From a political satire piece that has way too much basis in reality:

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France’s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

Marie Waldron wrote a piece in the local patch, apparently at the same time as I was roasting her for her love of get out of jail free cards for felons.

Governor Newsom recently created the California Task Force on Business and Jobs Recovery to get the economy growing again as quickly and safely as possible. As Assembly Minority Leader and a small business owner, I was honored to be selected as a member of this critical team.

In between her tweets about “Criminal Justice Reform” – Ms. Waldron tweeted about how honored she was to be a part of Gavin Newsom’s wreck the economy the rest of the way team. It features Tom Steyer as the chairman – which is like asking Jack the Ripper to babysit.

Let me offer the feckless Permanent Minority Leader a suggestion. Leadership means coming up with your own plan to re-open California and demonstrating to the democrats there is a better way. It appears that re framing the message is not just a consultant-driven pipe dream, it is a suicide pact that the entire crew bought in to (save a few exceptions). Waldron’s recent social media efforts indicate that she is attempting to take democrat issues and remake them in some sort of Republican image.

I’ve seen 22 years of failure from party leaders and it appears our current batch have not learned a thing. Rather, they are doubling down on the become democrats to appeal to democrats approach:

While health and safety will come first, the 80-member Task Force will work toward quickly re-opening California’s economy. To accomplish this, the Governor has tapped a broad and experienced group that covers all geographic, business and non-profit sectors. Prominent leaders in business, labor, healthcare, academia and philanthropy are included. The task force Chair is Tom Steyer and includes ex-officio members of former governors Wilson, Davis, Schwarzenegger and Brown, other government officials, and prominent business leaders such as Apple CEO Tim Cook and Disney Executive Chairman Bob Iger. For the complete list, please visit: https://bit.ly/2xPyvEl

The Task Force will develop solutions that reflect the diverse communities that make up California. The recovery must be inclusive so every community, including rural and underserved areas, shares fully in the benefits. Our process will be robust, and we’ll be seeking insightful and practical solutions. Recommendations for reopening will be based on the Governor’s six criteria, available here: https://bit.ly/2S1B5hu

Do laypeople reading this piece by Marie Waldron know what an Ex-Officio Member of a Committee is?

You will also notice the poll-tested pander to diversity and inclusive language that is interspersed with mentions of prominent liberals. I can hardly wait to see our Republican leaders posing for pictures with a man (Tom Steyer) who has spent millions trying to run them (as in Republicans) out of office. Talk about Stockholm Syndrome!

The Coronavirus situation was a GOLDEN opportunity for Republican Leaders to distinguish themselves. Instead we get French Terror level Collaborate.

We held our first meeting last Wednesday. We will divide into 10 sub committees, including small business, technology, work-force and financial, and I am currently reviewing potential committee assignments.

Doesn’t that make you feel AWESOME! She is reviewing potential committee assignments. You can’t work. Your neighbors are getting arrested for going to the beach. You’re getting called a racist, nutjob, and are being physically assaulted over your political beliefs and your party leaders are reviewing potential committee assignments while the State of California has ground to a halt.

No solutions. Just committee assignments, liberal policy positions and loving on Tom Steyer and Gavin Newsom.

Facts From Sac: $200 “No Smoking” Signs…Seriously

The Sacramento Bee’s Andrew Sheeler just posted a story on the state’s decision to spend $200 a pop on “No Smoking” signs for California State Parks.

Here at the Assembly Republican Global Headquarters, we found a way to save more than a $1 million – buy signs from Amazon for $5.75 each.

Taxpayers everywhere, you’re welcome.

Now let’s talk about the fact that CA needs to spend $900k to issue itself a permit.

Ricardo Lara – who would be a great tin-horn dictator in a third world country has introduced SB562, to create single-payer health insurance in California. This is in response to their deep fears of Donald Trump and his evil plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. The real nexus? Government Control and Health Insurance for illegal aliens.

In 2015, Brown signed into law the senator’s Health4All Kids bill, which allocates almost $280 million in the coming fiscal year to cover health care costs for 185,000 undocumented California children up to age 18.

Last year, Brown also signed a Lara bill that would have allowed undocumented Californians to buy insurance through Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, regardless of their immigration status. The legislation would have cost taxpayers little or nothing because the undocumented wouldn’t have been entitled to any government subsidies, and the state filed for a federal waiver under the Affordable Care Act seeking to implement it. But last month, after it was delayed by the Trump administration, Lara withdrew the waiver request.

Lara who is on a roll this cycle also introduced SB29, which basically prevents law enforcement from using independent contractors to help them deal with illegal aliens. And it gets better, if you actually do detail illegal aliens, your records are immediately subject to FOIA requests. This means internal communication (similar to what Obama holdovers are leaking to the press in real time), investigation files and other things law enforcement use to gain advantage in prosecution are now public record. Nice, huh?

SB1 is the $5 Billion Gas Tax Hike. Please also note that the car tax is going up $65 a piece and the mileage tax is in the “study phase” thanks in no small part to State Senator Ted Gaines, a “Republican” who voted yes on the bill to establish the study of the mileage tax. Note that our roads are a mess and the current tax money goes in to the general fund so people like Ricardo Lara can spend it on welfare (and single payer healthcare).

IF you think the Gas Tax will be replaced by the mileage tax, you are insane. The Mileage Tax will be in addition to.

Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez introduced AB250 which is taxpayer subsidized trips to the beach for poor people. Yup, the state is in the hole $100+ Billion with Dams breaking and washed out roads everywhere and the priority is beach trips for the poor.

