    Source: YouTube/ScreenshotSalem radio host Larry Elder announced Monday he is entering the recall election in California to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom. "I’m running for governor because the decline of California isn’t the fault of its people," he said in a press release. "Our government is what’s ruining the Golden State. Our schools are closed to both students and their parents. Our streets aren’t safe from rising violent crime or the disaster of rising homelessness. And the scandals of Sacramento aren’t going to stop on their own. It’s time to tell the truth. We’ve got a state to save." Elder is...

    With zero media attention and an 80-0 vote, the California Assembly has approved a plan to facilitate a reduction in federal income taxes for a constituency consisting mostly of wealthy Californians. Only Californians with income from non-employee business activities operating through partnerships, LLCs and subchapter S corporations will benefit from Assembly Bill 150. Individuals who earn their livings as employees will garner no benefit from AB 150. Individuals who operate their businesses through sole proprietorships or as single member LLCs will also be excluded from any benefit. While California cannot seem to grapple successfully with homelessness, COVID, water, power etc.,...
  • Yes on School Choice -- But It Requires Parental Involvement

    Question my sanity, but I'm considering running in this election to recall California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. Here's a big reason why. No one doubts that bad K-12 public school teachers exist. There is a phenomenon known as the "turkey trot," in which bad teachers wind up in the worst schools. Why? There is a connection between bad schools and lack of parental involvement. When you have strong parental involvement, parents pressure their schools to remove such teachers. Because of strong, protective teachers unions, these teachers are rarely fired, merely shuffled from school to school, until they land in one...
  • San Jose Gun Control Measures Add New Meaning to 'Stupid,' Even by California Standards

    California’s slide into a socialist wasteland is hardly news. What is somewhat surprising, or at least intriguing, are the depths of stupidity to which local and state officials in the “Golden State” will go to fulfilling their destiny. Take, for instance, San Jose’s latest anti-gun gambit – a compulsory tax to pay for the “costs” of criminal gun violence, coupled with a tax directly on lawful gun owners by forcing them to purchase liability insurance. These ordinances most assuredly will be challenged in court, and all but certain to be eventually struck down, even if they survive appeal to the...

    The November 3, 2020, Presidential election data from California sets off alarm bells. Election data generated by the natural voting process will closely match Benford’s Law predictions. (Benford’s Law, or the rule of leading digits, is used as an indicator of fraud in numerical data.) Of course, there can be exceptions, but Benford’s Law points to areas to investigate. Benford’s Law predicts that for real, natural data, the frequency of leading digits (1 through 9) will occur at or near the following percentages of the transactions or tallies. Deviations from these predicted percentages should be investigated. Here are the official...

    I am a native Californian and have lived here since 1962. California has always had its fair share of problems, some episodic and others chronic. The one absolute constant problem is the water supply, which relies primarily on snowmelt from the Sierra mountains and is thus susceptible to drought years. Since California is the largest agricultural producer in the nation, water is critical for farmers, residential consumers, and wildlife. You wouldn’t know there’s a problem, though, if you peruse Governor Gavin Newsom’s website, or, for that matter, the official California website, CA.gov. Here is an excerpt from Newsom’s splash page:...

    A multihome compound in Lake Tahoe with connections to Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her investment banker husband Richard C. Blum is up for sale according to Realtor.com. The waterfront property on Rubicon Bay is listed for $41 million, a price cut from its original listing price of $46 million in October 2020. It includes a private sand beach, a 172-foot pier, a boat lift and four buoys. There are three separate homes on the 4.75-acre estate. The property was purchased for $9.7 million in 2007, according to public records. It is owned by an LLC tied to Blum’s investment management...
  • Don’t Ban Assault Weapons – Make Them Mandatory!

    I was gravely disappointed with Judge Robert Benitez’s California federal court ruling that the Golden State’s ban on “assault weapons” like AR-15s is unconstitutional. It manifestly is unconstitutional, but the judge’s ruling does not go far enough. He should have found that our Constitution requires every healthy, law-abiding adult citizen to have a real assault rifle like an M16 – or, because diversity is important, an M4 – to defend his community and his country from all enemies both foreign and domestic. That’s my modest proposal du jour – make our peaceful and secure society’s free riders carry their own...

    Townhall.com ^ | June 9, 2021 | Jacob Sullum
    When California legislators enacted the country's first ban on military-style rifles in 1989, they gave no weight to the fundamental right of armed self-defense guaranteed by the Second Amendment: a right the U.S. Supreme Court did not explicitly acknowledge until nearly two decades later. But as U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez observed in his ruling against California's "assault weapon" ban last Friday, it should now be clear that the outright prohibition of such firearms cannot pass constitutional muster. California's Assault Weapons Control Act, which is similar to laws enforced by a handful of other states, originally applied to a list...

    On April 12, President Joe Biden nominated David Chipman to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Chipman -- the king of confiscation -- is a supporter of California's laws banning the sale or ownership of so-called assault weapons. For those of us who support the Second Amendment, confirming him to lead ATF is like asking a vampire to guard the local blood bank. Don't surrender! On June 4, Judge Roger T. Benitez, appointed to the federal bench in the Southern District of California by President George W. Bush, offered hope for common sense to prevail. In his 94-page...

    Last summer, when a heat wave rolled across the western United States, California residents experienced energy blackouts as a result of a difficult-to-manage power grid. Even after that experience, which put residents’ health at risk due to excessive heat exposure, California continued its push to ban fracking, shut down nuclear power plants, and rely solely on renewable energy. Now, anew report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) states that “California is at risk of energy emergencies during periods of normal peak summer demand and high risk when above-normal demand is widespread in the west.” The report says that...

    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...

    An Asian man was arrested last night by California police, after abducting a woman who he thought was white so he could rape her in revenge for supposed anti-Asian hate crimes. Irvine Police arrested Michael Sangbong Rhee, a 37-year-old Asian male, on Friday night for kidnapping with the intent to commit a sexual assault against an Asian woman. In a press release, Irvine PD said that Rhee forced the woman at gunpoint into the back of her car when she was outside her apartment complex on Thursday afternoon. After committing “sexual battery” on the woman, Rhee fled when she alerted...

    The federal Veterans Administration (VA) leadership had negotiated free data (not counted against anyone’s wireless data cap) with all major providers for an app called VA Video Connection. This allows veterans nationwide to access telemedicine for appointments, counseling, and other critical services digitally, even when they have lower cost plans with limited data levels. This app is very data intensive, as most high-end streaming video conferencing programs are. The service would be way outside the cost capability of many lower income vets without the deal made by the VA. Sadly, under a new law, passed in 2018, but put into...

    In an open letter to San Francisco Bay View National Black newspaper, USF Black Student Union President Brianna Johnson had demanded the university release the identity of the person responsible for hanging the noose, evict them from student housing and expel them from the university. Johnson also called on the university to quickly and widely disclose hate crimes and proactively provide wellness checks for students who might be emotionally affected. Fitzgerald said in an earlier response to the Black Student Union that it would not identify the student, citing federal and university privacy requirements. But he said the university would...

    Something strange is going on out in Marin County, California. The elected officials there have instituted a pilot program offering a universal basic income in the form of a monthly stipend to a limited number of participants. That in and of itself isn’t unique, as programs such as this have been tested in other places, such as Stockton, California. A couple of aspects of this program, however, really are unique. The most glaring among these is the fact that in order to qualify, participants have to be women. No males need apply. On top of that, the program is not...

    I will never forget my first lesson in politics. It came early in life and involved California teachers unions. I attended public school, K-12, in Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) located in affluent South Orange County. It’s a district known for high graduation rates and sought-after schools.In first grade, I caught daily sightings of teachers protesting their grievances with supposed low pay. How could this be, especially in ritzy South Orange County? It seemed inconceivable to me. But what did I know then? I was simply a “brainwashed” daughter of Republican voters.It turns out, however, CUSD teachers are paid handsome...

    The New Yorker interview with San Francisco's school board president reveals how political ideology has replaced knowledge among especially younger American leftists.Last week, The New Yorker ran an interview with San Francisco school board President Gabriela López, a 30-year-old former teacher leading the district’s charge to bury American history. It’s eye-opening, to say the least.López was elected on a campaign to cancel history. Under her leadership, the nation’s seventh-largest school district has spent its time not teaching its 57,000 students — who have been “learning” online for nearly a full year — but plotting to take the names of historic...

    They do their business and I do mine. We are not bad people.”Indeed they do. And then some. Those are the words of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) in 2004, in reference to a report by the Los Angeles Times that found various Waters family members had pocketed a total of more than $1 million over eight years from businesses and campaigns with a connection to the congresswoman. Shockingly,” Waters “separated herself from any ties to those activities.”Welp, that was then and this is now.I don’t know whether Mad Maxine and her family are good people or “bad people,” but I...
