California Senate takes modest action against #killercops

Screenshot 2018-05-31 at 06.41.49California would lift some of the secrecy surrounding shootings by police under a measure that advanced in the Legislature according to the Associated Press.

The California Senate has approved the public release of police reports when officers are found to have improperly used force or discharged a firearm, committed sexual assaults on the job or have been dishonest in their official duties.

It’s becoming clear to at least some legislators that police union protection of bad cops has become absurd.

The Senate measure is a first step in helping restore public trust amid a national outcry over the all-to-common racially motivated police killings of the poor, the homeless, the mentally-ill, and people of color .

“There is great distrust in this state and in this country as it relates to law enforcement,” said Democratic Sen. Steven Bradford of Gardena. “They should be held to the same accountability as anyone else.”

Naturally Republicans backed the police, and their extra-constitutional killings.

Republicans continued their support for exempting the police from the rigorous demands limiting the use of force by the U.S. Constitution.

To the delight of police union lobbyists, Sen. Jeff Stone of Temecula said the measure could open officers to more attacks and criticism.

The bill now moves to the Assembly.

Billionaires’ money comes too late for #Villaraigosa

Screenshot 2018-04-29 at 08.42.42
Everything is falling into place for Gavin Newsom.

Even though their man is trailing in the polls, with less than a week before California’s June 5 primary, the independent expenditure group backing former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s gubernatorial run has launched an aggressive ad campaign against frontrunner Gavin Newsom.

The ads are the first sustained hits on Newsom, the lieutenant governor and former San Francisco mayor.

Capitol Public Radio reports that the ads come from an outside group run by charter schools and funded by a handful of billionaires — a group that’s now raised more than $20 million.

Villaraigosa is trailing Republican businessman John Cox for second place to earn a spot in the November general election.

Insiders say this is a major paradigm shift as to date rival Democrats and the charters group have essentially given Newsom a free pass.

Poll: #CaGOP paving the way for a big #GavinNewsom win

Screenshot 2018-05-11 at 07.47.41The Sacramento Bee reports that a new poll shows San Diego Republican John Cox holds a seven-point advantage for second place among likely voters in the governor’s election.

So it looks like it’s going to be Cox and Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom facing off in the November general election.

That’s bad news for former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa but great news for Gavin Newsom.

The odds of Republicans winning the governor’s office in the fall are at this point in the category of the absurd…making Newsom’s fall campaign an an absurdly easy task.

Cox can thank President Donald Trump for his endorsement. That seems, according to the Bee, to have Republicans coalescing around Cox’s campaign.

The President’s endorsement was a fatal blow to Republican extremist candidate Assemblyman Travis Allen of Huntington Beach. In April, he and Cox were nearly neck-and-neck, with Cox at 47 percent and Allen at 38 percent among Republicans.

#SanFrancisco: Needle Town U.S.A.

Screenshot 2018-05-30 at 07.56.23.png

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco hands out more free syringes to drug addicts — 400,000 a month and growing — than New York City, which has 10 times the population.

That’s why San Francisco owns the title “Needle Town U.S.A.”

San Francisco residents can thank the board of supervisors and the San Francisco Department of Public Health for the honor. They oversaw the distribution of an estimated 4.5 million syringes last year.

Most, if not all, of the needles wind up discarded on city streets, in parks and at homeless encampments.

It doesn’t stop there. The Chronicle goes on to say that this year, the city is on track to hand out upward of 6 million syringes — which, with a city population of 884,363, works out to nearly seven syringes for every man, woman and child living here.

Mayor Mark Farrell thinks this is all just great. Think about that.

Online privacy initiative likely to be on the November ballot

Screenshot 2018-05-30 at 07.46.08.png

On the heels of Europe’s sweeping new privacy laws that have freaked out the global tech industry, a California initiative is headed for November’s ballot which would be one of the broadest online privacy regulations in the U.S.

So far the initiative has gotten more than 600,000 signatures, nearly twice what it needs to qualify.

So you can expect to see it this fall.

According to Capitol Public Radio, if voters approve the measure, businesses will be required to have a “clear and conspicuous link” on their website’s homepage titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information.” The link would take users to a page where they can opt out of having their data sold or shared.

It’s a great idea. Your private information belongs to you…not Google, Facebook and the rest of the online industry.

If approved, the new law would stop online marketers from targeting ads and selling your personal data. Businesses would be required to disclose the categories of information they have on users — including home addresses, employment information and characteristics such as race and gender.

Neither Congress nor the California Legislature have acted on this issue. It’s time for voters to do it themselves.

 

California’s love for drugs is destroying our national forests

Screenshot 2018-05-30 at 07.32.10.png

Everyone knows Americans love drugs, and that California leads the way. That love comes at a price that’s being increasingly paid for in our national forests.

The Sacramento Bee reports that law enforcement, citing new scientific evidence of “catastrophic” impacts on California’s forests and wildlife, have announced a new crackdown on illegal marijuana growing sites statewide that they say are run by Mexican drug cartels.

Nice going California.

These growing sites are guarded by individuals with weapons and protected with booby traps. The criminals that operate them are using banned pesticides that are polluting water and poisoning endangered species.

All of this is an increased effort to satisfy the constantly growing demand for mind altering chemicals by Californians.

Law enforcement officials say California now produces more marijuana than Mexico. Our state has even become and exporter, providing illegal marijuana to markets around North American.

 

#CaGOP #EpicFail continues as independent voters eclipse #GOP in #California

Screenshot 2018-05-30 at 07.19.36.pngThe day of reckoning is here for the California Republican Party.

The Sacramento Bee is reporting that independent voters have eclipsed Republicans to become the second largest political entity in California.

The data, from Political Data Inc. shows that voters registered with no party preference now outnumber Republicans by about 73,000 in California.

California Republicans, who have flailed away at hating immigrants in general, and Latinos specifically, for years, are now seeing the fruits of their labor.

A bad move in light of California’s Latino heritage and the immigration trends over the past several decades.

The #CaGOP doubles-down on hating #Latinos

California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte.

