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.

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 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.”

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.

About to face the cancel culture? Producer defends using male voices for female animated characters

If you are not “woke” enough in Hollyweird, you will face the wrath of progressives.

Loren Bouchard (above) is an American animator, writer, producer, and television director who has created several animated TV shows.

THR reports that in Apple’s forthcoming Central Park animated comedies, Bouchard told the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that he knows it isn’t great practice to have men voicing female characters but sometimes it can’t be helped.

Male actors Daveed Diggs and Stanley Tucci both voice female characters, while Kristen Bell lends her voice to the central family’s mixed-race daughter. And on Fox’s mega-hit Bob’s Burgers (created by Bouchard), John Roberts lends his voice to the character of Linda.

Bouchard’s justification for this crime: “Animation just makes you want to take this voice and have it come out if this face. Hopefully there’s something about it that makes sense.”

More from THR:

“Still, Bouchard — who along with exec producer Josh Gad and star Bell raved about the influence musical theater had on them during their formative years — is aware that the practice of handing roles for women to men isn’t particularly great at a time when the industry is making an effort to do better with inclusion on-screen and off.

“Here I am, yet again, taking away two roles for women, and it’s something that I have on my mind all the time to try and keep balancing things,” he said, acknowledging Bell voicing a mixed-race character. “Kristen needed to voice Molly, we couldn’t not make her Molly and then we couldn’t make Molly white and couldn’t make Kristen mixed-race. Then you arrive there and keep doing it as best you can to turn around and give someone an opportunity who wasn’t getting it. A commitment to diversity isn’t some odd job, it’s a commitment to making it better.

Progressives have earned a perfect “10” in the mental gymnastics they go through to justify their double standards.

‘Curviest model ever’ posts ‘fearless’ swimsuit photo: ‘Cellulite is cool too’

More of this “body positivity” and “inclusivity” crap. Ugh.

And if you dare have a different opinion, be warned you WILL BE shamed for stating the truth about the side effects of obesity.

Cool cellulite on plus-size model Hunter McGrady

From Yahoo: Supermodel Hunter McGrady is making 2020 “fearless” with a swimsuit post that amplifies her curves — and her cellulite.

The 26-year-old beauty, once named Sports Illustrated’s ‘Curviest Model Ever,’ was true to form on Instagram Thursday, posing on the beach in a black one-piece swimsuit. “Cus cellulite is cool too bodies are meant to change with you, move a little different and look different,” she wrote. “We’re so predisposed as humans to want to go with the grain and change ourselves to fit inside a pristine box in order to be accepted. Real change happens outside of our comfort zones. So many of us let Fear hold us back from doing things we love or loving ourselves because we think we won’t measure up.”

Defining fear as “False Evidence Appearing Real,” the model added, “We get into our heads and allow fear to control us and tell us what we lack and what we aren’t. Let’s make sure to make this year a fearless one.”

McGrady has started 2020 with optimism and confidence. Anticipating her fourth appearance in the upcoming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, shot in Bali, she recently posted a throwback outtake from last year’s Costa Rican shoot.

And in a November preview, McGrady posed in a black-and-gold bikini. “Can’t wait for you guys to see this issue,” she wrote on Instagram. “Keep on rocking that body of yours and remember You are ENOUGH as you are RIGHT. NOW.”

The model, who is still a newlywed — in June, she married Brian Keyes, whom she reportedly met on Snapchat after dating for less than two years — also graced the fall issue of The Knot. McGrady told Good Morning America that owning the cover as a plus-size woman was secondary to how her image was presented.

My whole platform is inclusivity and there’s nothing on [the cover] that’s like, ‘This is a plus-size model.’ It’s a model on the cover of a magazine,” McGrady told GMA in July. “My whole message is promoting that and getting that narrative out there that we should all feel seen and all feel beautiful regardless of our size.”

