‘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.

Portland Reaches Record Homicides Amid Law Enforcement Budget Cuts, ‘We Are Running on Fumes’

Published

Portland Police

The brother-in-law of Jacob Eli Knight Vasquez who was murdered by a stray bullet on Friday is begging Oregon’s leadership to “please untie the hands of our law enforcement officers.” Vasquez, 34, was at a pizza bar in the thriving dining scene of northwest Portland, then headed to a bar to get a drink across the street from the tavern where he worked when shots rang out and he was struck by a stray bullet and died at the scene.

Portland police have suffered from budget cuts and are struggling with a force of 128 officers below its authorized strength, despite the rapid increase of crime in the area. “Since August 2020, about 200 officers have left the department” reports the Associated Press. Exit interviews “cited low morale, lack of support from city officials and burnout from months of racial justice protests.”

Vasquez’s brother-in-law Don Osborn echoes the sentiments of many in liberal cities that have actively castrated their law enforcement departments. “I believe if the proper tools were in place for our law enforcement officers, this wouldn’t even have happened,” he said.

The AP writes Vasquez’s murder “in late September was one of the 67 homicides this year in Portland, which has surpassed its previous full-year record of 66 in 1987. And with more than two months remaining in the year, Portland will likely shatter its previous high mark.”

So far in 2021, Portland has experienced over 1,000 shootings. “At least 314 people have been injured by bullets, and firearms have accounted for three-quarters of homicides. Police also attribute much of the gunfire to gangs, fights and retaliation killings, but they are also affecting bystanders.”

“In a metropolis wracked by gang violence, fear and frustration have settled over Portland as stories like Vasquez’s make some wary to go out at night” reports the AP. “Unlike previous years” now innocent people unrelated to gangs are being murdered – “from people mourning at vigils and sitting in cars to children playing in a park.”

Daryl Turner, executive director of Portland’s police union says the city needs to hire 840 officers in the next five years. “We are running on fumes. There’s no way we can investigate thoroughly, and correctly, all these shootings.”

Turner said the increase in violence is related directly to the budget cuts. City leaders slashed $27 million from the police budget last year. $11 million due to the pandemic-caused budget crisis, “a decision that Turner says has cost lives.”

Stacey Abrams Again Claims 2018 Election Was Stolen From Her

Stacey Abrams

Stacey Abrams, who lost her campaign for Georgia governor in 2018 by more than 55,000 votes, suggested that she actually won the election – a false claim she has been making for the last three years.

Abrams made the claim while campaigning for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, who has notoriously claimed for decades that former President Bush actually lost the 2000 presidential election.

“Just because you win doesn’t mean you won,” Abrams said. “We’ve got folks who are ready to take back what they think is theirs, but they are not entitled to our progress. They are not entitled to our justice. They are not entitled to our vote.”

“I come from a state where I was not entitled to become the governor, but as an American citizen and a citizen of Georgia, I’m going to fight for every person who has the right to vote to be able to cast that vote,” she added.

Last week, McAuliffe was asked by CNN’s Dana Bash about claims he has repeatedly made that Democrats “actually won the” 2020 presidential election.
Bash played clips of McAuliffe saying, “Folks, you know it. I know it. They know it. We won that election!” And “We actually won the last presidential election, folks. They stole the last presidential election.”

Bash then asked, “Do you think Republicans stole that election?”

“I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes,” McAuliffe responded.

McAuliffe has also notoriously embraced the Russia-hoax, claiming that Hillary Clinton did not win the 2016 presidential election because of “treasonous” Americans and Russians were “destabilizing our democracy.”
