    Gov. Inslee brought with him some honeycrisp apples grown at the Governor’s Mansion in Olympia to give to people in Omak, Malden, and Bridgeport during a tour last week to survey the fires. But it turns out those apples were infested with apple maggot larvae, according to the Douglas County Facebook page... Apple maggots, if not controlled, could cause serious problems for orchardists in Douglas County. Governor Inslee released a statement, as obtained by KING5, about the gaffe. In part, “We regret this mistake. This a good reminder of the importance of awareness around apple quarantine.” But not everyone is...

    A man accused of starting a brush fire on state Route 167 in Puyallup was out of jail less than two hours before he was arrested a second time. On Friday, Pierce County prosecutors charged Jeffrey Acord, 36, with second-degree arson for allegedly starting a fire Wednesday that burned nearly two acres in the Route 167 median near North Meridian. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court on Friday afternoon.

    An alleged Antifa arsonist charged for reckless burning in the second degree had reported a fire set in Washington and then filmed his subsequent arrest. Jeffrey Acord, 36 of Pallyup, called 911 Wednesday evening to report a fire in the median of Highway 167 near Tacoma, Washington. After dialing dispatch services, Acord then livestreamed the incident to his Facebook page, providing constant narration. According to Q13 Fox, Washington State Patrol Trooper Ryan Burke reported that a man was caught setting a fire in the brush. State patrol also sourced a woman who cited a man walking on the highway in...

    China has raised its pressure on Taiwan, using harsh rhetoric and flexing military muscle around what it sees as a breakaway province. Taiwan has not interest in rejoining mainland China, and it has its own extensive military capabilities to defend itself. Increasing tensions across the Taiwan Strait have raised fears that actual fighting could break out, potentially drawing the US into a clash with China.Taiwan's future as an independent democratic state is uncertain. Chinese officials have repeatedly stated the island's importance to what President Xi Jinping has called "the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation" and have made no secret...

    The 16-year-old boy who was shot dead by CHOP security in Seattle was homeless and had just carjacked a Jeep when he was told by a friend to drive to the cop-free zone 'for safety', can reveal. Antonio Mays Jr died in a hail of bullets in the early hours of Monday morning and his passenger, a 14-year-old, was critically injured after armed security guards fired on their white Jeep Cherokee, which crashed into the barriers of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) security zone. Ciara Walker, 25, described the two boys as her 'street brothers' and said Mays...

    It’s been fascinating – and not in a good way – to see how the mainstream media and Democratic “leaders” like Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan continue to declare that the CHAZ or CHOP or whatever the hell it is called is a “peaceful” place with a “block party atmosphere.” Some in the media have likened it to a “street festival“, while Durkan recently predicted the occupied zone could very well turn into a “summer of love.” The reality on the ground is actually much different than these gaslighters would like for people to think it is. As my RedState colleagues...

    Democrat Mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan has quite the history with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group proven by a federal judge to have ties to HAMAS, labeled a terror organization in the United Arab Emirates, and whom works closely with self-promoting anti-Semite and vocal supporter of Sharia Law, Linda Sarsour. Sarsour has publicly praised Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan, once going as far as to invoke jihad on President Trump and the United States as a whole in 2017. “I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts...

    Seattle's mayor said that "autonomous zone" protesters are patriots, and not, as President Donald Trump called them, "domestic terrorists." Since Monday, protesters have occupied a section of the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood after clashing with police during a Black Lives Matter demonstration. "Demanding we do better as a society and provide true equity for communities of color is not terrorism — it is patriotism," Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted. Trump on Thursday tweeted that the protesters were "ugly Anarchists" who "must be stopped IMMEDIATELY." Seattle's mayor scolded President Donald Donald Trump for calling protesters occupying the city's autonomous zone "domestic terrorists,"...

    It is no secret that Washington State Governor Inslee is deeply offended by the fact that so many Washingtonians refuse to blindly obey his emergency proclamations. He has complained about his “insubordinate” subjects to the tame media. Reportedly, he has been enraged when local sheriffs have refused to arrest anyone who defy his random orders and dictates (approved by no elected body in this state), and this is why the Snohomish County Sheriff is facing a recall election effort mostly from Inslee supporters right now. Some observers are speculating that this move by Inslee’s politicized followers at L&I is an...

    Washington State Governor Inslee read the script prepared by his staff last week on Wednesday May 12, 2020 during his “press” conference announcement. While Inslee will be the face of the state’s virus policies, few believe he actually acquires these goofy ideas on his own. Every politician is controlled by advisors, and Jay Inslee is no exception. However, there must be a sliver of doubt in Inslee’s inner circle, somewhere, that he is not just making a major, catastrophic mistake, but that he is approaching the policy cliff and plans stepping off into the policy abyss – unless someone changes...

That era is over. by Chris Vance / May 8, 2020 Illustration of suburbs With Republicans failing to win elections in the King County suburbs, politics in Washington state is increasingly a fight between mainstream and progressive Democrats, writes Chris Vance. The forces changing American politics – from Trumpism, to democratic socialism, to a global pandemic — are truly tectonic.

    OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee announced Friday he would extend Washington’s stay-home order through May 31, but is seeking ways for some businesses to open before then, as he and state officials try to keep the new coronavirus from roaring back. “If we stick together for a while longer, we don’t lose the gains we’ve already made,” Inslee said, acknowledging that restrictions on daily life have been challenging for many Washingtonians. “It’s so frustrating, we don’t want to do this twice.” Inslee’s announcement comes as he and others try to chart a delicate course between a deadly virus that has...
