70-year old Los Angeles resident Ingrid Boon engaged a hit-and-run driver on a wild freeway chase through the streets. The end result: her StateFarm agent told her that her car insurance rates were going up, like many other people, because Los Angeles is a Sanctuary City.
“On November 23rd, I was leaving south LA and I was going home, traveling westward on Southcal. I had to stop at a stoplight,” Boon told Big League Politics. Boon has lived in Los Angeles since 1959, when her family moved there from the Netherlands. “I was hit from the rear left, this black car scraped all the way up my car. I was in the right lane closest to the curb, the guy was in the middle lane, he scraped the side of my car and made a right turn onto the street in front of me and he fled. I was stunned.”
“He was probably about in his early twenties,” Boon said, describing the driver as Mexican.
“I went after him like a bat out of Hell. I followed him for five blocks and cornered him in. I stopped him. I jumped out, and he said that he didn’t have a license. I asked if him if the car was insured, and he didn’t know, he got on the phone right away. He got out the information. He had insurance with Allstate for a year, registered in someone else’s name. He had no registration on the car. I called the police right away, they refused to come, because nobody was injured. In hindsight I should have just told them I was having a heart attack.”
“Some brothers were cheering me on and hoping I would punch this guy out,” Boon said.
“I called AllState on the spot and told them what had occurred, and they told me to keep them appraised of the situation. I went home, called my insurance company, and that’s when the BS all started.”
“His company AllState won’t pay for it, because the people insured in the car were not there, and he denies that he did that to my car. He said I changed lanes and he hit me. Why isn’t he cited for not having a driver’s license?”
“My cousin, who is my StateFarm agent, he said, “Los Angeles is crazy. Why do you think your rates have gone up? Because we are a sanctuary state.”
Ingrid Boon’s cousin did not provide comment for this report, but has experienced difficulties with other clients when it comes to getting illegal immigrants’ insurance companies to pay up after hit-and-run accidents.
“I’m an immigrant, I’m not an illegal, I learned the King’s English, California, we have 20,000 hit and runs in LA County annually. Every night on the news you will see 2 or 3 hit and runs where people have actually paid with their lives, it is absolutely crazy,” Boon said.
“This place has turned into a pit.”

Derrick Wilburn Explains Why Democrats Are So OLD
Derrick Wilburn of Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives (RMBC) explains in a stirring new piece shared on Facebook why the Democratic Party leaders are so old, while the Republican Party — adherent to its own term-limit laws — provides fresh faces in committee leadership.
Quick, name a nationally-prominent Republican who’s under 60 years of age. Those who pay even the least bit of attention to the political game can likely name Tim Scott (52), Marco Rubio (46), Mia Love, (48), Ted Cruz (46), Rand Paul (54), Trey Gowdy (51), Nikki Haley (46) among others.
In recent weeks as many as 7 Republicans who are current committee chairmen have announced their intentions to retire from Congress. Why? Many in the media are attempting to sell the narrative that its because they sense impending doom. Not true. Its’ because the Republican caucus term limits its chairmanships and these have reached the end of their terms.
A recent piece in TheHill.com spotlights a key difference between the way the Republican caucus & Democrat caucus in Washington D.C. operate, but a difference few in the USA are aware of: “The term-limit policy, put in place by former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) in 1994, was designed to keep the party from growing stale by regularly injecting new blood and fresh ideas into the mix.”
The GOP’s self-imposed rule is that legislators can not serve more than six years as the party’s top lawmaker on a committee. So once you’ve chaired a committee for six, you’re out and it someone else’s turn. And there’s no back-dooring it. Once you’re done, you’re done. You can’t return to committee member status for a year or two then run for Chair again. They can chair another committee, but not the same one again.
Democrats have no such rules and its at least a part of the reason there’s such a lack of youth in the Dem caucus leadership.
Apply the same question which opened this newsletter to today’s Democrat party leadership — *quick*, name a prominent Democrat, someone with presence on a national level — who’s under 60 years of age. Nancy Pelosi (78), Harry Reid (tho now retired most can name him, 80), Diane Feinstein (84), Chuck Schumer (68), Maxine Waters (80), Elizabeth Warren (70), Bernie Sanders (76 – tho technically an Independent not a Democrat) & the list goes on. All nationally prominent, all 70, 75, 80+ years of age.
Where’s the youth? Blame, at least in part, a lack of (self-imposed) term limits.
Democrats pay their dues early in their careers by carrying the water (i.e. providing necessary votes) and one day ascend to the desired position of Committee Chair, then stay there, …forever.
So what happens often times is younger Democrats win local elections, get to D.C., look up and realize that these old farts aren’t going anyplace! The old guard is from districts in which they can’t be un-elected; they’ve been their for 25 years; been chair for 14; are currently 72 years old meaning they’ll be Committee Chair for at least another 10 or 15 until they retire (if they ever do.) So the young bucks realize, “I’m frozen out.”
For example: Rep. John Conyers, who was forced to (finally) resign in December amid the #MeToo scandal, was born in 1929. Conyers helped draft the presidential articles of impeachment — against Richard Nixon! Conyers first won a seat on the Judiciary Committee in 1965. He first became Chair of the House Oversight Committee in 1989.
Imagine you’re a young lawyer, say 46 years old, a Democrat who just won an election and your dream has been to get to D.C. one day and chair a committee that’s chaired (when Dems are in power) by 70 y/o Elizabeth Warren. You know good & darn well that you’ve no hope of that chairmanship for another 10 or 15 years! What’s that do for your hopes for your future?
You’ve heard of, seen and know Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Tim Scott, and they’re nationally prominent because they get a shot at the top much earlier in their careers and that, at least in part, summarizes why pretty much the only Democrats you see on the nightly news speaking from a podium into a microphone at press conferences are old farts. Nancy Pelosi, Chuch Schumer. That’s just about it.
The situation caused the National Review to write a major piece which it titled “Old-Guard Democrats Refuse to Leave the Stage” sub-title “They’re keeping new leaders from emerging.”
Are term limits a good thing? That debate rages on. But the Capital Hill Republican party took the step of self-imposing them 25 years ago and it cannot be argued that the step has not created some very noticeable separation and differences between the parties.
