Beinvenidos a California: Lawmakers agree to health benefits for illegal aliens

From SF Gate: California will become the first state to pay for some adults living in the country illegally to have full health benefits as the solidly liberal bastion continues to resist the policies of Republican President Donald Trump’s administration.

Democrats in the state Legislature reached an agreement Sunday afternoon as part of a broader plan to spend $213 billion of state and federal tax money over the next year. The legislature is expected to approve the deal this week. The agreement means low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, the joint state and federal health insurance program for the poor and disabled.

Only those in that age group whose incomes are low enough to qualify for the program would get the health benefits. State officials estimate that group will be about 90,000 people at a cost of $98 million per year. The state Senate had wanted to expand the proposal to include adults 65 and older, but the Newsom administration argued it would cost too much.

Sen. Holly Mitchell

“California believes that health is a fundamental right,” said state Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los Angeles Democrat who led the budget negotiations.

The move is part of a larger effort to make sure everyone in California has health insurance. The proposal also makes California the first state in the country to help middle-income families pay their monthly health insurance premiums. It means a family of four earning as much as six times the federal poverty level — or more than $150,000 a year — would be eligible to get about $100 a month from the government to help pay their monthly health insurance premiums.

But to pay for part of it, the state will begin taxing people who don’t have health insurance. It’s a revival of the individual mandate penalty that had been law nationwide under former President Barack Obama’s health care law until Republicans in Congress eliminated it as part of the 2017 overhaul to the tax code.

Republicans on the legislative committee negotiating the budget voted against the proposal, arguing it was not fair to give health benefits to people who are in the country illegally while taxing people who are here legally for not purchasing health insurance.

The budget agreement still must be approved by the full state Legislature. State law requires lawmakers to enact a budget by midnight on June 15. If they don’t, lawmakers would lose their pay.

The health care proposals are a win for first-term Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who proposed both of them. Several lawmakers in the Democratic-dominated state legislature wanted to go further by offering health coverage to all adults living in California illegally. But Newsom opposed that, noting it would cost $3.4 billion.

Professor argues that illegal aliens can hurt US economy, prompting calls for his firing

Professor Zhou/Georgia Gwinnett College photo

Truth shall not be told.

From Fox News: A college professor in Georgia is drawing criticism for his online comments about illegal immigrants, including his contention that people in the U.S. illegally can be a drain on the nation’s economy.

“If you are going to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” Fang Zhou, an associate professor of history at Georgia Gwinnett College near Atlanta, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Zhou says he welcomes the criticism, including from those who say he should lose his job, according to the report. “I am against political correctness,” Zhou, a legal immigrant from China, told the newspaper. “I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants. My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class,” he added.

But Zhou told the paper he does not force students to share his opinions.

His critics, however, argue that many of Zhou’s assertions have been debunked and they object to some of the terms he uses in his comments, such as “libtards,” and “ghetto thugs.”

One such critic, according to the report, is Georgia state Rep. Bee Nguyen (demorat), the first Vietnamese-American elected to the state’s House of Representatives.Nguyen posted some of Zhou’s comments on Twitter this week and asked her followers: “Are these the values supported by Georgia Gwinnett College?”

“I have concerns about him teaching those things in a classroom,” Nguyen, a Democrat, told the Journal-Constitution. She noted that nearly 70 percent of the college’s students are either African-American, Asian or Hispanic, and planned to write to college officials to formally complain about Zhou.

College officials did not respond directly to the newspaper’s request for comment but shared the school’s “academic freedom policy,” which stipulates that faculty members are allowed to express their views “without fear of censure.”

The same policy, however, told faculty members that they “should remember that the public may judge” their profession and the college by what they say and write.

Felon farts marijuana after shooting himself in the testicles

Source: KPRC AM 950

From Fox News.com.com, May 24

A bungling felon from Washington state made a series of blunders when he shot himself in the testicles and tried to hide the weapon — all while storing drugs in his anus, a report said Wednesday.

Cameron Jeffrey Wilson, 27, was carrying a pistol in his front pocket while in his Cashmere, Wash., apartment on April 5 when the firearm accidentally discharged and pierced his groin and thigh, according to the Wenatchee World News.

Wilson, who is a 13-time convicted felon, told his girlfriend to dispose of the weapon before heading to the hospital, the paper said.

When the ex-con finally went to the hospital, a balloon of marijuana slipped out of his anus while a doctor was operating on the gunshot wound, court records show.

