Portland has become a feces-covered “cesspool”: Police union president blames Dem mayor’s homelessness response
- “Aggressive panhandlers block the sidewalks, storefronts, and landmarks like Pioneer Square, discouraging people from enjoying our City,” he said. “Garbage-filled RVs and vehicles are strewn throughout our neighborhoods. Used needles, drug paraphernalia, and trash are common sights lining the streets and sidewalks of the downtown core area, under our bridges, and freeway overpasses. That’s not what our families, business owners, and tourists deserve.” – PPA President Daryl Turner

The president of the Portland Police Association in Oregon issued a scathing rebuke of Mayor Ted Wheeler’s response to the city’s homelessness crisis, saying the city has become a feces-covered “cesspool” under the Democrat’s watch.
“Our City has become a cesspool,” PPA President Daryl Turner wrote in a statement posted on Facebook Monday. “Livability that once made Portland a unique and vibrant city is now replaced with human feces in businesses doorways, in our parks, and on our streets.
“Aggressive panhandlers block the sidewalks, storefronts, and landmarks like Pioneer Square, discouraging people from enjoying our City,” he said. “Garbage-filled RVs and vehicles are strewn throughout our neighborhoods. Used needles, drug paraphernalia, and trash are common sights lining the streets and sidewalks of the downtown core area, under our bridges, and freeway overpasses. That’s not what our families, business owners, and tourists deserve.”
His comments came after the mayor told The Oregonian that he wanted an investigation into the city’s arrest data after an analysis by the newspaper found 52 percent of arrests made last year involved a homeless person, while the homeless represent only roughly 3 percent of the city’s population.
“The real question here is, ‘Is there some sort of profiling or implicit bias?’” Mr. Wheeler said last week. “From my perspective, that’s the crux of the situation. The police should be focused on policing criminal activity, and that’s sort of the beginning, the middle and the end of it for me.
Trump Issues Full Pardons To Oregon Ranchers, Dwight and Steven Hammond, Forced Back Into Prison Under Anti-Terror Law
( Daily Caller ) President Donald Trump pardoned two Oregon ranchers forced back into prison in 2016 to serve out the rest of the mandatory minimum sentence required under an anti-terrorism law.
“The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” the White House said in a statement. “The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges.
Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted of committing arson on federal land in 2012 under an anti-terrorism law from 1996. The U.S. District Court judge who sentenced the ranchers believed the mandatory minimum sentence was too harsh, thus both men served short stints in prison.
The Hammonds served their time, but federal prosecutors appealed the case and got a federal court to overturn the 2012 judgement. The Hammonds were forced back into prison in 2016 to serve the rest of their sentences.
The Hammonds’ re-incarceration sparked an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon by brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy. An armed standoff between the Bundys and law enforcement lasted
Protect the Harvest (PTH), agriculture advocacy group, has been lobbying the Trump administration to commute the Hammonds’ sentences, arguing forcing them back into prison was unjust.
OREGON PAYS $750,000 TO BROTHERS WHO WERE SEXUALLY ABUSED WHEN PUT IN A SPANISH-SPEAKING ONLY FOSTER HOME
- Oregon pays three brothers $750,000 for placing them in Spanish-speaking home where they couldn’t tell their foster parents they were being sexually abused by other kids because no one spoke English
- The three boys’ biological mother, who was allowed visitation sessions with them, also noticed dramatic changes and she reported her concerns to the child welfare agency, Paul said. Among the mother’s concerns — that her children had started playing with dolls by placing them in sexual positions and making them kiss,
- The kids forced to wear filthy clothes smelling of urine and sleep in a windowless basement.
Oregon Live reports:
The state of Oregon has paid $750,000 to three English-speaking foster kids who were placed in the Gresham home of Spanish-speaking foster parents and forced to wear filthy clothes smelling of urine and sleep in a windowless basement.
Two of the three brothers also were sexually abused by another, older male foster child — and they were unable to tell that to their foster parents because their foster parents didn’t speak English, said Portland attorney David Paul, who represented the brothers.
Paul said the brothers’ isolation was made even worse because child-protection workers with the Oregon Department of Human Services failed to regularly check on the boys. Department rules require workers to have at least one face-to-face interaction with each foster child every 30 days. But Paul said one of the boys didn’t have any in-person visits with a DHS caseworker in the entire eight months he lived in the home in 2012 and 2013.
“There was a shocking lack of face-to-face visits with the children,” Paul said. “They can’t complain and they can’t speak candidly to their foster parents because they don’t speak the same language. And then they can’t reach out to DHS, because DHS isn’t visiting them.”
10 Very Strange Facts About The August 21 Solar Eclipse That Will Absolutely Blow Your Mind
- First big city the eclipse hits in Oregon is Salem – Salem was named after Jerusalem
- -The center line crosses through 12 primary states to receive total darkness. 12 disciples, 12 months in a year, the meaning of 12, which is considered a perfect number
- –The eclipse path is exactly 70 miles wide. 70 has a sacred meaning in the Bible
- Seven years later, there will be another eclipse on August 21, 2017 – (7 + 7 + 7 = 21). The exact point where the two eclipses cross is right next to Cedar Lake in Illinois… specifically right next to SALEM Road. (Salem again!)
- The eclipse is also exactly 40 days from Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement” and is a time of repentance
- The path of the eclipse will be situated in such a way that every single state of the US will experience it, even Hawaii and Alaska
I would like to share some amazing facts about the solar eclipse on August 21st with you. These were originally compiled by The Countdown Report, and when I first read them they definitely got my attention…
-First contact is in the state of Oregon, the 33rd state in the USA. The last contact is in South Carolina on the 33rd parallel. This eclipse happens on day 233 of the year. If the Revelation 12 sign is valid, then the eclipse is also 33 days before September 23, 2017. Jesus is thought to have been 33 when He died.
-Just for fun: It is 99 years (3 x 33) since the last eclipse to go coast-to-coast in the US, in 1918. From September 23, 2017 (Revelation 12 sign) to the end of the year, December 31, 2017 is 99 days (or 3 x 33). The number of days from the 1918 eclipse to the August 21 eclipse are 26,234 days. (2+6+2+3+4 = 17; 2017?). From August 12, 2017, the date of the Charlottesville Virginia “State of Emergency” declared to the August 21, 2017 Great Solar Eclipse is 9 days (3+3+3) and the dates are also mirrored – 12 and 21.
–First big city the eclipse hits in Oregon is Salem – Salem was named after Jerusalem. The eclipse also begins in Oregon exactly at sunset time in Jerusalem. So technically speaking, as the sun sets in America it will be setting in Jerusalem at the same time.
-The center line crosses through 12 primary states to receive total darkness. 12 disciples, 12 months in a year, the meaning of 12, which is considered a perfect number, is that it symbolizes God’s power and authority, as well as serving as a perfect governmental foundation.
–The eclipse path is exactly 70 miles wide. 70 has a sacred meaning in the Bible that has two perfect numbers, 7 that represents perfection and 10 that represents completeness and God’s law. 70 also symbolizes perfect spiritual order and a period of judgment. 70 is also specially connected with Jerusalem with so many references it would take a book to write.
-Another eclipse comes in 2024, 7 years after the August 21, 2017 and marks an X over the United States. The combined time of totality of these eclipses together will be 7 minutes. The day of the eclipse is August 21, 2017 – (7 + 7 + 7 = 21). The exact point where the two eclipses cross is right next to Cedar Lake in Illinois… specifically right next to SALEM Road. (Salem again!)
Another daily dose of left-wing violence! Cassandra Fairbanks of Big League Politics reported Sunday that a bar in Portland, Oregon named Paydirt is offering patrons a reward of “free whiskey for life” if they punch White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.
Imagine the outrage if someone on the right solicited violence against anyone in the Obama administration, they would immediately be branded domestic right-wing terrorists. Somehow, seemingly endless calls for violence against the Trump administration are not only acceptable among the left, it is celebrated.
Located at 2724 NE Pacific, Paydirt previously donated a portion of their inauguration day sales to Planned Parenthood.
“Inauguration Day is not going to be easy. We’ll be donating a portion of ALL sales this Friday to Planned Parenthood. Come drink with us,” the bar advertised on their Twitter account.
Let’s drink to forget and raise some money for Planned Parenthood.

