California uses ‘Racism’ To Justify Prostitution-Friendly Bill

Published

Prostitution

Liberal California is at it again, blaming “racism” as a means to justify a terrible law. The new law is aimed at decriminalizing loitering with the intent to work as a prostitute. Bill supporters say the new law is necessary because the current law targets minorities.

Biz Pac Review reports “proponents say that minorities and transgender people are disproportionately targeted for enforcement of current loitering laws because of how they are dressed.”

Those who oppose the new law worry that it drastically hinders the ability for law enforcement to intervene and help sex trafficking victims. The bill eventually passed the California Assembly after a fierce debate with a 41-26 win, with moderate Democrats siding with Republicans against the bill.

The bill also allows convictions to be overturned for those who have a prior conviction for loitering with intent to work as a prostitute, and their records for the case sealed. Democrat Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan supports the bill because the current law was allegedly “criminalizing the victims and leaving them with criminal records that create further barriers to seeking employment, housing and relief.”

A spokeswoman for the bill’s author, State Senator Scott Wiener, told the Sacramento Bee:

“Holding the bill at the Senate desk is simply a temporary delay. It provides the senator and our coalition more time to make the case about why this civil rights bill is good policy that should be signed into law and why this discriminatory loitering crime goes against California values and needs to be repealed.”

“[arresting people who] look like sex workers is discriminatory and wrong, and it endangers sex workers and trans people of color. Anti-LGTBQ and racist loitering laws need to go. Sex workers, LGBTQ people, and people of color deserve to be safe on our streets.”

 “For me, when the unintended consequence is making it more difficult to protect victims of child trafficking, even if it’s just a possibility, that’s not something I can support,” said Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris, a Democrat who does not support the bill.

The bill now awaits the California Senate, before being sent to the governor’s office in January. Depending on who wins the election attempting to recall current Governor Gavin Newsom, could determine the ultimate success or failure of the bill.

    That’s why I fled California in 2008, as soon as I could get out.
    Soon nothing but super poor and super rich. That’s what they want.

Two Illegal Immigrants Arrested For Allegedly Plotting July 4 Mass Shooting

Published

Two illegal immigrants in Virginia have been arrested for allegedly plotting a mass shooting on a July 4 celebration after a “hero citizen” overheard a conversation about the plot and called police.

“A hero citizen picked up the phone and overheard a conversation there was a mass shooting being planned here in the city of Richmond, Virginia,” Richmond Chief of Police Gerald Smith said Wednesday.

“Two illegal immigrants, 52-year-old Julio Alvarado-Dubon and 38-year-old Rolman Balacarcel, were arrested and charged with being a non-U.S. citizens in possession of a gun after police uncovered a plot that the duo planned a mass shooting at Richmond’s July 4 celebration Monday,” Fox News reported. “Smith said that police investigated Alvarado-Dubon based on a tip to police by someone he would only refer to as a ‘hero citizen.’ Police investigated the claims and found Alvarado-Dubon was in possession of two rifles, one handgun, and 223 rounds of ammunition. He was arrested on July 1, while Balacarcel was placed under surveillance and eventually arrested on the same charges on Tuesday.”

Smith also addressed reports that one of the suspects has been deported several times but continued to illegally reenter the United States, saying it was “frustrating” that a person could repeatedly break the law and still be able to plan out a mass murder.

The news comes as illegal immigration has reached the highest level on record with nearly 240,000 migrants being encountered by border officials in May.

“There were an unprecedented 239,416 migrant encounters at the Southern border in May, CBP reports. This is the highest monthly total in DHS history, beating the record that was set the month before in April w/ 234,088,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin wrote on Twitter.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.
