A Governor Involved in Trivial Pursuit

California has problems. Governor Newsom is being recalled for various reasons (probably a good thing, only the last time California recalled a governor, they wound up with Arnold Schwarzenegger). But Governor Newsom is currently doing some things that might help businesses in the state that have been negatively impacted by his shutdowns.

Gregg Jarrett is reporting the following today:

California theme parks will reopen April 1, but with one caveat: shouting and screaming must be limited. How fun! California Attractions and Parks Association (CAPA) executive director Erin Guerrero said in a statement, “California’s amusement parks are excited to responsibly reopen under the recently released state guidance…these guidelines do not require parks to prohibit screaming.” However, that seems to be exactly what will happen.

The theme parks must abide by Governor Gavin Newsom’s updated Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Although Governor Newsom does not himself follow his own guidelines, he will demand the citizens of California to.

The anti-fun police are at it again. Let’s look at this a minute. The at-risk population for the coronavirus is the over-60 crowd or those with certain health issues. How likely are they to be on roller coasters? Can’t the state protect those at risk and let the people who are not at risk enjoy themselves?

The article notes:

In the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, California businesses must limit shouting and raised voices because, well, they are “known” to cause an increased spread of COVID-19. So, while Guerrero used empty words, “the California Attractions and Parks Association Responsible Reopening Plan addresses the need to limit shouting, screaming and hollering on roller coasters, thrill rides and other theme park attractions” reports The OC Register.

CAPA represents Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and California’s Great America. Don’t expect to have too much fun there as “CAPA proposes the theme parks can ‘mitigate the effects of shouting’ through the use of mandatory face coverings and modified seat loading patterns on amusement park rides.”

Good grief!

The Dangers Of An Unsecured Border

Gregg Jarrett posted an article today about the crisis that is unfolding at our southern border.

The article reports:

U.S. Representatives John Katko (R-NY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) visited with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials at the southern border, and what they found is beyond a border crisis. It’s not just refugees fleeing to the United States in hopes of a better life that we are facing.

Some migrants arrested at the border in just the last week are “threats to national security who are listed on a federal terrorist watch list.” In an interview with Syracuse.com, Katko said he spoke with border patrol agents Monday during a fact-finding trip with roughly a dozen House Republicans to the border near El Paso, Texas.

Katko learned over 100 migrants have been caught crossing the border illegally on Sunday night alone. “They’re getting very bold now,” Katko said. Syracuse.com reports “U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials reported making 100,441 arrests and detentions in February, up 28% from the previous month and 173% from last year.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke in a news conference Monday alongside Katko to discuss their findings. “When I walked through the facility, there were more Haitians than any other people I saw,” said McCarthy, who also mentioned people on the terror watch list from Iran, Yemen, and Sri Lanka, have been mixed in with those fleeing Central America.

Katko said of the border crisis that not only are they not testing for COVID-19, but about half of border patrol agents have not received the vaccine. Katko also said because Biden stopped the construction of Trump’s border wall, unnecessary gaps have been left and are being exploited by smugglers.

Lawlessness reigns on our southern border. The cartels are getting rich. Human traffickers and drug smugglers are exploiting the open border. People who have tested positive for Covid-19 are given bus tickets and plane tickets to travel throughout the country. This is a recipe for disaster. Our current government is not working to protect the American people, which is its major responsibility.

More Evidence For The Mainstream Media To Ignore

Gregg Jarrett posted an article today about more evidence that is coming to light about the activities of the Biden family during the time Joe Biden was Vice-President.

The article reports:

Joe Biden’s claim that he has never discussed business directly with his son Hunter “is false” says Tony Bobulinski. “I have firsthand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden” added Bobulinski who has been outed as a colleague of the Bidens in text messages obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

On May 1, 2017, Hunter Biden texted Bobulinski, “No matter what it will need to be a US company at some level in order for us to make bids on federal and state-funded projects. Also, We don’t want to have to register as foreign agents under the FCPA which is much more expansive than people who should know choose not to know.” The very next day after the text was sent, May 2, 2017, Hunter arranged for a meeting in Los Angeles with Bobulinski, James Biden and Joe Biden.

Hunter Biden’s text went on to say, “James has very particular opinions about this so I would ask him about the foreign entity. Regardless, we should have a DE come called CEFC America…” At a press conference on Thursday, Bobulinski recognized the occurrence of the meeting and said it lasted an hour. In that hour, the entire meeting, “the Biden’s family business plans with the Chinese” was discussed. Bobulinski said of father Joe Biden that he was “plainly familiar” with the plans discussed at the meeting “at a high level.”

Biden’s reference to FCPA is believed to be the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. CEFC China Energy is “a Chinese conglomerate whose chairman had links to the communist regime in Beijing” according to the DCNF. Additionally, the DCNF acknowledges “Biden did not explain in the messages why he thought the venture with CEFC would violate FARA or FCPA without the buffer of a U.S. shell company.”

At least he was smart enough to use the loopholes in the law to avoid officially breaking the law.

The article concludes:

Bobulinski has provided emails, text messages and business records to the Senate Homeland Security Committee and even met with the FBI on Thursday. Information provided showed “Bobulinski, Hunter Biden, James Biden and two other partners, James Gilliar and Rob Walker, went on to form companies called SinoHawk and Oneida Holdings to partner with CEFC.” Furthermore, the information shows Oneida Holdings was formed only a mere three weeks after the big meeting, on May 22, 2017.

