A Christian Dilemma over Oregon’s Taxpayer Funding of Abortion and its Ongoing Status as a Sanctuary State

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, November 8, 2018

If you believe in God then you know that your first loyalty is to God. After that your loyalty should be to your family, and then to your country in that order. The State of Oregon doesn’t even make it to the short list…

Floyd Prozanski, Scott Rohter, Oregon’s McKenzie Highway and the Truth

Posted by Scott Rohter on Friday, October 26, 2018

There have been over 9,000 accidents, 7,000 injuries and at least 200 deaths on the McKenzie Highway since Floyd Prozanski was elected to the Oregon Legislature in 1991. That is a fact. One of the main reasons I am running for office is to stop the carnage along this road, and to provide motorists with the safety they deserve on any Oregon State Highway, but it is not the ONLY reason I am running for office. Floyd and I disagree on many other issues, but the most important job of any public official is and it should be public safety…

Property Rights Essential if Americans are to Remain Free

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, October 22, 2018

Property rights are one of the most important freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Enshrined in the Bill of Rights, the first major piece of legislation that Congress ever passed back in 1789, property rights are just as important today as they were back then. Without respect for private property freedom doesn’t exist. It wouldn’t have any meaning, and the protection of the right to own property is essential if we are to remain free…

Putting the McKenzie Highway on the Map. The Greatest Threat to Public Safety in Lane County

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, August 27, 2018

The greatest threat to public safety in Lane County is not an earthquake. It isn’t the aerial spraying of commercial herbicides used in the logging industry. It isn’t the possibility of a terrorist attack. The greatest threat to public safety in Lane County is something that we have never even been told about. It is the danger we face from trucks hauling toxic chemicals, hazardous waste, and radioactive materials up and down the McKenzie Highway every day. It is the very real danger of one of those trucks crashing and winding up in the McKenzie River which is the water supply for 200,000 people.

Safe Highways Save Lives – The Latest Victim of the McKenzie Highway

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, June 9, 2018

Floyd Prozanski has been a member of the Oregon Legislature since 1993. He has been the State Senator from District 4 which includes most of the people living along the McKenzie River since 2004. There have been 103 deaths, 5,014 people injured, and 7,241 traffic accidents on the McKenzie Highway between Springfield and Redmond since Floyd Prozanski was elected to the Oregon Legislature, and he has done absolutely nothing about it. He has done nothing to improve the safety of one of Oregon’s most dangerous roads. The latest person to die is…

Watching Oregon go up in Smoke

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Every year between the months of July and November millions of Oregonians watch helplessly as the United States government just allows the our state to go up in smoke. My grandmother use to have a saying… Too much of anything is not good. Maybe the federal government owns too much land and they take it for granted or maybe they just plain don’t care, but our shortsighted and dysfunctional State legislature and a series of incompetent Democratic governors in Salem refuse to take the necessary steps that could put an end to this annual destruction of our State’s forests once and for all and protect what is left of Oregon’s precious natural resources…

Oregon Activist Judge Ann Aiken Strikes Again in Class Action Lawsuit over Climate Change

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, December 10, 2016

A Federal judge who is primarily known for sending Dwight and Steven Hammond back to jail for the remainder of five years as arsonists under the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act has now exerted her extreme liberal bias once again in a national class action lawsuit over climate change…

Facebook Sides with Islamic Extremists for Money

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, August 4, 2016

We have all heard how Islamic extremists are using social media to advance their terrorist activities and obtain new Muslim recruits. It is a well-known fact that the FBI which didn’t recommend an indictment against crooked Hillary Clinton is always looking into the accounts of Facebook users for any signs of radical activity. That is why they obtained a search warrant to look into the Facebook accounts of Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik. They were the two devotees of the “religion of peace “ who committed the massacre in San Bernardino…

Done with the GOP!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, January 12, 2015

Tolerance without discretion is not a virtue so today I have quit the G.O.P. I have decided to stop being tolerant of progressives in the Republican Party who are cooperating with Democrats to fundamentally transform the United States of America. I am done with the GOP. I will not cooperate with the progressive establishment of the GOP who want to destroy our constitutional Republic so I went down to the county elections office and I switched my Party registration to un-AFFILIATED. I registered as “not a member of any political party”… and I suggest you do the same…

Out of Control E.P.A. and Power Hungry Oregon D.E.Q. Claims they Found Levels of Toxic Mercury in the McKenzie River.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, February 2, 2014

