Jerry Brown Insists CA Sanctuary Laws Don’t Benefit Criminal Illegal Aliens

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

Governor Jerry Moonbeam Brown is seriously delusional. 

California Governor Jerry Brown on Tuesday insisted that California’s “sanctuary state” laws do not benefit criminal illegal aliens.

While speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, Brown was asked whether California’s “sanctuary state” laws favor the “rights of criminal illegal aliens over the rights” of law-abiding Californians.

Brown said that notion is “absolutely false” and claimed that there is not a “scintilla of evidence that would support such an outlandish” proposition.

The California governor also said that it is a “lie” to say that Fullerton’s Grace Aguilar would still be alive if the state had more stringent immigration enforcement.

Aguilar, who was just six years of age, was reportedly murdered this year while sitting in her front yard by a twice-deported illegal immigrant who was driving under the influence.

NBC4 reported in February:

Immigration officials say 50-year-old Maximino Delgado Lagunas, who is in the United States illegally, had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when he was arrested. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revealed to NBC4 that Lagunas, a Mexican national, had been deported twice, once in 2001 and again in 2008.

Court records show that in 2015 he was arrested for another DUI. Immigration officials say that back then Buena Park police did not detain Lagunas for the required 48 hours for pickup by immigration officials, instead placing him on informal probation and releasing him to the streets.

It took the Aguilars eight years to have their precious Grace, who was described as someone who “loved people, nature and God.”

Brown last year signed SB 54, the state’s main sanctuary law that prohibits local authorities from honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers, and he has vehemently defended it.

After the Trump administration filed a lawsuit against three of California’s “sanctuary state” laws in March, Brown accused the Trump administration of “going to war” against the Golden State.

“This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy,” Brown said then. “It’s not wise, it’s not right, and it will not stand.”

Tuesday at the National Press Club, Brown also said that local officials who have been voting to defy the state’s sanctuary laws were “low-life” politicians trying to “exploit” the immigration issue.

David Hogg Will Skip Year of College to Focus on ’18 Elections After UC Irvine Offers Admission

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

David Camera Hogg is a loud mouthed school yard bully seeking 15 more minutes of fame.

Even Left-wing comedian and free-speech advocate Bill Maher says David Camera Hogg is a bully.                                 

UC Irvine (UCI) reportedly offered admission to David Hogg, but the Parkland activist has decided to take a year off from college to focus on the 2018 midterm elections.

Hogg’s mother told CNN on Monday that her son “will not be going to college this year because he’s decided to take a year off and work on the midterm elections.”

TMZ reported on Sunday that Hogg received an acceptance letter from UCI that partly read: “Students choose UCI to make a true difference in the world, we hope you will too.”

After Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted that Hogg, who told numerous outlets that he was “hurt” that some of California’s top public schools rejected him, had whined about not being accepted to various colleges, the left-wing teenage activist immediately called on Ingraham’s advertisers to drop her.

More than a dozen advertisers immediately caved to the left-wing Twitter mob that Hogg unleashed before Ingraham took her pre-planned Easter vacation last week. Ingraham returns to the air on Monday evening.

Ingraham apologized to Hogg, but Hogg refused to accept it, telling outlets like CNN and MSNBC that he was offended and disgusted that the Fox News host, in his opinion, was also promoting her television show while apologizing to him.

Hogg recently told NBC News reporter Kerry Sanders that his boycott fight with Ingraham was just a “practice round” for the bigger battle against the right, the National Rifle Association (NRA), and pro-Second Amendment politicians.

He told Sanders that he and is friends will go after the advertisers of anyone who calls them out.

“We’re going to go after the money, because that’s where it hurts them the most,” Hogg said.

Left-wing comedian and free-speech advocate Bill Maher recently came to Ingraham’s defense, asking whether it was “American” to call for massive boycotts to silence speech that people do not like.

“Is that American?” Maher asked on his Friday’s Real Time on HBO. “And he complains about bullying? That’s bullying. I have been the victim of a boycott. I lost a job once. It is wrong.”

 

Gun Control Fail: Nasim Aghdam Used Legally Purchased Registered Handgun in YouTube Attack

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

  Nasim Aghdam’s story faded from the lamestream media because she is a Muslim and a vegan so she does not fit the angry white male shooter profile of the lamestream media.

Facebook

Nasim Aghdam, 39, used a legally purchased, registered handgun to shoot innocents at YouTube headquarters on Tuesday.

She also reportedly visited a shooting range on Tuesday, prior to targeting YouTube headquarters.

