California Lawmakers Looking Into Using Federal Funds to ‘Partner’ With Racial Minorities to Buy Homes

California Lawmakers Looking Into Using Federal Funds to ‘Partner’ With Racial Minorities to Buy Homes


California’s Senate Democrats have released their “Budget Priorities for 2021-22 and Beyond” titled “Build Back Boldly.” And bold, it is. One radical initiative is to create the “California Dream for All” First Time Homebuyer Program aimed at bridging a racial divide in homeownership, specifically for “underrepresented homeownership communities, those that have still not returned to homeownership after losing homes in the Great Recession, and those with high student debts.”

The program would cut costs for the first-time homebuyers by as much as a whopping 40 percent, by essentially purchasing a home with a “silent partner” which consists of a state-sponsored corporation establishing a “revolving fund called the California Dream Fund which would be infused with a one-time deposit of available state or federal funds.”

The description for the proposed program reads:

The wealth gap – particularly among racial minorities – is a growing problem throughout the country and here in California. Generation after generation, those with wealth get wealthier, and those without fall further behind. As has been the case so often throughout the nation’s history, this has been made worse by racist barriers constructed to hold communities back – and the impacts of those barriers are still evident today.

The first step to reaching the California dream of thriving in the middle class and building family wealth starts with homeownership. But taking that first step is even more challenging as the cost of California homes grows higher and higher.

The California Dream For All first time homebuyer program aims to address historical and economic barriers to homeownership with a new way for Californians to buy a first home and get a foothold in the middle class and to begin to build family wealth.  The California Dream For All program allows Californians to purchase a first home with a “silent partner,” therefore dramatically reducing the cost for the homebuyer.

The “Basics” include “eligible first-time homebuyers ‘partner’ in purchasing eligible homes, with the Fund. The Fund serves as a ‘silent partner’ and owns a minority share of up to 45% of the house.” For example, “this enables a $400,000 home to be essentially purchased for a more affordable price of $220,000, the Fund purchasing the other $180,000 share.”

Shares of the Fund would also be sold to investors, and the revenues generated by the sale of shares are then used to pay for homes for additional homebuyers.

California Highway Mass Casualty Crash Involved Smugglers, Illegal Immigrants


A horrendous crash on a Southern California highway left at least 13 people dead. The crash occurred in the town of Holtville, about 125 miles outside of San Diego, and involved human smugglers and 25 illegal immigrants. A Border Patrol source told people dead on the scene. A thirteenth victim died at a local hospital and eight others were transported to different local hospitals for “several different life-threatening injuries.” The commercial truck driver was also hospitalized with moderate injuries. Customs and Border Protection sources told Fox News that the crash occurred after a hole was cut in the U.S.-Mexico border fence near Calexico, California.

The vehicle involved in the crash was one of “two vehicles crammed with illegal immigrants inside” that “had driven through the ten-foot-wide hole in the early morning hours of Monday’s midnight shift, sources say, somehow evading a mobile camera system set up nearby” reports Fox News. The fence appears to likely have been constructed sometime between 2007 and 2009. Sources added “border patrol was not looking for the smugglers until they were notified by the Imperial County Sheriff’s Office about the crash, which occurred about 8 miles north of where the fence was cut.”

A California Highway Patrol Official told Fox News they are working with the Mexican consulate to identify the victims and notify their families. Victims smuggled in the vehicle were both males and females ranging in age from 15 to 53.”>Fox News Tuesday’s crash “involved an overloaded Ford Expedition, which normally seats eight, and a semi-truck near the U.S.-Mexico border.”

The back seats of the SUV had been removed to create more space for the human smugglers to fit the 25 illegal immigrants into the single-vehicle. “Authorities do not yet know if the driver of the Ford, who died in the crash, had stopped at a stop sign before crossing into the path of the big rig around 6:15 am, CHP Chief Omar Watson told reporters.”

The Ford’s left side was hit by a gravel-hauling semi-truck, and California Highway Patrol officers found 12 people dead on the scene. A thirteenth victim died at a local hospital and eight others were transported to different local hospitals for “several different life-threatening injuries.” The commercial truck driver was also hospitalized with moderate injuries.

California Public School Children Could be Forced to Sing Chants to Aztec God of Human Sacrifice


Next week, California’s education department will vote on an ethnic studies curriculum for the state which advocates for the “decolonization” of American society and “elevates Aztec religious symbolism,” according to a report by Christopher Rufo.

The program, called the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, “seeks to extend the Left’s cultural dominance of California’s public university system, 50 years in the making, to the state’s entire primary and secondary education system, which consists of 10,000 public schools serving a total of 6 million students,” writes Rufo.

The curriculum instructs teachers to help students “challenge racist, bigoted, discriminatory, imperialist/colonial beliefs.” This will help the educators inspire students to take part in “social movements that struggle for social justice” and “build new possibilities for a post-racist, post-systemic racism society.”

The education program often cites the book, Rethinking Ethnic Studies by R. Tolteka Cuauhtin, the original cochair of the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum.

According to Rufo, Cuauhtin argues in his book that the U.S. was founded on “Eurocentric, white supremacist (racist, anti-Black, anti-Indigenous), capitalist (classist), patriarchal (sexist and misogynistic), heteropatriarchal (homophobic), and anthropocentric paradigm brought from Europe.”

As far as religion is concerned, the program has a disturbing “ethnic studies community chant.”

Rufo explains:

The curriculum recommends that teachers lead their students in a series of indigenous songs, chants, and affirmations, including the “In Lak Ech Affirmation,” which appeals directly to the Aztec gods. Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka—whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism—asking him for the power to be “warriors” for “social justice.” Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking “healing epistemologies” and “a revolutionary spirit.” Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization,” after which students shout “Panche beh! Panche beh!” in pursuit of ultimate “critical consciousness.”
