Trump administration
Camouflaged federal agents have descended on Portland. Trump's DHS is out of control

If Venezuela or Iran were perpetrating this nightmare, the US would stand against it. Instead, officials are promising more

The incidents being described sound eerily reminiscent of the CIA’s post-9/11 rendition program under George W Bush, where intelligence agents would roll up in unmarked vans in foreign countries, blindfold terrorism suspects (many of whom turned to be innocent) and kidnap them without explanation. Only instead of occurring on the streets of Italy or the Middle East, it’s happening in downtown Portland.

Virtually all of Portland’s local leaders, as well as Oregon’s leading representatives in Congress, have condemned the situation and called for an investigation. But so far, DHS and the Trump administration do not seem deterred.

Acting secretary of homeland security Chad Wolf traveled to Portland this week to supervise the federal actions there, and he sharply criticized local law enforcement for not getting tough with “violent anarchists.”

Wolf told Fox News on Thursday night that he offered law enforcement assistance to the mayor and local leaders but was asked to “pack up and go home,” which he said is “just not going to happen on my watch.”

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler called the federal agents Trump’s “personal army” and said they should leave the city.

“This is part of a coordinated strategy of Trump’s White House to use federal troops to bolster his sagging polling data, and it is an absolute abuse of federal law enforcement officials,” Wheeler said.

They don't want the feds there because it'll prove they can't keep their own residents safe. It's hard to feel sorry for the people who voted for the government they now have, if you voted for these people, you've gotten what you deserve.

You proved the point that Trump is attacking "anarchists" to raise his poll numbers with people like you. Trump isn't doing this to "help" the people of Portland. He helps himself.

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown called Wolf's visit "political theater from President Trump" and said he "is looking for a confrontation in Oregon in the hopes of winning political points in Ohio or Iowa."

The state's four Democratic federal lawmakers also sent a letter this week to Wolf and U.S. Attorney General William Barr to oppose the federal deployment in Portland.

The residents are quite safe. The only threats to them are from Trump's Gestapo.

I noticed that NONE of the major networks (except FOX) use the term "riots" unless they put it in quotes, preferring to use the terms "unrest" and "protests" instead. The only outlets that use the term "riots" are LOCAL NEWS and alt news. Now, I assume local news has a better view than the national outlets, and less spin.

If all I did was pay attention to the lamestream press, I would have NEVER known that there were riots in Portland!

I read the title and assumed it was JAYNEZTOWN or JSF posting because I took it completely opposite of what was intended: I AM worried about the Constitution because the people rioting on Portland obviously don't care for democracy, they intend mob rule. And the biased (unfree, corporate-controlled) media is helping them.

Signym, that is not what Oregon government says, but it is what Trump would say.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown says that federal officers and homeland security need to leave Portland and that their presence is only fanning the flames to violent protests.

“Let me be very, very clear, having federal troops on the streets of Portland does not solve the problem and in fact, it escalates the problem,” Brown said. “I was very clear with Secretary Wolf about that fact. This is pure politics; this isn’t about problem-solving.”

In recent weeks Brown has been overly outspoken about the protests that at times turn violent. She addressed that saying violence solves nothing.

“We should be focusing our time and energy on tackling the racism in our justice system, in our education system, in our healthcare system and the violence frankly distracts from that critically important work,” Brown said.

Yup. They're not there to stop the tiny, insignificant amounts of violence in Portland. They're there to create it.

If Obama had done something like this, our resident trumpnazis would be howling at the moon about fascism and oppression.

But, since they actually LIKE fascism and want it implemented, they keep fellating Trump's tiny mushroom like the obedient little bitches they are.

The only amendment they care about is the 2nd. They HATE the 1st, and they'll get rid of it as soon as they can.

Back in the 1960's, there were 100 million Americans passionately against Communism. (Did I mention I was one of those who believed in anti-communism? It is a loony political belief passed from one Texan to the next, but I got over it. The actual Vietnam War cured me of that nonsensical belief.)

The politics of that fight against Communism did serious damage to America, but it was worse for the Vietnamese. Those same kind of Americans who wanted a fight with "communists", in some cases the very same Americans, now in their 70's, are passionately against "anarchists". This won't end well for America, with Trump, like Nixon, making living worse in Portland, instead of Vietnam.

Trump is attempting Nixon's 1972 election strategy, which worked beautifully to get Nixon reelected. It might not work for this election because Oregon is not Vietnam and Joe Biden is not George McGovern, 1972's Presidential candidate against the Vietnam War.

