The Cannabis Catch-Up: New Weed Political Action Committee in Town

A newly formed political action committee is pushing to get a recreational weed market bill passed into Vermont law early enough in the upcoming legislative session to allow communities to discuss the legislation at Town Meeting Day in March 2020.
Founded by Geoffrey Pizzutillo and Jennifer Dye, the Vermont Growers Association wants state representatives to work off the framework of S.54, a cannabis regulation bill that passed the Senate last session but never came to a vote in the House. Eli Harrington, a lobbyist and cannabis consultant working with the PAC, thinks the group can convince enough lawmakers — and, they hope, Gov. Phil Scott — to get the measure across the finish line.
Harrington admitted that the organization’s proposed timeline is tight but said Town Meeting Day is an important deadline. The group is currently running a policy survey on its site.
“To make this thing work, it’s got to work for each community,” Harrington said. “We think it’s important for people to start the dialogue of, ‘Are we going to allow retail? If so, where? What kind of zoning is required?’”
Some communities are already passing outright bans. The Clarendon selectboard recently voted to prohibit both recreational and medical marijuana dispensaries from opening in town, following in the footsteps of both Newport and Dover. Meanwhile, Killington is considering a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.
The first steps for groups like Harrington’s is to get a recreational sales bill passed. He thinks the Vermont Growers Association can offer valuable input. Harrington pointed to the regulations surrounding Vermont’s medical marijuana dispensaries as an example of what not to do. He called the recreational market a chance to “reset.”
The group emphasizes allowing enough growers to participate in the new business sector so there’s sufficient opportunity — and product — to go around.
“It’s an ambitious timeline, but the plant’s been around for 5,000 years, and it’s been effectively regulated and sold in these United States for quite a while,” Harrington said. “We have the information, we have the capacity and I think we have the will. What’s important is that we don’t screw it up.”

How Facebook (FB) is influencing the 2018 Election by censoring Anti-Globalist users for baseless accusations of “hate speech”

Summary:

This morning, (10/09/2018), I found my FB account suspended for 30 days (right past the November Election), for the baseless accusation of “hate speech.” And it was over a post I made nearly a year ago. It was not “hate speech” though it was an actual comment that I had made. Unlike earlier FB suspensions it is not just that I cannot comment, or post articles, for 30 days. I cannot even see my Facebook homepage or even read other peoples posts.

As you will see FB is censoring our free speech while offering no timely appeal. In effect FB is violating our 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech by taking the role of “judge, jury and executioner.” And as you will read there appears to be no timely method by which I can defend myself against this false accusation of “hate speech.” And now that FB has a user based of 3 Billion — 10 times the population of the United States — these violations of our free speech must be addressed.

Over the past several years I have written over 240 Facebook Notes that would position me as an Anti-Globalist which is my right. And just as Justice Kavanaugh was rightfully angry about accusations of “rape” and “sexual misconduct — without any corroborating evidence — I am similarly angry about being accused of “hate speech.” And I even angrier that my account has been suspended and there appears to be no way to challenge the accusation.

Why is it that we have endured 2 years of accusation of “Russian Influence” — over our elections — when Facebook is also trying to influence the elections by censoring those of us opposed to a Globalist Agenda of Open Borders, Gun Confiscation and so much more. Facebook has been stuffing our feeds with Open Borders propaganda, through FWD, for years. More recently they are stuffing our feeds with globalist propaganda through “Facebook Watch” — which now use videos to influence public opinion.

This is not about me. This is about the mass censorship of anything that challenges to Globalist Agenda: an agenda that FB wholeheartedly supports through its mass posts and the censorship of those (like me) that question it. What this is reallyy about is Mass Censorship of our 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech. This should concern everyone.

The Details of my 30 Day Suspension from Facebook:

So this morning I went to my Facebook Page. Instead of seeing my FB Page I found that I was suspended for the unfounded accusation of “hate speech.” I am completely cut off from even seeing my FB page — not just from commenting on posts appearing on my page.

Here is what appeared on my FB page:

This post goes against our Community Standards
Only you can see this post because it goes against our standards on hate speech.

{This was the post in question — from basically a year ago}

KR: Actually they look at it much like the Greeks and Roman’s did: the guy getting it in the ass is gay, the guy sticking it in the ass is not. Of course we all know the truth of the matter: they’re all a bunch of faggots. LOL.

We just saw a reminder of this in Dearborn about a month ago where a young boy was sexually hazed by other Muslim boys at Fordson High School. Thankfully the students protested this which is good. What is not good is that as Islam becomes more entrenched within a “host country” this shit just gets worse and worse in proportion to their numbers Vs the non-Muslim host populations.

This temporary block will last 30 days, and you won’t be able to post on Facebook until it’s finished.
If you post something that goes against our standards again, your account will be blocked for another 30 days.
Please keep in mind that people who repeatedly post things that aren’t allowed on Facebook may have their accounts permanently disabled.

