Marxifornia, the Statists Paradise

Bunkerville lets us in on the latest encroachment on freedom

Yes, the rumors are true. California lawmakers passed a state law that forces restaurants within the state to offer only select beverages on children’s menus. Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1192 into law in late September and it easily passed in both the State and the Assembly. Support for the nanny state law flew under the guise of what’s healthiest for the children.

The default options for beverages on children’s menus have been forced to change to unflavored milk and water.

Snip..

To the left every problem, even ones only the left sees, can be solved by laws, control, etc.

Music suffered a massive loss when Lynyrd Skynyrd’s plane went down

This was a massive loss for rock music, the bands survivors would reunite in 1987, and were still excellent. Ronnie Van Zant’s little brother Johnny would take Ronnie’s place behind the mic, and original members  guitarists Ed King, Gary Rossington, drummer Artimus Pyle, bassist Leon Wilkerson, and keyboardist Billy Powell returned. Original guitarist Allen Collins had been paralyzed in an auto accident years before.

Deep State Update: FBI Leaker Sentenced To 4 Years In Prison For Giving Classified Documents To Press – Law & Crime

Terry Albury, the former Minnesota FBI counterterrorism agent who leaked classified documents to the press, was sentenced to 48 months in prison on Thursday. This comes roughly six months after Albury pleaded guilty to one count of making an unauthorized disclosure of national defense information and one count of unlawful retention of national defense information.

Albury faced a maximum of ten years behind bars per count going into his sentencing hearing.

A statement from his attorneys when the plea was announced explained that Albury was willing to accept responsibility for his actions, but felt the need to leak information in order to serve as a whistleblower against what he felt was the FBI’s racist treatment of minorities…

Muslim Rape Gang Of 20 Men Whose Trial Led To Tommy Robinson’s Arrest Are Jailed For More Than 220 Years For Sexually Assaulting White Girls As Young As 11 – Daily Mail

A gang who sexually abused vulnerable girls as young as eleven in Huddersfield have been jailed for a combined total of over 200 years in the latest Asian sex ring to be brought before the courts.

The gang carried out the ‘cynical’ exploitation of the girls – aged between just 11 and 17 – often included plying them with alcohol and drugging them before carrying out horrific sexual assaults.

The court heard evidence from 15 victims during the trials and the judge said he fears none of them will ever recover from their ordeals. The pattern of exploitation of mainly white girls by groups of men of mainly Pakistani heritage mirrors what has happened in a number of other towns including Rotherham, Rochdale and Telford.

The Leeds trials attracted protests by right wing groups and EDL founder Tommy Robinson, who was jailed for contempt for endangering one of the cases with social media posts. He has since been freed but faces another hearing…

The Public Interest Legal Foundation alerted district attorneys and the federal Justice Department to the pre-checked applications, and also included a signed affidavit from a man who said some of his relatives, who aren’t citizens, received the mailing.

Winning: U.S. Is Seeing ‘Relentless Rise In Household Wealth,’ Credit Suisse Report Says – CNBC

Household wealth in the U.S. is continuing to see an “unbroken spell of wealth gains” but China has replaced Japan in second place in the world wealth hierarchy, according to Credit Suisse’s latest report on global wealth.

During the 12 months since the bank’s last report to mid-2018, aggregate global wealth rose by $14 trillion to $317 trillion, representing a growth rate of approximately 4.6 percent, according to the Global Wealth Report 2018, published by Credit Suisse’s Research Institute on Thursday.

“The United States continued its unbroken spell of wealth gains since the global financial crisis, adding another $6 trillion to the stock of global wealth,” Credit Suisse’s annual report noted, saying that rising household wealth in the U.S. was “seemingly relentless.”…

Private Spaceflight Company Rocket Lab Chooses Wallops Island, Virginia As American Launch Site – Popular Mechanics

Rocket Lab, the New Zealand-based launch startup, just announced Wallops Island, Virginia as its choice for a site to launch rockets from the U.S. Wallops won out over finalists Vandenberg Air Force Base (California), the Pacific Spaceport Complex (Alaska), and Cape Canaveral (Florida).

The company cited the relatively quiet nature of Wallops as an appealing fact, whereas SpaceX and others are busy upping their launch schedules at some of those other sites.

It’s been a down-and-then-up last five years for Wallops Island. As we wrote in this piece back in 2013, the place had a long history in launch as the oldest continuous rocket launch range in the United States, but nearly shuttered in the 1990s…

Federal Judge Says State Department Provided False Statements To Derail Lawsuits Over Hillary Clinton’s Private Server – Gateway Pundit

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is still fighting to get Hillary Clinton to answer questions under oath about her private email server.

Thanks to Judicial Watch, the public became aware of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Clinton used a private email account to conduct official business while she was the head of the Department of State in order to conceal her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play and influence peddling.

On Friday, a federal judge told Judicial Watch in a court hearing that he was shocked Hillary Clinton’s aide-turned-lawyer Cheryl Mills was given immunity. The federal judge also said the State Department provided false statements to derail the lawsuits over Hillary Clinton’s private server.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth strongly criticized the U.S. Department of State, stating, “The information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the [Clinton email] search…

MAGA Update: U.S. Steel Workers Set To Get Biggest Pay Raise In Years – Reuters

United States Steel Corp (X.N) workers are set to get the biggest wage jump in at least six years under a new deal negotiated with the company, providing early signs that gains from U.S. President Donald Trump’s clampdown on foreign imports are finally trickling down.

The agreement, reached on Monday, proposes a cumulative 14 percent wage increase over a four-year period, three sources familiar with details of the negotiations told Reuters on Tuesday.

Wages were frozen in the last contract, which ended on Sept. 1, as the Pittsburgh-based company was suffering losses from a slump in the domestic steel prices. The 2012-2015 agreement raised wages by an average of about 1.5 percent per year over three years, according to the workers’ union…

Trump Administration Moves To Stop Subsidizing Chinese Mail – WTKR

The Trump administration is moving to raise postage rates for foreign companies that ship packages to the United States.

Some countries, including China, currently benefit from subsidized postal rates set by the Universal Postal Union, a United Nations agency.

On Wednesday, U.S. officials will initiate a withdrawal process from the UPU, which was established in 1874 and has 192 member countries. The process to withdraw will take at least a year, and the administration intends to negotiate new rates with the group during that time.

Under the current rules, the UPU sets lower rates for developing countries. It makes it possible to mail a package from Beijing to New York for less than it costs to send it from San Francisco to New York, for example.

China, Singapore, Germany, France and some other countries benefit from the policy, said a senior White House official on a call with reporters…

Salvini Furious After French Confirm Their Police Dumped Migrants In Italian Town – Breitbart

Mr Salvini criticised the French after they claimed the migrants had been dropped off in the Italian town of Claviere by mistake, saying: “What happened to Claviere is an unprecedented offence against our country.”
