Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

One thing for sure is that the Alameda County Sheriff is NOT an oathkeeper. If he had any respect for the oath that he swore, to defend and protect the Constitution of the untied States, he would issue CCW permits to law abiding citizens. But he is in charge of one of the most crime ridden counties in the country and he will not let people defend themselves or their families. Ahern is a coward.

Tracy - you're hilarious. You link to Mother Jones and Al Jazeera (among others) both of which are as anti-American as can be. The term "right-wing extremist" is yet another one of those terms made up by the LibProg MSM trying to put down traditional Americans. While Antifa and BLM go around rioting, destroying public and private property and attacking law-abiding citizens exercising their Constitutional Rights, there has been NO such violence from the Oath Keepers, Threepers/III%'rs, or any of the rest of the conservative last line of defense. I CAN tell you however - if Antifa makes good on their pledge to start a civil/race war in November they WILL be shut down. Oh, and by the way: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/08/the-splc-smear-machine-is-being-funded-by-liberal-billionaires-why

Extreme? How many violent acts are they responsible for?

None.

Anti-government? Maybe, but that'd include the Trump government, too. So I think that means they're not a "right wing" group.

Libertarian, maybe.

Also, I remember them going to BLM protests... to keep looters out of stores.

They went to the Charlottesville protest... to stand between the racists and Antifa when the POLICE would NOT.

The SPLC is nothing more than a discredited progressive Alt-left extremist organization. No credibility whatsoever. On the other hand, the Oathkeepers are a very credible constitutional organization...something that the anti-American, neo-communist and establishment progressives abhor.

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

The SPLC is nothing more than a bunch liberal assholes that classified BLM as a good organization. But a group like the oathkeepers that care about the constitution bad have there wires screwed up and should investigated for the offshore bank accounts

Sources from splc to back up that claim about vfw and American legion?

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

The SPLC is a discredited left wing organization that is no longer recognized as an authority on hate groups. The SPLC has classified the VFW and American Legion as a "hate groups".

A "real" journalist" would visit Oath Keepers.org to find out what the organization's goals are. Would you be a real journalist, please Ms Lynn?

Re: “Updated: Opposition Emerges Right Off the Bat to A's Laney Ballpark Plans

A redevelopment promoter sez: "Parking is a neanderthal concept. Walking, BART/public transportation, shared rides, it's here."

Any access to 880 or BART is laughable in the light of the fact that both the freeway and the light rail system are well over capacity right now. Not to mention falling apart.

As long as there are more and more cars there will be more and more parking. Despite the attribution of parking to a preindustrial era when the wheel was not widely-understood.

Re: “Catered To You's Fish Sandwich Focus of New Short Film

I first heard about Catered To You when it was featured in the East Bay Express and my mouth watered. Seeing the short film made me empathize even more with Ms. Teena's plight. I hope her business can remain in Oakland, at least until I can get over there to check out her fish sandwich!

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and Councilmember Abel Guillen Lukewarm to A's Laney Ballpark Plan

They should tear down Golden Gate Fields, and build a new park there with a centerfield view of the GG Bridge.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and Councilmember Abel Guillen Lukewarm to A's Laney Ballpark Plan

Why not build on the infrastructure already in place at the Coliseum location? There is plenty of land, and good access to transportation. This area of Oakland could see dramatically economic benefits from thoughtful development which should also include housing for all income levels, and retail. It is possible to do something new and exciting on a tired old site. Let's take something old and re-purpose it to fit new needs and objectives. This is a far less disruptive approach.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and Councilmember Abel Guillen Lukewarm to A's Laney Ballpark Plan

This easily falls into the category "In life, a little rain must fall". The large area around the proposed stadium will suffer a loss of character. Homes will disappear, the character of the 'local' community will be irrevocably transformed, residents will be displaced and traffic and parking will require much more patience. On the other hand, growth will abound, new people will bring new ideas, a new Oakland landmark will be created and economic opportunities will be shared. Oakland, like any city, is in a constant state of flux. It cannot thrive without change. We must, not so simply, make this change work for us.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and Councilmember Abel Guillen Lukewarm to A's Laney Ballpark Plan

I am conflicted like many here in Oakland about loosing another team that adds value to our community. I am more concerned that the natural environment if the estuary is not compromised for profit!

Re: “Updated: Opposition Emerges Right Off the Bat to A's Laney Ballpark Plans

Apparently Gary Patton has never heard of Rent Control. Oakland's Eastlake area is populated with mostly older rent-controlled units. Oakland's rent control Ordinance is as restrictive as Berkeley's and not far behind theTenant protections included in SF's rent ordinance. In addition, this neighborhood has already commenced with a revitalization (not gentrification) several years now. A tenant controlling any kind of space long term, has created his or her own wealth due to the redistribution of this resource resulting from Rent Control. The readers' positive comments above are spot on. Laney can leverage the opportunity to enhance their educational resources. Parking is a neanderthal concept. Walking, BART/public transportation, shared rides, it's here. Self Driving cars next for more transportation efficiency. Remember: Gentrification is a dog whistle for NIMBYs. This is a YIMBY proposal. Kudos to the A's for great community outreach. Let's also stem the proliferation of Fake News as well. The recent community meeting at La Estrallita was overwhelmingly positive.

Not building on water's edge is shortsighted - IMO.

Re: “Updated: Opposition Emerges Right Off the Bat to A's Laney Ballpark Plans

I couldn't be happier about this. My whole life I've been dragging my family and friends to the Coliseum to watch games. And now they're moving within walking distance. I usually avoid the immediate area. Now I can imagine an area where I might visit frequently for many years to come. Maybe I'm seeing this through green colored lenses, but I see this as a big positive for the community at large. Plus it's privately funded. I know you can't please everyone, but this plan seems like the best option. I think the alternative would include having zero professional sports in a city that currently has three.

Re: “Tuesday’s Briefing: Brown Waters Down Sanctuary State Bill; Lawmakers OK Plan to Protect Immigrant Tenants

Jerry Brown and the California legislature continue to move ever to the right on social and environmental policy, at a time when statewide resistance to national insanity is essential for our future. Brown, Democrats and Republicans, corporations and their media pawns need to pay a price, the to remember every day what is at stake. I, for one, will resort to the final solution when my land, air, water, and community are sacrificed for the benefit of greed and political expediency. Brown is a liar, a politically savvy and personally, ethically compromised charlatan, and activists need to make every day of the rest of his opportunistic life miserable.
