With the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse under nightly siege from violent radicals, and Portland’s police hard-pressed to protect it, President Trump sent in federal agents to secure the building.

The reaction from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:

“The use of stormtroopers under the guise of law and order is a tactic that is not appropriate to our country in any way.”

Majority Whip James Clyburn endorsed the speaker’s equating of the U.S. law enforcement officers to Ernst Rohm’s SA thugs being deployed to do the dirty work of Adolph Hitler.

“Nobody asked the federal government to come into Portland. Nobody asked them to come to Seattle,” ranted Clyburn. “This is something that’s made up of whole cloth by this administration as an excuse for sending in stormtroopers to incite the people.”

Clyburn had earlier compared the U.S. officers sent to Portland to Heinrich Himmler’s Nazi secret police: “This president and this attorney general seem to be doing everything they possibly can to impose Gestapo activities on local communities, and this is what I’ve been warning about for a long time.”

His Gestapo comparison recalls Sen. Abe Ribicoff’s denunciation of the Chicago police of Mayor Richard J. Daley during the 1968 Democratic National Convention, after police clashed with radicals in Grant Park: “With George McGovern, we wouldn’t have Gestapo tactics in the streets of Chicago!”

What do the men and women of the FBI, DEA, ICE, DHS, CBP and the U.S. Marshals Service think of congressional leaders who equate them with Nazi stormtroopers and the Gestapo?

Outraged that Trump sent in federal agents to protect a building they had under siege for weeks, the Portland mob came out in even greater numbers and rioted through the weekend. Saturday night, there were solidarity riots with Portland in Seattle, Oakland, Austin, Richmond, and other cities.

Consider the depth of hatred of Trump that would cause leaders of the Democratic Party to compare U.S. law enforcement to Nazis.

Still, to date, no apologies have been heard.

Yet, as police are again being cursed and showered with debris, it is hard to see how this country reunites, and around what, no matter which party prevails in November.

In addition to the reigniting of protests and riots in urban centers there has come, in tandem with demands to “defund the police,” a surge in violent crime. Last week, Trump offered some staggering statistics:

“In New York City, over 300 people were shot in the last month alone, a 277 … percent increase over the same period of a year ago. Murders this year have spiked 27 percent in Philadelphia and 94 percent in Minneapolis compared to the same period in 2019.

ORDER IT NOW

“Perhaps no citizens have suffered more from the menace of violent crime than the wonderful people of Chicago … At least 414 people have been murdered in the city this year, a roughly 50 percent increase over last year. More than 1,900 people have been shot. These are numbers that aren’t even to be believed.”

As Black Lives Matter protests revive, ostensibly for greater justice for black folks, a vastly disproportionate number of victims of these urban shootings and killings are black, as are a disproportionate number of the criminals doing the shooting and killing.

The New York Times suggests that a new “Silent Majority” of 2020, unlike Richard Nixon’s Silent Majority of 1969, backs the protesters and their causes.

A dissent: While the country was disgusted and outraged at George Floyd’s death from that cop kneeling on his neck, and supported the protests and the calls for police reform, two months of leftist rampages have taken their toll.

When the protests turned into riots, when the looting and arson began, when the statues began to be pulled down, when the rampages went on and on for weeks and months after Floyd’s death, support began to wane. And it is dissipating quickly.

The country is not going to sit still for three more months of this. At some point soon, America is going to say: Enough is enough.

Moreover, Trump has turned a permanent presidential spotlight on a real outrage: The shootings and killings that go on year in and year out, and are now escalating, especially in poor black neighborhoods of major cities, and are accepted as normal by the same liberal Democrats who have misruled those cities for decades.

Trump has put this issue on the table for the indefinite future. And the ferocity of the liberal reaction testifies to the validity of the issue and the terror of the left that a consistent stand for law and order — and with the cops who guarantee it against the mobs that threaten it — might turn the tide in Middle America back to where it naturally resides.

The majority of Americans believe, and rightly so, that this is a good country. And they will eventually tune out radicals who visibly hate its heroes and history and have on offer nothing but their own inchoate rage.

    On an international level it is an imperial destabilizing junket, and all those attributes are coming home to roost. I don’t see much good in that, but I do understand that Americans are conditioned into true believers of exceptionalism. It will be a good and wonderful country all the way down to its’ final resting place next to the Titanic.

Note that the rioters are the counter-cultural SJW left, fully supported by the New York Times, Washington Post and the rest of the Jewish MSM.

