    Antifa defines themselves as anti-fascists who focus on “promotional, informative and practical ways of struggle against all authoritarian ideologies.” Antifa is recognized as a “Violent Political Social Experiment” with an emphasis on ‘Violent.’ Remember, every TEA Party gathering was peaceful but the fascists went after them. But every Antifa gathering turns violent and bloody! Yesterday during a small protest against Antifa Laura Kealiher, mother of deceased Antifa militant Sean Kealiher, got into a fight with a Trump supporter. Sean was killed last year in mysterious circumstances outside Antifa pub, Cider Riot. Authorities said that they found evidence of gunfire in...

    Feb. 14 (UPI) -- A Maine woman who lost her then-boyfriend's class ring in 1973 was reunited with the precious item after it was found buried in a park in Finland. Debra McKenna, 63, said her then-boyfriend, Shawn, gave her the Morse High School ring before he headed to college in 1973 and she accidentally left it in a bathroom at the Porteous, Mitchell & Braun Co. department store in Portland only a few months later. McKenna and Shawn married in 1977 and remained together until he died in 2017 after a long fight with cancer. The woman said the...

    The far-left Antifa group is clearly the enemy of this constitutional republic. They thrive on violence and hatred, destruction. They are not American’s. The bottom line is- No civilized nation on earth should have to put up with terror groups like “Antifa.” Yesterday they “protested” again in Portland. Awakening from their winter hibernation, the Antifa terrorists who run the streets of Portland have resumed their well-reputed antics. Evidently a literal KKK rally was to take place in the city today, which the organizers had canceled by morning. This didn’t stop the throngs of masked Antifa, who showed up anyway to...

    A man was standing among Antifa members in Portland when they were seen harassing and subtly attacking him to get him to leave. It remains unknown what provoked this attack as we do not know what happened before the film was rolling.

    Domestic terrorist group Antifa doesn’t like independent journalist Brandon Brown. Even with other journalists and Portland police watching, they attacked Brown for the second time in two months, this time hitting him in the face with “bear spray,” a form of mace intended to hurt and blind attacking bears. Video recorded by antifa writer Shane Burley shows the mob harassing, assaulting & pepper spraying local citizen journalist Brandon Brown. Brown was attacked & robbed by antifa militants for recording them in Olympia, Wash. in December.— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) February 8, 2020

    An ANTIFA activist died this weekend after he was run down by a motor vehicle outside of a popular far-left hangout in Portland, OR. Sean D. Kealiher, 23, was struck by an SUV during a deadly confrontation outside of the Cider Riot bar, which is a centralized hub of sorts for the city’s violent left-wing extremists. The vehicle was reportedly hailed with gunfire after it hit Kealiher, and then crashed into a nearby building. Kealiher ultimately died of blunt-force trauma after being driven to a hospital where he could not be resuscitated. No arrests have been made at the present...
  • Portland antifa ‘martyr’ mourned by many urged terrorist attacks, writings reveal

    Last October, a well-known Portland antifa militant was killed under mysterious circumstances after leaving a pub popular with far-left extremists. Sean Daniel Kealiher, 23, was killed near the Cider Riot pub after being hit by a car that had been fired upon with live rounds. His friends dragged his body away and did not call the police. Kealiher’s death immediately rippled throughout Portland and beyond, leading both the far-left and even establishment Democrat leaders to mourn publicly. A GoFundMe for his funeral raised thousands. And while he was lionized in the press as a murdered “anti-fascist activist” and even called...

    The union that handles every shipping container that crosses West Coast docks is bracing for bankruptcy. It’s a rare prospect for a bargaining group, and it’s rattling organized labor nationally. (snip) But a $94-million federal jury award Nov. 4 to ICTSI Oregon Inc., a cargo terminal operator, has forced union leaders to warn that a filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection may be ahead.(snip) A Chapter 11 filing would force the union to disclose details of its finances and operations, a disagreeable prospect for an intensely private organization.

    New Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot took office in May facing major worries, among them the city’s woefully underfunded pensions, a projected $800 million budget deficit, and one of America’s highest large-city crime rates. Yet one of her first moves as mayor was to appoint . . . a chief equity officer. In her view, all of Chicago’s woes are smaller than its bigger one: it is “two cities,” where racial outcomes differ dramatically. The equity job’s purpose, as a local paper described the cabinet position, was to lead local government in “uprooting . . . inequity in just about every...

