Newsom To Remain Dictator of California
Newsom To Remain Dictator of California
The news reports from the mainstream media were gleeful almost in talking about yesterday’s recall election in California. Declaring Gavin Newsom victorious over a recall was the news they were hoping for.
Oh, they were so giddy they couldn’t stand it:
Not necessarily the news some counties wanted to hear. Read: California’s Central Valley. Farming areas in the Central Valley were impacted by not only COVID restrictions but water restrictions and a “historic drought”. One that wasn’t Newsom’s fault, you see. It was “ten years in the making“, according to CNN.
No water? No jobs? Meh. No problem. The real problem here? COVID, of course. Hey, Californians, you may be without water to wash your hands, jobs and money to eat and pay your rent but hell…you’ll be safe from the CORONAVIRUS!
Ironically, some of the first votes tallied to not recall Newsom were from none other than Napa county. Go figure. The wine snobs will most likely throw a party for him (on the down-low, this time). They, most likely, will also NOT have to deal with silly little mask mandates for themselves or their kids attending their private little day schools overlooking those bucolic vineyards. Meanwhile, kids in the Central Valley and inner cities will be crammed in like sardines on the bus and forced to wear masks in classrooms of public schools. That’s if, the teachers’ union who bankrolled Newsom doesn’t decide it’s too dangerous to teach these kids with a pandemic and all.
Early result: ‘no’ at 72 percent in Napa County, the heavily Democratic wine country north of the Bay Area. Newsom won 65 percent of the vote in Napa in 2018, so this is a strong showing for him in the early going.”-Nate Cohn, The New York Times
I know, it seems so petty of me to zone in on the mask mandates, doesn’t it? Some pretentious jackass who drank way too much Gewürztraminer in celebration of Gavin last night is reading this and is probably calling me an illiterate, anti-vaxxer right about now. (Newsflash: I’m not either of these.)
But when someone like Newsom has $39 million in funds raised from the likes of teachers’ unions, abortion rights activists and George Soros, their fate is pretty much sealed. And we’re not even talking about big, Hollywood money that came his way.
Climbing murder rates and homelessness? Meh. No problem. The likes of Soros and the elites won’t see any of this in their neck of the woods. And, speaking of woods, fires burning, you ask? They won’t see those forests go up in flames, either. “Oh, the climate!” They’ll shriek about it, as they shove their ugly, over-priced frocks into their Louis Vuitton luggage and board their private jets to attend this week’s Met Gala…sans mask, of course. (The masks are only for “the help”).
Tonight, California voted NO on the recall and YES to…
The minimum wage.
We rejected cynicism and bigotry and chose hope and progress.
Thank you, California.

The “science” that shuts down small businesses but keeps fancy parties amongst those of like minds going. Roger that, Governor.
Thank you Gov. Newsom! I am beyond the moon happy that you prevailed and my fellow Californians believe in YOU and SCIENCE and WOMEN'S RIGHTS and ALL THOSE THINGS.

All men and women are created by…well, you know the thing.
Thank you! This PROUD mama is grateful that I don’t have to worry about fighting hate bills that target trans kiddos until the next election! Thank you California for showing up!

Oh, no! Did I trigger someone on here from the woke mom’s playgroup of bi-gender, masculine of center, two-spirited kiddos by using just two pronouns? Go pour a glass of Chardonnay, figure out which outfits your kids will wear to school tomorrow to completely confuse and make their teachers uncomfortable so maybe you can file a lawsuit when they get their chosen gender-of-the-day wrong, and be done with it already, you birthing person, you. I know, I know. I need to simmer down and have a “reality check”. This recall election all came down to important issues like the homelessness in the state, crime and yes, COVID and the impending doom of copious hate bills that target trans kiddos, apparently.
Gavin Newsom gets to stay and all is happy in the congested, smoggy cesspool of California. Bigotry is non-existent and hope and progress is possible because Californians did not vote for “Trump in Black Face“. Great job, Californians. some of you voted to keep the rich, white guy in office. Yay, you! Like, fer sure!
Those who voted “no” to the recall in surrounding counties put the hard-hit areas of the Central Valley in a chokehold. While these areas may be struggling to breathe, Newsom lives to govern another day and to go to more maskless dinner soirees at The French Laundry on Californians’ dime while he tells everyone else to stay the hell home this Christmas. Count it all joy. For some Californians, it might be time to be wheels up.
