During a military briefing Friday, President Trump indicated he sent federal law enforcement officers to Portland to quell the nightly protests over police violence, and claimed Portland police were incapable of managing the protests themselves.
In the wake of the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis in May, hundreds and sometimes thousands of protesters in Portland have taken to the streets nightly.
Last month, Trump signed an executive order to protect monuments and statues from protests nationwide as well as combat criminal activity. In response, the Department of Homeland Security sent officers to Portland; Seattle; Washington, D.C.; and Gettysburg National Park in Pennsylvania, according to a DHS official who spoke on background. The official wouldn’t discuss additional locations, specific agencies or units, but did say that hundreds of federal law enforcement officers were deployed to areas around the country as a result of Trump’s executive order.
“A lot of this was a big push for the July 4 weekend,” the official said. “We’re still in an enhanced posture. We’re prepared for if there is more violence, we’re ready to deal with it.”
But from all the talk we heard lately again, there was no police to protect Americans from the Antifa rioters.
Footage emerged last night and shows Antifa rioters that surrounds two white Americans and accuse the of being rednecks.
Antifa rioters racially profile and accuse two men of being “rednecks.” A black bloc group surrounds them and kicks them out of the Portland public park. As seen elsewhere, antifa claim territory of a public space & dictate by force who can be in it. pic.twitter.com/KxXhDu6jbX

If the “silent majority” doesn’t speak up soon, they will become the minority. And, quite frankly, will have deserved what they’ve allowed.
Lately, it seems that we conservatives can’t win even when we’re winning. But the country is under siege, so we cannot indulge the luxury of being discouraged.
This year has been one body blow after another to the nation we love.
