#PresidentBiden #Inauguration #Portland #Seattle President Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States while 15,000 National Guard members were stationed in what many called a "militarized" DC. Associated Press reporter Mike Balsamo tweeted, "Downtown Washington is basically a military and law enforcement fortress a day before the inauguration. There are checkpoints at nearly every corner, streets blocked off with giant trucks & National Guard troops continue streaming in." Meanwhile, protestors were out in Portland and Seattle for the #J20 direct action which included reports of smashed windows at the historic Starbucks in Pike Place Market and the Democrat Party of Oregon.

Journalists are now being pressured to say "climate emergency" instead of climate change. Todd Myers is Environmental Director at the Washington Policy Center and Author of "Time to Think Small: How Nimble Environmental Technologies Can Solve the Planet's Biggest Problems."
Ex- Seattle TV journalist, Jonathon Choe, was barred from a media tour of a new homeless megaplex because the King County Executive's communication team told him he's "not a member of the media." He currently works for the Discovery Institute, a public policy think tank. Choe was fired from KOMO after his coverage of a Proud Boy's rally (he was called a white supremacist though he is Asian). Hoping to have him and Brandi Kruse, who is also an ex-Seattle TV reporter, on tomorrow to talk about how the Seattle government officials are deciding who is a journalist. Any questions?
