    Protesters vandalized the home of San Jose's mayor Friday in a demonstration against the Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake. They marched to the mayor’s home, then ran off after spraypainting the house. Mayor Sam Liccardo and a number of neighbors scrubbed the graffiti off later Friday. Around 150 protesters marched near San Jose City Hall in a Black Lives Matter demonstration earlier in the day, calling to defund the San Jose Police, according to the San Jose Spotlight. By nightfall, a smaller group of 30 or 40 protesters had veered off to march toward Liccardo’s home.

    It’s been scrawled across the pavement in front of government buildings in bright yellow paint, etched into cardboard signs and poster boards as a rallying cry during protests and addressed as a possibility in countless city council meetings. “Defund the police.” While cities across the country continue to reel in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd, some city officials, politicians and activists are taking action, working on measures aimed to divert funding away from what they view as bloated police budgets, and toward community-based organizations. The objective, commonly summed up with the controversial phrase, has both ardent...

    The New York Times ^ | 11 Nov 2019 | Adam Liptak
    A 1986 federal law makes it a crime to “encourage” unauthorized immigrants to come to or stay in the United States. “The statute potentially criminalizes the simple words — spoken to a son, a wife, a parent, a friend, a neighbor, a co-worker, a student, a client — ‘I encourage you to stay here,’” Judge A. Wallace Tashima wrote last year for a unanimous panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, in striking down the law. The law applies to a grandmother urging a grandchild to overstay a visa or a lawyer...

    Despite the fact that natural gas is the cleanest of the fossil fuels hands down (and now the cheapest), liberals continue to oppose it. The “keep it in the ground” folks scored another victory this week when the city of San Jose California voted to ban natural gas lines and appliances in all new construction projects going forward. This is allegedly part of the state-mandated goal of going 100% “carbon-free” by 2045. Of course, as with all things, the devil is in the details. (CBS San Francisco) San Jose became the biggest U.S. city to ban natural gas in...
