The President visited Yosemite this weekend, so the public’s attention is focused on parks. Naturally, the discussion includes liberal worries that the parks are not diverse enough, and that topic was a front-pager for the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday.
Liberal outdoorsy types, like Sierra Clubbers, worry that colorful people don’t care about wild places, and […]
The city’s Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday to sort out whether the current coddling of illegal aliens should be changed following the shocking death of Kate Steinle last July at the hands of a five-times-deported criminal. Unsurprisingly, the supes only clarified the enormous extent to which illegal aliens, including convicted criminals, are protected in […]
After years of complaints from taxpaying California parents that their qualified kids were not being admitted to state universities, a recent report found that numbers of foreign students has skyrocketed over the last decade. So much for government accountability in a one-party Democrat state.
At the prestigious UC Berkeley, shown below, 30 percent of the fall […]
The city by the bay never misses an opportunity to push the diversity meme, and the sinkhole holiday was utilized on Thursday to teach young children about Spain’s catholic influence on early California through founding missions. This occurred even though Cinco de Mayo is the anniversary of Mexicans defeating the French army in the 1862 […]
On Friday, President Obama remarked on his Facebook page that he would happily shred the Second Amendment by requiring all firearms have smart gun technology if it could save just one life:
OBAMA: Today, I want to update you on some important progress we’ve made to protect our communities from gun violence. As I said in […]
On Thursday, the feds arrested three family members of the San Bernardino jihadists (the Muslim couple who murdered 14 Americans for Allah last December).

We immigration restrictionists love upbeat stories of Mexicans who forsake their theft of American jobs and achieve prosperity upon return to the beloved homeland. Is it not racist to believe that brown people are inherently incapable of creating wealth and must instead be rescued by big white America?
In fact, Mexico is rich, ranking #15 among […]
Sunday’s New York Times had a cautionary tale, but perhaps not the one it intended. Silicon Valley executive Sal Shafi worried that his 22-year-old son Adam (pictured) had turned to jihad and contacted the FBI with his concerns. The young man was arrested and in December he was indicted by a federal grand jury, accused […]
On Monday, Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation to raise the state’s minimum wage gradually to $15 in 2022, even though he admitted, “Economically, minimum wages may not make sense.” Jerry isn’t stupid: he knows how California was among the hardest hit by the great recession in terms of employment returning.
Plus, the governor must be aware […]
In California, we have a spring ritual that has become increasingly important in recent years of worsening drought: the state’s top water watcher heads to a specified spot in the mountains where he sticks his long pole into the snow to estimate the amount of future runoff into streams and rivers.
