About Katy Grimes

Political Journalist, Saucy Cynic, Quintessential Analyst. Never a Stenographer.

Sang-Froid: composure or coolness, sometimes excessive, as shown in danger or under trying circumstances.


 Katy Grimes is a longtime political journalist, analyst, writer and author, and Editor at California Globe, covering the California Legislature and state agency politics from the State Capitol.

Katy was Senior Correspondent for the Flash Report and Senior Media Fellow with Energy & Environmental Legal Institute.

Katy has worked as an investigative journalist, political columnist and news reporter for The Sacramento Union, the Pacific Research Institute’s CalWatchdog Journalism Center.

Named one of the Top 25 Conservative Voices in California, Katy also writes for the Canada Free Press, Legal Insurrection, Frontpage Mag and Reagan Baby. She has been published in the Orange County Register, the Flash Report, Cal News, California Political News and Views, Fox and Hounds, Human Events, and Watchdog.org. She was a regular columnist for The Sacramento Union, and has written for the Washington Examiner, the San Francisco Examiner, the Sacramento Bee, Fox News, and the Business Journal.

Katy contributed the chapter on Crime in California to James Lacy’s Taxifornia 2016and co-authored “California’s War Against Donald Trump: Who Wins? Who Loses?” with Lacy, published September 2017.

Katy has also been an influential political blogger since 2004, and can be heard on many talk radio shows throughout California. Katy fills in as a talk radio host for Sacramento radio shows.

These days, it’s easier for people to re-tweet slogans to describe how they feel – Katy is the type coming up with those slogans. She’s an original in an increasingly postmodern, self-referential, un-original world. Whether or not you agree with her politically isn’t the reason to read her blog; it’s how she says what she says that makes you compelled to go back,”—Ryan Rose, Managing Editor, The Sacramento Union.

A California native, Katy lives in Sacramento with her husband Terry. Her son is a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, now a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy.

  1. I would like to send you information about Citizens for Fair Representation dba State of Jefferson. After listening to your interview on OAN, you need to be aware of what is real occurring and who is behind the efforts to separate, secede from the State of California.
    I represent the largest effort, that I believe you need to be brought up to date about: Time for the Real Story!

  2. FYI To show how far our society has fallen, there is an armed guard at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacramento each Saturday and Sunday during the masses. It’s a new world.
