  • Drought Will Impact Pacific Northwest This Summer, Experts Warn

    05/24/2022 9:14:29 AM PDT · by blam · 25 replies
    Drought is expected to impact much of the Pacific Northwest this summer, including areas in eastern Washington, southern Oregon and southern Idaho, according to climatology and water officials. A recent map from the U.S. Drought Monitor shows that about 54% of Washington is experiencing abnormally dry or drought conditions, with about 25% of the state in severe or extreme drought, the Yakima Herald-Republic reported. Washington and Oregon recorded above-normal precipitation levels and below-normal temperatures in April, which brought gains to snowpack in some areas. But state climatology experts predict it will be warmer and drier than normal in summer months....

    On 16 February 2022, a 7-year-old boy in Seattle Washington died from a heart attack with blood clots in his coronary artery and liver. He died 13 days after being injected with a Pfizer “vaccine.” He suffered shock and cardiac arrest. He could not be resuscitated and died in the emergency department, APAR TV reported. His death was recorded on the US VAERS database. APAR’s article continued: “A CDC-funded study published [7 March 2022] in The Lancet concludes that most of the Covid vaccine-related adverse events reported during the first six months of the U.S. deployment were “mild and short-lived,”...

    Frustrated business owners are demanding action in the wake of a violent and disturbing attack last month by a man at a notorious homeless encampment in SoDo in which the suspect allegedly used an ax, pole and a wooden plank to attack his victim. Julian Brassea—Caballero, 43, has now been charged with assault in connection with the overnight beating on April 29 at the camp, located at 3rd Ave. S. and S. Walker Street.

  • Gavin Newsom savagely mocked as ‘disgusting transphobe’ for claiming men can’t get pregnant at abortion rally

    Conservatives on Twitter had a field day Wednesday bashing Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., for getting his far left talking points all mixed up. At an abortion rally, he denied that men can get pregnant, which goes against current woke ideology. On Wednesday, Newsom posted a video of himself speaking to abortion and Planned Parenthood supporters about his commitment to defend the "reproductive rights" of women and girls in California in a rebuke of the potential SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v Wade that was leaked in a court draft opinion on Monday. Newsom’s speech consisted of the typical boilerplate pro-abortion...

    Elon Musk is embarrassing himself on the global stage again by proudly bruiting a grade-school level of familiarity with the immensely complex concepts of free speech, censorship, rights and privileges of individuals and government authorities. The fact that this aggressively ignorant person is likely to take over one of the largest communication platforms on Earth should scare the shit out of you.Here is what the richest man in the world said earlier today, on the platform he intends to acquire:By ‘free speech,’ I simply mean that which matches the law.

    SEATTLE (AP) — The father of a child who was hit with pepper spray during the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests in Seattle has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit alleging assault and negligence by police officers. Their use of force sparked national outrage after video and photos showed medics and other protesters pouring water and milk on the screaming child’s face to relieve his suffering, the Seattle Times reported. An investigation by the Office of Police Accountability determined the boy’s injuries were “inadvertent” and not excessive force or a violation of policy. The officer was trying to spray another...

    The following morning, Magan got called into the office to start investigations of 30 to 40 people who’d been arrested for crimes such as trespass, burglary and property destruction. Five or six hours in, he began to suspect they’d given the police false names. But there was no point looking into it further. “We found out they’d all been released from custody prior to even being questioned,” he says.

    Three summers ago, and prior to the COVID pandemic, I wrote about the decay of Seattle, and I warned that Toronto could be next.The day has come, and the warm weather hasn’t yet begun. Crime is already rampant.On Easter weekend in Toronto, a woman was pushed onto the Bloor-Yonge subway tracks by another female (since arrested) and a teen forced out of her car at gunpoint in what has traditionally been a quiet north Toronto neighbourhood.There was also a $28.5-million bust of crystal meth and coke in a condo directly beside the Novotel hotel, where more than 220 homeless men...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Joe Biden is making his first trip to the Pacific Northwest since taking office on Thursday to tout progress he has made on his agenda, particularly on infrastructure, ahead of the November midterm elections. Biden's visits to the cities of Portland and Seattle - part of a growing travel schedule ahead of the elections - will also see him participate in a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. He will visit Portland's airport on Thursday to talk about investing in a runway that can withstand earthquakes and will spend Thursday night and Friday in Seattle, where...

    Nearly two years after Seattle led the way in defunding the police, the Washington city’s force is so understaffed it did not assign a detective to investigate a single case of a sex assault on an adult last month, according to a report. The depleted department now only has four detectives in the squad handling sex assaults, nearly all dedicated to child abuse cases, local NPR station KUOW revealed.

    A prolific offender brutally murdered an innocent friend with a hatchet, bolt cutters, and a drum in Shoreline. But you won’t hear all the details from Seattle media. In fact, one outlet flat out lies about the case. Police say Tyrone Bernard Wells, who has three misdemeanor convictions and was wanted on three separate bench warrants, confessed to killing Randee Leeann Rios after she spent the night at his apartment in Shoreline on March 27. The two had been dating. Court documents say Wells had been awake for four days and was a meth user. He told police he last...

    The mother of a 34-year-old man who died suddenly two weeks after his first dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine said she believes her son would be alive today if he had had the information he needed to make an informed decision about the vaccine. Victor Castillo Simoes died May 5, 2021, from an acute aortic dissection — an uncommon medical emergency in which the inner layer of the large blood vessel branching off the heart’s aorta tears. The condition mostly affects men in their 60s and 70s. In an exclusive interview with The Defender, Simoes’ mother, Henrietta Simoes, said her...

    Washington state plans to ban most non-electric vehicles by 2030, according to a newly signed bill by Gov. Jay Inslee. The bill says that all vehicles of the model year 2030 or later that are sold, purchased, or registered in the state must be electric. “On or before December 31, 2023, the interagency electric vehicle coordinating council … shall complete a scoping plan for achieving the 2030 target,” it reads.The bill covers a lot of transportation issues in the state and is a part of a larger $16.9 billion transportation package called “Move Ahead Washington,” which Inslee described as a...
  • A suspended Boeing 747 will host Westbank's new workspaces in Seattle

    Between the two towers of Westbank‘s WB1200 development in Seattle, a repurposed Boeing 747 is soon to be suspended. The body of the massive airplane will float above the residential project’s galleria as a centerpiece and a symbol of industrial innovation, on view as a sensational artifact for both pedestrians at street level and for residents in their dwellings overhead. Ian Gillespie, founder of Vancouver-based Westbank, leads the project with the aim of celebrating innovation. That’s why the fuselage will not only hang between the apartment towers an art object, but as occupiable space. The reused Boeing 747 will function...

    What happened to Seattle? The answer, of course, depends on your politics. In the news section of the Seattle Times, for instance, a reader is unlikely to see any consideration of a link between policing and public safety. “No single cause for 2021’s surge in gunfire in Seattle,” declared a typical recent headline over an article that points only to possibilities such as the pandemic or an unlucky cycle of “retaliatory violence”. But the majority view in Seattle appears to have shifted toward an acknowledgement that the unrest and destruction that occurred after the killing of George Floyd in 2020...

    Photos Two Seattle Antifa rioters were sentenced Friday in King County Superior Court for the attempted arson of a Seattle police precinct. One of the rioters, who is the son of a former Democrat lawmaker, was also sentenced in the assault of a police officer with a metal baseball bat during race riots that rocked the city following the death of George Floyd in 2020.

Laura Ruderman, was sentenced to five years in prison for first-degree assault, first-degree attempted arson and first-degree reckless burning. Twitter Screen-shots and links Danielle McMillan,...