There they go again. Just when you thought California Republicans just might regain their senses, they jump right back into the arms of their old friend — racism.

Republicans across the state have spoken up in public forums this year to influence local elected officials to take stands on the ‘sanctuary state’ law, the most polarizing immigration issue since voters approved Proposition 187 in 1994.

Their hate is re-inspired.

Naturally, the Republican Party views Senate Bill 54 as a rare political gift and is attempting to capitalize on the fervor to boost the GOP’s already disproportionate influence in a low-turnout election year. According to the Sacramento Bee it the best issue for Republicans in years.

In reality, it’s the death knell for California Republicans who barely outnumber no party preference voters in a deep-blue state where Latinos make up the majority of residents and an increasingly powerful voting bloc.

The Bee points out that both of the top GOP candidates for governor have campaigned on the issue. John Cox encouraged communities in the San Joaquin Valley to reject the policy in Fresno earlier this year.

His top intra-party competitor, state Assemblyman Travis Allen, pledged to reverse the law, if elected, and held a “Take Back California” rally at the border on Sunday.

#SanctuaryState law shields hundreds from #ICE in San Diego

Screenshot 2018-04-18 at 07.41.25

In the first four and a half months since California’s “sanctuary law” went into effect, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department released 349 people who were wanted by immigration officials without alerting the federal agency responsible for deportations.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, that’s over half of the 605 people the agency requested.

California law allows jail officials to not tell ICE when people will be released unless the person has a criminal charge listed as one of the exceptions in the law.

It’s great news for criminals.

Since the law was implemented, arrests by ICE in California have dropped about 25 percent from the previous quarter, from 6,214 to 4,642, according to ICE data. Nationwide, the number of arrests rose about two percent, from 39,169 to 39,945.

California’s vast market of drug users are demanding a stronger high, and drug dealers are racing to meet that demand.

It’s a sign that a new deadly epidemic is on the way. Opioid deaths in California tripled between 2016 and 2017.

Morgan Freeman accused by eight women of sex crimes.

Morgan Freeman says he’s not a sex criminal.

An article published by the Los Angeles Times downplayed the entire issue. Freeman says he joked with his accusers but never offered employment in exchange for sex. He also claims to have never sexually assaulted anyone or created an unsafe work environment.

However…eight women have accused the actor of sexually harassing behavior.

Making the accuser’s case even more compelling, Entertainment Tonight aired a video showing clips from two interviews in which Freeman made suggestive remarks to female reporters.

Move over Harvey Weinstein, it looks like you’re getting company.

#Visa boots #MorganFreemen after #SexCrime allegations surface

The New York Times is reporting that Visa, the credit card company that has used Morgan Freeman’s voice in commercials for several years, announced on Friday that it would stop broadcasting those advertisements after a report that Mr. Freeman had sexually harassed several women.

“We are aware of the allegations that have been made against Mr. Freeman,” a Visa spokesman said in a statement. “At this point, Visa will be suspending our marketing in which the actor is featured.”

The Visa statement followed a similar decision by the Vancouver, Canada, transit system to backtrack on a plan to use Mr. Freeman’s voice for some announcements over its loudspeakers.

It looks pretty bad for Freeman.

SAG-Aftra, the actors union, told The Hollywood Reporter that the reported allegations were “compelling and devastating” and that it was reconsidering the lifetime achievement award it had given to Mr. Freeman earlier this year.

Freeman maintains he is innocent.

#California continues its love affair with narcotics as #opioid use surges

Screenshot 2018-05-25 at 08.27.07.png

Californians love drugs. Especially opioids. Which explains why a record number of Californians died in 2017 after overdosing on fentanyl, the opioid that is many times stronger than other prescription painkillers and heroin.

Fentanyl is wildly popular in the illegal drug trade and has become the drug of choice for many Californians.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that according to the California Department of Public Health, 746 people died from fentanyl overdoses last year.

That is more than three times the 237 people who died from fentanyl overdoses in 2016, and nine times the 81 who died from overdosing on the drug in 2013.

It is the highest number of fentanyl-related deaths the state has seen since public health officials began tracking the numbers in 2008.

District Attorney George Gascon, who is white, has given them a pass.

We’re not surprised.

According to the San Francisco Examiner, Gascon said he decided not to charge the officers with murder or manslaughter in either case because prosecutors could not prove it was unreasonable for the officers to shoot Woods or Gongora.

For San Francisco leaders like Gascon, it has never unreasonable for the SFPD to brutalize and kill people of color. Now it’s encouraged.

Really? She’s been in office for decades, and now all of the sudden she thinks our healthcare system is broken. Amazing.

It shows you the level of desperation in the Feinstein camp.

Her opponent, Sen. Kevin de León, has never wavered in his support of a single-payer health care program. The Sacramento Bee calls it a central plank of his campaign.

De León’s campaign issued a statement accusing Feinstein of trying to mislead voters.

“Now that she has her first serious challenge from a true progressive, Dianne Feinstein is doing everything in her power to make voters think she and Kevin De León have the same position on health care. They don’t.”

De León is right. It’s a long way to November and Feinstein is feeling the pressure.

Great News! Sex criminal Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender to police tomorrow.  Insiders tell CalNews.com that Weinstein is to be charged by the Manhattan district attorney’s office.

Weinstein’s career has been pock-marked by sexual assaults of women then paying them or forcing them through threats to stay quiet..

According to the New York Times, he will face charges in connection to at least one accuser, Lucia Evans, who has said Mr. Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him during a business meeting in 2004.

Prosecutors in Manhattan have also been investigating allegations that Mr. Weinstein raped an actress, Paz de la Huerta, in her home in New York City in 2010.

Investigators in Los Angeles and London have also been investigating sexual assault allegations against Weinstein.

In Manhattan, federal prosecutors have broadened their inquiry into possible financial improprieties to include accusations that Mr. Weinstein violated federal stalking laws.

Echavarre was arrested two days later on charges of lewd and lascivious acts with a child younger than 14, lewd and lascivious acts with a child older than 14 but more than 10 years younger than him and continuous sexual abuse of a child.

