Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

CA Tax Payer Revolt & the CA Rep. Party, and Water Wars: Show for Saturday, March 28, 2009

Join me on the air, Saturday at 11 AM PST

CRN Channel 5 (On the Internet)

Call in number for the program: 831-633-1460

This Saturday, on one fast hour in radio:
My guest this Saturday is Shawn Steel, board member and CA Republican Party National Committee Man, who wrote an email which was intercepted by and read on the John and Ken show on March 19th. It was addressed to the CA Republican Party’s Board of Directors, calling for immediate action, to oppose Prop 1A, and to campaign against it. I’ll share the email with you on the show. In it Steel argues that the “CA Republican Party (CRP )must join the Anti-tax fight, and defeat Prop 1A.” It’s about the CRP’s platform, and thus, its mandate, the reason why people become Republicans. So far, his cry in the email, has gone unheeded. But the grassroots activists in the party are in action! Time to shake it up and do some house cleaning! It’s High Noon time.

Piedad Ayala, director of the Latino Water Coalition, Central Valley farmer and business owner joins us for an update on the Water Wars. He shares an amazing little fact that blows the cover off of ‘environmentalists’ real intentions, which are hostile and harmful to the people of California.

California’s Upcoming Water Revolt: Left-wing enviros believe human beings are the problem

They may find, to their grief, that these troublesome people are about to launch

By Shawn Steel

Shawn Steel is California's National Committeeman to the Republican National Committee. This article originally appeared in California Political Review's Jan/Feb 2009 print edition. Posted: 3/5/2009

Californians now face an unprecedented, man-made threat to their stable way of life. Our state is slowly dying of thirst. This crisis, however, is one that could easily be avoided, if those in power in Sacramento wished to avoid it.

Don't break the backbone of California's economy

...agriculture is facing serious threats which could have dire consequences for those who grow the food to those who enjoy it at their dinner table each night. It's not to say that one industry sector is more important than another, but food is a daily necessity for everyone.

Taxpayers Gather To Protest Spending, Taxes, Growing Debt

The real grassroots Tea Party movement stands in marked contrast to Democrat attempts to manufacture a movement for Obama's $3.55 trillion budget.

Thanks to my buddy, Kenny, for passing this on to me.

Is Ayn Rand Relevant? Short and Succinct

Ayn Rand died more than a quarter of a century ago, yet her name appears regularly in discussions of our current economic turmoil. Pundits including Rush Limbaugh and Rick Santelli urge listeners to read her books, and her magnum opus, "Atlas Shrugged," is selling at a faster rate today than at any time during its 51-year history.
There's a reason. In "Atlas," Rand tells the story of the U.S. economy crumbling under the weight of crushing government interventions and regulations. Meanwhile, blaming greed and the free market, Washington responds with more controls that only deepen the crisis. Sound familiar?

This week, on the fastest hour in radio, we are very excited to welcome the passionate, brilliant and modest economist and writer, Steve Moore of the WSJ, and co-author of The End of Prosperity: How Higher Taxes Will Doom theEconomy--If We Let It Happen.

We’ll talk with Steve on the latest with Obama’s Stimulus bill, the budget, proposals, and the possibilities for altering the course we are on.
Also, the very hot, very sharp Latina Legal eagles, Francis Barraza and Kristen Lucero, are back. If you missed their debut, check it out in the archives.

They'll be with us the whole hour. The violence at the border is still escalating and continues to spill over into U.S. territory. The morgues are overflowing with bodies.

We'll discuss President Obama's statement in response to a call for troops- He obfuscates, but does reveal an intention to seize U.S. arms as a means of dealing with the problem.

Will that only worsen the danger? What can we do on our side of the border? Should we militarize the border? Should we change drug policy?

The August Review - Federal Bailout of States Violates U.S.

After the $700 billion bailout of the financial industry and the $17.4 billion bailout of domestic automakers, Americans are now being asked to pony up billions more to rescue states that have been fiscally irresponsible. A bailout, many argue, would not force states to re-examine their fiscal policies to prevent future deficits and instead would..

Kevin Korenthal, executive director of Associated Builders & Contractors, California Cooperation Committee, and conservative political activist, joins me to talk about two job killing and discriminatory policies looming large against our all ready beleaguered economy and job market.
Congresswoman Hilda Solis has been approved for her appointment as Labor Secretary. She, like Obama, and Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Clinton, is a proponent of labor policies that discriminate against minorities while claiming to promote diversity.
Obama’s policy underscores his intention to centralize labor in America in his quest to create a hardcore Socialist State.

If the “Employee Free Choice Act” EFCA becomes law, “workers would have to publicly sign cards, which, employers fear, could lead to intimidation by unions.” (The Denver Post, Feb 22, 2009)

Between 12:00 (noon) - 1:30 p.m. Monterey County will stage its first "tea party" in protest of the massive spending and bailout bills and the accompanying tax hikes. For further information check out the Monterey County “Tea Party” Blog.
We'll check in on the gathering before the show's out.

Teresa Hernandez, candidate for Hilda Solis’ 32nd Congressional District in a special election, the date yet to be set by Governor Schwarzenegger, drops in for a quick update.

It’s the Sun, stupid! Religious Enviros' beliefs aside, the world is not flat and changes in solar activity influence climate.

by Willie Soon
Between 1645 and 1715, sunspots were very rare and temperatures were low. Then sunspot frequency grew until, between 1930 and 2000, the Sun was more active than at almost any time in the last 10,000 years. The oceans can cause up to several decades of delay before air temperatures respond fully to this solar “Grand Maximum.” Now that the Sun is becoming less active again, global temperatures have fallen for seven years.

Obama tax hike meets Democratic resistance

If you haven't signed the petition already, to demand that any bills be posted on line, for public scrutiny for no less than 72 hours before they are signed into law, DO IT. It's the support Democrats and Republicans need. Voters will let them know how they feel before they vote blindly, and forsake us and our children and our children's children. Go to Read the Bill and sign it and spread the word.

Do as I say, not as I do: The Corrupt Mantra of our Fearless Elected Officials

Nearly 10 percent of Georgia state legislators are late filing or paying their state taxes... If they're late right now, they're REALLY LATE. We're not talking about last year's taxes. But they have no problem raising our taxes, to keep their friends happy.

Forbes.com Video Network | TalkBack: Speak Up, Silicon Valley

What happened in Silicon Valley? How did they come to vote for Obama when their tendency doesn't trend liberal by a huge margin? They're against a more controlling state. They're a land of immigrants. But they voted for the most statist inclined president since Franklin Roosevelt. Huh? Come on, speak up! Own up! Get off it! Give up having to be right! Choose integrity!

I talk with Francis Barraza and Kirsten Lucero,two gorgeous and dynamic legal eagles, currently at UC Hastings College of Law, Mex-American, Republicans, leaders in their field. We talk with Francis and Kristen about growing up first generation in the US, family, their principles and values and being Republican. We also touch on the question of changing our drug laws, with diverse opinions.

Piedad Ayala, Founder and chief organizer of the Latino Water Coalition. The current water crisis is a property and water rights issue. Republicans and Latinos need each other more than ever before. The fate of Farm workers, Ranchers, Farmers, Ag business owners and their workers, and CA Ag Industry's production of fresh food, are all in peril, together.

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database


Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