The McKenzie River is already one of Oregon’s cleanest and most protected rivers. Certain parts of it are designated as a “Wild and Scenic River” by the United States government and they receive the strictest Federal protections. The McKenzie River is well known to fly fishermen and drift boat enthusiasts alike. People from all over the world come to Oregon to fish in its clean waters and ride its lovely rapids, but wait… The rapids aren’t the only thing that are raging. The battle for control of the river is raging again too. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality says they recently measured trace amounts of mercury in two species of migratory fish that were caught in Springfield near the mouth of the McKenzie River where it joins the Willamette River. The two fish they tested were a Northern Pikeminnow and a Large Scale Sucker fish which make their home in both the Willamette River and in the McKenzie River…

Global Warming or Climate Change… or is it about Time for an Explanation Change?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, December 25, 2013

The temperature outside is a chilly minus ten degrees. I am not in Alaska mind you. I am in Oregon. I am not even in the mountains of Oregon. I am in the central Willamette Valley where the elevation is only about 400 feet above sea level. Is this global warming, climate change, or is it about time for an explanation change? Now there is a new Arctic air mass heading right for our Midwest States and the people back there are bracing for extreme cold. I think it is about time for an explanation change. I think it is time to re-examine the politically correct wisdom or the lack thereof about what is actually going on with the weather…

Smart Meters are a Dumb Idea Part 2… and so is EWEB’s Plan to sell its McKenzie River Customers to Another Electric Utility Company

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, September 19, 2013

It was a packed house. Every seat in the room was taken. There wasn’t a vacant space left in the parking lot. The little room was filled to overflowing with concerned Lane County residents who came to hear about their electric utility company’s latest hair brained scheme to sell their upriver customers to another electric utility company for some much needed cash after making a series of poor investments in wind and solar energy projects…

Smart Meters are a Dumb Idea – Eugene Water and Electric Board Tries to Sell its McKenzie River Customers for Cash

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I received a letter the other day from my electric utility company telling me that they were exploring something called a “service territory transfer”. I thought to myself, “What the heck is that?” Exploration is something you do in outer space, and what the heck is a service territory transfer anyway? What is being transferred, to whom, and why?

Protecting or Not Protecting Oregon’s Historic Goodpasture Covered Bridge over the McKenzie River

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, March 30, 2013

Now that the repair work on the historic Goodpasture Covered Bridge is done, our Lane County Board of Commissioners should start considering how to best protect the bridge and the taxpayer’s investment in the newly renovated bridge.. However since they really didn’t spend much of the local taxpayer’s money, to fix it, they enjoy a certain amount of insulation from the cause and effect of the deliberate heavy use of the bridge by commercial logging operations.

Oregon Un-Republican Party! Is Michelle Malkin unknowingly helping to elect more RINOs in Oregon?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, February 11, 2013

They have to pay a national celebrity to come here to speak at their annual Lincoln Day dinner just in order to get Lane County Republicans to contribute enough money to keep the lights and heat on at their local Republican Party headquarters. Lured by the prospect of hobnobbing with a real media personality, some local Republicans pony up as much as 500 dollars a plate to keep their failing Party alive. I wonder if Michelle Malkin actually knows how she is being used in the effort to help elect more RINOs in Oregon…

Not One More Dime, Not One Damn Nickel, Not One Red Cent!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, February 10, 2013

Republicans aren’t ready to beat Democrats in 2014, until we first defeat RINO’s in 2013. That should be our main goal for the next year, and I can assure you that it will be a formidable one after seeing what the Republican leadership did at last year’s National Convention with their rules changes…

The Worst Little Town in America: Coburg, Oregon

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, February 5, 2013

This small town police department has been warned before by the Oregon Legislature not to use its police department to write traffic tickets along Interstate 5 just to generate money for the town coffers. In the past as much as 80% of the town’s revenue has been derived by writing these questionable traffic tickets along Interstate 5. Today the Coburg Police Department is still generating about 40% of the town’s revenue through its municipal traffic court…

Oregon’s Lame County Republican Party…- Born to Lose

Oregon Republican Party State Chairman Allen Alley must be living in his own little dream world, and so apparently is about one-half of the elected members of the Lane County Republican Party! Why do I say that? Well, for starters…

Peter DeFazio Campaign Turns Negative against Art Robinson

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Art Robinson is trying to wage a very frugal, open and honest political campaign with very limited financial resources, while his opponent Peter DeFazio has been running a very negative and expensive campaign with the help of big Wall Street corporate donations.
