Jerry Brown thinks climate change is as serious as WWII

Outgoing California governor Jerry Brown thinks fighting climate change is as important as fighting the Nazis in World War II.  A few snippets from his Meet the Press interview:

California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown warned that America and the rest of the world are falling behind in the fight against climate change and likened the challenge to fighting the Nazis in World War II.

In an interview for Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” the outgoing governor called on President Donald Trump to take the lead in addressing the issue. “Instead of worrying about tariffs, I’d like to see the president and the Congress invest tens of billions in renewable energy, in more-efficient batteries, to get us off fossil fuel as quickly as we can,” Brown said.

“I would point to the fact that it took Roosevelt many, many years to get America willing to go into World War II and fight the Nazis. Well, we have an enemy, though different, but perhaps, very much devastating in a similar way. And we’ve got to fight climate change. And the president’s got to lead on that.”

And further:

Trump’s lack of urgency on the issue exemplifies the partisan divide on climate change. A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released this month found that more than 70 percent of Democrats believe climate change is both “serious” and requires “immediate action,” but that just 15 percent of Republicans felt the same way.

Overall, people are growing more and more convinced of the urgency of the issue—45 percent of all Americans said they eel that sense of urgency, the highest since the poll started to ask the question in 1999.

Do you think maybe more people are being convinced of the urgency of the issue because you, the mainstream media, sensationalize and exaggerate?  Because you use fear-mongering to push your agenda?  Do you think maybe that has something to do with it?  Check out some of the #climate change posts to see how out of control their lying is.  The reality is they have no idea how good or bad the climate really is.  Their models are consistently wrong.

Think about how absurd and utterly despicable it is to compare climate change to the events of World War II.  Think about the hubris and/or utter disregard for the reactions of people to these BS statements.  It’s downright evil to peddle this line of thinking.  It is pure fear-mongering to even suggest this is as bad as that time more than 60 or so MILLION people died.  He’s essentially asking us to destroy our economy by investing billions of dollars to combat an alleged problem we’re not even sure we have.  And sorry, polling Republicans and Democrats doesn’t make the problem all of a sudden appear or disappear.  It really does not matter what anyone thinks…it does not change whether there is a problem or not.

If the Democrats really, truly, cared about climate change, they would immediately curb all immigration to first world countries.  If the “carbon footprint” thing is still the way they’re measuring our effects (it will probably change when they realize this doesn’t really help their case as much as they hope) then why would you import more people into 1st world countries, where the carbon footprint is vastly bigger?  The sooner one realizes that today’s liberals contradict themselves on nearly every issue, the sooner one can quit wasting their time arguing with them…arguments where facts don’t matter because they fall on deaf ears or because they only understand rhetoric.

Because Californians aren’t taxed enough already…

More madness from California:

California’s Public Utilities Commission is considering a plan that would charge mobile phone users a fee for sending text messages, according to recent public law filings. 

The proposal is partially due to landline-era legislation coupled with the fact the people are shifting patterns away from voice calls in favor of texting.

California is determining whether surcharges and user fees on text messaging comply with Public Purpose Programs, which use tax revenue to make telecommunications services accessible to low-income residents. The programs, which date to the 1930s, were given a face-lift in the late 1990s, allowing individual states to impose requirements to preserve what’s referred to as a “universal service.”

During the rise of the internet, the telecommunications industry was able to elude these taxes by offering “information services” like email and web browsing.

However, as mobile phone users shifted their behavior away from making phone calls, voice call revenue for these state programs has dropped by about a third, from $16.5 billion in 2011 to $11.3 billion in 2017, according to law filings.

Meanwhile, the budget for subsidizing poorer users has risen by almost half, from $670 million in 2011 to $998 million in 2017, the filings said.

The wireless industry argues added fees would put carriers at a higher disadvantage since messaging services like Apple’s iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger would not be charged under the proposed legislation.

It never ends with this state.  But it is entirely unsurprising.  Like every socialist s***hole country California would tax the air you breathe if they could (don’t worry, that’ll come soon too).  As I wrote last week Californians are leaving in droves.  And you wonder why.

It is always far beyond the point of no return before failed states recognize that it’s too late to turn the ship around.  The parasites will suck you dry before letting up.  The middle class here cannot handle it anymore, hence why they are leaving in record numbers.  At what point will they realize it is a suicidal policy to continue to drain the middle class to help the “underprivileged” time and time and time and time and time and time again.  Perhaps the underprivileged should not be buying and using smartphones they cannot afford to maintain?  There’s a thought.  People somehow survived without smartphones before.  It is not a God given right to have one.

