GRINDALL61 SLAMS SCAG AND THEIR HALF TRILLION DOLLAR PLAN TO TRANSFORM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
 
08:26
First and foremost SCAG is a corporation, and because SCAG is a corporation I do not consent to any of your mandates, edicts, or demands. You need to show me the contract I signed as a willing consenting adult before we can even have a conversation. Secondly, SCAG is not constitutional. Nowhere in the constitution does it talk about JPA's. It's a made up term to steal government away from people at the local level. There is nothing good about regional government. When you take 191 cities and put them altogether into 1 body which is what SCAG is, you have created a massive government. There is not one big government in history that has ended well for the people. This whole SCAG regional transportation process proves why regionalism is terrible for this country. An associate of mine and I discussed sitting down and reading the thousands of pages that are in the Scag Regional Transportation Plan and the EIR document. Making notes and eventually publishing a report refuting the plan. The whole idea of reading the documents and publishing the report are not even possible given the time constraints. Secondly, even if we were able to get the report complete we would then have to go to 191 elected representatives in 191 different cities and try to convince them to side with us on the vote. 191 people. And we only have a couple months to do all of this. We advocate for localism and local government. If the same thing were happening in a local city we would only have to convince 3 people to agree with us on the plan. That's 3 vs. 191. That example that I just read is the very reason why this regionalism has to stop. It completely shuts we the people out of the process. Now lets get into what this plan is based on. This entire plan is based on sustainability. Now when you ask one of these planners what sustainability is they are likely to say something along the lines of making development that fits the current need while preserving the ability for future generations to meet their own needs... What the hell that does even mean? Seriously half the time you ask a planner what sustainability is they usually use the word sustainability in their answer which tells me they don't even know what it means. I have spent 4 years trying to figure out what sustainability actually is and I have the answer. Sustainability is rationing. It's being forced to use less of everything. Less water, they go that covered. Less energy, they are attempting that with renewables. Renewable energy is a giant crony capitalist scam where the government picks winners and losers and props up failed industry via cap and trade. Less food, that's being worked on by the United Nations Less mobility, I can't believe you guys think we are so stupid that people are actually going to believe that going from a car to a bus or a bike is somehow getting around quicker. Seriously you people are insane. Less freedom. Freedom is choice and you are destroying our choices with this plan. Let's talk about those choices You are acting like you are doing us a favor by providing us with bike lanes, buses and trains that most people want nothing to do with. However this is a all huge scam. Last year the state attempted to cut our gasoline in half by 50% The bill was called SB350. The bill passed but the gasoline language was taken out of the bill. We have confirmation that the state will be trying to pass that again this year in 2016. So yes the state of California is trying to get us out of our cars. We are seeing all this planing right now because you know that the main option that everyone wants to use is going to be eliminated. So stop with this garbage that you are doing us a favor. This is a tyrannical big government that is waging war against us. You're not doing anybody any favors! Lastly, I want to address this lie about the millennials, how my generation wants to walk and bike everywhere and live in little shoebox apartments. First off, my generation is glued to their phones so they are completely disengaged. As a result they aren't coming to these meetings and demanding this. I have yet to see it in my time doing this. Secondly, we are told that the millennials want to spend lots of money to live in small apartments. How is that going to happen? We were screwed by the older generations when they told us that we must go to college. Not only is a college degree worthless now but it has put all the young people in debt so there isn't going to be spending $400,000 on a so called luxury apartment. The truth is every single city is increasing the number of housing units and we have a president that has opened up the borders and is bringing in illegal aliens and refugees from the different wars that are going on. Those people need a place to live if they are going to be here.

Possible Voter Fraud in California?
 
02:17
POSSIBLE VOTER FRAUD? This is an unmanipulated video of the Oprah Winfrey show broadcast on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 over KCRA television, Sacramento, CA. Our TV signal is received via Dish TV and the original recording is on our DVR. I don't know how to transfer the DVR recording to my computer, so I shot this video of the Oprah show segment from our DVR recording with my Sony Cybershot camera. On Wednesday, Oprah was interviewing Jane Fonda and after returning from a commercial break, the interview continues. 1:33 back into the interview (which is old film of a Jane Fonda interview many years ago), With no announcement or any other stated reason, the screen switches to a graphic of KCRA's Election results for California Insurance Commissioner. It should be noted that the graphic which was displayed for 15 seconds (at 1:08 of my video) says " Statewide Results Reporting: 100%". The graphic shows Dave Jones winning with 5,327,591 votes; a 59% share: Mike Villines with 1,892,128, 20% of the vote; Clay Pedersen, 951,500 for 10% and William Balderston, 465,456, 5% or the vote. The screen then goes black for 14 seconds and then returns to the Oprah show without any comment. We find this extremely curious, as the election will not be held for six days on Tuesday, November 6, 2010. Is the election for California Insurance Commissioner already decided? What other election results have already been decided?

