Last night I voted by mail in California's Republican primary.  I read through all the down-ballot peoples' statements.  At least 75% of them wanted more "green energy," expensive trains to nowhere, condensed high-rise housing, unlimited abortion, etc.  They all sounded like liberals.

One example from the first page I just opened to: someone named Marc Berman (who is already in office now) said, "MAGA extremists are threatening our rights, our democracy, and our planet.  I'm fighting back. As the only candidate endorsed by Planned Parenthood, I will always protect abortion access.  I authorized landmark legislation to ban the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers and lawnmowers, dramatically reducing air pollution. . . And I wrote the law to make California a permanent vote-by-mail state."

These are the kinds of choices we have here as Republicans!

Upon re-reading this, it appears that he is a Democrat.  Don't know why he is included in the Republican primary.

Warning Sounded: ‘Biden has Opened the Floodgates of Hell’:

Back before World War II, there were multiple small, regional conflicts that had developed.  Eventually they merged.

And that is exactly what is developing now, according to an expert on international events, and Joe Biden is allowing it.

“Biden has opened the floodgates of Hell. Although nothing is inevitable, we are fast approaching the point where, as a practical matter, he will not be able to stop China and Russia, directly and through proxies, from merging existing conflicts and turning them into the next global war,” charged Gordon Chang, an expert on China, in a column at The Gatestone Institute.

He pointed out that, “Biden’s foreign policy has collapsed.   National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan effectively admitted that to CNN’s Dana Bash on February 4.”

Then she listed conflict locations and said, “My colleague Peter Bergen smartly pointed out that this conflict involves 10 countries, at least four major terrorist groups, so isn’t this already a regional conflict?”

Sullivan responded, “Well, Dana, what I would say is that these are distinct but related challenges. … For example, what’s happening in the Red Sea is obviously to a certain extent triggered by what’s happening in Gaza, but it’s not the same thing. The Houthis aren’t just hitting ships related to Israel; they’re hitting a lot of different ships from a lot of different countries. . . .

The sequence has been: “Biden’s Afghanistan debacle of August 2021 was quickly followed by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, by China’s and Russia’s fueling insurgencies in North Africa, and by Iran’s attacks on Israel from Gaza and the Golan Heights.”

He noted Jonathan Bass, of InfraGlobal Partners, charged, “Blood now soaks the soil of three continents. More will be spilled. Aggressors are now on killing sprees.”

Chang said Biden’s policies are failing because Biden believes it is possible to integrate “virtually all nations into the rules-based international system.”

Report: Biden’s Job-Growth Boasts Built on Illegal Migration:

President Joe Biden’s jobs record is built on the record hiring of 2.9 million job-seeking migrants — and a persistent 183,000 deficit in the number of Americans with jobs compared to 2019, according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies.

“The number of U.S.-born Americans working [has grown yet] has still not returned to the 2019 pre-Covid level,” he added.

The data does not say that American job-seekers are being unfairly pushed aside while employers only hire migrants for new jobs.

Instead, the data showed that all of Biden’s extra jobs above the 2019 level are held by his migrants — even as U.S.-born workers have not regained all their jobs held in 2019.

There are roughly five million working-age American men who could be hired for the extra jobs in the economy, Camarota told Breitbart News. Employers prefer not to hire them because they are sidelined in jobless towns, or by drug addiction, ill-health, criminal records, apathy, and alienation.

Government policies generally ignore those sidelined Americans. For example, the 5 million discarded Americans are not counted as unemployed because they have not looked for jobs in the last month. Instead, they are described by government officials are not participating in the labor force.

The government policies also allow investors to profit by creating low-productivity jobs for eager migrants that could not be profitable if employers had to pay decent wages to Americans.

This growth-by-poverty strategy is especially clear in the major coastal cities — such as New York. The strategy is backed by the Democratic Party because government workers also can profit by delivering aid and welfare to the underpaid migrants.

Since 1990, the government’s vast inflow of migrants has created a bubble of cheap labor for extra low-productivity jobs in coastland states. That inflow allows government officials to display high job-creation numbers while concealing the massive transfer of high-productivity jobs to China, Mexico, India, and other countries.

The official report reinforces the vast evidence that the federal policy of Extraction Migration shifts family wages and workplace investment toward Wall Streetreal estatecoastal states, and government.  The economic policy also diverts politicians’ focus away from American communities and the “Deaths of Despair” that are dragging down the average age of American deaths.

Judge Arthur Engoron Fines Trump $354M, Bars Him from Running Businesses in NY for 3 Years:

Judge Arthur Engoron fined former Donald Trump and the Trump Organization on Friday in civil a fraud case for more than $350 million and barred him from serving as an officer or director of any New York corporation for three years.

New York Attorney General Letitia James sought to essentially bankrupt Trump by calling for a $370 million fine and a lifetime of from the real estate industry in New York State. James claimed Trump committed financial fraud.

Trump plans to appeal the ruling. “This is a case that should have never been brought, and I think we should be entitled to damages,” Trump said during closing arguments.

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley called the ruling “confiscatory, extreme, and abusive.”

