I Accept Seiler's Advice for CAGOP: Audacity All the Way!

I don't often read articles on the Fox and Hounds website.

There's so little time, but at least FlashReport reminds me that I can find good articles on that site.

Then I found this article:


Finally, someone is reading my mind, sharing my sentiments.

The California Republican Party has continually chosen accommodation instead of confrontation. There is not enough fight in Sacramento, and Republicans are not grabbing enough of the headlines. While the rest of the RNC conference has learned to overcome the media and play offense--just as Donald Trump did--California Republicans are still playing defense, trying to look good in the eyes of the press.

Consider this dual interview on ABC 7 between CAGOP Treasurer Mario Guerra and LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis. Click here.

I have a lot of respect for Mario Guerra. He stands strong for family values. He is very attentive to the state measures hurting the working class.

But when he shared a dais with Hilda Solis, he spent a lot of time talking about finding common ground. He did not mention the millions of dollars that Solis and her colleagues are wasting to protect illegal aliens instead of fighting for California's citizens.

There were plenty of changes for Guerra to slam and shame Solis' failing policies.

And we are not seeing enough of this fight.

On the other hand, state assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Menifee) excoriated her colleagues for their anti-Trump resolutions from December.

She has just introduced legislation to turn California into a Second Amendment "shall issue" state. What a great policy, even if the bill has no change of passing (or does it?).

Did anyone see what happened to state senator Janet Nguyen on the floor of the State Senate this past week?

Here's a video clip:



I am so proud of Senator Nguyen having the courage to speak out against the atrocities of the Vietnam War. She also criticized the late Senator Tom Hayden for his opposition to the Vietnam war, which lead to the deaths of many more Vietnamese.

Hayden was a raging, anti-American leftist. More people should be criticizing that men and spare not venting.

This is the kind of audacity we need to see more from our California Republican representatives.

I also appreciated Assemblyman Gallagher's vocal opposition to anti-First Amendment Attorney General Xavier Becerra:



How about Assemblyman Travis Allen's boldness to shame State Senator Holly Mitchell's misguided law which has decriminalized child prostitution? Let's state the facts plainly--this legislation has essentially legalized the ongoing exploitation of children on California's streets.

More Californian's should embrace and champion State Senator Joel Anderson's drive to end sanctuary cities. This initiative should have happened last year, but I say better late than never.

This is the kind of audacity I want to see in Sacramento.

It was both astonishing are sections of John Seiler's article about Audacity!



If Donald Trump’s victory has taught Republicans across the land anything, it’s to follow Danton’s cry to the Assembly (the French one, not the one in Sacramento): Audacity! Audacity! Always Audacity!

Donald Trump did not shy away from conflict and controversy. That's wrong. Californians need to stop being afraid of the press or the hatred of the libreal media. They are going to denounce conservatives, anyway, so why should we care? Besides, Trump has trounced the media so savagely, that no one listens to them or believes what they say anymore.

The Bush-Dole-Bush-McCain-Romney sellouts on so many issues, of blending with the Democrats’ socialism, is over. California’s version is the Pete Wilson-Arnold Schwarzenegger-Meg Whitman sellouts, which wimpified the party in this state. That’s why Republicans keep losing.

That's a great way to put it: the wimpification of the CAGOP. Republicans in Sacramento act like weak beta males who don't take the first step

Wilson, actually, is the exception that proves the rule. After winning the governorship in 1990, he wimped out and joined Democrats in raising taxes a then-record $7 billion. More taxes came in 1993. Down and seemingly out for his re-election in 1994, he grasped the Proposition 187 limitation in immigration and beat Kathleen Brown.

After reviewing Wilson's record, it was pretty substantive how much he caved and accommodated the Democratic agenda in Sacramento. I have noticed that other Republican governors stressed trying to work together with the legislature rather than focusing on long-term conservative solutions and refusing to back down from that agenda.



Wilson needed Prop 187 for his re-election bid. That initiative passed by 59% in "liberal" California.

Forget the media narrative which tells Republicans that they alienated Hispanic voters with this law. Hello! Republicans used the law to prop up their election bids, but nothing more. When the arrogant, unconstitutional federal judge struck down the initiative, they GOP wimped out. They should have fought harder or pressed for impeachment and removal of that arrogant judge!

