“Liberal governing has transformed beautiful California into the poverty capital of America with the worst quality of life. Crazy taxes, crazy high cost of living, and crazy overreaching regulations have crushed the middle class, forcing the middle class to exit the Sunshine State. All that is left in California are illegals feeding at the breast of the state, rapidly growing massive homeless tent cities, and the mega-rich.” LLOYD MARCUS

LA RAZA ERIC HOLDER SAYS HELL NO TO COUNTING OCCUPYING MEXICANS IN CENSUS
THE LA RAZA-OCCUPIED WELFARE STATE of MEXIFORNIA:
"L.A. County has 144% more registered voters than there are residents of legal voting age. Clearly, illegals are illegally voting.
Get this, folks: Americans are spending
almost a billion dollars a year on auto
insurance for illegals. Brown is gifting illegals
billions in welfare and housing while his
constituents cannot find a place to live."
Lloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated American
VOTER FRAUD DEMS FREAK OUT OVERCITIZENSHIP CENSUS QUESTION
The left loses its mind every hour and you can watch the madness live on CNN or MSNBC. But sometimes it really is worried. This is one of those times.
Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that a question on citizenship status will be reinstated to the 2020 decennial census questionnaire to help enforce the Voting Rights Act (VRA). Secretary Ross’s decision follows a request by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to add a question on citizenship status to the 2020 decennial census.
The citizenship question will be the same as the one that is asked on the yearly American Community Survey (ACS). Citizenship questions have also been included on prior decennial censuses. Between 1820 and 1950, almost every decennial census asked a question on citizenship in some form. Today, surveys of sample populations, such as the Current Population Survey and the ACS, continue to ask a question on citizenship.
On December 12, 2017, DOJ requested that the Census Bureau reinstate a citizenship question on the decennial census to provide census block level citizenship voting age population (CVAP) data that is not currently available from government surveys. DOJ and the courts use CVAP data for the enforcement of Section 2 of the VRA, which protects minority voting rights.
Of course the data also provides all sorts of useful information. And it will help expose voter fraud and make a mockery of some Dem districts which have plenty of residents, but few citizens.
There's one subject that the left fears above all others. And this is it.
Unlike the reflexive ideological stuff, the Muslim travel ban, most social issues, this actually hits at the heart of their entire political infrastructure. It's why they're worried. Very worried.
“The addition of a citizenship question to the census questionnaire is a direct attack on our representative democracy,“ Holder squealed.
That's the exact opposite of what it is. It's the Dem system that is an attack on our representative democracy.
But there are plenty of recent examples of Federal judges misbehaving. So I'm sure the gang will find some Obama judge to declare that a census can't ask about citizenship. Sure that sounds crazy, but we've got judges deciding that the President doesn't control immigration policy, can't suspend an illegal unilateral amnesty or block people on Twitter.
And yet this is the Achilles heel.
The entire system that the left uses to rule us is based on fraud. Behind the curtain is a naked emperor clothed only in fraud and lies.
Here in Wisconsin, we’ve had our fair share of fights. We’ve fought to defend the conservative ideals of hard work, limited government and personal responsibility – taking on the big government union bosses along the way.
Now, we have a bigger fight than ever – led by none other than President Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, with liberal special interests preparing to target our state like never before.
When I became Governor of Wisconsin, we inherited a $3.6 billion deficit, sky-high unemployment, and record job loss. For years, big government special interests were in charge and driving our state into the ground. We knew it would take bold action to change course, and that’s exactly what we did – now, Wisconsin is working.
It wasn’t easy – liberal union bosses came out in force, fighting against us every step of the way – and we learned what the angry Left looks like here in Wisconsin.
Many of those same angry liberals are out in force again, but this year is different – their anger is unprecedented, and they are motivated.
Already, the outside special interests are lining up to target us. Big government unions like the SEIU, AFL-CIO, and AFSCME, liberal extremists like George Soros and Tom Steyer, and far-Left groups like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood are laying the groundwork for a fight unlike anything we’ve ever seen in Wisconsin. They are pledging to spend tens of millions of dollars to rollback our nationally-leading reforms and we’re expecting this will be the most expensive cycle in state history.
