Evidence of FBI Corruption

Here is a reprise of Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge standoff instigated by the unjust re-sentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond after they had already served time for a conviction that should never have happened. A bunch of ranchers from all over the Western U.S. came as a protest militia against the unjust actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). There were a few leaders of this rancher militia but the few headlines that made into the MSM placed Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan as the faces of BLM resistance. Ammon and Ryan were fresh off a successful standoff with their father Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

Here’s a rehash of the Hammonds’ BLM difficulties:

According to an October 7, 2015 press release from the Obama Department of Justice, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, both residents of Diamond, Oregon in Harney County, were sentenced to five years in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken for arsons they committed on federal lands. 
The men were charged nearly a decade after the first fire and five years after the second.

Oregon Live reports on the fires:

The Hammonds' run-ins with the government began in 1999, when Steven Hammond started a fire that escaped onto U.S. Bureau of Land Management territory. The intent of the fire was to burn off juniper and sagebrush that hindered the growth of grass for their cattle.

BLM employees reminded Steven Hammond that although his family leased public land for grazing, he couldn't burn it without a permit. But in September 2001, the Hammonds started another fire. This one ran off their property on Steens Mountain, consumed 139 acres of public land and took the acreage out of production for two growing seasons, according to court papers.

Then in August 2006, lightning sparked several fires near the spot where the Hammonds grew their winter feed. Steven Hammond set a back-burn to thwart the advancing flames, and it burned across about an acre of public land, according to federal court records.


First, both men were sentenced in 2012 by now-retired U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan, following the trial. Steven received one year and a day in prison for setting fires in 2001 and 2006. Dwight got 3 months for his 2001 involvement. Hogan did not believe the men had malicious intent to be labeled as terrorists under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, even though he sentenced them to jail for the time he did.


Both men served their sentences and were released. Now, the feds have appealed those sentences and want the mandatory minimum five-year sentence imposed on the men, and so they appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who agreed with the feds that the judge ruled illegally. However, now they are wanting to label the Hammonds as terrorists under the 1996 law in order to put them back in jail.

... READ ENTIRETY (Bigger Than Bundy Ranch: Militia put on Level 2 Alert to Defend Oregon Ranchers against Tyrannical Feds Who Label Them Terrorists; By TIM BROWN; Freedom Outpost; 11/24/17)

NOW, after this rehash and couple it with the Obama Leftist corrupt regime which pushed much of the BLM land grabbing and rancher persecution; there are HUGE indications that the FBI has become so inculcated with Obama’s Leftist swamp, that they are severely a part of the problem to devastate the property rights of Ranchers.  

Can you say, Communist redistribution in favor of State management?

SHERIFF BACKS CLAIMS OF FBI-LAWBREAKING IN OREGON STANDOFF
Documentary-makers release more evidence that raises questions

June 29, 2017




In a stunning development a year after the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, where two-dozen armed supporters gathered to protest the courts’ extension of sentences for two ranchers, a sheriff has backed claims of FBI misbehavior.

The declaration came from Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson just as FBI agent W. Joseph Astarita was pleading not guilty to three counts of making false statements and two counts of obstruction of justice in federal court in Portland, Oregon.

The FBI agent was accused of firing at the protesters, then picking up shell casings to conceal that fact and lying to investigators.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon said Astarita falsely stated he had not fired his weapon during the attempted arrest of protester LaVoy Finicum, who was shot dead by another officer during the incident, “when he knew he had in fact fired his weapon.”

“Astarita also knowingly engaged in misleading conduct toward Oregon State Police officers by failing to disclose that he had fired two rounds during the attempted arrest,” the statement said.

Nelson said, as the Washington Times reported, that the actions by “multiple members of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team” had “damaged the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession, which makes me both disappointed and angry.”


Nelson said he told Justice Department and FBI officials, including now-acting Director Andrew McCabe, over a year ago about “possible criminal conduct” by some involved FBI Hostage Rescue Team agents.

