    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.

    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...

    A Southwest Airlines gate agent at John Wayne Airport is accused of being awful in front of a five-year old girl - and on social media - because of her unique name. The girl's mother says the agent made fun of the name and even posted a photo of her boarding pass on social media for others to chime in. Five-year-old Abcde Redford pronounces her name "ab-city."

    The narratives of the midterm elections were set when suburban voters turned against President Trump, women racked up record numbers of electoral wins and Republicans dominated rural states and counties. But dive deeper into the results and some more surprising storylines emerge, from familial ties to long shot candidates, expanding suburbs and new battlegrounds. Here are the overlooked stories that didn’t get enough coverage after the polls closed. Did Puerto Ricans elect Rick Scott? When Hurricane Maria left Puerto Rico devastated in 2017, almost 400,000 of the island’s residents moved to the mainland. Many of them landed in Florida, where...
  • Carl’s Jr. parent to close Anaheim office, ending a California legacy

    The parent company of Carl’s Jr. says it will be closing its Anaheim office and moving those operations to Franklin, Tenn., where the company is now based, effectively ending a California legacy that started when the chain was founded in 1941 in Los Angeles. CKE, which also owns the Hardee’s, Green Burrito and Red Burrito restaurant brands, moved its Carpenteria headquarters to Franklin last year, blaming high taxes and a stringent business climate, factors that have driven other companies out of the Golden State.

    While you were watching the Red Card in Florida, guess what they pulled in California? A nation riveted. Did Florida elect DeSantis their new Governor, or the anti-Semitic crook with the Hamilton tickets and the Tallahassee corruption scandal? Did Florida elect one of its finest-ever Governors, now term-limited, to the United States Senate, or did they go again for the mummy? And for those with Georgia on their minds, did Stacey Abrams finally figure out that 49 percent is less than 50 percent, or is she still working on the new math? Well, it seems for Republicans focused on those...

    RUSH: Speaking of the election, I want to get into this a little bit more detail, but I noted yesterday that in Orange County every Republican congressman lost. Orange County is one of the last counties in California where Republicans have a chance, and they lost every congressional seat. But I only told you half the story. Over half of those Republicans won on election night. Some of those Republicans won by eight points — and then counting the undervotes and counting the overvotes and counting the late votes. I mean, we didn’t see what was going on out there...

    FULL TITLE: ‘ROBBED.’ Dem Gil Cisneros defeats Repub Young Kim proving Orange Cty. CA is sexist AND racist (that’s how this works, right?) Republican Young Kim who originally held the lead on Election Day has magically lost her race to Democrat Gil Cisneros. Gosh, is it our imagination or does there seem to be a lot of this going on? *adjusts tinfoil hat*

    A bomb squad responded to the 12700 block of Newport Avenue in an unincorporated county area near Tustin about 9 a.m. Wednesday after neighbors reported hearing an explosion, officials said. Two other mysterious explosions had been reported in the same area in recent weeks. Deputies soon found pieces of a shattered terra cotta chiminea in Welch's backyard, according to the statement. Welch told investigators he accidentally caused the explosion by placing an aerosol can in the burning chiminea. No injuries were reported. Deputies noticed items in plain sight at Welch's home that appeared to be explosives and fireworks. An OCSD...

    Democrat Katie Porter unseated incumbent Rep. Mimi Walters (R-Calif.), marking the first time Democrats have won the inland Orange County district since its creation in 1983. The Associated Press called the race on Thursday, nine days after Election Day. Walters, a former Laguna Niguel mayor and state lawmaker, had aligned herself with the unpopular President Trump this past election cycle. She was one of a handful of vulnerable Republicans who voted for and defended both Trump’s Obamacare repeal bill and his tax cuts law.

    When I was a freshman at the University of California, Riverside, in 1988, I drove a carload of excited fellow Vietnamese students to nearby Orange County. It was only 13 years after the end of the Vietnam War, but already there was a Vietnamese American Dream, symbolized by our destination, the Asian Garden Mall in Westminster. To the strains of Vietnamese pop music, we ate Vietnamese food, browsed Vietnamese goods, and sat in the balcony of the American-style mall, sipping Vietnamese iced coffee while we watched Vietnamese people. The mall was the heart of the Little Saigon in Orange County....

    Warns of 'catastrophic' campaign cutbacks despite loaning his campaign $8.8 million Gil Cisneros, a Democratic candidate running in Orange County who won $266 million from the lottery in 2010, was issuing urgent pleas for donations from supporters late last week before cutting himself a check for $200,000. Cisneros, a former Navy veteran and Frito-Lay manager, is running against GOP small business owner Young Kim in an extremely tight race to replace Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.). Before last week, he had loaned his campaign $8.8 million and collected $1.9 million in contributions. On Wednesday the Cisneros campaign asked supporters for...

    There are a lot of reasons I’m not a Democrat. For example, I believe that… 1. Jesus, America, and capitalism have been the three greatest forces of good in world history. 2. An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10. 3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence. 4. It’s wrong and disgusting to harass people in restaurants and at their home just because you disagree with them politically. Also if you block traffic to get attention for your cause, whatever it may be, I am...

    The second episode of CBS’s rebooted version of the political comedy Murphy Brown aired October 4 and the chosen hot-button issues to punch were: bashing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ honesty and the introduction of a DACA student. If it were not for lame liberal talking points, this show would have no dialogue.

    When police found Carlos Cruz-Echevarria dead near his home last Veterans Day, he was lying face down in a ditch, shot multiple times in the head. Beside him was a truck stuck in the mud. Later, the 60-year-old army veteran’s car was found several miles away, torched. It seemed like a random, senseless killing: authorities thought Cruz-Echevarria had been robbed and left for dead after stopping to help a stranger on a Daytona Beach roadside. But a year-long investigation has revealed that it was anything but random.
