    There are a lot of moving parts to this one so let’s quickly recap. There have been 95 straight nights of protests in Portland since the death of George Floyd and on 25 occasions those have been declared riots. Mayor Ted Wheeler has been more vocal lately about denouncing the violence and in response the mob has targeted him at his home with occupations, vandalism, arson and rioting. Mayor Wheeler has now told his neighbors that for their safety he plans to move. Meanwhile, after a pro-Trump individual was murdered in the city Saturday allegedly by an Antifa supporter, the...

    Portland is still engulfed by antifa violence (as the Democrats side with the violent rioters), America’s history and heritage is under direct and unapologetic assault, covid hysteria is still hamstringing the nation’s economic life and prosperity, and on Monday, Joe Biden offered an all-purpose remedy: “One of the things I think is important, I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” I’ll bet you’re wishing you had thought of that.
  • Do the Democrats need Hillary or Michelle to enter the race?

    The East Oregonian ^ | October 17, 2019 | Carl Golden
    It began with 25 candidates. It’s been reduced by half, yet concern persists among Democrats that the party should look beyond the still standing contenders and seek an individual capable of party unification and persuade him or her to enter the race. It is an acknowledgement that each of the current candidates is burdened by baggage — ideological or personal — but seem determined to take the contest through a string of expensive, exhausting and bitter primaries. Former Vice President Joe Biden, whose lead has shrunk to single digits or vanished altogether, has been hurt by periodic mental lapses and...
  • Trump pummels Dems in Keizer campaign giving (Oregon)

    Keizer Times ^ | August 2, 2019 | Eric A. Howald
    President Donald Trump is receiving the lion’s share of presidential campaign giving among Keizer residents. Trump has received $2,926.24 from Keizerites since the beginning of the year. That total derives from 37 contributions, small and large, made by 12 donors. Earlier this week, ProPublica shared quarterly reports from every state on campaign giving since the beginning of the year. Keizertimes culled the contributions from Keizer residents for this story. Trump’s biggest financial supporter in Keizer made six contributions totaling $600 since January. The largest single donation, $375, from a Keizer resident also went to Trump. For the Democrats, Sen. Bernie...

    The Portland Tribune ^ | June 20, 2019 | Jim Redden
    Last week's report by CNN and The Hill that President Donald Trump's campaign is considering spending money in Oregon sparked two predictable responses — disbelief that any Republican would consider campaigning for a national office in such a Democratic state and a flurry of fundraising appeals by Democrats trying to cash in on the news. Among others, the Democratic Party of Oregon sent out a fundraising email on June 11 saying, "Trump's already laying the groundwork to pull off a big upset here in Oregon in 2020 — but together, we can make sure he doesn't come close. Make a...

    CNN Politics ^ | June 11, 2019 | Dana Bash
    The Trump campaign is considering putting resources into Oregon, CNN has learned, a state where Hillary Clinton beat the President by 11 percentage points in 2016. In fact, Oregon is so blue that it has not voted for a Republican for president since 1984. But the Trump campaign is flush with cash and is looking for ways to spend its money and time wisely while Democrats duke it out for the chance to run against President Donald Trump. CNN obtained a memo to the Trump campaign from pollster Tony Fabrizio about ideas for "expanding the map" to give the President...

    Fox News ^ | November 18, 2018 | Louis Casiano
    Being mayor of Portland, Ore., may have gotten to Ted Wheeler. On Thursday, after finishing a speech at the Oregon Health Forum in which he was heckled, Wheeler mumbled, “I can’t wait for the next 24 months to be over,” indicating he may not seek re-election, the Oregonian reported. (TWEET-AT-LINK) "If you know me, you know I mutter quite a bit,” Wheeler said in a statement issued later in the day. “Not one of my most redeeming qualities. I will make a decision next year with my family if I am running for re-election." In previous media interviews, Wheeler has...

    Dem Senator Jeff Merkley from OR goes on Maddow show, says Trump diverted 10M dollars in emergency funds from FEMA to go TO ICE in order to build detention camps. Maddow claims Homeland Security "confirmed" this story. Problem: It's not true. Homeland Security was contacted and said its BS. FEMA contacted Merkley's office who told them, "It's a TV hit. You take it when you can". Short video.

    The Oregonian ^ | July 31, 2018 | Lydia Gerike
    If you don't have anything nice to say, should you really say it on Twitter? Especially when it's about the first lady. And compares her to a prostitute. "Did you know the First Lady works by the hour? #thinkdirty #hoebag," Mark Roberts, an Oregon Independent running for U.S. Congress, tweeted Monday night. This kind of Twitter behavior displayed by Roberts is not new. He has a history of tweeting provocative replies and suggestive comments about women, including lawmakers and other public figures. We've included them at the end of this article. But Roberts sparked particular criticism Monday in his reply...

