The following are my recommendations for voting on the propositions on the November 3rd ballot:
Funding for Stem Cell Research
Raise taxes on non-residential real estate
Allow affirmative action again
Allow Parolees the right to vote
Allow some 17 year olds to vote
Allow Seniors, disabled and disaster victims to take their tax basis with them when they sell their home and buy a new one.
Restores previous penalties for certain crimes (roll-back of Brown leniency).
Rent control (again)
Allows ride-share drivers to be deemed to be independent contractors.
Regulating dialysis clinics (back again)
Create new state agency and staff to enforce consumer privacy laws.
Requires approval of 2018 law that banished cash bail for criminals.
I have read in detail the complete language of each of the propositions. These are the recommendations I have come up with based on my research and analysis. My recommendations also happen to coincide with the recommendations of other conservatives who have also researched the ballot measures, including Steve Frank and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. If you would like a detailed explanation for the recommended vote on any of the propositions feel free to contact me.
The Declaration of Independence was about creating something – a new nation.
The organized Marxist destroyers, rioters and looters of today, that go by the name Black Lives Matter, Antifa, or whatever name, are not about creating…they are about destroying, erasing, canceling – an exercise in elimination. Their purpose and intent is to destroy America and assert a Marxist-type of government. An important part of their success is attributable to the consent of the elites of America. The people who run the country’s major institutions – in business, academia, bureaucracies, media, politics, book publishing, social media, museums, and philanthropies. The assent, if not outright support, by the elites provides legitimacy to this destructive movement. The Marxists would not succeed if they didn’t have the support of the press, the Democrat Party, and the elites, and the enormous financial funding from major corporate America.
America needs its modern-day patriots, like the signers of the Declaration of Independence, to step up and assert their leadership. We need people today who will pledge their lives, fortune and sacred honor for the protection and preservation of America the Good.
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
In Congress, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
The Proposition 13 on the March 3rd primary ballot is bad for taxpayers.
It will directly result in significant increases in property taxes and in additional assessments on properties to pay off the $27 Billion in bond payments that will be payable by taxpayers over the next 30 years. This will cause a reduction in real estate values and an increase in annual property tax assessments.
As is customary in each election in Los Angeles County, I make recommendations to my fellow conservatives as to how to vote on ballot measures and judicial candidates. I have also included a link to candidates endorsed by the Republican Party of Los Angeles County.
The shocking wave of anti-Semitic attacks in recent weeks in Democrat-run cities and leftist college campuses across the United States have hardly scandalized the think tank progressives who are taking this opportunity to lecture the Jewish-Americans under assault about why it’s in their interest to remain unarmed. These are the same voices of the same political party, however, who promulgated the very failed policies that have engendered homeless encampments, moratoriums on arresting street criminals, public defecation in the street, and flagrant and open illegal drug use which have turned many US cities into the dangerous, lawless, filthy locales where it’s not surprising that the latest trend among the drug-addled and mentally disturbed should become Jew-hunting.
We have traveled a long way together on this journey.
I tried to think when it was that I first became involved with SCRW&M. It has to be at least about 20 years. I think we were meeting at the Tam O’Shanter in Glendale at that time, or was that later? That was before moving to the Smoke House in Burbank.
I have always felt that SCRW&M was a special organization, different from other clubs, even though I was the President of another Republican Club. The “Forum” where members get to participate and express their opinions is a very compelling part of the attraction of SCRW&M, and something that other clubs should consider.
We hope 2020 will be better than the last, which was a tough political year in California for the freedom-minded. But there’s little reason to believe it will be. The political history in this state has been repeating itself for some time.
Did President Trump say there were “very fine people” on both sides?
Did President Trump call neo-Nazis “very fine people” during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots of August 2017? The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong? Worse, what if their reporting is wrong and they know it’s wrong? A straight exploration of the facts should reveal the truth. That’s what CNN political analyst Steve Cortes does in this critically important video.
The following is adapted from a speech delivered on April 30, 2019, at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C.
Once upon a time, the Electoral College was not controversial. During the debates over ratifying the Constitution, Anti-Federalist opponents of ratification barely mentioned it. But by the mid-twentieth century, opponents of the Electoral College nearly convinced Congress to propose an amendment to scrap it. And today, more than a dozen states have joined in an attempt to hijack the Electoral College as a way to force a national popular vote for president.
