Last Thursday (July 15th) O'Shaughnessy appeared for sentencing at US District Court in Portland. He got the time he's served in jail and was sentence to two years of supervised...

Memorize the symbolism on his shirt. Yell as...

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Video that is getting national attention shows protesters denouncing author and philosopher Christina Hoff Sommers during a speech Monday at Lewis & Clark Law School. “I’ll say the majority of students, liberal and conservative, were shocked and disapproving of these antics but they were helpless,” said Sommers. Sommers says about a dozen students refused to let her get through a speech on closing the feminist mind. “I criticize feminism as a feminist,” said Sommers. The invitation to speak came from students in the Federalist Society chapter at Lewis & Clark. “We thought that her point of view...

    A 20-year-old is suing Dick’s Sporting Goods after being refused a Ruger .22 rifle purchase based on his age.

    The Department of Transportation's Inspector General says the “FAA’s oversight of industry actions to remove unapproved parts (from the nation’s aviation system) is ineffective,” and the agency “cannot be assured that unapproved parts … no longer pose a threat to safety” for the traveling public. That OIG report has prompted ranking member of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. Peter DeFazio, (D-Oregon), to vow to crack down on unapproved airplane parts that he says pose a safety risk to the flying public. The inspector general’s report echoes a series of stories by NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit that...

    Ryan Payne had the charges in Nevada dismissed in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff because of the willfull withholding of evidence by federal prosecutors.

While a jury considered felony charges the misdemeanors were decided by US District Judge Anna J. Brown. Ahead of next Tuesday's sentencing in Portland, federal prosecutors are seeking a nearly 3 and a half year (42 month) sentence...

    On October 25, a strange craft was seen — in broad daylight — flying amid the heavy traffic of the United States’ air corridors above the state of Oregon. Pilots radioed in reports of an aircraft flying outside registered flight plans. It was not responding to radio calls. It had no collision-avoidance transponders. But it was always just outside clear sight. On the ground, air traffic control was also seeing strange things. Its radar was intermittently tracking an unregistered object moving at unusually high speeds. It was cause for real concern. After all, 9/11 showed the potential havoc aircraft flying...
