‘Over-policing didn’t cause this, underpolicing did,’ Andy Ngo Briefs U.S. Reps On Riots

Published

Journalist Andy Ngo, known for his work on exposing Antifa and American political violence, testified in front of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Monday morning.

“George Floyd deserves justice,” Ngo Told Lawmakers. “But so do countless Americans victimized by the riots.”

Ngo briefed the representatives on the violence he’s observed and fallen victim to as a result of the demonization of police and the resulting consequences of less police intervention in conflicts and riots.

“America is experiencing the consequences of police in retreat because of biased media narratives and poor leadership,” Ngo said. “This has allowed violent extremists to cloak themselves under the banner of ‘peaceful protest’ to carry-out widespread arson, shootings, looting and property destruction.”

He specifically cited Portland and Seattle where city councils have stripped the use of tear gas from police, while officers are assaulted with bricks, lasers, and projectiles in the two cities. He also pointed to several other cities across the nation where police have been severely injured.

“In New York, nearly 400 officers were injured in a two-week period. 150 local and federal officers were injured in Washington D.C. in a week. 130 officers in Chicago were injured in a 48-hour period,” Ngo testified.

Ngo reports mainly on the West Coast and has covered the violence shaking Portland for years.

“Like in many cities, law enforcement here [in Portland] is routinely demonized by the public and elected officials,” Ngo testified. “The mainstreaming of police hatred in Portland has created a culture of passive policing and a tolerance of criminal mob behavior. Who suffers the most? Law-abiding citizens and yes, journalists too.”

Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-OH, asked Ngo about his position on President Donald Trump designating Antifa as a terrorist organization.

Ngo said he agrees with the classification based on the actions he’s witnessed — especially a severe assault he suffered at the hands of Antifa in Portland last summer.

“Antifa organized an assault on me within view of the police—who did not intervene. They beat me repeatedly and so severely I had to be hospitalized. I was diagnosed with a brain hemorrhage, among other injuries,” Ngo said. “Since then, I have been harassed and stalked further by people connected to the same criminal organization.”

Ngo continues to report on the crimes and brutality of Antifa — including a video he shared today of Portland protesters once again calling for violence against him.

“George Floyd deserves justice,” Ngo said in his Monday morning testimony. “But so do countless Americans victimized by the riots.”

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