  5. Another strategic mistake by Trump & Associates.

    He should have let things keep deteriorating while loudly proclaiming that he will send in help if their brain dead mayors / governors ask for it. By ignoring the local politicians, he opens himself up to the Hitler comparison.

    The man is just plain stupid.

  6. @Nick J

    Nice sentiment, but Biff’s right.

    The population has been conditioned to believe that all the rules don’t apply to the shining beacon on the hill. They have to be convinced they are wrong with something they can’t ignore. That would be the death of the Dollar or a war that produces prodigious holes in the ground near them.

    Short of a 2×4 over the head, the US population won’t notice what the Fed Gov is up to as that’s been the reality for decades.

    “Back the Blue” is anti-White when the Blue backs the Jew.

    “The men and women of the FBI, DEA, ICE, DHS, CBP and the U.S. Marshals Service” (in addition to the rest of the federal law enforcement apparatus) have been too busy chasing fake “White Nationalist terrorists” to protect our people, cities and borders. And Trump has cheered them on.

    If Trump ordered the FBI to retake the streets from the criminals and anarchists tomorrow, they would disobey him. The FBI in particular is an entirely corrupt, subversive and failed American institution in thrall to anti-White Jewish power and its goyish collaborators on the Left and Right alike.

    Trump won’t do that largely because Trump a dishonest hack who won in 2016 playing on White sentiments and resentments he in no way shared or intended to implement – but that’s another post.

    Pat, you’ve spent years telling Whites to look to their own interests in formulating American policy and righteously warning that America was no longer a nation but instead an economic zone filled with warring tribes.

    I for one took your advice – and it led me to Notice that, among other things, American law enforcement no longer enforces laws to protect White American interests. It’s become an instrument of what your old friend Sam Francis called “anarcho-tyranny.”

    Sam was years ahead of his time, as usual.

    And so were you when you rose above nostalgic patriotism and residual partisanship to tell us what was really going on.

    Trump’s biggest problem in that area is that the active duty military brass, beginning with SecDef Esper and Joint Chiefs Chairman Milley, have already indicated that they are opposed to sending in the military to defuse an internal rebellion. Trump may be afraid to impose the Insurrection Act out of fear that they will refuse his orders. After all, they must keep their forces at the ready to do whatever Israel and Global Capitalism demands – no matter that the country is imploding from within.

    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst

    Say it ain’t so, Pat! In an article where you blow up a b.s. liberal narrative, you repeat a b.s. liberal narrative? You should know better, but I certainly hope that you don’t, because that would mean you’re throwing that cop under the bus to serve a greater cause, just like most of the other conservative pundits have.

    Floyd was dying before he even got out of the car. When the cops asked him why he was frothing at the mouth, he told them he had been “hoopin’”

    What is “hoopin’” you ask? Look it up, Pat.

  19. Verity says:

    Mr. Buchanan’s assertion that George Floyd’ s death ” came from that cop kneeling on his neck” puts the lie to everything Buchanan says he believes in. To my mind, just on principle, Chauvin is innocent and should be treated as such. A trial may change that but that is yet to come. An assessment of the entire incident and the official coroner’s report certainly provide doubt that Chauvin killed Floyd. Chauvin has been tried in the media. Can he get a fair trial in America? I doubt it.

Then they dressed the White House guards up in those fruity nutcracker costumes. You got to admit, that was really funny.

    Even if things die down it’s only a matter of time before the Jewish led left devises a way to set the nation aflame again especially if they see political advantage in it.

    A dissent: While the country was disgusted and outraged at George Floyd’s death from that cop kneeling on his neck,

    This canard from PB is Fox News’ propaganda line, that this unarguably evil thug Floyd died from a knee on his neck and that his mythical apotheosis created from outright lies about the key events is of an ontological significance almost on a par with that other demonstrable fraud created from outright lies called the Holocaust. None of the current rioting and mayhem could possibly have gotten past the first night in Minneapolis without the Jewish-controlled MSM and kosher social media’s straightforward incitement. Sickening, that PB would stoop to Sean Hannity’s level of groveling before his Jewish paymasters’ script to sanctify evil in the person of George Floyd for the purpose, not of persuading blacks to vote Republican, but to further the Jews’ war of genocide against all Whites, from Australia to South Africa, Europe, and North America, and do it under the guise of being a patriot no less. The two of them are about as inspiring as J. Alfred Prufrock when it comes to leadership in this time of immanent genocide like that going on in South Africa and coming America’s way if the DNC/MSM and social media have their way.

