“They said we couldn’t lead the country over the cliff. Proved them wrong!”
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a hundred times, I bet.
“Hillary won the popular vote!”
Well, first of all, American presidents are elected by winning electoral votes, not simply popular votes. Hillary and Obama knew that but they still lost–soundly.
Second, we still don’t know how many of Hillary’s roughly 2.8 million more popular votes were even legal. Dead voters, duplicate voters, illegal voters–these are well known tricks used by the Democrats to inflate their votes. In Detroit alone, for example, more votes were cast than there were registered voters altogether!
Third, the vast majority of Hillary’s popular votes came from three or four densely populated urban areas: Los Angeles (and nearby urban centers), New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago. It is the definition of injustice that four points in the nation could dictate the future for the rest of the nation. Urban and pro-minority policies would win the day every time, forever.
Considering that about 70% of Hillary’s popular win came from California, it’s totally unsurprising that the borderline state has doubled down on the lawlessness and corruption that Hillary embodies.
“Beginning on Jan. 1,” reports the Washington Examiner, “prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right.”
SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution.
This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government with a two-thirds “supermajority.”
(See what a massive “popular victory” gets you? Did I mention that Republican candidates weren’t even on the ballots in California this November?)
To their credit, these deranged Democrats are “sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking.” Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side.
Pimping and pandering will still be against the law whether it involves running adult women or young girls. But legalizing child prostitution will only incentivize the increased exploitation of underage girls. Immunity from arrest means law enforcement can’t interfere with minors engaging in prostitution — which translates into bigger and better cash flow for the pimps. Simply put, more time on the street and less time in jail means more money for pimps, and more victims for them to exploit.
As Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, a national leader on human trafficking issues, told the media, “It just opens up the door for traffickers to use these kids to commit crimes and exploit them even worse.” Another prosecutor insightfully observed that if traffickers wrote legislation to protect themselves, it would read like SB 1322.
Unfortunately for Californians, SB 1322 isn’t an outlier — it’s only the tip of the liberal iceberg. 2017 will see the Golden State subjected to wave after wave of laws taking effect that are well-intentioned but disastrous embodiments of progressive utopianism.
In 1996, welfare reform was one of the greatest social legislation achievements of the last century, ending the lifetime welfare system and putting millions of Americans on the road to self-reliance and self-respect. It’s a tough provision that works — which was apparently irrelevant to Gov. Jerry Brown, who just signed a bill repealing that prohibition.
Henceforth, no matter how many children someone has while on welfare, the state government will ratchet up payments with each child, with no limit. Incredibly, the Democratic author of this bill claims she wants to discourage women from having more children while on welfare — but instead passed legislation replacing that effective reform with a law that restarts the cycle of welfare dependency.
In similarly inverted fashion, state Democrats have taken action to make California’s youth unemployment rate even worse by boosting the minimum wage. It is an empirical fact that minimum-wage hikes increase unemployment among those who are the least skilled and most in need of entry-level jobs — our youth.
And the list goes on.
Thanks to other new Democratic-sponsored bills, an estimated 50,000 felons will be voting in the next state election, many from their jail cells; if you go hunting with a buddy and lend him your shotgun, you’ll be breaking the law; state employees will be forbidden from traveling on business to states which prohibit transgender bathrooms. The parade of inane and idiotic legislation in California is virtually unending.
I grant that many good conservative Californians exist, but the state as a
hole whole is in the grip of liberal politicians who believe we can help underage prostitutes by making it legal for them to be prostitutes; who believe we can reduce welfare dependence by increasing opportunities to become dependent; and who think we can increase employment by making it more expensive to hire people.
It’s amusing that Californians think their plan to secede is threatening to the rest of America. The way the diseased state is headed, getting the political tumor that is California out of the body politic would be a blessing!
As for who DOES look forward to California legalizing underage prostitution, keep two phrases in mind: “Mexican drug cartels” and “Muslim occupation” (or dhimmitude).
In 2011 a ten-year child-sex trafficking ring in Minnestoa was busted. Twenty-nine people–all Somali Muslims–were indicted in the sex trafficking ring in which Somali gangs in Minneapolis and St. Paul allegedly forced girls under age 14 into prostitution in Minnesota, Tennessee and Ohio.
The indictment claims the ring involved three Minneapolis-based gangs — the Somali Outlaws, the Somali Mafia and the Lady Outlaws — and that all three gangs are connected. The men and women charged were either gang members or associates of the gangs, the indictment said. They range in age from 19 to 38.
As one viewer put it: “This is what Obama’s administration did and Hillary had planned on bringing in over 3 million more Muslims into the U.S. had she been elected. Trump, after the inauguration, will flush this filthy scum back to where they came from.”
Seeing as their prophet married a six-year-old and deflowered her three years later, Muslims are secretly thrilled with the “cultural diversity” that underage sex business would mean for them in California–as a starting point.
As for Mexico, while sex work is not completely legal in Mexico, most cities do have Zonas de Tolerancia (areas where prostitution is allowed), and this has made Mexico a huge destination for sex tourism and one of the world’s largest hubs for sex trafficking. The high profitability of prostitution in Mexico has inevitably led to the forcible exploitation of many girls as sex workers.
Mexico is currently on the Tier 2 Watch List of the State Department’s annual Trafficking in Persons Report, a designation given to countries that do not meet the minimum standards of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2003 (TVPRA), but which are still making efforts to comply with these guidelines. One of the reasons given for this designation is Mexico’s thriving child sex trafficking industry- there are 16,000 to 20,000 Mexican and Central American children who are currently being trafficked for sex in Mexico.
Remember: these are the people that the Democrats want to keep flooding into our nation.
If you really want to live in a Muslim-occupied version of Mexico, move to California before it’s too late!
