    "Californians are tired of partisanship and government dysfunction," New Way California says. This is true. But pandering to the left, which has run the once-Golden State into the ground, is no way to effect change An odd group of Republican centrists and has-beens formed New Way California earlier this year. They claim New Way is needed because they are “committed to policies that increase opportunities for all Californians.” As the Los Angeles Times explains in Schwarzenegger and Kasich back Republicans looking for a ‘new way’ for California’s party, Chad Mayes “started it after he stepped down as the leader of...

    “You stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fan boy,” Schwarzenegger said in a Twitter video directed at Trump. “I was asking myself when you are going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that.” Schwarzenegger in the 45-second video accuses Trump of attacking the intelligence community and the Justice Department by refusing to denounce Russian interference in the 2016 election. “You’re the president of the United States. You shouldn’t do that,” Schwarzenegger said. “What’s the matter with you?” Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, then questioned what happened to the “strong...

    In a Facebook video posted on Thursday by the media company ATTN, the former Governor of California, who is a big supporter of environmental issues says that Trump's policies will be "a threat to future generations." Not only does he reference the Terminator but also make as a very apt analogy using Netflix and Blockbusters. Speaking to a Trump bobblehead, the 70-year-old Austrian says: "So, President Trump, I know you really want to be an action hero, right? So take it from the Terminator, you're only supposed to go back in time to protect future generations. But your administration attempts...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger, who once famously warned Republicans that they were “dying at the box office,” has decided not to support either of the leading GOP candidates for California governor, a spokesman said on Friday. The former governor’s decision to speak out against the candidacies of John Cox, a Rancho Sante Fe businessman, and Travis Allen, an Orange County legislator, stands in sharp contrast to his past refusals to weigh in on those who have followed him into office. “They will not get his vote,” said spokesman Daniel Ketchell. Schwarzenegger’s decision was based on the candidates' past statements about climate change,...

    In another jab to President Trump's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head, actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) labeled Scott Pruitt the worst EPA administrator of all time. "I pay no attention to what he says. He cannot be taken seriously," Schwarzenegger said at the R20 Austrian World Summit, an annual climate conference he hosts in his home country. "He's the worst Environmental secretary that we have ever had." Schwarzenegger went on to criticize Pruitt for his ties to oil and gas companies. “He's doing the bidding for the oil companies and the coal companies," the 70-year-old Republican told...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger has undergone emergency open-heart surgery ... TMZ has learned. Sources connected to Arnold tell TMZ, the 70-year-old Schwarzenegger went to Cedars-Sinai Thursday for a catheter valve replacement. We're told the surgery is somewhat experimental and he developed complications. Doctors were prepared in case the catheter valve replacement failed ... and quickly decided Arnold needed emergency open-heart surgery, which we're told lasted several hours. This is not the first time Arnold has gone under the knife for heart surgery. He had an aortic valve replaced in 1997. At the time doctors didn't feel the procedure was urgently needed, but...

    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told CNN's Michael Smerconish that he believes Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich could be "a great alternative" to President Donald Trump if the President fails to deliver on his promises. "People are going to judge the President before they go to the polls by his performance," Schwarzenegger, who is a Republican, said in an interview. "If Trump does a great job, then there's no reason to replace him. But what I'm saying is that John Kasich is a great alternative should he (Trump) not perform, because we don't know yet. We are only one year...

    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that wealthy donors should “starve” the Republican Party of funds until it moves in the liberal ideological direction that he, and they, desire. The Fresno Bee reports: “The people that are funding the Republican Party should turn off their financial support, because that would starve the party, and I think they would then maybe come to their senses,” Schwarzenegger told a crowd at the launch event for his centrist Republican advocacy group New Way California. “You better go and lead and tell your people around you that we’ve got to change, because that’s...

    Street artist Sabo plastered California buildings and benches with fake movie posters featuring actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and disgraced mega-producer Harvey Weinstein standing next to each other, a near-mirror image of the film art for Schwarzenegger’s 1988 comedy classic Twins. The faux film posters see the former California governor wearing a “No Fossil Fuels” pin, while Weinstein (like Danny DeVito, much shorter in stature and leaning on Schwarzenegger) dons a “No NRA” button — a nod to Weinstein’s October pledge to “channel [his] anger” at the NRA. Blaring at the bottom of the posters are the anti-sexual harassment hashtag “#MeToo,” and...