California firefighters recoil at having to obey the law

Screenshot 2018-05-24 at 08.05.30Firefighters in California are angry because they now have to obey the law like everybody else.

The Sacramento Bee reports that a new professional standards program at Cal Fire is giving the department a mechanism to hand down discipline in a consistent manner across the state for the first time in its history.

The first time in history? Seriously?

According to the Bee, the program is racking up pay reductions, suspensions and dismissals at a rate that rivals scandal-plagued 2014 — the year when an instructor at its fire academy murdered his mistress and brought intense scrutiny on the department.

It’s about time. The people getting hammered aren’t “heroes”, they’re losers who deserve what they get.

Naturally firefighters being disciplined are playing the victim card. They maintain the discipline is wasting the investment in employees that it took years training.

Not true. These poor performers should never have been hired in the first place. The cost of weeding them out will be significant, but worth it. The taxpayers, and citizens whose lives depend on competent, capable, sober firefighters, deserve no less.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Dianne Feinstein built one of California’s most successful political brands by standing up to her party’s liberal wing.

The Times reports that in her first run for statewide office in 1990, she defiantly faced down raucous booing from California Democratic Party delegates angry over her support for the death penalty. Undeterred, she used footage of the public rebuke in campaign ads to show the state’s then more moderate population — including many Republicans — that she was tough, pragmatic and mainstream.

That centrist formula propelled Feinstein to the U.S. Senate two years later, and after one tough race, she’s coasted to reelection pretty much ever since.

It was all just a scam to get votes.

Now at 84 and seeking a fifth full term in November, Feinstein has flip-flopped.

Feckless Feinstein, desperately seeking votes, now opposes the death penalty. She’s done the same with the question of legalizing marijuana.

California has lurched to the left, and so has she.

In the end, she’s just another rich, white, Washington DC phony pretending to care about the people of California. She has no business holding elected office.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg.

Capitol Public Radio reports that urban sociologist Dr. Jesus Hernandez traces the origins of social ills in Sacramento back to decades-old policy decisions that racially divided the city into neighborhoods with disparate access to resources and economic opportunities.

“We can measure every social ill by this geography,” Hernandez explains.

Longtime Sacramento residents know that Dr. Hernandez is simply pointing out a fact that most everyone in the community knows. Sacramento is run by white elites who have segregated the city’s Latino, African-American and Asian communities into ghettos.

The police routinely surge into these ghettos in order to contain residents and prevent them from access into normal society with it’s rights and privileges.

The bottom line: Sacramento’s white elites don’t want to be near people of color.

Race and poverty in Sacramento are not created by the people in a neighborhood, rather they are a direct result of public policy according to Hernandez. This is deliberate. Hernandez’s research is shocking and compelling.

Sacramento may be one of the nations’s most diverse cities, but it is clearly also one of the most brutally racist.

The San Francisco Police Officers Association thug-in-chief Martin Halloran has stepped down as president of the union.

This is good news for every resident of San Francisco. Halloran made a career out of protecting brutal crooked cops.

Former SFPOA Vice President Tony Montoya has replaced Halloran as president of the union.

According to the San Francisco Examiner, the SFPOA has been accused of stalling police reform since the U.S. Department of Justice released 272 recommendations for reform in 2016 in the wake of numerous brutal killings by police officers.

Montoya was among the subjects of an excessive force lawsuit that San Francisco settled in October 2016 for $40,000. Montoya also reportedly admitted to a neglect of duty charge in 2000 and was suspended for 30 days.

Don’t expect much to change at the San Francisco Police Department. Brutality against the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color will continue.

Are men just too manly?

According to Capitol Public Radio, a string of mass shootings in recent months — most committed by young men — have many wondering who is capable of extreme violence, and how loved ones can intervene before it’s too late.

As a result, the Thought Police are ramping up efforts to neuter the minds of young boys.

Amy Barnhorst, a psychiatrist with UC Davis, said medication isn’t the answer for people who are “full of hatred and bitterness and resentment” or who have “violent, vengeful fantasies against people they think wronged them.”

Apparently there’s lots of 7-year-old boys who carry around this kind of baggage and their brains need to be re-programmed.

Many have tied mass killings to “toxic masculinity” — the idea that a man must always be in power.

Expect legislation to follow.

#Google employees recoil at the thought of helping our troops

Recently, U.S. military commanders and technology executives met with Google to explore ways to apply technology to the battlefield.

Milo Medin, a Google vice president, turned the conversation to using artificial intelligence in war games. Eric Schmidt, Google’s former boss, proposed using that tactic to map out strategies for standoffs with China over the next 20 years.

A few months later, the Defense Department hired Google’s cloud division to work on Project Maven, a sweeping effort to enhance its surveillance drones with technology that helps machines think and see.

The deal could be worth billions for Google.

One problem stands in the way. America-hating Google employees loathe the idea of helping their country.

According to the Mercury News, almost 4,000 Google employees signed a letter asking Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai to nix the project and halt all work in “the business of war.”

FYI the employees hate President Trump too.

So don’t expect smarter drones to replace your kids on battlefields around the world anytime soon.

The feds are also forcing Dell to pay back wages to women and African American engineers and manufacturers who were paid less than white men at two plants in North Carolina, as part of the agreement to remedy alleged pay discrimination violations, the department said.

Feckless Dell agreed to pay without admitting liability.

Farrell’s proposal calls for the bulk of the money — $22 million — to be put toward hiring 225 police officers over the next four years.

“We’re lucky to have some of the best men and women in our Police Department — we simply don’t have enough of them,” Farrell said.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common among people under 30.

According to the Associated Press, the number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high last year. As you might guess, millennial are being hit the hardest.

The shocking numbers have officials worried. State health officials say there has been a spike in stillbirths due to congenital syphilis.

The California Department of Public Health says more than 300,000 cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2017, a 45 percent increase from five years ago.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common among people under 30. Rates of chlamydia are highest among young women, while men account for the majority of syphilis and gonorrhea cases.

This is all bad stuff. If left untreated, chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain. Syphilis can result in blindness, hearing loss and neurologic problems.

