    Patriots are storming a government building because they were locked out.

    PT News Network on YouTube - live right now.

    A turning point, it seems.

    It would help if you would state location!

    PT News Network had it - Salem.

    Over now apparently. Reliable (because it's all live feeds) reporting can be found on Twitch (Just Chatting section, which is for live feeds) or Facebook (search for [Insert City] Live) or Live YT channels such as PT, Jeff Mac and others.

    These are the real events as they are happening. Mainstream media does not provide much insight or even reporting on the unrest I have been watching over the last few months. The closest we got was Michelle Obama selling to the nation that mainly peaceful demonstrations had resulted in very little mayhem. She probably wasn't bare-faced lying either - unless she's watching YouTube at midnight every Saturday, where would she get her info from? Not CBS or Fox, that's for sure.

    Let me guess - I could be wrong but I'll put 10 pounds on it anyway. The article(s) made the protesters/rioters/[NOT good citizens]/hooligans out to be lunatic Trump supporters and right wing extremists. They tried to unlawfully enter a building. Police were attacked. Stuff like that. There would have been no mention that the disruption was due to the legislature meeting in private without public attendance, which would be constitutionally disallowed, say some.

    The ironic thing is that the meeting they were trying to break into wasn't even happening in that place - it was done remotely over Zoom. Not a good look really.

    I have no knowledge of Oregon's rules about legislature meetings, but breaking windows, etc. is illegal.

    Me neither. They would argue that the actions of the legislature were illegal but I don't think it would fly in court as a defence to a charge of criminal damage.

    Ooh, let's look at what nefarious things they were talking about in that "illegal session":

    Readings of the following:
    A bill to appropriate money form the general fund to the emergency board.
    A bill requiring distribution of funds to residential landlords to offset non-payment of rent since April.
    A bill to limit liability of school for certain claims during the the Covid-19 emergency
    A bill to do the same for hospitals and other health care providers.
    A bill to allow licensed liquor sellers to sell and deliver sealed single serving mixed drinks for off premise consumption.
    It sure was a good thing these "patriots"* were there to try and stop these obvious abuses of power!

    * and I use this label with the greatest sarcasm possible. Those thugs wouldn't have known true patriotism if it bit them in the behind.

    'A bill to allow licensed liquor sellers to sell and deliver sealed single serving mixed drinks for off premise consumption'. The founding fathers would have been proud to see such a brave and thoughtful legislature ensuring the rights of the citizenry to obtain pina coladas to take away.
