    For four years, hidden cameras recorded Madison Reed's most private moments, beginning when she was just 13 years old. The cameras, placed by a neighbor in the teenager's bedroom and in a beach house, are now gone, but the painful memories remain. "It's disgusting," Madison said. "I don't like to think about it, but I think about it all the time. Like all day." According to law enforcement investigators, Bradley McCollum, a family friend, set up a camera at his Clatsop County beach house in 2010 to secretly record Reed as she visited with McCollum's family. In 2014, he added...
  • Oregon bank now says it won't work with Colorado marijuana businesses

    01/27/2015 11:41:26 AM PST · by george76 · 8 replies
    MBank, an Oregon bank that last week said it would allow Colorado marijuana businesses to open accounts, now says it won't. The Denver Post reports the bank is saying it doesn't have the infrastructure to handle the volume of customers in the pot industry. But the newspaper cites unnamed sources as saying federal banking regulators told MBank the move was too risky. Because marijuana remains illegal under federal law, companies in the industry haven't been able to find a bank to handle their business. MBank doesn't have a Colorado location. Instead, MBank intended to have marijuana businesses deposit their cash...

    FULL TITLE: Elizabeth Hovde: Reaction to anti-abortion rally highlights Portland's intolerance for opposing views People in the Portland area tend to say minorities should be heard and valued. There's a lot of bragging about this tolerant, nonconformist land. And "Keep Portland Weird" has become an informal mantra of the city's residents, with a bumper sticker always married to a car, wall or backpack nearby. (Never mind that the saying was imported from an Austin, Texas, buy-local campaign started by the Austin Independent Business Alliance. Details, details.) But pride in feeling superior, another Portland tendency, trumps that whole valuing-minority-opinions thing, I...

    Washington (CNN)Senators worked till midnight on Thursday moving through a series of amendments to a bill that would green-light construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, but Senate Democrats wanted to stay longer. At least, they were frustrated with what they said was a double standard from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who moved to end debate on the bill and set up a final vote next week after tabling a number of Democratic amendments. The Senate had already voted on 15 amendments, 10 of which were offered by Democrats and another five from Republicans. But Democrats cried foul at...

    About 1,000 opponents of abortion rallied under damp skies in downtown Portland Sunday and heard from a keynote speaker whose appearance reflected the city's hipster vibe. Bryan Kemper, who once lived in Portland, sported elaborate arm tattoos, ear piercings and a faded T-shirt as he addressed the crowd marking the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision establishing abortion rights. While he was soft-spoken in conversation, there was nothing laid back about Kemper's rhetoric at the Pioneer Courthouse Square rally organized by Oregon Right to Life. He criticized Christian churches that don't do enough to fight abortion...

Firefighters used thermal imaging to scan the truck at Highway 99 and Middleton Road and found it was empty. The details of how the truck got into the tree are a mystery to investigators. They were first alerted to the tree at 7:30 a.m. and called area hospitals, but no trauma patients came in overnight. PGE was at the scene due to safety concerns over power lines near the tree.

So when one Portland protester tried to maliciously stop traffic by walking into the road, you can imagine his surprise when one driver swerved toward him, allegedly yelled, “Get a job,” and ran him over… well, at least his foot.

The bill got a strong majority in the House, with 275 members voting for it, including 47 Democrats. But the measure fell eight votes short of the two-thirds majority it needed to pass, with 149 Democrats voting against it after House Democratic leaders whipped against it and President Obama threatened a veto. The vote ends a last-ditch effort by the nonprofit sector to get three of its priorities into law for good, after a...

Two-year-old “Cash” was dismissed before he even got to see action, The Associated Press reported. Among his many faults: He was afraid of heights. He had barking difficulties. And he startled at the slightest of noises, AP reported. On top of that, he couldn’t perform one of his key roles — jumping into high spots, like counters, to sniff out drugs. Instead, he’d...

As with Occupy, the vast majority of protesters preached peace, but a fringe group of people — some covering their faces with black bandannas — advocated violence and confrontations with police. And like Occupy, the original protest drew a disparate group of people together, not all of whom agreed with one another. Military veterans called for peace, a communist group called for the overthrow of capitalism, and a group...

    Americans who self-identify as “gay” or lesbian comprise roughly one to three percent of the population. Yet the homosexual movement — led by extremist homosexual pressure groups like the so-called Human Rights Campaign (HRC) — represent, per capita, one of America’s most powerful and well-funded political lobbies. Consider that HRC and the HRC foundation alone have an annual budget in excess of 50 million. Through a carefully crafted, decades-old propaganda campaign, homosexual activists have successfully cast homosexuals — many of whom enjoy positions of influence and affluence — as a disadvantaged minority. They have repackaged and sold to the public...

On the list was a $10,000 donation from Romney's political action committee. In a blog in late March, the Human Rights Campaign declared it had uncovered one of the group's "top secret donors," and accused Romney of "essentially funding NOM's strategy of using racial division and unfounded scare tactics to attack LGBT equality." The donation came as the National Organization for Marriage and other groups were fighting for the Proposition 8 measure banning gay marriage in California. But the gay marriage...

