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 [...]

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday said it plans to come up with updated water quality standards for Washington partly tied to how much fish people eat – in case the state doesn’t do it by next year. The post EPA To Step In On Fish-Consumption Rule If State Fails To Act appeared first on Washington State Wire.
In a move that took some by surprise Thursday, the board of the Washington Health Benefit Exchange voted to take the state’s online insurance exchange out of the business of managing customer payments and invoices. The post State Health Exchange To Turn Over Payment System To Insurance Carriers appeared first on Washington State Wire.
In describing the prospect of taxing carbon emissions last week, Gov. Jay Inslee said it offers Washington state “a two-fer, maybe even a three-fer” because it would generate money for education, transportation and cut carbon pollution statewide. That also serves as an apt descriptor of the tax policy proposals he finally made public along with […] The post
It’s with a heavy heart and after much consideration that I’m writing this. I’m stepping down as the Director/Producer/Putin Picture Purveyor of The World Class Hour. I’m not the same guy I was 2 or 3 years ago when we started this. I was single, underemployed and went to bed a hell of a lot […]
1) The Pakistan Taliban attacked a military-run school in Peshawar leaving 141 dead, most of them children, and an additional 120 people were wounded in the largest attack of its kind in Pakistan. 2) A car bomb attack in Yemen killed 25 people, the bomb hit a school bus at a (Shia) Houthi crossing point, […]
1) Several officers were injured during a clash with protesters in Mexico. The protesters were organizing a concert in support of the 43 missing students, lost more than 2 months ago. 2) Denmark has presented an official claim to the North Pole, challenging Russia and Canada. 3) Sec. of State John Kerry met with Israeli Prime Minister […]
Iranian-American human rights activist and journalist Lisa Daftari blasted the Beverly Hills Hotel last week while accepting an award at a gala being hosted in the controversial hotel owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who has come under fierce criticism for imposing Sharia law in his country and oppressing women.
A while back, during one of Barnes and Noble’s frequent half-off Criterion Collection sales, a friend on social media snarked, “half off a DVD, or still way more than the cost of a subscription to Hulu, where you can stream every Criterion disc.” The joke, like much great humor, was equal parts funny and sad. Funny, because it’s true, of course, and reveals
The Economist reports that housing in China is “cheaper than you think.” The magazine-that-calls-itself-a-newspaper’s measure of affordability is the average price of a 100-square-meter (1,076-square-foot) home divided by average household income.

BMW has announced that it will demonstrate a valet-parking car at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month. This is more than a car that can parallel park by itself. Instead, it is a car that can cruise through a parking garage until it finds an empty space and park there until […]
Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx wants you to go on a diet–a road diet. “A typical road diet takes a segment of four-lane undivided roadway and reconfigures it into three lanes with two through lanes and a center two-way left turn lane,” he says. The theory behind a road diet is simple. From now on, […]
