CA Gov Newsom Calls Himself ‘Zoom Parent’ Despite 4 Children in Private School Since November

California Governor Gavin Newsom

If California Governor Gavin Newsom hasn’t lost all credibility, this should push him over the edge. While parents and children struggle with devastating consequences from being forced to do at homeschooling, Governor Newsom actually had the audacity to try to relate.

During a CNN interview on March 16, Newsom attempted a go at relatability points stating, “I’ve been a strong advocate for safely getting our kids back in person for instruction. I have four young kids myself; I’ve been living through Zoom school and all the challenges related to it. We put out a detailed proposal to our legislature…it’s brutal.”

Not exactly sure what has been so “brutal” for the Governor. It’s not the inability to dine in restaurants or attend group gatherings that his leadership has mandated, as he has done both of those. Oh, and it’s not “living through Zoom school” because “his children returned to in-person classes in November at the elite Sacramento private school they attend” reports The Independent.

Perhaps it is being forced to lean on his acting abilities that is, in fact, “brutal.” Marcelino Valdez, a parent and founder of an organization to get schools reopened in Fresno, California, told The Washington Free Beacon, “it’s hard for him to relate to parents like myself and the 500-plus members of our group who have kids in public school.”

“He’s had his kids in private school. It’s a real lack of understanding and a lack of leadership on his part” added Valdez. Newsom’s attempted validation for setting back parents and students for over a full year was that “we prioritized our teachers in terms of vaccines, one of the first states to do that” Newsom told CNN. Ten percent of all our first doses going to our educators, over 400,000 now have gotten at least one shot.”

    Just wondering who the next governor will be. Will it be a conservative or will the people of California vote in another left wing maniac.

    Well said, William!! I don’t know how these liars sleep at night let alone look at themselves in the mirror. They’re on the gravy train and can’t get off to save face. When someone acts and says they’re always the victim, it’s a sign of mental instability. It must refer to the entire Left! They wouldn’t know reality if it hit them in the face.

    This guy has a staff that I am sure takes care of his kids. I bet he has never been on a school zoom class with his kids ever. He is blaming his recall on everyone but himself and his bad policies that have plagued Calif. before the pandemic hit. The signatures on his recall are NOT ALL REPUBLICANS. There are plenty of dems, independants, etc. Its just a general dislike of him, its not a party thing.

Oregon Schools ‘Staffing Crisis’ So Bad State Temporarily Allowing Substitute Teachers Without Degrees

Published

Liberal policies and mandates surrounding the coronavirus pandemic for over a year and a half have resulted in a mass labor shortage across a plethora of industries. Most recently with the vaccine mandates, individuals are either quitting or being forced into a leave of absence. Education is among the affected fields, leaving children without teachers.

In Oregon, officials said the “extraordinary shortage” of substitute teachers is also so bad, they have been forced to relinquish standards. The Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission announced it will temporarily be dropping the requirement for teachers to, well, be licensed to teach.

CNN reports:

“The temporary rule, which is set to expire March 31, allows substitute teacher applicants without a bachelor’s degree to be sponsored by a school district, which would also provide them with enhanced support administrative supervision, according to a joint statement from Dr. Anthony Rosilez, the commission’s executive director, and Erika Bare, the commission chair.”

In December of 2019, the state had 8,290 licensed substitute teachers. By September 18, 2021, the number was down to almost half at 4,738. The temporary administrative order says without more teachers, classes will be “combined to unacceptable levels or not offered at all, inflicting irreparable harm on schoolchildren.”

In the joint statement from Rosilez and Bare, they explained the reason behind the state’s conundrum: “while the data we have at this point is primarily anecdotal, the COVID pandemic has been a primary factor in the reduced supply.”

Elizabeth Thiel, president of the Portland Association of Teachers says Oregon is experiencing a “staffing crisis” exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s not just substitutes that we don’t have enough of. It’s classroom teachers, it’s administrators and custodians and bus drivers and education assistants and nutrition workers and paraprofessionals” added Thiel. “Every job type we have in our schools, we’re short.”

Rep. Tlaib Caught on Video Admitting She is Only Wearing a Mask Because of ‘Republican Tracker’ Filming Her

Rashida Tlaib

Democrat and member of the “Squad” Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was filmed at an event explaining that she was only wearing a mask for one reason. It was not for safety, not for fear of spreading COVID-19 to the vulnerable and weak, not for fear of getting a variant herself, and not for “stopping the spread.” No. It was only because a “Republican tracker” was in her presence.

At an event in Detroit, Tlaib can be seen among a group outside, and one gentleman, who was not wearing a mask, thought Tlaib was upset that he was not masked. “Oh, my bad. Sorry” the man said.

Quickly explaining herself and making sure there was zero confusion as to her position, she quickly comforted the man saying, “oh no, not you.” She then pulls down her mask to further explain, “I was only doing it because I got a Republican, uh, tracker following me” as she appeared to be pointing in the direction of the “tracker.”

She then popped her mask back on and turned to walk away. National Review reports: “Tlaib was exiting an event on Monday with Housing and Urban Development secretary Marcia Fudge, who visited housing developments in Detroit while touting the Biden administration’s proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.” The video was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

This summer Tlaib chastised Republican Senator Rand Paul for voicing resistance to some Centers for Disease Control and Prevention measures including mask-wearing mandates. The same day, video surfaced of Tlaib partying at an indoor wedding maskless.

Tlaib is one of many Democrats who have acted in complete hypocrisy to their own mandates. San Francisco mayor London Breed was filmed at a crowded indoor bar listening to music where no one was wearing masks. She justified her violation by stating she wanted to dance and “I was feeling the spirit.”
