Most readers know that Portland has been a cauldron of violence and unrest for years.

It’s the de facto American capital of Antifa, and it’s also a place where the Marxist anarchists who back Black Lives Matter also feel at home.

The unrest there has grown dramatically since the George Floyd incident in May.

In fact, Portland has suffered through more than 90 days’ worth of unrest, violence, death, and murder.

And why? Because the Left-wing Democrats who run the city and are charged with meting out ‘justice’ are missing in action.

When Mayor Ted Wheeler isn’t making excuses for the anarchists and blaming his police officers, Multnomah County Commie DA Mike Schmidt is refusing to charge almost all of the rioters with…rioting.

It’s their ‘free speech,’ you see.

Well, after the Trump administration spent a month defending a federal courthouse in the city, it is taking a new tact that bypasses the chaos-enabling Marxist Schmidt altogether, as The Epoch Times reports:

Oregon State Police (OSP) personnel sent to Portland in a renewed bid to end the unrest there have been federally deputized, a spokesman confirmed to The Epoch Times. …

State police have worked with the U.S. Attorney's Office to review arrests made by troopers for potential prosecution.

Seventy-six people arrested in relation to Portland unrest have been charged on a federal level, a Department of Justice spokeswoman said this week. Approximately 774 arrests have been made since May 28, according to city and federal data reviewed by The Epoch Times.

'Most of OSP resources assigned to Portland have been cross deputized by the U.S. Marshals' Service, Capt. Timothy Fox, the spokesman, said in an emailed statement on Wednesday.

'OSP is not criticizing any officials and we respect the authority of the District Attorney, but to meet the Governor's charge of bringing violence to an end we will use all lawful methods at our disposal,' he added.

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced a new policy last month that guides prosecutors to presumptively decline to pursue some charges against those arrested during protests and riots, including disorderly conduct and interfering with officers.

The decision triggered the withdrawal of state troopers the next day, Fox told The Epoch Times. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, sent state police back to Portland over the weekend after a man was shot dead in the city.

Brown has turned down offers of federal assistance. She appealed to law enforcement agencies in adjacent counties to send personnel, an appeal rejected by sheriffs and a police department.

A spokesman for Schmidt's office said he was looking into the deputization matter.

Translation: By federally deputizing Oregon State Police, the U.S. Marshal’s Service has effectively erected a bypass around Schmidt’s office so that federal charges can be filed against serial rioters who, up to now, have been allowed time and again to get away with what amounts to domestic terrorism.

And for the record, anyone convicted of a federal offense does the entire sentence because there is no parole in the federal system.

President Trump has pledged to bring law and order to Portland one way or the other.