He's somebody's sockpuppet for sure.

But it's somebody who wants to just say a ton of shit that's even more horrible than what they feel they should say with their other relatively anonymous handle they always use here.

Looting, assaulting, killing was illegal in South Vietnam, but why did the President of the United States get involved when the elected government of Vietnam could have handled it? Because the President, Nixon, wanted to stick his nose into their business so that he could be reelected in Texas, for example, far from Vietnam. Trump is sticking his nose into Oregon to get himself reelected in Indiana. The Oregon governor has told Trump to leave, but he won't while there are voters to be persuaded in Indiana.

See The Assassination of Ngo Dinh Diem for how the White House operated in Vietnam, when it doesn't like the democratically elected government. It is a brutal story:

A Constitutional Crisis in Portland
https://www.aclu.org/news/criminal-law-reform/a-constitutional-crisis-
in-portland
/

While some federal officers had already been in the streets, we now have additional militarized special ops officers occupying the streets of downtown Portland, bent on inflicting pain and terror on people who believe Black Lives Matter.

Federal agents, including those from Trump’s Departments of Homeland Security and Justice, are terrorizing the community, threatening lives, and relentlessly attacking protesters demonstrating against police brutality.

Militarized federal agents have flouted court orders protecting the rights of protesters from local law enforcement attacks, used sharpshooters to maim people, and deployed military tools and tactics — including sonic weapons and tear gas. Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland have been shot in the head with kinetic impact munitions, swept away in unmarked cars, and repeatedly tear gassed by federal agents. These government-issued weapons are funded with our tax dollars.

Even more, federal agencies appear to be doubling down on these harsh tactics, saying they will not leave the streets of Portland and will take their disturbing practices nationwide. DHS, and its sub-agencies Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, already have a well-known history of abusing human rights and a documented disregard for human life. Now, they are using federal taxpayer dollars to militarize their agencies and ignore the bounds on their power.

Honestly, what Trump should do is just let the Democrat shitholes burn to the ground and offer zero bailouts for them. He's already denied bailout money requested by governors who have finally admitted that the "protestors" are rioters and criminals.

Really funny, BTW, to watch them bend the knee and kiss his ring after being so fucking stupid.

Trump's not going to do that though, because there are a lot of good people living in them that are trapped there because they wouldn't have the money to move even if they wanted to. Those places need to be saved by Marco's mask wearing terrorist friends.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


There's a Portland run-off mayoral election coming up in November.

According to the article:
Earlier in the year, there was a mayoral election with 19 candidates on the ballot, and Wheeler at 49.4% of the vote just failed to receive the majority needed to avoid the run-off. Problems of homelessness still plague the city, as does the use of police force against the mentally ill.
If Wheeler prevails, he'll set a record as no mayor has ever received 2 terms.
His opponent Iannarone isn't a candidate from the 'law and order' side however, they're both democrats and she has her own platform that highlights a different set of reforms, but reforms nonetheless.
The article indicated that Wheeler was the recipient of money from many 'big money' donors, whoever that is in Portland. It COULD be local business or it could be outside money.

But many things including CHAZ and the ongoing confrontation have happened since the original article was written.

My opinion is that this could go one of several ways, with to me one large unknown is who does the big money represent. Here are 2 different scenarios: 1) People are unhappy enough with Wheeler because of the violence and CHAZ that they boot him out just to make a statement, and big money (if local business) is unhappy enough that they don't bail him out. 2) People are SO pissed off at Trump's actions that despite CHAZ and the violence they retain Wheeler anyway just to spite Trump, and big money sits this out.



Ted Wheeler, Sarah Iannarone will square off again in November’s Portland mayoral race

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


BTW I posted this because there are a LOT of outside interests deeply involving themselves in Portland and pretending to speak for Portlandians.

So it seems reasonable to me to wonder what do Portlandians say for themselves.

Video Shows San Diego Police Officer Threatening To Shoot Protesters During Arrest
https://www.kpbs.org/news/2020/jun/05/san-diego-police-officer-threate
ns-shoot-protester
/

On Thursday, more than a thousand people marched from downtown to North Park and back protesting police abuse of black people in America.

But after the march, which went off without incident, a disturbing video shows the arrest of a female protester downtown by several men, who don’t identify themselves before whisking her away, in unmarked minivans.

