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 [...]

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 [...]

School districts were able to opt in or out of the Smarter Balanced field test last spring. They were not required to administer both the old and new tests. For the 2014 field testing, the state chose to not post reading and math results.
This piece was originally written for the former conservative youth blogging and news site, Resist44 on June 21, 2012. Yesterday afternoon, word reached the U. S. news sources that Hosni Mubarak, former President of Egypt, had a stroke and was then pronounced clinically dead. Not more than an hour later, conflicting reports began coming in […]
1) Human rights investigators from the U.N. have condemned the Syrian government and ISIS militants for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians by chemical weapons and conventional weapons. On the ground in Syria, social media reports say the so-called Islamic State has taken a Syrian military based, and is holding Syrians hostage. […]
The media constantly rants about the trampling of free speach and first amendment rights in America, but is it really so bad? I wrote Freedom of Speech is Not Dead in America for PIE to showcase how the U.S. offers the best international protection for the written word.

What he fails to see is that the same impulse that attempts to control land uses in California, making housing expensive, also makes unduly […]
Utah Transit Authority executives are overcompensated, the agency has underfunded its high rail maintenance costs, its bus service has suffered due to financial constraints, concludes the Utah State Legislative Auditor. Moreover, as reported in the Salt Lake Tribune, the agency’s fare structure makes the poor subsidize the rich, which the agency has signed c
Planners predicted that Norfolk’s Tide light-rail line, which opened in 2011 60 percent over budget and 16 months behind schedule, would stimulate economic development along its route. But little development is taking place, so the Virginian Pilot has come up with a grand idea: reduce fares by two thirds. That, the paper’s editorial writers guesstimate, […]
