Re: “White Nationalists Plan Yet Another Brawl in Berkeley

The organizer of the rally has specifically denounced white supremacy, Nazis, KKK, or any other racist ideology. The only people I see starting brawls is Antifa. This Stickman character then rushes to fight off Antifa, which openly promotes violence. All you are doing is giving him a chance to look good.

The organizer Joey Gibson has called out Pelosi on TV news for calling him a white supremacist and I would be surprised if she doesn't get sued. This looks like is a cluster-fuk set up by the elites to start a civil war, so they can crack down with martial law.

Re: “Women-Led Mosque to Open in Berkeley

Testimony on how i got my LOAN from ...

I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. Im glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks

Re: “Housing Groups Slam Proposal to Redefine Affordable Housing in Oakland

The plain and simple fact is that people are pouring into the bay area. The reasons are irrelevant but many. I'm a Bay Area native. Born in Richmond. I raised my kids further east... cities in the bay ring were dangerous and undesirable then. Now, that's been offset by the costs and awareness of what living so far out does to the environment.

This WILL continue. As long as the residents play NIMBY, "NO CHANGES TO MY NEIGHBORHOOD!!!", prices will rise. Screaming "it's not fair" will NOT solve the issue of no housing stock. Bitching about developers profiting from the situation won't help either. Come up with a solution people. Stop burning down and blocking new development. There is no solution that will be fast for decades of this behavior.

Re: “Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman Charged with Possession of Leaded Stick by Alameda District Attorney

I see DBG is yet again attempting to incite the populace by raising the focus on these repugnant people and their ideologies.

I can't say ignoring them is a solution either but playing to their desire for publicity and emphasizing "how dangerous" they are gives them exactly what they want.

MOST irresponsible DBG!

Re: “White Nationalists Plan Yet Another Brawl in Berkeley

Let's keep in mind these "peaceful" conservatives arrive armed and armored, ready for battle and looking to provoke one.

I don't think we can call antifa or those in the press who support them much better.

While repugnant and evil, the Klan and American Nazi party have marched and been largely ignored for decades. I'm not sure if that allowed them to grow or if ignoring them caused withering. I do understand the concern about the recent ascendance of their ideology under all of it's names; It frightening and all too reminiscent of 1939.

I think the ONLY reply to them is the video, found in numerous places, called "Don't Be A Sucker". I'd post a link to in on the internet archive, but I'm not sure it's allowed.

Re: “White Nationalists Plan Yet Another Brawl in Berkeley

This is such spin, people who support free speech & are conservative are not all so called white,racist or there for a "BRAWL"! Remember if the police are not protecting conservatives from marching in support or against something & constantly allow the alt left to harassed or even attack, thats the real problem! I feel all sides are being infiltrated by radicals who want each side to look bad at the expense of good people! I grew up when people agreed to disagree no matter what you heard or felt you do NOT attack or harass people! I was at the inauguration, it was not fair the way we were treated & some are using all the violence from the last admin to now to push there own agendas and its making life unbearable for conservatives which Has terrible consequences for all!

Re: “Oakland Police Assist Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents in Early Morning Arrest

In addition to the Nixle statement that David Howard posted here, more relevant details are in the East Bay Times. 1) A federal spokesperson said, "It's not an immigration enforcement action. This is a criminal investigation." 2) A woman at the house owns two janitorial businesses, and agents investigated whether she exploits people. 3) This woman's 21-year-old daughter who also lives at the house said that after initially being aggressive, the federal agents were "really nice and we were treated respectfully." -- All relevant details that writer Darwin "Disregard the Facts" omits.

Re: “Oakland Police Assist Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents in Early Morning Arrest

Folks on Nixle got this alert:

Today, August 16, 2017, at approximately 6:30 a.m., Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) served a federal criminal search warrant in connection with human sex trafficking of juveniles in our city ( 700 block of 27th Street).
HSI is conducting a criminal investigation, not a civil immigration or deportation action. This branch focuses on Transnational Gangs, Human Trafficking, Human Smuggling, Child Exploitation and Narcotic Enforcement.

Yesterday, HSI headquarters in San Francisco contacted Oakland Police Chief Anne E. Kirkpatrick and requested two police officers to assist with traffic control. Chief Kirkpatrick gave strict instructions to the commander and officers that they may not assist HSI with any enforcement efforts. The officers only role was that of traffic control and neighborhood safety.

Although the Oakland Police Department no longer has a contract (MOU) to actively participate in investigations with HSI, the Department may assist our local, state, and federal agencies when requested as it pertains to traffic control, community safety and officer safety.

Re: “White Nationalists Plan Yet Another Brawl in Berkeley

Lincoln, himself, said he would free
no slaves, if he could conquer the
South without them. There were race
riots and blacks were lynched on
Broadway, in the middle of the Civil
War. Clearly, Lincoln only freed the
slaves as a means to end the war. Such
are the words and actions, of a
conqueror. The First thing the Egyptians,
Romans, Ottomans, English, Communists,
Nazis and Yankees did when conquering
new territory was tear down the native
idols, destroy the native culture and
supplant it with their own.

