    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Hey, Californian’s, you’re in luck! The feds are going to audit Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s high speed rail project, and, if the audit is conducted honestly, will likely conclude that it is time to cut off funding for the single biggest boondoggle in American history. Yes, dear readers, it isn’t bad enough that California’s utterly corrupt Democrat political class has already wasted billions of Californians’ dollars on this high-speed rail pipe dream, they’ve also already wasted $3.5 billion federal dollars, and are planning on wasting...

    Federal immigration agents are escalating efforts to crack down on businesses hiring undocumented workers. New data released Friday morning shows Immigration and Customs Enforcement visited 122 businesses over the past five days, mostly in Southern California. Mike Poindexter is CEO of his family business the Poindexter Nut Company near Fresno, California. He says most Americans don't want these labor-intensive jobs. "We hire people all the time. They show up, they work two days and they leave," Poindexter said. His company is now being audited by ICE. "We've had somewhere between 5 to 10 percent of our workforce quit voluntarily just...

    The Coalinga city council is suing Fresno County to overturn an election decided partly by the sex offenders in a state hospital. Voters rejected a penny sales tax increase by just 37 votes in November. 127 of those 'no' votes came from inside the walls of Coalinga State Hospital, where some of the state's sex offenders are actually legal voters.

    A review of some of the bids to woo Amazon’s HQ2 to other cities and states shows it’s not all about the money. In some cases democracy itself is a bargaining chip. ___ Example: Chicago has offered to let Amazon pocket $1.32 billion in income taxes paid by its own workers. This is truly perverse. Called a personal income-tax diversion, the workers must still pay the full taxes, but instead of the state getting the money to use for schools, roads or whatever, Amazon would get to keep it all instead. “The result is that workers are, in effect, paying...

    FRESNO, Calif. — The police responded to a call about a loud party on East San Ramon Avenue, but it wasn’t just any party: A sheep was reportedly being slaughtered in a backyard. “Muslim refugees were unaware that slaughtering sheep is not allowed in the city,” the police wrote afterward in their report, which also stated that those involved “were advised to clean up the blood and mess” and warned that in the future “they could be cited.” The animal, actually a goat, was killed by a Syrian refugee who later skinned, roasted and shared it with his Syrian neighbors...

    Amazon.com today announced plans to open a fulfillment center in Fresno that will employ up to 2,500 people. The 855,000 square-foot facility will be located in a burgeoning business zone at Orange and Central avenues — about 1,000 acres that is being primed for e-commerce and data center jobs, said Mayor Lee Brand in an interview.

    The Los Angeles Times reported that last week, a gunman by the name of Kori Ali Muhammad "stalked the streets of Fresno, fatally shooting three white men outside the Catholic Charities building with a .357 revolver."  Muhammad, a self-proclaimed "black soldier" with a belief that there is "a war going on between blacks and whites" who refers to white people as "devils" in anti-white tirades on social media, allegedly shouted "Allahu akbar" just prior to surrendering to police.   In spite of some peculiar evidence suggesting otherwise in the above-mentioned facts, the media and authorities almost immediately dismissed Islam as...

    Try as they might, this time the left wing media failed to bury the story of a black criminal murdering white people because they are white. The shooting in Fresno California by terrorist Kori Ali Muhammad was one of the worst in the state's history and so violent and bloody that there was no way to bury it. Often the media will bury a story about a minority attacking white people such as the case with the Knoxville Massacre. Often covering up the criminal's race and beliefs. This time they just couldn't do it and they failed bury the fact ...
  • Suspect in Fresno Killings Shouts Out in First Court Hearing

    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....

    Hate crimes profiteer Brian Levin-- The only way to fix hate crime laws is to repeal them and return to the proper legal standard of equal justice for all Immediately after black gunman Kori Ali Muhammad (a.k.a. Kori MacSun McWallace) killed three white men in Fresno, California on Tuesday (he reportedly killed another man last week), the “hate crimes expert” machine sprang to action, granting interviews and spinning facts. This was an anti-white hate crime, they did admit. It would be difficult to do otherwise, given the killer’s digital trail of anti-white declarations, but they’ve managed to deny politically inconvenient...
