Violence Ensues Across the Country Post Election Day
Although the final results of the election remain unclear, protests broke out in cities across the U.S., with people urging that every ballot be counted in the race between Incumbent President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The Oregon National Guard was called into Portland after protests turned violent on Wednesday night, police said.
Authorities said at least 11 people were arrested after two groups of protesters converged in downtown Portland, with some protesters throwing objects — including a Molotov cocktail and glass bottles — at law enforcement officials.
A riot was subsequently declared.
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said the Oregon National Guard was activated.
“In the interest of public safety, Governor Kate Brown, under the advice of the Unified Command, has activated the use of the Oregon National Guard to assist local law enforcement,” the Multnomah County’s Sherrif’s Office said in a tweet.
In New York City, the NYPD said they had thousands of cops already on the streets Tuesday night and would deploy more over the next few days to cease any potential unrest.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that any peaceful protests would be respected and facilitated but warned that any violence would be stopped immediately.
“We will not allow any violence. I want to be clear once again about this,” he said Tuesday.
In a memo obtained by NBC News, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea acknowledged that protests may be ongoing for weeks.
“The Nov. 3 election will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era,” the memo wrote.
Several hundred people took to the streets on Wednesday night in Midtown Manhattan while chanting “count every vote.” Organizers called it the “Protect the Results” rally.
The New York Police Department tweeted that anyone caught with a weapon would be arrested.
As the night continued, the NYPD said that garbage fires had been started in different parts the West Village, with police arresting more than 20 people.
Several arrests were also made at a protest in Denver, police there said.
At least seven people were arrested at a Seattle rally.
Arrests were also made in Minneapolis as hundreds of demonstrators marched to protest the election as well as racism, CBS Minnesota reported.

REPORT: The Biden family received over $1 million from Chinese Companies
The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed financial records that reveal the Biden family received payments that totaled more than 1 million dollars from accounts connected to Rob Walker, a business associate of Hunter Biden, who received numerous lucrative donations from Chinese firms – inherently connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
The financial records revealed that Hunter Biden and Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, had worked with Walker. Why is this important? It is important because the investigation also revealed that Walker, Hunter and business associates James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinksi had a a joint-venture called Sinohawk Holdings, which was planning to partner with Chinese energy firm CEFC, according to reports.
Moreover, Bobulinski spoke out about the Biden families dealings with China. In an exclusive with Fox New’s Tucker Carlson last November, he accused President Biden of being directly entangled “in a plot to make millions of dollars as part of Bobulinski and the first son’s 2017 SinoHawk Holdings venture with the Chinese state-owned energy company CEFC,” as reported.
“Hunter Biden, in his own words, [has said] he is putting his entire family’s family legacy on the line to do business with the Chinese Communist Party [via] CEFC,” Bobulinski told Fox News. “(Hunter) says that in his own words, in numerous text messages and other things I’ve provided both to the FBI and other whistleblowers.”
The committee records were obtained by Republican Congressman and Committee Chairman, James Comer, after subpoenaing Bank of America. The articles revealed that “at least three family members” received large payments from a one of Walker’s bank accounts. That account is labeled as “Robinson Walker, LLC,” and one of the family members is Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s son Beau, according to Fox News.
Moreover, a spokesperson for the Biden legal team firmly stated that the payments did occur but it was only Hunter, Jim and Hallie who had received the payments from the Chinese firm. They said that the accounts “belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie – nobody else.”
Furthermore, the records revealed that the Chinese firm State Energy HK Limited had wired 3 million dollars to Walkers account. This took place on the 1st of March, 2017, only a few months after Joe Biden had left the White House.
The committee noted that, “After the Robinson Walker, LLC account received $3 million from State Energy HK Limited, Biden family members and their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months,” continuing to state that, “The recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account identified as ‘Biden.’”
With the current tensions between the U.S., Russia, and China this should be a concern to all people residing in the United States. If the Biden family has been receiving payments from Chinese owned companies we should all be worried about the integrity of the family and the leverage China has over our current President. The real question is how exposed is the Biden family to Chinese influence?
What information could’ve been captured by Chinese intelligence and if so, how far did Chinese intelligence penetrate our government. It isn’t far fetched. Why, because President Biden was negligent with classified information, even as far back as his time in the Senate. The recent FBI raids revealed that top secret documents found in Biden’s office also were obtained during his time as Vice President.
More importantly, the Biden family finances expose a very real threat to our republic, when our leadership is on the payroll of our adversaries. And even if Biden didn’t directly receive payments from China, his family did and that in and of itself, doesn’t mean he didn’t profit from it.
