2022, The Year of Diversions: Gov. Newsom Clings to Covid Powers, Climate Lies, and More

CA Globe headlines tell what really happened in 2022

By Katy Grimes, December 31, 2022 2:30 am

Instead of an overview of the year that was 2022, I thought I’d re-post important California Globe headlines and the links to the articles.

These story headlines tell us all what really happened in 2022 in California – politics, spending, the mandates and regulations, and constitutional abuses. Notably, Governor Gavin Newsom even vetoed a bill to limit his Covid emergency powers which he first declared in March 2020; Newsom maintains emergency powers more than 1,000 days, and nearly 3 years later.

Sir Winston Churchill warned us, “evils can be created much quicker than they can be cured.” He must have been anticipating the California Governor and elected members of the Legislature in 2022 when he said, “To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”

We strive every day to bring you the truth as we obsessively chronicle everything political throughout the state of California. Click on any headline for the article. And please, share your thoughts in the comments section.

Have a very Happy New Year.

  1. “To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”

    Yes, indeed. All the Best for a Happy New Year to the Globe staff and contributors. Thanks for a great 2022 of Truth over Lies!

  2. It’s great to see some conservative news for a change! It’s so rare lately. Most of the time it is just mainstream government controlled liberal media spewing only propaganda!!!!! Thanks for not being afraid to publish the truth! Keep it coming!

  3. Thank you for this, Katy Grimes. The past year’s Globe headlines tell the story better than anything else possibly could of an extremely difficult 2022 when it seems more Californians than ever were personally affected by the dysfunction of the state coupled with the deep distress of suspecting, and with good reason, that our votes may count less than they ever have before. All brought to us by the malevolence of our arrogant, narcissistic governor as well as a destructive gang of other leftist politicians and bureaucrats, who are always more than willing, ready, and able to jam the jackboot on our necks.
    Perhaps in 2023, helped along by all of our hard work, real involvement, practical participation, and maybe some ‘quirks of history’ and good luck thrown in, too, we could possibly see the beginning of a turnaround in our beloved once-Golden State. Who knows, but it would be a wonderful thing, wouldn’t it. Happy New Year.

  4. Wow, Katy! You have a gift for shining a spotlight on California’s plight! Everything in the dark, will be brought to
    the light! Just today, Judge halts State (CA) negotiating fast-food, union contract; power outages hit thousands in California; electric vehicle batteries fail in extreme cold and warnings to park away from structures because they might spontaneously erupt in fire; Newsom makes cameo at Southern Border with no solutions…doesn’t offer Natl Guard troops to help curb the flow of immigration, prevents ICE access to those being released from jail, San Diego receives 1,000 with beds for only 600 county homeless; mustn’t forget ‘No-Bid’ contracts for
    masks (China owned company?) and Blue Shield (campaign donor); CA push to reduce/eliminate sentence for
    pedophiles to harm children, open air drugs markets, legal prostitution…in addition to CRT/Trans/vaxx without
    parental approval. Mass exodus (2022- additional 113,000), lost Congressional seat; Election/Covid censorship by Big Tech, questionable campaign donors (ie. Soros). Newsom’s loyalty to foreign entity (WEF/UN), enacting agenda 2030 (unconstitutional and treason?)… Light at the end of the tunnel ‘New California’ kicks off with 29 counties and climbing! Won’t be long before there’s a new calendar as well, beginning the New Year in Spring, reflecting our true nature and balance! I read the last chapter…. God Wins! Happy New Year Katy, Evan, Chris, Globe Staff, contributors, and commentors!

    1. Thank you again Marilyn Midura for all of your relevant news flashes and commentary. GREAT NEWS about the judge blocking the state’s commie fast food union law — hadn’t known about it because there was no chance today to look at much of the general CA news. In the meantime (as you know, but others may not) restaurant owners and other interested parties are in the process of gathering signatures for a 2024 state ballot measure that will (we hope) put a dagger in this particular example of the lefties’ destructive anti-American nonsense. Let’s hope and pray they succeed. Happy New Year!

