Police Take Down The Portland Autonomous Zone… Because It Was Outside The Mayor’s Apartment

Published

on

Portland protesters rallied outside the mayor’s apartment after a $16 million cut to the police department’s budget falls short of their demands.

Protesters in Portland, Oregon tried to establish an autonomous zone of their own but were quickly dismantled by police. According to reports today, demonstrators blocked off a section of streets in front of Mayor Ted Wheeler’s apartment using dumpsters, pallets, and boards.

Here’s what the hodgepodge looked like:

Fox News:

Hundreds of protesters chanting “Black Lives Matter” and “Hands up, don’t shoot!” were seen on video rallying outside Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s apartment late Wednesday night after city commissioners voted to slash nearly $16 million from the police department’s budget.

The cuts to the police’s $245 million overall budget were passed by a 3-1 vote, although some protesters had been urging city officials to reduce the department’s spending package for the 2020-2021 fiscal year by up to $50 million. The money saved by eliminating a gun violence reduction team, school resource officers and transit division will now be redirected to social service programs.  More

So no efforts to reduce gun violence, no safety on public transportation, and social workers will handle/stop all violence in schools, including shootings, stabbings, etc.

This morning, it was dismantled:

Portland Courthouse Attacked By Antifa Militants

Portland Courthouse Attacked By Antifa Militants

For the 3rd time this week, a riot was declared in downtown Portland when the Hatfield Federal Courthouse was attacked around 4 a.m. on the 4th of July.

Shortly before 1 a.m., protesters began throwing rocks at the Federal Courthouse and then firing commercial-grade fireworks toward the Justice Center, police said.

Portland Police Bureau:

One main demonstration occurred in Portland during the evening hours of July 4 through the early morning hours of June 5, 2020.

Early in the evening, a large group began gathering in Chapman and Lownsdale Squares. For awhile, the group listened to performers and assembled in the area. Multiple members of the group began launching fireworks from Southwest Main Street where the elk statue used to stand. During this time, a man carrying a rifle was seen in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and Salmon Street. Several demonstrators surrounded him, but left him alone and eventually he left.

Just before 10 p.m., demonstrators began blocking westbound traffic on Southwest Main Street. Demonstrators continued to shoot off fireworks from this location, as well as Southwest 3rd Avenue. A vehicle associated with the demonstration had a speaker system and false announcements were broadcast that appeared to impersonate the Portland Police Bureau’s sound truck. Demonstrators began burning an American flag they hung from the Justice Center.

Around 10:30 p.m., demonstrators began shooting commercial grade fireworks towards the Justice Center and the Federal Courthouse. Several of the demonstrators were observed carrying shields. The sound truck admonished the crowd warning them to discontinue firing fireworks and incendiary devices at the two buildings. The crowd members were warned if they continued the criminal acts, they would be subject to use of force or arrest. Despite several admonishments, many of the demonstrators continued their illegal acts.

At 10:48 p.m., demonstrators continued launching fireworks and projectiles at the Federal Courthouse. Because of this, several windows were broken and fireworks and projectiles entered the Federal Courthouse building.

To protect the life and safety of personnel both inside and outside of the Federal Court House, just after 11 p.m., a riot was declared. Officers began dispersing the crowd moving demonstrators from the closed area of Southwest Broadway to Southwest 1st Avenue, Southwest Columbia to Southwest Yamhill Street.

As officers dispersed the crowd, demonstrators threw bricks, mortars, M-80s, and other flammables towards them. To defend themselves from serious injury, officers used crowd control munitions and tear gas at this time. Lasers were directed at Officer’s eyes, which is unlawful.
Despite having moved from the closed area, demonstrators began to trickle back to Southwest 3rd Avenue, starting a large bonfire in the middle of Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street 1 a.m.

During the dispersal, numerous business windows were shattered by members of the crowd. Officers made several arrests, including one at Southwest Main Street and Broadway where a male fought with officers. Officers were able to get him in custody and recovered an illegally possessed loaded firearm and a knife.

