Liberal utopia achieved: San Francisco ends cash bail for all criminal cases

Newly elected San Francisco District Attorney, Chesa Boudin, ran on this issue.

He is the son of Weather Underground terrorists and was raised by Bill Ayers.

Yesterday the DA announced that his office will no longer ask for cash bail as a condition for a defendant’s pretrial release.

What could possibly go wrong?

More from SF Gate: Prosecutors will use a “risk-based system” and weigh whether a defendant might flee or pose a threat to public safety. The former public defender has often said that the cash bail system unfairly affects indigent and defendants and people of color.

“For years I’ve been fighting to end this discriminatory and unsafe approach to pretrial detention. From this point forward, pretrial detention will be based on public safety, not on wealth,” Boudin said in a statement.

“Mr. Boudin is in the process of building the largest criminal justice revolving door imaginable, and San Francisco will pay a heavy price for it,” said Tony Montoya, president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association.

President Trump ends birth tourism

Birth tourism is the practice of traveling to another country for the purpose of giving birth in that country. The main reason for birth tourism is to obtain citizenship for the child in a country with birthright citizenship (jus soli). Such a child is sometimes called an “anchor baby” if their citizenship is intended to help their parents obtain permanent residency in the country. Other reasons for birth tourism include access to public schooling, healthcare, sponsorship for the parents in the future, or circumvention of China’s two-child policy that, in 2015, replaced Beijing’s more draconian one-child per-couple policy. Popular destinations for birth tourism include the United States and Canada.

According to The Washington Times, some pregnant foreign women pay as much as $100,000 to be ferried into the U.S. on a visitor’s visa, arriving just in time to give birth on American soil and instantly make their baby a U.S. citizen.

President Trump is putting an end to birth tourism.

Yesterday, Jan. 23, 2020, the Trump administration announced a policy that takes effect today, under which State Department consular officials will now be able to refuse to grant short-term tourism or business visas to women they believe are attempting to travel solely for the purpose of birth tourism. 

The Trump administration called birth tourism “a threat to the security of the United States” because the very integrity of U.S. citizenship is at stake if people are able to trick their way into obtaining legal status and its benefits for their newborns. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said: “The birth tourism industry threatens to overburden valuable hospital resources and is rife with criminal activity. Closing this glaring immigration loophole will combat these endemic abuses and ultimately protect the United States from the national security risks created by this practice.”

Carl C. Risch, assistant secretary at the State Department, said:

  • The rules need to take effect immediately, without public hearings or comment, because of the national security implications: “Permitting short-term visitors with no demonstrable ties to the United States to obtain visas to travel to the United States primarily to obtain U.S. citizenship for a child creates a potential long-term vulnerability for national security. Foreign governments or entities, including entities of concern to the United States, may seek to benefit from birth tourism for purposes that would threaten the security of the United States.”
  • Under current law, there is nothing specifically illegal in asking for a visa to come to the U.S. to give birth. In fact, U.S. embassies and consulates report a growing number of people who list giving birth as their stated reason for asking for a visa.
  • Only women believed to be traveling specifically to give birth on tourist visas will be denied. Women seeking visas for other purposes but who are still likely to give birth will continue to be eligible for approval; women coming to the U.S. for specialized medical care for their pregnancies will be able to argue the merits of their cases.

A Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) report last month calculated that about 33,000 women on short-term business or tourism passes, known as B visas, give birth in the U.S. each year. Another 39,000 foreign women on other visas, such as student or work visas, also give birth in the U.S. They would not be subject to the new rule. Neither would the hundreds of thousands of births to illegal immigrant women.

Jessica Vaughan, a former State Department officer and now policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said the new rule is a first step in fixing a big problem, but border officers should be empowered along with State Department employees. Under the U.S. system, the State Department approved the visas, but it’s Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection officers who have final say on admitting people at ports of entry.

