  Who hates cops? Criminals hate cops: A man has been charged in connection with the ambush shooting of two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies earlier this month in Compton.

Good-Bye, Zimbabwe, U.S.A.: Ben Shapiro Explains Why He’s Leaving California

More than a decade ago, I began comparing California to the kleptocratic regime of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe: The thievish, parasitical mentality of liberals, who view taxpayers only a source of plunder, eventually runs head-on into economic reality. Capital is portable, and predatory governments will eventually cause disinvestment, as investors seek opportunities elsewhere. As investment […]

Democrat Concedes in CA-25 Special Election: Not Close Enough to Steal
