THE DURHAM REPORT, IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

Did Donald Trump forget to hold presidential candidate Joe Biden accountable for his role in perpetrating the most massive political fraud in the history of the United States?

Perhaps in the next debate, President Trump will keep his cool and put Biden on the spot for his subversive activities.

TRUMP -- BIDEN 1ST DEBATE WINNER IS JOE BIDEN

debate-before-and-after-1

Head fake?

The big question going into tonight’s debate was answered. A disrespectful Joe Biden demonstrated high energy, physical stamina, and an adequate level of mental acuity as both parties ranted and raved. Based on this single criterion, I judge Vice President Joe Biden to be the presumptive winner. If Biden retreats into his past behavior and fails to leave his basement to campaign, I will question whether there is the possibility of performance-enhancing drugs. At least, Biden overcame the low expectations of the GOP with his forceful presentation. 

Did we learn anything new?

Not really. We have heard it all before. Nothing outstanding was revealed. Trump was Trump, loud, boisterous, repetitive, and Biden held his own even though he blatantly lied about his family and other matters.

Bottom line…

Political noise, moderated by Chris Wallace, who tried mightily to curtail the noise generated by both parties. The American public lost as there were no substantive answers.

We are so screwed.

TRUMP -- BIDEN DEBATE: THE DEBATE IS ALMOST HERE!

I think that all we have to know is symbolized by tonight’s debate backdrop…

debate-backdrop

Tonight is not so much a debate between two individuals, one a Republican and one a Democrat, it is between two competing ideologies: capitalism versus socialism. And the question can be clearly stated, do we want a system that provides an opportunity to succeed or a system that demands that everybody accept the lowest common denominator as the norm.

As you listen to tonight’s debate, consider that the Democrat Party has done nothing, proposed nothing, or assisted in any way in helping our nation to achieve our national goals. They have concentrated on four things: one, maintaining Barack Obama’s specious legacy built on corruption and falsehoods; two, covering-up their interference in a presidential election, including spying on American citizens; three, relentlessly attacking the President of the United States while projecting the Democrat’s criminal actions onto the Republicans; and four, trying to subvert the coming election by sowing discord, violence, and dissention to challenge the credibility of the election.

I cannot remember a time when any party put forth such a damaged candidate, with a record of little achievement, demonstrable evidence of corruption and criminality, and an individual that does not have the physical and mental abilities to render them fit to assume the office of the Presidency.

Folks, we are in deep trouble, and as the backdrop suggests, we are fighting to preserve our union and our constitution.

This is no joke and no laughing matter. This debate is not entertainment, but a glimpse into the future of a dystopian nation. We cannot defeat evil in the next four years, only retard its growth as we prepare for another significant fight in 2024. It is time to take action – to preserve our nation, our way of life, our standard of living, and to secure the future of the next generations.

We are screwed but have this chance to fight back.

MAINSTREAM MEDA: FULL ATTACK BEFORE TRUMP -- BIDEN DEBATE

siren

In an effort to distract people’s attention from tomorrow’s Trump-Biden debate, the mainstream media, led by the anti-Trump Drudge Report, throws mud against the wall, starting with the release of allegedly confidential tax returns leaked by anonymous sources to the New York Times.

One, it seems curious to me that the New York Times, the mainstream paper of record that published anonymously-sourced lies, without retraction after exposure, is taken to be a credible source. When the paper refuses to show the Trump Organization the tax returns in question, can the New York Times be trusted? Apparently not -- given their reporting on the Nazi Holocaust, Stalin’s massacre of Ukrainians, and the massive falsehoods released during the Obama Administration’s SPYGATE affair.

Two, it should surprise nobody that the opening salvo fired by the New York Times was picked up by the Drudge Report, which serves as the lazy reporter’s idea source for news and feature stories.

drudge-1

Three, it all looks so credible, “WATCHDOG CLAIMS CAMPAIGN ‘LAUNDERING’ MONEY” and linking to a seemingly credible establishment financial news source like Forbes.

