  • California, at Forefront of Climate Fight, Won’t Back Down to Trump

    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...
  • LAO: California can weather a mild recession. But Trump? TBD

    11/17/2016 2:06:03 PM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 7 replies
    In issuing its annual survey of state finances, the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office has affirmed the wisdom of Gov. Jerry Brown’s push for Proposition 2, the 2014 ballot measure that amended the California Constitution to create a sizable rainy-day fund and set aside money when revenue is free-flowing for use when it dries up. The LAO estimates that if California’s economy continues its modest growth and new spending commitments are not made, the state will end the 2017-18 fiscal year with $11.5 billion in total reserves. Of that amount, $8.7 billion can be used only for future budget emergencies. The...
  • Gov. Jerry Brown sells his Oakland home for a loss

    08/02/2016 2:51:09 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 14 replies
    Gov. Jerry Brown is no longer an Oakland homeowner. The governor and First Lady Anne Gust Brown closed on the sale of their Oakland Hills home last week, completing the journey that began late last year when the first couple moved into the historic governor's mansion in Sacramento. The real estate website Curbed San Francisco reported on Monday that the 4,147-square-foot home closed on July 30 with a sale price of $2.375 million. That's less than the Browns were asking for the home when it went on the market in April, and also slightly less than they reportedly paid for...

    When it came to politics, Jerry Doyle and I disagreed on, well, pretty much everything. Politically, Jerry was just to the right of Attila the Hun. There is a line in Babylon 5 where his character, Michael Garibaldi, suggests that the way to deal with crime is to go from electric chairs to electric bleachers. That line is quintessential Jerry Doyle. I say this with confidence because I overheard him saying it at lunch then stole it for the show. Despite our differences, when Jerry ran for congress as a Republican not long after Babylon 5 ended, I donated to...
  • Success of Jerry Brown, and California, Offers Lesson to National Democrats

    SACRAMENTO — When Bernie Sanders held a rally at an outdoor stadium here the other night, more than 15,000 people turned out in a display of cheering, chanting, singing and cartwheels. Gov. Jerry Brown, the state’s most prominent Democrat, was not there, but he might as well have been. Mr. Sanders’s speech was replete with the kind of to-the-barricades flourishes that have long been part of Mr. Brown’s campaign language. “The political establishment is getting nervous,” Mr. Sanders said. “The corporate establishment is getting nervous. And they should be nervous. Because real change is coming.” As the Democratic presidential primary...
  • Gov. Jerry Brown's sledgehammer fix to California's housing crisis

    05/27/2016 8:40:53 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 24 replies
    Gov. Jerry Brown’s solution to California’s affordable housing crisis is to build, build, build, and not let local politics get in the way. Earlier this month, the governor introduced a bill under which proposed urban housing developments that meet local zoning requirements and reserve some portion of their units for low-income residents would be exempted from any additional environmental or local government review. The governor’s theory is that neighborhood opponents and other parochial interests have consistently blocked or downsized badly needed development projects, leading to a housing crisis in which California's major cities are increasingly unaffordable for most of its...
  • Gov. Jerry Brown's new budget must answer some tough questions

    Every May, governors revise their state budget plans and send a final proposal to the Legislature, a process that's designed to ensure that lawmakers use the most current information on the economy and tax revenues. And it's the economy that will likely take center stage in Friday morning's unveiling of Gov. Jerry Brown's new budget. Revenues collected from personal income taxes missed their target in April by about $1 billion, according to one preliminary analysis. At the same time, Democrats in the Legislature have urged Brown to do more to fund programs for struggling California families . How the governor...
  • Jerry Brown raises California smoking age to 21, tightens vaping rules

    05/05/2016 11:11:45 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 25 replies
    Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday enacted California’s most significant new tobacco regulations in decades, signing laws that will place tight restrictions on use of the increasingly popular e-cigarette and make California the second state to raise its smoking age to 21. Brown signed five closely watched bills, which will also expand smoking restrictions in the workplace and on school properties. California now joins jurisdictions like Hawaii, New York City and San Francisco that have bumped the tobacco-buying age to 21 in an effort to block young people’s route to obtaining tobacco. But Brown vetoed one measure that would have allowed...

