What is OHA trying to hide?

January 29, 2021

What is the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) trying to hide?

In our country, we are experiencing a crisis of trust. One way or another, we get our news from the mainstream media (MSM), or state-run media, where misinformation, bias and blatant censorship shape the headlines.

Each American is required to take a hard look at multiple news sources to come up with realistic conclusions for what is really going on. Something to note with the new administration: The state-run media is already falling over backwards to report on updates of all kinds – be it fashion or policy – meaning: they will report what they are told.

COVID-19 in Oregon

What is OHA trying to hide? Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announced it will no longer provide detailed information about COVID-19 deaths. From the breaking news tweet: Since the first COVID-19 related death in Oregon on March 14, 2020, OHA has listed each of the individuals by county of residence, date of death, date of positive test or symptom onset and if the individuals had underlying conditions (but OHA never specified what the underlying conditions were). Says OHA Director Pat Allen: “…Moving forward we will share aggregated COVID-19 related deaths on OHA’s public dashboards, which are updated daily.”

  • Could it be OHA took another look at the results from the PCR tests, after the World Health organization (WHO) issued an advisory (on January 20, 2021, the day Biden was inaugurated) for labs to pay close attention to the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests that are used to detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, because of the high rates of false positives from people who are neither sick nor infectious?

As stated in an October 22, 2020 Call Out The Media blog post: The PCR tests that are being used to verify positive COVID-19 cases are FRAUDULENT. The likelihood of a false-positive is 89-94%. On the PCR tests, even the CDC says on Page 38 of this July 2020 report says: The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV infection.

Another journalist made note that OHA changed its reporting on the deceased from COVID-19 which will include omitting ages, as the state has come rightfully under fire for failing to prioritize seniors and those at highest risk from COVID-19 for the vaccine.

OHA prioritizing “equity” over risk for who can have access to the COVID-19 vaccine, (Q7 at this link): “OHA will ensure the distribution process is based on community involvement that will provide an equitable system challenging the roles of power, privilege and racism— informed by a newly assembled COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Committee (VAC).” Oregon’s Democrat politicians are empowered to determine policy decisions on “equity” over science by the actions of the new administration.

  • “Equity” is the buzzword that rules the Left, and now the country with Biden at the helm. “Equity” does not mean “equality”. It means equal outcomes for everyone, regardless of any other factor.
  • Policy decisions for Oregon and the country are boiled down to what people look like – the definition of racism – not science.
  • Identity politics are the name of the game.

From an op-ed by Dr. Maureen Hoatlin: “The limited supply of the highly efficacious COVID-19 vaccines must be distributed with urgency and equity. We must also adjust the priority as new information about the pandemic develops. 

“Recently, Oregon’s Health Authority and Gov. Kate Brown decided to de-prioritize and delay vaccinations for Oregonians 65 years and older living in the community.  As a scientist with training in RNA virology, I would like to outline the science and evidence from my perspective that supports reversing that decision. 

“If the goal is to preserve life, and also to reduce the pressure on the hospitals, then the evidence supports vaccinating people 65+ without delay.”

From a different piece: “Vaccinating Americans over the age of 74 over the same period of time as frontline essential workers will significantly delay when some of those who are at greatest risk will receive the vaccine. And second, starting to vaccinate essential workers still puts a large group with a comparatively low risk of death ahead of a large group with a significantly higher risk of death.”

Additionally, COVID-19 cases have plummeted in Oregon since the highest count in the state on December 4, 2020 (2,144) and the most recent peak on January 14, 2021 (1,137). Oregon has seen a downward trend since January 15. Keep in mind, the state had less than 100 known cases at the time of the first shutdown in March 2020. Oregon has maintained a perpetual state of lockdown to accommodate the unscientific fears of many Oregonians.

Now, Governor Brown and many Democrat governors are under pressure to reopen their states (because the Democrat president should not have to face a state-mandated failing economy). NY Gov. Cuomo plans to reopen the state in “weeks” and California Gov. Newsom has reopened restaurants, not because it’s “the right thing to do”, no, he is facing a surging recall attempt. Gov. Brown has jumped on the bandwagon and is using her powers to “allow” some businesses to reopen, even in counties still under the arbitrary title of “extreme risk”. Gyms, for instance, can have SIX people in their facilities. It’s laughable to think about how the government uses “science” to determine what is allowed. No more than 6 in a gym, but anarchists in the streets can do as they please.

