When the D is More Important Than Deported Immigrants

Today’s headlines tout Democratic legislator’s stated goals of protecting undocumented immigrants by “urging President-elect Donald Trump to refrain from pursuing mass deportations and introducing urgent legislation to fund immigration lawyers and help public defenders protect the state's immigrants.” In their excitement to reiterate the Democrat’s words, California reporters forgot to ask one VERY important question: Where were all of you when President Barack Obama was deporting three million immigrants?

Progressive San Francisco Gentry Reject Low-Income Seniors

In 2015, San Francisco overwhelmingly voted (74.6% yes, 25.74% no) in favor of Local Measure A, a housing bond that authorized the City’s use of up to $310 million to fund affordable housing programs. Once plans were put in place for a new affordable housing project for low-income seniors in the affluent Forest Hill community, however, NIMBY residents took out their pitchforks.

The president of the Forest Hill Association labeled the project a “Russian gulag.” Other residents worried about how these “low income seniors would change the feel of the area.”

Ironic? How could this happen? By every indicator, the wealthy community of Forest Hill qualifies as a Democratic paradise. It’s an area with $1–1.4 million homes, single-digit Republican registration and where 78% voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but just 14% for Donald Trump.

Why, if they voted in favor of the affordable housing bond, are they opposing its implementation in their community? 

Could it be that being progressive is only a one-way proposition, never something to apply to your own neighborhood?

The California Republican Party created the Lorelei Kinder Award, honoring dedicated service in the name of the Republican Party. This memorial award honors former Executive Director Lorelei Kinder, who passed away in 2012 in honor of her lifetime of indefatigable work on behalf of the Republican Party. Lorelei has always had a special place in our hearts and devoted many hours to assisting young volunteers and activists.

The award is given at the CRP’s convention immediately following the election to a young volunteer who has demonstrated outstanding involvement and potential with the California Republican Party. The candidate for the award needs to have been heavily involved in campaign activities.  The applicant should be 25 years or younger.

Biography of Lorelei Kinder

Lorelei Kinder was a woman of many aspects: mother, wife, politico, avocado grower, and most importantly, a mentor. Through the decades, Lorelei fostered and helped shape new generations of youth activists who would go on to be consultants, party board members, elected officials, and true believers of the Conservative gospel. No one believed more in the core principals of the Grand Old Party. Lorelei was everything young activists in politics aspire to be. She was selected to be the first female Executive Director of the CRP in the late 1970s, and would later come back in the 1990s to fulfill the role once again. During President Reagan's run for President she was the Western Region Political Director and managed 13 states and their operations. Lorelei's political legacy will live on through the recipients of this award to be given annually to a deserving young, up and coming activist.

The Award

This award given to the deserving young activist includes a two-night complimentary room (room and parking) at the CRP Convention. The winner will also receive one ticket to the Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and Saturday dinner banquets, as well as the corresponding VIP receptions.

California GOP Urges Unity

By Senator Jim Brulte, Chairman

During the past year California Republicans have been listening as you share with us the challenges keeping you from succeeding and your fears for the future. We hear you, California, and are ready to fight for you.

We understand that the challenges facing California are unique. That is why we need California-centric solutions that will grow a more open California, full of opportunities to expand the middle class and raise people out of poverty through jobs, education and affordable housing.

Too many Californians have been left behind. Sacramento political elites have failed to notice or have ignored daily struggles confronting millions of Californians, many of whom are barely keeping up on necessities like housing and transportation.

The California dream fails when people must choose between a roof and basic necessities, when schools can’t hire the best staff to help launch their kids to greatness, when people feel compelled to abandon the life they have built here for what they hope will be a better future outside the Golden State.

Democrats have controlled both houses of the Legislature for two decades. This total control of policy making has left many of them out of touch and unwilling to truly lead in a time when we are in desperate need of modification.

For a state known around the globe as the home to tech entrepreneurs and innovation, we are sadly lacking inventive solutions from Democratic legislators. All California residents deserve an equal opportunity to succeed and to build the future they want for themselves and their families.

Republicans and Democrats should remember that our shared purpose is to lift people up and create a brighter future for all Californians. We need to see ourselves as part of a community. Republicans are prepared to lead California toward a stronger future but can’t do it alone. If we can do this together, our brightest days are ahead.


A call for a return to politics with true civility

Assemblyman Chad Mayes
Hallelujah!  The 2016 election is over, and we can finally all breathe a sigh of relief. Honestly, I can’t remember an election season as dark and divisive as the one we just experienced. The mean-spirited and fear mongering tactics used by both parties brought out the worst in all of us.