Predictably, immigrant rights activists complain that the new rule may lead to overreach by officers who will strain to figure out who should be barred. Kerri Talbot, director of federal advocacy at the Immigration Hub, said: “It is absurd that the Trump administration is turning embassy employees into reproductive policemen. Women will have to conceal their pregnancies just to get a tourist visa to visit the United States.”

Of course, the most permanent solution to birth tourism is to change the U.S.’s “birthright citizenship” policy where almost anyone born on American soil is automatically deemed a citizen. President Trump has talked about attempting to change the policy through executive action but has not followed through. Legal analysts doubt he has the power to change it. There’s a larger debate over whether Congress could change it or whether it would require amending the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

China is a major source of birthright tourism.

Last year, 19 people were accused of running birth tourism operations in Southern California, aimed at wealthy Chinese women who paid up to $100,000 each and were coached on how to get visas and how to conceal their pregnancies from consular officials and border officers. After they entered the U.S., the women were kept in apartments for the final months of their pregnancies so they could deliver on U.S. soil and trigger the automatic citizenship policy.

Last September, one of the 19 pleaded guilty. Her operation, You Win USA Vacation Services Corp., was responsible for 500 birth tourists, and she collected $3 million in fees over two years. But the women who gave birth were not sanctioned because coming to the U.S. to give birth was not against the law. Nor can the citizenship of their born-in-the-USA children be revoked.

In addition to China, Russia is another major source of birth tourism. Ironically, according to news outlets, President Trump’s hotel properties are frequent destinations for Russian birth tourists.

Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee speaks, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash. Inslee was urging the passage of bills enforcing safe gun storage and enhanced background checks when buying or selling assault weapons. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) ORG XMIT: WATW110

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Read the whole story here.

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

The DNC’s use of Stockholm Syndrome

Stock·holm syn·drome

noun: Stockholm syndrome
– feelings of trust or affection felt in many cases of kidnapping or hostage-taking by a victim toward a captor.


This piece is not exhaustive, but just a glorified tweet about what’s been going on.

Day after day since the 2016 election of Donald Trump, the DNC has launched attack after attack on the legally elected president, and against the Americans who voted for him. And they are using their allies in Fake News to make their accusations seem legitimate. “If you don’t belive me, just ask me.”

Here’s my point. The fact that they are allowed to throw a four year tantrum, filled with threats, and not be blocked by some common sense law, is wearing us down. One could begin to reason that maybe if we let these people have their way, maybe they will finally stop hurting us on a daily basis. Yup, that is Stockholm Syndrome, plain and simple. God forbid!!!

They need to be faced with a serious punitive retaliation for this behavior. Their’s is a sick line of reasoning, and cannot be tolerated any more.

My call to all patriots is to never give up, no matter what. Never give up.

That’s all.

Transgender teen’s doctors say gender reassignment surgery has been a “difficult surgical course”

Jazz Jennings for Gillette, promoting the scientifically impossible

Jazz Jennings is a 19-year-old transgender activist who has a reality show to document the experience. The latest season of this TLC show documents the ongoing “gender reassignment” surgery and aftermath.

Excerpts from the People propaganda piece:

“It’s been a year and a half since Jazz Jennings underwent gender confirmation surgery, and her journey isn’t over yet.

In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s season 6 premiere of I Am Jazz, the 19-year-old meets with her surgeons, Dr. Marci Bowers and Dr. Jess Ting, to discuss what went wrong with the surgery as she prepares to undergo her third — and hopefully final — procedure.

Speaking to the cameras, Dr. Bowers admits Jazz “has had a very difficult surgical course.”

“She had a very incredible first surgery — it went seemingly very well, but there were problems,” she explains. “And that prompted a second surgery, which I was not a part of, unfortunately.”

“Taking Jazz on as a patient for surgery, we knew it was going to be a one-of-a-kind surgery,” Dr. Ting adds. “We don’t have the experience of having said we’ve done 50 of these. I was just not expecting her to have a complication as severe as what she did have.

