Bernie Sanders Supporting PDX Stabber’s Bail … Same As Strickland’s

On May 26th Jeremy Christian is alleged to have begun berating two Muslim women on Portland light rail train when three men intervened on their behalf.

Police say that Ricky Best, Taliesin Namkai Meche and Micah Fletcher all were attacked when the leftist loon pulled a knife and started slashing the men. When it was over, Best and Namkai Meche were dead.

Now we’re getting a look at the charging documents involved in the case and what it tells us about Portland’s prosecutorial priorities.

Christian is jailed without bail on two murder counts, but it’s the attempted murder count that’s significant for this comparison.

Christian’s alleged attack on Micah Fletcher netted the Bernie Sanders/Jill Stein lover bail of $250,000 for attempted murder.

Taking a look at Michael Strickland’s charging documents, when the prosecutor trumped up the two misdemeanors into eleven misdemeanors and ten felonies, we see that his bail was increased to $250,000.

After being assaulted and then unholstering his weapon in self-defense and backing off a team of thugs who conspired to ‘throw him out’ of the Black Lives Matter/Don’t Shoot PDX, Strickland received the same bail as an attempted murderer.

Prosecutors took Christian’s lengthy police record, including robbery, kidnapping and multiple trips to the slammer, into consideration for bail setting.

Strickland? No police record. Same bail as an attempted murderer.

This is just another brick in the wall that tells the story of what happens when prosecutors and judges appear to set bail for political reasons rather than legal ones.

As I’ve pointed out before, the judge in this case has a daughter who is a regular leftist protester. It’s not known if she was at the event last July, but it’s possible personal bias by the judge was brought to bear in Strickland’s case in bail setting.

By increasing the charges and throwing everything against the wall legally speaking, his conviction now makes him a felon and unable to own a gun.

It goes without saying that Strickland didn’t even come close to attempting to murder anyone. His finger was never on the trigger, but his actions did, however, stop the advance of the same thugs who had just moments before roughed him up, beat him with sticks, and who, after the judge was done with the charges, magically became ‘victims’ in the case against Strickland.

UPDATED WITH VIDEO: Judge Lifts Gag on Strickland Video Showing Him Attacked by Antifa ‘Victims’-Including Benjamin Kerensa

[This post has been updated to add the video and remove references to its eventual inclusion]

This video recorded by Michael Strickland as he was attacked that has been under seal by prosecutors has been released from custody.

Now people will finally be able to see the video showing Strickland being manhandled – attacked – by black bloc outfitted anarchists and so called “antifa” at the Portland Black Lives Matter/Don’t Shoot PDX protest. These are some of the same people whom prosecutors turned into ‘victims’ in their outrageous case against him in Portland, Oregon over the last year. See posts about the case by clicking on this link.

It explains why Strickland, a videographer and journalist working for news websites, pulled his gun in self defense to back off the thugs who admitted in court to conspiring to physically throw him out of the protest.

The video shows what happened before people started filming Strickland being physically thrown out of the Black Lives Matter/Don’t Shoot PDX protest, march and rally.

Here’s Strickland’s description of the video:

“Violent Ben Kerensa, known domestic terrorist and federal felon, attacks me last July 7th, 2016. You can see him leading a group of mask-clad anarchists, 3 of which of with flag poles in hand, which I have seen used as weapons. They surround me, Kerensa verbally accosts me, then begins to physically attack me. You can hear me issue verbal commands as I start to retreat. Benjamin Jacob Kerensa begins to pursue me as I retreat, and calls for others to join in the pursuit. After retreating down the block, while being aggressively pursued, my attention was drawn to the bulk of mob on my right. At this point, Ben Kerensa begins to flank me from my left, my blind side, and I caught him out of the corner of my eye. At that point I draw and issue commands for everyone to get away from me. I had every reason to believe that Ben Kerensa’s 400 pound body was seconds away from flattening me into the pavement, and that several others, already in a mob mentality, would join in, not only beating me but also robbing me of personal possessions, which included my video camera, computer, other electronic devices, and my Glock 27. They left me with no choice but to draw in self defense.

Somehow, Kerensa and the rest of the mob are considered “victims” and were never charged with any crimes, even though Ben Kerensa’s actions clearly meet the definition of Riot (ORS 166.015), Assault (ORS 163.165), Menacing (ORS 163.190), and Disorderly Conduct (ORS 166.025), having begun the altercation in the first place.

Benjamin Jacob Kerensa has a long criminal rap sheet that includes bomb threats, impersonating FBI agents to get people SWATed, filing false police reports, improper use of 911, theft, writing fraudulent checks, and more. He also been known to creepily stalk students at PSU, attack female police accountability activists, and tried to get the mob to attack another videographer earlier this June.

It is best to stay away from him if you see him in public and have no contact with him. I post this as a public service announcement so that people know how dangerous and violent he is.

