California DMV license/voter registration going as planned.
From East Bay Times: An internal audit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles released Monday shows about 1,500 customers may have been improperly registered to vote.
“Approximately 1,500 customers may have been registered to vote in error,” the DMV wrote in a letter Monday to the Secretary of State’s Office. “This error has been corrected and is separate from the processing error we notified you about in writing on September 5.” Non-citizens are among the affected customers, according to Jessica Gonzalez, a DMV spokeswoman.
In early September, the DMV revealed it sent 23,000 erroneous voter registrations. These additional 1,500 errors occurred when DMV technicians processed customer requests at field offices to change voter eligibility responses on driver license applications.
The DMV said none of the processing errors occurred through the fault of the customer. None of the affected customers are undocumented immigrants illegal aliens.
“We have worked quickly with the Department of Technology to correct these errors and have also updated the programming and added additional safeguards to improve this process,” DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said.
Secretary of State Alex Padilla responded with a harsh letter to the state’s DMV and Department of Technology.
“I remain deeply frustrated and disappointed that persistent errors by the DMV and CDT have undermined public confidence in your basic responsibility to collect and transmit accurate voter registration information, as has been required by federal law for 25 years.”
Assemblyman Jim Patterson, R-Fresno, was even more critical, calling the situation “the unraveling of a cover-up.”
“Nothing surprises me anymore coming out of the DMV,” Patterson said. “This is probably the tip of the iceberg. I think we can expect more of these kind of registration problems.”
“This is the type of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live. Here is video from 6 Oct showing Antifa directing traffic in downtown & threatening people who don’t obey with violence. Mayor @tedwheeler, who really runs this town?”
“And here is video of an elderly man who didn’t heed their street orders — so they chased him down. #Portland”
Antifa thugs call a white motorist “whitey.”
They threatenviolence at motorists.
Someone says a “little whitey” is in the KKKbecause he won’t listen to their illegal commands.
Antifa thug calls a guy with a license plate from North Carolina the KKK.
All this violence and Portland Police DO NOTHING.
Unbelievable that a progressive city would allow mob rule in their streets. /sarc
Catch the bast*rd and lock him up. This violence coming from the progressives MUST STOP.
Don’t forget this madness:
From Fox News: In the wake of his vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday, Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., revealed to Fox News on Sunday that his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, and that someone has publicly posted the names and addresses of his family members.
Late last month, Gardner received a letter from an anonymous individual apparently in Denver, alleging that Kavanaugh had “shoved” someone up against a wall “very aggressively and sexually” during an outing in 1998 in front of four witnesses. The allegation was later deemed not to be credible.
“Every victim of abuse, assault, and violence has been through an unspeakable tragedy and we need to do a better job listening to them, ensuring support is available, and fighting to end abuse of any kind,” Gardner said in a statement prior to receiving the graphic text messages. “I hope that the partisan divide we all feel today does not hinder the people that have bravely come forward.”
The apparent intimidation efforts follow reports from Capitol police that the Democratic congressional aide accused of publishing the private information (known as “doxxing”) of at least three Republican lawmakers last month also allegedly threatened to leak senators’ children’s health information if a witness told anyone about his activities.
The Catholic Church is a fifth column that actively works to undermine the United States from within.
Simply put, illegal “immigration” is against the law. But the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church on the US-Mexico border in San Ysidro, California, plans to install a hideous 40-ft. statue of Mary, the mother of Jesus, “as a symbol intended to welcome immigrants and refugees headed to the U.S.”.
The San Diego Union Tribune reports that the statue, named “Welcome the Stranger”, is designed by artist Jim Bliesner who says the statue is inspired by Mary, who had fled with her family to Egypt as a refugee soon after the birth of Jesus, and that “it will stand as a beacon of hope and encouragement for people engaged in the struggle of the migrant.”
The $2 million statue will go up on the hilltop parking lot of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. The project is spearheaded by nonprofit San Diego Organizing Project, and already has $1 million from the California Endowment, a private health foundation. On October 5, “community members” convened to kick off a crowdfunding campaign to raise another $1 million to build the statue by early 2019.
Bishop Robert McElroy, of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego, said the monument and its location will send a strong message about the border: “It is a symbol and powerful reminder that for us, for us as people of faith, for us as America, the border represents not a line of separation, but a line that unites us to Latin America.”
