Once again, Republican Cathy McMorris Rodgers in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 5th Congressional District fails to speak out. A few days ago, Trump used a Native American name, specifically Pocahontas, to denigrate Senator Elizabeth Warren because of her very distant Native American Heritage. Most of you probably see why this is racist. It is using someones name in vain, and choosing a historical minority person as the name.
Actually, the actual historical details of Pocahontas possibly quite gruesome. Much of it is no Disney story. She was kidnapped and allegedly raped and poisoned by white settlers. I sincerely doubt that our idiot President was aware of that, but it just adds to the insult.
From Senator Lisa Brown who is running against McMorris Rodgers . . . Read the rest of this entry

Look folks, our U.S. economy is doing well. There is no need to cut taxes for the rich to stimulate investment into the U.S. economy. There is plenty investment capital, but Cathy McMorris Rodgers and the other Republicans in the U.S. House or Representatives voted again to give another huge tax break for the rich. Simply stated, the only reason they cut taxes was to do a political favor for the corporate and super rich Republican base. For more information about her, read here. Read the rest of this entry

Republican Pastor Mark Hamilton, who was essentially called a liar by one of his church members, was thrown off the ballot and found ineligible to run for Spokane City Council in 2013. Why?

Washington State Representative Matt Shea (R) of Spokane Valley wants to change how the State divides up its electoral college delegates for the U.S. President. Currently, the majority winner of Washington States’ popular vote gets all the delegates. Matt Shea wants to divide the electoral college delegates between Eastern and Western Washington. Shea’s idea would likely benefit Republican candidates since Democratic candidates for President usually win the majority of popular votes in the State of Washington and Republicans usually win the majority of votes in Eastern Washington.

State Rep. Matt Shea Pulled Gun on Spokane Motorist
It is a sad day when someone has to be afraid for their life because of a threat of violence. It makes it even worse when the threat of violence comes from an elected official who (is supposed to) hold the public trust. This is what happened in November, 2011. It was Republican State Representative Matt Shea, Spokane Valley, WA, 4th Legislative District, who pulled a loaded handgun on Leroy Norris of Spokane County. Here is a YouTube video that we produced about the incident involving Matt Shea. Spokane is safer without him. Read the rest of this entry

Todd Mielke is running for re-election for Spokane County Commission, and his past may be catching up with him.

In 1995 Republican Todd Mielke resigned from the Washington State Legislature to become a high paid lobbyist for big pharmaceutical companies and the tobacco industry. A few years later the Republican ran for the Spokane County Commission. Read the rest of this entry

Nancy McLaughlin candidate for the Washington State Legislature was caught faking the support of the well-liked Ben Stuckart.

Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart said Thursday that he didn’t give City Councilwoman Nancy McLaughlin permission to use a picture of him on a campaign mailer for state Senate. Read the rest of this entry

Rob McKenna has been making his rounds with the outlandish claim that he won the first debate with candidate Jay Inslee for Governor of Washington. The debate occurred in Spokane two weeks ago. Maybe McKenna thought it was a contest to be the most annoying, or the most elitist, or perhaps who could bash middle-class American’s the hardest.
To quote one audience member who was at the Jay Inslee vs. Rob McKenna debate, Rob McKenna was apparently “blaming homeowners for the financial crisis.”
