Godless California

Has California lost its mind?

Over the last six years, California lawmakers, almost all of them Democrats, have seized the mantle of Hope and Change to enact some of the wackiest and most dangerous legislation in decades.

The Correctional Law Amendment Bill, SBx3 18, sponsored by Democrat Denise Moreno Ducheny, authorized the early release of more than 27,000 California prison inmates. With the state’s 70% recidivism rate, those 27,000 early releases translate into 18,000 new crimes.

In a written statement condemning SBx3 18, the Republican Caucus wrote: “Among the inmates who could be eligible for early release under the Democrat plan include felons convicted of human trafficking, stalking, identity theft, violent child abuse, and threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction.”

SBx3 18 passed the California Senate by a 21-19 vote, with all 15 Senate Republicans voting against it, and all but 4 Democrats voting in favor. It was signed into law in October of 2009 by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Already, at least four murders, including the stabbing death of a young mother on Hollywood Boulevard, have been attributed to the early release of prisoners through SBx3 18.

Democrat Mark R. Leno sponsored SB 48, the Requires Teaching Gay History Bill. SB 48 requires public schools and textbooks to portray homosexuality in a positive light, and issues a warning to “alternative and charter schools” to “take notice of the provisions in this bill.”

In other words, say goodbye to the heroic deeds of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Frederick Douglas, and say hello to the sexual exploits and lifestyles of Oscar Wilde, Ellen Degeneres, and Chaz Bono.

Nowhere does this bill mention the enormous cost to taxpayers to rewrite and reprint all of the state’s textbooks and school materials, and who will receive that money. Nor does it mention the huge consulting fees, also at taxpayer expense, paid to “experts” within the homosexual, transgender, and cross-dressing communities in order to rewrite all those textbooks and school materials.

SB 48, a thinly disguised attempt to force homosexuality, cross-dressing, and transgenderism past parents and into the minds of children, passed the California Senate by a vote of 23-14, with all 14 “no” votes coming from Republicans, and all 23 “yes” votes coming from Democrats; passed the California House by a vote of 50-26, with all 26 “no” votes coming from Republicans, and 49 Democrats and 1 Independent voting “yes”; and was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. It is now mandatory teaching for grades K-12.

In 2010, Democrat Sandra R. Swanson sponsored AB 1756, the Food Stamps for Felons Bill. AB 1756 states that it will “provide that a person convicted of any drug felony shall be eligible for aid under the Food Stamp program…”

AB 1756 passed the California House by a vote of 44-31, with 27 Republicans voting “no”, and 43 Democrats and 1 Independent voting “yes”.

Democrat Christine Kehoe sponsored SB 1338, a bill that would allow nurses and other non-physicians to perform dangerous suction abortions, a procedure in which the fetus’s body is torn apart. Thankfully, SB 1338 failed on a 4-4 vote in the Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee, but was resurrected as AB 154 by Democrat Toni Atkins.

Despite meticulous documentation proving that gun control laws increase violent crime, California Democrats have introduced at least nine new bills over the last two years aimed at confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens.

As bad as all of the preceding California Senate and Assembly bills are, perhaps the worst one of all is AB 1266, Pupil Rights, sponsored by Democrat Tom Ammiano. AB 1266 states: “This bill would require that a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs; and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

In other words, boys and girls, grades K-12, sharing bathrooms and showers at the same time.
AB 1266 passed the California Assembly by a vote of 46-25, with all Republicans voting “no”.

If you’re reading this and wondering how California Democrats can be so dumb, the answer is they’re not. Every move they make is calculated to advance a specific leftist agenda. Hollywood, the media, and big money are all on their side.

It’s fashionable today to claim there’s no difference between Republicans and Democrats, but as these bills demonstrate, the difference is huge.

California: take away the fruits and flakes, and all that’s left are the nuts.

