    Politics is full of ironies. It is ironic that California, a deep blue state that is often written off in presidential politics, (except when it comes to money) may be ground zero for the midterm elections. The Democrats’ goal of going after affluent, well-educated districts that are held by Republicans but were carried by Hillary Clinton in order to fashion a majority got a real boost in Tuesday’s primary. First, a primer on the California system. Simply stated, party primaries have been abolished in favor of allowing the top two finishers, regardless of party, to face each other in November....

    **snip***full title: BREAKING: Alex Padilla, California’s Secretary of State just got served, over Voter Rolls.Californians voted for Hillary Clinton over President Donald Trump by a whopping 4 million votes.The first step in any legal proceeding is to serve notice of intent to take legal action and give them a chance to fix the problem. That is exactly what Judicial Watch did. On August 4, 2017, Judicial Watch announced it has notified California’s Secretary of State, Alex Padilla of their intent to sue if California doesn’t comply with the National Voter Registration Act.
  • Why noncitizens should be given the right to vote

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | August 6, 2017 | Joe Mathews
    President Trump claims California allowed millions of noncitizens to vote in the 2016 elections. This allegation, while totally bogus, has put California on the defensive as Trump and his allies use the lie to justify a new federal commission devoted to making it harder for all Americans to vote. Californians should go on offense — by embracing Trump’s ugly lie and transforming it into a beautiful civic truth. Let’s make our state more democratic — by guaranteeing California’s noncitizens the right to vote in local and state elections.
  • Experts: California voter registration system 'highly susceptible' to fraud

    California’s voter registration system is “highly susceptible to being compromised,” because of immigration policies protecting the Golden State’s 2.4 million illegal immigrants, authorities have told Fox News. The integrity of elections may be compromised by a lack of oversight of non-citizens registering and voting, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative and senior legal fellow for the Institute for Constitutional Government at The Heritage Foundation. “If you are talking about California, the state is apparently relying on the illegal alien to tell the state they shouldn’t be registered. There is still an honor system,” said von...

    California lawmakers already are preparing for a legal brawl with the Donald Trump administration – and they’ve got President Obama’s former top attorney in their corner. Top state Democratic lawmakers announced Wednesday that former Attorney General Eric Holder has been tapped as outside counsel to advise the Legislature on potential challenges with the Trump government. He will lead a team from the Covington & Burling law firm, where he’s been working since leaving the Obama administration in 2015. “With the upcoming change in administrations, we expect that there will be extraordinary challenges for California in the uncertain times ahead,” California...

    New York Times ^ | December 26, 2016 | Henry Fountain
    Foreign governments concerned about climate change may soon be spending more time dealing with Sacramento than Washington. President-elect Donald J. Trump has packed his cabinet with nominees who dispute the science of global warming. He has signaled he will withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. He has belittled the notion of global warming and attacked policies intended to combat it. But California — a state that has for 50 years been a leader in environmental advocacy — is about to step unto the breach. In a show of defiance, Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, and legislative leaders...

    Investors Business Daily ^ | 12/16/2016 | JOHN MERLINE
    Democrats who are having trouble getting out of denial aren't being helped by the fact that Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has topped 2.8 million, giving her a 48% share of the vote compared with Trumps 46%. To those unschooled in how the United States selects presidents, this seems totally unfair. But look more closely at the numbers and you see that Clinton's advantage disappears. While Clinton's overall margin looks large, it is due to Clinton's huge margin of victory in one state — California — where she got a whopping 4.3 million more votes. California is the...

    Democrats who are having trouble getting out of the first stage of grief — denial — aren't being helped by the fact that, now that all the votes are counted, Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has topped 2.8 million, giving her a 48% share of the vote compared with Trumps 46%. To those unschooled in how the United States selects presidents, this seems totally unfair. But look more closely at the numbers and you see that Clinton's advantage all but disappears. As we noted in this space earlier, while Clinton's overall margin looks large and impressive, it is...

    It took three weeks to confirm it, thanks to California’s excruciatingly slow ballot counts, but Darrell Issa will return to Congress in January. Democrats had targeted his seat in order to push out one of the most conservative Republicans in the House, and to send a message to Barack Obama’s critics. Instead, Issa managed to eke out a narrow win over Doug Applegate in the toughest race of his career.Note, though, the way the Associated Press leads this story as it calls the race for Issa: The wealthiest member of Congress is keeping his job.Republican Darrell Issa narrowly defeated...