And while the case against Astarita is in court, new evidence also is arising from the makers of an acclaimed documentary about the incident.

WND reported earlier on the armed standoff that has been variously described by opponents as “militia terrorism” and by defenders as rebellion against government tyranny.

The 41-day standoff ended in mass arrests after law enforcement fatally shot one of the occupiers.

The documentary is “American Standoff,” and while it aired previously on DirecTV, it can now be viewed in its entirety at this website. Among the people interviewed in the documentary is best-selling author and WND Vice President David Kupelian.

The “American Standoff” story starts with Dwight and Steven Hammond, Oregon ranchers who were controversially convicted and sentenced for setting a controlled land-management fire on their property that went out of control onto federal land. But after they served their sentences and were released, a judge – at a federal prosecutor’s insistence – ordered them back into court, where they were sentenced to further time in prison under an anti-terrorism law, even though there was no evidence presented that the ranchers had planned or engaged in terrorism in any way.

Sympathetic ranchers and others – encouraged by the federal government’s stand-down from a previous armed confrontation in Nevada two years earlier on the land of rancher Cliven Bundy – protested the new injustice and ended up staging an armed occupation of the refuge.

They succeeded in keeping federal officers at bay until they were finally taken into custody when police staged a highly dangerous highway stop of vehicles carrying the protesters and shot two men.

Ryan Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, was injured, while LaVoy Finicum was killed.

Eventually, seven of the others who were arrested were acquitted of federal charges related to the standoff. The feds even dismissed charges against a self-described independent broadcaster, Peter Santilli, who documented the occupation near Burns, Oregon, but was accused by prosecutors of being part of the protest group.

However, one of the FBI agents was charged with serious infractions of the law for the final confrontation. So far, Astarita is the only FBI agent to be indicted.

In addition to the feature-length “American Standoff” documentary, director Josh Turnbow and his film-making crew have now produced a series of “Aftermath” short video segments that have been posted online.

In the first, Jeanette Finicum, the widow of LaVoy Finicum, explains how the government, after killing her husband, also canceled the lease she needed to continue her family’s ranching operation.

She said she has lawyers fighting to restore the lease.

And she said a wrongful death case is inevitable against the government after a certain legal time period passes.

She insists her husband had his hands in the air and was surrendering but “was murdered.”

“He was mowed down in cold blood.”

Then, the video explains, the federal agents were “caught on camera, picking up casings before the forensic team arrived at the site of the shooting.”

Also, the video shows, Finicum’s gun, which he reportedly had been reaching for, wasn’t found for eight hours after the shooting.

“How many people tended to his body without finding it?” the video asks.

Turnbow told WND the “Aftermath” series continues the stories of people affected by the standoff.


In addition to conducting in-depth interviews with nearly everyone involved on all sides of the conflict, Turnbow said he tapped WND’s managing editor, David Kupelian, to offer a journalist’s perspective and analysis.

“I think Josh Turnbow did a terrific job in ‘American Standoff,'” said Kupelian, “not just in fairly and sensitively presenting all sides of a complex and troubling situation, but in telling a riveting, deeply thought-provoking true story about today’s America.”

Kupelian said the documentary “captures the classic modus operandi of an oppressive government: Perpetrate injustice, provoking widespread public outrage, which always includes a small number of people who seriously overreact and, however well-meaning, do something illegal or irresponsible – and then portray them as the real problem, or in this case as ‘criminals’ and ‘terrorists.'”

He said the main provocation in the story was “convicting two Oregon cattle ranchers, a father and son team whose controlled burn on their own property had gotten out of control and migrated onto federal land, with arson under an anti-terrorism statute that mandates a minimum five-year prison sentence.”

“Even the presiding judge said such a severe and unjust sentence would ‘shock the conscience.’ Well, it did shock the conscience of a lot of other ranchers – and the Malheur standoff was the result,” he said.


