KOMO News produced the documentary ‘Seattle Is Dying’ that showed how homeless people in Seattle are suffering from drug addiction problems, compounded by criminal justice policies that tolerate repeat offenders. Seattle’s mayor appointed a team to manage the city’s networks of shelters and mental-health services, but the condition continues to worsen. [This documentary is worth watching because, unless you personally have visited these disaster zones, you cannot imagine how bad they are and how fast they are growing. However, you will not find a realistic solution in this documentary. The undertone of the narrative is that the government must do more to help these poor people. The producers missed the point that the more government does to “help” people, the more they become dependent on that help, and the larger the welfare bureaucracy will grow.
Welfare agencies would go out of business if they ever eliminated the demand for welfare, so they have an incentive to allow or even encourage social problems to grow, because that justifies bigger budgets for them each year. The only solution is to rigidly enforce laws that protect everyone from crime and disease to stop the problem. The harsh consequence of such a policy would be that these poor souls would be forced to break their addictions or die. As horrible as that would be, it would be far better than allowing the current trend to continue, which will cause far more people to suffer and die. Except for enforcement of laws to protect life and liberty, the government should be prohibited from doing anything else – and certainly prohibited from allegedly ‘helping’ anyone. That’s not the proper function of the state and it always leads to failure – and tyranny. Helping those in need must be done by individuals and private charitable organizations, which, in the end, will help more people and do it for less money than by government agencies.] -GEG

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP), reportedly funded by Soros, prepared for a clear Trump win with a plan for Joe Biden to refuse to concede, while expecting the military to force Trump out of office.

Last week, FBI Director Chris Wray testified before Congress that his agency looks at Antifa as an ideology or movement, not an organization. Just about everyone in the country except the FBI knows this is not true. The FBI is protecting Antifa, allowing it to create chaos and terror throughout the nation.

The Breonna Taylor case was built on lies, but the truth is that the police knocked and announced themselves, so it was not a no-knock warrant. Breonna’s boyfriend shot first, police returned gunfire and there was cause for the warrant. The BLM narrative is false every time.

US deaths from drug overdoses skyrocketed 21% last year, and for the second straight year dragged down American life expectancy. The government figures put drug deaths at 63,600, up from about 52,000 in 2015. For the first time, the powerful painkiller Fentanyl, and its close opioid cousins, played a bigger role in the deaths than any other legal or illegal drug, surpassing prescription pain pills and heroin. The highest drug death rates were in ages 25 to 54.
