GOP Congressional Candidate Kimberlin Brown Pelzer 😈 Takes the Low Road

By Came In On Saturdays | April 16, 2018 at 02:16 PM EDT

GOP “Young Gun” Congressional Candidate Kimberlin Brown Pelzer—She Shoots Herself With Planted Questions and Extremist Pals   

      The GOP will do anything and everything to win elections from the top of the ticket on down. We all know about Demagogue Donald’s 2016 campaign of fake news and his gang’s probable collusion with Putin’s Russia.  Down-ticket “Team Red” 2018 midterm candidates for House and Senate races are no better. Arizona GOP Cong. Martha McSally, who is running for a Senate seat, held a Facebook Live Event. At that event, she posted a comment from her own account praising herself for “great video quality,” and adding, “thank you for your service (shareblue.com, Willis, 4/10/18).” McSally is not the only GOPer who was recently caught planting her own comments to look good. GOPer Kimberlin Brown Pelzer, running for a congressional seat in CA, was caught doing a similar stunt. As part of a Facebook Live Q&A, where candidates are supposed to be taking questions from voters, a question about “sanctuary cities” from Brown Pelzer’s personal account was added/planted into the mix of questions (See shareblue.com, Willis, Metz, “Desert Sun,” 4/06/18). “Sanctuary cities,” where illegal immigrants can not be apprehended by state or federal authorities for deportation, constitute a central issue in the immigration debate, especially for the GOP’s hard-right xenophobic base (See Metz, “Desert Sun”). Who is Kimberlin Brown Pelzer?

           On 10/10/2017, GOPer Kimberlin Brown Pelzer (56) announced she was running for CA’s 36th Congressional District (CD) in 2018.  She wants to defeat that district’s current Congressman, Democrat Raul Ruiz (46) who is running for his 4th term (cactushugs.com, Dolan, 10/10/17, 115th Congress At Your Fingertips). The present CA 36th CD covers eastern Riverside County. On its western side, the 36th takes in Banning and Beaumont and stretches all the way east to Blythe at the AZ border. The 36th includes the cities of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Indio, Hemet, and San Jacinto. This CD also includes Coachella and Rancho Mirage. Agriculture, tourism, and alternate energy sources constitute this area’s economic pillars (CQ & Barone 14 Political Almanacs). The 36th contains the Coachella Valley which produces 95% of the dates eaten in the U.S. The Coachella Valley’s fertile farmland relies on irrigation from the western waters of the Colorado River and seasonal migrant workers. Palm Springs, once the winter resort of the stars, has now become popular with rich retirees and gay couples. Former Presidents Eisenhower and Ford retired to this desert area. Several Native American reservations are in the 36th and have tribal casinos in the Palm Springs area. About 1/3 of the jobs in Palm Springs, Cathedral City, and Palm Desert are provided by hospitality and retail sectors. With its high desert sands, the Joshua Tree National Park is a tourist spot. The alternative-energy industry is growing. The western edge of Palm Springs is dotted with windmills, and huge solar projects are under way in the desert region to the east (CQ 14).

           About 300,000 people live in the 36th.  Hispanic residents make up 48% of the 36th’s population barely edging out whites.  CA’s non-partisan redistricting commission, which drew the boundaries of the 36th after the 2010 census, wanted to keep the retirement and Indian lands together. The result is a strongly competitive swing district. The latest 4/07/2017 Cook Partisan Voting Index (PVI) gives the 36th a D+2 score. Democrats have a narrow 6% voter registration edge. The GOP voters in the 36th are not overwhelmingly hard-right conservative. Obama carried the 36th by a 4% margin in 2008 and by 3% in 2012. In 2016, Hillary beat Donald by 9%, 52%-43% (CQ 14, pe.com, Horseman, 1/30/18).   

           Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, Raul Ruiz was adopted by migrant farmworker relatives as a baby and raised in Coachella. From a very young age, he wanted to become a doctor. A high-achieving high school student, Ruiz went door-to-door in Coachella with a handmade contract to ask neighbors and local businesses to contribute to his college tuition. He raised almost $2,000. After graduating UCLA magna cum laude in 1990, he attended Harvard Medical School. He became the first Latino to receive three graduate degrees from Harvard, his M.D. and master’s degrees in public policy and public health (Barone & CQ 14, voxxi.com). While at Harvard, Ruiz spent almost a year in Chiapas, Mexico with a health and social organization. He told “The Desert Sun” newspaper that that experience showed him the “tremendous nature of poverty and how real policies can actually affect human lives (Barone, 14).” After graduating Harvard, Ruiz worked in Mexico, El Salvador, and Serbia. He then took a job as an emergency room physician at the non-profit Eisenhower Medical Center in Coachella Valley. In 2011, Ruiz became senior associate dean at the University of California Riverside’s Medical School (voxxi.com, washingtontimes.com, 1/10/13). In 2012, he received an award from the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division for aiding the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake (voxii.com).

          In 2012, in his first run for public office, he ran against incumbent Mary Bono Mack. Bono Mack first won this seat in 1998, after her husband, singer Sonny Bono’s, death. Ruiz’s campaign was considered a long-shot. However, Bono Mack was facing her first Hispanic challenger. Ruiz had a demographic advantage in this newly redrawn district where Latinos then had almost 40% of the voters. He ran as a “public servant and physician, dedicated to serving the community.” In the general election, the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) gave Ruiz substantial support and former Pres. Bill Clinton endorsed him (KESQ, 10/23/12). GOP PACS spent lots of money on Bono. Bono attacked Ruiz for being in protest demonstrations while at Harvard. GOP ads called Ruiz a “tool” of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and a supporter of Obamacare. In an upset victory, Ruiz won by a 6% margin, 53%-47%. In 2014, a big GOP year, “Team Red” thought freshman Ruiz was vulnerable. This time, he beat his opponent by 8 points. In 2016, Ruiz won his third term by a 24.2% margin (U.S. House of Reps. Elections, 2012, 2014, 2016).

          In the House, Cong. Ruiz sat on the Natural Resources and Veterans’ Affairs Committees and currently sits on the key Energy and Commerce Committee (CQ 14, !15th Cong. At Your Fingertips). In this swingy district, he has voted with “Team Blue” 90.8% of the time (projects.prorepublica.org). He has been labeled a Populist-Leaning Liberal (on theissues.com). He has basement ratings from the NRA as well as anti-immigration groups (votesmart.org). In 2016, after the Pulse nightclub Orlando, FL massacre, Ruiz joined dozens of his Democratic colleagues as part of a House sit-down to force a vote on gun control legislation including universal background checks (desertsun.com, 6/22/16). He has stated his support for Obamacare and voted against its repeal (thehill.com, Baker, 6/11/13, clerkhouse.gov). He is strongly pro-choice. He voted against an act to ban abortions that take place 20 or more weeks after fertilization(nytimes.com). He is for protecting Medicare and Social Security (ruizhouse.gov).

                 Under CA law, the 6/05/2018 primary will send the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, to the 11/06/2018 general election.  Although five GOPers have filed to run against Ruiz, Kimberlin Brown Pelzer looks like the GOP front-runner who will face Cong. Ruiz in the 11/2018 election. Ruiz has no Dem. opponents. Brown Pelzer, because of her fundraising ability, has been named, along with 15 other GOP congressional hopefuls to the “Young Guns” program.  Being a GOP “Young Gun” boosts her candidacy. It gives her the opportunity to receive more financial national GOP aid, more help from GOP- leaning groups  such as the Koch Bros., and assistance from Republican campaign consultants. Brown Pelzer has been endorsed by former H.W. Bush Chief of Staff and ex-NH Gov. John Sununu, outgoing Fullerton GOP Cong. Ed Royce, and the Riverside County Republican Party (See pe.com, Horseman, 1/30/18, kimberlinforcongress.com). Hayward, CA native Brown Pelzer is best known for her soap opera acting career. She portrayed Sheila Carter on “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” off-and-on from 1992-2006. She built several businesses with her husband including a sports fishing and marina rental business and an avocado farm. She owns and personally operates a design company (cactushugs.com, Dolan, 10/10/17, kimberlinforcongress.com). Brown Pelzer entered the political spotlight by speaking in prime time at the 2016 GOP National Convention that nominated Donald (cactushugs.com, kimberlinforcongress.com). A big Trump supporter, she proudly attended his inauguration (See cactushugs.com). Brown Pelzer believes that the 36th CD “has not been effectively represented” by Cong. Ruiz. She stated that “hard-working people across the district want to see conservative leadership in Washington (pe.com, Horseman, 1/30/18).”

        In addition to burnishing her record by trying to plant her own questions among regular voters, Brown Pelzer pals around with some controversial extremist characters. Photos posted to her Instagram from the GOP 2016 Convention included one posing with former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Flynn is at the center of multiple ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election (cactushugs.com, 10/10/17).

    Besides Flynn, Brown Pelzer is a fan of former Deputy Assistant to Trump, Sebastian Gorka, one of Donald’s top anti-terrorist “experts.” Gorka, a native of England, whose family came from Hungary, was the fellow who wore a Vitezi Rend medal on his suits. Vitezi Rend was a Hungarian far right group that the U.S. State Dept. labeled as being under control of Nazi Germany during WWII. Members of this group helped Nazis in 1944 Hungary round up Jews and send them to the Auschwitz concentration/extermination camp. Gorka was accused of taking an oath of loyalty to this group. He denied that, but said he wore this medal in honor of his father’s “struggle” against totalitarianism. In any event, Gorka, for years, has had close ties and worked with far-right openly racist and anti-Semitic Hungarian groups (See Nichols, “Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse,” “The Forward”). On 4/08/2018, Gorka came to address GOPers at the Unite the Inland Empire Conservative Conference about the 2018 midterms. Brown Pelzer was “excited” to see Gorka. She wanted to hear what Gorka would say about “sanctuary cities (Metz, “Desert Sun,” 4/06/18).” Prior to his speech, Brown Pelzer met with Gorka and called this meeting with him “wonderful (desertsun.com, Metz, 4/08/18).” Brown Pelzer also spoke at this gathering (desertsun.com).

           Kurt Bardella, a former spokesperson to retiring right-wing GOP Cong. Darrell Issa and former moderate GOP ME Sen. Olympia Snowe, left the GOP. He became a Democrat after Trump’s rise and the GOP’s backing of AL sexual predator Roy Moore (USA Today, Bardella, 12/10/17). Bardella aptly stated, “Anyone who wants to be seen with extremists who vocalize these views is the reason the Republican Party is an endangered species in California (desertsun.com, Metz).” Yes, the GOP, with its extremist platform and extremist personalities from Trump on down, is an “endangered species” in CA and many other places in the U.S. 
Ruiz has a big political war chest and has won his previous elections easily. However, elections are not won by theorizing pundits. They are won by strong turn out on the ground. Speaker Ryan and 38 other GOPers are retiring rather than running again in 2018. The 36th CD remains a competitive district. The GOP still plans to challenge Ruiz, because it believes that Democratic voters will not turn out in midterms while the “Red” base will (See Wildermuth, sfchronicle.com, 2/28/18). On 11/06/2018, Democrats in the CA 36th and the rest of the country must prove the GOP wrong by voting in droves. Ruiz must be re-elected and the House taken back. We must reject Trump 🦀 and Brown Pelzer’s 👹 extremism.

What happens if the Atlantic Meridional Overturning (AMOC) slows down, or even stops?   


Paul Beckwith

Published on Apr 17, 2018

What happens if the Atlantic Meridional Overturning (AMOC) slows down, or even stops? The former has happened, and if the latter occurs there will be global chaos. How close are we to reaching the threshold for a “rewriting” of global ocean circulation? If it occurs, will it be permanent, for at least hundreds of years? How much will already extreme weather change, and how much will global food supply be impacted?

Ola To Add 10,000 Electric ⚡ 3-Wheelers To Fleet Over Next 12 Months ✨

April 17th, 2018 by James Ayre

Despite the current and reportedly ongoing problems with its electric vehicle pilot in Nagpur, the India-based on-demand taxi service Ola is now planning to add a further 10,000 electric vehicles — 3-wheelers this time — to its fleet over the next 12 months.


The deployment will be made with backing from the investment group SoftBank Group, and represent part of the company’s plans to possess an electric vehicle (EV) fleet of at least 1 million by the year 2021.

