  2. Valid point except the phrase "stolen valor" was a thing, a known phrase, long before the military Stolen Valor Act was signed into law in 2013... and I was using the former rather than the latter. A person attempting to claim accolades for a courageous or heroic act for something they didn't actually participate in, such as Hillary Clinton falsely claiming her life was in jeopardy because after her landing in Bosnia in 1966 she had to "run with her head down to get into a vehicle to avoid sniper fire"... But here is the most salient point as far as I'm concerned... And in all the previous discussions about Clinton's false claims, in every other instance of a candidate you supported or endorsed caught lying to the public have you ever posted a single word of condemnation about their false statements? No, but you've posted often about conservative or Republican candidates you've accused of making false statements or lying, but again I digress. Is it possible Hillary Clinton didn't lie about her arrival in Bosnia... not a chance since there is irrefutable video evidence to prove she was lying. Is it possible Majewski has a valid claim to being a Afghan combat veteran because he was deployed in Qatar during the Afghan War? Here's an excerpt from the original article you posted... "During the Persian Gulf War, then-President George H.W. Bush designated, for the first time, countries used as combat support areas as combat zones despite the low-risk of American service members ever facing hostilities. That helped veterans receive a favorable tax status. Qatar, which is now home to the largest U.S. air base in the Middle East, was among the countries that received the designation under Bush's executive order — a status that remains in effect today." It seems by the broadest strokes of interpretation, an exaggeration if you will Majewski could be considered a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, given his presence in an area designated by the president as a combat support zone, he could be considered a combat veteran... not that I or I suspect many other veterans would but it is what it is. Did Majewski or anyone promoting him "lie" about his being an Afghan War veteran - about his designation as a combat veteran? It doesn't appear so according to the fact that former president Bush designated the region Majewski served in as a Afghan War combat zone... so to say he is a Afghan War combat veteran may be a bit of an exaggeration as far as you or I am concerned, but the reality of it is officially and according to the information we currently have his claims appear to be valid. There's an old adage: "A person is only responsible for what they say - not what other people think they meant" and that seems to apply here. In closing I will comment that personally and politically I do not find J.R. Majewski a candidate I would be willing to support despite former president Trump's endorsement, Trump's just another celebrity who's views and opinions are just as valid {or invalid} as any other celebrity activist... but then since I'm not a resident of Ohio, it's rather a moot point anyway.
  3. now we could look at the difference GWs WMD claim was used to justify a decades long war costing a hundred thousand lives (yes Im count our soldiers, civilians and the enemy) Trump claim that covid was a democrat hoax cost a million lives yes I call out republicans mainly because you dont very often , and only after an exchange like this where I shame you into it When you and others were trashing Obama for made up bull crap , I simply pointed out that if you wanted to complain about what he did then at least do it on a real issue , I even suggested a few including preventive detention and not changing the tax codes but instead it was all bogus claims of family vacation costs , or his golfing. Which was obviously Bull crap because when it was trump golfing and spending millions at his resorts or tower you were no longer concerned about tax payers money. spending money on on the ACA to provide health care was bad but some how stealing money from the military to build a wall was fine demanding Obama and clinton balance the buget and reduce spend was cool but concern over the budget and spending vanished when it was republicans spending under GW and trump the two of which added over 18 trillion to the national debt with the help of republican controlled congress And you you try to claim Im a hypocrite , you should look in the mirror
  4. But not I said it was a screw up multiple times when trump did it you defended and Donsplained him ( told us all what he was supposed to mean) while denying what he said you did the same for GW more than once even repeating the WMD claims after GW himself said there werent any but it is wha it is right well it is a long standing pattern of yours
  5. stolen valor refers to those pretending to be something they werent in the military or claim to have been military when they werent as a vet yourself I would expect you to understand that show me a democrat using stolen valor and you will see the same from me , and no I dont mean swift boating Hillary for her sniper claim , yeah she lied but she did claim she was fighting or on some secret Ops , this guy did . and yes I hold those who were in the military to a higher standard just as I hold those in the police to a higher standard they both took oaths captain bone spurs bought his deferment then claimed that freakin band camp was as hard as active duty , he also pissed on Gold Star parents and called those who did serve suckers . Some called Clinton a draft dodger because he was given a deferment because he was a rhodes scholar What you see from even most politicians that have been in combat is they avoid speaking of it and they never claim to be heroic you never heard Ike , JFK or even GHbush claim they did anything other than they said their duty, they didnt embellish or brag about their exploits John McCain didnt either though captain bone spurs continually attacked his service But hey you want to defend this trumper thats been caught in his lies just like trump then go for it , you've been defending the orange anus liar and thief since he announce he was running for office years ago , why would you wanna change now.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Oh so we're going to try to impose a double standard on liars who have been in the military vs liars who haven't been in the military now huh? Yeah, Hillary was never in the military, she just aspired to become the Commander-N-Chief over all American military forces... but hey why pick nits? The fact is there have been Republican and Democrat candidates who have exaggerated or outright lied about their alleged involvement in the military and combat areas. All I'm saying is for some reason you only seem to have a problem with it when the perpetrator is a Republican - never when they're a Democrat. Like how you repeatedly ridiculed former president Trump as a "draft dodger" for receiving medical deferments despite being active in school athletics calling him "Captain bone spurs" when his deferments kept him out of the military draft. But when it was revealed president Biden also received medical deferments for childhood asthma even though he was active in high school and college sports you suddenly turn mute... Yeah, it is what it is.
