An overview of California’s “other” race
California’s race for the Senate is easy for people all across the country to care about, but we’re also going to elect a new Governor next year. Term limited or not, Governor Schwarzenegger has burned his bridges with most of the party and likely will never seek elective office again. So it’s an open seat, and an open field for both parties this time around. | Read More »

The War for the California Republican Party
At our next Republican Convention here in California, the most important vote we take may be the vote to close our primary elections, ensuring that people are Republicans before they can choose who will represent our party on the ballot. Since 1999 when we opened our primaries to those who do not join a party, we have had no noteworthy statewide electoral success from primary-nominated | Read More »
CA people defeat leftist blackmailers, with the help of a surprising ally
The SEIU is furious . according to Yvonne Walker, president of the SEIU Local 1000. If that was all you heard about the budget deal struck by The Governator and legislative leaders yesterday, you’d already know that the people of California had won this round. As Krempasky wrote earlier today, Arnold drew what appear to be astounding concessions from legislative leaders in dealing with severe | Read More »

See if “The Big Scam” looks familiar
Wait, what state do I live in again? Seems there’s nothing new under the sun, in California, North Carolina, or anywhere else for that matter. The playbook remains the same. First Gov. Arnold comes up with what looks at first like a good idea; a flat tax. I say looks good at first because the proposed tax rate would be 15% which is substantial considering | Read More »
The California budget slate goes down
Yesterday California voted on a slate of budget measures put forth by tax-and-spend Democrats. Three of them were outright terrible for the state, two were playing pure budgetary shell games, and one was a meaningless propaganda exercise meant to bolster the rest. Proposition 1F, the propaganda exercise that attempts to deny pay raises for state elected officials when the budget is in deficit, passed and | Read More »
California’s budget slate must be defeated
The California Constitution requires that our state government’s budget be balanced every year. Having a RiNO* in the Governor’s chair and Democrats controlling the entire legislature make that a fantasy though. They spend, and spend, and when tax revenues fall, they cry about Republican failures to approve tax increases. Thanks to the Governor and a few other turncoats, they got a sales tax increase this | Read More »
Governor Schwarzenegger favors Democrats in judicial appointments
Governor Schwarzenegger has announced a new slate of judicial appointees, and he is now completely favoring left-wing Democrats. In the past he was managing to appoint slightly more Republicans than Democrats, as Jon Fleischman points out, but now he has gone completely over the line and favors Democrats over Republicans. The numbers: in May he appointed 9 Republicans, 8 Democrats, but now he’s appointed 16 | Read More »
TV ad in the making?
This 10 reasons “real men” vote for McCain is funny. But number 10 gives me some vague ideas for a kick butt ad: “McCain is endorsed by Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.” Tell me you can’t think of ad with those 4 men that would kick butt.
