Seattle Elites Coordinated A PR Campaign In Response To ‘Seattle Is Dying´

Original Article

Posted By: Ron_lfp, 4/20/2019 10:27:22 AM

Last month I wrote about an extraordinary news special produced by station KOMO in Seattle. Provocatively titled “Seattle is Dying” the hour-long special argued that the homeless problem in the city was a disaster for residents thanks to policies that let people with addictions or mental problems live in a law-free zone on the city’s streets... Earlier this month, leaked documents revealed that a group of prominent nonprofits—the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Campion Advocacy Fund, the Raikes Foundation, and the Ballmer Group—hired a PR firm, Pyramid Communications, to conduct polling, create messaging

Comments:

Everyone can see the results of the establisment allowing violating of laws by [quote] homeless [/quote] people. The bad problems are by people who choose to live on the street - drug addicts and mentally ill. A TV special showed it. Then the powers who know better than us mounted a propaganda campaign and attacked the well respected reporter.

Seattle is controlled by ANIFFA, socialist, druggies, and communist. Seattle is indeed the S-hole of America.

Why address the problem when it’s so much more fun to play “Stump The Chumps”?

Having lived near there for 30 years, it was sad to watch the decline of this city. I think it accelerated with the wto riots in 1999. The city fathers catered to these anarchists, laying out the welcome mat for every cultural misfit in the country to feel at home there. The result of their inbreeding currently inhabits the streets and sidewalks.

#5-I was thinking the same thing about the ‘99 WTO riots. There we no repercussions for the vandals, and it just emboldened them all.

Leftist "know" that their leftist ideas are the ultimate answer; delivered, inarguable truth (at least in their literally feeble minds), so there is never any feedback loop.
Never any recognition of the disastrous real world results of their policies, never any adjustment (other than doubling down, doing MORE leftist things) when the results are inevitably the opposite of what they say they intended to accomplish. Such inflexibility leads me to question if they actually intended what they claimed to have intended.

Never adjust, never acknowledge failure, just hire a PR firm to cover up your failures.

A tiny fraction of leftists can think, are willing to see reality, and eventually recognize the failures of leftist policies, and they become conservatives. Dr. Thomas Sowell is a notable example.

But most are small minds, unable to see failure and reject their leftist ideas.

Like so much else these days, homelessnous has become a big-dollar industry. Lots of civic organizations, government bureaucracies, and "non-profits" dependent on contributions, government grants, and other sources of revenue for their budgets and growth. Like the deep swamp, they´re good at maintaining the status quo.

The only thing that the station didn´t really touch on which is at the root of Seattle´s problems is LIBERAL POLICIES. They managed to sidestep that very well. Out of a deep love for her grandmother who lives in assisted living in a suburb of Seattle, my daughter lives there, and the tales she tells would curl your hair literally.

I guess the taxpayers also got to pay for some of this PR effort. It´s amazing to me that the left fails to see that welcoming and subsidizing the homeless is doing them no favors. They make the suffering worse in the long run while congratulating themselves on their moral superiority.

Ocasio-Cortez says growing cauliflower
in community gardens is 'colonial'

Posted by NorthernDog 5/21/2019 11:36:22 AM
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.
Nevada passes National Popular Vote
bill in bid to upend Electoral College

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.
Four in 10 Americans Embrace
Some Form of Socialism

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters
A federal judge’s ‘tell’ in his order
forcing Trump to turn over financial records

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this
What's Mitt Romney's problem? 22 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 5/21/2019 2:43:23 PM
After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote.

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies
Posted by MissMolly 5/22/2019 3:57:46 AM
Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all
House Judiciary Chairman Nadler: Trump

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"
Self-driving trucks begin mail

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