Gas Prices in California 2017 - Why So High? - Los Angeles Gas Prices - Bundys Garage
 
01:31
Gas Prices in California near Los Angeles LA For nearly three years, California drivers have been shelling out an estimated $3 billion more annually for gasoline than researchers think they should be spending. The problem is, no one knows exactly why. The Golden State regularly ranks in the top three for retail gasoline prices in the nation, typically falling just below Hawaii and tying with Alaska, where prices are, on average, 60 cents higher than the rest of the nation, according to AAA. And, on Wednesday, California drivers will start paying even more at the pump with the gas tax rising an extra 12 cents, an increase that pushes total federal, state and local taxes to approximately $0.72 per gallon. But, taxes alone cannot account for California’s high gas prices. In fact, even with the tax increase, Californians will still not be the highest-taxed when it comes to refined oil. That honor goes to Pennsylvania, where residents pay $0.78 in taxes despite the fact that drivers there are paying about 30 cents less at the pump. Instead, said UC Berkeley economist Severin Borenstein, other factors contribute to higher-than-average prices in California: cleaner-burning fuel requirements that drive up the price by approximately 10 cents, low carbon fuel source requirements that add about 4 cents, the state’s cap-and-trade program that contributes another roughly 12 cents, and one other factor — a “mystery surcharge” — that researchers have yet to explain, though they think it adds another approximately 20 cents per gallon. “Some of it is probably profiteering by the refineries, but I don’t know how much,” Borenstein said. “Some of it is probably logistical constraints (in the supply chain).” In late 2014, the California Energy Commission tasked Borenstein and four other experts to form the Petroleum Market Advisory Committee and determine why gas prices were so high in California. But, not too long after the five members started meeting, an explosion in February 2015 at Exxon Mobile’s refinery in Torrance cause a major disruption to the oil market in California, causing gas prices to spike while the refinery was shut down. The committee anticipated the price spike, which often occurs when there is a sudden disruption in supply. But, they didn’t expect prices to remain high, even months afterwards when production levels at the refinery returned to normal. Since that time, Borenstein said prices have remained higher than they would have been before the explosion. “The question is what changed?” he said. The committee released a report on their findings last month. The big conclusion? More research is needed to determine if fingers can be pointed at big oil companies possibly colluding to limit supply, and thus, raise prices, or if other factors, such as the cost of transporting or refining the oil, are to blame.

Protests Erupt After House Republicans Pass Healthcare Bill That Could Hike Premiums for Millions
 
15:48
http://democracynow.org - Republicans have moved one step closer to repealing Obamacare after the House narrowly approved legislation Thursday that would result in tens of millions of people losing health insurance while providing a massive tax break to the rich. The future of the bill remains in doubt as Republican senators have vowed to write their own healthcare bill. Most major medical organizations and the AARP warned the bill will cause serious harm to patients and drive up the cost of healthcare. The Congressional Budget Office was not given enough time to "score" the legislation—meaning the House voted on the bill without knowing its projected impact. The bill was also opposed by almost every sector in the healthcare industry, including hospitals, doctors, health insurers and consumer groups. It puts a cap on federal spending per person—including seniors and children—under Medicaid and blocks Medicaid funds going to reimburse Planned Parenthood for providing preventive care to women. We speak with Margarida Jorge, co-executive director of Health Care for America Now and Health Care for America Now Education Fund, and Monica Simpson, executive director of SisterSong, a women of color reproductive health collective.

Why Teachers Unions Don't Want School Choice
 
05:06
Take the pledge for school choice! http://www.schoolchoicenow.com Can every child receive a good education? With school choice and competition, yes. The problem? Powerful teachers unions oppose school choice. But when teachers and parents understand why school choice works, they support it. Rebecca Friedrichs, a public school teacher who took her case against the teachers union all the way to the Supreme Court, explains why school choice is the right choice.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: What if schools had to compete for students in the same way that businesses have to compete for customers? Would schools get better or worse? There’s no need to guess. In almost every state and city where there is competition today, educational outcomes improve – often dramatically. This competition is called school choice, and many states and cities now embrace it. With the old model, under which most American children still live, the government – not the parent – decides which school children will attend. Now, here’s how school choice works: The money follows the student. Every child receives funding that their parents can direct to the school of their choice – public, private, charter or even homeschool. According to researchers at the University of Arkansas – in the most comprehensive study done to date -- students in school choice programs saw their reading and math scores improve by 27 percent and 15 percent, respectively. Sounds like something we should get behind, doesn’t it? But for millions of families in my home state of California and in many others, school choice is not a choice. And there’s one reason why: teachers’ unions. I’ve been a teacher for 28 years, and served as a leader in a local affiliate of the California Teachers Association -- so I’ve seen this problem from the inside. Teachers in California public schools are coerced to pay dues to the teachers’ unions. True, we cannot be forced to join, but we are forced to pay the union. Their fees are mandatory - and expensive. In California alone, the unions raise over 300 million dollars every year. What do the unions do with all that money? They lobby the government for more money - more money for public education. That might sound good, but it’s really just a smoke screen. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that since 1970, public school attendance in the U.S. has gone up by just five percent, while public school employment has gone up 95 percent! More public school employment means more dues for the unions. But does it mean better schools? Certainly not in California, which ranks 45th in the nation in reading and math despite spending over 55 billion dollars a year on education. That’s over 52% of the state’s total budget. Yet rarely is anyone held accountable for these dismal results. I’ve personally seen excellent, new teachers lose their jobs while incompetent, and even abusive, veteran teachers keep theirs because of the unions’ infamous “last in, first out” layoff and tenure rules. For these reasons and more, parents almost always prefer school choice when allowed to choose. This is obviously true for wealthy parents who can afford to send their children to any school they want, but it’s equally true for middle class and poor parents when they have a choice. And here’s the real giveaway: public school teachers are less likely to send their children to public schools when given the choice.

Why Rent Control Hurts Renters
 
05:13
Nicole Gelinas of the Manhattan Institute shows why price ceilings on apartments hurt those it intends to help -- but also why rent control is here to stay. She explains the background of rent control in America (focusing on New York in particular) and the negative effect it has on prospective renters and on the quality of rent-controlled apartments. Did you know that landlords of rent controlled apartments in New York City rarely improve their properties? Watch this video and learn why. Hint: They know that there's a long line of people ready to move in if their current tenants get fed up. And even though evidence suggests (and economists on the Left and Right agree) that rent control is self-destructive, the voters love it!

