SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- According to the California Retailer's Association three cities in our state are among the top 10 in the country when it comes to organized retail crime--Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento.

Already we are seeing the negative impact it is having in San Francisco with stores permanently shutting down or closing early. It has become one of the most pressing issues in our city today.

Target has now acknowledged that San Francisco is the only city in America where they have decided to close some stores early because of the escalating retail crime.

For more than a month, we've been experiencing a significant and alarming rise in theft and security incidents at our San Francisco Stores, similar to reports from other retailers in the area.....More

STUNNING! In a Congressional First Pelosi Opens Satellite Field Offices for DC Capitol Police in Florida and California to Deal with Regional Threats​

In a remarkable display of how committed the Democrat party is to utilizing the narrative of domestic extremism for their own benefit, Nancy Pelosi is placing satellite field offices for the DC Capitol Police in key regions around the country. When we consider the FBI has field offices all over the country, you might ask: why does the Capitol Hill police need to expand beyond Washington DC?

Essentially, what Nancy Pelosi is doing is expanding the federal law enforcement mechanism of the legislative branch into specific areas where they can investigate political opposition armed with legal authority.

This is a concerning shift in events; however, there is a likelihood such a move is connected to the larger political goal of enhanced federal enforcement to quell any rebellion, while working in concert with the DOJ.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Capitol Police on Tuesday announced that the agency was opening regional field offices in California and Florida to investigate threats to members of Congress in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
Threats against members of Congress have increased in recent years. As of Tuesday, total threats so far in 2021 were double what they were at this point a year ago, according to Capitol Police.
[…] “At this time, Florida and California are where the majority of our potential threats are,” a department spokesperson said in a statement. “The field offices will be the first for the Department. A regional approach to investigating and prosecuting threats against Members is important, so we will be working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in those locations.”

Speaker Pelosi’s Husband Made Millions in Transactions Related to Recent House Bills – Democrats Claim She Had No Involvement – Move Along

The Pelosi family is likely the most corrupt family to ever be related to the US Speaker of the House.

Earlier today the Washington Examiner reported on Nancy Pelosi’s husband who made millions in recent transactions related to actions taken in the US House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, bought up to $11 million worth of Big Tech stocks in the last two months as an anti-tech package of bills makes its way through the House at the same time.
In May and June, Pelosi purchased $4.8 million worth of Google shares, up to $1 million worth of Amazon call options, up to $250,000 of Apple call options, and up to $5 million of call options for Nvidia, the large semiconductor, graphics, and electronics company, according to a financial disclosure form filed last week.

A call option is a financial contract that allows a buyer the right to purchase a stock or asset at a set price within a specific time period.
The stock transactions were completed just weeks before the House Judiciary Committee passed six bipartisan antitrust bills aimed at reining in tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Google, and Facebook......More

They even argue that Nancy and her husband Paul do not discuss any Gov. business in private

Lawless Texas Democrats Escape to Washington DC on Private Jet, Maskless with Crate of Beer — Rules Are for The Little People

Democrats take their beer with them to party in Washington DC.

At least 58 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.

Under the Texas Constitution, the lawmakers risk arrest by fleeing town during a special legislative session.

Democrats are FURIOUS about Voter ID laws and regulations on ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting.
Today’s Democrats know they must cheat to win.


The Democrats took a private plane — something most of their constituents can only dream of.
The Democrats brought their own booze — another perk for the elitist lawmakers.
And the Democrats are all maskless — something every American must wear on the plane.

Where’re the masks, ladies?

BREAKING: Texas House Republicans have approved an arrest warrant to bring House Democrats who fled the state back to the statehouse for the special session - KTRK

Texas House Democrats LEAVE THE STATE To Block Republican Voting Law

July 12, 2021

On Monday, Texas House Democrats left the state and broke quorum in an attempt to stop state Republicans’ new voting measures.

