  • 6 New Gun Control Laws Enacted In California, As Gov. Brown Signs Bills

    National Public Radio ^ | July 1, 2016 | Bill Chappell
    Gov. Jerry Brown has signed new gun control legislation for California, enacting bills that limit magazine capacity to 10 bullets; require a background check for those purchasing ammunition; and restrict the lending of firearms, among other effects. In signing the bills, Brown said he wants "to enhance public safety by tightening our existing laws in a responsible and focused manner, while protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners." Two of the bills close the "bullet button loophole," as member station KPCC reports: "The loophole refers to the sale of 'California legal' firearms that don't fall under California's ban of guns...

    Enthusiasm for Warren is artificially amplified by a sympathetic media echo chamber. This phenomenon is not unlike Huntsman ’12… (SNIP) I know what you’re thinking: Warren beat Brown. Scott Brown out-campaigned Warren in MA Senate ’12– and would have won, were it not for 3 factors out of his control… (SNIP) Despite Obama’s landslide victory (61-38), Warren won by a narrow margin: 53-47, meaning a significant number of Obama voters defected to Brown.

    The meltdown of Californias cap-and-trade system of reducing carbon emissions has not only thrown its climate change crusade into disarray but caused collateral damage. One victim is Gov. Jerry Browns $3.1 billion plan to spend auction proceeds, now on indefinite hold. It not only affects a $500 million allocation for Browns bullet train project, but another $500 million for low carbon transportation and fuels. The latter is a centerpiece of Browns very ambitious drive to reduce petroleum use in auto travel the largest single source of Californias carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030 even though the Legislature...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indiana truck driver was sentenced Friday to more than 13 years in prison for what prosecutors said was a plot to sell U.S. intelligence secrets to Saddam Hussein's Iraqi regime. "I am not a bad man," Shaaban Hafiz Ahmad Ali Shaaban told U.S. District Court Judge John D. Tinder during his sentencing hearing. "I help this country a lot. ... I came to live in peace." Assistant U.S. Attorney Sharon Jackson said Shaaban was putting up a front in maintaining his innocence. "This defendant is a man without a conscience. Mr. Shaaban has no allegiance to this...

    SACRAMENTO When Bernie Sanders held a rally at an outdoor stadium here the other night, more than 15,000 people turned out in a display of cheering, chanting, singing and cartwheels. Gov. Jerry Brown, the states most prominent Democrat, was not there, but he might as well have been. Mr. Sanderss speech was replete with the kind of to-the-barricades flourishes that have long been part of Mr. Browns campaign language. The political establishment is getting nervous, Mr. Sanders said. The corporate establishment is getting nervous. And they should be nervous. Because real change is coming.

  • Gov. Jerry Brown's sledgehammer fix to California's housing crisis

    05/27/2016 8:40:53 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 24 replies
    Gov. Jerry Browns solution to Californias affordable housing crisis is to build, build, build, and not let local politics get in the way. Earlier this month, the governor introduced a bill under which proposed urban housing developments that meet local zoning requirements and reserve some portion of their units for low-income residents would be exempted from any additional environmental or local government review. The governors theory is that neighborhood opponents and other parochial interests have consistently blocked or downsized badly needed development projects, leading to a housing crisis in which California's major cities are increasingly unaffordable for most of its...

The Coalition, which is composed of more than 100 local, state and national organizations, claims the colleges have the lowest acceptance rate for Asian Americans, and maintain quotas for the (racial) group. It also points out that Asian-American enrollment at Yale has declined despite the number of college-aged Asian-Americans more than doubling since 2011. This is the first such...

    Those who view college as little more than expensive day-care just got some new evidence. "Even some of Brown's coddling administrators had to shake their heads at the student response to a debate between leftist feminist Jessica Valenti and libertarian Wendy McElroy," David French writes in the May 23, 2016 issue of National Review. "A campus debate is usually a tame-enough event, but this debate would deal with the alleged campus-rape crisis, and McElroy was expected to depart from the college orthodoxy and dissent from the myth that women at American universities are uniquely in danger of being raped."

