The democrats won and now the state is crap

,,,yeah,,,millions of Californians didn’t like Trumpski raising their taxes and screwing them on healthcare!!!

Paul Emery

Bill, you're smarter than that. Cal has lots of red because no one lives there and it's sparsely populated desert and forest land. Modoc County for example. AS I noted even Orange county is Blue now.

Republicans are pathetic in California Come on Todd, go to work and get your party together so at least they can offer some entertaining competition.

Todd Juvinall

I concede that the democrats control California. They ran out the R's and backfilled with the poor, homeless and welfare folks. The R's have adiosed to greener pastures. Now we see the true "great divide" as your democrats have the 1% ( in your terms) paying for the rest. I did my best but the slackers get to vote and they have the most voters now. Good luck!

Paul Emery

How sad for the Repubs. Even Todd, a genetic Republican is giving up the fight. He agreement with me that the R's are leaving giving credence to my Repubs leaving Nevada County assessment.

See Todd, we can actually agree on somethings, the Pubbers leaving. Since you are not going to leave Nevada County I'll make it a point to invite you to cool events since it's going to get a bit lonely for your types that hang on for sentimental reasons.

Looks like a Judge has found a "Constitutional" right for CNN's Jim Acosta to attend the Pressers. WOW! Just like they found abortion rights. Amazing.

Kamel Toes Harris in questioning the Acting ICE boss compared them to the KKK. She is a disgrace. One half of ICE agents are Hispanc and the Border Patrol has many as well. She is a moron.

Well, let’s look at the news.
Hmmm. Scott loses 700 Machine counted votes because someone did not know how to impute the tabulations of votes into the computer, so they missed the deadline and have to recount and recount by hand over and over again, everywhere....after many admonishments from the judge and missing too many deadlines. The Dems wanted to get their hands on the ballots for filling in the blanks anyway. Delay was their plan. Dilution is the solution.

A national guardman got busted for smuggling in illegals. Good money in that racket. Why am I not surprised that it was CA National Guard pussy and he was AWOL? Where do they find these low lives? Maybe he will be found hanging in his cell. Hope so.

What else in the news? Oh, the Maltese Professor is important because it MAY prove “The Russians have dirt on Hillary” was from a “western intelligence agent”, not from a Russian source. Concerns the FISCA warrant app.
You know how Justice and Clapper and Brennan and ALL the popinjays have been saying that it was not JUST the Clinton Campaign/DNC paid for Yellow Snow Dossier, there is other evidence!” Well, if the Maltes Professor testifies like he says he will, that means all that other “exculpatory” evidence was from and originated from our side Come on, they got pics of him with Boris Johnson and all the British intel bigwigs, lol.

The boss who ran the operation on the British side up and quit unexpectedly just as Trump’s Inauguration Day can to pass. Odd. 50 years old, just two years on the job running GCHQ and before that was the GCHQ’s intelligence liaison to the United States. Right as he achieved the pinnacle of his career, he ups and quits. Only 50 years old and has family issues to attend. Boris wrote wonderful things about him, who technically was under Boris’s oversight.

Odd as well on our side of the Pond. The top counterintelligence lawyer in the land, the head of the DOJ-National Security Division, signed the Carter Page warrant and up and quit in Oct, 2016. He was a young man as well, about 54 years old. Former position was Meuller’s chief of staff. Right at the pinnacle of his career he takes a corporate lawyer job.

Dr. Rebane dropped a comment a long time ago that I have held close to me weary heart concerning this whole Russian Collusion Delusion. He said simply, “the British connection.” Makes sense that Trump would not release the FISA warrant app because he stated concerns of “foreign assets” or foreign government concerns. Now Meuller is going after Nigel, ROFLMAO. Anyway.

What else in the news today? Ok, MAGA means Michael Avenatti Got Arrested. Lame. An recycled story from Oct. 18 that the FBI raided the wack job Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s office’s for corruption. Not mismanagement, but corruption. So, what else is new.
Oh, Acosta got his press pass back, temporarily. Wasn’t given due process, still not a 1st Amendment issue. Like lifting a temporary restraining order until the parties come back to court. Yawn.

