This has been a very bad two weeks for our nation. Last week five unelected FCC officials (thank you Congress for “overseeing” their activities) voted 3-2 to make the internet a regulated utility, now under the jurisdiction of the FCC. The liberal lie of Net Neutrality won, and another sector of the free market economy falls.
Not to be outdone, earlier this week our beloved Congressman, Greg Walden, joined 74 other Republicans who voted to fully fund Obama’s executive order — making millions of illegal aliens legal. In other words, Walden voted for Obama’s Amnesty.
You can read the full story here. I’m certain Walden will soon be traveling the district (on the tax payers dime), giving excuses for this traitorous behavior. Get ready to hear:
Wednesday morning at Klamath Community College a group of about 30 government officials and state-wide bureaucrats gathered to congratulate each other for signing a non-binding agreement to launch the Klamath IDEA project. Klamath IDEA stands for Inspire Development – Energize Acceleration. According the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce’s website, the big idea (pun intended) is to
If you’ve surfed the web anytime since January, you were bound to see a Greg Walden ad. The picture above shows two ads. The one of the left is from February, which has now been replaced with the ad on the right. Notice any difference?
The change is subtle, but that is exactly how career politicians work. They slowly shift from one position to another all the while claiming to have your best interest at heart. But do they? Does he? Let’s examine the change and then you can decide for yourself.
This video appeared yesterday and is an interesting look at how Rep. Greg Walden’s voting record isn’t so different from the other four representatives in Oregon — all democrats.
Rep. Walden likes to make the case since he’s the only Republican in Oregon, that we can’t un-elect him. Watch the video and see if that is such a good idea now that the truth of his voting record is coming to light.
Today, Klamath County Commissioner Dennis LInthicum announced his bid to represent the 2nd congressional district in Oregon. According to Linthicum's press release:
Dennis Linthicum was first elected to County Commissioner by unseating fellow republican and four-term incumbent John Elliott in 2010. Linthicum announced on September 17th that he was forming a congressional exploratory committee.
Klamath County Commissioner Dennis LInthicum launched an exploratory website today. The site is a simple one page website that aims to collect feedback from voters on whether he should run and if so what issues are most important to people in the district.
On September 17th Linthicum announced he was forming and exploratory committee in order to decide whether the challenge eight term incumbent Greg Walden.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2013
KLAMATH FALLS, ORE. - Today, Constitution Day, at the Klamath County Commissioner’s Weekly Public Meeting, Dennis Linthicum announced his intention to explore pursuing the U.S. Representative position in Oregon’s Second District.
“After talking to the people of Klamath County and surrounding areas, I’m convinced that those in the 2nd District of Oregon are looking for leadership and strong, Constitutionally conservative values,” Commissioner Dennis Linthicum said before the meeting. “Our economy is struggling and, at the county level, I see every day how individuals, families and businesses are impacted by bad policies and tone-deaf regulation. My goal with this exploratory effort is not to turn away from Klamath County’s issues, but to be able to represent them, and other counties in the 2nd District, in a more substantial way at the Federal level.”
Someone once said a picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore...
A recent Letter to the Editor and a radio ad campaign by the Citizens for Klamath Schools PAC take direct aim at Dennis Linthicum, by launching several personal attacks. Isn't it interesting that when someone opposes the Left (increasing taxes to solve a problem) that the person who stands up against these “elites” who “know what’s best for you” is personally attacked? Well it should be no surprise. Rule #13 in Communist Saul Alinsky's handbook, Rules for Radicals, states:
If you read the Sunday paper's lead article, 2012 Looking Back / 2013 Looking Forward, there were some interesting trends:
While this is an interesting perspective from a select section of the Klamath community, my specific question is where are the opinions from Jeld-Wen, from South-Valley Bank & Trust, from Bell Hardware, from Lithia Motors, Columbia Forrest Products, Fred Meyers, Basin Mediactive, Winema Electric, your favorite restaurant owner and from a former Aqua Glass employee? If the paper was really interested in giving us a story on the real economic outlook for 2013, you would've seen fewer opinions from students, volunteers and government employees and more from business leaders.
