California to pull National Guard troops
stationed at southern border

Washington Examiner, by Katelyn Caralle

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/11/2019 9:50:59 AM

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is pulling hundreds of National Guard troops from the state’s southern border, in a rebuke to President Trump’s characterization of immigration. "The border ´emergency´ is a manufactured crisis," Newsom is expected to say say during his State of the State address Tuesday. "And California will not be part of this political theater.” Last year, former California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown agreed to deploy National Guard troops to California’s border with Mexico, but insisted that they would be instructed to enforce immigration laws. Brown’s successor made the decision to pull the 360 troops currently stationed at

I foresee another wave of U-Haul trailers leaving the state soon. Might get a bargain on a house pretty soon, but you´d be advised to have a good security system!

Just give liberal CA back to the Mexicans, secede, and leave the rest of CA to enact some serious conservative policies.

By the way, can the Gov. actually remove the Federales? They´re "national" guards troops. Doesn´t that mean appointed by POTUS to go wherever he sees fit?

Fine. Pull every Marine, Army, Air Force and Navy base while you´re at it. Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, and several other states want them.

Take every FBI office, ATF, IRS, VA, SSI, FDA, HSA, and DOJ, Federal Court, Post Office, Weather Service and move them to less virtuous States.

Let CA and their pretty-boy guv fend for themselves. Sick of ya, CA.

#7 has the right idea. If California wants to be part of Mexico, let them go! Withdraw ALL of the Military Bases and move them to states that want them. Remove ANYTHING FEDERAL. Then build the wall around CALIFORNIA and let them deal with Mexico on their own. No point letting the Illegals pass THROUGH CA. They need to be stopped at THAT Border. Why should the rest of us have to deal with their foolish mistakes!

You have to expect that from the leftist Democrat California Governor, as the leftist and liberal Democrat plan is to facilitate a flood of illegal aliens continuing to gain entry to the USA, and then being defending and protecting the illegal aliens, until they can be legalized through a massive amnesty and eventually be granted US voting rights in huge numbers, knowing that most would turn out to be natural socialist oriented Democrat voters, thereby permanently changing national voter demographics to the Democrats favor, thus cancelling out enough “Deplorable” Republican votes in key States to keep the Democrats in permanent political power in Congress and the White House able to transform the USA into a future socialist utopia.

Since it is now thought that there are upwards of 22 million illegal aliens in the USA, most of them poor, uneducated, and socialist minded, this is a very serious matter when it comes to the future political balance of the USA electorate. If the Democrat plan succeeds the country has probably elected the last Republican President in our lifetimes.

I agree with the suggestion that all Federal facilities and personnel be relocated out of California. Military and Federal employees contribute a lot of money to the state Also, think of all the energy that would be saved by closing military installations and government facilities!

OK #12, we know this is the plan, the rest of us need to make the preventative solution happen.
Relocation of all government facilities is a good start. Cutting off all federal funding, maybe cutting the state in two, everyone south of San Fran can become Mexican, thereby eliminating in one stroke two crazy congression critters of the USA, Pelosi and Mad Max.

Many military installations located there for specific geographic reasons. Keep those specific military bases, removing all other federal facilities and funds from the state. Establish a strong perimeter on those bases, moving all non essential functions and personnel to other areas of the country.
Either CA steps up and enforces federal law of CA receives NOTHING in federal benefits.

The rest of the time, they are under the control of their various states. Their governors can call them up and they are paid with state funds.

Gavin Newsom is a bigger threat to California than Jerry Brown. Newsom is a socialist extremist, and like most Democrats, he apparently cares more about illegals than legal American citizens. If Newsom pulls the 360 California National Guard troops from the border with Mexico, then the feds need to deploy as many ICE agents and border patrol agents to fill the void.

Manufactured crisis my rear. I know California. My husband is a native Californian and I lived in the East Bay for many years. The number of illegals, anchor babies and Visa overstays are radically changing the place and the quality of life is being ruined. Gavin Newsom is a traitor to his state and his country. Many Californians are still insular and smug but the ultimate price they´ll pay in lost pensions, hostile neighbors and inferior schools and infrastructure will be terrible.

The Lone Cypress on the Monterey Peninsula

Los Angeles Times, by Louis Sahagun    Original Article

The Lone Cypress clinging to a granite promontory above the surf on California’s Monterey Peninsula has survived arsonists’ fires, vandal’s paint, drought and relentless winds along the famously scenic 17-Mile Drive edging the Pebble Beach Resorts. But on Thursday, the most photographed tree in North America was lashed by a brutal Pacific storm that knocked off one of its largest branches, significantly altering the appearance of the tree that has been a marketing tool and a registered trademark of the Pebble Beach Co. since 1919. Until now, the tree, believed to be more than 250 years old, had posed for

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in her later years, but that’s OK, since plenty of others in the government are older, including President Donald Trump. What’s maybe not OK — and if anything rather concerning to some — is Pelosi’s habit of mispronouncing words, suffering brain freezes and getting the most basic details wrong. Take for instance dates.

President Trump has been turned down by Democrats for a sensible border barrier, so he will declare a national emergency in accordance with a law Congress passed in 1976. Somehow, following a law Congress passed gets Trump labeled as a dictator. Here is the case for declaring a national emergency: Tens of thousands of people die each year from drug overdoses and a huge percentage of those drugs comes across the porous southern border illegally. Here is one story, headlined: "Deadly blue ´Mexican oxy´ pills take toll on US Southwest": Aaron Francisco Chavez swallowed at least one of the sky

Merkel’s comments at the Munich Security Conference, an annual gathering of top global defense and foreign policy officials, followed days of tensions between Washington and Europe over Iran.

In mid-January, a federal judge blocked an additional question to the survey that wants to ask whether the participant is a U.S. citizen. The Supreme Court promised yesterday to hear the case quickly so it is resolved before the 2020 Census. The Census is done every ten years so that Congress knows how to regulate federal money and affects the amount of representation each district gets. The number of electoral votes is also determined by the Census. Liberal leaders have long been counting illegals in the Census to inflate representation, then electing representatives who declare their area a "sanctuary" for

But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to

Andrew McCabe on Friday denied that he knew of an effort to oust President Trump using the 25th Amendment, saying he never had “any extended discussions” about the matter and was unaware of such talks. “At no time did Mr. McCabe participate in any extended discussions about the use of the 25th Amendment, nor is he aware of any such discussions,” his spokeswoman, Melissa Schwartz, said in a statement on Twitter, adding that his remarks about the issue were taken out of context. She said McCabe “was present and participated in a discussion that included a comment by Deputy Attorney

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,