Let’s get kids back in school

Shortly before Biden assumed office, Gov. Brown reversed course on her education policies during the COVID-19 event by allowing districts to decide if they want to reopen schools. Brown set a Feb. 15 goal for schools “to return students to in-person instruction, especially elementary students.”

Unfortunately, a common pattern seen throughout the country with the lockdowns is it largely depends on where students live if they will receive in-person education. States in the southern half of America, such as Florida, have kept schools open, prioritizing education of their youths. Klamath Falls school districts reopened this month. But Portland-area kids look to be out of luck.

Teachers unions across the country are using extortion by saying kids will go back to school if the teachers are vaccinated first. But, lo and behold, teachers are getting vaccinated and still the unions don’t want teachers back in schools doing their jobsFairfax, VA schools are saying kids won’t be in school until even after Sept ’21, even WITH teachers getting vaccinated first, before dying seniors.

Disturbingly, it will be best case scenario if many kids only miss ONE entire year of school as it’s looking like the COVID-19 politicization will carry well into this year and likely next… especially with the “new variants” appearing everywhere.

The damage adults are doing to our kids is not worth it. Adults are prioritizing their fear of a virus with a 99.8% survival rate over the wellbeing of children. The virus was never a threat to children, and they infrequently transmit the virus. Forget the science though, because there is already the push for vaccinating kids.

The lockdowns have been to protect adults. Adults, who are supposed to protect the children, have asked kids to make enormous sacrifices.

Nevada parents are screaming to get kids back in school as they are seeing a suicide epidemic. In one Nevada school district, 18 kids have killed themselves; 9 more than 2019, and the youngest kid was 9 years old.

Kids were already struggling with suicides and mental illness before the COVID-19 political lockdowns and then adults made policy decisions to lock them in isolation, muzzle them in public (now we need 2-3 masks because “science”… can’t make this stuff up) and rip them away from their routines because the adults were afraid of the kids for no scientific reason. This is NOT how society is supposed to work. What is the reduction in COVID-19 case numbers from the lockdowns that makes even one child suicide worth it? This isn’t a science question; it is a moral one. Entire societies can be judged on how they treat their children.

  • What else can we expect from a society that does not protect innocent children in the womb?
  • How is a baby only a baby if it’s wanted?
  • Making abortion unthinkable won’t happen overnight. It will happen by taking small steps, one at a time, and persevering.

Biden unsurprisingly doesn’t scold cowardly teachers unions. There must be countless teachers who want to get back to work to teach the kids in-person because those that are allowed to speak out have said online learning isn’t the same. The union ultimately runs the show because the union funds Democrat campaigns.

National COVID-19

Trump admin tried to split vaccines to create more doses and FDA wouldn’t do it. Biden is in office and now the FDA approved it. Why are Americans okay with letting big-money control their lives for political reasons?

Merck & Co. is ending development of its two experimental COVID-19 vaccines, after early data showed they could not produce immune responses to the virus, the company announced Monday.

Why it matters: The news leaves one of the top pharmaceutical companies out of the running for producing a vaccine, as demand for the inoculation is outstripping supply.

There is more and more emphasis on being a “world” or “global” citizen. Both the Pope and Mormon Prophet have used that terminology when directing their congregations about the vaccine. This PragerU video about the differences between the left and liberals points out how when liberals directed the films about Superman, he emphasized that he was an American superhero. But when the left took over the direction of the action figure, he dropped his American heritage and became a “global” citizen. 


Anarchists destroyed property in Tacoma, Washington.

Oregon Democrats blame Republicans for anarchist destruction, even though the state has been under Democrat control this entire time.

Twitter did nothing to stop anarchists from promoting and planning destruction in Portland and Seattle.

This sounds a lot like the catch-and-release style the Portland DA deployed with Oregon anarchists: “Federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should decline to charge some of the individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol this month — a politically loaded proposition but one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases could swamp the local courthouse.”

