By passing and signing CA Senate Bill 54 Democrat politicians of CA state legislature may well have cause California to be the epicenter of ICE enforcement actions.

Part from statement by acting ICE Director Tom Homan,

“Governor Jerry Brown’s decision to sign SB54 and make California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens – including those who have committed crimes – will undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing its federally mandated mission. …

ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community. ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California.

Ultimately, SB54 helps shield removable aliens from immigration enforcement and creates another magnet for more illegal immigration, all at the expense of the safety and security of the very people it purports to protect.”

Needs repeating,
“ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California.”

State legislature Democrats showing off to their base came up with half baked knee jerk legislation which may actually adversely effect those it sought to shield.
Another example of why electing Democrats then failing to provide ADULT supervision is a bad idea.

I just realized that there is one political party and one group, and faction in this country that keep saying what a bad country America is, how we’re mean prejudice and hateful……
Then I realize how really good overwhelming American society is and how the world all really wants to come here to live in our system and to prosper. I now see where that one political party has really put a wedge into society and between people groups. I think they feel that they benefit from doing that. It’s really a shame. I think we all know which party I’m talking about who is so divisive. I’m very happy that Trump is president and I think the country is going to really do well under him.

◾️ Statement from ICE Acting Director Tom Homan on California Sanctuary Law

Governor Jerry Brown’s decision to sign SB54 and make California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens – including those who have committed crimes – will undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing its federally mandated mission. The governor is simply wrong when he claims otherwise.

SB54 will negatively impact ICE operations in California by nearly eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state, voiding the delegated authority that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has under the 287g program, and prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees.

ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community. ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California.

Ultimately, SB54 helps shield removable aliens from immigration enforcement and creates another magnet for more illegal immigration, all at the expense of the safety and security of the very people it purports to protect.

Despite the severe challenges that this law creates for ICE, we remain committed to our public safety mission and we will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all sheriffs and local elected officials. This misguided legislation will severely undermine those efforts.

◾️ Korean national pleads guilty to conspiring to defraud the US by diverting millions of untaxed cigarettes

LOS ANGELES – Un Hag Baeg, 58, of Marina del Rey, Calif., a Korean national currently living in the U.S., pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiring to defraud the United States government by evading federal excise taxes due on 143 million cigarettes sold domestically, but which the co-conspirators claimed were destined for cargo vessels sailing out of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

According to court documents, between 2012 and 2015, Baeg and others conspired to divert approximately 143 million export-only cigarettes from an export warehouse near the Port of Los Angeles. Baeg purchased the cigarettes under the pretext that the cigarettes would be provided to various ships sailing out of the United States from the ports.

In fact, the cigarettes were sold in the United States resulting in millions of dollars in lost federal and state excise taxes. Baeg and his co-conspirators subsequently hid their fraud by preparing false paperwork indicating that the cigarettes had been delivered to the various ships. In order to give this paperwork the appearance of legitimacy, the conspirators would stamp the paperwork with false rubber stamps bearing the names of the subject cargo vessels.

◾️ ICE removes top Mexican drug trafficker

NEW YORK – Deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a top Mexican drug kingpin Sept. 1.

Esteban Rodriguez-Olivera, 52, departed from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and arrived in Mexico without incident.

He was transferred to ERO New York custody Aug. 28 from the Federal Bureau of Prisons Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn where he was serving a sentence for a felony cocaine conviction.

Rodriguez-Olivera, one of the leaders of the “Los Gueros” international drug organization, pleaded guilty in November 2012 to charges of conspiring to import illegal narcotics into the United States.
The conspiracy resulted in the evasion of federal excise taxes totaling $7,260,203.16 and California state excise taxes totaling $5,986,458.00.

◾️ Multiagency probe targeting suspected drug and firearms trafficking by Fresno-area street gang results in more than 2 dozen arrests

FRESNO, Calif. – Federal and local investigators, including special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), fanned out across Fresno Thursday morning to arrest 29 defendants suspected of trafficking drugs and weapons on behalf of a local street gang.

The arrests follow a 10-month multiagency probe that, according to court documents, linked the various defendants to multiple sales of methamphetamine, cocaine, and firearms between January and August 2017. In addition to drug and weapons trafficking, members of the street gang are also accused of engaging in commercial prostitution and transporting women across state lines for that purpose.
All of those charged in the federal criminal complaint are Fresno residents. They include: Carlos Montano, 27; Filibert Chavez, 35; Robin Gill, 31; Gabriel Gomez, 26; Juan Carlos Briceno, 36; Nicholas Bolanos, 25; Daniel Villanueva, 19; Gerrick Travis Tyrell Franklin, 27; Amina Padilla, 34; Robert Lockhart, 52; Idelfonso Soto, 19; Carlos Melgar, 36; Jeni Fries, 23; Cisco Hernandez, 23; Miguel Murrillo, 22; Adolfo Jesus Mendoza, 23; Jesus Melgarejo Jr., 26; and Cesar Gutierrez, 24.