Lawson and Bean's tempestuous relationship, which included mutual restraining orders and Bean's allegation that the younger man tried to extort money from him led a WW cover story earlier this year. As WW reported, Bean went to the Multnomah County...

    Terry Bean, a Portland power player in national Democratic politics and the gay rights movement, was arrested today on charges of sex abuse in a case involving a 15-year-old boy. Law enforcement sources familiar with the case say Bean will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree, a felony, and sex abuse in the third degree, a misdemeanor. The arrest comes after a six-month investigation that began with allegations Bean secretly made video recordings of men having sex in his bedroom. As WW reported in June, Bean accused a former lover, Kiah Lawson, of attempting to...

    Following President Barack Obama’s speech announcing his executive order on illegal immigration, CNN political commentator and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich unloaded on the President, likening his speech to statements made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber and that those in the “elite” class “really underestimate” the disdain Americans have for unfortified borders. Responding on CNN in the minutes after it ended, Gingrich opined that it was wrong for the President to go against the incoming Congress as it had “repudiated his policies in the election” a few weeks ago. Gingrich then slammed what viewers just heard as “a...

    “A KOIN 6 Investigation uncovered that there’s a good chance the parents who signed permission slips in order for their children to attend have no clue what is really being taught behind closed doors. Part of the lesson plan at a workshop at the Oregon Adolescent Sexuality Conference is an adult website called Virtual Fem. In addition to the content from that website, numerous handouts, such as one that encourages cyber and phone sex, have been passed out to high school and middle school students in attendance.” And that’s only the tip of the iceberg uncovered in an explosive exposé that aired yesterday...

    When it came time for the US Senate to vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline, Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) “clout” did not have much of an impact on fellow Democrat senators. In fact, 35 of the senators who voted against the project were given campaign cash by Landrieu since the 2008 election cycle. Take a look here at the list of senators who don’t seem to acknowledge Landrieu’s “clout.” Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) $10,000 Sen. Richard Blumenthal (R-CT) $5,000 Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) $10,000 Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) $7,000 Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) $10,000 Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) $3,500 Sen....

    A nationally-known pro-abortion activist has been arrested on charges of raping a 15-year-old boy. Terrance Patrick Bean is the founder of Human Rights Campaign, a group that pushes other political issues but also takes a steadfastly pro-abortion position. Human Rights Campaign, in addition to advancing abortion, has also lobbied Congress to end all federal funding for abstinence education, and hailed one piece of legislation that cut off funding because it “would end abstinence-only-until-marriage programs once and for all.” Bean is also a prominent supporter of pro-abortion President Barack Obama. The Portland Oregonian newspaper has more on Bean’s indictment, reporting that...

    We now have the Oregon State Police numbers for firearms purchase denials for Oct. 2014. Once again, they demonstrate what a colossal sham the entire process is. While these numbers are repeatedly used by politicians and anti-gun groups to “prove” that background checks work, they prove exactly the opposite. The charade continues.

    The catastrophic predictions do not match up with historical trends For some reason, I don’t find it surprising that Oregon is a hotbed of climate alarmism. Thus, when the Portland Tribune recently published an article describing how Oregon’s “warmer climate imperils our health,” it seemed appropriate to look further into the claims being made. Apparently, climate change in Oregon will lead to “less snow on Mount Hood? [but] we can live with that.” Interesting, given how there has been no significant trend in maximum overwinter snowpack on Mount Hood since records began in 1981. Indeed, according to an article in...

    Little noticed after the midterm vote, which saw the GOP take control of the Senate and increase their majority in the House, was a referendum in sky blue Oregon to repeal the law that granted illegal immigrants the right to obtain a driver’s license.Even though the Democrats increased their majority in the state legislature and a Democratic governor was reelected, the measure for repeal passed by a 2-1 margin.This is a stark warning to President Obama and the Democrats that if he acts alone to amnesty 5 million illegals, his march to irrelevancy will be complete, and the party...

    The fate of a little-noticed ballot measure in strongly Democratic Oregon serves as a warning to President Barack Obama and his party about the political perils of immigration policy. Even as Oregon voters were legalizing recreational marijuana and expanding Democratic majorities in state government, they decided by a margin of 66-34 to cancel a new state law that would have provided driver's licenses to people who are in the United States illegally. "The Oregon measure tells you these measures are not easy or simple," said Muzaffar Chishti of the Migration Policy Institute. "The political cost may be significant, even in...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The fate of a little-noticed ballot measure in strongly Democratic Oregon serves as a warning to President Barack Obama and his party about the political perils of immigration policy. Even as Oregon voters were legalizing recreational marijuana and expanding Democratic majorities in state government, they decided by a margin of 66-34 to cancel a new state law that would have provided driver's licenses to people who are in the United States illegally. Obama is considering acting on his own, as early as this week, to possibly shield from deportation up to 5 million immigrants now living...