    Former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson is not running for state railroad commissioner, and he suggests that Donald Trump has something to do with that. Patterson was one of several high-profile Republicans flirting late last week with a bid for David Porter’s open seat on the three-member Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates oil and gas production. But he removed himself from that discussion on Monday, saying he “has better things to do,” in a statement that also expressed disdain for Trump’s presidential ambitions.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown had some sharp words for environmentalist critics of his proposed Sacramento River water tunnels. On Wednesday, Brown told critics of his $15 billion plan to “shut up, because you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about,” according to the AP. Brown’s office told Sacramento Bee blog Capitol Alert that the governor’s remarks were made in “jest.” But the sharp rebuke highlights the tension surrounding the pricey project, which would send water from the northern part of the state south by using a pair of underground water tunnels to divert water around the Sacramento-San Joaquin River...

    With the new year comes new insane laws from California, making it officially America's Sanctuary State -- treating illegal aliens who broke the law to enter the U.S. as well as law-abiding citizens, protecting illegals from deportation, and putting public safety at grave risk. In October, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), signed eight bills handing special rights to illegal aliens. The controversial legislation includes allowing illegal alien obtain driver's licenses, preventing employers from denying jobs based on "immigration status", and barring state and local law enforcement from detaining illegal aliens when directed by ICE, DHS or Border Patrol. The legislation claims that...

    A convicted murderer who was granted "compassionate release" by state courts, so he could spend his final days with his family, died in prison last week as he was about to receive an order setting him free, his lawyer said. Carl Wade, 66, was serving a sentence of 32 years to life for the fatal shooting of a fellow woodcutter, John Karns, in Lake County in June 1986. The two men shared a trailer home and had a drunken argument and fistfight before the shooting. Wade was classified as disabled in 2007 with severe heart and lung diseases that left...

    The Penn State University sex-abuse scandal certainly seems unique. College-football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky (shown at left) could have been investigated as early as 1995 for abusing young boys, but instead was allowed to commit his crimes for another 10 years. School athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president for business and finance Gary Schultz face charges of lying to a grand jury investigating Sandusky, and university president Graham Spanier has been fired. And even more headline-grabbing, famed head football coach Joe Paterno has also been discharged. While not accused of any criminally actionable behavior, the gridiron legend is...

    Sacramento-Gov. Jerry Brown has a new tax proposal to sell the Legislature: raise levies on some large out-of-state corporations in exchange for new sales-tax exemptions for companies who make products and hire people in California.Under a plan to be unveiled in Sacramento on Thursday, Brown will ask lawmakers to revert state sales tax formulas to the way they were computed before 2009. That would force many large companies that sell their goods in California, but do not employ many Californians, to pay more in sales taxes.The request was part of Brown's original budget plan that was rejected by lawmakers.

As the story noted, Brown has faced some pushback from Republicans, but the piece didn't include the fact that some of the harshest criticism has come from the fourth estate, most notably the Sacramento Bee. An editorial in that paper criticized specific provisions of the contract -

    Politicians, being what they are, tend to have an inflated view of what they can do. Some claim to create jobs while others claim to raise taxes. In truth, they are limited to passing political laws. Once enacted, those laws run into the laws of economics – which have never been repealed and have been largely the same since the beginning of time. The results are often different than those intended – and so it is for Jerry Brown, whose policies fly in the face of economics and Californians are paying the price. Few can doubt the magnitude of the...

    In 1976, a Chicago newspaper columnist wrote that Jerry Brown would get "the moonbeam vote."The writer was Mike Royko, who then started referring to the then-38-year-old Brown as "Gov. Moonbeam." Royko was suggesting that Brown was attracting California's New Age crowd. Brown was a strong supporter of space exploration and many of the earliest statewide green initiatives. Yet he also gained a reputation as a fiscal conservative, refusing many perks that came with the governorship.Royko eventually retracted his statement, and in 1991 in the Chicago Tribune, he called the moniker "null, void and deceased."

