The rampant insanity continues unabated in the state of the insane.
I truly am “behind enemy lines in Occupied Fornicalia.”
My taxpayer dollars are going to be used to fight taxpayers. Meaning, I’m funding the state to fight my philosophy.
California Legislature to pay Eric Holder to challenge Trump administration
by Taryn Luna
The California Legislature has hired the firm of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as outside counsel to assist legal challenges posed by conflicts with the Trump Administration, Democratic leaders announced Wednesday.
Holder’s firm, Covington & Burling, will advise the Legislature “in our efforts to resist any attempts to roll back the progress California has made,” said Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon in a joint statement on Wednesday.
As I said, my taxpayer dollars going to fight me. $75,000 in fact.
The Assembly and Senate have agreed to split the firm’s $25,000-a-month fee for an initial three-month period. “Given the urgency, intensity and complexity of the work, these terms are eminently fair and consistent with industry standards,” Assembly spokesman Kevin Liao said in a statement. “The initial agreement extends for a minimum of three months, at which time the parties will mutually and more specifically assess the evolving federal landscape and determine what overall scope of work will be required to meet California’s challenges going forward.”
Fornicalia politicians admit that illegals voted for them.
“This is a critical moment in the history of our nation,” Rendon and de León said. “We have an obligation to defend the people who elected us and the policies and diversity that make California an example of what truly makes a nation great.”
Note: “We have an obligation to defend the people who elected us.” Why would lawful Fornicalians require defense?
State legislative leaders have struck a defiant tone against President-Elect Donald Trump. The day after the election Rendon and de León issued a statement praising California, which voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton, and pledging to protect the state from Trump policies that may hurt the economy or infringe on the rights of people living in the state.
“I am honored that the Legislature chose Covington to serve as its legal advisor as it considers how to respond to potential changes in federal law that could impact California’s residents and policy priorities,” Holder said in a statement, “I am confident that our expertise across a wide array of federal legal and regulatory issues will be a great resource to the legislature.”
But wait. Do I detect some potential conflict of interest here?
De León has connections to Covington that extend beyond Holder.
Really? In what fashion?
Dan Shallman, a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office, is the brother of John Shallman, whose Southern California-based political consulting and advertising agency serves as the longtime consulting house for de León and several other California elected officials. It is paid a $10,000 a month retainer by the California Democratic Party. This summer, Shallman Communications hired de León’s daughter, Lluvia de Milagros Carrasco, a recent graduate of Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, to work as an account coordinator.
There is going to be, clearly, a fight. First, a court fight. But possibly, in time, a civil fight that will extend across the nation.
Either the rule of law wins, or the rule of law loses.
If the rule of law loses and entire states can flaunt laws, then why should any other state — or, for that matter, you and me — obey state or federal laws? If the rule of law loses, the precedent will have been set.
This is a place that, trust me, California and Leftists nationally do not want to go.
Can you now see the vital importance of the Second Amendment and the First Amendment?
