... because of course there'd be a Russian with a bomb.

No wonder Trump's fine with escalation; cops are probably the only people staying at his hotel.  Plus, it partially explains why the NYPD has been so out of control.

These are not pictures out of Washington DC, though you could be forgiven for making that mistake. Little green men do all tend to look alike.

Elite SWAT teams from the Border Patrol and sniper-trained units from ICE have also descended upon Washington.

Why in chocolate covered F*CK do border patrol agents need snipers??

We are the frog in the pot of water and they are slowly turning up the heat.

So they don't have to get out of the truck when they see a family struggling across the desert and want to "be sure".

I don't know if you've ever been to the canadian border. But there is a whole lot of nothing between a whole lot more nothing. Who wants to walk all that way when one of their illegal moose come down here?

I won't lie, if I turned on the news and found out that a howling mob had set Trump Tower on fire...

No I wouldn't probably, I would absolutely get out my 21 year scotch and raise a glass to them.

Oh, yeah, totally. No one has noticed, like, at all.

All of this is known to be exactly the wrong things to do to deescalate a situation.

Make no mistake, they aren't forking this up out of incompetence.

They are actively and intentionally making things worse.

They want riots and violence.

They want people to start killing cops.

And the cops are fine with it, because it lets them do what they love - use force and violence to cause pain and suffering, and when some of their brothers die (because the victim will always be someone else in the mind of the fascist cannon fodder) that will just allow them to step up the violence even further.

And that's when the system breaks down, which is what the fascists want, because that is when they solidify their hold on power.

It takes 1300 troops on the Southern side alone before Donnie feels safe enough to piss outside the bunker?

Border Patrol far from a border?

The immigrants will start working the border jobs 'Muricans don't want to do.

Sometimes , it goes the other way too.

The show of force outside the White House is a task force operation that includes U.S. Secret Service, National Guard, Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Park Police, according to the internal Department of Homeland Security report, dated June 4. They aren't the only ones in town: Border Patrol, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Transportation Security Administration, National Guard, Coast Guard, Federal Protective Service

Amusing.  Even under conditions where every cop is actively engaging in rioting and anti-american insurrection and just looking to bust some heads, somehow Trump's cachet is still so completely lacking that he couldn't get any real law enforcement to visibly support him directly.

That's, like, almost a complete list of people employed by the federal government who can be drafted into law enforcement roles in a pinch but aren't actually cops, have no real law enforcement training, and in every case but the national guard and the Secret Service literally couldn't become cops if they wanted because even by the low standards of American police they mostly couldn't pass the background check or educational/fitness requirements.

Transportation Security Administration... Jesus, the coward couldn't even garner support of the actual fully qualified mall cops?  That's super pitiful.  What a weak leader.

He's not only the most cowardly president we've ever had, he's more cowardly than anyone I've ever known.

The scary thing about this list is how much motivation, time and effort went into scouring every agency of the federal government for anyone who could be scooped up to suddenly do a job they're unqualified to do. This took hundreds of hours of work on the part of cult members and "I just do what I'm told" employees.
