Democrats Exult That They've Driven the American Government Out of Insurrectionist States

I don't know if this agreement included a guarantee that Portland cops would protect the federal courthouse, or if we're just bugging out.

Either way, the Democrat Taliban is doing victory laps over having beaten America.

Cities and states are in a state of violent insurrection, and the neocon nevertrumpers think this can all be put back together with some Free Trade (and Open Borders) Propaganda.

Yes, once the left has been given its appetizer, it will pursue a course of moderation and step away from the dining table.

Right, geniuses?

Update: From Fox, I get the impression that Oregon will supposedly deploy its state police -- those not under Terrorist Ted Wheeler's direction -- to impose order on the "Protests" and maybe guard the courthouse.

Supposedly.

This is like asking the Taliban to guard Al Qaeda.


Trump: We're not leaving until they secure their own city.

29 There's a military axiom that the weapon you use this year will be used against you by your enemies next year.

I've never been completely comfortable with the plainclothes 'grab them off the street' style of enforcement, in spite of enjoying the recent outcomes. Trump's reelection is anything but assured, and I cringe at the idea of social justice enforcers grabbing people off the street for their perceived 'racism'.

In that regard I'd be much more comfortable with Uniformed Military taking up positions in Portland and Seattle. You know who they are, and what they're about. They could suppress these riots with live fire for all of me, and I wouldn't break a sweat.

But I don't want President Kamala (or whomever) to have the use of this particular tool.

If she is sending away the supposed reason for the violence -- federal agents -- then why does she need to send police officers to "keep the peace"? "Keep the peace" from what?

It's time for bold action to reform police practices.

So she's using police to "keep the peace", even though she still sees them as racist and in need of reform?

Um... logic? Not seeing any.

Oh wait, that's right, the left's new narrative is that prior to the feds stepping in, all the violence was caused by NAZIs and white supremacists.

We live in stupid times...

97 I love how the left views this as success, when, in actuality, it signals the failure of the local government to protect the citizens, properties, and ideals entrusted to its care.

Given that the governor is cut from similar cloth, I worry that we will have more of same. I suppose it will depend on how badly the state police are hamstrung in their control measures.

98 As much as I'd like to see Trump bust heads here I think this is the right call.

The stupid leftists and Democrats (including Pelosi and Schumer) are pushing the "Trumps Stormtrooper" narrative which is a blatant and dangerous lie as part of the "Trumps a fascist" lie.

Pulling the marshals out - A> Gets them out of harms way, B> prevents the marxists from trying to incite a false flag
C> Shows that Trump isn't a dictator.

What happens next? if Oregon fails to defend the courthouse the press will HAVE TO REPORT IT - because that shows "love wins". Otherwise its not a victory for them because the dems can't gloat.

This confirms that the marxists ARE being violent and the revolution will have to be televised.

Secondly Trump has perfect optics to move the feds back in to other cities because of what Portland did.

On the other hand - the fed buildings stand. Trump still wins and the rioters continue to consume their own for George Floyd and the Dems take all the blame. "Love wins"

Short term it's a win, long term? We still need to bust heads - but we won't win this with a short battle - we've got to take back the schools, destroy cancel culture, restore freedom of speech in this country and the rule of law and the GOP seriously needs to either grow a pair or get out of the way for new blood or we need a new political party that will stand up for the constitution and the Republic.

God Bless America.

There was also mention yesterday of federal agents remaining inside the courthouse and in exchange Portland agreeing to control the mob outside. Maybe that's what's happening.

102 Ah, so the idiot lied.

The analogy with embassies and host countries is pretty good.

Local law enforcement's job is to secure order in their area, including of course around federal properties.

If they don't do that, they're in violation of the normal arrangement - which really hasn't ever been an issue that I'm aware of, after you-know-when at least.

And US Marshals' main job is to secure the federal judicial process and institution, so of course they are doing so.

But I don't get it - are the local police now the good guys? I thought their gripe was against local police. I thought the social workers were the good guys. Maybe they will send case workers in to the streets with forms and debit cards to stop the rioters.

Seems to me the possibility of actual bloodshed among the rioters go up, when there are fewer feds surrounding the areas. If the feds only occupy the federal property, then when the breaches occur, real bullets will be used.

That might be the strategy here. Kate wants dead bodies, and riot control doesn't give her that.

154 The Marxist Socialist Bastards (MSB) mob just canceled America. The events in Portland are not riots; they are an asymmetrical guerrilla war and America just lost the first battle of what is effectively a civil war.

My experience with Portland is the population at best is some what to the left of Bernie Sander's politics and more typically is a ongoing Maoist struggle session. More to the point, there is growing identity, centered in Seattle and Portland, that they are no longer American and would be better off out of the country.

Capitulating to them is only going to reinforce notion. Voting isn't going to fix this. God help us if the MSB mob gets complete control of the Federal government in November.

