It’s titled “Race to the Bottom: Uncovering the Secret Forces Destroying American Public Education.” Today the Daily Wire published an excerpt from the book about the director of ethnic studies for Seattle public schools, a woman named Tracy Castro-Gill. Originally Tracy Hammond, her husband asked her for a divorce and Hammond decided to leave him and her young daughter behind in California so she could marry a convicted child molester in Seattle, a man she’d met playing the video game...

    Microsoft announced on Thursday it has hired a law firm to review how the company handled sexual harassment allegations against some of its top executives - including founder Bill Gates - and is expected to release its findings in the spring. The review will be conducted by Washington, D.C.-based Arent Fox LLP, which the board of directors selected because it has experience in dealing with sexual harassment allegations and has not conducted much work with the company in the past. After the law firm's findings go public, Microsoft is set to release a report detailing its sexual harassment investigations and...

  • MultiCare hospitals order symptomatic COVID-positive staff to see patients

    MultiCare Health Systems is ordering symptomatic, COVID-positive staff to work at its area hospitals, the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH has learned. Officials with the organization are refusing to comment. According to an internal memo dated January 6, MultiCare hospitals have moved into “crisis levels of staffing.” The impetus for the move was the rise in hospital visits, though not all due to COVID. Consequently, the hospitals modified their return-to-work process, ordering staff “to work even if they are experiencing mild symptoms but are improving.” But a MultiCare staffer claimed unless a staffer has a fever, “they want us coming...

    Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser just announced no one can leave their home or hotel without papers 24/7. You can’t enter any restaurant, bar, retail store, department store, gym, or even walk the streets, without government issued photo ID, plus proof of vaccine.This is happening in America.People “like me” are banned from Washington DC. I’m not certain- is it because I’m a Jew, Republican, or unvaccinated? Maybe all three?

    Gov. Jay Inslee proposed new legislation on Thursday, which would make it a misdemeanor for elected leaders or candidates to spread unfounded allegations of voter fraud. Speaking on the one-year anniversary of the now-infamous U.S. Capitol riot, Inslee opined that “the threat to our democracy is just as dangerous on January 6, 2022, as it was a year ago.” “I think we do need to do much more than commemorate this day of infamy,” he said as part of the Associated Press’ 2022 legislative preview. “I think we need to realize that this is a continuing effort to continue the...

    BARSTOW, Wash – When game officials and state troopers did not respond, families in northeast Washington spent hours on Christmas Eve rescuing elk that had fallen through the ice into the Kettle River. Rylee Stuart first heard about it from her husband the morning of Christmas Eve. He and his brother had gone hunting for coyotes when they saw something they’d never seen before. “He was like, ‘there’s elk in the river,'” Stuart said. About 40 elk from the Selkirk herd made it across the river safely. But, 12 fell through thin ice and were struggling to get out. Stuart’s...
  • Retired police commander confused, angry over daughter’s death at hands of Redmond officers

    Andrea Churna thought someone was trying to kill her when she called Redmond police for help the night of Sept. 20, 2020. Raised around cops, she did what she was asked to do when police arrived to find her armed with a handgun. She put the weapon down, walked out of her apartment unarmed, clad in a T-shirt and yoga pants, hands up, and laid face down on the carpeted hallway floor outside her door — “proned out” as officers at the scene described it. None of that kept police from killing her. An officer, just 18 months out of...

    It had been 364 days since his last appearance, and more than a year since his last start, but Chicago Bears quarterback Nick Foles made the most of his opportunity on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. With starter Justin Fields and backup Andy Dalton out due to injuries, Foles’ name was called. And Foles — who first rose to fame by leading the Philadelphia Eagles to an incredible win in Super Bowl LII after replacing injured starter Carson Wentz late in the season — led the Bears to a 25-24 comeback win on Sunday in the snow. The victory, Chicago’s...

    Delta Air Lines flight from Seattle to Shanghai mysteriously turned back and returned to the United States nearly six hours into what should have been an 11 hours flight to China. The mid-air flight cancellation has resulted in a rebuke from the Chinese consulate in San Francisco which said on its WeChat account that it had “lodged a protest” with the airline. Delta has since cancelled its planned service from Seattle to Shanghai until December 30 at the earliest but it remains unclear why the airline was forced to turn around in the first place. According to witnesses on the...

    A confirmed wolf kill was discovered near Walden, Colo., the home of one of Colorado’s wolf packs. An approximately 500 pound purebred replacement heifer was found dead after being attacked and eaten by this pack of wolves. This is the first confirmed wolf kill of livestock in Colorado in over 70 years. In early 2021, Colorado Parks and Wildlife confirmed the existence of this pack in north central Colorado; however, individual wolves have been sited in the area previous to the pack confirmation. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials are working closely with the livestock producer to learn as much from...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) called Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) Monday morning to explain himself to the Congressional Progressive Caucus chair, and Jayapal said she gave him an earful. (snip) “And obviously yesterday, the senator took the latter path and went back on this word. That lack of integrity is stunning in a town where people say the only thing that you have is your word.” Jayapal went on to say that she said as much to Manchin when he called her on Monday. “There is nothing I have said here that I didn’t say to him,” Jayapal said.
