Shock Poll: 59 Percent Of Californians Want Increased Deportations of Illegals

A poll released by UC Berkeley’s Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, a left-wing organization, found some shocking results in the far-left state of California, including a desire from a clear majority of 59 percent to “increase deportations” of illegal immigrants. California, which advertises itself as a progressive sanctuary state for illegal aliens, has been on the front-lines fighting against President Donald Trump’s push to finally enforce America’s immigration laws. From all of the reporting coming from our disgraced media, you would be led to believe that not only is all of California opposed to enforcing immigration law, but a majority of the American people. Hidden in this survey, however, is a truth our media never tells, as well as a number of other interesting finds. While 59 percent of Californians believe it is very (24 percent) or somewhat (35 percent) important to increase deportations of illegals, in the bluer than blue Bay Area, that number holds at 60 percent. If you are dumb enough to believe the American media, here are some other findings you will consider counter-intuitive: A full 49 percent of Californians support Trump’s ban on refugees from failed countries (only 51 percent oppose). Even in the Bay Area, 44 percent support Trump’s ban. Only 54 percent of oh-so lefty, tolerant Californians have a positive view of Muslims. A full 88 percent say that speaking English is important. On the issue of assimilation, a huge majority of Californians (73 percent) — including 69 percent of Latinos and 67 percent of blacks — believe that it is “either somewhat or very important to blend into the larger society.” A majority of 58 percent believe “raising taxes on corporations would either hurt the California economy or make no difference.” Only 42 percent believe raising taxes on corporations would “help the California economy.” As far as the government fixing “income inequality,” a clear majority of 54 percent say that “the government should play a minor role or no role at all,” while only 46 percent want the government to play a “major” role. As California’s breathtaking homeless, inequality, and illegal immigration failures reach a point to where even a sympathetic news media can no longer cover them up, the public appears to be waking up. There also appears to be a backlash brewing against Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) and his rubber stamps in the Democrat-infested state legislature — at least when it comes to allowing countless numbers of illegals to pour in. California’s elite do not ever have to face the effects of unfettered illegal immigration, what it does to lower working class wages, steal jobs, undermine public education, the gangs, the crime… The everyday people do, though, and resentment is simmering. Don’t misunderstand me, the California population-at-large is still left-wing on a number of other issues in this poll, but the numbers above are what you would expect from a state that Trump won, not one that he lost by a whopping 29 points. In fact, because of the way our news media attempts to shape rather than report on reality, 59 percent wanting increased deportations would be a surprising find in any state, which brings me to my closing point… If these numbers look like this in The People’s Republic of California, imagine the support Trump enjoys on these issues in the other 49 states.

Indeed..  And, well said, John.  John Nolte is responsible for that surprising report.

California college hosts no-whites-allowed pool party

A private college in California will be hosting a pool party later today at which white people will be excluded, with only “people who identify as POC” permitted to attend. “POC” stands for “person of color.” The event will take place at Scripps College’s Sallie Tiernan Field House pool, according to The Claremont Independent. A Facebook announcement of the event lists the party as being hosted by Café Con Leche, a student group identified in the post as “the badass Latinx at Scripps.” “Bring your chanclas and the homies over to our nice ass resort pool, LET’S TAKE UP SPACE,” the announcement reads, advertising the event as “a safe space for…students that identify as POC to come together and build community.” “Enjoy some yummy snacks, tunes that slappp, and the company of other POC,” the listing reads. The announcement also advises attendees to anticipate “an anonymous Google form to notify us of people we should keep out <for the safety and comfort of all>!” An anonymous student told The Independent that the party is meant to “promote inclusivity and congeniality between ethnic minorities.” “Most POCs at any of the Claremont Colleges (which are historically PWIs (Predominantly White Institutions)) interact and enjoy interacting with people of all races (obviously including white people), but sometimes it’s nice to have a time to be with people who identify in the same or similar way that you do,” the student said.

