Is California Cracking Up?

by Victor Davis Hanson at realclearpolitics:

“Corporate profits at California-based transnational corporations such as Apple, Facebook and Google are hitting record highs.

California housing prices from La Jolla to Berkeley along the Pacific Coast can top $1,000 a square foot.

It seems as if all of China is willing to pay premium prices to get their children degreed at Caltech, Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA or USC.

Yet California — after raising its top income tax rate to 13.3 percent and receiving record revenues — is still facing a budget deficit of more than $1 billion. There is a much more foreboding state crisis of unfunded liabilities and pension obligations of nearly $1 trillion.

Soon, new gas tax hikes, on top of green mandates, might make California gas the most expensive in the nation, despite the state’s huge reserves of untapped oil.

Where does the money go, given that the state’s schools and infrastructure rank among America’s worst in national surveys?

Illegal immigration over the last 30 years, the exodus of millions of middle-class Californians, and huge wealth concentrated in the L.A. basin and Silicon Valley have turned the state into a medieval manor of knights and peasants, with ever fewer in between.

The strapped middle class continues to flee bad schools, high taxes, rampant crime and poor state services. About one-third of the nation’s welfare recipients reside in California. Approximately one-fifth of the state lives below the poverty line. More than a quarter of Californians were not born in the United States.

Many of the state’s wealthiest residents support high taxes, no-growth green policies and subsidies for the poor. They do so because they reside in apartheid neighborhoods and have the material and political wherewithal to become exempt from the consequences of their own utopian bromides…..”   Please continue reading below:

Minnesota Majority Needs Help!

“Minnesota Majority fights for ordinary Minnesotans, instead of lobbying for big corporations and special interest groups. We use our resources and capabilities to fight for what’s right in state public policy.

This year, we stopped several dangerous bills that would have undermined the integrity of our elections, such as:

  • Felon voting
  • Underage voter registration
  • Removing safeguards against voter coercion and fraud
  • Taking away the right of citizens to elect their county’s chief election officials

Unfortunately, we are critically short on funds to carry on our work.

Please help us carry on with a contribution today: DONATE

Here are some examples of our other recent accomplishments:

  • Successfully sued the governor when he tried to unionize self-employed home-based daycare providers
  • Successfully sued the secretary of state when he tried to unilaterally implement online voter registration and absentee ballot requests… That victory gave us the leverage to implement 7 new security procedures into our election system.
  • Lobbied for cutting down voter vouching and slashed that dubious practice in half.
  • Stopped numerous bad bills dead in their tracks at the Capitol.

(Learn More about Minnesota Majority’s work, here)

Last year, a slew of terrible changes to our election system were brought forward and we were able to stop them all!

Without action from Minnesota Majority’s members, here are some proposals that would likely have become law this year:

  1. Early voting – Allowing vouching to carry on for 15 straight days leading up to Election Day, with next to no opportunity for partisan or citizen oversight.
  2. Felon voting – Allowing convicted murderers, rapists and fraudsters to take a hand in governing the law-abiding before they had even finished paying back their debt to society.
  3. A one-two punch of issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens and at the same time, creating automatic voter registration for license applicants.
  4. Restricting public access to Election Data – The people whose jobs depend on election results, and who count the votes would be able to keep election records secret, and we’d just have to trust them.
  5. Voter registration for 16-year olds – Seriously. This idea had support in both parties and to top it off, if an underage person actually voted illegally, that data would have been withheld from the public, because, after all, they’re minors.

The omnibus elections bill that was ultimately enacted was a purely technical bill that made long-overdue improvements to our election statutes – changes we’ve been pushing for since 2010. It was amajor victory for election integrity and it wouldn’t have happened without the activism of our members.

Can we count on you? Your contribution of anything from $5 to $5,000 will enable us to continue doing good work for the hard-working families of Minnesota. Anything helps get us closer to our goals.

Thank you so much for helping to make a difference.

Sincerely,
Dan McGrath
president of Minnesota Majority”

MN Democrats Cook Voting Count

RAMPANT VOTER FRAUD ALLEGED IN MINNESOTA

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

“Same day registration and other liberal “reforms” have made it easy for ineligible voters to cast ballots in many states. When law-abiding citizens point out that liberal policies enable voter fraud, the left’s response is always that 1) voter fraud hardly ever happens, so 2) you must be a racist. Typically subtle liberal argumentation.

