If You Didn’t Already Love In-N-Out Burger, Check How They Responded When the Climate Change Gang Showed Up

We’ve been bringing you some of the crazy of the climate change gang, courtesy of Extinction Rebellion.

The group is an international group and we’ve brought you some of their wackiness overseas here and here.

But lest we feel left out, it should be noted that they’ve also been bothering people over here in the United States as well.

In San Francisco, they linked hands and blocked traffic on both sides of the intersection at Gates Avenue near the University of San Francisco. Ironically, their actions were causing more carbon emissions while antagonizing commuters.

A gentleman in scrubs did not take kindly to them preventing him from getting to work. He let them know by ripping their banner out of their hands and tossing it over a fence.

But now In-N-Out Burger has their own entry of having to deal with the climate crazy gang.

As you may know, the owner and heiress of the burger chain, Lynsi Snyder, isn’t shy about saying that her business is influenced by her Christian beliefs, even putting bible verses like John 3:16 on the bottom of the cups.

But they’re also know for their tasty burgers and great service, with a big focus on customer satisfaction.

That’s why they’ve become pretty darn successful, with revenue that should surpass $1 billion this year, according to my colleague Mike Ford. Plus they had an early policy of not opening stores unless they were able to do so debt-free, an idea they still try to get close to, a pretty phenomenal approach. How many businesses can say that?

But that didn’t prevent folks, allegedly from Extinction Rebellion, from targeting their restaurant on the Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, California.

Why protesters were targeting the restaurant is not entirely clear, although climate change folks have made meat one of their targets.

But the employees with that great customer service ethic were having none of that.

And they ushered the protesters out, even picking one up and bodily carrying him outside. Very politely.

That man was none too pleased as he screamed at the employees through a bullhorn.

When the police showed up, that’s when it really didn’t go well for the protesters.

The police were not receptive to their claims and they arrested at least one woman, as the male protesters screamed at them too. The men argued that their female companion was the one who had been assaulted, then accused the police of illegally arresting her and “cruel and unusual punishment.”

Thinking that’s the last time the group will try that at an In-N-Out Burger.

And people loved it.

Apparently It’s “National Period Day” and I’m Not Talking About the Hockey Kind

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x269 Apparently It’s “National Period Day” and I’m Not Talking About the Hockey Kind Sales tax Politics Pink Tax National Period Day media bias Lunatics Liberals leftists Left Wingers Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Crazy Allow Media Exception 2020

Just in case you were questioning whether the left have gone completely insane or not, here’s a story to quell your doubts.

Yesterday was apparently deemed “National Period Day,” where crazed left wingers joined together to protest for menstrual equality and removing taxes on tampons. As you can see, there’s real oppression going on in this country.

Non-profit organization PERIOD launched the inaugural Period Day Saturday to call for menstrual equity. The organization held rallies in every U.S. state to discuss period poverty and demand that menstrual products become more accessible.Menstrual product company Always found in a study that one in five girls in the U.S. have left school early or missed a day of class because they did not have access to period products.

Where to start with this.

How many different “days” can we have at this point? There’s literally some leftist cause almost every single day of the week at this point, plus the month long gay pride celebrations. Even if one thinks this is a worthy cause, is it really worth of it’s on designated day? Come on.

Also, note ridiculous claims like this.

In January, Reuters found that nearly two-thirds of low-income women in St. Louis could not afford menstrual hygiene products, including tampons or pads. Nearly half of the survey group said there are many times they cannot afford both food and period products at the same time. Many resort to using cloth, rags, diapers or other forms of paper products instead.

Thirty-five states have not deemed period products as essential items, subjecting menstrual products to a sales tax that many refer to as the “pink tax.” If the products were classified as hygiene products — as Rogaine and Viagra are — they would be eligible to be tax-free. PERIOD seeks to eliminate the pink tax as well as make products free and available in schools, shelters and prisons.

