Is Portland Part of a Rightwing Militia Takeover?

Oregon's Attorney General has sued the federal government seeking an injunction against arrests by persons without uniforms and badges and/or in unmarked vehicles.

The Oregon complaint states in part:

“Defendants are injuring the occupants of Portland by taking away citizens’ ability to determine whether they are being kidnapped by militia or other malfeasants dressed in paramilitary gear …. or are being arrested."

The militia is exposed to an unprecedented degree in this article including militia candidates for office bragging about the extent of their influence and membership.

This expose' about 3%er militia is well-researched and includes expert opinions by former counter terrorism officials. Turns out militia is HEAVILY present in oil and gas, has Congressmen proclaiming fealty, has connections to police and other law enforcement, and is present at critical national energy infrastructure facilities.

For insight into armed protests at state capitols, harassment of indigenous people and protesters, events in Portland, and the discussion about contemporary fascism, this is an absolute Must Read.

2. At some point, someone detained will be hurt, sexually molested, maybe even die.

Then authorities will be forced to drill into the origins and identities of these "peace keepers".

4. I believe Barr is crazy enough to deputize members of the extreme right wing militias.

5. Can unbadged thugs in camo grab ballot boxes and throw them into unmarked cars?

If they can grab people, and there are no consequences, what protects the election?

7. Portland and the President's reaction

is about election year politics. Trump wants to prove to his 40% that he is all powerful and that he is a "law and order" President. It is campaigning, misusing his immense power as President, nothing more or less.

8. Border Patrol checkpoints within 100 miles of border shutdown

In the past based on US v Martinez Fuerte which denies jurisdiction of the feds for "ordinary criminal wrongdoing" which is relegated to state law.

16. Corporate sponsored thugs. The fossil fuel industry isn't interested in transitioning to a green

economy, it will resort to Fascism to keep what it has.
