Californians done with liberal policies? Los Angeles DA loses appeal, San Fran DA faces recall

Are liberal California cities finally having “buyer’s remorse” as their state turns into a cesspool of drugs, homelessness and crime? Even The New York Times released an article titled “In San Francisco, Democrats are at War with Themselves Over Crime.” That’s liberal speak for ‘uh oh, our policies are making things worse.’

San Francisco has “buyer’s remorse” after electing “rogue” District Attorney, and son of domestic terrorists, Chesa Boudin, writes National Review. “Fueled by concerns about burglaries and hate crimes, San Francisco’s liberal district attorney, Chesa Boudin, faces a divisive recall in a famously progressive city” writes the Times.

The Los Angeles Times reports that homicides hit 397 in 2021, which was the highest number in 15 years and a 50 percent increase from 2019. Robberies involving firearms were also up 57 percent from 2020 and 60 percent from 2019. So far 2022 is also outpacing 2021.

“Violent crime of all types through April 23 was up 7.2% compared to last year, with much of the increase from aggravated assaults and robberies, many of which involved firearms, according to police. Robberies are up 18.5% over last year,” the Times said.

In Los Angeles late last week, an appeals court upheld a lower court’s ruling that LA District Attorney George Gascon cannot refuse to charge criminals under the state’s there-strikes law.

The Western Journal reports:

After Gascon took office in December 2020, he implemented a series of what he characterized as reforms designed to end “mass incarceration.”

“The measures included barring deputy DAs from prosecuting strikes, special circumstances and sentencing enhancements,” according to Fox.

The Association of Deputy District Attorneys for Los Angeles County responded by suing Gascon that same month to stop him from forcing them to break the law.

“While an elected District Attorney has wide discretion in determining what charges to pursue in an individual case, that discretion does not authorize him or her to violate the law or to direct attorneys representing the district attorney’s office to violate the law,” Michele Hanisee, president of the ADDA, said in a December 2020 news release announcing the suit.

Fox reported, “California’s Three Strike Law was enacted in 1994 after voters approved Proposition 184 by an overwhelming majority.”

    California voted for those people. You get what ask for. Let’s see if they learned a lesson. My bet is no they haven’t.

    Sara,
    This article prompted me to send to you, today, my resent message regarding my response to Peggy Hall’s Taming the Tyrants. In additon, this is my response to this article.
    It’s ALL stall tactics. The Elderly are dying. we are useless eaters to them. What happened to sedition, insurrection, and treason. WE need our beloved military now to squash the bugs that these traitors are. These now are cornered lions and they lash out at the weak.Our brave men and women are creating miracles around the world. We now need a miracle in California. May G-d bless them with strength and bravery during these horrific and dangerous times.

    Are liberals done with liberalism? That is absurdly wishful thinking. Are fish done with water?

    I don’t think Democrats will have any problems getting elected in California, where there really isn’t a Republican Party. The primary system has eliminated Republicans from the general election ballot.
    Likely the same thing will happen throughout the rest of the country, since trends in California lead the rest of the country by about five to ten years.
    Right now, the politicians in Washington DC are getting the Republican Party outlawed, and the courts aren’t opposing, and in fact are assisting them by refusing to take cases. Widespread chaos and, violence enables the Democratic Party to get elected, as happened in 2020.
    The Watts riots permanently destroyed large parts of Los Angeles. and there hasn’t been any Republican representation in those areas since, so the greater the destruction in Los Angeles, San Francisco and the rest of California, the stronger will be the hold by the Democrats.
    The flight of companies and industries from California, to such places as Texas and Idaho indicates residents of California understand this and are leaving rather than deal with the long term consequences.

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