  8. So despite all the attempted misdirection, deflection, hyperbole the short of it is... Which is what I've been saying all along...
  9. strange I dont recall Hillary ever claiming to have been in the military by all means show me where she claimed that, show me where she claimed she was ever a combat Vet. Maybe its that you dont understand what stolen Valor is I would like to see you produce a single post where I defended Hillaries false claim of the sniper fire , good luck with that since it didnt happen anywhere other than your imagination
  10. No that was your excuse for everything trump did Biden calling right wingers a threat to the nation wasnt a gaff it was a fact when biden said Putin shouldnt be allowed to continue leading Russia and threatening the world that wasnt a gaff it was a fact fine biden may well have just glanced at the information and recognized a woman who he had known, youve never asked about someone who died ? someone you knew was dead but for a moment you forgot and asked a family member how they were doing ? . be honest you wouldnt have known she was dead or who she was either , I wouldnt have because I hadnt seen that news bit and dont know the name of every house representative . was it a screw up sure. yeah Biden said the pandemic was over , is it ? maybe not but there arent thousands dying every day businesses are open , people are vaccinated and life for the most part is back to normal. I know it doesnt matter because you just want to find something any thing to bash biden for . hell ya did it with Clinton and Obama too and spent years doing it to Hillary , why should Biden be any different the hypocrisy is how you ignored trumps gaffs and out right lies and how you spread them and continue to spread them , the evil asylum seekers that were supposed to be rapists and smuggling drugs or were all members of MS 13, or that BLM is trying to destroy the country because they protest the murder of unarmed blacks, you love that one . even the BS about voter fraud and stolen elections granted you havent gone totally bat crap crazy on that yet.
  11. And your point? We should give Biden a pass for his verbal missteps because Trump also made verbal blunders... after years of hearing complaints about Trump's gaffs and lies? This thread a perfect example... not a single condemnation for Biden, his gaffs and lies - but you try to attack Trump, nearly two years after he left office - after attacking him for four years while he was the president... And by the way, some of the comments you and the article attempt to point to, admit it or not are true and factual. I'll just respond to the first one as an example... How many skilled laborers, and highly educated individuals capable of providing for themselves without government subsistence do you figure are attempting to cross the border illegally -vs- those without jobs, without marketable skills, without much education and without sufficient means to provide for themselves? After news headlines broke about the stories about Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro releasing prisoners convicted of rape, murder and other crimes from state and federal prisons and sending them toward the U.S. Mexico border - with the number of people known who have been found guilty committing criminal offenses in their own countries, gang members previously deported from the U.S. for violent crimes here in America, persons confirmed to be on terrorist watch lists, being captured and detained by the CBP, how can anyone honestly claim Trump lied or exaggerated when he said... Of course the TDS afflicted will attempt to falsely claim Trump lied or he is guilty of some kind of racial/ethnic bias, but Trump's history of philanthropy, appreciation and support for people of color for decades prove those allegations to be false and the fact remains he was then and remains 100% correct when he stated... there are a lot of gang members crooks and criminals convicted of rape... murder... trafficking in drugs... Human trafficking and known or suspected terrorists attempting to enter the United States and as I already mentioned there are also some South and Central American countries who have attempted to send criminals to America.
