VIOLENCE FLARED UP IN
A CONFRONTATION BETWEEN EXTREME RIGHT
AND LEFT WING GROUPS.
THIS WAS THE SCENE IN DOWNTOWN PORTLAND,
OREGON.
A MASSIVE POLICE PRESENCE TO KEEP THE
PEACE BETWEEN WARRING
FACTIONS. THE CITY HAD BEEN
PLANNING ITS RESPONSE
FOR WEEKS. BRACING FOR THE WORST.
AND NOW THE PRESIDENT
IS WEIGHING IN. NBC’S STEVE PATTERSON
IS IN THE MIDDLE OF IT
ALL. STEVE?

>>JOE BRIGGS WAS BILLED AS A SHOW OF
FORCE AGAINST THE

RULING THAT THEIR
CLIENT DIED BY SUICIDE BY HANGING WRITING IT

THE DEFENSE TEAM FULLY INTENDS TO CONDUCT ITS
OWN INDEPENDENT AND
COMPLETE INVESTIGATION.
THEY’RE ALSO PREPARING
TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION WITH VIDEO THAT SHOWS
MOMENTS BEFORE
EPSTEIN’S DEATH. >>THE METROPOLITAN
CORRECTIONAL CENTER
WILL RESPOND TO SUBPOENAS BUT THEY
REQUIRE A WRITTEN
AUTHORIZATION FROM THE CLIENT.
IN THIS CASE, THAT’S A
LITTLE COMPLEX BECAUSE THE CLIENT IS NO
LONGER LIVING.
>>FRIDAY’S AUTOPSY DOESN’T DIMINISH THE
PROBE INTO HOW THIS
COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO A HIGH PROFILE INMATE
WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN
CHECKED BY GUARDS EVERY 30 MINUTES.

NEW YORK TIMES”
INTERVIEWED LAW ENFORCEMENT, LAWYERS
AND BUREAU OF PRISON
STAFF WHO SPOKE ABOUT EPSTEIN’S HABITS AND
ATTEMPTS TO EXTEND HIS
WEALTH EVEN BEHIND BARS.

ALMOST EVERY DAY WITH HIS LAWYERS, USUALLY
IT WOULD BE 12 HOURS
WITH HIS LAWYERS. AND THEN HE WAS TRYING

PROTECTION. >>SOURCES TELLING THE

NOT BE MANY MORE
CHANCES TO SEE HER. THE ISRAELIS ALLOWED
HER IN BUT NOT WITHOUT
CONDITIONS. WHILE THERE, TLAIB, A
VOCAL CRITIC OF
ISRAEL’S TREATMENT OF PALESTINIANS, WOULD
HAVE TO BE SILENT.
TLAIB SAID THAT WAS TOO MUCH.
TLAIB’S GRANDMOTHER
WHO LIVES IN THE WEST BANK SAID SHE HASN’T
SEEN HER GRANDDAUGHTER
IN FIVE OR SIX YEARS. WHY DIDN’T THEY ALLOW
HER TO COME HERE?
TLAIB’S AUNT SAID HER NIECE MADE THE RIGHT
CALL.
WE WERE HAPPY THAT SHE DECIDED NOT TO COME.

ROLE U.S. AMBASSADOR
TO ISRAEL DAVID FREEDMAN MAY HAVE
PLAYED IN DENYING
ENTRY TO A SITTING MEMBER OF CONGRESS.
>>ISRAEL SHOULDN’T
HAVE DONE IT BUT THE UNITED STATES SHOULD
NOT HAVE BEEN INVOLVED
IN ASKING ISRAEL TO DO IT OR FORCING ISRAEL
TO DO IT.
>>LIVE FROM NEW JERSEY, MIKE, THE
PRESIDENT IS GETTING
OTHER BRIEFINGS WHILE HE’S OUT THERE, RIGHT?

HIS FOREIGN POLICY
TEAM LAST NIGHT. THEY REVIEWED THE
STATE OF ONGOING U.S.
NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE TALIBAN AND WHEN IT
WAS OVER, MR. TRUMP
TWEETED THAT BOTH SIDES ARE LOOKING TO
MAKE A DEAL THAT WOULD
ALLOW FOR THE WITHDRAWAL OF AMERICAN
TROOPS AFTER 19 YEARS
OF INVOLVEMENT, AMERICAN INVOLVEMENT
WITH THE WAR THERE.
AND THERE ARE INDICATIONS THE TWO
SIDES ARE GETTING

TRUSTED.

    It’s so discouraging that the fascists travel to Portland to seed division and hatred, and to try to NORMALIZE white supremacy. They are looking for an excuse, as Trump demonstrated, in order to truly silence any dissent against the spread of white supremacy, racism, and hate. We don’t want racists haters here.

    The problem with the Epstein case is both sides could be correct. Epstein probably wanted to commit suicide. There probably are several people that wanted Epstein gone. We will never know.

    Oh SU. Democrats hate vaping because of party links to big tobacco. Each story fear mongering. The msnbc music is getting pre historic "da da dananadadada". It's not creating the psychological effect they're looking for. Lame.

    The right just came to peacefully protest and Antifa came to harass and torture them. That’s why Trump wants to do that. Antifa is really dangerous. Sad

    Trump's response is proof of his total ignorance, Antifa is Not an Organization it's a Movement. Right Wing Retardation is rampant and the Sick President is vigorously stoking the Incels to violence.

    The
    worker in a capitalist state—and that is his deepest misfortune—is no
    longer a living human being, a creator, a maker. He has become a
    machine. A number, a cog in the machine without sense or understanding.
    He is alienated from what he produces.

    Remember, One Of the Tactics the Left Wing Socialist Progressive Commie Programmed Thug Terrorists are using is to Masquerade as Conservatives.

    Anyone Claiming to be a Patriot and Committing Violence or Property Destruction, using Foul Language, Slinging Vitriol, is NOT ONE OF US!

    True Patriots will Reason and Debate. They will have Intelligent Discussions with Compassion and Understanding.

    True Patriots Hold to The Values Vision Hope and WAYS, of the Founders.

    They did not go to War until it was the Only Option.

    Anyone doing anything other than Acting in a Statesman Like Way is Not a Part Of Those of Us who Will Stand and Resist all Attempts to Utterly Destroy our Republic that Men and Women Gave all they had to Forge and Protect.

    Tho Much has been Eroded over the Last Several Decades from Internal Intentional Destruction, There Is Going to Be a People who will Hold. They will Stay On Point.

    And Just Like our Founders did, they will Answer the Call when it is Time.

    True Patriots WILL NOT MASK their Faces.

    Only Cowards Hide.

    The Earth is Going Thru a preProgrammed and Prophesied Transition. It has Happened Before and is in the Final Moments Of it’s Shifting.

    Man Has Nothing To Do With It.

    Chapter 6 Tells Clearly Of the Last Hours Of the Pole Shift that is Already in Full Swing. We are Barreling Towards that Time, when the Earth Finally Lops Over Into It’s New Position, While the Masses Sleep.

    The Earth is Like a Giant Round Rubix Cube. The Internal Parts Of our Planet are reForming. Magma is Already Rising to the Surface All Over the Globe and in Time will be Evident and they will No Longer be able to Hide What is Happening.

    The Ancient Texts Tell us the Earth will be Cleansed This Time by Fire. It Will Come from Beneath, Volcanoes and Magma, and from Above, Meteors and Asteroids.

    Man cannot Stop this. It Says they will Hide in Mountains but even the Mountains will be Brought Low and Islands will Disappear.
    Men will try to Hide but it will be
    an Endeavor of Futility.

    Do Not Be Decieved. God will Not be Mocked. What Man has Sown on the Earth he will Reap.

    He is Coming to Reclaim what is His. Just Like the Flood, He Will Have a Remnant that Will Inherit the Earth. The Texts Say Clearly He Will Remove those Who are Destroying the Earth.

    For Evidence of the Earths Travail that the media is Not Tellling, go to YT Two Preachers and Watch their Videos from the Last Year and a Half.

    Sorry Rez and Chris if they take you down.

    We are going to See things that will Cause Men’s Hearts to Fail for Fear Of what they See Coming Upon the Earth.

    Those Things Have Begun.

    The violence was antifa! The disturbance was antifa! The attackers were antifa! The instigators and aggressors were antifa! And those arrested were antifa! There wasn't any far right clashes! Just biased media to lie about the truth.

    Commenter Scott Casey says "you don't see Antifa members carrying American flags." My reply is that you also don't see Antifa members carrying NAZI flags or showing off tattoos of the Nazi symbol or Hitler, which these Right Wing groups so often carry or display.

    Those right wing Nazis and Hitler lovers should NOT BE ALLOWED to carry American flags. They do NOT represent America, just their own racism, xenophobia, and HATE. It's disrespectful of our flag, to be carried by such people.

    Wearing their MAGAT hats is probably OK, though, since Trump is so much like them — racist, xenophobic, and full of HATE. That's the sick, sad belief system that red ball caps will probably symbolize, from now to the end of history.

    Almost EVERY TERROR ATTACK in this country that did not involve foreigners were carried out by members of the FAR RIGHT who would fit right in with these marchers. THAT is the group that needs to be named a TERRORIST group.
