As a former seminarian, I have a very clear image of the sanctuary. It's in a church. It conjures up medieval sanctuary places.

Aug 07 2017 - AT&T

[I]t takes values, believing in right and wrong and a sense of what America's all about. And it takes a certain vision, how the hell do we get out of this? And it takes some political skill at the same time. All three of those things.feedback

Aug 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

America is fiddling around now. It's goofing off in many respects and the people in Washington are taking almost a perverse pleasure in roasting Trump through these inquiries.

Aug 02 2017 - Climate change

The fact that Trump is the null hypothesis, he's saying there is no climate change, it's a hoax. So that sets up an antinomy, a contradiction. And because of that what California is doing is more salient. People are paying attention. People are more concerned because now they see, oh what Trump is saying – that's not right.feedback

Aug 02 2017

We're going to radically transform the very basis of who and what we are. That's big.

Tonight, California stood tall and once again, boldly confronted the existential threat of our time. Republicans and Democrats set aside their differences, came together and took courageous action.

This is for you, and it's real.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Trump Presidency

It isn't being cooked up because of Trump. No nation or state is doing what they should be doing. This is damn serious, and most people are taking it far too lightly than the reality of the threat.

These cult murders have left an indelible mark on the public – the Manson Family is still feared to this day.

Jun 06 2017 - Climate change

It's highly significant that the governor of California can meet with the president of China, talking about very specific issues on the foremost challenge of our time – namely, climate change. He expressed very positive feelings about the role of California, about America and Chinese cooperation, and about the role of China in dealing with the larger problems of humanity. California's leading, China's leading. It's true I didn't come to Washington, I came to Beijing. Well, someday I'm going to go to Washington, but not this week. I think there is a good feeling between us.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

Since World War II, America has been in every fight, but right now America, through the White House, is AWOL. But California is on the playing field; we are active and we are going to lead the way forward.feedback

President Trump is giving climate denial such a bad name that the opposite, namely climate activism, is receiving a real shot in the arm. We are going to be all the more activated as the president seems to go off into the wilderness of obscurity and junk science.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Carbon

I think that is a heavy lift to include Chinese provinces but we are definitely taking that possibility very seriously. We want to make sure it has full integrity and know exactly what's going on. And we can't say that today. Maybe we don't put it right in the same cap and trade regime, maybe some parallel regime. I am going to discuss that with the highest officials in China this week.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump made the right call in leaving a deal that would have put an unnecessary burden on the United States.feedback

I want to do everything we can to keep America on track, keep the world on track, and lead in all the ways California has.

Erasing climate change may take place in Donald Trump's mind, but nowhere else.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I was very impressed.feedback

Mar 13 2017

As I said last year, tax breaks are the same as new spending – they both cost the General Fund money.

The earthquake shook the Bay Bridge and then, we the state, and all the different governors had to put up a new bridge. So stuff happens and we respond. This is part of the ordinary process. We'll get a lot of eyes on the problem now that we have a problem. The problem is big and we're responding.feedback
