As I listened to California Governor, Jerry Brown on a Sunday morning talk show this past weekend, he confirmed that the ongoing water “crisis” has nothing to do with water, and everything to do with control. Brown, who took unprecedented
Instead of building dams, reservoirs and fighting to preserve every drop of water he can for Californians, Jerry Brown has chosen to waste his political capital on a train that no one wants, which California can’t afford--and he’s stealing people’s land and closing down businesses in order to do it. And now, finally in his fifth year as governor, he finally decides to act on the drought—and, in quintessential Jerry Brown style, he blames those who have nothing to do with creating the crisis and threatens to penalize them if they don’t comply.
In a little-noticed move this week, California State Assembly Minority Leader Kristin Olsen, completed a purge of “conservative” policy staffers. The dramatic reversal—in both function and ideology of the Assembly Republican Caucus—mirrors the California GOP's leftward shift, which has eschewed social conservatives as a “fringe” element.
Just what we need in California: another incentive for more illegals to come here; another excuse for the Democrat-controlled state government to raise taxes on the rest of us. This past week, I received a media inquiry that, at first,
In response to an all-out assault on religious liberty and the right to associate freely on California college campuses, Assemblywoman Shannon Grove introduced the California Freedom of Association Act on Friday. Breitbart News brought you this story on Sep. 11 of
In a state where leftists use the public schools to promote their socialist ideology with impunity, imagine my surprise when a teacher handed out a flyer promoting racism: "In order to challenge racism and dismantle white supremacy, white people need to unlearn racism and discover the ways we enact white privilege."
It turns out illegal aliens can use their "Federally-Restricted" Drivers Licenses to board airplanes, according to an internal Security Memo leaked to the public, which has been confirmed as authentic by TSA Spokesman Nico Melendez.
When Martin Luther King said, “Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism,” he was talking about individuals rising up against the forces that had kept blacks down, not government intervention.
If you believe that government ought to keep its hands out of your pockets, and stick to its proper role--which is protecting our right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”; securing our borders; maintaining infrastructure; and achieving a handful of other things enumerated in the Constitution--then you cannot be silent in the face of an attempt to seize what little freedom you have left.
Why not call a meeting of both GOP establishment and conservative leaders in California, and get them to agree to a strategy as a party? The basic strategy is very simple. Let the people pick the candidate. Then everyone--activists and donors alike--agree to back the primary winner through the general election. Instead of squandering tens of millions in the primary, perhaps the money could be pledged to support the Republican victor, regardless of whether he or she is a conservative or a liberal Republican.
It’s official. John Boehner is still the king, and those who dared rebel against the king have been put down. 25 Patriots stood against the king–well, 24 plus one U.S. Representative who merely voted “present”–and for their courage, they will all
It is no surprise that many Americans think that government represents the greatest threat to their future. In that light, Californians have reason to dread the convening of the legislature, which starts back up Monday.
Effective January 1st, drivers in California will be in for a shock as gas prices jump. This overnight price increase has nothing to do with the fluctuations of the market, nor will drivers be getting a better grade of gasoline. It’s simply the price of supporting a government that wants to control your every move.
As we are now in the throes of the heaviest travel season of the year, I thought I’d share my tale of two airlines.
After one of the most resounding election victories in recent history, the GOP establishment–not “leadership,” because there’s none of that to be found–has surrendered, granting an undeserved victory to an embattled, lame-duck president, whose policies were roundly rejected by voters.
Everyone knows–whether they admit it or not–that President Barack Obama’s “executive amnesty” is wrong. But most Americans aren’t sure how to stop him–even though if this last election was about anything, it was about stopping Obama from granting an executive
In 2014, “the year of the Republican,” California was only the state in the nation that lost solidly Republican seats to Democrats. As the election results rolled in, the perfect, red Republican wave came to a crashing end on California’s sandy
On Friday, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte–an illegal alien criminal–allegedly shot and killed two sheriff’s deputies in the Northern California counties of Sacramento and Placer. He also allegedly shot another man in the head for resisting a car-jacking. Monroy-Bracamonte had been deported twice before
Proposition #1 isn’t a water infrastructure bond, it’s nothing more than a $7.12 Billion payoff to the enviro-extremists who control natural resources in California. What else do you call it when over 50% of the money is being used to
227 years ago today, September 17th, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed. On that day, the delegates met for the final time and signed the revolutionary document they had spent months crafting. As a result of their extraordinary statesmanship, this
Borders matter. That became crystal clear this past week, when Tesla picked a location just over the border in Nevada, instead of locating its new battery factory in its largest market, California. The regulatory and tax burden is significantly lower
On Friday, the California State Assembly outdid itself. You can always count on the leftist leaders of what is supposed to be the “people’s house” never lets a crisis go to waste. With the passage of AB 1739 (Dickinson-D), SB
In a few short months, I will be out of elected office. When I ran for Governor, I knew it was “win or go home.” So, I will soon be an ordinary citizen again–and soon enough, I too, will be
Wanna pay 8-9 bucks a gallon for gas? Think it couldn’t happen here? It’s already happening. The “Hidden Gas Tax”, buried deep within California’s”Cap-and-Trade” program, was tucked away in the fine print of AB 32–a 2006 bill that radically increased
