A week of violent protests in Oregon following the election of Donald J. Trump for President resulted in over one million Dollars in damages after young Americans expressed outrage over the election of Donald Trump. An election most of them didn’t bother to vote in knowing not whether they could have made a difference. Only 34 of the 112 protesters arrested during the mayhem in Oregon actually bothered to vote.


Democrats claim Millennials are so upset with the outcome of the election they are taking to the streets to assault officers and destroy property in protest. Their party leaders are not telling them getting arrested and charged for felonies will make it very difficult for them to get any kind of employment or into a publicly supported college for the rest of their lives.


Some may be able to get their records expunged, but this takes time and costs thousands of Dollars in attorney’s fees even though the paperwork takes a few minutes to fill out. Not another lawyer joke.


Portland radio station KGW collected the names and ages of those arrested by the Portland Police Department and searched for them to state voter logs with the help of county election officials.


They found of 112 people arrested in the riots for property crimes, 39 were registered in Oregon but didn’t vote in the election. Another 35 weren’t registered to vote and four were younger than 18. That means only 30% of these arrested actually voted.


portland-anti-trump-rallyProtests erupted all across the country about a legal election for the first time in the recall of everyone now alive with Portland’s quickly became the most violent. The protests lasted six days, caused at least $1 million damages and much more when you consider the self-inflicted reputation and career damage done by the 112 young people in this sample. If the profile is typical the damage done at the behest and sponsorship of Democrat organizations and wealthy supporters like George Soros will be many millions of Dollars.


Store front windows were smashed; one police cruiser was defaced with painted profanities, damage was done to trees, fires were started. Officers were forced to defend themselves with tear gas and flash-bang grenades in response to burning projectiles thrown at them. One protester was shot by another protester in a drive-by shooting in the melee.


President Barack Obama alluded to the unnecessary nature of the protests in his first press conference since the election. “I think it’s important for us to let him make decisions. The American people will judge over the course of the next couple of years whether they like what they see,” apparently making reference to Mr. Trump in some way that not obvious or logical.


This riot should be thoroughly investigated to see whether or not an outside entity inspired or paid for this protest as it is highly unlikely so many young people who did not care enough about the election to vote in it would become so violent to commit property crimes for which arrest charge for felonies was appropriate.


It would seem the highest likelihood for a perpetrator rests with the Democrat activists groups like the ActBlue, America Votes, Blue Dog Coalition, Center for American Progress, College Democrats, Democracy for America, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Democratic Governors Association, Democratic National Committee, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democrats Abroad, Democrats for Life of America, Eleanor Roosevelt Legacy Committee, Emily’s List, High School Democrats of America, Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee,, National Conference of Democratic Mayors, National Federation of Democratic Women, National Jewish Democratic Council, New Democrat Network, Progressive Caucus, Change Campaign Committee, Progressive Democrats of America, Progressive Policy Institute, Stonewall Democrats, Stonewall Young Democrats, and Young Democrats of America.


Several of these organizations are well-funded by people like George Soros, several Hollywood and New York City entertainment and financial groups, unions including the United Auto Workers, National Education Association, American Federation of Teachers and other such leftist organizations as they rightly feel they may be put out of business as a result of Congressional Investigations into their criminality.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology.
During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean’s office. “You don’t like the way we do things here?” was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion.
After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover’s books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962.
While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series.
For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800.
Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson’s PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70’s. His “Timing Waves to Enter The Sea” article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual.
“UFO’s, The Eye and the Camera” documents his “Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed.” It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically.
Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook’s secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of “The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings,” by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method.
On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD.
When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90’s to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work.
The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the “II” machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the “star” economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves.
Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, “The Stock Surfer” was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at
