Recall Newsom Rally in Montecito

How is that a bipartisan group? They are trying to kick out a duly elected Governor and replace him with someone most California voters never heard of and would never elect as Governor in a regular election.

SBREADER - Does the makeup of the group truly matter? What is important is that this is (another) group of people tired of Newsom's incompetence and failure to act in the best interest of all Californians. There are a significant number of people that have heard of Larry Elder, enough that support Elder and prompted this recall election. Larry Elder will replace Newsom as Governor of California.

Yes Doulie, what was that??? Elder got 2 million votes. That does not get you elected Governor in Cali.

Wow! I would not have expected to see that in montecito. This is very encouraging and gives me hope. Way to get out there and make a difference! Hopefully we will have a new governor soon.

CHIP - just because it was IN Montecito, doesn't mean it was residents of Montecito. Hey, so what "difference" do you really think Elder will be able to make?

BRILLIANT it takes a special kind of MORON to hold a Political "Rally" on a Highway overpass. Lets DISTRACT drivers going 55 (or more) with our message?

Number One: Elder will wield a veto pen and make state legislators vote individually to overturn his veto, instead of hiding behind the "governors signature" on unpopular legislation. Notice how many times our own local legislators are now voting "abstain" on locally unpopular legislation (Eg. destruction of single family zoning)? To overturn any governor's veto, they will now have to stand up and be counted. And run on their real track record, not just phoning it in with an abstention once their party boss gets enough votes without them. Number Two: Elder can both articulate and defend the conservative agenda that will rise above the screeches of the media and one-party dominant voices in this state. Number Three: He will expose the real political machine agenda that has controlled this state for the past 20 years, as they have to rise up in opposition to him; not just hide behind their stealth control of their current insider majority - the bully pulpit advantage - giving voice to the many who consider. themselves drowned out by the Democrat machine. Number Four: If he decides to run for a full term in a year, then we will see where his election and introduction of conservative governing principles will take him. If not, he will have broken the current Democrat lock on state politics and exposed their vulnerabilities for others to step into the vacuum. Keven Kiley, current Assemblyman also on the ballot is looking like a very attractive choice for prime time in this state. Number Five: Many of us do want to Save California. That is what this is all about. Current Gov Newsom and the Democrat super-majority threw this Save California movement into urgency mode and nothing else. Is it too late to stop this rapid and steep decline? We will get a hint from this recall outcome and which way the very large numbers of independent decline to state (DTS) votes go? California is no longer divided between GOP and Democrats - the state is now shared with the DTS voters, who have reached critical mass and co-equal status.

Sac, I think elder will be able to ease covid restrictions and mask rules, help reduce the cost of utilities, start the process of improving our water infrastructure, start the process of improving forest management so we can finally put a stop to all these “mega fires,” start the process of improving road and freeway infrastructure to mitigate traffic congestion, reduce restrictive regulations on property development to facilitate the construction of new housing, reduce the cost of gasoline, reduce the cost of vehicle registration, and much much more. I think elder could accomplish a lot in a year. What has newsom accomplished to improve our lives?

CHIP - those things sound good, good luck with that! Does Larry have a great forest sweeping plan? Maybe an "in" with some broom manufacturers?

But seriously.... "ease covid restrictions and mask rules" --- why? How many restrictions do you see in place these days? Kids are back in school, youth sports are back, pro sports are back, all businesses are open. So, again, what "covid restrictions" still need easing? Are people really still whining about muh freedoms?

Along with getting rid of minimum wage, all mask rules, all vaccine rules, paying slave owners for loss of their "property", etc., etc.
Should be great ...NOT

Recall Newsom Rally in Montecito

um Chip....that all sounds good to you? easing mandated mask requirements? so you want a state like other red states that have soaring COVID deaths? Really? Go to Florida then dude. Or Texas. Stay there. So is Elder going to talk to the clouds and make more rain happen and more el ninos? no he can't and won't. Improving forest management? How? Following that idiot Trumps suggestion of raking the forest? It's caused by drought. Also by weather. Also by idiots playing with fire. It's random. So no, Elder can't stop or controll that either. Next item, freeway infrastructure? our freeways have been under improvement construction for over 25 years. So that has already happened under someone else's term. Reduce restrictions on property development. Ok, so build build build. Then what? Wait for a rainstorm to destroy the big homes that were freshly built on cliffs and protected bluffs and in protected open space areas? Right. Just turn it all into concrete so the developers can build more housing that very few can afford or want, being built on once protected lands. Reduce the cost of gasoline? By removing all of the emission controls we have in our fuel? Yeah let's erase any positive progress that we have made in 20 years, just so you can save maybe $3.00 per station visit. Right.
You ask what Newsome has done to improve our lives? Well let's see, i'll start and end with the same point. He forced idiots like yourself to wear a mask, even though you think you know more than doctors and scientists and virologists, so others don't get the virus and die. I DON'T CARE THAT HE WENT TO A FANCY DINNER. Good for him. That's on his time, he can do what he wants. You're also trying to grade newsome during a pandemic when everything has fallen apart and during a 4 year terrible presidency that bashed our state and tried to withhold funding. Newsome is managing the 5th largest economy on EARTH. He's doing as good as anyone can. The points you make are baffling but predictable considering you think Trump was a good president.

hahaha I'm just a realist Sac...i sit in the middle of the aisle, and my chances would be as good as Jello Biafra's chances when he ran against Jerry Brown in the 80s (Jello was/is the front man for the Dead Kennedys punk band from SF, very politically motivated). Plus...my hair isn't nearly as cool as Newsomes, nor do i have as many blind followers as Eldar.

