  • California to commute sentences for felons releasing 10,000

    07/09/2020 2:08:19 PM PDT · by MeganC · 35 replies
    A friend of mine who works for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) tells me they're going to commute sentences for felons with the intent to release up to 10,000 criminals. Felons with up to twelve years left in their sentences will have the balance reduced to six months. If true this is a very good time to get the heck out of California. NOTE: I am posting this in Bloggers and Personal as I cannot find anything to confirm this just yet. I still think this needs to get out.
  • Pelosi Shrugs Off Mob Destruction in Baltimore: ‘People Will Do What They Do’

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday expressed indifference about mobs tearing down statues of historical figures across the country. "People will do what they do," Pelosi said when asked about Baltimore's statue of Christopher Columbus being destroyed by a mob. "I don't even have my grandmother's earrings." She added that heroic figures such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln would "want us to be talking about the future." Baltimore police did nothing to stop vandals from dragging the statue down from its perch in Little Italy and throwing it piecemeal into the harbor on...

    Jason Whitlock & Tucker Carlson On BLM Goals & NFL Playing "Black National Anthem" Before Games “There’s no way you can do any homework on Black Lives Matter and not see that it’s a Marxist political organization. It’s not about black death. It’s not about black men,” Whitlock told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night during a conversation about reports that the National Football League plans to play a “black national anthem” before games in the upcoming season. “It is a political move. It’s a communist political move. … I’ve seen many of these guys, they claim they’re in...

    In today’s world you can burn down a church, tear down an abolitionist statue, or pour fake blood on the portrait of a founding father, and you’ll be praised. But don’t dare defend your family from a violent mob threatening to kill you, your wife, and your children—that would be wrong. Recently, in St. Louis, Missouri, a married couple successfully defended their home with a rifle and a pistol against a BLM mob allegedly endangering their lives. For this, the city’s lead prosecutor is attempting to press charges against them. The whole episode is perfectly symbolic of the chaos in...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday warned Americans that the Chinese government’s theft of American information is taking place on so large a scale, suspected incidents make up nearly half of his bureau’s counterintelligence cases. Speaking at an event hosted by the Hudson Institute in Washington, Wray said that Chinese thefts amount to “one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history,” and that the American people are the victims.

    NEWBERG, OR (KPTV) - Two drivers in separate stolen vehicles were arrested following a crash in Newberg over the weekend. On Sunday morning, officers responded to a report of a suspect that had just stolen a person's Toyota Land Cruiser. The stolen vehicle was located minutes later as it went through town, according to police. The suspect attempted to elude police through downtown Newberg, then crashed into an occupied Buick Regal near East Franklin and College Street. The driver in the Toyota, identified as Randy Lee Cooper, 27, of Portland, was arrested for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempting...

    Documents show Hunter Biden still controls a stake in a Chinese investment firm despite his promise to resign from the company’s board and a pledge from his father Joe Biden that no one in the family will have foreign business entanglements if he is elected in November. The troubled son of Joe Biden, a former vice president who is now the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, holds a 10% equity stake in the Chinese government-linked Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company, according to Chinese business records first reported by the Daily Caller. Through his lawyer, Hunter had...

    A bipartisan bill in the Senate offers the opportunity for some improvement on the criminal justice front... Amid growing concerns over racial inequality in the criminal justice system, “civil asset forfeiture” is facing renewed scrutiny. On June 25, Sens. Rand Paul, Angus King, Mike Crapo, and Mike Lee reintroduced their bill, the “Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration Act,” to limit civil asset forfeiture and restore due process rights. Through civil asset forfeiture, federal and state-level law enforcement can seize private property they merely suspect is related to some criminal activity. Examples of seized property include cash, vehicles, and even homes. No...

    Many were unhappy when One Angry Gamer began cataloging every celebrity and corporation that sold out the United States to appear virtuous. People were unhappy because they wanted the ability to quietly pretend they had never done so in the first place. Companies didn’t want people to be able to navigate a simple list to see if they were promoting a very unpopular and hate-filled ideology. In only a few short weeks, Black Lives Matter has shown to everyone in the West their true colors. Making in the process, the Traitors of America List more vital than it ever was....

    It was a troubled time in history. New York City was a mess. The streets of the Big Apple were plagued with crime, and folks felt anxious and downhearted. Then along came Rudy Giuliani. He had made a run for mayor in 1989, but it wasn’t his time. After having lost that election, he stepped up a few short years later for a 1993 electoral re-match with then-New York City Mayor David Dinkins. Law and order was the big issue on voters’ minds. This time Rudy would take the trophy. He became New York City’s mayor and went on to...

    While I realize these stories may be getting repetitive, it’s not just Chicago that’s seeing a prolonged increase in shootings and gun crimes. After decades of success in tamping down gun violence, New York City is again registering alarming numbers of killings and serious injuries. Granted, it wasn’t quite as bad as the Windy City (which is rather impressive considering how much bigger New York is) but Gotham still managed to rack up at least nine murders among more than 40 shootings just on Saturday night. And all of this was taking place only days after the Mayor and...

    A July 2 article began as follows: “A 25-year-old Arlington Heights man is accused of aggravated kidnapping and sexual abuse, among other charges, according to the Arlington Heights Police Department.” In journalism, the leading paragraph is known as the “lede” - with its own distinctive spelling, perhaps to signify how important it is to the process of newswriting. The rule is that it summarizes the most important elements of the article, because, as writers hate to admit but know all too well, not all readers will read the whole thing.

    Two bullet-ridden bodies lay sprawled on bloodstained concrete steps. Alongside, relatives of the victims are wailing and collapse to the ground. In another part of the city, a gang of youths use spray paint to disable security cameras before robbing a corner store. Later, video footage captures police officers sitting helplessly in their patrol car as a baying crowd hurls glass bottles at them. This is lawless New York – a city that was once America’s glittering crown jewel but which risks descending into mob rule. Murder figures have skyrocketed and a combination of the coronavirus pandemic, Black Lives Matter...

    I always thought I would retire in New York City. I grew up there. In the 1950s it was a pretty great place. It’s hard to believe now that my friends and I, eight years old or so, would shoot up the Jerome-Woodlawn line to the Bronx by ourselves and sit in the bleachers to watch the beloved Yankees, debating who was better, Mickey Mantle or Willie Mays, until it was too late to be home for dinner. Nowadays, no middle-class parent, or any parent if they have their head screwed on even faintly right, would even consider such a...

  • Left-Wing CHOP Zone Responsible For 525% Spike In Seattle Crime: “Summer of love” turns into a nightmare

    After characterizing the infamous CHOP area of downtown Seattle as a “summer of love,” Mayor Jenny Durkan was eventually forced to acknowledge that the failed communist experiment was responsible for a whopping 525 per cent spike in crime. As we highlighted yesterday, following weeks of violence and chaos, CHOP was finally dismantled by Seattle police, but only after occupiers marched on Mayor Durkan’s 5,000 sqft., $7.6 million house. For almost the entirety of June, the area was plagued with fights, bickering, robberies and rapes, with occupiers targeting both outsiders and each other. It has now emerged that compared to the...