Greta Thunberg the puppet: Her 51 y.o. dad and UN climate change activist write her Facebook page

16-year-old Greta Thunberg became an instant darling of the Left when she gave a doomsday speech at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in New York City, in which she berated the assembled world leaders, including President Trump, of ignoring “climate change” and proclaimed an imminent end of the world of “mass extinction” and the collapse of “entire ecosystems”.

Time magazine actually selected Thunberg to be Person of the Year — the youngest person ever to be so named. In November 2019, Thunberg’s adoring fans plastered her face onto a gigantic 60′ x 30′ mural in downtown San Francisco.

But there is every evidence that this 16-year-old girl is a puppet of shadowy adults behind the scenes. (See my post of Dec. 18, 2019: “Greta Thunberg: Puppet of the Year”)

Here is more evidence.

Greta Thunberg has a Facebook page that appears to be her page to which presumably she alone posts. Indeed, Facebook‘s “page transparency” shows her as the confirmed owner.

However, a recent software glitsch revealed that her father and a United Nations activist actually post on and run her Facebook page.

Wired‘s Lily Hay Newman explains the glitsch, January 10, 2020:

Facebook Pages give public figures, businesses, and other entities a presence on Facebook that isn’t tied to an individual profile. The accounts behind those pages are anonymous unless a Page owner opts to make the admins public. You can’t see, for example, the names of the people who post to Facebook on WIRED’s behalf. But a bug that was live from Thursday evening until Friday morning allowed anyone to easily reveal the accounts running a Page, essentially doxing anyone who posted to one…. All it took to exploit the bug was opening a target page and checking the edit history of a post. Facebook mistakenly displayed the account or accounts that made edits to each post, rather than just the edits themselves.

During the Facebook glitsch, enterprising netizens got to work and discovered that two adult men post as 16-year-old Greta on her Facebook page: Svante Thunberg and Adarsh Prathap (ZeroHedge).

(1) Greta’s dad, Svante Thunberg, a 51-year-old Swedish actor:

(2) Adarsh Prathap, a United Nations climate activist in India:

Adarsh Prathap’s LinkedIn page says he was a “Youth Reporter” at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)’s 2017 UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany. Prathap currently is the youth coordinator for Youth Engaged in Wetlands, which calls itself “an international youth team committed to the conservation, protection, and wise-use of wetlands”.

After her adult male puppeteers were uncovered, Greta Thunberg continues to insist that she writes all the content posted by her father and Prathap. 😎

Celebrity trainer blasted for stating the truth about obesity

Last December, celebrity personal trainer Jillian Michaels went against the “body positivity” crowd by stating the truth. She believes that this movement has helped to improve people’s lives yet she’s concerned about the health implications.

From People Magazine: I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people. Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone [and respect that] everyone comes in all different shapes and sizes. That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable.

“Obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized. But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it.”

“I think the world has shifted to a place where that format and messaging is considered fat shaming. But it isn’t, and it’s not meant to be. Now we’ve gone too far in the opposite direction.”

Last week she specifically called out the glamorizing of obese singer, Rizzo who has been heralded for her body positivity. See examples here and here.

Jillian recently said in an interview with BuzzFeed: Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”

Liberals blasted Jillian for daring to speak the truth about the consequences of obesity. As reported by Page Six:

“The only reason we know who Jillian Michaels is, is because of a reality show where people used incredibly unhealthy practices in order to lose as much weight as possible,” wrote one tweeter, “not to become the most physically fit or to get the healthiest vitals – in a dangerously short time.”

Another follower called her statements “incredibly gross” while another made note of the “Good as Hell” singer’s energetic stage show.

“Lizzo spends hours every night singing and playing the flute during intensive dance cardio. Just admit that the only self worth you’ve found for yourself is in your thinness, Jillian, then go to therapy & do the work to love yourself.”

Jillian then posted to Instagram: “As I’ve stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity – heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few. I would never with these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies.”