Cops also arrived at the hospital when alerted of the gunshot wound and searched Wilson’s car where they discovered a bag of meth in the blood-stained jeans he was wearing when he shot himself. The officers issued an arrest warrant for Wilson and he turned himself in to police on April 18.

As he was being processed at the Chelan County Regional Justice Center, Wilson was strip-searched and another balloon of marijuana slipped from his anus, the paper said.

While in jail, Wilson made a number of calls to his girlfriend and asked her not to cooperate with investigators working on his case. Authorities were listening in on the calls.

The convicted felon was charged with possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of meth, possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility, and four counts of tampering with a witness.

Wilson was being held on $110,000 bail and is due in court on June 18.

Illegal alien charged with mass rape and murder is found hiding in Massachusetts

An illegal Guatemalan alien who was first deported in 2004, has been  arrested in Massachusetts where he had been hiding to avoid charges in his homeland of the rape and mass murder of at least 70 women and 107 children, all of whom were members of the Maya Achi indigenous people.

From MassLive.com, Springfield, Mass.

An undocumented Guatemalan accused of sexually assaulting indigenous women before they were slaughtered in a 1982 massacre was caught hiding in Massachusetts, federal authorities said.

Francisco Cuxum Alvarado, 64, was found in Waltham on April 30 nearly a year after Interpol sent a notice looking for him, according to a federal affidavit. Alvarado told a federal immigration agent that he was a member of the Rabinal civil defense patrol, one of several militias that helped Guatemalan armed forces in the massacres of the indigenous Maya Achi people in the early 1980s.

Alvarado, who was once deported after illegally entering the country in 2004, was arrested on April 30 and charged with illegal re-entry, a felony. He was arraigned Tuesday on the re-entry charge and detained.

“Mr. Cuxum Alvarado is in Massachusetts illegally, evading accountability for human rights violations in Guatemala,” U.S. District Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said. “While many immigrants come to this country seeking a better life, Mr. Cuxum Alvarado came here illegally, to escape a dark, criminal past. This case highlights the important work of Homeland Security Investigations and [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] in identifying and removing war criminals, human rights violators, and other dangerous aliens who illegally seek a safe haven in the United States.”

Local, federal government officials can’t agree over basic facts in ICE courthouse arrests; judge may need more evidence

Judge Indira Talwani said she needed to “dig in” and may need additional evidence from the federal government and the local district attorneys suing.

According to the affidavit, authorities in Guatemala charged Alvarado in May 2018 with crimes against humanity for allegedly participating in the mass sexual assault of Maya Achi women of Rio Negro on May 13, 1982.

The 1982 attack was one of several in the Rio Negro massacres that left more than 400 Maya Achi people dead. Hundreds of others were forcibly evicted.

Most of the men had been killed or had fled by the time Guatemalan armed forces and civil defense patrols entered the village on May 13, 1982. The soldiers forced the remaining women and children to march out of the village, according to the affidavit.

The women and children were threatened, beaten and raped by soldiers and civil defense patrol members. Then they were hanged, stabbed with machetes or shot in an area called Cerro Pacoxom. At least 70 women and 107 children were murdered, according to the affidavit.

Years after the country’s civil war ended, Guatemalan investigators looked into Alvarado’s alleged role in the 1982 attack. In 2018, the Guatemalan government charged him in the mass sexual assaults, the affidavit states.

It is unclear when Alvarado re-entered the United States, but he could not be located in Guatemala when he was charged. The Guatemalan government obtained an Interpol notice about Alvarado on May 28, 2018, asking law enforcement agencies worldwide to provisionally arrest him pending extradition.

Matthew Langille, a special agent with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations, wrote in the affidavit that Alvarado admitted to being a member of the Rabinal civil defense patrols between 1980 and 1984, during the time of the attacks.

“Homeland Security Investigations looks forward to the disturbing and egregious allegations against this individual being openly and fairly adjudicated in federal court,” said Peter C. Fitzhugh, special agent in charge of HSI in Boston.

Not a joke: Cybersecurity company FireEye invites Hillary Clinton to speak on cyber defense

Useful idiots (definition): People who are unwitting propagandists for a cause, the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

In the case of a publicly-traded, Silicon Valley cybersecurity company called FireEye, they aren’t just useful idiots, they are plain idiots.

While she was secretary of state in the Obama administration, instead of using the State Department’s secure server for her email, Hillary Clinton used an illegal private server in her basement for her email, including sending and receiving classified material. Her people also tried to conceal evidence by scrubbing the private server. When asked about that, Hillary feigned innocence, saying she didn’t know what it meant to “wipe” a server: “What, like with a cloth or something? I don’t know how it works digitally at all.” (Fox News)

Hillary should have been indicted and jailed, but before the FBI even opened an investigation of her illegal private server, she was exonerated by corrupt FBI director James Comey.

