San Francisco allows non-citizens to vote

Why bother to become a U.S. citizen?

Fox2 KTVU reports, July 16, 2018, that in 2016, San Franciscans voted to become the first city in California to allow non-citizens to vote in a local election. Measure N was passed with 54% of the vote, meaning that non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants illegal border-crossers, are now able to vote in school board elections.

Today, city officials announced the launch of non-citizen voter registration for school board elections.

To be eligible to vote, a person no longer is required to be a U.S. citizen, but must be a resident of San Francisco, at least 18 years of age, the parent or legal guardian of a child under 18, living in the San Francisco Unified School District, and not in prison or on parole for a felony conviction.

Seattle Education Association fought for ex-teaching assistant charged with rape, despite troubled past employment

seattle education association

Apparently “great standards, great conditions, great engagement and great staff” are really important to the union. Because they are “devoted to the students of Seattle and the educators that support them.”

Lewis Kamb at the Seattle Times has a disturbing report about how the Seattle Public Schools’ union protected a really ineffective employee – one with multiple work engagement failures and more-than-questionable behaviors.

Why is it that proggies protect the unlawful and immoral (illegal aliens, criminal homeless, etc.) yet try to punish law-abiding citizens (lawful firearm owners)?

From Seattle Times: He missed work 21 times, routinely showed up late or reeking of alcohol, disrupted class with loud outbursts, even one time “playfully” put a special-needs student with impulse-control issues into a headlock, personnel records show.

Still, Seattle Public Schools kept Albert C. Virachismith — a man who would later be accused of child rape — working as an instructional assistant at John Muir Elementary School during the 2016-17 school year, pairing him with a special-education student who needed extra help.

In fact, only after Virachismith showed up smelling of booze yet again at the end of that school year did the district seek to fire him — but even that didn’t stick.

After Virachismith and his union, the Seattle Education Association, filed a grievance challenging his termination, the district agreed to a compromise allowing him to keep working with kids as a substitute during the 2017-18 school year.

Within two months, Virachismith had violated that “Last Chance Settlement Agreement” by failing two urine tests and repeatedly missing required alcohol-treatment sessions, records show. Still, the district held off on firing him.

Last school year, Virachismith subbed at seven schoolsfive of them after his violations came to light — until Jan. 29, when a 9-year-old told his parents about the five to six times Virachismith allegedly sexually assaulted him inside a bathroom at John Muir during the previous school year.

The district ultimately fired Virachismith on Feb. 7 — five days after his arrest for investigation of child rape and molestation. But his termination wasn’t due to the alleged sex crimes, but for breaking his last-chance pact — based on information district officials had known about for nearly two months.

Virachismith, 41, of Seattle, has pleaded not guilty to both felony counts. Since Feb. 2, he has been held in the King County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail, according to the jail roster. A trial has been set for later this month.

Neither the prosecutor handling the case nor Virachismith’s public defender returned messages Friday seeking comment. A police spokesman said Friday an investigation remains “active and ongoing.”

The details of Virachismith’s problem-plagued tenure as a school employee are contained in various Seattle Public Schools personnel records, some of which were released to The Seattle Times last week in response to a Public Records Act request.

In April, then-Seattle Public Schools spokeswoman Kim Schmanke said in an email both the Muir school and the district “followed progressive disciplinary steps to address the absences, tardiness and indications of an alcohol problem.”

“Until Jan. 29, 2018, there were no indications or reports of inappropriate interactions of a sexual nature at SPS involving Virachismith,” Schmanke’s email added.

Once the rape allegations emerged, the district “immediately restricted him from taking any assignments and banned him from all schools grounds upon receiving the allegation. We also moved quickly to terminate his employment,” Schmanke said.

In a brief statement Friday, the school district said it “will continue to support the Seattle Police Department and the Prosecutor’s Office on all criminal proceedings and investigations related to Mr. Virachismith.”

Virachismith, who earned $30,235 in pay and benefits for the 2016-17 school year, was hired in 2014 as a special-education instructional assistant, records show. For his first two school years, he worked at Martin Luther King Jr. elementary, before transferring to John Muir for the 2016-17 school year.

