A lawsuit was brought against California Governor Gavin Newson for governing by fiat. A reporter asked him at this press conference, whether he had been governing by fiat and whether he would moderate his behavior in the future. News replied, “We only did what was appropriate.”
Kevin Kiley, one of the two Assemblymen bringing the lawsuit, reported that Newsom’s attorney said that the prinicpals of the American system, “only work well in theory”.
At the trial, Gov. Newsom’s attorney said these principles – separation of powers, republican government, and the rule of law – only work well “in theory.” I’d say over two centuries of American history show they work pretty well in practice too. – Assemblyman Kevin Kiley
For updates on the trial of Gavin Newsom, would suggest liking Kevin Kiley’s Page. Assemblyman James Gallagher is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit.
On April 23, 2019, as Covid was just starting to spread in California, Governor Newsom said in response to a question by a reporter from Bloomberg that he saw the Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity to make political change, to bring about a new progressive era.
In his early press conferences, Newsom also mentioned frequently the need for “prescriptive solutions”. Below are some synonyms for “prescriptive”.
Stephen Glenn McLeod, aka Lord Mcleod, was one of the more highly visible people during the Black Lives Matter protests and riots in San Diego in the late summer. He has just been charged in federal court with a felony for aiming a laser at at a police helicopter.
The San Diego District Attorney said recently that the County has charged about two dozen persons with felonies. It is not known, how many federal police have charged. This is what really put a damper on the vandalism, mob action and riots by Black Lives Matter in San Diego, quiet, behind-the-scenes police work by San Diego and federal agencies. It would seem that a lot more is yet to come out.
San Diego is probably not unique. This kind of police action has likely been taking place around the country. The media just does not much cover it. Read the details of McLeod’s charges below in this media release from the US Attorney’s Office.
Tasha Williamson, an organizer for Black Lives Matter, said on October 13 that everyone is just waiting for the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Unit (CIU) to make their move. Maybe it has started, as she predicted. She points out that people will soon be offered immunity deals to testify against their fellow accused criminals. Two banks and another major building were burned to the ground in La Mesa during the Black Lives Matter riot on May 30th, where Williamson was the most prominent organizer and spokesperson.
Tasha Williamson – Everyone just waiting for the FBI to make their move.
McLeod admits in one of his videos that he takes medication for a psychological disorder, called schizoaffective disorder. If true, this may help explain his delusional, manic behavior, but would not necessarily absolve him of legal liability, unless he meets the legal definition of insanity at the time he allegedly committed the crime.
Below are a couple of videos featuring Stephen McLeod. Tasha Williamson is the black woman at the start of the first video.
In this video, Stephen McLeod more or less admits that Black Lives Matter burned down two banks and another major building in downtown La Mesa and says it was retribution for slavery. McLeod is he one in the preview image with the black cap, shaved head and red beard.
Stephen McLeod – BLM Bank Burnings Were Retribution For Slavery
McLeod was a “volunteer” for Black Lives Matter and was a regular participant at the protests and in the mob violence and riots. He drove an illegal green van that has no registration, no insurance and he has the VIN covered up, as if it may be stolen. He often followed the marches in his illegal green van and carried supplies for the march.
Therefore, he was an insider and it sounds as if he may have some knowledge about the devastating arson attack on La Mesa, judging from what he says about the motivation for the attack. Black Lives Matter rioters also set fire to part of City Hall that night, although the fire petered out. They also appeared to have had the intention of burning down the police station as had just happened in Minneapolis the night before the riot here in La Mesa, which occurred on the night of May 30th.
In this next video, McLeod participates in an attack on a neighbor at a protest at the San Diego Police Chief’s residence on August 28th. This was the same night that he is accused of aiming a laser at a police helicopter. Notice the green laser being pointed in the eyes of the beating victim at about 10:00. That was probably McLeod pointing the laser. This is actually McLeod’s video of the event that I am re-using.
McLeod Part Of BLM Mob That Beats Police Chief’s Neighbor (About 9:00)
McLeod is part of a this group of Black-Lives-Matter anarchists, brawling with police outside the San Diego Police Department headquarters in Downtown San Diego. This event took place on August 24, 2020 at a sympathy for Kenosha protest. The man in blue is Stephen McLeod.
McLeod was living in his van for about a year and a half. He got a job in July, 2020, as a caregiver for an elderly surgeon, who lives downtown. This may have been arranged for him as indirect reward for his participation in the the Black Lives Matter protests. He was allowed the use of a luxury, furnished condominium unit, which rents for more than $2,000 per month. The doctor that he cares for lives in another unit. He also apparently receives a monthly disability check from the government, probably due to his psychological disorder.
