  • Democrats turning California into a third-world hellhole: Going without electricity edition

    Democrats are turning California into a third-world hellhole without electricity, water, and freedom. Due to Democrats' love for trees, at least 800,000 Californians will be without power for several days. Instead of properly managing California forests to reduce the chances of big fires, Democrats are saying Californians have to go without lights, refrigerators, and air-conditioning. Democrats could also avoid this by not making the power company financially liable for all forest fire damages, but since PG&E is a company, not an illegal alien, the Democrats couldn't care less about doing what's best for California. While they try to blame climate...
  • California passes watered down limits on police in deadly encounters

    The California legislature has been batting around Assembly Bill 392 for most of the year without getting across the finish line. The legislation was crafted in response to “deadly shootings of unarmed black men” in the state and it had originally been billed as one of the toughest use of force laws regulating police activity in the country. But negotiations with law enforcement officials resulted in some changes being made to the language (without which it wouldn’t have passed) and activists are saying it’s too watered down to be effective. (Including some complaints from a very curious choice of people...

    Public schools are reopening for business across America, meaning it's time to get back to reading, writing, arithmetic ... and revolution. As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way. On the first day of classes at Denair Middle School near Modesto, science teacher Luis Davila Alvarado handed out a worksheet from a transgender advocacy group titled "The Gender Unicorn" asking students about their "gender identity," "gender expression" and their sexual and emotional attractions. These are children. And yet the teacher did not ask permission to hand the worksheet out. Most parents were outraged. The school estimated...

    The First Amendment to our Constitution was proposed by the 1788 Virginia ratification convention during its narrow 89 to 79 vote to ratify the Constitution. Virginia's resolution held that the free exercise of religion, right to assembly and free speech could not be canceled, abridged or restrained. These Madisonian principles were eventually ratified by the states on March 1, 1792. Gettysburg College professor Allen C. Guelzo, in his article "Free Speech and Its Present Crisis," appearing in the autumn 2018 edition of City Journal, explores the trials and tribulations associated with the First Amendment. The early attempts to suppress free...

    On July 1, California hiked its gas tax to the highest rate in the country. The gas tax, in particular, is one of the most regressive taxes. It hurts the poorest families in our country the most. Tax increases in California shouldn’t shock anyone, but the craziest part of this plan is that the increase STILL won’t be enough to cover the repairs California needs for roads, bridges and mass transit. Officials are actually considering additional fees on top of the new tax!That’s not how we operated in Florida when I was Governor, and that’s not how any state in our...

    CNS News reports that Democratic lawmakers in California have introduced a bill to allow illegal aliens and non-citizens eligible for leadership positions within state political parties.Melanie Arter reports that "current state law limits noncitizen participation in party politics, but the bill, SB 288, would change that, letting noncitizens, including illegal immigrants like Dreamers, serve as state convention delegates and county committee leaders within the Democratic Party, which will allow them to be involved with party platform and other issues."Supporters say that the proposed legislation is about showing welcoming support for all immigrant groups. We need to continue to send a...

    California has morphed from paradise into a garbage state run by garbage people for their own garbage benefit and amusement. The garbage part is literal once the Sierra Nevada mountains symbolized the state; now, towering heaps of trash and human waste do. Welcome to what the Democrats want for all of America. Just watch your step. Literally. If it were not for the climate, something the liberals in charge of my state have nothing to do with as much as they think they do, it would likely be a nearly empty desert once again. But the sun shines, the...

    As followers of Jesus, we are called to submit to the laws of the land and to honor those in authority. The New Testament is very clear on this (see especially Romans 13:1-7). It is also very clear that there are exceptions to this rule, namely, when the authorities require us to disobey the Lord (see Acts 5:40-42). In that case, with respect, we say, “We must obey God rather than man” (see Acts 4:18-20; 5:29; to be perfectly clear, I’m speaking of non-violent resistance to the law.)That time has come for parents in California. In good conscience, they must say...

    For over six years, California has had a top marginal income tax rate of 13.3 percent, the highest in the nation. About 150,000 households in a state of 40 million people now pay nearly half of the total annual state income tax. The state legislature sold that confiscatory tax rate on the idea that it was a temporary fix and would eventually be phased out. No one believed that. California voters, about 40 percent of whom pay no state income taxes, naturally approved the extension of the high rate by an overwhelming margin. California recently raised gas taxes by 40...

    In 2016, California took yet another significant step in its decades-long quest to become the world’s largest banana republic when then-Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1921, a then-barely-noticed revision to the state’s vote-by-mail procedures. The change was a small but significant one. California, in its infinite wisdom, decided to make the practice of “ballot harvesting” legal. Thus, instead of only relatives or those living in the same household being allowed to legally collect and turn in absentee ballots for voters - as was previously the law - any “third party” can do it, including activist groups, Democratic operatives, or street-corner panhandlers.As a...

