California Trains Running Even Slower
Due to Homeless on Tracks

Breitbart California, by Chriss W. Street

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/16/2018 11:30:11 AM

California’s terrible commuter rail service speeds and on-time performance are growing worse, due to homeless camps near the tracks and transients wandering on the rails. The Sacramento Bee reports that train engineers are warning system operators and passengers that homeless people wandering on the rails have been hit, and engineers have been forced to slow and make high-speed emergency stops to avoid hitting transients. But even with Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor passenger service, which operates between Sacramento and Silicon Valley, combining with the Union Pacific Railroad freight service on adjacent tracks to report homeless encampments to law enforcement, California’s homeless have

What #1 said. Attach cowcatchers to the front to fling them off the tracks.

Let´s try this again:

If the homeless, or anyone else, don´t see the folly of wandering around railroad tracks, they probably won´t live much longer anyway. How about some common sense?

the Republik of Minnesota has been foisting light rail on us for the last ten years..
gang members going to the Mall of Amerika are pretty much the only riders..
now, the BLMers are stopping even THOSE trains for their "protests"..
and.. the Reds want to bring HIGH SPEED rail here as well..

Last week there was a story on the homeless taking over the train stations, and sometimes camping out on the train cars themselves. My guess is the average citizen will avoid all public transportation if at all possible.

Seems like an entirely self-limiting "problem". Bring back the "homeless catchers" on the front and run the speeds back up.

Yet another reason why high-speed rail will never work in this country - too many stupid people hanging around the tracks.

The answer is Elon Musk´s Hyperloop in which passengers ride in a fully enclosed depressurized tube. That is, until it collides with a shopping cart.

The illegals, hobos, drug addicts, and neer do wells have figured out that the train tracks are outside the jurisdiction of the state and local police.
La Raza has been instructing the Reconquista forces to camp alongside the tracks for quite a while.
They are positioned to completely disrupt all train service by having tens of thousands of them move onto the tracks.
Much of the food you eat comes from CA, this would quickly create major problems for the entire country.

When I had a bum starting to camp out in front of my house, I was told, "it´s not illegal to be homeless." Well, no, but isn´t it illegal to have piles of garbage strewn about on the publix right-of-way? Isn´t it illegal to have human sewage being discharged all over? I know it is if a homeowner tried to pull that carp!

There needs to be a separate process for dealing true homeless (productive members of society, willing to live in a home) and these vagrants (usually drug addicted and often struggling with mental health issues). They´re truly completely different problems.

After a few get ground to hamburger under the wheels, my bet is they´ll not be a problem anymore. I maintain that trains should not be legally responsible for idiots on their tracks.

#16, you should have run the sprinklers frequently, and perhaps get one of those super powerful horns on the can of pressurized gas.
A couple of shots every hour or two would probably help them to decide to move elsewhere.

Lots of ways to make them WANT to leave.

It sounds like the homeless are taking over. This is an insane world we live in..... Insane state I live in. God help us. I like the cow catcher idea. So many of the things we are forced to put up with now, would´ve never been even thought of when I was young. Wow. If someone used your lawn for a bathroom, they´d end up in the looney bin or drunk tank!

On Thursday night the much anticipated Comey memos were finally released by the DOJ to Congress. The memos show that Comey has not been honest with the public about his meetings with Trump. The memos also show that Comey likely broke the law. In one exchange Comey told Trump that CNN was pressuring him about the anti-Trump dossier. Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller reported:Former FBI Director James Comey wrote in a newly released memo that pressure from news outlets — “CNN in particular” — convinced him to brief then-President-Elect Donald Trump on the infamous Steele dossier during a meeting

   

 



 
Book: In Private, Hillary Would Always Say
That Trump Supporters Were ‘Deplorable’

Daily Caller, by Justin Caruso    Original Article

Hillary Clinton was infamous for referring to many of President Trump’s supporters as “deplorable” during a speech in September 2016. A new book reports that it wasn’t a one-time thing — in private, Clinton referred to Trump supporters as deplorable many times. The Daily Beast reports that a new book about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign from New York Times reporter Amy Chozick states that Clinton joked about Trump supporters being deplorable many times with her rich friends. “Hillary always broke down Trump supporters into three baskets,” Chozick said, saying that one third of them were deplorable racists and sexists.

