    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s progressive delusions seem to have gotten worse since he was tear-gassed while being at the riot as other rioters were trying to set fire to the federal courthouse. Wheeler now wants to talk with the DHS about negotiating a “ceasefire” and the removal of increased federal law enforcement agents from Portland. Commissioner @JoAnnPDX and I are calling for an immediate meeting with Department of Homeland Security leadership on the ground in Portland and with Acting Secretary @DHS_Wolf to discuss a cease-fire and the removal of heightened federal forces from Portland. — Mayor Ted Wheeler (@tedwheeler) July...

He noted that Crook County has had a grand total of one case of CCP coronavirus, and that it was time to get back to work....

    Big apartment owners are forecast to post strong earnings when they start reporting this week, but a number of state-sponsored rent-control measures are starting to raise longer-term concerns. While most of the dozen or so proposals aimed at curbing rent increases are in their early stages, some states have already taken action. Oregon passed a law in February that capped rent increases to 7% plus the local inflation rate. Democrats in the Colorado legislature introduced a bill this month to repeal a longstanding ban on rent control, which would allow local governments to set their own rent limits. New York...
