Title: California's Communist Fascist Super Majority
Post by: TahoeBlue on January 07, 2013, 01:12:43 pm
California Democrats' supermajority powers will be short-lived
By Steven Harmon
Posted:   12/03/2012 08:48:42 AM PST

SACRAMENTO -- When Democrats last month achieved broad taxing powers by capturing supermajorities in both chambers of the Legislature, Democratic leaders immediately ruled out new taxes, saying they didn't want to be seen as overreaching just after voters approved Gov. Jerry Brown's $6 billion annual tax hike.

"We will exercise this new power with strength, but also with humility and reason,'' promised Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg.

But it turns out the call for restraint wasn't as magnanimous as it may have seemed.

That's because the Democrats' supermajority status will be short-lived, wiped out for most of 2013 because a spate of expected vacancies and special elections will whittle their ranks to below the two-thirds threshold in the Assembly.

"There will be a very short window that Democrats will have the supermajority," said Eric Bauman, vice chairman of the state Democratic Party. "So I've been cautioning party activists to be patient."

Assembly Democrats will lose their two-thirds majority in late April if, as expected, Assembly members Ben Hueso, D-Chula Vista, and Norma Torres, D-Pomona, win special elections for seats that open when two state senators leave for Congress. And the Assembly will likely lose two other members when one runs for the Los Angeles City Council and another leaps to the Senate after another senator also runs for the council. If that all happens, Assembly Democrats won't be able to recapture their supermajority until January 2014.

On Monday, Legislators return to Sacramento for a day of swearing-in, but Democrats are holding caucus meetings to hash out differences over how they will use the two-thirds power.
California's Democratic Supermajority Promises Not To Abuse New Power
Los Angeles Daily News  |  By Rick Orlov and Andrew Edwards Posted: 12/04/2012 5:56 pm EST
Fueled by a Democratic supermajority and a bumper crop of new faces, California lawmakers launched their new two-year session on Monday, planning to turn their immediate attention to health care and the state budget.
Democrats have a two-thirds majority in the Assembly and Senate for the first time since 1883. That means they have the power to approve new taxes and get constitutional amendments on the ballot without a single Republican vote, but they said Monday they will be cautious not to abuse that new authority.
In his remarks to the new Assembly, Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles, noted the body has a "sober profound responsibility" facing it this coming year.
"We have a special moment as we begin a new legislative year," Perez said.
That supermajority may be short-lived because several seats are expected to open up in 2013 for special elections as members seek other elected offices before their legislative terms expire.
The new class is also marked by the highest number of freshman legislators -- 39 -- since 1966. But that's not likely to be matched anytime soon, as a new revision to term limits will let incumbents remain in the same office for a longer time.

Governor Jerry Brown signs bill hiking California minimum wage
Posted: 09/25/2013
Christopher Weber  

Calling it a "matter of justice," Gov. Jerry Brown put his signature on a bill that will hike California's minimum wage to $10 an hour within three years, making it one of the highest rates in the nation.

The legislation signed Wednesday at a ceremony in downtown Los Angeles will gradually raise the current minimum of $8 an hour to $9 on July 1, 2014, then to $10 on Jan. 1, 2016.

The increase is the first to the state's minimum wage in six years and comes amid a national debate over whether it's fair to pay fast-food workers, retail clerks and others wages so low that they often have to work second or third jobs.

Brown called the bill an overdue piece of legislation that will help working-class families and close the gap between "workers at the bottom and those who occupy the commanding heights of the economy."

The governor was joined by state legislators and business owners who supported the measure, saying increased wages would boost the state's economy.

The state Senate approved AB10 on a 26-11 vote Sept. 12, and the Assembly followed hours later on a 51-25 vote. Both chambers voted largely along party lines.

Miguel Aguilar, a worker at a Los Angeles car wash, thanked the governor for signing the bill.

In opposing the measure, Republican lawmakers said increased wages would encourage businesses to cut jobs and automate.

The California Chamber of Commerce was against the bill, saying it will drive up businesses' costs by ratcheting up other wages and workers' compensation payments.

"Small business owners will now be forced to make tough choices including reducing employee hours, cutting positions entirely, and for many, closing their doors altogether," said John Kabateck, head of the California branch of the National Federation of Independent Business.

Federal law sets a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, but California is among 19 states and the District of Columbia that set a higher state minimum wage.
California adds 29,100 jobs; state unemployment rate ticks up to 8.9%
By Ricardo Lopez
September 20, 2013, 7:33 a.m.

California employers added 29,100 payroll jobs in August, posting one of the largest job gains in the nation but the unemployment rate still ticked up to 8.9% from 8.7% the month before, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.  
Since August 2012, California employers have added 223,900 net jobs. The state continues outpacing the U.S. in nonfarm payroll growth, but the rate has slowed slightly to 1.5% in the last year. Earlier this year, California's payroll growth rate hovered closer to 2%.

Nevada had the highest unemployment rate last month at 9.5% followed by Illinois at 9.2%.

California immigrant driver's licenses bring many questions
By JEREMY B. WHITE | The Sacramento Bee

SACRAMENTO, Calif. —  The ride Isabel Medina was waiting for never arrived.

She and her husband, Felipe, both live in the United States illegally - they came from Mexico in 1996 - and one night eight years ago Isabel was in the hospital, waiting for Felipe to pick her up. He didn't show. She eventually made her way home to find that Felipe had been pulled over for a traffic violation. The car was impounded, the couple had to pay $1,500, and they never got the car back
Soon, they could do so legally. After a decade of failed attempts, California appears poised to join the small but growing number of states that offer driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants.

Assuming Gov. Jerry Brown signs legislation on his desk, as he has said he would, California will move down a regulatory road to determine what, exactly, driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants look like. It is a question that fueled skepticism around the legislation, Assembly Bill 60, compelling the bill's author to briefly pull the measure as the 2013 session dwindled to its final hours.

Asked about the new licenses potentially flagging her as undocumented, Medina sounded unfazed. She hopes Brown will sign a separate bill, known informally as the Trust Act, designed to limit deportations stemming from minor violations like traffic infractions. She also has been volunteering with an immigrant rights organization, the Coalition of Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, and has acquired a new perspective.

"What I really think is that it's not time to be afraid," Medina said. "If you know your rights," she added, "you will be safe and have your family together here in the United States."

The Legislature has concluded its work; once Brown signs the bill, the agencies take over.

California Governor Salutes Illegal Aliens as Economically Valuable


Gov Jerry Brown is known as a big friend of open borders and amnesty, and he even supported a state DREAM Act during his gubernatorial campaign. More recently, he demonstrated his loyalty to those issues by signing the DREAM Act into law so illegal alien college students can get a taxpayer-subsidized college education (at a cost of $65 million annually), even as the state is closing parks because of red ink.

Brown appeared on San Francisco’s KGO radio earlier this week and answered call-in questions. He thinks that “the undocumented” are a financial resource for the state, when even liberal columnist George Skelton estimates the cost of illegals to be at least $5 billion annually. (Ten billion would be a start.)


When a caller asked about the cost of illegal immigrants to the state — and Owens followed up with remarks about the the undocumented population using school, prison and other resources — the governor didn’t skip a beat.

“Most of them are doing a hell of a lot of work, and most of the food you eat was picked by undocumented workers,” he said. “It’s one of the reasons California is still growing. We need people to buy homes. We also need immigration reform and border security, but don’t just scapegoat people … By the way if nobody came to California anymore, your property value would go down.”

Owens pushed that point, asking the governor if he really believed illegal immigrants help keep property values up.

“I’m telling you if 2 million undocumented people were rounded up tomorrow, and put on buses and sent to the foriegn countries from which they came, there would be a massive drop economic activity. They are working, buying things, paying for things,” he said.

Brown argued there ought to be a path to citizenship, noting he signed the Dream Act — allowing some undoucmented college students to apply for financial aide — and saying he is “glad” if a kids with farm worker parents go on to succeed in the business world.

TRUST Act vetoed: Latinos lose trust in Gov. Jerry Brown   
Posted on October 3, 2012
By Ruben NavarretteImmigration
Gov. Jerry Brown signs bill to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses but vetoes TRUST Act.

SAN DIEGO — California Gov. Jerry Brown is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a Mexican hat dance.

The Democrat signed one bill that will probably wind up helping a small number of people and, with regard to another bill, issued a veto that will likely hurt many more.

The bill that Brown signed gives driver’s licenses to young illegal immigrants, i.e., DREAMers, who are given deferred action by the Obama administration. It impacts a sliver of the estimated three million illegal immigrants in California, most of whom come from Mexico. Nationwide, only about 120,000 DREAMers stepped forward to apply for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. To date, according to an immigration lawyer who handled one of the cases, fewer than 100 people in the entire country have been granted the two-year reprieve from deportation.

Meanwhile, the bill that Brown vetoed—known as the TRUST Act—impacted thousands of lives. It would have barred local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration agents in detaining suspects for deportation unless they were charged with serious or violent felonies.

Currently, a nanny who is undocumented but has no criminal record can be pulled over for a busted taillight and get arrested, fingerprinted and handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation.

Brown vetoes TRUST Act, insults Californians

Brown’s veto of the Trust Act was a mistake. But what was really offensive—and a wakeup call to Latinos who sheepishly give Democrats a pass on their immigration foibles while hammering Republicans—was how he tried to justify it.

The governor’s statement on the veto was only 226 words. Yet remarkably, in that small space, he managed to insult the intelligence of Californians three different times

Recorded Police Brutality? Calif. Bill Would Require Remote Phone Kill Switch


Lawmakers in California plan to propose a first-in-the-nation requirement that smartphones and tablets have “kill switches” to be used in case of theft, according to reports.

State Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) plans to introduce a bill that would require all such devices to include some kind of feature that allows remote disabling by Jan. 1, 2015. San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck all back the measure, which proponents argue would eliminate the black-market value of smartphones.

If a state as large as California passes the bill, it’s very possible it could become a de facto nationwide standard. At the end of December, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) called on industry to embrace a self-imposed ‘kill switch’ standard after high-profile thefts in her state. And, in November, 31 state attorneys general pushed for the same. In large cities, such as New York or Washington, D.C., roughly 40 percent of all thefts now involve smartphones. More than half of thefts in San Francisco now involve a mobile device, the city District Attorney’s office told the Associated Press.

According to a study of 2011 data by mobile security firm Lookout, the cities where residents are most likely to lose their phones are, in order: Philadelphia, Seattle, Oakland, Ca., Long Beach, Ca., Newark, Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, New York and Boston. In Philadelphia and Seattle, residents lost smartphones an average of twice a year.

Industry and some consumers have voiced concerns that the feature could open doors to hackers or the government taking control of the devices.

Get ready for $1 plastic bag tax and or ban,0,3607652.story#axzz2rMv8HpT2
Compromise bill would ban plastic bags throughout California
By Patrick McGreevy
January 23, 2014, 2:38 p.m.

SACRAMENTO -- Key legislative opponents of a bill to ban plastic single-use grocery bags in California have negotiated changes that they say will allow them to support a new measure and help it win enough votes to pass this year.

Californians would pay at least 10 cents for each recycled paper bag or resusable plastic bag they get from the grocery store, and single-use plastic bags would be prohibited starting next year under a new compromise bill to be introduced by lawmakers, officials said Thursday.

After three unsuccessful attempts to outlaw plastic carry-out grocery bags, supporters of the bill say they are confident it will receive at least the 21 votes needed in the Senate for passage.

“This breaks a decade-long deadlock on a statewide solution,” said Mark Murray, executive director of Californians Against Waste. “This bill is going to eliminate some 20-billion single-use plastic bags that become litter.”

The agreement will be announced Friday at a Vernon plastics plant that had opposed last year’s bill but supports the new measure, in part, because it includes financial incentives for retraining workers.
The new bill will start out in the Assembly, which previously had approved a similar measure.


artdmainman at 3:08 PM January 24, 2014
This is total garbage. I find nothing wrong with the plastic bag use. This  ban so far haven't served any purpose that I've see since they started banning plastic bags in stores, at least in the copycat city of Long Beach since they always like to follow suit to whatever LA does except putting up a grading systems for restaurants. Now you have to pay another 10 cents for a paper bag for your groceries, and some stores have paper bags without handles on them. How 1960's is that? What a dumb law so far that doesn't make to much sense. I hope this bill doesn't pass.

barbelr at 9:43 AM January 24, 2014
The plastic bags that I get from the store are never single use.  They go through a lot before I get rid of them.  Single use bags are the ones you put your fruits & veggies In Oh, and the meat.  How many salmonella cases have there been here because of “reusable bags”?  What sense is it to ban grocery bags (as single use) & not ban the others?  Get your friends to gather & buy bags from wholesales.  The money collected by the stores is a tax.  If it is a tax the people should vote.  I also think is should be voted on city by city.

One last thing, the governor wants us to use less water, so I have stopped recycling.  Our city wants the stuff to be clean.  To get it clean I have to use water.  Well no more. I’m tired of the state telling us what to do.

droberts0018 at 12:11 AM January 24, 2014
We'll being in Los Angeles and having gone through this I think this is something that should be added to a ballot that the people of California vote on. This state just keeps trying to find new ways to tax us. Anyone that tells you this isn't a tax is crazy. I really can't wait until I can leave this state. Until then I went to amazon and bought 900 plastic bags for $20.50 less the 3 cents a bag. Not the 10 cents the city wants me to pay.   Oh yeah and since this went into effect in Los Angeles the stores no longer offer you anything for bringing in your reuseable bags and I now notice at Ralph's the cashier rings you up and let's customers bag their own stuff. Watch out box boys your days are numbered

California Democrats wrap up budget, flex supermajority power

As the state Senate finished voting today on a bill to extend a tax on managed care plans, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg told reporters at the back of the room, "That is what's called a supermajority."

The measure was a relatively modest part of the annual budget package wrapped up by the Legislature today, but it required a two-thirds vote and afforded Democrats an opportunity to flex the supermajority power they gained in November elections.

Democrats in the Assembly mustered two-thirds not only for the managed care tax, but also for a bill that would ask voters to lower from two-thirds to 55 percent the voter-approval threshold for a local government to incur bonded indebtedness for certain public improvements. It is one of several Democratic proposals to lower the voter-approval threshold on local tax and revenue measures.

Assemblyman Don Wagner, R-Irvine, said, "You know and I know that bond is just a four-letter word for tax."
Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to sign the spending plan before the next fiscal year begins July 1. After the Senate and Assembly adjourned for the day, he issued a statement on Twitter

Gov. Brown signs 'Trust Act' prohibiting detaining undocumented for deportation in minor arrests
 KPCC Staff with Associated Press | October 5th, 2013, 11:16am

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill into California law that prohibits the LAPD and other local law enforcement agencies from detaining people for deportation if they are arrested for a minor crime and otherwise eligible to be released from custody.

AB4 by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, was one of eight immigration-related measures Brown signed on Saturday. The governor also approved a bill allowing lawyers to be admitted to the California bar even if they're living in the U.S. illegally.

“While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead," Brown said in a statement. “I’m not waiting.”

Other immigration related bills that the governor signed:
•AB 35 by Assemblymember Roger Hernández (D-West Covina) – Provides that immigration consultants, attorneys, notaries public, and organizations accredited by the United States Board of Immigration Appeals are the only individuals authorized to charge a fee for providing services associated with filing an application under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's deferred action program.
•AB 524 by Assemblymember Kevin Mullin (D-South San Francisco) – Provides that a threat to report the immigration status or suspected immigration status of an individual or the individual's family may induce fear sufficient to constitute extortion.
•AB 1024 by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) – Allows applicants, who are not lawfully present in the United States, to be admitted as an attorney at law.
•AB 1159 by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) – Imposes various restrictions and obligations on persons who offer services related to comprehensive immigration reform.
•SB 141 by Senator Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) – Requires that the California Community Colleges and the California State University, and requests that the University of California, exempt a United States citizen who resides in a foreign country, and is in their first year as a matriculated student, from nonresident tuition if the student demonstrates financial need, has a parent or guardian who was deported or voluntarily departed from the U. S., lived in California immediately before moving abroad, and attended a secondary school in California for at least three years.
•SB 150 by Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) – Authorizes a community college district to exempt pupils attending community colleges as a special part-time student from paying nonresident tuition.
SB 666 by Senator Steinberg (D-Sacramento) – Provides for a suspension or revocation of an employer's business license for retaliation against employees and others on the basis of citizenship and immigration status, and establishes a civil penalty up to $10,000 per violation.

Hearst Corp. Near Deal to Preserve Vast California Ranch

The American Land Conservancy is expected to spend more than $100 million for Hearst's development rights, with financing from public and private sources.

The Hearst Corporation has been considering developing the property for decades, most recently presenting a plan for a luxury golf resort, a 650-room hotel and a dude ranch. The proposal provoked a public outcry and was voted down by the California Coastal Commission in 1998.

Last year, the company took a different tack, entering negotiations with the Nature Conservancy and the Conservation Fund. Those negotiations broke off earlier this month -- a confidentiality agreement prevented the parties from saying why -- and Hearst turned to the American Land Conservancy, a group based in San Francisco that has brokered public trust land deals throughout the country.
Hearst said the 27 homes would be developed east of coastal State Highway 1. It was unclear how large they would be. In holding onto the 27 lots, Hearst is abandoning rights to build on 244 others. The company said the inn it was proposing would be significantly smaller than the 375-room structure recommended by the Coastal Commission staff.

Gov. Jerry Brown to unveil new $687-million drought proposal
By Anthony York
February 19, 2014, 11:04 a.m.

SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic leaders will unveil a $687-million proposal Wednesday afternoon aimed at helping California deal with its drought emergency.

The new legislation would speed up the spending of millions of dollars aimed at improving water conservation and cleaning up drinking water supplies, while increasing penalties for illegal diversion of water supplies.

Most of the money in the proposal -- about $550 million worth -- would come from existing bond money approved by voters, according to sources familiar with the proposal. There are no new taxes or fees on water use in the plan.

The proposal would also tap $40 million in money raised from fees on polluters to enhance water and energy conservation projects.
Government Money Is No Answer to California Drought
By Steven Greenhut  Feb 12, 2014

With no way forward, the state’s water wars have reignited, as the usual suspects -- farmers, cities, environmentalists -- battle over “their” fair share. The conflict has intensified since officials announced late last month that water agencies can expect zero deliveries from the California State Water Project this year. This is the first time in the project’s history that the enormous system of dams and canals won’t provide any water, leaving local regions largely on their own.

The most divisive battleground has been in Washington. California Republicans representing agricultural districts pushed through a House bill that would divert water away from river restoration and other environmental projects and toward farms. Democrats are expected to kill such legislation in the Senate. If they don't, President Barack Obama will veto the bill, on the grounds that it "would undermine years of collaboration between local, state and federal stakeholders to develop a sound water quality control plan."
"You cannot conserve what you don't have," said Gary Arant, a board member of the San Diego County Water Authority, referring to environmentalists' efforts to fight more dams and other storage projects (reflecting his personal view, and not necessarily that of his agency).
The plan being announced today would direct roughly $475 million toward local governments that are ready to build drought alleviation projects. The money would come from Proposition 84, a water bond voters approved in 2006.

The bill also calls for spending roughly $50 million -- largely from a housing bond voters approved in 2006 -- to provide emergency food and shelter to people who are out of work because the farms they normally work on are fallow due to drought.

Another roughly $40 million from cap-and-trade funds would be spent on water efficiency projects that save energy, while roughly $80 million from a 2006 flood bond would be available for projects that prevent flooding while making more water available for dry times, such as infrastructure to capture storm water.

This act rebuilds and repairs California's most vulnerable flood control structures to protect homes and prevent loss of life from flood-related disasters, including levee failures, flash floods, and mudslides; it protects California's drinking water supply system by rebuilding delta levees that are vulnerable to earthquakes and storms; by authorizing a $4.09 billion dollar bond act.

The Man-Made California Drought

Get the Facts:
Fallow farmland in California's Central Valley.

• California’s water storage and transportation system designed by federal and state governments includes 1,200 miles of canals and nearly 50 reservoirs that provide water to about 22 million people and irrigate about four million acres of land throughout the state.

In May 2007, a Federal District Court Judge ruled that increased amounts of water had to be re-allocated towards protecting the Delta smelt – a three-inch fish on the Endangered Species List.

• Because of this ruling, in 2009 and 2010 more than 300 billion gallons (or 1 million acre-feet) of water were diverted away from farmers in the Central Valley and into the San Francisco Bay – eventually going out into the Pacific Ocean.

• This man-made drought cost thousands of farm workers their jobs, inflicted up to 40 percent unemployment in certain communities, and fallowed hundreds of thousands of acres of fertile farmland.

Unemployment remains at a regional average of 17%. With current precipitation at near-record lows, the same regulations will be imposed pushing unemployment even higher.

The Pelosi-led Congress did nothing to reverse the plight of the San Joaquin Valley and even obstructed repeated Republican actions to reverse the situation. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act reflects Republican promises to avoid another man-made drought.

H.R. 1837, The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act:

• H.R. 1837, The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act, is a comprehensive solution that would restore water deliveries that have been cut-off due to federal regulations and environmental lawsuits, ensure a reliable water supply for people and fish, secure water rights, and save taxpayer money by ending unnecessary and dubious government projects.

• The bill could create up to 30,000 jobs, generate up to $300 million in expedited federal revenue, and save American taxpayers and ratepayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

• Highlights of the bill:
◦Restores water deliveries to communities by codifying the historic, bipartisan State/Federal agreement known as the “Bay-Delta Accord.”
◦ Reforms punitive federal laws, the Central Valley Project Improvement Act and the San Joaquin River Restoration Settlement Act in order to provide fairness to ratepayers, promote transparency and accountability, and save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

◦ Allows water users to pay off federal debt early.

◦ Protects and secures private property and senior water rights.

Wearing handcuffs and shackles, Calderon pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Monday and was set to be released upon releasing his passport and his wife signing a $50,000 surety bond. A trial date was set for April 22.

Tom Calderon, the state lawmaker’s brother, also faces charges in connection with the alleged scheme.

“The charges allege that the defendants traded influence for cash, and used kickbacks and other tactics to keep the system working in their favor,” said Bill Lewis, FBI assistant director in charge.

The indictment charges Ron Calderon with mail fraud, wire fraud, honest services fraud, bribery, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and money laundering and aiding in the filing of false tax returns.

Ron Calderon is also accused of paying his daughter $39,000 for a bogus office job and paying around $30,000 for his son’s schooling.


Prosecutors said Ron Calderon accepted $28,000 in bribes from Michael D. Drobot, former owner of the now-closed Pacific Hospital of Long Beach, in exchange for supporting legislation that “delay or limit changes in California’s workers’ compensation laws relating to the amount of medical care providers are reimbursed for performing spinal surgeries.”

Drobot has agreed to plead guilty regarding a major health care fraud scheme in another case announced by the U.S. Attorney’s office Friday.

The charges against the hospital executive involve tens of millions of dollars in illegal kickbacks in exchange for a huge number of patient referrals who received spinal surgeries. The referrals led to more than $500 million in bills, which were fraudulently submitted and, in large part, paid by the California worker’s compensation system, prosecutors said.

Law-enforcement sources described the allegations as what could be one of the largest health care fraud cases in state history.

Drobot is suspected of having had a heavy hand for some 15 years in the alleged kick-back scheme, which exploited the spinal pass-through law, which Ron Calderon allegedly kept on the books after receiving bribes from Drobot, authorities said.

If convicted, Ron Calderon faces up to 396 years in prison. Tom Calderon faces up to 160 years behind bars.

Outsider Art: The Arts Commission Isn't Entirely Sure Where All of its Paintings Are Hanging
By Joe Eskenazi Wednesday, Feb 19 2014

Last week, SF Weekly visited all the de Young Museum paintings on loan to public officials that it could — until Supervisor Eric Mar's staff gave us the boot.

A longer, less certain, and far less satisfying art tour would be chasing down the San Francisco Arts Commission's 754 works on loan to 183 city agencies and offices. That'd be a lot of art even if you knew where it all is.

The Arts Commission does not.

Absent that vital knowledge, its "Loan Program" has been on hold for several years; a "comprehensive inventory" of its roster was initiated in January 2013. In short, the Arts Commission has been reticent to lend out any more art until it's certain it knows exactly where the art it already has loaned out is located (or not located). "The inventory will inform us if there are works that are unaccounted for," sums up commission spokeswoman Kate Patterson-Murphy.

And yet, even if they did know, they wouldn't let on: "For security reasons, we don't make a practice of sharing the exact locations of the two-dimensional artworks," says Patterson-Murphy.

The inventory is expected to conclude in July. At that point, perhaps, the Arts Commission can decline to share the location of the paintings it can't find.

Museum of Scattered Art: We Visit the de Young Paintings Loaned to Elected Officials -- Whether They Like It or Not
By Joe Eskenazi Wednesday, Feb 12 2014

Attaining political office in San Francisco, it turns out, comes with an upside other than being ritualistically berated in public by Rose Pak at the Chinese New Year's Parade. Salvation Army décor was all well and good in the days of wine and roses. But a grown-up San Francisco leader requires wall art that doesn't resemble something haggled over at a yard sale. Enter the de Young: The museum runs a program loaning portions of its collection to government officials in a grandiose effort to class up the collective joint.

A number of these paintings now hang far from San Francisco indeed.

A William Bradford depiction of Yosemite, we are told, is mounted directly behind Sen. Dianne Feinstein's desk in her D.C. office.


Our calls to Rep. Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco bureau querying if two Northern California landscapes were hanging within view of the man answering the phone were, per office policy, shunted to her D.C. bureau. This led to the surreal situation of a man in Washington, D.C., being tasked by a man in San Francisco to tell SF Weekly what that man in San Francisco can see in his office.

Four de Young works — all European, interestingly — are housed in the governor's mansion.

The lieutenant governor's office in Sacramento, meanwhile, was described to us as "a glorified closet" — which somehow houses 23 de Young paintings; perhaps some hang from the ceiling.

Queries about 23 loaner paintings blindsided a Sacramento official answering the phone there. A woman in San Francisco was tasked by the woman in Sacramento to tell SF Weekly what that woman in Sacramento couldn't see in her office.

No one called back.

How corrupt is Los Angeles?
Patt Morrison | February 28th, 2012, 11:26am

Is Southern California one of the most corrupt regions in the country?  Yes, if you take the contents of a new study from the University of Illinois at face value.

[ ]

The study, spearheaded by professor Dick Simpson and his colleagues, ranked Southern California as the second-most corrupt city in the county, second only to Illinois. The yardstick for corruption was federal convictions for extortion, bribery, conflicts of interest and election crimes involving elected officials, government workers and private citizens.

"There's always been a long, long history of corruption and bending the law in the Southland,” said veteran journalist Bill Boyarsky. “This area is so vast there's so much going on that the corruption hasn't been shown-up yet

California Sen. Rod Wright convicted of perjury, voter fraud
By Jean MerlThis post has been updated, as indicated below.
January 28, 2014, 11:16 a.m.


A Los Angeles jury on Tuesday convicted state Sen. Roderick D. Wright on all eight counts in his perjury and voter fraud trial.

The Inglewood Democrat was indicted by a Los Angeles County grand jury in September 2010. He had pleaded not guilty and said he thought he had been following the law in 2007 when he took steps to run for the seat he has held since late 2008.

In a trial that began Jan. 8, prosecutors accused Wright of faking a move to a rental property he owned in Inglewood so he could run in what was then the 25th Senate District.

They accused him of lying on voter registration and candidacy documents and of casting ballots in five elections he was not entitled to vote in from the Inglewood address.

Prosecutors said Wright actually lived in a more spacious single-family home in upscale Baldwin Hills. He bought the house in 2000, but it was in another district.

Wright, 61, said he bought the Baldwin Hills home in part to use its top floor as an office and never intended it as his primary residence.  

He said he believed he was following the law when he registered to vote and did other things to make the Inglewood property his legal residence. He arranged to have a "dwelling place" in a house at the back of the apartment building with his common-law stepmother and longtime tenant, Wanda Sanders.  

He moved in some clothing and personal items, according to trial evidence and testimony. Wright said he thought he was on solid legal ground and never intended to deceive voters
Wright made no comment after the verdict was read, but his attorney said Wright would appeal

Harassment claim against legislator settled in secret, records show
December 16, 2011 |By Patrick McGreevy, Los Angeles Times

State Senate leaders privately approved a $120,000 settlement with a legislative aide who accused Sen. Roderick Wright of making inappropriate comments. The Times obtained the document through a public records request.

Reporting from Sacramento — The state Senate secretly paid $120,000 to settle a claim by a legislative aide that she was sexually harassed by Sen. Roderick Wright (D-Inglewood), according to her attorney and government documents released this week.

Senate leaders acting behind closed doors approved the payment to Fahizah Alim, who was a district coordinator for Wright, in an agreement that required "no publicity." The document, approved last year, said the deal was made "to avoid the costs, uncertainty, and operational burden of a further dispute.''
Asked why taxpayers, rather than individual lawmakers, fund the payouts, Trost said the complaints and their resolution are matters "between employer and employee," and the Senate is the employer.

The Senate routinely settles such claims privately, with confidentiality clauses that leave taxpayers in the dark.

In 1975, the Legislature broadly exempted itself from the California Public Records Act, determining that "records of complaints to or investigations conducted by . . . the Legislature" need not be disclosed. The exemption applies to the Assembly as well as the Senate.

One-Party Rule Leads to Corruption in California
by James V. Lacy  16 Nov 2013

Paul Krugman, the liberal Nobel Prize-winning columnist for the New York Times, thinks California is making an economic comeback.

He attributes this mostly to the Republican party’s steady decline in the state, which left Governor Jerry Brown “free to push an agenda of tax hikes and infrastructure spending that sounds remarkably like the kind of thing California used to do before the rise of the radical right.”  

