Video: Antifa Snuck In Concrete Chunks to Throw at Trump Supporters for Portland Event

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-3-620x357 Video: Antifa Snuck In Concrete Chunks to Throw at Trump Supporters for Portland Event Violence Trump supporters republicans Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Concrete bus antifa Allow Media Exception

Antifa’s violence is only getting worse, and a new video shows that the domestic terrorist group is willing to injure someone gravely, possibly even fatally.

In a video posted by Elijah Schaffer, you can see as Antifa members open black cases containing chunks of concrete. Members can be seen breaking up the concrete and passing out the chunks. These chunks were then thrown at the windows of busses containing Trump supporters as the busses were stuck in traffic.

The occupants on the bus were in very real danger. As you can see, one of the bus doors opened and Antifa members immediately charged forward and began attacking Trump supporters. They attempted to pull the Trump supporters out, and at one point, one Antifa member began attacking a Trump supporter with a hammer. Upon not being able to reach him, the Antifa supporter threw the hammer at the man.

The individual who threw the hammer and wearing a “beta cuck 4 lyfe” t-shirt was identified and arrested with various weapons.

This is just another attack in the long list of attacks Antifa has carried out on Trump supporters. While the group is decentralized, it has cells and operatives all over the nation working under its banner, each of them willing and ready to resort to extreme violence in order to get their way.

At this time, it’s throwing rocks and hitting people with hammers, though it won’t be long until Antifa becomes brave enough to use more efficient means of attack through firearms and other deadly weapons.

At this time, Portland’s mayor more or less refuses to do anything about Antifa and called the day’s event “largely peaceful.”

“Given the continuing movement and the number of people involved, I am grateful that this was a largely peaceful event,” Mayor Ted Wheeler told reporters. “Police did an exemplary job of de-escalating the situation, keeping the extremists on both sides separate for the most part, and of limiting interactions between individuals.”

The event was far from peaceful. As Alex Parker covered previously, various attacks other than this one were carried out and police arrested one man who they thought may have had a gun. In the end, they were forced to literally retreat from Antifa.

Things are going to get worse before they get better at this rate.

One Week Later: CNN STILL Has Not Reprimanded Chris “Fredo” Cuomo

(CNN via AP)

If you didn’t know it before, you know now that the “C” in CNN does NOT stand for CREDIBILITY.

One week after CNN host non-extraordinaire went on a verbal tirade about being called “Fredo” and threatened to throw the person that uttered that word “I’ll f–king throw you down these stairs like a f–king punk.” CNN has still not done anything about it. Last week they did offer this weak-kneed excuse for an employee of theirs that suggested he would do bodily harm on someone. by saying…

“Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

He defended himself from being called a fictional character in a movie by doing the most stereotypical thing in a movie by threatening to mess another human being up? I covered this last week here at Red State with CNN Supports Violence Being Threatened By Its Host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo.

Some may think this is just moi or others finding any excuse to “pick” on CNN but this is really not the case nor is this a small thing.

We currently in this country have a divide that seems to be growing wider by the day in terms of politics that is in large part driven by LANGUAGE. We can’t seem to agree on terms that have been universally accepted and understood for millennia.

Under NO circumstances in the history of the big blue marble that we have called Earth ( or at least from 1972 on) has the name or term “Fredo” been considered an “ethnic slur.” Never. Not once.

However, Cuomo’s reaction to this was just about as bad as you could witness and the only thing worse would have been him acting upon his rage driven mania and actually hit someone. Would CNN have acted than or just drop another drivel excuse of supporting one of their own for the cause?

As I stated in my previous article when this first happened I was not looking for Fredo to get fired being everyone has a bad day. However, this silence and hoping it goes away is a horrible way for media companies to exist and it should not be tolerated. You can’t threaten violence and not even get a slap on the wrist.

Unless of course, you work for a liberal news network that pretends to report on the news objectively.

Hyper Partisan FEC Chairwoman Loses Her Crap After Her Conspiracy Hoax Is Rejected

One of the many side alleys of the mainstream Russia Hoax was the idea that Russia was funneling cash into the NRA so the NRA could support Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. This was a baldfaced attempt to bootstrap the hoax aimed at removing President Trump from office into a way of neutering the influence of the nation’s major gun rights organization.

This leftwing fantasy began as a McClatchy article published on January 18, 2018. The article was by Greg Gordon and Peter Stone who have a rather sordid record of being in the middle of a lot of the controversial reporting on the Russia Hoax. They reported that Michael Cohen’s cell phone had been detected in Prague (false) and that the FBI was looking into how Breitbart and InfoWars were helping the Russians help Trump (also false).

