While they all remain on the city’s police force, they will not serve in riot response. It turns out that when, as Portland Police Association Executive Director Daryl Turner argued, Democrats have “encouraged and enabled some of the violence” over more than 150 nights of riots in Portland, police no longer want to risk their lives to restore peace. But this is a national problem, and Democrats are reaping what they’ve sown. https //patriotpost us/articles/80750-portland-police-protest-the- lefts-war-on-cops-2021-06-21 PJ Media [Bias is conservative-religious] 2021/06/17 Portland Police's Entire Rapid Response Riot Team Resigns After Officer Charged, Antifa Released BY KEVIN DOWNEY JR. https://pjmedia.com/news-and- politics/kevindowneyjr/2021/06/17/portland-polices-entire- rapid-response-riot-team-resigns-after-officer-charged- antifa-released-n1455406 PM: The Post Millennial [Bias is conservative] 2-21/06/22 Portland police union says violence encouraged and enabled by elected officials led to riot response team resignations "The residents and the business owners of the city of Portland have a hopeless feeling right now with what’s gone on." https //thepostmillennial com/portland-police-union-says-violence- encouraged-and-enabled-by-elected-officials-led-to-riot-response- team-resignations https //thepostmillennial com/breaking-portland-police-riot-squad- resigns-votes-to-disband-following-indictment-of-officer-budworth USA Today https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2021/06/18/portland- officers-resign-protest-response-unit-after-indictment/7743851002/ Washington Examiner [W.

Chief Jamie Resch steps aside and allows Lt. Chuck Lovell to be named new chief. By Jim Redden https //pamplinmedia com/pt/9-news/469489-380075-portland-has-new-african-american-police- chief?wallit_nosession=1 Excerpt: After just six months on the job, Portland Police Bureau Chief Jami Resch* has stepped aside, allowing Lt. Chuck Lovell, an African-American man, to be appointed to the top position on the force as the city faces ongoing protests over police brutality. "I have asked Chuck Lovell to step into the role as chief of the Police Bureau. He's the exact right person at the exact right moment,'' Resch said. Resch was appointed to replace Chief Danielle Outlaw, the bureau's first female African-American chief, who unexpectedly resigned to become the Philadelphia police chief in December 2019. Resch's announcement came during Mayor Ted Wheeler's noon Monday press conference, which happened following 10 straight nights of protests spurred by the death of George Floyd and a weekend that saw nearly 100 arrests near the Justice Center. "When your boss comes to you and says the community needs you, I felt like if I in some small way, could be the start for some community healing, it was my duty to do that," Lovell said. * Jami L. Resch is the former chief of police of the police bureau of Portland, Oregon, United States. She served in that role from December 31, 2019 until June 8, 2020.

