ed royce doesn't fit in with today's republican party. good riddance


to the editor: dan schnur makes it seem like the departure of rep. ed royce (r-fullerton) from congress is a bad thing. (“ed royce’s exit is going to make it even tougher to restore america's international reputation,” opinion, jan. 10)i do not agree. for far too long our foreign policy has been the equivalent of whacking a hornet’s nest with a baseball bat, and then wondering why we get stung.if president trump wants to change that, i don’t see the problem.gregg scott, los angeles..to the editor: if royce had shown the guts to stand up to trump and his horrendous policies, he could have maintained his office and remained the “globalist” in congress whom schnur admires.royce is completely responsible for his deteriorating reputation, opening california’s 39th congressional district to any

steve bannon is killing the republican party. good riddance.


rarely has a political party more deserved the destruction the republican party may be about to suffer at the hands of president donald trump's former strategist, ideological guru and onetime puppeteer steve bannon. it was obvious during the earliest days of the campaign that trump never intended to be either the leader or the protector of the republican party. he had contempt for the party. for one thing, it was a proven loser. for another, it crumpled like stick figures under his steamroller. who could respect people who fell so easily, and so willingly?party leaders were especially contemptible in trump's eyes. they couldn't even see what he was doing to them, or if they did, they were too cowardly to stop him. he had contempt for them when they tried to distance themselves from his rac

us vs. them: ‘propaganda machine’


we must fight the republican party propaganda machine and the way it uses words to cast aspersions on those with whom it disagrees.while most republicans claim to be “pro-life,” in reality they are merely “pro-birth.” if they cared about children and families, they would not try to legislate for the removal of health care, educational resources or the social net for those in greatest need.many who oppose the republican agenda belong to the democratic party, not the “democrat party.” not only is it grammatically incorrect, but the term “democrat party” attempts to change history and undermine the legitimacy of today’s socially-progressive democratic party. while the democratic party is the oldest political party in the u.s., it has not been historically the bastion of liberal thought. it’s






gop of today nothing like republicans of 1865 – the mercury news


as one reads ron chernow’s new book “grant,” he is struck by how different the republican party of 1865 was from what it is now. yes, it was the “party of lincoln,” as well as of grant, but it was more like today’s democratic party. the republicans of 1865 stood up for the former slaves during reconstruction, promoting their education and voting rights, fighting the southern states’ efforts to deny them their basic rights. the newly squeezed-out tax bill of today’s republicans shows that their driving sentiment is “to whom much has already been given, even more will be given, and by those who have less.” anyone who calls this the “party of lincoln” does not know his history. edward reedsunnyvalesubmit your letter to the editor via this formread more letters to the editor

california republican party convention delegates elect jim brulte to third term


the california republican party on sunday voted to keep chairman jim brulte in the job for a third term to steer the party toward what is expected to be a crucial election for the gop in 2018. brutle, a former state senate republican leader from rancho cucamonga, took over as chairman in 2013 and is credited for putting the state party on a firm financial footing and launching a rebuilding process. at the party convention last year, republican delegates voted to extend the term limits for the gop chair. the change was written in a way to make it apply only to brulte, so it will not affect future party chiefs. prior to that, party rules limited state republican chairs to two two-year terms. delegates also reelected the rest of the party’s current leadership team: stanislaus county superviso






jim brulte likely to secure third term as state gop chairman


jim brulte’s bid for a third term as chairman of the california republican party appears to be a lock. gop delegates gathered in sacramento for the party’s three-day convention on sunday will cast the deciding vote, but thus far brulte doesn’t face a challenge to extending his job as party leader for another two years. “i think brulte is the most phenomenal state chairman we’ve had in memory, including my own tenure,” said republican national committee member shawn steel, who served as state party chairman from 2001 to 2003. “he’s enthusiastic. he’s the best strategist in either party. he raising phenomenal amounts of money. he’s really the linchpin of our party.” brulte, a former state senate republican leader from rancho cucamonga, took over as chairman in 2013 at a time when the party w






the allegations against kevin spacey got 'house of cards' canceled — good riddan

roseville armory controversy: council aims for homes on site


a dispute in roseville over whether to try and save the city’s former national guard armory is nearing an end.against the wishes of those who wanted to preserve the armory for use as a community center, the city council last week signaled its preference to redevelop the site for low-density housing instead.city officials consulted neighbors, getting what they considered a solid response: 87 comments, online or on paper. among those comments, 69 people said they preferred single-family detached homes on the site, while the community center option drew 44 positive responses, community development chief kari collins told the council.but 29 people declared that no institutional use was suitable — a hint of polarization.many in the area wanted the armory preserved partly because “some of our ol
