    Democratic California
    .
    To show you how bad it’s getting out there, just take the cost of a U-Haul from CA to Texas, it costs $1,400 for a family to move there and from Texas to CA, it only costs $400 for a family to move there.
    .
    You ask why is that happening, the U-Haul company can’t get enough trucks in CA to rent to these families who are leaving and other rental agencies are reaping the profits from all of these families leaving CA.

    The Democratic Presidential hopefuls concerning the costs of college
    .
    Every time to hear a Democratic Presidential hopeful talking concerning the costs of college they say it should be covered by the Government.
    .
    Now here’s the catch, seeing how high the costs of college are now, just think what it will be if these colleges can now charge the government for all of these students college costs.
    .
    And where do you think all of those Millions if not Billions are going to come from? It will come from the taxes that you and I pay each year.
    .
    And what do you think these college students will do if they have a free ride in college, they will say, hay, why not continue my time in college to as many years that they can get away with.

    Democrats Introduce Bill Allowing Shooting Victims To Sue Gun Industry
    .
    House and Senate Democrats introduced legislation Tuesday they say will allow victims of gun violence to have their day in court.
    .
    The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act aims to repeal federal protections blocking firearm and ammunition manufacturers, dealers and trade groups from most civil lawsuits when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime.
    .
    Those protections date to 2005, with the passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.
    .
    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., one of the bill's co-sponsors, said since PLCAA became law, state and federal courts have "dismissed numerous cases against the gun industry," adding that other cases were likely not brought at all.
    .
    Schiff, surrounded by members of gun violence prevention groups including Moms Demand Action, Brady and March For Our Lives, said the purpose of the legislation was to "correct the error Congress made" nearly a decade and a half ago.
    .
    "Responsible actors in the gun industry don't need this limitation on liability. And the irresponsible ones don't deserve it," Schiff told reporters at the announcement of the bill.
    .
    PLCAA was signed into law by then-President George W. Bush and championed by the gun industry, including the National Rifle Association.
    .
    Lawrence Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a firearms trade association, told NPR his organization "will certainly oppose this legislation." He called the bill to repeal PLCAA "fundamentally unfair."
    .
    "You would no more charge or blame Ford or General Motors for drunk driving accidents," Keane said, adding that the current law is "working exactly how Congress intended it."
    .
    Keane and other supporters of the current law say it was passed as a way to ensure that manufacturers, dealers and distributors had protections from what they call "frivolous" lawsuits intended to bankrupt the gun industry.
    .
    "All we're doing through this proposal is giving victims of gun violence their day in court," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., a co-sponsor of the Senate version of the bill. "Every other industry has to pay punitive damages if it intentionally and purposefully violates [a] standard of care" toward the community.
    .
    "That will provide a powerful incentive as it has done in tobacco, in automobiles, in pharmaceutical drugs, for safer products," Blumenthal added.
    .
    In March, the Connecticut Supreme Court overturned a lower court decision, ruling that Remington Arms could be sued under state law by the families of victims from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
    .
    The court said that Remington, the manufacturer of the rifle that was used in the 2012 attacks in Newtown, Conn., could be sued on the basis of how the company marketed the military-style weapon to civilians.
    .
    Blumenthal on Tuesday called it a "narrow victory for the Sandy Hook victims," adding that it allows families to "go back to the trial court and seek to prove their case. It was by no means a total victory for them."
    .
    The effort to repeal PLCAA by Democrats on Capitol Hill is not new.
    .
    Schiff first introduced the measure in 2013, and it has been reintroduced at least two other times without gaining traction.
    .
    Democratic lawmakers said momentum is now on their side, pointing to polling that shows 90% of Americans support universal background checks.
    .
    Supporters of the new PLCAA repeal also say that the NRA is in a far weaker position now than it was in 2005 because of recent allegations of financial mismanagement; investigations into the group, including one by the attorney general of New York; and inquiries by House Democrats looking into links between NRA officials and individuals with ties to Russia.
    .
    As with the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 and the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, this new bill faces steep odds since the Senate, controlled by Republicans, has shown no appetite for taking up gun control legislation.
    .
    "It is a new day in Congress," said Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., who highlighted that Wednesday is the third anniversary of the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, where 49 people and the shooter died.
    .
    "We will not stop, regardless of the Senate majority leader [Mitch McConnell R-Ky.] ignoring the pleas of the American people."

