Incumbent Rep. Greg Walden vs. conservative challenger Dennis Linthicum
“Greg Walden is ranked 185th by the Club for Growth. His lifetime score is 61% from Club for Growth and 55% from Heritage.
This 13-year incumbent represents the conservative eastern part of Oregon and is the only Republican from the state. Walden is one of the top members in leadership and is being groomed for a higher position. But his record is even worse than that of the average leadership member. Walden is a member of the RINO Republican Main Street Partnership, and votes along with those members, even though he hails from a conservative district. In 2011, he voted against every bill to cut spending, except for one that cut missile defense! He is a also a pro Big Labor Republican.Read More >
“O beautiful for spacious skies,
We all know the words, and we all love the sentiment in this old folk song. Our kids and grandkids probably sing this song in school plays, much as we did at their age. But even as we sing these cherished words, the beauty they represent is slipping away.Read More >
As most Oregonians know, Klamath County (indeed, most of the 2nd District) is in a season of severe drought. Add to this politically motivated backroom deals, and a radical environmentalist agenda with lots of out-of-state clout and capital, and this is a scary situation for rural Oregon.
The problem is simple - we have limited fresh water. Animals and people alike need fresh water for survival, and droughts are part of Earth's natural cycle. Therefore, we should prepare for such eventualities with dams, reservoirs and other water storage facilities, and we should share the water between all interested parties, not use the strong arm of government to pick politically-correct winners and losers.Read More >
Last week, The Baker City Herald editorial staff wrote, “Rep. Greg Walden has gotten right to the heart of the debate over managing national forest and he only needed to write a four-page bill to do it.”
However, it’s time for a reality check, because although I applaud his effort, it seems clear that Walden only threw this piece of legislative silliness onto the House floor because I am on his heels, chasing his lackluster votes. I have heard for years from hunters, farmers, ranchers, loggers and outdoorsmen worried about their forest access and concerned with the deafness of Washington bureaucrats. They tell me of their frustration in writing endless letters to Walden’s office and their local papers, along with their attempts at “public comment” debacles.Read More >
The incumbent Congressman, Greg Walden says he is a conservative. He says he is the only Republican representing Oregon's 2nd District in Washington D.C. But what does his record say?

There are a lot of theories being thrown around regarding the missing Malaysian 777. I've even had some supporters call with great, well-researched ideas about what might have happened to the plane and how our national security might be compromised because of it. These are essential concepts for our leaders and ourselves to ponder with clear eyes. In a situation like this, we can't "hope" our way out of the scary reality we live in - that there is evil in the world and terrorism is always a possibility.

Last week, I was challenged about my reasoning for supporting Israel. The question was, if I'm really dedicated to the Constitution, what is my argument for national support of Israel? Here is my response:
Today’s entire Middle East conflict needs to be addressed to help frame this discussion. The Arab-Israeli conflict is, in truth an Arab conflict with Western, particularly American, culture. Part of the dilemma that our nation faces is one of leadership and influence. Is it appropriate that American ideals get exercised throughout the world, or on a smaller scale, in the Mid-East region?Read More >
On Wednesday afternoon, broadcasting from his underground command post, Mark Levin took the airwaves on his national radio program to let everyone know how he felt concerning the GOP Leadership’s effort to assist fellow Republican David Jolly secure Florida’s 13th Congressional District Seat.
WND’s Joseph Farah spotlights GOP Dennis Linthicum as giant-slayer targeting incumbent Walden
Joseph Farah of WND makes the case why Dennis LInthicum would be a far better representative than Greg Walden.
When so-called public servants suggest the increase of Federal land management, it's usually sold to us as a great resource for our communities. We're told that we'll get wide open spaces to hunt, fish, hike, access with OHVs and use for countless other pursuits.
Unfortunately, all too often, once the government gets control of our land, it becomes closed to one or more of these activities. They close forest roads under the guise of "environmental protection", ignoring the fact that keeping these roads clear aids firefighters in the summer fire season. The bureaucrats insist that they know better than we do how to enjoy our wild places, and so they padlock the woods and force us out of land that should rightfully belong to the local community.Read More >