But the results of Brown’s most recent tax increases are hardly relieving economic pressures on the nearly two million Californians that remain unemployed in the Democrat-dominated state, whose numbers are growing, not declining.

The truth is that the Democrats, who totally control policies in the state by virtue of "supermajorities" in both houses of the State Legislature, are making California increasingly poorer; the Census Bureau announced last week that California has the highest poverty rate in the nation for the second year in a row. Yet despite California's dreary economic conditions, some of California's Democratic lawmakers are making themselves or their campaign committees richer in a personal sort of "economic comeback," and, in some cases, they are doing so by breaking the law.

One recent investigation into payoffs in the State Capitol has been breathtaking. Powerful liberal Democratic State Senator Ron Calderon recently had his office in the state capitol building raided by the FBI’s Public Corruption Squad. According to the FBI’s search warrant, which was obtained and released by the Al Jazeera American Network, probable cause for the raid included allegations that the Senator had received hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for legislative favors, including: $60,000 in bribes from an undercover FBI agent; another $28,000 in bribes from a hospital executive; and tens of thousands of dollars more in bribes paid to the State Senator’s brother through a nonprofit organization.  

In other investigations, a Democratic Assemblyman from Watsonville was fined by the state’s campaign finance commission for illegally coordinating his successful election with an independent effort that spent tens of thousands of dollars. Another former Democratic State Senate leader faces “record fines” for misusing his campaign funds on concert tickets, fireworks, and expensive dinners.

The Calderon case also offers more than a penumbra of evidence that the current “one-party” political control in Sacramento is not a healthy thing for the state’s politics, let alone its policies. Liberals in the media like Paul Krugman might like to deride the “dysfunction and grid-lock” a competitive GOP presents to the ability of Democrats to achieve their liberal policies. However, fewer Republicans in the halls of power may also mean less oversight of those in charge, the potential for even more corruption, and not so surprisingly, reliance on curious, independent, and out-of-the-mainstream media outlets like Al Jazeera to help protect the public interest.

James V. Lacy’s first book, Taxifornia, is being published by Post Hill Press and will be in bookstores early next year.

The Pension Fund That Ate California

CalPERS’s corruption, insider dealing, and politicized investments have overwhelmed taxpayers with debt.

Winter 2013

After spending years dogged by unpaid debts, California labor leader Charles Valdes filed for bankruptcy in the 1990s—twice. At the same time, he held one of the most influential positions in the American financial system: chair of the investment committee for the California Public Employees’ Retirement System, or CalPERS, the nation’s largest pension fund for government workers.

Valdes left the board in 2010 and now faces scrutiny for accepting gifts from another former board member, Alfred Villalobos—who, the state alleges, spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to influence how the fund invested its assets. Questioned by investigators about his dealings with Villalobos, Valdes invoked the Fifth Amendment 126 times.


California taxpayers help fund CalPERS’s pensions and ultimately guarantee them, so they might wonder: How could a financially troubled former union leader occupy such a powerful position at the giant retirement system, which manages roughly $230 billion in assets?

The answer lies in CalPERS’s three-decade-long transformation from a prudently managed steward of workers’ pensions into a highly politicized advocate for special interests. Unlike most government pension funds, CalPERS has become an outright lobbyist for higher member benefits, including a huge pension increase that is now consuming California state and local budgets. CalPERS’s members, who elect representatives to the fund’s board of directors, ignored concerns over Valdes’s suitability because they liked how he fought for those plusher benefits.

CalPERS has also steered billions of dollars into politically connected firms. And it has ventured into “socially responsible” investment strategies, making bad bets that have lost hundreds of millions of dollars [ Think of "the Producers" - they don't count the failure on Brodway]  .

Such dubious practices have piled up a crushing amount of pension debt, which California residents—and their children—will somehow have to repay.
Yet another feature of CalPERS that has cost taxpayers is double-dealing by the board, ranging from awarding contracts to political donors to alleged outright corruption.

In 2010, Jerry Brown, California’s attorney general at the time, launched a lawsuit accusing Alfred Villalobos of trying to bribe current board members (including Charles Valdes) to win investment business for his clients, mostly large financial firms that wanted a piece of the huge CalPERS portfolio. Villalobos pulled in $47 million as a go-between, the suit charged. A month after the lawsuit was announced, Villalobos filed for personal bankruptcy, temporarily blocking the suit. In 2011, the Internal Revenue Service accused him of intentionally depleting his assets while in bankruptcy, including gambling some away in Nevada casinos. News reports revealed that Villalobos had previously filed for bankruptcy, a decade before serving on the CalPERS board.

The lawsuit also accused former CalPERS chief executive Fred Buenrostro of accepting gifts from Villalobos. Separately, a Securities and Exchange Commission lawsuit filed last year accused Buenrostro of forging a document to help Villalobos win a big payment from a client. An internal CalPERS investigation quoted Buenrostro’s wife as calling her husband a “puppet” of Villalobos. The report also pointed out that Buenrostro often intervened with the CalPERS staff on behalf of his acquaintances in the investment world—“friends of Fred,” as the staffers called them.

Buenrostro and Villalobos have denied any wrongdoing, and investigations continue. In December 2011, after more than a year’s delay, a judge finally ruled that the state’s case against Villalobos could proceed, his bankruptcy filing notwithstanding.

These blockbuster allegations of influence-peddling came after nearly a decade of warnings of apparent conflicts of interest within CalPERS, prompting Businessweek to observe “an unpleasant whiff of pork-barrel politics rising from the board.” One example involved Ron Burkle, a major political donor in California. Burkle was a significant giver to Angelides’ campaign for treasurer, and he employed another board member, former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, to do legal work for him. But Burkle’s closest ties were with Governor Gray Davis: he gave $600,000 to Davis’s gubernatorial campaign and appointed Davis’s wife to the board of directors of one of his companies. CalPERS invested some $760 million in Burkle’s private equity funds from 2000 through 2002

As former Schwarzenegger economic advisor David Crane, a California Democrat, has said of the fund’s managers and board: “They are desperate to keep truths hidden.”

Steven Malanga is the senior editor of City Journal and a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. His latest book is Shakedown: The Continuing Conspiracy Against the American Taxpayer.
Alfred Villalobos, center, was accused of giving gifts to officials to steer cash to favored managers.
California is the latest state to try to curb “pay-to-play” practices. New York State barred placement agents from soliciting the Common Retirement Fund after a series of highly publicized cases brought by Andrew M. Cuomo, then attorney general and now governor.
CalPERS corruption: the cabal and the culture

Fred Buenrostro

The incident is mentioned in a report issued last week by CalPERS, an 18-month special review by a national law firm commissioned in the fall of 2009 after a survey of private equity firms found Villalobos received more than $50 million in fees.

The review describes how former CalPERS board member Fred Buenrostro, described as a Villalobos “puppet” by an ex-wife and girlfriend, used his later position as CalPERS chief executive to try to steer CalPERS investments to Villalobos clients.

A 25-year board member, Charles Valdes, who declared personal bankruptcy twice while chairing the CalPERS investment committee, is said to have had a reputation for liking travel and gifts from money managers seeking CalPERS investments.

A 37-year board member, the late Robert Carlson, met with the other four at the Lake Tahoe home of Villalobos in 2004 to discuss a CalPERS contract with Medco, now under state and federal investigation for paying Villalobos $4 million.

The CalPERS auditorium is named in honor of Carlson, with his name emblazoned over the entrance. The review said Buenrostro was hired as CalPERS chief executive in 2002 with the support of Shimada, Valdes and Carlson.

One thing that didn’t change: CalPERS rejected another request from the Los Angeles Times for records, this time connected to investments in firms that use placement agents involved in kickback schemes in New York.

But the Times went to court and, after a lengthy legal battle, won a settlement this month that apparently requires CalPERS to hand over most of the records requested by the newspaper.

The Origins of Communism in California
April 6, 2012, 5:51 pm by AJ

Examining the long march to Communism in California shows that it took Progressives over a hundred years to achieve their totalitarian California dream.

In 1879, the NY Times reported on the new California Constitution which was instigated by… wait for it… the Labor Party. Wouldn’t you know, community organizers peddling their Communism way back then. In the article, “Communism in California,” notice that their oppressive, totalitarian dream was instituted through taxation and taking control of land and railways. Does this sound similar to what they’re doing at an accelerated pace today? It certainly parallels what Nancy Pelosi brought to the House floor in 1992, which she called “Agenda 21″ and said it is the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development program.

Most notable in the 1879 NY Times article is the author’s apparent realization of the danger of enacting a mild form of Socialism that would lead to a Communist California, while at the same time finding comfort in the fact that it’s happening in a “distant part of the country.” The author may have presumed it would prove disastrous before infecting other States and spreading throughout the US like a violent and deadly virus. Little did the author know that it would be emanating from our very own White House, with an iron fist, within 130 years.
COMMUNISM IN CALIFORNIA (Published May 9, 1879)
“… it is clear that the efforts of the conservative people of California have not been able to stem the tide which has lately set toward Communism in the Golden State. It must be said that the experiment of a mild form of Socialism is now about to be tried in one of the States of the Republic. Perhaps it is just as well that it should be tried in a distant part of the country, and in a State which always makes much of its own griefs, as well as of its own advantages. There never was a serious desire for a remodeling of the Constitution of California until the so-called Labor Party became an important factor in the politics of the State…”

A May Day rally in Los Angeles, co-sponsored by SEIU and various communist groups, as well as other unions, reflected yet another step in the normalization of self-identified communist and socialist ideologies in the Obama era. Not only did SEIU help to organize the rally in conjunction with communists, they marched side-by-side with communists, while union members carried communist flags, communists carried union signs and altogether there was no real way to tell the two apart.

The communists freely and proudly declare their affiliation. And SEIU has no problem marching arm-in-arm with them

SEIU devoted $28 million to Obama’s campaign, making SEIU “the organization that spent the most to help Barack Obama get elected president.”

Furthermore, who is Obama’s favorite White House guest and one of his closest confidants? The individual who has visited the Obama White House the most: SEIU President Andy Stern, who has visited 53 times. Obama is closely linked with SEIU. SEIU is closely linked with communists. You do the math.


Until recently, the average American has regarded fascists and Communists as equally noxious and equally malignant. As well they should have. But the drive these days by the left side of the spectrum is to make communism and socialism somewhat less remarkable and more palatable. For two years, they angrily denied the Tea Party accusation that Obama’s policies and supporters had a socialist bent.

But in recent months, as the accusation has started to gain traction, the new leftist tactic has become: “What’s so bad about socialism after all? You’re demonizing a very popular and respectable ideology!”

SEIU - Government Backed Retirement funds:
Retirement Security

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has more than 2 million public and private sector members in the United States and Canada.  Our members work primarily in public service delivery, health care, and property services.  These members participate in more than 50 instate, county, and municipal pension funds in 19 private ("Taft-Hartley") funds with more than $1 trillion in assets.


The Capital Stewardship Program was created by the 2000 SEIU Convention to facilitate a more active partnership between SEIU and the trustees, administrators, advisors and investment managers of our members' pension savings in the pursuit of benefit improvements and of prudent, responsible, and financially sound investment policies.

SEIU takes very seriously the fiduciary duties contained in the statutes and precedents governing pension fund administration. The Capital Stewardship Program seeks to make certain that our members' pension funds are managed in a manner consistent with their long-term economic interests. We consider this our primary goal, and one that is consistent with encouraging responsible investment and proxy voting policies, active ownership and responsible business behavior by companies our funds invest in.

Taft-Hartley Trust:
 • Is one way private sector unionized employees can obtain health & other benefits through a Taft-Hartley Multi-employer Health & Welfare Plan.
• Plan can be formed by a single employer, but this is unusual.
• Multi Employer fund is almost always set up under Section 302(c)(5) of the Taft-Hartley Act.
Taft-Hartley Plans:
 All Taft-Hartley Plans Share 5 Basic Characteristics:
 • 1 or > employers contribute to the plan
• The Plan is collectively bargained with each participating employer
The Plan & its assets are managed by a joint Board of Trustees equally represented by labor & management
Assets are placed in a Trust Fund
• Employees can change employers without losing health / pension coverage, provided the new job is with an employer who participates in the same Fund.
Top Ten Union Corruption Stories of the Year
Submitted by Carl Horowitz on Mon, 01/13/2014 - 21:12

There was no shortage of corruption last year of the more traditional sort.  Among noteworthy ripoff cases, Tyrone Freeman, during the last decade a rising star of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and a player in Los Angeles County politics, was convicted by a jury on more than a dozen criminal counts. He eventually received a 33-month prison sentence.
6) Southern California SEIU boss convicted and sentenced. Tyrone Freeman, former head of the 180,000-member Service Employees International Union Local 6434 in Los Angeles, and a related organization, until late 2008 had been a major force in area labor and political activism. But an expose that year by the Los Angeles Times revealed extensive self-dealing and fraud by Freeman, especially on behalf of family members. Months later, then-SEIU International President Andrew Stern, upon reviewing the evidence, banned him for life from union activity. A long hiatus followed, but in July 2012 a federal grand jury indicted Freeman on 15 counts. In January 2013 a trial jury convicted him on 14 charges. This past October, Freeman received a 33-month sentence and was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $150,000, though his actual take, according to the SEIU, had exceeded $1 million.
1) Unions back amnesty/immigration surge legislation; ignore dissenters. No legislation has the capacity to shape America's long-term future, and for the worse, than the "Gang of Eight" Senate immigration bill (S. 744), introduced in April and passed by the Senate by a 68-32 margin in June. Under the guise of fixing a "broken" system, this amnesty/surge surge proposal would double and possibly triple existing levels of immigration, creating almost intolerable strains on law enforcement and public benefits availability - a self-fulfilling prophecy, if ever there was one. The AFL-CIO played a central role, along with business and ethnic interest groups, in developing the bill. So eager have labor bosses been to secure passage that they have ignored credible objections by unions whose members are on the front lines of border protection and customs enforcement.
SEIU Exposed–is it the most corrupt organization in America?
by Stephen Frank on 10/28/2011

When bribe payers are not allowed to see the books of an out of control radical organization, you know something is wrong.  Remember the money this union collects are bribes–if you do not pay them bribes you are not allowed to work–this scam is protected by government–Democrats who get part of the bribe money to win public office–sounds like a conspiracy to me–and totally corrupt.

“The SEIU’s Persuasion of Power appears to be wearing thin even within its own membership. Over the last several months, SEIU members have been asking questions about SEIU policies with respect to use of membership dues for politics, excessive executive compensation, member intimidation, misleading propaganda and election irregularities.

A recent article, NLRB Quickie Election Fact Check, exposes an SEIU training document (in place while Member Becker was that union’s Associate General Counsel) that encourages organizers to “steal, steal, steal.”

Evidently SEIU members in California feel this philosophy is being applied to its own membership. Mariam Noujaim a.k.a. “Mariam the Mighty” and Erica Soules are leading a group of  disgruntled SEIU members who are demanding the SEIU open its financial records so members can see how dues money is being spent through (see State Worker Takes on Union to Save California). In fact, Erica took the fight national with an appearance on Fox Business News where she exposed the SEIU’s misuse of membership dues for political purposes (see America’s Nightly Scoreboard).”

This is corruption–the SEIU needs to be closed down, like law enforcement would close any gang.  What do you think?

Cal State Pay-to-play trip to Cuba:

As of Sept. 12, seven of the eight legislative members on the spring-break trip to Cuba have been identified.

Attendees include: Achadjian, Assembly Majority Leader Toni Atkins, D-San Diego; Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego; Assemblywoman Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles; Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley; state Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello; and state Sen. Cathleen Galgiani, D-Livingston.

In 2010, Anderson and Platinum Advisors “paid $500,000 to settle claims by New York Atty. Gen. Andrew Cuomo stemming from a yearlong investigation into so-called pay-to-play practices in city and state pension fund investment partnerships,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

On behalf of Platinum Advisors and in partnership with Californians Building Bridges, we are excited to invite you to join us on an upcoming trip to Havana, Cuba during December 2-7, 2013,” Anderson wrote on Platinum Advisors letterhead. “In 2010, I founded an exciting nonprofit organization, Californians Building Bridges (CBB), which gained independent approval from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control in 2011 to travel to Cuba and coordinate educational exchanges.”

Nevertheless, despite overwhelming evidence that the nonprofit is a subsidiary of the lobbying firm, Californians Building Bridges denies that lobbying will occur on the trip.

Despite its tax-exempt status, Californians Building Bridges has little to show in the way of charitable activities. Californians Building Bridges, according to its most recent tax return, provided no financial support to domestic or international charities.

In fact, Californians Building Bridges, which spent $652,200 last year, has never spent a penny in support of grants or contributions to other charities, according to the two tax returns that are publicly available. Yet the organization’s mission, according to its tax return, listed as a priority making “one-time financial grants and donations of supplies and materials to charitable organizations that lack their own resources or do not qualify for assistance through existing agencies and organizations in their region.”

Famously anti-gun in public, State Sen. Leland Yee has fought loudly for stricter gun laws as a state senator and assemblyman.

After the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Conn., Yee said:  ”Assault weapons are killing little kids, babies.”

Yet Yee’s image as an anti-gun crusader was punctured Wednesday as page after page of a federal criminal complaint accused the State Senator of bribery, corruption and, perhaps most surprisingly, allegedly acting as an intermediary in a multi-million dollar conspiracy to traffic assault rifles and other weapons out of the Philippines.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California state senator who authored gun control legislation asked for campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday.

The allegations against Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI criminal complaint that names 25 other defendants, including Raymond Chow, a onetime gang leader with ties to San Francisco's Chinatown known as "Shrimp Boy," and Keith Jackson, Yee's campaign aide. The affidavit accuses Yee of conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms.

Yee is also accused of accepting tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions and cash payments to provide introductions, help a client get a contract and influence legislation. He or members of his campaign staff accepted at least $42,800 in cash or campaign contributions from undercover FBI agents in exchange for carrying out the agents' specific requests, the court documents allege.

Investigators said Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired missiles, and explained the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the U.S., according to an affidavit by FBI agent Emmanuel V. Pascua
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, flanked by 14 other Democratic senators at a news conference in his Capitol office, called on Yee to resign from the Senate or face suspension.
Chow is accused of money laundering, conspiracy to receive and transport stolen property, and conspiracy to traffic contraband cigarettes.

He was denied bail because he was deemed a flight risk and a danger to the public. The Department of Homeland Security has been trying to deport Chow, who is not a U.S. citizen, since he was released from prison in 2005.

Yee is the third Democratic state senator in California to face criminal charges this year. Sen. Rod Wright was convicted of perjury and voter fraud for lying about his legal residence in Los Angeles County, and Sen. Ron Calderon has been indicted on federal corruption charges. Wright and Calderon are taking a voluntary leave of absence, with pay, although Republicans have called for them to be suspended or expelled.
A man was charged last year for threatening Yee over legislation that he proposed to limit rapid reloading of assault weapons. Lee also authored legislation that that would have required the state to study safe storage of firearms.

Chow acknowledged in an unpublished autobiography that he ran prostitution rings in the 1980s, smuggled drugs and extorted thousands from business owners as a Chinatown gang member, KGO-TV reported two years ago.

In 1992, he was among more than two dozen people indicted on racketeering charges for their alleged involvement in crimes ranging from teenage prostitution to an international drug trade mostly involving heroin.

Chow was later convicted of gun charges and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. He spent 11 years in prison and was released in 2003 after he cut a deal with the government to testify against another high-ranking associate.

Chow recently has been held up as an example of successful rehabilitation. The Sacramento Bee reported he was praised by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., in 2012 as a former offender who had become a community asset and Chow was also praised by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee for his "willingness to give back to the community."

Chinese Gangster "Shrimp Boy" Chow Comes Clean on Hsu


Norman Hsu convicted of breaking campaign finance laws
The former fundraiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton and other Democrats is found guilty of using clients' names as fake donors to Democrats' campaigns to avoid federal rules limiting contributions.

Norman Hsu -- a fundraiser for top Democrats, including Hillary Rodham Clinton -- was convicted this morning in New York of violating federal campaign finance laws.

The federal jury began deliberating late Monday afternoon and returned a guilty verdict on all counts after an hour of deliberation this morning, it was announced. Sentencing for the former financier and fugitive, who is already serving time in connection with California fraud charges, was set for Aug. 19.

The federal trial began May 12, just days after Hsu pleaded guilty to 10 counts of wire and mail fraud, admitting he had cheated investors of at least $20 million in a Ponzi scheme.

The current campaign violation charges accuse Hsu of using clients' names as fake donors to Democrats' campaigns to avoid federal rules that limit contributions to candidates.

At the trial, prosecutors for the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York played tapes of then-Sen. Clinton praising Hsu's fundraising efforts.

Hsu was a key fundraiser for Clinton, now secretary of State, throughout last year's presidential primary cycle. It was part of his rise to prominence within Democrat circles over about four years. During that time he hosted a string of lavish events for Democrats and typically identified himself as an apparel executive.

Starting in 2003, Hsu raised more than $1.6 million for Clinton and other Democrats. Around the same time, he started the Ponzi scheme and used those clients' names to circumvent campaign laws, according to prosecutors.

Hsu carried out his fundraising while trying to hide a criminal past. In 1991, California authorities accused him of running a scheme to cheat investors out of $1 million. He had claimed to have contracts to buy and sell latex gloves, but California prosecutors alleged there were neither contracts nor gloves.

Hsu agreed in 1992 to plead no contest to a reduced charge, but he fled before sentencing.

Last August, Hsu turned himself in, posting cash bail of $2 million. Then he fled again. He was recaptured after collapsing aboard a train in Colorado.

After Hsu's past was detailed in a Los Angeles Times article, candidates gave away his direct donations and the Clinton campaign refunded more than $800,000 raised by him.

In describing the Ponzi scheme, the Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that Hsu and his company, Next Components Ltd., raised tens of millions of dollars from investors by promising returns of 14% to 24% every 70 to 130 days. The money was supposed to be used for short-term loans to businesses.

Hsu is serving a three-year sentence on the 1991 fraud charges.

California senate suspends three lawmakers in criminal probes
By Laila Kearney

Fri Mar 28, 2014 5:50pm EDT

(Reuters) - The California state Senate suspended three Democratic lawmakers on Friday who have been the subject of criminal probes, including Leland Yee, who was arrested this week in an FBI sweep on corruption and gun trafficking charges.

The Senate voted 28-1 to suspend the three, all of whom have been charged with or convicted of criminal wrongdoing in separate cases, in a move that further erodes what had once been a Democratic two-thirds super-majority in the Senate.


The suspensions with pay, the first in state history from the senate, deal a major blow to Democrats in an election year as they seek to use large majorities in both houses of the state legislature and all statewide offices to push through key projects. A spokesman for Steinberg said the suspensions would take effect immediately.

The senate also suspended fellow senators Ron Calderon, who was indicted last month on corruption charges, and Rod Wright, who has been found guilty of voter fraud. Both had already been on paid leaves of absence.

Calderon is charged in a federal grand jury indictment with taking some $100,000 in cash bribes, along with plane trips, golf outings and jobs for his children, in exchange for influencing legislation.

Friday's suspension measure was opposed by Republican Senator Joel Anderson, who favored expelling the senators rather than suspending them with pay. "What we're doing is incentivizing bad behavior with this resolution," Anderson said.

[ Oh they lost the Super majority with the paid leave of Calderon ... Beginning in March ...

But they have mostly corrupt RINOS that give their vote for favors ...
California Democrats lose power of supermajority
Melody Gutierrez
Updated 6:27 am, Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Sacramento --

- In the days last year after California Democrats secured a supermajority - a voting bloc that lets their party pass taxes or bonds - many pondered how that new political muscle would be used.

Now it's a question of what Democrats will do without it.

Democrats lost their supermajority in the state Senate on Sunday after a Los Angeles County Democrat took a paid leave to fight legal troubles, the second to do so.
Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello (Los Angeles County), announced Sunday he will take a paid leave of absence to fight federal political corruption charges stemming from an FBI investigation into bribery. Calderon pleaded not guilty and is out on bail.

Wright's paid leave

Calderon's departure came days after state Sen. Roderick Wright, D-Inglewood (Los Angeles County), announced he will take a paid leave while waiting for a trial judge to validate a felony conviction for lying about where he lived to run for office.

A jury found Wright guilty of eight felony counts of voter fraud and perjury in January, but he is asking the judge to toss out the convictions because of ambiguity about the definition of residency.

Calderon and Wright, both moderate Democrats who did not always vote with their party, will continue to receive their $95,000 salary.

Some Republican state senators are calling for Wright and Calderon to be permanently expelled   from the upper house, arguing that a suspension allows for political manipulation.

"There's nothing prohibiting them from returning at will and voting," said Sen. Joel Anderson, R-Alpine (San Diego County). "And that's the problem."

Corruption Charges Against California Democrats Are Making Jerry Brown's Job a Whole Lot Harder
 By Karen Weise     March 27, 2014

California Democrats should have had a good 2014: The economy’s on the mend and the state’s budget woes have become far less acute. Yet the first three months of the year have not been kind to the state’s Democrats. State Senator Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on corruption charges, which allege (PDF) that Yee was involved in a conspiracy to traffic weapons and wire fraud. That followed last month’s indictment of another state senator, Ron Calderon, for allegedly accepting $100,000 in bribes. And in January, State Senator Rod Wright was found guilty of eight felony charges related to election and voting fraud. Assuming Yee goes on leave (as Calderon and Wright have done) instead of stepping down, Democrats will have just 25 voting members in the Senate—two seats short of the 27 they need for a supermajority.

In California, a supermajority is required to raise taxes or amend the constitution.

If the accused senators resign, Governor Jerry Brown could call special elections to fill their seats—and given the composition of their districts, Democrats would surely be elected. But they haven’t stepped aside. Calderon, who pleaded not guilty and is fighting his charges, and Wright, who is appealing his conviction, are both on paid leave. Yee hasn’t publicly responded to the charges against him.

it's like everyday there's something .... now prefilled voter registrations for the Demoncat party?!!

Covered California Sends Out Voter Registration Card Pre-Marked For Democratic Party
(ABC 10 News)

LA MESA, Calif. - A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state's Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.

The couple – who did not want their identity revealed – received the letter and voter registration card from their health insurance provider Covered California, the state-run agency that implements President Obama's Affordable Care Act.


Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups. But that does not explain the pre-filled out voter registration card.

Facing a deadline of early next week for a voting rights lawsuit in federal court, California's health insurance exchange appears to have agreed to send out almost 4 million voter registration forms to those who applied for health insurance since October 1.

The key word, though, is 'appears.'
Covered California must boost voter registration efforts, say critics
9:31 PM, Dec 3, 2013

California may be leading the nation in health insurance enrollment, but critics say it's lagging in complying with a federal law that encourages voter registration -- a problem that could lead to a lawsuit before the end of December.

"It's an embarrassment, frankly," says Lori Schellenberger, director of the California Voting Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

At issue is whether Covered California, the state agency created to implement the Affordable Care Act, must do more to help register voters under existing law.  The ACLU and other organizations believe the agency isn't doing enough, and have threatened possible legal action to force action.

"They are required by state and federal law to allow every single applicant the right to register to vote," says Schellenberger.

The debate largely focuses around the 1993 National Voter Registration Act, better known as the 'Motor Voter Law,' which focused on including voter registration as part of the services available at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

But the law goes further than just the DMV, requiring voter registration services be made available by any agency that provides public assistance.

NEW: CA Senate scrubs websites of 3 Democrats in scandals
April 7, 2014
By John Hrabe 

The California State Senate has scrubbed its website and deleted the online archives of three Democratic state Senators that face criminal charges ranging from weapons trafficking to public corruption.

As of April 5 at 7:00 PM, the websites of Democratic Sens. Leland Yee of San Francisco, Ron Calderon of Montebello, and Rod Wright of Inglewood, all of whom have been placed on paid leave, no longer include any mention of the disgraced lawmakers. The website removal is a devastating blow to journalists and members of the public who will no longer be able to investigate past votes, bills and legislative connections of the disgraced lawmakers.

Attempt to cover up for other State Senators?

Incoming Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, has admitted that he was served with a subpoena in the Ron Calderon corruption case.

De Leon, who is mentioned 49 times in the FBI’s 124-page complaint against Calderon, is believed to have arranged a $25,000 payment from the Latino Caucus to a nonprofit controlled by Ron Calderon’s brother, Tom. It remains unclear why the State Senate deleted the web archives of the disgraced Senators. However, several other California lawmakers have been cited in the ongoing public corruption cases involving Yee and Calderon. “As set forth below, Senator de Leon caused $25,000 to be contributed to Californians for Diversity, the California corporation controlled by Thomas Calderon in exchange for Ronald Calderon not to challenge Senator Lara to become the Chairman of the Latino Caucus,” the FBI affidavit

Thwart public, press from investigating

In addition to pictures and video clips, the websites also contained substantial information detailing the Senators’ votes and known legislative ties, which could implicate other members of the Senate. In contrast to his public image as a gun control advocate, Yee had never successfully passed a gun control bill during his 11 year career in the state legislature, as reported by Other outlets, including the San Francisco Chronicle, have published Yee’s most hypocritical press releases. Paradoxically, Yee, who has been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists for his work in open government, had assembled one of the Legislature’s most comprehensive and detailed web archives.

California lawmakers, bruised by scandal, turn to ethics training
By Sharon Bernstein

SACRAMENTO, California Wed Apr 23, 2014

California lawmakers, their reputation tarnished by fraud and corruption scandals, on Wednesday took a break from normal business to attend ethics training, the latest step by the state Senate to repair its image as elections loom.

