PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Gov. Kate Brown on Wednesday issued an executive order directing the state’s higher education institutions to move their curriculum to online learning, prohibiting in-person classroom interactions through April 28 to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

“I know students have worked hard this school year, and we’re doing everything we can to help them safely finish their learning. But we’re also learning more about this disease every day, and social distancing is key to keeping Oregonians safe,” Brown said in a news release. “I understand there are seniors getting ready to graduate this spring, and I want to assure them that our universities and community colleges are working hard to make sure they can get their diplomas.”

The order also limits on-campus operations to critical functions, such as dining services and dormitories, to make sure students still have a place to live and eat.  

It still directs those spaces to follow social distancing regulations.

She has violated the Contracts Clause of the Constitution which prohibits states from interfering with lawful contracts, such as leases and employment agreements. Violate the Due Process Clause of th 14th Amendment which prohibits the states from interfering with life, liberty or property without a trial at which the tate must prove fault. Violated the Takings Clause of the 5th Amendment which requires just compensation when the state meaningfully interferes with an owner's chosen lawful use of his property. Violated the protection in the 1st Amendment of the right to associate and the judicially recognized right to travel. When is she going to be held accountable?

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

Excellent points, Husky Loyalist! Korruption Kate Brownshirt (the patron and protector of Rose City ANTIFA) has ALSO violated the Logan Act in dealing with China. This will require being tried by a military tribunal where there will be NO liberal activist judges who legislate from the bench. pervert justice, and acquit the guilty. It won't matter how dishonest her attorneys are, she will be trapped like a rat and be convicted and sentenced. THAT day should become a new Oregon holiday.


Higher learning? That’s an oxymoron.

Higher learning in Oregon really means "intensified indoctrination."
