CA Governor Newsom Creates Task Force To ‘Study’ Reparations For Descendants Of Slaves

In a bizarre attempt to appease his liberal voters, Newsom’s law will “research” the issue, but does not specify any amount of restitution to be given

Is California Governor Gavin Newsom panicking? The Democratic governor just Wednesday signed a law with the sole purpose of focusing on reparations for the descendants of slaves. In a bold move making the state the first of its kind, “the new law mandates the formation of a nine-member task force to research the issue, with members appointed by the governor and the state legislature” reports National Review.

The nine-member task force will “be asked to make recommendations for how reparations could be provided, such as through compensation or restitution” reports the Sacramento Bee. “The task force can also make recommendations on eliminating state laws and policies that perpetuate discrimination and on issuing a formal apology ‘for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants” the bill states.

A bizarre attempt to appease his liberal voters, Newsom’s law will “research” the issue, but does not specify any amount of restitution to be given. Newsom said of the new mandate, “Advancing this cause where it’s not just a question on a questionnaire for a candidate running for office but actually taking shape here, that’s a meaningful moment” which is nothing more than a confusing string of words.

Despite leading the way in the reparations movement, this makes California nothing more than the first state to study potential reparations. National Review explains California’s history: “California was incorporated into the U.S. as a free state in 1850. However, in 1852 the state legislature passed a law allowing white slaveowners to bring slaves to work in California, as long as they eventually returned the slaves to southern states where slavery was legal. Slavery was legally abolished throughout the U.S. with the ratification of the 13 Amendment 1865.”

The Sacramento Bee reports that the task force will be “asked to compile a report on the effects of slavery and systemic discrimination – historic and current – on Black Californians and recommend appropriate ways to educate the public of those effects.” Findings shall be delivered “no later than June 2022.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.

It’s Raining Lawsuits on Jussie Smollett; City of Chicago and Nigerian Brothers Suing Actor

The City of Chicago has confirmed it will be suing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett. The lawsuit will seek the $130,106.15 “to cover an overtime tab racked up by dozens of officers tasked with investigating Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of an attack”, reports Daily Mail UK.

According to the legal filing, the Chicago Department came to the conclusion to pursue the lawsuit after over two dozen cops spent weeks investigating the fake attack and logged 1,836 hours of overtime as a result.

Daily Mail also noted the Osundairo brothers who were hired by Smollett to stage his attack, plan to continue with their own lawsuit against Smollett’s legal team. According to the Daily Mail, “they’re seeking undisclosed damages after claiming their careers and reputations were damaged in the high-profile hoax.”

After the initial set of charges were dropped against the brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, they sued Smollett’s attorneys in April 2019, claiming their careers and reputations were damaged. “They claimed in the defamation lawsuit against lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian that they were maliciously portrayed as liars in the public” reports Daily Mail.

The lawsuit specifically references how Smollett’s attorneys suggested the brothers ‘might have been wearing white face’ when they attacked him and inferred that Abel had a sexual relationship with Smollett. Abel’s home country of Nigeria prohibits homosexuality. ‘Same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria, which can result in 14 years of imprisonment…if the accused is married the punishment is death by stoning.’

Therefore, Ms. Glandian’s statements about the brother being a homosexual ‘endangers him and the lives of his Nigerian family’ the lawsuit stated. The brothers’ lawsuit was stayed by a federal judge until the criminal proceedings for Smollett are completed. The brothers’ legal team is expected to file an update to the court by February 2.

Smollett, 39, was just convicted on five counts of disorderly conduct for faking his own attack and now faces jail time. “His sentencing date has not yet been set but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.”