    Climate change expert Arnold Schwarzenegger recently declared that he will be suing oil companies for murder because use of their product is warming the planet. Here's a better idea: Thank the oil industry for contributing to unprecedented prosperity around the world. Speaking to Politico during the SXSW festival in Texas, Schwarzenegger said that he will be mounting a lawsuit against oil companies "for knowingly killing people all over the world." "This is no different from the smoking issue," Schwarzenegger said. "The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because...

    Former Cailfornia governor Arnold Schwarzenegger made a rare return to Sacramento last Thursday and declared that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt needed to be fired. The Los Angeles Times reported that it was Schwarzenegger’s second dig at Pruitt in less than a week (original links): “He is without any doubt the wrong person at that place,” former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said. “He does not represent the people. He only represents the special interests. He should be removed immediately.” Schwarzenegger was in Sacramento to meet with seven state Assembly Republicans who support environmental protection policies. Last month, the former...

    In the context of an administration that has pushed more radical positions on issues such as immigration and climate change, Schwarzenegger will now be stepping up his political activism once more. "Arnold is very excited for New Way," Ketchell said. Tuesday's press conference with Mayes and Republican Assemblymember Rocky Chavez from San Diego was thin on details. Mayes office was unable to publicly confirm any additional members of the new coalition and remained general when it came to its objectives. “There’s so many people in California who feel like they have no place to go,” Mayes said to reporters. "The...

    Government watchdog group Common Cause has rescinded an award scheduled to be presented tonight to Arnold Schwarzenegger following an outcry over past sexual harassment allegations made against him. The group was scheduled to honor the former California governor with the “We the People Award” for his work on gerrymandering reform at the awards dinner at LA’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. In a statement, the organization said “former Governor Schwarzenegger does not want to be a distraction to the ongoing important democracy work of Common Cause,” adding he would not be attending tonight’s event and the organization would not be giving him...

    Schwarzenegger: Let's slap a public health warning on fossil fuels Megan Rowling 5 Min Read BONN, Germany, Nov 12 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Arnold Schwarzenegger, former California governor and Hollywood actor and film producer, issued a challenge on Sunday to governments to start labelling fossil fuels with a public health warning that their use could cause illness and death. He lauded the World Health Organization (WHO) for sealing a 164-nation tobacco control pact in 2003 that led to consumers of cigarettes and cigars being alerted to the health risks of smoking, including lung cancer. A similar accord could be put...

    President Donald Trump’s decision to part ways with Steve Bannon can be understood as an effort to save his presidency after Charlottesville. It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger. ... Bannon was not just Trump’s master strategist, the man who turned a failing campaign around in August 2016 and led one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in political history. He was also the conservative spine of the administration. His infamous whiteboard in the West Wing listed the promises Trump had made to the voters,...

    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger urged people from both ends of the political spectrum to join a “crusade” to save the planet, after a Friday meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron. “It is absolutely imperative that we not make it a political issue,” he said. “This is not the right versus the left because there is no liberal air or conservative air. We all breathe the same air. There is no liberal water or conservative water; we all drink the same water,” the star of “The Terminator” movies said. …

    Arnold Schwarzenegger has four Hummers and likes nothing better than getting up at 5am to ride his Harley Davidson to the beach for breakfast. Yet "The Terminator" star insists that should not stop him being an environmental evangelist. "Saving the planet is also about technology," the former California governor told AFP, putting his foot on a chair and wagging a skull-ringed finger to make his point. Three of his Hummers run on hydrogen, vegetable oil and bio-diesel and he's hoping to put an electric engine into the fourth. "You know one day soon we are going to have hydrogen-fuelled planes....

    It's been two weeks since George H.W.

"Had lunch with two of the greatest Americans," Schwarzenegger tweeted, along with the photo. "President Bush & Barbara have helped me, mentored me and inspired me to enter public service."

    Arnold Schwarzenegger took another shot at Donald Trump in a CNN interview recently, calling the president’s remarks at February’s National Prayer Breakfast “funny.” Trump lambasted the former California governor — who took over as host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” — for sagging ratings last season. At the annual prayer breakfast, Trump slammed Schwarzenegger’s hosting stint as “a total disaster,” going on to request prayer for the show’s ratings.
