Minnesota National Guard Activated Out Of “Abundance of Caution”

We are seeing the National Guard rolled out in American cities as looters and rioters wreak havoc on businesses and individuals as a “protest” to police killings.

Understandably, people on both sides are upset, yet this is just another way to get the public used to martial law.

“Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of Minnesotans, we have asked the Minnesota National Guard to prepare to assist in keeping the peace,” Governor Tim Walz said. There is definitely an attempt to keep the violence levels high so we all get used to seeing the military on our streets.  According to officials (the ruling class), the National Guard was activated following the release of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin from a correctional facility. Chauvin was captured on video kneeling on the neck of George Floyd until he died.

Here’s What’s Coming for America as the Coronavirus Spread: MEDICAL MARTIAL LAW

The following was written in 2014:

We are on the cusp of absolute tyranny. The presence of the military on American streets should concern everyone.

According to Fox News, as of right now, no violence has been reported in response to Chauvin’s release.

It seems like the timing is impeccable to activate the National Guard.  Just look at what the military will be tasked with doing within weeks:

Trump: “The Military Is Ready To Deliver A Vaccine”

The election is around the corner and so is the vaccine. Perhaps this all just coincidence, but that seems incredibly unlikely.

Fauci’s Warning: “Hunker Down” Over Winter, Second Lockdown Coming

If there is a second lockdown coming, there could be an expectation that people will revolt, and things could get really ugly.  It’s hard to say how these events will unfold, but we know that there are plans for chaos, and certainly feels like all of the agendas are coming together for the elitists perfectly right now.

National Guard Put On Standby For The Coming Preplanned Chaos

After a violent summer of looting, rioting, and protests, the national guard has been put on standby for the preplanned incoming chaos. The National Guard has put hundreds of military police on standby specifically to help law enforcement deal with any potential violence in the coming months, three United States military officials said.

Military officials told Reuters that while the units were not specifically created to address potential violence around the November 3 elections, their existence highlights how the military could help deal with unrest around the vote without deploying active-duty troops to cities. Apparently, this is a key tenet for Pentagon leadership.

Is it possible that the national guard is on standby for this too?

The Pentagon & CDC Will Join Together To Mass Distribute The COVID Vaccine

They have preplanned this election chaos, and for those who can see it, we understand that a military martial law police state was the plan from the beginning. Maybe the protests and looting and rioting haven’t been violent enough.  Who knows.  But we have been warned of the “darkest winter” and election violence for several months now. We should have known we would need to prepare for martial law, especially considering the government has already told us the military will deliver the vaccine around election time.

Vaccine Update: The Military Has A HEAVY-HANDED Involvement In Operation Warp Speed

A senior National Guard official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the military police “Rapid Response Units” had been established in the past month and could deploy to any part of the country within 24 hours if requested by a governor.

“We’re in very unique times right now in our country, we’ve seen several instances of where civil disturbances escalated very quickly to riots, extensive property damage,” the official said. The units would be on standby until at least the end of the year, the official said. –Yahoo News

Suddenly the government is concerned about property damage when looters and rioters have been destroying things for months? This is uncanny timing and bears scrutiny.

All of this seems to be set to coalesce into something big around election time. Please stay alert and prepared for anything. The signs are there that we need to remain vigilant and understand what could go down. The election is now a mere 26 days away.

20 Things That You Must Believe In Order To Convince Yourself That Everything Is Going To Turn Out Okay Somehow

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

Despite everything that we have already been through in 2020, the dominant narrative in our society right now is that everything is going to be just fine once we get past our temporary problems.  So many people that I hear from can’t understand why I am so “negative” about the future because they are completely convinced that really great days are just around the corner.

As odd as this may sound, we are seeing this sort of wild optimism among both Democrats and Republicans, Christians and atheists, capitalists and communists.  Of course, about half the country will have their optimistic hopes for the future brutally crushed by the results of the upcoming election, but we aren’t there yet.  For now, both sides are absolutely convinced that they are going to win, and both sides are envisioning a wonderful new era for our nation in which their values reign triumphant.

If only things were that easy.

The truth is that many of our largest problems have been steadily growing for decades, and they aren’t going to magically disappear just because a particular candidate wins an election.  Our debt levels are absolutely exploding, our economy has plunged into a depression, there is widespread civil unrest in our streets, our nation is more divided than it has ever been in my entire lifetime, and our society is literally coming apart at the seams as just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is growing rapidly all around us.

But there are a whole lot of people out there that want to stick their heads in the sand and pretend that everything is going to be just fine.

If you would like to be just like them, the following are 20 things that you must believe in order to convince yourself that everything is going to turn out okay somehow…

#1 “Being 27 trillion dollars in debt is not a problem.  We can go into as much debt as we want, and future generations of Americans won’t mind at all that we are dumping all of our bills on them.”

#2 “The fact that the Federal Reserve creates trillions of dollars out of thin air whenever a major crisis erupts doesn’t really matter.  We can debase the reserve currency of the world as much as we want and the rest of the globe will continue to use it and the inflation rate in this country will never get out of control.”

#3 “Antifa is just an idea, and all of the rioting, looting, and violence will somehow magically come to an end after the upcoming election.”

#4 “When I see people smashing windows, setting buildings on fire and shooting at police officers, I just remember to remind myself that those are really just peaceful protesters.”

#5 “It is perfectly okay that a former intern for Joe Biden will moderate the next presidential debate.  He has promised that he will be perfectly neutral, and I believe him.”

#6 “Kamala Harris will never become president if Joe Biden wins the election because Joe Biden is so strong and vigorous that he could easily make it through two terms.”

#7 “The Democrats would never pack the Supreme Court because Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are way too decent to ever allow that to happen.”

#8 “Once the election is over, the big social media companies will give us our freedom of speech back because that is the right thing to do.”

#9 “It makes perfect sense that the stock market has soared to record highs while the real economy has plunged into a horrifying depression.  This isn’t a bubble, and stock prices will just keep going up indefinitely.”

#10 “It is perfectly okay that 40 percent of U.S. children are being born outside of marriage.  America can certainly prosper without strong marriages and strong families because so many other great civilizations have shown that it can be done.”

#11 “Even though study after study has shown that antibodies fade very rapidly and that any immunity is very short-lived, a vaccine will save us from this pandemic.”

#12 “Once this virus has been eradicated, they won’t make us wear masks anymore, and they certainly wouldn’t try to force people to take vaccines if they don’t want them.”

#13 “Now that everyone has seen how much chaos this pandemic has caused, evil people would never purposely release more deadly viruses because they wouldn’t want to kick us while we are down.”

#14 “There is no need to worry that our relationships with Russia and China have gone down the tubes because our military is so strong that nobody would ever dare getting into a military conflict with us.”

#15 “Even though the head of the UN World Food Program is warning that there will be famines of ‘biblical proportions’, I am sure that any food shortages are just temporary and everyone in the world will have plenty of food to eat in 2021 and beyond.”

