Oakland/San Fran REFUSE to Oppose Terrorism by Working With FBI—No Joke!

If I were a terrorist I would make San Fran or Oakland my headquarters.  Not only do the people that live there have no problem with violence, bulling while trying to get rid of the police, they have gotten rid of the FBI.

“Oakland is following San Francisco and Portland in ending its relationship with the Joint Terror Task Force, an intelligence gathering arm of the FBI.

The Oakland City Council unanimously approved the termination of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Joint Terror Task Force on Tuesday night. The action had been recommended by the city’s Privacy Advisory Commission since last year.”

No cops, but terrorists are invited.  Seriously would you feel safe in either town?  Only if you had friends in ISIS.

Oakland pulls out of FBI’s Joint Terror Task Force

East Bay Citizen,  10/22/20 

Oakland is following San Francisco and Portland in ending its relationship with the Joint Terror Task Force, an intelligence gathering arm of the FBI.

The Oakland City Council unanimously approved the termination of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Joint Terror Task Force on Tuesday night. The action had been recommended by the city’s Privacy Advisory Commission since last year.

“We’re just asking you to defend Oakland values,” said Brian Hofer, a member of the Privacy Advisory Commission.

The council’s move does not preclude the FBI working with the Oakland Police Department,” Hofer added. “It would not prevent us from responding to a public safety threat. It would no prohibit OPD with speaking with or sharing information with the FBI. It would not disturb the FBI’s mandatory duty to warn us of a public safety threat.”

Oakland business owners of Yemeni descent, many who live and work in West Oakland, have felt targeted in the past by the federal government.

“No member of our community should live in fear,” said Councilmember Lynette Gibson McElhaney, who represents West Oakland. “We know since 9/11, our Islamic community has felt a great deal of stress and has not fully supported and protected by our government and have often felt targeted.”

San Francisco rescinded a similar agreement with the Joint Terror Task Force in 2017. Portland did so in 2019.

  1. What will happen is the same situation that was in the 1970’s with the Weather Underground (you know Obama and Bidens friends), Black Panthers, Symbioses Liberation Army, etc.

    Killing in the streets and destruction of private businesses. All of the above were Radical Socialists or Communist front organizations. Founded on the destruction of the nation and the creation of the Marxist Dictatorship of fantasy land.

    What has become dismaying is the cooperation of the Calif. AME Church in these areas. When will it end? Simple, just as it ended before. The crimes, killings, and property destruction became too great for the even the supposed radical leaders of Black, and Hispanic neighborhoods.

    The big losers are the bedrock businesses that supply jobs for the middle class that then drives down the entire state.

  2. At this point its hard to draw a rational conclusion. We are after all talking about a dysfunctional and corrupt FBI.
