John Kitzhaber is expected to resign Friday, perhaps in the early […]

Cylvia Hayes Must Release All Emails – Why This Is A Big Deal

Lois Lerner thinks Republicans are assholes

Late Thursday evening, Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum ordered Cylvia Hayes to disclose all emails relating to public business under a public records request by The Oregonian. This order was at least in in part a response to the bombshell revelation that the office of Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber requested the destruction of several thousand emails […]

Rumor Mill: Is Kitzhaber Angling For A Full Pardon?

John_Kitzhaber_2010

Oregonians were left dumbfounded and dismayed that Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber reportedly changed his mind, choosing not to resign despite reports to the contrary. What’s going on? Credible speculation around Salem is that Kitzhaber, seeing the writing on the wall, is fully prepared to walk away from the governor’s mansion, but only if he and […]

ANALYSIS: What Do We Know About Kitzhaber And Kate Brown’s Return?

Seal_of_Oregon.svg

 How likely is a John Kitzhaber resignation? So much speculation is being offered regarding John Kitzhaber’s job status that it’s hard to keep up. We know that the Democratic Governor of Oregon is in deep trouble in his fourth term. We know that Kate Brown is second in line for the job should Kitzhaber resign. […]

Metro/Oregon Zoo Peddles More Baloney (Is That Even “Sustainable”?)

They’re using their carefully-crafted “Opt-In survey” to steer folks toward accepting their party line on “green” and “education” – rather than worrying about mundane things like responsibility for the animals in their care: The Oregon Zoo is home to 260 species of animals and welcomes more than 1.5 million visitors each year. What should all […]

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, […]

The Complicit Media

The Complicit Media

While it comes as no surprise that most so-called “journalists” are left-leaning liberals (some 85% of them are registered Democratics), it is interesting to see just how out-of-touch they are. Although there has been a slight shift over the course of the past decade,  the graph here remains illustrative. For a better view. visit http://www.journalism.org/node/2304 Of particular […]

Dysfunction Junction

the round

As Tri-Met and Metro keep plugging away on their $1.5 billion, seven-mile light rail “extension” from Portland into Clackamas county, the “editorial staff” at The Zero find themselves in complete agreement with thirty-year-olds: they’re miffed and mystified by the intransigence of Clackamas county residents who not only don’t want the thing, but are sufficiently energized that they […]

Another One Rides The Bus

bus seat bacteria

Cash-strapped Tri-Met has been cannibalizing bus services to pay for their trains; that’s been mentioned many times here. As it turns out,they’re cutting all kinds of things except, it appears, building more train lines and staffing their P.R. department. Even as public health experts fret about the rise of drug-resistant superbugs, money-strapped TriMet made deep cuts […]

Occupy Portland Strikes A Blow Against The 1%! Oh, wait …

d 12 portland

Hey, who knew there was a Wall Street in Harrisburg, Oregon? You know who is ruining the world for the little guy? Grass seed farmers! Let’s get ‘em! From today’s Albany Democrat Herald: Mid-valley grass-seed wholesalers and trucking companies got burned when Occupy Wall Street protesters descended on the Port of Portland on Monday. “I […]

The Oregonian and PolitiFact – Bending Over Backward Not To Give A Republican Credit

pants on fire

PolitiFact has just submitted another entry in a long line of evidence of bias in their analysis. This time, it’s the Oregonian’s man on the beat, Charles Pope. Mr. Pope has decided to dissect this statement on the website of Oregon’s only Republican Congressman, Greg Walden: “When the bill was signed into law, the White […]

Occupy PDXer Impersonates Police Officer, Man Arrested Nearby “We’re Going to Burn This Town”

occupy impersonation

The bad news – Occupy Portland insists on sticking around and causing problems for the 99% who aren’t them. The good news – they’re the gift that keeps on giving for citizen journalists hell bent on exposing the truth not revealed by the legacy media. Dateline Portland Oregon- November 29, 2011 – A videographer approaches […]

The More OMSI Digs, The Deeper It Gets

book burning

Earlier today, OMSI released a rather … ah … tepid statement defending their actions in calling off the AMS Climate event: On October 22, the Oregon chapter of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) asked OMSI if they could hold their November 29 meeting at OMSI, after hours, at no charge. AMS has been a longtime […]

OMSI Has Egg On Its Face – Excludes Peer Reviewed Science From Climate Conference

galileo mob

What an interesting follow up we have today to last weekend’s canceled climate conference at OMSI. The reader will recall that OMSI canceled, at the last minute, the Oregon American Meteorological Society’s event featuring Meteorologist Chuck Wiese, Climatologist George Taylor, and Gordon Fulkes, PhD, on November 29 due to the inclusion of AGW skeptics on […]

  • 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 […]