    CROW CANYON - Alameda County Sheriff's deputies are trying to find out who sprayed the initials "ALF," along with some other graffiti, first discovered Saturday at a Castro Valley horse boarding ranch. "ALF" could stand for Animal Liberation Front, a group that goes after organizations and corporations they suspect of animal abuse. ALF has been called a terrorist group by the FBI. But Sheriff's Lt. Bill Gaudinier said neither his office nor the FBI have yet connected group members to the vandalism. Sheriff's investigators also have not ruled out involvement by that group. The first example of graffiti was reported...

    I guess I’m sort of glad that the mullahs from Iran have finally outed Tom and Jerry and the real meaning behind their intrepid hijinx, dialogue and Jerry’s episodic escapes from Tom’s sadistic clutches.

    A woman got a 30-day jail sentence for leaving her three young children home alone for several hours while she and her boyfriend attended a videotaping of "The Jerry Springer Show."

The two girls and one boy, all under the age of 4, have been placed in foster homes... Police said Cook left the children alone at a suburban home Oct. 19 while she and her boyfriend went to Chicago for the taping. About five hours later, the two...

    Hall Of Fame Phony By Jason Maoz For those who still — despite nearly three years’ worth of examples that prove the contrary — are inclined to believe that the Democratic party and the mainstream media (but the Monitor repeats itself) are not guilty of crass political maneuvering on the Iraq war, perhaps this week’s column will serve to pierce the fog. Liberal Massachusetts senator and failed presidential candidate John Kerry spoke earlier this month to the Council on Foreign Relations and delivered the now familiar Democratic talking points against the war and for a significant withdrawal of U.S. troops...

    Jerry Falwell and an army of conservative lawyers drew a line in the snow yesterday, warning Boston and other cities: Don’t mess with Christmas. And even before the first volley was fired, City Hall caved. Just after a top lawyer for the conservative Liberty Counsel blasted the Hub’s annual “holiday tree” ceremony, a Menino administration official scrambled to do damage control. “This is a Christmas tree,” Boston Parks Commissioner Toni Pollak insisted about the Nova Scotia spruce the city will light Dec. 1 on historic Boston Common. “It’s definitely a Christmas tree.” However, the city’s official Web site refers to...

    I guess this should be filed in the "Washington Politics" thread ... I'm an African American registered Democrat. I don't mind giving conservative Republicans hell when they deserve it. But unlike many conservative, I don't mind speaking out against my Party when I think they are wrong and encouraging them to do the right thing. Anyway, white liberals are having fits about the article posted below, which was written by me and published on my blog, in Black newspapers across the country, and at the liberal Daily Kos blog. I'm posting the article here because I'd like to have some...

    On Wednesday CBS 60-Minutes II had a former friend and colleague of Col. Jerry Killian suggesting the "Killian memo's were genuine. "They are compatible with the way business was done at the time. They are compatible with the man that I remember Jerry Killian being," says Strong. "I don't see anything in the documents that is discordant with what were the times, what was the situation and what were the people involved." On a Friday Mr. Strong said he did not see anything in the memos that made him think they were forgeries. Mr. Strong noted he's not a...

    Would appear some democrat by the name of coldfeet has made very similar documents as those CBS used. Notice the use use of the superscript in the below sample document. A article on Bush AWOL on that was written in 2000 links to it (a href=>Click Here.) Let me paste a background quote from the page here: As Marty Heldt points out in, a document entitled "Military Biography of George Walker Bush" shows that Bush was subsequently assigned to headquarters in Denver from October 2, 1973 to November 21, 1974. He concludes that Bush was "punished" with 6...

    "Bad Humor" Man Coming To Your Town... came to mine last nite! I happened to see this scary DemoFascist thing drive through my town, Kennebunk, ME, twice last night. Once down at our beach and once near the center of town. No doubt it made its way to Kennebunkport past Walkers Point as well. Only thing missing was gigolo John driving it. It is sponsored/paid for by Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry's. There are actually TWO of these "PantsOnFire"-mobiles driving around. Here's the schedule of where they are going next: I didn't hear anything coming out of it...