This video was my first person video of the events that night. I was arrested a few minutes after I was attacked, and my camera and SD were seized immediately. This video was part of the sealed evidence. The prosecutors, Kate Molina and Todd Jackson, and Judge Thomas Ryan did not want the public to see this video before the trial. The evidence has since been unsealed.”

Strickland was charged with 21 counts, ten of which were felonies, for defending himself. He’s been sentenced to 40 days in jail, 29 with time served.

He’s appealing.

Court: PDX Max Stabber & Bernie Fan Not Mentally Ill But WAS Pothead

Court papers show that Jeremy Christian, the man who is accused of stabbing three men on Portland’s light rail train, doesn’t have a history of mental illness, so what’s the genesis of his hatred?

Christian told authorities he’d never been treated for mental illness after they arrested him for murdering two men and stabbing a third on the light rail train on May 26th.

VictoriaTaft.com

53-year-old Ricky John Best and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche died from stab wounds inflicted by Christian, according to police.  A third man, 21-year-old Micah David-Cole Fletcher, was wounded.  Fletcher is a bit of a regular on the Portland protest scene.

Documents show that the 35-year-old North Portland resident was a regular and heavy user of pot and received treatment for that as part of his probation.

This information comes from court documents and rely upon his own declarations of mental health treatment  (none).

Willamette Week reported that Christian has a history of incarceration, including doing time in federal prison:

As has been previously reported, Christian was convicted of kidnapping and the unlawful use of a dangerous weapon after a 2002 convenience story robbery in North Portland. After serving a 90-month sentence for those convictions, he was convicted in 2011 on a federal felon-in-possession of a gun charge. After violating the terms of that conviction, he served about seven months in federal prison and was released in May 2014.

VictoriaTaft.com received the screenshots of the documents including this one:

Christian had a hatred for several politicians, including Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. He had a bromance with Bernie Sanders and liked Jill Stein.

As you may have seen by now his Facebook page was filled with his love of the left. Here are just two of the examples:

People who haven’t spent years talking to themselves and becoming numbed in prison may spot what we would consider mental illness going on here. We think a person who would do what he’s accused of is crazy.

But with Wednesday’s deliberate targeting of Republican lawmakers by another Bernie Sanders supporter, “antifa” violence, anger by Democrats over the fixing of the primary by the Hillary Clinton campaign, we’ve seen much more violence coming from the left.

Democrat Caught On Video Sues James O’Keefe to Shut Him Up

The law fare crowd has filed a SLAPP lawsuit against undercover reporter James O’Keefe, of Project Veritas fame, to bleed him dry so he can’t continue to expose Democratic shenanigans.

Bob Creamer, the convicted felon, fixer and confidante to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and friend of President Obama, has filed a lawsuit against O’Keefe for “breach of fiduciary duty” and using a false social security number,  allegations O’Keefe denies.

O’Keefe said:

“Robert Creamer believes that by suing us, he can intimidate us. I will not be silenced – only over my dead body!

“We are on the right side of the law and will not stop exposing the truth. Right now, the Attorney General of Wisconsin is still investigating possible criminal charges against Scott Foval. This lawsuit further justifies the need to drain the swamp. Our army of guerrilla journalists, which grows daily, will continue to expose the malfeasance and corruption committed by these organizations.

“In fact, we will be deploying a new batch of freshly trained journalists next week to shine additional light on the cockroaches of the corrupt DC establishment.

“We will not be intimidated. We will not be silenced. We will find out who is funding this lawsuit. We will never stop exposing the truth. We will not back down.”

The $1 million complaint stems from O’Keefe’s devastating expose of voter fraud and “bird dogging” at Trump rallies to get his backers to be baited into yelling or worse at Democratic operatives.

O’Keefe denies all of Creamer’s complaints, but it will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend the lawsuit.

Still, O’Keefe said he looks forward to deposing Creamer, the felon who’s married to Illinois Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky.

‘Free Speech’ Rally Portland Mayor Tried to Cancel Was Peaceful — Then ‘Antifas’ Grabbed Bricks…

I apologize for the code issues on my website. I’m aware and trying to fix. Thank you.

Look at all those bricks, shivs, spears and mayhem-making equipment possessed by … “anti fascists.” From my piece in Independent Journal Review:

The free speech rally held on Sunday by some Portland, Oregon, area conservatives almost didn’t happen when the mayor demanded that the permit be revoked.

Mayor Ted Wheeler asserted that the rally should be canceled because of possible violence by what he called “alt-right” protesters, following the murders of two men who came to the defense of two Muslim women being hassled by a man hurling racial slurs on a commuter train.

Video: Watch Strickland Attacker Ben Kerensa Urge Attack on Yet ANOTHER Citizen Journalist

“We got Nate Millsap right here!” came a voice in a sort of ‘up talk’ carnival barker’s cadence.

