Federal troops were deployed to Portland, in its seventh week of nightly riots. An Antifa/ BLM mercenary from Texas, Jacob Michael Gaines, was charged with assaulting a federal officer. Mercenaries broke into the police union’s headquarters and set it on fire while others attacked the courthouse. Federal troops are using tear gas and are making arrests. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler says President Trump is using Portland for political gain and is endangering people because the troops are escalating tension. Governor Kate Brown demanded that the federal troops withdraw.

The US Attorney for the Oregon District requested an investigation of masked, camouflaged federal officials without identification badges who are arresting rioters in Portland. The agents are unidentified because the mercenaries have target officers and their families. Department of Homeland Security personnel were video recorded arresting rioters and putting them in unmarked SUVs. US Customs and Border Protection admitted to being one of the agencies involved. The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon sued Homeland Security over the arrests. -GEG

The US Attorney for the Oregon District on Friday requested an investigation into masked, camouflaged federal authorities without identification badges who are arresting protesters in Portland.

The request is aimed specifically at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel who have been captured on various videos arresting protesters and putting them in unmarked SUVs.

Demonstrators in Portland have been protesting racial inequality and police brutality for the last 50 nights, US Attorney Billy J. Williams said in a statement. Federal authorities have protected the Mark O. Hatfield US Courthouse and, at times, interaction between protesters and law enforcement has gotten violent. Last weekend, one protester was seriously injured after the man was shot in the head with impact munition.

Oregon’s governor and Portland’s mayor demanded the troops be withdrawn and a US senator joined them in condemning the arrests.

“Authoritarian governments, not democratic republics, send unmarked authorities after protesters,” tweeted US Sen. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat representing Oregon.

Merkley also tweeted one video of such an arrest showing two masked, camouflaged individuals with generic “police” patches, detain a person dressed in a black outfit and place them in an unmarked van before driving away.

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) admitted to being one of the agencies involved in arresting protesters.

Kate Brown is a rogue communist and the Attorney General is in her pocket. Multiple corruption charges covered up by our AG and two recalls squached by the AG as well. The law suits are no surprise to me, the law suits just codify that these poloticians are rogue sedisiouse traitors.

I know most of Portlanders to be wonderful artsy and quirky folks not what is being depicted on the rioting we see on TV newscasts.
It has been my feeling for a long time that the rioters are not Portlanders but others coming to Portland from who knows where and there is always the possibllity that Trump is facillitating there presence in this wonderful weird but loveable city.
