As Democrats plunge leftward, they push moderates and Hispanics to the right

Eric Bartl Undesignated 3 Comments

In early 2021 I reported the details of an Antifa riot in Pacific Beach on January 9, 2021. Masked militants attacked at least 16 innocent victims. You’d think such an incident would receive universal condemnation from the media, politicians of both parties and even liberal political activists. But the media gave a watered-down characterization of Antifa’s violence and fabricated a …

Why You Should Vote for Kelly Martinez

San Diego County Gun Owners Undesignated 1 Comment

I recently posted an article discussing the reasons SDCGO rejected John Hemmerling as a candidate for San Diego County Sheriff.  You can read the many policy issues we have with Hemmerling HERE. Our vetting process led SDCGO to proudly endorse Undersheriff Kelly Martinez for San Diego County Sheriff. Here’s why. I met Kelly Martinez after she was promoted to Undersheriff, …

What’s Wrong with Gun Violence Restraining Orders?

San Diego County Gun Owners Undesignated 4 Comments

A champion of Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), John Hemmerling, is running for the top law enforcement office in San Diego and he is doing it as a Republican.  More often than not, Republicans are pro-Second Amendment and resist overreaching government policies that put gun owners at risk.  But not always. Here are some common questions I have gotten recently …

Dr. Fauci’s “Final Solution” and the World’s “Mass Formation Psychosis” – Something’s Fishy, Something’s Frightening

Eric Bartl Undesignated 3 Comments

Around the time Covid vaccines started rolling out under Emergency Use Authorization I saw an interview of Dr. Anthony Fauci. I think it was on MSNBC. He called Covid vaccines the “final solution.” The first thought that comes to mind when hearing the phrase “final solution” is the Holocaust. Why would Dr. Fauci use that phrase? Was it careless incompetence? …

Latest San Diego County Supervisors’ cockup

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated Leave a Comment

Our San Diego County Board of Supervisors has now flipped Democrat, thanks to our voters. The board is led by “El Flippo” himself — Nathan Fletcher. Here’s how our progressives run things — throwing more and more of our money at a problem while ignoring the abysmal results. In this case, the Supervisors simply gave $37 million more to a …

CA is now a PERMANENT blue state — for reasons few will understand

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated 7 Comments

Gavin Newsom’s lopsided victory was NOT the result of voter fraud. There was no NEED for voter fraud, though some doubtless occurred. Instead, the Democrats have stumbled across the LEGAL way to keep California voting Democrat — forever. It’s really simple: 1. Mail everyone a ballot. Previously one had to REQUEST a mail ballot. Automatic ballot mailings will become permanent …

Just-retired Chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego County Tony Krvaric sits down for this installment of the Edgy Interview. I’ve been after my friend and regular reader of The Edge for a couple years now and finally cajoled him into taking part. Tony mused to me about how cool it is to read about the “other side” of …

National total death rate now from all causes (including COVID-19) is BELOW the “expected total death rate”

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated 5 Comments

I can’t find a definitive study or conclusion about the effect of the coronavirus on the lost life expectancy of the people who die.  It’s something that is NOT being mentioned or considered by the press or pundits.  One early study claiming that the coronavirus cut 10 years off the average infected dead person’s life has been totally debunked.  But …

The surprisingly GOOD news in the California election results

Richard Rider, Chairman, San Diego Tax Fighters Undesignated Leave a Comment

In the midst of this California blue wave debacle, I found some remarkably GOOD news.  Mind you, I’m not a “good news” sort of guy. Let me be clear:  California is doomed.  I don’t expect that to change for decades, if ever. I write regularly about which states are best for fiscally sane, limited government, liberty loving Californians to flee …

Some post-election thoughts for 2020 One measure of a political party’s clout in the San Diego region comes down to the makeup of the most significant offices and delegations. Here are the Big Four: City of San Diego Mayor and City Council County Board of Supervisors State Legislative Delegations (Senate and Assembly) Congressional Delegation Sure, some may argue that the …

First 2020 Presidential Debate Winner is Biden. So, why do Biden supporters want debates to stop or change?

Brian Brady Brian Brady, Undesignated 2 Comments

The first Presidential debate of 2020 was a brawl. President Donald Trump serially interrupted former Vice-President Joe Biden, while Biden personally insulted Trump with name-calling. Biden called Trump a liar, racist, and clown. Social media users found it cute to say “nobody won and everybody lost.” But that’s not true. CNN reported that over 60 percent of its viewers declared …

The California population growth rate is slowing down — DRAMATICALLY by Richard Rider In recent years, our nation’s population growth rate has slowed. The 2019 U.S. Census population growth figures are now out.  The national population’s growth rate was only 0.5%.  That growth rate has been dropping annually for the last 5 years.    Indeed, it’s the slowest annual U.S. growth …

You just spent $2.3 million on your 900 sq ft condo, with sweeping views of the bay and bridge. It SOUNDS expensive but this is “The City” (as is written on the NBA team’s jerseys) .  You bought this place because of the exclusive access to the expansive rooftop deck. You’re proud of this purchase because it represents that you …