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: There’s no hot button issue hotter than rent control. Even the most courageous politican quakes at the idea of opposing it. For starters, no one likes landlords. Second, those who benefit from rent control -- and there are a lot of them -- vote. And it has huge emotional appeal. Imagine this six o’clock news story: a reporter interviews a senior citizen describing how she’ll have to vacate her small apartment, her home for twenty five years, if her rent control isn’t maintained. What politician wants to go up against that? These are just a few of the reasons why, once a city adopts rent control, it’s almost impossible to dislodge it. But does rent control work? Does it lower or raise housing costs? And does it increase the building of more affordable housing? It might surprise you to know that nearly all economists -- on the right and the left -- from the late Milton Friedman to Paul Krugman agree that the answer is no. In a survey of 464 economists in the May 1992 issue of American Economic Review, 93% said that “a ceiling on rents reduces the quantity and quality of housing available.” Why the unanimity? Because it’s an accepted economic principle that government imposed price controls -- and that’s what rent control is -- always leads to price distortions --- in this case rents.This applies everywhere, but let’s focus on New York City, the place where I have concentrated my research. New York has the biggest rental market in the country. Of the city’s 8.2 million residents, 5 and a half million rent. And these five and a half million renters live in about 2.2 million apartments or rented houses. Every year, a city board votes on how much owners of rent-regulated apartments will be able to charge their tenants for the following year’s one-year or two-year leases. The board members base their decisions not on supply and demand but on an estimate of how much costs such as fuel and insurance have risen. And, of course, how much of an increase voters will tolerate. Think about what this means: the longer you stay in your apartment the more you benefit from below-market rents. Or to put it another way, why would you ever leave your rent controlled apartment? For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-rent-control-hurts-renters

The Trump Effect! President Is Forcing Blue States to Cut Taxes !
 
03:01
The Trump Effect! President Is Forcing Blue States to Cut Taxes ! President Donald Trump’s tax reform package (the “American Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”) put Democrats on our nation’s coasts in an awkward position. Those who have been calling for the rich to pay their “fair share” suddenly discovered that they might have to pony up in the end. And all of a sudden high taxes don’t sound as great as they once did. This is armchair psychology, but I have a hunch that nearly all those calling for higher taxes on “the rich” really mean “I want people who earn more than me to pay more.” Among the ways that the Trump tax plan is bad for the wealthy in blue states is that it caps deductions on state and local taxes, or SALT for short. California’s State Senate President complained that the “Republican tax increase bill disproportionately hurts California taxpayers by capping SALT deductions. Today, the average California taxpayer takes a $22,000 deduction.” Because the GOP measure caps that at $10,000, “Californians will be double-taxed.” Funny, isn’t it? It’s apparently the federal government’s job to subsidize high-tax-and-spend states by giving their citizens federal write-offs so that their state tax burden is less painful. Every dollar someone in one of those states gets to write-off against their income comes at the expense of the taxpayers in fiscally responsible low-tax states. And that change in the tax code is forcing some leaders in blue states to consider lowering their taxes in turn to ease the burden on their residents. As Will Ricciardella reports, Leaders of liberal states that have enacted high taxes of their own are so enraged that their constituents now have to pay them without shifting any of the burden to the feds, they are actually considering suing the federal government. Their claims are ironic considering the Democrats’ main contention with the federal tax overhaul is that it will only benefit the rich. “The state and local tax deduction disproportionately benefits high-income taxpayers, with more than 88 percent of the benefit flowing to those with incomes in excess of $100,000,” Jared Walczak of the Tax Foundation wrote. Oddly enough, the SALT deductions have escaped the stigma of being a tax cut for the rich. The result of the tax is that middle- and low-income taxpayers subsidize more generous spending in wealthier blue states because they benefit far less from SALT deductions, according to the Tax Foundation. The states’ ability to transfer the burden of high taxes to the federal government has only encouraged them to raise taxes higher than they normally would. These high-tax blue states truly have no one to blame but themselves. No one forced them to tax their citizens at the highest rates in the nation.

CALIFORNIA Imposes HUGE "Climate Change" GAS Tax On RESIDENTS
 
02:11
THAT's Right...EVERYBODY WILL PAY...This Gasoline AND Diesel TAX will increase EVERYTHING relating to transportation, including YOUR Skyrocketing FOOD Prices and all consumer products...In many places, we’ve already reached or surpassed $4 per gallon. But starting Jan. 1st, $4 won’t be the exception; it will be the norm. In fact, we might be pining for the days when gas was just $4 a gallon. That’s because we are all going to be paying a new “hidden” double-digit tax at the pump. That’s right, starting next year, a law will go into effect that will increase the cost of gasoline by at least 12 cents. And as if that’s not bad enough, the cost will continue to increase!!! This is the next step of a California Air Resource Board program related to climate change that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by capping emissions produced during many industrial processes. While most of these costs are borne by industry, some will probably result in higher consumer costs. This latest regulation, however, will apply directly to transportation fuels, gasoline and diesel, and will likely result in a direct price increase of 12 cents per gallon of gas. But because the fuel trade market is so volatile, it could increase gas prices as much as $1.00 per gallon. This new “hidden tax” is in addition to the more than 70 cents we already pay in state and federal gas taxes. Which means, next year, we could be paying over a dollar a gallon in taxes alone. But here’s the worst part: Your money won’t even be going to improve our streets, roads and freeways. That’s right, not a penny will go to constructing new freeways or filling potholes or any of the infrastructure improvements we are desperate for. Even though California’s economy is dependent on a strong transportation system, especially good freeways and local streets, this new “hidden tax” won’t improve our ability to move goods and services. But it will cost more to do so. California already pays the highest gas taxes in the nation, on the highest gas prices anywhere in the country. And with some of the longest commuting routes around, imposing a new double-digit “hidden tax” on gasoline will prevent many people from getting to and from work. Our state, which already has a reputation for being bad for business, will force many companies to leave, pushing unemployment even higher. And what’s the Legislature’s solution? Ignoring it or even worse, coming with new ways to spend more of our money. While this new cost is so hidden that most in the Legislature either don’t know about it or are choosing to ignore it, leadership is eager to spend this new tax revenue. It’s time we make sure they know we oppose paying more when we fill up at the pump. Californians will soon pay OVER $1.00 in taxes per gallon..!!!

