Portland is becoming tougher to write a lead-in to the nightly videos of mayhem and destruction.

‘”If this is Portland, we should be able to find a riot somewhere.  Let’s ask our Uber driver.”

As I have said a few times now, if the rioters want to pick this fight every night, the federal law enforcement agents will be there to accept the challenge.  Backing down and surrendering the courthouse to the mob is NOT an option.  The feds have manpower and resources.  The officers inside the building are rested, fed, hydrated, and fully briefed.  When they come out to meet the rioters it is not ad hoc.   They have a tactical plan, and they execute it.  These men and women TRAIN for this.  The rioters are giving the agents what they want — it’s like going to Disneyland every day for the agents.  You know what they do after getting some sleep, working out in the morning, and have a good breakfast?

They sit around looking at Twitter and YouTube videos of these idiot protesters and laugh their asses off.

The rioters are amateurs, too dumb to know when to quit, and are being used as proverbial “cannon fodder” by the Marxist Antifa and BLM organizations.  Those groups exist to create chaos.

The federal agents welcome the chaos.

Let us take a look at some of what they will be laughing about later this morning.



Has Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had a change of heart?  After expressing so much support for the protesters for nearly two months, he was greeted on Thursday night with bottles other flying debris, and ultimately recused by his multi-man security detachment who had to escort him into a building to get him safely away from the crowd.


Portland PD has been largely absent from the riots for the past couple of weeks.  On Friday night, a Portland PD unit was delayed by protesters from being able to respond to a report of a stabbing.

Well, here is Portland’s finest out on the street earlier tonight — seems to me we might be seeing a little pent-up aggression coming out.

What will Sunday bring?

My guess — the Feds aren’t going anywhere.
