Portland's unrest continues for six straight weeks with no apparent end in sight
https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-protests-trump-federal-officer-shooting-anti-fascist-teens

Quote
The death of George Floyd triggered a wave of protests and violent mayhem across the country as demonstrators demanded justice and a reckoning against racial injustice and police brutality.

In Portland, Oregon’s largest city, those demonstrations have raged for six weeks straight, and local businesses have reported $23 million in losses due to looting and rioting that have gripped its downtown area since the end of May.

Demonstrators have been seen lighting mattresses on fire and setting off fireworks in the streets.

Talk about a unmitigated disaster.  :mental:

Quote
Jacob Michael Gaines, 23, of Texas, was arrested for the assault on the officer.

Amid the unrest, federal officers were called into the city to protect federal properties including the Mark. O Hatfield Federal Courthouse, Pioneer Courthouse, the Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building and Terry Schrunk Plaza.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security deployed more than a half-dozen law enforcement agencies and departments, with officers from the U.S. Marshalls, the Federal Protective Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection rotating protection services throughout the city.

Lot of outsiders are causing trouble.

Quote
However, the violence has no apparent end in sight, and it remains unclear who is responsible for helping organize and supply protesters as they continue to wreak havoc in the streets – most recently focusing on federal property.

Local officials have criticized federal law enforcement and even President Trump for the havoc. Meanwhile, one group of anti-capitalist, anti-fascist teens who call themselves the Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front has used social media to organize throughout the city.

Oh sure! Blame president Donald Trump. It is untenable. :mental:

This isn't about George Floyd and hasn't been for weeks. It's being financed by the anti-Trump millionaires and the DNC.

Seattle rioters seen damaging, looting stores; police say fire sparked at precinct, officer hospitalized
https://www.foxnews.com/us/seattle-rioters-looting-amazon-store-officers-injured

Quote
At least two people were arrested in Seattle and a police officer is in the hospital Sunday after a march through downtown devolved into property damage and looting, police say.

Police said Sunday evening the demonstrators had broken out several windows of the East Precinct, then threw a device into the lobby that ignited a small fire.

The fire was later extinguished and no injuries were reported, police said.

The demonstration started between 2 and 3 p.m. near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Pine Street. A photo posted on Seattle’s DOT traffic channel showed crowds blocking an intersection.

This is ridiculous! They are still rioting!  :mad: :argh:

Quote
Seattle police were working to block off the entrance to Interstate 5 so protesters could not enter, Seattle’s KING-TV reported.

Police said demonstrators had gone from Westlake Park to the Municipal Courthouse and then headed back north to the West precinct "leaving behind a trail of property destruction."

"These are criminal acts, not peaceful protests," police said.

The demonstration came amid ongoing police protests nationwide sparked by the police custody of George Floyd, a Black Minneapolis man, in late May.

The civil unrests are happening in Portland and Seattle, which is nowhere near Minneapolis.

Federal officers in Portland may have been permanently blinded by lasers, officials say
https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-riots-federal-officers-blinded-lasers-fireworks-doxed

Quote
At least three federal officers in Portland may not recover their vision after earlier this week demonstrators, who have shown up in crowds of over 1,000 for more than 50 consecutive nights, shined lasers in their eyes and threw fireworks at a federal courthouse, officials said.

During Monday night's confrontation, one person also threatened to cut off the water supply to federal officers inside the building.

Federal Protective Service (FPS) Deputy Director of Operations Richard “Kriss” Cline said at a press conference on Tuesday that a crowd of more than 1,000 “rioters” surrounded the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and began removing plywood coverings before attempting to throw objects – some of them incendiary – through the windows at federal officers inside.

This is terrorism.

Quote
“When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” Cline said. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.”

The FPS has purchased anti-laser glasses that federal officers are now wearing to prevent eye injuries.

Federal officers responded by deploying pepper balls and tear gas. Cline said officers observed one individual taking pictures of a water intake system to the Edith Green Federal Building, which is also under FPS protection. Earlier in the evening Monday night, a Twitter user said “So we can shut off the water to the buildings the feds are staying in to make it a nightmare for them.”

10 Big Fat Lies You're Being Told About the Portland Riots
https://pjmedia.com/columns/victoria-taft/2020/07/26/10-big-fat-lies-youre-being-told-about-the-portland-riots-n675861

Quote
Democrats have fully pivoted on the nightly Portland riots. They’ve gone all-in on blaming the riots on President Trump thus allying themselves with the antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchist and communist mobs. Instead of black bloc balaclavas or masks, the politicians have donned the cloak of civil libertarianism. In doing so, they make a mockery of it.

