I'm sure by now most of you know about what happened last night in Portland, a Trump supporter walking down the street tragically had his life taken from him. And only a couple days ago, Donald Trump offered federal assistance to this city. And the mayor, Ted Wheeler, rather disrespectfully said, no, he didn't just say no. He sent a disrespectful letter to the president. And now we have one of the worst nights in the ongoing unrest. And it could have been avoided.
I'm sure most of you know, about what happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin, already. Well, regular people are taking notice and this is backfiring to an extreme degree on these Democrats. They could have just said yes, but because everything that Trump does is wrong, they said no every step of the way.
I remember when Lori Lightfoot said I don't need leadership lessons from Donald Trump and rejected federal assistance. And then only about a week or two later the city was ransacked. Well, here's the breaking news.
U.S. Election 2020, Trump handed huge boost as Biden makes major mistake. Exclusive poll. Donald Trump is on course for a clear victory in the U.S. presidential election after he opened up a three point lead over Joe Biden in an exclusive poll for the Sunday Express. And you know why? Because people in this country have had enough of months of extremism, but the Democrats have done nothing. In fact, early on, they were fanning the flames of this from Ocasio Cortez saying stay in the streets.
It's working to Kamala Harris saying they should not let up. Well, they didn't. And many people have now lost their lives. Many businesses have been destroyed. Many people have cried watching their loved ones be taken from them. In Seattle, for instance, we still don't have justice or closure on the people who had their lives taken from them during the whole Chaz incident. Now, Donald Trump could have invoked the Insurrection Act a long time ago, but the Constitution, well, the Constitution says the federal government isn't supposed to intervene in local affairs.
So he could have invoked the Insurrection Act and just trampled all over that. But he's respected the state's right to deal with these problems on their own. The only problem is they haven't.
So we have more breaking news in Kenosha or I'm sorry, in Wisconsin, someone is putting together a recall effort of the governor specifically saying they don't feel safe and their cities are burning. And mind you, the governor there did accept Trump's offer for federal assistance recently, one of the first, I believe, the first to actually do it. But the people there don't care.
They're fed up. And now we're seeing not just this one poll showing Trump ahead, but in the aggregate, Joe Biden is doing substantially worse than Hillary Clinton did at the exact same time, suggesting we may see Donald Trump take a landslide. And that's assuming that come election time, everything goes as planned. But, of course, the Democrats are still pushing mail in voting. And we have a big breaking story from The New York Post. Apparently, an operative who engages in voter fraud has confessed to the post under the under the condition of anonymity, explaining what they do and why they do it.
But out of fear of prosecution, they wouldn't give up their name. However, it appears The New York Post has confirmed this voter fraud is very, very real.
And, of course, the media keeps saying that Donald Trump has no evidence for any of his claims about inaccuracies or fraud, even though we see it over and over again. For instance, the first universal mail in vote in New Jersey and Paterson was nullified and a new vote was ordered. And in 2012, The New York Times reported with more mail in ballots, you get more inaccuracy and more fraud. But for some reason, the Democrats and their allies in media keep saying it's fake news.
That's my biggest fear. So let's let's start from the beginning here. We got a major poll. Donald Trump is probably going to win. Democrats are playing dirty games. Let's read the news before we get started.
Head over to Tim Kaskowitz, don't it? If you'd like to support my work, there's many ways you can give as a P.O. box if you like to send me stuff. But the best thing I can do is share this video. I don't have a big marketing department like CNN or MSNBC or even Fox News. I just have you if you think I do a good job. And what I'm saying is important and people should hear it. Please consider sharing this video wherever you can.
And if you really want to support me, just hit the subscribe button, the like button. The notification about let's read the news from the from Express UK. They say, according to the latest monthly Democracy Institute Sunday Express poll, President Trump has 48 percent of the popular support over Vice President Biden's 45 percent.
In the key swing states, the gap is even bigger, with 49 percent for Trump to 42 percent for Biden, giving the incumbent U.S. president an almost unassailable seven point lead. This is one of the first polls to show Donald Trump with a with a massive lead above Joe Biden. It was only a few weeks ago they show that Joe Biden had a double digit lead. Now it's flipped for Trump. And the important thing here is it's one.
Paul, and I think the polls are all broken, but I've got some more data to show you to back up why I believe this is it's actually likely accurate. I would not be surprised if at this point everything we've seen would lead to a Donald Trump landslide victory. But, hey, don't get complacent. I will be making sure to go out and vote in person and you better do the same. They say since the democracy since the Democracy Institute poll in August, a crucial month which saw the Democrat and Republican conventions, the president has gained a point in the swing states, while his opponent has lost a point significantly.
The latest poll shows that 21 percent were positively influenced to vote for Trump after the RNC, but a negligible eight percent were inspired to vote for Biden after the DNC. Trump is set to win Minnesota 48 to 45, Florida 47 to 44, and New Hampshire, where he just held a major rally, 47 to 43.
New Hampshire, that's East Coast man's crazy red state. It also appears clear that U.S. voters have already made up their minds with a mere three percent of Trump voters and nine percent of Biden supporters suggesting they could have a change of heart on polling day on November 3rd. Think about that. Trump voters know they are voting Trump Biden voters nine percent, not too sure they might flip. Patrick Basham, the director of the Democracy Institute, said that the poll confirms that the Democrats completely misread the effect of the Black Lives Matter protests and the desire of Americans to restore law and order in the wake of riots and anarchic protest, he said in any political campaign.
There's a moment that tells you which way the electoral wind is blowing in this year's American presidential campaign. The moment arrived on Wednesday. Joe Biden restated his support for the peaceful protests, but crucially condemned the violence that has come to dominate the months long nationwide protest movement. And every single quote from every single Democrat will exist forever to haunt them. These riots and the violence that came along with them didn't come from a vacuum, didn't come out of nowhere.
It only emerged because they had mainstream support from the establishment media and their politicians and the political allies like the Democrats. If we had all just come out and I mean the Democrats and said no, then the violence would have stopped. The police could have done their job. But even Joe Biden stepped in it when asked by an activist, would he support diverting funds from police? He said, yes, that was the core message of defund the police.
He later had to walk it back and say, no, no, I want more funding for police.
They realize too little, too late that the protests which led to which which led to riots and violence were not popular. Some people didn't mind the peaceful protests and they had a shield in the media. The media has repeatedly said peaceful every step of the way. And Americans have had enough. They've seen it and they've snapped.
They go on to say, quote, When a candidate changes his tune three quarters of the way through the race, it is not because he knows he holds a winning hand. He does so because the electoral ground is shifting beneath his feet. Take that to heart. Joe Biden changed his message several times because he realized they bet on the wrong horse too late.
Donald Trump spent the whole time consistently saying enough.
The Biden campaign made this move for one simple reason. Its own internal polling numbers revealed what Democracy Institute Sunday Express polls have shown for the past three months. The overwhelming majority of Americans, including black voters, are opposed to the organized anarchy. It's a really funny way of phrasing it. Mido looting, vandalism, mayhem and murdering of innocent people explicitly and implicitly cheered on by a considerable cabal of Democratic politicians, while an even large number simply turn a blind eye.
What if I were to tell you that after all of this, a Democrat politician came out and said, yeah, well, you know, this just happens after a man has life taken from him, you'd probably say, no way, Tim. They couldn't be that callous. They couldn't be that blind from the Hill. Just this morning, Deming's Portland shooting is what happens when homeland security is politicized. That's right.
It's not the fault of the rioters or the far left, the extremists. It's the fault of Trump and the Department of Homeland Security, they say. Rep. Val Demings on Sunday called the shooting death during violent clashes between pro Trump and leftist demonstrators in Portland. What happens as a result of homeland security being politicized?
This is exactly what happens when homeland security, the intelligence community, the military who are charged with protecting our homeland are politicized. Deming's also called on President Trump to directly address protesters in Portland to alleviate tensions. Wouldn't it be nice for the president of the United States to take the microphone over the airwaves and send a message for peace and calm? This now more than ever, is a time when we need to hear from the president of the U.S. but the chaos and disorder and lawlessness we are currently seeing.
That's Donald Trump's America, a Trump supporter walking down the streets, shot twice in the chest. That's Donald Trump's America. Donald Trump, who offered federal assistance just two days ago, two days ago, I believe it was Ted Wheeler saying we don't want it. That's Donald Trump's America. Yeah, you're right. You're right. And it's the Democrats in the cities and states that are making it that way. Trump is the president. Sure, he could have invoked the Insurrection Act.
But you know what? He was letting Democrats run their own their own jurisdictions and he wasn't going to intervene and invoke this law to to supersede the Constitution. I'm not going to blame him for what these Democrats are doing. He was there ready, willing and able and still is. And they still reject him. Only governor ever, I believe, actually took him up on the offer.
Well, I want to show you something. This is just one poll, but take a look at this. Benny Johnson tweeted, Guys, it's going to be a landslide. Take a look at the real Clear Politics electoral spread average. Four years ago, Clinton had nine in Wisconsin, Biden has three point five. We can see this trend across the board. Clinton at an eight point six percent polling lead. Biden, two point six. Ohio, Clinton had three point two to Biden's two point three.
Pennsylvania, Clinton at seven point six to Biden's four points. And you get the point.
Joe Biden in the aggregate polls is doing worse than Hillary Clinton in most battleground states.
In fact, in some where Clinton was ahead last time, Trump is now ahead, notably in Iowa, in North Carolina, in some places like Arizona, it looks like Biden has had of Trump. It's not perfect, but it does show clearly favorable data for Donald Trump.
Now, you may be saying. But, Tim, come on, surely they fix their polls and we concede that Biden is still ahead. A new study suggests polls are missing shy Trump voters from Bloomberg.
They say a new online study finds that Republicans and independents are twice as likely as Democrats to say they would not give their true opinion in a telephone poll question about their preference for president in the 2012 election. That raises the possibility that polls understate support for President Donald Trump.
And this we have known the backlash goes beyond just the polls. In Wisconsin, an effort has been launched to recall Tony effort. Tony Evers, a Burlington woman, launched effort Friday to recall the governor and also the lieutenant governor, saying the citizens of Wisconsin right now feel extremely unsafe.
We are not willing to stand by and watch our cities burn.
It's Donald Trump who has routinely called them out. It's Donald Trump who just this morning called the Portland mayor a fool, saying you need to bring in the National Guard.
He's right. I'm agreeing with Donald Trump. And the mayor needs to be the one to say, yes, the mayor has failed his own city. They occupied his own condo lobby and the cops didn't respond initially, I believe.