  12. Interesting that you suddenly seem to be so concerned about 'stolen valor' people claiming participation in military engagements that they never really participated in - yet you fully endorsed Hillary Clinton during her 2016 run for President, when she repeatedly recounted a trip she took to Bosnia in March 1996 and claimed, upon landing, she her and entourage came “under sniper fire” and had to run for safety with “our heads down.” Well…Let’s roll the tape, shall we? Of course when confronted with her lie Hillary simply claims she "misspoke" and everyone seemed to be OK with that... This isn't simply a case of "A Democrat Did It Too", I am soundly opposed to attempts at stolen valor regardless of the source and despite your repeated false accusations I am not a dyed in the wool Trump supporter - nor do I agree with or support everyone he endorses, but I digress. As usual this seems to be just another case of the TDS afflicted attempting to condemn someone they disagree with and oppose while ignoring or refusing to acknowledge the same or similar transgressions committed by anyone they endorse or agree with.
  13. considering the last guy wanted to nuke mexico , suggested injecting disinfectants , claimed washinton kept the brits from taking the airports during the revolutionary war, and went on and on about the riots in bowling green , you really have nothing to complain about. but hey lets look at some of those The 37 Fatal Gaffes That Didn’t Kill Donald Trump - POLITICO Magazine . “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.

  14. This guys a true trumper he cant tell the truth either lets see hes claimed to be a combat vet proven false , claimed to have served in Afghanistan also appears to be false , could not re-enlist , claimed his deployment was classified ... then claims he was punished for getting in a fight when the reality is he was driving drunk , after 4 years he only made E2 and barely managed that .Only the GOP would run a guy on stolen Valor. QAnon-promoting candidate said Air Force punished him for getting in a fight — he actually drove drunk at base - Raw Story - Celebrating 18 Years of Independent Journalism
  15. On August 3rd 2022 House Representative Jackie Walorski was tragically killed in a traffic accident on State Route 19 south of Wakarusa, Indiana. The White House Press Corps released a statement supposedly from president Biden himself following Walorski's death saying he and Jill Biden were "shocked and saddened" and that he appreciated the congresswoman's help on planning for the hunger conference. During September 28, 2022 public speech at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health president Biden named the bipartisan group who worked on plans to end hunger in the U.S. by 2030, including the deceased Indiana Representative Jackie Walorski asking: "Jackie, are you here? Where's Jackie? I don't think – she was going to be here,"... This is the man many consider the "Leader of the Free World", the figurehead of the most powerful country in the Western hemisphere... The President of the United States. This is the man responsible for enacting and enforcing the laws, rules and regulations passed by a representative legislation of Congresspersons and for all practical purposes supposedly the moral and intellectual compass that steers our country to a more secure and prosperous future. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was mercilessly hammered by members of the press to explain the latest verbal faux pas by president Biden and I have to give her major credit for not simply throwing up her hands and saying "I haven't a clue...". Now in all fairness I am pretty sure Biden's speech writer intentionally included Walorski's name with the rest of her committee in order to give recognition to their combined efforts and president Biden once again went off script and said something he shouldn't have - asking if the deceased Indiana Representative was present at the press conference... But is it any wonder there are those among president Biden's opposition, and even some among his own political support who seem to have concerns about our president's cognitive competence? Given all the press and social and political uproar questioning former president Trump's cognitive ability, where's the same public indignation and feigned outrage when something like what happened today, happens with our current president?
  16. Last week
  17. actually you just failed first you claim NGOs then in your own post you admit that federal agencies approved the trans port and required NDAs . so sure Agencies hired NGOs to transport , they are also called civilian contractors The reality is much of it is hype to scare racist pricks on the right and by your posts they have done that , its more of the build the wall crap that did little more than line the pockets of some crooks. the reality is asylum seekers are crossing at patrolled border crossings Its not a crisis its something thats been happening since the country was founded , Republicans are less concerned with the people crossing the border than they are with trying to spread fear to get votes for the mid term . which is why this always is pushed aside until an election year . then its the same BS every time . trumps chant was build the wall with claims of ms13 and evil criminals it was all bull crap a distraction from him and his cronies getting racist idiots to send them money and it worked.