Democrats, so far as I can find, have never denounced the violent mobs, though New York Governor Andrew Cuomo once wagged a finger at George Floyd rioters while simultaneously explaining that it wasn’t really their fault because “income inequality” led to violence. Indeed, the only remonstrance issued was over people burning down black-owned businesses – their “own house” as he put it, because burning your own stuff “never makes sense.” As denunciations go, it was a rambling nothing-burger. Atlanta’s mayor voiced similar disgust with the arsonists and looters.

In fact, mayors, governors, and prosecutors have fallen all over themselves to support the violent mobs in Seattle, New York, St. Louis, Washington, D.C., and, of course, Portland, often conflating the “mostly peaceful” protesters upset with the killing of George Floyd – remember him? – with the ones looting Louis Vuitton, tearing down statues of George Washington, and trying to burn down federal buildings.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan ceded a section of the fancy Capitol Hill neighborhood to the mob. She handed over a police precinct to the mob. Two murders, gunshot wounds, assaults, and rapes took place at her pet mob’s little “summer of love” squat. She’s never apologized.

Very eye opening.

Trump-loving grandma outs Portland ‘bomber’ to feds — and it’s her own grandson
https://nypost.com/2020/08/01/trump-loving-grandma-outs-her-own-grandson-as-portland-bomber/

Quote
Shortly after midnight on Tuesday morning, videos captured the moment a makeshift bomb was thrown at the Portland federal courthouse during another night of violent protest. A Trump-loving, 69-year-old woman soon stepped forward to out the suspect publicly — as her own grandson.

Karla Fox says she recognized the alleged bomber as her daughter’s son, 18-year-old Gabriel “Rico” Agard-Berryhill.

In the hours after the IED attack, social-media users analyzed videos showing a slim male, wearing a distinctive olive vest with the word “ICONS” printed on it, throwing something over the fence at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse. Seconds later, a large explosion erupts, covering the front door in flames. The man picks up something off the ground and sprints off-camera. Police said the concussion could be “heard and felt more than a block away.”

Karla Fox turned in her own grandson Gabriel “Rico” Agard-Berryhill in for throwing bombs at the federal courthouse.

Quote
Agard-Berryhill seemed to confess to misguided involvement in the incident in text messages to The Post on Thursday, although he did not confirm he was the bomber.

“The device I’ve been accused of allegedly throwing was allegedly given to me by an unknown protestor with full face coverings,” he wrote. “I was allegedly told that it was a strobe firework that wouldn’t damage the building or harm anyone around it.”

He added: “Law enforcement has not contacted me for any alleged crime as of right now.”

He is clearly a willing participant if someone handed him a bomb and he threw it at the federal courthouse.

Quote
Fox said her grandson is currently on probation for a felony conviction when he was a minor. She said he spent the past two years at Rogue Valley Youth Correctional Facility in southern Oregon and recently talked of turning his life around, and getting a job at Amazon.

Fox spoke Thursday with Agard-Berryhill’s mother — her daughter — who told her she was not aware of the bomb video.

The 12:11 a.m. explosion was so loud that even members in a private chatroom used to coordinate protest and riots expressed surprise.

He is still on probation.

Riot declared after Portland protesters set police union building on fire
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/riot-declared-after-portland-protesters-set-police-union-building-on-fire

Quote
Police in Portland, Oregon, declared another riot after local and state officials requested federal officers withdraw from the state.

On Saturday, a mass gathering of protesters devolved into violence, with demonstrators later in the night blocking traffic with dumpsters, setting dumpsters on fire, and vandalizing the Portland Police Association building. A group of people later broke a window into the PPA office and ignited a fire in the building.

"Officers from the Oregon State Police and PPB arrived in the area to disperse the crowd. They were met with a hostile crowd who began throwing glass bottles and paint balloons at them," the police said in a statement. "The hostile crowd also tried to injure officers by shining green lasers into their eyes, which is a crime in Oregon. Three officers suffered injuries. Two were transported to an area hospital by police vehicle and later released. Personnel from Portland Fire and Rescue were able to gain access to the location and extinguish the fire inside the PPA Office."

The riots continue to rage on in Portland.

Quote
At the end of July, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, said that "all Customs and Border Protection & ICE officers will leave downtown Portland" in a "phased withdrawal." However, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said federal authorities will maintain a presence until the government is confident the federal property is safe.

"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 of Brown's publicly stated timeline.

Protests in Portland have continued since the Memorial Day death of George Floyd. Police previously declared another riot in the city after protesters toppled a courthouse fence last month.

