Suspect Identified In Portland Murder

Featured image The Oregonian reports that a suspect has been identified in the murder Sunday night of Aaron Danielson, a Donald Trump supporter, in Portland: A 48-year-old man who was accused of carrying a loaded gun at an earlier downtown Portland protest is under investigation in the fatal shooting Saturday night of a right-wing demonstrator after a pro-Trump rally. Michael Forest Reinoehl calls himself an anti-fascist and has posted videos and photos »

Don’t Let the Mob Win

Featured image That is the theme of this nuclear ad by Tom Cotton, which is going live in Minnesota and Wisconsin tonight. The violent mobs of Antifa and BLM need to be hung around the neck of the Democratic Party, and this ad goes a long way toward that end: 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨 NEW Tom Cotton ad going live in Wisconsin and Minnesota tonight — Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) August 30, 2020 Note, too, »

Trump Supporter Murdered In Portland

Featured image Violence in Portland escalated late last night as a Trump supporter was shot and killed, presumably by BLM/Antifa leftists. Portland’s left-wing newspaper, the Oregonian, reports the bare facts and pretty much takes the position that the man who was murdered had it coming. That certainly is what the leftists on the scene think. Via InstaPundit: On the 95th night of riots and violent protests in Portland, a conservative rally attendee »

A new Power Line record

Featured image Until this weekend, my 2004 post “The sixty-first minute” was the most read item in our 18-year history. Flagged with a screaming siren on the Drudge Report early in the afternoon of September 9 that year, it was historic in a number of respects. It may even have affected the outcome of the 2004 election and saved us from a John Kerry presidency. Writing from memory, I think it had »

Antifa Is Evil

Featured image Portland is a dead city, a nightmarish dystopia ruled by criminals associated with Antifa and Black Lives Matter. (Is there still a distinction between those groups? They seem effectively to have merged.) We are all indebted to Andy Ngo for documenting the depths to which Portland has descended. Here, Antifa/BLM criminals viciously assault a man who was driving a truck, finally kicking him in the head, knocking him unconscious and »

Antifa Goes to Sturgis

Featured image Earlier today, a handful of Antifa goofs decided to take their anti-American shtick to the annual biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. If this sounds like a bad idea to you, you are right. Actually, the bikers were commendably well-behaved. Sturgis is a fun, feel-good event, and it would take more than a few fascists to put the bikers in a seriously bad mood. Still, a scuffle broke out at »

WWE does Antifa

Featured image When I was between the ages of 10 and 14, I used to watch professional wrestling regularly. It was always easy to spot the villains. Sometimes you could even tell them from their names. If a wrestler had a German name, a Japanese name, or a Russian name, he was a villain. If a wrestler wore a hood or mask, that was another reliable sign. Wrestling villainy must keep up »

Burning Bibles In Portland

Featured image Totalitarians hate religion because in their view, there can be nothing higher than the state. American totalitarians particularly hate Christians and Jews. Thus, we see Antifa burning Bibles in Portland: Public gatherings to burn Bibles: OK Public gatherings to read Bibles: BANNED — Razor (@hale_razor) August 1, 2020 The Democrats are committed to the view that Portland’s protests are peaceful and, as far as we can judge from their »

Who Is Behind the Anti-Police Campaign?

Featured image America’s police forces are under attack, in part by “peaceful protesters” in various cities. The Democrats and their media arm have done their best to domesticate the anti-law enforcement movement, and to make it seem almost normal. This despite the fact that those who call for defunding or disbanding police forces are a tiny minority. Here in Minnesota, my organization’s polling finds that 85% of Minnesotans support their local police. »

Essential Fleccas reports

Featured image Essential Fleccas caught up with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler for a quick interview on the Portland riots. Nadler responded it’s all a myth. By the evidence of the video, however, news of Nadler’s stomach reduction surgery is a myth and he needs to shelter in place to protect himself from the epidemic. The Portland riots — who doesn’t know they’re the real thing? If Nadler’s news intake is »

Long Prison Terms Needed

Featured image It is hard to see how the city of Portland can ever recover from the violence that has been unleashed by Antifa, with the connivance of local officials. One is tempted to say that Portland’s voters have brought it on themselves and are getting what they deserve–good and hard, as Mencken put it. Unfortunately, they aren’t the principal victims of the violence. Federal agents came under vicious attack while trying »

Portland’s Confederates

Featured image Tom Cotton made liberal heads explode when he analogized Portland’s criminal Antifa to Confederates of the 1860s: The federal government cannot allow anarchists and insurrectionists to destroy federal courthouses, federal buildings, or other federal property. These insurrectionists in the streets of Portland are little different from the insurrectionists who seceded from the Union in 1861 in South Carolina and tried to take over Fort Sumter. And just like President Lincoln »

Churches Under Attack

Featured image There has been a rash of arson and vandalism directed against European churches, most notably in France. The London Times reports: Recent incidents have included a fire in Saint-Sulpice church in Paris, human excrement smeared on the wall in Notre-Dame-des-Enfants church in Nîmes, southern France, and vandalism of the organ at Saint-Denis basilica outside Paris, where all but three of France’s kings are buried. *** Figures released by French police »

Portland Fights for the Title

Featured image I suggested a week ago that Minneapolis might have surpassed Portland in the race for the title of America’s Worst-Governed City. That apparently spurred Portland residents to redouble their efforts, and today that city stands unchallenged as America’s worst. Consider that Portland has now experienced 51 consecutive days of violent riots. Minneapolis had, what? Six? Last night violent mobs under the banners of Antifa and Black Lives Matter attacked the »

Is “Wokism” Systemically Racist?

Featured image A flippant response might be, since pretty much everything else is these days, why not? More seriously, there is a good argument that wokism implies a contemptuous, paternalistic attitude toward minorities, especially blacks. And many have noticed that you see a lot more African-Americans in the ranks of the police than in Antifa. This short video by a black police officer makes the point tellingly: Portland Police Officer Jackson Speaks »

Trump: “We were going in and would have taken the CHOP”

Featured image In an interview broadcast last night on Sean Hannity’s program, President Trump said he was about to send in forces to take back the area in Seattle known as CHOP. Hannity asked: I had a source that told me, I was not able to confirm it, that one of the reasons that the Seattle mayor finally acted is that they were given notice that if they didn’t act that you »

Live from Seattle

Featured image The authorities in Seattle have surrendered a part of the city to Antifa thugs and louts. Christopher Rufo reports for City Journal: Seattle’s hard-Left secessionist movement has claimed its first territory: six blocks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. For the past week, Black Lives Matter and Antifa-affiliated activists have engaged in a pitched battle with Seattle police officers and National Guard soldiers in the neighborhood, with the heaviest conflict occurring »