How pathetic that stating the obvious truths about obesity is considered “incredibly gross.”

Virginia Democrat bill will eliminate suburban single-family housing zones

This is Democrat socialism-retribution and Agenda 21 all rolled into one tyrannical bill.

Elections have consequences.

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, the victors have been on a tear to impose gun control. See “Virginians form sanctuaries and militias against governor & state legislature gun grab“.

To the growing list of Virginia Democrats’ tyranny and malice should be added a bill that will change the character of quiet suburbs by overriding local zoning officials to legalize multi-family housing in every neighborhood currently zoned for single-family homes. 

On January 8, 2020, Virginia Assemblyman Ibraheem S. Samirah introduced House Bill no. 152 (HB-152), “A BILL to amend the Code of Virginia by adding a  section numbered 15.2-2292.2, relating to zoning two-family development on single-family lots,” which will change the suburbs by overriding local zoning officials to permit multi-family housing in all neighborhoods now zoned for single-family housing.

Born in Chicago, IL, of Palestinian parents, Ibraheem Samirah is a Democrat who was elected in February 2019 in a special election to the Virginia House of Delegates for the 86th district, which includes parts of Fairfax and Loudoun Counties in suburban Washington, D.C. Samirah was re-elected to a full-term in November 2019.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the U.S. government had banned from the U.S. for a decade Samirah’s father, Jordanian refugee Sabri Samirah, in part because of his membership in the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group. (Daily Caller)

Below is the available text of HB 152:

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

That the Code of Virginia is amended by adding a section numbered 15.2-2292.2 as follows:

12§ 15.2-2292.2. Two-family development allowed on lots zoned for single-family use.

All localities adopting a zoning ordinance under the provisions of this article shall allow development or redevelopment of middle housing residential units upon each lot zoned for single-family residential use. For purposes of this section, “middle housing” means a two-family residential unit, including duplexes, townhouses, cottages, and any similar structure by whatever name it may be known. Such structures shall not require a special use permit or be subjected to any other local requirements beyond those imposed upon other authorized residential uses. Localities may regulate the siting, design, and environmental standards of middle housing residential units, including setback requirements, provided that the regulations do not, individually or cumulatively, discourage the development of all middle housing types permitted through unreasonable costs or delay. Nothing in this section shall prohibit local governments from permitting (i) single-family dwellings in areas zoned to allow for single-family dwellings, or (ii) middle housing in areas not required under this section.

What HB 152 doesn’t say is that its definition of “middle housing” as any two-family residential unit, includes public housingIn a tweet on December 22, 2019, Samirah telegraphed his intention to put public housing units in single-family housing zones:

Important Q [question] about new social/public housing programs: where are we going to put the units?

Under current zoning, new low-income housing is relegated to underinvested neighborhoods, concentrating poverty more.

Ending exclusionary zoning has to be part of broader housing reform.

Samirah’s purpose for HB 152 is two-pronged:

(1) Retribution against “most white and wealthy” Virginians who are not aligned with the Democratic Party:

Samirah told the Daily Caller, “Single-family housing zones would become two-zoned. Areas that would be impacted most would be the suburbs that have not done their part in helping out…. Those are the areas that the state is having significant trouble dealing with. They’re living in a bubble.”

(2) Socialism — racial and class equality:

In response to a question about whether people who bought homes in spacious suburbs have valid, non-discriminaton reasons for preferring to live that way — including a love for nature and desire to preserve woods and streams — Samirah wrote on Facebook: “Caring about nature is very important, but the more dense a neighborhood is, the more energy efficient it is. Because middle housing is what’s most affordable for low-income people and people of color, banning that housing in well-off neighborhoods chalks up to modern-day redlining, locking folks out of areas with better access to schools, jobs, transit, and other services and amenities. I will certainly get pushback for this. Some will call it ‘state overreach.’ Some will express anxiety about neighborhood change. Some may even say that the supply issue doesn’t exist. But the research is clear: zoning is a barrier to more housing and integrated communities.”

