Unreported – Violence Continues Across America


Truth will eventually out – and it is outing. No, not talking about FBI holding Biden Junior’s computer – with exculpatory evidence – throughout impeachment, or Pelosi holding America’s economy hostage for more socialist program starts.  I am talking about the persistence of violence – that mainstream media continues not to report.

Let us be clear:  A Princeton study in September indicated 48 of America’s top 50 cities, and 74 of the top 100, have been hit with riots. See, https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/09/06/data-48-of-americas-50-largest-cities-hit-by-black-lives-matter-riots/. The Department of Justice is investigating Antifa, BLM and funders for this riot violence. See, https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2020/09/01/dhs-chief-doj-is-targeting-and-investigating-antifa-and-blm-leaders-and-those-funding-the-riots-n875753; and https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/law-enforcement-plays-catch-stop-violence-radical-groups-protests-n1220486.

Meantime, police nationwide are being degraded, defunded, and dismantled by local Democrat leaders.  See, e.g., www.forbes.com/sites/jemimamcevoy/2020/08/13/at-least-13-cities-are-defunding-their-police-departments/; www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/07/22/gretchen-whitmer-defunds-police-cuts-115-million-from-state-cops-replaces-portion-with-fed/; and https://www.foxnews.com/politics/what-happened-to-defund-the-police.

Police demoralization in Democrat-led cities and states is profound – record numbers retiring, their lifetime of service and personal sacrifice unappreciated.  See, e.g., https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2020/september/demoralized-and-demonized-police-departments-face-workforce-crisis-as-officers-leave-in-droves; and

www.denverpost.com/2020/08/18/colorado-police-resign-retire-reform-law/; and https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/victoria-taft/2020/08/08/exclusive-portland-cops-are-getting-the-hell-out-of-antifastan-and-retiring-in-record-numbers-n765835; and https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/16/us/us-police-officers-resigning/index.html.

Not surprisingly, beleaguered police unions – abandoned by Democrats coast to coast, many of which have never been political – are almost universally supporting President Trump. See, e.g.,   https://nypost.com/2020/07/16/national-association-of-police-organizations-endorses-trump/; and https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fraternal-order-of-police-endorses-trump.

Seasoned law enforcement and public policy experts know the truth:  The cost of defunding, dismantling, and demoralizing police nationally could be enormous, not least for minority communities.  According to Harvard research, “thousands of black lives” could be lost if police departments are downgraded. See, https://www.thecollegefix.com/harvard-professors-research-defunding-the-police-could-cost-thousands-of-black-lives/.

The biggest news is that, even in October, major violence continues to roil American cities and gradually spread to suburbs.  Mainstream media do not want to report this story, but like body bags from Vietnam the story cannot be suppressed – not the way the Biden emails have been.

Specifically, cities coast to coast continue to face nightly violence, apparently organized, funded, and creating concentric circles of damage, discouragement, fear, and hopelessness as property is destroyed, public safety placed at risk, and police pull back.  Examples are numerous, yet not making national news.  See, e.g., https://www.reflector.com/opinion/editorial_columnists/riots-plague-of-violence-ignored-by-media/article_61bb8af6-7fc2-5d91-a97a-f8966fc1de51.html.

This month, violence has beset countless cities – from Seattle and San Francisco to Chicago, yet little is said about it.  Only in city-by-city accounts, does one discern the larger picture.  See, e.g., https://www.dailywire.com/news/riots-breakout-again-in-seattle-starbucks-cops-attacked-with-explosives-police-say; https://www.wtsp.com/article/news/local/protests/protesters-meet-under-burnside-bridge/283-977d7710-a41a-4fde-9f9a-86a5b2e85bc6;  https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2020/10/12/21510454/chicago-weekend-shootings-gun-violence-october-9-12-2020; https://www.newsweek.com/riots-not-protests-media-gaslighting-you-opinion-1521450; https://www.reflector.com/opinion/editorial_columnists/riots-plague-of-violence-ignored-by-media/article_61bb8af6-7fc2-5d91-a97a-f8966fc1de51.html;

As Winston Church once said: “The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end there it is.”  In parallel, eroding law and order is incontrovertible.  National Democrats may deny or attack persistent lawlessness in cities, and communities from Rochester, New York to Kenosha, Wisconsin, but in the end – there it is.

And what does persistent, organized, funded, politically stoked, now unprovoked violence across Democrat-led cities and states mean?  The answer is organized forces are at work stirring that violence.

On one hand, criminals capitalize on opportunities, weakness, indecision, and public policy errors – especially when left uncorrected or worse, reinforced by continuous bad decision-making.

When national leaders fail to forcefully weigh in, things quickly get worse.  While President Trump and Vice President Pence have denounced right-wing violence, Joe Biden and Kamila Harris delayed condemning – by name – violence tied to Antifa and BLM, as well as to foreign funded groups, including those linked to China. See, e.g., https://www.redstate.com/nick-arama/2020/09/30/biden-denies-the-existence-of-antifa-and-refuses-to-condemn-them-americans-respond/; https://thefederalist.com/2020/09/16/chinese-organization-with-communist-party-ties-funds-black-lives-matter-ventures/.

