USBC News Wire. Sacramento, California- A California Democratic Party politician, Bob Wieckowski, is pushing a controversial bill which would allow non-citizens to judge American citizens by serving on juries in California.
The bill, which is likely to be struck down by courts as unconstitutional, has already passed the California assembly 45-25 supported by the Democratic Party and liberal Republicans. The bill will now move on to the California Senate.
Critics have questioned the rationale behind such a bill...

What McCarthy and the Birchers warned us about 50 to 60 years agoo is happening in waves even more extreme than they imagined and at an exponentional rate.
I quit serving on juries. I get a doc excuse now. The last couple of juries I was on (one an attempted murder case)I got sick of the stupid liberal azz teachers that are always on the jury. They make the decision harder and last a heckuva lot longer than it should. They cannot follow jury instructions or think rationally.
The Why is that they (Liberals) wish to erase all differences between citizens and non-citizens.
The IRA did not say we are killing in the name of God. The Muslim terrorist say There is only one god Allah as they kill.
The How is an interesting question.
I dont know the process o jury selection in California but in Ohio the jury pool is selected from registered voters. In California perhaps they select from Licensed Drivers maybe?
Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t jury duty selections drawn from the voter rolls? Kinda proves the point that illegals are voting out there.
“Sort of like the Cloward Pivens approach to intentionally destroying the country.”
One of the reasons for the miracle of the US was it becoming a melting pot. Immigrants love for liberty and equality of opportunity superseded their ethnic and religious identities. They wanted to be Americans, not Germans, Irish, Swedish, English, Polish, or Italian.
Since the 1960’s the progressives in government and academia have done everything possible to destroy the concept of the melting pot. Through affirmative action and government programs they have emphasized racial, ethnic, and religious differences. Today people identify themselves by their gender, their race, their sexual orientation, or their religion. The concept of being a freedom loving American is virtually gone. The concept of equality of opportunity has been totally destroyed with government now taking the role of deciding winners and losers.
The new immigration policy, with the amnesty and “pathway to citizenship” to follow will destroy what is left of the concept of national identity. We will make somewhere between 10 and 20 million people citizens who entered the country illegally and who will receive full benefits of citizenship without any responsibility. Why would someone who broke the law to become a beneficiary of our welfare state feel any obligation to follow other laws or be a responsible citizen? If we allow them to hold dual citizenship (we likely will), they will feed at our table while maintaining loyalty to another nation. The value of American citizenship will be reduced to eligibility for social welfare benefits.
If it wasn’t so sad it would be hilarious!
What she really wants is not to serve.
So next time she should show up with a copy of on of Rush Limbaughs or some other well know (hated) conservative writer. Read it will waiting for the lawyers to go through the selection.
Chances are good the defense will eliminate her from the jury.
Of course living in SF she may have to endure dirty looks and evil comments from other jurors. It may be best to carry the book in her handbag and not get it out until in the court room and put it back before leaving.
Every damned “reacharound” these thugs can come up with may well be enacted into law unless the people with whom the government is at war resist. This is what it is now. Government is at war with its own people.
APPEAL...AFTER APPEAL...AFTER APPEAL...AFTER APPEAL.In the *Federal* courts,of course,California courts and judges make North Korean ones look fair by comparison.
I am pretty sure we already do. By judicial fiat if I am not mistaken.
Our problem is America is being sold out.
BOTH PARTIES are sending American manufacturing overseas. While keeping our own markets 100% open to all foreign competitors.
Nobody in either party, is advocating for American workers.
We are getting further, and further off-track.
“Facts are stubborn things.”
Just a matter of time till I get out of this looney bin.
I wonder what the Liberal’s reaction will be when:
1. California votes to secede from the Union and either a) rejoin Mexico or b) become its own country (Aztlan).
2. About a week later, they will nationalize all the property owned by Caucausians.
Yes we are that far gone, this is the political evil wrought by illegal immigration, liberals and of course democrats.
Gee..., I wonder why? lol
"Por La Raza todo, Fuera de La Raza nada". Very simple.
Trying to use reason to figure it out is a waste of energy.
Could this possibly be legal? Jury of peers or jury of and by the world?
