Whether you're a conservative, libertarian, moderate Democrat, or just someone with common sense, the California Underground is dedicated to pushing back on the extreme left that has overrun our state. We talk California politics and some national politics and how we can stop extreme leftists from ruining our beautiful state.

California is one of the last states to reopen public schools for in person learning. The California Teacher's Association won't budge and Noodles doesn't seem to want to press them on it. So parents are starting to get into school choice. We discuss how school choice can break the monopoly unions and government can have on our children's education.

Not only does he not listen to his own guidelines, he is dining with an oil and gas lobbyist who was awarded oil permits in 2019 when Newsom became Governor. For all the greenies out there who think Newsom cares about climate change and the environment, take note that he says one thing in public and does another in private.
In a move that I predicted coming, Kevin Faulconer appears to be the rising challenger to Newsom in 2022. In my opinion he would be the perfect moderate solution to Newsom and his brand of extreme left policies. Turning around California will be like turning around an aircraft carrier.

While it may be tempting to launch an all out revolution in California to "turn it red" the truth is turning any state around is going to require a long game that the Republicans need to learn how to play.

As we continue to see the sharp drop off from the doomsday predictions back in March, citizens are starting to ask why their governments aren't letting them out.
Alan Dershowitz, respected attorney and professor, gets it completely wrong on the notion that the Constitution does not grant you the right to not have the state "plunge a needle into your arm." We discuss the police power and how far government can go, and it's much less than Dershowitz says.
Alan Dershowitz States Government Absolutely Has the Power to Plunge Needle In Your Arm
Text from California Supreme Court Case Miller v. Board of Public Works of City of Los Angeles:
The police power of a state is an indispensable prerogative of sovereignty and one that is not to be lightly limited. Indeed, even though at times its operation may seem harsh, the imperative necessity for its existence precludes any limitation upon its exercise save that it be not unreasonably and arbitrarily invoked and applied. Hadacheck v. Sebastian, 239 U. S. 394, 36 S. Ct. 143, 60 L. Ed. 348, Ann. Cas. 1917B, 927; District of Columbia v. Brooke, 214 U. S. 138, 149, 29 S. Ct. 560, 53 L. Ed. 941. It is not, however, illimitable and the marking and measuring of the extent of its exercise and application is determined by a consideration of the question of whether or not any invocation of that power, in any given case, and as applied to existing conditions, is reasonably necessary to promote the public health, safety, morals (Railroad Co. v. Husen, 95 U. S. 465, 470, 471, 24 L. Ed. 527; Beer Co. v. Massachusetts, 97 U. S. 25, 24 L. Ed. 989), or general welfare of the people of a community (Chicago, B. & Q. Ry. Co. v. Ill., 200 U. S. 561, 592, 26 S. Ct. 341, 50 L. Ed. 596, 4 Ann. Cas. 1175). In short, the police power, as such, is not confined within the narrow circumscription of precedents, resting upon past conditions which do not cover and control present day conditions obviously calling for revised regulations to promote the health, safety, morals, or general welfare of the public; that is to say, as a commonwealth develops politically, economically, and socially, the police power likewise develops, within reason, to meet the changed and changing conditions. What was at one time regarded as an improper exercise of the police power may now, because of changed living conditions, be recognized as a legitimate exercise of that power. This is so because:
‘What was a reasonable *485 exercise [of this power] in the days of our fathers may to-day seem so utterly unreasonable as to make it difficult for us to comprehend the existence of conditions that would justify same; what would by our fathers have been rejected as unthinkable is to-day accepted as a most proper and reasonable exercise thereof.’ Streich v. Board of Education, 34 S. D. 169, 147 N. W. 779, L. R. A. 1915A, 632, Ann. Cas. 1917A, 760. Miller v. Board of Public Works of City of Los Angeles (1925) 195 Cal. 477, 484–485 [234 P. 381, 383]
When you realize the reason people are so obsessed with you wearing a mask is a direct result of the safe space culture it all starts to make sense. It's not about them being empathetic, it's about being selfish for their own safety over everything else.
Mike Garcia winning California 25th could be a sign of good things to come, but we have a long way to go to even begin turning the tide here in California.

Newsom Implies Communities Won’t Be Allowed to Lift Stay at Home Orders Until State Says So
Is Politics the Reason Governor Newsom Keeping California Locked Down?
Governments have forgotten the inalienable rights that they were created to protect as they continue to impose draconian measures.
President Trump is ready to start reopening America, and California may not be far behind if they are to try and prevent economic and fiscal collapse.

With every passing day, our Constitutional rights continue to whither away as we succumb to the rules and regulations being put into place by our governments.
Along with the continued assault on our rights, the Left has figured out this is the perfect opportunity to push their progressive agenda as far as possible; gun control, open borders, climate change, all of it is there.

