Has anyone heard about the impending us House resolution 6666? Called the TRACE act for Testing, Reach And Contacting Everyone. Could have far reaching issues such as folks lawfully entering our homes and testing us, with less than accurate results, but nonetheless removing any members of the family who test positive.

Might be a good time to call our representatives?

Portland is sinking into the abyss, whilst everyone jaws over modern roots' fate.

Jake Johnson wrote:Oregon's Democratic governor and other state lawmakers are demanding that President Donald Trump immediately remove all federal law enforcement officials from the streets of Portland after alarming video footage posted online late Thursday showed unidentified officers dressed in combat fatigues arresting Black Lives Matter protesters without explanation and throwing them into unmarked vehicles.

"This political theater from President Trump has nothing to do with public safety," Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said in a statement. "The president is failing to lead this nation. Now he is deploying federal officers to patrol the streets of Portland in a blatant abuse of power by the federal government."


Jake Johnson wrote:Video footage and first-hand accounts of unidentified federal law enforcement officials snatching up Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Oregon and throwing them into unmarked vehicles drew nationwide attention and outrage Friday, with members of Congress, human rights groups, and journalists accusing the Trump administration of deploying "secret police" to crush dissent.

Federal law enforcement officials from the U.S. Marshals Service and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have reportedly been patrolling downtown Portland in unmarked vehicles and detaining demonstrators without explanation since at least July 14 as protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd continue on a nightly basis across the city.


Sergio Olmos and Mike Baker wrote:Federal agents dressed in camouflage and tactical gear have taken to the streets of Portland in unmarked vans, seizing and detaining protesters and unleashing tear gas in what Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon has called “a blatant abuse of power.”

Since their arrival with the goal of tamping down persistent unrest, federal officers have shot one protester in the head with an apparent impact munition, leaving the man with severe head injuries and producing the image of blood dripping on Portland’s streets.


Democrats are apparently outraged, but then it's an election year, isn't it?
