Saturday, Aug. 29, 2020, is a day Democratic Party strategists will remember as the turning point in their annals of election defeats — presidential, senatorial, congressional, and local. Americans do not accept criminal behavior, under any high-sounding name.

First, the television and online streaming groups combined to give the Republicans 147.9 million total viewers and the Democrats 122 million total viewers — Monday through Thursday.

Second, on Aug. 28, a 61 year old white male supporter of Patriot Prayer, Aaron Danielson, was shot and killed in Portland, Oregon.

At the time of this writing, police not not released any information about the killing.

An Associated Press (AP) freelance photographer apparently reported he heard three shots and then saw medics tending to a white man wearing a hat with the logo of Patriot Prayer.

This did not stop the ongoing fighting and vandalism that particular night; it has continued to plague Portland and other American cities — now for months, and counting.

OregonLive.com (The Oregonian) reported the next day, on Sunday Aug. 30, that a 48-year-old-man Michael Forest Reinoehl, was under investigation for the Saturday shooting death of Danielson.

Patriot Prayer is a right-wing group led by Joey Gibson. Mr. Gibson is a native of Washington state, as well as a Navy veteran. He is of Irish-Japanese dewcent. He is also a graduate of Central Washington University.

Mr. Gibson addtionally identifies himself as "a moderate libertarian" and supporter of President Trump.

Gibson is awaiting trial in Oregon on a felony charge of rioting, which occurred in May of  this year. Gibson was in an altercation with leftists at Northeast Portland's antifascist "Cider Riot" pub.

Gibson denies the felony allegations is awaiting trial.

Portland business and community leaders have begun voicing that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, a Democrat, and other Democratic political leaders, are "endorsing" the riots plaguing Portland for months. The months of riots and pillaging have ravaged local businesses. "Enough is enough" business-owners shout.

The business-owners complain — "Portland is not safe and clean." Mayor Wheeler told Oregon Public Radio, he thinks the violence will "eventually burn itself out."

There are fires and vandalism every night.

Now, some citizen groups have called for the mayor and the police chief to resign.

Cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Louisville, St. Louis, Kansas City, MO., Denver, Albuquerque, Los Angeles, and Seattle are a few of the Democratically-controlled bastions of domestic terror, burnings, riots, shootings, homicides, assaults, thuggery, and mayhem.

As of Aug. 10, 2020, New York City recorded its 1,000th shooting for 2020, and with only 821 injuries. For the week of August 16, 2020, it appears that New York City had 14 homicides and 76 wounded.

Headlines in the newsmedia and blogs claim New York's wealthiest are flocking to Florida due to coronavirus, crime, and burdensome state and municipal taxes.

Florida offers no state income tax, stable state government, good schools--- private and public and public safety. The Sunsgine State also is led by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis. In the U.S. Senate it is represented by two Republicans: Rick Scott and Marco Rubio. 

Republicans controlled the Florida State House and Senate since 1999. Another Democratic strong-hold, Chicago, had at least 107 people killed and 570 wounded in July of this year, according to the Chicago Tribune (Aug. 3, 2020).

It was the most violent month in 28 years. For the year 2020 through July 31, Chicago had an estimated 440 homicides and 2,240 persons injured. Chicago is in Cook County. The Cook County State Attorney is Kim Foxx — a Democrat. Foxx's prosecution record is abysmal. According to records, Foxx has dropped prosecution against 29.9% of felony defendants, or a total of 25,183 people in three years.

The Tribune determined that Foxx dropped 8.1%of homicide cases, and dropped 9.5% of felony sex crime cases.

Chicagoans make the argument, that Chicago is the heart of the nationwide Democratic Party. It has been a Democratically-controlled city since 1931, and is the home of former President Barack Obama and Socialist theorist and leader, Saul Alinsky.

However, "semi-Socialist Chicago" has many problems. Crime is just one of them.

The mayors of Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Denver, Oakland, and other Democratically-controlled cities are not  "Profiles in Courage."

Rather, they are to be pitied. They lack courage and a sense of honest civic duty and service. They are leftist ideologues who believe only a government of their political persuasion is fit to serve. The Democratic mayors of these cities excuse and ignore the anarchy and destruction that is unchecked.

The city-residents blindly accept whatever the politicians say, because "that's the way it always has been." But residents may have had enough.

Now, the "beast" of anarchy, lawlessness and chaos senses weakness.

It's now moving to storm the gentrified neighborhoods of Portland, Seattle, and other such cities.

Thus, leftist-Democratic officials of the cities are petrified. Their control is waning, perhaps rapidly.