  5. Ugh, it’s just wrong that Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom maintains emergency powers nearly 3 years later after he first declared them in March 2020? He’s like a petty evil dictator? Gov. Newsom needs to be brought before a tribunal and be held accountable for crimes against humanity for locking healthy Californians and small businesses down (while excluding himself and his cronies) and for mandating experimental mRNA shots that have injured and killed thousands of innocent people. He and his soul have a lot to answer for?

  6. Okay, now that I have picked my jaw off the ground, I’d like to thank Katy and staff for the tireless hours spent to keep us informed and hold the despots in Sacramento accountable.
    The invaluable comments posted here by ShowandTell, Marilyn, Samantha and Raymond are shared and appreciated by me.
    We have taken a “E ride” ticket and rode one hell of a ride these last few years, “A Mr. Newsom’s Wild Ride”. A ride with a lot of twists and turns and at the the end leaves me sick to my stomach. Newsom and the supermajority have brought much damage to this state. Let’s not forget the global elite want to import this clown to the White House! It is my hope that “Mr. Newsom’s Wild Ride” will be demoted to the “A ride” ticket, the one no one else cares to get on.

    Happy New Year to you Katy and the entire California Globe crew. You make living in California a little bit easier to stomach. Many blessings to all in 2023. Remember to look up!

    1. You’re so right, we have really been through it, haven’t we, Cali Girl? Your hope for the end of “Mr. Newsom’s Wild Ride” is my hope too and no doubt the hope of millions of our fellow Californians. We’ll see what 2023 brings and what can be done, if anything, to affect the collision course we seem to be on. Even if it only amounts to clawing back the worst of what our “leaders” attempt to do to us.
      I appreciate you, Cali Girl. You’re the person I first became acquainted with in this comments section and I feel like I know you —- in spite of our anonymity. Your comments are not only smart and amusing, but your presence in this section has been like a ray of sunshine every time you show up.
      Happy New Year to you and your family!

      1. Yes, we all have been through a lot ShowandTell, especially the schoolchildren in this state.
        @ShowandTell, thank you so much for your very kind sentiments. I always look forward to your well thought out opinions and appreciate the time you take to express them. It is my hope that the readers who discover the California Globe will come to appreciate the free thinking that happens here. It is funny, but I feel that you are an old spirit friend as well. Who knows maybe our paths will cross someday. It is good to know there are humans that care out in this crazy state, on this crazy wild ride that Newsom steers for now!
        Happy New Year to you and your family as well. Many blessings to you.

  7. Looking back at these headlines and the recurring stories of the housing-homeless crisis and the thought of not enough affordable housing and thus the homeless crisis, i think that I’ve connected two issues and stumbled upon Governor Newsom’s clandestine strategy and tactic to increase available housing. It really is simple math. The more people you get to leave the state, the more housing that opens up! Brilliant when you think about it. And he gets to continually demagogue the issue and keep mud off of his shoes.

  8. Good grief… no WONDER people are leaving California in droves, like a reverse migration from the “Dust Bowl” days…
    God is good, and is blessing us with abundant RAIN AND SNOW to start 2023!!!
    May we continue to seek His Truth and receive His Blessings in 2023, including relief from Newsom’s draconian and tyrannical execution of his World Economic Forum Agenda 2030 playbook, and may all those promulgating the WEF’s beliefs that they are GREATER than God, receive the smite of God’s mighty power against them this year, in whatever form God deems necessary….
    To God be the glory….

  9. Katy, This is a great array of articles highlighting the vast criminality, (criminalities), of my former party~!!

    I’m still waiting for you to stop your actions which support that saying, “The CAGOP, The Party That Loves to Lose”, by means of your blocking me from my steadfast support of your FB page, (in your blind support of an angry Phil Cowan comment toward me regarding his long-vanished radio talk show on KTKZ). The CAGOP has stabbed many folks in the back, and, it loses elections due to this “school marm” mentality.

  10. Newsom and the rest of the Democratic Party is beholding only to special interests. That said, the fool effectively ended forest management, bringing on the devastating fires that destroyed billions of dollars in property and natural habitat. It was bizarre to watch the video of his visit to the charred remains of one section of our forests, where he smugly declared that the verdict is in, and that we now know that the fires were caused by “climate change.” The verdict is also in on the kind of ideological ass California has elected.
