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 participa [...]

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.

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 [...]

I recently saw Chris Telfer, Republican Candidate for State Treasurer, speak at the U-Choose Candidate Forum. She made t [...]
Almost 10 years after instituting financial incentives for Washington residents to install solar panels, the state is debating if those tax breaks are too generous for an electricity source that amounts to a pittance of its renewable energy portfolio. The number of solar panels installed has grown dramatically in the last several years, but costs […]
The case in question resulted in the largest ever settlement payout by the state in a child abuse case -- $9.75 million for five siblings who suffered terrible abuse at the hands of their parents. Faced with a tough case, internal records show that the AG's office signed contracts with experts for hundreds of thousands of dollars in an attempt to downpl
The White House is trying to connect with Millennials using Sesame Street tactics. Democrats sent out an email listing their accomplishments for generation Y using emoijis and “hip” TV references. Unfortunately, this probably won’t bring out the youth vote. This generation isn’t interested in the midterms, and cares more about the economy than infographics.
1) The word used to summarize continued nuclear talks between the U.S. and Iran is “progress” which came from reports by each party. Sec. of State John Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif yesterday. There is little discussion on what that progress might be. The deadline for the talks is late November. […]
1) Officials from at least 20 countries met in Washington DC yesterday as part of the Anti-ISIS coalition. The meeting included discussions of military strategy as ISIS makes gains in Iraq and Syria, despite on-going airstrikes. 2) Mozambique, a smaller country in Southeast Africa, held elections today in what is seen as a very […]
Two years ago, Virginia Beach put a measure on the ballot to extend the Norfolk light rail (which stops at the border between the two cities) into Virginia Beach. All of the advertising for the measure said “Vote Yes to Study Light Rail.” But the actual measure read, “Should the City Council adopt an ordinance […]
The Antiplanner’s presentation on autonomous vehicles, mass transit, and long-range transportation planning is now available for download. It’s about 20 MB. Tonight (October 16), at 7 pm, the Antiplanner will speak about the Tide light rail in the Virginia Beach Central Public Library Auditorium. (The event was originally to take place elsewhere but the loca
Two more rail transit lines are following in the tracks of so many others that have failed to live up to planners’ promises. First, Orlando’s SunRail commuter train is “losing riders at an increasing pace.” The project, which cost a billion dollars and was built partly to persuade the federal government that Florida was serious […]