Californians are considering five statewide ballot propositions

Californians are considering five statewide ballot propositions election, California, 2018 primary, politics, propositions https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd4_4MPV20qVj80Rm_cQHOw?sub_confirmation=1 On Tuesday, Californians are tasked with considering five propositions that vary from wildlife protections to modifying the state Constitution. Here is a rundown of what’s on the ballot. Proposition 68 Advertisement Formally known as the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection and Outdoor Access For All Act, this proposition would allow the state to borrow $4 billion in bonds for state and local parks and other environmental protection and restoration projects. The money would be used to restore parks in lower-income communities, protecting wildlife habitats and rivers or coastal areas, and improving flood protection and groundwater systems. A legislative analysis suggests once the bonds are paid off, the total cost would be more than $6 billion. State Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) wrote the initiative. Seven different groups contributed a total of $6 million to support the proposition, according to campaign finance tracking website Cal-Access. Proposition 69 The state Senate approved a measure in April that would prohibit lawmakers from borrowing transportation-related revenue for unrelated programs. This proposition would ban the use of any of the new vehicle fees and diesel taxes, totaling around $2 billion a year, for nontransportation purposes. Supporters of the measure include the California Alliance for Jobs - Rebuild California Committee, Members' Voice of the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California, and United Contractors. Even if the proposition is approved, its impact remains unclear. There is an effort underway to repeal the gas tax increases on the November ballot. Proposition 70 This proposition would require a two-thirds vote from both houses of the Legislature to approve future spending of cap-and-trade revenue. The amendment came after lengthy 2017 negotiations between Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and lawmakers who agreed to extend the state’s signature climate change program and add new air pollution regulations. Advertisement State Assemblyman Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) led Assembly Republicans in the push for this proposition. "California Republicans are different than national Republicans," Mayes said last July. "Many of us believe that climate change is real, and that it's a responsibility we have to work to address it.” Your guide to the 5 propositions on California’s primary ballot » Proposition 71 According to the California Constitution, statewide ballot measures that are winning by the end of election day immediately become law — even if all votes haven’t been counted. This proposition would mandate that all ballots be counted before a measure becomes law. “Allowing initiatives and referenda to go into effect immediately after an election may lead to some confusion,” Assemblyman Kevin Mullin (D-South San Francisco) said during a legislative hearing. “In some instances, elections are too close to call for some time after the polls clos

Raising the Debt Ceiling: It Just Makes Sense. Not.
 
00:45
[Editor's Note: Go to http://reason.com/blog/2011/03/01/raising-the-debt-limit-it-just for details, charts, and links] Some say the world will end in fire and some say in ice. But in Washington, a lot of people say it will end if we don't continually raise the debt ceiling. The statutory debt limit, or debt ceiling, represents the maximum amount of debt the federal government can carry at any given time. The limit was created in 1917 so that Congress wouldn't have to vote every time the government wanted to increase the amount of debt (which was becoming a more and more frequent occasion). Since then, the Treasury Department has had the authority to issue new debt up to whatever the limit is to fund government needs. Last year, the limit was raised to $14.3 trillion, an amount that is about to reached. As it approaches, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has said failing to raise the limit would likely mean the U.S. would default on its debt, creating "real chaos" in place of the fake chaos that's out there now. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has said that failing to raise the limit would be "deeply irresponsible" and and Austan Goolsbee, President Obama's chief economic adviser, has said that not raising the limit would create "the first default in history caused purely by insanity." Eh, maybe. As Reason columnist and Mercatus Center economist Veronique de Rugy, has pointed out, we've maxed out the nation's credit card in the past without such dire results. In the mid-1980s, the mid-1990s, and in 2002, for instance, the debt limit wasn't raised for months at a time and the government got along just swell. The government has a big bag of tools it can use, ranging from playing around with the amount of spending that is liable to the limit to prioritizing interest and debt payments over other outlays. Interest on the debt for this year is projected to be about $225 billion and government revenue is expected to be around $2.2 trillion, so the government can easily pay the vig and avoid defaulting. What it shouldn't do is simply keep piling on the debt. The limit has been raised no fewer than 10 times in the past decade. When Republicans ran the White House and the Congress, they voted overwhelmingly to charge it and Democrats, including Sen. Obama, hollered bloody murder. In 2006, he called the need to yet again increase the debt limit "a sign of leadership failure." Now that Dems run the show, the GOP has suddenly rediscovered its inner cheapskate. So it goes. The boldest plan to rein in spending and debt comes from newcomer Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), a Tea Party favorite who dispatched Republican incumbent Bob Bennett in the primaries before coasting to victory in the general election last fall. Lee has vowed to block passage of a debt-limit increase unless Congress signs on to his balanced-budget amendment which would cap annual federal spending at 18 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The amendment would require a super-majority of two-thirds in the Senate and House of Representatives. Lee's bill is competing with another Republican proposal from Sens. Hatch (Utah) and Cornyn (Texas) to cap spending at 20 percent of GDP. The Hatch-Cornyn bill has weaker rules on its higher cap as well. In 2010, spending came to about 24 percent of GDP and it's expected to come in around 25 percent of GDP in 2011. Since 1950, total federal revenues have averaged 17.8 percent and have reached higher than 20 percent exactly once. Spending over the same time has averaged just under 20 percent. Whether Lee's proposal carries the day -- and there's a strong case that its passage would do more to calm financial markets than simply bumping up the federal credit line -- neither the Democratic nor the Republican leadership has yet to advance a serious proposal to cut spending and reduce outstanding debt. Indeed, both the president's budget proposal for 2012 and the generally non-existent Republican response are not only deeply irresponsible but clear signs of insanity. That ain't right. But it does help explain why a government that has increased spending over 62 percent in real dollars can no longer get by on a $14 trillion debt ceiling.

