One Oregon woman showed incredible bravery we wished we saw more of during these tumultuous times. The unbelievable ordeal was caught on video. So unbelievable in fact, that critics believe the whole thing was staged or faked. The woman in the video, however, Kat Cast, defended herself on Facebook saying the incident “truly did happen and there is nothing fake about it.”
The video begins from inside a car pulling over and a woman, Cast, gets out with a gun while yelling “get on the floor. Get on the floor right now. Face down” to a young man who was on her property. He complies as she approaches him holding her gun, mostly behind her back and not pointed directly at him. “What are you doing on my property?” she asked. “Just passing through” he says, and she continues to question him.
“Did you light anything on fire?” she proceeded. “No Ma’am he answered.” “What are you doing with those matches?” he responded that he smokes. “Where are your F***ing cigarettes” she asked, after which he admitted he didn’t have any. Cast held him at gunpoint until police arrived. Unlike Cast, many property owners have been unable to protect their lifelong investments and livelihood. In many large Democratic cities, the criminals are better protected than the citizens and business owners.
Thus far Cast has declined to speak further publicly about the incident except for her Facebook statement. “I will tell you something though if I need to do this again to protect my family and my neighbors, I will in a heartbeat do it again, except this time I will not be as nice as I was.”
Cast’s anger, concern and emotion is no surprise. Violence, crime, looting, executions of police officers are plaguing the nation, as well as wildfires spreading across the northwest. “The video came after weeks of devastating wildfires have raged up and down the West Coast. In Oregon, looters and thieves have compounded the tragedy as residents try to evacuate from active fire fronts and law enforcement staffing is already on short supply” reports Fox News.
A simple PSA to anti-law enforcement citizens in favor of defunding the police: who exactly would you call to defend your property in a similar situation?
ANARCHY IN OREGON: Antifa Attacks Rock Portland, Riot Police Dispatched
Riot police were dispatched Saturday night after a march for “Law and Order” turned violent on the streets of Portland Oregon; descending into an all-out brawl after “rival political factions” attacked each other.
“Members of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer and their black-clad adversaries, known as antifa, used bear spray, bare fists and batons to thrash each other outside Kelly’s Olympian, a popular bar on Southwest Washington Street,” writes the Oregonian.
“The melee, which lasted more than a minute, ended when riot cops rushed in and fired pepper balls at the street fighters,” adds the article.
The stunning violence comes just days after leading Democrats -including former Attorney General Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton- fired-off heated rhetoric that urged their supporters to ramp-up confrontations with Republican voters and politicians.
“When they go low, we kick them!” yelled Holder at a recent speaking event.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” said Clinton during an interview with CNN.

AOC on Wildfires: ‘This is What Climate Change Looks Like,' US Has '10 Years' Left
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Monday on the ongoing wildfires ravaging hundreds of acres in California; saying “this is what climate change looks like.”
“This is what climate change looks like. The GOP like to mock scientific warnings about climate change as exaggeration. But just look around: it’s already starting. We have 10 years to cut carbon emissions in half. If we don’t, scenes like this can get much worse,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Two sets of California wildfires fueled by hurricane-force winds devastated California Monday; threatening more than 10,000 buildings in West Los Angeles and countless homes in Northern California.
“Firefighters battled destructive wildfires in Northern California wine country and on the west side of Los Angeles on Monday, trying to beat back flames that forced tens of thousands to flee their homes,” reports the Associated Press.
“California’s biggest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric, cut off power to an estimated 2.5 million people in the northern part of the state over the weekend in yet another round of blackouts aimed at preventing windblown electrical equipment from sparking more fires. And more shut-offs are possible in the next few days,” adds the AP.
The current blaze around Los Angeles has grown to 500 acres.
“I pray for all the families in the area that could be affected,” posted Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. “Pretty please get to safety ASAP.”
I 🙏🏾 for all the families in the area that could be affected by these 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 now! Pretty please get to safety ASAP
