KOMO News’ Special: Seattle Is Dying
Hot Air, by John Sexton

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/19/2019 3:55:42 AM

“People didn’t use to use the word embarrassing about Seattle, but they use it a lot now,” the narrator to a new KOMO News special titled “Seattle is Dying” says. The focus of the special is homelessness and the ways in which it has changed the city. There’s a section featuring angry residents of one area of the city who are screaming at their representatives for action. They want the tent cities managed and they’re tired of calling the police only to find out the police can arrest people

Arrogant Seattle, like arrogant San Fransicko is getting what it deserves. Anyone supporting socialism deserves to live in squalor. Just don´t let them emigrate to pollute some other community.

I live in Shoreline, just immediately north of Seattle city limits. I watched this special this past Saturday and I know that the bums and drug addicts are slowly trickling into my little town. The jackass in the room, is the reporter didn´t say what the main problem is. The GDdemocrats (sorry, that´s not swearing, it´s a prayer) that run the city. They have outright communists on the city council and they could NOT care what happens to the city. I´ve come to believe that letting these cities rot is a calculated effort but I cannot for the life of me figure out why.
And another thing, the reporter interviewed the City Attorney, asking for his ideas on rescuing the city. He is a known drug user. A few years ago he was observed buying marijuana and taking it into city hall. Going to him for advice is criminally stupid, he is part of the problem.
In the show, there is film where some of the councilmembers are at a North end district where the people are furious about the bums and drug use in their neighborhood. One of the councilmembers is smiling and the crowd goes ballistic and starts shouting at him. Every single person that´s interviewed in the special, talks about the bums and how drug use affects them. And I start shouting at the TV saying WHO DID YOU VOTE FOR, YOU IDIOT. My husband doesn´t like watching TV with me.

Well that didn´t take long. Dim cities usually can go for a couple of decades until the voters figure out that they are in quicksand up to their necks.

The problem with all these liberal-run cities is that their people move out because of liberalism and move into conservative cities, whereupon they go about doing the same things that wrecked their city of origin. We just cannot allow liberals to run anything.

I have NO sympathy for these pathetic people who´s sole concern in life is finding a way to get drugs to mess up their mind. Cut all aid to anyone who tests positive for drugs and keep yourself well armed for when the zombies come at night. If all of the suburban and rural communities use this philosophy maybe we can keep these losers restricted to the cities where they are welcome.

I´m sure some nimrod of a politician will say that the solution to the problem is that the price of drugs on the street are too high, and that the city needs to provide free heroin along with the free needles.

Seattle has become a liberal dystopia, an example of what George Orwell predicted in his novel, 1984.

The language of oppression invented by the totalitarians is called Newspeak. It´s designed to discourage free thinking.

Hey, George you were right. You just got the date wrong.

By the time I first began weekly visits to Seattle in 2016, it was no longer safe. I took a hotel near Pioneer Square thinking it would be convenient to the US Consulate where I had some business. What a mistake. I had to ask the front desk if it was safe to walk the four or five blocks to a restaurant nearby. He said it was, but I would be accosted several times. It wasn´t, and I was.

As always in situations like this, I looked for the standard magnets. Yep, the welfare mission. The soup kitchen. All the "let´s take care of the indigent" folks doing what they do, which is give out free stuff to people who didn´t earn it so that they can be sustained in self-destructive patterns that would be unsustainable otherwise.

I have only one rule when it comes to helping vagrants. Don´t. Don´t give them anything. Not one cent. Don´t acknowledge them, don´t explain to them. The last thing anyone needs is some do-gooder feeding their self-destructive spiral out of misplaced so-called compassion. You can´t fix these people, but a concerted effort can shift them out of places that aren´t paying off.

Vagrants are mentally ill and need to be institutionalized so they no longer pose a threat to themselves or others. And the threat to the rest of us is very, very real. There are now plagues centers growing in encampments. Typhoid is recurring in Los Angeles. When pneumonic plague kicks off in urban centers, thousands will die, starting with the homeless who caused it.

