Oregon Proposes Bill Allowing Government to Seize Private Property in an ‘Emergency’

The Oregon House of Representatives introduced House Bill 2238 that would grant the governor power that essentially amounts to martial law in the state under a declared emergency, which includes seizure of property. Potential targets for seizure could include hospitals, housing, non-compliant businesses, and perhaps even privately-owned firearms.

The bill states that when the governor declares a state of emergency, he or she may issue, amend and enforce rules and orders to: “Control, restrict, and regulate by rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibitions on shipments, price fixing, allocation or other means, the use, sale, and distribution of food, feed, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, and services” and to “Take any other action, including through the seizure, use or possession of any real or personal property, that may be necessary for the management of resources following an emergency.”

Oregon’s Democrat Governor Kate Brown defended Antifa and Black Lives Matter militants attempting to burn down a federal courthouse last summer and she recently extended Emergency Orders to remain in control. The United States of America was founded upon the protection of life, liberty, and property, and the very thought that the government could unilaterally seize one’s property ought terrify every American.

The Oregon state legislature is currently considering a bill which would allow for the Governor to seize, use, or possess any private property during a state of emergency.

HB-2238 is supposedly meant to clarify the “Governor’s authority to use property during an emergency.” There are already provisions in place to allow for limited use of private property by the state government, but this bill seeks to drastically expand these. As proposed in HB-2238,

“Whenever the Governor has declared a state of emergency, the Governor may issue, amend and enforce rules and orders to:
1) Control, restrict and regulate by rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibitions on shipments, price fixing, allocation or other means, the use, sale or distribution of food, feed, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, goods and services;
2) Prescribe and direct activities in connection with use, conservation, salvage and prevention of waste of materials, services and facilities, including, but not limited to, production, transportation, power and communication facilities training, and supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs; and
3) Take any other action, including through the seizure, use or possession of any real or personal property…”

The Oregon governor would be allowed to take part in “rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibition on shipments, price fixing, allocation…” She would also be allowed to “Prescribe and direct activities in connection with… supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs.” When it comes down to it, this bill would allow the Governor broad discretion in what to seize, when to seize it, and how to use it.

Governor Brown has continually declared a State of Emergency in order to justify her use of executive orders. In fact, she recently extended the State of Emergency again, through March of 2021. Governor Brown has also allegedly used mob-like strongarm tactics on businesses that don’t comply with her orders. Given this history, one finds it entirely possible for her to declare a state of emergency in order to take control of any private property she wishes. Potential targets could include hospitals, housing, non-compliant businesses, and perhaps even privately-owned firearms.

Trump Tweets that Reports of His Intent to Declare Martial Law Are Fake News

According to a CNN report, President Trump is considering invoking martial law over efforts to subvert the 2020 presidential election. He held a meeting in the Oval Office with attorney Sidney Powell – who recently suggested implementing military tribunals – and with General Michael Flynn – who reportedly suggested declaring martial law. Some of the people in the meeting objected to the proposal of appointing Powell as General Counsel to investigate voter-fraud allegations.

Trump and his associates have filed a number court cases against election fraud in battleground states, and all but a few have been thrown out without hearing the evidence. The lawsuit filed in Texas was joined by 20 other states and was a vehicle for Republicans across the country to contest the 2020 election results, but it was thrown out by the Supreme Court. Critics say the justices were afraid of catalyzing riots. A new report indicates that the Supreme Court will not even consider hearing the Trump campaign’s Pennsylvania case until after the January 6 Electoral College confirmation. On this date, there could be another challenge to the election if there is a full Congressional hearing, and Vice President Pence could cast a tie-breaking vote that would trigger a contingent election. Trump is also considering invoking his 2018 executive order that was drafted to combat foreign election interference. if Trump does decide to declare martial law, it could set a terrifying precedent. -GEG

National File has learned that the Supreme Court will not even consider hearing the Trump campaign’s Pennsylvania case until after the January 6 Electoral College confirmation.

