Malcolm on the Right, Ep. 15: California Loses More Jobs and I Have Thoughts

For the first time in the 172 years of California statehood, the tarnished Golden State lost a House seat in the most recent Census.

A few hundred-thousand people are leaving every year for a variety of reasons, often centered on economics, cost of living, taxes, etc.

More importantly, employers are leaving too, taking with them thousands of well-paying jobs, often to Florida, Texas, Nevada, Tennessee — which not coincidentally do not have income taxes.

Recently, Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork producer, announced it is shuttering its immense processing plant near LA, along with some 1,800 jobs. Hundreds of other companies, including Tesla and Hewlett Packard, have fled the state.

Reason: The cost of doing business in California has become just too much.

As a recent refugee from the same state, I have some thoughts here on that.

Here’s the most recent commentary, thoughts on an historic Supreme Court decision we expect to come down this week.

Remember Joe Biden’s big oil embargo on Russian oil? It was supposed to punish Vladimir Putin for his unprovoked invasion of Ukraine? Turns out, the embargo jacked the global price of oil (you may have noticed at your local gas station).

So now, with Joe Biden’s embargo in place, Putin is making billions more in oil revenues than he was before. Please don’t throw me in that briar patch.

My most recent column on the unexpected turn of events in Afghanistan that has turned the one-time insurgent Taliban into insurgent fighters themselves over the same territory.

A look at the death rattle of America’s daily newspapers, which were once my entire life. And some more details finally seeping out from the tawdry Biden family.

See you back here Sunday for my next column and next week for the No. 16 Malcolm of the Right audio commentary on something even I don’t know about yet. We’ll both be surprised.