The more you strip away responsibility from a person the more you take away from their self worth.  What drive does a person have to do anything when the state gives you money, gives you food, pays your bills, makes you dependent.  That’s one of their ultimate goals anyways; to make everyone dependent on them for everything.  You are enslaved at that point.

Not only that, but policies like these are what continues to foster resentment and anger between the classes.  You think the middle class will want to continue this lunacy of giving people a free ride when they are struggling so much themselves to make ends meet?  Of course, they want to sow that discord.  That is entirely the point.

California: A Peek into America’s Future

California is lost.  For all intents and purposes it will never be able to be the California of a generation or two ago that was a booming economic stalwart where one could raise a family and live a successful middle class life.  This is the sad reality we face today.  It may be able to recover some of its past glory if it splinters into two or three separate states, but that would still be entirely different than the past California experience.  While California is gone, it would behoove us to learn the lessons of its demise while there’s still time for the rest of the United States.

Some may argue that California today is great just the way that it is.  That it’s better today than ever.  So it may be useful to mention some facts to support the notion that California is in worse shape today than ever.  The reality is that California is no longer a state one can even afford to raise a family.  They have the highest poverty rate in the country.  The middle class has been completely hollowed out, and the divide between the ultra rich and the ultra poor is only widening.  CNBC called it the second least affordable state to live in 2018:

These days, making ends meet in California is harder than ever. Consider the housing shortage, which has reached the crisis stage. A 2016 report by the McKinsey Global Institute found 50 percent of California households cannot afford the cost of housing in their local market. It is basic supply and demand. The average home price in San Francisco is nearly $1.2 million. A two-bedroom apartment in or near the City by the Bay — if you can find one — will rent for more than $4,000 a month.

2018 Cost of Living score: 2 out of 50 points (Top States Grade: F)

Most expensive area: San Francisco-Redwood City-South San Francisco

Average home price: $1,182,092

Half gallon of milk: $2.72

Ribeye steak: $12.94

Monthly energy bill: $235.44

Doctor visit: $142.61

California has also seen a decline in their educational system.  A few facts via USA Today:

35. California

  • High school graduation rate: 83.0% (21st lowest)
  • Public school spending: $9,417 per pupil (8th lowest)
  • 8th grade NAEP proficiency: 27.1% (math) 28.4% (reading)
  • Adults with at least a bachelor’s degree: 32.9% (14th highest)
  • Adults 25-64 with incomes at or above national median: 51.7% (21st highest)

California has the largest network of public schools in the country — and also one of the worst-performing. Only 29.2% of fourth graders in the state are proficient in math, and only 27.8% are proficient in reading — each the third lowest share of any state. While low, the fourth-grade reading proficiency rate is much improved from only a few years ago. Between 2003 and 2015, fourth-grade reading proficiency increased by 7.0 percentage points, far outpacing the 4.9 percentage point improvement across the U.S. as a whole.

Children who are raised speaking English as a second language often face additional academic challenges at American public schools. Only 64.1% of California students have parents who are fluent English speakers, the smallest share of any state in the country.

There is also serious decay in its infrastructure, and massive budget spending with ever increasing taxes.  Objectively speaking California is worse off today than it was a generation or two ago.  And it’s no surprise that people are fleeing California at an alarming rate.  Nearly 140,000 residents moved out of California alone in 2017.

Why?  What has changed?  While some of these facts may be hard to swallow for some people it is imperative we look at the data and try to learn from it.  The rest of the country is already on the same trend as California, but has a much better shot at rectifying the situation before it is past the point of no return.

As painful a pill as this may be to swallow for some, demographic changes are the key driver behind California’s downward trend.  California is a majority-minority state, meaning that no race or ethnicity is the majority of the population of California.  The Latino population is said to have become the majority ethnicity, having surpassed non-Hispanic whites sometime in 2014 or 2015.

California’s population as a whole has sky rocketed in the past few decades, with many of these newcomers coming predominantly from Mexico.

The problems arising from this demographic shift and overall added population growth have been devastating.  An additional element comes in the form of cheap overseas labor.  The added number of people, coupled with cheap labor from Mexico and overseas, has simultaneously wrecked wages for Californians which has contributed to the hollowing out of the middle class.  Additionally, the increase in people has not been supplemented with the much needed increase in new housing, which has resulted in sky-rocketing rents and an inability to afford purchasing a new home.

