"No Hindi, no Hindu, no Hindustan" | This is the Khalistani gurudwara in Sacramento where two people were shot

This is what Khalistani militants are preaching inside the Sacramento gurdwara where two Sikhs fired bullets on each other on Sunday.
#Khalistan ideology only bring #violence, #crime and #hate into the society | They are teaching young #Sikh #children to eliminate #Hindi, #Hindu and #Hindustan (#India).

Dangerous indoctrination of impressionable minds.

Proof that extremist #Khalistani ideology has infiltrared #Gurdwara #Sacramento #Sikh Society, where at least two people were shot

Khalistani flags everywhere & imagery of radical Amritpal Singh is hung on the walls of the Gurdwara

#DYK that on this day in 1854, #Sacramento became the California State Capitol? #SD8

Check out this 🧵courtesy of #TeamAshby and
@AlexCVassar at @CAStateLibrary Image
Other cities in #California that have served as capitals are:

Monterey (1774-1849)
San Jose (1849-1851)
Vallejo (1852-1853)
Benicia (1853-1854)
San Francisco (1862)

Of course, here in #SD8, Sacramento is our favorite! Image
The Assembly Chambers are decorated in green to remind people of the fields (the Assembly had the role of House of Commons.)

The Senate is decorated in red, since that’s the color used by the House of Lords in England (the upper house.) Image

1 in 4 flippers sold their homes for LESS $$$ than expected in our 4Q22 survey. Elevated rates and falling home prices are scaring buyers wary of buying on the way down, but investors are clearly looking to acquire now and refinance later. 🧵Flipper comments to follow ->
#Austin flipper: “Austin has an overinflated housing market that is compounded by elevated interest rates. This has resulted in a downward spiral in qualified buyers. The fix and flip market is pretty much gone. Prices in most areas are down about -30% or more in recent months.”
#Baltimore flipper: “We’re looking forward to a big 2023. I hate to say it, but a lot of it’s going to be on the backs of consumers with hardships, or circumstances where they have no other options. But that’s our bread and butter.”

Home builder construction costs finally cooling. Market commentary from our December survey of builders signals relief on the horizon...
#Dallas builder: “Hard costs continue to dip on average $3K-$5K per month. We are pushing back hard to lower our average labor and material costs. They must come down to reflect lower home selling prices.”
#Denver builder: “Almost all the home builders I am talking to are working on cost reductions. They range from -5% to -8% per plan.”

Veamos #mapas de Alta California 🇲🇽 (1828, 1836 y 1847)

La capital de Alta California no era ni San Francisco, ni Los Ángeles y mucho menos Sacramento (que aún no se fundaba).

Se llamaba San Carlos de Monterrey y tenía solo 2mil habitantes en 1840

Hay mucho más por contar ⬇️
En este #mapa aparecen 3 sitios de interés que ya les había comentado antes:

una colonia rusa 🇷🇺
una colonia suiza 🇨🇭 y
el pueblo más norteño fundado en la era mexicana 🇲🇽

Aquí está el chisme ⬇️
Por un lado, en la Bahía de la Bodega, el Fuerte Ross era una colonia rusa 🇷🇺 establecida para abastecer de alimento a la población de la Rusia Americana (Alaska).

Ross no tiene origen en el nombre inglés Ross, sino en una abreviación de #Rossiya, el nombre ruso de Rusia.

Big takeaways from our survey of fix-and-flippers last week: 1) Rates have massively slowed transactions and prices are falling broadly. 2) Lots of talk about flippers changing strategies, holding-and-renting instead of flipping, or exiting the space entirely.

#Atlanta flipper: “Many highly-leveraged flippers will need to go out of pocket to sell or will default on no-recourse loans. We will not see improvement until the 2nd half of 2024. Many will not make it to that point and there will be some bargains for cash-flush investors.”
#Baltimore flipper: “Sellers are still not reacting to market shifts. Sellers need to lower prices.”

Yesterday, we shared a comparison of #CalFresh and #MarketMatch numbers from January - August 2021 and 2022. Now, take a look at the growth in CF/MM distribution at local #Sacramento farmers' markets since 2019! (1/11)
Let's take a moment for a history lesson: While there were concerns early in the pandemic that farmers' markets would not survive, they were declared essential services and allowed to remain open. Markets adapted quickly, adopting new safety measures, (2/11)
and many saw growth in demand as people felt more comfortable shopping for groceries outdoors where contagious spread was far less likely. As many jobs were lost and federal rules were temporarily changed to expand SNAP (CalFresh) eligibility, (3/11)

August home builder sentiment and sales/prices/starts survey results are in. Top themes: 1) Home price cuts along with other incentives are helping sales (for now). 2) Supply chain is healing as demand drops and builders quickly slow housing starts. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “A lot of spec inventory to work through. August was a very poor month for sales across the board. Cancellations spiked from July and buyers showed no sense of urgency.”
#Baltimore builder: “Jumbo loan rates below 5% are helping buyers move forward in that segment.”