PPB was only able to handle emergency calls only City-wide for several hours due to the need to deploy Officers downtown to assist with the riot. This impacted those requesting police service throughout the City. There was also a significant vehicle crash during the riot in North Portland involving a collision at a high rate of speed, numerous seriously injured persons, and an individual who had to be extracted from a vehicle (See prior release for details).

Between 1 and 2 a.m., some individuals launched fireworks, smoke bombs, and mortars at and near the Federal Courthouse. Crowd control munitions were deployed in the area.

The crowd continued to remain in the area and engage in riotous behaviors involving fireworks, lit fires, smashing windows, and targeting officers with dangerous projectiles. The closure area was extended to I-405 and Southwest 1 Avenue and Columbia to Burnside Streets.

Several Officers sustained injuries throughout the night, mostly due to mortars and fireworks thrown at them by members of the crowd, which exploded on or near them.

Most of the crowd was dispersed by 4:30 a.m.

Information about those arrested is still being compiled and will be made available at a later time. Over a dozen individuals were arrested.

“This is the second time in a day a riot was declared in Downtown Portland due to the activities of many that put other’s lives at risk; this is unacceptable,” said Chief Chuck Lovell. “Our officers are tired, but they are resilient. They will continue to be available every night to protect our community members as they swore an oath to do. I hope community members can support these hard working individuals and denounce the violence that has been placed upon them by those who wish to riot. The violence we have witnessed is contrary to the values of our City and the thousands who are hoping to move forward with systemic change. Our community deserves better than nightly criminal activity that destroys the value and fabric of our community.”

National Guard Activated To Protect DC Monuments

National Guard Activated To Protect DC Monuments

The DC National Guard will provide unarmed guard members to assist with additional security for monuments in Washington, DC, the National Guard Bureau said today.

A defense official says Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy signed the memo authorizing the activation of the DC National Guard forces after the National Park Police made a request for the assistance.

The official strongly emphasized that no Guard forces have yet been sent onto the streets and so far have all stayed inside their barracks. There are currently about 100 troops in the immediate Washington, DC, area. The activation could grow to 400 in total to rotate troops if needed. The Pentagon expects the guard forces to be used as a stopgap measure until the Justice Department can muster additional federal law enforcement pesonnel to take over the mission, the defense official said. Nonetheless it is expected the guard units will remain in the DC area through July 4th.

TDW:

The National Guard will soon send unarmed personnel to monuments and memorials around Washington, D.C., to help U.S. Park Police protect them.

President Trump and officials in the administration have blasted protesters for attacking national monuments and said law enforcement officials do not have enough resources to protect monuments during the protests that followed the death of George Floyd, who perished while in the custody of Minneapolis police.

That will soon change.

“The District of Columbia National Guard is responding to a request to support law enforcement officials and has dispatched unarmed personnel, with others on stand-by,” National Guard spokesman Maj. Robert Perino said in a statement to CNN. “Activated Guardsmen are expected to provide security for local monuments and critical infrastructure.”

Guard members are set to stay deployed through July 4 and their number may top 400, according to CNN. More

Unarmed is a mistake and it puts them in harm’s way. I do believe that our national treasures need to be protected but so do our law enforcement and National Guard. What is happening in America is not a form of “freedom of speech” but straight forward acts of hate crimes. Proud Americans like myself are saddened at what is happening around our country.

Germany: Statue Of Communist Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin Unveiled

Marxists unveil a life-sized controversial statue of Russian communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin in western Germany.

The city’s council took the Marxists to court in an attempt to stop the action, calling Lenin a “representative of violence, suppression, terror, and immense human suffering.” But the council’s case that the statue would “disturb the view” of a nearby historic bank was thrown out and the Marxists were given the green light to raise the monument.

TDW:

A far-left political group unveiled a new statue of Russian communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin in Western Germany over the weekend which comes as numerous statues worldwide have been toppled in recent weeks.