This was a response to an article that appeared in the Detroit Free Press, nearly a year ago, where a High School Student was sexually hazed at Fordson High School whose student population is about 95% Middle Eastern and also about 95% Muslim. I know the post was a year old because I looked up the article.

=====
Dearborn schools investigate alleged hazing at Fordson High School
Hasan Dudar, Detroit Free Press Published 9:48 a.m. ET Oct. 13, 2017
https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/wayne/2017/10/13/dearborn-schools-hazing-fordson-high-school/760964001/
=====

Having grown up in Dearborn this really concerned me. The vast majority of Muslims are great people. But in recent years we are seeing evidence of more Muslim Refugees moving in as evidence by a minority of women in Burka’s — full body coverings. I have lived in Dearborn all my life — nearly 60 years — and I had NEVER seen a woman in a full Burka till about 3 years ago. I find this concerning as it is evidence of new arrivals that are much more “orthodox” than the Lebanese Muslim population which arrived as early as the 1880’s.

Are we all Kavanaugh’s now? Are we to endure being accused of “hate speech” without ANY recourse? Is it really OK for FB to become our judge, jury and executioner with absolutely no recourse? Because that is what is happening.

Right after I found myself blocked I found a contact number for FB and made a call which was answered by a male that works in India. He said someone would call back around 8:30 and someone actually did call back about 30 minutes later. But when I picked up the phone there was dead silence despite me saying repeatedly “is there anybody out there?” After about 30″ the phone disconnected. I called again [(888)226-0016] a few minutes after 9:00 AM and, once again, they said someone would contact me. It is nearly 10:45 AM and no called so I called them back.

Now it gets weird. The FB Tech asks me for my email address. Fine. Then he sends this to my email address — I suppose to confirm the accuracy of the address.

=====

Next I reiterate that I WAS NOT HACKED. THAT WAS MY POST FROM A YEAR AGO. CHANGING MY FB PASSWORD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY FAKE “30 DAY” SUSPENSION FOR “ALLEGED” HATE SPEECH.

So next he asked me to open a new tab and type in “www.helpme.net” and here is the text from that webpage:

=====
Be cautious if you receive unsolicited requests to access your computer.
Only join support sessions with people you recognize and trust. Report abuse

=====

So I read the text and said to him:

“Why would I give y
ou access to my Laptop, when what you really need to do is withdraw the “hate speech accusation” and let me access my Facebook Page. I see no reason for you to have direct access to my PC. Why would you need to do that?”

There was a brief pause on the line. Then he hung up on me. It is now 12:30 PM and I have not received any follow up call. So at the moment my right to free speech remains violated by FB. I am not happy about this.

Defending my post from a year ago:

=====
{This was the post in question — from basically a year ago}

KR: Actually they look at it much like the Greeks and Roman’s did: the guy getting it in the ass is gay, the guy sticking it in the ass is not. Of course we all know the truth of the matter: they’re all a bunch of faggots. LOL.

We just saw a reminder of this in Dearborn about a month ago where a young boy was sexually hazed by other Muslim boys at Fordson High School. Thankfully the students protested this which is good. What is not good is that as Islam becomes more entrenched within a “host country” this shit just gets worse and worse in proportion to their numbers Vs the non-Muslim host populations.
=====

(1) Why suddenly has FB accused me of hate speech for something I posted about a year ago? I know it was about a year ago because I was responding to an article that appeared in the Detroit Free Press in October of 2017. Is this an attempt to influence the 2018 Mid-term elections by censoring those of us that see the only meaningful “binary choice” is to support republican candidates in November? And unlike Russian influence allegations the proof is right in front of our eyes.

(2) “Actually they (a minority of Muslim supremacists that nearly define the term “toxic masculinity”) look at it much like the Greeks and Roman’s did: the guy getting it in the ass is gay, the guy sticking it in the ass is not.”

The fact of the matter is the large influx of Libyan immigrants, into Europe, has resulted in a huge increase in the gang rape of Non-Muslim women. This has been well documented, from London to Stockholm, despite the denouncement by globalist media. That is why Hungary, Italy, England and France are electing those that want this stopped. It is also largely why Trump won in 2016 and why England voted for Brexit. People feel that they are being invaded by fighting age Muslim men that ARE committing atrocities against Non-Muslim Women.

And my comparison of these Muslim Supremacists to Greek pedophiles is also accurate:

=====
The ancient Greeks did not conceive of sexual orientation as a social identifier as modern Western societies have done. Greek society did not distinguish sexual desire or behavior by the gender of the participants, but rather by the role that each participant played in the sex act, that of active penetrator or passive penetrated.[6] This active/passive polarization corresponded with dominant and submissive social roles: the active (penetrative) role was associated with masculinity, higher social status, and adulthood, while the passive role was associated with femininity, lower social status, and youth.[6]

Homosexuality in ancient Greece
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexuality_in_ancient_Greece
=====

And Child Marriage, pederasty and homosexual rape are common in many Muslim Countries. By no means am I saying all Muslims engage in this. But facts are facts as this article reports:

=====
Some Muslims are fond of condemning western morality – alcoholism, nudity, premarital sex and homosexuality often being cited as examples. But Muslims do not have a monopoly on morality. In the west, child marriages and sex with children are illegal. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for many Muslim countries.