Texas House Democratic Caucus Chair Chris Turner, Mexican American Legislative Caucus Chair Rafael Anchía, Texas Legislative Black Caucus Chair Nicole Collier, Legislative Study Group Caucus Chair Garnet Coleman and Dean Senfronia Thompson released the following statement on the decision to break quorum:

“Today, Texas House Democrats stand united in our decision to break quorum and refuse to let the Republican-led legislature force through dangerous legislation that would trample on Texans’ freedom to vote.

“We are now taking the fight to our nation’s Capitol. We are living on borrowed time in Texas. We need Congress to act now to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act to protect Texans — and all Americans — from the Trump Republicans’ nationwide war on democracy.”



Gov. Greg Abbott slammed Democrats over the move, claiming it “inflicts harm on the very Texans who elected them to serve.”

“As they fly across the country on cushy private planes, they leave undone issues that can help their districts and our state,” said Abbott. “The Democrats must put aside partisan political games and get back to the job they were elected to do.”

Texas House Votes to Send Law Enforcement to Find, Return Absent Dems


Texas state House members reportedly voted 76-4 to send law enforcement to find and return absent Democrats "under warrant of arrest, if necessary," a day after dozens left the state in an effort to kill election legislation, the The Wall Street Journal reported.

The body cannot approve legislation without a two-thirds quorum of its 150 members.

Tuesday’s state House vote came as the state Senate was preparing to consider its own version of the elections bill, an ABC affiliate reported.

Both chambers of the GOP-controlled Texas legislature, in a special session that began last week, filed similar versions of the bill that would broadly tighten voting rules across the state, the Journal noted. Gov. Greg Abbott called the special session after Democrat House members walked out before a voting deadline at the end of the regular legislative session in May, denying a quorum needed to vote.

House Democrats staged another walkout Monday, and dozens boarded chartered planes bound for Washington, D.C., where they hope to draw national support for their fight. The legislators will have to remain out of the state for weeks to successfully run out the clock on the 30-day special session.

State Rep. Chris Turner, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said in a news conference on the steps of the Capitol Tuesday at least 57 of 67 Democrats in the chamber had formally asked for their voting machines to be locked, the Journal reported.

In the House, 80 members who came Tuesday morning voted to approve a procedural move to record who is present, ban members from leaving the chamber without approval, and call for law enforcement to track down absentee lawmakers — arresting them if necessary and forcing them to return to the chamber, the Journal reported.

A total of 63 of the body’s 67 Democrats were gone, two of them with approved absence, the news outlet reported.

"Public pressure is going to get them to return to Texas — I don’t think it will come to them being handcuffed," GOP stateRep. Matt Shaheen told the Journal.

While Texas Democrats have promised to stay in Washington until the end of the special session Aug. 7, Abbott could continue to call special sessions to pass the voting bill. Democrats acknowledged the only long-term solution was federal legislation.

"We can’t stay here indefinitely," said Democrat state Rep. Rhetta Bowers, the Journal reported. "Texas Democrats will use everything in our power to fight back. But we need Congress to act now."

Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke encouraged Twitter followers Monday to support the lawmakers, writing "These courageous public servants have put it all on the line for our democracy & the right to vote."

As of Monday evening, O’Rourke tweeted Democrats had raised over $142,000.

It's actually to control opposition to their ideology and has nothing to do with "extremism" - it's all about control.

NAACP Offers Bail for Texas Democrats Who Left State


After Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that Democrats in the Legislature who broke quorum and left the state would be arrested, the NAACP stated that it plans to pay the Democrats’ bail.

In a statement shared with The Hill, NAACP President Derrick Johnson said that “[W]ar has been declared on democracy, and we will support anyone who stands up to defend it. We are fully invested in good trouble.”

The NAACP also tweeted its support for the group of Democrats.

A group of 57 Texas Democrat legislators left the state in order to block a quorum needed to convene a special session. The group flew to Washington, D.C., and said that they will stay as long as necessary in order to deny the quorum. They are attempting to block legislation regarding election security.

But Abbott said that they would be arrested immediately upon return to the state, telling the local ABC affiliate KVUE that “[A]s soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done.” .....More
