Seattle: Propaganda war to demonize police has paid off

It appears the propaganda war initiated by city politicians and Black Lives Matter to demonize police has paid off. According to reports, Seattle’s Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan is concerned about the mass exodus of police officers from the Seattle police force putting the number of active police at levels seen in the early 1990s. Meanwhile, the city’s population has grown by 44%. The Blaze explains: Democratic Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan — who once called the police-free autonomous zone in her city a “block party” amid a “summer of love” — is now “deeply concerned” over the mass exodus taking place within the city’s police department.POLL: Did you watch any of the 2020 Presidential Town Halls last night? KING-TV reported early Friday morning that a record number of officers had left the department in September, according to a new Seattle Budget Office report. The report noted that 39 officers and officers-in-training “separated” from the department while an additional 14 officers extended their leaves.  The exodus is part of a continuing trend that has resulted in at least 118 officers leaving the …

Seattle: Peaceful rioters throw explosives at police

It was another night of peaceful rioting in Seattle. This time left-wing anarchists threw explosives at police and into a Starbucks after smashing a window on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020. The Daily Wire writes: Photos taken by the Seattle Police Department showed graffiti spray painted on various buildings calling for police officers to be murdered. Law enforcement officials “arrested 16 individuals after various acts of property destruction, assault, and vandalism” that occurred during the riot, according to the police department. “A group of protestors left Cal Anderson Park shortly after 9 PM Saturday heading North. A few members of the group were seen committing acts of vandalism and property damage along the way. The group slowly made their way to the 1600 block of East Olive Way where they shattered windows and threw explosives into a coffee shop.” The police department said that arrests were also made for failure to disperse and rendering criminal assistance after the rioters attacked police officers with what officials said was an “explosive.” READ: Riots Break Out Again In Seattle: …

Seattle cuts funding for 100 police officers

In recent weeks, Seattle has experienced riots and protests with left-wing radicals demanding cuts to police funding. Well, apparently its city council has agreed with these extremists and voted by a margin of 7-2 to cut funding for its police department by $3.4 million. The Blaze explains the consequences: The proposal cuts about $3.4 million from the department’s $400 million budget. Seattle has about 1,400 police officers and the bill would cause 100 police positions to be cut by attrition. The cut to the police department’s funding falls far short of the demands from Black Lives Matter protesters, who have called for 50% of the funds to be diverted to social programs. Kshama Sawant, the far left socialist member of the city council, had voted against the bill because it didn’t go far enough to meet the demands of the BLM protesters. Of course, not everyone is on side with this decision. Seattle Conservative talk show host Jason Rantz had this to say about the recent decision to cut police funding: “This Council will always …

KNKX bends the knee to Seattle’s left-wing mob

University of Washington atmospheric professor Cliff Mass was recently fired by KNKX, a publicly owned jazz and blues radio station in Seattle, Washington. Mass hosted a regular weather program at the station. Mass said his tenure at KNKX has always been a bit tenuous writing: A collection of activist folks has been gunning for me for a long time and have energetically tried to get me kicked off KNKX.   The reason:  the  discussions of climate and climate change in my blog.   No, we are NOT talking about what I said on air, where I stick to weather and the content was controlled completely by the station.  They objected to what I said in my outside blog about climate change. Mass does believe in man-made global warming, but has gotten into trouble when he criticizes the media and environmental groups that make exaggerated claims of the damage and severity of global warming. He never did this on air, only on his blog. But apparently he crossed a line, when he dared to criticize the Seattle rioters …

Is there a spiritual battle raging over Seattle and America?

Last night (Monday, Aug. 10, 2020), worship leader Sean Feucht went to Seattle’s former CHAZ/CHOP zone, an area taken over by left-wing extremists a few weeks back, to hold a worship service. Feucht has been holding outdoor services across America during the lockdown. While hundreds of Seattle believers turned up for the service, according to Feucht they were met by “violent protestors” some who were carrying signs hailing Satan. Sean Feucht reported on Instagram: Violent protestors showed up flashing knives! We had an entire satanic cult march through the worshippers the entire time yelling “Hail Satan!” We had white Antifa yelling & threatening black local pastors! They yelled obscenities and cursed at my wife and kids all night long! Yes, those brave left-wing extremists tried to scare and intimidate women and children. Though, Feucht had wisely brought along bodyguards, the violent agitators were able to damage some musical equipment, and as well unplug generators used for the service. But Feucht noted that the believers in attendance were not intimidated by the protesters. And during the …

Violence, chaos, fires, death as city mayors fiddle

Ancient writers claimed that Nero played his fiddle as Rome burned to the ground in 64 AD. Despite these stories, many modern historians state it never happened. But if you want evidence that it did, you only have to watch America’s city mayors in action. Not only are some mayors standing back and allowing the rioting to take place by hamstringing their police, others have actually voiced their support and one mayor even participated in a riot.

