The governor will “probably go deep »

Bontasaurus Wrecks

Featured image California’s Chino Valley School District has established a policy of notifying parents if their children start “transitioning” to a different gender.  California attorney general Rob Bonta is suing the district on the grounds that the policy: has placed transgender and gender nonconforming students in danger of imminent, irreparable harm from the consequences of forced disclosures.

Pompadour and Circumstance

Featured image Californians are ramping up another recall for Gov. Gavin Newsom, a good thing for America even if it fails, as in 2021. A new recall in California will divert attention from races across the country, force Democrats to spend millions. The best outcome would be a successful recall of Newsom his own self. The coiffed Democrat is a construct of the Brown, Newsom, Pelosi and Getty families, a belch from »

White Governor Supremacy

Featured image Does California Governor Gavin Newsom, the product of the “four San Francisco families  – the Browns, the Newsoms, the Pelosis and the Gettys” that have dominated California politics for decades, need more power? Assembly Constitutional Amendment 7, which Scott reported on here last week, will do just that. There’s more to the backstory that should be known. The California Civil Rights Initiative (CCRI), Proposition 209 on the 1996 ballot, eliminated »

Gavin Escuela

Gavin Newsom attended Santa Clara University on a “partial baseball scholarship,” and as he told Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal in 2019, “the only reason I am governor of California, the only reason you are talking to me right now, is because of baseball.” That same year, veteran California commentator Dan Walters advanced other reasons Gavin Newsom might be governor of California: Newsom is succeeding someone who »

The Pangloss-Pétain Governor

Featured image In his debate with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, California Gov. Gavin Newsom claimed, “We’ve already established that more people are moving from Florida to California.” That caught the attention of Lee Ohanian, research fellow at the Independent Institute, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and professor of economics at UCLA. “The rate of California’s population outflow to Florida has in fact accelerated,” professor Ohanian explains. “In 2022, California had a »

The Daily Chart: Thursday’s Undercard Debate

Featured image As everyone knows, this Thursday Gavin Newsom and Ron DeSantis will square off in a debate on Fox News that is clearly meant to be a proxy for the presidential race a lot of people in both parties wish we would have next year. Think of it as the undercard for the heavyweight bout to follow between the aging champs hanging on past their prime. Don’t underestimate Newsom: he’ll come »

Winsom Newsom’s Kamala Word Salad Recipe

Featured image It is conventional wisdom right now that Gavin Newsom is the savior of the Democrats if Biden drops out, and it is also no secret among California Democrats that Newsom and Kamala Harris hate each other, but each perceives the other as an obstacle to their political ambitions. But its seems there’s something in the water in San Francisco that made them both blithering idiots. Context: A fire underneath a »

Gavin Biden/Joe Newsom

Featured image On his recent trip to China, California Gov. Gavin Newsom got into a pick-up basketball game and knocked over a Chinese student about half his size. In his own frequent falls, Joe Biden has yet to take down a bystander, but the two men have more in common than people might think.  Consider, for example, their troubles with reading and writing. “For years, Newsom has been very open about the »

Gavin Trudeau

Featured image “The only way we can solve the climate crisis is to continue our long-standing cooperation with China,” proclaimed Gavin Newsom during his trip to China. For the California governor, collaboration with one of the world’s leading polluters, a one-party Stalinist police state, is the “only way” to solve a “crisis” that is an existential problem. Gov. Newsom allegedly raised human-rights issues but failed to call for China to release David »

Newsom News from Israel

Newsom jumps the shark

Featured image California Governor Gavin Newsom promised to appoint a black woman to replace the late Dianne Feinstein in the Senate, so you know this is a man who has his priorities in order.

Gov. Gavin Grades Biden’s “Master Class.”

Featured image “I want a seasoned pro that knows how to get things done,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom told CNN on Monday. “I’m a little old-fashioned.

The Newsom Shadow Campaign Emerges from the Shadows?

Featured image This Tweet X-File from Governor Brylcreem is something: First, it highlights a scandalous fact—that California has spent $15 billion to “solve” homelessness. You’d think $15 billion would go a long way, even in high cost California, toward building shelters and treatment facilities. Instead homelessness has grown larger, as any conservative policy wonk would have predicted. But Awesome Newsom notes, second, that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked local »

In the shadows

Featured image I think it is an open secret in Washington that President Biden is a few elements short of a compound. Indeed, word has somehow gotten out to the rest of us in flyover land: “Seventy-seven percent of Americans say President Biden would be too old to be effective if he were reelected in 2024, according to a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs poll” (I’m quoting Brittany Bernstein/NRO)(footnote: “Meanwhile, »

DeSantis’s Smart Moves

DeSantis made a smart move yesterday by accepting the challenge to debate California Governor Gavin Newsom one-on-one. It’s a great idea, as it not only features a generational shift from the old guys currently in the lead, but may also contrast with Trump’s possible boycott of the first GOP debate scheduled for next »

Man Bites Dog: Gavin Newsom Betrays Progressives!

Featured image There’s long been reason to believe Gov. Gavin Newsom is nearly as dumb as his “frenemy” Kamala Harris, but this week gives some of the best proof yet: he has departed from Progressive orthodoxy in the dumbest way possible. You may have heard that he has proposed a constitutional amendment to allow for “common sense” gun control, such as background checks, bans on so-called “assault weapons,” and waiting periods for »