The Associated Press called the race Monday evening for Newman, who had been steadily gaining ground as provisional and absentee ballots were counted over the last three weeks. “I am immensely honored to have earned the trust and support of so many of my neighbors, who’ve placed their...

    In California illegal aliens are allowed to obtain driver's licenses. Last year California passed a "motor voter" law. It stipulates that unless the applicant opts out, the applicant will automatically be added to the voter rolls. The potential for fraud is yuuge. Tens of thousands of dead people are on the voting roles, many still “receive” their permanent absentee ballot. Illegal aliens are on the roles—thanks to the Democrats all an illegal alien has to do is get a California drivers license and they can register to vote, almost automatically. Then it is up to the County Registrar of Voters...

    There are 300 “Sanctuary Cities” and counties around the United States that have policies in place blocking local law enforcement from complying with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer requests for immigration holds. An ICE detainer is a written request for a local jail or other law enforcement agency to detain an individual for an additional 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) after his or her release date, in order to provide ICE agents extra time to decide whether to take the individual into federal custody for removal purposes.

    Trump should threaten a California recount, and here's why: It would kill two birds with one stone, and likely shut down this entire recount nonsense. First, he should announce that the statewide California recount would include a forensic recount of voter irregularities in Los Angeles County. Uncovering the volume of illegal immigrant voting would be a severe detriment Clinton's numbers and standing. Second, a slow vote would remove California from the list of available electors (as some are saying that the real reason for WI, MI, and PA recounts are to remove them from the vote on December 19th). The...

    American Thinker ^ | November 27, 2016 | Robert Oscar Lopez
    When people speak of Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote, they are really speaking about California. In that state, Hillary Clinton won 6,621,346 votes to Donald Trump's 3,549,576 as of this writing. This margin of over three million votes alone accounts for any claim that Clinton exceeded Trump in popular support. Consider some numbers. In New York, Trump won 37.5% of the vote; in New Jersey, Trump won over 40%; and in Illinois, Trump won 39.4%. Among sizably populated states that lean "overwhelmingly" Democrat, California is in a class by itself. Trump struggled to get even a third of Californian...

    "Should California become a free, sovereign, and independent country?" The question could appear on a statewide ballot in 2018 if a group of secessionists has its way. Marcus Evans, the vice president of Yes California, filed a proposed ballot measure with the Attorney General's Office on Monday that would appear on the November 2018 gubernatorial ballot. If voters approve the measure, it would establish a special election in March 2019 to ask voters again if they want California to become an independent country, Yes California wrote in a ballot measure filing. More than half of the registered voters in the state must...

    Last week, televangelist Jim Bakker reacted to the presidential election results by prophesying that God will punish people who live in counties that voted for Hillary Clinton. Bakker pointed to a map that showed the results of the election by county and said that “if you live in the blue—any spot that’s blue—I would say, ‘Oh God, help me. Oh God forgive me.’ Because those are the ones who came against the will of God in this election.” “I just want to tell you, God has spoken to me, I’ve seen under the ground in California, in LA, and God...

    To combat an alarming surge in racism, hate and bullying in the schools post-election, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom called on local and county superintendents to act immediately to establish a zero-tolerance policy for hate in the schools and create a clearinghouse to report such incidents statewide. The Southern Poverty Law Center has tracked reported hate crime and racist incidents statewide and nationwide from Nov. 9 to Nov. 16. During that period California had more than 80 reported incidents, the most overall of any state in the country, Newsom said.

    One of the many, many consequences of Donald Trump’s victory Tuesday night is that the nation will have to wait at least four more years to see a woman elected president. Hillary Clinton’s loss came as a devastating blow to many people across the country eager to see a woman take office. But among Tuesday’s winners is California’s new Democratic senator-elect, Kamala Harris, who may be the next best hope for shattering that glass ceiling.

    A group of left-wing Californians, frustrated with the recent election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, has filed an application to put a secession referendum — “Calexit” — on the 2018 ballot. The East Bay Times reports that the group, called Yes California, intends to circumvent the U.S. Congress: A “yes” vote would trigger a special election the following March in which residents would decide if “California should become a free, sovereign and independent country.” Another “yes” vote would require the governor of the newly minted “Republic of California” to apply to the United...
