Stockton, CA mayor introduces program to pay killers not to kill

Published

on

Earlier this month, I wrote a piece about how the Democrats have adopted the Marxist ideals of Democratic-Socialism, officially adding them to the party’s agenda heading into the 2018 and 2020 elections in their effort to move the country closer to becoming a post-Constitutional America.

Vital to their agenda is a belief in big government, the surrender of liberty and self-determination, and the destruction of free-market capitalism—an agenda that is growing in acceptance with the next generation of voters.

The list of socialist “solutions” to America’s “problems” is long . . . and getting longer. From government-run health care to newer ideas like government-funded universal basic income and government-guaranteed jobs for life, nothing is off-limits when it comes to creating a world where government provides everything it believes we need.

This brings us to the latest example of Democratic-Socialism from the laboratory of socialist government—California.

In the city of Stockton, CA, where Mayor Michael Tubbs is already preparing to launch a living wage program—at $500/month, it’s more like a government-provided allowance for recipients to spend however they wish—comes word from the 27-year-old Stanford graduate of a solution to the growing gun violence and gang problems in his city.

Tougher prison sentencing? Get serious. This is a California socialist we’re talking about.

Mayor Tubbs wants to solve the gun and gang problems the same way Democratic-Socialists always do—with a government check. The city of Stockton is considering issuing a check of up to $1,000/month to residents identified as “most likely to shoot somebody” under a program called “Advance Peace.”

Tubbs, a Stockton native and Stanford graduate who is all of 27 years old, wants to give at least $500 a month to a select group of residents. They’ll be able to spend it as they wish, for 18 months, in a pilot program to test the impact of what’s called guaranteed basic income.

If the very sound of that knocked you half off your chair, this next initiative might finish the job.

Stockton is about to award stipends of up to $1,000 a month to residents deemed most likely to shoot somebody. This program is called Advance Peace, and it’s modeled after a crime reduction program in the Bay Area city of Richmond.

What Tubbs is proposing is essentially paying criminals not to commit a crime, at least not a crime using a gun. Which begs the question, why stop there? If you actually believe you can pay a gang-banger not to kill, why not pay them not to rob or rape? Ridiculous, right?

In the interest of better marketing, I have a suggestion for a new name to give his program. I realize that this is California, but “Advance Peace” sounds a bit too 1960’s for me.

How about Cash for Criminals? Or Cash for Killers? I’ll let the mayor decide.

    The human species will go extinct before the end of the 21st Century. We are all guilty, and it will be good riddance. I am a 74 year old atheist Jew, so I am more guilty than you are. I may tie in next 60 seconds.

Jonathan Van Ness gives Democrats sound advice, gets demonized for it

Jonathan Van Ness gives Democrats sound advice gets demonized for it

The Democratic Party is in shambles. They’re still flustered over an election two years ago and have been pointing fingers at each other ever since. The far-left socialists have gained a foothold in the party, making it less likely they’ll be able to make a dent in the coming midterm elections.

“Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness knows this and voiced two apparently unpopular opinions that have enraged his fan base and made him the target of the far left. First, he made the logical statement that going to far to the left will hurt their chances of taking the House and Senate.

That was bad from the progressives’ perspective, but his follow up Tweet sent them reeling into triggered oblivion.

The narrative from the left is that ALL Republicans are racist. Therefore, Van Ness is no longer the leftist hero he once was. Shame. He was actually starting to make sense.

Andrew Cuomo’s sentiment is what drives the progressive movement

Andrew Cuomos sentiment is what drives the progressive movement

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo did not misspeak when he declared America “was never that great” earlier today. In fact, his press office doubled down on the statement. What was a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump’s campaign slogan is quickly becoming the primary message of his reelection campaign.

The spin now is that his press office was attempting to walk back his comment, but that’s not the case. They’re now taking the faux pas and driving it into the heart of his messaging.

Andrew Cuomo shocks crowd, says America ‘was never that great

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/15/andrew-cuomo-shocks-crowd-says-america-was-never-that-great.html“We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged, we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution,” he said.

Within hours, his spokeswoman tried walking it back. “The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” Cuomo’s press secretary, Dani Lever, said in a statement. “When the President speaks about making America great again – going back in time – he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions. The Governor believes that when everyone is fully included and everyone is contributing to their maximum potential, that is when America will achieve maximum greatness.”

Here’s the problem with all of this. It’s a notion that’s deeply embedded in the body of the progressive movement. They look at America’s history and see only flaws. There have definitely been bad times in America from slavery to the horrid treatment of native Americans, but in a progressive’s mind it was generally all bad. Capitalism, for example, has been to progressives what makes America evil instead of the engine upon which our nation has driven past the rest of the world.

The past that progressives see is one filled with hatred and intolerance. Yet, they do not see their own lack of tolerance for America’s past that contributed to our former greatness. They want to eradicate everything that’s not new, including Judeo-Christian values. Perhaps especially Judeo-Christian values.

There’s a reason right-leaning media outlets are jumping all over the comments while left-leaning ones aren’t too concerned about them. To the right, Cuomo’s statements were just shy of blasphemous. To the left, his words were a bold statement of their personal truths. They do not think America was great. They believe the only way American can ever be great is if we abandon the very things that made us great in the first place.

We should be a Christian nation. That’s not to say we need to abandon religious freedom or embrace a theocratic model, but to disregard the contributions of Judeo-Christian values for our nation since its founding is idiotic. Unfortunately, those values are seen only as roadblocks to the progressive agenda. This more than anything else is why they often openly denounce these values. They just don’t fit the progressive narrative.

Cuomo’s words won’t be fully walked back because he and so many other progressives hold his words as truth. Spinning it the way they are is only being done to suspend disbelief from moderates. For the progressive base, these words are part of their doctrine.

Even a liberal women’s rights group recognizes antisemitism is on the rise among Democrats

Even a liberal womens rights group recognizes antisemitism is on the rise among Democrats

Accusations of antisemitism are commonly laid on liberals as well as far-right white nationalists. Conservatives, mainstream Republicans, and moderate Democrats often point out the hypocrisy of the progressive wing of the Democratic party, but even some progressives are starting to see the problems.

Women’s March For All (WMFA) recognizes that the liberal movement they embrace has an ugly side as it pertains to Jews. The group, which detached itself from the original Women’s March on Washington when their antisemitic leadership embraced the teachings of Louis Farrakhan. While much of the WMFA’s agenda is still extremely progressive, it’s refreshing to see them speak out against the radical antisemitic leanings of their previous allegiances.

Progressive Feminist Group Calls on Democratic Party to Adopt Definition of Antisemitism

https://www.algemeiner.com/2018/08/13/progressive-feminist-group-calls-on-democratic-party-to-adopt-definition-of-antisemitism/In a petition launched on Friday and signed by some 120 people, Women’s March For All (WMFA) warned that antisemitism — “often cloaked as anti-Zionism” — “has now become a serious problem in liberal movements worldwide,” including in Canada and the United Kingdom.

The group was formed as an offshoot of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, after the movement’s leaders — Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Carmen Perez — came under fire in March for their praise of Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader who has railed against “Satanic Jews” and been accused of sharing misogynistic, homophobic, and transphobic views.

The Democratic party is at a crossroads. They are torn between the hateful nature of the socialist movement and the aging moderate wing. This move by the WMFA is brave because it calls for clear lines drawn by the party to prevent it from turning into a purely antisemitic hate group.

Here’s their statement:
