When security becomes politicized: they’ll only cooperate with federal law enforcement if their own party is in power.

Ok now that the election season is over, and we’ve had another opportunity to see Oregon hard at work ensuring fair elections, I have all sorts of new [...]
Oregon patriot Chuck Wiese made this observation after the election results were finalized:
The fix is in for voter fraud in the State of Oregon. At some time recent, the statutes were changed to ORS 247.017 (4): “Except as provided in ORS 247.125, if a registration card is legible, accurate and contains, at a minimum, the registrant’s [...]
While we certainly celebrated Republican victories across the country, election night was bittersweet for conservatives in Oregon. These small pockets of blue managed to override the voters in the rest of the state once again.
Multnomah County, home to the People’s Republic of Portland, is the most liberal in the state of Oregon, but [...]
13,069 votes. That’s how close we came to finally having a Republican governor.
It’s even more disheartening to learn that 19,013 voted for Greg Kord of the Constitution Party and 17,404 for Libertarian Wes Wagner – more than enough to have put us in the winner’s circle. Neither group is particularly friendly to Dem [...]

Citing popular demand, Sound Transit’s governing board Thursday unanimously voted to seek a new sales tax, a new car-tab fee and/or a new property tax. Next, the agency will ask the Legislature for authorization before sending a proposal to the November 2016 ballot in urban Snohomish, King and Pierce counties.

After nearly 100 years manufacturing signs, Greg Stuart was shocked to learn that his company, Vancouver Sign Group, was not legally a manufacturer – At least as far as the Washington State Department of Revenue was concerned. The distinction seems small: The agency said the fact that the company installs some of the signs they […] The post Taxpayer’s Nightm
A hearing Thursday before the Senate Transportation Committee offered Republicans a chance to sound off on Gov. Jay Inslee’s potential carbon policy proposals, and Chairman Curtis King of Yakima didn’t leave the opportunity to waste. King criticized a report earlier this week from an Inslee-appointed task force that examined a cap-and-trade or a carbon tax [
Life is a risk. Everything we do and everywhere we go are all fraught with risks. You could get hit by a car while walking the dog, or slip in your bathroom and crack your hip. The point is everything in life, relationships, the workplace and in our hobbies all contain an element of risk. […]

A bevy of liberal groups are getting in on the union-driven Walmart protests scheduled to take place on Black Friday. The United Food and Commercial Workers union has sponsored protests at hundreds of Walmart locations across the country over the past two years. Those protests have elicited the support of a number of labor unions and agitators, but have been
Count on someone at the Washington Post to play the race card in the postmortems over the Arlington streetcar. “Lower-income, racially diverse South Arlington has been counting on the Columbia Pike and Crystal City streetcar projects to deliver a jolt of growth,” says Post columnist Robert McCartney. The county board’s decision to kill the streetcar […]
A new report from two pro-transit groups, the Frontier Group and the Transit Center, argues that allowing employers to deduct parking costs from their income when calculating their profits (and, thereby, their taxes) represents a $7 billion subsidy to driving. This subsidy, the report claims, adds significantly to highway congestion. Baloney. First of all, j
The county board for Arlington County, Virginia, has voted four-to-one to cancel all planning for a proposed $358 million, 7.7-mile streetcar line along Columbia Pike. This should also effectively shut down planning for a Crystal City streetcar that was projected to cost $227 million. The decision came on the heels of board member John Vilstadt’s […]
