Women on Boards Law Illustrates Leftist Lunacy

Women on Boards Law Illustrates Leftist Lunacy

Mandating that women must be on corporate boards based on their biological makeup is sheer discrimination, but progressives do not seem to realise the hilarious hypocrisy of such a law.

Contradiction is not a glitch in Woke ideology, it’s a feature.

This was perfectly illustrated in California, where — until last week — it was illegal for a business to discriminate against people on the basis of gender, and illegal for a business not to have at least one woman on their board of directors.

Wait. What?

Yes, you read that correctly.

In California, it was illegal to discriminate against people based on gender, except when appointing board directors, in which case you were required by law to discriminate against people based on gender.

As I often say: Cognitive dissonance, thy name is Leftism.

Not Fair

The Women on Boards law called for fines ranging from $100,000 for failing to report board compositions to the California secretary of state’s office to $300,000 for multiple failures to have the required number of women board members.

The law would have required companies to have a minimum of three female directors this year.

Fortunately, the Los Angeles County Superior Court has not been drinking the Woke Kool-Aid.

The Court ruled last week that requiring businesses to have female directors was unconstitutional because it required them to explicitly distinguish between individuals on the basis of gender.

No kidding.

It’s funny how Leftists always think the way to correct a perceived injustice is to implement actual injustice.

They typically address claims of sexism with actual sexism, and claims of racism with actual racism.

But that wasn’t the only hypocrisy.

Peak Trans

The law designed to promote gender equity defined a woman as anyone who “identifies as a woman”.

In other words, you could have an all-male board so long as one man thought of himself as a woman because — let’s face it — that’s close enough.

Leftists can’t even say “women’s rights” without making fools of themselves!

Judge Maureen Duffy Lewis ruled that the purpose of the law requiring gender quotas “was gender-balancing, not remedying discrimination”.

Leftist politicians, according to Duffy Lewis, had used the law, not for the protection of citizens, but for their own special brand of social engineering.

The Democrats — convinced they knew what was best for Californians, and convinced Californians were so hopelessly mired in misogyny that they would not choose what was best — decided to force Californians to perform the Party’s idea of best.


It’s a wonder those same legislators didn’t also demand equal treatment for high school dropouts. They could have insisted that every corporate board must comprise at least three people who have absolutely no clue. Except, of course, that all those people were already working for the Democrats.

I’m only half-joking. The decision to overrule gender mandates came just a month after another Los Angeles judge found that a California law mandating that corporations diversify their boards with members from certain racial, ethnic or LGBT groups was unconstitutional.

Say what you like about the Right’s supposed homophobia, transphobia or Islamophobia; the Left match all of that and more with their raging meritocracy-phobia.

The point here is not whether it is a good thing for more women to be on corporate boards. At issue is whether private companies should be forced, under threat of penalty, to appoint people based on genitalia rather than on merit.


When the Women on Boards law was stuck down, Lieutenant-Governor of California Eleni Kounalakis tweeted:

“The number of women directors on California boards went from just 766 in 2018 to 1,844 just 3 years later. It’s disappointing to see this setback for such an effective tool to help us achieve equal representation.

Well yes. It’s amazing what can be achieved with “such an effective tool” as the threat of punishment.

And it’s hardly fair on women.

One can say that 766 of 766 women serving on boards prior to 2018 were there because they deserved to be. The same cannot be said for the 1078 women appointed at threat of gunpoint.

Is she a woman?

Is she a token?

Is she a man pretending to be a woman, doubling as a token?

Who would know in the crazy social justice world that Leftists are always trying to force upon free people?

The best display of the Left’s topsy-turvy worldview was CA’s Secretary of State Shirley Weber who told Politico:

“I’m deeply disappointed in the court’s decision to allow the State to revert to policies that allow systemic gender discrimination to create an impenetrable wall”


What could be more “systemic” than legislated quotas? And what could be more discriminatory than demanding one particular gender is favoured, by law, on the threat of sanction?

These are rhetorical questions, of course. Leftists have no interest in addressing them. Contradictions, remember, are not a glitch, they are a feature.

Gavin Newsom: ‘I’m Hopeful’ Kamala Harris Will Be ‘the Next President of the United States’

Gavin Newsom: ‘I’m Hopeful’ Kamala Harris Will Be ‘the Next President of the United States’

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said Thursday that he is “hopeful” Vice President Kamala Harris will be “the next president of the United States.” 

