Acting Secretary Wolf Condemns The Rampant Long-Lasting Violence In Portland Due To Local Inaction

Washington, DC – -( “The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob while local political leaders refuse to restore order to protect their city. Each night, lawless anarchists destroy and desecrate property, including the federal courthouse, and attack the brave law enforcement officers protecting it.

“A federal courthouse is a symbol of justice – to attack it is to attack America. Instead of addressing violent criminals in their communities, local and state leaders are instead focusing on placing blame on law enforcement and requesting fewer officers in their community. This failed response has only emboldened the violent mob as it escalates violence day after day.

“This siege can end if state and local officials decide to take appropriate action instead of refusing to enforce the law. DHS will not abdicate its solemn duty to protect federal facilities and those within them. Again, I reiterate the Department’s offer to assist local and state leaders to bring an end to the violence perpetuated by anarchists,” said Acting Secretary Chad Wolf

We need to defund the leadership and locales that are violating Article VI within the US Constitution until they restore Supreme Law. Until this happens, Democrat leadership will continue to abuse constitutional rights. This places ALL citizens at significant risk when leadership use politics to push legislation and executive orders that conflict with our inalienable rights.


Ahhh! Biden’s America.


Are you just mentally challenged? This political stunt being pulled by inserting Federal “law enforcement” agents into Portland without being asked is happening under tRump….or are you already admitting your boy is gonna be run out of office in the biggest political landslide in history this Nov?


It is time to start cracking the skulls of these rioting scum



Part of me agrees with you. But since the general public seems to learn best from video, the other part of me says ‘let the stupid bastards demonstrate their insanity’.

I’m perplexed.


Don’t beperplexed. The general publicof Portland don’t need video. They already KNOW which parts of downtown to avoid, where they can no longer safely go about their normal business.. and do not like it. Im surprised there has not been a recall, or even arrest and prosecution, of Portland’s rotten sorry excuse of a mayor. HE seems to think he is king or something.


delusional much? the majority of Portlanders support the protesting, hence why our ELECTED politicians are chosing not to create dead bodies due to a little spray paint and broken windows…or defacing of stupid monuments and statues….but I have to give tRump credit, he’s hoping to create a few dead innocent citizens bodies just for those weak ass reasons…and it will only HELP get him run out of office and in to a prison cell this Nov….

Strt with the derelict “public servants” who are practicing anarchy by REFUSING to DO that for which they are employed to do. Right out of the gate, Federal Marshalls should arrest and charge the idiot mayor of Portland for his abject failure to DO HIS JOB. It has been HIS orders that have castrated the Portland Police Bureau. THEY stand ready to do their job, and DEAL with the anarchists/destroyers. He swore an oath that he would uphold and faithfully execute the LAWS in Portland. Instead he makes his own and Portland rots. Cut off the ehad of that snake… Read more »



an order from a court to an inferior government official ordering the government official to properly fulfill their official duties or correct an abuse of discretion.


so by your definition, the Portland mayor should be doing his job and using the Portland Police to ARREST these ILLEGAL Feds in my city,,,hey I am all for that! Your logic doesn’t work Tionico, and if you lived here, you’d realize that the majority of the Portland population support these protests….


So the majority of the Portland population would support THEIR property being destroyed or damaged? Grow up.


it isn’t the majority of Portlanders property being destroyed and damaged…sorry, thats a weak ass argument you expound…some spray paint, broken windows, damaged or burned vehicles, damaged buildings will ALL be fixed/repaired/replaced by those thieving insurance companies, and i’m sorry, i grew up and realized human life is more valuable than “property” any day of the week…so yeah, YOU grow up….

Deplorable Bill

That insurrection act is looking good right now and has been for some months now. When governors, mayors, state and city cops won’t, can’t or don’t allow their law enforcement to do their jobs, it is time for the federal government to step up to the plate. Lock up the malifactors, deny bail and just through sheer attrition the numbers of socialist, communist, progressive demoncrapic party lovers will win through to ultimate victory. The poor people who live nearby or work near the places that are under attack have gone through a version of hell. I am surprised there are… Read more »


Oregon is one of the easier states as far as firearms laws are concerned. Mother May I Cards are SHALL ISSUE, aply at your local city police or county sherif,f, yur choice.. Non-residents can apply for and are usually granted Mother May I Cards if they live in a contiguous state. Restrictions on purchase are standard Federal levvel nonsense. I can go into a gun sture, select my item, pay for it, wait for the BGC, and walk out with it. But there HAVE been some incidents in the recnt past involving firearms. Personally I suspect they’ve been mostly out… Read more »

Federal property belongs to all of us no matter where it is. These anarchist punks show up every night with helmets and weapons ready for war against the USA in general. Now they are whining it’s not fair to arrest them? Choot ’em.


The city of Portland administration are all communists or at least socialists. The whole place is trashy dope smoking A-holes.


The citizens of Portland must get together and DEMAND the city and or state government stop the violence. All the touchy fealy nonsense will do NOTHING to stop it. Arrest, try, convict and JAIL works EVERY time.


The citizens of Portland voted in the politicians who refuse to enforce the law. The only demand they have is for the federal police to leave. But thanks for playing.


Conversely, you are also saying that since they voted in the people who passed the laws, you have no problem with places that have laws restricting your right to protect yourself and your family with the availability/use of firearms. Even though the Constitution says that you have that right. OK, thanks for playing.


Sorry RoyD, Portland and the state of Oregon have the most lenient concealed carry laws in the whole United States, anyone without a crim record can apply for a CCW and get one, no questions asked…we can also legally carry automatic knives in the state of Oregon, so yeah, this “liberal” state of Oregon is one of the most 2nd Amendment friendly…now try and come up with some BS comeback/excuse for that… RoyD, thanks for playing…


Hmmm so lienient yet you cant carry said auto knife concealed. While you try again, I have to figure out if today is a concealed Kabar or Fairbairn kind of day….


exactly…these tRump Brown Shirts need to get the f*ck out of my city…they are here ILLEGALLY….I just wish all the 2nd amendment peeps who claim they keep guns to protect themselves from government tyranny would actually realize the Feds being here ILLEGALLY, kidnapping citizens off the street without arresting or Mirandizing them, is government tyranny and put their money where their mouth is and help protest their presence….but Ive always known when illegal use of force by the Feds actually came about, our 2nd amendment people would just sit quietly and do nothing…I call them “Paper Patriots”


What part of marxists attempting to burn down a federal courthouse, causes the US Marshall service to do their job, which is protecting the Federal Courts; do you not get? Are their actions proper for a citizen to have done to them, no. But unfortunately thanks to the Patriot, Insurrection, Riot acts and the NDAA, its all technically legal in their eyes, especially as we the people have not tried to get them repealed. Is it Constitutional hell no. Did they step from protesting, which is legal, to rioting, which is not? Yes, when the first molotov or brick went… Read more »


In Portland, you see the Bolshevik Revolution being replayed to support the democrat’s desire for a communist America.
Why these commies are still breathing is beyond me.
Cowardice and inaction have their consequences.


Quit messing around, start with the state’s leadership, then round up the city’s criminal management.


These Cities when they are destroyed to the point where they request assistance from the Federal Government. The Federal Government need only take out the Terrorist. Leave the City the Hell hole they created. Then they can be seen for what their values are.


Could this all be a ploy to take more of your rights ? Enact stricter unconstitutional laws ? We need more police ? Police need more funding to do their jobs ? etc etc.


@Arny – Are you suggesting that use of unmarked and unidentified secret police snatching people off Portland streets could just be a test run. Are we moving toward nationwide martial law? I don’t think so. While Portland activity must be stopped with extreme prejudice to keep it Fromm setting precedent – US military as a whole would be unlikely to support martial law out of respect for the constitution. Before flaming me for opposing federal law enforcement action in Oregon – consider how those same tactics would be deployed against gun owners and their friends and family when gun-haters have… Read more »


Throw us a few FACTS and then we might consider buying your bilge water.


The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob while local political leaders refuse to restore order to protect their city. Not quite.This stuff has been ongoing i Portland for most of the last four years. Riot,s sdestruction, physical assaults on innocents, occupying federal facilites and/or blocking entry to them by those who work there. Blocing streets, attacking reporters…. This will not end until SOME agency grows a stiff enough spine to stand their ground, arrest ALL who are breaking the law, and trying/convicting them as indicated by their unlawful behaviour. The US… Read more »


What a great job the Corruptible Dumacraps are doing! This is what the brain dead Democrats want, and it won’t stop untill they wake up!


Anonymous federal police in our cities? Too much like Nazi Germany for my tastes. This is Portland’s problem or Oregon’s problem.


Yes Burford, isnt it amazing that all the gun owners on here claim that they own guns to defend against a tyrannical government…yet when the government ILLEGALLY sends in Feds to Portland without INSIGNIAS on their uniforms stating who they are…KIDNAPPING American citizens off the street, throwing them in an unmarked van without reading them Miranda, this is EVERYTHING you gun owners say you’d fight against, the exact tyranny you oppose…yet all of you are amazingly quiet or complicit about it…..your silence or support of this illegal activity on the part of our government speaks volumes as to you guys… Read more »

You have a vivid imagination. Any FACTS to back up your blather?


BINGO! Cowardice and inaction have VERY tight grips on the Freedom-challenged cowards who claim to be gun owners who need their guns to stop government tyranny. YET..THEY SAT, quietly as a church in Waco was attacked and American men, American women, American children and American infants were shot, gassed and burned alive. THEY SIT statues, stores, vehicles and people are destroyed. This board is FULL of screaming yellow cowards who ALL talk tough, but have never worn the uniform, do not shoot in competition and whom would rather drink beer, eat Cheetos and watch bassetball rather than do their… Read more »


Verminous psychotic drug-addicted pasty adipose-tissue losers. It must have rained in Portland, as the rains have washed the STD-ridden F}cK/ng Bolshevik stinking scumbag drug-addicted coelenterates out of the Portland sewer-system and onto the streets. This is how the evil leftist/socialist/commie party celebrates their hate speech. //:0 Pathetic anarchists, with no future other than totally meaningless jobs, esoteric community college or worthless liberal-arts degree, living in mommy’s and daddy’s basement, welfare-dependent wards of the state, chronic drug addiction, mental institutions, jails, prisons, and working the drive-up window at fast-food joints for minimum wage. Mug shots of a few Marxist BLM Antifa… Read more »
