Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent.”

Department of Justice officials, according to a source with knowledge, have been frustrated that all the statue preservation efforts have been left to the DOJ with zero cooperation from feckless blue mayors in blue states. “The time to save the statue is NOT IN THE COURTROOM but at the time of its toppling,” the person said.

North Portland Looks Like ‘War Zone’ After Antifa Allowed to Rampage For Hours

Parts of Portland Oregon look like a “war zone” after a mob of about 200 antifa militants went on a destructive rampage late Thursday night into early Friday morning.

While the police stood by and watched, according to Portland-based journalist Andy Ngo, the antifa rioters tried to set up an “autonomous zone” outside the Portland Police North Precinct using barricades and stolen property.

“They’re occupying the space & trying to recreate another autonomous zone like the one they did outside Ted Wheeler’s condo,” he reported on Twitter. “A separate mob is demonstrating downtown.”

Throughout the early morning hours, the agitators started fires, smashed windows, looted and vandalized buildings. Militants also broke into a bank and also set fire to the Portland Police Bureau’s North Precinct, according to Oregon Live.

After the antifa militants fired mortars and paintballs at officers, resulting in multiple injuries, Portland police finally administered CS gas to disperse them, KATU News reporter Dan McCarthy reported. Only four people were arrested.

The radicals were allowed to do an extensive amount of property damage before they were shut down.

Ngo shared some of the appalling images of the riot on Twitter.

Businesses in Portland have been massively damaged by violent riots in recent weeks.

Earlier this week, the Portland Business Alliance released a statement claiming that “the downtown area has lost more than $23 million – $4 million from physical damages, and $18 million in lost revenue.”

As Ngo noted on Twitter, it is antifa’s “stated strategy” to harm the economy through violent riots (or “protests” as the corporate media calls them).

 

A Portland antifa Twitter account taunted Portland PD after it announced on Twitter that a few futile arrests had been made.

“This is true,” Ngo responded in a tweet. “Portland antifa have crowdfunded hundreds of thousands to bail out violent rioters & their co-conspirators using @gofundme & other sites. DA not pursuing charges of most. They’ve mastered propaganda & have a cohort of media puppets willing to amplify their lies.”

After the sun came up Friday morning, Ngo surveyed the damage done to the area.

The Portland PD released a statement describing the night’s events, saying said in part:

At approximately 1:21 a.m., officers began dispersing the crowd in an effort to move them from the immediate area. While performing this lawful action, demonstrators fought with officers. Furthermore, demonstrators shot officers with paintball rounds, causing officers not to be able to see out of their face shields. Around 1:40 a.m., a mortar was launched on to the roof of North Precinct. During this time, crowd control munitions were deployed.

By 2:14 a.m., demonstrators had set the north side of North Precinct on fire. To protect the life and safety of police personnel and community members inside the precinct, CS gas was used to disperse the crowd. Several demonstrators picked up the canisters of CS gas and threw it at the police.

Around 2:56 a.m., demonstrators began looting and setting fire to businesses in the area. Several business windows were broken and fires were set to property. By 3:30 a.m., a majority of the crowd had dispersed.

For the antifa militants, it was yet another successful and productive night in Portland.

Indictments Likely Coming Down in Durham Probe and Antifa Financing Probe, Former Fed Says

A former federal prosecutor said Tuesday that he believes that the reason congressional Democrats are working so hard to smear Attorney General William Barr is to “preempt” what will soon be coming down in two Department of Justice investigations.

Jim Trusty, formerly the Chief of the Organized Crime Section at the DOJ, now a partner at Ifrah Law, said Dems are doing “damage control” because U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe, and a DOJ investigation into antifa’s financing are about to result in some “bombshell” indictments.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler recently vowed to subpoena Attorney General Bill Barr to compel him to testify before his panel on the firing of U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey Berman.

Rep. Jim Jordan scorched Nadler in a letter Tuesday, accusing him of taking an “odd and decidedly partisan posture” toward the attorney general since his confirmation.

