amala Harris clears her path to U.S. Senate

Agriculture - California, Elections, State gov

CASTAIC – When Kamala Harris, a Democrat, was the newly elected district attorney of San Francisco in 2004, she walked into a firestorm after deciding not to pursue the death penalty for a man accused in the killing of a police officer – drawing attacks from law enforcement leaders and even Sen. Dianne Feinstein, one of the most respected Democrats in the state.

Six years later, when Harris ran for state attorney general, national Republicans poured more than $1 million into the race, trying to defeat her with charged advertisements invoking the death penalty case. Harris barely defeated her Republican opponent, the district attorney of Los Angeles.

But now, at age 50 and after winning a second term, Harris has suddenly established herself as the dominant candidate in the race to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat who announced in January that she would retire next year. With a speed and efficiency that startled many in her party, Harris has appeared, at least for now, to dispatch what most people had expected would be a sprawling generational battle with powerful ethnic overtones, given that Latinos now make up nearly 40 percent of California’s population.

She herself would be a pioneering figure, if elected – simultaneously the first black and the first South Asian senator from California.

Within days of Boxer’s announcement, Harris declared she was in, and followed that up with a day-by-day machine-gun patter of high-profile endorsements. Among them were Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; leading members of California’s congressional delegation and state Legislature; and Emily’s List, a political fundraising organization that backs female Democrats who support abortion rights.

That had the intended effect of helping to clear the field of some of her biggest potential challengers, including Antonio R. Villaraigosa, the former Los Angeles mayor, and Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental activist. Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor, decided to run for governor instead, in 2018.

In getting to this point, Harris – her first name is pronounced KOM-ala – displayed what many associates described as a relentless political style that has marked her career, starting with her first election as the San Francisco district attorney. With an eye to what happened in 2004, she went out of her way to line up and highlight the support of some of this state’s top law enforcement associations as part of her endorsement rollout after she announced her Senate candidacy.

“I always start my campaigns early, and I run hard,” Harris said in an hourlong interview. “Maybe it comes from the rough-and-tumble world of San Francisco politics, where it’s not even a contact sport – it’s a blood sport. This is how I am as a candidate. This is how I run campaigns.”

“And she always wins,” Sean Clegg, an aide seated at her side, added in a stage whisper.

“Oh God, don’t say that,” Harris said, knocking the wooden table before her with three sharp, superstitious raps. “Don’t, don’t, don’t! So far, so good.”

For all that, there is no assurance of easy sailing in an election still a year and a half away. Running a district attorney’s office, or being a state attorney general, means having responsibility for many law enforcement decisions and cases that could become political fodder.

This week, for example, Harris had to weigh in on a proposed ballot measure that would mandate the killing of sexually active gay people by “bullets to the head” – or by “any other convenient method.” Such voter initiatives go to the attorney general for processing, and the law appears to give Harris little discretion but to do so. But she took the highly unusual step of asking a court to step in and block the measure.

Harris will probably face a Democratic challenger before the June 2016 open primary, albeit not necessarily one with the political resources of the figures who stepped aside. Three members of Congress – Adam B. Schiff, Loretta Sanchez and Xavier Becerra – are said to be considering races. Sanchez and Becerra could appeal to a constituency hoping that this might be a time for California to elect its first Latino senator.

“Politics abhors a vacuum,” said Bill Carrick, a Democratic consultant who advises Feinstein. “Somebody is going to fall into this.”

On the Republican side, Rocky Chavez, a former Marine colonel and two-term member of the state Assembly, who is also Latino, said he would run. “A lot of things can happen on the way to a coronation,” he said in an interview.

Harris’ mother was from India and her father of Jamaican descent. In one politically awkward moment at a fundraiser in 2013, President Barack Obama called her “by far the best-looking attorney general in the country.”

VA hospital chief draws $179G salary despite missing 80 days over 1 year

Federal gov & land grabs, Veterans & soldiers

By Luke Rosiak

Fox News

DeWayne Hamlin, the top official of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Puerto Rico hospital, was absent from the hospital some 80 days in a one-year period, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Hamlin was paid $179,700 despite being absent from the hospital approximately one in three business days last year, according to “delegation of authority” documents by which he temporarily transferred his job responsibilities to deputies.