But these are only a few of the deleterious effects of this influx of people.  The type of people moving to California now are vastly different than a generation ago.  The reality is many of the immigrants now flocking to California come from Central and South America.  Like it or not, it is a fact that Hispanics of the Mexican and Central/South American variety have a lower average IQ than white people.  Again, this is not an attack on them for this, it is just a fact.  I highly recommend reading The Bell Curve for an exhaustive look into this.  There is a strong link between IQ and average income, and links closely to the use of government assistance.  In sum, on average those making less money also have on average lower IQs.  And we know that lower income people tend to rely on government assistance more.  This is reflected in the data.

This is a double whammy for California.  The Center for Immigration Studies recently put out a study that shows that more than 7 in 10 households headed by an immigrant are on taxpayer-funded welfare.  There is a hollowing out of the middle class and an attack on wages, coupled with ever increasing number of welfare recipients.  This is not a recipe for success.

That’s not to say we shouldn’t help these people.  No, they must be shown compassion.  IQ is not something they can control.  But we must also be honest and recognize that they will not be able to be helped if the tax-paying middle class is run out of the state.  As with a humanitarian crisis, levels of help must be tempered to ensure the population doing the helping isn’t overwhelmed by those in need; a case of drowning while trying to rescue others.

But as this shift continues so too will the mentality of the populace within the state change as well.  It’s not hard to picture a scenario, and we’re already seeing this today, where the very policies that are killing the state are the ones now being pushed and voted for by the same populace that has overrun the “native” population there.  And this makes sense.  Politicians are often voted on based on in-group preferences of race and ethnicity.  It only makes sense that as the Latino population grows they will try and vote in more Latinos.  Whereas whites tend to vote more liberally not on the color of the politician’s skin (generally speaking, of course), when having the option minorities will often vote for their own minority.  This is not at all surprising and consistent with human nature on the whole.  This potentially will change for whites as more whites realize they are becoming a minority, but as of right now it is not the case.  The election of President Obama is a good example of this.  Of course politicians will continue to push these awful policies if it’s what will get them re-elected.  And it’s also a driving force behind why it’s so difficult to enact any sort of immigration laws in this state.  As it becomes more majority-minority this will only continue.

What can the rest of the country learn about the decline of California?  One, demographics matter.  A systematic replacement of a population with an average IQ hovering around 100 with those from countries with an average IQ of 80-90 will not bode well in the long run.  Further, an influx of cheap, unskilled, labor will hurt the wages of those already living in the state, and in particular hit the lower and middle classes the hardest as they are the ones who generally will lose out on the jobs that are being taken by the new arrivals.  Two, as these wages begin to decline, you’ll have more people relying on welfare to make ends meet, as well as having additional people on welfare that never contributed in the first place.  The burden on the remaining taxpayers will only be that much more.  Three, this increase in population will also raise housing costs if new housing cannot keep up with the influx.

These are just a few of the devastating effects of unchecked immigration into a state or country.  It doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface on things like added stress to infrastructure, a regression back to tribalism of sorts as more and more diverse populations are forced next to each other, or the breakdown of the community from this as well.  Most people want to help those in need.  But do not be sold or guilted by the lie that unchecked numbers of immigrants coming to a city or state near you is good for you or your family.  It’s too late for California to reverse this trend, but this is not the case in many places in America.  Demographics is destiny.

California election fraud is crazy

There is no bottom to how low the Democrats (mostly globalists) will sink to steal an election.  California recently changed their election laws in 2016 that essentially allowed for ballot harvesting.  Now, magically, hundreds of thousands of votes can appear after election day and swing an entire election weeks later, an additional 250,000 votes in this case.  Ask yourself what is more likely: that a county traditionally red, and red the night of the election, magically turns blue weeks later because only Democrats in that county voted by this new rule.  Or election fraud.  This isn’t difficult to see.  They are scared enough now that they’re getting sloppy and cannot cover for it as well anymore.  Or they’re just really stupid.

OC

Election fraud of a Democrat miracle?

Stupid, of course, unless they’re allowed to get away with it.  I’m hoping beyond hopes President Trump has something big up his sleeve that he’s waiting to use after certain events transpire.

