    "Acting upon reliable information, a federal deputation laid a deadly ambush" "The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" as recorded by Georgie Fame (1967) It was indeed the work of an informant Mark McConnell, one of at least 15 used by the FBI at the Oregon Standoff protest, that set the stage for a massive FBI led "felony traffic stop" operation that ended up killing LaVoy Finicum and injuring Ryan Bundy on January 26, 2016 along US Route 395 in Harney County, Oregon.

    Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Tim Scott torpedoed a conservative nominee to the Ninth Circuit appeals court on Thursday whom even liberals called qualified for the bench, citing college-era political comments, energizing Democrats, and creating a new line of attack against the confirmations of dozens of other judicial picks, including Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Ryan Bounds, an Oregon federal prosecutor who clerked for Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain on the Ninth Circuit, had an impressive array of credentials that impressed people on the left and the right. Even the left-wing American Bar Association (ABA) unanimously voted to rate Bounds as...

    In a dramatic move Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell withdrew the nomination of President Donald Trump’s pick for the Ninth Circuit, Ryan Bounds, after reports surfaced that his nomination didn’t have enough votes for confirmation. Bounds, an assistant U.S. attorney in Oregon for the last eight years, was the Trump administration’s first nominee to the Ninth Circuit, named in September to replace Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain, for whom Bounds clerked. O’Scannlain took senior status at the end of 2016. Both of Bounds’ home-state senators, Democrats Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, opposed his nomination. They withheld their blue slips for Bounds,...

    The nation's top voting machine maker has admitted in a letter to a federal lawmaker that the company installed remote-access software on election-management systems it sold over a period of six years, raising questions about the security of those systems and the integrity of elections that were conducted with them.

Irony,” said the gallery in a Tuesday post on Facebook.

Jeff Merkley speculated about the existence of a “pee tape” with President Donald Trump during an interview with BuzzFeed. “Do you think Vladimir Putin has something on him?” BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith asked Merkley during a sit-down interview, noting Trump’s reluctance to ever criticize the Russian president. “I think it’s likely, yeah,” Merkley confirmed.

    A man parked his motorcycle on the sidewalk Saturday morning, ruining the aesthetic of the last remaining Blockbuster in the continental United States. "You can't park there," general manager Sandi Harding told the man as he walked into the store in Bend, Oregon. "People are trying to take pictures." The man paused for a beat. There was confusion in his response. "Trying to take pictures?" Somehow he had missed the past decade, when Blockbuster the video rental behemoth became Blockbuster the fallen victim of modernity.In 2004, at the company's peak, 9,000 Blockbuster outlets studded city blocks and suburban strip malls...

    A bipartisan pair of senators are calling on the Justice Department to investigate whether Russian intelligence services posed as an Islamic extremist hacker group that sought to harass U.S. military families. Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday asking him to investigate whether a hacking group called the “Cyber Caliphate” launched an intimidation campaign against members of military families in 2015. “If substantiated, the claims about APT28 posing as the Cyber Caliphate could be the first public evidence that influence operations have specifically targeted American military families,” Wyden and...

    There’s virtually no chance that the uber-progressive Oregon legislature would ever repeal the state’s oldest-in-the-nation sanctuary law, which is why locals worried about illegal immigration have turned to the voters. The Stop Oregon Sanctuaries campaign submitted roughly 110,000 signatures last week to qualify an anti-sanctuary measure for the November ballot, more than the 88,000 required, stunning liberal activists and laying the groundwork for a landmark ballot battle. “This has national ramifications and our opponents know that,” said Cynthia Kendoll, president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, which led the petition drive. “The thing that people don’t realize is that very seldom...

    President Trump on Tuesday pardoned a pair of Oregon ranchers whose arson conviction became a focus for opponents of federal government land ownership. Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son Steven, 49, were convicted in 2012 and sent to prison on arson charges. They had set a series of fires on their ranch that spread to federal land. The Hammonds’ case became the inspiration for the 40-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. The organizers wanted to protest federal land ownership. The Hammonds distanced themselves from the occupiers and didn't endorse the action. In a statement Tuesday...

    President Donald Trump pardoned two Oregon ranchers forced back into prison in 2016 to serve out the rest of the mandatory minimum sentence required under an anti-terrorism law. “The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” the White House said in a statement. “The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges. Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted of committing arson on federal land in 2012 under an anti-terrorism...

    While President Trump seems to have it right in his consideration of pardons for Dwight and Steven Hammond, treated unjustly with five year manadatory sentences for lighting a backfire to protect their land, the political machine seems to be grinding out credit for itself for any pardons that may be coming. In this mid-term election year Oregon's leading Republican politician Congressman Greg Walden broke his silence last week to call for a pardon of the Hammonds. Its an issue that he remained silent about for years, never saying a word about it. He followed that up with a personal meeting...