Somewhat belatedly, in September, Biden noted he opposes “violence across the board.”  Why the delay?  Because Biden needs the far left of his increasingly unbalanced party to win in November, does not want to alienate violent protestors linked to perceived Democrat voting blocks, has longstanding ties with Democrat mayors, governors and members of Congress who are antagonistic toward police – and needs them for his ground game.

Finally, he is as close as close gets – to China.  If there is any doubt, consult the most recent revelations from his son’s late-to-emerge hard drive – and ask the basic question:  If one is profiting – and one’s family is profiting – from questionable, potentially criminal links to a communist country’s leadership, who know better than American voters how close you are to them, how can you call them out for funding, reinforcing, or trumpeting US riots?  You cannot.

Accordingly, do not expect any 11th-hour Biden-Harris epiphany – before or after the election.  The far left – and violence pouring from an organized, funded movement – is part of the modern Democratic party, the machine that Biden hopes will elect him.  That may not have been how the young Biden started, but that is how he has ended up, tolerant of and beholden to the far left.

The seminal point:  Urban – and suburban – violence is not over.  It has not ended, just because a failed strategy of allowing it and pinning it on Trump failed.  Nor is it over because media ignore it.  It continues, in part for its own ends, in part because Democrat leaders were reluctant to condemn it, in part because they permit it.  Police are universally demoralized, which is why they support Trump, hope on his victory.  We should too.  Leftist – and reactive rightist – violence has no place in America.  In November, we can make that clear.  We must.

I began reading a book today that is describing the Democratic agenda to a tee. “The Devil and Karl Marx” by Paul Kengor. So far it is a very good book but, the similarities of what is happening in our country today is frightening. Why doesn’t Pelosi give relief stimulus to the suffering and desperate? One answer could be Pelosi eats out of a $25,000 refrigerator and SHE eats $15.00 a pint gourmet ice cream. And I might add, in a safe, gated and policed community. I wish the Democratic voters would open their eyes to the true Nancy Pelosi,… Read more »

Keep up the good work Amac! We need to get the word out to open the eyes of people who are asleep and do not have a clue what is going on under their own noses. We have a country to save! Stay alert and be the watchman on the wall.

If Biden is elected there will be no more Constitution. Our beloved country will become lost. In my own humble opinion, the Democrats will not stop until we are full blown Socialist. If you value your freedoms vote Republican down the line. We need The House, the Senate and Trump back in the White house. Then as Jeannie said, “PRAY”

The question has arisen how these seditionists are being funded. You need look no further than George Soros who has been undermining the United States since he has ben here. He is a naturalized citizen whose citizenship should be stripped from him and then deported with sanctions so he cannot continue his funding of socialist type organizations in our country. There are other groups too who should be investigated and shut down for supporting criminal activities across our country. As they say when questions arise on how these groups keep going month after month, “follow the money”.

Sounds like these democratic run cities caused their own problems, though they’ll be the last to see it.

Violence in search of a revolution kicked up in the Obama administration. Now we hear “If we don’t get what we want (undefined), we will burn it down.” One question: how is violence winning any votes for anyone? The only benefit from years and years of misbehavior is that police have a chance to learn what to expect and get ready to do their best to keep the peace.
An army of citizens favors the police.
I expect the criminals will eventually be surprised by how hard it is for them to win.

VIOLENCE IS GOING TO CONTINUE AND WILL EXPAND WHEN POTUS GETS REELECTED. WITH THE MSM, CURRENTLY IT IS ELECTION NOT INSURRECTION! The DOJ as in Dumb Old Joke is doing what? How much information and proof do they need? This problem is targeted. How is it that Vancouver,WA(right across the river) from Portland,OR. is pretty darn quiet?? I have said and still say that there is a revolution coming and it will be painful. MONEY MONEY EVERYWHERE AND NONE FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT. MAGA/KAF/KAG TRUMP/PENCE 2020

Might be a good article if I could read the referenced articles. But they want me to subscribe I order to read. I understand their reasons, but I can’t subscribe to everything. It’s frustrating when you link an article that only subscribers can read.

The big question is – WHO – is funding the riots? The FBI should be able to figure this one out pretty fast and those responsible need to spend many years in jail.

Unfortunately, the title seems to be correct, local residents may be aware of conditions in their own cities, but no one’s presenting us with a comprehensive picture of national violence and destruction. I’m guessing no one will until after the election. The mainstream media have taken sides, and the side they took isn’t ours.

BTW, if it were the “seminal point” it would have been at the beginning, not the end.

Having so much violence occurring on a regular basis in many of our cities, serves as a strong reminder that the Democratic Party is basically being lead by a bunch of hoodlums and thugs! Biden and Harris do not mind seeing innocent, hardworking Americans losing everything, as long as a significant chunk of our population votes against President Trump. In addition, if Biden/Harris are so cold and calculating, just to win the election, why would their actual administrations be anything but incompetent and ruthless once in power? Every rational citizen should be asking such a question!

There is one other comment I wish to make for those who do not think that the Democrat Party has adopted a socialist platform. I refer you to the 1912 platform of Eugene Debs presidential candidate of the Socialist Party. Socialists are very patient people politically. They have been working since FDR’s days to implement the particulars of the Socialist platform. It seems to have come to a head with the election of Barack Obama and is now carrying over into the 2020 election. If they are successful this year 1912 will have finally become a reality and there will… Read more »

November 4th will see the largest amount of violence in America in our nation’s history. The Leftists have planned this moment for years.
