House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, told popular social media figure Austen Fletcher, also known as “Fleccas,” that Antifa is “a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.”

Fletcher said in a tweet Sunday that he “ran into” the top Democrat lawmaker while in Washington when he “asked him to disavow the Antifa violence/rioting in Portland.”

Nadler was soon escorted to his car by an individual after quickly responding to Fletcher who continued, “Sir, there’s videos everywhere online. There’s fires and riots. They’re throwing fireworks at federal officers, DHS is there. Look online, it gets crazy, Mr. Nadler.”

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, violent anarchists have created chaos for over eight weeks in Portland and continue attempts to destroy the Hatfield Federal Courthouse, using ropes, saws, hammers, bolt cutters, and power tools.

Moreover, the rioters have aimed hard projectiles, mortar style fireworks and blinding lasers at law enforcement in the area, according to DHS.

Saturday was no different with thousands gathering to try to tear down the reinforced fence erected to protect the Courthouse. In the early morning hours on Sunday, rioters managed to pull down part of the fence.

Portland Police Bureau quickly made a riot declaration and a tense standoff between the anarchists and law enforcement attempting to quell the situation soon took place, resulting in the injuries of 14 federal law enforcement officers, one Federal Protective Service officer.

Six individuals were also arrested for assaulting federal law enforcement and two others for not complying with law enforcement orders, according to DHS.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Published

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