  18. Interesting how you immediately mention ICE... and as usual completely ignore, or intentionally fail to mention the NGO's who also bused out foreign nationals according to Cuellar. Is still to be considered a felony when the Non Government Organizations bus foreign nationals from one city/state to the next or are you just singling out DeSantis and Abbot out of partisan bias? So you keep saying... but just saying something, no matter how many time it's repeated doesn't make it true does it? It appears the statement you've made multiple times is ...not quite accurate... as seems to conflict with official CBP data and other public records... https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/southwest-land-border-encounters In 2020 during the peak of the pandemic and while Title 42 was still in effect the number of border encounters fell to a low of 646,822... Following Biden becoming president the number of border encounters have grown significantly even exceeding the previous high more than a decade ago of 1,615,081. According to PEW research... Southwest border encounters increased to their highest recorded level in fiscal 2021. The Border Patrol reported 1,659,206 encounters with migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border last fiscal year, narrowly exceeding the prior highs of 1,643,679 in 2000 and 1,615,844 in 1986. https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2021/11/09/whats-happening-at-the-u-s-mexico-border-in-7-charts/ft_21-11-01_mexicoborder_2/ Currently arrests along U.S.-Mexico border top 2 million a year for the first time ever... CBS: (SEPT 20, 2022)Annual U.S. border arrivals top 2 million, fueled by record migration from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua https://www.cbsnews.com/news/annual-u-s-border-arrests-top-2-million-fueled-by-record-migration-from-venezuela-cuba-and-nicaragua/ Still want to try to claim... As to your PolitiFact reference... It's a little off topic... but let's go with it ~ The U.S. doesn’t have an “open border” policy. Physical barriers, surveillance technology and U.S. Border Patrol agents work to secure the border. Of course it doesn't, we all know the United States doesn't have an official "open border" policy... What the U.S. does have is a bunch of people, among them a lot of leftists, Democrats along with Biden and people in his administration, acting like the nation has an open border policy. Refusing to abide by the rules and restrictions specifically outlined in immigration laws and even offering none to subtle enticements to encourage foreign nationals to come to the U.S.. We all know regardless of what something is supposed to be, what it is in reality - what it is commonly perceived to be often outweighs actuality. Yeah, that was after Vice President Harris publicly stated "the border is secure"... secure - but open according to this foreign national. Who should we believe the VP who claims "the border is secure" or the man in the yellow shirt who claims "the border is open, no problem we're here, we walked in"? Most fentanyl being smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico is coming in through official ports of entry, not carried in by people crossing the border illegally. OK it's a little off topic since we started talking about people crossing the border illegally but here again we have an issue of perception -vs- reality... I'll freely admit the greatest volume of illegal drugs are being brought into the country through official ports of entry, but to try to claim drugs aren't also being brought across by foot traffic along the southern border is beyond disingenuous and plainly deceptive. What I will also admit is the more border agents tasked with securing the border and apprehending foreign nationals attempting to cross into the U.S. illegally, then properly process them - the fewer border agents available to conduct searches and investigations at ports of entry to look for drugs... that really should be a no brainer. What isn't mentioned is although ports of entry are responsible for the greatest volume of drugs, it still seems illegal border crossing is the preferred method for human and gun traffickers... but if we simply concentrate on the drug issue and no one mentions human and gun trafficking issues then are the drugs a distraction for the human trafficking or is the human and gun trafficking a distraction to reduce the discovery of the drugs being brought into the country? Either way the cartels win and the American people and national security loses. Flights transporting detained adult immigrants and unaccompanied children are not secret, and are a part of the federal government’s legal responsibilities. Of course they are the purview of the federal government... But why were the majority of them were conducted by private charter in the wee hours of the morning (3 AM) where charter employees were forced to sign NDA's and the federal government failed to notify state and local representatives when those foreign nationals were dropped off in their states/cities... Again a typical attempted - and failed misdirection ploy... No one is arguing it isn't the government's responsibility to transport foreign nationals... But to do so with such apparent attempts at secrecy, in the dead of night and frequently without proper vetting, no instructions on when and where to appear for hearings or even in some cases without proper medical clearances during the height of the COVID pandemic - not to mention the failure to notify local and state government officials in the states/towns were they were being sent? Yeah a lot of people seemed to have a problem with that.
  19. So lets see this guy claims hes a combat vet who served in Afghanistan, but thats not what service records show diferent. when confronted he then claimed his deployment was classified ( wow wonder where he came up with that Idea, let me guess it was classified because he thought he classified it , seems theres been a rash of telepathic Classifying and declassifying from republicans. ) Ohio GOP House Candidate Has Misrepresented Military Service (usnews.com) Like many of those picked by trump and endorsed by him the guy is falling fast in the polls Maybe he was on one of those super secret brown Ops , operation Bone spurs with the Gravy seals the space forces commandos sent to find the Jewish space laser control base , or use telepathy to read the minds of goats to find hiding taliban(oops that was the movie men who stair at goats , only alittel more believable than most of what comes from the GOP these days .
