They might have told too much truth -

European liberals have demanded that Brussels “stop funding” countries in the EU which stand up to globalism.

The Renew Europe Group, the successor to the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) in the EU Parliament, blasted “ignorant” and “arrogant” populist governments in eastern and central European nations, who “do not wish to be bothered by [Brussels’] ‘cultural Marxism'”.

George, it is under the Trump administration and Republican leadership that the country will assume at least an 8 TRILLION $ increase to our national debt. That's in four years. Are you going to try to blame the Dems for that? The Repubs controlled the senate all four years as well as the Presidency and the House for two of the four years. That debt is the result of Republican leadership George there is no way you can blame the Dems.

Paul (the miser) Emery 8:13 - "That debt is the result of Republican leadership George there is no way you can blame the Dems."
Nope - no way in hell.
The Dems vote for that debt because Trump's henchmen grab them and physically force them to vote for this.
And in Cali it's still all the R's fault even though they they don't control anything.
So - according to Paul the R's are responsible for everything bad no matter whether they are in power or not.
And when the Dems are back in the driver's seat in DC and the debt balloons even more, Paul will still blame the R's.

I would reply that I don't now (and will never) need them to 'validate' my thoughts or my feelings.

Boy, did you confuse me for a while, Scott. I thought the reference "Paul 8:13" was to the Pauline epistle to the Romans 8:13, but with a modern translation.

Romans 8:13: "For if you live according to the flesh (i.e. progressives), you will die; but if by the Spirit, (Trump) you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live."

I'm OK now.

Oh well, the role of the House of Representatives in budgets has escaped a lot of people. Perhaps he's just miffed that Trump hasn't given him any chance to sing antiwar protest songs in order to get that virtue rush. Fighting Eastasia is good for business.

In any case, Trump is somewhat besides the point now. The flare went up, the Left sprang into action at all levels, and the rest of the country is just wishing (in vain) for it all to go away. One of the more brilliant angles to this is the amount of corporate monopoly that is under control. Amazon takes over the commercial infrastructure of retail flyover America, and then Bezos can dictate terms. Ownership of schools is a done deal, and the scaling properties of the internet led to leftist choke points based on surveillance capitalism.

The yeoman farmer individualist types never really had a chance against people who attain status by clawing their way up large organizations.

We hope and pray that people will reflect on the existential dangers of cancel culture — the course advocated by extreme social-justice warriors and their demagogic allies is bringing our nation to the brink of a chasm.

I am so glad that President Trump set the precedent for using federal law enforcement officers from the DHS for local domestic law enforcement duties without the consultation and agreement of the local jurisdictions...a practice that based on previous statements here should be catching your hair on fire.

Now that the precedent is set, when Joe Biden is elected President and the Senate is Democratic, Biden can unleash the DHS to confiscate your guns, integrate housing in all of your neighborhoods, and force you all to wear masks.

I don't even see what the issue is.

https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/news/read.cfm?id=251010

Portland PD has been told to leave the rioters alone. Federal police are protecting federal buildings...I've seen plenty of footage and basically they let them beat on the sides, shoot fireworks, start fires, until it gets to be a bit too much and then run everyone off a block or so. Now and again they appear to get a solid ID on a particularly bad rioter and arrest them away from the crowd.

The point appears to be to guard the 20% of people doing criminal things with 80% of folks screaming obscenities. When the cops finally respond, you melt into the crowd and hope like hell to catch the slightest police misstep on camera. Everyone knows the game.

Yes, these federal police wear uniforms. No, they don't have to read anyone their rights.

Jeesh. For once come up with a reasonable point to make. You would do well to watch some of the footage that's out there and reconsider who you choose as political allies.

StevenF 116pm - according to your lights and understanding, is it correct that the federal government has neither responsibility nor requirement to intercede in the protection of life and limb in a state when local authorities have volubly and demonstrably abrogated all efforts to fulfill that most fundamental function of government?

"Steve, perhaps you didn't notice that the federal deployment occurred after the local authorities made publicly clear that they condoned such violent protests, would do nothing to stop them, and demonstrated their stated policy for some weeks now."

Neither Portland not Chicago where federal LE is now deployed sans name tags, badges, or even identification marks for their agencies, condone violence, they simply have a different method of dealing with it, which is a local decision and right. It is also inaccurate to say they have done nothing to stop the protests that have escalated to violence. The reality now is that it is the presence of federal LE that is escalating the violence and making local LE's job more difficult.

But that is OK, now that you are supporting anonymous jack booted federal thugs snatching people ff the streets...who know where it ends. Perhaps it ends with you?

Silly question George because the local LE has not "volubly and demonstrably abrogated all efforts to fulfill that most fundamental function of government."

In about a year when some federal agency crosses the line I am going to come back to these posts and point out that you guys where complete hypocrites when Trump ordered the same agencies to cross the line.

