    Democrats in Washington state, like their counterparts in the other Washington, don’t always think the law applies to them. They can create elaborate procedures to trip up Republicans in, say, election law. But those requirements are quite optional where they are concerned.Part of this is they see themselves as the good guys, fighting for right – no matter how many jobs are lost, how much damage is done to the economy or how little the measure does to help the environment. If they have to bend a few rules to make it happen – hey, it was the right thing...

    Bump-fire or slide-fire stocks use the rifle’s recoil to help simulate full-auto fire. (Photo: Slide Fire Solutions) In the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, Washington’s chief executive wants action to prevent what he termed “machine gun massacres” by banning a specific type of firearm accessory. Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, in a statement released Tuesday, argued the time to act to prevent gun violence is now and gave lawmakers marching orders for directed legislation. “This session the legislature needs to ban bump-stocks and other devices that turn legal semi-automatic firearms into lethal fully-automatic machine guns,” said Inslee....

    CENTRALIA— A couples therapy scheme gone very wrong is reportedly to blame in the case of two Centralia women glued together by the pinky finger using an unknown epoxy and a copper pipe, according to the Centralia Police Department. “They haven’t been able to feel their fingers for three days.” said Det.

Deckert, 27, attempted to turn herself in at 3:54 p.m. Monday at the Lewis County Jail on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for a driving under the influence case. She was served with the...

    Seattle Weekly ^ | February 27, 2017 | by Sara Bernard
    A few weeks ago, tenants’ rights activist Jon Grant announced that he’s running for City Council this fall as a Democratic Socialist. Although he is not, technically speaking, a member of any political party - the affiliation is more a kind of “shorthand to describe my values to voters,” he says - his second-time run for a Council seat is couched in the belief that, in Seattle, anyway, “it’s not enough anymore to be an establishment Democrat.” The events of the past year, and especially of the past few months, seem to echo that sentiment. November 8, 2016, was an...

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) on Thursday signed an executive order blocking state law enforcement agencies from detaining undocumented immigrants at the request of federal officials, days after the Trump administration began ramping up immigration enforcement actions.   Inslee’s order prevents state agencies from discriminating against or refusing service to those in living the country illegally. It also blocks those agencies from spending state resources to create or enforce a registry of citizens on the basis of religious affiliation.   The order blocks the Washington State Patrol and the state Department of Corrections from detaining anyone solely on the basis...

    Tacoma, WA – A Washington State Patrol Trooper is the focus of an investigation because he notified ICE about a criminal illegal immigrant, just as he had been trained to. According to Q13 Fox, the incident began on February 9th when the Trooper, who was not identified, did a routine check of a driver’s license during a traffic crash on I-5.  That driver’s license belonged to Armando Chavez Corona, whose car was hit during a multi-vehicle collision. When Corona’s driver’s license was checked, which is standard procedure for officers to do when investigating car crashes, a warning came back from federal authorities...

    American leftists see huge gains as anger grows against Donald Trump's anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim policies. The election of far-right President Donald Trump has led to a surge in membership of socialist organisations across the United States. During his first few weeks in office, Trump has already issued a flurry of executive orders targeting Muslims and immigrants, while moving to lift regulations on Wall Street. In response, protests have taken place in cities across the country. Last week, demonstrations against Trump's now frozen ban on travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries were held at airports. The day after his inauguration, millions joined...

    F-bombing anti-Trump Black Lives Matter agitator: A foul-mouthed Black Lives Matter agitator in Seattle told a rally that President Donald Trump and many others should be killed. The Daily Caller identifies the “Black Lives Matter” apparel-wearing megaphone user as female, which may not be accurate. To this writer the person appears to be a male with a high-pitched voice. But there is no way to be sure of the sex of the speaker merely from viewing the video. Moreover, the speaker may identify as something other than male or female, or human, for that matter, so this post will avoid...

    Eight children asked a Seattle judge Tuesday to find Washington state in contempt for failing to adequately protect them and future generations from the harmful effects of climate change, part of a nationwide effort by young people to try to force action on global warming. The petitioners, between 12 and 16 years old, asked a state judge to step in and require the state Department of Ecology to come up with science-based numeric emissions reductions.

    Hello, All! The oyster hatchery has now been effectively shut down for close to a month and I am delighted to report the joy of lower propane and electrical bills. I just got back from 5 days chasing elk in the Willapa foothills. We did not get an elk, but it was a magical trip. We hiked around 20 miles a day up and down ridges, through clearcuts and along swirling logging roads. We saw a lot of elk, but no 3 point plus critters, the legal minimum. Anyhow, we need more meat like a hole in our heads. It...

    So I sent in my Washington ballot today (vote by mail is bs in my opinion), and wanted to share the good news. During elections, my family sit down and we discuss the candidates and other stuff and things (Walking Dead reference, +2 points) on the ballot, both of my parents are lifelong democrats, as well as my older brother. I have always been the odd duck conservative in the family. Anyways, It is hard for me to even vote in Washington State since the I-5 corridor pretty much rules the state electorial college votes. After discussing the candidates and...

    A recent court filing indicates that the Washington State Attorney General’s Office believes that denying a prospective tenant with a felony conviction is racially discriminatory. A member of the Attorney General’s Civil Rights Unit served a Consent Decree on Dobler Management Company, a property management firm in Tacoma, after conducting a simulated test on whether the landlord was illegally discriminating against potential tenants. According to the briefing sent to KTTH’s Todd Herman, in May, the state asked a tester to follow up on a rental property advertisement on Craigslist, which said the apartment complex would automatically deny renters with a...

More than 100 people turned out for the rally to show support for Trump. “Usually at election time, we say we’re standing at a crossroads. My friends, this election, we’re standing at the edge of a cliff,” Mattila said. “There is so much at stake...

    The president of Evergreen State College is slamming the University of Chicago’s fight against political correctness, arguing that trigger warnings and safe spaces on campus are “critical” to students’ academic and personal success. George S. Bridges, who has led the Olympia, Washington, college since October of last year, wrote in an op-ed for The Seattle Times that the University of Chicago’s recent letter to incoming freshmen blasting safe spaces and trigger warnings revealed “a profound indifference to concerns that many students now bring to colleges and universities.” “Either the university is completely tone deaf to the academic and developmental needs...