Virachismith received “unsatisfactory” ratings — the lowest possible grade — on every section of his employee-performance evaluation for the 2016-17 school year at Muir. The evaluation, completed in April 2017, is riddled by negative remarks and shows multiple problems were documented about Virachismith throughout the school year.

“Albert fails to accomplish the essential functions of the job,” one comment says.

“Albert’s judgment is questionable and his decision quality is poor,” says another.

Another remark bluntly described Virachismith as “not reliable,” requiring “significant supervision to complete assigned work.”

“He does not follow District policies by coming to work with an overwhelming odor of alcohol,” it added.

At least twice in the first half of the school year — in August and December of 2016 — staff members “documented that Albert reported to work with the odor of alcohol so pervasive that he was asked to go home,” according to the review.

Virachismith missed 13 of the first 65 scheduled days of school in 2016, and repeatedly arrived late — sometimes, by several hours — on multiple days, the document says.

Sanctuary California: Illegal alien who attacked wife with chainsaw was previously deported 11 times

Free to commit crimes in sanctuary California: Illegal Alvarez/Whittier Police Department

This is why we need ICE.

From Fox News: An illegal immigrant alien who allegedly slashed his wife with a chainsaw at their California home was previously deported 11 times before he was arrested Thursday in the gruesome attack, immigration officials said.

Alejandro Alvarez, 32, is a “serial immigration violator” who has been deported nearly a dozen times since 2005, Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lori Haley told the Los Angeles Times. Immigration officials have lodged a detainer against Alvarez.

Alvarez is accused of attacking his wife in the couple’s home in Whittier on Wednesday while their three children were inside, police said.

“When officers arrived they found a female adult suffering from traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw,” police said in a previous Facebook post about the alleged crime.

Alvarez’s wife was taken to the hospital and is recovering from her injuries. She is expected to survive, police said.

The 32-year-old suspect is expected to be charged with attempted murder, child endangerment, hit & run and grand theft auto, police said on Thursday.

Records showed Alvarez had a criminal history prior to his recent arrest. He was charged in 2013 to one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and one count of using or being under the influence of a controlled substance. He pleaded no contest to those charges, the Los Angeles Times reported. He also pleaded no contest to driving under the influence.

Federal government admits, although required by law, it does not monitor vaccine safety

Did you know that vaccine manufacturers cannot be sued in state courts for damages as a result of design-defects in their products?

That’s what the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-2 in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth — that the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act protects vaccine manufacturers from design-defect claims.

Congress had passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) in 1986 in response to a massive increase in litigation against vaccine manufacturers, which drove two of the largest domestic manufacturers out of business and led to a shortage of vaccines. Congress created the new law to shield vaccine manufactures from tort litigation and, in so doing, alleviate the growing shortage of vaccines. (Homeland Security News Wire)

In place of lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act created a system of federal government oversight of vaccine safety:

  1. All health care providers must report adverse vaccination events and possible side effects to a post-marketing surveillance program — the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), co-managed by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The CDC and FDA are agencies within the federal government’s Department of Health & Human Services (HHS).
  2. To coordinate vaccine-related activities of the CDC, FDA and other HHS agencies, the NCVIA created the National Vaccine Program — an office within the HHS which is required under Title 42, United States Code, 300aa-27(c), to report every two years to Congress about vaccine safety, adverse reactions, and other aspects of vaccinations.

Indeed, the Supreme Court’s majority opinion in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth by Justice Antonin Scalia concluded (p. 55 of Bruesewitz v. Wyeth) that by passing the NCVIA, Congress had struck a “careful balance between providing adequate compensation for vaccine-injured children and conferring substantial benefits on vaccine manufacturers to ensure a stable and predictable childhood vaccine supply.” Nevertheless, the Supreme Court’s “majority’s decision today disturbs that careful balance based on a bare policy preference that it is better ‘to leave complex epidemiological judgments about vaccine design to the FDA and the National Vaccine Program rather than juries.’”

Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) is a non-profit founded by Del Bigtree to investigate “the safety of medical procedures, pharmaceutical drugs, and vaccines while advocating for people’s right to ‘informed consent’.”

On August 25, 2017, ICAN filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for those bi-annual vaccine reports that the HHS is required to send Congress, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. SS300aa-27(c).

HHS stonewalled ICAN’s FOIA request for eight months.

On April 12, 2018, ICAN filed another lawsuit, “Informed Consent Action Network v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services” in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, demanding an answer to their FOIA filing.

On July 6, 2018, ICAN finally received a response — an admission in federal court by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the federal agency mandated by Congress under 42 U.S.C. SS300aa-27(c) to track vaccine safety, that they had never done it:

Although the HHS’ National Vaccine Program Office is required to report every two years to Congress on their monitoring of vaccines, the HHS has no such records — not even one in the 31 years since 1987.  That means the National Vaccine Program had never monitored vaccine manufacturers for vaccine safety and side effects.

Here is a screenshot of the “Stipulation” or court order in ICAN v. HHS, in which HHS made that stunning admission:

As ICAN observes:

The 1986 [National Childhood Vaccine Injury] Act created a system in which vaccines are licensed, recommended, encouraged, subsidized, and defended by HHS. The 1986 Act’s scheme thus places HHS in charge of two competing duties. On one hand, HHS is responsible for vaccine safety. On the other hand, HHS is required to promote vaccine uptake and defend against any claim they cause any harm.

Regrettably, it appears that HHS has chosen to focus almost entirely on its vaccine promotion and defense function to such a degree that it has essentially abandoned its vaccine safety function.

To summarize:

  1. Congress passed a law in 1986 protecting vaccine manufacturers from being sued in state courts.
  2. At the same time, Congress created an agency within HHS, charged with the job of monitoring vaccine safety.
  3. That agency, National Vaccine Program Office, is supposed to report to Congress every two years.
  4. As a result of two lawsuits by the non-profit Informed Consent Action Network, HHS finally admitted in federal court that it doesn’t have any reports from the National Vaccine Program Office.
  5. This means HHS had never monitored vaccine safety, although it is required by law to do so.
  6. Neither has Congress done its job. Why hasn’t Congress held HHS to account for failing to submit vaccine safety reports?
  7. This means the American people really have no reason, other than what vaccine manufacturers say, to think vaccines are safe.
  8. And yet the media demonize vaccine skeptics as “conspiracy theory” crazies.

Bonus News:

Did you know that generic drug manufacturers cannot be sued for manufacturing and selling a defective drug? – even if:

  • The drug causes horrific injuries;
  • The generic company knew the drug was causing horrific injuries and did nothing to warn patients or doctors about the dangers of the drug.

That’s because the Supreme Court ruled in PLIVA v. Mensing (2011) and Mutual Pharma. V. Bartlett (2013) that while brand-name companies are allowed to add new warnings to their drug labels without getting prior permission from the FDA, generic companies are not. If a generic drug company discovers a new side effect of one of its drugs, it is not permitted to tell patients or doctors about this new information. It must first contact the FDA and request that the brand-name label be changed. Only after the brand-name label is changed is the generic company allowed to change its label. In essence, generic manufacturers are prohibited from giving any warnings to doctors or to the public that have not already been given by the brand-name manufacturer.

Portland, Oregon mayor implies police profiling because half the arrests last year were of homeless people

homeless in downtown portland

Downtown Portland…this certainly looks like a familiar picture

It’s not only Seattle and San Francisco that have a problem /crisis with homeless. Add the liberal utopia of Portland, Oregon to that list, too. In June 2017 Portland saw a 10 percent increase in their homeless population during the previous two years.

Gee, there’s seems to be a common denominator amongst these cities facing rising homelessness and crime…If I could just put my finger on it!

From Oregon Live: Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler on Friday acknowledged it’s a problem that half of the arrests that police made in Portland last year were of homeless people.

The mayor said people who are experiencing homelessness or who have mental health and addiction issues should have fewer interactions with police and more with social service providers.

