Letter to the Editor: What does Cyrus Habib, Clinton, Soros, Alinsky, and Media all have in Common?

What does Cyrus Habib, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Saul Alinsky, and the Media all have in common? Well it’s more than Washington State should want.  Cyrus Habib, the Democrat Candidate for Lieutenant Governor was first spotted by George Soros, and was paid to go to Oxford as a Soros Fellow.  Who is Soros, a billionaire with a radical vision to remake the entire world? Cyrus was then sent to work for Senator Hillary Clinton, “Alinsky’s daughter”, to learn how to funnel money.  Like Clinton Foundation, over 50% of Habib’s contributions come from out of state Iranians.  Saul Alinsky wrote Rules for Radicals, and dedicated it to Lucifer.  Radical rule is “go after people, people hurt faster than institutions”.  Habib acted on this at an NRA event, by putting protesters in the crowd to bring up birther issues.  How does Media react, they posted Articles immediately to hurt Marty McClendon.  Habib has stated, “This is a great opportunity to influence state policy with a partisan agenda” and the Washington media endorses him. Washington State does not need partisan agenda that dedicates itself to Lucifer.  It needs home grown Eagle Scout Marty McClendon, who is an appointed United Nation Goodwill Ambassador for the Golden Rule for Interfaith Peace-Building Initiative.

Allison Goodman headshotBy Allison Goodman

For years, law enforcement agencies across the world have been sending locked iPhones to Apple and Apple has been serving up the data from these phones like a piece of Apple pie (with the appropriate subpoena or search warrant).  When Apple released the iOS 8 operating system back in 2014, it announced that they would no longer have the ability to extract data from iPhones running this (and subsequent) operating systems, essentially cutting off the free Apple pie.     [Read more…]

Washington Earns a C+ For Small Business Friendliness, A+ for Training and Networking Programs

WA Governments Barely Passing, Need Improvement in Attitude Towards Small Business
Small business owners in Washington gave the state one of the country’s highest marks for local training programs, but found its regulatory environment challenging, according to Thumbtack’s annual Small Business Friendliness Survey. Complete results for Washington are

published at https://www.thumbtack.com/wa/.

Nearly 18,000 U.S. small business owners responded to the survey, including 488 in Washington. The study asked respondents to rate their state and city governments across a broad range of policy factors. Thumbtack then evaluated states and cities against one another along more than a dozen metrics.
“Small business owners on Thumbtack have consistently told us that they welcome support from their governments but are frequently frustrated by unnecessary bureaucratic obstacles,” said Jon Lieber, Chief Economist of Thumbtack. “Washington-based small business owners love their state’s support, but want to see some improvement on the regulatory front to make their lives easier.”
“I love doing business where I live,” commented a piano instructor in Seattle. “Setting up a business is easy and encouraged.”
Key Findings for Washington:
  • Washington performed better in 2015 than it did in 2014, when it ranked #25 and earned a C overall.
  • Washington’s highest scores were an A+ for training and networking programs and an A- for ease of starting a business.
  • Seattle, WA earned a B- for overall business friendliness, outperforming Tacoma’s overall C grade.
  • Washington’s worst scores were D+ grades for both tax and labor regulations.
  • Neighboring Oregon earned an overall friendliness score of a B and ranked #18 nationally.