What: CCD General Meeting at California Democratic Party Convention 2013 When: Saturday, April 13, 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM Where: Convention Center Room 314/315 TRANSCRIPT: Hello California College Democrats, To your president Paul Murre, to vice presidents Bryce Farrington and Zeeve Rose, to the executive and leaders at more than 30 campuses across our state - to all of you - it is an honor to join to today at the California Democratic Convention. With your voices and votes, with your leadership and support, California led the way to victory in 2012. On campuses you registered new voters, on the ground - you ran the largest field program in your history and on Election Day - the results were clear. Proposition 30 passed and our state can keep its commitment to students. Proposition 32 failed and our workers' rights are protected. Eleven new California Democrats now serve in the most diverse caucus in the history of the House of Representatives. Senator Feinstein secured the most popular votes in any Senate election in history. And President Obama and Vice President Biden secured four more years in the White House. That's what we've already achieved, but as the theme of this year's convention declares - we're just getting started. There's more to do to move our country forward. There's more to do to restore confidence in our economy by creating jobs, to restore confidence in our politics by passing campaign finance reform, to restore confidence in the safety of our communities by passing gun violence prevention legislation and to restore confidence in the character of our country with comprehensive immigration reform. There's more to do to reignite the American Dream. California College Democrats, we're just getting started. Now we will take back the House for the American people. We will always strengthen our democracy and our middle class. We will advance a vision of progress, fairness, equality and opportunity for our state and our country. Thank you for your leadership. ###

House easily approves defense bill with new nukes, cuts to Pentagon bureaucracy
 
05:56
The House overwhelmingly passed a $717 billion defense policy bill on Thursday, despite concerns from some lawmakers over provisions that would endorse a new class of tactical nuclear weapons and seek cuts to a slew of Pentagon support agencies. The vote was 351 to 66. Advocates of the National Defense Authorization Act said the legislation would build on promises by President Donald Trump and defense hawks on Capitol Hill to build up U.S. military might. "The best way to summarize this bill is that it takes the next steps," Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) said on the House floor. "The next steps to rebuilding our military and reforming the Pentagon, the next steps towards strengthening our country's national security." The Senate Armed Services Committee, meanwhile, approved it version of the annual policy bill in closed session Wednesday. But Senate leaders have not yet said when they plan to consider the legislation. A whopping 131 Democrats joined 220 Republicans to support the measure. Only seven Republicans broke with their party to oppose the bill. The bill’s wide passage Thursday also stands in stark contrast to the disastrous failure last week of the House farm bill another must-pass policy measure. The defense legislation garnered broad support from House Democrats despite a provision that would authorize new low-yield submarine-launched nuclear warheads called for by the Trump administration’s recent Nuclear Posture Review. Democrats were largely united in opposition to the new tactical nuclear weapons, warning they could be destabilizing and normalize nuclear exchanges. “This bill … pushes us even further and faster down the path to war, toward a new nuclear arms race,” warned Rep. John Garamendi (D-Calif).. “Does it make us safer to have a low-yield nuclear weapon on one of our submarines? Probably not.” Democrats offered amendments to limit funding for the warheads and place other restrictions on nuclear spending. But those proposals were defeated amid Republican criticism that Democrats were trying to slow nuclear modernization efforts and that the weapons are needed to meet a growing nuclear threat from Russia, which has such low-yield nuclear weapons. The bill also includes a series of overhauls to the Pentagon’s administrative and support agencies, one of Thornberry’s signature efforts this year. The bill would eliminate the much-maligned Washington Headquarters Service and seek a 25 percent cut in certain “back office” functions of those non-military agencies. Thornberry’s aim is to free up more money for front-line troops, but the reform package has some lawmakers, defense industry groups and federal employee unions dyspeptic over the loss of critical defense functions and civilian jobs. The Trump administration also objected to the proposal. And, along the way, Thornberry scaled it back. In all, the bill would authorize $717 billion in national defense spending. Within that, $617 billion is dedicated to the base Pentagon budget and $22 billion would be authorized for nuclear weapons programs overseen by the Energy Department. Another $69 billion would be for U.S. war efforts abroad. The bill could very well mark the peak for defense budget in the near term. The sky-high defense spending levels may not be sustainable for long, as the federal budget deficit will soon exceed $1 trillion annually, thanks in part to a massive tax cut passed by Republicans late last year. “The Department of Defense is one of the biggest,” said Rep. Adam Smith of Washington state, the top House Armed Services Democrat. “As the largest portion of the discretionary budget they pay the highest price when we don’t get ourselves on a fiscally responsible path." The bill would continue a military buildup, led by Republican defense hawks, launched by a two-year budget deal that boosted caps on defense spending by $165 billion over two years. And it would make fewer changes to the administration’s budget request than previous years as a result. The bill would green-light a 2.6 percent military pay raise, equal to the administration’s request and the largest increase in troop pay in nearly a decade. The legislation would continue to grow the size of the military services, adding more than 16,000 active-duty and Reserve troops. But unlike recent years, the bill would not add any personnel beyond the Pentagon’s budget request. It also calls for a boost in Navy shipbuilding. The bill would procure 13 ships — three more than the Navy requested in its annual shipbuilding budget. It would boost shipbuilding accounts by $1.9 billion above the request and fund three extra ships — a new aircraft carrier and two more Littoral Combat Ships. The legislation also would purchase 77 next-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighters — even with the administration’s budget request — but it would allow the Pentagon to buy more F-35s through cost cutting and production efficiencies.
California Spending on Prisons and Higher Education | Los Angeles Live 10-4-17
 