I recently saw the documentary on the Dancing Boys of Afghanistan. It exposed an ancient custom called “bacha bazi” (boy for play), where rich men buy boys as young as 11 from impoverished families for sexual slavery. The boys are dressed in women’s clothes and made to dance and sing at parties, before being carted away by the men for sex. Owning boys is considered a symbol of status and one former warlord boasted of having up to 3,000 boys over a 20-year period, even though he was married, with two sons. The involvement of the police and inaction of the government means this form of child prostitution is widespread.

The moral hypocrisy is outrageous in a country where homosexuality is not only strictly forbidden but savagely punished, even between two consenting adults. However, men who sodomise young boys are not considered homosexuals or paedophiles. The love of young boys is not a phenomenon restricted to Afghanistan; homosexual pederasty is common in neighbouring Pakistan, too. In my view, repression of sexuality and extreme gender apartheid is to blame.

Child marriage and pederasty are tolerated in Muslim societies where homosexuality is strictly condemned (Sat 24 Apr 2010)
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/apr/25/middle-east-child-abuse-pederasty
=====

So that is my defense against FB accusing me of hate speech.

I am not condeming all Muslims.
I am not racist or Islamaphobic —
as I do not condemn all Muslims on the transgressions of a few. Like Martin Luther King I do try to judge each individual by the content of their character.

But FB has no right to censor me for 30 days — past the Mid Term Election — because I bring up a few inconvenient facts.

(1) There are a minority of Muslim Men that rape young boys, but who do not see themselves as gay. Fact.

(2) Child Marriage, pederasty and homosexual rape are common in many Muslim Countries. Fact.

Suspending my FB account for 30 days over something I said a year ago is highly suspect. Why now? Why do I have no recourse to challenge the accusation?

I do understand why Kavanaugh was so angry when falsely accused of “rape” and “sexual misconduct.” And I am equally angry that FB is falsely accusing me of “hate speech” when that is not the case.

Instead of Russian influence in our elections what we really need to investigate, and resolve, is the attempts by Big Tech (Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube etc.) to influence the 2018 Mid-Term elections by censoring those of us that oppose their Globalist Agenda. Our republic cannot sustain itself if our 1st Amendment Rights continue to be under siege.

The very reason our founders made Free Speech — the first Amendment to the US Constitution — is because our republic is predicated on our right to freely discuss the issues of the day. If we continue to allow Globalist Big Tech to violate that right our republic is put in peril. The solution is obvious to me. All the Globalist Big Tech Platforms must be reduced to the status of utilities. And just like the phone utilities cannot censor what you say on the phone the Big Tech Platforms should no longer be able to censor what you say on thier platforms. There should be few exceptions and there must be a mechanism to quickly review and challenge any suspension from their platforms. If that does not occur soon it seems we either accept our slave status or revert to the 2nd Amendment. And I don’t EVER want to see it go there. It should not be necessary in a free society. But if Big Tech continues along this path there may be no real alternative. And that would be a sad day for our republic.

Let me emphasize our current plight with a quote from our first President, George Washington.

=====
“For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Sla
ughter.”

George Washington, address to the officers of the army, Newburgh, New York (March 15, 1783); reported in John C. Fitzpatrick, ed, The Writings of George Washington (1938), vol. 26, p. 225.

Real time updates.

I called FB again (1:15 PM) and the Indian Woman (Tech Support, Stockton CA) said someone would call me shortly.

1:30 PM
I attempt to login to FB and am now able to view my FB page. But when I click on “Like” to a comment I am blocked. So I can now see my page but cannot interact and get the following message.

This Feature is Temporarily Blocked
You recently posted something that violates Facebook policies, so you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature. For more information, visit the Help Center.

To keep from getting blocked again, please make sure you’ve read and understand Facebook’s Community Standards.
The block will be active for 29 days and 21 hours more.
If you think this doesn’t go against our Community Standards let us know.

I click on the “let us know” link and get the next message:

So I wrote in the following response:

“I was accused of “hate speech” this morning for a comment I made nearly a year ago. It is not hate speech and I demand to speak to someone to challenge the accusation. Please call me at (313) 274-7372 so we can discuss this issue.”

But when I hit the “Send” button I get the following message:

Could not process your request
We could not process your request. Please try again later.

I’m sorry but I have been trying to resolve this for the last 5 hours. The FB Techs hang up on me. And while I can see my FB page I am still suspended and unable to explain why this allegation of “hate speech” is an error.

