Cheers to U.S. Attorney Billy Williams and @U.S. Attorney Oregon for bringing a federal felony charge against "Jacob Michael Gaines, 23, a Texas man currently residing in a recreational vehicle in Portland" for attacking a federal agent with a hammer. https://twitter.com/USAO_OR/status/1282798181558947840?s=20 Good start.
Dear United States Attorney Billy Williams and @U.S. Attorney Oregon: They attacked a federal officer with a hammer. Now, you must drop the hammer on them. This is all part of a much larger RICO conspiracy. Do your jobs. https://www.justice.gov/usao-or/meet-us-attorney https://www.foxnews.com/us/federal-officer-portland-hammer-protests-arrests

It is because pride in our civilization is entirely justified—which does not negate an awareness of its shortcomings and of past crimes—that we must understand the phenomenon of oikophobia since by understanding it we can finally hope to combat it. https://quillette.com/2019/10/07/oikophobia-our-western-self-hatred/
Some of the very best analysis and commentary you’ll find.
The story this week was that police in Phoenix shot an unarmed man sleeping in his car. Protesters demand answers, but the answers are that he wasn’t sleeping, and he wasn’t unarmed. New video on the latest injustice that wasn’t: https://youtu.be/RjMGUZ1RBGA
