Seattle Police and FBI Clear Out Domestic Terrorist Camp Known as CHOP…

Citing two deaths and fourteen shooting incidents, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best gives a briefing after police and FBI cleared the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone (CHOP). According to Ms. Best the police are preparing to move back into the East Precinct within Seattle’s Capitol Hill area.  *UPDATE* Statement by AG Bill Barr added.

SEATTLE -Officers arrested at least 31 people by 9:25 a.m. for failure to disperse, obstruction, resisting arrest, and assault. SPD tweeted that officers made an additional arrest around 10:50 a.m. at Broadway and E. Pine St.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan issued a 48-hour executive order for protesters to vacate the area due to the ongoing violence and public safety issues in the area of the East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park. Mayor Durkan’s order declared the gathering as an “unlawful assembly” that required immediate action.

Police moved into the CHOP just before 5 a.m. and issued a dispersal order to any protesters in the area. “Anyone who remains in the area, or returns to the area, is subject to arrest,” SPD tweeted. (read more)

Statement by U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr:

“I commend Police Chief Carmen Best for her courage and leadership in restoring the rule of law in Seattle. For the past several weeks, the Capitol Hill area of Seattle was occupied by protesters who denied access to police and other law enforcement personnel. Unsurprisingly, the area became a haven for violent crime, including shootings that claimed the lives of two young people, assaults, and robberies.

As Chief Best made clear throughout the process, there is a fundamental distinction between discussion of substantive issues — including addressing distrust of law enforcement by many in the African-American community — and violent defiance of the law. Chief Best has rightly committed to continue the substantive discussion while ending the violence, which threatens innocent people and undermines the very rule-of-law principles that the protesters profess to defend.

Thanks to the Seattle Police Department, Capitol Hill parks, streets, and businesses are again accessible to the people of Seattle, who may travel throughout their city without fear of violence. The people of Seattle should be grateful to Chief Best and her Department for their professional and steadfast defense of the rule of law.

The message of today’s action is simple but significant: the Constitution protects the right to speak and assemble freely, but it provides no right to commit violence or defy the law, and such conduct has no place in a free society governed by law.” (link)

      What a pathetic PC response by Barr. Don’t hold your breath waiting on him to enforce any laws on domestic terrorists or seditious coup plotters.

      We should designate the uniparty a terrorist organization, arrest them and send to Gitmo.

        I respectfully disagree. His message wasn’t as harsh and condemnatory as it could have been but it made his position clear and if everyone followed it, this madness would end. He is the nation’s A/G, not just the Red states.

It is all one needs to understand what is happening and what the next moves will be, This is really scary. This is the deep state in action.

          Seneca the Eder, The Rockefeller article from 2010 is ONLY talking about a POSSIBLE future event. The point is that they are telling the exact same story that the media has been reporting about the virus. This proves to me at least that the virus attack was pre planned. Re-read the article and see where they plan to extend the lockdown, where governments crack down and where people give up their rights in order to be safe.

          Seneca the Elder, The pandemic is fictional. The article was about possible future events. The way the events and what happens next is portrayed convinces us that an intentional virus release was what they had planned back some ten years ago. Again, the article was allegedly about possible future events.

          It looks as though they finally hatched their plan. Look for extended forced lock downs and mask wearing well into the future. Look for mandatory vaccinations that will contain additives to kill off old people in a few months and sterilize women to control the population. These communist bas@rds know no bounds. All the best from the Bat.

        In the 7 years 2012-2017 the average deaths from influenza were 35,000 a year. In the 2017 to 20-19 season, it was 60,000 and in 2018-2019 it was 80,000. I propose these last two numbers are inaccurate but were due to the left’s infiltration and altering coverage payments. They were testing, analyzing, and testing their envelopes. This year hospitals are paid more it ChiCom-19 is reported as the cause. This makes an opportunity for the administrators to justify their huge salaries to put irresistible pressure on the doctors to toe the profit line in their diagnosis.
        Just how many people have died this year to non-ChiCom-19 influenza and colds? ZERO per the stats. This is all a scam.

      dcnnc – A lot of the spikes in SoCal are the result of border crossers from Mexico. I gotta believe it has an impact on other border states as well.. The US-Mex border has remained open during the pandemic. Baja is behind us on the curve & has been getting hit hard from the virus. Thousands of people that reside in Mexico cross the US borders daily for work, both US & Mexican nationals. They also utilize US health care which is a likely reason we’re seeing an uptick in hospitalizations. Legal, illegal, hospitals aren’t allowed to ask. I’ve heard nothing about this fact. I’m just sayin, I’d appreciate just a little honesty when our overlords tell us how bad we are and spew their directives at us.

      Ultimately, it is the executive (mayor) who makes the decisions, not the executor (police chief). The executor carries out the executive”s orders.

      In this case, this is all on the mayor. She ignored the advice of probably everyone except the crazy city council who said let them come in, especially the one who opened the door to city hall for the rioters.

      The mayor & the city council should be fired & personally responsible for damages suffered by residents & business owners.

      If you”really going to take qualified immunity for the police away, you need to do likewise w/ mayors & city councils who are giving the police their orders.

      Reminds me of the at extremely violent and prolonged family brawl at Disneyland last year that was on video; it’s the culture. I cannot imagine any of my friends or people I grew up with behaving in such primitive and out of control way especially in Disneyland with all those little kids and families around. Of course, that self-destructive culture basically metastasized during the early 1980s and was glorified by Hollywood and the media and any attempt to critique it as a huge detriment to our society was criticized as “racism” (similar to why liberal Labour town councilors did not speak up during the 20 years of Pakistani rape gangs in the Midlands of UK (Rotherham, Rochdale, Telford, Oxfordshire…).

      Imagine society today if we did take a strong stand and not 3 generations of vulnerable working class kids watch their lives destroyed by the pied pipers, who, like Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, are glorified by trendy-fetishizing liberal whites in pseudo-intellectual documentaries who live FAR AWAY from the neighborhoods blighted by gangs and broken homes. Imagine if the street gangs were treated as terror organizations instead. We would have narrowed the achievement and employment gaps and cut down on fatherless families…… basically the point of the Civil Rights movements in the 50s.

    There’s a good learning experience there for everyone. Democrat mayors and governors are learning that President Trump isn’t going to bail them out when they allow herds of anti-social misfits to run amok in their cities.

    Some Democrat voters are getting first hand experience of virtue signaling mob rule and what is in store without law & order and a police force. Some of the minority urban areas are getting to compare the improvement of their lives, jobs, more financial stability, etc…under President Trump pre CCP virus & riots; as opposed to the BLM anti-law & order fustercluck they have now.
