California Considers Monitoring Online Speech

Leave a comment

Reflections on Media and Politics

Editor’s Note: California may set the tone for a national conversation and perhaps even set of laws addressing what the state’s lawmakers deem “false information … spread online.” Since political motivation and ideology often underly what one deems “fake news” this proposed move should be especially concerning for those who truly cherish free thought and expression. As the article below suggests, Facebook’s recent nod to corporate media outlets as an antithesis to “fake news” has demonstrated how such an effort is likely to be instituted in California and elsewhere. The Electronic Frontier Foundation argues that the law is dangerous because it places the governing body in a position to determine what is true and false.

The proposed speech legislation was introduced by California State Senator Richard Pan, a practicing pediatrician and the principal lawmaker behind SB277, the state’s mandatory vaccination law. A voter-driven campaign in 2015 to have Pan ousted from office was not successful.

CBS13 Sacramento reports:

California is considering creating a “fake news” advisory group in order to monitor information posted and spread on social media.

Senate Bill 1424 would require the California Attorney General to create the advisory committee by April 1, 2019. It would need to consist of at least one person from the Department of Justice, representatives from social media providers, civil liberties advocates, and First Amendment scholars.

LAWLESSNESS ABOUNDS: SHADES OF THE SANCTUARY STATE

It wasn’t very long ago when President Obama created an agenda to usher in thousands upon thousands of immigrants from various war torn countries, of which many thousands were Muslims, yet only around 6% were Christians. While the horrors of war and terrorism ravaged Syria, the one-sidedness of refugee admissions and favoritism was allowed, all the while the main stream news(MSM), once again looked the other way and interestingly enough, so did Congress. But why? With that much spread between two very different religions, it is more than likely that there was an ulterior motive. Just start by connecting the dots.

As one delves deeper into the agenda, a person finds that various organizations in the U.S. have participated through the years with the influx of migrants.  Refugee status and admission to any country is presently determined by the United Nations. Most persons who enter the U.S.

refugee admissions program are identified and referred for resettlement in the U.S. by the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR), or a U.S. embassy, or an approved humanitarian aid organization.

Christian charities that are part of the program also profit from Muslim refugee resettlements which also makes them largely responsible for the kind of program that was used during the Obama administration. Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, and several other Christian organizations are profiting from lucrative contracts. Thus there is a huge incentive by charities to help place refugees into various cities across the U.S.  even when the refugees are not vetted properly. Mayors of various cities, through the years, were anxious to cater to these refugees as those city governments would be receiving state and/or federal money for the resettlements that would take place in their communities.

ALL 2017 SALES TAX RATES ARE GOING UP IN THE GREAT LATE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

So where are the protests? Is it just “politically correct” and “tolerable” for all of the lower 1/3 to pay more excessive taxes to Jerry Brown who is now the self appointed, deputy/controller and King of the great late State of California and will he later be
running for President of California if it becomes a new nation? This kind of idea has a very distasteful flavor and has a ring to it which is likened to our beloved KGB director/dictator, Valdimir Putin of Russia, doesn’t it?

Yes it is true. Jerry Brown likes taxing everyone down to the bone for his poverty stricken Utopian, welfare state, while living up to his Alma Mater standard. After graduating from St. Ignatius High School in 1955, he then entered Sacred Heart Novitiate, a Jesuit seminary. He later attended the University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 1961 before earning a J.D. at Yale Law School in 1964. Karl Marx would have been be proud. But let’s not forget, it’s not just the lower 1/3 who is footing a tax bill to cover a 179.5 billion dollar budget which is also meant to also cover 2.4 million government employees on “glorified welfare.”

Drug companies donated millions to California lawmakers before vaccine debate

This is the money that bribed the California legislators to pass the mandatory vaccination bill putting the lives, health and well being of hundreds of thousands of children in jeopardy.  This was never about the health of these children……it was about making money.  Never has there been such a clear cut example of how politicians sell their votes and the favors of their office while betraying the people they swore to represent.  Marti O

A subplot to the vociferous debate over the student vaccination bill moving through California’s Capitol is opponents’ allegations that the effort reflects the influence of the pharmaceutical industry.

Critics of Senate Bill 277, which would eliminate the personal belief and religious exemptions for schoolchildren, accuse the measure’s supporters in the Legislature of doing the bidding of donors who make vaccines and other pharmaceuticals.

California Lawmakers Order First Audit of

State’s Judicial Oversight Agency in 56 Years

Request to Audit the Commission on Judicial Performance Was Passed at

Today’s Joint Legislative Audit Committee Hearing

SAN RAFAEL- In a unanimous vote from the consent calendar, members of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee in the California Legislature passed an historic request this morning to audit the California Commission on Judicial Performance for the first time since it was established in 1961. Since its inception, this small but powerful judicial oversight agency has operated in relative secrecy, until June of this year, when Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky’s lenient sentencing of Stanford University student rapist Brock Turner created a national outcry that unwittingly thrust the agency into the media spotlight.