Jazz underwent the surgery in June 2018, when she was 17. That October, she revealed she had suffered a complication and needed a second procedure.”

Read the whole article here.

You want to know why these surgeries are so difficult and complicated?

Because a fake vagina is actually the man’s gouged-out penis that’s stuffed inside a surgically-contrived cavity or wound in the man’s pelvis. After the surgery, the fake vagina has to be dilated with a dildo, or it would seal up, because the so-called “vagina” is actually a wound.

MASSIVE anti-Trump rally in D.C.!

Yesterday, @MrJones_tm tweeted this pic of a MASSIVE rally before the Capitol building (Congress) in Washington, DC, demanding that President Trump and Vice President Pence be removed.

Wow!

I’m shaking in my boots at the MASSIVE turnout!

In contrast, this was the turnout at the Second Amendment gun-rights rally at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, on Monday:

Curiously, the anti-Trump protestors seemed to be wearing masks.

Here are some hilarious tweets in response:

HUGE turnout!! I don’t know if I can sleep tonight….

wow, I can’t count them all.

Building momentum towards 2020 #BlueWave.

Adam Schiff’s staff taking a lunch break?

Boy that is as big as the Biden rallies

Hope they had extra crowd control.

We get more ppl than that in taco truck lines here in TX! LOL!

I wonder if the D.C. Metro had to run extra trains for this

It obviously wasn’t funded by Soros.

I’m surprised msm isnt saying over 1 million in attendance

I wonder if they can get a tight enough shot to make it look like a large crowd.

And they’ll still manage to leave more trash behind than the #2A patriots in VA did.

Illinois registered a possible 545 noncitizen voters

I’ll bet you that number is a LOT higher than reported.

I wonder if the AP (who is the original author of this article) will follow up and report any more facts other than those provided in this THREE paragraph article. Yeah, don’t hold your breath.

From MyFoxChicago: An error in Illinois’ new automatic voter registration system led to a possible 545 non-U.S. citizens being registered to vote, 16 of whom cast ballots, state officials publicly acknowledged this week.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White’s office, which oversees driver’s licenses, said the data of 574 people who self-identified as non-citizens was erroneously forwarded to elections officials to be registered to vote. Election officials confirmed Tuesday that 545 of them were ultimately registered.

“It was a computer error,” White spokesman Dave Druker said Tuesday. “We moved to correct it and contacted people involved.”

Tulsi Gabbard sues Hillary Clinton for $50 million for ‘Russian spy’ defamation

Finally, someone is holding Hillary Clinton accountable.

This morning, in the U.S. district court in Manhattan, 2020 presidential candidate Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), 38, filed a $50 million defamation suit against Hillary Clinton for calling her a “Russian asset” or spy. The lawsuit demands a jury trial.

Note: An “asset” is a spy working in his or her own country and controlled by the enemy.

A press release from Tulsi’s 2020 campaign states:

On October 17, 2019, she [Hillary Clinton] publicly stated in an interview that “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary … [is a] favorite of the Russians… Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.” The press extensively republished and disseminated these statements, which were interpreted widely as Clinton asserting that Gabbard is a Russian asset.

Below are excerpts from the lawsuit, Tulsi Gabbard and Tulci Now, Inc. v. Hillary Rodham Cinton (Note: Tulci Now is the principal campaign committee for Tulci Gabbard):

Plaintiffs Tulsi Gabbard and Tulsi Now, Inc. (collectively, “Tulsi”) bring this lawsuit against Defendant Hillary Rodham Clinton (“Clinton”) for defamation. Tulsi Gabbard is running for President of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain. In October 2019—whether out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated—Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard. She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent. Tulsi has been harmed by Clinton’s lies—and American democracy has suffered as well. With this action, Tulsi seeks to hold Clinton, and the political elites who enable her, accountable for distorting the truth in the middle of a critical Presidential election….

