Feinstein calls for hold on Kavanaugh consideration – TheHill

I keep hearing that the nomination and Confirmation process for Supreme Court nominees has become very polarizing. What I don’t hear is the fact that the Republican Party put oil on that partisan Fire by not even allowing a member of the Republican Senate to visit with Merrick Garland who was rightly nominated by President Obama. So calls for a Slowdown in this process and a rush to judgment to get this unfit nominee into a lifetime appointment is a travesty. The Senate used to be a place of allegiant consideration and now it is a thunder dome.

let’s take things slowly, it is a lifetime appointment and he is only 53 I don’t think waiting a few weeks for him to get on the Supreme Court is going to matter that much. First let’s start with an FBI investigation. Lying to the FBI is a crime. Ask that was already going to jail for lying to the FBI in the special council’s investigation of Russian collusion by the Trump for president campaign. Once we have a report by the FBI which to take no longer than a week or 10 days then we should have ordered and thoughtful hearings as to whether or not these allegations hold enough Merit to keep this man out of the Supreme Court. This is not a court of law. This does not have to be by no Reasonable Doubt. Ask Senator Al Franken about Reasonable Doubt.

California Governor Jerry Brown Says State Will Launch Its Own Pollution Monitoring Satellite – Gizmodo

I’ve been watching the show on Netflix from the BBC Called Death in Paradise, one I highly recommend, and it said something very wise and that is that paradise is where you find it. I was lucky enough to find Paradise in Los Angeles almost 18 years ago. and living in California is a very special experience. Sure we have great weather, and movie stars and all of that but it’s the people and it’s government that they choose that makes it Paradise for me.

While the Tangerine nightmare in the White House systematically tries to dismantle everything good that President Obama did there is one Bastion in the United States that is stepping up to the plate and making sure that the environment, at least in our part of the world is not destroyed by him. You can tell by the people he chooses to run the EPA that the Tangerine nightmare on how he believes that he is not the steward of our children’s future. By the way not the name I made up, Bill Maher did that, and I won’t be using his name very often on my blog anymore, so the current occupant of the White House is the Tangerine Nightmare on this blog. The first and very corrupt Scott Pruitt sued the EPA as the Attorney General of Oklahoma and had vowed to destroy it. Well while we all cheered at his demise from the administration quietly the Tangerine nightmare put in an oil and coal company lobbyist in his place. Sure he is being more respectful of the people’s money but not of our future. So I am so proud that the state of California is currently being run by Jerry Brown. And Jerry Brown our governor has decided that we are going to move on with climate change study and not let the federal government hold us back. At almost 65 years old I never thought I would be saying that the federal government would be holding back on Environmental Protections and here we are. It’s why I support and holy believe that Gavin Newsom will be our next governor so that he can carry on Governor Jerry Brown’s Legacy.

Gov. Jerry Brown signs his final state budget, California’s largest yet, with giant budget surplus – LA Times

The republicans, the GOP, or just the party of trump claimed that they are better at fiscal responsibility than the democrats.

Photo credit Los Angeles Times

When governor Jerry Brown took over from Arnold Schwarzenegger there was a 27.1 billion dollar deficit but now we have a rainy day fund that exceeds that amount. People think that California is one giant democratic state. They could not be more wrong. Especially In the state legislature there are giant swats of California that are held by republicans and yet the governor was able to sign this bill will thought a single line item veto. That’s because governor Brown works across the aisle unlike the republicans. When president Clinton left office we had a budget surplus. That took a lot of work but he did it in conjunction with a Republican Congress. Now due to tax cuts for mainly rich people and their heirs we are watching the clock in New York race through our money because of the fiscal irresponsibility of the Republican party or the party of trump.

When former San Francisco bear and now lieutenant governor Gavin newsome took over as you tenant governor he did a couple of interesting things. He moved out of the lieutenant governor said mansion and it is now least as a means of revenue for the state. He moved out of the lieutenant governor offices in the state house and took a cubicle outside of governor Brown’s office. Hopefully, in November we will vote Gavin newsome in for governor and he will continue governor Brown’s fiscal responsibility. I’m like the party of trump or the party of fiscal irresponsibility.

ICE spokesman resigns, citing fabrications by agency chief, Sessions about Calif. immigrant arrests – The Washington Post

I have been on this planet almost 64 years. I have seen lots and lots of administrations come and go. But I’ve never seen one that lies to the American people this way. It’s continuous it’s never-ending and it comes from every branch of the administration. I am so tired of hearing about the lies that this White House puts out every day through its so-called press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And now has a resident of California I am absolutely Furious about the fact that they’ve been lying about undocumented criminals in our state. This has prompted the resignation of their spokesperson at ICE because he could not keep putting out these lies. Enough is enough this is a treasonous Administration that counts house to Russia and now we need to get rid of them. I have not said the impeachment word in my blog yet but I’m ready to say that now.

Why (the hell) is offshore drilling again banned in Florida? {Well, it’s a red state} – washingtonpost.com

Destroying the planet seems to be on his agenda. He’s trying to destroy our government and its system. He’s trying to destroy our values. And foremost he seems hell-bent on destroying the

I live in California, I also lived most of my life in Florida. Honestly, California has much more touristic value Onnit Shoreline than Florida does. And yet California drilling has been opened but Florida seems to be special to this hypocritical president.

One by one Republicans like Daryl I said today have said they’re not running for reelection. There are not running for reelection because they won’t win. This President is digging himself into a hole that’s going to be incredibly difficult to get out of.

Trump: I will solve California drought – CNN Video

The only time that Donald Trump has spoken up regarding climate change was when it was in his best interest. In a filing with the Scottish government asking for permission to build a higher sea wall to protect his golf course his attorneys mentioned the fact that climate change was raising the levels of the Seas. Now he thinks that he can solve California’s drought. The only way to solve California’s drought is for the world to understand that we are at a precipice and are about to collectively fall into it if we don’t dramatically change the way we do business. 2016 has had 8, yes 8, 500 year floods in the United States alone. Donald Trump in his only interview on climate change looked like a kid who had not prepared for his science project. He said that climate went up and down up and down and there was nothing we could do about it. He was more upset about the fact that he could no longer use a hairspray that was more effective. He actually said he could not understand how when he sprayed hairspray in his “sealed” apartment it would affect the ozone layer. I guess Donald Trump doesn’t breathe the same air that we all do. His lack of knowledge and his unwillingness to listen to scientists as opposed to his handlers frightens me. I am 62 years old and I know I will see changes in the climate but I feel so so sorry for those young people who are going to have to pay for the mistakes being made right now by politicians.

With popular politicians like Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom behind this initiative I am sure that it will pass and the voted in by California voters in November.

Sanders supporters drop effort to change state voting plans 3 days before election in California

It seems that this system is only ring when it’s rigged against Senator Sanders in the view of his supporters. They want to change the rules in the middle of the race. Children will be children, but Bernie Sanders is No Child. But he’s really acts like one.
