Nolte: Several Democrat-Run Cities Face Police Recruiting 'Crisis'

The far-left Axios reports “Police recruiting suffers as morale hits new lows,” citing the Democrat-run cities of Charlotte, Minneapolis, Des Moines, and Denver as the most notable examples. Charlotte, North Carolina, which has been run exclusively by Democrats for 22 years, says policing applications are down 26 percent compared to the first four months of last year. Des Moines, Iowa, which has been run exclusively by Democrats for nearly a quarter century, saw a 50 percent drop in police applicants. Fayetteville, Arkansas, a city with a non-partisan office but a mayor who’s currently serving his fourth four-year term, “had only 10 applicants qualify for interviews compared to what is typically about 40, due to a smaller applicant pool[.]” Minneapolis, Minnesota, where Democrats have been in charge for nearly 50 years, reports: “There are far fewer police officers patrolling the streets of Minneapolis so far this year than city officials anticipated. Members of a City Council committee Thursday approved $6.4 million for the city’s Police Department to hire dozens more officers this year.” Further, the city’s own data shows the number of officers plummeted from 817 to just 638. Denver, Colorado, where Democrats have been in charge for

CNN Host W. Kamau Bell Downplays Antifa Violence: 'People Get Hurt, Property Gets Damaged'

Antifa violence accounts for millions in property damage and during a segment of his CNN show United Shades of America, standup comedian and CNN host W. Kamau Bell downplayed the radical left-wing group’s anarchic criminality. Bell dismissed the violent tactics routinely used by the radical organization and concluded that sometimes “people get hurt, property gets damaged, and things get confusing.” Bell, who has hosted the series since 2016, said white Americans dealt with “complicated feelings about the police for the first time” last year. “The right-wing saw that, and they did what they do: They pulled a bait-and-switch, and returned to an old boogeyman: Antifa,” he said, mentioning images of individuals “clad in black fighting in the streets” and concluding it to be “an easy idea to sell to people who say things like, ‘Blue Lives Matter.’” “Ain’t nobody blue,” Bell said as he continued to downplay Antifa’s violence. “‘Antifa’ is short for anti-fascist,” he explained. “Look, this fighting for democracy and against fascism thing has always been a messy business. And, yes, people get hurt, property gets damaged, and things get confusing,” Bell said,

Portland Antifa Attack BLM-Supporting Grocery, War Memorial: 'F**k Thanksgiving'

An Antifa group in Portland, Oregon, called for a Thanksgiving Eve attack on “symbols and structures of colonialism and capitalism.” The incited direct action led to the destruction and vandalism of a veterans’ war memorial and downtown businesses. PNY Youth Liberation Front, a group described as an Antifa group by independent journalist Andy Ngo, tweeted a call for a “decentralized anti-colonial day of action” on Thanksgiving Eve. The message began, “F**k Thanksgiving, f**k Black Friday!” The Youth Liberation Front, an antifa group, was one of several who incited violence in Portland to oppose Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/o4HlkvKaZZ — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) November 27, 2020 On Thanksgiving, the group tweeted a “Portland Reportback” showing a photo of a toppled and defaced veterans’ war memorial statue located in Lone Fir Cemetery.

AG Barr on Michael Reinoehl's Killing: 'Our Cities Are Safer with this Violent Agitator Removed'

Attorney General William Barr on Friday lauded law enforcement after the killing of self-professed Portland Antifa member and murder suspect Michael Forest Reinoehl, saying American cities are safer with him off the streets. “Last Saturday, Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson was shot and killed amid the continuing violence in Portland. Local authorities subsequently obtained an arrest warrant for Michael Forest Reinoehl, a self-described Antifa member suspected of the alleged murder,” Barr said in a statement. “Reinoehl fled to Washington State, where he was located yesterday by members of a fugitive task force led by the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI, and state and local law enforcement partners. When Reinoehl attempted to escape arrest and produced a firearm, he was shot and killed by law enforcement officers.” “The tracking down of Reinoehl — a dangerous fugitive, admitted Antifa member, and suspected murderer — is a significant accomplishment in the ongoing effort to restore law and order to Portland and other cities,” he added. “I applaud the outstanding cooperation among federal, state, and local law enforcement, particularly the fugitive task force team that located Reinoehl and prevented him from escaping justice.  The streets of our cities are safer with this violent agitator removed, and the actions that

Nolte: Antifa/Black Lives Matter Move Terror Campaign to Residential Areas

If you are paying attention to the ongoing Antifa/Black Lives Matter terror campaigns in Democrat-run cities, you might have noticed that these left-wing marauders have begun to move into residential areas. To protect Joe Biden, who has refused to condemn nearly three months of left-wing terror campaigns, the corporate media are ignoring and/or downplaying the relentless rioting, looting, arson, and assaults in the Democrat-run cities of Portland and Seattle. Just a few hours ago, the Democrat-run city of Chicago was added to this list due to five hours of highly-organized marauding along the Windy City’s legendary Magnificent Mile. As of this writing, the chaos is so bad, downtown has been closed, public transportation has been shut off, both bridges into downtown have been raised, freeway off-ramps have been closed. Anyone familiar with Chicago traffic can only imagine the nightmare Monday morning commuters are facing as they try to get to work. As bad as all of this is, thanks to the real journalists covering this left-wing terror campaign (like the indispensable Andy Ngo), and citizen journalists, I’ve noticed that more and more residential areas are now under attack. Up till now, the terrorists — and for good reason — have

Three Federal Officers May Not Recover Sight After Portland Rioters' Laser Attacks

Three federal officers may have been permanently blinded by lasers protesters used Monday in Portland, according to Federal Protective Service (FPS) Deputy Director of Operations Richard Cline. At a press conference Tuesday, Cline said over 1,000 people surrounded the Hatfield Federal Courthouse that night and began removing plywood coverings from the windows and throwing objects, some of which were incendiary, at officers inside. The crowd also vandalized the building with spray paint, blocked the adjacent intersections, and set several fires, the Associated Press (AP) article noted. The report continued: “When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” Cline said. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.” The federal officers responded by deploying pepper balls and tear gas, the article said, adding that FPS later purchased anti-laser glasses for the officers to prevent eye injuries. Journalist Andy Ngo tweeted video footage Tuesday of rioters removing plywood from the federal courthouse building’s windows and trying to break the glass: Rioters were successful in tearing off part of the protective
