    Yes” I agree! It was definitely a failure, just like trump presidency. Not to mention all the bankruptcies he had, failed casinos etc.

    This is what happens when We the People stand up to tyranny! Thanks to all the brave real American protesters!

      @Finn MickCool When it comes to you crazies yeah. The lack of common sense is so astounding us real people can only balk at it.

    • Jeremy Backup exactly. If two rival gangs fight it’s a riot. If an oppressed people fight a tyrannical police state it’s called rioting by the police state. I don’t think so. It’s called a revolt. A revolution does not care what impression theyre creating or who is getting the blame. Or worry about damage control. It’s way past time for the crap.

    • Miguel Pazos well said. He’s been planning this but the pandemic forced his hand early I think.

    • Miguel Pazos they’re so stupid it hard to fathom hey!? They’re very worried Miguel. Very.

  3. Trump thinks he can become a leader like Putin. Loving power.

      @Tylorian LOL, do you really think Trump is going to allow an election when hes looking more and more like losing – wake up.

    • @Carriemchardy Carrie, He is the one who wanted a fair election with voter ID. Something so simple, yet the Democrats were against it. Even poor people on welfare have ID’s.

    • Rich Sackett | July 30, 2020 at 7:57 AM | Reply

      @Tylorian Trump’s going to deny the results of the election. He’s said so. Why don’t you take Trump at his word?

    • Shari BoBerry | July 30, 2020 at 4:07 PM | Reply

      @Tylorian The Marxists and CCP are freaking out and sending their internet bullies out to try and squash our patriotism. F em they can’t vote in the U.S.A all we can do is spread knowledge. But that is threatened as well because big tech.

      ​@Tylorian Stop watching only Fox News and you would know that Trumpzilla Tweeted that it is not going to allow the post office of deliver mail-in ballots. And Trumpenstein is going to postpone the 2020 election. All these federal PIGs must be ex*cuted on sight right now!!!

      Not so fast. Tyrants playbook: cause enough chaos long enough for government to be deemed useless. Install a propaganda machine. Discredit and dismantle free press. Blame a vulnerable minority for all the woes of your world. Sidestep the legislative and judicial branches of government. Bring out your own brown shirts and control the streets. Upend individual freedoms and constitutional guarantees. Fire all competent career administrators and replace them with anyone willing to carry your water and do your dirty work. Declare the elections results fraudulent and call out your private army. Jail anyone opposing you without any due process. Reign supreme and bring the age of darkness upon us all. This only takes four years to accomplish. It ALWAYS works. Ask the Germans, the Cubans, The Eastern Europeans, and now the Americans.

      @Miguel Pazos
      Ask the Romans.
      Divide et impera.
      They employed it from Gaul to Britannia and farther afield.
      Play one side off against the other to achieve power and then to hold onto power.
      Oldest tactic in the book.

      @Shari BoBerry no! heavens no. Why? is that what you do when you run out of hand-me-down bigotry and worn out insults? Oh, wait! you spend your time worshiping your sublime wannabe tyrant who never was a very good businessman, hides his taxes, cheats on his wives, grovels over his master Putin, and dodged the draft on some lame girly excuse. Your guy sure knows how to win!

      In Australia we thought the 2016 election was an IQ test for America now you’ve gotten a second chance. I hope you pass the cognitive test

    • Melinda Johnson | July 30, 2020 at 11:46 AM | Reply

      @S R I served in the US ARMY ×7 years. I was a life long republican until 2016 when I observed an uneducated, lying, narcissist on the ticket.
      I’ve also been an RN 20+ years.
      I love my country. I hate that under this baby country’s are LAUGHING at us. Even trumps master putin laughs at him behind his back, but trump is too stupid to see it. Putin has his hand so far up trumps backside that he is his little puppet .
      I am NOT an America hating Democrat. But in November my ballot will bleed blue to show my love for this country.

    Finally, a failure of Trump’s that holds up the PEOPLE instead of hurting us. To all the protesters; If I ever meet you out in public, I’ll buy you a coffee or a beer. We’re in your debt for your truly heroic sacrifice and bravery and I’ll gladly stand with you given the opportunity. But something tells me Trump’s BS isn’t over yet, so hold your fire and prepare yourselves for round two. I’ll be joining the internet armada as support. From a 21-year-old special needs white man, long lives the BLM movement!

      @Mz 456 The people are only asking for equality, and to live free of discrimination. If that is the case, then the Federal Government deserved it. They answer to the people, they refused to answer, now the people take this to despacito 2 and the more violent and ludacris protesters start being violent, still a lot of peaceful protesters though.

    • MrPurpleHoops - Logan | July 30, 2020 at 9:53 PM | Reply

      @Mz 456 Bottom line is, I am a firm believer that if the government does its job, then the people should abide by their rules. If the Feds don’t do their job, who’s going to support their rules? Their jurisdiction only matters as much as the people value it, and right now with millions of people sick of the Coronavirus and a Civil Rights movement at a boiling point and the Feds not doing flack about it, I’d say that the more violent protesters’ reaction was fitting for the lives lost.

    • MrPurpleHoops - Logan | July 30, 2020 at 9:55 PM | Reply

      @Mz 456 I don’t see it as anarchy, I’d see it as a mob of angry people covered in tear gas trying to fight for survival. I see it as them trying to fight for equal protection under the law and equal protection from the Coronavirus.

    • MrPurpleHoops - Logan | July 30, 2020 at 9:57 PM | Reply

      @Mz 456 Just like soldiers on the battlefield fighting WWI or WWII or the Vietnam War, they’re fighting for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. LIKE TRUE AMERICANS.

    • MrPurpleHoops - Logan | July 30, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      @Mz 456 The US might as well drop the U entirely if we’re not allowed to stand up and fight back against the tyranny of a wannabe dictator, because if we’re just supposed to roll with it, then we have NO BUSINESS being considered as the “United” States of America, we can just split into fifty or so different countries.

    Let’s be clear here, the whole having a ‘businessman’ run a country has been a colossal ‘failed experiment’!

    • Macdonald Maurice | July 30, 2020 at 2:46 AM | Reply

      A successful one would have been a good idea. Not a four time bankrupt!

    • Businessman, huh? 6 bankruptcies and no US bank would give him a loan…

    • He was a rich kid with a trust fund. Hardly a businessman.

      Failed businessman. He was a better Reality television host.

    • wildcatter63 | August 1, 2020 at 2:34 PM | Reply

      That there were sufficient MORONS in the USA top make it possible for Russia to put a so called “Businessman” who’s greatest accomplishments as a “businessman” include driving a CASINO into BANKRUPTCY, leaving his INVESTORS bankrupt; running a SCAM UNIVERSITY that made 40 million and was ONLY FINED 25 MILLION making him a net of 15 MILLION when he was ORDERED TO CLOSE HIS SCAM DOWN…

    Eric Prince test run per trump getn ready for Marshall law? Suppress the voter turnout. LIE, CHEAT, STEAL & divide pit americans one against another.

    • The Dems and media have divided the American people. Trump wanted voter ID so that there could be a fair election. The Dems were against it and that speaks volumes.

    • charles hetrick | August 1, 2020 at 3:31 PM | Reply

      You just described the leftists in this country too. So why not work to end the violence? Why didn’t I see you in Portland screaming at thes entitled white children to go home

  12. We need to start identifying these federal officers by name, charging them with violations under the Constitution and removing them from any position of authority.

    • @Jeff Davis they had an obligation to ignore an immoral order.

    • @Grody Lockseducate yourself on what the law is.

    • @Tylorian I wonder why are all the millions of people filled with rage? Could it be they don’t like to be murdered in cold blood on the streets of their country by the law enforcement out of control? There should be no need to burn anything , if the government took the protest seriously from the start!

    • @Carriemchardy Carrie They are trying to tie that to the Covid-19 stimulus bill being debated currently

    • Carriemchardy Carrie | July 30, 2020 at 2:51 PM | Reply

      @Jeff Davis yeap holding it to ransom, until their demands are met.

  13. I am proud of my Oregon Governor of forcefully standing up to trump and kicking out the taxpayer funded federal goon squads.

      @Tia Laguenouni “Sure there will always be a few instigators, but those people can be targed with the technology they have, and the remainder of the peaceful protesters, can be left protesting in peace, without the fear of any excessive force.”

      You mean the tactic of swooping in, grabbing rioters and throwing them in the back of vans? Well, you all are complaining about that too. Looks like you just don’t want any laws to be enforced at all. Normal Americans want LAW AND ORDER.

      wowza, don’t leave your house. Just don’t.

    • @Sparky McSpark But the news say it was “white supremacists” committing the violence. What gives?

    • charles hetrick | August 1, 2020 at 3:27 PM | Reply

      Are you proud of her for not doing anything while Portland was set on fire? These rioters burned a statue of an elk because what “white people are bad and so are elk!” Are elk super racist and I just don’t know about it?

      @Juliette M Are you referring to the five or six “mom’s” who weren’t even actually mom’s they just “identified” as mom’s? Or the kids who called themselves veterans but weren’t veterans?

    The fascist administration showed its hand.

  15. Those “local police” should have been out arresting these unbranded federal thugs.

    • charles hetrick | August 1, 2020 at 3:21 PM | Reply

      Carriemchardy Carrie the people down the street had committed crimes that’s why they were being arrested. Federal agents like CBP don’t need anyone’s permission to enforce laws within our borders Portland is well within their jurisdiction and the wording of things like the patriot act gives them the authority to act.

    • Carriemchardy Carrie | August 1, 2020 at 3:59 PM | Reply

      @charles hetrick wrong, federal police are only tp protect federal land, thats what state police were for. Its illegal not to identify yourself. Go learn your laws.

    • charles hetrick | August 1, 2020 at 4:14 PM | Reply

      Carriemchardy Carrie here’s a liberal to explain it to you. Customs and Border Patrol can classify their activities as whatever they want to fit the language of the patriot act and do damned near whatever they want.

    • charles hetrick | August 1, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      Carriemchardy Carrie if a person attacks federal land and then flees into a crowd on state land the feds can pursue.

    • charles hetrick and the patriot act is 19 years old and drafted for something entirely different. Those thugs know what there doing is wrong and we will know there names and they will be punished for there actions against innocent citizens. And if you support these thugs then I suggest you leave America you Un American, America hating price of trash.

    Of course the reports from Trump team is in conflict with the truth, it was politically motivated from the start, Trump tried this it didn’t work, wake up !

  17. The trump virus is worse than the “wuHam flu”

  18. Trump can easily avoid confusion with Hitler’s stormtroopers by giving his oppression forces orange uniforms.
