Ivan Robles Navejas, a 28-year-old illegal alien from Mexico killed 4 police officers using his car. The suspect was drunk at the time, but he should not have been in the country at all.
Navejas had been arrested for DUI before but the Obama/Biden administration allowed him to stay anyway. He was charged with six counts of intoxication, assault with a vehicle, and three counts of intoxicated vehicular manslaughter.
The GOP Senators include Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA). The others are Ted Cruz (R-TX), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Mike Lee (R-UT).
They sent a letter to the DHS wanting information on Navejas, want to know his complete criminal record, and why he was not deported.
The suspect drove into a group of the Thin Blue Line motorcycle club, killing four. Investigators say that he was drunk and hour before the crash.
The problem is that Democrats do not consider DUI to be a crime worthy of deportation even if they have already killed someone.
Those killed include:
39-year-old Niles, Illinois Police Sgt. Joseph Lazo
48-year-old retired officer Joseph “GT” Paglia of Chicago
74-year-old retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jerry “Wings” Harbour of Houston
20-something retired U.S. Army officer Michael “Psycho” White of Chicago
The letter the Senators sent reads in part:
Furthermore, we were also disturbed to read that Mr. Navejas was shielded from deportation with status granted under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2013. After his DACA status subsequently expired in 2015, he remained unlawfully present in the United States without consequence and was afforded the opportunity to re-offend. Media reports indicate that Mr. Navejas was charged with driving under the influence in 2016, but ICE did not pursue deportation action against him. Instead, the agency exercised prosecutorial discretion because the Obama administration did not consider a DUI arrest to be a serious offense warranting deportation. [Emphasis added]
Mr. Navejas’ encounter with immigration officials following his charge for driving under the influence in 2016 should have been enough to see him placed in removal proceedings, but ICE was hindered by the Obama administration’s guidance on civil immigration enforcement priorities. Under that guidance, the Obama administration did not deem an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol to be a priority. The guidance further allowed for the use of discretion when taking enforcement action against those unlawfully present in the United States. ICE used that discretion in this case by choosing not to take enforcement action. [Emphasis added]
The Senators pointed out that even though he was arrested for DUI in 2016. In 2018, Navejas was arrested for aggravated assault after allegedly pinning a man to a vehicle, assaulting him, and biting off a portion of his ear.
I guess biting off someone’s ear was a misdemeanor during the Obama/Biden years. This is not the way it used to be. You had to obey the laws in order to remain here.
You have to understand, Democrats are interested in building voters. Protecting citizens does not get you elected. It is difficult to understand why we allow our laws to be broken so freely. Or maybe not. The rioters and illegal aliens are their base.
By ignoring their criminal behavior, they secure their votes. Illegal aliens will find it easier to vote with all mail in ballots.
Tom Cotton wrote:
“Ivan Navejas should have been deported for his crimes, which culminated in the alleged murder of several members of the Thin Blue Line Motorcycle Club. Four Americans are now dead from a failure to deport this dangerous criminal. We deserve to know why.”
Where are these domestic terrorists getting all of their money from? You would think that people with no jobs would have no money but you would be wrong. These terrorists seem to have plenty of money to move all around the country.
They have caught one of the men who assaulted Rand Paul and his wife and he is from Florida. He got to Washington D.C. but where did his traveling money come from? 27-year-old Brennen Sermon was arrested and charged in the attack on Rand Paul. In that attack, one of Paul’s police escorts suffered a severe injury to his face. An assault on a member of Congress is a federal offense but since Paul is a Republican all punishment could be waived.
Sermon, who is from Orlando, Florida attacked Paul and his wife as they came out after Trump’s acceptance speech. He will face separate charges for the injury to the policeman. He is already looking at 10 years each in his assault on Paul and his wife. But could be just five years each. Since it is a federal crime to attack a sitting member of congress. And also the wife of the same, no Soros based DA can drop the charges.
It is not yet known if Sermon was in town over the RNC convention. But that is what the police are looking at now. It could be determined to be a premeditated crime if he did. The only way to prevent attacks like this in the future is long prison sentences. Domestic terrorists don’t mind being arrested, knowing the Democratic DA will drop all charges, it’s another thing to lose your freedom for years.