[I]n February 2016, Tulsi believed the best Democratic presidential candidate for ourcountry was Senator Bernie Sanders. She also knew that Clinton had a stranglehold over the Democratic party and that crossing Clinton (who considered herself the “inevitable nominee”) could mean the end of her own political career….

Clinton—a cutthroat politician by any account—has never forgotten this perceived slight. And in October 2019, she sought retribution by lying, publicly and loudly, about Tulsi Gabbard. Specifically, in widely disseminated national comments, Clinton falsely stated that Tulsi—an Army National Guard officer and United States Congresswoman who has spent her entire adult life serving this country—is a “Russian asset.” Clinton’s false assertions were made in a deliberate attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign.

Clinton had no basis for making her false assertions about Tulsi—and indeed, there is no factual basis for Clinton’s conspiracy theory. Clinton’s peddling of this theory has harmed Tulsi, has harmed American voters, and has harmed American democracy. Tulsi brings this lawsuit to ensure that the truth prevails and to ensure this country’s political elites are held accountable for intentionally trying to distort the truth in the midst of a critical Presidential election….

On October 17, 2019, Clintonwas a guest on the podcast CampaignHQ With David Plouffe. In the course of a widely-distributed national interview, Clinton stated the following regarding “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary” who “[they] are grooming . . . to be the third-party candidate”1:

“She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And, that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset….”

The next day, October 18, Clinton doubled down on the Defamatory Statements. A CNN reporter asked Clinton’s official spokesman, Nick Merrill, whether the Defamatory Statements were about Tulsi. Clinton’s spokesman responded: “If the nesting doll fits.” He continued:“This is not some outlandish claim. This is reality.”

Clinton’sreference to “the nesting doll” is a reference to the universally known Russian nesting dolls (Matryoshkadolls)….

Scientifically conducted opinion surveys have shown that Clinton’s false, malicious statements about Tulsi were accepted as true by millions of Americans, including large numbers of voters in battleground Presidential primary states.

In short, Clinton got exactly what she wanted by lying about Tulsi—she harmed her political and personal rival’s reputation and ongoing Presidential campaign, and started a damaging whisper campaign based on baseless, but vicious, untruths.

Despite calls from Tulsi and other public figures to correct the record, Clinton did not retract the Defamatory Statements. Nor did she apologize for the Defamatory Statements.

Before bringing this lawsuit, Tulsi wrote to Clinton and advised her of the complete and total falsity of the Defamatory Statements. Tulsi also asked Clinton to retract the Defamatory Statements.

Clinton refused to retract the Defamatory Statements and instead stood by them. She continues to stand by them. She refuses to apologize. And Tulsi continues to be greatly injured….

Clinton knew that the Defamatory Statements were false, and she published them knowing they were false. Clinton also intended the Defamatory Statements to be defamatory and endorsed their defamatory nature. At the very least, Clinton acted in reckless disregard of the truth or falsity of the Defamatory Statements when she published them….

The Defamatory Statements have injured Tulsi’s reputation. As a direct and proximate result of Clinton’s intentional and malicious misconduct, Tulsi has suffered anguish and damage to her reputation, with direct and substantial injury to her positions as United States Congresswoman; Presidential candidate; and officer in the Army National Guard. These substantial injuries are continuing in nature and will continue to be suffered in the future, unless and until they are remediated by this Court.

Millions of Americans heard (or read about) Clinton’s Defamatory Statements. Scientifically conducted opinion surveys have shown that Clinton’s false, malicious statements about Tulsi, including that Tulsi is a “Russian asset” and “the favorite of the Russians,” were accepted as true by millions of Americans, including large numbers of voters in battleground Presidential primary states.

The Defamatory Statements have caused Tulsi to lose potential donors and potential voters who heard the Defamatory Statements. Tulsi has suffered significant actual damages, personally and professionally, that are estimated to exceed $50 million—and continue to this day….

