California Overcome by Class Warfare

  By Richard Eber, California Political News and Views Last week the media was inundated with stories about the horrendous massacre of 9 American citizens including 6 children in Mexico near the border with the United States.

Dog and Pony Show Needs To End

Dog and Pony Show Needs To End

  By Richard Eber, California Political News and Views Like most internet junkies “Wikipedia” is my go to authority on just about everything.

Newsom used Goldilocks Syndrome to destroy PG&E

  Richard Eber, California Political News and Views Like most people who have lived their entire lives in California, I’m not exactly in love with PG&E.

All My Friends

All My Friends

To Recall or Not Recall?

  By Ricard Eber, California Political News Recall Gavin Newsom.  Why not?  If  Democrats in the House of Representatives want to kick a sitting President out of office because of the word of a so called whistle blower who learned of  his conversation with the  newly elected leader of The Ukraine second hand, anything is […]

California Leads the Way in Demo Slugfest

California Leads the Way in Demo Slugfest

  By Richard Eber, California Political News and Views   Unfortunately for Kamala Harris, the title to the Beach Boys classic song “I wish they all could be California Girls’” no longer applies to her faltering presidential campaign. As the Democratic nomination process unfolds, the Junior Senator from California has found her support hovering at around […]

Over the Road Collateral Damage

Over the Road Collateral Damage

  By Richard Eber, California Political Review “Collateral Damage” is the terminology that is used to describe the unintended consequences of a policy or action.  Usually the results aren’t good.  This is not a situation where climate change allows farmers to commercially grow oranges in Alaska.