“The were yelling threats. They were trying to push the police over to get to me. The mob were grabbing at us, and it got worse and worse and worse, and then finally, we decided to make a move. I said we’ve got to move. If there’s not gonna be reinforcements, we have to try to get to the hotel, which was another block, and they were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but they were also saying, shouting, ‘Say her name, Breonna Taylor,’ and it’s like, you couldn’t reason with this mob, but I’m actually the author of the Breonna Taylor law to end no-knock raids.”
Brendan Gutenschwager, a journalist known on social media as @BGOnTheScene, captured the attack on Paul and his wife. The video appears above. They needed reinforcements but none were available until they could reach the hotel. That was a block away. You think it’s bad now but wait until Trump gets reelected. The riots will get worse ana attacks on conservatives will increase exponentially.
The biggest problem with all of this is that it is becoming the norm but we could put an end to it with just a little cooperation with Democratic mayors. Maybe after the election when it is too late to damage Trump and his reelection chances, but don’t count on it.
Look for Washington D.C. to be a war zone during trump’s next inauguration. There will be crying and gnashing of teeth on that day. Look fr antifa to go crazy with violence. This time, we need to have federal agents all throughout the city. Mayor Bowser won’t let the police keep conservatives safe.
Michael Forest Reinoehl was killed in Lacey, Washington.
He was killed as a federal task force tried to arrest him for the cold-blooded murder of Aaron Danielson.
Reinoehl admitted to the slaying but claimed it was self-defense. Or actually what he said was he shot Danielson in cold blood because Danielson was about to kill a man of color.
When the federal task force moved in to arrest Reinoehl, he fled to Lacey, Washington, but the task force caught up to him there. It was there that Reinoehl lost his life in a confrontation with the task force, but the details are sketchy. Antifa has already been calling it an execution by law enforcement. But they were okay with Reinoehl killing Danielson. Go figure.
President Trump had been upset by the fact that neither state nor local officials had moved in to arrest the killer.
Why aren’t the Portland Police ARRESTING the cold blooded killer of Aaron “Jay” Danielson. Do your job, and do it fast. Everybody knows who this thug is. No wonder Portland is going to hell! @TheJusticeDept@FBI — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2020
MORE: Reinoehl had fled the state of Oregon and crossed state lines to Washington. A federal fugitive task force located him outside of Olympia, where he was killed as they moved in to arrest him. Portland police issued a warrant for his arrest earlier today. — Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) September 4, 2020
The Associated Press is reporting that federal task force members shot and killed Reinoehl after he drew his gun on the law enforcement agents. He who lives by the riot dies by the riot.
Danielson was a member of the Patriot Prayer group that had conducted a car caravan earlier in the evening. He gunned him down in cold blood in my opinion.
Mayor Ted Wheeler has allowed Antifa to have the run of the city but it has only made them more violent. That has made them bolder as well. They feel like they are invincible. at least as long as they remain in Portland.
In an interview with VICE News, Reinoehl said:
“I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color, but I wasn’t going to do that.”
“You know, lots of lawyers suggest that I shouldn’t even be saying anything, but I feel it’s important that the world at least gets a little bit of what’s really going on.”
Reporter Andy Ngo reported:
“Antifa accounts in their secret group chatrooms are calling the killing of Antifa shooter Michael Reinoehl a police ‘execution.’”
The riots in Portland has lasted about 100 days and has been brutally violent in the process. Antifa has burned businesses, looted stores, and attacked anyone that does not agree with them or their tactics.
The rioters have been able to continue their reign of terror thanks to DA Michael Schmidt who has dropped almost every charge brought against the rioters.
They have terrorized the city on a daily basis. In my opinion, President Trump really needs to name Antifa as a domestic terrorist group.
This would give federal authorities to move in whenever they show their heads. This is the only way to get this nonsense to end.
The city of Portland will never recover from this horrible episode. Businesses that were burned down will cost more to clear the lot by far than the insurance companies will pay them and the land is worth about the same as the cost of clearing the lot. And that’s before you even consider rebuilding.
