Toddler among 4 wounded in Central District shooting

“SEATTLE — Four people were hurt, including a 2-year-old girl, when gunfire erupted near Seattle’s Central District neighborhood Sunday afternoon, police said.”

“We heard at least 12 maybe even up to two dozen gun shots,” said Dustin Cole, who lives nearby.

If enhanced background checks reduce gun crimes, why does the Puget Sound area press avoid reporting or providing updates on enhanced background checks years after they have been put in place?

WA voters approved enhanced background checks back in 2014.

The new requirements have had time to take hold.

Did the new requirements reduce gun crimes?

Has there been time for newspeople to ask questions?

A well regulated militia?

4 Stories The Puget Sound Press Will Not Question Or Report On

A few years back.

Feels like a sunny & wintry day on Whidbey.

What do the major political parties belive in or stand for? Over the past 50 years or so, they have taken turns in power. Plenty of voting has taken place. Things are not better.

Long election seasons are not bringing out answers to these sorts of questions. Have newspeople had time to look into all this?

Newspeople have moved away from asking questions. Has anyone noticed?

Our questions appear in bold type.

 

Do Americans have an honest relationship with the US Armed Forces?

April 9, 2021 Whidbey News-Times

Letter to the editor:

“There are so many people here on the island who complain about jet noise, but I like it and to me it truly is the sound of freedom and so I thank them for all they do to keep the rest of us safe.”

The Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911. We haven’t won a war since.

Did the advantage of US air power allow the undeclared wars in Iraq or Afghanistan to be prevented, won or shut down?

If The Troops defend American rights and freedoms, what becomes of those freedoms when the US leaves Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, etc., without a victory?

Let’s Honor The Troops In Honest Ways

 

Do the people who operate the local newspaper want us to think of the US Armed Forces as some sort of giant civil rights organization?

Hometown Pride:

“For the past couple of years, the Whidbey News-Times paid the insurance for the Veterans Day Parade, about $200, because it was a small way of saying thank you to the men and women who sacrificed so that we may have our liberties, including our Freedom of Speech.”

Were US troops sent to Vietnam so that Americans could be free to send letters to the editor?

Is there any case in which the US Armed Forces have been sent to distant lands on a mission to protect freedom of speech?

Is protecting freedom of speech even part of training scenarios?

Military Town – Hometown Pride

The US Armed Forces – A Giant Civil Rights Organization?

 

If the CIA (est 1947) serves as an advantage to the US, why does the Department of Defense have such a poor record of winning undeclared wars going back to 1949, the year DOD was established?

Newspeople remain silent.

 

The US should maintain strong and ready military forces.

In some cases, the US Armed Forces provide for our security. That’s as good as it gets.

In terms of American rights and freedoms-The Dept. of Defense has no more say than the Dept. of Agriculture.

 

Legal marijuana, concealed carry of handguns, semi automatic rifle sales, federal minimum drinking age, sports betting, voting rights, bump stock baninterracial marriage, gay marriage, tobacco sales, open container laws, etc.

None of these are linked in any way with The Joint Chiefs of Staff, The Troops, The Dept. of Defense or the outcome of military operations overseas.

As the decades of undeclared/unwon wars stack up (The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.) the greater the cultural urge to glorify people who do, or did time in uniform.

If there is an honest reason to send people away into decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas let’s hear all about it.

Just Be Honest.

Stop with the glorification of undeclared/unwon wars in distant lands.

 

1967

Did the Joint Chiefs of Staff send The Troops to safeguard American freedoms?

Was it the Viet Cong that set up laws in 16 US states to prohibit interracial marriage?

Jet Noise Made Them Free?

 

TV Newspeople Are Lazy – Reporting The News By Press Release

The press release style of news reporting means that a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest event. Newspeople post this statement as is.

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

 

Where did they go?

Iowa – Welcome Home Troops

April 3, 2021 KWWL News

Modified welcome home ceremonies slated for Iowa Army National Guard units

“The Ironman Battalion supported Operation Spartan Shield in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility.”

 

During the Vietnam War, US troops were sent to Vietnam.

Today, the Texas National Guard is sent to the U.S. Central Command Area in support of Operation Spartan Shield.

Newspeople post whatever press release is handed off.

Was there any military emergency, national emergency, draft, or declaration of war, linked to this movement of Iowa National Guard troops?

Has there been time for newspeople to ask questions?

