Vince Ricci Deprived of 2A Rights After Defending Family

If you don’t understand why you need to exercise your fundamental right to bear arms, ask Vince Ricci. He could also explain to you why, under Democrat rule, your government is not your friend:

A Los Angeles father who pulled a gun on masked intruders when they tried to break into his luxury home has revealed he has been stripped of his firearm permit.

It is easier to lose a concealed carry permit in California than it is to obtain one.

‘After successfully defending my home and my family and my five-month-old child, California has now decided to suspend my Second Amendment [rights],’ Ricci said.

The November 4 incident was captured on video, so we can see for ourselves how to go about losing constitutional rights in the land of Gavin Newsom:

The sheriff’s office told Ricci the permit was pulled because he yelled at officers over sloppy police work.

He had reason to be armed:

His home was broken into in June and his car was broken into the month before that.

A night prior to the shootout, Ricci revealed a group of criminals driving a Dodge Charger with no license plates had been allegedly targeting other homes in his neighborhood.

Leftist social engineers have utilized the welfare state, lax enforcement, wrist slap punishments, defunding of the police, and Critical Race Theory/Black Lives Matter ideology to grow a vast army of violent criminal scumbags, which they have weaponized against the decent law-abiding Americans they aim to eradicate. It would be naive to expect Democrat authorities not to side with this army.

ChiComs Laugh at Collapse of San Francisco

The moonbattery-induced collapse of the erstwhile Golden State and specifically formerly beautiful San Francisco can be seen all the way from the other side of the Bamboo Curtain:

The beleaguered California city has been labelled a ‘total failure’ by some China-based outlets as the city prepares to host Chinese President Xi Jinping next week.

Once associated with the gold rush and scenic views, San Francisco is now known for producing moonbats like Nancy Pelosi and mayors Gavin Newsom, Dianne Feinstein, and London Breed.

[Chinese] headlines include the phrases ‘garbage city, ‘ruined city’ and ‘fallen city’, as crippling drug issues and widespread homeless problems continue to cause problems for the city.

The ChiComs are keeping tabs on American decline. They are aware of the Democrat Death Spiral:

Another headline from the Chinese site Phoenix also said the city had fallen into a ‘death cycle’.

Our communist adversaries chuckle that San Francisco collapsed into decay “as the Democrats advanced their radical agenda.”

ChiComs aren’t the only ones to notice this ship sinking under the weight of moonbattery. As public order disintegrates and the population degenerates into mobs of looters, retailers head for the lifeboats:

Over the past year, dozens of high profile retailers announced they would be vacating the downtown area of the city.

For example,

Retail stalwart Old Navy announced they would be shuttering their flagship store in the area last month, becoming the latest chain to exit the city.

Nordstrom also announced they would be closing all of their locations in the city.

According to leftists, it doesn’t matter that communism has failed spectacularly everywhere it has been imposed, because in America it will be different. Sure enough: in the hands of suet-soft politically correct liberals, American communism will be so bad that other communist regimes will laugh at it. They are laughing already.

Soros-Backed Oakland DA Pamela Price Robbed

As part of a campaign to escalate urban violence and politically destabilize the country, in hopes of creating a situation that will enable gun confiscation followed by authoritarian rule, George Soros has spent massive amounts of money helping into office pro-criminal district attorneys throughout the country. Examples include Alvin Bragg (New York), George Gascon (Los Angeles), Kim Foxx (Chicago), Kim Ogg (Houston), Larry Krasner (Philadelphia), Chesa Boudin (San Francisco), Kim Gardner (St Louis), Marilyn Mosby (Baltimore), Monique Worrell (central Florida), Jason Williams (New Orleans) — and Pamela Price of Oakland, who on Friday afternoon had her work laptop stolen from her car during a smash-and-grab robbery outside a “family justice center.”

Price foolishly tried calling the police, who tend not to exert themselves in places like Oakland because they know the DA won’t prosecute anyway.

ABC7 reported her bodyguard parked the $90,000 county Tahoe SUV just outside the Family Justice Center and came back to find the windows smashed.

Imagine how much worse life in Oakland is for those who don’t have presumably armed bodyguards.

A source from the Oakland Police Department reported that Price waited an hour for authorities to arrive before she decided to file a report online.