A box of tampons, of which is only needed to be bought every few months costs about $6. The tax on that might add up to around $0.50 and over the course of the year, you are looking at around $3 in extra costs due to taxes. Does anyone really believe that 2/3rds of low income woman don’t have $6 every two months to buy tampons? Or that $3 a year in sales taxes is what is making or breaking women? This is pure, nonsensical garbage. Even the lowest income among us typically are not going to be helped by wiping away $3 in taxes a year. It’s a total non issue. You can look around on the ground a few hours for one day a year and find that much in lost change.

There are real problems in this world. Real persecution, real oppression, and real suffering. How shallow does one’s life have to be to make your cause fighting the “pink tax?” This is first world problems on steroids and it’s just as laughable that CBS reports this as if it’s not lunacy.

Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi and the New York Times; ‘A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag’

Westlake Legal Group AP_080722043710-620x306 Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi and the New York Times; ‘A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag’ The New York Times Nancy Pelosi Media Liberal Elitism Justin Amash Impeachment of President Trump Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption elections donald trump democrats corruption Congress Barack Obama Allow Media Exception adam schiff Abuse of Power 2020

 

When faced with criticism from Republicans over her undeniably politically driven, secretive, and unjust impeachment inquiry, Nancy Pelosi called for backup from the media which her party controls. This was a big job, so she enlisted the New York Times. And they did not disappoint.

In one of their most partisan, farfetched assaults on Republicans to date, the “paper of record” summoned the age old adage “Accuse your opponent of that which you are guilty.” It sounds like one of Saul Alinsky’s rules, but it dates back to at least World War II.

In an op-ed published on Friday entitled “The Crisis of the Republican Party: The G.O.P. will not be able to postpone a reckoning on Donald Trump’s presidency for much longer,” the editorial board excoriated Republicans for continuing to support President Trump. The cover photo shows the “Peace Statue” which is located near the U.S. Capitol and depicts “Grief weeping on the shoulder of History.”

The piece opens by comparing Republicans of today with those who allowed Sen. Joe McCarthy to continue his campaign against communism through their silence in the 1950s. The Times’ editors write:

The Republican Party is again confronting a crisis of conscience, one that has been gathering force ever since Donald Trump captured the party’s nomination in 2016. Afraid of his political influence, and delighted with his largely conservative agenda, party leaders have compromised again and again, swallowing their criticisms and tacitly if not openly endorsing presidential behavior they would have excoriated in a Democrat. Compromise by compromise, Donald Trump has hammered away at what Republicans once saw as foundational virtues: decency, honesty, responsibility. He has asked them to substitute loyalty to him for their patriotism itself.”

What Democrats have lost sight of is that Trump is not “looking for dirt” on an opponent. He has two very legitimate reasons for his inquiries.

First, he’s looking to hold people accountable for the grave injustice that was thrust upon him and which consumed the better part of his first term. There was a concerted effort to frame him for a crime he didn’t commit. Those who are complicit are acutely aware of this. As they feel John Durham getting closer to the truth, they are panicking. For a time, they thought they’d gotten away with it.

This was a perversion of justice on an epic scale. What sane person wouldn’t want to discover who was involved and how it evolved? We need to expose this fraud so it doesn’t happen to a future president.

Hillary Clinton, who commissioned the opposition research from which this whole narrative sprung, was until her defeat a master of manipulation. It no longer works for her. Last week, she tried to spin a false narrative around Tulsi Gabbard. Since by now Hillary’s name has become synonymous with corruption, her effort was cut off at the knees.

But that how it starts. It’s that easy. “You know, it sure looks like Trump is getting cozy with the Russians.” When that message gets repeated over and over again by influential and respected government officials, and then agencies like the FBI and the CIA pick up the mantra, it takes on a life of its own.

Then, enemies within Trump’s own party see an opportunity to “get back” at him, it fans the flames even further. For example, one of Trump’s bitter 2016 rivals, former Ohio John Kasich, jumped on the bandwagon this week to say, with great sadness of course, that he believes Trump’s statements to Zelensky rise to the level of impeachment. In fact, the Times’  editors wrote that Republicans should follow the lead of men like Kasich. They also suggested Justin Amash, best known as the only Republican Congressman to call for Trump’s impeachment. Further, on the Fourth of July, Amash declared his “independence” and left the Republican Party. The Times’ choice of two of the President’s most outspoken critics as leaders we should look to emulate speaks to the weakness of their argument.

