    No thanks to Kamala Harris. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Most bakeries kill people with fattening sugary sweets. Your Black Muslim Bakery was a health food bakery with no sugar, fats or food coloring according to the guidance of the Koran. It had other ways of killing people. Since Your Black Muslim Bakery opened in the sixties it has not only racked up a bigger body count than most bakeries, but could give a decent Mexican cartel a run for its...
  • A's clinch first AL West title since 2013 after Astros lose to Mariners

    It took longer than they had hoped, but the A’s officially clinched their first AL West title since 2013 when the Houston Astros lost to the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park on Monday night. I The A’s (33-20) will head to the playoffs with a different, yet familiar feel. The expanded playoff format should benefit the A's, who haven't been able to get past the single-elimination Wild Card game. This year, they will play in the best-of-three Wild Card round at the Oakland Coliseum. If the A's are able to advance out of the Wild Card round, they will enter...

    On February 26, 2018, Black Lives Matter cofounder Alicia Garza launched the Black Futures Fund, which discloses on its donations page that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association”. The CPA, active in areas such as San Francisco and Boston, has long and deep ties to Chinese Maoist activity in the United States. Cofounder and board chair emeritus Pam Tau Lee was active during her student days at Cal State Hayward and Berkeley with the I Wor Kuen, a Chinese Maoist counterpart of the Black Panthers which merged with the Red Guard Party, a...
  • Next Oakland top cop must meet a lot of criteria

    09/02/2020 11:03:11 PM PDT · by KJC1 · 16 replies ^ | 09-02-2020 | Henry Lee
    OAKLAND, Calif. - Being the Oakland police chief is hard enough as it is. But the job posting for the city's next top cop is not for the weak. "If they are scared off, they shouldn't apply," said civil rights attorney Jim Chanin with a chuckle. It's no laughing matter. Six months after Chief Anne Kirkpatrick was fired, the Oakland Police Commission has released its wish list for the ideal leader. Among the requirements, the next chief must be able to "embrace guardianship, rather than a warrior mindset," promote de-escalation and disengagement tactics and "eradicate the department’s role in racial...

    The Federalist Papers ^ | August 28, 2020 | C. Douglas Golden
    Oakland, California, has experienced intermittent unrest these past few weeks, which was likely the reason why it was included in a list of jurisdictions where the president said he might be sending federal law enforcement. “We’re going to have more federal law enforcement — that I can tell you,” President Donald Trump said Monday. “We’re not going to let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit and Baltimore and all of these [cities] — Oakland is a mess. We’re not going to let this happen in our country. All run by liberal Democrats.” The liberal Democrat running Oakland —...
  • California Lawmakers Want a Wealth Tax to Soak the Rich for Living There. Also, for Leaving. The proposed tax would apply to not just wealthy residents, but anyone who is wealthy who has lived in the state for the last 10 years

    Reason ^ | August 18, 2020 | Scott Shackford
    A pack of Democratic lawmakers in California are proposing a wealth tax for the state's richest citizens, forcing them to pay more essentially just for owning a lot of stuff. They also, amazingly, want the tax to follow Californians who flee the state in response, attempting to make them continue paying taxes on wealth that's not even in the state. Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D–Oakland) is blunt about his reasons for introducing the California Wealth Tax (A.B. 2088). Rich people have money. He wants more of it to pay for and expand state services. And that's it. "The California Wealth Tax...

    Tribune-Review (Suburban Pittsburgh) ^ | 17 August 2020 | Mary Ann Thomaas
    Dressed in black and carrying signs like “Defund the Police, Peduto is a coward,” about 150 protesters marched to Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto’s home Sunday after rallying in Mellon Park in Point Breeze. Protesters were outraged by a “low-visibility arrest” of a protester in Oakland on Saturday during a Black Lives Matter protest. The arrest of 24-year-old Matthew Cartier came several hours into the protest in Oakland. Social media video shows police officers, not in uniform, emerge from an unmarked van and pull Cartier inside. Pittsburgh police Cmdr. Ed Trapp said that Cartier was blocking an intersection unnecessarily, stepping in...

