Atlanta, D.C., Manhattan, Kenosha, Seattle, and now Portland again: America is quickly approaching a state of open insurrection. Deaths on the streets may only the beginning. What if an organized and funded Antifa or Black Lives Matter group attacks an Army Reserve or National Guard armory? Are we that far off from that kind of Harper’s Ferry/Fort Sumter moment?

And if recent events in Kenosha are any guide, then the result of such an attack would be two Bolshevik KIA and another Bolshevik WIA. Our men would emerge generally unscathed.

Once again in Portland, the recent process repeated itself Saturday night. But this time, it looks as if one of ours, Jay Bishop, is KIA. It is doubtful his friends and comrades will forget his martyrdom.

Fox News offered the following: “Violent clashes between a massive pro-Trump caravan that drove through Portland, Ore., and Black Lives Matter protesters left at least one person dead in a shooting Saturday evening, according to reports.  An Associated Press freelance photographer heard three gunshots and then observed police medics working on the body of the victim, who appeared to be a white man. The freelancer said the man was wearing a hat bearing the insignia of Patriot Prayer, a conservative group whose members have frequently clashed with protesters in Portland in the past… Protesters attempted to stop caravaners by standing in the street, and videos from the scene showed sporadic fighting, as well as Trump supporters firing paintball pellets at opponents and using bear spray as counter-protesters threw things at the Trump caravan.”

Portland Police Bureau: “Officers heard sounds of gunfire from the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street. They responded and located a victim with a gunshot wound to the chest. Medical responded and determined that the victim was deceased.”

So there it is. Will we one day revere Jay Bishop as we revere the victims of the Boston Massacre today? Because, given our history and rich patriotic tapestry, these seditious Bolsheviks are not just going after Donald Trump, the Republicans, or other present manifestations of traditional America. They are targeting for destruction the American dream and all its icons.

And, in our nation’s capitol.

From Christopher Columbus to Donald Trump, from cowboys to astronauts, from the men at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima to Kabul, what they seek to destroy is the will to fight for freedom and the reasons to fight for it as well.

Portland and Kenosha are just symptoms of the disease. It’s a highly covert malady, for with the biggest journalistic community in the world we somehow have not yet uncovered who is funding Antifa and Black Lives Matter and who is coordinating and supplying their attacks on American streets.

The suspects are numerous: the Democratic National Committee, George Soros, the Chinese, the Biden campaign, Iran, or all of the above in specific or vague collusion. One thing is certain—this is just not about an election. This is about the very basic nature of this nation and its future. Only one side can win.