It has been confirmed that at least one left-wing extremist who was formerly arrested at a BLM riot was at the Jan 6 U.S. Capitol breach. Could it be more, which is what leads to this headline? Based on the fact that the FBI arrested a man who allegedly interfered in the 2016 election by posting a meme. The only reason this guy matters is because he was politically in favor of Trump. From the DOJ press release: “A Florida man was arrested this morning on charges of conspiring with others in advance of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election to use various social media platforms to disseminate misinformation designed to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote.”

It is obvious that the Democrats that now rule America are going after their political enemies. At this time, their political enemies are limited to “right wing” extremists (aka anyone who disagrees with the Left).

Additionally, failing to cite a specific threat, the Department of Homeland Security issued a national terrorism bulletin Wednesday warning of the potential for lingering violence from people motivated by anti-government sentiment after Biden’s election, suggesting the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol may embolden extremists and set the stage for additional attacks. Meanwhile, a permanent fence has been installed in front of the U.S. Capitol.

Other News

The super majority Democrats in Oregon never let a good crisis go to waste.  The title of their “priorities” page is “Transforming through Crisis”. This is a good article that decodes Governor Brown’s State of State speech to help Oregonians understand what is really going on under her fake words.

Rep. Bill Post (R-Keizer) issued a statement on how the Oregon Legislature is never NOT partisan.

Sen. Dennis Linthicum (R-Klamath Falls) on his introduction of Senate Bill 659, which will allow students to attend any school in the state so students can get the education they deserve and makeup lost learning due to school shutdowns.

“Amazon has accidentally given a good primer on why universal mail-in voting (supported by the Washington Post, which is also owned by Jeff Bezos) simply isn’t dependable. Amazon, which has always resisted having a unionized work force, filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to prevent mail-in voting in a contest with the union in Alabama.”

Oregon Congressman Cliff Bentz was selected to be on the House Natural Resources Committee.

Hollywood elite use their money and status to jump in line for COVID-19 vaccine.

This is what cancel culture looks like: A woman who helps new parents teach newborn babies how to sleep (a very important first lesson for new parents), is being cancelled. Not for anything she said, but because another “parenting influencer” with too much time on his hands decided to doxx his competitor and destroy her so that he could swoop in and take her followers like a vulture.

When Trump was president, the media glorified their roles as the “truth tellers”, but now that Biden is in, the media is very vocal in how “normal” this presidency is, to cover up its highly abnormal aspects, such as how the presidency has essentially become an “elected dictator” with the use of executive orders becoming extreme. Biden signed over 30 executive orders within his first 6 days of presidency.

Even super-majority leader Chuck Schumer has essentially declared his role and that of Congress as useless and Biden should declares climate change a “national emergency”, which will give the president more unchecked power. Why should this be necessary with both the House and Senate controlled by Democrats?

None of these “truth tellers” are reporting on the homicide epidemic in America. WSJ op-ed by Heather McDonald reports 37% murders up, 2,000 more Americans, most of them black, were killed in 2020 than 2019.

Christian Science Monitor reports that overall crime has dropped but 2020 homicide rates exceed those of the late 80s before the overall crime drop. 51 cities of various sizes saw a 35% jump in murders. 21 US cities found 610 more murders this year than last year. Gun assaults increased by 10%.

Media seeks to blame the pandemic; they never blame the policies (or the panic) of the pandemic. You cannot tell millions of people to stay home for a year without income or education and not see horrific detriment to society.  The Netherlands recently extended their lockdowns, despite falling COVID-19 cases, and the country erupted in riots.

Big Tech has made incredible amounts of money during the pandemic; while hard-working Americans have suffered.

Biden must push back against the persecution of the Uyghur minority by the Chinese government. “The Chinese government’s campaign—assisted by mass surveillance using cutting-edge electronic and biological technology—is not just a horror in its own right. It serves as a cautionary tale about tech-driven and racially profiled oppression that we must stand against.”

The Economist was pushing CCP propaganda by celebrating China’s 100yr anniversary of communism. Millions of people died in the Cultural Revolution; a fact that is glossed over in favor of glamorizing communism for an American audience.


