Sanctuary State Mayhem

Is aiding and abetting murder still against the law? If so, every Democrat in the sanctuary state of California had better seek representation in light of the infuriating case of Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza:

An illegal immigrant with prior convictions and multiple arrests for offenses such as false imprisonment and battery has been taken into custody in the stabbing death of a woman in San Jose, California.

The first of his US arrests was for illegally crossing the border from Mexico. If only that were not so easy to do, it would not have led to a far more serious arrest.

According to police,

Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, stalked 59-year-old Bambi Larson before breaking into her home and killing her in her bedroom last month.

Uh oh. This might be a violation of his probation for false imprisonment, burglary, and drug charges.

Kate Steinle’s death made no impression on California’s moonbat ruling class.

Prior to the murder,

Santa Clara County officials ignored no less than nine U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests for the self-professed gang member.

That likely resulted in Bambi Larson’s death. It is what we have come to expect of the liberal weenies running the erstwhile Golden State. They will always side with foreigners against Americans, and with criminals against the law-abiding.

Speaking of weenies, the killer will be glad to hear that Gavin Newsom has unilaterally declared a moratorium on executions, in arrogant opposition to the will of the voters as expressed in propositions 66 and 62 in 2016. Prop 66 fast-tracked executions in California; it passed. Prop 62 would have abolished the death penalty; it failed. No matter, Governor Gavin has spoken.

California May Ban Dissection in Science Class

Moonbats enjoy screaming in your face that you are a dummy because you reject science. Then they scream that taxes control the weather, babies are not Homo sapiens until they pass through the birth canal, and dissection in science class must be banned:

Assembly member [Ash] Kalra [D-San Jose] introduced the bill last week that would ban dissection in all schools, altering the California education code.

The current situation is moonbatty, but not moonbatty enough for Kalra.

The current law allows students who have a moral objection to dissecting an animal in class to refrain from the dissection and complete an alternate education project approved by their teacher that teaches the same lesson.

Nothing teaches the same lesson as an actual dissection. That’s why they go to all the trouble with the frogs and the smelly formaldehyde. But according to the State of California, dissection entails the “harmful or destructive use of animals.”

Allowing moonbats to opt out if they think it is morally wrong to learn about biology by dissecting a dead animal does not suffice. It must be forbidden for everyone (even in private schools). That way, students will learn something far more important than how organisms function. They will learn how piously their Democrat rulers revere the animals.

If the bill passes, even dissecting invertebrates will be banned. Dead worms rejoice!

Homeless Zombie Hordes Take Over Venice Beach

The Democrat Party is a pincer operation, by which the poor and the rich attack the middle class from opposite sides. The surest indication that liberals are in charge is the drastic shrinking of the middle class. Eventually, if progressives prevail, everyone will be either rich or homeless. This is the case in the prototype for liberal utopia, Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

Read all about it here (or here), or watch the video version:

Nonsense on Stilts

The expression “nonsense on stilts” has taken concrete form in Petaluma, California. San Francisco artist Brian Goggin has been commissioned to place five bathtubs atop stilts up to 24 feet high on a riverside esplanade.

“They should use this money to fix potholes.” said Julie Black, a bartender who stopped to check out a mock-up of Mr. Goggin’s installation.

As with most wasteful government spending, there are some who approve:

Mary Jarvis, a 70-year-old retiree, wore a button that urged, “Let the Tubs Rise.” She said: “I like the whimsy of it. It makes me laugh.”

Taxpayers won’t be laughing if one of the bathtubs comes down on someone’s head, prompting a $zillion lawsuit. The installation itself costs $150,000.

A fake tub was raised for the dry run mockup…

The action was accompanied by a man beating a drum. Once the canvas tub was in place, the drummer, Ed Holmes, turned to the crowd and said: “If you want to ponder, ‘What the hell does this mean?’ do so at this time.”

We know what it means; it means public money is frivolously wasted by lunatics.

When Goggin addressed the crowd by bullhorn in an attempt to win over skeptics,

A young man in the back shouted, “Go back to San Francisco!”

Too late. Like Los Angeles, San Francisco is so full of moonbattery that it is sloshing over the sides to flood the rest of the state — and the rest of the country.

A GoFundMe page by opponents of the bathtubs has raised over $4,000. But you can’t fight city hall.

Killing Your Own Goats in Silicon Valley

Just how wacky are the moonbats who rule over the Internet from Silicon Valley? Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey offered a few clues when he sat down for a marathon interview with his fellow progs at Rolling Stone and discussed Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg:

What was your most memorable encounter with Zuckerberg?
Well, there was a year when he was only eating what he was killing. He made goat for me for dinner. He killed the goat.

In front of you?
No. He killed it before. I guess he kills it. He kills it with a laser gun and then the knife. Then they send it to the butcher.

A . . . laser gun?
I don’t know. A stun gun. They stun it, and then he knifed it. Then they send it to a butcher. Evidently in Palo Alto there’s a rule or regulation that you can have six livestock on any lot of land, so he had six goats at the time. I go, “We’re eating the goat you killed?” He said, “Yeah.” I said, “Have you eaten goat before?” He’s like, “Yeah, I love it.” I’m like, “What else are we having?” “Salad.” I said, “Where is the goat?” “It’s in the oven.” Then we waited for about 30 minutes. He’s like, “I think it’s done now.” We go in the dining room. He puts the goat down. It was cold. That was memorable. I don’t know if it went back in the oven. I just ate my salad.

For once Dorsey did the right thing. Too bad his company rarely does the right thing when it comes to banning people from Twitter.

Yellow Vests Appear in California as Gavin Newsom Is Sworn In

It isn’t some sick joke; it’s real. Muculent former San Franfreakshow Mayor Gavin Newsom has been sworn in as the Governor of California. He will of course govern from the globalist ultraleft:

California’s new governor is promising the most populous state will be a “sanctuary to all who seek it”…

He says children should not be “ripped away from their parents” at the border, and they also shouldn’t be left hungry while Trump pledges to spend billions of dollars on “a wall that should never be built.”

That is, he will double down on the open borders and welfare policies that have demographically transformed California from the state that elected Ronald Reagan into the state that elected himself.

Chillingly, Newsom threatened that California will “write America’s future.”

But even in California, there is pushback. On Monday, the same day that Newsom was sworn in…

Six famous sculptures by Auguste Rodin in Stanford University’s Memorial Court were adorned in yellow vests, at the same time that Newsom was making his inauguration speech in the state capitol. The statues are symbols of civic virtue.

Californians started seeing yellow vests in December, when activists of the New California state movement began wearing the vests “in solidarity with French citizens” against socialism and globalism.

The statues are collectively called the Burghers of Calais. Calais is a city in France that was swamped with Third World welfare colonists, thanks to globalist open borders policies of the type advanced by Newsom.

France’s Yellow Vest protests oppose these policies, as well as extravagantly expensive environmentalist radicalism of the sort that Newsom also champions. The protests have now escalated to the point of physically attacking a government ministry, forcing government minister and close Macron ally Benjamin Griveaux to be evacuated.

If France can get fed up with moonbattery, so can California. Already the New California movement hopes to split off rural areas into a new state that would be out from under the thumb of the leftists who dominate the densely populated areas.
