    The City of Seattle has long been a laboratory for the radical Left. Activists experiment with concepts, language, techniques, and policies that eventually appear in other cities. For this reason, Seattle law enforcement often gets early insight into the evolving tactics of left-wing street protesters. The city’s officers have had decades of experience dealing with Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and anarchist movements, which culminated in the George Floyd riots of 2020. To understand the latest chaos at American universities, I spoke with Christopher Young, who served as an officer and detective for the Seattle Police Department, including working undercover for...
  • America Is Headed For A Civil War… Maybe

    The 19th-century Prussian general Karl Von Clausewitz famously said: “War is not an independent phenomenon, but the continuation of politics by different means.” Or as we more often hear it, “War is but politics by different means.” Some predict that America is on the verge of a hot war. But while it’s true that our country is more divided than ever, it may not be as divided as the pro-Hamas, anti-American protesters hope. War is what generally happens when two (or more) sides get to a point where they can no longer peacefully coexist with the current circumstances. America seems...

    “We’ll certainly never forget the dark days of June 6– January 6th, excuse me.” — President “Joe Biden”. The plum blossoms are ready to pop here. You can feel your blood rising. The evening sun lingers a little longer every day. Normally you’d celebrate, but not this year of roaring portents and evil juju. History doesn’t stop to catch its breath for a moment. The tiny glowing diode deep in “Joe Biden’s” brain dims a bit more each day (pause) while low men and women in high places trifle with the fate of the nation. Everyone dreads what’s coming. Which,...

    Violence and crime are already completely out of control all over the United States. In fact, you definitely wouldn’t want to be caught in the streets when hordes of our lawless young people are running wild. If things are this bad already, what is going to happen if the election in November does not go the way that leaders on the left want and they give the green light to millions of radicals to cause widespread chaos all over America? I think that we got a small preview of what this could look like during the riots of 2020. Unfortunately,...

    The chair of the Minnesota Freedom Fund board was arrested late last month for fentanyl possession. The Bloomington Police Department confirmed with Alpha News that Valentina McKenzie was arrested Aug. 31 at 78th Street East and 12th Avenue East at 10:35 p.m. “She was booked and released from our jail pending out of custody charges,” said Deputy Chief Kimberly Clauson.

No charges...

Dave agrees with folks like Alan Sabrosky that the nihilists of what passes for the left are far more extreme and dangerous than Trump’s deplorables and J6ers. He also agrees with “Doc” Sabrosky that the US is inching toward civil war.

    The embassy further warned that the U.S. government could only offer "extremely limited" assistance and that remaining government personnel were prohibited from leaving the area around the embassy. The U.S. State Department ordered all government personnel to evacuate the Caribbean nation of Haiti amid a significant rise in gang violence and domestic turmoil. The embassy in Port-au-Prince announced a "Do Not Travel" order, citing heightened risk of kidnapping. Non-emergency government personnel were also ordered to leave the country. "Do not travel to Haiti due to kidnapping, crime, civil unrest, and poor health care infrastructure," the warning reads. "On July 27,...

    In preparation for my immigration debate tomorrow, I have thought to study up on the recent riots that rocked the country of France from late June through the first two weeks of July. These riots present an object lesson in what can happen in the event of large-scale immigration of an insular group that assimilates slowly into the host population and is culturally very different. Although these riots have certainly been mentioned in the American press, they have mostly either been intentionally downplayed or kept out of the main headlines here by such things as the Supreme Court decisions of...

    As the U.S. deals with the consequences of mass immigration, important lessons can be learned from our oldest European ally. Over the past few weeks, France has been engulfed in riots after a 17-year-old boy was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop. The rioting and looting have largely been centered in communities with many migrants from North African and Islamic nations. The rioting has caused more than one billion dollars in property damage, and has led to thousands of arrests. It has also led to a renewed debate in Europe about the costs of mass...

    In an appearance at the French National Assembly, Minister of the Interior Gerard Darmanin insisted that “only 10%” of the rioters were “foreign,” while 90% were “French citizens.” That may be true, but those 90% were French citizens only on their identity cards. By their mental makeup, they were still the Muslim migrants whom their fathers and grandfathers had been. They still refused, as citizens, to integrate into French society, still tried to milk the French welfare state of every conceivable benefit – free housing, free medical care, free education, unemployment benefits, family allowances, and more – that it offered....

    For the most part, the American media aren’t much interested in the riots consuming France. But since images of burning cars and buildings are too dramatic to ignore, and because it is the height of the tourist season in a European destination favored by American travelers, they have had to acknowledge them now and then. Mostly, the death of a youth at the hands of police is cited as the cause, and comparisons are drawn to the George Floyd riots that began in Minneapolis and spread throughout our country. More sophisticated American commentators mentioned the word “jihad,” acknowledging what the...

    French authorities have estimated that rioters have burned or looted more than 1,100 public and private buildings over the past week in their violent response to a police shooting involving a 17-year-old French citizen of Algerian descent. On Wednesday, a French news outlet reported that, according to the country’s Ministry of the Interior, roughly 1,105 buildings including police stations, town halls, and schools have been assaulted since riots began on June 27. French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire told a CNN affiliate that more than 1,000 businesses have been “vandalised, attacked or set on fire.” The damages are estimated to...

    Paris and other French cities resemble war zones, with burnt homes and streets littered with charred cars, as the nation reels under the sixth night of violence triggered by last week’s police shooting that killed a 17-year-old boy of Algerian descent. “In just six nights, over 5000 vehicles were set on fire, whereas around 3300 persons were arrested, according to a report from the Ministry of Interior on Monday,” French newspaper Le Parisien reported. Rioters damaged more than 1,000 buildings, the daily added. According to the French newspaper Le Figaro, “police and gendarmes are paying a heavy price, with 700...

The riots began in Paris and its suburbs but have spread to other cities and towns across the country. The violent protests also spread to French-speaking areas in Switzerland and Belgium, according to The Telegraph.
