State Sponsored Euthanasia… We Have Arrived at the Slippery Slope

First, they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. Pastor Martin Niemöller – January 1946

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary euthanasia, is a word that comes to us from the Greek term meaning “easy death.” It’s not however, a word widely used by advocates of the “Death with Dignity” movement. They like to use more soothing words in the titles of their organizations like Compassion & Choices, Final Exit Network, Dignity in Dying, Dignitas, and Exit to name a few.

On the way to making society comfortable with the concept of “Death with Dignity”, there are reasons supporters avoid incorporating the term “euthanasia” in their quest for legalization. Foremost would be the inclusion of the words “…the act or practice of killing…” in the dictionary definition.… Read More

State Bar investigated grade changing at online law school run by Orange County school board official

An online law school with ties to Orange County school board trustee David L. Boyd was criticized by the State Bar for changing the grades of failing students so that they would be eligible to take the nation’s toughest bar exam while continuing to receive federal student aid.

Students with failing grades are ineligible to take the exam and also cannot receive federal student loans. Since 2008, Taft students have received more than $14 million in tax funded student loans, according to the US Department of Education.

The 2016 investigation ended with no action required, though a school official said it had introduced review programs to help students prepare for the required First Year Law Student’s Exam (also known as the Baby Bar) and the General Bar. The official also told the state investigator that students who failed a class in year two of the program would in the future be placed in an… Read More

Is CA Senate Rigging Report In Harassment Probe of Sen. Tony Mendoza?

Senior Senate staff say Sen. President Pro Tem Kevin DeLeon still actively helping former roommate Mendoza keep his paycheck

In an exclusive interview to the Flash Report, a California State Senate senior staffer revealed a behind-the-scenes plot to save, or at least continue the Senate paycheck of Democrat Senator Tony Mendoza (Artesia), who in multiple media reports and news articles is alleged to be a serial sexual harasser of women in his own Senate office.

The Senate staffer, who has worked several years in the Legislature under multiple leaders, requested anonymity for fear of workplace reprisals.

Additionally, it was reported Thursday that Sen. Mendoza and a constituent filed a lawsuit against the California… Read More

Debts & Deficits Putting Our Future At Risk

A lot of ink is being spilled talking about the US debt – which has surpassed $20 Trillion. But the debt problem isn’t just national.

California’s debt has climbed to over $425 Billion – and if you include local unfunded pension & debt liability, we face a $1.3 Trillion debt – over half of the entire GDP of the state. According to USdebtClock.org, California is accumulating $100 Billion more debt every year.

That is more debt than many countries. California’s debt is twice as much as Switzerland, who’s national debt stands at $670 Billion; and about the same as Mexico ($1.4 Trillion) and Australia ($1.3 Trillion). And that does… Read More

Commercial vs. Residential Property Taxes Under Prop 13

There are some MAJOR misconceptions about the effect of Proposition 13 on commercial property taxes. Below are some revealing facts, exposing several liberal canards in this area. And these facts are provided by the California State Legislative Analyst’s Office — an unimpeachable source.

But first, some background:

***

Perhaps the most important proposition on the November ballot will be the Left’s strongest attempt yet to gut Prop 13. They will employ a “divide and conquer” strategy. Prop 13 has withstood attacks because of an uneasy alliance between the business and homeowner constituencies. If the progressives can break this alliance, Prop 13 will go down in flames.

The first phase is to get everyone mad at evil businesses (aren’t ALL businesses evil?). The Big Government advocates will dwell on a couple unfair strategies used to avoid commercial property reassessment — a strategy that is used in a tiny fraction of commercial real estate transactions. But rather that fix this “loophole,” the NovemberRead More

And a lobbyist,… Read More

The triple California whammy of the stock market drop

Most of us are less wealthy than last week. The stock market and crypto-currencies took dramatic tumbles. But it’s actually a triple whammy — especially for Californians. Not only did our investments, IRA’s and 401k’s take a belly punch. The drop in equity values means that our mandatory obligation to our CA state and local public servants jumped as well, as the unfunded pension obligation just soared higher. And then there’s that coming CA capital gains tax shortfall. Only our risk-free public employees are pretty much unconcerned about economic downturns. Because the government worker pensions are guaranteed, the hapless taxpayers will simply have to write bigger checks to make up the bigger shortfall. And to add pain to suffering, a stock market downturn translates in into lower capital gains on tax returns. Few realize that the MAJOR reason we have a CA “budget surplus” (ignoring theMadoff-type accounting used) has been the flood of capital gains tax revenue into state coffers fueled largely by our rising stock … Read More

California Sh*thole: Leftist Politicians Playing Politics With CA Businesses

For many years I have written about the horrendous challenges California business owners face because of legislatively-imposed environmental regulations, business-killing regulations and labor laws, hostile politicians and city councils, and government-sanctioned labor union attacks on non-union businesses. Few politicians have ever run a business or owned a business, and even fewer appreciate what it takes to grow a business.

Whether it is Gerawan Farming fighting the corrupted California Agriculture Labor Relations Board and United Farm Workers labor union thugs attempting to take over, or Magliteflashlight inventor and company owner Anthony Maglica, who has been in a battle with the State of California over the “Made in the USA” label on his flashlight packaging (exclusively made in California), these and other businesses and employers are under constant siege by the state and local politicians over business… Read More
