    Antifa members in Portland, Oregon are doing their best to take down conservative journalist, Andy Ngo, who has been covering their violent behavior for years. In fact, back in 2019, Ngo was attacked with a cement milkshake simply for documenting Antifa's protests and riots that almost always turn violent. Ngo has written a book about Antifa's thuggery, called "Unmasked," about how they target people and how their actions threaten our democracy. The book is available for preorder and is set to be released early next month. When Antifa received word that Ngo's book was for sale at Powell's bookstore, they...

    A region in the Pacific Northwest of the United States is on high alert because of concerns about a possible invasion of bitcoin (BTC) miners. The state has previously experienced an influx of Chinese bitcoin miners, due to decreasing electricity prices. Bitcoin Bull-Run Could Revive Interest in Mining, Officials Warn Per the Seattle Times, bitcoin’s bull-run is putting the public utility districts (PUD) in Central Washington on high alert, monitoring for suspiciously high power bills. PUD officials claim crypto miners from China have come to the region to take advantage of its low hydroelectricity prices. Such developments worry the Columbia...

    Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in the District of Columbia on Monday. His announcement comes ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. Federal assistance has been ordered to the District beginning Monday and continuing through January 24, enabling FEMA to "coordinate all disaster relief efforts" with the purpose of "alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population" and provide assistance in any emergencies that arise. As Biden's inauguration day gets closer, authorities in Washington, D.C., are preparing for marches and more potential violence after the failed insurrection attempt on Wednesday that...

    “The Fight for the Soul of Seattle” examines the role of Seattle’s City Council in allowing the situation to reach what many experts consider epidemic levels under the guise of a compassionate approach to people who suffer from substance addiction and who commit crimes to feed their habit. It documents the heartbreaking condition of people on the streets, and the crushing decisions Seattle entrepreneurs are forced to contemplate as their life savings and dreams are destroyed by theft, vandalism and a dwindling customer base. This documentary also explores potential bold solutions to treat those living on the streets and pair...

    (snip)...Layers of security fencing have been erected and some streets leading to the west Capitol Campus are closed, including Sid Snyder Avenue and Cherry Lane, which lead to parking spots and open space between the Legislative Building and the Temple of Justice. That’s typically where many protests and rallies take place, but that area has been closed except to House and Senate members and support staff, said Washington State Patrol spokesman Chris Loftis, who gave a security tour to media Sunday morning. All of the security measures and officers will be in place Sunday, Monday and “further if the situation...

    The office of Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes released a prolific offender after an assault arrest with no charges. That suspect then nearly stomped a separate man to death just a few hours later with kicks “so forceful and loud” a witness heard it from inside a car. Holmes’ office blames “proof issues” for denying an original charge against the suspect. But the incident report reveals a different story. This is the latest in a long list of cases highlighting the city’s light-on-crime approach that will get someone killed. Holmes bears the responsibility. How many victims must Holmes create before...

    third militant Antifa has been arrested and charged with arson over a firebombing attack on a Seattle police station. Jeremy Michael Haines, 34, of Bremerton, Wash., was arrested by Seattle police earlier this month and charged with attempted first-degree arson. Haines, who is transsexual and is also known by the name “Naomi Cassandra Krell,” has been arrested multiple times this year at violent Antifa protests. But the latest serious felony charge makes her the third suspect arrested over a firebombing attack on an occupied Seattle police station in September. Haines is accused by the State of Washington of being part...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 12/27/2020 | Meghan Cox Gurdon
    A sustained effort is under way to deny children access to literature. Under the slogan #DisruptTexts, critical-theory ideologues, schoolteachers and Twitter agitators are purging and propagandizing against classic texts—everything from Homer to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Dr. Seuss. Their ethos holds that children shouldn’t have to read stories written in anything other than the present-day vernacular—especially those “in which racism, sexism, ableism, anti-Semitism, and other forms of hate are the norm,” as young-adult novelist Padma Venkatraman writes in School Library Journal. No author is valuable enough to spare, Ms. Venkatraman instructs: “Absolving Shakespeare of responsibility by mentioning that he lived...