01:13:38
LIVE from the Los Angeles Music Center: California’s public universities and colleges got a bump in funding this year, but so did the state’s prisons. In fact, the percentage of the state budget dedicated to higher education has declined over the past four decades, while the share going toward incarceration has reached an all-time high. Simultaneously, demand for post-secondary education has skyrocketed, and the prison population, at least in the last few years, has plummeted. Why has California invested so heavily in incarceration while divesting from higher education? To answer this question, veteran reporter Kim Baldonado ’87 moderates the discussion with expert panelists Robert Birgeneau, Chancellor Emeritus, UC Berkeley; Carol Liu ’63, C.EAS ’82, former California state senator; and Steven Raphael Ph.D. ’96, professor of public policy at UC Berkeley. Our panel will spend 60 minutes in discussion, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A. --- This CALIFORNIA Live! discussion is presented by the Cal Alumni Association and the Goldman School of Public Policy.

California Healthy Pets Act AB1634  YES!
 
04:01
With over 840,000 pets abandoned each year in California (this is conservative, since many of the private organizations fail to report), our city and county shelters (which does not include spcas, humane societies, etc.) fill up with many more dogs and cats than there are homes. The result is overcrowded shelters and the worst kinds of animal suffering—including the deaths of over 450,000 animals each year, many of them healthy and adoptable. Aggressive stray dogs roam through many neighborhoods, increasing the danger of dog bites and the transmission of rabies. And taxpayers spend $250 - $300 million to house abandoned cats and dogs in shelters and then sadly, euthanize (kill) the majority of these pets. It's the third highest reimbursable mandate in the state This problem has a common sense solution... Please vote for AB 1634, the California Healthy Pets Act.

CBS-8: Carl DeMaio for Congress
 
02:06
Carl DeMaio launched his campaign for US Congress with a simple pledge: Let's Fix Congress First. DeMaio, who has produced an exceptional record of helping balance San Diego's budget and author of the San Diego Pension Reform Initiative, says he will bring the same level of reform to Washington. Carl DeMaio is known for working across party lines to get reform done. More at www.CarlDeMaio.com Carl DeMaio knows how to reform government - and he has built an entire business and a political career on making broken government programs work again for the people. At the age of 23, Carl DeMaio started his first company -- the Performance Institute -- to provide training and consulting solutions to help financially-troubled government entities cut costs while improving performance. Carl DeMaio turned his business success into a life-long crusade to improve the performance, transparency, efficiency and accountability of government at all levels. Not content to wait for city leaders to implement reforms, Carl DeMaio has repeatedly taken his case to the voters -- sponsoring city-wide voter education drives during each election, helping defeat tax and fee increases, and sponsoring a number of reform ballot measures. In 2012, Carl DeMaio authored and led the coalition to pass the landmark "Pension Reform Initiative" that ends pension spiking abuses, caps pensionable payouts, and closes the city's troubled pension system and gives new hires 401(k) style retirement accounts instead. Carl DeMaio has fought wasteful spending by using his Council position to direct performance audits of city departments and thoroughly reviewing department budget requests. Carl DeMaio has offered a laundry list of cost-saving proposals to the Mayor and City Council. By educating and engaging the public on these common sense proposals, Carl was successful in getting a significant number of reforms enacted on bipartisan votes of the City Council -- saving over $150 million dollars during his term in office. Carl DeMaio also won bipartisan votes on his other important reform proposals - ranging from a measure to cut red tape on small business districts to his "Sunshine Law" to expand public access to a wide range of city government documents making San Diego one of the more transparent local governments in the nation. In May 2012, the UT San Diego noted "Carl DeMaio has a record of getting things done -- the right things." At a time when the public is frustrated with the lack of results by elected officials at all levels, Carl DeMaio stands out as a unique leader. Carl DeMaio leads by example -- slashing his own compensation by 22% on day one of his city council term and rejecting enrollment in overly-generous the elected officials' pension program. Carl DeMaio cut his own city council budget by 15% on day one -- and returned over $600,000 to the city treasury during his term. Carl DeMaio believes that elected officials should be judged based on their results, not rhetoric. To help change the culture of government, elected officials must demonstrate reform by applying it to themselves first. "If we want to change government, we have to change the kind of people we are electing to office. I want to be part of that change, and so far, our approach seems to be working to get the kind of results citizens deserve," concludes DeMaio.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Biography - The Real Muscle is His Brain
 
19:04
He created a body that was to become the gold standard for muscular development. He would use it achieve one goal after another, rising to the very pinnacle of, not one, but three careers. Yet, from the very start Arnold Schwarzenegger had the odds stacked against him... He was dismissed, ridiculed and parodied mercilessly. What people failed to realize was that Arnold’s strongest muscle was, not his bicep, but his brain. With it he orchestrated career moves that took him to the very top. →Subscribe for new videos every Monday and Thursday! https://www.youtube.com/c/biographics?sub_confirmation=1 Vote for the Biography you want us to next.