“The Attorney General had previously agreed to appear voluntarily in March, before you cancelled the hearing due to the coronavirus pandemic,” Jordan wrote. “Attorney General Barr remains willing to testify voluntarily once the pandemic concludes. Accordingly, there is no legitimate basis for you to compel his testimony at this time.”

Trusty told Fox News’ Jon Scott that Barr is not likely to be worried about being cross-examined by Nadler or any other Democrats on the panel on the firing of Berman. The lawyer argued that the president has every right to fire U.S. attorneys, pointing out that former President Bill Clinton fired 93 U.S. attorneys when he came into office.

“They’re trying to make it into this incredibly important inquisition about the misdeeds of Mr. Barr, and I gotta tell ya, I don’t think for a minute that Bill Barr is shaking in his boots or worrying about whether he has to appear by way of subpoena or just by volunteering,” he said.  “The president can move people around and the president can put new U.S. attorneys into office at his pleasure.”

Trusty explained that the reason Democrats are trying to dirty up Barr and Durham is because indictments are coming in the Durham probe “that will be significant.” He likened the Dems’ posture to a “preemptive strike” designed to discredit Durham and Barr among Americans.

Trusty also told Scott that the DOJ will probably be indicting people as part of its probe into antifa, the violent far-left group President Trump recently designated as a terrorist organization.

Barr told Fox News’ Bret Baier earlier this month that “focused investigations” were already underway that “relate to Antifa.”

“It’s a very loosely organized group, and they have an unusual system of communication and organization,” Barr said. “There are people who can be characterized as leaders in any given situation.”

The DOJ has made finding out who is behind the recent unrest a top priority.

“There appear to be sources of funding, and we are looking into the sources of funding,” Barr said. “And, you know, there is clearly some high degree of organization involved at some of these events and and coordinated tactics that we’re seeing. And we’re looking into that as well. And some of it relates to Antifa. Some of it relates to groups that act very much like Antifa. As I said, there’s a witches’ brew of extremist groups that are trying to exploit this situation on all sides.”

Trusty said “I think there’s a real good chance this Justice Department ends up identifying and indicting antifa financiers, or people associated with antifa,” adding that it could be “a bit of a bombshell.”

The attorney predicted that Democrats “will go after Barr every day” until the indictments come down.

Andy Ngo Files Lawsuit Seeking $900,000 from Rose City Antifa for 2019 Assaults

Independent journalist Andy Ngo is suing a Portland-based antifa cell and several specific individuals nearly a year after he was brutally assaulted by a mob of black clad, masked agitators.

Ngo is seeking $900,000 in damages “for assault, battery, emotional distress and racketeering by those who acted to ‘suppress Ngo’s journalism through intimidation and violence,’ and for “ongoing neurological and health issues,” the Portland Tribune reported. A PDF of the lawsuit is here.

The complaint cites two other assaults on Ngo, one during a May 1 protest near an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Southwest Portland, and another that took place inside a local gym on May 7, 2019.

On June 29, 2019, the journalist was allegedly assaulted by members of Rose City Antifa during a street rally in downtown Portland while police officers stood back and did nothing.

Ngo would later tell Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the assault happened just “a stone’s throw away from Portland’s most important institutions of the rule of law—the court houses, the central police precinct.”

He was initially treated at a hospital emergency room and later admitted into the hospital to treat a serious head injury.

The Portland Police Department failed to arrest the any of the agitators caught on video assaulting Ngo during the demonstration, so he decided to take matters into his own hands.

“Antifa is an openly extremist movement with the training and intent of destabilizing this country and overthrowing our constitution,” Ngo said during a live-streamed press conference. “The protection of foolish politicians and the media have emboldened this movement to carry out unprecedented terrorist attacks.”

Listed as defendants in the lawsuit are Rose City Antifa, an “unincorporated association,” Corbyn Belyea, alleged Rose City Anitfa member Benjamin Bolen, local activist John Hacker, Madison Lee Allen and Joseph Christian Evans, who the lawsuit says lives under the Burnside Bridge, as well as 50 unnamed parties.