Guess it is all normal. Nothing to see here, there, Florida, Gloria or anywhere. Oh, it looks like the first Korean-American elected to Congress (R-CA) , after all this time and congratulations, suddenly will be defeated. Odd.

George Rebane

For those uninitiated (PaulE?) in the ways of welfare and entitlement governance, once a state starts paying unproductive gimmes and making life easy for them, it starts a one-way process of attracting ever more of the same kind of people. All who can come from less desirable regions will come. In California we have seen the establishment of 'San Francisco values' in countless communities that formerly were the clean and orderly homes to productive workers who have been displaced to ever more smaller conclaves in the state, if not having emigrated elsewhere. Orange County is another poster child, and a new symbol of pride for the state's progressives.

Elections 2018....outside our Nirvana Zone.

It is highly unlikely that Democrats will succeed in their efforts to steal the elections in Florida and Georgia, so why all the lawsuits and delay tactics? It’s all designed to create a narrative for the future, while at the same time seeking to diminish the legitimacy of the vote if it goes the Republicans’ way. The narrative? The only reason Republicans won was because they suppressed the vote by refusing to accept “thousands” of votes and therefore they are a danger to the democratic process itself. Never mind that there is not a shred of evidence supporting this spurious accusation, and in fact, that Democrats were the ones caught engaging in lawless behavior. The mainstream media will happily “remind” voters come next election how Republicans sought to suppress the vote and the “will of the people” in Florida and Georgia, while conveniently ignoring Democrat shenanigans. Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election have nothing on Democrat schemes to undermine election integrity.

H.R.7115 - 3D Firearms Prohibitions Act
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/7115/text

As an aside, here's a little verbiage.
------------
the term “semiautomatic assault weapon” means—

(A) a semiautomatic rifle or semiautomatic shotgun that has the capacity to accept a detachable ammunition feeding device; or

(B) a semiautomatic pistol that has—

(i) the capacity to accept a detachable ammunition feeding device; and

(ii) any one of the features described in subsection (b); (note: subsection (B) is a small list of rather meaningless features)
-----------------------
So now a Browning BAR is a 'semiautomatic assault weapon'. Good news for the deer I guess. I keep waiting for the Mini-14 people to start getting nervous one of these days.

Another reason they need to cut a deal -

Compounding the instability of Belt and Road – also known as One Belt, One Road (OBOR) – financing is the stress placed on China’s economy by its trade war with the United States. The conflict has gone more poorly for Beijing than anticipated, leaving it with less money to spend on Belt and Road at a crucial moment when developing countries are rethinking their commitment to the project and private investors are backing away.

The prospect of making Third World countries dependent on Chinese engineers to maintain their expensive new trains and power stations is tremendously appealing to the Communist Party but not for the Chinese engineers actually charged with doing the work, or the companies that pay their salaries. Some of the countries where China is pushing huge Belt and Road projects with lousy profit margins offer few business opportunities that would entice CEOs to swallow their losses on infrastructure construction.

Also unappealing for Chinese executives is the prospect of getting charged with “corruption” and “disappearing” into the prison system when the Politburo is displeased with their decisions. The fate of one such executive demonstrated what AEI drily described as “a risk-reward trade-off that most private firms would flee.”

Quotes:

Insight: “The main evil of the present democratic institutions of the united states does not raise, as is often asserted in Europe, from their weakness, but from their irresistible strength. I am not so much alarmed at the excessive liberty which reigns in that country as at the inadequate securities which one finds there against tyranny.” —Alexis De Tocqueville (1805-1859)

Belly laugh of the week: “I have always believed in the presumption of innocence but I know Michael Avenatti is not a fan of that principle. Out of respect for his preferences, I will therefore assume that he is guilty as hell.” —Matt Walsh

Ouch: “Bad news is because he hit a woman, Avenatti probably won’t be President. Good news is he still has an excellent chance of becoming DNC Co-Chair.” —Stephen Miller

For the record: “Last week, Florida voters elected me as their next U.S. Senator and now the ballots have been counted twice. I am incredibly proud and humbled by the opportunity to serve Florida in Washington. Our state needs to move forward.” —Rick Scott

Oh good grief: “If [Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams] had a fair election, she already would have won.” —Hillary Clinton, who believes her own electoral defeat was unfair

Braying Jackass: “I think people are tired of what’s happening. … We cannot have a truculent child president. We need something serious.” —John Kerry (Donald Trump is serious about putting America first. Barack Obama was serious about putting America last.)

