California: No Longer A Felony To Knowingly Expose Someone Or Blood Supply To HIV

Leftist protect criminals and put others in danger.

While it’s true that AIDS no longer is an automatic death sentence, it’s still deadly. In 2014, the last year for which I could find data, 6,721 died directly from AIDS, and there are tens of thousands of new infections. Legal Insurrection 

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.

The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.

Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.

“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Wiener said in a statement. “HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.”  LATimes

Militant Public School Teacher Took Students To Antifa Protests, Lied About Absences

Yvette Felarca should be terminated.  She ” unauthorized after-school trip where she left a student behind and later.”   Felarca is indoctrinating students with her violent Antifa political ideas to students in a tax-payer funded school.   She should not be teaching any child.

Court documents show that the California public school teacher arrested last week at the University of California, Berkeley, on suspicion of battery and resisting arrest has since 2009 racked up a list of fire-worthy offenses, including recruiting students to participate in protests facilitated by the militant left-wing group, By Any Means Necessary, and transporting students to protests without permission in her personal vehicle.

Yvette Felarca (cited in some court documents as “Yvonne”), a Berkeley Unified School District middle school teacher, was arrested Sept. 26 during a Free Speech Week protest on campus that turned violent.

Felarca is already under indictment for “assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, participating in a riot, and inciting a riot” when she was caught on video punching a man in the stomach and screaming, “Get the f*** off our streets!” during a June 2016 white supremacist protest in Sacramento. Felarca later stated her actions were “not a crime.”

2016

Felarca is an outspoken leader of BAMN, an arm of the violent, self-proclaimed “anti-fascist” group Antifa. Felarca was placed on paid administrative leave in September 2016 while BUSD investigated “concerns [Felarca] may have engaged in inappropriate conduct,” a case document shows. The letter informing Felarca of her administrative leave says the leave “[was] not intended to be disciplinary.”

In October 2016, Felarca filed a lawsuit against BUSD (Yvette Felarca v. Berkeley Unified School District et al.) alleging the district violated her First Amendment rights by placing her on involuntary leave for her participation in a political protest. The case claimed in its introduction that Felarca “has received only positive evaluations over her ten years of teaching with BUSD” and said the defendants were conducting “a political witch-hunt against [Felarca].”

Felarca, a member of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, returned to the classroom in November, at which time she was presented with a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct.” Felarca submitted as evidence the November letter and a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct/Unsatisfactory Performance” from June 2016 as exhibits I and A, respectively, revealed during the case proceedings.

“Exhibit A” states Felarca “repeatedly solicited students to participate in protests against the proposed charter school in the District” and was issued a formal reprimand for her “improper involvement of children in this matter.” In 2011, the notice says, Felarca promised parents and students a trip to a rally at UC-Berkeley before obtaining permission from the principal to take them. The principal ultimately denied Felarca permission, because “it was an opportunity for [Felarca] to indoctrinate students and use them to support [her] own political agenda.” Felarca acted “unprofessionally toward [the principal] when she denied [her] permission.”

Felarca was issued another formal letter of reprimand in June 2012 for an unauthorized after-school trip where she left a student behind and later claimed he “wandered off,” according to the notice, which goes on to document numerous instances of “abuse of leave” over the years, during which time Felarca lied about sick and personal leave to attend political rallies.  TheBlaze

Bowe Bergdahl To Plead Guilty To Desertion, Misbehavior Before The Enemy

Traitor.

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is set to plead guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, The Associated Press reported Friday.

Bergdahl is accused of deserting his station in Afghanistan in 2009. He was held captive by armed Taliban militants until his release in 2014.

President Trump has slammed Bergdahl as a “no-good traitor,” saying he “should have been executed.”..

The desertion charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and the misbehavior charge carries a possible life sentence.

A guilty plea carries the possibility of a lighter sentence for Bergdahl, though it is not yet clear how much time he will face.

Sentencing is set to begin Oct. 23, according to the AP. It is not clear whether prosecutors and the defense have reached an agreement on the sentence prosecutors will request.  TheHill

 

Secret Donors To An Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Group Revealed

The hidden left-wing foundations and millionaire donors to a Washington, D.C. based left-wing agitation group were revealed in a Washington Free Beacon report.

The Center for Community Change Action, a Washington, D.C.-based progressive community organizing group that does not reveal its donors, has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections. The organization’s members sit on the boards of other prominent liberal activist groups.