    BERNIE’S BIG PLAN: Sanders Says His Healthcare Proposal Will ‘Absolutely’ Cover ALL Illegal Immigrants.
    .
    Vermont Senator and far-left presidential candidate Bernie Sanders confirmed this week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
    .
    Vermont Senator and far-left presidential candidate Bernie Sanders confirmed this week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
    .
    “We will organize the American people around the concept that all people in this country have the right to health care, and at the end of the day, we are going to win that struggle,” said Sanders during a recent speech.
    .
    “Senator, would you include the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America?” asked the moderator.
    .
    “Absolutely. When I talk about health care being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings,” he fired-back.
    .
    Bernie Sanders’ campaign released a new Democratic Socialist ‘Economic Bill of Rights’ weeks ago; saying all Americans should be provided with healthcare, education, a ‘good job,’ housing, secure retirement, and more.
    .
    “We need a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights:
    – The right to health care
    – The right to education
    – The right to a good job
    – The right to affordable housing
    – The right to a secure retirement
    – The right to a clean environment#DemocraticSocialism,” posted Josh Miller-Lewis, Sanders’ Digital Communications Director.
    .
    Sanders confirmed earlier this week that no one in America will be able to opt-out of his new $32 trillion healthcare plan.
    .
    Sanders was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked if satisfied Americans can choose to remain with their current healthcare provider.
    .
    “If I want to, can I opt out?” asked the interviewer.
    .
    “No,” Sanders said immediately. “It’s like social security. It’s like Medicare right now. It’s just an expansion of Medicare.”
    .

    My Thoughts:
    .
    Sander’s big old bleeding liberal socialist heart shows just how stupid he is. What you don’t hear him say is; who’s going to pay for all of this, but we all know it’s going to be us tax payers in the long run, but Bernie will never say that up front.

    SERIOUSLY? AOC, Who Makes $174,000 Per Year, Wants YOU to Pay-Off Her Student Loans
    .
    Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -who earns $174,000 per year as a US Representative- now wants American workers to pay off her student loan debt; saying she has a “personal stake” in her campaign to cancel education loans to millions of Americans.
    .
    “I have to disclose my personal stake in this fight. Because I have student loans too. I think it’s so funny that a year ago I was waiting tables in a restaurant. It was literally easier to become the youngest woman in American history to be elected to Congress than it is to pay off my student loan debt,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
    .
    “What a beautiful day to liberate future generations from the scourge of for-profit education, and for-profit student loan debt as well… This is about our entire economy,” she added.
    .
    Left-wing Senator Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest proposal to radically transform the country’s education system Monday; calling for the creation of free public colleges and the cancellation of nearly all student loan debt.
    .
    “We got into this crisis because state governments and the federal government decided that instead of treating higher education like our public school system — free and accessible to all Americans — they’d rather cut taxes for billionaires and giant corporations and offload the cost of higher education onto students and their families,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
    .
    “The first step in addressing this crisis is to deal head-on with the outstanding debt that is weighing down millions of families and should never have been required in the first place. That’s why I’m calling for something truly transformational — the cancellation of up to $50,000 in student loan debt for 42 million Americans,” she adds.
    .
    “Public college education is like a public K-12 education — a basic public good that should be available to everyone with free tuition and zero debt at graduation. My plan for universal free college will give every American the opportunity to attend a two-year or four-year public college without paying a dime in tuition or fees,” concludes Warren.
    .
    Warren has routinely vowed to “remake” the American economy on the campaign trail in recent weeks.
    .
    “As the 23 candidates seeking the Democratic nomination struggle to distinguish themselves, Senator Elizabeth Warren has set herself apart with a series of sweeping proposals that would significantly remake the American economy, covering everything from tax policy to student debt relief and offering a detailed portrait of what her presidency might look like,” reports the New York Times.

    Democratic congresswoman secretly sending staff into Mexico to coach asylum-seekers
    .
    A Democratic congresswoman is sending staff to Mexico’s northern border town of Ciudad Juárez to find migrants returned from El Paso, Texas, under the “remain in Mexico” policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them to return to the U.S.
    .
    The National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several Customs and Border Protection personnel told the Washington Examiner aides to Rep. Veronica Escobar, who took over 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s district, and the local Catholic diocese have interviewed thousands of migrants in Juarez over the past few weeks to find cases where Department of Homeland Security officials may have wrongly returned people.
    .
    “What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going … to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol,” said one senior union official, who shared evidence with the Washington Examiner from concerned CBP managers and rank-and-file members. Those documents have been held to protect identities.
    .
    Under the bilateral Migration Protection Protocols, or “Remain in Mexico” policy, anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish because they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge decides their asylum claim. A Democratic politician's aides reescorting people back to the port are telling officers the Central American individual with them cannot speak Spanish despite their having communicated in it days earlier, CBP officials said.
    .
    “What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues," the union representative said.
    .
    Escobar's team has sought interviews with 6,000 people who were returned last month, according to one CBP official. The union learned from an intelligence unit within CBP that those doing the interviews are wearing recording devices during the interviews to tape conversations and possibly listen back later.
    .
    “They went through and interviewed everybody, cherry-picked them, brought them back, and now are using them as tag lines. They’re going over there and manufacturing a lot of these issues,” said the union official.
    .
    All three border officials worried the interviews might be used to suggest the Border Patrol is wrongfully turning away a large number of asylum-seekers.
    .
    “We had finally found a happy medium ‘cause we always get crapped on when it comes to immigration laws, and then they’re finding loopholes to bring them back,” the second official said.
    .
    Mark H. Metcalf, a former federal immigration judge during the George W. Bush administration, said the involvement of Escobar's office was likely "more of a stunt than a genuine threat to the integrity of the process."
    .
    "She's trying to obviously say these people have been wrongly denied their claims and they're waiting when they shouldn't be," said Metcalf.
    .
    However, he said a criminal case would exist if Escobar were found to be complicit in an effort to perpetrate a fraud, which would have to include knowingly injecting false statements during interviews, follow-up conversations, and documents presented to U.S. officials.
    .
    A Department of Homeland Security official aware of the situation said Democrats, nonprofit organizations, and 2020 hopefuls "are furious that these migrants" are not permitted to "await their court dates in the U.S., where they have the opportunity to disappear and slip into the interior never to be seen again."