On the night of the election, the bar offered free champaign to everyone in a toast to the “future Madame President”, and if she didn’t win, well . . . Whiskey!

Kenneth Lewis Barrett, 71-year-old mayor of Winston, Oregon arrested for soliciting sex with a 14-year-old girl who turned out to be a police officer. He describes himself as “71 with the mind of a 17 year old and the energy of a 12 year old.”
Reports The Oregonian:
The 71-year-old mayor of a southern Oregon town was arrested Sunday, accused of setting up a meeting to have sex with a 14-year-old girl who turned out to be a police officer.
Kenneth Lewis Barrett, who began his two-year term as mayor of Winston in January, spent two weeks exchanging Facebook messages with an online decoy created to target adults soliciting sex with children, court documents said.
He was arrested when he showed up to a designated meeting spot in Myrtle Creek, police said.
Barrett mentions in the online messages several times that he’s mayor of Winston, acknowledges the decoy is 14 and describes himself as “71 with the mind of a 17 year old and the energy of a 12 year old,” according to a probable cause affidavit.
Barrett faces allegations of second-degree online sexual corruption and unlawful possession of a firearm after investigators said he admitted to having a 9mm handgun without a concealed weapons permit in his pickup.
Winston is a town of about 5,400 people south of Roseburg in Douglas County. It’s most known for Wildlife Safari, a 600-acre drive-through animal park.
Barrett was one of four men arrested in the online sting that began in late February, said Myrtle Creek Police Chief Don Brown. The other three range in age from 18 to 51 and one was arrested in California, where he lives, after arranging for the fictitious girl to ride a Greyhound bus to live with him.
PORTLAND: RIOT ORGANIZERS RAISE MONEY TO REPAIR BUSINESSES DAMAGED, 71 MUG SHOTS, TRUMP SUPPORTERS TRUCK ATTACKED FOR 8 BLOCKS
Portland police arrested 71 thugs during their anti-Trump riot. Look at their mug shots – taken a shower yet?
When dopehead loonies of Democrat Party are out on the streets, expect the following:
Flag burning. Glass bottles. Smashed windows. Vandalized buildings. Fire. The usual liberal out-of-control lunacy.
But guess what, organizers of the original protest identified as Portland’s Resistance started a gofundme account to help repair businesses damaged. As of Sunday afternoon, it had raised more than $51,000.
Imagine organizing rioters, destroying businesses, then asking people for money to repair the damage done. But the real problem is, these George Soros paid-thugs may continue to riot all the way to inauguration, after inauguration and as long as Trump is in the office. The liberal wackos don’t feel normal unless they riot, burn the flag and get paid for doing so.