The all-day, mandatory sessions, held behind closed doors away from the Capitol in Sacramento, were scheduled after three Democratic senators faced criminal charges in a spate of embarrassments for their party, which dominates the state's Legislature.

Judge: Leland Yee Evidence Will Be Kept Secret
by William Bigelow  22 May 2014, 5:29 AM PDT

U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer ruled on Monday that the government’s evidence in the case against state Sen. Leland Yee must be kept secret until further notice, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Breyer is concerned that if the information is made public, undercover agents could be compromised and other individuals who were not a part of any criminal activity could be named.

Breyer wrote, "Such disclosure risks not only bodily harm to undercover agents, but reputational harm to individuals who would be collateral damage."

Breyer’s decision was protested by a lawyer for Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, a reputed gangland figure. J. Tony Serra, Chow’s lawyer, asserted that he should have the option of revealing evidence so he could fight the government’s charges.

Because of Breyer’s decision, defense lawyers cannot make public the evidence they receive from prosecutors, although future evidence contained in publicly filed court documents may not be affected.

Serra was alone in his protest; the other lawyers eschewed joining him, according to the Mercury News, but some media echoed his complaint.

The charges against Chow include gun trafficking, conspiracy, and money laundering. The indictment against him includes Yee, who is accused of taking bribes for political favors.

In July, federal prosecutors are expected to update the indictment against Yee and the other defendants with new racketeering charges.

Viet refugee now tycoon says California officials no better than Communists
May 15, 2014     

He fled his native Vietnam with virtually nothing and has built a hot sauce empire — but says dealing with California bureaucrats and excessive regulations isn’t that different from his Communist homeland

“David Tran is the founder and CEO of Huy Fong Foods, the maker of the famously tasty Sriracha hot sauce,” writes Zenon Evans for “Grappling for months with regulators and politicians in southern California about the spicy scents that his factory emits, Tran recently compared meddlesome government to that of a Communist country.”

Huy Fong Foods is a hot sauce company based in Rosemead, California that was founded in 1980 on Spring Street in Los Angeles‘s Chinatown. It has grown to become one of the leaders in the Asian hot sauce market, especially Sriracha sauce.

The company is named for a decrepit Panamanian freighter, the “Huey Fong,” that carried Tran and 3,317 other refugees out of Vietnam in December 1978.


But now he’s wondering if settling in California was a mistake, writes Evans. “It might sound hyperbolic, but he does know a thing or two about living under the nightmarish bureaucracy of a red utopia.”


It’s not the first time he’s spoken out about the issue. He previously accused the local government of wanting to shut him down. Last month the city council deemed the $80 million business a “public nuisance” for giving off a peppery odor. In 2013, the city sued Tran (despite lobbying to get him to move Huy Fong Foods there in the first place) and California’s health regulators shut down the factory for 30 days.

Tran has received offers from public officials throughout the country that want to court Huy Fong Foods.

Texas, which is far more business-friendly than California, has made the biggest push.

Because his peppers are grown locally, Tran is reluctant. He did indicate that he may open another factory elsewhere to meet the growing demand for his popular hot sauce.

 The on going question?
 Was the Vietnam war necessary. Ho Chi Minh was a revolutionary, a rebel, who sought to rid French rule from his nation. He didn't begin in favor of communism. He did seek American assistance & thought highly of our principles.
 One of his most famous speeches at the beggining of the revolution while under French domination.
A frail-looking wisp of a man advanced to the microphone. “All men are created equal,” he declared, as all of Hanoi listened. “They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” He paused and then elaborated. “This immortal statement,” he explained, “was made in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America in 1776. In a broader sense, this means: all the peoples on earth are equal from birth, all the peoples have a right to live, to be happy and free.”

“But gradually he and his fellow North Vietnamese were viewed as agents of international communism, not admirable rebels against colonialism. Mr. Logevall bemoans the fact that Ho’s admiration for American political ideals and French culture did not lead to a life-sparing compromise.”

Ho was clearly admiring of the Americans in 1945, and he actively sought their help. As a sweetener, he had allowed some of the men under General Giap to rescue downed American pilots.
Cuba, had the USA aided the revolution to rid Cuba of Batista and his crew he wouldn't have gone communist.
  Problem, far to many American Corps and organized crime $$$$$$$$$$$ were involved.
Cuban dictator Batista falls from power - History Channel
The United States government had supported the American-friendly Batista regime
Could these incidents have been avoided, you decide.

Puzzling isn't it..                                P.S.   Sorry to rant.
P.S.S..Control is control no matter what name ya give it. .. I had to post after reading T's post about Vietnamese refugee. 
 Our political system was based on we the people, were warned time and time again about tyrants, sh**tbags getting into Gov positions, our forefathers demanded we pay attention and beware.
                We are Americans, but  I have wonder about the past presidents and their parasitic suklings.

Ho Chi Minh was a revolutionary, a rebel, who sought to rid French rule from his nation. He didn't begin in favor of communism

That's  not so , Uncle Ho was trained in the Soviet Union and during WWII he started out working with the Communist Chinese.

He worked both sides of espionage in Vietnam, French and Japanese, and he sold out all the French agents there to the Japanese (they died), So, the OSS recruited him to replace the French in Indochina,  and he in turn, recruited other communist agents to create his network. By the end of the war only Uncle Ho's communist agents were in Vietnam ...

This is documented in the book "OSS in China" by Maochun Yu ,,, somewhere I have a photo of Ho with the OSS...
The OSS and Ho Chi Minh
Unexpected Allies in the War against Japan
Dixee R. Bartholomew-Feis

New in Paperback: March 2009

The men of General William Donovan’s newly-formed Office of Strategic Services closely collaborated with communist groups in both Europe and Asia against the Axis enemies. In Vietnam, this meant that OSS officers worked with Ho Chi Minh and the Viet Minh, whose ultimate aim was to rid the region of all imperialist powers, not just the Japanese. Ho, for his part, did whatever he could to encourage the OSS’s negative view of the French, who were desperate to regain their colony. Revealing details not previously known about their covert operations, Bartholomew-Feis chronicles the exploits of these allies as they developed their network of informants, sabotaged the Japanese occupation’s infrastructure, conducted guerrilla operations, and searched for downed American fliers and Allied POWs.

In the  photo above, American OSS (Predecessor to the CIA) “Deer Team” members pose with (then) Viet Minh leaders Ho Chi Minh and Vo Nguyen Giap during a military training at Tan Trao, in the mountains north of Hanoi in August, 1945. Deer Team members standing, l to r, are Rene Defourneaux, (Ho Chi Minh), Allison Thomas, (Vo Nguyen Giap), Henry Prunier and Paul Hoagland, far right. Kneeling, left, are Lawrence Vogt and Aaron Squires. (Rene Defourneaux).
In 1923, Nguyễn (Ho) left Paris for Moscow, where he was employed by the Comintern, studied at the Communist University of the Toilers of the East,[16][17] and participated in the Fifth Comintern Congress in June 1924, before arriving in Canton (present-day Guangzhou), China, in November 1924.

In 1925–26 he organized "Youth Education Classes" and occasionally gave socialist lectures to Vietnamese revolutionary young people living in Canton at the Whampoa Military Academy. These young people would become the seeds of a new revolutionary, pro-communist movement in Vietnam several years later. According to Duiker, he lived with and married a Chinese woman, Tăng Tuyết Minh (Zeng Xueming), on 18 October 1926.[18] When his comrades objected to the match, he told them, “I will get married despite your disapproval because I need a woman to teach me the language and keep house.”[18] She was 21 and he was 36.[18] They married in the same place where Zhou Enlai had married earlier, and then lived in the residence of a Comintern agent, Mikhail Borodin.[18]
Chiang Kai-shek's 1927 anti-communist coup triggered a new era of exile for Nguyễn. He left Canton again in April 1927 and returned to Moscow, spending some of the summer of 1927 recuperating from tuberculosis in the Crimea, before returning to Paris once more in November.
... In early 1930, in Hong Kong, Nguyễn Ái Quốc chaired a meeting with representatives from two Vietnamese communist parties in order to merge them into a unified organization, Communist Party of Vietnam.

In June 1931, he was arrested in Hong Kong. To reduce French pressure for extradition, it was (falsely) announced in 1932 that Nguyễn Ái Quốc had died.[21] The British quietly released him in January 1933. ... He moved to the Soviet Union, where he spent several years recovering from tuberculosis. ...

In 1938, he was allowed to return to China and served as an advisor to the Chinese Communist armed forces, which later forced China's government into exile on Taiwan.[9]

Deer Team Meets a "Mr. Hoo"

Two months before Thomas' farewell dinner with Ho and Giap, he and six others from Special Operations Team Number 13, code-named "Deer," had parachuted into a jungle camp called Tan Trao, near Hanoi, with directions to proceed to the headquarters of Ho Chi Minh, whom they naively knew only as a "Mr. Hoo." Their mission, as they understood it, was to set up a guerrilla team of 50 to 100 men to attack and interdict the railroad from Hanoi to Lang Son to prevent the Japanese from going into China. They were also to find Japanese targets such as military bases and depots, and send back to OSS agents in China whatever intelligence they could. And they were to provide weather reports for air drops and U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF) operations on an as-needed basis.

Thomas had parachuted in on July 16, 1945, part of a three-man advance team that also included radio operator 1st Sgt. William Zielski and Pfc Henry Prunier, their interpreter. Not knowing who or what to expect when they reached the drop zone, Thomas and his team soon found themselves surrounded by 200 guerrilla fighters who greeted them warmly and showed them to their huts. They then met with Ho Chi Minh, who called himself "C.M. Hoo," at his headquarters to coordinate operations with him. Thomas had no idea that Ho was a Communist, spoke Russian or had visited the Soviet Union. Nonetheless, Ho openly discussed politics with Thomas, stressing not only the abuses by the French, but also his desire to work with the French toward a solution.


Ho was not around much, but when Defourneaux saw him, his first impression was of a sick old man clearly suffering from some disease. In one of the ironies of history, the Vietnam War, at least with the Communists under Ho Chi Minh, might never have happened if the Americans hadn't arrived when they did.

"Ho was so ill he could not move from the corner of a smoky hut," Defourneaux said. Ho didn't seem to have much time to live; Defourneaux heard it would not be weeks but days. "Our medic thought it might have been dysentery, dengue fever, hepatitis," he recalled. "While being treated by Pfc Hoagland, Ho directed his people into the jungle to search for herbs. Ho shortly recovered, attributing it to his knowledge of the jungle."

The International intended to fight "by all available means, including armed force, for the overthrow of the international bourgeoisie and for the creation of an international Soviet republic as a transition stage to the complete abolition of the State
The Comintern had seven World Congresses between 1919 and 1935.

Gov. Jerry Brown to Mexican Illegals: 'You're All Welcome in California'
by Tony Lee  26 Aug 2014, 9:07 AM PDT

On Monday evening, California Governor Jerry Brown said all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California.

According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said America is "the other Mexico," Brown "spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California." He "nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn't matter if they had permission to be in the United States."

"You're all welcome in California," Brown reportedly said.

Brown has made California a sanctuary state by signing the Trust Act, giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. He has also expanded financial aid to illegal immigrants by signing the California DREAM Act. Peña Nieto reportedly "thanked state officials for embracing foreigners citing measures that extend state benefits to immigrants."

Even during the border crisis, Brown reportedly vowed "to find ways to shorten long waits at the Tijuana-San Diego international border crossing," saying, "If we can put a man on the moon, we can put a man from Mexico to California in 20 minutes."

In 2012, 28% of Californians were born outside the United States, according to The New York Times. Hispanic voters reportedly "made up 19.2% of California voters" in 2010. And according to Pew Research, Latinos make up nearly 40% of the state's population and have made California "only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality."

Even though the University of California has admitted a record number of Hispanics, the Latino Caucus has vowed to make affirmative action and bilingual education top legislative priorities.

Republican snubs Mexican prez for holding U.S. Marine

Skips governor's honorary luncheon to join protest outside mansion
Published: 08/19/2014 at 10:30 AM

Instead of accepting an invitation from California Gov. Jerry Brown to attend a luncheon honoring the president of Mexico at the governor’s mansion, a Republican state assemblyman will lead a protest at the official residence during the event in support of a U.S. Marine held captive south of the border.

Brown, a Democrat, will hold the luncheon honoring Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Aug. 26.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly was invited to the event, but he delivered a scathing response to Brown on Monday regarding the continued imprisonment of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, which he exclusively shared with WND.

State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Calif.

Tahmooressi, who served two combat tours of duty in Afghanistan, has been in jail since March after driving near the Mexican border and getting caught in a traffic lane that prevented him from making a U-turn back to the U.S.

He was jailed in Mexico because he was carrying his personal weapons, which although legal in the U.S., are illegal in Mexico.

California Plastic Bag Ban Would Be First Of Its Kind In The Nation
 Posted:  08/30/2014 4:00 am EDT

By Aaron Mendelson

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug 30 (Reuters) - The California state legislature enacted a ban on plastic grocery bags on Friday near the end of its two-year session, a measure that if signed into law would become the first of its kind in America.

A number of cities and counties in California and other U.S. states, including Hawaii's Maui County, have made it illegal for grocery stores to pack purchases in plastic. But at the state level, opposition from plastic bag makers has usually prevailed.

The California Senate voted 22-15 for the bill, which must be signed into law by Sept. 30 by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, who has not signaled a position on the measure.

"Single-use plastic bags not only litter our beaches, but also our mountains, our deserts, and our rivers, streams and lakes," said state Senator Alex Padilla, who sponsored the bill.

Padilla backed a similar measure last year but it failed by three votes. The fate of this bill was uncertain until the waning hours of the session after falling three votes short in the state's Assembly on Monday.

But after picking up the support of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, the bill passed a second vote in the Assembly.

The measure would ban grocery stores from handing out single-use grocery bags with customers' purchases, and provide money to local plastic bag companies to retool to make heavier, multiple-use bags that customers could buy

Now he says he'll sign the plastic bag bill ...
Gov. Brown says he will sign bill that would ban plastic grocery bags
September 4, 2014, 9:07 PM|Reporting from Sacramento

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, during Thursday night’s gubernatorial debate with Republican rival Neel Kashkari, said he plans to sign a law that would make California the first state to impose a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags..

“I probably will sign it, yes,” Brown said during the televised debate. “ In fact, I’ll tell you why I’m going to sign it …. There are about 50 cities with their own plastic bag ban, and that’s causing a lot of confusion.’’

Kashkari responded that “no chance would I sign” the plastic bag ban if he were governor.

Kashkari, a former assistant U.S. Treasury secretary who oversaw the federal bank bailout, then criticized other bills passed by the Legislature this year, including measures limiting high school football practices and legislation permitting dogs at outdoor restaurants.

“What they’re not working on is rebuilding the middle class,” Kashkari said. 

California lawmakers last week approved legislation banning plastic bags, such as those available to customers in supermarkets, convenience stores and pharmacies. Supporters argued the ban would reduce litter on beaches and streets as well as garbage being dumped at landfills.

The hotly contested bill, strongly supported by environmentalists, would allow stores to charge customers 10 cents for paper or reusable plastic bags as an alternative. Similar bans are already in place in more than 100 California cities and counties, including Los Angeles County and San Francisco. Those regulations would remain intact.
The bill was opposed by bag makers, who warned of job losses, and Republican legislators, who viewed the measure as an unnecessary government intrusion.

GOP Challenger Hammers Brown in California Governor's Debate

'He's raising your gas prices to fund his vanity project, the high-speed train. What I call the crazy train.'
9.5.2014 |
 Larry O'Connor

In the first debate between Governor Jerry Brown and GOP challenger Neil Kashkari, Californians saw exactly why the 76-year-old Brown refuses to submit to a second debate.  Kashkari, a business man and political neophyte, relentlessly hammered his career politician opponent on jobs and education leaving Brown appearing old, slow and unresponsive.
Kaskari pointed out the dismal four-year record of the Governor regarding jobs, education and poverty and mocked Brown for pitiful legislation like plastic bag bans and a recent law allowing restaurant patrons to bring their dogs to establishments. "The time for incrementalism has long since passed, governor," Kashkari said. "We actually need bold reforms to rebuild the middle class. Plastic bags isn't going to do it."

He also pledged to end the high-priced, unpopular high-speed rail project that Brown has championed.  "He's raising your gas prices to fund his vanity project, the high-speed train. What I call the crazy train."

When asked after the debate if he will agree to participate in another exchange of issues and ideas with his challenger before election day, Brown said, "I think we've exposed the differences."

Nearly 1 in 10 California workers are in country illegally, study finds
 By Kate Linthicum  contact the reporter
September 3, 2014, 12:45 PM

A report released Wednesday by researchers at USC found that immigrants who are in California illegally make up nearly 10% of the state's workforce and contribute $130 billion annually to its gross domestic product..

lRelated Bullet train foes ask California Supreme Court to overturn decision.

The study, which was conducted in conjunction with the California Immigrant Policy Center, was based on census data and other statistics, including data from the Department of Labor and the Department of Homeland Security. It looked at a variety of ways the estimated 2.6 million immigrants living in California without permission participate in state life.

1 in 6 California construction workers labors in shadows, study finds
August 31, 2014, 9:00 AM

Informal workers [Illegal Aliens] are a growing part of California’s economy — a shift keenly felt in the construction industry, where 1 in 6 workers is either off the books or misreported, new research has found..

Construction businesses in the state employ roughly 895,000 workers, according to a report by downtown Los Angeles research group Economic Roundtable that was released Sunday. In 2011, 143,900 of those workers labored unofficially.

Some 39,800 workers were misclassified by employers as independent contractors, despite not owning their own tools or setting their own schedules. An additional 104,100 workers weren’t recorded at all.


California lost out on $473 million in 2011 because of informal construction work, according to the study. The state was stiffed on $264 million in workers’ compensation payments, $146 million in disability dues and $64 million in unemployment insurance.

Payroll fraud, labor violations and tax evasion related to shadow construction work occurs on multimillion-dollar private and taxpayer-funded projects alike, according to David Kersh, executive director of the nonprofit watchdog group Carpenters/Contractors Cooperation Committee.

Companies who rely on unreported or incorrectly categorized workers can low-ball other bidders for contracts

The Shadow Economy and Work in the Shadow:
What Do We (Not) Know?

Fighting tax evasion, the shadow economy and informal (illegal) employment have been important policy goals in OECD countries during recent decades. In order to do this one should have knowledge about the size and development of the shadow economy and shadow economy labor force as well as the reasons why people are engaged in shadow economy activities.
Hence, in this paper I am mainly concerned with the size and development of the shadow economy, black activities or undeclared work, and the shadow economy labor force. Tax evasion is not considered in order to keep the subject of this paper tractable and because too many additional aspects would be involved1. Also tax morale or experimental studies on tax compliance are beyond the scope of this paper2.

"Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents; and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities; and they're elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do, folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces. Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. And term limits ain't gonna do you any good, you're just gonna wind up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So maybe -- maybe -- it's not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here."

Gov. Jerry Brown: Nearly 30% of CA Kids Illegal or 'Don't Speak English'

During Thursday night's California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state's schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English.

Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were "all welcome in California," praised his administration's immigration policies. He said that California is "setting the pace" on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act). Brown then said that these policies were necessary because "about 30%" of schoolchildren in California are "either undocumented or don't speak English."

A California Immigrant Policy Center report found that there are 2.6 million illegal immigrants in California (or 26% of all immigrants) while illegal immigrants make up nearly 10% of the state's workforce, including "38% of the agriculture industry and 14% of the construction industry."

According to The New York Times, 28% of Californians were born outside the United States in 2012 and, according to Pew Research, "Latinos make up nearly 40% of the state's population and have made California 'only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality.'"

Jerry Brown in his Jesuit Robes:

“I am applying the truth I was brought up on.” The truth of the Jesuits’ founder, Ignatius Loyola, whose principles, says Brown, have “worked for 400 years.” – Jerry Brown

Jesuits are also known as “God’s Marines” and as “The Company” like the CIA. In 1958, Jerry Brown above with his father, Governor Edmund G. Brown, completed a three-year study at the Jesuit-seminary Sacred Heart Novitiate. Brown’s fourth year, he was at U.C. Berkeley and graduated a year later with a BA degree. This would strongly suggest that his studies at Jesuit Novitiate were undergraduate work and he completed the fourth year of Jesuit studies at U.C. Berkeley. Four years is generally considered the time required to become a full fledged clandestine Vatican II (infiltrate secular society) Jesuit Priest, a foot soldier for the Pope and the Catholic Church.

Brown's Lead Is All from Latinos, Kashkari Leads Among Whites

A new Public Policy Institute of California poll reveals that the huge lead California Governor Jerry Brown holds over his challenger, Neel Kashkari, can be attributed to one salient factor: Brown’s massive lead among Latino voters. The poll's data show Brown is winning 73% of votes from Latinos, as opposed to 19% for Kashkari.


California has the most Latino residents of any state, over 14 million. Brown’s state budget projected that Latinos are now the largest single racial/ethnic group in the state, comprising 39% of the population. California and New Mexico are the only states where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality.

Gov. Brown coasts to historic fourth term
November 5, 2014, 12:30 AM

California voters decisively elected Gov. Jerry Brown to a historic fourth term Tuesday, a rare bright spot for Democrats on a night when Republicans celebrated huge victories in the rest of the nation..

Brown handily defeated GOP challenger Neel Kashkari and voters also approved the two propositions that the incumbent championed — a $7.5-billion water bond measure and a state rainy-day fund. Brown pointed to those victories as he ruminated on his reelection outside the historic governor's mansion in Sacramento shortly after the polls closed.
"This fourth term, no one's ever had it, no one's ever going to have it again," said Brown, the son of a former governor. "I take the responsibility and the opportunity very seriously, and every part of my mind, my body, my imagination, I'm going to throw into this next four years."

The point of this Prop 47 was to allow thousands of (drug mules) deportable illegal aliens to stay now because they are no longer "felons" . It's all part of the plan...

Let me make it clear that I don't believe any user of drugs should be put in prison for it . If society wants to help you get off them great, but how does prison help?

Also the US Supreme Court is forcing California to unload some prisoners due to overcrowding ....

This also allows the state to commit selective incarceration, rather than equal punishment under the law...

Prop. 47 puts state at center of a national push for sentencing reform
 Five major foundations, headlined by a philanthropic group run by New York billionaire George Soros, have poured millions of dollars to push for changes in California's policies on crime and imprisonment. The campaign is aimed at shaping public opinion, media coverage, research and grass-roots activism on the issue.

Soros' Open Society Foundations in 2012 also gave a $50-million grant to the National Drug Policy Alliance to "advance drug policy reform" in states across the nation.

California Governor Is Still Intent On Defying The Supreme Court On Prison Overcrowding
 by Nicole Flatow Posted on August 14, 2013 at 9:00 am

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court once again reiterated its position on California’s prison overcrowding: It’s still not okay. The high court refused to temporarily block the latest federal court ruling that California must find a way to release 10,000 inmates by the end of the year to comply with a previous high court ruling that the state’s prison overpopulation amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.

New DHS immigration rules: Drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, gun offenders not top deportation priorities
 By Byron York  | November 22, 2014 | 8:49 am

Priority Two offenders, whose cases are less urgent than criminals in Priority One, include the following:

aliens convicted of a "significant misdemeanor," which for these purposes is an offense of domestic violence; sexual abuse or exploitation; burglary; unlawful possession or use of a firearm; drug distribution or trafficking; or driving under the influence; or if not an offense listed above, one for which the individual was sentenced to time in custody of 90 days or more (the sentence must involve time to be served in custody, and does not include a suspended sentence)

DHS further defines a "significant misdemeanor" as an offense for which the maximum term of imprisonment is one year or less, but greater than five days. In addition, the guidelines contain a possible out for illegal immigrants accused of domestic abuse. "Careful consideration should be given to whether the convicted alien was also the victim of domestic violence," the guidelines say. "If so, this should be a mitigating factor."

Priority Two also includes "aliens convicted of three or more misdemeanor offenses, other than minor traffic offenses or state or local offenses for which an essential element was the alien's immigration status." But there's an important footnote to that. The three offenses must arise out of three separate incidents. If an illegal immigrant committed a single act that resulted in multiple misdemeanor charges, it would count as one charge for DHS counting purposes

Napolitano Says ‘We Don’t Have To Listen To This Crap’ As Half-Naked Students Protest Potential UC Tuition Hikes

March 18, 2015 9:18 PM

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – University of California President Janet Napolitano remarked to a fellow regent that they “didn’t have to listen to this crap” as underwear-clad protesters denounced potential tuition hikes during a meeting Wednesday in San Francisco.

Napolitano was sitting next UC regent Chairman Bruce Varner as a group of about two dozen protesters shouted loudly, denouncing potential tuition hikes when she made the remark, which she may not have known was being recorded.

As the protests began, the cameras stayed on the regents. There was some confusion over what to do. That’s when Napolitano leans over to Varner and said, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her hot mic caught the comment.

Kristian Kim was one of the students protesting the 5% tuition increases every year for five years. “It’s an insult to have her as the president of UC,” said Kim.


The comment was a different tone from Napolitano at the very same meeting. “They want to be sure that their voices are being heard and I want to commit to them that their voices are being heard,” she said.

Governor Jerry Brown and Napolitano said they were finding common ground during talks on the university system’s budget. The pair are the only members of a committee charged with recommending changes in how the university system operates and spends its money.

Jerry Brown ‘Starting to Look Good to Democrats’

Jerry Brown is “starting to look good to Democrats,” according to MarketWatch, citing the fourth-term California governor as a potential presidential alternative to Hillary Clinton in 2016. “The 76-year-old governor of California wowed the politicos with his appearance on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday. He was passionate, sharp and didn’t speak in code.”

Democrats continue to search for an alternative to Clinton, who is trapped in a series of scandals surrounding her tenure at the State Department in the first term of Barack Obama’s administration. On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal noted–in the news section–that the State Department had no inspector general, “the lead watchdog charged with uncovering misconduct and waste,” either in office or nominated during Clinton’s entire stint at Foggy Bottom.

California secretary of state proposes automatic voter registration

By Patrick McGreevy  contact the reporter

Every eligible Californian with a driver’s license would be automatically registered to vote under a proposal Thursday by Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who estimated it would add millions of people to the voter rolls..

Padilla and Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) are modeling their legislation on a "motor voter" law signed last week by the governor of Oregon in an attempt to boost voter turnout.
The California proposal is partly in response to the 42% record low turnout in California’s November election, as well as this month’s Los Angeles election, which saw about 10% of eligible voters go to the polls.

“One of the biggest barriers to citizen participation is the voter registration process,” Padilla said. “A new, enhanced California Motor Voter law would strengthen our democracy. It would be a game-changer.”

California was ranked 38th in the nation on voter registration in 2012 by the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Election Performance Index.
More than 7 million [illegal aliens ] Californians who are eligible to vote are not registered to vote, including a disproportionate number of young people.
She predicted the proposal would involve a “big cost,”  [a  typical communist line... ]
Padilla noted that Oregon is expected to be able to expand its voter rolls by 300,000 people, but he said the number should reach the millions in California

Jesuit Jerry Brown to meet Jesuit Pope and cut California Gas use by 50 percent by Dictate
California Gov. Jerry Brown to Meet With Pope on Climate Change
By  Associated Press
Updated at 12:49 PM PDT on Friday, Jul 10, 2015
Published at 11:18 AM PDT on Jul 10, 2015

California Gov. Jerry Brown announced Thursday that he will travel to Vatican City later this month to discuss climate change and modern slavery with dignitaries including Pope Francis as the governor seeks to burnish his legacy as a climate change activist.

Brown, a former Jesuit seminarian, plans to attend a two-day event starting July 21 hosted by the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences.

The focus is on two issues highlighted in the pope's recent teaching document, called an encyclical, in which he chastised international lawmakers for failing to adopt effective, long-term policies that would protect the environment and help those who suffer most from global warming.

It comes on the heels of his address this week to the Climate Summit of the Americas in Toronto, Canada, where he warned that the world is on a collision course with fossil fuels, and is part of a broader effort by Brown in his final term as governor to be lead on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

A Brown-sponsored bill pending in the state Legislature would set what the administration calls the most aggressive carbon reduction benchmark in North America. California aims to boost statewide renewable electricity use to 50 percent, have drivers use half as much gasoline and make buildings twice as efficient under the proposal.

The Vatican event will be attended by the pope, representatives of the United Nations and mayors and governors from around the world, the governor's office said.

The meeting of local and regional officials comes as national governments attempt to reach an agreement to reduce emissions before they gather in Paris for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December.

Gov. Brown Talks To KCAL9 About Bill That Would Mandate Reduction In Gas Usage
July 16, 2015 10:26 PM

LOS ANGELES (  — As Gov. Jerry Brown prepares to travel to Rome next week for an international climate conference, the debate over a bill aimed at reducing gas usage in California is heating up.

Brown fully supports SB-350, which would mandate a 50-percent cutback in California’s gas usage in the next 15 years, arguing that it’s a prime factor in global warming.

“We think this is reckless legislation and one that people certainly need to be aware of because it’ll impact every single motorist in the state of California,” Tupper Hull of the Western States Petroleum Association said via Skype.

Critics charge the bill provides no specific plan to achieve the massive cutback in gas usage. That would be left up to the California Air Resources Board, which those critics, like the oil industry say, would have no limits on what it could mandate.


The bill appears to be well on its way to passage having already cleared the state Senate and some Assembly committees, but the debate over how to cut in half California’s dependency on gas by 2030 is possibly just beginning.

INTRODUCED BY   Senator Mendoza
            FEBRUARY 27, 2015

   An act to add Sections 1596.800 and 1597.622 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to day care facilities.