One of the battalion of liberal “watchdog” groups, American Democracy Legal Fund, filed an FEC complaint on Jan. 31, 2018 citing this article as its only proof.

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. Most notably the Mueller report found nothing at all about this nonsense and the woman at Ground Zero, Maria Butina, pleaded guilty to failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. All in all, this was a transparent smear. One that seems to have been hatched by Glenn Simpson’s merry band of cretins at Fusion GPS because Simpson pushed the story to his go-to guy in Justice, Bruce Ohr. In fact, those allegations kicked off an investigation of the NRA by the FBI.

On May 28 of this year, the career lawyers in the FEC’s office of legal counsel recommended dismissing the case because it was vague, based on a single newspaper article, and provided zero details of the alleged offense.

On July 9, the FEC voted to drop the investigation. The FEC chairwoman, an anti-Trump Democrat named Ellen Weintruab, went ballistic.

Some allegations are too serious to ignore. Too serious to simply take Respondents’ denials at face value. Too serious to play games with. Yet in this matter, my colleagues ran their
usual evidence-blocking play and the Commission’s attorneys placed too much faith in the few facts Respondents put before us.

As a result, this agency barely lifted a finger to find out the truth behind one of the most blockbuster campaign finance allegations in recent memory.

In this matter, the complaint credibly alleged that a significant violation of the Act may have occurred. It was based upon a news report from a reputable news source that led with this
striking paragraph:

The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

You can read the whole screed here.

Bottom line, this high performing imbecile or low rent Democrat apparatchik (those Venn diagrams are largely the same, but, for the sake of fairness you can choose which description you think best describes Weintraub) demanded that the FEC launch an investigation based on a single article by a couple of McClatchy writers who have a tendency to grossly misrepresent the facts. And by misrepresent I mean “totally make up.”

The mischief this sort of policy would create should be obvious to anyone. It means that a single article by virtually anyone would meet the threshold for kicking off an FEC investigation even thought the career staff thought it was bogus.

What makes Weintraub’s panty wetting episode all the more egregious is that everything she wishes to investigate has already been investigated and nothing was found. Not a huge surprise as at the time of the alleged influx of Russian cash, the NRA was expecting, like the rest of us, a Hillary Clinton presidency and a highly politicized Justice Department climbing up their butt. Her play here was simply an attempt to create another corrupt investigation to replace Mueller’s, but one without any supervision by anyone. And when that failed, she’s trying to dirty up her Republican colleagues as stooges hiding Russian influence.

So shameful. So typically Democrat.

But, at least Rachel Maddow now has a reason to live

Let’s Talk About Beto – He’s Sure Talking About You…Racists

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) speaks to the crowd during the “Turn Out for Texas” concert and rally at Auditorium Shores on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018 in Austin, Texas. O’Rourke is running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his senate seat. (Photo by Laura Roberts/Invision/AP Images)

 

 

Yo’ve seen it all before: Someone runs for President and starts to teach America about itself.

Beto O’Rourke wants all of you to know about all of you; and a lot of you, as it turns out, are racist.

At Saturday night’s Third Annual Clinton Dinner in Little Rock, Arkansas, Beto said…

Well, actually, let’s look at some other things he’s said up ’til now.

From “Beto O’Rourke Assigns Blame For The El Paso Shooting“:

From “Communist Revolutionary: Privileged Millionaire Beto Vows To Destroy America’s Wealth & Privilege“:

Beto — who inherited millions and married into half a billion — promised to get rid of…himself.

From “Beto Tweets Condemnation To A President Who Doesn’t Exist & Continues His Vapid Contribution To The Politics Of Nothingness“:

Recently, he let you know what’s good enough for ya:

“There have even been some who suggested that I stay in Texas and run for Senate. But that would not be good enough for this community. That would not be good enough for El Paso. That would not be good enough for this country.”

So only he is good enough for you.

And what’s good enough for you is for you to be told you’re racist.

So let me get this straight… Let’s assume for a moment that Beto’s referring to racism against non-whites by white people.

If true, that means here’s his plan to snag the Oval Office:

Tell the minority of people they’re being unjustly attacked by A-holes. Tell the majority they’re the A-holes.

Does that sound like a good approach to getting a winning number of votes?

Maybe it is.

I guess we’ll find out.

It seems to be working for him — so far, he might have at least 3%.

Good goin’.

