The chaos in Portland seems to be meeting an enemy, and no thanks to their Mayor, Ted Wheeler.
“Federal law enforcement officers have been using unmarked vehicles to drive around downtown Portland and detain protesters since at least July 14,” Oregon Public Broadcasting reported Thursday. “Personal accounts and multiple videos posted online show the officers driving up to people, detaining individuals with no explanation of why they are being arrested, and driving off.”
It appears the feds have decided that enough is enough. If mayor Wheeler won’t protect the people then the feds will.

A lady in the background can be heard repeatedly yelling “Use your words” and “we’ll get you out”.
Some are suggesting they may have actually just been nabbing an informant since there was no confrontation or words spoken between the feds and the man arrested.
“The tactic appears to be another escalation in federal force deployed on Portland city streets, as federal officials and President Donald Trump have said they plan to ‘quell’ nightly protests outside the federal courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center that have lasted for more than six weeks,”
Portland has been a violent and destructive mess but Mayor Ted Wheeler has refused any federal offers to help quell the violence.
Something tells me Portland won't be getting any federal funds to rebuild as the Democrat run city has stood by and watched for about 50 days as buildings were destroyed and innocent people assaulted.
The Daily Wire has a list, from the Department of Homeland Security, of the violence that has taken place in Portland at the hands of the leftists.
