An odd group of Never-Trump Republican centrists and political has-beens who formed "New Way California" earlier this year, claim New Way is needed because they are “committed to policies that increase opportunities for all Californians.” What they are committed to is remaining in power, even if that means being subservient to the Democrat Party … Continue reading ‘New Way California:’ Wrong Way, Deceptive Way
The midterm elections have turned out as most observers expected, nationally, statewide, and in Sacramento. By historical standards, nationally, the Democrats underperformed and lost a number of high-profile races. There was no Blue Wave - more like a blue ripple. However, California is another story, remaining as blue as can be. In the contest for … Continue reading California Blue Wave: Will it Lead to Insolvency Faster?

California State Sen. Joel Anderson, R-El Cajon, was accused in late August by Stephanie Roberson, a female lobbyist for the California Nurses Association labor union, of threatening to “bitch slap” her and harassing her at a Sacramento Capitol-area bar.

Jerry Brown a bill that would allow them to live outside the districts in which they were elected and ostensibly represent. What's next? Mayors who don't have to live in the cities in which they were elected? City council members who … Continue reading Shameless CA Legislators Pass Bill To Allow Them To Live Outside Their Districts

By Andy Caldwell One of the sure indications we live in a banana republic has to do with the fact that the rules do not apply to the rule makers!
