Newsom does something right. Issues 138 offshore well permits.

Hits: 12

Like a clock even the governor of California sometimes gets it right. Newsom issued 138 offshore well permits. “Governor Newsom has issued 138 permits for wells located offshore,” according to Kyle Ferrar, Western program coordinator for the FracTracker Alliance. “This includes five new drilling permits and 133 permits to perform work on existing offshore wells.

Onshore Newsom has issued over 9,000 permits. Knowing California has enough oil on and off shore, the governor needs to double what he’s already issued.

But California has two loon groups trying to send California back to the stone age.

Consumer Watchdog and FracTracker Alliance are among a coalition of groups calling on Newsom to issue a mandatory 2,500-foot setback between oil drilling operations and communities. Up to one mile would be preferable based on the evidence, they argue.

Biden Pandemic COVID How funny is this?

But, but we got the vaccine, how could this be?  California hits 4 million COVID-19 cases amid delta variant spread.

But, but we got the vaccine, how could this be?  California hits 4 million COVID-19 cases amid delta variant spread. You were told that the vaccine was the miracle drug. Get the vaccine and you were the new superman, woman, child. So why have four million people got the virus? They locked up, social distanced, and even posted on social media that they were immune. Guess not.

But the coronavirus has since rebounded with ferocity, and California is seeing a level of daily infection higher than at any point during last summer’s surge. How can that be? More folks getting the vaccine and more folks getting the virus. Has the CDC let folks down? did the fauch lie? Again.

So what’s the answer? SMH. According to my link above. Getting more people to roll up their sleeves is especially vital now, officials say, because of the widespread circulation of the delta variant — believed to be the most contagious strain of the coronavirus yet. Double head shake.

Justice in California. U.S. judge overturns California’s ban on assault weapons

Justice in California. U.S. judge overturns California’s ban on assault weapons. Yes my friends the court has ruled in favor of the 2nd Amendment.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A federal judge Friday overturned California’s three-decade-old ban on assault weapons, ruling that it violates the constitutional right to bear arms.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego ruled that the state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding Californians of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and by the U.S. Supreme Court.

This from NBC News.

Judge Roger T. Benitez, who has favored pro-gun groups in past rulings, described the AR-15 rifle, used in many of the nation’s deadliest mass shootings, as an ideal weapon.

“Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment,” he wrote in Friday’s decision.

“Yet, the State of California makes it a crime to have an AR15 type rifle,” Benitez continued. “Therefore, this Court declares the California statutes to be unconstitutional.”

He praised the AR-15 as a rifle that should be formally protected by the law for its “militia readiness.”

Will this be the Savior of the Republican Party in California? Or the next Arnold?

Hits: 25


Will this be the Savior of the Republican Party in California? Or the next Arnold? Can the only Republican mayor of a major city save the California Republican party? And save the state from the economic and Covid mess Newsom created?

Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer on Monday established a political committee to begin raising money for a possible run for governor, kicking off what could be a tumultuous year in California politics as Gov. Gavin Newsom faces the threat of a recall election.

A Republican hasn’t won a statewide election in the heavily Democratic state since 2006, and registered Democrats outnumber Republicans in California by nearly 2-to-1. But a recall election could attract dozens of candidates who would cut up the vote and lower the percentage needed to win, a scenario that could provide an opening for a Republican candidate in the Democratic-dominated state.

How sick is this? Make America California Again? That’s Biden’s plan.

Hits: 9

How sick is this? Make America California Again? That’s Biden’s plan. I’ve taken the headlines from a story I read in the LA Times yesterday. According to a fellow writer there ( Evan Helper ), Joe wants to duplicate for the other 49 states what California has.

After four years of being relentlessly targeted by a Republican president who worked overtime to bait, punish and marginalize California and everything it represents, the state is suddenly center stage again in Washington’s policy arena.

California is emerging as the de facto policy think tank of the Biden-Harris administration and of a Congress soon to be under Democratic control. That’s rekindling past cliches about the state — incubator of innovation, premier laboratory of democracy, land of big ideas — even as it struggles with surging COVID-19 infections, a safety net frayed by the pandemic’s toll, crushing housing costs and wildfires, all fueling an exodus of residents.

If this was 10-20 years ago, most folks wouldn’t care. But California went so far left that folks like Pelosi, Sanders or Warren are looked at as Moderates.

California gave us Cash for Clunkers, Undocumented Migrants, Drugs, Open Borders, etc.

California theme parks push back on restrictions in state’s draft reopening plan.

Hits: 3

California theme parks push back on restrictions in state’s draft reopening plan. Will this governor never cease to amaze you? How can he in good conscience not allow theme parks to even open at a limited occupancy?

Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, SeaWorld San Diego, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Legoland California and other California theme parks closed in mid-March as the COVID-19 pandemic forced business across the U.S. to shutter their operations and society to adjust to the “new normal.”

Look at these crazy restrictions. The parks want them changed.

  • Individual theme parks can reopen only once their county reaches the least-restrictive “minimal” risk level

  • Operate at 25% of attendance capacity

  • Limit visitors to residents living within a 120-mile radius of each theme park

The state’s draft guidelines present two key problems for theme parks:

  • Placing theme parks in the final tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy means the severity of the guidelines never change until the pandemic ends
  • Reaching the least-restrictive “minimal” tier could be difficult to nearly impossible for California’s most-populous counties

The draft guidelines likely would prevent California theme parks from reopening for weeks or months.

California theme parks likely would not be able to set reopening dates until their respective counties entered the “minimal” tier — or not at all if their counties were stuck at a more-restrictive level.

 

So if there are minimal to no covid outbreaks at the parks, they must close if the county they’re in have outbreaks. What does the governor think is going to happen? People with the virus will flock to the parks?
