King County Executive Dow Constantine announced that the county would shut down its downtown Seattle jail on Wednesday, raising serious questions about the future of public safety in the metropolitan area rocked with a surge of crime and left-wing political violence in the wake of the failed Capital Hill Autonomous Zone experiment.

The King County Jail, which currently houses more than 1,300 inmates, is slated to be closed when the coronavirus pandemic is brought under control.

Bail Bondsman Denis Behrend Jr. questioned the county’s strategy when speaking to Q13 FOX, noting that many of the inmates currently detained in the jail have been charged with violent crimes.

I’m shocked, I can’t understand what the plan would be for this… I sit in the courtroom almost every day listening to cases and we don’t bond out everyone. There are some seriously dangerous people in custody.

It’s totally unclear how the county is planning utilize pre-trial detention after phasing out the downtown jail, with some indications suggesting the county is planning to do away with it entirely.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan recently admitted that the city had undergone a whopping 525% increase in crimes after the creation of the CHAZ, an anarchist project that was only broken up by Seattle police after a total of four murders, some of which the commune’s self-appointed security was responsible for.

The Seattle City Council is also planning to cut the funding of the Seattle Police by 50%, forcing the department to lay off hundreds of officers. Police Chief Carmen Best is urging the council to reconsider the “very rash and reckless decision,” and also rebuked a suggestion from a councilor to fire the department’s white police officers to avoid laying off officers that are minorities.

The formerly tranquil Pacific Northwest community appears poised to engage in a radical new experiment of rule by anarchist mob and the abolition of traditional American law and order.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
