Beware: Proposal to split California into 3 will create 3 liberal states!

A proposal to split California into three states will be on the ballot this November.

Backers of CAL 3, led by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper, collected and delivered 600,000 signatures to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla’s Office, surpassing the 365,000 required by law to qualify for the ballot.

The proposal is to split California into these three new states:

  1. Northern California
  2. California
  3. Southern California

Conservatives should vote “No” for this reason: Instead of giving Conservatives a voice in state government, CAL 3 will make things worse because the way the proposed state lines are drawn will create two, if not three, Democrat-dominant states.

As things are today, California’s one-party Democrat government is the result of the state’s pattern of population distribution, wherein heavily-populated “liberal” metropolitan cities on the coast determine the outcome of elections. Instead of creating a new state of those “liberal” coastal cities, CAL 3 distributes the “liberal” cities to each of the three new states, thereby ensuring that they will dominate election outcomes in the new states.

Here’s the map of the proposed CAL 3:

Note that:

  1. Northern California will contain these big cities:
    1. San Francisco: the 13th most populous city in the U.S., with a population of 884,363 in 2017.
    2. San Jose: the 10th most populous city in the U.S., with a population of 1,035,317 in 2017.
    3. Sacramento: the state capital; 35th largest city in the U.S., with a population of 501,334 in 2018.
  2. California will contain these big cities:
    1. Los Angeles: the 2nd largest city in the U.S. (after New York), with a population estimated at 3.98 million.
    2. Santa Barbara: with a population of 91,196 in 2014.
    3. Long Beach: the 39th largest city in the U.S., with a population of 462,257 in 2010.
  3. Southern California will contain these big cities:
    1. San Diego: the 8th largest city in the U.S., with a population of 1,419,516 in 2017.
    2. Anaheim: the 10th largest city in California, with a  population of 336,265 in 2010.

In the 2016 presidential election, California voted:

  • Hillary Clinton: 61.6%
  • Donald Trump: 32.8%

Here’s a map of how California voted in the 2016 presidential election

Now let’s compare California’s 2016 election results map with a map of CAL 3:

To conclude, the proposed CAL 3 will only split “liberal” California into three “liberal” states. Each of the three states will get to send two senators each to the U.S. Senate, as well as representatives to the House of Representatives. Since each new California state will be dominated by “liberal” heavily-populated cities, that means we’ll end up having even more Democrats elected to both houses of Congress.

Vote “No” on CAL 3 !!!

Illinois demorats propose national firearms licensing system

shall not be infringed

Press release from representative Bobby Rush, dated June 6:

“Today, U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) introduced the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2018.  This legislation would prohibit unlicensed gun-ownership and transferring or receiving firearms without a valid firearms license, as well as direct the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.

Rush first introduced this legislation in 2007 and subsequently reintroduced it in 2009 and 2013.  This bill is named after Blair Holt, a Chicago Julian High School honor student who was gunned down protecting his friend when a gunman opened fire while they were riding home from school on a crowded public transit bus.

“Americans are demanding that Congress take real action to prevent gun violence and we must address this issue head on and do our part to prevent the senseless mass killings and shooting deaths in cities across this nation,” said Rush.  “I am grateful that Senator Duckworth has joined in this tireless effort to provide commonsense solutions to the epidemic of gun violence plaguing America.  We cannot continue to stand by and abdicate our responsibilities to the very communities that depend on us,” said Rush.

“People are dying and Congress has not only the power, but also the duty to act by passing common-sense solutions like this one that would help prevent firearms from falling into the wrong hands,” Duckworth said.  “We owe it to the countless and growing number of firearm violence victims to take action.  I don’t want my daughters to have to grow up in a country that won’t protect them from firearm violence, which is why I’m proud to join Congressman Rush in this effort and we will keep pushing until all of America’s children are safe.”

Modeled in part after the Illinois Firearm Owners Identification Card (FOID) statute, the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2018 would:

  • Protect the public against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of qualifying firearms to unlicensed individuals.
  • Ensure that owners of qualifying firearms are knowledgeable in the safe use, handling, and storage of those firearms.
  • Restrict the availability of qualifying firearms to criminals, children, and other persons prohibited by federal law from receiving firearms.
  • Require universal background checks for all purchases or transfers of firearms.
  • Facilitate the tracing of qualifying firearms used in crime by federal and state law enforcement agencies.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 315 people are shot with a gun every day in the United States.  Of those injured, 93 people die.

