    Randy Quaid is crazy. Some say he’s crazy like a fox. Others say he’s just plain nuts. But however you feel about the actor is irrelevant to him. He does what he wants and has the videos to prove it. And as of today, he wants to remove Representative Adam Schiff from office. To do so, he’s taking the bull by the horns and intends to run against him in California’s 28th District. This isn’t the first time Quaid has discussed a run against the impeachment-obsessed Congressman. Four days ago, he announced that he’s considering the run and was met...

    Darrell Issa, a nine-term congressman who retired last year, will run against fellow Republican Duncan Hunter in California’s 50th district. Republicans Carl DeMaio, a former city councilman in San Diego, and state senator Brian Jones are also challenging Hunter, who is not giving up his bid despite a looming trial on corruption charges. The “GOP Brawl,” as Politico put it, enhances the prospects of Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar, who lost to Hunter by 3.4 percentage points last November. As Robin Abcarian of the Los Angeles Times explains, Campa-Najjar has been telling voters “Whether in two years, four years, or 10 years....
  • Pelosi’s Circular Firing Squad: Impeachment will cost some Democratic seats.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 25, 2019 | Karl Rove
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that the House will formally consider President Trump’s impeachment has plunged America into a constitutional crisis. Mr. Trump smartly released the rough transcript of his July 25 conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It undermines Mrs. Pelosi’s claim (made after the transcript’s release but before she had read it) that Mr. Trump “asked a foreign government to help him in his political campaign at the expense of our national security.” Yet don’t expect the president’s act of transparency to deter Democrats who want him removed from office. ... Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Adam Schiff could...

    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.

    President Donald Trump remains on a war footing. With California. Trump's primary mission during his two-day visit to the state was to raise millions from wealthy Republicans. But he also made a point of deriding the state's handling of its homeless crisis, and on Wednesday, he issued a long-expected challenge to California's authority to reduce car emissions.
  • Implosion: Kamala Harris now polling below Andrew Yang in her home state of California!

    American Thinker ^ | 09/18/2019
    Apparently, even leftists know a phony when they see one. What else can be concluded from a new Emerson poll which reports that Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris's support has cratered in her home state of California, falling behind that of even eccentric businessman Andrew Yang. It's not good news for the Democrat popularly known on Twitter as 'horizontal Harris': Why is that so bad? Because, well, for starters, it's so low. Harris is trailing badly against rivals Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders for one. She's also pretty humiliatingly edged out now by Andrew Yang, a marginal candidate...

    Republican Rep. Paul Cook (Calif.) will retire from Congress at the end of this term and run for a seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday. He is the 17th House Republican lawmaker to announce they will not seek reelection in 2020. Cook was first elected to his House seat in California's 8th Congressional District in 2012, and sits on both the House Armed Services Committee and Natural Resources Committee. SNIP

    The television images of homeless adults, tent cities, discarded drug paraphernalia, and filthy conditions in America’s urban landscapes are shocking. The homeless people in these scenes didn’t grow up saying, “I can’t wait to become an addict and live on the street.” Clearly, several things went wrong over the course of their lives. For many living on the streets, the path to homelessness started early, with childhood trauma and adverse experiences. For example, in Santa Clara County, just south of San Francisco, 78 percent of homeless adults grew up in a household with a person with drug or alcohol dependence;...

    KISS's September 20 concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles has been postponed until March 4, 2020, due to what the band called "unforeseen scheduling issues," in a statement. Tickets bought for the September 20 date will be valid for the rescheduled date. Kiss is currently on its 'End of the Road' farewell world tour. The Staples Center concert was supposed to serve as the band's North American finale. One wouldn't expect "scheduling" of all things to cause a postponement on an iconic artist's farewell tour, but as long as everyone's healthy, no one should be complaining. Kiss will...

    SAN FRANCISCO — President Donald Trump will hit one of his favorite political targets — California — with a mid-September fundraising visit to the liberal bastion of the San Francisco Bay area, in addition to Beverly Hills and San Diego. A “save the date” invite shows that the president will visit the Bay Area region on Sept. 17 for an event at an undisclosed location hosted by RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, co-chair Tommy Hicks Jr., RNC Finance Chairman Todd Ricketts and Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. Trump will also head to Southern California in his fourth trip as president to...

Kamala Harris (D-CA) and former Vice President Joe Biden in the Golden State ahead of the second debates upcoming at the end of July.

    Former vice president Joe Biden is proposing to restore California’s now-defunct high-speed rail project — just months after Gov. Gavin Newsom pulled the plug, and President Donald Trump pulled the funding. Biden formerly championed high-speed rail with President Barack Obama as part of the 2009 “stimulus” package. Joel Fox, commenting on California’s widely-read Fox & Hounds blog, noted the provision in Biden’s new plan to tackle climate change

    Did a search and noting popped up so... The California Senate moved forward Thursday in its effort to keep President Trump off the primary ballot in 2020 unless he releases his tax returns. The state Senate approved a bill, 27-10, requiring candidates that on the presidential primary ballot to release at least five years’ worth of tax returns. This would include President Trump, who has refused to release his returns, citing that he is under audit. "We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said Democratic state...

    A Democratic presidential primary field that already embraces the Green New Deal and has floated ideas like reparations and guaranteed jobs could drift even further left thanks to a quirk in this year’s primary calendar. Unlike past elections, California will hold its primary early in the season – on March 3, 2020. That means the West Coast state, and its famously liberal voters, will hold extra influence this cycle. And while the 2020 candidates still have to connect with supporters in earliest-voting Iowa and New Hampshire – with their more moderate-leaning electorates – California’s combination of an early primary and...