IMG_2500

The Democrats very clearly meddled in elections in at least Georgia, Florida, and California.  God knows how many other elections went under the radar that they meddled with too.  Do you feel content thinking they legitimately won all of those House seats fairly?

Many think the Huber testimony tomorrow is going to blow the lid off something much bigger and have far reaching implications.  Perhaps that’s what President Trump is waiting for before directly addressing the rampant voter fraud we have in this country.  He better make it a priority soon, otherwise even though he should absolutely steamroll in 2020 he will find himself shocked when he loses several states he probably honestly won in landslides.  If they can swing votes that were greater than 5% for the Republican candidate and get away with it then the game is over.

California forces boards to have women members

California continues its crusade to social engineer.  In their latest battle nobody asked for, they are now making it a requirement to have at least one board member that is female by the end of 2019.  Via Reuters:

The law would mandate at least two female directors by the end of 2021 if the company has five directors and three women if the company has six or more directors. Violators face fines of at least $100,000 and up to $300,000 for multiple violations of the statute.

“Given all the special privileges that corporations have enjoyed for so long, it’s high time corporate boards include the people who constitute more than half the ‘persons’ in America,” California Governor Jerry Brown said in a statement announcing the bill’s signing.

Silicon Valley tech companies started disclosing workforce diversity figures in 2014, but progress at the top has been slow, underscoring the challenge of transforming cultures that critics say are too homogenous, white and male dominated.

Yes, the ever dangerous and terrible position of having a board that’s too white and male dominated in a country that was founded and cultivated largely by white males.  Definitely can’t have that!

They aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.  They want to replace white men.  Period.  Not that is has to be said, but deliberately placing arbitrary quotas that have nothing to do with job performance or logic is a dangerous precedent, and ultimately fruitless and destructive.  And why is this only a problem in corporate board rooms?  I notice a rather large absence of diversity of NBA basketball teams.  Should we place quotas to require more white people on NBA teams?  After all, they are not proportionally represented on a NBA roster as compared to their proportion of the population.

No, of course that would never happen.  Nor should it.  The free market, or what small idea of the free market we think we have is, only works when it’s allowed to run naturally.  Which means allowing companies to hire whomever they want and put whomever they want on their boards.  If women feel so slighted, here’s an idea, how about start more companies?  Yes, I know, patriarchy.  Privilege.  Victim mindset.

This will not end at corporate board rooms, nor will it end with just a quota for women on corporate boards.  Eventually boards will need to be 20, 50, 100 people large to accomodate all of the requirements to have x amount of women, x amount of Native Americans, x amount of African-Americans, etc etc etc.  Micro-managing into oblivion.

You can get a mastectomy at 13 in California

“Professional guidelines and clinical practice should recommend patients for chest surgery based on individual need rather than chronologic age.”  That is the conclusion the authors of this study have drawn after surgically removing the breasts of 2 13-year old transmales (girls) and 5 14-year olds.  Via bioedge.org:

According to the authors, who are based at the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, “All postsurgical participants (68 of 68; 100%) affirmed the statement, ‘It was a good decision to undergo chest reconstruction.’”

Since the girls were overwhelmingly positive about their operation, the authors contend that “Professional guidelines and clinical practice should recommend patients for chest surgery based on individual need rather than chronologic age.”

However, it’s unclear whether the girls (transmales) had enough time for a mature evaluation of their life-changing decision. For nearly all the 68 participants in the survey, only two years had passed. To affirm that there were “very low rates of regret” among minors seems a bit premature. For instance, a study of women who had a single or double mastectomy found that they were quite unrealistic about life after surgery. “Patients generally thought mastectomy would be worse than it was, and they thought reconstruction would be better than it was,” said the lead author.

The other side of the coin is that the “chest dysphoria” of “transmasculine minors” was said to be so severe that it affected their health. They often resorted to chest binding, which is associated with “pain, rib fractures, light-headedness, weakness, skin infection” and other ailments.

This seems to be the justification for the authors’ conclusion that “Youth should be referred for chest surgery based on their individual needs, rather than their age or time spent taking medication. Individualized, patient-centered care plans should be considered the standard of care for all transgender adolescents, and referrals should be made accordingly.”

So the conclusion of these “professionals” is that we should listen to what children think is the best thing for them regardless of their age.  If a girl thinks she’s a boy and thinks she should have her breasts remove we should listen to her.  Given that you can already lose custody of your child if you refuse hormone treatment it shouldn’t come as a surprise that California is allowing this.  California, forever on the bleeding edge of all things twisted and decadent.

