Pelosi calls McCarthy ‘a moron’ over mandate criticism

By Daniella Diaz | CNN House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy a “moron” after being asked by a reporter about his criticism of the Capitol physician’s mask mandate in the House, another sign of the souring relationship between the two House party leaders. “He’s such a moron,” Pelosi said while getting into her SUV outside the Capitol, when asked about the House minority leader. Her insult came in response to McCarthy’s criticism in a tweet of new mask mandates in ...

FBI got inside a KKK group plotting a murder in 2015

By Jason Dearen | Associated Press PALATKA, Fla. — Joseph Moore breathed heavily, his face slick with nervous sweat. He held a cellphone with a photo of a man splayed on the floor; the man appeared dead, his shirt torn apart and his pants wet. Puffy dark clouds blocked the sun as Moore greeted another man, who’d pulled up in a metallic blue sedan. They met behind an old fried chicken shack in rural north Florida. “KIGY, my brother,” Moore said. It was shorthand for “Klansman, I greet you.” Birds...

‘This is how I’m going to die’: Officers tell Jan. 6 stories

By MARY CLARE JALONICK WASHINGTON (AP) — “This is how I’m going to die, defending this entrance.” Capitol Police Officer Aquilino Gonell told House investigators Tuesday he could feel himself losing oxygen as he was crushed by rioters – supporters of then-President Donald Trump – as he was defending the Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection. Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone, who rushed to the scene, told the new House committee investigating the attack that he was “grabbed, beaten, ta...

Deadline looms for $540 million in funding for light-rail to Montclair

Legislators and city council members from western San Bernardino County and the San Gabriel Valley who’ve been pushing to receive gap funding to complete extension of the LA Metro light-rail to Montclair are stuck in a waiting game. Leaders say the $540 million award from the state to fund the last leg of the project from Pomona to Claremont and Montclair is a perfect fit. First, because the project is “shovel ready” and second, it matches Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desire to spend part of a whopping $...

Infrastructure talks hit snags as Senate pressure rises

By Lisa Mascaro, Alexandra Jaffe and Kevin Freking | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senators ran into new problems Monday as they raced to seal a bipartisan infrastructure deal, with pressure mounting on all sides to show progress on President Joe Biden’s top priority. Heading into a make-or-break week, serious roadblocks remain. Disputes have surfaced over how much money should go to public transit and water projects. And other disagreements over spending and wage requirements for highways, bro...

Why are key California affordable housing bills bottled up?

Encouraging housing to be built in place of abandoned big box stores and strip malls. Making it easier to build student housing near community colleges. Establishing an authority in Los Angeles to finance affordable housing. These proposals all promise to ease California’s ever-worsening housing crisis by adding or preserving the already-scarce supply. But these bills also appear to be dead in the water. They missed a key July 14 deadline to be heard in a policy committee in the state Assembly b...

Bill aims to decertify police in CA for serious misconduct

By Robert Lewis | CalMatters On a Wednesday afternoon in April 2018, Gardena police officers got a “triple beeper” over their radios — three high-pitched squawks signaling an emergency. As many as 20 shots reportedly had been fired near a local park. “That kind of gets you a little adrenaline squirt going,” Gardena Police Officer Michael Robbins would later tell investigators. In minutes, a 25-year-old Black man, Kenneth Ross Jr., was dead — shot twice and killed by Officer Robbins as he ran pa...

U.S. Senate should strive for consensus, not partisanship

The U.S. Senate is on the verge of passing the largest budget in American history, $3.5 trillion dollars, with the votes of only Democratic senators. Among the provisions likely to be included are to: lower the eligibility age for Medicare while expanding its benefits, provide free community college tuition, extend higher Medicaid benefits in states that opted out of those higher levels under the Affordable Care Act (“ACA” or “Obamacare”) offer free pre-kindergarten and free school meals for al...

Kavon Ward started a movement to return Bruce’s Beach to its original owners. Ashanti Martin had been planning on a project to help Black families throughout the country get their land back.

The tax implications of SB 9 and 10

The Legislature has gone into summer recess leaving a lot of unfinished business. When they return, among the most controversial proposals left unresolved are bills addressing the state housing crisis. While no one disputes the need for more housing,,, the broader policy issue is whether state micromanaging of local land use decisions is in the public interest. There are several bills circulating in the capitol, but the two that have drawn the most public wrath are Senate Bills 9 and 10. Taxpaye...