Carl DeMaio: Standing Up for All Communities
 
00:16
Carl DeMaio is supported by a broad coalition! Help him advance reform to hold government accountable to the citizens. Carl DeMaio knows how to reform government - and he has built an entire business and a political career on making broken government programs work again for the people. At the age of 23, Carl DeMaio started his first company -- the Performance Institute -- to provide training and consulting solutions to help financially-troubled government entities cut costs while improving performance. Carl DeMaio turned his business success into a life-long crusade to improve the performance, transparency, efficiency and accountability of government at all levels. Not content to wait for city leaders to implement reforms, Carl DeMaio has repeatedly taken his case to the voters -- sponsoring city-wide voter education drives during each election, helping defeat tax and fee increases, and sponsoring a number of reform ballot measures. In 2012, Carl DeMaio authored and led the coalition to pass the landmark "Pension Reform Initiative" that ends pension spiking abuses, caps pensionable payouts, and closes the city's troubled pension system and gives new hires 401(k) style retirement accounts instead. Carl DeMaio has fought wasteful spending by using his Council position to direct performance audits of city departments and thoroughly reviewing department budget requests. Carl DeMaio has offered a laundry list of cost-saving proposals to the Mayor and City Council. By educating and engaging the public on these common sense proposals, Carl was successful in getting a significant number of reforms enacted on bipartisan votes of the City Council -- saving over $150 million dollars during his term in office. Carl DeMaio also won bipartisan votes on his other important reform proposals - ranging from a measure to cut red tape on small business districts to his "Sunshine Law" to expand public access to a wide range of city government documents making San Diego one of the more transparent local governments in the nation. In May 2012, the UT San Diego noted "Carl DeMaio has a record of getting things done -- the right things." At a time when the public is frustrated with the lack of results by elected officials at all levels, Carl DeMaio stands out as a unique leader. Carl DeMaio leads by example -- slashing his own compensation by 22% on day one of his city council term and rejecting enrollment in overly-generous the elected officials' pension program. Carl DeMaio cut his own city council budget by 15% on day one -- and returned over $600,000 to the city treasury during his term. Carl DeMaio believes that elected officials should be judged based on their results, not rhetoric. To help change the culture of government, elected officials must demonstrate reform by applying it to themselves first. "If we want to change government, we have to change the kind of people we are electing to office. I want to be part of that change, and so far, our approach seems to be working to get the kind of results citizens deserve," concludes DeMaio.

Socialist California, Not Mississippi, Now Poverty Capital of America
 
05:32
Socialist California, Not Mississippi, Now Poverty Capital of America If you’ve spent any time on your liberal relatives’ news feeds, you’ve probably seen a meme or five noting how Mississippi — a state where residents overwhelmingly vote Republican — is the most poverty-stricken state in America. Of course, this meme ignores historical factors as well as the very salient fact that the Democrats, until relatively recently, treated Dixie as their own private fiefdom. However, all of those memes can now go away, because there’s a new poverty capital of these United States. This time, America’s poverty capital is a state that’s had a history of wealth, both in terms of human capital and natural resources. It’s where several of our biggest industries — including defense and tech — have been based. It was a place where many people went in the 20th century to seek their fortunes. And yet, after the state turned into the most liberal — dare we say socialist? — place in America, it also became our country’s epicenter of economic misery.Ladies and gentlemen, I present your new poverty capital: California. “California — not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia — has the highest poverty rate in the United States,” the Los Angeles Times notes in a Jan. 14 piece by Kerry Jackson. “According to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure –which accounts for the cost of housing, food, utilities, and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income — nearly one out of four Californians is poor.” So, why are Californians so poor? After all, job and GDP growth is good, although most of that is based around the tech sector. Part of it, Jackson argues, is that “state and local bureaucracies that implement California’s antipoverty programs … resisted pro-work reforms” that began in the 1990s to get people off of welfare. “It’s not as if California policymakers have neglected to wage war on poverty, Sacramento and local governments have spent massive amounts in the cause, for decades now. Myriad state and municipal benefit programs overlap with one another; in some cases, individuals with incomes 200 percent above the poverty line receive benefits, according to the California Policy Center,” Jackson writes. “Unfortunately, California, with 12 percent of the American population, is home today to roughly one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse,” Jackson continued.“It’s as though welfare reform passed California by, leaving a dependency trap in place. Immigrants are falling into it: 55% of immigrant families in the state get some kind of means-tested benefits, compared with just 30% of natives.” Other reasons for California being the new capital of poverty? Californians spent 30 percent of their income on housing in 2015, in part because of government regulations around land use and the environment.“Counties and local governments have imposed restrictive land-use regulations that drove up the price of land and dwellings,” analyst Wendell Cox said. “Middle-income households have been forced to accept lower standards of living while the less fortunate have been driven into poverty by the high cost of housing.” That’s not the only place where the state’s exigent environmental regulations have hurt the middle class and poor. Some estimates have energy prices at 50 percent more than the national average due mostly to regulations. “In 2012, nearly 1 million California households faced ‘energy poverty’ — defined as energy expenditures exceeding 10 percent of household income. In certain California counties, the rate of energy poverty was as high as 15 percent of all households,” read a 2015 Manhattan Institute study titled “Less Carbon, Higher Prices” authored by Jonathan A. Lesser. And things are only poised to get worse: “By 2020, California will require that one-third of electricity consumed in the state be generated from renewable sources,” the study read. “California households’ electricity prices have risen as a result of the state’s renewable-energy mandates and carbon cap-and-trade program — and will likely continue to rise at an even faster rate in coming years.” The great irony at work here is that this has been the Democrat playbook for decades now. We’re told that if we give the poorest among us welfare, it will spark the economy more than tax cuts because the impoverished will put that money back into the economy. Green energy — adopted in expedited fashion due to environmental regulations — was supposed to create new industries and economic growth as far as the windmill-trained eye could see.