    Once again California is at the top of the national news every day. The apocalyptic images of massive wildfires and destroyed towns like Paradise are gone. Now the whole country is watching scenes of tear gas being used against the thousands of illegal immigrants from Central America who are trying to force their way into the United States near San Diego. I hope the people complaining about how Donald Trump is handling this invasion of our southern border are paying attention to the news. They might learn something most of us Californians already know. Unlike most Americans, many of us...

    Two more raging infernos in California have burned an area nearly ten times the size of Washington, D.C. Wildlife and habitats have been torched. Over 8,000 homes and businesses, and nearly the entire town of Paradise, are now ashes and rubble. Cars were partly charred and melted as they escaped the flames, others completely incinerated - sometimes with occupants still inside. Well over 60 people have perished. Over 50,000 are homeless. Hundreds remain missing.President Trump expressed deep support for the thousands of courageous firefighters battling the conflagrations, urged residents to evacuate quickly and expedited disaster assistance to the ravaged communities....

    The midterms are coming up in a couple of weeks, in case you hadn't noticed. I'm living out here in California, but I'm sure the same thing is going on across the country. All the Democrats in federal and statewide races are not running for anything, they're all running against Donald Trump. It's a pretty desperate - and stupid - strategy by the Democrats that's based on their deranged hatred of President Trump. It hard to watch the Dems' illogic. To be against Trump means you have to be against lower income taxes, against an economy growing at 4.2 percent,...

    Sure, she’s always been a little nutty, but over the years House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has gradually shifted from liberal feminist icon to everyone’s batty “a little bit out of it” aunt who knows just enough words-about-political-stuff to be dangerous.So in the spirit of hoping Pelosi is still up for fighting for her old speaker’s gavel come November, here are the five craziest things Nutty Nancy has said in 2018 alone. (Why just this year, you ask? Because I only have one column, not a book!)“A nuclear bomb in your pocket.”Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that it “pays to have a...

    The California Election 2018 primary has come and gone. It was real, and it was spectacular. Yes, I wrote that, as a beleaguered California conservative and Trump supporter. Election results worked out quite well in our favor and for the country as a whole. Was there a blue wave? Nope. More like a trickle, and the results portend a red resurgence of sorts. Perhaps a red wave will finally wash over the country and finish in the Pacific Ocean. For the past 8 years, from the Tea Party wave of 2010 to the present day, I watched with sad dismay...

    Remember the movie, When a Stranger Calls, originally made in 1979 and remade in 2006? Its about a babysitter who it harassed and threatened by a prank caller who ends up in the house the whole time. As a nation, we face a similar situation.There is no military on the planet that can defeat the United States, and no external force who could take us down. But we do face the threat of destruction, internally from liberals and their progressive policies.Not one policy, its more of a death from a thousand cuts scenario, and its hard to believe destruction isnt...

    Freedom of religion and speech are fundamental to American life, and some conservatives warn that a California bill threatens both. "California State Assembly bill would BAN the Bible!" said the April 19 headline on the Oath Keepers website. "Whatever happened to Free Speech and Religious Freedom? Of course, this is the Peoples Republic of California, so such things are to be expected. They are so far down the totalitarian, Globalist path that they are oblivious to any sane, sensible ideas." The controversy is over California bill AB 2943, a measure that puts strict limits on programs that aim to change...

    At one time, California was the envy of America, attracting people from around the nation to move to a state offering opportunity and the chance to pursue ambitious dreams. With scenic beauty, the Pacific Ocean coastline, the major cities of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California recruited entrepreneurs looking for economic growth. As the home of Hollywood and multitudes of celebrities, California presented an enticing potential to enjoylifestyles of the rich and famous. Today, California has become an economic and cultural disaster. The state is home to over 114,000 homeless people, one quarter of the total in the...

    In an attempt to excuse Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf’s outrageous decision to help criminal aliens evade federal authorities, CBS and NBC portrayed the Democrat’s unlawful action as the result of a “feud” with the Trump administration over immigration policy. At least those two networks covered the story, unlike ABC, which has failed to discover the controversy.   “Much more ahead on tonight’s CBS Evening News, including the mayor who defied a federal agency,” anchor Jeff Glor teased Wednesday night. Introducing the report minutes later, he declared: “The battle over sanctuary cities has exploded into a public feud between the...

    California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day by claiming the civil rights leader would have encouraged people to march for the impeachment of President Trump. If MLK was alive today, hed be marching not only for civil rights & protecting voting rights, but to urge Members of Congress to accept their responsibility to save the U.S. from a dangerous man who has no respect for our Constitution & no concern for strengthening our democracy, Waters wrote on Twitter on Monday.