We must use all available resources to immediately tackle this gun violence epidemic and this legislation aims to do just that.  The cost of gun violence is too high, with human life and suffering that is immeasurable — that is more than enough reason for us to enact commonsense reforms like those proposed in this bill,” said Rush.”

Cops dig up another body in Long Island related to MS-13 gang violence

Democrat Party logo MS-13

From Daily Mail: A cadaver dog has located a murder victim linked to the brutal MS-13 gang – believed to be a missing teenage boy – buried in a nature reserve.

After the body of a male was recovered from the Roosevelt nature reserve on Wednesday (May 30), officials visited family members to obtain DNA samples to establish his identity.

One of those visited, a woman, speaking anonymously to NBC New York, said the police told her they believe it is the body of her younger brother, Josue Amaya, a 17-year-old Roosevelt high student, who vanished in 2016. ‘I’m completely destroyed. I have an enormous heartache. And all I want is justice,’ she said.

The discovery adds to MS-13’s growing body count at Long Island, with at least 25 killings now attributed to the El Salvadorian gang in the vicinity over the last two years.

It comes days after Donald Trump called on the Congress to ‘finally close deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13 to break into our country’.

Homeland Security Investigations agents and Nassau County Police swooped on the reserve in Roosevelt, after receiving a tip-off.

At a news conference, Nassar police said a suspect arrested in connection to a different case, the murder of another Long Island teenager last year, told them where to search for the Roosevelt student. ‘They told me they spoke with him, and this is where they buried my brother,’ his distraught sister told the NBC.

After the cadaver dog indicated the presence of a body, authorities dug at the reserve until they found the remains, believed to be male. But, police are not able to identify the remains until they receive DNA results.

However a police official said: ‘It is no doubt an MS-13 murder.’

It comes after a suspected MS-13 member was arrested in the death of 15-year-old Angel Soler, who was found dead in a reserve in the town in October.

Nassau Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said the arrest of a suspected MS-13 member in relation to the death of 15-year-old Angel Soler, who was found dead in a reserve in the town last October, had led to the gravesite in Roosevelt on Wednesday. The New York teenager had been hacked to death with a machete.

Madeline Singas, Nassau’s District Attorney, said: ‘These are brutal acts. We cannot reveal any other details of this investigation, but suffice it to say it is ongoing, and we will continue to leave no stone unturned as we try to figure out who is responsible for these crimes.’

Police have stepped up patrols in the area, to help residents feel more secure, and have told Roosevelt residents there is no cause for concern.

“Reparations Happy Hour” invites white people only to pay for drinks

reparations happy hour cameron whitten twitter photo

Celebrate getting whitey to pay for your drinks!/Cameron Whitten Twitter photo

How inclusive…

From Fox News: On Monday night, a bar in Portland, Oregon hosted people of color and gave them $10 as they arrived — a symbolic gift funded primarily by white people who were asked not to attend the “Reparations Happy Hour.”

A local activist group, Brown Hope, wanted the event to be a space for people of color in a mostly white city to meet, organize, discuss public policy and potentially plan various actions.

The notion of full-scale reparations — sought by some as compensation for the horrors of slavery, Jim Crow and the large wealth gap between white and black U.S. households — was supported by 58 percent of black people and 46 percent of Hispanic people in a 2016 poll.

However, 68 percent of white Americans do not support reparations; when the topic was brought up during the 2016 presidential campaign, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said it was “divisive” and unlikely to get through Congress.

The economist Robert Browne once estimated a fair value for reparations of $1.4 trillion to $4.7 trillion and wrote that reparations should ”restore the black community to the economic position it would have had if it had not been subjected to slavery and discrimination.”

Eric J. Miller, a professor at Loyola Law School, said the case for reparations involves a reckoning with the country’s history.  “Part of our history is our grandparents participating in these acts of terrible violence [against black people],” he told HuffPost. “But people don’t want to acknowledge the horror of what they engaged in.”

“The cognitive dissonance of learning that your property is got and preserved on the back of the misery of others is not an incredibly nice thing to live with. So people would rather discount it,” Miller said.