At least the culprits might get prosecuted, in the unlikely event they are apprehended.

Price had some help in her rise to power, as a story from last August reminds us:

Alameda County district attorney Pamela Price, who took $130,000 from [George] Soros for her failed 2018 bid, secured the position for her boyfriend Antwon Cloird, the San Jose Mercury News reported Sunday. Cloird joined Price’s office as a “senior program specialist” in 2023, with a $115,502 per year salary. Price brought him onto her team without disclosing their relationship, although it is an “open secret” in the office, according to the report.

Since becoming district attorney in 2022, Price has presided over a massive crime surge in Oakland…

Crime in Oakland has been skyrocketing across the board. Business owners recently held a strike to protest rising crime and inadequate protection. Lifelong residents have been escaping. Even the Oakland NAACP is fed up:

The Black advocacy group wrote a letter that was aimed directly at Price.

‘Failed leadership, including the movement to defund the police, our District Attorney’s unwillingness to charge and prosecute people who murder and commit life-threatening serious crimes, and the proliferation of anti-police rhetoric have created a heyday for Oakland criminals,’ the letter said.

‘If there are no consequences for committing crime in Oakland, crime will continue to soar.’

That’s the point of installing tools like Price, who has pushed for less prison time even for murderers. She responded to the NAACP with disappointment that “a great African-American organization would take a false narrative on such an important matter.”

Devout liberals know there is only one True Narrative, according to which criminals are the good guys because racism.

In other Oakland crime news,

Less than 24 hours after launching, Oakland Police Department has ended the social media crime reporting program.

The announcement went out Friday night, soon after Price lost her laptop.

Witnesses to car break-ins should call 9-1-1 instead of sending messages to those deactivated accounts.

No reason was given for the sudden termination.

If you don’t want to be a crime victim, stay out of towns where George Soros backed the DA.

Marylander Laphonza Butler Picked for California Senate

You may not have to be a California resident to qualify as California Senator, but as Gavin Newsom announced in advance, you do have to be a black woman. This rules out 94% of the population. From there, he narrowed the field further to a black woman who is publicly homosexual and of course radically left-wing. Out of this pool, he chose the one most conspicuously devoted to evil, pro-abortion militant Laphonza Butler.

Butler is president of ultraleft EMILY’s List, a PAC that exists to promote the killing of unborn children. It is now helping her pretend she doesn’t live on the opposite side of the country:

“FEC filings from EMILY’s List record Laphonza Butler’s residence as Silver Springs, Maryland as recently as 31 days ago,” said FEC analyst Rob Pyers. “FPPC and FEC filings indicate that soon-to-be California Senator Laphonza Butler hasn’t been a resident of the state for over two years.”

Pyers noted that EMILY’s List was already cleaning up their website to hide where Butler allegedly lives. The organization removed the following line from their website: “She lives in Maryland with her partner Neneki Lee and their daughter Nylah.”

Surely Pyers would not be such a racist sexist homophobe as to suggest that residency requirements pertain to a Left-Wing Lesbian of Color.

If you like her fellow explicit identity politics selections Kamala Harris and Ketanji Brown Jackson, you will love Laphonza Butler. She personifies both race/sex favoritism and the war on morality, making her the ideal Democrat.

Also, she was a union leader for the infamously pernicious SEIU.

As for political experience, Newsom describes Laphonza as “a trusted adviser to Vice President Harris.” Experience conducting trainwrecks will be helpful if Democrats continue to consolidate power.

Look out, Michelle Obama; you could have competition after Democrats dump Biden next year.

August to Be Transgender History Month

One month out of 12 is not enough for our degenerate rulers to devote to grinding depravity and psychosexual insanity into our faces. So California is adding another:

The California State Assembly has voted to officially recognize August as “Transgender History Month,” beginning in 2024. The resolution, which passed on Wednesday, makes California the first state in the United States to have a month that officially recognizes the history and contributions of transgender people.

Those still queasy from being force-fed LGBTism for the entire month of June may recall that the T stands for trans. But it takes more than one month to recognize all the positive contributions to society made by transvestites — or rather, it would take more than a month to come up with any.

The bill’s author is Assemblymember Matt Haney, Democrat of San Francisco.

