Why a ‘Back the Blue’ #WalkAway Republican is About to Become Seattle’s Next City Attorney

Published

on

The Democrats have put up a candidate for Seattle City Attorney so insane that a #WalkAway “Back the Blue” Republican is widely expected to win the race next month. Two former Democratic governors of Washington and the far left Seattle Times have endorsed the Republican, that’s how scary Nicole Thomas-Kennedy is. Democrats love to make fun of Republicans who say far out things, but they’ve met their match with Thomas-Kennedy. The Republican, Ann Davison, was a safe 21% ahead in a poll earlier this month.

 

The race is getting no coverage outside of the Seattle area because the mainstream media doesn’t want Americans to know just how frightening the left can be. Thomas-Kennedy is running as an “abolitionist” who wants to abolish the police and jails. She intends to dismantle the criminal division of the office and stop prosecuting crimes. That part of the office prosecutes misdemeanors; including DUIs, assault, theft and domestic violence.

A former public defender, Thomas-Kennedy said “property destruction is a moral imperative.” and “I for sure hate this country.” She despises the police, referring to them as “serial killers,” “pigs, “Nazis,” “stains on humanity” and “ACAB,” which stands for All Cops Are Bastards. When rioters tried to shut down the Seattle Police’s East Precinct in the summer of 2020, she said the person who detonated an explosive device, blowing a hole in the precinct wall, was a “hero.” Similarly, when someone set fire to a construction area and trailer, she tweeted, “YAY! Thank you to the heroes that set the Children’s Jail on fire.” 

 

She said the police don’t deserve the COVID-19 vaccine and “Eat some covid laced shit and quit ur jobs.” When former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, who was forced out by radicals, promoted department efforts to rebuild community trust, Thomas-Kennedy responded with “Enjoy sitting in your dirty diaper you crybabies.” She said she has a “rabid hatred” for the police and “I currently read like a single issue law enforcement abolition anarchist.” 

 

She has a lengthy discussion on her campaign website of why theft should not be prosecuted, claiming that people steal because they’re hungry and want a sandwich. But as a former prosecutor, I can tell you that’s not true, very few people steal food because they’re hungry (they can get food at food banks), and if they are prosecuted for it, it’s only in order to have them plead guilty to a lesser charge than their more serious crimes.

 

Her campaign manager, who tellingly protects her tweets, is even scarier. Tye Reed said Biden should die after a speech he gave on race and social justice, saying his wasted breath was “hopefully his last.” Nothing happened to her of course, since she’s a leftist. She said about Seattle’s Mayor Jenny Durkan, “That b**** Mayor Durkan … is gonna get her a** beat one day.” In response to a shooting, she wished, “Prayers the victim is a kkkop.” She referred to Best as an “Uncle Tom motherf***** benefiting off the suffering of black folks.” On Thomas-Kennedy’s campaign Facebook page, there is a photo of Reed wearing a shirt with a photo of a burning Seattle Police SUV with the slogan “This is a policy proposal.” 

 

Thomas-Kennedy defended Reed during an interview with Fox 13 earlier this month. “I think that she’s a Black woman in America that has seen a lot of people that look like her being killed by police and she was probably pretty angry about that.” 

 

  1. Kimi Kondo, who served 28 years as a Seattle Municipal Court judge, calls Thomas-Kennedy “an avowed anarchist,” and was one of 30 retired judges who endorsed her opponent. The Washington Democratic Party admitted they were not endorsing her, and refused to defend Reed’s tweets, with Democratic Party Spokesperson Alex Bond saying she “doesn’t appear to have much affection for the Democratic Party or our elected officials and doesn’t work for us, so I’m not sure how or why our party would answer for inflammatory and irresponsible statements they might make.”

 

Democrat-turned-Republican Ann Davison has zero experience in criminal law and lost two previous races. She ran as a Democrat for city council emphasizing removal of homeless encampments from public spaces including parks. After that, she switched to the Republican Party and failed to make it past the primary for lieutenant governor. 

 

She’s annoyed the left by referring to them as “The Democrat Party” instead of “The Democratic Party.” She opposes a new law requiring school districts to provide sex education. She attended a “Back the Blue” rally in August 2020, posting photos of herself with the president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild. She criticized Seattle’s policies banning residential evictions. She attacked Democrats for demonizing business and criticized Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee’s mask mandate. She recorded a video with #WalkAway Brandon Straka in June 2020, saying what caused her to leave the Democratic Party was how they looked the other way at homelessness. She said it’s not being green spending money to improve areas that are just then allowed to be destroyed by the homeless. “It breaks my heart what they’ve done to my city.” 

 

Granted, Davison is not a hardcore Trumper. She voted for Biden last year. She didn’t vote for either Inslee or his Republican challenger Loren Culp last year. 

 

Thomas-Kennedy is trying to back away from some of her most controversial tweets by saying she has a right to troll people on Twitter — but her platform on abolishing the police and the prisons is still on her website. She thinks she should get a free pass for her tweets — even though the left viciously cancels conservatives for tweets they regret.

 

Many Democrats endorsed Thomas-Kennedy anyway, including former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and Seattle City Councilmembers Tammy Morales and Teresa Mosqueda. They chose her in the primary over the incumbent, Democrat Pete Holmes, whose focus in office appeared to be eliminating crimes related to marijuana. While Thomas-Kennedy may be too radical today, the number of Democrats who are just fine with her is a disturbing sign of where things are eventually going.

America No More…

Published

on

After watching with over a hundred others the newly released movie, Civil War, I left the theater stunned, and I was not alone. Was it a good movie? Just a deeply unsettling one! Could it really happen? You don’t even want to imagine it! But with Biden’s assault on America continuing and Trump reemerging as the favored GOP candidate, the American division is growing. More and more citizens are getting angrier as their standard of living is in jeopardy and illegals are getting benefits citizens can only dream of.

Spoiling the movie’s plot is never appropriate, but when Western forces from Texas, Florida, and even California take on the elected President, the country is left in a civil war. We watch as desensitized media professionals cover the death of hundreds of American citizens. To the film’s media, the war is just a once-in-a-lifetime story that deserves to be captured one picture at a time. After all, it’s the media’s job. They are just feeding citizens what they want—blood, gore, winners, and victims. What would happen if America descends into such chaos? This movie provides one disturbing view, one that, God help us, must never happen.

One thing is clear, when a country loses trust in its leader’s ability to preserve their cherished freedoms and ensure equal treatment under the law, even insurrection seems somehow possible. That is a nightmare no American should have to entertain, but more and more Americans seem to be losing hope in the future of our country. They don’t trust elections. Many don’t even like the Presidential choices presented to them.

The Founding Fathers valued freedom enough to unleash a revolution against the greatest power at the time. Enough citizens joined them in securing what most at the time believed impossible, independence. Yes, insurrection hatched our beloved America. Belief in equal rights and freedom are powerful forces that have always driven patriotic Americans to action.


Even with our differences, most Americans believe in property rights, voting rights, law enforcement to keep us safe, freedom of speech, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, more and more Americans feel these values are in question, and they are not sure America can be saved!

Many Americans no longer even believe that elections will produce a lawful winner. They don’t trust the voting machines. They want paper ballots that can be counted. They don’t believe multiple days are needed. Hasn’t one day of voting always been enough? They want required IDs and signed mail-in ballots. They fear ballot harvesting is just another name for ‘manufacturing” all the votes you need to ensure a fraudulent victory. Are American fair elections no more!

Many no longer believe that the enforcement of law is fair and sure. While former President Donald Trump has been charged with multiple “crimes,” President Joe Biden’s similar actions aren’t even charged. Hunter Biden’s influence peddling with money set aside for the “Big Guy” are not even covered in the mainstream media. The Dept. of Justice is quick to charge Trump, but with the Bidens, we hear nothing but crickets. People who commit crimes are being let go instead of being held accountable. Is American law and order no more!

Under President Trump, our border was finally more under control. Under Biden, his open border has been continually flooding our country with illegals from around the world. They come expecting benefits at the expense of taxpaying citizens. Illegals overwhelm services in our urban areas. Legal immigrants had to wait years to enter and are fuming at this invasion of illegals rushing to the front of the line and expecting to be accepted, supported, and allowed to become citizens. Is America’s secure border no more!

We thought in America, your home was your castle. If you work to buy the home of your dreams, you were sure that your property rights were secure in a community that you loved. But today, squatters are taking over vacant homes and fending off owners who want them to leave their property. Illegals are being told to come to America, find an empty home, and move in. In the name of equity, governments are rezoning the suburbs and requiring the building of low-income housing where it is not wanted. Are America’s property rights no more!

