    San Francisco Mayor London Breed said Monday “Bloomberg Technology” that her city has constantly been cleaning streets and helping the homeless get shelter while discussing preparing for the APEC Summit of President Joe Biden and China’s Xi Jinping. Host Ed Ludlow said, “Why has it taken the visit of U.S. President Biden, China’s President Xi, leaders around the world for action on all of the problems the city has been talking about for 4 years now?” Breed said, “Just to be clear, we have been working on this for a few years. This is not an issue have been sitting...

    Over the last few years, the idea of reparations — which would compensate the descendants of American slaves — has surfaced across the country. Though a state task force recently recommended making cash reparations a reality in California, voters in the Golden State oppose doing so by a roughly two-to-one margin, according to a new poll from the Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies.

    Newsweek ^ | 9/4/23 | Matthew Impelli
    Health officials in California recently spoke about the possible return of mask mandates in the state amid a slight uptick in COVID-19 cases. On Thursday, officials with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health held a press conference to speak about a rise in new COVID-19 cases, saying that over the past week cases have doubled. During the press conference, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer was asked about the potential return to mask mandates and if the county would ever make them mandatory again. "'Ever' is not a word I'm comfortable with. There's...

    California Republican officials and lawmakers at the state and national levels spent Monday promoting the party’s “Bank Your Vote” campaign, which is meant to boost turnout among conservative voters by encouraging them to take advantage of mail-in ballots ahead of Election Day next year. “To win in 2024, we know Republicans must reach more voters than ever before, which is exactly what we are doing through the ‘Bank Your Vote’ program,” Jessica Millan Patterson, chairwoman of the California Republican Party, reportedly said on a Monday call with news outlets. What’s going unsaid in the praise for mail-in ballots is exactly...

    We have a truck camper (slide in pickup camper) and typically camp in remote areas or national forests or national parks where there is no electrical hook-ups. This means, like many other campers, we depend on our gas-operated refrigerator to keep our food cold or frozen. Due to our age it is no longer comfortable to be climbing into the camper and especially out of bed at night, so we decided to get a conventional ball-hitch travel trailer. To our amazement the majority of new travel trailers we looked at were all 12v batter powered only, that relied on a...
  • Would an occasional blackout help solve climate change?

    What’s more important: Keeping the lights on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, or solving the climate crisis? That is in many ways a terrible qBut absent major breakthroughs in carbon-capture technology, we’ll eventually need to shutter most if not all of those gas plants to avoid disastrous temperature jumps. Scientists say we need to cut carbon pollution nearly in half by 2030. Could we get started ditching gas sooner — and save some money — by accepting a few more blackouts for the next few years? It’s a heretical question in power-grid circles. When I posed it...

    Across social media, videos show a brawl breaking out at Riverside's Martin Luther King High School. What began as two students arguing on campus turned into a brawl involving a student who identifies as transgender. While fights aren't uncommon on high school campuses across the country, but families and students at MLK tell FOX 11 that the transgender student from the viral fight video has a history of erratic and uncomfortable behavior. Parents and students tell FOX 11 that the said student has access to the girls' locker rooms and bathrooms. "He's [in the] girls' locker room, using girls' restrooms,"...

  • Quotas Are Unconstitutional, Whether They Harm White People or Minority Groups

    04/06/2022 7:43:03 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | April 6, 2022 | Betsy McCaughey
    At work, white people are being told to check their privilege at the door. But a court ruling on Friday indicates there's still hope for fair treatment in the corporate world, even if you're not a racial minority. On April 1, a California court struck down a state law mandating that corporate boards seats be reserved for people of minority groups. The court said quotas violated the state's constitutional guarantee that everyone is treated equally under the law. Equal protection isn't just for minority races. It's everyone's right. Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first African American on the U.S. Supreme Court,...

