“Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” -- Alexis de Tocqueville
Welcome to Gavin Newsom’s California, a free-for-all crime spree. In one of the latest crime sprees, 4 females looted a Nike store in Irvine, California this past Thursday. The thieves grabbed $3,000 in merchandise and calmly walked out of the store.
They are said to be part of an organized crime syndicate targeting retail stores in Orange County and San Diego County, which included Nike in San Clemente and Carlsbad for a three-store total of $11,000.
All 4 suspects were captured later and taken into custody.
Former President Donald Trump is taking a unique approach to handling a judgment against his company by publicly attacking the Judge who ruled against him.
On Tuesday of last week, Judge Arthur Engoron of the Supreme Court 1st Judicial District in New York ruled that Trump and his company committed fraud in a significant development in the civil case of New York Attorney General Letitia James. That suit seeks, among other things, to impose a $250 million penalty on Trump and his company.
The decision has raised serious questions about what this means practically for the Trump Organization. Without a business certificate, they can no longer operate in the state of New York.
Trump announced on social media he would go to court on Monday to “fight for my name and reputation against a corrupt and racist Attorney General, Letitia James. Trump wrote:
I’m going to Court tomorrow morning to fight for my name and reputation against a corrupt and racist Attorney General, Letitia James, who campaigned on “getting Trump,” and a Trump Hating Judge who is unfair, unhinged, and vicious in his PURSUIT of me. He values Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, at 18 Million Dollars, when it is worth 50 to 100 times that amount. His valuations are FRAUDULENT in pursuit of Election Interference, and worse. THIS WHOLE CASE IS A SHAM!!! See you in Court – Monday morning.
