Portland, OR – Antifa targeted the Multnomah County Democrats (MCD) headquarters on Sunday night, shattering windows and tagging the building with anti-government slogans.

The latest round of destruction occurred after a group of rioters marched from Laurelhurst Park to the MCD stronghold in the 3500-block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard on the evening of Nov. 8, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) said in a press release.

The mob plastered the building with vulgarities, anarchy insignia, and the phrases “F—k Biden,” and “No Presidents,” police photos showed.

They also busted out several of the building’s windows before fleeing from the area, according to the PPB.

“After engaging in criminal activity, the group quickly left the location and headed back southbound towards Laurelhurst Park,” the department said. “As the group fled from the location, Portland Police arrived on scene and made targeted arrests of subjects who had engaged in criminal activity.”

Video footage showed a small group of officers with bicycles moving in to arrest one of the suspects as the mob marched along with drums while chanting “Black Lives Matter.”

At least one member of the crowd briefly tried to shove past the officers, but they were able to use their bikes to form a barrier to hold the rioters at bay.

“Racist f—ks!” one of the demonstrators screamed.

Members of the group then called for other rioters to come “surround” the officers, the video showed.

“Your mama raised a fascist!” they chanted as they circled around them.

The officers appeared to drive the group away from them just before the clip ended.

The rioters ultimately “dispersed into the neighborhood,” the Portland Police Bureau said in the press release.

Officers arrested three people during the chaos.

James Prettyman, 24, Maximillan Jennings, 22, and Thomas Mollrocek, 33, were each charged with criminal mischief, according to police.

Mollrocek was also charged with an additional count of escape.

All three suspects had been released from jail by Monday morning, according to KXL.

Rioters also targeted the Democratic Party of Oregon’s headquarters building in Northeast Portland earlier in the day, The Oregonian reported.

They are eating their own.

Democrats will call for the cops to stand down, and will be dispatching counselors in their place.

Gov. Considers Sending DPS To Austin Amid Violent Crime Wave After Police Defunding

Austin, TX – Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he is considering having the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) take over policing in some Austin areas due to skyrocketing homicide rates.

There have been 43 murders in Austin so far this year, which is the highest number of homicides the city has seen in 20 years, KEYE reported.

Abbott has repeatedly accosted the city of Austin for defunding its police department in August by a staggering 34 percent.



“Austin experiences highest number of homicides in 20 years,” the governor tweeted on Monday. “This is why it is absurd that Austin is defunding police.”

“It is also why Texas will act to roll back that defunding and consider taking over policing some areas of Austin,” he added.

Austin City Councilmember Greg Casar accused Abbott of making threats in an attempt to draw attention away from his alleged mishandling of the pandemic, KXAN reported.

“Austinites will not allow Gov. Abbott to fear monger and threaten our city just to score political points and distract from his lack of action on COVID-19,” Casar said in a statement on Monday.


The councilmember alleged that people are dying because of Abbott’s lack of leadership.

“As we double down on investing limited public safety resources into community solutions to poverty and crime, we’ll continue to see attacks from those who want to keep the status quo,” Casar said, according to KXAN. “We need our community to continue to use their voices to advocate for community-focused public safety, not failed over-policing that does not keep us all safer.”

The Austin City Council voted to slash the city’s police budget by $150 million on Aug. 13, thereby removing approximately one-third of the department’s total funding, FOX News reported at the time.

The three-tiered plan will kick off by immediately stripping $21.5 million from the police budget to be “reinvested” into programs such as abortion, housing, mental health response, offender re-entry programs, and workforce development, among others.



That money was previously allocated to fund three Austin Police Department (APD) police cadet classes, The Texas Tribune reported.

Nearly $80 million will be funneled into a “Decouple Fund,” which aims to transfer many police programs to outside agencies.

Included in the Decouple Fund are functions such as the special investigations unit, internal affairs, the 911 center, victims’ services, and forensic science services, among others.

Nearly $50 million will be transferred to the “Reimagine Safety Fund,” which will “divert dollars…toward alternative forms of public safety and community support,” according to the city council’s plan.


The police defunding plan was crafted by Casar, who said the massive budget cut is only the beginning, The Texas Tribune reported.

This moment has been born out of a lot of hurt in the community,” Casar said at the city council meeting on Aug.13. “We know we have a long way to go.”

Abbott resoundingly denounced the defunding measure in a press release later that same day.

“Some cities are more focused on political agendas than public safety,” Abbott wrote. “Austin’s decision puts the brave men and women of the Austin Police Department and their families at greater risk, and paves the way for lawlessness.”



“Public safety is job one, and Austin has abandoned that duty,” he declared. “The legislature will take this issue up next session, but in the meantime, the Texas Department of Public Safety will stand in the gap to protect our capital city.”

Funny. Travis County liberals were touting a 97% voter registration before the election. The actual population is 1,273,954. Their 2020 Summary Results Report state there were only 862,163 registered voters and only 607,354 actually voted. That's only half. I would say that's a pretty good turnout but it's just not enough so...Propaganda. I liked Austin but it's hard to swallow their liberal politics.
