Radical Weather Underground protests Trump Inauguration

Last week, like thousands of American patriots from all over the country, couple of hundred from California, friends and I attended festivities and celebrations of democracy during the Presidential Inauguration in Washington DC by witnessing the Oath of Office given to our 45th President Donald J. Trump, and Vice President Mike Pence. Most of you, have seen on social media, TV, print news or heard on radio what wen on at our Nation’s capital. To me was an incredible experience, even though I had attended other Inaugurations before, but this one was very special because of the circumstances, negativism, anger that went against our Republican nominee during the entire Presidential campaign, prior to the RNC Convention in Cleveland, OH, in between the November election and throughout his Inauguration.

Now let me share an interesting experience I had, meeting and speaking for almost 20 minutes… Read More

Work, Not Registration, Is Destiny

Did you know that, in 1980, Democrats has 80% higher registration in California, 6.04 million Democrats to 3.94 million Republicans. Today, that registration advantage is 60%, 8.7 million Democrats to 5.04 million Republicans. In 1980, Ronald Reagan received 4.52 million votes, 500,000 more than Republican registration. In 2016, Donald Trump received 4.4 million votes, 550,000 fewer than registration. In 1980, Republicans had an active campaign for President. In 2016, they did not.

In 1984, Republicans pulled 800,000 more than registration, and the number of registered Republicans increased by 800,000. Not only were Republicans winning elections on work and principle, they were winning over the voters, increasing registration at historically greater numbers.

Of course, in 1980, there were only 1.4 million voters other than Democrats or Republicans, today, there are 5.64 million (600,000 more than registered Republicans), but why is that?

Before 1990, Republicans typically outperformed registration. No one can contend that Reagan outperformed registration because he was a moderate. He has defined conservatism for a generation. He also defined what… Read More

FOR TAX RAISER, THE END OF THE DROUGHT IS BAD NEWS

As I write this, it is raining in Sacramento. Pouring, actually. And even though I live about 200 yards from the Sacramento River, I have confidence that the levees within the city limits are in good shape. (As well they should be given that Sacramento’s flood control agency collects millions of dollars from local property owners annually to keep them maintained).

In a word, California is wet. Rain totals and snowpack measurements are the highest we’ve seen in about a decade. But despite the fact that flood gates at major dams throughout the state are now open, levies have been breached and there is serious flooding in both Southern California and the Central Valley, the State Water Resources Control Board refuses to declare the drought over.

As taxpayer advocates in a high tax state, we’re accustomed to seeing a political motivation in most statements coming from government. But this time, we’re not alone. Local water officials gave the State Water Resources Control Board an earful last week about the failure to call the drought over. A representative of the California Water Association, an organization comprised of local water districts, noted that the… Read More

Why I’m opposing Rep. Xavier Becerra for CA Attorney General

I’m opposing Rep. Xavier Becerra’s appointment as California’s Attorney General.

Californians deserve better than a top law enforcement officer who wants to protect illegal alien drunk drivers. As a supporter of sanctuary cities, that’s exactly what Congressman Becerra wants to do.

In last Tuesday’s Assembly Special Committee hearing Congressman Becerra repeatedly told Assemblyman Gallagher to have some beers with him to talk about important issues. He offered the same invitation to Senator Berryhill in yesterday’s Senate Rules Committee hearing.

Congressman Becerra wants California to shield illegal alien drunk drivers from deportation. For someone who sees alcohol as a solution to tough questions, it’s understandable that he doesn’t grasp the serious threat his position poses to public safety. I do understand it, and that’s why I oppose his confirmation.

A review of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) data by the Center for Immigration Policy in 2015 clearly shows that Sanctuary… Read More

Fraudulent Protests and Paid Protestors Are Mocking Free Speech

Across America media outlets are promoting various planned marches, rallies and “protests” for President-elect Donald J. Trump’s inauguration January 20. 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 Deploraball January 19, as well as the Presidential Inauguration January 20.

The Washington Times reported Tuesday that ads offering activists up to $2,500 per month to protest the inaugural of President-elect Donald Trump were running in more than two dozen cities, posted by a company called Demand Protest, run onBackpage.com. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exposed this group as fake on his show this week. But there are other groups advertising on Craig’s List offering protest jobs.

More likely these faux protestors will be paid $15 per hour, and receive transportation, food and hotel costs.

In 2015, I did a series… Read More

Environmentalism Provides Moral Cover for New Taxes to Fund Pensions

There are two intertwined themes that define unionized government in California. First, funding government retiree pensions will soak up every new source of tax revenue they will ever collect. Second, cloaking new taxes and fees – and new agencies – in the virtuous raiment of environmentalism will deflect criticism and demonize critics. Here’s why:

Now that Democrats have a super-majority in California’s state legislature, expect to see plentiful new taxes to pile onto the$5.0 billion in new state and local taxesthat were approved by voters on November 8th. After all,California’s projected 2017-18 state budgetstill has a $1.6 billion deficit. And that’s nothing. Here is a look what sort of deficit challenges California’s state and local governments are actually facing:

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

Removing all doubt that the California Agricultural Labor Relations Boardis 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“ofRead More

WILL TAXPAYERS BE MUGGED BY SACRAMENTO?

Governor Brown has just released his spending proposal for 2017-18 and taxpayers should not be blamed if they feel like they are walking down a dark alley in a high-crime neighborhood.

While the governor’s proposed budget has been described as austere, it still represents a spending boost of five percent, a rate of increase only slightly smaller than last year’s six percent. Because the state is in the process of rewarding its employees with generous pay increases and covering an expanding requirement to fund their pensions — pensions that are currently subsidized by six percent of the general fund budget — more spending does not represent an increase in the quantity or quality of services for average Californians.

The Brown budget contains no major program increases except for transportation. But the kicker is that this would be contingent on higher taxes on gasoline and car registration. So, while state workers will be kept snug and comfortable, if commuters want those pot holes repaired, they must pay extra.