While governors like Cuomo and Newsom are complaining that they don't have the necessary equipment to battle the coronavirus, California had mobile hospitals specifically created to meet the emergency needs of the state for this specific purpose but was scrapped because of "budget reasons" in 2011.
Newsom and Pelosi both see opportunity to push through a progressive agenda during this pandemic. Search "Cloward-Piven Strategy" and see how politicians are seeing this as an opportunity to change our political and societal landscape going forward.
How is California faring so well when a state like New York is quickly becoming a mess? Is it only because of social distancing or are there other factors at play?

A popular meme is floating around asking "Are you enjoying your 30 day free trial of socialism?" It's a good question because if anyone wants to know what's it like to live in a socialist country, this is pretty darn close.
A lot of politicians are trusting doomsday scenarios and bad predictions, it doesn't mean you should either. It's already been shown that a lot of the doomsday predictions are based on faulty models. It is your right and duty to ask questions and not be afraid to be skeptical of what is going on out there.

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, when pressed at a press conference she used to simply score political points, says that she didn't want to turn the presser into a political issue over AB5. It is evident that she doesn't understand, or is being stubborn on how poorly her bill has hurt the California economy and workers.

Coronavirus has forced us all in the house, but my opinion is that the worst is behind us. While the Media and the Left tried to use this to sink President Trump, it will be another failed attempt.
California may have hit the breaking point with taxes. Voters rejected Prop 13 which was supposed to raise billions for schools through the issuance of a bond and yet it was voted down. Are Californians finally figuring out bonds = debt and to pay off the debt you need to raise taxes?

Even when something as good as American military killing the leader of ISIS happens, Leftists can't even give an ounce of praise to the Trump Administration. In the words of someone I spoke with "I will not give any credibility or praise to this administration no matter what."
Did you hear that? It might be howling cries of shock from the Left as the Durham investigation turns into a criminal investigation. This means that he can now assemble grand juries, subpoena witnesses, and maybe get some underlings to flip on the top dogs.
California is a mess of wild fires and soaring gas prices. So what is Gruesome Newsom to do? Well blame evil capitalism and oil companies of course! No way over regulation, high taxes, and incompetent leadership could be behind right?

Like the good socialist Elizabeth Warren is, she dances around how you are going to get all this free stuff without raising taxes on the middle class. Mostly because she knows that by saying so will be political suicide with her as the front runner. Her opponents know this and are hitting her hard on it too.
When everyday people are given the choice between fighting climate change and self preservation, majority of people pick self preservation. What a shocker right?
Gruesome Newsom pulls a fast one (that everyone should have expected) and diverted money from the gas tax to pay for stuff that will help combat climate change. Also in other Gruesome news, he signed into law AB 5 which will further destroy working Californians ability to make a living by effectively banning independent contractors from being able to work.

In this lucky episode we dive into the impeachment mania and why strategically Nancy Pelosi has painted herself into quite the corner that she can't get out of. Is impeachment already DOA? Then we talk about something that was swept under the rug with all the impeachment mania and that is AOC's Green New Deal 2.0 AKA her "Just Society" bill and why it looks like something out of California.
Gruesome Newsom has been busy putting all the blame on PG&E for blackouts across the state, all the while he signs 15 anti-gun bills into law in California. Gray Davis was recalled for less, and now we can make a Newsom recall a reality.

This episode talks all about how the California Primary for the Democratic Nominee affects the Presidential race, for better or for worse. But even in a state that is deep blue, the Democrats are not without their problems. There is a war going on nationally and locally within the Democratic Party of which faction wins. Is it the establishment, corporatist, faction or the far left socialist faction? And if the Democratic Party chooses a California style Democrat for President, how badly will they be beaten in the general election?

Similar to how Game of Thrones fans are upset with the ending of the show, Leftists are upset with how the Mueller Report ended and making desperate attempts to try and change the ending to fit their narrative. Desperate attempts like banning conservatives on social media before 2020, and illegally obtaining President Trump's tax returns.
Speaking of which, the Left may have given President Trump a gift by showing how he was the comeback kid in the 90's. Going from billions in debt to back on top of the world. There is nothing Americans love more than a good comeback story, and the Left has just given President Trump the best story to tell ahead of 2020.
California politicians are scratching their heads to figure out why gas prices are so high (could it be all the taxes and regulations?). Even though people brag about California being the 5th largest economy in the world (according to a new Bloomberg study), it doesn't change the fact that California is also number 1 in state debt, poverty, and income inequality.

