    Last month, a local California newspaper left more than 19 million voter records exposed online. Gizmodo confirmed this week that the records were compromised during an apparent ransomware attack. The Sacramento Bee said in a statement that a firewall protecting its database was not restored during routine maintenance last month, leaving the 19,501,258 voter files publicly accessible. Additionally, the names, home addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers of 52,873 Sacramento Bee subscribers were compromised. “We take this incident seriously and have begun efforts to notify each of the individuals on the contact list and to provide them resources to help...

    Targeted, Funded and Organized Protests Against Republicans The harpy fishwives on the Sacramento Bee editorial board, and shameless editorial boor Dan Morain, wrote an editorial Monday disputing the nature of the protest outside Republican Rep. Tom McClintock’s Townhall meeting held on Saturday in Roseville (”That’s not anarchy, Rep. McClintock, it’s democracy,”Feb. 6, 2017). McClintock described the large crowd of protestors as “anarchists” who had gathered to “disrupt” his meeting—which is exactly what happened. But the Bee fishwives said, “only if by “anarchists’ you mean ‘neighbors and grandparents.’” The fishwives and especially Morain, have been historically critical of McClintock just for...

    WASHINGTON - As Hillary Clinton campaigned with Elizabeth Warren for the first time Monday, the joint appearance raised the question: Is America ready for two women on a presidential ticket? Clinton is, of course, the first woman ever to clinch a major-party nomination for president. And she’s considering adding a second woman to the ticket, with Warren, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts, as a running mate. “There is a wow factor to having two women on the ticket,” said Jim Hodges, a former governor of South Carolina and a Clinton ally who urged the campaign to select a woman. “It’s...

    The Sacramento Bee ^ | June 14th, 2016 | By Tyler Foggatt
    Sacramento’s religious community Tuesday roundly denounced a Natomas pastor who praised the Orlando massacre for eliminating “sodomites.” The 45-minute sermon Sunday by Roger Jimenez, pastor of a tiny church in a South Natomas office park, had gone viral by Tuesday morning, drawing condemnation around the nation. YouTube took down a video of the sermon, saying it violated the site’s ban on hate speech. But another copy was quickly posted. Jimenez of Verity Baptist Church spoke to reporters briefly Tuesday morning outside his house on River Run Circle in South Natomas. He said he would not back down from his Sunday...

    REDDING Presidential candidate Donald Trump said Bill and Hillary Clinton “hate” President Barack Obama during a sweltering campaign stop here Friday. “Hillary hates Obama, you know that? She has hated him for years,” Trump said. He argued the couple is only pretending to like the president to avoid prosecution for Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. “Hillary Clinton will do anything (Obama) says,” Trump said. “You want to know why? She doesn’t want to go to jail.” Hundreds eager to hear Trump’s remarks gathered hours before the rally, chatting excitedly and sporting red “Make...

    In this year of political rage, one aspect that baffles me somewhat is the absolute, electrified, apoplectic, blurred-vision hatred of Hillary Clinton. Nor do I get the similar outrage expressed about President Barack Obama, who in Comment Section World makes Donald Trump look like a lovable Disney character. I can only ascribe this Rage Against the Clinton Machine to misogyny. Yeah. I said it (send enraged emails to my boss, Dan Morain at Looking back on political figures, I can truly say that there are only a handful of people I could really get vein-popping angry about. â–ª Sarah...

    Every American has the right to make his or her voice heard. Sadly, 50 years after the passage of the nation’s most important voting law, the 1965 Voting Rights Act, millions of Americans continue to be silenced at the voting booth because of a deadly one-two punch to our democracy – attacks on voting rights and an explosion of unlimited political spending in our elections.

    The final night of session is crunch time in the California Legislature: Ambitious new alternative energy goals are adopted. Landmark medical marijuana regulation is pushed through. Donald Trump is denounced. In the waning minutes before the Senate adjourned for the year, Democrats adopted a resolution condemning the Republican presidential frontrunner’s views on immigration and calling on Californians to divest from his many business enterprises.
  • Jerry Brown to Environmentalist Water Tunnel Critics: ‘Shut Up’

    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...

        Leftist McClatchy (Fresno Bee, Sacramento Bee), routinely trumpets the Demogoguecrat line about "The War on Women". Then look at their online ad policy in action, putting their money where their mouth is. These ads are demeaning to all women and to everyone who cherishes a Mom, Wife, Sister or Daughter I tried to read a serious article about Hillary Clinton, whom the McClatchy Editorial Board has supported in the past. This despite Secretary Clinton's persecution of Kathleen Wiley, Paula Jones and a whole host of other victims of Bubba's serial groping.   You'd think that the Bee chain...

    Sacramento Bee ^ | April 8, 2014 | By Lindsay Wise and David Lightman
    A Democratic blitz this week for new orders and laws promising equal pay for women is a key agenda item the party hopes will boost turnout this fall among its most loyal voters. President Barack Obama signed two executive actions, which will bar federal contractors from retaliating against employees for comparing salaries and require contractors to report compensation data to the government by gender and race. A McClatchy analysis in January found that women employees at the White House make 91 cents for every dollar men make. The female share of the federal workforce also has declined under Obama, while...

    For weeks now, the nation has been riveted by arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court over one provision of the Affordable Care Act. Does the law's requirement that every adult buy health insurance violate the U.S. Constitution? We think it does not. Yet even if the court ultimately shares that view, the federal health care reform law will face monumental hurdles to be successfully implemented. The biggest of these is its cost. Can the nation afford to insure all its citizens? If we don't get a handle on rising health care costs the answer to that more important question is...

    Editorial: Do GOP senators value no-tax vow more than their oath of office? Feb. 18, 2009 For observers outside the Capitol bubble, California's free-fall toward the abyss must seem baffling. For weeks, lawmakers have known the state was running out of money. The governor and others have warned that, without a fix in the current-year budget, the state would be forced to lay off state employees and suspend infrastructure projects, putting more people out of work.

    SAN FRANCISCO -- California Attorney General Jerry Brown has changed his position with respect to the state's new same-sex marriage ban and is now urging the state Supreme Court to void Proposition 8. Brown filed a brief Friday saying the measure, which amended the California Constitution to limit marriage to a man and a woman, is itself unconstitutional because it deprives gay couples of a fundamental right.

    But Republicans accused Democrats of subverting the will of voters and setting a historic precedent for raising taxes in California, calling the maneuver "stunningly cynical." They warned that Democrats would soon increase other fees to make up for budget shortfalls if they are successful in their majority-vote plan. "This is a very historic day," said Senate Republican Leader Dave Cogdill, of Modesto. "Certainly we've been a long time coming to this point where we have reached such frustration with the laws of this state, with the people and their will as it relates to how taxes should be raised, that...
