    A Senior US District Judge from Washington state, John C. Coughenour, has quashed a move by Oregon Standoff defense attorney Marcus Mumford to remove himself from the disbarment process against Mumford. The top federal judge in Oregon, Michael Mosman, is seeking the disbarment of Mumford from the federal court in Oregon over his behavior in the first Oregon Standoff trial. The disbarment move follows the decision by the federal government to dismiss criminal charges against Marcus Mumford, who was tackled, tased and arrested, after the not guilty verdicts were read out on October 27th last year. The federal marshals who...

    Three of President Trump's female accusers spoke with NBC's Megyn Kelly Monday about their experiences, all claiming he took advantage of them sexually. Former beauty pageant contestant Samntha Holvey alleged that Trump made her feel like "a piece of meat," Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist, claimed he forcibly kissed her, and Jessica Leeds, a traveling saleswoman, says he groped and kissed her on an airplane. The White House has dismissed them as "false claims," as Kelly reiterated on her show.These women's stories, however, were enough to convince Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) that the president needs to step down "immediately." Should...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas once told a group of Washington DC high school students that his toughest cases were those where "his heart said one thing and the law said something else". US District Judge Gloria Navarro's "heart" was revealed in her blind acceptance of prosecution pronouncements at the first two Bunkerville Standoff trials, only to be blindsided by the sudden release of torrents of evidence as the third trial got underway. Navarro went through the first two trials accepting there was no evidence justifying self-defense (the Second Amendment) as a defense for the six defendants..... She has seen...

    While much of the country’s attention was focused on the astonishing acquittal of Kate Steinle’s killer in San Francisco, another illegal immigrant accused of horrendous crimes was being held accountable for them farther up the coast in Portland, Oregon. According to the New York Post, a Mexican national with a criminal record and series of prior deportations and re-entries named Sergio Jose Martinez was sentenced to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple counts including assault, burglary, kidnapping, sexual abuse, sodomy, and rape. He remained incredibly defiant and showed no remorse while receiving his sentence. During the sentencing...

    Defense lawyers in the Bunkerville standoff case were stunned last month to receive recorded phone calls between co-defendant Blaine Cooper and his Oregon defense lawyer from federal prosecutors who had previously denied possessing any attorney-client privileged jailhouse calls. Prosecutors shared 12 recorded jail phone calls between Cooper and Portland lawyer Krista Shipsey with defense lawyers for co-defendants Cliven Bundy, his two sons and Ryan Payne, who are now on trial in federal court in Las Vegas. Cooper has pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges in both the 2014 standoff with federal agents near Bunkerville.....and in the 2016 Oregon......He is cooperating...

    The federal prosecutors wanted a two year sentence but US District Judge Anna J. Brown opted for one year and day in prison for John Ritzheimer for his role in last year's Oregon Standoff protest. She also ordered combat veteran Ritzheimer to a 12 month residential re-entry program. Judge Brown cited his military service and PTSD related issues in her sentencing. Jon Ritzheimer posted a video online right before he traveled to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to begin his participation in the Oregon Standoff protest. It was a very disturbing video suggesting violence and death were in his future....

    If the economy is doing just fine, then why is homelessness at levels not seen “since the Great Depression” in major cities all over the country? If the U.S. economy was actually in good shape, we would expect that the number of people that are homeless would be going down or at least stabilizing. Instead, we have a growing national crisis on our hands. In fact, within the past two years “at least 10 cities or municipal regions in California, Oregon and Washington” have declared a state of emergency because the number of homeless is growing so rapidly. Things are...

    Now ten members of the "progressive caucus" of the Democratic Party are trying to give these terrorist leaders another reason for using even younger terrorists to kill even more innocent civilians. The bill fails to acknowledge that some of the most barbaric terrorist attacks against Jewish Israelis have been committed by Palestinian teens who have been recruited by terrorist leaders. Israel has a right — according to international law — to protect its citizens from constant terror attacks, even those committed by young Palestinians. Indeed, it has an obligation to do so. Palestinian terrorist leaders often use teenagers to...

    For those who weren't the leaders of the Oregon Standoff found not guilty in the first trial, those who entered guilty pleas or were tried in the second rigged trial, there have been penalties imposed by federal courts. Today Darryl Thorn, one of those convicted in the second rigged trial, received an 18 month sentence from US District Judge Anna J. Brown......

