“Where’s the Money?”: California Reparations Board Confronted to Make Good on Years of Reparation Rhetoric

  1. I don’t have the numbers handy, but I believe the amount the pro reparations folks are seeking far exceeds the budget of the state of California. In other words, it can’t be done. It would bankrupt the state. Not only that, but once you start redressing past wrongs, where do you stop? What about all the Japanese shamefully interned in World War 2? What about wrongs perpetrated against other minorities?

  2. We know that California discriminated against the Chinese during the 19th Century. Some California vitiates have even issued formal apologies for their acts. Why are descendants of these Chinese people being considered for reparations?

  3. You are brilliant law scholar. You should the next AG under President Trumps next administration. Thanks for all you do for our nation.

  4. When did they repeal the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment?

  5. It’s about time that LeBron James and Oprah Winfrey get their fair share.

    In case you were wondering:

    1. LeBron’s California pad:
    “The bedroom has a regal feel thanks to the massive bed and the furry decor. But the best feature may be the sunny sitting area with the curvy bean sofa and tree stump tables flanked by oversized artwork.”

    2. Not to be outdone, here’s Oprah’s Montecito pied-a-terre. She calls it the Promised Land:

    “And why is it named The Promised Land? During a recorded tour of her main house, Oprah filled us in on the name by saying ‘The Promised Land, because Dr. King said he would not get to the promised land but one day we might. And so that’s why I called it that… because I think it’s a fulfillment of the promise that Dr. King spoke of.’ Wise words from the media mogul herself.”

  6. Clown world. Wall Street greed levels. Make a fraud payout then repatriate immediately for the Civil War damage and 600k plus dead Americans and half burned nation. Oops! They owe. Did the math.

    1. It has been said that President Lincoln ( elected with approximately 30% of the popular vote) jailed hundreds of publishers and reporters in violation of the First Amendment to quash opposition to the war he wanted.


    Enforce the law. The Supreme Court of 2022 recently acted retroactively by 50 years to prove and correct the corruption of the Supreme Court 1973 by striking down the claim of constitutional abortion, appropriately returning the issue to the States. The Supreme Court of 2023 must now act retroactively by 150 years to correct the course of law and enforce extant immigration law of January 1, 1863. The Naturalization Act of 1802 was in full force and effect requiring immigrants to be “…free white person(s)….” The status of freed slaves changed from that of “property” to “illegal alien.” Freed slaves must have been summarily and compassionately repatriated which is intuitive and in complete alignment with the typical demand of abductees who have obtained their freedom. It was egregious criminal dereliction for the government to fail to enforce the law in a society of laws.

    1. That does not apply to any black person living in this country today as there are no freed slaves alive. You are citizens with the same rights as anyone else. You are free to even get a job and earn your money like everyone else.

  8. Settle down now, everything is going to be OK, there is plenty of Dollars for Everybody (U.S. Citizens).

    Section 1 Full Faith and Credit Clause:
    Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.

    Everyone will get what’s coming to them. The law requires that everyone have equal opportunities regardless of; race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or transgender status), age (over 40), disability, genetic information, retaliation for engaging in Equal Opportunity activities.

    If your reparation is not immediately available it will be covered by the FDIC insurance fund which is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.

  9. I have read of an allegation that the first enslaved class to be introduced into the Colonies were the Irish.
    If so, I will settle only for the $223 thousand that the Newsom Reparations Task Force recommends.
    After all, I don’t want anyone to get the mistaken idea that I’m “greedy!”

    1. Oh Denny boy some of your ancestors must have lost their lives defending this nation so if anyone qualifies for reparations it should be you. Stay vigilant. The pipes the pipes are blowing.

    2. The Israelite slaves were out of Egypt before the ink was dry on their release papers.

      But then, they had the capacity, acumen, ambition, self-esteem and gumption sufficient to the task.

      1. There were no Jewish slaves in Egypt. Archaeologists have all agreed on that. So, let’s get this right.

        Around 1200 B.C., the early Hebrews left Egypt after failing to pay their back taxes to the Egyptian Government. Carbon dated documents were discovered by the Egyptian Government around 1997 that verified that. No slavery existed in Egypt.

        The Jews, like everyone else, were given 3 options:

        #1) . Pay the back taxes.
        #2) . Go to jail.
        #3) . Work for the Pharaoh.

        The Jewish people didn’t like any of those options and decided to leave Egypt. After leaving Egypt, they invaded Canaan and committed the world’s first recorded Holocaust in the history of mankind. The Palestinians (Philistine peoples) were part of the 7-9 tribes that made up Canaan. They are mentioned 4 times in the Bible. In the book of Judges, it mentions how the Palestinians tried to repel the advancing Jewish forces from Egypt.

        In a book by Schlomo Zand (How and When Were the Jewish People Invented) DNA has proven that the Palestinians are not only descendants of the Canaanites but, are actually the only Israelites in the region because they intermarried with the Jewish invaders thousands of years ago.

        None of the Jewish people living in occupied Palestine are even remotely connected to Abraham or Jacob, and thus, are not Israelites.

