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."

Never Trumper Meg Whitman is backing Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa for Governor

Thank God I Voted Libertarian
  • I smelled Meg's bullshit from 100 miles away and voted for the Libertarian Party for Governor in 2010. 
  • Shortly after the GOP and Dems joined forces to ban all small political parties and independent candidates from all future general election ballots. My only choice these days is to leave the ballot blank. 

(Breitbart California)  -  Billionaire Meg Whitman, who was the Republican nominee for California governor in 2010 and lost to Jerry Brown, is backing Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa for governor in 2018.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “Whitman, the billionaire former eBay CEO who spent $144 million of her own money on her failed run in 2010, is co-hosting a fundraiser Thursday night for Villaraigosa in Silicon Valley.”

A source close to Whitman told the Chronicle, “Meg has endorsed Antonio because, although she is a Republican, she believes he’s the best candidate for the job. Meg believes that Antonio is stronger than (Lt. Gov.) Gavin (Newsom) on both the economy and education, which are both important issues.”

Whitman is endorsing Villaraigosa likely knowing full well that if he places second in the June 5 primary, he and Newsom — a fellow Democrat — will advance to the general election, with no Republican on the ballot.

That, in turn, analysts say, would put the Republican Party at greater risk of losing control of Congress, because fewer Republicans would turn out to vote, and Democrats would benefit in congressional races throughout the state.

In 2016, Whitman emerged as one of the strongest voices against President Donald Trump during his successful bid for the nation’s highest office, contributing financially the “Never Trump” movement against him.

She reportedly compared Trump to the fascist dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Adopting Communist holiday pushed in California

A Democrat California assemblyman introduced a bill seeking to make “May Day,” or International Workers Day, a state holiday that would replace President George Washington’s or President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.

Assemblyman Miguel Santiago’s (D-Los Angeles) legislation calls for consolidating the two presidents’ birthdays to be observed on the third Monday in February as a single “President’s Day” holiday, but it also calls for the state to observe May 1 as “International Workers Day.”

International Workers Day, also known as “May Day,” had been observed in countries under Communism for decades and was designated as an official holiday of the Soviet Union.

In Russia, workers still march to celebrate May Day, with more than 100,000 people coming out for the traditional May Day parade in Moscow this year.

But not everyone in the California Assembly was on board with replacing a president’s birthday with a holiday steeped in communist roots.

“Are we in competition to become the laughingstock of the United States?” Assemblyman Matthew Harper (R-Huntington Beach) asked in a floor speech Thursday. “This is ridiculous. This is insane.”

“Seriously, the substitution of adding International Socialist Workers’ Day? May Day? The day of parades in the Soviet Union?” Harper added. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to make it through committee.”

Santiago’s May Day bill did not pass on Thursday, but the California Democrat made a motion for the Assembly to reconsider the legislation.

Breaking the Democrat Super-Majority in Sacramento

Republican Councilman Justin Mendes is the son of Portuguese dairy farmers. His family started dairying in the 1930s and his father was a 3rd generation dairyman. 

Can the pathetic GOP get its act together?

  • The Central Valley is ground zero to blocking the Leftist Democrats from having total control.
  • If the GOP rolls over and plays dead again the sky will be the limit for Leftist tax increases.

(Bakersfield Californian)  -  The race between 32nd District Assemblyman Rudy Salas, D-Bakersfield, and Republican Justin Mendes will be decided in November.
But their round-one face off in June will provide a critical clue about whether the Hanford Councilman and political staffer has a chance to unseat the three-term Salas.
A little political education will help here.
In the heavily Democratic 32nd District, which includes all of Kings County and the rural, Latino communities in western Kern County, Republican voters historically head to the polls at a much higher rate then Democrats.
That effect is much more dramatic in gubernatorial election years — like this one — that are scheduled halfway between Presidential elections.
32nd Assembly District
48% Democrat, 26% GOP, 26% independent and small political parties.