McElroy said the statue will be a reminder that the U.S. is a nation of immigrants who contributed to “help build America.” It also will represent hope for a brighter future for the waves of immigrants and refuges who one day will begin “an arduous journey” to the U.S.
In a 2017 interview with America: The Jesuit Review, the Catholic magazine that withdrew its endorsement of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, McElroy said “in the Diocese of San Diego we have 200,000 Catholics who are undocumented. We simply can’t stand by and watch them get deported.”
Richard Sipe, the renowned expert in clerical sex abuse who passed away on August 10, 2018, published his private correspondence with McElroy proving that the bishop had been made aware of McCarrick’s sexual harassment of seminarians.
In a letter dated July 28, 2016, which was “hand delivered” to Bishop McElroy on August 30, Sipe wrote:
Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has been reported by numerous seminarians and priests of sexual advances and activity. A settlement with one priest was effected by Stephen Rubino, Esq….
Priests or seminarians who speak up about a sexually active superior are threatened with the loss of everything — employment, status, etc. Those who report are greeted with disbelief or even derision if they know but were not personally involved. If they were a partner in the sexual activity and “come out” they become a pariah and labeled a traitor.
I have interviewed twelve seminarians and priests who attest to propositions, harassment, or sex with McCarrick, who has stated, “I do not like to sleep alone.”
One priest incardinated in McCarrick’s Archdiocese of Newark was taken to bed for sex and was told, “this is how priests do it in the U.S.” None so far has found the ability to speak openly at the risk of reputation and retaliation.
The system protects its impenetrability with intimidation, secrecy and threat. Clergy and laity are complicit.
In spite of these detailed allegations about McCarrick’s homosexual predation, McElroy said and did nothing, offering no response to Sipe.
Good. Make an example out of this unhinged demorat.
From Fox News: The arrest of a Democratic congressional intern this week for allegedly publishing the private information of three Republican lawmakers, with police investigating more possible incidents, underscores what has become an increasingly confrontational approach by the anti-Trump ‘resistance.’
Jackson Cosko, who recently worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, was arrested for posting the personal information of Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on Wikipedia — including their home addresses.
Fox News learned Wednesday that Capitol Hill police are investigating additional doxxing incidents involving at least two senators, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. It was not clear if Cosko — who worked with other Democratic lawmakers including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and former Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. — was involved.
Cosko had worked in a host of roles in the House and Senate, including as press assistant and legislative correspondent, according to his LinkedIn page.
Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Thursday that the wide range of charges against Cosko, including witness tampering and burglary, suggests there could be more to the case than meets the eye.
“With seven different charges out there, it really does makes it sound like it’s more sophisticated and widespread because now you see Sen. Rand Paul is also having issues,” he said, although he added that it wasn’t clear if Cosko was connected to the Paul case.
While it was not clear what the motivation was behind the posting of personal information (known as “doxxing”), Graham, Lee and Hatch have been outspoken defenders of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual assault allegations against him. The doxxing on Thursday came moments after Graham had scorched Senate Democrats in a fiery speech for what he called “an unethical sham” in their treatment of Kavanaugh.
The incident marks the latest in escalating attacks against Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials — particularly in relation to the Kavanaugh controversy — by far left-wing activists, which have occasionally picked up the support of Democratic lawmakers.
A day after the doxxing, two female activists cornered Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in an elevator on Friday and screamed at him, with one of them repeatedly demanding he look at her as she accused him of suggesting her own sexual assault “doesn’t matter.”
Moments later, Flake demanded an FBI investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh — forcing GOP leaders, faced with little room for error on Senate votes, to accede. It was not clear if the dressing down caused Flake to waver, but he later told The Atlantic that the incident “struck a chord.”
Days earlier on Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife Heidi were hounded out of a restaurant by protesters peppering the senator with questions about Kavanaugh and chanting “we believe survivors” and “cancel Kavanaugh.” His Democratic opponent in the Texas Senate race, Beto O’Rouke, condemned the incident and said his family “should be treated with respect.”
The tactic of hounding lawmakers and Trump officials out of restaurants became more prevalent in June, when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were driven out of restaurants amid the backlash over the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border.
That move was encouraged by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who days later called on supporters to confront Trump officials in public spaces.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she told a crowd.
