57 years ago, there was another governor who blocked children from being educated.

That was June 11, 1963.

Fast forward to now.

Last Friday, May 1st, the federal government gave all 50 states the green light to reopen.

But instead of following that sensible guideline (as other states are doing), Jay Inslee has instead defiantly extended his lockdown for another month (and beyond).

Jay Inslee’s message to Washingtonians is clear:




Every day that goes by, more and more people are getting hurt.

Who’s getting hurt the most?

Kids. Regular kids.

Washington’s Constitution makes it very clear the state’s paramount duty is educating kids.

Kids, especially poor and low-income kids, are not getting the education they are constitutionally mandated to get because of Inslee’s lockdown.

One of the most brilliant legal minds in Washington state — attorney Joel Ard — has agreed to take this on if we can raise the necessary funds (I’ve written about him before:

Fortunately I’ve been able to raise enough start-up money in the last week to get the ball rolling so he’s working on it right now.


He will be representing children who are being harmed by Inslee’s school lockdown.

He will be asking the court to rule Inslee’s school lockdown violates the state Constitution and to order schools to open now (not just for the plaintiffs in that particular county but all children in Washington state).

This lawsuit is critically important because kids, especially poor and low-income kids, are entitled to a good education and they aren’t getting one because of Inslee’s lockdown.

And this lawsuit is extremely beneficial to parents because it will free them from their homes and allow them to go back to work.

And maybe most important of all, this lawsuit will force Jay Inslee to finally answer tough questions and justify extending his destructive lockdown. I think most people are fed up with the media’s softballs at his patty-cake press conferences. It’s time for Jay Inslee to answer real questions under oath in a court of law so we can learn what’s really going on. His claims will have to be justified, documents will have to be released, and a public airing of the facts will be required. 

Joel Ard will be able to prosecute this case brilliantly.

Conservative activist Glen Morgan recently interviewed him about this very subject.

You can watch it here:



Once I saw that video, I knew Joel was ready to go.

So this is Sue Inslee Round 2 — OPEN SCHOOLS NOW (Sue Inslee Round 1 — EVERYONE IS ESSENTIAL lawsuit is very well financed for now:

With the start-up money I was able to secure, Joel has a dedicated trust account for this specific lawsuit.

There’s 2 ways to help (we’re working on getting some other options — stay tuned on that). 


  • You can mail a check — made payable to “Ard Law Group PLLC” — to: Ard Law Group PLLC, PO Box 11633, Bainbridge Island, WA, 98110. On the memo line, write: OPEN SCHOOLS NOW.

Because this is for a legal defense fund for a public policy lawsuit, you can give as much as you want (there’s no limit) and your support will remain confidential (that’s right, Inslee won’t be able to retaliate against you, your children, business, or industry).

As you know, I’m running for Governor and so I really shouldn’t be asking anyone to donate to anything other than my own campaign.

But this effort, this cause, this lawsuit is so critically important that I feel I gotta do it.

As a candidate for Governor, I’m doing everything I can to empower the people to fight back now.

Just imagine how much more I can do for the people as Governor.To beat Jay Inslee, Washington’s very own George Wallace, we need a battle-tested warrior.

Please support me ( and convince others to do the same.

I make you this promise: support me in this effort and I’ll give you a race for Governor like you’ve never seen before.

I love you all.