Who is the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights?

bindy

This is my question after reading the jaw dropping line on Drudge: UN Condemns Israel for Not Sharing Iron Dome Tech…


BRIETBART: UN CONDEMNS ISRAEL’S LATEST WAR CRIME: NOT SHARING IRON DOME WITH HAMAS

The UN’s top human rights official again condemned Israel for its military actions to stop Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, accusing the Jewish state of “deliberately defying International Law… in a way that may constitute war crimes. Navi Pillay told reporters following yet another “emergency” meeting of the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council that Israel was not doing enough to protect civilians… …Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the “governing authority” of Gaza – i.e. Hamas…

Read the Breitbart article here at http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/07/31/UN-Condemns-Israel-s-Latest-War-Crime-Not-Sharing-Iron-Dome-with-Hamas


 So who is this brilliant luminary, Navi Pillay?

Here’s the puff piece on the UN website describing their “High Commissioner for Human Rights.” To understand it, I’ve excerpted a couple of telling clues:


Navanethem Pillay

http://www.ohchr.org/en/aboutus/pages/highcommissioner.aspx The appointment of Navi Pillay as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights was approved by the General Assembly on 28 July 2008…

What follows is carefully crafted puff. If you want to read it, just click on the link. 

…She co-founded Equality Now

an organization that is working to legalize abortion worldwide. Success in Nepal: The Decriminalization of Abortion

…She also holds a Master of Law and a Doctorate of Juridical Science from Harvard University

…hmmmmmm. Who else do we know who majored in Law at Harvard, hates Israel and loves abortion?


The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is cut from the same cloth as our own Barack Hussein Obama. This fact will comfort some people, but chill others.  I don’t have the time to dig for more information, but we now know that she drinks from a polluted stream, like most Harvard alumni.  ~ TD

Wayne Allyn Root on the Murder of the Middle Class

What is the Murder of the Middle Class?
By Wayne Allyn Root

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launches today Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed, plundered and looted by the premeditated “Murder of the Middle Class.” This is no accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the boldest, grandest criminal conspiracy in world history.

Although the man at the center of this massive world-class fraud is Barack Obama, there are many moving parts and co-conspirators. These include famous billionaire businessmen, corporate CEOs, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street bankers, central bankers, government employee unions, the IRS, EPA, NSA, the Bar Association, assorted communists and America-haters, and even some well-known D.C. establishment Republicans. It’s quite a shocking list of conspirators.

Lies and fraud are at the center of this “murder of the middle class.” President Obama and various big government politicians need to distract the middle class from their real agenda. Lies are their WMD- weapon of mass distraction.

So they claim Obamacare is about “saving the sick and uninsured”…when the real objective is income redistribution (through higher taxes and higher premiums) to make the middle class poor and dependent on government.

They claim environmental regulations and green energy will save us from global warming…when the real objective is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills, gas bills and grocery bills.

They claim immigration reform is about “protecting innocent children”…when the real objective is to create 12 million new low-wage employees in the labor force…depress middle class wages for generations to come…create 12 million future Democratic voters…and assign all of them lawyers at the expense of middle class taxpayers, to enrich the Bar Association, the biggest donor to the Democrat Party.

They claim higher taxes are to “create equality”… when the real objective is income redistribution and starving the biggest donors to conservative causes and candidates- small business and the middle class.

They claim higher education spending is “for the kids,” …when the real objective is enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions back to Democrat politicians.

They claim bailing out GM was to “save jobs”…when the real goal was saving bloated pensions for auto union members, whose unions kicked back hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians.

The Fed claims quantitative easing is “to save the economy”…when the real goal was making crony capitalist Warren Buffett $12.7 billion richer last year, while the children and unborn grandchildren of middle class taxpayers owe back $17 trillion in debt used to fund a fixed craps game on Wall Street.

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class; redistributing wealth; making it impossible for small business to compete with big business; rewarding lobbyists, lawyers and crony capitalists; keeping politicians in office for life; and putting big government in control of our every move.

But the biggest lie of all is when politicians like Obama claim, “It’s all okay. Things are getting better. We’re in a recovery. Look away, there’s nothing to see here.”

It’s not okay. This author was just notified by his health insurance company that my family’s policy has been cancelled. When Obama was elected my bill was $500 per month. Today it’s $1700 per month. But now my family will have no insurance at all, because of Obamacare. Tens of millions of middle class Americans will soon receive the same notice. This is no mistake. This was premeditated fraud upon the middle class.