   SB 792, as introduced, Mendoza. Day care facilities: immunizations.
   Existing law, the California Child Day Care Facilities Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of day care centers, as
defined, and family day care homes, as defined, by the State Department of Social Services. A violation of the act is a crime.
Existing law requires a child to be immunized prior to admission to a day care center or family day care home. Existing law authorizes an
exemption from those provisions for medical reasons or because of personal beliefs, if specified forms are submitted to the day care
center or family day care home.

   This bill would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized against
influenza, pertussis, and measles. Because the bill would extend the application of a crime under the act, the bill would impose a
state-mandated local program.

   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.


  SECTION 1.  Section 1596.800 is added to the Health and Safety Code, immediately following Section 1596.799, to read:
   1596.800.  A person shall not be employed at a day care center, if that person has not been immunized against influenza, pertussis, and

  SEC. 2.  Section 1597.622 is added to the Health and Safety Code, immediately following Section 1597.621,, to read:
   1597.622.  A person shall not be employed at a family day care home, if that person has not been immunized against influenza,
pertussis, and measles.

  SEC. 3.  No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because
the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or
infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the
Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California

AB 60 was championed by Democrats and “immigrant advocates.”
The law is structured in a way that prevents the DMV from sharing information on illegals with agencies.

The bill’s chief sponsor–Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Watsonville)–responded to the massive number of illegals getting licenses by suggesting AB 60 makes California roads more secure. He said, “Our roads are now safer knowing 400,000 people who were likely already driving are licensed and insured.”

soon there will be a red terror led by those released from the prisons ...
SAN FRANCISCO - Nearly 1,400 lifers in California's prisons have been released over the past three years -- a sharp turnaround in a state where murderers and others sentenced to life with the possibility of parole almost never got out.
February 25, 2014, 5:58 PM

Since taking office three years ago, Gov. Jerry Brown has affirmed 82 percent of the parole board decisions, resulting in a record number of inmates with life sentences going free. 

Brown's predecessor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, authorized the release of 557 lifers during his six-year term, sustaining the board at a 27 percent clip. Before that, Gov. Gray Davis over three years approved the release of two.
Today, an inmate convicted of first-degree murders can expect to serve an average of 27 years- almost twice what it was two decades ago before California became the fourth state to give governors the politically fraught final decision on lifer paroles.

California prisons have released 2,700 inmates under Prop. 47
By Melody Gutierrez
Updated 9:05 am, Friday, March 6, 2015
SACRAMENTO — California’s prisons have released 2,700 inmates after their felonies were reduced to misdemeanors under a ballot measure that voters approved in November, easing punishment for some property and drug crimes.

The mass inmate release over the past four months under Proposition 47 has resolved one of the state’s most ingrained problems: prison overcrowding, state prisons chief Jeffrey Beard told a Senate committee at a legislative hearing Thursday. Prop. 47 has allowed the state to comply with a court-ordered inmate reduction mandate a year ahead of schedule, Beard said.

But law enforcement leaders say they’ve already seen an increase in crime, and they believe it’s because of Prop. 47.

Lawmakers: Thousands Of Violent Felons To Be Released In November Under New Sentencing Guidelines

WASHINGTON — Thousands of dangerous federal prison inmates will be released in November as a result of the U.S. Sentencing Commission’s decision to lower federal sentencing for all drug trafficking and distribution crimes, two Republican lawmakers warned Tuesday.

According to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, the release will include inmates with violent criminal histories who committed crimes involving assault, firearms, and even murder.

Goodlatte and Grassley sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch Wednesday asking for more information about these inmates including a history of offenses for each offender projected release date, any known aliases of the offender along with the full legal name, the offender’s country of citizenship, and whether BOP has notified or intends to notify ICE about the release of any unlawful criminal aliens.

Billionaire seeks oil refiner transparency on profits from California gasoline prices
Posted on August 5, 2015  |  By Associated Press   

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer is calling on state legislators to require oil companies to disclose how much they make in profits from refining oil in California.

Steyer was joined by the nonprofit Consumer Watchdog Wednesday in condemning what they called historic profits for oil refiners at the expense of consumers.

A brief supply shortage brought a huge rise in wholesale oil prices in California in July. Drivers in some parts of the state paid more than $4 a gallon for gas.

Prices have since decreased.

According to Consumer Watchdog, Californians paid $1.2 billion more for gas than the rest of the nation in July.

Steyer said he has not yet identified any lawmakers who intend to carry the legislation.

Report highlights overly high gas prices in California

A new report from Consumer Watchdog reveals that since California’s record gasoline price spike began in February, Californians have paid $4.8 billion more than the rest of the nation for regular gasoline. (Chuck Bennett/Torrance Daily Breeze/File)
By Kevin Smith, San Gabriel Valley Tribune
Posted: 08/05/15, 11:08 PM PDT


A new report from Consumer Watchdog shows that Californians are getting gouged at the pump.

• Californians have paid more than $4.8 billion more than the rest of the country for regular gasoline since the price spike began in February.
Refiner margins — the amount of money they collect for each gallon of gasoline — set a record for California in July at $1.61 for branded stations.
Valero’s California profits hit $294 million during the second quarter of 2015 — 11 times more than a year earlier.
Californians often pay $1 more per gallon for gas than the national average.

Source: Consumer Watchdog

That figure comes from a Consumer Watchdog analysis of state and federal data, which deducts California’s slightly higher taxes.

“People have to make choices between filling up their tank and paying the mortgage,” said Jamie Court, president of the Santa Monica-based organization. “There has never been this type of gouging in this state before and it’s got to stop.”

The organization unveiled its report Wednesday in a news conference at its offices. They were joined by Tom Steyer, founder of NextGen Climate, an organization that seeks to prevent climate disaster and preserve American prosperity.

“The oil refiners are raking in historic profits,” Steyer said. “They’re shipping gasoline from California to foreign countries while there’s a shortage here at home. That’s good old-fashioned highway robbery.”

Steyer is calling on the state Legislature to address the problem. He is proposing a measure that would force oil companies to be more honest and transparent about the reasons behind gas price spikes. Specifically, the legislation would:

•Require oil companies to fully disclose the profits they make from refining gasoline in California and the amount of taxes they pay to the state.

•Require oil refiners in California to give the public advance notice of planned maintenance and outages at their oil refineries.

•Require oil companies to have a plan to maintain a minimum level of gasoline reserves in order to prevent price spikes.

•Increase the legal and financial penalties for oil companies if they illegally conspire to increase gas prices.

The California Energy Commission also notes that refiner margins — the amount of money refiners collect for each gallon of gasoline — set a record for California in July. The margin for the week of July 13 stood at $1.61 for branded stations. Before 2015, the margin had never exceeded $1.30 per gallon, and the average amount they have received per gallon since 1999 has been 48 cents.

Gas, tobacco taxes to be debated by California Legislature
By Jessica Calefati, [email protected]

SACRAMENTO >> When lawmakers return from summer break today, they’ll have less than a month to solve two huge problems that have vexed the Legislature for decades: fixing California’s crumbling roads and funding health care for the poor.

If all goes according to plan, solutions will emerge in two special sessions. Requested by Gov. Jerry Brown amid this year’s budget negotiations, the sessions on transportation and health care will force lawmakers to focus on the two topics in hopes of striking some historic deals.

But compromises may be tough to come by.

Democrats hoping to solve the problems by raising taxes — including the dreaded gas tax — can no longer rely on supermajorities, which they lost last year.
The white-hot tax issues should make the next four weeks among the most exciting Sacramento has seen in years. All eyes will be on Brown, who is poised to ask the Legislature to tax Californians without getting their approval at the ballot box for the first time since he took office in 2011.
Special legislative sessions are somewhat rare. In California, only governors have the power to call for them. And when they do, McCuan said, they’re often trying to control the Legislature’s agenda. They differ from regular legislative sessions in that lawmakers may introduce bills only on a single topic.
Still, creating a new framework to tax managed health care plans remains the Brown administration’s “No. 1 priority,” said a source close to the governor who was not authorized to speak publicly about special session negotiations.

The tax structure California uses now must be phased out by the end of the fiscal year because it doesn’t comply with new Obama administration rules that dictate how health care plans may be taxed by the states.

Gov. Jerry Brown’s plans for massive water tunnels have yet to win approval, but a report shows California already is planning to take up to 300 farms to acquire land for the project.

A 160-page report prepared by state contractors lays out plans to move rapidly to eminent domain to acquire land for two 30-mile-long tunnels.

The tunnels would help ferry water from Northern and Central California to Southern California.

Wow ... the california catholics now have a fascist Jesuit sewing circle of hell now ...

Jesuit Jerry Brown to bring back reductions in California ..

Papal authority in California? Roman Law ? This is the end of the US Constitution!!!
Like AB32, SB350 mandates environmental and climate change goals by 2030. Those goals include a 50 percent reduction in gas and diesel usage, a 50 percent increase in renewable electrical generation and a 50 percent increase in energy efficiency of buildings. SB350 still must be debated by the state Assembly and then passed on to Gov. Brown for his signature. While amendments are possible, SB350 is still expected to become law.

As it is currently written, SB350 has the same two problems as AB32 – no strategies and insufficient funding – and once again, CARB is given full authority with no accountability or oversight.
As Yogi Berra once said, “It is déjà vu all over again!”
Halle Berry, Catholic bishops lobby lawmakers on climate bill
SB350 would cut California gasoline use, boost renewable energy
The bill, known as SB 350, passed the state Senate earlier this summer but has run into resistance in the Assembly, particularly among moderate Democrats.
De Leon held a news conference with Catholic bishops Jaime Soto of Sacramento and Stephen Blaire of Stockton to advocate for the bill.

The legislation being considered, SB 350, would require greater energy efficiency in older buildings, more renewable energy generation and lower gasoline consumption on state roads.

State Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) held a press conference with Catholic leaders to talk about Pope Francis' encyclical, which called for action on climate change.

INTRODUCED BY   Senator De León
                        JUNE 29, 2015


   WHEREAS, Pope Francis is a global defender of the poor and all victims of injustice, including those suffering the devastating impacts of climate change; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis, the leader of 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide, released a Papal encyclical on June 18, 2015, in which he issues a clarion call to action on climate change; and
   WHEREAS, A Papal encyclical is a "letter" to bishops and considered the highest teaching of a pope; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis in his Papal encyclical recognizes that reversing global warming, halting the depletion of our resources, and combating environmental degradation falls upon us all: government,
the private sector, and individuals; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis declares that the climate "is a common good, belonging to us all"; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis states that a solid scientific consensus indicates a disturbing warming of the climate, accompanied by rising sea levels and extreme weather events, even if a scientifically
determined cause cannot be attributed to each phenomenon; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis states that the problem is aggravated by a model of development based on the intensive use of fossil fuels, which is at the heart of the worldwide energy system; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis sees an urgent need to develop policies so that in the near future the emission of carbon dioxide and other highly polluting gases can be drastically reduced by finding alternatives to fossil fuels and developing sources of renewable energy; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis warns that the exploitation of the planet has already exceeded acceptable limits while the problem of poverty remains unsolved, and that "doomsday predictions can no longer be met
with irony or disdain"; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis states everyday experience and scientific research show that the gravest effects of all attacks on the environment are suffered by the poorest; and
   WHEREAS, Pope Francis states that a true ecological approach must integrate questions of social and environmental justice in debates on the environment, "so as to hear both the cry of the Earth and the
cry of the poor"; and
   WHEREAS, California has already begun to incorporate questions of social and environmental justice in its approach to climate control, focusing resources to combat environmental degradation in California'
s poorest communities; and
   WHEREAS, The California Legislature recognizes the alarming rate of global warming caused by fossil fuels and the urgent need to continue to work toward a low-carbon economy, while fighting environmental degradation in our poorest communities and increasing their access to cleaner energy; and
   WHEREAS, California is home to more Catholics than any other state in the nation with nearly one in three residents who self-identify as Christians being Catholic; and
   WHEREAS, the Papal encyclical is anticipated to be not only of great importance in parishes throughout California, the nation, and world, but it is also expected to have significant political ramifications; now, therefore, be it

   Resolved by the Senate of the State of California, That members of the Legislature review and take into account the Papal encyclical on climate change in relevant legislative actions; and be it further

   Resolved, That the Governor and executive branch of state government consider the implications of the Papal encyclical and climate change in their policy and fiscal actions to prevent further
environmental degradation; and be it further

   Resolved, That appropriate policy committees of the Legislature convene hearings to consider the policy implications of the Papal encyclical and seek testimony from religious leaders, state officials, environmental organizations, business groups, and the general public; and be it further

   Resolved, That the United States Congress and President Obama consider the implications of the Papal encyclical and climate change in their policy and fiscal actions to prevent further environmental degradation; and be it further

   Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate transmit copies of this resolution to the author for appropriate distribution.

Bill Requires California Day Care Workers to Need Vaccines
Posted 12:59 PM, October 11, 2015, by AP Wire

 Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill to further strengthen California’s mandatory vaccine laws by requiring that people who work or volunteer at day care centers be vaccinated against certain diseases.

The Democratic governor announced Sunday that he approved a bill requiring day care centers and homes to maintain immunization records proving their workers and volunteers have been vaccinated for the flu, pertussis and the measles.

Lawmakers approved SB792 by Democratic Sen. Tony Mendoza of Artesia this fall after an earlier debate over vaccinations in schools roiled the Capitol for months.

In June Brown signed a hotly contested bill imposing one of the strictest school vaccination laws in the country, following an outbreak of measles at Disneyland late last year.

Following up on a report from last month, it was earlier this year when Oregon took a historic step, turning the traditional model for voter registration on its head. Though the trend in recent years has shown some Republican state policymakers making registration more difficult in many states, Gov. Kate Brown (D) and the Democratic-led legislature made Oregon the nation’s first state with an opt-out, rather than an opt-in, model.

For years, the burden has been on the individual – if you’re eligible to vote, it’s up to you to take the affirmative steps needed to register. Oregon, however, embraced automatic voter registration, though anyone who wants to withdraw from the system voluntarily is free to do so.

And now, Oregon has some company.

In the aftermath of record-low voter turnout in California’s most recent midterm election, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed a landmark measure into law on Saturday that would allow all eligible citizens of the state to be automatically registered to vote when they go to the Department of Motor Vehicles’ office to obtain or renew a driver’s license.

The “New Motor Voter Act’ would allow Californians to opt out of registering to vote. In the November 2014 election, just 42% of registered voters cast ballots. According to Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who sponsored the bill, nearly 7 million Californians were eligible but not registered to vote.

The law will take effect in January.

New California Employment Laws for 2016
November 12, 2015


Additional Protected Classes In Unruh Civil Rights Act (SB 600)

The Unruh Civil Rights Act has been California's primary civil rights legislation outside of the workplace since its enactment in 1959. SB 600 increases the Act's protections, prohibiting discrimination in business establishments based on citizenship, primary language, or immigration status. Despite these additions, the bill does not require the provision of services or documents in a language other than English, except as otherwise required by law.

PLANNING AND ACTION: The Unruh Act has generally not been held to apply to claims of employment discrimination (which are instead covered by the Fair Employment and Housing Act), but does regulate a variety of other relationships, including customer relationships.

Increased Prohibitions on Using "E-Verify" (AB 622)

Current California law prohibits the state, or any of its subdivisions, from requiring an employer to use electronic employment verifications systems, such as E-Verify, except when required by federal law or as a condition of receiving federal funds.

AB 622 expands the definition of an unlawful employment practice to prohibit an employer from using the E-Verify system at a time or in a manner not required by a specified federal law or not authorized by a federal agency memorandum of understanding to check the employment authorization status of an existing employee or applicant who has not received an offer of employment, except as required by federal law or as a condition of receiving federal funds.

AB 622 also requires employers who use E-Verify to provide to the affected employee or applicant any notification issued by the Social Security Administration or the United States Department of Homeland Security containing information specific to the employee or applicant's E-Verify case or any tentative non-confirmation notice.

PLANNING AND ACTION: Outside of federal government contractors, there are few California employers who are required to use E-Verify.

Employers who have been voluntarily using E-Verify should be aware of potential enforcement action after January 1, 2016, although the legislation may potentially be challenged as preempted by both current and proposed federal legislation.

Jerry Brown Admits $15 Min Wage Bad; Signs Anyway
by Joel B. Pollak 4 Apr 2016

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Monday to raise the statewide minimum wage to $15-per-hour, the highest in the U.S. While admitting a $15 minimum wage made no economic sense, he said it made “moral” sense.

Brown signed a statewide increase to $10-per-hour less than two-and-a-half years ago. and opposed a new increase to $15 until pressure from unions caused him to relent. (Union contributions to moderate Democrats also helped.)
The call for a $15 minimum wage is expected to resound nationwide. Already, Democrats are making it a theme of their political campaigns.

After struggling, Jerry Brown makes assisted suicide legal in California
October 5, 2015, 5:50 PM |Reporting from Sacramento
By Patrick McGreevy • Contact Reporter

Caught between conflicting moral arguments, Gov. Jerry Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, signed a measure Monday allowing physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients who want to hasten their deaths.

Brown appeared to struggle in deciding whether to approve the bill, whose opponents included the Catholic Church.

The new law is modeled after one that went into effect in 1997 in Oregon, where last year 105 people took their lives with drugs prescribed for that purpose.

The law will take effect 90 days after the Legislature adjourns its special session on healthcare, which may not be until next year — January at the earliest, November at the latest.

Tim Rosales, a spokesman for Californians Against Assisted Suicide, which includes doctors, advocates for the disabled, the California Catholic Conference and other religious groups, criticized Brown’s action.

“This is a dark day for California and for the Brown legacy,” Rosales said. “As someone of wealth and access to the world’s best medical care and doctors, the governor's background is very different than that of millions of Californians living in healthcare poverty without that same access — these are the people and families potentially hurt by giving doctors the power to prescribe lethal overdoses to patients.”

Gun rights activists say they won’t comply with California’s new laws
Protesters gather in Sacramento to tell Gov. Jerry Brown they will defy restrictions
Measures include the banning of semi-automatic rifles with ‘bullet buttons’
The new laws infringe upon citizens’ constitutional rights, protesters argue

By Tyler Foggatt
[email protected]

Fifty or so gun activists gathered Saturday morning at Sacramento’s Cesar Chavez Plaza to
protest Gov. Jerry Brown’s signing of six gun control measures they said would turn “law-abiding citizens into criminals.”

One bill Brown signed will expand the state’s assault weapons ban to include “bullet-button” rifles, which allow users to quickly dislodge a magazine of ammunition by pressing a button. Others prohibit citizens from possessing magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and require background checks on people purchasing ammunition.

These stricter measures come as pressure grows nationwide to do something to rein in the proliferation of guns following a string of mass shootings, including one last month that left 49 people dead in a Florida gay nightclub.


Cory Gwathney, a co-organizer of the protest who lives in Chico, said the rally had been in the works for over two months. The initial goal was to prevent Brown from signing the bills, Gwathney said, but because the laws were signed prior to the protest, the activists changed their message to one of noncompliance.

“He passed them yesterday before we could get out here, which sort of threw a wrench in the plans,” said Gwathney. “Now we’re just trying to send the message that we’re probably not going to comply. They’re infringing on our rights, and we’re not going to stand for that.”

Gwathney said it’s unlikely people will actually register their bullet-button rifles or turn in their large-capacity magazines as the laws require. People have invested thousands of dollars in bullet-button rifles, ammunition and magazines, Gwathney said, joking that his guns are his 401(k) plan.

Lawsuit filed challenging California’s open carry ban
8/18/16 | by Chris Eger

Taking a cue from an appeals court decision upholding the state’s strict “may issue” concealed carry doctrine, gun owners in the Golden State filed suit Wednesday seeking to carry them openly again.

On Monday, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals shot down requests from gun rights groups to rehear cases in which an 11-judge panel of the court held in June that the right to carry a concealed firearm in public is not, and never has been, protected by the Second Amendment.

At the heart of the matter was the right to carry a gun outside the home for personal protection, which advocates felt the court dodged when they concentrated on the concealed carry aspect alone and not carry rights overall.

As California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that did away with open carry in 2011, the only avenue to keep and bear arms in the state since then has been to obtain a permit from the local sheriff or police chief. However, the process is easier said than done due to the state’s allowance for “may-issue” permitting using a “good-cause” requirement administered by local authorities.

Now, with sheriffs still allowed to decline to issue concealed carry permits, a group of Los Angeles County residents — Michelle Flanagan, Samuel Golden, Dominic Nardone and Jacob Perkio — with the support of the California Rifle and Pistol Association, want to be able to openly carry and have named state Attorney General Kamala Harris and L.A. County Sheriff James McDonnell in a federal lawsuit to be able to do just that.

They maintain that McDonnell is so miserly in issuing carry permits that to even seek one is futile. A 2015 report from the Center for Investigate Reporting found that L.A. County, with a population of over 10 million, only had 560 active permits of which at least 87 of those were issued to judges.

“Because California law prohibits them from openly carrying firearms and Defendant McDonnell denies them the only lawful means of carrying a concealed firearm, Plaintiffs are completely barred from exercising their right to bear arms — in any manner,” argues the 31-page filing. “They are thus entitled to relief from the complete abrogation of their fundamental rights.”

The group is seeking the courts either find that California’s laws prohibiting the open carry of firearms violate the Second Amendment or, that the policies limiting carry of a concealed firearm for self-defense are unconstitutional.

Backers of California Secession From US 'Seek to Open Embassy in Russia'
Ben Amstutz US 19:59 21.11.2016 (updated 23:07 21.11.2016)

Supporters of California secession want to open an embassy in Russia according to the head of the Yes California Independence Campaign, Louis Marinelli. He announced this to the American news website Business Insider. Radio Sputnik spoke with Marinelli about why he seeks to open a Californian embassy in Russia.

“We are going to have a vote to make California an independent country in 2019 and we want to lay the ground work now so that after the vote results are in we can begin to request international recognition of California as an independent nation,” Marinelli said.

He further said that his party is going to apply for membership to the United Nations and whether the application will be accepted or not is heavily reliant on the fact that the Security Council must accept the application. There are five countries in the world that have veto power over that decision and one of them is Russia. “We want to start laying the groundwork now to have an opportunity to have a dialogue with the Russian people about California becoming an independent country, so that we can later on seek Russia’s support to recognize our independence results,” Marinelli said.

California secession organizers say they've opened an embassy -- in Moscow

California gained an embassy in Russia last weekend, at least in the eyes of those who have promised to seek a statewide vote on secession, nicknamed "Calexit," in 2018.

Louis Marinelli, a San Diego resident who is the leader of the group promoting  an effort to turn the state into an independent country  , organized the Moscow event that was publicized on social media.

"We want to start laying the groundwork for a dialogue about an independent California joining the United Nations now," he said in an email Monday.
Marinelli is currently working as an English teacher in Russia, and said he is there working on immigration issues related to his wife, who is a Russian national.

Child Prostitution Legalized in California:  Starts Jan 1, 2017

There are simply no words...

California Democrats legalize child prostitution

By Travis Allen • 12/29/16 1:58 PM

Beginning on Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right.

SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution.

This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California's state government with a two-thirds "supermajority." To their credit, they are sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking. Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side.

The unintended but predictable consequence of how the real villains — pimps and other traffickers in human misery — will respond to this new law isn't difficult to foresee. Pimping and pandering will still be against the law whether it involves running adult women or young girls. But legalizing child prostitution will only incentivize the increased exploitation of underage girls. Immunity from arrest means law enforcement can't interfere with minors engaging in prostitution — which translates into bigger and better cash flow for the pimps. Simply put, more time on the street and less time in jail means more money for pimps, and more victims for them to exploit.

As Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley, a national leader on human trafficking issues, told the media, "It just opens up the door for traffickers to use these kids to commit crimes and exploit them even worse." Another prosecutor insightfully observed that if traffickers wrote legislation to protect themselves, it would read like SB 1322.

Minors involved in prostitution are clearly victims, and allowing our law enforcement officers to pick these minors up and get them away from their pimps and into custody is a dramatically better solution than making it legal for them to sell themselves for sex. That only deepens their victimization and renders law enforcement powerless to stop the cycle of abuse. SB 1322 is not simply misguided — its consequences are immoral.

Unfortunately for Californians, SB 1322 isn't an outlier — it's only the tip of the liberal iceberg. 2017 will see the Golden State subjected to wave after wave of laws taking effect that are well-intentioned but disastrous embodiments of progressive utopianism.

One such new Democratic-authored law throws open the door to even greater government dependency on the part of the poor by rolling back proven reforms. In 1996, welfare reform was one of the greatest social legislation achievements of the last century, ending the lifetime welfare system and putting millions of Americans on the road to self-reliance and self-respect. In its wake, California lawmakers passed a law barring increased payments to women who have more children while still on welfare, in order to encourage women to achieve independence before having more children.

It's a tough provision that works — which was apparently irrelevant to Gov. Jerry Brown, who just signed a bill repealing that prohibition. Henceforth, no matter how many children someone has while on welfare, the state government will ratchet up payments with each child, with no limit. Incredibly, the Democratic author of this bill claims she wants to discourage women from having more children while on welfare — but instead passed legislation replacing that effective reform with a law that restarts the cycle of welfare dependency.

California Hires Eric Holder as Legal Bulwark Against Donald Trump

LOS ANGELES — Girding for four years of potential battles with President-elect Donald J. Trump, Democratic leaders of the California Legislature announced Wednesday that they had hired Eric H. Holder Jr., who was attorney general under President Obama, to represent them in any legal fights against the new Republican White House.

The decision by the Legislature to retain Mr. Holder, who is now a prominent Washington lawyer, is the latest sign of the ideological battle that may play out over the next four years between this predominantly Democratic state and Washington. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for president, defeated Mr. Trump by more than four million votes here.

“Having the former attorney general of the United States brings us a lot of firepower in order to prepare to safeguard the values of the people of California,” Kevin de León, the Democratic leader of the Senate, said in an interview. “This means we are very, very serious.”

Mr. de León said he expected California to challenge Washington — and defend itself from policies instituted in Washington — on issues including the environment, immigration and criminal justice. He said California Democrats decided to turn to Mr. Holder as they watched Mr. Trump assemble his cabinet and begin to set the tone for his presidency.
The move by Mr. de León and his Democratic counterpart in the Assembly, Anthony Rendon, follows Gov. Jerry Brown’s appointment of Representative Xavier Becerra as attorney general last month, to succeed Kamala D. Harris, who was elected to the United States Senate.
The Democratic Party controls two-thirds of both the Assembly and the Senate in California. Every statewide elected official is a Democrat.


“I am honored that the Legislature chose Covington to serve as its legal adviser as it considers how to respond to potential changes in federal law that could impact California’s residents and policy priorities,” Mr. Holder said in a statement. “I am confident that our expertise across a wide array of federal legal and regulatory issues will be a great resource to the Legislature.

L.A. needs to borrow millions to cover legal payouts, city report says
By Dakota Smith•Contact Reporter
January 9, 2017, 7:55 PM

The Los Angeles City Council in recent years has repeatedly settled costly, high-profile lawsuits, agreeing to spend millions of dollars to end litigation brought by grieving families, disability-rights groups and people wrongfully convicted of crimes.

City Hall leaders championed some of the settlements as having a silver lining for taxpayers, such as one in 2015 that created a program to fix L.A.’s buckling sidewalks.

But a surge in legal settlements, along with court judgments against the city, is outpacing the city’s ability to keep up.

With payouts projected to total at least $135 million this fiscal year, budget officials said Monday that the city needs to immediately borrow up to $70 million to avoid dipping into its emergency reserve fund.


In August, the City Council agreed to a roughly $200-million settlement over a housing-related lawsuit brought by disability-rights groups, with the city expected to pay about $20 million a year.

Last month, the council agreed to an $8-million settlement to end lawsuits related to the fatal Los Angeles Police Department shootings of three unarmed men in separate incidents. The payouts are among the highest by the city for deadly police shootings in the last decade.

Two years ago, officials agreed to spend $1.2 billion over the next three decades as part of a legal settlement to fix the city’s massive backlog of broken sidewalks.

The city paid out $110 million in legal cases last fiscal year, according to budget staff. In January 2016, the city agreed to pay out $24 million to settle lawsuits from two men who alleged that dishonest LAPD detectives led their wrongful murder convictions and caused them to spend decades behind bars.

City lawyers concerned about the police misconduct allegations recommended the settlements, saying in confidential memos to the City Council that taking the cases to trial could be even costlier.

Editorial It may be time to worry about the D.A.'s public corruption unit
The Times Editorial Board
August 9, 2016, 5:00 AM

It was no victory for Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey on Friday when two men entered no-contest pleas arising from alleged rip-offs at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Prosecutors in what had once been considered an elite anti-corruption unit of the D.A.’s office mishandled evidence and in so doing may have undermined their own case against events manager Todd DeStefano and had to settle for restitution and six months in jail. He had been facing up to 10 years in prison. Promoter Reza Gerami will now pay a fine.

As reported in the Times on Saturday, the settlement followed incidents in which one member of Lacey’s Public Integrity Division improperly viewed communications between a defendant and his lawyer and had to be removed from the case, and another member of the team then was improperly in contact with the first one.


The point of the Public Integrity Division when then-Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley created it 15 years ago was to ensure that county prosecutors could and would go after corrupt officials who lied to or stole from the public and, in the process, undermined the people’s confidence in democratic government

University of California regents approve tuition increase

Thursday, January 26, 2017 01:42PM

The University of California's Board of Regents has approved a proposal to increase the cost of tuition on Thursday.

The proposal calls for a $282 hike in tuition and a $54 increase in fees, bringing the new total for in-state undergraduates to $12,630 a year.

Out-of-state undergraduates will see an increase of $1,688, bringing their tuition and fees to $40,644 per year.

