African American Reparation Bill Passes In California Assembly 56-5

One priority California’s Legislative Black Caucus passed Wednesday was a proposal to repeal California’s affirmative action ban.

Voters will get to decide on the full measure in November if the Senate approves the bill by the end of June.

But now the call is to provide reparations to African-Americans and considering the hysteria of the moment do not be surprised if they pass something and have no idea how to actually implement it and in that way add to the chaos.

The plan passed its first hurdle yesterday when an African American reparation proposal passed the California Assembly.

From CBS:

A proposal to establish a task force to study and prepare recommendations for how to give reparations to African Americans passed the California Assembly on Thursday.

The bill advanced with a 56-5 vote as protests nationwide over police brutality re-energized the movement for racial justice and activists pressed for sweeping reforms. It is a top priority for California’s Legislative Black Caucus.

If the bill passes the Senate and is signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, eight people with backgrounds in racial justice reforms would lead a study into who would be eligible for compensation and how it should be awarded.

Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, a Democrat from San Diego who wrote the bill, said the study would reiterate California’s history of abetting slavery, even as it joined the union as a “free state” in 1850.

“The discriminatory practices of the past echo into the everyday lives of today’s Californians,” said Weber, who leads the Legislative Black Caucus.

The panel would start meeting no later than June 2021

Congress last June held the first hearing on reparations in over a decade about a bill to study providing compensation to atone for the country’s history of slavery. But the legislation did not make it to a vote.

The federal government has given reparations before. After 120,000 Japanese Americans were held at internment camps during World War II, the U.S. government apologized and in 1988 paid $20,000 to each surviving victim.

“We seem to recognize that justice requires that those who have been treated unjustly need the means to make themselves whole again,” Weber said.

After President Trump Demands Obama Testify – Lindsey Graham Dares To Side With Former President Obama

New evidence has emerged that appears to clear Flynn. Now, the president is going after Obama and the men behind Flynn’s setup.

He is demanding something no president ever has: an investigation into his predecessor.

He made it plain and clear in a message on Twitter.

From Twitter:

If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama. He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!

President Trump called out members of Congress to call President Obama in for testimony. He called the Flynn case (and possibly the related Mueller probe) the “biggest political crime and scandal” in our history.

He called out Sen. Lindsey Graham, who recently said he wouldn’t question Obama. Trump told Graham to no longer be “Mr. Nice Guy” and call him in.

But, to the shock of many Americans, Graham refuses to budge.

From Fox News:

But Graham, in a detailed statement early Thursday afternoon, expressed reluctance to go so far as calling Obama to testify.

He said he is “greatly concerned about the precedent that would be set by calling a former president for oversight.”

Really, Lindsey? The senator once again refused to call Obama in for questioning. He claimed it would set a bad precedent to call in a president “for oversight.”

Uh… what? Shouldn’t Graham be more concerned about the precedents Democrats have set all throughout the Trump administration?

They spied on Carter Page, a Trump campaigner. They set up Flynn, a Trump staffer. They railroaded Brett Kavanaugh. They wasted 2+ years on the Mueller probe.

AND they impeached Trump over a phone call.

Hmm… what should be more troubling to the Republican Graham? Simply requiring Obama to answer a few questions, or the incredible damage Democrats seem to have done to our country?

Is Obama above the law? Is he so precious, he can’t come into the Senate and answer some questions?

Is Graham really concerned about a “precedent” or is he showing his true colors, as yet another D.C. insider?

SHARE if you think Obama should testify.

Republicans Just Accused Nancy Pelosi – They Claim She Actively Cut Them Out Of Reform Bill

In response to the death of George Floyd and nationwide protests, members of Congress are championing a piece of legislation aimed at reforming the police.

The bill would bring significant change to how police departments operate. It will also create a federal oversight committee that investigates reports of police brutality.

Such an important bill, it has been argued, should have bipartisan support.

But it appears House Democrats crafted the bill entirely on their own, without input from their Republican colleagues.

Now, Republicans are saying Pelosi locked them out:

Rumors began swirling the morning of Pelosi’s announcement that Republicans had been blocked from contributing to the immense bill. Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) confirmed that was the case…

“This was a partisan attempt by House Democrats to message to their progressive base and not come up with bipartisan solutions that would actually help unify the country.”

Why It’s Important:

Americans of all backgrounds have called for reforms after the death of George Floyd. The event appears to unite many citizens, despite their political affiliations.

