Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli revealed that a rioter in Portland, Oregon was arrested with materials used to create a pipe bomb on Saturday night.
Cuccinelli shared an image of the rioter’s terrorist paraphernalia on his Twitter Sunday, announcing that the rioter would face federal criminal charges for his possession of the destructive device.

Customs and Border Patrol official Mark Morgan confirmed that the thus-unnamed rioter had been arrested on Sunday morning not only with pipe bomb paraphernalia, but a machete and a knife
Morgan staunchly rejected any description of Portland’s criminal rioters as protestors, making it clear that the riotous thugs had no right to attack federal law enforcement and terrorize the community. The rioters staged a siege of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland, vandalizing the federal building and coating it with graffiti.
Portland ANTIFA has staged some of the most vicious criminal riots and political terrorism in the country, having rioted in the city’s streets for what some officials have claimed to be 38 straight days. Reporter Andy Ngo has documented the terrorist group’s crimes, exposing them deploying laser devices in the direction of a police headquarters building to blind law enforcement.

“We are doing disservice to peaceful lawful protestors when we call these individuals protestors. They’re not. They’re criminal thugs with an agenda.”
Rioting in downtown Portland by antifa. They came fully equipped with shields and explosive fireworks. Federal police (not @PortlandPolice) have used CS gas to forcibly disperse them. It’s working and antifa hate it. pic.twitter.com/MA8f3BRLzO

The Department of Justice is expected to announce criminal charges against the alleged bomb-wielding terrorist on Sunday, naming the criminal suspect.
Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats
Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.
Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.
Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.
Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.
Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.
“Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.
Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.
Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
