Gov. Jerry Brown’s (D, CA) new budget: more spending and higher taxes!
To summarize: $92.6 billion in spending (7% increase over last year’s); $9.2 billion deficit over eighteen months (half in the first six months, the other half in the next twelve). Brown is requesting $7 billion in new taxes, mostly from raising the sales tax again (to 7.75%) but with a faux-populist-friendly soak-the-rich* (actually, soak-the-small-business-owner) increase to 10.3%. Or the state can ‘cut’ an additional $4.8 | Read More »
Dick Blumenthal’s Countrywide problem.
It’s not often that you’ll see a conservative site link approvingly to a Nation article, but these are odd days. The executive summary: in 2008 Countrywide Financial/Bank of America – yes, the same Countrywide that gave sweetheart loans to Senator Dodd of Connecticut, who completely non-coincidentally decided not to run for re-election this year – entered into a 8.6 billion dollar settlement with those of | Read More »
CA GOV: Moonbeam COULDN’T fire aide making ‘whore’ comment…
…because the technical term here would be ‘divorce.’ Yes. Fox News reports that the source of the misogynist attack is now alleged to be no less than Anne Gust Brown herself, who is both wife and campaign aide to Jerry Brown. This is ‘alleged’ because there is some indication that this may be, of all things, a deliberate attempt by the Brown campaign to fix | Read More »
Brown’s immigration smear of Whitman continues to unravel.
Two things to take away from this San Francisco Chronicle article (H/T: The Other McCain) on Jerry Brown’s Gloria Allred’s nonsensical attacks on Meg Whitman: First, this sentence: “Lawyers said an employer’s obligation upon receiving a no-match letter from the Social Security Administration is to check their own records for typographical or other errors, inform the employee that the records do not match and tell | Read More »
Moonbeam Brown (D CAND, CA-GOV) opens mouth, attacks… CLINTON?
Wait, what? A quote from the video: “Meg Whitman. She stops at nothing. She’s even got Clinton lying about me. That’s right.” Note the tense, there… and, yes, that’s what Brown really said. And a little while later he went on to mock Bill Clinton by saying “I did not have taxes with that state.” I assume that Brown wants to win the California gubernatorial | Read More »
Moonbeam Brown protested at Code Pink shindig.
This report of a lie-in by pro-victory in Iraq protesters at a fundraiser held for Jerry Brown by notorious terrorist sympathizer Jodie Evans highlights a very, very serious set of questions involving not only Brown’s associations, but also his own motivations. The fact that Brown is attempting to get Code Pink’s money like this leads to various questions: Jodie Evans once reportedly told a Gold | Read More »
