CA Illegal Alien Driver Licenses Have no ‘Federal Limits:’ Illegals can Vote and Board Airplanes

Remember how President Trump was treated for pointing out mass voter fraud in California?

There’s a reason for that.  Anyone who stumbles onto the truth is subjected to shrill criticism by the media and political establishments.

Fox News story this morning confirms what President Trump and millions of Californians already knew—that California Democrats have cooked up a recipe for massive voter fraud in California.

By granting Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens and then passing a new law automatically registering anyone with a Drivers License to vote, Democrats have made it so easy to vote that even a monkey could do it.  What makes their scheme so diabolical and ultimately effective, is the use of Alinksy-like smear tactics against anyone who dares questions the integrity of the vote in a state that outlawed voter ID.

Why is this important to point out?

Because Fox and other media outlets are completely missing the point.  The voter rolls in California are not secure, nor is not an accidental loophole as DMV and elections officials would have you believe.  This is an intentional scheme to make it possible to game the “intentional loopholes” or backdoors created by these new laws and jurisdictional restrictions and rivalries between state, county and federal agencies.

The biggest problem with today’s reporting on this story is that the crucial follow-up questions are never asked.  Instead of challenging this statement, Fox simply accepts it and prints it:

In response for clarification of the new policy, Secretary of State spokesman Sam Mahood said in a statement: “As is already required by federal law, anyone who registers to vote at the DMV must attest under penalty of perjury that they meet eligibility requirements — including citizenship. Moreover, under state law, the DMV is prohibited from sending to the Secretary of State any information from persons who apply for an AB60 California driver license.”

If you dig deeper, you’ll find a few things that the California Democrats—who run the Secretary of State and the DMV—have failed to disclose in recent interviews, things that make it clear there’s a plan to make it easier to commit voter fraud:

  1. These AB60 Illegal Alien “federally-restricted” Drivers Licenses were never supposed to be used to vote or to board a plane, according to the Democrat authors of this bill.  Turns out, they lied.  (In 2015, I wrote about how TSA had decided to accept AB60 DL’s as acceptable identification to board a plane—in spite of the disclaimer on the front reading: “Federal limits apply.”
  2. When anyone returns a signed voter registration card and fails to affirm US citizenship , the California Secretary of State instructs county registrar of voters to simply “treat as normal” and put on the voter rolls. The California Secretary of State is encouraging duly elected election officials to violate their oath of office and enable voter fraud. (See left).





There is one simple way this could all be cleared up.  Simply require ID to vote at the polls, and cross-reference all existing databases against the voter rolls to get rid of dead people, non-citzens and illegal aliens who hold AB60 drivers licenses.

Since the DMV and California Secretary of State are so confident there are no problems with illegals voting, I would like to throw down a challenge to them:

  1. Run the DMV database against the current voter rolls and flag any AB60 Drivers License holders who are also registered to vote currently.  Then do a test monthly to ensure that no one who receives a federally-restricted license is ‘accidentally’ registered to vote under the new system which automatically registers all drivers license holders.
  2. Run a check of the Juror Rolls against the Voter Rolls and flag for any non-citizens who refuse jury duty on the basis of lack of citizenship.
  3. Make all results part of the public record.

If they’re not willing to do either of these checks, they shouldn’t be in charge of anything related to our elections in California, period.

California State Senate Leader: ‘Half My Family’ Here Illegally

California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions.

De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.

He said (at 1:27:34 in the video that follows):

… I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.

Testifying before the Senate Public Safety Committee, De Léon defended the widespread practice by illegal aliens of using fraudulent documents to work and obtain taxpayer-paid benefits, dismissing any concerns California citizens may have about being the target of identity theft.

In an interview the following day on KPCC 89.3’s Air Talk with Larry Mantle, De Léon expressed outrage that President Trump’s executive order would include those who possess fraudulent documents or committed identity theft to obtain a Social Security number.

“Someone simply who received or purchased a [fraudulent] Social Security card down at McArthur Park, or elsewhere in my district would be eligible immediately for mass deportation,” De Léon said (at 11:45 in the link above).

“He’s trying to deputize police officers — and with the suspicion of someone being a criminal or having a broken taillight, that they themselves, as a local police officer, could call the ICE agents immediately and have that person deported without even legal due process.”

Host Larry Mantle asked him: “… First of all, I just — I want to make sure I understand correctly: You don’t think purchasing a phony Social Security card and number should be a deportable offense?”

De Léon replied: “I don’t think so … the vast majority of immigrants — hard working immigrants — have done that.  I can tell you I have family members specifically who came here as undocumented immigrants, and they did the same thing. That’s what you need to do to survive in this economy.”

Mantle objected: “But of course the problem is, — and I know people too — who’ve had their Social Security numbers and identities stolen as a result of that….”

De Léon minimized the problem, saying it was not the same as “Russian” hacking.

Breitbart News’ calls to the President Pro Tem’s office were unreturned.

Top 10 Stupidest New Laws in California for 2017

I’m not in the habit of complaining at the outset of a column, but I’ve taken on a nearly impossible task — figuring out which, of the hundreds of new California laws about to go into effect, are the stupidest.

Don’t laugh.  I’m serious.

It’s really, really hard to keep the list at 10 with hundreds of hare-brained schemes that became real laws.

After all, for far too long, the California legislature has been a “conservative-free zone” — even though there were a handful of “Republicans” occupying seats and taking up space.