Turnbow said he would like to find out what really happened and consider what the outcome should have been, especially with regard to the still-imprisoned ranchers serving a five-year “terrorism” sentence.

“We should be talking about it,” Turnbow says.

The larger issue at hand – federal control over land in the American West – continues to loom large.

The federal government is the largest landowner in the Rocky Mountain and Western states, owning contiguous parcels of millions of acres.

Conflicts between ranchers, who in some instances have owned and worked their land for generations, and a federal government seemingly always hungry for more, are common.

President Trump’s recent executive order to review the possibility of shrinking the boundaries of federal monuments could help defuse the longstanding tensions between America’s ranchers and the government.

Dem Canova Champions Truth about Rich Murder

John R. Houk
© June 29, 2017

It is my belief that Seth Rich’s murder is significant enough to keep following. Rich’s murder suspiciously occurred after he was suspected as being the secret whistleblower that released DNC emails to Wikileaks (NOT the Russia Fake News) that demonstrated inherent Democratic Party corruption ensuring Crooked Hillary won the Dem nomination over Bernie Sanders.



Some insights about Seth Rich. He was a Bernie supporter which means he was probably even more Marxist in ideology than Crooked Hillary. That which makes Rich’s murder significant is the reputation of the Clintons in destroying lives that threaten the Clinton image personally and legally.

Hence, when I run into a story about Seth Rich that adds more narrative to the young man’s murder is something I run with. Alicia Powe writing for WND is going with a story about Tim Canova running against Debbie Wasserman Schultz within the Dem Party for her District nomination for Congress.

The significance of the Canova-dethrone run against Schultz is that she was exposed as being front and center in rigging the Crooked Hillary nomination. AND Canova is focusing on the lack of a proper police investigation by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) of Seth Rich’s murder.

If you primarily read, listen or watch Mainstream Media (MSM); you may not be aware the MPD is pushing the theory that Rich met his demise in a botched street robbery that had no witnesses and nothing – as in no available valuables whatsoever – was taken. AND Seth Rich was taken alive to a hospital reportedly on the road to recovery yet died mysteriously in the hospital bed.

Does this sound like a botched robbery to you?

In full disclosure, Canova like murder victim Seth Rich was a Bernie Sanders supporter. Meaning again he is another Dem that will lean way to the Left of Crooked Hillary or Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Ergo, if Canova overcomes the Leftist Dem Establishment and defeats Schultz, it will still not be good for America for another Marxist-Socialist to beat out the Republican nominee in the same Florida District.

NEVERTHELESS, any focus on exposing the truth behind Seth Rich’s murder will be a good thing.

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ CHALLENGER: PROBE SETH RICH MURDER
'I know millions of people ... just want to know what happened in this investigation'

June 28, 2017


WASHINGTON – Any American who cares about the rule of law should be demanding the truth about the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, says Tim Canova, a Democratic law professor who is challenging former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her congressional seat in 2018.

Canova has been slammed by left-leaning media outlets for calling attention to the unusual circumstances surrounding the July 10, 2016, murder of Rich, the DNC voter-expansion data director who is rumored to have leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

“There should be a thorough investigation of what happened,” Canova told WND. “I know millions of people are asking the same question – they just want to know what happened in this investigation. That’s really all I am guilty of, making that plea for a thorough transparent investigation.”

He continued: “Whether we are talking about Seth Rich or anyone else, if you believe in the rule of law, you should want to apprehend people who commit these types of crimes, and I say that without speculating about who did it. I am grateful [WND] is looking into it.”


Canova’s 2018 opponent, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., served as DNC chairwoman until emails were made public by WikiLeaks revealing that under her leadership the DNC collaborated to undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign.


Unsolved murder of Seth Rich

As WND has reported, Rich, 27, had accepted a position with Hillary Clinton’s campaign just before his death. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described the murder as a “botched robbery.”