BREAKING REPORT: Truckers Plan to Stop Shipments to NYC in Response to Political Hack Judge Engoron’s $238 Million Ruling Against Trump and His Sons (VIDEO):

Truckers to the rescue—again.

Truckers bravely exposed some of the worst COVID shutdowns in the world when they parked their trucks in Ottowa to protest the iron-fisted approach used against citizens by the Justin Trudeau regime. Truckers in the US showed solidarity for their Canadian neighbors and helped block shipping between the US and Canada in Detroit, Michigan. Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who was being considered for Joe Biden’s VP, quickly threatened arrest for truckers who dared to block the Ambassador Bridge.

American truckers are now reportedly threatening to stop deliveries into New York City over the grotesque $364 million judgment against President Trump and his sons Don Jr. and Eric by partisan hack Judge Engoron on Friday.

Aside from first responders, is there another profession in the United States that proudly wears patriotism on its sleeves like the American trucker?

An American trucker who goes by “Chicago Ray” had this to say in a video he shared on social media, where he explained why truckers across America are planning to stop delivering to NYC.
“I’ve been on the radio talking to drivers for the last hour and fifteen minutes, and I’ve talked to at least ten drivers going the other way. I’m heading down from South Wisconsin. And they’re [other truckers] gonna start refusing loads to New York City, starting on Monday for NYC. I talked to about three guys that I work with who texted the boss and told him they’re not going to New York City.

I don’t know how far across the country this is or how many truckers are gonna start denying loads to go to New York City, but I’ll tell you what—you **** around and find out!”

Truckers are for Trump. We’re like 95% – 96% out here—-all Trump.

(VIDEO) East Palestine Residents React to Biden’s Visit OVER One Year After Toxic Chemical Explosion, Say They are Still Suffering from Health Issues, Worried About “Cancer Cluster” – “He Has NOT Helped Us. He’s Too Little Too Late.”:

Residents of East Palestine, Ohio, yesterday spoke to reporters as Joe Biden made a fly-by photo-op appearance in the town more than one year after a devastating train derailment spilled hazardous materials that were burned into the atmosphere.

Local Kayla Miller reacted to his visit, “He has not helped us. He’s too little too late.”

Misti Allison, who met with Biden on Friday, also raised concerns about “long-term health implications” as many residents still suffer from health complications caused by the incident. Alison asks, “Is this going to be a cancer cluster in 10, 20, 30 years?”

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Biden also was greeted by angry protestors. 

He couldn’t care less when the incident happened, so what was he doing there now? Even if Biden takes some form of action by issuing a disaster declaration, as some have reportedly called for, why now and not one year ago?

On Feb. 3, 2023, just before 9 p.m. Eastern, a Norfolk Southern train derailed near East Palestine, Ohio, a small Midwestern town of about 4,800 people near the Ohio border with Pennsylvania.

At least 11 of the train cars that derailed contained hazardous materials. Several cars were carrying vinyl chloride, a cancer-causing substance.

Government officials decided to burn the chemicals rather than let them drain onto the ground. The chemical explosion was enormous. The chemicals formed a gigantic toxic plume over the region.

The waters in East Palestine, Ohio, were thoroughly polluted with toxic chemicals, and thousands of fish were reportedly killed by the fallout.

Residents were also reporting that pets and livestock were suddenly dying, and humans were experiencing rashes and headaches following the explosion.

Remember, it was President Trump who visited East Palestine last February, not Joe Biden. Trump stepped up immediately after the disaster to provide food, clean water, and hope to residents of East Palestine after the chemical spill, which polluted groundwater and streams.

Yet, Joe Biden spoke yesterday during his first visit to East Palestine since the train derailment and falsely claimed, “My Administration was on the ground within hours… to make sure you have everything you need.”
A disengaged Biden, heavily slurring his words and even at one point blowing his nose, spoke for a whopping seven minutes and struggled to read his script.  Biden’s handlers then forced the press out of the room as they tried to ask him why it took a full year to visit the town and why he even came at this point.  [Hint: It's an election year.]

California Senate Candidate Floats Radical Bump to Minimum Wage, Smugly Tells Critics to ‘Just Do the Math’:

Minimum wage jobs are not meant to be lifelong careers that can support an entire family. Rather, they are an opportunity for young people and others with limited skills to get a foot in the door.

But California Democrat Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who is running for Senate, believes burger flippers should be making $50 an hour, according to the New York Post.

That’s more than the average U.S. salary of teachers, firefighters or police officers.

Lee defended her previous support for a $50 minimum wage by citing studies showing that an income of six figures is barely enough for a family of four to get by in high-cost-of-living areas like the San Francisco Bay Area.

The result would be layoffs or shutdowns due to skyrocketing labor costs, and you can just about say goodbye to mom-and-pop stores or value meals for struggling families. After California announced a minimum wage hike to $20 starting in April, Pizza Hut announced layoffs of 1,200 delivery drivers in Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties, according to Reason.

The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. California’s minimum wage ranges from $16 to $20 per hour, depending on location, according to the Post.