Police Name 25-Year-Old Marquise Love as Suspect in Beating of Portland Man
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/08/18/police-suspect-marquise-love-beating-portland-man/

Quote
The Portland Police Bureau on Tuesday named 25-year-old Marquise Love as a suspect in the beating of a man in Portland by rioters on Sunday evening.

The PPB said in a statement:

Yesterday, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) began investigation of an assault that occurred in the downtown area where an adult male associated to a white pick-up truck was violently assaulted. Investigators positively identified the suspect as 25 year-old Marquise Love. Investigators made attempts to contact Love but could not locate him.

Update: PPB Identifies Suspect in High-Profile Assault, Efforts to Locate Suspect Underway (Photo) https://t.co/BPDNv50ifp pic.twitter.com/g5JfsNefBb

— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) August 18, 2020

Love was allegedly captured on video kicking the victim in the head as he sat on the ground after being beaten by several rioters, knocking the man unconscious.

A person was violently attacked by rioters.

Quote
According to The Post Millenial, Love was previously charged with fourth-degree assault and harassment in a 2017 domestic violence case book at Washington County Community Corrections Center in Hillsboro, Oregon.

The PPB also said the victim, identified on social media as Adam Haner, has been released from the hospital and is recovering, despite rumors that he is not recovering or dead.

The PPB said investigators are still trying to locate a transgender female who was robbed in the area of Southwest Taylor Street and 4th Ave, where the incident began. That person’s identity is unknown, police said. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Detective Brent Christensen at 503-823-2087 or at Brent.Christensen@portlandoregon.gov.

Talk about a career criminal.

The Lights Are “Blinking Red” in Portland — The Rubicon May Have Been Crossed Today
https://www.redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2020/08/23/the-lights-are-blinking-red-in-portland-the-rubicon-may-have-been-crossed-today/

Quote
Earlier today I had this report on an eruption of violence in Portland in the afternoon between BLM/Antifa and “Back the Blue” groups said to include members of the right-wing group “Proud Boys.”

I noted in the story that until federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security appeared on the scene approximately an hour after the incident began, there was a noticeable lack of Portland Police in any of the videos of the two groups clashing.

Late today came an explanation for their absence — there were insufficient police resources available to the shift commanders to do anything to intervene in the incident that involved well over 100 protesters from both sides.

Portland continues to riot. It keeps going and going and going.......................  :mental: :mad:

Quote
Portland PD has confessed that it is running out of the capacity to deal with violence in the city on a 24-hour basis.  There are going to be some hours during the day when insufficient police resources will be unavailable to separate the two sides.  Episodes like today are likely to repeat, maybe grow in size, and involve more weapons and greater violence employed by each against the other.

The District Attorney announced two weeks ago his office was not going to prosecute “riot” related crimes.  That caused the State Police to pull their personnel out of Portland.

It sure does not appear that the local and state authorities have a plan to turn the tide here.  This may eventually come down to a steel-cage death match that each side seems to want to have.

After today’s escalation, it might come faster than expected.

Portland protesters stage sit-in at mayor's home -- after he and Trump trade barbs
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/portland-protesters-stage-sit-in-at-mayors-home-after-he-and-trump-trade-barbs

Quote
A group of Portland, Ore. protesters staged a sit-in inside the lobby of Mayor Ted Wheeler’s condominium building Friday evening while others held a loud concert outside.

The protesters said they wouldn’t leave until Wheeler meets with them over their demands that he resign, reduce the Portland Police Bureau budget and never vote to increase police spending.

The protest appeared to be peaceful as of 10 p.m. local time, although red-paint handprints were seen on the glass outside the lobby, according to independent journalist Garrison Davis.

The Jacobins are sitting in at Mayor Mayor Ted Wheeler’s condominium building after he rejected federal officers to stop the riot.

Quote
Thank you Portlanders for a powerful display of solidarity at last night's demonstrations,” he tweeted. “Racial justice requires the entire community to come together. Let's continue to focus on the work ahead and move forward with reform, recovery and resilience plans for PDX.”

Earlier Friday, Wheeler wrote a letter to President Trump, declining an offer of more federal officers to quell rioting that has plagued the city since the May 25 death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis.

“We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery,” he wrote. “When you sent he Feds to Portland last month you made the situation far worse. Your offer to repeat that disaster is a cynical attempt to stoke fear and distract us from the real work of our city.”

The Jacobins want Mayor Wheeler out. Pandering to Jacobins is an exercise in futility.

NPR worries that declaring violent Portland protests to be riots could be racist
https://www.foxnews.com/media/npr-portland-riot-declaration-may-be-racist

Quote
Authorities in Portland, Ore. may be racist in the way they define "riot," according to National Public Radio.

The taxpayer-funded media outlet aired a report Thursday in which it claimed that state laws governing riot declarations "have roots in the state's racist history."

