    When one talks about the Bundy Family, the first thing that springs to mind is the standoff in Nevada in 2014. However, perhaps even more important is the standoff and occupation at Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. Indeed, the two events are often conflated because Ammon Bundy is the son of Cliven Bundy, the man who stood up to the federal government over “grazing fees” on Bureau of Land Management land. The occupation was a highlight for both the militia and the sovereign citizen movement as well as proponents of states’ rights. The main argument from those occupying...
  • Seattle and Portland finally decide they don’t want rioting, but bail reform could hurt clampdown

    Leaders in Oregon and Washington are finally pledging an end to near-nightly chaos caused by antifa and other radical groups they gave free rein to while former President Donald Trump was in office. But they have a problem with their proposed crackdown. Bail reforms in liberal states are hoisting Democrats by their own petard...

    PORTLAND, OR- Last September, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler decided that his officers, despite the fact they had been dealing with nearly four months of nightly, violent riots in the city, decided he was going to take one of their tools away from them…the use of tear gas. Apparently, those rules don’t apply to Wheeler, however. According to the New York Post at the time, Wheeler, who had also been gassed during one of those protests said “we need something different” in order to put a stop to the nightly anarchy taking place in Portland. Wheeler, however, doesn’t appear to follow...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 21, 2021 | WSJ Editorial Board
    President Trump has left office, but peace and harmony have not descended upon the land. Left-wing rioters rampaged in the streets of Portland, Ore., and Seattle on Wednesday, no matter Joe Biden’s unity plea. In Portland, rioters smashed the windows of the Democratic Party headquarters and scrawled graffiti on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building. Demonstrators carried signs reading “we are ungovernable” and “we don’t want Biden—we want revenge! For police murders, imperialist wars, and fascist massacres.” Portland police say some rioters carried “pepper ball guns, electronic crowd control weapons similar to Tasers, large fireworks, shields and rocks” and that...
  • DEFAZIO INTRODUCES FINANCIAL TRANSACTION TAX ACT TO REIN IN WALL STREET AND GENERATE REVENUE FOR NATIONAL PRIORITIES

    Today, U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (OR-04) introduced the Wall Street Tax Act, legislation to create a new tax on financial transactions that would generate billions in revenue, while reducing speculative trading and volatility in the market. “High-frequency traders front-run the market and drive up prices for individuals, pension funds and other value investors,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio. “Some days high-frequency traders trade billions of shares that they sometimes hold for only seconds or less. They reap enormous financial benefits for themselves and their privileged elite investors but add no value to our economy. Congress needs to rein in excessive speculative...
  • Big Tech Expose Themselves With Crackdown on Antifa Accounts

    Antifa are bad again, you guys. That’s the message being sent by the big tech companies tonight. After years of ignoring the threat and allowing these domestic terrorists to operate freely, Twitter has started banning prominent Antifa accounts, including the account for a bookstore that operates as a training center for the group. What changed? I bet you know exactly what changed. Joe Biden is a miracle worker. All he had to do was take office, thereby setting up a situation where Antifa was embarrassing for the wrong side, and poof, they are cancelled. Of course, they’ve been running wild...

    A Democratic Party headquarters was damaged, an American flag burned, and marchers filled the streets in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, following Biden’s inauguration. Antifa was reportedly behind the activity, known during the summer as “peaceful protests.” The New York Times reported that “federal agents in camouflage — now working under the Biden administration — blanketed streets with tear gas and unleashed volleys of welt-inducing pepper balls as they confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown.” Some in the group of about 150 people smashed windows and spray-painted anarchist symbols at the political party...

    Despite dire warnings from the mainstream media and the nation’s law enforcement that suggested pro-Trump groups would orchestrate mass acts of violence on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration, black block wearing Antifa members in Portland appear to have caused the only civil unrest of the day.As National File previously reported, Portland Antifa has attacked the Democratic Party of Oregon’s headquarters.A new video shows the words “f**k Biden” scrawled prominently near the entrance, on one of the few windows left intact from the Antifa assault.As National File previously reported, this violence took place this evening and seems to have lasted...

    An exceptional atmospheric river rated Category 5 (AR 5) is soaking the Pacific Northwest, bringing flooding rain and strong winds in parts of coastal Oregon and Washington, where up to 8 600 customers were left without power on Tuesday, January 12, 2021. Threats of flooding, mudslides, and avalanches continue into Wednesday morning, January 13, before the moisture flow heads offshore and dissipates. In Oregon, Portland General Electric reported more than 5 000 customers lost electricity on Tuesday night, while 3 600 were without power in Multnomah County during the severe weather's onslaught.

    Antifa members in Portland, Oregon are doing their best to take down conservative journalist, Andy Ngo, who has been covering their violent behavior for years. In fact, back in 2019, Ngo was attacked with a cement milkshake simply for documenting Antifa's protests and riots that almost always turn violent. Ngo has written a book about Antifa's thuggery, called "Unmasked," about how they target people and how their actions threaten our democracy. The book is available for preorder and is set to be released early next month. When Antifa received word that Ngo's book was for sale at Powell's bookstore, they...

    A federal appeals court in California on Thursday ruled to lift a ban on President Donald Trump’s proclamation that blocks immigrants from entering the United States if they lack health insurance or the means to pay for hospital bills. In a Dec. 31 opinion (pdf), the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said that Trump acted within his authority when, in October 2019, he signed the Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry of Immigrants Who Will Financially Burden the United States Healthcare System. The ruling reverses a federal court decision to block the implementation of the president’s...
