Associated Press, NYT Torpedo Democratic Narrative On Government Shutdown

House Democrats Oppose Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

The House of Representatives has just voted to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, by a vote of 241-183. Every Republican representative voted in favor of the bill, and all Democrats voted against it, with just six exceptions: Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania, Henry Cuellar of Texas, Jim Langevin of Rhode Island, Dan Lipinski of Illinois, and Collin Peterson and Tim Walz, both of Minnesota.

The last time a similar bill was considered in Congress — the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which President George W. Bush signed in 2002 — it passed both chambers by a voice vote. The fact that nearly every House Democrat voted against a similar bill this year (and one that contains actual enforcement mechanisms to protect these children, rather than simply define them legally as “persons”) shows how radically pro-abortion their party has become over the last 15 years....

Trump’s first year in office was the year of the woman

...Naturally, Vogue has written about it. Cosmopolitan has shouted it from the rooftops, as has MSNBC and every other liberal news outlet.

If only that last part were true.

Despite impressive hiring practices during his first year in the White House, President Donald Trump has received little to no credit for his choice of women for the most senior positions on his cabinet, as well as the West Wing....

One of the greatest successes of Trump’s first year in office has been the empowerment of women. Certainly, there have been plenty of other successes in the first year of the Trump administration — a record stock market surpassing 25,000, unemployment at a 17-year low, illegal border crossings lowered by 76 percent, a unanimous United Nations resolution against a nuclear North Korea, and more than 1 million bonuses given to American workers in just the last three weeks thanks to Trump’s leadership on tax reform. However, to write about those accomplishments without mentioning the women who helped make it happen is to miss part of the story.

So, why have the mainstream media given him no credit? Why haven’t the glossy magazines – who pride themselves on empowering women in the workplace — given him credit where credit is due? If Hillary Clinton were president, they would be touting her accomplishments.

The answer is because Trump is a republican....

It will look very different than it did under the previous administration...the Obama Administration weaponized the shutdown in 2013... they chose to make it worse."

The House voted to keep the government running and provide children’s health insurance. Ball’s in your court, Senate Democrats. Do the right thing.

Worse Than Watergate.

Environmental group may have to register as foreign agents

...While the media remains largely focused on ongoing investigations into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, the connection between Vladimir Putin’s government and U.S. environmental groups deserves more scrutiny.

Klein Ltd., a Bermuda-based shell corporation run by executives with strong ties to longtime Putin friend Leonid Reiman and Russian energy investment groups including Firebird New Russia Fund and Vimpelcom Ltd., reportedly funneled $23 million to the Sea Change Foundation, according to a detailed 2014 U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee report.

Klein’s legal counsel dismisses such charges as “completely false and irresponsible.” But in a letter addressed to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, members of Congress document evidence pointing to a paperless money trail that flows from Russia into U.S. environmental groups through the Sea Change Foundation. The implication is that the Russians have been pouring tens of millions of dollars into willing environmental advocacy groups in an effort to spread propaganda directed against fracking in the U.S. and the technology that makes it possible, according to evidence presented in the letter....

Capitol Update: Thursday, January 18, 2018

Bills, Bills, Bills

The second year of this legislative session is well under way, and there are many bills we are already tracking. And although many new bills are being introduced, there are lots of bills left over from last year, or, "2-year" bills, that have deadlines to overcome quickly or else their fate is sealed. Last Friday was the deadline for 2-year fiscal bills to move out of their first house policy committees and onto their fiscal committees. 282 bills missed this crucial deadline and are now dead. Tomorrow is the deadline for these same 2-year bills to be moved from out of committee and back to their floor of origin, or else they suffer a similar fate. Then, there are the bills that have survived thus far, and we are tracking their progress. Here are some important bills for our members to be aware of:

AB 403 (Melendez, R): Legislative Whistleblower Protection Act- To her credit, Assemblywoman Melendez has been trying to pass this bill since 2012. Now that sexual harrassment and assualt claims are running wild in the Capitol- with two Democrat Assemblymen resigning, a Democrat Senator on leave and another Democrat Senator with several credible accusations in the wings, it is no surprise that the Democrat legislative majority has killed this bill every session since it's inception. But Assemblywoman Melendez persists. Legislative staffers deserve the same whistleblower protections as every other state government employee, and yet, the culture of corruption in Sacramento protects those in power in the Legislature. It is high time that those who abuse their power answer for their sins.

AB 1745 (Ting, D): Assemblyman Ting wants to ban all gas-powered, internal combustion vehicle by 2040. That's right... Assemblyman Ting wants to ban YOUR CAR. The havoc this would cause on our economy alone is enough to kill it. This is so short-sided and a huge government overreach.

AB 1756 (Brough, R): Do you hate the gas tax as much as we do? Assemblyman Brough is trying to repeal SB 1 through legislative channels, while efforts to repeal SB 1 through the ballot box continue as well. Though we don't expect this bill to make it through, it is important to support. Poll after poll have made it clear that Californians do not support the Gas Tax.

AB 1886 (Fong, R): Speaking of the Gas Tax, did you know it was unnecessary? Assemblyman Fong introduced legislation last session that would have fully funded transportation infrastructure repairs and new roads without raising Californians' taxes. That bill failed, but he is trying again, especially in the wake of how unpopular SB 1 truly is. AB 1886 would allocate $5.6 billion in transportation funding for new roads, repairs, and traffic congestion without raising our taxes! The revenue is already there, the funding already exists. Democrats would rather raise our taxes and fees than use our transportation funding mechanism for just that- transportation funds.

SB 827 (Wiener, D): California has a housing crisis, and there have been many ideas and suggestions as to how to fix it. Assemblyman Wiener is from the San Fransisco Bay Area, and his bill would allow for higher, denser, transportation village housing. SB 827 would allow housing buildings near public transportation to be taller, denser, and allow for more dwellings. Sounds like quality living!

