State AG disappointed as Sea-Tac prepares to enforce travel ban | MyNorthwest.com

Sea-Tac Airport will begin enforcing part of the Trump administration’s travel ban beginning Thursday. The ban affects people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. If people from those countries don’t have a bona fide connection to someone in the United States they’ll likely be turned away.

[Ed.: Ah, poor little Sideshow Bob Ferguson has to be really butt-hurt now after this spanking at the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court and we don’t expect it to get any better for the AG (AKA “Aspiring Governor”) when they makes their final ruling later in the year. The law is so stunningly clear that even liberal activists on the U.S. Supreme Court couldn’t side with this blinding display of juris-ignorance from our activist A.G. Oh, and this picture looks like a pouty Frank Burns from M*A*S*H… “Ferret Face”, totally!]

[Ed.: If the college’s president had any stones, he would never have let this come to this. The First Amendment does protect speech, but it does not protect unlawful speech such as incitement, threats, or slander. This professor is at least a principled lefty who believes in the Constitution and would not be cowed by these student bullies who want to tell others what to do.]

Just Want Privacy got a large, last minute donation to gather signatures. But will it be enough to take on its opposition?

[Ed.: This is a bridge too far and this agenda to ‘define deviancy down’ needs to be stopped here. Letting boys/men shower with women/girls because they “identify” as female should be rebuffed with everything we have. There are lecherous straight men (which is 99% of them – just ask them, they’ll tell you) that could use this as a convenient excuse to see females in the showers at schools, in private areas of recreation facilities and even in restrooms. The minute someone goes to the ultimate level of sacrifice by having their equipment removed is when we can assume someone really identifies as a female. Not until then!]