Newspeople remain silent.

 

The press is good for telling everybody to get out and vote.

People could do a better job of voting if they were better informed.

Newspapers are suppressing online comment sections, getting away from asking questions related to public policy and telling us they need more support from subscription and advertising sales.

Got it.

 

Life and Death Scenarios

COVID is a life and death situation for some people. Using or abusing cartel-sourced drugs is a life and death situation for some people.

When news/social media posts are created by federal employees, there’s no need to deal with any awkward/real questions from the press.

These are the guys who are unable to keep cartel product from showing up all over the US:

Have CBP efforts reduced access to cartel product anywhere in the 50 states?

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

Newspeople remain silent.

 

Is Port Angeles CBP staffing and infrastructure at all relevant in keeping heroin and meth from entering the Puget Sound area?

Has Port Angeles CBP been able to intercept any inbound meth or heroin?

Even one time?

Newspeople remain silent.

Local meth news stories here.

Local heroin news stories here.

Port Angeles CBP Staffing and Infrastructure

 

What We Have Now

A $49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security that fails to keep cartel product from showing up all over the US.

Billions of dollars spent every 12 months to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Newspeople ask zero questions in this area.

 

We’d love to see more in the way of newspeople asking questions.

In another State-Run Media/CBP Social Media Post, CBP tells us:

Nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units!

Nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units?

Surely, a free and independent press will step up and ask for clarification on this wild CBP claim.

Away from any border crossing or port of entry:

Hey newspeople, how did 2,224 pounds of meth tied to the Sinaloa cartel enter Riverside County, if nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units?

Why is there a deadly fentanyl problem in Eastern Washington if nothing gets past CBP social media posts?

Giant US Dept. of Homeland Security fails to keep 1,950 pounds of cartel product from showing up in Denton County Texas, far from any border crossing or port of entry:

Jan 27, 2021 The Dallas Morning News

DEA’s Dallas office announces seizure of $45 million in meth, heroin — its largest bust ever

“The drugs — 1,950 pounds valued at $45 million — were sniffed out by a dog during a traffic stop involving a refrigerated tractor-trailer in Denton County on Oct. 8, the DEA said. They had been stashed inside a secret compartment of the truck.”

“Chávez said the meth was smuggled across the U.S.-Mexican border by traffickers working with the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, or CJNG.”

Way to go guys.

Any Lessons Learned?

Anytime there is a plane crash, a loss at sea, or an industrial accident, a thorough investigation takes place. Lessons learned are used to save lives by preventing future incidents.

Any investigation to find out how US Troops at the border, the big El Chapo takedown, opioid lawsuits, REAL ID, Homeland Security grant money, CBP social media posts, strict post 911/GWOT security protocols, and a $49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security failed to keep cartel product from showing up in Denton County Texas?

Newspeople remain silent.

 

Welcome Home Troops

Thanks for risking your ass in Iraq & Afghanistan-working to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Don’t worry-

The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe:

Has General Milley’s Operation Macho Swagger reduced access to cartel product anywhere in the US?

Has there been enough time for newspeople to ask questions?

Newspeople remain silent.

April 1, 2020 C-SPAN

WWII costume reminds us of a time before decades of undeclared/unwon wars stacked up.

The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.

Both major parties and the press are OK with undeclared/unwon wars that never end.

 

April 10, 2021 WXIA-TV

Our area is considered a hub for meth trafficking,” Meadows said. “Interstate 85 is a major route for trafficking between Atlanta and Florida.”

 

Gun Control

Gun control has been here for decades.

President Biden is ready to move forward on this.

President Biden has had a long career in politics. Have previous efforts Re: gun control failed to reduce gun crimes?

Random thoughts:

Has any state, ever in history, required proof of membership in a militia to purchase, transport, or carry, guns and ammo/participate in shooting sports, etc.

If enhanced background checks reduce gun crimes, why does the press avoid reporting or providing updates on enhanced background checks years after they have been put in place?

WA voters approved enhanced background checks back in 2014.

The new requirements have had time to take hold.

Our local press avoids providing updates on the enhanced background checks that came to WA back in 2014.

Did the new requirements reduce gun crimes?

Has there been time for newspeople to ask questions?

A well regulated militia?

WA 2014 Enhanced Background Checks – Newspeople Remain Silent

 

How Do The Troops Defend The Constitution?