Private investigators have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of Democratic National Committee emails released on the eve of the party’s presidential nominating convention last July. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton, led to the resignation of Wasserman Schultz. On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.



Also as WND has reported, former detective Rod Wheeler was initially hired by Rich’s parents through a third party to find their son’s killer. Wheeler alleges former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazille contacted the Metropolitan Police Department demanding to know why he was “snooping” after Wheeler began investigating Rich’s murder. As a result, he said, law-enforcement authorities are now refusing to provide him with more details about the case.

Wheeler and another source also told WND that the family’s spokesman, Brad Bauman – a Democratic political crisis consultant – was “assigned” to the family by the DNC. Bauman denies the DNC hired him to represent the Rich family, calling the claim “patently 100 percent false.”

As WND reported, the total reward for solving Rich’s murder currently stands at approximately a half-million dollars. However, the DNC has offered no reward for information leading to the arrest of the murderer of its own young staffer. Instead, the DNC honored its murdered employee by dedicating a bike rack outside its headquarters to Rich’s memory.

Watch as WND asks locals for their thoughts on Seth Rich murder and investigation:

Media, critics pounce with ‘conspiracy’ label

Establishment media have ignored recent revelations concerning Rich’s case. The little coverage of the investigation has been devoted to dismissing speculation surrounding Rich’s murder as “conspiracy.” And Canova has been ridiculed for speaking out about the unsolved crime.

In a DailyKos article headlined, “Democrat pushing hateful Seth Rich conspiracy theory to run against Wasserman Schultz again,” Jeff Singer wrote, “Rich’s parents have repeatedly begged people to stop dragging their son through the mud to advance their own agenda, and we can only hope that Canova will listen and stop spreading these lies.”

After weighing in on social media about the Seth Rich murder mystery, Canova quickly became the target of widespread criticism.




­čî╣ (@ZippersNYC) June 24, 2017




“I Facebook live-streamed walking past his murder scene. I happened to be in Washington at the time,” Canova told WND. “People objected. They thought I was trying to use his murder for political reasons, that I was disregarding the feelings of Seth Rich’s family. So I took down the video. It’s others, my opponents, who want to politicize the Seth Rich murder.”

He continued: “I think the criminal justice system has to be able to work without political interference. I cross my fingers and hope that the Seth Rich family and others are pushing for a complete investigation.”



“The mainstream media, they are looking to divide the progressive left,” Canova said. “They are looking to demonize and discredit. They try to discredit, and they engage in their own conspiracy theorizing. I’m very unconcerned with what the mainstream media are saying on any given day at this point. I am reaching the voters, where the voters live and where the voters work, and we are talking to the about real issues, the issues they care about.

“Ordinary people,” he continued, “don’t really give a damn about what the mainstream media are saying. There is a reason why the media are so low in digits in approval ratings. They are lower than Congress at this point.”


‘My politics were very aligned with Sanders’

Canova told WND he has been a longtime supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

“In 2011, I was appointed by Sen. Bernie Sanders to a select advisory committee on reforming the Federal Reserve, so for years I had been doing a lot of work on the Federal Reserve and other financial institutions like the International Monetary Fund,” he said. “My politics were very aligned with Sanders.”

Sanders, then a presidential candidate, endorsed Canova, stating in May 2016 that “[Canova’s] views are much closer to mine than to Wasserman Schultz’s.”


After Canova became outspoken about Seth Rich’s unsolved murder, Sanders declined to endorse the law professor in his second Democratic bid for the Florida seat.

Sanders told the Miami Herald: “I have no idea about Tim Canova, I honestly don’t. I know nothing about Tim Canova.”

Leading conservatives, including Fox News host Sean Hannity and best-selling author Ann Coulter, argue that Democrats’ ongoing probe of the Trump administration’s alleged collusion with Russia, supposedly to rig the election by hacking DNC emails, will be derailed completely if Rich is proven to have leaked the DNC emails.

Canova concurs with that assessment, arguing that Democrats are hurting themselves by focusing on Russia.

“I am not one to think that the Russian focus is a productive one. I think it a very counterproductive one for the Democratic Party,” he said. “A lot of folks want to see more hard evidence if that’s what happened. Even taking their narrative as the truth, if the Russians can hack into our election systems, anyone can hack into our election system. And we need to focus a lot on election integrity.”

He continued: “I don’t have the time to focus on any of this Russia stuff. I am running for office, and I am focused on constituents, who are every day [working to] making ends meet, and worried out of their minds about their job prospects, the job prospects of their children, the health care for their aging parents. These are real issues that real people care about.”

DNC and Wasserman Schultz sued for election ‘rigging’

As WND reported, the DNC and Wasserman Schultz are currently facing a class-action lawsuit filed by attorneys Elizabeth and Jared Beck on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters who claim they sought to rig the election.

On June 13, lawyers and plaintiffs suing the DNC told the U.S. District Court in Florida that they’re being harassed with threatening messages and “freaky” encounters and they fear for their safety – particularly in the wake of the mysterious and unsolved murder of Rich – but the court denied their request for protection.

On June 1, the Becks filed a motion in court claiming they received a voice-modulated phone call from a number matching Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ office.


One of the plaintiffs, Angela Monson, claimed in an affidavit to have awakened to her porch door open. She said both of her computers had been moved and showed evidence of tampering.

Similarly, Canova, who lost his 2016 Democratic primary bid against Wasserman Schultz, alleged June 17 in a now-deleted tweet that his computer was hacked and an electrical surge had fried both of his computers, after he announced an official rematch against her.

Canova Tweet: Tonight I announced my 2018 candidacy

“Announced last night 8 p.m. run vs. @DWSTweets again,” Canova wrote, implying the disgraced former DNC chair may have been linked to the alleged attack. “At 2 a.m. my computer was attacked & surge protector fried. Same happened last campaign.”

Wasserman Schultz ‘put finger on the scale to clear field for Hillary

As a longtime Sanders supporter and an outspoken advocate of election integrity, Canova told WND he was infuriated by the foul play that took place within the Democratic Party during its primary.

“It became increasingly clear that as chair of the DNC, [Wasserman Schultz] was putting her fingers on the scale to try to undermine the Sanders campaign and to clear the field for Hillary Clinton,” he said. “That aggravated me. I had already been a Bernie Sanders supporter from early on when he got in the race. As it became increasingly clear that Wasserman Schultz wasn’t just [failing to represent] her constituents but was really doing an atrocious job as DNC chair, undermining democracy within the Democratic Party, it made the urgency of challenging her that much more acute.”

Canova said Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s record of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from corporations, while doing nothing to help her constituents, compelled his candidacy.

“During the course of her career, she had taken millions of dollars from big Wall Street banks, fossil fuels and other big corporate interests.

“She took money from private prison corporations, and was pushing for a private prison in our district. Their district has a lot of problems, especially economic problems. Low income, out of work, under employed – and it’s never been on her agenda. It’s been a very corporate agenda,” he explained. “So we started to look around for someone who would challenge her. No one else would, and I did. I am continuing to for those reasons. I think our district needs representation.”

Canova said he’s disappointed not only in Wasserman Schultz, but in the entire Democratic establishment.

“When I ran against Wasserman Schultz, I was running against the entire establishment, the entire time,” he said. “My beef is not just a personal one with Wasserman Schultz. My campaign is not just about replacing a single congresswoman but the party’s politics. [I’m] hoping it’s not too late to reform this party.”

Canova said he believes he has a better chance of winning the primary in 2018 now that Hillary Clinton is not running as the party’s nominee for president.

To ensure Democratic Party establishment doesn’t rig the election against him, as it’s accused of doing to Sanders, Canova said he plans to pay for a recount, “no matter the election outcome.”

