Keep the faith

It has been eight years since Dave Lewis and Troy Carney were found viciously murdered on the same day. A very long time for those seeking justice; a lot has happened. Some good and some very, very bad. Some call it evil.

Huey Huson was also murdered. David Grubbs' heinous case was never solved. Jessica Star Bethany perished sorrowfully and violently, as did the Criado mother and children. Their young deaths are beyond any human comprehension. Garren Beller's body has never been found. Kyron is grievously missing.

There are too many to list and no victim is ever forgotten. Murder, arson, abduction, hate crimes leave a wake of sorrow, anger, loss and dismay. It's hard to find any rationalization, because there isn't any.

Soul-sick killers take the lives of others, never comprehending the horror they do. It lasts for generations, they have blood of another on their hands. I would not wish that karmic fate on anyone.

Yet, there is hope, faith, love. For every act of evil, there are a million acts of goodness. Brave souls, justice seekers, those giving hugs turning tears to laughter, detectives and good cops, neighbors and strangers. Ultimately, people are good! Keep the faith.

Linda Lewis


Moro is a winner

Delighted to learn that Tonia Moro is running for Oregon's Senate District 3. Having shared projects, I know Tonia is experienced and willing to work hard for her constituents. Although it's difficult to fill the shoes of the beloved Alan Bates, Tonia has the smarts and heart to do so.

A Medford attorney, Tonia was elected to the RVTD board in 2015, leading the recent winning campaign for a levy to restore bus service. She is always sensitive to the public's needs: Seniors, students and non-drivers are grateful for that success. And contrary to some politicians, I am confident she will treat her constituents as adults.

In a very close race for commissioner, which she lost, Tonia got more votes in Jackson County's portion of Senate District 3 than her opponent. Tonya Moro is a winner for this race.

Exposing LBJ

A profile of Lyndon B. Johnson recently aired on KSYS Channel 8.1 for Monday and Tuesday evening Aug. 15 and 16. This whitewashed Lyndon B. Johnson, America’s worst president!

Consider the following itemized sources:

Barr McClellan's 2003 book: "Blood, Money, and Power: How LBJ Killed JFK." Also posted at YouTube.

J. Evett Haley's 1964 book: "A Texan Looks At Lyndon: A Study In Illegitimate Power."

"How Persecution of American Christians Really Began in The U.S.!" via the Constitution Party of Oregon at www.constitutionpartyoregon.net. Posted under "Liberty In The News."

"Trump to Pastors: 'Christians Have Been Silenced Like a Child' " via Pat Robertson's 700 Club confronts the 1954 Johnson Amendment, which remains blatant censorship!

"Lyndon Johnson Murdered John F. Kennedy" at YouTube.

The racist/Nazi roots of the1968 Gun Control Act LBJ exposed at www.jpfo.org.

The Vietnam War (1961-1975): Both LBJ and then Secretary of State Robert S. McNamara greatly escalated this "no win war" in Southeast Asia at a cost of 58,000 American lives!

Richard M. Nixon was no saint, but he wasn't even in the ballpark with Lyndon for political atrocities, abuses and crimes against the American people!
