John “Jesus Told Me to Impose Obamacare” Kasich and Arnold “When You Finish with the Dusting, There’s One Other Thing I Need You To Do” Schwarzenegger have teamed up to save the California Republican Party.
The pair will deliver speeches and participate in panels on March 21 in Los Angeles at an event for New Way California, a group formed by Assemblyman Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley).
“They will be focused on reminding the Republican Party we need them to be successful, but in order to be successful, they need to choose policies and messaging that helps them grow rather than continue to shrink,” said Daniel Ketchell, a spokesman for Schwarzenegger.
New Way California, according to their Twitter feed, supports Democrat positions on illegal immigration, global warming, state-run health care, and gun control. They have 705 Followers.
South Africa’s parliament on Tuesday passed a motion brought by the radical left party, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), to carry out land expropriation without compensation, a key pillar of the ruling ANC government and new President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The motion, which would include a review of the constitution, was brought by leader of the EFF Julius Malema and was passed by an overwhelming majority of 241 votes in favour versus 83 votes against the proposal.
The justification for the law is, of course, peace, justice, and equality.
“For a lasting peace‚ security and justice‚ land must be expropriated without compensation for equal redistribution. “
There’s a joke that goes “What’s the difference between South Africa and Zimbabwe? About ten years.” Turns out, it wasn’t a joke.
The grass-roots Democratic activists gathered at the party’s annual convention in San Diego this weekend implicitly rebuked the state’s senior U.S. senator by denying her the party’s endorsement for her re-election bid.Feinstein finished far behind de León, the top Democrat in the state Senate. De León received 54 percent of delegates’ votes to just 37 percent for Feinstein. It takes 60 percent to receive an endorsement.
This is a woman who was once mayor of San Francisco, who has argued for the confiscation of guns from law-abiding gun owners, and whose lifetime ACU rating is under 10%. (Meaning she has voted conservatively less than 10% of the time.)
But Kevin de Leon is an even bigger anti-gun zealot, a man so far left he introduced environmental regulation so radical (banning all fossil fuels in California) not even the hard-left Democrat legislature would go for it. (Probably because existing renewable energy bills have already made California’s electric bills look like Michigan’s car insurance premiums. Worse, actually.
California is now the land of Gavin Newsom, Kevin de Leon, Kamala Harris, and Ted Lieu; people so far left they have to look over their right shoulder to see Jerry Brown.
Thirty years of unchecked illegal and mass legal immigration (27% of California’s population was born outside the USA) has transformed California from Reagan Conservative to the most radically crazy far-left state in the country.
Oddly enough, I have yet to see a single editorial complaining about that leftward radicalization of the Democrat Party. Not one. Ever.
Which is exactly why Democrats are so adamant that mass immigration from the Third World must continue. And why most Americans have a “Bye, Felicia” attitude toward California secession.

Honestly, I don’t get white supremacy because this picture demonstrates how truly effing stupid white people can be.
I know this guy who I respect in most areas. He’s very level-headed, has a very responsible job in which lives and millions of dollars of property can be affected by the decisions he makes. He’s very intelligent, well-traveled, educated… all the things, okay.
So, a couple of years ago he got involved in a relationship with a guy who had… let’s be polite… an “addiction problem.” Well, said addiction problem led to other problems which led to them breaking up.
After the break-up, the guy with the addiction problem stalked him, both physically and in cyberspace, leading to a restraining order and the level-headed guy selling his house and moving so that addiction problem couldn’t find him. Addiction problem stalked him anyway all the time shit-posting about him in social media.
Well, last month, addiction problem completed rehab (not for the first time) and level-headed guy immediately… took him back and let him move back in.
I concede there’s maybe more to the story than this, but that just seems like a bad decision. I can see taking someone back into your life after they work through some problems, but I’d want some time, at least, to make sure they had actually fixed themselves.
Maybe I lack Christ-like compassion. I really don’t know.
Some high school students and Louisiana saw another student draw a square root symbol as part of a math problem. (Below). Thinking it resembled a gun, they flew into a panic and called police. Police went to the math student’s home and searched it. I am not making this up.
My actual favorite part of this story is how the reporter felt it necessary to explain, “the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number.”
You’ll be relieved to know the police found nothing more threatening than algebra homework. The student may still face disciplinary action at the school though. Update: The school is moving to expel the student who drew the square root symbol.
Oh, and some idiots in the Seattle area freaked out and called the media to report that a neighbor was flying a Confederate flag. It was the flag of Norway. I only wish I were making that up.
Meh, not so much.
The police officer assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School resigned Thursday, under investigation for failing to enter the building as a gunman opened fire and killed 17 people.
So, this armed cop stayed outside and did nothing while the violent headcase was slaughtering the sons and daughters of the taxpayers who pay his salary and… if you recall correctly… the violent headcase simply walked off the school grounds after the shooting and went home. The motto of Broward County law enforcement must be, “To protect and to serve… or go outside and wet our pants.”
The former deputy who did nothing while now has armed police protecting his home. Hm, I wonder if they would stand outside and do nothing if an armed assailant showed up.
In November, a tipster called BSO to say Cruz “could be a school shooter in the making” but deputies did not write up a report on that warning. It came just weeks after a relative called urging BSO to seize his weapons. Two years ago, according to a newly released timeline of interactions with Cruz’s family, a deputy investigated a report that Cruz “planned to shoot up the school” — intelligence that was forwarded to the school’s resource officer, with no apparent result.
Law enforcement in this case was absolutely incompetent at every level. The local police were called to the home of the known threat no fewer than 39 times, and did nothing to protect the community from the known threat. The known threat posted threats to shoot up his school under his own name. Tipped off to this, the FBI did… nothing. And even as known threat was inside the school building killing people, an armed police office stood outside, probably wetting his pants.
Leftists are saying, “You see! You see! A trained cop saw an AR-15 and wet his pants. This proves teachers should not be armed because they would be even less capable of confronting a shooter.” The late Aaron Feis and the JROTC students who shielded their classmates would beg to differ.
Law-abiding American gun owners should not lose our basic Constitutional Rights as a result of the complete, top-to-bottom incompetence of law enforcement. That’s like saying I should lose my driver’s license and have my car confiscated because a cop in another state waved a drunk driver through a checkpoint who went on to smash his car into a minivan and kill people.
Oh, and meanwhile, CNN frets that describing the known threat as violent murderous headcases is hurtful and stigmatizing. (Warning: Super-annoying autoplay vid at link.)
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Castreau is
on vacation making a totes legit Government Business trip to India. I never want to hear a Trump Hater ever tell me again that PDT is an international disgrace and an embarrassment to his country.
Question: When Indian Government officials visit Canada, do they wear the traditional costume of the host country?
