Meanwhile, in Portland, federal officers in military uniforms but with no insignia and no ID are driving around in unmarked vans attacking and abducting protesters from the streets, separate from and refusing to work with local law enforcement. I say "federal officers" as the US Marshalls, the Dept of Homeland Security and other federal agenices have admitted being involved, but given they don't have insginia/ID and are refusing to identify themselves, who knows? They could be private militias or just armed gangs that Trump has deputised? No ID, no reason given for "arrests", no due process, no legal recourse for those abducted in this way. This is actual fascism.

I think the AG was talking about dropping the case, I very much doubt it goes far in that State.

When has he ever been anything else (other than a constant cunt) than that?

He kept repeating person, woman, man, camera, TV during an interview...

Thing is this test that he keeps banging on about like it proves he is some sort of genius is actually the test they give to see if you have dementia, my mum had to have it to prove her mental faculties to sign a legal document, she passed and she did have dementia and died shortly afterwards.

Suspect it refers to this

being extended to Chicago, Kansas City, Albequerque and other US cities. As widely predicted, Portland was just a test run for widespread deployment of paramilitary federal officers on the streets of US cities, kidnapping and attacking protestors. This is, btw, a massive violation of the US constitution as well as being just obviously massively authoritarian.

The Portland mayor has already demanded the federal troops leave. How long before before there is a stand-off between state and federal forces?

He's also been labelling opposition politicians as extremists.

And the long-standing vilification of the media and courts. All standard tactics from the dictator's playbook.

Also.

Where are all the gun nuts that claim they want their guns for protection against a tyrannous government? It's happening now. Literally. This is your fucking moment. You only have one fucking job.

A cynic might think it was just a weak excuse all along.

I saw one of the usual "ProTrump MAGA 2nd Amendment" suspects commenting on a thread on Twitter re the Portland deployments and saying "This is why we need the 2nd Amendment to keep our gun rights". So I asked him if he was heading down to Portland to use his right to bear arms to defend the protestors against a tyrannous govt. He didn't reply and blocked me. So looks like it as a penis substitute all the time