Newsom’s comments came during an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board. The board asked Newsom, who is running for a second term this mid-term election cycle, “if he would promise to voters that he wouldn’t run for president before the end of that term,” which would expire in 2027.

“Yeah, I mean, I have sub-zero interest. It’s not even on my radar,” he said, adding that Harris, who has drawn criticism regarding her performance as vice president, should succeed President Joe Biden, the Chronicle noted. 

“I’m hopeful that she’s the next president of the United States,” he said. 

Newsom’s support of Harris comes at a time when Harris’s approval rating has plummeted below that of Biden’s, a recent Trafalgar poll showed. Just 28 percent of respondents approve of how “Harris is handling her job,” while 62 percent of those polled said they disapprove, Breitbart News reported. Of participants, 39 percent approve of Biden while 55 percent disapprove. 

The poll sampled 1,077 voters between April 18-20 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.99 percent. 

Breitbart News noted: 

Harris’s approval rating is underwater by 34 points. Biden’s deficit is 16 points. The net difference in their approval rating is 18 percentage points.

Harris’s terrible polling is bad news for any presidential aspirations she may have. Perhaps one of the reason’s [sic] why her polling is so terrible is that she has had numerous communications gaffes and has failed to prevent the southern border invasion.

Last year, Biden tasked Harris with stemming the flow of migrants. But one year later in March 2022, more than 221,300 illegal migrants were encountered crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. That number represents a new high for the Biden administration and the worst month since the Department of Homeland Security was founded in 2002, according to the Republican National Committee’s research team. March’s number was also the third-highest on record.

Harris and Newsom’s political careers follow somewhat similar arcs, dating back to their time working in leadership roles in San Francisco since 2004. Ballotpedia notes Newsom assumed the city’s mayorship that year while Harris was sworn in as district attorney. The duo worked together in the city government until 2011, when they took on high-ranking roles at the state level. Newsom served as California’s lieutenant governor from 2011 to 2019, while Harris served as the state’s attorney general from 2011 to 2016. The Chronicle pointed out that they share donors in the Golden State. 


Report: California Church Shooter Hog-Tied with Extension Cord When Police Arrived

Report: California Church Shooter Hog-Tied with Extension Cord When Police Arrived

NBC Los Angeles reports police arrived on scene at Laguna Woods’ Geneva Presbyterian Church to find that congregants hog-tied an alleged shooter with an extension cord.

Breitbart News pointed out that five people were wounded and one person killed when an alleged gunman opened fire in the church in the early afternoon.

The Orange County Sheriff noted that four of the five wounded individuals were critically wounded.

NBC Los Angeles said law enforcement indicated that “one or more of the church congregants … acted quickly and ‘heroically’ to subdue the shooter, who was already ‘hog-tied’ with an extension cord when authorities arrived.”

The Daily Mail quoted Orange County Sheriff Jeff Hallock saying, “That group of churchgoers displayed what we believe is exceptional heroism and bravery in intervening to stop the suspect. They undoubtedly prevented additional injuries and fatalities. I think it’s safe to say that had people not intervened, it could have been much worse.’

The alleged shooter is in police custody and the weapon(s) in his possession were recovered at the scene.

Multiple People Shot at Church in Gun-Controlled California

Multiple People Shot at Church in Gun-Controlled California

Multiple people were shot at a church in Laguna Woods, California, on Sunday around 2 p.m.

UPDATE: At 2:49 p.m. the Orange County Sheriff tweeted that five people were wounded in the church shooting and one person was killed.

Laguna Woods is located in Orange County. According to a tweet from the Orange County Sheriff:

“The exact number of people injured and the nature of those injuries was not immediately clear. The motive for the shooting is not yet known,” NBC Los Angeles reported.

Police have detained one individual, and a gun which may have been used in the attack was recovered at the scene, ABC 7 noted.

Following the April 3, 2022, Sacramento shootout the Sacramento Bee noted California has “107 different gun-control laws,” all of which have failed to stop committed attackers from opening fire on innocents in the state.

In fact, California is the most gun-controlled state in the Union.

California Bill to let 12-Year-Olds Get Vaccine Without Parental Consent Passes State Senate

By Katy Grimes
California Globe

SB 866 by Senators Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) to allow children ages 12 to 17 to take the COVID-19 vaccine without parental consent, just passed the California State Senate Thursday.