In addition to actual damages, Tulsi is entitled to appropriate special and punitive damages in view of Clinton’s malicious and unrepentant conduct. The amount of these damages will be proven at trial, but in no event should they be less than the amount of Tulsi’s actual damages.

Tulsi demands judgment against Clinton as follows: i. An award of compensatory, special and punitive damages in appropriate amounts to be established at trial; ii. Injunctive relief prohibiting the publication or republication of the Defamatory Statements; iii. An award of Tulsi’s costs associated with this action; and iv. Such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.

Tulsi demands a trial by jury on all issues so triable.

You go, Congresswoman Gabbard!

Taylor Swift “terrified” of becoming like the Dixie Chicks

From Yahoo: Taylor Swift’s reputation has been a topic of conversation since her 2017 album titled just that. But the massively famous singer-songwriter had only started altering her influence in the fall of 2018 when she spoke out about her political beliefs for the first time, despite fearing that it would tarnish her career.

The 30-year-old spoke to Variety about her decision to publicly endorse Democrat Phil Bredesen in Tennessee’s Senate race during the 2018 midterm election, plunging her into the political conversation and leaving her vulnerable to a divisive fan base. And although there were various outcomes considered before Swift posted to social media, the one that made her most fearful was the example set by the Dixie Chicks.

“I saw how one comment ended such a powerful reign, and it terrified me,” Swift told the magazine about Natalie Maines’s 2003 comments against then-President George W. Bush —which forced the top-selling female group into exile.

“These days, with social media, people can be so mad about something one day and then forget what they were mad about a couple weeks later. That’s fake outrage. But what happened to the Dixie Chicks was real outrage. I registered it — that you’re always one comment away from being done being able to make music.

Why a Red Flag Law is dangerous: democrat language and rhetoric

On Monday gun rights activists gathered in Richmond, Virginia to make their case against the gun-control demorats in that state.

The rally was peaceful and not one fight broke out – very much the exact opposite of Antifa gatherings. Heck, attendees at the rally even cleaned up after themselves!

But that hasn’t stopped the media and demorat gun grabbers from portraying the attendees as dangerous, racists white nationalists. See the following examples:

Rep. Don Beyer (demorat): “Annual gun lobby day protest in Richmond drew large numbers of white nationalists, militias, and racist conspiracy theorists this year. Neo-Nazis tried to use this rally to launch violent attacks. Trump’s symbolism and memories of Charlottesville are vivid in many minds today.”

HuffPo: “The Colossal Gun Rally In Richmond Was Co-Opted By Extremists

Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam: “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”

Reported by Turning Point USA: “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says today’s Peaceful Pro-2A #VirginiaRally sent an “explicit and implicit message” of “don’t you dare enact your policies, if you do we will use these guns against you.”

Media Hogg: “How many of these people do you think would support the Black Panthers right to carry? Or armed resistance to the white militias that stole the North American continent? Answer: none because they only want guns to enforce white supremacy.”

David Rothschild (a Twitter blue-checked verified economist): “The White Men (and they are all White Men, because non-White Men would not be safe in this crowd) are explicitly TERRORIZING US to demonstrate to lawmakers they will cause more TERROR if they pass gun safety measures the voters wanted and voted them into office to pass.”

Another one of David’s tweets: “The FACT that there were a handful of minorities at the rally designed to terrorize the Virginia lawmakers AND no one got shot, does invalidate the stated goals of the rally to terrorize Virginia lawmakers. Nor does it make the movement inclusive.”

As you can see, the narrative is that there were very, very dangerous people and gun owners at this rally.

Why is their hyperbole so dangerous? Because of this: “Virginia Senate advances ‘red flag’ gun law, despite rally”

From the AP article:

“The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.”

I’d be curious to see the red flag law text that defines how a petitioner can deem someone is “dangerous” to others. Because based upon the inflammatory language demorats use, they will always deem us gun owners as a “danger.”