  20. Ice is an authorized federal agency Abbot and Desantis are not one is legal the other is a felony illegal border crossing are down from trumps high point I find it interesting that republican news sources continue to add the 1.3 million back logged cases trump left the Biden admin. Its also suspect how they claim those sneaking around the fences are the major drug traffickers considering nearly all the drugs being seized are at legal border crossings . Of course politicians do like making false claims PolitiFact | A surprising number of Americans believe these false claims about immigrants. Here are the facts
  21. Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar (TX) disputed his own party’s recent claims that the U.S.-Mexico border is secure on The CNN... "The border is {obviously} not secure," says Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) . "With all due respect to the Vice President.... we get thousands of people along the border, from 6,000 to 8,000 people a day. They're releasing people." What I found additionally interesting is Representative Cuellar openly stating in the largely Democrat town of Laredo, TX, officials commonly "sent out, either by ICE or NGO's 26 buses {a day} to cities in the center of Texas or even outside the state of Texas" for years... In other words the Democrats in Laredo have been translocating people crossing the U.S.-Mexican border by bus, long before Florida Governor or Texas Governor Abbot began doing so, and not a peep from any on the left about "human trafficking" or "illegal"... how's that for another obvious double standard reveal? https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2022/09/17/smr-cuellar-on-border.cnn
  22. actually gas prices dropped daily for over 75 days after the trump saudi deal caused gas prices to jump by reducing production. And of course Oil companies raking in record profits by price gouging , of course they will need that to try to prop up the republican politicians they bought and paid for . Though since the GOP is still hitched to the sinking trump train, what they thought would be an easy take over of the house isnt looking so good nor are a number of governor races and senate seats . so there is hope that the democrats can get the mess left by trump straightened out and get the economy back on track many of Bidens policies have been doing just that with record jobs created and such , hopefully a new tax code that will punish those who have been price gouging but that may have to wait as the Main issue is preventing the republicans from removing the rights of so many citizens , be they women LGBT or minorities . they have made it clear they will continue to attack voters rights and do all they can to suppress peoples ability to vote . But even in heavily gerrymandered states they are not fairing very well as women and young voters are registering in record numbers who would have thought most US citizens dont like fascists or dictator wannabes
  23. Gasoline prices locally bouncing between $3 and $5 at the pumps ($4-$6 for diesel), fanning further the rising costs of goods and groceries and now economists are predicting the average cost to heat a home this winter will increase by 17.2% since last winter, according to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association... Press Release: Home Heating Costs Reach Highest Level in More than 10 Years Families will Pay 17.2% More for Home Heating this Winter Home Heating Costs Reach Highest Level in More than 10 Years Families will Pay 17.2% More for Home Heating this Winter Home heating costs are becoming increasingly unaffordable for millions of lower income families. The National Energy Assistance Directors Association (NEADA) representing the state directors of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) today released its projections of home heating costs for the upcoming winter heating season. The average cost of home heating is estimated to increase by 17.2% since last winter heating season from $1,025 to $1,202. This would be the second year in a row of major prices increases. Between 2020-21 and 2021-23, the cost of home energy would increase by more than 35%, these are the highest prices in more than 10 years. https://neada.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/winter2022-23PR.pdf Oddly enough our nation still has massive petroleum reserves, the oil and gas industry, despite their difficulties procuring equipment and labor could do much to alleviate the rising costs but companies and investors are hesitant to invest money in an industry the president, his administration and climate alarmists are doing much to vilify and shut down the industry... Can you blame them?
