Judge Crushes Berkeley Antifa Leftist’s Attempt to Hide Her Activism on Public Time.

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


We first saw Yvette Felarca attacking a guy who came to hear Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley in February of 2017. Before the night was over Antifa and BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) had started fires, caused violence and shut down the speech by the controversial social commentator.

Felarca leading the mob attacked on this guy.

She’d created quite a name for herself in the official Leftist thugocracy as noted here by the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch:

“Felarca is a prominent figure in By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), a group founded by the Marxist Revolutionary Workers League that protests conservative speaking engagements. In 2016, Felarca and two of her allies were arrested and charged with several crimes, including felony assault, for inciting a riot in Sacramento. Earlier this year, Felarca was ordered to stand trial for assault.”

Worse, we learned that the diminutive street thug was actually a paid government employee working as a middle school teacher!

That’s when Judicial Watch sought legally available public records on the teacher from the Berkeley Unified School District:

“Felarca had sued the BUSD in federal court to keep the school district from fulfilling its legal obligation to provide Judicial Watch with records of their communications mentioning: Felarca, Antifa, and/or BAMN. Judicial Watch also asked for Felarca’s personnel file.”

Felarca sued to block the school district from giving over the legal records and lost. Big.

“U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria, Northern District of California, who had previously ruled that Felarca’s lawsuit was “entirely frivolous,” wrote in his ruling awarding legal fees to Judicial Watch that Felarca and her co-plaintiffs’ First Amendment claims were “premised on the obviously baseless assumption” that the First Amendment condemns the speech of some while condoning the ideological missions of others.”

The teacher, who apparently didn’t know that the First Amendment applied to all Americans, even people with whom her highness disagrees, not only had her lawsuit thrown out, she was ordered to pay all of Judicial Watch’s court costs and legal fees.

“Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD), and two co-plaintiffs were ordered to pay Judicial Watch $22,000 in attorney’s fees and $4,000 in litigation costs.

Judge Chhabria added that “The plaintiffs also mischaracterized the documents under review” [shocker] and that the plaintiffs “failed to grapple with the role Ms. Felarca played in making herself a topic of public discourse through her physical conduct at public rallies and her voluntary appearance on Fox News.

Along with Felarca’s $20,000 payment, co-plaintiffs Lori Nixon and Larry Stefl were ordered by Judge Chhabria to pay Judicial Watch $1,000 each (Yvette Felarca, et al., v. Berekely Unified School District, et al. (No. 3:17-cv-06282-VC)).

Judicial Watch is entitled to attorney’s fees because the plaintiffs’ lawsuit was frivolous, and their litigation conduct was unreasonable,” Judge Chhabria wrote in his order.”

The humorless woman who claimed that people on the right, such as Yiannopoulos, with whom she disagreed were “fascists,” “killers” who believed in “genocide” and said that the gay and (born) Jewish Yiannapoulos was a homophobic genocidal man bent on another “holocaust” and didn’t have the right to speak.

“This is a huge victory for Judicial Watch against Antifa and the violent left,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “Ms. Felarca attacked Judicial Watch without basis and the court was right to reject her ploy to deny our ‘right to know’ because we don’t share her violent left views.”

Here’s Why the Imam of Portland, Or. Jihadi Terrorist Factory Got Kicked Out of the Country

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


The Imam of the Islamic Center of Portland, Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman Kariye, has been stripped of his citizenship and booted from the United States.

Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman Kariye, imam of the Islamic Center of Portland, aka Masjed As-Saber (Mosque of the Sword)

Kariye has been on the Department of Homeland Security “no fly list” since after 9/11. Local terrorist defense lawyers have been fighting to get him off the list since. But it appears that the imam’s track record was simply too much for the feds to ignore.


It sure took long enough. The name “mosque of the sword” is like a blinking neon sign.

Kariye presided over the radical Islamist teachings at the Masjed As-Saber mosque and, according to court documents and first hand accounts, he encouraged violent jihad, financially helped people who wanted to join the mujahideen and sent them to Afghanistan and elsewhere for weapons and tactical training.

