Looking for a story of how dishonest progressive politicians are?

Well, don’t look any further than Oregon Governor Kate Brown. You know the state with collapsing Portland in it.

A hyper-leftist, anti-cop, and pro shutdown elitist who has been enjoying/abusing the “police state powers” activated to deal with the “virus”.

An early proponent of the national shutdown, stay at home orders and implementing a slow re-opening. With the massive increase in testing nationwide, Oregon too recently saw a small spike in infections, not deaths.

Mask, Mask, make sure to wear your mask, and keep social distancing guidelines, has been her mantra.

Just like Mayor De Blasio, and Governor Gavin Newsome, Governor Brown has been video recorded and had pictures taken of not sheltering in, when mandatory, attending a gathering with more than the approved numbers of people attending, and while not wearing a mask at all or wearing them incorrectly in public.

As reported by PJ Media, On July 2nd, Governor Brown denounced four state troopers who were seen on video without face masks in a coffee shop, saying such behavior was “inexcusable.”

Under an order from Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, people statewide are required to wear a face-covering in indoor public spaces to slow the mounting spread of the coronavirus.

Gov. Kate Brown then issued the new order in mid-July requiring masks outside unless social-distancing and minimum six-foot distances could be maintained.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D-Portland) and her security detail appear to have violated Brown’s own mask mandate, according to a post that has gone viral on Facebook. In addition, a member of that security detail, an Oregon state trooper, has yet to be publicly recognized for rescuing a teenage girl from drowning.

A witness to the incident last Sunday is now demanding that the trooper be awarded a medal from the Oregon State Police, but so far Brown has not publicly acknowledged the heroic act by the police officer.

In an interview with PJ Media, the witness, a woman named Rebekah (she asked us not to include her last name out of fear of retaliation from Gov. Brown) described the scene.

Rebekah brought her kids to a riverside park on a hot summer day to go swimming. She happened upon Kate Brown and her Oregon State Police security detail on a trail next to the park in Marion County. None were wearing masks, despite a mid-July executive order requiring masks outdoors, not just inside public buildings.

Rebekah told PJM:

We had just gotten there. We hadn’t even put our stuff down on the ground. As we walk down the trail a guy was screaming, “help help, do you have a rope?” My friend went to grab a stick and this girl was drowning. All I thought was, “Oh my God, I’m not going to let these kids watch somebody die today, right?”

I gathered them up and I ran them up to the trail and I ran to go get help because the teenager that was drowning was three times my size. So I gathered up all the kids and we ran right up the trail. Well, the first people that we came across was a group of six people and I said, “Help, somebody’s drowning. Somebody’s drowning, run run!”

And these two men jet past me and ran down to the water. Then this lady who I’m standing next to on the trail says, “Don’t worry, they are two state troopers.” And I said, “Oh, praise God. Thank the Lord!” And so I ran back down knowing that he knew what he was doing.

Rebekah said she had no idea at first that it was Kate Brown and her security detail she was seeing, but when she regained her composure, she realized who it was. “As soon as [the trooper] got her to shore,” Rebekah said, “he got out of the water soaking wet, and I ran right up to him and I said ‘God bless you. Thank you so much for your service.’”

At that point, Rebekah said she felt compelled to say something to the governor.

They were doing their own thing, and in my mind, I’m going, you go to every single Open Up Oregon rally, Let them Play rally, Back the Blue rally We’ve been protesting to let our kids play sports and go to school.

With the chaos in the streets around Portland and Eugene, there’s no law and order. She gets police protection as we clearly saw but yet we are on her own while she’s trying to defund the police. So what was going through my mind was, when are you ever going to see Kate Brown and speak your mind?

My two daughters were side by side with me at the Capitol, and my one daughter made a sign that said, “Kate Brown you can take away my school, you can take away my sports, but you will never take away my freedom.”

So how does this get to you? Politicians pass directives, some which are destroying people’s lives and businesses, while not following the rules themselves.

To make this story even worse is when one of her protectors, saves a young girl from drowning, but the Governor does award the officer for bravery because it would further expose her hypocrisy of her breaking her own mandated mask rules.

Most reasonable people would vote hypocrites like Kate Brown out of office, but we are talking about Oregon here, and only half the population falls into this reasonable category.

  • She is a Hypocrite just like all the other Mayors and Governors who give out orders but don’t do it for themselves!!!

  • But of course, this is what the Democrats are all about!! Handing out rules they won’t follow!! Please eliminate the Democrats!!!

    • That’s because dems don’t represent their constituents; they rule over them. Rulers don’t have to obey their own rules. That’s for the peasants.

  • Governor Brown has used this COVID virus to become a dictator of the state of Oregon! One example is her pushing the Cap and Trade Bill into law without congress or voter approval. Yes it’s hard to understand that the slightly bigger 50% majority who mostly reside in Portland, Eugene and Salem make our state liberal. I reside in Yamhill county a short distance away where more than three out of four people l know and meet disapprove of her governing and enacted laws😲 Oregon is still a great state to live in and I must remain optimistic for my children and grandchildren so I pray to God for a good future for them. There are many good kind people living here😊

  • Your article isn’t written correctly. One you have no official dates to back it up. Two public record has no female drowning in that county in Oregon. There were no efforts by state troopers in that county in Oregon. If your gonna write an article back up it with official public statements. You can’t, because this never happened. There was no female almost drowning in Marion County in Oregon. Prove there was by researching public record. This is partly what you wrote, Rebekah brought her kids to a riverside park on a hot summer day to go swimming.
    First no official date on that hot summer day. What date was it? Do you think readers are that stupid?

    She happened upon Kate Brown and her Oregon State Police security detail on a trail next to the park in Marion County.
    What day was this?

    There was no official female teenage drowning or almost drowning in that county. If there was there would be actual news articles, plus public record by the state Oregon police. There isn’t any..

    You need to either retract this, or do further investigating.

    My challenge to people and the author of this article , I want people who comment on here to investigate this story you wrote, and find any public record of a female who drowned or almost drowned in Marion County Oregon this year when covid 19 rules were in place. I am a Republican and your making us look like liars. News articles, police statements on Facebook page, anything that is local news that sits on tv, local newspapers in Oregon.

    • How do we truly know that the mainstream media is 1 -not covering these kinds of stories. (I’m hearing things from real people and it’s not being reported on properly if at all). And 2- If the Governor didn’t want people to know about this incident do you really think she doesn’t have the power to make it appear as if it never happened…?! Pretty sure she could get away with nothing at all being recorded in any public records. We don’t know for sure. These days it’s hard to know anything is true or not. We just have to look at the information, and decide what we think is true or not. Fact checking only gets you so far due to the fact that we are in an age where corrupt people and businesses do bidding of powerful people. That’s probably always been the case. Just now with the internet it’s far easier to manufacture info & stories and only harder & harder to tell what’s truth and what is not. So I do see your point, but we don’t know 100% that her story isn’t true. That’s what I think…my opinion is only my opinion and you’re of course entitled to yours. I’m just saying we just DON’T KNOW.

  • When will the peasants realize, the rules dictated by the liberal elite do not, nor are they ever intended to apply to them. Just their subjects.

  • Just another pos democratic puppet. They all do what their told under threat from Nancy they will never work in the party again. Stand up if you care about the people of America. Switch to independent or Republican. If. Not your a chicken shit follower, . Major part of the problem
    And stop refunding the police. Step up, grow a pair , and do what’s right. Or GOD will give you what you deserve.
