You are completely correct and people need to realize this and be preparing.

I hope that the various mayors and governors in neighboring states like California and Washington are preparing as well as other cities across the US.

This is EXACTLY what Trump and his fascist administration are planning.

40. Time for the House to withold

funds to stop this political occupation force.

The rental agencies should also stop renting vans to these thugs. Find out which agency rents to them and boycott the agency.

Any word yet from the regular military on this, e.g. Mattis or the Joint Chiefs?

Looks like Civil War II is brewing. The Blue and the Red instead of the Blue and the Gray.

Should be able to resolve this peacefully in the courts, but that takes time. If they rule against this politically motivated military occupation, will Trump comply or ignore them? If they rule for him, what can we do?

It was the occupation of colonial cities by British troops that set off the American Revolution.

Meantime, the Portland protesters could refrain from graffiti and fire setting - IF that's who is doing it.

On 9/11, network stations scrolled the words "America Under Attack" on TV screens. Now the scrolling should read, "America Under Siege."

3. Some important statistics to remember:

The invasion in Portland is primarily involving CBP officers from the BORTAC (equivalent of SWAT) team. Wikipedia says CBP has 45,000 sworn agents and officers, of which approx. 21,000 are officers. Of those 21,000, Only 220 CBP officers are currently Active on the BORTAC team.

The other federal service being used in the Portland invasion is the US Marshalls Special Operations Group. The US Marshalls has approx. 4,000 sworn deputies, of which only a small portion are SOG trained.

Portland is a city of 650,000, and I’m guessing there are maybe a few dozen federal agents wreaking havoc in this invasion. This quote is attributed to Ken Cuccinelli, a long time GOP operative. I believe he was one of The RWNJ’s pushing the illegal immigrant voting fraud nonsense after Trump lost the popular vote.

They can try to “take this nationwide”, and while they may succeed in terrorizing some communities, with limited resources and growing outcry, it’s bound to fail. The more cities they try to invade, the more Trump’s poll numbers will drop.

Like I said in another post, I’d like to see them try to invade and control the streets of Chicago, or L.A., or Detroit, or Atlanta...

12. You are mixing up different entities

1) CBP includes about 25,000 Customs Officers and about 21,000 Border Patrol Agents.

2) About 220 Border Patrol Agents are full time Agents who have received BORTAC training. They typically serve BORTAC duties 2-3 days a month. Their most active role would be working back up with local agencies (hostage/violent felon warrant) or a joint DEA /task Force on a raid on a house that is known cartel with heavy arms.

BORTAC is usually only used in the Border Patrol area when an agent has been assaulted and they are trying to pursue the attacker.

3) Customs also has tactical force of about 6-8 at major ports and they spend a few days a month suited up as a show of force/training at airports and ports but have never heard of them leaving port designated areas.

Border Patrol also has a search and rescue unit.


Your general point is spot on, there are very few tactically trained agents/officers and if they were to take half of them it wouldn't give them enough to "takeover" 2 Portland's.

It takes about a year from selection, training, certification and signing new contracts besides there isn't a great incentive for existing Agents/Officers to sign up. It's not a great career booster and would interrupt most skilled sub categories like mounted, prosecution, communication, K9, etc.

49. GOOD post, Fiendish. Info and perspective are good things.

They're also not trained for what Trump wants to use them for.

NYT:

Federal Officers Deployed in Portland Didn’t Have Proper Training, D.H.S. Memo Said

The federal agents facing a growing backlash for their militarized approach to weeks of unrest in Portland were not specifically trained in riot control or mass demonstrations, an internal Department of Homeland Security memo warned this week.

The message, dated Thursday, was prepared by the agency for Chad F. Wolf, the acting secretary of Homeland Security, as he arrived in Portland to view the scene in person, according to a copy of the memo obtained by The New York Times. It listed federal buildings in the city and issues officers faced in protecting them.

The memo, seemingly anticipating future encounters with protesters in other cities as the department follows President Trump’s guidance to crack down on unrest, warns: “Moving forward, if this type of response is going to be the norm, specialized training and standardized equipment should be deployed to responding agencies.”

6. While the blame is on trump, this is Barr.

It’s not necessary to go back to his old speeches and writings to see his beliefs. He recently, maybe at Norte Dame but I may have that wrong, openly said that we secularist are the largest threat to America.