Seiler then reminds readers that Cesar Chavez opposed illegal immigration, and pressed on his UFW members to report illegals to ICE

When will Republicans start celebrating Chavez? Can anyone imagine the shockwaves that would break out throughout Sacramento and the state of California if Republicans began championing this labor leader? Then they could add to their praise for Chavez: "I support this farmer worker because he supported secure borders and opposed illegal immigration."

BAM!

Notice how Seiler stresses that California Republicans should work with Trump, not against him.

Here's another issue that Republicans can champion, that has been all but ignored by the major parties: housing.

Elephant Decal (Credit: Ebay)


Republicans should embrace the old middle-class ideal of affordable housing – not through government subsidies, but through ending zoning restrictions.

WOW! What a concept. The problem is that the Republicans are not actively fighting for this need.

Seiler then listed other wining issues for California Republicans:
  1. Cut taxes massively
  2. Cut bureaucracy and waste
  3. Redo unfair trade deals
  4. Rebuild the infrastructure 
  5. Reform welfare,
  6. End “environmental” restrictions
  7. Bring back good manufacturing jobs


A theme of standing out, fighting back, and making a difference stands out. With Republicans back to a super-minority status, the temptation is great to slink back and play nice, or give up entirely

Not me, and I hope that California Republican elected officials step out of their shell and fight back.

Even if Republicans lose, they can go down with all flags flying. What do we have to lose?

And I submit that we have a great deal to gain!

CAGOP Spring 2017 Convention: Getting There

The CAGOP Convention Spring 2017 was not my first convention.

I had gone to the Fall 2015 Convention because of a gift from a well-connected Republican in West Covina named Joe Gardner.

He had connected with my through Facebook 2 years earlier, when he had asked me if I was interested in becoming a delegate. He had reached out to me because of all the posts I had written about Republican policies and values.

Since I was young, I was heavily invested in American political history and politics. During my third year in college, I researched the Congressional re-districting and cut out the new map to post on my wall.



Today, I am not just swimming in my element, but networking with others to make a difference.

This year, a candidate for partisan office appointed me a delegate to vote in the convention on rules, platform reforms, etc.

Friday morning, before I took my flight to the convention, I feared that this event would not be as compelling as I had anticipated. A friend of mine the West Los Angeles area confided to me that he often skips conventions because nothing really happens.

Fortunately, I was surprised about how eventful the weekend turned out.

This convention was a full-course program for me. I have never scheduled the motel stay, the car rental, along with the plane ticket and the other costs. Finally, I learned that I can park my car for the weekend in a safe parking lot near the airport, then take a free shuttle to the departure terminals.

Forgive me that I am learning to do so much at this stage of my life, but I say "Better late than never."

I had to turn in a little earlier, since I was so exhausted--but had a great time nonetheless.

I was surprised to see so many campaign signs on the convention floor, even though the elected offices were all but uncontested.



Huge and welcome, yet compact, I found the convention center inviting from the moment I walked in.

Sacramento was cold! Even by early afternoon, the temperature never rose about 55 degrees.  I have to admit I missed the South Bay for that reason. It's February, and Los Angeles has grazed the low 70s. At least it wasn't snowing in the state capital.

The drive to LAX, parking the car, the shuttle to the airport, the flight to Sacramento was busy but not unbearable. Because the flight was delayed, a face a slightly greater struggle getting to my motel in the city. At this time, there is no justification to pay $300 for a weekend stay at a hotel.

The next morning, I made my way to the Regency Hyatt Convention Center.

Most guests had checked in Friday morning, but I needed a personal day to prepare for everything, and be ready for anything which I had not anticipated.

I was looking forward to a busy and fruitful weekend.



Today, I Joined the #DumpKelloggs Movement

Corporations are going liberal.

The socialist agenda which former President Barack Obama had fostered has lost all three major institutions in Washington DC.

They have also been decimated at the state and local government levels.

The new DNC Chairman acknowledges that his party has a lot of work to do, especially in state and local government. Democrats have long ignored

And they are going to be left behind if they keep up this nonsensical embrace of anti-free market policies.



They are regressive leftists at Kelloggs's.

The founder of the company was a batty Seven Day Adventist.

He believed that certain foods caused insanity or sexual immorality.

His health care clinic in the United States was committed to this new-age type of body-mind connections and training.

Crazy but true.

Today, Kellogg's embraces and helps fund left-wing groups like Black Lives Matter.