The Atlanta Voice reports the gun was a Smith & Wesson 9mm, which was registered to Aghdam. And CBS/AP report that police confirmed the handgun was “legally purchased and owned.”

That means Aghdam obtained her gun via a background check, then registered it with the state, as required by California law.

It also means that background checks and a registration requirement once again proved impotent to stop a determined attacker.

Despite the state’s tough gun control laws, Elliot Roger shot and killed three near Santa Barbara on March 23, 2014; Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik shot and killed 14 at a San Bernardino County Building on December 2, 2015; and Albert Wong shot and killed three innocents at the Yountville Veterans Home on March 9, 2018.

Moreover, as Breitbart News has reported, California gun control goes far beyond background checks and registration requirements. The state has an “assault weapons” ban, a 10-day waiting period of firearm purchases, a requirement that would-be gun purchasers first obtain a firearm safety certificate from the state, and a “good cause” threshold for concealed carry permit issuance.

The state also pioneered the gun violence restraining orders (GVROs) that have been pushed as a solution to high profile shootings in the wake of the February 14 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Despite such stringent gun control, Aghdam carried a gun onto the YouTube campus; shot and wounded three innocents; then killed herself.

Sacramento Home Seller Refuses to Sell to Trump Supporters

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbart California.

This strikes me as housing discrimination.

A homeowner in Sacramento, California, who has put her family home on the local real estate market is refusing to sell it to anyone who supports President Donald Trump.

Experts disagree over whether her approach is illegal. Some say that her stance, while obnoxious, may not be illegal because political preference is not one of the categories protected by anti-discrimination laws.

Local CBS News affiliate CBS 13 reports:

“I told her [the realtor] that I didn’t want her to sell it to a Trump supporter,” said the woman.

She wants a sale contingent upon how someone votes, but is that legal?

Attorney Allen Sawyer doesn’t believe so.

“That’s an unlawful contractual term that infringes the freedom of association and first amendment rights,” said Sawyer.

But that doesn’t prevent a seller from discussing this kind of request during a sale.

“We can ask somebody how they voted, but they don’t have to tell us,” said realtor Elizabeth Weintraub.

According to the Fair Housing Act, political party affiliation doesn’t fall into one of the seven protected classes. They include race, religion, color, disability. National origin, sex and familial status.

The home seller’s stance would exclude 2 out of every 5 prospective buyers, according to voting data.

(Read the rest of the CBS 13 report here.)

Earlier this month, the Washingtonian reported that conservatives in the nation’s capital city were finding it difficult to find dates because liberals excluded them when browsing online dating profiles.

“In a city as overwhelmingly Democratic as DC, the combination of lingering anger over Hillary Clinton‘s loss and President Trump‘s existence makes it tricky for conservatives to date across party lines,” the Washingtonian reported.

California Woman Sues Walmart for Racism over Products in Locked Cases

If the black shoppers at that Walmart was not shoplifting those items they would not be locked away.

It is not racism that caused these items to be locked up it is the whitey owes us something mentality that makes these black punks steal.

A California woman is suing Walmart, claiming that the store’s policy to lock certain products subject to a higher rate of shoplifting inside glass cases is racist.

Essie Grundy is taking a Walmart in Perris, California, to court, saying she felt like a second-class citizen because items popular with black customers were locked behind glass doors, CBS Los Angeles reported.

Grundy explained that she originally bought a small comb in another Walmart outside her neighborhood and wanted to get more as gifts, but when she went to the location near her, she found the 50-cent items inside locked glass cases.

“I noticed all of the African American products was locked up under lock and key,” Grundy said at a press conference spearheaded by activist lawyer Gloria Allred.

Grundy claimed she confronted the local Walmart manager and asked to have the lock-and-key policy changed, but the manager refused the request.

The mother of five children said she feels African Americans are being treated like thieves and criminals by having their most sought-after products locked up.

Grundy wants an apology and wants the courts to force Walmart to stop its secure stocking practice.

Walmart said it would review the woman’s complaint but also noted that the shelving policy is in place for a legitimate reason.

“We’re sensitive to this situation and also understand, like other retailers, that some products such as electronics, automotive, cosmetics, and other personal care products are subject to additional security,” Walmart spokesman Charles Crowson said.

“Those determinations are made on a store-by-store basis using data supporting the need for heightened measures.”

In a further public comment, Walmart said:

We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind at Walmart. We serve more than 140 million customers weekly, crossing all demographics, and are focused on meeting their needs while providing the best shopping experience at each store. We’re sensitive to this situation and also understand, like other retailers, that some products such as electronics, automotive, cosmetics, and other personal care products are subject to additional security. Those determinations are made on a store-by-store basis using data supporting the need for the heightened measures. While we’ve yet to review a complaint, we take this situation seriously and look forward to addressing it with the court.