#16 “More than 60 million Americans have filed new claims for unemployment benefits this year, but most of those jobs will quickly come back, and we are on the verge of the greatest era of economic prosperity in U.S. history.”

#17 “The rapid rise in crime rates in cities all over the nation is just temporary.  I am sure that things will go back to normal in 2021.”

#18 “We can ignore the hundreds of earthquakes that are shaking the west coast, because ‘the Big One’ probably won’t happen for thousands of years.”

#19 “The fact that tens of millions of Americans will be mailing in their ballots won’t cause any issues at all.  All of the ballots will be counted quickly, efficiently, and accurately, and the American people will remain perfectly calm while we wait for days or even weeks to find out the winner of the presidential election.”

#20 “Even though more than 60 million children have already been aborted, and even though every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us, there will never be any serious consequences for our actions and the greatest days for America are still ahead of us even though we completely refuse to change our ways.”

Our Society Is In The Process Of Breaking Down All Around Us

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

Have you noticed that people don’t treat one another with the same level of respect and civility that they once did?  Everywhere I look, people are treating one another badly, and this should greatly alarm all of us.

Perhaps we can blame some of this on the pandemic because the restrictions that authorities have implemented around the nation have definitely put people in a bad mood.  And of course, the fact that this is an election year is certainly not helping things.  But I am seeing people that are supposedly on the same side treating each other with extreme contempt.  Conservatives are fighting with conservatives, liberals are fighting with liberals, Christians are fighting with Christians, and over the past year, I have been seeing families break up all over the place.  Hearts are growing so cold, and all of the strife and discord that we are witnessing makes me wonder what things will be like when economic conditions in this nation really start falling apart.

There is so much anger and frustration in the air right now, and we are definitely seeing this being reflected in the crime numbers.  For example, it is being reported that burglaries in San Francisco have risen 42 percent so far this year…

In San Francisco, burglaries are up 42% in the first 9 months of this year, compared to the same time period in 2019. In the Northern District, which includes Pacific Heights, the Marina, North Beach, and Cow Hollow, it’s up 59%. In the Mission, 79% and in the Richmond up 50%.

In some neighborhoods, the same criminals are returning over and over again, and things have gotten so bad that one local resident recently admitted that she “cannot sleep at night anymore”

Thieves are returning to the same homes and neighborhoods within the same week, sometimes only one day apart.

“It’s a big wave of crime right now. it’s home burglaries and this is scary. I cannot sleep at night anymore,” said Iryna Gorb.

I can’t even imagine what it must be like lying in bed wondering if this will be the night when the burglars will return again.

In addition to home invasions, San Francisco is seeing an alarming number of stores being hit as well

And it’s not just happening to homes. Video from a Pacific Heights’ Food Market a week and a half ago shows a suspect’s seen setting up a blow torch on the store’s glass.

When it doesn’t budge, he comes back and tries a throwing a planter to break in.

We are seeing similar scenes play out all over America on a nightly basis these days, and it is only going to get worse in the months ahead.

Over on the east coast, New York City has also seen a 42 percent rise in burglaries so far in 2020, and the number of shootings is up 91 percent

Year-to-date, there has been a 91% spike in citywide shooting incidents, a 42% increase in burglaries and a 33% decrease in hate crimes.

Considering the fact that hundreds of thousands of people have already moved out of New York City, there shouldn’t be that many people left to shoot, but these are the numbers that authorities are giving us.

And sometimes people are being murdered without a gun being used at all.  I have to admit that I was greatly disturbed when I recently heard what happened to one man on a Manhattan subway platform

A man has died after he was repeatedly stabbed in the legs following a dispute on a lower Manhattan subway station in New York City on Saturday, officials revealed.

The attack unfolded just before 3pm on the northbound J/Z train platform in Chambers Street Station, near to City Hall, where the victim, in his 20s, had been ensnared in an argument with another man, said to be in his 30s.

How cold does your heart have to be to attack someone like that?

Sadly, acts of extreme violence are happening in our major cities so frequently now that they barely make a blip in the news.  In the middle of the country, murders and shootings in Chicago are both up over 50 percent in 2020, and it is being reported that “dozens of children” under the age of 10 have been shot over the last nine months…

The Windy City – like others across the country – has seen an uptick in violent crimes this summer amid the coronavirus pandemic, mass layoffs and nationwide unrest. Murders and shootings are up 52% from the same time last year, according to police data, and dozens of children under 10 years old have been shot, some fatally.

This is what America has become.

We have become a place where children under the age of 10 are being shot on a regular basis.

Most of us depend on the police to protect us from this sort of violence, but they are being shot on a regular basis too.  Here is just one example that was in the news today

A shooting over the weekend left one Myrtle Beach police officer dead and another injured, according to a news release from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.

The officers were responding to a domestic violence call Saturday night. Authorities say shots were exchanged between them and a suspect after a confrontation.

The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis is steadily disappearing, and it isn’t just happening in the big cities.

Some of the worst crimes of all are happening in less populated areas, and if you doubt this just check out this example.

For decades, we have been raising children in an environment in which traditional moral values have been relegated to the fringes of society, and so we should not be surprised that our society is now literally coming apart at the seams all around us.

And if you think what we have experienced so far is bad, just wait until we get a few more years down the road.

Chaos and violence in our streets has become the norm, and our society now teaches us that it is perfectly okay to hate one another.

Treating others the way that you want to be treated is such a simple concept, but it works.

Unfortunately, most of the population has rejected the simple values that once united our nation, and so our society will continue to fall apart all around us as we plunge into a deeply uncertain future.

burn it down Civil War court reform division Donald Trump election Elizabeth Warren escalation Headline News IMPEACHMENT Intelwars left vs. right paradigm lie looting Mitch McConnell Nancy Pelosi promises Rioting Ruth Bader Ginsburg social media warnings this is war Threats Violence vows

Democrats Promise Violence: “This Is WAR!”

The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has prompted President Donald Trump to act quickly to secure a replacement before the election. That decision has upset the left and they are promising violence in increasingly concerning statements such as “this is war!”

We may not be able to escape a civil war in this country. There’s simply too much division. Even though Donald Trump has vowed to replace Ginsburg with another female justice, those on the left feel that it should be put off until after the election.

The fight over the 2017 Kavanaugh nomination already looked tame by comparison Sunday as Democrats geared up to block whomever President Trump picks to fill the seat left by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to the Washinton Times. 

Calls of “burn it down” and “this is war” raged on social media as activists held weekend protests outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s homes in Louisville, Kentucky, and Washington, D.C., and a rally outside the Supreme Court featuring Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave. This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them,” tweeted progressive Hollywood director and actor Rob Reiner.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday warned that another impeachment attempt of Trump is on the table. They have also suggested making big changes and expanding the government, which is never a good idea for the public.

