    Actress Goldie Hawn weighed in on the pervasiveness of crime in Los Angeles, revealing that her own home has been burglarized twice in four months. The 78-year-old made the comments during an appearance on the SiriusXM podcast “Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.” “What if we couldn’t live in L.A, where would we live? We both decided, I think it’s Palm Desert (California). … It’s so safe,” Hawn told Ripa of herself and Kurt Russell, her longtime boyfriend of four decades. “It’s just because L.A. is terrible. I mean, we were robbed once,” she added. Hawn went on to...

    "Despite the Democratic governor's enthusiasm in 2023, exactly zero states have agreed to his call for the constitutional convention necessary to amend the U.S. Constitution. Newsom claimed Sunday that this lack of progress was expected and the amendment could take decades to gain momentum."
  • California must pay feds $53M over 'improperly' claimed reimbursements for noncitizens

    California owes the federal government $52.7 million after it “improperly” requested reimbursements for services provided to noncitizens, according to a recent inspector general report. The Golden State claimed Medicaid reimbursements for services it provided to “noncitizens with unsatisfactory immigration status,” the report reads. The category does not include those seeking asylum or refugees. States are prohibited from claiming such federal reimbursements except in medical emergency situations, which did not apply here, according to the report. An audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services inspector general’s office found California had been using an outdated calculation method to determine...

    He’s not mincing words. Republican New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu dished Thursday on the current and former governors who “nobody liked” — claiming that Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo are despised by other state leaders. “I gotta be honest, no one cares for Gavin,” Sununu said of the California Democrat during an event at the Reagan Institute Summit on Education in Washington, DC. “Gavin is just a #$@_&. He just is,” he added. “It’s really disappointing.” Sununu, 49, indicated that he used to get along well with Newsom, but now, even Democratic governors can’t stand him.

    New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) minced no words in his evaluation of his counterpart in California on Thursday. At an event held by the Ronald Reagan Institute on Thursday, Sununu concluded that Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is “just a prick” and asserted that none of his peers can stand him. “And I think look almost all the governors get along. I mean, in my eight years, I can honestly tell you there’s really only been two — maybe a third — but two real governors that really nobody liked, nobody cared for at all,” continued Sununu before being asked...

    SACRAMENTO, CA - In a recent move to increase voter access, strengthen election integrity, and improve the voting process, California Governor Gavin Newsom has just signed a bill banning legal citizens from voting in local, state, and federal elections. Sources close to the Governor's Office say that the bill prohibits all legal citizens from casting a vote, including but not limited to "any person possessing a proper driver's license, passport, social security card, or other valid means of state or federal identification." "It is my sincere hope that this measure will help defend the electoral processes of the great state...

    On Wednesday, independent presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr. posted an homage to Harvey Milk, an infamous Democrat politician accused of grooming minors, on the day established in 2009 to celebrate his life. Kennedy posted on X, “I want to take a moment to celebrate Harvey Milk Day and honor a man whose bravery transformed our society. Harvey Milk was a trailblazer for LGBTQ+ rights and the first openly gay individual elected to public office in California." “Harvey died fighting for what he believed in and left behind a world in which people could live more freely and more authentically,"...

    ‘NO Climate Crisis’ Says Coalition of 1,600 Actual ScientistsThe United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is ‘one of the worst sources of dangerous misinformation’ “There is ‘NO Climate Crisis’ says a coalition of 1,600 actual scientists” in a recent letter to the California Air Resources Board. In fact, the scientists find that “California is in no danger of unusual drought: The annual precipitation in California has fluctuated greatly over the last 150 years, with only a slight decrease.” California also has record low levels of air pollution that are below the threshold of human health effects, James E.