An accompanying article by Oregon Public Broadcasting's Jonathan Levinson linked to a June interview with Black studies educator and writer Walidah Imarisha, who claimed the state's historically racist laws "absolutely" echo through Oregon's current governance.

Most of the rioters are White. Portland is mostly White.
https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/portlandcityoregon

Quote
The Portland Police Department and Mayor Ted Wheeler's office did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comments. As Levinson's article notes, Portland Police Bureau Deputy Chief Chris Davis defined riots in a video posted online.

"A riot is when six or more people engage in tumultuous and violent conduct, and thereby intentionally or recklessly create a grave risk of causing public alarm, excluding people who are engaged in passive resistance," Davis says in the clip.

New video shows chaotic aftermath of fatal Portland shooting amid protests
https://nypost.com/2020/08/30/new-video-captures-aftermath-of-portland-shooting-amid-protests/

Quote
Chilling new video shows the chaotic aftermath of a man’s fatal shooting Saturday night in Portland, Ore., amid violent clashes between Black Lives Matter protesters and President Trump supporters.

The footage — posted to YouTube by local videography channel Stumptown Matters — does not capture images of the 8:45 p.m. local time shooting, but a man can be heard yelling, “We got a couple right here!” followed by a pair of gunshots.

The victim — who, according to a freelance Associated Press photographer was wearing a cap bearing the insignia of right-wing group Patriot Prayer — is then seen lying face-down and motionless on the street, as another man rushes over, asking, “You OK?”

The man flips the victim onto his back, and four apparent Black Lives Matter protesters run into frame, one of them dropping a bag to kneel down beside the victim.

People are getting killed in Portland.

Quote
The victim, struck in the chest, was ultimately pronounced dead on the scene.

Investigators are yet to publicly identify him, or a suspect in the slaying.

The City of Roses has been roiled nightly by protests, at times violent, since the late May death of George Floyd, a black man killed in Minneapolis beneath the knee of a white police officer.

Man sparks outrage for saying Michael Reinoehl ‘justified’ in shooting of Trump supporter
https://nypost.com/2020/09/11/michael-reinoehl-justified-in-shooting-of-trump-supporter-professor/

Quote
A Rhode Island professor has sparked outrage by claiming an Antifa security guard was morally justified in killing the supporter of a right-wing group after a Trump rally in Portland.

Erik Loomis, a professor at the University of Rhode Island, first speculated that self-confessed “100% Antifa” killer Michael Reinoehl was executed by police when they came to arrest him.

“I am extremely anti-conspiracy theory. But it’s not a conspiracy theory at this point in time to wonder if the cops simply murdered him,” the scholar wrote in a blog post.

Erik Loomis is just as bad as Michael Reinoehl. He is a terrorist.

Quote
The academic followed up with two separate blogs about the huge backlash he received, one in which he refused to become a victim of “cancel culture,” another in which he insisted, “I stand behind every word of what I said.”

“The issue of violence in self-defense on the left has been a debate for over a century and a theoretical discussion over when to use it and whether this incident was justified is a perfectly fine conversation to have, especially given the rise of armed fascist groups taking over our nation,” he wrote.

“It’s been a great day of deleting hate mail sent from people with AOL and Outlook accounts,” he wrote.

The University of Rhode Island did not immediately respond to messages for comment.

Portland protests continue after fiery wildfires and vigil for RBG
https://nypost.com/2020/09/20/portland-protests-resume-after-short-break-from-wildfires/

Quote
ortland protesters returned to the streets over the weekend — after a brief respite due to raging West Coast wildfires, according to reports.

About 200 Black Lives Matter demonstrators gathered in the Oregon city around 9 p.m. Saturday and marched through downtown, at times smashing store windows and tagging buildings with graffiti, Fox News reported Sunday.

“The group marched around in the street for several hours, stopping at various locations to demonstrate and in some cases damaged property and apply graffiti,” police said in a statement posted on Twitter. “Individuals in the group broke windows on businesses, including a bank in the 400 block of Southwest Harrison Street, a restaurant in the 1900 block of Southwest Broadway, and coffee shop in the 1000 block of Southwest 6th Avenue.”

They keep rioting.

Quote
Police did not use tear gas to disperse the crowd, in keeping with Mayor Ted Wheeler’s banning its use.

The uneasy weekend followed a lull in the protests in Portland that have shaken the city for more than 100 days. Smoke from the wildfires, which has scorched wide swaths of Oregon, California, and Washington state, briefly grounded the demonstrators.

Smoke from the fires, which have burned through more than 1 million acres in Oregon alone, not only engulfed the city but reached as far as Europe.