“If in fact, they are successful in placing a justice on the court, I think that what Democrats have to do, assuming that Biden is president and there is a Senate majority in for the Democrats, we need to think about court reform,” said former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on MSNBC. “And at a minimum, as part of that reform package, I think additional justices needed to be placed on the Supreme Court.”

The election has already been promised to be one of complete horror.

Brace For The Worst Election In U.S. History

Systematic Collapse of Society: Manufactured Election Crisis & FAMINE

Now is the time to ensure you have adequate protection. Violence appears inevitable and if we can trust anything, it’s that violence and looting and rioting will all be on the table this year no matter what. Brace yourselves, it will get uglier.

Intelwars looting Nancy Pelosi Protests Riots social justice

Nancy Pelosi condemns rioting as public sentiment turns against unrest: ‘They should be prosecuted’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) spoke forcefully Thursday against the riots that have been occurring with regularity for nearly four months in cities all over the country, as polling continues to show public sentiment souring on the unrest.

Pelosi and other Democrats have spent much of the last few months criticizing President Donald Trump’s use of federal law enforcement to stop violence in places like Chicago and Portland, Oregon.

“We support peaceful demonstrations, we participate in them, they are part of the essence of our democracy,” Pelosi said. “That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting. They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness. I’m very proud that Joe Biden has presented the clarity that, making a distinction that I don’t think our colleagues quite understand but the American people do and a poll released today said that the American people support congressional Democrats over President Trump in terms of dealing with the issue of crime in our country for all of their misrepresentations.”

Pelosi also claimed that voters support congressional Democrats to handle crime more than they trust President Trump.

Protests began in late May after George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Department officers while resisting them after they attempted to arrest him for allegedly using counterfeit money at a local store.

Anti-police protests sprung up all over the country, often devolving into dangerous riots at night time. Protesters in Seattle took over blocks of the city and occupied a police precinct. Further police violence incidents, such as the shooting of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta and the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, sparked renewed protests and violence.

Portland, which has long dealt with general unrest often inflamed by Antifa, has seen some form of protests in the streets for more than 100 days in a row. Former GOP congressman Trey Gowdy criticized Pelosi for her late condemnation of the ongoing violence.

“You can be 100% behind law and order and law enforcement, or you can be, in her case, 100 days behind them,” Gowdy said on Fox News. “It’s been about 100 days. In that time, she had time to compare cops to stormtroopers. She had time to call [House Minority Leadaer] Kevin McCarthy the ‘enemy of the state.’ She had time to get her hair done … but she had no time to defend law enforcement until the polls started tightening.”

ALL Of MSM Is In On It! Fox News Host Stops Gingrich From Talking About Soros-Elected DAs

More and more, as each day goes by, it appears that even “right-wing” mainstream media is on this gigantic scam and making it obvious. A Fox News host actually stopped Newt Gingrich from talking about George Soros-funded and elected district attorneys in cities that are bringing due to looting and rioting.

There is no more illusion of choice. The illusion is gone. We have no choice, they decide, we are supposed to obey. Harris Faulkner, a Fox News host, had Newt Gingrich on to discuss the damage being done by protestors funded by Geroge Soros. Along with Faulkner, a CIA spokesperson ganged up on former House speaker and political pundit Gingrich when he brought up the undisputed fact that George Soros funded candidates for prosecutors in riot-struck cities.

There are just some things the public shouldn’t know about or focus on, and it sure appears that we are supposed to be kept in the dark about almost everything.

“The number one problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich told the hosts of ‘Outnumbered’ on Wednesday.  “Both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys,” he continued. “Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money. They are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street.”


He was cut off by panelist Melissa Francis – who hosts her own show on Fox Business – saying “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.” Fellow panelist Marie Harf – who was a spokeswoman for the CIA and the State Department during the Obama administration – joined in, arguing that “George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation.”

“Okay, so it’s verboten?” Gingrich said, incredulous. After a long moment of awkward silence, host Harris Faulkner simply said “Okay, we’re going to move on.

Gingrich has tried to discuss Soros’ financing of violent left-wing groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter in a Fox News appearance recently. In early August, he told ‘Fox and Friends’ that Democrats are “owned by people who are financed by George Soros.”

George floyd Insurance Intelwars looting Property damage record Riots vandalism

Looting, vandalism from 2020 riots estimated to break insurance claim records

The looting and destruction of property linked to riots following the death of George Floyd are estimated to be the “most expensive in insurance history,” according to an exclusive report from Axios.

What are the details?

Axios reported that according to data from a firm called Property Claim Services, “The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King.”

Damage from the LA riots following the acquittal of the officers seen on video beating King cost insurers $775 million, which comes in at $1.42 billion when adjusted to 2020 dollars.

But the claims keep rolling in for property damage linked to civil unrest following the death of Floyd in late May, as riots in several U.S. cities continue months later — meaning even the high $2 billion estimate could be eclipsed.

Loretta Worters of the Insurance Information Institute explained to the outlet, “It’s not just happening in one city or state — it’s all over the country. And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.”

The Daily Wire noted:

The Floyd riots are also notable because the destruction is ongoing in places like Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, and new riots and incidents of looting crop up in cities weekly, as new police-involved shooting incidents come to light. The $2 billion likely does not include damage in Rochester, New York, or Lancaster, Pennsylvania, both of which played host, last weekend, to demonstrations that eventually turned violent. And it definitely does not include anticipated unrest following the November presidential election.

Other costly periods of civil unrest in America “include the Watts riots in Los Angeles in 1965, the 1967 Detroit riot, and the New York City blackout of 1977,” Fox News reported.

Those events racked up losses totaling $357 million, $322 million, and $118 million respectively, in 2020 dollars.

Property Claim Services classifies events that result in more than $25 million in losses to be a “catastrophe.”

Anything else?

The Daily Mail pointed out that property damage claims due to civil unrest typically “pale in comparison to those related to natural disasters.”

The outlet reported, “Insurance companies paid out a total of $219billion worldwide for natural disasters in 2017 and 2018, according to Swiss Re,” adding that “in California alone, insurance companies paid out $20 billion in claims during those two years after wildfires devastated the state.”

NYC Mayor Comrade De Blasio Shuts Down Thanksgiving Day Parade

New York City mayor and known communist, Bill de Blasio has already shut down the city’s infamous Thanksgiving Day Parade all because of the scamdemic. With more than two months until Thanksgiving day, de Blasio somehow already knows the COVID-19 hoax will somehow play a role.

Luckily, de Blasio is being mercilessly mocked on social media for his heavy-handed tyrannical decision. De Blasio’s attempt to “reinvent” the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, an American tradition, was met will all kinds of disdain. The parade will be “reinvented” and held virtually this year due to safety concerns around the ongoing coronavirus pandemic hoax. “It will not be the same parade we are used to,” De Blasio said at a press conference on Monday, according to a report by RT. “It will be a different kind of event. [Macy’s is] reinventing the event for this moment in history.”

