Trump Supporter Was Tracked Down and Murdered

2020 September 5

Will CNN and the rest of US media report or cover up?

Prosecutors have released new surveillance images from the murder of a far-right activist in Portland, after the prime suspect, a far-left Antifa supporter, was killed in a shootout with U.S. Marshals.

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt on Friday released the unsealed arrest warrant for Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, who was killed by a fugitive task force in Washington state on Thursday night.

The warrant charges Reinoehl with murder in the death of Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson, 39, who was gunned down in the streets of downtown Portland on Saturday.

The court documents reveal startling new information in the case, including that Reinoehl appeared to lie in wait for Danielson before the shooting, and sent text messages to his own son offering to trade marijuana for a handgun weeks before the murder.

The warrant also indicates that the victim himself was armed with a handgun, which was found in his waistband after he died, and did not appear to have been fired during the incident.

In the warrant affidavit, Portland Police Detective Rico Beniga describes the events leading up to the shooting, based on witness statements, previously released bystander video, and surveillance video from a nearby parking garage, images of which are being released for the first time publicly.

At first, Reinoehl was walking with a white female southbound on SW 3rd Avenue, and both could be seen staring eastbound down perpendicular Adler Street as they crossed the intersection.

After Reinoehl and the woman cross the intersection,  the white female pauses and stands against a building as Reinoehl continues walking.

Then, Danielson and Danielson’s friend Chandler Pappas are seen turning a corner behind them from Adler Street. Reinoehl is seen glancing behind him and reaching for his waistband.

Reinoehl then ducks into the entrance of a parking garage ‘and reaches toward his left front waist area,’ the affidavit states.

‘Reinoehl conceals himself, waits, and watches as Danielson and Pappas continue walking by. Danielson and Pappas do not appear to interact or communicate with anyone and continue southbound on SW 3rd Avenue,’ it continues.

Beniga notes that Danielson appears to be carrying a can of bear mace in one hand, and a telescoping baton in the other.

After the two men, who are wearing hats of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer, walk past, Reinoehl emerges from the parking garage and appears to be reaching for his waistband.

Danielson and Pappas turn right to cross SW 3rd Avenue, and Reinoehl and another unidentified man, described as Subject #2 in the affidavit, together follow them, walking out of the security camera’s field of view.

    Be sure to click on the Citizen Free Press link and watch the video. This was a planned Antifa assassination. It involved multiple people. Reinoehl was just the triggerman.

    The Left has emboldened EVERY lunatic out there, and all but guaranteed them immunity from prosecution. The shooter in this case was too stupid for his own good, and couldn’t resist bragging about the murder. He is now room-temperature, and good riddance.

    I will watch the video and post it on Facebook (who will most likely take it down). But since I’m only staying on FB until the election is over (sometime in December it looks like) it no big deal if they ban me now. 🙂

    JR: “how did they obtain the video from the “cameraman”???”
    I think the cameraman posted it to YouTube. No, really.
    The following is something that I got in email. They did the hit and were out of the area in 14 seconds —

    Think about it. The restaurant was closed several months. The employees were without work. These rioters not only disturb the restaurant patrons, but cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage to the restaurant, but also is food that is wasted or not paid for as patrons flee. And employees lose pay.

    The lesson seems to be that either you stand up and fight for yourself (your dinner, your job, your business), or you’re a dhimmi.

    One of the tables looked like 8 young women all dressed up, likely for a batchelorette party. They are hardly in a position to stand up for their rights.

    DrDog09, I’ve been watching Louis Rossmann videos for years on YouTube. He’s a typical open borders, diversity minded New Yorker who has been getting his eyes opened to the ways of the world over the last the few years. Normally his videos are fairly non-political and focus on the ups and downs of trying to run a computer repair business, but lately he’s been redpilled on the bullshit he sees around himself as New York flushes itself down the toilet over the China Flu and now the BLM crap.

    24 – Good, But watch every single agency like we just about every god damn thing else (esp. DoEd drag) their feet on any and all responses. Infact little disappointing DoEd isn’t specifically called out to id and defund any grants to any district\school\etc that has such contracts. Also it uses the word ‘should’…instead of ‘shall’ and says to ‘identify’ contracts (which will be manipulated via interpretations) that might be canceled…but doesn’t say to ‘act’ (actually cancel) on those identified – so even the few people buried in the system who might want to help aren’t instructed to act. Lastly…why the fuck did it take this long? Frankly strikes me as too little, too late.

    26 – That too.

    KH #38 – some thoughts:

    #1. The Civil War has already started

    #2. Naval shipbuilder: shades of Goodyear

    #3 & #4: Anyone offended by the American flag should find another place to live

    #5. Typically I watch at least a couple innings of the Tigers game every night. I watch the nationally televised games if a team I am interested in is playing. With the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I typically watch two games a night. I have not watched an inning of baseball or a period of hockey since this resumed.