The Sacramento Bee reports that a social media campaign is attacking gubernatorial frontrunner Gavin Newsom for a workplace sexual encounter and subsequent romantic relationship with a 19-year-old when he was 39.

The ad sponsors are seeking to raise moral and ethical questions about the former San Francisco mayor before the June 5 primary.

Ya think???

An anti-Newsom independent campaign committee, which in the past has supported Democratic rival and state Treasurer John Chiang, has purchased a California-wide advertisement buy to draw attention to Newsom’s behavior according to the Bee.

The advertisements dredge up bad news about Newsom’s affair, a $10,000 taxpayer-financed sick leave payment to the woman, and a separate relationship he had with a 19-year-old restaurant model and restaurant hostess when he was mayor.

The young woman Newsom assaulted said at the time she suffered from substance abuse problems, including alcohol.

Gary Goddard

Brian Claflin sent an email a statement to a law firm just before his death, alleging that filmmaker Gary Goddard had drugged and sexually assaulted him at age 18 in Los Angeles.

Acccording to the Los Angeles Times, Claflin had made the allegation repeatedly in the preceding decade. The Times claims to have spoken with three people — two close friends and his sister, Molly Jones — who said Claflin told them about the alleged assault, and he accused Goddard directly in an email exchange in 2006.

The rich and famous Goddard vociferously denied the allegation then, as he does now.

However Goddard knew Claflin since he was 18. According to the Times he supported Claflin’s nomadic lifestyle.

Hey, it was because Mr. Goddard was a nice guy right…not because of sex. Right?

Yeah, right, whatever you say Mr. Goddard.

This isn’t the first time something like this has happened to Goddard. The director, producer and theme park designer, has faced similar allegations before.

The parade of victims is getting pretty long. Eight former members of a Santa Barbara youth theater group. Another telling friends Goddard sexually assaulted him as a child.

Rich and famous, and able to maneuver easily inside the court system, Goddard, like Hollywood sex criminal Roman Polanski, may never see the inside of a jail cell.

In the court of public opinion however, it’s pretty clear he’s another name on the growing list of Hollywood sex criminals.

#WillieBrown slams #Democrats for bashing President #Trump

Screenshot 2018-05-14 at 08.03.16.pngFinally, a grown-up is stepping in.

Willie Brown writes in the San Francisco Chronicle that it’s “time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump.”

It’s about time someone said it. The secret to winning elections is about contrasting your candidate’s views with the other candidate and persuading voters that your side is better.

Democrats clearly don’t get it.

Brown goes on, “setting a winning agenda is like maneuvering an aircraft carrier. It takes time to change course. And if they want to be on target for the November midterm elections, the Democrats need to start changing course now.”

As Brown points out, President Trump’s policies are popular and the economy is humming along smoothly.

It’s no surprise then that the “jobs growth reports, the North Korea summit and the steady economy are beating out the Stormy Daniels scandal and the Robert Mueller investigation in Middle America, hands down.”

What is surprising is that Democrats haven’t figured this out.

Brown concludes, “Democrats need to look like the adults, not like another pack of screaming kids on the playground.”

So far, they have not.

For all the hand wringing the Bee, Mayor Darrell Steinberg, and the rest of Sacramento’s elites do about racial justice, it’s pretty clear that the only difference between the city and the Ku Klux Klan is the clothes they wear.

Schubert not only does not deserve re-election…she, and Steinberg, and the brutal Sacramento Police and Sheriff’s Departments, should be investigate by federal authorities for hate crimes directed at the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color.

Screenshot 2018-05-11 at 07.43.34.png

The Fresno Bee reports that the Fresno City Council will introduce a bill to make medical marijuana businesses legal in the city.

Last December the city council voted to rewrite a complete ban on commercial marijuana operations.

However everyone in Fresno thinks legal marijuana is a great deal. The cannabis industry hasn’t gone out of its way to make friends in this community. If anything they’ve done the opposite.

A recent Fresno Police Department news conference last week revealed an investigation that led to arrests and citations at a dispensary that sold candy inside packages labeled with cartoon characters. Police Chief Jerry Dyer said such packaging made the pot attractive to children.

Duh? Joe Camel?? What are these people thinking???

Any ordinance adopted would have to be approved by the voters in November. Pot-heads in Fresno might want to get their act together before then.

#SacramentoPD continues to terrorize #AfricanAmericans

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert look the other way while the Sacramento Police Department continues to terrorize African-Americans.

The Sacramento Police Department continues to terrorize the city’s African-American community.

The Sacramento Bee has released a video showing the arrest of a man who police say left his car running outside a 7-Eleven.

For that, the man, Craig Williams, was tackled to the ground and arrested. Really, for leaving his car running at 7-Eleven.

According to the Bee, the video release, which included a more than six-minute-long body camera clip and three surveillance camera videos, came hours after the Sacramento NAACP held a press conference with Craig Williams, the man arrested.

The incident is part of an ongoing pattern of racist brutality by the department’s rank and file officers toward people of color.

“At the end of the day, he shouldn’t have been in jail,” Betty Williams, the chapter’s president, said during the press conference.

The NAACP is of course correct.

The NAACP has urged Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert to refrain from filing charges in the case.

Williams also demanded that the police department release body camera footage of the incident, which had not yet happened at the time of the press conference.

Later, the department released an edited version of their body camera video.

Craig Williams is lucky to be alive today.

#Rapist #RomanPolanski lashes out at #MeToo

Rapist Roman Polanski.

Rapist filmmaker Roman Polanski says the #MeToo movement, which outs the sex crimes of powerful men in Hollywood is “collective hysteria” and “total hypocrisy.”

 

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Polanski made the comment in a recent interview given just days before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stripped him of his nearly 50-year membership.

In 1977 Polanski raped a minor.

The rapist Polanski said that to him, #MeToo is a “collective hysteria of the kind that sometimes happens in the society.”

“Everyone is trying to sign up, chiefly out of fear,” he said, comparing it to North Korea’s public mourning for its leaders when everyone cries so much that “you can’t help laughing.”

“To me this is total hypocrisy,” he said, but did not elaborate.

WTF??? Seriously???? #MeToo is like North Korea?????

Polanski is clearly a mental case.

Polanski’s feckless lawyer in Poland, Jan Olszewski, said that stripping Polanski of his Academy membership bore signs of “psychological abuse of an elderly person” for “populist goals.”

Olszewski made no mention of the psychological abuse inflicted on Polanski’s victim.

The rapist Polanski remains a fugitive after fleeing the United States in 1978 over the unlawful sex case.

President Trump should demand that Poland turn him over to U.S. authorities immediately. He is a rapist criminal. He should be punished.

 

#SanFrancisco gave out millions of free syringes to junkies…now they’re all over the streets

Screenshot 2018-05-09 at 08.41.08.png

A humiliated City of San Francisco has been forced to face that facts that it’s handed out millions of free needles and syringes to junkies…who used them then trashed the city.

The San Francisco Chronicle writes that for all of City Hall’s tough talk of late about getting needles off the streets, the city itself is responsible for helping fuel the problem — handing out millions of syringes a year with little or no controls over their return.

In the fantasy world of San Francisco politicians, easy access to clean syringes is intended to protect public health.

Normal people know this is delusional. Now, the city’s residents are really pissed.

Mayor Mark Farrell says the situation is unacceptable. C’mon man! It’s only unacceptable that is now that people are angry with him and it’s an election year.

The Chronicle goes on to report that the health department is the biggest source of the needles — it hands out an estimated 400,000 syringes a month through various programs aimed at reducing HIV and other health risks for drug users.

Basically the city has given millions of needles to junkies over the years and then walked away.

In fiscal 2013-14, for example, health department records show the city handed out 3.3 million needles at a cost of $400,397. Two years later, it handed out 4.45 million needles at a cost of $523,363.

That’s a lot of drug use.

#NBC investigates itself, and wouldn’t you know it, no more #sexualpreditors

NBC sex criminal Matt Lauer.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that NBC News’ internal investigation following Matt Lauer’s firing says it doesn’t believe there is a culture of sexual harassment at the division.

Yeah right.

Furthermore, the network assures everyone that current management wasn’t aware of Lauer’s behavior until the complaint that doomed him.

Yeah, right. As if NBC has any credibility on this issue.

The humiliated network admits more needs to be done to ensure its more than 2,000 employees can complain about bad behavior and not fear retaliation.

Like obeying state and federal law maybe??? Duh!

That’s a good idea since everybody on the planet knows the network has a culture of sexual brutality that makes the exploitation of women routine.

We think NBC News Chairman Andy Lack needs to be investigated. After all, management leads by example right?

All of this is really fake news since NBC turned to its general counsel, Kim Harris, to conduct the investigation.

NBC claims the work of its all-female investigative team, whose jobs no doubt depended on how their report turned out, was reviewed and approved by two outside firms.

Yeah, right.

After all the investigating, investigators found no evidence that anyone “in position of authority” at NBC News knew that Lauer had sexual relationships with others in the company until the Nov. 27 complaint by a woman about an affair that began at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Two of the four women who complained about Lauer say management did know. No surprise there.

In the end, “the investigation team does not believe that there is a widespread or systemic pattern of behavior that violates company policy or a culture of harassment in the News Division,” Harris’ report said.

Naturally.

Scathing safety allegations slam #SouthwestAirlines

Screenshot 2018-05-08 at 08.18.39

According to NBC News, months before an airborne accident claimed the life of a Southwest Airlines passenger, the Federal Aviation Administration found that distrust between managers and mechanics at Southwest’s Dallas maintenance base was so bad, FAA investigators feared it could put passengers at risk.

Southwest mechanics told the FAA that Southwest supervisors discouraged mechanics from reporting some aircraft problems and that supervisors questioned mechanics when they found maintenance issues beyond portions of the plane they had been assigned to inspect.

No surprise here. It’s how corporate America rolls.

The FAA concluded that Southwest management’s questioning of mechanics appeared to be, “… a tool used to influence a relaxing of standards, to look the other way, or to gain a degree of approval through a leniency of standards.”

It added: “The result of this pattern is a capitulation of airworthiness and a culture of fear and retribution. Some personnel have resorted to photographing their findings … as a tool to ensure they can prove what they discovered in the event they are questioned by management.”

The FAA’s comments portrayed a broken safety culture inside two of Southwest’s large maintenance operations.

The FAA made its findings six months before a woman, who was on a SWA flight from New York to Dallas, was partially pulled out of a window that had been broken out by flying debris from a malfunctioning engine. She later died at a hospital.

Numerous other safety issues surfaced during NBC’s investigation. It’s pretty clear Southwest could care less.

Put solar panels on your new home…or else

Screenshot 2018-05-08 at 08.02.53.pngIn order to achieve the solar power utopia that elected officials and far Left activists yearn for, California is becoming the first state in the nation to require that virtually every new home be equipped with solar panels.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the California Energy Commission on Wednesday plans to require solar panels on single-family houses built after Jan. 1, 2020. Take that Global Warming!

So what if it ads another 10K to the price of a home? The reality is most people in California can’t afford to buy their own home anyway.

According to Leftists, homeowners would recover their costs in about 30 years. That’s comforting.

The feckless California Building Industry Association happily went along with the deal. What do they care? After all builders are just going to pass along the costs to home buyers anyway.

 

Assembly throws another $1 billion at #healthcare while Republicans bleat about cost

Republicans Matthew Harper and Devon Mathis.

Capitol Public Radio reports that the Assembly is throwing another $1 billion to help the floundering Covered California.

Legislators want to expand Medi-Cal to undocumented young adults, as well as to low-income women and children. They also hope to launch an insurance payment database, increase the number of doctors in rural areas and provide more financial assistance to Covered California customers.

Republicans Devon Mathis and Matthew Harper voted against the plan in committee. Of course being Republicans they had no counter proposal to offer. They just took the lazy way out.

Roughly 4 million Californians gained Medi-Cal coverage under the Affordable Care Act, and 1.3 million people are now enrolled in Covered California, the individual marketplace created by Obamacare.