In my 64 years I have never seen such an abridgment of our right to free speech. This should concern all of us. I have sent this message to a 3rd party so they can share it on FB. I encourage everyone that reads this article to repost this widely. What FB is doing is wrong and it must stop.

Free Speech is essential if we expect to continue to live in a Free Republic. This should concern everyone! Just saying.

New Jersey’s most notorious pothead has called himself “conviction proof.”

njweed op st

Long time Activist for Cannabis legalization and Human Rights,  Cancer patient, Author, Actor and Politician, was released Thursday from the Mercer County Jail, after having been incarcerated 447 days, since March of 2017.  He was acquitted of witness tampering in a Mercer County New Jersey Courtroom on Thursday, May 24th. 

Acting as his own Attorney the Jury found him “not guilty”.

There has been quite a few articles published in the media in New Jersey about the case.  As well he has quite a following on Facebook and other social media.  Various video’s and information is posted throughout his profile and I encourage you to view them and become familiar with the case.  It is these activist’s, the ones who go to Court and fight unfair charges brought upon them, that are fighting for our freedoms!  There are many of them out there.  Most are   never even heard of.  But it is our responsibility to see that the “real news” is shared with everyone so that the truth can be told about the Justice System as it stands today.  It must change!  #Jury Nullification is one way to do this.

Getting involved in Politics is another.  Ed Forchion is “still running for Mayor…”!

Above:  After the “not guilty” verdict!

Continuing on, Ed Forchion still has another trial and a Lawsuit pending to handle in the upcoming days and months, not to mention the Election in June.  All of this makes for quite a busy schedule.  Per information posted to his profile today he has retained a well known Attorney to help in the process. 

Forchion has retained another attorney, Mario Williams, a managing partner out of the Virginia-based firm Nexus Caridades.  He was put in touch with the attorney through reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter, who championed Forchion’s cause.  Williams is expected to represent him in both federal lawsuits, part of a bigger fightback campaign the marijuana activist has launched to exonerate himself in his upcoming trial and restore his name.  LINK

…Mario is Mario Williams, an Atlanta-based civil rights attorney who took a winding road to become one of the nation’s foremost legal advocates for those in need. The bulk of his cases focus on civil-rights violations, police misconduct, prisoners’ rights, and wrongful incarcerations. LINK

This quote and link explain the latest lawsuit pending.

Already hit with drug charges following a raid on his downtown business, Forchion’s lawsuit complained he was illegally and unconstitutionally being detained at the Mercer County Correction Center on witness tampering charges.  In a phoned jailhouse interview with The Trentonian, Forchion laid out tactics for how he will avoid convictions that could send him to prison for a long time. He has filed an ethics complaint against Mercer County Judge Anthony Massi, who presided over his case. LINK

Long time Activist for Cannabis legalization and Human Rights,  Cancer patient, Author, Actor and Politician, was released Thursday from the Mercer County Jail, after having been incarcerated 447 days, since March of 2017.  He was acquitted of witness tampering in a Mercer County New Jersey Courtroom on Thursday, May 24th. 

Acting as his own Attorney the Jury found him “not guilty”.

There has been quite a few articles published in the media in New Jersey about the case.  As well he has quite a following on Facebook and other social media.  Various video’s and information is posted throughout his profile and I encourage you to view them and become familiar with the case.  It is these activist’s, the ones who go to Court and fight unfair charges brought upon them, that are fighting for our freedoms!  There are many of them out there.  Most are   never even heard of.  But it is our responsibility to see that the “real news” is shared with everyone so that the truth can be told about the Justice System as it stands today.  It must change!  #Jury Nullification is one way to do this.

Getting involved in Politics is another.  Ed Forchion is “still running for Mayor…”!

I promised in april of 2016 that’d I’d whoop Prosecutor onofri’s ass. ( I’ve beat two of his minions) I ask that Onofri prosecute the remaining cases himself.

I’d like to talk about theBail Reform Act and the constitutionally unfair trial I was receiving despite the jury – rejecting the states false narrative used to create this vindictive prosecution.

I will be amending my current federal lawsuit ( forchion vs trenton, 3:16cv01339pgs) to add the malious police misconduct and prosecutorial vendetta in regards to the constitutional detention I just suffered the last 16months

Forchion has retained another attorney, Mario Williams, a managing partner out of the Virginia-based firm Nexus Caridades.  He was put in touch with the attorney through reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter, who championed Forchion’s cause.  Williams is expected to represent him in both federal lawsuits, part of a bigger fightback campaign the marijuana activist has launched to exonerate himself in his upcoming trial and restore his name.  LINK

Already hit with drug charges following a raid on his downtown business, Forchion’s lawsuit complained he was illegally and unconstitutionally being detained at the Mercer County Correction Center on witness tampering charges.  In a phoned jailhouse interview with The Trentonian, Forchion laid out tactics for how he will avoid convictions that could send him to prison for a long time. He has filed an ethics complaint against Mercer County Judge Anthony Massi, who presided over his case. LINK

How the Globalists are Screwing the American People on Cannabis, Immigration and Much More

Image may contain: 1 person

Bruce Cain·Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Cannabis Policy

Over the last few years State governments have monopolized Cannabis production and distribution, reaping billions in annual revenue. Now they are ramping up raids on small home growers as these greedy bastards are out to capture every last dime of revenue. In my home state of Michigan we just found out that the revenue from Patient/Caregiver Cards are now going to be used to raid those that got Patient/Caregiver Cards.

