I told you yesterday about CHAZ, the so-called “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” It’s six blocks of Seattle that a group of Antifa radicals have taken over and declared to be their autonomous territory and “cop-free zone,” as city and state officials have once against turned a blind eye to their lawlessness. There are reports that they’re demanding “taxes” (i.e., extortion) from businesses unlucky enough to be located inside their occupied zone. Some of them were members of Occupy Wall Street, which pulled similar tactics until the rate of robbery, rapes and filth finally forced even blue city officials to let the police go in and clean them out.

Ironically, the first thing they did was surround their “zone” with barricades to keep unapproved interlopers out. That’s right: to keep their autonomous territory secure, they BUILT A WALL!

As mentioned yesterday, they offered to redistribute their food to the homeless, who promptly ate it all, leaving them starving and begging for donations of vegan meat substitutes and soy products (boy, there’s a surprise.) It took them just two hours of running their own “country” to discover that when you just redistribute other people’s wealth, you quickly run out of it. Their parents sure wasted their college tuition.

But it gets worse: without police, someone had to keep order and supply security. So it took less than a day before one radical “hip-hop artist” declared himself to be a warlord and put together an armed force that was reportedly going around threatening people. They were allegedly caught on video beating a young black man who was tagging a wall with graffiti, breaking his glasses and telling him that if he complained, they’d blow his brains out.

At least now, we know what will replace the disbanded police in Antifa’s post-America Utopia.

Meanwhile, here’s the official account of what’s going on there, from the Seattle Times. Their benign write-up makes it sound like a group of young idealists throwing another Woodstock, and just “trying to take our community back” (they certainly know how to keep graffiti off it.) Sample quote: “The movement — loose, egalitarian and scattered for now — seemed to hearken to previous moments of social change.”

Funny, it sounds more like it hearkens back to “Lord of the Flies.”


In recent days, coronavirus cases that were trending downward in the US have spiked by 36.5%. They’ve now surpassed 2 million.

This could partly be attributed to more testing identifying more cases, as well an expected rise due to reopening the economy. So when you go to work or to shop, please continue to take precautions; we aren’t out of the woods yet.

Let’s also give a nod to the 500-pound gorilla in the room: the mass protests acting as superspreaders, as “health care professionals” flushed away their credibility by turning on a dime from denouncing “open the economy” protests to endorsing anti-cop protests. It turns out the virus doesn’t make any special allowances for people protesting racism.

But right on cue, the “health care professionals” seized on news that President Trump was planning to resume his rallies, starting June 19th in Tulsa, warning that these would become virus superspreader events.

So apparently, the virus agrees with Black Lives Matter and opposes ending lockdowns or reelecting Trump. I always suspected that liberalism was a virus, and now health professionals have verified it.


These days, it seems as if the only way we ever hear the truth is if someone leaks it. So while the mainstream media outlets are acting almost as press agents for the Black Lives Matter agenda, and major corporations and Democratic politicians are genuflecting to them, here’s what the powers-that-be really think of them:

A confidential memo has leaked, written in 2015 by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s then-Director of Diversity and Public Engagement Troy Perry, about the struggles the Party’s presidential candidates were having with how to handle Black Lives Matter, which was described as a “radical movement.”

The memo (which was stamped “Confidential” and not to be shared with anyone) suggests that candidates never say “all lives matter” or mention black-on-black crime because that will “garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists.” If approached by BLM activists, let them know the campaign wants to “engage in an open dialogue,” but offer to meet instead with local community leaders and limit invited BLM activists. “Listen to their concerns,” but “don’t offer support for concrete policy positions” (that’s hardly a secret; it’s been the Democrats’ policy toward the African-American community for decades.)

The advice for what to say to the activists and the media (basically, “murmur caring noises but say nothing”) is pretty much what they’re doing now, only this was written five years ago. Obviously, they’re still afraid to suggest any concrete policies. So let me get them started:

I agree that black lives matter, and I also believe that all lives matter, because we are all made in God’s image, no matter what color we turn out to be. Every child deserves a safe, loving home and the best education possible so that he or she can grow up to achieve the American dream. Wherever racism is impeding that, it must be identified and eradicated. But there are also many other long-standing, entrenched policies that are particularly harmful to black Americans, and they could and should be dealt with immediately:

Stop forcing children to stay in failing public schools because the teachers’ unions have been prioritized over the needs of the students. Reform the public schools, and immediately give all parents vouchers to send their children to any school they choose. If they prefer to home-school, offer financial help with books and other resources.

Protect religious freedom and listen to church leaders, so that liberal politicians don’t look at black churches as nothing more than places for photo ops during election years.

Ensure that government aid programs are structured to support families and encourage keeping families together.