“Certainly, millions of Americans have concerns about the fairness of elections and the way the ballots are counted,” he said. “Election integrity is an enormous issue for my campaign. Really, it should be an enormous issue nationwide right now.”

Canova argued that Wasserman Schultz is viewed as a liability, even among party insiders, after being forced to resign as DNC chair.

“This time, I am in early,” he said. “This time, she is not going to be in a Clinton White House or cabinet. And I am not so sure she can count on the same level of support even from the establishment. Nobody wants to be seen standing next to her and campaigning for her. It’s a different race.”

Speaking about Islam is Hate-Speech in Canada

Ask Wild Bill for America

By John R. Houk
© June 28, 2017



William Finlay - Wild Bill For America

European style hate-speech laws protecting the evils inherent in Islam have made it to the shores of the North American Continent; i.e. CANADA.

William Finlay, better known as Wild Bill for America, was arrested at a Canadian airport on his way to a speaking engagement accused of hate-speech towards Islam. World Coalition Against Islam invited Wild Bill to speak at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza called the “Patriotic Unity Mega Festival” about Islam and Sharia. Wild Bill had not even given a speech yet on Canadian soil.

Apparently, the arrest was based on a speech he had given in Jacksonville, Florida USA. Again apparently, Canadian hate-speech laws can be enforced as a criminal act for speech given outside the borders of Canada.

Below is the Youtube video of Wild Bill talking about his Canadian detainment followed by another video set in Florida that Canadian authorities based their hate-speech detainment. Then I found an awesome article about Wild Bill’s inhospitable treatment by the Canadian government at Fortress of Faith.

Canada Has Already Lost The Right Of Free Speech
American Arrested in Canada for Smuggling “Hate Speech”

June 27, 2017

An American was arrested at the airport in Canada for “Smuggling hate speech” on his iPad. William Finlay was invited to speak at a at an event at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza called the “Patriotic Unity Mega Festival” on Islam and Sharia Law. He was also fighting for freedom of speech. He was met at the airport by the police and his materials were taken from him as hate speech.

This is of special interest to me because the very same thing happened to us in our ministry about 3 or 4 years ago. My pastor was helping me by taking some of my DVDs to our dropshipper in Canada. He was detained at the border crossing and our materials were seized as hate speech. Later they returned the material without apology, but they did admit that the material was not “hate speech.”

William Finlay goes by the name, “Wild Bill for America.” He was a policeman for more than 20 years. He is a Christian, and he travels around proclaiming truth. His topic at the festival was titled “Preserving Your Freedom Of Speech, and Not Becoming Sharia Compliant.”

[Blog Editor: At this point Pierre Coovert places the Wild Bill video posted above entitled, “Smuggler Bill's Canada Blues”.]

This incident shows that freedom of speech is already dead in Canada. They will not allow anyone into their country who is concerned about organizations and religions, like Islam, that don’t want you to have freedom of speech. Those who stand for freedom against those who want to take away freedom, are considered hateful.

The day after this happened to us I did a broadcast on What if Muhammad came to the Canadian border, and the border police went through his materials the same way they are going through the material of Christians, would they find material that would incite people to kill those of another belief system? The answer is ABSOLUTELY YES! The Qur’an is full of such statements. The problem is, they are protecting Islam from scrutiny. They are trying to silence  people who are warning about what Islam really teaches. Those who show that Islam is a religion of hate and incitement to violence are the ones being targeted as hate mongers. Islam doesn’t just teach violence against unbelievers, it actually carries it out.

Somehow, those who are warning of the danger are the criminals, and those who are preaching and practicing violence are the “innocent victims.” We need to stand up against this because if we don’t we will wake up one day and find that all of our freedoms are gone. The first right we will lose is our freedom of speech, and before long we will find we have lost the right to practice our faith. If you are paying attention, you know that it has already started.

