    Dem Senator Jeff Merkley from OR goes on Maddow show, says Trump diverted 10M dollars in emergency funds from FEMA to go TO ICE in order to build detention camps. Maddow claims Homeland Security "confirmed" this story. Problem: It's not true. Homeland Security was contacted and said its BS. FEMA contacted Merkley's office who told them, "It's a TV hit. You take it when you can". Short video.

Her body was several miles from where searchers found her car last week near a ranger station. ... Her body had injuries consistent with a cougar attack and a medical examiner...

    ORTLAND, Oregon—Outfitted in a flak jacket and fighting gloves, Enrique Tarrio was one of dozens of black, Latino, and Asian men who marched alongside white supremacists in Portland on Aug. 4. Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, is president of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys, who call themselves “Western chauvinists,” and “regularly spout white-nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Last month, prior to the Patriot Prayer rally he attended in Portland, Tarrio was pictured with other far-right activists making a white-power hand sign. Last year, he and other Proud Boys...

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The discovery of a black Lab named Lucy led to the unravelling of a criminal case Monday against an Oregon man who had begun serving a 50-year prison sentence. Joshua Horner, a plumber from the central Oregon town of Redmond, was convicted on April 12, 2017, of sexual abuse of a minor. In the trial, the complainant testified Horner had threatened to shoot her animals if she went to the police about the alleged molestation, and said she saw him shoot her dog, killing it, to make his point. Six months after a jury convicted Horner...

    Employees at a Pacific Northwest burger chain triggered a new policy after employees wore buttons that read “Abolish ICE” and “No one is illegal” with their uniforms. Ten employees of fast food restaurant Burgerville, located in Portland, Ore., were sent home for a day last month when they refused to remove the buttons while on their shift, The Oregonian reported. The silent protest came amid national outrage regarding the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy that previously separated thousands of migrant children from their parents at the US-Mexico border. Calling for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be dissolved has...

    The union representing Burgerville employees in the Portland area on Friday blasted the company's move to ban buttons on their uniforms , a decision handed down as some workers continue to wear pins proclaiming "Abolish ICE" and other political statements. The Burgerville Workers Union in a tersely worded statement called the new policy, announced Thursday and effective Sept. 13, "disgusting" and "deeply disturbing." The group also accused the company of caving to pressure generated by those angered over the buttons, whom the union appeared to uniformly cast as a horde of right-wing bigots. Portland Burgerville workers serve 'Abolish ICE' message,...

    Sen. Ron Wyden said Thursday that it appears Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress in 2006 when he testified about when he learned of a post-9/11 surveillance program. The Oregon Democrat said in an emailed statement to the Washington Examiner that documents published by the New York Times appear to contradict Kavanaugh’s testimony. “Yes, the documents made public this week strongly suggest Brett Kavanaugh was involved in discussions about the Bush administration’s illegal warrantless wiretapping programs, and that he misled the American people in his 2006 testimony,” Wyden said.

    During aggressive protests by criminal Occupy Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) rioters at federal facilities in Oregon, Portland’s Mayor implemented dangerously restrictive police procedures that ordered officers to ignore calls for help from federal law enforcement personnel under attack. Instead of proactive support, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) were limited to a passive “liaison” role with the Federal Protection Service (FSP). According to records obtained by Judicial Watch, PPB officers were only allowed to respond to life-threatening attacks and 911 calls made by ICE agents and FPS officers. Portland’s Mayor, Ted Wheeler, also serves as the city’s Police Bureau Commissioner. Wheeler...

Notes at the scene indicated Jordan was the shooter, police spokesman Lt. Clint Burleigh told KTVZ-TV.

    "...It was no surprise that Gov. Jay Inslee was promising the state would take the feds to court over a proposed change in the Clean Power Plan rules regarding coal-burning generating facilities. "...The real surprise was one of Inslee’s reasons for challenging the proposed rule to allow states more control over emissions from coal-burning power plants, a reason that suggests either an unfamiliarity with geography or meteorology. (1st money quote - from the village idiot): "...“We’re breathing smoke from Mississippi,” he told reporters. “We’re breathing smoke from the rest of the United States.” "...Weather patterns generally go from west to...

    A registered Democrat and Bernie Sanders supporter has been beaten up by left-wing militants for carrying an American flag at a protest rally. Paul Welch, a 38-year-old self-described 'slightly progressive leftist' took the flag to the Portland rally earlier this month in a bid to 'take it back' from the conservative movement, according to Oregon Live. The Oregon man joined hundreds of counter-protesters gathered at City Hall when he was approached by two Antifa activists who demanded he drop the'fascist symbol', ripping it from his hands and leaving him recoiled on the ground with a bloody wound to his head.

    Oregon Gov. Kate Brown positioned herself early on as a leader of the anti-Trump opposition, but the state’s never-ending panoply of protest activity has backfired on her re-election bid with voters suffering from resistance fatigue. Ms. Brown, who was expected to coast to victory in deep-blue Oregon, has found herself deadlocked in the latest polls with state Rep. Knute Buehler, an affable orthopedic surgeon whose moderate brand of Republicanism is attracting crossover voters. That includes Ben West, who supported Ms. Brown’s previous bid for office but was horrified by the mobs that shut down the Immigration and Custom Enforcement office...

    The major threat of the “blue wave” is that it might sweep over not only purple but even red districts and states, tossing control of the House back to the Democrats and threatening the Senate majority. But what about that “red wave” that the President keeps talking about? Here’s an interesting possibility I didn’t see coming. What if a partial red wave washed up on the shores of Oregon, flipping the governorship there to the Republicans? The current officeholder, Kate Brown, looked like a sure bet, particularly in the era of the Trump Resistance. But if that’s the case, why...

    A Portland-based ice cream shop partnered with NARAL to create a controversial abortion-inspired ice cream flavor to “save Roe” from President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. For a limited time, What’s The Scoop? customers can order a pint of “Rocky Roe v. Wade” for $9.50 to “help defend reproductive freedom,” according to a NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon fundraiser poster. “Is the hot weather and political climate getting you down? It’s time to eat more ice cream!” NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon wrote on its Facebook page.

    August 20, 2018 Dear Clergy, Religious and Lay Faithful of the Archdiocese of Portland, Praised be Jesus Christ! Like many of you, I was shocked, angered, and discouraged by the recent revelations concerning former Cardinal and retired Archbishop of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick. Then, on the eve of the Feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother, came the release of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report on clergy sex abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, covering more than seven decades. These horrific revelations are particularly painful in light of what victims in our own Archdiocese have suffered and the impact that...

    Warning: This story contains graphic content Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...
