Episode 108- OMG Schmariant, LA Safe Pass, Noodles' $200k Vacay to Cabo
On this episode I am joined once again by Natalie Beisner to discuss several topics going on in California right now.  First, we talk about the OMG Schmariant arriving in California and what it means for the country. Are lockdowns on the way? Will the government continue to crack down even tighter? Or will it burn out like Delta did? In Los Angeles City, they have rolled out what is called a LA Safe Pass program where you must show proof of vaccination to enter many businesses. However, the City Council voted unanimously that shopping malls are exempt from this, because of...well science I guess.  Finally we discuss Noodles' latest French Laundry gaffe, where he allegedly spent $200,000 for a week stay in Cabo. Who paid for it? How does a public servant have this much money to spend on one vacation?

Join us every Wednesday morning at 9am on IG Live to be a part of Coffee and California Politics  This week we go over how to get past the defeatist mindset that the Democrats will just cheat and steal the election with mail in ballot. We go over how elections will actually happen in California for the recall (including that you can vote in person for the recall). Also we discuss how you can be a part of the election process as an election observer or poll worker.  We also discuss how the CAGOP needs new messaging and needs to present a platform for the 21st century and point out how regressive California Democrats really are.

On this episode I sit down with the CEO and Founder of Adam Andrzejewski of Open the Books, an organization dedicated to exposing the spending and waste across the United States.  We discuss how the program started and how much public officials are raking in (did you know an LA lifeguard can make up to $300,00?) Listen in and learn how you can help support Open the Books in their efforts to expose all the corruption and wasteful spending.  If you would like to support the California Underground platform please consider becoming a Patreon member by going to www.patreon.com/californiaunderground

Episode 84 - Will Lockdowns Break California Democrats?
Natalie Beisner joins me again as special co-host to discuss why is California looking to go backwards on reopening? We look at the data from the California COVID Dashboard and statements from the CDC.  We also look at the "Stop the Republican Recall" videos to fact check them and point out how incredibly ridiculous they are and how the Democrats always planned on using January 6th to stop the recall (forget that it is a constitutionally protected right of Californians to do so).  To support the California Underground platform consider becoming a member of our Patreon by going to www.patreon.com/californiaunderground and becoming a member.