In the press release on the matter, the firm noted that coordination with various state governments was planned for the deployment (as well as battery and auto manufacturers, of course).

“From cycle rickshaws to ‘shuttles’ and last-mile transport, three-wheelers continue to be a dominant form of daily transit for many people across the nation,” Ola stated. “Building on the pioneering EV pilot by the company in Nagpur, Ola believes electrification can improve outcomes for drivers, customers, and its business model.”


With regard to the EV pilot project in Nagpur, as we reported previously, a notable portion of the drivers of the EVs in question are apparently looking to return their cars and replace them with petrol/gasoline powered options again, due to overly long waiting times at fast-charging stations. Company reps have commented, though, that lessons have been learned…

“The EV (electric vehicle) program in Nagpur has provided Ola with significant insights into effectively managing vehicles, batteries, and operations,” a statement read. The company is now reportedly working to improve the charging situation.




Reuters provides more: “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government is determined to promote electric vehicle use, starting with public transport and taxis, to combat rising pollution, and reduce the nation’s dependence on imported oil. India has also set a target to make all new vehicles electric by 2030.

“Ola, which operates in 110 Indian cities and has over a million driver partners, said the electric 3-wheelers will be introduced in 3 cities but did not name them. Three-wheelers are commonly used, especially in smaller cities, but electric variants were introduced only a couple of years ago.

“Ola did not say which manufacturers would provide the 3-wheelers or whether it would be the company making the purchases or whether the vehicles would be driver-owned. It also did not provide details of when it planned to introduce electric cars.”

Presumably, then, that means that specifics have yet to be firmly decided upon on those counts.

Here’s Ola’s closing paragraph in this week’s press release:

Quote
“Ola is in discussion with several state governments to create an appropriate policy environment to deploy electric three wheelers.  The company is also talking to OEM partners and EV innovators globally to bring vehicles on the road in a planned and phased manner.  With the addition of 10,000 vehicles across three cities this year, Ola is quickly set to become one of the largest EV fleet operators in the world.”

As the Republican Roof Caves In, Paul Ryan 😈 Hits the Road

Saturday, April 14, 2018

By William Rivers Pitt, Truthout | Op-Ed

SNIPPET:

What began two Novembers ago as an all-encompassing Republican victory, a takeover of two branches with a stranglehold on the third, has devolved into a chaotic stampede to avoid the looming and seemingly insurmountable "Blue Wave" to come. "This is the Watergate pattern writ large," writes Rick Wilson for The Daily Beast. "In 1973, Republicans were screaming that the investigation was nothing but a Fake News Witch Hunt. They lost 49 House seats and eight Senate seats in 1974, two months after Nixon resigned."

I'm disappointed as well, but restricting supply is largely irrelevant.

Reducing demand is the real fight, and Trudeau leads on that.

The carbon tax is vastly more important.

Yes, but I can't stand political weasels. He has not loyalty to anything, not his own words, and I don't believe he has only real loyalty to the environment.

Coal, oil pipelines, those are our biggest problems. He's not helping.

I doubt it will have any effect on oil prices. Meanwhile, GW dries the forest and the fires burned the oil sands region. Whats it going to take?

The problem is Catastrophic Climate Change. Corrupt bought and paid for puppets like Trudeau are just one symptom. As long as the cost of fossil fuels is kept artificially low with welfare queen subsidies and other forms of corrupt profit over planet practices, the demand destruction that a carbon tax theoretically is supposed to obtain, will not materialize. A carbon tax is an empty gesture unless it is coupled with a policy to use all the subsidy money, hitherto given to the fossil fuel industry, totally to fund Renewable Energy Technologies.

As the article above stated, " As a reminder here, atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations are continuing to rise at a rapid clip — due to the fact that fossil fuel usage remains right around all-time highs. If anthropogenic climate weirding and warming is to be limited to any real degree, then oil use will have to fall drastically within just the next few years."

We are basically out of time for half measures. There is no way whatsoever that we can match the reduction required by the Paris Agreement any more (see below).