UC President Janet Napolitano said the increases were needed to maintain the quality of the nation's largest public university system. University officials pointed out that the student population has grown every year and state funding has been cut.

The money will go to things like hiring more faculty, expanding course offerings and providing more financial aid (for illegal aliens) , according to university officials.

This is the first tuition increase in seven years.

Those opposed to the increase said raising the tuition will put even more stress on students already struggling to pay for higher education and could force more students to drop out of college.
UC proposes first tuition increase in six years for more faculty, courses and financial aid

The University of California unveiled a proposal Wednesday for the first tuition increase in six years, saying booming enrollment growth and reduced state support have left campuses scrambling to pay for more faculty, course offerings, classrooms and financial aid.

Under the proposal, tuition would grow to $11,502 for the 2017-18 school year — a 2.5% increase, or $282. The student services fee would increase to $1,128, a $54 increase. But financial aid would cover the increases for two-thirds of the university’s California resident students, who number about 175,500, said UC spokeswoman Dianne Klein.

Nonresident undergraduates would face a total increase of $1,668. They would pay the same increases in base tuition and student fees but also a 5% hike in their supplemental tuition, which would rise $1,332 —  from $26,682 currently to $28,014 next year.

Gov. Jerry Brown will undergo new round of treatment for prostate cancer, but won't miss any work
Jan. 28, 2017, 11:25 a.m

 Gov. Jerry Brown, who first was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012, will begin a new round of treatment for the disease, his office reported on Saturday.

Brown, 78, will maintain his duties as governor during the treatment, according to his staff. No additional details were provided about how long the treatment will take, or what prompted its timing.

"Fortunately this is not extensive disease, can be readily treated with a short course of radiotherapy, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects," said Dr. Eric Small, a UC San Francisco oncologist, in an emailed statement provided to reporters. "The prognosis for Gov. Brown is excellent."

Brown initially learned he had prostate cancer in late 2012 and underwent similar treatment for several weeks. The governor has also been treated for basal cell carcinoma — a type of skin cancer — twice in the past nine years, with reconstructive surgery on the right side of his nose in 2011.

Berkeley Update: Anti-Fascists Resort to Fascism to Shut Down Milo

Berkeley still has rent control, but it hasn’t stopped Milo Yiannapoulos from living rent-free in the heads of the left. So in another triumph for his ironic performance art, a mini-riot has forced the cancelation of his speech here tonight. I turned up for the beginning of the protest at 5 pm, and it was pretty silly sounding and unimpressive. But I noticed there were TV helicopters circling around above the university, and then I started noticing the professional rioters starting to infiltrate. They were obvious for wearing black apparel, having their faces covered in bandanas or something, and carrying backpacks that one might well suspect carried home made ordnance or bricks. There were a lot of people on the periphery talking on their cell phones in what looked like a purposeful way—not the way students appear when they do so. So I thought the better part of valor was to withdraw from the scene.

I’ll add one more observation: I thought the police presence on Sproul Plaza was entirely inadequate for the estimated threat. Anyway, here’s some early photos and commuiques from the university telling everyone to “shelter in place.”

The Berkeley Riots Were A Cowardly Act of Domestic Terrorism
What the media won’t tell you: Last night’s “protest” at UC Berkeley was actually a violent organized riot.
Trent LapinskiFollow
2 hrs ago·5 min read


 According to campus officials the protest soon turned violent as over a hundred and fifty masked terrorists dressed in black, some with shields and helmets, began physically assaulting people trying to attend the event using pepper spray, flags, blunt objects, and fireworks.

The radical left-wing terrorist organization known as Antifa, which stands for Anti-Fascists, successfully lit a generator on fire causing a massive fire which was ignorantly cheered on by protesters as they chanted hate speech in an attempt to shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’ right to free speech. The UC Berkeley campus, which was the birth place of the Free Speech Movement, was ironically forced to cancel the event to protect the safety of students.

The police simply stood down, as Antifa attacked civilians with blunt objects, attacked vehicles, and destroyed several banks, small businesses, and corporate owned franchises such as T-Mobile and Starbucks. While I was not there in person, I witnessed well over a dozen people being assaulted via live video streams, including the driver of a car being pepper sprayed, and another man beaten unconscious in the streets. I even witnessed another driver who hit the gas with a suspected Antifa member still on the hood of his car, and watched helplessly as several people who were live streaming were attacked and had their live streams taken offline.

The police did not intervene, and simply allowed over 150 masked Antifa members to terrorize the downtown area of Berkeley until nearly 10pm at night with few consequences. This was NOT a peaceful protest, this was a highly organized riot, and the city of Berkeley simply let it happen.

McClintock exits with police escort after raucous town hall meeting in Roseville

Facing a packed auditorium and raucous crowd, Republican Rep. Tom McClintock on Saturday defended his party’s national agenda and voiced strong support for President Donald Trump’s controversial executive actions to scale back Obamacare, ban visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Vote him out,” hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the Tower Theatre in downtown Roseville, the Republican-heavy population center of McClintock’s sprawling congressional district. Inside the theater, more than 200 people gathered for a town-hall event hosted by McClintock.

Attendees, some carrying signs that read “Resist,” “Dump Tom McTrump” and “Climate change is real,” pressed McClintock to denounce Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, acknowledge the science supporting the human causes of climate change, and oppose Trump’s executive order temporarily restricting refugee admissions to the U.S.

“I believe that order is constitutional,” said McClintock, one of several comments that elicited boos at the hourlong event.

McClintock’s visit drew hundreds of people, most of whom had come to express opposition to the new administration. Many identified themselves as liberal Democrats and progressives, while party registration in McClintock’s district – which incorporates all or part of 10 counties spanning from Tahoe to Yosemite – is solidly Republican.

“This is really all about resisting the Trump agenda,” said Wendy Wood, chairwoman of Indivisible Sierra Nevada, a local chapter of a political organization formed in response to the election. “Most of us have never participated in political activism of any sort. Something is happening here, and people here are not happy with (Trump) and McClintock. We’re here to vote them out.”

Bay Area Conservatives Keep Meetups Secret Fearing For Their Safety
February 4, 2017 11:01 PM

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Some East Bay conservatives say they live a secret life. They can never tell anyone what they really feel like in fear of their safety.

Robert Ward is coming out conservative, but in a place he says is risky for those who share his beliefs.

“If you witness what happened in Berkeley, actually they are so violent on top of it. I mean being a conservative in the Bay Area is like being a heretic,” says Ward. “You lead a double life. You can never tell your friends and co-workers.”

Robert says several Bay Area conservatives have secret meet ups like the one KPIX 5 was invited to visit in the East Bay.

Organizers asked not to disclose their location or the faces of anyone who attended, but insist this is the way it has to be in a liberal state.

“They seem to pride themselves on being diverse, and they are diverse about everything but their ideology,” says Ward. “I hope that in the future when people see Trump isn’t as scary as they think he is and a lot of the good things that happen and the prosperity comes back and the jobs come back, every one calms down a little bit.”

RADCHICK/Radiation Research and Mitigation: NWO-Full Speed Ahead
Posted on August 27, 2016 | 1 comment
VHF_UHF_LP-antenna1Re-blogged, with many thanks, from RADCHICK, Radiation Research and Mitigation, a highly informative blog run by ophthalmic photographer and nuclear radiation researcher, Cristina “Radchick” Consolo.

A conversation between Professor Darrell Hamamoto of Asian-American Studies at UC Davis and Dr. Leuren Moret, on many subjects, including surveillance issues and technologies at the University of California, Davis, the curious circumstance of an antenna technology expert, Linda Katehi, with old Illuminati bloodline connections brought in as Chancellor of UC Davis, the widespread use of ELFs/ULFs in mind-control, the Jesuit and Skull & Bones connections, and the visible presence of the New World Order on the UC Davis campus.

Adding yet another layer of information to the recent story, reported here, of high radiation levels detected in a UC, Berkeley student housing unit, and attributed by staff there to Government and Law Enforcement satellite technology, Leuren Moret speaks also about how Katehi’s 19 antenna patents have been put to use. “UCD and other UC campuses have increasingly been fitted with many complex antennas and antenna networks since Urban Shield. Many of the technologies are related to Katehi’s 19 patents.

UC has become an EMF prison from the rooftops of the campus to the cell phones of the students, smart meters on buildings, and hidden antennas on cars.”

She also speaks of an integrated, hard-wired surveillance technology network on campuses connected to multiple HAARP arrays permitting the transmission of low-frequency waves on carrier waves, conveying mind-control frequencies of suicide, among other EMF waveforms associated with specific feelings or moods, which Professor Hamamoto corroborates from his long-term observation of UC Davis students.

She reports a  huge spy network on campus, students being trained in group think, and “now being trained to overthrow their own governments.” Additionally, she discusses a rollout of Satanism on campuses nationwide since Fall 2015.

Some 200 Catholic priests suspected of sexual abuse are living undetected in communities across California, according to an attorney who represents hundreds of plaintiffs who sued the LA Archdiocese for molestation they say was inflicted on them by priests and clergy of the church. (Published Saturday, Feb. 11, 2012)

Ray Boucher has mapped sixty locations where suspect priests live, in cities and towns from northern to southern California, and provided those locations to NBC4 exclusively.

“Many if not all these priests have admitted to sexual abuse,” Boucher said. “They live within a mile of 1,500 playgrounds, schools and daycare centers.”

Since none of the priests has actually been convicted of sex abuse, none can be identified under Megan’s Law, or their whereabouts revealed in related public databases.

“What the issue is here, is how you weigh the right of the people,” said Boucher, who is also one of the attorneys representing students in the Miramonte Elementary School sex abuse scandal. “In particular the right of children to be protected from molestation versus the right of privacy."

Leaving Urban Areas For The Political Homogeneity Of Rural Towns
February 14, 2017·4:33 AM ET 
Kirk Siegler

It became clear in the last election that a stark division existed between urban and rural areas. In places such as north Idaho, people with similar political stripes have begun seeking each other out.

When Adrien Koch retired last summer from her job with FEMA in the Bay Area, she and her husband resettled in the wooded mountains of north Idaho. They had visited only a few months before on a vacation but had quickly fallen in love. For Koch, Idaho reminded her of the California she knew in the 1970s.


Since then, northen Idaho counties like Kootenai have seen their population double. Even as late as 2015, the census shows that more than a quarter of all new residents moving to the state still came from California.

The idea that like-minded people like to live together and in some cases are seeking one another out is being put in renewed focus in the wake of the divisive 2016 presidential election. This is regardless of whether it's in the more conservative rural areas or liberal cities.

The rural vote in the Electoral College played a key role in the surprise election of Donald Trump.

The Electoral College is weighted disproportionately to rural, now mostly red states like Idaho. So if you're a conservative and you move up to Idaho from California, your vote has nearly twice as much impact.

This is not lost on people like C.J. Buck, who picked up and moved his entire business — Buck Knives — from Southern California a few years back.

Buck says his family manufacturing business — they make hunting knives mostly — decided to leave the Golden State because business costs (primarily taxes and workers comp premiums) were getting too high. And they didn't have to be there, he says.

Reed also moved here from California, albeit in 1956. She recalls how north Idaho was once the country's top silver producer and union Democrats once ruled up until the late 1980s.

"The lumber mills are all gone, the mines are shuttered down, we do not have labor unions that are active," she says.

Today, Kootenai County doesn't have a single Democrat in an elected office.

"We're very, very white up here," she says. Kootenai County is 95 percent white according to the most recent census, compared with much of California today, where whites are in the minority.

She insists race plays a factor in some people's decisions to move up here.

"No question the white flight is to flee from a multi-racial situation into one into in which everybody looks the same," she says. "It's very dull."

The couple thinks this is a safer place to raise kids than the city they moved from in California. And they like the politics, too. Luis says Idaho is more live and let live.

"The laws are just way too strict compared to up here," he says. "Here you can actually practice your amendment. A lot of people like the freedom."

A gun owner, Luis says that even he was surprised when he first walked into a store here and saw someone openly carrying and it was no big deal. In California he says, someone would call the cops right away.

Mexican Presidential Candidate Holds Anti-Trump Rally in L.A.
16 Feb 2017
Los Angeles, CA

Mexican presidential hopeful Andres Manuel López Obrador held a mass rally in Los Angeles on Sunday to criticize American President Donald J. Trump’s plans to build a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border.

The populist López Obrador hoped to rally supporters against his country’s ruling party, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), and to capitalize on resentment over Trump’s border wall proposal, wire service Reuters reported.


Lopez Obrador also whipped up the crowd by insisting that he would spearhead a move in the United Nations to file human rights violations against the United States.

Subsequently, during a tour of Tequixquiac, State of Mexico, called the Government of Enrique Peña to file a complaint to the United Nations Organization against the management of Trump.

López Obrador said that the US government violates human rights and incurs racial discrimination.

He proposed to the Mexican President to file the complaint and deliver it to the Republican at the meeting scheduled for next Tuesday, January 31.

California Lawmaker Calls For Investigation Of Regulators After Many Report PG&E Bill Hikes
February 2, 2017 4:59 PM By Lemor Abrams

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – One state lawmaker says regulators may be to blame for skyrocketing PG&E bills residents are reporting recently.

Senator Jerry Hill wants to investigate the Public Utilities Commission (PUC). He says something doesn’t seem right and he’s determined to find out what.
Sen. Hill says the PUC is supposed to look at PG&E’s rates monthly based on supply and demand of the product, and transportation costs. Regulators are supposed to make sure there is no price gouging and that rates are [il-]legal and bills are [in-]accurate.

“I am concerned when I hear that rate payers are getting charged that much of an increase and using the same amount of gas. Something’s wrong,” Sen. Hill said.

Bay Area customers cry foul as PG&E enacts double-digit rate hikes
 Feb 7, 2017, 7:12am PST   

A spokesperson also attributed the recent spike to increased usage caused by colder weather. PG&E did not respond to comment asking for how much business rates had been raised under the new fee structure.
"The most significant factor was the approval of a gas rate increase, which was approved in the summer and went into effect on Aug.1, 2016. Gas usage increases during colder months," PG&E spokeswoman Andrea Menniti told the Business Times. "Normal, seasonal shifts in energy use combined with the August changes resulted in higher bills for some customers."

Bay Area customers are voicing increasing outrage at much larger than normal PG&E bills they received in January, as the utility's double-digit rate hikes began to hit home.

PG&E said that between December 2015 and December 2016, "a number" of approved rate increases resulted in residential rates increasing 21 percent. Rates increased 7 percent on Jan. 1, 2015, and then a further 13 percent on Aug. 1, with at least three rate increases for electricity happening in the last year alone.

"I received my PG&E bill today and it went from $180 last month to $250 this month and I don't even turn on my heater," Margee Longnecker, a resident in Vallejo told the Business Times. "The only thing that was different from last month is that I received an electric blanket for Christmas but I don't think that would increase the bill by that much. Outrageous."

Her neighbor, Janet Youngdale, agreed, saying her bill went up $200 from the same time period last year, to a total of $511 in January.
"I paid .42 cents per kilowatt hour for more than half of my total usage and we aren't flagrant over consumers," Youngdale told the Business Times. "I feel so ripped off. I'm looking at solar, but I know that's not an option for a lot of people. It's disgraceful that PG&E can do that to people."

U.S.-Mexico border wall fight: California considers divesting from companies involved in the project
By Katy Murphy | [email protected] |

PUBLISHED: March 20, 2017 at 11:59 am | UPDATED: March 22, 2017 at 9:39 am

SACRAMENTO — Three California Democrats have a warning for contractors who sign up for President Donald Trump’s border-wall construction project between the U.S. and Mexico: Build it, and we will divest from your company.
In the latest act of resistance against the Trump administration, the state lawmakers have introduced a bill that would force the state to drop its pension investments in any companies involved in the project.

“This is a wall of shame and we don’t want any part of it,” Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, said in a statement. “Immigrant stories are the history of America and this is a nightmare.”

Assembly Bill 946 would require the California Public Employee Retirement System and the California State Teachers Retirement System — the two largest public pension funds in the nation, with investments of $312 billion and $202 billion, respectively — to liquidate investments in any company involved with the wall’s construction within a year. It would also require the pension-fund management to report a list of those companies to the Legislature.

Los Angeles Mayor Expands Immigrant Protections
Directive applies existing LAPD policies to other city agencies
By Alejandro Lazo
March 21, 2017 11:08 p.m. ET

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Tuesday restricted city employees from cooperating with federal immigration officials and instructed police at the ports and airports to refrain from investigating a person’s immigration status.

The directive expands to other city agencies the existing policies of the Los Angeles Police Department—which since 1979 has prohibited officers from determining immigration status. Since 2014, the LAPD has also refused to honor requests from federal immigration officials to detain illegal immigrants arrested for nonviolent crimes.

The move is the latest by a Democratic mayor to institute policies aimed at countering President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement policies. Police chiefs and Democratic mayors have argued that city police forces need to be separated from the duties of civil immigration enforcement to build trust between police and immigrants. Mr. Trump has said such policies foster lawlessness.

Brown Proposes 12-Cent Gas Tax Hike To Fix California Infrastructure; GOP Blasts Plan
March 29, 2017 5:39 PM

SACRAMENTO ( — California Gov. Jerry Brown announced a plan Wednesday to hike gas taxes and vehicle fees to raise more than $52 billion over 10 years to fix California’s roads and bridges in what critics say would be the largest such increase in state history.

The state’s Democratic leaders said Wednesday that they would pay for it with a big increase in the gas tax, higher car registration fees and a $100 charge on emission-free vehicles.

The proposal would boost gasoline excise taxes by 12 cents a gallon, a 43-percent increase. It also includes a sliding fee on vehicles, with owners of cheaper vehicles paying less.

Each California driver spends approximately $700 per year in extra vehicle repairs caused by rough roads, according to Brown’s office, which says if California does not make investments to fix the roads now, it will cost eight times more to replace later.

California Legislature Takes First Step Towards Single-Payer Health Care

The Democrat-controlled California legislature held its first hearing Wednesday on the state adopting a single-payer health care system, nationalizing $287 billion of health care spending for 24 million residents.

With Obamacare’s days numbered, California Democrats are proposing the “Healthy California Act” (HCA) as a replacement.

The real power behind HCA is the California Nurses Association / National Nurses Organizing Committee / AFL-CIO union, ranked as one of the fastest growing unions in the U.S. with 86,000 dues paying members in hospitals, clinics and home health agencies. The California union and its national brothers and sisters have not been shy about stating that their goal is to end free enterprise insurance, and replace it with single-payer “Medicare for All.”

Associated Press

Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.

Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and '50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.

It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.

Jerry Brown defies Trump on world stage
The California governor will fly to China to rally support for his climate change policies.
 By David Siders    | 06/01/2017 06:06 PM EDT

LOS ANGELES — For the past two years, California Gov. Jerry Brown has been aggressively recruiting other state and local governments to sign on to their own, sub-national climate pact.

But that campaign has taken new urgency under President Donald Trump, who announced Thursday that he’ll withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. It’s a reflection of the roiling conflict between the president and the nation’s most populous state, but also the ambition of a governor who, after a lifetime in politics, is seizing an unexpected opening on an international stage.

“I’m on the side of the [ Satanic ] angels,” the former Jesuit seminarian said in an interview before flying on Friday to China, where he will rally support for his climate policies next week. “I’m going to do everything I can, and people are going to join with me.”
“If Obama was still in office, this phenomenon would not be occurring,” said former California Gov. Gray Davis, Brown’s onetime chief of staff. “But Jerry keeps pushing … People, when they think of climate change, see Jerry Brown as a legitimate alternative [to Washington]. It’s not make believe. It’s real.”

‘Woefully incomplete’ universal health bill dead for the year in California
By Taryn Luna and Christopher Cadelago
[email protected]

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon put the brakes on a sweeping plan to overhaul the health care market in California Friday, calling the bill “woefully incomplete.”

Rendon announced plans to park the bill to create a government-run universal health care system in Assembly Rules Committee “until further notice” and give senators time to fill in holes that the bill does not currently address.

“Even senators who voted for Senate Bill 562 noted there are potentially fatal flaws in the bill, including the fact it does not address many serious issues, such as financing, delivery of care, cost controls, or the realities of needed action by the Trump administration and voters to make SB 562 a genuine piece of legislation,” Rendon said.

Democratic Sens. Ricardo Lara and Toni Atkins, who introduced the proposal, acknowledged the bill was dead for the year. Lara and Atkins had described the bill as a work in progress when it passed the Senate earlier this month without a funding plan. A legislative analysis pegged the cost at $400 billion.

Plan To Install 50,000 Cell Towers In California Faces Opposition
June 28, 2017 7:48 PM By Phil Matier

WALNUT CREEK (KPIX 5) – Up to 50,000 cell phone towers coming to cities across California.

But will you get a say on where they pop up?

California cities are now fighting back at a proposed law that is moving quickly through the legislature.

They say it would allow phone companies to put up new antennas in your neighborhood, like it or not.

Liccardo said, “You are talking about an industry that will net $500 billion after full build out.”

Telecom contributed $2.4 million to California’s Democratic and Republican parties in the 2016 election.

State Sen. Ben Hueso (D-San Diego) says, “5G wireless has the potential to be a game changer.”

But to pave the way for that game change, telecom companies need to put up between 30,000 and 50,000 of cell antennas — including in your town — over the next five years with only limited local say.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said, “Neighborhoods would be seeing something the size of refrigerators going up on street poles and could say nothing to stop it.”

Solano County Supervisor Erin Hannigan said, “Could be on a library, could be on a school.”

Election Watchdog Group Slams California for Denying Voter Data to Commission
What does the Secretary have to hide?
Breitbart - July 4, 2017

The Election Integrity Project (EIP), a California-based volunteer organization that aims to increase transparency in the voting process, has slammed a decision by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to refuse to cooperate with President Donald Trump’s Commission on Election Integrity in its efforts to investigate claims of voter fraud.

Secretary Padilla states that he does not want to “legitimize already debunked claims of massive voter fraud.” California’s Election Integrity Project (EIP) asks not only when, where and how did the “debunking” take place, but more importantly, why protest an opportunity to conclusively prove through third party investigation his assertion that there is no election fraud in California? What does the Secretary have to hide?


Concerns about voter fraud in California have been raised since it began handing out drivers licenses to millions of illegal aliens a few years ago.

Critics urge that the quickest way to eliminate concerns over mass voter fraud in California would be to cross-reference jury duty response cards and DMV records against voting history.  Other, much smaller states that have done this have found an extraordinarily large number of ineligible individuals registered, and many voting.

In a statement, the EIP said (original emphasis):

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, along 25+ other Secretaries of State (SOS) has refused to cooperate with the bipartisan President’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
He was asked to simply supply the state’s voter list to the Commission so it can investigate practices that could lead to improper or fraudulent registrations and voting. The requested information is, for the most part, public information, and no more than any candidate, education organization, research organization, among others, are privy to.

California's 'sanctuary state' law
By Kyung Lah and Alberto Moya, CNN
Updated 10:30 PM ET, Mon July 3, 2017

... under a proposed California law, that partnership with ICE would end. And many law enforcement officials aren't happy about it.

A controversial law

State Sen. President Kevin de León is author of the legislation, also known as the "sanctuary state" law. It's being debated by the state Assembly after the state Senate passed it in April.

De León said it would expand so-called "sanctuary city" policies -- enacted around the country to shelter [ ILLEGAL ]immigrants from President Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration -- by prohibiting local law enforcement from acting as federal immigration officers.

The law, SB 54, does state that local law enforcement should inform ICE when the county jails undocumented immigrants convicted of a violent felony. But Sheriff Hutchens believes the law still builds a wall between her agency and ICE.


Sheriff Youngblood, who says he's conservative and supports the Trump administration's harder line on illegal immigration, believes SB 54 gives "sanctuary to criminals."

The first prophecy which reportedly was given by Nebuchadnezzar shortly before he died is preserved in the work of Megasthenes.

Cyrus takes Babylon

In October 539 BCE, the Persian king Cyrus took Babylon, the ancient capital of an empire covering modern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. In a broader sense, Babylon was the ancient world's capital of scholarship and science. The subject provinces soon recognized Cyrus as their legitimate ruler. Since he was already lord of peripheral regions in modern Turkey and Iran (and Afghanistan?), it is not exaggerated to say that the conquest of Babylonia meant the birth of a true world empire.

On Tuesday — the Fourth of July — the prominent developer, now 77, was on hand to unveil a new public art installation in Los Angeles, the Freedom Sculpture, which Razi and others in the Iranian American community hope will be a beacon for the world.

The 20,000-pound piece is set upon travertine stone
and was built entirely in the U.S. It is the newest addition to Century City — a neighborhood of towering office buildings — but it traces its inspiration back 2,500 years to the Cyrus Cylinder, which was unearthed by the British Museum in 1879.

The 9-inch barrel is inscribed with the story of Cyrus, the king of Persia, and his conquest of Babylon. The artifact is seen as a testament to how Cyrus brought justice and peace to Bablyon.
Funding for the sculpture came from a large crowdfunding campaign that saw contributions from about 1.1 million supporters from around the world, said Farhad Mohit, the founding vice chairman of the foundation. Organizers did not want one or two wealthy donors underwriting the project, Mohit said.

“It’s led by Iranian Americans but it represents much more than that.

California Voter fraud ? how could that be ?
Judicial Watch Warns California: 11 Counties Have More Voters than Voting-Age Citizens
by Joel B. Pollak
5 Aug 2017

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog organization, has sent a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla on behalf of the Election Integrity Project, noting that there are 11 counties in the state with more registered voters, and alleging that the state may be out of compliance with Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
Judicial Watch lays out the specifics: “[T]here were more total registered voters than there were adults over the age of 18 living in each of the following eleven (11) counties: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%).” The letter notes that the percentage in L.A.

The letter contains a threat to sue the Secretary of State if Padilla does not remove from the rolls “persons who have become ineligible to vote by reason of death, change in residence, or a disqualifying criminal conviction, and to remove noncitizens who have registered to vote unlawfully.” It gives Padilla 14 days to respond, and 90 days to correct alleged violations of the law.
Padilla has been one of the main voices in opposition to President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, refusing to share voter data with it on the argument that doing so would “legitimize false claims of massive election cheating last fall.

California: Illegal Aliens Cannot Be Arrested if They are Crime Victims or Witnesses
by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly
3 Sep 2017

In California, illegal aliens be exempt from arrest for immigration violations if they are crime victims or witnesses starting January 1st, under a new law signed Friday by Governor Jerry Brown.

According to the Associated Press:

    The measure is one of several authored by state lawmakers to ensure people living in the country illegally who otherwise follow the law are not deterred from reporting crimes or serving as witnesses.

Police are already prohibited from detaining people who report or are assisting with investigations of hate crimes.

The new law, which takes effect Jan. 1, will extend the protection to victims and witnesses of all crimes unless police are executing a warrant.

It will also prohibit police from turning a crime victim or witness over to federal immigration authorities without a warrant.

In recent months, the Democrat-controlled legislature in California has taken a whole host of measures to protect illegal aliens from any and all immigration enforcement under the new administration — including banning ICE agents from California courthouses and Labor offices, and pushing a bill to make the entire state a sanctuary for criminal aliens.

California is home to more illegal aliens than any other state — no surprise, given that California currently offers people in the country illegally unprecedented benefits, including free college tuition, the right to practice law, and legal assistance to avoid deportation.

Democrats who have long dominated the state promised earlier this year to be the center of resistance to all of Trump’s policies, especially any threat of immigration law enforcement.

California becomes first 'sanctuary state' for undocumented migrants
October 6, 2017

Los Angeles (AFP) - California became the first "sanctuary state" for undocumented immigrants Friday, a decision criticized by the Trump administration which believes the move will compromise security.

California's governor, Democrat Jerry Brown, signed the landmark legislation -- Senate Bill 54 (SB54) -- which grants better protections to people who are in the US without permission, including those who have committed crimes.

... in a statement, ICE acting director Tom Homan responded: "The governor is simply wrong."

The law will "undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing its federally mandated mission," Homan said.

"Ultimately, SB54 (...) creates another magnet for more illegal immigration," he insisted, adding ICE will have "no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests."

ICE said it will also likely send immigrants arrested in California to detention centers outside of the state, "far from any family they may have in California."

A number of cities in California, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, have already banned police officers from collaborating with ICE on operations to capture undocumented immigrants.

California Hepatitis A Outbreak on Verge of Statewide Epidemic
by Chriss W. Street
8 Oct 2017
Newport Beach, CA559

The California hepatitis A outbreak is on the verge of reaching statewide epidemic status, as cases have spread through homeless tent cities from San Diego north to Sacramento.

California health officials have reported that at least 569 people have been infected with the hepatitis A liver disease and 17 have died since a San Diego County outbreak was first identified in November. Cases have migrated north to homeless populations in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Sacramento over the last 11 months.

Although local and state authorities have tried to underplay the risks and severity of the outbreak, the most recent annual totals for cases of hepatitis A in the United States was 1,390 in 2015, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). California only reported 179 cases during the same year.

The highly-contagious hepatitis A outbreak may have taken root because of the City of San Diego’s efforts in the run-up to Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game held at Petco Park in July 2016 to push the homeless, and the rampant drug and prostitution trade among them, out of the downtown tourist venues. Those effort included locking public bathrooms and essentially relocating the homeless to the congested tent city encampments that stretch for blocks east of downtown near freeway onramps.

legal to spread HIV in California  !!!
California lowers penalty for knowingly exposing partners to HIV
By Alaa Elassar and Laura Diaz-Zuniga, CNN
Updated 1:35 AM ET, Sun October 8, 2017

 (CNN)Starting January 1, 2018, it will no longer be a major crime in California to knowingly expose a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection. Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation on Friday that lowers the offense from a felony to a misdemeanor.

The California legislature passed SB 239 on September 11.