Not all will die of the disease.

Never ever vote for a democrat. Seattle, Detroit, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Chicago and rest will be your future. Drive them out of every office. It is the only way to stop the madness. Anyone who can destroy cities and states and call it success are insane. They care nothing about your quality of life. All they want is the power to rule every aspect of your life. It’s all about power. Never ever give them any power or you will regret it. We must wrest the power they have out of their evil hands.

In the 1980´s Seattle started giving money to the homeless. They were blaming homelessness on Reagan but in fact it was mostly that the mentally ill had been turned out of mental hospitals for the past couple of decades.(See book Madness In The Streets)

The money attracted thousands from all over the country. The downtown streets had beat up vehicles parked everywhere. Disheveled bums begging everywhere downtown. And that was the convention area. It was an unpleasant convention to attend. And scary just to leave the hotel and walk to a restaurant.

They also wouldn´t serve water in the restaurants because they had a "drought". Yes, Seattle known for abundant rain didn´t have enough water. It was because they refused to build water facilities. They had also refused to finish their interstate highways so the traffic was jammed.

I was interviewing for a job in that same decade and they didn´t make an offer it turned out because some manager thought all Southerners were too stupid. And I also noticed that while they spoke against racism (and against the South) and they had a street named MLK Blvd. I heard many of them express their distaste for Native Americans. They said they were all bums and criminals and the only places they worked were fast food restaurants. So about halfway through the convention I quit going to the downtown restaurants and ate exclusively at a KFC and was served politely by some nice native Americans.
They finally made and offer and I refused it.

From each according to their abilities to each according to their needs. Who knew the neediest were the people in charge? So much so, their needs eclipse everybody else´s needs. Who knew there were so many needy people? Or are they people just looking for a handout? Socialism does not work!

The people that voted for this didn´t see it coming? Are they blind? Are they stupid? Are they dishonest? Why is Seattle dying?

Who is John Galt? Seattle is becoming Starnesville from Atlas Shrugged. Many lefty cities are sharing the same fate.

It´s amazing the extent of the muddled
do-gooder thinking of lefty politicians. I was naive back in the day but as soon as I experience real life a little bit you learn to see what works and what doesn´t. It´s not hard. I suppose these same politicians coddle their children also instead preparing them for the real world.

Come election time, they will dutifully march off to the ballot box and vote demoslut and hope a new batch of demosluts will fix their problem. Look at any major city in the country. It´s run by demosluts and have been for decades, and every one of them is a social disaster.

I live in a small town of less than 20,000 near a city of around 100,000. The larger town has a homeless problem, our little town doesn´t. Two reasons for this: first, the larger town has three different privately-run homeless shelters and feeding centers. Our little town has none, although some kind-hearted people are trying to drum up support for one; and second, 36 freight trains go through our little town every day - and hardly any of them stop here. They all stop in the larger town. The larger town even has free bus service. Few people but the homeless ride the buses, which has a route from the park where they all hang out during the day to the ´rescue missions´ where they go to eat and some stay there overnight.

I had the opportunity to go to Seattle several times in my career, late 90´s to 2006, to support a customer, Boeing. I would take a little time to experience the city. I recognized it´s geographic similarity to San Francisco´s hilly streets and view of the bay. The big difference was Seattle was a good deal cleaner overall, but it was missing the icon of Alcatraz Island. I very much enjoyed that duty. It is particularly saddening to learn of it´s demise at the hands of another installation of the counter productive destruction of socialist ideals.

So it seems to me that the street people who live in these tent cities rarely, if ever, reproduce. Yet their numbers continue to increase, rather than decrease as a result of that population dying off. It seems, then, that this population is constantly fed with new vagrants. As a society we need to attack the constant regeneration of this population. It would seem that various addictions are the root cause.

