Politically correct Portland rejected feds who saved city from terrorist attack

Politically correct Portland rejected feds who saved city from terrorist attack

When security becomes politicized: they’ll only cooperate with federal law enforcement if their own party is in power. Byron York observes at the Washington Examiner: In 2005, leaders in Portland, Oregon, angry at the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror, voted not to allow city law enforcement officers to participate in a key […]

Oregon Is The Most Corrupt State In The Union, Pt. 9.

Oregon Is The Most Corrupt State In The Union, Pt. 9.

Author’s note: This post originally appeared at http://redcounty.com/content/oregon-most-corrupt-state-union-pt-9 on Nov 8, 2010. Pertinent archives are being migrated to this new blog. In wading through all the reports of the broken chain of custody, I completely forgot to post the most ridiculous permutation of Oregon Election Law. 2009 HB 3451 allows for ballots to be opened 7 […]

My good […]

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union

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, […]

People’s Republic of Oregon bucks national trend towards conservatism

People’s Republic of Oregon bucks national trend towards conservatism

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 it’s also the […]

Why Chris Dudley lost

Why Chris Dudley lost

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 Dems.  If they had felt […]

Over at my buddy Max Redline’s Blog, something that will make you shake your head: Just In Time For Halloween! Metro, that sterling “regional government” had a great little money-making scheme going on – until […]

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union – Pt. 4. – NOW WITH EVEN MORE MEDIA COLLUSION!

She made the point that this state is FAR more corrupt than any of us realize. She gave two […]

  • Hirst could be the tipping point for state’s endangered rural Democrats June 22, 2017
    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]
  • Budget stalemate puts state’s financial reputation at risk June 21, 2017
    It takes a lot of time and dedication to build a good reputation but it takes only one bad choice to destroy it in an instant. As state treasurer, I carry this lesson with me every day as I work with other state officials and dedicated treasury staff to manage our state’s finances in a […]
  • Wire Poll on Mayor Race, Re-Wire Policy Conference, Government shutdown June 21, 2017
    We have poll results out from our first Wire Poll, and some suggested topics to share for this fall’s first Re-Wire Policy Conference. So, while summer is just days away, we’ve got a few things we think are worth keeping your eye on as you find time to hit the beach and mountains this season. […]
  • New Driving Data June 23, 2017
    The Federal Highway Administration has just released urban highway statistics for 2015, including the miles of roads and daily vehicle miles of driving by road type and “selected characteristics” for each urban area, including population, land area, freeway lane miles, and similar information. These data are quite useful as they allow interregional comparisons as well […]
  • The Transit Apocalypse June 22, 2017
    With declining ridership, growing costs, and increasing competition, the nation’s transit industry is on the verge of complete collapse. The trends leading to this collapse appear to be permanent, yet transit officials across the country are pretending they are only temporary. Instead of preparing for the collapse, they are simply seeking more subsidies. The Antiplanner […]
  • Response to Congestion Report June 21, 2017
    Two weeks ago, the Center of the American Experiment published a report by the Antiplanner showing that traffic congestion in Minneapolis-St. Paul was the deliberate result of the region’s Metropolitan Council’s plans to increase congestion in order to get more people to ride transit, walk, or bicycle. The Antiplanner quoted Met Council documents saying that […]
