California State Sen. Janet Nguyen Removed From Senate Floor for Voicing Differing Opinion

Feb 23, 2017 — Katy Grimes

California State Sen. Janet Nguyen (R-Garden Grove), was forcibly removed from the Senate Thursday morning for offering a different perspective on the late Sen. Tom Hayden, a Democrat with a well-known and lengthy history of communist sympathies.

The perspective Sen. Nguyen offers is first hand. Her family escaped communist Vietnam and came to the United States in search of freedom in 1981 during Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

Where in the World is Gov. Jerry Brown?

The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.Dwight D. Eisenhower

California is in a crisis. Actually, California has many crises taking place, including a crisis of leadership. This lack of leadership has led to glaring misplaced priorities, and now, a crisis of tremendous proportions of aging and severely damaged infrastructure.

Former President Obama and his Paid Thugs Trying to Topple Trump

Feb 21, 2017 — Katy Grimes

The violent thugs who disrupted Rep. Tom McClintock’s recent town hall meeting in Roseville, CA were clearly organized and had a plan. There was nothing organic about that town hall riot, or any of the other town hall meetings held by Congressional Republicans around the country, ending in violent protests.

“From California to Florida, liberal activists are bringing the fight to the doorsteps of GOP lawmakers, marching on the streets of their hometowns and making legislators’ lives miserable as they attend meetings and town halls with constituents,” The Hill recently wrote. “Hundreds of protesters lined the streets of downtown Janesville, Wis., on Saturday—just blocks from the home of Speaker Paul Ryan (R)—to protest President Trump’s executive order on immigration.”

There is a playbook for this: It’s called Indivisible: A practical guide for resisting the Trump Agenda. Written by former congressional staffers who watched the rise of the Tea Party, they have launched an aggressive assault promoting a radical progressive agenda intent on crushing the Trump Administration and the United States of America.

CA Dams Crumble While Politicians Fiddle in Nonsense

Feb 15, 2017 — Katy Grimes

California Legislators and Gov. Jerry Brown think their job is to stay in power, and that bills to further their leftist agenda are the vehicles. The Oroville Dam spillway breakage is proof of this.

While Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative Democrats have prioritized illegal aliens, refugee, inmate sex change operations, building houses for the homeless, transgender bathrooms, climate change awareness, and hiring Eric Holder to undermine the Trump administration, the Oroville Dam was crumbling. And they knew it. The San Jose Mercury News reported the California Department of Water Resources and 27 water agencies ignored serious warnings 12 years ago because they did not want to incur the extra costs. So they said the repairs were unnecessary.

Sacramento Bee Fishwives Troll Rep. Tom McClintock. Again

Feb 12, 2017 — Katy Grimes

The harpy fishwives on the Sacramento Bee editorial board, and shameless editorial boor Dan Morain, wrote an editorial Monday disputing the nature of the protest outside Republican Rep. Tom McClintock’s Townhall meeting held on Saturday in Roseville (”That’s not anarchy, Rep. McClintock, it’s democracy,”Feb. 6, 2017).

McClintock described the large crowd of protestors as “anarchists” who had gathered to “disrupt” his meeting—which is exactly what happened. But the Bee fishwives said, “only if by “anarchists’ you mean ‘neighbors and grandparents.’” The fishwives and especially Morain, have been historically critical of McClintock just for being alive (and conservative), in a way they’ve never been critical of some of the convicted crooks and criminals in the state Legislature or Congress. Their biting editorials, attempting to belittle the Congressman, have only made a mockery of the journalistic “integrity” and “independence” they claim to practice.

California Democrats’ ‘Bullying’ and Flagrant Hypocrisy

Feb 7, 2017 — Katy Grimes

On December 6, 2016 upon the return of the Legislature and newly-elected members, Sen. John Moorlach, R-Costa Mesa, authored Senate Resolution 8, introduced to simply welcome newly-elected President Donald Trump and acknowledge the historical peaceful transition of power. SR8 said the Senate “hopes for the peaceful transition of power in the United States, that the incoming presidency will be a success, and that the president-elect will take his responsibilities seriously to ensure a strong and unified America.”

SR8 was supposed to be presented and voted on at the beginning of the 2017 Senate Session, during the first week of the New Year. But this congenial resolution message was never given a chance.

