    A Maoist-style reeducation fest approaches in Seattle schools Thousands of taxpayer-supported Seattle teachers are planning to don Black Lives Matter t-shirts this week in public schools and force-feed left-wing propaganda to their students about race in an effort to draw attention to the systemic racism they imagine is embedded in the public education regime. The shirts say “Black Lives Matter” and “We Stand Together,” which is almost identical in meaning to the Hillary Clinton campaign slogan “Standing Together.”

    Well its been awhile since I reported on the mayhem in Seattle being caused by Democrats and by an organization called SHARE/WHEEL, this organization is really a cross between the mafia, the SEIU and occupy wall street.

In fact I didn't even hear about it until I learned from Steve Ferrell AKA Seataclibertarian my business associate who lives there about Share's existence.

"If there were wide open rules, I could show up and there could be thirty tents out here. What do you do with twenty-eight little eight and nine-year-old kids who just want to play sports?" According to the proposal, only encampments that pose "an imminent and likely public health or safety harm" could be considered a hazard and cleared within 48 hours.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 8/13/16 12:01 AM | Sean Higgins
    As recently as last year, the Democratic Party’s leaders thought the idea of a $15 federal minimum wage was unrealistic and even pushed back against it. That ended in July when the official party platform, bowing to pressure from organized labor and Sen. Bernie Sanders and his supporters, adopted a call for a $15 federal minimum, more than double the current rate of $7.25 an hour. […] When Seattle increased its minimum to $15 in 2014, a boost of nearly $6 an hour, it also commissioned a study of the increase’s effect by the University of Washington. A report released...

    Seattle is apparently breaking new ground by requiring landlords in the city to rent their housing units to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Officials say they’re unaware of any other U.S. city with a policy like the one the Seattle City Council approved Monday, along with other rental-housing changes. The goal is to ensure prospective renters are treated equally, according to Councilmember Lisa Herbold, who championed the policy. When landlords pick one renter among multiple qualified applicants, their own biases — conscious or unconscious — may come into play, she says. Some landlords don’t mind the policy, saying...

    aising the minimum wage is one of those wonderful-sounding ideas that, whenever tried, unfortunately never quite works the way it was promised. To its credit, the Washington Post has noticed. The Post recently highlighted a new study from a group of economists who were commissioned by the city of Seattle to look at that city's minimum wage hike from $9.96 an hour to $11.14 an hour. What they found was enlightening. To begin with, the economists said, some of the workers weren't helped at all, since their pay would have likely gone up anyway with experience and tenure on the...

According to Seattle's city website, white fragility is defined as the “inability for white people to tolerate racial stress.” The scheduled workshops, organizers say, will help to address and correct that inability, as they will provide “the perspectives and skills needed for white people to have more constructive cross-racial...

    Raise the minimum wage in Seattle they said. It will help workers they said. Well, the city did increase the minimum wage from the previous rate of $9.47 to $15, which is to be phased in by 2018. It’s now at $11, and lo and behold it has hurt workers. A study found that workers would’ve already seen an increase in wages without the hike because of the increased economic activity and more would’ve been employed. Instead, hours were cut, fewer people worked, and all of this was [predictable]: The average hourly wage for workers affected by the increase jumped...

Louis Chen, 44, pleaded guilty to reduced charges in February, wanting to avoid a trial. He was sentenced Friday by King County Superior Court Judge Bill Bowman. Chen's defense attorneys spent this week arguing that his mental problems -- and a possibly psychosis-inducing intake of cough syrup -- fueled actions he would otherwise have never committed. On those grounds, they lobbied...

    Seattle and King County officials have stopped several migrants with suitcases full of American dollars leaving the United States. All of the suspects carrying the suitcases full of cash were on welfare. KING5 reported: “ Travelers pulling suitcases full of cash started showing up at Sea-Tac Airport last year holding tickets for flights headed out of the United States. The people carrying the cash didn’t hide the fact from Customs. Just the opposite, they reported it. Anyone traveling out of the United States is required to declare any amount over $10,000 and fill out a one-page federal form. These reports...

    In an on-air interview with KVI-AM’s morning host John Carlson in Seattle on Wednesday, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump blasted the idea of so-called “sanctuary cities,” and said that as president, he would withhold funding from those cities.

    If Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton don't resonate with American voters, they always have Andrew Basiago -- a presidential candidate who is pretty sure he's going to become "either president or vice-president" between 2016 and 2028, according to information he's gathered time travelling. Cheekily calling his campaign "a time for truth," Basiago, 54, brags on his site that he "served bravely in the two secret U.S. defence projects in which time travel on Earth and voyages to Mars were first undertaken." Basiago -- who has made similar claims in the past -- also said he's helped several former presidents make...

"Eighty percent removed their belongings and cleared out." The 52 people arrested were cited for trespassing, according to the Skagit County Department of Emergency Management....