The video does not show the men identifying what law enforcement group they’re with. What it does show is one individual threatening to shoot other protesters if they follow the minivans.

“If you follow us, you will get shot. Do you understand me?” said one officer, as protesters ask why the woman is being arrested.

Moms Showed Up To Protect Portland Protesters. The Feds Teargassed Them.

These are Donald Trump’s federal agents, he thinks they are doing a great job. Last week, Trump said, “It was out of control. The locals couldn’t handle it,” speaking to the acting head of Homeland Security Chad Wolf. “And you people are handling it very nicely.”

The Democratic Party politicians in Portland want to wash their hands of this brutality. But Portland police have been known to collude with white supremacists, as well as tear gas protesters under the orders of the Democratic Party.

This event makes clear the brutality of federal agents, as well as the police force: they will tear gas peaceful moms, standing arm in arm. They aren’t there for protection, they are in Portland to deter protests, to intimidate protesters, and to try to make everyone go home. However, the Black Lives Matter movement isn’t going anywhere. Rather, it’s going to get bigger: we’re going to fight against evictions, against layoffs and against every expression of police violence and brutality.

They do? Because I searched pretty thoroughly for polls of local Portlandians to find out what they were thinking. And I'm sure they've been done, but they haven't made it onto the internet. And that's why I ended up having to point to the upcoming elections as a measure of what Portlandians think.


At least one quote and link is needed.

Also, I found a lot on local news, which usually terms the events as "riots" and which runs counter to the national media. Since this is local news speaking to a local audience it is probably closer to the local POV.

I can't be certain, but I imagine if ** I ** were a Portlandian I'd be be tired of outside groups fighting their proxy wars in my city. BLM, Antifa, Boogaloo, Proudboyz, and so on. And if there was a way to get them out without troops, even the federales - since the federales have very limited authority but sure are the focus of a lot of clashes.

The problem with being the battleground for a proxy war is that the proxy warriors eventually leave, but the people who live there are stuck with ruination.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


Now HERE's a way to stop the fighting!

Protester dubbed 'Naked Athena' strips off and dares police to shoot her with tear gas during tense stand-off in the 50-day 'Battle of Portland'


A protester dubbed 'Naked Athena' confronted Portland police wearing only a face mask and beanie.

The unidentified woman struck a series of ballet and yoga poses in front of anti-riot officers at around 1.45 am on Saturday morning.

Surreal video footage from the scene shows the woman striding towards the officers, who were in heavy protective gear including gas masks and helmets, almost completely naked.

Oregon state law is pretty lenient on public nudity, and in Portland it is only illegal to be naked in public with the intent to arouse.

The standoff comes after the city of Portland marked its 50th consecutive night of unrest following the death of George Floyd, with crowds taking to the streets to denounce racial injustice.









And then? Naked Athena appeared and the little boys didn’t know what to do. pic.twitter.com/Elo69SsV0t
— Donovan “It was the blurst of times” Farley ???? (@DonovanFarley) July 18, 2020

Officers proceed to fire pepper balls at the woman's feet and another protester is filmed rushing to protect her with a makeshift shield.

However she side-steps him to perform a series of yoga poses in front of the officers and even reclines onto the street at one point.

Her graceful poses stand in stark contrast to the heavily-armed guards.

According to Dave Killen, a photographer for The Oregonian, the officers left around 10 minutes after the naked woman showed up.

'She was incredibly vulnerable,' he told the news outlet.

'It would have been incredibly painful to be shot with any of those munitions with no clothes on.'







n Portland, courts have recognized nudity as a form of political protest which overrides public decency laws.

It comes as the city of Portland has seen daily Black Lives Matter protests decrying police brutality in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Portland police early Monday detailed another night of conflict between protesters and federal forces outside the US courthouse, including a small fire outside the building and tear gas deployed to disperse the crowd.

A department statement said police officers did not engage with the crowd, and that federal authorities periodically came of out of the courthouse to keep demonstrators at bay.

Video posted online also showed protesters taking down fencing that had surrounded the courthouse.

'Dozens of people with shields, helmets, gas masks, umbrellas, bats, and hockey sticks approached the doors before federal law enforcement came out and dispersed the crowd,' police said.

'At 1.34am people lit a fire within the portico in front of the federal courthouse. Others gathered around the fire adding wood and other debris to make it larger
'At 1.42am federal law enforcement came out of the courthouse, dispersed the crowd and extinguished the fire,' the statement said.

