The Left WINS

As most of you know, we have a recall election coming up here in California to get rid of Gavin Newsom.  The Left is fighting to keep him in…. no matter that he’s doing a really terrible job on crime, homelessness, COVID, etc.  And they’re fighting HARD:

First, the Left tried to keep Larry Elder, Black Conservative, off the ballot but a judge ruled for Larry, surprisingly enough.

Second, and here’s the rub:  I had ABC on for a few minutes last night and saw a commercial I see quite often;  it’s a very well produced TV commercial PRO Newsom and how “those Republicans” are trying to get rid of him.   The rest of the commentary is mostly how Republicans have been bad for America, difficult in California, and they need not be listened to.  GAVIN NEWSOM has to keep his seat for the sake of California!

I haven’t seen many Conservative ads for the long list of those running to unseat him.  And, I almost never watch ABC, NBC, CBS, etc., but I’ve seen this Dem add a few times now…’s REALLY strong and it’s SO EFFECTIVE to be on networks.  MORE people see it that way.


(EXPLANATION:  We’re voting to recall Newsom or not…..that’s ONE VOTE.  The SECOND VOTE is FOR A REPLACEMENT GOVERNOR.   The winner needs only win 20% of that vote and he/she is in.  )

    To the faithful Left, as well as young, impressionable minds in high schools and universities, the idea of socialism as presented by persuasive politicians and professors is a lot like the thrill of skydiving – great fun until that sudden stop at the end because the parachute made by Bangladeshi child-slave laborers failed.

    As for Nuisance Newsom, he comes across to me as just too damned slick, too oily, too slippery . . . a slip-sliding glad-handing, two-faced, forked-tongued twit who if deposed will be equally happy either starring in or producing and distributing hard-core porn.

    There are two problems I see.
    The first is Newsom is trying real hard to buy the election. Paying back rent for people, etc,
    and It sounds as if the vote for governor is so diluted he can win with a small percentage of the vote which is what McConnell has done for decades to stay in Kentucky.

    Good luck.

    Well, to the point of your post, you’re right, you’re right of course. Repubs campaign on “Vote for America !” using very uninspiring visuals, and the dems campaign on – Hopey Changey, Here’s some money for you, Save the Planet, a vote for a repub is a vote for slavery, bla bla bla, – and all the other stuff people with dust bunnies for brains are attracted to. Plus their sets look like fantasy island which is another thing idiots love.

    Most of us “have lives” beyond the entertainment industry laughingly called “news media.” Most people get up in the morning and go about their normal tasks. They go to work, they take the kids to school in the morning, they pick them up in the afternoon, they grocery shop, putter around in the yard … just all kinds of things with little time left over for much else.

    This normal activity produces a perfect environment for the political class because it means that busy people do not have the inclination or interest in becoming involved in the business of politics. All the political class does, from their waking hour to the time they retire, is politics.

    Comparatively speaking, the political class is a small group of people (activists really), from which most politicians emerge. They not only live for politics, but it’s also who they are at the core of their being. They make a living from it, and it feeds their fragile egos. I think that if suddenly politics wasn’t there anymore, these activists would simply waste away. They are either running for office, managing the campaigns for those who are, or appearing on news channels bragging about how much they know.

    The political class bill themselves as “policy experts.” You name it, and they know all about it. In fact, no one knows more about (fill in the blank) than they do. Well, except, such a proposition is only true in their own minds.

    This might be a good time to reflect on this fact: all of our problems (emphasis on all) are caused by the political class. As it turns out, they aren’t experts on anything. No, what they are is incompetent, so what we “normal” people are left with is choosing the least incompetent from among them. All we can say about them is that they usually get their way. Pick almost any war in modern history, and period of economic chaos, any severe interference with social tranquility, and the political class caused it or made it worse. Ahem: inflation right now is over 5% and it’s getting worse. Who caused that? Not you, not me, not anyone we know. The political class did that.

    Here’s another fact: truly good and decent men or women, the people with deeply held religious values, the people who truly are “experts” in their chosen fields, the people who should be leading our country (men or women with the same personal attributes as Ronald Reagan, for example, who only pop up every sixty or so years) — want nothing to do with the sinful slime that has become the foundation for the political class. So, we are left to choose the least dangerous slimeball to “lead” us.

    Newsome is a slimeball, as are all of those who are putting together “Hollywood” quality advertisements. Remember, it’s what they do. Sort of like snake oil salesmen or people who sell bars of soap for a dollar, offering the chance to win a $100 bill inside one of the bars of soap.

    So, let’s suppose Newsome gets canned … and let’s pretend Elder gets elected. How is that good man (Elder) going to deal (effectively) with California’s legislature? I’d have to ask Mr. Elder, “What are you thinking?” You see, any state’s legislature (or the US Congress) is no more than a place to store members of the political class in between elections until something “better” comes along. What are these people doing in the legislature? Are they making the world a better place? Yeah, right. Well, Newsome is just the figurehead of California’s problems; he’s who you recall. The problem is the legislature … and they didn’t “get there” through miraculous conception.

    Well, I guess I am part of the problem because I actually don’t see a solution. I only know that I won’t become part of the slimeball group. We’ve seen “good people” enter politics for all the right reasons, and we’ve seen them lured to the dark side because that’s how toxic politics is. I’d rather walk down the beach hand in hand with my sweetie, give her lots of hugs, smell the roses, and find reasons to laugh or smile. Life’s too short to waste it on politics.

