Trump attacks California governor over bid to limit National Guard border policy

The president took to Twitter Wednesday to claim that a “revolution” is taking place in the state with many areas wanting to break from California’s sanctuary state law which bars officials from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement. In his tweet, Trump labelled the law a “ridiculous, crime infested and breeding concept.”

San Diego County, California’s second most populous municipality, voted Tuesday to support the Trump administration and join the US Department of Justice’s legal challenge to the law.

Last month Orange County pushed back against the law and, last week, the city council of Los Alamitos, a small city in Orange County, gave final approval to exempt itself from the legislation. Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar claimed at least 13 other municipalities in the state are considering similar measures.

California was declared a sanctuary state in October last year. The legislation prohibits law enforcement officers from enforcing federal immigration laws that target people based on their race or ethnic origin.

Trump’s latest tweet comes on the back of another post Tuesday which accused Brown of failing to provide security along the border. The Democratic governor initially approved 400 National Guard troops for Trump’s deployment plan, winning short-lived praise from the president. It was later revealed that a number of conditions were attached to the plan, among them that guardsmen would not be allowed assist with monitoring surveillance cameras, performing maintenance or transporting US border agents.

The Trump administration has asked states deploy as many as 4,000 National Guard troops to assist with a crackdown on illegal crossings.The governors of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, all Republicans, have all committed to cooperating with the plan.

Kentucky governor apologizes for saying teacher strike led to sexual assaults

By Bernie Woodall

(Reuters) – Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin apologized on Sunday for saying last week that a teacher walkout that shut schools in many of the state’s districts led to children being sexually assaulted.

In an interview with a WDRB-TV television reporter on Friday, the Republican governor said he could guarantee that somewhere in Kentucky a child was sexually assaulted after being left home with no supervision because of the walkout.

In a video statement on Sunday, Bevin said: “I’m sorry for those of you, every single one of you, that has been hurt by things that I’ve said.”

Kentucky’s Republican-majority House of Representatives passed a bipartisan resolution on Saturday criticizing the governor’s comments, and the Republican state Senate president said Bevin should apologize, according to local media.

Teachers in Kentucky, as well as in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Arizona, have held recent walkouts or protests demanding more funds for education, including teachers’ salaries and pensions.

Kentucky legislators voted on Friday to override Bevin’s veto of a two-year state budget that increased education funding through a $480 million tax increase.

Bevin said on Friday that single-parent households in the state had been forced to leave children at home and in peril of not just sexual assault, but of ingesting poison or being offered drugs for the first time.

In his apology video on Sunday, Bevin appeared to defend some of the comments he had made.

“We can’t be so consumed with the financial that we fail to appreciate the ripple effect of the real people that are involved,” Bevin said on Sunday.

Wisconsin Governor: Nullifies Jeff Session’s Asset Forfeiture Rule

MADISON, Wisc. (April 2018) – Yesterday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill into law that reforms the state’s asset forfeiture laws to prohibit the state from taking property without a criminal conviction in most situations. The legislation also takes a small, but important step toward closing a [an unconstitutional] federal loophole that allows police to circumvent strict state forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the feds.

Sen. Dave Craig,  (R-Town of Vernon), along with a bipartisan coalition of 26 legislators, introduced Senate Bill 61 (SB61) last year and it carried over to the 2018 session. The legislation reforms Wisconsin law by requiring a criminal conviction before prosecutors can proceed with asset forfeiture in most situations. It will also raise the evidentiary requirement for forfeiture from a preponderance of evidence to clear and convincing evidence.

The new law requires forfeiture money to primarily go into the state Common School Fund, but allows police to keep up to 50 percent of proceeds “for administrative expenses of seizure, maintenance of custody, advertising and court costs and the costs of investigation and prosecution reasonably incurred.”

The Senate passed SB61 by a 22-10 vote. The Assembly concurred, sending the bill to the governor’s desk. With Gov. Walker’s signature, the law goes into effect April 5.

“Civil asset forfeiture reform is an important step to ensure that no person is, ‘deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law’ as guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment,” Craig told the Journal Sentinal last year when the bill was introduced.

 

Passing SB61 also takes a step toward closing a loophole that allows state and local police to get around more strict state asset forfeiture laws in a vast majority of situations. This is particularly important in light of a new policy directive issued last July by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Department of Justice (DOJ).

 

FEDERAL LOOPHOLE

A federal program known as “Equitable Sharing” allows prosecutors to bypass more stringent state asset forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the federal government through a process known as adoption.The new DOJ directive reiterates full support for the equitable sharing program, directs federal law enforcement agencies to aggressively utilize it, and sets the stage to expand it in the future.