Stephen McLeod Stopped By SDPD In His Illegal BLM “support” van
Four miles of 30-foot steel bollard fence have been finished in Tecate, California. Previously there was mostly landing mat fence here 8-10 feet high and a couple of small sections of low bollard fence that was built probably around 2008. Landing matt fence was originally intended only to stop vehicles, not to stop persons crossing on foot.
View towards the east.
The fence runs towards Mt Celli in the east an older, it is joined up with and older, pre-Trump, bollard fence which already existed on the hill.
This vehicle belongs to Marines assisting the Border Patrol directly on the Border. My understanding is that they watch for illegal crossers and call the Border to apprehend them. They use the van to transport detainees. The back area of the van has been modified to transport prisoners. I did not take their photos, because they did not want to be photographed.
Armed U.S Marines guarding the border.
In past administrations they would talk about sending troops to the border, but they would not be armed and not directly on the border. These Marines are armed with loaded weapons and they are directly on the border. There are probably hundreds of them deployed in this way along the entire border.
The next photo shows the transition from the “Trump Wall” to the “Bush Fence”. The pre-existing bollard fence on the right was most likely built in the last couple of years of the Bush administration or the very early years of the Obama administration, before Obama cut it off. On the left is the “Trump Wall”. In this area, the older Bush bollard fence is about 15 feet tall and the new Trump fence is about 26 feet tall. It depends on how deep the foundation is and they may have reason to plant the bollards deeper here, such as to discourage shallow tunnels under the fence.
Transition from Trump Wall (left) to Bush Fence (right).
The Border Patrol has been calling this a “fence” for about 15 years or longer. There were a couple hundred miles of this bollard fence on the border, before Trump. They have long experience with it and this is the design they wanted to continue with the new construction. It is much to Trump’s credit that he gave them what they wanted. It is not the Border Patrol’s fault that the earlier fence was often dilapidated junk. It was the fault of past administrations, who did not support border security adequately.
This photo shows a section of the older Obama fence in the foreground and the new Trump fence in the back ground. Some of it was there before Obama’s term in office, but I call it the Obama fence, because he was legally obligated to build a secure border fence by the Secure Fence Act of 2006. Obama did not attempt to do it so he owns the previous fence.
Even the concertina wire was added during the Trump administration. Earlier, there was only the vehicle barrier in this area made out of sections of pipes wielded together. A person could just walk across in this area to the east of Mount Celli. In the middle of Tecate, it was the landing matt fence, which us only slightly better.
This next image is from the Mexican side, made in 2016. It shows this section of the border just east of Mt. Celli before the new fence was built. There was a couple hundred yards of old 15-foot bollard fence going across Mt. Celli. Down below in the dry wash there was nothing except the rail fence with not even any concertina wire. Why would anyone build a bollard fence on the hill when it was much easier to walk across in the dry wash below? There are many more areas like this in Campo to the east.
Dry wash to the east of Mt. Celli (made in 2016). Anyone could walk across here.
This image shows one of the crews a little further to the east of Tecate working to finish the Campo section of the border fence. There are reportedly several contractors working on the Campo section in order to have it finished by the end of this year.

On the west side of Tecate the fence extends partway up the side of Tecate Peak. The last few hundred yards is a Bush-era, 15-foot-high, bollard fence. Try clicking on the photo and expanding it to find the vehicle of the Border Patrolmen hiding behind a large boulder to the right of the end of the fence, waiting for illegals to cross.
There are no plans as far as I am aware to extend the fence further across Tecate Peak. On the other side, of the Tecate Peak, between it and Otay Mountain, are about 6 miles that are completely open, much of it along the Tijuana river. There is no border barrier at all there. It is going to be the most open part of the California border, after this new fence is totally completed. I am not sure why they are not building there. It could be, because the Tijuana river criss-rosses the border several times in that area. It may be an engineering challenge to build a fence in that area that would withstand flash floods in the riverbed, which are not uncommon.
Next is a video that I made when the work on the new border fence started in this area in the late summer of 2019.
This video by a Mexican reporter for “California Medios” is from 2016. I reused it and subtitled it in English. It shows how easy it was to cross in the middle of Tijuana and the conditions in this area are discussed, such as the kidnapping and extortion of illegal crossers by criminals. It also indicates how the local police feel about it. The reporter says that it takes less than 5 minutes, but in this case the actual crossing of the old border fence took only about 20 seconds for the three of them to cross, one of them very much overweight.
