Quotes of the Day

Trump’s remarkable victory is their victory. It is a victory for democracy, for the common men and women of America.

The factory workers, the veterans, the cops, the kitchen help, people who plow the fields, make the trains run, pick up the trash and keep the country together and keep it moving — they are all now winners. As one, these cogs of our daily life rose up in a peaceful revolution, their only weapons the ballot box and their faith in the future. Michael Goodwin

 

Barack Obama has been a disaster for the Democratic Party. When he took office in 2009, Democrats had large majorities in the House and Senate, 29 governorships, and 27 state legislatures. Now it has neither chamber, and only 18 governorships and 12 state legislatures. There was a Republican landslide for the Kentucky state senate, where the GOP took a majority for the first time in 91 years. Steven Hayward

SWEET VICTORY! Mainstream Media Meltdown

Thanks to President-Elect Donald J. TRUMP – IT IS A NEW DAY IN  AMERICA!  We now have REAL hope and we WILL have positive change.  In a total repudiation of OBAMA and his failed policies, we forgotten men and women, we the (deplorable) people of the USA have taken our country back!

A Message from Bill Courier, ORP

Good evening,

Wow, we are getting national attention with our GOTV effort and seem to have really struck a nerve with the Democrat Party.  I wanted to update each of you on the ongoing media hype regarding our GOTV calls and inactive voter surge.  On Friday and throughout the weekend a series of automated calls were made to thousands of Republicans who were already registered but have been placed on the inactive list by the Secretary of State.

The voice message was simple and direct: ““Voter registration records have been reviewed in your county and there is a possibility that you or someone in your household may have had their voter registration marked inactive. If you have not received your ballot yet, this may be the reason. The Oregon Republican Party wants you to be able to vote in next Tuesday’s election. In the 2010 election, Republican Chris Dudley lost his race for governor by just over 1 percent. Last May, another Republican race ended in a tie vote, and was literally decided by a dice roll. Don’t let our state’s future be determined by a roll of the dice. You may be the deciding vote. Contact your county elections office immediately. By going directly to the elections office, you can reactivate your registration, pick up your ballot, and vote on the spot.”  (Some early calls used a slightly different script)

Incredibly, Secretary of State Jean Atkins has tried to spin this as voter suppression, with the liberal media echoing her false narrative.  But Oregon voters know better!  They are thanking the ORP for alerting them of their status and providing information on how to get their ballots to vote!

Our plan is working and people are engaging.  County elections clerks are reporting a burst in phone calls and increase in ballot pickups as a result of being notified that they were on the inactive voters list.  These calls never told callers their vote wouldn’t count or that they were not registered.  This was a complete fabrication on the part of the Secretary of State and the Democrat Party. 

We need your help.  If any of you recorded the KOIN 6 news broadcast where the Secretary of State asked people to “just ignore the calls” please let me know.  That IS voter suppression and it needs to be addressed.  Kevin Hoar and I were watching when the video was pulled down and the narrative was changed.   It really is important to get a copy of the original video if anyone has it recorded.

Today is a very exciting day for Oregon Republicans!  We have great candidates for our statewide offices, our federal offices, House seats, Senate seats, county commissioners, mayors, city councilor, and on down the ballot.   Many have worked very hard on the Defeat97 campaign.  The ORP has sent out over 200,000 mail pieces for candidates, thus saving them thousands of dollars.

Each and every one of you has had a part in our successes and we can’t thank you enough.  The time has come to start turning this state around and we couldn’t do it without your support.

Statewide Races

ELECTIONS

 

STATEWIDE RACES

 

Bud Pierce looking for upset in governor’s race against Kate Brown

The Oregonian

If Pierce wins Nov. 8, he’d make history as the first Republican elected governor since Vic Atiyeh in 1982. He’d also be the first political outsider to claim the state’s job since Charles A. Sprague, a noted editorialist and newspaper publisher, won election in 1939. Pierce still insists that’s possible, touting himself as an old-school Oregon moderate who leans right on financial policy but isn’t obsessed with social issues.

 

Measure 96 needed to help get services to veterans, backers say

The Oregonian

“The reality is, many of our veterans have already earned their benefits,” said Rep. Julie Parrish, R-West Linn, a co-sponsor with Rep. Paul Evans, D-Salem. “We’re talking about taking care of the 350,000 Oregon vets who span five generations of war conflicts and peace time services. It’s hard to imagine any one measure that’s as important as this one.”

 

Measure 97 FAQ: How the tax would work, who would pay, where the money goes

The Oregonian

It’s a complex, unusual initiative. Here are some answers to the questions we frequently hear about the tax.

 

Donald Trump supporters rally at Capitol

Statesman Journal

Thirty residents from throughout the Willamette Valley wore “Make America Great Again” red hats and took U.S. flags in hand Saturday for the Salem “March for America” national rally to support a Donald Trump presidency and fight corruption.

 

LEGISLATIVE RACES

 

Moro’s attack ads against DeBoer draw fire

Mail Tribune

Attack ads against Senate Republican candidate Alan DeBoer by his Democratic opponent, Tonia Moro, have drawn stinging criticism from her supporters who were hoping Moro would continue the legacy of the late Sen. Alan Bates.