[I]n 2021, San Francisco became the first city in the U.S. to declare August as Transgender History Month, which was repeated by Santa Clara County shortly after.

This demonstrates how sickness spawned in the cesspool San Francisco metastasizes. That’s how Nancy Pelosi came to be one of the most powerful members of the federal government for the past 20 years. Expect Transsexual Reverence Month to join Pride Month nationwide shortly.

We are still a few years away from MAP Month, but it’s coming.

California Judge Prevents Parents From Protecting Kids

A few years prior to the culturally catastrophic Supreme Court decision imposing homosexual marriage at the federal level, voters in California had a chance to weigh in. They passed Proposition 8 in 2008, banning it. Gay federal judge Vaughn Walker overruled them, until such time as the media could stampede the herd in the desired direction. Similar tactics are used against parents who object to their children being transsexualized behind their backs:

A judge in California on Wednesday issued a temporary restraining order on the Chino Valley Unified School District’s recently adopted policy that requires schools to inform parents about student gender transitions.

San Bernardino Superior Court Judge Tom Garza granted the temporary order amid an ongoing civil rights lawsuit filed last month by California Attorney General Rob Bonta, who claimed the district’s “forced outing policy” discriminates against the privacy rights of LGBTQ+ students and the California Constitution.

According to the official narrative, children are already sexually psychotic before liberals get their hands on them. The teachers who brainwash them and the doctors who chemically castrate them in preparation for eventual sex change mutilation are only trying to protect them from their parents, who are the villains of the story.

Chino Valley Unified School District, which represents over 26,000 students in San Bernardino County, passed a policy in July that requires teachers to inform parents within three days if their child uses names and pronouns different from their birth certificate or requests to use school facilities or join sports team opposite of their gender.

Sonja Shaw, President of the Chino Valley Unified School District Board of Education, is an advocate for parents’ rights.

“I don’t understand why they are so gung ho on this issue, but everything else we have to inform the parents about,” Shaw said.

In case she really doesn’t understand, let’s spell it out. Homosexuals and transsexuals don’t reproduce; they recruit. They do it largely through schools. This is facilitated by the Democratic Party, which controls most schools and knows it can count on the overwhelming majority of the LGBT vote, being the party of degeneracy and moral depravity.

The left-wing creeps running California are very explicitly coming for kids. Republican State Senator Scott Wilk has recommended fleeing the state if that’s what it takes to protect your children from having their lives destroyed. Good advice — except that Democrats will impose their agenda nationally.

Another Purse Snatch and Drag

Sadistic fiends who enjoyed watching an oppressed person achieve social justice by bouncing an old lady’s head off the pavement while stealing her purse in Hacienda Heights might like this story from up the Left Coast in Oakland:

Shocking video has emerged of a woman being pistol-whipped and dragged across gravel by two thugs in Democrat-led Oakland as the city grapples with a surging crime wave.

The attack happened last week Wednesdayat 6.15 pm on International Boulevard, and left the unidentified woman with severe injuries, police investigating in the East Bay city said.

Footage shows the woman being confronted by two men who try to grab several items from her, including her purse, before she’s violently struck with the weapon.

She is then seen falling to the ground before being pulled across the floor by her purse as both men rifle through her pockets. The attackers are both on the run and the woman’s condition as of Tuesday is unknown.

This latest incident is an example of violent crime running rampant across the Dem-led city with business owners now comparing the area to a ‘battleground’ akin to wartime Vietnam. It’s become so severe that the city’s police force is also warning residents to secure their homes while they’re inside.

Here’s a better idea: why don’t we secure the whole country by voting Democrats out of office before it degenerates into California?

Under liberal rule, this behavior is encouraged by the media and effectively permitted by authorities.

Criminalizing Speaking Up at School Board Meetings

In California, it won’t be necessary for Merrick Garland to sic the FBI on concerned parents who speak up at schoolboard meetings about the depraved state of affairs prevailing in public schools. State police we be well positioned to handle the job:

SB 596, introduced by State Sen. Anthony Portantino (D-Glendale), would expand an existing law that punishes those who cause “substantial disorder” in schools to include school board meetings as well.

The bill does not define “substantial,” which can be taken to mean “annoying to our liberal rulers.”