Canada’s Prime Minister 🐒: We’ll Offer Aid To Ensure That Kinder Morgan 🦕 Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline Expansion Gets Built

April 16th, 2018 by James Ayre

The Kinder Morgan Canada Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion project will go ahead even if the federal government has to offer financial aid, despite strong resistance from the government of British Columbia and activists there, according to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The comments follow comments from Kinder Morgan Canada execs that the firm may end up walking away from the project if greater clarity isn’t provided about the legal path forward — that being a reference to efforts by the government of the province of British Columbia to block the C$7.4 billion project on environmental grounds.

To explain that a bit more, the idea of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion project is to increase the capacity of the pipeline in question (3 times over), and thereby improve its selling position. As it stands, Canada is mostly dependent upon the USA as an oil buyer because of a lack of pipeline capacity to the Pacific coast — and thus sells much of its crude oil at a discount as compared to the benchmark CLc1. (Much of Canada’s oil is extracted in the inland province of Alberta.)

“Construction will go ahead,” stated Trudeau. “I have instructed the minister of finance to initiate formal financial discussions with Kinder Morgan, the result of which will be to remove the uncertainty overhanging the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.”

He then referred to the pipeline expansion as “a vital strategic interest to Canada.”

Trudeau also obliquely referenced earlier talk of the federal government taking a stake in the expansion project (in order to support it), by noting that “we are actively pursuing legislative options that will assert and reinforce the government of Canada’s jurisdiction in this matter.”

The above comments were made to reporters following an emergency summit with the premiers of Alberta and British Columbia that Trudeau took part in.

So, why is the Canadian government now seemingly pursuing what could be considered to be a “bailout” for an oil giant? Reportedly due to: worries that already declining foreign investment levels could fall even further if the expansion project doesn’t go through, and strong pressure from the connected business community.

Informally, I’ll also speculate here that officials representing China have told Canada’s federal government to make sure that the expansion happens. Obviously, I can’t prove such speculation, but “foreign investment” when it comes to Canada largely refers to China, and how much autonomy does Canada even have at this point?

The reality is that Canada is pretty much dependent on foreign investment and on its oil industry for the maintenance of its current way of life. Without both, the country is facing a steep decline in its average standard of living.

Reuters provides a bit more on the immediate situation: “Although Trudeau’s Liberal government could invoke emergency powers to ensure the project goes ahead, that would most likely anger voters in British Columbia and cost the Liberals support in a federal election in October 2019.

“Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, who also attended the talks in Ottawa, said she was convinced the expansion would be built if the financial assistance deal could be worked out. … British Columbia Premier John Horgan said after the meeting he had not changed his position that the risks of a spill from the pipeline were too great.

“Horgan wants Ottawa to refer the matter to the Supreme Court but the Liberals are not interested, saying it is already clear the federal government has jurisdiction over the project. Horgan also said he would ask the courts in British Columbia to make clear how much powers the province had to protect the provincial environment. Federal officials complain this is a time-wasting tactic.”

On that note, some 200+ protestors have been arrested by police at Trans Mountain facilities in British Columbia over the last few months, despite official opposition to the expansion project. That, taken together with the current stalemate between the provincial government and the federal one, brings to clear contrast just how large the cultural differences are between the west and east coasts of Canada.

As a reminder here, atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations are continuing to rise at a rapid clip — due to the fact that fossil fuel usage remains right around all-time highs. If anthropogenic climate weirding and warming is to be limited to any real degree, then oil use will have to fall drastically within just the next few years.

AMOC Shutdown Potential and Implications


Climate State

Published on Sep 18, 2016

Climate scientists Mark Serreze, Michael Mann, and James Hansen commenting on the potential for a shutdown of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), in a historical perspective, based on observations, as well as on the implications.


Ocean Currents Disruption: Slower and Wavier


Paul Beckwith

Published on Apr 14, 2018

Cutting edge science finds ocean currents slowing down. We all know the equator is warm and poles are cold. This temperature difference causes heat flow from the equator to poles.

As the Arctic warms like crazy, heat flow there slows, thus jet streams slow and are wavier; the same slowing and waviness increase happens with ocean currents.

If sluggish ocean currents (slowing of Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation - AMOC) halt or redistribute, we are in for a heap of chaotic climate change mayhem.

How close are we to shutdown? Stay tuned to my videos and donate to http://paulbeckwith
