Proposed bill in Oregon for government to seize private property in an ’emergency’

Logan Washburn reports for the The RF Angle, Jan. 17 2021:

The Oregon state legislature is currently considering a bill which would allow for the Governor to seize, use, or possess any private property during a state of emergency.

HB-2238 is supposedly meant to clarify the “Governor’s authority to use property during an emergency.” There are already provisions in place to allow for limited use of private property by the state government, but this bill seeks to drastically expand these. As proposed in HB-2238,

“Whenever the Governor has declared a state of emergency, the Governor may issue, amend and enforce rules and orders to:
1) Control, restrict and regulate by rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibitions on shipments, price fixing, allocation or other means, the use, sale or distribution of food, feed, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, goods and services;
2) Prescribe and direct activities in connection with use, conservation, salvage and prevention of waste of materials, services and facilities, including, but not limited to, production, transportation, power and communication facilities training, and supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs; and
3) Take any other action, including through the seizure, use or possession of any real or personal property…”

The Oregon governor would be allowed to take part in “rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibition on shipments, price fixing, allocation…” She would also be allowed to “Prescribe and direct activities in connection with… supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs.” When it comes down to it, this bill would allow the Governor broad discretion in what to seize, when to seize it, and how to use it.

Governor Brown has continually declared a State of Emergency in order to justify her use of executive orders.In fact, she recently extended the State of Emergency again, through March of 2021. Governor Brown has also allegedly used mob-like strongarm tactics on businesses that don’t comply with her orders. Given this history, one finds it entirely possible for her to declare a state of emergency in order to take control of any private property she wishes. Potential targets could include hospitals, housing, non-compliant businesses, and perhaps even privately-owned firearms.

The very thought that the government could unilaterally seize one’s property ought terrify every American. The United States of America was founded upon the protection of life, liberty, and property. Whenever a government becomes hostile to these ends, it is no longer a legitimate government, but a despotism.

Rep. Marty Wilde

HB 2238 is sponsored by Rep. Marty Wilde, 46, a Democrat and lawyer who represents District 11 that includes the city of Eugene.

Incredibly, Wilde is a U.S. military veteran, who served for more than 25 years  in the Oregon Army National Guard and later the Air National Guard. He was deployed in Bosnia, Qatar, and Afghanistan, where he was awarded a Bronze Star for being Chief, Rule of Law.

Money laundering: Governors Newsom and Kemp paid over $1B to Chinese company for COVID-19 supplies that never arrived

Health Ranger reports for Channel 411 News, Nov. 23, 2020, that in April of this year, it was revealed that California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) wired half a billion dollars — the first of two installments  — to BYD, an electric car company in China, to supposedly purchase “N-95 masks” for COVID-19. (Natural News)

But Newsom sent the money without voting or approval by the state legislature. When pressed about the details of the deal, Newsom refused to disclose them. Nor were the face masks actually delivered. As of November 2020, BYD has yet delivered a single face mask.

Now, there is evidence Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) may also be involved in the same scheme, according to attorney Lin Wood, who is on President Trump’s legal team litigating to prevent the certification of alleged election results.

In an interview on the John Fredericks Show, Wood said that governors send huge amounts of money to China under the cover of buying “covid supplies.” China then launders the money into financial kickbacks for the governors’ family members or business entities. Here’s the link to the interview:

https://www.brighteon.com/cc528344-8f39-46f4-bbbd-09f895ef389f

At 6:17 mark in the interview, Wood said:

“I believe that Brian Kemp is corrupt, and I think he was corrupted with Chinese money. And I don’t think he wants this election overthrown and the real results posted because then Brian Kemp is going to be facing a Trump administration attorney general, and Brian Kemp would find himself in jail. It’s that simple. He sold himself out, now he’s trying to hide to try to get this election validated even though it’s illegal, because if it’s invalidated.”

At the 17:00 mark:

“I’m a defamation lawyer. I have stated publicly that Brian Kemp and [Georgia secretary of state Brad] Raffensperger are corrupt and they took money from the Chinese on the Covid deal and on the Dominion [voting machine] voting deal. I bet you anything Brian Kemp won’t sue me for defamation. Because he knows if he did, he’d go into court, I’d have discovery, and I would prove that he did it, that it’s true.”

