Oregon, My Oregon

Hey, we have a double today from the land where people don't tan, they rust. First from YaHoo!  An Oregon woman was duped into thinking she was training to be a DEA agent for almost a year, officials say

A woman in Oregon who believed that she was training to be a Drug Enforcement Administration agent realized she had been tricked for a year by a man pretending to be her supervisor, according to a criminal complaint seen by Insider.

Robert Edward Golden, 41, is accused by Portland officials of impersonating a DEA special agent, using false credentials to gain information from residents and installing red-and-blue emergency lighting in his car to navigate traffic.

He also kept a tactical vest affixed with "DEA Police" patches, two body-armor-plate carriers, handcuffs, badges, and an AR-15 style rifle which turned out to be a BB gun, an affidavit from a DEA special agent, Morgan T. Barr, said.

Authorities discovered and detained the pair on February 1, after a police sergeant noticed one of the vests in the open trunk of Golden's car and approached them.

The officer asked Golden if he was a sworn federal agent, and Golden said that he and his "trainee" were both "Feds" working in Portland. Golden then told the woman to show the officer her fake badge, according to the complaint.

The pair were transferred that night to DEA investigators, and Golden then admitted the credentials were fake, according to the affidavit. This time, he claimed he and the woman were "into cosplay" and had the equipment and badges because it provided them with "protection," officials said.

Golden also said he had previously helped break up a fight by shouting, "Police!" and holding up his badge like an officer, per the document.

According to the affidavit, the unidentified "trainee," who wasn't charged, told authorities that Golden had given her a DEA badge and photo ID and said she'd been in training for a year while attending school for criminal justice.
Sound like BS to me. 

From Vox Populi, Why the GOP Must Die
In case you’re unsure why a) I am not a Republican, b) why the Republican Party is part of the problem and not the solution, c) why the Republican Party does not merit your support, and d) why the Republican Party has to die, well, sometimes a picture really is worth more than 1,000 words. Talk about gay pedoface on steroids!

The fact that the Republican Party decided to endorse it as a candidate for governor rather than immediately killing it with fire tells you everything you need to know about the party.

But does he support Antifa?
