    The Coach's Team ^ | 3/2/17 | Jerry Todd
    The following brief letter was addressed by California resident and Coach's Team contributor Jerry Todd to State Assemblyman Vince Fong. The content is self-explanatory, just like the mindless, liberal lunacy still embraced by Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown. Vince Fong California State Assembly District 34 Dear Vince, "In his veto message of a series of tax-reduction bills last September, Gov. Jerry Brown explained that “tax breaks are the same as new spending – they both cost the general fund money.” He said such measures should be on the table during budget negotiations, “so that all spending proposals are weighed against each...
  • Here’s how much Gov. Jerry Brown wants to raise the gas tax to fix crumbling roads (GAG!)

    California’s governor and legislative leaders on Wednesday proposed raising $52 billion to fix the state’s roads through a big gasoline tax increase, higher car registration fees and a charge on emission-free vehicles. The 10-year plan would boost gasoline excise taxes for the first time in more than two decades, raising them 12 cents per gallon — a 43 percent increase. The tax would rise automatically with inflation. For the first time, owners of zero emission vehicles would pay a $100 annual fee because they use public roads but don’t pay gasoline taxes that fund highway maintenance. The plan also includes...

    Over sixty percent of California voters went for Hillary Clinton -- a margin of more than 4 million votes over Donald Trump. Since Clinton's defeat, the state seems to have become unhinged over Trump's unexpected election. "Calexit" supporters brag that they will have enough signatures to qualify for a ballot measure calling for California's secession from the United States. Some California officials have talked of the state not remitting its legally obligated tax dollars to the federal government. They talk of expanding its sanctuary cities into an entire sanctuary state that would nullify federal immigration law. Californians also now talk...

    We've been saying for weeks that Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom would more than likely qualify his Ammo Ban ballot initiative for the November Ballot. Now our worst fears are confirmed by the Secretary of State. The Ammo Ban will be decided by voters in the coming election. This just became an all out war. Gavin and his millionaire friends like Michael Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton are going to be coming in at full force to strip you of your Second Amendment rights.  And once it happens in California,it's their goal to bring it to the rest of the country As Gavin himself said, "As...
  • Pro-Life California Pregnancy Centers Must Provide Abortion Information or Face Fines

    Cybercast News Service ^ | January 4, 2016 | 7:32 PM EST | Lauretta Brown
    Pro-life pregnancy centers in California must choose between providing abortion information or paying fines. They face that dilemma after California judges denied multiple requests for preliminary injunctions against a law that went into effect January 1, mandating that all licensed pregnancy centers "disseminate to clients" a message promoting public programs with "free or low-cost access" to abortion and contraceptive services. Pregnancy centers that fail to disseminate this message "are liable for a civil penalty of five hundred dollars ($500) for a first offense and one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each subsequent offense." ...

    A lawmaker in Huntington Park, California, has prompted outrage in the community after tapping two illegal immigrants to serve as commissioners on city advisory boards. CBS Los Angeles reported that first-year City Councilman Jhonny Pineda, himself a documented immigrant to the United States, has appointed Francisco Medina to join the city’s health and education commission and Julian Zatarain to sit on the parks and recreation commission. The move makes Huntington Park the first city in the state to appoint illegal immigrants to city commissions. Pineda, who promised when running for his seat to create more opportunities for illegals, championed the...

    councilman came under fire Monday after he announced he will appoint two immigrants in the United States illegally to local government advisory boards. Jhonny Pineda, a Huntington Park city councilman in southeast Los Angeles County, drew jeers from the crowd at a council meeting when he announced Julian Zatarain, 21, and Francisco Medina, 29, will be joining the parks and recreation commission and the health and education commission, respectively. While some say Pineda, elected in March, is paying political favors through the appointments because both men worked on his campaign, Pineda said he simply trying to give more people a...

    Breitbart ^ | 7 Jul 2015 | Caroline May
    Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) will again introduce legislation targeting sanctuary cities, Breitbart News has learned. Hunter’s bill would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to restrict funding to any state or locality that has in place a law, policy or procedure in contravention of federal immigration law, preventing “state or local law enforcement officials from gathering information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.” The legislation would make those cities with sanctuary policies or laws in place ineligible for State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) funding. SCAAP reimburses states and localities for the cost of...

    Press Democrat ^ | 3 June 2015 | GUY KOVNER
    North Coast state Sen. Mike McGuire’s bill to permanently ban new oil drilling in state waters along the 840-mile California coast was approved by the Senate Wednesday and now moves to the Assembly. Calling the coast a “worldwide wonder,” McGuire, D-Healdsburg, said his bill will protect the natural beauty of the coast, which draws 150 million visitors a year and contributes $40 billion to the state economy. The bill closes a loophole in a 1994 law that banned oil and gas development in state waters, which extend out three miles from shore, but permitted exceptions in cases where state oil...

    Fourteen to one, in favor. That was the Los Angeles City Council vote to raise, over the next five years, the city's minimum wage from $9 an hour to $15. Of course, as Investor's Business Daily tells us, the $15 per hour really is closer to $20. How does it get to $20? Investor's Business Daily says: "Once all the nonwage costs are added, including payroll taxes, paid sick leave and the big one -- ObamaCare's employer mandate -- minimum compensation for a full-time worker could rise as high as $19.28 an hour by 2020, an IBD analysis finds. That...

"I think those ads are disingenuous," said Sen. Ricardo Lara, a Democrat from Bell Gardens. "They serve to further divide us as Californians."

    Los Angeles on Tuesday is set to take a final vote on becoming the latest big U.S. city to endorse a hike in the minimum wage. The City Council is extremely likely to make the move, which has the endorsement of Mayor Eric Garcetti and comes two weeks after a 14-1 preliminary vote on the wage. The vote would bring a $15-an-hour wage by 2020—more than double the current federal minimum. …

    In the battle to save a precious resource a record number of people in the Bay Area are reporting their water-wasting neighbors. The Santa Clara Valley Water District has a program where residents can anonymously report water waste. In April, 900 people reported water wasters. It was the highest number since the district's program to conserve water by reporting water waste started last summer. Residents are able to report water waste through e-mail, phone or using the district's water app. "It's extremely helpful," said Jerry De La Piedra of the Santa Clara Valley Water District.

    The state Senate on Tuesday approved a hotly debated measure that would allow many immigrants in the state illegally to sign up for special healthcare programs that would offer the same benefits as Medi-Cal. State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) said his proposal provides “what we can realistically achieve now” for the estimated 2 million people in the state illegally. “We are talking about our friends. We are talking about our neighbors and our families who are denied basic healthcare in the richest state of this union,” Lara told his colleagues.

    California legislative leaders took a bold step Tuesday toward protecting immigrants living in the country without documentation by backing legislation to offer Medi-Cal and other public services to a population they said they want to help move out of the shadows. The leaders of the California Senate and Assembly joined lawmakers and advocates in announcing the “Immigrants Shape California” legislative package at a press conference in Sacramento, saying the federal government’s inaction on immigration reform forced them to act.
