Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan slammed Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and the city’s government failure to secure the Hatfield Federal Courthouse from left-wing criminal rioters, when speaking to FOX News on two occasions this week.
Morgan strongly rejected Wheeler’s demands that federal personnel leave the city of Portland, pointing out the criminal threat directed towards the courthouse on a nightly basis.
“That’s not going to happen — and that’s what this is about. It’s not about all of the political talking points. It’s straightforward. It’s about law and order. It’s about criminals that are attacking a federal facility and have attempted night after night to burn it to the ground and they have assaulted federal agents night after night after night,” said Morgan.
Wheeler continues to blame federal law enforcement for the criminal conduct of rioters targeting the courthouse, even as the neoliberal mayor was brutally abused and mocked by the so-called protestors himself when he joined them for a night of riots at the courthouse.
Morgan was even more blunt about Wheeler’s failure of leadership when following up on his remarks on Thursday.
“That’s not a leader; that’s a ten-year old,” said the CBP chief of Wheeler.
President Donald Trump also called out Wheeler’s irresponsibility during an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday. “Mayor Wheeler. And he’s—he made a fool out of himself. He wanted to be among the people, so he went into the crowd, and they knocked the hell out of him. That was the end of him. So it was pretty pathetic.”
Watch Wheeler’s first set of remarks on the lawlessness and abdication of leadership on the part of Portland’s officials:
President Trump Announces Planned Ban on Chinese-Owned TikTok App
The app has serious spying concerns.
President Donald Trump announced that he’s preparing to ban the video app TikTok on national security grounds on Friday, citing the concerns over the Chinese app’s connections to Chinese government security, and the potential use of the nominally innocent app to surveil American citizens.
The President had made the announcement on an Air Force One flight to the press pool, later confirming that the media could report on the policy move on the record.
“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” said the President bluntly.
TikTok is a viral video app marketed to teenagers and young adults that allows users to create short and edited videos. It’s frequently used for memes, pranks, and simple political content. It’s owned by Chinese company ByteDance, which is obligated to cooperate with Chinese intelligence services under the laws of China.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had previously spoken of security concerns involving the Chinese app. Microsoft had recently offered to purchase the app from its parent company, but the surveillance and security surrounding it appear to have shelved such a possibility for now.
There are genuine surveillance and data-mining concerns with TikTok, but it’s also probably worth considering that banning the app will allow neoliberal tech monopolies such as Facebook and Apple to share up an even larger share of the demand for platforms designed for similar content.