        In Genesis 24:7, Abraham promised that land to those who were from his “seed”. The Palestinians qualify. The Jewish people in Israel (occupied Palestine) do NOT qualify.

        So, thousands of years later after invading Canaan and Philistia (Palestine), in 1896, Theodor Herzl, funded by Baron Edmond James de Rothschild, who wanted to remain anonymous, hatched the idea of forming Israel on land that did not belong to them. Herzl brought his idea to the Swiss Congress in 1897.

        The million dollar question.

        How do you get millions of Jewish people to leave their comfortable homes in Europe and move to a desert-like environment that you created for them?

        The Rothschild family of bankers then financed WWI and WWII to achieve their goal. During the Industrial Revolution of the late 1880s, England wanted to limit the growing power of Germany so, they actually worked with the Rothschild banking family.

        They needed the power of the U.S.A. to win both wars. There was a problem though. The United States had the Monroe Doctrine which prevented it from entering into wars with Europe.

        In order for the Zionists to bring their dream of Israel to fruition, they needed to get the United States on board with their plan. President Woodrow Wilson was set up to cheat on his wife, most likely by the bankers, who then blackmailed him into allowing the Federal Reserve Bank into this country. While Congress was out on their Christmas break in 1913, Wilson signed a document allowing the Federal Reserve Bank to establish itself here.

        Because of that, the Zionists could guarantee the United State’s involvement in both WWI and WWII thus ensuring their victory.

        The Zionists went into Palestine in 1917 and murdered over 11,000 Palestinians in cold blood just as a sign of force.

        President Kennedy wasn’t murdered because he wanted to end the Federal Reserve Bank. Kennedy was murdered because he tried to keep Israel from having a nuclear bomb. Israel has threatened to use its nuclear weapons against Europe if Israel fails.

        It is known as the Samson Option.

        In essence, Europe is being blackmailed into supporting Israel.

        Keep in mind that Adolf Hitler’s political career was financed by the Rothschild Federal Reserve Bank of New York City.


        Hitler’s mother had an affair with Solomon Rothschild and it is generally agreed upon that Adolf Hitler was the result. It was Hitler who signed an agreement with the top Jewish leaders in Germany to bring the Jews living in Europe to Palestine. It was known as the HAVAARA Agreement.

        Because of Herzl and Rothschild’s vision to form Israel on someone else’s land, over 100 MILLION (99% Christian) innocent men, women, and children were erased from the face of the earth. To top it off, between 271,000 and 275,000 Jewish people were sacrificed — all to make a prophesy come true.

        From where did the 6 million figure come?

        Jewish prophecies in the Torah require that 6 million Jews must “vanish” before the state of Israel can be formed. “You shall return minus 6 million.” — “The Holocaust Dogma of Judaism”, Cosmo Publishing, Washington 1995, page 3.

        60 Million non-Jews died fighting WWII alone.

    3. The Irish were not enslaved,this myth has to die. Some were indentured servants who chose to do that

      1. If my history is correct the “white slaves” death rate was higher than the “black slave” death rate. The reason given was that the “black slaves” cost money.

      2. Lets see, they were abducted by the government, put in chains, thrown into ships, transported across the ocean against their will,
        and forced to work or die.

        That is not your idea of slavery ?

        I would further note that even in Ireland, they were bonded to the land. They were Serf’s which is essentially slavery. They were not free to go where they pleased. They had to do as the owner requested or Die.


        1. “They”. They are not alive today. The slave owners aren’t either. Why should millions of Americans work for reparations when they never had slaves? MILLIONS of white people are poor. No one helps them. Why should those who are pushing for reparations be any different?

          1. I agree. We should not have to re-litigate every failure in judgement all the way back to Cain and Able.

            But the FACTS are that the conditions of human existance for over 300K years have been miserable. A decent life has always been RARE, and a decent life for most is something that is incredibly modern.

            Most humans for most of mans existance would have picked the Chattel slavery of the 18th century over horrible living and horrible death – likely before the age of 30. That was the norm for 300K years.

            Black slavery was both bad and immoral. It is but one of many bad immoral aspects of much of human existance.

            Trying to debate Whether Blacks from Africa or the Irish who preceded them had it worse is a tiny academic question.

            There were differences – Relatively quickly the law made the whote children of white slaves in the Caribbean Free Persons.
            And the respons of white slave owners was to deliberately breed – white slaves with black slaves to get mulatto children who would still be slaves.

            You can view that however you please – but it is still clear that – if someone can FORCE you to have children – you are a SLAVE.

            The Vikings raided the British Isles and the west coast of Europe for over a century – taking slaves – many of whom were transported to the mideast.

            As the muslim empires expanded into europe slaves were sent back to the mideast. There were likely more white slaves sent to the mideast than backs sent to the new world. During the heyday of african slavery – as many blacks were sent to the mideast as to the new world.
            Why aren’t there millions of blacks in the mideast today – because most slaves sent to the mideast were males, and they were castrated first.

            Life in the past Sucked. Even John D. Rockefeller could not prevent a nephew from dying from a childhood disease we have eradicated.

            Most londoners in the 19th century used their own $hit to heat and cook with.

            Most of those demanding reparations could not have survived as a plantation owner 3 centuries ago.
