“I’m not making that up — zero. I mean, he’s not even debating the merits or demerits of $15,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom told supporters last Thursday. “He,” was a reference to leading opponent Larry Elder, who sees no merit for third parties in wage negotiations. Newsom accused Elder of being a Trump supporter, and issued a warning about what would happen if Californians succeed in recalling the San Francisco Democrat from office in September.
“They would turn back all the progress this state has made,” Newsom contended. “We’ve had better health outcomes than Florida and Texas and better economic outcomes than Florida and Texas. They will take us off a COVID cliff. That’s what’s on the ballot Sept. 14.” In reality, it’s all about Newsom, but there’s more to the story.
Newsom’s grandfather was a crony of the first Gov. Brown and Newsom’s father was a crony of his son Jerry Brown, who appointed Newsom’s father to a judgeship. That makes Newsom a hereditary candidate, just like three-time presidential loser Jerry Brown. Newsom is like the son Brown never had, so in effect Jerry Brown is also on the ballot.
Brown’s father awarded the concession for the 1960 Squaw Valley Winter Olympics to William Newsom and John Pelosi, father-in-law of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Her aunt Barbara was once married to Ron Pelosi, Nancy’s brother-in-law, so Gavin Newsom and Nancy Pelosi were once related. When Newsom announced the state of emergency in March 2020 he claimed Californians were “blessed” to have the leadership of Nancy Pelosi. So in effect, Nancy Pelosi is also on the ballot, and Newsom’s own record predates the pandemic.
During the 2018 campaign Newsom ignored the far reaches of the state and his first trip as governor was to El Salvador. One of Newsom’s first actions as governor was to reprieve all 737 convicted murderers on California’s death row. Those awaiting execution include Richard Allen Davis, who kidnapped and killed twelve-year-old Polly Klaas; “Tool Box Killer” Lawrence Bittaker, who raped and killed five teen girls in 1979 after torturing them with pliers and screwdrivers; and Luis Bracamontes, a previously deported Mexican national who gunned down police officers Danny Oliver and Michael Davis.
When criminal illegals murdered police officers such as Ronil Singh, Newsom failed to show up at the funeral. If Californians thought Newsom was more pro-criminal than pro-victim it would be hard to blame them. The Brown-Pelosi crony also has a soft spot for China.
After locking down the state, Newson struck a $1 billion deal for masks with Build Your Dreams (BYD), a Chinese company that had no experience in the manufacture of masks. Newsom kept details secret, even from fellow Democrats. If China’s Communist regime ever did anything with which Newsom disagreed, it’s hard to know what it might be. So in effect, China is also on the September 14 ballot, and Newsom has already run the state over the “Covid cliff.”
Newsom’s draconian restrictions on gatherings targeted churches, synagogues and families. On the other hand, Newsom and Democrat cronies partied sans masks at the upscale French Laundry in Napa. Californians didn’t appreciate the hypocrisy, and what they didn’t know could have hurt them. According to the Los Angeles Times, the California National Guard put an F-15C fighter on standby to “buzz” any crowds daring to resist stay-at-home orders at the outset of the pandemic. What could possibly go wrong? Still, the carefully coiffed Democrat has his defenders.
“Right-wing Republicans in CA are trying to recall Gavin Newsom for the crime of telling people to wear masks and for listening to scientists during COVID,” tweeted Sen. Bernie Sanders. Delaware Democrat Joe Biden also opposes the recall, and claims the effort is “inappropriate.” The Democrats’ latest anti-recall barker is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who for decades falsely claimed to be a Cherokee.
Californians might wonder why Newsom would pick this shrill fraud to make his case. As voters might note, the first person Newsom calls out is Larry Elder, a Black man on the rise while the white Newsom is in decline.
According to an August 2-4 poly by Survey USA, Newsom is “deep underwater,” with more than half of Californians surveyed opting to boot Newsom and only 40 percent opposed. One in three Democrats also support the removal of Newsom, who says its “all about turnout,” a dog whistle to the state’s imported electorate.
When illegals get driver’s licenses, the California DMV automatically registers them to vote. Mail ballots are sent to every registered voter, which includes at least one million illegals, not a single one eligible to vote. Democrats give illegals free health care, in-state tuition, welfare and so forth, plus protection from deportation through sanctuary laws. In return, the illegals are expected to vote Democrat, in this case to retain Newsom as governor.
With midterms just around the corner, September 14 may signal how Democrats will deploy the extensive voter fraud organization Joe Biden touted last year. As the California Globe reports, secretary of state Shirley Weber, who tried to keep Larry Elder off the ballot, deploys the “Remote Accessible Vote by Mail” system that allows people to print their own ballot at home and and home and mail it in.
“Can you print out more than one ballot?” wonders the Globe’s Katy Grimes. “Did California invent an audit-proof way to steal elections?” As Trump likes to say, we’ll have to see what happens.
