A recipe for disaster.

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.

Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs

Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most

America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.

Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.

Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.

President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.

Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.

The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”

The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.

“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.

In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.

Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.

Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
