Sen. Boquist: Victim advocate quits, lithium project derailed, more…

By Oregon State Senator Brian Boquist,
Highlights, excerpts from Sen. Boquist newsletter

— VIDEO: Oregon gubernatorial candidate debate.

— Victim’s advocate quits Multnomah County DA’s office, says Mike Schmidt failed to protect crime victims.

— Environmentalists strike again: An Australian company scraps its lithium project in Oregon’s Alvord Desert. So instead of being able to invest in American-made lithium that is used in many personal electronics such as cell phones, tablets, and laptops, E-Bikes, electric toothbrushes, tools, hoverboards, scooters, and for solar power backup storage, Oregon environmental lobby prevents any mining. Shocking that Wyden hasn’t stepped in to stop these laws, as though he pretends to be an environmentalist to appease the leftist base, he really just seems to care about money. Meanwhile, the USA handed Afghanistan’s lithium supply to China in the disastrous evacuation  last year.

— Oregon’s new wildfire risk map sends some homeowner’s insurance skyrocketing.

— Failed Oregon gubernatorial candidate Nicholas Kristof returns to the New York Times, for now.

— She tried to ‘humanize’ prisons in Oregon. Can she fix the federal system?

THIS TIME LAST YEAR: Obama mask-less party of 100s of celebrities that the media lied and said was toned down. The point isn’t that he had a birthday party, the point is that he is living like there is nothing to fear about COVID. We need to start living like Obama.
