Let’s see, High Speed Rail has a $50,000,000 cost over run on 2 miles of a 32 mile job. Does that mean we can expect total cost overrun of $25 million per mile times 32 miles or $800,000,000?

SB 32 (Pavely, D): This terrible bill expands the authority of the California Air Resources Board and sets greenhouse gas emissions standards to 40% of 1990 levels by 2030. This will tie one hand behind the backs of our small businesses in California and drive more out of the state.
AB 197 (Garcia, D): AB 197 is a companion bill to SB 32, intending to give the legislature more oversight over the California Air Resources Board. Moderate Democrats were lulled into a false sense of security by voting for this companion bill. CARB will still have total and utter control in the levying and raising of fees on Californians, all in the name of “green”.
AB 2466 (Webber, D): This bill would allow felons serving jail time to vote FROM JAIL. Yes, you read that right. Does that seem reasonable?
AB 2532 (Chiu, D): Current law requires each state or local government agency or community action agency, or any private organization contracting with a state or local government agency, that provides specified employment services to post in a prominent location in the workplace a notice stating that only citizens or those persons legally authorized to work in the United States will be permitted to use the agency's or organization's employment services that are funded by the federal or state government, as specified. This bill would repeal the above-described requirements. Why is this even considered?

Trump is winning over independents by a double-digit margin, 47 percent to 26 percent, and he has a similar edge with male and white voters. Clinton leads among female voters and African-Americans by nearly 50 points and Hispanics by 10 points.

Remember that ‘Republican Woman for Clinton’: She’s a healthcare lobbyist married to a Clinton operative
...After Jennifer Pierotti Lim spoke at the Democratic convention last month, the New York Times interviewed her, describing her only as "the founder of the volunteer group Republican Women for Hillary."
Cosmo and the Huffington Post, to their credit, mentioned Lim's employer: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. None of these publications, in their positive profiles of the Clinton backer, mentioned her occupation: Lobbyist.
A lobbyist for the largest lobbying entity in the country gets on stage to praise a presidential candidate, and her job is basically omitted from descriptions of her. That seems odd.
A final detail that strikes me as relevant: Her husband is an alumnus of the Hillary Clinton campaign, and is a partner in a firm that has pocketed about $20 million from Clinton's campaign and the DNC.

Leonardo DiCaprio has backed out of hosting a high-dollar fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at his Los Angeles home.
DiCaprio cited a change in production scheduling for the documentary Before the Flood, which he is producing, as reason for ditching the fundraiser.
He asked movie star pals Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake to host the $33,400-per guest luncheon at the couple’s home in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday, Page Six reported.
The Justice Department recently filed a complaint against DiCaprio and his eponymous foundation for the actor allegedly playing a part in an embezzlement case that took $3 million from 1MDB, a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund. The complaint does not target DiCaprio but raises questions about transparency and accountability with his foundation.
Trump is planning trips to urban areas — with stops at churches, charter schools and small businesses in black and Latino communities — and is developing an empowerment agenda based on the economy and education, aides said. Under consideration is an early September visit to Detroit, where retired neurosurgeon and former Republican primary rival Ben Carson would guide him on a tour of the impoverished neighborhoods where he grew up.

Frank Luntz: Democrats in my focus group had a more negative response to Hillary's lies than Republicans
A veteran Republican pollster tested some of Hillary Clinton's statements about her honesty on a focus group, and the results weren't pretty.
On CBS News on Monday, Frank Luntz showed voters video clips of the Democratic nominee, and Democrats actually reacted more negatively than Republicans when seeing Clinton attempt to defend her honesty.
In the first clip, Clinton tells CBS that she has always "tried" to tell the truth.
A chart on-screen that measured voters' reactions showed the green line, for Democrats, plunging even farther than Republicans' when Clinton insisted that she doesn't believe she's ever lied.
Luntz said it was "one of the worst responses on the campaign trail" he'd ever seen, and "not just in this election."
"You don't try to tell the truth — either you do or you don't," Luntz said. "The more that she said, the lower the line went, not just for Republicans but for Democrats as well."...

...“The slaughter of French priest Father Jacques Hamel on July 26 in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray was significant,” he says. “The church where Father Jacques Hamel was saying mass was nearly empty. Five people were present; three nuns and two faithful. Most of the time, French churches are empty. Christianity in France is dying out. Jacques Hamel was almost 86 years old; despite his age, he did not want to retire. He knew it would be difficult to find someone to replace him. Priests of European descent are now rare in France, as in many European countries. The priest officially in charge of the parish of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, Auguste Moanda-Phuati, is Congolese.”
He adds: “The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. It teaches them instead that colonialism plundered many poor countries, that colonized people had to fight to free themselves, and that the fight is not over. It teaches them to hate France.”
So the future of France, he writes, is more terror....

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.
Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism.
"The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days," the newspaper quoted the government's "Concept for Civil Defence" - which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry - as saying.

Exposing crony relationships with Obama Admin... https://t.co/rN7Hzi7VyK— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) August 22, 2016
The Oracle Corporation is using its deep financial resources to fund the “Google Transparency Project,” which has set up headquarters in Washington, D.C. with a mission to “out” Google’s dicey lobbying practices and expose crony relationships with President Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
With Google demonstrating its political clout by essentially writing the “Net Neutrality” regulatory language, Oracle and others are stepping up funding for a Silicon Valley attack dog to level the playing field.
Silicon Valley has earned the nickname “Valley of the Democrats” from the TechCrunch blog because of its symbiotic business relationship with Washington. But as Breitbart News reported last year, Google’s $16,830,000 in lobbying expenditure dominated the $139.5 million spent by both the computer and Internet industries.

The Huffington Post, one of the world’s most trafficked news sites, featured a headline on Sunday calling for the closure of the embattled Clinton Foundation. The left-wing outlet’s front page banner linked to a New York Times article, which highlights, among other things, that Bill and Hillary Clinton’s billion dollar nonprofit has “accepted tens of millions of dollars from countries that the State Department — before, during and after Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary — criticized for their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues.”
The Huffington Post is just the latest outlet to acknowledge that the explosive research, found first in Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash, has inspired a massive movement of journalists and political figures — on the left, right, and center — calling on the Clintons to dismantle their problematic nonprofit.
The Times piece shines the spotlight on “a deal involving the sale of American uranium holdings to a Russian state-owned enterprise” — another revelation first revealed in Clinton Cash — “… which involved major Clinton charitable backers from Canada …” as “another example of the foundation intersecting with Mrs. Clinton’s official role in the Obama administration.”

Last Saturday, a group called DC Leaks posted over 2,500 documents hacked from the Open Society Foundations (OSF), a group run by leftist billionaire George Soros. The leak reveals Soros' funding of a wide range of activities: the Black Lives Matter movement, influencing the European elections in 2014, swaying a Supreme Court decision, smearing political activists, and attacking the nation of Israel.
But you likely haven't heard about these key "dark money" revelations. Soros has given $7 million to the pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA and has dedicated $25 million to support Democrats and their causes. His fundraising matters politically, and should be a big story.
But The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, CBS News, and other major media outlets did not even report on the leak, much less the stories revealed by it.
To rectify this coverage gap, PJ Media is presenting 5 of the biggest stories released so far. Enjoy!
(These are big stories, and the media should be reporting on them. Help spur the discussion by sharing this article!)
