Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

I’m shocked, shocked I tell you.

If I didn’t witness the insanity and corruption in politics every day, I wouldn’t have believed this.

“The Perini-Zachary-Parsons bid was the lowest received from the five consortia participating in the bidding process, but “low” is a relative term,” the Laer Pearce, author of Crazifornia wrote. ”The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile.”

“As this fiasco progress, remember that this $35 million per mile represents the best California can do on the section of track the High on Crack Speed Rail Authority selected to go first because it will be the cheapest,” Pearce said.

Read Pearce’s story here. And stop staring dumfounded at the computer screen. Yes, this is true.

    She needs to recuse herself from EVERY issue involving MONEY. Maybe just be the Congressional mascot. She still has that dark Snow White beauty, if not the purity,

  2. An arrest needs to be made.

  3. wants are guns so she and her husband can steal more from the taxpayer

  4. Both Diane Feinstein and Jerry Brown have made a small fortune with Capitalizing on products from China….currently, tankers of milk from China are being received in the Oakland Bay, after a 3 week journey. Where is it going? We get their pollution, hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides. I remember turning Diane Feinstein if for taking $25.00 out of Social Security checks from Senior to finance her Campaign to Congress. She has more money than God.

  5. How about they are not allowed to indulge in any contracts for the state or the government at all ? Conflict of interest all the way to the bank . He got the USPS contract to sell off the post offices that have been shut down . Now this ? Fienstine should be jailed right along with her husband .

    Who elects these people?

  7. I live in California and have been voting since 1967 and I never ever voted for any Democrat. Except one time is all in a local election and that was it. And these old bats have been in office for as long as anyone ever was that I can remember. I am so disgusted with northern California that I hope they have bleed water dry and will die of thirst and lack of food. Why they have allowed these women and that Governor Brown to maintain their offices for this long, I have no idea. We tried term limits in our city and one woman was our mayor for two terms as we voted for in my city in SoCal and she decided to run as a write in candidate for her third term and she won and she leased off federal territory to the Chinese while serving as mayor. Yes Clinton closed the Naval Base in my city and then together they leased out part of our wonderful harbor area to the Chinese government–pretty sure mainland but remember Formosa or Taiwan….that is now China I guess. Nixon understood about the two China policy but very few in the rest of the world probably even heard of Formosa or Taiwan ….only Hong Kong-because the British lease of that island was up long ago and it is now “China” as well.

    • This is why we need desperately I, D. Voting. Without it it is called CORRUPTION! California is rampant with CORRUPTION. Everything these creepy politicians do is CORRUPT. They have to all. Dumped.

    Diane Dearest has to stay in office and DO EVERYTHING OBAMA DEMANDS TO GUARENTEE THE 178 MIL THE FEDS ARE PUTTING UP FOR THE CHO-CHO TRAIN FROM MADERA TO FRESNO

  9. I’m definitely not for this and know there gonna screw us with out the KY and its just a BIG waist of money… But BART costs 1 Billion per mile to construct now is some places….

  10. sorry i forgot this… I think it should be illegal for politicians immediate family to be able to bid for any kind of government contract because its tainting the waters she had her hand it making sure he got the bid and no one else… If judges can’t own stock in businesses that they may end up hearing charges against in there court room I don’t think these low down dirty dogs that we unfortunately put in office should be aloud to profit at our expense in any way it bad enough they get paid outrageous salaries and get health benefits at no cost to them for life that are 1000% better than anything we can get that should be enough to burn holes in there deep pockets…

  11. And there’s ” nothing wrong ” with this ?

  12. You Californians kept this garbage politician in office, now you can pay the price for your stupidity.
    P.S. Of course she made sure her husband get the contract. Shocking!

  13. Politicians at the state and federal level at this point, go about their daily business with total transparency and total impunity regardless of how obviously corrupt they are. They do not care because they know their constituents are powerless, because it’s a rigged game man! They don’t give a fuck about any body. Not you, not your family, no one! You are just a bunch of useful idiots both from the left or right. It doesn’t matter what party you’re from, as long as they can hold on to their position, who cares at what means they employ to stay in power even if it’s naked corruption and traitorous behavior. It’s all about one thing and it ain’t you man! It’s all about self enrichment!

  14. Mike Friedman says

    Richard Blum sold his stake in Tutor-Perini in 2007.

    So maybe ya’ll need to try again to smear Senator Feinstein and the HSR project. OK?

    Also, please learn

  15. Shane heath says

    And there goes another bullet iinto the heart of state workers who haven’t received a raise in 17 years and offer us a contract where we lose another 2500 dollars in three years in disgusted at these politicians. Rich get richer while the rest of us sink into poverty.

  16. why do you IDIOTS in Cali keep RE-ELECTING HER????

  17. hahaha there you go go left and corruption will only grow cause they are for the people to make themselves rich lol

  18. Probably the same shyster who built the one in Springfield

  19. Remember to sign the repeal the rail referendum so we can vote on it in Nov. 2016. They are trying to repeal it because of how Jerry Brown and his agenda to pass that thing. No real surprise corruption starts at the top and filter down.

  20. Yvonne Crosby says

    With so many other priorities in this state of ours, why Madera to Fresno for $35m per mile or for $1.00 per mile?. We do not need this rail system at all. Once again we, the people, get the ambitions of politicians & their cronies shoved down our throats.

  21. Mike Clark says

    This liar in the Senate just like Hillary Clinton , they both are total frauds , have been stealing taxpayers money for the last 30 years . However you will never get her removed from the Senate because she represents California , which is total communistic socialized state , which I can wait until the San Andreas Fault, takes the whole state off the map.

  22. I shall personally address the corruption over and under this KICK BACK CITY DEAL. For help call me. I AM HERE TO HELP. 713-870-2084 or email: lewimethod@aol.com

  23. HOW CAN CALIFORNIAN’S STOP THESE IDIOTS?

    • If this doesn’t look criminal I don’t know what does! WAKE UP CALIFORNIA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE AND STOP THIS INSANITY STOP THE LIFE-TIMERS ON THE HILL WORKING PART TIME WHILE WE PAY THEM FULL TIME WAGES WITH HUGE BENEFIT PACKAGES. THEY ONLY WORK PART TIME, TAKE AWAY THE RETIREMENTS, MEDICAL AND THE HIGH WAGES, THEY THINK MINIMUM WAGES ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEIR EMPLOYERS THAT’S YOU SO IT SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEM.
