    Benny Johnson took to the stage at the convention center in Palm Beach, Florida, before an audience of cheering young Trump supporters in December to lead a session titled “How to Own the Libs.” “I ask myself every day: How do we own the libs?” said Johnson, at the time a reporter for the right-wing Daily Caller. “How do we do it in a way that makes a difference? Because these people deserved to be wrecked.” According to Johnson, the answer to that question is memes. These bits of humor or political propaganda—generally images overlaid with a caption designed to...

    by Sheri Urban A female Mexican-American Trump supporter was assaulted in a U.S. post office for wearing a MAGA hat by a psychotic androgynous liberal suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. A female Trump supporter named Paloma took out her phone and began recording after she was insulted by a ‘tolerant liberal’ inside of a post office in San Diego, California on Saturday. Paloma describes herself as an “American loving activist, born in Mexico,” who came to the US legally when she was 10 years old. The liberal became infuriated when (she?) realized she was being recorded and lunged at the Trump...

    REDDING — One morning four years ago, a recent graduate student who lived in San Diego and had an unusual knack for shooting a bow awoke to a flood of hate messages on her Facebook page. Jen Benedet had launched a program to teach kids how to hunt, and animal rights activists weren’t happy. They accused her of turning children into murderers. On top of trolling her internet accounts, as well as stalking her at home, they started an online petition to “stop Jen the Archer,” thrusting her to the center of an international debate over hunting. “All these things...

    MEXICO CITY — Mexican officials are carrying out the Trump administration’s immigration agenda across broad stretches of the border, undercutting the Mexican government’s promises to defend migrants and support their search for a better life...(snip) ...Officials inside the administration of Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, have called his stance on migrants a strategic decision not to anger President Trump. He doesn’t believe he can change Mr. Trump’s mind, they contend. Furthermore, the officials say, Mr. López Obrador has not wanted to jeopardize other aspects of the deeply interconnected relationship between the two countries, ranging from elaborate regional trading...

    SAN DIEGO—Approximately 90 feet of secondary border wall has been built to replace an old fence in San Diego, California... The new secondary 30-foot-high steel wall will replace a 16-foot stamp-steel mesh fence... Construction began on Feb. 18. It is the fifth border wall section under President Donald Trump’s administration, according to news reports on Feb. 20. The construction project replaces 12.5 miles of existing barrier from the Pacific Ocean to the base of Otay Mountain in San Diego. A new one-and-a-half mile portion of the barrier will be added, making the entire 30-foot wall 14 miles long. The vertical...

    As California's leftist Gov. Gavin Newsom grandstands about suing the Trump administration over its construction of a concrete border wall, Mexico's human smugglers are having a grand old time, ramming through the corrugated junk metal fencing that's there with heavy smuggling vehicles, terrorist-style. Here's the U.S. Customs and Border Protection photo from independent San Diego television news station KUSI, reporting the matter last night...(snip) KUSI, if you recall, was the local San Diego television news station that was just doing its job when CNN asked its top reporter, Dan Plante, a grizzled old newsman who knows border issues like the...

    It’s over. The long offseason of Manny Machado can end after the All-Star infielder agreed to a deal with the Padres on Tuesday. The Post confirmed San Diego will give Machado the biggest free-agent contract in history — if not the biggest deal ever, which belongs to Giancarlo Stanton — meeting his reported 10-year, $300 million ask. This ends the saga that included the Yankees, White Sox and Phillies, all who met with the former Oriole. The Padres, one of baseball’s youngest teams, are an odd fit, yet they must picture the 26-year-old will still be a star when their...

    Hotter summers. Colder winters. Mega-storms and massive droughts. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change paints a grim picture of how global life will change in the 21st century as a result of human-caused climate change. This week, California lawmakers drafted an Assembly Joint Resolution to support the “Green New Deal” to battle global warming now being considered in Congress. Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, is the primary sponsor of AJR 7. Gloria’s AJR 7 cites California’s year-round wildfire season - the Thomas Fire was a record-breaker in 2017, the Mendocino-Complex Fire shattered that record in 2018 - as one example...