Here in Minnesota, a case is pending in our Supreme Court that challenges same day registration and various actions by our Democratic Secretary of State that have enabled illegal voting. I haven’t yet had time to evaluate the plaintiffs’ legal arguments, but the factual allegations are explosive:

A new voter fraud case before the Minnesota Supreme Court claims 1,366 ineligible felons have cast at least 1,670 fraudulent votes in recent statewide elections, possibly tipping the outcome of close contests, including the 2008 U.S. Senate race.

The lawyers representing plaintiffs in the case have done a great deal of digging, and have come up with names, dates and places–illegal votes that likely swung Minnesota elections toward Democratic candidates. The illegal votes that plaintiffs have been able to document are only a small fraction of the actual total:

Court papers demonstrate how the incomplete list of ineligible voters provided to local election officials routinely allows felons, wards of the state, immigrants [who are not citizens] and other ineligible persons to register and vote.

“The 1,366 identified felons who have been permitted to vote is believed to be only a fraction of the true total,” the 110 page court petition filed by MVA and former Rep. Kirk Stensrud states. “Cooperation from the Secretary of State would have allowed for a more complete accounting of the number of ineligible persons who have been permitted to vote.”

Minnesota’s Secretary of State, Steve Simon, has tried to frustrate investigation into illegal voting by refusing to turn over either to polling places or to the plaintiffs in the lawsuit the complete list, which the state maintains, of those who have lost their voting rights. It is hard to see any possible reason why this list should be a secret, other than the Democrats’ desire that convicted felons, who overwhelmingly vote their way, get away with voting illegally.

This fact is particularly explosive:

MVA found 941 ineligible felons who were allowed to vote in 2008 alone, exceeding the 312 vote margin separating DFL candidate Al Franken and GOP Sen. Norm Coleman after a grueling recount.

This is stunning. It was Franken’s razor-thin “victory” over incumbent Senator Norm Coleman that allowed the Democrats to ram Obamacare down the throats of the American people. If we assume that 80% of the 941 ineligible felons voted for Al Franken–a conservative assumption, as nearly all convicted felons are Democrats–then Franken’s victory is attributable to voter fraud. And the 941 ineligible votes are just a fraction of those that could have been identified if the Democratic Secretary of State had not stonewalled, refusing to turn over the full list of ineligible voters.

This is a blockbuster story. I don’t yet have an opinion on how the legal case will turn out. Plaintiffs allege that the Secretary of State’s implementation of same day registration violates the Minnesota Constitution, Minnesota statutes, and the principle of separation of powers. The Minnesota Supreme Court may or may not ultimately uphold those legal claims. But, if it is true that more than 1,600 fraudulent votes have been identified by voter name, date and poll location, the Left’s claim that voter fraud is essentially non-existent is blown sky-high. And Al Franken should be turned out of the Senate.”

Comment:   Democrats have ‘managed’ things Minnesota since 1948.   Honesty was once in partnership with things Democrat in Minnesota until our present Paul Welstone academy leftist  products concocted votes out of thin air  during Obamatime with the invention that  tv comedy  creep, honestly won his time to join the US Senate in time to secure the 60th vote to create the curse of ObamaCare.

Democrat leftists add illegal votes in Minnesota elections of national consequence.  They organize voting at rest homes around the state where citizens living or dead, senile or comatose vote for their favorite national Democrat as many times as possible….depending how devoted the lefty bus drivers leading the lame to the polls are  while  writing  in the Democrat  party’s choice   keeping the state out  of GOP count.

HotAir Complains: Cruz Got More Votes in Wisconsin, than Trump Got in New York

ALLAHPUNDIT is standard for the GOP insider folks at HotAir in his suffering from the success achieved by Donald J. Trump  thus far in the nation’s battle to unseat the fascist Marxists presently occupying the powers of the White House.

This Cruz man writes like Cruz…..lyin’ Ted Cruz Mr. Trump would exclaim….

The Republican Party in New York does not allow New York citizens to vote in the Republican  primary unless they registered months in advance.  Like the the Republican establishment, they don’t seem to be too interested in expanding their voter base.

Please read the following article so you can get a better feel how the GOP regulars manage to turn away so many potential voters toward conservatism:

Only an American Idiot Can Claim “Our Primaries are not rigged”

…….unless, of course, it depends on what one  means by the word “RIGGED”.

Democrats rig their party events…..Republicans rig theirs….Otherwise, how, why  would these ‘corporations’ exist?    Democrats prefer feminists, black racists, atheists, socialists, communists, Islamists  and other hate groups, and Republicans don’t!

I have been an on again, off again grass roots volunteer for the GOP many years of the past quarter century….enough to know some of the conservative folk who work enough to keep the local party alive, if not well.    They are good people… often women of Roman Catholic persuasion…..dependable, culturally conservative,  church goers….folks who don’t swear either at sleep or awake….quiet, private, trustworthy  suburban neighbors whose todays and tomorrows are perfect extensions of yesterdays.

