  • AOC, Ilhan Omar tweet ‘expand the court’ after Barrett confirmation

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for more seats to be added to the Supreme Court — shortly after Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as the newest justice on the bench Monday evening. “Expand the court,” the Bronx-born congresswoman wrote on Twitter. Her message was re-tweeted by fellow “squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). “Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices,” Omar added. “By expanding the court we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people.”
  • Rethinking the Seattle "CHOP" Takings Case. Property owners are suing the city for helping far-left activists seize control of their property

    Throughout much of June 2020, far-left activists exercised control over a part of Seattle that came to be known as the "Capitol Hill Organized Protest Zone" (CHOP). City officials allowed the activists to control the 16-block area in the wake of clashes with police arising from protests triggered by the brutal killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minnesota. During the three week period of CHOP "autonomy" (which was finally ended when the mayor ordered police to clear the area on July 1), there was extensive violence and property damage in the area. Property owners have sued the city,...

That doesn’t mean we can’t occasionally slide a knife between some asshole’s ribs. Fellow Microsoft employees, including Program Manager Alex Dupler, appeared to endorse Freeman’s tweet, asking “where do I sign up?”

    “As I began leaving the cult, I began writing of my experiences on Facebook. This was a mistake. My error was thinking that my social capital, my good record, would carry weight and that people would listen to my warnings. I was wrong, I keep using that word as well. If anything, my insider status was more of a threat. My therapist has not been able to help me. I have found solidarity with ex-Mormons. In one year, I have lost 90% of my community in Olympia. I have been shunned by activists, comedians and gamers. I have never had...

    After a certain point it becomes wanton cruelty to keep dunking on California’s slow motion suicide, but some stories are too good to pass unremarked. Today’s Wall Street Journal reports that rocker Gene Simmons is KISS-ing California goodbye and moving to no-income tax Washington state, and in high KISS-my-ass style: [Simmons] is now putting the property, which they later redeveloped into a sprawling European-style mansion, on the market for $22 million. The reason: They are moving to a 24-acre estate in Washington, near Mount Rainier, to escape the tax burden of living in California, Mr. Simmons said.“California and Beverly...

    Murder hornets from the first nest discovered on US soil have been successfully sucked out of a tree cavity and placed on ice after experts located the nest in Washington state this week by attaching radio trackers to the bugs. The so-called murder hornets, known for their potentially fatal sting to humans and their ability to wipe out an entire bee hive in a matter of hours, were vacuumed out of the tree into a long plastic tube before being killed, marking the culmination of a complex removal process Saturday morning.

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday helped host an online event aimed at encouraging young people to vote that was organized by an activist who said last year that “America deserved 9/11.” The New York Democrat congresswoman, 31, spoke at the beginning of the virtual event, which was streamed on Twitch, and announced an “amazing lineup” of gamers to play “Among Us,” a newly popular video game. Hasan Piker, a vlogger who last year came under fire for saying “America deserved 9/11,” organized the event, which featured popular Twitch streamers along with Ocasio-Cortez and fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who herself has...

    Newsweek ^ | 10/17/20 | DANIEL VILLARREAL
    Friday, a federal district court judge allowed a lawsuit brought by 21 businesses against the city of Seattle to proceed, despite the city's attempt to have it dismissed. The lawsuit accuses the city of harming local business owners by allowing the existence of Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), a self-declared autonomous zone that was established and occupied by racial justice protestors from June 8 to July 1. The occupied zone blocked all car traffic, reducing the businesses' access to customers, vendors and revenue, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit further alleges that city police largely neglected the zone, allowing protesters and...

    Claims from users on the anonymous messageboard 4Chan went viral on Saturday evening, as people said they discovered a way that ballots can be cancelled online in Washington — and that an Oregon voter’s registration can be changed, using just the voter’s name and date of birth. The claims were that they uncovered a vulnerability that could make way for large scale systemic voter fraud.Their exploit allegedly worked to change registration for voters who are in the military, overseas or disabled. The claims rapidly went viral across social media — but some (or all) of the assertions making their way...

    WASHINGTON — The election is still 18 days away but Democrats are already drawing battle lines over what a Biden administration ought to look like. Left-wing House members including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Katie Porter, Ayanna Pressley, Raúl Grijalva and candidate Jamaal Bowman along with 39 progressive groups signed a letter, obtained by POLITICO, arguing that no C-suite level corporate executives or corporate lobbyists ought to have Senate-confirmed positions in a Biden administration. “One of the most important lessons of the Trump administration is the need to stop putting corporate officers and lobbyists in charge of our government,” they wrote. “As...

    The Portland murder suspect who was killed in a police-involved shooting in September allegedly had his hand on a gun in his pocket when law enforcement agents fired 37 bullets and fatally struck him, officials have announced. Michael Forest Reinoehl exited an apartment near Lacey, Wash., shortly before 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 carrying two bags and walked to a car parked nearby, according to a police update in the investigation, released Wednesday by Thurston County Sheriff’s Lt. Ray Brady. That same day, it was revealed that Reinoehl would be charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Aaron...

    Democrat mayors and city councils have surrendered America’s largest cities to “domestic terrorists,” said Howard Safir, former New York City police commissioner and fire commissioner, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Safir said, “It’s the Democratic cities who have basically ceded their cities to what got called ‘peaceful protesters’ but are really people who are vandals and looters, and in some cases, not only assault people but are murderers.” Safir added, “You look at Seattle, you look at Minneapolis, you look at Chicago, and places like that where basically they have...

    Washington’s Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously rejected a recall effort against Seattle Mayor Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan over her handling of widespread summer protests. The recall effort, led by six Seattle residents, blames the mayor for the Seattle Police Department’s indiscriminate use of tear gas during weeks of protests against racial injustice and police brutality sparked by the police custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

    A unanimous Washington State Supreme Court tossed out the effort to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, ruling that the accusations against her did not rise to the level that would allow a citizen initiative to remove her from office. The decision kills the push to recall the mayor and means that, barring unforeseen circumstances, voters in 2021 will have the final say on Durkan’s job performance, should she choose to run for a second term. “The allegations in this case are deeply troubling and our review requires that we treat the factual allegations as true,” the court wrote in a...

    Governor Jay Inslee finally loosened some of his inconsistent and non-sensical coronavirus restrictions. Before you celebrate, know this brazen announcement is transparently self-serving. In a Tuesday afternoon press conference, one day before the only gubernatorial debate he’d agree to, Inslee announced he’d relax a handful of restrictions so businesses like restaurants and movie theaters could reopen at either greater capacity or under less onerous mandates.

    On September 17, a King County Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of four articles of recall brought against Seattle’s socialist city councilmember Kshama Sawant. The recall campaign represents an attempt by the right wing and big business to overturn Kshama’s re-election last year and drive socialist politics out of Seattle City Hall. **SNIP** While the recall petition was officially filed by an individual resident of Kshama’s district, the language in it is notably all but identical to a public statement from Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan calling for the City Council to expel Kshama. **SNIP** This recall effort is above...

    Fox 9 did a little piece defending Ilhan Omar's diabolical ballot harvesting scheme in Minneapolis and attacking James O’Keefe. In this video O’Keefe fires back at Fox 9 and let it rip at full barrel. O’Keefe systematically dismantles the illegal ballot harvesting defenders at Fox 9 in Minneapolis and takes them apart. Only 9 minutes long. Some Fox stations have gone full retard and are now full members of the massive fake news propaganda and disinformation machine to steal the elections from Trump and the GOP in November. Be warned accordingly.