“The installation of Germany’s large public statue of Lenin outside the former communist East Germany was fiercely opposed by many Germans,” Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported. “The 1.3-ton, cast-iron statue was made in the former Czechoslovakia in 1957 and bought by the MLPD in an online auction for 16,000 euros ($18,000).”

Gelsenkirchen’s city council opposed the move by the far-left Marxist-Leninist Party Of Germany (MLPD) but was defeated in court because the statue was being erected on private property. The irony there is that Lenin, a communist, did not believe in the private ownership of property as his regime abolished private land ownership on his first day in office.

Lenin, head of the Bolshevik Party, rose to power during the Russian Revolution of 1917 and later went on to found the USSR, the world’s first communist nation. History provides some background. More

Vladimir Lenin’s statue in Seattle still stands strong and proud. No one has toppled it yet. But George Washington can be wrapped in our flag, spray painted and set on fire. Then ripped to the ground and urined on. Our enemies are winning without even firing a single shot.

Black Female Street Preacher Informs White Woman Why People Shouldn’t Vote For Democrats And Biden

Bevelyn Beatty let a group of ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter apologists have it! She educates them about the reality of the black community. We are conservative by nature, confused by the wickedness of the left.

“You want to see a bunch of black people go to jail by the next four years? Put Joe Biden in, watch what happens,” the street preacher said. “You want to see black men get killed substantially like you’ve never seen before? Put Joe Biden in and watch what happens.”

Daily Wire:

Speaking within the radically-left “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” in Seattle, a black female Christian street preacher informed a white woman as to why African Americans should not vote Democrat while also delivering a history lesson. “You want to see a bunch of black people go to jail by the next four years? Put Joe Biden in, watch what happens,” the street preacher said. “You want to see black men get killed substantially like you’ve never seen before? Put Joe Biden in and watch what happens.”

The preacher, Bevelyn Beatty, said to the white CHAZ resident, “I would be in the same position as you; I’m not even mad at you, baby.”

The white woman confessed, “I don’t watch any of the news, ’cause it’s all —”

Beatty interjected, “Fake news. This is the thing: I know people don’t like Trump. I understand that. But let me tell you something: if I had to pick between him and Joe Biden, I am not voting in Joe Biden. More

Love her! Bevelyn Beatty’s telling the truth. This woman is highly educated and she never loses her cool. I wish all black people would wake up and see that the Democrats are holding them back. The democrats want to keep black people from success so they keep voting Democrat and looking for government assistance.

American patriots intend to step in and fill the void left vacant by Seattle’s authorities, laying out their plans for the operation in a Facebook event.

“On July 4th, Independence Day, a coalition of patriot groups and all who want to join are going to retake the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone for America. Antifa members are illegally occupying public property and terrorizing small businesses in the neighborhood. American patriots have agreed to come together again, remove the barricades illegally obstructing traffic, and free the people in the zone.”

“You do not need a bike to join. Any and all patriots with all vehicles are coming to this event.”

“We are not going to hurt anybody, break the law, etc. We are simply going to tear down the illegal barriers on public property, clean up the mess these communist kids made, and return the police station over to Seattle Police Department control.”

Alexander Portelli who started the event said: “We’re going to support the local businesses that have contacted us or posted online about being terrorized and to dismantle these barricades put up by so-called Antifa. We also want to secure the police station and return it to Seattle PD.”

Seattle Police Chief: Rapes, Robberies And All Sorts Of Violent Acts Occurring In Autonomous Zone, Not Able To Get To Them

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best says rapes, robberies, and all sorts of violent acts have been occurring in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

“Our calls for service have more than tripled,” she told reporters. “These are responses to emergency calls — rapes, robberies, and all sorts of violent acts that have been occurring in the area that we’re not able to get to.”

This is what happens when Democrats make the call for American citizens. They always seem to side with wrong and give in to what it wants to just gain more voters.