Nonpartisan Watchdog Accuses Trump Campaign Of ‘Laundering’ $170 Million

TOPLINE

The Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan campaign finance watchdog group, filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission Tuesday accusing the Trump campaign of “laundering” $170 million through numerous companies, some with connections to former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.

But it all falls apart when you find that the Campaign Legal Center, billed as a nonpartisan campaign finance watchdog group,  is one of those progressive socialist democrat hit sites…

clc

Litigation and Advocacy Organization

The Campaign Legal Center is an advocacy group aligned with left-of-center interests that supports strict enforcement of campaign finance laws. Legal Center attorneys track and participate in a variety of cases around the country involving campaign finance law at the federal, state, and local levels.

Leadership

TREVOR POTTER

Trevor Potter serves as president of CLC. Potter previously served as general counsel for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in his 2000 and 2008 presidential campaigns. Prior to his work for the McCain campaign, Potter was a partner at Wiley Rein & Fielding and later served as a commissioner on the FEC from 1991-1996.

JASON JAFFERY

Jason Jaffery serves as the chief development officer of the CLC. Jaffery previously worked as the director of development at the left-of-center Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). For seven years, Jaffery was the development director for another left-wing organization, the ACLU of Ohio Foundation, but later moved to the Aspen Institute and then the Democracy Collaborative.

  • Red House Fund
  • Rockefeller Brothers Fund
  • Rockefeller Family Fund 
  • Sandler Foundation

< Source>

Bottom line…

Not exactly the fair and impartial source you might expect.

But, look at the facts:

(1) A debt load of $421 million in a billion-dollar real-estate empire is a pittance, even if this was the correct amount he may be obligated to pay. Most real estate operations are highly-leveraged using debt as the lever. Tax "avoidance" is smart, whereas tax evasion is criminal. Trump does not do his own taxes and employs professional tax attorneys and accountants. Trump donates his salary to charity and most of the deductions were created by Obama's rules and regulations. 

(2) The timing is suspect since the Internal Revenue Service and various state taxing authorities have had the real documents for years and have mounted formidable audit efforts.

(3) A look at the Soros and progressive funding sources behind this so-called nonpartisan watchdog tell a far different story.

(4) But the real kicker is – considering what President Trump has done for America and ALL Americans, his crimes, if any, will never match the crimes of President Obama and Hillary Clinton, who sold-out America to IRAN and the RUSSIANS while mounting the most massive, most extensive cover-up in the history of the United States.

I call bullshit.

TRUMP -- BIDEN DEBATE PREP -- SEPTEMBER 29, 2020

TRUMP-BIDEN-DEBATE

We pretty much have few expectations of Donald  Trump, who we expect to be loud, boisterous, hyperbolic, funny, provocative, and who might play fast and loose with some of the facts.under discussion. Will we see Trump the President, Trump the showman, or the six-faces of Trump?

But, we all are waiting with bated breath to see which Joe Biden shows up at the debate. Will it be the low-energy, gaffe-prone Joe Biden who is hiding in his basement rather than engaging with the American people? Will it be a candidate with a marked cognitive impairment? Or will it be a relatively normal candidate whose performance might be tuned with psychotropic drugs and energy boosters?

A close family member had dementia that erased much of their near-term memory but left the ability to recall things in the distant past. While undergoing an MRI, a drug was given to reduce anxiety and claustrophobia. Much to our amazement, short-term memory was restored and persisted for approximately ten hours. We engaged a pharmacological psychiatrist to explore options. Yes, the drug did react in some people, but it was of short-term benefit and highly addictive. So I wonder if Biden’s performance will be artificially enhanced?

The details…

TRUMP'S TAXES: I JUST DON'T EFFIN CARE!

Do you really care about what businessman/showman Trump did BEFORE he worked tirelessly to give us an excellent economy, tax cuts, fewer rules and regulations, smaller government, the beginnings of peace in the Middle East, and kept his campaign promises?