Attorney David Carroll, who filed an amicus brief alongside attorneys representing President Donald Trump in the state of Pennsylvania, tells National File that the Supreme Court docket indicates the court will not consider whether to hear President Trump’s case in Pennsylvania until after the January 6 deadline.

“As I understand the entry,” Carroll told National File, “The Supremes won’t even consider the Pennsylvania case until after the electoral votes are counted (and debated) on January 6.”

This underscores the potential importance of the Electoral College battle currently being planned by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who is also working on a related letter calling for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to launch an immediate Congressional hearing into election integrity. Thus far, Brooks is joined by 18 other Republican House Representatives in his letter.

Many of these Republicans have also indicated they will back Brooks’ objections on January 6. If one Senate Republican joins Brooks’ objection during the January 6 joint session of Congress, presided by Vice President Mike Pence, then both legislative bodies will break to examine any evidence suggesting individual states should be disqualified.

The US Supreme Court Rejected the Lawsuit from Texas Challenging the Election, and Biden Won the Electoral Vote, But Trump Still Has Options to Reverse Everything

On Friday, the Supreme Court decided that Texas “lacked standing” to challenge the elections in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin under Article 3 of the US Constitution. In this way, the Court essentially side stepped the issue. However, if Trump is able to present evidence of election fraud to the Supreme Court, and if the Court acknowledges that evidence, there is the possibility that Biden would be disqualified, and Trump would serve a second term.

The contested election is not over. Several states sent Republican Electors to cast alternate votes. Vice President Pence will have full authority as president of the Senate on January 6, the day the Electoral votes are officially counted, and he will accept or reject motions to decide the next steps. If that happens, President Trump could be reelected by Congress because each state represented in the House is allowed only one vote, and the majority of state delegations are Republican.

In another scenario, litigation in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Arizona may result in more Electoral votes for Trump, who has 232 votes at this time.

Finally, Trump signed an executive order giving himself power to invoke the Insurrection Act, which amounts to martial law, if there was foreign interference in the election. The fact that the presidential votes were counted by machines outside the United States and operated by non-US companies is sufficient basis for the claim of foreign interference. -GEG

Attorney Lin Wood Calls for Trump to Declare Martial Law over Election Fraud

Attorney Lin Wood tweeted a press release from We The People Convention that read, “WTPC Calls for President to Invoke Limited Martial Law to Hold New Election, in Full Page Washington Times Ad, if Legislators, Courts and Congress Do Not Follow the Constitution.” and he added that @realDonaldTrump should declare martial law. Attorney Sidney Powell retweeted a meme calling for suspension of the Electoral College and setting up military tribunals to investigate election fraud. -GEG

The We The People Convention published a full page ad in the Washington Times on Tuesday calling on President Donald Trump to take extreme actions to correct controversial election results. Wood even suggested President Trump hold a new election if the US Courts and Congress do not follow the US Constitution.

Attorney Lin Wood tweeted this out today.

“Our country is headed to civil war. A war created by 3rd party bad actors for their benefit – not for We The People.

Communist China is leading the nefarious efforts to take away our freedom.

@realDonaldTrump should declare martial law.”

Portland Antifa Terrorized Residents and Businesses on Election Night. National Guard Has Been Called.

On Election Night, about 300 BLM-Antifa shut down residential areas of SE Portland. They had a motor blockade & people on bikes who blocked nearby streets. Their armed security team included those with semi-auto rifles, shotguns, bats and more. They vandalized businesses, a Catholic church was targeted and they harassed people at their homes. The crowd demanded the abolition of police. Portland-based Antifa group Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front announced the mob’s plans for Wednesday night’s terror. “Whoever they vote for, we are ungovernable.” They called for death to America.

The rioting has continued. One of the large banners carried by those in the crowd read, “We don’t want Biden—we want revenge!” Police were hit with glass projectiles and at least one explosive mortar.

Oregon and Portland leaders’ refusal to enforce the law escalates the problem.