President Trump, as well as notable Republicans, have voiced support for significant changes to how police protect communities.

Attorney General Barr also discussed ending the practice of chokeholds and other potentially deadly moves.

However, it appears Nancy Pelosi rejected the chance at cross-aisle cooperation. Instead, Republicans accuse her of pushing a bill that simply panders to her party’s “progressive” wing.

Such a radical move all but dooms the bill, as Republicans in both chambers of Congress will not vote for it.

Nor will the president back a deeply-partisan piece of legislation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nancy Pelosi and Democrats unveiled a sweeping police reform bill.
  • Republicans accuse Democrats of locking them out from contributing to the bill.
  • Even as Americans clamor for police reform, this bill will most likely not be passed, due to its partisan nature.

Starbucks Bans Employees From Wearing Black Lives Matter Gear And Anything In Support of Organization

Starbucks just shocked the world and their liberal fans with the ban heard round the world. The left and some employees are furious but it seems the company will hold fast.

A leaked memo sent to Starbucks employees last week banned employees from wearing anything in support of Black Lives Matter.

They say wearing such accessories “advocate a political, religious or personal issue” and are a violation of the company’s policies.

From The Hill:

An internal memo sent to Starbucks employees last week specifically warned staffers against wearing accessories or clothes bearing messages in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

The memo, obtained by BuzzFeed News, reminds staffers that such messages are prohibited under the company’s policy against accessories that “advocated a political, religious or personal issue.”

Numerous employees told the news outlet, however, that the company regularly allows or even encourages employees to wear pins in support of LGBTQ equality, especially during Pride Month every June.

“Starbucks LGBTQ+ partners wear LGBTQ+ pins and shirts, that also could incite and create violent experiences amongst partners and customers,” one black transgender employee of the coffee chain told BuzzFeed.

“We have partners who experienced harassment and transphobia/homophobia for wearing their pins and shirts, and Starbucks still stands behind them.”

A video from a top company executive reportedly sent with the memo warned employees that “agitators who misconstrue the fundamental principles” of the movement could seek to “amplify divisiveness” if the messages are displayed in stores.

“We know your intent is genuine and understand how personal this is for so many of us. This is important and we hear you,” the memo read.

A company spokesperson confirmed the memo’s authenticity to BuzzFeed and said that such messages are prohibited “to create a safe and welcoming” environment at Starbucks locations.

“We respect all of our partners’ opinions and beliefs, and encourage them to bring their whole selves to work while adhering to our dress code policy,” the spokesperson said.

Vice President Mike Pence Opens Up, Declares He’s Going After Nancy Pelosi For 2020

With everything we’ve already been through this year, it’s easy to forget that 2020 will be a BIG election year.

Not only is Trump up for re-election, but our entire federal government can be reshaped. Republicans might even retake the House from the Democrats.

Mike Pence is ready to take the fight to Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi.

From Washington Examiner:

“I think, going into this fall, the American people know President Trump knows what it takes to create jobs in this country,” he added…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is about to get a leading role in Trump’s reelection. That’s because the Trump-Pence team is planning to seize on her unpopularity and make her a key foe in the campaign.

Mike Pence said he is all-in for Trump’s re-election, ready to take the message of our recovery economy to the people.

He and the Team Trump will be focusing on Nancy Pelosi, who’s unpopularity will make her a focus of the campaign.

Our Take:

It’s hard not to expect Trump to win in a landslide. Democrats shot themselves in the foot by ditching Sanders and nominating Sleepy Joe.

Will Joe even be viable by November? We’ll see.

The fact that Team Trump will be focusing on Nancy Pelosi suggests a concerted effort to retake the House.

Republicans will make Pelosi the face of the Democratic Party, not Biden. They will remind the country of every time Pelosi failed lus over the last few years.

She promised to work with the administration. She vowed against impeachment. What did she do, though? She impeached Trump.

Not only that, but she also ignored COVID-19 early this year. Only to push radical funding after it struck and blame Trump for it.

She tore up the president’s SOTU address, a move many thought was shameful.

Pelosi promised a lot when she retook the House. She’s delivered zero. That should be a good enough reach to give the GOP a majority.

Americans need to be reminded of who is really tearing this country apart. As chaos ravaged our cities, it was Trump who sent in the National Guard to restore order.