I don't see any problems with Wolfe's statement. There's a Federal Courthouse in my town; normal order is for Judges to work there, for the FBI to have an office in the building with a few agents, along with a handful of Marshall's and associated security. Not that many people for the Feds, overall. What Wolfe was saying was that when the situation gets back to normal, we will go back to normal.

Trump doesn't even need an EO to deal with big tech. Forget about speech fairness, speech codes, equal time, or anything else. Those are slippery slopes right to hell.

Just direct the FTC to begin and expedite, with top institutional priority, antitrust actions against the tech monopolies and their mutual oligopolies. We need no new rules or laws or requirements. These firms are all in blatant antitrust violation. Break them up and blow them to pieces. There will be consequences. We can predict some of them, though not all of them. We'll learn.

327 "Sulla ordered some 1,500 nobles (i.e., senators and equites) executed, although it is estimated that as many as 9,000 people were killed. The purge went on for several months. Helping or sheltering a proscribed person was punishable by death, while killing a proscribed person was rewarded with two talents. Family members of the proscribed were not excluded from punishment, and slaves were not excluded from rewards. As a result, "husbands were butchered in the arms of their wives, sons in the arms of their mothers". The majority of the proscribed had not been enemies of Sulla, but instead were killed for their property, which was confiscated and auctioned off. The proceeds from auctioned property more than made up for the cost of rewarding those who killed the proscribed, filling the treasury. Possibly to protect himself from future political retribution, Sulla had the sons and grandsons of the proscribed banned from running for political office, a restriction not removed for over 30 years."

I've thought for a while that our sophisticated, time-consuming legal processes are not adequate for what's happening now.

384 I'm a little torn on this move. There are good people in Oregon who need someone to step up for them. However, the Feds sent there were only protecting Federal property as was their mandate.

It is a no win situation for the administration unless you look at it from an election perspective. Then, pulling out makes more sense. I suspect internal polling on the ground in Oregon is looking pretty good for the state to have a bit of a Red Tsunami....and just sticking around is going to create any number of scenarios for the media and the democrats to demonize their opposition.

So, let them turn it into a cesspool, and watch what happens at the voting booth. I don't necessarily like that mentality, but we can play the "ends justifies the means" game just as well as they can.

Posted by: Botched_Lobotomy at July 29, 2020 02:35 PM (lRrON)

401 What I am seeing is that the Democrats have belatedly realized that the ordinary Americans are noticing their support for the violence. Despite the ludicrous spin by Gov. Brown, I think that this agreement is a walkback by the Democrats. I noticed that Gov. Brown claims that ICS and Border Patrol agents are leaving, not the U.S. Marshals, who will presumably be staying to guard the courthouse. What this agreement represents is the Democrats cutting a deal to rein in their violence in exchange for removing some, but not all, of the officers guarding the courthouse. Tl;dr: Pelosi and Nadler finally realized that their B.S. isn't playing in Peoria.

Posted by: A Concerned Citizen at July 29, 2020 02:45 PM (ycPm7)

402 I don't see that there's necessarily a contradiction here. Conservatives have been complaining for years that the Department of Agriculture and dozens of other inappropriate federal agencies have their own SWAT teams and commandos, and Trump has cleverly used them to fight Antifa, since there are Constitutional issues with using the actual military and he can't trust the top guys at the Pentagon anyway.

I suspect what happened today is that the stupid mayor thinks all the feds defending the courthouse are ICE and Border Patrol, Pence promised her ICE and Border Patrol employees will be withdrawn, so she's happy. Antifa thinks so, too, so they will out in force tonight thinking there will be little or no resistance. In that case, they'll get their asses kicked by the US Marshals, Department of Agriculture, Department of Interior, and the other 48 agencies whose teams Pence did not promise to remove. Meanwhile the ICE and BP guys can take a day or two off on their way to kick ass in Chicago or Philadelphia or wherever.

You wouldn't think Mike Pence would be the good cop in a good cop-bad copy move, but in this case I think he is.

Posted by: Igotnothing at July 29, 2020 05:51 PM (QMG4P)

409 THe thing to note here is the agreement is between the State of Oregon and the Federal Government, not between Portland and the Federal Government. Originally, the Oregon governor apparently denied a request from the Mayor to assist Portland police (ie take the Mayor off the hook for not protecting the federal courthouse).

It is the State police who will be working with the Federal Government not the Portland Police. The Portland police will take their cues from the Governor via the State Police. The total number of federal officers will not decrease in Portland for now, only certain specific agencies will reduce their numbers. The purpose of this shell game is to protect the Courthouse and end the riots using the State Police as the lead instead of federal law enforcement as the lead. It is actually a loss for Wheeler and Antifa.

Finally, I am not a believer in coincidences. This agreement happens one day after the Dem's asinine treatment of the attorney general which even many democrats have criticized (i.e.. you may not eat lunch or use the restroom from Chairman Nadler). It also occurs one day after Joe Biden condemns violent protesters and says they should be jailed.

They dems agreed to this because they are losing, not winning the PR war.
