California Governor Plans To Halt Executions By End-Run Around The Will Of The Voters

California Governor Gavin Newsom is halting the execution of more than 700 condemned inmates on the nation’s largest death row for at least as long as he’s governor.

The Democrat governor’s office told The Associated Press he will issue an executive order Wednesday granting a reprieve to every condemned inmate.

Imagine how the families of the victims of the condemned prisoners will take this news.  They are now victimized a second time by the very man they more-than-likely voted for governor.

Newsom is also withdrawing the lethal injection regulations, and he’s shutting down the execution chamber at San Quentin State Prison, which has never been used because California hasn’t executed anyone since 2006.

Los Angeles County alone had 260 homicides in 2014, which comes to 6.7 per 100,000.  One is too many in my book.

California voters have supported the death penalty, and in 2016 they voted to speed up the process.  An average of 15 years on death row doesn’t seem like a penalty for the victim’s family and friends, many of whom will have died in that time and never lived to see justice for the murder of their loved one.

Newsom has made the claim that he can act unilaterally since he is not commuting anyone’s sentence, an act which requires in many cases to rely on the agreement of the state Supreme Court. What I ask liberals to do is think to yourself, what if Trump did that?  The anger that will go through your mind shouldn’t be diluted all because a Democrat governor of California is doing it.

There are 737 death row inmates in California right now, the oldest case going back to 1978.  Forty-one years the taxpayers of California have had to pay for that inmate, and we know that death row inmates cost a lot more to house than general population prisoners.

Newsom knows his move will be met with fierce political opposition.

The LA County that Association of Deputy District Attorneys argued Newsom is playing an end-run around the will of California voters who have supported the death penalty in the past.  He is a Democrat, and Democrats do what is politically advantageous to them.  Yes, in a state like California a Democrat coming out against the death penalty will score political points with the state’s progressive base, of which there are many in California.

“The voters of the State of California support the death penalty,” said association president Michele Hanisee. “That is powerfully demonstrated by their approval of Proposition 66 in 2016 to ensure the death penalty is implemented, and their rejection of measures to end the death penalty in 2016 and 2006. Governor Newsom, who supported the failed initiative to end the death penalty in 2006, is usurping the express will of California voters and substituting his personal preferences via this hasty and ill-considered moratorium on the death penalty.”

President Trump chimed in on Newsom’s plans.

“Defying voters, the Governor of California will halt all death penalty executions of 737 stone cold killers. Friends and families of the always forgotten VICTIMS are not thrilled, and neither am I!”

Many liberals are arguing that Pro-Life advocates shouldn’t have a problem with this, and that’s mainly because, well, they’re liberals and can not comprehend the difference of executing an innocent baby and executing a stone-cold killer who took the life of an innocent person.

For anti-death penalty advocates who claim it doesn’t act as a deterrent, I say having to wait an average of 15 years for justice wouldn’t work as a deterrent for any crime, which is why the voters of California sent a message that they want to death penalty processed sped up.

Transcripts: McCabe, Not Mueller, Fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok From Special Counsel Team

Transcripts of testimony that were recently released are causing all kinds of havoc in the D.C. swamp.  One set of transcripts shows fired and disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe testified that he was the one who “made the decision” to fire the disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok from the Mueller team, and not Robert Mueller himself.

“Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe claimed he ‘made the decision’ to remove Peter Strzok from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017 after a series of anti-Trump text messages surfaced between the former FBI special agent and another official with whom he was romantically involved,” Fox News reports.

“It was long thought that Mueller had Strzok removed after the texts between him and Lisa Page were uncovered. But McCabe’s apparent role was revealed in a newly released transcript from his House Judiciary Committee interview on Dec. 21, 2017,” the article added.