And second, Joe Biden leveraged $1 billion in U.S. aid to force Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was about to question his son. Yes, I know, Biden claims the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was corrupt. However:

1. Biden has no evidence of Shokin’s corruption.

2. Biden had a strong motive in silencing Shokin. Parents will go to great lengths to protect their children.

3. Ukraine is known for corruption. If Shokin posed no threat to Biden, what was the point of insisting on a six-hour deadline. Why was it so urgent that he be fired immediately? If Shokin were corrupt, so were a thousand other Ukrainian officials. Why Shokin? Why immediately?

4. Shokin appeared in a court of law where he signed a sworn affidavit stating otherwise.

5. Biden has a history of both embellishing and even fabricating stories.

There are compelling reasons to suspect Biden of wrongdoing. Even if Biden were not running for President, there’s more than enough smoke here to warrant an investigation.

The editorial says:

There was a time when Republicans like Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa said that soliciting foreign election assistance would be improper. But most congressional Republicans have taken to avoiding such questions as the evidence against Mr. Trump has piled up.

Okay, let’s talk about soliciting foreign election assistance. Hillary Clinton and the DNC commissioned a Washington op-research firm, Fusion GPS, to hire former British spy Christopher Steele to tap his foreign contacts to compile an unverified document of stories about candidate Trump (truth not required). This spy had his foreign information hand delivered to the FBI by the fourth highest ranking DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, who acted as the backchannel. Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, was an independent contractor who worked for Fusion GPS to dig up dirt during 2016 on members of the Trump family. Testifying under oath before Congress, Nellie Ohr admitted much of her information came from a Ukrainian source. She put together a dossier of her own in the summer of 2016 which her husband delivered to the FBI on a thumbdrive.

The owner of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, had several Russian clients, one of whom was Natalia Veselnitskaya, one of the Russians who initiated and attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. in June 2016. Simpson had dinner with Veselnitskaya the night before the meeting and after the meeting.

Although it hasn’t been definitely proven yet, evidence suggests the FBI sent spies into the Trump campaign. They arranged for Joseph Mifsud to meet with George Papadopoulos in Rome and London. This information will become more clear after the IG report is released which is said to be this week. A full accounting of everything that occurred on foreign soil is beyond the scope of this post, but it is vast. And it allowed the perpetrators to circumvent U.S. laws.

The editors continue:

Yet Republicans will not be able to postpone a reckoning with Trumpism for much longer. The investigation by House Democrats appears likely to result in a vote for impeachment, despite efforts by the White House to obstruct the inquiry.

So do it. Go ahead and impeach him. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi likely has the votes. What is her hesitation? As most of us are aware, the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is not even official because Pelosi has refused to hold a vote on the House floor to open it. She called a press conference to announce her impeachment inquiry, yet she won’t pull the trigger. On Friday, she announced that she “would not be holding a vote anytime soon.”

She has several good reasons for not doing so. First, it will leave Democratic members of Congress from districts where Trump won vulnerable. Second, once a formal floor vote is taken to open an impeachment inquiry, Republicans, who have been shut out of the process entirely, would gain the power to issue subpoenas and to question witnesses. The Democrats are very happy with their unofficial unilateral impeachment. Third, once the House votes to impeach, they will lose control of the narrative. The impeachment inquiry would be then in the hands of the Senate. The House Democrats would become irrelevant. And the matter would be treated much differently by the Republican controlled Senate.

The Constitution’s framers envisioned America’s political leaders as bound by a devotion to country above all else. That’s why all elected officials take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. By protecting Donald Trump at all costs from all consequences, the Republicans risk violating that sacred oath.

