California Attorney General Xavier Becerra Adds Four More States to State Travel Ban … Alabama, Kentucky, South Dakota and Texas
WHO FINDS THIS IRONIC … LIBERALS IN CALIFORNIA HAVE A BLACK LIST TRAVEL BAN TO STATES IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT OPPOSE A TRAVEL BAN FROM TERRORIST COUNTRIES TO AMERICA?
This should be subtitled: Be very careful what you ask for, it might come true. On Thursday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra doubled the number of states subject to California’s state-sponsored travel ban adding Alabama, Kentucky, South Dakota and Texas. At some point, California will be adding 49 states to their travel ban. The California travel ban law that took effect in January; however, there are a number of exemptions to the ban on travel. For example, the the restrictions do apply to the University of California and other state schools, but the attorney general’s office would not say whether the rules would prevent an athletic team from playing an away game at one of the affected states. Well of course not, state run schools are not bought and paid for by the tax payers of California (sarcasm intended). Come on libs, grow some CO-JONES, put your money where your mouth is. A travel ban is a travel ban … why would playing a basketball game in Lexington, Kentucky against the Wildcats or a football game in Alabama against the Crimson Tide be any different? This is going to come back and bite California finally in a major way. This liberal intolerance could backfire on California big time.
Decrying a “scourge of discrimination” against LGBT individuals in four states, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Thursday doubled the number of states subject to California’s state-sponsored travel ban.
Speaking in San Francisco, Becerra increased the number of states that California state employees cannot travel to on official government business from four to eight.
The four additions — Alabama, Kentucky, South Dakota and Texas — each passed state legislation that took effect starting in March that Becerra alleged.
discriminates against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families.
“The state of California is not going to participate in discriminatory conduct by other states,” Becerra said.
The states join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee on California’s list of banned states. The first four were put in place by then-Attorney General Kamala Harris.
Four FBS California public schools are scheduled to travel to one of the eight states this season:
Cal at North Carolina
Fresno State at Alabama
San Jose State at Texas
UCLA at Memphis
And these football games are also on the books in later seasons:
2019: Cal at Ole Miss
2020: Fresno State at Texas A&M
2021: Cal at TCU
2024: Cal at Auburn
AMERICANS GROWING TIRED OF NO THERE, THERE IN RUSSIA-TRUMP INVESTIGATIONS …
From The Hill comes a recent Harvard-Harris Poll survey, comes a poll that states that a majority of Americans are tired of Congress and the MSM focuses on the so-called Trump-Russia collusion investigations and even more believe that theses investigations witch hunts are hurting the country. Although the poll shows there is concern for this issue, the overwhelming sentiment is that enough is enough and it is time to move on and do the work of the American people.
A majority of voters believe the Russia investigations are damaging to the country and are eager to see Congress shift its focus to healthcare, terrorism, national security, the economy and jobs.
Those are the findings of the latest Harvard-Harris Poll survey, provided exclusively to The Hill, which paints a complicated picture of voters’ opinions about the numerous probes that have engulfed the White House.
Sixty-four percent of voters said the investigations into President Trump and Russia are hurting the country. Fifty-six percent of voters said it’s time for Congress and the media to move on to other issues, compared to 44 percent who said the focus should stay on Russia.
But far more — 73 percent — say they’re concerned that the Russia probes have caused Congress to lose focus on the issues important to them. That figure encompasses 81 percent of Republicans, 74 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats.
Interestingly enough, the Harvard-Harris online survey of 2,237 registered voters that was conducted between June 19 and June 21 consisted of a partisan breakdown is 35 % Democrat, 29% Republican, 30% independent and 6% other. These numbers were as high as they were even with 6% more Democrats polled than Republicans.
I WOULD SAY THIS IS SHOCKING BUT IT HAS BECOME THE NORM FROM THE VILE AND HATEFUL LEFT …
Actor Johnny Depp referenced assassinating Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury, England during Cineramageddon. Depp said, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” REALLY? And we wonder why lunatics have attempted to assassinate Republican law makers why practicing baseball? REALLY? Maybe American law enforcement and the Secret Service need to pay Mr. Depp a visit when he returns home. This over the top crap of threats to Trump and those on the Right from the lunatic LEFT have got to end. Some one needs to be made an example of and prosecuted. This is not free speech and to hide behind the cowardice that it is a joke, is a joke.
“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said, to cheers from the crowd.
“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked in reference to the death of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865.
“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time,” he added.
Trey Gowdy Destroys former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson … “No Evidence Of Trump Collusion With Russia” (VIDEO)
AMAZING, SIMPLY AMAZING … OBAMA ADMINISTRATION KNEW ABOUT RUSSIAN HACKING AND DID NOTHING.
Who was covering up the Russian hacking and maybe the focus should be on the administration that was in charge at the time of the Russian hacking and what little they did about it.