The Department of Justice is investigating several “very big” voter fraud investigations in multiple states but has yet to give out any details. AG Bill Barr refused to give specific details about the investigations. He did confirm that he is aware of several voter fraud investigations and that some are pretty big.
At least 32 people were successfully tried and convicted of voter fraud in 2019. And just this week, 19 people were arrested and charged with illegally voting in 2016. They are illegal aliens. This was in part due to questioning from Wolf Blitzer on the possibility of voter fraud in 2020 with Wolf Blitzer. They have a limited time in which to charge people because if Biden wins all of these cases will just fade away.
Barr told Blitzer that mail-in voting could be opening the door to voter fraud. Blitzer tried to spin it as a partisan myth but Barr fired right back. Jimmy Carter and his selected panel decided that ,mail-in balloting is the most vulnerable method for voting. Barr pointed to a recent election that had 1,700 fraudulent ballots.
Barr pointed out that there is a huge difference between absentee voting and wholesale mail-in voting. In absentee voting, ballots are requested for a specific address. Mail-in ballots are mailed out to everyone on the voter registration lists which are wildly inaccurate. But, to make matters worse, some states are trying to do away with checking signatures on the ballots with the signatures on their voter registration cards.
“I know there are a number of investigations right now, some very big ones, in states.”
“We haven’t had the kind of widespread use of mail-in ballots as being proposed. We’ve had absentee ballots from people who request them from a specific address. Now what we’re talking about is mailing them to everyone on the voter list, when everyone knows those voter lists are inaccurate.”
“This is playing with fire. We’re a very closely divided country here and people have to have confidence in the results of the election and the legitimacy of the government. And people trying to change the rules to this methodology—which as a matter of logic is very open to fraud and coercion—is reckless and dangerous.”
In Paterson, New Jersey four people have been arrested for massive voter fraud. 19% of all ballots were fake. A federal judge has ordered the city to hold a new election. In Texas in 2018 nine people were arrested in a voter fraud scheme. Despite all the evidence, the Democrats would have you believe that mail-in balloting voter fraud does not exist.
If you look at the voting records from 2016, you will see that it would not take many votes to swing some of the states. One person could change an election, but three or four could overturn an entire state. It could also affect the down-ticket races, but local races could feel it the most. The fraud in Paterson proves that but liberals will tell you that you can’t believe your lying eyes.
Between the ballot harvesters, the dead, and illegal aliens, the opportunity for fraud is massive.
President Donald Trump opposes a universal vote-by-mail election, arguing that it’s an invitation for fraud and opens the door to Election Day chaos due to the inefficiency of the U.S. Postal Service.
Democrats are waging a well-funded legal campaign across the nation to make it easier to vote by mail beyond absentee ballots. They are litigating at least 80 of the more than 100 vote-by-mail court cases across the nation.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said his party has more than 600 lawyers working on election-related cases.
Associate professor Tressie McMillan Cottom is the center of attention today. She claims that all White people are deputized to kill Blacks. How accurate is that? 2018 is the last year in which the completed numbers are ready to tell a tale. In 2016, 234 Blacks were killed by whites and 514 whites killed by Blacks. Remember there are 5 times more whites than there are Blacks in this country.
Whites killed 2.677 whites and Blacks killed 2,600 Blacks. Almost identical numbers until you realize there are 5 times more whites than Blacks. So, are Blacks systemically racist against Blacks? If you look at the numbers, it would certainly seem so.
The law firm defending Rittenhouse described the incident, stating that earlier in the day, their client cleaned up graffiti from rioters and that he later “received information about a call for help from a local” car dealership owner who allegedly needed protection for his properties, apparently “including two nearby mechanic’s shops,” from rioters and looters. He and a friend armed themselves and went to help, the statement said, noting that their weapons were in Wisconsin and “never crossed state lines.”