The mayor attempted to downplay the scale of these changes by reminding citizens that the fourth of July fireworks show was also greatly scaled back. Don’t be surprised is these tyrants pull off another lockdown banning people from being with family during the holidays.  Because of his willingness to exert control over everything and every person, the public is hitting back.

Commie De Blasio’s Snitch Hotline FLOODED With Obscenities

Many view de Blasio’s decision as an “ongoing culture war” between the left and the right, and accused him of wanting to cancel Christmas, and I’d be lying if I said that that is beneath even this comrade.

This is just one more example of the total control these people want over everyone’s life. They are cancelling whatever they can and most Americans are still not speaking out against this. If we continue to let this drag on, we will all be slaves injected and subservient to the New World Order and the ruling classes of the planet.

‘You loot, we shoot’: Armed property owners in Oregon threaten would-be lawbreakers amid wildfires

Some residents in Clackamas County, Oregon, have taken to posting roadside signs warning potential lawbreakers that if they’re caught looting or setting fires, they may find themselves facing the wrong end of a gun — and feeling the pain of a bullet.

KPTV-TV’s lead news photographer Devin Eskew
encountered a number of such warning signs as the state battles huge wildfires:

How are folks reacting to the signs?

KPTV-TV reported on the posted warning signs and the Riverside Fire’s devastation, the station didn’t speak to locals who might have reactions to the messages on the signs in Estacada and Colton.

But folks reacting on Twitter to Eskew’s photos of the signs had a few things to say. Some were flat-out against the signs:

  • “I say, let their damned houses burn,” one commenter said. “These guys won’t be missed. #LetTheMAGAtsDie. (I used to be a much kinder person before Trump…)”
  • “Those white trash losers don’t even own anything worth looting,” another commenter wrote.

It seemed, however, that quite a few more users were in support of the signs:

  • “I support this completely,” one commenter countered. “If these lawless criminals can bend the law and do what they want, so can everyone else.”
  • “Anybody who would loot peoples’ homes during a wildfire emergency is a pretty terrible human,” another commenter added. “As for them putting up signs warning those same trash humans away, guess they can’t say they weren’t warned.”
  • “ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT,” another commenter said. “Anyone caught should be dealt with appropriately. We all know the Dems would just say, ‘Poor non-gender [person] needs things, too. Be nice to it and talk to it; it will come around.’ Do what needs to be done to protect your homes.”
  • “It is a sad world we live in that one has to choose to stay within danger to protect property from looters,” another commenter noted. “There was a time when people helped each other, not [stole] from each other. Our society has bred people who think they are entitled to help themselves to whatever they want.”

Anything else?

Clackamas County deputies confirmed Saturday they have made two theft-related arrests in the fire zones, the station said, adding that one was in Mulino and another in the eastern portion of the county.

Bill Maher shreds CNN correspondent on live television for defending riots, looting, downplaying violence

Comedian Bill Maher castigated former CNN White House correspondent Jessica Yellin on Friday after she appeared to dismiss recent violence and unrest erupting across the country following George Floyd’s death.

Yellin, author of the novel “Savage News” and founder of #NewsNotNoise on Instagram, appeared on the show along with Peter Hamby, host of Snapchat’s political show “Good Luck America” and contributing writer for Vanity Fair.

What are the details?

Yellin appeared on Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” where she insisted that nationwide violence was concentrated in a small area in Portland, Oregon.

“I’m not down with this ‘Property’s on the table as something we can just take because things are not right,'” Maher said of protests and looting.

Yellin responded, “Where is the mass destruction of property happening right now?” prompting Maher to incredulously fire back, “Do you watch the news?”

“If you look at Portland, it’s two square blocks!” Yellin insisted.

From that point, it was clear that Maher wouldn’t let her get a word in edgewise.

“There is a view, it is in the media,” he told her. “Please. I know you’ve seen it. Don’t look at me like I am making this up — that somehow this is a justifiable approach.”

Yellin refused to depart from her talking points, and feebly responded, “Isn’t pain part of protest? I mean, isn’t that what … ”

“So you’re part of this,” he answered. “You believe it!”

He later added, “I saw this guy at a Papa John’s yelling through his broken glass, ‘You are going to elect Trump and I’m just trying to feed my family.’ I don’t think his view is just, like, ‘C’est la vie, it’s just property.'”

Anything else?

According to Deadline, “Real Time with Bill Maher” is believed to be the very first talk show to bring back live audiences following the COVID-19 production shutdown earlier this year.

The outlet notes that the production permitted no more than 25 audience members in the studio during a live taping.

Men accused of looting homes in Oregon’s wildfire evacuation zone take deputies on crazy chase through golf course

Deputies have arrested two men who they believe were looting homes in Oregon that had been evacuated due to the deadly wildfires on the West Coast.

The Beachie Creek Fire, which is smoldering in Clackamas and Marion Counties south of Portland, has burned 186,856 acres. In Marion County, officials have ordered 13,764 structures to be evacuated because they are at a Level 3 evacuation, which means “evacuate now” because there is current or imminent danger for the area.

With so many homes having been evacuated because of the massive fires, two Oregon men apparently tried to capitalize on the devastating natural disaster. Anthony Travis Bodda, 21, and Alexander Justin Jones, 36, were accused by police of looting evacuated homes in Marion County and taking deputies on a wild high-speed chase.

On Thursday, firefighting crews alerted police to a suspicious van in the towns of Detroit and Idahna, and were concerned that the vehicle could be involved with recent looting in the area.

Deputies responded just after 10 a.m. on Thursday, and the van drove off “at a high rate of speed.” Deputies from Marion and Linn Counties, as well as Oregon State Police, pursued the van in the Beachie Creek wildfire evacuation zone. The men attempted to ditch police by driving through a golf course.

Police used spike strips to disable the vehicle, then the men jumped out of the van and ran through the golf course. A police dog chased down the suspects. One was attempting to break into a home to escape the cops when he was apprehended. The other man was also tracked down by a K9 unit as he was entering a goat shed, according to police.

Bodda and Jones were both booked at the Marion County Jail and charged with attempted theft in the first degree, burglary in the second degree, felony elude, misdemeanor elude, reckless driving, interfering with a peace officer, possession of a burglary tool, reckless endangering, criminal mischief in the first degree, and criminal trespass in the second degree.

Sheriff officials said several stolen items were found inside the van. Bodda and Jones are also responsible for $1,500 in damage to the golf course, according to Fox News.

“I am disappointed that while in a state of emergency these people would victimize members of our community,” Marion County Sheriff Joe Kast said. “The women and men of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office are committed to holding people accountable if they chose to victimize residents from our evacuated areas.”

He added that his officers would continue to patrol the evacuated areas to prevent any looting.

People in Oregon have said that their homes were looted during the deadly wildfires.

