Gerawan Farming Taking CA Ag Labor Board Case to US Supreme Court

Surprising no one, on Nov. 27, the California Supreme Court upheld the dubious Mandatory Mediation and Conciliation law against Gerawan Farming. The California Supreme Court heard the Gerawan case last fall on whether the state’s attempting to force mandatory agricultural labor union contracts violates the constitutional safeguard of equal protection. Fresno-based peach grower Gerawan Farming is one of the largest agriculture employers in the state.

Why Senate Democrats Oppose Good Budget Transparency Bill

Why would Senate Democrats oppose a transparency bill, when every one of them campaigns on the importance of government transparency?

I testified in support of Rancho Cucamonga Sen. Mike Morrell’s Senate Bill 921Tuesday.

In addition to being a State Capitol political reporter, my other job is President of the Sacramento Taxpayers Association, which has been a presence in Sacramento, CA since 1961.

The bill will require each California state agency or department to post simple budgetary information on the home page of their website in a manner that is… Read More

California’s Identity Politics, Virtue Signaling Ignore New Sen. Pres. Dirty Politics

Who really cares thatSen. Toni Atkins became the first woman and first LGBT person to lead the California Senate on Wednesday? Shouldn’t we be more interested in her character and ability to lead?

California newspaper headlines screamed Thursday Sen. Toni Atkins became the first woman and first LGBT person to lead the California Senate.

A rainbow flag representing gay pride hung next to the California and U.S. flags in the Capitol rotunda.

Wait? Where was the “I AM WOMAN” flag?

Who cares about any of this virtue signaling and identity politics other than the leftists running California’s State Capitol? Our “rulers” live in another country.

James Bartholomew identifiedand coined the phrase “virtue signaling” in a 2015 Spectator article: “Saying the right things violently on Twitter is much easier than real kindness.” But what is Virtue Signaling? It is when people take a conspicuous but… Read More

#FauxFeminists in CA Legislative Women’s Caucus Silent On’ Sexual Abuse Charges

With the ongoing investigations into charges of sexual harassment and abuse by lawmakers inside the California State Capitol, there is a deafening silence coming from the Legislature’s Women’s Caucus. Are all of the feminist lawmakers MIA? Why are they silent on the sexual harassment charges against their colleagues? Don’t they care about the victims? The law dictates they must protect the victims, not the perpetrators. But that’s not how the Capitol investigations are being conducted in Sacramento.

Let’s get the skunk on the table: If Senator Tony Mendoza, or Senator Bob Hertzberg, or Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia were Republicans, they would have been expelled by their colleagues on January 3rd. And the Legislative Women’s Caucus would have been righteously outraged; Democrat Sen. Hannah Beth Jackson would have demanded Republican heads on a silver platter; Democrat Sen. Connie Leyva would have demanded more than suspensions; And where is the usually righteously indignant Democrat Sen. Holly Mitchell and her “… Read More

Oust California Teacher and Councilman Who Called Military ‘Dumbsh*ts’

I’m just a Navy mom of a United States Naval Academy graduatewho is currently a Navy special ops officer, and has had two long Middle East deployments. I wasn’t going to weigh in on the liberal California councilman and public school teacher who told his students “military Are ‘dumbsh*ts” and “lowest of our low.” That is, until I read that the school district officials of Gregory Salcido, El Rancho High School history teacher and a current member of thePico Rivera City Council, were covering for him, even after he said when speaking about our military, “They’re the frickin’ lowest of our low,” in one of three videos that surfaced last week.

Another Episode of ‘As the Capitol Turns’ In Which The ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ Aren’t

In another Episode of ‘As the Capitol Turns’ we see that in our ‘Search For Tomorrow,” the ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ aren’t, ‘Dark Shadows’ lurk in the hallways, ‘Passions’ flare, and ‘The Guiding Light’ only lures young interns and fellows to ‘The Edge of Night.’ Or perhaps this is just another in theHow California Democrats Have Turned The Golden State Into A ‘Sh*thole’ series.

If the persistent whisper network around the California State Capitol is evidence of anything, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), is scrambling to prevent the other shoe from dropping… on him. The Capitol sexual harassment scandal under de Leon’s watch is growing, despite de Leon’s attempt at containment.

De León’s “containment” is not to help the female victims of these sexual harassers; the containment is solely to protect lawmakers’ jobs and future prospects. This is becauseCalifornia… Read More

Pardon Me, Governor Brown

Pardonne moi, Governor Jerry Brown, but California is a cesspool and you are giving absolution to criminals.

Brown’s smug ‘burn it down and leave’ attitude, together with all of the left, is based on the self-righteous belief that more than half of the country does not know what’s good for them – and liberals and leftists do. They hate us for not aspiring to their glamorous and important lives, and then feel compelled to tell us how to live.

Burn it Down and Leave

Because of Governor Jerry Brown’s ineptitude, incompetence and corruption, Californians are facing a dangerous and uncertain future. Because Jerry Brown would not address the issues a sincere governor must, his chosen distractions like climate change and criminal pardons are costing us dearly. On his way to United Nations climate talks in Bonn, Germany in November, Brown stopped by the Vatican to chat up like-minded climate change thought leaders, and said, “It… Read More

Former Assemblywoman Says ‘Huggy Bear’ Sen. Hertzberg Groped Her

The flood of sexual groping, assault and harassment complaints in California’s State Capitol is turning into a tsunami. So far, accusations have been levied by women againstState Senator Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia), Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra (D-Arleta) Assemblyman Matt Dababneh (D-Los Angeles), Assemblyman Devin Mathis (R-Visalia), and more to come. The“whisper network” inside of the Capitol tells much: Several additional lawmakers are being named as harassers, and I heard that one leader’s Chief of Staff contacted former female staffers to offer incentives to avert any potential accusations. Ouch.

In a lengthy conversation with former Assemblywoman Linda Halderman Tuesday, she shared some very disturbing incidences that took place when she was a freshman Assemblywoman.

Dr. Linda Halderman, whose professional experience prior to and post politics as a general/trauma surgeon, was elected to the California Assembly in 2010, representing Fresno, CA. Halderman said shortly after she arrived in fall of 2010, the freshman Assembly members were required to attend training conducted by former AssemblyRead More
