Posted on 08/31/2020 5:21:55 AM PDT by Kaslin
We are living in truly dangerous times.
In the midst of a global pandemic that has taken the lives of more than 180,000 Americans, protests, riots, looting, vandalism, and violence have gripped cities across the country for months.
The most recent example occurred on Thursday, following President Trumps Republican National Convention speech.
Attendees of the address, including several convention speakers and members of Congress, were ruthlessly harassed and threatened by a mob of left-wing radicals as they exited the White House.
Among those most in danger were Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., his wife, and two of their female friends. Just one block from his hotel, Paul was surrounded by a group of more than 100 people, who began shouting threats at Paul and attempting to grab him.
A small group of Washington, D.C. police officers then gathered around Paul and started to escort the senator to safety. Then, the mob turned even more violent.
Theyre attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and hes trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure hes OK because he's our defense, Paul said in an interview with Fox & Friends on Friday. If hes down, the mobs loose on us."
I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, Paul added, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless.
Unfortunately, the chaos in Washington, D.C. on Thursday evening is just one event in a long list of violent attacks waged by leftists over the past three months.
In May, protesters torched a police station in Minneapolis and set fire to numerous other buildings in the area, including nearby St. Paul.
Earlier this summer, far-left Marxists in Seattle seized control of several city blocks and declared it an autonomous zone, pushing police out of large parts of the city, leading to anarchy. Not until two teenagers were murdered did the far-left Seattle city government clear protesters out of the area.
More recently in Seattle, radicals cemented shut the doors to a police station before attempting to set it on fire.
For three months, leftists in Portland have been in a near-perpetual state of rioting. Countless police have been attacked, with rioters using everything from paint-filled balloons to fireworks and rocks.
On Saturday in Portland, hundreds of angry protesters formed a mob, chanting, Every city, every town, burn the f***ing precinct down. They also displayed a guillotine with a teddy bear representing Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.
These actions dont merely represent protests run amok America is now in the midst of a left-wing revolution. It might involve only a small fraction of the populace, but its a revolution nonetheless.
Rather than strongly condemn the anarchy and chaos in cities across the country, members of the Democratic Party which, remember, runs most of the cities suffering from the riots are shamelessly trying to take advantage of this madness and stoke fears over the election that could eventually tear the country apart.
Over the past few weeks, Democrats have repeatedly perpetuated the myth that President Trump is attempting to steal the election and suppress the vote by engaging in voter intimidation and handicapping the Postal Service so that millions of votes will be lost or not turned in on time.
Not only are these accusations completely baseless, but Democrats have used dangerous rhetoric while making their unfounded claims, spurring hostilities in a country already suffering from widespread violence and fear.
For example, the mob violence against Sen. Paul occurring on Thursday came just days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called President Trump and Republicans in Congress enemies of the state.
Pelosi also alleged Republicans are domestic enemies to our voting system and our honoring of the Constitution.
On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton suggested that Joe Biden refuse to concede on election night if the results show that he has lost, because, according to Clinton, Republicans are going to rig the election by messing up absentee balloting and scaring voters.
Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances, Clinton said. Because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win, if we dont give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is.
During his Democratic Convention speech, Biden said that democracy is on the ballot, and that Trump has cloaked America in darkness for much too long.
When coupled with the rioting and violence that has been occurring for months, these radical claims made by Pelosi, Clinton and Biden are not only reckless, they are incredibly dangerous.
If thousands of people are already willing to burn down police stations, attack law enforcement officers and members of Congress, beat and murder innocent bystanders and business owners and take over parts of large cities in defiance of the law and common decency, what will they do when enemies of the state allegedly steal the 2020 election?
If Donald Trump wins and the race is not a total blowout, theres a good chance there will be more chaos, looting, rioting, destruction of property and yes, even killing. There will be more division than ever. There will be more businesses, property and dreams burned to the ground. Tens of thousands more people will flee cities for the safety of Americas Heartland. More families will be afraid to leave their homes.
And Democrats like Pelosi, Clinton and Biden ought to share in the blame. Their absurd accusations and fearmongering, along with their unwillingness to strongly and consistently condemn the riots that have been occurring for months, have helped to turn America into a tinderbox. Lets hope they arent allowed to light a match on election night.
Democrats have a death wish that must be granted
many of the democrats are pawns to the
who wants Dead LEO, Dead USA, and
gets NO opposition -— as uses US
taxpayer money against the USA.
Yes and yes.
Dems will do whatever they think results in power for them. And there are no limits.
It is a revolution and we need military tribunals and hangings.
I think they are all about scorched earth if they lose. The problem is that few people really have the stomach for it. I’ve watched live feeds of some of the marches. I’ve noticed that most of them are just bored young people, with all their normal avenues of entertainment closed down, looking for something fun to do at night. So they do the march thing as a sort of fun thing.
Then there are the guys in the crowd desperately trying to fire them up. They are the ones that should be arrested.
