Domestic Violent Extremist Bill HB 1333 In Legislature Again!

 

Updated 2/19/24

By Cindy Alia

This bill is dead for this session, and deservedly so as it is the most discriminatory bill ever produced by legislators.  This is the kind of bill that would have ripped our society apart and was never worth consideration let alone the waste of resources and time spent on preparing it.  As an electorate we must do better at seeing principled candidates who recognize the differences between right and wrong elected regardless of party affiliation. 

Tsunami of Bills!!! Even though a "short" or 60 day session has begun on January 8, to end on March 8, the bills are pouring in like there is no end in sight!

Even though a "short" or 60 day session has begun on January 8, to end on March 8, the bills are pouring in like there is no end in sight!  Bills unworthy of special attention last session are attempting to be included in this session, as we run a bicameral or 2-year legislative cycle.  All bills introduced last year technically are viable this year.  Unfortunately many new bills were also introduced this year to bring the total of introduced bills to date for the two sessions to 3,053as of this writing.  Gratefully, all bills will be "dead" or not acted on next session, and to be in play would need to be reintroduced to go through the entire legislative process.  This seems to me to be a great recipe for disfunction!  

Government Pet Projects – Special Interests Get Special Laws

By Cindy Alia

8/30/23

When government works at becoming a savior, what can go wrong? Despite years of government spending on “solutions”, the problem of the “unhoused” is still widespread in our state.  Governmental claims for ending homelessness often require throwing money at solutions without accountability for results.  A case in point is the Pierce County project to create a “Community First” tiny house village, which appears to be patterned after a communistic utopia, but which is an impractical scheme for social improvement in rural Pierce County.

Rewilding Unleashed!

By Steve Busch

REWILDING UNLEASHED!  BIGGEST LAND LOCK UP IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES IS NOW UNDERWAY!!!!

ON APRIL 3, 2023, BLM BOSS TRACY STONE-MANNING ISSUED A NEW RULE THAT REVERSED A LONG STANDING POLICY THAT ALLOWS FOR MULTIPLE USE OF PUBLIC LANDS.

IF THE NEW BLM RULE IS ALLOWED TO STAND, CONTINUED MULTIPLE USES OF FEDERAL LANDS WILL BE EFFECTIVELY ENDED IN FAVOR OF ALLOWING WELL FINANCED "ENVIRONMENTAL" ORGANIZATIONS TO PURCHASE MILLIONS OF ACRES OF "CONSERVATION LEASES" ON FEDERAL LAND.

WESTERN GOVERNORS FROM MONTANA, IDAHO, WYOMING, UTAH, NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA, ARE PETITIONING CONGRESS TO PASS LEGISLATION SPONSORED BY UTAH'S MIKE SIMPSON THAT WILL REVERSE BLM'S ATTEMPT TO EFFECTIVELY DECAPITATE MULTIPLE USE AND JEOPARDIZE AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE.

Last Minute Legislative Proposal to Triple Your Property Taxes!

by Cindy Alia 4/12/2023

Updated 2/9/24

Great news! SB 5770 is tabled and is a dead bill for this session!

Thanks to the strong leadership of the Republican Senate, and especially to your responses to the urgent calls to action on SB 5770 which triples calculations on your property taxes!  Thank you Senators Short, Braun, and Linda Wilson for sounding the alarm to the citizens of Washington State!

Two of the bill's sponsors backed out of the bill because of public pressure, and the bill would not have had the support to pass. The bill sponsor tabled the bill and it will not get a vote on the floor! The bill is dead!

CAPR Bills of Concern Legislative Wrap

By Cindy Alia

4/26/23

The 105 "long session" is over as of April 23.  It was indeed a long session with too many bills introduced and some carelessly passed.  Even so, the legislature failed to pass a law regarding illegal drug posession, leaving behind a legacy of careless disregard for those suffering addiction and those suffering because so many are addicted.  In essence because a bill was not passed all drugs in this state are now legal.

That aside, the CAPR bills of concern will be updated below.  Please be sure to thank your legislator if he voted the way you would have liked him to vot

Deceit, Harm, and the Loss of Human Values

By Cindy Alia

February 21, 2023

Two more bills that dehumanize and deceive us.  Lets look at what they really want to say.

As discussed in a recent blog, Value Life to Value Property Rights, including abortion as a constitutionally protected natural right goes against the ideal of positive rights creating the foundation of constitutional protections.  It is still urged SJR 8202 is not passed, though it is currently eligible for a vote on the senate floor.  But there are two other bills we must look at to defend our status as human beings worthy of establishing and keeping our liberties.  We must value humanity to value property.
