CA Gov Newsom Claims Racism Behind Efforts to Unseat Him

Newsom blames racism, not his horrendous handling of the coronavirus pandemic

When Democrats don’t want to face consequences for their behavior, their favorite “go-to” tactic is cry racism. California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom blames racism, not his horrendous handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as the cause behind the effort to recall him. On Wednesday, the effort to recall Governor Newsom reportedly received over two million signatures in favor.

Though Newsom has said he plans to fight recall efforts, he says the motivation behind the movement stems from racism. Speak to “The View” on Tuesday, Newsom said “it has to do with immigration. The browning of California.”

Newsom started his own campaign in response, called “Stop the Republican Recall.” In his campaign, his rhetoric gets even more desperate, arguing those backing the effort against him are anti-vaxers against the coronavirus vaccine, Q-Anon theorists, and the ultimate favorite, Trump supporters.

But it is Newsom that consistently mentions race. In an interview with MSNBC, Newsom said he had “multiples names in mind” of Black women to replace California Senator Dianne Feinstein if she resigns, in order to fill the vacancy of now vice-president Kamala Harris.

Suddenly the governor is concerned about the representation of Black women in leadership roles? Don’t be fooled. When Newsom actually had the chance to fill the seat vacated by Kamala Harris, he chose former California Secretary of State Alex Padilla. Although Padilla Latino, Newsom had been under intense pressure to fill her seat with a Black woman.

Democratic Senator Feinstein is the oldest sitting U.S. senator and says she has no plans to resign with four years left in her term. Feinstein has served as the United States Senator from California since 1992 and is 87 years old. Newsom said his mention of placing a Black woman in Feinstein’s seat was just “hypothetical” and hopes Feinstein completes her term.

    Newsom is just another white privileged liberal! He does not represent my political beliefs nor my family’s. Hes represents everything that’s wrong with California.

      That’s really not the case at all. Newsome has repeatedly RAPED Californians with extreme taxes and policies. FFS, Elin Musk moved his company out of Valid because of burdensome regulations and taxes. Millions have fled the oppressive regime to places that value and honor civil rights and freedoms.

    Democrats push the Critical Race Theory that says the world’s racism is because of white people and more specifically white men. Democrat Newsome blames his recall on racism. This looks like circular reasoning and not logical.

    That’s rich. A white male millionaire who is a member of one of the leading families in California is crying racism. As an African-American male, I am offended. Two million people think Newsome is doing a poor job. His ethnicity is irrelevant.

POLL: Huge One Year Swing of Independent Voters Saying Government ‘Doing too Much’

Published

on

White House

What a difference a year can make. Particularly a year filled with government infringements and overreaching. In a Gallup poll released Thursday, findings show Americans have drastically shifted perspective on how much they want the government involved in their lives.

Gallup News tweeted the results along with the headline “Americans again favor a reduced government role in solving problems facing the country after supporting a more active government role last year.”

52% percent of those polled say the government is doing too much on issues that should be dealt with by businesses and individuals. Only 43% say the government needs to do more to address citizens’ problems.

The numbers have almost flopped from only one year ago when 54% said the government should be doing more, and 41% disagreed. The annual Gallup Governance survey was conducted September 1-17.

The Gallup Poll release stated “the shift toward favoring a more active government role in 2020 was seen among Democrats and independents but not Republicans — likely a response to the coronavirus pandemic and in particular to then-President Donald Trump’s approach to handling it.”

“Trump generally opposed government efforts designed to slow the spread of the virus, such as face mask requirements and business and school closures.” The poll found independent voters shifted their opinions greatly.

“The percentage of independents who said the government’s doing too many things jumped from 38% in 2020 to 57% this year. Republicans edged up from 74% to 80% and Democrats crept up from 13% to 18%.”

Gallup also highlighted the fact that 2020 was only the second time in the poll’s 29 years of asking about the role of government that at least half of Americans supported an active role for government. The first time occurred in 2001 in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Former Obama Ethics Chief Slams Psaki Over Dismissing Questions On Hunter Biden

Published

Walter Shaub

Walter Shaub, the former head of the federal government’s ethics office under President Barack Obama, slammed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday in response to her dismissal of questions about whether the identity of buyers for Hunter Biden’s art would stay anonymous.

“At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City — which has now been delayed until the spring,” The New York Post reported last week. “It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.”

During Tuesday’s press briefing, Psaki told a reporter asking about the anonymity of the buyers of Hunter Biden’s art, “I know this is your favorite topic, but it, again — it still is the purview of the gallerist. We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings. And the President remains proud of his son.”

 

“These are legitimate questions,” Shaub said in response to Psaki’s comments. “It’s disappointing to hear [Psaki] send a message that the WH thinks the public has no right to ask about ethics. After the last 4 years, these questions have never been more important. I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but this stuff matters.”

“There is no ethics program in the world that can be built around the head of state’s staff working with a dealer to keep the public in the dark about the identities of individuals who pay vast sums to the leader’s family member for subjectively priced items of no intrinsic value,” Shaub tweeted Wednesday. “If this were Trump, Xi [Jinping] or [Vladimir] Putin, you’d have no doubt whatsoever that this creates a vehicle for funneling cash to the first family in exchange for access or favors. Nor would you doubt that the appearance of monetizing the presidency was outrageous.”