Kariye was shown to have fraudulently applied for citizenship. His citizenship was stripped and he was ordered out of the country. He’s in “Somaliland” as we speak.

How it took this long to boot this thug from the U.S. is a wonder, but chalk it up to the law fare crowd in Portland whose legal parrying prolonged his stay. This terrorist bar also defended Gitmo detainees and Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the Portland Christmas tree bomber.

The evidence of violent jihad emanating from this mosque couldn’t be clearer. In his federal terrorism trial in Portland, Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the Christmas tree bomber, raved about the mosque in an email, “It’s cool. Saber or something. Yeah, Saber. It’s legit.” Mohamud had attended the mosque as a public school student. He also attended a Muslim Brotherhood-connected mosque during his stint at Oregon State University.

Mohamud wrote for both Inspire Magazine and Jihad Recollections

The young man who wrote for two jihadi magazines and twice tried to detonate his hand built bomb that would flatten two square blocks of downtown Portland – killing thousands of Christians at a Christmas tree lighting – knew the mosque he’d prayed at as a junior high student was a “legit” place to hear about violent jihad.

He wasn’t the only one. Kariye’s mosque produced the so-called “Portland 7,” a clan of extremist Muslim fundamentalists who raised money to travel overseas to train and fight American soldiers in Afghanistan.

Six of the “Portland 7” Terror Cell from Masjed As-Saber

The FBI says Kariye and members of the mosque provided money for their terror trip.

One of the Portland 7 bagmen was Maher Hawash, who it might interest you to know was a former acquaintance of mine (our kids went to school together) in his pre-jihadi days. I and most others knew him as “Mike,” a name he abandoned as he became more radical. He too was a Masjed as-Saber member and is doing time in federal prison for his complicity in the case.

The FBI also contended that Kariye had direct connections with Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda connected groups. But the imam has been in the U.S. fomenting violence for the nearly 20 years since he came on the FBI/DHS radar.

But that’s not the end of the story. Oregon is a hotbed of all kinds terror activity.

A nine-year federal investigation busted an Eco and Animal terrorist group called “The Family” that spearheaded terror activities from Vail, Colorado, San Diego, Eugene and Portland.

A torched ski lodge in Vail, Colorado

The Bly, Oregon jihadi training camp was attended by “carloads of terrorists” from all over the world, but those details were downplayed by the local press.

Details of Bly, Oregon’s jihadi training camp came out in the trial of the notorious imam Abu Hamza al-Masri of Finsbury Park mosque in London

A Portland Water Bureau employee was busted for supporting jihad.

An Ashland “charity” Al Haramain funneled money to jihadist Chechen rebels.

Two businesses selling fur and outer wear were attacked by violent protesters who drove one out of business. They drove a restaurant out of business for serving foie gras.

Protesters picketed, threatened and targeted scientists conducting animal research.

White nationalist groups also call parts of the area ‘home.’

The list goes on.

This is the ‘progressive’ town after all that indulges lawlessness of all kinds – even from designated terrorist groups. It gives a pass to Antifa, its Anarchist brethren, animal rights terrorists who drive out businesses and threaten and carry out violence.

Victims of the violence often lose in court to the violent protesters because of far left jurors, prosecutors and judges. Even on the federal bench/bar.

As I’ve chronicled for many years now Portland has turned into a lawless petri dish. The only thing shocking about this case is that the imam got booted at all.

Joe Biden Stage-Managed the Entire “High-Tech Lynching” of Clarence Thomas; now the Left Wants Him to Apologize to His Star Actress, Anita Hill.

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


I’ve been confused about calls on the Left for Joe Biden to apologize to Anita Hill. I remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings and thought that if Biden should apologize to anyone it was to the Supreme Court Justice. However, after reading this piece in The Federalist by Mollie Hemingway I’m reassessing. I’m not so sure he doesn’t owe her one. 