Tim Hannigan, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, told the Daily Caller HB 152 “could completely change the character of suburban residential life, because of the urbanization that would develop. So much of the American dream is built upon this idea of finding a nice quiet place to raise your family, and that is under assault. This is a power-grab to take away the ability of local communities to establish their own zoning practices … literally trying to change the character of our communities.”

Other cities and states have passed bills similar to Virginia’s HB 152, including Oregon; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Austin, Texas; and Seattle, Washington.

Keep your kids far, far away from Lakers games: Obese singer Lizzo twerks in a thong at Staples Center

I’ve told you about the rapper/singer Lizzo before. She’s an obese woman who is promoted in fashion magazines in the name of “inclusivity.”

She admits to being fat yet loves that “insecurity.”

Of course she makes no mention of the health tolls and costs that go along with that “insecurity.”

Turns out not only is she fat, she has a FOUL mouth and loves showing off her fat butt in public.

The singer was recently at a Lakers game and gave the audience a full view of her insecurities.

Videos are NSFW.

Girl, no one at a basketball game with their child wants to see that. What a narcissist she is.

Portland, OR to require all new buildings, incl. private homes, provide ‘rest and welcome’ to homeless

More insanity from the city government of Portland, Oregon.

Lashay Wesley reports for KATU News that on Nov. 12, 2019, the City of Portland’s 11-member Planning and Sustainability Commission narrowly approved a controversial change to the design process language to say all property owners must “Provide opportunities to rest and be welcome” to homeless people.

The change was introduced by Commissioner Oriana Magnera (see her LinkedIn page here), who has a B.A. in Women’s Studies and is also the climate and energy policy coordinator of Verde, a local “environmental justice” non-profit. She said: “Just one of the realities of Portland right now is that we have a lot of folks who are unhoused who benefit from some of these spaces that provide weather protection.”

Some are rightly concerned that the change to the city of Portland’s design review process would lead to homeless people camping on private property. Questions were raised even by members of the Planning and Sustainability Commission:

  • Commission Chair and architect Katherine Schultz asked: “What does it mean to rest? Am I providing a place to sleep?”
  • Commissioner and attorney Jeff Bachrach said: “I’m concerned that this is going to become quite controversial. I think for us to put into design review some loaded words that suggest we want some design commissioners to think about people resting for hours, pitching tents, I think we’re just putting too great of a burden on design review.”

KATU News reached out to each member of the commission, but no one would agree to talk about the proposal on the record, including Magnera who had proposed the idea. Commission Chair Schultz provided this statement to KATU News:

The discussion around ‘Guideline 6: Provide opportunities to rest and be welcome’ was one of the most robust of the Planning and Sustainability Commission’s November 12 work session on the Design Overlay Zone Amendments (DOZA) project. Commissioners discussed how private development can provide places for people to feel welcome and safe, as well as allow space for people to rest, especially in light of our current housing shortage.

The Commission will talk about this further at our next work session and will provide suggested language to the Design Commission that helps clarify the intent of the word “rest.” The Design Commission is the recommending body to City Council for proposed new design guidelines.

The City design review program and guidelines that are the subject of DOZA affect the design of new buildings but do not control the use of properties.

The City of Portland also declined to comment, but provided this letter from the Planning and Sustainability Commission:

Understanding we are talking about private property here, we still want to ensure the openness and welcoming factors contribute to the development.

Specific to the phrasing of the guideline itself, we suggest making it even more clear that development should provide supportive space for people to feel welcome and safe and should allow space for people to rest, especially under our current housing shortage.

The definition of “rest” was quite involved. We think the background should address this more fully and clarify the intent of the word. The PSC will talk about this further at its [Dec. 17] work session and will provide suggested language to the Design Commission after our discussion.

According to BizPacReview, this is not yet a done deal as the motion must pass more committees before a final vote.