“Everything had been rifled through,” said Christy Beaver from Junction City. “Drawers were open. Stuff was all over. Credit cards and checkbooks were missing. We’re not sure what else is missing because we haven’t been able to go back up there.”

Blue River resident Marcie Costa said that she lost her home in the Holiday Farm Fire. Her neighbor’s home survived the fire, but possession worth more than $1,000 were stolen, including a generator.

“We’ve suffered enough these people have suffered enough,” Costa said. “We don’t need to be victimized anymore from someone who don’t give a stuff about us.”

“We understand that OSP and the Sheriff’s Department are doing the best that they can,” Costa said. “But they’re spread so thin.”

Rumors of widespread looting caused 300 people to attempt to return to their homes inside the fiery evacuation zone. The concerned residents left the Super 8 hotel in Redmond on Thursday to inspect their properties for fire damage and looting.

“All across the region, we are asking folks to please respect those closures,” said Kassidy Kern, a spokesperson for the U.S. Forest Service. “Not just for the security of your personal property, but also for firefighters working in the area.”

College students say rioting, looting ‘justified’ because ‘people in power have stolen so much more’

Rioters and looters — like many on the left — have parroted the same lines this summer to somehow make their immoral actions morally upright.

To wit: Last month Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally supporting and defending more than 100 people who were arrested for looting in the city the previous night. BLM organizer Ariel Atkins justified the estimated $60 million in damages as “reparations.”

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” Atkins said, WMAQ-TV reported. “That makes sure that person has clothes.” Atkins added, “That is reparations. Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”

What did college students have to say?

With that in mind, Campus Reform headed to George Washington University in Washington, D.C., to ask college students what they thought about the looting and rioting. Their answers were less than surprising, unfortunately.

“In my opinion … it definitely can be justified given that’s pretty much the only way we can get our message out there,” one student said.

Another added, “I’m in support of the riots personally, whatever you need to do to be heard is the cost of it.” She added that those upset over untold financial hardships due to rioting and looting should “reevaluate” perspectives on people versus objects.

When pressed that someone paid for those destroyed or stolen physical objects, the student was unmoved: “Everything can be replaced … Target is, like, a multimillion dollar, like, company, and at the end of the day they can flip that and get it back.”

She added that detractors should “understand that there’s a larger cause that people are fighting for versus the cost that it’s gonna take to repair your small business.”

Another student called rioting and looting “inevitable” and declared that “if change is gonna come, there will be some violence that comes with that.”

‘All part of the healing process’

“I guess it’s all part of the healing process,” another student philosophized about the looting and rioting, adding that “some people get caught in the way, and it’s unfortunate, but for meaningful progress to happen unfortunate things happen.”

Another student added that such lawlessness is “justified. People in power have stolen so much more. Anything that any of them loot will never match up to how much that’s been stolen from them.”

And yet another student referred to the “many white nationalist protests that have gotten violent” and complained that “the conversation has never been about … their looting and the violence that they bring. I mean, it’s easier to characterize people of color as violent than white people, I guess.”

College Students Defend Looting, Say Riots ‘Justified’

Antifa Coronavirus Federal crime Intelwars Jim banks looting Riots unemployment

GOP rep introduces bill to make ‘Antifa thugs’ pay, lose benefits for rioting, looting

As lawlessness plagues major cities across the United States, Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) introduced legislation last week that would increase the punishment for people convicted of looting and rioting.

the “Support Peaceful Protest Act,” the bill would make individuals convicted of federal crimes during the course of a protest ineligible for enhanced federal unemployment benefits or any “supplemental unemployment compensation” available to Americans during the COVID-19 panic.

The bill would also “hold individuals convicted of federal offenses during the course of protests financially liable for the cost of federal policing.”

The bill

In the case of an individual convicted of a Federal offense related to the individual’s conduct at and during the course of a protest with respect to which a Federal law enforcement officer was engaged in policing activity, the court shall, in addition to the penalty for such conviction, order the individual to pay an order of restitution to the appropriate Federal law enforcement agency in an
amount that is equal to the cost of such policing activity,
as determined by the court.

a statement, Banks said rioters who are destroying cities — like Portland and Kenosha — need to feel the financial burden they are imposing on their communities.

“Antifa thugs are descending on suffering communities, disrupting peaceful protests and leaving violence, looting and vandalism in their wake. They turned Milwaukee, Seattle and Portland into warzones, and now they’re moving the chaos to Kenosha, Wisconsin. Who knows which community is next?” Banks said.

He added, “Due to enhanced federal benefits, taxpayers are giving wages to jobless rioters that are destroying our communities. We need to cut them off from their funding and make them feel the full financial consequences of their actions.”

It’s not yet clear if Banks has enough support to secure the bill’s passage. The House is on recess until after Labor Day.

However, we already know at least 74 individuals whom Bank’s bill would target.

As TheBlaze reported, the Justice Department announced last week federal charges against 74 individuals accused of committing violence in Portland over the last several months.

“Violent agitators have hijacked any semblance of First Amendment protected activity, engaging in violent criminal acts and destruction of public safety,” U.S. Attorney Billy Williams said.

Martial Law Becoming Increasingly Acceptable As Cities Fall Under Social Unrest

Martial law is becoming a reality for many Americans. As we continue to be bombarded by psychological operations and inorganic scenarios designed to divide us further, people are playing into the hands of the elites and increasingly accepting martial law.

This is not a good sign for the United States going forward.  The Minnesota governor has called in the National Guard now, as looters and rioters continue to destroy Minneapolis in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake.  Now, before everyone gets triggered, as they always do and put themselves on one side or the other completing the division necessary by the elites to divide and conquer us, just remember:

You Can Be Against Police Brutality & Looting and Rioting At The Same Time

Police violence against innocents is wrong. Looting and rioting are wrong. If we ever hope to get our freedom back and have a life that’s not lived in a mental prison, we need to wake up and stop taking sides when both are wrong.  Most people are unable to look beyond their own indoctrination into the left/right paradigm illusion to wake up and realize violence against other humans is wrong no matter who does it. This entire psychological operation is designed to get people to only accept martial law but demand it.

Martial law is not a solution unless you advocate slavery. The looting and rioting are absolutely absurd and should not be tolerated, nor should police shootings.  Living under a police state is not living freely, and that’s not an opinion. We have got to stop acting on violence and destruction and start living peacefully in unity.  The elites absolutely love police brutality and riots because they can swoop in and make more heavy-handed tyrannical changes that will be permanent chains around our necks.

Police State, The MSM, & Race Baiting: Why We Should Unite Agaisnt ALL Tyranny

This is NOT to say that looting and rioting are acceptable, and although I’ve said that before, people are going to accuse me of taking the side against them when I have no side other than humanity’s. Looting and rioting most absolutely are NOT acceptable. All violations of another human beings’ fundamental human rights given by the creator are unacceptable.  That includes the execution of other people, even if the killer is wearing a badge. The end result is the same. A fellow human being was killed.