Here’s what I mean: Last week on “The View,” the cast of magpies known as the hosts had the former Vice President on the ropes ‘hummana-hummana-ing’ over why he should apologize to Hill and for groping women and girls. This would be his proving ground for being taken seriously as a 2020 presidential candidate. Biden said he had spoken with Hill and offered an apology, his penance, in hopes it would mollify the hosts. He assured the women that, “I did everything in my power to defeat Clarence Thomas.” Remember now that Anita Hill’s dubious testimony of pubic hairs on Coke cans, x-rated videos and the like was such an obvious put-up job, so clearly and obviously orchestrated for maximum impact by Democrats that even a young, wet-behind-the-ears, liberal dummy like me could see it. 

Hemingway cites Arlen Specter’s memoir for his recollections of Hill’s testimony at the hearing. Biden told Specter that it was obvious Hill was lying. Specter, at the time a Republican who later switched teams, was a former prosecutor and member of the Judiciary Committee: “[I]n 1998, Biden admitted to Specter that ‘It was clear to me from the way she was answering the questions, [Hill] was lying’ about a key part of her testimony. The exchange was published in Specter’s 2000 memoir, ‘Passion for Truth: From Finding JFK’s Single Bullet to Questioning Anita Hill to Impeaching Clinton.’”  READ THE REST AT POLITICAL VANGUARD HERE:

Oregon Democrats Pulled Another Fast-One After Midnight on Sweeping Anti- Gun Rights Bill

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


Eugene area Democrat Senator Floyd Prozanski continued his contemptible way in dealing with the public on his “incoherent,” “incomprehensible,” “vindictive” bill stealing Oregonians’ Second Amendment rights by pulling another legislative-sleight-of-hand in the wee hours of this morning.

Of course he did.

As I previously pointed out,the phalanx of new guns regulations contained in Senate Bill 978 started out as a brief four paragraph ‘bill.’ Three amendments to it have ballooned the skimpy bill into a multi-thousand word sweeping change of the Oregon gun laws.

Kevin Starrett, Oregon Firearms Federation

Oregon Firearms Federation chief Kevin Starrett reports that Prozanski pulled another fast-one last night, hours before a scheduled vote on the bill. Prozanski waited until after midnight and added a fourth 44 page amendment to the bill.

Starrett sent out this email blast called, “While You Were Sleeping”:

“In the still of the night, (12 .16 am this morning to be exact) Floyd Prozanski introduced yet another 44 page amendment to SB 978. This would be the “dash 4″ amendment.

It makes changes to several provisions of previous amendments including definitions of “untraceable” and “undetectable” firearms and the new prohibitions on being near a public building or airport with a firearm. Although the bill was scheduled to be voted on in the Senate Judiciary Committee today, it was moved to tomorrow’s schedule.  They may very well sneak in more proposed amendments in the middle of the night before then.SB 1040 was also moved to tomorrow’s schedule. So far one amendment has been introduced to that bill. More could be coming. The Senate Judiciary Committee will meet tomorrow to move these bills at 8.15 am .HB 2013 was scheduled to be heard today in the House Judiciary Committee. That bill was also postponed until tomorrow awaiting amendments which have not been posted as of the time of this alert.Stay tuned. The fight goes on.” [emphasis added]

Twitter/Devon Beer

In addition to gutting and stuffing the bill, adding an emergency clause (read more about that here), in addition to subverting gun ownership in Oregon, Prozanski and his allies in the gun-hating groups are manipulating the calendar to make sure you’re not in Salem when this thing comes to a vote.

It’s shameful and unethical.

Law Abiding Gun Owners in Crosshairs: Oregon Firearms Federation’s Starrett to NRA’s Dana Loesch on Fighting the New Gun Grab: “It’s Going to Require That Everyone Step Up.”

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


Oregon Democrats will hold a work session on “a bill” that, if passed, would result in worse gun laws than in New Jersey and California. SB 978 is about four paragraphs long, but has ‘amendments’ that expand the bill to well over 100 pages. It’s nothing short of a “pass the bill to find out what’s in it” nightmare.

See what real Oregon gun owners said about the proposed gun law changes at a hearing on the “bill” here.

