Well, I have to agree with Republican California State Rep. Tom McClintock. The California dems are batsh!t crazy. Reparations for slaves they never had?
They just have to keep finding ways to separate us by race. And what comes after reparations? Because you know if they somehow get this done, it won’t end there. However I can’t, at this time, think of anything dumber than this. I know they’ll come up with something, but I can’t imagine what it will be.
from the Blaze:
California — a state that never practiced slavery — moves forward with slavery reparations plan
California — which entered the union as a free state in 1850 — is moving forward with plans to implement slavery reparations for black Americans.
On Tuesday, a first-of-its-kind task force charged with studying the issue and developing proposals for redress convened for its inaugural meeting, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The task force is the result of a bill signed last year by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom that required members to draft a formal apology to black Americans and come up with various financial remedies for the lingering effects of discriminatory practices in the country.
“As our country reckons with our painful legacy of racial injustice, California again is poised to lead the way towards a more equitable and inclusive future for all,” Newsom said at the meeting.
California Democratic Attorney General Rob Bonta added, “Although the horrors of slavery may have begun in the past, its harms are felt every single day by Black Americans in the present.”

So a California High School English teacher is pitching a fit over parents and students wondering when they can come back to school.
First of all – I’m surprised she’s employed at all. I wasn’t aware they taught English in California anymore.
And second, like all unhinged leftists, this woman doesn’t take kindly to questioning of any sort and at anytime. read more

There are a couple of sayings (at least) that are oft repeated, but bear repeating yet again. No matter how “woke” you think you are, you will never be woke enough, and, leftists will always invent something to fight against – they must always have an antagonist boogeymen.
And the following article from Daily Wire / Conservative Review proves both points once again.
It’s not bad enough that some retail outlets like Target began the policy of men dressed as women being able to use the ladies/girls in-store restrooms and changing rooms. No, now, in California, legislation has been proposed that not only forces retailers to designate “gender-free” shopping areas for children – toys, clothes, etc. – but proposes fining those non-conforming retailers.
Is it wrong to pray that California breaks off from the other contiguous 47 and floats out into the Pacific? read more
Sabo Street Art Calls Out California, L.A. Coronavirus Lockdown Overreach
The Los Angeles street artist known as Sabo is no fan of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and has plastered the L.A. area with posters depicting the Democrat governor as a character out of American Psycho.
Sabo put up his latest street art series in Venice Beach, Hollywood, and other high-traffic destinations around L.A. County. One poster shows Gov. Newsom as the Christian Bale character from the 2000 movie American Psycho, renamed “California Psycho.” read more
Always wanted a home, but can’t afford one? Well it’s your lucky day. Just move to California, find a vacant house and squat in it. It doesn’t matter whether someone else “owns” it. If you want it, it’s apparently your “fundamental human right” to have it.
from the American Spectator:
Taking Property for Fun and Profit
Oakland rewards squatting while Los Angeles officials want to use eminent domain to seize apartments. Investors ought to run for the hills.
After a group of homeless moms simply moved into a vacant three-bedroom house in Oakland owned by a company that invests in local real estate, local progressives turned them into folk heroes. These women weren’t squatters who took something that wasn’t theirs, but valiant protesters who were standing up for their communities against — all together now — corporate speculators. read more

California’s LGBT Agenda
California lawmakers passed a resolution this month telling “religious groups” — including Christian pastors and churches — to “embrace” the LGBTQ worldview, even if it contradicts the moral values of those religious groups.
Acceptance and tolerance are no longer enough. And so-called conversion therapy should not be allowed. So say the leftists who run California.
Virginia to be pushing for Gun Confiscation
Now that voters have seen fit to turn Virginia blue, the Governor and legislature is wasting no time reintroducing 8 anti-guns bills. Among them will be to confiscate assault weapons (to start) and the infamous Red Flag law.
Congratulations Virginia – you get what you deserve. read more

We’ve all heard by now that President Trump is proposing to take away “California’s power to set its own vehicle tailpipe emissions standards, escalating an environmental dispute that has trapped auto makers in the middle.”
This move by Trump is reported to be in conjunction with a rollback of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards.
To date, all of California emission standards restrictions eclipse those of the federal government.
If you are unfamiliar, Corporate Average Fuel Economy(CAFE) Standards are regulations, first enacted by the United States Congress in 1975, after the 1973–74 Arab oil embargo, to improve the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks (trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles) produced for sale in the United States. read more

Washington D.C. wants to become the 51st State to enter the Union. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office evidently commissioned the production of 140 American flags, with 51 stars.
For those of you in Rio Linda (h/t: Rush Limbaugh) our flag has but 50 stars, representing the 50 current States. (You never know who will read this)
The 140 flags were strategically placed along Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and Capital Hill to celebrate the upcoming hearing.
“The hearing, planned for Thursday, will be the first full committee hearing on a District statehood bill since 1993,” writes the Washington Examiner.
Personally, I wouldn’t support such an initiative, just on the mere observation of who is in favor it. Leftist groups like the ACLU, and co-sponsors like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Tom Carper of Delaware. Anything that garners this much support from leftists is no good for America. You can bank on that. read more
And of course we know it’s not free. Nothing is free. Oh, it’ll be free for illegals. But someone will have to pay for it. I wonder who that will be? And I wonder if “legal” immigrants will be granted the same benefit? I doubt it.

CA Voters Not Happy With Free Medical For Illegals
As the California state legislature and Gov. Gavin Newsom dislocate their shoulders in the hearty backslapping of their self-congratulatory moment in American history, the rest of the nation is snarling and spitting over the lunacy of the left coast Democrats. That is, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll, which asked if illegal immigrants should receive free health care.
The answer was a resounding no. No way, no how, nuh-uh, nada. read more