I'm not sure if they ever actually came. His neighbors were upset, apparently, according to some reports, throwing things out the window at the extremists. They're taking over city streets. And Trump has been saying, I will shut it down. You just give me the word, you know, the shows, the fact that Trump won't force his way in, I believe his good leadership, the fact that Donald Trump is allowing these cities to govern themselves the way they're legally supposed to show shows good leadership.
Trump is not deciding to slam down an iron fist and come in and take control.
Some would suggest he should, but I don't think we should. I don't think so.
I believe the Insurrection Act should be a last ditch effort, a last resort when the streets are nothing but mayhem and nothing can function right now. Yes, we have violence. We have an escalation in the rioting, but it is still up to the local authorities to deal with it. And if the people won't rise up themselves, well, maybe that's that's the point at which Trump has to come in. But for the time being, the people who live in these cities have to stand up and order a recall and challenge their Democratic leaders.
Otherwise, I don't believe it's Trump's place. If you get a substantial amount of people in these jurisdictions saying, please, Trump, come like they're starting to say in some of these areas, that I believe Trump should come in and shut down these ineffective politicians who are causing all of these problems.
But I want to show you some of the aftermath and I want to show you why people are fed up with Democrats.
Take a look at this. The Daily Caller says. CNN's Dana Bash, CNN, to Adam Schiff about Portland and Kenosha. Quote, Do you have any reason to believe that Russia is trying to fuel some of the civil unrest in some of these cities via social media or other methods? Now that I find absolutely amazing, it's Russia's fault, OK? They're trying to blame Trump. There are viral trends where they say, you know, Trump's riots, Trump's violence, but it's not working.
Regular people are blaming their local politicians. You see what these Democrats and these lefties on Twitter don't understand is that people in local areas pay attention to local news and local politics, but to them being.
Because they're only on Twitter, they only think nationally, regular people like Ramit, they talk about the governor and the mayors, the local councils, they talk a little bit about the federal level, but for the most part, they're concerned with their own community.
Why is my business closed? Well, it's the fault of this councilman, not Donald Trump. Yet you get this from CNN. Russia did it. Trump did it. I'm sorry. That says nothing to the American people, especially after years of screaming Russia and it turned out to be fake. I can only imagine this is just another part of everything backfiring because we have this video tweeted by Brendan Lesli. This is from Washington, D.C. A BLM leader is encouraging this crowd of protesters to fight the cops on the front line, saying he's ready to put them in graves.
That's what you have in the streets. That's what Joe Biden supported and still supports. Let me let me make sure I can I can make this clear. Joe Biden said it's time for action. He tweeted that he said the Black Lives Matter protests are good, not realizing this is a black lives matter protest. This is not the riot. These people gathering in DC. We're not going around and, you know, attacking people, including the looters exist.
This was the protest peacefully standing about saying it's time to put cops in graves. Then they go out and do it. So regular people see this and they say the only reason they're going out and doing it is because Joe Biden and Kamala Harris supported them and encouraged more of it.
That's what the the Express was pointing out with this Democracy Institute study. Joe Biden slowly starting to flip the script because he realized in his internal polling, it's showing up. Don Lemon said it and now they will reap what they have sown. Mary, Claire and Anslem tweeted, I'm a suburban mom and I will be enthusiastically and unapologetically voting for real Donald Trump in November. Law and Order.
Mary Claire is she works for she education policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation.
Now, perhaps she is just a conservative and will be voting for Trump anyway. But Trump said that suburban housewives want law and order and they will support him over this. I think he's correct and I think the polls are showing it's going to happen. I mean, we just saw the Iron Range in Minnesota, the Democrat stronghold. Six of their cities endorsed Donald Trump.
I think we're looking at a landslide. You do. But I want to show you something else, too, in line with all of this thinking, just relating to what happened so far with all of the unrest and why I think people are fed up. It's just another point. Cassandra Fairbanks, you may know her. She's a conservative reporter.
She tweeted out an opinion about Kyle Rittenhouse that she thinks he did nothing wrong. Cassandra Fairbanks was suspended for this. That's right. Cal Rittenhouse has not been found guilty of any crime. He's been charged. A judge has delayed the extradition hearing from Illinois. We don't know what they will find. And there is no final final determination on what Rittenhouse did. Yet they still suspended Cassandra Fairbanks.
Facebook announced they will ban any and all praise or support for Kyle Rittenhouse.
But what have I got to tell you that Antifa organizes every single day on Twitter and Twitter allows it?
They do. Over on Google, I did something simple. I Google searched, andI know Antifa Twitter organizing and there's a bunch of posts. Not all of them show Antipov organizing, but many of them do. You pull it up and what do you get. It is Andy. No tweeting out a screenshot where they call for action. They say be there this Saturday at noon in the area around this. What's happening? We will be out to monitor letting people know where to go and what to do.
Here's one. Let's see if this one is another post. There we go. Antifa organizing a riot in southeast Portland. Again, they are meeting at Laurelhurst Park. This was a tweet. Twitter is allowing the far left extremists to organize in real time and rally people to show up. And it's resulting in people losing their lives.
Sandra Fairbanks, a reporter, tweeted opinion that she got suspended. For now, I can show you all these things and I can say that Donald Trump is going to win. But I think the most important story is this from The New York Post, Confessions of a Voter Fraud, saying, quote, I was a master at fixing mail in ballots from John Levine. A top Democratic operative says voter fraud, especially with mail in ballots, is no myth.
And he knows this because he's been doing it on a grand scale for decades. Mail in ballots have become the latest flashpoint in the 2010 elections, while President Trump and the GOP warn of widespread manipulation of the of absentee votes that will swell with covid while polling restrictions, many Democrats and their media allies have dismissed such concerns as unfounded.
But the political insider who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he fears prosecution, said fraud is more the rule than the exception. His dirty work has taken him through the weeds of municipal and federal elections in Patterson, Atlantic City, Camden, Newark, Hoboken and Hudson County. And his fingerprints can be found in local legislative, mayoral and congressional races across the Garden State. Some of the biggest names in highest office holders in New Jersey have benefited from his tricks.
According to campaign records, the Post reviewed an election that is an election that is swayed by 500 votes, a thousand votes. It can make a difference, the tipster said. It could be enough to flip states.
The whistleblower, whose identity, rap sheet and long history working as a consultant to various campaigns were confirmed by the Post, says he is not. He has not only changed about himself over the years, but led teams of fraudsters and mentioned at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. A critical 20 20 swing state. Donald Trump offer this man complete immunity and have him come out and name names.
Please get this guy on public record testifying before Congress. Please have him testify to the FBI or to whoever and and do what you have to do to make sure he can get these people out.
The New York Post says they've confirmed it, quote, There is no race in New Jersey from city council to U.S. U.S. Senate that we haven't worked on. I worked on a fire commissioner's race in Burlington County. The smaller the race, the easier it is to do a Bernie Sanders die hard with no horse in the presidential race. He said he felt compelled to come forward in the hope that states would act now to fix the glaring security problems presented mail in ballots.
This is a real thing, he said.
And there is going to be a f ing war coming November 3rd over the stuff. If they knew how the sausage was made, they could. Send mail in voting can be complicated, tough enough that 84000 New Yorkers had their mailed votes thrown out in the June twenty third Democratic presidential primary for incorrectly filling them out for political pros there, a piece of cake in New Jersey, for example. It begins with a blank mail in ballot delivered to a registered voter in a large envelope.
Inside the packet is a return envelope, a certificate of mail in voter, which the voter must sign and and the ballot itself. That's when the election spring. The fraud springs in action. Phony ballots. The ballot has no specific security features like a stamp or watermark. So the insider said he would just make his own ballots. I just put the ballot through the copy machine and it comes out the same way. But the return envelopes are more secure than the ballot.
You could never recreate the envelope, he said. So they had to be collected from real voters.
He would have his operatives fan out, going house to house, convincing voters to let them mail completed ballots on their behalf as a public service. The fraudster and his minions would then take the sealed envelopes home, hold them over boiling water. You have to steam it to loosen the glue. He would then remove the real ballot place the counterfeit ballot inside the signed certificate and reseal the envelope five minutes per ballot tops. The insider said he took care not to stuff the fake ballots into just a few public mailboxes, but sprinkled them around town.
That way, he avoided the attention that foiled a sloppy voter fraud operation and a Paterson, New Jersey City Council race this year, where 900 ballots were found in just three mailboxes. If they had spread them in all different mailboxes, nothing would have happened, the tipster said. Sometimes postal employees are ending in the scam. You have a postman who is a rabid anti Trump guy and he's working for working in Bedminster or some Republican stronghold. He can take those filled out ballots and knowing 95 percent are going to a Republican, he can just throw those in the garbage.
In some cases, mail carriers were members of his work crew and would sift ballots from the mail and hand them over to the operative. They mentioned nursing homes, voter impersonation, bribing voters. It just goes on and on and on. He says there is nothing new about these techniques. I'm sorry. Hans von Spakovsky said there is nothing new about these techniques. He's a senior legal fellow at Heritage who manages the election law reform initiative. Everything he's talking about is perfectly possible, they say.
While federal law warns of prison sentences of up to five years busted voter fraud have seen far less punishment. In twenty eighteen, a Texas woman was sentenced to five years. An Arizona man busted for voting twice in the mail was given just three years probation. A study by the conservative Heritage Heritage Foundation found more than 1000 instances of documented voter fraud in the U.S., almost all of which occurred over the last, almost all of which occurred over the last 20 years.
Trump may be on track to win. He may have everything on his side, and it probably won't matter because the Democrats are forcing for no reason, universal mail and voting, Dr. Burke said. If she said vote in voting in person is safe, they don't care. We'll see how this plays out. But I hope you've taken the events of last night seriously. I guess we can only wait and see next second will be coming up at YouTube, got YouTube dotcom slash Tim Karst news at six p.m. Thanks for hanging out and I will see you all then.
It seems to be the case that almost every morning when I do one of these riot segments, I have to inform you that last night was the worst night we have seen yet. And it's true. In Portland, a man believed to be a Trump supporter wearing a blue lives matter patch was executed. And I mean it. This wasn't a clash. This wasn't someone fighting with someone else. It was quite literally a man seen walking down the street.