Aside from shoe-horning these confiscatory gun bills into the books through their legislative super-majorities, Eugene Democrat and Senate Judiciary Committee Chair, Floyd Prozanski, moved this ‘bill’ along in a ‘gut and stuff’ fashion. There’s a reason there’s a cliche about “sausage making” in politics.

But we found out in a series of surprise “amendments” to the proposed “bill” revealed literally minutes before the hearing, that the four paragraph skeleton bill was a place-holder for every Michael Bloomberg, Everytown USA-Moms-Demand-Action wet dream ever conceived.

Here’s where the bill started:

That’s the whole bill. Four paragraphs.

Here’s where ‘the bill’ is now.

Forty four pages in “Amendment 1.”

Forty five pages in “Amendment 2.”

Forty four pages in “Amendment 3.”

Worse, the Democrats use the oldest trick in the book and declared the bill an ’emergency’ thereby requiring it be implemented within 90 days and prohibited it being referred to the voters as allowed by Oregon law.

In short, as Kevin Starrett of the Oregon Firearms Federation has maintained :

“This vindictive, incoherent bill … makes it virtually impossible to leave the home with a firearm.”

As I said in my previous post on this:

The bill … is a power grab that is so massive, so breathtaking, that it would arguably prevent people from using their legal concealed carry permits because so many new places could be defined as no-go-zones for legal gun carriers. It would turn “hundreds of thousands” of legal gun owners into felons overnight. It would require that guns be locked up, an issue that animated many of those testifying against the bill.

It would also impose an age limit on gun use, making even military veterans unable to use a civilian firearm. Ridiculous.

Starrett told Dana Loesch of NRA TV that this is an all-hands-on-deck situation. See the video here.

The NRA is holding two work shops along the Oregon coast to educate and motivate gun owners to fight back.

RSVP for Coos Bay workshop at Public Library on MONDAY NIGHT at 6:30pm is HERE.

RSVP for Newport workshop on TUESDAY NIGHT at 6:30pm at Holiday Inn is HERE.

Here’s what NRA-ILA said about the bigger issues in these “amendments”:

  • Imposing one-size-fits-all, government mandated firearm storage methods that require firearms be unavailable for self-defense and does not consider personal circumstances.
  • Discriminating against young adults under the age of 21 by denying them their Second Amendment rights
  • Expanding so called “gun-free zones” where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless against criminals who simply ignore such arbitrary boundaries.
  • Imposing additional government red tape in order to obtain a Concealed Handgun License.

In addition, the “bill” makes a gun owner responsible for ANY SUBSEQUENT CRIME that occurs with that weapon after a criminal steals it.

Folks, if your car is stolen prosecutors don’t hold you accountable if the car thief hits or kills someone with the vehicle.

Fight back.

I’ll be spending some hours going through the “bill” (amendments) to determine more surprises contained therein. I suggest you do the same. Send me your feedback at Victoria@VictoriaTaft.com.

People Tee Off on “Incomprehensible,” “Vindictive,” “Incoherent” Gun Grabbing Bill in Oregon Legislature

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


It’s no secret that since Oregon Democrats took over they’ve sought to be the most ‘progressive’ of all the far Left states. No tax is high enough, no baby is dead enough, no salmon worshiped enough, no forest burned enough, no foster child imprisoned enough, no baker sued enough. And no gun right endangered enough.

On Tuesday morning in Salem, the State Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony from a few dozen Oregonians on Senate Bill 978.

The bill and its 40-page amendment is a power grab that is so massive, so breathtaking, that it would arguably prevent people from using their legal concealed carry permits because so many new places could be defined as no-go-zones for legal gun carriers. It would turn “hundreds of thousands” of legal gun owners into felons overnight. It would require that guns be locked up, an issue that animated many of those testifying against the bill.

As Oregon Firearms Federation leader, Kevin Starrett, testified, “This vindictive, incoherent bill … makes it virtually impossible to leave the home with a firearm.”

Kevin Starrett, Oregon Firearms Federation

Which, of course, is the point of the bill, naturally.

