‘Recall Newsom’ campaign reaches 1.5M threshold, ‘verification’ awaits to prompt special election

Following months of egregious and hypocritical lockdown measures by far-left California Governor Gavin Newsom, organizers of a recall campaign reached the threshold to qualify for a statewide ballot. 

According to Recall Gavin 2020 spokesman Randy Economy, the effort surpassed the legally required 1.5 million signature threshold needed to trigger a special election in the state. 

But, they’re not stopping there. 

“We’re not stopping at the 1.5 million signatures that we’ve collected thus far,” Economy said in a Fox News interview. “Our ultimate goal is to get…1.8 million to 2 million because we don’t want to leave any doubt in anybody’s mind in regards to the validity and the accuracy of what we’re doing here.” 

The goal is to get two million signatures by March 17, as expectations clear that a certain percentage of obtained signatures will be disqualified. Democrats in the state will likely go over each signature with a very critical eye, as reported by BizPacReview. 

“We’re not there yet. We wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate the milestone along the way. But our job is not done. We’re working as hard as today as we were yesterday, and we’re going to work harder tomorrow.” 

When asked about whether the campaign would make it to the finish line, Economy said he was “100% sure that we’re going to get to that point.” 

So, what happens if it does? 

If the recall goes forward, voters will be asked two questions: “Do they want to recall Newsom, yes or no? And, if more than 50% of voters say ‘yes,’ who should replace him? 

If enough voters answer yes to the first question, the candidate with the most votes becomes governor. 

The campaign to recall Newsom gained traction after the governor was caught violating his own stay-at-home order by partying maskless at a restaurant in northern California. 

In simple terms, do as he says, not as he does. 

“The French Laundry debacle…will go down in his political obituary as probably the dumbest thing any politician has ever done,” Economy said. “He just threw it in the face of every good Californian that he says, ‘Listen, I’m going to put you all under house arrest, but I’m going to go down at the most lavish, most expensive, most elegant restaurant in America. And I’m going to bring 22 lobbyists with me and we’re going to sit and talk about how we’re going to proceed in the future.” 

“We’re done. We’re done with them,” he added. “And we’re going to do everything we can to get him out of office as fast as we can.”

    This was a great program I watched the other night. Lt. Scott Bennet, James Grundvig, and General Mcinereny.
    It will inspire those who want to continue seeing justice done the legal way.

      Recall this cheating waste of a person. He does not deserve to be our governor. We need justice. He is only concerned for himself.

Biden On Defunding The Police: Do Republicans Think We’re Sucking Blood Out Of Kids?

Published

President Biden Meets With Union And Business Leaders To Discuss Infrastructure

President Biden demonstrated his relationship with reality on Thursday after attempting to rebut a reporter who questioned the administration’s claims on Republicans being the ones advocating for defunding the police.

“I’m the Democratic Party; I am president. So is the Speaker of the House and so is the, the Majority Leader,” Biden claimed. “We are not defunding the police.”

“Okay,” a reporter responded. “And are there people who — in the Democratic Party, who want to defund the police?”

“Are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?” Biden responded.

Biden’s response was in support of his administration’s claim that Republicans were the ones who wanted to defund the police, a claim that earned “Three Pinocchios” from the Washington Post.

The Washington Post reported, “Although Republicans all opposed Biden’s coronavirus relief package, no one voted to cut, or defund, anything. Rather, Democrats proposed $350 billion in emergency funds for state and local governments, and Republicans voted against those extra funds. That’s not a reduction.”

Contradicting the Biden administration’s claim, numerous Democrats have actually defunded their city’s police departments. In New York City, for example, Democrats removed $1 billion from the New York Police Department’s budget, which was criticized by other Democrats for not being enough. Further, in Los Angeles, Democrats cut the Los Angeles Police Department’s budget by $150 million, and the move was praised by Vice President Kamala Harris.

Supreme Court Lawyers Tell Commission Packing the Court Is a Bad Idea

Published

on

Joe Biden’s Supreme Court Commission was told packing the Court is a bad idea. And no, it wasn’t from a group of conservative legislators; the message came directly from Supreme Court lawyers.

Maureen Mahoney, a co-chair of the Supreme Court Practitioners’ Committee, told the Commission panel they are opposed to expanding the bench and adding more justices. The news is undoubtedly upsetting to liberals who have demanded Biden put more liberals justices in place.

During his presidential election, Biden refused to take a stand as to whether or not he was for or against packing the court but allowed the political environment, media and members of congress to fester on the issue. Instead, Biden created the Commission on the Supreme Court in April through executive order.

The Commission is composed of both liberal and conservative members who are expected to give a report in November about potential changes that the president and Congress could implement for the court. The next commission meeting is scheduled to take place November 10, and the conclusion of its findings are expected November 14.

“A larger bench could make arguments less productive, deliberations more difficult and yield even more opinions with less clarity in the law” sated Mahoney. However, the commission also heard from a group of progressive activists claiming adding more justices is long overdue. Funny, they did not say that during the Trump administration.

The Washington Times writes of the hearing:

During Tuesday’s hours-long meeting, a number of legal scholars testified about various changes to the high court and whether alterations would make the court more or less political.

Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, pushed back against accusations that the conservative majority has only delivered wins for Republicans.

“There’s now been — starting with the Warren Court — 60 years of the living Constitution being used to push the law in a progressive direction. While there are certainly on the conservative side, there have been politically influenced decisions, you haven’t had this freewheeling, making things up out of whole cloth that you have had with the living Constitution,” he said.
