US California Senate ‘Debate’ | Apr 2016

California US Senate Candidates Face Off In Debate 

– KCAL / KRCA

Close to non-existent media coverage of the California Senate race for US Senate, results in two ‘front runners’ vying for ‘style’:

– If a debate happens in a Central Valley city and no one watches it because no one covered it, does it count? Like a tree falling in the forest….It wasn’t covered, which of course results in two ‘front runners.’

Only  in California.

With few exceptions, hard to believe these are the best & brightest California has to offer to represent its citizens in the US Senate. Harder to believe the MSM did not cover the debate in its entirety, nor that the full debate is not available to view anywhere. We’re still looking.

However the MSM will gladly give you their intepretation of the event, as usual focusing on ‘style’ rather than substance. /CJ

“STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — What they lacked in policy distinctions the two Democrats vying for California’s first open U.S. Senate seat in decades made up for in stylistic differences, with front-runner Attorney General Kamala Harris sticking to an attorney’s measured tones and Rep. Loretta Sanchez shooting from the hip and milking every moment for a quip.

In Monday night’s debate, Harris and Sanchez agreed on the need to create path to citizenship for people living in the United States illegally, on restricting access to weapons for those with a criminal record or history of mental illness and on the need to provide free community college education.

With only six weeks remaining until the primary, former Republican party chairmen Tom Del Beccaro and Duf Sundheim and physicist and entrepreneur Ron Unz are all trying to edge their way into voters’ minds as they vie to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer.

The three GOP candidates all sharply differed with Obama on national security, arguing that the U.S. administration has taken a failed approach in the Middle East.

Del Beccaro used his highest profile opportunity to date to take a few shots at Harris, criticizing her Department of Justice for raids earlier this month against an anti-abortion activist who made undercover videos at Planned Parenthood clinics. Harris later told reporters the raid was justified and she is doing her job as the state’s top law enforcement officer.

Tom Del Beccaro to Kamala Harris: Leave Daleiden Alone

“Tom Del Beccaro, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from California, said during a debate Monday evening that state California Attorney General Kamala Harris should end her investigation into David Daleiden, the investigative journalist who produced the videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s apparent fetal tissue trafficking scandal.

Del Beccaro, the former chairman of the California Republican Party, called on Harris – who is also a U.S. Senate candidate – to abandon the investigation into Daleiden.

Harris’ campaign website features a petition asking voters to support and protect Planned Parenthood’s federal funding. Harris received $15,000 from Planned Parenthood during her re-election campaign in 2014.

Her office conducted a raid on Daleiden’s apartment earlier in April and seized his personal property after a Los Angeles Times columnist challenged Harris for dragging her feet on an indictment of Daleiden.

Daleiden had previously been indicted in Harris County, Texas in what two pro-choice law professors referred to as “a stunning act of legal jujitsu.” The professors wrote that the indictment of Daleiden was a “deeply disturbing” outcome, both for the First Amendment and undercover citizen journalists attempting to expose corruption.

Attorney General Harris was denounced by national pro-life groups for what they argue is an abuse of power and conflict of interest.”

– Since, remarkably there is no easily available video of the entire senate race debate, no one will know if any questions were asked of Ms. Harris about the Bologna Family murders that occured in San Fran on her watch as District Attorney. Not a pretty picture. /CJ

Edwin Ramos won’t face death penalty

Edwin Ramos: Suspect in slayings of S.F. man, 2 sons will face life at most

– SF Gate | 2008

“San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris will not seek the death penalty for an alleged gang member accused of murdering a father and two of his sons, a prosecutor said Thursday.

The announcement in San Francisco Superior Court means that Edwin Ramos will at most serve life in prison without parole if convicted of the June 22, 2008, slayings of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16.

The decision is in keeping with Harris’ campaign promise never to seek the death penalty. There had been speculation, however, that with Harris running for state attorney general next year, she might shift direction in an especially notorious crime.”
