    I am planning on flying to CA and then driving back to Texas with my daughter and grandchildren. I would feel much safer with a firearm on the way back, with so much desolate area and close to the border. My question is, will I be given grief when I arrive at Burbank? It's a pistol, actually purchased in CA but several years ago. Can I take my ammo? This is why I hate flying, but I do t ha e a choice. THANKS!

    California is the poster child for solar energy: in 2016, 13% of the state's power came from solar sources. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, California is in the lead for the cumulative amount of solar electric capacity installed in 2016. In fact, the California is generating so much solar energy that it is resorting to paying other states to take the excess electricity in order to prevent overloading power lines. According to the Los Angeles Times, Arizona residents have already saved millions in 2017 thanks to California’s contribution.

    California has banned non-essential state-funded travel to four states in response to what Attorney General Xavier Becerra has decided are anti-LGBT rights laws those states have enacted over the past year. Texas, Alabama, South Dakota and Kentucky join the list first created last year. North Carolina, Kansas, Mississippi and Tennessee were the first states put on the list. California tax dollars “will not be used to let people travel to states who chose to discriminate,” Becerra said.

    Barack Obama could soon hear his name being uttered as part of Angelenos’ driving directions, with a Los Angeles city councilman proposing to name a street after him. Obama Boulevard could prove a relatively more innocuous role for the 44th president’s name than “Obamajam” — the oft-used term to refer to the anticipated congestion that accompanied his frequent fundraising trips to the Los Angeles area. City Council President Herb Wesson wants to rename a 3.4-mile segment of Rodeo Road, between Jefferson Boulevard and Arlington Avenue, after Obama because it would be a fitting addition to what is known in his...

    On Thursday, Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach) officially became the sixth candidate — and second Republican — to announce his candidacy for California’s 2018 Democrat-heavy gubernatorial race. Allen accompanied his surprise announcement with an a video ad titled, “Take Back California“: “I’ve seen our taxes increased to be among the highest in the nation, I’ve seen crime increase in every major metropolitan area, and I’ve seen an expansion of the government bureaucracy at the expense of hard-working Californians and their businesses,” Allen saays in the ad. “I am running for Governor to make California once again the greatest state in...

    In a huge victory, a California court today dismissed almost all of the criminal charges abortion activists filed against the pro-life advocates who recorded undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts from aborted babies. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 felony charges against both David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. Becerra is a longtime abortion advocate with financial connections to the Planned Parenthood abortion company that the two pro-life Advocates exposed in the videos for selling body parts such as fetal brains and livers. At the time, pro-life advocates said Becerra’s 15 felony charges were bogus charges meant...

  • How far left can California's legislative Democrats go before Republicans benefit at the ballot box?

    Democrats in the state Legislature are walking a tightrope, seemingly oblivious to potential danger. First, they raised gas taxes and vehicle fees. Then the Senate passed a ridiculously costly universal healthcare plan. Now, the Legislature is getting close to helping undocumented criminals avoid deportation. How far left can the majority party careen, even in deep blue California, before Republicans start benefiting at the ballot box? California voters only like state taxes that other people pay. A recent poll by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies found that 58% of voters oppose the transportation funding plan. In contrast to the gas-tax...

    San Francisco police detained a motorcyclist who they said drove his bike at a group of protesters demonstrating against the federal health care bill in an apparent attempt to hit them, according to witnesses as well as photographs and videos from the scene. A few dozen people were staging a “die-in” early Wednesday afternoon on Seventh Street near Mission Street when the man on a red motorcycle appeared, said one of the protesters, 43-year-old Tracey Brieger of Emeryville. She said the activists, some of whom held up posters that looked like tombstones to decry the Republican health care bill designed...

    The Obamacare repeal debate goes on.  We may have a U.S. Senate plan coming out in the next couple of weeks. Obamacare's implosion is also moving forward: "Iowa's Last Obamacare Insurer Asks For 43% Rate Increase For 2018"!  Wasn't this thing called the Affordable Care Act? The "single-payer" chorus is also singing 24/7.  They argue that a "single-payer" program would be good for all concerned or put us on the right side of history, as they love to say. Here is an idea.  Let California become our single-payer test case.  It is the only place in the U.S. where there are...

    The anti-Trump resistance is real. And if you're a taxpayer in California, it's really costing you. The Golden State has decided to take its opposition to President Donald Trump 's crackdown on illegal immigration beyond defending sanctuary city policies. The Democrat-dominated state legislature has just approved nearly $50 million for a program that will provide legal services and representation for illegal immigrants. Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you get 8 years of President Trump instead of just 4. No, California isn't likely to go from blue to red in the next election over this. But as the rest of...

These are only the donations he is required...

    There are few things quite as expensive as “free health care.” And the nation’s most populous state may be about to find out the hard way. On June 1, the California Senate voted 23-14 in favor of a bill, the Healthy California Act (SB 562), to authorize the state to act as a “single payer” in place of insurance carriers in negotiating prices with doctors, hospitals and other providers. The measure covers all residents regardless of financial ability or immigration status. Annual costs may reach $400 billion – and that’s just for starters. As existing Medicare and Medicare funds will...

    To talk about the 2018 elections is to hear of a possible Donald Trump backlash carrying Democrats to a House of Representatives majority. While Democrats hope that blue wave washes over Republican districts in Orange County, it’s not yet forecast to reach the Inland Empire, even though the traditionally Republican region has turned purple. “In a remote scenario, we’d have to be talking about a tsunami,” said David Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, which studies and handicaps congressional races. With Trump’s popularity at record lows and the party outside the White House typically gaining seats in mid-term elections,...

    A South Korean company – Simwon America Corp. – has selected Lathrop as the location for its first manufacturing plant in the United States. The auto parts manufacturer is locating in the old Medline Distribution Center on D’Arcy Parkway right in the heart of Lathrop’s commercial and light industrial hub right behind the Tesla Facility. While details about the corporation – which only filed its paperwork with the California Secretary of State last year – are scare, speculation points to their operation potentially supplying Tesla with parts which would make it the first supporting business that has located to the...