Wake up. This division is exactly what the ruling class and elites want in order to shove the New World Order down our throats and most Americans are playing their roles as pawns in the game epically well. I already know this will ignite cognitive dissonance in the comments with people making assumptions about which side I am promoting; which is no side because neither is moral.

We cannot drive out the evil of the New World Order while playing its game. Choose to not play the game already rigged against you. This is a war for your mind, a spiritual war if you will. If you’ve chosen either side of the left/right paradigm, you’ve already lost to the divide and conquer tactics.

CNN: “The Rioting Has To Stop” But Only Because It Will Hurt Joe Biden

Leave it to the mainstream media to finally take a moral stance on something, but only because it’ll hurt their selected political puppet during the dog and pony show election theatre. CNN‘s Don Lemon said the Kenosha violence is “showing up in the polling.”

Speaking to fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Tuesday evening, Lemon said the protests were a blind spot for Democrats.” He said the party was “ignoring this problem or hoping it will go away – and it’s not going to go away.”

During the segment, according to RT, Lemon freely admitted that his primary concern with the crisis was the possibility that it may hurt Biden’s ability to unseat President Donald Trump in the November election. “As you know and I know,” Lemon said to Cuomo, “It’s showing up in the polling. It’s showing up in focus groups.” The CNN host added that he believes the silence from the Democrats on the riots is the only line of attack against them “that is sticking.”

What happened to condemning violence because it’s wrong? Killing is wrong. Initiating unjust force or violence on peaceful people is wrong. Stealing is wrong. Strange that CNN won’t even state the simply morality of humanity. But that’s really no surprise. There’s no morality left in either politics (which is just a puppet show, as we know) or the mainstream media.  These people are absolutely insanely pushing this New World Order garbage, and it’s astonishing that others are still fast asleep right now.

It seems that at least some people are waking up to the spell the mainstream media, which is the government’s propaganda arm, has put on them at the commands of the puppet masters in the Federal Reserve. This political dog and pony show quickly became a talking point for Donald Trump’s campaign.

Trump’s team quickly tweeted out the video and gloated that even CNN anchors think Biden is “too weak to stand up to rioters and looters,” according to a report by RT

Kenosha, Wisconsin Descends Into A War Zone

The violence has been ongoing but turned deadly early this morning when a confrontation between demonstrators and a group of men armed with guns. This occurred at protests and riots over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, in which one person was injured and two were killed.

The city has seen several nights of rioting, following the police shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake. A curfew was imposed on Tuesday night and police ordered residents to stay off the streets, according to a report by RT. National Guard troops were also deployed to the Kenosha’s courthouse for a second night after Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers signed an executive order doubling the Guard’s presence in the city from 125 to 250 personnel.

In a separate incident, a man with a gun opened fire after being chased by a group of demonstrators. At least one person was shot in the arm.

Stay alert and be prepared. Know what’s going on but refuse to feed the fear.  The difficult times could just be beinning. Brace yourself and make sure your are well prepped for massive societal unrest and social upheaval like we have never seen.

These are the times that try men’s souls, Thomas Paine infamously said. We are descending quickly into a totalitarian regime from one that was already fascist (a merere between the government and the corporations) and socialist. The fall as fast, and the United States is gone. Sorry. It is. There will be no going back.

But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It simply means we have to make sure that once this system crashes under its own weight, we don’t allow anyone power over anyone else for any reason or any amount of time. We can have a future of freedom, but it’ll require self-reflection, morality, and personal responsibility; three things Americans drarely, if ever, do.

We Should Mourn For What Is Happening To America

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

This week it was Kenosha, Wisconsin and next week it will probably be somewhere else.  Yet another senseless police shooting was followed by more rioting, looting, and violence.

Of course rioting, looting and violence have basically become a nightly occurrence in America at this point anyway.  The protests never seem to end in some cities, and crime rates are absolutely skyrocketing all over the country.  Much of what is written about all of this chaos is focused on trying to pin the blame on someone, but even if we correctly identify who is to blame, will that actually stop the violence?  I don’t believe that it would.  In fact, I don’t think that anything is going to stop the violence any time soon.

I just feel so sad today.  We are literally watching the meltdown of our society, and that process is going to continue no matter what happens in November.  I have never seen so much anger in America, and the frightening thing is that the level of anger seems to just keep growing.

I wish that we could learn to truly forgive one another, love one another and come together as a society.  For years I have been telling my readers that civil unrest like this was coming, and there is an entire chapter in my new book entitled “Civil Unrest and Martial Law”.  So many of the things that myself and others have been warning about are now playing out right in front of our eyes, but there is absolutely no joy in being correct.  There is only sadness.  I love the United States of America and what I see happening to our nation grieves me very deeply.

Whenever I write articles about our need to love one another, those articles tend not to get much attention at all.  In America today, we would much rather hate our enemies than love them.  The corporate media has trained us to hate those “on the other side”, and they have done that job very well.  They have been stirring the pot for years, and now much of the population has been perfectly primed to explode.

In such an environment, it was inevitable that there would eventually be eruptions of violence.  On Sunday night, it was Kenosha’s turn

Armed rioters shut down streets in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Sunday night as the city fell into chaos after a police-involved shooting earlier in the evening.

A large group of rioters – including at least two armed rioters – blocked a police armored car from proceeding down a street. After a standoff, the police began throwing tear gas canisters from the top of the vehicle to disperse the crowd. Moments later, gunshots rang out after one of the protesters appeared to open fire.

The police shooting that caused these riots only happened a few hours earlier.

That means that some of these rioters were already armed and were ready to cause chaos on very little notice.

And it seems that these sorts of riots are almost always accompanied by widespread looting

The violence quickly spread and eventually large mobs began looting shops and stores throughout the city.

Later in the night, vehicles at several car dealerships were set ablaze. Including one at a dealership next to a church which displayed a Black Lives Matter sign.

And just like in so many other cities, police officers in Kenosha quickly became targets.  In fact, it was reported that one officer was actually knocked down with a brick.

Protesters were promising to come back Monday night, but Governor Tony Evers called out the National Guard in a desperate attempt to keep that from happening…

In a bid to stave off another night of chaos, Democratic Gov. Tony Evers said 125 members of the National Guard would be in Kenosha on Monday night with responsibility for ‘guarding infrastructure and making sure our firefighters and others involved are protected.’

The Kenosha Police Department declared a state-of-emergency curfew for Monday night beginning at 8pm until 7am the following morning, according to a post on the police department’s Twitter feed.

Meanwhile, we witnessed yet another senseless riot in Portland on Sunday night…

A tumultuous weekend in Portland ended late Sunday night with Portland Police declaring a riot outside of the bureau’s North Precinct.

Police said they made 23 arrests over the course of the night on various charges like interfering with a peace officer and rioting.

