A social media post (which has been removed) by a member of the Washington National Guard has been shared more than 7000 times since it was written on June 12th. It’s a true education in mob mentality.

As Toby Cowern says, “Look how much ‘othering’ has been done already. Once that’s happening there’s a big problem.”

He’s right – and here’s the shocking truth about what’s really going on in Seattle from a person who had a front-row ticket to the mayhem.

An eye-witness account

I previously said I had a lot to say regarding my experiences while in downtown Seattle [Incoming VERY long post…]. When I came home, I was exhausted, angry, and saddened by what I had experienced. I said I needed to share what happened, but I also said I needed some time to rest and reflect. My unit was activated for 12 days. We worked long hours but we continued to stay dedicated to the state and the mission. I can’t stop that now. I’ve been up all night, trying my best to put into words what I experienced and observed. This is too important to wait. I rarely post on social media, but I’m making this post, hoping it reaches those that want to know the truth. I can imagine, given the current environment, this post may cause some controversy. That is not my intention what-so-ever. I agree the excessive use of force in Minnesota was inexcusable but reacting with hatred and violence is contradictory to the message of peace and change. Either way, people need to know what’s actually happening behind the guise of this “movement.” Whether localized or nationalized, what I witnessed NEEDS TO STOP!

Activation:

I was working nights and the day of my phone call, I had difficulties sleeping that morning. I had a lot on my mind, and I decided I was going to stay up and do some yard work. As I was preparing to go outside, I started receiving text messages and phone calls. “We’ve been activated! Hit time at the armory is 1700!” I looked at my watch and I had maybe an hour before hit time. “Well, I’m going to be late…” I thought. I immediately responded to the text messages and phone calls, telling them I would be there as soon as possible. Why was I going to be late?

My unit is in Western Washington and I live in Southeastern Washington… to drive, at a pace much faster than the speed limit, I’d be lucky to make it in three hours… Without hesitation, I grabbed all my staged military gear and threw it into the back of my vehicle. I figured, “Heck, if it’s an emergency, they’re not going to have time to put out a packing list… so, I mise well bring everything.” As I was throwing military gear into my vehicle, I received text messages telling me to pack for at least a week. “Wow, this is serious…” I thought. Being activated and expecting the mission to last a week or more, whatever the activation was for, it was going to be an uphill battle… I threw a few uniforms and a week’s worth of clothing in my rucksack and proceeded to drive to the armory.

Preparation:

I arrived at the armory in the evening and realized I had now been awake for over 24 hours. I contacted my chain of command and determined we’d leave at zero dark hundred for Seattle. I gathered my issued equipment, added it to my ruck sack, and tried to take a one-hour nap. I awoke to people on the move and bright fluorescent lights. It felt like I had just closed my eyes, but it was go-time. I grabbed my bags and met my unit in the parking lot of the armory. There was no time to waste! We loaded every cot we had, all our personal bags, and whatever we could quickly think of that we might need. We loaded our transportation and were off to Seattle in what seemed like minutes…

The Build Up:

On our way to Seattle, I had time to dwell and self-reflect. What’s so out of control that the Guard would be called up? Who and/or what am I going to be protecting? Am I going to be protecting rights, life, property, or all the above? I told myself that no matter what happens, I will do my utmost to remain impartial, to uphold the Constitution, to protect the rights of the citizens of the United States, and to protect life and property to the best of my ability. As a Soldier, we take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. Regardless of the political climate, a Soldier has the responsibility to remain impartial, to ensure all citizens’ rights are protected and that the Constitution is adhered to. As we approached Seattle, I did so with an open mind and a sympathetic heart. I prayed that I may understand whoever needs our help, that I may do my job to the utmost of my ability, and that the rights of all those involved would be preserved.

The Gear:

Per order of the Governor of Washington State, Jay Inslee, the Washington Army National Guard went into Seattle COMPLETELY UNARMED. We had NO way to defend ourselves and HAD TO rely upon the SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT to protect us… Not all of us had vests or plates that would stop rifle bullets. In the beginning, most of us didn’t even have shin guards… A few Soldiers didn’t have batons… Shields were hit or miss, but we ended up sharing where we could…

The Riots:

Oddly enough, my first day was one of the hardest days. We touched ground and were immediately dispatched to the Seattle Police Department (SPD) East Precinct near the intersection of 11th St and Pine St (Capitol Hill). This location would become very familiar for me, due to all of the “peaceful protesters” rioting here almost every night… Only one other unit arrived the day before we did, and they were sent to Westlake Center due to it being actively vandalized and destroyed.

Before I talk about the first day, I have to admit that my squad was later sent to Westlake. While I was there, I saw remnants of fire and broken glass everywhere I went. Almost all glass areas were boarded up and the area was devoid of business. What I, and most non-locals didn’t know, is that Westlake is a shopping center. It’s blocks upon blocks of popular businesses in downtown Seattle. It’s essentially an outdoor shopping mall… Due to the fact that not a single store was open, I was curious about the extent of damage to the area the night before. While I was looking through photos on Google while on break, one of the Seattle Police Department Police Officers pointed to an area down the street and said, “The bastards torched my patrol car right there.” As she said that, the newspaper headline photo lit my smartphone screen as I could see protesters celebrating around broken business windows and a couple vehicles that were aflame. I thought to myself, “Why would someone do this?” As I read through the headlines, I came to realize the businesses were broken into, looted, and then set ablaze… all in the name of “Black Lives Matter.” I tried my best to connect the dots… but how does social injustice relate to graffiti, theft, malicious mischief, and arson? If there was a specific political statement from these crimes, even the news media didn’t interpret or understand it… it was obviously a crime of opportunity…

Returning back to my first day at East Precinct, I was assigned as one of the squad leaders. My squad, consisting of primarily Soldiers from my unit, were fairly distinct. Like everyone else in my unit, we wore a black vest that distinguished us against every other Guardsman in Seattle. I could explain why, but it’s not relevant. If you want proof of where I was, find the Soldiers with black vests in Seattle… I was one of them.

Anyways…

On the first day, we were initially on the line behind the Seattle Police Officers at the East Precinct. The Officers weren’t carrying shields like us that day. During the protests, I observed Officers shaking hands with those yelling at them. I also saw one Officer approach a male crying in the crowd. The Officer asked the male if he wanted a hug and the protester replied, “Yes!” I watched as the Officer embraced and comforted the crying protester. Seeing these things, I thought to myself “Why am I here? Seattle PD obviously has a connection with the population, what am I supposed to accomplish or prevent here?” It didn’t take long for that to change.

