DHS Confirms Barr Will Be Deploying His Black Ops Inter-agency Army Nationwide

(Talking Points Memo) DHS Under Boss: We’re Taking This National
By Josh Marshall
July 18, 2020 12:02 a.m.
When asked about calls for an investigation into DHS police tactics in Portland, Oregon, Acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli tells NPR not only are they not going to stop but they want to take the tactics nationwide

"Well, we are – we welcome – the more investigations, the better. With as much lawbreaking is going on, we’re seeking to prosecute as many people as are breaking the law as it relates to federal jurisdiction. That’s not always happening with respect to local jurisdiction and local offenses. But, you know, this is a posture we intend to continue not just in Portland but in any of the facilities that we’re responsible for around the country."

2. Tough talk belies reality- some important statistics to be aware of:

(Reposted from my comments on another thread about this same topic):

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...

4. You make a good point.

Just thinking of Lori Lightfoot, she's a beast (in the very best way) and Chicago's not Portland....

5. The White House

is "Federal jurisdiction" and it's my understanding that it is full of traitors, money-launderers, and fraudsters. They could fill up multiple vans right there