A trip through the echo chamber: “Every place I go, people say … ‘Thank you for saving America.’” —House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

And last… “Here’s an idea. Give Acosta back his press pass. Next time (& every time) Acosta grandstands… End the press conference. Immediately. Until Acosta’s journalist colleagues (whom he disrespects by hogging time showboating), peer pressure him into behaving like an adult.” —Liz Wheeler

I’m sure they’re tricked up, because, you know, they like to catch people — 'Gee, you know, was the weather sunny or was it rainy?'

The evil rich white racist Betsy Devos and the new Title IX rules. The sky is falling!

“Interestingly, however, the proposed rules prohibit the accused himself from cross-examining the accuser — instead requiring that questioning come from an “advisor.” While some complain this limits the rights of the accused, as a practical matter advisers (attorneys, for example) are far better equipped to cross-examine witnesses than are undergraduates or young graduate students.

“In addition to mandating cross-examination, the proposed rules grant both parties “equal opportunity to inspect and review evidence obtained as part of the investigation that is directly related to the allegations raised in a formal complaint.”

“The rules also dispense with the single investigator/adjudicator model that allowed universities to place a single person in the position of investigator, prosecutor, and adjudicator. There were no safeguards against bias. Again, this requirement is so basic that it’s simply stunning that it has to be articulated.

“The new proposed rules, by contrast, apply controlling language from the Supreme Court to define sexual harassment as sexual assault, quid pro quo harassment, and “unwelcome conduct on the basis of sex that is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the recipient’s education program or activity.”

We would be remiss to overlook the last sentence on the 2nd link posted above.

“Even on this front, though, the critics of Title IX reform seem to forget that the students who face sexual misconduct adjudication on campus are—as best we can tell—disproportionately men of color and immigrants. Who will speak for them, if not civil liberties organizations?”
—————————————

“In the 2013–14 academic year, 4.2 percent of Colgate's students were black. According to the university's records, in that year black male students were accused of 50 percent of the sexual violations reported to the university, and they made up 40 percent of the students formally adjudicated.

“As best we can tell, Colgate isn't an outlier. Yoffe notes that male students of color are "vastly overrepresented in the cases I've tracked." Harvard University Law Professors Janet Halley and Jeannie Suk, who pay attention to Title IX cases and have written about the lack of due process for accused students, share this impression. I do as well.

“Left-leaning victim advocacy groups must at least be aware that college investigations are racially problematic. But they seldom acknowledge this. In fact, the people behind the major activist film about rape on campuses, The Hunting Ground, claimed the purpose of their movie was to undermine the "dominant white male power" that pervades the sexual assault crisis. But this is nonsense: as Yoffe notes, in at least three of the four sexual misconduct disputes featured in The Hunting Ground, the accused was a student of color.”

re DonB 256pm - In France we see one of the more benign places where socialism is at work taking down a country. Other countries practicing socialism are more advanced in their descent. Progressives want America to catch up.

Any productive debate/discussion of governance in America should always begin with the Left explaining how dozens of cities under liberal Democrat control for decades have also descended into what may charitably be called shithole cities - cities with devastated inner cores and central regions that have induced those who could, to leave for the suburbs. When progressives can explain away how their control of the country will not follow the descent of THEIR cities, then maybe we can start making some progress. Otherwise we continue the empty exercise of talking past each other.

I suppose the first step is to acknowledge the existence of shithole cities.

Turn about is fair play, imagine the socialists reaction if that happened in San Diego with US flags?!?

On Sunday, displeased Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted "Out! Out!" in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc, 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the U.S. border. They accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They also complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an "invasion." And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group.

"We don't want them in Tijuana," protesters shouted.
Juana Rodriguez, a housewife, said the government needs to conduct background checks on the migrants to make sure they don't have criminal records.

A woman who gave her name as Paloma lambasted the migrants, who she said came to Mexico in search of handouts. "Let their government take care of them," she told video reporters covering the protest.

