Local Government steps up, to provide remedy and relief
Josephine County Commissioners passed resolution 2020-039
last week to provide a level of protection to resident business owners, after Oregon Governor Kate Brown delegated authority to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission to enforce executive orders, in what started, as a two week freeze. The resolution is to stand as prima facie
evidence of good faith, in the event a business is cited for being open, and called to appear before an administrative hearing. The County also created a letter of good faith for business owners to use in an administrative hearing, should they need it.
In Governor Brown's new proposal for the 2021-2023 budget given to the Oregon Legislature, very little is slated for appropriation to small business owner's, who have arguably, been hit hardest since lockdowns began. Instead, Brown's proposed budget focuses on expanding infrastructure, public works, and bigger government, which equals large union contracts. Conversely, the budget for helping the private sector i.e landlords, rental owners, and small business owner's is tiny in relation, and focused on equity, for minority owned or run businesses. Whatever the intentions for lockdowns, the outcome is shaping up to be a massive redistribution of power and wealth away from the already shrinking middle, and lower classes. Brown's budget proposal far exceeds projected revenue for the State of Oregon,heavily reliant upon spending Federal dollars, yet to be agreed upon, or even passed by Congress.
Oregonians are losing faith in Government, as despair has often turned to ire, and unrest. However, the news of Josephine County's resolution, has created a new wave of hope through the State. Now, Another County has stepped up, proposing a similar resolution this week. The new Yamhill County resolution shares the same goal of providing a level of protection to businesses and a message of hope.
The Yamhill County resolution
differs only slightly from the Josephine County Resolution, and addresses flawed PCR tests
being used to justify business closures. It also addresses the death certificate rule change implemented March 24th via a new ICD code adapted by the National Vital Statistics System
, which records presumptive COVID-19 deaths with confirmed cases, diagnosed with the same flawed PCR test. The new Yamhill Resolution is accompanied by a packet of information, including studies, court rulings, and even a recent executive order by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, calling for the full disclosure of PCR cycle thresholds
, and false negative and positive test numbers to be disclosed immediately.
Another very important piece of information in the supporting documents, comes from Oregon's own Douglas County Health's Dr. Dannenhoffer, who confirms that the PCR test being used in Oregon
is made by manufacturer Thermo Fisher, and using a 39-40 PCR cycle Threshold. To put this into perspective Dr. Fauci has stated "the PCR COVID test is useless and misleading when the test is run at 35 cycles or higher."
Yamhill County Commissioner, and Vice-Chair Mary Starrett, stated in the meeting that she's not the only commissioner receiving daily correspondence, and pleadings for help. In a phone call after the meeting, Commissioner Starrett shares with Northwest Observer, exactly what she's been reading from county residents "People are going broke as their businesses bleed out. Their kids are losing their mooring, failing in what's left of their schools, and they're ending their lives. We're losing people to drug overdoses and those in recovery are relapsing. Sadly, our elders are slowly dying from loneliness and despair, despite studies showing that lockdowns don't work! Meanwhile routine screenings and medical care is being placed on hold, or pushed out, further jeopardizing the health and well being of our community. Corporate food chains are open on every street corner, while the neighborhood restaurants we love are forced out of business. These arbitrary shutdowns have no basis in fact."
The Yamhill County Resolution has been set aside until next week, to allow time for all Commissioners to properly read through the document packet, and a representative of the Oregon Health Authority can be present. Dr. Henry Ealy was reported to have been waiting on hold, to support the resolution. Dr. Ealy is the lead author and researcher of a peer reviewed study addressing the critical changes to the death certificate reporting titled "Ethics in Science and Technology
Dr. Henry Ealy tells Northwest Observer he will be back next week to weigh in, and present the findings of his research team.
Before the meeting was adjourned Yamhill County had already received 21 comments, and emails regarding the resolution. For more information on either resolution, the packet of supporting documents, or to watch the live hearings, all information can be found on the individual County Website.
