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."

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.

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 CaƱada 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.