And yet cybersecurity company FireEye has seen fit to invite Hillary Clinton to deliver the keynote speech at the 2019 Cyber Defense Summit, October 9-10, in Washington, DC.

FireEye made the announcement in a tweet on May 30, 2019:

We are pleased to announce that Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be a featured keynote at our in October! Secretary Clinton will engage in an intimate Q&A keynote discussion with Kevin Mandia.

On its website, FireEye touts the Cyber Defense Summit as an opportunity for executives and security practitioners to hear “informative and insightful keynotes from industry thought leaders,” “share best practices, learn about the latest advancements, and enhance your cyber preparedness,” and learn how to “mitigate, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.”

FireEye’s tweet rightly received these incredulous responses on Twitter:

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHA”

“This is a parody, right?”

“Is this satire”

“Is this a bad joke??? Unbelievable…”

“Are you trying to become the biggest joke in the industry?”

“Congratulations! You are now the laughingstock of the entire industry!”

“The irony is unreal. Or is this a summit about how not to practice cyber security?”

“Is this the ? paid to speak about cyber security. Thanks for the laugh today”

“Are you giving out swag bags with smash blackberries, hammer, Mini servers and bleach bit?”

“Let me guess, John Podesta wasn’t available to talk about the importance of easy to remember passwords”

“I want to learn how to make emails go missing and how to properly smash a hard drive. When do tickets go on sale?”

“I would like to register for the breakout session on how to efficiently delete 33K emails. If full, sign me up instead for the session on how to safely handle BleachBit.”

“America is assuming either u don’t know/don’t care that allowed foreign governments to hack her private server with TS info. Way to reward a person that allowed Rone, Bub, Stevens and Smith to be killed and lie about it to America & in the Faces of their Families”

“Very poor business decision. You alienate half due to politics then the rest based on the fact you actually believe she is qualified. How can anyone recommend or use or based on their belief that her cyber awareness and actions were appropriate?

FireEye is the same company that the Clinton Foundation in 2016 hired to investigate a possible data breach. The company found that no files from the foundation had leaked publicly. (Fortune)

After most deadly weekend of violence this year, Chiraq still racking up the shootings (24 as of Wednesday)

New Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot is going to have her hands full…

Last weekend, Chiraq saw the worst weekend of gun violence so far this year. Fifty people were shot with 10 killed. Over Memorial Day weekend, 32 people were shot – 5 fatally.

When the homosexual, POC mayor Lori Lightfoot was elected, she proclaimed, “Well, get ready because reform is here. I campaigned on change, you voted for change, and I plan to deliver change to our government.”

Also, “…there’s no higher calling than restoring safety and peace in our neighborhoods” and promised to develop a more proactive strategy against violence.”

What has the good mayor been tweeting about since Memorial Day weekend?

“She got one! @LightfootForChi on summer safety tour stops for a quick game of #bags

“Her first act as mayor — signing an executive order limiting aldermanic power — in retrospect looks like what she had promised voters: the initial step of a long march to reform of City Hall.” #BringInTheLight”

I see Mayor Lightfoot retained her ball handling skills. Good to see her out at the season opener of the Chicago Sky. Now let’s get a win!”

“Our family – and many LGBTQ+ Chicagoans – are fortunate to live in a city that supported LGBTQ+ rights long before they were officially legal. That’s why, as mayor, I am so proud to represent all Chicago communities.

NOT ONE WORD about the gun violence throughout her city.

Meanwhile, the violence continues:

8 shot, 1 killed Monday in Chicago
9 shot, 1 killed Tuesday in Chicago
7 shot, 2 killed Wednesday in Chicago

Good luck, Chiraq. You’re going to need it!

74 y.o. white man pushed off bus by black woman dies

The elderly white man, 74, who was pushed off a bus by a young black woman, 25, has died from injuries sustained from the fall.

On March 21, 2019, Cadesha Bishop, 25, argued with 74-year-old Serge Fournier on a bus in Las Vegas. Seconds later, as Fournier was exiting the bus using a walker, Bishop pushed him with both hands off the bus. Fournier landed face-down and motionless on the sidewalk.

Here’s the surveillance video of the incident:

When officers first arrived at the scene of the incident, Fournier said he didn’t want to receive any medical attention even though he was bleeding from the head. However, later that night, he was admitted to a hospital. He died on April 23 from injuries sustained from the fall. The coroner ruled the death a homicide. The cause of death was described as complications from blunt force trauma to the torso.