Cameron Whitten, the 27-year-old activist who organized the event, said that attendees felt seen and valued by the Portland event — but noted there are much larger goals.

“We’re creating a platform to make sure our leadership is being seen and honored,” Whitten told Blavity. “This isn’t just, ‘We’re here to socialize.’ We’re here to do the work. In a place like Portland, where our community is so fractured … our first step is to bring us back together, and then from there organize and mobilize to create policies to create justice in our communities.

There was enough interest in the idea, which was funded by about 100 people who were mostly white, to hold other happy hours, which will be called “Reparations Power Hour” to accommodate those who don’t drink.

Whitten anticipated some of the criticism he’s faced, telling the New York Times the event is not meant to diminish the seriousness of reparations.

In 2014, the writer Ta-Nehisi Coates made the case for reparations in the Atlantic. H.R. 40, which was introduced in Congress in January 2017, would study various reparations proposals.

Trump signs order making it easier to fire federal employees

maga

Works for me.

From NBC News: President Donald Trump began fulfilling a promise to facilitate the firing of federal workers Friday, quietly signing a set of executive orders to rewrite the government’s employment rules.

The three actions, two of which crack down on federal employee unions, are designed to “make it easier for agencies to remove poor-performing employees and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used,” Andrew Bremberg, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, told reporters.

In his State of the Union address in January, Trump asked Congress to give Cabinet secretaries more power over the employees of their agencies. Even though, as president, he has tended to avoid firing top officials face to face — and these moves will certainly affect less high-profile cases — the president who made a name for himself by saying “you’re fired” contestants on his TV show “The Apprentice” has often spoken publicly about his desire to fire, and exultation in firing, well-known employees who aren’t doing his bidding (nice unbiased reporting there, NBC).

For example, when FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was removed from his post earlier this year, Trump called it “a great day for democracy.” He fired former FBI Director James Comey and has mused about getting rid of many of his Cabinet secretaries, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The first of the three orders directs the Office of Personnel Management to revise existing rules so that the time an employee under review has to show improved performance is reduced from a 60-to-120 day window to 30 days.

The second requires federal agencies to renegotiate union contracts with an eye toward cost savings, according to senior administration officials.

And the third is designed to reduce the amount of time federal workers can spend on union business, the officials said on a conference call with reporters. It aims to limit the non-agency work of federal employees to 25 percent of their time and prevent taxpayers from subsidizing appeals lodged by unionized workers and activities the administration said amount to “lobbying” by federal workers who are in unions.

“Federal employees will no longer be allowed to lobby Congress while in a paid-duty status, unless they’re doing it as a part of, say, legislative affairs or their official duties,” a senior administration official said.

It is already illegal for White House and agency employees to use appropriated funds to lobby Congress, even if they work in legislative affairs offices.

But a White House official said that the Federal Labor Relations Authority has ruled that “lobbying on union time” is not prohibited by anti-lobbying laws. In effect, the new rule could make it harder for federal workers to discuss policy and employment issues with lawmakers and their staffs.

Lee Saunders, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, slammed the executive orders.

“It is shameful that this administration continues to undermine the important services and vital contributions our federal workers provide to the American people every day,” Saunders, whose union represents some federal employees, said in a statement. “These workers protect our national security and ensure that our communities run smoothly. For their service they deserve respect, not a constant barrage of attacks on their freedom to join together in strong unions and speak up together to deliver better services.”

Obama’s deep state DOJ and FBI willfully obstructs Congress in the pursuit of justice

By Kelleigh Nelson, reblogged from News With Views:

President Trump was mocked for claims he made that the Obama regime and their weaponized intelligence agency assets had wire-tapped his communications and Trump

Tower. Evidence has since proven that his claim was, in fact, a true statement.  The slow-walking of documents and general obstruction by the agencies involved, the DOJ under AG Jeff Sessions, and the FBI under Wray, has left America largely uninformed as to the level of corruption and anti-American activities of the illegitimate Obama regime.

On Laura Ingraham’s May 15th show, former US attorney Joe diGenova stated that there was absolutely no legitimate basis for a counterintelligence investigation, let alone a criminal investigation.  He explained that John Brennan was at the head of the group of people who were going to create a counterintelligence investigation against Trump by creating false information they would feed through Carter Page and patsy George Papadopoulos so that it would be picked up, reported back to Washington and provide the basis for a fake counterintelligence investigation and it was all Brennan’s doing.

Why is it then that Robert Mueller has never requested an interview with Brennan who started the entire spying vendetta on candidate Trump in April of 2016?  Because there was no dirt on Trump to dig up!

Former Director of the CIA John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper both committed perjury when testifying to Congress, yet neither have been charged.  And both were part of Obama’s counterintelligence investigation of Donald Trump.

FBI’s Slow and Redacted Incriminating Documents

As I mentioned in my last article, prior to the Obama administration, the DOJ and FBI have always responded promptly to any requests by Congress for documents and back then a congressional committee didn’t need a subpoena to get information from the FBI.

Now however, the entire DOJ is using every obstacle and impediment to keep Congress from learning the truth, and we know why…to cover their own backsides.  Congress has to subpoena nearly everything they want, it takes months for the FBI to release, and when they get it, the documents are heavily redacted.  They tell Congress their lack of transparency is necessary for the protection of national security, vital intelligence, and investigative operations. What absolute horse hockey and Devin Nunes and others know it because they’ve seen the unredacted forms.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein’s reaction to reports of possible impeachment for failing to respond to congressional subpoenas was to proclaim that, “the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted.”  What?  The DOJ/FBI is obligated to give Congress everything they request.  Who the hell allows your existence and funds you Rosenstein?  What hubris!

Rosenstein, as acting AG after Sessions’ foolish recusal, must believe he is above the law.  He has authorized unlimited investigations of the administration he supposedly serves.  Mark Penn writing for The Hill states, “The Constitution gave the elected representatives of the people the right to decide whether to impeach public officials for failure to comply with completely lawful subpoenas and appropriate oversight. They even provide Congress with immunity included in the Constitution to prevent threats from people like Rosenstein.”

There was no criminal premise to justify any investigation of any Trump campaign official, but the Obama administration used the DOJ/FBI for counterintelligence against the opposition hoping they would find something criminal, which they have not.  Link

Sessions is failing the President and American people by not telling Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray to release the requested documents immediately and dethroning and ejecting Rosenstein and Mueller.  Too many innocent lives have been financially ruined.  We want to know who the planted FBI spy was in the Trump campaign!  Get out from under that rock AG Sessions and do your job!

Persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael T Flynn

Guess who is weighing in on General Flynn!?  None other than former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik.  He believes Mueller pressed the General to take a plea deal so the Special Counsel would not be caught in their lies and corruptions.  Remember too that this is a process crime plea by Flynn made in order to stop the financial drain of legal costs and to protect his son from prosecution by Mueller and gang, a prosecution created out of thin air. Michael Flynn never lied to anyone, including VP Pence.

But now the lies of the Special Counsel are coming out into the open!  Mike Flynn was set up because of the deep animosity of the intelligence community especially Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  Don’t forget that former CIA Director James Woolsey also tried to undercut and destroy General Flynn.

Michael Flynn is hated because he knows all about the intelligence community and the 17-year decay that has seeped into it since Mueller became the FBI Director in 2001.

Grassley Demands all DOJ/FBI Info on Flynn

Sara Carter reports that Chuck Grassley’s May 11th letter to Director Wray and Deputy AG Rosenstein demands they produce the transcript of Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the FBI’s 302’s by May 25th.  Why give them time, demand them now!  The 302s are the FBI agents’ reports of interviews which are written up after the fact.

Grassley, chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee is demanding that the DOJ and FBI adhere to requests made over a year ago and turn over all documentation associated with the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, despite evidence and admissions from senior FBI officials that he did not lie. Moreover, the letter reveals for the first time the name of the second FBI agent who interviewed Flynn at the White House regarding his conversation with the former Russian Ambassador.

It was former acting AG Sally Yates who marched Strzok and Pientka over to Mike Flynn’s office for an “impromptu interview.” She was fired by President Trump after she refused to defend his executive order to restrict immigration and refugees from several high-risk countries in the Middle East.

Grassley requested that the second FBI Agent Joe Pientka, who was with Peter Strzok when he interviewed Mike Flynn on Jan. 24, 2017, be made available “for a transcribed interview with Committee staff no later than one week following the production of the requested documents.”  Investigative reporter Sara Carter says according to numerous law enforcement sources, neither Strzok or Pientka believed Flynn was lying during their interview with him, as reported.  Link

Those FD-302s

Agent Joe Pientka also filed an FD 302 form following the interview with General Flynn. Grassley is demanding to see both his and Strzok’s FD 302 forms from that interview.  It is well established that former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe loathed the General and was a willing participant in the FBI set-up.

The most recent text messages between FBI attorney Lisa Page and Agent Peter Strzok are telling.  There is evidence of the “widely held belief” that Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told FBI agents Strzok and Pientka to shape their FBI reports of the interview (FD-302’s) to assist a “Flynn lied” narrative.

This is important as it will mean the FBI had to issue two 302 reports, one from each questioning agent, then compare them to filed 302s of submitted evidentiary. They might have been redrafted in which case it is criminal, or if they agree Flynn didn’t lie, it was exculpatory and not revealed, which is also criminal.

When the FBI called for a meeting in Flynn’s office, the General thought it was routine business, and he wasn’t prepared or aware of the impending interview.  It was a conspiracy to entrap the General.

Inspector General’s Report

Attorney Joe diGenova on the Deep State’s admission of spying on Trump said, “This is the most unbelievable scandal in history.  James Comey was the dirty cop in charge of a bunch of dirty cops. And what you have here is, this was a criminal plot by senior people: John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, senior DOJ officials to suborn the presidency of the United States through the use of false evidence. The false FISA warrants were obtained through lying to the FISA Court.”

The Inspector General’s report is coming out any day now and there is indication that it may rule that FBI and Justice Department officials broke the law in their handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Link  Watergate was just a break-in robbery to obtain information. What Obama and his administration did was use devious evil means involving government agencies and resources to spy on a political opponent before, during, and after the election.  Then when they lost the election, they attempted a coup to remove Trump from office by any means necessary. This is treason.

The Gordian Knot and Bold Action

Harrison Ford graduated from Maine Township High School East in Park Ridge, Illinois in 1960.  I graduated from that same school in 1964, and I knew Harry’s little brother Terry who was a year ahead of me.  So many famous names came from our high school, some good, some bad, and both Ford’s, like 1965 classmate Hillary Clinton, are leftists.  Harrison Ford’s movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, had a scene that was not in the script, but was impromptu by Ford and left in because it was so perfect.  Indiana Jones, played by Ford, meets up with an Arab knife wielder who is out to kill him, and rather than duel to death, Indiana Jones simply pulls his firearm and shoots the guy.

End of problem.

The Gordian knot was given its name applicable to a proverbial term for a problem solvable only by bold action. In 333 BC, Alexander the Great, on his march through Anatolia, reached Gordium, the capital of Phrygia. There he was shown the chariot of the ancient founder of the city, Gordius, with its yoke lashed to the pole by means of an intricate knot with its end hidden. According to tradition, this knot was to be untied only by the future conqueror of Asia. In the popular account, Alexander sliced through the knot with his sword. The phrase “cutting the Gordian knot” has thus come to denote a bold solution to a complicated problem.

End of problem.

Conclusion

President Trump is responsible for his administration’s actions. The buck stops with him.  The president has the authority and the duty to ensure that his subordinates honor lawful disclosure requests from Congress. Bold action is required.

The DOJ reports to the President, and our President has the sole power to fire anyone within his administration.  He also has the power to declassify every piece of information being withheld from Congress as it relates to this scandalous counterintelligence investigation.

Furthermore, I am of the opinion that President Trump needs to fire Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller.

End of problem.

What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? Gibberish and confusion during her weekly press conference

After watching this video, one has to wonder if Nancy (age 78) is one of the 16 members of Congress having Alzheimer’s medications delivered?

She sure does display some of the early indications of senile dementia: language problems, rambling speech,  and trouble coming up with the right words and using the wrong ones.

Also see Dr. Eowyn’s post from July 2017, “Does Nancy Pelosi have senile dementia?

There are several other videos in that post (also from The American Mirror) which clearly indicate that not all is right in Nancy’s head and with her ability to verbally communicate.
