‘Impeach Trump’ rally in downtown Portland draws small crowd
Updated Jun 15, 1:56 PM; Posted Jun 15, 11:25 AM

A rally calling on Congress to launch an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump drew about 200 protesters Saturday to Terry Schrunk Plaza in downtown Portland.

U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, who represents Portland in Congress, spoke at the rally across from City Hall. He said the Mueller Report did not exonerate Trump and an impeachment inquiry will give people the information they want and deserve.
On the permit request, the organizers said they expected a crowd of around 100,000 protestors.



It's over, Johnny.

Wrong Portland.
 
I know but, fun fact (not really) some of these asylum seekers thought they were going to the other one... so the joke is on us I guess.

Also LePage is a hoot... he had a book of all the out of staters caught on 95 with drugs (like heroin, fentnyl etc) lets say a lot of dark toner was needed to print these pages out.

The article I read said they needed 20 votes to be there voting and to pass it. The. I read there are 20 senate dems. If that is true then what is the problem? Besides it being a really stupid idea

They need a quarum to vote. They don't have that without the Republicans.

it's a man, baby!!!
Oregon is the same state that had a "gross receipts tax" https://taxfoundation.org/oregons-quest-gross-receipts-tax-endsfor-now/ on the ballot a couple of years back which surprisingly failed.

but in fine communist tradition, it is back. https://taxfoundation.org/oregon-gross-receipts-tax/

Some trucking companies left as soon as that went on the ballot as trucking has huge revenues but little net profit and this would kill them.

I see all of their industries that can leave packing their bags, poor lumber industry will be ravaged like a goat in Arabia.

And the libs will cheer their loss and predict (wrongly) that those jobs will be replaced by $100k/yr tech jobs
