The West Coast, Under Progressive Stewardship Is A Literal Toilet: 80% of coastal areas infected with toxic feces (biosludge), warns Dr. Drew

(Natural News) California is experiencing a homelessness crisis of unprecedented proportions, and it is now endangering the health and safety of every single person living in the state, particularly those who live in coastal areas.

Laura Ingraham recently hosted television personality and medical internist Dr. David Drew Pinsky, commonly known as Dr. Drew, on her show The Ingraham Angle on Fox News.

Together they shone a light on the effects of the homelessness crisis, one of which is the fact that 80 percent of California’s coastline is now infested with human feces. (Related: California’s wealthy elite finally facing their day of reckoning as liberal policies leave surge of homeless people, used needles and human feces on their doorstep.)

Don’t go in the water

Dr. Drew doesn’t allow his kids to swim in the Californian ocean. As an ex-lifeguard and medical professional, he knows that the water poses too much of a health risk. He believes that one reason for this is that current technology does not match the state’s water purification needs.

He also believes that there is another massive contributing factor to the coastline’s contamination, however. (Related: Finally, some media truth about California – U.S. News ranks the state at the bottom for ‘quality of life.’)

As Dr. Drew told Ingraham, small amounts of runoff in various places along the coast is normal, but there is now a consistent, recurring water contamination problem. He believes that the 60- to 80,000 homeless people defecating, urinating and bleeding directly into gutters on a daily basis is the major source of contamination. All that sewage and human waste makes its way into the L.A. River and Santa Ana River Basin, ultimately ending up in the oceans.

Dr. Drew noted:

“There is an organization out here called Heal the Bay which keeps tabs on safety of our beaches in Southern California, from Orange County to Ventura. Since the rains last Winter, [Heal the Bay] has been giving our beaches C’s to F’s, and F means completely overrun with fecal bacteria. What comes with that are other things like syringes, Hepatitis A and other infectious diseases.”

The publication LAist recently reported on this contamination, noting that there are at least five beaches in Southern California where swimming or surfing means you could end up paddling around in feces:

The bad news is that when it rains, the runoff that makes its way down to the water is chock-full of pathogens that can lead to things like upper respiratory illness, ear and eye infections and gastrointestinal issues. …

Five of the top 10 dirtiest beaches in the state are located in Southern California, according to the report.

So you probably want to avoid:

  • San Clemente pier
  • Long Beach at Coronado Avenue
  • Monarch Beach at Salt Creek
  • Mother’s Beach in Marina Del Rey
  • Cabrillo Beach (harbor side)

All have elevated levels of bacteria for various reasons, even during the dry season.

Heal the Bay believes that runoff from the state’s recent devastating fires is responsible for the contamination. They allege that it is the result of the fires causing around two dozen homes to get disconnected from the sewage treatment plant.

Dr. Drew does not accept that explanation.

As he says, the number of people living on the streets without access to bathroom facilities equates to the population of a city the size of Pasadena. Environmentalists would be going ballistic if a city of those proportions suddenly got disconnected from sewage treatment facilities, but there has been nothing but deafening silence from them about the homelessness crisis and its devastating impact.

Dr. Drew insists the situation is dire.

This problem is “proliferating to the point that even traffic is getting blocked by debris and feces and garbage,” he warns. “Rats have taken over the city. It’s not consistent with civilization. How many must die before we change direction?”

FBI Investigates Deputy Gangs Inside Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department

The FBI is investigating a secret society of tattooed deputies in East Los Angeles as well as similar gang-like groups elsewhere within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, multiple people familiar with the inquiry said.

The federal probe follows allegations of beatings and harassment by members of the Banditos, a group of deputies assigned to the Sheriff’s Department’s East L.A. station who brand themselves with matching tattoos of a skeleton outfitted with a sombrero, bandolier and pistol. The clique’s members are accused by other deputies of using gang-like tactics to recruit young Latino deputies into their fold and retaliating against those who rebuff them.

In interviews with several deputies, FBI agents have asked about the inner workings of the Banditos and the group’s hierarchy, according to three people with close knowledge of the matter who spoke to The Times on the condition that their names not be used because the investigation is ongoing.

California Unveils Big Brother Education System to Track Kids From ‘Cradle to Career’

The California legislature has approved legislation that will be signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom to set up an educational system that will use big data to track children from “cradle to career.”

Senate Bill 75 was approved by a vote of 31-7 in the Senate and 62-14 in the Assembly. It will create a “longitudinal” data system that profiles and manipulates pupils from the earliest of ages so they are guided into a career determined by central planners.

“This is long overdue. Finally, California, the center of the tech world, has a government that is catching up to the 21st century,” said Arun Ramanathan, CEO of Pivot Learning Partners, a nonprofit that will be benefiting from this legislation.

“I’m encouraged we are moving forward and proceeding through the work group in a thoughtful and deliberate way,” said Hans Johnson, a senior fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California and director of its Higher Education Center.

