The Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) is the tactical unit of the US Border Patrol. Their mission is "to respond to terrorist threats of all types anywhere in the world in order to protect our nation’s homeland”. Formed in, wait for it, 1984, BORTAC has steadily expanded its scope and mission capabilities. The Bush administration expanded the border patrol to 20,000 members and increased its budget to the $5bn it is today.

~

This is the same unit that was recently deployed in Portland. BORTAC typically has

additional gear such as stun grenades and enhanced Special-Forces-type training, including sniper certification. The officers typically conduct high-risk operations targeting individuals who are known to be violent, many of them with extensive criminal records.

.
This type of thuggery has been going on in Black and Brown communities for a very long time.

Bates said he believed the number of cases pursued by the Gun Trace Task Force [in Baltimore] helped explode the number of shootings and deaths in the city. Nine members of the elite police unit have been convicted or pleaded guilty to corruption that included robbery and extortion, planting evidence and illegal searches and seizures of Baltimoreans.

.
It has been said that sending in BORTAC to handle protests is Rumps way of garnering votes from middle class women who, Republicans think, do not want non-White people moving into their neighborhoods.

Donald Trump and his enablers know that women. for as long as there have been efforts toward desegregation, white women have defended the status quo. These women have been loud and insistent, maybe because those protests have long been one of the few places where anger doesn’t immediately render a woman unfeminine and unattractive, strident or shrill. An angry white woman has always been a “nasty woman”— unless she’s a mama bear, standing up for her kids and their schools and neighborhoods.

Thus President Trump’s recent provocative tweet to “the Suburban Housewives of America,” warning “Biden will destroy your neighborhood and your American Dream.”

Mr. Trump’s re-election depends, at least in part, on white suburban women still feeling that way.

But if recent protests and nonfiction best-seller lists are any indication, at least some “housewives” have arrived at a more nuanced understanding of racial dynamics and have harnessed the potent, symbolic power of white motherhood to advocate for change. Simsbury, for example, now has a Facebook group called Holding the Door Open, “for people within greater Simsbury CT who are open, ready and willing to discuss, share and grow in their understanding of racism, white privilege and exclusion in our community and within America.”

.
So there is that. Anything for election. But still, the force and techniques that these "special forces" are using in Portland do not belong in a democracy, or even in what little is left of it.

The question, in my mind, is, is it too late? The PTB are hyper organized as witnessed in their response to the Portland protesters. They have been prepping for this, certainly since the Sanctuary Movement. Now they are honing their skills on Portland protesters.

This is what Democracy looks like...

Is it too late to change things via elections, via legislation? What are our options? Time is short. The Climate Crisis will not wait.

The thread is open…

Remaking society requires dramatic changes. We are witnessing the universe instituting great changes to our world. August will be volatile, which will move into the September/October time frame of re-making, re-tooling, re-thinking, re-creating, re-flecting, re-organizing, etc. our society in a movement way. November will be explosive. Can't you just feel the excitement in the air? I'm beside myself in anticipation!

It will take a few years, but by 2026, we will notice that the Aquarian Age is, indeed, our path forward. It has been a struggle ridding ourselves of the Piscean age, which has been dominated by top down heirarchy and power. The Aquarian Age is the age of information. Nothing is secret anymore. All information is available at your fingertips. Where the Piscean age was organized in a vertical, up and down structure of hierarchies, the Aquarian Age is organized in a horizontal network, opening the world up to true equality.

Be to be. Have a pleasant day. Pleasantry

is that El Trumpo has finally realized he can't win, and the only way to avoid losing is if the election never happens.
But the election is going to happen.
Biden will win without ever leaving his basement, so they won't have to swap candidates after the convention. He might actually make it to Inauguration Day. "Honey, why are we here? Who are all these people?", "Just repeat what this nice man says.". The next day he resigns and we get whoever was chosen as his running mate.
El Trumpo makes a state visit to Russia the week before Inauguration and never comes back. He retires to a big, beautiful home somewhere and spends his days on the Internet railing against his enemies. Maybe Russia will be nice and let Air Force One fly back.

thanks for wondering.
Biden has said that he's (or whomever is actually running his campaign) going to pick a woman as VP. I'm just hoping it isn't Clinton. I'm not 100% sure it will be someone we know, they may take this opportunity to slip in someone who has no public record, who would never get elected herself, and would be even worse than the other possible choices.

happening. A very weird but yet highly normal and routine state of affairs. (Ever wonder why weird is spelled that way? Is it just to be weird? Too early in the day for etymology, so later for that.)

BORTAC,

to respond to terrorist threats of all types anywhere in the world in order to protect our nation’s homeland

so our homeland and it's borders are now anywhere in the world? We know, from Portland, that graffiti are terrorist threats, so these thugs are on the lookout for global graffiti, ready to respond with the violent, armed, terrorism that they perpetrate wherever spray paint and waterproof markers are sold? I really don't doubt it.

