California Insider Interviews Mendocino County Sheriff Matt Kendall About Cartel Presence in Our Rural North


Mendocino County Sheriff Matt Kendall sat down for a long-form interview with Siyamak Khorrami, the host of California Insider, an interview series that focuses on California politics, drug policy, and immigration.

Their conversation explored drug cartels and cannabis, opioid deaths, policing tribal lands, and problematic policies emanating from Sacramento.

For a broader context, consider the fact California Insider is a YouTube channel connected to the Epoch Times, which many describe as a far-right media company associated with the Chinese Falun Gong religious movement. California Insider has a tendency to interview figures critical of California’s Democratic supermajority.

      ” 1970s Back to the land movement” – That’s PC for white flight of the late 60s and early 70s because it was predominantly middle to upper class white young adults.

      “Compassionate youth of 1996” – The State legalized Medical cannabis and broke our monopoly on the black cannabis market since non-locals were moving in and getting involved in the same game the locals have been in for decades…. – I.E. Violence took place.

      Live by the sword, die by the sword sums this interview up.
