Antonio Sabato Jr. has announced that he will run for Congress in California’s 26th District, after being inspired by President Donald Trump’s successful campaign.

Sabato Jr. starred on General Hospital and Melrose Place, competed on Dancing With the Stars — and had an absolutely unforgettable modeling campaign for Calvin Klein in the 1990s.
He also spoke in support of Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last summer.
When asked for comment about his decision to run, Sabato Jr. told Big League Politics that he “shares the frustration many voters across the political spectrum who believe the government has failed them.”
Aside from his work in the entertainment industry, Sabato Jr. noted that he has spent his entire adult life raising a family, running successful small businesses and giving back to his community.
The district was historically Republican, but went to Rep. Julia Brownley, a Democrat, in 2012. The change in party support was due to redistricting, which changed the borders of the district and the makeup of the population. Current registration in the district is 42.6% Democratic, 30.4% Republican, Variety reports.
“Julia Brownley has been a professional politician most of her career and she has nothing to show for it,” Sabato Jr. told BLP.
Issues that Sabato Jr. said he is very passionate about addressing include meaningful changes to meet the needs of our veterans, pursuing results oriented solutions for substance abuse, and comprehensive immigration reform.
During his speech at the RNC, Sabato Jr. stated that Trump shared his beliefs to get the country back on track, which is why he endorsed him despite having kept his political beliefs private for so long.
“In the past eight years, failed policies have caused our country to deteriorate — our rights have been trampled and our security threatened. We are weaker by almost every measure. We are on the wrong path. It is clear even to someone who was not even born here,” Sabato Jr. said at the RNC of the Obama administration.
Sabato Jr. immigrated to the United States — legally — from Rome, Italy, in 1985.
“I followed all the rules and finally became a naturalized citizen in 1996. Others who want to come to the US to live and work should follow the same rules. We are a nation of laws for a reason — there should be no shortcuts to those who do not want to pay or wait,” he added.
From the Czech Republic, Sabato Jr.’s mother had lived under Communist rule. In his speech, he explained that he knows what socialism looks like, and it isn’t something that he wants his children to have to go through.
“Having secure borders, protecting our citizens — none of this is hateful — it is the responsibility of the government, and it is the right thing to do,” he continued.
Following his speech endorsing Trump, Sabato Jr. said that he was dropped from several Hollywood projects that he had lined up prior to the event.
Sabato Jr. told Big League Politics that he “looks forward to sharing his vision with the voters of California’s 26th Congressional District.”
Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program
South Africa-style land redistribution?
Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.
Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.
— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) November 24, 2020
The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.
An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.
The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.”
If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.
Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.
The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