The Free Beacon has obtained the group’s unredacted 2015 tax forms that shed light on its funders, who provide millions of dollars in assistance. The group appears to rely heavily on a few major liberal foundations, organizations, and unions.  Washington Free Beacon

Some of the Center for Community Change Action donors:

  • $3,000,000 – W.K. Kellogg Foundation
  • $2,350,000 – The Ford Foundation
  • $1,475,000 – Soros group named the Open Society Policy Center
  • $1,750,000 – Hillary Clinton affiliated Every Citizen Counts
  • $515,000 – Marquerite Casey Foundation
  • $505,100 –  Fidelity Charitable Gift
  • $316,000 –  National Immigration Law Center
  • $150,000 – Services Employees International Union  SEIU
  • $150,000 – Center for Community Change
  • $50,000 – Tides Foundation

In yet another connection to anti-American George Soros, the executive director of the Center for Community Change, Deepak Bhargava, sits on the advisory board of Soros’s Open Society Foundation.

Another notable connection to anti-American efforts comes in the form of Charlene Sinclair, the director of reinvestment at the Center for Community Change. Sinclair also sits on the board of a group called The Emergent Fund that has donated tens of thousands to the violent Black Lives Matter movement. BreitBart

The ‘Ferguson Effect’ Is Real

The Ferguson effect was spotlighted by Manhattan Institute’s Heather MacDonald in a Wall Street Journal May 2015 op-ed.  MacDonald noted that arrests were sharply down in cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore because an “onslaught of anti-cop rhetoric” across the country caused officers to “scale back on proactive policing.”

At first glance, the number seems like an error — as if an FBI statistician had accidentally transposed some digits in the bureau’s annual report on crime released earlier this week.

Were there really 765 murders in Chicago in 2016? A year after the city tallied 478, and the year before that 411? A reader unfamiliar with Chicago’s recent crime history would likely say the true number has to be 576 or, worst case, 675.

Alas, anyone who has been paying attention to violence in Chicago knows the FBI didn’t make a mistake — the shocking number is accurate. Chicago’s annual murder total jumped 86 percent in the space of two years, evoking memories of the early 1990s crack wars when annual homicide totals regularly approached 1,000…

Although that horrifying statistic stands out, Chicago’s wave of killing wasn’t an aberration, nationally speaking. Six other major U.S. cities experienced a surge in murders in at least one year between 2014 and 2016.

Baltimore, for example, recorded 211 murders in 2014, a relatively peaceful year for the violence-plagued city. The next year, homicides exploded by more than 60 percent to 344.

Chicago and Baltimore have something in common beyond seemingly intractable gang violence. Along with several other cities — St. Louis, Dallas, Charlotte, and Milwaukee — they were the site of significant civil unrest that erupted following the killing of black men by police officers.

Las Vegas Shooting Survivor Says He’s No Longer Agnostic – ‘I’m a Firm Believer in God Now’

Many reports of heroism and brave first responders have flooded the internet.

Las Vegas survivor Taylor Benge tells of heroic acts on Sunday, he also revealed that the experience turned him from being an agnostic to a full-fledged believer.

“I was agnostic going into that concert and I’m a firm believer in God now,” Benge told CNN on Monday morning. “Because there’s no way that all of that happened and that I made it and I was blessed enough to still be here alive talking to you today.”

Taylor has a brave protective sister.

“My sister and I, we started running to the left and every time they shot, we took cover,” Taylor Benge told CNN on Monday morning. “My sister, being as noble as she, she actually threw herself on top of me and was saying, ‘I love you Taylor, I love you.’ And I’ll never forget that.” Faithwire

Watch his “God” comments at the 1:35-mark below:

The Las Vegas Shooting

Update:

Stephen Craig Paddock is the son of Benjamin Hoskins Paddock (A man once on the FBI’s Most Wanted List)

The father of the gunman behind the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history robbed a string of banks in Arizona, escaped prison in Texas and tried to start a new life as the manager of a bingo parlor in Oregon, according to historical newspaper articles.

Eric, the brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 50 people from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino late Sunday, told the Orlando Sentinel that their father was Benjamin Hoskins Paddock.

The elder Paddock, born in Wisconsin in 1926, had a host of other fake names and nicknames, including “Big Daddy” and “Old Baldy,” and was on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list from 1969 to 1977.