He said he wants to know what’s driving the statistics. “The real question here is, ‘Is there some sort of profiling or implicit bias?'” Wheeler said. “From my perspective, that’s the crux of the situation. The police should be focused on policing criminal activity, and that’s sort of the beginning, the middle and the end of it for me.”

The remarks came during a meeting with The Oregonian/OregonLive’s editorial board and were the most detailed the mayor has made since the newsroom published its findings last month.

The newsroom’s analysis showed that homeless people accounted for 52 percent of arrests, while making up less than 3 percent of the population.

He spent an hour-long interview discussing a wide-range of issues related to homelessness, housing and policing. He painted a conflicting picture of how the city is responding to its homelessness crisis.

He said Portland is using the “right strategy” and the “proven strategy,” to address the crisis and that cities along the West Coast “look to Portland for leadership.”

But at the same time, he said homelessness in Portland has been increasing (that’s liberal logic for ‘ya) and that the criminal justice system too often plays the role of social service provider.

“The criminal justice system is not the right place — or it shouldn’t be the place of first resort to provide addiction or mental health services,” Wheeler said. “It should happen elsewhere with no police and no judges and no juries and no jails.”

Wheeler said he thinks most people agree with that. “The question is how do we build the system?” he said.

Wheeler declined interview requests for the newsroom’s initial story about the arrests of homeless people. During a wide-ranging interview on Monday, the mayor said he wanted to know how many of the arrests were related to calls from the public as opposed to contacts initiated by police. He also appeared to be dismissive of the findings at that time.

Asked about the disparity in arrests, Wheeler told a reporter during the Monday interview, “I could play with statistics with you all day long.”

He continued, “We don’t have enough information based on a newspaper article to come to a conclusion. Does it warrant further evaluation? Of course, it does. Certainly, it does.”

On Friday, Wheeler called the newsroom’s investigation a “very thorough and, I thought, provocative report,” and he said he is taking it “very seriously.”

After the newsroom’s investigation, the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon called on Wheeler and Police Chief Danielle Outlaw to investigate whether officers are profiling people who are homeless.

Unfunny comedian George Lopez pees on Donald Trump’s star in Hollywood

On July 10, 2018, so-called comedian George Lopez was on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

As reported by TMZ, after chatting up fans and making sure that someone stands ready with a video cam, the 57-year-old Lopez appeared to unzip his pants, take out his tiny penis, and pee on Donald Trump’s star.

Here’s the video:

While what Lopez actually did was to simulate peeing on Trump’s star with a water bottle, he’s another demonstration of the self-described “tolerant” Left’s childishness and plain insanity.

Recall that Lopez repaid his wife for donating one of her kidneys to him by divorcing her. Given that display of sterling character, President Trump should take Lopez’s urinating on his star as a badge of honor.

Eight MS-13 gang members in US illegally indicted in Texas for violent crimes

Democrat Party logo MS-13

From NY Post: Federal authorities have indicted eight MS-13 gang members in the U.S. illegally who used machetes and other weapons to carry out a string of violent attacks against rival gang members in North Texas last year.

U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said Friday that the street gang is one of the largest in the U.S. and described their tactics as cold, calculating and ruthless. A major rule of the gang is that members must attack and kill rivals, she said.

“Their trademark is violence,” Cox said at a Friday news conference in Dallas. “They are required to commit acts of violence in order to be involved with the gang and to participate as gang members.”

Seven people were in custody Friday morning. Cox reported Friday morning that an eighth person, who was not identified, is at large. The 18-count indictment includes attempted murder in aid of racketeering and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering.

Katherine Greer, a deputy special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations, said the gang members are in the U.S. illegally, mostly from El Salvador.

President Donald Trump has singled out the gang as a threat to the United States, prompting criticism when he called its members “animals.”

MS-13 gang members committed at least six attacks in Dallas and nearby Irving last year, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. It said a sledgehammer was used in one attack, while a metal bat was involved in another. Rival gang members were victims of the attacks by MS-13 gang members, according to the statement.

The gang was founded in the U.S. in the 1980s by Salvadoran immigrants and has sunk roots in the country. Some of its members are U.S. citizens and not subject to deportation.
