Unbelievable: 22-year-old man in Oregon sentenced to just 14 months for raping three teens

Bonus: The rapist could be eligible for a reduced sentence or work release!

KATU reports that 22-year-old Joseph Myers was sentenced to just 14 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to raping three teens. He was originally charged with 12 counts of third-degree rape, one count of third-degree sodomy and three counts of unlawful delivery of marijuana to a minor.

The perp’s father called Keizer Police to report that his son had sex with “half a dozen underage girls.”

Read the full KATU story here.

The Statesman-Journal has more details:

“The Keizer Police Department to conduct a months-long investigation into Myers, eventually uncovering the disclosures of six different underage girls. An indictment was later filed naming three different victims.

According to court records, Myers targeted young runaways and would supply the teens with marijuana.

He met one of his victims when she was 15. Another was 14. A third was 13 years old when Myers first had sexual intercourse with her. Due to the victims being under 16, the acts were considered third-degree rape.”

I’m sure this punishment will really teach this guy a lesson.

Pandering: Obama says every country should be run by a woman

The Hill published an article yesterday in which former President Obama said the following:

“I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything… living standards and outcomes.”

According to Obama, women are “undisputably better leaders.”

Read the whole article here.

One could find a great woman leader in the US and around the world yet let’s take a look at some US women leaders to see if their constituents have seen a “significant improvement” on just about everything, shall we?

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan: A city run amok with homeless criminals, drug needles, repeat offenders, and downtown businesses closing due to criminal activity and inefficient police response times (if they actually respond).

Liberal utopia of Seattle/Q13 Fox photo

Seattle Socialist Council Member Kshama Sawant: While the city is overrun by homeless criminals and repeat offenders, this councilmember whines that a record $6.5 BILLION budget isn’t enough to address deep inequality and racism. As if THAT will improve living standards.

The streets of San Francisco…

San Francisco Mayor London Breed: I don’t need to detail all the problems in San Francisco. Everyone knows it is LITERALLY a sh*thole of a city.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown: Just like other west coast, progressive-run cities, Portland has a major problem with the homeless and their criminal activities. But here’s another bonus under the womyn governor: The state was ranked 49th in U.S. graduation rate in 2017.

The street of LA…

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor District 1 Representative Hilda Solis: Los Angeles saw a 12% increase in homelessness despite spending $619M in tax payer dollars. Bonus: Typhus and leprosy!

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf: A city that has obtained $9 million taxpayer dollars to build affordable housing yet has delivered ZERO units. Yet if you are an illegal alien you’re entitled to early warnings so you can avoid ICE raids.

While there are some brilliant women leaders around the world, to state that every nation would thrive under the leadership of women is just flat-out inaccurate. Especially if they are a “progressive” woman.

Triggered: Oregon high school stages walk out due to offensive language & Chick-fil-A food truck

If you are a Christian and don’t believe in homosexual marriage you WILL be punished. Punished for hurting the feelings of those who don’t feel safe with your beliefs.

In West Linn, Oregon (just south of Portland), students staged a walkout because of what they believe is damaging actions/beliefs and they just want to feel safe. They claim there’s been a rise in “transphobic” language, bullying and that a transgender student had his/her/it (I’m unsure of their preferred pronoun) car vandalized.

Then there’s another HORROR: There’s been a Chick-fil-A food cart at home football games. That will soon come to an end because yummy chicken sandwiches are triggering.

Read the whole story here or watch below.

Kids today are so fragile. Better grow up fast young ones because the REAL WORLD doesn’t offer safe spaces for your precious feelings.

Homeless Portland man receives probation & mental health/drug treatment at his 68th conviction

It shouldn’t have taken a 68th conviction to get this man some much-needed treatment. We’ll see if he actually takes advantage of it.

As reported by Oregon Live: A homeless man who is one of Portland’s most frequently arrested people is getting a chance to get drug, alcohol and mental health treatment instead of prison time for his most recent convictions this week — for threatening a woman and her minor son as they cowered in their locked car.

Brian Ray Lankford, 50, was sentenced to three years of probation through the Multnomah County Justice Reinvestment Program, which also is geared to help him find stable housing.

Repeat offender Lankford

Lankford has been arrested more than 220 times in the past decade and — as of Monday — convicted 68 times for crimes including misdemeanor theft, trespassing, harassment, disorderly conduct and interfering with public transportation, according to his court file. He often has been sentenced to fines, short stints in jail or probation in which he was not actively supervised.

On Monday, Lankford pleaded guilty to unlawful use of a weapon and menacing after a woman arrived home in August 2017 to discover Lankford behind her Goose Hollow-area home, just a few blocks from Portland State University. She told him to leave, and he began swinging a 3-foot-long tree branch toward the woman and her son, who had retreated to their locked car and called 911, investigators said.