“The Center for Public Integrity gave California an ‘F grade’ on its 2015 report card for judicial accountability, said Kathleen Russell, the executive director of the Center for Judicial Excellence. “California’s lack of judicial accountability is renowned, and it weakens the public’s trust in its judges,’ she continued, “so this audit is an important step toward creating a culture of accountability for our state’s nearly 2,000 judges.”

WATER WARS

1 Comment

Author Chuck Frank

Well water, in the photo, remains plentiful at Venetucci Farm, Colorado, but water law requires purchase of an almost equal amount of “allocated” water before they can pump. Sources for allocated water are becoming harder to find.

Since 1992, a systematic attack on agriculture and food production in the United States has been developing, however the West has bore the brunt of this highly purposeful agenda which began with President Clinton in 1993 and is currently being promoted in California by the courts and Governor Brown. Consequently, ranchers have had their long-existing grazing and water rights methodically stripped away on Federal land and now private lands as well. Agricultural interests have been relentlessly sued by environmental groups and then over-regulated by the government.

Here is an example:  The California State Water Board, recently invoked an emergency water allotment regulation without due process. Since January 2015 major changes have been made in the State of California with regard to private wells and ground water. There is now a new move by Governor Brown who recently signed a bill that changed water laws in the fall of 2014, which undermines the people’s property rights where private wells all over the state, will begin to be metered wirelessly by satellite. It is foreseen that the next step will eventually be mandated flow meters on pipelines coming from lakes, canals, creeks and rivers.

Already, state water agencies and/or community water districts have begun to implement allotment controls which allows the monitoring of well water meters and includes the use of fines and enforcement. I am familiar with someone in Northern California that was recently forced by P.G.& E. to put in a smart meter on his new well, and yes, it was mandated.

If local government takes this a step further and mandates flow meters on irrigation pipelines coming from a variety of water sources, there will very well be a limit to the amount of water that may be taken. What is now transpiring more and more is a rogue and unconstitutional government that is on a mission to monitor and control water locally and this fact is already happening in other states. Presently, broad government overreach, in matters of personal needs, such as food, water, shelter, & electricity, is off the charts. And let’s not forget about the other issues such as saving the frogs and toads by eradicating thousands of trout in the Sierras. There are thousands of other “endangered” species that are all part of a massive, decades old agenda that includes a tidal wave of lost rights and jobs.

Regarding the SB 277 referendum petition

1 Comment

_______________________________________________________________

Regarding the SB 277 referendum petition that is being promoted as a way to ‘repeal’ the mandatory vaccines law recently signed by Jerry Brown, there is much more to be known Vaccine-Babythan what the petitioners are telling people. This referendum is meant to put SB 277 on the ballot for a public vote – in a state where 82% of the population is PRO vaccine!

From an article on the (state) constitutionality of the law entitled: SB277 Opponents: Why Hold a Referendum on an Unconstitutional Law?:

“If a law is unconstitutional, why hold a referendum on it? The constitution is meant to prevent the passage of laws that infringe on individual rights, even when such laws have support of 99% of the population. With 82% of Californians supporting SB277 which aims to revoke vaccine exemptions, a referendum will not strike down the law. Instead, the referendum will give rise to the perception that opponents view the law as constitutional when it is not.” http://www.autisminvestigated.com/sb277-unconstitutional/

SB 277 needs to go to the courts – with the right attorneys, of course.

The article referred to above also states:

“As long as a referendum is in the works, however, such lawsuits may not happen. People will wrongly believe that opponents view SB277 as constitutional for organizing a popular vote on it, and an overwhelming vote in favor of SB277 is likely. Unlike judges, the majority of constituents will not have the chance to hear cases against SB277… “

The referendum also weakens the recall effort that is currently in the works. That recall should have the support of all of us as it will get the message to representatives that we are not happy with their job performance, and hopefully it will help prevent the future passing of similar bills.  http://sb277recalls.com/status-of-sb277-recalls/

There were many people who fought against the passing of the bill by showing up and sharing their reasons why before the legislators. This petition will turn the effort of all those people into a waste of their time.

It’s important to know that SB 277 is just the beginning of the implementation of a huge mandatory vaccine movement. Please take time to research this:

Decade of Vaccines ― Global Vaccine Action Plan 2011-2020
http://www.who.int/immunization/global_vaccine_action_plan/DoV_GVAP_2012_2020/en/

In alignment with that is the US Health and Human Services plan:

Healthy People 2020 Immunization-related Objectives http://www.hhs.gov/nvpo/vacc_plan/2010-Plan/appendix1.pdf

One of the globalist’s favorite tools used in manipulating us to help further their agenda is playing on people’s fear and anger. This is why it’s so important to become educated in depth of the NWO’s Future Earth (A21) plans.  This type of ‘REaction’ of the people is exactly what they’re looking for. This referendum seems to fit into the plan nicely.

I strongly recommend that all Californian’s do NOT sign this petition. Let the process that’s in place to protect us be used and let the courts get involved. Also, unseat the people who voted for the bill.