Democrats sat back posted black squares on their social media accounts.

I think Pence has a pretty good angle, come November.

After Virginia Governor Tries To Remove Statue – A Judge Just Dropped His Gavel, Blocking His Order

Riots sparked by “peaceful protests” for George Floyd reached the state of Virginia.

Protesters used the unrest as an opportunity to demand the removal of Confederate monuments, some which have stood in the state for over 100 years.

The Democratic governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, obeyed the demands of protesters by announcing he would remove a statue of Robert E. Lee in Richmond.

But his plans just came to a temporary halt, due to a judge’s order.

Judge Bradley B. Cavedo, according to multiple reports, issued a 10-day injunction halting Northam’s order in the face of a lawsuit, contending that the state had agreed to protect the statue when it annexed the land.

In a court filing obtained by The Washington Post, an attorney for plaintiff William Gregory argues that Virginia agreed to “faithfully guard it and affectionately protect it,” referring to the statue when the state annexed the land from Henrico County in 1890.

Why It’s Important:

In the face of far-left activists’ demands, it appears state and local Democrat leaders are making major changes to their cities.

Demands for the removal of Confederate monuments have existed for years, but it appears the liberal governor of Virginia is using the current climate as excuse to act on it.

Critics frequently question the validity of removing statues and monuments from our country, claiming it erodes our history.

Democrats have ignored such concerns, seemingly more concerned with appealing to the ever-left-leaning wing of their party.

But according to this lawsuit, the governor might not have the authority to remove this statue of Robert E. Lee.

The state vowed to “guard” and “protect it.” A judge might eventually rule that removing the statue violates this agreement.

Key Takeaways:

  • The governor of Virginia bowed to the far-left by announcing the removal of a Confederate statue.
  • A judge blocked the move, in order to proceed with a lawsuit against the state.
  • The case argues the state of Virginia is obligated to protect the monument, as per the original agreement.

Al Sharpton Attacks Trump At Floyd Funeral In Shameless Display of Self Promotion: “Wickedness in high places”

Al Sharpton spoke at George Floyd’s funeral today and put on another shameless display of self-promotion.

If everyone is not careful, Al may just sneak in and try to claim the whole movement, that has without a doubt changed the world, for himself.

That is the way of the hustler in Al, but truth be told even conservatives, after seeing law enforcement abuse their power on Trump believe we need to make some changes and all the way up to Chris Wray too, not just at the local level.

So the time is right but Al wants the credit or at least a spot in the history books and in his desperation, he decided to trash Trump to try to get it.

“God took an ordinary brother from the third ward… who’d been rejected and made him the cornerstone of a movement…”

“All over the world I’ve seen grandchildren of slave masters tearing down slave master statues.”

“You’re trying to figure out how to stop the protests instead of figuring out how to stop the brutality.”

“When there’s no way, the lord will make a way!”

“How are you going to scare a bad cop if bad cops don’t go to jail? Who taught these cops that they can do this to George?

“When they have the highest level of government that excuses it. When some kids wrongly start violence that this family don’t condone and none of us do, the president talks about bringing in the military. But he has not said one word of 8 minutes and 46 seconds of police murder against George Floyd.”

He went on to trash President Trump saying Trump used St. John’s Church as a “prop” for his photo-op.

“You take rubber bullets and tear gas to clear out peaceful protesters and then take a Bible and walk in front of a church and use a church as a prop. Wickedness in high places.”

The 2020 Red Wave Could Be Starting Already – In Virginia, Citizens Just Voted 3 Democrats Out Of Office

Democrats won a majority in Virginia’s government. Soon after, they began to push a radical left-wing agenda.

It got even worse during the pandemic, as their governor took drastic lockdown steps. Extending them, like many other liberal states.

But it looks like their moves may be backfiring. An election was this week. And voters are striking back hard.

From Daily Caller:

Republican candidates Mark Robertson, Amy Darby, and Steve Claffey all joined incumbent Andrea Oakes in a four-seat GOP sweep, WHSV reported. The three incoming council members replaced Democratic incumbents Erik Curren, Ophie Kier, and James Harrington all almost doubled their vote totals from 2016, yet still lost.

Woah. A Virginia city that went for Obama in both elections just ousted Democrat leaders in a landslide result.

Three Democrat incumbents were voted out, replaced by GOP candidates.

What’s amazing is that all three Democrats got more votes from 2016—but still lost.