  24. Is this the future, with inflation and the rising costs of goods continuing to plague average households? The Biden administration and Democrats keep claiming they are doing everything they can do to address the problems of rising prices of goods, groceries and gasoline with one voice then turn around and enact government restrictions and regulations that even a person with no training in economics can tell will effectively raise prices and decrease the pocketable income everyone has... California for instance has mandated a ban on fossil fuel combustion personal vehicles by 2035 and currently the state legislature is considering a measure to ban the sale of diesel fuel commercial transport in the state by 2040... next I suspect there will be a consideration to ban the ownership and use of fossil fuel vehicles in the state at sometime in the future. President Biden has bled the Nations Emergency Strategic Petroleum Reserves in an attempt to lower consumer fuel prices which although might have worked for a time still saw the rise of consumer fuel prices to historic levels, not to mention the way the law is written provided foreign energy companies cheap access to the American Emergency Petroleum Reserves. All the while banning and restricting domestic exploration and drilling for petroleum here in the U.S. as he attempts to encourage foreign nations, even some who have openly expressed their desire to see America destroyed, to increase their production and sell oil to the United States. Leftists claim the fault lays exclusively at the feet of the private business sector and the domestic petroleum industry for doing what businesses are supposed to do, attempt to make a profit by selling their goods at the price the market bears and although that has always been the soul and purpose of businesses - to make a profit, plus the problem isn't just limited to U.S. petroleum producers, it's world wide... still, few from the left seem to be willing to ask; 'is there something other than profit motivating the rising costs'? I'll admit there appears to be increased profit taking among businesses, but after the lean couple of years of the pandemic, can anyone really fault businesses - whether it be the petroleum industry or the agricultural industry - from attempting to recover the losses each of these industries suffered during the pandemic years? Of course there are several reasons why prices were higher, it is sadly most of those on the left seem to be entirely focused on the profit motive of businesses while attempting to deny other obvious causes like increased demand, decreased supply and the difficulties of finding workers willing to work for wages when the federal government has, for all practical purposes, incentivized people not returning to work by offering alternatives to working and earning a paycheck... and then there is the continuing demonizing of the oil and gas industry by Biden and the left. U.S. Representative Morgan Griffith (R-PA) said "It is impossible to generate confidence or invest in production today when future production is clearly being blocked by this administration," which has directly had an effect on present and future profit prospects for investments for the oil and gas industry. We've had statements from oil company executives and other private business owners detailing their reasons for increasing prices primary among those reasons is increased supply and demand, time consuming recovery from the recent effects of the global pandemic and increases regulations, decreased land permits and higher taxes being imposed by the federal government. Even most economists agree with these statements either from a lack of knowledge of our capitalistic free market economy or some other reason, some still attempt immediately discount any reason other than evil profiteering by private industries who I say again is in business primarily to make a profit.
  25. I did read it which is why I said what I did its very vague and nearly impossible to enforce because of its wording in both the law and the exemptions actually desantis and abbott werent a deflection just a statement of fact and an example of your own hypocrisy on such matters you are concerned when a democrat may have violated a law but ignore when republicans have blatantly violated the law
  26. Previously you suggested I "actually read the law", might I suggest you follow your own advice... Although you claim the exceptions list is vague, I find it sufficiently explanatory to determine being invited as a guest speaker to talk about political party platforms not among the list of exceptions... If you can point out differently from the quoted exceptions list below, please feel free to do so ~ Exceptions The Legislature created exceptions in AB 1887 that allow travel to banned states in certain circumstances. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (c).) These exceptions only apply if travel to a subject state is "required." (Ibid.) Specifically, AB 1887 does not apply to state travel that is required for any of the following purposes: Enforcement of California law, including auditing and revenue collection. Litigation. To meet contractual obligations incurred before January 1, 2017. To comply with requests by the federal government to appear before committees. To participate in meetings or training required by a grant or required to maintain grant funding. To complete job-required training necessary to maintain licensure or similar standards required for holding a position, in the event that comparable training cannot be obtained in California or a different state not subject to the travel prohibition. For the protection of public health, welfare, or safety, as determined by the affected agency, department, board, authority, or commission, or by the affected legislative office. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (c).) https://oag.ca.gov/ab1887 Yeah, nice try with the attempted deflection/misdirection of the topic to immigration and DeSantis from a discussion of the hypocrisy the California Governor signing into law a travel ban to specific states - then repeated violating his own state's law for personal and political convenience... Unfortunately it is also another obvious fail...
  27. the trip to texas could be one of the exceptions in that hes going there to provide support to change those laws.as I said the law and the exceptions are quite vague as that law is written an exception would be to go to one of those states to pick up someone in the LGBT community and provide them safe transport to california personally its a poorly written and poorly thought out law that should never have been passed . But since we are pretending to show concerns about state funding breaking laws How about we point out 12 million illegally spent by Desantis to illegally transport (human traffic , supported by the false pamplets given to entice asylum seekers onto the planes) or Abbott bussing undocumented aliens to other states something that can only be legally done by properly authorized federal agents . Thus both are guilty of no less than three felonies .
  28. The bones of truth would be a drunk driver who ran over a kid grasp at a headline getting excuse Being that its North dakota Id say one should do a deep dive on the accuser . Its just as likely he made the claim to feed the maga stance against Biden He wouldnt be the first do do such a thing after all some of us remember the woman who carved amabO on her forehead and claimed it was done by liberal obama supporters