You hear someone yell something like, we've got another there's some unintelligible garble right here. Some people believe he said, we got another Trumper right here. I don't know if that's what he said. He may have said something else. And then this extremist leftist fires two shots, killing the man, shooting in the chest. There was no fight. There was no scuffle. It was just a guy walking down the street. You know, what's funny is I laughed when Scott Adams said Republicans will be hunted.
And I think it's because of me, because I and many other people probably took the most extreme interpretation of what that meant, like, you know, a bunch of crazy leftists, you know, like like the movie The Hunt, like tracking people down and gunning down in the street and things like that. But I think the simpler interpretation is that they are they just were they were looking for Trump supporters. They found one and they killed him. The funny thing about all of this, and I don't mean funny how he's mean like the weird thing is that they're claiming the same thing about Kyle Rittenhouse.
And it made me realize, I believe the time for talk is over. I there's no negotiating at this point. I don't know if that means moving forward. I don't you can take it however you want.
But listen, when Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha was trying to protect the community and he was rendering aid to the rioters, he got threatened by a violent and angry mob. There's video of this.
The two men who died were actually threatening him and other and his friends earlier in the night. We know that Rittenhouse was working in Kenosha, which is according to his defense. Mind you, the rifle wasn't taken from across state lines. The business owner asked for help and Kyle was rendering aid. They attacked him. They chased him. Someone fired and Kyle defended himself. We've seen the videos of what happens when people don't defend themselves. The man sitting on the ground in Oregon, when that guy Keith's love or whatever runs up and punched him in the face.
When you give in, they take advantage and they stop you. Karen Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself. Now he's being charged with six counts of, I believe, homicide, even though the according to the defense, the state's witness wasn't even there. But his extradition is being delayed.
Extradition hearing is being delayed. So we'll see how that plays out.
We're at a point where we can watch the videos. We have The New York Times saying it was defense, but the left says it was murder. The left says he was hunting. The left says that if you are defending yourself, it is an act of extremism and Facebook will ban you if you praise him or defend him in any way and go fund me, shut down the fundraiser for his legal defense while supporting the extremists who are destroying buildings and burning down our communities communities.
There's only one path forward. Based on everything we're seeing, our communities are going to burn. The police aren't showing up. A Trump supporter was just executed in the street.
I mean, quite literally, they yelled, we got one turned bang bang that no no talking, nothing. They saw the guy and they said, that's all I need to see dead. What does the left saying now? I'd be surprised if at any way they came out and said this was bad or, you know, they'll probably say, oh, no, the senseless violence must stop.
But what I'm seeing is many of these people on the left have been lying about Kyle Rittenhouse nonstop. And we know because we've watched the video and we've actually read the news that he was defending himself. You can still argue it was wrong. You can still argue that he shouldn't have been out. All of those things are fine. But to act like he was a white nationalist militia member who was hunting people down in trucks, that's what they're saying. One person even said he killed three kids.
That's just not what happened. It doesn't matter, though.
I don't know what they'll say about this, but I'm assuming nothing because we've already seen people being beaten and we've already seen 30 dead before the latest extremist killings, the latest extremists involved, like involved killings like, you know.
Right. Related deaths. And they've said nothing and they've continually called for more.
Ocasio Cortez called for more. Kamala Harris called for more. Joe Biden called for more.
I'm not making that up. Kamala Harris says they should keep going. AOK tweeted, Stay in the streets. It's working. While people were dying in the riots while people what?
We found a corpse in a burnt down shop when David Dawn was gunned down because somebody wanted to steal a TV, they had the nerve to say, keep going.
You know, I've said stop, no enough. You know what I said when people asked what can what I've been asked time and time again, what can we do to stand up against this and what can we do to stop this? I specifically said, do not engage and do not go out like this. You see, what happened last night was a large group of Trump supporters were rallying. They were driving their trucks through Portland. They're allowed to do that.
This resulted in a lot of fights and conflict. This is exactly why I said it's not what you should do. However, I did say peaceful protest, so I guess I don't know. I don't know what to tell you.
It's a peaceful protest, nonviolent civil disobedience, you know, old ladies guarding statues. But for the most part, the only thing I've really ever said you need to do is speak up for yourself.
The problem is, if you go into Portland, you know what they're looking for and you know what they want. And, you know, the media is on their side.
This guy did a lot of people are going to talking about it. And I think it's going to this this may be the shot heard round the world that gives Trump a landslide victory.
And I think before any of this escalates into a full on full scale war, Trump will win a resounding victory already. I got to tell you, man, some polls are coming out and it is shocking. I don't believe it. I'm trying to I'm trying to vet these polling institution because I'm like, there's no way Trump is now nationally leading Biden by several points. There's no way Trump is leading in battleground states by six points. But these polls are starting to pop up.
I'll tell you why, because regular people can watch the video of a guy walking down the street and someone you only got one bang bang. And it's scary. They're showing up to people's homes. And I said, this is going to happen. And it's funny because, you know, I do kind of mention this, but it is I hate to say I told you so. That's not my intent. But I warned earlier this year that this is exactly what would happen.
I warned I was thinking about, you know, I was talking to someone, my family, my family. And I was thinking about several years ago when we saw the escalation in in in Berkeley with, you know, people are holding a Trump rally and then Antifa shows up and beats people. And those explosives is a several years ago. But I said, I think civil war is coming. And I said, I think by the time I'm 35, it will be, you know, really just full on chaotic.
I still don't know if that's true. I am not yet thirty five, but I will be thirty five in about seven months. So maybe, maybe I was right. What we're seeing right now, I can't imagine will de-escalate for one simple reason. Carol Rittenhouse is being demonized and they're trying to arrest him. There are they did arrest him. They tried to prosecute him. The McCluskey's were also charged and I think they will not frame this properly.
The media will inflame. They'll argue the guy was defending himself. They'll argue the guy who shot them wasn't actually part of Black Lives Matter or Antifa. Even after 30 people had died in these riots, they still kept saying and he was never killed anybody. Thirty people were dead.
But I not antifa. They're going to show up to people's homes next, and they're already doing it. They've been doing it. I said this was going to happen. And again, it's not like I'm picking lottery numbers here. When they started going to residential neighborhoods and I said, how long until they go to someone's house than they did? Now, this guy who got killed, they identified him. It's like Scott Adams said, and everyone laughed, including me, when he said Republicans will be hunted.
They're going to go to someone's house. That woman in Portland, she was wearing a stupid armband, I guess, trying to incite or provoke.
I don't know why she was doing it and they still attacked her.
I don't care what you do on your own property, in your own house, as long as you're not hurting other people, even if I think it's disgusting.
What you know, she was wearing a World War two German armed men who put it that way. It's ridiculous, you know, but you're allowed to do it on your own property as long as long as not hurting anybody, anybody. And they physically attacked her.
How long when they when that when you see this, when a guy gets killed in the street, how long until they come to your house because they are going to homes and they see that Trump flag and they see that that, you know, Magga 20, 20, or you come out and you're wearing something about law enforcement and they say, hen we got another one, bang, bang. Right now it's in the street. They've already attacked people in their homes.
So I'll put it this way. If I if I, you know, extrapolate, based on the trends from the past several years, the first bouts of physical violence erupted just before Trump got elected.
We've in about four and a half years because it was before Trump got elected.
It escalated now to people being killed in the streets.
That says to me that we're a few years away from from them going to your home and killing people in their homes. But because of the rapid escalation, I'd actually scale down. So here's I'm trying to say from the first swing, the first punch that I saw in the 2015 beginning of the election cycle to the point where they shot someone in the street. It has been five years now. They attacked a woman at her home a few months ago.
If you if you if you want to scale that up to now, they're going to people's homes. How soon you know, how long will it take for a punch, turn to a gunshot? I would say, hey, five years. Right. Not necessarily because the escalation of the conflict, eventually they're going to say you'll start hearing things from the left like they're they're plotting. They're hiding. We have to weed them out where they're hiding and things like that.
Right now, they're saying confront them in the streets. Don't let them come to our towns, keep the Nazis out. There's a video of a guy defending a building. He's just a regular guy standing in front of the glass and someone yells, he's a Nazi. And they start punching him because no one cares if he really is. But they know that they're a mob and they can beat whoever they want, get away with it.
I mean, there's a story from from I want to show you some I want to show you some of what happened last night.
We'll keep talking. Here's a story. One man shot, killed near downtown Portland protest Saturday. That's it. They say the man was shot around eight forty five p.m. near southwest Third Avenue in Alder Street. The agency did not say whether the incident was related to demonstrations.
We saw clashes erupting after a Trump rally in Clackamas. I mean, there are crazy videos, people brawling on highways, far leftists blocking roads and cars just like, you know, slowly pushing and then pushing him out of the way. But there's a video of people on a highway boxing and the cops run in and break it up.
And he says it sounds like someone is shouting, we got a Trumper right here just before the shots are fired and the man is killed. I don't know if I heard that, too, but it sounds like it might be the case. I don't think so. Some people think that's what it sounds like. It sounds like he might he's saying he said something like, we got something, something right here. Bang, bang. Speaker at Leftest Kenosha rally, which was attended by the Democrat lieutenant governor, quote, If you kill one of ours, it's time for us to kill one of yours.
Hours later, Trump support a targeted shot and killed. I lived on Myrtle and Nostrand and Brooklyn just around Myrtle, and actually lived closer to like Tompkins in twenty fourteen, I believe it was two cops and a Hispanic man and an Asian man were sitting in their car and a black identity extremist walked up, killed two of them. Bang, bang. He had posted to Instagram.
You take two of ours, we take two of yours. That sounds familiar to me. And that's what they did. That was that. That was the point of Portland, most likely. But when you get a tit for tat, what happens now? How long till the right says you take one of ours, you take one of yours? To be honest, I don't think the right will do that. I think what the right will say is you need to be prepared because they're killing us randomly, just walking up and shooting us.
So wear your armor and get your guns ready and then they'll be on edge and the left will keep claiming they're the innocent victims and the media will defend them.
But maybe I think Trump's going to win. I think that gunshot last night might be Trump's landslide victory, no doubt. No joke. You get a guy who comes out saying support the police. That's what the blue the blue lives matter patch means. It's the thin blue line patch.
It means I support the police. That's it. He had Patriot prayer. So he was a Christian conservative, you know, law enforcement supporter. They killed him for that. I think that makes up a good portion of this country. But think about what that means. Regular people. How many regular people are like? I like police, 82 percent of the black community wants the same level of policing. They're in their neighborhoods or a little bit more.
The majority of people like 80 percent.