The lawsuit inspired a string of posts on social media by blacks outraged by the shelving policy:

‘The Fight Is On!’: Maxine Waters Continues ‘Fight’ to ‘Impeach 45,’ Says Mike Pence Is Next

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

Maxine Waters mental instability was steadily worsened since Donald Trump was elected president.

During a Democratic cook-off in South Carolina Thursday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) hyped up her resistance efforts against President Donald Trump and called to “impeach 45” as she vowed to keep “the fight” against the commander in chief on.

“I say impeach 45. Impeach 45. Impeach 45. Impeach 45,” Waters chanted while speaking at the South Carolina’s Orangeburg County Democrats’ 19th annual cook-off. “Forty-five, this message goes out from Orangeburg as it goes out from so many places in this country. We did not ask for a fight with you. We did not ask you to be president. We do not know how you made it. But now that you’re there and you don’t understand that you don’t belong there, and we don’t intend for you to stay there, the fight is on! The fight is on!”

Waters has seemingly made Trump’s highly-unlikely impeachment her focus after 25-plus years in public office.

The T and D noted that local Democratic leaders offered “a variety of delicious food” at the annual cook-off including fish and chips, whole hog barbecue, shrimp and grits, fried chicken, stone stew, and shrimp jambalaya. Tickets to the event were reportedly $25 a person.

Earlier in her talk, Waters said, “Those four soldiers who were killed in Niger are to be respected. And he did not do that,” a nod to President Trump’s phone call with the Gold Star widow of Sgt. La David Johnson. “Frederica led the fight and we are demanding, we are demanding an apology,” she said referring to little-known Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) who said she became a “rockstar” after listening in on, and complaining about, Trump’s phone call with Johnson where he called to extend his condolences.

“We’re demanding an apology,” Waters said. “General [John] Kelly had a great reputation before he went to the White House. Everybody who goes there gets contaminated. And so he stood up for the president, he lied for the president, and he now doesn’t have the credibility that a four-star general should have,” she claimed.

Waters suggested the Democrats would win back the Senate in the next election cycle and said she would make sure Trump would be impeached by 2018, and that her party would make sure Vice President Mike Pence — the next in line after Trump — would be impeached in 2020.

“If Pence, the vice president, ends up as the president, we’ll get him in 2020,” Waters declared.

Last month, Waters suggested Breitbart News and other people were seeking her demiseand falsely lumped the news organization into the white nationalist camp. “I think we should focus on domestic terrorism also. So I would like to ask again, given all that you have said about how difficult it is and about privacy concerns, do you have any thoughts about what can we do to begin to deal with the KKK, the white nationalists, the extremists, the alt-right?” Waters said. “They’re on the Internet; they’re Breitbart. If you look at the YouTube, you see how much they want to kill me and others. What can we do?”

 

Jerry Brown Warns California Republicans Not to Vote for Tax Reform

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

My response if I was a California Republican would be screw you Moonbeam Brown.

California Gov. Jerry Brown warned fourteen Republicans in the state’s congressional delegation Friday that it would be “morally” wrong for them to support President Donald Trump’s tax reform plan.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Brown joined New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and blasted the California GOP contingent for “slavish adherence to the Republican leadership.” The Associated Press added that Brown said they were “like a herd of sheep” for Trump.

Brown is primarily concerned with Trump’s proposed repeal of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction, which would provide $1.8 trillion in revenue that could be used to grant tax cuts in other areas.

Wealthier taxpayers in high-tax states, which tend to be governed by Democrats, use the SALT deduction to lower their overall federal tax liability. As a result, state lawmakers and local officials who raise taxes to fund additional spending are somewhat insulated from the political consequences of doing so, since voters can shift the burden of higher taxes to federal taxpayers elsewhere.

Critics of the SALT deduction — including some California Republicans — point out that it forces taxpayers in more fiscally conservative states to subsidize California’s profligacy.

On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warned California Republicans in the U.S. House not to pass the Senate’s version of the new federal budget, which paves the way for tax reform. All fourteen of them, however, ignored Pelosi’s warning and voted for the budget anyway. It passed 216-212 — a razor-thin margin, and one that could have been reversed if just three California Republicans had voted the other way.

Democrats are currently targeting at least seven California Republicans for defeat in the 2018 midterm elections, as they hold U.S. House seats in districts that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

On the conference call, Brown also accused Trump of “using a handful of states to finance the tax cuts for their states” — a description that could apply just as easily to the SALT deduction itself, which favors liberal “blue” states.

