THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

California had 77 of the country's 100 most expensive ZIP Codes for home sales

Millionaires Only Please
The median home price in Santa Monica is $3.5 million

(Los Angeles Times)  -  A year-end report from real estate database PropertyShark has confirmed what every Angeleno already knows: California is a really expensive place to live.

The analysis, which surveyed the priciest ZIP Codes in the country based on median home sales prices, found that California holds 77 of the 100 most expensive spots, including five in the top 10.

New York came in with the second most ZIP Codes at 19. No other state had more than two.

Topping the list of most expensive ZIP Codes was 94027 in Atherton, Calif., a Silicon Valley city full of tech executives, which had a median sale price of $4.95 million, according to the data.

The 10013 ZIP Code of New York, home to the high-priced luxury condos of Tribeca in Manhattan, saw a median price of $4.1 million. In Miami Beach area, the 33109 ZIP Code the median was $4.052 million.

In Los Angeles, two of the most identifiable areas grabbed spots in the top 10: Beverly Hills, 90210, which had a median price of $3.85 million, and Santa Monica, 90402, which had a median of $3.512 million.

On a county level, Los Angeles featured more entries on the list than any other, with 18 landing in the top 100. Those include ZIP Codes in Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, San Marino, Venice, La Cañada Flintridge, the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Hermosa Beach, Duarte and Encino.

The data compiled by Property Shark accounts for all residential transactions closed in 2017, including single-family homes, two-family homes, co-ops and condos.

The report shows a slight uptick in California median prices in 2017 compared with the previous year. In 2016, the Golden State had 72 ZIP Codes ranked in the top 100, while the highest median sale price in the country, at $5.5 million, was in the 11962 ZIP Code of Sagaponack, N.Y., a village in the Hamptons known for its oceanfront mansions and celebrity homeowners.

Democrats make California a Sanctuary State

Democrats say "Fuck You"
to Americans Citizens

  • American citizens of all colors and ethnic backgrounds were told by Democrats to go fuck themselves and open their wallets to pay for every possible need of millions and millions of illegal aliens.
  • But the moron Sheeple voters just bend over and vote Democrat. Voters who are that stupid deserve the coming shit-fest.

Anonymous Street artists moved out to highways once again to ring in the new year by posting messages to the “Welcome to California” highway signs.

The signs were put up north of Lake Havasu, Arizona, Primm, Nevada and on Highway 95 in California and read:
“OFFICIAL SANCTUARY STATE, Felons, Illegals and MS13 Welcome! Democrats Need The Votes!”
The highway signs are apparently commemorating California’s new Sanctuary State status.

Sex Helps California Democrats to lose Assembly supermajority

Pervert Democrats Kill Supermajority

(AP)  -  California Democrats will be without a supermajority in the Assembly for months and risk losing the two-thirds edge needed to pass tax and fee increases in the Senate.
When lawmakers return in January, they will have two vacant Assembly seats that won't be filled until at least April after Los Angeles members resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations. In the Senate, a member in a competitive district is facing a recall over his support for a gas tax increase and another could face pressure to resign depending on the results of a misconduct allegation.
"It will certainly affect votes," said Democratic Assemblyman Ken Cooley, chairman of the rules committee.
Supermajorities were needed this year to pass the gas tax increase and reauthorize the cap-and-trade program. Passing a budget only requires a simple majority.
Although the changes cut into the Democrats' legislative power, tax and fee increases are less likely to come up for votes in election years because they can be unpopular with voters.
Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday set an April 3 primary date for a special election to replace former Assemblyman Raul Bocangera, who resigned last month amid sexual misconduct allegations. If no candidate gets at least 50 percent of the vote, a general election will take place June 5, the same day as the statewide primary.
A date hasn't been set to replace Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, another San Fernando Valley Democrat, who plans to resign Jan. 1. He denies a lobbyist's allegation that he assaulted her in a bar bathroom last year.
Sen. Tony Mendoza also could face pressure to resign depending on the results of an investigation into sexual misconduct claims. He denies improper behavior.
A date hasn't been set for a recall election against Sen. Josh Newman of Fullerton. Newman's district spans parts of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties and is highly competitive.
Democrats jammed a new set of recall rules through the Legislature this year — including one that requires the state to estimate how much a recall will cost.

Leftist Democrat steps down after sexual harassment allegations

Another Leftist Asshole Bites The Dust

  • I hate how phony Leftist are. They parade around claiming to better than everyone else while shoving their hands down women's pants.

(The Hill)  -  The Democratic majority whip of the California State Assembly on Monday announced that he will immediately resign following allegations of sexual harassment.
In a statement posted to his Facebook page, Raul Bocanegra said he has decided to resign "effective immediately" instead of waiting until September of 2018, as he had originally announced.
“Upon further reflection during the recent holiday weekend, and conversations with family, friends, supporters, I have decided to resign earlier from the State Assembly effective immediately, which was my original intention,” Bocanegra said in the statement.
Bocanegra cited "persistent rumors" of sexual misconduct in a statement last week to the Los Angeles Times in which he initially announced his plans to resign. 
The Times earlier this month said it had contacted Bocanegra's office in reporting a story about six women who claimed they had been sexually harassed by the state lawmaker.
Bocanegra in his statement to the newspaper said he had asked California’s Assembly Rules Committee to investigate the allegations.
On Monday, Bocanegra denied that he is guilty of such crimes but said he is “admittedly not perfect.”
“I sincerely hope that my decision to resign immediately does not embolden those who are using this serious problem in our society to advance their own personal political gain, rather it is my hope that this action can instead help to widen the doors for victims of sexual assault and workplace harassment to find justice and solace,” he said.