During the riot, protesters were literally hurling anything that they could find at the police…

Demonstrators lit dumpsters on fire, and threw fireworks, rocks, and “sharp chunks of ceramic” at officers, police said.

Just after 10:30 p.m., police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly.

Sadly, a similar scene unfolded in Denver just the night before…

Dozens of armed Black Lives Matter anarchists descended on the Denver Police Headquarters and damaged buildings, set fires and shot fireworks at cops.

The mob, consisting of between 50 to 75 demonstrators, were said to be wielding numerous weapons — from axes to guns — during the incident.

Of course the riot in Denver didn’t even make many headlines around the nation because this sort of thing has become so commonplace in our major cities at this point.

We have basically entered a period of semi-permanent civil unrest.

And now that lawlessness has been unleashed in our streets, new eruptions of violence will be easily sparked with each new incident that comes along.

I am particularly concerned about this upcoming election season.  It is easy to imagine quite a few scenarios which would unleash widespread rage and fury.

I just wish that things could be different.

Americans should not be fighting other Americans in the streets, and it deeply grieves me whenever I see it happening.

If everyone simply treated others the way that they would like to be treated, we wouldn’t see senseless police shootings and there wouldn’t be rioting and looting in our streets.

Unfortunately, the very basic values that this nation was founded upon were rejected by our society long ago, and now we are paying a very great price for that choice.

Chicago police arrest woman for looting during protests — they say she livestreamed it on Facebook

A woman was
arrested by police for allegedly looting during the protests in Chicago, and they say they caught her because she livestreamed her actions on Facebook.

Chicago police charged 22-year-old Taeshia Rochon with two felony counts of burglary and two felony counts of looting. They say that the Looting Task Force received a tip about the video Rochon posted to Facebook Live.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office accused Rochon of posting two livestream videos of her participating in looting at Nordstrom and Sunglass Hut.

Videos from her livestream were widely circulated on social media during the rioting and looting of downtown Chicago stores on Aug. 10:

In another video attributed to Rochon, she can be heard encouraging other looters as they stream out of the stores.

More than 100 people were arrested in the looting and 13 Chicago police officers were injured during the rioting. Police charged six other people with offenses related to the looting on Monday.

Chicago police searching social media

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced Monday the formation of a task force that would search social media to help identify criminals and aid in apprehending them.

“As we’ve seen over these past few months, social media platforms have repeatedly been used to organize large groups of people to engage in illegal activity,” Lightfoot said.

Residents kick out looters

After the looting and rioting was blamed on residents of Englewood, Chicago community leaders angrily denounced outsider protesters and pushed them out of their neighborhood.

“I don’t see none of you motherf***ers when it’s kids back here shot up!” yelled Darryl Smith, a longtime resident of Englewood.

“I’m out here every day! Y’all don’t come out here when the kids get shot!” he added. “Y’all come out when it has to do with the f***ing police!”

Here’s more about the looting in Chicago:

As crime soars, Chicago Police Dept. creates special unit to monitor social media for looting

As Chicago has faced weeks of increased violence and looting, the elected leaders in the Windy City have faced ongoing questions of whether they are capable of protecting the city’s residents and businesses.

In an attempt to quell the public’s rising concerns about the city’s preparedness and effectiveness in combatting increased crime, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) and members of city, state, and federal law enforcement announced a new plan to battle looting, WMAQ-TV reported Friday evening.

Social media monitoring

Lightfoot revealed that the Chicago Police Department established a 20-person unit to monitor social media activity that could give clues to future looting plans, WMAQ said, and will watch all open-source sites 24 hours a day.

“As we’ve seen over these past few months, social media platforms have repeatedly been used to organize large groups of people to engage in illegal activity,” Lightfoot said.

Along with the social media task force, the CPD also created a Task Force of Detectives, in conjunction with the FBI, to focus on looting investigations. According to the mayor, the unit is going over video surveillance and compiling evidence to ID looters and put them away.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx promised that people arrested for looting will be prosecuted and announced that just last week, 43 of 44 charges brought to her office for felony approval received approval.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said the city wants “to send a message.”

“If you come downtown or to any one of our retail corridors in the neighborhoods of Chicago to loot, CPD is going to arrest you,” Brown said, WMAQ reported. “If someone is attempting to break windows to loot, CPD is going to arrest you. If you’re going in our stores that have been broken into in attempt to loot, CPD is going to arrest you. If you are carrying or transporting merchandise from a store that has been looted, you will be stopped and arrested.”

“We are going to deploy all tactics necessary to prevent and stop looting,” Brown added.

According to WMAQ, the CPD has canceled all days off and has cops working 12-hour shifts. The outlet also noted that the department is increasing its presence by 1,000 officers.

“We’ve increased our numbers on the street, on the ground, in our downtown area, in our neighborhoods,” Brown said. “That’s the number one difference. We have extended hours that our officers work, we have extended the number of days they work in a week by canceling days off. So there is an increase of 1,000 officers above what would normally be here.”

Chicago mayor claims riots and looting were a planned attack on the city

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the rioting and looting that occurred in her city Sunday night and Monday morning were the result of a coordinated and pre-planned attack, not organic protests of an officer-involved shooting, according to Time.

Businesses in downtown Chicago were damaged and looted for the second time in the past few months, and the situation got so out of control that the city raised the bridges leading into the area to limit access.

The violence was allegedly sparked by the non-fatal police shooting of 20-year-old Latrell Allen on Sunday afternoon. Allen stands charged with first-degree attempted murder and possession of a concealed weapon, and reportedly shot at police first.

Lightfoot acknowledges that some of the unrest may have come from legitimate protesters, but said most of the damage was done by highly organized criminals looking to take advantage of the chaos.

“When people showed up on Michigan Avenue in the downtown area with U-Haul trucks and cargo vans, and sophisticated equipment used to cut metal, and the methods that were used, and how quickly it got spun up … that wasn’t any spontaneous reaction,” Lightfoot told Time. “To be sure, there are people that did join in that were motivated by lots of different reasons, and certainly were motivated by social media posts encouraging people to come downtown. But the core of what happened — that’s organized criminal activity. … It was a planned attack.”

There were reportedly more than 1,800 911 calls made between midnight and 3 a.m., and Lightfoot said looters chose to strike during that time, knowing there would be fewer police officers on duty.

Black Lives Matter Chicago disagrees with Lightfoot’s claim that the unrest was not organic, saying it was a direct result of frustration and distrust of police. The organization blamed Lightfoot for leaving Chicagoans with no option besides protest to create change.

“If mayor Lori Lightfoot is upset about the protests last night, then a plausible answer would be to provide an outlet for the people to exert control over the policing of their community,” a BLM Chicago statement read. “Instead, the mayor has opposed and ignored the demand for a Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC) which would empower the people to get justice for police violence and enact the systemic changes needed to prevent it in the future.”

