The Coalition That Will Realign California

    By Edward Ring What’s happening in California today is bigger than Newsom’s failures as a governor Poor governance, beginning long before the bungled response to the COVID-19 pandemic, has led to a recall campaign that may very well put California Governor Newsom into a fight for his political life in the Spring of 2021.

Citizen Initiatives Transform Oxnard Politics

The Battle for California is the Battle for America

The Battle for California is the Battle for America

    By Edward Ring By now, this is a familiar story. California is a failed state. Thanks to years of progressive mismanagement and neglect, the cities are lawless and the forests are burning. Residents pay the highest prices in America for unreliable electricity. Water is rationed. Homes are unaffordable. The public schools are a joke. […]