Not thought out (i.e., the Left's axiom of having a "good intention") and often over-reached, what they do is always deliberate.
The rioters seem to be following Mao’s 3 steps for a communist revolution.
“The rioters seem to be following Maos 3 steps for a communist revolution.”
I think elements of our government are involved.
It is purposeful, planned and executed.................
The New York Post posted an excellent article on mail-based election fraud.
Will Biden and others ignore a leading mail election fraud expert?
It is the deliberate plan. Presidential candidate Kamala Harris spilled the beans on the air to Steve Colbert.
Der Sturmabteilungen arbeiten.
And that means ...treason.
None of this ends well.
No doubt about it. At all levels of government.
Absolutely they are. Not to mention their billionaire supporters like George Soros. We know who they are and yet the DOJ stands idly by and let's it happen. So, lets be honest, BOTH sides are letting it happen.
They are but they are creating blowback they did not expect.
28 Aug: KTEN: Top US general tells Congress the military won’t play a role in the 2020 election
By Ryan Browne, CNN
America’s most senior general, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, told members of Congress that the military will not play a role in November’s election and won’t help settle any disputes if the results are contested.
“The Constitution and laws of the US and the states establish procedures for carrying out elections, and for resolving disputes over the outcome of elections ... I do not see the US military as part of this process,” Milley said in a letter released on Friday responding to questions from two members of the House Armed Services Committee.
“In the event of a dispute over some aspect of the elections, by law U.S. courts and the U.S. Congress are required to resolve any disputes, not the U.S. Military,” Milley added...
Milley’s answers came in response to questions from Democratic Reps. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan and Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey following a July hearing of the Armed Services Committee...
Concern that Trump may not vacate the presidency after losing an election drove two well-known retired military officers, John Nagl and Paul Yingling, to pen an open letter to Milley, calling on him to get involved in resolving a contested aftermath...
20 Aug: World Socialist Web Site: The CIA Democrats in the 2020 elections
By Patrick Martin
In 2020, the intervention of the CIA Democrats continues on what is arguably an equally significant scale: besides the reelection campaigns of the 11 representatives who won seats in the House in 2018, half a dozen of those who lost 2018 races are running again in 2020. Some of these are running for House seats again, while others have been promoted by the Democratic Party leadership and are running for the US Senate. And an entire new crop of military-intelligence operatives is being brought forward, some running for Republican seats targeted by the Democratic leadership as possible takeovers, others in seats not currently considered competitive...
The bottom line: at least 34 Democratic candidates for the House of Representatives have a primarily military-intelligence background, up from 30 in 2018, as well as three of the partys 35 candidates for the US Senate, compared to zero in 2018. For each branch of Congress, this represents about 10 percent of the total...
All 11 CIA Democrats first elected in 2018 are running for reelection. Five are considered prohibitive favorites to win: Mikie Sherrill in New Jersey, Chrissy Houlahan and Connor Lamb in Pennsylvania, Elissa Slotkin in Michigan, and Jason Crow in Colorado. The remaining six are in competitive races: Jared Golden in Maine, Max Rose in New York, Tom Malinowski and Andy Kim in New Jersey, Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria in Virginia...
From a fundraising standpoint, the most reliable indicator of successand ruling class supportin American legislative contests, the 11 CIA Democrats must be considered overwhelming favorites to retain their seats...
Let us recall briefly who these 11 representatives are and their military-intelligence background:
Mikie Sherrill, New Jerseys 11th Congressional District: Navy helicopter pilot, with 10 years active service in Europe and the Middle East.
Elissa Slotkin, Michigans 8th Congressional District: CIA agent with three tours in Iraq, National Security Council for both Bush and Obama, assistant to Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte, then principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs.
Abigail Spanberger, Virginias 7th Congressional District: CIA operations officer stationed in Europe for nearly a decade...
In their first two years in Congress, the CIA Democrats carried out two significant common actions. The five womenHoulahan, Luria, Sherrill, Slotkin and Spanbergerformed a joint fundraising committee to promote female candidates who shared their military-intelligence background. And six of themCrow and the five womenco-signed an op-ed in the Washington Post in September 2019 calling for an impeachment probe into President Trumps dealing with Ukraine. This was a crucial turning point in the effort that culminated in Trumps impeachment three months later...

1 Jul: NYT: Slotkin, Former Intelligence Briefer, Presses White House on Russia Reports
The experience of Representative Elissa Slotkin as an intelligence official told her there was something very unusual in the way the White House handled disturbing reports on Russia.
By Emily Cochrane
Democratic leaders have capitalized on Ms. Slotkins expertise, along with that of Representatives Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, a former C.I.A. operations officer, and Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, a former Navy helicopter pilot, putting them out front as they raise questions about the intelligence and Mr. Trumps handling of it. The three freshmen were chosen to accompany senior Democrats to a classified briefing at the White House on Tuesday...
