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."

San Diego Backyard Shed Listed for Rent at $1,050 Per Month

Welcome to Insane-ifornia

(KTLA)  -  If you're in the market to rent a home in San Diego, this backyard shed could be yours for a whopping $1,050 a month. Yes, really.
The studio is located in the backyard of a home in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego, which is one of the city's most walkable neighborhoods.
The listing calls the shed a studio, but neighbors aren't exactly convinced.
"I was amazed it was going for that much money," Joe Moreno, who lives nearby the shed, told CNN affiliate KGTV. "Does it have plumbing? I mean, does it have facilities?"
The 200-square-foot studio apartment does have plumbing, an air conditioner, stove and small refrigerator. It doesn't, however, have a washer and dryer or parking, the listing said.
While the rent seems outrageous to some, the asking price is $300 per month less than a typical studio in the area. The company renting out the property, J.D. Property Management, doesn't expect to have an issue with the price, considering the former tenant paid $1,100 a month for two years.
"Maybe it is high for what it is offered at, but the reality is that the square footage and the location is exactly what this market needs," Housing Industry Analyst Alan Nevin told KGTV.
Applicants interested in renting the shed must have a credit score of 650, an income of 2 1/2 times the rental amount, no history of evictions and rental references, according to the listing.

Felons are now “justice-involved persons” in San Francisco

I'm not a convicted felon
I'm a "justice-involved person"

(Fox News)  -  Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as “offender” and “addict” while changing “convicted felon” to “justice-involved person.”

The Board of Supervisors adopted the changes last month even as the city reels from one of the highest crime rates in the country and staggering inequality exemplified by pervasive homelessness alongside Silicon Valley wealth.

The local officials say the new language will help change people’s views about those who commit crimes.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, from now on a convicted felon or an offender released from custody will be known as a “formerly incarcerated person,” or a “justice-involved” person or just a “returning resident.”

A juvenile “delinquent” will now be called a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

And drug addicts or substance abusers, meanwhile, will become “a person with a history of substance use.”

“We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” Supervisor Matt Haney told the newspaper. “We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from.”

The sanitized language, though unlikely to do much to address the crime problem, may result in some convoluted descriptions of crimes in the future.

The newspaper noted an individual whose car has been broken into could well be known to police as “a person who has come in contact with a returning resident who was involved with the justice system and who is currently under supervision with a history of substance use.”

Nearly 84,000 duplicate voter records found

I wonder who the "extra" voters voted for?

California’s ambitious effort to automate voter registration at Department of Motor Vehicle offices produced almost 84,000 duplicate records and more than twice that number with political party mistakes, according to an audit released Friday by state officials.

The analysis covered just the first five months of the new “motor voter” program, which was launched in April 2018. 

It found a wide array of problems with the rollout of the DMV system, including a limited amount of testing as well as inconsistent and confusing lines of communication between the state agencies involved in its creation. Many of the findings align with documents discovered by the Los Angeles Times in an investigation earlier this year of the motor voter program.

Auditors reviewed more than 3 million voter registration files, comparing records from both DMV and California’s secretary of state. They found 83,684 duplicate voter registrations, a mistake attributed to inconsistencies in what was listed for voters’ political party preferences.

“This action resulted in no impact to voter eligibility,” Keely Martin Bosler, director of the state Department of Finance, wrote in a letter on Friday to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Cabinet secretary.

Separately, the audit found additional errors in voter registration related to party preference. Investigators wrote that 171,145 DMV records contained entries indicating a person’s political party but no such “associated designation” within the data received by state elections officials.

Bags of cash to be handed out by Newsom to illegal aliens

California Goes Full Communism

  • The wealth of the workers is to re-distributed by Gavin Marx Newsom to illegal alien law breakers who are citizens of other nations.
  • Free health care, free education, government services, taxpayer funded lawyers and so much more.
  • And the moron voters keep re-electing Leftists and giving away their money.

(KGTV) - Gov. Gavin Newsom’s budget proposal includes a plan to set aside funding for San Diego-based nonprofit groups and other community organizations that are helping migrant families as they arrive at California’s border.

According to the Los Angeles Times , the governor’s plan calls for $20 million to be allocated to migrant services and immigration rapid response programs. If approved, the funding would begin July 2019 and continue for the next three years.

Additionally, Newsom is asking that $5 million be available to address immigration-related emergencies that may occur during the 2018-19 fiscal year.

The LA Times reported a good percentage of the state funding would go to San Diego groups -- collectively known as the San Diego Rapid Response Network -- that provide aid and shelter for asylum-seeking migrants that are allowed legal entry into the U.S. but are then released into the community as they await asylum proceedings.

Many local groups have asked for more help in recent weeks, as thousands of migrants make their way to the border to seek asylum in the U.S.

Earlier this month, the groups’ leaders took the issue directly to the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, and the board voted in favor of putting a plan in place to address the problem.

The governor’s budget proposal also includes a $260 million expansion of Medi-Cal that would provide health coverage for migrants who are young adults and lack legal status in the U.S.

California Readies $1.6B Contract for Design, Construction of 1st High-Speed Rail Segment

19th Century Technology
in the 21st Century

(KTLA)  -  California officials on Tuesday moved toward awarding a $1.65 billion contract to design and construct the tracks and system for the first segment of its beleaguered high-speed rail project.
The action taken by the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s board of directors was a first step in moving ahead with a contract they hope to award by next summer. It’s part of the authorities’ plan to get track up and running in the state’s Central Valley ahead of a 2022 deadline to meet the requirements of federal grants the Trump administration is now trying to take back.
U.S. and international businesses can apply for the contract, and whoever wins it would be responsible for designing and building rail infrastructure along 119 miles in the Central Valley as well as maintaining it for a period that could be as long as 30 years. A U.S. subsidiary of German rail giant Deutsche Bahn AG has already been awarded a $30 million contract for early operation of the trains.
The $1.65 billion is just a sliver of the $79 billion it’s estimated to cost to build a high-speed rail line between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The contractor would design and build all of the necessary infrastructure, including track and systems, signal systems, automatic and positive train control, platforms and overhead electrification systems and voltage stations. The state has already launched construction in the Central Valley on civil work such as building new viaducts and separating roadways from areas for track necessary to prepare for the full high-speed rail system.
California’s rail authority is first trying to finish track between the Central Valley and San Francisco before turning toward Los Angeles. Whoever wins the contract to design and build the first section would be likely to win similar contracts for the entire system from Bakersfield to San Francisco, said Frank Vacca, the project’s chief program manager.
“This contract envisions the successful bidder is guaranteed Bakersfield to San Francisco,” he said.
