  • California State Senate Leader: ‘Half My Family’ Here Illegally (admits identity theft)

    Breitbart California ^ | Feb. 5, 2017 | Assemblyman Tim Donnelly
    California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions. De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.” He said (at 1:27:34 in the video that follows): … I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security...
  • Second Amendment -- Or Second-Class Citizens?

    In our “blue” states, many politicians have a deep animosity toward private ownership of firearms. (Yes, you also find some like that in “red” states, but they seldom have the political clout to do much damage to our Second Amendment rights.) California is the prime example of a state where the dominant political class abhors guns and does all it can to hamper individuals who own and carry them. A recent action of the state legislature makes that point and has led to a lawsuit that will be heard later this year by the Ninth Circuit. Among the state’s many...

    There is "of course" a place for pro-life Democrats in the Democratic Party, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) told Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet The Press Sunday morning. . . . Pelosi's comments came the same morning that Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said that he felt only people who support the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling can be a part of the Democratic Party.

    Another day passes as radical Islam continues its aggressive expansion across the globe.

Americans are forbidden to enter these communities. (via Twitter)Dear Obama: please admit you have failed the American people. It is because of your “open border” policies that we now are losing valuable real estate in our own country. This is unacceptable.After eight years of Obama, we have literally lost American soil to terrorists....

    Not a single member of Congress who represents the territory on the southwest border said they support President Donald Trump’s request for $1.4 billion to begin construction of his promised wall, according to a Wall Street Journal survey, testing the administration’s ability to reach a deal on government funding next week. Most lawmakers representing the region—both Democrats and Republicans—said they are opposed and many said they have unanswered questions. A few were noncommittal, but not a single member of the House or Senate representing the region expressed support for the funding request. That includes nine members of the House and...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | April 21, 2017 | Cristina Laila
    The Mayor of Bekeley, Jesse Arreguin supports the far-left terrorist organization, BAMN according to his Facebook page. Perhaps this is why the police were told to stand down while ANTIFA threw glass bottles, M-80’s and bricks at Trump supporters in his city. Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of ‘BAMN’ AKA ‘By Any Means Necessary’, a violent organization affiliated with ANTIFA. Is this something that should be acceptable for a sitting Mayor? Below is a screenshot of Jesse Arreguin’s Facebook page. Click here for archive link.

    The one sure thing about politics that this Insurrectionist has learned can be summed up in two words: “things change.” So just like James Carville, who was wrong when in 2009 he wrote a book predicting that Dems would rule for 40 more years, it would be a bad mistake for Republicans to gloat, rest on their laurels, or assume they’ll control both houses of congress for the foreseeable future. That said, the current sorry state of the Democrat party was put into sharp focus by Elijah Cummings on today’s Morning Joe. Asked by Donny Deutsch to mention three “up-and-coming...

  • Suspect in Fresno Killings Shouts Out in First Court Hearing

    04/21/2017 10:03:13 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 47 replies
    The suspect in this week's racially motivated shooting rampage in Fresno entered a courtroom early Friday shouting that natural disasters striking America will increase. Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, then shouted twice during a minute-long hearing: "Let black people go in reparations." He was charged Thursday with killing unarmed security guard Carl Williams at a Motel 6 a week earlier. Authorities say Williams was the first of four killings by Muhammad. Police say he told them that learning he was wanted for the Williams killing spurred him to try to kill as many white people as possible before he was caught....

    FOX Business ^ | April 19, 2017
    MS-13, a group that was started by Central American immigrants in Los Angeles in the 1980s, is known for its ruthless and violent tactics. Most of the founding members were from El Salvador and fled to the U.S. during the country’s civil war that lasted 12 years, from 1980-92. Since then the gang’s membership has ballooned to at least 10,000 members in the United States and more than 30,000 worldwide, according to the FBI and Treasury Department. “[MS-13] is one of the most dangerous and rapidly expanding criminal gangs in the world today,” Philip Holloway, a legal analyst and former...

    Officials at the University of California at Berkeley on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel a speech by conservative firebrand Ann Coulter. The university had announced Wednesday that it was canceling Coulter’s appearance following several political protests in Berkeley that turned violent. But on Thursday, the university said it had found a venue where it could hold the speech on May 2, instead of the original April 27 date. However, a leader of the college Republican group that originally invited Coulter said the university was placing strict conditions on the event, and he said his group intended to reject the...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) told an audience on Tuesday that the United States is the country of undocumented immigrants. Waters was speaking in Los Angeles to the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club about a number of issues, from the federal budget to how to resist President Trump's agenda, according to the group's website. In her speech, Waters discussed young undocumented immigrants often referred to as "dreamers," who are protected from deportation by former President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order. Waters said that the United States is their country. "These are people who have hope. These are people...

    Five days before a rampage that left three men dead, Kori Ali Muhammad shot an unarmed security guard who he felt had insulted him at a Motel 6 when he visited a woman at the hotel, police said. Muhammad shot the guard, 25-year-old Carl Williams, multiple times at close range shortly after 11 p.m., police said — an act that would set off a chain of events leading to Tuesday's mass shooting. Police say Muhammad gave rare and unusual details about his movements and the killings over several hours of questioning following his arrest, even returning with officers to the...

    The Facebook anguish continues. A Medium post investigating declining Facebook reach has set off the most recent alarm bells among publishers. Kurt Gessler, deputy editor for digital news at the Chicago Tribune, posted that since January, the Tribune has seen a significant drop in the reach of its posts on Facebook, despite having grown its fan base. The post sparked a sigh of validation across publishers as others chimed in on social media that they’re seeing similar declines. @kurtgessler This looks somewhat familiar to me as well.