California Democrat legislators are exempt from state laws

(San Francisco Chronicle)  -  The state Legislature’s exemption of its own employees from a 1999 law intended to protect the jobs of whistle-blowers has garnered attention in recent weeks, as women complaining of pervasive sexual harassment in the state Capitol publicly call for such protections for legislative employees. But the whistle-blower act isn’t the only area of the law in which the Legislature has demonstrated a “do as I say, not as I do” mentality.

Take access to public records. Want to know whom government officials are meeting with, talking to or emailing? Or how officials were disciplined after an investigation found them culpable of wrongdoing? State agencies and local governments must release such information — calendars, emails and disciplinary records — under the California Public Records Act, which the Legislature created in 1968. But the same information is nearly impossible to get from state lawmakers, because the Public Records Act does not apply to the Legislature.

Instead, lawmakers are covered by the Legislative Open Records Act, which they passed in 1975 in the wake of the Watergate scandal. The act that applies to them is riddled with exceptions, effectively keeping secret many documents that other branches of government must disclose.

“The Legislature has created in many areas a black box where the public can’t see records it would be entitled to see if the public officials at issue weren’t in the Legislature,” said David Snyder, executive director of the First Amendment Coalition, a nonprofit organization advocating government transparency.

The Legislature’s open records law allows it to withhold investigations of wrongdoing, even when they led to disciplinary action. It also keeps secret correspondence by lawmakers and their staff, as well as officials’ calendars. The Legislature even refused to give reporters the calendars of two senators undergoing federal prosecution on corruption charges until media companies sued and won a court order compelling their release.

As more government agencies began storing information electronically, the Legislature updated the Public Records Act in 2000 to compel disclosure of digital records. Now state agencies and local governments must provide public records in any format in which they exist. That gives the public access to electronic records, such as databases, in their original digital format.

But the Legislature has never made the same update to its own open records act. “It was a nonstarter,” former Assemblyman Kevin Shelley of San Francisco told the Sacramento Bee in 2015.

Then there’s the open meetings law. The idea that government meetings should be open to the public has been enshrined in California law for more than 60 years. In 1953, the Legislature passed the open meeting law that applies to local governments, and in 1967 it passed a similar one for state agencies. Yet the 1973 law it passed requiring open meetings of the Legislature does not follow the same rules.

One major difference: It allows legislators to gather secretly in partisan caucuses. When issues hit the floor of the Assembly or the Senate, it’s common for one political party or the other to pause proceedings and call for a caucus. Legislators file out of the chamber and into two private meeting rooms where Democrats and Republicans separately gather for conversations that exclude the public and the media. They can hash out disagreements or craft strategy behind closed doors, then return to the chamber to publicly cast their votes.

Local governments, such as city councils, cannot do this.

NAACP says National Anthem is racist

Leftist Idiots on Parade

  • Morons fascinate me. The NAACP is silent about millions of illegal aliens being imported taking away jobs from African American citizens. Instead they get their Leftist panties in a twist over phony issues like millionaire NFL players and and the national anthem.

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The California NAACP is pushing to get rid of the national anthem that they’re calling racist and anti-black.
“This song is wrong; it shouldn’t have been there, we didn’t have it ’til 1931, so it won’t kill us if it goes away,” said the organization’s president Alice Huffman.
Colin Kaepernick started the NFL protests, which quickly spread to bring attention to systemic racial injustice in the country. But Huffman says Kaepernick’s message was lost when it turned into a debate about the flag.
Huffman adds that the protests did lead her to look at the lyrics of the “Star Spangled Banner” especially the parts of the anthem we don’t typically sing.
“It’s racist; it doesn’t represent our community, it’s anti-black,” she said.
Huffman is referring to the third stanza which includes the lyric “no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.”
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
She says some interpretations conclude that the lyrics celebrate the deaths of black American slaves fighting for freedom, and the song should be replaced with something that supports all of our values.
“That’s an extreme way of doing things,” said Kenneth Lu, a veteran living in Davis.
The opinions varied at the VFW in West Sacramento.
“I believe it’s a slap across the face, whether there’s a flaw in the context, I don’t see it that way. I have to stick with our traditions and our values and what we represent,” said Sydney Lugo.
“It won’t solve any problem,” said veteran John Cox.
Huffman says it may not solve anything, but it’s a step towards social justice that she says is long overdue.
“This is not about the flag. We love the flag. This is about a song that should never have been the national anthem. This country is a country that has shared values, and the more we respect each other, the better off we’ll be as a country,” said Huffman.
A separate resolution by the California NAACP is calling on Congress to censure President Donald Trump for his remarks about firing those who don’t stand for the anthem. They are also asking NFL teams to let Kaepernick play again.
