One Dead, Another In Critical Condition After Latest Seattle CHOP Shooting

Published

on

Remember when the mayor of Seattle said that everything was peaceful inside the CHOP, or Capitol Hill Organized Protest Zone, that radical left-wingers invaded and took over in the downtown area of the city?

If I remember correctly, it was referred to as potentially being the “summer of love?” Well, that’s a total crock. Several shootings have occurred within the zone, as well as a few alleged sexual assaults.

There was another shooting over the weekend between two males that left one dead and the other in critical condition in the intensive care unit of a local hospital.

This whole situation is an unmitigated disaster. Officials in Seattle need to order the use of force to barge in and shut this whole anarchic mess down and bring law and order to this part of the city. Now.

Two males suffering gunshot wounds arrived at Harborview Medical Center’s Emergency Department.

The shooting victim who arrived at the hospital at 3:30 a.m. from the CHOP area on Capitol Hill in Seattle has unfortunately died, Susan Gregg, a hospital spokeswoman, told Fox News. He was transported to the hospital via Seattle Fire Department medics.

The other male arrived at about 3:15 a.m. by private vehicle. He remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit.

The Seattle Police Department took to Twitter where they announced they were investigation a shooting near 12th Avenue and Pike Street where two people had been injured.

That particular corner is two blocks away from Cal Anderson Park, the location where protesters initially camped out in tents in order to occupy the area that was first known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

As time has progressed, the encampment has become much more difficult to manage, drawing in a large population of homeless people and causing tons of violence to erupt in the area.

Organizers of this protest stated they are attempting to move things into the abandoned East Precinct. This is the location where most of the movement’s leadership currently resides. Leadership is using this as a means to have a bargaining chip with the city to achieve the police reforms they are demanding.

Efforts by the city to dismantle CHOP were stopped on Friday when protesters did what they do best, which is essentially nothing, laying down in the middle of the street to prevent Seattle Department of Transportation crews and other heavy machinery from removing their barricades around the occupied zone. After two hours, the crews left without dismantling anything.

Well, it seems that diplomacy isn’t working. What these people are doing is essentially making terrorist ransom demands. No amount of negotiation will convince these people to stop. It’s time to go beyond this nonsense and call on police and National Guard to dispatch this occupying crew.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