Wow…   Just fathom if there had been a pool party for whites only.  This story would be EVERYWHERE in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.   But, only the College Fix carried this one..  Typical, brazen hypocrisy by the liberal media…

Arnold Schwarzenegger Promotes Gas Guzzling Helicopter Ride over L.A. While Suing Oil Companies for ‘Murder’

Actor and environmental activist Arnold Schwarzenegger is gassing up the chopper for a gas-burning helicopter joy ride for some lucky contestant, even after he said that he would sue oil companies for killing people with fossil fuels. “I don’t think there’s any difference: If you walk into a room and you know you’re going to kill someone, it’s first-degree murder; I think it’s the same thing with the oil companies,” Schwarzenegger said, announcing his upcoming lawsuit at the South By Southwest tech conference. “Every gas station on it, every car should have a warning label on it, every product that has fossil fuels should have a warning label on it.” But that will not stop the former California governor from burning off gallons of fuel in a helicopter for charity. Schwarzenegger is offering a “helicopter ride over Los Angeles” as part of a fundraiser, from LA-based non-profit After-School All-Stars, which includes lunch and cigars with the Terminator star turned activist. LAST CHANCE to get to the choppa! Join me for a helicopter ride, lunch at my favorite spot and I’ll even give you a little life advice,” Schwarzenegger wrote on Facebook, adding that “Flights and hotel are on me, so enter NOW!” “Join Arnold for lunch and cigars, where you can pick his brain about his ridiculously awesome journey from Mr. Olympia to movie star to Governor of California and beyond,” reads the After-School All-Stars sweepstakes page. “And after you feel sufficiently motivated to be your best self, you’ll really start soaring. Because you’ll join Arnold for a helicopter ride over Los Angeles! If you don’t have him say, ‘Get to the choppa,’ then that’s a real missed opportunity. Flights and hotel included.” Again, just a week ago, the Hollywood star said, “[I]t’s absolutely irresponsible to know that your product is killing people and not have a warning label on it, like tobacco.”

This is such brazen hypocrisy.  Someone oughtta ask Arnold if he’s traded in his Hummer for a Prius.  Typical HollyWEIRD self-righteous, sanctimonious, liberal elite hypocrisy.  Unreal..

Oakland coffee shop’s refusal to serve police officers stirs uproar

An Oakland coffee shop has been flooded with scalding online reviews after refusing to serve uniformed police officers, citing “the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.” Hasta Muerte Coffee has received hundreds of one-star reviews on Yelp in the wake of local media reports about the shop’s no-cops-allowed policy, which remains in place despite efforts by Oakland officers to resolve the issue. The Oakland Police Officers Association reached out to Hasta Muerte after Oakland Sgt. Robert Trevino was refused service Feb. 16 at the self-described “POC [people of color], worker-owned coffee shop & radical bookstore.” “Obviously, this is both a surprise and a matter of concern for all Oakland Police Officers,” said Sgt. Barry Donelan in the open letter. “Oakland Police Officers work tirelessly every day to serve the residents of our City. I have never heard of Police Officers being refused service by an Oakland business.” A few days later, Hasta Muerte doubled down with an Instagram post blasting “police brutality” and complaining about “cop supporters are trying to publicly shame us online with low reviews because this particular police visitor was Latino.” “The facts are that poc, women, and queer police are complicit in upholding the same law and order that routinely criminalizes and terrorizes black and brown and poor folks, especially youth, trans, and houseless folks,” said the Feb. 22 post by Hasta Muerte, Spanish for “until death.” The no-cops stance has triggered debate over how the shop can refuse officers but Christian bakers and florists are banned from denying service to gay weddings, as well as questions about what the owners plan to do if the shop is robbed or otherwise victimized by crime. Oakland Sgt. Bryan Hubbard, vice president of the police union, said the anti-police policy would have no impact on the department’s response to calls from coffee shop, which opened a few months ago after raising $35,000 on KickStarter. “I think their position is very clear that they don’t want the police in there, and I can respect that,” said Sgt. Hubbard, who also runs the department’s training academies, told SFGate. “If they do call the police for any need, we’re going to respond professionally and give them the same level of service as anyone else regardless of their position.” Even so, Hasta Muerte has issued a call to members of the community to protect it from crime. “For these reasons and so many more, we need the support of the actual community to keep this place safe, not police,” said the post. “Especially in an area faced by drug sales and abuse, homelessness, and toxic masculinity as we see here on this block.” The flap comes with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf under fire from the Trump administration for alerting illegal immigrants to federal raids.

