    The California State Auditor issued a scathing report last week alleging that University of California President and former Obama Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano raised tuitions while her office hid $175 million. The cover page for State Auditor Elaine Howle’s 167-page audit report states bluntly that the UC president’s office “Failed to Disclose Tens of Millions in Surplus Funds, and Its Budget Practices Are Misleading.” The audit found that the UC spent $32.5 billion on expenses during the 2015-16 school year to fund 10 campuses, five medical centers, and its Office of the President headquarters. Although the UC states...
  • In California you may soon be able to pick from three genders on official documents

    The title of this article is a bit on the misleading side, for which I apologize in advance. We’ve covered all manner of stories about the transgender debates sweeping the nation and at first glance that’s what this one looked like. There’s a bill under consideration in California which will allow official documents such as drivers licenses to offer three choices in the gender column. But this one has nothing to do with “choice” or political movements. It deals with a very real condition affecting a significant number of people and should be encouraged.

    FULL TITLE: California camping trip turns to horror when a group of men threaten to rape woman if she is still in her tent by daybreak A local couple say their camping trip turned to horror after a gang of men threatened to rape a woman for staying on their 'territory'. The man and woman, who do not want to be named for fear of a reprisal attack, were staying at the Bear River Campground in Colfax, California, over Easter Weekend when they say they were approached by a group of campers. The men arrived in a rusted pickup truck,...
  • 13-Pound Newborn ‘Valentino’ One Of Biggest Born In Northern California

    04/30/2017 1:14:38 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 15 replies
    A newborn baby in Sacramento made an impressive debut, weighing in at more than 13 pounds. Baby Valentino is one of the largest babies ever born in Northern California. He was delivered at Sutter Davis Hospital on Friday. Despite his big size, his mom says her labor was pretty quick, lasting a little more than 2 hours. “When we put him on the scale and I saw the look on my sister-in-law’s face and she said 13 pounds, 11 ounces, I was pretty shocked,” said mom Kelly Corsetti. Valentino will join his 17-month-old brother and 2-and-a-half-year-old sister. Doctors say he...

    CBS San Francisco ^ | April 27, 2017
    A substantial police presence both on the Berkeley campus and at a gathering in a downtown park kept hundreds of activists on both sides of the free-speech debate in line during protests Thursday. Hundreds of far-right protesters, some dressed in goggles, gas masks and knee pads, rallied in support of conservative speaker Ann Coulter in Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park . Some at the rally were wearing combat gear, including military grade ballistic helmets and body armor. Dozens of police in riot gear stood by ready to crack down on violence as had been anticipated between provocateurs of...

    WESTLAKE VILLAGE Grief fuels father’s battle against illegal immigration By Brenda Gazzar @bgazzar on Twitter WESTLAKE VILLAGE » Don Rosenberg is a lifelong liberal who may have only one thing in common politically with President Donald Trump: his battle against illegal immigration. Rosenberg became an activist on the issue after his 25-year-old son, Drew, was killed in a 2010 collision in San Francisco with a Honduran immigrant who had entered the country illegally, but been granted temporary immigration status. The Westlake Village resident now spends much of his spare time firing off letters to journalists, sounding off on TV...

    Source: Much attention has been given to the antics of crazy California politicians like Kamala Harris, Kevin de Leon, and Nancy Pelosi, who all advocate for sanctuary city/state policies and call anyone opposed to their view racist or " white supremacist " - and can somehow say with a straight face that this policy doesn't put Americans at risk. But, there are elected officials and law enforcement officers in the state who strongly oppose these policies and, in particular, Senate Bill 54 , which would prohibit law enforcement agencies in the state from using "agency or department moneys,...

    The Syracuse Post-Standard ^ | April 26, 2017 | Charley Hannagan
    Syracuse, N.Y. --There's not a lot tunnel building going on in the United States. Four highway tunnels have been completed over the last 10 years in the U.S. Four more tunnel projects are under construction or in design. And one long discussed project that would have tunneled underneath a national forest in California was dropped. Could be a tunnel in Syracuse's future for Interstate 81? After a tunnel was initially rejected, a tunnel or depressed highway is back on the table as an option to replace Interstate 81's 1.4 mile section of raised highway in Syracuse. The DOT at first...

    SAN FRANCISCO — California prison officials must provide for free undergarments that flatten the chest of transgender inmates at women's prisons and give transgender inmates at men's prisons access to bracelets, earrings, hair brushes and hair clips, a federal judge said Friday. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar issued the order in a federal lawsuit that earlier led California to become the first state to provide taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery to an inmate. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation also agreed as part of the suit by Shiloh Quine to give transgender inmates access to certain products. Quine, 57, had...

    The left-wing activists behind the anti-conservative riots at Berkeley have ties to one of the nation’s most prominent pro-pedophilia organizations. The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary — more commonly referred to as By Any Means Necessary or BAMN — is one of the militant leftist groups waging a campaign against conservatives and Trump supporters in Berkeley. The group’s planned aggressive demonstrations against conservative commentator Ann Coulter and the students coming to hear her talk led to the cancellation of Coulter’s speech this week due to safety concerns

After 27-year-old Darren King was arrested in the Simi Valley burglaries, he posted bail of $50,000 last August but failed to appear in court later that month, according to police. A warrant in the amount of $1 million was issued for his arrest....

    The article is what it is. She does not appear to be over the top. But if this is part of your action plans "The water action plan, Marcus said, aims to curb “truly wasteful practices” such as watering lawns to the extent that the water runs down the street. In addition, restaurant servers are prohibited from serving water to patrons without asking." then why AFTER SPENDING BILLIONS in the last few decades do you not have a plan for catching runoff. Why have you not created more reservoirs. why has there been no preemptive action taken.

    A new sex-education curriculum has provoked opposition in three California school districts this year, and parent-led protests have already forced one local school board to delay its implementation. “The new curriculum on ‘Human Growth and Development’ needs to be suspended for a major revision to reflect true human development and growth,” read a petition posted on and signed by thousands of parents in Cupertino Union School District who oppose “Teen Talk Middle School,” a curriculum published by Health Connected. “The chosen textbook is age inappropriate and has detailed, graphic descriptions of oral, anal and vaginal sex.” The California Healthy...

    Socialized Health Care: Never let it be said that California doesn't march to the beat of a different drummer. While the rest of the country has had second, third and even fourth thoughts about having a single-payer health care system, the Golden State boldly marches forward into fiscal oblivion. As the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday, "A sweeping measure that would establish government-run universal health care in California cleared its first legislative hurdle Wednesday as scores of supporters crammed into the Capitol to advocate for a single-payer system." Let's unpack that sentence a bit. It's true that so-called State Bill...

Historically Berkeley is known as the home of the American free speech movement, but after Ann Coulter’s speech was canceled by the University free speech advocates organized online and took to the campus to protest the censorship. Everyone at Berkeley is a hippie, wanna-be hippie, or cross dresser so when a bunch of young pro-America patriots show up dressed in American flags and green frogs, you know the real counter culture revolution going on is being pro-American.

    President Trump on Friday is expected to sign an executive order that could open large parts of the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic oceans to new oil and gas drilling, a prospect that elicited a fierce backlash in California and elsewhere even before details of the order were clear. The move, which is certain to face legal and political challenges, could undo a plan finalized late in President Obama’s second term that sought to limit fossil fuel development and fight climate change by not including new drilling leases off the coast of California or Alaska during the current five-year federal offshore...