In July, Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ., who recently compared himself to Thracian gladiator Spartacus, told supporters to go to Capitol Hill and “get in the face of some congresspeople.”
This week, Republicans have been pushing back against such tactics. Some have pointed to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., at a Republican baseball practice last year as a reminder of how heated rhetoric can lead to much worse.
Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Paul, wrote in an open letter to Sen. Booker, saying that she now keeps a loaded gun by her bed after her family has “experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level.”
“I would call on you to retract your statement,” she said. “I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.”
The Daily Caller reported that Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., and his wife were chased through Reagan National Airport by activists — who kept yelling at him even as he tried to use the bathroom.
On the Senate floor on Wednesday, Perdue blamed Democrats for inciting such behavior, and read quotes he said were inciting harassment of Republicans in public.
“This is America, but these are the tactics of the Brownshirts in Germany in the 1930s, Mr. President,” he said. “Unacceptable. Totally irresponsible.”
Lady Gaga and her Clinton buddies: #BelieveWomen, but only of a certain political persuasion.
Lady Gaga says she was raped at 19 and as a result, suffers from PTSD. In the past, she teamed up with Joe Biden to help sexual assault survivors.
Wonder if this starlet has ever reached out to the sexual assault survivor Juanita Broaddrick? I’m going with NO. What a Hollyweird hypocrite.
From Hollywood Reporter: Lady Gaga stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night to discuss all things A Star Is Born, as well as share her thoughts on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
When asked if she was willing to talk politics, Gaga said “bring it on.” Of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by multiple women including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Gaga, who has been open in the past about her own sexual assault, said the ongoing “debate of Kavanaugh versus Dr. Ford is one of the most upsetting things I have ever witnessed.”
“But I will tell you something,” she continued. “Should we trust that [Dr. Ford] remembered the assault? Yes. And I’ll tell you exactly why. She’s a psychologist, she’s no dummy. And when someone experiences trauma, the brain changes. It takes the trauma and puts it in a box so that we can survive the pain.” A vote to confirm the highly controversial Trump pick to the Supreme Court is set to be held Saturday. Kavanaugh has denied all the claims against him.
Gaga added that she believes Ford was probably “triggered” when she realized Kavanaugh would be nominated and she decided to “protect this country.”
(At this point, the article doesn’t expand on any of her claims about Kavanaugh or Ford, it merely moves on to her latest movie. Because when you’ve got a movie to promote #believewomen can take a back seat.)
The pop star-turned-actress was also on hand to promote her new film A Star Is Born, which she stars in with director and writer Bradley Cooper. The film is the fourth iteration of the classic tale of a young up-and-coming star who falls in love with an older, established one whose career is fading as hers takes off. The project is Cooper’s directorial debut and Gaga’s big screen acting debut, although she previously won a Golden Globe for her role on American Horror Story: Hotel.
Of how she got the part, she said that she sang at a charity event the night before she met with Cooper. After he heard her sing “La Vie en Rose,” he wanted to meet with her, and they had an immediate connection. Of first meeting her future director and co-star, Gaga said, “There’s a lot of fake people in Hollywood but Bradley is not one of them.”
And although Gaga is a Grammy-winning artist, she’s not the only one who has a natural singing ability. She told Colbert that she was blown away by Cooper’s singing voice when she first heard it. “That man, he sings from his gut, from his soul and you can be technically perfect, but with no ability to tell a story, and he tells a story when he sings,” she said, adding, “I was drawn to his passion.”
Her character Ally may be a rising pop star, but Gaga said the similarities between her and her character end there. “My character Ally is very different than I was. I knew I had something to say and I wanted to say it… but she’s not that way,” she said, explaining that, “she’s in her 30s and she’s given up. She’s been told she’s not beautiful enough to make it and truthfully she’s insecure.”

“There’s no room for guns. Obviously you’re not going to be able to take every gun out, I don’t know how you can do that. There’s so many around now, today. But if there’s some stipulations behind it or some penalties, some big time penalties or rules or regulations about carrying firearms, legal or illegal, people will second-guess themselves.”
