Another Creepy Democrat Tracker?

wpid-img_6090.jpg

At the Multnomah County Fair today, Republican nominee for Senate Monica Wehby was in the crowd to meet and talk to voters. Also in the crowd was Jon Friedman, the Democrat tracker previously identified as assigned by the DPO to follow Dr. Wehby around as much as possible in order to film her every move. […]

The Salem-Keizer Sentinel is reporting this evening that David Darnell, Republican candidate for Oregon House District 18, has been cleared of any wrong doing in his voter’s pamphlet statement by the Secretary of State, despite a complaint filed and negative campaign literature to the contrary: May 17, 2014 The Oregon Secretary of State has cleared David […]

Daylight Dissed! Oregonian Trots Out Smear Expert To Attack Citizen Journalist.

Oregonian reporter Harry Esteve smeared City of Springfield. Had to apologize on TV and in print.

You have to laugh about the Oregonian trotting out their most egregious hit-piece artist to attack me because I caught Governor Kitzhaber … wait for it … shopping for eggplant!  I ran into the Governor while he was at shopping at QFC and YouTubed the bizarre coincidence for laughs, and because well, it’s my First Amendment […]

Caught In Lie, Oregon State Senator Plays For Sympathy

Federal Budget Spending

She stands against “intimidation” – when it suits her. Democrat State Senator Ginny Burdick, an inveterate gun-grabber and author of several efforts to relieve Oregonians of the burdens imposed by their Constitutional rights, was to hold a “town hall” meeting at Portland State University last night, but at the last minute cancelled the event, citing “scheduling […]

#KorruptKate Komedy

In an unusual move for the folks at The Zero, they published an editorial this morning that was surprisingly positive in its portrayal of Republican candidate for Secretary of State Knute Buehler’s proposal to audit municipalities and agencies most at risk due to increasing PERS payment requirements, in hopes of elevating awareness of just how significant an issue […]

The Oregonian Publishes Yet Another Blatant Bias Piece Disguised As News Coverage

Oregonian box

Knute Buehler is a Republican running for statewide office in Oregon. Therefore, whatever coverage he receives from the newspaper of record is typically scant. The Oregonian has a long, rich history of liberal bias, and yesterday’s story about Dr. Buehler is no exception. In a news article about a press conference he held, the reporter, […]

Media Manipulation of George Zimmerman Tapes Still Driving the Trayvon Martin Narrative

This morning, during the 8am hour, the faithful listeners of the Bob Miller show on KPAM 860am were posed with a thought experiment. Evidenty George Zimmerman is having difficulty leading a normal life these days, and he’s launched a website to accept donations to cover expenses and pay his legal fees: http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com/. On his show, […]

Oregonian reports on Portland’s misplaced priorities: Despite record revenues, Portland’s transportation bureau is broke

Oregonian reports on Portland’s misplaced priorities: Despite record revenues, Portland’s transportation bureau is broke

The Oregonian seems to have picked up on our earlier posts about misplaced priorities and self-inflicted budget woes at the Portland Bureau of Transportation. The story so far can be told in four pictures. Record revenues at the Portland Bureau of Transportation. “Discretionary” money has almost doubled since 2000. The city’s excuse that there it has […]

Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem – Dry Bones

300px-Bonestora

Metro’s in hot water again. The agency “manages” the Portland area’s 14 pioneer cemeteries of historical significance, and they also sell burial plots in them. Although there have been rumors over the years, the recent discovery of skeletal remains at a Metro dumpsite in Fairview have brought matters into sharp focus. The current cemetery manager, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Unspeakable

Unspeakable

Image via Wikipedia In Portland, it’s considered extremely bad form to discuss light rail using anything other than superlatives. Thus, in a Zero story about record gang violence, we get this: A 14-year-old boy lying on the corner of Northeast Multnomah Street and 11th Avenue, shot in the head and back. The killing, which took place April 18 […]

  • Why State Democrats Held Up a Budget Deal Over I-1351 July 7, 2015
    Amending an initiative requires a supermajority. Republicans needed Democratic votes, but because the solution wasn’t revealed to us until the last moment, our caucus didn’t have a chance to discuss the decision to delay it. We have members who are willing to vote to change the initiative, but we were clear with Senate Republicans about […]
  • Senate Budget Breakdown Over 1-1351: Get Back to Work July 7, 2015
    State senators should reflect on whether they are truly free and independent of the WEA, which for too long has wagged the dog in Olympia and is now impeding bipartisan progress on fixing the school system’s unconstitutional inequities. Disappointingly, the Senate Democrats, led by Minority Leader Sharon Nelson of Maury Island and Deputy Leader Andy […]

  • America’s First High-Speed Rail Project July 7, 2015
    Despite continued evidence that high-speed rail is a waste of money, reporters still write articles lamenting that high-speed trains in America are “elusive.” It’s elusive for a simple reason: it makes no sense, being slower than flying, less convenient than driving, and far more expensive than both. Due to the high costs, high-speed rail projects […]
  • Say Yes to Self-Driving Cars July 6, 2015
    A writer for Electronic Design magazine named Lou Frenzel opines “that the driverless car is not a good idea.” His argument comes down to, “I don’t know anything about it, but I can think of lots of problems that I don’t imagine anyone at Google has ever thought of.” For example, he asks, can self-driving […]
  • Oregon Starts Mileage-Based User Fees July 2, 2015
    Yesterday, the Oregon Department of Transportation began accepting applications from volunteers willing to switch from paying gas taxes to mileage-based user fees. The experimental program is limited to 5,000 volunteers and apparently the applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Oregon’s gasoline tax is 30 cents a gallon, so if your car gets 30 […]
