Knowingly exposing others to HIV will no longer be a felony in California

Degeneracy defined… Sodom is now alive and well in California

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly and purposefully exposing a sexual partner to the deadly HIV without disclosing the infection.

The measure even applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.

Brown declined to comment on his action.

Republican lawmakers including Sen. Joel Anderson of Alpine voted against the bill, arguing it puts the public at risk.

“I’m of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regimen of medications to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony,” Anderson said during the floor debate. “It’s absolutely crazy to me that we should go light on this.”

This Isn’t A Joke! And Not From The Onion! The IRS Just Used Your Taxpayer Money To Hire Equifax To Safeguard Your Taxpayer Data

Just hours after Equifax CEO Rick Smith wrapped up his testimony before the House Energy and Commerce committee – the first in a series of Congressional “fact-finding missions” about the hack – Politico reported that the IRS last week awarded the disgraced credit monitoring bureau with a $7.25 no-bid contract even as the company struggled to address suspicions that it mislead investors and customers by withholding information about one of the most damaging data breaches in US history.

Equifax famously waited more than a month to disclose that hackers had infiltrated its servers and absconded with the sensitive financial information of more than 140 million customers, sparking widespread outrage that only intensified after reporters discovered that several of the company’s senior executives – including its CFO – cashed out of shares and options in the weeks before the company came clean about the hack.

According to the terms of the IRS contract, Equifax would be responsible for verifying taxpayer identities and help prevent fraud under a no-bid contract issued last week.

As if the IRS’s decision to entrust the disgraced credit bureau with sensitive taxpayer data wasn’t galling enough, the agency seemingly fast-tracked the contract by classifying it as a “sole source order” – a designation that allows the agency to circumvent the bidding process by claiming a given vendor is the only one capable of executing the contract. However, the agency’s justification for this designation is baffling, considering that there are two other credit bureaus in the US that offer a nearly identical suite of services.

The notice describes the contract as a “sole source order,” meaning Equifax is the only company deemed capable of providing the service. It says the order was issued to prevent a lapse in identity checks while officials resolve a dispute over a separate contract.

Lawmakers from both parties demanded an explanation from the agency, which has endured several memorable data-security lapses – including a 2015 breach that exposed the sensitive financial information of more than 100,000 taxpayers.

“In the wake of one of the most massive data breaches in a decade, it’s irresponsible for the IRS to turn over millions in taxpayer dollars to a company that has yet to offer a succinct answer on how at least 145 million Americans had personally identifiable information exposed,” Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) told POLITICO in a statement.

Hatch raised concerns about the IRS’s cybersecurity practices in a letter sent to the agency’s head last month. To help the agency improve its data-security safeguards, Congress recently allocated $106.4 million to bolster the agency’s identity theft protections.

Hatch questioned the agency’s security systems in a letter to Koskinen last month. Hatch said he was concerned that the IRS lacked the technology necessary “to safeguard the integrity of our tax administration system.”
Ron Wyden said the Finance Committee would seek to verify whether Equifax was really the only company capable of executing the contract, as the agency insisted.

The committee’s ranking member, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), piled on: “The Finance Committee will be looking into why Equifax was the only company to apply for and be rewarded with this. I will continue to take every measure possible to prevent taxpayer data from being compromised as this arrangement moves forward.”

In defending its decision, the IRS claimed that Equifax said that none of its data was involved in the data breach.

The IRS defended its decision, saying Equifax has told the agency that none of its data was affected by the breach. The agency also noted that Equifax already provides “similar services” to the agency under a different contract.

“Following an internal review and an on-site visit with Equifax, the IRS believes the service Equifax provided does not pose a risk to IRS data or systems,” the statement reads. “At this time, we have seen no indications of tax fraud related to the Equifax breach, but we will continue to closely monitor the situation.”

Given that Equifax waited more than a month to disclose the hack to the public – and has bungled seemingly every step in its response to the hack – the fact that the IRS justified its decision by, in effect, saying “they told me everything is fine” is hardly reassuring. As Yahoo demonstrated just last night, the true scope of cyber-security intrusions sometimes takes years to uncover, which is precisely why sticking with Equifax is a risky. Yahoo, of course, revealed yesterday that a 2013 data breach impact all 3 billion of the company’s user accounts – three times the one billion accounts previously reported by the company.

As lawmakers have suggested, when determining which companies should be trusted to safeguard tax payers’ most sensitive financial data, the agency should’ve erred on the side of caution.

