Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler proposed ordering the Portland Police to “stand down” during the rise in violent left-wing riots in the city in late July, when rioters shifted away from the Hatfield Federal Courthouse to the county jail and Portland Police buildings.
Wheeler had texted a top aide, Sonia Schmanski, arguing that the plan was “high risk” but claiming that the city had “nothing to lose.” Wheeler’s assessment of the situation differs considerably with the eyewitness accounts of Portland small businesses and community members, who have suffered tens of millions of dollars in property damages as a result of the riots.
The left-wing mayor was ultimately convinced that removing the police from the riots would be a bad idea, when he was reminded that the ANTIFA militants were beginning to target buildings that were in residential neighborhoods.
“I was persuaded that a complete withdrawal, even for one evening to test the ability to completely deescalate the situation, would be a risk that was too great,” he said in an interview last week. “We could not risk the people who were in the immediate vicinity.”
Wheeler had previously claimed that the violent riots were only the result of the federal law enforcement securing the Hatfield courthouse. The ongoing operations of Portland Police to contain criminal activity all but disprove his earlier solution, with ANTIFA militants continuing to engage in criminal activity on a nightly basis.
Portland District Attorney Mike Schmidt has pledged to drop any and all criminal charges against the overwhelming majority of rioters arrested by the Portland police, creating a de facto immunity for ANTIFA to commit a wide range of misdemeanor and felony offenses on a nightly basis. The Oregon State Police withdrew from the chaotic city shortly after Schmidt’s announcement, having lost faith in the judicial system to appropriately prosecute riot crimes.
Democrats Brought ‘Dominion’ Software Into Michigan with Approval of Anti-Trump Republican Gov. Rick Snyder
It wasn’t Gretchen Whitmer who approved Dominion.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on the behavior of Lathrup Village, Mich. Mayor Mykale “Kelly” Garrett and the rest of the Garrett Crime Family since the election.
Garrett was responsible for brokering a $25 million contract to bring Dominion into the state of Michigan back in 2017 while was serving as a Democrat official in Oakland County. We have also covered her family’s nefarious actions as part of a Democrat political machine that has dominated corrupt Detroit-area politics for over a generation.
However, it is worth noting that the contract to bring Dominion into the state of Michigan was not enacted by reviled Democrat Gov. Gretchen “Grandma Killer” Whitmer. It was enacted under the administration of her predecessor, Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican Never Trumper who supported Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 and then Joe Biden for president in 2020.
Big League Politics reported on how Snyder went public with his Biden support, encouraging Republicans to switch sides to betray their country and vote Biden in the 2020 election. Hilariously, the effort backfired when Democrats became enraged that the Biden campaign was touting the endorsement of the infamous Flint water villain:
Liberal activists are up in arms at Joe Biden’s presidential campaign for pushing the endorsement of former Michigan governor Rick Snyder, who is blamed by the Left for the Flint water crisis.
Last week, Snyder penned an op/ed in the Detroit News in which he officially endorsed Biden’s presidential candidacy.
“I will continue to support and stand up for Republican policies and values, and support Republican candidates, but I will not support Donald Trump for reelection,” Snyder wrote.
“I had the opportunity to interact with Mr. Biden when he served as vice president. My interactions were always constructive and respectful. He has shown the desire to heal a deeply divided nation; has demonstrated strong moral character and empathy; and he seems willing to listen to people who have different perspectives from his own,” he continued.
“While I am endorsing Joe Biden for president, I am still a Republican who also will be publicly supporting Republican candidates at the local, state and federal level,” Snyder added.
Democrat leaders in the state of Michigan jumped on the news and widely promoted Snyder’s endorsement…
While establishment Democrats may be happy about the endorsement, the left-wing activists who Biden needs on his side to win in November are enraged by the news.
“You were the one who defenestrated local governments, many of them representing Black citizens, a policy that led directly to the catastrophe in Flint,” wrote Charles Pierce in Esquire with regards to Snyder.
“For a guy who’s trying to win over the environmental movement and progressives more broadly, I gotta say, this seems like a bad move for Biden. What’s the point of touting your dubious commitment to racial equality and environmental policy if you’re going to drool over the endorsement of a guy who presided over a historic case of environmental injustice?” wrote Dharna Noor in Gizmodo.
“There remain plenty of actual Democrats, however, who feel like Biden is doing little to court them. Maybe he should focus on them,” wrote Lee DeVito of the left-wing Metro Times publication in Detroit.
Republican politicians severely dropped the ball on protecting electoral integrity before the election, which is probably why so many GOP officials are happy to sweep the fraud under the rug and move on as quickly as possible while certifying Biden’s vote steal.
