    07/31/2015 8:19:51 AM PDT · by rktman · 26 replies ^ | 7/31/2015 | Jazz Shaw
    After nearly two days of hanging from the bridge, the dangling protesters were lowered one by one into the river. The protesters said they were cited with criminal trespassing and interfering with a peace officer. The moment that three protesters were removed, the Fennica began heading towards the St. Johns Bridge. “Kayaktivists” in the Willamette tried to move in front of the boat’s path but crews pushed them away and the ship passed under the bridge just before 6 p.m. PT. It was expected to reach Astoria by 11:50 p.m… Members of Portland Fire’s high-angle rescue team lowered down from...

    Portland: A naked man, playing violin in front of a downtown Portland courthouse on Saturday, refused to walk to a squad car and had to be carried by police. Police say they are not sure of the man’s identity. He told them his name is Matthew T Mglej and that he is 25 years old. Even the brand of the violin remains unknown. Mglej was jailed under the Portland city code forbidding indecent exposure. Police say they warned the man numerous times about his ‘lack of attire’, but he refused to dress himself or leave public view. City police refrain...

    PORTLAND – A Portland bar owner has been ordered to pay about $400,000 to a group of transgendered people he banned from his establishment last year. The Bureau of Labor and Industries civil rights division imposed the penalty against Chris Penner, owner of the Twilight Room Annex, the Oregonian reported Friday. Eleven people will share in the penalty, with amounts ranging from $20,000 to $50,000. It’s the first penalty imposed under the 2007 Oregon Equality Act, which protects the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Oregonians in employment, housing and public places. Some other complaints ended in settlements. The...

    Tre Arrow, enviro-nut Portland police today arrested Tre Arrow on an allegation of domestic-violence related fourth-degree assault. An officer arrested Arrow, 38, at 9:01 a.m. in the 5100 block of Northeast 28th Avenue. He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center an hour later and is being held on $5,000 bail.

    Mohamud Was Not EntrappedHow easily could you be persuaded to murder thousands of Americans? What would someone have to offer to entice you into killing someone? Or to entice you into killing thousands of people? The FBI has just caught Mohamed Osman Mohamud trying to kill 25,000 Americans at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland. That means the silly season is once again upon us. Not the holiday season — the entrapment season. It comes around, as surely as Cialis commercials follow NFL opening kickoffs, every time the FBI catches a jihadist trying to mass-murder Americans. You may have...

    ABC’s “Good Morning America” reports that two 911 calls were made from Kaine and Terri Moulton Horman’s Portland home last weekend, one with alleged threats of some kind lasting 13 minutes. FBI agent and ABC news consultant, Brad Garrett, said to file the type of emergency restraining order that he did, Kaine Horman would have had to make the case that his wife posed an immediate threat to him or their 18-month old daughter, according to Garrett. The restraining order prohibits Terri Horman from having contact with her other children, an older son and the toddler daughter. Kaine Horman is...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — Detectives investigating the disappearance of a 7-year-old Oregon boy two weeks ago put out a call Friday for information on the whereabouts that day of his stepmother — the last person to see him alive. Investigators refuse to say whether they have a suspect. Police passed out fliers Friday in hopes of jogging the memory of anybody who might have information on Kyron Horman's case, said Capt. Jason Gates of the Multnomah County sheriff's department. A questionnaire that accompanies the flier has gone to everybody who was at Skyline School on June 4, he said. The boy...

    The landscaper who claims Kyron Horman's stepmother offered him "a large sum of money" to kill her husband recently went back to Terri Moulton Horman at the request of police, according to a local report. Wearing a body wire and accompanied by an undercover officer during a June 26 meeting, the landscaper told Horman he wanted $10,000 or he'd go to authorities with the alleged murder-for-hire plot, The Oregonian reports. Horman, the stepmother of missing Oregon boy Kyron Horman who has come under police scrutiny, cut off the conversation fairly quickly, sources tell the paper.

    Authorities in Multnomah County, Ore. say the last reported sighting of Kyron Horman was walking down the hall of Skyline Elementary School on June 4, 2010. Kyron and his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, had come to school that morning to attend a science fair. At around 8:45 a.m., Kyron left his stepmom and headed to class. However, cops say, the second grader never made it. When Kyron didn't show up at his school bus stop later that afternoon, his parents called the school. Kyron was nowhere to be found.

    PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland Mayor Sam Adams could lose two homes in north Portland after falling behind on his mortgage payments. The homes in question sit side-by-side on North McClellan Street in the Kenton neighborhood and both are now in pre-foreclosure. KATU obtained a copy of two notices of default against the properties, showing the mayor has not paid a mortgage payment on either home for five months. With late fees, that adds up to over $10,000 in back payments. Adams said Tuesday his financial problems stemmed from the fact that he had to pay up front for legal bills...

    In October, as the stock market tanked and the economy shed 400,000 jobs, Matt Singer moved from Oxnard, Calif. to Portland, Ore. He didn't have a job, but he was attracted to the city's offbeat culture and hungered for change. Mr. Singer's plan was to get an editing or writing gig at an alternative weekly newspaper, the job he was doing in California. Seven months later, the 26-year-old is still without a steady job -- and still here. "I wasn't really aware of how bad the job situation was at the time," says Mr. Singer.

A city commissioner, Randy Leonard, told The Associated Press that Mr. Adams had left a phone message in the morning saying he had decided to remain in office.

Efforts to reach Mr. Adams were unsuccessful. The Oregonian’s editorial page has called for his resignation, as...

The second day brought a little interest and a local man protesting the city of Portland encouraging Illegal Activity within city limits.

    Blame the media for soldier burned in effigy By Judi McLeod Wednesday, March 21, 2007 Members of the left leaning mainstream media should collectively hang their heads in shame. A soldier has been burned in effigy at an anti-war protest in Portland. It likely never would have happened without what Rush Limbaugh coined, the “drive-by” media. In treasonous times, the desecration of G.I. Joe was never far away from reality. It began to gather momentum with a media that lionized the anti-war movement’s every protest and ended with a fairytale media deliberately suppressing the pro-troop side when the moment of...

    We are living through a dangerous time. The war on terror is against adherents to a radical human religion bearing little likeness to the Muslim faith, and committed to our eradication. Within this generation, those trained in Wahhabi jihadism will earn graduate degrees in physical sciences enabling them to plan and execute repeated cataclysmic attacks. These people envision individual beheadings replaced by scientists contemplating a map of New York. However, they need benign and/or supportive environments to organize damage on that scale. In Portland Oregon the proposed withdrawal from the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (Oregonian 12/21/04) would proclaim the...

Such warrants are obtained in cases where people are suspected of having direct knowledge about a crime or to allow time for further investigation into the witness.

Thousands of boisterous but generally orderly protesters angered by a range of Bush administration policies jeered the presidential motorcade Thursday as it rolled into the gated University of Portland campus for a $2,000-a-plate fund-raising lunch.

The Portland Police Bureau said it could confirm six arrests. Protesters burned at least one American flag. There were no massive confrontations with the scores of black-clad police from six agencies in riot gear, a marked...