Law enforcement agencies often bypass more strict state forfeiture laws by claiming cases are federal in nature. Under these arrangements, state officials simply hand cases over to a federal agency, participate in the case, and then receive up to 80 percent of the proceeds. However, when states merely withdraw from participation, the federal directive loses its impact.

Until recently, California faced this situation.The state has some of the strongest state-level restrictions on civil asset forfeiture in the country, but state and local police were circumventing the state process by passing cases to the feds. According to a report by the Institute for Justice, Policing for Profit, California ranked as the worst offender of all states in the country between 2000 and 2013. In other words, California law enforcement was passing off a lot of cases to the feds and collecting the loot. The state closed the loophole in 2016.

To Deceive ~ pick your starting point.

SB61 takes a step toward closing the loophole by reducing the financial incentive. It prohibits law enforcement agencies from collecting equitable funding money unless there is a federal or state criminal conviction on the crime that was the basis for the seizure. Police also have to produce an itemized report on every case transferred to federal jurisdiction.

If there is a federal or state criminal conviction for the crime that was the basis for the seizure, the agency may accept all proceeds. If there is no federal or state criminal conviction, the agency may not accept any proceeds, except that the agency may accept all proceeds if one of the following circumstances applies and is explained in the report submitted under this subsection:

(b) The defendant was deported by the U.S. government.
(c) The defendant has been granted immunity in exchange for testifying or otherwise assisting a law enforcement investigation or prosecution.
(d) The defendant fled the jurisdiction.
(e) The property has been unclaimed for a period of at least 9 months.

President Jefferson

While this provision doesn’t prohibit Wisconsin law enforcement agencies from passing cases to the feds, it reduces the financial incentive to do so. The reporting requirements also make abuses of the system transparent and could create the momentum necessary to completely close the loophole down the road. Passage of SB61 takes a first step toward addressing the loophole.

As the Tenth Amendment Center previously reported the federal government inserted itself into the asset forfeiture debate in California. The feds clearly want the policy to continue.

Why?

We can only guess. But perhaps the feds recognize paying state and local police agencies directly in cash for handling their enforcement would reveal their weakness. After all, the federal government would find it nearly impossible to prosecute its unconstitutional “War on Drugs” without state and local assistance. Asset forfeiture “equitable sharing” provides a pipeline the feds use to incentivize state and local police to serve as de facto arms of the federal government by funneling billions of dollars into their budgets.

Why Is California Governor Brown Conducting Nuclear Explosion Drills in Sacramento?

 

Have you ever heard of a SNAP drill? It is a drill where a terrorist event is being rehearsed, along with the response, an the drill actually turns into a live event. The 7/7 Subway bombings, the Boston Marathon and of course, 9/11. Fortunately, as we all held our collective breath, this drill passed without incident. However, it is curious that this drill, in large part, was sponsored by a State that cannot pay its bills, and yet, they had the ability and resources to carry out the following?

On March 22nd  California authorities, headed by the very people that want exit California from the United States:

“First Responder Exercise @ #SleepTrainArena THUR.3/22. Very Realistic but don’t worry. Only an exercise. Fire trucks, Helicopters, Ambulances, “Victims” (Actors) & Media. We’re just training to serve YOU,”

Serve us from what? Save us from the next attempted false flag event?

The above was a press release made available on Twitter from Governor Jerry Brown’s office. This is the very governor who is helping to sponsor CALEXIT in which this governor wants to become El Presidente, in the words of Paul Preston. After all, hasn’t California declared itself a sanctuary state in violation of federal law. This is a state, if Governor Brown gets his way, that will no longer be a member of the United States and will become a protecorate of the United Nations under CALEXIT. How many contradictions and ironies did you just read? So what we have here is a governor who is planning to leave the United States, join the United Nations while he is practicing blowing up his state with nuclear weapons? Does anyone else think that these actions are unconnected and very, very strange, if not very suspicious?

Here is the full press release that was released related to this drill:

It is interesting that Jerry Brown’s forces invited media coverage, but only media coverage that is credentialed. Who “credentials” media” That would be the Governor’s office. In other words, those of us in the Independent Media who have exposed the geoengineered California drought, the Oroville Dam fiasco, the conversion of California’s drinking water from emanating from rivers, lakes and streams to the conversion of toilet to tap drinking water and of course, the infamous CALEXIT movement, were not invited because we do not drink from Governor Jerry Brown’s Koolaid.

Is there something that we are supposed to read into this event? Is this why the Independent Media was kept out because we would ask too many unfcomfortable  questions?