    'Squad' bill not tied with other coronavirus aid, unlike bill introduced by Rep. Richard Neal ------ Members of the progressive "Squad" in the House on Thursday introduced their own bill to send $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans after President Trump this week demanded the $600 checks included in Congress' stimulus deal be increased to that number. The legislation was spearheaded by Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; and Pramila Jayapal D-Wash. It came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the House will meet on Monday to vote on stand-alone legislation for $2,000...

    An Antifa militant who publicized a hit list of Seattle business owners has been identified as a trans nonbinary furry and children’s camp counselor who has been arrested multiple times at violent protests. Mikaele Andrew Baker, 23, of Seattle, tweeted an extensive list of local business owners last week who signed a petition in support of the dismantling of a growing autonomous zone in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The business owners were subsequently doxed and received threats. Baker was born male but now identifies as trans nonbinary and uses “they/them” pronouns. For months, far-left activists took over part of Cal...

    Seattle's "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" is back, apparently, after what was previously referred to as CHOP drove headlines this summer after police belatedly moved to dismantle large portions of it. It has managed to survive, in it's current form emerging recently at Cal Anderson Park as more of a homeless shelter occupying a public park.But the central irony no doubt missed by those advocating it as some kind of model far-Left utopia is that this week the encampment has erected a large "border wall" after the city announced authorities plan on clearing the area.Newsweek reports Friday that a "border wall...

    Bezos, the richest man in the world, benefitted from pandemic conditions More than 4,000 warehouse workers at Amazon, the e-commerce giant founded by the world's richest man, depend on food stamps to make ends meet in nine states, according to new U.S. Government Accountability Office data this week. The report said 70% of food stamp recipients who work at the United States' second-largest employer and other chain retailers like Walmart work full time. Amazon -- whose workers are pictured smiling in ads to match the company's curved arrow logo -- markets its jobs to high school graduates, according to Bloomberg....

    Seattle City Councilwoman Lisa Herbold voted to defund the police and then called these same police to report a misdemeanor crime she basically wants to see legalized. According to local media, this left-wing lunatic called the police last week after a man reportedly threw a rock at her living room window. She told the police (the same police she voted to defund) that “she was on the west side of the living room near the kitchen when she heard a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot and dove into the kitchen for cover.” All good, except… Herbold has proposed...

    Hundreds of people have attended a 'Freedom Rally' in a small town in Washington on Saturday after its mayor refused to enforce the state's COVID restrictions on businesses, citing 'the Constitutional rights of small town America'. Large crowds joined the Patriot Prayer-organized rally in Mossyrock, a rural community in Lewis County between Seattle and Portland, with maskless protesters waving flags and chanting against 'government oppression'. It came after the town unexpectedly voted last month to ignore Washington Governor Jay Inslee's state-wide business restrictions to stop the spread of the coronavirus. He told 'The governor has over-stepped his powers and...

    As Washington state elector Jack Arends registered his vote for President-elect Joe Biden on Monday, his voice cracked with emotion. Then, Arends, 64, told the chamber that a doctor last month had diagnosed him with an untreatable, terminal condition. "[In] November I was told there is no more medical treatment that can help me so it was important for me to do this one thing that I could do while I still can," said Arends, who wore a black beret reading, "Play Nice." After his speech, Arends placed his microphone on the desk, crossed his arms over his face, and...

    Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, Washington, rejected a student’s yearbook picture because she posed with an American flag draped over her shoulders. A statement from the school claims the decision was not made against what the flag represents, but out of respect: “We respect our flag as much as any school in the area and were concerned that in the photo submitted it was being used as a prop in the photo and was not being afforded appropriate regard.” “The fact that I can’t have my senior picture in the yearbook because it contains the American flag in...