The boy told police he worried Lankford was going to break their car windows and hurt them. The boy’s mother, Tiffany Hammer, told the Portland City Council in May that Lankford was a repeat criminal who was among a homeless population that commits a wide array of crimes around their neighborhood. On that particular day, Hammer said, she thinks he was trying to steal from her home.

Lankford told The Oregonian/OregonLive last year that he’s been arrested so many times that sometimes he cares if he goes to jail and sometimes he doesn’t. He said he uses methamphetamines, and it’s easy to feel hopeless.

The defense and the prosecution worked out the terms of Lankford’s plea agreement, which was approved by Multnomah County Circuit Judge Benjamin Souede.

A spokesman for the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, Brent Weisberg, said state guidelines recommended Lankford be sentenced to 13 to 14 months of prison. But the district attorney’s office thought probation, treatment and help finding housing would be better at addressing Lankford’s problems.

If Lankford fails to abide by the terms of his probation, he could get about two to five years in prison, Weisberg said.

“The hope is he’ll engage in the wraparound services that are being offered,” Weisberg said.

Acting ICE director calls out jurisdictions with sanctuary policies for threatening public safety

Demorats have no objection to releasing illegal criminals back into our cities to continue to terrorize law-abiding citizens. Remember this when they want to come for your God-give right to protect yourself.

Excerpts from ICE press release dated 9/26/2019:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Matthew T. Albence held a White House press briefing Thursday to explain how sanctuary policies threaten public safety and called on the public to hold their local lawmakers accountable. The briefing made clear that local jurisdictions across the U.S. that refuse to cooperate with ICE are complicit in the crimes committed by aliens who ICE could have otherwise been arrested and removed.

Under federal law, ICE has the authority to lodge immigration detainers with law enforcement partners who have custody of individuals arrested on criminal charges and who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens. The detainer form asks the other law enforcement agency to notify ICE in advance of release and to maintain custody of the alien for a brief period so that ICE can take custody of that person in a safe and secure setting upon release from that agency’s custody. Across the United States, several jurisdictions refuse to honor detainers and instead choose to willingly release criminal offenders back into their local communities where they are free to offend.

Acting Director Albence made clear that state and local jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement not only betray their duty to protect public safety, but force ICE to be more visible in those areas.

Below are some examples of the risks posed by laws and policies restricting cooperation with ICE:

In September 2019, ICE officers arrested Jose Alejandro Lopez-Gutierrez, 56, in Colorado. Lopez-Gutierrez, a Mexican national, was arrested and booked into the Boulder County (CO) Jail after an arrest for felony sex assault on a child. ICE lodged a detainer on Lopez-Gutierrez in May 2019, but the Boulder County Jail released him from custody three days later without notifying ICE. He has previously been removed on one prior occasion.

In January 2019, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office (NC) arrested Angel Diaz-Vera, 40, a Mexican national, for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). ICE lodged a detainer, but he was released from local custody. In June 2019, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office again arrested Diaz-Vera for two counts of assault on a female, assault by strangulation, assault with a deadly weapon, and DWI. He again was released from Mecklenburg County despite ICE issuing another detainer and remains at large.

In July 2019, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (OR) arrested Alejandro Maldonado-Hernandez, 30, of Mexico, for manslaughter, assault and reckless driving. ICE lodged a detainer with the Washington County Jail, but he was released in August 2019 and remains at-large.

While ICE conducts daily at-large arrests of criminal aliens, this week, officers also focused on people who had been released from uncooperative jurisdictions. Of the nearly 1,300 at-large arrests made this week, ICE officers apprehended 199 people who could have been arrested at a jail if the agency’s detainers had been honored. Of all the aliens taken into custody:

Three (3) had convictions for murder or manslaughter; 100 had convictions for sex crimes – nearly half (47) had convictions for sex crimes involving a minor; 70 had convictions for drug crimes; and 328 had convictions for driving under the influence.”

Portland Thorns soccer fans boo during halftime military swearing-in ceremony

Typical progressives…it’s all about THEIR feelings. Can’t respect the fact that these kids volunteered for this service and that this was the enlistees’ ceremony. Classless.

Details from Fox News: Fans at a National Women’s Soccer League game rained down boos during a U.S. Armed Forces swearing-in ceremony Wednesday after the enlistees were asked to pledge they would obey the orders of President Trump.

The ceremony took place at Providence Park in Portland, Ore., while the Portland Thorns were facing the North Carolina Courage. The event was scheduled ahead of the 2019 season when the club discovered it would be playing on Sept. 11, according to The Oregonian.

The crowd applauded the group after it took the Oath of Enlistment but booed when the enlistees were asked to “obey the orders of the President of the United States.”