The Obama administration feared that acknowledging Russian meddling in the 2016 election would reveal too much about intelligence gathering and be interpreted as “taking sides” in the race, the former secretary of homeland security said Wednesday.
“One of the candidates, as you recall, was predicting that the election was going to be ‘rigged’ in some way,” said Jeh Johnson, the former secretary, referring to President Trump’s unsubstantiated accusation before Election Day. “We were concerned that by making the statement we might, in and of itself, be challenging the integrity of the election process itself.”
Mr. Johnson’s testimony, before the House Intelligence Committee, provided a fresh insight into how the Obama administration tried to balance politically explosive information with the public’s need to know. That question also vexed federal law enforcement officials investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
RCP: Rep. Trey Gowdy Grills Jeh Johnson: “No Evidence Of Trump Collusion With Russia”
GOWDY: At the time you separated from service in January 2017, had you seen any evidence that Donald Trump or any member of his campaign colluded, conspired or coordinated with the Russians or anyone else to infiltrate or impact our voter infrastructure?
JOHNSON: Not beyond what has been out there open-source, and not beyond anything that I’m sure this committee has already seen and heard before, directly from the intelligence community. So anything I’d have on that is derivative of what the intelligence community has — and the law enforcement community.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said it is “a little ironic” that some Democrats are now complaining about the lack of help they got with the Democratic National Committee’s servers, which were compromised by Russia during the 2016 campaign season.
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testified before the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday, saying he was not pleased that the DNC did not turn over its compromised servers to the Department of Homeland Security for examination.
Host Martha McCallum asked Gowdy why he thinks Democrats might not want the DNC server examined.
Washington Free Beacon: Obama Admin’s DHS Chief Can’t Explain Why DNC Didn’t Give Hacked Servers to Law Enforcement.
“Wouldn’t that help you, number one, identify who the attacker was, and if memory serves me, this was early in the summer of 2016 when we learned of the DNC hack, so if they had turned the server over to either you or [former FBI] Director [James] Comey, maybe we would have known more and maybe there would have been more for you to report?” Gowdy asked. “So I guess what I’m asking you is, why would the victim of a crime not turn over a server to the intelligence community or to law enforcement?”
“I’m not going to argue with you, sir,” Johnson answered.
Johnson went on to say with a laugh that Gowdy’s question was “leading,” although earlier in the hearing Gowdy had told Johnson to tell him if any of his questions accidentally sounded as though they were doing just that.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP LEAVES THE SWAMPS OF WASHINGTON, DC TO TALK TO THE PEOPLE IN IOWA …
How does President Donald Trump get his message out to the American people, by by-passing the liberal and bias MSM and talking directly to We the People. President Trump provided a list of accomplishments that have been done and things that he looks to do in the future. Trump addressed Obamacare and the fact that Democrats refused to support anything that the GOP offered to replace, even though Obamacare is dying on the vine. To be honest, Trump needs to do this more often and directly talk to the America people.
“All we do is win, win, win,” he told a cheering crowd.
A feisty Trump spoke for more than an hour at a rally in Cedar Rapids that was similar to those he held during last year’s presidential campaign. It included protesters escorted out by police, Trump attacking the news media and supporters waving signs saying “Drain the Swamp” in Washington.
Trump’s first trip to Iowa since taking office on Jan. 20 came against a backdrop of problems in Washington. His legislative agenda is struggling to gain traction, a federal investigation of alleged Russian meddling into the election and possible collusion with Trump’s campaign continues and his approval rating is below 40 percent in most polls.
But Trump touted jobs gains and an improving stock market as evidence that his economic policies are working. He vowed he would eventually get funding for a border wall with Mexico – possibly with solar panels attached – despite congressional refusal thus far.
“We’re thinking about building the wall as a solar wall,” he said. “Pretty good imagination, right? It’s my ideas.”
Solar panels along the wall are among proposals that have been submitted by companies to the Department of Homeland Security, according to media reports.
Buoyed by Republican victories in special congressional elections in Georgia and South Carolina on Tuesday, Trump blasted his opponents as “unbelievably nasty” and said cable news anchors appeared stunned by the Democratic losses.
Unable to get Democrats to join Republicans in major legislative efforts, Trump said the wounding by a gunman last week of Republican Representative Steve Scalise in Alexandria, Virginia, had fostered a spirit of unity. But he did not sound optimistic about breaking through the partisan divide any time soon.
Trump said he doubted he would have help from Democrats in getting major healthcare legislation through the U.S. Congress. He wants the Senate to join the House of Representatives in approving legislation soon to reform the signature domestic achievement of his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama.
“If we went and got the single greatest healthcare plan in the history of the world we would not get one Democrat vote because they’re obstructionists,” Trump said.
