Hatfield United States Courthouse under nightly siege from violent radicals, and Portland's police hard-pressed to protect it, President Trump sent in federal agents to secure the building.

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Our nation's Constitution is getting something of a stress test up in the Northwest, especially in the city of Portland.