NFL’s Oakland Raiders may have purposefully allowed their white quarterback to get sacked multiple times because he stood for National Anthem

“He wants to stand alone, he can stand alone on the field,” one of the teams offensive lineman said, according to the shows source.

A new report from The Armstrong and Getty Radio Show has sent shockwaves throughout the sports world after it was claimed that members of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders may have purposefully allowed their star quarterback to get sacked multiple times after he refused to kneel during the National Anthem.

If true, this would essentially mean that an NFL football game was illegally thrown over racism: anger that one of the teams star white players did not believe that kneeling during the nation’s anthem was the correct way to protest supposed racial injustice in America.

In other words, an epic level scandal.

During the anthem, virtually the entire team was seen kneeling other than the teams coaches and star quarterback Derek Carr. Unfortunately, this may have not set well with the team’s offensive line as they were apparently the players who spearheaded the entire idea to kneel as a team in the first.

“This is one hell of a scandal with the NFL, could ruin the whole league,” claimed the show before detailing the fact that Carr was sacked two times in a row on the teams second drive and that the team’s usually dependable center snapped the ball at the wrong time in three different instances. Extremely capable receivers also made multiple “weird” drops of passes thrown by Carr that T.V. announcers even noted at the time.

The radio show then revealed bombshell “insider information” from an “extremely reliable” source who claimed that members of the Oakland Raiders did indeed throw the game as a sort of punishment for Carr choosing to not use the countries anthem to make a political statement.

“He wants to stand alone, he can stand alone on the field,” one of the teams offensive lineman said, according to the shows source. Keep in mind, the offensive line are literally the guys whose job it is to protect the quarterback, in this case the star player who didn’t kneel.

Amazingly, the circumstantial (and possible direct) proof didn’t end there as the show then claimed that this same source also revealed that a local team reporter got wind of the story and asked a team official for comment. What he was apparently told in response has all the hallmarks of a team trying to cover up a major scandal.

“If you report on this, you will be blackballed, you will not get access to the Raiders period,” the reporter was supposedly told. “Your career covering the team will be over”.

While there are obviously major legal and ethical issues if this is true, it also paints a sad picture of a football league divided by a political and media establishment all too happy to cause as much racial divide in the country as possible. For as long as Americans focus on differences between each other, the global elites power remains completely unthreatened.

FULL REPORT:

Authors Note: Its also important to consider that there is almost no chance that any member of the Raiders organization, whether coaches, the front office, or players (especially Carr himself) will publicly admit that this happened if it is indeed true. The sheer amount of mayhem it would cause is enough to keep almost anyone quiet. Anonymous player quotes and sources may be all we will ever have to go on.

Meanwhile, The NFL’s net favorability has dropped from an already low number of 30% on September 21 to a record low of 17% on September 28.

Watch Chuck Todd totally embarrass and humiliate himself on MSNBC

Chuck Todd totally embarrassed and humiliated himself in this attempt to accuse GOP candidate Roy Moore of being against the Constitution.

Instead, he showed that he knows absolutely nothing about our founding principles.

Most people learn about this founding document in elementary school:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

That’s the Declaration of Independence Chuckie. Maybe you should read it sometime.

Chuck Todd – Certified Idiot

After Independence, the Declaration remained as a statement of America’s natural law ideals and it was the basis for the Constitution.

I know I’m gonna be hit with a chorus of “you’re surprised by that?!?” but, yes, I actually am surprised that Chuck Todd could be so stupid as to not know that Americans have believed that our rights come from God and NOT the government for a long, long, long, long time.

The government is not there to GRANT us rights, it’s there to recognize them and protect them. I would have thought that he’d at least KNOW this Constitutional principle even if he didn’t believe in it, but yet again we’re shown just how foolish our media gatekeepers really are…

Please make fun of him on Twitter, I can’t because he blocked me long ago…

Steelers’ Owner in Panic Mode

by Kevin Jackson

We reported recently that the NFL viewership is so far below normal, it’s costing the networks dearly.

Next, players who protested are losing endorsements. And this isn’t being caused necessarily by boycotts from America-loving sports fans. Instead, the brands preemptively cancel deals.

How these morons believed they are on the winning side of disrespecting the country shows you how far Leftism has gone.

It’s safe to say the NFL finds itself in panic mode. Polls prove that the majority of the public support the flag and the national anthem. All this translates to support of Trump.

Put more direct, Black Lives Matter and the politically-correct policies of the NFL have been rebuked.

