    President Trump’s leading leftist legal tormentor lacks the legal qualifications to serve as California’s attorney general, according to a lawsuit pending in Golden State courts. The ambulance-chasing radical in question is Xavier Becerra, a Democrat who abandoned the U.S. House of Representatives after 24 years to be sworn in as California’s appointed attorney general on Jan. 24, 2017. Stalwart conservative Eric Early, a Los Angeles attorney who sought the Republican nomination in 2018 in the attorney general race, claims in his lawsuit that state law precludes Becerra from serving because he wasn’t practicing law for anything close to five years...

    David Daleiden Journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who exposed suspect dealings at taxpayer-funded abortion mill Planned Parenthood via undercover videos, were denied a request to halt criminal prosecution, a press release from The Thomas More Society said on Friday. Ocasio-Cortez: There'd Be 'As Many Planned Parenthood Clinics' As Post Offices If Male Politicians Could Get Pregnant (See video in link at source) Last month, the California Supreme Court issued a stay in the high-profile case based on "political bias and selective prosecution."

    The state attorney general’s office will review how the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles handled sexual abuse allegations over the last two decades in a probe that victims advocates say could send shock waves through the religious institution. A letter, dated Thursday, from Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra to Archbishop Jose H. Gomez requests that church officials preserve an array of documents related to clergy abuse allegations. “The California Department of Justice is conducting a review of your archdiocese’s handling of sexual misconduct allegations involving children, including whether your archdiocese has adequately reported allegations of sexual misconduct, as required under California’s...

    Democratic California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a leading legal antagonist of President Donald Trump, is not legally eligible to serve as his state’s top law enforcement officer, according to a lawsuit working its way through the state’s courts. After 24 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Becerra was appointed California attorney general on Jan. 24, 2017, replacing Kamala Harris (D), who was elected to the U.S. Senate. He won election to the position in his own right on Nov. 6, 2018. Eric Early, a Los Angeles lawyer who sought the Republican nomination last year in the AG race, argues...

    Abortionists convinced California AG to file charges over 'privacy' A preliminary hearing in California to decide whether or not to try two reporters who went undercover to expose the abortion industry’s sale of the body parts of unborn babies has been postponed. Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 felony counts against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who went undercover for the Center for Medical Progress, producing more than a dozen videos in 2015 that captured Planned Parenthood executives and others on camera. He accused the reporters of violating California’s strict privacy laws regarding making recordings, even though the videos often...
  • LOL: California AG Becerra: We Could Become 'The Wild, Wild West For High-Capacity Magazines'

    California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) is one of the people pushing to keep "high capacity" magazines, anything that holds over 10 rounds, illegal in the Golden State. For one week, Californians had the opportunity to get their hands on these magazines because of a court ruling that overturned the state's ban. One week later, the same judge issued a stay , which meant the ban went back into effect while the lawsuit, Duncan v. Becerra, was settled in court. Any magazines obtained during that week-long period were legal. Although it's impossible to know exactly how many "high capacity" magazines...

    California attorney general Xavier Becerra called Thursday for unauthorized immigration to be decriminalized, saying those crossing the southern border are “not criminals.” “They haven’t committed a crime against someone, and they are not acting violently or in a way that’s harmful to people,” California’s top cop told HuffPost. “And I would argue they are not harming people indirectly either.” “If you call them criminals, it’s a lot easier to get people to turn against them than if you call them undocumented immigrants,” he added.

    Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia are suing the Trump administration over new rules that would cut federal funding from Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide or discuss abortions. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, announced his decision on Monday to sue separately in a press conference and a coalition of 19 other states and the District of Columbia prepared to file their own suit Tuesday. The rule in dispute applies to a $286 million-a-year grant, known as Title X, that pays for birth control, testing of sexually transmitted diseases, and cancer screenings for 4 million low-income...

    California AG Xavier Becerra said the state will “definitely and imminently” be filing its 46th lawsuit against the Trump administration, this one over the president’s recent national emergency declaration on the southern border. “We are prepared,” Becerra, a Democrat, said on “This Week” Sunday. “We knew something like this might happen, and with our sister state partners, we are ready to go.” “We’re confident there are at least 8 billion ways that we can prove harm,” Becerra said, adding that “once we are all clear, all the different states are clear, what pots of money that taxpayers sent to D.C....
  • Gas is getting more and more expensive. California lawmakers demand an investigation

    California has the second highest fuel costs in the nation, with gas prices only rising in recent years. A committee working on behalf of the California Energy Commission discovered an “unexplained surcharge” in September 2017 costing Californians over $17 billion since February 2015, or $1,700 for a family of four. Now, nearly a year and a half later, lawmakers are taking notice. Nineteen Democrats sent a letter to Attorney General Xavier Becerra earlier this week asking him to lead an investigation. “There is a surcharge that began showing up between refineries and our gas tanks in the distribution and retailing...