California Dems Pass Bill to ‘Freeze Out ICE’ Passes Committee

Feb 3, 2017 — Katy Grimes

​In​ ​t​​​he California State Senate​ Monday​,​ ​Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Léon (D-Los Angeles) and fellow Democrats passed Senate Resolution 16, condemning President Donald J. Trump’s recent executive order restricting travel from terror-prone countries and suspending the refugee program.

The text of the resolution declares that Trump’s executive order “desecrates our American values and panders to fears and nativist instincts that have resulted in some of our nation’s most shameful acts.”

Trump’s executive order temporarily halts refugee admissions for 120 days to research and improve the vetting process, and caps refugee admissions at 50,000 for the iscal year 2017. There is no mention of Muslims anywhere in the executive order, which seeks “to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States.” It also restricts travel for 90 days for most entrants from seven terror-prone countries previously identified by the Obama administration.

YUGE Election Fraud in California To Be Investigated

Jan 27, 2017 — Katy Grimes

President Donald Trump announced last evening an investigation into election and voter fraud is coming. “I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” Trump tweeted.

This is music to the ears of many California voters—especially those whose party registrations were changed right before the June Primary, ensuring a Hillary Clinton win over challenger Bernie Sanders. California was a crucial state for both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, but the election was called for Clinton minutes after the polls closed, but before millions of provisional ballot votes were counted.

“What?” you ask, because Democrats insist that fraud during elections is a myth. They claim voter fraud is “virtually non-existent,” buying votes is too difficult and too “legally risky to pull off,” tampering with voting machines is a misnomer because they are often backed up by paper ballots or other means of auditing.

Gov. Jerry Brown Talks; President Donald Trump Does

Jan 25, 2017 — Katy Grimes

While America’s new President Donald Trump was busy signing Executive Orders to boost energy independence and jobs in the United States, California Governor Jerry Brown was busy promising upcoming battles with Republican-controlled Washington, and used his 2017 State of the State address to double down on California’s regressive “progressive” policies.

Fraudulent Protests and Paid Protestors Are Mocking Free Speech

Jan 20, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Across America media outlets are promoting various planned marches, rallies and “protests” for President-elect Donald J. Trump’s inauguration tomorrow.  Project Veritas this week exposed numerous radical groups organizing attacks, planning to incite violence, create transportation shut downs, and commit acts of domestic terrorism during the Deplorable tonight, as well as the Presidential Inauguration tomorrow.

In 2015, I did a series of articles exposing paid protestors in California who appear at protests all over the state, back-to-back, hundreds of miles apart. Only paid protestors could manage such a feat.

In June 2016 I wrote about a rent-a-mobs protesting in violent rallies against candidate Donald Trump in San Jose, California, which turned violent when mobs attacked Trump supporters.

Corrupt California Ag Labor Board Chair Resigns; Gov. Reappoints Crooked Former Chairwoman

Jan 18, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Removing all doubt that the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board is a Marxist tool for unionization, William B. Gould IV, Gov. Jerry Brown‘s appointed Chairman of the board, announced his resignation Friday, in a cranky letter complaining that farm workers don’t want to join the United Farmworkers Union.

Gould’s resignation also proved that he never was an unbiased arbiter of the agency, despite proclaiming his “commitment to the principles of the Agricultural Labor Relations Act of 1975.” The labor Act guarantees farm employees the Agricultural Labor Relations Board “of providing a process for the peaceful and orderly resolution of agricultural labor disputes. The ALRB believes that the resolution of disputes at the earliest stages best serves both labor and growers.”

Gov. Jerry Brown’s Holy War Against Climate Change

Jan 13, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Climate change is California Gov. Jerry Brown’s “crusade,” his jihad, his holy war. Yet Gov. Brown’s climate change and drought policy is flooded with a manic madness - never has his manic obsession with climate change been more evident.

Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job. —Eric Holder

In Part One of this series, we exposed the Chicano Marxist take over of the California legislature and their plans to defy federal immigration laws and expected actions of the incoming Trump administration. Gov. Jerry Brown’s nomination of Xavier Becerra to be California’s next Attorney General was the first of many steps to protect the pervasive lawlessness of the radical left. Becerra has already taken an aggressive and combative stance against President-elect Donald Trump, vowing to fight Trump’s efforts to enforce immigration laws, and even block attempts to deport criminal illegal aliens. Trump’s campaign centered on building a wall along the United States border with Mexico to keep out illegal immigrants, violent gangs, and terrorists posing as immigrants.