A big part of the budget proposed by the Assembly provides premium assistance and tax credits for Covered California enrollees. One quarter would extend Medi-Cal eligibility to undocumented adults age 19 to 25. Undocumented children became eligible in 2016.

This is great news for insurance companies who keep getting richer in California.

#Nazi #Republicans are back

A Nazi GOP Senate candidate got the boot from the California Republican Party’s convention in San Diego. He must have been at the wrong convention.

Then again, you can’t blame him for being confused. National Socialists and the California Republican Party have so much in common.

Outwardly, party officials said that, from the outset of the convention the candidate, Patrick Little, was not welcome at the gathering.

“There’s no room for that kind of hate speech that that man uses,” said Cynthia Bryant, executive director of the California Republican Party.

Patrick Little

But Prop. 187 and hating Mexicans is still OK right M. Bryant?

According to the Los Angeles Times, Little emerged from obscurity after a recent SurveyUSA poll found that he was supported by 18% of California voters, putting him in second place behind Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is running for her fifth full term.

On his campaign website, Little describes himself as an American first candidate who is “fighting for US Citizens in California.”

That sounds pretty Republican to us.

Being white and rich has been great for #GavinNewsom

Screenshot 2018-05-06 at 06.11.03
Rich, white Gavin Newsom.

You don’t see this every day. A columnist from the Sacramento Bee unloading on rich, white Gavin Newsom.

The 50-year-old Lt. Governor and former Mayor of San Francisco is the living embodiment of privilege and people seem to be OK with that. He has white male privilege. Class privilege. Wealth privilege. The privilege of good looks.

All creates a Teflon exterior, protecting Newsom’s horrendous lapses of judgment and character, excusing his questionable background. It is simply accepted without eliciting the negative scrutiny that would dog or even derail lesser mortals.”

Wow! But wait, it gets better.

“If one of Newsom’s opponents – say former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa or State Treasurer John Chiang – were bankrolled by one of the richest men in California for most of their lives, as Newsom has been by oil heir Gordon Getty , they would be answering for it every day on the campaign trail. A Mexican American guy or an Asian guy having a rich, white sugar daddy greasing the skids for them at every critical turn of their adult lives would be viewed with suspicion. But that is what Newsom had with Getty.

Villaraigosa or Chiang would have been described as puppets. They would be described as being in the pocket of their patron.

But for Newsom, Getty is portrayed as a “family friend.” Meanwhile, Newsom has gotten to call himself an “entrepreneur” for years.”

It’s hard to argue with any of this.

“This isn’t a new story. Back in 2003, the San Francisco Chronicle wrote that Getty helped Newsom become a millionaire by investing in every one of his ventures. A story in The Sacramento Bee a year ago chronicled Newsom’s ties to Getty and his financial benefits from them. Where would Newsom’s privileged portfolio be without Getty pumping money into his wine business, hospitality business, real estate business?

Getty was often the lead investor in Newsom businesses and, as it always does, money followed money. The picture of Newsom that has evolved over time is of a man who just naturally runs with the wealthy. He doesn’t generate headlines because, say, institutional money flowing his way.”

Giving money to Mexicans or Chinese candidates? For the elite white media, that’s a whole different story. Just ask Antonio Villaraigosa or John Chiang.

#FresnoState endorses #hatespeech

Fresno State says OK to Randa Jarrar’s hate speech.

People in Fresno are angry and embarrassed. Fresno State president Joseph Castro could care less.

His job is to protect racist psychopath Randa Jarrar’s job.

The Fresno Bee reported that Castro announced last week that the university would not discipline the racist professor.

Castro came up with a lame response. “We have consulted at length with our counsel…we have no justification to undertake disciplinary action.”

See, we told you so.

Fresno City councilman Steve Brandau said he would like an explanation of Fresno State’s hiring process.

“She advocates violence and there’s an element of racism in there,” he said. “If that’s not hate speech I don’t know what’s hate speech.”

Councilman Brandau is right. It’s hate speech. Something California prides itself on stamping out. Except when it comes to Jarrar.

Cox’s ad attacks Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa for cheating on their wives.

Now there’s an original story-line. Nice going Republicans. As if no one has ever cheated on their spouse in California.

In typical child-like Republican fashion, the ad attacks Newsom and Villaraigosa for their past sexual affairs as images of Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, Roger Ailes, Steve Wynn and Al Franken appear on the screen.

Voters are somehow expected to believe that Cox, who is also a wealthy powerful white guy, is somehow immune from the disease that has affected the aforementioned list of perps.

Yeah right.

Interestingly, Cox gave fellow Republican gubernatorial candidate Travis Allen a pass. Allen was named earlier this year in the Legislature’s release of sex crime investigation records.

The California Republican Party clown show keeps rolling along. What’s next Cox? An ad saying Newsom and Villaraigosa smoked weed perhaps? OMG!!!

If this ad does nothing else, it tells voters Cox is unfit to be our next Governor.

#LATimes, #LAPD working overtime to defend #TonyCardenas in sex crime case

Screenshot 2018-05-04 at 06.56.29.png
Rep. Tony Cardenas

The Los Angeles Times reports that Rep. Tony Cardenas has confirmed that he is the unidentified elected official in a lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles alleging sexual molestation of a teenage girl in 2007.

Cardenas says he’s innocent.

Cardenas’ defense centers around discrediting the victim. We thought those days have passed…but apparently not. His attorney said the woman who filed the suit is the daughter of a “disgruntled former employee” and “may be the victim of manipulation.”

Maybe. Then again maybe she was molested? It would be nice to know the truth before casting innuendos about wouldn’t it?

The suit states that the young woman came forward with the allegations because of the #MeToo movement that followed numerous disclosures of sexual harassment by high-profile business leaders and politicians. This is totally understandable.

The Times, apparently working overtime to defend Cardenas, says it has been unable to corroborate the allegations, and no public evidence has emerged to support them. This is the same kind of disclaimer the Times uses when the police execute a person of color.

The alleged crime is right out of Bill Cosby’s playbook. The she was given water with a “peculiar taste” on a Los Angeles golf course and then molested her later in a car.

