Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan blamed President Donald Trump for the rising wave of criminal activity and political violence surfacing in her city, claiming that the President had somehow agitated Seattle residents to riot, destroy small businesses, and attack the police.
Seattle police made 45 arrests during a weekend riot on Saturday, in which ANTIFA-linked militants set fires to residential buildings and launched fireworks in a direct attack on a police station. The Democratic city is abolishing its county jail, and crime has increased by 525% since the creation of the since-failed anarchist commune known as CHAZ (Capital Hill Autonomous Zone) in the city’s downtown.
When asked about responsibility for the criminal activity by CNN’s Erin Burnett Monday, the mayor merely blamed Trump and the Department of Homeland Security.
“We don’t need the help that the president’s offering, and, in fact, I think the president’s actions have directly escalated and were responsible for what happened this weekend. Many people who were interviewed by media said they came to the protest because of what’s happening in Portland. The protest itself was billed as something in solidarity with Portland. And so, we are — today, I requested the Department of Homeland Security — since there was no actions directed against the federal properties here — to ask them to remove the standby team that they have.”
Durkan went on to claim DHS operations protecting federal facilities against left-wing militants were a taste of martial law.
“I hate to say it, Erin, but I really believe that we are seeing the dry run for martial law. This is a president that is using law enforcement and federal forces for political purposes, and that should be chilling to every American.”
Seattle residents have already initiated a recall effort against Durkan- for the dismantling of the CHAZ after four murders took place in the left-wing community.
Husband of Los Angeles Prosecutor Jackie Lacey Charged with Assaulting Black Lives Matter Protestors
David Lacey pulled a gun on BLM protestors.
The husband of Democratic Los Angeles County prosecutor Jackie Lacey is being charged with three misdemeanors stemming from his armed confrontation of several Black Lives Matter protestors who arrived at his house to demand a “community meeting” with Lacey .
The charging documents were obtained by Politico and published on Tuesday. Xavier Becerra, the California Attorney General, is charging David Lacey with three misdemeanor counts of assault with a firearm against three people.
I’m front of DA Jackie Lacey’s house for that community meeting she promised with the @BLMLA crew. Rang her bell to invite her.

David Lacey showed exceptionally poor judgement during the incident, confronting the Los Angeles BLM protestors with his finger on the trigger of a firearm. The protestors don’t appear to have been engaging in illegal activity- it’s legal to solicit most residences through ringing on the doorbell if you aren’t asked to leave, although the protestors remained after David Lacey told them to “get off of my porch.”
David Lacey’s attorney, Samuel Tyre, released a statement expressing his disapproval that Becerra chose to file cirminal charges in the incident.
“My client and I are disappointed that the Attorney General’s Office felt that the conduct at issue amounted to criminal behavior. We disagree entirely with their assessment, but we have the utmost faith in the justice system, and we are confident that the correct result will be reached.
At this time we are not going to comment on the facts of the case, except to say that my client’s human instinct is forever and always to protect his wife and his family and to keep them safe from physical harm. We look forward to all relevant facts coming to light.”
Elected officials of Democratic cities and communities seem entirely inept at responding to criticism of their leadership from Black Lives Matter.
