This Tuesday’s Concord city council meeting includes a discussion item to remove single family homes and condos from the scope of the recently adopted rent/occupancy control ordinance. I support the removal 100%. In fact I would like to see the entire ordinance tossed out.

Not sure we need a ballot measure, though. What we need are city council members willing to admit they made a mistake and go back to the drawing board. To help tenants move in no-fault situations, I would like to see an extension of the notice requirement from 2 months to 4 months. Keep it simple.

It’s funny how President Biden is threatening to withhold aid from Israel. When Trump did a temporary hold on aid to Ukraine, he was put up for impeachment. The hypocrisy of the democrats never ceases to amaze me.

Why would you complain about not giving more of our money to Israel?

Are you that simple where you’ll cheer the funding of a foreign war just because Biden appears to be against it? …The old reverse Psychology trick 🙂

No more money for Israel. No more money for Ukraine. America First.

You illustrated the difference perfectly. “President Biden is THREATENING to withhold money from Israel.When Trump DID a temporary hold on aid to Ukraine.”

Threatened =|=did the action
Temporary hold == did the action.

Of course, this is highly simplified. It avoids the basis of law that both Presidents have interacted upon. Along with neglecting the complexities of diplomatic and foreign relations. At center, at the start of a crime, someone has to commit it.

Also the Israelis wear uniforms, Hamas terrorists could be anybody in any kind of clothing holding a weapon. Israel just gets held to a higher standard because they are more civilized than their enemies.

What’s with this crap about people “squatting?” At one time in my life, there was a law called Breaking and Entering that made it against the law to do this. Just because a house is vacant for a period of time, probably do to the owners traveling, does not give anyone the right to break in and live here. Am I missing something?

Can someone explain to me why State Sens. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, and Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco were unable to support Senate Bill 350, also known as Alexandra’s Law, that makes anyone who is convicted of selling drugs will receive a formal written notice that says:

“It is extremely dangerous to human life to manufacture or distribute real or counterfeit controlled substances. If you do so, and a person dies as a result of that action, you can be charged with voluntary manslaughter or murder.”

The measure had 22 state senators as coauthors, which is more than half of California’s Senate yet Democrat Nancy Skinner and Democrat Scott Wiener killed it in a subcommittee hearing by voting it down.

Since the bill was struck down, it cannot be voted on again.

ANYONE care to defend this?!?

Reminder that many people get addicted to opioids through prescription drugs and then switch to street drugs when they can no afford or get prescriptions for the “legal” ones. Over prescription of opioids by doctors (who should be held accountable) through promotion by big pharma was so bad, that the CDC finally had to regulate it. Nothing will change until you target those perpetuating the reasons people take addictive drugs for profit.

1

THE BLACK KNIGHT May 13, 2024 - 8:11 PM - 8:11 PM

Everybody in government who jumped on this “opiod epidemic” bandwagon is part of the problem and not part of the solution. They made the decision that the lives of drug abusers and drug addicts have more value than the lives of the 50+ million Americans who suffer from chronic debilitating pain and have a legitimate need and use for these drugs who can no longer get the dosage of medications they need or have been totally cut off by their doctors because of CDC guidelines. The CDC guidelines from about 8 years ago, which treated all chronic pain patients the same and had doctors “practicing medicine” based on the advice of their lawyers and not the needs of their patients, were revised several years later, because those “CDC guidelines” drove millions of legitimate chronic pain patients, who had their medications reduced or totally cut off, to self-medicate by using heroine, fentanyl laced counterfeit drugs, or ultimately choosing suicide as their only option for chronic pain relief. Government drove millions of Americans to illegal-drugs drug addiction and death, because the CDC, DEA, and FDA are incapable of coordinating and communicating with each other, and they drove doctors into fear of losing their licenses.

Hope Johnson May 13, 2024 - 10:38 PM - 10:38 PM

Some mischaracterization of the situation. Doctors are lobbied like politicians by pharma companies, and, like politicians, the medical professionals failed to regulate themselves because they were making money. Doctors were over prescribing opioid pain meds for profit well before any CDC guidelines caused “fear” of losing their licenses. The Sackler family who started selling Oxycontin in the 1990’s is worth $11B. Oxycontin addiction has been around for a very long time and it had to be prescribed by doctors. If Americans are in $11B worth of pain, something is really wrong with the health care system in this country. Some pharmacies got away with ordering more addicitive pain meds than the local population could possibly ever use. Had the medical profession done something about that themselves, they wouldn’t have been regulated by the politicians who were complicit in the prescription drug money game. It’s no different than those doctors who remained silent during the covid vaccine push even when some were seeing injuries. The government is a terrible regulator so it’s no wonder that people who actually need pain meds had a hard time getting them but right now that regulation is all we have. But it is the addcitive qualtites of the opioid based legal prescription meds that started the addiction crisis, not a crisis of suddenly a bunch of people were in narcotic level pain who couldn’t get the drugs. Big pharma wants to make meds that people need to take for their whole lives so they can reap in big profits, and addicitive opioids were a part of their push to do it. Just the same way tobaco compaines pushed to make cigarettes as addictive as possible. Of course people who really need the pain meds should get them – as should people in pain but without medical insurance, a number steadily growing, who are more likely to use street drugs that are cheaper than prescription drugs regardless of whether or not guidleines exist. However, unless the issue is addressed at the top level of legal opioid pushers, the street drug dealers you arrest will quickly be replaced by new dealers.