The lawsuit was filed by James L. Buchal — the chair of the Multnomah County Republicans, who is additionally defending Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson against criminal charges — Harmeet K. Dhillon, and the Center for American Liberty.

While not directly listed as defendants, Dhillon said she plans to pursue discovery and hold liable other associates listed into the 17-page suit, including alleged antifa leader Luis Marquez and Pop Mob, a local Portland group alleged to coordinate with Rose City Antifa.

The lawsuit accuses Bolen of punching Ngo during the May 1 protest, and accuses Hacker of throwing an “unnamed liquid” on Ngo at the local gym.

Finally, the suit alleges that six people wearing masks of Ngo’s face appeared outside his family home to terrorize him on Halloween.

Ngo and Dhillon seem to have concluded that there’s virtually no chance of getting redress for the assaults in the deep blue city of Portland.

“The mayor is very openly left wing and has never criticized antifa one time,” said Ngo of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who is also the police commissioner.

Dhillon described incoming Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt as “a prosecutor who doesn’t believe in prosecution from what I can tell.”

Dhillon said in a statement that when Ngo reported the assaults to state and local authorities, they couldn’t be bothered.

He received “less than zero attention from them, which is really unfortunate because it is the job of law enforcement to keep citizens safe from these types of criminal assaults,” Dhillon said.

“Among the charges in this complaint is an Oregon racketeering corrupt organization’s charge due to the fact that antifa and its allies work in coordination with one another to carry out these assaults, not just on Andy, but on other journalists,” she added.

Biden Campaign Staffers Donate to Group that Pays Bail for Antifa and BLM Rioters in Minneapolis

At least thirteen campaign staffers for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden have made donations—possibly in coordination with the campaign—to a group that pays bail fees for Black Lives Matter and antifa agitators in Minneapolis.

According to Reuters, the staff members posted on Friday and Saturday that they were donating to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a group that opposes the practice of cash bail.

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”

But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests.

From 12:20 a.m. Friday to 11:21 a.m. Saturday, 57 agitators were arrested in Minneapolis, according to Twin Cities.com, and most of them were from Minnesota.

 

According to a new narrative promoted by various Democrats on Saturday, the violence and mayhem that roiled the Twin Cities these past few days was instigated by white supremacists, Trump supporters, and/or Russia.

If the Democrats are correct that most of the lawbreaking at these riots are being done by violent and dangerous white supremacists and Trump supporters, that poses a dilemma for the Biden Campaign. Why in the world would the team Biden want to contribute toward the bail of Nazis?

The mayor of Minneapolis also peddled the lie that the violence in Minneapolis was largely the fault of white supremacists.

Minnesota’s attorney general, the execrable Keith Ellison, also spent Saturday pushing disinformation about “far-right extremists” wreaking havoc at the protests  on Twitter.

Ellison, a far-left Muslim who was credibly accused of sexual assault in 2018, is himself an antifa supporter.

Ellison removed the above tweet of himself endorsing “Antifa The Anti-Fascist Handbook” from Twitter on Friday, according to RealClearInvestigation’s Paul Sperry.

After a full day of democrat disinformation about the make-up of the agitators, Attorney General William Barr sought to correct the record in a statement.

“In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized and driven by anarchistic left extremist groups—far left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics,” he said, stating the obvious.

Antifa Goons Allowed to Go on Another Violent Rampage in Portland

Authorities in Portland, Oregon, appear to have given violent antifa militants free rein to assault journalists and innocent bystanders at will in the streets of the city.

Last June, independent journalist Andy Ngo was assaulted by a mob of masked agitators during a street rally in downtown Portland while police officers stood back and did nothing. He was initially treated at a hospital emergency room and later admitted into the hospital overnight to treat a serious head injury.

And over the weekend, local videographer Brandon Brown and several other independent journalists were attacked by a menacing mob of antifa militants while filming a demonstration in downtown Portland.