Bishop had fled the scene of the crime before police arrived. It was only after Fournier’s family notified police on May 3 that he had passed away that Bishop was arrested three days later, on May 6.

​Bishop has been charged with the murder of an elderly, vulnerable person. Police officials say that Bishop had been yelling profanities at people on the bus. When the bus stopped, Bishop and Fournier began to argue after Fournier told her to “be nicer to passengers.”

Bishop was held at the Clark County Detention Center on a $100,000 bail. She has since been released and placed under electronic monitoring. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 17 and she will remain under house arrest until that time, according to the Las Vegas Journal-Review.

Court records in Clark County, Nevada indicate Cadesha Bishop has a history of violence:

  • In March of 2012, she was charged with battery in a domestic violence case. Bishop agreed to a plea deal: she had to complete community service and “impulse control counseling” and to remain out of trouble.
  • In January 2013, Bishop was again charged with battery. She pleaded guilty more than a year later, and got a suspended jail sentence of 90 days, domestic violence counseling, and more community service.

Alabama passes bill requiring child molesters be castrated

On May 15, 2019, Alabama’s Republican governor Kay Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act— America’s most restrictive anti-abortion law that makes it a felony for doctors to perform or attempt to perform an abortion in the state. The new law allows no exceptions for rape or incest but does allow for abortions in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.

Alabama’s anti-abortion law provoked these responses from the Left:

  • Feminist, attorney, and NYT columnist Jill Filipovic proposeed a requirement that a quarter inch be cut off of a mans’s penis for every pregnancy he creates.
  • Being the exhibitionist narcissist that she is, actress Emily Ratajkowski posted to Instagram a nude photo of herself in protest.
  • U.N. human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani expressed “concern” that Alabama and several other states, including Georgia, passed laws “severely restricting access to safe abortion for women,” which would “jeopardize” women’s life, health and safety by driving them underground.

Now, Alabama is doing another good thing.

The New York Daily News reports (via Syracuse.com) today that the Alabama Legislature has passed a bill that would require chemical castration of child molesters over age 21 who have abused a child younger than 13.

The bill, known as HB379, would make the measure a condition of parole. Convicted sex offenders would have to undergo chemical castration before leaving prison, both as punishment and to prevent them from harming more children in the future.

The legislation has been introduced before, but this is the first time it has passed both the state House and Senate.

It now awaits Gov. Kay Ivey’s signature.

Attorney Raymond Johnson told WIAT the measure could be seen as a violation of the Eighth Amendment, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment, and predicted it would be challenged in court: “They’re going to claim that it is cruel and unusual punishment for someone who has served their time and for the rest of their life have to be castrated.”

But State Rep. Steve Hurst (R-Calhoun County), HB 379’s chief sponsor, maintains that the bill would prevent other children from being hurt. He told WIAT:

“They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime. I had people call me in the past when I introduced it and said, don’t you think this is inhumane? I asked them what’s more inhumane than when you take a little infant child, and you sexually molest that infant child when the child cannot defend themselves or get away, and they have to go through all the things they have to go through? If you want to talk about inhumane—that’s inhumane.”

Some objections to the bill were framed around whether or not the measure would actually work. State Rep. Sam Jones (D-Mobile) said: “A molester is still going to molest. Medication won’t do it.”

According to to a July 2010 Harvard Medical School Mental Health Letter, “Pessimism about pedophilia“, drugs that suppress production of the male hormone testosterone are used to reduce the frequency or intensity of a pedophile’s sexual desire, but it may take 3 to 10 months for testosterone suppression to reduce sexual desire. The health letter notes that “physical castration is another option“.

The Harvard mental health letter says pedophilia is incurable:

There is no cure, so the focus is on protecting children.

Pedophilia, the sexual attraction to children who have not yet reached puberty, remains a vexing challenge for clinicians and public officials. Classified as a paraphilia, an abnormal sexual behavior, researchers have found no effective treatment. Like other sexual orientations, pedophilia is unlikely to change. The goal of treatment, therefore, is to prevent someone from acting on pedophile urges — either by decreasing sexual arousal around children or increasing the ability to manage that arousal. But neither is as effective for reducing harm as preventing access to children, or providing close supervision.