I took up position on our right flank, recognizing a weakness in our line. A female quickly made eye contact with me, while recording me with her cell phone, and started yelling… “HEY! ARMY! Where are you from?!” I told her I was a Soldier with the Washington Army National Guard. She asked if I lived in Washington State. I told her, “Yes, I’m a citizen of Washington State, just like you.” She then abruptly said, “Why do you guys keep killing us?” I told her, “Excuse me?! I haven’t killed anyone…” She looked at me, befuddled, and said… “You guys keep killing us! You know, your training… don’t you have some sort of limitation where you can’t kill people?! You know, where you can only shoot us if we shoot at you?” At this point, I obviously knew she was referring to our Rules of Engagement (RoE) but it was obvious she was trying to provoke me. I tried to explain to her that what she was saying wasn’t true, but she kept interrupting me. Every time I’d try to speak, she’d raise her voice and interrupt me. As she continued to escalate, I recognized she was trying to provoke an exaggerated reaction out of me. I looked at her, shrugged, and proceeded to ignore her as I scanned the crowd. She grumbled and said, “You don’t even know your own regulations?!” I looked at her, shrugged again, and continued to ignore her… As I was scanning, I saw a male protester point out and move towards an African-American Police Officer.

The protester proceeded to yell, asking why the Officer was on the “white-man’s side.” He called the Officer an “Uncle Tom,” a “pretender,” a “race traitor,” and a N-word I’d prefer not to use. Every fiber of my being wanted to lash out. How can you use racist terms and protest racism while using it in a derogatory manner towards someone else? How can you even find fault in someone that is remaining peaceful, that is protecting your rights, and is obviously concerned for the community?! I was furious as the protester continued berating the Officer… We then got replaced by another squad for relief.

During their “protest” I observed multiple people tell others to “shut up” because of their “white privilege.” I also saw two protesters almost get into a fight because one wasn’t “letting the black man speak.” Another protester, when a male had a megaphone, yelled “Listen to him! He’s black!” I was raised, under the impression, that equality means treating everyone equally… Race won’t cease to be an issue until we stop talking about it. All my brothers and sisters are one color: green. It’s cool to honor your heritage, but no one gets special anything due to their skin tone… Everyone is treated the same and everything is equal. How is this (equality) a hard concept?

I talked to my Soldiers during our downtime. I had a few African-American Soldiers in my squad. I pointed out and talked to them about what I had just observed. I told them they may be focused upon, that the racists in the crowd might single them out because they’re African-American. It wasn’t long before we returned to the protest line.

I should start gambling because it didn’t take long for the African-American Soldiers to get singled out. I’m not going to repeat the hate, racism, and discontent directed at my Soldiers. If they feel the need to share what was directed at them by the hypocritical “protesters,” they’ll do so. Either way, every single Soldier in my unit was phenomenal. Not a single Soldier lost their military bearing or professionalism. Not a single protester got anyone in my squad to break their military bearing… Not a single Soldier lashed out at the complete and utter stupidity of the racism coming from the hypocrites… After each one of my Soldiers was focused upon, I pulled them aside and later commended them on their military bearing and discipline. I reiterated to each one of them that the rioters were trying to provoke them to react. I told my Soldiers to maintain their discipline and to not worry about the protesters overstepping. I told them I’d be right there, to address any protesters touching them or pushing the boundaries.

I have to say… I’m a prior Active Duty Soldier and these Guard Soldiers were on point! They must have had some hard charging Drill Sergeants because all of them maintained their military bearing through this whole ordeal and I’m proud as hell to call them brothers and sisters!

Some highlights:

“All of you Soldiers should have died in Iraq!”
“You’re nothing but a bunch of Vietnam baby killers!”
“The only thing you know what to do is murder people!”
“All people should be afraid of you, you’re nothing but killers!”
“You guys must be ready to kill people with your kung-fu gloves.”
“I’m legitimately afraid of you guys because all you know what to do is kill.”
“Who exactly are you here to protect?”
“You’d rather protect property than people!”
“You should be pointing weapons at the police!”
“You’re on the wrong side, racists!”
“Stop following orders and join us!”
“You’re too dumb to form your own opinion.”
“What Matters? Black Lives Matter… Are you too stupid to get that?”
“You guys need to stop shooting people.”
“You guys need to stop gassing us.”

(We NEVER had firearms, Oleoresin Capsicum [OC], CS “tear” gas, or any other “weapons”)
-Some of these comments were made towards us while we were just standing in an area, away from any “protest line” without a riot shield…

On that first day, they continued to try to provoke a response from the Officers and the Guardsman. NO ONE PROVIDED A RESPONSE. I was on the line, near the center right. I remember a plastic water bottle being thrown across the line by the “protesters” on my right side towards a Police Officer. Soon after, a bottle landed on the left side, right behind our line. I yelled out “SHIELDS UP!” Without hesitation, our ENTIRE LINE of Guardsman moved forward, and placed ourselves between the rioters and the Police Officers.

The “protesters” began throwing rocks, glass bottles, and chunks of concrete. I was out there ALL day. There wasn’t any construction going on. There wasn’t a pile of concrete or bricks anywhere to be seen. All I saw were younger people with heavy backpacks. THEY WERE GRABBING CHUNKS OF CONCRETE FROM THEIR BACKPACKS TO THROW AT US. Why is that important? Why would you carry chunks of concrete to a protest? Because you PLAN on using/throwing the concrete… When the concrete began to rain down on us, it came from ALL directions. What does that mean? It was COORDINATED. THEY PLANNED TO ASSAULT US WITH CONCRETE. I didn’t realize until later, but I have to tell you… it really pissed me off when I thought about the situation I had just experienced. As they were throwing these items, the Officers tried to protect us by using less-lethal means (OC/CS/etc). NO LETHAL FORCE WAS USED. Could the Seattle Police Department use lethal force in that situation? Absolutely… a chunk of concrete to the head can KILL someone…

What NO ONE realizes, because the media is bias as hell, at least three police officers were injured that day before SPD used less-lethal means to de-escalate the situation. One Officer took a chunk of concrete to his right eye… last I heard, he’s expected to LOSE his eye. I retrieved a video from that confrontation with the “protesters.” You can see items flying towards us as SPD deploys OC (pepper spray). Notice the second use of OC, the long burst? That was over my right shoulder next to my head. I got some OC contamination from that, which was okay because I was trained for it… The crowd continued to throw concrete. At least two pieces of concrete hit my shield. I later took a picture of my shield, WHICH WAS BRAND NEW, to show the extent of crap being thrown at us.

SPD then deployed CS gas. We had planned for this possibility, telling the squad on deck to come relieve us after they put their mask on. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. As CS was deployed, the crowd began to throw the CS canisters back towards us along with more concrete. I couldn’t put my mask on since I would have had to drop my shield to do so. I was currently protecting SPD Officers and I wasn’t going to allow the Officers behind me to get hurt. So, as Guardsman were pulled off the line by other Guardsman and SPD, I HELD MY GROUND. I’ve been through the CS gas chamber with the U.S. Army, but this was so much worse. I stood there, trying to breathe for as long as I could.