The antifa goons showed up to counter-protest a planned Ku Klux Klan/white supremacy rally at a downtown park, but that rally was apparently a hoax that was cancelled at the last minute. With nothing else to do, the militants targeted journalists who showed up to cover the event, the police, public property, and at least one person on their own side.

The violent agitators are seen in videos using metal-tipped umbrellas to jab at people and chase them down the street. Police say they also threw rocks, concrete, batons, cans and food at members of the public and at officers.

The police—AGAIN—stood down to allow the anarcho-terrorists to assault their targets unimpeded.

Brown’s first-person video shows him walking through the crowd and getting mobbed by the militants while police stand nearby on bicycles. The mob proceeded to harass and assault Brown, kicking him, poking him with umbrellas, and dousing him in the face with bear spray.

Brown explained what happened on his GoFundMe account, which he started in December after he was physically attacked by an antifa mob in Olympia, Washington. While he was filming that demonstration, they broke his glasses and injured his eye, requiring a trip to the hospital. They also broke or stole his expensive video equipment. Brown told American Greatness that only one person was arrested in that attack.

In an update, Brown wrote that he knew of at least six other videographers who were attacked on Saturday while police stood by. He also noted that were a number of regular folks who “were unlucky enough to be walking through the area” during the riot. Those people were put in danger because of the city’s refusal confront the violent mob.

On Saturday, February 8, I again set out to cover an ANTIFA protest, this time in Portland, Oregon. When I arrived, I went directly to the police, who were stationed at a corner near the ANTIFA group, and asked if there was an area where they would like journalists to set up. I was told there was no such designated area, so I walked down the block to where I could see that several photographers and videographers had already gathered.

As I approached, the atmosphere seemed tense, but fairly calm, until someone sounded an alarm and threw a tennis ball at me, to direct the crowd’s attention to my location. Immediately I was surrounded by an angry mob, poking at me with sharp umbrella tips, throwing projectiles and spraying bear mace. I had done nothing to provoke this attack. I was surrounded. One girl jabbed my back with a sharp licence plate, of all things! A man threw a wine bottle, hitting me in the back. I was repeatedly punched and kicked. I continued filming, while backing away, toward the police presence. I was temporarily blinded by the bear mace which was purposely sprayed in my eyes.

Regular people who were unlucky enough to be walking through the area were trying desperately just to get away. I was eventually led by a police officer to their staging area, where there was first aid available. My eyes were rinsed, and I was told I had better leave the area because the police were leaving.

I was not the only one singled out for this attack. Shane Kohfield, who had attended wearing a sweat shirt he’d custom made to try and bring people together, (“Make America Great Again for Everyone!”) was assaulted and doused with black paint. I know of at least six other photographers who were harassed, assaulted and chased from the scene, yet the police stationed at the corner did not intervene. I find this situation incomprehensible!

I believe that it is very important that the actions of this group calling themselves ANTIFA be truthfully documented, otherwise I would not be doing this. They are a danger to the public. They purport to be counter protesters against fascism, yet that is false advertising. All this violence and vandalism very often takes place where there is no fascist group demonstrating to begin with.

“I fail to understand the moral degradation present in an Antifa mob,” Brown told American Greatness.

Independent journalist Any Ngo posted video of another videographer being attacked by the antifa mob.

Videographer Nate Milsap of Stumptown Videos ran to the police for protection, but an officer told him that police were standing down.

“We’re not going to come out and save you,” a police officer can be heard on video telling the independent journalist. The officer told him to “come up with a different plan” because they wouldn’t be helping.

Milsap described what happened to him on the Stumptown Videos YouTube channel.

On Saturday February 8th 2020, Stumptown Matters went into Downtown Portland Oregon to film and document the protest of a KKK rally that was reported to take place that day. When I arrived at the scene, I learned that the KKK cancelled their event. I despise the KKK and racism in general. I was actually looking forward to siding with Antifa on this day.

For they had real and legit racists to confront had the KKK followed through with their initial plans. So ultimately I stood across the street from the Antifa Gathering and gazed upon them just to estimate the number of their turnout. which was probably 300 to 500 people. I was planning on leaving and I hadn’t even begun filming yet.