The Republican voting advantage is even more pronounced in primary elections like the one coming up in a little more than one month.
In other words, the June 5 primary is the absolute best time for Mendes, a staffer for Republican Congressman David Valadao, to out-poll Salas in a district where Democrats have a 22.5 percent registration advantage over the GOP.
If Mendes can’t do that, then things look bleak for him in November when more Latino and Democratic voters are expected to turn out to the polls.
But Cal State Bakersfield Political Science Professor Mark Martinez said Kings County, Mendes’ home turf, is still the key to the race.
“The battlefield there is going to be Kings County,” he said. “If Rudy can maintain 35 to 40 percent in Kings he should win this thing. He’ll probably have to pull 40 percent.”
That isn’t an easy task for most Kern County Democrats.
Kings County is heavily Republican and its voters are exceptionally active.
Martinez points to a list of Democrats who’ve been “clobbered” in Kings County — and subsequently have lost races in Democratic stronghold districts that mirror nearly all of the 32nd District.
Kern County Supervisor Leticia Perez lost a State Senate election to Republican Andy Vidak in 2013.

Amanda Renteria, running for Congress against Valadao in 2014, got only 23 percent in Kings County
Emilio Huerta lost against Valadao there in 2016 with 29 percent of the vote.
Salas has topped 40 percent in Kings County in every election.
And he’s won each time.
But he hasn’t run against an opponent with roots in King’s County’s ag-powered political family.
Mendes, who worked campaigns for Valadao and, like his boss, is the son of Portugese Dairy farmers, has obviously seen the template for winning.
And he’s developed a classic middle-of-the-road campaign narrative for the Central Valley, giving his support to immigration reform and calling for DACA to be left in place and Dreamers to have a place in the U.S.
“We’re talking about hard-working individuals who work long hours and send money back to their families and pay taxes,” Mendes said. “What gets in the way of immigration reform are the extremes grabbing the microphone. We need the labor here. Unfortunately the sanctuary state law is forcing ICE to look for the bad guys among the good guys.”
He bashed Salas for voting in support of the sanctuary state bill.
And Menedes is calling for red meat Republican changes like reform of the California Environmental Quality Act, cuts to anti-business regulation and construction of more water storage projects.
He’s even issued a critique of the California High Speed Rail project.
“The budget overruns, the lack of oversight. My children (age 1 and 4) will probably never ride it,” Mendes said.
Still, he said, he will be able to operate effectively in the deep blue halls of Democrat-dominated Sacramento by reaching across the aisle.

“They will most likely lose the supermajority (in the Legislature) and they will need somebody to talk to,” Mendes said of Democracts. “I’m not going up there to be hyper-partisan.”
But Salas knows his district and opposes high speed rail, co-authored the 2014 water bond and took a political hit for voting against his party on California’s new road improvement tax.
The tax hits the poor people in the 32nd Assembly harder than it does other people because it snaps up more of their paycheck.
“They’re not always happy with me because I’m a strong, independent voice,” Salas said of his party leadership and Governor Jerry Brown.
There was tremendous pressure to vote for the bill, he said, but he stood his ground.
It cost him a chairmanship seat on a top committee.
“I was punished,” he said. “But I have no regrets.”
Salas acknowledged the challenge from Mendes, but said he’s not focused on his opponent. His focus is on serving the district.
What he’s done, he said, has given him inroads with Republicans in the 32nd District.
“I’ll walk up to a Republican house and they’ll say, “Rudy, you’re the only Democrat we’ll vote for.”
The only stance he’s taken that could cost him with Republicans is his vote for California’s Sanctuary State bill, a decision he said he stands by.
The bill restricts the type of criminals that state law enforcement agencies can transfer to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
But it doesn’t, as Republicans like to claim, stop local law enforcement from transferring people with serious, dangerous convictions to ICE, Salas said.
But the impact of ICE raids to the communities he represents has been significant.
“ICE coming into our communities has stirred up a lot of emotions,” he said.
People are avoiding going out in public and businesses are suffering from the loss of revenue.
But Salas said it is critical to protect the workers who play a major part in California’s robust economy.
Salas said he hopes the voters of the 32nd District will look at his record and return him to office.
“I’ve been a proven, strong, independent voice for the Valley,” he said.
Mendes is hoping voters will look for a new voice to support.

Sacramento Delta Water Stolen by Unelected ScCal Water Board

"Corruptus in Extremis"
The political liar class are moving heaven and earth to rape the Sacramento Delta in
order to repay the huge campaign contributions to the politicians from business and
labor looking to profit from the building contracts.