At one point, I looked forward, and saw a female pointing a black pipe towards me. My thought in that moment: “You’ve got to be kidding me… they’re using potato guns too?!” As she turned to her right, I noticed it was a leaf blower. A “PROTESTER” brought a leaf blower to blow CS gas towards us… (It’s not like they were anticipating that, right?!) As the clouds of CS were parting due to her efforts, I saw a male… wearing a black hoodie, with the hoodie up, a bandanna, black pants, and a black backpack, in a throwing position. I watched as he threw a large piece of concrete (at least 5” x 5”), that was shaped in a triangle, directly at me. As it hit my shield (notice the white impact mark on the picture), I thought to myself… if I was armed, I would have shot him… The cloud of CS overtook me. As I struggled to breathe, I looked to my left and NO ONE was there. I looked to my right and saw only ONE OTHER SOLDIER. I began to fall back as a sea of navy blue rushed forward. SPD and the Washington State Patrol to the rescue! I returned to a rally point, dropped my shield, put on my gas mask, and began helping other soldiers that had been out on the line. As the smoke began to clear, I took a couple photos to remember this moment and the anger that flooded my emotions.

The week continued and we were sent where SPD needed us. We were told we had begun to get a reputation with SPD. Our actions, while at East Precinct, showed we could be depended upon and we were there to help. The Guard had arrived, and we’d be there, standing shoulder to shoulder with SPD, against these anarchist/communist rioters in Seattle. We saw through the protester’s “cause.” They were using the horrible situation that occurred in Minnesota as an opportunity to cause chaos, to loot and steal, and to destroy everything in their way to gain momentum for their “revolution.” The group was quickly identified as Antifa, a communist action group that was in the process of being labeled as a terrorist organization by the Commander-in-Chief.

I don’t like politics and I’m not going to talk about politics. When you’re in the military, you give up that luxury. It’s something I don’t mind giving up, since discussing politics is as pointless as convincing a stubborn person they’re wrong. It’s all opinion and people typically already have their mind made up. Getting into an argument over politics usually ends in an escalation and personal attacks, especially when discussed between two people that have already passionately made up their mind.

Needless to say, I was very angry. I’m a protector by nature. When someone tries to hurt another person, and they do so when that person can’t defend themselves, I become very upset. People that do that are criminals. They’re the scum of society. They prey on the weak and defenseless for their own personal gain. These are the so-called “peaceful protesters” of Seattle. I agree with everyone’s right to protest, but the moment they try to assault someone, that’s when EVERYONE should have a problem with their actions. Why the media has continued to defend them, it just shows how biased and out of touch the media is and it irritates me.

After only a few days, the majority of my unit was sent home. Why? The Guard wanted to re-staff COVID-19 food banks, testing centers, and send the full-time soldiers back to their normal jobs… So, a large portion of our unit was pulled, and we were left with a little more than a dozen soldiers. The platoon was condensed, and other units were added to our ranks to fill in for those pulled from our platoon. We worked very well together and continued to push forward, making the best of the situation, as we were constantly tasked out by SPD.

Additional units began to arrive, due to Governor Jay Inslee activating the entire Washington National Guard (Army and Air Force). We soon realized that the majority of our “reinforcements” weren’t trained, were undisciplined, and were useless for the current mission in Seattle. Additionally, they were an embarrassment… Those units were quickly sent home by the Commanding General and we realized our platoon would be stuck in Seattle, battling Antifa, until the situation was resolved one way or another.

I asked my chain of command a few times about arming us, but it was relayed over and over that Governor Inslee wouldn’t allow the Guard to defend ourselves or take the fight to the enemy (Antifa). The Governor made us rely on SPD to “protect us.” That limited the scope of our response, limiting our role as “shields” and “bodies” on the line for SPD… As SPD Officers and Guardsman continued to get injured at East Precinct, it became increasingly frustrating… Arming the National Guard is a risk, and some Antifa members probably would have been shot, but the situation would have been resolved quickly with a VERY different outcome.

So, the same escalating confrontations with Antifa continued for almost two weeks… The “protesters” would assault SPD Officers and Guardsman and SPD would use LESS-LETHAL means to disperse the riot. The rioters then used politics to their advantage. They began petitioning the Mayor of Seattle, Jenny Durkan. Durkan, in all her wisdom, caved to all demands… the curfew was lifted, and she BANNED the use of CS gas, the ONE thing that quickly de-escalated the violent confrontations… SPD had no choice but to view CS gas as a last resort, to only be deployed by SWAT.

Fast forward to the day before the most HUMILIATING and DEMORALIZING thing Durkan could have done…

SPD must have had some really good intelligence, or they were anticipating Antifa’s response from Durkan’s concessions. They installed permanent metal barriers at the intersection of 11th St and Pine St. A second line of barriers was also in place in between us and the initial barriers at the intersection. Everything kicked off per usual, with the “protesters” trying to provoke us with their words, umbrellas, and signs. This time, though, we didn’t give them an audience. We all stayed inside the East Precinct, as they did their normal agitation methods at the first barrier.

Suddenly, we were told the “protesters” began jumping the first barrier, heading towards us. We rushed out to the road and staged roughly 1/3 of the way up the block from the intersection of 11th St and Pine St, creating a large safety buffer between us and the “protesters” who had jumped the fencing. They were warned to return over the barrier, which they didn’t. They then began disassembling the barrier. They were warned not to disassemble the barrier, but they continued. They then walked towards us. They were warned to stop, but they didn’t. They continued walking towards us. They were warned again, but they continued. They reached the second barrier.

We later found out they brought a plasma cutter (blow torch) to cut through the barriers… (not that they are the provocateurs, or are planning to escalate, right?!)

They began cutting barriers so they could be used as weapons against us. They were warned about cutting the barriers, but they continued. They then picked up the second barriers and began walking towards us. They were warned again not to move the barriers, but they continued. They then jumped the last barrier. They were warned again to turn back, but they continued towards us. As they continued to approach, they were continuously warned. HOW MANY WARNINGS DOES IT TAKE?!

It started to get dark… The portable lights were turned on. The “protesters” then produced foil covered signs and were trying to blind the Officers and Guardsman. They were warned again, but they continued. They then threw a glass bottle at a Guardsman, the glass bottle shattering on a riot shield. They were warned again, but they just booed at us. They continued to walk slowly towards the Officers until they were within 2-3 feet. They then started using their umbrella’s and other objects, putting them in the face of the Officers. They were warned again to not do that.

