Al Gore's Incoherent Sequel

Republicans’ health reform struggles stem from a solvable, but fundamental problem

Obama spied on Trump and his staff. He also likely spied on Romney and his staff.

The extent of this abuse is only now becoming known: - Flopping Aces

...The best reason to believe obama spied on everyone? This:
Records relating to former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s surveillance of Americans, including Trump campaign and transition officials, have been sealed at the Barack Obama Presidential Library.

That means they are off-limits from the public for the next five years under the Presidential Records Act.

In April, reports emerged that Rice had requested to “unmask” — or unveil the hidden names of — Trump transition officials who were caught up in surveillance of foreign targets.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton explained on “Fox & Friends” that they received a letter informing them that their request for materials related to Rice’s unmasking of U.S. citizens, the hacking of DNC computers and suspected Russian communications with the Trump team will not be fulfilled.
These are devious actions and gross violations of the law. The Russia collusion story is a smokescreen to obscure the real crimes.

The yellow light is on...

...“These numbers are problematic, I think this is a wakeup call for everybody,” said Chris Thornberg, co-founder of Los Angeles-based consulting firm Beacon Economics.

On the surface, California’s economy seems healthy enough; the jobless rate is rock bottom and wages are growing much faster here than in the rest of the country. But most sectors in the state have either lost jobs in the first half of the year or are growing more slowly than they had been.

Economists say that’s largely because businesses cannot find applicants to fill open jobs, because rank-and-file workers can’t afford to live in the Golden State....

California Supreme Court hands high speed rail officials a 6-1 defeat.

U.S. law does not allow state-owned rail projects to completely bypass California’s strict environmental regulations, the state Supreme Court said in a decision that ensures further legal complications for the planned $64-billion bullet train between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The high court overturned a lower court ruling and gave renewed hope to those who have used the California Environmental Quality Act to challenge the high-speed rail project championed by Gov. Jerry Brown.

“It basically says that California has a right to control its own railroads and decide whether they should be required to consider carefully the environmental impacts of their projects,” said Stuart Flashman, who represents several San Francisco Bay Area cities in a lawsuit that contends the bullet train project violates state environmental law....

McConnell Unveils Narrow Repeal Bill

REPEAL THE EMPLOYER MANDATE, which said that most large employers have to provide insurance for their workers.

Memos Detail Improper Obama-Era Spying on Americans

The National Security Agency and FBI improperly searched and disseminated raw intelligence on Americans, say newly declassified memos, which also fault the agencies for failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts. The NSA says the Obama-era missteps amount to less than 1 percent of the phone numbers and email addresses intercepted. But critics say the memos undercut the intelligence community's claim that it has robust privacy protections in place....

The list of respected organizations opposed to AB 1250 might consume an entire page of this newspaper. Thus we will highlight just a few in hope of illustrating the depth and breadth of people speaking truth to the Democrats’ almost unbridled power to ram through unholy special-interest legislation.

California is a place where Democratic Party lawmakers friendly to unions often turn into contortionists to ram through bills that hamstring local government and leave taxpayers footing higher bills or receiving reduced services.

Well, the contortionists are stretching their limbs even farther these days on behalf of the bucket of horse slop that is Assembly Bill 1250, which cleared the Assembly June 1 (with backing from Joaquin Arambula of Fresno) and on July 12 passed the Senate Governance and Finance Committee.
