Early Accomplishments of the Trump Administration

With an avalanche of negative media attacks against the Trump Administration, it is easy to lose sign of the concrete accomplishments, including signing thirteen Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolutions in his first 100 days, more than any other President. These resolutions nullified unnecessary regulations and blocked agencies from reissuing them.  President Trump also signed 30 executive orders during his first 100 days, and has worked with Congress to enact 28 laws during the first 100 days of his Administration.  Below is a timeline of accomplishments to help us all remember that things are better than the media makes them look.

Earlier this week, a notice in the Business Tribune reported that the Portland Public Schools (PPS) have already drafted findings for what they call “an exemption from the Competitive Bidding Requirement for the following work:  District-wide Fixture and Partial Pipe Replacement”.  This language refers to the poster child for the PPS bond measure:  fixing the lead problem PPS concealed for years.

Portland Public Schools and the Anarchy in Portland: An e-mail from Kate

A concerned Portland parent writes to the Multnomah County Republican Party about a revolution in education within the Portland Public Schools.  As the schools teach a history focused on race, gender and oppression, they raise a generation that is no longer a united America, but a seething mass of conflicting groups.  Deliberately-engineered ignorance of American history is a threat to us all.  If, after reading this "Letter from Kate," you are interested in meeting with other concerned parents in Portland to work for reform, let us know.

Anarchists Kill April 29th Avenue of Roses Parade

The Multnomah County Republican Party had been looking forward to its annual participation in the Avenue of Roses Parade, but has now received word that the criminal elements have succeeded in cancelling the entire Parade. 

We had written a letter to the Mayor, Chief of Police, and District Attorney asking them to help us make this a safe event, a copy of which may be reviewed here, but we received no response from the City or the parade organizers, copied on the letter.  This is one more regrettable step away from the rule of law in Oregon.

Dealing with Screamers and Blockers

[THIS POST SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS OFFERING LEGAL ADVICE.  IN THE CURRENT POLITICAL CLIMATE, ANY CITIZEN'S ARREST MAY BE CHALLENGED AND COULD RESULT IN SUBSTANTIAL LEGAL LIABILITY FOR REASONS EXPLAINED BELOW.]

Our own Leo Stratton has posted video of the Lake Oswego screamerIn light of apparent decisions by local police forces to “stand down” when anti-Trump agitators like the screamer interfere with public displays of support for Trump, questions have arisen as to the scope of authority for those assembled to act in lieu of the police.  This memorandum reviews the pertinent law.

Oregon law provides that “[a] private person may arrest another person for any crime committed in the presence of the private person if the private person has probable cause to believe the arrested person committed the crime.  A private person making such an arrest shall, without unnecessary delay, take the arrested person before a magistrate or deliver the arrested person to a peace officer.”  ORS 133.225(1).  Given that police are typically present, it is easiest to deliver an arrested person to an observing officer, but it is also conceivable that delivery to a sympathetic judge (if one could be identified) would also be useful.  See ORS 133.030 (“magistrates” means judges).