Independent media sources report that the Trump administration, via the NSA, has proof of financial transactions that show Kemp and Raffensperger taking bribery money from China. Trump is waiting for Kemp and Raffensperger to “certify” Georgia’s voting results before moving against them for criminal fraud and corruption.

China runs a web of financial kickbacks and bribes to multiple governors and state officials across America, including California and Georgia. In every case, the state officials transferred huge sums of money to Chinese front companies for “Covid supplies” that either were never delivered or delivered as low-cost, low-quality items nowhere near the stated value.

A portion of the extra funds is then kicked back to the state officials’ family members and specially structured business entities connected to the officials. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) may soon be implicated in this criminal corruption scheme. NY Gov. Andrew “nipple rings” Cuomo (D) is likely also involved.

According to Health Ranger, we should xpect criminal indictments soon.

Experts™: Oregon governor orders a “two-week freeze” to stop the spread of Wuhan virus

Last Thursday, Oregon Governor Kate Brown tweeted that Oregon will be going under a “two-week freeze” to stop the spread of Wuhan virus beginning November 18.

Oregon has a population of 4.2 million. Apparently their Wuhan virus numbers are so drastic that this two-week freeze is required to save lives. Let’s take a look at their Wuhan virus numbers, shall we?

The numbers, updated Nov. 13:

Oregon’s population is 4.2 million. Their total cumulative postive Wuhan virus cases: 52,193. Total deaths from Wuhan virus: 753.

You do the math.

Remember, peons: Now is the time “to do what you’re told.”

Oregon bureaucrats applies rules when as suits them

Federal immigration laws? Forget about them. Oregon is a sanctuary state so the rules don’t apply to illegal aliens in that state.

Large gatherings (such as weddings) during Wuhan virus? Nope. Those are only allowed if you join a very large “peaceful” protest.

One hundred days of rioting? That’s OK.

Looting and destroying private and public property? That’s A-OK as well.

Yet the Oregon GOP filing a voter statement 29 seconds too late? Sorry, that won’t be allowed to make it to the voter pamphlet because the deadline rules “apply equally to everyone.”

Isn’t THAT rich?

Apparently the GOP waited until 4:59 on August 25 (deadline was 5:00 that day) to file their statement. One of the reasons the GOP statement was late? They were locked out of the online filing system for several hours, delaying the party’s ability to file its statement.

KGW8 reports that the GOP statement said, “Had enough? Vote Republican!” It attacked Democratic leadership in Oregon on issues ranging from “Unrestrained rioting” in Portland to mismanagement of the pandemic resulting in “catastrophic small business losses.”

The Oregon GOP has filed a lawsuit in Marion County to get their statement in the pamphlet before it goes to print later this month.

Wuhan Virus Overreach: Salem, OR salon owner fined $14k; gets visit from CPS

OSHA going after the salon owner because she opened her business against “orders.”

OSHA deems her an “employer” instead of a business who has independent contractors – which is how many, many salons operate. OSHA didn’t like her answers, so somehow CPS got involved and visited her family. A CPS bureaucrat questioned her son ALONE without a parent or attorney present.

Read the whole story here.

From the Dana Loesch show:

“Dana (@DLoesch) is joined by Lindsey Graham, Owner of Glamour Salon in Salem, OR – who was recently fined $14,000 by OSHA for safely and responsibly opening her salon, and the additional oppressive tactics by CPS (Child Protective Services) getting involved, which is essentially the use of government agencies to bully her and her family. This is just another example of how tiny tyrants are showing themselves, and law abiding citizens end up as victims. None of this should happen in a FREE society!

Oregon governor signs “progressive” paid family leave act; includes benefits for illegal aliens

Oregon Governor Kate Brown

More benefits for illegal aliens that Oregon tax-paying citizens will have to cough up. That’s what you get when you live in a sanctuary state.

Excerpts from Oregon Live:

“Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Friday signed what advocates are calling the nation’s most progressive paid family and medical leave measure, making the state the first in the country to offer 100% wage replacement for minimum-wage workers.

The law, which will pay out benefits beginning in 2023, gives 12 weeks paid time off to new parents, victims of domestic violence and those who become ill or need to care for a sick family member. It also includes people who may be in the country illegally and those working part time. Residents need to work 1,000 hours a year to qualify.

