Not so FAST, Mike Restuccia

Every citizen has the right to endorse anyone for public office, but public officers walk a fine line when endorsing a candidate for elected office. That is the case of Michael Restuccia, the current Chairman of the San Joaquin Regional Transit District. On Monday, October 31, 2016, Restuccia wrote a Letter to the Editor at the Manteca Bulletin, "Denham delivers for district," announcing his support for Congressman Jeff Denham's reelection. Denham is the incumbent, a Republican and supporter of Donald Trump. He is fighting for survival in his reelection to Congress; Michael Eggman, a farmer, beekeeper and small business ...

Landslide? Not so fast

So we have one candidate who definitely supports the Constitution and one who takes 24 hours to decide whether he does (tough one). We have one candidate who has stood up for women's rights in 115 nations and one who is credited with starting a national discussion about whether a nice way of saying hello to a woman is to grab her by the, well - it's a word that can mean "cat." (Look, he's the one running for president and saying these things, not me.) We've got one candidate who is supported by her base and ...

Just the facts, ma’am

We knew there could be a big October surprise before this bizarre and unpopular election finally came to an end. But who knew it would come from emails found on a device used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner, which was confiscated by the FBI after he sexted an underage woman - an act that cost him his job, his income and his marriage?

Blame? Try GOP in Congress

Yes, I share the pain; I am outraged! I am a military father after all and I would be extremely upset if my son were in the same unfair circumstances as Capt. Chris Van Meter, the Manteca hero recently mentioned in the Manteca Bulletin. So I want to extend my most sincere gratitude to him for his service to our country and to let him know he is not alone; we Mantecans and the entire country is behind him.

Silicon Valley’s nasty war on those who think differently

Two years ago, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was forced to resign because it had been reported that he had given $1,000 to the campaign to pass Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure approved by California voters that prohibited same-sex marriage. (Later the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality.) Now Silicon Valley activists are targeting Peter Thiel, because the controversial venture capitalist and a board member for Facebook donated $1.25 million to a super PAC that supports Donald Trump. Those of you who wonder why there is so much division in American politics need look ...

Is Trump committed to law?

Donald Trump's rhetoric has been so dangerously outside the bounds of normal American political discourse - which, at least, pays lip service to constitutional governance and democratic rule - that legitimate questions about whether he could be relied on to fully and faithfully execute the laws of the United States have been raised.
