Why Are So Many People Moving Out of California?

In recent years, the number of people moving away from the state of California has greatly outnumbered the number of people moving into the state. Reasons for the mass exodus include rising crime, the worst traffic in the western world, a growing homelessness epidemic, wildfires, earthquakes and crazy politicians that do some of the stupidest things imaginable. But for most families, the decision to leave California comes down to one basic factor…

Money.

For a lot of Californians, it simply does not make economic sense to remain in the state any longer. So over the past decade approximately 5 million people have picked up and moved to another state, and many believe that this trend is going to accelerate if California does not start doing things differently. The following is from an excellent article by Kristin Tate, the author of a new book entitled “How Do I Tax Thee?: A Field Guide to the Great American Rip-Off”…

The largest socioeconomic segment moving from California is the upper-middle class. The state is home to some of the most burdensome taxes and regulations in the nation. Meanwhile, its social engineering — from green energy to wealth redistribution — have made many working families poorer. As California begins its long decline, the influx outward is picking up in earnest.

I don’t know anyone that enjoys being taxed at extremely high levels, and in California extracting more and more revenue from the citizens has become an art form. California’s highest marginal tax rate is now a whopping 13.3 percent, and on average taxpayers are hit with a 9.3 percent rate…

Of course taxation is only part of the equation.

For many, the exceedingly high cost of housing in California is the primary reason that they have chosen to leave. At this point, the average price of a home in California is more than $200,000 above the national average…

According to Zillow, the average price for a home in the U.S. was $261,000 in February 2018. The average home price in California was $469,000. In Oklahoma, it was $116,000.

And that $469,000 figure is for the state as a whole.

In Santa Clara County (the home of Google and Apple), the median price of a single family home is 1.4 million dollars.

Yes, you read that correctly.

In some areas of northern California, the housing bubble is completely out of control. For example, just recently a burned out husk of a home sold for more than $900,000…

“Insensitive” Principal Forced to Apologize for Referencing 1776

CHERRY HILL — The principal of Cherry Hill High School East has apologized for “insensitive” language on tickets for the upcoming senior prom.

The tickets urged students to “party like it’s 1776” during the event at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

But that prompted complaints from students who noted “not all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776,” Principal Dennis Perry said in a letter to the community Friday.

“I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,” wrote Perry.

“I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have let down by not initially recognizing the inappropriateness of this wording,” he added.

Perry said all prom-goers will receive commemorative tickets without the offensive language and vowed the school will make changes “to produce well thought out, appropriate communications.”

Brace Yourselves

You will be asked and reminded a number of times as you read this to take in hand and swallow only the red pill, hypothetically speaking.

And, as you do this, you must also agree that we are living at the precipice of the most historical and potentially volatile times in our nation, with full knowledge that senior members of the US federal government have been doggedly working 24/7 to prosecute President Donald J. Trump, for crimes they know full well that he did not commit…

The Osama Obama administration has been weaponizing our intelligence agencies, using the CIA and FBI to place human assets, now verified to be the intelligence informant Stefan Halper, to spy on an opposition candidate. Someone within the CIA or FBI must have been an avid Rolling Stone’s fan when they gave their clandestine operation the code name ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ (from their song Jumpin’ Jack Flash). The Deep State of Obama hold-overs have used then, and continue to this very day, their political power, coercion of underlings and corrupt deal-making to destroy the presidency of their enemy, Donald Trump. The interference in the election process, and the ongoing blocking, stalling, and interfering into President Trump’s MAGA agenda, the likes of which have never been seen in our lifetime.

A cabal of corrupt FBI Agents began a faux-investigation, they inserted a spy inside his campaign, they created a fictitious dossier, paid for by HRC through the DNC, to the FISA Court to obtain illegal warrants. What have we become? How did we allow this to happen? How will we fix it? Although, we believe that AG Sessions will soon be very busy managing the Huber indictments, Sessions is not the person to handle the fix, but his boss is.

FBI Informant Stefan Halper Paid Over $1 Million by Obama Admin; Spied on Trump Aide After Election

Less than a week after Stefan Halper was outed as the FBI informant who infiltrated the Trump campaign, public records reveal that the 73-year-old Oxford University professor and former U.S. government official was paid handsomely by the Obama administration starting in 2012 for various research projects.

A longtime CIA and FBI asset who once reportedly ran a spy-operation on the Jimmy Carter administration, Halper was enlisted by the FBI to spy on several Trump campaign aides during the 2016 U.S. election. Meanwhile, a search of public records reveals that between 2012 and 2018, Halper received a total of $1,058,161 from the Department of Defense.

As previewed earlier, on Monday afternoon president Trump met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Chris Wray and the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, in a discussion of the latest developments in the bombshell report that the Obama administration used a longtime FBI and CIA asset, identified as 73-year-old Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, to infiltrate and spy on Trump’s campaign.