The law allows workers to take time off not only to care for blood relatives, but also for significant others, friends and other close associates that are the “equivalent of a family relationship.”

“This bill is written for 2019,” said then-House Majority Leader Jennifer Williamson on the floor in June. “It better captures the structures of families and reflects the types of communities and neighbors we strive to be.”

Although those making minimum wage will see 100% wage replacement, benefits decrease as income rises.

The Oregon Employment Department will determine what percentage of payroll contributions should go to fund program, though statutorily it can’t be more than 1%. Workers will pay 60% of whatever rate is decided, with employers contributing the remaining 40%.

Small businesses with less than 25 employees will not have to pay into the program, although their workers will still receive benefits.”

ICE releases list of illegal aliens accused of rape and murder who were released by sanctuary city policies

Demorats working hard to protect illegal alien criminals and endangering law-abiding citizens.

From Daily Mail: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has released a list of criminal illegal aliens who were released into communities by sanctuary city policies, as federal officials try to convince cities and states to assist immigration enforcement.

The list released last week highlights cases in Oregon, which has the oldest sanctuary state law in the country, and Washington state, which passed an expanded sanctuary state policy last month.

Washington’s new sanctuary law is among the strongest in the nation, barring local police from assisting federal immigration enforcement officers in any way.

In signing the law, Democratic Governor Jay Inslee said, ‘We will not be complicit in the Trump administration’s depraved efforts to break up hard-working immigrant and refugee families.’

ICE argues that sanctuary policies, which bar local officials from notifying federal officials before they release illegal aliens from detention, allow dangerous criminals back into communities, and force ICE agents to conduct arrests at homes and workplaces rather than the controlled environment of a jail.

Illegal alien Fidel Lopez

Oregon jail releases Mexican man who raped dog

In February, Fidel Lopez, 52, pleaded guilty to raping his fiancee’s Lhasa Apso mix in Portland, Oregon.

While he was being held in the Multnomah County Jail, ICE officials interviewed him and determined that he was an illegally present Mexican citizen. The same day, ICE lodged an immigration detainer on Lopez for violating immigration laws.

In April 2019, Lopez was sentenced to 60 days in jail, the maximum allowed under state law for animal sexual abuse, and released on time served.

ICE says that the county jail did not honor the immigration detainer and released him without notice to immigration officials.

After his release, ICE apprehended Lopez at his residence and served him a notice to appear. He is currently being held at ICE’s Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma pending immigration proceedings.

‘There is an inherent increase in risk to personnel and bystanders when ICE officers and agents must go out into the community to proactively locate these previously detained criminal aliens,’ ICE said in a statement.

Honduran man ‘kills and dismembers his cousin’ after Washington cops released him without notifying ICE

In October 2017, Rosalio Ramos-Ramos was arrested in Kent, Washington on suspicion of methamphetamine possession after calling 911 and making bizarre confessions to involvement in a supposed sexual assault.

While being booked into King County Jail, Ramos-Ramos made statements that he wanted to die and began fighting with corrections officers, injuring five of them, and was hospitalized for a head injury he himself sustained while officers subdued him.

After seeing his named on the local booking log, ICE identified Ramos-Ramos as an illegally present Honduran citizen with prior felony convictions and four prior removals from the U.S.

ICE told the local police department that policy barred them from arresting people at a hospital, and issued a detainer asking the local cops to hand him over for deportation.

However, Kent police were not on hand when Ramos-Ramos regained consciousness after a medically induced coma and walked free from the hospital.

In January 2018, Ramos-Ramos was arrested again in Seattle on suspicion of killing his cousin, dismembering the body, and stuffing the parts in a suitcase. He was charged with murder and is being held in the King County Jail on a $2 million bond. ICE has lodged another detainer with local jail officials.

Illegal alien Martin Gallo-Gallardo

In March 2018, Martin Gallo-Gallardo was arrested in Portland, Oregon and charged with domestic violence. While he was detained at the Multnomah County Jail, ICE identified him as a citizen of Mexico who was unlawfully present in the U.S. and lodged an immigration detainer.

ICE says that jail officials did not honor the immigration detainer and released the convicted criminal two days later, without notifying ICE. Following his release, ICE made multiple, unsuccessful attempts to locate and arrest the Gallo-Gallardo.