We need to fight to protect the progress we’ve made and keep Wisconsin working. Under our leadership, unemployment is at a historic low, we’ve balanced the budget and lowered the tax burden, putting the power back into the hands of hard-working taxpayers. We’ve prioritized workforce development, setting a national example for a vibrant and dynamic workforce.
Now that Wisconsin is working, we’ve made record investments into education, highlighting the potential of what conservative reforms can do for students and families. We enacted bold welfare reforms that are leading the nation and helping people achieve true independence by ensuring that public assistance is more like a trampoline and less like a hammock. But we know that there is more to be done to keep Wisconsin moving forward.
On behalf of the hard-working taxpayers in Wisconsin – and those who look to us as a national conservative leader – I am telling you that this is going to be a fight for the heart of conservatism as we know it. We need to stand up for the future we want for ourselves and for our children.
The liberals are angry and motivated – we need to counter with organization and our optimistic plan for the future.
Our reforms have Wisconsin working, and I’m asking you to stand with us to defend them. This is a nationwide fight for our conservative values – the responsibility rests on all of our shoulders to stand up for the reforms that we know are right and working. Join our team – your support is invaluable – as we fight for conservatism across the country.
Adios, Sanctuary La Raza Welfare State of California A fifth-generation Californian
laments his state’s ongoing economic collapse. By Steve Baldwin American Spectator, October 19, 2017 What’s clear is that the producers are leaving
the state and the takers are coming in. Many of the takers are illegal aliens,
now estimated to number over 2.6 million. The
Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that California spends $22
billion on government services for illegal aliens, including welfare,
education, Medicaid, and criminal justice system costs.

claim they more than make that up with taxes paid, but that’s simply not true.
It’s not even close. FAIR estimates illegal aliens in California contribute
only $1.21 billion in tax revenue, which means they cost California $20.6
billion, or at least $1,800 per household.
Nonetheless, open border advocates, such as Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg,
claim illegal aliens are a net benefit to California with little evidence to
support such an assertion. As the Center for Immigration Studies has
documented, the vast majority of illegals are poor, uneducated, and with few
skills. How does accepting millions of illegal aliens and then granting them
access to dozens of welfare programs benefit California’s economy? If illegal
aliens were contributing to the economy in any meaningful way, California, with
its 2.6 million illegal aliens, would be booming. Furthermore, the complexion of illegal aliens
has changed with far more on welfare and committing crimes than those who
entered the country in the 1980s. Heather Mac Donald of
the Manhattan Institute has testified before a Congressional committee that in
2004, 95% of all outstanding warrants for murder in Los Angeles were for
illegal aliens; in 2000, 23% of all Los Angeles County jail inmates were
illegal aliens and that in 1995, 60% of Los Angeles’s largest street gang, the
18th Street gang, were illegal aliens. Granted, those
statistics are old, but if you talk to any California law enforcement officer,
they will tell you it’s much worse today. The problem is that the Brown
administration will not release any statewide data on illegal alien crimes.
That would be insensitive. And now that California has declared itself a
“sanctuary state,” there is little doubt this sends a message south of the
border that will further escalate illegal immigration into the state.