==== Michigan agencies increase medical marijuana enforcement POSTED 7:52 PM, JANUARY 7, 2018, BY FOX 17 NEWS http://fox17online.com/2018/01/07/michigan-agencies-increase-medical-marijuana-enforcement/ =====

When I helped pass the 2008 Medical Marijuana Initiative the revenue was never supposed to be used in that way. They were also not supposed to share the Patient/Caregiver information with local law enforcement. Thanks to our legislature they betrayed us on both of these counts. Yep over the last 10 years our state legislators have slowly chipped away at the original initiative that passed by a landslide 63% of Michigan voters. So much for standing up for the will of the American People.

Then the other day I read where Colorado is going to add chemical adulterants to the weed to insure that they can capture every last dime of revenue.

===== How To Track Legal Pot: Colorado To Add Chemical Adulterants Published by Dan Drevin at January 14, 2018 https://marijuanapatients.org/track-legal-pot-colorado-add-chemical-adulterants/ =====

Am I the only one that has had enough of this crap? I’m currently recovering from a bout of the flu and I’m in no mood to get into Cannabis Policy today. But if you want my views on Cannabis Policy please read this essay which has been viewed nearly 1,000 times on Facebook. Suffice it to say I am not happy about the direction of Cannabis Policy in the US.

===== Why the Right to Grow Your Own Medical Cannabis Must Be Protected from “Tax, Regulate and Control” State Models BRUCE CAIN·TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 2017 https://www.facebook.com/notes/bruce-cain/why-the-right-to-grow-your-own-medical-cannabis-must-be-protected-from-tax-regul/1941658819193430/ =====

Immigration Policy

Where is the damn E-Verify. That is what I want to know.

I was way ahead of Trump. In 1996 I ran for US Congress saying we needed a 20 year moratorium on ALL immigration: Legal and Illegal. And as far as I’m concerned Trump can blow orange smoke up his own ass if E-Verify is not included. My other central plank (1996) was to allow adults to not just grow their own Cannabis, but to have the right to sell their overage untaxed. And that was 22 years ago that I ran for US Congress. I seem to be cursed with being about 20 years ahead of public opinion. But it appears the people have finally come up to speed. Let us just hope we are not too late.

Well so far our representatives have ignored me on both counts.

ANY comprehensive solution, to stop the displacement of our Legal Citizens, will require E-Verify but it is not anywhere to be found. Why is E-Verify so important? Because if all employers are forced to implement E-Verify we could get rid of millions of Illegal Immigrants that have been allowed to stay here after their damn visa’s expired. That would translate into millions of jobs for our own Legal Citizens who have been thrown under that bus for literally decades.

Here is an article trying to explain why E-Verify will not be part of the Immigration reform bill.

===== Will the President — and his voters — settle for an amalgam of walls, fences and electronically monitored border areas broken by areas of impassable topographical features like rivers and mountains, for instance?

Then the GOP must shape its own position on questions that include whether DACA recipients should be allowed to bring their parents or grandparents into the country once they are legalized. The party must arrive at a definition of exactly what it means by border security and balance the demands of its rambunctious base with other Republican constituencies like business and agricultural groups that are alienated by hard-line GOP positions on workplace verification systems like E-Verify.

Trump, Republicans face immigration reckoning By Stephen Collinson and Lauren Fox, CNN January 11, 2018 http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/11/politics/donald-trump-immigration-gop/index.html =====

Here’s another:

===== Republicans may give hundreds of thousands of immigrants a path to citizenship in upcoming weeks, begging a decades-old question: What are they going to demand in return?

A path to citizenship even for a limited population like recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is forcing Republicans to reckon with whether now is also the time to push for E-Verify triggers, which could make a narrow bill more comprehensive and therefore more complicated.

For several months, a group of bipartisan senators led by Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have quietly worked on a way to preserve DACA in exchange for bolstered border security — but not E-Verify, a national database that is used by employers to verify the immigration status of individuals they hire.

Once a cornerstone of Trump campaign, E-Verify makes a DACA deal far more complicated By Lauren Fox and Tal Kopan, CNN January 12, 2018 http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/12/politics/daca-e-verify-internal-enforcement/index.html =====

Oh more “complicated” my ass. The reason neither party want E-Verify is because it would instantly stop the flow of Legal and Illegal immigrants into the United States which is slowly being transformed into a Global Shithole. Goodness forbid that our representatives might finally represent WE THE PEOPLE.