‘Politically Motivated Attack’ on Trump
Breitbart Big Government, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2018 3:49:49 PM     Post Reply
A plurality of voters, a full 42 percent, believe that the book written by disgraced former FBI Director James Comey is a “politically motivated attack on the president,” according to a poll released by Rasmussen Reports. Despite glowing press coverage 24/7 over the last week, an anemic 40 percent believe Comey’s book is an “accurate portrayal of his dealings with Trump.” Nineteen percent remain undecided. This terrible number comes on the heels of a poll from earlier this week that showed a plurality of 46 percent want Comey prosecuted for leaking classified information. In other words, a plurality of voters

President Donald Trump kept up his war of words with James Comey on Friday, calling the former FBI director’s new book “third rate,” and suggesting it’s unfair that Comey is profiting. "So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written)," Trump said in a Twitter posting. "Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don’t think so!" Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in December to lying to

Former FBI Director James Comey wrote in a newly released memo that pressure from news outlets — “CNN in particular” — convinced him to brief then-President-Elect Donald Trump on the infamous Steele dossier during a meeting at Trump Tower on Jan. 6, 2017. “I said media like CNN had [the dossier] and were looking for a news hook,” Comey wrote in a memo just after briefing Trump about the salacious allegations in the dossier. “I said it was inflammatory stuff that they would get killed for reporting straight up from the source reports,” he added. Four days after that meeting,

Former President Barack Obama urged on liberal student activist groups in a special essay published by Time magazine recognizing the top 100 most influential people in 2018. Barack Obama reminded all Americans of a duty to make their country more equal for all races and ages. “This generation — of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter — embraces that duty,” he wrote. “If they make their elders uncomfortable, that’s how it should be.” Obama praised the young liberal students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for tackling the NRA after their school was attacked by a deranged gunman and

Before he was fired as FBI director, James Comey told President Donald Trump that he would be “honestly loyal” to the president and would not commit “weasel moves” in his administration. Comey detailed his conversation with the president during a dinner with Trump at the White House on January 28. “I said I don’t do sneaky things, I don’t leak, I don’t do weasel moves,” Comey wrote in the memo, promising that he would “always tell him the truth.” Comey said that Trump told him that he needed loyalty, but in response, Comey wrote that “I did not reply, or

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the Clinton investigation, have also been referred for criminal investigation.

(Video) - Former Playboy model Karen McDougal is now free to discuss her alleged affair with President Trump, after reaching an agreement with the tabloid company that had prohibited her from speaking, according to McDougal. McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it. McDougal´s lawyer previously said the AMI contract

Over the last five years, cancer research has seen the “greatest advances,” including a new approach to treating the complex disease as a “chronic disease,” instead of trying to cure it. “We have seen the greatest advances in cancer medicine in the last five years with drugs targeting the immune system moving into the clinic and showing remarkable response rates with quite a few different malignancies,” Lisa Coussens, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology, said to Fox News at the American Association for Cancer Research annual conference.

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are building a swimming pool at their home in an exclusive neighborhood of Washington DC. The 44th president and his family purchased the the 8,200 sq ft mansion in the Kalorama area of the capital in 2017 for $8.1million having initially rented the property. Plans are now afoot for a new swimming pool in the grounds, according to TMZ, which says it has seen building permits. The permit application process started in January, the website reports, and there have been a number of reviews about electrics and plumbing in recent months. Last year, it

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

"She is descending into hell right now. She´s not going to heaven. She was a bad person," Stone told controversial website InfoWars.com Wednesday. Stone´s comments come after he posted an initial statement on Instagram where he tore into the former first lady following her death.
