Oregon teacher loses it with anti lockdown protestors

What is it with some members of the teaching profession? This educator in Bend, Oregon decided to let loose with a whole string of profanity at anti-lockdown protestors.

The Jefferson County School District teacher has been placed on administrative leave.

We took a look at education in the US back in 2017.

Cocaine in. Plastic Straws out in Oregon

Yes, Oregon legislators have voted to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

This drug initiative will allow people arrested with small amounts of hard drugs to avoid going to trial, or serving jail time, by paying a $100 fine and attending an addiction recovery program.

Oregon’s House also voted in 2019 to prohibit restaurants from providing single-use plastic straws unless a customer asks.

It is this type of liberal logic we saw in Minneapolis when the council wondered why crime surged when the police were “reimagined”? Who knew.

The makers of Narcan will be happy.

Can I change my vote?

The “change my vote” phrase hit peak searches right after the second debate on Thursday –hitting the MAX limit of Google trends.

After Biden was caught lying on fracking & vowed to shut down the oil industry, the searches were particularly strong in Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Georgia, Texas and Wisconsin.

Among the states that do allow voters to change their early ballot after it’s been cast are: Wisconsin; Minnesota; Michigan; Pennsylvania; New York; Connecticut; and Mississippi.

Wisconsin

Wisconsin voters who voted early in person can recast their ballot as long as they do so by Saturday, October 31st. The deadline for absentee varies by city. Contact your city clerk for more information.

Minnesota

Minnesota also allows absentee voters to change their minds. The deadline is a week before the election.

Michigan

In Michigan, absentee voters can change their ballots if they have not yet been processed and tabulated, according to an official at the state’s Bureau of Elections.

If you want to change your absentee vote, contact the office of your city’s clerk’s office. The best chance to change your vote is as soon as possible before 4 p.m. Monday, the day before the election.

Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and Mississippi: Contact your city clerk to change your vote.

Man who foiled French train terrorist attack is running for Congress

Alek Skarlatos, one of three Americans who foiled a terrorist plot to gun down people on a French express train, is running for Congress.

He is up against an incumbent Democrat who has held his district for 33 years.

Refreshing grass roots campaign.

Instead of quelling the riots, Portland’s mayor will simply move house

One would think after almost 100 days of consecutive protests that the radical left mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, might eventually do something to quell the unrest, violence and murder on his streets.

One might have thought he had worked out back in July that joining the rioters in solidarity only resulted in them heckling and eventually ejecting him. Fail.

When the rioting eventually came to his house this week, that wasn’t a trigger to pull the plug on the destruction. Instead, he will move house. In an email to the other residents of his 114-unit high rise, the mayor expressed his “sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position…It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.

Does he not think that all he will end up doing is transfer the problem to his new neighbours?

When Trump offered Wheeler federal aid (aka  National Guard), the mayor wrote this open letter.

Dear President Trump:

Yet again, you said you offered to aid Portland by sending in federal law enforcement to our city.

On behalf of the City of Portland: No thanks.

We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery. Portlanders are onto you. We have already seen your reckless disregard for human life in your bumbling response to the COVID pandemic. And we know you’ve reached the conclusion that images of violence or vandalism are your only ticket to reelection.

There is no place for looting, arson, or vandalism in our city. There is no room here for racist violence or those who wish to bring their ideology of hate into our community. Those who commit criminal acts will be apprehended and prosecuted under the law.

Tens of thousands of Portlanders have peacefully protested and marched for the noble cause of fixing our broken criminal justice system. They are part of the proud progressive tradition of Portlanders fighting for justice – from racial justice to economic justice to environmental justice.

When you sent the Feds to Portland last month, you made the situation far worse. Your offer to repeat that disaster is a cynical attempt to stoke fear and distract us from the real work of our city.

In Portland, we are focused on coming together as a community to solve the serious challenges we face due to systemic racism, a global pandemic and an economic recession.

Stay away, please.

Signed,

Ted Wheeler
Mayor of Portland

As was the hangover this morning, everything is Trump’s fault. Perhaps Wheeler and Oregon Gov Kate Brown might reflect on the response of local law enforcement as to which branch of government has a clue what to do in order to end the civil unrest. That is right. Instead of looking after his constituents, succumbing to Trump Derangement Syndrome was the better option.

Trump’s tweet, “The big backlash going on in Portland cannot be unexpected after 95 days of watching and incompetent Mayor admits that he has no idea what he is doing. The people of Portland won’t put up with no safety any longer. The Mayor is a FOOL. Bring in the National Guard!” was on the money.

Trump also retweeted this criticism of Wheeler: “the useless f**king idiot and comic relief that gets everyone killed in every disaster movie,” adding “Tone down the language, but TRUE!”

Perhaps Mayor Wheeler might heed the words of Winston Churchill:

“An appeaser is one who feeds his friends to a crocodile in the hope it eats him last.”

The truth about Portland

Ami Horowitz hit the streets in Portland to interview the “peaceful” protestors who were, as ABC so eloquently put, “intensified.”

Amazing how few blacks appear to be protesting under the banner of black lives matter which ought to tell us something. Still, those peacefully pushing for change used choice words such as

– violence

– burn it down

– looting

One of the interesting parts of his short clip is around the 3 minute mark where an irate gentleman correctly points out that most of the fools rioting aren’t even black. As we often point out, it’s only social justice warriors who preach to us what needs to be done without consulting the very groups impacted.

That’s a myth!

Politicians will do what politicians do – live in denial.

We didn’t start the fire

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty turned on the Portland Police blaming its officers for sending in saboteurs to start fires and then falsely accuse peaceful protestors of arson. She has since walked back those remarks justifying it as,

Today I let my emotions get the most of me during council and the comment I made to the press. But I’m angry, frustrated, and horrified by what has happened these past 50 days.”

Isn’t it amazing that absolutely no footage has surfaced of such crimes being committed? Especially in a world where everyone is a roving reporter. Portland Police have even invited council members to join them on the front lines to see for themselves. None have taken up the offer.

Hardesty switched her accusation to Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler for his spineless inaction to prevent federal government officers targeting Portland because it is a sanctuary city.

How do these people get elected? As Daryl Turner, president of the Portland Police Association said,

Politicians bent on power, perpetuating misinformation and untruths, are just as guilty of using their privilege to hijack this movement as the rioters who are committing violent acts, burning, and looting,”

You’ll never guess the party affiliation of Hardesty!

Proud Parents?

How proud these parents must be to have their toddlers carry profane signs to protest Trump?

Even worse their radical parents have taught them how to say “F*ck The Police“.

Insane.

Portland Mayor & Oregon House Rep’s response on having it all under control

Dan Bongino spoke of just how embarrassing Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler’s response has been in his attempts to stop crime in Portland, Oregon. It was followed up by an even more pathetic explanation by Oregon House Rep Earl Blumenauer.

Are these people for real to think they have it ‘all under control’?
