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.

Fossil Fuel donations and the Green New Deal

I was asked today if I would reject all donations from the fossil fuel industry and pledge to support the Green New Deal.

In a word: No.

Full disclosure, I have not yet received any donations from the fossil fuel industry.

My pledge is that I will work for the people of Washington, not the bureaucracy of the “Washington State Swamp.” I will accept donations from just about any lawful source to accomplish that goal, but am publicly stating up front that donations absolutely will not entitle any person or special interest group any preferential treatment.

For all the feigned concern about the climate, I find it interesting that the State of Washington has taken no action regarding all the RVs in Seattle dumping their sewage tanks onto city streets and the recent news of a Seattle business illegally dumping chemicals into a sewer. In the latter case the federal government was taking enforcement action, but not the State of Washington or the City of Seattle.

As I have said many times before, there is plenty of work that needs to be done here at home. I want everyone to have clean water and a good environment, and that can be accomplished without signing onto the climate hysteria that has taken a number of forms since at least the 1970s.

Merry Christmas!

I am truly thankful for all the gifts I’ve received in my life.

I am thankful for and humbled by all those who have given me the gift of their support in my run for attorney general, whether volunteering their time, feedback/constructive criticism or financial donations.

From my family to yours: Merry Christmas!

It’s that time of year when the world falls in love
Every song you hear seems to say
“Merry Christmas, may your New Year dreams come true”
And this song of mine in three-quarter time
Wishes you and yours the same thing too