  • Stop buying from Amazon and Walmart and other big box stores. Remember in the “old days” when people would make lists of the things they needed from the store? It is a great exercise in self control.
  • Support local. Support the Oregonians who are standing up to government tyranny. A grassroots movement is empowering small businessesto disobey the arbitrary COVID-19 orders and reopen their doors for business. “Every business is essential because every business employs people who rely on their jobs to feed their families.
  • Check out this grassroots Oregon page about timber in the state.


  • KINDNESS: Make the extra effort to smile (if possible) and say hello to strangers. Think about how kindness from a stranger makes you feel and pay it forward every time you leave home. Hellos, simple conversations, eye contact… these are small things, but they make a difference and are reminders of our shared humanity. Kindness makes us strong.
  • EDUCATION: Read about American history and your rights. Education is the best investment you can make in yourself; no one can ever take it from you. Check out the Trump administration’s 1776 Commission for American history without the damaging and inaccurate critical race theory rhetoric.
  • FOCUS: Pay attention and call out the media for the media-driven fear warped America’s COVID response.
  • LISTEN: Some great podcast episodes to tune in to: this one and this one.
  • PUT THE PHONE DOWN: Do what you can to stay off of Twitter, Facebook and Google, as they censor conservative voices while promoting the leftist agenda.

California Highway Patrol Arrests Fireman; CHP Power Trips

February 7, 2014

CHP, California Highway Patrol Arrests Fireman in San Diego County
*Cop handcuffs on-duty firefighter for not moving truck AND
*CHP, Fire Department Make Peace In Chula Vista After Testy Exchange, Arrest

Updated 7/5/14

Update as of 7/5/14;

Once again the CHP was caught in a video abusing their authority, this time with CHP officer who was a good size man who pummeled a women at least 11 times

This will be interesting what excuse the CHP and the sleazy liberal control freak Governor Brown take to wiggle out of this one!

California Highway Patrol Beats Barefoot Bag Lady (with Video)

Update as of 5/20/14;

While this update is unrelated to the issue of the rogue officer in Southern California and his treatment of the fireman, I felt a shout-out of a GOOD CHP officer was due.
On May 19 on westbound CA Hwy 44 near a rest area just past County road A21, we were driving our family truck with a travel trailer, and even though we were ourselves exceeding the 55 mph speed limit for those towing (about 58-60 mph), we were quickly gathering vehicles behind us after the A21 junction.
A CHP officer passed us going eastbound, shortly there after a PU truck behind us decided to make an unsafe pass where the road ahead could not be clearly seen due to a crest in the hill. Almost immediately a car crested this hill and I slammed on my brakes so that the trcuk could swerve back into the westbound lane just narrowly missing a head on collision with the car going eastbound.

Somehow the CHP officer witnessed this in his rearview mirror even though he was well past this incident and then swung around, came westbound, and then pulled over the reckless driver.
I have to say we need more “on the ball” officers like him/her to keep our highways safe.
This by the way was the second close call with a reckless driver that day as we had a similar incident (albeit not quite as close) on US 395.

This is also why I am a big advocate of traffic officers “mixing it up in traffic” rather than simply pulled off to the side looking for persons that might be exceeding the speed limit on a downgrade

Update as of 3/27/14;

As of Feb. 25, no discipline such as suspension has been handed down to Officer Sergio Flores of the CHP, further adding credibility to the accusations that the CHP has major issues with rogue officers and the discipline there of.
As well since the buck stops at the top, this does not speak well of the CHP Commissioner (Scott Dennis) or even Governor Browns’ office who when I contacted his office, clearly blew this issue off.

As of March 25, firefighter Jacob Gregoire is filing a lawsuit in an attempt to fix known issues with the CHP. As of March 25, the CHP has still attempted to sweep under the rug issues, in particular with alleged rogue officer Sergio Flores, as well as other similar incidences of corruption within the CHP, which unfortunately has an alleged long history of corruption that gives a bad name to officers everywhere.

