    President Trump said Saturday that he was watching "very closely" as Portland, Ore., braces for dueling far-right and antifa protests planned for this weekend. In a tweet, the president wrote that he was still considering declaring antifa, an anti-fascism group, a terrorist organization. "Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!" Trump tweeted. Trump's tweet came as Portland leaders plan a major law enforcement presence ahead of dueling demonstrations expected to take place Saturday. City officials said all of...

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 8, 2019 | Hans von Spakovsky and Greg Walsh
    Enough is enough. The U.S. Justice Department needs to immediately open a criminal civil rights investigation of Antifa, an affiliation of radical activists and left-wing groups whose name, ironically enough, is short for “anti-fascists.” Its attack on journalist Andy Ngo was beyond the pale. Federal law enforcement has an obligation to stop any extremist organization that is apparently organizing and precipitating violent attacks, especially if state and local authorities seem reluctant to take action against what has all the makings of a domestic terrorist organization. We cannot have any confidence that the political leadership of the city of Portland will...
  • Bolshevik rampages in Portland, Andy Ngo beaten by Antifa Brown Shirts (Update)

    The brutal Antifa violence inflicted on journalist Andy Ngo in Portland is part of a growing wave of leftist violent confrontations across the country. The attack appears to have implicit support from local Democrat authorities, including Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler. It’s increasingly clear that from Portland to Berkeley to Charlottesville, Virginia, hardcore leftist brown shirts, led by a growing cadre of Antifa thugs, are resorting to open violence. Intimidation on a regular basis is an acceptable method of political discourse.

    Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell is calling for Facebook to de-platform Antifa on the heels of conservative writer Andy Ngo being attacked by members of the group in Portland, Ore. on Saturday. "The Department of Homeland Security has formally classified their activities as domestic terrorist violence. It is an amazing thing, to me, that Facebook thinks it is perfectly fine to have domestic terrorists on their site and not remove them,” Bozell told Fox News. “Antifa needs to be de-platformed. This is a mistake and I hope Facebook rethinks it." ... Antifa has a Facebook group with over 4,500...

    There was a time when America’s big city mayors were real leaders. While few of them we so arrogant as to claim the title of “America’s Mayor” as did Rudy Giuliani, as a breed they exemplified the “take charge,” “get it done” attitude that voters respected and appreciated. Now, in the Snowflake Era that is seeing our country’s college campuses turn into adult day care centers, a number of elected mayors have transitioned to timid, “touchy-feely” office holders afraid to take bold action to protect their citizens and the institutions within their jurisdictions.  Portland, Oregon’s Ted Wheeler personifies this new...

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler should be investigated by federal law enforcement officials following his handling of the protests in his city this weekend that saw a conservative writer purportedly attacked by members of Antifa, Sen. Ted Cruz said. The comments from the Texas Republican come as a video is circulating on the internet purportedly showing editor Andy Ngo being pelted with eggs, milkshakes and other objects on Saturday in Oregon’s largest city. At least three people were arrested and several others were reported injured there throughout the day during a series of demonstrations, as members of Antifa and other leftist...

    The lawyer for independent journalist Andy Ngo, who was allegedly beaten up and robbed by antifa members while covering a protest in Portland, Ore., on Saturday, says those responsible for the attack are going to face maximum legal repercussions. “Goodnight everyone except Antifa criminals who I plan to sue into oblivion and then sow salt into their yoga studios and avocado toast stands until nothing grows there, not even the glimmer of a violent criminal conspiracy aided by the effete impotence of a cowed city government,” Harmeet Dhillon wrote on Twitter.

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D-Ore.) is facing backlash for his continued tolerance of Antifa violence in his city, following the attack of Quillette reporter Andy Ngo. On Saturday, Ngo was covering a protest between a white supremacist Proud Boys group and the local Antifa protesters. During the protests, a group singled out Ngo — who has an extensive record of covering Antifa protests to highlight violent outbreaks — and attacked him. The group hit him with “milkshakes” that reportedly contained a concrete mixture and proceeded to beat him. -snip Some speculated that Wheeler may have ordered the police to stand down from...

    Sometime over the weekend, anonymous vandals stuck a garden hose through the front-door mail slot of lawyer Sean Riddell’s Northeast Portland office and left the water running. Someone who works in the office -- a house converted into business space -- discovered the mess about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Among Riddell’s work for the ICE employees’ union, he asked Oregon and federal officials last October to investigate Mayor Ted Wheeler for directing Portland police officers not to respond to some calls for service at a protest outside the Southwest Macadam ICE field office.

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved. “I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.” The video posted by journalist Andy C. Ngo showed protesters, including members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, blocking an intersection and attempting to direct traffic at while officers on...

    During aggressive protests by criminal Occupy Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) rioters at federal facilities in Oregon, Portland’s Mayor implemented dangerously restrictive police procedures that ordered officers to ignore calls for help from federal law enforcement personnel under attack. Instead of proactive support, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) were limited to a passive “liaison” role with the Federal Protection Service (FSP). According to records obtained by Judicial Watch, PPB officers were only allowed to respond to life-threatening attacks and 911 calls made by ICE agents and FPS officers. Portland’s Mayor, Ted Wheeler, also serves as the city’s Police Bureau Commissioner. Wheeler...

Through attorney Sean Riddell, the union on Monday criticized the mayor for his laissez faire approach to a protest at the local ICE field office, which lasted five weeks. When the protest began, Wheeler announced that he would not allow Portland police officers to be "sucked into a conflict" over the protest and said federal police would be responsible for protecting their own building...