I worked in downtown Seattle (3rd and Pine) in 1977 when I was 17. If I worked late, I had to catch my bus next to Pike Place Market. I was constantly accosted by pimps. I had a gun pulled on me by some nut for refusing to engage in conversation with him. Seattle cops were a joke - more concerned with traffic infractions than street crime. Pioneer Square was jammed full of drunken Indians. Seattle "leaders" were already making the stupid decisions back then that have lead to the morass it is today. I fled in 1982.

I remember when my job took me to Seattle at least once a month. I loved Puget Sound, the beauty of the place. Hated the traffic! Rush hour from the airport downtown at midnight is fun...but I use to take off from my hotel and walk down to the wharf and around town.

I wouldn´t travel to that filthy hell hole now if you paid me to go there!

They caught the Severe Leftist Infection and that is entirely fatal, no cure except Capitalism and Republicanism, applied many times a day, dilligently used. Certain to net even be tried.

But, they are reveling in their disaster, circling the drain, like all other Dem run cities.

I left Seattle in 1960, age 18. I have not returned. Will not return. I live in the deep south and my bones will rest here.

The rulers of Seattle are crazed liberals. When an election comes along if they lose, they want another vote. Seattle controls western Washington. The rulers write the laws, dreams etc. for themselves. Truly, there are people in Seattle who are not happy with these rulers. However, the rulers make the rules without the consent of the people. Rulers don´t live on 33rd NE. They live in posh neighborhoods on Lake Washington.

I, like everyone here, don´t understand why. Why are the rulers destroying a beautiful city? Seattle-ites must be smoking a lot of mari-juana. Must be part of the uniform of the day.

When I see a car licensed in WA I wonder if the person(s) in the car want to move here. I don´t want any west coaster moving here unless they give up their bad habits formed in Seattle and SFran.

I´m going "home" to Seattle in September to visit my son. We may go to Pike Place Mkt. to get a huge bouquet of flowers. Don´t plan on any other major trips into the city. OBTW, Pioneer Square has always been a place for Amer. Indians to drink/get drunk. Has not changed, sorry to say.

Buh bye, Seattle!@!!

I am a native of Portland and the liberal Mayor and City Councul are taking us down the same path. What was once a beautiful city is beset by homeless camps set up by freeways and on the expensive bike paths. There is filth everywhere and panhandlers everywhere. Downtown businesses deal with harassment of their employees and customers and human excrément in their doorways and the cry from liberals is for more and more aid for them. Just yesterday a disturbing video was posted by a cyclist who commutes to work (Portlanders are avid bike commuters) showing the filthy mess campers have made of a costly route next to I205 and tells of the many times he has been accosted and threatened by hostile campers. Mental health issues and rampant drug use are keeping them out of shelters and it is said that they choose this lifestyle over complying with regulations. All I know is that a conservative city in a once conservative state has been brought to this deplorable condition by the same policies that have wreaked havoc everywhere they have been applied.

I watched the entire hour video, and then sent it to my city council and my police department. It is a cautionary tale that should be seen by those in authority of every city that has people standing on the street corners with signs. It is a lesson in how to show compassion without being stupid, and harmful to all parties involved.

Seattle has been a Democrat bastion for decades. In olden times when we lived there - in the early 60s - it was run by a few corrupt Dem politicians who also had a tight hold on liquor licenses. There taverns that could serve beer. Markets could sell wine (but not on Sunday). There were state package stores for hard liquor. And only full service restaurants could have full service cocktail bars.

The licenses for those special restaurants were few and very costly as politicians’ pockets were filled with “contributions”. Needless to say, there were not a lot of restaurants with cocktail service.

Boeing controlled the city’s economy. When Boeing was doing well, so was Seattle. When Boeing lost a big contract and began laying workers off, the entire city economy sank.

My DH was not employed by Boeing, and had the option to leave Seattle for another office. We made a run for it - to San Diego - and never looked back except for visits to friends in the city and on Bainbridge Island.

