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."

POLICE STATE - Homeland Security seized Stockton Mayor's electronics at airport

Airport security in America

4th Amendment Be Damned
  • In violation of the Bill of Rights the Feds seized the electronics of the Mayor of Stockton, California without a warrant. 

(Infowars News)  -  Anthony Silva, the mayor of Stockton, California, recently went to China for a mayor’s conference. On his return to San Francisco airport he was detained by Homeland Security, and then had his two laptops and his mobile phone confiscated
They refused to show him any sort of warrant (of course) and then refused to let him leave until he agreed to hand over his password:
“A few minutes later, DHS agents confiscated all my electronic devices including my personal cell phone. Unfortunately, they were not willing or able to produce a search warrant or any court documents suggesting they had a legal right to take my property. In addition, they were persistent about requiring my passwords for all devices,” Silva said.
Silva was not allowed to leave the airport until he gave his passwords to the agents, which the mayor’s personal attorney, Mark Reichel, claimed is illegal.
The mayor said the agents told him confiscating property from travelers at the airport was “in fact routine and not unusual,” and promised to return the items within a few days.
To some extent what the DHS told him is true. It’s not that unusual, but it’s not that common either. But forcing him to turn over the passwords is unusual, and not standard practice. Besides, courts have been growing increasingly less impressed with Homeland Security’s willingness to ignore the Constitution at the border.
The feds, of course, refuse to say anything, saying they cannot confirm or deny anything. Silva first claimed that he’s “happy to cooperate and comply with these inspection procedures if they are in fact routine and legal,” but pretty quickly notes how ridiculous all of this is:
“I think the American people should be extremely concerned about their personal rights and privacy,” he said. “As I was being searched at the airport, there was a Latino couple to my left, and an Asian couple to my right also being aggressively searched. I briefly had to remind myself that this was not North Korea or Nazi Germany. This is the land of the Free.”
So they keep telling us.

Santa Monica - The Drunkest City in California

Santa Monica Ranks #1 for Drunkenness 

(From Road Snacks)  -  Is there anything wrong with being called the drunkest city in your state?
Especially in California, which is right in the middle in the nation in terms of the amount of beer and spirits every year. So someone has to pick up the slack, right? And boy do these cities below.
How do you decide how much a place drinks? By the number of available places to buy booze, and by how often people are talking about drinking, that’s how.
Plus, we thought why not add in a stereotype? Studies have indicated that when one or both partners in a marriage are alcoholics, that couple is three times more likely to divorce.
So, hold our beers and watch this. After analyzing all cities with a decent amount of people in them, we came up with this list as The Drunkest Cities in California:
  1. Santa Monica
  2. Santa Barbara
  3. Napa
  4. Pasadena
  5. Sacramento
  6. Newport Beach
  7. Oakland
  8. Livermore
  9. San Mateo
  10. El Cajon

To Alcohol! The cause of... and solution to... all of life's problems.

What drunken criteria did we use?

  • Number of bars and pubs per capita
  • Number of wineries per capita
  • Number of liquor stores per capita
  • Each city’s drunk related tweets within the last week
  • Each city’s divorce rate
For geo-located tweets, we measured the following raw number of tweets that came from within a city’s general area: #Drunk, #Party, #Beer, #Wine and #Cocktails
Note: For the sake of getting reliable numbers, we counted places within a city’s border, as well as within a short driving distance.

Population: 90,008
Divorce rate: 12.6%
Bars per capita: 1st in CA
Liquor stores per capita: 4th
Wow, Santa Monica, you are tore up from the floor up! Based on the data and number of raw tweets coming from your location, per capita, it sounds like the people there are all having a really, really good time.
There are more bars per capita in Santa Monica than anywhere else in the state. And the divorce rate is the 7th highest in California, too. That’s a sign that lots and lots of people here are drinking quite often.
And, there are tons of liquor stores in the area, too. If you’ve ever spent some time at the Santa Monica pier, you’d know that there are lots of drunk, homeless people everywhere. So it’s not just the ‘residents’ of Santa Monica who are drinking lots and lots every night.
It wasn’t even close. It was Santa Monica by a landslide and then everyone else below.

Calif. Indian Tribe Backs School's ‘Redskins’ Mascot

More Phony, Made-up, "Racism"
  • The Leftist Democrats in the legislature will never rest until all the joy is sucked out of life and students are forced to memorize politically correct slogans.

(Breitbart News)  -  An Indian tribe in California supports a local school’s use of the “Redskins” mascot that California legislators want to ban.

