  • California forced to give back $331 million stolen from home-owners

    What if the bluest state in the country stole a third of a billion dollars from victims of chicanery and the media refused to notice?    I have been stunned at the lack of media coverage of California’s foiled robbery of almost a third of a billion dollars. That’s right: under Governor Jerry Brown, the Great State of California helped itself to hundreds of millions of dollars – money that was supposed to go to home owners, and you probably didn’t hear about it. Bib Egelko of the San Francisco Chronicle was one of the few to cover this...

    Lawsuit Hearing To Remove Xavier Becerra as California Attorney General Should the powerful be allowed to ignore or change the laws they dont agree with? Of course not. But that issue is at the heart of a lawsuit filed in May by former Attorney General candidate Eric Early against the unelected, appointed California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is running to keep his office. The case was heard Friday morning in Sacramento Superior Court. When Becerra filed his election paperwork with the California Secretary of State, he represented that he was qualified for the position of Attorney General. However, according...

    Governor Brown's aberrant style of leadership has been as maniacal as a third-World dictator, and his legacy is a complete and total failure, tainted by frequent lunatic ravings. Food or Fish, Liberty or Oppression, Victim or Fighter? We Californians have many decisions to make about our future, thanks to our maniacal third-World wanna-be dictator-Governor Jerry Browna childless Marxist, who cares only about himself. Brown has never lived a life that calls upon one to sacrifice for the benefit of ones own family and children. And it shows. The narcissistic manic Gov. Jerry Brown, Californias four-term Democratic Governor is mostly responsible...

    Forbes ^ | July 6, 2018 | Patrick Gleason
    According to new research released by Charles Varner, associate director of the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, California lost an estimated 138 high-income individuals following passage of the Proposition 30 income tax increase championed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and approved by Golden State voters in 2012. This new research by Varner updates a previous paper released six years ago that looked at domestic migration to and from California following a 2004 income tax hike. One reason we wanted to update our previous paper is that this tax change in 2012 is the largest state tax change that we...

    A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Friday refused to overturn Gov. Jerry Browns decision denying parole to former Charles Manson follower and convicted killer Leslie Van Houten. In his ruling, Judge William C. Ryan said there was some evidence to support Browns decision in refusing to release Leslie Van Houten, 68, who in 1971 was found guilty of taking part in the brutal killings of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca in Los Angeles. If released, Ryan found that Van Houten would pose an unreasonable risk of danger to society. Ryan said the brutal and terrorizing manner in which Van...

    In the California central valley, much of America's breadbasket has been reduced to a dustbowl by destructive leftist politics which shut off water to farmers. Is the historic Delta Region next just so Jerry Brown can have his pathetic legacy? Last weekend as my husband and I were enjoying vin rouge and fromage at one of our favorite Delta wineries in Clarksburg, CA, we discussed Gov. Jerry Browns proposed Delta Tunnels project, and how it would destroy the historical, rich agricultural region. Some of our favorite wineries, and all of the Delta agriculture could end up under water and/or the...

    A homeless man who was arrested last month after breaking into California Gov. Jerry Brown's home in Sacramento reportedly said he only tried entering the mansion because he figured the sanctuary state politician was "an open-door policy kind of guy." The California Highway Patrol said 51-year-old Steven Seeley was arrested April 19 and treated at a hospital for cuts he received while breaking a window to get out of the home in downtown Sacramento, located about 10 blocks from the Capitol. In an interview with KCRA-TV on Sunday, Seeley claimed he heard what sounded like a large cat roaring nearby,...

    California's secession movement will get a second try as the state's "war" against the Trump administration rages on several fronts. On Monday, the California Secretary of State's Office announced that a secession ballot proposal has been cleared to begin gathering needed signatures. It comes amid other efforts that seek to split up California "Calexit is left we are progressive, and that's why we don't like Trump," said Marcus Ruiz Evans, one of the leaders of the Yes California campaign seeking California independence. "But there are some very hardcore Republican concepts to Calexit, including the group saying don't waste our...

    (CNSNews.com) - California Gov. Jerry Brown predicted that if carbon emissions arent reduced, billions of people will die from heat events, and one billion will be subjected to vector diseases. When you pick up the paper or turn on cable news, youd think its another planet. Its all about the nonsense of Washington, and carbon emissions are growing, and weve got to radically turn that around, or the migrations youre seeing now are going to be childs play, Brown told reporters Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Were going to have widespread disruption, more conflicts, more terrorism,...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday defended his decision last month to pardon five criminal illegal aliens facing deportation, saying he makes no apologies. ... Brown pardoned two Cambodian refugees - one of whom was convicted of domestic violence and the other for drug possession. He also pardoned Daniel Maher, who was convicted of kidnapping and robbery using a firearm; Sergio Mena, who was sentenced in 2003 for drug possession; and Acevedo Alaniz, who was served five months for vehicle theft. Trump criticized the move in a March 31 tweet, saying, Governor Jerry Moonbeam Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens...

    VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) -- A man was stabbed in the neck while holding his young daughter on his lap while dining at a restaurant on the Ventura Promenade. Ventura police received multiple calls around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday about a stabbing at the Aloha Steakhouse at 364 S. California St. Police said the victim and his wife were having dinner along with their 5-year-old daughter at the time of the attack, which appeared to be unprovoked. Investigators said there was no altercation or contact prior to the attack, and the victim and suspect did not appear to know each other. When...

    President Trump warned California Gov. Jerry Brown that hell cut off federal funding for the deployment of Californias National Guard if the governor insists that the troops do nothing instead of enforcing immigration laws. Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy up to 400 National Guard Troops to do nothing, Mr. Trump tweeted. The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Browns charade. We need border security and action, not words! Mr. Brown mobilized 400 National Guard members Wednesday to fight gangs and smugglers as part of the presidents efforts...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown's visit to the nation's capital resulted in a war of words with Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins. Jenkins confronted the Democratic governor at his National Press Club event for his state's sanctuary city policies. The reporter had evidence to suggest the sanctuary status has endangered communities. Do critics have a point by suggesting sanctuary city laws "favor the rights of criminal illegal aliens over the rights and the safety of those communities," Jenkins asked . In Brown's defensive answer, he seemed to suggest that Fox News were the first ones to make such a claim....

The feds are going to audit Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s high speed rail project, and, if the audit is conducted honestly, will likely conclude that it is time to cut off funding for the single biggest boondoggle in American history. Yes, dear readers, it isn’t bad enough that California’s utterly corrupt Democrat political class has already wasted billions of Californians’ dollars on this high-speed rail pipe dream, they’ve also already wasted $3.5 billion federal dollars, and are planning on wasting...

    It seems a little churlish to prod Jerry Brown on carbon issues. He's done as much as any leader in the world to move forward on the climate and energy crises that are the defining challenges of our time. All of California's environmental measures have been aimed at reducing the demand for energy, and none at slowing down the production of fossil fuel. Supply and demand are two equal halves of this fight; if we don't recognize that fact we simply will not solve the climate conundrum. With his time in elective office winding down, Brown has the rare chance...

    Read Gov. Brown's full letter below. Dear Secretary Nielsen and Secretary Mattis: Pursuant to your request, the California National Guard will accept federal funding to add approximately 400 Guard members statewide to supplement the staffing of its ongoing program to combat transnational crime. This program is currently staffed by 250 personnel statewide, including 55 at the California border. Your funding for new staffing will allow the Guard to do what it does best: support operations targeting transnational criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers along the border, the coast and throughout the state. Combating these criminal threats...