In October 2018, Gallo-Gallardo was arrested again, this time on felony murder charges for allegedly killing his wife. An autopsy found the wife died from blunt-force head trauma and multiple stab wounds.

Following the murder, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office blamed ICE and said federal agents should have tracked down and arrested Gallo-Gallardo after he was released. Gallo-Gallardo is being held in the Clackamas County Jail without bond on the murder charge. ICE has lodged another detainer with local officials.

Convicted rapist ‘returns to victimize same wheelchair-bound woman’ after Seattle officials release him in defiance of ICE detainer

Mexican national Francisco Carranza-Ramirez, 35, is currently on the run from cops in Seattle after police said that he returned and raped the same wheelchair-bound victim he was previously convicted of sexually assaulting.

Police say that the initial rape occurred in September 2018 when Carranza-Ramirez saw the woman and followed her into her apartment building, attacking her in front of her two-year-old son. The woman managed to surreptitiously dial 911 and left the line open during the attack, and Carranza-Ramirez was caught in the act when police responded.

Carranza-Ramirez entered an Alford plea to the rape charge in February, admitting a jury would likely find him guilty. He is a Mexican national present in the country illegally.

He was released from jail last Thursday, on a judge’s admonishment to return to Mexico of his of own volition. Instead, police say that he returned to the 32-year-old woman’s home and proceeded to strangle, beat and rape her in front of her toddler son.

Carranza-Ramirez is currently being sought, and officials in Seattle now believe he may have returned to Mexico. US Marshals are helping sheriff’s detectives and working with Mexican authorities to track down and arrest Carranza-Ramirez.

Ghoulish Oregon law allows doctors to starve & dehydrate mentally-incapacitated patients to death

A law in Oregon legally allows medical practitioners to starve and dehydrate to death patients with dementia, Alzheimer’s or another mental illness who are deemed mentally incompetent.

The law began as Senate Bill 494, with a vague, uninformative title: “Relating to health care decisions; prescribing an effective date.” The summary of the bill is a bit more informative, but still obscure: “Establishes Advance Directive Adoption Committee for purpose of adopting form of advance directive to be used in this state.

But Steven Ertelt of LifeSiteNews rightly warns that SB 494, touted as a “simple update” to Oregon’s current advance directive, actually is designed to allow for the starving and dehydrating to death of patients with dementia or mental illness by removing current safeguards in Oregon’s advance directive statute that preserve Oregonians’ ability to receive food and hydration even if they lose mental competency.

SB 494 targets people who become mentally incapable of making health care decisions, such as someone with dementia, but who can still eat, drink and make other everyday choices.

How SB 494 works:

  • Oregon had an advance directive that allowed a person to specify types of care they will want, including instructions for end-of-life-care such as tube feeding, as well as who will be their health care representative if they become mentally incompetent.
  • Under the advance directive law, if it’s not clear what a mentally incompetent person desires or wants, the person’s health care representative did not have the authority to end the incompetent person’s life unless the person is in a specific end-of-life situation.
  • SB 494, however, removes the advance directive document from Oregon statute. The result is that an incompetent person’s life may be ended according to the wishes of their health care representative, even if it’s against the unwritten or ambiguously written desires of the incompetent person.

Gayle Atteberry, former executive director of Oregon Right to Life, said SB 494 is  pushed by big medical insurance companies:

This bill, written in a deceiving manner, has as its goal to save money at the expense of starving and dehydrating dementia and mentally ill patients to death. Oregon law currently has strong safeguards to protect patients who are no longer able to make decisions for themselves. Nursing homes and other organizations dedicated to protecting vulnerable patients work hard to make sure patients receive the food and water they need.  Senate Bill 494, pushed hard by the insurance lobby, would take patient care a step backwards and decimate patient rights. Oregon Right to Life is committed to fighting this terrible legislation every step of the way. We have already seen the outrage of countless Oregonians that the Legislature would consider putting them in danger.  We expect the grassroots response to only increase.”

On February 16, 2018, the Oregon State House passed HB 4135 — the House version of SB 474 — by 35 (D) vs. 25 (R).