The law previously punished people who knowingly exposed or infected others with HIV by up to eight years in prison. This new legislation will lower jail time to a maximum of six months.

The new law also reduces the penalty for knowingly donating HIV-infected blood from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Bill sponsors Sen. Scott Wiener and Assemblyman Todd Gloria, both Democrats, argued California law was outdated and stigmatized people living with HIV, especially given recent advancements in medicine. Evidence has shown that a person with HIV who undergoes regular treatment has a negligible chance of spreading the infection to others through sexual contact.

Hepatitis A outbreak: State of emergency declared in California
Friday, October 13, 2017 05:34PM
Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency over the deadly hepatitis A outbreak in California.

The emergency proclamation, which was issued by Brown on Friday, allows the state to increase its supply of hepatitis A vaccines in order to control the current outbreak.

Immunizations from the federal vaccine program have been distributed to at-risk populations in affected areas, but additional supplies are needed, according to a statement released by Brown's office.

The emergency proclamation gives the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) authority to immediately purchase vaccines directly from manufacturers and distribute them to impacted communities.


California is experiencing the largest hepatitis A outbreak in the United States transmitted from person to person - instead of by contaminated food - since the vaccine became available in 1996.


Hepatitis A infection typically causes fever, a general ill feeling, yellowness of the skin, lack of appetite and nausea. Severe hepatitis A infection is rare but is more common in people with underlying liver disease and can cause the liver to fail, which can lead to death.

CA Gov Jerry Brown To Climate Protesters: ‘Let’s Put You In The Ground’

Dems once again shutting down debate with threats

Washington Examiner -  November 11, 2017

California Gov. Jerry Brown jokingly called for protesters to be “put in the ground” as they disrupted his speech at a climate change event in Germany.

“I agree with you, in the ground. Let’s put you in the ground so we can get on with the show here,” Brown, a Democrat, responded to protesters Saturday yelling as they chanted about fighting pollution and keeping oil in the ground.

Brown was speaking at the U.S. Climate Action Pavilion on behalf of “America’s Pledge,” which brings together leaders from both the private and public sector to ensure America remains dedicated to the climate goals of the Paris Agreement.

| =- - - -


Gov. Brown is on a 10-day visit to four countries while on his way to the United Nations conference on climate change.

"I wish we could have no pollution, but we have to have our automobiles," Brown said in responding to the protesters disrupting his speech.

President Trump announced in June that the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement, saying it would "undermine" the U.S. economy.

First of all, why is Brown at a climate event in Germany?  Second of all, this is the person who enacted laws:

1.  Making it ok and legal to pimp out children
2.  Making ok and legal to pass on infectious & deadly diseases, knowingly and purposefully.

Both laws are designed to cover up and make ok what pedophile creeps do to children.  So, why would anyone listen to anything he has to say and why is he not impeached?  I mean really, do the majority of Californians really go along with this creepozzoid commie?  And, I bet -- I just bet, that California taxpayers paid for his little Germany excursion.

Resistance Royalty: Pelosi, Soros Headline Left’s Biggest Dark Money Conference
Private memo gives inside look at Democracy Alliance's latest secret donor meeting

CARLSBAD, Calif.—A secretive three-day conference where big money liberal donors are plotting the next steps of the "resistance" will be headlined by Friday speeches by billionaire George Soros and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, according to internal documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Democracy Alliance, a donor club of deep-pocketed liberal donors that each pledge to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups, descended on California's posh La Costa Resort on Wednesday morning for its fall donor summit. The group continued its tradition of secrecy, promising all members and guests of the summit their participation would "remain confidential."

The first page of the conference agenda, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and can be viewed in its entirety below, lays out "participation guidelines," explaining that the Democracy Alliance is a "safe place" for donors and activists to meet. Guests are instructed not to share members' names with the press and not to post to any social media sites, to contact Democracy Alliance if "the media or a blogger" contacts them, and to "refrain from leaving sensitive materials out where others may find them."

This latter directive was ignored.

The agenda for the meeting, titled "Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future," lays out three full days of events culminating in a Friday night dinner headlined by Pelosi.

"What happened was: Democrats brought in new voters. In 1970, only one out of every 100 Virginians was foreign-born. By 2012, one in nine Virginians was foreign-born.
The foreign-born vote overwhelmingly, by about 80 percent, for Democrats. They always have and they always will -- especially now that our immigration policies aggressively discriminate in favor of the poorest, least-educated, most unskilled people on Earth. They arrive in need of a LOT of government services .... if the GOP continues to pretend to see no difference in how different groups vote -- while importing millions more foreigners to vote against them -- then they should get used to a lot more elections like what happened in Virginia last week."

"There isn't much time on the clock before it's lights-out for the GOP. And all Republicans can think to do is argue about how quickly to grant amnesty to so-called "Dreamers" and give the Democrats another 30 million voters."

Top California Dem stepping down amid new sexual harassment claims

A top California Democrat is scrapping his re-election campaign and resigning his leadership post amid growing sexual harassment allegations.

California Assembly Majority Whip Raul Bocanegra announced he plans to step down next year -- after a staffer said he put his hands inside her blouse at a nightclub in 2009 and The Los Angeles Times reportedly presented him with harassment allegations from a total of six women.

Bocanegra reportedly announced he would immediately step down from his post as majority whip, citing “persistent rumors and speculation” over sexual harassment claims.

The decision marks the first resignation or retirement in California tied to the wave of harassment allegations that has swept the country and implicated numerous lawmakers and candidates.

...  “It is because of my deep commitment to you, residents of the 39th Assembly District, that I have made the decision to resign from the State Assembly, effective September 1, 2018, and immediately resign from my leadership position.”

He added: “I am also suspending my campaign and will not run for re-election.”

The Times reported that it was preparing a story with the accounts of the six women and presented Bocanegra's office with those findings on Friday.

Last month, The Times reported that Bocanegra was disciplined in a human resources investigation in 2009 over the female staffer accusing him of “inappropriate and unwelcome physical contact” during his tenure as a chief of staff.

Ohio Republican state Rep. Wes Goodman also resigned amid accusations of sexual misconduct. The Independent Journal Review reported Monday that as many as 30 individuals accused Goodman of inappropriate behavior.

And in Florida, state Democratic Party Chairman Stephen Bittel resigned last week from his post after six former staffers and consultants told Politico that he had allegedly created an unprofessional work environment for women.

One Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate and sitting state Supreme Court justice, Bill O’Neill, last week sought to get ahead of any ‘opposition research,’ by posting an account of his own relationships with “approximately 50 very attractive females.”

Sexual harassment controversy threatens to ensnare Kevin de León

By Katy Murphy | [email protected] and Casey Tolan | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: November 10, 2017

SACRAMENTO — The controversy surrounding sexual harassment in the state Capitol deepened on Friday and threatened to ensnare one of the Legislature’s leading Democrats, Kevin de León, as questions swirled over when the Senate leader became aware of complaints against his weekday roommate.

The plot thickened after a lawyer for a fired Senate staffer told Capital Public Radio that her client and two other employees were handed termination letters in the same meeting in which they detailed inappropriate behavior by their boss, Sen. Tony Mendoza, toward a young female intern.

The attorney’s account contradicted the timeline provided Thursday by De León’s office, raising questions about what the Senate leader, who is challenging U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, knew about the harassment allegations.

Mendoza, 46, repeatedly invited the 23-year-old woman to visit him at night at the Sacramento apartment he shared with De León and once invited her to spend the night at his hotel room at a Yolo County resort, according to Micha Star Liberty, an Oakland attorney for one of the fired staffers.
Mendoza’s alleged misbehavior was first  reported Thursday by the Sacramento Bee.

The three Mendoza aides reported the harassment to Senate officials several times in September before detailing their allegations in a meeting on Sept. 22 — when they were promptly fired by being handed a letter on Rules Committee letterhead bearing De León’s name, Liberty said.

“This smacks of retaliation,” the attorney told the radio station.

Defying Trump again, Jerry Brown pardons immigrants about to be deported
By Christopher Cadelago And Anita Chabria
[email protected]
December 23, 2017 01:36 PM

UPDATED December 23, 2017 06:58 PM

Escalating the state’s showdown with the Trump administration over illegal immigration, California Gov. Jerry Brown used a Christmas holiday tradition to grant pardons Saturday to two men who were on the verge of being deported for committing crimes while in the U.S.

Brown, pairing his state’s combative approach to federal immigration authorities with his belief in the power of redemption, characterized the pardons as acts of mercy.


The Democratic governor moved as federal officials in recent months have detained and deported immigrants with felony convictions that resulted in the loss of their legal residency status, including many with nonviolent offenses that occurred years ago.

The pardoned immigrants will still need to ask immigration courts to reopen their cases, he said.

The detentions of felons has focused on specific ethnic groups in past months, including Cambodians and Vietnamese, according to immigration lawyers handling the cases. Cambodia has been reluctant to repatriate former felons, but acquiesced to accepting more after the State Department stopped issuing visas in September to a small group of top Cambodian officials and their families.

Two of Brown’s pardons are Northern California Cambodian men picked up in October in those immigration sweeps, Mony Neth of Modesto and Rottanak Kong of Davis.

Kong was convicted on felony joyriding in 2003 in Stanislaus County at age 25 and sentenced to a year in jail. Neth was convicted on a felony weapons charge with a gang enhancement and a misdemeanor charge of receiving stolen property with a value of $400 or less in 1995 in Stanislaus County.

Both men came to the United States as children after their families fled the Khmer Rouge regime, and neither has engaged in criminal activity since being released from prison.

Kong and Neth were scheduled to be deported Monday, but a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order last week in the lawsuit filed by Lo’s team, delaying their departure.

Neth, 42, was unexpectedly released from Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center on Friday, said his wife, Cat Khamvongsa, and is back home with his family – albeit with an ankle monitor.

Brown defied the White House in October by signing into law so-called “sanctuary state” legislation, placing limitations on state and local law enforcement’s ability to help federal officials enforce immigration violations.

He fortified the state budget with millions more in spending to help mount a range of immigration-related legal challenges, including cases over the ending of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Other cases seek to prevent construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall, and to stop the federal government from withholding public safety grants from localities that don’t expend public resources on immigration enforcement.
Brown also commuted the sentence of Candace Lee Fox, 57, of Los Angeles, to 15 years to life. Fox has served 33 years in prison for joining others in a killing and robbery when she was 24 and a single mother working as a manicurist.
Senate Bill 54, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown and due to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2018, allows state authorities to refuse cooperation with some federal immigration laws. Here's how it is supposed to work.

CHP officer killed by suspected drunk driver on Christmas Eve in Northern California
 By Cindy Chang
Dec 25, 2017

Andrew Camilleri, 33, was married and had three children who expected their father to come home and help them open Christmas presents, said Asst. Chief Ernest Sanchez at a news conference Monday morning.

At around 11:30 p.m., a red Cadillac hit the CHP vehicle from behind at high speed, Sanchez said.

The impact was so violent that the SUV was crushed to the size of a small compact vehicle.

The 22-year-old driver, who is from Hayward, is suspected of smoking marijuana as well as drinking alcohol before the crash, Sanchez said.

The driver of the Cadillac is in serious condition at a hospital. CHP officials will not release his name until he is in their custody, Sanchez said.

Sanchez said the driver was coming home from a party, where "he had obviously had too much to drink and maybe too much to smoke." There is enough evidence to book him with "some very serious felony charges" after he leaves the hospital, Sanchez said.

Nearly 450,000 People Fled These Three Deep Blue States In 2017
Will Racke
8:23 PM 12/26/2017

Three Democratic-leaning states hemorrhaged hundreds of thousands of people in 2016 and 2017 as crime, high taxes and, in some cases, crummy weather had residents seeking greener pastures elsewhere.

The exodus of residents was most pronounced in New York, which saw about 190,000 people leave the state between July 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last week.

California was the third deep blue state to experience significant domestic out-migration between July 2016 and July 2017, and it couldn’t blame the outflow on retirees searching for a more agreeable climate. About 138,000 residents left the state during that time period, second only to New York.
However, because California was the top receiving state for international migrants, its net migration was actually 27,000. Add to that number a “natural increase” of 214,000 people, and California’s population grew by about just over 240,000, according to the Census Bureau.

What's the Matter with California?
By Michael Walsh January 14, 2018

This just in from what was once the best state in the Union:

    Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income.

    Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per-capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in 2016 (12.5%, compared with 6.27%).

The Left's first, last and only instinct is to throw more money at the problem, but California's already done that. and guess what?

    It’s not as though California policymakers have neglected to wage war on poverty. Sacramento and local governments have spent massive amounts in the cause. Several state and municipal benefit programs overlap with one another; in some cases, individuals with incomes 200% above the poverty line receive benefits. California state and local governments spent nearly $958 billion from 1992 through 2015 on public welfare programs, including cash-assistance payments, vendor payments and “other public welfare,” according to the Census Bureau. California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients.

The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse.


They're not "misguided" -- in fact, they're doing exactly what the progressives designed them to do. Higher housing prices means more money in the pockets of Angelenos and San Franciscans when they go to sell, high energy prices have a disproportionate impact on the poor, generous welfare "benefits" mean an endless supply of new Democrats and permanent employment for the public-employee unions who actually run the state.

It's a perfect racket, and one that will continue unless and until the California Republicans get their act together and begin vigorously contesting what has become a one-party state designed to enrich those at the top, beggar the middle class, and keep those on the bottom in permanent penury.

California Threatens To Prosecute Businesses That Cooperate With ICE

California's Attorney General hit back against plans by federal immigration officials to conduct a "major sweep" for 1,500 undocumented individuals, telling employers state-wide that they face legal repercutions and fines up to $10,000 if they assist federal authorities. The sweep is in response to California's new "sanctuary city" laws which took effect Jan 1.

“It’s important, given these rumors that are out there, to let people know – more specifically today, employers – that if they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office,” said CA Attorney General Xavier Becerra, adding “We will prosecute those who violate the law.”

California bullet train cost surges by $2.8 billion: 'Worst-case scenario has happened'
By Ralph Vartabedian
Jan 16, 2018 | 6:30 PM

The estimated cost of building 119 miles of bullet train track in the Central Valley has jumped to $10.6 billion, an increase of $2.8 billion from the current budget and up from about $6 billion originally.

The new calculation takes into account a number of intractable problems encountered by the state rail agency. It raises profoundly difficult questions about how the state will complete what is considered the nation's largest infrastructure project with the existing funding sources.

The new estimate was presented Tuesday by Roy Hill, who leads the main consulting firm on the project, WSP (formerly Parson Brinckerhoff). Hill said the cost increases were mainly driven by problems including higher costs for land acquisition, issues in relocating utility systems, the need for safety barriers where the bullet trains would operate near freight lines and demands by stakeholders for the mitigation of myriad issues.

Brown did not address the new cost estimate, but said in a news release about Kelly, "Brian has ably led the California State Transportation Agency since its inception and is uniquely qualified to move the nation's first high-speed rail project forward.
Included in the projected $2.8-billion price increase is a $600-million contingency set aside to cover further unexpected problems. That contingency will be funded by unspecified cuts to future construction budgets.

California’s D- in public access to government finances and information, or government transparency, reflects the difficulty citizens, journalists, and watchdog organizations have holding their officials accountable.

‘Culture of corruption’ cited as Oroville sues state over dam crisis
By Dale Kasler And Ryan Sabalow
[email protected]
January 17, 2018 01:20 PM

The city of Oroville sued the California Department of Water Resources on Wednesday over the Oroville Dam crisis, accusing the state agency of mismanaging the dam and knowingly performing inadequate maintenance on its main flood-control spillway.

In a blistering lawsuit filed in Butte County Superior Court, the city said DWR encouraged a “culture of corruption” in which supervisors let underlings get away with shoddy maintenance. In addition, African American employees were subjected to a hostile work environment, including the placing of a noose in a conference room, all of which “undermined the maintenance and safety of the dam,” the suit maintains.

The lawsuit, filed on the city’s behalf by the well-known Bay Area law firm of Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy and Woodland law firm Gardner, Janes, Nakken, Hugo & Nolan, also suggests DWR disposed of a large chunk of concrete from the failed spillway – a piece of material that likely showed evidence of improper maintenance.

“Important maintenance projects were delayed or never completed, and substandard supplies were used to address vulnerabilities in the dam’s armored spillway,” the suit says. “Workers who voiced concerns were silenced by DWR management.”

The suit says DWR neglected dam safety because of “undue influence” by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and other State Water Project member agencies that store water behind the dam and pay for its operation. This influence, which began when Lester Snow was DWR director, contributed to postponement or cancellation of maintenance projects, the suit says.


The lawsuit repeats many of the charges made by the independent forensic team hired by DWR to investigate the February crisis: that the spillway was designed by an inexperienced engineer and was poorly maintained in the decades that followed. The forensic team said the spillway was built on crumbly rock and wasn’t adequately anchored in place. In addition, DWR disregarded warnings that the hillside below the emergency spillway was in danger of eroding, the forensic team said.


The city of Oroville was one of hundreds of local governments, businesses and others that filed monetary claims with the state Department of General Services for costs relating to the dam crisis. The state has rejected all of the claims, prompting plaintiffs to take the state to court.

California to register illegal aliens to vote – automatically
Court orders government to do so for all driver's licenses issued
Published: 3 days ago

WASHINGTON – California will take the next step in blurring the lines between citizens and non-citizens beginning April Fool’s Day when the state complies with a court order to begin automatically registering to vote all those who are granted driver’s licenses.

The state has long provided driver’s licenses to all who simply claimed, without proof, that they were citizens of in the country legally. There were no checks made or documentation required.

But beginning April 1 every person who gets a California driver’s license will be automatically entitled to vote.

“We are very pleased that Californians will have easier access to voter registration,” said Jeremiah Levine, an attorney with Morrison Foerster who represented the voting-rights groups. “We are especially satisfied that changes will be made before California’s statewide and federal primary elections.

The League of Women Voters and three other groups sued the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles and Secretary of State’s Office in May 2017, claiming the state burdens would-be voters by making them fill out the same information on two separate forms to register to vote.

Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from, America’s independent news network.

According to the lawsuit filed last May, California ranks “a dismal 46th in the nation” in its rate of registered voters. More than 5.5 million eligible voters were unregistered as of February 2017, according to state data.

Other plaintiffs in the lawsuit include the ACCE Institute, California Common Cause and the National Council of La Raza.

“What also is certain is that the next governor is
going to be more progressive than Jerry Brown.”

Think California politics is on the far-left fringe?
Just wait for the next elections.

Scott Wilson - February 3

SACRAMENTO — For those who think California politics is on the far-left fringe of the national spectrum, stand by. The next election season, already well underway here, will showcase a younger generation of Democrats that is more liberal and personally invested in standing up to President Trump’s Washington than those leaving office.

Here in the self-labeled “state of resistance,” the political debate is being pushed further left without any sign of a Republican renaissance to serve as a check on spending and social policy ambitions. Even some Republicans are concerned about the departure of Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who proved to be fiscally cautious after inheriting a state seven years ago in deep recession.

The prescription here for Democrats in a state where few — if any — will need to moderate their positions for the general election is simple. “You go left,” said Karen Skelton, a Democratic consultant here.

That means staking out the most liberal stance on issues such as single-payer health care in California, a highly expensive initiative that failed in the legislature last year. The push is in response to the uncertainty surrounding health-care revisions in Washington, but it is estimated to cost twice the state’s annual budget.

Blue State Blues: Jeff Sessions 1, California Democrats 0
by Joel B. Pollak
9 Mar 2018

You could see it in their eyes, and hear it in their voices, on Wednesday: Governor Jerry Brown and the rest of the Democratic Party clique that runs this one-party state knew that they had lost as soon as the Attorney General filed his lawsuit against California’s “sanctuary state” statutes.

Brown flew into a tantrum. Never particularly warm towards opposition — he was downright irascible when Neel Kashkari cleaned his clock in the sole gubernatorial debate of 2014 — Brown is so used to getting his way in this one-party state that he seemed shocked Wednesday by the very idea that anyone would dare to push back.

The governor offered the following points in rebuttal to Sessions’s clear and cogent case that the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause forbade California from blocking the enforcement of federal immigration law:

    1. Sessions is a liar. “The Trump administration is full of liars. They [sic] pled guilty already to the Special Counsel.”

    2. Sessions is from Alabama — “a fellow from Alabama coming to talk to us about secession and protecting human and civil rights.

    3. Sessions is a Nazi. “We don’t need a Gestapo kind of tactic with vitriol spewing out of Jeff Sessions’s mouth. “

    4. Sessions is … a French revolutionary. “The attorney general is basically initiating a reign of terror.”

    5. Sessions is sucking up to President Trump. “Jeff thinks that Donald will be happier with him and I’m sure Donald will be tweeting his joy at this particular performance.” (Trump has not tweeted about it.)

California Attorney General Becerra’s line of attack was simple denial.

He denied there was any conflict between state and federal laws and officials, claiming that the two had “worked in concert” — despite the public irritation of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials at state and local officials’ efforts to block and undermine their efforts in recent months.

Based on supplemental poverty measurements, California is most impoverished state.

 Lynn Graham 1 month ago

Much of this on both sides of the border has to do with cheap labor. Why would a huge corporation move 2000 miles or even to China unless their was a huge amount of profit in it? California state officials are representing these mega-corporations in their state. Why are they so fond of illegals? Follow the money. The politicians term "free trade" means nothing more than cheap and in places slave labor. Labor cost has been the one thing that corporations have complained about since corporations were created, even when that labor is included in the price of the product. So as politicians got so corrupt the term free trade became a much desired and touted thing for the greedy corporations and  corrupt politicians.

Brown’s final California budget stashes billions in reserve

By Adam Ashton  [email protected]
Updated January 11, 2018 08:01 AM

In his 16th and final year as governor, Jerry Brown is using a surplus to stash away billions of dollars in reserves that would help his successor weather a recession while boosting some of his signature programs.

He’s proposed a $190.3 billion spending plan on Wednesday that accelerates funding for his 2013 education law and uses new gas tax revenue to fund $4.6 billion in new transportation projects.

The centerpiece of his plan, though, is a $5 billion jolt to the state’s so-called rainy day fund, which he championed with a 2014 ballot initiative to steady California’s boom and bust finances.

For the first time, the rainy day fund would hold 10 percent of California’s general fund revenue. That would give the state $13.5 billion to use in a fiscal emergency by June 30, 2019.

“We have the piggy bank waiting for the next governor and when the recession happens, he or she will be able to spend that money … and get through the recession with a minimum amount of pain,” Brown said.
“People with higher incomes pay a lot more money, and some of them may be tempted to leave,” he said. “This was an assault by the Republicans in Congress against California and New York and New Jersey,” he said, listing states that made heavy use of the deductions.

California’s rainy day fund

A ballot measure passed in 2014 set a goal of reserving 10 percent of the state’s tax revenues for an emergency. The fund will be 65 percent full by the end of 2017-18, and Gov. Brown proposes a $5 billion deposit in his 2018-19 budget to bring it to 100 percent.

The Root is an English-language American online magazine of African-American culture launched on January 28, 2008, by Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Donald E. Graham, and was owned by Graham Holdings Company through its online subsidiary, The Slate Group.[2][3]

In 2015, Graham Holdings sold The Root to Univision Communications.[4] The site was subsequently re-launched under the Kinja platform used by other Gizmodo Media Group (formerly Gawker Media) websites

California lawmakers have a $190.3-billion state budget plan to consider. Here's some of what it would pay for

Insisting that California lawmakers continue to restrain government spending growth in preparation for a recession he believes is just around the corner, Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday unveiled a state budget for 2018 that proposes banking most of a $6.1-billion tax revenue windfall expected to show up in the fiscal year beginning July 1.

Where would the $6.1 billion in unexpected tax revenue go?

The governor’s budget includes scores of smaller items, from pensions to pot

    The cost to taxpayers of public employee pensions continues to be a source of political debate. Brown’s plan assumes a $6.2-billion payment to the California Public Employees’ Retirement System, or CalPERS — a $389-million increase from 2017-18. The budget projects a payment of almost $3.1 billion to the teachers’ pension fund, CalSTRS.
"CalPERS Is Near Insolvency; It Needs A Bailout Soon" - Former Board Member Makes Stunning Admission
by Tyler Durden

Two weeks ago, in the aftermath of the February 5 volocaust, we quoted David Hunt, CEO of $1.2 trillion asset manager PGIM, who said ignore the volatility spike, the real financial timebomb was and remains public pensions: "if you were going to look for what’s the possible real crack in the financial architecture for the next crisis, rather than looking in the rearview mirror, pension funds would be on our list."

In a brief discussion wondering what municipalities and states will do when local tax revenues decline and unemployment worsens, Hunt said "we're worried about those pension obligations.”

He is hardly alone: having reported over and over and over (and over, and over) again that public pensions are in deep trouble, two days ago none other than Steve Westly, former California controller and Calpers board member - manager of the largest public pension fund in the US, made a stunning admission, confirming everything:

    "The pension crisis is inching closer by the day. CalPERS just voted to increase the amount cities must pay to the agency. Cities point to possible insolvency if payments keep rising but CalPERS is near insolvency itself. It may be reform or bailout soon."

California leaders rebuke Sessions as 'going to war' over state immigration policy
By Jazmine Ulloa and Liam Dillon
Mar 07, 2018 | 6:35 PM | Sacramento

A long-simmering battle between the Trump administration and California over immigration boiled over Wednesday, with Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions deriding the state's "irrational, unfair and unconstitutional policies" and Gov. Jerry Brown accusing the federal government of launching "a reign of terror."

"This is basically going to war against the state of California," Brown declared.

As the Justice Department formally filed a legal challenge to state immigration laws, Sessions told a gathering of law enforcement officers in Sacramento that California was attempting to keep federal immigration officials from doing their jobs, and he charged Democrats with advancing the political agendas of "radical extremists."
State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), author of one of the laws targeted by the legal challenge, accused Sessions of having ideology based on "white supremacy and white nationalism."
"We are going to fight these irrational, unfair and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you and our federal officers," Sessions said as he finished his speech to the California Peace Officers Assn., and some officers stood in ovation. "You can be certain about this: We have your back, and you have our thanks."
Will cop killer's profane tirades make this jury sentence him to death?
Updated March 06, 2018 08:42 AM

Convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes was in court for less than five minutes Monday before he slipped back into regular form for the first day of his death penalty trial.

Bracamontes, who was convicted last month in the slayings of Sacramento sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr., was ushered into court for the start of testimony by Oliver’s partner, Scott Brown.

But, as he has numerous times during court hearings in the case, he unleashed a profane tirade as Brown began to testify, shouting that Brown and his partner were “bothering people” when they asked him for ID in October 2014 and Bracamontes set off on his deadly rampage.

“That’s why I killed the mother------, huh,” Bracamontes said. “You’re all f------ cowards,” he added before he was led out by deputies.

Reputed MS-13 drug dealer found guilty in 2001 murder of teenage runaway

A drug dealer for the Mara Salvatrucha street gang was found guilty Thursday of murdering a 13-year-old runaway whose nude body was found by a hiker in Elysian Park in 2001.

A jury convicted Jorge Palacios, 39, of special circumstance murder and one count of kidnapping to commit another crime. The jury also found gun and gang allegations to be true.

Three other reputed MS-13 gang members — Melvin Sandoval, 38, Santos Grimaldi, 35, and Rogelio Contreras, 40 — are also on trial in the teenager's killing, and a separate jury is hearing closing arguments in the case.

California Appoints Illegal Alien to State Office
by Joel B. Pollak15 Mar 2018

California has its first illegal alien in state office, after Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) appointed Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.

Mateo, an attorney, was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. illegally at the age of 14 with her parents, who are also illegal aliens., according to the Sacramento Bee.
She complained that illegal aliens are not adequately represented in state government, and described her appointment as a step towards correcting that alleged injustice.

“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,” Mateo said, as quoted by Fox News.

De León, who is running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), described Mateo as: “a courageous, determined and intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this country,” according to Fox News.

Mateo, however, seems somewhat confused about which country she prefers.

In a Facebook post in 2016, apparently celebrating her graduation from Santa Clara University School of Law, Mateo declared, in Spanish: “[E]verything is dedicated to Oaxaca, Mexico!! to that land that I miss so much.”

While she is the first illegal alien to hold a state office, she is not the first elevated to public office in California. In 2015, the city council of Huntington Park, California, appointed two illegal aliens to city commissions, sparking a public backlash.

De León and other state officials are stoking an ongoing confrontation with the federal government over federal immigration laws.

Anti-'sanctuary state' movement picks up steam in Orange County
By Cindy Carcamo
Mar 27, 2018 | 5:00 AM

Just more than a week after tiny Los Alamitos voted to defy California's law protecting immigrants in the country illegally, Orange County is poised to become a counterpoint against the state's resistance to the Trump administration's policies.

On Tuesday, Orange County supervisors may consider whether to take up a resolution to condemn and possibly take legal action against the state's "sanctuary" laws.

"These state laws are preempted by federal law," Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson said. "Our officers actually face penalties under state law if they so much as talk to federal agents for the wrong thing. That's just unacceptable and it's contrary to federal law."

Nelson said he'll broach in closed session whether to join a federal lawsuit against the state or launch its own litigation.

Other cities in the county, including Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Huntington Beach and Mission Viejo are also starting to take action to voice their grievances against the state's sanctuary laws aimed at protecting immigrants from President Trump's immigration crackdown.
Once a conservative and Republican stronghold, Orange County has undergone stark demographic shifts. In 2016, Hillary Clinton defeated Trump in the county, which a Democrat hadn't won in a presidential election since the Great Depression.
Orange County gave birth to Proposition 187, a ballot initiative approved by voters that sought to deny public services such as public schooling and healthcare to people in the country illegally; the measure was eventually struck down in the courts. And Costa Mesa passed anti-day laborer ordinances and became the epicenter of the anti-illegal immigration movement during the mid-2000s.
SB 54, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed after the Legislature passed it last year, prohibits state and local police agencies from notifying federal officials in many cases when immigrants potentially subject to deportation are about to be released from custody.

