Numbers Show The Deck is Stacked for Republicans in California’s Legislature

Oct 18, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Elected Republicans represent nearly a third of California’s legislators, but are only getting 18 percent of their bills passed, for eventual consideration by Gov. Jerry Brown. This is despite the fact that they represent nearly 40 percent of the voters who cast ballots in the last election. And even worse, Brown so far has only approved about 16.5 percent of Republican bills, while Democrats saw 83.4 percent of their bills signed into law.

A few revealing statistics surrounding the outcomes for 2,550 new bills introduced during the recent 2017 session in the California Legislature point out which party gets to feast, and which can expect leftover crumbs.


The ‘Powertainment’ Industry is Crashing Down

Oct 15, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Hollywood is imploding right before our eyes. The NFL is bleeding fans and advertising dollars. Most daily newspapers have shrunk to the size of a brochure. Evening news has turned into infotainment—less info and news and more ‘tainment.’

The harrowing tale of Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein is all anyone can talk about now, but hundreds, and maybe thousands were sure silent about Weinstein’s sexual exploits over the last two decades. Think of it as the worst kept secret in Hollywood and in liberal Democrat circles.


Jerry Brown’s California: Devastation, Plunder, Economic Failure

Oct 14, 2017 — Katy Grimes

People like me have been explaining for many years that California is an example of leftist policies to avoid, and the poster child state of what not to do unless state suicide is the goal. California has become the Greece of the United States, and is cracking up. But this crack-up isn’t funny, as I cover in my new book co-authored with Jim Lacy, California’s War Against Donald Trump: Who Wins? Who Loses?”

Despite the dire circumstances, the ravenous left in California continues at breakneck speed to implement so many detrimental, dangerous laws and policies, that Jack, the amoral leader in “Lord of the Flies,” would blush. Stranded on an island, this group of schoolboys degenerate into savagery. It sounds like California, doesn’t it?


California Democrats Schooled On Definition of ‘Hate Speech’ At Hearing

Oct 5, 2017 — Katy Grimes

There is a rumor going around the California State Capitol that the Legislature is about to vote on a ban of humor in the state, because every time someone laughs at something funny, it is apparently at the expense of someone else’s feelings.

If this sounds silly, the Senate hearing held Tuesday, ostensibly on “hate speech,” was even more nonsensical.


Judge Smacks Down CA Attorney General For “Misleading” Ballot Initiative LanguageJudge S

Sep 25, 2017 — Katy Grimes

In a stunning court rebuke of the state Attorney General’s Office, a Sacramento Superior Court Judge announced Friday that Xavier Becerra’s title and summary for the Repeal of the Gas Tax initiative is “misleading and is likely to create prejudice against the measure”—and that he’d “do a rewrite himself” to make it clear the measure would repeal Jerry Brown‘s increases gas taxes and vehicle fees.

California Attorney General Becerra’s title placed on the gas-tax repeal reads: “Eliminates recently enacted road repair and transportation funding by repealing revenues dedicated for those purposes.”


SEXUAL REVOLUTIONARIES AND CULTURAL MARXISTS INFILTRATING OUR SCHOOLS

Sep 21, 2017 — Katy Grimes

“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”—G.K. Chesterson

Concerned parents of school-aged children know that sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists are destroying our public schools and universities. But Charter schools were thought to be safe from these dark ideological radicals.

Sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists believe that there are no differences between men and women, and that “male” and “female” are merely social constructs.


Should Some Lawyer-Politicians be Disbarred?

Sep 16, 2017 — Katy Grimes

What recourse do American voters have with elected officials, and especially those who are attorneys, who knowingly pass illegal laws and policies, which violate the Constitution?

California will now offer a third gender option on driver’s licenses and birth certificates for “nonbinary” people who do not identify as male or female under a bill headed to Gov. Jerry Brown.


The California Left’s ‘Reality’ is Anything But

Sep 11, 2017 — Katy Grimes

California is known to the rest of the country as the land of fruits and nuts, and “Commiefornia,” and the Democrats in charge are not letting that reputation go unheeded.

A law that would criminalize the ‘misgendering’ of transgender persons is about to pass the California Legislature, and could result in a fine of up to $1,000 and a year in prison. What perfect timing for this social justice bill since the news of the “intolerant” 6-year-old who accidentally “misgendered” a classmate. Lock her up!

There is no tolerance for dissent or diversity of opinion in California, and certainly no tolerance for the “intolerant.”


Sacramento Appeasers Pay Gang Members To Not Kill People

Sep 8, 2017 — Katy Grimes

“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”Winston Churchill

While President Donald Trump has vowed that United States authorities will “destroy” the gang MS-13 as part of his crackdown on crime, the Sacramento City Council voted unanimously last week to pay gang members $1.5 Million to not kill people.


