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 […]

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 […]

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

    House Democrats propose to raise $1.5 billion in new revenue over the next two years to pay for education and social service spending.

  • WaBA: An Opportunity to Strengthen I-937 March 27, 2015
    I-937 has been a landmark success, boosting solar and wind electricity. It’s important we make any changes carefully. Senate Bill 5735 gives us a good start by including Carbon Reduction Investments, in transportation for example, which is our biggest carbon pollution source. The post WaBA: An Opportunity to Strengthen I-937 appeared first on Washington State […]
  • Top 3 International Stories to Watch Today: Yemen, Iraq & Nigeria March 26, 2015
    1) As Houthi rebels continued to gain ground in Yemen this week, Saudi Arabia has decided to step in. The Saudis began “Operation Decisive Storm,” with 150,000 soldiers and a series of air attacks to drive back the Houthis from their positions. Iran has condemned the attacks.

  • Top International Stories to Watch Today: Denmark, Israel & Tunisia March 23, 2015
    1) After Denmark announced plans to add radar capability to some of its warships and participate in NATO’s missile shield, Russia made specific threats to target Danish ships.

  • Top International Stories to Watch Today: Syria, Pakistan & Germany March 18, 2015

  • Senators: Spies May Have Intercepted Hillary Emails March 28, 2015

  • Gods and Man at the Fall of Rome March 28, 2015
    In 394, a river in Slovenia bore witness to a clash of civilizations. On one side stood a rebel army bearing statutes of Jupiter and Hercules. On the other stood the forces of Emperor Theodosius, bearing the standard of Christ. Battle commenced. Theodosius smashed the would-be usurpers, aided by a miraculous wind that conveniently threw […]

  • Federal Transit Inequities, Part 2 March 27, 2015
    A few weeks ago, the Antiplanner presented data showing that the distribution of federal transit dollars to urban areas was highly uneven, ranging from 26 cents per transit rider to $2.17 per transit rider. The main factor that appeared to make a difference was whether the urban area was building expensive new rail transit lines. […]
  • Self-Driving from San Francisco to New York March 26, 2015
    A self-driving car traveling from San Francisco to New York is about half-way through its journey, having reached Ft. Worth, Texas yesterday. The car is an Audi, but its self-driving electronics have been designed by Delphi, an auto supply company. Like Continental and Bosch, Delphi has been developing its own self-driving hardware and software. This […]
  • Withholding Funds to Improve Transit March 25, 2015
    The Washington Metro rail system is falling apart. Should local governments (which are responsible for most operations and maintenance costs) “key their payments to a certain number of problem-free rush hours, say 10 or so to start, before the payment is made?” a Washington Post reader asks Dr. Gridlock. “Maybe then they would be forced […]