Then Luis Marquez called me out by name. I said hello and then I raised my camera to start filming the commotion. Then a masked group of 20 or more people began to spread out and cross the street from where Luis was standing and began to walk fast toward me. They had concealed objects or weapons in their hands. one of which was approaching me while shaking a can of pepper spray. I wanted no part of whatever intentions they had for me so I immediately abandoned my camera duties and sprinted to safety.

I didnt want to be hurt or pepper sprayed and I didn’t want to hurt any of them either. So running was the only sensible action to me at that moment. People can call me a pussy all day long until they are blue in the face. That’s perfectly fine with me. I simply did not want to play and I got away unharmed. My safe space happened to be the justice center where the riot police confronted me and told me that if I go back out where I was, then they wouldnt protect me. Implying once again that masked thugs run the streets of portland Oregon and if you are targeted by them, then you are the problem according to portland police.

In broad daylight, masked agitators also vandalized a war memorial near the Portland Police central precinct, spray painting it with anti-cop messages:

Antifa agitators pushed a left-wing protester into the street because they thought she was a snitch, according to Ngo.

During the four-hour melee, a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle and transported to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, police said. The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and cooperated with officers.

Fox News reported:

At least two incendiary devices, believed to be flares, were thrown into nearby traffic, police said. The event spanned nearly four hours and required a “large police response” that limited the department’s ability to respond to calls for service citywide.

Messages reading “Punch Cops,” “Kill Cops,” and “All Cops are Bastards” could be seen on the memorial in photos released by police.

Portland Fire and Rescue medics had to treat three people for exposure to pepper spray wielded by civilians.

Only three people were arrested during the riot.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said Willy Cannon, 25, was charged with a misdemeanor for abusing a memorial and a felony for criminal mischief. In addition to Cannon, the sheriff’s office said Brandon Farley, 31, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and Heaven Davis, 19, was charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief.

“Law enforcement officers did not use force against anyone during this event,” the police bureau proudly stated. But they did ask the criminals to pretty please stop throwing projectiles at them.

Police Chief Jami Resch said antifa’s actions “negatively impacted public safety of the entire city because resources had to be diverted to this event.”

“I want to acknowledge the community members who came down to peacefully assemble and exercise their freedom of speech rights,” Resch said in a statement. “Unfortunately, a group of people chose to engage in dangerous, illegal behavior. I appreciate the thoughtful, measured response by our officers and law enforcement partners.”

Creepy: Antifa Goons Show Up at Journalist Andy Ngo’s Home in Andy Ngo Masks on Halloween

A group of punks wearing print-out masks of Andy Ngo’s face, appeared outside the Portland-based journalist’s home Halloween night in a scene reminiscent of “The Purge.”

Ngo posted the home security system video of the unsettling incident onto Twitter Friday morning. The spooky video shows the goons, clad in hooded sweatshirts and printout masks, approaching Ngo’s front door to “trick or treat.”

“These 6 individuals wearing print-out masks of my face approached my family’s home last night, repeatedly rang doorbell, pounded on window, recorded footage of property & gestured at cameras. There were no candy bags. This follows their doxing of my elderly mom’s small business,” Ngo, who was home at the time, wrote in the tweet.

Antifa already had a bad reputation, but this creepy and threatening behavior really took their “activism” to the next level.

According to the Post Millennial blog, “the 48-second long video is a shortened version of an encounter that lasted ‘several minutes.'”

Ngo told the Post Millennial that “This is the latest addition to a long list of antifa-related individuals doxing, threatening, and promising to hurt or kill me or my family.”

Ngo also mentioned that police were called during the incident, but that the gang had fled before they had arrived. Ngo says police took a report, but was informed that people with masks “are hard, if not impossible to identify.”

Antifa goons in the area have an intense hatred for Ngo because he films their despicable antics at protests and posts the videos online.

