Chuck DeVore: “This race is winnable”
This race is very, very much winnable. Why? Turnout. According to some experts, Tuesday’s vote may be a RECORD LOW TURNOUT. With only 22% of vote by mail ballots turned in so far many people won’t vote at all and many more will bring their absentees with them on Election Day. There are many reasons why, mainly the lack of any real serious race for | Read More »

The Armenian Genocide, the President, and the truth.
On April 22nd, 1981, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation in which he asked the American people to commemorate the “solemn anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camps.” In doing so, he noted the other horrifying acts of 20th-century barbarism that preceded and succeed the Holocaust, including “the genocide of the Armenians before it.” No American President since Reagan has had the simple | Read More »
Our Mission: Repeal It.
The passage of this phony healthcare “reform” is a tremendous blow to the cause of fiscal restraint, limited government, Constitutional principles, and free enterprise. In short, it strikes directly at America’s core principles. This is shameful moment in the history of our country — and especially the Democratic Party, which has apparently come unmoored from whatever remaining attachment it had to the ideals of our | Read More »

Ad: Barbara Boxer: condescending, disrespectful… or just mean?
Senator Barbara Boxer is at it again. Whenever she disagrees with someone, her first instinct is to show them disrespect. Whether Boxer’s dealing with former Secretary of State Condi Rice, Gen. Petraeus, BG Walsh, Harry Alford of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, or Michael Steele, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, you can be sure that her condescending manner will show through — or | Read More »
Doctors, Police & Firemen – Oh my Obama!
Over the course of the past few weeks it has become obvious that President Obama distrusts those who serve us the most in our communities. It’s time for real change in Washington. Assemblyman Chuck DeVore http://chuckdevore.com/
Boxer’s En-Title-ment ?
What is it about liberals and the military? Why are liberals uncomfortable with the military? Why do some liberals apparently despise our military? Is it because the armed services remind them that not every international dispute can be solved with soothing words uttered by a diplomat? Is it because they view military expenditures as taking money away from greater health and welfare spending? The latest | Read More »
Vindicated & The New Tax Revolt
First a quick video. A bit of crowing perhaps: Now the real meat of the story: California lawmakers are struggling to spin the results of the May 19 special election, fearful of the possibility that the voters may have just fired the first shot of the next great tax revolt. I was on NPR with Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) the day after | Read More »

Web Ad: Stimulus? It’s in there!
Barbara Boxer was on C-Span this morning discussing the stimulus bill when she declared: “Writing this bill is like making sausage.” That’s about right. Coincidentally, we have a web ad on a similar subject released today:
The New Obama Tax Calculator
Yesterday’s awful vote on Timothy Geithner aptly demonstrates that Washington has lost its bearings. For this purpose I’ve created a new calculator to show you just how your taxes will work moving foward. It’s pretty straight forward:
The double standard means never having to say you’re sorry
photo: WashingtonPost.com Let’s go on a trip down memory lane to the not-too-distant past. In 1986, Linda Chavez left her high ranking post in the Reagan Administration to run for the U.S. Senate against Maryland liberal Barbara Mikulski (a political clone of Barbara Boxer, but that’s another story). In a bad year for Republicans, Chavez lost the race. In 2001, President George W. Bush nominated | Read More »
Sen. Boxer approves Panetta at CIA: a reckless pick in a dangerous time
From the diaries, by Erick On Monday, January 5, President-elect Obama selected former Cong. Leon Panetta to be the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Panetta’s chief qualification is his utter lack of intelligence experience – meaning that he has not been involved with any of the intelligence activities in the past 7 years that have kept America safe. This makes him an acceptable candidate | Read More »