As expected, objects were then thrown at us. They amplified things, this time. Instead of throwing glass bottles containing urine and other bodily fluids, they began throwing glass bottles full of gasoline. They then lit and threw fireworks at us, trying to light us on fire.

FINALLY the SPD Administration gave the green light and LESS LETHAL forms of riot control were deployed. As objects were continued to be thrown at us, SWAT finally deployed CS gas. The “protesters” proceeded to start vandalizing everything in the area. They smashed business windows, burned U.S. flags, lit dumpsters and other items on fire, and threw things on fire at us. We pushed them back in all directions about half a block but for some reason, we stopped pushing them back. They then regrouped and continued to vandalize the area with spray paint, breaking windows, and lighting things on fire. Around that time, the Guard was pulled back and we left East Precinct.

I returned the very next day at East Precinct, ready to continue the daily fight with these anarchists and communists. When I arrived, they were boarding up East Precinct. City employees were removing all the barriers and taking everything they could out of the precinct. We were ordered to about-face and leave. We went to a different precinct where it was announced that Durkan had decided to abandon East Precinct and to give it to the “protesters.” As we watched, Antifa took over the East Precinct and they erected walls at the adjacent intersections with the barricades we had used. They armed themselves, proceeded to vandalize the East Precinct with spray paint, and they declared Capitol Hill a Cop-Free, Autonomous Zone (CHAZ). It was hard enough for me to watch, but I saw Officers that were assigned to the East Precinct for decades, shield their faces, and walk out of the room in tears. The Capitol Hill area of the City of Seattle, to include East Precinct, was surrendered by its elected officials to the terrorists…

I spent the next couple days stewing in Seattle… just waiting for any elected official to grow some balls and tell us to move back in… to take over the ground they surrendered… but it never happened. We were then told the Guard was losing its support from SPD. CHAZ was the new norm of Seattle. The terrorists won and it was time to go home. We expressed our frustration among ourselves, lowered our heads, sympathized for the SPD Officers, packed our rucksacks, and went home angry. (source)

You may be completely on your own.

As you can see, you can’t depend on anyone to come and save you when unrest shows up in your neighborhood. The people who were there, willing, and able to defend Seattle were forced to stand down. You have to expect to be completely on your own. Learn more about how to stay safe during civil unrest scenarios here.

Can you imagine how the members of the National Guard and the police must have felt, facing this mob scene without the support of the state and local officials?

Of course, there are two sides to every story and it’s important to see both. Here’s an on-the-ground video of the CHAZ area. You do not have to be logged in to watch it.

One has to question how an elected governor could be so poor a leader as to let blocks of the largest city in his state be taken over by rioters. It honestly seems to be somewhat beyond “poor leadership.” What we’re wondering is whether Governor Inslee is truly this spineless, whether it’s a deliberate attempt to undermine law and order, or if he’s just another “useless idiot” progressing an agenda.

  1. Real Protestors should be protesting The Scummy USA.INC. Government Is the Problem! Scummy Government are Liars On Steroids. I am an Anti-War Veteran.

  2. This was all set up. The Democrats had it all in place long before. George Zorro’s and his money helped immensely. This never was about Mr. Floyd. It is about taking over a NATION of FREE people and turning them into poverty stricken worms. It was has been about control all along. Ain’t no water in Hell!
    Floyd was just an excuse to get the fire rolling.

    1. Yes it is a set up. Classic communist “pressure from above, pressure from below”. The Democrats are playing the role of the early Nazi party while Antifa are the Brown Shirt street thugs. The Democrats who run these cities are purposely letting chaos reign so that the weary public will accept the hope of peace and order if we just give in to all leftist demands. We probably will give in and eventually we’ll regret it, too late.

  3. 3 questions Daisy – What is the name of the author of this article – the supposed “eyewitness”? Who or what group “quickly identified” the protestors described in this article “as Antifa”? Also, as to the protests in Seattle, I’d sure like to know how many members of the Proud Boys and/or the Boogaloo movement were there in the crowd escalating the violence to further their own agendas?

    1. You can click the first link in the article and go to his Facebook post.

      As to the other questions, I wasn’t there and cannot answer those.

    2. Comic relief eh? Get some new material, this is no longer funny – in fact, we only laughed the first time to spare your feelings. No more.

  4. I empathize with the young NCO that wrote the above. I am a retired soldier. I saw Vietnam through Dessert Storm and 15 “bumps in the road” (ala Henry Kissinger) in between fighting Other Peoples’ Wars (opw). What I have seen emphasizes Khrushchev’s early 60’s speech at the UN. Also, remember that our founding fathers worried about the “enemy from within” more than the one from the outside.

    I am proud to call such a group of well trained, dedicated men and women, as this young NCO relates about, to be my brother/sisters in arms protecting that which we have taken an oath to do.

  5. The governor is following orders from the Democratic Party. They are trying to provoke a response from president Trump in order to create an incident to claim orange man bad.

    All they are doing is waking more people up as to how little the Democratic Party thinks about their own people and how far they will go to regain power in order for the full disclosure of all of their crimes to be brought to light.

    The cities with the most violent protests are all democratically run and have been from 30-89 years. Some, like NY told their police to stand down.

    We are going to continue to have event/distraction one after another between now and the elections. Between the events and their complicit MSM (Note that all of the MSM’s are Democratic owned & are also following their orders from above) they are hoping to distract and keep the public from being informed about the information that will be forth coming from the senate hearings.

    This is also why judge Sullivan is stalling/dragging out general Flynn’s trial as long as possible (he was given his marching orders). As soon as Flynn is cleared the gag order that he is under is lifted. He knows all of the skeletons in Obama’s and his administration’s closet.

    This is also why all of the Democratic states lock down orders are the slowest to lift. Now that the protests are dying down the MSM is trying to push a 2nd wave of Wuhan virus to force us back inside to force vote by maiL. It’s the only way they can cheat votes.

    Everyone keep your heads know that you are not alone and that we are the majority. The democrats, MSM know this and that is why they are pushing all of the devisive messages to make us feel as if we are separate and alone.

    Division is designed to keep you powerless.

    Unity is humanity.
    Trust yourself.

    1. Maybe that’s why, from this a.m.’s headlines the Mongols and Hell’s Angels have now gotten over their “divisions” and in solidarity, are going to Seattle to put an end to CHAZ division. What a great Article. Thank all military, cops, ……well thank you to All Of You who are truly American by Heart and putting forth the sacrifice for nation and God.

