    The man who supplied assault rifles to the terrorists who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., in 2015 was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison on Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California announced. Enrique Marqez Jr., 28, pleaded guilty in 2017 to conspiracy to provide material support and resources to terrorists, and one count of making false statements in connection with the acquisition of firearms. “This defendant was an active member of a conspiracy that planned to inflict death and destruction on innocent people,” First Assistant United States Attorney Tracy Wilkison said in...

    Support for President Donald Trump among Latino voters has jumped eight points in one month in California in one of the most widely-respected polls in the state. The latest Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) poll shows that 57% of likely Latino voters in California support Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden, versus 33% who support President Donald Trump. However, that is a significant shift from September, when 64% said they would vote for Biden and 25% said they would vote for Trump, the Sacramento Bee noted.
  • Code Name ‘Project Hanson’: Insider Documents Reveal How Hunter Biden Associates Helped Chinese Military Contractor Acquire Michigan Dual-Use Manufacturer

    In September 2015, the Obama-Biden administration approved the sale of a strategically sensitive Michigan manufacturer, Henniges Automotive, to a firm connected to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and a Chinese military contractor that was on an American watch list because of its close ties to the People’s Liberation Army. Hunter Biden’s equity fund, backed by the Communist Chinese government, and the Chinese contractor, Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), needed special approval for the deal from the Committee of Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CIFIUS) because Henniges produced technology with potential military use. AVIC entities have been sanctioned by the United States on...

    The decision many have been waiting for has arrived: on Thursday, the California Court of Appeals ruled that Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc. must now classify their drivers in California as employees. This was the final mile in the courts. In 11 days, California voters get to decide their fate. The ballot measure Proposition 22 will be the last stand for app-based rideshare and delivery drivers who wish to remain independent. If it passes, the prop will codify app-based driversÂ’ ability to choose to work as independent contractors with control over where, when, how long and for whom they...

    VIDEO Joe Biden declared that he would terminate the entire oil industry at the last presidential debate. Easily the Mother of All Gaffes. Yet when you check the media spin control on the debate, most never even mention this incredible gaffe by Biden. They are hoping by projecting a FAKE NEWS Alternate Reality of what really happened at the debate will somehow carry Biden over the finish line.

    “We have to make sure — this will sound political but we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election,” Pelosi said at an event at Cornell University’s Institute of Politics & Global Affairs. “We can’t be worrying about well, how long is this going to take? Well, that will take as long as it does. And we will press the case so that in the court of public opinion. People will know what is — is right. But we cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump if we are going to be faithful to...
  • EXC: Is “Peter Henderson” Joe Biden’s E-mail Pseudonym?

    10/23/2020 9:26:09 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 60 replies ^ | October 23, 2020 | Staff Writer
    Hunter Biden’s e-mail account appears to show that his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, used the pseudonym “Peter Henderson” when trading e-mails with his family, the National Pulse can exclusively reveal. While Biden – or “the big guy” – has his real name attached to his private account for some time, it changed around early 2016, going from “Joseph Biden” to “Peter Henderson” in Hunter’s e-mails. It is unclear whether this change was on Hunter’s end (on his devices) or on Joe’s, but Peter Henderson’s e-mails included messages such as “Keep in touch, Love Dad” and shared links –...

  • 350K debit cards for unemployment benefits frozen in California over fraud fears, officials say

    Faced with a deluge of fraudulent unemployment claims, California officials said Thursday that 350,000 of the debit cards they issued containing benefits have been frozen because of suspicious activity, including a high number of claims at a single address. The debit cards frozen by the state Employment Development Department and Bank of America could represent billions of dollars in benefits paid out since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March. “The Department’s top priority is to quickly verify the identity of any claimants in this group that may have been impacted by scammer attacks, while we work to shut down the...

    U.S.A. –-( Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego, who has issued pro-Second Amendment rulings at least twice against California state statutes, was scheduled to hold an evidentiary hearing in another gun rights case Monday morning, and that is eliciting wails from gun prohibition groups. Anti-gun groups are already on the warpath against the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. For example, the Seattle-based Alliance for Gun Responsibility is campaigning to prevent confirmation, calling Judge Barrett “a Second Amendment extremist.” Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego appears to be the newest target of anti-gun...

    New York City has been racing toward losing its position as the “safest big city in America” all year, but it’s got some competition coming into the home stretch. The City of Angels has been running up its own dismal record when it comes to violent crime. While still nowhere near Baltimore levels, Los Angeles has now racked up more killings than it did in all of 2019. And if a way isn’t found to turn things around, they are on pace to see more than 300 murders by the end of the year. It hasn’t been this bad...

The old "wall" that covers large lengths of the border is laughably easy to get over. It consists of barbed wire fencing, held together by fragile-looking wooden posts and Normandy barriers intended to stop illegal vehicle crossings.

    Rarely has our nation seen a judge more competent and qualified to serve on the Supreme Court than Amy Coney Barrett. During her confirmation hearing, she held me in thrall with the magnificence of her mind. Only once before has anyone inspired the thought, "Greatness walks amongst us." His name is Trey Gowdy. In Amy Coney Barrett, I feel the same awe and chills once again. With Amy's confirmation, Lady Justice will no longer peek from underneath her blindfold. No longer will there be a finger surreptitiously pushing down on one side of her Scales of Justice. When Barrett's Senate...

    A federal court in California on Thursday ruled against President Trump's order to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count for apportioning congressional seats, dealing the administration its second court loss over the July executive memorandum. A panel of three judges for the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California ruled that the memo was unconstitutional and violated laws governing the census. "The policy which the Presidential Memorandum attempts to enact has already been rejected by the Constitution, the applicable statutes, and 230 years of history," the panel wrote in a 90-page decision. The order forbids the Commerce...

    California is one of the few states with COVID-19 restrictions still in place for youth sports. It's forced Mission Viejo resident Maihri Thomson McTague, to drive her son, Sean, out of state to compete in soccer tournaments. She drove to Tuscon and then Phoenix this past weekend where her car broke down in the heat. "It's very depressing for him. I see him declining. I see his emotional decline in these kids because they're not getting out and being with their teammates and doing the sport they love to do and are very good at," she said. Orange County officials,...

    When Donald Trump first won the US presidential election four years ago, many around the world were left shaken up for days. A medical journal is now asking whether news of that political event had any immediate health impacts. The answer is yes, there was a noticeable increase in the number of people hospitalized in southern California due to cardiovascular diseases, say researchers from Harvard University and Kaiser Permanente, a health care company in the US. The research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on October 12, found that such stress poses a greater health...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom said the state will independently review the Trump administration's anticipated coronavirus vaccine before approving distribution to its 39 million residents. "Of course we won't take anyone's word for it," Newsom said Monday as he named 11 doctors and scientists to review any rollout of vaccines by the federal government or vaccine developers. It is unclear whether the independent review process will set back the distribution process for New York and California in comparison to other states that may be able to deploy it and potentially slow the spread of COVID-19 at a faster rate.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that he has had a “serious talk” with fellow Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein following last week’s Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. “I’ve had a long and serious talk with Senator Feinstein. That’s all I’m going to say about it right now,” Schumer told reporters at a news conference, The Washington Post reported. Feinstein, the 87-year-old senior senator from California, serves as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the panel before which Barrett appeared.
