Oregon Proposes Bill Allowing Government to Seize Private Property in an ‘Emergency’

The Oregon House of Representatives introduced House Bill 2238 that would grant the governor power that essentially amounts to martial law in the state under a declared emergency, which includes seizure of property. Potential targets for seizure could include hospitals, housing, non-compliant businesses, and perhaps even privately-owned firearms.

The bill states that when the governor declares a state of emergency, he or she may issue, amend and enforce rules and orders to: “Control, restrict, and regulate by rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibitions on shipments, price fixing, allocation or other means, the use, sale, and distribution of food, feed, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, and services” and to “Take any other action, including through the seizure, use or possession of any real or personal property, that may be necessary for the management of resources following an emergency.”

Oregon’s Democrat Governor Kate Brown defended Antifa and Black Lives Matter militants attempting to burn down a federal courthouse last summer and she recently extended Emergency Orders to remain in control. The United States of America was founded upon the protection of life, liberty, and property, and the very thought that the government could unilaterally seize one’s property ought terrify every American.

The Oregon state legislature is currently considering a bill which would allow for the Governor to seize, use, or possess any private property during a state of emergency.

HB-2238 is supposedly meant to clarify the “Governor’s authority to use property during an emergency.” There are already provisions in place to allow for limited use of private property by the state government, but this bill seeks to drastically expand these. As proposed in HB-2238,

“Whenever the Governor has declared a state of emergency, the Governor may issue, amend and enforce rules and orders to:
1) Control, restrict and regulate by rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibitions on shipments, price fixing, allocation or other means, the use, sale or distribution of food, feed, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, goods and services;
2) Prescribe and direct activities in connection with use, conservation, salvage and prevention of waste of materials, services and facilities, including, but not limited to, production, transportation, power and communication facilities training, and supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs; and
3) Take any other action, including through the seizure, use or possession of any real or personal property…”

The Oregon governor would be allowed to take part in “rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibition on shipments, price fixing, allocation…” She would also be allowed to “Prescribe and direct activities in connection with… supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs.” When it comes down to it, this bill would allow the Governor broad discretion in what to seize, when to seize it, and how to use it.

Governor Brown has continually declared a State of Emergency in order to justify her use of executive orders. In fact, she recently extended the State of Emergency again, through March of 2021. Governor Brown has also allegedly used mob-like strongarm tactics on businesses that don’t comply with her orders. Given this history, one finds it entirely possible for her to declare a state of emergency in order to take control of any private property she wishes. Potential targets could include hospitals, housing, non-compliant businesses, and perhaps even privately-owned firearms.

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

I sure as hell didn’t vote for Biden/Harris. This election was a farce and the dirty Dems are banning anyone online that says anything about election fraud. It’s NOT ONLY Oregon voted for these lunitics. Maybe their elections were fraudulent also? So, what should/could WE as USA citizens do about it?
Be careful how you point a finger.. there’s always 3 fingers pointing back at YOU.