And along comes Donald.    Thousands of people showed up at our grass roots GOP gathering last month…..giving   Marco Rubio  their vote…NO DISCUSSION, NO CAUCUS,  NO DEBATES, just a mob of good, peaceful, Church -driven people.   No ads, not a word ala television or newspapers….although I quit the lefty,  schmaltsy teenager-level  reading Minneapolis STrib thirty years ago.

People were herded in, given their piece of blank paper to vote…and go home….GOP the Minnesota way……all very fast and hush-hush….very representative of the states’ GOP.

Do read the following UNBELIEVABLE  article from realclearpolitics:   NO, OUR PRIMARIES ARE NOT RIGGED

Obama Sends Islamic Fascists to Settle In Willmar, Mn

Obamaland in  2016 Minnesota!

Minnesota has been a very quiet state.   A couple decades ago Washington sent thousands and thousands of Somali to nestle in not far from downtown Minneapolis.  Since then, although many males bullied there way into the taxi driving business, until recently beyond the burka decorations covering the female Somali structure, not much has happened.   Only about a score of their male offspring have been militarized by ISIS to kill traditional Americans.

Leftists in Minnesota have long desired national and international attention.   Since the goofy HHH closed in on the White House in the 1960s, and once civilized Walter Mondale toyed with Pennsylvania Avenue life, our version of the national Democrat Party has diminished geographically to focus on destroying American culture on the local front replacing it with feminist hegemony.    Enter Mark Dayton, a member of the disappeared, but  once honorable, classy  Dayton department store industry, replaced by  the jungles of Target Corporation, a drunk incompetent when Senator in Washington, and now ugly, cantankerous Governor of Gopherland  for the past…you name the years.

One wonders what the liaison between this deviant politico of our state and the one in the White House who decides all things Islamic in America these days.

For what reason can you think beyond the political, does the White House send Minnesota Governor, Mark Dayton, its Islamic terrorists from the Near East  to settle in Willmar, Minnesota?

Arlene and Bruce Taber sent the following stressful note on the matter:

“Have you been to Willmar or St Cloud recently?  Is this realy happening????
For those of you familiar with Willmar,MN  this may be of interest.
It is reported that St. Cloud schools are suffering the same malady that
Willmar is suffering.

Dan and I just finished working a show in Tucson and we met a great couple
from Willmar.  He is a teacher and she used to work for Tastefully Simple
now works for a non profit org in Willmar.  What they told us I thought was
pretty interesting and wanted to share with you.

They said that Willmar is soon going to be totally taken over by Muslims.

The Sunni /Muslims were brought in by
government  to reside in that town.  She said that in her present
job, she is responsible for giving out the incentives to the Muslims.
She pays them $1800 a month from the government for 6 months to help
them relocate. She said they come in, pound their fist on her desk and
demand their money.  They say you owe us this money. She is quitting her
job because they are so abusive to her.
He said The Muslims have purchased the old elementary school and have
turned it in to a Mosque. They also purchased an abandoned store front
right in the center of town where they have a large map of Minnesota in the
window with a large insignia representing their country superimposed on the
entire state of Minnesota.  He said it has been a total nightmare trying to
assimilate them into the schools.  They demand free breakfast and lunch.
They won’t tell you their age so you have no idea how old they are.  The
kids are very aggressive and mean and are not blending in at all with the
overall student body.  They are leery  to discipline them because they have
to deal with their attorneys etc.

They have been trying to sell their beautiful home on a lake there and
can’t because their realtor told them, all of the housing values have
dropped significantly and no one wants to buy there because of this
situation.  They said everyone that can, wants to move out of that town.
Actually they said, “running out of the town”.  He said it is a total mess.

So it goes for sleeply little Willmar.”

 

Cruz Guru at PowerLine Attacks Trump Upsetting the Elderly

Claims Trump would have disappeared if following Cruz ad had appeared months ago:

THE GLOVES COME OFF, BUT WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG?

by Paul Mirengoff  at PowerLine:

“This is the kind of information Trump’s rival candidates should have started putting out months ago when it became clear that Trump is for real. Instead, by and large they (1) indulged in the fantasy that Trump would fade away, (2) worried that Trump would fight back to their detriment, and/or (3) attacked lesser candidates (but better potential presidents) than Trump because they want to become preeminent in their “lane.”

Please read below for the earthshaking evidence that should have buried the Donald long ago:
