    The ruling is “a massive victory for California’s truck drivers, who for far too long have faced exploitation and misclassification at the hands of trucking companies that place corporate profit ahead of drivers’ safety and well-being,” the International Brotherhood of Teamsters said in a statement.

    The 2020 Census results are a complete embarrassment to California's ruling Democrats.Despite opening the floodgates to millions of illegal aliens, making the state the home to one out of four foreigners who break into the country without authorization, the state has made substandard gains in population over the last decade. The population that the state did gain over the last decade was well below the 7.4% national average, according to the New York Times, and really bad compared to places like number-one Texas. As a result, the state is losing a congressional seat, for the first time in its 170-year...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s population fell by more than 182,000 last year, the first yearly loss ever recorded for the nation’s most populous state that halted a growth streak dating to its founding in 1850 on the heels of a gold rush that prompted a flood of people to seek their fortune in the West. The figures released Friday followed last week’s announcement from the U.S. Census Bureau that California would lose a congressional seat for the first time because it grew more slowly than other states over the past decade. Still, California’s population of just under 39.5 million...

    ABC’s late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has called Caitlyn Jenner an “ignorant a-hole” in response to the California gubernatorial candidate’s recent interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity during which Jenner addressed California’s population exodus and homelessness crisis. On Thursday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, host Jimmy Kimmel attempted to portray Caitlyn Jenner as out-of-touch because she conducted the Hannity interview from a private airplane hangar. Kimmel also mocked Jenner’s comment about a pilot friend who Jenner said is moving to Arizona due to California’s exploding homeless population.

    The California Department of Finance released estimates Friday reporting that the Golden State lost 0.46 percent of its population in 2020. The population loss is the first the state has measured as an annual decline in the decades it has been tracking annual population data. In 2019, state demographers had estimated a population increase of 0.2 percent, or 87,494 people. But in 2020, California saw a net loss of 182,083 people and a net exodus of 310,918 people.

"I want to thank our friend and governor, Gavin Newsom, for his leadership," Harris said at the beginning of her video message, adding, "I support him 100 percent." "With the leadership of Gov. Gavin Newsom and [California...

    SACRAMENTO — Propelled by growing voter frustration over California’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a Republican-led drive to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom from office collected enough voter signatures to qualify for the ballot, state officials reported Monday, triggering for only the second time in the state’s history a rapid-fire campaign to decide whether to oust a sitting governor. Recall backers submitted more than 1,495,709 verified voter signatures — equal to 12% of all ballots cast in the last gubernatorial election — meeting the minimum threshold to force a special recall election, according to a tally released by Secretary of State...

    In response to Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner announcing his bid to oust California’s governor Gavin Newsom, Joy Behar said on The View, “He’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign.” Later, Behar added, “I think that he should — she, rather, should take a seat and let somebody with the credentials take over a major state like California.”Behar subsequently apologized for the “pronoun mix-up,” explaining, “but, whatever, it just came out so I’m sorry if anybody was upset by that.”But the damage had been done. Joy Behar had “misgendered” Jenner, something that I seriously doubt would have happened if Jenner...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign team wasted no time coming after Caitlyn Jenner as she entered the recall race to take his seat. A few hours after Jenner, a Republican, announced her candidacy, Newsom sent an email blast to his donors tying the celebrity and ex-Olympian to former President Trump and asking for funds. "Earlier this morning, Caitlyn Jenner announced she was running for Governor of California as part of this Republican recall attempt," the email read. "What’s more, she is working closely with Donald Trump’s former presidential campaign manager and the person behind his small-dollar fundraising success. "We're going...

    Fox News host Jeanine Pirro agreed with a Minnesota jury's guilty verdict in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and predicted the convictions would hold against an appeal. Pirro, a former district attorney and an ally of former President Donald Trump who often praises law enforcement, said the decision to convict Chauvin of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd was "supported by the facts." "I've tried many murder cases, and I've sat as a judge on murder cases. It is rare that you even get a picture of the victim...

    Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ignited a firestorm on social media and throughout the political world on Tuesday evening after she thanking George Floyd for “sacrificing” his life. “And thank God, the jury validated what we saw, what we saw,” Pelosi said in front of the U.S. Capitol Building as she delivered remarks with the Congressional Black Caucus. “So, again, thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice. For being there to call out to your mom. How heart-breaking was that? To call out to your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’ But because of you – and because of...

    George Bush has quite the gift for timing. Just as Democrats whip up riots, threaten juries, plot to pack the Supreme Court, beaver away to end the filibuster, force critical race theory down schoolchildren's throats, open the border to a cartel profit bonanza and untold migrant misery, out he comes, loudly criticizing his own party. According to Politico: Former President George W. Bush described the modern-day GOP as “isolationist, protectionist, and to a certain extent, nativist” in an interview Tuesday that was packed with implicit criticism of the most recent Republican president. “It’s not exactly my vision” for the party,...

    Now that Chauvin's been convicted, she and the racialist Democrats she leads are working instead with the lure of a mistrial on appeal. When Maxine Waters called for people in the streets of Minnesota to be more active and confrontational if Derek Chauvin were to be acquitted, like many, I thought she had handed a gift to the defense on appeal. In some ways, she did. We all heard Judge Cahill describe her behavior as abhorrent, and, while he didn't think her remarks mattered in terms of the evidence and jury deliberations, he was unequivocal that her actions likely provided...
