Oregon is in talks with the White House to pull federal troops OUT of Portland as it's revealed the city is fining authorities $500 every 15 minutes for the 'unauthorized' fence outside the courthouse
The Trump administration has initiated talks with Oregon's governor's office about withdrawing federal agents deployed to quell protests, source says
The early-stage talks are with the office of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown and there is still no agreement
I'll call bullshit on this article. Sounds more like Kate Brown blowing smoke for the cover she needs to quell this madness.
The Trump administration has no need to negotiate anything with them.
Yet we get this from a click bait limey rag.
@RonOgletree Okay, apparently they did negotiate. Feds are leaving
"Federal officers who have clashed violently with demonstrators on Portland streets for weeks will begin to depart the city on Thursday, under a deal between the Trump administration and Gov. Kate Brown’s office that was announced Wednesday morning."
The Governor stepping up and doing her damned job is what's part of the deal.
"Federal officers will begin leaving the city on Thursday under a deal reached between Oregon officials and the Trump administration. STATE POLICE will help protect Portland's federal courthouse."
I doubt it will make any difference to Antifa.
No, of course it won't. But it lessens the "Federal Stormtrooper "narrative, and Oregon had a responsibility in this direction all along.
@RonOgletree Yeah, Show me. I AM a Missourian and mule stubborn.
Trump just removed their "stormtrooper" narrative bullshit, while allowing the Democrats to appear as insurrectionist savages, bragging about it.
If OSP actually do their jobs, Gov. Bisexual will sandbag them and dig the hole deeper for Democrats.
If OSP acts as gutless as PPD, the violence gets worse, which is BETTER for Trump, worse for the Democrats, as evidenced by their squirming over the "optics" the last few days.
This sounds like BS. There is no universe where they can collect on that fine it kick out the Feds.
Why would DJT negotiate with terrorists?
@mrbungle Might sound like BS but seems like they did negotiate. This is from Oregon Public Broadcasting:
"Federal officers will begin leaving the city on Thursday under a deal reached between Oregon officials and the Trump administration. State police will help protect Portland's federal courthouse."
That’s total bullshit, due to the Constitution’s supremacy clause. No way for the state to “fine” the federal government, or force the Feds to abandon protecting a federal courthouse. Fake news.
@darulharb It might be total bullshit, but Portland has issued statement that is what they intend to do.
Portland city council v. Federal government
Choose your fighter! 😆
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
