California's Prop 47 leads to rise in shoplifting, thefts, criminal activity across state
These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more “serious” crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.
Since Proposition 47 was passed, there has been an increase in theft across the state. Cities like San Francisco have seen organized crime rings turn shoplifting into a well-organized racket involving desperate thieves and unscrupulous black-market resellers.
Among the nation's 20 largest cities, San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime, which includes theft, shoplifting and vandalism.
Del Seymour, founder of the non-profit Code Tenderloin, told Fox News that fencers – often from Mexico and Guatemala – set up shop in the middle of the day and night around the city's United Nations Plaza area. He said he's also noticed that the stealers and dealers have gotten bolder by the day. The retail heists taking place, he said, aren't some small-time operation but instead a sophisticated network of international dealers who cross the border to buy stolen goods. What's worse is that a majority of the handoffs happen in view of San Francisco's City Hall.
"They know what they're doing. They will bring in calculators and get all the way up to the $950 limit," Michelin told Fox News, adding that "one person will go into a store, fill up their backpack, come out, dump it out and go right back in and do it all over again."
Michelin said she's seen footage from member retailers that she described as "completely insane."
"They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it," she said. "They know no one is going to prosecute them. The district attorneys aren't."
She added that there are even more sinister acts afoot. Many out-of-state crime rings use children to do their dirty work because they know they're low on the totem pole of prosecutions.
"There are folks that are using and exploiting children," she said. "But I also think that teenagers know that there are no consequences anymore. It's part of a game. If you get caught, all you have to do is get out of the store."
California is one of a handful of states that doesn't hand out plastic shopping bags. To get one, the purchaser has to pay an additional dime. Residents looking to save ten cents and spare the environment typically put merchandise in a purse, backpack or have it in their hand when they walk out, an unintended consequence of which is shoplifters can easily "fit in and walk out" with the paying crowd.
The Battle of Lexington is started - the battle for Voing Integrity:
The very fishy election in Kentucky is being challenged, opening the door for a real investigation of the voter fraud:
My office has received a recanvass request from @GovMattBevin. The recanvass will be conducted Thursday, Nov. 14th at 9:00 a.m.
Kentucky Secretary of State now has the ultimate choice to make (QRV)
Kentucky SoS Allison Lundergran Grimes has her computers seized by the Ky State Police and now has an unenviable choice to make;
Choice A: certify the results of the Kentucky gubernatorial election (potentially knowing they contain vote fraud) only a few days after Bill Barr and the DOJ made a specific announcement that they are aggressively going after those who commit vote fraud.
Choice B: Disappoint millions of snowflake liberals watching nationally by NOT certifying the election results calling out voter fraud and exposing Democrat vote fraud tactics nationally.
One way she destroys herself and the other way she destroys the Democratic Party.
Why would she do this? Simple. Her father Jerry Lundergan has recently been convicted of conspiracy and campaign finance violations and faces 110 years in prison. He has owned Ky politics for at least 40 years as a top Democrat operative. Also our sweet little Allison has her computers seized by the Kentucky State Police only one month ago. Stay tuned.
The seizure of a computer from her office is part of an investigation into alleged improper use of state voter data by her office, pre-dating the election by some time.
Her dad was convicted shortly before the seizure on ten counts related to the illegal funneling of $200K in illegal corporate contributions to her 2014 Senatorial campaign against McConnell.

Hypocrisy exposed by Donald Trump Jr.:
Donald Trump Jr. triggered The View co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg after reminding viewers during an appearance on the show on Thursday that Behar donned blackface. Both adamantly denied it, despite the fact that Behar admitted to once dressing as a “beautiful African woman” for Halloween, wearing makeup “that was a little bit darker” than her skin.
The conversation took a heated turn when Trump used Behar’s use of blackface and Goldberg’s take on Roman Polanski as regrettable actions and positions.
“We’ve all done things we regret. If we’re talking about bringing discourse down – Joy, you’ve worn blackface,” Trump said spurring an immediate denial.
“No, I have not,” she quipped.
“Whoopi, you said that Roman Polanski, it wasn’t ‘rape’ rape when he raped a child,” he continued.
“I did not go in blackface, please,” Behar repeated, prompting Goldberg to come to her defense.
“No, she was not in blackface,” Goldberg said. “Listen, being black, I recognize blackface. This I can say, okay? I know it when I see it”:

A very brave doctor:
Johns Hopkins Chief Psychiatrist: Transgender Is A 'Mental Disorder' (theawakening)
On the heels of the American College of Pediatrics Reaching the Decision that Transgenderism of Children is Child Abuse, people are melting down everywhere!
To be clear – people should be treated very seriously when attempting to rectify their feelings with surgery or dangerous hormone treatments because they do need help and fast. Can people reasonably disagree about a cure?
Can people also agree that children should not be making these choices?
They sure have been pushing for transgender and other sexual deviants to be considered ok.
They seem to think they can get away with anything criminally. What else have they been getting away with?…
As if that wasn’t enough - take a look at this:

And decide for yourself…. It does fit a lot of information I have been getting from a lot of sources.
I can’t tell if this is real, for sure, but it is another interesting rumor regarding Susan Rice, Obama’s National Security Advisor:
Drag-queen demon reads to kids at Michelle Obama Library
It happened at the Obama library for the "Drag Queen Story Hour," a part of a collaboration between the LBPL, the LGBTQ Center of Long Beach, the Genders and Sexualities Alliance Network and the LGBTQ nonprofit Imperial Court of Long Beach, according to the Long Beach Public Library's calendar.
"DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real," the DQSH website reads. "DQSH happens regularly in LA, New York, and San Francisco, and events are popping up all over the world!"
The city of Long Beach, which is located in the district of Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also promoted the event, using a graphic that is clearly targeted toward young children.
"Attention Earthlings: This is Xochi Mochi your resident killer Klown from outer space. I dress up in drags and love tacos," his bio reads.