“Securing America’s Future Act” is the most comprehensive bill I’ve yet read. And it will get the job done for good. Unfortunately it doesn’t’ stand a “snowball’s chance in Hell” at the moment.

===== Four House Republicans introduced legislation today to grant amnesty to DACA recipients while addressing all of Pres. Trump’s demands. The Securing America’s Future Act, introduced by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, House Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Raul Labrador, House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, and House Border Subcommittee Chairwoman Martha McSally, would end Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery, make E-Verify mandatory for all employers, and beef up both interior enforc
ement and border security.

Reps. Goodlatte, Labrador, McCaul, and McSally were all part of the GOP working group that included members of the GOP Leadership team to draft legislation to grant amnesty to DACA recipients. Even though, the Securing America’s Future Act was authored by just these four lawmakers, The Hill is reporting that the bill has received the support of the House GOP Leadership team, however, there has been no indication that it will be brought to the floor for a vote.

In recent weeks, Pres. Trump has said that he would like to see an end to Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery, along with additional border security, paired with a permanent solution for DACA recipients. The Securing America’s Future Act combines a number of border and interior enforcement bills that have already been passed by the House Judiciary Committee, including Rep. Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act to require all businesses to use E-Verify for new hires along with a renewable visa program for DACA recipients.

The bill:

Eliminates the Visa Lottery green card program;

Eliminates Chain Migration and creates a renewable temporary visa for parents of citizens to unite families at no cost to taxpayers;

Reduces legal immigration levels by about 260,000 a year – a decrease of about 25%;

Reforms the agricultural guest worker program;

Sends additional ICE agents to more high-risk embassies overseas to vet visitors and immigrants;

Provides additional technology, roads and other tactical infrastructure to secure the border;

Adds 5,000 Border Patrol Agents and 5,000 CBP Officers;

Requires full implementation of the biometric entry/exit system at all air, land, and sea ports of entry;

Makes E-Verify Mandatory for all employers;

Authorizes the Department of Justice to withhold law enforcement grants from sanctuary cities;

Allows DHS to detain dangerous illegal immigrants who cannot be removed;

Reduces asylum fraud by tightening the “credible fear” standard to root out frivolous claims and increases penalties for fraud/terminates asylum for individuals who voluntarily return home;

Grants amnesty to DACA recipients by issuing a 3-year renewable visa with work permit House Republican Chairs Introduce DACA Bill That Also Ends Chain & Lottery, and Mandates E-Verify PUBLISHED: Wed, JAN 10th 2018 https://www.numbersusa.com/news/house-republicans-introduce-legislation-end-chain-lottery-grant-amnesty-daca-recipients =====

Let me briefly describe the real problem that faces us Legal Citizens that have been thrown under the bus for literally decades. It explains why soon you will probably not be able to grow your own Cannabis. It explains why the inflow of immigrants will never be stopped. It explains why we are being forced to get vaccines, except Smart Meters on our homes and so much more. But before I explain that you might want to read about the “end of choice” in the United States and much of the world today. It is very important that the American People begin to understand the magnitude of this evolving threat.

===== Smart Meters and the End of Choice and Free Speech BRUCE CAIN·SUNDAY, JANUARY 7, 2018 https://www.facebook.com/notes/bruce-cain/smart-meters-and-the-end-of-choice-and-free-speech/2214018658624110/ =====

The Real Problem Facing Us is Globalization

Over the last 100 years Global Corporations have become more powerful than most nations. They now control our Legislature, Presidency, Judiciary, Press, the United Nations and ALL internet platforms: Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and more. And that is exactly why they are out to censor our free speech on the internet. The following article explains this in some depth.

===== Don’t be fooled by all the talk of “fighting fake news.” It’s really all about one thing: Censorship.

Fighting fake news is the new pretext given by the ruling cabal in many nations to enact censorship via the back door. Amid the rallying cries of “We must fight fake news!” both France (under would-be dictator Macron) and now Brazil are attempting to pass legislation to ban political content on the web that the government deems to be fake news. There is a theme to this, as it follows on from many acts of censorship in 2016 and 2017. Whether it’s Twitter shadow-banning, Facebook rolling our fake news checkers or deleting entire accounts, YouTube embarking upon soft censorship through forced sign-ins or hard censorship by deleting entire channels, Google’s search engine hiding websites by de-ranking them, or – worst of all – Google demonetizing content and sites not to its liking, censorship is clearly getting worse — and it’s threatening to overtake a free and open internet.

At this moment I cannot divine a plan to stop this shit. But I can tell you exactly what their template for global domination is. All you have to do is some research on the United Nations “Agenda 21” and “Agenda 2020.” The following video came on in 2010 but pretty much summarizes how we are about to be enslaved in the coming months and years.

