“A people that wants to remain ignorant and free … wants what never has been and never will be” ~ Thomas Jefferson.”


The California Democratic Party had net cash on hand of $13,124,864 and raised $448,250 between January 1 and January 18. The California Republican Party had a net cash on hand of $2,268,728 and raised $157,000 during the period.

From The Nooner: “SD25 (Santa Clarita-Palmdale): The California Republican Party, working paycheck to paycheck sent $28,500 to Scott Wilk for re-election to SD25.


  1.  Even Left understands Democrats have caused poverty, bigotry in California
  2. Newsom/Democrat energy policy sends $35 MILLION a day to terrorists in Middle East
  3. Big bucks against Meaghan Dahle—Dems to really contest
  4. Vote by mail—easy way to corrupt voting process
  5. Former GOP consultant and Josh Newman donate to Chad Mayes
  6. Pres. Trump State of the Union Watch Parties
  1. From Politico—apparently the Left understands that California, run by Democrats is a State of bigotry, economic disaster for the people, and poverty DUE TO DEMOCRATS    “TWEET OF THE DAY: The Intercept reporter Lee Fang @LHFang: “How do the pundits who claim all of America’s ills are from Trump or racism or Fox News contend with California? Diverse Democrats control everything, cultural liberalism is ascendant yet feudal levels of poverty & inequality, massive homeless encampments across the entire state.”
  2. Also from Politico:  NEWSOM/DEMOCRATS energy/environmental policies’ help FINANCE Terrorists, “California sends $35 million a day to the Middle East to import energy. If passed, AB345 — with its $3 BILLION price tag — will require even more, making every working Californians ability to commute to work dependent on the whims of foreign regimes. California can do better. NO on AB345. Learn More
  3. Is any GOP’er safe in California?  Or is this just an effort to soften up an incumbent in preparation for the 2021 redistricting, which could soften this GOP district.  Another Politico  analysis, “SELF FUNDER: Assemblywoman Megan Dahle would seem to be in a good position to retain her staunchly conservative AD-1 seat, but she’s facing a well-funded challenge: no-party-preference challenger PK Paul Dhanuka on Thursday dropped another $150,000 into his campaign, bringing his self-supplied total to $350,000 so far.
  4. How easy is corrupt voting in California?  You can register to vote online, then vote by mail.  San Mateo County is just one of many without a polling place on election day.

This is an All-Mailed Ballot/Vote Center Election.

There are no polling places for this election. You can go to any Vote Center in San Mateo County to vote. Vote Centers will be open starting 29 days before the election. To find a Vote Center near you and a list of all Vote Centers and their hours, click here.

  • From Scott Lays The Nooner, “AD42 (Yucaipa): There are a couple of interesting contributions on Chad Mayes‘s year-end report that came in after he announced he re-registered from the Republican Party to No Party Preference. GOP political consultant and “never Trumper” Mike Madrid chipped in $100 and recalled State Senator Josh Newman (D) sent in $250. Newman will face Senator Ling Ling Chang (R), who won the office after Newman was recalled, in November.
  • On February 4, at 6:00pm, President Trump is to present the State of the Union speech to Congress. This is a great opportunity to bring together Trump supporters, people new to politics and to expand our base of supporters.  The California Political News and View is promoting WATCH PARTIES.  If you want to know how to do it or need other help, please call me at 805-795-1271.
  •  The South Bay Republican Assembly: We are having a watching party at 5:30PM at the N.Y. Deli here on Sepulveda in Torrance. We are joint hosting with Beach Cities Republicans and Jo Reitkopp with Women for Trump.

 (Periodically the California Political News and Views will publish tidbits of political news, to keep you in the loop of what the pooh bahs know.  The phrase “tom/tom’s” comes from my mentor, Lorelei Kinder who never passed a rumor, just called to tell me what she heard on the “Tom/Tom’s”.  This column is named in her honor.)