Yankee kids see their parents' rent to
own homes siphoned off by the fraud of
Wall Street. They see their parents
financially enslaved only to have their
life's earnings drained by Wall Street
games. They look around their tenements
and know the prosperity they're sold
is the mirage of a Ponzi scheme.

Would you expect Wall Street to accept
the blame for the constant failure of
their culture and routine collapse
of their economy? When Yankees brainwash
children in those indoctrination centers
they laughingly call schools, and the
rote singsong of liberty, freedom,
justice and prosperity fail against
the back drop of segregated slum
reality, what else can they fill their
kids' heads with, but hatred of the
South and all things Southern? Already
brow beaten and frustrated Long before
they drop out, where do Yankees send
their young Taliban in training to
vent their anger? South, to purge their
disillusionment on tarnished chunks of
bronze and tattered bits of colored

No more than the Civil War, these
statues have little to do with
slavery. They represent nothing
more than the continued defiance
of a conquered people and zone of
occupation. Just like their Commie
and Nazi brethren, the Yankee Empire
cannot abide defiance. Every time
the South shows any signs of economic
or political independence; when
cotton was king, when oil rained in
Texas, today, the young Taliban march
South, to exert Yankee dominance,
and impose Yankee rule. After
Reconstruction and the fifties invasion,
ever so, the South did and will rise,
again, and, some day, live free of
the YSA.

Re: “Only Six Percent of Housing Under Construction in Oakland Is Affordable

Once again the lack of will and political courage allowed the biggest housing bubble in history to evolve without strong policies in place for affordable housing. Back in 2005, the Oakland City Council had a chance to adopt policies to address this issue, but ultimately did nothing and kicked the can down the road. As a result, only a pitiful few affordable units will be built in this current cycle. Moreover, the lack of citywide policies to address this issue has left the community to it's own resources to slow down the invasion of the privileged through gentrification. Unfortunately, negative tactics such as burning down new developments before new residents can move in are a direct result of this failure in leadership. Some are convinced that the system is rigged and nobody is listening to the cries for affordability and pleas to retain the soul of this city. The need to require affordable housing along with all the fancy new developments should be shouted from the rafters by the Mayor, City Administrator and most of all the Planning Director. Instead, we had a previous Planning Director (Rachael Flynn) sit on a ULI panel and proclaim that there was no housing crisis in Oakland. How out of touch can you be? I did not hear the Mayor or even one City Council person condemn that statement as ridiculous. All we get on this issue is silence from the top and more invasion of the high tech, high paid new residents. Oakland residents have a long history of direct action against an unfair system. We should not expect that to change as long as those who are supposed to lead are derelict in their duties.

Re: “Only Six Percent of Housing Under Construction in Oakland Is Affordable

Statistics are SUCH an interesting thing... And SO easily used to deceive. Especially when only single metrics of the data are quoted. I'd expect a PhD to understand and question that use, as the author of this article is.

I'd want to know what the higest, lowest, mean, the median (they ARE very different metrics) are and what the first and third quartile look like.

That set of numbers will very accurately describe what the data actually is, not just what one might want to paint it to be.

More subtle DBG, but still slanted. Nice try.

Re: “Oakland Police Commission Candidates Face Questions of Experience, Bias, and Conflicts

The article does not examine the selection panel at all, only the applicants to the commission itself. Well, councilmember Campbell Washnington nominated Shikira Porter to the selection panel. She recently posted on a neighborhood list that if any OPD community policing officer merely spoke to some Latino youth, it would "put these 3 young men in harms way" and cause "irreparable harm." Anti-OPD venom drives this whole commission.

Re: “Black Oakland Leaders Criticize Mayor and Police Chief for 'Lack of Control' Over Police Department

First of all, both Brooks and Carson come from the Ron Dellums political tree, who last time I checked, had very little time or sincerity for the plight of the citizens of Oakland. With that being said, God only knows their motives for deciding to check in publicly on this issue. No doubt it is completely self serving for both. Secondly, how ironic is it that while the Oakland command staff remains in turmoil, OPD Deputy Chief Danielle Outlaw is selected as the new Chief of Police for the City of Portland. Outlaw is a Black woman who is educated, qualified, experienced and ready to lead. Not only that, she is an Oakland native and veteran of the OPD staff. Why did I not hear her name one time while the Mayor of chaos (Schaaf) looked for and hired at least three new chiefs in 9 months? My sense is that Outlaw had the common sense and good instincts to know that the Oakland Police Chief job is a looser and did not apply or was glossed over by unqualified people making the selection. A good candidate who is up and coming with an eye to their professional future would want no part of the job. She knows full well that the executive and command staff of OPD is a mess. Further, that nobody in City Hall, not the Mayor or anybody else in the City Administrators office has any idea what they are doing. Congratulations to Danielle, who illustrated that knowing the difference between a good opportunity and any opportunity is a sign of intelligence. Too bad Oakland is so screwed up, we will not get to reap the benefits of the potential for real leadership in the Police Department any time soon.
