The group is “an aggregator of people who defend our constitutional rights” who are about “pro-rights.”  Their aim is to educate, organize and activate people with Constitutional, pro-rights information.  It is not designed to be legal advice.

Co-Presidents are Larry Godt and Tom Jonez, Mike Brown, VP of Operations, with guest speakers: Jesse Young, 26th District Rep, Mike Rich, Senior Pastor and a video from a pharmaceutical business manager.

Introduced dignitaries present were; State Sen Jim McCune (2nd District), State Sen Chris Gildon (25th District), Pierce County Councilwoman Amy Cruver, Rep Kelly Chambers (25th District), and Rep Jesse Young (26th District).

The main instructor was Jesse Young.  Young expressed during the workshop that; 

“The extent by which the governor is exercising his emergency powers is beyond the scope of law.”

A workshop leader made the point  that with the governor’s “proclamations” that he is trying to make “rule of law” instead of leaving that to the legislative branch.  The governor is to execute the law, not proclaim it.  It would have to survive Constitutional, legal and/or Judicial review or get the agreement of the legislature to have the effect of law.

The workshop was during the time of the governor’s emergency powers (8/13/2021) so the audience was instructed that this mandate did not fall under the rule of law.  According to Gov. Inslee, the last vaccination for state, school staff and health care provider’s must be done by October 4th to meet the fully vaccinated plus two weeks mandate by October 18th.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-10 vaccine was FDA approved on 8/23/2021 (U.S. Food & Drug Admin).

During the workshop Young discussed how people of faith hold the right to be free from discrimination because faith is a type of creed found in the state law under Declaration of civil rights (RCW 49.60.030).  He said, 

“people of faith have the right to obtain and hold employment without discrimination as well as having the right to engage with health maintenance organizations without discrimination.”

In these two instances he said the governor is “doubly wrong.” 

Young pointed out how the legislature changed the law in January to support the governor’s emergency declaration to last beyond 30 days because the majority party in the legislature voted “to make us remote” so in the first week of January they changed the law (RCW.06.022 – State of emergency – Powers of governor pursuant to proclamation (4)) that extended the emergency order.  

“The legislature will not check the governor so therefore we have lost that power right now, that’s why the legislature is not checking the governor.  They changed the law.”

Then he pointed out in the second clause section (g) that the emergency proclamation cannot conflict with federal law, or conflicts with the First Amendment.  He discussed how people feel they have not been given due process when they are threatened with losing their jobs unless they get “the jab.”  

Specifically Washington state declares in Article 1, section 3, that;

“No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

This state law aligns with federal law in the 1st and 14th Amendments.

Young said that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states that it is unlawful employment practice to discriminate against individuals because of their religion.  

He said;

“You have a protected RIGHT to be free from discrimination, especially as it comes to the practice of your religion.”

He cited the Freedom from discrimination clause where;

“Any person deeming himself or herself injured by any act in violation of this chapter shall have a civil action in a court…,”

authorized by this chapter or the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964, or the Federal Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988.

One Washington was formed at Harborview Fellowship  in Gig Harbor that was the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit against the governor when he tried to impose a lock down on churches in 2020 to open back up churches, and they won.  

Young said that every time the governor relented on restrictions on churches in that court case, it happened the day before a particular court case they were about to have.  Finally the governor made a motion to dismiss the case “to save face”.  He went to the federal judge and wrote,  “we have never enforced that mandate on churches, we never will enforce it and we never could enforce it because it’s not a legal mandate.”  

“The governor is playing a game to try and get you to correct yourselves outside of the course of law.”

The takeaway here is that;

“Governor Inslee has no authority to change federal law.”

Building a Company

I have been writing six stories a week, trying to get a company off the ground and that is why this blog has not had much activity for awhile.

For the last two months I’ve been “reporting” on Washington state news, mostly in my area of Bellevue, just outside of Seattle.

Working to build a news company takes work and I miss being here. Talking about God and how wonderful He is.

Recently I gave notice for one of my jobs; I’ve been working three jobs up until recently. My every-other-weekend job will end in another few weeks to give me much-needed breathing room. I will be working full-time days until I get this journalism company off the ground.

Once in awhile, maybe once-a-week, I can get back to podcasting where I post to this blog as well as my other podcasting sites.

I have no idea how long it will take to one day only do journalism. Where I don’t have to do a day job or seek contract work.

May God Almighty bless you, your families and your friends and watch over you in this challenging, upside-down world.

Vaccination mandate not going over well in Washington state (videos)

I attended a rally at the state Capitol today with protesters holding signs in protest of Governor Jay Inslee who has mandated that state and health workers in Washington must be fully vaccinated by October under threat of losing their jobs.

Another group in that rally was the Washingtonians to Recall Inslee, our governor. They are getting ready to go before the Supreme court to present the court with charges against Inslee to have him recalled.

Here are videos I took today (Saturday).

Do You Believe In Spiritual Warfare? Watch This Video.

Spiritual demonic warfare is a real, physical experience

I could not help but post this video. It reminds me of similar experiences I have had. No one believes this could be real unless they’ve become Christians and so understand the reality of demonic warfare.

Watch at the 13 second mark. The person in the video is a security guard. The video is introduced by the mayor of a city in Colombia. The language is Spanish. I first found this video posted on YouTube by “Revista Semana” in an email I received from newly subscribing to Coast to Coast with George Noory (link to the post is here), since I want to watch more about UFO’s and am still reading Pastor Billy Crone’s book about UFO’s which is really fantastic, by the way (see my earlier post about this).

Anyway watch this for yourself and tell me what you think.

Redmond Hotel for Homeless (Washington) – video

I read from King County Washington website, “Redmond hotel is latest King County Health Through Housing purchase” to share community concerns from Nextdoor app where this raised over 300 comments from concerned citizens on both sides of the issue: they are for or against it and why there’s concern, one of which the schools nearby. Please excuse the blurriness; I’m getting used to several share screen applications and this one doesn’t work so I’ll be finding another app to use.

Targeting International Blog Site (video)

Here I talk about my other blog, “Targeting International” that I created a few years ago but have left unattended.

I never had the time to update it but feel that with the recent interest that’s growing in the area of UFO’s I wanted to give my opinions about why some people may have been hearing voices or seeing things “that are not real” and being diagnosed as psychotic or other diagnoses. There may be another explanation. I’m going to hopefully be able to continue investigating several reasons for these strange experiences.
