  • Appeals court delivers fatal blow to California city pushing natural gas ban

    01/02/2024 10:28:15 PM PST · by KingofZion · 20 replies ^ | January 2, 2024 | Thomas Catenacci
    A federal appeals court rejected a petition Tuesday to rehear a case related to a natural gas ban proposed by the City of Berkeley, California, which the panel ruled was illegal last year. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ultimately denied Berkeley's petition for rehearing en banc — a motion that received support from the Biden administration, Democratic-led states and environmentalists — after it failed to receive majority support from the court's non-recused active judges. Berkeley filed the motion last year after the court in April that a Berkeley law banning natural gas pipes in new construction...

    The task force charged with creating a reparations program for Black students in the Berkeley school district will meet for an additional six months before presenting its recommendations to the school board in June. Intending to give cash payments to students whose ancestors were enslaved in the United States, Berkeley Unified established the task force in March. If implemented, it may be the first program of its kind in the country. Since April, the 18-member task force has met monthly to set the course for the new reparations program. Its first job is to determine how BUSD should fund reparations;...

    Attacks against University of California, Berkeley, students wearing Israeli flags aren't being investigated as hate crimes, said a graduate student who claimed the students were assaulted because of their Jewish identities. In two incidents, assailants aggressively tried to take Israeli flags from students, shoving and cursing at them in the process, videos reviewed by Fox News show. In one, a crowd gathered around a student draped in an Israeli flag who was struck in the head with a metal water bottle. The videos are part of a lawsuit filed last week by the Brandeis Center — a pro-Israel nonprofit —...

    This video shows a masked Antifa thug using a metal bike lock to smash the head of an innocent Trump supporter at Berkeley, California, in April 2017: awesomely talented amateur sleuth observers at 4chan later identified the thug based on his partially visible face, his clothing, and several other things.Any one of these things by itself is pretty meaningless. But taken together, it is extremely likely that they identified the correct person.For specific details, see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.The police also did their own investigation, and when they searched the person’s house, they found clothing and...

    A senior Hamas terrorist decided he wanted 72 virgins without killing himself. Instead he picked some of the terrorist group’s little human shields for the honor. According to Al Bawabh News, Hamas is trying to hush up a major sex scandal involving young boys in a Gaza mosque. A prominent Hamas member is accused of engaging in sex acts with young boys after enticing them with promises of teaching them Jihad and the Quran. According to the story, he pretended to be teaching the boys martial arts. He evaluated their “performance” and if he felt that they wouldn’t resist,...

    Ever since David Horowitz broke from the radical left back in the 1980s, he has been trying to warn conservatives that they don’t really understand the core principle of the left, and the depths of the left’s power-mad depravity. Conservatives too often think that the Israel-Palestine conflict, or civil rights, crime, income inequality, transgender ideology, climate change, etc, etc., are discrete issues to be argued against the left with reason and facts. To which Horowitz replies: The issue is not the issue—the issue is revolution! (And a key corollary is: the more violent, the better. Hence the approval and celebration...

    This Saturday's game between No. 24 USC and Cal is currently delayed due to a protest taking place on the field. Moments ago, Brandon Huffman of 247Sports shared a photo of people sitting at midfield at California Memorial Stadium. "Just before kickoff at Cal-USC in Berkeley and a protest of some sort is going on at midfield," Huffman wrote. There appears to be at least a dozen people protesting on the field. At this time, it's unclear as to what they're protesting about.

    A pro-Palestine group that has been designated as anti-Semitic by the Anti-Defamation League is planning a 'Day of Resistance' across college campuses in support of the Hamas attacks in Israel that killed 1,200. Students for Justice in Palestine was founded at the University of California at Berkeley in 2001 and counts over 200 chapters across the United States, Canada and New Zealand. While the ADL claims that the group says 'they reject anti-Semitism, they also regularly demonize Jewish students who identify as Zionists or proud supporters of the State of Israel.'

    For months, University of California President Michael V. Drake has been unnerved by a series of security threats at his Berkeley home: Racist graffiti. A smashed window. A break-in. Trespassers who jumped a fence surrounding the property that was erected in March. In one particularly disturbing attack in May, a vandal spray-painted racial slurs and profanity across the front and back of the presidential residence. Drake, the UC system's first Black president in its 155-year history, was not at home. But the attack shocked the UC and Berkeley community, led to an ongoing hate crime investigation by local law enforcement...

When we do faculty hiring, we’re quite conscious that diversity is important to us, and we say diversity is important, it’s fine to say that.”The video was posted by popular...
