    The Justice Dept really needs to get to the bottom of who's funding and organizing these groups, then go after them mercilessly with every tool that the government has at their disposal. Innocent citizens have been way more patient than should ever be expected to put an end to this violent Leftwing insurrection attempt.

    Edit:

    Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., on Sunday called for a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into the funding of recent violent protests that have sprung up across the country, echoing statements made by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who was recently attacked while with his wife during the Republican National Convention.

    Yep, and it was announced that Ken Buck and Rand Paul are now leading the charge as of today. Go get 'em, Ken and Rand!

    Well, it will HAVE to be the Justice Dept. because the local DA in Portland will not prosecute these criminals. In fact, he frees them without bail as fast as they're arrested. It's an absolute dereliction of his sworn duty but he's so veiled in Progressive politics he excuses himself. Law and order is a trivial talking point to him.

    Trump should send 'em a note: "Sorry, we defunded all of those. You're on your own."

    Seriously, anybody want to waste our public monies on Portland?

    Yup. Cut them off, then build a wall around the city like the movie "Escape From New York". If they don't want to be a part of the U.S., let's make it happen. We can even round up and send more anti-American rioters their way when they expose themselves.

    Personally, I have zero empathy for these cities. They voted these shitty leaders in, now they can enjoy the benefits of that decision.

    NTM, the more they burn, the better Trump’s chances increase.

    The GOP abandoned the cities and the voters have no choice, a strong GOP would pull the politics toward the center and to more moderate politicians. We a grassroots, common sense, solutions based approach to competing in the cities.

    You can be as common sense as you want to be, but the Left refuses to engage in good faith, let alone play fair. Republicans and conservatives as a whole don't believe in stooping to the tactics of the Left, which is almost always zero sum game to them. How do you bring common sense back to people who behave this way?

    In Portland that would be Ted Wheeler.

    This from a local Portland news clip:

    On July 5 at one of the demonstrations, Reinoehl was cited at 2:10 a.m. in the 700 block of Southwest Main Street on allegations of possessing a loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest and interfering with police
    He was given a date to appear in court later that month, but the allegations were dropped on July 30 with a “no complaint,” according to court records. The documents don’t indicate why prosecutors decided not to pursue the accusations. Reinoehl spent no time behind bars.

    Every leftist person in power is guilty of dereliction of duty.
    They work for the people not the other way around. They also should be held accountable.

    True. RINOs are the issue. Another take on Reagan’s quip....I didn’t leave the Republican party, they left me.
    The American Party( my pick for new movement) is what is needed today. The party of Trump, Ratcliffe, Gohmert, Cotton.
    The party of McStain, Romney, Ryan, Graham is dead.
    Time to move forward.

    Portland is a puppet for Antifa. It has the best and most organized group in the US being run and funded (Soros) by its off shore leaders in Netherlands or Belgium. If City leaders are not controlling the issues them let them deal with it, do not waste my Fed Tax dollars on a looser leadership in these poorly run states and cities.

    Poorly run Cities & States need to grow a pair as realize their poor decisions are ruining people lives. Don't bail them out and citizens need to wake up and vote the idiots out of office.

    They don't think they are. I guarantee every single one of them believes they are making things better.

    Exactly. I saw some silly video posted on another site (by a liberal) of Republicans making disparaging comments about DT. Was meant to show how even Republicans have said critical things of DT. Of course they did. DT exposed them for the RINO s they were.
    We elected those people to take conservative values to DC. For the ones who didn't fully end up BO's lap dog, they at least allowed themselves to be swayed and controlled at times. They ended up not representing us like they said they would. And DT was the message, delivered straight to their doorsteps. When DT called them out on it and embarrassed them, they got pissy in return.

    Well, some of them have returned to a degree, only because they know the alternative is far worse. Even if they still don't like DT for the truths he told on them.

    Those who haven't, whatever. If they want to open the gates for a duo who will continue to keep black people down, and ensure the deaths of more babies, even up to birth practically (and a lot of whom are black babies), they are the ones who have to look at themselves in the mirror.

    It's almost dead. We need to get Nikki Haley the hell away from anything that can raise her profile. No way should Trump bring her back into the administration--in any capacity.
