I’ve been talking with various law enforcement here in Portland. Morale very low. Chance they will walk off after next Mayorial election in November? I do not know, but that number is significantly higher than zero.
Current Mayor, Ted Wheeler, is weak and indecisive. Too weak to clean up this town.
Challenger, Sarah Iannarone, overtly sympathizes with the terror group euphemistically known as ANTIFA. I was at their BLM/ANTIFA protest Saturday night where they called for mass arson and genocide against white people, demanding, “White people! We got your attention now!?” (Answer: Yes.)
During my Monday interview with John Batchelor and Gordon Chang, we talked offline about John’s experiences from the 1960s counterculture. John cautioned that he knows people who were arrested and it “ruined their lives.” John said this numerous times: “Ruined their lives.”
John Batchelor told me Monday that people who were found guilty of serious charges — they could not get good jobs. Their entire lives. Could not buy homes or property without co-signers. Long list of slammed doors. This is no game.
Further — organizations like Ku Klux Klan and ANTIFA should be categorized as terror organizations. They are terror organizations.
As someone who has had a front row seat on terrorist hunting right up to its bloody conclusions on countless gunfights and other unhappy endings, I guarantee any ANTIFA or KKK reading this that you don’t want to be in this category. You WILL be found. All that historical metadata, emails, facial recognition, and a thousand other clues will be instantly crunched by the big computers and you will be known instantly. You are not smart enough to be an effective terrorist in the United States. You will be caught.
Likewise: those people funding ANTIFA and Ku Klux Klan are equally in danger. You can lose everything you own. Your peril could not be higher. All those historical transactions will tumble in clear view.
Have a nice day.
