California Legislature Considers Free Health Care for Illegal Alien Seniors

JOEL B. POLLAK

The California state legislature is considering a bill that would expand Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicare program, to illegal aliens over the age of 65 with low incomes.

Earlier this year, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill expanding Medi-Cal to illegal aliens 25 years old and younger with low enough incomes to qualify for the program. That fulfilled a pledge he made in his first act as governor to offer coverage to illegal aliens over 18 years old.

As Calmatters notes, Newsom balked at proposals earlier this year to expand Medi-Cal to elderly illegal aliens because of concerns about the cost, and because the proposal would pre-empt the governor’s budget proposals.

Calmat’s explains (original links):

The bill, authored by Los Angeles Democrat Maria Elena Durazo, would expand Medi-Cal—the state’s version of federal Medicaid  for low-income residents — to undocumented immigrants age 65 and older starting next July. That would inch the state closer to providing health care to all immigrants in the state illegally.

The governor hasn’t indicated whether he would sign this bill, despite his previous support for universal health care. Experts note that he might object to its attempt to lock him into new spending for next year’s budget.

The Newsom administration’s Finance Department opposes the bill, estimating it would cost an additional $163 million in next year’s budget and $255 million the following year, with costs projected to rise further as the senior population of undocumented immigrants grows. Nearly all of those costs would be born by state taxpayers because the federal government, which funds most of Medicaid, refuses to pay for services for people in the country illegally.

All of the Democratic Party frontrunners for president support providing free health care to illegal aliens; all ten presidential candidates on the stage at the second night of the first presidential debate in Miami, Florida, famously raised their hands to agree.

TRUMP ENRAGES LEFT BY SKIPPING G7 CLIMATE MEETING

Trump Enrages Left by Skipping G7 Climate Meeting

Climate change action meant to consolidate globalist control

AUGUST 27, 2019

While President Trump rubbed elbows with globalists at G7 in Biarritz, France, he did not attend the assembly’s climate talks.

In one of the conference’s last meetings, various heads of state held discussions addressing the issue of manmade global warming.

Photos circulating show world leaders including Germany’s Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and others sitting around a table while a chair in the middle was left noticeably vacant.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president was busy with other meetings when the climate conference took place, but noted a staffer sat in his stead.

“The President had scheduled meetings and bilaterals with Germany and India, so a senior member of the Administration attended in his stead,” Grisham said in a statement.

While a national security staffer sat in for Trump, CNN’s Jim Acosta criticized the president saying the empty seat was symbolic of the administration’s position on climate change in the past few years.

“We should note to our viewers Prime Minister Modi of India and Chancellor Merkel were at that climate session here at the G7 summit,” Acosta stated. “So we’re not getting a lot of straight answers. Perhaps we’ll get some, perhaps we won’t, at this joint press conference when the president and Emmanuel Macron come out here in just a short while.”

CNN’s editor-in-chief Chris Cillizza was also miffed, but unsurprised by the president’s absence: Donald Trump didn’t accidentally forget the climate change meeting. He didn’t decide he wanted to meet with staff from the governments of India and Germany. He just didn’t want to go. He didn’t want to sit around and be, in his mind, lectured by foreign leaders about how he needs to think and feel about the issue.

Trump has referred the idea of manmade global warming a hoax, and made removing the US from the Paris Climate Accord one of his first acts as president.

Trump Ending Welfare-Dependent Immigration, Saving Taxpayers Billions

Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 11.13.48 AM

By John Binder

President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.

A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.

The regulation will be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.

A recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) study notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.

In California — with the largest noncitizen population in the country at almost 11 million or nearly 30 percent of the state’s total population — more than seven-in-ten, or 72 percent, of households headed by noncitizens are on at least one form of welfare. Compare that to the findings that only about seven-in-twenty, or 35 percent, of native-born households in California are on welfare.

Preventing Americans from being forced to foot the bill for welfare for newly arrived legal immigrants is hugely popular among U.S. voters. A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in 2017 revealed that more than six-in-ten voters, or 62 percent, said they would support a plan that bans legal immigrants from receiving welfare for at least the first five years of their residency in the country. Roughly 67 percent of swing voters and nearly 60 percent of black Americans said they would support such a plan.

Another 76 percent of U.S. voters said welfare users should be mandated to prove that they are not in the country illegally before being allowed to obtain public benefits, including 74 percent of black Americans, 77 percent of swing voters, and 63 percent of Democrat voters.

Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs.

Modesto, California Denies Permit for Straight Pride Parade

The City of Modesto won’t permit a straight pride parade to take place at a city park on August 24th.

By Richard Moorhead

The City of Modesto, California, has denied a permit for a planned Straight Pride Parade slated to take place in a city park on August 24th.

The event was being organized by the National Straight Pride Coalition.

