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."

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.

Loon Leftist Democrats Move Even More Left

The March to Marxism

  • With no Republican candidates for Governor or U.S.Senator there is nothing to stop the Marxists from turning California into Venezuela.

(San Francisco Chronicle)  -  Progressive Democrats are flexing their political muscles in California, pushing hard for their increasingly liberal agenda and doing their best to shove aside any candidates who could be viewed as moderates in one of the nation’s bluest states.

“Young, diverse, progressive candidates are how we’re going to win in California, not through milquetoast corporate Democrats,” said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. “Voters are fed up with the current system and want to know someone will challenge the rigged political system and rigged economic system.”

But for Democrats desperate to flip conservative-leaning congressional districts now held by Republicans, there’s concern that the party’s move to the left may be taking them where most California voters don’t want to go.

A January statewide poll of 1,000 residents done by the Public Policy Institute of California found that only 18 percent of California’s likely voters identified themselves as “very liberal,” compared with 31 percent who styled themselves as “middle of the road.” Among only Democrats, the progressive number rose only to 28 percent.

Progressives showed their power as their delegates blocked what typically would have been a routine endorsement for 25-year Sen. Dianne Feinstein and pushed former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa into fourth spot in the party’s endorsement for governor, despite recent polls showing him running a close second to Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Democrat Senator resigns under threat of expulsion

California Has More Than Their Fair Share

(San Francisco Chronicle)  -  Under the threat of becoming the first lawmaker to be expelled from the state Senate in more than 100 years, Democrat Sen. Tony Mendoza resigned Thursday after a Senate investigation found that he had engaged in unwanted sexual advances toward subordinate female staffers over the past 12 years.
In a letter to his fellow senators, Mendoza said he stepped down because he refused to participate “in the farcical investigation” pushed by his former roommate Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles. He accused de León, who’s challenging U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein in the November election, of seeking his removal to score political points with the #MeToo movement.
Mendoza, a Democrat from Artesia (Los Angeles County), is the third legislator to resign in three months following accusations of sexual harassment.
The former elementary school teacher had been on paid leave since Jan. 3 during a sexual harassment investigation that found he “more likely than not” engaged in unwanted sexual advances toward subordinate female staffers over the past 12 years. His resignation takes effect immediately.
“It’s my duty as president of this body to say that we owe every employee that basic guarantee that we as an institution will not tolerate harassment nor sweep it under the rug when it is discovered,” de León said from the Senate floor.

GOP Voter Registration in Collapse

GOP And California
Goes Down The Drain

  • Republican voter registration is in free fall. The party is not even running a candidate for U.S. Senate and its highest ranking candidate for Governor get a pitiful 8% in the polls.

(Los Angeles Times)  -  As the June 5 primary election approaches, Democrats still dominate California's voting rolls and the percentage of independent voters continues to rise, according to new figures provided by the secretary of state's office.

Just shy of a quarter of the state's voters now forgo any party label, registering as "no party preference," a slight increase from last year. If the trend continues, as expected, California's pool of independent voters could soon surpass the number of Republicans in the state.

Democrats account for 45% of California's registered voters, giving the party a 19 percentage point advantage over the GOP, the state registration figures show.

The Democratic Party's slice of the electorate in non-presidential election cycles has remained relatively stagnant for two decades, while the Republican Party's registration slipped by 10 percentage points.

The percentage of independents, meanwhile, has more than doubled since 1997.

Paul Mitchell, who runs the data firm Political Data Inc., said California could have more independent voters than Republicans by the November general election.

Voter registration trends for Democrats, while better, are not exactly rosy. Mitchell said more and more millennials, college students, young Latinos and Asian Americans are registering as independents.

"Democrats are celebrating Republicans losing registration. But they should be mourning," Mitchell said. "This new registrant population looks like Democrats but they are registering as independents."

Democrats continue to hold a firm grasp on most of Southern California, though the region has a fair number of Republican pockets.

Democrats dominate the electorate in Los Angeles County — home to 1 out of 5 voters in the state — and hold majorities in Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Imperial and Ventura counties.

Republicans hold only Orange County, home to four Republican-held congressional districts won by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Democrats hope to wrest most of them from GOP control, a pivotal piece of the party's strategy to win back control of the House in November.

Republicans have a 3-percentage-point advantage over the Democrats in Orange County. Ten years ago, the GOP had a 10-percentage-point advantage.

Here's how they break down by party:
Democratic Party: 44.63%
Republican Party: 25.44%
No Party Preference: 24.95%
American Independent Party: 2.66%
Libertarian Party: 0.74%
Green Party: 0.48%
Peace and Freedom Party: 0.40%

Don’t give Southern California control of Delta water

The Sacramento Delta

Jerry Brown Rapes the Sacramento Delta
"I'm not willing to sacrifice my land for somebody growing cotton in the desert."   - - - Chuck Baker, Delta Farmer

EDITOR  -  Without a vote of the people Democrat Jerry Brown wants to send millions of gallons of water from the beautiful Sacramento Delta to Central and Southern California to grow cotton, build new homes and water golf courses.

(Mercury News)  -  Seven years into Jerry Brown’s final tour as governor, his promise to create a reliable water delivery system that protects the health of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is in shambles. His twin-tunnel fixation was ill-conceived and, for Northern California at least, unacceptable, and he is not giving up.
His administration is expected to announce a new strategy soon that should alarm South Bay and East Bay residents, businesses and water system operators.
The Associated Press reports that the governor is considering removing control of design, construction and operation of any Delta project from the state Department of Water Resources and giving it to the water agencies that pay for it. This means any Delta water conveyance project would be largely driven by Southern California’s Metropolitan Water District.
Metropolitan is the largest supplier of treated water in the United States, serving 19 million people in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura counties. Its thirst is unquenchable.  Doug Obegi, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council, warns that “we’ve seen Metropolitan promote junk science before. Ceding control to them is a recipe for problems.”
Burt Wilson, of Sacramento, who worked to oppose the 1982 peripheral canal plan, joined others in a protest against a plan announced by Gov. Jerry Brown to build a giant twin tunnel system to move water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to farmland and cities. 

It would indicate that the state is not managing its water resources on behalf of all Californians but only of water districts buying into his twin-tunnel plan.
Intensifying concerns is Brown’s choice this month of Karla Nemeth to run the state Department of Water Resources, which manages the California State Water Project and is supposed to manage and protect the state’s waterways.
Nemeth is married to Tom Philp, a Metropolitan senior strategist, but that’s just part of the conflict. The bigger concern is Nemeth’s own connections to Metropolitan, which paid her salary for two years when when she worked for the California Resources Agency.
This could solidify Met’s ability to speed water south from the Delta.
The governor also is likely to announce that the $17 billion plan for two massive tunnels under the Delta will be scaled back initially to a single tunnel at around half the price. But it will be framed as a project in phases, leaving the prospect of a second tunnel still very much alive. Metropolitan, with its support from the state water resources department, can declare victory.
Six years ago Sen. Dianne Feinstein called on the National Academy of Sciences to study the Delta because the agency “is the only body whose views will be respected by all the relevant parties as a truly independent voice.”
The Academy concluded that the best approach to reduce demand for Delta water was pursuing more efficient water use. It said pouring more water, not less, through the Delta to San Francisco Bay was the best way to preserve its health.
Brown’s interests are clear: Send water south. We’ll be looking carefully at his would-be successors to see who will stand up for the Delta — and for Northern California’s economy and water supply.
