California’s next presidential primary — in 2020 — will be earlier

CA & OR, Elections


Capital Alert

September 27, 2017 2:01 PM

California will hold its 2020 presidential primary in March rather than late in the process in June, under state legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday.

Brown did not issue remarks with his signature, but proponents said their chief motivation was to make California – long a source of campaign donations – more relevant in the nominating process.

“Candidates will not be able to ignore the largest, most diverse state in the nation as they seek our country’s highest office,” Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Democrat, said Wednesday. Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens and the author of Senate Bill 568, predicted the so-called “prime time primary” would change elections here for the better.“We have a responsibility to drive a different agenda at the national level and promote inclusion and consensus, not the politics of division,” he added in a swipe at President Donald Trump.

Among the potential beneficiaries of the earlier primary are U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, rising Democratic stars who are often discussed as possible presidential candidates. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders has been active in the state early.

An analysis by Paul Mitchell, a consultant and elections expert with Political Data Inc., found that under the current delegate count and schedule, California would account for 37 percent of the elected delegates on Super Tuesday, and 33 percent of all delegates elected to that point.

Even if the national party penalizes California for going early by stripping 70 delegates, the state would still have 32 percent of the delegates awarded on Super Tuesday, and 28 percent of all the delegates awarded by that point in the process.

California last sought to correct its lack of impact in the primaries by shifting its vote to February in 2008.

Hillary Clinton beat Barack Obama in California, but he outlasted Clinton by peeling off a string of states. Still, it helped boost turnout among registered voters here to nearly 58 percent.

Presidential primaries were in March in 2000 (54 percent turnout) and 1996 (42 percent). California shared its March 2004 primary with nine states (44 percent), but lawmakers complained about the protracted election season and pushed it back to June.

Critics of the process point to a handful of factors that could lessen the state’s 2020 impact: Delegates are awarded proportionally based on a candidate’s performance.

Also, other states could move up their primaries. More than 20 states ultimately shared their primary day with California in 2008, the earliest date allowed by the Democratic Party without special exception.

Alert! SOS Modifications to New Motor Voter Law Destroys Transparency



The passage of the New Motor Voter Program was a travesty and an assault on fair and honest elections by making it possible for people not eligible to vote to register to vote, and vote, without fear of prosecution!

Like most laws, the details of implementation were not included in the language of the bill. Now the Secretary of State is filling in the details with no guidance from the people, or their elected representatives.

At each step of the plan creation, vigilant citizens have an opportunity to react to the direction being taken, and perhaps influence the ultimate results. EIP finds several concerns with the recently announced regulations, and we need your help.

CA Secretary of State is  only accepting comments until May 1st!!

Fax or mail your letter by Monday, May 1st

Secretary of State, Alex Padilla, must RECEIVE A DELUGE OF LETTERS and FAXES from concerned citizens by this coming Monday, May 1st.

Problems with modifications of the New Motor Voter law:

  • The proposed regulations will reduce transparency because no information with respect to voters who become “inadvertently registered” to vote will be hidden and unavailable.

  • The proposed changes removal the normal requirement to retain records of inadvertent registrations that get cancelled, so we can never request the records through the Open Records Act (CA version of FOIA).

No one, not even the SOS, will be able to analyze the impact of the law on the electoral process.

California continues to handle the integrity of California elections on the ‘honor system’!!

  • The automatic voter registration relies only on the person attesting as to whether he is eligible.

  • The new law relies only on “self-cancellation” if someone is honest enough to say that they were accidentally registered.

The DMV is the only reliable database indicating who is a citizen and who is not and YET the law does not allow the SOS to access the DMV database, and does not require the DMV to verify voter eligibility.

Read the proposed regulations at:


Let the SOS know that you expect better!

  • The deadline for comments is May 1st

  • Letters must be physically in the hands of the SOS office by the close of May 1st

  • Send your letter via USPS by rush delivery to:

1500 11th Street, Fifth Floor

Sacramento CA 95814

  • Or fax your letter to Mr. Padilla – FAX number: 916-653-3214

Thank you for continuing to work toward restoring integrity in our election Process!

Mountain lion killed after pouncing on California hunter who was mimicking rabbit call

CA & OR, Wildlife

Sac Bee.com

March 2, 2017

 A California coyote hunter found the roles of predator and prey reversed last week when a big cat pounced on him and he shot the cougar.

The incident occurred Friday near the northern shore of Mono Lake, between Yosemite National Park and the Nevada border.

