Militia threat shuts down Oregon Statehouse amid walkout

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Capitol will be closed Saturday due to a "possible militia threat" from right-wing protesters as a walkout by Republican lawmakers over landmark climate change legislation drags on.

Republican state senators fled the Legislature — and some, the state — earlier this week to deny the majority Democrats enough votes to take up the climate bill, which would dramatically reduce fossil fuel emissions by 2050. It would be the second program of its kind in the nation after California if passed.

Gov. Kate Brown then dispatched the state police to round up the rogue lawmakers, but none appeared in the Capitol on Friday and the stalemate seemed destined to enter its third day with a week left in the legislative session.

Right-wing groups posted their support for the GOP lawmakers Friday on social media — in one instance offering to provide escorts to them should the state police come for them.

A group of local Republicans were set to protest inside the Capitol on Saturday when lawmakers were present, and anti-government groups threatened to join, prompting the statehouse shutdown.

One of the groups, the Oregon Three Percenters, joined an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. Dozens of people occupied the remote Oregon refuge for more than a month to protest federal control of Western lands. The standoff began to unravel when authorities fatally shot the group's spokesman and arrested key leaders as they headed to a community meeting.

"The Oregon State Police has recommended that the Capitol be closed tomorrow due to a possible militia threat," Carol Currie, spokeswoman for Senate President Peter Courtney, said in an e-mail to The Associated Press late Friday. https://news.yahoo.com/militia-threat-shuts-down-oregon-041210982.html

8. If the threat was "validated", who's been arrested? I want names.

Otherwise it's all made up bullshit. Made up like the news. There's a name for that but for the life of me I can't remember what it is.

18. They did not have a quorum

No reason to be in session because they were a dead body. They could not do anything other than bitch to each other.

9. The Liberal Governor sent the State Police to forcibly coerce the presence of Republicans

Republicans didn't do that

The Libs may be getting the response they are asking for

Oregon Democrats Order State Police to Force Republican Senators to Return, to Pass a CO2 Cap and Trade Bill

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown authorized state police to find the lawmakers and bring them back. They are each being fined $500 for every day there aren’t enough senators for a vote. (So far, it’s been two days.) Oregon State Police said they are also coordinating with law enforcement agencies in nearby states to find the Republicans.....

.....Oregon Senate Republican leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said in a statement that Republicans were being “bullied by the majority party.”... .Another state senator in hiding, Brian Boquist, went further, threatening the police who are trying to round up the wayward lawmakers. “Send bachelors and come heavily armed,” he said. “I’m not going to be a political prisoner.”



That is how Fascist the Democrats have become

12. About as facisist as the Texas Republicans who pulled this stunt first...lol



...
The fugitive politicians were finally tracked down at a Holiday Inn in the small town of Ardmore, where they were staying under assumed names.

Four Texas police officers, dispatched by the state's Republican governor, confronted two dozen of the representatives, but failed to persuade them to return. They were unable to press the matter further, lacking the power of arrest in Oklahoma.

The dispute has far-reaching consequences for American national politics.

Texas Republicans - who control the state government after more than a century of Democratic dominance - have used their power to draw a series of bizarrely shaped districts, designed to clump together pockets of Republican voters, and split up Democrats. The map is designed to ensure that Texas sends up to seven extra Republican congressmen to Washington at the 2004 elections.

With Democrats unable to vote down the map, they hatched a plan to flee en masse, depriving the 150 seat state house of a quorum, and effectively shutting it down.

Lawyers were hard at work for both sides yesterday, as enraged Republicans struggled to press federal charges against their errant colleagues and drag them home by force.