Shortly before 9 pm Saturday night, a man was killed by a gunshot to the chest outside a parking garage on Southwest 3rd Avenue. Photos of the scene showed he was wearing a hat with the insignia of Patriot Prayer, a protest group that marches in support of Trump. This morning, Patriot Prayer organizer Joey Gibson confirmed the slain man was a "friend and supporter" of the conservative protest group, which for three years has visited Portland for marches and brawls with anti-fascists. https //www wweek com/news/city/2020/08/30/portland-mayor-blames-president-trump-for-fatal- shooting-amid-protests/ https://www.kptv.com/news/police-firebombs-thrown-at-officers-during-riot-in-se-portland-more-than-50- people-arrested/article_b933037c-effd-11ea-8c50-57afb45526d4.html PPB stated that a sergeant was hit with a commercial grade firework, which burned through his glove and hand. Several officers and troopers were hit by rocks, and an Oregon State Police vehicle was damaged by rocks, Barr/Wolf Letter Republicans Homeland House dot gov dated 08/06/2020 https://republicans-homeland.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/mdr-t-wolf-barr-re-riots-8.6.20- signed1268.pdf Dear Attorney General Barr and Acting Secretary Wolf: For the past two months Portland, Oregon has experienced nightly violence from rioters who are targeting law enforcement and federal buildings, including the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse. As much of the violence occurred in the vicinity of the federal courthouse and damage to the facility was mounting, the Department of Homeland Security deployed additional personnel to bolster security to the courthouse and other federal buildings in the vicinity, which is consistent with the Department’s authority under 40 U.S.C. § 1315 and responsibilities prescribed by Congress. Rioters directly targeted law enforcement with violence, including improvised explosives, rocks, glass bottles, a sledgehammer, ball bearings and marbles launched from slingshots, and used lasers to temporarily, and potentially permanently, blind the eyes of officers. I support peaceful protests, but this is not that. It is my understanding that over 245 law enforcement officers have been injured, including several who have sustained serious injuries. Just as all use of force cases by federal officers are and should be reviewed, cases of violent attacks on law enforcement must also be investigated, and the perpetrators must be brought to justice. As former Vice President Joe Biden said, the “arsonists and anarchists should be prosecuted.” The United States has a long history of law enforcement agencies supporting each other. This is particularly true in the post 9/11 environment. Acting Secretary Wolf has been clear that prior to surging federal resources to Portland, DHS requested assistance and coordination with state and local officials and law enforcement to address the violent rioters. Those requests were denied. Instead, Portland officials carried out a smear campaign against federal officials, dismissed calls to address the violence, and passed resolutions preventing local police from providing any assistance, coordination, or information with federal counterparts. This lack of cooperation made a difficult situation worse and may have further exposed federal personnel and facilities to violent attacks, putting politics over American lives. As of July 29, 2020, a joint security plan was reportedly finalized between DHS, the Department of Justice and the Oregon State Police, in which the state police agreed to deploy additional forces to Portland to assist with securing the area around the federal courthouse. Despite media reports that this action has ended the violent riots, it is my understanding that the violence has continued to occur around the federal courthouse, and federal officers have continued to be targeted with fireworks, lasers, and projectiles. As your departments review the violent rioting that has occurred in Portland, I am requesting you conduct a joint investigation into the breakdown of cooperation, mutual assistance and information sharing by state and local law enforcement with their federal counterparts in Portland, Oregon between May 29, 2020 and July 29, 2020. Furthermore, I request that you provide to Congress a full assessment of the injuries to federal personnel caused by violent rioters while on duty in Portland during this same time period, as well as an accounting of the damage done to federal facilities. It is vital that a thorough investigation be conducted into the violent actors that have disrupted a peaceful protest movement, caused significant damage to a federal courthouse, and caused injury to hundreds of law enforcement officers. As part of this investigation, I urge you to ensure that all security footage be maintained and nightly reports on violent incidents and the use of force be collected. To the greatest extent possible, while not endangering law enforcement operations, it is important that information be shared with the public. Thank you for your service and your continued commitment to carrying out the vital missions of your departments. I look forward to receiving a briefing on the results of your investigations into the violence in Portland and the problematic lack of state and local police support. Sincerely, Mike D.

The state headquarters of a governing political party was severely vandalized in broad daylight — the second attack on a Democratic Party building in Portland since November. But because the attackers espoused the right politics from the left, they are conveniently ignored by mainstream media and politicians.

Portland has been gripped by nightly protests for nearly three months since the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Demonstrations, often violent, have targeted police buildings and federal buildings. Some protesters have called for reductions in police budgets while the city’s mayor and some people in the Black community have decried the violence, saying it is counterproductive. Before dawn Monday, police used tear gas to scatter demonstrators who hurled rocks, bottles and commercial-grade fireworks at officers and set fires in the streets as they marched on a precinct station. Twenty-three people were arrested. During that demonstration, a group of about 200 lit a dumpster on fire and used it as a shield as they approached the station, police said. They threw objects at officers, hitting some positioned on the roof, and lit an awning on fire. One officer suffered a wrist injury after he was hit with a piece of ceramic. The FBI said Monday that a threat last week that prompted the closure of a federal courthouse and other federal buildings did not appear to be credible. Among the buildings closed was the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse, which was a target of protesters who repeatedly clashed in July with federal agents. https://ktvz.com/news/oregon-northwest/2020/08/25/police-declare-riot-yet-again-during-fiery-portland- protest/ Fox 2020/09/04 Portland: At least 24 people arrested more than once in protests, riots https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-24-people-arrested-more-than-once-protests-riots KBTX 2020/08/08 Portland protests persist as some bring flashes of violence https //www kbtx com/2020/08/08/portland-protests-persist-as-some-bring-flashes-of-violence/ KPTV 2020/09/06 Police: Firebombs thrown at officers during riot in SE Portland; more than 50 people arrested FOX 12 Staff https //www kptv com/news/police-firebombs-thrown-at-officers-during-riot-in-se-portland-more- than-50-people-arrested/article_b933037c-effd-11ea-8c50-57afb45526d4 html Willamette Weekly 2020/06/01 Police Fence Off 16 Square Blocks in Downtown Portland as Protests Continue Into Fourth Night Police insist they support protesters’ First Amendment rights.

