Video: Criminals Caught Stealing From Store Shelves In Broad Daylight Thanks to California Law

This is what happens when certain ‘leaders’ are elected…

It’s no secret that the Golden State has become a cesspool of liberal nonsense. But what is to be expected when citizens continually put the likes of Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi in office? Check this out, via Fox News:

SAN FRANCISCO – In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco’s busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city’s high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.

The incident wasn’t a one-off. These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more “serious” crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.

WATCH:

Proposition 47 is seen by critics as one of California’s biggest blunders. Supported by the state Democratic Party and championed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the referendum was passed by a wide margin in 2014. The idea behind it was to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to focus on violent offenders.

WATCH:

More Newsom…

Most people might not have figured that California could become an even larger dumpster fire when Gavin Newsom took over as governor for Jerry Brown. But Gavin Newsom is proving them wrong.

Things can get much worse in the Golden State – and have. They are banning and taxing at an extraordinary rate.

Not only did Cali cut off power to over one million residents to “prevent” wildfires (and at least person person has died because of it), but the liberal overlords of the state have decided to pay college athletes, demand colleges carry abortion drugs, and now they’re banning fur.

Is this what people were demanding? What about the illegal alien problem? Or the homeless population problem? The ridiculously high rent? The out-of-control gas prices?

Shouldn’t those issues be addressed first?

Let’s face it, people. California politicians honestly believe they know what you need better than you do.

Don’t fight it. Just move. Go to Arizona or Texas. Then and only then, will California will change.

Capitol Riot Investigation: Official Commanded Officer to Target Anti-Trump Individuals

The complex investigation into the Capitol riots continues to surprise us.

Published

on

There is still a great deal that we don’t know about the events of January 6th, as an enormous investigation into the incident continues to uncover terrifying new angles in the case. The FBI has a complex and gargantuan task ahead of them, as they attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. Thousands of hours of social media must be pored over still, and there are undoubtedly still arrests yet to be made.  Then will come the trials, which could, in turn, ignite new probes and arrests still. One of the most worrisome parts of the probe has come at the expense of the Capitol Police, who were seen on camera clearly giving a wide berth to a deadly mob.  Some officers were even seen opening barricades for the berserkers, while others took selfies with them. Now, an unbelievable bit of audio recorded during the attack is raising major concerns. A Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who described what she said were details of an internal investigation conducted in the aftermath of the mob attack. Lofgren (D-Calif.) revealed the finding while she questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee Wednesday to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack. Lofgren, who chairs the panel, described the findings as she asked him whether he had read the internal investigation reports. Lofgren said the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility was reviewing information that a radio transmission to “all outside units’ attention” that they should not be “looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd,” according to Lofgren. She added they were “only looking for any anti-Trump.” There…

Thus Far in 2021, Big Tech Has Cracked Down on Free Speech More than Ever Before

Only four months into this year, an analysis finds that Big Tech has worked to eliminate free speech more than ever before.

Only four months into this year, an analysis finds that Big Tech has worked to eliminate free speech more than ever before. An analysis of these fascist efforts to end free speech on the Internet awarded Big Tech a bit fat “F” for its un-American efforts to aid and abet the far-left. Per the Media Research Center: At least 10 separate tech platforms silenced then-sitting President of the United States Donald Trump over the speech he gave in Washington, D.C. the day of the Capitol riot. Both Google and Apple pulled Parler from their app stores. Amazon Web Services also cancelled its contract with Parler, shutting the burgeoning social media site down for more than five weeks. Google removed LifeSiteNews from its advertising programs, and YouTube shut down its channel. YouTube demonetized Steven Crowder’s channels. Amazon removed Ryan T. Anderson’s book examining transgender ideology, and it also removed a Clarence Thomas documentary while continuing to sell at least 270 hate items. That consistent assault on free speech makes 2021 an ideal time to track the biases and failures of Big Tech. Starting with this quarter and going forward every three months, the Media Research Center’s Free Speech America operation will grade the top Big Tech companies, including social media, search media and others that form the backbone of our online lives. This quarter, Big Tech earned a collective “F.” Every one of the Big Tech companies reviewed got an “F” in free speech. That’s simply appalling. The quarter began with unparalleled restriction of the president of the United States. It was unquestionably the low point for online freedom since the creation of the internet. The MRC added its report card: The MRC went on in its report to detail all the reasons why each company in the graph above have…
