Portland city commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has spearheaded the movement to defund the police, and has even demanded that vichy “mayor” Ted Wheeler hand her control of the police bureau.
So imagine the surprise when Hardesty called the police in neighboring Clark County, Washington, during a Lyft ride home from a casino. Her Majesty was not content with the Lyft driver following company protocols and leaving the windows cracked a little bit. Evidently Her Highness started throwing a temper tantrum, and the Lyft driver pulled off at a gas station and ended the ride.
Hardesty refused to get out of his car.
Both parties ended up placing calls to the police.

Officers and deputies from the ballyhooed Unified Command arrested twelve particular individuals associated with post election night riots in Portland. The terrorists weren’t concerned so much with the Presidential election, but rather vichy “mayor” Ted Wheeler’s reelection.
From the official Multnomah County Sheriff’s press release:
Shortly after, a group of about 100 people began walking from the Skidmore Fountain through Downtown Portland, along West Burnside Street, breaking out windows as they moved. As police responded and ordered people to leave, individuals continued leaving a trail of damage. The ongoing criminal activity by such a large group of people created a significant risk to public safety. Unified Command declared the gathering a riot and gave repeated loudspeaker announcements that the crowd was directed to stop their criminal activity and leave. Those announcements were repeated at least five times over loudspeakers near the crowd.
Police in the US city of Portland said Friday it dispersed a violent crowd and made arrests after a mob attacked the home of the city’s police commissioner and the City Hall building.
The incident came the night after the Police Commissioner Dan Ryan was the deciding vote in the Portland City Council to turn down a proposal to cut the budget of the police force by $18 million, local broadcaster OPB reported.
A statement from the county sheriff’s office explained that police had accompanied a group of protesters, with orders to disperse, until they reached Ryan’s house late on Thursday. This was the fourth time this week the protesters visited Ryan’s home in an attempt to pressure him to approve the police budget cut.
With people leaving Democrat cities in droves, mayors and city councils are hoping to fill them back up again — with tourists!

The woman who is likely to become the next Mayor of Portland was caught on camera proudly wearing a skirt featuring images of Chairman Mao, the Chinese dictator responsible for around 50 million deaths.
Latest polling of likely voters shows that Sarah Iannarone is leading current Mayor Ted Wheeler by 11 points.
Wheeler has faced intense criticism for months over his failure to deal with nightly riots, looting and mayhem courtesy of Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators.
However, far from offering a different approach, Iannarone is seen as even more pro-Antifa than Wheeler.
Last year she proudly declared “I am Antifa” while embracing the ‘Antifa Mayor’ label.

Police made two dozen arrests late Monday night into early Tuesday morning following another violent demonstration in Portland, where protesters sprayed five officers with a chemical irritant and assaulted a Portland police sergeant.
Authorities responded to an unpermitted march on Monday night, observing activists equipped with shields, body armor, and helmets.
“The posture of the gathering suggested that it would become violent, as many such gatherings have been over the past 120-plus days,” the Portland Police Bureau reported.
Officers “moved into the park and seized numerous shields,” leading to some arrests. Authorities warned protesters to refrain from blocking traffic and informed them that the sidewalk in front of the Portland Police Bureau remained closed, to no avail. Protesters still attempted to block streets, prompting officer action, which was met with “violent resistance.”
The US Department of Justice has designated several cities, namely – New York City, Portland, Seattle, Oregon and Washington as jurisdictions that allow “anarchy” in a move that will allow the federal government to restrict funding for the cities, according to a statement released on Monday.
“The US Department of Justice today identified the following three jurisdictions that have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities: New York City; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington,” the statement said.
In early September, US President Donald Trump issued a memorandum directing administration officials to review and consider cutting funding to cities unable to prevent the establishment of lawless zones.
A Nebraska bar owner and US Marine that killed a rioter who was attacking him and his business has committed suicide, a friend of Jake Gardner has confirmed to The Gateway Pundit on Sunday — however, there may be more to this story than initially met the eye.
Gardner’s body was found outside a healthcare clinic in Hillsboro, Oregon — roughly 20 minutes outside of Portland.
According to a report from Omaha-World Herald, “Gardner shot himself after authorities in Hillsboro, Oregon, received a call of a suicidal party, said two law enforcement sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. The death happened this weekend, though Hillsboro police would not confirm the death or the time it happened.”
Sources say he was staying with his uncle in the Portland area.
Portland has also been a hub of extremely lawless riots and violence for months.
Friends of Gardner have expressed disbelief that Gardner was suicidal.
“I’ll be honest Cassandra, I’ve known Jake ten years, spent thousands of hours with him, and he isn’t the guy to kill himself,” Gardner’s longtime friend and radio host JD Sharp told the Gateway Pundit. “He sent me a message last week telling me he was sober for a year, and had just written a book.”
On Sunday, police arrested a man who confessed to starting a brush fire with a Molotov cocktail in Portland. They booked him in Multnomah County Jail. Portland being Portland, the authorities released the suspect that evening. The man then went on to start six more fires before the police arrested him yet again. The cops took him to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
“On Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 4:35p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to assist Portland Fire and Rescue with a brush fire in the 9600 block of East Burnside Street,” the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reported. “Officers saw that a section of grass along the I-205 freeway was burning. Firefighters extinguished the fire. No one was injured and no structures were damaged.”
A witness identified a suspect in a nearby tent and “officers arrested the suspect, who confirmed he lit the fire with the device,” a Molotov cocktail.
Michael Reinoehl, the Antifa activist who allegedly murdered a Patriot Prayer group demonstrator last week in Portland, apparently stalked his victim before shooting and killing him, newly unsealed court documents showed.
Reinoehl, who was killed Thursday night as federal marshals tried to arrest him for the alleged Aug. 29 murder of Aaron “Jay” Danielson, said in a Vice News interview that he acted in self-defense to prevent Danielson from stabbing him and a friend. But Portland police said in court documents released Friday that the incident wasn’t a chance encounter and began when Reinoehl spotted Danielson and another man, Chandler Pappas, walking on a street in downtown Portland.
Police said surveillance video showed Reinoehl turning into a parking garage entry after seeing the two Patriot Prayer members. “Reinoehl conceals himself, waits and watches as Danielson and Pappas continue walking by,” a police detective said. “Danielson and Pappas do not appear to interact or communicate with anyone and continue southbound on Southwest Third Avenue.”