Back in June, the independent journalist was assaulted and robbed by a violent antifa mob during a street rally in downtown Portland. He was hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury following the incident.

Videos show Ngo being attacked with pepper or bear spray as well as with eggs and “milkshakes” that police later said contained cement. Police have made zero arrests of the assailants even though at least one was caught on camera without a mask.

Ngo recently disclosed on Twitter that he continues to suffer from the brain bleed he sustained.

Antifa goons are now threatening to disrupt a lecture the journalist is giving at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC next week.

The lecture, titled Behind the Mask: Antifa’s Plan to Undermine Liberal Democracy, is scheduled for next Thursday.

Proud Boys Members Sentenced to 4 Years for Defending Themselves Against Antifa

Two members of the Proud Boys were sentenced to four years in prison each after fighting members of Antifa in October of last year, ABC reports.

The incident took place outside a venue where Proud Boys founder and media commentator Gavin McInnes was giving a speech. The Proud Boys members, 27-year-old Maxwell Hare and 40-year-old John Kinsman, were among those who were attacked by Antifa protesters, with one of them instigating the brawl by throwing a bottle at the Proud Boys.

The judge in the case, Mark Dwyer, openly admitted that his reasoning for the harsh sentence was largely political: He compared the incident to “political street brawls” reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s, indirectly comparing the Proud Boys to Nazis. Dwyer said his goal was to dissuade people from such violence by making an example out of Hare and Kinsman.

The Antifa rioters who started the violence were never found, and the organization has explicitly refused to cooperate with police, thus leaving most of the focus on the Proud Boys. Prosecutors have maintained that if the Antifa members who started the fight had been found, they too would have been prosecuted.

Both Hare and Kinsman expressed regret at their sentencing. Kinsman is married with three children, including a newborn that he will not see until the child is five years old due to his sentence.

Proud Boys was founded by McInnes in 2016 as a male advocacy and pro-Western Civilization fraternal organization. It has repeatedly and falsely been labeled as “far-right” by the media and a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Proud Boys have repeatedly fought back against Antifa riots, including, most prominently, in the city of Portland, Oregon.

In addition to Hare and Kinsman, seven other members of the Proud Boys took plea deals for their role in the fight, while one other member is awaiting his own trial.

Canada’s Antifa Enablers

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and—incredibly—the Conservative Party establishment are defending the black-clad attackers of an elderly woman with a walker.

Free and safe discourse about key political issues, like immigration, faces serious challenges today, not just in America, but in Canada as well.

Recently, at a sold-out event outside Toronto hosted by U.S. commentator Dave Rubin and leader of the anti-globalist People’s Party of Canada (PPC), Maxime Bernier, dozens of “anti-fascist” protestors (yes, they’re big in Canada too) tried to shut down proceedings by intimidating and shoving attendees and subjecting them to screaming chants of “Nazi scum, off our streets!” They call the PPC names like “Nazi” because it’s the only party in Canada concerned about the effects of multiculturalism and Canada’s record-high immigration levels.

In a now-viral video filmed outside the venue, mask-wearing thugs can be seen shouting in the face of an old lady with a walker and blocking her pathway to the entrance doors.

Despite the video gaining national news coverage in Canada (including big coverage in the United States), no elected politician outside the PPC has condemned the attacks. Instead, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has condemned threats made against the old lady’s harasser; a wealthy, young immigrant from Syria named Alaa Alsoufi whose family temporarily closed their restaurant in downtown Toronto, apparently in response to the threats after his name was revealed. Shockingly, both the leader of the conservative opposition party and establishment conservatives in the media have followed suit. A nation certainly is in a rotten state when its elite go out of their way to take the side of a grandma-bashing, Stalinist thug.

One irony apparently lost on the antifa organizers was that the topic for the PPC event was slated to be the state of free speech in Canada. An additional lost irony was how eerily close their “anti-Nazi” chant resembles “Clear the streets for the brown battalions/Clear the streets for the storm division” of Horst Weissel Lied, the official anthem of the actual Nazis from World War II. This would include the main instigator of the protest, the Canadian Anti-Hate Network (CAHN); a gestapo-like group that not only partners with and is partly funded by the disgraced U.S. outfit, the Southern Poverty Law Center—which numerous insiders have stated operates solely to scare and defraud money from gullible donors—but which is being sued for fraudulent activities in Ontario court.