    I can already anticipate how many of you are going to be completely shocked and surprised by this report. (For anyone qualifying for that category, welcome to the internet!) California is a place where COVID mandates flow like water, with vaccination and mask mandates showing up at the state and municipal levels up and down the coast. But as we’ve already learned plenty of times in the past, the officials issuing these mandates don’t always wind up obeying them themselves. This weekend during the big NFL playoff game in Los Angeles, another such instance was recorded for posterity. The game...
  • Buyer’s remorse versus the State of California

    American ^ | January 27, 2022 | Terry Paulding
    A new bill has been proposed in California’s legislature. State senator Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) wants to require COVID “vaccination” for all the state’s schoolchildren, K-12 ostensibly to make schools “safe.” Meanwhile, there’s reality, which dictates that buyer’s remorse is hitting the populace in heavily vaccinated countries. But still, the press ignores it all. In Israel, with a 95% vaccination rate, there are currently nearly 450,000 active cases. There are fewer than 10,000,000 Israeli citizens, so around one in 20 Israelis currently have COVID. Denmark is similar—highly vaccinated, with an infection rate higher than ever before. Higher, even, than before there...
  • No Wonder Why People and Businesses Are Dumping California

    A recent study by the Cato Institute, the libertarian think tank, ranked California 48th out of the 50 states in personal and economic freedom. The study also examines fiscal policy and regulatory policy. For the first time, California's population decreased last year, resulting in the loss of a congressional seat. In the third quarter of this year, 150,000 more people on average left the state versus 60,000 net departures in the first quarter of last year. Between March 2020 and September 2021, there has been a 38% decrease in new arrivals. California has 58 counties, and new arrivals fell in...
  • California Solidifies its Status as Irrationally Anti-Second Amendment

    Neither California nor California-based judges miss an opportunity to display their anti-Second Amendment bias, most recently in a pair of federal court rulings upholding the state’s bans on so-called “assault weapons” and on firearms magazines able to hold more than 10 rounds. The state’s anti-firearms laws, and their support from the still-liberal Ninth Circuit panel of judges, highlight a problem that continues to bedevil Second Amendment supporters – that is, defending the Bill of Rights’ guarantee of the “right to keep and bear arms” in terms of need rather than principle. In a report I authored for the Heritage Foundation...
  • California Dead Set on Becoming America’s Leader in Child-Killing

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared today that the Golden State is determined to become the epicenter for the intentional killing of unborn children in the United States. Of course, he didn’t phrase it quite that way, but it is the intended outcome. At some point, people are going to have to start believing that abortion-choice advocates mean what they say. What other conclusion can concerned citizens reach when the California Future of Abortion Council files a report – conveniently located on the website – detailing how California plans to: - Help to cover the transportation and abortion costs for...
  • The Tarnishing of the Golden State

    The state of California has declared that it wants to be a "sanctuary" for abortion. The Golden State powers-that-be have assembled the California Future of Abortion Council (FAB) to make that wish a reality. Someone should have checked the acronym. What's fab about it? It's fabulously devoid of the moral sense that Bill Clinton's "safe, legal and rare" language at least acknowledged. Not that long ago, Democratic advocates of abortion did not celebrate the life-ending procedure, at least in public. Not so much anymore. One of FAB's priorities is to "meaningfully address misinformation and disinformation and ensure that access to...
  • Who Will Repair Kamala Harris' Broken Glass Ceiling?

    11/29/2021 5:18:16 AM PST · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | November 29, 2021 | Lloyd Pettegrew
    When a woman breaks the glass ceiling that all women allegedly face, the question remains who will pick up all the broken pieces of glass? Most certainly, there is a price to pay be it reasonable or unfortunate. For Kamala Harris, it is certainly the price paid by the Democrat Party and legacy media. Allow me to explain. Before Kamala ascended to the vice-presidential throne, and while she was still competing against the battery of Democrat presidential hopefuls, she made false accusations about candidate Biden. As Daniel Greenfield wrote recently, “When Kamala tried to force Biden out of the race...

    I ran into an old California buddy online Sunday. He asked me why I moved to Texas. We didn’t have a lot of time, so I gave him the shortest explanation I could: “It’s not California.” For the 10 or so friends, all former Californians, who have moved near us in Texas in the last year or so, no further explanation is needed. In Texas 80 looters don’t pull their cars up to swankiest department stores and loot the place in broad daylight with impunity. San Francisco is different, and has been for a long time, nearly as long as...

    I want to thank the Democrats for giving me, a trial lawyer living in Los Angeles, exactly what I need – a big, heaping tax cut. In their reconciliation bill, there are plenty of giveaways for lay-abouts, losers, and grifters, but also for us living by the beach getting hit with huge state taxes rendered un-deductible by that evil Donald Trump, notorious friend to the rich who he…shafted. Anyway, the Dems are going to wrong this right and fix this manifest justice, though – they are going to make essentially all the money I hand over to the socialist clique...
