Be careful who you donate to....

  We have recently become aware of a couple who has been taking donations for years after minor illness, fraudulently not reporting them to the IRS, fixing up their home, buying new cars, etc.

   Be very careful and always write a check or ask for a receipt when you offer to donate. Many are out there ripping hardworking people off.  Report them to the IRS as we do. Let them do a complete investigation.

If you associate in any way with a RACIST, you ARE a racist!

Trumps Arts Council disbands

  In the wake of Trumps rant against the left in a press conference this week, where he defended the racist right wing, alt-right, white supremacists, his CEO support disappeared.

   Now his Arts Council has disbanded after many resigned in disgust.  Trump will not be attending the Kennedy Center honor night this year, as other Presidents have done in the past.

The WHOPPER about Gen. Pershing!!

   Everyone knows that Trump is a pathological liar. It's much more than a joke on late night TV. He can't seem to stop himself. He really needs professional help!

  Yesterday he repeated a lie about General Pershing, talking about bullets dipped in pigs blood and Islamic terrorists in the Phillipines, huh??  Do his supporters believe this bullsh**?

Steve Bannon OUT of Trump cabinet

   NBC just announced that Steve Bannon is no longer Chief Strategist in the Trump cabinet. Apparently he planned to resign before the Charlottesville debacle.

Supervisor Mills cries during secret meetings at Kautz?

  We have received information that Supervisor District 4 Dennis Mills began crying during the later part of the first day of the Calaveras secret meetings at Kautz.  Now we know why he wanted the meetings to be secret, no film, no proof!!

   He seemed inconsolable, something about his cannabis garden being discovered after he worked so hard to hide it from the cops? Mills is a right wing wacko who is opposed to any cannabis publicly. What will he do now?  We already had heard he was being recalled.

Who are Calaveras Supervisor Oliveira's favorite RACISTS???

   Everyone knows that last campaign District 3 Supervisor Oliveira ran a racist and purely gun thug campaign,  led by a man we know to be a low-life racist Mike Preston and others, like dirty racist cops.

   Now that we have a known racist President, will Oliveira try to hide his racism and kkk friends?  We are watching to find out!  We think he will continue his white supremacist ways!!

   We are also told that our temporary Sheriff DiBasilio hangs out with them, meaning that he is also one of them. We do NOT need racists in elected office in Calaveras.  Is the Foothills Rising group going to fight them???

From the creation of the "Birther" movement, you've known...

   All the people who supported and voted for Trump are not racists?  Now that's a good joke!  I didn't know he was such a racist? 

Monuments hauled away in darkness

   Baltimore, Maryland City Council decided they weren't waiting for Trumps friends and supporters like the kkk, the white supremacists, neo-nazis and alt-righters to descend on their city.

It's not Trumps fault!! They're NICE Nazi's!!

   The GOP has failed the voters of the United States of America. Neither McConnell nor Ryan will name Trump in their statements against Neo-Nazis. (but he says they're NICE Nazis)

   Republicans blame Bannon and Duke and Spencer, (known white Supremacists) for Trumps insane rant in New York yesterday.  What we'd like to know is, what do Jared Kushner and Ivanka think? And what does Netanyahu now believe?

If your neighbor shoots onto YOUR land....

In this case, a pellet gun was used by a
lazy bored scumbag who never liked to
work for a living, and thinks breaking the
law is lots of fun, especially
torturing innocent animals.
   If you are unfortunate enough to live near a mentally unstable person, who breaks the law freely without fear and shoots onto your land, what can you do? You have a right to shoot

Al Segalla says " how to keep good Calaveras County employees "

   Al Segalla stated at the Calaveras Supervisor meeting on August 8, 2017 that we, the taxpayers, should make sure to offer good employees, like deputies, a raise so they don't leave.

   Segalla apparently doesn't know that good deputies leave and bad deputies get promoted, at the desire of the temporary Sheriff DiBasilio.  The worst of the worst stay in Calaveras. They good ones go elsewhere, to avoid the corruption of Calaveras County.

Strange woman says only cannabis causes child death???

   A very strange sounding woman got up at the podium at the Calaveras Supervisors meeting on August 8, 2017 to say that only CANNABIS is causing children to die as a result of their parents using cannabis.

  They don't die from neglect due to parents that use METH, BOOZE, and other drugs. The woman who spoke sounded like she was related to Mr.  BigPot!  Would she like to hear how many kids have had to deal with the BOOZERS just in Calaveras County???

Big Pot McmAnus...BAN COMMITTEE???

Come on everyone!
Let's go have a mind-altering
bottle or can of booze!!
  Mr. BigPot McmAnus stood at the podium at the August 8, 2017 Calaveras Supervisors meeting, to speak for Supervisor Oliveira, on whose campaign committee he serves.

  He identified himself as the Ban Committee?  What ban committee? What does the IRS have on Ban Committee with MR BIGPOT's name?  What church is funding his behavior??   The public has a right to know what corruption is going on!!

Trump signs, signs of Trump...

  You've seen many of the signs of Trump ... but have you seen this one in Sac??

Calaveras Supervisors meet to AGAIN approve Moose-Gate Bridge

   How many times has the Moose-Gate Bridge on Blagen Road been on the Calaveras Supervisors agenda already?  Oliveira just can't seem to get things right! Here you go again, Ollie!!

Temporary Calaveras Sheriff says he was a 'POTHEAD'!!

   Since the temporary Calaveras Sheriff DiBasilio admits he was a "POTHEAD" but says he is no longer, something is definitely amiss.

   He now chases after anyone with cannabis, but let's meth labs, dealers and users go free?  See the connection?  What is he now hooked on?  Why does District 3 Supervisor Oliveira have 'on him'  that he keeps him as a sheriff in Calaveras County, when he is obviously so bad at it??
