  • Trump endorses Republican businessman John Cox for California governor

    President Trump endorsed GOP California gubernatorial candidate and businessman John Cox on Friday, days after Cox said he was remorseful he did not vote for Trump in the 2016 election because he wasn’t sure if Trump was a conservative. ...snip Cox and Orange County Assemblyman Travis Allen, both Republicans, are seeing to woo enough voters for the June 5 primary in order to gain one of two spots in the November general election. In the event Republicans fail to garner enough support, two Democrats could go head-to-head. Cox has already attracted the support of GOP leadership, including U.S. House Majority...

    A state board in California has approved a proposal to require solar panels on all new homes beginning in 2020, a measure that would increase the cost of new construction but provide savings on utilities — and help the state meet ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. California, which is routinely a leader in environmental regulatory efforts, would be the first state in the country with such a requirement. Several cities, including San Francisco and South Miami, Fla., have residential solar panel requirements. The new rule in California would cover all low-rise residential buildings, although houses that are frequently...

    At first look, the city of Long Beach and county of Fresno could not seem any more different. But whether you’re a farmworker or an urban worker, there’s one struggle many people in our districts share: the human cost of being undocumented and uninsured. One in 10 California workers is undocumented, and one in six children in our state has a parent who is undocumented. Ensuring healthcare coverage for all Californians not only strengthens the health of our state’s workforce, but will move the entire state forward. Immigrants play a vital role in all aspects of California’s social, economic, and...

    Junkies have been filmed openly shooting up in a San Francisco subway station amid piles of vomit and unconscious bodies. Commuter Shannon Gafford recorded the disturbing video at the Civic Center BART station, saying he sees the same thing every day. BART managers point to a national homeless and opiate crises as the cause of the problem, saying they are simply 'overwhelmed' by the amount of drug use.

    Matthew Blake reports for Los Angeles Business Journal that on April 17, 2018, a bill to extend California’s motion picture tax credit program sailed through a state Assembly committee without opposition. Do California’s taxpayers know that they’re 'subsidizing' America-hating, anti-Second Amendment, pro-abortion, corrupt and debauched Hollywood the tune of $330 million a year?

    Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region. According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island. “The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in...

    As president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau, Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to promote San Francisco. You’d think he’d be hyping the city’s gorgeous vistas, top-notch restaurants and glorious museums. Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft.

    California’s never ending housing crisis has led to a consistent domestic outmigration with a net of about 100,000 people every year leaving the state year after year, most of whom settle in Texas. This will likely result in California losing Congressional seats for the first time in its history once the results of the 2020 census are tallied. Further, California’s soaring unfunded pension liabilities to its all-powerful government labor unions are at least $477 billion with the annual shortfall to fund the pensions hitting about $5.4 billion a year by 2024—swamping rosy claims of a state budget surplus. Lastly, California’s...

    An 8-year-old girl called 911 from the backseat of her father's stolen car so authorities could rescue her and her little brother, according to a report by KFMB. The woman stole the car out of a parking lot while the kids were sitting in the backseat waiting for their father. The carjacker headed straight for the border but Homeland Security spotted the car at the last United States exit before she crossed into Mexico.

    If you don’t think Socialism exists in the U.S., it’s to wake up. College campuses are havens for Socialist activity, and one California college — go figure — is actively supporting it. California-based Scripps College will be hosting a Socialist love-fest with actual members of Venezuela’s Socialist government. They will talk about the joys of starving people and making people who disagree with the government disappear. Okay, they’re not going to say it like that, but you get the idea. The speakers — as well as the college — will paint Socialism with a democracy paintbrush and call it art....

    Maxine Waters has to be one of the most unhinged politicians in Washington. She’s been one of the radicals leading the collusion charge and has basically said she thinks Trump should be impeached. For what? No one really knows. It’s hysterical. Recently, Maxine Waters went on television to float a theory about why Trump and California aren’t getting along. It was ridiculous. From Breitbart: During Saturday’s “AM Joy” on MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she thought President Donald Trump was being “vindictive” and “taking it out” on California with his policy because he did not win there. Host Joy...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 6, 2018 Attorney General Announces Zero-Tolerance Policy for Criminal Illegal Entry Attorney General Jeff Sessions today notified all U.S. Attorney’s Offices along the Southwest Border of a new “zero-tolerance policy” for offenses under 8 U.S.C. § 1325(a), which prohibits both attempted illegal entry and illegal entry into the United States by an alien. The implementation of the Attorney General’s zero-tolerance policy comes as the Department of Homeland Security reported a 203 percent increase in illegal border crossings from March 2017 to March 2018, and a 37 percent increase from February 2018 to March 2018—the largest month-to-month...

    Long ago, in a far away country (2017 in California) a dying city locked treasure in a forgotten vault, to be handed over to the new, larger regime. The treasure was inventoried then ignored for several months. During that time, from March 6, 2017, to August 31, 2017, the treasure, 23 Beretta .40 caliber handguns and 8 Glock .40 caliber handguns, disappeared.  No one admits knowing who purloined the treasure or where it has gone. At the end of March 2018, the city gave up on finding the treasure on its own, without controversy. They offered a reward close...

  • Over a dozen states join Trump’s lawsuit against “Sanctuary State” California

    Earlier this month, we noted that California faced a lawsuit from the Department of Justice over its new status as a “Sanctuary State“. Several red and purple states have now boarded this particular “Trump Train”. Texas and more than a dozen other states led by Republican governors got behind the Trump administration on Monday in its lawsuit over California’s so-called sanctuary laws that protect people in the U.S. illegally. California’s laws are designed to interfere with or block federal immigration enforcement but the state does not have that authority, the other states said in a court filing in the U.S....

    On March 14th and 15th,  2018, before the mass organized school “walkout” to push for more restrictions on gun ownership, a teacher led a discussion about political protests. Julian Benzel, a teacher at Rocklin High School in California opened a debate about how protests were political, and schools should be even-handed in their politics. The teacher reported the students understood the school should not pick losers and winners of controversial issues. From Benzel says she never discouraged her students from participating in the national school walk out, but she did question whether it’s appropriate for a school to...

Apparently they’ve got a giant squirrel problem in the public parks in San Diego. Now, I happen to like squirrels, but every time squirrels come up I have a bunch of people start shouting, “They’re nothing but tree rats. They’re nothing but rats with PR. They’re just rats. What do you mean, you like squirrels?” Well, it goes back to when I was a kid. My mom would actually open one of the windows...