I’ve seen multiple videos of people burning NFL gear. For each video you see, know that there are at least 1000 people who feel the same. DirecTV saw many cancellations of the NFL Package, and you can bet this is only the beginning.

Some teams will be hit harder than others. One such team is the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Their head coach made a bone head decision to force the entire team to sit out the National Anthem.

But hey stood a chance for redemption when Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger stood alone for the anthem. His jersey sales soared, and perhaps the Steelers might have recovered. However, under pressure from his coach he retracted his bravery the following day.

http://theblacksphere.net/2017/09/villanueva-pressure-apologize-racist-mike-tomlin/

Tomlin acted as if it was each player’s person decision, but that is a lie.

Pittsburgh coach, Mike Tomlin is an ethnocentric black racist who supports BLM, even though the group are terrorists. Truth be told, Tomlin likes that BLM kills cops, and he feels a kinship to those who commit such heinous acts. In fact, if it weren’t for the grace of God many on his team might very well be dead.

Now, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers attempts to soothe the savage beasts, people outrage by the antics of the Steelers’ Leftist racist coach, Mike Tomlin:

To Steelers Nation:

I want to reach out to you, the members of Steelers Nation, based on what I believe is a misperception about our players’ intentions in not taking the field for the National Anthem in Chicago. The intentions of Steelers players were to stay out of the business of making political statements by not taking the field. Unfortunately, that was interpreted as a boycott of the anthem – which was never our players’ intention.

Our players come from many different backgrounds and are united by what it means to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are active in their communities and participate regularly in events designed to give back to those communities. And they appreciate the support they get from Steelers fans around the country and here at home.

I also know that our players have tremendous respect for the members of our military services, including their teammate Alejandro Villanueva. There was never any desire on the part of our players to show disrespect for our service members.

Yesterday, I received an email from a Steelers fan who said tell the players to just play football. That is exactly what they wanted to do. They wanted their sole focus to be on playing the game, while also coming together as a unified team.

The main thing we can do is learn from this and strive to come together remaining unified as a football team. I believe we are capable of accomplishing this with the support of our fans.
Steelers Nation is made up of the best fans in the National Football League. We appreciate your continued support of our players, coaches and staff.

Nice try! I suspect that Steelers fans aren’t buying this. Unfortunately for the owner of the Steelers, this nonsense has been going on too long.

The letter has been labeled a “clarification”, however there is little to clarify. The team named for an industry that helped build America and whose fan base is blue-collar America capitulated to the Left. No matter what flowery “clarification” Art Rooney II gives, it won’t quell the masses.

The NFL and other Leftists want America to push this aside. Kneeling for the national anthem we are told is no big deal. In fact, it’s the BIGGEST of deals. And the black athletes of the NFL proved what I have said for some time. The attitude of progressives is the reason blacks are not hired. These athletes proved that no matter how much fame and fortune they achieve, they will bitch. And they don’t care if they bite the hand that feeds them.

For those who believe the hand that feeds them is rich white men, you are wrong. The hand that feeds them, as they are about to find out, is the American citizens that purchase NFL tickets and merchandise that these black men have been taught to detest.

NFL Hypocrites

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Sunday morning that his instructed his entire team to stay in the locker room during the national anthem to “avoid politics”.  This in itself is a major political statement because it goes against the standard NFL operation manual on top of taking away free speech from each of his players. So Tomlin is avoiding politics by playing politics?

In an effort to avoid the First Amendment Right issue, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin took away the First Amendment right of every player by instructing his entire team to stay in the locker room.  Yeah that should fix it.

Monday on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed,” co-host Shannon Sharpe criticized Pittsburgh Steelers tackle and former Army Ranger and Afghan war veteran Alejandro Villanueva’s decision to go “rogue” by going onto the field Sunday to stand for the national anthem before the team’s game with the Chicago Bears, despite the coach telling the team to remain in the locker room.

Alejandro Villanueva “going rogue” by standing for the national anthem

Shannon Sharpe criticized Villanueva for exercising his free speech by standing, but praised Kaepernick for exercising his free speech by kneeling

“I believe he was wrong in this situation,” stated Sharpe. “I believe he put his personal feelings and beliefs in front of that of the team.”

So Sharp says Kaepernick and others are exercising free speech when they kneel for the anthem, but it’s wrong for a player to exercise his free speech and stand for the anthem?

