Traffic Stop Leads To Three Drug Arrests In Escalon

ESCALON (CBS13) — Three men are behind bars after a traffic stop led to drug arrests in Escalon. The Escalon Police Department said 32-year-old Leslie Parsons was pulled over last week for displaying 2020 tabs when the vehicle’s registration was expired in 2019. The officer found Parsons did not have a valid driver’s license and arrested him for being an unlicensed driver. During a search of Parson’s vehicle, the police department said the officer found a meth pipe along with two baggies that contained suspected methamphetamine. Parsons was subsequently arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia, being an unlicensed driver and displaying false tabs.

4 Sue To Block California Tax Return Law Aimed At Trump

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Four California voters have sued to block a new state law aimed at forcing Republican President Donald Trump to release his income tax returns. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law last week that requires presidential candidates to file five years of their income tax returns with the California secretary of state. Candidates who don’t comply will not appear on the March 3 presidential primary ballot. The conservative group Judicial Watch announced Monday it had filed a lawsuit last week to challenge the law. The four plaintiffs are two Republicans, one Democrat and one independent. “This is a nonpartisan concern about the state running roughshod and attempting to amend the Constitution on its own,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. The Constitution requires three things of presidents: They have to be born in the U.S.; must be at least 35 and must have lived in the country for at least 14 years. Attorneys for Judicial Watch argue California’s law effectively alters the Constitution by adding a new requirement for tax returns, something they say state governments don’t have the authority to do. California’s…

Will Republicans finally disown Trump’s incendiary racism?

Amidst the latest bloodshed – the worst of it triggered by a white racist domestic terrorist whose El Paso manifesto echoes Trump’s racist rhetoric – I bet you’re jonesing for some good news. I’m happy to share what I have. Admittedly it isn’t much, but at this point we should probably be grateful whenever a few Republicans wake up and smell their party’s white supremacist stench. “The Republican Party is enabling white supremacy in our country. As a lifelong Republican, it pains me to say this, but it’s the truth,” wrote Nebraska State Senator John McCollister. “We have a Republican president who continually stokes racist fears in his base. He calls certain countries ‘sh*tholes,’ tells women of color to ‘go back’ to where they came from and lies more than he tells the truth.” Senator Ted Cruz – yes, Cruz – said on Sunday morning, “What we saw yesterday was a heinous act of terrorism and white supremacy. There is no place for this in El Paso, in Texas, or anywhere across our nation.” And early Monday morning, the conservative, pro-GOP Washington Examiner posted an…

Fraud, scams and Google in elections

There have been a number of theories for why Donald Trump lost the popular vote. This column found that Hillary Clinton ran a nearly 5 million vote margin over Trump in the Los Angeles and Bay area counties. Outside the Democrat-heavy states of Illinois and New York, those counties in California alone delivered nearly 2 million more votes than Clinton needed for her 2.9 million vote win. The number of fraudulent votes will never be known, primarily because the Democrat powers-that-be have no interest in either acknowledging the existence of vote fraud, or determining what proportion of votes “harvested,” under the laws like “Motor Voter” or AB 1921, “Vote by Mail (VbM) ballots,” were phony. Clinton’s entire 2.9 million popular vote win didn’t come from vote fraud in California but the same corrupt machine that delivered Chicago’s fraudulent/dead votes for John F. Kennedy—hence the state of Illinois and his election over Richard Nixon—hasn’t gone away. Briefly, the laws cited above allow for paid vote “collectors,” unrelated to the actual voter, to use publicly available voting data to approach Democrat voters that haven’t cast their mail-in…
