At leapfrogging time in the swamp
There's glomping galore! What a romp!
There's grabbing of... taxes
And scratching of... backs
As some talk of a pump, a la Trump,
Or development deals for a dump
To be paid for someday by the chump
Standing stolidly there on that stump.

And speaking of imperial monuments...
A stoic might smile at Rome twilit
As purple pales swiftly to violet
And up pops the son:
"Dad, you had a good run...
But I'm flushing this dump down the toilet."

Or brazen statues...
Give ne your tired, your poor, your sick!

They'll cut my chicken, learn a trick,
Y be latinx, nunca spic...
Unless of course they think or grump
Or vote for Comandante Trump.

Several windows were left smashed, and the front door to the facility had to be boarded up.

Agent provacateur, so old school Marxist tradecraft that the 25 year old Vassar graduates in the.media are clueless to imagine it. For those that do know it’s a hoax, they don’t question it because it OUGHT to be true.
Hey, give them some credit for getting the pic right-side up! Left-right flip used to be common with film, not so much when things are digital.
The house numbers in the original look vaguely correct, so I'm going with the pic being legit. Not that a half-decent digital artist couldn't fake it, but it's quicker just to spritz some spray paint. Curious color choice that yellow, though.
As for the back story, the car is owned by a politically active, young, woke, person of melanin (PoM) and the culprit is...(wait for it)... monkey-wrenching Buddhists. I know, Buddhists! But it's 2020, it's a whole new ballgame.
Tonight was the first night in a while where antifa didn't carry out mass violence in Portland. They shut down the streets around the SE police building but didn't do much beyond standing around shouting. Unfortunate for those who live there but no fires or assaults so far.

The helium balloons were found in two containers of old clothing items that were headed for Gaza during a customs and security risk assessment operation carried out by the Ashdod customs house in order to prevent the smuggling of weapons and dual-use goods into the Gaza Strip, according to a blurb by the Tax Authority.
The issue was handed over to security officials for further handling. The Tax Authority in Ashdod deals with 90% of the imports into the Gaza Strip and is making efforts to stop the import of balloons in order to prevent the balloon terror from the Strip.

[Rudaw] Security forces (Asayish) caught four Russian female Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... (ISIS) prisoners in a failed escape attempt from al-Hol camp on Tuesday, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
"Four Russian women with four of their sons were attempting to escape from al-Hol camp," SOHR reported.
According to SOHR, the female prisoners coordinated their escape with a water tanker driver working for the Syrian Red Islamic Thingy.
Several women have attempted to escape in a similar manner, with the North Press Agency obtaining footage of women hiding in a water tanker in June before being apprehended by authorities.
This is the second escape attempt at the camp in less than a week.
Five women were caught attempting to escape with seven of their children but were also stopped by Asayish, according to SOHR.
Located in northeast Syria’s Hasaka province, approximately 68,000 people live in al-Hol camp. 90 percent are women and kiddies.
Most residents are Iraqis and Syrians, half of whom are believed to have links to the terror group, after they were arrested during the liberation of ISIS territories during the campaign to oust the group from its last holdout in the Syrian town of Baghouz in March 2019.
About 10,000 ISIS-related suspects in the camp are foreign nationals, according to data published by Rojava Information Center.

Must be a relief to finally have a successful naval action - even if it was against a merchie.