    Every May, governors revise their state budget plans and send a final proposal to the Legislature, a process that's designed to ensure that lawmakers use the most current information on the economy and tax revenues. And it's the economy that will likely take center stage in Friday morning's unveiling of Gov. Jerry Brown's new budget. Revenues collected from personal income taxes missed their target in April by about $1 billion, according to one preliminary analysis. At the same time, Democrats in the Legislature have urged Brown to do more to fund programs for struggling California families . How the governor...

    Gov.

Brown signed five closely watched bills, which will also expand smoking restrictions in the workplace and on school properties. California now joins jurisdictions like Hawaii, New York City and San Francisco that have bumped the tobacco-buying age to 21 in an effort to block young peoples route to obtaining tobacco.

    Senate Democrats have unveiled legislation to alleviate Puerto Ricos debt woes, urging that the island be allowed to declare bankruptcy on all of its debt. The bill, released Monday, would allow the U.S. territory to restructure its $72 billion in outstanding debt and create a fiscal oversight board for the island. For the 3.5 million American citizens living on the island of Puerto Rico, time is running short, said Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), one of the bills sponsors. Congress has to act immediately to fix the federal funding shortfalls and give Puerto Rico the tools it needs to fully restructure...

They also say it wouldn't actually reduce carbon dioxide emissions, according to communications released to The Oregonian/OregonLive in response to a public records request.

    Sen. John McCain is right. Code Pink protesters are low-life scum as he called them Thursday morning when the group disrupted a Senate hearing to protest former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khamenei, Fidel Castro, Raul Castro, al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Taliban. These are some of the terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism Code Pink has given political, financial and/or material aid to since the groups founding in late 2002.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown announced Thursday that he will travel to Vatican City later this month to discuss climate change and modern slavery with dignitaries including Pope Francis as the governor seeks to burnish his legacy as a climate change activist. Brown, a former Jesuit seminarian, plans to attend a two-day event starting July 21 hosted by the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences. The focus is on two issues highlighted in the pope's recent teaching document, called an encyclical, in which he chastised international lawmakers for failing to adopt effective, long-term policies that would protect the environment and...

    --SNIP-- Three months ago, Browns Department of Transportation, fulfilling a 2009 legislative mandate, began circulating a draft of a California Transportation Plan, aimed at setting policy for the next quarter-century. Citing Californias commitments to reducing greenhouse gases and improving access to non-automotive transportation, the CTP proposes to reduce automotive travel by increasing motorists taxes, flatly rejecting road capacity enhancing strategies, and urging the state to avoid funding projects that add road capacity. Implicitly, therefore, it contends that increasing traffic congestion and the cost of driving would compel Californians to abandon their cars in favor of transit, bicycles and other non-automotive...

    Back in 1995 Philip Howard published a book called "The Death of Common Sense." It was about government smothering people with regulations. Today we might write another book- The Death of Personal Responsibility. Personal responsibility has been murdered- smothered by the same liberals who ended the life of common sense. In what has to be a monumental embarrassment, it has been disclosed that Rachel Dolezal, the head of the Spokane NAACP, is as white as Barack Obama's mother. Dolezal's father said that she is "clearly as white as we are." Rachel's mom added "She has not explained to us...

    An unusual schism has opened up on Californias politically dominant left flank, where Gov. Jerry Brown, a longtime favorite of the states environmentalists, has refused to give in to the climate change movements demand for a statewide ban on hydraulic fracturing. His stance comes despite the growing clamor in the aftermath of fellow Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomos decision in December to allow a similar statewide ban of the revolutionary oil and gas drilling technique in New York. Hollywood stars and environmental activists badly want California to be next. The irony, of course, is that there may be no greener governor...