Where is the FBI that so meticulously combed through every scrap of information they could find on President Trump and his associates?

Searching For Transparency

Gregg Jarrett has been one of the few people who has investigated the Obama spy scandal from the beginning. Everything he was saying three years ago has turned out to be true. He posted an article on his website today about some recent comments from Representative Devin Nunes.

The article reports:

Representative Devin Nunes, a Republican from California and top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has suggested a drastic idea to hold U.S. intelligence agencies accountable.  Specifically, for not turning over information regarding their intel on then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.

In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Rep. Nunes said “every Republican senator and member of Congress should be saying…we want every damn bit of evidence that every intelligence agency has or it’s maybe time to shut those agencies down.”

Rep. Nunes’s comments come after the release of a shocking memo last week from John Ratcliffe. Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, released through the Senate Judiciary Committee a memo which said “U.S. intelligence agencies obtained intercepted Russian intelligence agencies discussing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s authorization of a plan to link President Donald Trump to the Kremlin’s hacking efforts” reports the Daily Caller.

In the memo, Ratcliffe quoted a U.S. intelligence community investigative referral to the FBI which mentions the “approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server.”

The key paragraph in the article states:

Nunes’ concerns stem from the fact that a lot of information on the matter is still classified, therefore he and other lawmakers cannot discuss it publicly. Nunes says he has seen those pieces of intelligence which are “definitely smoking guns” that “definitely needs to be made available to the American public.”

We need to know the truth before the election. Voters also need to understand that the misuse of the federal government to spy on political opponents will continue if the people responsible for it in 2015 and 2016 are not held accountable. Do you want to live in a country where a political party uses the instruments of government against its citizens? That is what will happen if the Democrats gain control of the government in November.

Undoing The Spin

The Gregg Jarrett website posted an article today about an attempt to set the record straight about recent events in Detroit. The mainstream media has pushed the narrative that law enforcement officers are the problem–not the solution.

The article notes the current narrative:

Unfortunately, with the contention between protesters and law enforcement in other cities such as Portland, New York City and Minneapolis, federal agencies face a public relations battle. Vandals, protesters and many Democratic leaders are painting a public image of police and federal agents as agitators.

The article reports the truth:

U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider wants the record set straight on federal agent presence in Detroit. Schneider declared anyone saying federal agents are being used to handle or interfere with protests is “irresponsible rhetoric” and they are in fact helping to combat the increase in violent crimes.

“The United States Department of Justice will not sit on the sidelines while murderers spread violence in our neighborhoods,” said Schneider. The Associated Press reported that Schneider discussed “the federal officers sent to Detroit have been assigned to capture fugitives, address illegal gun possession and break up drug trafficking, among other tasks.”

…Schneider also alluded to the nonsensical public opinion, saying,” Federal agents have been in Detroit for decades. Some of what we are doing is no different than from what I did as an assistant United States attorney years ago when my bosses were Eric Holder and President Barack Obama” said Schneider was appointed U.S. attorney by President Trump. Likely the mainstream media won’t repeat that information, furthering the false narrative that federal agents are being sent into cities to disrupt protests and heighten tensions.

These riots are not isolated incidents. Someone is financing and planning them. The ultimate solution is to find the person funding the unrest, put them in jail, and cut off the funding.

Where Some Of The Money Would Come From

Gregg Jarrett posted an article today which explains how Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders would pay for healthcare for people who are in America illegally.

The article reports:

Senator Warren and Senator Sanders have both publicly supported the dismantling of the United States healthcare system and want to rebuild it as a socialized government-run system. In this new system, illegal aliens would also be entitled to taxpayer-funded healthcare. Senator Sanders has admitted that to accomplish this, taxes on the middle class would need to increase. Senator Warren has refused to say how she plans to pay for such an expensive and expansive healthcare system.

The Washington Post interviewed a few “external economic policy advisers” to see what ideas they might be pitching to Senator Warren’s campaign. One advisor by the name of Robert Pollin suggested taking away money from the Department of Veterans Affairs and diverting it to a single-payer system.

“Robert Pollin, a left-leaning economist at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst who has worked with the Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) teams, said he believes two-thirds of the single-payer fund can be raised by redirecting existing public health-care spending from Medicare, Medicaid and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Pollin refused to discuss any details related to his conversations with Warren’s campaign.” – The Washington Post

So money will be taken away from the Department of Veterans Affairs to pay for healthcare for people who are in America illegally.

The article concludes:

Not only is Mr. Pollin suggesting that funds intended for the healthcare of America’s bravest be diverted to this new system, but also Medicaid and Medicare funds. This means that the government entities that are meant for the underprivileged, handicap, and elderly will lose funding. Even with redirecting all of these funds Mr. Pollin admits that they would need to raise an additional 600 billion dollars.

“Pollin suggests that the remaining third be raised by a $600 billion annual ‘gross-receipts’ tax on businesses.”

This means that in effect, taxes will go up on all citizens. If stealing money from the health plans of American veterans is their best solution, the American people will reject their radical ideas and reelect President Trump.

I hope so.