This is one of the polls I read previously, don't want to abolish the police. And we just saw a man saying support the police executed just right there in the middle of the street. Elijah, Elijah Schaefer tweeted More shootings tonight. We are in civil war. In the video, a man is walking down the street.
You hear multiple gunshots ring out. We I don't know what this was. It's not the other moment because there's multiple gunshots. But, yep, throughout the night, gunshots were ringing out. We're going to see more of it.
Donald Trump tweeted, The National Guard is getting ready, willing and able. All the governor has to do is call, you know what? I'm torn on this, but I lean towards agreeing with Trump. If Trump had invoked the Insurrection Act a long time ago, these people would not be dead. But it is overstepping in many ways the bounds of the federal government, but it is it is a challenge. A lot of Trump supporters have already said invoke the Insurrection Act.
I got to be honest, I don't want any of these people to be hurt. And I'm horrified by what's happened so far with the multiple people who have died in the past couple of days. You know, I warned I hope you're ready because the next round of riots are going to be way worse than the peak in June. And it is in a different way in in June when they are going on smashing and looting. It was targeting property.
Now it's targeting people. And though they are burning buildings in Kenosha, they weren't so much in Portland, they're just shooting people. What should Donald Trump intervene?
You know, at a certain point, I still say no, no, Ted Wheeler said he he he rejected Donald Trump's offer for assistance.
And then what happens, a man walking down the street, a Trump supporter, gets executed, maybe Trump should have come in because his own supporter would have survived, but should Trump step on the rights of states and intervene and local local matters? A tough question. And I would say I don't know if we're at that point yet. I know it's tough because some high profile individuals have already said do it now. In fact, you can see the Insurrection Act trending right here.
Right. Let's look at this on the tweet. I've pulled up fifteen thousand six hundred tweets saying Insurrection Act. I don't know if they're saying to invoke it. They probably are. Maybe Trump should have. I lean towards it is a last resort for when cities are completely, you know, no longer functioning and people are shooting each other in like in mass right now. We've had a few tragic instances. It is up to the Democratic governors and mayors to stop this.
The blood is on Ted Wheeler's hands. It's not Trump's fault if Trump did not intervene. It is Ted Wheeler's fault. Trump said I can come. He said no. Ted Wheeler, the Democrats are to blame for this if Trump gets re-elected. And at this point, I believe it is a given, especially with what happened last night. I still don't think he should immediately invoke the Insurrection Act, but I believe it will come shortly after this because we will see mass violence across these cities.
But what happens and the reason I'll tell you why I'm not a fan of invoking the Insurrection Act.
You know why the far left is emboldened in their insane. Donald Trump can come out with all the feds and National Guard and they will then say, aha, Trump is the fascist and that will kick off civil war. You can say we're in a civil war right now, but the best thing we can hope for is that the Democratic politicians stop the violence. I don't think they will. But I can tell you this. If Trump doesn't invoke the Insurrection Act, the violence will get worse.
If he does, it will get worse, much faster. So I don't know what the right move is. Perhaps Trump. I think if Trump invoked the Insurrection Act and deployed National Guard and federal law enforcement, you would end up with mass insurgency people. There would be there would be bombs being planted. You know, people would be randomly shot in the street, targeted, things like that. Homes would be set on fire and they would consider themselves the resistance against Trump's fascism because, well, they've been lying the whole time, claiming they're the innocent victims fighting against Nazis.
And they would claim that Donald Trump is that is their leader. That's where we're headed. So I'm hoping that Donald Trump doesn't do this, but I'm not saying he shouldn't outright. I'm just saying for right now, we need the Democratic governors and mayors to stop this before it gets too late, before it goes too far. And we're dangerously close to it going. In fact, it may have already gone too far. They need to intervene now.
I think they won't. I think they'll show up in DC. I think we're going to see a lot more people die in this. Thirty two people.
It is a lot for our tastes because we're not used to this many people dying.
In some countries, it's in the thousands. I mean, I was I was in Egypt when the revolution, the second revolution. A lot of people died a lot more a lot more people. And there were clashes in the streets. Eventually, the military got tired of the fighting and the destabilisation and they intervened and they removed. I believe at that point it was Morsi and Sisi came in. The military has said they will not intervene in electoral dispute.
So it sounds like Trump is going to take over like I like like he's going to win and then take over in terms of the Insurrection Act and go to these cities. And there will be federal control of these areas.
I don't know for sure. I'm not a prophet. And he no posted this video. And this is this is what this is what I'm saying. I am not sad that I effing fascist die tonight because a woman at the Antifa gathering in downtown Portland.
Do you think these people have been negotiating in good faith? They're not. When AOK says go out in the street and then you say, hey, wait, wait, people are dying. She goes, well, obviously we don't want that. And then the people she incited say, we're not sad, we're happy for it. And all of our supporters are cheering for it. And Project Veritas released footage showing Bernie Sanders campaign staffer saying, oh, the real fun will begin soon.
I'm paraphrasing being hyperbolic.
His supporters said, we don't want people to know about the real crazy stuff, but revolution, nothing less when Kamala Harris says they should not let up. That's a quote. They should not let up. What is she talking about? You think she's talking about peaceful handholding in the street? No, they're not negotiating in good faith. So what do we do? Protect your homes? Counterprotest intercepted pro Trump motorcade blocking their vehicles from advancing. They were in streets in the highways in Portland blocking traffic.
Here we have Shelby Talcott, Talca. Our evening was cut short and we are now at a very tense D.C. situation. My phone gets wonky. I was hit with something midway. They were marching into neighborhoods in DC in Miles Chong, Seattle Antifa mob makes its way down residential streets to shine lights into homes. They're coming to your neighborhoods. They did it in Chicago back in early June. They've been doing it nonstop for the past several weeks. I'm sorry, but it is only a matter of time before they start going to houses.
You saw the video of them going to the woman at the diner. Right. And raising their fist and demanding that she raise their fists. They're doing it more. Protesters are arguing with diners and empty cops have showed up, they went to a woman and they raised their fists and screamed and demanded she raised theirs.
I told you about how businesses in Berkeley put up Black Lives Matter signs because they don't wanna get their windows smashed up. Eventually, it will be your home and they will demand you fly their flag and the police will do nothing to stop it and they will say it's not political. Just like in Nazi Germany. And that's what they've been saying when they paint Black Lives Matter in the streets, they say it's about peace, love.
It's not about politics. You know, the origin of the swastika. It was some ancient symbol. They're going to say the exact same thing and they're doing it now. Obviously, I don't think they're the same as Nazis.
I think they're authoritarians who have a zealous ideology based in identity. Arianism, and there are similarities. They will come to your house and they will look for your sign and they will start shooting at it. That's what they did to Cassandra Fairbanks. They show up to her home with fireworks and fired bullets at it. Then their allies and media claimed it never happened. It did. There's evidence the neighbor said so. The police said so. But does it matter?
Because the media has been covering for them, allowing them to expand and gain power? I can only assume it's because many in media are actually on their side and that many Democrats think they can wield the one ring they can't. The rings will eventually turn them into Rathaus. The they are slowly being consumed by the extremists.
But in their desperation to stop Donald Trump, they turn to people they didn't quite understand. Some people who just want to watch the world burn and some people who are like mad dogs chasing after a car and they wouldn't know what to do once they actually caught it. You get those references, your movie references. The point is the left has been lying about what they're doing.
They haven't been negotiating and speaking in good faith. They've been lying the whole time. They've been accusing the right of doing what it is they do and they're doing it to manipulate the emotions of traditional liberals into supporting them. But I believe they may be going too far. And now the polls are swinging in Trump's favor.
So I'll tell you this, while all of this may be scary, nightmarish, and it may seem like things are worse than they've ever been, the night is always darkest before the dawn. And because of the actions they have taken and this potentially the shot heard round the world in Portland, Donald Trump may landslide. And when he does, the far left insurgency will be crushed. We will have law and order on our streets. The economy will rebound and we will be stronger than ever.
I believe that's where we're headed now. It's possible that we will still see insurgency. But I think in the end, Trump will likely win out. But we'll see. We have to make sure that in whatever happens, we do not allow authoritarianism to rise based on anyone's side. And we've already started seeing emergency laws enacted. Free speech must be protected. The right to peaceably assemble, assemble must be protected. The right to bear arms must be protected.
Each and every one of our constitutional rights must be protected. And that includes the state as they seek to crush the extremists on the far left and shut them down. We must make sure they do not become the monster they have set out to destroy. Be careful when fighting monsters, lest you become one for when you gaze into the abyss. The abyss gazes back. The next segment's coming up at 1:00 p.m. on this channel. Thanks for hanging out and I will see you all then.
I think today is going to be fairly dominated by talk of what happened in Portland last night, because it's one of the most dramatic escalations we've seen yet. But as of right now, 4chan believes users, they believe that they have identified the shooter and they've corroborated it with information about this man, notably a large Black Lives Matter tattoo on his neck.
We have the story from Cassandra Fairbanks. 4Chan users appear to have identified Portland rider who shot and killed a Trump supporter.
But I also want to go over some of what the people of Portland are saying online, because as I stated in the earlier segment, it feels like we're beyond we are past the point of even trying to convince other people the lines have been drawn and you need only pray that your side has the ability to win.
And I don't mean win in any hot conflict.
I just mean in general, political voting, whatever. I've been talking to my friends about a lot of what's been going on. And there are many people who literally don't care if Kyle Rittenhouse was attacked in the first place. The argument is he shouldn't have shot us. What about what happened in Portland? Well, that was clearly self-defense. Some are saying I kid you not.
And I thought about this because when I look at what happened with Kyle Rittenhouse, he was running away. They throw stuff at him. Someone fires, he turns and defends himself. They just went on the street. He falls down. Other people are saying that he went looking for a fight. I think that's completely wrong. He was there. He was asked to defend it. According to his defense, his defense team, he was working in Kenosha.
Take a look at what happened last night. It's a short, grainy video, but you will see that both men actually fired. Not a hold on, hold on. Hear me out. Somebody fired what appears to be mace. And so the assumption now from many on the left is that this guy pulled something out of a holster and was raising it up when the far leftist shot him twice and killed him. They literally argue self-defense. You can see what appears to be a puff of mace in the air.
If you think about it, then their argument is essentially he actually drew his weapon first, but the other guy was faster and had live ammo. He brought Mace to a gunfight.
