I think it is time to starting shooting these rioters and looters (not the peaceful)
in the foot.     Then let them limp off of the battlefield and go home.

Can we agree on that?

No.
First of all, I do not agree with you classifying protesters as 'rioters'.
The majority of the protests have been peaceful (see my last post).
Secondly, there is no 'looting' going on right now.
And lastly, we do not shoot people who may be committing a crime.
This is NOT the wild West.
We have something called due process.

Discrediting Dr. Fauci.
Local TV stations across the country set to air discredited 'Plandemic' researcher's conspiracy theory about Fauci.

New York (CNN Business) Local television stations owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group are set to air a conspiracy theory over the weekend that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top expert on infectious diseases, was responsible for the creation of the coronavirus.

The baseless conspiracy theory is set to air on stations across the country in a segment during the program "America This Week" hosted by Eric Bolling.

The show, which is posted online before it is broadcast over the weekend, is distributed to Sinclair Broadcast Group's network of local television stations, one of the largest in the country.

A survey by Pew Research Group earlier this year showed that local news was a vital source of information on the coronavirus for many Americans, and more trusted than the media overall.

In this week's episode of the show, Bolling spoke with Judy Mikovits, the medical researcher featured in the discredited "Plandemic" video that went viral earlier this year and which was banned from platforms such as Facebook and YouTube.

Throughout the segment, the on-screen graphic read, "DID DR. FAUCI CREATE COVID-19?"

Bolling also spoke with Mikovits' attorney, Larry Klayman, a right-wing lawyer who also has a history of pushing misinformation and representing conspiracy theorists.

During the interview Mikovits told Bolling that Fauci had over the past decade "manufactured" and shipped coronaviruses to Wuhan, China, which became the original epicenter of the current outbreak.

Bolling noted that this was a "hefty claim," but did not meaningfully challenge Mikovits and allowed her to continue making her case.

Klayman, who did not respond to a request for comment, also pushed conspiracy theories about the coronavirus.

He said the "origins" of the virus were in the United States.

Bolling didn't meaningfully challenge Klayman either.

That's the same Eric Bolling who was fired from FOX News for sexual harassment.

3 cops in Portland maybe permanently blinded by the lasers that were shot into
their eyes.   Every night there is more looting, burning and the throwing of bricks, rocks,
and frozen water bottles.  Hundreds of cops have been injured.  Billions of dollars of
damage to local businesses(owned by Dems).  Molotov **** and bottle rockets
thrown at the Federal Courthouse.  Doz. of windows knocked out.   Even Ted Wheeler
had to flee for his life!!

You're the one pointing to a squirrel Precious.

You ignore the thousands of people peacefully protesting police brutality and concentrate only on the few causing violence.

And BTW, Trump's goons were sent into Portland to incite more of that violence so that he could get some video of the confrontations to use in his campaign.

FOX News shows you those videos on a loop, but I'm sure they never show you video of the thousand of peaceful protesters.

It's all a **** show you gaping *******.
As usual Trump is manipulating reality in order to deflect from the real issue and to benefit him politically.
And you fall for it every **** time.

A few cases? How about many thousands, you psychopathic liar.

And the peaceful ones are irrelevant to the central point; the violent assault on US civilization by the radical left.

Which even most of the peaceful ones support.

Portland.....a view from inside.
After-hours chaos at Portland protests overshadows Black Lives Matter message: ‘Our movement has been co-opted' 

It was almost 11 p.m. Wednesday when the crackle and flash of fireworks erupted at the federal courthouse in downtown Portland.

For some of the Black activists across the street at the county’s Justice Center, the disruption was a signal to wrap up for the night.

The volatile scene beginning to play out a block away was distracting the crowd.

Michael Richard, 38, the final speaker, closed with a lament:

“What’s going on over there is a white movement … that’s taking over Black Lives Matter.

”The rest of the night would be marked by fire, chaos and a show of force by federal officers.

For weeks, Portland activists, many of them young and Black, trained the attention of Oregon’s political leaders, policymakers and the public on police brutality against Black Oregonians and racial inequities in the criminal justice system.

Reaction was swift: The Portland police chief resigned and was succeeded by a veteran supervisor who is Black.

The Portland City Council slashed the police budget by millions.

The Multnomah County district attorney stepped down five months early to make room for his reform-minded successor.

The governor called a special legislative session to address demands for police accountability.

Portland police and city leaders also openly struggled with how to respond to a nightly ritual of havoc wrought by a smaller core of demonstrators.

Then the protest dynamic shifted dramatically about two weeks ago after one of the federal officers deployed by President Trump to quell the unrest shot an unarmed man in the face with an impact munition.

Now rage over the federal government’s response to the after-hours strife in Portland is fueling the protests and threatens to overshadow the message of racial equality that spurred thousands of Oregonians to flood the streets at the start.

“A spectacle” is how the Rev. E.D. Mondaine described the spasm of late-night violence that has become the norm.

He blamed not only disruptive protesters but also presidential interference, which he said is carefully calculated to divert attention.

“Our movement has been co-opted and I am angry about it,” said Mondaine, president of the Portland NAACP.

“Once again the status quo is finding a way to interrupt this revolution, this moment.

“We have to begin to organize more people to talk about the distractors,” he said.

“These are privileged children of the status quo dancing on the stages that were designed to lift up the voices of people like (civil rights leader) C.T. Vivian and (U.S. Rep) John Lewis, the stages that were built to lift up the voice of justice and equality and inclusion.

”Others, like Danialle James, a North Portland resident and a consistent presence since the protests began on May 27, said the evolving landscape poses a dilemma:

On the one hand, the federal government’s tactics, encouraged by Trump, have reinvigorated the protests in Portland.

