Federal dossiers on arrested Portland protesters named their friends, family, reviews disclose

Source: The Oregonian

By Maxine Bernstein | The Oregonian/OregonLive

Homeland Security’s top leaders initially wanted federal agents to compile intelligence reports — dubbed “baseball cards” -- on “everyone participating” in Portland’s racial justice protests in 2020, according to new information made public Thursday.

After an intelligence head warned they needed to narrow the scope of the reports, they forged ahead and produced dossiers on people arrested during the demonstrations who had nothing to do with threats to federal officers or homeland security, according to unredacted federal reviews of the intelligence gathering released by U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

Some of the improper intelligence reports went so far as to include the personal interests of the arrestees and the names of their friends and family based on scans of their social media profiles, the internal reviews noted.

A review by Homeland Security’s Office of General Counsel pointed to Brian Murphy, then the department’s acting under secretary of intelligence and analysis, as directing much of the misguided intelligence gathering and said Murphy’s subordinates were afraid to challenge him.

13. What do you mean by that? Are you talking about a second violent insurrection? ...

Only one run by “our” side? Do you think that kind of thing is a good idea?

What you said is a bit unclear, reymega life — January 6 is not an election day, or an inauguration day — the only association that date has is that we had a violent insurrection on that date in 2021.

Please explain. Otherwise, enjoy your stay.

9. I've said it before and I will say it again...

Back in the days of the Wiemar Republic in 1920s Germany, when Hitler and his crazies did the Beer Hall Putsch and tried to take over the government, the German justice system, including law enforcement officers and judges, winked and slapped the perps lightly on their dainty little wrists.

When the left demonstrated in Germany, using the Blutmai demonstrations of 1929 as an example, the Berlin police reacted brutally, actually firing into crowds of unarmed civilians.

****************

So, fast forward a century in time to 'Murika. The BLM people were just saying, "Hey, don't kill our kids - our lives matter too!" My family members demonstrated in the capitol of my state, and demonstrations happened all over the US. Tear gas, rubber bullets, NSA 'dossiers' and arrests.

The Trump-o-fascists storming the Capitol January 6? Not so much. No riot gear. No loaded guns. No backup from the National Guard, or other police. Nothing. Just a bunch of 'good people' filled with that peculiar version of Trump-love smearing feces on the walls of the Capitol, looting the offices, constructing scaffolds, threatening the lives of Congress..............but, hey, folks, it isn't serious!

Happily we are seeing some real consequences for the TRAITORS of January 6, but the initial reaction of law enforcement? RIGHT OUT OF 1920s GERMANY.

So the moral of this story is that any time any group of people EVER makes reasonable requests for equitable treatment under law, better wages, better benefits, to unionize and other aspects of social and economic justice, the powers that be (I lovingly call these people BILLIONAIRE PARASITES) ALWAYS react swiftly, harshly, violently.

Because, hey, shareholder profits come BEFORE ALL ELSE. And I'm not just saying that either. 'Profits over people' is codified in American Law (MI Supreme Court, 1919, Dodge Bros v Henry Ford - the Dodge brothers sued Ford when he raised the wages of his factory workers enough so they could buy the cars they built on the basis that 'excessive wages' deprived them of PROFITS to which they were ENTITLED as shareholders. AND THEY WON). This legal doctrine is called Primacy of the Shareholder.

In our world, people, money is ALWAYS counted as being more important than our lives. Always. That is what capitalism is about.

11. Thank you

for telling the COMPLETE story of Henry Ford daring to pay his workers more so they could afford his cars.
No one ever tells the complete story of the Share Holders going after him for "Not Maximizing Profits" and winning in court...........

It isn't going to end well..

10. Shades of J. Edgar.....

he had files on thousands of "communist" protesters, including myself I believe. I was told by two different, unacquainted people that I had a file anyway. Nothing ever came of it.
