In US news and current events today, Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley has a dire warning for Americans who are seeing the chaos unfold in Portland. The federal troops breaking up the Portland protests, attacking Portland moms and even a Portland Navy vet in Portland, Oregon under the orders of President Donald Trump continue to be challenged by a Portland wall of moms. Calling themselves the Portland Moms Brigade or Mom Brigade, the Portland mom brigade continues to face off with President Trump Stormtroopers. The Federal police in Portland, Stormtroopers, some have called them, have been abducting protesters and shoving them into a Portland Federal officers van, much to the glee of President Donald J. Trump. However, secret police without identification are a serious step towards fascism, but as long as the Portland moms are on the side of the good guys, they're going to have quite a fight on their hands. That's why Oregon Senator Merkley has condemned President Trump for his, unconstitutional use of federal forces and federal troops to crack down on the peaceful Portland protests. These are tactics used by a dictator and a fascist, and are not acceptable in a free democracy.