Not asking about the oath of enlistment. Asking about what happens after the oath has been taken.

 

Sending US Troops to Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, etc., is somehow defending the constitution?

What becomes of American rights and freedoms and the constitution when the US returns from distant lands without a victory?

Podcast 9 Defending The Constitution?

 

Throw in student loans, healthcare, homeless people camping on the street, housing availability, minimum wage, etc.

Has government intervention helped improve American life in these areas?

What happened?

JFK speaks about the role of the press in a free society:

Today:

A staged and scripted White House news conference. The risk of taking questions from a random group of feisty reporters is completely avoided.

We are big fans of Independent/alternative media here at Oak Bay Starfish.

Alternative media is good about keeping an active comment section up & running. There’s always something to learn or think about from the points others make in the comment section.

Local papers have stripped away all comments from past articles, and removed the opportunity to post comments to new articles.

Various newspapers in the Puget Sound area have gone with this trend.

Suppressing comments, getting away from asking questions related to public policy and telling us they need more support from subscription and advertising sales.

Got it.

People could reject alternative media and be totally good with mainstream media, but it would require the family friendly, hometown pride-oriented local small town papers and TV news folks to try harder.

 

The Puget Sound area press avoids asking questions.

If enhanced background checks reduce gun crimes, why does the press avoid reporting or providing updates on enhanced background checks years after they have been put in place?

Will the press ever do a follow up on the enhanced background check requirements that have been in place for years now?

WA voters approved enhanced background checks back in 2014.

Homeland Security is a scam?

Federal agents swing into action after 12 kilos of cocaine move past strict post 911/GWOT security protocols and federal agents staffing a $49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security, then, on into the Puget Sound area:

April 7, 2021 Q13 Fox News

Feds charge 24 people in big Seattle-area gun, drug bust; 73 firearms seized

The press release style of news reporting means that a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest drug bust/federal grant money award, etc. Newspeople post this statement as is.

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

$49.8 billion is spent every 12 months on the US Dept. of Homeland Security.

The Dept. of Homeland Security fails to keep cartel product from showing up all over the US.

Almost purchased a six pack of Ninkasi Total Domination IPA in bottles. Could not find any date on the package indicating when it was bottled.

I prefer the bottled on, rather than the enjoy before, date format.

Some breweries ( Georgetown Brewing Co and Fremont Brewing ) are very good at showing an easy to find and easy to read date that reveals when the can or bottle was filled with ale. These are the brews I bring home.

 

Pet Peeve:

Beer websites have an honor system these days. You must make up an over 21 birth date in order to study brewery offerings. Underage people who desire to view a brewery web site will be stopped by all this?

We drank underage for years with no help whatsoever from the internet.

Back in the old days-each of the 50 states was free to set its own drinking age. It was legal to drink as a teen in some states.

Went to high school in Kitsap County in the late 70s.

We started drinking when we were about 15.

Fake IDs (completely fake-not made to look like anything real) worked about 50% of the time to buy beer.

We never went without since about age 15.

Making mention of these memories is not to defend operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, legal or illegal drugs or marijuana.

 

Who has the best IPAs? WA, OR or others?

I have enjoyed Melvin IPA, but it is hard to find a date on the packaging.

An occaision of deep religious significance.

A time to enjoy, even for people who are not religious.

Maybe it’s a day for family traditions. A day for generations to gather. A day for kids to have fun. A day to reflect on a new season.

Unlike Christmas, there seems to be little marketing pressure from retailers. Christmas merchandise begins to go up in stores in late August. Easter is more of a take it or leave it event. No scolding about what to say when exchanging Easter greetings. No obligation to make a gift list. Not a federal holiday. No need for a giant government to pretend to play a role here.

No unusually crowded stores, shipping outlets or ferry and air terminals because of Easter.

Good Stuff.

Both major parties are good with wasteful and ineffective Homeland Security Spending.

Mar 27, 2021 Montana Senator Steve Daines

Several years back, access to cold, sinus and allergy meds was restricted in order to make it more difficult to produce meth in Hometown, USA.

Cartels knew that politicians spending billions of dollars of other people’s money every 12 months to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things would not keep them from moving product into all 50 states.

 

No matter what political party or personality is in power.

For years now, CBP has failed to keep cartel-sourced meth out of Montana.

