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 […]

  • The Washington State House Budget Needs Climate Action March 30, 2015
    The Washington State House has released a state budget for the next two years, but something is conspicuously absent: a price on carbon. Without including the carbon charge from the Carbon Pollution Accountability Act, the House budget misses an opportunity to hold major emitters accountable and fully invest in our communities. The post The Washington […]

  • Top 3 International Stories to Watch Today: Yemen, Iraq & Nigeria March 26, 2015
    1) As Houthi rebels continued to gain ground in Yemen this week, Saudi Arabia has decided to step in. The Saudis began “Operation Decisive Storm,” with 150,000 soldiers and a series of air attacks to drive back the Houthis from their positions. Iran has condemned the attacks. The turmoil inside Yemen could lead to great […]
  • Top International Stories to Watch Today: Denmark, Israel & Tunisia March 23, 2015
    1) After Denmark announced plans to add radar capability to some of its warships and participate in NATO’s missile shield, Russia made specific threats to target Danish ships. The missile shield is not directed as Russia but at other nuclear threats like Iran. Russia says the move is damaging to Russian-Danish relations and says it will carry out […]

    1) The U.S. reiterated that they are looking for a solution in Syria that will not include Assad (after Sec. of State Kerry said the opposite earlier this week). Syria claims they have downed a U.S. drone (that the U.S. admits is missing) for spying in an area where there are no ISIS militants.   […]
  • Where Will the Money Come From? March 30, 2015
    During the Antiplanner’s visit to Washington DC last week, I tried to encourage people to think about the incentives created by federal transportation funding. But the first question on the minds of most of the people I talked with was, “How will we pay for highways and transit?” From outside the Beltway, this question almost […]
  • Federal Transit Inequities, Part 2 March 27, 2015
    A few weeks ago, the Antiplanner presented data showing that the distribution of federal transit dollars to urban areas was highly uneven, ranging from 26 cents per transit rider to $2.17 per transit rider. The main factor that appeared to make a difference was whether the urban area was building expensive new rail transit lines. […]
  • Self-Driving from San Francisco to New York March 26, 2015
    A self-driving car traveling from San Francisco to New York is about half-way through its journey, having reached Ft. Worth, Texas yesterday. The car is an Audi, but its self-driving electronics have been designed by Delphi, an auto supply company. Like Continental and Bosch, Delphi has been developing its own self-driving hardware and software. This […]
