Sheriffs give Oregon Gov Brown two words. One of them was “off”

This is what happens when cops push back on the very politicians who have advocated to hobble them. Basically politicians can’t have it both ways.

So encouraging to see this pushback so soon after the mayor of Nisswa was arrested by his own police department.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (Democrat) has finally decided she needs to do something to combat the lawlessness in Portland after 90 days of unrest. We thought it virtually impossible to be more incompetent than Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and her acceptance of the “summer of love” in CHAZ. Brown has outdone her.

To her surprise, both the Washington County and Clackamas County sheriffs have refused to send deputies to help the Portland PD to quell the violence.

It is not that they don’t want to help their fellow brothers and sisters in law enforcement. They see Brown’s policies as too high risk. The Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police offered more context with,

Unfortunately, due to the lack of support for public safety operations, the associated liability to agencies who would be assisting in Portland and the lack of accountability for those arrested committing criminal acts, we cannot dedicate our limited resources away from the communities we serve.

When local and state Democrat leaders have slammed police officers for months as racists and sought to defund departments while tying the hands of police officers to not to get involved in quelling the riots, forgive them for pushing back when the tables turn.

Gov Brown has been among the most despotic governors during lockdown. She even called child protective services on a hair salon owner for reopening her store to help feed the families of her staff. The owner also risked having her lease terminated.

You reap what you sow.

Oregon judge tosses out Governor’s stay-at-home laws

An Oregon judge has declared that the coronavirus restrictions enacted by Gov. Kate Brown (D) are “null and void” because her emergency orders were not approved by the state legislature after 28 days. The judge agreed with the lawsuit launched by 10 churches against the State of Oregon which argued that the emergency powers only lasted for a month and that to lengthen them required legislative approval which she did not seek!

Recently, Wisconsin and North Carolina also had stay-at-home orders overturned in court.

Naturally, Oregon Gov. Brown is seeking to overturn this ruling in the Oregon Supreme Court. How the tables turn when dictatorial governors seem happy to ignore the very rule of law that they wish to enforce on everyone else because they believe that they know better than everyone else.

As the churches that filed the lawsuit would say, “practice what you preach.

We wonder how quickly Brown will look to ram these orders through the state legislature so she can comply with the law and beat her peons into submission with the threat of child protective services as an added disincentive to ensure rogue constituents bend to her will even though 99.997% of the state’s residents haven’t succumbed to coronavirus.

Tiananmen Square Hairdresser protests against the totalitarians

Anyone would think Salem, Oregon hairdresser Lindsey Graham must have been using arsenic in the hair dye and sulphuric acid for facial treatments at her salon to have the authorities send child protective services to her home to interrogate her 6-year-old stepson and check bathroom sanitation was up to scratch.

This is the police state gone mad. How vile can governments be to take such actions to force compliance in a completely unrelated matter? The state fined her $14,000 for reopening and as the owner of the building (technically Graham is too) is threatening to terminate her lease.

The state’s draconian stay-at-home laws are forcing some to take drastic measures to feed their families and prevent self-made businesses from folding. As a self-employed organization, we too know how hard it is to build and sustain a client base.

How bad are things in Oregon?  It ranks 45th out of 50 states for COVID infections at 20% the national average per head of population and deaths at 85% below the rest of the country. Some will argue the measures are working. Others, like Graham, would argue that the lockdown laws are inappropriate given the salon staff wear masks and latex gloves.

While we never advocate people to break laws, the question is whether locking up normally obedient citizens when they can do the maths and work out 99.997% of the state’s population hasn’t died from coronavirus.

Forget that the number of people with COVID19 hospitalized in Oregon has fallen 63% in the last month to May 12th to 57 people. Fifty-seven. In a state of 4.3 million. So 99.999% of Oregon’s residents aren’t in hospital for this virus yet the state thinks it is justified to interrogate toddlers, threaten to rip up leases and fine citizens $14,000.

Graham has a Go Fund Me page which has raised $59,000 to help her business and legal costs. Seems like 1,200 donors want to send a “Go F**k You” message to the state’s Democratic Party Governor Kate Brown. They’re sick of the despotic behaviours of tyrants exercising powers based on hysteric assumptions and punishing normally law-abiding citizens who only have good intentions to provide for themselves rather than wait for the state to hand down morsels.

This is the point. Citizens are fast learning that politicians are only too happy to exercise these newfound powers based on junk science. It is truly amateur hour. Naturally, when politicians on fat taxpayer-funded salaries say they are “in this together” their words don’t resonate with those that actually work in the real world.
