Despite plenty of evidence to suggest massive fraud behind “climate change” measures designed to redistribute wealth more than anything else, “progressives” in California are harassing dairy farmers to where moving out of state is becoming an increasingly viable option. That’s the case with Ricardo Lara’s (he’s a Democrat, naturally) bill targeting cow flatulence and manure.
Obnoxious gas and waste would seem topics a “progressive” Sacramento politician would have plenty of subject matter expertise for, but that’s as far as it goes. Lara is a city boy, ruling over Bell Gardens in LA County (which provides an important clue to his political success).
But he sure knows how to tell producers to produce. Most collectivist bosses do – or they at least act that way. Forget the politically-engineered mass starvation that always seems to follow. Wherever collectivists rule an unarmed populace.
Lara’s expertise and knowledge of what it takes must come from being “’Point man in the push for immigrant rights’ in California … ma[king] history by becoming the first openly gay person of color elected to the California Senate [and] earn[ing] his B.A. in Journalism and Spanish with a minor in Chicano Studies.” That and being “[r]aised in a blue collar immigrant household”…
What his official bio conveniently/intentionally fails to mention, is that it was an illegal immigrant household. His father snuck across the border. His mother overstayed her visa. And we can thank “conservative icon” Ronald Reagan for getting suckered into granting amnesty in 1986, fast-tracking their “pathway to citizenship.” They had five children, what we’ve come to know as “birthright citizens,” as if that was the intent behind the Fourteenth Amendment.
Is it any wonder creating a new majority is what the Democrats are working toward in their “fundamental transformation” of the electorate, and thus of the legislatures and the courts? If anyone doubts the polls, just ask them to explain California.
Case in point, look at the membership of the California Latino Legislative Caucus. Then let’s see what their agenda is. Let’s start with Sen. Lara on the right to keep and bear arms:
Want to see what the other Caucus members are up to? Let’s go down the roster, and see what turns up on a simple search:
Starting to form a picture? Try it with the rest. See how many champions of the Second Amendment turn up.
And yes, of course they’ve all taken the oath. It’s easy if you don’t mean it. Wait a few years and it’ll be upheld that requiring it discriminates and disenfranchises. Politicians who refuse will be hailed as bold new media heroes, much like idiot NFL “social justice warriors” are now for dissing the national anthem.
For some time now, I’ve had a challenged that’s gone unanswered by “cheap labor” Republicans and those in the RKBA camp who maintain concerns over immigration have nothing to do with the “single issue” of the Second Amendment:
Produce credible data – not opinion, not anecdotes – something that can be independently validated, that “amnesty” and a “pathway to citizenship” for MILLIONS of foreign nationals in this country illegally (and legally, with CURRENT culturally suicidal policies) WILL NOT overwhelmingly favor Democrats and anti-gunners. Show us your sources and methodologies for determining this WILL NOT result in supermajorities in state and federal legislatures that will then be able to pass all kinds of anti-gun edicts. Show us how this WILL NOT result in nominations and confirmations of judges to the Supreme and federal courts who will uphold those edicts and reverse gains made to date.
They won’t answer for two simple reasons: First they can’t, and they know acknowledging the challenge would call attention to that. And second, they don’t want to mess up access relationships they value more than making sure government officials act within Constitutional restraints.
And what’s the whole purpose of the national government and the reason for ceding delegated powers to it in the first place? That’s pretty much summarized in the Preamble:
[T]o form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…
Leave it to Opposite Day “progressives” to assume the role of domestic enemy by undermining that charter, to usurp power, to promulgate subversion and tyranny, and, if they can’t con the people into giving them what they want by surrendering rights, importing voters to finish the job.
Of course, if you bring any of this up, expect to be shouted down with accusations that you’re a racist. Never mind Mexico’s immigration policy.
And Ricardo Lara acts like he’s the one who’s sick of all the BS…