All of the defendants are in custody except Gabriel Gomez, Daniel Villanueva, and Gerrick Travis Tyrell Franklin. If convicted of the current charges, several of the federal defendants face mandatory minimum prison terms of 10 years and maximum sentences of life.

The charges are only allegations; the defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

◾️Military Leaders Visit The White House

Last night, President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcomed senior military officials and their spouses to a dinner at the White House, during which they discussed the many challenges faced by military families.

Prior to dinner, the President participated in a briefing with the military leaders to review progress in protecting the homeland, advancing American prosperity, pursuing peace through strength, and promoting positive American influence abroad


From the White House, the White House reads:

◾️At Fox News, contributor Steve Cortes writes that President Trump “has already delivered real results for Hispanics” on the economy, ending the DACA program with “empathy,” and his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria hitting Puerto Rico.

◾️In foreign policy news, Bryan Bender of Politico reports President Trump plans to launch a new public campaign against the Lebanon based armed wing of Hezbollah as a part of a broad effort to counter the malign activities of Iran, who happens to be the chief backer of the militant group.

◾️Regarding tax reform, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Glenn Hubbard writes in The Wall Street Journal that President Trump’s tax framework “offers economic gains from lower business tax rates, a competitive territorial tax system for multinational companies, and more-favorable treatment of business investment in plant and equipment.”

◾️And in the Washington Examiner, Americans for Prosperity’s Christine Harbin writes that the Trump administration’s “efforts in regulatory relief have not grabbed a lot of headlines in the media, but they have had significant impact in peeling back the regulatory state left over from President Barack Obama and prior administrations.”

Instead of making stupid threats Donald Trump should read up on what happened during Exercise Able Archer in 1983 when a command post exercise practising the run up to a nuclear war by forces across Europe was interpreted by Russia as a disguise for the real thing. Russia believing it would not survive a first strike by NATO prepared for a preemptive strike by rapidly readying nuclear armed aircraft in both East Germany and Poland. Were it not for the fact that the NATO Exercise came to early end what is left of the world today could well have been a very different place.

What happened in Las Vegas was horrific. As a gun owner and a 2nd supporter this kind of crap really pisses me off. But why is there not much talk much about the drug problem in the US. Where is Chuck and Nancy on this issue?. There were over 64,000 drug related deaths last year in the US. That’s 175 people a day, 7 people every hour. In comparison there was 9900 gun related deaths in the US and most of those where in Chicago,(drug related), where the gun laws are the strictest. So do we have a drug problem or do we have a gun problem? Perhaps the US has a gun problem due to a drug problem.

@Original G – Harvey Weinstein is probably the biggest Producer in Hollywood. He’s created tons of movies, TV shows and even Broadway plays. He is also very political and is a big money Democratic doner. Recently, the New York Times published a story about him paying off several women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. This has been an “open-secret” in Hollywood for years. Everyone knew it – everyone looked the other way cuz Weinstein is a big wheel. The Dems are
worried cuz they’ve taken loads of campaign donations from him. For example: (no surprise here) Hillary Clinton. Hillary – the self-proclaimed “Champion for Women” , the person that (she thinks) young girls should look up to …… has had no problem receiving oodles in campaign donations from Weinstein. As anyone whose head is outside of their a$$ knows – Hillary will say or do anything – including ignore the common knowledge that someone is a sexual predator – as long as that someone is handing her money. Lisa Bloom, another hack lawyer, who supposedly represents only women in women’s rights cases – has cut her own throat on this one too. Yesterday, she was representing Weinstein and appeared on GMA trying to push a narrative that she was “helping a friend – that has admitted he made mistakes” . Weinstein can afford to pay her a fortune to come out on his side. Funny how all that women’s rights biz goes out the window when the cash starts coming in the door. Anyway, Bloom was shredded in the press as a hypocrite and resigned from Weinstein’s team today. I wonder when people will stop listening to these Hollywood types, lecturing us deplorables on how to live and what to think, when they’re all money-grubbing crooks and sickos.

If we are discussing massacres, don’t forget the 1857 Mountain Meadows massacre where a party of settlers from Arkansas were killed over a couple days in attacks by Mormons in southern Utah.

Gerry Brown is now officially a criminal, and everybody who follows his lead is a criminal.

Here’s the federal law: 8 USC 1324(a) … Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation. … Encouraging/Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law. … Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses. …

Will you follow Brown’s idiotic and illegal lead? Will you harbor illegal aliens and declare your status an a criminal?