Then the food company announced that they were boycotting Breitbart News and refused to buy further ads on the news site. Why? The same left-wing litany of non-offensive:


  • homophobic
  • sexist
  • racist
  • misogynist
  • classist
  • elitist
  • #FakeNews
  • Blah, blah, blah

The biggest mistake from Kellogg's attacking Breibart?

The corporation attacked Breitbart's readers, too.

Another "Deplorables" Movement has overtaken the left. They cannot hide their deep-rooted disdain for ordinary people, for working people.

Consumers--both of breakfast food products and news--signaled their complete disgust and junked Kellogg's products.

I finally joined the final purge and boycott:

Popcorn: Southeastern LA County Dems Attack Each Other With the Trump Card

What is happening in Southeastern Los Angeles County Politics is nothing short of amazing.

Or better yet--amazingly stupid.

But it many signal good news for Republicans inLos Angeles County who want to make some kind of difference.

In Huntington Park California, two prominent Democrats are running for re-election or running for a seat on the city council.

Valentin Amezquita and Laura Herrera.

And this is the latest attack flyer which hit Huntington Park mail boxes:


Valentin Palos Amezquita sits on the city council for Huntington Park.

He is the only member who has routinely spoken out against corruption, based on visits to the city council plus his statements before the city council during public comment as a private citizen.

If this man was racist against who exactly? Hispanics? Asians? The flyer is very unclear about this.

If he really did not like his own ethnic heritage, then why would he serve on the Huntington Park City Council in the first place?

But to compare Valentin--a Democrat--to Donald Trump?

Now this is just crazy!

What is going on with the Los Angeles County Democratic Party?

They are now using the Trump card to attack fellow Democrats?

Will this kind of tactic work in the short and the long-term?

How many prospective voters are going to look at these mailers and believe what they are reading?

Check out the other side of this inflammatory and deeply false mailer, too:


Laura Herrera opposes religious liberty.

She does not think that America First" is an acceptable view or value.

She is pro-charter schools, though, and anti-corruption.

She also ran for the 53rd AD Democratic Central Committee and was the top vote getter, beating Huntington Park Cty Councilwoman Karina Macias by a few thousands votes.

That spells big trouble for Macias going into March 7, and add to that setback the newspaper reports about Macias and her criminal dealings with private vendors and the awarding of contracts.

How could a Democratic operative by anywhere near a Trump supporter or even sympathizer?

This brazen fraud may very well backfire.

In the meantime, Republicans should take advantage of these divides and start winning elections in these regions, where voters are simply looking for honest government, fiscal discipline, and a careful attention to city safety and security.

Daily Breeze Journalism Fails Re: Revocation of BCR Charter

Sometimes, blogging and pulling apart the errors, distortions, and mistakes of the Daily Breeze or other local newspapers is just too easy.

And too much fund.

It's like shooting fish in a barrel full of monkeys.

Here is the full article content in bold letters, with my comments interspersed to expose why they not only got the story wrong, but demonstrate the structural and language issues which the paper's journalist Nick Green has also revealed:

County GOP revokes charter of Redondo Beach Republican club led by fiery activist

The county’s GOP leadership has revoked the charter of the Redondo Beach-based Beach Cities Republican Club for attacking members of its executive committee.

Is that really the case? Janice Webb was not elected to the Central Committee when I exposed her decision to contact my work and induce my boss to pressure me to cancel a meeting..

No specifics were offered on the nature of the attacks nor would Jason Maruca, executive director of the Los Angeles County Republican Party, provide more information.

“This matter pertains to an internal issue,” a party statement said. “We’re not going to be issuing a statement or commenting on the matter.”

Perhaps the County leaders realized that it's not a great idea to allow Jason Maruca to issue statements of any kind, since I will print to them for the public and expose to everyone his poor writing.

"Spellcheck is my friend."


However, the club issued a short statement on its Facebook page that said its executive committee made the decision to “pull the charter because chartered organizations are required to be in compliance with its bylaws.

And yet the Executive did not comply with its own, nor did the committee enforce the same rules against previous members.

“(The) Republican Party of Los Angeles County attempted to work with the Beach Cities Republican Club to resolve this situation,” the statement reads in part. “Specifically, BCR President Arthur Schaper was given a list of steps the club could have taken to come back into compliance with RPLAC, however those steps were declined by Mr. Schaper. Instead, the leadership of BCR continued to attack RPLAC and its members.”

No they didn't. and the reason I was "attacking" certain leaders in the RPLAC organization was the corrupt actions and unethical behavior which Central Committee members were engaging in.

