The NP hasn't "thrived" through the NLRB litigation, as foofighter stated - Windy & Art took a big hit, 9 or 10 %, I recall, a record drop during a period of declining print news readership, and I assume Peter Lance's series of articles was a response. I don't read election predictions and I vote based on my personal knowledge and research rather than on anyone's endorsements, so I didn't include those facts in my assessment. I've also read the NP for 40 years. I don't recall any mention of the eight attempts by DA Tom Sneddon to deplete various residents' financial resources to the extent that the county could acquire their property through adverse possession. Sneddon repeatedly used malicious litigation as an adverse possession tool, filing numerous ridiculous charges against several residents, costing them 10's or hundreds of thousands in legal expenses, and which were dismissed with extremely negative comments about Sneddon by presiding judges. In addition, I recall no mention of Sneddon's similar malicious litigation against Gary Danby, his opponent in the DA race, whose standing as a candidate, as well as his law career, were destroyed by Sneddon. I don't recall the NP acknowledging County Counsel Jake Stoddard's refusal to file the charges Danby requested against Sneddon based on Sneddon's malicious litigation. I also have no memory of the NP ever acknowledging violations of the FFPA or any conflicts of interest against local elected officials, although the McCaw NP did publish misstatements of AG Jerry Brown's guidelines for CA's medical cannabis program and the County Grand Jury report that included as its basis SB city staff's replacement of Brown's statement that patients should have access to medicine with no illegal diversion and that law enforcement should understand the lawwith a statement that law enforcement should investigate, arrest, prosecute and convict illegal cannabis users.sbreader and I base our assessments of the NP on different priorities; it's not surprising that we have different opinions.
On NLRB Sets <em>News-Press</em> Hearing
Posted on December 4 at 7:27 p.m.
EatTheRich - the concept that truth can be purchased is disgusting, but all media is biased, and interpreting the news in the context of the specific bias of a publication is the closest you can get to truth. I don't believe that the Rothchilds' control of AP and Reuters is based on income or investment value, for example. I think the potential use of the media in social engineering is of much greater value to their interests than the dollar value of the news bureaus.The NP has always been much more conservative than the south county population, and all SB news is unusually biased in support of local government relative to other communities. The NP has noticeably become more of a vanity press reflecting the owner's personal opinions under McCaw's ownership, but the NP hasn't changed radically over the past 40 years.

Iran has nothing to worry about as long as Iranian Communist, former Weathermen member Valerie Jarrett is Obama's Senior White House Advisor.
Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorne, close friends of Jarrett to this day, funded President Obama’s Harvard education. These facts have led many to believe that Valerie Jarrett is making the major decisions in the White House.Could, or would, Jarrett ever embrace the Ayers philosophy or re-education camps and mass extermination for those whom they deem to be an enemy of the new American communism? The following paragraph is strongly suggestive of this possibility.
Communist sympathizer Valerie Jarrett, now serving as Barack Obama’s Senior White House Adviser, is strongly rumored, from multiple sources, that just prior to the recent general election, to have issued a clear threat against the rank and file members of the American public who do not support President Obama. Allegedly Jarrett said “After we win this election, it is payback time. For those who supported us, there will be rewards, for the ones who opposed us, they will get what they deserve. There will be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. With no election to worry about, we have two judges ready to go.”
Although Jarrett certainly does have the pedigree of a committed communist bent on the destruction of the United States as we know it, her aforementioned actions and statements do not directly prove prosecuteable criminal activity, although they are strongly suggestive that the present Senior White House Advisor, is in violation of her oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic and should be removed from office.

blahblahblahblahblahblahblah: Try to find your quote in the Supreme Court decision blahblahblah. - or are you implicitly accusing Ca Supreme Court Justices of "expressing a pro gang culture'?Always go for ad hominem attacks when you have nothing to say. foobar of course gang injunctions are legal -that's why LA and the bay area have stopped enforcing parts of their injunctions to avoid lawsuits and why LA has a $28 million lawsuit pending - connect the dots much?

Senator Lindsey Graham and US military commanders fortunately obstructed Savior Obama's attempt to employ Allah's Nuclear blessing to clean Charleston, South Carolina of US citizen infidels recently.