At what point did your interpretation of the Constitution and American values become a servant of your partisan political ideology?

scenes

Frisch: " federal LE is now deployed sans name tags, badges, or even identification marks for their agencies,"

lol. So they are supposed to badge them all individually from the different agencies they belong to? I expect they just had a big pile of uniforms marked 'police' in different sizes, flew the people in, and gave them clothes so that they looked alike (and different from looters/arsonists/Democrats). Basically, it's a camo version of what a SWAT team wears (also sans name tags), nothing new to see here.

I can't say I blame police for not putting on name tags when possible, given the current tendency for Biden voters to dox people, and show up at their house for a bit of mob party time. The Blue Mob can feed on wives and children as well as they can the folks they feel a 2 minute hate for.

Please, just watch the footage, I'm happy to post up links. They are being remarkably nice to the rioters compared to years past.

more Frisch: " anonymous jack booted federal thugs"

Oh please. Such drama. You are about a minute away from calling everyone a 'bootlicker' which is the epithet of choice right now.

Big Lie #2: “The reality now is that it is the presence of federal LE that is escalating the violence....”

Hmm. Since the riots started happening in Portland in late March, not a single day or night has gone by without riots, mayhem, smashing windows (public and private) busting up things and setting them on fire. Not to mention all the projectiles hurled at local police, and even ambushes of cops.

First, it was six straight weeks. Then 47, 49 days. Then 51 straight nights of looting and attacks (yes, attacks) on police and even innocent lawful bystanders...not to mention torching the Police Union Hall and attacking a couple of police precincts. Remember the movie Fort Bronx? Then, around Day 51 or 52, Homeland Security (Trump) stepped in with hardened Border Patrol or ICE agents and detained criminals. Unless, of course, you equate rioting, violence, and destroying property as part of peaceful protesting. Don’t fit my definition of lawful and peaceful assembly. Not even in the same universe.

So, kindly explain to this thick headed one how Trump sending in the federales on day 51 or so escalate the riots that were happening on a daily basis for over 7 weeks? And during that period, did things get better in Portlandia (and the other city flying under the radar; Chicago) or have things gotten worse? Federales escalating violence? That’s a good one. So, if the G-Men pull out, things will return to normal...which was friggin intolerable? Let’s go back to Days 6-39?

re SteveF 150pm - "Silly question George because the local LE has not "volubly and demonstrably abrogated all efforts to fulfill that most fundamental function of government.""

Well, this retort confirms once again that we live in different universes and/or one in which the lamestream shows now videos of local authorities doing exactly that, and local LE now shown cowering in the distance, knowing that however they confront the rioters, their actions will not be supported by their electeds, and they more than likely will be terminated or prosecuted. Progressives like Mr Frisch are oblivious to all this and outraged by the evidence that floods a good part of our media daily.

re: Fish@6:41pm

There's a pretty good press conference by DHS guys that I watched talking about the different agencies (four I believe) and the exact uniforms everyone is wearing.

They did say that names are left off the uniforms due to the problem of doxing and people (ie. not Republicans) showing up at your house to kill your dog and children, so that was an explicit decision.

In other news, one of those odd things:

‘WATCH: Rioters Attack Federal Law Enforcement Official Who Was On The Ground’

“Extremists in Portland that the Department of Homeland Security describes as “violent anarchists” attacked a federal law enforcement official who ended up on the ground on Monday night as the city has now endured more than 50 days of continued violence.

The attack came as federal agents guarded a federal courthouse that rioters have repeatedly tried to destroy.“

scenes

" I will dedicate this measly incident to Steve, the keeper of the truth."

It's a thing I wonder about, does he really believe the stuff he says?

So, on day 45 or so of continuous riots, the feds send 145+/- federal police, in their normal uniforms it turns out (largely Border Patrol) complete with badges...but minus last names...to protect four federal buildings. Basically they let the outside get set on fire, rocks thrown, windows broken to set fires, largish fireworks, lasers, usually until some decisions is made to clear the miscreants out. Tear gas and clear the block, go inside, arrest a few of the most heinous folks.

Steve: NAZI BASTARD COPS CONSTITUTION BLARGH BOOTLICKER BROWNSHIRTS BLECH!!!!!

It's not an uncommon mode of thinking. Either it's Trumphate uber alles (ends justify the means doncha know) or perhaps simply the result of watching a handful of news programs that show the mommies out front during the day and some threatening pictures of guys in SWAT team gear with a few gas grenade launchers (or 'assault rifles' as they're known as I've seen on some twitter feeds).

The only way to get a flavor of the thing is to skip through some of the 6 hour video montages of the Portland festivities, but that would require a bit of work.

I'm afraid that some of our countrymen have lost the ability to think rationally.

scenes

...as a side note, it's interesting that the cops are having to go the route of Mexican cops in terms of identity protection, walling themselves up in strong points, only work in force.

Really, it's a pretty analogous situation to the situation there with the BLM/Antifa folks taking the place of drug cartels. They have influence in government, are happy to go to a policeman's house to kill his dog, are well funded, increasingly well organized, know how to treat traitors to the cause, a certain amount of popular support, know how to hide real intentions and methods.

There probably are lessons to be learned from the situation down there.

Bill Tozer

Scenes: Side note (sidebar?)

