You’ve certainly seen enough video footage of the unruly union mobs in Madison, WI for the last two months. Well, the SEIU has taken its mob show on the road and, like the pioneers of old, headed West.
Demonstrators were forced out of a legislative gallery and stopped by state troopers outside Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire’s office, said Robert Calkins, spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.
About 400 protesters were in the building, loud but orderly, Calkins told CNN. Some tried to rush to Gregoire’s office.
“There were a group that planned to be arrested and they were accommodated,” Calkins said. “We’re happy to have people come down and express their opinion, but we want it to be safe for everyone involved.”
One protester kicked an officer and elbowed another and was booked on two counts of third-degree assault, Calkins said. Sixteen protesters were charged with disorderly conduct and released.
Below are two clips of the confrontation in Olympia.

Russia is challenging our authority, and will do so even more with their pet candidate taking the nomination. Terror on the rise. Jobs. The economy. The debt. Even American drinking water. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Today I had the privilege of being on CNNi opposite Matt Schlapp of the ACU, who made what I thought was the best possible case for uniting behind Trump. Unfortunately, it was utterly unconvincing to me, because it doesn’t really address the core concerns that many #NeverTrump people have with Trump. The problem isn’t that Trump is a | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES That’s the ballgame folks. Donald Trump’s meteoric rise is complete. Here is Kasich’s official statement: There you have it. Kasich, who seems like a contender for Trump’s VP pick, is officially out. Like Sherman marching to the sea, Trump has successfully burned, destroyed, maimed and killed his way through the GOP, to what is probably stage one of the | Read More »