Do you believe America is lost? Do you believe nothing can reverse this march to chaos? Do you believe that it is time to buy your own guns to protect your family when the government won’t? Is a civil war coming? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in danger of losing the optimistic attitude that has characterized Americans for two centuries. This is our country. This is not the time for surrender. It’s time to fight to preserve America the best way you can—vote for candidates who promise to preserve the rights you value most.

Your vote does matter. There are no perfect candidates, but the party positions make a difference in this critical election. If you want law and order, secure borders, fair elections, property rights, and a return to personal responsibility, there is only one party to support. Vote for every GOP candidate you are given the opportunity to support, or it may very well be America no more!

Biden wants to tie Israel’s hands

Published

on

After Iran launched an extensive drone and missile attack against Israel, Iran’s president vowed to completely destroy Israel if it proceeds with a military response. In plain language, Israel is not allowed to react as any other country would after being attacked. That seems to be the opinion of many world leaders, including Joe Biden.

That’s like saying that the US had no right to retaliate after Japan’s attack on December 7th. This absurd policy applies only to Israel. If Iran launched missiles against the US, imagine what we would do in response. (Of course, with a wimp in the White House, there is a good chance that we would do nothing.)

On the evening of 13 April 2024, Iran launched hundreds of deadly missiles against various sites in Israel. Iran’s attack was presumably in retaliation for an Israeli strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus. Israel’s justification for its attack is that the Iranian consulate has been the center for Iran’s terrorist activities throughout the Middle East. The consulate “did not have diplomatic immunity,” according to attorney Alan Dershowitz, “because it was not being used for diplomatic purposes; it was being used to plan military attacks against Israel.”

With assistance from the US, the UK, neighboring Jordan and other nations, Israel successfully intercepted nearly all the missiles and drones. Despite the lack of damage, Iran’s intent clearly was to inflict serious harm. Iran underestimated Israel’s ability to defend itself. Now Iran’s president Ebrahim Raisi has vowed to completely destroy Israel if it proceeds with even the “tiniest invasion” of Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country would be the one to decide whether and how to respond to the Iranian attack, brushing off calls for restraint. “The state of Israel will do whatever is necessary to defend itself,” Netanyahu said. “Everything is on the table right now,” said a source in the Israeli government. Israel possesses an impressive range of high-tech weaponry, including nuclear weapons and F35 fighter planes that can overwhelm Iran’s outmoded air force.

“Iran declared war on Israel by sending more than 300 bombs in Israel’s direction, aimed at civilian as well as military targets in Jerusalem and other locations,” said Alan Dershowitz. “As a matter of law and morality, Israel is entitled to respond to this act of war by overwhelming, even disproportionate, force against Iranian military targets.”

Biden has not supported Dershowitz’s argument. Instead, he has “sent a clear message to the mullahs that there would be no consequences for their rogue actions,” said Lisa Daftari, a leading Iranian-American expert. “What we are seeing is a manifestation of weak policies and the ayatollah’s correct read on American foreign policy.” Biden’s policy, said Yaakov Katz, a leading Israeli security expert, “does not work and the world’s strategy of diplomacy and sanctions is not effective. The world needs to shift gears and change the way it has tried to confront Iran.”

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe agreed that the Biden administration’s tepid policy has emboldened Iran. “Joe Biden’s reaction to that hit in Damascus sent a message to Iran and to the rest of the world that the US was not with Israel, that the US was reluctant to support Israel on this. And I think that emboldened Iran. And as one of the former intelligence officials in Iran said to me, with friends like Joe Biden, Israel doesn’t need more enemies.”

Biden has warned Israel not to take action, said Alan Dershowitz. “Biden wants Israel simply to proclaim victory and not respond appropriately. This will only encourage Iran to take further military action against Israel either directly or through its numerous proxies,” Dershowitz warns. “If the [Iranian] regime felt endangered, it could attack Israel with its nuclear weapons, as it has threatened to do. That is an important reason why Iran’s potential nuclear arsenal should be destroyed before it can be deployed.”

“This is the time to act,” Dershowitz concludes. “Iran has provided Israel and the United States with a complete legal and moral justification for destroying its nuclear weapons program and for beginning the process toward regime change. If we do not act now, it may be too late.”