The hunter, dressed in camouflage and lying on his belly, was blowing a call that mimicked a wounded rabbit in an effort to lure a hungry coyote, said Lt. Bill Dailey of the Department of Fish and Wildlife. The hunter spotted a flash of movement and looked over his shoulder just in time to watch a mountain lion leap toward his head.

He threw up his hands to protect his face, the animal struck, bounded away, and the hunter fired twice, killing the cat, Dailey said. The entire ordeal played out in mere moments.

“It happened extremely fast,” Dailey said. “He didn’t even have time to aim. … It was 100 percent instinctual. It wasn’t like he was premeditating this.”

The hunter, whose name has not been released, sustained a minor injury to his head, and went to an area hospital for rabies shots. He notified wildlife officers that he had killed a mountain lion, a species protected under state law. Following an investigation, wildlife officers determined he was justified in shooting the cougar “given the suddenness of the attack” and the “fear for his life.” He won’t be charged.

As for why the cougar pounced, investigators believe the cat likely mistook the hunter for the injured rabbit he was mimicking. Coyotes are legal to hunt year-round in California.

California senator removed from floor after criticizing late lawmaker Tom Hayden


PNP comment: Hummm! Is the  1st Amendment under attack in the CA. Senate? — Editor Liz Bowen

The California Senate was thrown into chaos and anger on Thursday when a Republican member was forcibly removed from the floor for allegedly speaking out of turn during a session.

Republican colleagues say Sen. Janet Nguyen, R-Garden Grove, was silenced by the Democratic majority when the Senate sergeant-at-arms escorted her from the chamber as Nguyen tried to criticize the late Democratic lawmaker Tom Hayden for his stance against the Vietnam War.

“I’m enraged at the violation to free speech, our Constitution and the precedent this sets,” said Senate Republican Leader Jean Fuller, who asked the Senate Rules Committee to look into what happened and make sure there is no “retribution” against Nguyen for the incident.

HAYDEN OBITUARY: Tom Hayden, ’60s activist and liberal statesman, dead at 76

Nguyen, a Vietnamese refugee who represents a large Vietnamese community in Orange County, said she was shaken up and “quite upset” at being removed. Two days after the Senate memorialized Hayden, who traveled to North Vietnam with then-wife Jane Fonda in 1974, Nguyen said she wanted to offer “another historical perspective.”

“He sided with the communist government that enslaved and killed millions of Vietnamese, including my family,” Nguyen said. Without U.S. support for South Vietnam, “I wouldn’t be here today. I would be dead.”

At an unrelated press conference later, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said he was “greatly unsettled (by) what took place on the floor.”

De León, a Los Angeles Democrat, agreed to the Rules Committee review and said he would talk to Nguyen and Fuller. But he added that the situation “could have easily been dealt with” if they had followed parliamentary procedure.

Nguyen attempted to make her comments during the adjourn-in-memory portion of the Senate floor session, when members typically offer tributes to constituents who have recently died. After first delivering her comments in Vietnamese, Nguyen was quickly cut off as she tried to repeat them in English.

“Members, today I recognize in memory the millions of Vietnamese and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese refugees who died in seeking for freedom and democracy,” she said. “On Tuesday, you had an opportunity to honor Sen. Tom Hayden. With all due respect, I would like to offer this historical perspective …”

Presiding Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, interrupted Nguyen and gave the floor to Sen. Bill Monning, D-Carmel, who said Nguyen was out of order because she did not raise her objections during the Hayden tribute ceremony two days before. Nguyen continued to speak for several minutes, even as Lara repeatedly asked her to take a seat and then eventually ordered the sergeants to remove her.

“Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen from the chamber,” Lara said. “Have her removed immediately. Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen, she is out of order.”

Editorial: State, feds must answer for Oroville Dam fiasco

SJ Mercury News

Federal and state officials have a lot to answer for in the wake of the Oroville Dam fiasco. They decided in 2005 to ignore warnings that the massive earthen spillway adjacent to the dam itself could erode during heavy winter rains — which it has done — and cause a calamity, which it very nearly did this week and could yet do by the end of this winter.

Trump threatens to defund ‘out of control’ California


President Donald Trump is threatening to withhold federal funds from “out of control” California if the state declares itself a sanctuary state.

“If we have to, we’ll defund,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly before the Super Bowl. “We give tremendous amounts of money to California, California in many ways is out of control, as you know.”