Attorney and retired State Trooper, Douglas Brown predicted that “this will end up in the US Supreme Court” and testified that there “is a multitude of problems with [the bill],” including that it is “incomprehensible” making it “impossible to know if you’re breaking the law.” He warned that the incomprehensibility would leave citizens vulnerable to political prosecutions.

Phil Watson of the Firearms Policy Coalition warned that the bill is “aggressive against carrying for self defense.”

The head of the Yamhill County Sportsman’s Association, Jim Mitschel, labeled the bill “too broad.” He claimed that the language of the bill was so flabby that it appeared he couldn’t have a firearm in his home because it is, in the words of the bill, “adjacent” to a school where there’s a no-gun policy.

“I am adamantly against this bill,” the retired police officer and gun rangemaster added.

Make no mistake, there were many compelling speeches by people who want to end gun violence. Everyone in that hearing room was opposed to “gun violence,” of course.

Dr. Ben Hoffman from Doernbecher Children’s Hospital told stories of dealing with children shot with unsecured guns. He said, “It’s impossible to gun proof a kid, therefore we need to kid proof guns.”

Pastor Mark Knutsen testified about how he leads a gun-free church. I’m not sure I’d be shouting that one from the rafters, Mark.

Elizabeth McKenna, a retired attorney and member of the anti gun group “Ceasefire Oregon” testified that the fuzzy bill was “wise” and “will make us much safer in Oregon.”

Cole Rainey, sporting a Joey Nations for Congress t-shirt, ticked off a list of all the tyrannical leaders through history who have disarmed citizens and murdered their citizens. He said ‘you are putting the safety of Oregonians last and your political special interests first.’

Frank Martin, an Air Force Veteran, former law enforcement officer and gun enthusiast, told the committee that he was tired of being “… told that I’m the problem with gun violence.”

One man asked the Committee if the state would be going after Home Depot and Lowe’s for carrying nail guns.

Kim Rowlands noted that he believed the law even outlawed pepper spray, “You’ll make us less safe. You’ve made self defense free zones.”

Tammy McKenzie told Committee Members that “Guns rights are women’s rights. Guns rights are men’s rights. Guns rights are American rights.”

And in her commanding, yet matter-of-fact way, made possibly the most bracing comment of the morning, “The Second Amendment makes me equal to anyone. Anyone.”

Oregonian Dennis Powers said that “Oregon has more criminals than we need right now. This bill is designed to make gun owners criminals.”

Greg Terhune, visibly angry over the breadth of the bill, told the gathering “We will not comply. We are citizens, not subjects.”

The next hearing on the bill is April 8.

What’s the Deal With Moms Demand Action’s Pearl Clutching?

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


COMMENTARY

On Tuesday morning I watched testimony before the Oregon State Senate Judiciary Committee (see post nearby) on a bill (SB 978-Amendment 1) that gun rights advocates labeled “vindictive,” “incoherent” and who warned that, if passed, would make Oregon more dangerous, not less.

Seriously, this is one hot mess of a bill and amendment. Lawd. See my nearby post.

A handful of women in the audience wore red Moms Demand Action t-shirts.

Moms Demand Action is the Michael Bloomberg-backed anti-gun rights group filled with women doing their best to smother gun rights for all Americans the way their sisters in the abortion movement smother babies in the womb. Or, if you’re in Virginia and New York, in the crib.

Similarly, they claim to be doing it ‘for the children,’ a noble cause, but, oddly, don’t support trained and armed teachers in the classroom in Parkland, Florida. In short, they don’t want good guys to have guns, either.

The group was started by Shannon Watts. I don’t even know her but I guess she knows me.

Oh, heeeeey Shannon.

The group has the ear of Oregon state lawmakers. It opposes the Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. It’s a radical group with values antithetical to the basic American precepts of individual freedom and freedom from governmental tyranny.

But something struck me as I watched the group’s testimony.

What was it?

Pearls? Who wears pearls to adorn a t-shirt?

Moms Demand Action, that’s who.