More shootings at CHAZ or CHOP?

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan assured the world last week that CHAZ or CHOP was going to come to an end. It is a seven-block area inside Seattle taken over by left-wing extremists. But apparently, CHOP still exists and there have two more shootings in the Marxist utopia resulting in another death. This time it involved the killing of a black 16-year-old and wounding of another black 14-year-old boy. READ: ‘Enough is enough!’ — Seattle police chief fed up after another fatal shooting of a black teen near CHOP But the protestors are really, really, starting to annoy the Democrat mayor. Note I had to use two “really(s)” to properly express her outrage. The Blaze describes why she is so upset: Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan expressed outrage after Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at her home Sunday afternoon, despite her previous support and defense of the “CHOP” encampment. Protesters targeted her home after Durkan announced last week that the city would no longer support the Capitol Hill Organized Protest encampment and would seek to remove …

Does Seattle mayor plan to turn all of Seattle into CHAZ?

Seattle Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan has announced the city will be dismantling the CHAZ/CHOP Paradise Lost experiment after the recent shootings in the seven block zone taken over by left wing extremists. They had allegedly turned the area into a no-police zone. READ: Seattle will move to dismantle ‘CHOP’ zone after shootings, mayor says So while she is pledging to end CHAZ, it appears the mayor has bigger plans for Seattle. Mayor Durkan also announced that there will be major funding cuts to the Seattle police force in an effort to counter the economic fallout from the city imposed lockdown due to the Coronavirus. This will include a $20 million cut for the remainder of the year. But there are more police cuts coming. Fox News reports: Demonstrators occupying the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or the CHOP, have called for the police department’s budget to be slashed by 50 percent. But the mayor’s proposal accounts for just a 5 percent decrease in the police budget for the rest of the year, according to the Times. …

Renaming CHAZ to CHOP: New letterhead ordered?

According to reports, there is a move afoot to change the name of the seven-block police-free Marxist utopia set up in Seattle from CHAZ to CHOP. CHAZ was the acronym for its original name the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. It was originally six blocks in size, but according to Seattle police it recently annexed another block.

Then the speaker reminded his comrades of deadly retribution delivered amid a well-known historical revolt. . “Has anybody here ever heard of the French Revolution before?” he asked before noting it began “because people started putting property over lives!

One person tweeted: One …

CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, in Seattle has apparently grown from six city blocks to seven. It is allegedly, the police-free, Marxist version of utopia. Gateway Pundit explains what happened when a street preacher dared to enter utopia: A street preacher who entered the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone established by Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists in Seattle was attacked by Antifa thugs on Saturday who choked, sexually assaulted and pinned him to the ground.

Jesus and Seattle police officer issue warning

In an interview with Fox News about CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Free Zone, a seven block area (it has grown by one block) taken over by left-wing extremists in Seattle, Seattle police officer Michael Solan had this to say: “This is very concerning. And I think it should have everyone across the country deeply concerned, because this could metastasize across the country. It’s quite clear that city of Seattle elected officials are lacking the political will to enforce the rule of law. And this is the closest I’ve seen since being a 20-year professional of a public safety service of our country becoming a lawless state.” . And when you have six, now seven blocks of a city of Seattle owned geography now being occupied by some say are still armed people, especially at night. Where do we go from here? And what happens to the reasonable community in Seattle, particularly the business owners that surround that area or the residents. And we are already seeing reports come out of those residents saying they’re …

Seattle’s walls have been breached

According to several reports, police in Seattle are ready to abandon or have already abandoned the East Precinct after a group of radical activist, code word for Antifa, took over an area of the city the size of several city blocks creating what they call ‘Free Capitol Hill.’ The boarded-up East Precinct is located inside the zone. Apparently, the extremists have barricaded off the area and are preventing people from entering the zone. There was no indication of when they would start issuing passports.
