Trump is up!

We have free TRUMP yard signs!  Give me a call or drop by the office during regular office hours.  If there is a car out front, I am probably in the office.


Today, Mr. Trump is ahead in Ohio and North Carolina.  He is tied in Florida.  He is within 5 points in Pennsylvania and Colorado ( which usually go heavily Democrat).  Yesterday he was within 2 points in most of the national polling.  Oregon looks like a lost cause…but we will never surrender without a fight!  J Things are looking up.

Motor Voter Public Input Meeting

From  Sandy Raddue, ORP Election Integrity chair:

I’ve been in this position about 3 years now, and we’ve seen some really questionable changes in our election laws during that time in Salem!

The new Automatic Voter Registration law, AKA Motor Voter, is going to take effect in Oregon in Jan. 2016. The Secretary of State is seeking review and comment on the DRAFT OMV Administrative Rule manual. We have an opportunity over the next 3 weeks to impact this implementation.

I’m hoping you’ll be able to either attend one of the meetings across the state, or submit written testimony to the State Elections Dept.

… There are 3 areas of greatest concern. Those are:

  1. The Elections office has decided to include electronic updating of voter registration information for those who already have a drivers license or ID card – this was NOT in the original scope of the bill.
  1. 17 year old registered “pre-voters” will have contact information made public. I recently found out that this is CURRENTLY the policy (!!!) – this seems like a great time to fix this part of the voter registration law, since Oregoninas were assured assured that minor’s information WOULD BE PROTECTED from being made public. They need to hear from us about this.
  1. Many Oregonians expressed concern over data security, especially based on the history of Oregon and their poor record of handling secure data.

This is NOT adequately addressed in this manual, and in fact, the 2014 task force put together to review DMV Customer Service made specific, URGENT recommendations for updating the DMV computer system, which was originally implemented 40 years ago!

Meeting times can be found at

Rally in PDX

Today, starting at noon, at the Beaverton Planned Parenthood (and in 65 cities across the US), pro-lifers will be gathering to protest Planned Parenthood and demand the defunding of the nation’s largest abortion provider. Students for Life of America is the national organizer of the event and we are proud to co-sponsor the Portland rally. View the Facebook event page here for more details.

If you cannot attend the rally, please send Governor Kate Brown an email asking her to investigate Planned Parenthood in Oregon. The abortion industry has zero regulations in Oregon (one does not even have to be a licensed medical doctor to perform abortions). If the abortion industry truly cares for women’s safety, they will not oppose regulations that are accepted by any healthcare provider, like cleanliness standards, admitting privileges and outside oversight.

Send Gov. Brown your letter today.

See you in Beaverton in 2 hours!

P.S. We have a new feature on our YouTube channel, a weekly pro-life roundup. We take the top story of the week as well as tell you how to answer one hard abortion rights argument. Check our first two out! #PPSellsBabyParts HERE and the rape exception HERE.

OCL: Gun Background Checks

 NO on SB941 requires background check at dealer for all private firearm sales
Posted HERESB941 will require a background check in person at gun dealer for all private firearm sales and transfers except at gun shows where the seller may still do the background check directly with OSP by phone.  Allows limited exceptions for family members and short term transfers for firearm instruction, hunting, target shooting and to prohibit imminent threat of serious injury or death.

Personal Choice

SB941 interferes with and makes much more difficult, the sale of goods between private citizens in a way no other legally possessed goods are regulated.  The claimed intent is ‘for the public good’ i.e., safety, but the stats on states which have done this do not show that this increases public safety, as is supported by the experience and statements of most law enforcement officers and organizations including the 36 members of the Oregon State Sheriffs Association who opposed SB 1551 in 2014 and the 4500 members of Washington State’s WaCOPS who opposed Measure I-594 there also in 2014.

Oregon is one of only a few states which requires background checks by private parties at gun shows, as a result of a law passed in 2000.  There has been no evidence put forward that this has decreased crime rates in Oregon.  This evidence should be required before expanding this requirement to all private sales.

Limited Government

SB941 creates a registry, which is forbidden by Federal law.  When a background check is run via the FBI’s NICS, the records of allowed sales are to be destroyed prior to the next business day.  However, in Oregon, background checks are run by Oregon State Police who are allowed to keep the sales records for ‘up to five years,’ but there has been no confirmation that the records are ever permanently deleted.  Therefore the state government will amass a listing of all firearms held by all citizens in Oregon.  This is forbidden in Federal law because experience has shown that any government that amasses such a list always uses it later to facilitate firearms confiscation.

