Earlier this week, I published an article in which a transgender men claimed he was the victim of parental alienation.

It's the kind of story which makes perfect sense for that radical state, but what about their court system?

In the last six months, I've produced over twenty stories just on the court system in Orange County.

While California politics receives lots of attention, the courts are left largely unexplored.

That does not mean there haven't been some signs of significant nefarious activity.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported in 2018 that the Commission on Judicial Performance, the judicial oversight board in California, took action in less than ten cases that year despite receiving over one thousand complaints.

Deann Salcido, a former judge, has been speaking out on widespread corruption in that state's system for over a decade.

More recently, a group of court victims got together to protest at the Capitol in Sacramento.

Finally, there is the story of former attorney Richard Fine who was arrested, held in solitary and disbarred after he exposed double dipping by judges.

The California judiciary is a swamp in need of disinfectant. Help me provide that disinfectant. I will do one story for every $250 raised.

A new proposed bill in California- AB 957- would encourage judges to find it is "in the best interest of the child" to call them by their gender preferred name. I got statements defending the bill from one of its co-sponsors. Appearance Alert: on The Pro America Report (substack.com)
