Just gets better by the minute up here. A Sunday afternoon press release. Property owner-built "cottages" in backyards to help alleviate addicted bum aka homeless problems. It’s not an affordable housing problem. It’s a bum aka “homeless” problem. Interesting how there are signs posted at parks and beaches here warning against feeding birds because it attracts vermin. Only four-legged vermin aren’t acceptable here. Those with two legs get a pass. Won't be long before it starts looking like the Los Angeles area with all those "granny houses" and converted garages now housing a lot more than grannies.
Disclaimer: I have lived off and on in Seattle and its greater area a total of about thirty years of my “young life”. I’ll likely die in the Puget Sound area. I am a true Native Son of the Golden West being a “Boomer” born and raised in Orange County, CA. I challenge anyone here to have ever had to provide their political affiliation on what amounted to a job application. Anyone, anyone? Took the recruiter over an hour squirming in his seat explaining the “importance” of such a question. That question was eventually legally abolished but not after the chance I had to proudly profess “GOP!!!!!!” in writing. And I was just a kid only shortly able to drink and vote (sequence intended). Like two of my idols Murrow and Pyle reporting from the bombed-out rubble of London I can give a firsthand report from the trenches of Seattle. First of all the newest tax allotted upon Seattle is a Seattle City tax – just that – not a King County tax. Matter of fact the current King County Executive called upon Seattle not to establish the tax. Amazing considering he has a few years before his next rolling in the mud aka run for office. The tax was enacted by fiat by the city council – a group that’s proud of the bronze Lenin statue displayed in the city. The same statue Michelle Malkin still denounces remembering her days as a cub reporter here. Some of you may recall my comments about the political priorities in this town. Long running priorities. A business hall at the state university in the middle of town named after one of socialism’s favorite poster children – Harry Bridges. A town and for that matter a good portion of the western part of the state devoted to worshiping Wobblies still goes on. Ask Milo after his attempted speech at the local state university. Some violent events those bastards caused in Washington and still live in admiration of proud union members who extol doing just what Grandpa and Dad stood for. See why Boeing has left for safer ground? And as far as Boeing et al and the newest tax - Boeing has little of their operation in Seattle anymore. Major assembly here is outside Seattle city limits. Expedia? Still hasn’t moved here from across “The Lake” in the neighboring town of Bellevue. Time will tell. Starbucks? A whore if there ever was one. Got themselves exempted from last year’s Seattle sugary drink tax. Weyerhauser? What a bunch of dumb shits. Moved their HQ from outside into Seattle a couple of years ago. The next shareholders’ meeting should prove interesting. Costco? Only one store in Seattle. HQ is intelligenty outside Seattle. Love watching how the list grows and grows about taxable entities every day. Media makes this all about Amazon. Yes, a $12M tax hit is interesting. However Amazon has, and is, looking at moving “some” operations out of here. Not hard to unplug a computer and plug it in another cubicle in a friendlier area. Have mixed feelings about Amazon. Bezos will pass his costs onto me but love to think about the little giggling bastard having to pay more costs and hopefully divert dollars from The Washington Post. I have seen Detroit and Seattle is becoming what I've seen. So there, I could go on and on. But as a resident and taxpayer in Seattle coughing up more and more in new taxes and levies I must adjourn to another tax sitz bath.
McCain – a log that’s long jammed the swamp drain outlet for quite some time. In his swan song book McCain claims “I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as 'the dossier' ”. Omnipresent news reports at the time from British tabloids – strike that – insert “newspapers” – extolled McCain heard about the screed, became highly aroused and hurriedly dispatched an ally to London to obtain a copy. More like Don Quixote on crystal meth rather than someone agreeing to receive a copy. How this guy who was massaged and inserted into politics by his convicted felon and Mob-connected father-in-law has ever been considered reputable is beyond me.

Guess Stevens still has sour grapes stuck in his craw after his side lost D.C vs Heller ten years ago. Doubt we'll see Heller overturned - at least in this senior's lifetime.
Monday’s Current Events When I was a kid in grammar school I loved “Current Events”. Clipping a newspaper article about something timely, presenting it in front of classmates and reading the snippet. One I recall that had Southern Californians in awe was Florence Chadwick swimming non-stop from the mainland to Catalina Island. Another was hearing on the radio it was National Pickle Day and announcing it to the class. This irritated my teacher who sent a terse note to my mother demanding I cease with absurdity and report actual events. Mama Bear replied accordingly and my curious pursuit of truth and relaying it was not stifled. So my current event for the day is about the stock market. Indices closed up today – way up from that big hit they took this past Friday. The drops obviously had to do with the budget, trade wars and all the other significant compelling factors that affect economies. But I see today there’s a chart floating around that tracks last week’s drops and today’s hefty rise along with what caused those events. Concern over the budget? No. Trade wars? No. Axis of Evil? No. It’s the Stormy Daniels Crisis. The world and finances stood at a precipice Friday in anticipation of what this North Hollywood* star might say. Sunday she said it. Monday market recuperation. What a world we live in. * Home to our nation’s porn industry.

It quickly became tedious trying to watch Trump explain his signing the other day. “It’s for the military” just doesn’t cut it. Listening to that repeatedly is like listening to “It’s for the kids”. Perhaps he has something up his sleeve in doing what he did. If not the Dems will use their gains last week to promote a free lunch agenda for the upcoming elections. And that agenda will be very effective for them.

McCabe is not, at this time, losing his pension. That’s a myth hatched and nurtured by the media. As it stands now having been fired forty-eight hours before his retirement eligibility – his fiftieth birthday March 18 – he is in a deferred annuity status. That means he isn’t eligible to draw his pension until March 18, 2025 – the date he turns fifty-seven and would be mandatorily retired from federal law enforcement. Unless he is able to overcome the firing he’ll lose seven years of retirement income and not be able for federal health benefits or life insurance during that time. He can and I predict will file an appeal with the Merit System Protection Board (Board). Watch for that appeal to be hand carried to the WA, DC Board office as soon as this coming Monday. The Board will review his case and there may or may not be a hearing. If the Board rules in his favor he will be able to retire effective March 18, 2018 and entitled to retroactive benefits back to that date. If the Board rules against him then he has one other option – Federal court. He can’t take his case to court until after filing and being denied his appeal by the Board. He can only lose his pension if he is charged and convicted of certain specific federal crimes. The two primary crimes affecting this are treason and espionage. There are a few other crimes that come into play with what we may or may not now know about McCabe. Those crimes include “leaking”. Where McCabe stands to take a big financial hit is that he is now tainted goods. Career professionals like him very often walk into high six or even seven figure jobs with the likes of Kroll, major corporations or think tanks/lobbyists. McCabe’s soiled resume puts the kibosh on that.

Hell, read it again. My grammar was correct the first time. Time to quit worrying about grammar and stick to facts. I'd love to debate anyone, anywhere about anonymous tips and leads received by law enforcment. That is only if anyone who wants to debate can match or exceed my proud and productive thirty years behind a gold shield. When I smell a decaying rat in law enforcement I can sniff out a big stink......
Theirs not "there's". Also gives me a chance to add that an investigation of Broward's 911 records - including but not limited to Cruz - should be a part of investigation of the S.O. Not calls selected and disseminated by the media.
Broward County uses Enhanced 911 so there's no such thing as an anonymous call there.
Hot off the press 12 Feb 2008: "Laura Ingraham said New York's junior senator is 'weaponizing' the #MeToo movement in order to swing more female votes to her and the Democrats........ Gillibrand has fully weaponized the #MeToo hashtag movement... with the intention of driving the female vote in the midterms..." Still stand by my 13 Jan guarantee that Dems will use #MeToo in 2018. It'll be like kamikaze attacks against our fleet in WWII.
Conspiracy theory of the day. Soros, who's made lots of $$$$$$$$$$ hedging financials, is sitting in one of those secret James Bondesque islands or mountain forts taking world stock markets down to make Trump's financial accomplisments look like a shitehole....... PS: If anyone thinks markets are going down further then buy SKF. But don't wait too long to make that move and be prepared to sell quickly.
Bore witness to one of these places last night. Women jumping around grabbing their privates. Men screeching about abusing women. And it was right here in the U.S. of A. The Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden – New-York-City. A shitehole for the senses if there ever was one.
Yep, early signs of the Dem's 2018 platform - not to mention Stormy Daniels, et al:
Safe to say you’re not a fan of Brown ;) According to what I read recently Brown’s still smarting from the drubbing he and his entourage took in ’78 with Proposition 13. His attempt to rationalize his current problems blaming something from forty years ago reminds me of President 43 blaming President 42 for anything and everything. Although short of funds for necessities I expect Brown to order up large signs along his southern border: ¿Tired of your shithole? ¡Then come to mine!¡BIENVENIDOS! ~ Governor Edmund Gerald “Pat” Brown, Jr.

Roy “Dirty Old Man” Moore – the gift that just keeps on giving. Now Beverly Young Nelson, the Southern belle who claims Moore signed her yearbook when she was a young maiden slinging hash, has admitted she did an addendum to Moore’s alleged script. Of course that’s no big deal to Nelson’s attorney, Gloria Allred. So using Nelson’s first allegation and the latest seems as though she’s in the area of having impeached herself. Toss in an actual and respected forensic handwriting analyst saying the alleged Moore writing is consistent with the same writer – not that he said Moore was the writer as Allred initially claimed – this screed about script gets even more interesting. Nelson admitted doing some of the writing and an analyst said the questioned entry is consistent with one writer – hmmmmmmmmmmm. Let’s not forget Nelson had a legal document bearing a Moore signature or facsimile thereof with the initials D.A. after Moore. A clerk for Moore at the time of the document’s origin said D.A. were the clerk’s initials – a standard procedure for entries on documents from Moore’s court. But Nelson said it was Moore’s way of claiming his niche in local government – district attorney. The same Nelson who now admits to amending Moore’s supposed writing. I rest my case. Bring on the election and let Alabamians decide – not the media, DNC, Hollywood and Gloria “Hollywood” Allred nor even observers like myself.

Diversity? I’ll tell you about diversity. A couple of weeks ago I passed through Londonistan. I have absolutely no need to ever go back to that place as a tourist. Took a train from Birmingham Airport to London. Smooth clean, quiet and the epitome of efficiency. Got to London. The walk between train stations was the definition of cacophony. Then got on the train from London to Gatwick airport. The filthiest train I’ve ever ridden in all of England. People shouting on cell phones – of course with loud speaker phones with other’s shouting. Shouting words with no vowels – just consonants. Every word sounded like only “b’s” and “p’s”. How anyone could spend so much time shouting on a cell phone is mind-boggling to me. But hey, that’s just another “CELEBATION! ™ of diversity. Screw you or crawl in a hole and die if you don’t like it. Just ask the mayor of London The southbound train passed through the absolute armpit of London. East End and below. What was once the realm of London gangsters is now an even bigger cesspit. The new celebrated masses make the gangsters of times past acceptable. Want a filthy train car? No problem finding one in DIVERSE London. Just ask the mayor and lemmings fearing they’ll get their heads chopped off unless they smile and kowtow.