  6. I’ve been visiting with my men who returned from DC. They’ve not been through this before.
    They all to a man have stated “It’s like we weren’t even in America then way they acted”. They are struggling with the depression of seeing fellow Americans act they way they did.
    They all believe in protest but they have all stated that wasn’t what happened.
    So how does this relate to you in preparedness?
    Well understand the amount of “joiners” that will throw in with the numbers they believe will win without any regard to their way of life when they come into your neighborhood, farm or highway your driving on.
    Understand that reason, logic and discussion will go out the window and you will not be able to connect, legitimize or reason because of their emotions and true desires of destruction and theft.
    Doesn’t leave a lot options does it?
    In SHTF the answer is easy but that answer when it’s only partial disruption like today will get you thrown in jail. I think if a law needs changing that’s one we need to start with.

    1. Sad that some of us are stuck in urban areas or apartments and can’t produce our own or afford to get out.

  7. Look, it is painfully obvious that this is a communist uprising, using a variety of lies and cover stories as excuses. It operates the same as all the Soros backed “color revolutions” in other countries. It was even code named the “Purple Revolution” early on, but most people don’t know that.
    We all know who is in on it, and it is time to take them down. This is not a time to be playing games with communist revolutionaries.

    1. Except for one thing. These donkeys aren’t communist. The thick …. are social in the same way Marie Antoinette was poor. Both play(ed) at poverty as if it was a game, yet look what happened to Marie. The revolution isn’t going to come from those in Seattle, It’s going to come from those they are pretending to be and it’s going to be against these larpers. They’ve signed their death warrents for being the fakes they are. They ain’t communist, socialist or even fascist. They’re F****d. Darwin eat your heart out.

  8. I read a wide variety of forums, and post in many of them. I also engage in conversation with a lot of people in real life; or rather, they talk to me. I dunno..must be something written on my forehead that tells people, “Hey, talk to THIS guy!”

    Anyway, I am hearing a HUGE amount of backlash and resentment from folks of all sorts against the rioters, the looters, the anarchists, communists, plain old lunatics, etc etc. Here’s some of the lines that stand out in my memory:

    “We can’t go inside this [local] restaurant, but these assholes can burn it down?

    “Our governor/mayor/city council won’t let us go to church, but they’ll allow demonstrators to shut down the highway!”

    “They let those assholes take over six city blocks, but they blocked us from having a barbecue on Memorial Day!

    “Governor So and So has banned guns x,y and z, but has let the rioters attack the cops!”

    “We live in a state that doesn’t have stand your ground, but now we can’t call the cops for a property crime, even if it means some assholes are setting our house or car on fire!”

    AND, most ominously:

    “They wanna defund the cops? Fine! Then, when these POS show up here, we can shoot, shovel then shut the hell up”

    Maybe this is just people venting, maybe they’re serious… I honestly don’t know. What I DO know is that if there was ever a nationwide defunding of police, there is a brick ton of folks, many with military training, who are more than ready to, as one fellow put it “bring the trash back to the dump.”

    So maybe, just maybe, the self righteous half-assed “revolutionaries” out there might want to reconsider their extreme stance on law enforcement. Before we enter into an era of true stupidity in this country

    Just sayin’

  9. Daisy WHERE is the Link to the Guardsman’s Page?

    The Link that said Social Media Post and is Crossed out DOES NOT WORK. IT GOES TO AN EMPTY PAGE.

    Thanks for keeping us Informed..

    And for all the Tips..

    Great Job..

    DC

    1. Let me check – it’s possible he was made to take down the post. It was very widely shared. I’ll get back to you quickly.

      1. It’s gone, all right. I’m not sure if the author took it down or if Facebook censored his account. I took some screenshots of it at the time (a lesson I learned when I see something controversial because it often gets memory-holed.)

  10. The President CANNOT send in/use the U.S. Military to stop the riots. It’s against the law. BUT he can federalize the National Guard and send them in to restore order. If these fine young men and women are given the job with orders to defend themselves, I bet the riots would end very soon. I live in North Carolina and even though there don’t seem to be any riots ( we have our Bibles and guns) there is talk about impeaching Gov Cooper for his violations of the laws. He’s already cost this state millions of dollars. I weep for the citizens caught behind the lines. Will the Washington state governor and Seattle mayor be held responsible for the rapes, murders and arson? I hope so. Will the council women who unlocked everything be held responsible for domestic terrorism? I hope so.

    1. Lin, history can be very instructive. I just watched the History channel’s “Grant”. Seattle could be taken back the way Grant took Vicksburg. Shut off the supply lines, no food no water and no communication. Patience and determination would break their will.

      However in reality I don’t think the MSM and the American people could bare the reality of putting down an insurrection, well not yet.

      1. There is no need for Orders to cut supply lines. Truckers will be unwilling to drive to such places. The shattered businesses will not return, nor their taxes. Nobody will open new businesses. Within a week, the first people will leave the city, and hordes will follow. Most of those will be good people. But many will not and other areas will be wary of welcoming them.
        Most of the criminals are from out of state or out of that area. THEIR neighborhoods will be safe–for now. But within a few years, the monsters will see the consequences of their actions on those they were pretending to help. Some will “grow up.”

        I want to know who is funding this. I see George Soros mentioned a lot–but mere suspicion, no actual evidence whatever. Definitely, there is Big Money involved.

    2. The people of Seattle have voted these politicians into office. So all other appointed offices come with those politicians. Feel sorry, no.

      We get what we deserve.

      I blame every branch of government.

      I blame each party.
      Democrats are traitors
      Republicans are spinless.

      Re-elect no of them.

      Throw them all out.

  11. You in the Nat’l Guard should never have gone there or anywhere they don’t let you take your loaded weapons.
    It’s your fault for going. Next time, stand down & don’t go.
    I sure the hell, wouldn’t have gone.
    One time, my husband who worked for the FCC at the time, was told to go to Colorado/Mexico border? What? He wasn’t trained for any kind of warfare. He was office.
    I said, what? Did they give you a firearm. Did they train you with a firearm? He said, no. I said you are not going.
    It’s not your job.

    Later, they tried to do it to him again, ordering him to Florida to bust pirate radio stations. I repeated the same questions. Again, he said, no. Again, I said you are not going. It’s not your job.

    Understand? It’s not your job to go and risk being killed without your standard weapons!!!! Learn from that.

    The United States National Guard must supply you with weapons to protect yourself and each other, or don’t go. They cannot put you in physical danger without protection. How dare they! Stand down. You put yourself and your men in repeated danger. Shame on you. Don’t let that happen again.

    1. Well said Bart. Had similar thoughts.

      What was the purpose of sending in the National Guard if they had their hands tied and couldn’t do their job or physically protect themselves or the protestors? Why weren’t the violent destructive invaders/protestors arrested?

      Who ultimately benefits by watching lawlessness occur in our major states and cities? Could it be a socialist, communist governor, mayor, police department, democrat party, foreign enemy because it surely was not the state of Washington, its citizens or business owners of Seattle.

