The ‘Taking’ of the Skykomish Hotel
Skykomish, along with neighbours and friends dressed as .org and .gov partners, launched its latest effort to take the Skykomish Hotel following Washington State Department of Ecology’s disastrous BNSF Railway environmental remediation scam that left soil and ground water beneath the town severely polluted with diesel and bunker oils, and seriously damaged or destroyed structures, including the historic Skykomish Hotel, leaving it uninhabitable, subject to flooding and without operational utilities.
First, the Town prevents the Hotel’s restoration for over a decade, then along with WSDoE, causes millions of dollars in damage to the Hotel, then blames Hotel owners for Neglect, then demands Hotel owners make the Town whole, then threatens to ‘take’ the Hotel as part of their new Town Center ‘Vision’, then threatens to demolish the Hotel and now sues the Hotel as well as numerous unrelated parties.
I think you got this economic development thing backwards guys. It’s time to put the crack pipe down.
A decade of holding the Hotel hostage to others’ follies wasn’t enough, as the Town now says it wants more. This latest assault assures continued economic hardship for Sky and the landmarked Skykomish Hotel.
Efforts to damage the Hotel, disenfranchise Hotel owners and tenants from living, working, raising families, owning property and voting in Skykomish have met with stiff resistance.
Is stealing valuable private properties right or prudent? Sky has already paid a heavy price for venturing down this slippery slope.
Is today’s much touted ‘Public/Private Partnership’ (PPP) fad between corporate giants and government just the same old 1930’s Fascist Nazi pig in a pretty new dress?
Check your history to discover that PPP’s are not new. Fascism is the melding of wealthy private corporate oligarchs with government ruling elites to serve Rothschild Khazarian Mafia banksters.
Fascism swept through much of Europe and America prior to the outbreak of World War 2, cloaking itself in the more appealing term ‘National Socialism’.
Crowds waved and cheered with glee at the ‘new age’ that was upon them.
Skykomish… It’s Time to Stand up for You, Your Town and America!