California legislators formed a “vaccine working group” earlier this year, claiming they wanted “to facilitate coordinated action and bring thoughtful, comprehensive approach to save lives.”

SB 866 was one of several bills introduced in the Legislature designed to increase vaccinations by Californians aged 18 or younger. However, as the number of COVID-19 cases in California drastically plummeted throughout the first several months of 2022, vaccine legislation efforts quickly lost steam. Support dried up as more scrutiny on the bills exposed mandates and the erosion of parental rights, in many cases.

But Sen. Wiener kept on with SB 866.

As Karen England with the  Capitol Resource Institute explained to the Globe in March,

“This legislative body is relentless in their pursuit to strip away parental rights as they also fast-track SB 866, a bill that will give minors as young as 12 years-old the ability to consent to any FDA approved vaccination WITHOUT parental consent. This bill not only strips parents of their right to make important decisions regarding their child’s health, but it also places minors in a potentially dangerous situation. If a minor were to have an immediate adverse reaction to a vaccine, the parent would not know. Parents MUST be allowed to be the decision makers when it comes to the health of their children.”

Senator Melissa Melendez gave a passionate floor speech Thursday during Senate debate, centered on the government encroachment into parental rights. And then she spelled it out on Twitter:

Melendez, a mother of five, spoke about parental concerns over vaccine side effects:

“More importantly, any vaccine can have side effects, sometimes life threatening. That’s why parents are required to furnish information on the child’s medical history, prior allergic reactions, and the child’s overall well- being.”

“Do we believe all 12 year olds will know what they’re allergic to and communicate that to the person administering the vaccine? Do we believe they will be aware of any past reactions to vaccinations received as a toddler?”

“We do need to be honest about all kinds of parents who are out here, and some really do need legislative circumvention … Young people know when they’re in trouble…they know when they are with a parent or guardian that is not loving them,” said Sen. Sydney Kamlager (D-Los Angeles) during Senate debate.

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Granite Bay) assured parents the Assembly will stop the bill:

The bill removing parental consent for 12-year-olds to get vaccinated just passed the Senate by a single vote. We will stop this obscene legislation in the Assembly.

The bill passed the Senate  21-7.

SB 871 by Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) Forced Vaccinations for School Enrollment: would have required all school-aged children up to age 17 to get the COVID-19 vaccine(s) to attend school and child care. But Sen. Pan withdrew the bill due to its unpopularity, and possible legal conflicts.

The Globe will follow up and report on SB 866 in the Assembly.

Devin Nunes Derides Twitter As A Potemkin Village Of Bots

Devin Nunes Derides Twitter As A Potemkin Village Of Bots

Former California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, now an executive behind Truth Social, said any time he spends worried about Twitter “is a waste of time for the company,” describing the blue bird platform as a “ghost town.”

“Places like Twitter don’t have very many people,” Nunes said on The Federalist Radio Hour podcast Thursday. “There’s just not very many real people if you have bot farms, left-wing bot farms, spam accounts, corporate accounts, and then you have a lot of dead accounts.”

Nunes, who left Congress in January to spearhead former President Donald Trump’s free speech-branded alternative, said Twitter likely always concealed its true number of customers in the U.S. while making comparatively little money for a major tech giant.

“My guess is that whatever your follower amount is, it’s must lower than that. Those people just aren’t on the platform,” Nunes said. On top of shadow banning, Twitter’s influence beyond its activist users is on the decline.

The ex-lawmaker welcomed billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, explaining Truth Social is meant to be a different platform while the competition places pressure on incumbent tech oligarchs to open up the internet.

“If more billionaires want to come around and buy up these other companies, we’re all for it,” Nunes said. “But I just don’t see, you know, any minute that — despite what the fake news says and the narratives that they’re trying to write — any minute that I spend worried about Twitter, that’s a ghost town with no people, is a waste of time for the company.”

Users on Truth Social, Nunes added, “even in our nascent stage,” already routinely garnered more engagement than on rival platforms dominated by Silicon Valley.

Musk struck a deal to purchase Twitter for $44 billion, paying a 38 percent premium above the company’s share price in April. The founder of SpaceX and CEO of Tesla revealed Friday morning the deal was “temporarily on hold” but remains “still committed to acquisition” despite the setback.