    The Texas judge who ruled Obamacare unconstitutional earlier this month agreed Sunday to stay his decision from taking effect until it can be appealed. Federal Judge Reed O’Connor said he didn’t believe 17 state attorneys general, led by California’s Xavier Becerra, would prevail in their challenge of his blockbuster ruling. “But because many everyday Americans would otherwise face great uncertainty during the pendency of appeal, the Court finds that the December 14, 2018 Order declaring the Individual Mandate unconstitutional and inseverable should be stayed,” he wrote in the 30-page order.

    California's largest public utility provider could face murder or manslaughter charges if it were found responsible for causing the state's recent deadly wildfires, according to court documents filed by the state attorney general. Pacific Gas & Electric Co., or PG&E, could potentially face a range of criminal offenses if any of the wildfires broke out as a result of the utility failing to properly operate and maintain power lines, per an amicus brief filed in US District Court Friday by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. PG&E, which provides electricity to about 16 million Californians, has been under scrutiny for how...
  • Retiring members of Congress have $50 million in their campaign coffers. Where will it go?

    After entertaining a re-election campaign, Senator Bob Corker confirmed in February that he will retire at the end of his term. The Tennessee Republican will leave after 12 years in office and, if nothing changes, with $6.2 million in unspent campaign funds — the most of any outgoing member of Congress. Corker’s office did not respond to inquiries after two weeks about what will happen to leftover money at the end of the senator’s term. Neither did the offices of Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ed Royce (R-Calif.), Patrick Meehan (R-Pa.), Al Franken (D-Minn.) or Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio) — who have a...

    The Little Sisters of the Poor took their fight to not have to pay for abortions in their health care plan all the way to the Supreme Court and won. So that should be the end of the battle right? Not so much. Last year, pro-abortion attorneys general in Pennsylvania and several other states filed lawsuits to overturn new religious protections issued by the Trump administration. The new rules protect the nuns and other religious employers from having to pay for drugs that may cause abortions in their employee health care plans. A federal judge blocked the rule in response...

    Lawsuit Hearing To Remove Xavier Becerra as California Attorney General Should the powerful be allowed to ignore or change the laws they don’t agree with? Of course not. But that issue is at the heart of a lawsuit filed in May by former Attorney General candidate Eric Early against the unelected, appointed California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is running to keep his office. The case was heard Friday morning in Sacramento Superior Court. When Becerra filed his election paperwork with the California Secretary of State, he represented that he was qualified for the position of Attorney General. However, according...

    A secret memo marked “URGENT” detailed how the House Democratic Caucus’s server went “missing” soon after it became evidence in a cybersecurity probe. The secret memo also said more than “40 House offices may have been victims of IT security violations.” In the memo, Congress’s top law enforcement official, Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, along with Chief Administrative Officer Phil Kiko, wrote, “We have concluded that the employees [Democratic systems administrator Imran Awan and his family] are an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of our information systems and thereby members’ capacity to serve constituents.”...

    “I like you. You and me, we’re going to be best friends.” It is early January, and Eric Schneiderman is sitting in his 25th-floor office above Lower Manhattan, doing his best Donald Trump impression, puckering his lips into a duck face, scrunching up his nose and lowering his voice into something that resembles the president’s outer-borough growl. Schneiderman is recalling his meeting with Trump in 2010. Back then, Schneiderman was running for attorney general of New York, and Trump was still in his pre-birther, reality TV host phase. Trump had donated money to one of Schneiderman’s opponents in the Democratic...

    When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified last year about her decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information, she swore she never talked to “anyone” on the Clinton campaign. That categorical denial, though made in response to a series of questions about whether she spoke with Clintonworld about remaining attorney general if Hillary won the election, could come back to haunt her. The Senate Judiciary Committee, which has launched a bipartisan investigation into Lynch for possible obstruction of justice, recently learned of the existence of a document indicating Lynch assured the political director of Clinton’s campaign she...