The Tule River Tribal Council, located in the heart of California’s Central Valley, wrote a letter to California Gov. Jerry Brown urging him to allow Tulare Union High School to continue using the “Redskins” mascot.
Brown is considering signing a new bill, AB 30, the California Racial Mascots Act, which was recently passed by the state legislature in the wake of media debate surrounding the name of the Washington Redskins NFL football team.
The tribe’s letter to the governor argues that while “the history surrounding the name ‘Redskin’ is negative…it is time to mend these feelings and move on.” The tribal council supports the school’s use of the mascot to express “tremendous pride and honor” felt by “students and alumni.” The letter adds: “Although we will never forget what has happened to us in the past, we do not wish to dwell on it either.” 
The school district has also written to the governor to oppose the bill. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar bill in 2004.

Pansy Liberals and "Racism"
To frighten mouth-breather voters that everyone is a "racist" and out to get
them, liberals have to created phony issues that do not exist.
Sports teams naturally choose strong names for the players:  Rams,
Mustangs, Vikings or Redskins.  The names are a form of praise
and honor, not racism.

"Racism" - Garden Grove settles lawsuit, will move to district elections

Garden Grove Mayor Bao Nguyen
Hispanic Leftists say the "wrong" race won office.

Phony Cries of "Racism"
  • Racist Hispanic leftist groups take cities to court because the voters dared to elected councilmen of the wrong race to office.
  • The same nonsense happened in Palmdale where the "evil" racist voters dared to elect an African American Councilman instead of a Hispanic.

GARDEN GROVE (Orange County Register)  –  The City Council upended how residents will select its members Friday night, doing away with an independently elected mayor and opting to create five voting districts.
The changes will go into effect in November 2016.
The City Council approved district elections as part of a settlement agreement with Rick Montoya, a former council candidate who argued the at-large system – where the entire city votes for each council seat – violates the California Voting Rights Act and essentially disenfranchises Latino voters.
The city also has to pay $290,000 to Montoya for lawyer’s fees and other litigation costs.
District elections, which are becoming increasingly common throughout California, are viewed by many as a way to give Latinos a more prominent – and, some say, fairer – role in local government.

Garden Grove, which became an incorporated city in 1956, is about one-third white, Latino and Asian, but there is no record of a Latino ever being elected to the council. The current council is a majority Vietnamese-American.
“I believe by-district elections will lead to better representation in our government,” said Montoya, who sued the city in July about a month after several Latino-rights organizations threatened to do the same. “And it will lead to more voices being heard.”
Councilman Chris Phan, however, said he is no fan of district elections and it is still too early to know whether district elections will help Latinos get on the City Council.
Councilman Chris Phan
Hispanic Leftists complain because voters
elected the "wrong" race.
“This basically lowers the bar for council candidates,” he said. “No amount of districting can cure an apathetic voting bloc.”
In past elections, residents voted mayors to two-year terms and council members to four-year terms.
Under the settlement, the city will have five districts with each geographic area voting for one council seat. All five seats will have four-year terms.
The City Council will vote among itself to decide who will be mayor.
In 2016, the seats of Mayor Bao Nguyen, Phan and termed-out Councilman Steve Jones will be open.
But first, the city must undertake a months-long process of hiring a demographer to analyze the city’s ethnic, financial, age and geographic fault lines to create the five districts.
Garden Grove will have a series of community meetings before the council votes on the new maps, said City Attorney Omar Sandoval.
“The electoral record of Latinos has been abysmal in Garden Grove,” said Zeke Hernandez, the president of the Santa Ana chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens, which also threatened to sue. “I applaud the City Council for taking this momentous step. I think the city will be better for it.”

Calif. gives 500,000 illegals driver's licenses

Go ahead, break the laws

  • The leftist Sanctuary State of the People's Republic encourages the breaking of immigration and other laws.
  • But the real fools are the mouth-breathing voters who keep paying the taxes and re-electing the open borders Democrats and Republicans.

(Associated Press)  -  California has issued more than half a million driver's licenses to immigrants in the country illegally under a program that began nine months ago.
Armando Botello, a spokesman for the state's Department of Motor Vehicles, said Friday that the milestone was reached last week.
"For us, the DMV, it is a source of great pride to have reached half a million this soon. We thought we would issue half a million applications per year and we did it in 9 months. This means the DMV work is paying off and that all drivers will be safer now," said Botello.
The state started providing special permits in January, when a law took effect allowing unauthorized immigrants to obtain it with an identification document, proof of residence, and after passing a written and a driving exam.
Because the agency does not ask about race or ethnicity, it is not known how many of the five hundred thousand applicants are Latino. However, Botello said most are Hispanic.
The record number of licenses issued came as a surprise to the agency, which expected to reach the half a million mark by the end of the year, said Botello. According to DMV estimates, there is a total of 1.4 million potential applicants in the state of California.
"We thought we would issue half a million in one year and we did it in nine months. I think it will be difficult that we reach one million in the next nine months because there are fewer people coming to the office," the spokesman said.
The new licenses initially generated huge interest, with long lines at DMV offices in January and February.

