    Democrats expanded California’s Red Flag Law again by lengthening the confiscatory period and broadening the number of people who can push for confiscation to begin with. California’s Red Flag statute is referred to as a Gun Violence Restraining Order. The orders were adopted in 2016, after being pushed as a means of temporarily taking guns away from dangerous people. The confiscatory period was one year when the orders first became law, but the Associated Press reports that Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a bill Friday that allows the confiscatory period to expand to five years. Moreover, the bill signed by...

    The Democratic race for the presidential nomination may be at a turning point as a surging Elizabeth Warren blew by both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in California to take an 8-point lead in the latest tracking poll from the state. This poll is not an outlier. Warren also took the lead in Iowa in the Des Moines Register poll. It appears that Democrats are beginning to shake off worries about "electability" and are embracing the far-left "soak the rich" agenda of the Warren/Sanders wing of the party. The California poll is something of a shocker.

    Kamala Harris has always been known for her lean and hungry, pushy, grabby, ambition, which includes a willingness to sleep her way to the top to get what she wants. Her political start began as a social mountaineer with San Francisco's old-money Pacific Heights set dating from her 20s and then just moved onward and upward. That's not sitting well with California's lizardy old-money senior Senator, Dianne Feinstein, who knows that establishment well. And so, she's taking some action, as Fox News reports: According to reports, Feinstein, the senior senator from the Golden State, will throw a fundraiser next month.

    California lawmakers approved legislation Friday to cap interest rates for consumer loans, a measure that supporters say is designed to blunt predatory lending practices. The bill would cap consumer loan interest rates at 36 percentage points above the main interest rate set by the Federal Reserve, which is currently around 2%. Consumer advocacy groups say some loan companies charge interest rates as high as 225%.

    Several media outlets in California have teamed up with the anti-Second Amendment organization, The Trace, to investigate and write about homemade guns in California. They claim that BATFE sources say 30 percent of guns confiscated in California are homemade. Given there are over 400 million guns in private hands in the United States, and the border between California and other states is porous, and only lightly regulated; it seems an extraordinary number. From An Investigation by NBC Bay Area in partnership with NBC San Diego, NBC Los Angeles, and the non-profit journalists at The Trace found that law...

    It has been less than three months since Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.) and his fans were celebrating him being on the cover of Time magazine just two weeks after he was New York Magazine's flattering cover story. He followed that up with a fundraising win for the second quarter but things have been a bit quiet around him recently. Political fortunes are notoriously fickle but even more so in a presidential primary that features an unprecedented number of candidates. While Mayor Pete is by no means out of this race his polling numbers haven't followed his big cash haul and...

    House Democrats’ official campaign arm spread misinformation in a fundraising blast about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony Wednesday. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) falsely claimed that Mueller testified that he would charge President Donald Trump with obstruction of justice if he weren’t president. During his morning testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller appeared to agree with Democratic California Rep. Ted Lieu, who asserted that Mueller’s office didn’t charge Trump with obstruction because of Department of Justice policies against indicting sitting presidents. But Mueller corrected the record when he began his afternoon testimony in front of the House...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) criticized President Donald Trump’s effort to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall. Bennet said, “The president is acting like we are some weak, pathetic country. We have the ability to treat human beings humanely. We have the ability to lead our hemisphere in a discussion on how to deal with this refugee crisis.” He added, “We are a strong and powerful country. We supposed to lead humanity, not make our border a symbol of nativist hostility. That should be an embarrassment for everybody. The symbol of...