Paddock was indicted in 1960 on three counts of robbing Phoenix branches of Valley National Bank, the Arizona Republic reported on Oct. 6 that year. He was accused of stealing close to $25,000 and was caught in the summer of 1960 by FBI agents after returning to Arizona from Las Vegas.

The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Paddock was convicted and slapped with a 20-year prison sentence, but the lengthy jail term was cut short when he busted out of a federal prison in Texas in 1969, the Eugene Register-Guard reported.

An escaped federal prisoner poster issued by the FBI at the time said Paddock was “diagnosed as psychopathic” and “reportedly has suicidal tendencies and should be considered armed and dangerous.” FoxNews

This is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.  At least 58 people are dead and an estimated 515 others have been injured from the Sunday night massacre in Las Vegas.  One police officer was killed and another remains in critical condition.

Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, has been identified as the gunman.   He was found dead by police officers in a hotel room on the 32nd floor;  he reportedly took his own life.

Why?   We will hear and find out more about Paddock over the next few days and weeks.

“There is no reason we can imagine why Stephen would do something like this,” his brother said. “All we can do is send our condolences to the people who died. Just no reason, no warning.”

The younger Paddock repeatedly described his brother as “just a guy” with no serious health or money problems.

“As far as we knew, he had enough money to live the rest of his life in comfort,” he said.

100-Year-Old Woman Helping People With the Gift ‘The Lord Gave Me’

Wonderful.

Most mornings 100-year-old Eva wakes up between 3-4 and heads for her sewing machine. She’s a woman on a mission with no time to waste.

At the end of last year, Eva’s pastor asked her to make about 180 items for girls that could be packed in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Eva didn’t have to think long before she knew what she’d do.

Eva is making dresses that will soon be packed in shoeboxes and distributed to little girls across the world who need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“At first it took me a day and a half to make a dress. Now, I can get three done in a day,” said Eva, a resident of the North Carolina mountains.

Eva works hard but said she doesn’t mind—she’s grateful.

“I love it. The Lord gave me hands with no arthritis. I’m doing what the Lord has asked me to do.” SamaritanPurse

DOJ Files Suit Against Company For Discriminating Against American Workers

Good first step.   There will probably be a settlement by the company to avoid an extended legal process.  This will act as a deterrent to other companies who are abusing the visa program and not hiring Americans.

The H-2A visa program is a temporary agricultural program that allows employers to hire workers from other countries on temporary work permits.  The employer must first show that they have tried and are unable to find U.S. workers.

Next, the DoJ should look at and sue companies (Disney) that replaced American workers with foreign workers on H-1B visas.  Not only were the American workers replaced by foreign workers but they had to train their foreign replacements.

The Department of Justice announced Thursday it has filed a lawsuit against a Colorado corporation for allegedly discriminating against U.S. workers.

The complaint alleges that in 2016, Crop Production discriminated against at least three United States citizens by refusing to employ them as seasonal technicians in El Campo, Texas, because Crop Production preferred to hire temporary foreign workers under the H-2A visa program.

“In the spirit of President Trump’s Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American, the Department of Justice will not tolerate employers who discriminate against U.S. workers because of a desire to hire temporary foreign visa holders,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “… Where there is a job available, U.S. workers should have a chance at it before we bring in workers from abroad.”

This is the first complaint filed stemming from the “Protecting U.S. Workers Initiative,” which was launched on March 1.

A Civil Rights Division official told Fox News that since the initiative’s launch, the division has opened 29 investigations of “potential discrimination against U.S. workers based on a hiring preference for foreign visa workers.”

DOJ officials also told Fox News the department has reached at least one settlement with a company discriminating against U.S. workers in favor of foreign visa workers, and distributed over $100,000. FoxNews

Cost Of Illegal Immigration – $135 Billion A Year

The cost of illegal immigration is huge and will only increase.   Spend the money on a wall.

The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the most authoritative report on the issue yet.

And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.

State and local governments are getting ravaged by the costs, at over $88 billion. The federal government, by comparison, is getting off easy at $45 billion in costs for illegals.

President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and conservatives in Congress are moving aggressively to deal with illegals, especially those with long criminal records. But their effort is being fought by courts and some 300 so-called “sanctuary communities” that refuse to work with federal law enforcement. WashingtonExaminer

Key findings pulled from the report:

  • The staggering total costs of illegal immigrants and their children outweigh the taxes paid to federal and state governments by a ratio of roughly 7 to 1, with costs at nearly $135 billion compared to tax revenues at nearly $19 billion.
  • The nearly $135 billion paid out by federal and state and local taxpayers to cover the cost of the presence of 12.5 million illegal aliens and their 4.2 million citizen children amounts to approximately $8,075 per illegal alien and citizen child prior to taxes paid, or $6,940 per person after taxes are paid.
  • On the federal level, medical ($17.14 billion) is by far the highest cost, with law enforcement coming second ($13.15 billion) and general government services ($8 billion) third.
  • At the state and local level, education ($44.4 billion) was by far the largest expense, followed by general public services ($18.5 billion) and medical ($12.1 billion).
  • The top three states based on total cost to state taxpayers for illegal immigrants and their children: California ($23 billion); Texas ($10.9 billion), and New York ($7.5 billion).  WashingtonExaminer

Florida Fifth-Grade ‘Gender Neutral’ Teacher Reassigned To Adult Education

Chloe Bressack, the fifth-grade math and science teacher that seems to deny biology and not understand English grammar rules has been transferred to Adult education.

Basic rules of English grammar dictate that singular nouns take singular pronouns and plural nouns take plural pronouns.

So when a fifth-grade teacher requested that students address her with nongendered pronouns such as “they” and “them,” it stirred consternation among parents (if not education officials) in the state’s capital city — and abroad.

Chloe Bressack, a 23-year-old math and science teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary School in Tallahassee, recently sent a letter to parents that has gone viral on social media and made international headlines.

“One thing you should know about me is that I use gender neutral terms,” Ms. Bressack said in the single-page letter. “My prefix is Mx. (pronounced Mix). Additionally, my pronouns are ‘they, them, their’ instead of ‘he, his, she, hers.’ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural, but in my experience, students catch on pretty quickly.”

Parents, however, didn’t catch on as quickly and complained to the school’s and the school district’s administrators, who expressed support for the young teacher.

Still, Ms. Bressack issued another statement apologizing for any confusion her first letter may have caused.

“My practice in addressing my students is to refer to them by their personal pronouns, be they ‘he, she, or they.’ We work together to create a positive environment of respect and understanding,” the teacher wrote. “I understand that students will not always address me in the way I prefer, and that is okay. We keep moving with a smile and continue on with our learning. In our classroom, our learning and our well-being is the priority. I am lucky to be teaching at Canopy Oaks and I look forward to working with my students this year.”

Her grammar lesson exploded across social networks and attracted the bemused attention of Britain’s Daily Mail and Switzerland’s Ticinonews.

On Tuesday, the Leon County School District announced that Ms. Bressack would be transferred to an adult basic education program effective immediately.

“Given the complexity of this issue, we both agreed a different environment would be best for Teacher Bressack’s educational career and for the young students at Canopy Oaks,” Superintendent Rocky Hanna said in a statement. WashingtonTimes

Denver Broncos Back Down – Players Pledge To Stand For The National Anthem

The Denver Broncos players released a statement Thursday that they will no longer be kneeling for the national anthem.

Did they figure out this disrespectful counterproductive spectacle was a slap in the face to Americans?

It is likely that blowback to the NFL – and specifically to the Broncos – had some impact on the players decision to stop kneeling.   Which is fine.

Last Sunday about half the Broncos players kneeled during the anthem. Von Miller and Demaryius Thomas were among them. Tight end Virgil Green had a fist raised. NFL.com

Broncos Statement:

“Last week, members of our team joined their brothers around the NFL in a powerful display of unity,” the players’ statement said.

“It was an emotional time for everyone, including the fans who support us each and every week. As controversial as it appeared, we needed to show our collective strength and resolve.

“Our voices needed to be heard loud and clear.”

“Make no mistake — our actions were in no way a protest of the military, the flag or those who keep us safe. We have nothing but the deepest love and respect for those who protect our way of life and the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

“While there’s no greater country, it’s not perfect. Inequalities still exist, and we have work to do in ALL forms of social justice. We can all do better.

“It starts with us. We need to do our part and use our platform as NFL players to continue driving that positive change.

“Our locker room is one diverse place, and that’s what makes it so special. It’s where thoughtful, intelligent leaders from all different races, religions, and backgrounds come together.

“We may have different values and beliefs, but there’s one thing we all agree on: We’re a team and we stand together — no matter how divisive some comments and issues can be, nothing should ever get in the way of that.

“Starting Sunday, we’ll be standing together.”