All while under 24/7 attack by the Obama Administration's intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the majority party in Congress, and the intense scrutiny of the mainstream media who refused to retract the outright lies they published daily? And, all while Democrat governors tried to kill the economy by putting politics above the people they governed and shut-down their states with no scientific rationale?

Name any other president in history that has put more hours in the Oval Office in service to “We the People.”

drudge-headlineOf course, there are the “anonymous sources” and disclaimers…

The New York Times has obtained tax-return data extending over more than two decades for Mr. Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization, including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for 2018 or 2019. This article offers an overview of The Times’s findings; additional articles will be published in the coming weeks.

The returns are some of the most sought-after, and speculated-about, records in recent memory. In Mr. Trump’s nearly four years in office — and across his endlessly hyped decades in the public eye — journalists, prosecutors, opposition politicians and conspiracists have, with limited success, sought to excavate the enigmas of his finances. By their very nature, the filings will leave many questions unanswered, many questioners unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the I.R.S., not the findings of an independent financial examination. They report that Mr. Trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth. Nor do they reveal any previously unreported connections to Russia.

[OCS: The individual(s) that provided these returns to the New York Times or other entities is guilty of a felony.]

In response to a letter summarizing The Times’s findings, Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate” and requested the documents on which they were based. After The Times declined to provide the records, in order to protect its sources, Mr. Garten took direct issue only with the amount of taxes Mr. Trump had paid. <Source>

[OCS: Ask yourself how the tax returns themselves could reveal their source – unless they were photocopies of official government documents or electronic files with embedded GUIDs (Globally Unique IDentifiers)?]

Why now?

Since these tax returns have been in the hands of the Internal Revenue Service, New York State tax authorities, and other state entities for years, why are they being released now? Can it be that this is a necessary distraction from Joe Biden’s debate performance or an opportunity to introduce Trump’s personal finances into the debate?

Or is this a negotiated payoff whereby a government or Trump-insider turns over documents to escape the consequences of their own criminal activity. Much in the same manner the convicted liar Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, tried to cut a deal for his criminal activities that had nothing to do with Donald Trump.

Bottom line…

Trump has proven himself extremely capable of fighting his own battles against the government, corrupt news media, and officials in high places.

No matter what the outcome of this particular attack might be, I don’t give an effing damn when it is measured against what he has done for the citizens of the United States in the last four years – and especially as measured against the eight years of the Obama Administration and Joe Biden’s 47-years in government.

I just don’t effing care.

SCHMUCK SCHUMER ATTACKS AMY CONEY BARRETT NOMINATION WITH LIES

Within minutes of President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Senator Chuck “the Schmuck: Schumer Tweeted an opening shot, issued a press release from the Senate Democrats, and sent fundraising emails to potential contributors…

The full release in context…

SCHUMER: A VOTE FOR JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT IS A VOTE TO ELIMINATE HEALTH CARE FOR MILLIONS IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC

September 26, 2020

Brooklyn, N.Y.Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court:

The American people should make no mistake—a vote by any Senator for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to strike down the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions. By nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, President Trump has once again put Americans’ healthcare in the crosshairs. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage, unabated by this Administration, healthcare was already the number one issue on the ballot in November. President Trump has promised to nominate Supreme Court Justices who will “terminate” our health care law and decimate the health care system for American Indians and Alaska Natives. In Judge Barrett, President Trump has found the deciding vote.

[OCS: Let us remember that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which does not protect patients and is not affordable, was founded on a significant lie – “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! So lied former President Obama and echoed by Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and the mainstream media. Not to mention is fundamentally unconstitutional and no legislation, in the history of the United States, commanded citizens to purchase a commercial product under the threat of penalties and fines. 

As we have seen, premium costs have skyrocketed, deductibles increased, services reduced, and the insurance companies kept their state mini-monopolies and massive profits.