My grocery bills have skyrocketed. How about yours? My electric bills are at all-time highs. Gas prices have doubled since Obama became president. How can middle class people survive, without becoming dependent on government? Ah, that’s the point.

All this while the economy is in crisis and collapse. The GDP for the first quarter was NEGATIVE 2.9%, one of the worst showings in history, six years after Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus promised to “save” the economy. That stimulus went to Obama’s voters (the poor) and Obama’s donors (the super rich). But the bill (in the form of debt) goes to the middle class for decades to come.

No, things are not alright. Here are just a few of the facts from my new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class:”

China is set to pass America as the world’s #1 economy based on consumer spending. THIS YEAR. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the #1 economy in the world.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2616806/American-dollar-hits-wall-China-prepares-leap-place-worlds-largest-economy-end-year.html

For the first time in history America’s middle class isn’t #1 in the world. Canada’s middle class has passed us.

20% of U.S. families don’t have a single member who is employed:

The number of working age Americans without a job has increased by about 10 million in Obama’s first 5 years as President. That means each and every year of Obama’s Presidency, 2 million more Americans disappeared from the workforce.

America’s 2nd largest employer is a Temp Agency.

70% of Americans believe we are still in the middle of the economic crisis, or that the worst is yet to come. And, they are correct.

There is no doubt the great American middle class is being murdered. I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class” to give all Americans the information, tools and courage to save the middle class and the American Dream. This fight is just getting started. Get informed and join the battle. God Bless America.

Coming soon: Tax on how much you drive

VMT tax

Americans already are taxed on how much we drive. It’s called the gas tax.

But because of more fuel-efficient cars, we’re consuming less gas, which means ever-ravenous governments aren’t getting revenue from the gas tax as much as before.

So 19 states are “considering” imposing another tax on how much we drive, by calling it a different name —  the VMT or Vehicle Miles Traveled, a user tax that’ll tax you according to how many miles you’ve driven your vehicle.

Supposedly, if your state goes through with the VMT, it’ll replace the gas tax. Don’t count on it.  Even if a state replaces the gas tax with the VMT, there’s still the federal part of the gas tax.

Incredibly, there are thousands of “useful idiot” volunteers in Oregon who will soon have mileage meters installed in their cars.

Dan Mitchell of the libertarian think-tank, the Cato Institute, warns that if you let government install a GPS monitor in your car, you’ll also lose your privacy because the monitor will record not only your mileage but also where you go and when.

The Daily Sheeple suspects there’s also another motive:

This is part of the Agenda 21 lot to corral people in one place. It is to discourage people from living outside the city and commuting to work. It is a plan that will force many to rely on public transportation. Lots of people in a small area are far easier to control than people scattered about in wide open spaces.

Nancy Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage

Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage

June 16, 2014 By Stephen Frank 6 Comments

Democrats tell us that religion has no place in the public square, that religious values have no place in discussion of policies. Yet, the San Fran Nan maniacs still claim to believe in the First Amendment which gives us free speech and freedom of religion. The Left thinks IF your policies come from religious origins, you have no right to express them.

“In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

While Pelosi claims to be a Catholic, she has made it clear she openly opposes Catholics theology and Church leaders that publically speak about those values. Maybe Pelosi should stop promoting anti-freedom legislation, like ObamaCare.

Why does the Catholic Church still allow her in the doors?
San Fran Nan appears to be a self-loathing Catholic.

Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage
by William Bigelow, Breitbart CA, 6/15/14

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, “The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage.”

Pelosi, who called the event “venom masquerading as virtue,” wrote to Cordileone, “We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco,” adding that the event would feature some participants displaying “disdain and hate towards LGBT persons,” and asserting, “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?”

The March for Marriage, which was initiated last year, features thousands of people standing up for “traditional marriage” walking from the U.S Capitol to the Supreme Court. Among the speakers are Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

Pelosi is not the only Democratic San Francisco politician sending Cordileone a letter decrying his participation in the march. Last week, San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome issued a joint letter to the bishop protesting his participation. In the letter, cited by the Chronicle‘s Carla Marinucci, they wrote: “We ask that you will reconsider your participation and join us in seeking to promote reconciliation rather than division and hatred …” They said the march was “organized by some of the nation’s most virulently anti-LGBT organizations and leaders.”

