    Google is turning over user data to US law enforcement, even when requests for that come without a warrant, in the form of requests that are not court-ordered. That emerges from information shared with the LA Times by an anonymous Google user, who said they were notified about this in an email from the tech giant, who said the request came from the Department of Homeland Security, without including the request itself in the email. When this Google user asked to see the document, it turned out to be an administrative subpoena issued by the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE),...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson Thursday night revealed Bank of America searched through customer data and provided the data to the feds after the Capitol riot. Bank of America gave data and information to the feds at the request of the US government, without the knowledge or consent of the customers. One innocent Bank of America customer was actually interrogated by the feds and ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing. How is this even legal? Bank of America scanned through customer records to flag the following: Were they in DC between January 5 and January 6 Purchased a hotel stay or...

    The Department of Justice is looking into whether federal charges can be brought against Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan over her failure to crack down on a so-called “autonomous zone” controlled for weeks by rioters. Attorney General William Barr has tasked the DOJ’s civil rights division with investigating whether charges can be brought against Durkan, The New York Times reported on Wednesday evening citing two people familiar with the discussions. Barr has also asked federal prosecutors to consider charging rioters with sedition and insurrection against the United States government, according to The Wall Street Journal. Rioters took over several city blocks...

    DHS ^ | July 31, 2020
    Bottom line: After weeks of violent rioting and nightly attacks, federal officers in Portland saw their first night of state and local law enforcement support and relative peace in the vicinity of the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse. Following Wednesday’s announcement of a cooperation agreement between DHS and Oregon’s governor, Oregon State Police (OSP) and the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) stepped in to assist operations to protect the Hatfield Federal Courthouse. Crowds remained peaceful through the course of the evening; there were no reported actions, and thus no intervention by state or federal officers. The past 24 hours: Thursday afternoon,...

    The federal agents who have clashed with protesters in Portland will begin a “phased withdrawal” from the city's downtown area starting Thursday, Oregon's Democratic Gov. Kate Brown announced. Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said in a statement that he and Brown have been in contact over the past 24 hours and reached a joint plan to end "the violent activity in Portland directed at federal properties and law enforcement officers.” “That plan includes the robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland,” Wolf said. “State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those...
  • Yes, Justice Roberts, There are “Obama Judges” and “Bush Judges”

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    A tale of two judges. – Chief Justice John Roberts – the clearly-compromised former conservative jurist who now does the bidding of the progressive left whenever they demand it, apparently – famously stated in 2017 that there are no “Obama judges” or “Bush judges,” there are only federal judges. That, of course, is abject bullshit, but hey, it’s what the Chief does these days. Late this week, we saw the dichotomy between the kinds of decisions we get out of Bush/Reagan/Trump judges and Obama/Clinton judges in two decisions related the ongoing rioting taking place in Portland. It is a classic...

    Walls used to be a bad thing to the far left but now they are all the rage. In Portland, for example, the riots and protests have created a Wall of Moms, a Wall of Dads, and now they are joined by a Wall of Vets. That’s right, military veterans have come together in an organized effort to protect the protesters from the federal officers sent to Portland by President Trump. The activist veterans claim that reports “of federal officers in tactical gear emerging from unmarked cars with automatic weapons to pick up protesters” were too much for them...

    Last week Oregon’s Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum filed a request for a temporary restraining order against federal police officers in Portland. On Wednesday of this week Judge U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman heard arguments in the case and appeared to be on the fence, accepting some of the Resenblum’s claims but not all. Today, the Judge ruled against the restraining order: A U.S. judge Friday denied an order sought by Oregon’s top law enforcement officer to stop federal agents from arresting people during nightly protests in Portland that have roiled the progressive city and pitted local officials against...

District Attorney Larry Krasner accused President Trump of "acting like an authoritarian dictator," he said on an appearance on MSNBC's "The ReidOut" Thursday and cautioned him not to send federal agents to his city.

    At least three federal officers could be left permanently blind after they were attacked with lasers by protesters in Portland this week. The officers, part of the Federal Protective Service, were injured during rioting in the city on Monday night as they attempted to keep anti-government demonstrators from gaining entrance to a federal courthouse in the city's downtown area. “When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” said Deputy Director of Operations Richard Cline. “We have three officers who currently have eye...

    Earlier Thursday, a federal judge ruled that officers from the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies working in Portland could not use force against or arrest journalists and legal observers at protests. Previously, that restriction had only applied to the Portland police. Around midnight, protesters continued to gather at the reassembled and reinforced fence surrounding the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse. The Federal Protective Service periodically warned people when they began to shake or hit the fence, and around 12:30 a.m. officers began firing pepper balls through the fence and into the crowd. The mainstream media only reported...

    Antifa rioters accidentally set one of their own on fire Wednesday in yet another night of Portland, Oregon, rioting, which has spanned weeks. While the violent extremists attempted to set the structure on fire, a poorly thrown molotov cocktail fell short of its mark and struck a black bloc individual. Bystanders tried to help to put out the fire on the person’s back, arms, and legs. Video below: The media keeps telling us about the peaceful protesters protesting peacefully in Portland. Such peaceful, much protest (see DONALD TRUMP’S ‘UNIDENTIFIED SECRET POLICE’ IN PORTLAND? HERE’S WHAT THE MEDIA IS LEAVING...

    Despite Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler having spent his whole career as mayor catering to left-wing extremists, Rose City’s extremists showed him zero love when he chose inexplicably to march among them during a “protest” Wednesday. From the moment Wheeler entered the scene — reportedly with his security detail close by — he was hassled, with the extremists pouring broken glass in front of his path, yelling in his face, cursing him out and calling him a “f–king fascist.”

    The mayor of Portland was left struggling to breathe when federal agents hit him with tear gas after a crowd of angry protesters threw shrapnel at his feet as they demanded the city official resign during a Wednesday night demonstration. Mayor Ted Wheeler scrambled to put goggles on after the noxious gas was used on crowds of Black Lives Matter protesters outside the city's federal courthouse. Wheeler told The New York Times: 'I’m not going to lie — it stings; it’s hard to breathe. And I can tell you with 100 percent honesty, I saw nothing which provoked this response.'...

    When some of the protesters and potential rioters showed up in downtown Portland, Oregon last night holding signs reading “Tear Gas Ted,” I’m pretty sure they were assigning that nickname to Mayor Wheeler, not issuing instructions to law enforcement. But the DHS officers deployed to protect the federal courthouse may have taken their signage seriously. In the wee hours of this morning, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was indeed tear-gassed by the feds while he stood at the front of the mob challenging the barrier erected around the courthouse. From the sound of things, he handled the gas pretty well....

    The top prosecutor in Philidelphia is warning that any federal agents sent to his city will face criminal charges if they assault or kidnap protesters. District Attorney Larry Krasner says his dad volunteered to fight “fascism” in World War II “so we would not have an American president brutalizing and kidnapping Americans for exercising their constitutional rights.” Did you know it was a “constitutional right” to throw a bottle or attack a law enforcement officer? I learn something new every day. Krasner would love nothing better than to make good on his threat. From Bloomberg: Trump’s dare to deploy additional...

    Donald Trump is set to escalate his federal intervention in cities Wednesday by expanding 'Operation Legend,' deploying FBI and other agents to Chicago and Albuquerque to quell what he claims is out of control violence. The move was to be announced Wednesday afternoon by Trump at the White House - putting him once again at odds with Democratic mayors, especially Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. They have opposed deploying federal forces to tackle protests. But Operation Legend, which was started in Kansas City, MO, involves surging Department of Justice, not Department of Homeland Security, agents to tackle crime rather then protests.
