Seattle Mayor on City's Armed Insurrection: "It's More Like a Block Party"
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D), shown, brushed off concerns over the â€ścop-freeâ€ť Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), in which agitators riding the wave of anger over the death of George Floyd have set up barricades and posted armed guards to keep out police â€” effectively creating an independent nation within six blocks of the cityâ€™s downtown.
Speaking on-air to CNNâ€™s Chris Cuomo, Durkan said there are four blocks that are â€śmore like a block party atmosphere,â€ť and she pushed back at President Trumpâ€™s vows to restore order to the city if local officials fail to do so....
Probably recently people have forgotten that George Will is a conservative . Another opinion piece that proves it âť—
George F. Will wrote: During the summerâ€™s nationwide lunacies â€” statues toppled and stores looted, ostensibly to demand better law enforcement â€” Seattleâ€™s government chose to turn 16 city blocks into an exploration of the delights of life without law. The fun paled after three weeks, and now the city might get an expensive lesson about existing law....
...CHOPâ€™s sandbox revolutionaries and their city government sympathizers soon learned that Thomas Hobbes was right: In a state of nature â€” a situation without a sovereign authority â€” life is â€śnasty, brutish and short.â€ť ...
excerpt from, "Seattle is due for an expensive lesson"
If the two murders weren't too much, the other actions and into actions by the city government may very well be found unconstitutional.
The national guard needs to be federalized , area needs to be fenced off, power cut, water cut, food cut, citizens evacuated and waited out. You come out, you need to be arrested. If the mayor wants to join the beach party she needs to invite Nancy Pelosi and the triple threat from BLM. Fit end to our lovely revolution. ( I hope the leadership of SBC takes notice and flies in to provide moral support to the revolutionaries , another wonderful group of folks).
This article unfortunately has it correct. Having a Wendy's restaurant burned down - - for no good reason certainly doesn't help any of the anti-Trumpersâť—đź‘Ž

BLM was established by 3 â€ś Marxist trainedâ€ť lesbians radicals. So can get rid of the niceties, our nation is either going to be at war for the constitution or wiiil slump forward as a bunch of frightened slobs â€ś hoping things get better â€ś. Our history is our nation. Right or wrong. New move forward we learn but we do not disavow who we are. That said there is one Lord , one salvation and in him we will bow and in all others are a waste of time.
Youâ€™re amazing Jim sympathizing with the Marxist ANTFIA movement, & BLM, but I amnâ€™t shocked as that is your comrades type. I guess rioting, burning down cities, seeking out pleasers of the carnal flesh through lawlessness. As long as itâ€™s okay the lawlessness is happening on your front lawn.

1. Really? You invariably take the opposite position in any discussion of the Civil War.
2. The colonists didn't burn down the houses of the colonists. It wasn't a protest, it was a war. A war against an oppressive micromanaging government. Quite the opposite of what the Marxist BLM, the mayor, various governors want. Micromanaging what you can say, what you can do, when you can do it is the favored realm of these characters.
I have heard that Palestinians are involved in all this, with funding from Iran, Venezuela, and even Cuba. If you notice their methods and equipment, they are very similar to what they do in Israel. Frank is right on about protecting his home. Check out last week's News and Comments from Cross Talk here at SA with Jim Schneider; he has audio from the Polk County, Florida sheriff where he says if these people come here, they better watch out if they want to go mess with our residents, who I encourage to own guns. Even in Overtown, the black neighborhood a block from the City of Miami Police HQ, they could not protest because the black residents told them to stay away, and they had their guns ready to show them. And they know they would never make it the 2 or 3 miles down 'Calle Ocho' the historically Cuban Main Street. In fact, a protest against the BLM group is planned for Sunday Flag Day in Miami Lakes, an upscale neighborhood created by the original Washington Post/Newsweek owners, the Graham family.

Thanks for the info. I have no idea or understanding on what the federal government can or can not legally do to stop this silliness. But I do know that if anyone comes to my house to hurt me or my wife, the police have my complete approval to stop them by any means necessary.

She also responded to President Donald Trump, who had tweeted earlier today, "Take back your city NOW. If you donâ€™t do it, I will.â€ť
"The fact that he thinks he canÂ just tweet that, and not haveÂ ramifications, is just wrong," Durkan said. "Our country was born out of aÂ protest.Â The right to gather, the rightÂ to protest, the right toÂ challenge government when it isÂ wrong, is our most fundamentalÂ constitutional right."

These protesters have been somewhat Peaceable especially compared to the man who drove into a crowd nonviolent protesters 5 days ago in Seattle.
The rules made up be the left apply to others. That's why gun control politicians have their own armed guards. That's why open borders apply to the rest of us, but these flakes establish their own borders within the city. That's why rich liberals live behind gates and walls. They are so compassionate, you see. Do as I say, not as I do.