As for the Supreme Court, the ACT was unconstitutional, and Obama's government lawyers told different stories to the American people and the Court. Another progressive socialist Democrat attempt to nationalize healthcare on the path to a government single-payer system that would affect the lives of every American. Disadvantaging senior citizens who are nearing the end of their lives and allowing live babies to be medically murdered.] 

Judge Barrett strongly criticized the ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act, claiming that if Justices read the law the way she does, they would “have had to invalidate” the entire health care law.

[OCS: Should an unconstitutional law come before the Supreme Court, one would assume that it would be invalidated regardless of its popularity with the Democrats– as that is the sworn duty of the Justices appointed to the Court. Of course, several unconstitutional measures previously upheld by the liberal Justices might be at risk if those issues came before the Court.]

Her record also makes clear that if she is confirmed, the reproductive freedoms that millions of women hold dear would be in grave danger.

[OCS: Reproductive rights is a code phrase for unrestricted government-funded abortion, including the medical murder of living children who survived an abortion procedure. By the way, in the unlikely event that Roe v. Wade is found to be unconstitutional, the matter would be returned to the individual states pending new congressional action.]

Should Judge Amy Coney Barrett be confirmed, a far-right majority on the Court could also turn back the clock on women’s rights and a woman’s right to choose, workers’ rights, voting rights, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections and more. The future for DACA recipients also hangs in the balance with this nominee.

[OCS: Workers’ rights is a code phrase for mandatory unionization of both the private and public sector, although workers now have specific rights under the law and can seek redress of individual grievances at any time.

Voting rights is a code phrase meaning fewer controls that impact the process and integrity of voting, such as demanding a photo-id or clean voter registration rolls. Somehow, the Democrats believe that the same identification needed for travel, financial transactions, and entry to federal buildings is impossible to obtain by voters – even though official identification cards are freely available.

Civil rights are all about pandering to the core constituency of the Democrat Party by offering class protections, unconstitutional affirmative action, and reparations to a segment of the population who use race as an excuse for not conforming to cultural norms, lack of personal responsibility, and underachievement.

LGBTQ rights are offering class protections and legally demanding you participate in another individual’s delusion that they are a man, woman, or something else depending on how they may feel that day. I think actor James Woods said it best, “While we are fighting overseas for our freedoms, the Democrats are fighting over which bathroom to use.”

Environmental protections – you mean the specious science that allows the government to control our economy, damage or destroy our capitalist system, and to plunder our national treasury at will.

DACA – even former President Barack Obama claimed he lacked the power to convert illegal aliens into citizens with a stroke of his pen. This is an unconstitutional rule that needs to be overturned.

The problem with the Democrats is that they view any decision they do not like as illegitimate and characterizing those on the Court who put forth such a majority decision as right-wingers.]

After holding a Supreme Court vacancy open for 8 months before a presidential election, and after failing for the last six months to address the tremendous pain the American people are feeling amidst this pandemic, President Trump and Leader McConnell are doing what no Senate has done before: shamelessly rushing to fill Justice Ginsburg’s seat less than 40 days before a presidential election. Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish was that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. Republicans are poised to not only ignore her wishes, but to replace her with someone who could tear down everything that she built. This reprehensible power grab is a cynical attack on the legitimacy of the Court.

[OCS: There are numerous historical precedents for the action President Trump is taking, and no constitutional provisions are attached to the fevered wishes of a dying Supreme Court Justice. Much of what Justice Ginsberg built was based on nonexistent or perverted interpretations of the Constitution. This action, characterized as a “reprehensible power grab, is a cynical attack on the legitimacy of the Court,” is precisely what the Democrats would do under similar circumstances.]

I will strongly oppose this nomination.

[OCS: Of course, the progressive socialist Democrats would oppose anything that curtails their power and protects the Constitution, America, and ALL Americans. The Courts are the only way the progressive socialist democrats can put reprehensible practices into law and avoid further scrutiny, a public referendum, and the requirement for cowardly members of Congress to go on the record with a recorded vote.]

<Source>

Bottom line…

In one press release, Senate Minority Leader Chuck “the Schmuck” Schumer illustrates all of the reasons why we need an original constitution textualist like Amy Coney Barrett on the Court. It is time to tell your Senator that the time for a partisan court is over.

Especially when the Democrats are trying to steal an election – falsely accusing the GOP of actions they are taking to subvert an election. Especialy when everyone saw what they did in the 2016 election and beyond with their subversion of government intelligence, law enforcement, state department, and taxation agencies, this needs to be redressed and prohibited in the future.

This is the ultimate test for cowardly and un-American Senators who would deny our Constitution to advance their toxic agenda.

If Democrats are elected to local, state, and federal offices, we are majorly screwed.

RUTH BADER GINSBERG ON RACE: DON'T DO AS I DO, DO AS I SAY...

Before the Blacks throw-in with the progressive socialist democrats to raise a stink about President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the Supreme Court…

RBG

Let us not forget, that in her 27-year history as a Supreme Court Justice, it appears she hired only ONE Black to serve as one of her law clerks out of the approximately 150 who had served as clerks,

But that should not be surprising because, in her 13 years as a federal court of appeals judge, she hired NO Blacks.

In the history of Ginsberg on both courts, she ruled more on her feelings and ideology than she did on constitutional textualism. 

Once again, the progressive socialist democrats need your vote, and they and their friends in the mainstream media are manipulating you for their own personal, professional, and political ambitions. Have you ever wondered why the inner cities, governed by progressive socialist democrats for decades, remain a cesspool of poverty, illiteracy, disease, and crime? Have you ever wondered why your community is less safe than others, and drug dealers and thugs rule the roost? Why is violence tolerated and accepted as expected in the inner cities but nowhere else? Have you ever wondered what happened to those billions of taxpayer dollars allocated to improving life in the inner cities?

Can you not see that Donald Trump has done more for people of color than any other president since Abraham Lincoln?

Now consider Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court…

ACB

What you do not often hear in the mainstream media is that Amy Coney Barrett and her husband have seven children, ranging in age from 8-19 years-of-age and two of the Barrett children are adopted from Haiti. And, their youngest biological child has special needs with Down's Syndrome.

Three of her seven children are sitting behind her at her confirmation hearing.

ACB-CHILDREN

“Emma is 16. The first apple of our eye. Vivian, directly next to Emma, is 13. Vivian is our miracle. Vivian joined our family—she was born in Haiti, and she came home when she was 14 months old, and she weighed 11 pounds, and she was so weak we were told she might never walk normally or speak. Today Vivian is a track star, and I assure you she has no trouble talking. Tess, sitting next to Vivian, is also 13 years old. Both in 8th grade.”

Bottom line…

Judge Barrett is a strict contextualist whose rulings are informed by the actual text of the United States Constitution and the reasoning of those who drafted our founding documents. Unlike the progressive socialist democrats who believe that your rights come from government and are not inalienable God-given rights. The progressives want to disarm law-abiding citizens and make them dependent on the government for their safety and security. They have nominated two corrupt congenital liars in the last two presidential election cycles, which should be an insult to every American citizen.

The simple truth, observable with your own eyes and ears, is that President Trump has done more for minorities, more for impoverished people, more for our economy, and more for world peace than most modern presidents, even exceeding the accomplishments of President Ronald Reagan.

This is not a vote between two individuals, one strong and robust, and one mentally unsound and cowering in his basement; it is a vote to continue improving the American way of life rather than sink into the shared misery and decay of progressive socialism.

Obama-Biden did little or nothing for the Blacks, and today he sits in Martha’s Vineyard or his beachfront property in Hawaii,  both multi-million dollar estates far from the ‘hood he continually references.