Please don’t lecture us about sacred oaths and devotion to country. Your words are hypocritical, misguided and pathetic. Nothing is sacred to Nancy Pelosi or her front man, Adam Schiff, except for their insatiable hunger for power. Democrats don’t love America, nor do they respect the rule of law.

They’ve tried everything they could possibly conceive of to destroy this man. They were counting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to deliver for them. When his investigation failed to result in an indictment, they chose Ukraine-gate.

Our founders never intended for impeachment to be used as a political tool for one party to take power from another. It was “supposed to be reserved for truly abominable misconduct.”

The New York Times has jumped the shark. Perhaps it happened when they tried to rewrite history with the launch of the 1691 project. Or maybe before.

Along the way, the left forgot one of Alinsky’s most important rules. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

This fraud has dragged on too long.

Barr and Durham are closing in, and they will be exposed.

And, like they say, history will remember it.

Hillary Clinton Tries to Mock Trump Letter, Ends Up Stepping In It

Westlake Legal Group 3-angry-hillary-SCREENSHOT Hillary Clinton Tries to Mock Trump Letter, Ends Up Stepping In It Turkey Russia Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Featured Story Featured Post donald trump Allow Media Exception

It’s not clear what’s going on with Hillary Clinton in the last few days.

With her tussle with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), she seems to have completely lost her mind. We mean even more so than usual.

First, she suggested that Gabbard was a “Russian asset” and that Gabbard was likely being groomed to run as a third party candidate to help President Donald Trump win. When Gabbard roasted her in response calling her “queen of the warmongers,” Clinton dropped out of attendance at an event that would have had Gabbard at it.

Now, in an effort to mock the letter that Trump sent to Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan, she posted this:

Seriously? This was the Democrats’ 2016 candidate? This is the best they have?

When you’ve lost the liberal media…

AP guy:

Washington Post fact checker:

Politico:

And it wasn’t even original. As in she ripped off Jimmy Kimmel. But Kimmel wasn’t a Democratic candidate for president.

Others also chimed in.

Is Hillary every going to get over the burn of losing? Doesn’t seem like it.

Trump and Susan Rice Battle Over Syria, She Gets Busted by the Facts

Westlake Legal Group susan-rice-andrea-mitchell-e1491417290742 Trump and Susan Rice Battle Over Syria, She Gets Busted by the Facts Syria Susan Rice Obama Middle East Iraq International Affairs Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump Benghazi Barack Obama Allow Media Exception

President Donald Trump and former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice have been trading barbs over the last couple of days after Rice went on “Real Time” with Bill Maher and bashed Trump’s actions in Syria.

According to the Washington Examiner, on the show, Rice said that Trump’s actions in Syria and Iraq were “going nowhere good” and that “ISIS is going to come back.”

Trump responded, reminding her what a disaster the Obama administration was in Syria.

“Remember RED LINE IN THE SAND? That was Obama. Millions killed! No thanks Susan, you were a disaster,” he tweeted.

A lot of people have weighed in on Trump’s actions in Syria and Iraq. But one group who has absolutely no standing to speak is the former officials of the Obama administration.

The Obama administration failed to stand up to Vladimir Putin or deal with the chemical weapons attacks from the Syrian regime despite drawing multiple “red lines” in the sand, embarrassing the nation and letting thousands more be killed. Even after making a “deal” made with the Russians, chemical attacks continued. The Obama administration’s withdrawal from Iraq left a huge hole and his failure to act in 2014 when ISIS was beginning to rise then led to the deaths of thousands more, including Americans.

Democrats like Susan Rice are more upset about the last few days than the hundreds of thousands killed during the Obama administration. Susan Rice even promoted a fake propaganda video out of Syria with a woman waving a baby she claimed was dead (but who was blinking and clearly alive).

Rice shot back at Trump with another tweet.

Rice was pushing her book about that attacks in Benghazi when she was on Maher’s show.

Trump was likely being kind to her in a social setting, assuming that was what he said.

