SOJ Joins Sheriff's Association's Call for Action

On Sanctuary State

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The State of Jefferson joins the California Sheriff's Association and National Sheriff's Association, in their call for Congress to, “take action and pass sensible legislation that doesn't hamstring law enforcement.” The citizens of the twenty-one counties that encompass the State of Jefferson have long supported their county sheriffs who have declared they will comply with Federal Immigration Law, should the Governor sign SB 54. The Jefferson leadership has been outspoken about Brown and his administration putting the needs of illegal aliens (criminals), before that of the health and safety of American Citizens.

SB 54 not only bars sheriffs and police from asking people about their immigration status or participation in most federal immigration enforcement activities, but also would largely prohibit school and security officers, from using money or staff to investigate, question, hold or arrest people for immigration violations.

State of Jefferson also supports efforts by Congressman Tom McClintock and others who are looking at ways where cities and counties who are within a Sanctuary State would be able to file and be awarded federal grant monies. The Counties of Tehama and Siskiyou and the cities of Anderson and Lincoln have already adopted Resolutions declaring they will comply with Federal Immigration Laws.

Efforts continue by residents in many of the Northern rural counties, requesting that their County Supervisors also take a stand adopting similar Resolutions, and also officially support their County Sheriffs who have taken a vow to uphold the laws of our United States Constitution.

Those of Jefferson are not alone in their opposition of Sanctuary counties and cities. In a recent poll by the University of California, Berkeley, 74% of Californian's opposed Sanctuary Jurisdiction.

“The passage of SB 54 is just another example of Brown and his cohorts ignoring the voice of the people, just as with the passage of the recent gas tax increase, along with the lack of representation that exists for rural residents in the California State Legislature,” said a Jefferson spokesperson. Adding, “It is time that Brown and his administration start respecting California citizens and our law enforcement officers, who everyday risk their lives, diligently doing their jobs to protect their communities.”

Northern California Fires

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the families who have lost loved ones and their homes due to the horrific wildland fires in the northern counties. As we witnessed the devastation and losses that have occurred in California, Texas, Florida and the islands of the Caribbean, we also witnessed the best that is America.

Flying a flag above the waters or ashes, was a show of pride and hope.  There was no distinction of black or white, gender, religion. Just Americans helping Americans. We all witnessed the same at the Las Vegas concert venue.

Those that stand out above all the rest, are the first responders: firefighters, law enforcement, medical providers and the many of the men and women of our armed forces. We thank you and appreciate all you do every hour and each day of the year.

May God Bless you and our Country.
Governor Brown Adds To California's Problems
California's sanctuary state law is the perfect example of Governor Brown and his crony’s socialist agenda for our State. The law demands that Federal Laws be broken; it orders law enforcement officers to break those laws. Then the law imposes a blanket censorship on free speech by limiting what law enforcement officers can and cannot say. The law rejects the idea of the Union of Sovereign States and instead creates a singular sovereign State of California, a State that that now elects to pick and choose what Federal Laws to obey. At minimum the State of California has rejected laws on drug abuse and illegal immigration.

Let's not forget that Governor Brown also took this a step further by violating both the U.S. Constitution and State Constitution by making an illegal agreement on behalf of California with the People's Republic of China to enforce the Paris Accord in contravention to the wishes of the President of the United States.

As a social mechanism, the sanctuary state law is equally disastrous. Previously Governor Brown declared, California welcomes all “illegal” immigrants. The trust of recent legislation in Sacramento has been to make sure people coming here illegally in violation of Federal Law have access to:
 
  • free legal services
  • free K-12 education
  • free or comped college
  • driver's license handed out with Department of Vehicles which effectively automates voter registration
  • free legal advice on how to qualify for Medical Obama Care
  • housing assistance, etc.

You name it, California is raking in the Federal tax dollars to provide it....free. That ought to make the folks in the other 49 states happy.
 
California already has a Welfare Problem

Sixteen of its almost 40 million people are on MediCal, the State's version of Medicaid.
 
California already has a Housing Problem

After 60 years of environmental controls blocking home construction, there is a massive shortage of housing; and, tiny tract homes in the boondocks are now selling for more than a Half Million Dollars.
 
California has a Crime Problem

The State's crime rate has doubled as Governor Brown et. al. empty the State's prisons rather than build new prisons to incarcerate criminals. Brown did the same thing in his previous two terms as governor. He changed the prisons to correctional facilities and his judges were so weak that the people recalled three State Supreme Court appointees.

And, on October 11, 2017, just a few days after the Las Vegas shooting, Governor Brown signed SB620, that allows judges to decide against imposing prison sentencing enhancements of 10 or more years where firearms are used in committing a felony.
 
California has a Bankruptcy Problem

The unfunded liability State Pension Fund scandal has become a daily news diet of local governments facing bankruptcy. The government employee's answer to the pension financial meltdown is to cut fire, police, library services, and ignore the maintenance of infrastructure.

The Jefferson Messenger - Oct 7, 2017


The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 19 . October 7, 2017 . Volume 1 
Legislative Dinosaurs

It’s that time of year again when our mighty governor is soaking his hand in ice water to numb the pain of signing so many bills into law.  The feverish pace of turning Californian’s into criminals, criminals into a protective class, stripping away your inalienable rights, rubber stamping the construction of a casino to anyone who’s relatives came over the Aleutian Islands about 10,000 years ago, falling on the sword of climate change and stepping on the federal government’s authority over immigration has everyone at the Capitol running off for another long vacation.

Let’s begin with the last one.  SB54 is our new Sanctuary State Bill that prohibits any level of California government to aid the federal government with its police powers when it comes to immigration.  Readers of this column should know by now that the author herein is no fan of federal overreach, but this is actually one of the enumerated powers that the federal government does enjoy.  One can only wonder how long this seditious behavior will be tolerated by our friends in Washington DC.

Everyone is familiar by now with SB52, the tax increases on fuel and vehicle registration.  The Feinstein Omnibus Welfare Act is what it should be called.  The bullet train to nowhere is under contract to Diane’s husband.  The cost overruns alone on a two mile stretch of track near Fresno is already $2 Billion dollars.  That is correct, with a “B”.

AB398 is the gem that swaps the highly illegal fire fee for the carbon trading scheme till 2030.  In a deal to stop ripping off rural Californians, they decided that it was better to perpetuate the carbon lie with their bogus Cap and Trade program instead.

AJR14 Chinese Exclusion Act – ok, common sense, I get this, but it also blasts President Trump’s orders on immigration.  This is one of the keys to California’s biggest failures: its inability to address one thing and one thing only in a bill.  Who would have the guts to vote against a combo bill like this?  Vote for it and your aligning yourself with the out of control DACA crowd which is only a minor transgression compared to voting against it and proving yourself an out and out racist.

A quick list of some other infringements coming our way:
  • ACA1 Greenhouse Gas Reserve Fund is now in our constitution
  • AJR20 Swearing allegiance to the Paris Climate Accord
  • AB552 United Water Conservation District coming after groundwater though inspections and “fees”
  • AJR24 Urges Congress not to adopt Concealed Carry Reciprocity laws that CA might be required to follow
And why is this article titled the way it is?  Though AB1540, we now have an official state dinosaur - Augustynolophus morrisi.  With all the machinations they put through the sausage factory this year, they wasted valuable legislative time on picking a state dinosaur.  Unbelievable.
