    James 3:16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. There is no question the most racist group in America is African Americans. Their hatred of every other group is being shown on the news every night. White America has for the past fifty years tried to get along with blacks and generally like them, however that relationship is becoming very one sided. You can only tolerate a group which only responds with violence to your outreach for so long before you finally have to cut bait. America has fought a war...

    kbkw ^ | December 19, 2014
    Representative Derek Kilmer (D-WA) called on Congressional leaders to reauthorize a program that provides key support to rural communities. Representatives Kilmer, Chris Stewart (R-UT), Jared Huffman (D-CA), and Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) led a letter urging the swift renewal of Secure Rural Schools (SRS) to help counties with national forests. Since national forest land cannot be taxed by counties or states, for more than 100 years the Forest Service has shared revenues from timber harvests on federal lands with the nearby communities. In the letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi the members pointed out that SRS...

    Flathead Beacon ^ | Dec 26, 2014 | Molly Priddy
    Flathead, Lincoln counties could lose millions if Secure Rural Schools is not reauthorized. Congress recently passed a $1 trillion spending bill to keep the United States government in operation, but missing from that bill are the funds that many counties in Montana have come to rely on in their annual budgets. The budget bill dropped $330 million in funding from Secure Rural Schools, a federal program run through the U.S. Forest Service providing funding for counties and schools. Last year, Flathead County received just over $1.6 million in SRS funding; roughly $1,067,000 went toward the county’s road department, and the...

    DENVER -- Chris Easterling was sick of relying on drug dealers in Minneapolis when he needed marijuana to help ease the pain of multiple sclerosis. They were flaky, often leaving the homeless man without the drug when he needed relief the most. So he moved to Denver, where legal pot dispensaries are plentiful and accessible. Easterling is among a growing number of homeless people who have recently come to Colorado seeking its legal marijuana, and who now remain in the state and occupy beds in shelters, according to service providers. While no state agency records how many homeless people were...

    Despite Ferguson and like-minded protesters thinking that the world is fixed on them, they’ve yet to realize that in lieu of the Grand Jury verdict, the world has moved on. 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. As KGW reports: Julian Rist, 19, was injured while he was in a group of protesters blocking traffic in the middle of West Burnside Street near 10th Avenue, according to Sgt. Pete...

    House Democrats blocked legislation on Thursday that would have permanently extended three tax credits for charitable giving, ending an effort to give nonprofits a last-minute victory. 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...

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...

    It seems incredible, but a single missing word could turn a water law into a government land grab so horrendous even a U.S. Supreme Court justice warned it would “put the property rights of every American entirely at the mercy of Environmental Protection Agency employees.” The missing word is “navigable.” The Obama administration is proposing a rule titled “Definition of ‘Waters of the United States’ Under the Clean Water Act,” which would strike “navigable” from American water law and redefine any piece of land that is wet at least part of the year, no matter how remote or isolated it...

    (Reuters) - Moves by some U.S. states to legalize marijuana are not in line with international drugs conventions, the U.N. anti-narcotics chief said on Wednesday, adding he would discuss the issue in Washington next week. Residents of Oregon, Alaska, and the U.S. capital voted this month to allow the use of marijuana, boosting the legalization movement as cannabis usage is increasingly recognized by the American mainstream. "I don't see how (the new laws) can be compatible with existing conventions," Yury Fedotov, executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), told reporters. Asked whether there was anything...

    The red tide that swept across the entire country Tuesday broke at the borders of Oregon. On the island, no Democratic incumbents were defeated, Sen. Jeff Merkley and Gov. John Kitzhaber and four Democratic congressmen were handily re-elected, and the party picked up one seat in the state House and at least one in the state Senate. It wasn't a huge legislative increase – except that virtually everyplace else, Democratic legislators (and majorities) were being hauled out to the recycling bin. More important, Oregon's Democratic electorate is not the same as in many states; it's one of the few places...

    For Oregonians who care about the cost of driving, the most significant development Tuesday might prove to be the upset of incumbent Republican state Sen. Betsy Close by Democrat Sara Gelser in District 8, which covers parts of Albany and Corvallis. Even before the Senate seat switcheroo, lawmakers were likely to consider a road-funding package during the 2015 session. Now, Oregonians may have to swallow two pieces of legislation that will raise the cost of commuting, shopping and everything else people do with their cars.

    Initiative 594 just passed in Washington State, bringing on residents mandatory gun background checks and making it a felony to privately purchase or even hand a gun to a friend without government permission. A story in the Seattle Times the morning after the mid-term elections, revealed the true motives of the I-594 campaign and its proponents. It didn’t take long for the other shoe to drop and the rest of their anti-rights agenda to be exposed. Other states they’re now targeting with initiatives include Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, and Maine. Our rights are and always have been their real target, not...

    A swarm of hundreds of earthquakes that has been striking a corner of the Nevada desert near the Oregon border for months has intensified in recent days, prompting new warnings from seismologists. About 750 earthquakes, mostly magnitude 2.0 to 3.0, have struck the area about 50 miles southeast of Lakeview, Ore., since the swarm started in July, said Ian Madin, chief scientist for Oregon's Department of Geology and Mineral Industries.

    John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. So America has woken up to the fact that the President has no clothes. They finally realize he was a figment of the Three Pillars of Marxism (the media, academia and the DNC) imagination and ran his Party out on a rail. The only ones too arrogant to realize it are Odumbo and the Three Pillars. They seem to think after America has two years of capitalistic oppression they will gladly turn their lives back over to their Marxist overlords, good luck with that plan as...

    OREGON CITY, Ore. — Twice illegally entering the United States, once deported, a man from El Salvador finds himself in a familiar spot of facing deportation. Aguirre pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in August and agreed to enter a diversion program. His blood-alcohol level was .12. He’s been living at the Augustana Lutheran Church in Northeast Portland since September after Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents showed up at his house in Fairview to arrest him. Aguirre has a criminal past in Oregon dating back to 1999 when he was convicted of selling drugs to undercover police officers in...

    Enough is enough. An important bloc of voters made their voices heard on Tuesday. Their message: Quit rewarding people who violate our immigration laws. They chose a sovereign nation over an illegal alien sanctuary nation, and they told politicians in both parties loud and clear: Put Americans first. Will D.C. listen? These voters are tired of politicians creating magnets for illegal immigrants. They're tired of preferential treatment for defiant border-crossers, visa overstayers and deportation fugitives. They're tired of the heavy costs and consequences of the government's systemic refusal to protect its borders and fully implement interior enforcement. Pay attention, both...
