California's Gas Tax is the Highest in the Nation--here is what citizens have to say.

It's every hard-working citizen's nightmare: an obnoxiously high gas tax coupled with an increase in pay to the politicians who created it. An OCGOP intern took to the streets to assess the public’s opinion on the recent gas tax increase, prompting citizens to reevaluate their district representative. The responders expressed frustration with the tax increase when they learned that 40% is going to the general fund rather than to much-needed road repairs and infrastructure. 


The Janus Victory: One Year Later | California Policy Center

California Policy Center, Reform California, and several other organizations pulled together to host a summit and celebration for the one year anniversary of the Janus Decision at the Supreme Court.

The featured lunch speakers were former Governor and Senator Pete Wilson and Mark Janus, the named plaintiff in ground breaking Supreme Court Victory Last year.

Lincoln Club has been proud to partner with California Policy Center since the very beginning of their formation and enthusiastically cheer on their progress in the battle against the political influence of public employee unions.


ICYMI: Victor Davis Hanson Visits the Lincoln Club

It was an honor to host award-winning historian Victor Davis Hanson for this month's Freedom Forum! Dr. Hanson recently wrote The Case for Trump to explain the true story of how Donald Trump has become one of the most successful presidents in history. Dr. Hanson's presentation at the Fashion Island Hotel focused on how President Trump was able to overcome insurmountable difficulties and why his presidency was necessary to unseat the old established order.


In spite of overwhelmingly negative media coverage, sixteen well-qualified Republican rivals, and Clinton's quarter-billion-dollar war chest, Donald Trump not only won, but can now take credit for a booming economy. Dr. Hanson believes that President Trump’s victory in 2016 can in large part be attributed to his ability to connect with middle America. In the last election, six million people voted for Donald Trump for President who hadn’t voted in the 2012 presidential election (or at least didn’t vote for Mitt Romney).

Dr. Hanson also discussed the 2020 presidential race, saying that "this is President Trump's election to win or lose." The candidates against whom President Trump is running are talking about reparations, infanticide, a 70% income tax on the rich, abolishing student debt and ICE, and letting convicted criminals vote. He predicted that President Trump has a 55%-60% chance of being reelected.

Afterwards, Dr. Hanson stuck around to answer questions, sign copies of his book, and chat with our members.

Here's an interview Victor Davis Hanson did for American Thought Leaders from Epoch Times on the same topic as his freedom forum speech.

Orange County Community Leaders Join Opposition to California's New Sex-Ed Law

Opposition to Assembly Bill 329 (AB-329), a K-12 sexual education law that was enacted in 2016, recently has been brought to the limelight by Orange County, California, activists who demand that it be repealed.

Meghan McNulty Exposes The Left's Biggest Female Target

Lincoln Club member Meghan McNulty recently published a piece at The Schpiel titled Ivanka Trump: The Left's Biggest Female Target.

"If Ivanka Trump were a Democrat, liberals would champion her as a leader for women. After all, here is a woman who led the fight for paid family leave, championed STEM education for women, headed a women’s empowerment initiative, and as a working mom of three, owned multiple businesses, including an affordable and stylish clothing line for professional women.

So why does the media hate on Ivanka and refuse to show her successes, painting her as a corrupt pawn of the President’s instead of a trusted advisor with documented success?"
