    Disney has attacked California Governor Newsom for his 'arbitrary' COVID guidelines that will keep Disneyland 'shuttered for the foreseeable future', after the state announced further delays to reopening large theme parks Tuesday. Disneyland Resort's President Ken Potrock blasted state officials in a statement Tuesday saying the reopening guidelines are 'unworkable' and will force 'thousands more people out of work'. The outrage came after the state released protocols for reopening California theme parks Tuesday, revealing it will still be several weeks before Disneyland in Anaheim, California, can start welcoming guests back to the so-called 'Happiest Place on Earth'. Tensions have been...

    Actress Francia Raisa posted a hysterical video from her car on Sunday after allegedly getting “boxed in” by a pro-Trump car parade, seemingly accusing supporters of targeting her because she’s of Mexican descent and then “laughing” at her, apparently from inside their vehicles. “I was just on the 405 and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally and they f***ing boxed me in and they’re pointing at me and laughing at me, saying, ‘haha,” the actress said in hysterics. “And literally, I almost crashed because they wouldn’t let me out. I was trying to go around it, and they...

Here’s part of today’s statement: “The following three scenarios describe possibilities of what could happen from 6 October to 13 October. Only one of these...

    From Wikipedia, Government image Public Domain, cropped and scaled by Dean Weingarten  On 29 September, 2020, the State of California, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and others, filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court in the Northern District of California. The lawsuit is an attempt to force the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to change current federal regulations so as to render illegal much of the current manufacture of firearms by individuals for personal use. The Court is in the Ninth Circuit. It is a fools errand. Practical experience, in numerous countries around the...

    42,000-foot plumes of ash. 143-mph firenadoes. 1,500-degree heat. These wildfires are a new kind of hell on earth, and scientists are racing to learn its rules. On the windy, hot day of July 26, 2018, as record 113-­degree temperatures baked Redding, California, in the northern Sacramento Valley, Eric Knapp toiled in an air-conditioned government office. After work, he planned to meet his wife and 3-year-old daughter, and some family friends, for dinner. Slender and fair-skinned with a gentle smile, Knapp is a research ecologist for the US Forest Service. He was well aware that, three days earlier, in coastal mountains...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill Wednesday that will establish a task force to study and develop proposals for paying reparations to the descendants of enslaved Black people. Assembly Bill 3121 calls for a nine-member body to make recommendations on what type of compensation, if any, should be awarded and who should be eligible. In addition, the group can recommend to the state Legislature how California can offer a formal apology "for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants" and the elimination of state laws that disproportionately...

    Institute for Political Economy ^ | 10 Sept 2020 | Paul Craig Roberts
    Bob Woodward writes that Trump’s Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, and Trump’s Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, spoke together about taking “collective action” to remove President Trump from office. General Mattis said Trump is “dangerous. He’s unfit.” This is the same thing that the Generals and the CIA said about President John F. Kennedy. When Generals and the CIA say that a president is unfit and dangerous, they mean he is dangerous to their budget. By “unfit” they mean he is not a reliable cold warrior who will keep hyping America’s enemies so that money keeps pouring...

    How is it not Armageddon, we mused, staring into the darkened sky. Or the ninth plague. I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom warned the country's leaders that the entire United States will soon mirror the raging wildfires that are working their way through thousands of acres of the state's land. “California, folks, is America fast-forward,” Newsom said. “What we are experiencing right here is coming to a community all across the United States of America unless we get our act together on climate change — unless we disabuse ourselves of all the BS that’s being spewed by a very small group of people that have an ideological reason to advance the cause of a 19th-century framework and solution....

    After years of advocacy work, cultural burning practitioners had a win in Australia when the government of New South Wales, the state hit hardest by last year's catastrophic bushfires, formally accepted a recommendation for an increase in cultural burning as part of their fire management strategy. An official report issued by the New South Wales government explains how Indigenous land practices can improve fire management in the wake of the deadly bushfires. As some of the most damaging wildfires in recent memory have raged through California, in the United States, this cultural burning knowledge is becoming more relevant than ever,...

    Conservatives and fair-minded liberals are alarmed that high schools are drawing up plans to teach the “1619 project,” the New York Times ’ revisionist account of race and the American founding, in history classes. The reality is turning out to be worse. The largest state in the union is poised to become one of the first to mandate ethnic studies for all high-school students, and the model curriculum makes the radical “1619 project” look moderate and balanced. Last year California’s Assembly passed its ethnic-studies bill known as AB 331 by a 63-8 vote. Then the state department of education put...

    On 4 April, 2019, the Honorable Roger T. Benitez issued a stay on his finding the ban on magazines over 10 rounds was unconstitutional under the Second Amendment. The stay was issued pending an appeal to the Ninth Circuit. On 14 August, 2020, the three-judge panel issued their opinion. The three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld Judge Benitez confirming the magazine ban as unconstitutional. It was a split decision, with Judge Lee, appointed by President Trump, and Judge Callahan, appointed by President Bush, agreeing the ban on magazines is unconstitutional; and Judge Lynn, appointed by President Clinton, dissenting.