"If the racist "Sensenbrenner
Legislation" passes the US Senate, there is no doubt that a massive civil
disobedience movement will emerge. Eventually labor union power can merge with
the immigrant civil rights and "Immigrant Sanctuary" movements
to enable us to either form a new political party or to do heavy duty reforming
of the existing Democratic Party. The next and final steps would follow and
that is to elect our own governors of all the states within Aztlan." Indeed, California goes out of its way to
attract illegal aliens. The state has even created government programs that
cater exclusively to illegal aliens. For example, the State Department of Motor
Vehicles has offices that only process driver licenses for illegal aliens. With
over a million illegal aliens now driving in California, the state felt
compelled to help them avoid the long lines the rest of us must endure at the
DMV. And just recently, the state-funded University
of California system announced it will spend $27 million on financial aid for
illegal aliens. They’ve even taken out radio spots on stations
all along the border, just to make sure other potential illegal border crossers
hear about this program. I can’t afford college
education for all my four sons, but my taxes will pay for illegals to get a
California used to be
home to America's largest and most affluent middle class. Today, it
is America's poverty capital. What went wrong? In a
According to the U.S. Census Bureau's Official Poverty Measure, California's poverty rate hovers
around 15 percent. But this figure is misleading: the Census Bureau
measures poverty relative to a uniform national standard, which doesn't account
for differences in living costs between states – the cost of taxes, housing,
and health care are higher in California than in Oklahoma, for
example. Accounting for these differences reveals that California's real poverty rate is
20.6 percent –
the highest in America, and nearly twice the national average of 12.7
Likewise, income inequality in California is
the second-highest in America, behind only New York. In fact, if California
were an independent country, it would be the 17th most unequal country on Earth,
nestled comfortably between Honduras and Guatemala. Mexico is
slightly more egalitarian. California is far more unequal than the
"social democracies" it emulates: Canada is the 111th most
unequal nation, while Norway is far down the list at number 153 (out of 176
countries). In terms of income inequality, California has more in
common with banana republics than other "social democracies."
More Government, More Poverty
High taxes, excessive regulations,
and a lavish welfare state – these are the standard explanations for
California's poverty epidemic. They have some merit. For
example, California has both the highest personal income tax rate and the
highest sales tax in America, according to Politifact.
Not only are California's taxes high,
but successive "progressive" governments have swamped the state in a
sea of red tape. Onerous regulations cripple small businesses and
retard economic growth. Kerry Jackson, a fellow with the Pacific
Research Institute, gives a few specific examples of how excessive government
regulation hurts California's poor. He writes in a recent op-ed for
the Los Angeles Times:
Extensive environmental regulations
aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions make energy more expensive, also
hurting the poor. By some estimates, California energy costs are as
much as 50% higher than the national average. Jonathan A. Lesser of
Continental Economics ... found that "in 2012, nearly 1 million California
households faced ... energy expenditures exceeding 10% of household income."
Some government regulation is
necessary and desirable, but most of California's is not. There is
virtue in governing with a "light touch."
Finally, California's welfare state
is, perhaps paradoxically, a source of poverty in the
state. The Orange Country Register reports that California's
social safety net is comparable in scale to those found in Europe:
In California a mother
with two children under the age of 5 who participates in these major welfare
programs – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program (food stamps), housing assistance, home energy assistance,
Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children – would
receive a benefits package worth $30,828 per year.
... [Similar] benefits
in Europe ranged from $38,588 per year in Denmark to just $1,112 in
Romania. The California benefits package is higher than in
well-known welfare states as France ($17,324), Germany ($23,257) and even
Although welfare states ideally help
the poor, reality is messy. There are three main problems with the
welfare state. First, it incentivizes poverty by rewardingthe
poor with government handouts that are often far more valuable than a
job. This can be ameliorated to some degree by imposing work
requirements on welfare recipients, but in practice, such requirements are
rarely imposed. Second, welfare states are expensive. This means higher taxes and therefore slower economic
growth and fewer job opportunities for everyone – including the poor.
Finally, welfare states are magnets
for the poor. Whether through domestic migration or foreign
immigration, poor people flock to places with generous welfare
states. This is logical from the immigrant's perspective, but it
makes little sense from the taxpayer's. This fact is why socialism
and open borders arefundamentally incompatible.
Why Big Government?
Since 1960, California's population exploded from 15.9 to 39 million
people. The growth was almost entirely due to immigration – many
people came from other states, but the majority came from
abroad. The Public Policy Institute of California estimates that 10 million
immigrants currently reside in California. This works out to 26
percent of the state's population.
BLOG: COME TO
MEXIFORNIA! HALF OF LOS ANGELES 15 MILLION ARE ILLEGALS!