He is a nutcase. He distrusts liberal democracy and thinks the government should use force to insure a theocracy. Hard Core Catholic radical. Look up his writings.

I really could give a shit if trump is even in prison. If he loses he will be in his own prison.

But Barr, he is true evil. I want him to die in prison.

Fortunately he still thinks we are living in 1968. He sure as hell is. He has no understanding of 2020 America. It confuses him.

15. Barr reminds me of a line in 'The Big Lebowski'.

Where Walter says Nihilist are worse than Nazis because Nazis had an ethos. I think the Cohen brothers were playing games with that. Because a Nazi who hates Jews is way worse then a nihilist who has no beliefs but themselves.

That how I see trump. If going totally liberal was best for him he would go there. Of course, it’s too late now. But he does what is best for him. A true Nihilist.

But Barr? He has an ethos and it is poisonous. And he actually in his speeches and writings admits it. He thinks government should be used to enforce his view of a Christian Society. And nonChristians are not real Americans. Had said he does not like liberal democracy because it is disconnected from Christianity

He is an evil man. Of course I say evil in a secular way. I’m a freethinker.

What will it take to get rid of Barr?

What is the process to eliminate him? Because he is the first person who needs to go.

Once we know what that is, we all need to put the pressure on those who have the power to impeach him to do so. Fuck politics. Anyone who would oppose getting rid of him would not vote for us anyway. He just needs to go, and then we can work on getting rid of Trump and McConnell .

Surely you understand this? How can you not? Do you even read the Constitution?

The house can impeach till the cows come home.

But the senate will never convict him. And nothing changes

There is absolutely nothing democrats can do to get rid of him.

Stop making this look like a failure of the Democratic Party.

And your whole “Fuck politics” thing. Real cute and all. But this all about bare bones politics. If you want Barr gone it will only happen when Biden is sworn in. Until that happens he will remain the AG.

So there is your answer. Any more questions?

Another point at which more Americans SHOULD have realized voting and not voting decides WHO's going to get great power. Every person who didn't vote owns this situation as much as the Republicans who voted for it do.

USA TODAY July 16, 2020

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Several different venues will be utilized for the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville in light of health concerns with the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new email sent by the Jacksonville 2020 Host Committee,

The new memo sent by the Jacksonville Republican National Convention Host Committee revealed an altered plan in light of health concerns with the coronavirus pandemic.

According to an email sent Thursday morning, the committee will limit the number of attendees allowed in venues to solely delegates until the final night. The committee also plans to use multiple indoor and outdoor venues throughout downtown including:

The VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena
The TIAA Bank Field
Daily’s Place Amphitheater
121 Financial Ballpark

The note adds that “several other” venues will be used during the convention, which is scheduled to take place from Aug. 24 through Aug. 27.

I don't think I would be able to live through another four years of this. I mean it.

47. I know, I mean it too.

If he wins I bet someone will flip out. He'd better get added security.

50. And the FAA has called the order to clear the skies over Portland for National reasons.

Trump is planning a coup.

55. An order to clear the skies?

Where did you hear this? To what purpose?

56. .

Someone down thread of the link below said it was probably to keep drones and News helicopters from filming their activity.

Air restrictions are in effect from July 16 to August 16 if I'm reading this correctly.

62. If Trump was planning a coup I really doubt he would choose Portland to start.

63. It's a trial balloon. So, there may be factors that the thinks he can count on.

72. This is my concern as well.

I don't believe it is a far fetched idea either. What we are seeing in Portland is "far fetched" with Barr breathing life into it. These "federal police" and their actions are unconstitutional (10th amendment) by being there without the consent of the state and local government. This is an occupation.

I honestly don't see any scenario in which this madman will voluntarily leave office. He will have to be forced to leave. This is the first U.S. Gestapo. If they can get away with this it will soon be a threat coming to any and all of our cities and homes.

69. I think it could be a drill for post election riots. If polls show Biden winning and Trump somehow

wins with obvious voting irregularities all hell will break loose in certain cities. Trump will most certainly employ Federal troops to keep order and suppress dissent.

75. This.

If the election is flat out stolen again then he will try to squash the complete social unrest with these border agent people


But there are more of us than them.

By a lot.


By the millions.

They are hoping it’s only a handful of people that will take to the streets. It won’t be.
