Left-wing activists rioted in Portland on Friday night where they burned Bibles, set fires in the street, and tore protective boarding off of buildings.

The riots had cooled off on Thursday night as “federal and state officers located inside the courthouse were not forced to leave the building during the course of the night,” the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a statement.

On Friday night, rioters burned American flags and bibles in the streets outside the federal Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse in Portland.

Numerous journalists who were on the ground said that the left-wing activists were trying to provoke a response from the federal agents inside.

One journalist reported that rioters dumped garbage in front of one exit. “CBP clears the hazard and agitators begin to provoke a response from federal officers,” he wrote along with video of the incident.

“Agitators trying to provoke a response from federal officers,” the journalist added. “Violently battering the door with kicks and using their shield as a battering ram.”

Other videos posted online by journalist Andy Ngo show large fires being set in the street and rioters ripping protective boarding off of buildings.

“Rioters at gathering in Portland are tearing off barricades of an arcade nearby federal courthouse. Portland Police are aware but will let them continue because they’re given directive to leave rioters alone in most circumstances,” Ngo reported. “Black bloc militants in downtown Portland are trying to break into a business near the federal courthouse at the peaceful protest. They’re prying off the wood that is covering glass window.”

Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announced late this week that the federal government had come up with a plan to work with state and local law enforcement officials to quell the violence after local Democrat leaders had largely opposed DHS’s presence in protecting the federal courthouse.

“That plan includes a robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland,” Wolf said in a statement. “State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months.  Oregon State Police will coordinate with Federal Protective Service (FPS) officers to ensure all federal facilities remain protected and secure. ”

“This plan is possible due to the valiant efforts of the DHS law enforcement officers protecting federal property in Portland from violent activity for the past two months,” Wolf continued. “The Department will continue to maintain our current, augmented federal law enforcement personnel in Portland until we are assured that the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and other federal properties will no longer be attacked and that the seat of justice in Portland will remain secure.  This has been our mission and objective since the violent, criminal activity began.”

Corona Power Grab: Local Govts Given Power to Demolish Contaminated Buildings

In a stunning power grab by the British government, local councils are set to be empowered with the authority to demolish buildings that are deemed to be epicentres of Chinese coronavirus outbreaks throughout the country.

Published last month — with little fanfare — the Department of Health and Social Care’s “COVID-19 Contain Framework” laid out a series of laws, including the Coronavirus Act 2020, that local governments will be able to utilise in order to contain flare-ups of the Wuhan virus.

The document informed councils that under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984, they can apply to a magistrate “to impose restrictions or requirements to close contaminated premises; close public spaces in the area of the local authority; detain a conveyance or movable structure; disinfect or decontaminate premises; or order that a building, conveyance or structure be destroyed”.

The advice paper was unearthed this week by The Telegraph, which pointed out that the powers could result in the destruction of care homes, offices, factories, and even private homes if deemed necessary. Public transport vehicles such as buses and trains, privately-owned cars and even aeroplanes could be subject to government destruction, as well.

The advice also empowers councils to “close certain businesses and venues (for example shops, cafes, gyms, recreation centres, offices, labs, warehouses); close outdoor public areas (for example parks, playgrounds, beaches, esplanades, outdoor swimming pools) and order deep-cleans of buildings or vehicles linked to outbreaks”.

Local councils will be given the leeway to introduce local lockdown measures as well, which Boris Johnson’s government sees as preferable to the introduction of a second lockdown.

The local lockdown powers will include the ability to close or limit the activities of schools, and to set the age range for students allowed to attend classes. The councils will also be able to shut down or limit public events and gatherings, as well as being able to shut down businesses.