    “The goal is ensuring the green economy benefits folks who are hurt first and worst by global warming,” says Oriana Magnera. In just a few months, the city of Portland will begin investing the proceeds from a groundbreaking new tax on large companies. No other city in the U.S. has such a tax. The Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund, or PCEF, will raise as much as $60 million a year from a new tax on big retailers. The money is supposed to supply clean, efficient energy and jobs to people the city has long slighted. The overarching goals:...

    A Portland U.S. Bank employee said she was fired after giving $20 of her own money to a customer who was broke and stranded at a gas station on Christmas Eve. The man she helped called her firing “ridiculous.” “I was a customer of U.S. Bank, I needed help, and she went above and beyond,” said Marc Eugenio of Clackamas. “I felt so bad. She was the only one helping me.” On Dec. 23, Emily James, a senior banker at a U.S. Bank call center in Portland, said she spent more than an hour trying to help Eugenio, a bank...

    For nearly 40 years, American students have been taught about their country’s history with communist disinformation by a historian who was a onetime Communist Party U.S.A. member and a lifelong promoter of communism. This is Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, which has sold over 2.6 million copies since its publication in 1980. It is the textbook of choice for Advanced Placement U.S. history courses in high schools, is used in college history and education courses, is packaged into free, downloadable lessons for K-12 teachers by the Zinn Education Project, is quoted extensively in school books, and...

    Referring to it with happy little buzzwords such as “climate justice,” the city of Portland will soon be implementing the first (and hopefully only) “green new deal” carbon tax in the nation, which city “leaders” estimate will suck $60 million out of the economy. The money will allegedly be going toward “creating” “green energy” jobs. They say the tax will only affect The Evil Corporations™ specifically referring to Walmart.

    Politicians bemoan the lack of affordable housing, but their policies often create the problem. Look no further than Oregon, where restrictive zoning and mandates have yielded the lowest rate of residential construction in decades. Oregon’s population grew by nearly 400,000 between 2010 and 2019. But the state added a mere 37 housing permits for every 100 new residents, according to a report released last week by the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis. Economist Josh Lehner found that “while much of the attention is paid to rising housing costs, we know they are the symptom and not the cause of the...

    A Portland woman is being charged for allegedly attacking a Muslim foreign exchange student and desecrating her hijab. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said on November 12, 2019, the 24-year-old Portland State University student from Saudi Arabia was at a TriMet MAX station on Yamhill Street in Portland. Court documents state 23-year-old Jasmine Renee Campbell approached the student from behind and grabbed her hijab. Campbell then allegedly tried to choke the victim, who was able to push herself away. Prosecutors said Campbell then “forcibly” took the victim’s hijab and rubbed it across “multiple exposed sexually intimate parts of...

    The city of brotherly love has a new police commissioner in Danielle Outlaw. If her name doesn’t sound familiar, she was the police chief for Portland. It marks a first in the city’s history: a black female police chief. Outlaw is tapped for the job at a time when the city is experiencing an uptick in violent crime. According to the numbers crunched by the Philadelphia Inquirer, homicides and shootings spiked in 2019. The city was left with 351 murders this year. In all, violent crime reached its worse levels in nearly a decade. According to reports, the hiring process...

    Philadelphia’s new police commissioner is aware of what she represents in being the first black woman named to head the force. But she said she was also the first black woman to do the last job she held, and for a long time, “it was a distraction.” “I’ve been a black woman all my life, and I’ve chosen the career of law enforcement," said Danielle Outlaw, the Portland, Ore., police chief named Monday to lead the Philadelphia Police Department. She added: “I do not take lightly the fact that I am the first here … I understand who opened doors...

    Police Chief Danielle Outlaw has accepted a job to become Philadelphia’s police commissioner after only two years and two months leading Portland’s 1,000-member force during a time of mass political protests and community mistrust. But Outlaw said she’s ready to jump into leading Philadelphia’s troubled police department. She was chosen out of 31 candidates, including 18 from within the department. She starts Feb. 10. “While I am new to Philadelphia, I am not new to the challenges of big-city, 21st century policing," she said before she was introduced to her new city at an afternoon news conference at Philadelphia City...

    Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings. (KATU News) The obvious questions are already being raised....

    This past June, masked thugs organized under the banner of anti-fascism, or "antifa," and beat up conservative journalist Andy Ngo and others in Portland, Ore. In one particularly gruesome attack, local conservative Adam Kelly got his head busted open with a baton. He suffered a concussion and needed 25 staples to close the wounds. Gage Halupowski, the 24-year-old man who pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in the attack, was sentenced to 70 months (5.83 years) in prison on Friday.
