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.

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 […]

In one of his only official acts during his short […]
  • 2nd Quarter Home Price Indices October 19, 2017
    Someone just paid $1.1 million for a tear-down/fixer-upper in Mountain View, California. That’s not really news, as prices in Silicon Valley have been increasingly outrageous. What’s news is that they bought the house with the provisos that the existing owner will get to live there for seven years; the buyer didn’t get to see the […]
  • Taxing and Regulating the Competition October 18, 2017
    Here’s a difference between government-run businesses and private businesses: when private businesses face competition, they are forced to innovate to survive. When government-run businesses face competition, they can regulate or tax their competitors out of business. Blackberry was once the dominant smart phone. Then came the iPhone, which reduced Blackberry subscribers from 85 million to […]
  • More Signs of the Transit Apocalypse October 17, 2017
    According to the Washingtonian, a transit advocacy group called TransitCenter “analyzed” the data and found that declining ridership on the Washington Metro system is “dragging down national ridership figures.” With the Metro’s numbers, the national total of heavy-rail riders is declining; without Metro, heavy-rail plus light-rail ridership is increasing. In other words, just give Metro […]