It cannot be stated often enough that children need time to mature and grow and figure themselves out before making drastic, permanent, life-altering decisions like this.   Teens going through puberty are never sure about what they want or who they are.  That’s the entire thrust of what going through puberty is all about, figuring yourself out.  To jump to the conclusion that you are really the opposite sex before even going through this process is premature and downright dangerous.  And don’t think that this isn’t deliberate.  What they teach in schools today, and how they indoctrinate our children, all ties into this increase in transgender surgeries and dysphoria in general.

Primum non nocere, first do no harm, should especially be the primary objective when dealing with teens who have their entire lives ahead of them.  Instead of addressing the root cause of why teens may be this confused about their gender, primarily the Marxist indoctrination they’re receiving in schools, these physicians seem to be skipping all of that and jumping to extreme conclusions and recommendations.  They’d rather prescribe all sorts of psychotropic medications or perform irreversible surgeries than try milder, less intrusive, methods first.  Or, here’s an idea, how about prescribing “watchful waiting” and see if the patient doesn’t have second thoughts a few years down the road?

As the article rightly points out, the follow up for these patients is not nearly long enough out, 2 years or less, for them to see if they’re truly happy or not.  I’d be interested to see a follow up 5, 10, 20 years from now, if the patients are still alive.  Sadly, transgender regret is a very real thing, and their suicide rates are also much higher than the rest of the population.

California looking to blacklist companies working on border wall

Don’t the Democrats like to preach that they are the party of tolerance and inclusion?  Of course we know this is a lie.  They’re tolerant so long as you agree with exactly everything they say.  Toe the party line or suffer the consequences.  Via The Washington Free Beacon:

As President Donald Trump renews his battle with Congress to fund his multi-billion-dollar border wall with Mexico, Democratic lawmakers and liberal groups in California have stepped up their campaigns to blacklist businesses involved in building the border wall.

San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.

The majority Democratic San Diego City Council, in a 3 to 1 vote last week, directed city officials to draft an ordinance requiring contractors competing for city projects to disclose any past and present work, as well as planned bids, on parts of Trump’s planned border wall.

“Trump’s border wall does nothing to promote San Diego’s robust economy and our positive international ties with Mexico,” Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Our region is stronger because of our cross-border exchange with our neighbors to the south.”

I’m all for freedom of choice for consumers to choose who they support and buy products from.  But this is not that.  As the left pushes further to the extreme left and outright Communism, they will continue to ramp up government intervention and control.  Centralized planning is a core tenet of Communism.  And again none of their policies respect a diversity of opinions.  If you do not agree with them they will black ball you and try and ruin your life.  Is it really fair to the construction workers of these countries who are trying to put food on their tables for their families to suffer because the feral left want to take their toys and walk away?  How tolerant!

Nearly 100 out of the estimated 600 companies who have competed for border-wall contracts so far are reportedly based in California, and 10 percent of those firms are Hispanic-owned, according to the Guardian.

I think it’s funny how much they’re willing to hurt their fellow Californians in this blatant attempt to railroad and delay essential infrastructure for border security.  Remember also how much we’re told how racist the wall is.  Sorry, but many legal Hispanics also agree with better border security and lower levels of even legal immigration.  You cannot have a country if you have porous borders that allow in drugs, human trafficking, and a multitude of future welfare recipients on the public dole with zero skin in the game.  As much as Ms Bry wants to obfuscate the truth about our relationship with Mexico, it is possible to control your border and still maintain friendly relations.

Santa Barbara to ban….plastic straws

In a move to make California coastal elites feel good about themselves the city of Santa Barbara is moving to ban plastic straws, with JAIL TIME as a potential sentence for repeat offenders.  Via Fox News:

A California coastal city has become the latest municipality to ban plastic straws, enacting what is potentially the strictest plastic prohibition in the country.

Santa Barbara earlier this month passed the ordinance authorizing hefty fines and even a possible jail sentence for violators who dole out plastic straws at restaurants, bars and other food establishments.

According to the ordinance, violators on their first offense will be given a written warning notice. But the second time a purveyor of plastic straws defies the ban is when the heavy hand of the law could clamp down.

In that case, the ordinance cites penalties from the city’s municipal code for a “fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), imprisonment for a term not exceeding six (6) months.”

In comparison, Seattle, which in the beginning of July became the first major city in the U.S. to ban plastic straws, only fines businesses $250 per offense.

