The U.S. Department of Justice is repaying the sheriff’s, police and fire departments that responded to the Dec. 2 terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center $500,000 for the extraordinary expenses incurred by the response.
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (R-CA-42) released the following statement regarding Donald Trump:
“For all of my life I have supported and fought for conservative principles, Republican candidates and a safer, more prosperous future for our country. Donald Trump is our presumptive nominee and I intend to support him. Donald represents the populist wing of the Republican Party. Donald is a disruptor and Washington certainly needs that. He has received a record number of votes in the GOP primaries. House Republicans are conservative reformers. We hold a record number of seats. Winning elections and advancing conservative causes works best when we are adding and multiplying, not subtracting and dividing.
On November 8, 2016 I hope all Republicans, a majority of independents and a large number of free-thinking Democrats will unify to prevent Hillary Clinton from carrying out a third term of President Obama’s damaging policies.”

One of the most infamous outlaws in California history carried out the final crime of his career in November of 1883. Charles Bowles, also known as Black Bart, was tracked down following an eight-year career of robbing stagecoaches and leaving poems at the scene of the hold-up.
Almost 133 years later, mail theft holds an increasingly strong appeal for California criminals, most of whom lack the panache of the poet-bandit. “It’s happening all over the place,” Rep. Ken Calvert, R., Calif., told the Washington Examiner. “Apparently, this is a growing phenomenon.”
Nancy Reagan will be deeply missed by Americans and people around the world because of her compassion, warmth and devotion to causes greater than her own. Nancy, along with the love of her life, President Reagan, forged one of the iconic American first-couples that continue to inspire us today. I feel incredibly fortunate to have spent some time with Mrs. Reagan on a number of occasions and will always treasure those moments.
