*** REGIONAL NEWS FROM TUESDAY ***
- Dear readers: The unsubstantiated rumors and falsehoods in e-mails and comments I have received about the purpose of a Nisqually Tribe quarantine center are very damaging. Tribal Chair Willie Frank III has now responded to this ignorant public assault. The facts of this facility were easily accessible in The Seattle Times from July 2020. I list both stories here for you to discern for yourselves:

+ The Seattle Times [July 17, 2020]: “The Nisqually Indian Tribe is constructing a $900,000 emergency response center and buying a modular unit to be used as a domestic violence prevention center. [Editor’s note: This was a Trump Admin. federal grant “to pay for programs to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus and give financial help to tribal members for rent and utility bills.‘]

Nisqually Indian Tribe responds to threats related to its quarantine site; Trump News – I truly fear for the sanity of this our country. The vitriol attacks from both sides on all issues is unnerving and disturbing. I await the calm after the storm.
I do not see calm yet on the horizon, rather increasing fake news to create doubts about our elections’ integrity. The GOP have already engaged lawyers to contest future elections. This is following the exact same roadmap every democracy has experienced with a right wing take-over. This creates the platform for a dictator and the absolution of that country’s democratic fundamentals. Think Argentina/Peron, Italy/Mussolini, Germany/Hitler, and a whole host of Asian and South American countries. The U.S. is next in Nov. 2022. Kagan’s Op-Ed publicized here earlier this week warned us. Fasten your seat belts.