Back in Feb of 2019

Montana – Homeland Security Meth Racket Rolls On

Federal agents swing into action after meth moves past strict post 911/GWOT security protocols and federal agents staffing a $40.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security, then, on into Montana:

February 14, 2019 KRTV News video:

Montana’s Drug Superhighway: How traffickers conceal carloads of drugs from police

“Billings serves as the host agency for HIDTA, but it’s a multi-jurisdictional task force composed of local officers from city, county and federal organizations such as the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Homeland Security.”

 

Federal cash for Montana after meth flows past federal agents staffing a $40.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security, then on into local communities:

“The task force is federally funded through grants from the Office of National Drug Control Policy.”

Oct 25, 2018 Missoulian DOJ awards MHP $1 million for anti-meth operations in Montana

“The U.S. Department of Justice announced its award to MHP Thursday, from its Office of Community Oriented Policing. The grant will fund additional troopers, equipment and training specifically to combat incoming meth trafficking. Highway Patrol Chief Tom Butler said in the statement that Montana’s meth is largely sourced from Mexico.”

Homeland Security Vote of Confidence:

K9 screenings and vehicle inspections for customized switches and compartments are effective when conducted by law enforcement authorities in Montana.

Why don’t these same practices work at the Mexico border?

“Task force officers are also learning that vehicles with aftermarket switches and compartments are also being used to cross the border into Mexico and come back up to Montana, likely several times.”

K-9 Screenings After Meth Moves Past $40.6 Billion US Dept. of Homeland Security

 

“CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.”

Hey newspeople,

How do you keep terrorists and their weapons out if there is no inspection of rail shipments entering the US?

Feb 27, 2019 The Canadian Press

Police find meth smuggled into Canada through new Ford cars built in Mexico

“Police say they have busted an alleged drug smuggling operation where methamphetamine was being hidden in new cars built in Mexico that were then transported by rail to Canada.”

“Ontario Provincial Police say employees at four Ford dealerships discovered the drugs stashed within spare tires that didn’t match the cars.”

“Police say they found 180 kilograms of meth during the investigation.”

More here.

 

Welcome Home Troops

Thanks for risking your ass in Iraq & Afghanistan-working to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Don’t worry-

The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe:

 

The press never gets around to asking what the major parties stand for or believe in.

Both major parties are good with undeclared/unwon wars that never end.

The Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911.

We haven’t won a war since.

The Department of Defense track record for winning undeclared wars goes back to 1949.

Fusion center swings into action after post 911 surveillance state, $49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security and fusion centers appear to have played no role in preventing Atlanta shootings:

Mar 27, 2021 KTVQ – Q2 News

Montana crime analysts monitoring hate crimes at home in wake of Atlanta shootings

 

No Credible Threat?

The War on Terror has prompted law enforcement authorities to calm the public by looking into the future and announcing that no credible threat exists.

On the job in Philadelphia after mass shooting in San Bernardino, California:

December 2, 2015 Action News on 6abc video

Police: No credible threat to Philadelphia following San Bernardino shooting

“The head of counterterrorism for the Philadelphia Police Department says there are no specific or credible threats against the city.”

Where was the threat forecast prior to the latest incident?

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it-surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, mass casualty shootings, etc.

Post 911 surveillance state (fusion centers, license scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, & social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, etc.) appears to have played no role in preventing these crimes:

First Biden News Conference

The event appeared to go pretty well.

It came off as staged and scripted.

The risk of taking questions from a random group of feisty reporters was completely avoided.

Not here to poke at Joe Biden.

Let’s look at public policy, access to public information and the efforts, or lack of efforts by the press to work hard to keep people informed.

 

Made For TV

Oct 7, 2016 Baltimore Sun News Video:

Expect more artifice than authenticity in ‘town hall’ debate

“Don’t be fooled. TV town halls today have almost nothing to do with the real meaning of the term.”

“Town halls did not really become part of political TV fabric until the 1990s, when Bill Clinton’s team started using them in the 1992 campaign because the candidate was so good at seeming to connect with participants — especially when they spoke about hardship or pain. That Team Clinton staged its own town halls and participated in others produced by cable channels — like MTV.”

 

Both major parties are OK with:

Undeclared/unwon wars that never end, wasteful Homeland Security spending, the drug war, federal prohibition of marijuana, treating 18-20 year old adults as 2nd class citizens, an ongoing glorification of military service, and newspeople who take a pass on asking questions on these issues.
