‘Camp Epic’: Gay California Teacher Molested Boys as Young as 11

“Allegedly” — it’s important always to add “allegedly”: Even as he allegedly abused the middle-school age children left in his care, even as he purportedly lied to parents about field trips throughout the Bay Area, court documents show that Ronald Guinto articulated a strict code to his campers: “What happens at Camp Epic stays at […]

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Lots, I’m afraid: Since Gov. Jerry Brown assumed office in January 2011, a record number of inmates with life sentences are winning parole. Brown has allowed the release of nearly 1,400 lifers, while going along with the parole board about 82 percent of the time. . . . More than 80 percent of lifers are […]

Even in Deep-Blue California, ObamaCare Still Inspires Deep Doubts, Poll Finds

Donald Douglas points out that President Obama got nearly 60 percent of the vote in California last year, but the president’s signature health-care program is still widely unpopular there: Sixty-five percent of respondents said people wouldn’t be able to afford the health insurance they’ll be required to have under the law’s individual mandate.

California: The Amnesty State

Democrat-run California has passed a law that effectively prohibits cops from turning over illegal aliens to federal immigration officials, Michelle Malkin reports. Gov. Jerry Brown: “While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead. I’m not waiting.”

The Little Girl Was Kidnapped and Raped — Thank You, Governor Jerry Brown!

Chandler’s Ghost reminds me of a story I’d really rather forget: The kidnapping and sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl in Northridge, California, by two career criminals who never should have been out on the street.

Unenforced Laws, Preventable Crimes: California Still Circling the Drain

Law-abiding taxpaying citizens are fleeing California, an increasingly ungovernable bankrupt disaster, but hey, they’ve got a good-looking attorney general and Paul Krugman thinks the state is making a “comeback,” so why worry? Well, among other things, they can’t afford to keep criminals in prison: He was released from custody in July 2012 because of a new law that […]

‘Evolution,’ Complete

You knew this was coming, right? Completing what President Obama called his “evolution” on the question of gay marriage, the administration late Thursday called on the Supreme Court to strike down California’s voter-passed initiative invalidating same-sex marriages. In the new brief, the Justice Department argues that the ban on gay marriage violated same-sex couples’ constitutional […]

It’s Time to Play ‘Name That Party!’

San Diego’s former mayor, Maureen O’Connor, is a liberal Democrat. But now that she’s been charged in a massive scandal — she stole more than $2 million from a charity established by her late husband, in order to fund a decade-long gambling binge – the New York Times somehow can’t bring itself to mention her partisan affiliation.
