Assembly Bill 1400 would double California taxes and transform doctors into virtual state employees. Gavin Newsom’s new budget aims to signal his “global leadership” on global-climate issues but reveals instead his documented failures to achieve more modest goals at home. The remarkable, 21-year run of California’s standout auditor ends with a crucial fight over her replacement. Los Angeles Times columnist Michael Hiltzik says we ought to dance on the graves of vaccine refuseniks who die from Covid-19 — but he’s the same guy who savaged the vaccine when he thought it might improve Biden’s 2020 election chances. Bonus Track: Historian John Bicknell discusses the life of John C. Frémont, U.S. Army officer, Bear Flag Revolt leader, and first U.S. Senator from California. Music by Metalachi.
