Into the belly of the beast
“The leading candidate thinks climate change is a hoax, believes we need more offshore oil drilling, more fracking, does not believe a woman has the right to choose [and] actually came out against Roe v. Wade, does not believe in a minimum wage,” Newsom said Thursday night.

Gavin Newsom is facing a Sept. 14 special election that could make him just the third state governor in U.S. history to be removed from office through a recall. His leading opponent is Laurence Allen Elder, an American conservative talk radio host, author, politician and attorney who hosts The Larry Elder Show. What was once a close race has more recently become a demonstration of the behind-the-scenes power base that democrats have created in California.

First of all there is the nature of the campaign itself. Larry Elder has talked about policy changes, most notably the freedom of parents, especially minority parents, to send their children to the school of their choice. The record of Gavin Newsom as governor would normally be the main issue, since it is after all a recall election. However the Newsom campaign has focused on personal attacks against Elder. Most notable was the California professor campaigning for Newsom, who hurled a truly racist attack at Elder last Monday, calling him “a Black face on White supremacy.”

A spokeswoman for the Elder campaign accused Newsom of “lashing out” at the Republican candidate because he realizes that his political career is on the line.

“Gavin Newsom is running scared. He cannot defend his horrendous record on crime, homelessness, the rising cost of living, water shortages, uncontrollable wildfires, and tyrannical COVID lockdowns,” spokeswoman Ying Ma said in an email. “Larry believes in liberty, personal responsibility, private enterprise, and the ingenuity of the people of California, not Newsom’s repressive edicts or the cronyism of his allies.”


The CA deep state empire is striking back. The Teacher's Union and the Public Sector Union and Hollywood are sending in the money fueling the Newsom campaign:

"Newsom’s anti-recall campaign raked in more money in its first five months — $54 million — than the $50.2 million his 2018 gubernatorial campaign raised over four years.

Most of the money  came in six- or seven-figure donations from longtime Democratic financial backers, including government employee and trade unions, as well as people and interest groups that stand to gain from a relationship with California’s governor. Even allies of the governor have expressed concern about the amount of money flooding in. The California Teachers Assn., which has clashed with charter school advocates for years, gave $1.8 million. The Service Employees International Union and its local affiliates, which together represent about 700,000 members, including government employees, donated a combined $5.5 million to Newsom’s anti-recall campaign. Others in the $1-million-and-up club include associations representing California Realtors, home builders and Democratic governors.

Newsom’s anti-recall committee has  raised tens of millions of dollars more than the committee pushing for him to be removed,  as well as the top Republicans hoping to replace him. Several of those candidates have alleged that the wellspring of donations in support of the governor is evidence that he is beholden to unions and Sacramento’s special interests.

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) accused Newsom of closing public schools last academic year under pressure from the California Teachers Assn. and other teachers unions despite guidance from federal health officials that it wasn’t necessary.

“Teachers unions just funneled Gavin Newsom another $2.1 million,”  Kiley tweeted in late July.  “It’s unclear if this is a bonus payment for last year’s shutdown or prepayment for the one to come.”

https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-08-24/newsom-donors-anti-california-recall

Democratic politicians & officials, including the vice president, have gone to California in recent weeks to campaign for Newsom. The president is also expected to join the bandwagon before the recall vote in about 5 days. Even Barack Obama has urged Californians to reject the recall. Yesterday he told California voters: "Your vote could be the difference between protecting our kids and putting them at risk, helping Californians recover or taking us backwards."


Then there is this:

"H
undreds of ballots for California Gov. Gavin Newsom's recall election, drugs and a loaded gun were found last week in a vehicle where a felon was passed out inside, authorities said Monday.

Police responded to a call of a man passed out in a vehicle in a 7-Eleven parking lot in Torrance on Aug. 16, the  Torrance Police Department said ."

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/hundreds-of-california-recall-ballots-drugs-loaded-gun-found-in-passed-out-felon-e2-80-99s-car-police/ar-AANGDNB

Which is a reminder of California's lingering problem with voting.  

From 2019:

"California officials still can’t say whether non-citizens voted in the June 2018 primary because a confusing government questionnaire about eligibility was created in a way that prevents a direct answer on citizenship.

The snag comes from a voter eligibility questionnaire that lumps five separate characteristics, such as age and citizenship status, into one prompt that people see at the Department of Motor Vehicles when they try to get or renew a driver’s license.

Investigators can see that people marked themselves as ineligible to vote or declined to answer eligibility questions, but they can’t tell why.


“We can’t assume why they declined to answer eligibility questions or why they said they were not eligible,” the Secretary of State’s Office wrote in an internal memo on Oct. 8, 2018.

That email and other documents The Sacramento Bee obtained through the Public Records Act shed light on why the Secretary of State has been unable to say clearly whether non-citizens voted last year.  The Bee filed a legal complaint  for the records when the Secretary of State initially withheld most of them."

https://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article223886630.html

Nothing has changed.



Thus, in the closing weeks of this election, Larry Elder has gone from a position of "too close to call" to the unenviable position of "a very tough reach." The California deep state has saved Newsom and the people of California have been stifled once again.