It’s a ‘thing’:

No, it’s really a thing.


Let’s see, what’s on my list to go testify in Salem today? Ah, yes, bring:

  • Red Shirt
  • Sensible shoes
  • Pearls

But you can leave the Constitution at home. You won’t be needing that.

Pearl clutching is so much a part of the group’s identity that a New Hampshire women’s pro-gun group handed out their own long strings of pearls to lawmakers to remind them that guns are equalizers and allow women to defend themselves.

And the men in the legislature wore them.

Moms Demand Action’s pearls are meant to wrong-foot their political opponents.

Male lawmaker to himself, ‘How can I publicly disagree with this woman when she looks like my mom when I was a kid? Those … pearls. Peaaaarls?! My grandma had pearls like that. Barbara Bush wore pearls. Hell, Beaver’s mom wore pearls like that.’

Cue June Cleaver:

So, what to do when you want radical change but want to keep it Lo Pro? Put “mom” in the title of your group and encourage your members to wear pearls.

The trick is to look as benign, doe-eyed and disarming as June Cleaver, while disarming America.

The ‘Ferguson Effect’ & Unequal Justice on Full Display in Portland Cop Survey.

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


A new survey of police and citizens shows that the so-called ‘Ferguson Effect’ is large and in charge at the Portland cop shop.

Oddly, that hasn’t made the news.

The ‘Ferguson Effect,’ in which cops now look the other way on possible crimes for fear of being tagged as ‘racist’ or insensitive or targeted (Following the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. Officer Darren Wilson was hounded out of his job, his home and is still living in hiding after Brown attacked the officer and tried to wrest away his gun), is a phenomenon first identified by Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute in her book “The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe.” As a result of police being afraid to do their jobs, crime goes up.

While the media, Democrats and social justice warriors (but I repeat myself) have tried mightily to “deconstruct” and debunk the Ferguson Effect, it has been widely seen throughout the country and certainly on the streets of Portland with nearly 100% of all cops saying they don’t stop and question suspicious behavior.

“With all of the criticism directed at the police today, are officers less willing to stop and question people who seem suspicious, or has nothing changed?”

Nearly all officers – 95% – indicated that:

“Yes, Officers are less willing to stop and question people who seem suspicious.”

As if that isn’t bad enough, sworn Officers are “skeptical” of the new leadership at the cop shop, which has been a veritable revolving door of over the past several years. And they’re “unclear” about what their top priorities should be. Half of them are burnt out from the job.

A whopping 79% of Portlanders don’t believe cops reduce crime and treat people fairly under the law.


Furthermore, “violent crimes are perceived to be down, [but] quality of life crimes persist.” I’ll dig into the “perceived to be down” unresolved stat later, but that’s pretty bad. However, here’s the nub of the problem in a study that neither mentions Antifa nor protesters:

“The PPB needs to understand that sometimes quality of life crimes, such as vandalism, the defacement of public property, illegal homeless camps on public property, auto theft and vandalism, are the most important in gaining the trust of the public and its cooperation. Most people, thankfully, do [not] interact with the police over major crimes, but they do with quality of life crimes.”

Seventy percent of Portlanders think cops are ‘fair’ only sometimes or not at all.

Translation of the above two points: Cops don’t stop crimes because it’s not politically correct and the rest of the citizenry knows it and thinks it’s unfair.

Do you think that “defacement of public property,” “vandalism” and other “quality of life” crimes such as, oh, I don’t know, not being able to drive on downtown streets or freeways, airports or get to work because of protesters blocking them to make their point about this week’s perceived wrong is a quality of life issue? Hell, yes.

Is cops not helping ICE agents get to their cars and thus being chased by violent Leftists – a bad PR move to the right thinking Portlanders – perhaps a ‘quality of life’ issue? Hell, yes.

Perhaps someone read about a guy who was just trying to do his job and Antifa chased him, hurt him and came back to attack him again so he drew his weapon to back them off and then was CHARGED with the crime while his Antifa attackers became “victims.” Think they heard about that case?