Unlike the SPLC, however, their Canadian partners apparently won’t condemn the kinds of violent tactics so routine at antifa “protests”—tactics which have earned them the designation of a “domestic terror group” both here in Canada and by the Department of Homeland Security under former President Obama. Not only that, CAHN Executive Directive Evan Balgord and Chairman Bernie Farber have gone so far as publicly to defend the group’s mask-wearing and violent activity.

Most unfortunately in Canada today, compared to these Stalinist street thugs and professional “hate-monitors,” our established political parties are little different. The PPC is brand new, having formed only last year as an alternative to, as our leader describes them, the “intellectually and morally corrupt” Conservative Party of Canada. The far-Left New Democrats have called for efforts to try and stop the PPC from participating in official party leader election debates, while this past Spring, Justin Trudeau’s center-Left Liberal Party signed the “Digital Charter” against “hate speech,” and moved to bring back a notorious law barring online speech that exposed groups to mere contempt. All the while the establishment Conservative Party have remained silent.

Simply put, in Canada today, free speech and the number of elites who support it, is shrinking fast and Americans must ensure the same doesn’t happen in their home country. As Rebel News-founder and Canadian Ezra Levant once said, “What happens in Canada today often happens in the United States tomorrow. We’re like a political laboratory for bad experiments.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Brennan, a liberal member of the court, once warned that whatever is added to the field of prohibited speech is necessarily taken from the field of free debate. The PPC has written its free speech platform around this very message. As it proudly states, freedom of conscience and freedom of expression, when fully protected, “advance the intellectual life of a nation, foster greater ideological diversity and societal understanding, and nurture other freedoms necessary for a successful democracy.” In an open society where free inquiry reigns, anti-intellectual extremism can never take hold. Thankfully, like you Americans, this is what the vast majority of Canadians want and believe in.

Only One Arrest in Minneapolis, Despite Videos Showing Assaults on Trump Supporters

Only one arrest for property damage and one citation was made outside President Donald Trump’s rally in downtown Minneapolis Thursday, even though left-wing thugs were caught on tape assaulting Trump supporters. Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo confirmed on Friday that members of the antifa mob also threw bottles of urine at the police and assaulted their horses.

Said Arradondo: “some protesters threw bottles, rocks and containers of liquid believed to be urine at police officers, and some struck officers’ horses with sticks.”

He also confirmed that officers used chemical irritants on some demonstrators, and “used appropriate levels of force … while responding to, at times, violent and aggressive individuals causing harm to others in attendance.”

Yet none of the “violent and aggressive individuals causing harm to others in attendance” were arrested. Why is that?

Video footage has spread far and wide on social media showing rampaging thugs assaulting Trump supporters in scenes reminiscent of the movie “The Purge.”  In many cases the perpetrators’ faces weren’t even covered.

As American Greatness reported on Friday, a Minnesota state rep. who was part of the antifa mob outside of the Target Center, actually boasted on Twitter that she was able to talk left-wing Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey into having the police stand down, leaving the Trump supporters more vulnerable. Frey has denied issuing a stand down order, which puts him at odds with his fellow Democrat Gomez.

But the fact remains that multiple unprovoked assaults on innocent Trump supporters were allowed to go unpunished.

“Officers worked to ensure people’s First Amendment right to assemble, speak freely and protest,” Arradondo said in Friday’s statement. “MPD appreciates the community support demonstrated by the law-abiding attendees and their partnership to create a peaceful expression of passionate views.”

But the left-wing mob that gathered outside the Trump rally were not “protesters” peacefully assembling to express “passionate views.” They  were there for only one reason—to intimidate and terrorize Trump supporters. Why else would they be staked outside of the convention center doors waiting for the Trump supporters to come out?