None has been charged with a terrorism-related offense, and federal officials haven't told them why they're on the list.

By Brandy Zadrozny and Ben Collins Towns from Washington state to Indiana have seen armed groups begin patrolling the streets after rumors spread on social media about an antifa invasion. Excerpt: Those protests — and some of the violence and looting that have accompanied them — have become the source of growing skepticism and paranoia in conservative circles. The most persistent rumors center on groups of antifa members being put on buses and sent to small towns to wreak havoc. The rumors are unfounded. But that hasn't stopped people in some communities, like Klamath Falls, from preparing for the worst. Towns from Washington state to Indiana have seen armed groups begin patrolling the streets after receiving warnings about an antifa invasion, often spurred by social media or passed along from friends. Those actions have yet to erupt in major violence but often bring heavily armed people in close contact with protesters, as it did in Klamath Falls. https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/social-media/klamath-falls-oregon-victory-declared-over-antifa- which-never-showed-n1226681 Gresham City KPTV dot com 2020/08/27 Dueling protests at Gresham City Hall's Black Lives Matter Flag mostly peaceful Kandra Kent https //www kptv com/news/dueling-protests-at-gresham-city-halls-black-lives-matter-flag-mostly- peaceful/article_c0388b0a-e856-11ea-ae77-b3f205f7ced9.html Hundreds gathered Wednesday evening in dueling demonstrations at Gresham City Hall, where protests have become popular after city councilors voted to fly a Black Lives Matter flag outside the building.

Some have group affiliation. Some are just sympathetic to organized opposition to Black Lives Matter or other groups they perceive as threats. Some come to rallies and protests armed. Some come from out of town. Some are more than willing to fight protesters. Many support President Trump and conspiracy theories about the federal government. Most see the Black Lives Matter movement as largely dangerous and misguided. Lebanon Gazette Times 2020/06/14 Hundreds gather in Lebanon for Black Lives Matter demonstration.

Justin Wayne of Omaha won approval Thursday to allow debate on his police oversight board proposal on a 32-4 vote. With only 14 days left in the 2020 session, Wayne said he understands he may not have enough time to get the proposal through a public hearing and three rounds of debate and be passed. But, the Black legislator said, the Legislature needs to respond now, not next year, to demonstrate that it "cares" about the pleas to do something about instances of racial injustice involving law enforcement. Book (2011) The Franklin Cover-up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska by John W. DeCamp [Note from PF: Any connection to any Iranian/Hamas black muslim material in the above case? (Iran-Contra material shows up in book)] In the face of opposition from local and state law enforcement, from the FBI, and from the powerful Omaha World-Herald newspaper, a special Franklin committee of the Nebraska Legislature launched its own probe. What looked like a financial swindle, soon exploded into a hideous tale of drugs, Iran- Contra money-laundering, a nationwide child abuse ring, and ritual murder. Nineteen months later, the legislative committee's chief investigator died - suddenly, and violently, like more than a dozen other people linked to the Franklin case. Oregon Indians Involved With BLM Support Note From PF: What’s Wrong With This Picture? Answer: Tribes are not being responsible and ethical in acknowledging the dangerous groups associated with Black Lives Matter, including Hispanic/Latino cartels and Islamic terrorists. It’s a live for today, forget tomorrow attitude. We must hold the Native American tribes accountable. We are not seeing fact checks by tribes about what could happen if terrorists and cartels take over the USA after it is weakened by Umatilla, Navajo and other Indian support of BLM. In addition, the “one heart, one mind” approach, when fused with Islamic extremists, becomes “Big Brother” - a form of totalitarianism. We need to investigate the nexus between big-funding organizers and tribal leaders who accept their donations.

Certain hotels are likely worse than others. They very well might be linked Islamic, black power based organizations. The concept of “running strings” likely applies here. Bank Account Corruption Consider the possibility that people are monitoring out-of-state debit card or other card usage at mafia- controlled hotels, ATM machines and elsewhere around the state. This might include surveillance of cash providers like Western Union. Card, ATM, Using Debit Card at Hotel, ATM, etc: Invasions through surveillance, monitoring and attempted or actual control. ATM machines or bank information, so that a targeted person is somehow stalked and watched around banking transactions. It can include paying with the card at a Native American tribally owned and operated gas station center. Something might be coming up with this invovling transactions at McDonalds using the card. This is of course above and beyond normal proper policing operations designed to capture fraud or other illegality. Instead, this reflects criminal misuse of getting inside a person’s banking information through access at crime
