California America's Hate Crime Capital

California reported 1,094 incidents of hate crimes in 2017, making the state America’s Hate Crime Capital with over 500 more reported incidents than distant second place New York.

According to 2017 hate crime data, released earlier today by the FBI, the state of California reported almost 1,100 hate crimes in 2017, accounting for over 15 percent of the hate crimes committed in the country for the reporting period. New York had the second highest number of hate crimes at 552, with Washington placing in third at 510.

In its press release, the FBI explains that 7,175 criminal incidents classified as hate crimes were recorded in 2017. These are then broken down into categories, including vandalism, burglary, arson, intimidation, assault, rape, murder, and human trafficking.

Comparing by population, the states with the largest reporting area are not necessarily the states with the most hate crimes. While California has the largest reporting area with over 39 million Americans and 1,094 hate crimes, conservative Texas had only 190 with almost 30 million Americans covered in the reporting area.

While some Democrat-leaning states seem to have a higher number of hate crimes, higher numbers of hate crimes do not seem to be tied to political leanings. Democrat states California, New York, Washington, Massachusetts, and New Jersey all reported over 300 hate crimes, as did Republican-leaning Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.

The states with the lowest number of reported hate crimes were New Mexico and Arkansas with 7, Nevada with 5, Alaska and Wyoming with 4, and Mississippi with 1.

Only when considering the population in each reporting area does California lose its top position, surrendering it to nearby Washington, which has the highest number hate crimes reported per capita. By every other metric, the FBI’s 2017 Hate Crime Statistics paint California as America’s Hate Crime Capital.

Giuliani And Ellis Allege Considerable Voter Fraud in Arizona

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, legal counsel for President Donald J. Trump, along side of campaign witnesses and election observers, appeared in front of members of the state legislature of Arizona today alleging that a sizable amount of voter fraud occurred in the state while also pushing for Republican majority state House and Senate to hold a vote on the certification of the election.

Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, opened his remarks by saying that socialist-leaning politicians and officials have gradually eroded the personal liberties of Americans, noting that the allegedly fraudulent election process on November 3rd is an extension of that.

“We have been warned for twenty years that going to major mail-in ballots … will be fraught with tremendous fraud,” he continued, adding, “We were warned by former President Jimmy Carter.”

Citing the U.S. Constitution, Mr. Giuliani said, “You, the legislature of Arizona, have the plenary power to regulate the selection of electors in a presidential election,” he went on to argue that the Supreme Court has ruled that state Houses and Senates can reclaim the power to name electors.

“Your political career is worth losing to save the right to vote in America,” Giuliani told the GOP senators. “At times in our history, men and women stepped forward to defend Americans’ rights and liberties,” he remarked.

Jenna Ellis, another one of President Trump’s lawyers, said the Trump team isn’t asking the legislature to overturn the results of the election, but to rather, not certify allegedly fraudulent results.

One witness that was called by the Trump legal team was retired Col. Phil Waldron who asserted that the United States is a victim of “information warfare” due to the lack of security around voting machines in the State of Arizona.  The machines “can be hacked to manipulate votes,” Waldron commented to the members of the Arizona legislature.

Another witness for the Trump Team was a provisional ballot clerk. She testified that the state directed her to allow people to vote who were not registered to vote in Arizona.

The Trump legal team is aiming to hold similar hearings in Michigan as well as other battleground states.