Black Lives Matter chicago Intelwars looting Reparations

Black Lives Matter justifies Chicago violence, mass looting as ‘reparations’

Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support and defend the more than 100 people who were arrested for looting in the city’s downtown area the previous night.

Standing outside the police station where the arrested looters were being held, a Black Lives Matter organizer, Ariel Atkins, justified the looting and rioting — which caused an estimated $60 million in damages — as “reparations” to which the black community is entitled.

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” Atkins said, WMAQ-TV reported. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”

“That is reparations,” Atkins added. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”

Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter Chicago released a statement Monday warning that unrest will continue until “the safety and well-being of our communities is finally prioritized.”

“The mayor clearly has not learned anything since May, and she would be wise to understand that the people will keep rising up until the [Chicago Police Department] is abolished and our Black communities are fully invested in,” the group said, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The statement went on to say, “Over the past few months, too many people — disproportionately Black and Brown — have lost their jobs, lost their income, lost their homes, and lost their lives as the city has done nothing and the Chicago elite have profited. When protesters attack high-end retail stores that are owned by the wealthy and service the wealthy, that is not ‘our’ city and has never been meant for us.”

The new wave of racial unrest was triggered Sunday after an officer-involved shooting in Englewood, one of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods.

Police claim 20-year-old Latrell Allen fired shots at police, who responded by firing their weapons, striking and wounding Allen.

But activists questioned that version of events, especially after the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, the agency tasked investigating officer-involved shootings, revealed that the officers involved in the incident were not wearing body cameras, the Sun-Times reported.

Ultimately, police charged Allen with two counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawful possession of a weapon.

Over 100 arrested, 13 officers injured, and 2 people shot in Chicago’s Mag Mile looting spree, authorities say

More than 100 people were arrested, 2 people were shot, and 13 police officers were injured during the widespread looting and vandalism that occurred along downtown Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile” Sunday night, authorities reported in a press briefing Monday morning.

The two people shot were a civilian and a private security guard. Both individuals were reportedly taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

The injured officers included a sergeant who was struck with a bottle and another officer who had his nose broken during a struggle with looters.

What happened?

According to the Chicago Tribune, the violence and destruction of property started at around 2:30 p.m. local time Sunday after a 20-year-old man allegedly shot at police while evading arrest. Police returned fire and wounded the man, who was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center and is expected to survive.

Misinformation reportedly spread online wrongly indicating that police had shot and wounded a child, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown indicated. Brown made no excuses for the behavior of the angry mob, however.

“Criminals took to the streets with the confidence that there would be no consequences for their actions,” Brown said of the hundreds who flooded areas along Michigan Avenue during the early morning hours Monday.

“This was not an organized protest,” he added. “Rather this was an incident of pure criminality. This was an act of violence against our police officers and against our city.”

Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who has been sharply criticized for her response to recent violence in Chicago, also condemned the behavior.

“What occurred in our downtown and surrounding communities was abject criminal behavior, pure and simple,” Lightfoot said. “And there cannot be any excuse for it. Period.” Later in the press conference, Lightfoot promised a “serious response.”

Mag Mile was trashed

Images and videos posted on social media show city blocks littered with trash and debris and stores destroyed as a result of the looting and property damage.

WGN-TV posted helicopter footage of one of the shopping centers ransacked in Chicago’s Goose Island neighborhood.

Journalist Andy Ngo reposted a livestream video showing looters walking around inside a store with boxes of stolen merchandise with apparently no law enforcement nearby.

Yet another video posted by ABC News shows rioters breaking into a Tesla store.

Anything else?

During the Monday morning press conference, Brown argued that looters acted brazenly because they have been “emboldened” by the lack of consequences in the criminal system in recent months.

“We have to have consequences for the arrests that Chicago Police officers make through great threat to their own safety,” he said.

As a result of the violence, the city of Chicago raised bridges to block downtown access and instituted a curfew for Monday night.

Antifa attacks Federal officers Intelwars looting Mayor ted wheeler Portland rioters Violence watch

Rioting has plagued Portland for six straight weeks — yet leftist mayor’s ‘biggest’ worry is ‘violence federal officers brought to our streets’

Riots have plagued Portland, Oregon, for six straight weeks, Fox News reported.

Here’s a little sample. Content warning: Language:

What began as protests over George Floyd’s killing in late May has metastasized to nightly mayhem courtesy of Antifa and Black Lives Matter militants who attack police, set fires, destroy property, and roam the streets looking to intimidate anybody who gets in their way.

A group of rioters reportedly used mortars and high-intensity lasers targeting officers’ eyes amid a recent attack on a federal courthouse and were found with weapons such as a riot shield, machete, knife, mace, and components for a pipe bomb.

One rioter a few days ago was arrested after allegedly attacking a federal officer with a hammer:

Along the way, businesses have reported $23 million in losses from looting and rioting, Fox News said.

Oh, and just last night militants reportedly tried their hand at another “autonomous zone” outside the federal courthouse:

It would seem actually that Portland’s streets are closer to a war zone.

The mayor has a different view

But Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler said Tuesday he told acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf that his “biggest immediate concern is the violence federal officers brought to our streets in recent days, and the life-threatening tactics his agents use. We do not need or want their help.”

“The best thing they can do is stay inside their building, or leave Portland altogether,” Wheeler added. “Our goal is to end these violent demonstrations quickly and safely. And in the meantime, I asked him to clean up the graffiti on local federal facilities.”

DHS officers arrived in Portland earlier this month after President Donald Trump’s June 26 executive order to protect monuments, Willamette Week reported, adding that one protester underwent facial reconstructive surgery after a federal officer shot him with a projectile over the weekend.

How are folks reacting to Wheeler pointing the finger at federal officers?

As you might imagine, Wheeler has his supporters in a leftist haven such as Portland — but quite a few others were aghast at the mayor shifting blame to federal officers while his city burns:

  • “You’ve got to be kidding,” one Twitter user opined. “You’re blaming federal agencies to the horrific state of your city? What about Antifa? George Soros? I’m sure you’re pretty familiar with them.”
  • “The only reason federal officers are there [is because] it was absolute mayhem under your ‘leadership,'” another person said.
  • “We need @RudyGiuliani to move to Portland and become the mayor,” another commenter told Wheeler. “He will show you how a real mayor takes care of crime.”
  • “Just going to let your city burn at the hands of anarchists? That’s a bold strategy,” another commenter quipped. “Let’s see how it works out.”
  • “Yeah that’s amazing,” another person noted sarcastically. “Your town was so peaceful and under control until the federal officers came in.”
  • “Your lack of true leadership and ineffectiveness in accepting the assistance that your city needs just shows that it is time for you to step down and let someone who is truly concerned for the actual citizens of your city to step up,” another commenter said.
  • “What about the life threatening tactics used by Antifa against police officers and the people they protect? Any concern?” one person asked Wheeler.
  • “It’s only getting worse under your leadership,” another commenter noted. “Please resign.”
