This Billionaire Likes to Tinker With Government

The Wall Street Journal recently profiled Nicolas Berggruen, a billionaire who has apparently become fascinated with political gridlock and enamored with the smoke-filled room. What makes Berggruen interesting is his ability to summon personalities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joseph Stiglitz, Tony Blair and Condoleezza Rice. (more)

‘Left, Right & Center’: Barack and Bibi, DSK and Arnold; Cornel West’s Broadside

What an action-packed week it was—how will “Left, Right & Center” regulars Robert Scheer, Matt Miller and Tony Blankley and guest panelist Chrystia Freeland possibly cover it all in 30 minutes? But they do—and they also manage to slip a little Newt-talk in there, too. Listen and learn.

Schwarzenegger Admits He Had a Child on the Side

Here we have a headline that smacks of the inevitable: Arnold Schwarzenegger has conceded that he fathered a child just over 10 years ago with a longtime member of his household staff. This “event,” as the former California governor called it in a statement ... (more)

Schwarzenegger to Resuscitate Tired Tagline, Movie Franchise

We’ve seen several cases by now of entertainers crossing over into the political realm, but few treat that career-swapping switch like a revolving door. First of all, it’s unwise, and second, it’s not easily done—unless, apparently, you’re Arnold Schwarzenegger.

First Look at ‘The Governator’

Talk about building a brand: He’s played an action hero and a president, and now Arnold Schwarzenegger is starring in his own combination comic book and cartoon franchise, clearly the logical next step for California’s former governor. Really, Stan Lee?

Well, really, what else did you think former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would do with his free time? Having left the Golden State’s governor’s post to non-action-hero Jerry Brown, Schwarzenegger promptly tweeted his hopeful return to Hollywood ...

Goodbye Governator, Hello Again Gov. Brown

Something seems familiar about this scene: On Monday, California’s former and now repeat Gov. Jerry Brown made his status official at a swearing-in ceremony in Sacramento, apparently comfortable enough in his position to get a bit goofy with the occasion.

Schwarzenegger Won’t Say Whom He Voted For

California’s current governor refused to tell reporters whether he voted for Democrat Jerry Brown or fellow Republican Meg Whitman in Tuesday’s election. Schwarzenegger has not endorsed either candidate for governor.

California’s Top Court Rules in Favor of Furloughs

That’s Gov. Schwarzenegger: 1, and some 200,000 California state workers: SOL. On Monday, the Golden State’s Supreme Court officially signaled its support for Schwarzenegger’s mandate that some state employees take three days off, unpaid, per month. A real crowd-pleaser!

Blame Clinton, Not Paul

What is so great about our bloated federal government that when a libertarian threatens to become a senator, otherwise rational and mostly liberal pundits start frothing at the mouth? What Rand Paul thinks about the Civil Rights Act, passed 46 years ago, hardly seems the most pressing issue of social justice before us.

Schwarzenegger Plans to Slash Spending

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is again attempting to eliminate the state’s welfare-to-work program as his Republican administration tries to cut spending while not raising taxes, a move intended to save $1.6 billion at the expense of 1.3 million poor people.

What’s to be done about California’s budget woes? Well, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is cutting way back on spending on such superfluous concerns as “health, welfare, transport and the environment,” according to the BBC. But really, this’ll hurt him more than it’ll hurt ... oh, never mind.

A Response From UFW to Marc Cooper

I’m “the heavy-handed UFW press relations chief who had to quietly resign,” the one to whom Marc Cooper refers in his latest attack on Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers (“Marc Cooper on the Fate of Cesar Chavez’s Dream,” Truthdig, Nov. 13). Like most of the rest of his article, this claim is false.

Schwarzenegger Sells Signed Cars for California

Here’s a, um, creative way to funnel some money into a broke state’s coffers: Hold a California-themed garage sale, starring actor-turned-Gubernator Arnold Schwarzenegger. The governor has added a personal touch to some bigger-ticket items, such as automobiles, by signing them in an effort to clear out the state’s storage sheds and bring in the cash. What’s next, a Golden State bake sale?

Stuff the Bankers, Starve the Kids

I expected a federal government that has spent trillions salvaging the banks that got us into this mess to find the relatively minor sums needed to bail out California and other states that have been the victims of Wall Street’s dangerous games. But I didn’t count on the tough-love steeliness of the Obama administration.

Schwarzenegger: Prop. 8 Outcome ‘Unfortunate’

During the Proposition 8 campaign and amid the fallout since California voters approved the banning of same-sex marriage, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proved that, although he once was teased for grunting and mugging his way through dialogue-challenged movies, he can now mince words with the best of the political crowd.

A Less Perfect Union: Gay Marriage and the Subversion of the Republic

As political leaders from the right rally their base seeking to outlaw gay marriage, and their counterparts on the left triangulate and equivocate, any real examination of the driving conflicts and stakes behind this crucial human rights concern is conspicuously missing from their debates about California’s Proposition 8.