We really need a whole lot more blahblahblahblahblah in the news.
Gang injunctions, including the injunction that was the basis of the CA Supreme court case Gallo v Carlos Acuna, are lawsuits based on violation of public nuisance statutes that apply to barking dogs, not terrorists. Current gang injunctions name gang members, not institutions. This was the basis of the Supreme court decision - the injunction couldn't be used as racial profiling because since all enjoined members were named, and the injunction applied to a geographically small area, it wasn't unconstitutionally vague. The sixth district appeals court decision invalidated 15 of the 24 provisions in the preliminary injunction sought by the Santa Clara District Attorney in February 1993. The California Court of Appeals also ruled that the "harassing, intimidating and annoying" language of the injunction was unconstitutionally vague and overbroad and that the prohibition of the gang members congregating in Rocksprings violated their First Amendment right to free association.The $28 million lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles: The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear the lawsuit this fall and a decision is not expected for months.The lawsuit has already forced the Los Angeles police to stop enforcing gang injunction curfews, according to a 2012 department order. Los Angeles also could be forced to permanently stop using curfews, Orange (Olu Orange, defendants' attorney) said.http://www.sbsun.com/article/20130914...

"people who can't make good decisions for themselves have to be simply told no by someone else", and foobar needs to be told to stop posting comments that are lies. In 1997, the CA Supreme Court decided that one particular gang injunction that named all individuals and that encompassed 4 square blocks didn't violate the constitutional rights of gang members. The court didn't address the effectiveness of gang injunctions or support them as a means of reducing gang membership or gang crime. A dissenting opinion authored by Justice Stanley Mosk warned that "The majority would permit our cities to close off entire neighborhoods to Latino youths who have done nothing more than dress in blue or black clothing or associate with others who do so; they would authorize criminal penalties for ordinary, nondisruptive acts of walking or driving through a residential neighborhood with a relative or a friend."People ex rel Gallo v Carlos Acuna

foobar - that's because laws including drug laws and gang injunctions have never had any long-term effect, right; because they don't work outside of your head."Sometimes people who can't make good decision for themselves have to be simply told no by someone else. This is one of those situations." - GREAT POINT HERE, FOOBAR- get some help.

EatTheRich: Excellent example of the use of an ad hominem attack in disinformation as well as implied conformation of Corsi's article.
"Conspiracy theory" was coined by the CIA, referring to those who questioned the government's explanation for JFK's assassination. It's a US government disinformation term.
A conspiracy requires two or more participants. Who are the conspirators in Obama's non-US citizenship? -
the state of Hawaii, that says his birth certificate is forged?
The Indonesian state school system whose records show that he attended school there when the country was at war and only admitted citizen students?
Columbia University, whose records show that an Islamic Indonesian citizen named Barry Soetoro attended the university as a foreign student?
The IRS, in rejecting a 1040 e-filed with Obama's name and his phony SS#, based on an invalid SS# on the 1040?

Is there any better reason to support a gang injunction than foobar's comment here?:"We prevent children from smoking and drinking alcohol or pot by acts of law. This is no different. Sometimes people who can't make good decision for themselves have to be simply told no by someone else. This is one of those situations."
"In 2011 the National Survey on Drug Use and HealthExternal Web Site Icon reported that 25% of youth aged 12 to 20 years drink alcohol and 16% reported binge drinking.
In 2011, the Monitoring the Future SurveyExternal Web Site Icon reported that 33% of 8th graders and 70% of 12th graders had tried alcohol, and 13% of 8th graders and 40% of 12th graders drank during the past month.
Each day in the United States, nearly 4,000 people younger than 18 years of age smoke their first cigarette, and an estimated 1,000 youth in that age group become new daily cigarette smokers.2,6 This means that nearly 400,000 young people become daily smokers each year.
Percentage of high school students who smoked one or more cigarettes in the previous month in 2011: 18.1%
Recent publications by the Surgeon General and the Institute of Medicine outlined many prevention strategies that will require actions on the national, state, and local levels, such as enforcement of minimum legal drinking age laws, national media campaigns targeting youth and adults, increasing alcohol excise taxes, reducing youth exposure to alcohol advertising, and development of comprehensive community-based programs. These efforts will require continued research and evaluation to determine their success and to improve their effectiveness.
"teen marijuana use is at its highest in 30 years, and teens are now more likely to use marijuana than tobacco. In 2011, a national study showed that one in eight 8th graders, one in four 10th graders, and one in three 12th graders have used marijuana in the past year. AACAP
