  • NYC bar in COVID-19 hotspot refuses to shut down after state yanks liquor license

    NY Post ^ | 11-28-20 | Sara Dorn and C.J. Sullivan
    It’s an “open” rebellion. A Staten Island pub located in a coronavirus hot spot is stealing a page from Seattle’s anarchist cookbook, declaring itself an “autonomous zone,” free from the public-safety restrictions its owners say they will refuse to abide by. “!ATTENTION! We hereby declare this establishment an !!!AUTONOMOUS ZONE!!!” read signs outside and around Mac’s Public House in Grant City, invoking a phrase more commonly associated with the monthlong occupation of Capitol Hill in the Emerald City by anti-cop radicals. “We refuse to abide by any rules and regulations put forth by the Mayor of NYC and Governor of...
  • 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,...

    Seattle has had a rough go of it for 2020, and that’s not even taking into consideration the pandemic. Liberals have overtaken the city. First, they had to deal with CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Now, they’re dealing with radical leftist leaders who want to allow the criminals to rule while punishing the law-abiding citizens. Seattle officers are done with it all – and many are retiring years before anticipated just to distance themselves from the stupidity. While they could turn in their paperwork and go silently, they’re standing up to their oppressors. They’re being bold and honest in...
  • Federal Judge Allows 21 Businesses to Sue Seattle Over Harms Caused by CHOP ( formerly known at CHAZ )

    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...

    Crews from the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department, alongside the Seattle Police Department, led a large scale clean-up of Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

    The father of the man killed inside Seattle’s CHAZ/CHOP zone has sued the City of Seattle, King County, and the State of Washington for $3 billion. In the suit, the father’s attorneys claim that actions and inactions by local government authorities led to a hazardous and lawless situation that resulted in the death of 19-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson, who went by Lorenzo. According to KING 5 News, attorneys for Lorenzo’s father, Horace Anderson, released a statement: “It is important to hold our government leaders accountable so this will not happen again,” said Attorney Evan Oshan in a prepared statement. “Those...

    Following an investigative report the paper of record has revealed that business owners who were stuck in the Capitol Hill Organised Protest ‘aren’t so sure about abolishing the police’. No sh*t Sherlock. The New York Times has done something distinctly out of character and actually produced some decent journalism. Taking a break from getting editors sacked for allowing Republican senators to write op-eds and forcing out the few remaining sane people on their staff for not quaffing the identity politics Cool-Aid enthusiastically enough, they dispatched a reporter to Seattle to pick through the remnants of the CHOP, a month after...

    In a "life comes at you fast moment," Paul Gallant, who is a radio host for 710 ESPN Seattle, documented how rioters destroyed the Starbucks that is attached to his apartment complex over the weekend. Riots broke out in response to President Trump sending federal agents to the city to help protect government property. Gallant posted on his Twitter account the damage that was done to the Starbucks and said the Seattle police told residents to stay away as there could have been explosives thrown inside. Gallant was "really angry" and said he was planning to take his cat and...
  • Beyond defunding the police: Democratic leaders condone crime

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 15, 2020 | Anna Giaritelli
    Democrats are moving a step beyond national debate over defunding the police, questioning whether crime is a bad thing at all. During the past month, three leading Democrats have all issued statements blessing criminal acts. As some Seattle residents illegally seized several city blocks in June and christened the area the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan did not initially intervene. Instead, Durkan said CHAZ was “patriotic” and that it could turn into “a summer of love.” “Burning, rioting, and looting are criminal acts and should never be justified or excused,” said Heritage Foundation President Kay James....

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | July 3, 2020 | Kay Coles James
    Our country is under attack from radical leftists. Mobs rampage through our streets, monuments are being destroyed, and the very law and order that ensures our communities’ peace and security is being undermined. In far too many instances, those bent on destruction have hijacked protests, creating violence and division and ultimately attacking the very foundation of our nation. For them, it’s not about resolving race issues; it’s about using racial discontent to forward their anarchist agenda. One such group is Antifa. While it is widely recognized as a far-left fringe group, another organization—just as radical—has managed to drape itself in...

    **SNIP** The petition accuses the mayor of: “Malfeasance and violation of oath of office.” It also said Durkan, “Led a militant police force against citizens peacefully protesting,” when officers used tools like tear gas and flash bang grenades to disperse crowds. Attorneys for the mayor called the allegations “legally insufficient,” and pointed to what they called a lack of any evidence, which “fails to provide any applicable rule, law or standard that was violated.” “We respectfully request the court to dismiss this petition,” said Ryan Groshong, the attorney for the mayor. The other petition that was filed had further accusations...

    SEATTLE - As suddenly as it appeared, the Capitol Hill Occupation Protest was gone. **SNIP** Durkan’s destruction of the CHOP was a reversal of her previous position. On June 12, when Trump accused her of letting anarchists take over the city, Durkan responded, “Seattle is fine. Don’t be so afraid of democracy.” But over the last few weeks, the CHOP had become increasingly controversial. While the daytime scene resembled a music festival or cultural event, the nights became more violent. Six shootings, two of them fatal, occurred in or near the zone in the last two weeks of June, a...

    SEATTLE, WA—There's a hot new tourist destination this summer: the ancient ruins of CHAZ/CHOP in present-day Seattle. The ancient country was once a bustling center of commerce and trade, its chief export being outrage and its chief import being everything needed to survive like food, shelter, and water. "Look at the remains of this ancient, primitive civilization -- it's quite fascinating," said one woman as she pointed to a sea of abandoned tents. "They seem to have nearly discovered the secret of fire. Though it appears they used it mainly to light up these bongs over here." A tour guide...
