This week in media – Friday, December 9th
This is the second installment of the LP Oregon’s Week in Media by contributor Lars Jefferson.
Mr. Jefferson is kind enough to compile for us, the Libertarian Party of Oregon interesting, absurd, and relevant news and notes from near us in Oregon and “further” away. Thank you, Lars!
Keep a balanced news diet with Ground News No one has time to read all the news. Ground News identifies bias and factuality. Of course, you still have to do your part and make your own decisions, but Ground News puts it all in one place.
Want to see something here that may be of interest to Libertarians? I’m especially interested in local news from ALL AROUND Oregon. Contact me on Discord. I’m easy to find on Twitter and Facebook. Happy hunting.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The vanguard is usually college-educated people in your company’s HR department, but many educated in our system now believe nonsense. There is also an army of “useful idiots” who have been immersed in the culture of oppression Olympics, racist, sexist, phobias, and whatever the current thing is. Learn to spot it and get out of this cultural phenomenon.
