San Diego stays out of the more restrictive Purple Tier by just a hair! But let’s be honest… the scorecard that determines which tier we are put in is ridiculous. There’s no mathematical way for us to ever get back to normal. These shutdowns need to end. Restaurant owners are out of options and tired of feeling the strain of lockdowns. The guys talk with Jon Webber, owner of the Cowboy Star Restaurant and Butcher Shop about what he...

Democrats have controlled California for a long time, and they’ve done enough damage to our incredible State. Can Republicans stop the long-held State Legislature supermajority held by Democrats? It’s definitely a possibility, but we need to get out and vote for some of the good Republicans we have running for office! Carl and Lou talk with candidates Diane Dixon and June Cutter about the upcoming election and they make their case ...

Ted Cruz did a phenomenal job when it comes to the hypocrisy of the left-wing agenda, Democrat narrative pushing, social media giants. So how did this all start? What were they trying to suppress? It was the Hunter Biden scandal. And now Joe Bobulinski, Biden’s business partner, has come out in full force against the Biden family because they are smearing his name! This is a huge story that the Democrats do NOT want you to hear, bu...

After a Trump win in the final debate, Carl and Lou both predicted that we would see some of these polls showing Biden leading would start to tighten up. We are just 7 days away from the election and now things are starting to look a little better for President Trump! And after the Hunter Biden laptop scandal broke, some Democrats are searching how they can change their vote! Also, the Race for the 50th is one of the hottest in the...

The San Diego Mayor’s is very close! But this is a tough one for Republicans because we have to choose between two Democrats. But, since we have to choose… it might as well be for one that’s better than the other! And the fact of the matter is, Todd Gloria is not right for San Diego. He backs bad legislation, he has backed bad politicians, and he’s flat out lied to San Diegans. He’s not suited for the job on policy issues, nor is h...

Not a single Democrat voted to confirm Amy Coney Barrett as a Supreme Court Justice. One of them actually voted “hell no” during the roll call vote and Chuck Schumer called the confirmation of the darkest day in Senate history. The bottom line is that the Left are upset, angry, and want revenge on President Trump and the Republicans, so they want to upend our constitutional system. Is Packing the Court even possible? What would the...

It’s official. Amy Coney Barrett is now Justice Barrett. But not one Democrat voted to confirm her. But the fight’s not over! If Biden wins and the Democrats take control of the Senate, look for the Left to pack the Court. This would rip apart the country in ways we can’t even imagine and it’s all because they are still unhappy they lost in 2016. And bumbling Biden keeps doing things that remind us that if elected, Democrats will b...

If you want to see road repair continue or our local freeways expanded… local races are extremely important! The only reason we have been able to stop SANDAG from wasting our taxpayer dollars, is because Republicans control a lot of these City Council seats! We need to keep those seats as well as get some more! The guys talk with El Cajon City Councilmember Phil Ortiz, candidate for Mayor of Oceanside, Chris Rodriquez, and Mayor of...

The Democrats did their best to make a case for President Trump to not nominate a placement for the late RBG’s seat. But, Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice will be done tonight and the Left will continue to melt down because of it. And the Republicans are having a problem with this year's election. Voter turnout! Democrats are turning in their ballots at record numbers and Republicans are way behind! L...

The final Presidential date of 2020 is in the books! And it was a good one for Trump! Some say his best debate performance ever. It’s a good thing too, because it looks like he needs to rally up some more supporters. And remember how stress free it was supposed to be to mail in your ballot? Well, there are problems at the San Diego Voter Registrar’s office. They can no longer track your ballot…at least not at the moment. But what t...

We are in the middle of a pandemic and our schools have been closed since March! It’s extremely important to get our kids back in the classroom, but we have to do it safely. The union leftist board that currently resides within SDUSD, doesn’t care about our kids, parents, or what’s best for them. That’s why who we vote in for School Board is extremely important! Carl and Lou talk with candidates Michael Allman and Leslie Schneider ...

President Trump and Joe Biden went head to head in what will most likely be the final debate each of them will ever participate in. The moderator, Kristen Welker, did a pretty good job of keeping them in line! But Carl and Lou think it’s pretty clear who won. President Trump was on fire and probably gave his best debate performance ever. But the guys open up the phone lines and ask, “who won the debate and do you think it will make...

We have a record number of Americans who have already cast their ballots! Typically Republicans are the ones who vote early, but at the moment, Democrats are coming out strong and leading the charge. Tonight is the final Presidential debate and some people are asking, since there are so many people who have voted already, do we even need a 2nd debate? Yes! We definitely do! Trump has shifted gears and decided to focus on the Hunter...

Poll released today shows some good news! Both Prop 15 and Prop 16 could fail! But it’s still close… especially for 15. We need everyone to make sure they get out and vote NO on both of these bad bills! And the Senate Judiciary Republicans advance the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett despite the Democrats boycotting the committee. Chuck Schumer is trying to cry foul, but Lindsey Graham isn’t having it. This is one of the best judici...

The coronavirus metrics in California are not grounded in science. There is no mathematical way for us to achieve the numbers that Governor Newsom is forcing Californians to hit. Under the rules that have been put in place, our economy will never open. So, what are Democrats proposing we do now? Cancel Halloween and cancel Thanksgiving. Oh! And if you thought you would just have everyone over for Thanksgiving anyways, think again. ...

There are 53 Congressional seats in the State of California. Only 7 of those seats are held by Republicans. What’s even scarier is that, due to redistricting, we are in jeopardy of losing more of those seats! This is why your vote is so extremely important this election! Carl and Lou talk with Jaun Hidalgo Jr, running for the 51st, Brian Maryott, running for the 49th, and Jim DeBello, running for the 52nd. These are three great guy...

The sad story of a woman walking into a Santee Starbucks and yelling racial slurs and profanity and a barista continues. We now know who the woman is that walked in and did this, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. One of them is why is the barista trying so hard to collect money from this? She has a GoFundMe account that has nearly $20,000 dollars donated to it so far, and there’s no telling how much has been collec...

San Diego dodges a bullet and remains in the less restrictive, red tier for the time being, but that could change in another week. Meanwhile, unemployment rates are through the roof in California. But Red states that have reopened that have manageable unemployment rates, but the Blue states that continue these draconian lockdowns are seeing numbers that are out of control. It does not have to be this way. We are being lied to about...