      I am really trying hard to figure out why elected officers of the State Washington are not arrested immediately by its own citizens, for violating their oath of office and state laws.

  12. Understand that the Worldwide Global Communist Revolution has Begun. People in London, Paris & Berlin have Zero – Nothing to do with Police in America. All Rioters, Looters & Violent Agitators MUST BE SHOT & KILLED if necessary. Unfortunately in America we have a party called Democrats that are essentially Communists, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, MSN + All the Network “News”(Propaganda) & on the “Other” side we have Republicans who range from Socialist to Fascist with Precious Few Actually representing Freedom, Capitalism & Religious Worship & Don’t Forget the Corporations Giving Millions to B)LACK L)IARS M)AIM, B)LACK L)IARS M)URDER, B)URNING L)OOTING M)AYHEM so this is a Corporate Supported Worldwide Global Communist Revolution. Trump has been Attacked by Former Generals which is Not Allowed in a Constitutional Republic & Esper Disarming The National Guard & Current Generals “Regretting” being Seen in Public with their Commander In Chief. Trump is NO LONGER IN CHARGE – The Military has Executed a Coup & Trump is now a Puppet. Did you see his Appearance at West Point – couldn’t lift his glass of water & had trouble Walking Down Stairs – Has He Been Poisoned? The Global Economy is Going Down By Design & these steps are All about Consolidating Power & Neutralizing America. Prep, Pray & Be Ready to battle Demons of ALL TYPES. Cheers!

  13. Couple of things,
    Masks by most but no social distancing. Hmmm
    Masks serve no real purpose for preserving ones health in any case. Its become more of a symbol at this point.
    Why so many out just walking around? Does no one have a job or other responsibilities?
    Why have the people allowed the governor to destroy their means of income and shut down their city?
    Thats the real reason for the table of free food in the ladies video at the end of Daisys post.

    There is a bigger agenda at work here than any of those sheeple are aware of. They are basically pawns (and disposable) to the ruling class running the show.

    There is NOTHING peaceful about looting, property destruction and assault. This is NOT what MLK was talking about and he was black!
    There is no constitutional right to do the above acts! We are all just human beings no matter the color of skin. Bout time we all stop focusing on the smaller issues and search out the big picture.

    I find the post by the Nat Guard guy interesting. Agent provocateurs seem to be involved in large numbers. Someone (Soros?) has paid them to start trouble and incite violence. These sort only care about the profit and absolutely nothing about the cause! This is what the majority need to wake up to. Racism is being used as a means to an end.

    We are all pawns in a far bigger game. Until that is acknowledged nothing will change. The politicians no longer work for the people who elect them. The people fear the government and that is tyranny plain and simple. The founders of this country warned the citizenry many times of this. Their are no friends of the people in the District of Criminals. None. To many entitlements have made slaves of many to a corrupt system. It has all become about riches and power rather than freedom. Sacrificing freedom for safety from some invisible enemy that may or may not even exist has cost much of our freedoms.

    Selco has many wisdoms from his life. It would be wise to heed and not be taken unaware.

  14. I have read most of what you experienced .I commend you and yours . I could not do it .
    I have two sons in the army . One is ( 160th Delta ) 6 years and not a picture of him in uniform . He has been to Afghan. Enough to get a strip . In that unit that is something , but I have seen the affect of combat on him . The anger that surfaces in some situations and it’s crazy to watch his face turn into stone . The look in his eye is scary.
    The people that were in your face have no idea what is behind those eyes and what could happen it is not a game . . if you or anyone of you did not keep it together. Thank you for your service and disiplen. Stay safe .

  15. ANTIFA/BLM are US government proxies, like a domestic or western version of ISIS. Used to terrorize and destabilize.

  16. Grandpa Soros has already kicked in 100 million towards this “movement” to collapse and reset America, and the world… It’s no accident this went global…

  17. This is not the entire picture. This article implies the police/guard were harmlessly sitting there, being attacked by “Antifa” They were not. I saw aggression from the police at shocking levels. Short of the first couple days of the protests (which were largely inhabited by people wanting to cause trouble.) And don’t get me wrong, protestors reacting in less than proactive ways is understandable when you consider the degree of oppression and the buildup of frustration and anger… and yet, those with legitimate anger were not the ones setting stuff on fire and raiding target. After the initial burst the protests continued. The problem was the police were instigating. They set barriers where they had no right to. They were violating the protesters rights to free speech and to assemble. And guess what, when the police FINALLY got out of the way, what happened? Did they torch the abandoned police station? No. Was there looting and violence? No. The police left, and finally there was sincere, peaceful protest. My hubby and a couple of our kids visited CHAZ yesterday, and it was amazing. It was like a utopia, with loving, giving, kind people. There were inspiring speeches, free snacks, first aid and even a mental health tent where you could go if feelings came up and you needed to process. As a white person I was welcomed, valued, and even allowed to give an impromptu speech. I don’t think the average non-POC has ANY idea what the average POC deals with on a daily basis. This is a healing process and it’s beautiful. I do fear for them when inevitably our idiot president or whoever cause harm to this peaceful inhabitation, but hearts and minds are being challenged and changed here, and that is SO VERY important. I will not be replying further to comments, because I know I’m going to get bashed, and I’m not willing to deal with racist BS today.

    1. Every comment disagreeing isn’t “racist”. That is part of the issue. The meaning of the word isn’t whatever or whenever anyone disagrees with me from another color. That does not make them a racist or make them racist. It simply means they have opposing views.

      1. @Matt in OK,
        Yes, you are correct when you say,
        “That is part of the issue.”
        Even prior to George Floyd’s murder, there was a growing trend that if you do not agree with me 100%, then you are a (insert the exact opposite of a position someone holds).
        Could be anything. Dont agree with me on X, Y and Z then you are a homophobe/xenophobe/racist/etc.

        I was exchanging emails with a good friend, and I mentioned about how this has the feel of Mao’s Culture Revolution. (ironically, about a week later, China’s party media outlet Global Times, said something to the same effect)
        Will we see that IF you do not take a knee in solidarity, will you be branded a racist, and beaten by the mob?

    2. Utopia? Tell that to the business owners and their employees who have been burned out.

      There are also reliable reports that white “protesters” are being shaken down for money by the black ones.

      And, FYI as of last night, there were several shootings with at least one dead in your precious free zone.

      Utopia my ass.

  18. Floyd was a thug with a huge criminal record. This is a Communist revolution and will develop quickly. Zombies can not be reasoned, and these people are ZOMBIES. Only one solution to a Zombie Revolution, either become the Hunted or the Hunter.