In April 2014, for example, he was absent from the 10th to the 18th, then from the 24th to the 27th. He also submitted a delegation document saying he would be gone the 28th and 29th. For part of that time, he was traveling to Florida, where he previously lived. He was arrested by Florida police while sitting in his car at 2:00 a.m. on the 26th.

Police said that he smelled of alcohol, twice refused to take a breath test, and that they found oxycodone for which he did not have a prescription. He reportedly refused to say where he got the painkiller.

State seeks water rules for pot growers

Agriculture - California, State gov, Water rights, Water, Resources & Quality

 Press Democrat

January 29, 2015, 9:49PM

The program is aimed primarily at regulating the activities of those legally growing marijuana for medical use, though water quality regulators plan to focus on what’s happening environmentally and not whether a grower has Proposition 215 medical marijuana documentation.

The goal is instead to encourage the growing community toward proactive steps that protect the environment, said Cris Carrigan, director of the Office of Enforcement for the state Water Resources Control Board.

Education and outreach are key pillars of the program, and Carrigan and others already have met with scores of stakeholders, including trade groups and growers. The enforcement piece is also weighted heavily toward what he called “assisted compliance” to help growers meet established standards, he said. Carrigan said that many officials believe it is likely state voters will legalize recreational use in 2016, and that part of the focus on regulation now is aimed at being ready for that.

Program architects are asking that growers contact regulating agencies in advance of starting a garden, getting permits for activities such as grading, chemical use and storage, water diversions and any operations in or around waterways.

It’s a tall order, but should make sense to medical marijuana collectives and private growers who want to create sustainable business models that acknowledge the potential for wear and tear on the land, Carrigan said.

Stand with Nevada’s Resource Rights Bill AB 408

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, CORRUPTION, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

From Bundy Ranch, Bunkerville, Nevada

Friends,

While speaking with people from Las Vegas about the Nevadan’s Resource Rights Bill AB408 it was explained to me that the BLM is imposing fines and forced recourse upon private property owners for building pools in their own backyards.

The BLM claims that the soil that is being removed from private property belongs to them, and that the home owners must get permission from and pay them to remove it. Just to be clear this is the dirt on private property. The feds say they own the minerals, including dirt as a mineral. If we are not purchasing the soil when we buy private property then what are were paying for with our hard earned money? If not the land, then what?
This is just one example of how the Federal Government is seeking to take the resources from the people for themselves. Land and resources = power. This power is too important for the people to lose. What will stop them from claiming that we cannot harvest a garden out of our own backyards, without paying them.
We must stand against this!

PLEASE SUPPORT BILL AB408- THIS BILL ENFORCES THAT THE RESOURCES BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE

The resources committee hearing details are below,
we need everyone we can get to come to one of the locations during the hearing. It does not matter if you live in Nevada or not. This will set a precedence and other states will follow. Please take time off and make this a priority.
Our Rally will begin at 12 Noon, in the Court Yard between the Capitol, Court and Assembly Buildings.

Doug LaMalfa Congressman CA, FIRES, Forestry & USFS

Wow what a retro-BRAIN seizure !!!

Yesterday, I was in a hurry to post the special Forum that CA. Dist. 1 Congressman Doug LaMalfa is holding in Siskiyou County on April 8.  For some unknown reason, I titled the article using the previous Congressman’s (Herger) name.  Truly, I don’t know why my blond brain did that one, as I very much know the difference between the two men.

It is the current Congressman Doug LaMalfa, who is sponsoring the Forum on the 2014 Fires in Siskiyou County on April 8, 2015.

Meeting is at the Happy Camp Grange in Happy Camp 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Next meeting is at the Jr. High gym in Fort Jones.  Time is 5:30 p.m.

I am so very sorry about that !!!  Please forgive me Congressman LaMalfa and staff !