Glad to see this coffee shop getting such poor reviews online..  Hopefully it and these self-righteous ingrates who run it will find themselves out of business.  Til then, the Oakland PD should ignore any 911 calls from that sorry excuse for a coffee shop.  After all, they don’t want cops there.  So, the Oakland PD should respect that 100%.  Unreal…

California Democratic Party doesn’t endorse Feinstein re-election bid

The California Democratic Party will not endorse Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s re-election bid this year, with delegates at the party’s annual convention giving the majority of votes to her top primary challenger, progressive State Sen. Kevin de Leon. De Leon got 54 percent of the vote, compared to 37 percent for the more moderate Feinstein, according to results released Sunday. But neither Democrat will receive the state party endorsement because they failed to reach the 60 percent threshold. The vote totals were not a surprise, considering the state party’s liberal leaning. And Feinstein leads de Leon by 29 percentage points in the primary race, according to the most recent RealClearPolitics polls average. “The outcome of today’s endorsement vote is an astounding rejection of politics as usual, and it boosts our campaign’s momentum as we all stand shoulder-to-shoulder against a complacent status quo,” said de Leon, according to Politico. “California Democrats are hungry for new leadership that will fight for California values from the front lines, not equivocate on the sidelines.” Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate at 84, is seeking a sixth term. Feinstein took heat last fall from some on the left after appearing to voice optimism about Trump becoming “a good president.” Feinstein also recently said that former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which Trump is ending, was on shaky legal ground. DACA provides a level of amnesty to certain illegal immigrants — many of whom came to the U.S. as children. Still, Feinstein will be difficult to beat, considering her establishment support and standing among independents and women, two key voting blocs. “It will be tough to outflank her in that capacity,” Ben Tulchin, a San Francisco-based pollster, recently said.

Agreed..  That’s why this really isn’t much of a story.  But, what makes it interesting is that the state party no longer endorses Sen. Feinstein (D-CA), who is now 84, and will be at least 85 when she starts her next term in the Senate.  That alone should make ANY California voter think twice before just blindly voting for her, just because she’s a Democrat, the general election…should she win in her primary.  Hopefully, the California Republican party will find a quality candidate who might, just might, be able to mount a credible threat to Dianne’s Senate seat.

Judge rules California can’t force Christian baker to make same-sex wedding cakes

A California judge refused this week to order a baker to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, ruling that to do otherwise would be to trample on the baker’s free speech rights. Superior Court Judge David R. Lampe said in his Monday ruling that wedding cakes run to the core of the First Amendment. “It is an artistic expression by the person making it that is to be used traditionally as a centerpiece in the celebration of a marriage. There could not be a greater form of expressive conduct,” the judge wrote. His decision contrasts with a ruling out of Colorado, where a court ruled that a baker could not refuse to bake for a same-sex couple, arguing the state’s public accommodation law trumped that baker’s First Amendment claims. That case is now before the U.S. Supreme Court. David Mullins and Charlie Craig filed a complaint after Colorado baker Jack Phillips told them he wouldn’t create a custom cake for a party celebrating their union in 2012, because it violated his Christian faith. After feeling rejected, the couple filed a complaint with the Civil Rights Commission. As a result of the ruling, Mr. Phillips has not been making wedding cakes at all in order to appease the court’s order and not violate his faith, which has cost him a large portion of his profits. His case is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court.

And, we hope he is successful at the Supreme Court.  Kudos to Judge Lampe in California for his excellent decision!  Freedom of speech and expression go BOTH ways, and these bakers have every right to bake what they want for whom they want (or don’t want) without some fascist governmental body (as in the case of Colorado) telling them to support activities or individuals they don’t want to.  It’s beyond ridiculous…and a clear violation of Constitution.

Illegal Alien Uber Driver Allegedly Raped Four Women in Sanctuary State California

A previously deported illegal alien Uber driver is accused of raping four women, three of whom were allegedly intoxicated when he assaulted them, prosecutors say. Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez, a 39-year-old illegal alien from Mexico living in San Luis Obispo, California, has been charged with raping and robbing four women while he was driving for the ride-sharing company Uber, according to the Daily Mail. San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow told the media that Nunez’s alleged rape victims are between the ages of 19-years-old and 22-years-old, with three of them being intoxicated from alcohol when he allegedly robbed and raped them. Dow said the illegal alien would target women leaving parties while he was on duty as an Uber driver. The illegal alien would allegedly go back to the women’s homes where he would rape them and rob them, prosecutors say. Nunez is facing 10 charges for the rape, assault and robbery accusations. In 2005, Nunez was deported from New Mexico back to his native Mexico. Between 2005 and 2017, he re-entered the U.S. illegally again. The state of California is considered a “sanctuary state,” as it prevents businesses and statewide public officials and offices from cooperating with federal immigration officials to help deport criminal illegal aliens. Instead, the state acts as a safe-haven for criminal illegal aliens.