But, Benghazi is the last thing that she has any right to talk about after going on all the Sunday shows and blaming it on a internet video rather than calling it the Al Qaeda attack they knew it was. She was part of the Obama administration that failed Americans who died and were wounded in Benghazi on multiple levels. First, failing to provide proper security, despite specific threats and a prior attack by Al Qaeda on the mission a few months before. Then the failure to provide forces early enough to respond. Then lying about it later both to the American public and to the families themselves.

She’s also a factor in the Trump surveillance scandal that has not been settled yet. She was caught unmasking Trump aides and then lying about it, again on television? Remember that scandal from the administration that claims it had no scandals?

Trump was unfortunately left with the mess made by the Obama administration and they’re the last people who should be speaking after their huge failure there.

CLIMATE SCARE FLASHBACK: Al Gore And An Inconvenient Forecast

Westlake Legal Group AP_16340653330042-300x200 CLIMATE SCARE FLASHBACK: Al Gore And An Inconvenient Forecast Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception 2019

(AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

You do have to hand it to former Vice President and ohhhhhhhhhh so close 43rd President, Al Gore. He picked one profession after politics that you can lie and make even MORE money.

Props there Albert.

As I have documented in my fun Lil project about how people who have been predicting gloom forever on the climate have been fabulously wrong with my previous projects…

CLIMATE FLASHBACK: In 1978 Mr. Spock Told Us Another Ice Age Would Be Here By Now.

and

CLIMATE SCARE FLASHBACK: Jimmy Carter Predicts We Run Out Of Oil By 2011

People have been saying we are going to get too cold, too hot and run out of water and oil forever. This seems like a trend to constantly get people worked up over nothing.

Now we come to the guy who literally reinvented himself after he lost the 2000 Presidential election and decided to stop talking about the “Social Security Lock Box” and focus on how in the hell to scare people on climate. He has succeeded to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars and one of those Nobel Peace Prize things that President Obama got for breathing.

Albert got right to work after losing to the cowboy from Texas for the sweet gig that included getting free plane rides on that gas burning hog Air Force One and decided to make what can loosely be called a documentary. His film An Inconvenient Truth won an Academy Award for best ficti…errrrr Best Documentary and set off a firestorm of controversy.

In the film, Al talks about Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa and how the melting of the snow on the mountain was helping cause catastrophe in Africa and even hurricanes that would attack the United States. Mostly because before the combustible engine, there were no hurricanes? Let me get back to you on that.

The trailer to the film is below.

http://www.just-kilimanjaro.com/?/blog/view/snow-adorns-the-crown-of-kilimanjaro

This is Mt Kilimanjaro 30 years ago and last year, within in the decade there will be no more snows on Kilimanjaro.

( Time Stamp in video 5o seconds to 1 minute)

Now everyone always talks about his prediction in this film about the glaciers in the north and south poles being wrong but this example above is equally egregious.

Why?

He says that within the decade all the snow was going to be gone. Well, had Al taken some of that dough he made off this farce and gone back in May 2012 he would have seen this. Just Kilimanjaro and that it looked quite white and fluffy up there.

See the environment has things called cycles. This movie came on the heels of Hurricane Katrina devasting New Orleans in 2005 and one of the premises was that bigger and more frequent hurricanes were coming.

According to the NOAA the Atlantic averages about six hurricanes a year. Since 2013 this is how hurricanes have broken down each year.

2013 (2)
2014 (6)
2015 (4)
2016 (7)
2017 (10)
2018 (8)

According to Al and his pals’ theories, we should be at 10 to 12 hurricanes each year, all the snow on Mt Kilimanjaro should be gone, the glaciers should be melted and Florida should be underwater. Also, we should either be really hot or cold.

So we are right about average. Damn.

I do really give Al credit. He must have watched a lot of weather forecasts on his local channel, realized that they get paid well and are not always right and thought ” I can do that.” Really well played Al.

I do have a suggestion for the next film though.

Bill Maher Offers Trump a Bribe to Resign

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-real-time-SCREENSHOT Bill Maher Offers Trump a Bribe to Resign resign Media impeachment Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump bribe Bill Maher Allow Media Exception

Paging the feds.