The Mooch and Bill Kristol Join Forces to Force Trump Off the 2020 Ballot

Noway this doesn’t succeed.

NeverTrump Godfather Bill Kristol has apparently had a discussion with Anthony Scaramucci about trying to force President Donald Trump off the ballot in 2020.

The “Never Trump” movement has a new ally: hedge fund boss Anthony Scaramucci, who was fired in 2017 after serving 11 days as communications director in President Donald Trump’s White House.

Anti-Trump pundit and veteran Republican operative Bill Kristol confirmed to CNBC in a few brief text messages that he has spoken to Scaramucci since the SkyBridge Capital founder had a public falling out with Trump this summer. Asked whether he has spoken to Scaramucci about trying to find another presidential candidate to replace Trump on the top of the GOP ticket next year, Kristol said: “Yup.”

Kristol is like the old creepy dude in his 30s who can’t hold a job down but still tries to pick up high school chicks. He just can’t accept that he’s past his prime and no longer has any influence so you get irrational, flailing attempts at gaining relevance like this.

He tried to mount a challenger to Trump in 2016 after the primary ended and failed spectacularly. He then ran the Weekly Standard, once a stalwart conservative publication, into the grave. Because failing up is always a thing among D.C. elite though, he managed to secure funding from a left-wing billionaire to start The Bulwark, which is a blog so low trafficked that there’s noway the writers there are actually making money from what they write. How long the gravy train propping them up lasts is anyone’s guess but there’s apparently no shortage of donors willing to fall for Kristol’s continued grift.

Meanwhile, Scaramucci is in the midst of a feud with the President because that’s the timeline we live in now. After being an adamant supporter of Trump for years, Scaramucci felt he needed to start securing more TV appearances. You know, for the people or something. The quickest way to do that in today’s media environment is to become part of the #Resistance. Sure enough, the press were more than happy to reward his transformation and CNN signed him on as a regular contributor the moment he started saying Trump shouldn’t be re-elected.

These are the people we are told have “principles” and are our moral betters.

To see these two characters try to join forces is comical. It’s also a plan that’s doomed to failure. Whatever level they are truly allying, there’s exactly a 0.0% chance that Donald Trump is forced out as the Republican nominee for 2020. The only way Trump isn’t on the ballot is if he chooses not to be and that’s not going to happen. Even if there was some possible master plan to knock Trump out in 2020, it certainly won’t be carried out by Bill Kristol and Anthony freaking Scaramucci.

These people are nothing by con artists desperate for their next score.

The NeverTrumpers Rediscover the Binary Election

Since 2016, it seems like there has been an effort to mainstream the argument that American elections are not binary. Not only is the idea counterintuitive (in our two party system the only possible winners are not named Evan McMullin) but is seems like that it was invented to persuade people to not vote for Donald Trump. If we go back to 2016 we can find:

The Daily Wire The Myth Of The Binary Choice
Believe it or not, this is an argument for using your vote for private virtue signaling.

Chicago Tribune (only significant because the writer is Ramesh Ponuru) You don’t have to vote for Trump or Clinton
Also an argument for using your vote for private virtue signaling.

Reason Politics ‘Is Only A Binary Choice if We Listen To the Duopoly’

Steven Hayes, then at Fox News and the Weakly Standard (not a typo) Donald Trump Is Crazy, and So Is the GOP for Embracing Him

Reason “Binary Choices” Like Trump or Clinton Are So 20th Century

The argument resurfaced at the publication directed by Charlie Three Wives the Moral Avenger, that would be The Bulwark, this past April. Here is Jonathan Last arguing that here is no binary choice Down With the ‘Binary Choice’ Nonsense. In it Last argues that the choice isn’t binary because you are voting on the future.

The reason I ask these questions is to make a point about the “binary choice” trope.

It drives me crazy when people say that an election is a “binary choice.”

When people trot out the binary choice, they’re trying to reduce the election to two defined choices whose outcomes are totally understood. They want to pretend that you know exactly what outcome you’re getting with either choice and that the outcomes stop the minute the choice is made.

In truth, an election is a choice of timelines, not people or ideologies.

And those timelines are unknowable and uncertain. They’re contingent. They stretch out into the future.

Parts of these future timelines are reasonably foreseeable: You could reasonably predict that a Clinton victory in 2016 still would have been accompanied by a Republican congressional majority. And from that you could reasonably predict that Clinton would have been a constrained chief executive.

Other parts of these timelines stretch over the horizon.