With the meeting concluded, the White House issued a statement according to which the DOJ said it has asked the inspector general to “expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s or the Department of Justice’s tactics concerning the Trump Campaign” and adds that “White House Chief of Staff Kelly will immediately set up a meeting with the FBI, DOJ, and DNI together with Congressional Leaders to review highly classified and other information they have requested.”

Why Do So Many Feds Sell Out to Ruling Cabal?

Many Federal Agents, aka Feds, “sell out” to the evil Ruling Cabal because of great pay, the best benefits and a sense of power; and the alternative would cause major personal losses and extreme “forever” problems…

The major crimes of the FBI are now being exposed in spades, and many of the good FBI special agents are now thoroughly disgusted with the top FBI leadership who have been functioning as RICO criminals for the Ruling Cabal.

And the worldwide Internet has become the greatest source of a new and broad based societal populism that is now perhaps an unstoppable threat to the Ruling Cabal.

The Cabal is believed by some insiders to be massively retaliating by A.I.-run back-removals of posts, censoring the large web forums they control like Facebook-type, google-type searches and Youtube-type web service providers, and by demonetizing the web as much as possible to restrict alt media websites and postings.

These actions to strike back at users who want truth and the Internet Truth-warriors that publish and broadcast it have begun to generate massive blowback, more spontaneous emerging populism and numerous new net private services to get around all these manipulations to restrict truth.

Everyday more and more evidence of serious Federal Agency and USG crimes of the Ruling Cabal are being disclosed on the Internet to the masses. We now know for certain that the Internet alt media disclosure of all the crimes and unimaginable evil of the Ruling Cabal across a broad base of society will eventually erode the hegemony of the Cabal’s six Controlled Major Mass Media (a virtual News and Media Cartel and and illegal monopoly), will unconsolidate the CMMM and will then displace the Cabal from ruling power.

This massive diffusion of hard core truth via the Internet from legitimate truth-Warriors detailing the actual evils of the Cabal is the ultimate antidote for the Cabal’s illegitimate and parasitical rule over America.

Once American populism reaches a certain threshold and critical mass of approximately 12%, it is expected that the whole Cabal Major Mass Media News Cartel of false-news will fail and collapse. We are stuck now at about 11% and that is why the Cabal is now locking down the Internet’s social websites, dropping National Security Letters on many if not most big web providers, forcing them to censor and remove many posts, bring in censors and demonetized alt media or Truther posters.

All the Cabal’s incredible damage can be alleviated by “We The People” refusing to cooperate with the USG corruption and working to organize politically. Once this critical mass is reached and folks organize politically around the Alt Media disclosed Truth, We The People can take the American Republic right back to 1913. Then all the illegal, unconstitutional systems that the Cabal set up in America to hijack and parasitize it can be neutralized and removed one-by-one in rapid succession.

Only by neutralizing all these evil Ruling Cabal systems set up right after the Federal Reserve coup d’état in 1913 can the Republic and the US Constitution and Rule of Law ever be restored. Yes, we have to take the whole USG system back to the initial hijacking of America in 1913 by the Ruling Cabal of Banksters from the City of London. All the corrupt institutions they set up, including the roots of the FBI, the IRS (their own private collection agency), the crooked Supreme Court which is not the highest court in the land which is the DC Court of Appeals, must be replaced or eliminated because they are illegal and unconstitutional as now comprised.

We need our own banking as a part of the US Dept of the Treasury, with real money backed by gold, silver, metals, and other commodities to be used by us without pernicious usury applied.

Every single evil system the Satanic Pedophile-based Ruling Cabal set up in 1913 has to be addressed, neutralized and all the Cabal’s assets clawed back using Military enforcement, due to the presence of the Cabal’s crimes of Treason and Sedition related to their 100-year drive to establish an illegal, unconstitutional Globalist NWO without the US Republic.

Analysis: How EU Founder Member Italy Went Eurosceptic

All eyes are on Italy as the far-right League and rebellious Five Star Movement close in on power, ringing alarm bells in Brussels as the country inches towards becoming the first EU founding member to have a eurosceptic government.

Italy has seen a surge of populist and anti-establishment sentiment as the country struggles to emerge from a decade-long economic crisis amid sky-high youth unemployment and hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving on its shores. Many Italians feel their country has been abandoned to deal with the migrants and have become disenchanted by the European Union as it is today.

How Socialist School Teachers Brainwashed the Snowflake Generation

Public education is now confusing children as to which bathrooms they should use, and what sex they are

A study found that Democrat professors outnumber Republican professors at 40 major universities by a ratio of 11.5 to 1. No wonder students, after having spent a fortune to be indoctrinated into progressivism, finish college as hard-core socialists. Hating capitalism, even though it provided them with opportunities and freedoms they would have never found in Castro’s Cuba or in North Korea’s prison state, they are adamant that socialism will bring them happiness and equality with a six-figure salary and five-star amenities.