Governor Kate Brown issued an executive order allowing multiple agencies, the Oregon State Police, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and the Portland Police Bureau, to make a unified response to election-related riots through Friday. Despite the order, the National Guard was dispatched on Wednesday evening to quell violence that had erupted in the city center. Calling the National Guard is an indication that martial law is the goal.

The Oregon National Guard was activated the day after the election when a marauding mob of militant Antifa smashed up businesses, property and a church in downtown Portland.

Shortly before 7 pm, a crowd of around 100 black bloc Antifa turned violent after marching for several hours around downtown. The previous night, Antifa group Youth Liberation Front announced the planned direct action to protest the election.

“F— Trump, f— Biden, death to America! We want something better than this trash, and we’re going to take it,” tweeted the YLF along with a flyer for the event.

Carrying flags with symbols of Antifa and anarchism, the crowd began breaking windows one-by-one along West Burnside Street in a march of terror. One of the properties targeted was the Saint Andre Bessette Church, a Catholic church in the heart of downtown that provides shelter and services to the city’s large homeless population.

Rioters largely prevented the press from recording but some video clips posted on Twitter by local reporters show them smashing windows of dozens of businesses using hammers and other tools. One of the large banners carried by those in the crowd read, “We don’t want Biden—we want revenge!”

The Multnomah County Sherrif’s Office declared a riot over social media and loudspeakers before officers from multiple agencies rushed the streets in numbers. They were hit with glass projectiles and at least one explosive mortar.

New Hampshire: Trump Supporters Receive Letters Threatening to Burn Down Their Homes

Trump supporters in Milford and Brookline, New Hampshire, received letters threatening to burn down their homes if Trump refuses to concede the election, writing, “Your address has been added into our database as a target for when we attack should Trump not concede the election.” The homeowners who received the threatening letters displayed Trump 2020 signs on their yards. [Let’s think strategic. Is it possible that threats such as this are designed, not to win votes for Biden but for Trump? If martial law is the end game for the Deep State, and if riots are needed to justify martial law, then a Trump victory is the only way to make rioting plausible. If Biden were to win the election, Trump Supporters would not riot. However, if Trump should win, the Communist Left will unleash massive terror in the streets, which would be the signal for Trump to declare martial law “to save America”, and his supporters would embrace it with enthusiasm. The perfect ploy – and the end of liberty with virtually no dissenting voice.] -GEG

President Trump supporters in two small New England towns have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

Police in Milford, New Hampshire, said they’re working to track down the culprits who mailed the letters to several Trump supporters in the small town, while cops in nearby Brookline reported that at least two residents there have also gotten the threatening correspondence, WMUR-TV reported.

“I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” Brookline Police Chief Bill Quigley told the outlet.

“Dear neighbors,” the letters read. “You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter.”

“Your address has been added into our database as a target for when we attack should Trump not concede the election,” it goes on. “We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage.”

Occult Ritual in Boston as Antifa Member Eats a Heart


Boston: Video shows an Antifa group gathered in the middle of a street yelling and shrieking as a member reportedly sucked the blood out of a heart meant to symbolize that of President Trump. Others in the group chanted and praised the god of chaos during the display, indicating that the left is involved in the occult. [Is this activity designed to attract votes for Biden or Trump? Please read the comments at the end of the next article about Antifa threatening to burn down homes.] -GEG

Warning: graphic video:

AntiFa radicals conducted what can only be described as an occult-style ritual on the streets of Boston, Massachusetts this weekend as members of the group burned American flags and ate a bloody heart symbolic of President Trump while countering a protest against left-wing political violence also held in the city.

Video of the bizarre scene posted to Twitter by user Al The Great (@realAlTheGreat), shows a group of sign and bullhorn-wielding AntiFa members gathered in the middle of a Boston city street letting out exaggerated yells and shrieks as a member of the group begins to suck the blood out of a purported heart meant to symbolize that of President Trump.

As an American flag burns beneath the feet of the heart-eating AntiFa member, he falls to his knees and rips the heart in half, reveling as blood explodes onto his face amidst shouts of “I’m on fire!” before another member appeals through a bullhorn, “to the chaos goddess, hear our cries.”

