Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! - Patrick Henry

    “Now compounding these problems is a bill currently under consideration in the Legislature, Assembly Bill 1745, that would outlaw the sale and registration of new light-duty vehicles powered by internal combustion engines beginning in 2040.”

    If the crisis of global warming/climate change is so dire, why wait until 2040? Why not make the law go into effect now? And….let’s not grandfather in any existing cars; demand all cars with internal combustion engines be outlawed immediately.

    Just think how that will spur new jobs and industry, with everyone in California now buying a new car (except for those who already own a Chevy Volt).

    Tourists entering California can leave their cars at the border in order to walk, bike, or use mass transit.

    (BTW….how can they call it “mass transit” when most buses and trains stop nowhere near the cathedral?)

    Fox News: Stephen Colbert hopes God will encourage Oprah Winfrey to run for president

    Stephen Colbert is reaching out to God to encourage Oprah Winfrey to run for president. The media mogul sat down with Colbert on Tuesday’s Late Show, where she once again stated that she has no plans on running for president, despite feeling “humbled and honored” by the outpouring of encouragement she’s received. Colbert asked Winfrey about past comments she made, where she explained that she would need a clear sign from God before she would even consider running and that she hasn’t yet seen one.

    “Oh, hey God! It’s God everybody, give it up for the Lord,” Colbert shouted to the crowd. “I’m sorry about this Oprah, I apologize. I apologize, God stops by every once in a while he’s a fan. Can I help you Lord, I’m kinda in the middle of talking to somebody important,” Colbert joked. “Now God, I don’t mean to hurry you along, but is there something you’d like to tell Oprah?” “Oh yeah, I hear thou seekest a sign,” the animated God said. “Well, is this clear enough?” he added, pointing to a “Run!” sign beside him. Oprah certainly got a kick out of it, but wasn’t exactly convinced and joked that running was already a part of her exercise routine. “How do I make this clearer, Oprah. Oh, I know,” ‘God’ responded. “Oprah Winfrey 2020, yes she can!,” he added now dressed in full-on Oprah campaign gear. “Well, there it is,” Colbert joined back in. “You asked for it. There it is Oprah, a big endorsement.” Despite Colbert’s embarrassing attempt at a joke, Oprah still wasn’t convinced. “God, take it from me, Oprah, it’s gonna be okay. Everything is gonna be okay and I’m sure you are going to find someone that you are just inspired by in 2020.”

    Wash. Free Beacon: Trump Administration Sues California Over Sanctuary-State Law

    The Trump administration escalated its war with California’s sanctuary immigration policy late Tuesday by suing the state over its laws preventing local law enforcement from working with federal authorities to detain and possibly later deport illegal immigrants who have committed crimes in the state. The Justice Department sued the state of California, along with its Gov. Jerry Brown and Xavier Becerra, the state’s attorney general, for passing and enforcing its sanctuary laws, which place sharp limits on how local law enforcement agencies can communicate with federal immigration authorities. The legal action is the Trump’s administration’s latest attempt to enforce federal immigration laws despite efforts by several states and cities to thwart federal law by claiming that 10th Amendment states’ rights supersede the federal government’s authority.

  10. Bodhisattva says:

    Suing the state doesn’t help, even just including Brown and Becerra isn’t enough. Every public official who publicly takes an action in support of sanctuary policy must be charged with a crime of obstruction or whatever is appropriate.

    I Tried And Failed To Interview The Instagram Star Who Says She Has Dirt On Trump And Russia
    My 48 hours inside the eccentric world of Anastasia Vashukevich.

    It is unlikely that Anastasia Vashukevich, better known as Nastya Rybka, the Instagram star from Belarus at the center of the drama, has footage that will blow the lid off Russian interference in the US election. There’s no evidence that she is the “only witness and missing link” on the issue of Russian meddling, as she’s claimed in an effort to get asylum in the US.

    Zoo’s smoking orangutan riles animal activists in Indonesia – don’t animals have rights, according to activists, which should allow them to choose whether they want to smoke or not.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/zoos-smoking-orangutan-riles-animal-activists-indonesia-124514118.html

    An Indonesian zoo infamous for mistreatment of animals is being slammed again by activists after a video emerged of one of its orangutans smoking.

    Activist Marison Guciano said Wednesday the smoking great ape is further evidence of a lack of supervision and education at Bandung Zoo, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) southwest of the capital, Jakarta.

    In the video shot Sunday, a young man flicks his half-smoked cigarette into the primate’s enclosure. It’s picked up by the reddish-brown primate, who expertly puffs on it to laughter from the crowd.

    One thing you’ll learn in Africa: Don’t teach monkeys to drink and smoke, because they’ll take all your booze and smokes (and, if you don’t like that, they bite).