The Los Angeles Police Department hasn’t bothered to open an investigation.

 

California Legislature: You get raped, you report it, you get fired

Screenshot 2018-05-03 at 13.38.24.png

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a former aide to a California legislator has sued the Senate alleging it failed to accommodate her emotional disabilities following her sexual assault by an Assembly staffer.

Instead, according to the victim, she was fired for work performance issues.

Plaintiff “Jane Doe” worked for Sen. Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont).  Wieckowski wasn’t named in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit names Senate Secretary Daniel Alvarez and Jeannie Oropeza, the Senate’s head of human resources, as defendants. The plaintiff contends contending they fired her in retaliation for alleging she was raped and for seeking special treatment in her working conditions.

So far it seems little has changed in Sacramento. To no one’s surprise, a police investigation did not result in any criminal charges, and an Assembly review did not substantiate allegations that anyone violated state policy.

The Legislature’s bottom line: You get raped, you report it, you get fired. That’s not how it’s supposed to work.

#Racist #Merced thug cops beat #AfricanAmerican man senseless — twice!

William Colbert, targeted by racist Merced police and brutally beaten twice.

The Merced Police Department brutally beat William Colbert. It was outrageous and uncalled for. The bottom line, the police did it for no other reason than Mr. Colbert is African-American.

Everybody knows it.

Which explains why the city of Merced has denied a public records request for body and dashboard camera footage from Mr. Colbert’s arrest.

Merced’s racist cops have been caught red-handed and authorities are working feverishly to cover up their crimes.

As is typical with the police in California, African-American men like Mr. Colbert are beaten for “resisting arrest.” Once Mr. Colbert arrived at the Merced County Jail, officers beat him again.

Even after all that “resisting,” the Merced County District Attorney’s Office hasn’t charged Mr. Colbert with any kind of crime. It’s pretty obvious they are more focused on covering up the police officers crimes and making up some kind of false narrative to explain why Mr. Colbert was beaten senseless.

According to Mr. Colbert, a Merced police officer he identified as William McComb approached him and called him “snitch bitch gang member” while he was shopping in a convenience store.

Naturally Mr. Colbert was offended. That’s all it took to set off the officers off. The first beating followed.

The fact is, Mr. Colbert is a welder and pipe-fitter and has no gang affiliation. He even attended Merced College with another officer on scene, identified as Joseph Opinski.

The other cop outed by the Merced Sun-Star was Brandon Wilkins who Mr. Colbert says beat him at the Merced County Jail.

As a result of the beatings, Mr. Colbert had to be taken to Mercy Medical Center in Merced, twice!

Gas price hell is coming

Screenshot 2018-05-03 at 07.26.15The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the price of gas is now above $3.50 a gallon in all major cities across California. In San Francisco some gas stations are topping out at $4 or higher.

Those prices are going even higher. Some areas are going to break records.

California’s gas tax is nearly $.50 per gallon. One of the highest in the nation. Couple that with the state’s clean fuel mandates and you’ve got a recipe for gas price hell.

Elsewhere in America, the U.S. daily national average for regular gasoline is now $2.81 per gallon.

Great news for the oil industry. They stand to make billions from this summer’s driving season in California. All those campaign donations in Sacramento keep paying off.

Keep resisting California. Keep resisting.

#Elite #SiliconValley Community Foundation continues to self-destruct

The Silicon Valley Community Foundation is looking at its vice president overseeing recruitment and culture in the rear view mirror.

“We have recently received the voluntary resignation of our Vice President of Talent, Recruitment and Culture and will work to fill that position as we look to heal our organization and open a new chapter at SVCF,” the San Francisco Chronicle has reported.

Previously the foundation’s CEO, Emmett Carson, was put on paid administrative leave and manager, Mari Ellen Loijens, resigned after being exposed for harassing the staff.

It seems pretty clear to us at least, that Natochy got the axe thanks to the same angry staff fed up with management’s abuses. Natochy made a bee-line for the door and so far has ducked the press.

Natochy’s bio has been pulled from Foundation’s website. Her Twitter page has been taken down. That tells us a lot.

The Council of Foundations still includes Natochy’s bio:

It’s common knowledge that sexism, racism and workplace brutality are the norm in Silicon Valley. Why should we expect anything different from a foundation the tech elites underwrite?

We’ll probably never get the whole story as this affair will get swept under the rug by the white elites who run the Foundation. Nonetheless it’s pretty easy to read between the lines.

White legislators railroaded an #AfricanAmerican colleague, now they are doing the same to his successor

Screenshot 2018-05-02 at 08.33.16.png
Senator Rod Wright

Four years ago, Rod Wright resigned from the California Senate and served jail time after being convicted of eight felonies, including perjury and voter fraud.

All for living outside the district where he ran for office.

Seriously.

Wright argued that he had done everything necessary to establish as his legal “domicile” an Inglewood home that he owned and where he registered to vote. This is true.

White elite Los Angeles County prosecutors, using photos of another house in the upscale neighborhood of Baldwin Hills, convinced a jury that Wright actually lived several miles away.

The conviction upset many of Wright’s colleagues, who point out that the definition of a “domicile,” which establishes the eligibility of someone to run for a particular legislative seat, does not include the word “live” anywhere in it: “that place in which his or her habitation is fixed, wherein the person has the intention of remaining, and to which, whenever he or she is absent, the person has the intention of returning.”

This is how white legislators get around the law.

Screenshot 2018-05-02 at 08.35.34
Senator Steven Bradford

According to the Sacramento Bee, among those upset is Sen. Steven Bradford, a Democrat from Gardena who represents the district that Wright once did. He is carrying a measure this session that would effectively prohibit the sort of residency requirement enforcement that ended Wright’s political career.

White elite organizations including the American Civil Liberties Union are opposed to the bill. California Common Cause wrote to the committee that it would establish a double-standard placing legislators “uniquely above the law” by giving them “carte blanche to lie about their residence for voting purposes,” while courts have no way to review whether they actually live at the domicile they claim.

ACLU or Common Cause have no problem with white legislators doing the same thing.