Screenshot/Laughing at Liberals

How about that lady who got so sick of Antifa blocking the streets she got out of her car and took the only weapon she had – laundry detergent – and started throwing haymakers at the thugs with her big orange jug of goo?

Do you think Portlanders haven’t noticed this two tiered system of justice?

Ted Wheeler, do you think they know that if they took a cowbell and commenced drowning out a speech in a public place that they’d be arrested but Antifa wouldn’t? Mike Strickland, pick up the white courtesy phone.

Do you think this lack of enforcement of the most basic laws of Portland has had an effect on the citizenry in thinking that somebody in Portland’s hierarchy has put their thumb on the scales of justice? Uh, hell yes.

The City’s capitulation to the ACLU and the social justice warrior crowd has resulted in the homeless ‘camping’ wherever they want, subjecting Portlanders to the disgusting and unhealthy filth of human waste, disease and despondency.

As a person who works, feeds and helps the homeless, I can tell you why people are out there. I’ll tell you about that in another post. The report says the politicians have “no political will” to do what is necessary about the homeless. Duh.

This two tier system of justice has brought confusion to cops, dissatisfaction of the public and a feeling of being unsafe in people’s own home town.

In the words of the report:

“When the police pick and choose what/when to enforce, application of the law becomes inequitable.”

No kidding.

The Portland Police Bureau reportedly has had 50 Officers turn in their badges because they’re sick of the confusion, bad leadership and rampant lawlessness allowed to take place while they’re allowed to do little.

If that’s not bad enough, City Commissioners have consulted with one of the progenitors of the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” lies of Ferguson to help write the next Portland Police Bureau contract. This just in: even Eric Holder doesn’t buy the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” lies from Ferguson. His Justice Department said so.

The police survey makes suggestions on what to do to fix the problems, suggesting that the City should:

“Align governmental and PPB leadership and support for effectiveness.”

Puhleeze. Politicizing the cop shop – by allowing the hyper-political Mayor and ‘community’ social justice protesters to dictate which people get a pass and which must be punished – is why we have this problem in the first place.

Wake up.

Trump Calls Portland State Cow Bell Incident – Which Drowned Out Mike Strickland – “Disgraceful” in Signing Exec Order on Campus Free Speech

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


President Trump called the incident involving the Antifa/Anarchist cow bell ringer drowning out a speaker at Portland State University earlier this month “disgraceful” and “horrible” on Thursday.

The Cow Bell Boy drowned out Portland journalist Mike Strickland for more than an hour before he left. Police stood by watching as Strickland was prevented from giving his presentation on his notorious Portland case. Eventually, order was restored because the Antifa cow bell ringing hype man and his two wingmen left. They were never cited by Campus Police.

Antifa Hype Man Disrupted Mike Strickland Speech for More Than an Hour on March 6 at Portland State University as Police Stood By and Let It Happen

Trump said,

“Even as universities have received billions and billions of dollars from taxpayers many have been increasingly hostile to free speech and to the First Amendment, you see it all the time.

You turn on the news and you see things that are horrible. You see people being punched hard in the face. …And you’ve seen the cow bell scene. You saw that horrible scene. That was a disgraceful thing at a school, at a university.”

CBS News reported that Trump’s Executive Order would make schools pay for crowding out conservative voices on campus:

“The president’s executive order Thursday is meant to pressure schools to permit free speech and expression on college campuses. Mr. Trump has threatened to pull federal funding if they don’t. The First Amendment already prohibits the government from quashing free speech.”

“The president’s executive order Thursday is meant to pressure schools to permit free speech and expression on college campuses. Mr. Trump has threatened to pull federal funding if they don’t. The First Amendment already prohibits the government from quashing free speech.”

While CBS News is correct that “the First Amendment already prohibits the government from quashing free speech,” the reality on campus is quite different as you can see from the video taken of the Cow Bell Boy in action:

Criminal Charges Are Dropped Against Driver Surrounded by Antifa ‘Protesters’ on Portland Street

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


The Oregonian reports this afternoon that criminal charges have been dropped against a man who continued to drive as Antifa protesters attempted to block his way.