    <p>California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday in his “State of the State” address at the California State Capitol in Sacramento that he would abandon the state’s high-speed rail system because it was too expensive.</p> <p>The plan to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles by high-speed rail “would cost too much and, respectfully, would take too long,” he told legislators. He said the state would still build a portion of the system under construction in the rural Central Valley, denying that it would be a “train to nowhere.” He said the state would not send $3.5 billion back to the federal government to be spent by President Donald Trump.</p>

    This looks like an interesting piece of evidence when discussing the wildfires...Or so called wild fires all over the State of California. Basically all you have to do is search a California wildfires map in the last year or so and put the map of the proposed California high speed rail system continually being pushed by the far left government of California. What do you get when placing these images next to each other...Well it just so happens that the California wildfires happen to be all located along the proposed lines of the California high speed rail project.

    The Green New Deal (GND) outline released today by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey calls for a total overhaul of the U.S. transportation system. Specifically, the GND states that over the next decade America must “build out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.”The GND proposal released today came in a couple of different packages. There is an actual resolution which proposes a transportation overhaul “as much as is technologically feasible.” overhauling transportation systems in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector as much as is technologically...

    a report from the Auditor of the State of California on the High Speed Rail Project ... To understand just how damning the HSR audit was, just consider the subtitle: “Flawed Decision Making and Poor Contract Management Have Contributed to Billions in Cost Overruns and Delays in the System’s Construction.” But like many government documents, the audit is couched in bureaucratic language that ordinary citizens may not understand. For that reason, below are the summary points as provided by the state auditor with accompanying translations. Auditor: “Although the Authority has secured and identified funding of over $28 billion that it...

    Jerry Brown did not invent the idea of a high-speed rail system to connect Northern and Southern California. It was voted on by the state Legislature and ratified by voters years before he returned to the governor’s office in 2011. But for the last eight years, as cost estimates have skyrocketed and federal and private sector funding for the project has evaporated, Brown has become high-speed rail’s most persistent defender. Only weeks away from the election to replace him, neither candidate for governor appears to share the depth of Brown’s commitment to a statewide rail system. Fellow Democrat Gavin Newsom...

    Remember that high-speed rail project that was going to bring California’s infrastructure into the 21st century? The last we really heard about it was back in April when an audit was scheduled to take stock of just how far in the hole they were and if it could ever be finished. Of course, that’s been the story of this project from the beginning. One delay after another compounded by flawed budget estimates and construction schedules. Mix in a bit of political incompetence and malfeasance and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.This running boondoggle has been dragging on for ages,...

    With its funding plans clearer, South Florida passenger start-up Brightline is looking west for its next venture into private high speed rail.Brightline on Tuesday said it had acquired XpressWest, a high-speed passenger rail project with rights to develop a federally approved corridor connecting Southern California and Las Vegas. he project would be only the second privately funded intercity passenger rail in the United States after Brightline. No terms were disclosed. “Brightline is changing transportation in our country by connecting heavily trafficked corridors that are too long to drive and too short to fly,” said Wes Edens, co-founder and co-chief executive...

    The California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) surprised local communities on Wednesday by proposing a controversial Burbank-to-Palmdale route featuring above-ground tracks. The Los Angeles Times reported that the proposed 38-mile track alignment will cross the San Gabriel Mountains via a series of at grade sections and five separate tunnels. The bullet train’s original route, offered in support of the SB 1856 bond measure passed by the California Legislature in 2000, proposed to follow the Interstate 5 Freeway and tunnel under the 4,144 ft-Tejon Pass to link Los Angeles and Bakersfield.

    “It’s not a train to nowhere,” Newsom said. “It’s insulting to suggest the Central Valley is nowhere. This is an economic development project, connecting the fastest growing and most dynamic economic regions in the country. That project is achievable and realistic. “The second phase [boring through the Tehachapi Mountains to Los Angeles] is an open-ended question.”