“It’s a tragedy and we’ve seen these schools and these tragedies happen in America and there’s been no change to gun control. We have a kid who wasn’t legal — legally not able to go to get a beer at a bar, but could go buy a AR-14 or an AR-15? Like, is that? How? It doesn’t make sense. And I’m not saying that he should be legal to go buy a beer, but I’m saying, how is it possible that we can have minors to go buy a gun? I don’t have the answer to it.“
FYI: The Parkland shooter was not a minor, he was 19 years old.
There’s been a rash of burglaries at Hollyweird homes so LeBron is beefing up his security.
The progressive utopia of Seattle has some serious problems. The liberal bureaucrats in that city do not hold the homeless accountable for the crimes they commit. The Seattle Police and City Council have a contentious relationship which is so bad that a historical number of police are leaving the department.
Criminals are free to rob and steal without having to worry about the police arriving in time to catch them.
Last Friday a convenience store in Magnolia was robbed. Two criminals busted into the store at 3:05 a.m. Seattle Police arrived at 4:22 a.m.
On top of that, as of Tuesday morning Seattle Police still hadn’t assigned a detective to the case. The owner is so frustrated that he’s doing his own investigation.
“The owner, who goes by Sam, got a call from his alarm company about the break-in but was out of town. He instructed the company to call 911 but had to watch it happen, live, on his phone. “It was torture, because I couldn’t do anything,” he said.
The two thieves broke through the bottom, glass part of the door with a chunk of cement, and then set off some kind of smoke bomb as they ransacked the store. They stole cash, lottery tickets, cigarettes, and beer.
They took off in a red pickup truck, but then returned just minutes later, parking nearby and coming in once again to steal more.
“We basically lost about $15,000 worth of product and most of that was cigarettes,” Sam’s business partner, Brian Burns, said. He received a worried call from Sam the morning of the burglary. Sam asked him to go down to the store, make sure it was secure, and wait for police.
“The store was wide open,” he said, “and there wasn’t anybody coming out to help or what have you. It was just a real weird, eerie feeling.”
Police finally arrived more an hour after the first burglary, a move Burns called “ridiculous.”
Burns says he tried to tell police about their lead from the surveillance video and explain that they needed to get the video before it was erased, he said they acted like it wasn’t a big deal. “He said, ‘Well, a detective hasn’t been assigned to the case yet,” Burns said. “He said, ‘We can’t do anything until a detective’s been assigned to the case, that’s the way it works. I said, ‘Well, is there a way to get a detective assigned to a case? Because time is of the essence.’”
As for why it took so long for the police to respond?
“Police said the call was classified the wrong way — not as an emergency. Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said the call initially came in as a simple alarm call, not as a crime in progress. When it was upgraded to a verified break-in, it became a priority two call. But it should have been a priority one, or emergency, call.
“A crime in progress will always get a faster response than a crime that has happened in the past,” Whitcomb said. “We’re not sure why this wasn’t classified as a priority one call.”
Police also blamed the slow response time on lower staffing and call volume.
KIRO 7 obtained data from June of 2016, 2017, and 2018. It shows median Seattle police response times to priority three calls have increased by 14 minutes from 2016 to 2018.
Priority two call responses increased by five minutes over the same time period, and priority one, known as emergency calls, slightly increased from 6.05 minutes in June of 2016 to 6.34 minutes in June of 2018.
On October 2 Steven Crowder posted the above video. Crowder went to Texas Christian University (TCU) and set up his “Change My Mind” table. The goal was to have students discuss the myth of rape culture with him and convince him that “rape culture” does exist in this country.
The video is long yet offers a glimpse into the mindset of college students today. Some of my favorite statements from these young skulls of mush:
“I’m honestly not talking about empirical data at all, and I don’t think we should look at it. Empirical data is bullsh*t.”
“I usually believe the woman until proven otherwise.” (Said by a male student who doesn’t believe that’s how our laws should work but we should believe her for the “most part.”)
Crowder later accuses said male student of an act and the male student says, “Where’s your evidence? Crowder: “Why does that matter?” Male student: “You have to have evidence.”
Later in this exchange Crowder tells male student:“You did say believe the women until otherwise.” The male student says you need to “disprove” the accusation.
Crowder explains due process. The male student then says, “I think I might have misspoken.”
Crowder has another discussion with a different male student who really doesn’t want to discuss rape culture. He would rather discuss the method of dialogue that Crowder chose.
This male student has a hard time “articulating” rape culture because it’s very complicated.