    MUSTANG: No doubt about it “No, what they are is incompetent, so what we “normal” people are left with is choosing the least incompetent from among them.”

    Californians I speak to aren’t concerned about what Larry can do….most of us just want GAVIN OUT. And Larry’s a pretty powerful, persuasive guy; I’ve listened to him on LA radio for about 30 years…something like that…long time! He used to have his folks on..before they died (obviously)…so sweet to hear his father and mother’s stories about supporting their family here…
    I know Larry a bit…we recognize each other, anyway, when we see each other at functions….and he’s a very strong man and I believe he might do some good.
    BUT, you certainly make a point; he’ll be battling UPHILL with our legislature…

    I’d rather never feel that I don’t see a solution….I’m trying HARD not to feel that way. And it helps me to keep up on FOX, etc., and see SOOOO many good people fighting CRT, the border problems, crime, etc.
    It did me GOOD to see Black upscale Washingtonians CRYING on the shoulder of their BLack police chief who, after the recent shootings in that upscale neighborhood, says he’s tired of not \getting support and letting criminals out early, etc. That stuff means people are OVER this.
    \etc etc. Wish me luck in staying positive!
    I miss my sweetie, that’s for sure.

    KID; I THINK that problem isn’t one. SHOULD Gavin lose, and I believe he could…SHOULD he lose, on the same ballot are all those others, and ONE of them needs 20%. Period. SO as desperate as I felt when I saw Republicans were splintering our side so badly nobody but a Dem could replace him, I think this way works.
    Am I not understanding it correctly? I COULD BE!!!

    BOCOPRO…love your skydiving analogy…because then I read your Newsom paragraph and see HIM, instead of SOARING, sliding in grease on one of those long plastic things kids slide on…face first…miserably greasy…..i really despise Newsom

  7. kidme37 says:

    Z, so if One of the others get 20%, and Newsom gets 21% he wins? That would describe how McChuckles continues to stay in Congress.
    Or maybe it’s one vote to oust him or not, then a vote for new Gov takes place. Newsom won’t be ousted so the other vote will not matter.

    Maybe I’m not understanding the California details, which is entirely possible. 🙂

    This recall election will be a replay of the Seinfeld episode of in which Kramer spills out his guts to the others how he’s done with his current miscreant girlfriend leaving out none of her voluminous character flaws while declaring in no uncertain terms he is going to can her ass. The next scene has Kramer crying alligator tears while apologizing to the aforementioned beast, and woefully lamenting that he can’t live without her while begging her not to leave.

    PETER…we’ll see! Seems like everybody knows California better than I……!! ??? Hoping you’re wrong but we’re not counting on fair ballots either, considering what they tried to do to Elder. Of course, they also won’t publish DEMOCRAT by Newsom’s name (did you hear that, that his people didn’t fill out the form or something?) but I figure that’s just said so people THINK the ballot printers are truthful and fair. …who doesn’t know Newsom is a Democrat!?

    OF COURSE DEMOCRAT GOOD REPUBLICAN BAD, but it’s not BAD for the Reps, it’s EVIL.

    Dems good, Reps EVIL is more the saying, isn’t it. And, by the way, that’s EVERY State, not just California or New York.

    Peter….not sure but I suppose I sent Trump a very little money in the early days….not for at least five years, that’s for sure.

    EVERYBODY: I just got a video from a very rightwing neighbor telling me the military is being told to get their houses in order because the Left’s taking over the whole country…stores with no food, no gasoline, ships stuck in canals and other waterways, nobody unloading ships, nobody driving trucks anymore, etc etc.

    I texted back that since even the leftwing media would be affected, even THEY’d tell the truth about anything like this… I’m thinking this isn’t too much to worry about. There’s fear mongering on both sides…. Plus, I believe our military’s so leftwing they’d let us rot before admitting the Left was taking over, too.

    FWIW, I consider myself a “stay-the-hell-outta-my-house” libertarian with a deep, DEEP suspicion of ALL politicians, liberal and conservative. In fact, of the 535 “legislators” in our Congress, you’d have trouble finding two dozen who actually give a Romeo Alpha what happens to John Q.

    IMO, we NEVER get the straight skinny, whether it be on national security, the economy, health care, plannedemics, infrastructure, taxes, aliens, price controls, racism, Russia, China, Islam, UFOs, global warming, global cooling, or Ishkabibble.

    I trust NOTHING originating in Congress, the White House, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the CDC, the SS system, the EPA, DHS, CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, the NYSlimes, Sacramento, or that monstrosity on the East River infested with anti-American agents from 190 other nations.

    If ever there was irrefutable proof of the wisdom of the 2nd Amendment, the 2020 general election and the resulting 46* unministration comprises People’s Exhibit # 1.

    The current SotH is People’s 2, and the Senate Majority Leader is # 3. The complete list is approaching 7 figures, including the Military Joint Chiefs Chairman, any member of Congress who supports CRT, and every person associated with the Obama and/or Clinton crime families still drawing government salary.

    And now I’m going to eat about half a bag of garlic & vinegar flavored chips and wash ‘em down with a nice glass of Jameson’s with an ice-water back. I’d light up a Robert Burns Black Watch if I had one, which I haven’t done since 1985.

    A few months back we read for the first time in California history they were losing population. That should say volumes about how the people there feel.

I see a good possibility of an upset of the Dems!
