Frustrated California Woman Has Scathing Message For Gavin Newsom After Homeless Chaos Destroys Her Small Business

A frustrated California woman took to Twitter on Friday to blast governor Gavin Newsom’s disastrous policies that have created a desperate homeless problem. The woman – who goes by @Jesus_porvida on Twitter – was clearly upset as she posted a video detailing why she may be forced to close the doors of her business.

I have had a business in downtown Sacramento for 15 yrs, a successful business. I now have to leave my place of business. I have to close my shop.

Later tweets show pictures of the woman’s shop after the most recent in a series of  break-ins, a break-in that apparently was the last straw for the Sacramento are hair stylist.

I have to clean up the poop and pee off my doorstep. I have to clean up the syringes. I have to politely ask ppl who I care for – I care about the homeless – to move their tents out of the way of the door to my business. I have to fight off people who push their way into my shop that are homeless and on drugs because you won[t arrest them for drug offenses.  I have to apologize to my clients as to why they can’t get into my door because there’s somebody asleep there bc they’re not getting the help they need.

I talk to police offers. They told me to contact you. They want to do something and they can’t because you changed the laws. So I wanna know what you’re gonna do for us, the ones that are unhappy. You wanna make us a sanctuary state. You wanna make it comfortable for everybody except for the ppl that work hard and have tried their hardest to get along in life and now we have to change that because of your laws.

She shredded Newsom’s “liberal ideology” as the cause for the current chaos that forced her to close the doors of her business.

While you sit in your million dollar home you don’t have to look at what we have to look at; there’s hard working people who have to deal with this on a daily basis. What are you going to do for us?

The rant sparked a flood of responses from people sharing similar experiences.

Crime and pestilence have been skyrocketing in the state of California as a spate of policies decriminalizing petty theft, open drug use and vagrancy violations have tied the hands of police and left citizens and business owners vulnerable and frightened. California politicians have been deliberately vague about the problems caused by homelessness.

Comey: Trump’s “frustration” over the Russia probe doesn’t let him off the hook for obstruction

Yeah, Bill Barr’s argument on this point left me scratching my head last week and I’m still scratching it now. He told Dianne Feinstein during his latest Senate testimony that one reason he didn’t think Trump had obstructed justice is because obstruction under the law requires evidence of “corrupt intent.” If the president knew he was innocent of collusion, Barr reasoned, and sincerely felt persecuted for partisan political reasons then would it really have been “corrupt” for him to try to fire Bob Mueller and end the Russiagate probe? He was frustrated (and remains frustrated) that the investigation left him under a cloud politically for two years. He wasn’t trying to prevent Mueller from indicting him. Ending an inquiry which he had every reason to believe *wouldn’t* lead to him being accused of an underlying crime isn’t “corrupt.”

But if you take that logic seriously, it should mean that no one who’s falsely accused of a crime can be convicted of obstruction. If the local U.S. Attorney starts investigating you for terrorism and you know you’re innocent, why shouldn’t you plant fabricated evidence or lie under oath to steer him away from suspicion of you? You have every right to be frustrated that he’s interrupted your life and placed a cloud over you when you know you haven’t done anything wrong. Witch hunt!

Of course you can commit obstruction even if you’ve committed no other crime and even if you acted out of “frustration.” The obstruction statute is there to deter people from deliberately impeding or corrupting federal investigations whether or not they’re at risk of being charged. We want to know when the DOJ finishes up with a probe that the probe wasn’t rigged somehow by outside sources. What makes Barr’s defense of Trump extra strange is that, while Trump might have been confident from the start that he personally wouldn’t be indicted, he was in the dark about which members of his inner circle might be. His son was in criminal jeopardy for months; his pal Mike Flynn was in such deep trouble that Trump had a word with Comey about it. By limiting the question of “corrupt intent” to whether Trump was trying to protect *himself* from being indicted, Barr glossed over the president’s anxiety about the people around him.

He’d have been better off making the strong-form argument that Alan Dershowitz made about this: If the president has the power under the Constitution to end an investigation or fire Mueller, then by definition his actions can’t be obstruction regardless of whether his motive was corrupt. They’re lawful, period. That’s an unsatisfying explanation since it would mean that the president enjoys certain powers to impede an investigation in which either he or his close associates are implicated that the average citizen doesn’t enjoy, but, well, he does. Just like Congress has certain powers to remove the president from office that the average citizen doesn’t enjoy.

Exit quotation: “Republicans need to breathe into a paper bag. If we had confronted the same facts with a different candidate, say a Democrat candidate, where one of their advisers was talking to a foreign adversary’s representative, about that adversary’s interference in our election, they would be screaming for the FBI to investigate and that’s all we did.”