Crowder tries to get him to explain the nuances of rape culture and this male student eventually says,“I’m not going to be able to articulate it, I don’t have any facts, I don’t have figures, I don’t have anything.”
The male student later says, “My point was, I really didn’t want to talk about rape culture, because I’m not prepared, I don’t know what to say about it. I don’t know how to articulate that I think it’s an issue.I don’t even know how to tell you I came to think it’s an issue.It’s just something I learned along the way.”
Keep in mind that these students voluntarily sat down with Crowder for a conversation. They made that choice.
Yet because of Crowder’s mere presence, the kids now might require counseling. TCU tweeted the following:
“Today, Steven Crowder chose to challenge our students on a public sidewalk in front of the university. While the Constitution gives him the right to express his views, the sentiments he expressed do not align with TCU’s values.”
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America, kills 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every day. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion — $400 million of which came from taxpayers. As Senator Rand Paul said in his speech on August 23 on the Senate floor:
“Planned Parenthood received over 400 million dollars of taxpayer money [a year], the government with a wink and a nod tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions but everybody knows that the taxpayers are really cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills.”
This is what Planned Parenthood Abortionhood is doing with your tax dollars.
Fearing that if confirmed, Kavanaugh would be the 5th Supreme Court vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, Planned Abortionhood has spent nearly $1 million in a campaign to “#StopKavanaugh”.
Yesterday, the abortion mill took a step further and is now threatening to go after senators (“we’re coming for you”) who’ll vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee U.S. District Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh. (Daily Wire)
This is what Planned Abortionhood tweeted yesterday morning:
Roses are red
Violets are blue Vote NO on #Kavanaugh Or else we’re coming for you
Commenter Qackerjak on Voat has the best response to Planned Parenthood’s threat:
What’s PP think they’re going to do? Shove a pair of scissors into their skulls? Rip off their arms & legs? Cut up their bodies and sell them for parts? If they think they can, let them try. Conservatives are not tiny little defenseless babies… we’ll kick their asses from here to China.
Pro-aborts don’t just kill defenseless unborn babies.
They also assault adults.
Micaiah Bilger reports for LifeNews.com that on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018, at the annual Life Chain — a peaceful, prayer-filled event to publicly witness to the tragedy of abortion — in downtown Toronto, Canada, a pro-abort man wearing a pentagram necklace high-kicked a pro-life young woman, Campaign Life Coalition’s youth coordinator Marie-Claire Bissonnette.
Bissonnette said that the man first took out markers and defaced two of Campaign Life Coalition’s signs. Bissonnette took out her cell phone and began to record him, telling him that his defacing and destruction of private property was against the law. The man then roundhouse-kicked Bissonnette; her phone drops to the ground as she asks for someone to call the police.
After the video went viral and an appeal was made to the public to identify the pro-abort assailant, Toronto hair salon Noble Studio 101 posted a message on Instagram identifying the man as their employee Jordan Hunt, whom the salon had fired after seeing the video.
In the event that YouTube censors the video by removing it, I had this GIF made of Jordan Hunt’s assault on Bissonnette:
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Jordan Hunt also scribbled on several pro-lifers’ clothes, including those of a 10-year-old girl.
Bissonnette saidshe was not the only person targeted Sunday during the Life Chains. In Mississagua, someone walked up to a pro-life advocate from behind and poured paint over his clothes while he was praying. She wrote for LifeSiteNews:
“I’ve participated in many public pro-life activities throughout my life. This isn’t the first time I’ve been attacked. Rocks have been thrown at me. I’ve been spat upon multiple times and pushed. Men have aggressively asked how I would like it if they raped me and forced me to have an abortion. There is a media-driven narrative that pro-life activists are violent and a danger to women. This is a bald-faced lie. The only violence or aggression I’ve witnessed in my many years in the pro-life movement comes entirely from pro-abortion activists, and yet it’s rarely, if ever, reported.”
You should know that on August 23, 2018, a pro-life amendment sponsored by Sen. Rand Paul to revoke taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood failed in the U.S. Senate by a narrow 45-48 vote.
Taxpayers and the 320,000 babies who are killed by Planned Parenthood every year have these four senators to thank, whose “no” votes ensure that the abortion mill continues to be subsidized by our tax dollars.