The boos come as Major League Soccer came under fire for banning political banners in its club’s stadiums. The National Women’s Soccer League does not have a fan code of conduct but agreed with its partner club, the Portland Timbers, to ban political signage at Thorns games.

The failure of liberal logic summed up in two Oregon headlines

Headline One: E-cigarette deaths climb as officials confirm some illnesses caused by oil in lungs from vaping marijuana

Headline Two: Oregon is one step closer to being the first state to legalize psychedelic mushrooms

Details from Headline One: At least four people have died after using e-cigarettes and about 450 possible cases of severe lung diseases are now under investigation — more than doubling the breadth of the mysterious illness that has gripped the country, federal health officials announced Friday. The cases have spread to 33 states, most related to people vaping marijuana products, officials said.

Details from Headline Two: Oregon voters may get the chance to decide whether or not to become the first state to legalize psychedelic mushrooms next year. The ballot title for the Psilocybin Service Initiative, or Initiative Petition #34, was certified Friday and now supporters of a measure to legalize psilocybin in controlled settings can gather signatures to get the issue on the ballot in 2020. The initiative won’t mean that “magic” mushrooms are legal at all times and everywhere in the state. Instead, the measure would allow “manufacture, delivery, administration of psilocybin at supervised, licensed facilities.”

The recreational use of marijuana was passed in Oregon in 2014 under Ballot Measure 91. Its passage legalized the “recreational use of marijuana, based on regulation and taxation to be determined by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission”.

Yet who could have predicted the bad consequences from legalizing marijuana? That is rhetorical, of course.

So what do progressives want to legalize next? Psychedelic mushrooms!

Oregon man and woman arrested for attacking MAGA hat-wearing President Trump supporter

Victim Lenzner

Remember folks, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From Daily Mail: A man and woman have been arrested accused of attacking a MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporter who was on a date night with his wife.

Luke Lenzner says he was ‘sucker punched’ outside an Oregon bar in the early hours of Saturday morning while wearing his ‘Make America Great Again’ cap.

Pictures show Lenzner in the red hat with Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan emblazoned across it with cuts and bruises to his face.

Police say 23-year-old Adebisi A. Okuneye and Leopold A. Hauser, 22, were arrested and charged with third-degree assault following the incident in Portland.

Lenzner told FOX 12 he was ‘mobbed’ outside the bar by people who ‘just circled me and my wife’.

Security footage shows the couple as they leave the bar. Lenzner appears to point at his hat and say something to other patrons before the altercation.

‘Surrounding me, like literally surrounding me, pushing me. I’m just trying to get through, trying to stop the person from hitting me, from taking my hat, and then I get sucker punched.’

Lenzner says he has been left with bruising and cut to his arms and face.

Hauser and Okuneye are said to have fled before police arrived but Lenzner was able to give officers a license plate. They were arrested a few blocks away and are expected to be arraigned Monday.

Witnesses are said to have accused Lenzner of provoking the attack by pointing to his hat but police say Lenzner was not involved physically in the incident.

Portland, OR taxpayers provided $500,000 for illegal aliens facing deportation/seeking asylum

A new study from Portland State University study (August 2019) found that more than 38,000 people experienced homelessness in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties in 2017. The study also found that some 107,000 people were housing insecure or at risk of homelessness.

Portland Business Journal reports that the study also estimated that it would cost between $2.6 billion and $4.1 billion to provide housing, support, services and operations to the homeless in the region over the next 10 years. Providing rent assistance would also cost between $8.6 billion and $21 billion over the next decade.

Yet the taxpayers cough up half a million dollars to assist illegal aliens. And that number is going to go up to $2M.

Another demorat-run city putting the needs of illegal aliens above those of their own U.S. citizens.

Portland’s free legal assistance program, called Universal Representation, provided at least 341 people with lawyers to represent them in deportation hearings.

According to Oregon Live, the program, called Universal Representation, also helped at least 105 would-be refugees apply for asylum. And of the people served, 23 were unaccompanied immigrant children. More from their story:

“Portland’s City Council approved the service last year and put $500,000 toward its budget from property tax collections. It is run through the Equity Corps of Oregon, with lawyers provided by nonprofits Catholic Charities of Oregon, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, Immigration Counseling Service, Innovation Law Lab and Metropolitan Public Defender.

The program was championed by Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who said at the time of its passage that hundreds of unauthorized immigrants living in Portland faced deportation and could not afford lawyers.

She said providing attorneys free of charge was a matter of “protecting everyone’s constitutional right to due process.” Eudaly didn’t respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

This year, Multnomah County allocated $290,000 to the initiative and the state approved an additional $2 million to expand the service statewide — the first state to do so in the nation.

According to internal city progress reports, the people who received legal services through Portland’s program hailed from many countries: Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Nicaragua, Russia, Ukraine and Venezuela.”

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.”
