Opinion| Portland, from what I can tell (and keep in mind I am as far from Portland as one can be, while still residing in the US), is on the verge of falling to the Marxist mob.  Yesterday, which we are told marked the 50th day of ‘unrest’, we saw videos of unhinged ‘activists’ calling for nothing short of the abolition of the United States as we know it.

As night fell, the real trouble makers came out and made it clear who they were at war with: the police.

Radical and violent rioters tore down the plywood that had been protecting the windows o The Portland Police Association and set the building ablaze.

An hour before midnight, the Portland Police announced, via Twitter: “people have broken into the Portland Police Association office and lit the building on fire.”

A journalist named Tuck Woodstock reported that they were “hearing some kind of shots.”

At least one rush of Police was was captured on video following the start of the fires.

Earlier in the evening, the black-clad militants were marching through the streets chanting “every city, every town, burn the precincts to the ground.” A stark contrast to the claims by liberals that these mobs simply want “police reform.”

Casandra Fairbanks of the Gateway Pundit explained:

‘Earlier this week, the president of the PPA Daryl Turner met with Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf, which sparked outrage from the city’s leftist activists — both the ones holding political offices and the ones physically destroying the streets. Mayor Ted Wheeler refused to meet with Wolf, but it is unclear if he was even invited.

“The basic idea was to go and listen to see if there were any ideas in there that were helpful for us,” Turner told the Portland Mercury.

On Friday evening, a riot organizer declared that their mission is the “abolition of the United States as we know it” and referred to our nation as “stolen land.”

Following her speech, rioters attempted to barricade federal officers inside the Portland Federal Courthouse and Justice Center while launching explosives at the building. They also allegedly tied a man to a fence and beat him and held a street preacher at gun point before brutalizing him and physically removing him from their protest, according to a witness at the scene who spoke to livestreamers.’

I think it is fair to say that what is happening in Portland right now, as far as I can tell, is a violent insurrection.  Trump needs to make a decision here, and a big one.  What should he do?

He has an obligation to defend federal property from the mob.  I think he should make it clear that federal tax money will NOT be used to repair the property damaged by the city’s inability to restore law and order.

Alternatively, If the city or state ask for federal help, Trump should quell the unrest ASAP, while ensuring that Constitutional rights are not violated, which is never an easy task.

The left is pulling out all the tricks headed into 2020, the must know something is coming if they do not dethrone Trump … I just pray that what they are worried about is that justice is coming for them and their crimes, namely ‘Obamagate’ … & that their concern in warranted. In other words, AG Barr better be the real deal or else this nation is going to collapse under the weight of its tyrants.