Here are other interesting points in the Harvard health letter:

  • Estimates of recidivism of convicted pedophiles vary because studies define “recidivism” term in different ways. The estimates range from 10% to 50%. One long-term study of previously convicted pedophiles (with an average follow-up of 25 years) found a 25% recidivism rate for heterosexual pedophiles, and 50% recidivism for homosexual or bisexual pedophiles.
  • Experts estimate that only one in 20 cases of child sexual abuse is reported.
  • Nearly all people with pedophilic tendencies are male. Studies of child molesters have reported that only 1% to 6% of perpetrators are female.
  • Several reports have concluded that most people with pedophilic tendencies eventually act on their sexual urges in some way.
  • Fears about predatory behavior are valid. Most pedophiles who act on their impulses do so by manipulating children and gradually desensitizing them to inappropriate behavior. Then they escalate it. Pedophiles are able to do this because in most cases they already know the children or have access to them. In about 60% to 70% of child sexual abuse cases involving pedophiles, the perpetrator is a relative, neighbor, family friend, teacher, coach, clergyman, or someone else in regular contact with the child.

Insanity in Seattle: Homeless man attempts to kidnap child. Guess how many previous arrests/convictions he has…

I don’t even know where to begin with this. Well, actually I do.

The demorat-run, liberal utopia of Seattle has a major homeless crisis.

The bureaucrats in that city and King County do nothing to actually address the real problems (drug addiction and mental health issues). Instead, they coddle the homeless and try to mislead the public on just how bad the homeless crisis is. Just search our web site for “Seattle” to read through the many posts I’ve done about their homeless/crime situation.

The King County prosecutor, Dan Satterberg, is a demorat who believes that “not all of society’s most complicated issues can be solved in a courtroom or with a prison cell.”

How’s that approach working for King County? Just last month from KIRO:

“There’s been a massive call to action after a damning report on the 100 most prolific offenders in Seattle. Business owners are fed up and want the criminals locked up for good. KIRO 7 has documented the same criminals being arrested over and over again. These offenders committed thousands of crimes in Seattle in just two months last year. Now, two-thirds of them are suspected of committing still more crimes since this report came out –107 new crimes in all.”

This liberal ideology of criminal justice reform (catch and release) and compassion for the homeless via taxation has resulted in zero deterrents in Seattle and King County for the criminals and homeless. Absolutely no deterrents.

Proof of this comes from MyNorthwest.com about a homeless criminal, with severe mental health issues, who attempted to kidnap a child. He has an EXTENSIVE criminal record:

A 47-year-old man charged last week with a violent attempt to kidnap a 9-year-old girl and break into a South Seattle apartment has been arrested 104 previous times in King County over the last 14 years, according to court records.

Seattle police arrested Randolph Neil Humiston on May 30th at 14th Ave. South and South Henderson Street after he allegedly grabbed and dragged a girl on a playground, according to charging documents.

Prosecutors say the girl kicked and screamed at Humiston until he released her.

Ernesto Martinez, who lives a short distance from the playground told KIRO 7 he first saw Humiston when he broke into Martinez’s apartment while his family was having dinner. “I never saw him before, but I saw him, and I yelled and chased him,” Martinez said. Seattle police say Martinez chased Humiston for several blocks until patrol cars arrived and arrested Humiston — for the 105th time since 2005.

“I told the police that if he actually took a little girl, they would be arresting me instead of that guy. I mean, I’m not going to let that happen.”

Court records indicate many times, Humiston was released within a day or two after being arrested, and he consistently listed his address as the Compass Housing Alliance in Seattle, indicating he is homeless.

Prosecutors noted Humiston was placed in the jail’s psych ward in 2017, and would “likely commit an act of violence,” if released.

Records indicate a few of the cases were dismissed because Humiston was found to be incompetent.

Humiston’s career criminal conviction resume’ includes four felonies, and 38 gross misdemeanors including “Threats to Kill, Assault, Resisting Arrest, Stalking, Escape, Indecent Exposure, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon and many Vehicle Prowl” and multiple drug convictions, according to court records.

Humiston is currently being held on $150,000 bail. Martinez told KIRO 7 he will look for Humiston “In case he gets out again.”

“Somebody who’s trying to grab a little kid, especially when they’re all drugged up? He shouldn’t be out,” Martinez said. “If he gets out, it’s not a threat or anything, but if I see him here? I’m not going to just chase him, I’m going to tackle him.”

————————

Keep electing these demorats, you silly Seattle voters. Just remember this: As Lophatt frequently reminds us, “They don’t work for us.”

Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall says “some people are forced to commit violent acts”

The words “personal responsibility” do not exist in a liberal’s dictionary.

With all the tax-payer funded and private charity safety nets available (As an example, see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), how exactly is someone FORCED to commit violent acts to make ends meet?
