    The 16-year-old boy who was shot dead by CHOP security in Seattle was homeless and had just carjacked a Jeep when he was told by a friend to drive to the cop-free zone 'for safety', can reveal. Antonio Mays Jr died in a hail of bullets in the early hours of Monday morning and his passenger, a 14-year-old, was critically injured after armed security guards fired on their white Jeep Cherokee, which crashed into the barriers of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) security zone. Ciara Walker, 25, described the two boys as her 'street brothers' and said Mays...

    It’s been fascinating – and not in a good way – to see how the mainstream media and Democratic “leaders” like Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan continue to declare that the CHAZ or CHOP or whatever the hell it is called is a “peaceful” place with a “block party atmosphere.” Some in the media have likened it to a “street festival“, while Durkan recently predicted the occupied zone could very well turn into a “summer of love.” The reality on the ground is actually much different than these gaslighters would like for people to think it is. As my RedState colleagues...

    Democrat Mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan has quite the history with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group proven by a federal judge to have ties to HAMAS, labeled a terror organization in the United Arab Emirates, and whom works closely with self-promoting anti-Semite and vocal supporter of Sharia Law, Linda Sarsour. Sarsour has publicly praised Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan, once going as far as to invoke jihad on President Trump and the United States as a whole in 2017. “I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts...

    Seattle's mayor said that "autonomous zone" protesters are patriots, and not, as President Donald Trump called them, "domestic terrorists." Since Monday, protesters have occupied a section of the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood after clashing with police during a Black Lives Matter demonstration. "Demanding we do better as a society and provide true equity for communities of color is not terrorism — it is patriotism," Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted. Trump on Thursday tweeted that the protesters were "ugly Anarchists" who "must be stopped IMMEDIATELY." Seattle's mayor scolded President Donald Donald Trump for calling protesters occupying the city's autonomous zone "domestic terrorists,"...

    We The Governed ^ | 05/27/2020 | Glen Morgan
    It is no secret that Washington State Governor Inslee is deeply offended by the fact that so many Washingtonians refuse to blindly obey his emergency proclamations. He has complained about his “insubordinate” subjects to the tame media. Reportedly, he has been enraged when local sheriffs have refused to arrest anyone who defy his random orders and dictates (approved by no elected body in this state), and this is why the Snohomish County Sheriff is facing a recall election effort mostly from Inslee supporters right now. Some observers are speculating that this move by Inslee’s politicized followers at L&I is an...

    Washington State Governor Inslee read the script prepared by his staff last week on Wednesday May 12, 2020 during his “press” conference announcement. While Inslee will be the face of the state’s virus policies, few believe he actually acquires these goofy ideas on his own. Every politician is controlled by advisors, and Jay Inslee is no exception. However, there must be a sliver of doubt in Inslee’s inner circle, somewhere, that he is not just making a major, catastrophic mistake, but that he is approaching the policy cliff and plans stepping off into the policy abyss – unless someone changes...

    How one-party rule came to Washington state King County Republicans use to dominate the suburbs. That era is over. by Chris Vance / May 8, 2020 Illustration of suburbs With Republicans failing to win elections in the King County suburbs, politics in Washington state is increasingly a fight between mainstream and progressive Democrats, writes Chris Vance. The forces changing American politics – from Trumpism, to democratic socialism, to a global pandemic — are truly tectonic. I recently argued that 2020 will be a realigning election that will usher in a new party system, the seventh in our nation’s history. Essentially,...

    OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee announced Friday he would extend Washington’s stay-home order through May 31, but is seeking ways for some businesses to open before then, as he and state officials try to keep the new coronavirus from roaring back. “If we stick together for a while longer, we don’t lose the gains we’ve already made,” Inslee said, acknowledging that restrictions on daily life have been challenging for many Washingtonians. “It’s so frustrating, we don’t want to do this twice.” Inslee’s announcement comes as he and others try to chart a delicate course between a deadly virus that has...

    Joshua Freed, a Republican candidate for governor, filed a lawsuit Wednesday over restrictions placed on religious gatherings under Washington’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle, seeks an emergency injunction to lift a portion of Governor Jay Inslee’s March 23 order that bans “all public and private gatherings and multi-person activities for social, spiritual and recreational purposes, regardless of the number of people involved, except as specifically identified herein.” Freed said restricting religious gatherings violates the Constitution. “You can’t publicly, privately, indoors, outdoors go have a time of prayer with somebody who might...

    EVERETT, Wash. -- Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney has become the latest sheriff in Washington to voice his displeasure at the state's current "Stay at Home" orders amid the COVID-19 outbreak and reiterated his vow not to enforce it. Fortney took to Facebook late Monday night in a several-paragraph statement questioning Gov. Jay Inslee's plans amid what Fortney called were "drastic measures as the suspension of constitutional rights." While acknowledging that the COVID-19 outbreak is "a very serious issue and the appropriate precautions need to be taken to protect our most vulnerable populations," Fortney stated he's concerned about small businesses...
