  • John Kasich Tells Oregon Voters His Wife Agreed: Keep Going

    04/29/2016 9:27:34 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 41 replies
    PORTLAND, Ore. — Gov. John Kasich was helping his wife carry some clothes to the basement of their home in Ohio on Wednesday when they broached the subject that many Republicans have been wondering about. Should he continue his presidential campaign? After all, Mr. Kasich has not won a single state aside from Ohio. He has fewer delegates than Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who ended his own bid more than a month ago. And on Tuesday, Mr. Kasich even lost to Donald J. Trump in McKees Rocks, the Pennsylvania community where he grew up. “I said, ‘What do you...

    A ream of legal motions reveal some of the defense arguments in the pending federal conspiracy case against more than two dozen people indicted in the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Some of their lawyers are urging the court to dismiss specific counts of the indictment. They argue that the conspiracy charge is "unconstitutionally vague" and that the charge of carrying a firearm in the course of a crime of violence won't hold up because the conspiracy didn't rise to a crime of violence, according to legal briefs filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland.......

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump holds a double-digit lead over his competitors in Oregon, according to a new poll by Portland-based Hoffman Research Group. Trump has 43 percent support in the poll, followed by Ted Cruz with 26 percent and John Kasich with just 17 percent support. Cruz and Kasich announced last weekend a joint effort to deny Trump the nomination. As part of the strategy, Kasich would clear a path for Cruz in the Indiana primary and Cruz would back down in Oregon and New Mexico. But both candidates have walked away from the arrangement since their campaigns' announcement....

    Conservatives' attitudes toward climate change and other environmental concerns shift when the issues are reframed in terms more closely aligned with their values, a new study from Oregon State University indicates. Researchers found that people who identified as conservative were more likely to support "pro-environmental" ideals when the issues were framed as matters of obeying authority, defending the purity of nature and demonstrating patriotism. The study underscores the ways in which discussions of important topics are informed by a person's moral and ideological perspective, said the study's lead author, Christopher Wolsko, an assistant professor of psychology at OSU-Cascades.

    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz promised Nevada voters he will transfer control of federally-held lands back to the states if he's elected. "If you trust me with your vote," Cruz says in a new ad revealed Thursday. "I will fight day and night to return full control of Nevada's lands to its rightful owners, its citizens." Cruz criticizes fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump for his reluctance to champion state control of federal land. The ad begins by lamenting the fact that the federal government currently controls 85 percent of the land in Nevada, including the Lake Mead National...

    California and New York — where almost 1 in 5 Americans live — are on their way to raising their minimum wage to $15 an hour, and the activists who spearheaded those efforts are now setting their sights on other similarly liberal, Democratic-led states. Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington are among the states with active “Fight for $15” efforts, and even economic experts who oppose the increased rate see it gaining momentum. “There is lots of pressure to do this,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former Congressional Budget Office director who is now president of...
  • Gun control: Stymied in 2016, Oregon Democrats vow to try again in 2017

    04/02/2016 12:40:57 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 16 replies
    Unable to pass new gun-control bills this year, months after the state's deadliest shooting, Oregon Democrats are diving into campaign season with promises to try again in 2017. House Majority Leader Jennifer Williamson, D-Portland, wants to revive a measure that would limit default gun sales when background checks take longer than expected, after the bill earned tepid support and died in the Senate last month. Advisers for Gov. Kate Brown and Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum huddled with advocates in separate meetings Thursday to hear about executive actions they might take without legislative approval. Brown, up for election this year, had...

    In a move that could make every Constitutional Sheriff in America impotent against the Feds, information is coming to light which indicates that the FBI is seeking means to circumvent the legally elected sheriff in Sanders County, Montana. And, sadly, the same tactics have been used before. It is no secret that the Constitutional Sheriff is poison to the constitution-breaking Federal Government. And, subsequently, the Feds would like nothing better than to neutralize the powers of a Constitutional Sheriff. But, would the Feds knowingly break the law with plans to shield themselves via Federal Supremacy? It appears that they would,...

    Special Agent in Charge Greg Bretzing has been providing press conferences in the wake of the Oregon standoff and the murder of LaVoy Finicum. However, it has come to my attention that Mr. Bretzing has also been linked to the lead agent at Bundy Ranch, as well as wrongful deaths related to a 2009 Indian Artifact Investigation. The Los Angeles Times has the complete story of what took place in Utah during the artifact investigation. It's a horrible story of entrapment that led to several suicides, including Dr. James Redd and an undercover agent. ... the wrongful death suit that...

    Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer, facing criminal investigation and possible action against his police certificate, Tuesday moved to set up a legal defense fund. Such a fund, which requires state approval, would allow Palmer to take contributions for attorneys and other costs. Palmer is the target of 10 complaints filed with the state Department of Public Safety Standards and Training. They accuse Palmer of violating standards for police officers in his dealings with self-proclaimed militia members. One complaint said his conduct put the safety of his rural county in jeopardy.....

    A federal judge Tuesday agreed to lift Shawna Cox's home detention and replace it with a curfew, but cautioned the 59-year-old defendant in the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge not to make public comments about the pending case. "She's not going to make any public comment, at all, period, or she could sit in jail," U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones ordered. Cox has been out of custody since her Jan. 29 release and listened to Tuesday's hearing via speaker phone from her home in Kanab, Utah. The judge told Cox she must refrain from making any...

    Lincoln High School in Portland, Oregon, sports a series of murals painted in its main entrance that feature communist and La Raza/Aztlan propaganda. Take a gander at these! Note the American flag with the hammer and sickle in place of the stars, the white arms in shackles with what appears to be Fidel Castro with the Cuban flag behind him, men with guns, an image of Che Guevara, dollar bills, and what appears to be missiles popping up from silos. Perhaps this is some kind of imagery of strong border control?