    Bodies of three of their children were also found after being thrown from the car
    The couple's three other children are still missing and searchers have been scouring the coastline looking for them
    Police believe all six of the couple's adopted children were in the car at the time
    Authorities searched the couple's home on Thursday in search of clues as to why the family left and any reason for their trip
    Court documents have revealed the speedometer was 'pinned' at 90 mph
    The family had been visited by child protective services after complaints from neighbors about the treatment of the children

Published: 02:55 EDT, 1 April 2018 | Updated: 08:10 EDT, 1 April 2018


The speedometer inside a lesbian couple's SUV was 'pinned' at 90 mph after it plunged 100 feet off a California cliff with their six adopted children inside, according to court documents.

Jennifer and Sarah Hart, both 39, were killed when their 2003 GMC Yukon XL crashed off the scenic Pacific Coast Highway in Northern California this week.

Authorities say all eight members of the Hart family, including the six children aged 12 to 19, are presumed dead.

The bodies of three of the children - Markis Hart, 19, Jeremiah Hart, 14, and Abigail Hart, 14 - were located at the bottom of the cliff.

Police believe the couple's three other children - Hannah Hart, 16, Devonte Hart, 15 and Sierra Hart, 12 - were also in the car at the time but their bodies have not yet been found.

Mystery surrounds the horror crash given no one saw their SUV drive off a flat, dirt pullout overlooking the Pacific Ocean. 

A search warrant was served at the family's home on Thursday to look for items including a travel itinerary, journals and possible suicide notes. 

According to an affidavit for the warrant, cited by Fox 12 Oregon, the speedometer was 'pinned' at 90 mph.

Investigators said there was no evidence the car hit the embankment as it 'traversed towards the tidal zone below', and there were no 'acceleration marks, tire friction marks or braking furrow marks'.

'Based upon the California Highway Patrol investigation, it is their belief "a felony has been committed,"' the court documents stated, according to Fox 12.

Drug Users Take Over Corridors Of San Francisco Civic Center BART Station
By Wilson Walker
April 25, 2018 at 10:00 pm

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Shocking video is calling attention to what’s going on in one of the busiest BART stations in the Bay Area: junkies blatantly shooting up out in the open as commuters walk by, others slumped along filthy corridors.

It’s a gauntlet commuters walk through every morning at the Civic Center BART and Muni station.

Regular commuter Shannon Gafford knows people have to see it to believe it. “One morning I said, ‘I got to pull out the camera and show my friends this. They’re not going to believe it,’” he said.
The situation in our BART stations is simply unacceptable,” said San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell. “Borders on disastrous.”

This week, Farrell unveiled a $13 million plan to get needles – among other things – off of city streets. But the city’s jurisdiction ends when you head down those BART stairs.

“I don’t care, at the end of the day, if now we have jurisdictional issues,” said Farrell. “As mayor, I want to get something done, and I want to make sure these BART stations are cleaned up.”

While homeless services are offered to those in the city’s BART stations, Farrell says San Francisco police may be needed because BART admits it is simply overwhelmed by the crisis that has landed in its hallways.
“We’re in the midst of national homelessness crisis, and we’re also in the middle of a drug crisis,” said Filippi. “Unfortunately, as a transit agency, we have limited resources and we’re not really equipped to deal with these social issues.”

California Republican Party won?t endorse in race for governor

The results are in. Delegates of the California Republican Party have cast their votes to endorse a candidate in the governor?s race. And their choice is?no one.
Neither met the test. Cox won the votes of 55.3 percent of the nearly 1,000 delegates in attendance, while Allen earned 40.5 percent. That gap is mirrored in recent public-opinion surveys, where Cox has come second in the top-two primary race to Democratic front-runner Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, maintaining a modest lead over Allen.
With the primary just a month away, the stakes are high for the California Republican Party. If neither Cox nor Allen secures one of the top two spots needed to make it onto the November general-election ballot, that could depress turnout among Republicans across the state, to the detriment of GOP candidates at every level.

Palo Alto pastor resigns after nasty tweets about city: 'An elitist sh-- den of hate'
By Annie Vainshtein Updated 6:41 pm, Saturday, May 19, 2018
On his public Twitter account, which has since been removed, the Rev. Gregory Stevens called the city "an elitist sh** den of hate," and "disgusting." Stevens also lambasted the city's "social justice" on Earth Day, calling it a "f****** joke" and criticized the church's elderly community.
In an email statement, Stevens wrote that he had resigned from the congregation to "help minimize the negativity focused on the good community work being done at the First Baptist Church of Palo Alto."

"I tweeted to vent my frustration, and I acknowledge that I did so in an unprofessional and often hurtful way. My Twitter community has always been a small group of progressive ministers and Leftist political activists to whom my rants were geared," he said.
In Stevens' 623-word statement, he elaborated on his frustration with what he perceived as a lack of action to address the city's wealth inequalities.

"In my experience of trying to work with this community for almost 3 years,

I believe Palo Alto is a ghetto of wealth, power, and elitist liberalism by proxy, meaning that many community members claim to want to fight for social justice issues, but that desire doesn't translate into action," Stevens said. "

If the same energies used to organize neighbors around minor parking issues, a young girls choirs, and 'nasty tweets' were honed to fight actual injustices, Palo Alto would be a very different city. Palo Alto needs more action, less lip service."

Less than one week before the California primary, Google listed ?Nazism? as the ideology of the California Republican Party.

In the ?knowledge panel? that provides easy access to information next to search results, Google listed ?Nazism? as an ?ideology? of the party. The word ?Nazism? was hyperlinked to a secondary page that shows ?Nazism? alongside other ?ideologies? of California Republicans like ?Conservatism,? "Market liberalism,? ?Fiscal conservatism,? and ?Green conservatism."

California voters have been casting their absentee ballots for weeks ahead of the next Tuesday?s statewide primary elections which will help determine the majority in the House of Representative and the potential next Governor of the world?s fifth largest economy.

But voters looking for information by searching ?California Republicans? or ?California Republican Party? were getting ?Nazism? next to their search results until Google took the listing down Thursday after a query from VICE News.

Nearly half of Bay Area residents want out, poll shows. The reason why is no surprise
By Michael Mcgough
[email protected]
June 03, 2018 01:02 PM

The idea of a Bay Area "exodus" is no joke, and appears to be growing more vivid and real with each year.

A poll released Sunday by a local advocacy group showed that 46 percent of Bay Area residents surveyed said they want to move out of the area within the next few years. That number is up from 34 percent in 2016 and 40 percent last year in the same poll.

The survey was a joint effort by advocacy group Bay Area Council and public opinion data firm EMC Research. The poll involved 1,000 registered voters in the Bay Area.

The reason for the urge to leave might be pretty obvious, at least to anyone knowledgeable on California: It's just too expensive. Cost of living (45 percent) and housing prices (27 percent) were the main reasons cited among the 461 residents who said they want out.

On top of that, 42 percent of survey respondents called housing costs/availability the most important problem facing the area, beating out traffic (18 percent) and poverty/homelessness (14 percent).

They may be the highest there, but housing prices aren't just booming in the Bay Area. A statewide poll conducted by UC Berkeley last year showed 56 percent of voters have considered moving due to the housing crisis ? and 1 in 4 of those residents said they'd leave the state. Some are already making good on that promise.

The mandatory water conservation standards will be permanent, according to their wording
The Organic Prepper - June 4, 2018

Governor Jerry Brown is retiring but not before he passes a few draconian laws as parting gifts for California. Two bills were signed into law on Thursday of last week to ?help California be better prepared for future droughts and the effects of climate change.?
Senate Bill 606 establishes a ?governing body? to oversee all water suppliers, both private and public and will require extensive paperwork from those utility companies.

Assembly Bill 1668 is where it gets personal.  This establishes limits on indoor water usage for every person in California and the amount allowed will decrease even further over the next 12 years.

The bill, until January 1, 2025, would establish 55 gallons per capita daily as the standard for indoor residential water use, beginning January 1, 2025, would establish the greater of 52.5 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use, and beginning January 1, 2030, would establish the greater of 50 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use. The bill would impose civil liability for a violation of an order or regulation issued pursuant to these provisions, as specified.

Jerry Brown Wants To Tax Drinking Water To Fix California?s Busted Up Infrastructure
3:17 PM 06/04/2018
Chris White | Energy Reporter

California Gov. Jerry Brown is prodding lawmakers to add a sizable tax on citizens drinking water in a bid to fix a beleaguered water system some citizens believe is poisoning poor people in rural areas.

The tax on drinking water, if passed, would be the first in California?s history. The money would go toward addressing drinking water tainted with arsenic and other contaminants in the San Joaquin Valley. Urban water agencies are trying to kill the bill, arguing the issue is confined to California?s rural areas.

Residents and businesses would pay a tax on their monthly water bills, while the average Californian would pay an additional $11.40 per year for drinking water. The agricultural industry would be forced to contribute through taxes on fertilizer purchases and fees paid by dairy farmers. Regulators have long argued California?s water is unsafe to drink.

Officials at the Environmental Protection Agency, for instance, noted in 1995 that California needed $34 billion to clean up its drinking supplies. Nearly 269 of the state?s 3,015 independent water systems are out of compliance with state drinking water standards. Roughly 141 are found in five counties of the San Joaquin Valley.

The bill?s supporters include a mixture of farmers and environmentalists. Farmers are causing the bulk of the problem, Tim Quinn, of the Association of California Water Agencies, said in a statement in May. It can?t be solved ?by putting a charge on somebody?s bill in Los Angeles or San Diego or San Francisco,? he added.

The push to tax water comes on the heels of gas tax legislation Brown, a Democrat, signed in April 2017, which has generated intense opposition. (RELATED: Californians Prepare For Higher Gas Prices Thanks To Governor Brown And Democrats)

Republican Reps. Kevin McCarthy and Mimi Walters of California are using the gas tax increase to generate excitement among GOP votes ahead of the midterm elections in November. Both Republicans want to put a measure on the ballot that repeals the increase. They believe the campaign could increase voter turnout and staunch a blue wave in the state. (RELATED: Governor Brown?s Move To Hike California?s Gas Taxes Could Doom Dems As Elections Approach)

Nearly 58 percent of voters oppose the tax increase, including 39 percent who say they strongly reject the legislation, according to a survey University of California, Berkeley?s Institute of Governmental Studies conducted shortly after the measure was passed. Only 35 percent of voters surveyed favor the law, which raises taxes on gasoline and diesel and hikes vehicle registration fees to fix roads and highways.

California?s sweeping effort to regulate groundwater extraction is still in its infancy. But many community groups are already concerned that too little is being done to involve low-income and disadvantaged residents in managing aquifers dominated by agriculture.

The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, adopted in 2014, was a Herculean achievement for California. Until that time, it was the only Western state with virtually no regulations on groundwater use. The new law requires critically overdrafted groundwater basins to adopt plans by 2020 to sustainably manage their aquifers. Basins identified as medium and high priority have an additional two years.

Sustainability, however, is a loose term under the law. Each newly formed groundwater sustainability agency can define it for themselves, depending on local needs. The stakes inherent in defining that term are huge. If ?sustainability? considers only agricultural interests, for example, small water users with shallow wells could get short-changed.
Amended  IN  Assembly  April 03, 2018

This bill would require the commission, on or before January 1, 2020, to adopt regulations setting standards for the accuracy of water meters purchased, repaired, or reconditioned purchased on and after the effective date of those regulations, including water meters installed pursuant to the Water Measurement Law, described in (2). The bill would allow a water purveyor to install a water meter possessed by that water purveyor before the effective date of the regulations for a time period deemed appropriate by the commission.

Sacramento residents, are you wondering where your water meter is? Or dreading the day you have to pay a metered rate?

After the city approved a more aggressive meter installation program in 2015, crews have continued rolling out construction projects on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis without much fanfare.

More than 70 percent of homes in Sacramento now have water meters installed, according to the latest data, and the city is still aiming to finish the rest by 2020.

Projects in south Sacramento and Valley Hi are about to be completed, according to Marc Lee, the senior engineer with the Department of Utilities in charge of the project. Within the next month, projects in the Elmhurst, Oak Park and Colonial Heights neighborhoods will near completion.

Well Water Metering? Not on My Land, Say California Landowners
by Heesun Wee, CNBC / May.13.2015 / 7:49 AM ET / Updated May.13.2015 / 7:48 AM ET / Source:

In drought-parched California, there's a topic many private landowners remain steadfast about: Water well metering.
Gov. Jerry Brown last year signed the state's first groundwater law, despite years of resistance from the farm lobby. The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act requires local districts to measure and report details on regional groundwater amounts. While documentation on an individual well-owner basis will not be mandated, the regional guidelines mean communities at least collectively have to account for how much groundwater they're extracting. And that likely means more well metering on the horizon.

|  = = = 

behind the curtain ...
Charging customers by volume sends a price signal to customers to use the resource more efficiently (Renwick and Green 2000; Beecher et al 1994).
Despite the known benefits of water metering, there are barriers
. Automatic meter reading (AMR) systems automatically send real-time water usage data to the utility, without the need for an employee to physically read the meter onsite
Utilities using these systems can collect usage data every day, hour, or more frequently, resulting in a more accurate water bill and a more detailed understanding of a customer?s water use patterns
Cities and utilities in California are requiring or incentivizing submetering for multifamily units. In 2010, the San Diego City Council passed an ordinance that requires submeters on all new multifamily residential and mixed use developments with three or more units, as well as in existing buildings when interior water plumbing is being replaced.

This was an important move for the city to help reduce water demand, as multifamily units account for 44% of the housing units in the area (IBA 2010). The ordinance also outlines how the property owner should bill their tenants. Other utilities incentivize submetering through rebates. East Bay Municipal Utility District, for example, offers a rebate to multifamily property owners of up to $250 per meter (East Bay MUD n.d.).
While most California utilities have installed water meters, more than 219,000 customers remain unmetered. For those who have not completed their meter installation program, additional water savings can be realized by expediting meter installation before the 2025 deadline, reducing vulnerability to drought and other water supply constraints.

Debate over snowmobile access in Tahoe forest turns hostile
June 03, 2018 02:54 PM

The debate over snowmobile access in the Tahoe National Forest has turned ugly.

Emails, social media posts and online comments with foul and abusive language prompted Forest Service officials to disable a portion of an online comment system, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported last week.

Tahoe National Forest Supervisor Eli Ilano said he has never seen anything like this.

"It is discouraging because it is not promoting public discourse on the topic," he said.

Supporters of the proposal pushing for more restrictions in the 1,250-square-mile (3,238-square-kilometer) area have been the targets of the online abuse, including anti-gay slurs, foul language and references to violence.

Much of the acreage that would be off-limits to snowmobiles in the preferred alternative, for example, is below 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) in elevation and often lacks the snow depth needed to operate the machines.

At least the Alioto's  didn't let this happen ...
Joseph Alioto, restaurateur, dies at 59
By John Wildermuth Published 4:00 am PDT, Saturday, March 26, 2011
Mr. Alioto was the third generation of his family to run the restaurant, which is still family owned. It was opened in 1925 as little more than a fresh fish stall, where Nunzio Alioto, an immigrant from Sicily, and his wife, Rosa, sold food to the local Italian workers. By 1938, it had become one of the first restaurants on the growing Fisherman's Wharf.

When Mr. Alioto's cousin, the attorney Joseph Alioto , became San Francisco's mayor in 1968, the restaurant became a hangout for Democratic politicians drawn by the famous name. Another cousin, former Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier, held a fundraiser for her own mayoral bid at the restaurant last week.

Alioto worked for the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department and then for the Board of Economic Warfare.[citation needed] He returned to San Francisco after World War II and started an antitrust practice, representing Walt Disney and Samuel Goldwyn, among others, eventually becoming a millionaire.
Joseph L. Alioto was inaugurated on January 8, 1968, served a term, and was handily re-elected in 1971. Alioto delivered the speech nominating Hubert Humphrey at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. There were rumors that Humphrey would select Alioto as his running mate, but Humphrey selected Edmund Muskie.
Joseph Lawrence Alioto (February 12, 1916 ? January 29, 1998) was a successful lawyer and former Mayor of San Francisco, California. He was also known during the transcourse of his career for his alleged ties to known Mafia figures.
In 1971, Alioto's wife, Angelina Alioto (niece of alleged Dallas crime family mobster John Genaro), vanished, reappearing after 18 days to claim that she had taken off to "punish" her husband for neglect. During the time Angelina was missing, she toured the missions of California as part of a religious pilgrimage.

Alioto ran in the 1974 Democratic primary for the governor's office, losing to Bob Moretti and Jerry Brown. Thomas Napolitano, a war veteran, businessman and alleged soldier in the San Jose crime family, was a campaign official in Alioto's unsuccessful 1974 run for governor of California. Angelina claimed a bad omen for Joe to seek the governorship. Two prior mayors of San Francisco, Washington Bartlett and James Rolph were elected governor of California and died in office. Alioto's wife, Angelina, filed divorce proceedings against him in 1975. He remarried in 1978.
San Francisco is America?s biggest public toilet.

California wildfires roar into 'uncharted territory,' fueled by climate change
Jim Schultz,Chelcey Adami and John Bacon, USA TODAY Published 9:54 a.m. ET Aug. 2, 2018

REDDING, Calif. ? The surging wildfires raging across Northern California represent a "new normal" and the state must be prepared to spend billions  of dollars dousing, containing and trying to curb them in the future, Gov. Jerry Brown said.
"We are in a new normal," Brown said. "We are in for a really rough ride."
Jerry Brown: Fire-Fueling Heat Worst 'Since Civilization Emerged 10,000 Years Ago'

Along with a bulldozer contract employee and a Redding firefighter killed in the Carr Fire, the captain of a wildland hotshots team and a Cal Fire heavy equipment operator have been killed in the Ferguson fire burning near Yosemite in Mariposa County. The more than 62,000-acre blaze was 39 percent contained this afternoon.

At a state Office of Emergency Services press conference today, Brown said firefighters would have to adapt to increasingly severe wildfires in the years to come because of climate change.

?We?re fighting nature with the amount of material we?re putting in the environment, and that material traps heat, and the heat fosters fires, and the fires keep burning," he said.

Details Surface About Chinese Spy Who Worked For Sen. Feinstein
August 1, 2018 at 6:51 pm

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) ? New details emerged Wednesday about how a mole for the government of communist China managed to stay by Senator Dianne Feinstein?s side for nearly 20 years.

It happened five years ago, but additional information is just surfacing about how the Bay Area senator?s office was infiltrated by a Chinese spy.

The Bay Area is a hotbed for Russian and Chinese espionage. Late last year, the feds shut down the Russian consulate in San Francisco.

You may remember the thick black smoke that billowing from building before Russian diplomats turned it over to authorities, presumably produced by burning documents.

Now, all eyes are on Chinese intelligence in the Bay Area after the website Politico reported last week that a staffer for Senator Feinstein turned out to be a Chinese spy who reported back to the government officials about local politics.

On Wednesday, the San Francisco Chronicle uncovered additional details in a column written by reporters Phil Matier and Andy Ross.

The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein?s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community.

He even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator.

Feinstein ? who was Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time ? was reportedly mortified when the FBI told her she?d be infiltrated.

Investigators reportedly concluded the driver hadn?t leaked anything of substance and Feinstein forced him to retire.

Former FBI agent and KPIX 5 security analyst Jeff Harp said he was not surprised.

?Think about Diane Feinstein and what she had access to,? said Harp. ?One, she had access to the Chinese community here in San Francisco; great amount of political influence. Two, correct me if I?m wrong, Dianne Feinstein still has very close ties to the intelligence committees there in Washington, D.C.?

Harp ran counter espionage for the FBI in the Bay Area. He said in addition to traditional political intel and diplomatic secrets, Bay Area spies are often focused on things like R&D, technology and trade secrets.

?They also have an interest in the economy here. How to get political influence here,? said Harp. ?What?s being developed in Silicon Valley that has dual-use technology. All of that is tied to the Bay Area.?
Harp pointed out politicians with access to classified information are generally trained on what not to say and when not to say it. But he also noted when you have a driver behind the wheel day in and day out for 20 years, there are more opportunities to slip up.

Feinstein?s office would not comment on the story, saying they do not address personnel matters or investigations, but they added that none of their California offices staffers had ever had security clearance.

The FBI declined to comment on the story.

San Francisco Mayor Lee Raises Chinese Communist Flag, Irks Hong Kong Protest Supporters
Ed Lee says he's not sure why protesters in Hong Kong are agitated.
By Chris Roberts
Published at 5:10 PM PDT on Oct 3, 2014

Pro-Hong Kong demonstrators in San Francisco were incensed to learn of a man in a high place hoisting the flag of their opponents, the "autocratic" Peoples Republic of China: Mayor Ed Lee raised the red flag at City Hall on Thursday.

Lee, the first Chinese-American mayor of a major American city, was honoring China's National Day at a ceremony that featured Nansheng Yuan, China's consul general, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

On the same day, about 150 pro-Hong Kong demonstrators protested outside the Hong Kong Economic Trade Office in San Francisco, the newspaper reported, while tens of thousands, if not more, took to the streets in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong has close ties to San Francisco's Cantonese-speaking Chinese community, though in recent years the city has also become home to Mandarin speakers from the mainland.

Rose Lan Pak (Chinese: 白兰; pinyin: b?il?n; Jyutping: Baak6 Laan4)[1] was a political activist in San Francisco, California, noted for her advocacy for the Chinatown community and her influence on city politics
Pak was born in Hunan, China, on November 27, 1947.[5] She received a Catholic education while growing up as a refugee in Macau and Hong Kong after her father, a businessman, had died in the Chinese Civil War.[3][6] When she was 17, she received a scholarship to attend the San Francisco College for Women

In 2011, Pak was instrumental in obtaining consensus to nominate Edwin M. Lee as the first Asian American mayor of San Francisc
o.[7] Pak said, "This was finally our moment to make the first Chinese mayor of a major city."
Political ties to the People's Republic of China

Pak was an overseas executive director of the China Overseas Exchange Association (COEA), an organization overseen by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office (OCAO) of the State Council of the People's Republic of China.[1] At various times she spoke out in favor of the Chinese government's views, e.g. in 2012 calling all "overseas Chinese" to "defend the homeland? in the conflict about the Diaoyu Islands, and in 2008 opposing a resolution of the SF Board of Supervisors that criticized China for the Tiananmen Square massacre and other repression measures, passed on occasion of the Beijing Summer Olympics torch relay reaching San Francisco.[1][18]

Pak was critical of the Falun Gong movement in San Francisco and in 2004 she banned the group from participating in the city's annual Chinese New Year's Parade.[2] The group and others, including San Francisco Supervisor Chris Daly, subsequently alleged that Pak had connections to the Chinese Communist Party.[2] Pak consistently denied any ties with Beijing.[2]

In an August 2011 interview with the New Tang Dynasty Television and Epoch Times, former San Francisco Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin made similar allegations, claiming that Pak was "the real leader of San Francisco", and that she represented outside governmental interests that "include the People's Republic of China."[19][20]

Rose Pak (Epoch Times).

Rose Pak (Epoch Times).

Pak has very specific and demonstrable ties to the Chinese government. Under her Chinese name, Bai Lan (白兰), Pak is an overseas executive director with the China Overseas Exchange Association (COEA), a foreign affairs organization under the direction of the Chinese government?s State Council Overseas Chinese Affairs Office (OCAO).

COEA?s leadership is composed entirely of Chinese Communist Party officials representing various foreign affairs and ?overseas propaganda? agencies of the Chinese government. These agencies, as Taiwan affairs analyst J. Michael Cole notes, are engaged in an increasingly aggressive propaganda campaign in the United States aimed at undermining U.S. support for a free and autonomous Taiwan.
Pak?s attendance at the CPPCC National Committee assembly was prominently noted by the Beijing People?s Government Overseas Chinese Affairs Office; and by the Communist Party Central Committee?s United Front Work Department, which works closely with agencies such as OCAO, COEA, CCPPNR, and their associated overseas groups in asserting Beijing?s global influence.
One might almost think that they regard San Francisco not as an American city, but as an overseas colony of the People?s Republic of China: A quaint little Beijing-by-the-Bay, with clean air, cable cars, and walk-away crab cocktails for the pleasure of corrupt Chinese Communist Party officials.

California Governor Signs New Water Restrictions Into Law
    Kate Wheeling
    May 31, 2018

California Governor Jerry Brown signed two bills into law Thursday aimed at reducing water consumption in the state, even in non-drought conditions.

"In preparation for the next drought and our changing environment, we must use our precious resources wisely," Brown said in a statement. "We have efficiency goals for energy and cars?and now we have them for water."

The bills?SB 606 from Senator Robert Hertzberg (D), and AB 1668 by Assemblywoman Laura Friedman (D)?require water districts to set targets for water use by 2022

The targets will include a daily allowance of 55 gallons per person for indoor water use, and calculate outdoor water allowances based on regional differences in climate and leak rates for pipes.

Beginning in 2027, districts that exceed their annual budgets will face fines of $10,000 per day during drought emergencies. The indoor allowance is set to drop to 50 gallons per day by 2030.

Californians have already significantly reduced their water consumption since Brown declared a state of emergency in 2014 and imposed mandatory water restrictions. In 2013, residents used nearly 20 gallons more per day than in 2017, according to the State Water Resources Control Board.

California?s insane new water restrictions are the last straw for scores of residents
Thursday, June 07, 2018 by: JD Heyes   

 A new law in the Golden State that limits how much water can be used by families throughout the state is driving more people to throw up their hands in surrender and find other places to live.

As if paying quadruple the national average for a crappy little hovel flat or apartment in most big cities wasn?t bad enough, now Gov. Jerry ?Moonbeam? Brown and his band of merry Democratic lawmakers have made it impossible for most people to do laundry and take a shower on the same day.

Not even kidding.

Under the fiction of human-caused ?climate change,? the new law empowers California nannies to monitor how many toilet flushes, baths/showers, and laundry sessions residents engage in.

?This from politicians who have pushed policies creating homeless and drug abuse crises throughout the state,? writes author and pundit Tammy Bruce at The Washington Times. ?[T]he new bill rations water to a degree that makes it impossible to maintain a healthy home environment.?

California's 20-pound invasive nutria problem could be worse than previously imagined
By Eric Ting, SFGATE Updated 4:00 am PDT, Friday, August 17, 2018

Nutria, a destructive rat-like mammal, is currently burrowing into central California's wetlands. In the spring, the Department of Fish and Wildlife began to warn the public about the dangers of the animal, which devastate agricultural infrastructure by burrowing into levees, roadbeds and canal beds.

But in the past few months, only 200 nutria have been exterminated, 100 of which were found in a pond on a single private farm in central California.

As the agency prepares for an intensive survey of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, officials say they have no idea what the actual numbers of nutria will look like. In April, there were two confirmed sightings of nutria just outside the delta, a region critical to California's waterways.


"Our goal is to keep the nutria out of the delta as much as possible," Tira said. "That's the epicenter of our water control and flood control in California."

Nutria are typically two-and-a-half feet long and weigh 20 pounds, and have the ability to produce up to 200 offspring per year.
Given the species' destructive behavior, it would be an absolute nightmare if nutria gained a foothold in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, since the region helps channel water to cities and farms across the entire state.

"We cannot have nutria reproducing in the delta," Tira said. "The threat to California's economy is too great."


The Department of Fish and Wildlife stated that every single female nutria that's been killed has been pregnant with multiple fetuses. In addition, the nocturnallity of the creature makes it difficult to hunt during the day.

Jerry Brown signs bill eliminating money bail in California

Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed sweeping legislation to eliminate cash bail in California.
The change, which will take effect in October 2019, goes further than any other state in the country to remove money from pretrial detention.

'Today, California reforms its bail system so that rich and poor alike are treated fairly,' Brown said in a statement.

Under Senate Bill 10, California will replace bail with 'risk assessments' of individuals and non-monetary conditions of release. Counties will establish local agencies to evaluate any individual arrested on felony charges for their likelihood of returning for court hearings and their chances of re-arrest.

A person whose risk to public safety and risk of failure to appear is determined to be ?low? would be released with the least restrictive non-monetary conditions possible. ?Medium-risk? individuals could be released or held depending on local standards. ?High-risk? individuals would remain in custody until their arraignment, as would anyone who has committed certain sex crimes or violent felonies, is arrested for driving under the influence for the third time in less than 10 years, is already under supervision by the courts or has violated any conditions of pretrial release in the previous five years.

Taxpayers Funded 'Unprecedented' Armed Protection for Gun Control Sen. Kamala Harris
7 Sep 2018


An examination of expense reports reveal gun control Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) received taxpayer-funded armed protection from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in 2017 and 2018 at events throughout the state.

NBC 4 reports that the protection was ?unprecedented? in that it went beyond the security which the LAPD usually provides ?for dignitaries and officials visiting LA.?

Taxes from residents of Los Angeles funded armed security personnel to protect Harris not only in LA but in other cities throughout the state as well.

Taxpayers even paid for armed security to go with Harris to a party.

NBC Bay Area reported Newsom?s security spending while Mayor of San Francisco as follows:

    How much does it cost to protect the mayor of a major metropolitan city? In Los Angeles, about $450,000 a year. In Houston, about $339,00 a year. In San Francisco, anywhere between $1 and $72 million.

    [On July 7, 2009] SF Appeal revealed?the budget for Newsom?s personal police bodyguards comes out of the San Francisco Police Department?s Investigations Detail, which boasts a $72.9 million budget.