Sure sounds like liberal television host Bill Maher just offered President Donald Trump a bribe to resign.

Maher offered Trump $1 million during his Friday night show, according to The Hill. And maybe a lot more.

“Just take my check for $1 million,” Maher, a long-standing Trump critic, said on HBO’s “Real Time.”

“I bet I could get another 1,000 people just from here to the beach — including Malibu, of course — who would pay that much to see you resign,” Maher added.

Maher concluded, “Mr. President, it is really very simple. You love money. We hate you.”

He has called on other Hollywood folks, including Oprah, Cher, Madonna, [Lady] Gaga, Bono, Jay Z, Beyoncé, Pink, Rihanna, Usher, Pharrell, Eminem, saying they use their wealth for all kinds of other things and that this a worthier cause than what they normally were spending it on. He referred to it as the “prickstarter” campaign and asked Hollywood stars to kick in a million each to fund the effort. How droll, Hollywood crowd-sourced bribery.

He insisted he was not kidding, that he was serious. ‘My God, Bill, are you suggesting we pay this man to go away? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m suggesting. In fact, I’m insisting,” Maher persisted. It is, of course, illegal to bribe a public official by offering them anything of value to take any actions in their office.

According to the Washington Times, Trump mocked the offer. “I thought this wacko was kidding,” Trump said. “He’s serious. He really believes it.”

How condescending that Maher thinks he and his liberal buddies can buy off the vote of the people because they’re not happy with it? It’s not just about Trump. It’s about them thinking that they know better than the American people who should or should not be in office. We have an election next year. You don’t like him, spend the money to rally the vote to defeat him. But the fact that you think you can’t or that you need to bribe him out now says far more about the bankruptcy of your thought than it does about Trump.

Maher has also been in favor of impeachment but has disparaged it because he knows it wouldn’t be successful ultimately and that it would “paralyze” the country. But what does he think the constant Trump bashing of the Democrats and the media has done, even without impeachment? How much division does he intend to stoke? They make it all about Trump all the time, even as they say they want him gone. Maher even called for a recession to harm America if it would help get Trump out.

It goes without saying that the average American doesn’t have that same view as the coastal elites. What they do see is a president who has given up his salary to serve as president. They do see lower unemployment, with more jobs and more money in their pockets because of Trump being in office, and more effort being made on the issues about which they care. And that’s what’s going to tell the tale in 2020.

That may be why Democrats and Maher don’t want to leave it up to the people.

CA Governor Gavin Newsom Pardons Three Immigrants Facing Deportation

Westlake Legal Group GavinNewsomAPimage-300x153 CA Governor Gavin Newsom Pardons Three Immigrants Facing Deportation pardon Newsom immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story California

Gov. Gavin Newsom discusses a report detailing the efforts by the DMV to improve customer services during a news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday, July 23, 2019. Some of the suggestions are to accept credit cards, upgrade the DMV’s website and offer clearer instructions on how to obtain a new federally mandated ID. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)

California – the state where your right to camp on a sidewalk and poop in the street are protected by law but drinking straws are illegal and the power grid is third world quality.

While taxpayers continue to bear the burden of the hundreds of new laws and regulations recently signed by Governor Newsom, yet another slap in the face to the average California resident was handed down Friday. Governor Gavin Newsom announced he would be pardoning three immigrants who had been serving time in the California penal system for criminal offenses.

Newsom’s office said the three facing deportation “made bad decisions” while breaking the law as teenagers or young adults, but they served their sentences and transformed their lives. Deporting them now would be “an unjust collateral consequence” harming their families and communities.

The three hail from Iran, El Salvador and Cambodia, but all now live in Los Angeles County. He also pardoned a fourth man, Curtis Reynolds, 59, of Sacramento County, who was convicted of six drug felonies between 1998 and 2003.

— Arnou Aghamalian, 42, who was convicted 20 years ago of helping his cousin set an unoccupied car on fire. The car belonged to a nightclub manager who had been arguing with his cousin. Aghamalian now owns a solar energy company and has a wife and twin newborns, according to Newsom’s office. He legally entered the U.S. as a refugee from Iran with his family when he was 15.

