  • DACA Illegal Aliens Praise their ‘Strongest Ally’ Kamala Harris: ‘You’re My Beyoncé’(BARF)

    03/20/2018 8:38:33 AM PDT · by rktman · 4 replies ^ | 3/19/2018 | John Binder
    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), an avid open borders advocate, is praised in the latest edition of American Vogue by illegal aliens for being the illegal alien population’s “strongest ally.” Harris’s new profile in Vogue focuses much of its attention on her fight to give amnesty to the 12 to 30 million illegal aliens currently living in the U.S. – especially those who have been shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
  • Kamala Harris...had special career help from powerful boyfriend.(Sexual bribery?)

    Daily Caller ^ | 09/06/2012 | Charles C. Johnson
    Addressing the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night in Charlotte, N.C., California Attorney General Kamala Harris told a crowd of 20,000 that she wants an “America where opportunity is open to everyone … where everyone plays by the same set of rules.” The first big boost to her career, however, came not because of her legal prowess but because her boyfriend was the (married) California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, who went on to become the mayor of San Francisco.
  • Ex-SF Mayor Suggests GOP Foreign Policy Estab. Wants Trump Impeached

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | 5 Aug 2017 | TONY LEE
    Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown suggested that the Republican foreign policy establishment may want to see President Donald Trump impeached after dining with two of its most prominent members. Last weekend, the legendary California Democrat wrote about a dinner invitation he received from former Secretary of State George Shultz and his wife Charlotte. In his San Francisco Chronicle column, Brown revealed that former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger attended the private dinner along with Michael Bloomberg, California Governor Jerry Brown (and his wife Anne), Tom Steyer, California gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newson (and his wife Jennifer), and San Francisco Mayor Ed...
  • San Francisco Fooled into Voting for $5.8 Billion Pension Spike

    07/04/2017 2:10:52 PM PDT · by Rockitz · 44 replies ^ | 4 Jul 2017 | Chriss W. Street
    A new San Francisco civil grand jury report blames $5.8 billion in unfunded county public pension liabilities on voters not realizing that they were voting for two pension spikes. Despite being Ground Zero for social justice warrior elites, San Franciscans always assumed they would never be ravaged by unions and crony liberal politicians spiking unfunded pensions, because the city’s century-old county charter required a public vote for any enhancement of a government benefit. But when the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued Statements 67 and 68, which required greater public pension liability disclosures by mid-2015, auditors calculated that the national...
  • Willie Brown: Hillary Clinton 'Is Going to Lose'

    Breitbart California ^ | November 9, 2014 | Joel B. Pollak
    Veteran California politician Willie Brown has warned this weekend that presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton "is going to lose" in 2016 "[u]nless there are some serious readjustments to the Democratic operation." Brown made his remarks in his regular column in the San Francisco Chronicle, as he attempted to draw lessons from his party's stunning nationwide losses in the midterm elections. "Everybody keeps asking me, “Why did this happen?’" Brown wrote. "Beats me. When it came to the elections, I was a dreamer who thought the Democrats were going to retain the Senate. Instead, we got walloped." Brown suggested...
  • Willie Brown Bridge Is Falling Down

    Will the California Legislature point a giant middle finger at Bay Area commuters by naming the western span of the Bay Bridge after San Francisco Chronicle columnist Willie Brown even though, as San Francisco's mayor, Brown unconscionably delayed reconstruction of the seismically challenged eastern span and helped drive the project's cost from $1.5 billion to $6.4 billion? Will Sacramento name a bridge after a politician whose antics risked the public safety of his constituents? In June, Assemblyman Isadore Hall III introduced a resolution to name the western span the Willie L. Brown, Jr. Bridge "to honor and commemorate his many...
  • Willie Brown Jr. Academy razed (one of the worst 188 schools in the state)

    What had been one of the lowest-performing, under-enrolled schools in San Francisco was little more than a pile of rubble as workers demolished Willie Brown Jr. Academy in the city's Bayview neighborhood. Loud hydraulic excavators bit off pieces of the few remaining walls still standing last week at the school, which served about 160 students in grades four through eight until June 2011. With blue sky visible above and gaping holes nearby, a paper sign directed visitors to the now-nonexistent counseling office. Soon, the tons of mangled rebar and concrete chunks will be carted off for recycling and the 4-acre...
  • Eastwood's act caught GOP off guard

    09/02/2012 5:13:21 PM PDT · by thecodont · 38 replies
    Clint, did you ever make my day. The two biggest names to show up at the Republican convention were Isaac, whose winds thankfully shortened the giant infomercial, and Clint Eastwood, who stole the show on closing night. Republicans were looking for a big name to get big attention, but, as they say, be careful what you ask for. You recall that Clint did that great commercial for Detroit that aired during the Super Bowl. So the GOP thought, hey, let's do it live, on prime time. What they forgot was that Clint is an actor and that the commercial was...