Agenda 21 Summary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTrlCjscMN8

Concluding Remarks

Fifty years ago I did both Marijuana and LSD for the first time in my life. The year was 1968 and I was but 14 years of age. Throughout my life, now 63, I long tried to understand why we can never solve any of our social problems. Why can’t adults simple grow their own Cannabis as we can make our own Beer and Wine at home. Why can’t I choose what drugs I put into MY body. Why is my government increasingly forcing me to get vaccines, forcing me to have a smart meter on my home etc? Well in explaining Agenda21 perhaps I have explained that to some extent. We are being imprisoned by a growing Global Deep State.

1968 was also the year that the Stone’s released the song “Street Fighting Man.”

===== Street Fighting Man The Rolling Stones

Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy ‘Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy Well what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band ‘Cause in sleepy London town There’s just no place for a street fighting man No

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution ‘Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution Well, then what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band ‘Cause in sleepy London town There’s just no place for a street fighting man No

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance I’ll shout and scream, I’ll kill the king, I’ll rail at all his servants Well, what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band ‘Cause in sleepy London town There’s just no place for a street fighting man No =====

Yep, that song has long left an impression on me. And the lyrics that remain branded in my mind?

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution ‘Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution

That is the globalist game my friend: compromised solutions that never solve a
single god damn problem. And 50 years later I get it. The globalists are not interested in solving anything. The globalists want to control every aspect of our lives. For nearly 10,000 years our elites have looked on us as either “useful idiots” or “useless eaters.” So if you give a damn about your friends, your children or your grandchildren it is time. Not quite sure how we do this without violence. But we are in need of an immediate Peaceful rEvolution.

Time for a Global “Palace Revolution.” It is either that or we simply accept the fact that we will soon be nothing more than slaves on the emerging Global Plantation. Surely we can do better than that?

Crank this baby up. It has inspired me for 50 years. Hopefully it will also inspire the rest of you. It is time!

It’s (Past) Time to Clean House in KY!

By Scott Hofstra on November 18, 2017 | Comments 2 | Affiliate Disclosure

Editor’s Note: Current charges of sexual harassment in KY’s legislature take top billing. But, wait, there’s more. (All outside links and emphases were added by me.)

For many years Kentucky has been known as perhaps the most politically corrupt state in the country. In 2015, a Harvard University study ranked Steve Beshear’s administration as the most corrupt state government in the country.

Shortly after the Bevin administration took over, two of Steve Beshear’s most trusted advisors were arrested, convicted and sent to prison by the FBI for bribery in a scheme to funnel kickbacks for no bid state contracts into Andy Beshear’s campaign for Attorney General.

An audit performed shortly after governor Bevin took office showed that Greg Stumbo and others funneled something like $56 million dollars from a fund to pay cost of living raises for police officers into the general fund in order to pay for their pork barrel projects. It appeared that the long time Democrat power base had grown increasingly corrupt.

Then, Governor Bevin and the Republican majorities in the house and Senate came to power. There was a new sheriff in town and we were promised that things were going to change. Unfortunately, it appears that the stench of corruption extends even into the Republican house leadership and beyond.

Sexual Harassment Cover-Up

Over the past several weeks, we have learned that Republican House Speaker Jeff Hoover and three other House Republicans settled a sexual harassment case out of court and then tried to cover it up. Governor Bevin was quick to call for the resignations of anyone involved in this scandal. The charges quickly led to Speaker Hoover stepping down from his position as House Speaker, but not from his elected office as state rep.

There are currently several investigations in the works.

  • The FBI is conducting an investigation at the request of Rep Wesley Morgan (R).
  • An eight person group made up of representatives led by Rep Phil Moffett (R) and Rep Tim Moore (R) are conducting their own investigation (albeit without the power to subpoena).
  • A House Caucus investigation is also in progress with one of the controlling members being Rep Jonathan Shell (R), who is a strong friend and ally of Jeff Hoover.
  • The House Caucus has also hired a legal firm (that they are paying for and overseeing) to look into the charges.
  • This week, Democrat Rep Jim Wayne called for an ethics investigation into who paid for the harassment settlement.

From my understanding of the KRS, if the legislators involved did not pay for the settlement out of their own pockets, it could be chargeable as a class D felony.

The LRC immediately responded that they had not paid for the settlement.

Unfortunately, the ethics complaint will be investigated by the LRC. LRC personnel were involved in the sexual harassment settlement as complainants. I’ve met David Byerman of the LRC, and I believe that he is a good man. That being said, allowing the LRC to investigate itself concerning these ethics charges is tantamount to insanity.

Rumors (and I stress ONLY rumors!) are swirling that Jeff Hoover, Jonathan Shell and Congressman James Comer had been colluding to stall or kill Governor Bevin’s pension plan in order to make the governor look bad. Their plan (according to the rumors) was to have Congressman Comer ride in on a white horse next election season as the GOP’s savior and run against Governor Bevin in the Gubernatorial Primary.