This strikes me as gibberish. If I’m in a burning car I have two choices, stay or go. It doesn’t matter that I stay because I have two toddlers in the backseat that I have to unbuckle and toss out of the car and I willingly sacrifice my life or if I’m a Bulwark staff writer on the way to work and I don’t have the ability to make a decision about what is the best form of virtue signaling. Either way I’m dead. If leave, it doesn’t matter if I run to get the fire department or stroll off to the nearest tavern to have a celebratory drink. I’m alive. In fact, the whole Flight 93 Election essay was premised on the idea that we don’t know what will happen under Trump.

2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.

Now, with Trump appearing to be the favorite in 2020, suddenly the Bulwark gang is rediscovering the binary election. This is from noted expert on all things expert-able, Tom Nichols.

A binary election, thanks to Trump.

This election is, like every other election for president, binary. It doesn’t matter what you do, the outcome is binary. You can decide that you don’t want to participate in that election, either by staying hope or a protest vote, but that doesn’t change the nature of the contest. There are only two people on the ballot with a chance to be president. You not voting for one of them only means that give up your vote for president.

In Tweet Denouncing Israel’s Decision, Biden Leaves out Fact That Obama Admin Once Made a Similar Decision

Joe Biden has enjoyed the privilege of consistently being the frontrunner in the vast majority of polling regarding Democratic candidates running for president – even when he wasn’t officially a candidate. But in spite of that, one of the most persistent criticisms of him from the progressive left is that he isn’t “woke” enough.

He found that out the hard way after Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) disingenuously broadsided him at the first debate about his praising working with segregationist Senators back in the 70s in order to get things done, and for his stance at the time on busing. Though he ultimately recovered from her attack, the questions about his “wokeness” have still lingered.

On Thursday, in the midst of the wave of criticisms being directed at Israel from mostly Democrats over the country’s decision to bar BDS proponents Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) entry into their country on security grounds, Biden pounced and seized on the opportunity to win over some of his “woke” skeptics.

Here’s what he tweeted:

Biden left out that something similar also happened under the Obama/Biden administration, where the administration did a little entry barring of their own:

Hot Air‘s Karen Townsend explains in detail:

In that case, the person denied a visa to enter the United States to attend a conference was Michael Ben Ari. The reason given was that, according to the State Department, Ben Ari had ties to a terrorist group. This idea centered around Ben Ari’s conservative views and actions. He follows Kahanism ideology which means he believes that Arabs shouldn’t be living in Israel and shouldn’t have voting rights in Israel. The Kach party has been banned by the Israeli government and the U.S. State Department has labeled it a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

Michael Ben Ari’s denial of entry would fall into the same category as Tlaib’s since both were denied due to their political statements. Yet Biden only voiced objection to one and that happened in the course of his Democrat primary campaign. Biden didn’t personally make the decision in 2012, of course, but I am surprised he weighed in as he did, given the dreadful relationship the Obama administration had with Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu in particular.

Whether Biden either conveniently forgot or really didn’t remember the Ben Ari denial of entry or not, his tweet denouncing Israel’s decision may not be enough for The Squad and their defenders for a couple of reasons:

1) Biden didn’t tweet about the issue fast enough for some on the left (though he posted on the issue around the same time Tlaib did and within an hour of when Omar did):

2) He noted in his tweet that he had always been a staunch supporter of Israel, which is an absolute no-no in the fever swamps of the activist left.

It would seem that matter how hard he tries, Biden just cannot be “woke” enough for the progressive left. Whether or not that ultimately works to his advantage in 2020 as more people begin to tire of The Squad’s obvious political games remains to be seen.

U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., listens to a constituent in Wixom, Mich., Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

As Thomas LaDuke wrote Saturday, liberal comedian/TV talk show host Bill Maher absolutely ripped into Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), their supporters, the media, and the BDS movement Friday night for their phony outrage over Israel announcing last Thursday they were barring the two Congresswomen entry into the country.

For background, here’s a recap of how the segment went down, via Fox News:

“It’s a bulls— purity test, BDS is a bulls— purity test by people who want to appear ‘woke’ but actually slept through history class,” Maher said, drawing loud cheers from the audience. “It’s predicated on this notion … I think it’s very shallow thinking that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and Palestinians are mostly brown, so they must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this ‘completely peaceful people’ found themselves occupied. Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”

The HBO star quoted BDS movement founder Omar Barghouti, who said, “No Palestinian — rational Palestinian, not a sellout Palestinian — will ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.”