Gangs Are Domestic Terrorists

“In East Orange, initiations were completed by murdering someone, for no other reason than to prove to a tremendously cold, tremendously tight brotherhood that you possessed the hardness required to watch their backs.” —Jeff Hobbs

Following a most recent heinous crime in Chicago where four, black 18-year old thugs, two male, two female, kidnapped, tortured and abused a terrified young white man with special needs, the Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said “Kids make stupid mistakes.” These four thugs ran the live video feed of the beatings and torture on Facebook.

Johnson said they had to determine whether or not the kidnapping was “stupid ranting and raving,” by dumb kids, or “just stupidity,” and added, “we don’t have anything concrete to point (toward a hate crime).”

Gov. Brown Appoints Radical Enviro Justice Activists to Public Utilities Commission

Jan 4, 2017 — Katy Grimes

Governor Jerry Brown has just appointed two radical environmental justice activists to the California Public Utilities Commission, replacing two commissioners whose terms expired January 1, 2017.

Awaiting Senate confirmation, are Clifford Rechtschaffen and Martha Guzman Aceves—two Brown insiders with shady records and a history of Environmental Justice. They aren’t unknown; both Guzman Aceves and Rechtschaffen have been exposed prominently in articles on this news site, and several others (links below).

Don’t let the term “Environmental Justice” fool you.  This “justice” is not about protecting poor and low income communities from excess pollutants or toxic materials; it is about environmental extremists’ scheme to spread wealth through government mandates. Remember President Obama’s EPA Region 6 Administrator Al Armendariz on video describing his enforcement of EPA regulations as “crucifying” oil companies?

Memo To Big Media, NeverTrumpers and Leftists: This Is Why Trump Was Elected

Jan 4, 2017 — Katy Grimes

By vilifying Conservatives as sexists, racists, and imbeciles, political, academic, media, and cultural elites—the self-appointed arbiters of acceptable public debate—opened the door to a Trump presidency. And they are in a state of shock.

Political Correctness is used by the left as a weapon to destroy the fabric of American society. However, the leftist attack on speech in America may have ground to a halt with the election of Donald J. Trump as President.

Senator Steinberg’s Liberal Indifference to Waste and Failure

Dec 28, 2016 — Katy Grimes

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg’s political track record is dismal; long on pious preening, and short on what makes a society successful. And if you don’t believe me, just look at where California stands now economically, with Steinberg’s 25 years in political office. Fresh from the State Legislature, Sacramento’s new Mayor, former State Senator Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, announced his plans for making homelessness in Sacramento his priority.  But it appears that no matter the billions progressives spend on the homeless and homelessness, the problem is growing. And in Sacramento with its fancy new $556.6 million price Golden One Center arena, the homeless problem is making the wealthy and privileged uncomfortable when they venture downtown for an event.

Twelve Days of California’s Generic Holiday

Dec 22, 2016 — Katy Grimes

With California dominated by irreverent liberals at every level of government, saying ‘Merry Christmas’ is so awkward. Christmas carols are no longer allowed to be sung in public schools. Christmas plays have been cancelled, and gift exchanges must be generic.

To accommodate this brave new world thinking, may I present the Twelve Days of California’s Generic Holiday, sung to the antiquated Twelve Days of Christmas:

Shut Up and Act: ‘The Perfect Idiot’s Profession’

Dec 20, 2016 — Katy Grimes


The American people have spoken. Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, in a free and fair election (despite cybertampering by DHS…). But ignoramus Hollywood actors are urging members of the Electoral College to select someone other than Donald Trump.

Liberals Belong in Day Care

Dec 14, 2016 — Katy Grimes

It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. ~ Saint Augustine

Liberals abhor competition. Liberals are not only sore losers, they are vile winners. There is no grace or humility in winning or losing, to a liberal.

It doesn’t matter what they fail at, liberals always blame someone else—it’s never their own fault. And when they don’t like outcomes, they throw tantrums and demand that others must change their behavior.