Once it sails through for Gavin Newsom’s signature, this will lighten the load for federal tyrants:

The Biden administration has already come under criticism for colluding with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to produce a letter urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate parents who showed up at school board meetings as if they were domestic terrorists. Garland issued a directive to Department of Justice employees to monitor school board meetings.

Remember Scott Smith, who was manhandled by the police and demonized by the media for objecting to his 14-year-old daughter being sexually assaulted in the girls’ restroom by a boy wearing a skirt? There will be more like him until regular people learn to shut up and love their degenerate moonbat overlords.

California Gets a Shot Across the Bow

No sign yet of rivers turning to blood, dust becoming lice, plagues of frogs, flies, and locusts, 3 days of darkness, or the death of first-born children, but judgment may be getting underway in sin-soaked California:

California residents raced a uniquely harrowing set of circumstances on Sunday as an earthquake shook the ground in the Los Angeles County area while Tropical Storm Hilary ravaged roads and caused severe flooding.

The rainbow that has been insolently appropriated and defiled is a symbol of God’s promise not to punish sin by flooding the world. That does not rule out a little high water:

Palm Springs has been submerged in a deluge of floodwater as Tropical Storm Hilary continues to batter California. …

Shocking footage emerged throughout Sunday of cars, trucks and ambulances swallowed by flood waters in Palm Springs.

Palm Springs is regarded as a gay mecca even by California standards.

Speaking of the LGBT community, in June a ceremony honoring the belligerently blasphemous Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence was held at Dodger Stadium. Now we read this:

Remarkable aerial footage showed the iconic home of the LA Dodgers – which has stood for more than six decades – engulfed in a sea of water after the first tropical storm to hit Southern California in 84 years.

Here’s the view from above:

Hilary is a gender-neutral name, so it fits with California politics. It means “cheerful” or “happy.”

Furry Attack on Public Beach

It’s a scene that could only happen in a society that has decayed into a freak show:

A fight broke out at a Furries meet up when a man was caught filming members of the group at a California beach.

Two people in black wolf costumes got into an altercation in Huntington Beach on Saturday after a man who was recording them refused to leave – with some commenters suggesting that he is a scorned ex-lover of one of the participants.

The incident, which was caught on video, happened at a Sunset Beach Bonfire ‘furmeet’ where hundreds of Furries were out in full force.

Furries are degenerates who identify as cartoon animals, usually for purposes of sexual gratification. Be forewarned that anyone who identifies as something other than what they are has mental problems, and people with mental problems can be dangerous.

Looks like it was the guy who got clocked with the bullhorn who was screaming “Oh my God” in falsetto, lending support to the spurned gay lover theory. Where are tsunamis when you need them?

Assisted Suicide Skyrockets in California

In Canada, state-sanctioned killing is presented as a solution for everything except crime (and regretting sex change procedures) — including anorexia, PTSD, being poor, needing a wheelchair lift, and long waits to see a doctor. When it comes to ghoulish moonbattery, can the USA hope to catch up to Canada? Sure we can; we have California:

The number of deaths from assisted suicide in California increased by 63% in just one year, according to the state’s latest report.

Consistent with the principles of anarchotyranny, the same hyperregulatory state that soon won’t let people drive normal cars passed a law legalizing assisted suicide.

Since it took effect, the number of people who died under the lethal legislation has climbed each year, and 2022 was no different. In 2021, 525 people died from assisted suicide. In 2022, that number rose to 853.

Why such a drastic increase? In 2021, California legislators moved to remove safeguards from assisted suicide, including decreasing the waiting period to just 48 hours, when it was previously 15 days. … Some patients have also reported that insurance companies in California are refusing to cover treatment, and instead, will only pay for assisted suicide.

This state of affairs was created by the same liberals who bark that we must be denied the fundamental right of self-defense because we might use guns to commit suicide.

Obese Women Loot in California

The latest oppressed identity group to join the Cultural Marxist coalition is the morbidly obese. They are even holding a convention this Halloween to celebrate their hurtful marginalization. You can tell they are put-upon because they shop like Black Lives Matter looters — just a little more slowly:

Via Daily Mail:

The brazen heist unfolded [last] Saturday at the discount retailer’s North Freeway Boulevard location in Sacramento, where the three women were caught on camera trudging away with shopping carts loaded with stolen goods.

