California Maneuvering to Make Bigger Impact on 2020 Election Than Any Election Before

As with any election cycle, the coming contest in 2020 will undoubtedly bring with it a plethora of discussion regarding the impact that our current electoral procedure has had on our nation.

The Electoral College has long been a sticking point for many, often on the losing side of an election, with opponents openly suggesting that this system should be eliminated for a simpler, popular vote system.

Again, it should be reiterated that it is quite easy to predict who will muster this argument in the wake of any election.  Just look to see who is licking their wounds.

Some states, however, are embracing the opportunities inherent within the system, and attempting to garner more power for themselves.  California is the latest.

Early voting in California’s primary will overlap with the traditional early nominating contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. That could force the sprawling field of Democrats to navigate those states as well as California’s notoriously complex landscape, where campaigning is done through paid political ads.

Strategists estimate it could cost at least $5 million for a candidate to compete in California, an amount that could be prohibitive for all but the best-funded contenders. Nascent campaigns are asking themselves if they should gamble on California.

“Everyone’s going to play in Iowa, everyone’s going to go to New Hampshire,” said Ben Tulchin, a San Francisco-based pollster who worked for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential bid. “But there are only 3-4 of the top-tier candidates who will compete in California.”

The nation’s biggest and second-most-diverse state has long complained about being effectively shut out of the presidential nominating process because its primary usually comes months after the initial four contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill moving the state’s primary up to the earliest date permissible.

California, much like New York State, is politically ruled by the liberal left due to their population density in coastal cities.

In both states, talks of secession or splitting of the territories has been considered in the past, but no legislation has yet to advance to a vote.

George Soros Drops $1M to Defund Police During Major Crimewave

Wow.

George Soros

If you were to ask around in the farther-flung corners of the conservative internet, you’d not find much high praise for George Soros. The liberal billionaire has been spending much of his time, (and wealth), bullying the sociopolitical system into leaning to the left, and he hasn’t been trying to hide it at all.  This has made him a bit of a boogeyman within conservative circles, and rightly so. His latest bit of “philanthropy” appears to fall right in line with his previous maneuvers. Liberal mega-donor George Soros has directed $1 million to an activist group attempting to defund the police as violent crime surges in major urban centers across the nation. Soros sent the million dollars via his Color Of Change PAC on May 14, according to Federal Election Commission files obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The organization describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization” and actively engages in efforts to defund police departments such as spreading an online petition calling for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people.” The group also backed a push by the Milwaukee City Council to defund the police. And they aren’t mincing their words. “Policing is a violent institution that must end,” the group’s president wrote in a statement supporting the move. “We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable. Defunding the police allows for this vision.” The move comes amid a massive crime spike in liberal cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.