Black Lives Matter Suggests NRA Campaign for Truth Incites ‘Gun-Toting Racists’

1 Comment

H/T  Breitbart California.

Playing the race card is getting real stale.

Black Lives Matter activists in Los Angeles are suggesting the series of commercials comprising the NRA’s campaign for truth constitute a “public call” that incites “gun-toting racists.”

According to the Washington Times, LA-based BLM activists released a video saying:

We’re talking about our lives here. When the NRA issues a public call to their constituents inciting violence against people who are constitutionally fighting for their lives, we don’t take that lightly. We know that we are not safe, but we are not scared, either. We will continue to produce media, teach students, march and protest to not only protect the First Amendment as fiercely as the NRA protects the Second [Amendment], but to protect our lives from gun-toting racists.

The video’s narrator uses the language of “us” vs. “them” to mimic the NRA’s description of the left as “them” and the NRA’s explanation of how the left uses “their” media to assassinate the truth. The narrator implies that President Trump is the opposition’s president, elected as part of a “law and order administration” that allows “them”—meaning police—”to shoot first, to make them ask questions to later, make them scream ‘I thought he had a gun in his hand’ and ‘I feared for my life’ and ‘he matched the description of a suspect.’”

em Rep Sherman: I Filed Articles of Impeachment Against Trump Because He Committed Obstruction of Justice

1 Comment

H/T Breitbart California.

  Representative Brad Sherman (D-CA) is one more of California’s village idiots.    

   

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Representative Brad Sherman (D-CA) defended and explained the articles of impeachment that he, with the co-sponsorship of Representative Al Green (D-TX) introduced against President Trump.

Sherman began by saying he didn’t file the articles in response to Donald Trump Jr.’s emails, but they “further bolster it.”

Sherman said Trump is guilty of “Obstruction of justice, as defined by 1512 (b)(3) of the criminal law of the United States, in two respects. Most simply, he threatened Comey, in order to get Comey to curtail the investigation of Flynn. That’s obstruction of justice, and it lines up perfectly with the code section and with the cases that have defined it. Secondly, he fired Comey, and then said that his reason, or that the effect, was to curtail or thwart the investigation to the general Russia matter. And of course, in the last couple of days, we’ve learned how important that Russia matter was.”

He added that it didn’t matter whether Trump actually hindered the investigation because “Ineffective obstruction of justice is a crime. If you threaten an FBI officer and say, you better not go forward or I’m going to do this or that, and the FBI officer just laughs it off, that’s still obstruction of justice.”

Sherman continued that Trump “said you’d like to keep your job, and I’m telling you, that I want you to drop this investigation.”

He added that Trump didn’t explicitly tie dropping the investigation to Comey keeping his job, but that Trump “knew that Comey wanted to keep his job. Comey knew that he could be fired at any time, and he told Comey to drop the investigation, or to curtail it, or to slow-walk it.” Sherman further stated that if you combine what Trump said on one occasion with what he said on another occasion, it comes out to Trump telling Comey that Comey would like to keep his job and Trump wanted Comey to drop the investigation.

Sherman also said Trump “didn’t even need to have the first conversation. When, for — in order to protect a friend, to protect himself, he instructs the FBI director to drop or curtail an investigation of a close associate like Michael Flynn, that is obstruction of justice.”

Sherman further said that he hopes the articles of impeachment cause an “intervention” inside the White House that causes the president to stop acting incompetently and impulsively.

 

Store Owner Fights Back, Fatally Shoots Two Robbery Suspects, Wounds Third

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbart California.

Business owners are getting tired of thugs stealing from them.

A car audio store owner in Downey, California fought back against three armed robbery suspects Monday, shooting two fatally and wounding the third.

The incident occurred around 8:15 p.m. on Monday.

According to ABC 7, the attempted robbery occurred at First Class Car Audio. Police said they arrived to to find two suspects dead inside the business and the wounded suspect had fled the scene.

The Patch quoted police saying:

Detectives have determined three armed men entered the business and attempted to rob the business owner. Gunfire was exchanged during which the business owner shot all three suspects, two of whom died at the scene. The third suspect sought medical treatment for his gunshot wounds at a local hospital and is receiving medical care. Detectives are still questioning him.

A man near the store — who did not want to be identified — said, “All I heard was gunshots — about nine or 10 gunshots.”

Another witness said, “That’s the store owner trying to protect his business. He got a family and, you know, people trying to take away his business where he work hard for it. That’s not right.”

The business owner was not injured in the exchange of gunfire and police have not released the identities of the two deceased suspects.