(AP) — California’s largest water agency on Tuesday approved a nearly $11 billion plan to help fund two enormous tunnels, breathing new life into Gov. Jerry Brown’s ambitious and controversial plan to remake the state’s water system.
The board of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California voted to pay about $10.8 billion toward the twin-tunnel project supported by the governor.
“This is a historic decision that is good for California — our people, our farms and our natural environment,” Brown said in a statement praising the decision.
Brown wants California water agencies to pay to plan and build two, 35-mile-long (55-kilometer-long) tunnels to divert part of the state’s largest river, the Sacramento, to supply water to the San Francisco Bay Area, the agricultural San Joaquin Valley and Southern California. State water districts had previously balked at the $16 billion total cost of the two tunnels.
The MWD has been the steadiest long-term supporter of either one tunnel or two — saying each project would help secure water for its millions of urban customers.
The Sacramento is the state’s biggest river and a vital supplier of fresh water to the San Francisco Bay, part of the largest estuary on the West Coast of the Americas.

Democrats look to censor websites

Democrats are the new Nazis
Thought Police to be set up by the Democrats to tell us which opinions are the "correct" opinions.

(Breitbart California)  -  California State Senator Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) has proposed a bill, the “Online False Information Act,” that would require anyone who posts news on the Internet to verify their information through “fact-checkers.”

The bill, filed quietly in late February as SB 1424, requires all California-based websites to develop a plan to fight “fake news,” to use “fact-checkers,” and to warn readers — including via social media — of “false information.”
The bill reads as follows:
Title 14.5 (commencing with Section 3085) is added to Part 4 of Division 3 of the Civil Code, to read:
TITLE 14.5. False Information Strategic Plans
(a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.
(b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:
(1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.
(2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.
(3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.
(4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
(c) As used in this section, “social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles or locations.
The bill would arguably impose onerous costs on individuals and businesses alike, and would serve as a tool for censorship by subjecting dissenting opinions to review via “fact-checkers.”
It is not clear who would appoint the “fact-checkers.”
Currently, Facebook uses fact-checkers approved by the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), an organization run by the Poynter Institute, which in turn is funded, in part, by George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and other liberal organizations.

Poll puts Republican John Cox in 2nd place in governor's race

If not for Cox the GOP would simply hand the Governorship to the Democrats

  • A new poll puts Republican John Cox of Rancho Santa Fe in second place in the governor’s race.
  • If that position holds, he could emerge from the June “top two” primary to face off with a Democrat in the general election.
  • A Republican on the ballot could help GOP candidates down-ballot in November.
(San Diego Union Tribune)  -  Republican businessman John Cox has moved into second place in the race for California governor, taking a slight lead over former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat, according to a poll released Wednesday evening.
The new standings suggests the likelihood of two Democrats facing each other in November under California’s “top two” runoff system is diminishing.
Cox, from Rancho Santa Fe, has support from 14 percent of likely voters, according to research from the Public Policy Institute of California. That puts him well behind Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, who had 28 percent. Cox is just ahead of Villaraigosa, who polled at 12 percent, down 9 percentage points over the past three months. The top two candidates in the June primary will advance to the general election, regardless of party.

“It corrects the erroneous presumption that many people have seen in the media that it will somehow be two Democrats” in the general election, Cox said by phone on Thursday. “I don’t think that was ever in the cards. That happened in the 2016 Senate race because there was no major Republican who had any major funding whatsoever.”
With nearly seven weeks until vote-by-mail balloting begins, and even longer until the June 5 primary, the poll also found 24 percent of voters don’t know who they’ll support.
Cox has made significant headway in the governor’s race since January, when a PPIC poll showed him with 7 percent support and narrowly behind Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach, who was polling at 8 percent.
The campaign for second place is now a “coin-toss race.” Of the two Republicans, Cox has money that makes him GOP’s best shot at finishing in the top-two in the primary, said former San Diego Councilman Carl DeMaio, now a conservative talk radio host.
“Nobody knows who Travis Allen is either, but he’s broke,” DeMaio said.
DeMaio and Cox are working together on an effort to repeal a recent increase in the state gas tax to fund transportation projects.
Cox, who made a fortune through a law firm he started and in real estate, put $3 million of his own money into his campaign last year and also raised $518,446 from donors. He said in January he’ll put in at least $1 million more.

Good. Cox is gaining ground, but there is still no GOP candidate for U.S. Senate.

Californians Speak Out Against Communism

The People's Republic
We are already moving to one-party elections. There are only Democrats on the ballot for U.S. Senate and what Republicans there are running for Governor are so pathetic and weak that they almost do not register in polls.
