Orange County is not the Republican bastion it used to be. Consider that in this week’s 2016 Primary Election the Democratic Presidential nominees, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, together netted over 130K votes while the GOP nominee, Donald Trump, only totaled 151K votes.
But the news gets worse for the OC GOP. Look at how poorly the Orange County Republican candidates for legislative offices did on June 7: Continue reading

Protesters marched in front of the White House in an effort to keep raising awareness about the deportation of illegal immigrants. Chanting “Not One More,” protesters held up handmade signs painted with President Obama’s face and the words “Deporter in Chief. 2 Millones,” a reference to an estimated two million immigrants deported under the Obama administration, according to Andrew Elfenbein at the Guardian Liberty Voice.
Over 40 separate rallies were held around the country, organized by the National Day Labor Organizing Network, and timed to coincide with the estimated millstone of two million deportations. Money allocated for enforcement has continued its twenty year rise, and a study by the Migration Policy Institute found the US was spending more money defending the borders and rounding up immigrants in the interior than the country was spending on all major federal law enforcement agencies combined.
Now Obama’s administration is even moving to deport schoolteachers who came to this country under a Federal program that granted them H-1B visas. All was well until a number of school districts in California and Texas blew it and failed to correctly process the visa renewal applications. Continue reading