    REDMOND, Ore. - A Salem-based gun manufacturer called Radian Weapons is relocating to Redmond. It makes rifle accessories and AR-15s that are sold all over the world. The company is moving its entire production facility and headquarters to Redmond. For the past six months, Radian Weapons has been working with Redmond city officials to find a building. They settled on the High Desert Industrial Park, a lease-to-own building at 875 NE Kingwood Avenue. Redmond Economic Development Senior Director Jon Stark said Central Oregon was attractive to the company, because it is largely accepting of the gun industry. "Redmond's pretty conservative,...

    PORTLAND, Ore.–Parents at a rural Oregon high school have filed a federal lawsuit over the school district's policy to allow a transgender male student to use the boys' locker room and bathroom, mirroring a similar civil action in Illinois that did not survive a legal challenge. The lawsuit filed this week in Portland challenges a decision by the Dallas School District to allow Elliot Yoder, now 16, to use boys' facilities.(snip) "The case targets transgender youth for simply existing and seeking an education," said Mat dos Santos, legal director for ACLU Oregon. "This lawsuit is senseless and cruel but it...

    President Donald Trump has nominated Billy J. Williams to remain as Oregon's U.S. attorney. Williams, 60, was among four top federal prosecutors that the president nominated Friday.... Williams' nomination was anticipated after US Attorney Jeff Sessions visited Portland in September..... U.S. Sens. Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden urged Trump in an August letter to White House counsel Donald F. McGahn II to retain Williams, noting his integrity as a prosecutor and bipartisan support..... The Oregon State Sheriff's Association also wrote to the White House saying Williams has a "deep understanding" of the issues facing law enforcement and called him a...

    When the first Oregon Standoff trial of leaders of the early 2016 protest ended with not guilty verdicts for all seven defendants plus the tackling, tasing and arrest of Ammon Bundy's defense attorney, Marcus Mumford, the jury was then taken to a meeting with US District Judge Anna J. Brown. Judge Brown questioned the jury as to their reasoning behind the not guilty verdicts. This was the beginning of a rigged process for the trial of the second group of defendants. The federal prosecutors tacked misdemeanor charges onto the felony ones, with Judge Brown holding a bench trial on those...

    At Reed College, a small liberal-arts school in Portland, Oregon, a 39-year-old Saturday Night Live skit recently caused an uproar over cultural appropriation. In the classic Steve Martin skit, he performs a goofy song, “King Tut,” meant to satirize a Tutankhamun exhibit touring the U.S. and to criticize the commercialization of Egyptian culture. You could say that his critique is weak; that his humor is lame; that his dance moves are unintentionally offensive or downright racist. All of that, and more, was debated in a humanities course at Reed.But many students found the video so egregious that they opposed its...

    The FBI agent accused of lying about shooting at LaVoy Finicum's truck when Finicum was killed on January 26, 2016 will not be tried until May 8th next year. W. Joseph Astarita's trial has now been moved back twice. Meanwhile an investigation into Grant County, Oregon sheriff Glenn Palmer by Oregon's Justice Department has not been able to pin any wrongdoing on him. The investigation into Palmer began in response to complaints from the 911 call center director and the John Day, Oregon police chief. These complaints came as Palmer came under attack for calling for a negotiated end to...

    Brenda Tracy (left), talks with Sen. Jeff Merkley, Ron Wyden and PSU President... Oregon’s colleges and universities must resist any Trump administration plans to walk back federal rules directing how schools respond to sexual assaults on campus. That was the takeaway from a Monday morning roundtable discussion at Portland State University. Oregon Democratic Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and sexual assault survivor Brenda Tracy held an informal discussion with PSU Title IX leaders and sexual assault prevention staffers. The meeting came less than a month after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos rescinded Obama-era guidelines on how schools should handle...

    The official estimate of the deficit for Oregon's public pension system climbed by $2.4 billion Friday. As a result, state and local agencies and school districts face even higher pension costs over the next two decades than they had earlier expected. And the new deficit figure continues to fuel controversy over what the governor and state Legislature should do to ease those rate increases. The new debt figure is the result of a unanimous vote by the board that oversees the Oregon Public Employees Retirement System. They chose Friday to reduce an estimate of how much PERS expects to earn...

    Court documents say a white man called a black man the N-word, and told him he's "in the wrong neighborhood." According to court documents, Mathu Dwain Karcher was with his pit bull when he began closely following a black man, who told Karcher he wanted to give him space because he didn't like pit bulls. Karcher is then accused of telling his dog, 'Get 'em!' Because of a prior leg injury, the victim couldn't run away and the dog didn't end up attacking him. Police say Karcher then told the victim, "N-word, you're in the wrong neighborhood!" and said something...