I believe that's wrong. I believe it's completely wrong. I've looked at the video and it's not a situation like Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse ran away. He tried to flee. This guy was walking down the street when someone yelled and approached him. And even if he did pull out Mace, they both fired at the exact same time. And that's what it appears like. So in that case, there is a guy who was going to make somebody, which is, in my opinion, reasonable defense considering the circumstance.
So I'll go over this with some of the police.
But the general idea is if you see someone threat, like if you're if you're in a group and there's another group that's threatening you or has been threatening you throughout the day, so you pull out pepper spray, that would probably be considered reasonable force. It's pepper spray.
It's not it's going to it's going to be a few minutes of uncomfortable, you know, burning in your eyes. And you're fine if somebody if you've been threatening someone all day and you approach them and then you draw a pistol and shoot them twice, that is not, in my opinion, reasonable force. Now, these arguments will be made moving forward. But I think it's important to bring up because some people are going to argue this and it's important that that is said.
But let me just make it clear one more time. Rittenhouse ran first.
Now, that's clear cut self-defense. I mean, he was running away. He wasn't going to hurt anybody.
Well, here's the story first about the 4chan users. We have this image of a man who appeared. And so so, listen, the first thing I want to say is I normally do not like to use stories like this.
I you know, after I did the segment earlier this morning, I was a little worried because we don't know enough and we have to be very, very careful about jumping the gun and fanning the flames if we don't know exactly what's happening.
This is just people compiling photos and videos from the scene, from various other bits of media, and they're making assumption about who this guy is. I don't know if they're right. I don't know 4chan is correct, but many high profile verified Twitter users are sharing this. So let this be my opportunity to try and diffuse what they're sharing by saying this is not confirmed.
This is so far a bunch of videos showing it is very, very likely to be this man. It really does look like they identified this guy. But we need to make sure law enforcement handles this, OK? We need to make sure that the proper identification comes from law enforcement because we have seen what happens before when the Internet gets, you know, riled up and decides they know who did what, it can lead to all sorts of bad things.
That being said, I am going to talk about this specifically because I want to make sure people kind of pull back on Twitter. People are just sharing his videos, sang straight up, it's him. And that's that's fun, I guess. OK, there are verified profile, Sangh confirmed. I'm going to say no and everyone needs to keep calm.
But here's the story from Gateway Pundit. They say the anonymous message board 4chan may have once again beat the media to identifying a violent writer. On Saturday night, a Portland Black Lives Matter militant shot and killed a member of the pro Trump group Patriot Prayer.
I will also add, we don't know, actually, you know what? Listen, we don't have confirmation from law enforcement yet. I believe it's safe to assume this shooting was due to the clashes. Someone brought this up to me earlier. I shouldn't say far left extremist did it because we don't have confirmed details.
I think it's fair to assume that's actually a good point, though. And I'm telling you all this for your benefit. I know a lot of people are going to say no, Tim, Tim, we know exactly who did it. We know what's going on. I know I get it. But listen, what if there's a one percent chance it turns out to be something else?
You've got to make sure you've got the confirmed law enforcement statement.
And the reason for that is it will strengthen your defense. OK, you'll say we waited. We didn't jump the gun. We had this information, but we were trying to remain calm about it.
Look what the left is doing with Kyle Rittenhouse. They're making up all these crazy lies about it. The other thing I want to point out, absolutely, I've said this over and over again. This is exactly why it's one of the reasons why Trump supporters on the right should not be going out and engaging with antifa. Two big reasons. One, they are bringing out guns and they will kill you. The media will not have your back and they will blame the victims, too.
If Trump supporters go out, they are thirsty for any footage showing anyone on the right being violent.
And the media will blast that on the front page of every paper. So here's here's the so there's video here.
They say within minutes of the shooting, 4chan users got to work and within hours they had a name. So this is from Chris Tomlinson, The face of the Portland murder has already been found. He has a large BLM tattoo on his neck and we can actually see this. He does.
They go on to say the message board quickly claimed the shooter is Michael Reino, 48, of Portland. This is extremely important. I am only covering this because I am concerned that we need law enforcement to engage this individual and question him and not some kind of dangerous vigilante justice. People need to remain calm. Let law enforcement handle this.
I know typically, you know, moderates and the right do just that. I want to make sure it's made absolutely clear this name has been popping up all over Twitter, part of a bunch of trending tweets. And it's the only reason I'm bringing it up right now, because I feel like it has to be said what should happen from here with this name emerging, with this video from Bloomberg, which appears to show the same man is local law enforcement needs to be contacted or federal law enforcement and they need to question him.
The bigger question about self-defense, I think the point needs to be made is that dude fled the scene. Did he turn himself in like Rittenhouse did? I don't know. Rittenhouse tried turning himself in, according to his defense. And when they said keep moving, he went to Antioch and turned himself in to his local police department.
That's what they're officially reporting. We haven't heard anything about this man so far. It may not be him.
There was actually reports earlier, Cassandra mentioned this, that there's another guy who fits this description.
The murder suspect has been identified as snowboard instructor Michael Raynal from Oregon. I would say he is believed to be by people who are comparing photographs. Please, please, we got to keep this calm. Right.
Take a look at this. They say in a video he describes when he got in the middle of an altercation with a young man in a group of miners of color and eventually got shot in the arm.
Now, I do think it's fair to say this is this is a good suspect, OK? Fits the description, has a tattoo on his neck in Portland during the riots. But seriously, so there's an interview here with Bloomberg. They say rioters in the city cheered and celebrated the murder by one of their peers for several hours.
Rumors were circulating online that a rider had been killed by a supporter of President Trump. But there was a big celebration when they found out it was actually the other way around.
Quote, Actually, I'm not going to read this quote. They said everybody just got word the person who died was a patriot prayer person. The Black Lives Matter leader tells the excited crowd he was an effing Nazi. Our community held its own and took out the trash. I'm not going to shed any tears. That's what they said. And they post videos of it.
Following the shooting, riders also surrounded and assaulted Patriot ProFounder Joey Gibson. When Gibson retreated into a gas station, riders broke the windows and threatened the owner.
The owner tried calling 911 one.
I'm sorry, man. I think we're well past this point.
It's just I that's what look, I know I just said it like four times, but I'm saying, again, the reason why I'm pulling this up is because I'm worried we're past that point.
I'm hoping that we're still at a time where people are going to sit down and say, I think we found him and they're going to call local authorities in Portland and say, we believe we know who it is and they will deal with it. The far left has been going out and starting fights and getting violent. We do not want vigilante justice. They tried claiming that Kyle Rittenhouse is a vigilante and that is not true.
He was not going out and enforcing the law outside of the authority.
That's what vigilante vigilantism I mean, for the most part is he was just saying, stay away from this building. We were asked to defend. It is not vigilantism. If you are defending property at the request of its owner, if you live in a house and you have a gun and you're like, I don't want people burning my house down, you are not a vigilante. You are just defending your property.
Now, if you go out looking for people with no request and saying, I'm going to stop the violence. Yes, that's not what Kyle Rittenhouse did and that is not what we want to happen.
Police need to deal with this. Users on the message board. We're also forced to identify Maki's love, the man who attempted to kill a driver and in the city earlier this month, they subsequently identified another person involved in the attack.
Now, this is why I think they're probably right. They found Krislov dude turned himself in. He did it. He even admitted it on Snapchat. So I think 4chan knows what they're doing. And this guy's got a big Black Lives Matter tattoo on his neck. I think they found him.
Let us hope now that Donald Trump can send in the feds and have a clean law enforcement action that is within the realm of law and order and not this extrajudicial insanity we see from the left.
Now, take a look at this, Marc R11 Levin said it appears a Trump supporter was shot and killed in Portland and someone responded, clear cut case of self-defense next.
Yes, people are absolutely claiming it was self-defense.
And I've got more posts over from Reddit. We have this tweet here from Matt Walsh. What happened in Portland was simply murder. There is no self-defense argument. He walked up. And shot the guy, if you defend that, you officially support the execution of your political opponents, you join the ranks of the most evil people in history, is that who you want to be? Let me let me say something just just to make sure it's I'm going to steal, man.
This argument, what that means, as I'm going to present to you the strongest possible argument from the other side so that you know exactly what happened and what they're saying. My personal belief is that this was unjustifiable. I do not believe it was first degree murder.
I believe you could argue it was second degree. He had the intent to kill. He went to this event. He was armed. He knew exactly was going to happen. In fact, there's potentially a first degree murder charge in that he may not have targeted this man who died, but he was certainly going there with the intent to cause harm.
You could argue that I don't know if we could strongly argue that to a second degree may work better. There's a potential for a self-defense argument. There is think about it this way, too. People are walking up to each other of opposing factions and they both reach their holster and they both draw. What the left is arguing is that this man saw a Trump supporter draw something from his holster aimed at him and he thought it was a gun. I think you might I think they'll argue it.
I really do think they'll argue now that the issue I take with it, as he could have fled and he didn't have to engage the man in the first place. And it wasn't the Trump supporter who engaged in the conflict. The Trump supporter was walking down the street and this guy turned to face him, showing the confrontation came from the other side. Ultimately, there is I think ultimately there will be no self-defense charge either or defense.
I don't see it because this wasn't like I just said, listen, if it really does come down to two people approach, let's put it this way, assuming assuming this is not necessarily the case, but let's just say for the sake of argument, two people approach each other.
They both draw weapons. One shoots mace, one shoots bullets. There's no self-defense, just none whatsoever, no matter what.
It wasn't a guy walking down the street being threatened and hassled. And, you know, whatever it was, it was him turning. Even if you believe him drawing the mace was grounds for some kind of, you know, defensive maneuver. It's not self-defense. Not like Rittenhouse, who was running away in D.C., where this tweet from Brendan Leslie, a Black Lives Matter leader, is encouraging this crowd of protesters to fight the D.C. cops on the front lines, saying he's ready to put them in their graves.
This may this may lead to another violent night in D.C.. Yup, DC was popping off yesterday. I just you know, what this says to me is that escalation is inevitable. This is why I'm showing you this. The left right now is defending the actions that man took last night in Portland. Self-defense. He's allowed to do it.
People are posting on my Facebook page. You take one of ours, we take one of yours. That's what they're saying. They're arguing that it's not about the circumstantial self-defense, but contextual self-defense.
What they mean is if they know that people on the right will shoot them, then they will shoot first next time. There are many of the arguments around self defense is that I'm not going to wait to see because you've already killed our people. Think about what that means. Thirty people died in the riots alone before we saw this. A cop was shot in the head by the far left and no one on the right and no cop said, you take one of ours, we take two of yours, we take or whatever.
