Oregon Education Association Isn’t Hiding It Anymore, Brags About Teaming With Occupy And Socialists

REA members join Occupy Portland

We’ve previously pointed out that the teacher strikes in East Multnomah County have been coordinated behind the scenes with Occupy Portland and the International Socialists Organization: Oregon Save Our Schools – Affiliated With Socialists And Occupy? At first, it appeared that the OEA wanted at least to maintain some separation for the purposes of plausible […]

Occupy Seattle, Mayor, Top Cop Deserve Heat

By now you’ve all seen the videos of the melee that took place in downtown Seattle last week. But how did this all come to pass? I attended the Seattle May Day for one major reason; Mayor Mike McGinn warned of violence, stating that he and the police had advanced intelligence that things could very […]

Occupy Catholics!

Occupy Catholics!

Evidently not content with simply alienating Jews, the Obama administration has moved against Catholics as well, stating flatly that there are no “constitutional rights issues” associated with their requirement that all health-care plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that induce abortions. That this fiat amounts to federal intervention into the free […]

That Explains The Sirens

That Explains The Sirens

So-called Occuturds were littering downtown Portland again last night; ostensibly in support of Freedom in Egypt. You have to love their deep understanding of local, national, and international events. About four of them were arrested during their celebration of freedom in Egypt, and it’s clear that the country over there pays considerable attention to the antics […]

Dateline Portland Oregon, January 18, 2011 – Lock up the kids honey, Occupy Portland is on the move again.  I have been doing Citizen Journalism for about a year and a half  now.  File this one under whatever the heck you want:  I have officially seen it all.  In a bizarre creepy twist to the so-called “movement,” […]

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 […]

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 […]

  • Senate committee discusses collective bargaining transparency August 17, 2017
    The Senate Commerce & Labor Committee held a work session yesterday on “public transparency in collective bargaining negotiations.” Despite the strong mandate for government transparency declared by the people in the Open Public Meetings Act, government employee contracts are usually negotiated in secret, meaning an important and costly taxpayer expense is hidden until the final bill comes due. There […]

  • “Quick Win” for Buses = Loss for Commuters August 18, 2017
    New York City rail transit lines have fallen on hard times, with frequent delays, accidents, and even trains not running at all. While Governor Cuomo has declared a state of emergency, some transit advocates want to make sure buses aren’t forgotten in any multi-billion-dollar fix. Some of their ideas, such as having people pay before […]
  • Black Crater Fire August 17, 2017
    The internet and phone service were both down in Camp Sherman yesterday afternoon and evening, which is when I would normally write the next day’s Antiplanner. So instead I took some night photos of the Milli Fire, which was burning on about 256 3,500 acres a few miles from here. Click image for a larger […]
  • Streamlining Infrastructure Approvals August 16, 2017
    President Trump issued an executive order yesterday aimed at streamlining the federal approval process for infrastructure projects. Contrary to the impression given by press reports, the order doesn’t repeal any environmental laws or rules. All it really does, the White House explains, is require federal agencies to work together to speed existing approval processes with […]
