It’s not that late, but we’re awfully tired of hearing about President Trump’s “paramilitary” force in Portland and absolutely nothing about the anarchists who’ve been rioting for more than 50 nights in a row and doing their best to burn down the federal courthouse, preferably with some feds barricaded inside. We knew Saturday when #PortlandKidnappings was trending on Twitter that this would dominate the news cycle this week, and it has — so why don’t CNN and MSNBC send reporters to downtown Portland to ask these allegedly unmarked federal agents who they are. Rep. Maxine Waters is a sitting congresswoman and has no idea what’s going on, apparently.
She does have a theory though: This could all just be a trial run for when Trump loses reelection. He’ll already have his secret police in the streets of major Democrat-led cities. Even Hillary Clinton has suggested that Trump might not “go quietly,” though we’re old enough to remember rioting in the streets of Portland after she lost in 2016.
Watch this nonsense courtesy of Townhall’s Julio Rosas:

In other words, what the Dems are pulling now they will pull if they don’t win the election. It’s signaling plain and simple.

If/when they don’t win they will burn the country to the ground. What’s going on right now is just a warmup for November.

Well, Democrats are experts about not accepting presidential elections.

Didn't they say he wasn't going to accept the results of the election in 2016 either? And which party is still crying and refusing to accept the results?

Maxine, always good for a laugh. Takes a days old refuted nonsensical concept and repeats it, seriously thinking it's a real thing, yet her attack is attacking the rumor, unknowingly. An already refuted rumor. And a ridiculous one from the start.

Oh, it has been suggested, okay

“It has been suggested” = “I take no responsibility for my comments, but I want to start a rumor.”

“it has been suggested” = “I’m the one suggesting it because that’s our latest talking point to spread fear and disinformation. Also, this is me projecting what we dems plan to do when we lose.”

Everyone lost 20 IQ points listening to that.

I’m sure it has nothing to do with the continued attempt to destroy Federal property by illegal rioters. 😉

It never ceases to amaze me that some people think the military would just blindly listen to Trump. They really do a disservice to the armed forces by equating them to mindless robots

Love that these are the people who are supposed to help us get out of this crisis and recession

This kind of ridiculousness is what you get with no term limits.

They just recycle their talking points like their favorite wet dreams.
— Hitch (@hitch29969) July 22, 2020
They can’t imagine Trump voluntarily handing over the Oval Office because the concept escapes them — it doesn’t match the TDS-induced fantasies they’ve been entertaining since 2016.
And you in the media will just unquestionably run with this utterly insane take because you're narrative driven and totally biased

We’re sure Joy Reid pushed back pretty hard.
This is a setup for the lawsuits & next fake Russia scandal they’re going to unleash when Trump wins
— The Cheese (@thecheesefeed) July 23, 2020
@RepMaxineWaters or perhaps a test run for when the Dems don't accept the Electoral College win for Trump.

MSNBC is the two-way mirror that allows you to look into the liberal insane asylum.
— Kavu Stock (@kavustock) July 22, 2020
Suggested only by unserious Democrats who would rather politicize violence and criminal behavior than protect their own citizens (including CHILDREN) from dying.
This is DISGUSTINGLY reprehensible.
Never forget: They hate Trump more than they care if you and your family live. https://t.co/RidMsztn8g

Hillary Clinton again suggests that President Trump might not ‘go quietly’ if he loses in 2020 https://t.co/rF9pPmgn7J