No one on the right and no one else have decided to go out and actually start hunting people down. The left is clearly the aggressor on this one. They don't care. The time for discussion to convince people is over. I see people on Facebook saying straight up, it's happening and expect more. I've had people send me death threats similar to what I'm hearing now, but they do it in a veiled way. They don't say things like I will do X to you.
They say things like, you know, expect something like this to happen. They send threats. That's just I'll put it the easiest it's the easiest way I can put it. I went over to read it. And I want to I want to show you something on Reddit. Our news, one of the top stories, one person shot and killed near downtown downtown Portland.
And the top comment reads, As someone from Portland, I have to tell you that this event has shook the city to its core. Even our Portland went out of their way to set the subject to prevent. A lot of people are arguing they know what's happening. No one really does. But here's our Portland mega thread events of the evening of August 29th, they say. So these are these are new comments. These are not top comments. This person said the level of cognitive dissonance in this thread is just absurd.
We're talking about the unprovoked, targeted murder of a Trump supporter.
And you guys are doing everything you possibly can to spin it around and blame the victim or Republicans in general. Don't you guys feel silly about this?
Someone said footage does not support your claim on either side. People are talking about, unfortunately, violence that happened, the type of violence that hasn't in scores or days until Chugs came out in force. Facts aren't in. We might never have the full story unprovoked targeted.
Were you there? Do you have a better you have better footage that show it is unprovoked and targeted because it looks provoked to me. At the very least, he's a willing participant. Perhaps. I'll tell you what, perhaps it was mutual combat, right? We've seen it. Two guys, two guys walked up. He did fire pepper spray. So in the end, what do we have? A guy with pepper spray was shot and killed by a dude with a gun.
So, yeah, not self-defense. And I would argue you can't say it's provocation if they both raised their weapons the exact same time.
One person said, I'm not all that great. I'm angry that the last thing we needed, Fox News now has their martyr.
I'm sure every one of this guy's life achievements will be plastered on Fox News to show how great great he was and their base into a fervor over the site. Plus, violence rip, dude, I'm sorry this happened to you, and I hope your family will find peace after this instead of hatred and anger. I respect that.
But there's something in this comment that I wanted to highlight, something I find particularly interesting. Whenever there is an event like this where some guy dies, the complaint is not about the destruction, it's about how it helps Donald Trump. What are we hearing now from the left? From Don Lemon?
It's showing up in the polls.
Fox News is going to show his achievements, shouldn't they, an innocent?
Well, I don't want to say anything, but a guy was killed in this conflict. Shouldn't they say here's who he was and here's what his life meant? Shouldn't they say he mattered to? It's funny to me how the left go to, for the most part, is the negative effects they will face because of the violence instead of the people who died.
Remarkable. You know, I've been sitting here saying I want the violence to stop.
That's that's, you know, my my my entire point was.
We don't want the right to go out, we don't want the left to go out, we don't want anybody shooting anybody else, but that's what's happening. And when death happens, my complaint is somebody died. And when they post someone's information, my, my, my warning is don't be like the left.
What the left does is they say when somebody dies right now, they're cheering for this man's death. I'm not exaggerating. On the ground in Portland, they were cheering, clapping and cheering. And the people on line are like, great. Now Trump is going to get raised and, you know, is going to go up in the polls. Is that your concern?
When they burn down buildings, they say, don't you care about us, I care about everybody, but you're burning buildings down and hurting people. They say nothing about the people who died in the riots. Where is this person's comment saying the last thing we needed, a corpse was found in a burned down building in Minneapolis? No, it's now Trump is going to look good. Here's why I don't understand. They complain that Fox News will slash this guy's image everywhere and it'll make Trump look good.
And it does. So shouldn't Trump shouldn't shouldn't he look good if he was right, if Trump came out and said this is wrong and needs to stop, shouldn't he look good? I'll tell you, this is the last thing I'll say on this point. I believe we need de-escalation.
Trump supporters and conservatives should not be going out and engaging in this.
You know why they are looking for anything to make Trump supporters look bad.
And the more the far left acts a fool, the more it proves Trump right. And now he's winning in the polls. It's a crazy day that whole the entire news space is being dominated by this. So here's what I'm gonna do. Donald Trump is now winning and it's and it's insane. This new these new polls came out showing Trump leading across the board nationally. We'll talk about that. The next segment will be coming up at YouTube. Dotcom slash cast at 4:00 p.m. Thanks for hanging out.
And I will see you all there. I'd like to ask Joe Biden a question, why do I have to wake up to videos of people dying? Why did he support the ongoing protests which led to extreme violence? And why won't he confront them now? Because here's the news. Joe Biden is not going to visit Kenosha on Monday. The Democrat is expected to travel elsewhere. Trump is planning to be in Wisconsin and the Wisconsin city on Tuesday. Wow.
I'd like to ask him, but he's a coward. That's right. Joe Biden is a coward. Donald Trump is going to Kenosha. He's going to confront the ongoing crisis. He's called for the National Guard to be deployed. He's called for law and order. Joe Biden has praised and supported the extremists.
Take a look at this poll. In an addendum to my main channel video over at YouTube, dotcoms lashed him cast. I want to talk about why we are seeing this polling shift for Trump. Poll watch says Breaking Democracy Institute shows Trump up nationally and in battleground states with a three point lead in the popular vote. This Twitter account from someone named Bambino's says, I was a reluctant Florida Trump voter in 2016. Now I'll crawl over broken glass to vote for him.
A vote for Trump is a vote for America. I said two years ago I would never vote for Trump, and I laughed. Earlier this year, I was actively supporting Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard. And within the past couple of weeks I've said, I'll probably vote for him. If it happens, I'd probably vote for him. And finally I'm voting for the guy.
And yeah, at this point, I would crawl over broken glass to to make sure that vote got through because Donald Trump, a vote for him, is a vote for America. And that means it means that even though I might not like the guy personally or professionally, I think he's a funny guy. You know, as an entertainer, even though I might disagree with some of his policies, I look at the left today, the cowardice of Joe Biden.
And I see Donald Trump as a vote for America.
And that doesn't mean I'm voting for Uncle Sam or voting for the government.
It means I'm voting for just to keep the country this person. But Ethem said this is a great summary of what's slowly happened to me over the last three and a half years. After the last three and a half months, I will walk through a hailstorm of bullets to cast my vote.
ME2 for Biden. Call me crazy, but I hate having a criminal wannabe dictator in the White House, let alone the chaos and unrest he's unleashed on this country. He's just not up for the job. Two posts where they say Trump or nothing, one post saying Biden or nothing. But I don't buy it. Trump to travel to Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday.
And it seems like a boring story, but there's a lot here in Kenosha. A young man was attacked, he ran and he defended himself. Now he is being charged. I missed this one.
He is being charged for possessing a weapon under the age of 18 and he may have been illegally possessing it. The I'm not a lawyer, so I have to see how this one plays out. Some have pointed out that there is an exemption in the law for people under the age of 18, 16 and 17 people who are age 16 and 17 who are carrying just a rifle or a shotgun. It doesn't say that specifically. It just says this law shall not apply except for the circumstances.
But it may be that he gets convicted. There's a new video that recently came out. I don't know where it came from, but it was posted by a friend of mine who is not particularly pro Trump, who said, why isn't anyone talking about this? One of the individuals who's with Kyle Rittenhouse says the police told us they were going to push them. This, you know, our way because we could deal with them and then they would leave.
Then you can clearly see in photos this guy was with him on the ground. Why did the police push the riders towards Kyle? It sounds like the cops set him up in the wake of all of this. And I'll elaborate on that when I have more details. But in the wake of all of this, Donald Trump has said, get me a plane, I'm going to Kenosha. Wow. You know, I've been to a lot of really dangerous places.
A lot of people have said I'm really brave to go on the front line of these riots and it's unrest. I haven't done it in the past couple of years, mostly because people recognize me and started physically attacking me. I have been physically attacked for quite some, you know, ever since I started. But there's a difference between people being like, hey, it's Tim pool, go get him and hey, camera guy to my face.
I've had people chase me around just trying to attack me. And they weren't even politically affiliated. They just thought it was funny. So I've been able to do it. But when I would go on the ground, I would know that there was real danger. Donald Trump, by some of the best security in the world, if not the best security in the world.
So I can only imagine he feels safe and secure, but he's going to go confront this straight up. No questions asked. He is going to Kenosha, where some of the most extreme instances of violence have occurred. Trump said, drop me in.
Centering, Joe Biden said, help, help. I'm going to go hide in the basement because I'm scared. Joe Biden is pathetic. This man cannot be president. I mean, even before all of this, you had, you know, the likes of Joe Rogan saying he can't be president.
He's not all there and we all know it. Now, you want to put this coward in office?
Look, man, you got liberals and like people who are actually, you know, some some people who are left being like, it can't be Biden men, not like anybody who actually cares about this country and likes it and wants it to continue.
Even if you are for reform, even if you are for dramatic reform, you're like Joe Biden is a vote for the end and the extremists like it. They do. You know, I saw somebody tweet earlier, I think it was Donald Trump Jr. saying Biden supporters and Biden voters. And I'm like, I'm thinking to myself, I'm going to tweet something where I'm like Donald Trump Jr., you're wrong.
These people are not Biden supporters. And I thought to myself, actually, they are not in the way you'd actually think. Like the far left doesn't support Biden in the sense that they're like, yay, Biden waving flags.
They support him in the sense where they're like, vote for him because he's easier to overthrow. I've actually seen those comments be posted, the far left to say straight up it's easier to overthrow a sleepy old man than it is a fascist.
They're right. Joe Biden is he's just can't even form sentences. Like obviously, we know that he can form sentences mostly, but he gaffes even his own commercials and he won't even go to Kenosha. Why? He's scared. And, you know, look, man, I'm going I'm going to try and be a little bit empathetic and compassionate here. I understand why he's scared, man. Joe Biden is nearly 80. Donald Trump's not too far behind, but Donald Trump certainly a bit more spry.
Joe Biden scared. Man, I understand that fear. I used to go on the ground and for obvious reasons, I can't go on the ground anymore. It's because of a high profile. Joe Biden feels that, too. He probably knows like, come on, man, I can't go down there.
People are going to be attacking me and throwing things at me and screaming at me, you know, and Donald Trump, he knows that, too. Trump is just less likely to care. I think Trump is very arrogant.