The state bureaucracy is now tasked with determining exactly what data is collected from children to enable Big Brother.

This is apart of a national movement that is being spearheaded by failed Georgia Governor candidate Stacey Abrams, New York Times writer David Brooks, and Barack Obama’s former deputy secretary of Education Jim Shelton.

These centralizers hope to control and shape young minds from the earliest of ages using powerful technological tools.

“We refuse to settle for a world where a child’s potential is dictated by the conditions in which the child is born. We are committed to helping every child succeed in school and in life from cradle to career, regardless of race, zip code or circumstance,” said StriveTogether CEO and President Jennifer Blatz.

StriveTogether is responsible for the national Cradle to Career Network Convening. They coach their data sweep plan to treat kids like guinea pigs in the language of social justice.

“We know the systems designed to serve our youth are failing children and families of color and those living in poverty. We exist to give every child, every chance, cradle to career. We’re here to help create possibilities — giving children opportunities to go further and do better than the generations before them,” Blatz said.

Studies have shown that more technology in the classroom actually harms student outcomes, but the end game is power, control, and profit for these rapacious bureaucrats.

Big data and technological progress are enabling leftist government officials to take totalitarianism socialism to unforeseen heights. George Orwell must be spinning in his grave.

Health Insurance Mandate Clears California Legislature

The California Legislature voted Monday to tax people who refuse to buy health insurance, bringing back a key part of former President Barack Obama’s health care law in the country’s most populous state after it was eliminated by Republicans in Congress.

The annual penalty will be THE GREATER OF:

  • $695 for each adult and $347.50 for each child, up to $2,085 per family.
  • 2.5 percent of the tax filer’s annual household income minus the federal tax filing threshold.

The tax now heads to Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who proposed a similar plan in January — an indication he will likely approve it.

The federal Affordable Care Act required everyone to buy health insurance or pay a penalty. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law, ruling the penalty was a tax.

In 2017, Republicans in Congress eliminated the penalty — beginning this year — as part of an overhaul of the federal tax code.

The bill passed by Democrats in California would reinstate the tax, effective Jan. 1. No Republicans voted for it. One Democrat in the state Assembly — Rudy Salas Jr. — voted against it.

The penalty won’t apply to everyone, including people living in the country illegally. Lawmakers on Monday also approved a bill that would expand government-funded health insurance to low-income young adults living in the U.S. illegally.

People in prison and those who are members of an American Indian tribe are also exempt, mirroring what had been in the federal law.

Democrats say the plan is part of their efforts to make sure everyone in California has health insurance.

If the bill becomes law, California would join Massachusetts, New Jersey, Vermont and Washington, D.C., next year as the only governments in the U.S. to penalize people who don’t buy health insurance.

It would also make California the only state to use money it gets from the penalty to help people who earn as much as six times the federal poverty limit pay their monthly health insurance premiums.

That means a family of four earning up to $150,000 a year would be eligible.

“These new subsidies will impact almost 1 million Californians and help them get the health care access that they deserve,” said Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco.

Republican state Sen. John Moorlach said in 2014 that 82% of Californians who paid the penalty for not having health insurance had taxable incomes of $50,000 or less.

“This trailer bill will take money away from people making $30,000 to $50,000 a year and give it to people making between $75,000 and $130,000 a year,” GOP Assemblyman Jay Obernolte said. “That makes no sense.”

The state has already extended government health benefits to children living in the country illegally. The plan approved Monday would extend that coverage to people as old as 25.

While the proposal easily passed the Legislature, it brought a rebuke from Democratic Sen. Maria Elena Durazo from Los Angeles. She criticized the bill for not providing health care coverage to people 65 and older living in the country illegally.

“We’ve missed an opportunity to create fairness and inclusion,” she said.

California Legislature Moves To Keep Trump Off 2020 Primary Ballot

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Legislature is trying again to force presidential candidates to publicly disclose their tax returns, hoping a new Democratic governor known for his clashes with President Donald Trump won’t block them this time.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom

The state Senate voted 27-10 on Thursday to require anyone appearing on the state’s presidential primary ballot to publicly release five years’ worth of income tax returns. The proposal is in response to Trump, who bucked 40 years of tradition by refusing to release his tax returns prior to his election in 2016.

California’s presidential primary is scheduled for March 3. If the bill becomes law, Trump could not appear on the state’s primary ballot without filing his tax returns with the California secretary of state.

“We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said Sen. Mike McGuire, a Democrat from Healdsburg and the co-author of the bill along with Sen. Scott Wiener, a San Francisco Democrat.

The Legislature passed a nearly identical bill in 2017, only to have it vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown, telling lawmakers he was concerned the law was unconstitutional. Brown, a Democrat, refused to release his tax returns while in office.

He left office in January and was replaced by Gavin Newsom, who has released his tax returns and embraced his role as a national “resistance” leader to Trump and his policies.