SB 834 (Jackson, D)/AB 1775 (Mullin, D): These two bills essentially do the same thing, but they are working different avenues. Both are an affront to President Trump's energy plan, and they seek to stonewall any oil drilling off our coasts. Both bills ban new construction on pipelines, piers, or wharfs in any state coastal waters. This would effectively halt the President's efforts to drill off our coasts.

High Speed Fail

The California High Speed Rail Authority appointed a new CEO this week. Brian Kelly was named CEO and was formerly secretary of the California Transportation Agency, overseeing much of the High Speed Rail development. Revolving door, much? The costs of the High Speed Rail Bond have already doubled since voters approved the measure in 2008, from the original projected $34 billion by 2020 to $67 billion by 2029. The latest quagmire is the 119 miles of track in the Central Valley that will cost over $10 billion, up from the original $6 bllion. Questions of if the state can complete the doomed project now outweigh the support it once received. What once was "when" is now "if". According to the PPIC, more than half of likely voters oppose High Speed Rail. Click HERE to read more.

Primary Ballot Measures

The June Primary Election is closer than we realize! The CFRW will come out with Official Positions on each of the four Primary Ballot Measures. Remember that these measures were put on the ballot by the legislature and that citizen-driven initiatives are only allowed on the General Election ballot. The state legislature referred 3 constitutional amendments to the primary election ballot. Two of them were part of a previous session legislative package. For now, here is a brief description of each measure.

ACA 1 (Mayes, R): Vote Requirement to Use Cap And Trade Revenue Amendment- requires a one time, 2/3rds vote to use revenue from our state's Cap and Trade program in 2024. ACA 1 was part of a legislative deal on the Cap and Trade extension at the end of last legislatve session. It requires the legislative vote threshold to pass a spending plan for the revenue from our state's Cap and Trade program.

ACA 5 (Frazier, D): Transportation and Fees "Lockbox" Amendment- requires that SB 1 (the Gas Tax) taxes and fees revenue be used for transportation purposes only. It also exempts the revenue from SB 1 from the state appropriations limit, or the Gann Limit. This prohibits the state from spending revenue in excess of per-person government spending in 1978-79 (adjusted for inflation and cost of living).

SB 5 (DeLeon, D): The California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act- What a mouthful, right? This issues a $4 billion general obligation bond for parks, environmental protection and water infrastructure. In the weeks to come, we will list the entire allocation of the $4 billion dollars, but for now, know that many, many different grants and water authorities will come into tens of millions of dollars of your money if this passes. From 1993 to present day, the state of California has had 39 bonds on our state election ballots. Of those, the voters have passed 31. Of those bonds, only 6 have been citizen driven. The state currently has $73.33 billion outstanding in general obligation bond debt.

ACA 17 (Mullin, D): Effective Date of Balot Measures Amendment- Currently, our state ballot measures come into effect the day after the election, unless otherwise noted in the measure itself. This measure would make it so when the voters approve a ballot measure, it would take effect five days after the Secretary of State certifies the election. The Secretary of State is required to certify elections no later than 38 days after the election. The rationale for this measure is to account for the increasing vote by mail ballots needed to be counted after the election date.

"Look out for this radical environmental group posing as conservatives"

Cohen added: “There is nothing 'conservative' about the Ohio Conservative Energy Forum, which appears to be little more than a front group for purveyors of wind and solar power, who will stop at nothing to keep their industry from having to stand on its own two feet. And that includes presenting themselves as conservative when, in fact, they are garden-variety hustlers looking for a handout.”

Follow the money standing behind the network that includes the Ohio group and it is evident Cohen is spot-on when he says these self-described conservatives are operating as a “front group” for environmental activists.

MUST READ: President Nobama

...The wonder was never how to grow the economy at 3 percent (all presidents prior to 2009 had at one time or another done just that), but rather, contrary to “expert” economic opinion, how to discover ways to prevent that organic occurrence.

Obama was the first modern president who apparently figured out how. It took the efforts of a 24/7 redistributionist agenda of tax increases, federalizing health care, massive new debt, layers of more regulation, zero-interest rates, neo-socialist regulatory appointments, expansionary eligibility for entitlements, and constant anti-free-market jawboning that created a psychological atmosphere conducive to real retrenchment, mental holding patterns, and legitimate fears over discernable success. Obama weaponized federal agencies including the IRS, DOJ, and EPA in such a manner as to worry anyone successful, prominent, and conservative enough to come under the federal radar of a vindictive Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, or a FISA court.

Trump has sought to undo all that, point by point. The initial result so far is not rocket science, but rather a natural expression of what happens when millions of Americans believe they have greater freedom and safety to profit and innovate, and trust they will not be punished, materially or psychologically, for the ensuing successful results....

The Southern Poverty Law Center claims it protects us from "hate groups". But it's a scam... a money grabbing slander machine

According to the population formula used by Congress to distribute House seats every 10 years, California is currently on the bubble in 2020, on the verge of losing a seat for the first time in its history.

...Fear is rising among Democrats over the prospect that President Donald Trump’s hard line on immigration might ultimately cost California a seat in Congress during the upcoming round of reapportionment.

Top Democrats here are increasingly worried the administration’s restrictive policies — and the potential inclusion of a question about citizenship on the next U.S. census — could scare whole swaths of California’s large immigrant population away from participating in the decennial count, resulting in an undercount that could cost the state billions of dollars in federal funding over the next decade and, perhaps, the loss of one of its 53 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives....

What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right

...Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment."

In plain English: s--- is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water. Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country. Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral. The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see....