So he knows, you know, look, both both individuals have security. Both, you know, have Secret Service. I'm sure they'll be fine. But Biden scared and Trump's willing to confront it. That's why I don't think Biden is right for for for this country. CNN says Trump will travel to Kenosha on Tuesday to meet with law enforcement and to survey some of the damage from the recent protests. When asked if the president would meet with the family of Jacob Blak, 29 year old black man who was shot by police, Jud Deer, spokesman for the White House, said that the schedule hasn't been fully ironed out yet.
Blake's family led a march of hundreds of people on Saturday in Kenosha, demanding an end to police violence and systemic racism. Blake was shot. We understand this unrest in Wisconsin following the police shooting of Blake in Kenosha has quickly turned into a political flashpoint. When asked earlier Saturday if you will visit Kenosha, Trump said probably so before praising the federal presence in Wisconsin. He said, We've had tremendous success. As you know, we were finally able to get the Go-Ahead from the local authorities to send in the National Guard.
Within a few minutes of the guard, everybody cleared out and it became safe. Trump and the GOP used this week's Republican National Convention to shine a spotlight on violence and property damage that has resulted from some of the protests over racial injustice and police brutality this summer as fires had raged in Kenosha on consecutive nights. This story from just the other day and this story from today. Joe Biden is not expected to visit Kenosha on Monday, despite mounting pressure following Donald Trump's announcement over the weekend that he planned to go there to sources with knowledge of the former vice president's travel discussions say that while Biden is expected to travel, he will steer clear of the pivotal Midwestern battleground state on Monday.
The thinking, according to these people, is that Trump's trip to Kenosha could backfire on him, given Biden's continued messaging at the unrest in the city is an outgrowth of the president's rhetoric that inflames racial tensions is at it. Are you serious? The argument is that Joe Biden finds it politically expedient to not be a leader. He won't go. Oh, no, no, no. I want it to backfire on Trump so I won't go. Doesn't duty isn't duty more important than politicking?
Yeah. Maybe Trump knows it might backfire on them. If they think it does, then wouldn't Trump's political strategists say the same thing? I can't believe Joe Joe Biden's camp said that that it might backfire and therefore Joe Biden is not going to go. The politics of the national circumstances to Biden are more important than dealing with the unrest, talking with law enforcement and figuring out what's going on and confronting it head on. I want you to think about that for a second.
What that means under a Joe Biden presidency, while Donald Trump is not my first choice for president, I take a look at Joe Biden and think about this Iran nuclear deal, for instance. Tensions are escalating. Peace deals are breaking down. And Joe Biden says, I'm not going to have a meeting with these people because, you know, it might hurt me politically. So you know what?
I'm going to go, I don't know, somewhere else. And he goes to Europe or something. Do we want a leader who will not confront an issue because he's concerned about whether or not he'll get re-elected from it? No. And I'll tell you this, Trump's not perfect. I'm not going to sit here and pretend like he you know, there's certain things that Trump would or wouldn't do if if you thought it would hurt him politically. I think Trump will play that game, too.
But at least in this instance, it's not the case. And this to me is where where it matters, confronting the riots head on and dealing with them. Trump is dropping into the epicenter. Can't say the same for Biden. He's worried about politics. I'll leave it there next. Segment's coming up in just a few minutes.
Stick around and I will see you all shortly. I briefly mentioned this story in my main segment over at YouTube Dotcom Tim. But I want to do a longer segment about it. The suspension of journalist Cassandra Fairbanks from Twitter for supporting Kyle Rittenhouse, written, as you know, is the young man who was defending himself in Kenosha and ended up shooting three people, killing two. It is a tragic event that I think should not have happened for a lot of reasons.
And I think it's fair to say Kyle should not have been there. He shouldn't have had had to have been there. The police should have been there. The riders should not have been there. And I wish none of that happened. However, Kyle has been charged but not convicted, and he, like everyone else, is innocent until proven guilty. I've routinely said this about the rioters in the far left, the people I don't like, they're still innocent until proven guilty.
But Facebook and Twitter are now banning support for somebody and that's it.
Before he's even been proven guilty of anything, Cassandra Fairbanks said he did nothing wrong. She got suspended. Let's read the story from Breitbart. They say Gateway Pundit reporter Cassandra Fairbanks was recently suspended from Twitter for tweeting her support of Kyle Rittenhouse, who was recently arrested over shooting of three riders in Kenosha. In response, lawyers for Rittenhouse warned Twitter they intend to hold the platform fully liable. This is where things start getting spicy, they say. Can we put a reporter, because on your famous Twitter account was suspended earlier today for tweeting, Kyle Rittenhouse did nothing wrong.
Twitter claims that the statement is glorifying violence. A screenshot of the page can be seen below. She received a 12 hour suspension and they say, we've determined that you violated Twitter rules. So we've temporarily limited some of your account features while in the state. You can still browse Twitter, but your limited blah, blah, blah.
A second email informed Fairbanks that she was suspended for tweeting her support of Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager from Antioch, Illinois, who was arrested in Kenosha following a shooting of three rioters. They say protesters come out of Breitbart. That's all she tweeted. Cassandra tweeted on the 27th and they apparently just suspended her.
Rittenhouse has been accused of shooting three protesters, two of whom died from their wounds, although footage from the shooting has led many to argue that Britain has acted in self-defense. Fairbanks commented on the temporary suspension, telling Breitbart News, The fact that you can no longer defend someone on social media who has not been convicted of any crime should shock and terrify everyone. They want to control all narratives, and we are letting them get away with it. And she goes on to say, Kyle Rittenhouse did nothing wrong.
John Pierce, attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, condemned Twitter for suppressing a journalist's account, calling the act a brazen act of censorship and warning that he and fellow attorney Lin Wood intend to hold Twitter fully liable for its actions. And, quote, A journalist just got banned from Twitter for simply posting Kyle Rittenhouse did nothing wrong. Twitter and other big tech companies are now engaged in brazen and outright censorship of political speech that can no longer pretend to be neutral. Internet computer service providers protected from defamation claims by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
They have now stepped in the arena and are publishers. Myself and Ledgewood intend to hold Twitter fully liable to Nicholas Sandmen written and every other person whose life it has tried to destroy simply because it disagrees with their political viewpoints. On the same day that Twitter suspended Fairbanks, the platform was flooded with users glorifying the murder of a right wing activist in Portland yesterday. Section 230 basically says that so long as you're acting in good faith, you cannot be sued for libel like Twitter, basically Internet computer services.
So if I comment on Twitter, you can't sue Twitter. You got to sue me. However, Twitter allows people to glorify violence straight up. Why ban Cassandre Fairbanks? Because they are not an Internet service provider. They are a publisher of specific political opinion. Therefore, they have no protections and they can be sued. In this tweet, Jordan Black said that this is what patriotism looks like. I seem to remember an entire generation of Americans who killed fascists and we're called heroes.
This is in reference to Elijah Schaefer pointing out how Black Lives Matter said that they're not sad that an effing fascist died tonight. They cheered for it. This person said a right wing fascist was killed in Portland. That's crazy showing someone dancing happy. This person said a fascist got killed in Portland. I see. And it shows someone sitting in a chair not caring. Republican fascist killed in Portland. In a comment to Breitbart News, a Twitter spokes spokesman said it is against the Twitter rules to condone or glorify acts or perpetrators of violence.
Our teams are proactively reviewing and taking action on tweets that glorify violence. These tweets will need to be removed by the account owners before they can continue to use Twitter accounts dedicated to or repeatedly sharing. This type of content will be suspended. Breitbart News or News report on the Wisconsin shooting incident can be found here. Breitbart News will update readers with more information. It's not just that they allow the left to glorify violence. Twitter actively allows the far left to organize.
In one tweet, Andino says more evidence of Antifa actually organizing as an organization and doing it on Twitter per their own words they never openly identify as a member to outsiders. He then shows several images. Antifa identify. Tweet says it was brought to our attention that someone is attempting to imposter us. We would like to make it clear that we will not openly admit to strangers in any capacity that we are organizing as Pacific Northwest resistance, they say.
If you have any information about a green haired individual claiming to represent us, please reach out about further descriptions and identify this person. We would like to get to the bottom of this. There should be zero instances of Pacific Northwest resistance members identifying themselves to someone not involved or affiliated with us. Stay safe out there and you can see antifa, mutual aid, etc.. This is just one example of them using Twitter to organize and to encourage people to communicate and engage with them.
And he also says Portland anti-war accounts organize on Twitter. This person from Occupy PD is at Occupy PD Xang tonight. We need blockade materials. Even if you can only drop things off, please do. Twitter is facilitating terrorism. At what point do we shut it down, honestly? I don't know, maybe I don't know what Trump can do. Here's one Antifa in Colorado are organizing three days of actions, often code for writing at the state capital. I don't care if they call it a riot.
I don't care what they call it. It is a riot. They can call it whatever they want. They can say a picnic. And we're we're we're organizing a bake, a bake sale. Bring your cupcakes.
Bring your milk shakes. You get the point. If Antifa is organize organizing and they engage in riots, then at a certain point they should stop being given the benefit of the doubt. And I'm not talking about an issue of free speech. I'm talking about my private platform. Right. This is what they say when Cassandra gets banned, they say, well, it was against the rules and she should have known better. This is against the rules, too.
They're not doing anything about it. They're allowing them to organize. Guess what? Some militia in Kenosha got shut down on Facebook and all these lefties were screaming, why won't Facebook banned them? Yeah, why won't Facebook venema why won't Twitter ban them? I'm all about free speech, but organizing events is very different. On Facebook, the Kenosha Group was apparently just saying bombastic things that some people said they likened to incitement. This is direct organizing. They could not engage in this behavior without Twitter.
And Twitter allows it because I think for one, Jack Dorsey is not really the CEO of Twitter. And I think he's just a figurehead. But I believe that still he and many others support this. They want it to happen. They want everything to be burnt to the ground. They do because they're destroyer's there are people who revel in destruction, pain and suffering. Now, of course, they think they're the good guys.
I don't know what their end game is other than to destroy everything. And apparently that's good to them. There's a bunch of tweets of this man, Rosatti Antifa organizing violence. There's one antifa organizing a riot. Just go to endnotes page. You can see him doing it over and over and over again. But heaven forbid a journalist defend someone who who has not been convicted of any crime. What are you to do? What do you do about it?
