Portland was the site of more violence caused by Antifa on Saturday by spraying the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys demonstrators with pepper spray. A fight, with both sides reportedly using clubs and fists, only lasted minutes before police stepped in, dressed in riot gear and firing non-lethal rounds of pepper balls.
Last week, Antifa protesters bashed a car with clubs when the driver tried to escape from the intersection that the leftist group had shut down. Mayor Ted Wheeler, a liberal who also serves as the city’s police commissioner, defended a decision to have police stand down during the incident, saying that police must watch out for their own safety, while at the same time, he tried to claim that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”
Hillary Clinton and Maxine Waters have called for incivility and confrontation, and Antifa is happy to oblige.
Street anarchy and mob violence on American streets is getting wilder by the day.
As OregonLive.com reports, the demonstration billed as a march for “law and order” in the streets of Portland descended into chaos as rival political factions broke into bloody brawls downtown Saturday night.
Members of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer and their black-clad adversaries, known as antifa, used bear spray, bare fists and batons to thrash each other outside Kelly’s Olympian, a popular bar on Southwest Washington Street.
As The American Mirror reports, Patriot Prayer is advocating for the removal of Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has defended the actions of his police department, which stood down as agitators blocked traffic and intimidated residents this week. Antifa, apparently, is backing the mayor.
“I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.”
Even so, Mr. Wheeler insisted that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”
Mr. Wheeler, who also holds the title of police commissioner, took a swipe at recent unflattering news coverage, such as a Fox News story headlined, “Mob rule? Leftist protesters take over Portland street.”
“I’m willing to take criticism all day long from Fox News,” he said. “But I’m not willing to accept criticism from Fox News of the men and women of the Portland Police Bureau.”
The mayor argued that law enforcement is in a no-win situation.
“This is the story of Goldilocks and the two bears. The porridge is either too hot or it’s too cold,” Mr. Wheeler told reporters. “At any given moment in this city, the police are criticized for being heavy-handed and intervening too quickly, or they’re being criticized for being standoffish and not intervening quickly enough.”
Doing something to protect the tax-paying citizens who fund your entire career seems like a place to start, rather than worry about the political optics of any intervention.

California is one of the worse offenders as the state automatically registers people to vote and gives driver’s licenses to non-citizens, including illegal aliens. The DMV has acknowledged making 105,000 registration errors since Motor Voter began on April 23, 2018. Some customers were registered to the wrong party.
The Democrats are setting up a scam system that they are pushing to go national, following the California model of automatically registering everyone to vote when they get a driver’s license, and then adding to the corruption by allowing them to vote from home with their phone.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about.
