    A Portland restaurateur has announced that he will close not one, but all of his five restaurants because of COVID-19. David Machado, a hotel-based restaurateur, will be permanently closing the rooftop bar Altabira City Tavern, Citizen Baker, Italian restaurant Nel Centro, Pullman Wine Bar and Merchant, and Northwestern bistro Tanner Creek Tavern. “There’s no pathway back to a viable business,” Machado says, referencing the many hurdles that the restaurants will likely face if reopened. There are a few factors that make David Machado Restaurants especially vulnerable to the perils of reopening — perhaps most obvious is that all of them...

    Gateway Pundit readers may recall a recent story we did that shed light on hundreds, possibly thousands, of Oregon voters who mysteriously had their party changed, most from Republican to Non Affiliated, without their permission, consent or knowledge, effectively denying them the right to vote in their party’s primary and disqualifying them from being Precinct Committee Persons.Today we found out the State Of Oregon is now working with Facebook to delete all mentions of this story. Earlier today Facebook gave The Gateway Pundit a strike for posting this story even though we had 32 statements from different Oregon Republican voters to...

    Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., pushed mail-in voting as a way to counter alleged Republican attempts to suppress minority votes. “It's really a great system," Merkley said, referring to mail-in voting. "One of those valuable things, which will become more and more important is it stops so many forms of voter suppression and voter intimidation. The Republicans are trying to stop poor people from voting, they’re trying to stop college students from voting, people of color from voting, Indian tribes from voting." He made those comments during a Tuesday interview with Sirius XM host Dean Obeidallah. Merkley added that mail-in balloting...

    SALEM, Ore. - Republican voters in Oregon’s vast 2nd Congressional District on Tuesday elected a former state senator to be their candidate to replace Rep. Greg Walden, who didn’t run for a 12th term in the conservative region covering the rural eastern and central part of the state. The mail-in primary was complicated by the coronavirus pandemic, as election workers kept social distancing in county offices while staffing levels were down. Election workers received instructions on handling ballots along with protective equipment from the Oregon National Guard and others. Former Vice President Joe Biden won Oregon’s Democratic presidential primary, outpacing...

    The problem with assessing political candidates is you never really know what they're like until they get ahold of power. And by then, of course, it's too late. The decent ones wield power with restraint and humility. They understand the limits have their own wisdom -- human wisdom -- and they also understand the inevitability of unintended consequences, which are the rule. They know they won't be in charge forever, and so they tread lightly. But the bad ones, they go crazy. And the more power they get, the crazier they go. Power is the drug they've been searching for....

    The Oregon Supreme Court Monday evening issued a stay blocking a decision earlier in the day by Baker County Circuit Court Judge Matt Shirtcliff that temporarily stopped the state from enforcing Gov. Kate Brown's executive orders restricting certain activities due to the coronavirus pandemic. That means the executive orders will remain in effect statewide. After a 20-minute hearing Monday morning at the Baker County Courthouse, Shirtcliff granted a preliminary injunction to the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against the governor May 6. The next step is for attorneys from both sides to submit responses to the Supreme Court related to...
  • HUGE SCANDAL: Oregon Changes Hundreds Of Republican Ballots To “Non Partisan” Denying GOP Voters the Right To Participate In Primary

    Disturbing news is coming out of Oregon, as hundreds of people are reporting that their voter registration was switched from Republican to non affiliated without their knowledge or permission. Oregon is entirely vote-by-mail, and ballots were sent out in the last week of April, and due this Tuesday at 8:00 PM. Many were shocked to open their ballot to find that they were no longer with the party they thought they were with, and they received non partisan ballots. As Oregon is a closed primary state, this effectively denies these people the right to vote in the party’s primary that...

    An Oregon judge on Monday halted statewide coronavirus restrictions, ruling in favor of churches and congregants who challenged the measures as an unlawful infringement on their religious freedoms. Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff's ruling temporarily suspends all of Gov. Kate Brown's (D) emergency coronavirus measures, not just those applying to religious gatherings. Brown vowed to immediately appeal to the Oregon Supreme Court. In lifting the restrictions, Shirtcliff said the church groups challenging the orders were likely to win a final ruling on the merits. Their initial showing persuaded him that the health orders’ harms to religious and economic freedom outweigh public...

    Lindsey Graham, the owner of Glamour Salon in Salem, Oregon, has been harassed by numerous government agencies for reopening her salon despite Gov. Kate Brown's (D) stay-at-home order. During a Friday press conference, Graham said multiple government agencies, including child protective services, have investigated her for wanting to reopen her salon and make a living. "And, if you can possibly believe this, on May 7th, Child Protective Services showed up at my home," she said, taking a deep breath while holding back tears. "They questioned my husband and I. They questioned my child, without me present. They searched our...

    A salon owner who reopened her business in defiance of Oregon’s stay-at-home order has been fined $14,000. Lindsey Graham, who runs Glamour Salon in Salem, reopened her business on May 5 and has continued to operate despite Gov. Kate Brown’s executive order that requires businesses such as salons to remain closed, CNN affiliate KPTV reported. Graham told KPTV last week that the move was necessary to pay her bills and provide for her family. “… At this point, I’m deciding that it’s more important for me to feed my family and pay the bills that are going to keep our...

    Naomi Pomeroy, the award-winning chef and owner of Northeast Portland restaurant Beast, today filed a class action lawsuit demanding her insurer cover business losses related to COVID-19. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in federal court, could set a precedent for thousands of businesses across the state—and possibly the country—that were denied insurance coverage for losses incurred when a pandemic shut down dining rooms. Many businesses, including Beast, had "business interruption" coverage through their insurance policies. But insurers across the nation have told policyholders that pandemic-related losses aren't covered. Beast, owned by Pomeroy, is now suing its insurance company, Berkley North...

    Over 70% of California’s economy has reopened with limitations, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday during his daily update on the state’s response to #COVID-19 “I know 70% is not 100%, and I recognize that ‘with modifications’ means ‘with restrictions,’ and ‘with restrictions’ means a struggle for businesses to get back where they were pre-pandemic,” Newsom said. Last Friday, the state moved into the next phase of reopening its economy by allowing some nonessential retailers - including clothing, music, toy, sporting goods and book stores - to reopen for curbside pickup. Still, the impact of the pandemic on the economy has...
