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."

Just cancel the election and swear in Jerry Brown for a fourth term

Just Call Off The Election
  • I mean really, why bother?  Jerry Brown is going to be Governor next year so the Republicans should just give up now and go on a nice vacation.  It would be time better spent.

Here we are, another election for Governor of the People's Republic.  I for one don't want to listen to more political ads for a race that is over before it starts.

Comrade Jerry will sail through to November basically ignoring his GOP opponent.

Personally I like Assemblyman Tim Donnelly.  He is the real deal and is not afraid to speak out, but the corrupt money interests that own the GOP have no interest in funding him.  As for Neel Kashkari, I have to ask who??? and who cares?  I have nothing against Neel, but what has he done in his life to merit being elected Governor of the largest state?

In any case we appear to be off to the races.

Neel Kashkari

Neel Kashkari raised more than $900,000 in the first two weeks of his gubernatorial campaign, the first significant fundraising burst from any Republican.

Kashkari's campaign announced Wednesday that the former U.S. Treasury Department official had raised $976,000 since announcing his candidacy last month. Kashkari has filed campaign statements showing contributions of just under $915,000. The campaign said the balance consists of checks less than $5,000 that are not yet required to be reported says the Fresno Bee.

Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and his wife, Wendy, each contributed $27,200, as did billionaire Robert Day, chairman of Trust Company of the West, and each of Kashkari's parents, Chaman and Sheila. Slightly more than two-thirds of the total amount raised came from California donors. Many of the contributors are members of the financial industry, including employees of Goldman Sachs, where Kashkari previously worked.

Kashkari raised fundraising expectations by saying before he announced his candidacy that he had met with hundreds of potential donors, and his campaign promoted his earnings in a news release just before filing contribution reports with the state.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly

Donnelly, a Twin Peaks Assemblyman, raised less than $375,000 in 2013 and ended the year with only $54,299 in cash on hand.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly dismissed the nearly $1 million his GOP rival Neel Kashkari raised in the two weeks since entering the race, saying that the former U.S. Treasury official is too similar to incumbent Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown to offer a real contrast for voters.

“I don’t think he has a chance. I don’t care if he raises $10 million, I just don’t think he has a chance,” Donnelly said in an interview Wednesday evening. “Why would people go for a Jerry Brown copy when they could have the real thing?”

“Campaigns are not about raising money. Campaigns are about raising votes,” Donnelly said. “If you look at what happened to Meg Whitman in 2010, there was no limit to money, but the message was not a message that inspired.”

The Bald Commie Bastard

Comrade Governor Jerry Brown has amassed $17 million from a well of donors including Exxon Mobil, Facebook, Microsoft and even porn mogul Larry Flynt for a re-election campaign without saying he plans to run.

Campaign finance records show Brown's stockpile already amounts to more than New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, R, spent to win office in 2009.

His backers include corporations that are the world's biggest in their fields: Philip Morris International, the top publicly traded tobacco company; Exxon, leading oil producer by market value; Facebook, operator of the social-networking service; retailer Wal-Mart Stores; software maker Microsoft, and planemaker Boeing reports the Chicago Tribune.

The governor has also been showered with donations from unions, American Indian tribes that own casinos and some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Steven Spielberg, director of "Jaws," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."

"Thousands of Californians -- businesses, unions, individuals and others -- have made contributions, large and small, to Governor Brown over the years," spokesman Evan Westrup said in a statement. "The governor's focus is doing what's best for California. That's what informs his decisions."

Campaign records show donations to Brown from companies such as Nike, Occidental Petroleum, eBay, Walt Disney Co., Sony Pictures Entertainment, Comcast, PG&E, Abbott Laboratories, Pfizer, Anheuser-Busch, Google and Gap where his wife, Anne Gust Brown, was chief administrative officer.

Aside from the state Democratic Party, which funneled $3 million to Brown since December 2012, Brown's biggest contributors are unions, such as those for prison guards, teachers and nurses. They poured $6 million into his political war chest from 2006 through 2012, a tenth of the money he raised during that time, according to public records and the Institute on Money in State Politics.

2010 was a landslide Republican year all across the
U.S. and the GOP candidate with all the money in the
world lost in a California Democrat landslide.
