A gory illustration of someone slitting the throat of President Trump currently decorates the window of an art gallery in Portland, OR, with the caption “FUCK TRUMP.”

This picture taken on the street outside the One Grand Gallery has been making the rounds on Twitter.

Breitbart News was able to verify this is real via the gallery’s Facebook page (archived here). Also, photos of the gallery on its website reveal the windows facing the street are the same. This means that anyone driving or walking by, including small children, will be exposed, not only to a grisly photo depicting the assassination of a sitting president, but the “FUCK TRUMP” caption.

The event surrounding this particular gallery showing opened on July 13 and is called “Fuck you Mr. President.”

In the era of Trump, this kind of wishful thinking surrounding the grisly assassination of the president is nothing new, unfortunately. As Breitbart News has documented, the same establishment media that spent a week hounding a rodeo clown for wearing an Obama mask has devolved into open apologists — if not advocates — for violence against Trump and his supporters.

Last summer, CNN’s parent company, Time-Warner, was a sponsor of a play depicting the bloody assassination of the president. CNN’s Chris Cillizza has tweeted out video of Trump in crosshairs, and in the lead up to Trump’s inauguration, CNN openly fantasized about Trump’s assassination.

If the establishment media are eagerly shattering every norm regarding the safety of the president, we should not be surprised by the appalling behavior of a local art gallery.

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez told progressive radio host Bill Press Tuesday that Democratic-socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “the future of our party.”

Transcript as follows:

PRESS: “There was a primary in several states — your state, home state of Maryland — and also up in New York, where the fourth most powerful Democrat in the United States Congress — Congressman Joe Crowley — was knocked out by a young woman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Twenty-eight years old, never ran for office before. Big progressive — calls herself a Democratic Socialist, actually. Sort of like Bernie Sanders did. She was a Bernie Sanders supporter. And in Maryland, Ben Jealous — another strong progressive wins the nomination of governor. What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?”

PEREZ: “Well, my daughters —I have three kids — two of whom — one just graduated college, one is in college and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria. She represents the future of our party. She ran a spirited campaign. I have great respect for Joe Crowley. Joe Crowley is a good Democrat — one of the sponsors of the Medicare for all bill.”

Ocasio-Cortez is a dues-paying member of Democratic Socialists of America’s New York City chapter, which recently called to “abolish prisons” and “abolish profit.”

The candidate has not endorsed or disavowed on those far-left goals, but her campaign platform does call for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), establishing universal guaranteed employment, and single-payer healthcare — i.e., “Medicare for all.”

Student Suspended for Refusing to Leave Class During Gun Control Walkout

A Hilliard, Ohio, senior was suspended for refusing to leave the classroom while the March 14 gun control walkout occurred. The student, Jacob Shoemaker, wanted to remain in class at Hilliard Davidson High School as a way to keep from being ensnared in the political debate surrounding gun ownership.

The Associated Press reports the school district suspended Shoemaker for staying in the classroom. The district explained the suspension by explaining that “it’s responsible for students’ safety and they can’t be unsupervised.”

Two protests occurred Wednesday—one in support of gun control and one against the gun control movement. Shoemaker did not want to get involved with either side. 

IJR Red reports that a photo of Shoemaker’s suspension letter was published online by another student. The letter said, in part, “Student refused to follow instructions after being warned repeatedly by several administrators. Student not permitted on school property.”

Army Veteran with AR-15 and Handgun Stands Guard Outside Indiana School

An Army veteran armed with an AR-15 and a handgun stood guard outside a nearby Fort Wayne, Indiana, high school Monday.

WANE reports that Mark Cowan, a member of Oath Keepers, “found a spot off of school grounds, but close enough to keep an eye on people going in and out of the high school.” He has talked to police and the high school’s resource officer and says he plans to stand guard until the school adopts “additional safety measures.”

Fort Wayne Community Schools released a statement about Cowan’s decision to guard the school while armed:

We take the security of our schools very seriously. We understand he has a right to be out there, but we do not believe it adds to the safety of our students. At North Side, as at all of our schools, we have security procedures in place. In addition, at North Side, we have armed police officers in the building every day. ⁉⁉⁉⁉⁉⁉⁉⁉ 

Cowan suggests Oath Keepers may similarly guard other schools in the future.