California Assembly Speaker to fight for Senate seat

Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins talks with Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León

It's Democrat vs Democrat

  • California elections are pathetic  -  Democrats, backed with corrupt Sacramento special interest cash, dominate a San Diego Senate District even though they have only 36% of the registered voters.
  • Some 36% of the voters are independent or registered in smaller opposition political parties but they get zero representation in Sacramento.  The GOP virtually does not exist.
  • But any calls for truly free and open elections are always blocked by the special interest funded oligarchy in Sacramento.

(Associated Press)  -  California Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins plans to fight a fellow Democrat for a state Senate seat when her tenure expires.
Atkins will fight Marty Block for his San Diego seat next year in a highly unusual challenge that could mean a bruising and potentially costly fight in an otherwise safe district, the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1MiSp7l) reported Saturday.
"Absolutely it makes me uncomfortable," Atkins, D-San Diego, told the newspaper. "Will I be prepared to do it? Absolutely."
Atkins said she is the first speaker from San Diego and has made things happen for the community.
"I think I'm just a better return on investment long-term," she said.
The challenge would have not only regional implications for Democrats but between the Assembly and Senate, which have a simmering rivalry even though both are Democrat-controlled.
"The soon to be ex-speaker knows very well that when one house challenges another, it's a slap in the face of the leader of the challenged house," Block told the Times.
He called it "a direct assault" on Senate leader Kevin De Leon.
In a statement, De Leon declined to say whether he considered Atkins' challenge as an affront but said Block was "an extraordinary senator."
"He deserves to be re-elected and Senate Democrats are resolutely united behind him," De León said.
John Burton, chair of the California Democratic Party, declined to comment, as did an aide to Gov. Jerry Brown, the Times said.
Atkins became Assembly speaker in 2014 and was praised for helping craft a $7.5-billion water bond that voters approved last year. She has had trouble this year in advancing another priority: a bill to expand affordable housing.
Earlier this month, Anthony Rendon, D-Los Angeles, was chosen to succeed her as speaker next year.
Block represents the 39th District, which covers most of San Diego along with Coronado and Del Mar. Democrats hold a large edge in voter registration there.

California GOP says it's ‘pro-immigrant'

Republicans Become Democrats

  • The open borders GOP Congress has done jack shit about immigration since the party took over in 1995.  Now the California Republican Party is just making open borders official.
  • The GOP and the Dems have banned independent candidates and small opposition political parties from all general election ballots.  My protest in the 2014 election was REFUSING TO VOTE for either open borders party for any statewide office.  I left all offices from Governor on down blank and only voted for propositions.

(The Press Enterprise)  -  Not wanting to appear anti-immigrant, the California Republican Party on Sunday softened its platform plank on immigration.
Meeting during their semiannual convention in Anaheim, state Republicans voted on a new immigration stance that states the party is “pro-immigrant” and wants to fix a system that “does not work for California or America.” Under its new platform, the state GOP supports worker visa programs but is against providing amnesty.
Gone is language about “illegal aliens” or cross-deputizing state and county law enforcement to help immediately deport those who have committed crimes.
“We took a common-sense approach. We wanted to make sure the wording doesn’t come across offensively,” said Marcelino Valdez, the Central Valley regional vice chairman who authored the updated immigration plank.
“We’re painted in a light that’s anti-immigrant. We’re far from that,” Valdez said after the convention.
Robin Hvidston, an associate delegate at the Republican convention who voted against the platform changes Sunday, said the Republicans who voted for it do not speak for her or members of her Claremont-based anti-illegal immigration group, We the People Rising.
“The California GOP should have taken a stand that supports legal immigration: enter the U.S.A. legally and then reside legally in the U.S.A. Period,” Hvidston wrote in an email. “I preferred the concrete and specific language in the former California GOP platform. We are a great nation because we are a nation of laws and the California GOP should not be afraid to (uphold) federal law.”
Jorge-Mario Cabrera, spokesman for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, said he welcomed the shift in language and tone of the new platform.
“It’s a smart move on their part to attract new voters,” Cabrera said.
Valdez said: “We’re absolutely trying to reach the Latino vote.”
The new California Republican platform includes support for stronger border control, higher penalties for overstaying visas and denying federal funding to sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration officials.

The Calif. GOP which represents no one will meet less often

GOP - A Meaningless Political Party

  • Wow, the corrupt California GOP, which does not represent any voters at all, will now meet less often.
  • The so-called "delegates" to the California GOP convention are appointed by political insiders.  The average Republican voter has no say in any way, shape or form about the direction of his own political party.

