Portland, Oregon: Due to Portland City Council seeking the advice of Black Lives Matter in writing new police contracts, and a pro-Antifa attitude inside the Portland Police Bureau, many officers have retired early, transferred, or simply quit, resulting in 120 vacant positions within the department. More than 60 people applied for public safety specialist jobs, but only three were able to pass background checks. The rest were disqualified by drug use or dishonesty in completing the application. It is reported that 95% of Portland police officers hesitate to stop certain suspects because they don’t want to be accused of profiling and face a lawsuit. -GEG

Last month TGP reported that internal politics and a pro-antifa attitude inside the Portland Police Bureau leadership and city hall has led to an exodus of officers leaving the bureau, either retiring early or going to work for other agencies in the area. With 120 job openings, reports are now coming out that would-be new hires are failing pass the introductory background check. Bigly.

KOIN News reports:

The assistant chief told the City Commissioners that out of more than 60 people who applied for public safety specialist jobs, only 3 passed background checks. The biggest reasons for their disqualification is past drug use or dishonesty in their application.

Police applicants who have used marijuana in the past year don’t pass a PPB background check because marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

Jon Rappoport Investigates the Cult of COVID

July 10, 2020 Jon Rappoport 1

No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

Dr. Scott Jensen Accused by the State of Spreading Misinformation

July 8, 2020 Dr. Scott Jensen 3

The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]
