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.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

Published

BLM

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

Published

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
