Confusion Over Mask Mandate. The largest school district in California will now require masks regardless of vaccination status.

"The Los Angeles Unified School District will require all students and employees who are returning for in-person instruction to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing — regardless of vaccination status, the district announced Thursday.

"'This is in accordance with the most recent guidance from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health,' Interim Superintendent Megan K. Reilly said in a statement."

Filthy Migrant Tent Camps? Under a Biden/Harris Administration

Unaccompanied migrant children housed at a U.S. government tent camp inside the Fort Bliss Army base in Texas faced filthy conditions and lacked access to adequate mental health services, according to a whistleblower complaint submitted to Congress and government watchdogs on Wednesday.

Two civil servants in the federal government who volunteered to work at the tent site said distraught migrant children, including some with suicidal thoughts, were referred to staff who were not qualified to assess their trauma and mental health needs. In some cases, children's requests to speak to a counselor were denied or dismissed, the federal volunteers said.

Migrant children housed at the Fort Bliss tent camp "felt like they were in prison and often begged 'please get me out of here, I don't know if I can take it anymore,'" according to a new whistleblower complaint.

A divided California.

The traditional political map of California below shows the party breakdown varies by county. Those in the Bay Area tend to have large shares of Democrats, while northern, eastern and some central counties lean more Republican.

Will California start requiring masks indoors again? Gavin Newsom sidesteps the question

Governor Newsom should answer the question, rather than side step it!

From the The Sacramento Bee: As COVID-19 cases in California rise, Gov. Gavin Newsom avoided answering a question Monday about whether he might impose a new statewide mask mandate, instead stressing the importance of vaccinations.

The rate of Californians testing positive for COVID-19 in the last week, known as the positivity rate, has ticked up steadily for days and is now at 4.1%, the highest it’s been since February. #CADeservesBetter Gavin Newsom

Democrats Ignore Science and Data When Dealing with Gun Laws

Science and data doesn't matter when dealing with fi****ms.

This past month, on a party-line vote, California Senate Democrats passed Senate Bill 264, which bans fairgrounds and other state properties from hosting gun shows. The bill author reasoned it was "probable" some crimes in California were committed using fi****ms purchased at said gun shows.

Several Republican senators rightly took issue with the “probable” claims and asked for data and proof.

State Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) asked the bill author, "Is there any data or information that you have that shows that any criminal activity has taken place with fi****ms purchased from a gun show on a state facility?"

Another California county urges vaccinated people to mask up indoors

Get ready to mask up. Another county is recommending vaccinated people to mask up.

The highly transmissible delta variant has prompted Yolo County to urge residents to wear masks indoors again.

“I am erring on the side of caution to slow the spread of the highly infectious delta variant,” said Dr. Aimee Sisson, the health officer for the county, in a press release on Wednesday.

Sisson “strongly recommended” that fully vaccinated people, along with those who are 65 and older or immunocompromised, wear masks in indoor public areas as a “precautionary measure,” according to the press release.

Your flu shot may protect against severe COVID, study finds — but it’s not clear why

The The Sacramento Bee reports that getting a flu shot may come with an added benefit: protection against severe coronavirus infection.

That’s the conclusion researchers made from a review of nearly 75 million COVID-19 patient records from around the globe, which found those who received a flu vaccine up to six months before getting infected were less likely to have a stroke, experience sepsis or develop blood clots caused by the disease.

But when it comes to risk of death from COVID-19, flu shots don’t help much.

California Takes a Nibble at Offering Food Stamps to Undocumented Immigrants

Democrats in the state legislature this year proposed opening California’s state-funded food stamp program — which serves about 35,000 authorized immigrants who don’t qualify for federal food stamps — to all income-eligible Californians, regardless of immigration status. The cost of the proposed expansion, starting in 2023, was put at about $550 million a year.

But after negotiations with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration, the proposal was pared down to a two-year, $30 million project to update the state food aid program so it can accept applications from some of the more than 2 million undocumented people in California, should the program be extended to them in the future.

Food insecurity soared during the pandemic, including among unauthorized immigrants, who are not eligible for federally funded food stamps. California’s Democratic lawmakers want to expand the bene…

Mexican adults are crossing the border again and again in attempts to reach the United States

Through May of fiscal 2021, about 40 percent of apprehensions along the U.S.-Mexico border were of Mexican adults. Along the California border, their share of apprehensions was even higher, at 80 percent.

Nearly everyone interviewed by the San Diego Union-Tribune shortly after being expelled to Tijuana said that they had tried crossing the border three or more times in recent weeks in hopes of getting in.

One man, who declined to be identified, said he’d lost count of how many times he tried. He tossed out a guess — 30. #immigration #BorderCrisis

California Law Protects Shake Down Attorneys - Faultline

Minority owed businesses are often the target of Johnson who is a quadriplegic and rides a motorized wheelchair to places such as restaurants, gas stations, and dentist offices. He then sends a letter claiming that they have an ADA violation.

The letter that Johnson sends comes with an offer to settle and avoid costly court charges. Those settlements can range between $4000 – $20,000. And, if you don’t have the money to pay the settlement, a payment plan is offered. Some business owners aren’t so lucky. Some businesses are forced to fold up shop.

The lawyer preys on their fear, and those businesses are the most likely to go under. #CADeservesBetter

COMMONSENSE says…. You can’t have it both ways and expect the public to take you or the issue seriously.

Otherwise, it’s just another political charade.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta just announced that California is banning taxpayer-funded travel to several more states. Bonta called for a state-funded travel ban to Arkansas, Florida, Montana, and West Virginia in response to legislation in those states that restrict transgender youth from p...

Beyond Absurd! Senator Brian Dahle is right! "Mother Nature causes droughts. A lack of leadership causes water shortages." 23 months ago our reservoirs were full, now we have water districts trying to limit water usage. Where did all that water go?

California's reservoirs are intended to carry out state through 5 years of drought.

Gavin Newsom and his State of California Water Resources Control Board need to provide answers.

Mother Nature causes droughts. A lack of leadership causes water shortages. The State Water Board needs to answer as to why they are emptying our reservoirs. #drought2021 #CAdrought

California unemployment rate dips as employers add new jobs

According to the Associated Press, "California has regained more than half of the 2.7 million jobs it lost at the start of the coronavirus pandemic."

There are several restaurants and hotels hiring more people, which has helped reduce the number of unemployed people.

California has now regained 1.4 million jobs that were lost since the beginning of the pandemic.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California has regained more than half of the 2.7 million jobs it lost at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, officials said Friday, a trend driven by restaurants and hotels hiring more people as the nation’s most populous state reopens its economy.

Getting a REAL ID in California will be easier due to a federal rule change. Here’s how

According to the Sacramento Bee, "A federal rule change means California residents applying for a REAL ID no longer have to provide a Social Security card or W-2, making the process easier for applicants."

In April, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security extended the deadline to get a REAL ID, which now gives drivers and travelers until May 3, 2023, to obtain the new identification card.

'Microfarms' come to South L.A. frontyards, bringing fresh produce to food deserts

A very interesting concept: Microfarms

Here is an excerpt from the article: "According to the USDA, large swaths of South L.A. suffer from low access to fresh food. It’s a problem even in some socioeconomically better off neighborhoods."

These microfarms might become more popular, which definitely seems like a good thing in food deserts.