‘D**n look at these people stealing! Say hi to the camera!’ the bystander filming the incident can be heard saying, as alarms blared and the shoplifters piled mounds of clothing and shoes into the trunk of a red Dodge Charger.

Under moonbat rule, shoplifting is all but legal in California. Property is theft, according to the prevailing ideology. However, in this case authorities might investigate:

[I]n addition to audaciously looting the Burlington store, the three shoplifters had parked in a handicap spot without displaying a placard.

Major chains have been forced to close stores due to out of control shoplifting. No worries; California lawmakers are addressing the issue:

Although California has been one of the epicenters of organized retail crime, state lawmakers there are considering legislation that would ban store employees from confronting thieves.

Senate Bill 553 was passed by the state Senate last month and is currently in committee in the state Assembly.

No problem Democrats create is so awful that they can’t pass legislation making it even worse.

California Bills Come for Children

As moonbats openly taunt, they are coming for your children. They will do this not only through their control of the entertainment and education establishments, but through direct government force.

The Land of Fruits and Nuts is once again at the vanguard, with two bills that have already passed the State Assembly:

The text of AB 957 states that it “would include a parent’s affirmation of the child’s gender identity or gender expression as part of the health, safety, and welfare of the child.”

As the California Globe reported, the bill could cause a parent to “lose custody for not ‘affirming’ or agreeing to a child’s claims about gender identity.” This would apply in custody disputes in which one parent wants to “affirm” the child’s confusion about gender, and the other does not.

As if that weren’t enough,

A related bill, AB 665, passed in the State Assembly on April 10 and has also made its way into the Senate chambers. If signed into law, it would allow a minor as young as 12 to be emancipated from his or her parents and transferred into state custody without a court order.

Former San Diego City Councilman and two-time Congressional candidate Carl DeMaio, R-CA, is leading the charge to oppose AB 665. He said the bill “effectively takes children away from their parents if they aren’t ‘woke’ enough.” DeMaio added: “The worst part is that the bill permits even counselors and interns to make and facilitate decisions to allow the state to take these kids away from their parents.”

Both bills will soon be law:

If one or both pieces of legislation were to pass the State Senate, where Democrats hold an 80% majority, the bills would head to the desk of Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-CA.

Newsom can be expected to eagerly showcase his allegiance to the LGBT agenda at the expense of parents — again.

As Republican State Senator Scott Wilk advises, parents need to flee California. After that, they need to protect their new home from the metastasizing cancer that has claimed the Left Coast.

First they groom, then they confiscate.

Arizona Criminals Exploit California Recycling Moonbattery

Enterprising Arizona criminals have found a use for the righteous green posturing that prevails on the Left Coast. Ecomoonbattery can be converted to cash:

Over the span of eight months, the United States Department of Justice investigated several recycling centers around [Riverside County, California] and found that the operators illegally redeemed $7.6 million worth of aluminum cans and plastic bottles that were brought over illegally from the neighboring state.

The criminal recyclers were exploiting the California Redemption Value (CRV) program.

The program allows Californians to return beverage containers to privately-owned recycling centers in exchange for $.05 to $.10 per container.

It’s funded by Californians every time they purchase an eligible item: the CRV tax is tacked onto the initial cost, but can be redeemed upon return. By redeeming ineligible items from outside of the state, scammers effectively steal money from the pockets of Californians.

The theft started with California bureaucrats stealing from those who are forced to pay extra for the eligible items. The out-of-state criminals just wanted a piece of the action. Both are doing their part to placate the planet by reprocessing garbage that would otherwise end up where it belongs: buried in a landfill.

This isn’t the first time:

Earlier this year, two Arizona business owners were arrested for their alleged roles in a $10 million recycling fraud scheme, in which they allegedly trucked over hundreds of tons of recyclables from Arizona to California to take advantage of the CRV program.

A similar scheme involving another group of Arizonans was busted in 2018 after defrauding California to the tune of $16.1 million.

Don’t worry, Californians. You will get your revenge by reducing Phoenix to a second Los Angeles as it fills up with refugees from your moonbattery-ruined state.
