That “Phased Withdrawal” of Feds from Portland

 In Domestic, Politics

Oregon Governor Kate Brown claimed that the Feds (Federal law enforcement) guarding the Federal courthouse in Portland would be leaving today, Thursday, July 30. Then she backtracked and said that the Trump administration agreed to a “phased withdrawal” of Federal agents. DHS Secretary Chad Wolf disputed that statement, and said that they weren’t going anywhere until the attacks on the courthouse cease.

“As I told the Governor yesterday, federal law enforcement will remain in Portland until the violent activity toward our federal facilities ends. We are not removing any law enforcement while our facilities and law enforcement remain under attack.” Chad Wolf

The agreement with DHS says that the presence of the Feds in Portland will depend upon an influx of Oregon State Police and Portland Police, and will be re-evaluated as the situation evolves.

“The agreement allows for federal agents from the Federal Protection Service to oversee efforts at securing the courthouse prior to handoff to local authorities and gives the Department of Homeland Security the right to change their ‘force posture’ if and only if state and local authorities are able to sufficiently protect federal property.” Daily Wire

The actual fact is that the State of Oregon agreed to begin cooperating with Federal authorities to protect the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse. IF they do that, the Feds will withdraw, but not until that happens. The weeks and weeks of attacks on the courthouse have left dozens of officers injured, the courthouse covered in graffiti and damage, and a Governor- Mayor lying through their teeth.

That tweet was extremely deceptive. But the mainstream media hopped on it to help it along. Brown also claimed she got the Feds to clean off the graffiti. Her victory lap didn’t last long.

Independent Journalist Andy Ngo asked the Governor this question:

“How did they bring violence when the riots were already happening for around five straight weeks before the surge of federal reinforcement came?” Andy Ngo

She didn’t answer. No surprise there. The leftists in Oregon, Washington, and other places are so blinded they can’t see the “forest for the trees.”