This is a pretty small group. Looks like maybe 2 dozen. They seem to be the crowd that follows Elder around. Probably paid to do so but may be just enthusiasts. One cannot trust any of this anymore as we know that politicians regularly hire folks to make a showing. (The ethics of those taking the money is another question--Trump began his candidacy with hired NY models and actors watching him descend the escalator. Pretty likely he also hired the "Black for Trump" persona that was de riguer at every rally right behind him.) So don't be too impressed by this sort of small event.

"TDS" or whatever you want to call it is a good thing. No true American should be OK with fomenting insurrection and violence against our law enforcement officers.

OMG Sac, I don't think you could put more hypocrisy and false information in two sentences. You do know the FBI released their report regarding 1/6, and it doesn't match your false rhetoric? And were you camping out of internet range all last summer to miss the looting, rioting, and burring of police stations egged on by ever member of the left that was looking to score some woke political points? I can't even with you....

VOICE - 1) This isn't about the summer riots. Whataboutism, so stop it. 2) attacking our capitol was insurrection. No, Trump didn't say "go attack the capitol," but he sure as heck took his sweet time telling them to stop after he whipped the low-IQ fools into frenzy saying Congress is "stealing" their election. Nuances and subtleties, man. They're important.

OMG Voice of Unreason, there is no FBI report regarding 1/6 that has exonerated Trump or his people of guilt for attack on the capitol. All that you heard about on Fox News was information from "sources" in the FBI. Baaaaaa baaaaa sheepie.

It must be nice living with hands over your eyes and fingers in your ears ignoring half of reality, you didn't even google FBI 1/6. No wonder you guys think everything is hunky dory in CA and our governor has done a good job. Sac when you bring up violence against police instigated by politicians, the summer riots and associated violence that was openly encourage by current members of the house and senate is absouteltly fair game and not whataboutsim. You also clearly haven't actually read anything about the timeline from 1/6 and continue to parrot snippets from the media. I bet you didn't even listen or read his speech that day in full, just a few 5 second soundbites carefully selected by the talking head you so on TV so now you're an expert and know more than the FBI.

VOICE - whataboutism, your favorite and, usually only, response. Not engaging with this level of dishonesty.

But, since I can't just walk away (as you tend to do), here you go: "The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result" ----- yep, read that again. It has NOTHING to do with, nor does it conclude that Trump in no way instigated, encouraged, supported, failed to stop, etc etc the violent insurrection against our democracy. In fact, that it was not an organized and planned, premeditated attack, lends even MORE credence to the idea that the insurrection was the result of an inflammatory and bombastic event (gee, I wonder what....) that fed lies and paranoid rhetoric into a crowd of agitated and gullible rioters who were clearly ready for violence. To say Trump had nothing to do with the cowardly attack on my government is intellectually dishonest and treasonous, if you ask me.

And I don't give a rats &&^ about every word in his speech, he knew what he was doing. He'd been doing it for over 4 years. His people wanted to fight, he told them to "If you don't fight like hell you're not going to have a country anymore" and "We're going to the Capitol!" as if to rally them behind him. Sadly, the poor fools thought they were truly an army of patriots being led into battle by a pathetic cowards.

No man, you're just wrong.

VOICE - just this and I'm done. Trump may not have said to his followers (no one else was listening) to "drink bleach," but his comment about injecting it sure influenced them....

"A new survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 4% of respondents consumed or gargled diluted bleach solutions, soapy water and other disinfectants in an effort to protect themselves from the coronavirus......The survey, which consisted of more than 500 participants, was conducted in May – after President Donald Trump's widely criticized coronavirus task force briefing in April in which he pondered the use of disinfectants to treat the virus." ---- https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2020-06-05/cdc-some-people-did-take-bleach-to-protect-from-coronavirus

Sac, 1st: Not siding with or saying anything that happened at the capital was okay. That said, Yeah, read the transcript... or just a non-right-wing media fact check.
AP FACT CHECK: Trump’s call to action distorted in debate
https://apnews.com/article/fact-check-trump-us-capitol-remarks-221518bc174f9bc3dd6e108e653ed08d
Just a bunch of crazies that got riled up, just like the riots. I'm 100% against ALL of it. They should all be rounded up and prosecuted! At least the capital ones are, but they all should be. Unfortunately, it's all political.
#2: You can't have a conversation go from a hand full of people holding signs to get people to vote their way, then to trump, then accuse another about whataboutism.

OGSB - Thanks, but my comment about Trump was in response to the TDS comment on Sept 13, at 1:03pm so no, it was not "whataboutism" and my subsequent comments to VOICE were not hypocritical in the vein.

"the FBI released their report regarding 1/6, and it doesn't match your false rhetoric" <- lying, as always, "the looting, rioting, and burring of police stations egged on by ever member of the left that was looking to score some woke political point" <- lying, as always.

I find it entertaining if anyone posts ANY political viewpoint other than the DOMINANT Democrat rule, and I mean 95% ruling political party in now, a very changed California, the comments are down voting and ridiculed at "Trump" voters... LOL~ I guess everyone's political GOAL is 100% domination over the people... That is scary.

Uhhh Tom Bradley, a person of color ran for governor in 1982 and 1986 in a normal general election. Memo to the Pro Recall protestors: making the traffic worse than it already is with your demonstration is a horrible way to get votes.

Elder will not wake up on September 15th as governor because Newsom will not be recalled on September 14th!

Let's go Elder! So encouraging to see that there are enough sensible people in California to get this recall on the books and a chance for a terrible governor out of here. California will be red again one day if the democratic party keeps their destructive (and self destrutive) habits up. The libs should be happy too since Gavin's most possibly replacement is African American!