 

Gov. Kate Brown, Paul Evans rallies for gun legislation with Moms Demand Action

Statesman Journal

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, an organization created in 2012 to push gun reform to legislators, state and federal institutions, companies, and educational institutions, hosted the rally as a precursor to a canvassing effort for Evans, a representative the organization refers to as a “gun sense champion.”

 

GOVERNMENT & POLICY

 

Portland Could Pass Law Requiring Landlords to Pay Moving Costs After a “No Cause” Eviction

Willamette Week

Portland Mayor-elect Ted Wheeler’s campaign promise to restrict no-cause  evictions of tenants faces roadblocks, including legal opinions issued this month by attorneys for the Oregon Legislature. But the city could legally pass a law to bill landlords for tenants’ moving costs stemming from evictions without cause on month-to-month leases.

 

Insurance guide 2017: Consumers face fewer choices, higher prices

The Oregonian

About 230,000 Oregonians are likely to buy their own insurance for next year, if this year’s enrollment holds, but they will have fewer choices and higher premiums compared with 2016. Only four carriers are offering statewide coverage in 2017, versus seven this year, and premiums are jumping 10 to 30 percent.

 

It’s Hard To Know How Good Oregon’s Child Care Centers Are

Oregon Public Broadcasting

There’s a big gap between how good Americans think their child care is and what experts think. Only 13 percent of Oregon’s child care programs even participate in a rating system. A new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Harvard found 88 percent of parents said their child care was “very good” or “excellent.” But experts say less than 10 percent of child care is “very high” quality —  and that the vast majority is just “fair.”

 

Old Salem State Hospital building to become affordable housing

Portland Tribune

One of the historical buildings at Oregon State Hospital’s mostly vacant north campus could soon become affordable housing. The Housing Authority of Salem has reached a conditional sales agreement with the state to buy Yaquina Hall and convert it into up to 50 apartments.

 

Groups reach agreement in spotted frog lawsuit

Bend Bulletin

The proposed settlement, “reluctantly” agreed to by the at least one of the districts, stems from a pair of lawsuits filed by two environmental groups last December and January seeking to protect the Oregon spotted frog, which lives in the area.

 

What Happens To Your Ballot Before It’s Counted?

Oregon Public Broadcasting

Oregonians are returning their ballots at a faster pace so far than either of the past two presidential elections. But what happens to all those ballots before they get counted?

 

OPINION

 

Editorial: Parrish proven, engaged, committed candidate

West Linn Tidings

Parrish already has grown into this position. She earned our endorsement for the first time in 2014, after we opted for different candidates in the previous two elections. Now, she has again proven she will represent the citizens of West Linn and the overall district well, and deserves to go back to Salem for another term.

 

Editorial: Rental disputes don’t require government agency

Bend Bulletin

But the answer isn’t a government-financed agency. Just as in other areas of life — disputes about any service or product — renters need to read the contract, know and defend their rights, and seek help from legal aid or in small claims court if they can’t get satisfaction. If too many tenants aren’t up to the task, nonprofits may find a role, but governments should stay out.

 

The unsatisfying outcome to the Malheur refuge occupation: Editorial

The Oregonian Editorial Board

The lesson throughout, however, is plain: Civil disobedience carries with it the willingness to scale protest actions against applicable laws, face criminal prosecution for violating them and to accept consequences. The Bundy crew got very lucky in Oregon. May they not in Nevada. And may those whom they inspire nationwide consult the Constitution that was so misapplied in Harney County.

 

Guest: Illegal immigrants hurt Oregon workers

Richard F. LaMountain, OFIR

Clearly, a plethora of cheap illegal labor harms Oregon’s lowest-skilled U.S. citizens. Rather than champion illegal immigrants, Kotek and Dembrow should introduce bills in the 2017 legislative session mandating that state employers use the federal E-Verify system to vet new hires for proof of legal U.S. presence. This would help shrink Oregon’s illegal-immigrant population and, in doing so, re-employ jobless Americans — the people to whom elected state officials are responsible.

Trump: “Contract with the American Voter”

  1. Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress
  2. Institute a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)
  3. Require for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.
  4. Institute a five year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service
  5. Create a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.
  6. Institute a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
  7. Announce intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.
  8. Announce withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
  9. Direct Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.
  10. Direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately.
  11. Lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
  12. Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.
  13. Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.
  14. Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.
  15. Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
  16. Cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.
  17. Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.
  18. Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
  19. Work with Congress on a Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act.An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.
  20. Work with Congress on a End The Offshoring ActEstablishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.
  21. Work with Congress on a American Energy & Infrastructure ActLeverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.
  22. Work with Congress on a School Choice And Education Opportunity ActRedirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.
  23. Work with Congress on a Repeal and Replace Obamacare ActFully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
  24. Work with Congress on a Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act.Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.
  25. Work with Congress on an End Illegal Immigration ActFully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.
  26. Work with Congress on a Restoring Community Safety Act.Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.

Vacations and Extravagance VS Harry Truman

CaptureB1CaptureB2


Compare this “I am royalty” approach of modern politicians to Harry Truman, a man of character.


Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri. His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.”

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.”

As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.
