The Republican Party of States' Rights and Law-And-Order seems to be having trouble sticking to its principles when it comes to the state of Oregon.
Here is Chad Wolf, ACTING Director of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sounding very pro-STRONG federal government and anti-states' rights, by defending the right of its officers to act outside the law, kidnap citizens off the streets in unmarked vans, without identifying themselves or wearing identifiers on their uniforms, and use the Insurrection Act without actually officially invoking it.
Keep in mind, Wolf has not even been confirmed by the Senate in his role as Secretary of DHS. No one has officially taken over that role since Kirstjen Nielsen left the department. But this is how Trump gets his nazis into power. He drives out the ones who were awful, but fell on just this side of confirmable, then replaces them with someone who is an "Acting" (fill-in-the-blank) who is quite literally simply an authoritarian yes-person.
This is Chad Wolf. Chad is the acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. He is responsible for the gestapo style police tactics being used in Oregon. Chad went to college on a tennis scholarship and he graduated with a B.S. in history from Southern Methodist ... pic.twitter.com/KRAAfOdHuI

This is all set up for election week and if you don't understand that you are not in the same fight as these MF's.
Chad Wolf...google him.
No qualification to be DHS Secretary. None at all.
But he'll do whatever Barr/Trump tell him and that's the point. https://t.co/DGy9U7Dzzc

I offered a service that they declined but I’m still gonna give it to them. Sounds a bit rapey.