The National Organization of Marriage was also targeted by the federal government in the IRS scandal.

An online petition demanding that Cordileone cease and desist in his plans has been signed by roughly 20,000 people.

Cordileone is the head of the Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage for the U.S. Conference of Bishops. He has already referred to the March as “an important means to promote and defend marriage for the good of our culture, to pray for our federal and state governments, and to stand in solidarity with people of good will,” adding, “This is a critical time for marriage in our country, as marriage amendments are being struck down by federal courts and appeals of these decisions are being made.”

The Dam Beavers.

Folks I don’t know if this is true, but I do know it is funny as hell. If you need a good laugh to start the day please take 2 minutes to read.

———————————————————————————————–

This is an actual letter sent to a man named Ryan DeVries by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Quality, State of Pennsylvania . This guy’s response is hilarious, but read the State’s letter before you get to the response letter.
SUBJECT: DEQ File No.97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Lycoming County
Dear Mr. DeVries:
It has come to the attention of the Department of Environmental Quality that there has been recent unauthorized activity on the above referenced parcel of property. You have been certified as the legal landowner and/or contractor who did the following unauthorized activity:
Construction and maintenance of two wood debris dams across the outlet stream of Spring Pond.
A permit must be issued prior to the start of this type of activity.
A review of the Department’s files shows that no permits have been issued. Therefore, the Department has determined that this activity is in violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Pennsylvania Compiled Laws, annotated.!
The Department has been informed that one or both of the dams partially failed during a recent rain event, causing debris and flooding at downstream locations. We find that dams of this nature are inherently hazardous and cannot be permitted. The Department therefore orders you to cease and desist all activities at this location, and to restore the stream to a free-flow condition by removing all wood and brush forming the dams from the stream channel. All restoration work shall be completed no later than January 31, 2006.
Please notify this office when the restoration has been completed so that a follow-up site inspection may be scheduled by our staff.

Failure to comply with this request or any further unauthorized activity on the site may result in this case being referred for elevated enforcement action..
We anticipate and would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter. Please feel free to contact me at this office if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
David L. Price
District Representative and Water Management Division.

Here is the actual response sent back by Mr. DeVries:
Re: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Lycoming County
Dear Mr. Price,
Your certified letter dated 12/17/02 has been handed to me to respond to. I am the legal landowner but not the Contractor at 2088 Dagget Lane , Trout Run, Pennsylvania .
A couple of beavers are in the (State unauthorized) process of constructing and maintaining two wood “debris” dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond. While I did not pay for, authorize, nor supervise their dam project, I think they would be highly offended that you call their skillful use of natures building materials “debris.” I would like to challenge your department to attempt to emulate their dam project any time and/or any place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic.
As to your request, I do not think the beavers are aware that they must first fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity.
My first dam question to you is:
(1) Are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers.
(2) Or do you require all beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request?
If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, through the Freedom of Information Act, I request completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits that have been issued. Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Pennsylvania Compiled Laws, annotated.
I have several concerns. My first concern is; aren’t the beavers entitled to legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said representation — so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer. The Department’s dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event, causing flooding, is proof that this is a natural occurrence, which the Department is required to protect. In other words, we should leave the Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling their dam names.
If you want the stream “restored” to a dam free-flow condition please contact the beavers — but if you are going to arrest them, they obviously did not pay any attention to your dam letter, they being unable to read English.
In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream. They have more dam rights than I do to live and enjoy Spring Pond. If the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection lives up to its name, it should protect the natural resources (Beavers) and the environment (Beavers’ Dams).
So, as far as the beavers and I are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more elevated enforcement action right now. Why wait until 1/31/2006? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice then and there will be no way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them then.
In conclusion, I would like to bring to your attention to a real environmental quality, health, problem in the area. It is the bears! Bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the beavers alone.
If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your step! The bears are not careful where they dump!       

I guess they really do.

I guess they really do.

 

Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your dam office.

THANK YOU.
RYAN DEVRIES & THE DAM BEAVERS