Gas was used at least twice to remove protesters, the statement said, but Portland officers 'were not present during any of the activity' or deploy any 'CS gas'.

Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler said federal officers 'are not wanted here'.

'We haven't asked them here. In fact, we want them to leave.'

Wheeler and Oregon Governor Kate Brown, both Democrats, called the move an abuse of power by the federal government.

Top leaders in the US House said Sunday they were 'alarmed' by the Trump administration's tactics against protesters in Portland and other cities, including Washington, DC.

They've called on federal inspectors general investigate.

'This is a matter of utmost urgency,' wrote House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-New York, Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Mississippi, and Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney, D-New York, in a letter to the inspectors general of Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security.

The Democratic lawmakers are seeking an investigation 'into the use of federal law enforcement agencies by the Attorney General and the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security to suppress First Amendment protected activities in Washington, DC, Portland, and other communities across the United States'.

President Donald Trump has decried the demonstrations, and Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf blasted the protesters as 'lawless anarchists' in a visit to the city last Thursday.











We are trying to help Portland, not hurt it,' Trump tweeted Sunday. 'Their leadership has, for months, lost control of the anarchists and agitators. They are missing in action.

'We must protect Federal property, AND OUR PEOPLE. These were not merely protesters, these are the real deal!'

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Attorney General William Barr and Wolf are working on measures the administration can take to counter the unrest.

'You'll see something rolled out this week as we start to go in and make sure that the communities, whether it's Chicago or Portland, or Milwaukee, or someplace across the heartland of the country, we need to make sure our communities are safe,' Meadows said on Sunday Morning Futures.

The announcement is expected to expand a new Justice Department initiative that sends federal law enforcement into cities facing protests.











Late Saturday, Portland police declared demonstrations near the federal courthouse a riot after saying protesters broke into the Portland Police Association building and started a fire.

Dumpster fires were also set and fencing was moved and made into barricades, police said.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum sued Homeland Security and the Marshals Service in federal court late Friday.

The complaint said unidentified federal agents have grabbed people off Portland's streets 'without warning or explanation, without a warrant, and without providing any way to determine who is directing this action'.

Rosenblum said she was seeking a temporary restraining order to 'immediately stop federal authorities from unlawfully detaining Oregonians'.

It's unclear whether anyone was arrested or detained during the protest Sunday night.

DHS pejoratively calls the mobs "violent anarchists", which I have removed from this list.

When considering "who did what", I look at who was in a defensive position and who was attempting to advance.

It seems to me that mostly law enforcement was in a defensive position, protecting courthouses and other public property.

‘They just started whaling on me’: Veteran speaks out after video of federal officers beating him at Portland protests goes viral
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/portland-protests-tr
ump-veteran-christopher-david-federal-officers-oregon-a9627466.html?utm_source=reddit.com


“It was just chaos,” Mr David said about the moment. “That is when I wanted to walk over to them and talk to them because they were not adhering to their oath of office.”

“Were any of you enlisted? Why are you not keeping your oath of office?” Mr David shouted at the officers over the noise of the crowd.

The moment was described as chaotic from Mr David because the officers were already taking “aggressive” and “crazy” action against protesters within minutes of leaving the courthouse.

“There didn’t seem to be any design, or strategy, or plan to what they were doing,” he said. “It was bizarre. It almost looked like they were scared.”

Footage then showed Mr David standing still in front of the officers with his hands down at his side. He was carrying nothing in his hands and only had a backpack on him holding his ID and wallet.

One officer then started beating him with a baton when another sprayed pepper spray in his eyes, which encouraged the man to finally step away from the federal agents and move back towards the crowd.

doxed members of federal law enforcement
attempted to damage the Hatfield Courthouse by throwing objects at it and spray painting it. Numerous fireworks were also lit. trespassed on federal property and destroyed a card reader at the Justice Center.

That's where the list ends.

As you can see, the actions escalated from vandalism against court buildings and other public property to attacks on law enforcement, construction crews, and airplane pilots.

DHS pejoratively calls the mobs "violent anarchists", which I have removed from this list.

When considering "who did what", I look at who was in a defensive position and who was attempting to advance.

It seems to me that mostly law enforcement was in a defensive position, protecting courthouses and other public property.

DHS has been taken over by Trump's fascist hordes. They are paid liars. Nothing they say can be trusted.

You keep licking those boots, comrade. It's what you're paid to do.