#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are shrinking or buyers are truly pausing.”

Singer Traci Braxton of 'Braxton Family Values' dies at 50… <--- Pink lipstick. Srsly, how often do women wear that? Uses one eye symbolism. Mentions light, kids. Surprised "heartbreaking" not in it. S'pose they included enough to please the Big Guy.
Another story in which (transgender) sleb is shown wearing pinky-purple lipstick. That is so distinctive, innit? (Also, what do you use to *blow whistle*? Lips, right?) Kid mentioned as well. What are the odds? #symbolism #occultelite Image
At 55, Halle Berry Shows Off Super Toned Legs in Bikini While Skateboarding in New IG Post… <--- We can be thankful she's not 52. Risky age for famous, esp in Australia. In any case, there's heart again in form of Lolita glasses. They look pink too.

We @JBREC just surveyed 400+ flippers about #fixandflip conditions in partnership with Flatiron Realty Capital and @SundaeHQ.
Key takeaway: There is a TON of competition for deals right now.
#LasVegas flipper: “Market is oversaturated with inexperienced investors due to an increase of “gurus.” Supply is low, demand is high, and prices are inflated 20%+ over ARV. Not sustainable.”
#Phoenix flipper: “Phoenix is a very active market with home prices on the rise. The competition is aggressive.”

Enfin une « bonne » nouvelle en provenance des États-Unis 🇺🇸 : La #sécheresse en partie résorbée en #Californie après plusieurs épisodes d’#intempéries ces dernières semaines. L’État de l'Ouest #américain était en proie à une sécheresse historique à l’automne dernier. #Thread 🧵 Image
📈Contexte : Les #USA contigus ont connu un été météorologique (Juin-Août) 2021 record 🌡, l’un des plus chaud jamais enregistré, à égalité avec l’été 1936. Sur la période Janvier-Août 2021, les températures sur tout l’ouest américain ont été bien au-dessus des normales. @NOAA ImageImage
Zoom 🔎 sur l’Ouest américain : Tout simplement l’été météorologique le plus chaud depuis le début des relevés en 1895. Près de 3°C au-dessus de la normale 🥵 (1901-2000). Du jamais vu !

Just published September home builder survey results (sales, prices, costs, communities, etc.). Big themes: 1) Supply chain, supply chain, supply chain. 2) Monthly price hikes no longer the norm. 3) Some of the hottest markets sounding toppy. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “No end in sight for labor & material issues. Told by logistics guy last week that his company believes it will take at least a year to get the supply chain back to working.”
#Austin builder: “Availability of windows has limited closings this year & availability of appliances has caused closings to slide to a later month. Availability of paint is stressing Q4 closings & causing even more bunching toward late in the year.”

2 #California men charged w/conspiring to destroy the @TheDemocrats party HQ in #Sacramento after #Election2020

Copeland, Rogers "used multiple messaging applications & discussed the attacks on numerous occasions" per @TheJusticeDept

Copeland, Rogers also "sought support from an anti-government militia group" per @TheJusticeDept

Officials say Copeland also communicated w/a leader of a militia group after Rogers was arrested, who advised him to destroy evidence of the encrypted communications...

Yesterday I sat with a city leader in a smaller city not too far from #Sacramento. We talked about their innovative approach to addressing #homelessness and was blown away... (this thread is long but hopefully worth it)
First, they thought to themselves: how can we utilize our shared needs and resources to leverage collective power?

They did this by signing an MOU with two counties and several cities to create a consortium. Each has one elected representative, their city manager or county executive, and city/county attorneys a part of the coalition.

Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

Here's a housing🧵to chew on over weekend. Mid-June update from 100+home builders across country. 1) rumblings of price ceiling. 2) slightly shrinking pool of qualified buyers. 3) some home releases not selling out immediately. 4) normal summer slowing as vacations take priority.
#Austin builder: “Some interest lists are shrinking & others are not. Seeing buyers who are no longer able or willing to afford the monthly payment. Definitely seeing attrition here. Frustration that prices continued going up without an opportunity to purchase.”
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are definitely shrinking because of pricing. Some drop off is happening due to price. But the re-sale market is still so tight it hasn’t dropped substantially. Extremely concerned about pricing going forward.”