We are the global terrorists, we, our military, the CIA, and now, it would appear, the bullies from bortac, catchy. "bort" is small trashy non-gem quality diamonds used as an abrasive, so there that is.

What are our options? Time is short. The Climate Crisis will not wait.

I never spell weird right. Have to go back and change it. Originally spelled werd.

You may know today's word as a generalized term describing something unusual, but weird also has older meanings that are more specific. Weird derives from the Old English noun wyrd, essentially meaning "fate." By the 8th century, the plural wyrde had begun to appear in texts as a gloss for Parcae, the Latin name for the Fates—three goddesses who spun, measured, and cut the thread of life. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Scots authors employed werd or weird in the phrase "weird sisters" to refer to the Fates. William Shakespeare adopted this usage in Macbeth, in which the "weird sisters" are depicted as three witches. Subsequent adjectival use of weird grew out of a reinterpretation of the weird used by Shakespeare.

I thought you knew that "our" borders were just about everywhere. Look around. How'd ya miss that. Lol

Take good care and have a werd good one.

Let’s Impeach The President

What Bush allowed to happen in New Orleans after Katrina seems pretty damned racist to me. Just watching a few seconds of this brought tears to me eyes. Again. I cannot understand how he wasn't impeached for his response, but of course he wasn't alone. Do imagine if Osama had blown up the levies and caused all those deaths.

Bush's invasion of Iraq was also pretty damned racist since it was just 'Muslims' and other minorities who were killed and of course anyone protecting their country from the invaders are terrorists and insurgents. Bull!

But I doubt I was alone watching as Bush shredded the constitution with nary a word from democrats. And Nancy of course knew that there were no WMDs in Iraq and that Bush/Cheney had been torturing 'folks', but since the country had just been through impeachment with Clinton for lying under oath she didn't want to look like she was doing tit for tat. But she did impeach Trump for not immediately sending lethal weapons to Ukraine that even Obama refused to do. And are still sitting in a warehouse because they can't be used on the front line. Oops. How many people even know that?

Remember color coded terror alerts to influence policies and the elections. Remember being told we need to go out and buy plastic and duct tape to protect us from anthrax after a few congress members who did not want to vote for the patriot act were sent some in the mail? Did you know that Biden wrote the damn patriot act in 1995? Why did he feel he needed to write that that pretty much revoked our civil liberties and that has been left for Trump/Barr to use as they see fit?

Trump is a horrible person and a worse president that is doing untold damage to the country. But so did Obama who actually did some things that were worse. As did Clinton who got the rest of GHWB's policies passed with nary a word from the democratic base.

Preaching to the choir I know, but I am flabbergasted that George has been rehabilitated by the centrists just because he said some mean about Trump. Those same centrists are cheering every video that the Lincoln Project makes about Trump even though it is made up from the people who got us into Iraq and they are damn selective about what they think Trump is doing wrong. IMO it is basically because Trump has taken the mask of our imperialism and being captured by the power elite. Electing Biden won't do a damn thing to reverse what Trump has done, but try telling people that. It was because of Biden's, Obama's and democrat's actions for the last 4 decades that made a Trump even possible.

Just saying. Watch the video if you've luckily have forgotten how bad the Shrub was.

how easy it is to divide people, we fall for it every time. Margaret Kimberly makes the point in a BAR article;

Craven black misleaders jumped at the chance to side with white corporate power against radical white allies.

The misleaders do know their people however, and they are well aware that claims of white people undoing the movement would resonate. E.D. Mondainé is president of the Portland branch of the NAACP. As such he has access to the Washington Post editorial page and used his opportunity to do some classic misleading. He opined that demonstrations had become “spectacle” which drew attention away from police violence. “What are antifa and other leftist agitators achieving for the cause of black equality?” was one of his questions. One might ask what the Portland NAACP had ever achieved in this regard, but that didn’t stop him from condemning white people who are not limiting their actions to the realm of respectability politics.

A House Divided Against Itself....and all that. I looks like we will all just end up squabbling against each other.

After years of scorn about the notion of white allyship we are finally seeing it in action. This columnist has advised white people to be like John Brown if they wanted to be allies. We are seeing people who may not share Brown’s fate, but they go where some of us fear to tread.

I don't think the message has gotten out though. In a game where there are winners and losers, the losers make it way to easy for the winners.

The announcement of the so-called en banc hearing means that the remarkable dispute over the DOJ’s dismissal request will rage on for at least a few more weeks. And it will allow the full D.C. Circuit — often dubbed the second most powerful court in the country — to wade into the thorny issue of what judges can and can’t do in the face of evidence that the Department of Justice has suspect motivations for its prosecutorial decisions.

