    ?? One would hope that the end game would be the re-establishment of law and order. That's why Trump supported federal intervention in the first place, where Democrat officials have abandoned their responsibilities to their constituents and the people.

    Keen: I just spoke to a neighbor that lives in Portland. She told me that Dads with leaf blowers will be out in full force to protect the wall of moms, who are protecting the anarchists from the Federal officers.

    Can a leaf blower really hold off the tear gas? Will the wall of moms fall? Yeah, the city has united against Trump. Another failed attempt by Trump for political gain.

    Will Trump resign before the election?

    It isn't a coincidence that Joe Biden just hired 300 lawyers. He wants to make sure all those races within 2 or 3 points go his way, even if they didn't. Combined with all of Soros' efforts to control all the local election machinery (metaphorically speaking, not literally) across the country, those 300 make it much easier for the Dems to win them all. Even when they haven't, like in the 2018 Orange County races.

    Keen: With the exception of meeting Willie Mays as a kid, I have never had a good word for the Giants. But, Gabe Kapler kneeling makes me a fan.

    Glad the fucker in the WH isn't going to watch any games where players kneel. Fuck him!

    The city is not united. Antifa is united. I have a friend who lives in Portland (who is a Democrat) said downtown, there is graffiti everywhere, statues are destroyed and homeless fill every corner, but other than that it seems fine.

    At least you admit they are anarchists.

    Well if they’d stop rioting, looting, burning and destroying, the law wouldn’t need to come down on them.....kinda like these black guys committing crimes, resisting arrest, fighting with officers, reaching for their weapons.....and then wonder why they get blown away.

    But common sense is a lost art these days....

    I find it interesting that Trump's decision to trash the CDC and weaponize the DHS may ultimately destroy two agencies that had very favorable number in the polls prior to Trump's tenure.

    Here is the mandate for the DHS: (1) Intelligence and Warning; (2) Border and Transportation Security; (3) Domestic Counterterrorism; (4) Protecting Critical Infrastructure and Key Assets; (5) Defending Against Catastrophic Threats; and (6) Emergency Preparedness and Response.

    Perhaps you can explain how graffiti prevention and overcoming walls of Moms fits into the Agency's mission statement. This action is nothing more than an abuse of power by a desperate politician.

    Man, you know how to change the subject when you have a losing argument. You're a total clown.

    He said he "just spoke to a neighbor that lives in Portland.". Does this mean GaryB lives in Portland or is he making things up?

    This isn't an argument. It isn't even a debate. I love the Atlantic. They always offer the most interest take on situation such as this.

    "Any rank amateur could have predicted that unprepared troops with guns would increase tension and prolong the crisis. The people in the White House and the Department of Homeland Security who have sent employees of ICE and the Coast Guard into Portland surely knew that they would make people angrier. But although the administration’s behavior makes no sense as law enforcement, it makes perfect sense as a new kind of campaign tactic.

    Welcome to the world of performative authoritarianism, a form of politics that reached new heights of sophistication in Russia over the past decade and has now arrived in the United States. Unlike 20th-century authoritarianism, this 21st-century, postmodern influence campaign does not require the creation of a total police state. Nor does it require complete control of information, or mass arrests. It can be carried out, instead, with a few media outlets and a few carefully targeted arrests.

    But even if the courts eventually force the troops in jungle camouflage off the streets, the president who sent them there—and who is now threatening to send similar troops to other cities—might not care. That’s because the purpose of these troops is not to bring peace to Portland. The purpose is to transmit a message. Americans should find this tactic familiar, because we’ve seen it before. When the Trump administration cruelly separated children from their families at the southern border, that was, among other things, a performance designed to show the public just how much the president dislikes immigrants from Mexico and Honduras. The attack on demonstrators in Portland is like that: a performance designed to show just how much Trump dislikes “liberal” Americans, “urban” Americans, “Democrat” Americans. To put it differently (and to echo my colleague Adam Serwer): The chaos in Portland is not an accident. The chaos is the point.

    The chaos is also a tactic, and now it will be put to use. Now that it has been deliberately escalated, the violence will provide pictures, footage, video clips, and other material for Trump’s media supporters, and eventually for his campaign advertisements. On Fox News, Sean Hannity has already denounced Portland as a “war zone.” Tucker Carlson has spoken of protesters as “mobs” who keep liberal Democrats in power.

    The under50IQ group has been duped once again....

    GaryB, you should put yourself in the zeroIQ group for presenting an opinion piece, from an obviously biased sourced, as fact or news.