Guess what happened in 2011 when AB-109 was passed ? ? ?
Majority of those released on parole, their supervision became responsibility of counties.
Some of those released because of AB-109 had committed sexual felonies.
Law also pushed use of GPS ankle monitors.
.
2013 ‘Sex offenders routinely released from California jails, records show’ …
“”When parolees get arrested, they get released the next day,” said Susan Kane, a Department of Corrections supervising agent in Stockton, just outside San Francisco. “So it doesn’t matter how bad they are or what’s happened. If there are no fresh criminal charges, they are released the next day back into the community.” ”

Prior to AB-109 a parole violation usually involved more prison time.
That is no longer the case, most time for a parole violation now is 180 days in county jail.
Because of jail overcrowding in all 58 counties it’s far less and there are times because of overcrowding jails will refuse to accept the violator. Where’s the deterrence ? ? ?

Kamala drops the F-bomb, followed by her signature cackle while lecturing young Asian Americans. Perhaps she thought this would give her “street cred”. As if they live in the ‘hood……..

Shouldn’t be surprised, just another DEM sanctuary city brain dead politician.

Not even a requirement that they be fluent in English language ? ? ?
Lifeguards have to be able to talk with emergency services, write reports, use two way radios and communicate with citizens most of whom speak English.

Adams is in a no win situation. Continue on his chosen path of sanctuary and he watches his coffers run dry and his voters revolt against the left’s policies. Change his tune to align with reality and he becomes a pariah to the left wing sheep for stepping off of the plantation.

Either way he’s screwed. Either way he loses reelection hope. I don’t think that even CNN would hire him as a contributor after such a racist remark.

Funny thing sometimes happens to those who rock the DEM boat,
federal law enforcement and prosecutors take an interest in them.

A vote for Joe is a vote for Kamala.
He falls down physically, she falls down intellectually.
The US really needs leaders who are capable of remaining upright mentally, physically, and spiritually.

The Fearless Spectator, …
Let’s review DEM presidents,
obama, the in love with himself teleprompter lecturer.
biden, inept lifelong swamp creature, who loses fights with his teleprompter.
If biden wins, all but ensures president giggles that will embolden every bad actor country.
.
Businesses under obama and biden sidelined cash because DEMs can’t be trusted. Instead bought back shares or invested cash. There has to be political stability and regulatory certainty for companies to risk capital, neither existed under obama or biden.

So let’s recap where we are in the “Stormy Daniels Hush Money Trial”.
NY DA Alvin Bragg decides to charge Trump with a Federal Crime of breaking campaign finance laws. He can’t try to charge via state charges because the statute of limitations has run out. Somehow he thinks that a state DA can charge a federal crime (that the Feds say isn’t a crime) in state court.
He hand picks Judge Merchon. Dems claim its because of Merchon’s judicial fairness. Reps claim it was because he’s tied in with the Dems (Merchon’s daughter is President of a political consultant group whose clients are a who’s who of the Dem party). Merchon has ruled against Trump in almost every opportunity.
The jury is picked from pool that is approx 90% Dem. Bragg neglects to explain to the jury exactly what the alleged crime is.
Witnesses are called and testify with two witnesses in particular being noteworthy. First is Stormy Daniels, who’s testimony reads less about a crime and more like a bad porno flick. Next is Michael Cohen, former Trump attorney and “fixer” who testifies that he paid Stormy $160k out of his own pocket as hush money on orders from Trump. However, during cross examination, Cohen’s previous testimony is thrown into question when his current testimony does not jibe with his previous testimony from last week. Let’s also not forget that Cohen is a felon who has served jail time for perjuring himself previously.

So here are the problems that I see with this case.
1. Bragg has no standing. The alleged crime is a Federal statute that the Feds don’t believe was broken. If they did, then the Feds would have charged Trump in Federal court.
2. Bragg would have standing if he was charging Trump with a State statute. But the statute of limitations for that expired years ago. Hence, no State crime.
3. Hush money payments and Non disclosure agreements are not illegal. They are sordid and dirty but not against the law.
4. Stormy’s testimony never framed a crime. It appears that her testimony was more of a smear on Trump to make him look morally corrupt to potential voters.
5. Cohen, the “star witness”, already comes to court with considerable baggage. A felon with a bad attitude and a history of lying under oath. His testimony sounds damning at first until it unravels under a brutal cross examination.
6. Finally, Bragg hasn’t specified to the court what the State believes the actually crime to be.

No crime has been proven yet. We’ll soon see if the jury agrees. Should Trump still lose the case, he’ll surely appeal the decision- all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. That will only leave Bragg (and Biden) with a soundbite of “Trump is a convicted felon” instead of images of Trump in an orange jumpsuit. A Pyrrhic victory at best.