The statement said Rittenhouse was on his way to a mechanic’s shop when multiple rioters accosted him, recognizing him as one of the people trying to protect the shops in the area. Rittenhouse tried to flee as he was chased by the “mob,” and “[u]pon the sound of a gunshot behind him, Kyle turned and was immediately faced with an attacker lunging towards him and reaching for his rifle. He reacted instantaneously and justifiably with his weapon to protect himself, firing and striking the attacker … In fear for his life and concerned the crowd would either continue to shoot at him or even use his own weapon against him, Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers, striking two, including one armed attacker.”
Whew. This is gonna be a doozy. They’ve sent them body snatchers. Ah well, if this account disappears you’ll know that I took it as a sign from god. https://t.co/EPgrllbRsX — Tressie McMillan Cottom (@tressiemcphd) August 31, 2020
If Cottom were white and wrote these words, she would be summarily fired but in the modern liberal world, Blacks cannot be racist even when they are. It is okay to smear whites even when the numbers disagree with you but never utter a word towards the other side.
Sen Ron Johnson told Dana Bash in an interview that the only way to stop riots is to bring out a superior force and to overwhelm the opposing forces. He said that peaceful protests are well and good but over a period of time becomes a siege. Shops are forced to board up their windows and are unable to do business. Their employees are unable to earn a living.
Peaceful protests are protected by the constitution but riots are not. Democratic mayors who refuse to stop the looting and the burning should resign from office in my opinion. They cannot do the job they were elected for and just like an illness makes them unfit for office.
No one wants to see innocent people killed, but not everyone is innocent. There needs to be time to investigate some of these occurrences. The guilty then must pay the price but not the innocent which is what the rioters demand.
Unless you have been living on the moon, you know how Andrew Cuomo screwed up the Virus mess. He ordered patients with Coronavirus to be admitted into nursing homes, killing thousands in the process. Now, a very important document is missing, and no one “noticed it” until now.
Fortunately, the internet is forever, and you can still things that have since been deleted. Throughout the country, that same policy was followed by other Democratic governors. Sending a deadly disease into a home with our most vulnerable.
Nursing home deaths in New York are over 6,600. But, that’s all. Any person moved from a nursing home to the hospital with Coronavirus was not counted as a nursing home death. How much difference could that make?
Riverdale Nursing Home in the Bronx recorded just four deaths due to COVID-19 in its facility. But seventeen more patients were transferred to hospitals and died there. So, even though the official counts say 4 there 21 deaths total. That is a huge difference. That begs the question, what is the real death total?
It’s could be anyone’s guess.
Did Cuomo really need to lump virus patients with the infirm? No. President Trump sent a medical ship to New York and a field hospital was set up in the Jacob Javits Convention Center. They could have sent all of their patients to those facilities and kept it isolated. They could have utilized them. But they did not. This is almost a criminal act, wouldn’t you agree?
Nearly every time Cuomo is questioned about New York’s nursing home death toll, he brushes off criticism as politically motivated and notes that his state’s percentage of nursing home deaths out of its overall COVID-19 death toll is around 20%, far less than Pennsylvania’s 68%, Massachusetts’ 64% and New Jersey’s 44%.
“Look at the basic facts where New York is versus other states,” Cuomo said during a briefing Monday. “You look at where New York is as a percentage of nursing home deaths, it’s all the way at the bottom of the list.”
In another briefing last month, he touted New York’s percentage ranking as 35th in the nation. “Go talk to 34 other states first. Go talk to the Republican states now — Florida, Texas, Arizona — ask them what is happening in nursing homes. It’s all politics.”
Now, we find out that the records online are missing and an error message comes up instead. The document showing the order has vanished completely. This is just one more step in Andrew Cuomo’s request that people blame others for what he did.
Thanks. What I did not get a chance to mention is that it appears Cuomo’s infamous March 25th order forcing nursing homes to accept COVID patients has been *deleted* from NYS websites. Was it inconvenient to have the truth readily available when he decided to blame Trump? https://t.co/CyPslDsyqQ — Tammy Bruce (@HeyTammyBruce) May 26, 2020
The four worst states for nursing home deaths are Pennsylvania’s 68%, Massachusetts’ 64% and New Jersey’s 44%. NY stands at 20% but remember, they fudged their numbers as explained earlier in this article. Notice that all four states have Democrats for governor and all sent COVID-19 patients to nursing homes.