“So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all,” Maher told the panel. “Somehow this side never gets represented in the American media. It’s very odd.”

[…]

“I see why [Omar and Tlaib] don’t get a hero’s welcome,” he added.

Maher continued discussing the BDS issue with the three panelists, which included the Daily Beast‘s Betsy Woodruff, New York Times journalist Carl Hulse and Never Trumper Rick Wilson. Hulse and Wilson are normally not shy about expressing their opinions whether you like it or not, but they showed uncharacteristic restraint for most of this particular segment. Odd.

Watch below:

Tlaib, who loves to warn people who disagree with her to shut-up, demanded a boycott of Maher’s show in response because of course:

“Woke” liberals like Justice Democrats proponent Cenk Uygur are enraged over Maher calling BDS for what it is:

Twitter users read Tlaib the riot act over her lies and her approach to disagreement:

I frequently disagree with Maher. He’s wrong probably 95% of the time. But on the BDS movement, he was spot on. Tlaib can continue to try and shame people on the left and right who dare to expose the poisonous anti-Semitic rhetoric she and Omar use, but that will only make those same people louder.

    Sky News Blames “Colonization” for Homosexuality Being Illegal In Muslim Countries

    If you want a story that illustrates the stupidity of inter-sectional wokeness, here you go.

    Sky News shared this report via their YouTube channel, which mostly focuses on Nigeria. In it, they attempt to make the case that criminalization of homosexuality was a product of colonization by Western powers.

    Of course, if you actually watch the video, you quickly learn that all the places where homosexuality is punishable by death are Muslim countries operating under some form of Sharia law. The video even spends about 20 seconds on that fact, mentioning that in Northern Nigeria, Sharia law is what is dictating such inhumane punishments.

    Despite that, they keep coming back to the idea that old penal codes from the colonial era are the real problem here. This is ahistorical nonsense.

    Yes, colonial powers during that time period, along with just about every other society on earth at the time, did not approve of homosexuality. But to try to pretend that old laws from the 1800s are the reason Muslim countries have the death penalty for homosexuality is ridiculous.

    Further, most (if not nearly all) of the African cultures in questions had strong traditions against homosexuality long before the colonial period. There’s a reason that Europe is accepting of homosexuality and Africans generally aren’t, and it’s not because Africans were somehow still bound to laws put in place by the French a hundred years ago. At about the 8 minute mark of the video, they finally show a map of all the countries in Africa where homosexuality is still a crime. The vast majority are Muslim countries.

    Look, I’ve got no problem with Sky News or anyone else pointing out that it’s wrong for countries to persecute people for being gay. What I do have a problem with is them peeing on my leg and telling me it’s raining by blaming “colonization” for it. The primary driver of anti-gay laws in Africa, including all laws dictating the death penalty, is the Muslim religion. Period. Why was that not the focus of their report?

    The answer is because Muslims are at the top of the inter-sectional pyramid for some reason. It’s that simple.

    CNN’s Chris Cillizza Calls Buying Alaska a Mistake Just to Disagree With President Trump

    This is one of those stories that is axiomatic of media coverage of the Trump White House. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal posted an unsourced story claiming that President Trump wanted to buy Greenland. I say unsourced because “according to people familiar with the discussion” really isn’t a source. Were this CNN, one could safely bet that it was simply fabricated. From there we entered a day of speculation on the subject. Much of it relying upon pig ignorance and a dislike of President Trump.

    One of the prime contenders was CNN’s Chris Cillizza. This is from a Vox quality explainer on territorial purchases. In fact, it might very well surpass any of the dumbf***ery that Vox has written over the years.

    It didn’t work out well? The 50th state did not work out well?

    Since then CNN has corrected the language to read

    It was heavily criticized at the time — and has gone down as “Seward’s Folly” in the history books.

    Even with the correction it gives an erroneous impression. “Seward’s Folly” has actually become to mean something small-minded people thought was a bad idea but were humiliated with the outcome in a fairly short period of time.

    One struggles to see how a mistake like this was even possible. Alaska’s immense wealth in natural resources and strategic location make an immense contribution to the US and have since 1867. One struggles, that is, unless you consider the effects of a highly communicable condition, in this case TDS, which has infected all of CNN’s alleged “talent” and their production workers. President Trump supposedly said something (which is actually a very good idea if it could be pulled off) and the kneejerk reaction by Cillizza or Lemon or Cuomo or [your favorite CNN anchor] is to dismiss it as a bad idea and immediately cobble together some sort of bullsh** narrative to prove the point.
