  • FEMA is refusing to pay California more than $300 million to repair the nation’s tallest earthen dam

    In 2011, Jerry Brown was told that the Orville Dam had problems. In 2014, he got a major water bond passed, which included money to fix the dam. He refused to fix the dam. Then we had major rains, the dam broke and he wanted Federal funds. President Trump cut out over $300 million—because the damage was due to unrepaired portions of the dam, known since the official report in 2011. Jerry Brown was trying to steal money from the Federal taxpayers, to finance his fraud in passing a bond and not spending the money as advertised. “The Trump administration...

    California Governor Gavin Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, will be addressed as “First Partner” rather than “First Lady” in order to advance ‘gender equality,’ according to The Gateway Pundit. Jennifer Newsom even altered her Twitter bio to reflect the recent change: First Partner of California. Filmmaker and Founder of @therepproject. Married to Mr. @GavinNewsom and proud mom of four little ones. CA’s former leader, Jerry Brown, stepped down from his post on Monday letting far-left Gavin Newsom take over as the 40th governor of California.

    California's largest public utility provider could face murder or manslaughter charges if it were found responsible for causing the state's recent deadly wildfires, according to court documents filed by the state attorney general. Pacific Gas & Electric Co., or PG&E, could potentially face a range of criminal offenses if any of the wildfires broke out as a result of the utility failing to properly operate and maintain power lines, per an amicus brief filed in US District Court Friday by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. PG&E, which provides electricity to about 16 million Californians, has been under scrutiny for how...

    FULL TITLE: Senator who authored California’s ‘sanctuary state’ bill sends condolences to family of slain officer As Twitchy reported earlier, Cameron Gray posted a must-read thread about the number of House members from California who took to social media to demand answers about the deaths of two children in Border Patrol custody but never thought to tweet about Cpl. Ronil Singh, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant. Well, there was one tweet and another retweet at least. President pro tempore of the California State Senate Kevin de León, probably better known to out-of-staters as the Democrat who...

    Breitbart ^ | 12/28/18
    When asked about his thoughts on the 2020 field, outgoing California Governor Jerry Brown (D) recently told the Associated Press that white men will “probably be running things for quite a bit of time” and wondered, “What’s wrong with white men?” The Associated Press asked Brown, who recently told NPR that national Democrats are becoming too radical for voters, for a piece over the weekend if having three white men—Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Vice President Joe Biden, and Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke—as his party’s early 2020 frontrunners hurts Democrats, especially after the 2018 midterm elections in which Democrats...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown's Christmas granted 143 pardons and 131 commutations for Christmas, including a handful of refugees and immigrants that he hopes to spare from deportation by scrubbing their criminal histories. Brown also responded to the clemency request of Kevin Cooper -- a death-row inmate convicted of killing four members of a Chino Hills, Calif., family at their home with a hatchet, knife and ice pick in 1983 after escaping from a nearby prison -- by ordering new DNA tests on four pieces of evidence including the hatchet handle and sheath. Brown stressed in the order that he takes...

    A 96-year-old water main burst in a South Los Angeles neighborhood Friday, sending water bubbling up above the pavement, flooding streets and creating a void that submerged cars. It took the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power more than four hours to fully shut off the 24-inch cast iron main as water inundated the neighborhood at 55th Street and Towne Avenue. About 30 adults and 20 children were displaced from their homes; the Fred Roberts Recreation Center was set up as a temporary shelter. LADWP is covering the cost of hotel stays for some affected residents while crews do...

    Outgoing California Gov. Jerry Brown recently said, "The weakness of the Republican Party has let the Democratic Party, I think, go get further out than I think the majority of people want." When a tax-spend-and-regulate Democrat who signed legislation making California the first "sanctuary state" says the Democrats have gotten too "further out" for the majority, that party would be wise to take notice. In the November elections, California Democrats won veto-proof supermajorities in both chambers of state government. No Republican currently holds an elected state-wide office. Brown seems to recognize that there are only so many "rich" people and...

    Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown helped make his party even more powerful in California during the last eight years and now, less than a month before leaving office, he predicts that dominance will make it difficult for his successor to control Democrats’ hunger for spending and regulations. The leader of the most populous state has kept Democratic lawmakers in check by limiting spending on social programs in favor of saving it to protect against a future economic downtown. He sometimes butted heads with legislative leaders, warning spending too much now could hurt taxpayers or require budget cuts later. Democrats hold all...

    (CBSLA/AP) — Thousands of teachers who may go on strike against the nation’s second-largest school district next month marched and rallied in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday. United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) union estimates 50,000 were there. The crowd had relief from overcrowding at the top of their wish list. **SNIP** UTLA teachers and supporters wore red for unity. They are seeing red over LAUSD’s reluctance to part with more green. “I want to see investment in the schools and in the kids,” said LAUSD parent Carmen Montecito. UTLA says if LAUSD would just tap in to its almost $2...

    In a rare step, the California Supreme Court has blocked Gov. Jerry Brown’s attempt to issue a pardon to a 37-year-old Cambodian refugee who killed a woman when he was 14 years old. The court gave no reason for the rejection, but earlier noted it only had the authority to do so in the case of an “abuse of power.”Brown’s pardon would have effectively stopped Borey Ai’s deportation to Cambodia, a nation where his mother was born but he has never seen. The governor in the last 10 months has pardoned seven ex-convicts who otherwise faced the threat of deportation...

    California Democrats will be taking another stab at requiring all public colleges and universities to stock the abortion pill, anticipating a different outcome with a new governor taking over the helm in January. Democratic state Sen. Connie Leyva on Monday introduced the latest version of the bill, the College Student Right to Access Act, during the first day of the Senate's session. The legislation would make abortion pills available to students at schools associated with the University of California and California State University. A similar bill was vetoed in October by outgoing Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who said there was...

    Very few people took notice when far left Governor Jerry Brown signed the changes in AB1921 into law two years ago. As a result, California lost 7 of its 14 Republican House seats this election cycle. Ballot harvesting is illegal in most states. In Texas, New York and Pennsylvania they arrest people for ballot harvesting. Orange County, traditionally a conservative enclave in Southern California turned all blue after Democrats found hundreds of thousands of votes post election day. Republicans such as Mimi Walters, Dana Rohrabacher and Young Kim were all ahead election night only to lose their races after late...

    The rise of Rahim Hassanally, a prominent young dealer in California, may be coming to a bitter end, after seven of his dealerships abruptly shuttered following months of financial woes. The single store of Momentum Auto Group that remains open after the November closures, sources say, is Momentum Chevrolet, which is majority-owned by General Motors. The dealership group, with stores in Fairfield, San Jose and Vallejo in the San Francisco Bay area, ranked 124th on Automotive News' list of the Top 150 Dealership Groups in the U.S. last year, with 7,753 new-vehicle and 4,749 used-vehicle retail sales in 2017.

    Reason Foundation ^ | November 16, 2018 | Steven Greenhut
    In California, new lawsuits aim to make unions respect the Supreme Court's authority. The U.S. Supreme Court's decision from June in Janus v. the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees was clear: Public employees no longer are required to pay union dues, even for collective-bargaining purposes. This was no technical or ambiguous point. The court declared it an infringement of the First Amendment when the government forces workers to financially support organizations that they don't want to support. Case settled, right? Not entirely. Public-sector unions, especially in California, aren't used to finding themselves on the losing end of...

    In recent days, POTUS Donald Trump was criticized by firefighters, Left-wing Democrats, environmental groups, and #NeverTrump Republicans for daring to state that the wildfires currently burning up California were largely the fault of poor forest management by the state. Early on, the president tweeted there was “no reason for these massive deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!” ... California Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, after denouncing...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A former state senator convicted of lying about his residence and three refugees from Vietnam who could face deportation are among 38 people pardoned Wednesday by Gov. Jerry Brown ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Brown’s pardons also include a man who just lost his Paradise home in a wildfire. The Democratic governor also commuted the sentences of 70 people still serving time, including Walter “Earlonne” Woods, who co-hosts a podcast called “Ear Hustle” from inside San Quinton state prison. Former Sen. Roderick Wright was convicted of felony charges of voter fraud and perjury in 2014 when a...

    Has anyone noticed the deference paid Governor Elect Gavin Newsome? He is at every public event. As acting governor," he declared a state of emergency for the fire damaged area. Why would he have to act on this. Brown is still governor. He joined Brown and Trump touring fire damage. There is not a public event that he is not at. I have never seen anything like this. Trump, as President Elect, did not join in on conferences or the greetings of heads of state with Obama nor Obama with Bush. In fact, I have never seen an elected official,...