Protesters moved out of the way as Mark Dickerson slowly drove through …

when one of the protesters came back and, like an intentional foul while dribbling in traffic, allowed himself to be ‘hit’ by Dickerson’s car.

Today, police released the dash cam video of the incident:


Prosecutors said the incident was Dickerson’s fault.

Dickerson’s incident took place after Antifa and Black Lives Matter ‘protesters’ blocked traffic in the aftermath of a police involved shooting and blocked another section of downtown Portland.

This above incident was done in full view of a flaccidly responding police officer, who watched from the safety of his motorcycle.

Antifa had also chased a man down the street and surrounded his car in a clash that made national news:



It’s precisely these attacks that give rise to charges that Antifa runs the streets of Portland.

And this is what the Antifa and Black Lives Matter ‘protesters’ said to drivers as they passed by:

“Yah, you little white little fucker! You’re a little whitey aren’t cha? … Just please turn right … You are a little whitey supremacist! … we don’t need your KKK … you fucking hit me right now, I’ll beat the shit out of you.

One upset driver told the ‘protesters,’ “Look, you don’t pay my bills, so shut the fuck up!” She drove where they wanted her to, however.

Prosecutors reportedly claimed that their star witness, identified as Arthuray Dudley, supposedly the brother of the man killed by police, would have sewn up their case against Dickerson, but he didn’t show up in court on Monday. Dickerson’s attorney said he would prove Antifa was responsible.

Oregon County Considers Declaring Itself Sanctuary for Gun Owners

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


Proving that lawless “sanctuary policies” work both ways, Yamhill County, Oregon will consider making itself a sanctuary for gun owners.

The county, home to the state’s most famous wine region and independent-minded farmers, will consider the Second Amendment Sanctuary measure on Thursday of this week.

Leftist city and state officials have fallen over themselves to declare themselves sanctuary to illegal aliens:

The Trump Administration is fighting the issue of cities, counties and states removing themselves from Federal law and authority is currently in the California based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

To make a point and to exempt themselves from onerous state and local laws, people in counties around the country have now proposed and passed “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

Measures have passed even in Illinois:


Obviously, the right to keep and bear arms is a U.S. Constitutional right, but that hasn’t stopped the Oregon Democrat Autocrazy from passing several constraints on gun owners and floating several more anti-Second Amendment ideas.

The Oregon Firearms Federation is encouraging Yamhill County residents to attend the meeting:

“The best chance to stop these attacks on your liberty and property may well be at the county level.The meeting will be at the Yamhill County Courthouse, 535 NE 5th in McMinnville in room 32. (This is a courthouse so firearms are not permitted.)”

According to the Coos County Watchdog, several counties in Oregon are considering such measures:

The Second Amendment Sanctuary idea has caught on in Colorado:

In New Mexico:

A White House petition has been started:

Fremont County, Colorado Commissioner Dwayne McFall told the Canon City Daily Record,

“I think we’re trying to make a statement to the lawmakers in Denver who are acting on their own agenda and not listening to the rest of the state. We’re not sworn to uphold an unconstitutional law.”

Prower County Commissioner Wendy Buxton-Andrade put it bluntly:

“We are elected officials when we raise our hand to take office. We are sworn to protect the United States Constitution. In passing this resolution, we are protecting that right and protecting our constituents from those trying to take away that constitutional right, the Second Amendment.”

A Texas lawmaker is talking about making the entire state a Second Amendment Sanctuary:

But Leftist blow-back has started:

All of this is silly, of course. The Bill of Rights is that which the government shall not do to an individual. The sanctuary policies of the Left call for defying Federal law. This Second Amendment Sanctuary calls for the entity to follow what is already enshrined in the U.S. Constitution: an individual’s God-given right, which shall not be infringed.

However, Leftists who didn’t learn civics may need to get a lesson in it from the Second Amendment sanctuary folks who figure what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. The fun will be in watching them squirm and wriggle.