It’s unclear what bylaw the local Republican club violated.

Hat-tip, Nick Green. To this day, I am still unsure what exactly I did wrong, since I was getting mixed messages from Maruca, Vafiades, Aminoff, etc/

Schaper said via email that he and one of the county’s largest and most active GOP clubs “was a victim of internal bullying.”

I acknowledge that the Daily Breeze reporter Nick Green finally printed some of the comments from the email which I had sent to him. He still needs to print a correction in the Daily Breeze, though, since the printed version still reads that I did not respond.

“This purging in establishment GOP institutions is happening more often than it should,” he wrote. “I was a whistleblower for abusive behavior against me and my club, and in a petty attempt to silence or de-legitimize us, they revoked our charter — and for the most unjustified of reasons.”

BAM! Put the above paragraph on full blast, folks!

Schaper, a Torrance resident who writes under the name Arthur Christopher Schaper, is well known locally as a fiery conservative, orator and blogger, who has blogged extensively about the conflict between the club and county GOP leadership.

The term "orator" is very respectful. I take great pleasure in that term.

"Fiery conservative" WOW! I should add that title to my resume when I get a chance.

“Arthur seems to like a good battle,” said David Hadley, a former local assemblyman and president of the Beach Cities Republican Club. “Arthur is an activist. I am aware of some of the attacks on individual people.”

Hat tip, former Assemblyman David Hadley.

Schaper also is the California director for a group called Mass Resistance, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has called an anti-gay hate group.

This is the biggest bunch of BS yet. Any journalist who resorts to the Southern Poverty Law Center for a sound bite on "hate" will find other pro-family groups listed there, including Tony Perkins' group the Family Research Council. SPLC has no legitimacy, and even Ann Coulter symbolically disembowled this fraudulent social justice legal firm.

Then came the real lack of integrity in the Daily Breeze send-up:

In a December article, the Orange County Weekly said Schaper was “fast becoming one of Southern California’s most obnoxious conservative, Bible-quoting activists.”

 OC Weakly?

Was that the extent of Green's research?

The OC Weakly, which hasn't written a hit story of any substance in .... ten to twenty years?

The same rag which parades anti-white racism as another form of social justice activism?

Remember that the hard-core race-baiting "humorist" Gustavo Arrellano spends more time writing foodie articles than anything else.

For real.

In several January blog posts an unrepentent [Sic--spelling error) Schaper ranted against the charter revocation, calling it “treachery which undermines volunteer clubs and takes the lead to revoke charters for light and transient reasons.”



"Rant" by its nature speaks of audible speech. People cannot rant in their writings. They can "Excoriate", "condemn, or "denounce.'

Ranting is a verbal, vocal exercise. Simple as that.

“This whole charter business has turned out to be a smokescreen for well-dressed irrelevance,” Schaper wrote. “The Beach Cities Republicans has gained more numbers, fame, and influence after losing the ‘revered’ charter.”

YES! YES! YES!


It’s unknown if that claim is accurate.

Isn't it the job of a reporter to search for answers? Did Nick Green really end his article with a big question mark of doubt to challenge an assertion for a club president.

It's a slow news day ...
Let me write about something that happened one month ago ...


Really?

This is just such a low standard when it comes to journalism.

He could have contacted other leaders in the club.

He could have checked out photographs on Facebook or Twitter.

Apparently, he relied on simple Google searches to find the OC Weakly article and to find out about the fraudulent smear from the SPLC.

Could he not have spent another 15 minutes verifying or debunking my claims about the club's growth?

But he did not even bother to ...

And speaking of not researching:

1. I sent Nick Green the emails which I had received from Gary Aminoff and Jason Maruca. He did nothing with them.

2. I printed the letters claiming that the BCR club and I had done irreplaceable harm (blah, blah, blah) to the party. They provided no information about what I had or had not done. There were ephemeral complaints, which I followed up on--and they turned out to be a big fat nothing.

It was a total rush job from beginning to end just to get rid of me because they do not like me for whatever reason.



One other thing that I must mention.

The Beach Cities Republicans charter was revoked in January

January 16, to be precise:

So, why is Nick Green writing a story about this revocation one month later?

Yes, read that again--one month later?

Republicans (Especially in California), It's Time to Get Audacious

About three weeks ago, I read the following article by John Seiler:


Finally, someone is reading my mind, sharing my sentiments. I would have made one change to the title: “Advice for All Republicans.”