Firefighter files a claim against CHP

In a March 27 phone call to the CHP, the officer at the Sacramento CHP headquarters (Officer Thomas) actually defended Officer Sergio Flores based on “chain of command”, which means (as explained to me) that if a CHP officer tells anyone to do something in their jurisdiction, including a firefighter, they MUST do it.
So in other words if a CHP officers you to jump off a bridge, you must do this!!

Sorry officer Thomas, this is no defense of asking the firefighter to endanger himself or others he is attempting to help.

Sadly, my guess is Officer Flores and Thomas were school yard bullies in their younger years who could not get enough of it and are still continuing this practice into adulthood, except now they have a badge!

Worse, after filing a complaint about Officer Thomas’ condescending attitude with me and others who call in to the Sacramento office including his bizarre reasoning, Governor Browns office found no problem with this officers behavior. This shows the scum that Gov. Brown is, yet you baffoons in California voted for Governor Moonbeam!!

From the Yahoo News Story:
“Good thing it was caught on camera, or it would be tough to believe: A California Highway Patrol officer put an on-duty Chula Vista firefighter in handcuffs for refusing to move his truck while tending to victims of a car crash.

As he was being handcuffed on the side of the 805 Freeway near Orange County, the firefighter, 12-year veteran Jacob Gregoire, told reporters who had gathered, “I just want to let you all know he’s arresting me.”

Later, according to CBS News 8, Gregoire told the arresting officer, whose name has not been released, “It’s unbelievable you guys have to treat us like this. We are trying to help you guys.”

The officer (Sergio Flores) replied, “We asked you to clear the road, you said ‘No.’ You are being arrested for not moving.”

Gregoire was reportedly detained in the back of a highway patrol car for several minutes before being released. He was not charged.

Chula Vista Fire Chief Dave Hanneman told CBS, “To detain one of our firefighters in the middle of an incident is ridiculous.”

In a statement, Hanneman praised the firefighters for doing what they were trained to do — protecting the scene of an accident with their trucks.”

Sadly this is NOT an aberration as the CHP and Governor Brown’s office would have you believe!!

This is not even the first time this has happened to a fireman in California (it happened in Santa Barbara County a few years before). I know of other police agencies such as LA County Sheriff Deputies who have told me of similar lack of respect of others and extreme power trips that in the end make all law enforcement look bad.

But more importantly, this is VERY TYPICAL of the California Highway Patrol toward everyday citizens.
I lived in California for 4 decades until 2002 and I can give many stories of there abusive bully type behavior and their Commanding Officers standing behind such action.
I can also state since living in Oregon, the Oregon State Troupers are vastly better with very few rogue officers and even then their COs will take the issue of rogue officers seriously, unlike the CHP.

HERE ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES FROM MY EXPERIENCE (Including the many business trips and family trips taken down to California since moving):

  • While traveling on a family trip in our RV, a large semi-gravel truck pulled out from a turn out directly in our path; there was no time to brake, so instead we crossed the yellow line about 3-4 feet (normally no passing). A CHP coming the other direction witnessed this and then turned around. To our family’s amazement, he did not pull over the truck for this reckless driving, rather us.
    Sadly his CO called it a “good write”
  • While on a business trip to So. Calif. on Interstate 5, I witnesses another large truck passing others very dangerously, forcing SEVERAL cars in the fast lane into the center median.
    I called 911 and gave my exact location. I followed this truck (which was not easy since he was driving fast and recklacy) for 45 MINUTES, only to NEVER see a CHP respond
  • Again on a business trip on Interstate 5, I witnesses a several CHP cars pulled to the side, forcing traffic to quickly and dangerously change lanes so as to obey the “Move Over” law. These CHPs were clearly abusing this law as as soon as a driver in front of me could not move over because of another vehicle in the left lane, he was immediately pulled over by another CHP who was working in teams.
    Reporting this went no where.
  • I have MANY times witnessed CHP cars parked behind median barriers on down grades such as the one coming down to Redding southbound on I5 and nabbing vehicles for going just 5-10 mph over the speed limit, mean while on these same trips I have noticed cars drivingg as though possibly DUI.
    However since the available CHP units are instead looking for the “easy write” they are missing these real safety hazards because they are not “mixing it up in traffic”

  • Even in my younger years, I still remember an incidence with my father (who was a highly educated electronics engineer with Honeywell). We were on a family vacation with my father pulling a tent trailer; he went to pass a slower vehicle in the second lane from the right but in the CHP officer’s opinion did not get back to the right lane fast enough. I am not questioning whether this officer was right or wrong, rather what stuck in my memory was how this officer belittled my Dad and quite purposefully was using his authority to make my Dad look bad in front of his children/family—- I will never forget this!!!