On the other, the focus has drifted from police brutality against Black people.

“It’s turned toward, ‘Let’s get these feds out of here now’ more than George Floyd per se,” James said.

“We need to shift the focus back to why we were out there originally,” she said.

The protests began after the killing of Floyd, a Black man, in the custody of the Minneapolis police.

Floyd died after a white police officer ignored bystander shouts to take his knee off Floyd’s neck as Floyd repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe.

His death, captured on citizen video, sparked days of unrest in Minneapolis and across the country.

In Portland, those protests have stretched on for weeks.

Sunday marks the 60th consecutive day.

About three weeks ago, the effort seemed to be winding down.

The number of protesters had significantly dwindled.

To Anthony Blake, 47, of Portland, a regular at the protests, it felt like the closing of a chapter.

Then the federal government got involved and, he said, “opened up a whole new book.

”The turning point came two weeks ago when a deputy U.S. marshal fired on an unarmed demonstrator, Donavan La Bella, 26, leaving him with severe head injuries.

La Bella’s injury -- followed by federal agents’ arrest of a demonstrator who said he was detained without probable cause – only amplified the protests.

“The feds’ thing is 50 percent of why a lot of people are down there now,” Blake said.

“The other 50 percent are still down there because the demands are not being met.

”Even before the involvement of federal law enforcement, the nights have tended to unfold in predictable ways: Black activists lead the crowds in front of the Justice Center with chants such as “Black lives matter” and “No justice, no peace.”

Often they exhort the crowd to refrain from violence.

Then at some point well after dark, a faction of protesters that Blake referred to as “the graveyard shift,” largely young and white, turns its attention to the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse.

Over the course of the past week, demonstrators have carried out a range of destructive acts: They’ve set bonfires in the courthouse portico and pried plywood off the windows and doors, tossed a grill and garbage over the fence around the building, pointed lasers at officers and lit fireworks with concussive blasts that can be felt for blocks.

Almost on cue, officers with U.S. Marshals Service and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, many in camouflage and tactical gear, at some point emerge from the courthouse and sweep the streets using clouds of tear gas, pepper balls and other impact munitions.

Blake and other Black activists said that while they don’t take part in violence, they understand why others do.

“It takes mayhem and chaos to get a point across,” Blake said.

“You can only knock on a door so long.

”People lashing out during the protests “have legitimate anger, but I would respectfully disagree with them,” said Eric Ward, a longtime civil rights strategist and executive director of the Western States Center, a Portland-based organization that monitors right-wing extremism.

“I would say they are applying that anger in a wrong way,” Ward said.

“Pulling down the boards of the federal courthouse or the Justice Center doesn’t stop police from brutalizing Black and Latino and Indigenous people on the streets of Portland.

”Said Myke Tavarres, 28, who lives in Portland and also has protested since the beginning: “As much as we want to be out there peacefully protesting, I can understand why they want to burn down the city that doesn’t show them love or doesn’t show them respect.”

“I can understand and even empathize,” said Tavarres, “but it definitely takes away from the message that I am trying to put out there as far as positivity.

”Racial equality remains his singular focus, he said.

“As a Black person, this isn’t a game,” he said.

“I will always be Black.

A police officer has the chance to take off the uniform.

This is more than just a protest. This is more than just a movement. This is my life.”

Complicating the situation on the street is the sheer range of interest groups flocking to the protest each night.

Protesters in some cases have conflicting approaches.

When Mayor Ted Wheeler showed up late Wednesday, some greeted him with jeers, while others wanted to hear him speak.

Among those on the ground: Black Lives Matter activists and their supporters, civil rights activists and anti-fascist activists or antifa, a movement with deep roots in the city’s robust protest culture.

Added to the combustible mix are other regulars on Portland’s protest scene: anarchists and other militant leftists intent on a physical confrontation with police.

It is unclear which faction is driving the late-night mayhem.

Police and federal officials have suggested it appears “organized.

”Some are motivated by their opposition to Trump, concerns about police brutality, racial injustice, free speech, overreach by the federal government or they’re curious about an event that’s captured the country’s attention.

“If you are outside of Portland, Oregon, what is happening right now has to be completely confusing because there are so many different factions who are mobilized around so many different issues,” said Ward, the civil rights strategist.

Returning the focus to the movement’s original message of racial equality requires discipline, organization and leadership, he said.

“I would say to activists at the end of the day: What is it that you have achieved to stop the killing of unarmed Black people?” Ward said.

“That is the question everyone on the street should be asking themselves as to every action they take out there.”

Fahiym Acuay, who goes by the name Mac Smiff, said Trump effectively snatched the spotlight in recent weeks and as a result took political pressure off local and state leaders to act on activists’ police reform agenda.

But nothing has changed for the 39-year-old Portlander, who has taken part in the protests since they began.

His message remains the same: Defund Portland police.

“We all know why we are here,” he said.

“We don’t need to have our energy wrangled back.”

James agreed. She said she’s heartened by the size of the crowds spurred by fury over the federal response.

But she too keeps her sights trained on racial equality and police brutality.

As for how long she’ll continue to show up downtown each night: “As long as I am Black and alive,” she said, “and until we get change.”

And there we have it.
"The peaceful ones are irrelevant."
That is exactly my point.
By concentrating on the few protesters committing violence or vandalism, you can just dismiss why the protests started to begin with, so you don't have to deal with it.

This is exactly why Trump sent in his secret police.
He knew that it would provoke violent confrontations that would deflect from the real issue of police brutality.

He put the hook in your mouth and you are allowing him to reel you in.

Sending his Gestapo into Portland has done nothing to make things any better.
It has only inflamed the situation.
The protests in Portland have grown exponentially and are now spreading to other cities.

Good job Trumpty Dumpty.