I don't know. This is why I don't like Republicans either, because they don't seem to care about this. They don't do anything. Trump isn't a Republican. And I've said it many, many times and many people have said it, but that the time for action was a long time ago. You have Democrats fanning the flames, endorsing this. Joe Biden unwilling to actually go and confront the riots and social media suppressing information, suppressing opinion that goes against their orthodoxy, their narrative.
So what are we supposed to do if the comments have been taken over and they are being destroyed? A lot of people believe that a vote for Donald Trump could end all this. Maybe. I certainly I'm hoping at this point Trump wins to put an end to this because it's been getting worse and worse, faster and faster. It is happening very, very quickly. I mean, you read these stories, it's funny. It's like it's all dystopian novels.
And the one one common thread is how fast it all happens. And it's true. It does happen very, very fast. But I got to tell you, man, even if Trump wins, it won't be enough. You will need every you will need Republicans to win the House and the Senate and the presidency and then to enact Section two thirty reform. However, there's another there's another bit of hope with the lawyers threatening Twitter that they're going to sue Twitter.
Twitter may have overstepped their bounds as it pertains to Section 230, and this may be the end for them because they engaged in such overt partisanship. They have no defense. I don't know how it would work. Here's here's what I imagine what happens. Someone sues Twitter, then Twitter tries claiming we will dismiss it under Section two thirty grounds. But the lawyers will argue Section two thirty doesn't apply because there is no interpretation of good faith protections. When Twitter allows violence to be glorified, they're just removing opinions they don't like.
In which case, how are they any different from the wash? You know, The New York Times. Listen, The New York Times, as a company, as a company, has individuals who vet and post things.
Just because Twitter doesn't pay people doesn't change the fact that they allow people to post things. If they're if they're selectively removing things not in good faith and not because it's objectionable, then I don't believe they will have protections and they should be sued for libel. Perhaps you just need a wave of people to file lawsuits against Twitter for libel and defamation when they get smeared.
I don't know. We'll see how it plays out. I got one more segment coming up in a few minutes.
Stick around and I'll see you all shortly. As chaos erupts around the country. Guns and ammo sales are through the roof.
I know personally, because you've heard it from me several times now, I went and bought a bunch of guns after saying earlier this year I would never have a gun in my house. I now have many guns and it's been very, very difficult to find ammunition. But this this story here may be one of the most wow stories I've ever seen county voters to decide on Second Amendment sanctuary status. You know what? I wouldn't have said this a year ago, but I almost I think I completely agree with it.
Listen, we're not talking about saying we won't allow people to arrest you for having a gun.
We're talking about basically nullifying every single law pertaining to guns, including background checks. I kid you not. And this is an Oregon. Take a look. Take a look at this story from KOMO News. They say, Astoria, Oregon. A measure on the November ballot will ask voters in a northwestern Oregon county whether it should be a Second Amendment sanctuary. The historian reports voters in Clatsop County will decide whether to prohibit county resources from being used to enforce any local, state and federal law or regulation that restricts the right to keep and bear firearms, accessories or ammunition.
The rule would cover any tax levy or fee on the purchase or ownership of firearms tracking requirements, background checks, confiscation orders or any restriction on the open or concealed carrying of firearms.
Wow. It's not the first time we've seen things like this, but I'm not sure the other sanctuary claims went that far. I mean, in Virginia, we saw a lot of declarations about sanctuary counties where they wouldn't confiscate people's guns. But think about it. What they're saying in this county is that any restriction, any you could walk around with, like a light machine gun. OK, here's a lot of things.
Something people don't really understand. You can actually buy a tank with like a full auto 50 cal or something like that. I was reading a story because these leftists like to claim, well, you can't own a tank. Actually, you can. It's really funny when they say things like when the Second Amendment was written, they didn't actually mean like modern machine, like warfare machines. Like you're not going to buy a Scud missile. My friends, did you know that back then there were things called privateers where individuals owned warships and in Europe they would carry letters of Mark allowing them to go around as a privately owned warship, blowing up other ships, taken their stuff.
Yeah, privateers. That's it was it was like a lot of us imagine piracy was just, you know, like rogue operatives, which existed. But a lot of it was sanctioned by their government as long as they attacked the enemy. So, yeah, back then, the Second Amendment did allow you to have cannons and warships. So what do you what would happen?
I mean, this sounds like a great place to live. I wouldn't want to live in Oregon, mind you. But, wow, if they pass this in November, are people going to go out and buy? Like, I don't I'm not going to speculate, but you can buy some real big guns.
Like, there's got to be some restriction, right?
Like, could you have artillery shells put a Howitzer in your back yard and be like, no restrictions?
I don't know. It sounds pretty crazy, but check this out. We got the story from Oregon live. Three reasons firearm sales have jumped 94 percent is from an associate professor.
They say, I made the covid-19 pandemic and protests for racial justice. The gun industry's trade association estimates that gun sales from March to July were up 94 percent.
Firearms industry consultants estimate July sales alone were two million units. These estimates are based on the number of background checks conducted by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The FBI report that eight of the eight of the weeks in this period are in the top ten highest weeks since the agency began collecting data in 1998. Gun sales typically have seasonal cycles, with more guns being sold in winter months, an increase and increase in presidential election years. And after high profile mass shootings, however, the 2020 pandemic spurred record setting surge in demand, they say.
Our research examines American gun culture and offers insights into the complex relationship between Americans and guns. We believe there are three general reasons why people are purchasing firearms won independence and security. A study we presented in twenty nineteen shows that Americans feel buying a gun is a way of asserting and maintaining independence. Independence is threatened during the pandemic when a concern for public health may curtail some individual freedoms, including the freedom to travel, operate some businesses, assemble in large groups or visit the elderly.
Gun ownership. Can be motivated by the belief that having guns helps to ensure freedom to do and live as one chooses, particularly for individuals concerned with protection and defense, kind of sounds like they're saying they're worried about the government taking over.
Maybe not, but it does. The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that 40 percent of recent gun buyers are doing so for the first time, partly driven by citizens perceived need to protect themselves in a period of uncertainty and civil unrest, as well as calls to defund the police. This idea is supported by data showing that more than 99 percent of recent sales are handguns, which are typically used for self-defense. And by research showing that buying a gun for self-defense can be motivated by feelings that the world is generally dangerous.
Gun owners also find comfort and security in routines. This means existing gun owners may purchase additional guns in an effort to maintain a sense of normalcy to market signals and forces. Another reason relates to market conditions. Governors chose to include gun retailers as essential businesses, allowing them to remain open. This reinforce the legitimacy of guns and gun retailers in the U.S., strengthening by strengthening perceptions of gun purchases as appropriate and necessary. Meanwhile, gun retailers have struggled to keep firearms, ammunition and accessories in stock.
When consumers face scarcity, they may experience a sense of urgency to purchase. This is a really good point that I think is often being missed. While most of us are assuming that the purchase of guns is due primarily to people being scared, it could be that there are a lot of people who are saying, oh man, if I don't get it now, I won't be able to. Not that they're actually scared about the end being nigh, but thinking I kind of want one.
If I don't go now, I won't get one. And then everyone rushes out and then there's a shortage that could be you know, that's a fair point to make. Social connection and recreation. They say finally, guns can provide a tangible basis for social connection, social bonding through consumption. Retailers facilitate this by serving as a social hub and providing expertise and specific products.
This, I think, is complete and utter B.S. And I mean, maybe but gun people have their private clubs.
They do their thing. I don't believe anyone's going out right now like I'm bored. What can I do? I know I've never bought a gun before, but I'll go do it now.
I think it's fair to say there is a certain aspect of this that people who already have guns are thinking, I'm going to go see what's up at the gun shop and go hang out and see what they're talking about. Talk politics that I get. OK, so fine. Maybe I'm being a little harsh, but for the most part, I think people are scared. Riots are erupting and guns are being sold out or mostly ammo. It's really hard to find ammo.
I you know, my local shop, they got odd caliber bullets and a lot of birdshot. And I had a lot of people say to me, hey, man, birdshot is not that bad. And my response is, yes, birdshot is better than no shot. I get it.
But, you know, if you had your choice, you'd want, I don't know, buckshot, nine millimeter, at least I'm not a big gun person. Never have been. But I'm certainly starting to me. And my reason for buying weapons is because for the most part, the unrest, I will not be caught with my pants down as riding erupts across this country and as we're entering into this election cycle where no one has at, no one knows it's going to happen.
I'm not only buying weapons, I'm getting as far away from these cities as I can. And that's fairly far away. So far, I ain't got no Internet. That's the big problem with trying to move to this new expanded facility. No Internet. I've actually got to call the company and see if they'll lay the lines down because there's no Internet.
So maybe I'll be able to do it.
But I think there's a lot of reasons that people are motivated to finally get active. But it says something else. People are paying attention. People are absolutely paying attention. And while the left tries to claim that all the violence and everything is Trump's fault, I don't buy it. If people are rushing out to buy guns, they have some idea of what's happening. And they're not going to be blaming Trump for what's happening locally. They're going to be asking their local politicians to send the police out, John Doe and Jane Doe and in the Buffalo suburbs, who are like, I'm going to buy my first gun, aren't calling up Trump and being like, why are there rioters outside my house?
They're calling their councilman. They're calling their alderman. They're calling their mayor. They're calling their governor, their congressman or man or woman. And they're saying what is happening in our neighborhoods and why won't you send the police? Federal police aren't patrolling my neighborhoods and they're not patrolling yours either. I mean, most of yours, some of them, they probably are because the feds do come out right.
Maybe in DC, especially because they are federal police. But I'm pretty sure they're not blaming Trump for this. And if they're paying attention, they know who's really at fault for the chaos and who is not getting a handle on it. So I'll throw it back to this story coming out of Oregon. This will be really, really fascinating. I wonder what people will buy if they agree that there is no restriction at all on firearms.
Can you define firearm for me? Are people going to have, like, directed energy weapons like. What's the restriction, man? This is going to be crazy. I think people are going to have fun with it and I think people might start making their own crazy weapons or whatever a to a sanctuary. That sounds amazing. Now, I do want to point out Clatsop County, this is in northern northwestern Oregon. I don't know exactly what this is.
Maybe it's more rural, but if it's Northwestern, I imagine it's still in between Portland and, say, Tacoma or Seattle.
So maybe not that rural but rural enough either way. Could you imagine what it's going to be like if these people have no restrictions and Antifa tries going through their town, like make it up or just end up in there or whatever people are to come out?
The craziest things you've ever seen. Maybe I'm wrong, not a gun person, but I'll leave it there. Next segment coming up tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. Thanks for hanging out. And I will see you all then.