Not that I’d expect anything less from the Communists running this state.  This isn’t the first time California has passed stupid plastic rules.  In 2014, California voted to add a 10 cent fee for every plastic bag purchased in stores.  For various reasons it didn’t go into effect until years later in some cities.  It went into effect in 2016 in San Diego and due to this homeless people began defecating in the streets rather than into what used to be free plastic bags.  This led to a hepatitis A outbreak in San Diego.  Quite the virtue signal backfire.

Further down in the article:

On Tuesday, the board of supervisors in California’s second-largest city, San Francisco, gave unanimous approval to a measure banning plastic straws alongside carryout containers and wrappers treated with fluorinated chemicals.

Supervisor Katy Tang called the negative environmental impact of single-use plastics astronomical.

“San Francisco has been a pioneer of environmental change, and it’s time for us to find alternatives to the plastic that is choking our marine ecosystems and littering our streets,” she said in a statement.

The legislation requires a second approval, which is expected next week, and the ban would go into effect July 1, 2019, along with a new requirement to make napkins, utensils and other to-go accessories available only upon request, unless a self-serve station is available where people can take what they need.

California has a lot of problems.  Plastic straws is not one of them.  It’s hard not to chuckle at San Francisco being “a pioneer of environmental change” given their massive shit problem at the moment.  Probably not the environmental change they’re dreaming about.

Illegals given right to vote in San Francisco

More head scratching, treasonous news out of San Francisco.  Via ABC7:

Monday the Department of Elections Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th 2018 election. The measure passed in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent following two failed previous attempts.

San Francisco is the first city in the state to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections.

“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1.

One of the sacred privileges and duties of citizens is the right to vote.  As with all things involving illegals, the left will try to rationalize this away or make it sound small.  “It’s just local education elections.”  It’s non-stop creep.  Local school elections today.  Mayor tomorrow.  Governor the next day.  President next month.

Sorry, Sandra.  There’s a reason these people have historically been denied a voice.  When you commit a crime of this magnitude, generally you do not deserve, and most definitely do not have the RIGHT, to exercise these kinds of liberties.  The level of either sheer stupidity or naivety is truly mind boggling.  Or they are legitimately traitors looking to destroy this nation.  Either way it needs to stop.  Do they really think this will end well for the natives?  Those who built this country?  What a sweet deal these people have.  Not paying their fair share of taxes, shouldering none of the burden of paying for health care, defending the country in wars, or any other of our duties, all the while reaping the benefits of our schools, hospitals, and it’s even looking like they’ll be able to choose who runs the country too.

Think about the ridiculous direction this is going.  Illegals, people who by definition do not belong here, can now vote, and some day will likely be able to vote for their own into office.  It’s already happening.  Legitimately there may be a day where illegals will run the country, voted in by their own.

New initiative hopes to reverse bill that allows illegals to obtain driver’s licenses in California and end Sanctuary Cities

Via The Sacramento Bee:

An initiative that would reverse a law that allows immigrants residing in California illegally to obtain driver’s licenses has been cleared to begin gathering signatures for the 2020 ballot.

The proposal also seeks to eliminate the current “sanctuary state” law and end automatic voter registration practices in California. Don Rosenberg, the main proponent of the proposal and a staunch opponent of illegal immigration, said he believes the plan will increase public safety, reduce voter fraud and prevent traffic fatalities.

More than 1 million illegal immigrants in California have been issued driver’s licenses since Assembly Bill 60 took effect in 2015.

“The line that AB 60 will make the roads safer was totally bull,” Rosenberg said. “It is not safer. It was a complete lie.”

It’s always weird posting these stories.  A lot of people wonder how it was ever passed into law in the first place, understandably so.  California seems to always make the worst possible decision for its legal constituents and caters to a population that doesn’t belong here in the first place.  Sure, hit and runs apparently decreased since allowing illegals to have a license.  Deaths increased, possibly because more of them are now on the road.  Was appeasing them with the ability to get a license a better solution than just enforcing the damn laws on the books and arresting and deporting them instead?  Of course not.

The sanctuary state business is a whole different level of appalling.  Again, another issue that is stupefying to ever believe this bill was ever signed in the first place.  I highly encourage those who can to sign the petition to get this on the 2020 ballot.  It is time sensitive to get the signatures.  More information to come, but you can stay up to date on where to sign and if you want to donate to help the cause here.