  19. IN ORDER TO BY PASS THE US CONSTITUTION,the NATIONAL GUARD WAS CALLED THE MITILIA,but it was a lie,they were straight out military(FORBIDDEN)..NO STANDING ARMIES ALLOWED only citizen militas,ITS easy to see who’s on who’s side in the story,the national guard is with the enemy of the people,THE VERY ONES they are supposed to protect,THEY ALL LIED TO GOD when they took their OATH TO HIM,they were NEVER on the peoples side or the US CONSTITUTION..hey military traitors,your new home is only haft full..HELL….

  20. Great article.
    The question is: What do we learn from this?

    I would say first off, that we can not expect our government to defend us. This will vary Area by Area , State by State, even Nation by Nation. But at some point it may be what happens in your local area.

    What I have gleaned from other articles, is that these individuals (to date), do not seem interested in engaging citizens that are armed. I think that since citizens do not have rules of engagement to obey, they can not predict the outcome of those clashes.
    Plus I believe the Goal is the National and International destruction of our society as we know it.

    So if you want to protect your community, you need to be armed and part of an organized group in order to stop the destruction locally.
    Secondly, I think we can safely predict that this is run by outside forces seeking to destroy the US. But not just the US alone, but all of society. Which is very troubling.

    I doubt that they will stop short of this goal, though their tactics might change.
    I further suspect they will continue even when SHTF, regardless of whether they directly cause it or something else does.
    So I think we should all plan on dealing with these indoctrinated individuals, infiltrators and their groups, come SHTF.

    I would add one thing to this: Do NOT fall into the trap of thinking that this is or will only be, a Racial issue or a purely Political one.
    So do not limit your distrust to any one group, be they Liberal, Conservative, Antifa, BLM, White Supremacist, Communist, Anarchist or whatever. It is much, much bigger than that.
    The fact that it is happening in Europe also, is a testimony to that fact.

    Come SHTF, expect these individuals to still be active, working to overthrow whatever is left of your Nation’s culture and heritage in order to replace it with something else.
    What exactly that is, I do not know, nor do I think they really do either. They are just Pawns, used to destroy civilization, those who will, on a large scale basis, attempt to reassemble the pieces, are probable the ones who are behind all of this.

  21. Inslee is a communist piss poor excuse for a Governor! And what is expected to happen when the police and guard have no balls in the game?? Totally emasculated!! I just can’t even imagine having police and guard that has no fire power! And look at the rioters…they took full advantage and got away with it. It’s so sad! America is down the drain. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I thank God you were not injured or killed!

  22. The sad thing about this story is this young man was probably sold a bill of goods by a recruiter and/or needed extra money for college or just to survive. When you take the Leviathan’s money, you do the Leviathan’s bidding, whatever that may be. I served during the Viet Nam War and then, after a break in service, was an active Army Reservist for 8 years. When I finally left, I was contacted afterwards and asked if I would be willing to go back in for Billary’s Wag the Dog in Bosnia. I told TPTB I would not serve under that draft-dodging, degenerate POTUS.
    The only thing I would tell any young person nowadays is to choose whom you will serve. We are in the initial phases of CW II. Any soldier or cop will have to decide whether they will honor their Constitutional Oath or bow to their paymasters. And as far as this comedy in Seattle is concerned, ignore it. That is what the current POTUS is doing. He has NO CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY to intervene unless: 1) Federal Law is being violated. 2) Commissar Jay Inslee asks for his help. I would hope Mr. Trump is sitting back with a cold one watching the syphilitic thinking Marxists who run Seattle and the Evergreen State run around in tight little circles, emitting high-pitched squeaking noises. The Donald is giving them enough rope to hang themselves. Keep prepping and enjoy the show!

  23. Hi Daisy, Enjoyed reading your post. However as a veteran myself, I understood clearly, the position you had found yourself in. You stated your not politicly inclined and have little time for politics. But the sad reality is, eventually you will need to involve yourself, whether you like it or not. Allow me to relate an event to you, which happened to me, shortly after I volunteered my services to my countries military services. After rookie and Corps training, I was relegated to an infantry battalion which had just returned from active service and was in need to rebuilding to full strength before again being sent out. I was assigned to A company, 3 platoon as a rifleman. We began training and build up immediatetly, though we had no C.O. at this stage. Eventually the C.O. turned up and called us on parade to introduce himself to us and give us a speech. The first two thirds of his speech was simply waffle and had no meaningful content at all, then he began to tell us what HIS objectives were when we arrived in the war zone. He clearly told us all, and I quote, “I volunteered for this position from 30 applicants, Iintend to get decorations to pin on this chest, (points to his chest with his fist) and I don’t care how many of you lots’ lives it’s gonna take, but I’m coming home decorated”. Not a whisper from the ranks, dead silence. We were dismissed and marched back to our barracks. We discussed his comments amongst ourselves, and I discovered many of my fellows were not in the least impressed with their new leader. I thought about his comments long and hard. I had volunteered my life for the next 6 years to the military, and had at the same time, surrendered any say for myself, but something stuck in my craw about the cavalier attitude this guy took to our lives.
    Finally I decided I had not volunteered my life so this guy could get medals pinned on his chest, so I approached my Platoon Sargent and availed him of my concerns and my desire to leave the Company ASAP. According to regulations in the military, there is a laid down procedure we must comply with, a step by step procedure, going from the Platoon Sargent to the Platoon Commander, then to the Company second in Command and finally if he considers it worthy, to the commander. I did that, step by step and was ultimately dismissed from being even heard by my C.O. So I had done the required thing according to laid down Regs and come up against a blank wall. There’s no further provision to be heard. So what does one do ???? I broke military protocol and marched down to Admin Company who had advertised positions vacant. I requested to be heard by the C.O. of Admin Company, he agreed to hear me, despite being totally outside protocol. I explained my situation to him clearly, I had no intention of throwing away my life for self serving S.O.B. to pin medals on his chest. My life was worth more than that. He agreed. He also told me one of the vacant positions was mine, and now to go back to my Company and inform them. Before I even got back, I was accosted by my Warrant Officer and marched straight up to the C.O. who was that red in the face, I thought he was going to explode any moment. Apparently the C.O. of Admin Company had rung him up and explained to him my views and motives, which did not go down well at all. He raged and blustered all he could, but there was nothing he could do. Eventually he told he to get the hell out and remove my gear, he didn’t want me anywhere near his Company again. That suited me just fine. I joined Admin Company and was ultimately designated to accompany Delta Company throughout their tour. However no longer as a rifleman, as such I was with Company Headquarters. The point of all this, is that despite having no desire to be involved in politics, at some time in your life, you most definately will be called upon to make political decisions to ensure the outcome of situations serve YOU the best, before anything else.
    Have a good day.