The California Republican Party (and I would submit the RNC as a whole for the longest time) has continually chosen accommodation instead of confrontation.

For me, there is not enough fight in Sacramento, and Republicans are not grabbing enough of the headlines. Following President Trump’s victory, the rest of the RNC conference has learned to overcome the media and play offense.

But California Republicans are still playing defense, trying to look good and make nice. Consider this dual interview on ABC 7 between California GOP State Treasurer Mario Guerra and LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis. I have a lot of respect for Mario Guerra. He stands for family values. He is very attentive to the state tax measures hurting the working class.




But on the dais with Hilda Solis, Guerra spent a lot of time seeking common ground. He did not mention the millions of dollars that Solis and her colleagues are wasting to protect illegal aliens instead of fighting for California's citizens. There were plenty of chances for Guerra to slam and shame Solis' failing policies.

On the other hand, State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Menifee) excoriated her colleagues for their anti-Trump resolutions from December. She just introduced legislation to turn California into a Second Amendment "shall issue" state. What a great, daring policy!

This past week, State Senator Janet Nguyen (R-Long Beach, Garden Grove) stood her ground on the floor to denounce the uber-leftist husband of Hanoi Jane Fonda, deceased State Senator Tom Hayden. Check out the video clip here.

State Senator Nguyen spoke out against the atrocities of the Vietnam War. She also criticized the late Senator Tom Hayden for his opposition to the Vietnam war, which lead to the deaths of many more Vietnamese. The presiding officer, the officious State Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) ruled her out of order, then directed the Sergeants at Arms to remove her. It was a shameful display, exposing the dictatorial arrogance of California Democratic Party. Nguyen’s speech is the kind of audacity we need to see from California Republican representatives.

Check out Assemblyman James Gallagher's vocal opposition to anti-First Amendment Attorney General Xavier Becerra. Assemblyman Travis Allen's boldly exposed a misguided law which decriminalized child prostitution, despite media onslaughts defending the law. But the truth is that this legislation essentially legalized the ongoing exploitation of children on California's streets. More Californians—and Americans!--should celebrate State Senator Joel Anderson's drive to end sanctuary cities. This initiative should have happened last year, but better late than never.

This is the kind of audacity that Republicans need in Sacramento.

One section of John Seiler's article summed up the new spirit of Republican audacity in California, which is already sweeping the rest of the country:

If Donald Trump’s victory has taught Republicans across the land anything, it’s to follow Danton’s cry to the Assembly (the French one, not the one in Sacramento): Audacity! Audacity! Always Audacity!

Audacity, Audacity, and more Audacity


Donald Trump did not shy away from conflict and controversy. That's wrong. Californians need to stop being afraid of the press or the hatred of the liberal media. They are going to denounce conservatives, anyway, so why should we care? Besides, Trump has trounced the media so savagely, that no one listens to them or believes what they say anymore.

Seiler than slammed the weak-kneed GOP phalanx Dole-McCain-Romney, which lead to the wimpification of the CAGOP. Republicans in Sacramento act like weak beta males who don't take the first step and ask the girl out.

Enough!

Republicans in California and across the country should learn a difference from the Prop 187 situation. Californians of all backgrounds and large numbers supported cutting off all benefits to illegal aliens—Hispanic, Black, Asian, as well as Caucasian voters. The initiative received 59% of the vote, more than Governor Pete Wilson’s re-election bid.

After reviewing Wilson's record, it was pretty substantive how much he caved and accommodated the Democratic agenda in Sacramento. Like Republicans today,   he and other Republican governors stressed “working together”—i.e. doing what Democrats wanted—rather than focusing on long-term conservative solutions and refusing to back down from that agenda. Wilson needed Prop 187 for his re-election bid. To this day, Wilson stands by his support for that law.

The media lies when they claim that California Republicans alienated Hispanic voters. Wrong! Republicans used the law to prop up their election bids, but stopped there. When the arrogant federal judge struck down the initiative, they GOP wimped out. They should have pressed for impeachment and removal of that arrogant judge!

Seiler then reminds readers that Cesar Chavez opposed illegal immigration, and pressed on his UFW members to report illegals to ICE.

When will Republicans start celebrating Chavez? Imagine the shockwaves breaking out across state of California if Republicans championed this labor leader … because he supported secure borders and opposed amnesty.

Here's another issue that Republicans can champion, until recently ignored by the major parties: housing.  WOW! What a concept. The problem is that the Republicans are not actively fighting for this need.



