  1. Appreciate THE LIST. It puts all of the unmitigated gall and shamelessness of Wanna-Be Dictator Newsom in one easily-accessible place.

  2. Come on Californians sign the Recall Newsom petition now.
    No excuses we need every legal signature, because obviously we don’t trust them to count correctly, just Google (I now hate that term) the website download a form and fill it in.
    Ps. To the rest of the country, please support conservative Californians. We choose to stay and fight and if we don’t stop this turd he will run for President in 2024.

    1. Great encouragement, Smogtester.
      We stay and fight. So many good people have left this state and I do not blame them one bit. For many of us it is home, we were born here, raised our families here. It does get more difficult. We need conservatives and the GOP to support our efforts and our candidates. We are the fly overs in California. The only way we can change our course is to shine a light on the corruption and highlight family values which crosses party and ethnic lines.
      This is why I am grateful to Katy Grimes and California Globe.
