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."

California audit finds the state is broke

(The Center Square) – California just filed its 2021-2022 audited financial statement, 350 days past the filing deadline. In its filing, the state admits that COVID-era unemployment fraud cost the state $29 billion that must be paid back to the federal government, and that in 2022, the state had $256 billion more in liabilities than it had in unrestricted resources.

After accounting for restricted resources, such as purpose-specific state trust funds and bonds, the state still owed $55 billion more than it had.

California currently faces a $73 billion deficit for the 2024-2025 fiscal year, to which the Democratic legislature has responded with a proposal to cut this year’s budget by $2.1 billion and a proposal to spend $12 billion, or half the state’s rainy day fund. 

With the state reducing 2023 jobs growth from 325,000 to just 50,000, revenues are likely to be much lower than expected. 

With a significant expansion of benefits, including expanding taxpayer-funded MediCal to all illegal immigrants, and a major shift in illegal immigration from heavily-enforced Texas to California instead, state expenditures could end up being higher than expected.

School District Pays Children $1,400 To Become ‘Racial And Social Justice Warriors’

Liberalism is a Mental Disorder

The Long Beach Unified School district in California is funneling money to a progressive activist group which is paying students $1,400 each to become racial and social justice warriors.

The district paid $900,000 for a one-year contract to Californians for Justice (CFJ), a “youth-powered” non-profit that pushes racial justice ideology on children, the Free Press reports.

Of that, $60,200 was allocated to pay 33 students and 10 families or parents $1,400 each to participate in CFJ’s training programs.

According to the contract, the program exists to “provide assistance to teachers, administrators and selected students in building strategies to support cultural understanding and change.”

On CFJ’s website, the group claims to have “trained hundreds of youth of color in Long Beach to be community leaders and organizers,” adding that it “provides leadership development opportunities throughout the school year and summer to ensure our youth leaders gain the political education and valuable organizing skills they need to lead social justice movements.”

“It’s so fun! You get paid good, you can have a fun time,” one of the students posted recently to Instagram.

A spokesman for the Long Beach School District framed the paid program as “internships” which are to ensure “equitable participation in CFJ programs, embracing diverse perspectives in education.” Quite diversity word salad there.

For the first time ever, In-N-Out closes one of its stores

In-N-out is closing its only Oakland location because of "ongoing issues with crime," the company said Tuesday.

While several locations have been relocated, the company has never closed a location in its 75-year history.

"We feel the frequency and severity of the crimes being encountered by our customers and associates leave us no alternative," Chief Operating Officer Denny Warnick said in a statement Tuesday.

The location near Oakland International Airport has been open for almost two decades and will officially shutter its doors March 24.

“Despite taking repeated steps to create safer conditions, our customers and associates are regularly victimized by car break-ins, property damage, theft and armed robberies,” Warnick said.

The restaurant “remains a busy and profitable” location, but In-N-Out’s top priority is its employees and customers, Warnick said.

"We cannot ask them to visit or work in an unsafe environment," Warnick said.

A host of businesses have closed in Oakland and cited crime as the reason, including a Raising Cane’s that closed its dining room in March, NBC Bay Area reported. Oakland police have increased patrols and cameras to help combat crime, according to the outlet.

All employees affected by the In-N-Out closure will be able to transfer to nearby In-N-Out locations or seek a severance package.

Democrats Spent $4 Million On Sexually Mutilating Prisoners


Liberal Insanity
Democrats are obsessed with slicing off the breasts of women and young girls and the testicles of men and young boys.

(Zerohedge)  California is helping prison inmates cope with their stints, having forked over more than $4 million of taxpayer funds on surgical sex changes and cosmetic "gender-affirming" enhancements for 157 inmates, including four who are on death row, the Washington Free Beacon reports

Breaking it down, the state has coughed up:

  • Over $4 million for vaginoplasties

  • $180,000 for breast implants

  • $184,141 on facial feminization surgeries

  • $224,000 on laser hair removal

  • The state has spent over $1 million removing the breasts of female prisoners

"People who think they're transgender have rights, and they should be treated with dignity and respect, but it does not include taxpayer dollars being used to do surgeries that are experimental at best and scientifically unjustified at worst," said attorney Harmeet Dhillon, who has represented California inmates.

California's lack of guardrails for trans-identifying prisoners stands in sharp contrast to its rules around inmate dental care, for instance, which don't allow for root canals on back teeth, cosmetic tooth restoration or replacement, or treatment of oral ulcers—among other services.

From 2017 through mid-July 2023, taxpayers have bankrolled at least 157 transgender procedures and treatments, spending nearly $2.5 million on vaginoplasties—the creation of artificial vaginas and vulvas—for 35 male prisoners, according to previously unreported records obtained by women's prison advocate Amie Ichikawa and reviewed by the Free Beacon.

Four people on death row have received sex reassignment surgery.

Meanwhile, corrections officials have requested nearly $2.2 million in new funds just for transgender care, according to budget documents.

Every store is CLOSED in Berkeley

Welcome to Marxist Poverty
and Homelessness

Leftists have no clue how to create wealth.  All they know is how to shut down businesses, send middle class jobs to China and steal money through taxes.
