Apparently trump's private militia is kidnapping protestors.

Video from Portland, along with a snippet of the actions he is taking to attack cities which refused to turn over immigrants to ICE,......In other words, dictator moves.

1. This is beyond insupportable.

This is the act of a treasonous dictator.

33. Misuse of federal forces or calling them "Trump's PRIVATE militia?"

I'd agree to both. Trump doesn't have a "private" army. He's President of the United States, the executive who runs the executive branch. (Who all's doing is that?)

AS for this being some big, unreported secret, not exactly. We already knew when Trump alarmingly announced he was sending officers from the U.S. Marshals Service and DHS to Portland, nightly protests for weeks providing the excuse. We've known from daily reports that their presence was exacerbating, not quelling, the disturbances, and that local and state leaders have been calling for them to be removed, scaling up since shooting a protester in the head last weekend. Legal cases have been filed by both government agencies and civil rights groups.

Portland Public Broadcasting just reported this protester's story, and it's in the WaPo today.

Big secret. "Why isn't anyone talking about this."

At every election since the GOP was taken over by these people in the 1990s, every person who could vote has either voted Democrat to stop them or has empowered them by not doing so, and in this century our mistakes are having increasingly terrible consequences.

109 days to November 3.

2. This is someone who has been in Border Patrol and now is warning about them


She says that the same unidentifiable troops who attacked protestors at the WH, and now at the videos above, are BP.
She states they consider themselves Trump's personal army, and will not obey anyone but him.

Let that sink in for a moment.

realize these guys are ordered by trump and Barr, operate outside of the law, and we are paying for it.

7. the people posting these are saying MSM is not covering it


except for the fact trump is deploying them. Which is bad enough.

I am still looking for info on what happens to the arrested people.

I DO remember that during Bush jr's reign, Chicago PD was exposed for taking some arrested people, tossing them into cells in a non-descript building, with no official paperwork, no way to find them.
Apparently one guy who had been released found a reporter who connected with lawyers, and eventually it was in the headlines and disbanded.

15. There were a couple of things that happened to make me very very alert.


TSA was created just a couple of months after 9/11, and people submitted to body searches without much concern being voiced.( I refused to fly after that, I don't do public groping well)

Then Dept. of Homeland Security was created, in 2002. There WERE a lot of wtf reactions, from people who were old enough to know their history.

ICE/Border Patrol now routinely stop cars on I-10 to search them, sometimes confiscating cash from drivers. Routinely.On all the interstates, on the pretense of looking for illegals.Alabama has been doing "traffic checks" for ages, going back to late 1980's, when I got my first one.

Then trump's insistence on the Southern Wall, later he beefed up the Canadian border.
That is when I said it aloud...this is East. Germany stuff, to keep us in and controllable while he sells us out.

You add everything up, stir in Dictator 101 moves, and it's obvious.
Of course no one seemed to be listening at the time, it took the concentration camps for kids to get their attention, plus Mein Hair's later swirling down the insanity drain.
Now, finally, we have protesters, they had much more impact than Occupy did. Maybe due to better technology, but I think also to trump's overreach and crazy.
And now we have trump's private army, with Barr leading the way. to trump they are revenge for the Mayors who said no to him.
for Barr, they are pawns for whatever his Opus dei plan is

For us, it may be too late. We've been warned about trump's reactions to a scenario where he loses. And there are a large number of henchmen here and abroad who are happy to give him stage direction on what to do next.

I am expecting martial law/no election. I'd love to be wrong.

23. 100 % agree.



What I did not recall immediately was that he announced the sending of BP along with ICE
to the cities.
It seems pretty clear the anonymous military garbed troops attacking protesters near the WH, who have also been filmed in other parts of DC., are the same, and have been identified as BP.
So he had a cover story for his SS troops.

Not trying to gaslight anyone, but my second response to this ( after the first- which was one of disgust and worry) was that it appears to be street theater. In the context of a staged event. Without some sort of corroboration, please use discretion in it's distriubution.

14. Sure. The video with the two "Camoflauged people" approaching the person in full black coverings

just knew who to go after-esp since they were in an unidentifiable state. The response verbally did not seem from someone who was confused but scripted and it went "so smoothly". This is only a "gut" feel on my part. With that, I suggest caution. This would not be the first time some street theater would have been used to elicit an emotional response to a cause.

If this is going on in other cities, we need to know about i, either way. I've asked my family in Seattle to check it out.

One point tho....these are same uniforms/no ID of the people, mostly men, that attacked and gassed the protesters in DC. Lots of film/news coverage of that.

35. ICYMI...The Nation just did an expose' on the events



For days, federal agents in unmarked cars have reportedly been snatching Portland protesters off the streets. On Thursday, video emerged of federal agents clad in camouflage fatigues and unspecified “police” patches apprehending one such demonstrator and placing him in an unmarked vehicle. Social media lit up with speculation about the intentions—and the identity—of these agents. A memo consisting of internal talking points for the federal agency responsible for the arrest, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and obtained exclusively by The Nation provides some answers—and raises even more questions.

Dated July 1, the memo is titled “Public Affairs Guidance: CBP Support to Protect Federal Facilities and Property” and marked “For Official Use Only.” It describes a special task force created by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in response to President Trump’s Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence. That task force, the Protecting American Communities Task Force (PACT), has been tasked not only to assess civil unrest but also to “surge” resources to protect against it.

The Portland arrest of Mark Pettibone, first reported by Oregon Public Broadcasting, followed several similar arrests involving officers from a Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC)—CBP’s equivalent of a SWAT team—as well as the US Marshals Special Operations Group. A CBP spokesman confirmed to The Nation that CBP agents were responsible for the arrest, pointing to authorities under the Protecting American Communities Task Force.

“Violent anarchists have organized events in Portland over the last several weeks with willful intent to damage and destroy federal property, as well as injure federal officers and agents,” said the CBP spokesman. “These criminal actions will not be tolerated.”

Fla. tags (that's what we call license plates down here) have orange peach pic in the middle.
Most Southern states only require a back plate, including Fla, Georgia, Ala.

I'd really like to know if the vehicle plates are from several states as reported.

25. "WHO ARE THESE FEDERAL OFFICERS SENT TO PORTLAND TO DEAL WITH PROTESTERS?"

July 13, 2020
PORTLAND, Ore. — President Trump claimed federal agents deployed to Portland have arrested protesters and calmed the chaos.

“We’ve done a great job in Portland," Trump said on Monday. “Portland was totally out of control, and they went in, and I guess we have many people right now in jail. We very much quelled it, and if it starts again, we'll quell it again very easily. It's not hard to do, if you know what you're doing."

...
Who is holding officers accountable for their actions?
Federal law enforcement must comply with agency protocol and standards for use of force. The U.S. Marshals Services asked for an internal investigation of this weekend’s incident involving a federal officer’s use of a less-than-lethal round that struck and seriously injured a Portland protester. The case has been referred to the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General for review.

So trump and Barr are responsible for using Fed. troops on a state's citizens without said state's consent, it seems.

The caution approach was taken from the Dan Rather Bush/National Guard incident. Sorry for any confusion.

Unfortunately the protesters are giving cover to the planted agitators who causing enough damage so that Mein Hair and Bully Barr have all the excuses they need.
It's becoming more visible to lots of people now, thanks to internet.

Hopefully there are enough sane people in Portland to file suit on the many grounds they have to date.
