    Oregon Governor Declares Victory Over Feds, DHS Says We’re Not Going Anywhere Yet

    Oregon Governor Declares Victory Over Feds, DHS Says We’re Not Going Anywhere Yet

    DHS needs assurance that nothing will happen to federal property.
    Listen to this article

    The Democrats and leftists will no doubt claim victory after Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tweeted that federal agents will leave Portland starting tomorrow.

    Department of Homeland Security Security Chad Wolf brought it down a notch or two.

    Brown tweeted:

    From The Washington Examiner:

    But a statement from acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf offers no timeline and suggests that the drawdown process will not be immediate.

    “The Department will continue to maintain our current, augmented federal law enforcement personnel in Portland until we are assured that the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and other federal properties will no longer be attacked and that the seat of justice in Portland will remain secure,” Wolf said.

    He also said:

    Wolf said he and Brown had agreed to a joint plan to end “violent activity” in the city aimed at federal buildings.

    “State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months,” Wolf said in the statement.

    “Oregon State Police will coordinate with Federal Protective Service (FPS) officers to ensure all federal facilities remain protected and secure,” he added.

    Portland has been a mess for weeks. For 62 nights in a row, people have attacked federal property, federal agents, vandalized buildings, etc. The destruction only comes at night.

    Byron York noted that Brown did not mention the federal courthouse. I blogged on Monday about an AP reporter’s experience in the courthouse with the federal agents.

    The agents did not respond until the rioters attacked the building.

    Rioters pointed green lasers at the agents inside the courthouse, causing visual problems and some blindness.

    They tried to saw through the fence. Others threw “rocks, cans of beans, wattle bottles, potatoes and rubber bouncy balls.” Here’s more:

    The firework came whizzing over the fence so fast that the agent didn’t have time to move.

    It exploded with a boom, leaving his hearing deadened and bloody gashes on both forearms. Stunned, with help from his cohorts, he stripped to his boxer shorts and a black T-shirt so his wounds could be examined and photographed for evidence.

    He told his fellow agents he was more worried about his hearing than about the gouges and burns on his arms.

    By the end of the night, five other federal agents would be injured, including another who got a concussion when he was hit in the head with a commercial-grade firework. One agent was hospitalized. Several agents have lingering vision problems from the lasers.

    After each night of protest, they seize dozens of homemade shields, slingshots, blocks of wood and chunks of concrete.

    “My friends have been hit in the head with hammers. I know people who have been shot with fireworks. It’s disgusting,” said the Deputy U.S. Marshal who’s been at the courthouse for weeks. “I’ve never thought I’d have to walk around in my office building wearing a gas mask to go sit in front of my computer.”

    The agents fear for their lives. Remember, the agents do not use tear gas or react unless rioters attack them first.

    alohahola mentioned (if I read him right) how stupid it is to resort to violence. Apparently I have a face that drunks just want to hit. And there are a lot of drunks in this world. Which is why I don’t go to bars anymore. If I’m going to drink I’ll do it at home where it’s safe. Or a friend’s home.

    If anyone thinks I’m bragging about how tough I am, or was, you couldn’t be more wrong. But I’ve been in a lot of fights and I tried to avoid all of them. You never know who the other guy is, what kind of training or experience he (or she) has or if when they are on the verge of losing they’re going to pull a knife or a gun.

    Probably the ugliest fight I had was against a woman. And note I don’t refer to her as a lady. I was clerking in a grocery store and she walked in with an empty tote bag, flat against her side, and tried to walk out with a bulging bag. She wasn’t stealing because she was hungry. She only took the most expensive items. Coffee, canned hams, tequila. So I took it away from her.

    She came back and called me a bitch and she was going to cut me up. I forgot exactly what words I used but it was along the lines of go fuck yourself. So she picked me up and slammed me against the wall. At that point I figured chivalry was out the window and I kicked her as.

    I don’t take being called a bitch well.

    So after I left the hospital because she chewed on my shoulder and I needed a tetanus shot I was like, never again. I was only 16 but I realized that while I was perfectly capable of beating her I could have died of the infection. Which hardly solves the problem.

    Like I mentioned, you just never know what the other person is willing and capable of doing to win or just survive the fight.

    But I’m still no one’s bitch.

    When protestors cross the line which includes acts of sedition and/or disrupting the lives of other innocent people, blocking their movement, violent acts, or stopping them from accomplishing their jobs or purpose, blocking their speech, and/or unnecessarily interfering with the activities of their environment, or smear tactics, then they are violating their Constitutional rights, 1st amendment rights, breaking existing laws, and need to be brought to justice. Protesting has its limits and place. These protests are not spontaneous and are organized activities by outside domestic terrorist groups. Many are paid by George Soros, BLM, Antifa, and related extreme liberal groups ( Obama). Those who incite and/or fund riots/looting/arson (George Soros) need to be arrested for being an accomplice and/or sedition. They need to account and pay for the damage they create including costs created by obfuscation. Rioters and looters/arsonists should be placed on notice that they can/will be shot! Likewise any rioter/looter/arsonist arrested who lives outside of the immediate area does not have a “dog in the fight” and deserves an additional citation for being a paid rioter/looter and face felony charges. It is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting. Those rioters/arsonists arrested need to have a criminal/outstanding warrant background check, students need to be expelled, and all face loss of any government subsistence. Unmasking and disarming protestors of weapons should be enforced and Mayors, governors, government officials allowing out of control riots or preventing the police from doing their jobs should be arrested and held accountable.
    I hate the probable fact that the real issue is we have a segment of our society that feels destroying other people’s lives when they face adversity is justified.