CA Gov. Jerry Brown’s Failed Shadow Presidency

Sep 7, 2017 — Katy Grimes

While California drowns in debt, its public schools are failing and ranked with some of the lowest reading scores in the country, criminals are being let out of prison and jails and crime is spiking, water is cut off to our farmers, illegal aliens and “refugees” are arriving in droves as Democrats are trying to pass legislation making California a sanctuary state, one dam we know of may still blow apart (who knows about the rest…), bridges are falling down, highways are crumbling, and Democrats flout federal election laws by allowing millions of illegals to vote, Jerry and his corrupt Democrats in the statehouse (and feckless Republicans) are introducing bills at lightning speed to add regulations, massive tax increases, more gun control, restricting more freedoms, all while prattling on about climate change and nuclear war.


SPLC Lables AFA Conference ‘Hate Group’

Aug 25, 2017 — Katy Grimes

SPLC Hate Map

Following the American Freedom Alliance conference Sunday at which I was a speaker, the vile Southern Poverty Law Center published an article this week, “American Freedom Alliance Event Blames Immigrants for California’s ‘Destruction.’”

The American Freedom Alliance’s Sunday morning Los Angeles conference was titled, “From Gold to Dust: The Destruction of California.” While the 2016 conference was focused on radical Islam, this conference topic was California’s excessive regulations and taxation, with panels on education, environmentalism, one immigration panel, regulations and taxation, and one party state issues.


Paying Protesters To Destabilize the U.S.

Aug 18, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Wealthy leftists engage professional grievance hustlers to pay protesters to destabilize and destroy America. And people are standing by watching like a train wreck in slow motion, waiting for someone else to do something.

At anti-Trump protests during the election, protesters admitted they answered ads on Craigslist and were getting paid to protest Trump. The protests are largely paid for by George Soros, MoveOn.org, reclusive billionaire Jonathan Lewis, and pushed by David Brock at Media Matters for America. I’ve been writing about this for several years.


California’s Political Water Scams Back on Ballot

Aug 16, 2017 — Katy Grimes

My 2016 article, Why Can’t California Farmers Get the Water They Need?, exposed Gov. Brown’s shadow government appointees at the State Water Resources Control Board that ordered the release of massive amounts of water from the New Melones Reservoir and Lake Tulloch, to save a dozen fish, and how Gov. Brown systematically booted a number of qualified people off of the California Water Commission, the body that is deciding how to spend $2.7 billion in public funds for Prop. 1 Water Bond water storage projects.

Also revealed was Gerald Meral—a shadowy figure continuously involved in a series of dubious parks, natural resource and water bond ballot initiatives. Meral is also the highly controversial Natural Resources deputy secretary who famously claimed, “BDCP [Bay Delta Conservation Plan ] is not about, and has never been about saving the Delta. The Delta cannot be saved,” as, in April 2013, he directed the BCDP for Gov. Jerry Brown’s effort to build the peripheral Delta tunnels.


‘INCLUSIVE’ DEMOCRATS SPEW HATE

Aug 5, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Immediately following the November 2016 election of Donald J. Trump as President, In Our America yard signs started showing up in predominantly liberal neighborhoods all across America. In my own urban neighborhood in downtown Sacramento, made up of more than 90% Democrat voters, the signs popped up like weeds from yard to yard.

On the Nextdoor app in my city, residents even posted asking where to purchase the signs (in violation of the Nextdoor rules, BTW). I immediately made myself unpopular (as if I care) when I noted that the signs are greatly political and were created by the Portland, Oregon group, Nasty Women Get # Done PDX. Wow. The fur started flying when I pointed out that the Nasty Women support “Black Lives Matter, and I listed several of the feminist causes and groups they support, trying to show how political and one-sided this sign is, including:


California Swamp: CA Democrat House Members Hired Muslim Brotherhood Awan Brothers

Aug 4, 2017 — Katy Grimes

In post—9/11 America, “If you see something, say something” has become the unofficial slogan of the Department of Homeland Security, with the idea of enlisting American citizens to help identify real terrorism threats. Yet California Democrats in Congress apparently ignored this advisory with their silence, support and promotion of possible terrorists in their own workplace.

The Congressional hacking suspects—the Pakistani born Awan brothers—ran the Information Technology (IT) for dozens of Democrat congressmen and women, and could read every email and communication sent or received. Members of the California Democrat House delegation also hired the Awan brothers, along with nearly 30 more House Democrats as a “shared employee,” according to Legistorm.