If you are tired of the bad reputation the California Highway Patrols gives to many other GOOD police officers, sheriff deputies, etc, call this number and call it again until this out of control agency gets the message!!!
1-800-TELL-CHP (1-800-835-5247) or 916-843-3000.

Fax: (916) 558-3160

Also boycott tourism/travel in California if at all possible.

Please see the other examples from others gleaned from several comments made as per the recent CHP bully incidence in San Diego

CHP has always had a bad reputation among Law Enforcement agencies in Calif. as being unprofessional and arrogant. The TV show “Chips” gave them big egos.

Having lived in CA, I know this not at all unusual. I once tried to inform a CHP officer about an overturned car I had passed. He was in the process of writing a traffic ticket. Without giving me the opportunity to say one word, he told me to leave
immediately or face arrest. I guess the ticket he was writing was more important than a possibly fatal rollover. They were known throughout the state as a bunch of arrogant prima donnas. This illustrates that this hasn’t changed.

*John Retired:
Having just retired from a fire dept., I would never allow myself to be handcuffed while in the performance of my duties. The captain shoud have come to his aide and told him to ignore the officer and get back to work. I hope the brain dead CHP officer loses his job for doing what he did. Only your captain or a higher ranking officer of your department has any authority over your while you are on duty.

What a disgrace to the other CHP officers that they have this type of rogue officer amongst them.

This is NOT an isolated incident. I am retired Los Angeles county sheriff (retired 10 years ago) and our guys were chasing two robbery suspects on Pacific Coast Highway (many years ago) and at gun point we forced the suspects to stop and we had them surrounded at gun point to get them out of the car. The CHP interfered with us telling us to move our patrol cars out of the traffic lanes. All they care about is traffic and traffic tickets. I told him not to interfere and go control approaching traffic. He was adamant we move our cars, and we did not until we had our suspects in custody. He could have -aused one of us to drop our guards and been shot by the suspects. Nothing happened over this incident, but the CHP should have been suspended and retrained. This CHP officer arresting the fireman should be reprimanded and transferred and criminal charges brought against him for interring with emergency crews at an emergency.

*Diehard Skeptic
I can’t imagine what was going through this cop’s head! Could he not see the situation? Use some common sense, guy. The fire truck was positioned to protect the scene. I have seen that done many times. It makes sense to do it, giving security to the scene and to the fire fighters and police doing their jobs in safety behind it. Yes, it blocked lanes of traffic, but it was supposed to. This is like a meter maid putting a ticket on a fire truck for parking next to a fire hydrant.

I have seen videos like this. Working the scene in a Highway or Freeway is dangerous. As a firefighter we train to use the trucks as a safety barrior. Flashy lights do attract people to a scene, and when they are going 60mph +; I’d rather have a large fire truck, with a full tank of water protecting me, than road signs saying slow down to 55mph and a guy with a stop / slow sign. At least the truck slows the people down.

The CHP has a looong history of being badge heavy. But this is way over the top. I suspect the officer pictured will be spending some quality time driving a desk…Where he won’t be needing those cuffs.


*Grants Pass Police; Dishonesty, Alleged Corruption
This is another law enforcement agency that needs to do some serious “soul searching” and where those who regulate the agency (the Grants Pass City Council & Mayor) need to step up and show some badly needed integrity and fix these well known issues

*DHS/ DCS/ CPS/DCFS Abuse of Authority Problems In particular Oregon DHS
Another agency well know for their abuse of power and the failure of those who can fix these problems to act

On a Lighter Note:
*What to Consider When Choosing Your Aquarium LED Lights
An excellent article written by a friend in my field of business since 1978.