In a twist many are calling indicative of the city’s double standards and selective approval process, Modesto has granted permission for a Gay Pride Festival to take place in the city. From the looks of it, the gay pride event receives a significant amount of city resources, a luxury the municipal government is unwilling to provide to the planned straight pride parade.

On their website, the National Straight Pride Coalition expresses their support for heterosexuality, God-ordained nuclear families, Western Civilization, Caucasians, Christianity and Nationalism.

The movement expresses a desire for “preventing the current and future generations of all races and colors from being destroyed by the inherent malevolence of the Homosexual Movement toward our founding principles.”

A city spokesman named Thomas Reeves claimed the city couldn’t approve the straight pride parade because of safety concerns. Modesto apparently wanted the National Straight Pride Coalition to obtain liability insurance for the event.

He said the event may end up receiving approval after all if it’s willing to move their desired location from Graceada Park to downtown Modesto. It remains to be seen if city is merely going through to motions to make it seem like the pride event received a fair process before shutting down their event, or intends to actually the straight pride organizers a chance to voice their views.

Hoax 4-Eva! Banks Give Congress Documents on Trump’s Interactions with Russians

A group of banks has turned over documents on Russians who may have done business with President Donald Trump following a request from Congress, a Thursday report states.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Deutsche Bank gave lawmakers thousands of documents as part of a joint investigation by the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees into possible foreign influence over President Trump and members of his family. The former committee is chaired by none other than impeachment crusaders Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). These financial institutions are expected to transfer more documents to congressional investigators in the coming weeks, the Journal said.

Lawmakers issued subpoenas for the information in April.

“Separately, Deutsche Bank, Mr. Trump’s primary bank, has turned over emails, loan agreements and other documents related to the Trump Organization to the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James, in response to a civil subpoena sent earlier this year, according to people familiar with the New York investigation,” the newspaper reports.

In April, President Trump, his three oldest children, and the Trump Organization sued Deutsche Bank and Capital One to prevent them from handing over their financial records to Congress. The president and his former real estate company also filed a lawsuit to block a subpoena from the House Oversight Committee seeking financial documents from Mazars, an accounting firm.

Last month, President Trump filed a civil lawsuit to prevent the House Ways and Means Committee from obtaining his tax returns from New York state officials.

The lawsuit, which was filed July 23rd in Washington against the House panel, New York State Attorney General Letitia James, and New York State Department of Taxation and Finance commissioner Michael Schmidt, seeks an injunction to block a new state law. The law would allow the Democrat-controlled House and Ways Means Committee to obtain the president’s tax returns.

“Once it became clear that Treasury would not divulge the President’s federal tax returns, New York passed a law allowing the Committee to get his state returns,” reads the court filing. “That hyper-specific condition was, not coincidentally, already satisfied for the intended target of the Act: President Trump.”

The committee sued the Treasury Department and IRS officials in an attempt to enforce a law that allows its chairman, Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA), to obtain any taxpayer’s returns.

#KamalaHarrisDestroyed trends on Twitter after annihilation by Tulsi Gabbard, ‘Russian bots’ blamed

Screen Shot 2019-08-01 at 11.03.37 AM

Twitter deemed presidential hopeful Kamala Harris utterly “destroyed,” after fellow candidate Tulsi Gabbard landed dizzying verbal haymakers on the former California prosecutor. Naturally, ‘Russian bots’ were swiftly blamed.

Wednesday night’s Democratic debate was not an enjoyable one for Harris, who went into the faceoff as a darling of the media and among the frontrunners for her party’s nomination. On the stage in Detroit, Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard grilled Harris on her record as California’s attorney general.

In under a minute, Gabbard shredded Harris to pieces for jailing more than 1,500 nonviolent marijuana offenders while admitting in a radio interview that she had smoked marijuana in college, and for her “tough-on-crime” stances. “She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row… she kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor… and she fought to keep the cash bail system in place,” Gabbard continued, leaving Harris unable to counter.

By Thursday morning, “#KamalaHarrisDestroyed” was trending on Twitter in the US.

Of course, any attack on an establishment Democrat is met with an equal and opposite reaction. Establishment pundits and their supporters responded with a familiar cry: “Russia!” Gabbard, they said, is propped up by Vladimir Putin, and #KamalaHarrisDestroyed is the work of “Putin’s bots and paid for shills.”

Screen Shot 2019-08-01 at 11.09.21 AM

Even Harris’ press secretary, Ian Sams, labeled Gabbard’s supporters part of “the Russian propaganda machine.”

It’s worth noting that nobody shouting “Russian bots” did any data analysis to support their claims. Few noted too that, during the debate, ‘Tulsi Gabbard’ was the most searched for politician in every single US state, according to Google Trends.

