It looks like the days of California Dreamin’ are behind us.

California is very much a tale of two states:  Beachfront millionaires in the south, working class Americans up in the northern parts.

This has led to plenty of infighting in the Golden State, with talks of secession from one another running rampant in the last few years.

The movement even had its own hashtag, #CALEXIT, which looks like it may become used again, but in an entirely different context.

A new poll reveals that 53% of California residents are considering leaving the Golden State because of the high cost of living.

The “Trust Barometer” poll, by Edelman Intelligence, was conducted January 4-20 among 1,500 California residents, with a margin of error of 2.5%. A special oversample of 400 tech workers in the San Francisco Bay Area was also conducted, with a margin of error of 4.8%.

The results are sobering. Nearly two-thirds, 62%, of respondents said they believed the best days of California were in the past.

With California’s legislative branch being represented by the population heavy, and liberal leaning southern portion of the state, California has been attempting to tax and regulate their way out of trouble for decades.  This burdens the state with a great many otherwise unnecessary costs that, of course, get passed down to the taxpayer, raising the cost of living to exorbitant heights.

Here is where it gets crazy:

In addition, more than two-thirds, 68%, of Californians, believe the tech industry has been under-regulated — up 6% from 2018. That proportion is slightly higher among tech employees, 69% of whom think their industry has been under-regulated. 58% of Californians said the tech industry should be more regulated, up 12% from last year.

Nearly three-fourths of residents, 72%, say “cost and availability of housing is a very serious issue for California” — rising to 76% in the Bay Area.

And 62% of residents say “homelessness is a very serious issue for California. The proportion in the Bay Area is the same.

It looks like the days of California Dreamin’ are behind us.

Ivanka Trump Responds To CNN Panel Mocking Trump Supporters, Says What They Did Is ‘Disgusting’

Published

on

A panel on CNN mocked Trump supporters over the weekend in a video that has since gone viral and earned the ire of not only those who back the president, the president himself, but also his family members. Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter came to the defense of millions of Americans who voted for her father in the previous 2016 election, calling what the panel did “disgusting.” In the video, CNN host Don Lemon and friends made fun of Trump fans, calling them “rubes” who can’t read or do basic math. Here’s more on what Ivanka said about the whole fiasco via The Daily Wire: Early Tuesday morning, Trump’s daughter Ivanka took CNN to task for the panel, pointing out that the network constantly bemoans the divisions in the country while making fun of those who don’t vote Democrat. “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,” Ivanka tweeted. “The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.” https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump/status/1222126462347681793 As The Daily Wire previously reported, the panel consisted of writer Wajahat Ali and Republican consultant Rick Wilson, who claimed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it.” Wilson later went on to dawn a horrible fake southern accent and said, “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb.” Here’s a full transcript…

CNN Panel Mocks Trump Supporters In Viral Video; President Calls Don Lemon ‘Dumbest Man On Television’

Published

on

Popular left-wing news outlet CNN has a well earned reputation for being a little less than trustworthy when it comes to the stories they pursue and cover for their viewers, but what’s worse is how they treat folks who tend to have a different worldview than the one they ascribe to. A recent clip, which has gone viral, of a panel on CNN disparaging Trump supporters is proves this claim to be true, but thankfully, we have a president who isn’t afraid to punch back and to defend his backers when someone attacks them. Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire: In the discussion, which occurred over the weekend, the host, Don Lemon, and two Trump critics, op-ed writer Wajahat Ali and Republican Rick Wilson, suggest that Trump supporters are illiterate “rubes” who can’t read a map or do basic math. Speaking of Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, Wilson said that he “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it” — a line that Lemon found side-splittingly hilarious. Wilson then widened his mockery to include Trump’s “base” of supporters. “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb,” said Wilson, adopting a southern accent. “You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling…” mocked Ali. “Your math, your reading,” said Wilson. “Yes, your reading, you know,” Ali added. “Your geography knowing other countries. Sipping your latte.” “All…
