CA Gov Newsom Claims Racism Behind Efforts to Unseat Him

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



Gavin Newsom

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.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’



Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”