And, if you want a tie-breaker, it is the Democrats, the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and who fought against civil rights legislation, that wants to deny everyone a first-class education by killing school choice and vouchers on behalf of the corrupt socialist unions. Education is the answer to a brighter future – except when denied by the progressive socialist democrats.

TELL ME THAT THIS IS NOT SO IN TODAY'S AMERICA

crying-eagle

A friend emailed me this cut-and-paste entry from the internet…

Subject: Going Socialist?

I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I’ve known. Today, I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life--so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

You can't justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

• If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?!

Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it's racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. The choice is between Capitalism and Socialism. What will it be? Time is short, make your choice wisely!

Worth sharing? If you do not think so, you are part of the problem.

California 2020 ballot propositions -- Quick Look

Like most legislation coming out of a state governed by a radical progressive socialist democrat majority, much of this legislation drives the corrupt progressive agenda or helps the special interests who support the Democrats.

sorry

14

no

AUTHORIZES BONDS CONTINUING STEM CELL RESEARCH. Authorizes $5.5 billion state bonds for: stem cell and other medical research, including training; research facility construction; administrative costs. Dedicates $1.5 billion to brain-related diseases.

OCS: Have you ever heard of any advances from this research where costs are socialized and profits privatized? It appears that $2.1 billion went to people with links to the board. And, now their hand is out for $5.5 billion. A classic California SPECIAL INTEREST boondoggle.

15

no

[OCS: WARNING – Skullduggery ahead….

The California Attorney General continues to fudge proposition labels. What Proposition 15 does can be described simply as “It raises property taxes on commercial and industrial real estate.” Becerra chooses to describe the proposition’s ballot title as: “Increases funding sources for public schools, community colleges, and local governments by changing assessment of commercial and industrial property.”

A California judge has ordered changes to an election guide mailed to every registered California voter this fall, ruling that some arguments opposing a hotly contested property tax initiative are “false or misleading.”]

INCREASES FUNDING SOURCES FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS, COMMUNITY COLLEGES, AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SERVICES BY CHANGING TAX ASSESSMENT OF COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY.         

OCS: This is another naked tax grab that disadvantages property owners by linking tax revenues to nothing more than “market estimates.” As we have seen with other “dedicated” revenue streams – the State collects the money, replaces it with an interest-bearing IOU payable in the future, and then transfers the money to the general fund for discretionary use.

Why should we continue to fund schools that indoctrinate rather than educate? Where most of the money goes to personnel and pension funds and not the children? It is time to defund those who turn out generations of  functional illiterates.

Remember, businesses do not pay business taxes, they are passed to the employees (lower salaries, fewer benefits) or the consumers (higher prices).

16

no

ALLOWS DIVERSITY AS A FACTOR IN PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, AND CONTRACTING DECISIONS.

Permits government decision-making policies to consider race, sex, color,
ethnicity, or national origin in order to address diversity by repealing constitutional provision prohibiting such policies.

Repeals Proposition 209 (1996), which says that the state cannot discriminate or grant preferential treatment based on race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, education, or contracting

OCS: There is no other way to put it – This is unconstitutional legislation to enable discrimination and allow progressive socialist democrats to violate the equal protection under the law clause. Institutionalizes the type of official systemic racism they riot over.

17

no

RESTORES RIGHT TO VOTE AFTER COMPLETION OF PRISON TERM. 

Restores voting rights upon completion of prison term to persons who have been disqualified from voting while serving a prison term.

OCS: This is an attempt by the progressive socialist democrats to increase the number of Democrat voters. This is part of the penalty that you pay when you commit a felony. Also known as the “Bank Robbers for Biden” proposition.

18

no

AMENDS CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION TO PERMIT 17-YEAR-OLDS TO VOTE IN PRIMARY AND SPECIAL ELECTIONS IF THEY WILL TURN 18 BY THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION AND BE OTHERWISE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE.