Musk linked to an article from Reuters in the Friday post highlighting that only less than 5 percent of users on the platform were fake or spam accounts. That number, however, doesn’t include inactive accounts.

On Truth Social, Trump called the purchase a “ridiculous price” for a platform “largely based on BOTS or Spam Accounts.”

“By the time you get rid of them, if that can even be done, what do you have?” Trump wrote on his own service. “If it weren’t for the ridiculous Billion Dollar breakup fee, Elon would have already been long gone. Just my opinion, but Truth Social is MUCH better than Twitter and is absolutely exploding, incredible engagement!”

Gavin Newsom: California Taxpayers to Subsidize Abortion Tourism

Gavin Newsom: California Taxpayers to Subsidize Abortion Tourism

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced plans Wednesday to spend an additional $57 million on abortions for uninsured, out-of-state residents who travel to the state to have abortions because of restrictions on abortion in their own states.

The announcement brings Newsom’s proposed spending on out-of-state abortion tourism to $125 million, over and above what he proposed in January. The new spending comes ahead of an anticipated decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the controversial 1973 ruling that established a “right” to abortion. A leaked majority opinion by Justice Samuel Alito in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization would return authority over abortion to the separate states.

Upon news of the probable decision, Gov. Newsom vowed to build a “firewall” around the state to protect abortion, proposing an amendment to the state constitution granting the right to an abortion to replace the federal one.

On Wednesday, he added that the state would spend on abortions for uninsured visitors, as well as on a “California Reproductive Justice & Freedom Fund” for pro-abortion community organizations, a “Reproductive Rights” website, and research on the “unmet needs for reproductive health care services.” Newsom also proposed a package of business incentives to encourage companies to relocate to California to take advantage of the state’s liberal abortion laws.

“By updating existing business incentive programs to provide additional consideration for companies leaving states that have enacted restrictions on reproductive rights and anti-LGBTQ+ laws, Governor Newsom is welcoming companies that share California’s values and doubling down on the diversity that makes our economy a global leader,” a statement from Newsom’s office said.

Sanctuary State California: Three-Time Deported Illegal Alien Charged with Kidnapping Three-Month-Old Baby

Sanctuary State California: Three-Time Deported Illegal Alien Charged with Kidnapping Three-Month-Old Baby

An illegal alien, deported three times from the United States, has been charged for her alleged involvement in kidnapping three-month-old Brandon Cuellar in the sanctuary state of California.

Yesenia Ramirez, a 43-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, has been arrested and charged along with 28-year-old Jose Roman Portillo for allegedly kidnapping Cuellar in broad daylight last month while his grandmother was unloading groceries.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirmed to local media that Ramirez was deported in 2018. She returned twice to the U.S. in 2019 and was deported each time before returning again at an unknown date.

In 2019, after having been convicted of illegal reentry, Ramirez spent just ten days in jail. ICE agents have asked the Santa Clara County Jail to turn Ramirez over to their custody if she is released at any time, but California’s expansive sanctuary state policy protects criminal illegal aliens from arrest and deportation.

Ramirez’s attorney said the suspect’s illegal alien status “has no nexus to and no bearing on her guilt or innocence” in the kidnapping case.

Late last month in San Jose, California, police alleged that Ramirez and Portillo conspired to kidnap Cuellar while his grandmother watched him. The kidnapping came, police allege after Ramirez befriended the grandmother at church and instantly became “obsessed” with the newborn.

Surveillance footage purports to show Portillo kidnapping Cuellar in broad daylight:

Cuellar was reported missing and found safe about 20 hours later. The newborn had been taken to a church that is linked to the homicide of a three-year-old toddler. In that case, the three-year-old granddaughter of the church’s pastor was killed after she was taken to the church in September 2021 by her mother and uncle because they believed she was possessed by a demon.

Police allege that the toddler was held down for seven hours by adults as they forced her to vomit, believing that they were ridding her of a demon. Her mother, Claudia Hernandez, waited two hours after the toddler had died before she called 911.

When police arrived on the scene, officers said the toddler was covered in injuries and had not been given anything for 20 hours except a small amount of water.

Hernandez has been arrested and charged with homicide in the case. Ramirez and Portillo have been charged with kidnapping, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, child abduction, and home invasion.