How Rudy Giuliani saved Donald Trump

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump´s lawyer, was greeted like a conquering hero when he arrived in the atrium of the Trump International Hotel on Thursday evening, hours after the publication of the long-awaited Mueller report. Well-wishers cheered and clapped before he disappeared upstairs for dinner. As the fallout from special counsel Robert Mueller´s 448-page report reverberated through Washington a day later, allies of the president praised Giuliani’s legal strategy for ensuring President Trump was not among the hundreds of witnesses who sat down with investigators.

Vatican makes history: Pope allows

For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility. The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace. A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a “pause in politics,” Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.

The ridiculous excesses of political correctness have now stretched all the way to Yankee Stadium and Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Both the Yankees and the NHL Flyers have banned Kate Smith’s famed 1943 recording of Irving Berlin’s classic “God Bless America.” The Flyers — for whom the recording has long been a good-luck charm (Smith herself sang it live during the 1974 Stanley Cup final) — went even further: They’ve actually covered up a statue of the singer that stands outside the arena. The Yankees have played the recording during the seventh-inning stretch ever since 9/11. The problem? Two other songs Smith

It’s fun to write your own version of this using other religious sites. “Islam gaining traction in popular travel destination Mecca.” “Former Argentine cardinal relocates to Rome.” And to think, this isn’t even the most embarrassing big-media take on religion in the wake of the Notre Dame fire. But fair is fair. The AP’s story about this is much better than the unfortunate headline appended to it. It doesn’t typify the secular perspective of the title as much as it responds to it, informing readers who might regard Notre Dame as chiefly a cultural landmark

He discussed a lot of topics, but his most memorable comment came when he called Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation "two years of bulls*it." Now, the public has Mueller´s 448-page report, and it tends to support the president´s assessment. In this sense: At its heart, the Trump-Russia probe was about one question: Did the Trump campaign conspire, coordinate, or collude with Russia to influence the 2016 election? Mueller has concluded that did not happen.

Once more, only lumps of coal

It was Christmas again this week and all the Democrats got in their stockings were two or three lumps of coal. Or maybe it wasn’t Christmas, but Groundhog Day. The earlier summary of Robert Mueller’s findings was only a summary, after all, and everyone knew the actual report had all the good stuff. Mr. Mueller wouldn’t let us down. Ah, but he did. Great expectations dashed again. The Democrats, but for the dwindling number of grown-ups in the party of Jefferson, Jackson, Harry S. Truman and FDR, were so sure that Mr. Mueller would deliver the goods

Is that all there is? That song was a huge hit for Peggy Lee in 1969, and I couldn’t get it out of my head Thursday as I was reading the Mueller report. “Is that all there is? Is that all there is? If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing.” No collusion, no collusion, no collusion. The report just confirmed what crooked FBI agent Peter Strzok told his paramour two years ago, that when it comes to the Russian collusion delusion, there is no big there there. The Mueller report doesn’t just speak for itself,

Julian Assange not only knew that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer wasn’t his source for thousands of hacked party emails, he was in active contact with his real sources in Russia’s GRU months after Seth Rich’s death. At the same time he was publicly working to shift blame onto the slain staffer “to obscure the source of the materials he was releasing,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller asserts in his final report on Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election. “After the U.S. intelligence community publicly announced its assessment that Russia was behind

They wanted it, and they got it. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election has been released, and it confirms — yet again — what everyone except liberal conspiracy theorists already knew: President Trump’s campaign and Russia didn’t collude. Good news: We still elect our presidents! Yes, Trump once taunted Russians to find Hillary Clinton’s missing e-mails. Yes, Trump’s inner circle took a meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer. And yes, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and others have been charged with crimes. These things look bad and, to varying degrees, they are.