Seiler then listed other wining issues for California Republicans:
  1. Cut taxes massively
  2. Cut bureaucracy and waste
  3. Redo unfair trade deals
  4. Rebuild the infrastructure 
  5. Reform welfare,
  6. End “environmental” restrictions
  7. Bring back good manufacturing jobs

A theme of standing out, fighting back, and making a difference stands out. With California Republicans back to a super-minority status, the temptation is great to slink back and play nice, or give up entirely. Not me, and I hope that California Republican elected officials step out of their shell and fight back. Even if Republicans lose, they can go down with all flags flying.


What do we have to lose? And I submit that California Republicans have a great deal to gain!

First Impressions of Sacramento: So Much Poverty

Sacramento, California.

The last time I visited the state capitol, I was finishing my last year in college.

I saw what everything looked like from the upstairs galley surround the state senate floor, but that was it.

I did not spend a lot of time in the city, either, since I was just passing through that year.

15 years later, I visit Sacramento for real and really walk the town and talk to the people.

I decided to stay at a Motel 6 rather than stay at the more expensive Regency Hyatt. For that, I ended up seeing much of the city which I had not expected to make contact with.

The first and dominant feature throughout Sacramento?

The abject poverty.

I can't believe how many people I have seen in Sacramento who are on the street.

I expect the dinginess and rampant homelessness in Los Angeles or San Francisco.

Not as beautiful as advertised


But Sacramento?

Even though the city is smaller that those two larger urban areas, the moral decay is stifling.

After driving around the city, I noticed so many hanging out in fast food restaurants.

I visited one fast food place, and an elderly woman had been standing out in front with her walker.

Later tonight, she was still there.

This is incredible, and incredibly depressing.

This is the state capital of California, yet a dingy malaise of poverty and misfortune just hovers over everything.

The city does not look or feel clean. A sense of dull failure just dominates the city.

Downtown is better, perhaps, but the majority of people in this city live ... all around the city.

This is the best that Sacramento leaders could provide? Really?!

This is terrible.

The Face of Insane, Left-Wing Anti-Trump Derangement Syndrome (LA Version, Part One)

The anti-Trump hate is incredible.

Los Angeles has a particularly virulent strain of anti-Trump hate.

Probably because many of them are illegal aliens or amnesty panders overcome with Western guilt.

It is particularly disturbing how Los Angeles has turned into a warmer, slightly less expensive version of San Francisco.

The unchecked, rampant liberalism is hard to control.

But it's pretty funny once you get used to it!

Check out this video of Congresswoman Judy Chu--she was really bummed about Trump's victory. Funny!



Then check out what these spoiled rich people from Palos Verdes thought:


This was really funny.

These people could not explain why they were protesting!

It was unreal. They had all these posters attacking Donald Trump, then they claimed that I was hijacking their protest.

I think the lack of logic had already hijacked it for them.

Then there was this Marxist professor who was defending communistic policies:



He didn't make any sense. Liberalism in general doesn't make any sense.

This lady attended the Women's March in Downtown Los Angeles.

She was respectfully, but terribly uninformed:


Here are more scenes from the Women's March:



The signs were vulgar and anti-feminist, if I may so bold. The flagrant vulgarity of the posters and the protesters would overcome any bad words or coarse arguments from the Trump campaign:



When I went to Claremont to protest a sanctuary city proposal, I ran into uite a few snowflakes, liberal loonies, and hilarious crazies!

Check out this elderly man and another college student:



This older man could not justify or respond to the deaths of Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

The other student was respectful enough to ask me some questions, but he misapplied key scriptures to somehow justify the flouting of our laws.

This beta male was a hoot!



He got closer and closer to me and it was very discomfiting.

He seemed to get really angry as I explained to him that I had every right to speak at the Claremont City Council meeting.

Creepy!

This thug took my phone! He was really triggered!



Then I called them out in front of everyone.

Others started to shout, demanding that I delete whatever I had recorded.

Not gonna h



Here are my comments to the Claremont City Council:



Here, an adult child went crazy when I asked him to explain why President Trump is a liar:



He was really upset about being recorded. Why do these liberals hate going on record?

What is their problem?! Maybe because they start to realize that they believe complete nonsense.

Then came this follow up from a couple more slacker college kids:



This guy was a full-core Bernie maniac.

He was willing to answer my questions, and I was ready to answer his.

The younger man above was calmer than most.