  24. Douglas Valentine wrote in CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME that the same tactics the CIA/Wall Street had used in foreign nations to instigate a coup to dominate their nation was being seen in the US. The revolt set up a puppet government to exploit the indigous people.

    Now we see the NWO aggression in Seattle.

  25. I was going to reply, but after the first few comments I don’t care to after seeing all of the ANTI-AMERICAN CRAP!!! You people are DISGUSTING and you can talk amongst yourselves as I will NOT be reading your replies.
    If you DO NOT LIKE LIVING IN AMERICA then go the hell away to another country that shares your drivel !!!!!!
    MOST OF US DON’T SHARE YOUR VIEWS –
    And I care the least for the fires and pillage you have left behind.

  26. I think there are more options that could explain CHAZ, but they all fall under the category “political games above the paygrade of common folk”.

    Actually, I didn’t need an eyewitness account to know that CHAZ was allowed to happen. You just need to know something about the capabilities of the American police and army, to realize there is simply no way that rioters/protesters could get hold of an area unless they were allowed to.

    And the fact that common folk are on their own, and collateral damage to any games played by the elites, national and international, should be no news to anyone.

  27. This is an incredibly important article. After reading, I asked hubby if he had heard anything about the riots and scuffles before the precinct was sacrificed to the rioters. He said he hadn’t. I remember hearing a line or two about it, but not much. We both pay a lot of attention to news. People need to know this. I would sure like it if there were a way to make these articles more printable. I’ve done my best to print it, it’s readable, but could be lots better. Thanks for this, And thanks to the author for taking the time to relate the details. People need to know.

  28. God Bless you soldiers for what you had to endure. It was all so very wrong, and so very political. There are real patriots out there who see what is going on, and when it come to a head we will have your back.

  29. “The people who were there, willing, and able to defend Seattle were forced to stand down.”

    gonna have to ignore that and stand and fight at some point. sooner is better.

  30. Daisy, someone is calling this article a complete fake. There are two inconsistency’s:
    1. this someone say’s there is no way this man would have lived so far away from Seattle and
    2. There is no way an NG would have used the word: zero dark thirty.
    IS this a credible article? If not, I owe someone an apology for spreading fear through a non credible article.
    Please check this out and get back to me asap.
    Thank you.

    1. It is my belief that this is accurate. And lots of people say zero dark thirty – that doesn’t rule anything out. I say it for super-early in the morning. Other military friends of mine read it and also believe it to be accurate.

      I don’t know the guy personally but I have no reason to disbelieve his story.

    2. Actually, during the “draw-down” years ago many units were deactivated, thus necessitating people travelling long distances to join other units further away. This happened to our unit in the late 90’s. It was deactivated and people with time left in their “hitch” had to go to units in another state or further up north in the state. Along with this they eliminated the per diem payments; previously, if you had to travel over 50 miles to another unit, you got paid for travel, but after the draw-down, those payments were eliminated.

  31. Who actually wrote the story about the national guardsman experience in Seattle? Toby or Daisy. It couldn’t have been Daisy yet she authored the article?

    1. It shows up as me authoring it and I wrote the intro and conclusion, but the entire italicized part is taken from a link on Facebook. The post has since been removed (censored?) on Facebook.

  32. Once dress codes were dropped in public schools and it was difficult to identify teachers from students, no longer were there authority figures to look up to and respect. Now throw away the military draft system and many young people have no Country to understand, respect or protect. Authority figures, whether it be parents, teachers or law enforcement have been continually berated and are considered “not necessary” in society. The activities of the past couple of weeks are no longer paying tribute and respect to fallen citizen George Floyd. Seattle is the perfect example of society at its lowest. The protesters turned rioters do not wish to stop their campaign of domestic terror. Far from it. They are being funded by dark forces with an evil agenda and the idiot politicians running Seattle are aiding and abetting crime on an unbelievable level by supporting these looters, thieves and thugs. I agree with the author, whom ever he or she is, in regards to race. Talking in a negative fashion about it only stirs the proverbial pot and does nothing to advance equality. We need Dr. King more then ever today. Follow his example of peaceful protest. So far many I have seen are nothing but petty opportunists only out to illegally enhance their own bottom line.

  33. Interesting article. As background, I am not a strong supporter of any government, largely because governments are force and violence ridden human control mechanisms. Having said that, I am likewise not a supporter of lies and deceptions by anyone, especially if the liars and frauds control the government force and violence.

    I liked this article and would like to upload a copy to my own website. Why? The NCO is acting more like the local organized militia than like an organized enforcer of Government’s rules and regulations. Unless he is lying, he’s obviously one of the good guys. More power to him. His attitude is great.

    I always prefer local controls to be held legally above statewide or national controls. But, that now gets us to the meat of the conflict. Who destroys their own neighborhood? If what the author describes is accurate, then the alleged local protestors WERE infiltrated by violent outsiders. That outside influence smacks of George Soros and his efforts to destroy the USA. The Soros tribe call themselves ‘the great destroyers’ and for good reason – they cannot survive in peace time because they live off other’s efforts, so lies, deception, and violence are their weapons of choice. Yes, that would make them parasites according to some definitions (including mine). And yes, they use the format described in the Kalergi Plan as a simple means of keeping people angry, divided, and at each other’s throats. It is a stupid plan that unfortunately seems to work more often than not.

    Unfortunately, the rich and powerful who control most state and federal government agencies, are largely sociopaths and only want to keep and increase their own selfish controls over others. Screw the idea of the individual. Screw the idea of freedom and self sufficiency – communism (a talmudic construct) for every slave. Isn’t that sad – while the mature adults in the world are usually givers, the sycophants of the rich and powerful are invariably the takers and the destroyers.

  34. This guy doesn’t live in Seattle. He has no fucking business policing it.

    This guy called citizens of the united states ENEMIES OF THE MILITARY. They were deployed to wage war on citizens.

    social injustice spurring destruction of corporate property isn’t new. Remember the tea party? ffs.

    maybe this jackass hasn’t killed anyone personally but he’s part of an organization that keeps doing it.

    NO LETHAL FORCE WAS USED? CS GAS CAN KILL PEOPLE. RUBBER BULLETS AND SPONGE ROUNDS CAN KILL PEOPLE. THEY HAVE KILLED PROTESTORS THIS WAY. A JEWISH GIRL WAS MACED TO DEATH BY A COP. LESS LETHAL DOESN’T MEAN NOT LETHAL.

    oh noooo someone is blowing the CS gas back at you because you fucking violated the geneva convention and threw it at them. and yeah they WERE expecting tear gas because the fucking cops have used it at every turn.

    “if I was armed, I would have shot him…” yeah this is exactly the problem. Fuck this guy.

    “I don’t like politics so i’m not going to talk about them” fuck you being a cop is political.