    As for the Democratic National Convention, it will be the first one I skip since 1960. Let's be honest: It has no mystery, no fights, and it's in Charlotte, N.C., which is about as far off the beaten path - or easy airplane connections - as you can get. And when you get there, there is no shopping. The only thing to buy is bootleg booze.
  • Jim Jones’ Sinister Grip on San Francisco (Peoples Temple Cult Leader Ensnared Harvey Milk, Dems)

    Jim Jones’ sinister grip on San Francisco How the Peoples Temple cult leader ensnared Harvey Milk and other progressive icons “Season of the Witch,” the new book by Salon founder David Talbot, tells the story of the wild and bloody birth of “San Francisco values.” The following excerpt – Part 1 in a three-part series -- recounts one of the darker dramas before the ultimate triumph of those values. Jim Jones, the strange and charismatic leader of Peoples Temple, proved a master at politically wiring San Francisco in the mid-1970s. The driven preacher had begun his climb up the political...
  • The final deal-killer for California’s high-speed rail

    04/30/2012 10:32:40 AM PDT · by Mark Landsbaum · 5 replies
    For the sake of argument, let’s concede the high-speed rail will cost only $68 billion as most recently advertised. Of course, it will cost far more, probably even more than the $98 billion to $117 billion previously estimated, and certainly nowhere close to the $33 billion originally estimated. But let’s give them that. For the sake of argument. And let’s concede, for the sake of argument . . .

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 4/8/12 | Willie Brown
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein was in town this week to help celebrate Muni's 100th birthday. She looked good. Nice, tan suit and fit as a fiddle. After talking with her and taking a look at the state's political landscape, I'm of the opinion that her re-election will be as smooth as a Sunday trolley ride to Fisherman's Wharf. She said so far she has about 26 opponents lined up to run against her. To me, that's no opposition, because none of them has the money, name identification or an issue big enough to seriously take on an incumbent as rooted and...

    . . . So Mitt Romney eked out a win in Iowa. He'll probably win New Hampshire, too, but I can't see him taking South Carolina. In the end, he's likely to get the nomination, but it may not be pretty. Newt Gingrich, for starters, is so bitter over what the establishment did to him in the weeks before the corn state caucuses that his goal now is to defeat whomever the big shots support.The question is going to be: Will Romney consider Rick Santorum for VP? The conservatives will settle for that.

I didn’t go to sleep until 1:30 a.m. I had to make sure I got the lines right.Her timing was exquisite. She didn’t linger with applause, but instead launched into line after line of attack, slipping...

    "Investigative journalists doing their jobs should dig deep, into Pelosi's role in the controversial, $280-million, federal-funded Hunters Point Shipyard affair - in relation to her alleged role as an investor in a real estate investment called PRESIDIO PARTNERS. Look past the fact that the 936-acre site, of which about 443 acres are not polluted - Hunter Point is the largest tract of undeveloped land in San Francisco. Roll Call stated that in early 2004, Murtha “reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the City of San Francisco” and that “Laurence...

    SFChron political reporter Joe Garafoli reports that at Willie Brown's annual pre-election breakfast he criticized the CA democrats' GOTV effort. Brown said, "I do not believe that Jerry Brown has a ground operation." Brown "also wonders if it is a good idea for the Dems to rely so heavily on labor for their ground operation." And dem political consultant Garry South "told the gathering that unless Jerry Brown has a lead of 7 or 8 points going into election day, 'we're in serious trouble.'" Video of Brown's remarks are embedded on the SFChro web site.

    Until Jerry Brown came along, Trice Harvey had offered the worst apology for calling someone a "whore" – and ole Trice wasn't trying to be sincere. Harvey was a Republican assemblyman from Bakersfield in 1994 when Republicans won control of the lower house and thought they could elect a speaker. Willie Brown didn't give up without a fight. Calling in a chit, he persuaded Republican Paul Horcher to vote for him, ensuring the San Francisco Democrat could retain his speakership for a little longer. Harvey denounced Horcher as, what else, a "political whore." Democrats demanded an apology, and Harvey obliged:...

    Former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown blames much of the state's budgeting chaos on weak leadership, inexperience, a lack of collegiality and too much reliance on legislative aides -- all of which might be blamed on the state's 1990 term limits law. He and former Gov. Pete Wilson -- both shown right in a 1992 file photo -- discussed the state's budget problems Thursday at a downtown Sacramento luncheon hosted by the Public Policy Institute of California. Brown, who served as Assembly speaker for nearly 15 years and was an assemblyman for three decades, was a chief target of the term-limits...

    If we as a state want to make a New Year's resolution, I suggest taking a good look at the California we have created. From our out-of-sync tax system to our out-of-control civil service, it's time for politicians to begin an honest dialogue about what we've become. Take the civil service. The system was set up so politicians like me couldn't come in and fire the people (relatives) hired by the guy they beat and replace them with their own friends and relatives. Over the years, however, the civil service system has changed from one that protects jobs to one...