I am glad to see stories like this popping up all over America…

NFL Burn Notice

Many angry NFL fans have chosen a different way to express their dissatisfaction with the league and its players. As Yahoo reports, Steelers’ offensive-lineman Alejandro Villanueva’s jersey becomes an overnight best-seller after he stands for anthem.

The 29-year-old is a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger who served three tours of duty in Afghanistan before returning to football (he played at Army) in 2014. He has played in 35 games over the past two-plus seasons with Pittsburgh, starting all three games so far this year.

On Saturday and Sunday, as NFL players discussed how to handle the freedom of speech issue in regards to National Anthem protests, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told his players that they MUST be unified – either they would be in agreement of what to do on the field, or no one from the team would be on the field.

Since they couldn’t come to a consensus, Pittsburgh players and coaches were supposed to stay in the locker room, though it was later amended to the team’s tunnel near the Soldier Field turf because of timing.

Now tell me how that is freedom of speech. Forcing someone to avoid standing for the National Anthem? That is just poor leadership.

But as the rest of his teammates stood in the shadows, however, Villanueva walked out about 20 feet in front of them, his hand over his heart, during the playing of the anthem.

His teammates were reportedly shocked that Villanueva stood by himself, as the edict was that the entire team was to show “unity” over respect. Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin indicated Sunday night that he did not want offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva to stand for the national anthem, instead of sitting it out with the rest of his teammates…

Tomlin said in a post-game press conference that he was looking for “100 percent participation” in whatever course of action the team took during the national anthem. When asked by a reporter about Villanueva coming out for the anthem, Tomlin said, “Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team [but not our country]”.

So will there be a punishment for Villanueva?

Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday . Some of the loudest such ‘boos’ came for the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium when a number of Patriots kneeled for the anthem. Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo stood next to the group of kneeling Patriots and locked arms. Tom Brady responded to the boos saying that he just “disagrees” with the President and thinks his tweets are “just divisive.” Presumably, that means that Brady is of the opinion that exploiting his star power to make a political statement is not equally divisive?

With all of the drama queen grandstanding and emotional reactions from the NFL over the weekend, the sport’s smartest executives seemingly proved that they have no idea they’re fighting a battle that simply can’t be won.

The NFL doesn’t seem to understand that while almost every American can agree that football is a great sport, roughly 50% of them will vehemently disagree with whatever political stance any given player or league exec decides to publicly announce. And, since the NFL’s future depends on selling overpriced ad spots to massive corporations looking for a consistent number of eyeballs, alienating any group of viewers, for whatever reason, is just bad for business.

Just ask the Dixie Chicks.

And in a Trump VS NFL fight, Trump wins because most people realize that if you’re going to allow the football field to be a place of POLITICAL protests, which it has been for over a year now, then expect a POLITICIAN to have an opinion about that.

Here’s just a couple of examples for what the fans had to say over the weekend.

“It’s a disgrace. It’s disgusting. They’re getting paid to do a job…to play ball and do whatever the fans want them to do.”

“They’re paying these guys to do a job. They’re not supposed to be involved in politics.”

Meanwhile, Ravens fans are burning their jerseys to the tune of the national anthem.

“You can take your Kansas City Chiefs and you can take your NFL and you can shove it.”

“Now, think about that and think about the millions a year that you people are making to play a game while we got soldiers overseas that get paid minimum wage to put their lives on the line for that flag.”

“Protest does not belong in our NFL sports. It’s a game.”

But these videos were hardly unique as fans all around the country torched their NFL gear…

— Starving1 (@ArvinGibbs) September 24, 2017

Brendan Finn, a New York Giants season ticket holder since the ’80s, even decided to burn his tickets…

Finally, the owner of the Palmetto Alehouse in South Carolina took things to a whole new level after declaring that his restaurant would not air another NFL game until “all players pay respect to our flag and our country!!!”

 

 

The irony is the Liberals claiming Trump is being divisive on this issue.

The fact is, the flag has 50 stars as it is the unifying symbol of the Nation. The Nation is the ONE thing that unifies Americans.

So when the players take a knee and dishonor the flag (for whatever silly reason), they are the ones being divisive.

The President condemning that divisiveness is actually NOT divisive.

But it’s just like Liberals to turn everything on its head, make black to white. Because the Liberals want to destroy our Nation, not just with assaulting our symbol of unity, but with open borders, “free trade”, and anything else that opens the door to global government.

So, to all the NFL execs who can’t help but politicize their league, good luck with all those “make-good” advertisements that will come out of your own pockets when your viewership hits an inevitable dip over the coming weeks.
