Immigrants on Massive Public Welfare in USA | Aug 11 2018

Trump’s Welfare Ban for Immigrants Would Be $57 Billion Dollar Tax Cut for American Taxpayers

|| Breitbart

“President Trump’s ban on allowing welfare-dependent legal immigrants to resettle permanently in the United States would likely save American taxpayers about $1,600 a year per immigrant.

As Breitbart News reported, the Trump administration is set to roll out a plan in the next month that bars foreign nationals who need government welfare in order to live from resettling in the U.S. Such a ban on welfare importation through immigration has been eyed by the Trump White House since February.

Such a plan would be a boon for American taxpayers, who currently spend about $57.4 billion a year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low skilled legal immigrants every year. In the last decade, the U.S. has imported more than 10 million foreign nationals and is on track to import the same amount in the coming decade if legal immigration controls are not implemented.

The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.”

Immigrants Use Close to 60% More Food Stamps Than Those Born in America

|| BigLeaguePolitics

“Immigrant households, both legal and illegal consume 33% more cash welfare than American citizen households and 44% more in Medicaid dollars. This puts a strain on public services by a whopping 44 million foreign born people and translates to the average immigrant household costing American taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare.

According to a study conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), more than 1.5 million foreign nationals who enter the country each year use an average of 57% more food stamps than the average native born American household, as reported by Breitbart.

The most recent Rasmussen Report poll finds that 62% of American voters support the Trump administration looking to discourage foreign nationals immigrating to the U.S. from using any taxpayer-funded welfare.”

Gov Brown’s Completely Dysfunctional DMV | Aug 10 2018

Constituents Wait in Long Lines While California Legislators Enjoy Exclusive DMV Options

|| Breitbart

“The Sacramento Bee reports that a DMV office exclusive to legislators is located in “the Legislative Office Building in downtown Sacramento.” The office allows active and former legislators to renew a driver’s license, register vehicles, and more without the hassle of long lines or wait times.

The focus on the legislators’ exclusive DMV office comes a week after elected Democrats defeated an effort to audit the DMV. The audit was pushed because of the excruciatingly long wait times endured throughout the state.

On average, residents of the state wait in line 69 minutes at their local DMV offices.

Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno) was the driving force behind the audit, and he blamed Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and the Democrats for not taking the people’s concerns seriously.

Patterson also spoke out against the DMV office that is exclusively for legislators. He said, “I don’t use the special privilege DMV that’s here. I have gotten my registration and all that stuff the old-fashioned way like everybody else in my district. When you are living a public life the way most private people live, you’ll understand when taxes hurt and bureaucracies hurt.”

“Firefighters were battling a brush fire Monday night that broke out in the rugged Holy Jim area of Orange County earlier in the day and exploded to cover some 4,000 acres, extending into Riverside County, officials said.

The Holy fire was reported at 1:17 p.m. near Holy Jim Canyon and Trabuco Creek roads, said Jake Rodriguez, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service.

The fire later moved toward the Main Divide forest road, within sight of Riverside County communities including south Corona, El Cerrito and Glen Ivy Hot Springs, according to the Forest Service. The Cleveland National Forest fire had climbed to the top of the ridge line northeast of Saddleback Mountain, with some small fires crossing the Main Divide Road.

The cause of the fire that scorched brush amid daytime 100-degree temperatures was under investigation.

There was no containment of the fire as of Monday evening.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered for Holy Jim Canyon, Trabuco Canyon Recreation Residence Tract and the Blue Jay and Falcon campgrounds.”

Let’s Go Back to a Simpler Time: Reagan, RFK, Hoffa, Cavett Video | Aug 03 2018

 | When we could actually speak with one another….

First Reagan and Robert Kennedy is an amazing interview:

|| Reagan does a great job of articulating his position, although he makes several errors as regards the Diem Regime and the elections in SV. RFK gets to state his view, it all happens respectfully. Great stuff.

Then a great Cavett interview, which begins at 4:20, with Jimmy Hoffa, joined by lawyer Marvin Belli, Hoffa makes some great points about being the target of the media, so apropos in today’s heated political environment:

Then, that time with:

A Roast with Don Rickles, when we could laugh about politics:

|| He roasted Reagan. Hurrah.

 

 

 

Sen Dianne Feinstein had a Chinese Communist Spy on her Staff | Aug 02 2018

Feinstein had a Chinese spy connection she didn’t know about — her Chinese limo driver

|| SFGate

“A staffer in U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco office was fired a few years back after being linked to Chinese spying in the Bay Area.

According to a Politico Magazine story on Silicon Valley espionage, the Feinstein staffer was suspected of providing political intelligence — but nothing classified — to his handlers, with one former intelligence official telling author Zach Dorfman that the suspected informant was “run” by officials based at the local Chinese Consulate.

A local source who knew about the incident confirmed to us that the FBI showed up at Feinstein’s office in Washington, D.C., about five years ago to alert the then-chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee that her driver was being investigated for possible Chinese spying.

Besides driving her around when she was in California, the staffer also served as gofer in her San Francisco office and as a liaison to the Asian American community, even attending Chinese Consulate functions for the senator.