    Trump’s attacks on ‘left-wing cultural revolution’ are an anti-Semitic dogwhistle […] The president’s Rushmore address was not good news for the Jews. While Trump did not, of course, mention Jews explicitly during his speech, I could not help but hear in his warnings against “years of extreme indoctrination and bias in education, journalism, and other cultural institutions,” echoes of the “cultural Marxism” conspiracy theory that has taken hold on the American far-right in recent years.[…] [A]s the Southern Poverty Law Center explains, the conspiracy theory took hold of a hidden group of foreign émigré Jewish intellectuals who “devised an unorthodox form of Marxism that took aim at American society’s culture, rather than its economic system… to try to convince mainstream Americans that white ethnic pride is bad, that sexual liberation is good, and that supposedly traditional American values — Christianity, ‘family values,’ and so on — are reactionary and bigoted.”

    The Jews are the authority on Nazism and so anyone who the majority of Jews dislike is a declared a Nazi, and can confidently be called such by any gentile, case closed. Proof, if proof were needed, that most Jews could not care less about Israel, because Trump is the greatest friend in the White House that Israel has ever had or could have. He gave them recognition of Jerusalem, and in a second rem he might even let them expel the Palestinians under the cover of a general war in the Middle East that he could start by attacking Iran. But he is not going to be re-elected because the Jews are more dialed into the traditional elites and their reference to Wall Street, for who China is a sacred cow, And a cash one.

    Rather than waste time with hopeless Democrats, shouldn’t you be praising Trump for decisive militarism? Perhaps lobbying for a comprehensive emergency law and Gleichschaltung?

    Suppose not. You know better after Spiro Agnew’s ‘Silent Majority’ nonsense (uttered while quietly cashing bribes -poor fellow). Did you know about it? Always wondered.

    “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!.” (24 Jan 2020)

    “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!” (24 Feb 2020)

    “They [Democrats] tried the impeachment hoax. This [COVID-19] is their new hoax.” (28 Feb 2020 SC rally)

    Tell us Pat, after 150,000+ American deaths, is COVID-19 still the Democrat’s “new hoax”? Be specific. Do you agree with President Trump’s rhetoric? Did you write a 900-word column about that? No, suppose not. Why queer the money pitch.

    Won’t ask you to evaluate Trump’s performance as “a wartime president” (DJT 18 Mar 2020) against COVID-19. That would be unfair. You pen DC op-eds in the slap-and-tickle battleground of partisan untruth.

    Facts (27 Jul 2020) speak volumes. USA (4.25% of global population) has 26.5% of world COVID cases and 23% of fatalities on Trump’s “wartime” watch. Given Taiwan’s rates, the USA would suffer 6,352 (versus 4,312,841) COVID cases and 97 (versus 149,145) deaths.

    Sure, Democrats stupidly played the Nazi card. What’s your excuse for ‘Wartime COVID-19 Trump’, Pat? Give us a hint.

    DC op-eds are a great tit-for-tat money game, scripted by both sides of a dual-party establishment seeking influence and self-perpetuation. Win an election, gorge yourself at the trough, reward donors with cabinet posts and ambassadorships. Lose an election, check your DC rolodex, reach out to winners, pander to out-of-influence oligarchs, write incendiary columns trashing those in power, search for donors that crave ambassadorships or cabinet posts, win the next election, rinse and repeat.

    Op-ed author goal? Become as wealthy and amoral as those to whom they pander? Give us a hint.

    Patrick, I thought that conservatives/Republicans preferred matters to be dealt with locally. Yet, there is an insistence by AG Barr to get involved. NOTICE a pattern–federal law enforcement is especially focusing on Democratic cities in battleground/purple states: FL (Jacksonville), MI (Detroit), PA (Philadelphia) MO (KC), OH (Cleveland), and WI (Milwaukee). Of course, as one (in)famous urban Negro mayoress stated, “If those agents are here to actually work in partnership on support of gun violence and violent cases, plugging into existing infrastructure federal agents, not trying to play police in our streets, then that’s something different and that may add value”.

    But why didn’t Trump make this a priority last year or four years ago if he was deathly concerned about “law and order” and reducing crime rates during his Administration? Furthermore, why did federal agents withdraw from Seattle and Portland, two hotbeds of leftism?
