PORTLAND: Good luck with your ANTIFA future

Wikimedia Commons

Imagine being mayor of a city where you have to kowtow to the Antifa constituency. That is a new low. Welcome to Portland, or New Stalingrad as it may eventually have to rename itself. Portland's actual nickname is "Stumptown," which is very appropriate since charred stumps is all that's going to be left of it if Antifa and BLM are allowed to continue running riot in their streets.

How pathetic is it that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler would rather move out of his luxury condo than do anything to get the thugs in ninja pajamas to stop terrorizing him and his city? And the thing is, Mayor Ted has even less excuse than most mayors for not doing anything, because he is also Portland's Police Commissioner. How do you get to be both Mayor and Police Commissioner at the same time? Easy – you give yourself the job.

Portland has an unusual form of government where its city council members manage all the city's bureaus. And who gets to decide which bureaus get assigned to the council members? The Mayor. So, after Wheeler was elected Mayor of Portland in 2016, he put himself in charge of the Police, the Office of Equity and Human Rights, Emergency Management, the Budget Office, Office of Management & Finance, the Portland Development Commission, and the Housing Bureau (that one must come in very handy now that Antifa has forced him out of his condo).

I feel bad for any sane citizens of Portland, if there are any left. It's bad enough that they have to deal with a do-nothing Mayor/Police Commissioner while gangs set buildings on fire with people inside. Imagine how bad it could get if the "Antifa" candidate defeats Wheeler in the November election. Okay, there's not an official Antifa candidate, because remember, Antifa's supposedly not even any kind of official organization. But there is a very pro-Antifa candidate named Sarah [Eye-Anna-Roan] Iannarone who came in second in the May primary with 24% of the vote. That put her in the runoff in November against Ted Wheeler.

Sarah Iannarone is a longtime community organizer – hmm, where have we heard that before? Last year, she tweeted:

"To those who say Antifa are violent thugs: I am not a violent thug and I am Antifa. I am Antifa because the Red Hats are coming after brown & black people, after Jews, after queer & trans people, and more."

In July, she tweeted:

"The cops are the violent agitators, full stop."

Last December, Playboy magazine interviewed her and her campaign manager with the headline " Antifa in Focus." In the interview she says:

"I feel a responsibility to change the public discourse around antifascism, absolutely. Because this problem exists within the system, it's important we use radical tactics…"

Her platform states one of her goals is:

"destigmatizing antifascism and clearly demonstrating that the people of Portland wish to stand up to the rise of fascism and white nationalism… The demonization of antifascism is dangerous for democracy."

Here she is in an interview just last month on Portland's NBC affiliate…


So, the answer is no, she won't denounce the violence. In fact, she says it might not be enough and there you have it, setting buildings on fire with people inside them is now just "part of the healthy democratic process."

But you see, Portland is just so overrun by fascists, they have to confront them. Right. Portland is just right there on the verge of becoming The Handmaid's Tale.

There were 15 homicides in July in Portland – the deadliest month in Portland in 30 years. If you play with fire, you might get burned. Portland's government can't handle the chaos as it is — just imagine how much worse it will be if the ultimate Antifa fan-girl becomes Mayor.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
