James O’Keefe Makes His Triumphant Return To Oregon. Should Portland Politicians Worry?

The rally will be indoors, and will feature nationally renowned citizen journalist James O’Keefe. Also invited is Breitbart.tv Editor in Chief Larry O’Connor.

The End Of The Political Career Of Rob Cornilles, And What It Means For The Rest Of The Nation

bonamici wins

Rob Cornilles lost the special election tonight in Oregon’s First Congressional District. He lost in a special election that resulted from a disgraced Democrat resigning amid a second (at least) sexual assault scandal, after previously losing to the disgrace amid the disgrace’s mental breakdown in the 2010 election. He lost to a woman who actively […]

Oregon’s CD1 Replaces Scandal-ridden Wu With Class Warfare Queen Bonamici

120131_suzanne_bonamici_victory

Can’t say I’m surprised. It’s Chris Dudley all over again.  The Republican Establishment in Oregon, like their national counterparts, consistently run under the delusion that the most “moderate,” milquetoast candidate which least offends the Left is the most “electable.”   Then they lose…and inevitably blame the conservative base that held their nose and voted for […]

Takin’ It To The Streets

Takin’ It To The Streets

Some 5,000 anti-abortion protesters rallied in the streets yesterday; Image by Getty Images via @daylife 300 arests were made, and officers earlier fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center. Of course, the arrests and tear-gassing had nothing to do with the assemblage of abortion opponents who gathered at the […]

Oregon TEA Party May Have Protected Portland Landmark From Further Damage by Occupy

Workers repair damaged elk statue downtown, probably damaged by Occupiers.  Actions by the Oregon TEA PArty may have prevented further damage.

Dateline January, 7 2012 Portland OR – Flash.  KATU News is reporting that “The Elk,” an art icon which was situated within the illegal Occupy camp, was quite possibly damaged by the Occupiers!  On November 12, 2011; fetid protestors were forcibly evicted from Chapman and Lownsdale Public Squares by the Portland Police Department.  They had been inhabiting the […]

Daylight Disinfectant Weekend Edition: Occupy Meets TEA Party, Hendrix Style

John Kuzmanich, Chairman of the Oregon TEA Party grooves along with Occupy Musician Trent from Hillsboro

Dateline Portland Oregon – January 6, 2012:  On a weekend marked by “Little Christmas” I had a recollection of one of the more positive moments from the stinking cesspool that was Occupy Portland.  It was a video that I wanted to put up but never found the time.  On October 21, 2011 I had an […]

The Real Reason Mayor Sam Adams Isn’t Running For Reelection – Transparent Hypocrisy

beau and sam

Jeff Mapes, Democrat Mouthpiece local political reporter for the paper of record, lent an assist yesterday to lame duck Portland Mayor Sam Adams in his attempt to drive all Republicans out of the city limits: Portland Mayor Sam Adams says he is unhappy about Republican plans to hold a presidential debate here in March because […]

Occupy’s Overtures To ‘Find Common Ground’ With The Tea Party Are A Trojan Horse

trojan-horse2

If you talk to some of the young idealists who have jumped on the “Occupy Wall Street” bandwagon, you may be tempted to think that they aren’t so different from the Tea Party, after all. I can sympathize with compassionate conservatives who want to reach out to these disillusioned kids and try and divert their energies towards more […]

The Portland Mercury’s Attack on Citizen Journalism: Setting the Record Straight

sandini_getting_the-drop_on_michael_moore_scaled

The day before Thanksgiving I was the target of a hit piece by Portland Mercury’s News Editor Denis C. Theriault that included half-truths, innuendo and outright lies. Nice timing Denis.  When someone sent me the link I was about to leave for the Oregon coast to spend the holiday with my boyfriend.  I refused to […]

mclaughlin

5440 note: Every year since college, my best friend and I have played the Home Game along with the McLaughlin Group – the eternal political roundtable on PBS. Here is my entry for 2011 (as always, opinions are solely those of the author): Biggest Winner of the Year: I’ll go with Pat Buchanan on this […]

Co-Burn

govt waste

Wastebook 2011 is out. It’s often interesting to see where your tax dollars go. Teletubbies didn’t seem to make the list, but we did spend $10 million for a remake of “Sesame Street” for Pakistan. Isn’t that sweet? All told, a mere $6.5 billion was peed away this year, so apparently, austerity measures are striking hard at the soft […]

We Tried to Warn You, Mayor Adams – Protester Who Harassed Tea Party Arrested For Spitting in Security Guard’s Face

1Hernandez

During our law-abiding Tea Party rally last April, Leftist radicals came to harass and fling racist, homophobic and vulgar epithets at us and our children.  One of them was a profane protester named Richard Hernandez, seen here flipping the bird at a videographer at  the 2:06 mark (warning: foul language): View on YouTube The local media did a […]

  • House Democrat introduces bill highlighting job training needs in rural counties March 22, 2017
    Washington Republicans have been identifying themselves as the party representing rural voters. They make those arguments when talking about water rights as it relates to the Hirst Decision. They talk about it when they discuss expanding telemedicine. They talk about it when they criticize the carbon tax as regressive and likely to hit rural commuters. […]
  • Gov. Jay Inslee criticizes Senate’s proposed cuts to Western State Hospital March 22, 2017
    This article is crossposted on State of Reform, a health policy news site.  Gov. Jay Inslee came out strongly against the Senate Majority Coalition Caucus’ proposed budget for the 2017-2019 biennium and highlighted the suggested cuts to Western State Hospital. The MCC would increase funding to mental health care by $250 million, but they focus those […]
  • Senate transportation budget faces criticism at public hearing for proposed actions on collective bargaining March 21, 2017
    Leaders in Washington transportation expressed their support or opposition to the Senate’s proposed transportation budget Tuesday afternoon. The budget appropriates $8.4 billion for the upcoming 2017-2019 biennium, and projects higher revenue coming in than the past biennium. Most testifying Tuesday sought more wiggle room in the budget for their respective interests. Multiple people representing the […]
  • Transit Ridership Down 2.3% in 2016 March 23, 2017
    With little fanfare, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) released its fourth quarter 2016 ridership report last week. When ridership goes up, the lobby group usually issues a big press release ballyhooing the importance of transit (and transit subsidies). But 2016 ridership fell, so there was no press release. The report showed that light-rail ridership […]
  • Did Nader Really Call Apple a Monopoly? March 22, 2017
    “Consumer advocate Ralph Nader, concerned about fake news prevalent on social media sites, believes Congress should weigh in with antitrust legislation targeting Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Apple,” reports the Washington Examiner. Say what? Just what do Microsoft and Apple have to do with so-called fake news? How are any of these companies monopolies? Is Ralph […]
  • Portland Housing Stupidity Grows March 21, 2017
    Here’s an incredibly stupid idea to deal with Portland’s housing affordability problems: Multnomah County proposes to build tiny houses in people’s backyard. The people will get to keep the houses on the condition that they allow homeless people to live in them for five years. That’s supposed to be an incentive. For five years, you […]