Has anyone else noticed the irony that Sacremento was the host city? Why would this potentially be important? In retrospect, and because of the fine work by Paul Preston, we now know that the Oroville Dam came within minutes of breach that would have wiped out everything between Oroville through Sacremento which lies about 70 miles to the south.

Two weeks ago, the Arizona Republic reported the following:

If you see a helicopter buzzing down the middle of a Phoenix street, or a group of Marines dressed head-to-toe in combat gear, don’t be alarmed.

It’s nothing crazy like “Minority Report” or “Mission Impossible,” it’s just Marines practicing before they’re deployed. 

The 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit will be conducting exercises and drills in Phoenix, Glendale and Mesa over the next four to six days, according to Capt. Daniel Vacchio. 

Roughly 100 Marines will make their way to Arizona from Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California, on Tuesday and likely will be in the state through the weekend. 

“We don’t want people who have been living here and working here to be afraid,” Vacchio said. “If you see aircraft or Marines, you can safely assume it’s us.”

Capt. Diann Rosenfeld, communication strategy officer for the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit, said that the Marines will be in Phoenix to work specifically on a series of exercises and drills called Realistic Urban Training. This group of Marines typically trains in 29 Palms, California, and is using this visit as an opportunity to train in an unfamiliar area before they deploy overseas this summer. 

“It’s so important for them to add this realistic element to their training,” Rosenfeld said. 

“Traiing before they are deployed?”  Where in Afghanistan are Marines going to encounter landscape like they would in Phoenix? The Common Sense Show Show has learned that these soldiers are training for war in California. Who would be their enemy? I wrote an article earlier in the week in which I discussed the Kilgali principles, negotiated by Obama and the United Nations, in which the United Nations would be called into to “defend Americans in times of domestic discord.

Did anyone else notice that the troops are from Camp Pendelton, north of San Diego?

Given the current state of affairs, it is hard to not conclude that the battle lines are being drawn in California and it would be a mistake to believe that the ensuing conflict would not spread across the country.

West Virginia Governor Tells Striking Teachers To Get Back In The Classroom

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) told his state’s striking teachers they “need to be back in the classroom” as he spoke at a series of town halls on Monday.

Speaking and taking questions in Wheeling, Martinsburg and Morgantown throughout the day, Justice urged the state’s educators to end their strike Tuesday and promised he’d establish a task force in the next seven to 10 days to look into some of their concerns.

“I love you … but I’m not happy with you. You should be appreciative of where you are,” Justice said to teachers in Wheeling.

“You need to be back in the classroom,” he said. “The kids need to be back in the classroom.”

The comments come days after Justice faced criticisms that he’s missing in action at the state Capitol. His administration has denied a Freedom of Information Act request to view his calendars and appointment books.

The teachers will continue their strike on Tuesday, despite Justice’s request, union leaders announced at a Monday rally at the Capitol.

West Virginia’s 20,000 teachers have been on strike since Thursday, after Justice offered them a 2 percent pay increase starting this summer, followed by 1 percent increases in 2020 and 2021. But the teachers, who ranked 48th in teacher pay across the U.S. in 2016, say that’s not enough to cover their rising costs of living. Many teachers have reported that they’ve had to take second jobs and yet still live paycheck-to-paycheck with their current salaries. 

Another major concern is that premiums for the state’s employee health plan will rise next year if the state doesn’t fill a $39 million shortfall.

“In West Virginia, we know they weren’t known for having high salaries, but they were known for good health insurance,” Don Scalise, a government and history teacher at Cabell Midland High School, told HuffPost last week. “That used to be something to attract people. Now that’s eroding.”

Justice said at the town halls Monday that his task force would try to address the insurance issue.

He also said he’d like to hold a special session to look into raising the severance tax on oil and gas producers in the state by 2.5 percent, something both sides agree could cover better pay and benefits for teachers, he said. That higher tax could be added as a condition in a bill currently moving through the state’s legislature.

Justice also caught flak for his choice of opening words during the town hall at Spring Mills High School in Martinsburg.

“OK, everybody. Nobody’s going to shoot at me or anything, are you?” he asked the crowd, just over a week after a gunman killed 17 students and adults at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

Russian ex-governor gets 13 years in major anti-corruption trial

Apart from the sentence, to be served in a maximum-security prison, the court ordered the ex-governor to pay a fine of 500 million rubles ($8.6 million) and banned him from assuming any official posts for five years after the sentence is served.

The announcement of the sentence took the judge several days. Other suspects in the case – the former adviser to the governor, the ex-deputy chairman of the regional government, and the former Sakhalin minister of agriculture and trade – were also convicted of corruption crimes and received lengthy prison sentences and multi-million-ruble fines.

Prosecutors said they were satisfied with the sentence, while the defense team claimed the conviction was a foregone conclusion. They intend to appeal the verdict.

Khoroshavin and other former officials of the Sakhalin regional administration were arrested in March 2015 and taken to Moscow for investigation. Searches in their homes and apartments yielded around $17 million in cash (in various currencies), expensive jewelry, and a collection of watches worth over $10 million. In addition, investigators said they confiscated around $2 billion in assets that belonged to the ex-governor.

Soon after the arrest, Khoroshavin was sacked due to lack of trust. At the trial, the ex-governor was charged with receiving a $5.6-million bribe for his role in the inclusion of a local energy corporation in a federal investment program. Further investigation uncovered additional episodes of bribery that brought the sum to 522 million rubles. Other suspects faced charges of bribery and money laundering.

After the court sentenced the former Sakhalin officials, the spokesperson for Russia’s top investigative body – the Investigative Committee – revealed additional details about the property seized from Khoroshavin. “Apparently, the [former] governor had a great need in expensive watches. He had 195 in his collection for a total price of 602 million rubles ($10.4 million),” Svetlana Petrenko told reporters. She added that the most expensive piece from the collection cost $700,000 and that shortly before his arrest in 2015, Khoroshavin had ordered a watch for 36 million rubles. 

Petrenko also said that a “significant part” of Khoroshavin’s assets were not properly declared and the court impounded and later confiscated a home, four city apartments, six cars, including a Mercedes limo, two Lexuses and two Bentleys, and numerous pieces of jewelry and expensive watches.

New Mexico Governor Wants to Grant Immunity to Police


SANTA FE, New Mexico – A years-old debate over use of force by police could resurface in the coming 30-day legislative session, as Gov. Susana Martinez plans to push legislation that would grant legal immunity to New Mexico law enforcement officers for actions in the line of duty.

The Republican governor, a former prosecutor, says the legislation would provide a shield of sorts for law enforcement officers – provided they’re adhering to training – in a state that has one of the nation’s highest violent crime rates.

“I don’t believe that police officers should be under this constant threat of lawsuits that will often cause them to pause,” Martinez recently told the Journal. “If they’re following their training, there should be something that protects them.”

However, critics describe the legislation as misguided and possibly unconstitutional, while citing a recent federal investigation that found Albuquerque police had a pattern of excessive force. That led to a settlement agreement between the city and the U.S. Department of Justice.

“Standing up for officers who are using excessive force and violating the Constitution is exactly the wrong way to move,” said Steven Robert Allen, the public policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union in New Mexico. “I don’t know what problem the governor thinks she’s addressing, but she seems to be going in the wrong direction.”

In recent years, numerous lawsuits have been filed against New Mexico law enforcement officers, and some of the suits have led to hefty settlement agreements.

In 2014, a judge awarded more than $6 million to the family of Christopher Torres, a mentally ill 27-year old man who was shot in his own backyard when police officers tried to confront him over a road rage incident.

Stephen Torres, his father, said Tuesday that he would oppose the legislation.

“We all should be a little paranoid about doing the right thing,” he said in an interview. “If a police officer does something wrong, he should be held accountable just like the rest of us.”

However, Martinez, who is entering her final regular session of the Legislature as governor, suggested that legislation granting legal immunity to law enforcement officers would protect not just the officers but taxpayers, too.

“This bill would protect citizens and law enforcement officers from the massive payouts that taxpayers are giving crooks and thieves who are hurt or injured by police officers who are doing their job,” Martinez said.

Without citing a specific case, she said such a law could apply when a police officer chases a suspect who ignores orders to stop and tackles the suspect.

Several recent lawsuits filed against law enforcement officers have in fact stemmed from non-deadly encounters.

For instance, a University of New Mexico student filed a lawsuit last year in which he claimed he was knocked down and injured after walking down a “skirmish line” of police officers who were in riot gear with an extended middle finger. The incident occurred at a protest against right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, and the lawsuit is still pending.

In another case, a murder suspect filed a 2016 lawsuit alleging Albuquerque police injured his wrist while handcuffing his “brittle arms.”

Meanwhile, the governor said the immunity bill, which had not yet been filed as of Tuesday, would not shield officers who intentionally disregard internal law enforcement policies and training.

Martinez has clashed in past legislative sessions with top-ranking Democratic lawmakers over proposals to increase criminal penalties, and the immunity legislation could face an uphill climb in the 30-day session, in part because short sessions held in even-numbered years are typically focused on budgetary matters.

The session officially begins Tuesday.