After rolling around on the ground in ecstasy, the heart-eater is joined by fellow AntiFa radicals in chants of “praise to the chaos god” and “F*** Trump” while running laps around a smoldering American flag.

Two Catholic Churches in San Diego Vandalized with Bizarre Messages

Two Catholic churches in San Diego were vandalized over the weekend. The graffiti messages that were spray painted on the walls and grounds included upside down crosses, pentagrams, BLM, Biden 2020, White Power, and Swastikas. The symbols represent conflicting messages. Surveillance video shows that the vandals were dressed in the standard black hoodies that is standard uniform for professional mercenaries associated with Antifa. Ironically, the conflicting symbols suggest that the perpetrators had no personal connection to their meaning. Over the past few weeks, the heads of the FBI and Department of Homeland Security have said that, while BLM and Antifa burn down buildings and commit violence, nevertheless, white supremacists are the biggest danger in America. [It is increasingly obvious that most if not all the violence and vandalism happening in America is theater to condition the minds of television viewers to believe their world is crumbling and that they must accept martial law and totalitarian government as the only way to restore tranquility. In reality, they are being led into slavery in the name of security.] GEG

San Diego county sheriffs are investigating acts of vandalism at two Catholic churches in El Cajon.

Two churches in the El Cajon area were vandalized overnight with images of swastikas and other graffiti.

Saint Peters Chaldean Catholic Cathedral, 1627 Jamacha Way, was vandalized with spray-painted images of swastikas and political images, said Sgt. Michael Hettinger of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Father Daniel Chaba of St. Peter’s Chaldean Cathedral received the call of the incident around 8 a.m. Saturday.

The front walls of the church were covered in graffiti and politically charged statements.

“I was disappointed, hurt,” Father Chaba said, “we saw upside down crosses, we saw pentagrams, we saw BLM, we saw white power, we saw swastikas, we saw Biden 2020.”

Deputies from the Rancho San Diego Station were alerted to the vandalism Saturday morning.

Roger Stone to Alex Jones: To Avoid Losing the Election, Trump Must Declare Martial Law

Roger Stone called into the Alex Jones’ show last week and said that, if the Democrats try to steal the election, Trump should seize total power via martial law and jail prominent figures including the Clintons and Mark Zuckerberg. The Insurrection Act of 1807 allows the president to use federal troops to enforce federal law. In a recent interview, Trump told Fox News he would happily “put down” any left wing protests. However, when he sent federal agents to confront protesters in Portland, Oregon, he removed them as soon as the news coverage was past. The violence has continued and escalated. Trump said there would be a “backlash” from the political right over the BLM Antifa riots. [He was right, of course, as any grade-school child could foresee. Why would street-wise, experienced politicians heading the Democrat Party do such a stupid thing as to side with open Communism and encourage violence and destruction knowing it will create a backlash of support for Trump? Could it be that the Deep State wants Trump to call in martial law, thereby neutralizing his staunch supporters who passionately support him? Why does the pro-martial-law lobby talk about arresting the Clintons but never Soros or Obama? They will never arrest any of them, of course, but why does the rhetoric speak of the lesser operatives and ignore the higher operatives?] -GEG

Roger Stone, whose 40-month prison sentence for lying to Congress and witness tampering in the Russia investigation was commuted by Donald Trump, has said Trump should seize total power and jail prominent figures including Bill and Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg if he loses to Joe Biden in November.

Stone was sentenced in part for lying about contacts with WikiLeaks during the 2016 election regarding emails hacked from Democratic party accounts. In turn, special counsel Robert Mueller and the Senate intelligence committee suspected Trump lied when he said he could not recall discussing the leaks with Stone.

Stone did not turn on the president. He had his sentence reduced on the recommendation of attorney general William Barr but he still faced prison before Trump acted. His conviction stands.

Both men were in Nevada on Saturday, Trump holding campaign events while Stone sought to raise money for himself.

Citing widely debunked claims of fraud around early voting, absentee balloting and voting by mail, Stone told Jones Trump should consider invoking the Insurrection Act and arresting the Clintons, former Senate majority leader Harry Reid, Zuckerberg, Tim Cook of Apple and “anybody else who can be proven to be involved in illegal activity”.

He also said: “The ballots in Nevada on election night should be seized by federal marshals and taken from the state. They are completely corrupted. No votes should be counted from the state of Nevada if that turns out to be the provable case. Send federal marshals to the Clark county board of elections, Mr President!”

Nevada has not gone to a Republican since 2004 but is shaping up to be a crucial contest this year. Biden leads there, but polls have tightened. On Saturday, after a planned rally in Reno was cancelled because of coronavirus restrictions, Trump staged an event which disregarded such strictures in Minden. His rhetoric was not far removed from that of the man he spared prison.

Attacking the Democratic Nevada governor, Steve Sisolak, Trump said: “This is the guy we are entrusting with millions of ballots, unsolicited ballots, and we’re supposed to win these states. Who the hell is going to trust him? The only way the Democrats can win the election is if they rig it.”

Stone said: “Governor Sisolak is a punk. He should not face down the president of the United States.”

Black Lives Matter & Antifa Terrorize Small Minnesota Town

Dozens of Black Lives Matter mercenaries invaded the Twin-Cities suburb of Hugo, Minnesota to intimidate the family and neighbors of Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis police union. One leader of the aggressors was Democrat politician John Thompson, who recently won the primary for a Democrat seat in the Minnesota House and was endorsed by Governor Walz. Thompson shrieked obscenities and threatened locals with burning down the town saying, “I didn’t come here to be peaceful.”

[Americans by now must be aware of a common scenario: Politicians and law-enforcement officials stand down and do nothing to interfere with violent professional mercenaries as they destroy property and threaten lives. Even though everyone knows that many of these politicians and strike forces are financed by George Soros, no one in government, local or national, does anything to put him out of business. The destroyers seldom face serious penalties, but their victims are prosecuted for defending themselves. Conclusion: There are not two sides in this conflict. Both sides are serving the same master who wants escalation of violence to the point where the population will beg for martial law. How else can you trick Americans to gratefully accept their own enslavement?] -GEG

Dozens of Black Lives Matter “activists” invaded the Twin Cities suburb of Hugo, Minnesota on Saturday afternoon.

The “protest” was meant to intimidate the family and neighbors of Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis police union.

One leader of the demonstration was Democratic politician John Thompson, who recently won the primary for a safely Democratic seat in the Minnesota House. Thompson shrieked obscenities at community members, declaring that the “f***ing Grand Wizard [of the Ku Klux Klan]” lived in the town:

At another point in his tirade, Thompson threatened the locals, screaming “You think we give a fuck about burning Hugo down?” and “I didn’t come here to be peaceful.” He also said that “blue lives [i.e. police] don’t mean shit to black people.”

Click here for video of John Thompson — language warning

Thompson was recently endorsed by Minnesota governor Tim Walz, who said “His fierce advocacy and commitment to his community is exactly what’s needed in the state legislature right now.”

Thompson’s behavior would seem to run afoul of Minnesota’s law against disturbing the peace, which among other things prohibits “Inciting violence by using offensive language in public or by shouting.”

The Antifa organization Unicorn Riot, which previously livestreamed (and celebrated) the destruction of the Third Precinct in Minneapolis, was on hand to livestream the event.

Unicorn Riot, arguably a domestic terrorist media publication, previously participated in the burning and looting of the third precinct police headquarters in Minneapolis. The third precinct building was burned down to the ground.

Portland Mayor Accuses Rioters of ‘Attempting To Commit Murder’

Last Thursday, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler condemned rioters who tried to torch a police precinct after blocking the exits while officers were still inside. He said: “When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building occupied by people you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder.” Three weeks ago, Wheeler was sprayed with tear gas as he stood with the protesters and rioters who opposed federal agents that were sent to break up the violence. Now he says the rioters’ violence will be good for “creating B-roll film” to be used in President Trump’s reelection campaign ads. [We have long argued that this is precisely what they are intended to do. Unfortunately, too few people have considered the possibility that Trump is the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law. That IS the end game of the deep state. Today’s violence and burning and sheer insanity could well be an essential part of that plan so Mr. Trump will be perceived as a man who stands against it all and who would never pull the plug on freedom – until the frightened voters plead with him to do so. Look up the definition of ‘controlled opposition’ and read it twice.] -GEG

Three weeks ago, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was standing shoulder to shoulder with angry protesters, gagging on tear gas in a show of solidarity against federal agents sent there to restore order.

Now, the federal agents are gone as Wheeler’s city continues to spiral out of control.

On Thursday evening, Wheeler condemned rioters who tried to torch a police precinct after blocking the exits while officers were still inside, according to Fox News.

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,” said Wheeler in a joint press conference with Police Chief Chuck Lovell.

“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,” he added. “You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

On Wednesday, a riot was declared after protesters swarmed the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct Building – breaking glass doors, lighting a fire using an accelerant, throwing fireworks and other objects at officers, and spray-painting over security cameras. According to the report, someone in a truck also tried to run over police officers.

The front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside, police said, according to FOX 12.

Officers used tear gas to disperse the rioters and at least eight people were arrested. A federal court order bars police from using tear gas unless a riot is declared.

I believe that city staff could have died last night,” Wheeler said. “I cannot and I will not tolerate that. This is not peaceful protests. This is not advocacy to advance reforms.” –Fox News

“If you are a nonviolent demonstrator and you don’t want to be part of intentional violence, please stay away from these areas,” said Wheeler. “Our community must say that this violence is not Portland, that these actions do not reflect our values and these crimes are distracting from reform, not advancing.”

Riots Continue in Seattle But Federal Forces Sent Home Anyway

Seattle: Four to five thousand people protested peacefully on Saturday until a mob of about 1,500 broke away and the professional agitators set fires and faced off against law enforcement officers, assaulting them and hurling explosives at them. 59 officers were injured and 47 rioters were arrested. On Friday before the riot, Seattle Chief of Police Carmen Best advised her city’s business owners and residents that local police will not “risk their personal safety to protect property”. This apparently was motivated by a ban issued by the city council of against the use of tear gas and pepper spray to disperse rioters.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan blamed the violence on Trump and the federal forces, despite the destruction, murders and violence that occured before thew Feds arrived. She said the federal agents were a ‘dry run’ for martial law. Local governments in Democrat cities across the US are failing to enforce the law, leading to destruction and mayhem. Federal agents with the US Department of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol Tactical Unit have demobilized and left the Seattle area. {So now we see the spectacle of both local and federal governments deliberately allowing the rioters to operate. Why would they do that? We think it is because they are following a larger plan to make things so frightening that the American people will plead for martial law to “save” them. Yes, people in high places want martial law to oversee their end game of extinguishing the last spark of freedom in America. If they really wanted to stop the riots and destruction, all they would have to do is stop the funding from George Soros and let the police do their job.] -GEG

The Seattle Police Department declared a riot and arrested 45 people after “explosives” were thrown at officers when a protest turned violent in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood on Saturday.

FOX 10 reports:

Up to 1,000 protesters gathered about 2 p.m. Saturday for a peaceful march in solidarity with unrest and violent demonstrations in Portland. By 4 p.m., crowds had broken away from the protest, setting fires to construction trailers at the Juvenile Detention Center and attacking camera crews. […]

Police reported multiple explosions in the area and multiple fires, including one inside the East Precinct, where rioters breached a security fence to vandalize the building. Police are investigating “possible explosive damage” to the walls of the East Precinct and more explosives being thrown at police.

Seattle police said the protesters were arrested for assaults on officers, obstruction, and failure to disperse. Prior to announcing the arrests, police shared a photo of flammable objects being hurled at officers.