    The Hill ^ | May 29, 2017 | Cyra Master
    A top Oregon Republican said Monday he’s considering using militia groups for security purposes after a man directing anti-Muslim rhetoric at two women fatally stabbed two men and injured a third this weekend. Multnomah County Republican Party Chairman James Buchal told The Guardian that recent protests have prompted members of the Portland GOP to consider security alternatives. “I am sort of evolving to the point where I think that it is appropriate for Republicans to continue to go out there,” he told The Guardian. “And if they need to have a security force protecting them, that’s an appropriate thing too.”...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | March 30, 2017 | Tim Hains
    Sen. Jeff Merkely says a decision to use the 'Nuclear Option' to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court would "destroy the integrity of the Senate" and "highly politicize the [Supreme] court." "If this process goes through, every 5-4 decision will be one we will look at and say that it is not really legitimate, because that Supreme Court Justice wasn't really legitimate," he said. "If we change it to a simple majority, that means the next president will have an easier time approving appointments, and might decide to go further to the left or right outside of the mainstream....

    SALEM — In the parking lot at the Republican state convention Saturday, the bumpers of several cars captured the story of some of the hundreds of party insiders inside: Donald Trump wasn’t a top choice, but we’ll rally behind him. Dozens of cars at the state fairgrounds in Salem donned stickers and magnets supporting the party’s slate of statewide and congressional candidates, conservative causes and various current and former Republican presidential candidates. But on another car, and at least one more like it, stickers summed up the second-choice vibe of a few party members inside. One sported stickers in support...

    CNN ^ | 04/27/2016 | By Cassie Spodak
    Portland, Oregon (CNN) — John Kasich made a deal to go one-on-one with Donald Trump in Oregon, and he's wasting no time. Wednesday morning saw the release of a new TV ad in Oregon, touting that rival "Ted Cruz pulled out of Oregon" and that Kasich "is the only one that can stop Trump and defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall." The ad doesn't describe the agreement reached by the Cruz and Kasich campaigns that had Kasich pulling his resources out of Indiana, with Cruz doing the same in Oregon and New Mexico. The plan allows for each candidate to...

    The leading pro-life group in Oregon today issued its endorsement for pro-life Republican candidate Ted Cruz for President. Oregon Right to Life says Cruz has a sterling pro-life record that it described as “impeccable.” “ORTL PAC is pleased to endorse Senator Cruz,” said Gayle Atteberry, executive director of ORTL. “His record on pro-life issues is impeccable. We can trust that as president, he will do all he can to protect unborn babies. That includes the all-important decisions he would make in nominating new Supreme Court justices. “Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders,” said Atteberry, “support abortion on demand, from conception...

    Oregon Public Broadcasting ^ | April 11, 2016 | Jeff Mapes
    The presidential campaigns are becoming more active in Oregon, with Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Ted Cruz appearing to be the most organized in their respective races for the state’s May 17 primary. Sanders has opened four offices in the state – in Portland, Eugene, Bend and Medford – and his state director, Monte Jarvis, said hundreds of volunteers are gearing up for a major door-to-door canvassing effort in advance of the Democratic primary. On the Republican side, Cruz is recruiting a network of statewide volunteers and has already made a big push to get as many supporters as possible...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Donald Trump continues to be the front-runner in the GOP presidential nomination race, but he's languishing in fourth place in a new poll of Utah voters. The new UtahPolicy.com poll by Dan Jones & Associates comes as former Utah governor and 2012 presidential candidate Jon Huntsman Jr. is suggesting Trump has a shot at winning the White House. "People really are hungry for change. They were last time, but it hadn't reached the 212-degree boiling point. This time it has," Huntsman told USA Today's weekly "Capital Download" video series. Huntsman said that's why he thinks Trump,...
  • Oregon county commissioner Faye Stewart to run for US Senate

    11/19/2015 5:22:30 PM PST · by Clintonfatigued · 13 replies
    Faye Stewart, a county commissioner in Oregon, announced Thursday that he will seek the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. The Lane County commissioner will try to win the May primary and oust Democratic incumbent Ron Wyden, who is heavily favored to win the general election. Republicans have not won a statewide race in Oregon since 2002. Stewart said he is running because "our citizens are broken, and they need help." He said the federal government has neglected the needs of Oregon counties while running up debt and mishandling natural resources. "We need all of Oregon strong and prosperous, not just...

    Republican frontrunner says students and instructors should have been armed. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday channelled the 1970s action star Charles Bronson in defending second amendment rights in the aftermath of the shooting at an Oregon community college that left nine people and the shooter dead. Mr Trump said in a rally in suburban Nashville that he has a handgun carry permit in New York. He added that any attacker would be “shocked” if he tried to assault him, because he would emulate Bronson in the vigilante film Death Wish. Mr Trump criticized “gun-free zones”, saying that the...

    Polizette ^ | October 3, 2015 | Keith Koffler
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush scored just 4 percent of the vote in the latest national GOP survey, a catastrophically low number that is sure to raise grave concern among the establishment donors who have invested millions in his success for the 2016 presidential race. The poll, released Friday by the Pew Research Center, shows Bush slipping into sixth place behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is at 6 percent. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Bush’s archrival for establishment backing, has twice Jeb’s support, with 8 percent. Rubio is tied with Fiorina, whose tally suggests the steam may have run out...

    “…they try to use these tragedies as an excuse to come after the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. It’s unconstitutional, it’s cynical, and it’s wrong.” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Thursday criticized President Obama for the comments he made following the mass shooting in Oregon that left 10 people dead. “Well, unfortunately that is the approach with President Obama on every issue, is that he seeks to tear us apart, he seeks to politicize it and it’s worth remembering he is ideological and he’s a radical,” Cruz stated on the Mark Levin Show. “You know, as his former chief of...