On February 27, 2018, the Oregon State Senate passed SB 474 by a 17 (D) vs. 12 (R) vote. Every Democrat, except Sen. Betsy Johnson, voted “yes”. Every Republican except Sen. Jeff Kruse, voted “no”.

On March 16, 2018, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, a Democrat and known supporter of abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List, signed the euthanasia bill into law, effective June 2, 2018.

Oregonians will now need to specifically opt into an advance directive to ensure that their health care representative does not end their life.

A similar bill, HB 5898, is now being considered by the Connecticut state legislature. (LifeNews)

Oregon governor signs mandatory, statewide rent control bill

KTVZ reports that Oregon has become the first in the nation to impose statewide rent control upon landlords. From their report:

“Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has signed the first mandatory statewide rent control bill for the U.S. as the economically booming state struggles to control a spiraling housing crisis.

The Democratic governor at a signing ceremony Thursday said the measure will “provide some immediate relief to Oregonians struggling to keep up with rising rents.”

The law will limit rent increases to 7 percent each year plus inflation. Landlords must also provide just cause before evicting tenants after the first year of occupancy.

The law takes effect immediately because Democrats who control the Legislature say the housing crisis is an emergency.”

The governor announced the following on Twitter:

“Every Oregonian should have access to housing choices that allow them and their families to thrive. Today I signed the country’s first statewide rent control bill, providing immediate relief to Oregonians struggling to keep up with rising rents.”

The bill is 22 pages long. Read it here.

More bureaucracy that will have a very, very minimal impact on Oregon’s homeless crisis. Just ask New York City how that rent control has worked for their homeless crisis.

Oregon lawmakers introduce bill to eliminate proof of legal residence requirement for driver’s licenses/IDs

Oregon has automatic voter registration at the DMV. To ensure only US citizens vote, the Oregon Secretary of State web site states, “The Elections Division will only send OMV Cards to people who have provided documentation that they are U.S. citizens. Oregon voters are also required to attest to their qualifications –including citizenship — at the time they submit their ballot.”

As reported by Oregon Live: Oregonians should not be required to prove they are U.S. citizens or legal residents to drive a car.

That’s the premise behind a bill filed in Salem this week by a bipartisan group of state lawmakers. If passed opens the door for non-citizens to obtain legal Oregon driver’s licenses, learner’s permits or general identification cards. It wouldn’t apply to commercial driver’s licenses.

The Equal Access to Roads Act would amend state law to allow drivers to submit a statement saying they have “not been assigned a Social Security number” instead of producing documents proving U.S. citizenship or legal residency. Qualified applicants would still have to pass a driver’s test and show they live in Oregon. The bill would not apply to learner’s permits or commercial driver’s licenses.

The bill comes as Oregon in July 2020 will begin issuing driver’s licenses that comply with the 2005 REAL ID Act, which requires states to verify citizenship and add other security features for state licenses. Either a federally recognized form of identification like a passport or Real ID card will be required for any passenger to board domestic flights starting in October 2020.

Proponents say the bill is a logical move that will benefit all Oregonians who are either unwilling or unable to comply with those federal requirements, not just those undocumented workers who may rely on cars to get work, school or elsewhere around the state.

Rep. Diego Hernandez, D-Portland, one of HB 2015’s five chief-sponsors, said it makes sense to give all Oregonians an option other than paying more money for a Real ID starting next year. “Many people are impacted by these strict requirements,” Hernandez said, “including the elderly, domestic violence survivors and immigrants.”

He said that having access to driver’s licenses without producing additional paperwork eliminates a roadblock to getting an essential piece of identification.

If approved, the bill would be effective January 2021. Oregon would still have two licenses if the bill dies in Salem – a Real ID compliant one and a non-Real ID card. The bill removes the legal residency requirements for the non-Real ID license while adding additional civil protections so driver’s licenses holders can’t be discriminated against for not having a Real ID.

Gov. Kate Brown issued a statement in support of the bill. “As a mixed urban and rural state, many Oregonians depend on the ability to drive to support their families and go to school, the doctor, and the grocery store,” Brown said. “Increasing access to driver’s licenses means more Oregonians will safely access their jobs, education, and the services they rely on.“

The bill comes more than a decade after Oregon last issued eight-year driver’s licenses to residents without requiring they produce documentation proving they are citizens or legal residents.