Create policies and tax incentives that encourage investment in black neighborhoods, to create good-paying jobs (President Trump was doing a great job of this, until the coronavirus lockdown, followed by a handful of radicals burning and looting and driving businesses out.)

Stop funding an abortion industry that disproportionately targets black neighborhoods and that has created a genocide against black babies. Those black lives mattered, too, and they were all destroyed before they could even get started.

Finally, provide a well-funded, well-trained community police presence so that residents don’t fear the police, but they don’t have to fear gangs and street violence, either. Here’s a narrative-buster: a 2015 Roper poll found that the percentage of black people who wanted more police in their neighborhoods was twice that of white people.

Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research referenced that study yesterday in her testimony to the House on this issue, which you can read in full at the link. It’s a must-read, from the eye-opening statistics (one-seventh of all welfare dollars in the US were spent in New York City, but crime continued to rise) to the personal stories from her own research (like the elderly Bronx cancer amputee who was afraid to leave her apartment because of all the drug dealers outside. Then the police set up a watchtower there. She said “As long as you see the police, everything’s A-OK…It was the peacefulest summer ever.” She could sit outside, go get her mail and “talk to decent people.” She said, “Please, Jesus,” bring the police surveillance tower back.)

All of these things would do a lot more to improve black lives, or the lives of every American, than “defunding the police” ever would.


Add to the ever-growing list of things that most people enjoyed that must now be relegated to the PC trash bin of history: TV cop shows. Not because they glorify violent, racist cops, since they don’t. But because they depict cops as the “good guys” instead of showing brutality and racism, which apparently is a biased view that reinforces privilege.

Surprisingly, one of the Hollywood producers pushing this nonsense is a co-producer of “Monk,” one of the most benign cop shows in history, a comedy/drama about a mild-mannered retired cop-turned-detective who has such bad OCD that he can barely leave his house.

Another show in danger of being erased: “Paw Patrol,” a kid’s cartoon featuring a helpful police dog named Chase, which apparently “brainwashes” kids into thinking that law enforcement is a noble profession. No, I am not making this up. The very fact that the cops on those shows are nice is what makes them intolerable. If only they’d thought to make Monk a brutal racist and give Chase rabies

You probably never imagined that “Monk” and “Paw Patrol” would be on the “cancel” and “disappear” list. But then, a lot of old school liberals who indulged and defended the new “woke” fascism probably never imagined they would end up like Stalin’s supporters who were painted out of photos in history books. Here’s a partial list of some who discovered just how big and mean the Frankenstein’s monster they helped to create has grown once it turned on them (I’m sure this list will just keep growing every day.)

    HYPOCRITES much? These thugs in the CHAZ are doing exactly what they claim to hate: built a wall, guard it with weapons, threaten their own occupants, and engage in extortion. I guess it's AOK with them as long as they are the ones dealing it out.

    I'm wondering whether President Trump will make good on his ultimatum to send in the US military to retake this communist-insurgency occupation? It is obvious that Gov. Jay Inslee and Mayor Jenny Durkan will do nothing; these idiots think this enemy occupation is nothing more than a peaceful "block party." Inslee (for his remarks about Trump being "unhinged") and Durkan (for saying to the POTUS to "go back to your bunker") are guilty of Treason for allowing these leftists to hold American citizens hostage under war-like conditions. There are rumors of "the war-lord" enforcing his own brand of "law" (which include beatings for people who don't tow the line of these anarchists). Regarding Durkan and her stupid remark about Trump in his bunker? Really??? What about "Mr. Hairy Legs" - sequestered in his own secret underground bunker? Again, leftist hypocrisy so "in your face" that I think they're begging for war. If I were to find myself "behind enemy lines" (trapped in this hellhole), these criminals would find out the real meaning of the Second Amendment. No - I'm not kidding. As President Trump said in a recent tweet, "This is not a game."

    When You Pack Thousands of People in an ever smaller area you have what we are witness to in the 7 states that constitute over 53% of the Covid -19 DEATHS. New York, New Jersey, California, Illinois and Massachusetts, Pennsylvania & Michigan 61101 vs National 114,698. Now consider the FACT that the Computer Program used to predict the depth of the Pandemic would exceed 2.2 MILLION Deaths in the US alone and would overwhelm the hospital system, which only missed the projected number 2.1999 million souls or 0.00277% of Projected Deaths. I'm not into conspiracy theories but something in this whole scenario STINKS to the high heavens! Backing up even further the WHO is purported to KNOW about the Virus as early and Nov. 2019 and the Scientists in China who attempted to put the word out were "DISAPPEARED" ? There are too many loose ends that all leads to $$$$ to be dismissed as an ERROR?

    Dear Governor,
    I agree with your suggestions about schools and community police. I do not believe in different treatment of any group based on skin color. I also agree that ALL lives matter.
    I commented on Facebook that all lives matter and was hit by many negative comments about how I just don’t understand what it’s like to be a person of color and have not experienced what they deal with every day. Of course, every negative response was made by a white person. So I had to ask - “and you do?” Crickets.,.
    I am a white woman, in my 60s, raised in a white home/neighborhood and attended predominantly white schools and a white Christian church. I had little contact with people of any other color. I, thank goodness, was never subjected to strong racial hatred or bias. It was not part of my life. I had a huge family and at annual reunions, I heard some comments or jokes, but not many. As I got older, and became more aware of the world around us, I saw and heard more about the civil rights movement, segregation, racism and hatred of people based on skin color. I could never understand the hatred and vitriol.
    I still don’t understand it. We are so far removed from vile slavery issues and had made great strides away from the racial divide that triggered the civil rights movement. I have thought that we were closer to Dr King’s dream than ever. Until about 2009 and after. It seems we have been backsliding. I never thought I would live to see black kids screaming for segregation. I always thought the goal was equality. Not socialist style equality but racial equality, as in Dr King‘s dream to be judged by character not color. It’s heartbreaking.
    I will not say I am “color blind” because that’s ridiculous. Of course you see skin color; along with eye color, height and other descriptions. But I will never understand hatred attached to color. Its akin to saying you hate red heads or people with brown eyes.
    Our more immediate family, our kids, grandkids and great grands, are a diverse group. We have a black daughter-in-law and granddaughter, a black grandson-in-law and 2 bi-racial great grandchildren. Our son has had very open and frank discussions with his wife’s family about this stuff. We live in east Texas, so there are some older family that experienced segregated bathrooms, drinking fountains and schools. They are worried about the younger generation of activists that are demanding segregation.
    I don’t like the knee jerk reaction so many have regarding the BLM activists. So many running to be in front of a camera to say they support them. As if to say “Look at me! I am proving how liberal I am! I support this group because they are black!” Bah! This is a group of thugs, like Antifa. I don’t care what color they are, the promote violence and hatred. They support
    abortion, one of the single most aggressive ways to try to eliminate blacks from this country by staunch eugenics supporters.
    One more point: I have read your opinion about the lack of history and civics taught to our children. We MUST push our school districts to put those topics back in the curriculum. Our youth needs to understand our system of government and our history. And some world history. They need to know that just because a Congress person says something is/is not constitutional, doesn’t mean they are correct.
    I have rambled, I apologize.
    Thank you for your newsletters.
    God Blees you.