That means voters came out in force to back the Republican candidates. What does that tell you?

Reports say that Republican voters came out in numbers close to a governor race, a big election.

Our Take:

Why did voters come out in a May election—during the ongoing crisis—to push out these liberals? I think you know the answer.

According to reports, voters were particularly fired up over the state’s aggressive gun control measures. We’ve covered much of what Virginia’s Democrat lawmakers have tried to pull.

On top of that, it looks like voters have gotten sick and tired of the governor’s COVID-19 lockdowns.

That is a trend we’ve seen in recent special elections. Earlier in the month, two special elections in Wisconsin and California went for Republicans.

Republicans flipped a CA blue seat red. Many point to the strict lockdown measures California’s Democratic leadership endorsed.

All across the country, Americans watch Democrats enforce tough orders that cripple the economy.

Meanwhile, conservative states have safely reopened, and it looks like the virus is mostly under control.

There’s a pretty big difference between both party’s leadership during this crisis. And after all the things Virginia’s Democratic leadership has tried to pull—should we be surprised from this turnout?

But what does this mean for the future of the state? What will happen in November, when more elections in VA take place?

Will this trend continue or will the swamp continue to drown Virginia?

SHARE if you are ready to see a Red Wave this November.

Congressman Zeldin Pulls Back Curtain On Schiff – He Just Demanded For Adam To Be Censured And Resign Over Russia

New evidence keeps pouring out of Capitol Hill. And many suspicions seem to be confirmed.

Recently released documents seem to indicate that Adam Schiff and his cohorts knew early on there was little (to no) evidence that Trump worked with Russia.

But the man pushed it anyway, even during the impeachment trial. Now, Rep. Zeldin is demanding consequences.

From Washington Examiner:

Rep. Lee Zeldin demanded Rep. Adam Schiff be stripped of his post as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and resign because of his role in the Russia investigation.

“Adam Schiff should not be the chair of the House Intelligence Committee. His gavel should be removed. He should be censured. He should resign.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin is demanding that Adam Schiff be removed from the House Intelligence Committee and resign from his seat.

Pretty strong demand, sure. But can you blame him?

Schiff has pushed—for years—the story that Trump colluded with Russia. He claimed he had “direct evidence” that it happened.

He even said it was “overwhelming” evidence. Oh, really?

But the very documents he pointed to appear to be all washed up. The many interviews he conducted as chairman of this powerful committee did not uncover evidence.

In fact, many Democrat officials had to admit they never saw evidence to prove Trump’s guilt.

Yet Schiff kept banging the collusion drum. Why?

Zeldin is fed up with Schiff’s games. He wants the man to actually be held accountable for his actions.

That’s pretty rare in D.C. The only way for a Democrat to be held to his deeds, is if he’s voted out of office.

But that shouldn’t stop Americans from speaking out against what they believe is corruption at the highest levels.

We need to demand our leaders to face the consequences of their actions, no matter what.

SHARE if you want Adam Schiff to resign immediately.

Son of Ex-GOP Congressman Arrested For Vandalizing Trump National Golf Course

Florida police have arrested the 18-year old son of former Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney after they caught him defacing a sign at Trump National Golf Club.

He spray painted BLM (Black Lives Matter) on a sign at Trump’s golf course.

The disappointed former Republican congressman said his son “made a mistake” and “would pay the price for it.”

“Hopefully he learns a lesson and moves forward in a positive way,” Rooney added. “He’s gonna plead guilty to it.”

From WPTV:

Thomas Joseph J. Rooney was booked into the county jail early Tuesday. He faces one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief causing property damage of $200 or less, according to court records.

Rooney told Jupiter police he did it “because of unequal treatment in the justice system,” according to the arrest report.

“B.L.M.” is an abbreviation for the “black lives matter” movement.

Jail records indicate Rooney was released on his own recognizance about four hours after being booked into jail.

According to police records, Trump National Golf Club reported the vandalism at 10:50 p.m. Monday.

A security officer at the club said he saw someone on a security camera spray-painting the sign before “walking westbound on Donald Ross Rd.,” the report said.

A Jupiter police officer conducted a traffic stop for a suspected tag light violation nearby. The driver “matched the suspect’s description and a can of black spray paint” was found, according to the police report.

Rooney is scheduled to appear in Palm Beach County court for a July 29 arraignment.