At just 37, Pete Buttigieg doesn´t have much of a record to run on. He´s never held a federal office or won a statewide election, nor is it likely that he could in a conservative state like Indiana. Yet outside of his inspirational rhetoric, there´s one thing Buttigieg is proud of: his record as mayor of South Bend. Yet, for a presidential candidate who touted how he "cut the unemployment in half" and helped revitalize a Midwestern city, not all residents are feeling the results of the city´s supposed revitalization. In January, Buttigieg told an NPR host that his administration

Report: Christopher Steele Refusing to Meet With DOJ
Inspector General, Which is Scrutinizing Ex-Spy´s Dossier

Christopher Steele declined to meet with the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General, which is reportedly poised to cast doubt on the veracity of some of the former British spy’s infamous anti-Trump dossier. Steele declined the inspector general’s request on the grounds that it would be improper for him to take part “in an internal Justice Department investigation as a foreign national and former British intelligence agent,” Politico reported Wednesday. The explanation is somewhat ironic given that Steele, a former MI6 officer, provided his anti-Trump research to the FBI as well as to Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

Attorney George Conway, husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, called on Congress to remove President Donald Trump from office following the Thursday release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. “What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion-editorial. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.” The frequent Trump critic went on to argue that Mueller’s findings lay out how the president committed wrongdoing disqualifying him from the presidency. “The investigation that Trump tried to interfere

The Flyers wasted little time in following the Yankees lead. A day after the Daily News reported the Yankees had stopped playing Kate Smith’s 1939 recording of “God Bless America” in the middle of the seventh inning over her racist lyrics, the NHL’s Flyers made the same call. And took the extra step of covering a statue in her honor outside the Wells Fargo Center. “We have recently become aware that several songs performed by Kate Smith contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization,” the Flyers said in a statement. “As we continue to look

For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility. The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace. A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a “pause in politics,” Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.

There have been a lot of viral impersonations of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on social media, but none have been quite this hilarious and adorable. Wearing glasses and bright red lipstick, a young girl brilliantly skewered the freshmen congresswoman in a way that put the current cast of Saturday Night Live to shame.

Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the Republican Party has become “a cult of Trump’s personality.” Schiff said, “I think we have seen a wholesale abdication responsibility by the GOP leadership, by people like Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell who essentially do whatever the president says. And that includes when the president wants to go around the Congress’ power of the purse. But it certainly includes issues of malfeasance, corruption within the administration. There’s been little or no appetite to stand up to the president in any meaningful way, and that really

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Thursday said that there was “passive collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings that conclude there was no conspiracy. Clapper began by defending the foundation of the Russia probe, telling CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that there was “good reason” for intelligence agencies and law enforcement “to be concerned about whether or not there was some kind of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

The voluminous report from special counsel Robert Mueller provides a deeply disturbing portrait of a candidate who welcomed the help of a foreign country to get elected and of a president who repeatedly attempted to undermine Mueller’s investigation. Now it is up to Congress and the American people to objectively digest the report and determine the fate of Donald Trump, who in no conceivable way has been exonerated. Over more than 400 plainly written pages released Thursday, the report provides a readable narrative that describes Trump’s eagerness for any help Russia could provide to help him win the 2016 election.

Pics of the Democratic presidential candidate posted to Twitter late Friday showed Gillibrand doing her makeup and striking poses alongside a drag queen at a bar called Blazing Saddles. “I felt underdressed, so I brought a dress I picked up yesterday—turns out it fit me, but it fit Vana even better! Thank you for having me, ladies!” the New York lawmaker tweeted. Gillibrand is holding a May 2 fundraiser with Marti Gold Cummings, whom the campaign described

Robert de Niro furthered the actor’s feud with President Trump by labeling him a “total loser,” “dumbbell” and “wannabe gangster” in an interview Friday evening. Appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on CBS, Mr. De Niro repeatedly took swipes at the president while discussing his reoccurring role depicting special counsel Robert Mueller on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” “It’s a civic duty. It’s my obligation, my civic obligation to play Mueller,” said Mr. De Niro. “I am hoping that it goes further.