All to import more potential Democrat voters. Sorry state of affairs … calloused, self-interested. short-sighted Democrats.

Once completed, the library will include a play garden for children, outdoor picnic space, basketball courts and a recording studio. It won’t have all of the former president’s documents, letters, and gifts he collected while in office, unlike most presidential libraries, which typically house the early drafts of speeches, legislation and correspondence that researchers and students can sift through.

Instead, his papers are kept in a private building in Washington, with the classified materials to be housed in a D.C. facility, and the non-classified documents in a National Archives and Records Administration facility

“The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to President Trump’s travel ban on majority-Muslim countries Tuesday because it has been replaced by a new version, sending the controversy back to the starting block.

The ruling is a victory for the Trump administration, which had asked the court to drop the case after Trump signed a proclamation Sept. 24 that replaced the temporary travel ban on six nations with a new, indefinite ban affecting eight countries. That action made the court challenge moot, the justices ruled.

“We express no view on the merits,” the justices said in a one-page order.

The decision effectively wipes the record clean in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, one of two federal appeals courts that had struck down major portions of Trump’s travel ban. That case began in Maryland.

A separate case from the 9th Circuit, based in California, remains pending because it includes a ban on refugees worldwide that won’t expire until later this month. But the Supreme Court is likely to ditch that case, which began in Hawaii, as well.”

Aspirin, well, well, something we can agree on. The Bushes occupied the highest office in this land without the slightest hint of sexual scandal or misconduct for many years, by the way. Perhaps liberals might persuade the Bushes to give them some lessons on fidelity, honesty, and integrity.

Fortunately term limits brought an end to totalitarian extortion Democrats are so good at.

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced early Wednesday morning the Department of Justice will no longer force defendants to send payments to third party special interests unrelated or unharmed in federal cases.

“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people— not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said in a statement. “Unfortunately, in recent years the Department of Justice has sometimes required or encouraged defendants to make these payments to third parties as a condition of settlement.”

“The Obama administration waged an extraordinary assault on our rule of law in its blatantly leftist abuses of our system of governance. Among them was an Obama shakedown scheme directed at corporations.

We just filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for records relating to an Obama administration policy of settling agency lawsuits against corporate defendants by requiring that the corporations make “donations” to left-wing interest groups La Raza, the Urban League and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition. We filed the suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-01064)). ”

Another example was Democrat attorneys generals going after Exxon when they ended giving yo the Clinton Foundation.

“California Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris is investigating whether Exxon Mobil Corp. repeatedly lied to the public and its shareholders about the risk to its business from climate change — and whether such actions could amount to securities fraud and violations of environmental laws.”

Good little party drones,
“Members of Congress are asking for a federal investigation into Exxon Mobil.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Los Angeles) and Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (D-Walnut Creek) wrote a letter Wednesday to Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch asking the Department of Justice whether the company violated the law by “failing to disclose truthful information” regarding climate change.”

Silva got me started ……

Qaddafi had to be eliminated because they were trying to get paid for their oil in GOLD. Saddam elimination wasn’t so much gold for oil but having oil valued in Euros.

“Libyan Oil, Gold, and Qaddafi: The Strange Email Sidney Blumenthal Sent Hillary Clinton In 2011”

“Newly disclosed emails show that Libya’s plan to create a gold-backed currency to compete with the euro and dollar was a motive for NATO’s intervention.”

“Hillary’s emails truly are the gifts that keep on giving. While France led the proponents of the UN Security Council Resolution that would create a no-fly zone in Libya, it claimed that its primary concern was the protection of Libyan civilians (considering the current state of affairs alone, one must rethink the authenticity of this concern). As many “conspiracy theorists” will claim, one of the real reasons to go to Libya was Gaddafi’s planned gold dinar.

One of the 3,000 Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on New Year’s Eve (where real news is sent to die quietly) has revealed evidence that NATO’s plot to overthrow Gaddafi was fueled by first their desire to quash the gold-backed African currency, and second the Libyan oil reserves.”

“According to the infamous Project for a New American Century (PNAC) document endorsed by senior Bush administration officials as far back as 1997, “While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification” for the US “to play a more permanent role in Gulf regional security,” “the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein.””

MUST READ blows lid off Bush’s idiot kid.

HIP wader alert.
” Scientists are warning we need “carbon-sucking” technologies by 2030 in order to prevent global temperature increases.

In the fight to curtail global warming, scientists say geoengineering — large-scale manipulation of carbon dioxide and solar radiation to lessen their effect on the planet — is absolutely necessary.”

Sounds more like propaganda so large companies can sell equipment to industry mandated by liberals.

If carbon dioxide is a problem, well plants use it to make oxygen so plant more plants and trees.