Many in the Pro-Life Movement are very aware this Dem Party Attorney General is a paid tool of Planned Parenthood (PP), the very baby-killing organization exposed as trafficking in baby parts (some of which were born alive than killed) illegally with research organizations.

Operation Rescue has acquired documents from the California AG Office showing that Planned Parenthood implying Becerra and PP need to have a meeting to strategize on litigation if the Trump Administration successfully defunds their abortion/murder machine. Operation Rescue also reports the California State Treasurer (State Treasurer John Chiang a Dem**) has already promised $20 million grant to PP in light of being defunded.

**John Chiang is one of many California Dems that hate everything President Trump:

“Resistance is very narrow, right? It’s a reactive agenda. It’s an abandonment of our greatest hopes and dreams,” Chiang, a 2018 Democratic candidate for governor, said during a seminar sponsored by UCR’s School of Public Policy.

So we should embrace, as Californians and as Americans, our legacy. This is a place where we are the cradle of imagination, of economic innovation, of upward social mobility, of trail-blazing ideas.

Chiang’s remarks come as California, where Democrats are politically dominant, is at odds with a GOP-controlled Congress and White House. (Resistance isn’t enough, California Treasurer John Chiang says in UC Riverside speech; By JEFF HORSEMAN; The Press-Enterprise; PUBLISHED 4/19/17 7:05 pm – UPDATED 4/20/17 6:54 am)

Chiang’s “resistance” is another example of collusion with PP to keep the baby-killing/baby-parts-trafficking industry in full bloom, why? It is an example of what the Left – particularly Dems – false claim that Leftist values are American Values. NOT THE CASE!**

This collusion between the California AG and probably a large chunk  of California Democrats in general has to break some State laws and I’d be surprised if it doesn’t break Federal laws.

Just like the National Dems involved in illegal actions, these California Dems need to be investigated and if/when found guilty – LOCKED UP!

Planned Parenthood Desperately Sought Meeting with CA AG to Keep Blood Money for Abortions Flowing

Sacramento, CA — New documents obtained by Operation Rescue reveal Planned Parenthood’s attempt to use the State of California as a tool to challenge any potential defunding in the current efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Operation Rescue received the records from the Office of the California Attorney General as the result of a public records request.

On March 17, 2017, Celinda Vazquez, Vice President of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, sent an e-mail marked “High” importance to Attorney General Xavier Bacerra [sic], that included a letter from Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California requesting a meeting to discuss “potential litigation in the event of defunding Planned Parenthood.”

The letter, signed by Kathy Kneer, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, and Vazquez seemed to summon Bacerra [sic] to a meeting. The letter stated:

We write to request a meeting to discuss the potential litigation in the event of defunding Planned Parenthood and the repeal of the American Health Care Act, including the prohibition on abortion coverage.

The eight Planned Parenthood affiliate CEOs from across the state would be included in this meeting.

For scheduling purposes, please contact Lauren Jeglinski at (email address).

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

“This letter did not seem to give Bacerra [sic] much of a choice on whether he would attend the meeting. It is obvious that Planned Parenthood is the one really running the State of California,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It is clear that Planned Parenthood is desperately attempting to preserve their tax funding in any way possible, especially their abortion funding through Medicaid reimbursements, which is a huge cash cow for them.”

Perhaps not coincidently, California’s treasurer announced on June 17, 2017, that Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California would receive a $20 million grant in light of Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

“Any lawsuit brought by California against the Congressional defunding of Planned Parenthood is simply political pandering to the abortion cartel without the best interests of the public in mind,” said Newman.

In the past 18 months, Operation Rescue has documented 51 medical emergencies requiring emergency treatment and hospitalization at Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide, including the death of at least one patient, Cree Erwin-Shepard, who died from a botched abortion she received last year from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

“Maimed women and dead babies are the true business of Planned Parenthood, and it time that we, as taxpayers, stop propping up this failing abortion business with our hard-earned tax dollars, which could be of real help to women if redirected to legitimate health providers,” said Newman.