Newsom, like Sen. Harris, pushes restriction after restriction on average citizens ability to exercise their personal right to keep and bear arms.

California's biggest export ... Forest Fire Carbon Monoxide
Wildfires Release as Much CO2 as Cars
By Andrea Thompson | October 31, 2007

Large wildfires in the western United States can pump as much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in just a few weeks as cars do in those areas in an entire year, a new study suggests.
Carbon monoxide from California wildfires reaches skies over Texas, New York and Canada, JPL reports
By Steve Scauzillo | [email protected] | San Gabriel Valley Tribune
PUBLISHED: August 16, 2018

Explosive California wildfires have tainted local air quality this summer with soot, ash and tiny particles that can trigger respiratory problems and make breathing outdoors unhealthy.

But while the thick smoke can be an obvious reminder to stay indoors, wildfires also create carbon monoxide, an invisible, more subtle threat that travels long distances carrying the potential of degrading air quality in other states.

According to new satellite data, carbon monoxide emitted from massive wildfires raging in Northern and Southern California in the past few months is being lofted high into the atmosphere, catching an updraft that sends waves of toxic gas beyond California?s borders into Nevada, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, Texas, and also the Midwest, the Northeast and Canada.

As forest fires devour trees and other plants, they release the carbon stored in the vegetation into the atmosphere.

California just became the first US state to ban plastic straws in restaurants ? unless customers ask

California just became the first US state to ban plastic straws in restaurants ? unless customers ask
Hilary Brueck

California just became the first US state to go strawless: banning the sippers at sit-down eateries in the state, starting in 2019.

On Thursday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 1884, a rule that "prohibits dine-in restaurants from automatically providing plastic straws" to customers. Violating the law can cost a restaurant $25 a day.

Starting in January, if you really want a straw when you sit down in a restaurant in the Golden State, you'll have to ask for it, or get your drink to go.

California city OKs jail time for defying plastic straw ban
By Andrew O'Reilly | Fox News

Sippers, beware.

A California coastal city has become the latest municipality to ban plastic straws, enacting what is potentially the strictest plastic prohibition in the country.

Santa Barbara earlier this month passed the ordinance authorizing hefty fines and even a possible jail sentence for violators who dole out plastic straws at restaurants, bars and other food establishments.

According to the ordinance, violators on their first offense will be given a written warning notice. But the second time a purveyor of plastic straws defies the ban is when the heavy hand of the law could clamp down.

In that case, the ordinance cites penalties from the city?s municipal code for a ?fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), imprisonment for a term not exceeding six (6) months.

In comparison, Seattle, which in the beginning of July became the first major city in the U.S. to ban plastic straws, only fines businesses $250 per offense.

Orange County judge rules California's 'sanctuary state' law unconstitutional
By Marc Cota-Robles and staff
Friday, September 28, 2018 12:17AM

ORANGE, Calif. (KABC) --
An Orange County judge on Thursday ruled that SB54, California's so-called "sanctuary state" law, is unconstitutional.

The Superior Court judge said the law violates the rights of charter cities.

The ruling comes in response to a challenge from Huntington Beach officials. The city opposed the controversial law, arguing it infringes on local governments' authority. The judge agreed, saying cities must be allowed to police themselves.
Huntington Beach City Attorney Michael Gates called the ruling a victory for the state's 121 charter cities.
The City of Huntington Beach will not allow Sacramento to violate its Constitutionally protected rights."

Gavin Newsom Ready to Call CA National Guard Back from Border
29 Nov 2018

California Governor-elect Gavin Newsom revealed on Thursday that he will call back the California National Guard from the border when he is sworn into office in January.

After visiting the Otay Mesa Detention Center, Newsom said California?s National Guard presence ?seems pretty trivial? with 1,800 ?military representatives? at the border. Newsom said he would formally make the announcement to call back the National Guard once he becomes governor.


During the gubernatorial campaign, Newsom said asking for the National Guard at the border was just a ?stunt on the president?s part.?

Governor Jerry Brown sent the California National Guard to the border, but prevented them from working on immigration enforcement.

California Democrats Regain Supermajority in State Legislature
13 Nov 2018
Joel B. Pollak


California Democrats have regained a veto-proof two-thirds majority in the state legislature, thanks to late ballots awarding them victories in several key races.

The state?s Democrats briefly lost their supermajority in the State Assembly after several members resigned due to allegations of sexual misconduct. They lost it in the State Senate when voters recalled freshman State Sen. Josh Newman (D-Fullerton) after he joined a two-thirds majority in voting for the gas tax hike of 2017.

But the gas tax hike survived a referendum, Proposition 6, and the Democrats picked up key seats elsewhere ? most notably in the Central Valley, where Republican State Sen. Andy Vidak had once inspired the GOP by winning a special election in a majority Latino district i :-\n 2013, and winning re-election since.

UC Berkeley Settles Lawsuit over Conservative Speaker Censorship
4 Dec 2018


UC Berkeley reached a settlement with conservative groups that were alleging the school discriminates against conservative speakers.

The settlement is arguably a victory for the conservative students. As part of the agreement, UC Berkeley will change its policy regarding campus speaking events and pay $70,000 to the conservative student groups for their attorney fees. The lawsuit came in the aftermath of the campus? decision to cancel scheduled speeches by pundits including Ann Coulter. The university claimed at the time that the cost of security was too high to allow the events to go on as planned.
?YAF?s landmark victory for free expression?long squelched by Berkeley?s scheming administrators who weaponized flawed policies to target conservatives?shows that the battle for freedom undertaken by YAF on campuses nationwide is a necessary one,? Brown added.

Lieu: ?Would Love? to Regulate Speech, But ?First Amendment Prevents Me?
13 Dec 2018

Wednesday on CNN, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said he ?would love? to be able to regulate free speech, but lamented the First Amendment is preventing him.

?I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech,? Lieu stated. ?The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that?s simply a function of the First Amendment. But I think over the long run, it?s better that government does not regulate the content of speech.?

Lieu then added that private companies should better regulate speech themselves.

My congressman, Ted Lieu, is a partisan hack

By Elise Cooper

Ted Lieu is a Democrat congressman from Los Angeles, California.  When he was first elected in 2014, he seemed pretty reasonable with his views.  Chosen to replace Democratic Party leader Rep. Henry Waxman, it is not surprising that he was, at a minimum, left of center.  But his recent actions have shown that there are no longer any moderate Democrats left, at least in California.  In a recent town hall conference call, he made outrageous and non-factual statements only an extremist could make. Here is a look at some of his comments and my take on why he is so wrong.

To start, he did not consider all his constituents, or the Constitution, when he opted to join 66 other Democratic congressional representatives who boycotted President Trump's inauguration.  It is sad that he did not have the same attitude as President Obama, who declared: "It is no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences.  We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country."

By his petty sit-out alone, it is obvious that Congressman Lieu is a divider, not a uniter.

Next, he stated several times that Trump is "a president who lies pathologically.  This is how authoritarian regimes get started."

How sad that he never spoke out when the leader of his own party, then-president Obama, lied to the American people numerous times regarding the Operation Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, the Benghazi attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound, the IRS scandal targeting dissidents, and Obamacare. On the latter, maybe Lieu should remember the famous words of President Obama: "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it," not to mention your own doctor.  Obama and his administration claimed the Benghazi attack was due to a video rather than a premeditated terrorist attack.  The IRS scandal, meanwhile, as he told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, had "not even a smidgen of corruption."  This despite the fact that Tea Party members were audited ten times more often than regular Americans.  As for Fast and Furious, President Obama's comments earned three Pinocchios from the Washington Post.

When asked about President Trump's mental state, Lieu's response continued the same divisive, dishonest pattern.  At the town hall, he told voters:

    This is a great question.  We are looking into that issue. ... Isn't it about time there is a White House psychiatrist since the presidency is such a demanding job.  Now we do have a president that has a disconnection of the truth, and this is highly troubling.  It is an issue we are researching and investigating[.] ... The administration gets crazier by the week.

Why didn't Lieu wonder about President Obama's mental competency?  There were questions about this former president's mental state when a renowned expert on narcissism, Dr. Sam Vaknin, noted how Obama's language, posture, and demeanor, as well as the testimonies of his closest friends, suggested that he either is a narcissist or may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

Police: Illegal Alien Suspected of Killing Officer Day After Christmas

The Newman Police Department and Stanislaus County Sheriff?s Department are searching for an illegal alien accused of murdering a California police officer a day after Christmas.

Newman, California Corporal Ronil Singh, 33-years-old, was shot and killed by the illegal alien suspect, whose name has not been released by law enforcement officials.

According to law enforcement, Singh stopped the illegal alien during a routine traffic stop to check if the suspect was driving drunk in the city of Newman, about 100 miles out of San Francisco.

Singh leaves behind his wife, Anamika, and his five-month-old son.

Singh?s death is the latest high-profile killing by a suspect who is in the U.S. illegally. Last week, Breitbart News reported on the death of California resident Rocky Jones, who was shot and killed by an illegal alien. Similarly, an illegal alien has been charged with the murder of a 16-year-old New Jersey girl.

?This suspect is in our country illegally. He doesn?t belong here. He is a criminal,? Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson, whose agency is leading the investigation, told reporters.

Homeless in California?what the data reveals
By Victoria Cabales | June 27, 2018 | HOUSING, POVERTY

California is struggling to confront its homelessness crisis: After big-city mayors up and down the state lobbied hard for more funding, state leaders agreed to spend an additional $600 million this month to help fight the problem.

How many Californians are homeless now, and how has that changed over time?

While it?s tough to say precisely how many Californians are experiencing homelessness, the federal Housing and Urban Development Department estimates the number statewide at 130,000 on a given night. That?s 25 percent of the entire nation?s homeless population. Since 2016, California experienced a larger increase in homelessness than any other state.
California has the highest percentage of unsheltered homeless individuals in the country, at slightly under 70 percent. This means that the vast majority of the state?s homeless population does not utilize temporary living arrangements provided by either charitable organizations or government programs. Rather, they have been found living on the streets, parks, or other places not meant for human habitation.
The majority of California?s unsheltered homeless population is chronically homeless, meaning that they have been homeless for a year or more or have experienced at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years. Chronically homeless individuals are marked by serious mental or physical illnesses.

NY Times: ?40-Year? Flood of Immigration Turns Orange County Blue
2 Jan 2019
John Binder

The New York Times admits a ?40-year rise in the number of immigrants? living in Orange County, California has transformed the region from a ?fortress of conservative Republicanism? to a Democrat electoral sweep.

The Times notes in a piece titled ?In Orange County, a Republican Fortress Turns Democratic? that the rapid demographic changes of the county ? which now has a more than 30 percent foreign-born population ? has swiftly handed the region over to Democrats.

Breitbart News reported that Orange County?s booming foreign-born populations of mostly Asian immigrants and migrants from Central America coincided with Democrats sweeping the midterm elections in an area that gave birth to President Richard Nixon.

The Times now acknowledges the demographic changes are at least partially responsible for the diminishing Republican representation in Orange County:

    There was a steady decrease in white voters in the seven congressional districts that are in and around Orange County between 1980 and 2017, according to census data. In 1980, whites made up 75 percent of the population in the district where Mr. Cisneros won. By 2017, that number dropped to 30 percent. [Emphasis added]

    The county?s immigrant population grew five times as fast as the general population between 1980 and 2000, and while the pace of immigration has slowed, the Latino and Asian populations continues to increase, driven by the children of immigrant families born in the United States. [Emphasis added]


    ?You went from a solid Republican county to one in which Republicans were just barely the majority, and it fell pretty quickly in the past two years,? said Ms. Godwin. ?You have had continued demographic changes. This is a county that went from majority-white to having a majority that are Latino and Asian-American. So that has gone hand-in-hand ? particularly with the rising Asian-American population ? to voting more Democratic.? [Emphasis added]

City of Sacramento announces the first in a series of game changing demonstration initiatives that will drive forward the City as a thriving diverse community that leverages new technologies to improve quality of life for all. This new innovative pilot with Verizon will be among the first in the nation to deliver super high speed wireless connectivity to the internet for Sacramento residents. Verizon will begin offering 5G to pilot customers in the City of Sacramento during the first half of 2017. Verizon will also be running pilots in the following metropolitan areas: Ann Arbor, Atlanta, Bernardsville (NJ), Brockton (MA), Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, Sacramento, Seattle and Washington, D.C. This is an important step in providing gigabit broadband service to homes and offices via a wireless 5G connection.

This pilot is part of a much broader push by the City to develop policy and streamlined processes to leverage emerging technologies and create public-private partnerships to help provide services more efficiently, meet community needs, and reduce resource consumption. Early initiatives such as this show the potential for public-private partnership to foster key quality of life improvements across sectors. The City recognizes that it alone cannot solve all the problems of the City in isolation, the City seeks to work with outside innovators like Verizon and other external entities for the purpose of rapid deployment that maximizes strategic value to the community.

Newsom Comes Out Swinging On Day One For Single-Payer, Immigrant Coverage
By Samantha Young and Anna Gorman and Ana B. Ibarra   
January 8, 2019

SACRAMENTO, Calif. ? Within hours of assuming office Monday, Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a defiant challenge to the Trump administration with sweeping plans to expand health coverage to more Californians, pushing for a single-payer system and insurance for undocumented young adult immigrants.

He also called for new state-funded subsidies to help people afford health insurance, coupled with a requirement that all Californians have health insurance. And he signed an executive order that directs state agencies to work together to negotiate prescription drug prices
Newsom?s out-of-the-gate move on single-payer reflects a clear shift from his predecessor, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who had described the ambitious proposal ? which could cost an estimated $400 billion annually ? as financially impossible.


Newsom said his budget, scheduled to be released Thursday, will set aside state funding to expand Medi-Cal, California?s version of the federal Medicaid program for low-income people, to eligible adults up to age 26. That would make California the first state to provide full Medicaid benefits to unauthorized immigrant adults.

In 2016, California opened Medi-Cal to all kids up to age 19, regardless of their immigration status. Since then, more than 250,000 children have enrolled.

?San Francisco is the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America, very proud of that, and we proved it can be done without bankrupting in the city,? he said. ?I?d like to see that we can extend that to the rest of the state.?
?That process can be done without a bill,? he explained. ?That process should be done by the next governor and I?m committed to it for no other reason than health care is devouring our budget. Healthcare in this state is the biggest driver of unfunded retirement benefits. It?s a driver of a lot of our costs.?

Dem Donor gets the kid glove treatment ... ..
2 deaths at Ed Buck?s home and West Hollywood is asking agonizing questions about race and class
 By Hailey Branson-Potts, Matt Hamilton and Richard Winton
Jan 09, 2019

Residents of a two-story Laurel Avenue apartment complex in West Hollywood stood on the building?s front porch as dozens of protesters shouted at them.

The residents were mostly white. The protesters were mostly black.

What brought them together in a heated scene Monday night was the troubling, baffling and, for some, deeply infuriating case of longtime Democratic political donor Ed Buck, whose apartment in the building has been the scene of two black men?s apparent overdose deaths in the last two years.

Some protesters turned on Buck?s neighbors, accusing them of being complicit. The neighbors said they were blaming the wrong people.

?If a black man was living there, you wouldn?t be OK with it!? one of the protesters shouted.

Los Angeles County sheriff?s homicide detectives are investigating the death of a 55-year-old man whose body was found just after 1 a.m. Monday in the apartment of Buck, a onetime West Hollywood City Council candidate and well-known figure in LGBTQ political circles. The man, whose name has not been released, died of an apparent overdose, according to Buck?s attorney, Seymour Amster.

Buck, a 64-year-old white man, previously was investigated for the July 2017 death of Gemmel Moore, 26, who died of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck?s apartment, which was littered with drug paraphernalia, according to a Los Angeles County coroner?s report. Prosecutors this summer declined to file charges.


?It says a lot about the dark underbelly of gay culture and West Hollywood,? said Steve Martin, a former West Hollywood city councilman who is gay. ?We always are slapping ourselves on the back about how open-minded and diverse we are, and frankly the residents know that?s not always the case. When an incident like this comes up, it makes us confront a lot of issues that are really uncomfortable.?

Some 46% of West Hollywood residents identify as LGBTQ, according to community surveys. The city is 80% white.

"Wichita Lineman" is a song written by American songwriter Jimmy Webb in 1968. It was first recorded by Glen Campbell and widely covered by other artists. Campbell's version, which appeared on his 1968 album of the same name, reached #3 on the U.S. pop chart, remaining in the Top 100 for 15 weeks. In addition, the song also topped the American country music chart for two weeks, and the adult contemporary chart for six weeks. It was certified gold by the RIAA in January 1969. Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" ranked "Wichita Lineman" at #192. It has been referred to as "the first existential country song". Music journalist Stuart Maconie called it "the greatest pop song ever composed" and the BBC referred to it as "one of those rare songs that seems somehow to exist in a world of its own -- not just timeless but ultimately outside of modern music".

PG&E Bankruptcy Tests Who Will Pay for California Wildfires
By Ivan Penn, Thomas Fuller and Lisa Friedman
   Jan. 14, 2019

LOS ANGELES ? Pacific Gas and Electric said on Monday that it would seek bankruptcy protection as ?the only viable option? as the giant California utility faces billions of dollars in liability claims from two years of deadly wildfires.

Experts said PG&E?s predicament could be an early indicator of a wider economic toll from climate change, which is making wildfires more frequent and destructive. At the same time, the financial straits could handicap the utility?s ability to step up the kind of preventive measures it has been faulted for neglecting, like trimming trees and brush around power lines and transformers.

For Gov. Gavin Newsom, who took office last week, the bankruptcy disrupts an agenda that until now had focused on early childhood education, paid parental leave and the expansion of the state?s health care program to cover more undocumented residents.
Fire investigators determined PG&E to be the cause of at least 17 of 21 major Northern California fires in 2017. It is also suspected in some of the 2018 wildfires that have been described as the worst in state history, including one that killed at least 86 people and destroyed the town of Paradise.

PG&E said it faced an estimated $30 billion liability for damages from the two years of wildfires, a sum that would exceed its insurance and assets. The bankruptcy announcement, in a filing with federal regulators, led the company?s shares to plunge more than 50 percent.
5 Paradise Families Sue PG&E Over California's Camp Fire
Corrected, Dec. 12., 3:05p.m. ET

Following the devastating Camp Fire that broke numerous California wildfire records and pretty much burned the entire town of Paradise to the ground, 35 families from Paradise are now suing energy company Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E).

In a lawsuit filed in Butte County Superior Court, the plaintiffs allege inadequate maintenance of power equipment caused the Camp Fire and are asking PG&E to cover unspecified losses, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

State fire inspectors have not yet ruled on a cause in the Camp Fire, but the day before the Camp Fire ignited on Nov. 8, PG&E emailed a customer about ?problems with sparks? and asked for permission to access her property. In response to Fortune, a PG&E spokesperson provided this statement:

Who names their daughter Geisha ?
The most literal translation of geisha into English would be "artist", "performing artist", or "artisan". Another name for geisha is Geiko (芸妓), which translates specifically as "Woman of Art".

Contrary to popular belief, Geisha are not the Eastern equivalent of a prostitute; a misconception originating in the West due to interactions with Oiran Japanese courtesans, whose traditional attire is similar to that of geisha.

PG&E Chief Executive Geisha Williams leaves as utility readies for possible bankruptcy

Jan 13, 2019 | 9:30 PM

The largest wildfire in state history claimed another victim on Sunday: one of the most powerful women in corporate America.

Geisha Williams, chief executive of PG&E Corp., stepped down from the troubled San Francisco-based company, which is on the brink of bankruptcy due to tens of billions of dollars of damages it could be forced to pay.

Williams, 57, has run the company since March 2017, during which time PG&E has faced a string of both natural and self-inflicted blows that have marred the utility?s reputation and financial health.

California ponders state takeover of PG&E
But CPUC is also considering many other paths for the troubled utility, including breaking it up

A year of near-constant bad news continues for Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E)?the SF-based utility that services most of California?as state regulators announced last week they?re considering an array of eyebrow-raising reforms that may include breaking up the company or transforming it into a public entity instead.

The California Public Utilities Commission [CPUC] handed down a ruling Friday that in the coming months it will ?examine PG&E?s current corporate governance, management, and structure to determine the best path forward for Northern Californians to receive safe energy service.?

While that may sound dry and somewhat opaque, the details of what that process may mean are potentially game-changing:
... should some or all of PG&E be reconstituted as a publicly owned utility or utilities?

The possibilities of breaking up PG&E or turning it into a public utility would have the most sweeping effect on the company and state. PG&E presently operates as a regulated monopoly.

"Mad Max-ine", "Socialist Sandy" Will Lead House Probe Into Trump's Relationship With Deutsche Bank

Now firmly in control of the House, the Democrats are trying to figure out exactly how they will proceed with the myriad investigations they have promised into potential conflicts of interest pertaining to Trump's business dealings (among other things). And apparently, the president's lending relationship with scandal-plagued Deutsche Bank - one of the few banks willing to lend to the Trump Organization over the past decade - could be a jumping off point.

According to Reuters, after pushing to subpoena records from the troubled German lender pertaining to its business relationship with Trump back when she was the committee's ranking member back in 2017, "Mad Maxine" (now backed by "Socialist Sandy") is preparing to renew her efforts - and this time, Republicans are no longer in a position to stop her from demanding records that the bank had previously argued were shielded by client confidentiality laws.

PG&E Shares Surges, Are Halted After Company Cleared In Deadliest 2017 Wildfire

In a surprising development that could trigger a rebound in the badly battered shares of America's largest utility, California investigators have cleared utility PG&E of involvement in the 2017 Tubbs fire, the second-most destructive fire in California history, which broke out in wine country in October 2017.

Shares were halted on the news that investigators found that the catalyst for the fire was a private electrical system adjacent to a "residential structure."

Harris was 30 years Brown's junior when the two were dating, approximately half his age at the time.

"Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker," writes Brown, adding "And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco."

Former San Francisco Mayor and Speaker of the California State Assembly Willie Brown claimed to have "influenced" the career of US Sen. Kamala Harris with political appointments while the two were having an extramarital affair, Brown admits in a short article in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Singing in the rain: Hunters Point Shipyard enriches SFs most powerful families

Dianne Feinsteins Mansion

A chronology of legal, ethical and regulatory oversight violations involving the transfer and development of Parcel A of the Hunters Point Shipyard with investigatory follow up 2002-2009
by Ahimsa Porter Sumchai, M.D.

"No public official at any level of state or local government shall make, participate in making or in any way attempt to use his official position to influence a government decision in which he knows or has reason to know he has a financial interest." California Government Code Section 81002(c)

Nepotism is defined by Webster?s dictionary as political favoritism based on family relationships. In an email to the San Francisco Bay View, Laurence Pelosi verified that he was a Lennar senior executive in March of 2004 at the time San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, his cousin for whom he had served as mayoral campaign treasurer, had signed the Hunters Point Shipyard Conveyance Agreement at the behest of Laurence?s Aunt Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.


Laurence Pelosi is the son of Ronald Pelosi and Belinda Barbara Newsom. He is Nancy Pelosi?s nephew by marriage.

Laurence Pelosi was identified as the vice president of naval base acquisitions for Lennar in a program he participated in concerning the master plan for development of the southeast community held at Mission Bay in 2006.


Newsom, as chief executive officer of the City and County of San Francisco, took what is clearly a discretionary action by entering into the Conveyance Agreement for the Hunters Point Shipyard with the U.S. Navy. The Conveyance Agreement set a specific timetable for giving the City a portion of the shipyard ? Parcel A ? as well as giving commercial development rights to Lennar/BVHP, a limited liability private, non-governmental corporation.


In February of 2005, U.S. Attorney Andrew Cheng received documentation of violations of federal law involving Rep. Pelosi and Sen. Feinstein, whose husband, Richard Blum, has a financial interest in Catellus Developers, the master developer for the UCSF Mission Bay Campus, Lennar Corp. and numerous Bayview Hunters Point community non-profits.

Feinstein resigned from a seat on the U.S. Senate Military Construction Appropriations Committee due to conflicts of interest complaints involving her husband and has reportedly been investigated by the FBI, according to a former writer for the San Francisco Bay Guardian.

In January of 2007 Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Her first act was a failed attempt to install Rep. John Murtha as the House majority whip in exchange for his help in the transfer of shipyard Parcel A

By November of 2008, Lennar was facing imminent bankruptcy after spending over $5 million ? or $50 per vote ? to pass Proposition G, a measure designed to gain support of the San Francisco electorate for the Shipyard-Candlestick Park Conceptual Plan and its transfers of state and federal lands.

Lennar?s LEN stocks sank to $3.60 per share despite restructuring and partnership with CB Richard Ellis, headed by Richard Blum, husband of Senior Sen. Dianne Feinstein, principle sponsor of the Lennar-funded Proposition G campaign.

Belinda Barbara Newsom dies at 73
By Julian Guthrie Published 4:00 am PST, Monday, November 24, 2008

Belinda Barbara Newsom, who was born into one politically prominent Bay Area family and married into another, died Saturday at her home in San Francisco at the age of 73.  ...

Ms. Newsom, who went by Barbara and whose married name was Pelosi, was the sister-in-law of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the aunt of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. In her own political right, President Jimmy Carter appointed her in 1980 to represent the United States at the United Nations.
A fourth-generation San Franciscan born into a large Irish Catholic family, Ms. Newsom grew up listening to her father, William Newsom, talk politics and campaign strategy with close friend Edmund G. "Pat" Brown who became California's governor in 1959. Her father also worked on President Harry Truman's 1948 election campaign.

Ms. Newsom is survived by her brothers, Bill Newsom of Dutch Flat (Placer County) and Brennan Newsom of San Francisco; sons Brennan Pelosi of Berkeley, Matt Pelosi of San Francisco, and Laurence Pelosi of Oakland; and four grandchildren.

Watch: Protesters at California Community College Mock Woman as She Recites Pledge of Allegiance

29 Jan 2019

Celeste Barber fought back when Santa Barbara Community College (SBCC) banned the Pledge of Allegiance from its public meetings by reciting it at a meeting last week where she was mocked to the point of tears.

SBCC Board of Trustees President Robert Miller recently removed the pledge from public meeting agendas and when Barber wrote an email objecting, Miller responded with a scathing rebuke of the American tradition of honoring flag and country because it ?has a history steeped in expressions of nativism and white nationalism? and referred to another who described it as expressing ?bigotry.?

In an email to Barber, provided to Breitbart News, Miller allegedly wrote, in part:

    I decided to discontinue use of the Pledge of Allegiance for reasons related to its history and symbolism.  Our flag is a powerful symbol of freedom and our system of government, but I prefer to pledge allegiance to our constitution, instead of a physical object. Indeed, when sworn in, each Trustee takes an oath to support and defend the U.S. and California constitutions.

    I also object to the phrase ?one nation under God.? The First Amendment not only protects freedom of speech and religion, it also expressly prohibits laws that establish a religion. The U.S. Supreme Court has expressly extended those rights to those who express no belief in God. Thus, I disagree with the 1955 act of Congress to add this phrase to the Pledge of Allegiance.


?I?m here to speak about the board president?s decision to discontinue the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance at Trustees public meetings,? said Barber, who is a former English professor at the school. ?When you recite the Pledge of Allegiance you are recommitting your oath to uphold and defend our country?s Constitution.?

She also shared stories of living ?behind the Soviet bloc? and of her father?s military service.

Barber was repeatedly interrupted as people in the audience and protesters yelled out ?racist? and ?the founding fathers had slaves.?

Undeterred, Barber recited the pledge with a small flag she brought as the crowd mocked her to the point of tears.

After Barber completed the pledge, the video shows student protesters ? at the meeting for an unrelated cause ? were standing behind the board members, kneeling while Barber spoke.

California?s High-Speed Rail Failure Shows the Insanity of Green New Deal
David Ditch / @davidaditch / February 12, 2019

Even California can?t apparently support high-speed rail.

Just a few hundred miles of high-speed rail in California was well on its way to exceeding $100 billion in costs by the time of completion. As a result, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that the state will be massively shrinking the project.

?Let?s be real,? Newsom, a Democrat
said, per The Sacramento Bee. ?The current project, as planned, would cost too much and take too long.?

The timing could not have been worse for ambitious central planners in Washington, D.C.

And here's the USA Today propaganda  take ...
High-speed rail could still be a reality in California ? and elsewhere, proponents say
Published 6:02 p.m. ET Feb. 13, 2019 | Updated 9:50 p.m. ET Feb. 13, 2019

LOS ANGELES ? California could still bring the nation's first high-speed rail train to reality, proponents say ? even if the size falls short of the original grand plans ? and that could encourage other states to follow suit. 

A day after Gov. Gavin Newsom announced he would scale back plans for a bullet train connecting San Francisco and Los Angeles, backers Wednesday focused on a smaller segment being built and said that gave them cause for hope.

High-speed rail could still be a reality in California ? and elsewhere, proponents say

Newsom, who took office last month, said Tuesday that extending the rail line to San Francisco and Los Angeles ? which are about 400 miles apart ? would, at $77 billion, "cost too much and, respectfully, take too long." Instead, he said he wanted to complete a shorter segment already under construction across the state's Central Valley.

He followed up with a tweet that indicated he is committed to the completed line over the long term.

Critics of the project have cited costs and other issues. State Auditor Elaine Howle released a scathing audit on the rail's overall mismanagement. Rushed construction and poor management cost the rail authority $600 million in budget overruns, according to the audit. The 87-page audit also found that the authority's decision to start construction in 2013, before it had secured necessary property and utility clearances, contributed to the overruns


High-speed rail surfaced again this month as an element in the Green New Deal proposal from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.,
and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., a plan targeting climate change that came under immediate fire from conservatives.