    California Governor Gavin Newsom was called out by a reporter after he continued to dodge questions about blowing the state's $24 billion spending on the homeless. The Golden State's budget deficit is at least $45 billion, a shortfall so large it prompted Newsom to propose painful spending cuts impacting immigrants, kindergarteners and low-income parents seeking child care in a state often lauded for having the world's fifth-largest economy. California spent $24 billion tackling homelessness over five years but didn't track if the money was helping the state's growing number of unhoused people, a damning report says.
  • Middle-Class Californians Set To Pay Electricity Premium As State Makes Electric Car Push

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | May 10, 2024 | Susannah Luthi
    Millions of middle-class California households are poised to pay an extra $24 per month for electricity, regardless of how much electricity they use. Regulators are hoping this utility billing policy will rescue their agenda to move everyone to electric cars and appliances by redistributing the massive costs of the state’s electric grid so utilities can lower their usage rates. But critics say the income-based premium will likely further hike utility costs for millions of Californians—nearly one-fifth of whom are already behind in paying their bills after household electricity rates almost doubled in the last decade—and likely won’t do much to...

    Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is an “obstacle” in a two-state solution between Israel and Gaza and said he should resign. In an interview with RTÉ’s Six One News during a visit to Ireland, Pelosi spoke about the aftermath of Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack on Israel and Netanyahu’s deadly counteroffensive that has left more than 34,000 Palestinians dead, according to local health officials. “We recognize Israel’s right to protect itself. We reject the policy and the practice of Netanyahu,” she said. “Terrible. What could be worse than what he has done in response?” “He should...
  • Gavin Newsom Proposes “Emergency” Bill to Let Arizona Abortionists Kill Babies in California

    Apparently there is an emergency that not enough babies are being killed in California. Never mind that California allows abortions up to birth and funds abortions at taxpayer expense. Now, Governor Gavin Newsom is proposing “emergency” legislation to allow Arizona abortionists to come to California to kill more babies in abortions. The move comes after the Arizona Supreme Court upheld an abortion ban that protects babies from abortions but allows an abortion if needed to save a woman’s life in an emergency. Hence, there is no emergency – because all emergency care is allowed in Arizona for pregnant women, including...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) administration lost track of the $24 billion in taxpayer funds it spent over the past five years in an attempt to curb the state’s homelessness crisis, an audit has found. The California State Auditor’s report, released on April 9, detailed multiple “gaps” in accountability in regards to how the money was allocated during the 2018-2023 fiscal years. Lead auditor Grant Parks said the state “has not collected sufficient data” to prove that the billions of dollars improved the situation.

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing backlash after a restaurant he partially owns posted a job listing for $16 an hour when a new state law is forcing fast food eateries to pay their employees $20 an hour. PlumpJack Cafe in Olympic Valley – which is among a group of eateries owned by a company Newsom founded in 1992 – is hiring a part-time busser who “will aim to assist the food server … to ensure guest satisfaction during all aspects of the dining experience,” according to a ZipRecruiter posting. The job listing states the salary for the busser is...

    A restaurant partially owned by California Governor Gavin Newsom is recruiting for a $16-per-hour role, despite a new state law guaranteeing a minimum wage of $20 per hour for fast-food workers. The restaurant appears not to meet the threshold for the new minimum wage, a law that Newsom himself signed to much fanfare in September. On April 1, the new law guaranteeing a minimum wage of $20 per hour for fast-food workers employed in large chains took effect across California, up from the previous minimum of $16. The law was passed by Democrats in the state legislature last year but...
  • Gavin Newsom caught with hand in cookie jar again, exempts more 'friends' from $20/hour fast-food wage law

    Not too long ago, Gavin Newsom got caught with his hand in the cookie jar of political cronyism. In response to a draconian law passed raising fast-food worker wages to $20 an hour, known as A.B. 1228, Newsom carved out a little exemption for his friends at Panera Bread on the laughable grounds that these establishments bake bread on the premises. In reality, the owner of several Panera establishments was a high school buddy who was a really good donor to his campaigns. Once caught, Newsom backed off, but right when he thought no one was looking, he went right...