From this CNN article: “US Rep. James Comer, who lost to Bevin in the 2015 primary by just 83 votes after a former girlfriend said that he struck her while they dated in college, is a close ally of Hoover as well. He has been considering a primary challenge to Bevin.”

The FBI may be involved in the investigation of the sexual harassment settlement because rumors have been flying that Congressman Comer may have been involved in trying to convince the women involved and others at the LRC to keep quiet about the settlement.

I hold out hope that the FBI and the eight person committee investigating these allegations will be able to get to the facts and put this issue to rest.

I have absolutely no confidence that Jonathan Shell and the House Caucus investigation (or their legal team) will get to the truth.

That’s like the fox investigating itself for raiding the hen house.

In the end, Republicans excoriated the Democrats for their corruption, yet some in the GOP are actually trying to defend those involved in this scandal.

The truth MUST come out and the Republican Party MUST clean up its own house if they EVER hope to regain the confidence of the Conservative voters in this state.

If all of these allegations get swept under the rug, the GOP is going to be hard pressed to hold onto its House and Senate majorities.

Worse yet, they will have lost the confidence of the citizens and voters who put them in office in the first place.

The Republicans must clean house and they must do it quickly. They must prove to all Kentuckians that unlike the Democrats, they are above the corruption. Its time for sanity and reality to return to Kentucky politics.

I’m suggesting that the Governor’s office appoint a completely independent investigator with the power to issue subpoenas, not beholding to the House, the Senate, the Governor’s office or the LRC, to conduct a thorough investigation into all of the charges and the ethics accusations.

Should additional Republicans and/or Democrats be discovered to be involved in the corruption, then they need to be exposed and charged as well.

We must restore credibility and honesty to Kentucky government.

Without this exposure to political sunlight, Kentucky may forever be doomed to be considered the most corrupt state government in the country. We are better than this.

The only question is, do our legislators and politicians have the political backbone to do what needs to be done?

(KY) Representative To File Bill Allowing Counties To Decide On Marijuana Legalization


 
(LEX 18) A press release from the campaign manager for Representative Dan Johnson of Bullitt County said that he is filing a bill for the 2018 General Assembly that if passed, would allow local jurisdictions to hold local option elections to decide whether to allow marijuana growth, possession, and distribution.
“A lot of people want government to crack down on marijuana use, a lot of people want it to be available for people who have medical needs for it and a lot of people just want to be left alone to use it when they want to,” Rep. Johnson (R-Bullitt County) said. “We need a compromise that works for everyone and I think I have a pretty good idea.”
Johnson says there is a lot of disagreement about how the state should legalize marijuana or if the state should legalize marijuana. He said he believes the best solution would be to let each county decide on their own.
“The population is split on marijuana, but it’s clear that the momentum is headed toward growing and using it legally in Kentucky,” Johnson said. “This approach would allow us to have up to 120 different approaches to an issue that clearly isn’t one size fits all. Some counties won’t touch it and some will transform their economies on an agricultural product with worldwide demand.”

Al Franken Smoked Weed, Snorted Coke, And Dropped Acid. That Doesn’t Make Him Bad

Pot isn’t that big of a deal and apparently neither is the hard stuff like cocaine and LSD. Sen. Al Franken used all three as part of a pretty serious drug regimen to, you know, keep his mind limber during his days as a comic on Saturday Night Live.

“For my part, I never really got into trouble with drugs. I used to say, ‘I only did cocaine so I could stay up late enough to make sure nobody else did too much cocaine,’ which was a joke, but not too far from the truth,” Franken writes in his new book, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate.

And that’s a significant admission from someone who might want a job in the White House. Of course, plenty of past presidents have used drugs—Clinton experimented without inhaling in England and Obama had his infamous “choomwagon.” But this is different.

The Franken admission signals that drug use isn’t the political liability it once was. And if the liberal funnyman should win the Democrat nomination in 2020, Franken will prove that dropping acid doesn’t preclude one from running for president.

To Franken’s credit, he got clean after the sudden overdose death of SNL co-star, John Belushi. “For whatever reason,” he writes in the book, “I never became addicted. There but for the grace of God go I.”
A forgiving electorate probably won’t make up their mind after they found out that Franken fried his brain on drugs in the eighties. At the same time, it won’t win him many points. Not to harsh Franken’s mellow, but Obama was probably the last president who made drugs look cool.

Millennials aren’t reaching for illicit drugs anymore. Angel dust and pot don’t do the trick anymore, the Economist reports Friday. Use of cocaine and marijuana have plummeted in the last decade. Instead they’re much more likely to raid their parent’s medicine cabinets for painkillers.

Far from crashing and burning his political prospects then, Franken’s drug use more than likely will just peg him as a boring old guy. For an old comic trying to identify with the youths, that’s got to be a buzz kill
