Newsom Recall Leader Says His Team Now Has Over the Needed 1.5 Million Signatures to Force a Recall Election This Year

Tom Del Beccaro, chairman of the Rescue California PAC working to recall Governor Gavin Newsom, said his team now has over the needed 1.5 million signatures to force a recall election this year.

Fox LA reported that those signatures still have to officially be verified so the recall organizers are working to get 2 million signatures by March 17 just in case the California swamp tosses out “invalid signatures.”

The below tweet was deleted by Twitter’s censors later that day:

California Governor Gavin Newsom’s recall is unavoidable – his poll numbers are tanking amid efforts to oust him from office.

According to two California polls, Newsom’s approval rating has sharply dropped in the last few months.

Only 46% of California voters approve of Newsom’s job performance, down from a 67% approval rating from September.

Newsom came under fire after he ordered businesses to close while keeping his own winery, Plumpjack Winery open.

Governor Newsom was also caught dining at The French Laundry in Napa Valley at $800 per person while telling Californians they couldn’t gather for Thanksgiving.

Recall organizers are working to gather 2 million signatures because they know Newsom and the Democrat machine will fight to toss out “invalid signatures.”

CA Gov. Newsom Hides Key Covid Data Used to Justify Endless Lockdowns, ‘Too Complex and Would Confuse the Public’

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is hiding key Covid data used to justify his endless lockdowns.

Newsom said the data is just too complex and would confuse and potentially mislead the public.

Gavin Newsom first locked down California in March of 2020 and he refuses to let go of his newfound power.

Small businesses have been destroyed and churches that have remained opened have been targeted by Newsom’s goons.

In December Newsom introduced regional stay-at-home orders which is triggered when ICU capacity falls below 15%.

However, Newsom is actually hiding key Covid information which is driving his policy decisions despite previously promising transparency.

Newsom this week opened up a Sacramento-area region even though its ICU capacity is below 9% — Other regions with the same ICU capacity however are still closed.

“What happened to the 15%? What was that all about?” asked Dr. George Rutherford, an epidemiologist and infectious-diseases control expert at University of California, San Francisco. “I was surprised. I assume they know something I don’t know.”

KTVU reported:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has from the start said his coronavirus policy decisions would be driven by data shared with the public to provide maximum transparency.

But with the state starting to emerge from its worst surge, his administration won’t disclose key information that will help determine when his latest stay-at-home order is lifted.

State health officials said they rely on a very complex set of measurements that would confuse and potentially mislead the public if they were made public.

“The state is wielding extraordinary power these days — power to close businesses, to directly impact people’s livelihoods and even lives — and so it owes it to Californians to disclose how and why it makes those decisions,” said Snyder, whose California public interest organization fights for greater government openness.

“Secrecy,” he said, “is exactly the wrong approach here and will only breed further mistrust, confusion and contempt for the crucial role of government in bringing us out of this crisis.”

Edison Cuts Off Power to Thousands of Homes in Southern California on Thanksgiving

On Thanksgiving eve, Edison International threatened to cut off power to homes in Southern California as a preventative measure against dry conditions and high winds. Edison said they would cut off power to Southern California homes and businesses on Thanksgiving to ‘prevent fires.’

The utility company followed through and cut off power to more than 8,000 homes in LA, Orange, Kern, Ventura and San Bernardino counties on Thanksgiving evening.

100,000 more homes are at risk for shutoffs depending on weather conditions as meteorologists warn of strong Santa Ana winds.

Yahoo News reported:

More than 8,000 Southern California Edison customers were without power on Thanksgiving evening, with 100,000 more at risk of having the lights turned out as high winds led to elevated wildfire risk, officials said.

Homes in Los Angeles, Orange, Kern and San Bernardino counties were affected by outages as part of the utility company’s public safety power shutoff program, which is intended to reduce the risk that electrical systems become an ignition point for wildfires.

As of 9:30 p.m., 3,015 customers were without power in Ventura County, while 2,679 customers lost service in Orange County, according to an outage map managed by the utility company. Roughly 1,200 residences in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties were also affected by the shutdowns by late Thursday night, the company said.

The Socialist utopia of California: Where homelessness, used needles in the streets and deliberate power outages that resembles something out of India in the 1970’s or current day Venezuela and North Korea are the new norm.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Children Return to In-Classroom Private School

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) said Friday that his four children have returned to in-person learning at a private school in Sacramento County, while the California Teachers Association (CTA) has resisted public school openings.

Newsom’s children’s school is operating under a “phased-in” approach to in-classroom learning that uses a hybrid model of alternating virtual with in-person classes, a Politico report noted. Next month, the school is expected to return to full-time in-classroom education.

As Politico observed, many public schools across the state remain closed under pandemic policies, including mostly all those in Sacramento County, where the governor resides.

“They’re phasing back into school and we are phasing out of our very challenging distance learning that we’ve been doing, so many parents are doing up and down the state,” Newsom said when asked about his own children’s education.

Newsom has encouraged schools to open, leaving the decision up to local school districts. However, CTA, the state’s main teachers’ union, has refused to allow its members to return to their classrooms, citing safety concerns.

In September, CTA, an affiliate of the National Education Association, said school districts were “rushing” to return to in-classroom learning and demanded uniform Chinese coronavirus testing and tracing. The union called upon the governor to issue state mandates for all government schools.

“Your leadership and action are needed to ensure that robust testing, tracing and isolation support, along with other prevention measures, are in place before students, educators and support staff return to in-person learning,” CTA President E. Toby Boyd wrote in a letter to Newsom and other state leaders. “California must fund, coordinate, and operationalize a true public health response to support public education in our state.”

The governor cited $5.3 billion in state and federal funding to assist with schools’ reopening efforts, plus two months of personal protective equipment (PPE) available to districts from the state.

Newsom gave waivers to private schools that wanted to reopen, a move that drew criticism from CTA.

The governor said the reasons for returning to in-classroom learning are the need for social-emotional learning to continue and to help parents.

“We absolutely believe that the social-emotional learning that occurs in the classroom is the best place for our kids, certainly the best place for their parents as well,” Newsom said. “And, so, it is absolutely incumbent to do everything in our power to provide support to our districts so that they can safely reopen, emphasis on safely reopen.”