This figure includes
2.4 million illegal aliens, although a recent study from Yale University suggests that the
true number of aliens is at least double that. Modifying the initial figure implies that
nearly one in three Californians is an immigrant. This
is not to disparage California's immigrant population, but it is madness to
deny that such a large influx of people has changed California's society and
Importantly, immigrants vote
Democrat by a ratio higher than 2:1, according to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies. In California,
immigration has increased the pool of likely Democrat voters by nearly 5
million people, compared to just 2.4 million additional likely Republican
voters. Not only does this almost guarantee Democratic victories,
but it also shifts California's political midpoint to the left. This
means that to remain competitive in elections, the Republicans must abandon
or soften many conservative positions so as to cater to the center.
California became a
Democratic stronghold not because Californians became socialists, but because
millions of socialists moved there. Immigration turned California
blue, and immigration is ultimately to blame for California's high poverty
Leftists are relentlessly
selling their bogus narrative that Trump is insane. Here are samples
of leftists' headlines: "Lawmakers Met With Psychiatrist About Trump's
Mental Health," "President Trump's Mental State An 'Enormous Present
Danger,'" "The Awkward Debate Around Trump's Mental Fitness,"
"The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists Assess."
So what has Trump done to
convince leftists that he must be crazy? Unlike Republicans, Trump
fearlessly confronts fake news media, calling them out when they
lie. Unlike Obama's punish-evil-America-first presidency, Trump has
America's best interest at heart. Unlike leftists seeking to
dissolve our borders, Trump plans to build a wall to protect our people and our
economy. Insanely, leftists cheered when Obama allowed
Ebola into America, claiming it was racist and unfair for Americans not to be
subjected to the disease. Unlike Obama, Hillary, Democrats, and fake
news media's war on Christianity (forcing a 100-year-old order of Catholic
nuns to fund contraception and forcing Christian businesses to service
same-sex ceremonies), Trump vows to defend religious liberty.
So I guess, according to
leftists' perverse way of thinking, that Trump must be crazy, along with the 63
million Americans who voted for him.
leftists are ignoring glaring reasons to question the sanity of California's
governor, Jerry Brown. The entire country is talking about the
collapse of California due to decades of insane liberal
policies. And what is Governor Brown's response? He
implemented hundreds more destructive liberal rules, regulations, and giveaways
to illegals. An article listing the top ten
stupidest new California laws includes "Single-User Restrooms,"
"Controlling Cow Flatulence," "Legalizing Child
Prostitution," and "Felons Voting."
Governor Brown signed a
new law making California a sanctuary state, doubling down on his bizarre quest
to undermine American citizens. In essence, Brown gave federal law,
President Trump, and legal California residents his middle
finger. Numerous California families have suffered devastating
losses of family members killed by illegals with long felony records who have
been deported several times and welcomed back with open arms by
Brown. One mom whose son was killed by an illegal with two DUIs and
two felonies said Brown should be arrested for treason. Isn't it
reasonable to question Brown's sanity?
Insanely, three fourths
of California's taxpayer dollars – more than $30 billion – is spent on
illegal aliens. Meanwhile, despite the highest taxes in the nation,
California is $1.3 trillion in debt – unemployment is at a staggering
11%. California's wacko giveaways to illegals include in-state
tuition, amounting to $25 million of financial aid. Nearly a million
illegals have California driver's licenses. L.A. County has 144%
more registered voters than there are residents of legal voting
age. Clearly, illegals are illegally
Get this, folks:
Americans are spending almost a billion dollars a year on auto insurance for
illegals. Brown is gifting illegals billions in welfare and housing
while his constituents cannot find a place to live.
Ten years ago, a buddy of
mine excitedly moved his family from Maryland to California to accept the
highest-paying job of his career. Despite his lucrative salary, he
was forced to move back east due to the outrageously high cost of
living. My buddy said if he were an illegal, practically everything
would be free. His story inspired me to write and record a Beach Boys-style
song titled "Can't Afford the Sunshine."
Once again, I ask you,
folks: would a rational governor do what Brown is doing to his
constituents? Is Governor Jerry Brown mentally ill?
