California is rolling out a program on Monday that will give $500 cash payments to unauthorized immigrants shut out of traditional government aid programs because of their immigration status. The New York Times reported the $75 million taxpayer-funded program funded will be conducted by phone to reduce in-person contacts. It's expected to distribute cash to 150,000 people and the maximum amount awarded per household is $1,000. "California is the most diverse state in the nation. Our diversity makes us stronger and more resilient," Gov. Gavin Newsom said (snip) "Every Californian, including our undocumented neighbors and friends, should know that California is here to support them

Can each person collect in each county? Sure, why not. It's a lesson in voter training.

Hey Governor Newsom! How many Police, nurses, teachers, doctors, EMT's will need to be laid off because of this? I thought California didn't have any money due to a budget crisis? Your giveaway to illegals should disqualified California from any federal aide.

Attorney General William Barr has installed a new top deputy over the federal prosecutor's office for Washington, raising concerns that a key U.S. attorney's office handling multiple investigations of interest to President Donald Trump is becoming further politicized. The arrival of Associate Deputy Attorney General Michael Sherwin - who won the conviction of a Chinese trespasser at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida in September - has triggered new accusations that Justice Department leaders are bypassing career prosecutors in the office and intervening in cases favoring the president's allies, current and former federal prosecutors in the office said.

A judge in rural Oregon on Monday tossed out statewide coronavirus restrictions imposed by Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, saying she didn’t seek the Legislature's approval to extend the stay-at-home orders beyond a 28-day limit. Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff issued his opinion in response to a lawsuit filed earlier this month by 10 churches around Oregon that argued the state's social-distancing directives were unconstitutional. Brown filed paperwork within hours seeking an emergency review by the Oregon Supreme Court and a hold on the ruling until the high court could take it up. Her attorneys had asked the judge to stay his ruling until that time, but he declined.

The business arm of China’s most prestigious university met its creditors on April 30, and the outcome has shaken investors’ faith in widely used contracts for Chinese offshore bonds. The bankrupt Peking University Founder Group used a short cut known as a keepwell deed to borrow US dollars from foreign investors. Now, its state-appointed restructuring administrator has thrown doubt on the enforceability of these contracts by classifying them as pending recognition. This decision impacts bondholders of about 16 per cent, or US$96 billion, of outstanding offshore bonds issued by Chinese companies, according to Redd, a market data provider.

The Chinese government may enforce several "countermeasures" against U.S. companies—including Apple—in retaliation for the Trump administration's plans to crack down on shipments of semiconductors to Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei from chipmakers worldwide. According to analysts cited in the state-run Global Times, such retaliatory measures from China towards large American companies such as Apple, Cisco and Qualcomm could be akin to a "nuke bomb." "China will launch rounds of endless investigations on those firms, just like swords hanging over their head. It will dampen investors' confidence and squeeze their income in the Chinese market,"

China’s commerce ministry says it will take “all necessary measures” in response to new U.S. restrictions on Chinese tech giant Huawei’s ability to use American technology, calling the measures an abuse of state power and a violation of market principles. An unidentified spokesperson quoted Sunday in a statement on the ministry’s website said the regulations also threatened the security of the “global industrial and supply chain.” “The U.S. uses state power, under the so-called excuse of national security, and abuses export control measures to continuously oppress and contain specific enterprises of other countries,” the statement said.

Africa’s largest country and biggest economy, Nigeria, has become the first country in the region to speak out against China for the “mal-treatment, discrimination, illegal detentions, forceful evictions and xenophobic attacks” that its people faced in China during Covid-19. Responding strongly to the ill-treatment meted out to its citizens, the African country has now asked its law ministry to help its citizens file cases in the international court against the ill-treatment they faced in China. Going a step further, Nigeria has also cracked down on thousands of Chinese immigrants who were legally or illegally staying in the country and is sending them back to China.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is proposing to significantly shrink the footprint of California's prison system, partly because of massive budget cuts prompted by the pandemic but also because of philosophy. The revised budget he sent to state lawmakers this week envisions closing two state prisons in the coming years; cutting nearly one in five of the 43 inmate firefighter camps; and eventually closing all three state-run juvenile prisons. He's also seeking unspecified increases to sentencing credits that allow inmates to leave prison more quickly. And he proposes to shorten parole to a maximum of two years, down from five years for felonies, and let ex-felons earn their way off supervision

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday revived a lawsuit from the Maryland and Washington, D.C. attorneys general that accuses President Trump of violating the Constitution’s Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses by benefiting from use of the Trump International Hotel by foreign and U.S. officials. The case previously had been ordered dismissed by a Fourth Circuit panel. But the full roster of judges reheard the case and, in a 9-6 decision, determined Trump cannot have the court overrule a lower court’s decision to deny him certification to appeal before trial.

A friend, who thinks politically as we do here, phoned this morning after just hearing Barr's comments doubting that Obama or Biden would be criminally prosecuted. We both would love to see it, but consider how destructive the Dems' legal efforts to get Trump to testify so they could prosecute him have been for the past three years, and then imagine what could happen if the precedent were set to prosecute future presidents of either party. Such a spectacle would draw worldwide attention and obliterate everything else our country needed to be doing that would have more impact on our country's, and even the world's, future.