Bill Tozer

Welcome back, Todd.
No, the Mexicans are not White Supremists. The caravan was ok as long as the Central Americans kept moving along. Passing through? Why, by all means. Not moving along is not ok. The Mexican lady is correct. The members of caravan are “ungrateful”.

The Mexicans have pride. National pride. And they know the difference between a demand and a request. Too bad the organizers of the caravans don’t. Short story:

The Niños Héroes (Spanish: [ˈniɲos ˈeɾoes], Boy Heroes), also known as the Heroic Cadets or Boy Soldiers, were six Mexican teenage military cadets. These cadets died defending Mexico City's Chapultepec Castle from invading U.S. forces in the 13 September 1847 Battle of Chapultepec, during the Mexican–American War. According to legend, in an act of bravery, Juan Escutia wrapped the Mexican flag around his body and jumped from the top of the castle in order to keep it from falling into the hands of the Americans.

The Niños Héroes are a key part of Mexico's patriotic folklore, commemorated by a national holiday on September 13.

Trump is a national disgrace. He is even insuting our brave warriors that got to Bin Laden.

"Retired Navy Adm. William McRaven spoke out after Trump falsely called him a “Hillary Clinton backer” and said bin Laden should have been caught sooner.

Retired Navy Adm. William McRaven lashed out at Donald Trump again Sunday, saying his behavior is the “greatest threat to our democracy in my lifetime” after the president criticized McRaven for failing to bring Osama bin Laden to justice sooner.

Trump disdainfully dismissed earlier criticism from McRaven, who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL mission that killed bin Laden, when Chris Wallace questioned him about it in an interview that aired earlier in the day on “Fox News Sunday.”

“Hillary Clinton fan,” Trump snapped, cutting off Wallace. “He’s a Hillary Clinton backer and an Obama-backer, and frankly ... wouldn’t it have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that?”

"In an interview on CNN Sunday, retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling characterized McRaven as an “unbelievable patriot” and a “true servant” of the Constitution.

Asked about Trump’s comments on McRaven, Hertling responded: “Having someone like the president of the United States, a man that holds an office that’s supposed to represent all people and who says he supports the military, to just dismiss this great American hero as a guy who was a Hillary Clinton lover — which is patently not true — is just really disgusting. But it’s just another day in the life of the Trump administration I guess.”

As an aside, given Bin Laden's compound, something else was up in how long the whole thing took. Just to quote a quick line from the font of knowledge, wikipedia:

"Bin Laden was killed within the fortified complex of buildings that was probably built for him,[252] and had reportedly been his home for at least five years.[253][254] The compound was located less than a mile from Pakistan Military Academy and less than 100 kilometers' drive from Pakistan's capital."

In other news, white supremacists hassle the Caravan.

Sweet. A hit, a very palpable hit. Another apologist for the intelligence agencies pops up.

Those Mexican white supremacists are really vocal against the "caravan". I expect Cortez and Pelosi to travel to TJ and protest from the Hai-Lai stadium bar.

Oh boy. Reading Mexican social media and Mexican newspapers is eye opening. They ain’t taking kindly to foreigners crashing their southern border. No one bit. They don’t like the fact that the Hondurans in the caravan are trampling all over brand new clothes generously offered because they don’t have designer labels on them. The caravan members have been insulting the food and hospitality offered and its pissing the Mexicans off. Ingrates. Maybe not here in CA, but in Mexico mariguanos is a very derogative term. Meth heads, potheads, tweeters, and lazy drunks. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my.

“Tijuana's mayor, José Manuel Gastélum, accused migrants in the caravan of being violent, crude, and “mariguanos” (“stoners”) and vowed to conduct an inquiry to decide if the city will continue to welcome them. Gastélum said the city may not have the resources to continue to shelter and support the caravan.”

“In a video clip from the confrontation—seen widely in Tijuana via Facebook—a young man from Honduras threatens to "machine-gun" anti-migrant demonstrators in the crowd.

“Viral videos and memes on social media have fueled much of the sentiment against the migrants.

“In another viral video, a Honduran woman complained to a news crew from Germany about a lunch of refried beans and flour tortillas migrants received at the shelter. "Look at it, it's all refried beans, the sort of thing they'd feed to pigs," she said.