Fifteen miles of 30-foot-high primary bollard fence has been completed in the Yuha desert, just west of Calexico, California. Below is a map of the location, showing the area the fence covers. This area was wide open before the new fence was built.
It seemed to me in the area that the Border Patrol agents have much higher morale now than last year when the area was unsecured and fake refugees were crossing every day by the hundreds. Last year, I often heard agents talk about how soon they could retire. Now, it seems like they feel more empowered to do their job and are much more enthusiastic.
Bollard fence is being built all along the border in California, Arizona and New Mexico. There may be some gaps, if so, I will show it when I find them. In general, though, this new bollard fence is a tremendous improvement over the old fence.
Primary Bollard Fence in the Yuha desert 100% completed.
This is panoramic image of the fence on the western side of the Yuha Desert. The fence ends on the left at a ridge at the edge of the Jacumba wilderness. On the far left of the image is part of Signal Mountain, a local landmark across the border in Mexico.
You can click on the panoramic images and expand them with a touch screen for a better view.

Secondary fences may be necessary in some places. The secondary fence is to prevent those who may get past the primary fence from escaping into the brush, before a border patrol agent can apprehend him. It does not have to be as formidable or as expensive and the primary fence. It have been reported that any secondary fences necessary will be constructed in the next phase, if Trump is re-elected.
The fence entirely finished in this area, but at time of this photo was taken, they were still working on the border road as here.

The photo below is taken a little further to the east in the middle of the Yuha Desert looking twoards Mt. Signal. The mountain is named Signal Mountain, as you might guess, because they used to send signals from the top of the mountain. Because they were still working on the border road, I could not get closer to the border here.

IMAGES OF FORMER OBAMA’S “SECURE” BORDER FENCE
These photos reveal the Obama concept of a secure border fence as implemented earlier. This is the fence in the same area, the Yuha Desert, before the new Trump bollard fence was constructed. Many liberals/leftests said the new 30-foot-high bollard fence was just a minor upgrade of the existing, secure Obama fence. Most of the fence along the border was much like this, if there even was a barrier at all, before the Trump fence was built. The Obama fence was one designed to fail and it served that purpose well.
INITIAL REPORT ON YUHA DESERT
This video is my initial report on the Yuha Desert and surrounding area from July, 2019, before the current bollard fence was started.
This video shows an example of how they used to drive vehicles through the older, existing fence in this area carrying illegal aliens or a load of drugs. The night vision part of video in this clip was recorded by the Border Patrol of El Centro Sector. The new 30-foot bollard fence totally stops vehicles from driving through and greatly reduces the number of illegals crossing on foot.
ILLEGAL-CROSSING WATER STATIONS DISAPPEARING
There used to be 15-18 water stations for illegal aliens that the radical, open-borders organization, Border Angels, put in this area. Most have disappeared, presumably because there are not many illegal crossers in the Yuha Desert any longer. There are still at least 3-4 water stations near the neighboring Jacumba Wilderness, though, where work on a bollard fence has not yet been completed. The new bollard fence will, no doubt, save many lives of those who would otherwise have tried to cross the border illegally.
The CDC is currently following WHO guidelines for counting Covid-19 deaths, which seem. designed to inflate the numbers. The CDC does not actually claim that 200K people were “killed” by Covid-19 during 2020, but that Covid-19 was “involved”. That is, they died with Covid-19, but Covid-19 was often not the cause of death. The CDC does not make the situation too clear, but it is the alarmist media that really misrepresents the numbers.
On their “provisional counts” webpage (updated 10/7/2020), they report about 199K deaths “involving” Covid-19. The CDC is following guidelines from WHO to count every death with Covid-19 as a Covid-19 death, if they have “compatible” secondary illnesses.
Under the column of “Deaths involving Covid-19 and pneumonia, excluding influenza” the total number is 89K. This is less than half the cases of deaths “involving” Covid-19, which the media promotes as the number of deaths due to Covid-19. It would seem that, if the patient did not develop the Covid-19 pneumonia, that it is very likely that Covid-19 did not kill that person.
Our yellow, politically-biased media presents these deaths as being due to Covid, when probably most of them aren’t. This has terrorized the public and made possible the Orwellian restrictions on personal liberty.
From what we have seen in the media, the expected progression of a fatal case is that you have trouble breathing, go to the hospital, develop Covid-19 pneumonia, are put on a ventilator and then you die. According to these numbers, most people counted do not die of the Wuhan pneumonia, but for some other reason and are counted as Covid-19 deaths. They just happen to test positive for the Covid bug.
