Guest Post by John C. Velisek USN (RET):
In the three parts preceding, I described how the state of California has suffered under the tyrannical rule of one-party. Progressive socialists have commandeered the state government, and ruled by fiat from a Marxist Governor and legislature.
I want now to discuss the nuts and bolts of the sedition being perpetrated by the progressive socialists and a few of the people who are responsible for the total collapse of a once golden state ad the people who inhabit it.
On January 25, 2017, the Executive Order EO13768 signed by President Trump made it official government policy that:
Sanctuary jurisdictions across the United States willfully violate Federal Law in an attempt to shield illegal aliens from removal from the United States. Section 9(a) of this executive order is specified in the non-allocation of federal monies that are to be withheld from jurisdictions that are non-compliant.
Our Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown ran to the nearest self-serving news media outlet and stated that this administration has declared a war on California. Our socialist governor tweeted:
“At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divided and polarize America. These political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here.”
Jerry, it is you who doesn’t work. A USA/KPIX poll conducted, after Marxist San Francisco Mayor Libby Schaff issued her warning, shows that 61% of San Francisco residents (65% of whites, 61% of blacks %, 5% of Hispanics and 53% of Asians) believe legal authorities should assist federal law enforcement in detaining illegal alien criminals.
Who are these people who have worked so feverishly to destroy this once proud state? They comprise the leaders of the progressive socialist movement.
Senate leader Kevin de Leon was the author of the sanctuary laws that the state has used to shield criminal illegal aliens and consider them a privileged, protective class above the citizens of the state.
Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, another progressive socialist, declared along with other fellows Democrats, that there is no sensible place for barriers between California and Mexico. It appears that Rendon would instead want California to become part of Mexico, a La Raza and MEChA platform. He claims a “historical link” between Sacramento and Mexico City as the basis for destroying the state, contrary to what a plurality of the citizens expect and deserve.
Both Rendon and de Leon claim they are “Proud Californians,” not “Proud Americans.” They have already, in their minds, ceded the American citizenship of the population in California to Mexico.
Xavier Becerra, our dysfunctional State Attorney General, is case in point of the racist progressive socialism that has taken over the government of a once glorious state. While going to Stanford Law School, Bercerra was a member of MEChA, a radical Chicano organization that believes the entire southwest of our country was stolen from Mexico and should rightfully be given back. The state was ceded LEGALLY to the United States in 1848 by the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe de Hidalgo, and endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America in his election to Congress in 1996.
In 2002 Becerra supported the Chicano Coalition for Peace and Social Justice, a group long infiltrated by the Communist Party USA. Nothing in his past shows a great deal of patriotism for the United States, nor a foundation for the oath of office that he took when Jerry Brown appointed him Attorney General of California.
Speaking at a conference hosted by Campaign for America’s future, it is impossible for Becerra not to have known the ideology of the group. Based on principles first put forth by Saul Alinksy, Cloward, and Piven, and others, the agenda of the CAF is the “delegitimization and dismantle on conservative ideals, values and agenda through higher taxes, a destabilized economy, health care, education and the prevalence of social welfare programs.
Bercerra is not the only progressive socialist who is working toward the collapse of California and the entire Southwest using Alinsky style tactics. The Socialist Party USA announced in 2009 that there are 70 Congressional members currently in their caucus.
In California alone there are many including Lynn Woolsey (CA-06), Diane Watson (CA-33),Xavier Becerra (CA-31), Sam Farr (CA-17), Bob Filner (CA-51), Michael Honda (CA-15), Barbara Lee (CA-09), George Miller (CA-07) Laura Richardson (CA-37), Lucille Roybal Allard (CA-34) Linda Sanchez (CA-47), Pete Stark (CA-13), Maxine Waters (CA-35).
These socialists are also in the forefront of the LBGT disaster, leading to a future where in California it is now becoming another overstepping of the constitutional rights that American citizens have fought so long and hard to keep. Working its way through a tyrannical progressive socialist legislature now is California Assembly Bill 2943. Using the Consumer Fraud Act as a backstop, the state is attempting to ban:
“the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer..advertising, offering to engage in or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.”
It forbids efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual attractions or feelings towards individuals of the same sex. Many people I have discussed this with have two questions. Will this put an end to the same sex indoctrination taking place through groups like Planned Parenthood in our schools, and,
will the Bible now be the target of book burning like in Hitler’s Germany, and banned from sale in the state?
This agenda is nothing more than the opportunity to ban books, conferences, and counseling that advocates Muslim, Jewish and Christian views on gender and sexual orientation.
Before you think that this will never get through with the honest hard working Christian people in the state, first look to another California Assembly Bill (AB2497,) that imposes taxes on firearms, ammunition, the sale, storage, use and other consumption of firearms.
In response to these overreaches of our tyrannical progressive socialist state government, people are starting to wake up. There will be a revolution if this continues, but not the type that the Marxist elitists appear to expect.