Then why didn’t Mueller say this himself publicly?  He had to have known it was big news at the time when the story broke that Strzok had been removed from the team over the content of newly discovered text messages between Strzok and his lover (who was not his wife) former FBI attorney Lisa Page.  Why did Mueller allow the falsehood to go on for so long?  Was it because it made him look good in the eyes of the public?  When you are perpetrating a fraud, such as was the whole Trump-Russia collusion investigation, you’ll take anything that makes you look good.

“They said they had a very important matter for me to review and they needed me to come across the street and talk to them that day, which was unusual,” McCabe told lawmakers in July 2017. “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.”

McCabe lied back in March when he claimed that the phony Steele dossier was “accurately represented” when it was used to apply for a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

“I do believe that we adequately notified the FISA Court of the information we were using, and what we thought of the information,” McCabe said over the weekend.

“I think everyone was satisfied that we had represented that accurately and adequately in the package,” he added. “I do think we represented it adequately”

Yeah, and I’m Mary, Queen of Scots.

McCabe was fired from the FBI in March last year, only days before he was scheduled to retire.  He has claimed that he was fired because of the Trump administration’s ongoing war with the FBI.  In reality, McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, after his firing was recommended by both the Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility, because he leaked to the Washington Post, and he lied to Congress under oath when he denied that he leaked to the Washington Post.  When you join the FBI, the first thing they teach you at the academy is if you are caught lying, you’re done.  The FBI takes their agents lying very seriously, as it should, because agents must be able to be  trusted with the powers they are given to do their job.  McCabe and Strzok fell far short of that trust.

Donald Trump Jr Weighing Run for NYC Mayor

According to Page Six, the gossip page of the NY Post, which can be found coincidentally on page 6, Donald Trump Jr is considering a run for mayor of NYC next time out. Although Page Six is a gossip page, it has a long history of being right on it’s articles. But, Trump Jr really would have no chance in an election in one of the most liberal cities on the planet. He might want to do something really crazy like cutting taxes and he would probably have encouraged Amazon to build the campus in the city and create 25,000 jobs. Heaven forbid.

From The Gateway Pundit

Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly weighing a run against Bill de Blasio to become New York City’s next mayor.

According to a report from Page Six, “drums are beating that Donald Jr. would like to run for mayor.”

“We are not talking some parched sod in Iowa, where the corn is as high as a Democrat’s eye. Kiddies, mother is saying friends are saying he is saying he’d like to run for mayor of New York City,” the gossip column’s report asserted.

Trump Jr. is wildly popular among the president’s base.

Earlier this month, de Blasio announced that he will be running for president in the Democratic primary. He was the 24th candidate to announce.

President Trump ripped de Blasio as the ‘worst mayor’ in the United States in a video following his announcement that he is running for president.

In a tweet prior to his official announcement, President Trump said that “the Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!”

Ilhan Omar Promotes Al Jazeera the Day After They Release Anti-Semitic Video

Ilhan Omar of the House Caucus endorsed Al Jazeera the day after they released the Anti-Semitic video calling the Holocaust into question. The video actually claims that the Holocaust was beneficial to Jews and that 6 million dead is a made up number. Al Jazeera is owned by the Qatar royal family, who sponsors terrorism in the Middle East. The video was titled “The gas chambers killed millions of Jews … So the story says. How true is the #Holocaust and how did the Zionists benefit from it?”

Omar’s spokesman Jeremy Slevin did not respond to a request from The Daily Caller News Foundation asking about what steps, if any, Omar took to “call out hate and bigotry” in regards to the Holocaust video.

AJ+ is a youth brand of Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera issued a statement on May 19 saying that “Dr. Yaser Bishr, Executive Director of Digital Division, stated that Al Jazeera completely disowns the offensive content in question and reiterated that Al Jazeera would not tolerate such material on any of the Network’s platforms. In an email to staff he also called for the mandatory bias training and awareness program.” It said two journalists would be disciplined.

Despite the apology, Al Jazeera was apparently trying to keep westerners from finding outthe contents of the video it published — with an assist by Twitter. The social media platform subsequently blocked English translations of the video, displaying only a grey box that says that “the media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”
