    Students at the University of Washington are demanding a relaxed grading policy to help black students “cope emotionally” with the ongoing protests and riots that have erupted in major cities around the nation after George Floyd died during an arrest on May 26 in Minneapolis. According to a student petition with 50,000 signatures, “If UW truly understands our pain, UW will be a part of alleviating it.” According to a report by Campus Reform, students at the University of Washington are urging officials to adopt a relaxed grading policy for black students so that they can “cope” with the recent...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington officials said Thursday they believe they have recovered about half of the hundreds of millions in unemployment benefits paid to criminals who used stolen identities to file claims during the coronavirus pandemic. Employment Security Department Commissioner Suzi LeVine said officials are still working to determine the final amount paid out fraudulently, but they believe it was between $550 million and $650 million. To date, the state has recovered $333 million, she said. “We do believe there is still a significant amount we can get back,” she said. The number of new claims for unemployment benefits...

    Washington’s Roman Catholic archbishop has roundly criticized President Donald Trump’s visit to the Saint John Paul II National Shrine on Tuesday. One day after Trump used federal police to forcefully disperse a peaceful protest in front of a D.C. Episcopal church for a photo op with the Bible, Archbishop Wilton Gregory insisted that the former pope the shrine is named after would never have condoned the president’s tactics. “I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to...

    The Trump administration gutted a key portion of the Clean Water Act on Monday, limiting states’ ability to block controversial pipeline projects that cross their waterways. The final rule from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) targets Section 401 of the law, which lets states halt pipelines that risk hurting their water quality. It’s been a target of President Trump, who last April ordered the agency to accelerate and promote the construction of pipelines and other important energy infrastructure. “Today, we are following through on President Trump’s Executive Order to curb abuses of the Clean Water Act that have held our...

    Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan asserted Sunday night that “white men” are responsible for much of the widespread destruction across the country during protests against the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after an officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes. “I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men,” she wrote Sunday night on Twitter, adding that they “experience the height of privilege and are co-opting peaceful demonstrations.”

    Right Journalism ^ | 05.31.2020 | Natalie Dagenhardt
    What started as a peaceful Justice for George Floyd protest in Seattle turned violent thanks to fringe Progressive and Antifa activists. And their abhorrent behavior is being defended by bad-faith voices, pretending we’re under assault by white supremacists. Or, even worse, peaceful protesters who are fine with the destruction. Americans have the right to peacefully assemble. This is beyond question. What folks don’t have the right to do is destroy property, assault officers, disrupt freeway traffic, or steal police weapons. Yet portions of Seattle were trashed, burned, and destroyed thanks to a large group of Antifa members, anarchists, and their...

    BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today said that if state agencies and officials around the country that are responsible for issuing concealed carry licenses or permits are not taking new applications because of the COVID-19 outbreak, they should not arrest people for carrying without a license/permit. “We’ve received reports that some agencies are using the coronavirus outbreak as an excuse for suspending the concealed carry application process,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “The constitution wasn’t put on hold because of the coronavirus.” SAF has been involved in several legal actions across the country...

    We The Governed ^ | 05/27/2020 | Glen Morgan
    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...

    When the first massive coronavirus aid package was passed in Congress it included substantial benefits for workers who lost their jobs because of the government-mandated shutdown. One of the biggest was the federal enhancement of state unemployment benefits, increasing weekly payments by up to six hundred dollars. As we quickly learned, Senate Republicans’ concerns over not having a cap on those benefits to prevent the payments from exceeding the employee’s previous salary were fully justified.That didn’t wind up being the only problem with the plan, however. We’re now learning that the hastily rushed through bill and the flood of...

    On Thursday, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) confirmed a report by the Freedom Foundation that they have included those who tested positive for COVID-19 but died of other causes, including gunshot injuries, in their coronavirus death totals. This calls into serious question the state’s calculations of residents who have actually died of the CCP pandemic. From the Freedom Foundation: The Freedom Foundation’s original report, based on DOH documents and statements provided to the Foundation, concluded that, of 828 COVID-19 deaths reported as of May 8: 681 (82 percent) “list some variation of ‘COVID-19’ in one of the causes...

    The Seattle Times ^ | 5/25/2020 | Jim Brunner,  Paul Roberts , Patrick Malone 
    Earlier this spring, as Washington began to pay out enhanced unemployment benefits to tens of thousands of laid-off and furloughed workers, a criminal organization halfway around the world spied an enormous opportunity. A Nigerian fraud ring, dubbed “Scattered Canary” by security researchers, would soon begin siphoning off the benefits, notably the extra $600 a week Congress had added to unemployment checks. Hiding behind a tsunami of legitimate claims, and using personal information likely stolen in past consumer data breaches, the ring and other criminals filed thousands of bogus applications with the state’s Employment Security Department (ESD). By the time the fraud...

    Police in Miramar, Fla., are trying to find New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar after multiple witnesses accused them of an armed robbery at a party, authorities said Thursday. Police issued arrest warrants for both men on four counts each of armed robbery with a firearm. Baker, a 2019 first-round pick who started 15 games last season, faces an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. Baker, 22, and Dunbar, 27, were attending a cookout at a Miramar home Wednesday night when a fight broke out, and Baker pulled out a handgun,...