The fact that academia is highly controlled by liberals (75% at Yale) has aided in shaping generations to be blind and unquestioning little communist sheeple.

Teachers unions like the National Education Association (NEA) and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) forced children in public education to take part in their professionally-organized protests.

Same teachers, administrators, and textbook writers, funded by billionaires like Bill Gates, Al Gore, George Soros and his many Open Society non-profit foundations shaped the thoughts and “feelings” of young and impressionable minds, young Americans who began to see themselves as global citizens even though they did not necessarily understand the issues clearly.

Our children worship at the altar of socialism, communism, and Islam, without really understanding why communism fell everywhere it was tried and why 100 million people living under communism were killed for wanting liberty and freedom of speech.

The same academics are forcing Common Core education on smart students so as not to hurt the “feelings” of other children and spare them embarrassment, dumbing down education for all. It is a touchy-feely snowflake generation that needs special spaces, corners, and rooms to hide from the reality of life otherwise they are “triggered” by visceral hate to destroy everything historical they disagree with.

Pope Francis to Gay Man —’god Made You Like This’

Juan Carlos Cruz, who was sexually abused, says pontiff told him God did not mind that he was gay

A survivor of clerical sexual abuse has said Pope Francis told him that God had made him gay and loved him, in arguably the most strikingly accepting comments about homosexuality to be uttered by the leader of the Roman Catholic church.

Juan Carlos Cruz, who spoke privately with the pope two weeks ago about the abuse he suffered at the hands of one of Chile’s most notorious paedophiles, said the issue of his sexuality had arisen because some of the Latin American country’s bishops had sought to depict him as a pervert as they accused him of lying about the abuse.

“He told me, ‘Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care. The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are,’“ Cruz told Spanish newspaper El Pais.

  1. “victims of right-wing violence” –
    I bet asking the islamic fellow working on a person with a knife: “Hello my friend, why are you stabbing me?” is all the proof one needs to see a violent right-wing attack, obviously from a Islamophobic Nazi local…

    • Can the USA act accordingly to the policy of Thuringia and grant me right of residence due to my unease caused by the only presence of muslims in my country?

  2. “French police…were confronted by a number of gun-carrying MEN”… Oh really? not by gun-carrying extraterrestrials? Starts to sound like the British Police when they are looking for “a man suspected of stabbing” – not for a cat or a pigeon.

  3. “..Due to an acute shortage of professional truck drivers the German trucking association has launched a new project to train asylum seekers for the job…” – well, this MUST be a joke, and a nasty joke indeed!

  4. I guess we now live in a state of civil war papered over by the vestiges of public politeness – smile at the Muslim even though you know he’d like to rip the smirk off your face. The collusion of the corrupt ruling elites, the anti-West invaders and the Marxist Left is being exposed for all to see.

    The good people of South Australia have had a guts full already. Their ‘No more mosques’ will soon become a groundswell of protest as the pendulum swings.

  5. Germany should exempt Muslim children from all testing even when it’s not Ramadan. It’s not like they’ll become decent members of society, even if you do manage to educate them.

  6. Also, every time I think about contacting a Catholic church about the possibility of converting, I read something else outrageous that this pope says and I’m like….nah.

    • Pope Frankie isn’t the Church. So I’m like wondering why you would conflate the two? Why not focus on all those pederast priests? I mean like if you’re going to choose a fly in the ointment?

      John Paul II and Benedict were great exemplars of Christian leaders. And after Frankie shuffles off this mortal coil, perhaps another competent leader will replace him. Meanwhile, in real life, faith is a personal calling that doesn’t ever include the person in the papal shoes.

    • “882 The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter’s successor, “is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful.”402 “For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.”403” (Catechism of the Catholic Church)

      You are wise to take pause. Consider instead the Anglican Church in North America, or the Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod), both liturgical.

  7. Re: “Why are loser Virgins becoming Terrorists?” “…relentless subjugation of masculinity created a generation of incels” (?!?)

    I didn’t watch the video, but in the immortal words of John McInroe, you cannot be serious! Whatever the problems (for men and women) created by the current reality vis-a-vis relationships between the sexes, neither feminists, leftists nor anyone else is to blame because some frustrated young men turn violent because they cannot get laid, other than themselves. That excuse has been proffered by young muslim men when accused of the rape of Western women (and sometimes accepted on the grounds of “cultural differences”).

    I’ve got news for you: between my divorce in 2009 (actually for some time before) and meeting the fine lady who’s shared my life for the last three years, I didn’t once think of taking out my aggression (?) by killing my fellow-humans. “Incels”? Get over yourselves.
