Ferguson demands cooperation with NOT cooperating with the federal government

If you think that Sideshow cares about rights or the rule of law, you would be mistaken.

Let’s say the FBI comes to your home without a warrant and they ask to come inside and have a look around. What you tell them is completely up to you. You *could* let them in or you *could* tell them not without a warrant. It is your decision to make.

Now imagine the State of Washington has told you that if you allow the FBI into your home without a warrant, the AG’s Office will ruin you financially.

Granted, it’s not a perfect analogy but this is essentially what Sideshow has done to Greyhound; interfered with the company’s right to decide for itself whether it wants to cooperate with federal law enforcement. It’s disgraceful actually.

Who does Sideshow work for? (2/18/20 ed.)

A King County Superior Court judge recently rejected a legal challenge to title only bills.

You will never guess who provided the judge with the rationale for rejecting the challenge. Your very own “I’m fighting for the people!” Sideshow Bob Ferguson. Ferguson sided with the legislature instead of fighting for transparency and the ensuring the governed have actually given their consent.

Make sure you think about this: A member of the executive branch convinced a member of the judicial branch that some things the legislative branch does is beyond judicial review.

Our system of government provides checks and balances on each branch of government. Ferguson’s unwillingness to check the power of the legislature to the detriment of the people of Washington disqualifies him to continue serving as our attorney general.

As attorney general I will put an end to title only bills. I will work for you, the people of Washington.

The hypocrisy of Bob Ferguson, February 12, 2020 edition

In one of Sideshow’s countless lawsuits against the Trump Administration Ferguson implied that the federal government lacked compassion for children. Yesterday Sideshow patted himself on the back when legislation—that he asked for—advanced in the legislature, which would prohibit solitary confinement for juveniles who have been incarcerated.

As it stands it is exceedingly difficult in Washington to keep a juvenile in custody, even for very serious offenses.

Let’s say a juvenile commits an armed robbery and ends up being detained. If that juvenile, while in custody, continues to violate the law by assaulting, or even sexually assaulting, another person whether a fellow detainee, a staff member, or their own lawyer, how is that juvenile supposed to be managed?

Under Ferguson’s legislation, it would be illegal to isolate that juvenile from victims or potential victims. The state has a duty to protect everyone in its care or custody, regardless of how that person came to be there. Sideshow’s legislation mandates that predators have access to victims—literally a captive audience.

Where is Ferguson’s compassion for children?

US DOJ starts to crackdown on criminal illegal alien sanctuaries

From US AG William Barr’s press conference yesterday:

“… we are meticulously reviewing the actions of certain district attorneys who have adopted policies of charging foreign nationals with lesser offenses for the express purpose of avoiding the federal immigration consequences of those nationals’ criminal conduct. In pursuing their personal ambitions and misguided notions of equal justice, these district attorneys are systematically violating the rule of law and may even be unlawfully discriminating against American citizens.”

Who is the only candidate for Washington State Attorney General who has publicly stated that sanctuary policies discriminate against US citizens and legal residents? (Hint: it’s me)

Do you want to help take back our state?

I’m often asked by people, what can they do to help? As a first-time candidate (not a career politician!) not affiliated with a political party the first thing that springs to mind is money. Every little bit helps. “We the People” are up against massive money machines.

People can help spread the word of my campaign. Not everyone is on Facebook or Twitter. I have yard signs available.

If you have a special skill or interest and willing to donate some time, I’ll take that too.

But I am convinced that the single best thing you can do for me, for yourself, for our state, is to make sure EVERYONE you know is registered to vote and casts ballots in August and November. If you do that we will have a new governor, lt. governor and attorney general next year.

ICYMI

From President Trump’s State of the Union last night:

“Senator Thom Tillis has introduced legislation to allow Americans like Jody to sue Sanctuary Cities and States when a loved one is hurt or killed as a result of these deadly policies. I ask the Congress to pass the Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act immediately. The United States of America should be a sanctuary for law-abiding Americans — not criminal aliens!”

As I have said repeatedly, the law-abiding are not second class citizens.

The far-left cares more for criminals than the innocent

I will never understand how the party that advocates for post-birth abortions can take the position that a person who commits a heinous crime and who has the right to appeal their conviction must have their life spared.
