USA: Seattle Police Begin Gun Confiscations: No Laws Broken, No Warrant, No Charges

Seattle Police Begin Gun Confiscations: No Laws Broken, No Warrant, No Charges:

A man in Seattle has had his gun confiscated by police after breaking no laws. The police took his gun without a warrant and without pressing any charges.  Tyranny has officially taken hold on American soil.

This sets a precedent that government can now forcefully take guns away from an individual without a crime being committed or an arrest being made and without a warrant. In the name of fear and political exploitation of anti-gun rhetoric, a citizen’s Second Amendment rights have been ripped away from him by the government.

The new “red flag” law, which has taken hold in other states already, allows the courts and law enforcement to take away guns from individuals they deem are dangerous and they’ve just begun the confiscationA man living in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington became the first individual in the state to have his firearm confiscated without any formal arrest or charges.  The man was not identified by authorities.

Unexpected snow in Seattle

Unexpected snow in Seattle:

3 Nov 2017 – It’s a little bit unusual to have snow this time of year in the Seattle area, said meteorologist Dana Felton. Last year on this date, it was 65 degrees.

Temperatures dropped by 10 degrees in one hour at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Friday, bringing snow to “pretty much everywhere” outside Seattle, said Felton.

The snow caused “significant” delays at the airport, as well.

Seattle Passes Measure To “Tax The Rich”; There’s Just One Problem…

Seattle Passes Measure To “Tax The Rich”; There’s Just One Problem…:

After passing a $15 minimum wage intended to help low-income workers in Seattle, economists at the University of Washington produced a rather extensive research report a few weeks ago highlighting how the legislation was actually doing the exact opposite as companies were simply choosing to automate menial tasks, move businesses out of Seattle in search of more attractive wages rates or simply cutting back on employees to offset increased labor costs (we covered the study here: Seattle Min Wage Hikes Crushing The Poor: 6,700 Jobs Lost, Annual Wages Down $1,500 – UofW Study).

Unhappy with their failed experiment, the Seattle City Council decided to pursue a more direct form of income redistribution: a massive income tax on the rich.

Geology of the Seattle area (Video)

Geology of the Seattle area – Video:

If you’ve ever lived in the Seattle area, you will find this video by geologist Nick Zentner absolutely fascinating.

The geology of the Seattle, Washington, area is a direct result of multiple glacial advances that left drumlins, outwash, glacial troughs, and scattered glacial erratics as evidence of their passage.

Old tidelands filled by early residents of Seattle are now home to the SODO district, an active commercial area where both the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners stadiums are located.

This video, entitled “Geology of Seattle and the Puget Sound,” was originally published on March 2, 2015

Tom Foster (http://HUGEfloods.com) and Nick Zentner (Central Washington University) have been hiking together in Washington for years. ’Geology of Seattle’ is part of an “I-90 Rocks” video series.