As someone who grew up in New Jersey, 9/11 was not "just something some people did." Representative Omar's remarks are disgusting and insulting to millions of Americans who remember it, and thousands who were directly affected by it. It's becoming more and more clear this Justice Democrat is working to tear down American institutions.
President Trump makes a brilliant move to show the hypocrisy of Leftists regarding Sanctuary Cities. They used to say how Sanctuary Cities were much safer, the economy was better, yada yada yada. Basically they were heaven on earth. But now with the threat of (in their words) the federal government "dumping" illegal immigrants into their cities, they are calling foul and worried it will cause problems.
A recent study shows that California citizens are starting to approach "taxuration" where citizens can no longer stand anymore taxes. What does this mean for Gavin Newsom's ambitious plans going forward?
That and much more in this episode.

With the Mueller Report now out, leftists continue to grasp to their decaying reality they have been telling themselves for two years. Instead of feeling bad about spreading so much disinformation and lies, they double down and believe there must be something on President Trump they can use to get him out of office.
Jussie Smollett walks free and instead of leaving gracefully and thanking his lucky stars that he got off so easy, he turns around and says he will sue the City of Chicago for slandering his name. Then his attorneys continue to believe he was really attacked, except they were in white face which is why he couldn't identify them.
Governor Newsom heads off to El Salvador to ask them how he can help them send more migrants to our cash strapped state for more freebies. Instead of worrying about the tax paying citizens of California, he goes to Central American countries on bended knee asking how he can better help them. Never mind that we have crumbling roads, housing that is unaffordable, and record poverty. We need more migrants.

It's finally Mueller time! And the result? A big nothing burger. But just because you think the Mueller investigation is over, doesn't mean the Far Left has given up. They are calling for more investigations because they now believe Mueller may have been compromised. So while the chapter closes on this 2 year long episode, it doesn't stop leftists from coming after President Trump with everything they got.
In California news, Governor Newsom continues his transformation into mad dictator of California. After flaunting his power and enacting a completely unconstitutional Executive Order, he now threatens to withhold money from localities if they don't comply with his vision for affordable housing. All while he critiques President Trump for withholding funds for the now defunct high speed rail that will never get built.
And in closing, should conservative be our mantra moving forward? What are we trying to preserve? Because right now if we are trying to preserve the status quo, it would be pretty crappy.

Tucker Carlson made an important point this week when he said that it is important that we never bow to the mob, ever. When it comes to them trying to silence anyone who dissents from the far left narrative, we can't let them do it. 2020 is right around the corner and they are amping up to make sure there isn't a repeat of 2016.
President Trump states that he is looking into declaring Mexican cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations. This will have a huge impact on battling against a crisis at our border.
This past week Gavin Newsom declared that he was putting an end to the death penalty in California via Executive Order. However, according to the California Constitution, you can't repeal an amendment via EO, nor does the language in Prop 17 (the one that instituted the death penalty) say it can be repealed via EO. So why is the Left screaming about how President Trump is a dictator when he's exercising his Congressionally approved powers, but not when Gavin Newsom is clearly violating the California Constitution.

Welcome to the Church of Climate Change, where your personal rights and property come second, no questions asked. If you think it sounds a little cultish and fanatical, it's because it is.
California is walking a tight rope with its budget and reliance on the highest earners in the state. What happens when a couple thousand of those high earners decide to head towards the exit in favor of greener pastures? It's not pretty and California could be in for a world of hurt.
In no surprise to anyone, we dive into whether the Sanctuary State law was put into place to benefit a Democratic lawmaker's personal family. California continues to thumb their nose at the federal government and the Supremacy Clause when it comes to immigration. At what point do lawful California citizens get tired and push back?

In this episode the main topic is how the CAGOP caves to the establishment and votes for a swamp creature in Jessica Patterson and how this spells doom and gloom for the future of conservative politics in California.
Bernie Sanders enters the race for President, but several videos of him going full pinko commy surface and show how the thought of pushing back on communism makes him physically sick.
The Ballad of Jussie Smollet comes to an interesting close as the Chicago PD figure out that he staged the whole thing. The Looney Left is caught flat footed and abandon their support of him.
Plus I play with audio clips for the first time.
On this episode I discuss how Governor Newsom's fiscal conservatism is merely for political gain and not for the benefit of Californians.
In national news, there is the issue of President Trump's national emergency on the border wall and how RINO's and puritanical conservatives cry foul whenever he doesn't live up to their expectation. Then I touch upon the Green Pipe Dream (aka the Green New Deal) and how the Looney Left keeps marching down the road of socialism.
In state news, I discuss the race for CAGOP Chairman and how Jessica Paterson is a swamp creature hoping to keep the CAGOP a party of losers. Then I dive into the rampant homelessness in California and how in the end, California and it's spending on social welfare has become just like the High Speed Rail, a train to nowhere.

I discuss an article from The Federalist on Senator Kamala Harris (and confuse how to say her name numerous times) and the hard questions she should be facing but won't be facing.
Then I discuss Governor Newsom, the new hypocrite sitting in the Governor's Mansion about his recent move to a mostly white, upper class neighborhood far away from the diverse Sacramento neighborhood where the Governor's Mansion is.