According to our source, the intrigue started years earlier when the staffer took a trip to Asia to visit relatives and was befriended by someone who continued to stay in touch with him on subsequent visits.

That someone was connected with the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of State Security.

“He didn’t even know what was happening — that he was being recruited,” says our source. “He just thought it was some friend.”

The FBI apparently concluded the driver hadn’t revealed anything of substance.

“They interviewed him, and Dianne forced him to retire, and that was the end of it,” says our source.

“None of her staff ever knew what was going on,” the source added. “They just kept it quiet.”

Question: Did Feinstein ‘collude’ with the Chinese Government or was she simply ‘asleep at the wheel?’

Either way, she needs to hang it up and retire. We can’t afford such incompetence from a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee employed a Chinese spy?

California in Flames, Where is Governor Brown? | July 28 2018

As Carr Fire grows, bodies of woman, 2 children found in Redding ruins, Governor Brown Missing In Action

|| SFGate

“REDDING — The bodies of a great-grandmother and two young children, reported missing soon after a huge wildfire began its push into Redding two days ago, were found Saturday in the ashes of their home.

Family members had mounted a desperate search for Melody Bledsoe and her great-grandchildren, Emily Roberts, 5, and James Roberts, 4, at shelters and hospitals. They were ultimately summoned to the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, sobbing and hugging as they entered the building, to hear the news.

The family said authorities told them the 4-year-old had called 911 from the house.

“My nephew called, scared, for help, but they said they couldn’t make it in time,” said Carla Bledsoe, the children’s aunt.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko confirmed bodies were found at the scene, although the victims have not been officially identified.

The confirmation from the family brought the death toll in the Shasta County Carr Fire to five, including two firefighters killed earlier. One was bulldozer operator Don Ray Smith, 81, of Pollock Pines, who authorities identified Saturday. Also killed was Jeremy Stoke, a fire inspector with the Redding Fire Department.

The massive wildfire continued to rage out of control, prompting new evacuations to be added to the nearly 40,000 people displaced by the blaze. One of the main evacuation shelters in Redding was at capacity, and additional shelters in churches opened to meet demand.

The aggressive blaze, fueled by winds and scorching temperatures — it was 104 in Redding on Saturday — nearly doubled in size from Friday to Saturday. It grew to 80,906 acres — about 125 square miles — and was only 5 percent contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Safety. On Friday, the fire was 48,312 acres.

The blaze ignited Monday from a vehicle mechanical failure near Whiskeytown, about 30 miles west of Redding, fire officials said. High temperatures and low humidity made the blaze unpredictable and fast-moving, creating fire tornadoes that uprooted trees and overturned cars. It was growing on three different fronts, officials said.”

Carr Fire update: 38,000 evacuated, 500 buildings burned as blaze ravages Redding area

|| Mercury News

“REDDING — Adding a shocking new intensity to California’s already bad summer fire season, a major fire continued to rage out of control Friday in Shasta County, burning homes in city neighborhoods in Redding and displacing 38,000 people as firefighters battled in temperatures close to 110 degrees.

The Carr Fire, which began Monday, has killed two firefighters, injured three more, destroyed 500 structures, scorched more than 45,000 acres and is threatening thousands of homes across the city.

“It was like a tornado,” said Joyce Cox-Sacco, of Redding. “It was so horrific.”

From her home on Amethyst Way, Cox-Sacco watched from a distance Thursday night as firefighters battled the fire on a nearby ridge. But as darkness fell, she said, the fire started advancing quickly toward her house, and she knew she had to leave.

On Friday, Cox-Sacco was boarding up the garage door of her house, which was ripped off, along with the roof, during the fire. The top of her chimney lay across the street, having been swept off by wind or debris as the fire barreled through her neighborhood.

Officials with Cal Fire, the state’s firefighting agency, reiterated Friday the danger facing Redding, and the region around the city of 91,000 people. The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for Redding through Monday morning, with temperatures up to a scorching 111 degrees.

“These are extreme conditions,” Cal Fire Chief Ken Pimlott said during a news conference. “Evacuate. Evacuate. Evacuate. Leave before you are asked to leave.”

Temecula Man Charged With Starting Cranston Fire

|| KTLA

“A Temecula man pleaded not guilty Friday to charges he intentionally started nine fires, including the still-burning Cranston Fire that has scorched more than 12,000 acres in the Idyllwild area.

Brandon McGlover, 32, was charged with 15 felony counts in connection with the nine separate fires, which were started Wednesday in the Idyllwild, Anza and Sage areas, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office stated in a news release.

McGlover was arrested without incident that same day the fire started, shortly after he was detained by members of the Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force who located him in the area.

The largest of the fires McGlover allegedly started was still burning Friday in the Idyllwild area. The Cranston Fire had scorched 12,300 acres, destroyed at least five homes, and was about 16 percent contained as of Friday evening.

McGlover has been charged with one count of aggravated arson, five counts of arson of an inhabited structure, and nine counts of arson of forest or wildland.

He entered a not guilty plea Friday afternoon at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta. He was ordered to return for a felony settlement conference on Sept. 24.

The judge set his bail at $3.5 million.”
