California's War Against Its Own Citizens

California is out of control. Not only did our politicians immediately declare war on Donald Trump the moment he was elected, they also declared war on the people of the state.

In our recent book, California’s War Against Donald Trump: Who Wins, Who Loses? my co-author Jim Lacy and I detail California’s decline and how it can rebound.

Kavanaugh Hearings: Hysterical Barking Shrews Must Be Prosecuted
The hysterics the past few weeks has indeed not weathered well on America’s so-called feminists who demonstrated once again that they allow feelings to rule over rational thought and logic, in their devotion of Alinsky “means-to-an-end” tactics.

In their attempt to run SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh out of Dodge by protesting his confirmation hearings, their antics have shown just how ridiculous, nonsensical and preposterous they are.

There’s Nothing Feminine About Lying, Hysterical Left-Wing Women

Oct 3, 2018 — Katy Grimes

Hysterical Left-Wing Women
The #MeToo crowd, also known as “feminists,” have shown they are not rational, nor are they feminine. They are not ladylike, girlish, soft, tender, or effeminate, as is the definition of feminine.

Even more importantly, radical feminists are not on pleasant terms with the truth.

What causes these feminists to be so angry all of the time? I’ve long said their misplaced anger and deranged insanity is attributable to regrets. Every feminist I’ve ever met has had an abortion, led teen and college years full of promiscuity, alcohol and drugs. Mostly white and middle to upper class, educated and spoiled, they rebelled against decent parents, and the “boredom” of living a normal, virtuous life.

California Schools Pushing Racist, LGBT, SJW Agenda on Children
California public schools aren’t your grandfather’s schools any longer. Today’s lesson plans are written by Social Justice Warriors and LGBT activists.

Examples of what’s being taught:

The Santa Barbara Unified School District adopted curriculum from the Institute for Equity in Education, a project of JUST Communities:

DiFi’s Kavanaugh Lie Right Out of Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’

DiFi's Kavanaugh Lie Right Out of Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals'
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has much to be ashamed about in her lengthy political career… but first comes to mind is her reprehensible attempt to prevent Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court… a tactic right out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

No doubt, on behalf of the entire radical Democratic National Committee, Feinstein (D-CA) advanced the 36-year old naked allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, brought by Christine Blasey Ford. Yet DiFi sat on Ford’s letter for 5-6 weeks as Democrats schemed to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

If Gender is ‘Neutral’ In California, Why Mandate More Women on Corporate Boards?

If Gender is 'Neutral' In California, Why Mandate More Women on Corporate Boards?
The California Legislature has passed a bill to require large corporations with base operations in the state to put more female directors on their boards. Democrat Senators Hannah Beth Jackson’s and Toni Atkins’ gender quota bill is illegal, and most definitely a precursor of negative outcomes, as recent history shows.

If Senate Bill 826 is signed into law by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown, publicly traded companies based in the state, and with operations located in other states, will need to have at least one woman on their boards by the end of next year and, on boards of five or more directors, and two or three women by the end of 2021. Companies found violating the law would face fines.

Kamala Harris Covered Up For San Francisco Archdiocese Sex Abuse

Kamala Harris Covered Up For San Francisco Archdiocese Sex Abuse
More than eight years ago in 2010, Kamala Harris, then-San Francisco District Attorney, was running for California Attorney General. And for some reason, her record of covering up sex abuse records belonging to the San Francisco Archdiocese was never part of the political news of her record. Today, Harris is a United States Senator, with an eye for running for President in 2020.

She was San Francisco District Attorney from 2003 until her election in 2010 to State Attorney General.

Just How Low Will Democrats Go?

Just How Low Will Democrats Go?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has once again put her own self interest above the country in a shameless character assignation of United States Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

My dad used to have a phrase to describe just how low someone’s behavior is: “lower than squid sh*t on the bottom of the ocean.” This is just how low Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein has gone with her scheme to halt Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court with a dubious sexual assault complaint from his high school days - 36 years ago.

Climate Change Pimp Gov. Jerry Brown, Ignores Energy Jobs

Defacto leader of The Sky is Falling Chicken Little Party, Gov. Jerry Brown
The doomsday predictions of global-warming alarmists would have us believe there are more droughts, more extreme hurricanes and tornados, that arctic snow caps are melting, and all coastal cities are in danger of rising seas.

Convinced the sky is falling, Henny Penny and a band of gullible friends march off to tell the king, only to meet their end at the hands of a wily fox.“The sky is falling!” Henny Penny said, in a silly tale about a chicken who believes the world is coming to an end.

THE REST OF THE STORY: SacBee Puff Piece On Bishop Jaime Soto

Sep 12, 2018 — Katy Grimes

Sacramento Catholic Diocese Bishop Jaime Soto
A deceptive piece of puff journalism designed to take some of the heat off Sacramento Catholic Diocese Bishop Jaime Soto ran Sunday, written by Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Breton. I’ve been told the Sacramento Catholic Diocese has hired an outside public relations firm—which would explain the Diocesan Sacto Bee propaganda piece.

“Since he became the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento a decade ago, Jaime Soto has chosen to remove priests accused of pedophilia or misconduct,” Breton opined. “This is in contrast to shielding them, as other bishops have in now-infamous cover ups of child abuse being investigated by law enforcement authorities in several states. Soto learned. The question is, has the rest of the church?”

The Fractured Fairy Tale of Stephon Clark

Sep 11, 2018 — Katy Grimes

The Fractured Fairy Tale of Stephon Clark
There was a time not long ago when a personal history mattered; past actions were considered in job offers and in criminal prosecutions. But the liberal left now considers past actions immaterial and irrelevant.
Consider the family of Stephon Clark, the 22-year old black male shot to death by two Sacramento police officers in March after a chase: The family has filed wrongful death claims with the city of Sacramento, seeking up to $35 million for Clark’s death, the Sacramento Bee reported this week. And, the Sacramento Bee also once again reported Clark as an “unarmed 22-year-old black man.”