Despite the fact that all four governors exposed nursing home patients to people infected with the virus, they still blame their massive death tolls on the president. I guess the president has a very responsible job. No matter what Democratic governors screw up in their states be it the virus or the riots, they place the responsibility on President Trump.
An antifa member known as the “Red Commander” was arrested on his way to a protest. He was caught with a flamethrower, smoke grenades and fireworks but he fell to the ground and began crying. Matthew Banta, 23, lay on the ground in the fetal position, crying his eyes out. He accused the police officer of lying on him, but of course no one was.
Banta was arrested last month for pointing a loaded gun on a police officer. He also bit and kicked the officer. The suspect was placed under arrest and paid a $10,000 bail for his release. In all, he was charged with:
second-degree recklessly endangering, use of a dangerous weapon (point a loaded firearm at an officer)
battery to a law enforcement officer, use of a dangerous weapon (biting an officer)
battery to a law enforcement officer (kicking an officer)
resisting an officer, use of a dangerous weapon
disorderly conduct, use of a dangerous weapon
He was also charged with two counts of felony bail jumping and one count of obstructing a police officer after this latest arrest. The police say that Banta often incites people to riot but he denies that accusation. Peaceful protesters often carry flamethrowers. They come in handy in case a beautiful girl needs her cigarette lit.
More from WBAY:
A responding officer says he saw four individuals walking towards a protest with baseball bats. One man was wearing a metal helmet with goggles and military-style gear with multiple pouches, and was carrying an Antifa flag. When the officer pulled his squad car in front of the group, they ran away. The officer caught Banta, who was carrying the flag, and says Banta “dropped into the fetal position and began crying.” He accused the officer of lying on him; the officer replied nobody was on him
Big tough guy in the fetal position and crying? He’s antifa all right. They are only tough when the police lay down for them. I just wonder why he was allowed bail this time, but the judge may not have been told about the previous arrest. Or the felony bail jumping charges. Banta was attending the Green Bay protest as an outside agitator according to the police.
A criminal complaint also said a bullet was in the rifle’s chamber, WBAY noted, adding that police found 117 rounds of ammunition on Banta, as well as an 8-inch straight blade knife in a sheath on his belt.
While Banta posted $10,000 cash bond after last month’s incident, a condition of his bond was not being in possession of a dangerous weapon, the station said, citing the Brown County district attorney’s office. If he gets picked up again, he will be held without bail. He violated his first bail agreement which forbids him from carrying a weapon. Add in two charges of bail jumping and he will be held until at least his trial date. He will get credit for time served. I am just wondering why President Trump has not declared Antifa a domestic terrorist group yet. Protests are never peaceful when they attend. It would allow police greater latitude in arresting and detaining them. If he is tried on all charges, Banta will have to serve a stiff sentence but it’s no less than he deserves. If more of these rioters were sentenced to prison terms, there would be fewer of them rioting.

Kate Brown, Governor of Oregon announced a plan to create a surge of police. That would be using officers from Washington County and Clackamas County.
Unfortunately, the sheriffs of both counties told her thanks but no thanks. They are both refusing to send their deputies. It’s such a dangerous situation as Mayor Ted Wheeler and Gov Kate Brown have created in Portland.
They say that the problem is not that there are not enough police, but because they fail to make rioters suffer the consequences of their actions.
Every day they arrest the same people and DA Mike Schmidt drops the charges against them. The next day they are at it again. Because of this rioters feel free to attack police officers with anything they can throw.
Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett refused to send his officers because of a “lack of political support for public safety”. Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts blames it on Mike Schmidt’s refusal to prosecute rioters.
“The same offenders are arrested night after night, only to be released by the court and not charged with a crime by the DA’s office. The next night they are back at it again, endangering the lives of law enforcement and the community all over again.”
The riots have been progressing in violence. But the city still refuses to make the rioters pay a price for their crimes.
Sheriff Roberts said that Brown never checked with him first. She just made the announcement, but that he is refusing to go along with her plan.