    Dems Want Another Firearm Device Banned, And It’s All Based On Hollywood Hype
    .
    Suppressors aren’t particularly common. You can’t go out and pick one up at your local gun store on a whim. They’re tightly controlled and somewhat difficult to obtain.
    .
    In fact, they’re rarely used in criminal activity at all, and not because they’re tightly controlled. The truth is, they’re also easy to manufacture, which means criminals who wanted them could easily obtain/make them.
    .
    However, the Virginia Beach shooter used a suppressor, and now Democrats are scrambling to ban the devices. They’re not doing it based on what actually happened, either, but what the Hollywood version of a suppressor is like.
    .
    Cover your ears. You’re not going to want to hear this. Elected officials are attempting to set national firearms policy based on spy fiction movies instead of facts.
    .
    U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, D-New Jersey, introduced the Help Empower Americans to Respond (HEAR) Act, that would ban the sale, possession and confiscate firearm suppressors. Menendez said the tragic Virginia Beach murders spurred his ban proposal, claiming suppressors masked the sound of gunfire like what is commonly portrayed in James Bond movies. Menendez once again demonstrates his anti-gun agenda instead of pursuing policies that add to the public’s safety.
    .
    Menendez’s bill ignores not just scientific facts but eyewitness accounts of the Virginia Beach tragedy.
    .
    The murderer committed his crimes using two legally purchased firearms, only one of which was fitted with a legally purchased suppressor. Menendez referenced only a single handgun with a suppressor, overlooking police accounts of the other handgun. He also claims that unsuppressed firearms would have saved more lives by alerting more to the danger, but that contrasts with the account of Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera. He explained responding police officers followed the sound of gunfire to locate and eventually neutralize the murderer.
    .
    In other words, they could actually hear the gunfire.
    .
    The truth is that suppressors don’t actually silence the weapon. There’s still plenty of noise to be heard. It simply reduces that noise to a level where it’s less likely to cause hearing damage.
    .
    Yet the Hollywood version makes the tiniest of sounds, something you don’t really even notice if you’re a character in the movie or show. For most people, that’s their only exposure to a suppressor. And despite knowing on some level that Hollywood isn’t reality, they still seem to buy into the notion that suppressors eliminate all the sound.
    .
    Menendez’s bill is predicated on that ignorance. As noted in the above quote, it also ignores reports of law enforcement officers who distinctly heard gunfire.
    .
    The truth is, anti-gun Democrats like Menendez don’t like the idea of ordinary Americans having anything that they can use to defend themselves. Suppressors are useful for those looking at home defense since it reduces the decibels of a gunshot to tolerable levels, something that’s incredibly good when you’re forced to discharge your weapon inside your home. I, for one, would rather my wife and daughter not go deaf on top of dealing with the trauma of someone having illegally entered our home.
    .
    Focusing on suppressors ignores the reality of what happened in Virginia Beach. That’s something people like Menendez are quite good at.

    FBI arrests ex-Puerto Rico officials for disaster aid-funded payoffs
    .
    The FBI has arrested two former Puerto Rico officials for funneling disaster aid payments to politically connected contractors.
    .
    The Wednesday arrests have prompted concern on Capitol Hill that the island’s corruption will blunt the effectiveness of a recently passed disaster aid bill. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., has called for Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló's resignation, according to the Washington Post.
    .
    The FBI indictment charges Puerto Rico's former Education Secretary Julia Keleher, former Health Insurance Agency Chief Ángela Ávila-Marrero, and four others with crimes related to grifting U.S. disaster aid. Keleher and Ávila-Marrero both served in Rosselló's administration before leaving in April and June, respectively.
    .
    Rosselló himself is not under investigation. Grijalva is the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, which is overseeing the recovery effort on the island from Hurricane Maria in 2017.
    .
    "We've crossed that crucible now," Grijalva said. "The restoration of accountability is so key going forward."
    .
    The arrests come weeks after Congress passed a $19 billion disaster aid bill to the island that is still struggling after the September 2017 hurricane severely damaged the island's infrastructure and power grid.
    .
    The bill, considered a victory for Democrats at the time, provided much more funding for Puerto Rico than President Trump wanted. Trump and several House Republicans had stalled the bill for weeks.
    .
    Trump said Washington had already supplied the U.S. territory with plenty of aid. House conservatives resisted what they saw as an attempt by House Democrats to pass a large funding bill without debate.
    .
    Trump criticized Puerto Rico's political leaders as "incompetent or corrupt" in April while protesting Democrats' calls to provide more funding for the territory.