Fixing California and federal marijuana laws

Despite adults being able to legally purchase and use marijuana, the legal market has struggled to compete with the black market in California, where the state and local tax burden on legal marijuana products approaches 40 percent.  As a result, over half of California’s cannabis market continues to be supplied by unlicensed dealers. As California seeks to improve its marijuana laws, it would also benefit if outdated and counterproductive federal laws prohibiting marijuana were finally eliminate...

Democrats renew questions about FBI probe of Kavanaugh

By Eric Tucker | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats are raising new concerns about the thoroughness of the FBI’s background investigation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after the FBI revealed that it had received thousands of tips and had provided “all relevant” ones to the White House counsel’s office. FBI Director Christopher Wray, responding to longstanding questions from Democrats, disclosed in a letter late last month that it had received more than 4,500 tips as it inv...

Terranea workers file complaints over resort’s failure to rehire them

Five hotel employees who were laid off last year from the Terranea Resort have filed complaints with the California Labor Commissioner, alleging the hotel has failed to recall them to their former positions in violation of a recently enacted state law. Senate Bill 93, signed into law in April, requires hotels, event centers and other hospitality businesses to offer employees who were laid off due to the COVID-19 downturn an opportunity to return to their jobs in order of seniority. The law provi...

Biden urges vaccination, calls it ‘gigantically important’

By Alexandra Jaffe and Aamer Madhani | Associated Press CINCINNATI, Ohio — President Joe Biden expressed pointed frustration Wednesday over the slowing COVID-19 vaccination rate in the U.S. and pleaded that it’s “gigantically important” for Americans to step up and get inoculated for the virus as it surges once again. Biden, speaking at a televised town hall in Cincinnati, said the public health crisis has turned largely into a plight of the unvaccinated as the spread of the delta variant has le...

California’s troubling shift to ‘basic income’

  When the economically struggling San Joaquin Valley city of Stockton in 2018 initiated a program to provide a monthly no-strings-attached stipend of $500 to a select group of residents, it was clear that the plan ‘s supporters hoped to prod other governments to adopt a similar program. Indeed, some Bay Area cities quickly followed suit. Now the California Legislature passed — and the governor supports — a $35-million statewide “universal basic income” program that likely will provide around $1...

As COVID cases spike, McConnell urges people to get vaccinated

By Lisa Mascaro | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell implored unvaccinated Americans Tuesday to take the COVID-19 shot, issuing a stark and grave warning of a repeat of last year’s rising caseloads and shutdowns if people refuse to protect themselves from the coronavirus. McConnell urged Americans to ignore the “demonstrably bad advice” coming from pundits and others against the vaccines. As cases skyrocket, he noted that nearly all the new virus hospitalizat...

Newsom gets his way on recall. Will it work?

In almost every aspect of the Sept. 14 recall election that is now mere weeks away, Gov. Gavin Newsom has had it his way. His most recent “victory” was in dissuading every other substantial (read: well financed) Democrat in California to stay off the list of candidates to replace him if the ‘yes’ side of the recall should win a majority vote. This was Newsom’s aim from the moment it became clear recall advocates would gather enough signatures to put the notion to a statewide vote. The tactic is ...

First Capitol rioter convicted of a felony gets 8 months

By Marshall Cohen | CNN A man who pleaded guilty to breaching the Senate chamber during the US Capitol insurrection was sentenced Monday to eight months in prison in a closely watched case that could influence how hundreds of other rioters charged with the same felony are punished. Paul Hodgkins, a 38-year-old Floridian, is now the first Capitol rioter charged with a felony to be sentenced. He pleaded guilty last month to obstructing congressional proceedings — specifically, the counting of the ...

Will California get tough on housing quotas?

Having more or less completed work on the state budget, legislators abandoned the Capitol last week for their annual summer vacation. They will return in mid-August, presumably, tanned, rested and ready to vigorously tackle other pending matters in the final month of the 2021 session. High on the agenda is the single most important issue facing California — an ever-growing housing shortage, particularly for low- and moderate-income families, that is the prime factor in our highest-in-the-nation ...
