Gov. Newsom Sends Spokeswoman to Deny His Vacation Spot

Second photo emerges of family enjoying the beach in Cabo

By Katy Grimes, December 1, 2021 2:12 pm

In a major scoop, the California Globe yesterday uncovered just where Governor Newsom and his family spent their mystery Mexico vacation. Our source had spotted the Newsom family spending Thanksgiving week at La Datcha Cabo San Lucas villa in Pedregal, near Cabo San Lucas in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur—an ultra lux property where a villa runs $23,000 to $29,000 per night, owned by Russian entrepreneur and businessman Oleg Tinkov. The source, who was also staying in Pedregal, said from their rental home they could see the 10,000 to 12,000 square foot villa, and could also see the Newsoms and their children, along with another couple.

The source sent the Globe photos, which we included in the article.

Before publishing, the Globe emailed the governor’s press office midday on Tuesday and asked if they could tell us whether the governor paid for his vacation villa himself, and if not, who did?

We heard back from the governor’s press secretary Erin Mellon late in the day: “Katy – This was a personal trip paid for by the family.”

We had several exchanges after that, starting with our question, “What family paid for this?”

The Globe has no reason to doubt the word of the governor’s press secretary. But as we mentioned in yesterday’s story, “by the family” is an intriguingly crafted answer, especially when one’s family members include prominent Californians whose surnames are Brown, Pelosi and Getty.

Following a short phone conversation with press spokeswoman Erin Mellon, it became apparent that the Governor sent her to deny that this was his vacation spot. She asked us to take down our story, but did it in an oddly indirect, lawyerly way. She declined to state clearly whether the male figure in a dark blue shirt and light pants was indeed Newsom, as our story claimed.

We replied by asking if Gov. Newsom and his family did not stay at La Datcha Cabo San Lucas Thanksgiving week, where did he stay, and what did it cost?

The governor’s spokeswoman declined to clarify where in Mexico the governor and his family stayed or the cost of that stay, other than repeating her assertion that the trip was funded by “The Newsom family.”

On Wednesday morning, as the story began gathering steam on social media, the spokesperson declined to specify further and added, “Katy – I will repeat what I sent last night. I cannot provide the location due to security concerns. They rented a home.”

And then … a second source emerged.

Today, a woman who had read yesterday’s Globe story, presumably including the update in which the governor denied through his spokeswoman that he had stayed at La Datcha, sent us another photo. She was staying on Playa Palmilla, which is near La Datcha. This photo is, according to the source, “on the public beach near the Palmilla with one child and his wife.”

Here is that photo.

Gov Newsom, do you still deny that you and your family were at La Datcha Cabo San Lucas last week? Cuz, dude … that’s you in the photo.

There is no denying that this photo, taken by a California Globe reader who asked not to be named for fear of retribution in a one-party state, shows our handsome governor, along with his son and the first partner.

Which is fine — a lovely family enjoying a vacation. But why the secrecy? Why the weird non-answers from the spokesperson? Why the denials? Are there really “security concerns” lingering a week after the governor left the entire country of Mexico?

There’s a saying in journalism: The way we’re taught to count is one, two, trend.

Last month, Governor Newsom canceled a climate change trip to Scotland at the very last moment, citing “family obligations.” That’s one. Then he disappeared for 10 days and went unseen and unaccounted for until he resurfaced at the decadent wedding of Getty oil heiress Ivy Love Getty. That’s two.

So now we’ve got the governor taking a vacation but his spokesperson won’t say where, won’t address what it costs, won’t even acknowledge or deny whether the photos are even of the governor, and then splits hairs over precisely which property the Newsom family technically rented in Cabo. Three makes a trend, indeed.

  1. Hmmm, secrecy adds to more speculation. His press secretary did her boss no favors!

    I find it hysterical that she asked Katy to take down the story. If she had truth and transparency on her side she would have shut the story down immediately but instead claims security reasons prevent her from revealing the resort name.
    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    So for now we can all guess who paid for it!
    My first guess will be Big Pharma, who are very pleased with his diktats, pushing the jab, continual use of faulty PCR tests, lock downs and suppression of early treatment protocols.
    My second guess will be the Gettys. He has done the bidding of these global elites for years. Like family they take care of each other, a potential source of the “family funding”.

      1. Hollywood is full of demented, satanic puppets.
        A very real possibility, Raymond.
        Recently, a story was done on the Getty family and the entertainment world. I believe it was posted for a while on Press California. The Ivy Getty wedding had a lot of satanic symbolism including her bizarre wedding invite!

        Maybe the Russian Oligarch gave Newsolini a heavy discount!
        The spokeswoman can say the family paid, perhaps a dollar a night😏

  2. And let’s not forget that our esteemed Governor is part of Klaus Schwab’s “Young Leaders Foundation” class of what, 1995???
    The guy is PURE

  3. Haven’t heard it mentioned yet but did he fly private or commercial? I would place my money on private but I’ll save the snarky comments about his environmental hypocrisy until it’s confirmed.

  4. The governor can vacation anywhere he wants and I hope he had a good time with his wife and children.
    What the governor can’t do is leave the state and act like all is normal while maintaining the state of emergency crushing the rest of us back home. If he can leave the state then there is no emergency.

    1. @Full Stop
      So True!
      There is no real emergency if he is able to vacation in Mexico!
      Mexico a state where the Health Minister declared it is dangerous to inject children with the mRNA gene therapy shot! He said he would not feel good injecting his grandchildren!

      Where are the lawsuits to end his “state of emergency” abuse?
      Enough is enough!

  5. Man-up Gov Gav. So you took the fam to Cabo. Show the receipts and be done with it. AND it’s way past time to relinquish those “emergency” powers. It’s not an emergency, you know it and we know it. After being caught in how many capers?? not wearing a mask, eating out during lockdowns, your kids in school not forced to wear masks… YOU are obviously not afraid of the “virus” and neither are we, so, after 2 years of this charade, let’s call it even and get back to living life.

  6. “It’s coming, whether you like it or not”. That statement was your preview into our future. It’s burned into my brain

    1. Here’s an old video that has the infamous Gavin rant you cite as well as an overview of how he trashed San Francisco and beyond. Put together by someone who apparently couldn’t believe he was running for Lt. Gov way back when. I found it interesting to look back on where we have been with this sociopathic politician.

  7. Well, of course he is in Cabo. Here is California, this crap hole Third World Communist state, there is no guaranty the power will be on on Thanksgiving Day. Many people were without power the entire day. He might have also been concerned that a flash mob of all the criminals he let out of jail might show up at his mansion to loot it while he was there.

    But we have a bunch of idiots who would rather vote for Democrats and have no power on Thanksgiving Day, than vote for Republicans who would keep the power on, and keep the criminals in jail.

  8. We really can’t, and shouldn’t, criticize or ridicule the Governor for vacationing well. It’s his business where and how he or anyone else spends whatever free time they are entitled to and have remaining on this earth. After all, it’s not as if he begrudges, regulates, penalizes or prevents anyone else for/from pursuing whatever they wish to do with their lives. Live and let live is my motto – treat others the way you would hope to be treated by them and leave the judging of others to whatever they consider to be their God or conscious as long as they are not harming others.

  10. He was likely anticipating the power outages for Thanksgiving and wanted to make certain that his family would not be affected. It’s incredible to see that Mexico has electric power when major parts of Commiefornia do NOT have electric power on.

  11. When the ring of truth is a dull thud, I think he’s maybe vacationing a bit further East. Maybe Cuba?
