    ... Trump has called for Antifa — a loose organization of far-left radicals who often use anarchist tactics in their fight against what they see as fascism creeping into every corner of society — to be labeled a terrorist organization. To better understand who’s actually participating in the Portland riots and protests, National Review reached out to demonstrators who were arrested during a two-week period in late August and early September, and combed through dozens of their social media profiles. The findings: People participating in the riots are not all Antifa members, though there clearly are Antifa supporters in their...

    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 (King James Version) President Trump set the table by winning the final debate so now it is up to you to feast on those voters ready to be harvested. This is the perfect storm to make Hillary 2.0 as everything is the same for the District of Corruption and it will be that much sweeter as the Beltway threw everything they could and still will came up short. It will be as if America no longer loves the Three Pillars...

    The Japanese government is planning on releasing millions of gallons of contaminated water into the ocean starting in 2022, according to international news reports. “170 tons of new radioactive wastewater is generated each day [at Fukushima] and is stored in 1,000 specially designed tanks,” Forbes reports. The government would begin to release the contaminated water into the ocean when the tanks being used to store it reach capacity. The final decision about whether or not to implement the plan is expected to be announced by November. The water is being treated to “reduce radioactivity,

    A bizarre investigative piece published by 9NEWS, the NBC affiliate that reportedly hired the unlicensed security guard who fatally shot a Trump supporter during a Denver "Patriot Rally," exposes the news station for contracting multiple unlicensed security guards.. An investigation self-run by the publication found that 30-year-old Matthew Dolloff—who is facing second-degree murder charges for the alleged killing of a conservative demonstrator during dueling Denver rallies on Saturday—is not the only non-credentialed security guard to accompany 9NEWS crews at riots during the past five months. In fact, Dolloff is one of five unlicensed security agents. Under a taunting "Training Matters"...

    The cities of Portland and Oakland filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday, accusing the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security of unconstitutionally taking over law enforcement responsibilities in the two cities under policies implemented after President Trump signed an executive order to protect federal monuments in June. The cities sued the departments' leaders, Attorney General William Barr and Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf, in their official capacities as well and asked the judge to forbid the federal agencies of sending officers to the cities. The 48-page lawsuit was filed in federal court in California.Among the allegations, the cities said the federal government's policies...

    Democrat mayors and city councils have surrendered America’s largest cities to “domestic terrorists,” said Howard Safir, former New York City police commissioner and fire commissioner, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Safir said, “It’s the Democratic cities who have basically ceded their cities to what got called ‘peaceful protesters’ but are really people who are vandals and looters, and in some cases, not only assault people but are murderers.” Safir added, “You look at Seattle, you look at Minneapolis, you look at Chicago, and places like that where basically they have...

    President Trump called on federal law enforcement to target the “Radical Left” and Antifa after rioters in Portland on Sunday evening toppled statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt during “day of rage” protests over the Christopher Columbus holiday. “The FBI and Law Enforcement must focus their energy on ANTIFA and the Radical Left, those who have spent the summer trying to burn down poorly run Democrat Cities throughout the USA!,” the president wrote in a string of tweets Monday after the “indigenous peoples day of rage,” organized by a faction of Antifa. “Taking advantage of fools.

    A group of protesters toppled statues of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln in Portland’s South Park Block late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing windows and engaging in other acts of destruction. Police declared the event a riot and ordered people in the area to disperse but did not directly intervene until nearly an hour after the first statue fell. The crowd scattered when police cruisers flooded the area, and officers appeared to make several arrests. Protest organizers had promoted the event on social media as an “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.” Monday is the...

    There was a brief pause in the nightly protests/riots taking place in Portland last month because wildfires had rendered the air hazardous. Even so, police made more than 200 arrests last month. But as expected, nearly all of those arrested have already had the charges against them dropped: Officers with the Portland Police Bureau, as well as Oregon State Police, made 213 arrests in September, according to a KOIN 6 News database compiled from press releases and direct inquiries. That’s a decrease from August, which had a record 295 arrests…As in August, interfering with a peace officer was the...

    An Oregon State University professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies has alleged “white Christians” are to blame for West Coast wildfires because of their “denial of climate science.” As revealed by the attentive folks at Campus Reform in an October 2 essay, Prof. Susan Shaw has insisted that “the West is burning while most white Christians turn away from the root causes of the devastation.” Shaw writes that “the intensity and scope of these fires are a result of climate change” and its spread is due to the fact that “many Christians, especially white Christians, have embraced denial of...

    Prosecutors in Portland, Oregon, have dismissed charges on 90 percent of the protesters arrested during Antifa and anti-police riots in September. One had also been charged with attempted murder, assault, and arson. Of the 213 arrested that month, only cases for 19 are pending. In addition to dropping 9 out of every 10 cases in September, authorities dismissed more than 70 percent of the almost 1,000 arrests since May, a case tracker kept by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office revealed. The figure is worsened by reports from The Oregonian that more cases have been dismissed than those shown on...

    You know you're in Portland when the current mayor who has chased out countless businesses and allowed Antifa and BLM terrorists to destroy the city on a nightly basis for over four months straight is somehow not far enough to the left to appease the voter base. National laughingstock Ted Wheeler is now trailing in the polls for his re-election. But not against a candidate that promises to crack down on the rioters, promote businesses, and actually fix the roads. No, of course not. He's losing to a candidate that's even further to the left than he is. Plucky upstart...