I’m going to list the new laws in order of their egregiousness to me, but I’m open to additions or wholesale re-ordering if you care to comment.

Given that Californians are facing 898 new laws going into effect on January 1st, 2017, there’s plenty to hate.

  1. Prop. 63: “2nd Amendment Nullification” Act.  Although various portions go into effect in various years — yes, they staggered implementation of this “critically needed reform,” some out to 2019 — this is the most sweeping assault on our long-cherished, God-given natural right as Americans to protect our lives and our freedom.  It requires you to pass a background check and pay for a permit to buy ammunition for the gun you may have just passed a background check to buy.  Yeah, that’ll stop criminals — who buy their guns and ammo in parking lots from other criminals. WooHoo! Next, it makes high-capacity magazine (any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds) illegal to possess — even if you bought it prior to the current ban and ownership was previously considered grandfathered.  This law should make it clear that the goal of the left is not “safety” — it’s control.
  2. SB880: “Bullet Button Ban.”  For years, California Democrats have sought to ban a made-up classification of semi-auto rifles with “evil features” that they re-named “assault weapons” for propaganda purposes. Every year, California Democrats attempt to increase control over this “hated group” of guns — until they finally outright ban all semi-automatics.  This law will not do a single thing to further public safety, as the San Bernardino terrorist attack illustrated — determined mass murderers will simply ignore and work around all gun control laws — as if they are just words on paper. One last bit of irony: in a previous legislative session, this same bill was sponsored by none other than disgraced State Senator Leland Yee. If that name sounds familiar, you’re right.  Leland Yee wanted to “protect” Californians from “assault weapons” on our streets — that is, until he was arrested for trafficking fully automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades in exchange for campaign contributions.  He’s currently serving a five-year prison sentence.
  3. SB3: Minimum Wage Hike to $15/hour by 2020.  As a result of a strong socialist push by unions and complicit governments — such as the union-controlled California legislature—businesses are looking to eliminate as many jobs as possible, investing in automation instead. When you combine this with unchecked illegal immigration — where you have an unlimited labor pool willing to work for subpar wages under the table — the future for entry-level jobs and small business owners in California is bleak.
  4. AB1785 The “Hands Free” Law.  This is another example of government gone wild.  AB1785 prescribes driver behavior so severely that in and of itself, I believe it will cause more accidents — and more deaths.  Not only must the phone be dash mounted — meaning you’ll have a permanent distraction right in front of you — but you may not text, take photos or video, or enter GPS destinations while driving. Fat chance of stopping those activities with a mere $20 fine. The bill does stipulate that “the only time a driver is allowed to touch the device is when he or she is activating or deactivating a “feature or function.” However, that process should only involve a “single swipe or tap of the driver’s finger,” according to the bill,” reports.   How about “hands off” my phone instead of an unenforceable “hands free” law?
  5. AB 1732: Single-User Restrooms.  If you’ve ever had to go so badly that you used the opposite sex restroom at a gas station or Starbucks, then perhaps you think this law is needed. But do we really need another law regulating bathrooms? Some businesses have already put signs on their single-use restrooms designating use by either sex.  And sometimes people just take it upon themselves. I can’t help but think this law is unnecessary and diminishes us as a society a little.

    Want to save 20% off a Front Sight membership?
  6. SB 1383: Controlling Cow Flatulence.  Not making this up.  In spite of the fact that 53 California dairy farmers went bankrupt, moved out of state, or just closed down this year, the Marxist-Progressives are back at it again. Capture cow farts or suffer heavy fines.  CARB (CA Air Resources Board) suggests inserting a tube into the cow’s digestive system and venting into a backpack.  Even liberals admit that laws like this, where government tries to control the uncontrollable, can have undesirable economic consequences.  Lost jobs, lost industries, lost revenue. Stupid law.
  7. AB 857 Ghost Gun Ban.  Even if you mfg. your own gun—starting with an 80% receiver—that requires you to have special skills and tools to complete the machining, you must now register it and get a serial number from the CA DOJ.  The purpose of this law is simply to get your name and your firearm on a list for eventual confiscation.  Once again, control—not public safety—is the goal.
  8. SB1322 Legalizing Child Prostitution This law bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with 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.  Now that is nuts. I understand the idea of trying to not punish the victim, but certainly granting judges discretion is better than legalizing and therefor “green-lighting” behavior that is so harmful to the individual child.
  9. Prop 57  Early Release for so-called Non-Violent Criminals.  This was Governor Jerry Brown’s baby—the crown jewel of his prison reform initiatives.  Among those offenses he considers “non-violent”:   *Rape of an unconscious person *Human trafficking involving sex acts with minors *Assault with a deadly weapon. Blogger Felicia Wilson summed it up well.  “…Call me crazy, but shouldn’t a crime that includes the word rape or assault be considered, I don’t know… violent?”
  10. AB2466 Low-Level felons serving sentences outside of state prison get to keep their right to vote.  Hmm.  Wonder which party this could possibly help?  Just like the “illegal alien vote”, Democrats will have the felon vote locked down.  Simply about protecting their power and making it permanent.

When California Democrats promised to take to the streets to defend the rights of convicted felons, illegal aliens and welfare recipients, they weren’t kidding.  If only there were as serious about cracking down on immigration cheats and violent criminals as they are about penalizing law-abiding citizens and gun owners, California would have more jobs, less crime–and might be a place people want to come instead of flee.