Stephon Clark’s family looked the other way on his lengthy history of violent, illegal behavior, and now they want $35 million? Can you imagine the private family conversations about filing a lawsuit against the city?

Shameless CA Legislators Pass Bill To Allow Them To Live Outside Their Districts

L.A.'s 272 neighborhoods crime ranking
Just as the 2018 legislative session was winding down last week, California lawmakers sent Gov. Jerry Brown a bill that would allow them to live outside the districts in which they were elected and ostensibly represent.

What’s next? Mayors who don’t have to live in the cities in which they were elected? City council members who do not have to live in their council districts?

On Labor Day, CA Democrats Up To Old Labor Abuses With Gerawan Workers

On Labor Day, CA Democrats Up To Old Labor Abuses With Gerawan Workers
The historic abuse of power the Agricultural Labor Relations Board has exerted over family-owned Gerawan Farming and its thousands of workers is illegal. Gerawan’s farm workers do not want union control of their workplace or work lives, but have been targeted by the United Farm Workers labor union and the ALRB since 2012 for takeover.

In May, the Court of Appeals ordered the state Agricultural Labor Relations Board to count the workers’ decertification votes from a 2013 election, but the agency has ignored the order, and still wants to destroy the ballots and instead force a non-negotiated “contract” on the workers.

$2.3 Million Reasons Bishop Patrick J. McGrath Is Tone Deaf

$2.3 Million Reasons Bishop Patrick J. McGrath Is Tone Deaf
If there isn’t enough anger already directed at abusive Catholic Priests and Bishops over the sexual abuse and cover-up scandals, yet another high ranking elitist Bishop has inflamed the already brittle Catholic laity by choosing to retire to a multi-million dollar home, instead of unpretentious rectory housing as his more humble brethren choose.

If that is not scandalous enough, the San Jose Bishop Patrick J. McGrath, who planned on retiring and moving into a $2.3 million Silicon Valley home, is the same controversial Bishop who told practicing homosexuals in 2017 that they will not be refused Holy Communion or a Christian burial in his diocese, as long as they request them in “good faith.”

Pope Francis Concerned With Climate Change Over Sexual Predator Clergy

Pope Francis Concerned With Climate Change Over Sexual Predator Clergy
Is the Rot Unraveling in the Catholic Church? It appears this may be the case. But Pope Francis refuses to address this rot signifying that he is no leader.

Evil thrives in an environment of permissiveness and appeasement, as we have witnessed in Catholic parishes and dioceses throughout America. However, good priests and bishops who tried to expose the rot were cast aside, accused of mental instability and ruined, and/or laicized.

CNA Accuser of Sen. Anderson Was Arrested For Assault

CNA Accuser of Sen. Anderson Was Arrested For Assault
California State Sen. Joel Anderson (R-El Cajon) was accused last week by Stephanie Roberson, a female lobbyist for the California Nurses Association, a labor union, of threatening to “# slap” her and harassing her at a Capitol-area bar last week, several news outlets reported this week.

Anderson is now facing a legislative investigation by the Senate Rules Committee.

I spoke with Sen. Anderson who tells the story quite differently. Anderson also said the Los Angeles Times did not speak with him.

Appellate Court Ordered CA Governor to Return “Unlawfully Diverted” Subprime Crisis Funds

Appellate Court Ordered CA Governor to Return
Gov. Jerry Brown was recently ordered by the state’s 3rd Appellate District Court to repay more than $331 million in funds the state illegally diverted from a national fund intended to help homeowners struggling with foreclosures from the housing crisis. Instead of complying with the court order, Democrats are pushing through a bill to legitimize the theft of funds.

The Assembly already passedAssembly Bill 1829, which makes the statutory changes related to the National Mortgage justifying this theft.  AB 1829 was passed on a party line in the Senate Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, 12—5, with all Republicans on the committee voting no.

The Evil All Around Us Must Be Eradicated—By Us

The Evil All Around Us Must Be Eradicated--By Us
“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government—in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.”Milton Freidman

Whether the topic is “Democratic Socialism,” or priest sex abuse cases, or top-down corruption in the law enforcement agencies Americans used to trust, there is evil all around us, and it’s permeating society.

Incompetent CA DMV Had 13 Years To Implement Real ID Program

Incompetent CA DMV Had 13 Years To Implement Real ID Program

Those incredibly long lines at California DMVs look more like the release of the iPhone X or ticket sales for Beyonce and JayZ. But they are not. People are stuck in long DMV lines just to renew and update their driver’s licenses.

Yet the notorious California Department of Motor Vehicles is about to be rewarded for its ineptitude and failures by the California Legislature with an unlimited budget.

News outlets throughout the state have written about 4, 6, and even 8+ hour waits since the January implementation of the DMV’s Real ID program

The Unsavory Rot Uncovered In Catholic Dioceses

Aug 16, 2018 — Katy Grimes

Unsavory Rot Uncovered In Catholic Dioceses
Outside of the Catholic Church, high-risk, sexually violent and repeat sex offenders are required to register on sex offender registries for life, and in California are listed on the Megan’s Law public website. Within the Catholic Church, homosexual priests are offered rehabilitation. Pedophile priests are moved to another parish and avoid prosecution. Why should or would Catholic parents send their children into harms way to Catholic schools inside Catholic parishes run by corrupted Bishops?

The explosive news Tuesday that the long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses has finally been released, with horrifying abuses exposed over many decades.