    I submitted this longer than usual comment to the Editorial Page of my local big city paper but as expected- they elected to ignore it. I hope you publish it here in the comments.
    " QUESTION: Would the Floyd Choking death have been any less egregious if he had been male or female, white, or yellow, native American, or any other color skin? I think the truthful response to that has to be- “NO, any such death should be unacceptable to a society!” If that is so, then all the marchers were carrying the wrong banners, as they should have said “ALL LIVES MATTER!” The fact that 12.6% of the US population was able to “high jack” the issue and mobilize a huge part of the nation in the “cause”, is a clear indication that most Americans, of any sex or color, realize that we do have, in fact, a severe PREJUDICE issue. It is not limited only to color, but extends to nationality, sex- normal or gay- religion, and any other number of possible causes. Because this incident was centered around a Police Officer’s actions, the current “push” is to reorganize the Police Departments (some even advocating doing completely away with a “Police Force” and having a “Citizens Force”. This has usually resulted in “Vigilante actions”!) Our nation has an estimated 382.2 Million citizens and while there is no census of Police Officers, the estimate is there are between 750,000 and 850,000 sworn officers in the US. With those immense numbers, there is little possibility that we will ever reach “Zero Defects” and as a result there is certain to be a small number of “excessive force” events somewhere in the country; and with current video and cell phone pictures, these are certain to be picked up by the Press and blown out of proportion to the population involved. If we use a middle number of 800,000 it means we have about one Officer for every 410 citizens. Is this the correct number? Of course that number varies in different communities based on what is the perceived level of crime in that area. So what then determines the “level of crime” and should that not be the basis of size of Police forces? While race certainly appears as a major factor in “Police incidents”- it is not limited to just that area, as
    according to the FBI’s latest statistics, Blacks are 11 times more likely to be killed by someone of their own complexion than a white person. Where is the outrage in the black community over these black on black deaths? As to the issue of White Police killing blacks- the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA has done an extensive review of police shootings starting in 2015 and published a report that states: “We find no evidence of anti-Black or anti-Hispanic disparities across shootings, and White officers are not more likely to shoot minority civilians than non-White officers. Instead, race-specific crime strongly predicts civilian race. This suggests that increasing diversity among officers by itself is unlikely to reduce racial disparity in police shootings.” At the same time, if the BLM leadership was really concerned about “unnecessary deaths,” they would have recognized that the gathering of large groups of people during the current pandemic could well result in more total deaths from that disease exposure than the 1.003 lives lost to police actions in 2019. It would therefore appear that “enforcement of the laws in the existing population” is truly the issue being addressed- while the Law Enforcement community believes that is based on the crimes that ARE being committed.
    But let’s get back to what so many believe is the issue- PREJUDICE. How do we fight and change prejudice, and what does it originate from? There are many strongly held reasons that should be addressed- starting with the cave man issue of “Tribe” or “Family”, or “you don’t look like me”, “you don’t talk like me”, “you don't worship the same God I worship”, and a host of others. However, it would appear that there are two specific areas that have the best chance of overcoming all of the above- and they are ECONOMICS and EDUCATION! Look how huge groups from all ethnic backgrounds and races have been able to make a transition into the mythical “middle American class” and live peacefully in multiple areas of the country in our suburban developments. In almost all cases they did so by becoming better educated and thereby earning a better salary than their less fortune “Tribe” members- who still live in the ghettos of many inner cities. If we truly want to make long term gains (not short term temporary fixes- like doing away with Police Depts) we need to put huge funds into insuring the upcoming minority populations have superior education, not only available -but used by all! At the same time, public policy needs to change to insure the probability of a better “family life” within the home of each and every student. Providing economic assistance based on the number of children in a “fatherless home” should cease for all new births- putting an end to the “children factory” with no father figure present and 6 or 8 kids to insure an adequate income. In fact, for each year of no new offspring in an “unwed” mother situation should be rewarded with an increase in monthly income for those unable to gain meaningful employment. At the same time, we need to greatly improve the available housing for those still in the lower economic stratus of our society. With better education, better job opportunities will occur and gradually a transition of large segments of the minority community will occur. The “slums” as we know them will gradually decrease in size and the needed Police Force will also decrease as “crime as a way of life” is no longer the only way to “earn a living!” Addressing the existing “Drug Culture” across all levels of our society is another issue that needs to be separately addressed.
    This will take years and massive amounts of tax funds to accomplish and some members of the minority communities will challenge the program as “one to reduce the minority population”; but both issues must be addressed head on and not allowed to stop the progress of stopping the existing PREJUDICE that currently exists. It is time to start the process and hopefully some “thinking members” of both the minority community and the legislative bodies will have the guts to step up and take leadership roles! In a society that has an economic system that has allowed current tax policies to reach the point that, according to the New York Times, “the richest 1 percent in the US now owns more wealth than the bottom 90 percent!” And, as reported by Robert Reich in a 2013 documentary- “95% of economic gains went to the top 1% net worth individuals since 2009 when the recovery started”. More recently, in 2017 an Oxfam study found that “eight rich people, six of them Americans, own as much combined wealth as half the human race!” A tax system that produces this sort of financial inequities is badly in need in a major revision and the results should be applied by Government to solving the education and living conditions of the public for the greater good. This is not to create a “Well fare” State, but capital investments (including infrastructure that badly needs replacement) in Education and decent housing.
    If you agree with what I have said here- pass it on to both your local, state and federal elected officials and indicate you support such actions- THEN HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE AT THE BALLOT BOX!

    I'm so sick of hearing Black Lives Matter that I wish there was another country that had some sense that I could move to. The only reason we have hope that any color matters is because it was the desire of Almighty God to create us, and only a few lives matter enough to God to forgive sins, and save those souls. He said many are called, but few are chosen. We should take that seriously enough get it out of our minds that we are so special, It's not what we think of ourselves, but what matters is what God thinks of us. God made all things good, but that doesn't mean that we are good. He said the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked, and He alone knows us for what we are. We must be born again , so that we can see what we are and repent .
    This country for the most part is blind.

    I can't believe the masses are cowering behind closed doors wanting the government to fight their battles for them while they hide in the temporary safety of their homes, allowing these self-proclaimed protectors of the free to overthrow domestic governments of any kind. This is America! Bought and paid for by the blood of thousands of selfless, patriotic men and women...of all colors!

Will they also destroy the Nazi camps in Europe because of the history. Our grandchildren at this point will never know about the our history or the world history because it's being destroyed inch by inch. What did Christopher Columbus do? Did I miss something?

    It looks like it is time for the military to encircle CHAZ and cut off their water, power and stop anyone from entering or leaving. When they beg to get out for hunger and thirst they need to haul them off to a detention center. Give them the choice - a very long prison sentence for treason or ship them out of the US to never return. And companies are really making me sick as they are donate money to the BLM group rewarding their bad behavior and divisive actions. We are all Americans and should stop catering to radical demands. They should be supporting our police that saves more black lives and all other lives than any other group. I can’t see supporting a group that has innocent blood on their hands like BLM and ANTIFA. Both are bad for our country and create more division as they are racist groups.