SB6 and AB3 – both bills would provide taxpayer funded legal assistance for illegal aliens in California to fight against ICE deporting them. Apparently, the psychos in the dem leadership in CA forgot that immigration policy is set by the federal government and neither law would stand up in court. (except maybe in the 9th circus)

In addition to Lara’s bill to expose law enforcement to unlimited civil liability for dealing with illegal aliens, Lara introduced to more bills. One is aimed at preventing construction of the border wall and the other is aimed at preventing a Muslim database. (Which does not exist)

SB179 is the Transgender change-your-drivers-license bill. Apparently, it is just too difficult to change all your legal documents to reflect how you feel about your genitalia as it is in its’ current state. According to Sen. Weiner, (one of the authors) “Our trans brothers and sisters are under attack in far too many parts of this country and this world.” I guess boys in the girl’s locker room is now a civil right. Note – Weiner is the guy’s actual last name.

SB2 – a tax increase on Commercial Real Estate and Rental Properties to pay for low-income housing. Like all of these bills, the money goes in to the general fund and may not be spent on its’ intended purpose (similar to gas taxes and infrastructure funds).

Lest you think bad bills are limited to democrats. Here is one with far less earth-shattering impact: Janet Nguyen wants to make campaign finance filings instantly available under FOIA. This would be especially helpful if you had the ability to go an intimidate donors and/or publicly humiliate Independent Expenditure Funders. This is SB529  It wpudl also give advantage in a campaign to the better funded candidate as the intimidation of donors has an increased effect when their is a perception of one winning versus another.

I am sure I will have an update because the democrats can’t help themselves.

I recently had dinner with a member of the State Assembly. I was told that the Mileage Tax (that was supported by none other than Ted Gaines) is going to become a reality.

I was also told that the VLF increase of $65 is a done deal. A gas tax hike is a done deal.

Splitting Commercial Property and jacking the property taxes looks likely to pass as well. (This is the “Split-Roll” thing people have talked about for years)

There is a so-called “Snack Tax” that is also up for consideration.

If you were not sick enough – I had a friend send me some info:

SB-18, the Nanny State on Acid Bill. This Bill is so broad and so poorly written on purpose that it literally puts the School System and the State of CA in front of parent’s rights for good. Gun groups even believe that this law could be used to steal children from their parents over Gun Ownership.

Senator Richard Pan, who is the author of SB-18 is on a roll after his forced vaccination bill passed last year. It is my belief that Richard Pan has gone insane and would make a great despot of a small Asian Country.

Pan is also a doctor and as such, believes that Doctors should have little or no oversight and unlimited power over our lives. Not only does SB-18 empower the state, but it also gives doctors even more power to intervene in parenting as well.

So Pan decided to go postal this session:

SB-426, which expands the government’s role in home visits. It has nebulous definitions of what “At-Risk Families” are. AS in, bibles and guns could be included. It also controls more of county budgets (that are already 90% controlled by the state). How does he intend for Government to exert the control? Either do what we say or lose the funding.

SB-487 which strips hospitals of oversight of doctors. It makes it much more difficult for bad doctors to get convicted of a crime related to their surgical practices.

SB-481 allows a doctor to make care decisions for senior patients when there is no health care directive in place or a responsible party available. So, if you have a loved one in a care facility, you had better have an estate plan, and a care directive in place or the doctor in the facility could euthanize them. The bill literally gives a doctor the unilateral ability to declare a patient unfit. This is amazing and is an extension of the Physician Assisted Suicide Bill.

I am wondering if calling Senator Richard Pan, Richard Mengele is more appropriate.

SB-808 gives School Districts complete veto power over Charter Schools. Senator Tony Mendoza is a whore of the Teacher’s Union, so it stands to reason that he’d pay off his master with this gem.

This bill would repeal those provisions authorizing a county board of education or the state board to approve a petition to establish a charter school and would specify that, on and after January 1, 2018, a petition to establish a charter school may not be approved by a county board of education or the state board and may be submitted only to the school district the boundaries within which the charter school would be located. The bill would provide that charter schools operating under a charter approved by a county board of education or the state board may continue to operate under those charters only until the date on which the charter is required to be renewed.

It is my understanding that the John Adams Academy and the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy were both chartered by the Placer County Office of Education. They can both kiss their charters good bye if this passes unless the underlying school boards have had a change of heart.

The bottom line with SB 808 is that it empowers the Teacher’s Unions to spend millions electing their lackeys in to school districts so they can choke off and kill competition.

Existing School Boards with Union Majorities will be able to eliminate Charter Schools wholesale WITH NO RECOURSE FOR THE CHARTER SCHOOL after 1/1/2018.

Gotta love these democrats. Authoritarian to their core.

The last bill I am highlighting is a garden variety Welfare State Bill. This is the latest in a 20 year string of democrat voter recruiting bills that have California harboring 38% of the Welfare Cases in the nation (and rising).

AB-992 Joaquin Arambula – you will now be able to get FREE DIAPERS to go along with your Obamaphone, free health insurance, welfare checks, food stamps, free car… you get my gist.

I remember Joaquin’s dad, Juan Arambula. Juan is part of a near dead breed, a true moderate / conservative democrat. Juan was so disgusted with how far left the dem party in CA had gone, he re-registered Independent and quit the legislature several years ago. Apparently, Joaquin is living off of his last name and little more. (Where have I seen a member of the Assembly with no qualifications other than a last name before?)

BONUS – Extreme Left Wing Militant Homosexual Activist Christian Hating Ricardo Lara has introduced Single Payer Health Insurance in California as a reaction to the deep deep fear the denizens of the welfare state have over repeal and replacement of Obamacare. The state is $100B or more in the hole, but who cares! Ricardo Lara and Richard Pan had they been alive 90 years ago would have been goose-stepping in Moscow or Berlin.

I am wondering why the hell I still live in California.