OCS: This is an attempt by the progressive socialist democrats to increase the number of Democrat voters by enabling younger individuals to vote. Considering that most of these individuals are attending school and do not have their first job, it is a shameless attempt to allow indoctrinated 'progressive" voters access to the electoral system. When was the last time you heard about masses of informed children making good choices?

19

no

CHANGES CERTAIN PROPERTY TAX RULES. LEGISLATIVE

Allows homeowners who are over 55, disabled, or wildfire/disaster victims to transfer primary residence's tax base to replacement residence. Changes taxation of family property transfers. Establishes fire protection services fund.

Fiscal Impact: Local governments could gain tens of millions of dollars of property tax revenue per year, probably growing over time to a few hundred million dollars per year. Schools could receive similar property tax gains.

OCS: Hope you didn’t want to leave the family home to your children. Not all wildfires need to be fought with massive efforts to protect inaccessible areas.Especially considering the overtime and pension contributions to unionized public employees.

20

yes

RESTRICTS PAROLE FOR NON-VIOLENT OFFENDERS. AUTHORIZES FELONY SENTENCES FOR CERTAIN OFFENSES CURRENTLY TREATED ONLY AS MISDEMEANORS. 

Limits access to parole program established for non-violent offenders who have completed the full term of their primary offense by eliminating eligibility for certain offenses. Fiscal Impact: Increase in state and local
correctional, court, and law enforcement costs likely in the tens of millions of dollars annually, depending on implementation.

OCS: Restores a measure of sanity in the criminal justice system. 

21

no

EXPANDS LOCAL GOVERNMENTS' AUTHORITY TO ENACT RENT CONTROL ON RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY. 

Allows local governments to establish rent control on residential properties over 15 years old. Local limits on rate increases may differ from statewide limit.

OCS: If you are a constitutional conservative and respect private property rights and ownership you will reject this measure. It is a blatant appeal to the dependency class. This dries up housing as builders and landlords cede control of their property to pandering politicians.

22

yes

EXEMPTS APP-BASED TRANSPORTATION AND DELIVERY COMPANIES FROM PROVIDING EMPLOYEE BENEFITS TO CERTAIN DRIVERS.

Classifies app-based drivers as "independent contractors," instead of "employees," and provides independent-contractor drivers other compensation, unless certain criteria are met.

OCS: This is a naked power grab by the progressive socialist democrats on behalf of the unions. Considering that the California legislators destroyed independent contractors with AB 5, this is an attempt to right a corrupt legislative wrong. Frees Uber drivers and others to continue providing you with services in the People’s Republik.

23

no

ESTABLISHES STATE REQUIREMENTS FOR KIDNEY DIALYSIS CLINICS. REQUIRES ON-SITE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.

Requires physician or other specified medical professional on site during dialysis treatment. Prohibits clinics from reducing services without state approval. Prohibits clinics from refusing to treat patients based on payment source.

OCS: Implements union-dominated Cuba-like healthcare for dialysis patients on behalf of the unions, notably the Marxist SEIU.

24

no

AMENDS CONSUMER PRIVACY LAWS.

Permits consumers to: prevent businesses from sharing personal information, correct inaccurate personal information, and limit businesses' use of "sensitive personal information," including precise geolocation, race, ethnicity, and health information. Establishes California Privacy Protection
Agency.

OCS: A mish-mash of ideas that allows the government to drive more business out-of-state with more bureaucracy, rules, and regulations.

25

no

REFERENDUM ON LAW THAT REPLACED MONEY BAIL WITH SYSTEM BASED ON PUBLIC SAFETY AND FLIGHT RISK.

A "Yes" vote approves, and a "No" vote rejects, law replacing money bail with system based on public safety and flight risk.

OCS: No bail is is a stunningly bad idea that puts more criminals on the street and rewards the worst of the worst. A "no" vote repeals an insane law.

Bottom line...

This is your last chance to stop legislative corruption in this election cycle.

We are so screwed.