The voice is believed by Millsap to belong to the scarf-wearing, black bloc attired
Benjamin Kerensa and it sent a frisson of excitement through the pack of similarly attired … people.

Kerensa perjured himself on the stand multiple times  in the Michael Strickland case. He testified for the prosecution that  he wasn’t part of black bloc, that he never pushed or pulled Strickland to throw him out and that Strickland  drew his gun multiple times, among other obvious lies.

Indeed,  Kerensa, a multiple multi state and federal prisoner, bomb threatener, FBI impersonator,  hoaxer and hacker,  conspired with others to assault Strickland, to throw him out of a Black Lives Matter/Don’t Shoot PDX event nearly a year ago. Strickland was only videotaping the event.

The thugs roughed up Strickland  which Strickland’s still-quashed video demonstrates.

Those thugs became ‘victims’ in the eyes of the prosecution and Strickland was brought up   on 21 counts, ten of which were felonies. They could have landed Strickland in prison for more than 50 years. Strickland was sentenced to 40 days in jail when he was sentenced in May.

And Nate Millsap, also a witness for the prosecution,  took high quality video which showed the gang of thugs backing Strickland up and threatening him. Later, Millsap, realizing what his video showed, publicly came out in support of Strickland. All of those moves made him public enemy #1 with the black bloc crowd.

And that’s why they confronted him on Sunday,  as you can see from from Millsap’s own videos below:

“Fucking Millsap Get him the fuck outta here! GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE! GO BACK TO YOUR (unintelligible) GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE, NATHAN!

Millsap: “I’m here filming.

Mob: (unintelligible) GET BACK TO YOUR SIDE!

Millsap: “I’m not on a side! I’m here independently.

Black Bloc: “GET BACK TO YOUR SIDE!”

Millsap: “I’m not on a side, I’m here independently!

Black Bloc: “Get out!” (something is thrown at Millsap)

(laughs are heard)

Black Bloc guy starts chant, “Hey, hey, ho, ho this racist scum has got to go!”

What do we call black bloc ‘anarchists’ now? ‘Protester’ is too benign a descriptor. ‘Terrorist’ seems too harsh. They haven’t killed anyone … yet, although violence is clearly in their wheel house.

They bring weapons:

Members, who fancy themselves as anarchists then morph  to become ‘anti fascist’ – meaning anti anyone to the right of them,  continue to beat, shoot, assault, jump, punch, club, gas innocents and interrupt others’ lives by blocking roads, trains, freeways and bridges.

Like this guy who was beaten right in front of Millsap last Sunday by the – what do they call themselves again? Oh, yes “anti-fascists.” The same people who, like the brown shirts before them, dress in uniforms and take it upon themselves to be judge, jury and executioner of people who hold different political views.

And now Millsap has a target on his back,  just like Leo Stratton had before him and just as Michael Strickland did before them.

And the one guy who has been there every, single time is ‘victim’ Ben Kerensa.

And look at him try to scamper out of Millsap’s view finder here:

Viral Video: Oregon Vet Ty Raddue Is Reunited With Key Vietnam War Memento

You may know Ty Raddue. He’s an irascible presence on Facebook and in Oregon politics.

You may also know that he’s had a very tough year. Besides fighting physical problems, his wife, Sandy, died mere months ago.

So it was that Ty’s son Zane put a smile on his Dad’s face by reuniting Ty with an emblem of his service for our country.

Zane explains:

At the beginning of this year, I ran across a posting in a Vietnam reenactors group on Facebook by someone in the UK looking for more info on a helmet he had recently picked up. In the pictures that were posted, you could faintly make out my fathers name written on the sweat band of the helmet liner.

After contacting the owner, he agreed to ship the helmet to me so I could give it back to my father, in exchange for a similar helmet. After a month or so of back and forth contact, and waiting for shipping both ways overseas, my father, a US Army Veteran who served in Vietnam from 1968-1969 was reunited with his helmet. At the time that it was given to him, he had no idea about this exchange, and it came as a complete surprise to him.

The story has been featured on MSN and other sites.

Nice reunion. See it for yourself below.

Trump EPA Transition Point Man Myron Ebell in Portland for Talk

Myron Ebell is one of the people I always go-to for expertise on climate/global warming issues. And at a time when the Trump Administration is considering pulling out of the Paris Accords pertaining to global warming, his viewpoint couldn’t be more timely.

The Oregon born, Competitive Policy Institute’s global warming expert, served as the Trump transition point man at the Environmental Protection Agency.

The left calls him a climate “denier,” but he likes to think of himself as a skeptic, you know, like science is supposed to be.

Climate fabulists bray that their viewpoints are based exclusively on science. It’s science all right: political science.

On Thursday, June 8th, he’ll be the guest of Cascade Policy Institute in Portland for a talk on what he’s been up to lately.