“One of the Democratic Party’s most prominent financial backers is demanding that lawmakers and candidates on the left support removing President Trump from office, putting pressure on Democrats to make Mr. Trump’s ouster a defining issue in the 2018 midterm elections.

Tom Steyer, a billionaire California investor who spent more than $91 million supporting Democrats in the 2016 elections, issued the demand to his party in a letter on Wednesday. In his message, Mr. Steyer described Mr. Trump as a “clear and present danger to the republic” and called on Democrats to pledge that they would seek to remove him from office if they take control of Congress next year.”

More like President Trump not being a corruptible career politician is a direct threat to business as usual of campaign contributions resulting in programs and laws directly advantaging the mega rich one percent.

The mega wealthy were counting on Hillary to continue their manipulation of the government gravy train and President Trump is a large threat to what they’ve built with campaign contributions to career politicians.

If your staying in away from the smoke do some info hunting.
on Tom Steyer and how he made his money.
TomKat, NextGen Climate, Farallon Capital and how it made it’s money.
Look for the progression of strategy for making billions from traditional to “green”, the new honey hole.

Could reason for California politicians going fanatically “green” partly so the mega rich one percent can make money off it ?

The president signed an executive order today that undoes at least some of the damage incurred when Democrats, ignoring common sense, rushed to pass the failing ACA.
Trump’s order will repeal two key parts of ACA that made insurance so unnecessarily expensive. First, his order will allow small businesses and individuals the opportunity to band together to purchase insurance that would be exempt from many of the onerous mandatory coverage required by the ACA. This will make health insurance more attractive to younger, healthier consumers who have mostly stayed away from bad ACA plans, driving up the cost of premiums and making it nearly impossible for insurance companies to make money.
The order attacks the very heart of the ACA, which FORCES people to pay for coverage they DON”T need or want.
The second change will also benefit consumers who wish to purchase shorter-term health care plans. It will extend the time consumers can use these plans from three months to a year.

Why didn’t obama and his incompetent band of followers include this important common sense change to the ACA? Maybe rejecting all Republican input out of hand wasn’t such a good idea, eh.

Venice October 12, 2017 at 12:55 PM

Obamacare buyers (suckers) in California are about to be hit with another 12.5% surcharge on top of their already built-into-the-cake 12.5% surcharge, making the cost of buying insurance on the individual market higher than ever and Obamacare itself even more deservedly detested.
More cost, less choice, and fewer services is the ever spiraling endgame, and the suckers stuck in the individual market can’t take their business elsewhere. In California, it’s either force the consumers to eat the higher costs or see the state devolve into a one-provider entity as insurers flee.

Obama is culpable for the unsustainable design, but he’s gone now, off to his libraryless library and jet-set vacations. But there are still the Republicans who failed to repeal this mess, and they are responsible for how high these disastrous price hikes are going to go.
Senators John McCain, Rand Paul, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins are the ones who can be thanked for this rate hike, because they refused to halt the hated Obamacare in its tracks three or four times this year, all in a bid to bite back at President Trump. They don’t care that Obamacare buyers are getting screwed yet again for more cost hikes, nor do they care that voters explicitly voted for them because they promised to end Obamacare and all its nightmares for consumers. Like petulant children they withhold their vote simply because the don’t like the president personally. Their personal feelings come before America.

As the vast majority of Americans don’t want the failing ACA, the Democrats seized the “narrative” about tiny groups of people who were “helped” by Obamacare. But the broader picture here is that millions and millions are now facing gigantic rate hikes because this horrible failed system is allowed to go on, thanks to the pathetic McCain, Paul, Murkowski, and Collins, who, by the way, are doing nothing to improve this situation otherwise.

White House said late on Thursday that it can’t lawfully pay the subsidies to health insurance companies.
A White House statement said that based on guidance from the Justice Department, “the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under the failing Obamacare.”
“In light of this analysis, the Government cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments,” the statement said.
Trump has made the payments, guaranteed to insurers under Obamacare to help lower out-of-pocket medical expenses for low-income consumers, each month since taking office in January. But he has repeatedly threatened to cut them off and disparaged them as a “bailout” for insurance companies.

“Progressives and liberals … do pay taxes.”

No they don’t. The rich hide their wealth in unnumbered Swiss bank accounts, and offshore accounts that cannot be traced in order to avoid paying taxes, They write off things on their taxes as expenditures in business of which the rest of us can only dream. They have accountants, tax consultants, attorneys, and financial advisors who tell them how to stay wealthy and how to make the minimum contribution required. They have tax shelters appropriate to their needs. They have things the rest of us don’t. The wealthy don’t suffer. The poor do. “Them that’s got is them that gets.”