    The NFL is going to be even worse than the NBA in terms of pushing the inequality/systemic (white) racism, etc.. The black national anthem, doing away with police/military honor guards, stories of racism, etc. The leagues, players, coaches and even players’ wives feel they have a “platform.”

    The BLM is backfiring for two reasons: 1. oversaturation – people are tired of it getting shoved down their throats and 2, people are becoming aware of what BLM is about (riots, looting, taking over restaurants, etc.). Smart companies are backing off. Goodell has committed to so many things publicly that he can’t back off.

    Unfortunately, my wife is highly influenced by the China Flu fear shoved down our throats by the MSM. When she starts grousing about “why don’t people just listen to the government (in our case California) and do XXX”, I have to remind her that she would have an entirely different attitude if I lost my job and we as a family were struggling to make mortgage payments, school payments for my kids, or perhaps even put food on the table. The government, mandating that people abandon personal freedom/responsibility andsubmit to poverty, is an unprecedented overreach of government power and we shouldn’t be surprised if it ultimately results in violent pushback. After all, where in the US Constitution does it say that Amendments 1 to 10 are null-and-void in the case of a bad flu season?

    But being in a retail job … or having a 3rd grader on the computer for “distance learning” … or being a devout church goer, etc, can suck big time.

    67,

    Well one could turn ‘critical race trainng’ to our advantage. Whites ARE the critical race, hence PoC’s need to be more like them. Course you have to mix it up with a bunch of mumbo jumbo proto marxist crap, but in the end the deal is you show up on time, give 110%, and you might get ahead. But we have to disguise it better, Jim Crow was not good enough.

    The best thing about BLM is all the “racial healing” their “peaceful protests” have brought about:

    If it happens at all it will have to wait till after the election with a Trump win.

    Watch they and other anti-trump sos to not just pull this, but to make sure to delay to every extent possible in-person vote totals on election night as well.

    Rochester appears to be the nation’s latest hot spot.

    A few facts:
    2010 population: 205,000 (down from 1950 332.000 peak)
    Population: 44% white; 42% black (2010 census)
    Mayor: Lovely Warren (42 year old black Democrat)
    Police Chief: La’Ron Singletary

    Sound familiar? Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago and Portland all had black police chiefs.

    Back in ’16, a guy named Michael Anton wrote an essay “The Flight 93 Election”. Memorable quote: “2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.
    Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain.”

    The guy has a new book out The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return.
    A book review is here https://claremontreviewofbooks.com/the-finger-in-the-dike-election/
    I recommend it, a good read.

    But the reason for this comment is that in the review, Angelo Codevilla says this:
    “In July, the Democratic National Committee engaged some 600 lawyers to litigate the outcome, possibly in every state. No particular outcome of such litigations is needed to set off a systemic crisis. The existence of the litigations themselves is enough for one or more blue state governors to refuse to certify that state’s electors to the Electoral College, so as to prevent the college from recording a majority of votes for the winner. In case no winner could be confirmed by January’s Inauguration Day, the 20th Amendment provides that Congress would elect the next president. Who doubts that, were Donald Trump the apparent winner, and were Congress in Democratic hands, that this would be likelier than not to happen?”

    We had a recent post (Poppy Cock!”) which discussed the Electoral College
    http://bejohngalt.com/2020/09/poppy-cock/

    My question is: if California, for example, doesn’t certify its electors does that remove CAs electors from the group needed to attain a majority of the 538 total?
    Or, does it reduce the total of electors, such that the number needed to win is that much less?
    CA has 55 electors, so would Trump need a majority of 538 or a majority of 483 (538-55)?

    CA is not a particularly useful example since those electors would go to Dems. But if Michigan, Wisconsin and/or Minnesota voted for Trump but the Dem Governors of those states caused certification of electors to be “postponed” indefinitely …

    Any state not able to provide an uncontested slate of electors, same as governor/SoS not willing to certify, those votes don’t count. By the way in some cases its the SoS that certifies, not the governor. So number of electors would be 483. The number to win in the EC would 242. Again the Founders were prescient, you can be a brat, but you F yourself in so doing.

    Another thing. Were the election to be thrown to Congress Biden would be certain to lose. California has 55 electors but in the House California would have only 1 vote for POTUS. It would only take 27 States to put Trump back in the WH.

    The Dims are playing an interesting game that to win they have to fill an inside straight aces high. They have to flip enough popular votes in mail in ballot states before December 8th. If the legal tussle causes imminent delay they may lose those EVs.

    Thanks, drdog. Yeah Dems assume that they won the popular vote in ’16 (might or might not be true: but irrelevant). And they assume they’ll win every popular vote from here on in. They shouldn’t be so confident.
