    Do you remember the Trump rally in San Jose last year when many Trump supporters were attacked by a mob of leftists, seemingly unhindered by police who were there? The people assaulted certainly remember the event and they’ve brought suit against the city for the failure to protect them. The city tried to get the case dismissed, but the judge has decided to allow the suit to continue, in a win for the Trump supporters. According to CBS Local: “We’ve seen video appearing on international local and national media that shows the police standing by as people were getting gruesomely...

    With recent hate-fueled shootings of minorities in Kansas and Washington — and an alarming confrontation closer to home in downtown San Jose — about 75 community members gathered downtown Sunday to urge action in what they called an increasingly hostile post-election atmosphere.

    “I am a friend of the President. I have an appointment.” These were the words a California man said to a U.S. Secret Service officer after jumping a fence and entering restricted White House grounds late Friday night, according to charging documents filed in filed in U.S. District Court. The man, who police identified as 26-year-old Jonathan Tuan-Anh Tran of Milpitas, California, was discovered in the restricted area of the White House when an officer approached him to ask him whether he was a pass-holder, police and court records said. That’s when Tran replied that he did not have a...

    "U.S. Transportation department executive approved grant days before taking job with rail contractor" A top Obama administration executive at the U.S. Department of Transportation approved a $647-million grant for a California rail project in mid-January and less than two weeks later went to work for a Los Angeles-based contractor involved in the project, The Times has learned. The grant provides a significant part of the money required to install a $2-billion electrical power system on the Bay Area’s Caltrain commuter rail system, allowing the rail to retire its diesel locomotives.

    On My Way to Somewhere Else Can't remember what , but looking something up on line earlier today I came cross this article : Costa Rica Street addresses I have been to Costa Rica many times now, having relatives there who are long time residents. My first trip was around 1999, to the Capital, San Jose, a city of population 335,000, in 2016. Remarkably there was not a single street sign or house or business address in the entire city (that I know of.) As can be imagined, this creates a "Twilight Zone" experience for first time visitors.

    Rising water filling up Santa Clara County's Anderson Reservoir, which was 99.3 percent full as of Wednesday, is expected to flow over the dam's spillway as a result of this week's impending storms. Unlike the potentially catastrophic situation with Lake Oroville's emergency spillway, the Anderson Reservoir's operational spillway is not at risk of failure, according to Santa Clara Valley Water District officials. Despite that good news, officials in Santa Clara County are warning residents living along Coyote Creek and near Kelley Park to be on the lookout for potential flooding. Water officials for the past month have been releasing water...

    Hate mail and the defacing of a religious statue. It’s happening at the Catholic Diocese of San Jose. And it started after a meeting with the Muslim community. Somebody chopped off the fingers off the statue of St. Joseph and the left hand off the statue of Jesus outside the office of the diocese. The vandalism happened right after the Martin Luther King holiday in January. That’s the day the bishop of San Jose met with Muslim leaders in a show of solidarity. NBC Bay Area has learned the defacing of the statue outside the diocese was accompanied by hundreds...

    Four McDonald's restaurants in the South Bay are testing out a new sandwich on their menu. It's called the McDonald’s Crab Sandwich. McDonald’s wanted to continue experimenting with local Bay Area flavors just like the garlic fries they introduced back in May. The Crab Sandwich will have snow crab meat on a sliced sourdough bun. When asked why McDonald's is using snow crab and not local Dungeness, McDonald's said: "The McDonald’s sourcing team had to weigh a variety of different factors when they approached how and where they were sourcing crab." The sandwich also comes with celery and seasoned mayo...

    If that was Kanye West's way of announcing his candidacy, it could have gone better. On Thursday night, the 39-year-old rapper arrived late to his San Jose concert. Instead of jumping into his set list, West opted to rant about this year's presidential election. "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump," he told the crowd, who immediately began booing him.

    Vietnam’s government has officially labeled a California-based anti-Communist group a terrorist organization and warned that anyone involved with it will be considered an accomplice in terrorism and will be dealt with in accordance with Vietnamese law.

[…] The group was formed in 1982 by a vice admiral in the former U.S.-backed South Vietnamese government. Viet Tan says it is committed to nonviolent struggle to end Communist rule.

    The diocese of San Jose is saying its LGBT ministry will not "elaborate" on Church teaching on "sexual morality, conscience, and personal sin," while claiming that gay people can't change their sexual orientation. The document "Guidelines for the Catholic LGBT Ministry Council" bears the name of Bp. Patrick J. McGrath and is the guide by which Catholic parishes are to deal with LGBT people. It maintains from the outset that the guidelines "do not presume any particular social or psychological analysis of sexuality in our society, except for a generally accepted premise that individuals do not choose and cannot change...

    San Francisco has the unfortunate honor of appearing in a new propaganda video for the Islamic State released Sunday, no doubt to coincide with the city’s massive Pride celebration, since persecution of LGBT people is a hallmark of deranged fundamentalists. Several alleged terrorists appear on screen to praise Omar Mateen, the Orlando gay nightclub shooter, and Larossi Abballa, the man who attacked a French police officer and his family June 13, the day after the Orlando shooting. The trio reportedly encourages more attacks in the U.S. and Europe, and this is when the footage of San Francisco starts to roll...
