From notable center-right magazine "Time." Vance is from Alabama, which is deeply conservative.

Trump's use of federal agents in NorthWest US, Portland, may go beyond what is lawful. Here's how we can get answers about what's going on

...President Trump conflated two very different roles for federal law enforcement, mentioning in one breath the deployment of federal agents against protestors in Portland and surging federal agents to do enforcement work in cities with high violent crime rates.

Responding to a reporter’s question about presidential responsibility for violent crime in cities like Chicago, he said, “We can solve the problem very easily. We’re equipped with the best equipment, the best people. And you see what we’re doing. I mean, Portland was coming down. It was busting at the seams. And we went in and protected all the federal buildings.”

The sight we have seen in Portland over the last week, federal agents in unmarked cars and paramilitary uniforms on American streets — shooting rubber bullets and tear gas at protestors — is a shocking one.

It follows federal law enforcement using “smoke canisters and pepper balls” against protesters in June when U.S. Park Police cleared protestors in Washington, D.C.’s Lafayette Park so the President could have a photo op in front of St. John’s church. Although the Administration justified the federal presence in D.C. under its special federal jurisdiction in the nation’s capital and the federal government does have jurisdiction to protect its facilities and buildings, these excessive actions are a questionable exercise of the executive branch discretion and may well go beyond what is lawful.

Even if they are legal, the use of federal law enforcement capabilities against citizens exercising their rights, whether in Washington D.C., Portland or elsewhere, should not be equated with normal law enforcement activity.

But there we were with Trump at the podium.

The President didn’t explicitly call protestors—including the lullaby-singing wall of moms—who were exercising their First Amendment rights, criminals, but there was an implicit comparison. We should be concerned about that. Trump is often most clear about his intentions when he is off script, answering questions as he was when he made these comments.

Great quote from the story:

 

 

They’re so effective that on Friday night, federal agents frustrated at being caught in up in a redirected cloud of tear gas, showed up to the demonstration with their own handheld blowers. The leaf-blower wars were on.

 

 

It's like something from a Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker movie.

I'm surprised. Trump visited his fence, and it withstood his hot air test.

"But the border wall is truly our first line of defense, and it’s probably, if you think about it, our first and last, other than the great ICE agents and other people — moving people out.  It will save thousands and thousands of lives, save taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars by reducing crime, drug flow, welfare fraud, and burdens on schools and hospitals.  The wall will save hundreds of billions of dollars — many, many times what it’s going to cost."

 

- D. (Dummy) J. Trump

I like Gestrumpo, the Gestapo has a more sinister cachet than the more generic Stormtroopers.