Trump has withdrawn the US from WHO, because he believes the organization is corrupt. Why are we still following political, self-serving guidelines from WHO that greatly inflate the numbers? If he is re-elected, Trump should make it a priority to issue an executive order to stop CDC from following the WHO guidelines and to be more exact in their estimate of deaths due to Covid-19, not just mindlessly count every death with Covid-19 as a Covid-caused death.
The table of numbers of Covid-19 deaths is on page 2 of the document below.
WHO Guidelines state that anyone who dies with an active Covid-19 infection should be counted as a “Covid-19 death”. This is interpreted by many as a death due to Covid-19, when it is often a death with Covid-19.
The guidelines state only that, when the death is clearly due to physical trauma, such as a murder or vehicle accident, it should not be counted as a Covid-19 death.
Without autopsies, no one can really know for sure how may people died from Covid-19. However, an educated judgment could be made. Covid-19 could be informally ruled out as the cause of death in many cases, but the WHO instructions do not allow that.
Some countries may not follow WHO guidelines in identifying Covid-19 deaths. This can be part of the reason there is so much variation in the rates of deaths among different countries. They try to count more accurately the number of deaths due to Covid-19 or even cook the numbers to make their country look better. The mortality rate in different countries can also vary due to social factors.
Paragraph 2 taken from the WHO guidelines for counting Covid-19 Deaths.
The idea that 200K people have died due to Covid-19 appears to be a massive fraud.
COMPARISON TO THE FLU
The director of the CDC, Dr. Robert Redfield, told the Associated Press that there were 80,000 deaths due to the flu in 2017-2018. If this is true and using the standard that only Covid-19 deaths with Covid-19 pneumonia count, only slightly more people died of the Covid-19 pneumonia in the 2020 season (Oct 2019 -September 2020) than in the worst recent flu season on record. However, who would be surprised if Dr. Redfield exaggerates the number of flu deaths, also?
When making the comparison, keep in mind also that there are vaccines for the various strains of the flu, but no vaccine yet for Covid-19. Vaccines for Covid-19 are likely to be just as ineffective as flu vaccines, because corona viruses are similar to the flu virus, a rapidly mutating RNA virus.
The results of my antibody test for Covid-19 came back the same day that I heard from the media that Trump had tested positive for Covid-19.
The great majority of people only have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all when infected with Covid-19. Trump and his staff / family members who have contracted the virus are very likely to recover the same as I did. This high profile infection at the White House should help put a stop to the irrational panic surrounding the relatively mild Covid-19 pandemia.
I had it a few weeks earlier with mild symptoms, low-grade fever (just over 100F), headache, dry cough, body aches, fatigue and a little chest congestion. Most symptoms were gone in 3-4 days, but the fatigue lasted for about a week. I am 65 years old and am border-line obese, my BMI is about 30. I take medicine for slightly elevated blood pressure. Therefore, I would be considered to be marginally in the high risk group.
I have the flu shot every year, but have had the flu three times in the last two years. For me, all of these bouts with the flu were much worse than having Covid-19. The is no completely effective flu vaccine, because the flu is caused by a RNA virus, as with Covid-19.
I did not get the direct, nasal test for the Covid virus. I just stayed at home until the symptoms were gone. I did not want to be counted as an active case of Covid-19. The number of active cases is what California Governor Newsom uses to justify his overly harsh and irrational restrictions on businesses, government, schools and social activities.
So, I just waited a few weeks and had an antibody test, which does not cause a person to be listed as an active case. It just shows whether you have been previously infected and possess the antibodies, or not.
Now I should have some immunity to the corona virus that causes Covid-19. This corona virus is an RNA virus which is mutating all the time. So, I may not be immune to future mutated strains of the virus, but probably I will still have partial immunity to future strains of the same virus.
Progressive social engineers think that they can absolutely control everything that happens in human society, but they cannot. The virus is not going away, even if a vaccine is developed. It is just like mutated strains of the Spanish Flu virus are still with us after more than 100 years and 60-70 years after flu vaccines were developed. There will most probably not be a totally effective vaccine developed for a constantly-mutating RNA virus like this current corona virus, either.
The public will eventually assimilate this virus into their collective immune system, just as humans have all previous such viruses for thousands of years. But the only way it will be assimilated is for large numbers of people to be exposed to it. Those at low risk should be allowed to be exposed first, so we can all get on with our lives.
