5 Oregon Counties Vote to Secede From Liberal Oregon in Favor of Idaho

Published

Douglas County, OR

There’s been talk about Texas wanting to secede from the rest of the United States, but now the itch to leave liberal policies is inching up north. Five rural Oregon counties voted to secede from the state of Oregon and join the more politically conservative state of Idaho.

The Idaho Statesman reports:

Thousands of people in eastern Oregon voted Tuesday for their elected officials to consider ditching their state and becoming part of Idaho.

Voters in Sherman, Lake, Grant, Baker and Malheur counties all voted for ballot measures that would lead to them becoming Idahoans. People in Union and Jefferson counties had already voted in favor during the November election. . .

The vote is only the first step of the “Greater Idaho” project, which would allow some Oregon counties to join a state that advocates say more closely aligns with their political preferences.

The move has been in the works since “Move Oregon’s Border,” a Political Action Committee was formed in 2019. Breitbart reports, The Committee focuses on Oregon ballot initiatives, and “In March, Move Oregon’s Border founder Michael McCarter announced the establishment of a 501 c 4, Citizens for Greater Idaho, which will focus ‘on Idaho, Oregon, and beyond, to support the vision of Move Oregon’s Border.”

In a statement posted on the group’s website Wednesday, McCarter wrote, “This election proves that rural Oregon wants out of Oregon. If Oregon really believes in liberal values such as self-determination, the Legislature won’t hold our counties captive against our will. If we’re allowed to vote for which government officials we want, we should be allowed to vote for which government we want as well.”

Also on Wednesday, Oregon Live reported “the signature-gathering effort ‘to gain political refuge from blue states, was hampered last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it’s now picking up some momentum. Several prominent elected officials in Idaho, including Gov. Brad Little, have expressed support for the movement.”

      I’ve talked with a lot of people in Spokane County Washington. And unsurprisingly a overwhelming majority would love to leave the leftist, lack of leadership in Olympia. For a more down to earth conservative leadership in Idaho.

    Native Oregonians since 1960 and we are sick and tired of being affilliated with Portland and all of their nonsense. All of the liberal idiots need to be flushed down with our so called governor “the brown”.
    Jackson County would be honored to be part of Idaho if given the chance.
    Our freedoms rights and thoughts align with our great Constitution and definitely NOT portland or our so called leadership.

    Our great country is in peril due to voters wishing to push an agenda similar to the past and did not work, or they are ignorant of how radical the Democrat party has become. The last decent Democrat President was Bill Clinton, and he wanted to restrict illegal border entry. If the Democrats remain in power for another ten years, there is no doubt the red states will align more closely. It may lead to cession and the formulation of a RED state government, especially if parts of Oregon move to align with Idaho.

      “Decent” is such a strong word. I was thinking more “less radical.” There’s not much decent about either Clinton.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Published

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
