• Seattle Neighborhood Leaving The USA? Courtesy of Antifa?

    Surge Summary: Antifa and other Leftist groups are claiming to secede from the United States from a part of Seattle. The mayor of the city and governor of the state aren’t doing much about it at this point. President Trump threatens to take action if they do not.

    [Wednesday] we told you that Antifa and other left-wing separatists had seized an abandoned police station and several blocks of downtown Seattle.

    Once they seized the police station, guess what they did next?  They established a border!  They set up barriers securing their territory.  A makeshift sign reads, “You are now leaving the U.S.A.”

    What is their agenda?  Of course, they want the police abolished.  They want all convicted minority felons currently in prison to get a new trial.  They want the courts and prisons abolished too.  And they want to reinstitute segregation so that only black doctors can treat black patients.

    So far, the progressive mayor of Seattle and Washington Governor Jay Inslee have done nothing to restore law and reclaim the police station.  When the governor was asked about this fiasco at a press conference [Wednesday], he appeared clueless.

    If Inslee really doesn’t know that a radical group has taken control of part of the biggest city in his state, he should resign immediately.

    Seattle had this coming.  It’s one of those “sanctuary cities” that has declared itself independent from the immigration laws of this country.  Well, now leftist revolutionaries are declaring themselves a sanctuary of sorts, independent from Seattle and the state of Washington.

    But let me state the obvious:  If this were a group of armed men associated with the political right, it would be the lead story on every network news channel.  The calls in Congress for immediate action by the president would be deafening.

    Last night, President Trump tweeted to the mayor of Seattle and the governor of Washington state:  “Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stopped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!”

    The president is absolutely right.  This is not a joke.  We’ve seen over and over again that whatever is being done by progressives on the Left Coast eventually comes to a city near you.  How long before leftists seize parts of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Miami or New York City?
