Three federal agents who were sent to Portland, Ore., to try to help quell the city’s violent protests were “likely left permanently blinded” from clashes, White House officials said Friday. “A federal agent’s hand was impaled by planted nails, another federal agent was shot with a pellet gun, leaving a wound deep to the bone, and tragically, three federal officers were likely left permanently blinded by the rioters using lasers pointed directly into their eyes,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Friday. All five of the injured federal agents were hurt Monday during ongoing protests at the Multnomah County Justice Center

Comments:

USA lacks the will to win wars overseas, to control its border, or to contain violent domestic rioting that's been ongoing for months. Make a casual remark at work about the Marxist coup in progress and be branded a racist, which is akin to being a child molester. And yet we pay taxes to a government that does not defend us (when not working in direct opposition to the citizenry) and we boast about our many freedoms.

This is sedition, pure and simple. A firing squad is too merciful for them, but probably the most practical.

Just about the worst thing that could happen would be for Trump to send in Federal agents and have them beaten down by the mob. I can't think of a worse outcome for the rule of law, for trust in the presidency. These violent mobs will only become bolder and more deadly as they see that-- they can win! The president needs to send in overwhelming force and crush these b*stards.

That is my comment too. Lasers, nails, frozen water bottles/bricks, commercial fireworks. These Riots are Dangerous, as well as the ambush of the cops in Chicago. To say rioters can use deadly weapons and LEOs have to take it - no way Jose. Should have snipers shoot a few rioters every night - peaceful protest is fine, but rioting - you are risking your life. Of course the Democrats are looking for TV footage of Kent State to make political hay of the useful idiot martyrs that get shot. Blood....good tv for the masses....Trump is a murderer....and a despot....and a tyrant....

China based companies are selling even 10 watt handheld lasers by mail to U.S. consumers / terrorists, illegally. (5 Milliwatt is the maximum power that is legal for general consumer use, and even that can blind you if you stare into it.). They often label them as 5mW to get them through customs. I wonder how many of them were paid for by Soros & co..

These people aren't expressing an opinion to be debated. Encircle them, so they cannot escape and cut them down. At the very least, break bones and cripple them, so they cannot injure anyone else. Then seek out those who paid to get them there - and you can be sure there was such assistance and gather them up, fine them into penury and debate whether we can revoke their citizenship. They seem to only understand violence, so give it to them!!!

I expect to see arrests based on video taken by plainclothes federal officers of the perps. Then maximum sentences. If not, we are really looking at a civil war in the not-distant future. And I do not mean the generic 'we' here. I mean all of us, and no matter the outcome of the election.

I wondered anew at the cluelessness of the Left when they protested the use of Homeland Security personnel. They whined that DHS was created to fight terrorism. Just what would you call committing violent acts, maiming people, and killing people solely to achieve a political goal? This is textbook terrorism and PDJT is obligated to counteract it.

What we have been witnessing in Portland, Oregon is a preview into the world of violent anarchists and Marxists. The police obviously have been instructed to stand down, probably by the mayor, thereby allowing the city to be overrun by lawless hoards of criminals under the guise of racial justice for blacks. The Chief of Police in Portland, Chuck Lovell, should resign if he's not willing to do his job. The Portland Charter spells out the Duties of the Chief of Police that states: (Amended by Ordinance No. 138453; effective July 27, 1974.) The Chief of Police is a peace officer and must execute all processes directed to him by any magistrate of this State in criminal matters. He may make arrests for breach of peace or commission of crime within the limits of the City with or without a warrant as peace officers do under the laws of this State. He must exercise a vigilant control over the peace and quiet of the City. He shall exercise such additional powers as may be conferred upon him by the ordinances of the City to enable him to carry out the objects and purposes of this Charter. Chief Lovell you have proven yourself to be a coward and obviously unfit to lead the great men and women of the Portland Police Bureau. RESIGN NOW!

Cleveland, Ohio—A local dance teacher is under investigation for allegations made by several of his students. 19 News investigators obtained a copy of the warrant issued Thursday morning for Terrence Greene’s arrest. The warrant says a former student told police Greene, 54, preformed oral sex on him in a dressing room at the Cleveland School of the Arts in 2008. The warrant says at the time, Greene was employed as a dance teacher by the school. It also says multiple other victims have come forward with other “extremely similar” incidents they say happened to them.(Snip) We uncovered years of complaints, ranging from

President Trump signed a batch of executive orders Friday designed to slash drug prices in an election year, including a long-awaited push to align the price of Medicare drugs with what other developed nations pay. He said it is unfair that Americans bear the cost of Big Pharma’s research-and-development costs through high prices while “socialist” countries enjoy lower prices, often due to government-mandated caps. “We are bearing the entire cost of all of this. They are bearing none,” he said. “I’ve been waiting for this day a long time.”(Snip) Another executive order would force middlemen to pass certain rebates to consumers,
