Oregon Attorney General Sues Homeland Security, Federal Agencies Over Arrests of ANTIFA Rioters

The rioters have systematic privileges.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum filed a lawsuit against four federal agencies on Friday, claiming that federal law enforcement is infringing upon the First Amendment by making arrests at Portland riots in which ANTIFA-linked militants have been observed engaging in violent activity, property destruction, and a wide range of crimes.

Rosenblum is suing the United States Department of Homeland Security, the United States Marshals Service, the United States Customs and Border Protection, the Federal Protection Service. The Democrat is seeking an injunction that will strip the various federal agencies of their powers of arrest in the city, leaving Portland to the whims of violent criminal rioters who have waged destruction on the city streets for fifty consecutive days. The Portland Police has been called off of riot control by Portland authorities, who seek to provide the leftist rioters a license for their activities.

Rosenblum is claiming that the federal government is engaging in “unlawful law enforcement in violation of the civil rights of Oregonians by seizing and detaining them without probable cause.” Liberals rose up in figurative arms when video emerged of federal law enforcement arresting criminal suspects in Portland’s left-wing riots and protests, which have raged for fifty days. Those new to the situation in Portland are generally unaware that criminal rioters have systematically attacked a federal courthouse, attacked police officers, and been arrested with improvised explosive devices.

DHS Secretary Chad Wolf has pledged that federal authorities will continue to safeguard federal facilities such as the Hatfield Courthouse from violent extremists, in defiance of the mandates from liberal Portland and Oregon civic officials. The rioters have continued to attack the courthouse and engage in property destruction as of Friday night.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