The process can only be slowed possibly by the Orwellian restrictions being forced on society, but the end result is going to be the same. It is not even clear that all of these measures are effective in significantly slowing the infections.
Meanwhile the economy and people’s livelihoods are being devastated. There are other harmful effects caused by the illogical restrictions, such as children not being educated as they should be.
Surveillance video captures vandals in Antifa garb painting Nazi Swastikas, inverted crosses, pentagrams, White Power, Black lives Matter (BLM) and even Biden 2020 on a Chaldean Catholic Church, whose congregation is primarily Christian refugees and immigrants from Iraq.
The church is St. Peter Chaldean Catholic Diocese in El Cajon, California. Black Lives Matter and antifa are severely retarded in their thinking processes. So, one can only speculate what their reasoning is for vandalizing a Middle Eastern immigrant/refugee church in this way.
I can only suppose they were thinking people would blame it on white supremacists and neo-Nazis trying to look like antifa/BLM/Biden supporters. These have to be some of the the dumbest terrorists and revolutionaries ever.
Here’s another video of the damage. After the video starts, click on full screen at the bottom to make it fit within your screen.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa come to Poway, Ca and greatly outnumbered by patriots and Trump supporters. Poway is called the “City in the Country” and is a town with traditional American values. The current Mayor, Steve Vaus, is a county western singer. It’s not a welcoming place for Black Lives Matter and antifa anarchists.
There were about 150 patriots versus 50-60 BLM and Antifa. Patriots started off occupying three street corners and BLM/Antifa had one. Some of the BLM were high school girls.
Antifa moves to take over one of the street corners from the patriots at 00:50. A group of patriots moves in to take the corner back.
There appears to be one black person present at this event among a couple hundred participants. She is on the patriot, Trump supporter side.
The antifa holding a shield (02:30) has a cane that was believed to have a sword in it. The handle was shaped like a small pick ax. The sheriff deputies say they cannot do anything about it until they see the concealed sword.
Antifa/BLM decide to go back to their corner at about 06:25. They briefly block traffic, but the deputies come and clear them from the street.
I asked one of the high school girls why there were no blacks at the Black Lives Matter event. She said they were afraid to come. The idea that a group of self-appointed whites have to speak for blacks is a racist idea, in itself.
At 11:30, some the antifa/BLM had crossed the street to the patriot side. Someone threw a smoke bomb. The deputies get in the middle and separate the two sides. Some in the BLM/Antifa crowd start to go home.
At 15:00 the antifa group leaves.
The women in the yellow shirts are the Wall of Moms, a group that was formed supposedly to protect antifa from being attacked.
DEC is “Defend East County”, a Facebook page started to coordinate responses to terroristic Black Lives Matter mobs.
Black Lives Matter terrorists in San Diego call for police stations to be burned to the ground, unless their demands are met. Of course BLM has already burned a couple of police stations down in other places, such as Portland and Minneapolis.
In this area, they have also burned to the ground two major banks and another major, historic building in La Mesa, a suburb of San Diego. They set fire to a City Hall annex in La Mesa. They intended to burn down the police station in La Mesa, during the riot there on May 30th. The police dispersed them with tear gas, bean bags and rubber bullets, before they are able to do it.
So, it’s not just an empty threat. Their terrorist threats have a great deal of credibility if they get a chance to carry them out.
When they torched La Mesa, the media and certain politicians claimed that it was not the BLM protesters who did the arson, but some mysterious group that no one knows and which appeared out of nowhere to “hijack” the peaceful BLM protest.
Their protests never have been really peaceful. They have generally all violated the law and trampled on the rights of other citizens. In case anyone still needs to be convinced, this video shows that the “protesters” are totally in agreement with wantonly burning down buildings, acts of terrorism.
In early September, a new fence was being built in the Jacumba Wilderness. It’s called the Jacumba Wilderness, because it is an isolated, often extremely rocky area which few people visit, except for hikers and off-roaders. The Jacumba Wilderness is about 11 miles wide. There has been no border barrier at all other than the ruggedness of the natural terrain.
Location of Skull Valley
There are a couple of valleys in the Wilderness, where they are building 30-foot bollard fence. This photo below is of the Skull Valley, named apparently for those who unsuccessfully try to cross in this area. The contractor has built a paved road into the area.

Below is video from last year of the Jacumba area. A crew is also staging near the town of Jacumba and will be expanding the existing 15-foot high border fence in that area. They are preparing to extend the fence up slopes in that area and probably will be replacing 0.7 miles of old landing mat fence near the small town of Jacumba.