— Victor Ayala, 38, who was convicted of felony robbery in 2001 when he shoved a security guard after shoplifting items from an electronic store. He had four prior misdemeanor convictions for theft and a hit and run in which no one was injured. The father of three now runs a carpet cleaning business. He was 2 years old when he and his parents lawfully came to the U.S. from El Salvador.

— Thear Sam, 41, who was convicted of robbing a man of his wallet and backpack when he was 18. He was later convicted of being an accessory after he separately gave a man a ride after the man stole a car, led police on a high-speed chase and escaped on foot. He has worked more than 17 years for an aviation company, and his wife and daughter are both U.S. citizens. He was 4 when he lawfully entered the U.S. as a refugee from Cambodia fleeing the Khmer Rouge.

While business owners and frustrated families beg the Governor to rid their streets of pestilence, crime and the other extreme hazards that come from having tens of thousands of mentally ill people on the streets, Newsom is obsessed with sticking his thumb in Trump’s eye by skirting federal immigration law. The offenders may well deserve a second chance, but they must go through the process legally to legitimize their new lives. Every American convicted of a crime must do the same thing. Immigration law says convicted criminals not native to this country must be deported. However, there are tools available to help such people navigate the immigration system and establish legal residence.

It isn’t about some nice men who were wrong and now they’re right and deserve a second chance. It is about the fact that the governor of California continually bends over backwards to accommodate everyone but the law-abiding, innocent, taxpayer…most of whom have never committed a crime of any kind in their lives…yet whom still get treated like criminals while criminals are afforded every advantage.

It is grossly and tragically insulting. One wonders when the people of California will finally decided they’ve had enough and revolt.

Bernie Sanders Says He Is Back, But His Campaign Is STILL Toast. Sorry A.O.C.

Hand Me The Community Socialist Butter, I’m Toast.

Bernie is BACK, home resting after that campaign event took a bit of wind out of his sails.

I wrote here last week after the BIG ENDORSEMENT was announced of A.O.C and the squad of Bernie, that his campaign was over. Even With AOC And The Squad Endorsing Bernie, His Campaign Is Over.

That is still true after yesterday’s massive rally he held declaring HE WAS BACK.

According to CNBC the event was a success on a few levels.

Storming past questions about his health, Bernie Sanders vowed that he’s “more ready than ever” to fight for a political revolution — with a little help from new friends — at a rally Saturday that drew thousands to a New York City park. The rally offered a pointed reminder to skeptics in both political parties that the 78-year-old democratic socialist is still very much a force in the 2020 presidential race.

Sanders opened his remarks by apologizing that he secured a permit for only 20,000 people. His campaign, he said, was forced to close the gates on many more people who were trying to enter the Queens park just across the river from Manhattan.

“To put it bluntly, I am back,” Sanders declared, sparking chants of, “Bernie is back” from the massive crowd.

“I am happy to report to you that I am more than ready — more ready than ever — to carry on with you on the epic struggle that we face today,” he added. “I am more than ready to assume the office of president of the United States.”

The facility was only supposed to hold 20,000 people but an estimated 25,000 people showed up to hear Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez speak warmly about Bernie. Something went possibly wrong though being she did not feel the Bernnnnnn enough to publicly endorse him in her speech.

The issue is still this.

There are 106 days until the Iowa caucuses and you have a 78-year-old man that just had a major operation on the organ that keeps him alive. A guy half his age would be slowed down or stopped by this. There is no shame in admitting that, in fact, it is a function of life after surgery.

Sanders does not have any events scheduled until later this week and then one the following week. They do not have the events listed yet on his campaign site, which I’m sure will be updated but they are wisely keeping this secret being the staff knows what most neutral observers realize. There is not enough time for the 78-year-old firebrand to recover from this type of surgery.

One of his campaign talking points was uttered given in the article above…

Nina Turner, one of Sanders’ national co-chairs, said it “boggles my mind” that Sanders’ critics have embraced “ageism.”

