Twisted Eco-Socialism in Sacramento With ‘Free’ Zipcars For the Poor

The City of Sacramento, under the short reign of former State Sen. Darrell Steinberg (D), now Sacramento Mayor, just approved free electric Zipcars for residents of Sacramento’s public housing projects. Wow!

But don’t worry taxpayers – “The program is funded through a $1.3 million grant from the California Air Resources Board using cap-and-trade funds that businesses pay to offset their carbon emissions,” according to the Sacramento Bee. In other words, the money extorted from California businesses for the privilege of being allowed to continue doing business in this state, is paying for these free cars for people who don’t work.

The CARB designed the flawed cap-and-trade system, and set up carbon auctions, which do nothing to… Read More

Taxpayers need sanctuary from foolishness

Grandstanding California politicians seem intent on outdoing each other in finding new ways to appear to be resisting the policies of our new president. Efforts to ban cooperation by local agencies with the federal government on immigration issues include working to make California a “sanctuary state.”

As prominent elected officials beat their chests in defiance of federal law, they ignore the fact that their actions could jeopardize the wellbeing of millions of Californians who depend on the hundreds of billions of dollars Washington provides our state, the majority of which goes to support vital services to our most vulnerable citizens.

While the governor and the majority of the members of the Legislature seem intent on putting California’s share of federal dollars at risk — sort of like playing Russian roulette only the gun is aimed at the heads of taxpayers and the needy — there is an alternative. Assembly Bill 536 (by this column’s coauthor Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez) would protect the billions of dollars California currently receives in federal funding.

Republicans repeal $1 trillion in Obamacare taxes

Republicans in Washington are moving forward with keeping the promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. Right on cue, Democrats and their allies in the media are rallying to defend legislation that has proven so unpopular it’s hard to keep track of the number of Democrats who have been defeated since they imposed the “Affordable” Care Act on the American people.

I was one of the million Californians whose health insurance policy was made illegal by Obamacare – directly contradicting President Obama’s claim that “if you like your plan you can keep your plan.” That promise was swept away in order to make health care “affordable.” But it didn’t do that either, as evidenced by the double digit rate increases we have seen across the country since its passage.

Another Obama promise broken with the passage of Obamacare was the commitment to not… Read More

Who Cares About Janet Napolitano’s Worthless Apology To CA Legislators?

There are numerous news articles about University of California President Janet Napolitano apologizing to legislators this week over a state audit which found $175 million squirreled away in a secret account, while the UC universities were increasing tuition costs on students.

The problem is, her apology is hollow, meaningless, worthless, or any number of synonyms for her senseless drivel. She knows nothing will happen to her.

“UC President Janet Napolitano apologized to a joint legislative oversight committee on Tuesday, a week after a blistering state audit of UC’s central administration found tens of millions of dollars in reserve funds that weren’t publicly disclosed and accused the president’s office of interfering with a survey of campuses assessing the office’s effectiveness,” the San Jose Mercury News… Read More

CA’s Gerawan Farming Files Motion to Disqualify Sen. Hall on Ag Labor Board

Gerawan Farming just filed a motion with the ALRB to disqualify former Sen. Isadore Hall from making any decisions related to their pending cases. And for good reason. Not only does Sen. Hall have no experience in or relatedto agriculture,Hall even voted for the “farmworker overtime bill”to force morefarming employersinto United Farm Workers union contracts.

At issue is Hall’s ability to be fair to agricultural employers because of his dependable support of union labor, and especially the United Farm Workers.… Read More

Vietnam after Black April: Liberation or Exploitation?

Black April, April 30, 1975 marks the end of the longest military conflict in the 20th Century for Vietnam. While the Vietnam War might have ended then, the people of Vietnam still do not enjoy peace and freedom in their own country. Even though many nations around the world have normalized diplomatic relations with Vietnam, as the U.S. has done so in 1995, the Hanoi Regime has not chosen to normalize relations with its own citizens.

The Communist Party of Vietnam continues to oppress its people, including journalists, peaceful dissidents and human rights advocates. To understand why this condition continues to persist and why we must take a stand against it, we must look back at how Communist Vietnam came into power and how we can force a change in its direction.

Vietnamese Communism did not start in 1975, or 1945 for that matter, but, in fact, in 1930 as an attachment to the Chinese Communist… Read More

FlashReport Court Victory Spurs Union-Backed Legislation

It is no secret that most government employees enjoy far more generous salaries and benefits than the public who pay for those benefits. It is important for the voters to know if their elected officials are properly representing them in these negotiations. The unions as private organizations are not required to conduct any of their meetings on these negotiations in public. The public entities (City Councils, etc.) almost always conduct their meetings in closed (private) sessions under the Brown Act. Elected officials are not allowed to reveal information presented to them in a closed session under the Brown Act.

The California Public Records Act (CPRA) starting at Government Code section 6250 provides: “In enacting this chapter, the Legislature, mindful of the right of individuals to privacy, finds and declares that access to information concerning the conduct of the people’s business is a fundamental and necessary right of every person in this state.” All public records are subject to disclosure when requested by a member of the public unless they fall into an “exempt” category such as documents containing attorney client communications or certain… Read More

Congressman Tom McClintock

First 100 Days

The last four elections have defined one of the most dramatic political realignments in our country’s history. In those elections, we’ve seen a net shift of 64 U.S. House seats, 12 U.S. Senate seats, 10 governors, 919 state legislative seats and the presidency shift from Democrats to Republicans.

This happened in large part on three overarching mandates: revive the economy; secure our borders and repair our healthcare system. If President Trump can accomplish these three objectives, his administration and this congress will be remembered as one of the most successful and beneficial in our nation’s history.

In working toward these goals, President Trump has faced the most bitter, virulent and partisan opposition that any president has endured since the election of 1860. We have seen the radical left on full display across the nation, with its appalling… Read More