But if the nefarious hashtag wasn’t the work of the Kremlin, then it must have been the work of the MAGA-hatted deplorables, some #resistance commenters argued.

That opponents would default to Russia to attack Gabbard is unsurprising. Running on an anti-interventionist, foreign-policy-focused platform, Gabbard has been accused of cosying up to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad for her opposition to military action in Syria and for meeting with Assad in Damascus. That stance alone led to accusations that she was more closely aligned with the position of the Kremlin than that of the White House.

At present, Gabbard is a long-shot candidate, and is polling at around one percent.

Congressman Ted Lieu Claims Somebody ‘Got To’ Robert Mueller

By Rusty Weiss and Jeff Dunetz

Democrat Representative Ted Lieu (CA) tossed out a wild conspiracy theory during an interview on CNN, suggesting somebody “got to” Robert Mueller during his testimony and killed his big ‘gotcha moment’ against the President.

Lieu, who promised his rabid liberal base that “minds may be blown” during the testimony, was inadvertently an integral part in the Democrats messaging about obstruction of justice falling apart.

During the morning session of the former special counsel’s testimony, he was a hero, getting Mueller to agree that his office didn’t charge the President with obstruction because of Department of Justice policies against indicting sitting presidents.

In the afternoon, it all came crumbling down. Mueller began the new session by correcting the record.

That’s when Ted Lieu got his tinfoil hat. Appearing on Anderson Cooper 360, Lieu actually suggested Mueller, who had been a star for the resistance party for two years, had been compromised.

This was wild. Well, wild and an unfortunate attempt at trying to explain to your supporters how you managed to botch a ‘gotcha moment’ against the President you’re so desperately trying to take down.

“Mueller agreed that the OLC opinion prevented a sitting president from being indicted,” Lieu explained to host Wolf Blitzer. “And then the republican member after me asked him a series of questions to try to get him to walk it back, and he did not do that.”

“Then it wasn’t until there was a recess in the Intel Committee that he started to walk some of that back,” he continued. “I don’t know who got to him. I don’t know who talked to him, but that was very odd what he did.”

Blitzer gave him an opportunity to walk back his own assertion that Mueller had been strong-armed by somebody. GASP! Maybe the Russians? Perhaps there were threatening Zombies in the room Mueller hung out in between hearings. Or maybe it was poltergeists.

Since his correction simply stated what he already wrote in his report, It is most likely that Mueller was visited by the truth fairy.

Honestly, if anyone got to Mueller, it’d be Ted’s party who held mock hearings the day before to practice for the big congressional hearing. And it worked because after Mueller’s testimony most Americans mocked the real hearings.

The official campaign arm of the resistance party, meanwhile, ignored Mueller’s correction and pushed the narrative that Mueller testified he would charge President Trump with obstruction if he weren’t president.

The media tried to as well, with Trump swatting them down in epic fashion.

Lieu has also spread other conspiracy theories about Trump and Russia, including an assertion that the widely debunked Steele dossier “has lots of truth.” The only thing truthful one could say about the Steele dossier is that it used the alphabet and punctuation.

Do you think the Democrats will ever awaken from this Russia nightmare that keeps playing in their feeble little minds over and over again? It’s doubtful because if they moved away from the Russia hoax, they would need to find something to occupy their time—like help fix America’s problems.

Berkeley City Councilor Calls Tucker Carlson “White Supremacist Goblin”

The California progressive had led a drive to rename manholes “maintenance holes.”

By Richard Moorhead

A Berkeley, California city councilor denied a request to appear on primetime Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show on Thursday in prolific fashion.

Rigel Robinson tweeted an email exchange with a booker for Carlson’s show, in which he called the primetime host a “white supremacist goblin.”

The city councilor had sponsored a drive to rename manholes- the term commonly used in the English language for the covers of sewer access pipes on the streets- to “maintenance holes.” According to Robinson, the new word imagined for the the objects is nominally more “inclusive” than its predecessor.

Carlson’s scheduler reached out hoping to book Robinson to explain his move. Robinson flipped out in response, making the leap from gender-neutral language to accusing Carlson of racism in relatively unprecedented terms.

“Unfortunately I won’t be able to come on the show,” Robinson expressed in his email. “Tucker Carlson is a dangerous, xenophobic, racist, white supremacist goblin who I am not interested in engaging with.”

The email thread in which Robinson accused Carlson of being a fantasy creature from J.R.R Tolkien’s universe was deleted on Twitter as of Friday morning, and it’s unclear if the tweet was removed by the city councilor or censored by Twitter. Robinson’s affiliation with the progressive left makes the former far more likely.

Although his desperate bid to avoid being questioned on Orwellian redefinition tactics appears to have succeeded for now, the progressive has made it clear that he has no genuine argument for stripping the term “manhole” of its commonly known and traditional title.