The D.C. Circuit will hear oral arguments on the matter on August 11. In the meantime, the order from a three-judge appellate panel that Flynn’s case immediately be dismissed has been reversed.

Flynn and his judge, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, have been engaged in an extraordinary battle over whether Sullivan has the authority to hold off on granting the DOJ request that Flynn’s case be dismissed.

The Justice Department announced it was dropping its prosecution — where Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his Russia contacts — in May. Rather than immediately grant the request, Sullivan invited outside parties to weigh in on what he should do.

More info has come out that shows how Strzok and Page totally set up Flynn which led to the whole farcical Russia investigation. And that Comey, Biden, Obama and Strzok knew that Flynn had done nothing wrong in talking to Russia after Trump won the investigation. Strzok notes actually says just that and that Biden questioned whether they could go after him for the Logan act. I'll look for the link to that story. Here's another one.

https://thefederalist.com/2020/07/23/declassified-documents-show-fbi-use...

Newly declassified internal Federal Bureau of Investigation documents prove the top U.S. law enforcement agency used a so-called defensive briefing of the Trump campaign in 2016 to spy on and collect information about Donald Trump himself. The new documents, which are just the latest in a string of declassifications regarding the FBI operation to spy on the Trump campaign and later the Trump administration, detail the FBI’s attempts to use a briefing ostensibly meant to warn the Trump campaign about foreign intelligence threats to spy on the Trump campaign itself.

The August 17, 2016 meeting came the day after the FBI opened a formal counterintelligence investigation against Flynn and just two days after FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok texted his former lover, FBI attorney Lisa Page, about an “insurance policy” he had designed to keep Trump from becoming president.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy [McCabe]’s office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok texted Page on August 15, 2016. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40….”

The very next day Strzok opened an investigation of Flynn then used the pretext of a defensive intelligence briefing to collect intelligence on both Flynn and Trump on August 17.

Instead of warning Trump that Russia was being naughty they used the meeting to spy on him. Obama actually did do the deed of spying on Trump and his campaign and they got warrants to do so by lying to the FISA court about Carter Page not working as a CIA asset. The information was actually criminally changed to show that. One person is under criminal indictment for that.

Plus I am seeing centrists doing all they can to spread propaganda about the Durham investigation into the origins of Russia Gate. The chief propagandist is tying it Pizza Gate and Q Anon. It is flat out falsehoods or lying if you must and of course I am seeing lots of people buying into it.

The 33% retraction of the economy that came out today? It is Putin's fault. He wants Trump to destroy the country from the inside. I am seeing democrats and republicans doing just that by not expanding UI benefits. Maybe democrats are working for Putin too? Sure. That makes as much sense as everything else they have come up with.

This was an attempted coup d'tat from the Obama administration and from Hillary's campaign. How sweet to get your party's IA to do opposition research on your opponent at our expense. But her emails, right? How far Barr is going to go with will be interesting. From what I have seen what was done to Trump is far more serious that Nixon's watergate fiasco. But since we are no longer a nation of laws for the elite class I expect just a lot of noise and this will end up like the Mueller report. People will read it and see what they want to see that fits their thoughts.

The full extent of the Nixon/GOP dirty tricks in 1971-72 remains unknown. One reason may be that it was successful in getting Nixon his landslide win; whereas, "Russiagate" failed in its intended purpose to defeat Trump.

Pientka later took part in the FBI’s 2017 interview of Flynn, which became the basis of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case against Flynn. Following the discovery of exculpatory documents that had previously been suppressed by the government, the DOJ moved to dismiss all charges against Flynn. A top federal appellate court panel ordered Emmett G. Sullivan, the judge overseeing Flynn’s case, to dismiss the charges against Flynn, but Sullivan has thus far refused to comply.

Pientka’s account of the meeting was approved by Strzok and former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith. According to the DOJ OIG, Clinesmith fabricated evidence against Carter Page to ensure that a warrant to spy on him would be approved by the federal spy court. Rather than inform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that Carter Page had previously worked with a U.S. intelligence agency in its successful efforts to capture and prosecute Russian intelligence officers working against the United States, Clinesmith allegedly changed an e-mail from that intelligence agency to eliminate the agency’s confirmation that Page had worked with them against the Russians.

The Clinesmith information was disclosed to congress by Horowitz a few months ago and so was the information that the FBI did not give Flynn's defense everything that they should have. The case against Flynn was a horrible injustice. He is said to have only to plead guilty so that they wouldn't go after his son. I don't remember if Flynn is charged for not registering as a foreign lobbyist or it was his supposed perjury that he was charged for. I still don't know how any info dug up after the bogus information that got the FISA warrants in the first place isn't fruit of the poison tree.