Mission of the Oregon Citizens Lobby

Our mission is to help empower Oregonians by monitoring the legislative process in this state. We analyze bills and track them throughout their life cycle. We also track the actions of state representatives and senators as they work through and vote on these bills. The bills and legislators receive a grade based upon the 5 core principles of OCL. If a politician votes in a manner that violates one or more of these principles it is up to them to explain why they did so. We leave the politics to the politicians.The result of our work is posted atTrack Their Vote for the public to review.

Our hope is that this information will help citizens better understand proposed legislation which will in turn allow them to give relevant testimony on bills, lobby their legislators, and hold these politicians accountable for their actions.

Five Core Principles

Fiscal Responsibility
Government should have a limited budget that reflects the vitality of the state’s economy.
Local Control
Governmental power and functions should be as close to the citizens as possible for maximum oversight, control, and responsiveness.
Free Markets
Production and prices should be dictated by the laws of supply and demand without the interference of government in the way of subsidies, price controls, or over-burdensome regulation.
Limited Government
Our government should be charged with administering only those functions essential to society and that cannot be performed by private entities.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
Citizens must be free to pursue life, liberty, and property without undue government interference and to reap the rewards or bear the consequences of their decisions.

Action Alert: BOLI HB2386 VOTE UPDATE


Republican Rapid Response Action Alert

HB 2386-9 Engrossed

FLOOR VOTE on HOUSE side of the Legislature 3/24/2015What is in this bill?
Currently, wage & hour disputes between empolyees and employers are handled with the involvement of the Circuit Court having jurisdiction. The Bureau of Labor and Industries ( BOLI) brings the complaint to the court.

HB 2386 expands the authority of the BOLI Commissioner to issue cease and desist orders on a business, potentially closing it’s doors AND the business would have no right or method to appeal the decision until after BOLI completed it’s investigation and issued it’s final order.
That final order may not be available for an entire year.

Another expansion of authority would be for BOLI to set the dollar amount for a “bond” to be paid by the employer within 10 days. The bill has NO limit on the amount of the bond and if the business thinks it’s excessive, guess who is 100% responsible to prove it. Not BOLI.
“Pay up or we shut you down Mr. Employer”.

Current Situation

The House Committee on Business and Labor “DO PASS” recommendation was a straight party line vote .  No Republican House member voted for this bill.

HB2386-9 is heading for a FLOOR VOTE on HOUSE side of the Legislature on Tuesday 3/24/2015
ACTION you can take now.          Deadline: Monday 3/23/2015 Email and Call Your Representative, no matter what their party may be.
You could use any of these points to support your opposition to HB 2386:

  • The substitution of the commissioner for the court grants an executive branch agency judicial authority.  If BOLI is already fulfilling the roles of investigation and prosecutor in any dispute, how is it fair to the employee and the employer if BOLI also serves as the judge?


  • If BOLI establishes a requirement for a bond that is excessive, the employer assumes 100% of the responsibility to prove that the amount is excessive. That is contrary to the principle of innocent until proven guilty.


  • BOLI “may commence an action in the circuit court”, which is great for BOLI, but the employers seems to be left at the mercy of an agency.  BOLI may take up to a year to issue it’s final orders, and by then the business may no longer exist.
  • Our American system of justice is based on fairness to all parties and the role of our courts is

how we achieve that in our society.

Action Alert: BOLI looks to circumvent court process


ALERT! HB 2386 has a final work session this Wednesday the 18th at 8am.

We need letters and phone calls to members of the Business and Labor Committee ASAP!! That is unless you want BOLI to shut down businesses without due process.

This bill gives the Labor Commissioner the authority to circumvent the processes already in place that protect businesses from false accusations. HB 2386 will create a pure anti-business climate that will make any accused business automatically guilty until proven innocent.

Labor Commissioner Avakian is asking for ultimate authority for himself.

Assert your opinion and make your voice heard! Tell the House B&L Committee members NO ON HB2386!

Please share with every business you know and encourage them to call:
Chair Holvey 503 986-1408 ; Rep Barton 503 986-1440;
Rep Doherty 503 986-1435 ; Rep Evans 503 986-1420 ; Rep Fagan 503 986-1451