Credit Card Reform and Debt Explained: President Obama's Council of Economic Advisers
 
27:17
Austan Dean Goolsbee (born August 18, 1969) is an American economist and the Robert P. Gwinn Professor of Economics at The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business. Goolsbee formerly served as the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and was the youngest member of the cabinet of President Barack Obama. Goolsbee served on the three-member Council from the start of the Obama Administration. He advised President Obama during his 2004 U.S. Senate race and was senior economic policy adviser during the 2008 Obama Presidential Campaign. He took over in September 2010 as the Council's Chairman, replacing Christina Romer, who had left to return to a teaching position at the University of California at Berkeley. On June 6, 2011, he announced that he was departing the administration and returning to the University of Chicago. Goolsbee was nominated by Obama to serve on the Council of Economic Advisers on his first day in office. Goolsbee was confirmed by the Senate on March 10, 2009. He concurrently served as chief economist at the Economic Recovery Advisory Board. He was designated chair of the Council on September 10, 2010 succeeding Christina Romer. In these capacities, Goolsbee has served as a media surrogate for the Obama Administration and his skill on television has been noted in the media. Goolsbee was interviewed by Jon Stewart on August 11, 2009; February 1, 2010; October 25, 2010; February 24, 2011; August 3, 2011; and September 6, 2012. He also appeared in Daily Show segments on November 11, 2009, where he was interviewed by Josh Gad about whether the Cash for Clunkers program had ruined demolition derby and on March 17, 2009 where he said that executives at AIG deserved the "Nobel prize for evil". Jon Stewart described him as "Eliot Ness meets Milton Friedman". In 2009, he was voted the Funniest Celebrity in Washington. One practical joke was giving a dead fish to the departing White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who has been known to give dead fish to political opponents. On June 15, 2009, he appeared as a guest on The Colbert Report. He made a second appearance on the Colbert Report on October 13, 2010, where he defended Obama's tax cut policies which would allow tax breaks to expire for Americans earning more than $250,000 per year. Goolsbee's main arguments were that 98% of Americans would still receive a tax break under the Obama proposal and that the country would have to borrow money to fund tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans if all tax breaks were extended. In November 2010, however, the House of Representatives swung to a Republican majority who threatened that they would not extend the expiring tax cuts on that 98% without extending the cuts for the wealthiest 2% as well, and in December Obama signed a compromise deal to extend the cuts for all. In January 2011, Goolsbee expressed the administration's confidence that the U.S. debt limit would be raised, noting that rhetoric from some members of Congress, who suggested the routine increase should be opposed, "(appear) to reflect a deep misunderstanding of the consequences of default". Goolsbee agreed with Tim Geithner and numerous conservative commentators "that the debt ceiling must be allowed to rise", commenting that "playing chicken" with a default of government liabilities could have a catastrophic impact on the U.S. economy. He noted that the Obama administration sought to fuel economic growth during the continuing gradual recovery by "focusing on spurring investment and improving U.S. exports and innovation" but noted that "in the medium run, a series of tough choices" would need to be made and that the president's budget would indicate his willingness to make budget cuts a part of the long-term plan. On June 6, 2011, Goolsbee announced that he would return to the University of Chicago, claiming that the economy was "a million miles from where it started". He is expected to play an informal role from Chicago in Obama's 2012 campaign. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austan_Goolsbee

Yanis Varoufakis: "And the Weak Suffer What They Must?" | Talks at Google
 
01:08:34
A titanic battle is being waged for Europe’s integrity and soul, with the forces of reason and humanism losing out to growing irrationality, authoritarianism, and malice, promoting inequality and austerity. The whole world has a stake in a victory for rationality, liberty, democracy, and humanism. In January 2015, Yanis Varoufakis, an economics professor teaching in Austin, Texas, was elected to the Greek parliament with more votes than any other member of parliament. He was appointed finance minister and, in the whirlwind five months that followed, everything he had warned about—the perils of the euro’s faulty design, the European Union’s shortsighted austerity policies, financialized crony capitalism, American complicity and rising authoritarianism—was confirmed as the “troika” (the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund, and European Commission) stonewalled his efforts to resolve Greece’s economic crisis. Here, Varoufakis delivers a fresh look at the history of Europe’s crisis and America’s central role in it. He presents the ultimate case against austerity, proposing concrete policies for Europe that are necessary to address its crisis and avert contagion to America, China, and the rest of the world. With passionate, informative, and at times humorous prose, he warns that the implosion of an admittedly crisis–ridden and deeply irrational European monetary union should, and can, be avoided at all cost. Varoufakis is the Finance Minister of Greece. A Professor of Economic Theory at the University of Athens and a visiting professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin, he is the author of The Global Minotaur: America, the True Causes of the Financial Crisis and the Future of the World, among others.
