    A new report shows that the homeless population in Sacramento, California is growing, with more people than ever living without shelter. California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, who once referred to himself as the "homeless czar," recently introduced a plan to house people across the state, but it only covers a fraction of what's needed.

    *** Two Bay Area cities ranked poorly in a recent study by WalletHub that examined the operating efficiency of 150 U.S. cities and identified which are run well and which are not. The personal finance website looked at metrics related to a city's operating budget and the quality of the services it provides — everything from public school to transit — to quantify who's at the top of the list and who's at the bottom. San Francisco came in at No. 149, making it the second-worst-run city in the country, according to WalletHub's metrics. Only our nation's capital, Washington, D.C.,...

    A woke California school board member is calling for people to boycott the Fourth of July, claiming 'there is no reason to celebrate' America's Independence Day. AnaMarie Avila Farias, a third-generation Contra Costa County resident and member of the county's board of education, shared a fading blue and white image of the United States flag on June 28, along with the words 'BOYCOTT 4TH OF JULY,' on Facebook. 'I haven't celebrated 4th of July since 2016 and I don't think it's a holiday to celebrate' Farias wrote in a Facebook post. 'What do you think?' The elected official's stance on...
  • Woke West Hollywood leader who is behind defunding of cops because she wanted 'more bang for our buck' blew $85,000 of taxpayer's money updating LGBT crosswalk to make it more trans and BIPOC friendly

    The woke West Hollywood officials who proposed the city defund their sheriff's department to save money had agreed to spend $85,000 to updating the city's LGBT crosswalk to make it more inclusive. Sepi Shyne, the city's first LGBTQ councilmember, led a 3-2 vote to cut the current force of around 60 sheriff's deputies by four, while also hiring 30 unarmed 'security ambassadors' under a scheme called Block By Block. The woke councilmember said the officers cost too much - and the Block by Block program represented more 'bang for the buck.'
  • California moves to limit where firearms may be carried and who can have them

    California lawmakers on Tuesday moved to limit where firearms may be carried and who can have them, while struggling to stay within the high court’s ruling. They aim to restrict concealed carry to those 21 and older; require applicants to disclose all prior arrests, criminal convictions and restraining or protective orders; require in-person interviews with the applicant and at least three character references; and allow sheriffs and police chiefs to consider applicants’ public statements as they weigh if the individual is dangerous.
  • Do mask mandates work? Bay Area COVID data from June says no.

    In early June, during an uptick in COVID-19 cases, Alameda County was the only Bay Area county to bring back an indoor mask mandate. At the time, county Health Officer Dr. Nicholas Moss said, “Putting our masks back on gives us the best opportunity to limit the impact of a prolonged wave on our communities.” But regional case data provides no discernible evidence that the rule, which was lifted June 25, succeeded at that goal.

    While Gov. Gavin Newsom has pledged to make California a sanctuary for women seeking abortions, his administration won't spend public money to help people from other states travel to California for the procedure. Newsom's decision, included in a budget agreement reached over the weekend, surprised abortion advocates who have been working with the governor for nearly a year to prepare for a potential surge of patients from other states coming to California for abortions now that the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade. California's operating budget, which is scheduled for a vote in the state Legislature on Wednesday,...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Department of Justice on Wednesday acknowledged the agency wrongly made public the personal information of perhaps hundreds of thousands of gun owners in up to six state-operated databases, a broader exposure than the agency initially disclosed a day earlier. Rob Bonta, the Democrat who heads the agency and is running for reelection in November, said he was “deeply disturbed and angered” by the failure to protect the information his department is entrusted to keep. He ordered an investigation and promised to fix any problems. “This unauthorized release of personal information is unacceptable and falls...

    A trendy Los Angeles County community has voted to reduce law enforcement funding despite escalating crime that was up 137% earlier in the year and public backlash. The budget for the next two fiscal years will leave West Hollywood with up to five fewer Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies on patrol. At the same time the council approved increasing funding for a cultural arts festival. The budget was approved by a narrow 3-2 vote with Mayor Lauren Meister dissenting as well as Councilman John Erickson. "Most of the residents and businesses I have heard from are opposed to cutting the...
  • America is depleting its strategic petroleum reserve faster than it looks

    The U.S. has become the world’s oil barrel of last resort, singlehandedly keeping prices in the energy market from exploding even higher by selling a large chunk of its Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Washington can’t use the reserve forever: It’s a finite stockpile fighting a potentially unlimited flow shortage. More worryingly, the U.S. is depleting its cache a lot faster than it looks. And that matters. The International Energy Agency earlier this week warned that “global oil supply may struggle to keep pace with demand next year.” The SPR may be the final cushion late this year and in 2023 to...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Hate crimes driven by homophobia and racism resulted in a 33% surge in reported incidents in California last year, following a similar spike in hate-driven attacks the year prior and confirming what officials have been hearing anecdotally since the pandemic began, the state’s attorney general said Tuesday. Attorney General Rob Bonta said that crimes against Black people were again the most prevalent in 2021, climbing 13% from 2020 to 513 reported incidents. Hate crimes motivated by sexual orientation bias increased nearly 50% to 303 incidents while crimes against Asian Americans were up 178% to 247 incidents....

    California gun owners have been put at risk by the Attorney General’s office after a new dashboard leaked their personal information.

    A portion of California's budget will go toward funding a health insurance expansion for hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants in the state. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a budget deal Sunday that includes funding to expand Medi-Cal – California’s state-subsidized health insurance – for low-income, undocumented residents ages 26 to 49. It is expected to impact roughly 700,000 people across the state. The program is expected to start by Jan. 1, 2024.

    Last week, the Supreme Court eviscerated a woman’s right to abortion, undermined Miranda rights, expanded gun rights and allowed border patrol agents to operate with even further impunity. Today, it ruled that a former Washington state high school football coach can pray on the field immediately after games—regardless of the religious backgrounds of the students.

    Vice President Kamala Harris is facing backlash from liberals after posting a “tone deaf” photo of her vowing to fight for abortion rights — as she watched coverage of the nationwide Roe v.

Harris posted the photo on her official Twitter page Friday night as activists took to the streets after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark abortion ruling. “I know there are women out there who are afraid. To those of you who feel alone and scared: I want you to know the President and I are fighting for you and your...
