California Gov. Jerry Brown ‘Exit Interview’ is Classic Jerry

At California Gov. Jerry Brown’s “Exit Interview” Tuesday, the Sacramento Press Club auctioned off autographed souvenirs from his years in the Governor’s office, including cartoons of his budget press conference presentations of charts and graphs, Proposition 30 memorabilia increasing sales and income taxes, and graphs showing state government living within its means. Other charts showed record spending levels.

Gov. Jerry Brown is known for his infrequent and rather unscripted press conferences, often making glib remarks, or quoting Zen Buddhism, Latin theology, philosophy, and “ontology” – the nature of being. Tuesday Brown did not disappoint during his “Exit Interview,” as he prepares to leave the Governor’s office for the last time on Jan. 7.

#MeToo 2020: Sen. Kamala Harris Claims Ignorance Over Long-time Employee Sex Abuse Case
It is no secret that U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris has her eye on a run for the Presidency in 2020. Yet Larry Wallace, a senior staffer for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reportedly resigned on Wednesday over the discovery he was involved in a sexual harassment lawsuit and $400,000 payout to the victim while working for then California Attorney General Kamala Harris. And Kamala Harris claims to know nothing of this.

Sen. Harris’s spokeswoman claims Harris has no knowledge of allegations of sexual harassment against her top aid—a guy she has worked with since the mid 2000s. Despite her leadership roles, Harris has a long history of knowing nothing and blaming others.

California’s ‘Grand Theft Election’

California's 'Grand Theft Election'
On election night, California Republicans were heading for victories. Less than one month later, while ballots are still being counted, half of California’s Republican Congressional races were flipped by Democrat challengers, none of whom have ever held an elected public office.

Republicans lost election night leads for five members of Congress, three state Assembly races, two state Senate seats and a Board of Equalization candidate, Shawn Steel wrote in a column this week.

CA Gov. Elect Gavin Newsom Casting Some Big #MeToo StonesCalifornia Gov. Elect Gavin Newsom is casting some big #MeToo stones forgetting that his house is all glass.

California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman has been accused of sexual harassment and assault. Staffers told the Los Angeles Times that during his time as party chair, Bauman, who is gay, would “regularly make sexually explicit comments in the workplace to men and women, including remarks about sexual acts, his and other staffers’ genitalia, and being sexually attracted to staff members,” CBS Los Angeles reported.

‘New Way California:’ Wrong Way, Deceptive Way

'New Way California:' Wrong Way, Deceptive Way
An odd group of Never-Trump Republican centrists and political has-beens who formed “New Way California” earlier this year, claim New Way is needed because they are “committed to policies that increase opportunities for all Californians.”

What they are committed to is remaining in power, even if that means being subservient to the Democrat Party and leftism. In June I wrote “New Way California is Wrong Way.

California School District Blacklists Popular Farmer’s Historical Reenactments
For nearly 40 years, Jim Riley and his family have lived on their 760-acre apple farm in Oak Glen, California, in San Bernardino County.

Jim and his wife built a Colonial-inspired home on the farm in 1994, and were thinking about doing 18th century dinner theater. Shortly thereafter, the Rileys were approached by parents of local elementary school students asking for historical field trips at the farm. “We started doing American Revolution-themed tours, and Civil War reenactments for 5th graders in Southern California,” Riley said when we talked recently. “Within five years, we were seeing 50,000 students a year, and in the last 17 years, more than 1.2 million students, parents and teachers visited programs on the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the California Gold Rush.”

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Liberal Scorned
Sore Loserman” was the insult directed at 2000 presidential/vice presidential candidates Al Gore and Joe Lieberman, known on the campaign trail as “Gore Lieberman.” After losing to George W. Bush, Gore challenged the handling of the Florida vote counting, resulting in the closest presidential race in the history of the United States. Gore’s appeals for a recount went unheeded, resulting in Republicans all across America placing ‘Sore Loserman’ bumper stickers on cars.

Are CALIF Democrats Also Cheating Their Way to Power?

Are CALIF Democrats Also Cheating Their Way to Power?As American voters are watching the election fraud take place in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties in Florida, are California Democrats also cheating their way to power? Our state certainly isn’t immune from cheating, as evidenced in June 2016, when I was contacted by voters from all across California that their political party designations had been changed. “The electronic vote rigging in California appears to have been designed to keep Bernie supporters from electing him in the primary. And if they can steal an election in California, they can steal the Presidential Election,” I wrote about election fraud reported in California on Primary Election Day June 7th, 2016.

CA Gov. Jerry Brown Vetoed 2016 Wildfire Management Bill While CA Burned

CA Gov. Jerry Brown Vetoed 2016 Wildfire Management Bill While CA Burned
Every governor has signed regretful legislation, or made a disastrous pardon he or she would like a chance to re-do. California’s whacky outgoing Democrat governor has spent the last eight years trying to convince the people of California that we are to blame for droughts, wildfires and “extreme weather,” and that climate change is an existential threat to the California way of life. Showing no regrets, Gov. Jerry Brown calls the people “freeloaders,” and “deniers,” and has mocked our “little green lawns.” Brown even spitefully signed legislation subjecting every man, woman and child to 50 gallons of water a day in the near future… despite the state’s 189,454 miles of rivers, and that large body of water California sits on.

Last year, as California residents were burned out of their towns, homes, neighborhoods, schols, hospitals and businesses, Gov. Jerry Brown was jetting around the world spouting climate change propaganda, and calling the fires California’s “new normal.” Gov. Brown had many chances to sincerely and realistically address California’s increasing wildfires since his election in 2011, but instead chose to play politics, placing his new friends at the United Nations over the people of California.


Madness on the Campus

Isabella Chow
We all know good and evil, right and wrong. Yet, so few today seem willing to make even the smallest sacrifice to stand for good and what is right.

UC Berkeley Student Senator Isabella Chow did, and is paying dearly for it.

I first read of Isabella Chow’s “crime” at Campus Reform, which wrote about her daring to abstain from voting on a symbolic bill that she said would compromise her Christian values. And now more than 1,000 hysterical UC Berkeley students have signed a petition demanding that she resign.

California Blue Wave: Will it Lead to Insolvency Faster?

California Blue Wave: Will it Lead to Insolvency Faster?
The midterm elections have turned out as most observers expected, nationally, statewide, and in Sacramento. By historical standards, nationally, the Democrats underperformed and lost a number of high-profile races. There was no Blue Wave—more like a blue ripple.

However, California is another story, remaining as blue as can be, and headed right into insolvency. In the contest for governor, California voters chose Democratic politician Gavin Newsom over Republican businessman John Cox, who is not a politician.

A Caravan Worth Following: ‘CAUTION: Fraud Ahead’ Tour

Despite the media’s romance with the caravan invasion from Honduras and Mexico headed for the United States border, Jesse Rojas, President of Californians for Accountability PAC, is leading a legal caravan.  Rojas is driving a box truck following the blue tour bus for gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom. Calling it the “Caution: FRAUD AHEAD Tour“ Rojas and company are warning of “Lost jobs and higher taxes.”

Voter’s Take Heed: Gov. Newsom Poised to Make Us All Part Of San Francisco

Welcome to El Sanfransisco!
“Welcome to El Sanfransisco!”

If Gavin Newsom is elected Governor, Californians may end up saying “Welcome to El Sanfransisco!”

San Francisco used to be the gem of the once-Golden State. Today visitors and residents see on the streets squalor, trash, human excrement and urine, used heroin needles, rats, and homeless people. The city is even experiencing Hepatitis outbreaks.

Brandon Straka’s #WalkAway Campaign
The #WalkAway movement is picking up steam as it urges liberals to abandon Democrats.

Thousands of fed up former Democrats and liberals joined Brandon Straka’s #WalkAway Campaign Saturday in Washington D.C. for the new movement’s first national rally.

Straka led a mile-long march of 5,000+ supporters in Washington, D.C., according to Capitol police, as a show of unity just ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Padded Résumé, Big Govt Socialist, Jessica Morse is Unserious House Candidate

Jessica Morse is Unserious House Candidate
“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”Friedrich Nietzsche

It is too bad there is no referee calling fouls and issuing penalties to politicians and candidates who lie. Even today’s political fact checkers aren’t always reliable. So it’s up to voters to sort through the noise.

Particularly noisy is Democrat Jessica Morse, who is running against Republican Rep. Tom McClintock for the U.S. House of Representatives. Morse’s campaign has been fatuous and unserious. Jessica Morse is a study in running a callow campaign, with her troubled relationship with the truth when it comes to her past, her credentials, and an embellished résumé.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
In the 1972 children’s book, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, everything goes wrong for poor Alexander. He wakes up with his chewing gum in his hair, gets stuck in the middle seat of the carpool, loses his-best-friend status during recess, his mom forgot to give him dessert in his lunchbox, and it just gets worse.

The poor Democrats are also having a perpetual Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Warning To Florida Voters: Do You Want To Become California?

Oct 23, 2018 — Katy Grimes

Ron DeSantis
Dear Florida Voters,

Unless you want to turn into high-tax, high crime, heavily regulated, low-freedom California, think carefully about your vote for Governor. I highly recommend Ron DeSantis for Florida Governor.

How did Andrew Gillum, the self-anointed “democratic socialist” candidate for governor of Florida, the most failed mayor in all of Florida win the Democrat nomination? His candidacy is a stunning indictment of how far Left the Democrat Party has devolved.

Gladiatrix or Hysterical Females? Women Have Choices

Gladiatrix or Hysterical Females? Women Have Choices
Recently a friend called me a Gladiatrix because I stand up to evil, corruption and wrongdoing – essentially, the corrupt political majority in California.

I thanked her and told her that it takes one to know one. She’s a conservative radio talk show host who also exposes the radical left, and is a Gladiatrix in her own right.

In stark contrast to being named a Gladiatrix, last week I wrote about the hysterical barking shrews, who attempted to destroy the character of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nominated to the Supreme Court of the United States by President Donald Trump. Thanks to these outrageous women, it is now dangerous to be an American man in the #MeToo era.

Elizabeth Warren New Leader of the #MeSioux Movement!

Elizabeth Warren New Leader of the #MeSioux Movement
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) typifies the Democrat shrieking shrew who is angry all of the time. Warren, who falsified her job application to Harvard claiming she was Cherokee (based on her grandmother telling her she had high cheek bones), played the affirmative action card, and allowed Harvard Law School to call her the school’s only Native American professor.

Newly released DNA test revealed Warren may have 1/1024 Native-American ancestry. Yet she lied about her ancestry to climb the well-paid academic ladder.
