Gov. Newsom, Kevin Cooper Is Guilty

Kevin Cooper used to tell reporters that he wanted DNA testing, which didn’t exist when he went to trial, to prove that he was not guilty of the four 1983 murders that put him on California’s death row. If the tests implicated him, he said, he would drop his appeals.
In 2000, Cooper got those tests — and they nailed him.
DNA tests placed Cooper in the Chino Hills home of chiropractors Doug and Peggy Ryen, who were found dead with their daughter Jessica, 10, and houseguest Christopher Hughes, 11.

It’s humiliating for President Joe Biden that in the almost three weeks since he appointed Kamala Harris as his border point woman, she still hasn’t visited the disaster zone, come up with a plan or held a press conference on the migrant crisis.
Instead, she’s visited a water treatment plant in California and a bakery in Chicago, where the press pool reported on her sweet tooth last week.
“Her favorite is German chocolate, and [she] gets that for her birthday each year, and her staff had pre-ordered a slice for her.