A reporter for the Minnesota-based news site Alpha News was at the protest and witnessed the violence first-hand.

The reporter, Willis Krumholz, says Trump supporters who were hurt during the rally “should seek legal counsel and file a suit against Frey on the basis of a civil rights violation (42 USC 1983).”

Democrats so far have refused to answer any questions about the violent protest. This is especially important, given that one of their own—DFL state rep Aisha Gomez—was among the leftwing mob.

Specifically questions that have not been answered are:

“Do you disavow the protesters who threw urine at cops, and hit and spit on Trump supporters?”
“Do you disavow the use of rhetoric like ‘kill a cop, save a life,’ and ‘blue lives don’t matter’?”
“Do you disavow political violence?”
“Do you disavow Mayor Frey for not allowing the Minneapolis Police to defend themselves?”
“Do you disavow state rep. Aisha Gomez for associating herself with the most violent group of protesters?”

A similar debacle happened four years ago in downtown Minneapolis when well-heeled Republican donors attending a Trump fundraiser were assaulted, robbed and spat upon by a violent leftist mob as they were leaving the event.

Attendees said that even though there was a strong law enforcement presence at the convention center where the fundraiser was held, they were not afforded any police protection going into and leaving the event. Because it seemed obvious that the left-wing agitators weren’t in any fear of being arrested, one of the Trump supporters said, “it was almost like they were in cahoots.”

Indeed, there were no arrests at that time either and the Minneapolis Police Department insisted that there was no stand-down order.

Scenes of bloody, antifa-fueled violence marred Trump rallies with appalling regularity throughout 2016, although the media tried to blame the violence on Trump’s rhetoric.

As the 2020 election season approaches, it is crucial that left-wing officials in Democrat-run cities are held accountable for their refusal to protect Republicans exercising the right to support their president in public. Because unless there are consequences for this dereliction of duty, violence against Trump supporters in Democrat-run cities will not only continue, it will get worse.

Minnesota State Rep Was Among Antifa Mob Harassing Trump Supporters After Rally

A Democrat member of the Minnesota House of Representatives was among the far-left riffraff that harassed and intimidated Trump supporters as they left the Trump rally in Minneapolis Thursday night. Rep. Aisha Gomez (DFL) was seen consorting with a member of the antifa mob as he hurled profanities at Republicans as they drove by.

Hundreds of leftists gathered outside of the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis to scream at Trump’s supporters and tell them to go home.

Before the rally, a middle aged woman, her husband, and her 75-year-old mother were harassed by the vicious mob as they made their way into the venue, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

“Shame on you!” agitators screamed, blowing whistles in their faces. “How does it feel to be a racist and a bigot?” one asked. The woman later told the Strib, “I think that was the worst of society imaginable.”

After the rally, the “protest” descended into chaos as left-wing protesters and antifa radicals assaulted Trump supporters, clashed with police, and burned “Make America Great Again” hats.

“Nazi scum off our streets!” the agitators screamed, flipping off Trump supporters as they drove through the throng.

Clad in black, Rep. Aisha Gomez (DFL) was seen among the mob of leftists intimidating people as they left the rally.

Gomez was videotaped greeting and hugging one of the agitators as he shook his fist and hurled profanities at the cars as they pass by.

Andy Mannix, a reporter for the Star Tribune videotaped some of the unruly antifa action outside the Target Center. Gomez can be seen four minutes into the video.

As the mob turned violent, police at times deployed a chemical irritant to subdue the troublemakers.

Gomez boasted on Twitter that she was able to talk left-wing Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey into having the police stand down, leaving the Trump supporters more vulnerable.

“Does the MN House Speaker support Rep Gomez (dressed in all black wearing a hood) participating in an ANTIFA rally that clashed w MPD?” asked Jon Justice, a radio host on Minneapolis’ news talk station AM 1130. “Did any of her other caucus members join in the ANTIFA protests, and does Gov Walz support DFL Legislators joining ANTIFA in their anti-police riot?”
