CHOP HAS BEEN CHOPPED

NEWS UPDATE: CHOP has been chopped. After degenerating from an alleged “festival atmosphere” and “second summer of love” into a dangerous, lawless war zone within days, the area of Seattle “occupied” by leftist radicals was finally cleared out Wednesday morning.

Mayor Jenny Durkan must’ve gotten tired of competing with Bill DeBlasio for the title of America’s Worst Mayor because she finally issued the order police had been waiting for. They moved and gave the big, tough social justice “warriors” eight minutes to clear out (yes, that’s how quickly this could have ended if the Mayor had ever done her job.) Among those who resisted, there were 31 arrests. Let’s hope that for probably the first time in their lives, they will discover what it means to face real consequences for their rotten behavior.

CHOP was a disaster and a massive dereliction of the city’s duty to protect its citizens. It was also an unwarranted tragedy that resulted in robberies, assaults and other violent crimes, three serious injuries from shootings, and the shooting deaths of two black teenagers - Lorenzo Anderson Jr. and Antonio Mays Jr. – by people who claimed they launched this radical Romper Room with no police allowed to protest the unjust killing of black people by police.

At the link is a post-mortem on what happened in Seattle and how (the first step was the mistake of electing a far-left government.) As bad as the entire episode was, it did serve one purpose: seldom has there been a more horrifying but useful illustration of how swiftly civilization can spiral into anarchy when you do something as stupid as abolishing the police and giving power to a bunch of socialist undergrads.

HANDY LINKS

Petition opposing the renaming of John Wayne Airport in Orange County:

To remind you of why you need to sign that petition, here are 40 quotes from John Wayne, some of them amazingly timely, like, “I’m responsible only for what I say, not what you understand” and “Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid.”

Joe Biden has a new campaign slogan: “Vote for Biden and Pay Higher Taxes!” Okay, that’s not an official slogan, but it is now his official policy, as if we didn’t already know it.

If the mainstream media really believe that black voices should be heard, why are they trying to suppress Larry Elder’s new documentary “Uncle Tom: An Oral History of the American Black Conservative” that dismantles the BLM narrative?

The New York Times has jumped on the Idiot Train in denouncing Mt. Rushmore as a monument to white supremacy built on land stolen from Native Americans. Which prompted the observation that the New York Times building is on land stolen from Native Americans for $24 in junk jewelry, so they should immediately sell it and give the money to the Lenape Tribe as reparations.

Must-See Video: You’ll enjoy this, I promise.

READERS: OUR COUNTRY IS OUT OF CONTROL

For eight days we polled my newsletter readers, asking you to weigh in on this question:

Do you think the country is out of control?

After 8 days, 26,001 readers have responded with the following results:

6.4% NO

3.5% UNDECIDED

90.1% YES

HILLARY SNARLS FROM HER HOLE

Once again proving she has zero self-awareness, Hillary “Benghazi” Clinton attacks President Trump for allegedly not paying attention to warnings and allowing terrorists to kill Americans in the Middle East. Only difference: Trump didn’t actually do that.

FIGHTING CANCELLATION

With so many people being "canceled" for refusing to mouth self-incriminating left Newspeak, this is a report from someone who fought back in academia and won (at least for now.) It's a Must-Read for its "Know Thy Enemy" value.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY (KJV)

    Fox News showed the arrests of rioters on their show it needed to show me that the FBI is on the job brining the Thugs to the court to be charged. I am hopeful this continues daily Thousands of thugs need to be brought to Justice and the local communities need to quicken the pace in arrests; If the communities do not arrest these thugs the Federal government FBI need to clean it up and defunding the local mayors and Governors offices should be retroactive to june 1st 2020 and the funds taken should be used to finish the round up of these criminals. The Mayors and Governors should be removed they are complicit in the order for police to stand down and charged for aiding and being a part in a criminal act.

    Too bad a young man had to die before this happened. This should have happened long ago. Actually, it never should have been allowed to happen.

    Has anybody asked the Democrats why the statues and monuments and everything else that they consider racist were not an issue during the Obama years?

    "....giving power to a bunch of socialist undergrads." President Trump has declared 'Antifa' a "terrorist organization," it is past time to notify that 'Black Lives Matter' "Marxist outfit" that they too are a 'terrorist organization!'

    When the head of BLM, as well as some of its members, DECLARES they are a Marxist/Socialist group that is anti-American how is it NOT logical to SHUT THEM DOWN? At their best, they incite riots and animus directed toward the police. At their worst, they contribute to 'murder!' How many more 'innocent blacks' are now dead since the Floyd murder, murdered by the mob?

    Mike everybody thought $24 for New York was swindling the Indians but seeing what New York has become I'm not sure that they don't owe the Dutch $23.98 in change !!

    Just a comment on kneeling athletes: Announcer at game venue, "Ladies & Gentlemen (covers all imagined genders) Please, Bow your heads, Kneel, give grace, or (whatever your faith requires) to the almighty (inclusive to all supreme beings) with this Prayer." Then I suggest a somewhat generic prayer modeled after the National Anthem or Pledge of Allegiance. Therefore whatever position the player/athlete assumes (It) still gets to honor our great nation.

    As a former Seattle resident (I grew up and raised my kids there.) I say (Finally) Hooray! (I moved out of the place when it was about to finally die)

    Will that seattle mayor even be heels responsible for her roll in this whole thing, she is the one who pulled police back, she is the one who encouraged this thing by calling it a summer of love,by installing concrete barriers, by putting porta pottys. She denined protection to people who lived there and have business there, she should be held responsible for all of this
    The mother and father of those teenage boys hold responsible for there death for even allowing them there, when I was that age if I had even crossed my mind to even go somewhere like that I would not have been able to set for a week.

    Looks like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden have the same convenient, democratic dementia that allows them to forget their own pasts, and blame others for actions they themselves have been responsible for.

    I so enjoy reading what you have to say each day. I also enjoy your TV program. You are always right on and say the things I feel but not able to say. God bless you! Keep doing what you're doing.

    Hilary has so many traits to dislike so many, all she has left is to act ignorant undignified and with out a moral conscious but I can not control the hate I have for her how she was complicit in the murder of Americans in Benghazi cannot forgive the Bastard for that. I know this brings her happiness, for millions of people that feel like me. Are the citizens of Seattle New York Mlps and communities under the Marxist left being held hostage by a few of it leaders maybe it time to Roger Stone their homes drag them out like the FBI did to Roger and his wife mobs broke into private property without a shot fired by the police 10000 people might be able to drag Mayors and Governors who basically murdered the elderly down to the police station for questions of why they ordered the police to stand down and why people that should have been quarantined allowed to leave and spread the virus when facilities were built to contain and care for the ill. The elderly never had protection never really had a chance the only thing missing was the loading them in railroad box cars and sent to their final destination. Perhaps the Smithsonian should build a memorial for them that died in the Nursing homes. Yes this action upsets me.

    Well, at least the young would be robber cried out to God......maybe, sort of. Let's hope that he reflects and truly cries out to God who takes away all our sins. However, there may be consequences for stupid behavior down here from others that may not be so forgiving. This video proves John Wayne's quote is spot on.

    When I clicked on the link to prevent changing the OC airport name from John Wayne, it diverted to Change.org. Isn't this a left wing website? I think so, and they are getting your subscribers emails. If I'm wrong, I apologize, but I have always that it is extremely liberal.