    Well, that didn’t take long. A non-White American citizen born right here in the United States has gotten a spot on the Democratic presidential ticket, and the birthers have come scurrying out from whatever rock they have been living under since Barack Obama left office. Within hours of former vice president Joe Biden’s announcement Wednesday of his history-making running mate, once-reputable Newsweek posted a story posing “Some Questions for Kamala Harris About Eligibility.” The author, John Eastman, a conservative law professor, wrote that “some” are “questioning” whether Harris might be “constitutionally ineligible” to be vice president because, should she have...

    It’s been scrawled across the pavement in front of government buildings in bright yellow paint, etched into cardboard signs and poster boards as a rallying cry during protests and addressed as a possibility in countless city council meetings. “Defund the police.” While cities across the country continue to reel in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd, some city officials, politicians and activists are taking action, working on measures aimed to divert funding away from what they view as bloated police budgets, and toward community-based organizations. The objective, commonly summed up with the controversial phrase, has both ardent...

    Police are investigating an act of vandalism at Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's house.

    Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's home was vandalized early Tuesday with messages spray painted on the sidewalk, driveway and garage. About a dozen people wearing masks drove up to the mayor's home, started yelling and lit off fireworks around 2 a.m., neighbors said. "There was a real thick layer of smoke and a lot of noise," neighbor Desiree Alexander said. Police are investigating the incident. Justin Berton, a spokesperson for Schaaf, provided the following statement: “An attack at the home of a publicly elected official does not advance democracy. Around 2 a.m. vandals shot projectiles at the Mayor’s home, set off...

    President Donald Trump on Monday said he's considering sending federal law enforcement to other major cities to counter unrest after controversially deploying federal agents to respond to demonstrations against racism and police brutality in Portland, Oregon. "In Portland they've done a fantastic job," Trump said of the federal agents sent to the Oregon city. Trump described the protesters as anarchists who "hate" the U.S. and signaling he might send federal troops to cities like Chicago, New York, Detroit, Baltimore, and Oakland...

    A group of “progressives” representing a large proportion of delegates won by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-CA) in California has signed a letter to presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden urging that he pick a running mate from a short list of candidates that does to include local Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). Instead, they say, he should choose Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), or former Sanders campaign spokesperson Nina Turner, a former Ohio state legislator. The San Francisco Chronicle reports: California Sen. Kamala Harris is widely believed to be on Joe Biden’s short list for vice president,...

    Utah congressional Republican candidate Burgess Owens told Breitbart News Saturday that America will see a “true renaissance” with President Donald Trump re-elected for a second term and a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. Owens - a former Oakland Raiders safety and Super Bowl champion - recently won Utah’s fourth congressional district primary. The black conservative hopes to unseat freshman swing district Democrat Rep. Ben McAdams. Owens said that, ahead of the 2020 November elections, that conservatives are fighting for the “soul” of the nation. “At stake right now, we are fighting for the heart and soul of our...

    Three events last week showed that Democrats do not want a mere transfer of power if they win the November election: they intend to revolutionize our entire system of government. The first happened Wednesday, when Democrats blocked the Senate from considering a bill on police reform by Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). Scott, who is African American, has been working on the issue for years. He had the full support of the rest of the Republican caucus. He also agreed to consider whatever amendments Democrats offered. They still used the filibuster to block the bill from even being debated. The episode...
  • Oakland school board abolishes its police force with unanimous vote

    Oakland's school board voted unanimously Wednesday evening to abolish the school district police force by January, adopting the "George Floyd Resolution to Eliminate the Oakland Schools Police Department." Citing the disproportionate arrests of Black students by Oakland's school police, as well as the district's "obligation to promote the healthy development of each one of its students" and the many alternative ways to handle discipline inside schools, the board directed the superintendent to take steps required to eliminate the department. From the 2015-2016 school year through 2019-2020, Black students have accounted for 73 percent of arrests in city schools but just...