So you don't understand math then. Of course it is, as the country grows and the numbers of voters increase, the difference in vote totals will also increase.  A four point loss is pretty run of the mill.

Lol ... Math is fun, so how about this math?

California has a state and local unfunded liability approaching 2 Trillion dollars.   Yep, that's Trillion with a T.

For the math challenged that means California edges closer and closer to a complete financial meltdown each year.   And Governor dimbulb has just accelerated that inevitability during his tenure.   As revenue due to leaving taxpayers and businesses continues to spiral downward under his watch due to raised taxes and costs.    Elect him again so can accelerate your demise even faster ......

They've won the Presidency numerous times since then, and as recently as 2016 were in the strongest position nationally that they've been in about  a century.  They don't win every election. Sometimes they control Congress, sometimes they don't. Just like the Democrats.

That's how politics work, if you pay attention.  They will almost certainly control the House and probably the Senate after the next election. Will you then claim "the Democrats don't appeal to the voters today?" after the next narrow Democratic loss?

My comment has just as much to do with the topic as yours:

So residents are pissed at their own reps.

Are their reps Republicans? No, then your comment isn;t on topic.

They don't like blacks in their neighborhood?

Mostly it is white liberals who don't like it. Venice is only made up of 5 percent black, so it is likely the white liberals feel that is enough (translation....too many).

When the last right wing religious conservative bigot leaves CA it will be a great day and we'll still have 40 million residents with an annual GDP larger than most countries including Russia. Yes, we have fires and earthquakes, but we also have beautiful coastlines, majestic mountains, cities and communities who embrace progress and progressive ideals, equality, innovation, entrepreneur's, one third of the entire nations produce, tech industries and a thriving tourism industry. Just because some backwater hillbilly red States that have to rely on the federal government just to survive are jealous, that won't be turning off our lights as CA shifts to renewable energy sources and has the money to rebuild the 70+ year old power grid and infrastructure.

The roaring economy is only good for the very rich, because if you don't make at least $150k per year, you will never afford a house in the Bay Area or LA area.

Renewable energy sources? Good luck with that. Solar works half a 24 hour cycle and when its cloudy output is diminished. Wind only puts out when,,,,,,,it’s windy. Hydro, look at lake mead levels. Combine all three and its not nearly enough to power california.

Renewable energy sources? Good luck with that.

" In 2018, renewable energy accounted for  32.35%   2   of all  of California's in-state energy generation. This was made up by 3.03% biomass, 5.92% geothermal, 2.18% small-scale hydropower, 13.99% solar, and 7.23% wind energy."

.

Nearly one third of our in-State produced energy is already from renewable sources and that is growing daily. When the useless climate change denying dipshits are choking on fumes and poisoned ground water while their homes flood, again, due to increase hurricanes in their Red States and begging to buy power from CA in a decade or two we'll be sure to remind them that they dug their own graves.

What are the dipshits going to do when they suddenly realize they are 2/3 short of supplying their energy needs? Or maybe those dipshits are like dr jill (lol) and fractions are nothing but jumbled numbers that mean nothing? Talk about selling electricity to other states while still having rolling blackouts is fools talk.

I take it you didn't read the part where I said renewable energy production and investment in CA is "growing daily". We're already past the 1/3 mark, soon it will be 1/2 and not too far from that we will have 100% renewable energy while the Red States are still sucking the teat of dirty fossil fuels, which explains the dirty toothless gaping mouths of their ignorant but loyal addict's who continue to deny reality.

Yeah, i saw that. But maybe the gap toothed mouth breathers should pull their heads out of their asses and ask themselves “how reliable is renewable energy?” The two biggest,,,,solar only works 1/2 of a 24 hour cycle. And output is diminished by cloud cover. Wind only works when, hopefully this doesn’t soar over some heads, when it’s windy. Like i said it’ll be a long long time till any place relies 100% on renewable energy.

“how reliable is renewable energy?”

Ah yes, the question that dirty non-renewable marketing groups have engineered to manipulate dumb fuck morons to distrust renewable energy sources and keep those dumb fucks sucking at the teat of their cheap and dirty fossil fuels. As pointed out but completely ignored is that the "two biggest", solar and wind energy, can be harnessed while they work into battery banks that can be used not only during the day and when winds are high but at night and low wind periods. And of course those aren't the only renewable energy sources available, if we just keep increasing our renewable generation and advancing technology in those fields we will overcome any non-renewable resource options.

To keep betting on non-renewables means you're either a total dumb fuck or you work for or are connected to the non-renewable resource collection industry and are desperate to keep it going simply because you're too fucking stupid to re-train into the growing green industry markets making wind turbines, biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar panels and the batteries wherein renewable energies store their energy.

Dip shits and morons will likely point out that currently the most prolific renewable energy sources only work under certain conditions, sun and high winds, but they really ought to do some fucking research into the wide range of renewable energy options and stop acting so surprised when renewable energies kick their useless asses, "What!?!" energy can be stored to use during peak hours? And even at night and in low winds?  Who'd a thunk it!?!". /s