Bradford disputes that SB 1250 would allow candidates to run for office in a district where they don’t live. He said it “changes absolutely nothing.”

After all, many white legislators own homes in Sacramento, and spend very little time in their Southern California districts. That’s still OK with the white elites.

Sacramento white elites release #fakenews #StephonClark autopsy

Screenshot 2018-04-21 at 07.58.07In a desperate effort to cover up the brutal police state execution of Stephon Clark, the notoriously racist Sacramento Police Department released the Sacramento County version of the autopsy of Mr. Clark.

They they slammed the Clark family and their private autopsy.

A supposedly “independent review” of the autopsy also says the county’s findings “do not support the assertion that Clark was shot primarily from behind.”

According to Capitol Public Radio, the county autopsy concludes that Clark was struck by seven bullets, whereas the family autopsy by Dr. Bennet Omalu said he was hit eight times, mostly in the back.

Seriously? Seven or eight? WTF is the difference? It was still an execution.

Screenshot 2018-04-20 at 06.53.45Dr. Gregory Reiber, a forensic pathologist with Placer County, independently reviewed the county’s autopsy, said Omalu’s autopsy mistook an exit wound as an entrance. “This is a significant error,” Reiber wrote, “as it leads to incorrect conclusions regarding the relative positions of the victim and shooters during the event.”

He also disagreed with findings that Clark was shot mostly in the back. That even though Clark had multiple bullet holes in his back?

Omalu told Capital Public Radio on Tuesday before the county’s autopsy was released that “the two autopsies performed by two different doctors should not be exactly the same.” He said that people should consider “either-or” when coming to conclusions on how Clark was killed. “You should use both.”

Reiber, from notoriously racist Placer County is clearly the key to the effort to exonerate the two killers who murdered Clark.

For good measure, the white doctors threw in a toxicology report indicating that Clark had active levels of codeine and alprazolam (Xanax) in his system during the shooting. The report also found trace elements of cocaine and cannabis.

So Clark was a pretty normal American….taking prescription meds, smoking some weed and snorting some blow. For that he was executed?

Omalu said the “toxicological profile of this individual is of no forensic consequence because when he was shot they [the officers] did not know he was intoxicated.”

We agree.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Monday weighed in on Kanye West’s recent comments about President Trump. Now Mr. West’s life is in danger.

Mr. West had the audacity to praise President Trump.

The issue that cause a frenzy on social media last week was Mr. West’s tweeting his support for President Trump, whom he called his “brother.”

“We are both dragon energy. He is my brother,” West tweeted.

The President thanked the rapper on Twitter, complimenting Mr. West for doing “a great service to the Black Community.”

Waters moved quickly to put the African-American superstar in his place, saying he sometimes “talks out of turn.”

She didn’t stop there. Waters, went on to say that he sometimes needs help to “formulate some of his thoughts….And I think maybe he should think twice about politics, and maybe not have so much to say.”

“Better not ever see you around the LBC, better not ever see you around California,” he added. “Stay in Calabasas.”

The message is clear. Mr. West has been sentenced to death by Maxine Waters. The brutal Crips have been tasked to carry out his execution.

 

Zero compassion left for the #homeless in #SanFrancisco

Screenshot 2018-05-01 at 07.04.35

According to the East Bay Times, San Francisco is is about out of  compassion for the needy.

The tolerant citizens of the Bay Area’s jewel have had enough of tent camps, stinky urine and trash littering the streets.

So the fight’s on. You can bet the homeless will come out on the short end of the upcoming skirmish with America’s meanest city.

Mayor Mark Farrell has promised $750,000 to hire more people just to pick up discarded needles and $13 million over the next two years for more heavy duty steam cleaners and pit stop toilets. He also had workers dismantle sprawling homeless tent camps in the city’s Mission District.

All this means lots of cops knocking heads together all over town.

Up until now, commuters routinely walk past people slumped over in transit stations, sometimes shooting up in public.

However the squalor has gotten out of control.

City leaders like the mayor think everyone should feel safe using city sidewalks. “Everyone” in San Francisco means the white elites who run the city.

The number of homeless people in San Francisco is staggering. Last year city workers were called more than 24,000 times to clean up human waste, and almost 10,000 calls came in to pick up used needles.

The place is disgusting.

Naturally homeless advocacy groups are freaking out about the crackdown. Homeless people in the city just want some free stuff.

Lawana Tillman, 55, camps out in a wheelchair with friends on a corner they’ve claimed near Market Street. Most of them have been homeless for years. The women say they welcome help, but haven’t seen any offers.

“They should first interview us and give us housing,” she said. “It would take most of us off the street.”

There you have it.

New bill would allow non-citizens to serve on state boards and commissions

If you’re in California illegally, but feel compelled to offer your services to your adopted state, you may be eligible to serve on all state and local boards and commissions under a new law being debated in Sacramento.

The bill would make it legal to appoint any resident over the age of 18 to a civil office regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Under current law, an appointee needs to be a U.S. citizen.

The Sacramento Bee reports that federal law prohibits residents without legal status from seeking salaried positions, however immigrants granted work authorization under the Federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program would be eligible for pay.

As we’ve seen in the past, Sacramento has a situational view of federal law.

#UCBerkeley #fakenews poll pushes outcome based result

UC Berkeley’s latest fake news attack on the President.

According to a new UC Berkeley IGS Poll online pole, two-thirds of registered voters in the Golden State are dissatisfied with Trump’s overall job performance and feel special counsel Robert Mueller’s work to investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election is important.

No surprise here. One would not anticipate an objective poll from this source.

As reported by the Sacramento Bee, nearly two thirds of voters also said Mueller’s work should be pursued “wherever it leads.”

Not surprising, Democrats and Republicans expressed opposite views. More than nine out of 10 Democrats disapproved, while eight out of 10 Republicans approved of Trump’s performance.

Pollsters were force to concede that voters valued the President’s work on jobs and the economy and his handling of North Korea.

The poll claims President Trump’s overall approval rating dropped to 31 percent.

In the end, the purpose of this poll was to disparage the President of the United States and create a false narrative leading to a preconceived negative result.

It’s fake news.