A favorite tactic of the cartel is to send a police chief or judge or legislator a picture of their kids entering a school with a red circle and cross hairs taken through a rifle scope on the photograph. Not much difference than putting on-line the addresses of LE and their families....or killing Kathleen Willey’s cat and hanging it on her front door.

Well if the chi coms and their tenured allies in the US have a new red guard/bluemob/antifa it is no surprise that the Hong Kong deal is cast aside for a repressive nostalgia tour of a more thecnically empowered thought police. Thanks masters of the universe -

I imagine that the federal police are hanging out inside having coffee and a bit of cake someone brought in while keep an eye on the monitors. In a few years, those of us left will be having a cocktail, playing chess with a bust of Caesar while the religious mobs roar back and forth outside.

....aaand Seattle gets a Special Response Team of Customs/Border Patrol guys.

I believe the mayor is agin' it, regardless of all the cops injured yesterday, but the police union is for it.

Maybe you end up with a Portlandia situation. Fedcops protect building, it draws in rioters. I seem to remember a zombie novel (World War Z?) that presented that as strategy...stick some people in fortified cities to draw the undead hordes away from the majority of the living. There's something to be learned from zombie fiction when sharing the planet with AntifaBLM.

In real life, what a beautiful setup for a cauldron. On day 14 of the siege, have the local PD block the streets at 3:00AM and snag everyone. If nothing else, you know darned well that their Stingray system is working overtime.

James Howard Kunstler speaks:

"When Portland, OR, Mayor, Ted Wheeler, dropped in to check out the “peaceful protest” action down at the Federal courthouse Wednesday night in his spiffy REI riot casuals and dual purpose Covid-19 / riot mask with matching riot goggles, he seemed a little surprised to find himself in the midst of… a riot. Perhaps he had not been following all the Twitter videos of what looked like a Road Warrior free-for-all, what with the Antifa soldiers ripping down fences, banging wrecking bars through the ground-floor protective barriers, shooting roman candles and laser-beams at the pitifully small crew of federal officers, and hurling rocks, bottles, human waste, and anything else at hand at them in their determination to bum-rush the entrance and burn the place down.

Mayor Wheeler also serves as the city’s police commissioner, but he apparently forgot to notify the department that something might require their attention down there on SW Third Ave. The Feds were on their own. Mayor Ted made his way to the front of the mob, pulled on his chin while surveying the colorful scene and then — surprise — the mob discovered he was among them and turned its ire on him, crying, in Antifa vernacular, “Fuck you, Ted” and “Resign, asshole!” As a few bottles and gobs of suspicious liquid flew his way he began to comprehend that his grandstanding wasn’t appreciated, and he withdrew to the safety of his nearby mayoral aeire with his security detail.

Afterward, in a press release, he observed: “What I saw last night was powerful in many ways. I listened, heard, and stood with protesters. And I saw what it means when the federal government unleashes paramilitary forces against its own people.” ......."

So the democrats are comparing our brave agents trying to stop the destruction of our buildings as "storm troopers"? Isn't it correct to say the ANTIFA and BLM are doing their version of "crystal Night"? They just don't know their history as dopes Pelosi the idiot Speaker.t

A&E lost half its audience after killing live PD -

“He’s very keen on seeing the violence in our streets end. He wants to protect the people of this country when derelict Democrat mayors and governors do not,” McEnany said.

“He’s also appalled by cancel culture and cancel culture specifically as it pertains to cops. We saw a few weeks ago that PAW Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was canceled. The show Cops was canceled. Live PD was canceled. Lego halted the sales of their Lego City Police Station.”

McEnany continued: “It’s really unfortunate because I stand with, and the President stands with the 63 percent of Americans who think police officers are one of the most important jobs in this country.”

"Fri, 07/24/2020

Carmen Best, Chief of Police sent out a letter to businesses, Seattle City Council and the community in light of potential protests that are thought to be staged this weekend. As part of the preparations she outlines, all precincts are being boarded up. A crew from Herzog Glass was busy adding plywood to all lower windows at the SW Precinct exterior on Friday. This is a purely precautionary measure and in response to what Chief Best characterizes as being denied the use of even non-lethal tools to "safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large violent crowd."

Her letter states:

Dear Business Owner and/or Resident:

Please know that the Seattle Police Department is committed to addressing life safety incidents and calls for service, and responding to ongoing demonstrations and unrest in the city.

Please also know that the City Council Ordinance 119805 Crowd Control Tool goes into effect this weekend on Sunday, July 26, 2020. This ordinance bans Seattle Police officers the use of less lethal tools, including pepper spray that is commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent. Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.

It is important to bring to your attention that yesterday, I sent the City Council a letter ensuring them that as the Chief of Police, I have done my due diligence of informing them numerous times of the foreseeable impact of this ordinance on upcoming events. The letter is attached for your reference.

For these reasons, Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend – as I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in a safe way.

Sincerely,

Carmen Best

Chief of Police"

re DonB 350pm - Does this mean that we will now take the next step toward the Great Divide and no longer attend each other's sporting events. I wouldn't be caught dead at a game at which one or both of the teams dissed the national anthem and America. Something tells me a few millions of others would also stay away.