The sheriff’s refusal to go along is a blow to Brown, but she and Wheeler are to blame. If there were consequences for their actions, rioters would have stopped.
On Saturday a rioter shot a Trump supporter in cold blood. A second intended victim managed to get away as the shooter ran away from the scene.
The next day Brown blamed the shooting not on the shooter but on the victim. In fact, she praised Black Lives Matter for their ongoing protests. Is this woman insane? (That was a rhetorical question.)
From The Washington Times
Ms. Brown also said Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, whose jurisdiction covers Portland, agreed to pursue cases against serious criminals.
Mr. Schmidt in August announced a policy of refusing to press charges against people arrested for demonstrating or rioting unless police specifically found they engaged in violence. Those who refused to follow police dispersal orders, for example, had their cases dropped.
Sheriff Roberts said changing that approach is the key to regaining control of the mayhem.
From Oregon Live
Roberts on Monday criticized the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for not prosecuting people who have been “arrested night after night” and are “endangering the lives of law enforcement.” Court and jail records show that few people have been arrested multiple times at protests and that the majority of arrests have been for non-violent crimes.
The violence has been going on now for over three months with daily rioting. Mayor Wheeler not only refused to punish rioters but he marched with them as well.
He is running for reelection but the people of Portland are the losers. The other candidate is more extreme than Wheeler. She calls herself the Antifa candidate.
Kristin Dennis, Wheeler’s chief of staff said:
“We need regional collaboration because safety in Portland is an issue of regional importance. The mayor looks forward to continuing the conversations with our valued regional partners and will continue to work with stakeholders to address these and other public safety needs.”
Domestic terrorists committing violence is bad enough but Democrats egging them on is worse. Starting with Barack Obama Democrats have been urging violence against conservatives more each day. That includes liberal media pundits and Democratic operatives as well. The media avoids talking about liberal violence. The media portrays conservatives as violent but it is the liberals doing the rioting, looting, burning and assaulting.
Obama labeled the patriot organization that rose during his administration as the “the teabag anti-government people.”. Hillary Clinton referred to the middle of the country citizens as “deplorables.” Can you imagine if the shoe had been on the other foot? The shrieks would deafen you.
After Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was denied service at a Washington, D.C., restaurant, Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) encouraged her supporters to harass administration officials:
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. e’ve got to get the children connected to their parents.”
“We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again — will take this as confirmation that, ‘Hey, it just pays to ride the wave — look at me, I’ve made it through.’ “
Booker, who has been mentioned as a possible 2020 presidential election candidate, was speaking Wednesday at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness in Washington, D.C. He concluded his address by encouraging people not to be passive, and to instead “go to the Hill today.” “Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople,” he said.
Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) called on liberals to fight in the streets against Trump and his supporters. Kaine’s son was arrested in antifa protests.
Former AG Loretta Lynch called for supporters to march and bleed and die in the streets to resist Trump. I didn’t notice Lynch bleeding or dying, did you?
Kamala Harris said that the current riots won’t end after election day but she also says they shouldn’t. Isn’t that promoting violence? She wants what we are seeing to continue? She would be a heartbeat away from the presidency if Biden wins. Is this what we really want but refuse to ask for? Or is this what the left wants and doesn’t care if you do or not.
Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) last week called for unrest in the streets. You expect this from antifa or BLM but not our elected officials. She has pushed for the fund that bails out rioters. You don’t have to condemn the riots but you shouldn’t be promoting them.
Nancy Pelosi has called for civility but last week called Republicans, “Enemies of the State.” The riots are dangerous but rhetoric like this makes things worse. Dumping gas on a fire is not a good way to put it out, but that’s what Pelosi did. When Trump is reelected, you will see the violence ratchet up but will bring no condemnation from the left.
MSDNC host Joy-Ann Reid called Scalise an “extremist” but that was while Scalise was in the hospital after being shot by a Democrat. The shooter had become inflamed by liberal rhetoric calling conservatives extremists. But no one called the shooter an extremist. The left cheers violence but would oppose it if the shoe were on the other foot.
