California bans state-funded travel to South Carolina, bringing total to 10 states

Original Article

The day may be coming when California public employees are permitted to travel on business only to blue states. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Tuesday added South Carolina to the growing list of states banned from state-sponsored travel, citing the Palmetto State’s 2018 budget bill allowing faith-based adoption and foster-care services to operate according to their religious beliefs. “The State of South Carolina recently enacted a measure that sanctions discrimination against families in the placement of children in need of homes,” said Mr. Becerra in a statement. “The State of California stands strongly against any form of discrimination.” He cited California Assembly

How about those 10 states announce that in the event of wildfires, mud slides or earthquakes, they wont be sending first responders.

On a personal note, I won´t travel to CA and refrain from purchasing CA products until they come to their senses.

#8, great idea. Fire fighters from Deplorable States should not risk their lives for Californians.

I have boycotted California wine for years and refuse to travel to the place. I’ve been to California many times, but no more.

We´ve met more than a few people from CA who have moved to our area of SC. They have brought their politics with them.
So they move here for jobs, lower taxes, and then attempt to change the state from red to blue.

You can stop spewing your crap about tolerance and one nation bulljive. The left has no intention of living in harmony with any who dare not comply with their beliefs.

Our fault in the founding of this nation was to be so tolerant that we inadvertently opened the door to intolerance of our very own most cherished beliefs.

A Californian here, sorry. I´m not going to do an apology tour.

This state has gone to the dogs. There are few of us still standing strong in SoCal. Family and home investment until retirement make it a challenge to move right now.

That all being said, this means what? Governmental officials and illegals funded by taxpayers can´t travel to SC? I don´t think the majority of people living here will be affected by this. If you count Hollyweird because of their "boycott nature", you might add a few nuts who won´t visit.

Sounds like a majority of you out there are sane and don´t want the nut jobs out here to plant themselves in your beautiful states. As for us, when we go, we´ll be taking conservatism to a blue state--more family. We try to anti-pollute wherever we go.

MAGA!!! KAG!!! California was a beautiful state--some of the people still are.

Despair not, #22, when you sell your California home you can buy three homes of the same quality in many other states. Your retirement income will go a long way after dumping those ten percent local taxes.

Please do not tell your friends and neighbors that little secret unless they are sane.

While in San Diego a while back I saw a real estate ad for a small cottage with a half-million dollar price tag and it was located on a "HUGE QUARTER ACRE LOT." That´s the size of the vegetable garden in most flyover states.

California thought police in action. This is just another step in criminalizing any thought that does not conform to Progressive theology.

When anybody can adopt a child, it allows the possibility for that child to be exploited. Look up "orphan trains." Faith-based adoption and foster-care services try to prevent child exploitation.

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy stunned House investigators recently by all but announcing the existence of secret FBI recordings of Trump campaign foreign policy volunteer adviser George Papadopoulos, made in the summer of 2016 by an undercover FBI operation. Gowdy made the revelation in an interview Sunday with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "There are a lot of serious questions that need to be asked" during Attorney General William Barr's investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Gowdy said. Among them: "Where are the transcripts, if any exist, between the informants and the telephone calls to George Papadopoulos?"

Australia’s dysfunctional, unpopular, conservative government (the Liberal and National parties, currently in coalition, sit on the right in Australian politics) held onto power for a third term in Saturday’s national election. This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

Three years after the twin shocks of President Trump's triumph in the Republican primaries and the narrow win for "Leave" in the Brexit referendum, the evidence has never been stronger that the world has entered an era of anti-liberalism. Later this week, voters across Europe go to the polls to vote in EU parliamentary elections that could deliver a quarter or more of the seats to the continent's right-wing populists and nationalists. Meanwhile, exit polls in India suggest that Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party will win re-election when results are announced on May 23.

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases. Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Democratic leaders in Congress proved the perils of “jumping the shark” this month. The phrase comes from the 1977 episode of the television comedy “Happy Days” in which one of its leading characters, the “Fonz,” jumped over a shark in a water skiing stunt in swim trunks along with his signature leather jacket. That moment was viewed as a desperate ratings stunt by a dying television series struggling to keep viewers engaged. Today, the phrase has come to define similar instances of desperation. With the many overhyped political moments of the last two years, it is not clear when the partisan shark jump occurred. Soon after the appointment of special counsel

Cohen stood up and yelled for Trump to be impeached during a Democratic Steering and Policy Committee meeting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), prompting Pelosi to push back saying, "This is not about politics, it's about what's best for the American people," according to Politico. Cohen, who voted to move impeachment proceedings forward in December 2017, also brought up former President Bill Clinton's impeachment proceedings during the committee hearing, saying he faced impeachment "over sex."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established.

San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
