Kamala Harris teams up with Maxine Waters on $13B plan to “end” homelessness

The street of LA…

Not ONE mention of addressing the REAL culprits of homelessness: Drugs and mental health issues. Yet if the actual root of the problem is addressed then there’s no need for continuously siphoning taxpayer dollars.

From HuffPo: Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who is running for president, introduced a bill Thursday that would invest billions of more dollars in affordable housing and other initiatives to prevent homelessness.

The “Ending Homelessness Act,” which was co-sponsored by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.), would give an additional $13.27 billion over five years to create an estimated 400,000 affordable housing units.

The funds would go to supportive housing, including homeless shelters and transitional housing, as well as housing vouchers for low-income families and local outreach services to homeless residents.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) introduced a similar bill in the House in March, which passed in committee and is expected to go to the House floor.

“Too many people don’t have a safe place to call home. We must act quickly to tackle our country’s homelessness crisis head on,” Harris said in a news release. “The women and men who woke up this morning on a bench or under an overpass cannot afford to wait.”

The lack of affordable housing is a nationwide crisis, and California has one of the highest rates of homelessness. On any given day in January 2018, more than 500,000 people were homeless in the U.S., according to a federal report.

Nearly a quarter of the nation’s homeless residents live in California. In the past two years, homelessness has spiked in Los Angeles, parts of which Waters represents, and the San Francisco Bay Area, where Harris is from and had served as district attorney.

President Donald Trump went on a tear last month about homelessness in California, notably complaining about how people living in tents were ruining the “prestige” of San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The streets of San Francisco…

Some of Harris’ fellow 2020 contenders have also zeroed in on homelessness in recent weeks, with former Housing Secretary Julián Castro and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke both visiting California last month to speak with people in homeless encampments.

The funds for Harris’ and Waters’ legislation would be appropriated from mandatory emergency relief funding, according to a news release ― but Harris’ team said it was still to be determined, namely through processes in the Senate committee, exactly where the funds would be drawn from.

“In the richest country in the world, it is simply unacceptable that we have people living in the streets,” Waters said in a news release.

Pancho Beto wants to legalize marijuana and release people in prison for weed-related crimes, paying them with Drug War Justice Grants

Thankfully this guy has no shot of becoming president.

From Daily Mail: Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke unveiled a sweeping marijuana legalization plan Thursday that would provide financial grants to people incarcerated for non-violent crimes and impose taxes on the pot industry.

O’Rourke, who gained notoriety while serving on the El Paso City Council when he pushed a resolution to study legalization, would legalize and tax marijuana and ‘end the war on drugs,’ according to a policy announcement released by his campaign.

‘We need to not only end the prohibition on marijuana, but also repair the damage done to the communities of color disproportionately locked up in our criminal justice system or locked out of opportunity because of the War on Drugs,’ O’Rourke said in a statement.

O’Rourke, who is trailing in the polls and who gained notoriety for his proposed assault weapon buy-back program following the mass shooting in his hometown, would regulate and license the production and distribution of marijuana.

Most of the licenses would go to ‘minority-owned businesses and those disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs,’ he said.

He says he will provide ‘“Drug War Justice Grants” to people ‘formerly incarcerated for nonviolent marijuana offenses in state and federal prison after their release, completely funded by a federal tax on the marijuana industry.’

The move follows bipartisan efforts to find ways to reduce the prison population by focusing on nonviolent offenders and turning back mandatory minimum sentences.

He doesn’t offer specifics on either the size of the tax, or the size of the grants.

The former congressman says it will apply ‘for a period based on time served’ and that the grants will be ‘funded completely by the tax on the marijuana industry.’

Other funds would target drug treatment programs and programs to help former convicts reenter society at large.

O’Rourke wants to support those ‘disproportionately impacted by marijuana arrests’ to help them participate in the marijuana business by providing ‘technical assistance, industry-specific training, access to interest free/low-interest loans, and access to investment financing and legal services.’

O’Rourke wrote at 2011 book about marijuana prohibition, ‘Dealing Death and Drugs,’ and used the issue as part of his campaign to unseat Democratic incumbent former Rep. Silvester Reyes.

He also would bar the feds from using marijuana-related arrests as grounds for deportation of people who came here illegally.

He is promoting the plan this week on a swing through Los Angeles and Oakland. His push comes on a day a Fox news poll has him at 4 per cent nationally, behind three poll leaders: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Pancho Beto wants to force banks and credit card companies to stop enabling the sale of “weapons of war”

Fortunately this guy has no shot of becoming our president.

Pancho Beto was on a tweet storm yesterday:

“Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade—and with Washington unwilling to act, they need to cut off the sales of weapons of war today.”

“Banks and credit card companies must: Refuse to take part in the sale of assault weapons. Stop processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks. Stop doing business with gun & ammo manufacturers who produce or sell assault weapons.

“If enough of us make our voices heard now, we will force banks and credit card companies to act. Add your name to this petition we’re sending Visa, Mastercard, and the big banks”

And these people call President Trump the fascist.

You go first, de Blasio: “US needs a program for actual redistribution of wealth”

When you gonna start redistributing some of YOUR $1.5 MILLION net worth, Comrade? Because last time I looked, you and your commie wife gave only $350 to charity in 2017. Typical taxpayer, money-grabbing demorat…

As reported by NY Post: While exploring a run for president in Nevada, Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed a committee to study reparations for descendants of slaves and then went further — saying that the country needs “a program of actual redistribution” of wealth.

A progressive activist asked the mayor his position on reparations at an event in Las Vegas Friday following the endorsement of the compensation plan by other presidential contenders like Elizabeth Warren.

“There’s no question that the issue of reparations has to be taken seriously,” said de Blasio, whose Vegas area barnstorming continues today, stating a clear, public position on the topic for the first time.

“I do believe the way to do it is to form a very public commission and say, ‘What is the way to address this problem once and for all?’”

But, he added, there needs to be a “bigger discussion about income inequality and oppression of other groups including Latinos, Native Americans, Asian and women,” he said at the event organized by the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road.

“I think we’re going to need something bigger even in a way, broader even in a way, then some of the ideas that have been put out there,” he said to the approximately 35 attendees.

“I think a program of actual redistribution which includes much heavier taxes on the wealthy,” he said. “The ultimate resolution has to be profoundly economic,” de Blasio said.

The redistribution comment went further than the message de Blasio has been honing since his state of the city speech in January—that “there’s plenty of money in this city, it’s just in the wrong hands.” During his out-of-city jaunts to early primary states de Blasio has swapped the word “city” for “world” and “country.”

His answer didn’t satisfy the activist who asked the question. “He did what a lot of candidates do, they, ‘All lives matter’ it. They try to broaden reparations for everyone,” Leslie Turner, 37, told The Post after the event.

“It’s actually ok to say, ‘This is actually for black people. We shouldn’t shy away from talking about what reparations specifically for black people could look like,” Turner said.

Other Democratic presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker support studying the matter.
