'Greater Idaho' movement to absorb rural
Oregon counties 'bad for the country,'
top Dem warns

Original Article

Posted By: Moritz55, 3/5/2023 7:28:59 AM

A campaign to have rural eastern Oregon secede from the blue state and join more conservative Idaho has "virtually no chance" of becoming a reality, according to Idaho's top state Senate Democrat. "I'm very pleased this measure has virtually no chance of advancing into reality," Idaho Senate Minority Leader Melissa Wintrow, D, told Fox News Digital. "It would be bad for all involved and bad for the country, and I am opposed to it at all levels." Wintrow was referring to a resolution making its way through the Idaho Legislature that wouldn't move the Idaho-Oregon border but rather call for formal talks between the states' legislatures about relocating the boundary line.

The procedure is there for a reason -- to secede. "Virtually no chance" should be ignored. Go for it anyway and prove to other conservative counties that it can be done, so that it will be. We cannot live with these Leftists, so we can remove ourselves, one way or another.

FTA: "While there are vast political differences in our region, Greater Idaho is not the proper remedy for those differences," said Wintrow. "Our democratic republic depends on level heads coming together to find solutions to the issues that impact our citizens. Dividing state borders to create enclaves of politically like-minded people is the opposite of a healthy America." If this is the reason Wintrow thinks it's a bad idea for the Greater Idaho movement, that's thin gruel. The residents of eastern Oregon have far more in common economically, culturally, and politically with Idaho than they do with their own in Portland, Eugene, and the rest of dystopia the Left coast. Wintrow is also revealing her hand as a Dem that she has more in common with her fellow Dems in Portlandia than in Idaho. What she really fears is a shift in the balance of power, loss of control, and loss of influence.

Remember Rule #1 regarding dealing with Communist Death Democrats - If a Communist Death Democrat is FOR anything no matter what it is, it is bad for our Country and our lives, if a Communist Death Democrat is AGAINST anything no matter what it is, it is good for our Country and good for our lives. Hate filled and Evil are the two attributes that can be used to describe anyone who is a Communist Death Democrat. These Washington counties are trying to escape hate and evil. As are many counties in California.

Suburban/ rural areas being able to split from Major cities would be a great benefit to the USA. We live in UpState NYS and voting is simply depressing, because we know that NYC and environs determine who will be elected. We are Disenfranchised. 3/4+ of the State is outside DownState/ NYC but we have no voting power. The same goes for Illinois/Chicago, California/ the Coastal areas, etc., all Blue and corrupt.

As a kid, I remember the talk of the Eastern Shore of Maryland joining Delaware to get away from the cesspool of the Baltimore-Washington corridor of Gimmedats. Most of the population of the state is in that region, is very liberal and completely at odds with the more conservative western and eastern regions. I wish them luck. Being overwhelmed by idiots is not a fun situation to be in.

I doubt the Dems will allow it to succeed. If it does, it will start a domino effect that would turn most blue states into city-states. Northern Colorado would go to Wyoming, Western Colorado would go to Utah, Western Pennsylvania would go to Ohio, Northern Minnesota would go to North Dakota and so on. It could trigger a complete reordering of the states, and likely would eliminate many national democrats. Nice to dream about, though.

It's not bad for the country, it's bad for democratic run cities. They loose their meal ticket, they loose their fun money, the money they never earned. Democrats love to spend tax payer money on everything tax payers are against. Like crime, the indoctrination of their children and supporting illegal immigrants. You see, the stupidity of a democrat is pathetic and appalling.

Counties are nearly ideal political units to split the US. The split will not be by state. There are noo "blue states" or "red states". Every state has socialist cities that bully the rest of the population. It's the socialist cities that need to be booted out. Counties splitting off will allow socialist cities to be isolated and removed from Free America.

The Peter (Buttigieg) Principle 5 replies
Posted by Moritz55 3/7/2023 2:32:41 AM Post Reply
In the 1960s, there was a professor and business analyst named Laurence J. Peter. He became famous for coming up with something called the Peter Principle. The informal way to describe it was this: In a business hierarchy, an employee does well and is promoted. He does well in his new, higher-level job and is promoted again. He does well in that position and is promoted yet again. Finally, he rises to a job that is beyond his abilities. He is no longer promoted and stays in the job he does not do well. "In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence," Peter wrote.

Tucker Carlson released never-before-seen footage from the Jan. 6, 2021 riots at Capitol Hill that appear to dispel several narratives pushed by the Democrat-controlled House Select Committee and the legacy media. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy granted "Tucker Carlson Tonight" an exclusive first look to over 40,000 hours of security camera footage from the Capitol Building that were hidden from the public for over two years. On Monday, Carlson offered the first glimpses of footage involving key figures from that day. Carlson concluded the footage proves that lawmakers and the media were "lying" about the events that took place on Jan. 6.

Jim Banks has emerged as a leader in the GOP-controlled House of the fight against the “wokeism” these theories collectively represent. A fourth-term congressman from Indiana, Banks has earned his anti-woke bona fides by engaging in high-profile clashes with military officials over their embrace of “anti-racist” literature and related initiatives, the Chamber of Commerce over issues ranging from woke capitalism to China, and Twitter over his “misgendering” of Assistant Secretary for Health Admiral Rachel Levine.

The need for America to re-affirm the First Amendment and its principles has once again been underscored by the recent findings coming out about the origins and impact of the coronavirus.

Unfortunately for Ron DeSantis, expectations of him could not be higher. For a critical mass of Republicans seeking to move past Donald Trump, the Florida governor is already the anointed savior. While Trump still holds the lead in most polling, DeSantis is almost always second choice and is the favorite for many Republicans who want a new standard bearer because they believe Trump can’t win. Though he has not yet launched a campaign, and his allies say he would not until the state legislature completes its session in May, DeSantis definitely wants us all to think he will soon be a presidential candidate.

The Fox News host will air five stories culled from the footage Monday and Tuesday nights, countering the overblown “insurrection” narrative the Democrats and their media toadies have been pushing since Day One. The characterization of conservative Republicans as an “ultra-MAGA semi-fascist” menace to democracy was pushed by the partisan J6 committee and was the Democrats’ main sales pitch at the midterms last year.
