    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...

    “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.

    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...

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...

As reported by the Associated Press, protesters clashed with Donald Trump supporters outside of the San Jose Convention Center. Eggs were thrown at several of Trump’s foot soldiers by protesters. There were also reports of physical altercations between the two camps. Right-wing websites such as Fox News, Breitbart and others are sounding cries of alarm and panic over the San Jose protests. Such shrill voices will only become louder and more hysterical as...

Gutierrez, who was first elected to Congress in 1993, brought his wife, Soraida Gutierrez, onto his campaign’s payroll six years ago to act as his office manager, treasurer, and fundraiser. Soraida Gutierrez was a registered lobbyist in the state of Illinois from 2003 to 2009 before joining Gutierrez for Congress.

    Mayor Sam Liccardo has called South Hall, the city convention center’s oversized blue-striped tent in the heart of downtown, a “dog.” Liccardo also is a loyal Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter. When Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump came to town for a campaign rally, did that factor into the city offering up the eyesore to Trump? That doesn’t appear to be the case. Dave Costain, chief operating officer of Team San Jose, the nonprofit that runs the city-owned McEnery Convention Center, was reluctant to discuss the event booking, citing a confidentiality agreement. But he eventually offered this: “South Hall was...

    The Donald Trump supporter who was egged in the face by protesters at a San Jose rally says she was only defending herself at the time, but some question whether she may have antagonized them with an obscene gesture. Rachel Casey denies that claim and told Inside Edition: “They started it with me. I stood up for myself like any other American would.” [...] Casey said the Trump campaign has contacted her, asking if she would be willing to join the GOP frontrunner onstage at future rallies. She said yes. “To be a victim of eggs and tomatoes, thank God...

    No one exposes the real political danger behind hidden ideological alignments as good as Donald Trump. The beating of the Trump supporters in San Jose last night, and the responses, highlight a case in point. What do Nikki Haley, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, and Brad Thor have in common? They are all on the same page blaming Donald Trump for not accepting the physical beatings that come with expressions of free speech and challenging the orthodoxy of their political views. Each of these voices in their own way telling Trump, and by extension his supporters,...

    The Trump hating “Mexican” judge once stressed his Mexican heritage as being essential to relationship he built with Mexican government, saluted his own “immigrant” origins, and repeatedly worked with anti-white activist group La Raza. Judge Gonzalo Curiel even awarded scholarships to illegal immigrants in San Diego in 2014. >snip< While nearly all of the scholarship winners were born in another country Ricardo Elorza bragged about his accomplishments as an illegal. Mr. Elorza immigration to the United States when he was 11 years old. In college, he led worships at high schools, non-profit organizations, colleges and parks where he talked about...

    MIAMI – Shortly after Ted Cruz and John Kasich abandoned the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Denise Galvez found herself in a conundrum. The Cuban-American public relations guru had voted for Sen. Marco Rubio in the March Florida primary that he lost by double digits to the eventual nominee, Donald Trump. “I have known Rubio for a long time,” Galvez said. “I thought he was the best candidate.” She could have either sat out the general election, temporarily switch her allegiance to the Democrats, vote for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, or cast her ballot for Trump, a candidate who...

    Before getting into the racially-challenged Judge Curiel, here is a brief history of La Raza for those who are, yet, unfamiliar with the organization. I started writing about La Raza (and MEChA) in 2006. Both of these are virulent racist anti-white organizations that want to have US land ceded to Mexico, will affect riots and all manner of violence to do so and have gotten a pass from the current administration. Instead, Obama appointed former Head of La Raza Cecilia Munoz to 2 positions in his White House...that of Director of Intergovernmental Affairs and the position she currently maintains as...

    Donald J. Trump has some advice for panicked Republicans in Washington who are melting down over his most incendiary statements: Man up. “Politicians are so politically correct anymore, they can’t breathe,”Mr. Trump said in an interview Tuesday afternoon as fellow Republicans forcefully protested his ethnically charged criticism of a federal judge overseeing a lawsuit against the defunct Trump University. “The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine,” he said during an interlude in a day of exceptional stress in the Trump campaign. “It is out of control. It is gridlock with their...

    A Washington D.C. law professor has given credence to Donald Trump’s charge that U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel has a conflict of interest in a court case involving the likely Republican presidential nominee, saying the judge’s affiliation with a group that advocated for illegal immigrants creates “an appearance of impropriety.” Mr. Curiel’s membership and active role in the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, whether or not it creates an actual bias, is enough to disqualify him from presiding over the case, said Victor Williams, a professor at Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law. “The standard isn’t that one...