Donald Trump Speaks at March for Life: ‘Life Is the Greatest Miracle of All’


Reported by Charlie Spiering | 19 Jan 2018

President Donald Trump spoke live via satellite at the March for Life in Washington, DC, on Friday, thanking pro-life activists for marching against abortion.

“The March for Life is a movement born out of love,” Trump said. “You love your families, you love your neighbors, you love our nation, and you love every child, born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God. We know that life is the greatest miracle of all.”

The president spoke from the Rose Garden surrounded by pro-life activists and even a few parents holding their babies. His remarks were streamed live via satellite to screens on the National Mall.

Trump condemned the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision for increasing abortions in the United States.

“It is wrong. It has to change,” he said.

At one point, Trump was supposed to criticize that “the laws allow a baby to be *torn* from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month” – but, instead, he mistakenly said, “born.”

“Americans are more and more pro-life,” he continued. “You see that all the time. In fact, only 12 percent of Americans support abortion on demand at any time. Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the right to life.

Trump also endorsed the federal 20-week abortion ban and called for the Senate to pass it.

I call upon the Senate to pass this important law and send it to my desk for signing,” he said.

Defense Secretary Mattis: Government Shutdown Will Have a ‘Terrible Impact’ on Troops


Reported by Kristina Wong | 19 Jan 2018

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Friday morning that a government shutdown would have a “terrible impact” on military operations.

“Our maintenance activities will probably pretty much shut down. We will not be able to induct any more of our gear that need maintenance,” he said Friday morning at the Johns Hopkins University, where he was unveiling the National Defense Strategy.

The government is barreling towards a shutdown at 11:59 p.m. Friday night, with the Senate unable to pass a 2018 spending bill or a stop-gap measure to keep the government running. At issue is immigration reform. Democrats have refused to pass a spending measure unless there is a fix for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which the president rescinded last year, but gave Congress until March 5 to fix.

Republicans argue Democrats are willing to put the issue ahead of the U.S. military, which has been seriously affected by budget instability.

In the event of a shutdown, troops and some civilians will continue to report to work and accrue pay, but will not receive paychecks during the shutdown.

Mattis said half of his civilian workers would be furloughed, which would impact operations from contracting to military medical facilities.

“There is any number of projects we have underway that keep me at the top of my game and our military at the top of our game that are handled by civilians,” he said.

“It’s got a huge morale impact,” he added. “I’ll just tell you — how long can you keep good people around when something like this happens, is always a question that’s got to hover around in the back of my mind.”

He said intelligence operations would also be impacted.

“I would just tell you that we do a lot of intelligence operations around the world and they cost money. Those obviously would stop,” he said.

Troops themselves would also be impacted, Mattis said. While active duty troops would continue to report for duty during a shutdown, reservists would not report for duty For example, he said, “this morning or last night young guys and gals somewhere in Wyoming were driving off to do their weekend duty.”

“Those troops will arrive there at their armories, by the way, and told go home if there’s a government shutdown, and they will then drive a couple hundred miles back home. These again are stoic men and women, they’ll suck it up and say okay,” he said.

“And I would just tell you that training for almost our entire reserve force will stop and you must understand the critical importance of our reserves,” he said.

He called reserve troops the “only shock absorber” the U.S. military has.

“It’s not like the old days where you could draft somebody in and 18 weeks later have them in combat with the skills they need.

“Today’s infantrymen, they’re called infantrymen because they’re infant solders, young soldiers. They still take a year to train in order to have them ready to use the gear they have on them and make certain they have the ethical and tactical abilities to deal with the battlefield today,” he said.

“So it’s got a terrible impact.”

Chief Pentagon Spokesperson Dana White tweeted on Friday:

The government shutdown is destructive and puts unnecessary stress on the already stressful jobs of our service members. Time to put the money where the votes are and write the check! #FY18budget #PassTheBudget.”