January 29, 2017 at LAX.

This old crone was HILARIOUS!

You want to see what anti-Trump, left-wing insanity looks like?

This old lady --she called me a nazi, racist, and stupid. But every time I asked her, she would stop and stutter.

She was something else!



After pummeling her with questions, and exposing her embittered ignorance, she shut up!

The video above is a great place to stop and let you have fun with what the terribly misinformed--and racist--anti-Trump protesters look like and how they "think."


Canyon News Report of Pro-Trump Counter Protest at LAX, Jan. 29, 2017

From Canyon News:

LOS ANGELES—Thousands of protestors gathered in front of the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX Sunday, January 29 in opposition to the Trump administration’s new policies regarding immigration from several predominantly Muslim countries.

...

Across the street from the main group of thousands of anti-Trump protestors a tiny counter protest was held. The small group mainly stayed in their own area surrounded by police.

One pro-Trump protestor in a red “Make America Great Again” hat did venture into the larger group. He loudly proclaimed his views with a bullhorn, and was met with mostly argumentation and mockery before disengaging.



Arthur Schaper, President of the Beach Cities Republicans, was one of the few counter demonstrators. He rejected the idea that Trump is bigoted, and cited several Trump supporters of different races he knows.

“I support Donald Trump. I do support the temporary ban. I support the big, beautiful wall along our southern border,” Schaper said.

He expressed displeasure with people he sees as “miseducated, uneducated, or on purpose being distortionary” about the new laws, which he states are not a Muslim ban. He claims these countries both have a pattern of terrorism domestically, and of people leaving and committing acts of terror. He said there isn’t a reason to fear people just because they’re from those countries.

“For example, Christians from Syria, Christians from Egypt. I’m not afraid of them,” Schaper said.

He did state that while he is not against individual Muslims, he does have objections to Islam.

“The ideology of Islam, it teaches violence and death to those who don’t submit. In Islam, you’re taught that there are countries where it’s either nations of submission to Islam, or nations of war,” Schaper said. “We have to be realistic. Now Muslims in general. They could be apostate. They may not really believe it. They may call themselves Muslim but not adhere to anything in the Koran.”

He said he agrees with what he claims former Muslims say.





“They love Muslims, so do I, but I am very much against Islam, and I’m very much aware and very concerned about the terrorist threats that we’ve seen” he said specifically citing Syria, Libya and Egypt as causes for concern. He also said he believes a Muslim is more likely to commit a terrorist attack than a non-Muslim, although he said he didn’t know exact percentages and it depended on their level of entrenchment “in the ideology.”

Another counter protestor, Robin Hvidston, supports Trump’s immigration stance. She believes the government should be more focused on aiding constituencies like the American homeless population.

“The people of the world need to stand up in their own countries,” Hvidston said. “We want the world to be a peaceful, wonderful place, and we need the citizens of the globe to stand up and fight in their home countries.”

When asked if she had ever been in a situation like a civil war, she stated that she was currently in one as she considered the opposing protests Sunday to be similar to war torn Syria.

A




Del Aire, CA--Housing Prices Through the Roof!

I was walking around in the Del Air Section of Los Angeles County.

It's an unincorporated region, with no direct city council or mayor to represent the citizens.

The property values in the area are bursting through the roof!

Housing prices are out of control in the South Bay--all over.

It's incredible!

I saw a fixer-upper on 119th Street.

The real estate agent is offering the home for ... guess!

$400,000?

How about $500,000?

Nope!

The asking price is $699,000!



For a fixer-upper cradled in the Southwestern region of Los Angeles County, between Hawthorne California and Los Angeles.

LAX airport is just north of the area, with the LA County Metro train.

I would imagine such transportation elements would discourage prospective buyers.

But the housing market is only getting hotter.

Housing prices have skyrocketed in large measure because the Wiseburn School District is now unified! This little district has the highest test scores for kids of all ethnic backgrounds. They are now expanding enrollment with new high schools in the East El Segundo corridor, too.

Isn't this incredible?

But it's also disturbing, and speaks to the difficulty young people face to purchase a home.

Friends of mine who have lived in the South Bay for decades are now inferring their title to their children, since it's the only way for working families to help their children own a home.

For the price listed above, a buyer could purchase 3 homes in Texas!

A mansion costs around $500,000 in the Lone Star State, too.

What is happening in this state?!

No one can afford to live here anymore.

The rent was raised on my home, too!