“Several protesters referred to the video as an indication the migrants were ungrateful. There was one sign in the crowd to the effect that Mexicans proudly eat their beans. Groups of protesters in the crowd chanted that Hondurans were "pigs."

You've got a lot of work to do. California is a one party State and are offering pathetic opposition to the Dems. It was a Blue Tidal wave in California. I'm counting on you to be a leader in this.


The election was a total bust for California republicans who now hold only 8 0f 53 House seats. They have a super-majority in the state senate with a vote to spare, meaning they can pass virtually any legislation without Republican help.

Also Democrats won every statewide office, each one by double digits. Not a single Republican collected as much as 39 percent of the vote.

“Sure, after the damage is done -“

That’s nothing. You should see the one Brenda Snipes replaced. That was a real incompetent Dem doozie.

“[Jeb] Bush’s case against Oliphant includes charges that:

- Twenty-four precincts failed to open on time during the 2002 primary, in part, because Oliphant decided to deliver supplies herself. She also failed to notify poll workers on time that Bush had extended voting by two hours.

- Oliphant never counted 268 absentee ballots in the 2002 primary election, even though they had proper postmarks. The ballots were found in a filing cabinet several months later, after state investigators were tipped to their presence during a criminal inquiry.

- Oliphant did such a poor job following state requirements to update voter rolls that 17,000 ballots were returned as undeliverable during a recent mail-in election to 100,000 voters......

Oliphant’s suspension derails a political career that began with work as a civic activist, leading to her 1991 appointment to the Broward School Board. Before Thursday’s action by the governor, the charismatic former model weathered a criminal investigation, a scathing audit and several ethics complaints in just three years in the $128,769-a-year job.

By 9:30 a.m. Thursday, dozens of county employees in the government center had heard the news and strolled by Oliphant’s first-floor office to see what was happening. A county locksmith stood by, waiting to change the locks once Oliphant left. By 11:15, Oliphant was escorted out of the office by deputies.

But the detailed report from the secretary of state’s office left the governor no choice, County Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion said. Eggelletion, a longtime Oliphant supporter, said he lost confidence this fall when she fired top staff members, including her chief financial advisor.

“It’s a bittersweet day,” said Eggelletion, a Democrat. “I don’t think it was an easy decision for the governor. It has not been an easy decision for people like myself and other black officials in the community.”

Civic activist turned school board member? Hmm At least here in Nevada County we voted our activist school board member out and kicked her angry ass to the curb.

Your "Party" was KO'd in the election in California. Get to work and don't be distracted.

I am now a man without a Party Todd. the Libertarians as a Party are a dud. As a philosophy they are vast and varied. Wish I could vote for Nun of the Above. She didn't run this time. What happened Crabb?

Circling back what happened to you're guy Bush who allowed Osama to run free for six years after 9-11? You should commend Obama for doing what Bush couldn't or wouldn't do.

Todd Juvinall

WOW! Paul Emery just makes stuff up. He is a member of a party that does not have ONE elected official in California. At least I do.

Obama would have had the same luck finding Osama as Bush did if it weren't for the doctor. Obama left him in jail in Pakistan. So I would say both Presidents have some answering to do.

Bush defeated the Taliban and Obama let them back in. Bush was did not get the tip from the doctor that Obama did. You really are deranged.

“,,,hey Tozer,,,Jeb Bush appointed Brenda Snipes,,,she's a winner!!”

Yep. Jeb fires one and didn’t stick around to fire her replacement. Low Energy Jeb. What the heck is wrong with heavily Dem Coward County? I think they should not wait until Snipes leaves in Jan.
They should do what Jeb did her predecessor. March into Snipes’s office and bodily remove that ugly old crack First strip her naked, and hang her upside down like Mussolini. Theh let people spit on her and beat her with sticks and force her family members to watch. She should be executed. Florida has the death penalty for criminals like her.
But, noooo. Now she will be rewrded with a pension.

They say at least 6 kids would have survived if Pussy Peterson did not hide under the stairwell as Cruz’s shells were raining down on him and he directed LE to another building. He will get his pension as well. No wonder they want inmates to vote in FL.

Figure you can relate to the above after what you and your co-workers did to our children.