“Life happens to us all,” she said.

What actually is boggling is watching a 78-year-old recovering from his heart attack continue the folly of this campaign.

I fully understand what a crap break this is. Sanders was absolutely robbed by Clinton and DNC in 2016 and now right in the middle of a battle that was slowly turning against him, this happened. All the firepower of the Squad cheer group getting behind him will not be able to change the fact that he should be slowly recuperating at home to get back to 50% of his normal routing from 2017. Throwing in the crazy hectic nonsense of a Presidential campaign in 2019 and this will drain Bernie’s energy faster than he plans to drain a billionaires bank account.

The other democrat’s campaign knives have already come out and are whispering about how long can this go on. Even if he still is in the top 3 for the 4th qtr for fundraising, the campaign calendar is not going to be kind to Bernie.

I truly hope he goes home and gets a lot of rest and gear up for next summer when either Biden or Warren will accept the nomination.

Unfortunately for Bernie and his supporters, it won’t be him.

His campaign is toast.

Scorching Hot Take: Donald Trump Is Criminally Liable For “Crimes Against Humanity” For Pulling Out of Syria

Westlake Legal Group a8636803-f428-4e76-ab5b-b516cf1d9e5e-620x317 Scorching Hot Take: Donald Trump Is Criminally Liable For “Crimes Against Humanity” For Pulling Out of Syria YPG Turkey The Kurds Syria Politics pkk nbc lunacy Human Rights Tribunal Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump criminal Crazy Allow Media Exception

Sometimes I wonder if Trump really is just special or if this kind of lunacy will continue with the next Republican. I’m gonna guess the latter.

We are currently in the middle of a tenuous ceasefire in Northern Syria between the Turks and YPG Kurds. There’s been some rattling from sources saying it’s been breached, but the AP reported last night that it’s still officially holding. The YPG are migrating south, away from the safe zone, which will likely benefit everyone long term. The border battle with Turkey and their attempt to make their own state were never going to end well. Fair or not, they reside in the legal state of Syria and that reality has to be taken into account.

Of course, because Donald Trump is in the middle of this, having pulled out a small contingent of U.S. troops over a week ago, that means we will now get some of the hottest of hot takes on the matter.

Take this for example.

If this is true, then it shows how truly unprepared and idiotic many U.S. officials are. We should be seriously scared at the incompetency being shown by anyone who would suggest this.

Before we get into the legal details here, just think about how little sense that tweet makes. This NBC reporter is asserting that Donald Trump and the United States could be criminally liable for “crimes against humanity” due to withdrawing troops from a war zone.

Further, this assumes that those who put helped foment the civil war in the first place, costing 500,000 lives, and then did nothing to protect them are somehow not liable. So Obama is off the hook, but Donald Trump is going to the Hague for pulling back 50 advisors in the middle of a decades long border dispute.

Makes sense.

As to the legal realities at play, Gabriel Malor lays it out.

What’s really going on here is that the Kurds are communicating with friendly U.S. officials in Washington to try to bait the United States into reacting against Turkey. That’s why you see tweets like this as well.

This is ludicrous. Are Turkey overstepping and causing deaths? Yes, they are. Is there any actual genocide or ethnic cleansing currently going on? No, there’s not and it helps no one to play into such hysteria. Perhaps Turkey could cross that line, but asking the YPG to pull back from a border they’ve been attacking with the insurgent PKK for decades is not “ethnic cleansing.” It’s complicated, as has been laid out in detail many times already.

And to pretend that what’s happening now is somehow the “biggest” ethnic cleansing operation of the 21st century ignores the hundreds of thousands of deaths during the Syrian civil war and the tens of thousands killed by ISIS via targeted persecution during the Obama administration.

In the end, no, Donald Trump is not criminally liable for what Turkey does. He’s not guilty of crimes against humanity for not putting U.S. troops in a meat grinder in a vain hope to stop sectarian violence. Such suggestions are patently insane.