(Sacramento Bee)  -  The California Republican Party will gather to pour drinks and talk politics a little less frequently from now on.
Party activists on Sunday approved reducing the number of state party conventions to two annually in odd-numbered years and one annually in even-numbered years, eliminating its convention closest to the general election.
The party has historically held two conventions every year.
Party Chairman Jim Brulte has long argued for a lighter convention schedule.
He said in an email to party leaders last year that conventions are costly and can be unhelpful late in the election cycle, when “the press come looking to write the narrative that Republicans are fighting.”
Many staffers and politicians are busy campaigning during conventions close to elections. But conventions remain popular with the party’s rank-and-file activists, and the vote to reduce the convention schedule was divided.

California's Counties
Building a Real Political Party
If the Republican leadership has any interest at all in building a grass roots party, which they don't, they would totally scrap the corrupt state party system that serves only insiders and big money special interest groups.
One obvious reform would be to hold mini GOP conventions in each of California's 58 counties.  Registered Republicans could gather to openly debate the issues of the day and elect delegates to represent their county at the state convention.  These conventions could be held all over the state on the same day to generate maximum publicity with TV news and newspapers.
Transparent conventions would show a Republican Party open to all voters, and that is why this reform will never happen.  The corrupt Elites have no interest in their own voters.

How Donald Trump is rebuilding the California Republican Party

The easiest way to tell whether you’re in California or New Hampshire is to walk into a coffee shop. If you don’t see a presidential candidate, you’re in California.
Our state’s presidential primary in June usually takes place in what the NBA calls “garbage time,” that final few minutes of play after the outcome is beyond any doubt.
But 2016 could be different.
On Wednesday, 15 Republican candidates for president were at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for two televised debates. An astounding 23 million people watched the CNN telecast, making it the No. 10 cable TV show of all time, behind eight college football games on ESPN and the GOP debate last month on Fox.
CNN’s previous ratings record for a presidential debate was set on Jan. 31, 2008, when an average of 8.3 million viewers tuned in. On Wednesday, even the early debate for four low-polling candidates drew an audience of over 6 million people.
The reason for the skyscraping ratings, of course, is Donald Trump. “Will they send me flowers?” he tweeted on Thursday.
“Trump deserves a lot of credit” for drawing tens of millions of viewers to the debates, said Shawn Steel, who represents California on the Republican National Committee. “Some candidates would give up organs for coverage like that.”
“Trump has brought a whole new dynamic to the Republican brand,” Steel said, by attracting alienated voters, independents and Democrats.
“His poll numbers in the African-American community are better than any Republican’s in the past 50, maybe 70 years,” Steel said. “And in the Latino community, where you might expect that he’d be polling at 5 percent, he’s at 25 percent. That’s Gallup. It’s quite a shocker.”
Steel said it’s evidence of illegal immigration’s “impact on working folks,” including Latinos who are legal immigrants. “You can’t dismiss it,” he said.
California Republican Party chairman Jim Brulte said during a break between the debates Wednesday that the GOP candidates are “head and shoulders above what the Democrats have to offer.” RNC committeeman Shawn Steel called the field the “finest quality candidates in our lifetime.“
They’re getting a good long look from the voters, courtesy of Donald Trump. According to Nielsen data, millions of people who never watched a presidential debate before are watching now.
Could California’s political landscape be affected if new voters register in the Republican party to cast a vote for Trump, Rubio, Fiorina or another candidate in the GOP primary?

2016: Sanchez vs Harris in Senate race, no Republican on the ballot

Harris and Sanchez

A runoff with two Leftists?

  • The massively corrupt California election system could have two Leftist Democrats face off against each other in the 2016 general election.
  • The Dems & GOP have rigged the "elections" so all independent and small political party candidates are banned from general election ballots.

(Los Angeles Times)  -  State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris is holding her lead in the race to succeed Barbara Boxer in the U.S. Senate, but strong support among Latinos has enabled Rep. Loretta Sanchez of Orange County to establish herself as a serious rival, according to a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll.

The survey found Harris leading Sanchez, a fellow Democrat, 26% to 17% among registered voters, followed by former state Republican chairman Tom Del Beccaro, with 10%, and Assemblyman Rocky Chavez (R-Oceanside), with 9%.

Former state Republican Party leader George "Duf" Sundheim entered the race last week, too late for inclusion in the poll.

The primary election is in June, and it is far from settled: More than a third of voters were undecided, and more candidates could still emerge.

Regardless of party, the contestants who finish first and second will advance to a November 2016 runoff.

"Unless the Republicans coalesce behind one single candidate, we will probably end up seeing a runoff between two Democrats," said poll director Dan Schnur, who leads USC's Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics.

Sundheim's arrival could further fracture the Republican vote and deepen the party's disadvantage in a state dominated by Democrats.

Latino voters are a crucial foundation for Sanchez, the survey found: They favor her over Harris 34% to 18%. People who took the survey in Spanish are her strongest constituency; more than half of them support Sanchez, a daughter of Mexican immigrants.
