Gov. Newsom Recall Granted 120 More Days to Collect Signatures

That Gavin Newsom will have to defend his position as governor in a recall election has just become serious

By Edward Ring, November 6, 2020 4:29 pm

The Recall Gavin 2020 campaign has been given a 120 day extension to collect 1,495,709 signed petitions, which if validated by the Secretary of State, would force Governor Newsom to defend his seat in a special election. The last time there was a recall election, back in October 2003, California’s voters sent Governor Gray Davis into early retirement.

With this extension, the odds have improved on what was an uphill battle. According to lead proponent Orrin Heatlie, the recall campaign has already collected and verified over 700,000 signed recall petitions. Going forward, they have the momentum of over 5,000 volunteers actively circulating petitions who are now veterans, and they no longer have the distraction of what has been a tumultuous election season.

Even if the Newsom recall campaign does not ultimately succeed in forcing a recall election, they have already made history. No grassroots ballot initiative campaign in California, ever, has gathered this many signed petitions while relying solely on volunteer signature gatherers. And the grassroots army that has been mobilized is getting stronger. Win or lose, this will not be their last hurrah.

When reached for comment, Heatlie said “Given this second wind and new life the campaign has, this will rejuvenate the volunteer effort and gives everybody a chance to refocus and charge ahead.”

Giving everybody a chance has never been easier. The recall campaign’s website provides downloadable petitions that can be printed and circulated, as well as an instructional video that provides anyone who wants to circulate petitions all the information they’ll need to get started. As Heatlie put it, “we need people to stop being keyboard warriors and start to be clipboard warriors.”

Will California’s GOP Now Put Resources Into Supporting the Recall?

As a one-party state that pioneered the now national practice of delivering election results only after weeks of counting mailed in and harvested ballots, it’s too soon to know whether on November 3, California’s GOP lost more ground or held the line. With control of only around 25 percent of the seats in the State Legislature, only 7 out of 53 congressional districts, and not a single Republican holding higher state office, they don’t have a lot to lose. Nonetheless, the argument that California’s Republican establishment had to focus on the election was indisputable.

That argument is now gone. It is no longer enough that the California State GOP has formally endorsed the Recall Gavin campaign – they need to either support it with money and infrastructure, from their Sacramento headquarters down to every county GOP organization, or they need to stop sending out millions of emails attacking “King Newsom.”

Choose.

California’s GOP has an opportunity to strike back hard at California’s big tech oligarchy and public sector unions, who have partnered with corrupt Democratic political machines in almost every major American city, and are on the brink of turning America into California. If they are bold enough to seize the moment, they can support this raid into the heart of darkness, and if they do, they will let the nation know that no Democratic politician is safe in their seat, anywhere.

The media in California to-date, and true to form, has virtually ignored the recall campaign despite the impressive progress it has already made, despite events in every city and town, despite a grassroots army that defies precedent. The media also has a choice to make. They can continue their shameful, biased coverage of current events and politics, conforming to predictable pieties and conventions, challenging nothing, or they can start to pay attention, and give the Recall Gavin 2020 movement the attention it deserves.

One wild card that may be decisive is California’s evangelical community, numbering in the millions. Slowly roused to political anger, these Californians have been enraged by Newsom’s policies, as he has pandered to the leftist fringe on social issues, and in these days of COVID-19 has displayed vindictive hypocrisy by condoning all manner of “peaceful protests,” yet closing churches and prosecuting the congregants.

Reached for comment and speaking on background, one influential evangelical explained that “As individuals we need to take responsibility for the future of this state. Look at the close elections we’re dealing with around the country. People need to understand the significance of each individual signature. This is another opportunity for advocates for faith and freedom to get involved.”

Longtime conservative commentator and political activist Stephen Frank, when told about the 120 day extension, said, “This allows the people of California to be heard against the totalitarian dictates of one-man government in the one party state. This allows the volunteers to be single minded instead of being distracted by an election. They can now work full time on correcting the mistake made in November 2018.”

With the deadline to turn in recall petitions now extended to March 17, 2021, the possibility that Gavin Newsom will have to defend his position as governor in a recall election has just become serious. With only incremental help in the form of money and infrastructure, a grassroots army, already battle tested and on the march, can strike a political body blow onto Gavin Newsom, who represents and epitomizes the progressive fraud that has hoodwinked half the nation.

A Newsom recall election in early 2021 can become a referendum on everything the one-party state has done wrong, how it has harmed precisely the people it claims to want to help the most – the low income, aspiring millions who have reliably cast Democratic ballots because they have never been told the truth.

California’s GOP, their donors, and their established operatives statewide, have been given a profound gift. They have a chance to make history. They have a chance to take everything they’ve got to offer, and use it to support millions of disaffected conservatives and defecting Democrats. They have a chance, now, well in advance of the next election cycle, to redefine themselves and realign this state.

    1. I made my signature on the 1st recall attempt. I have trouble signing again. Please help me add my name on the second recall attempt.

  1. Newsom’s idea of the “popular vote” is hundreds of thousands of fake ballots manufactured by the Democrat fraud machine. When the truth finally comes out we will find that he and his fellow traitors were always in the minority.

    1. Thanks for that, CW. I believe that the traitors are in the minority with all my heart and soul. Even now. Or should I say ESPECIALLY now?

    1. Donations are also welcome, by the way. 🙂 Even $5 would be welcome and of course that sort of thing adds up as well as the larger donations. The recall campaign is virtually an all-volunteer effort from what I understand but they may need to use paid signature-gatherers sometimes.

    2. Gavin Newsome is a total asshole, go figure he’s related to one of biggest liar In our country Nancy Pelosie.
      The Democrates have ruined our great state of California and I just can’t wrap my head around the fact there are so many idiots that can vote for higher taxes in so many area’s

      1. I couldn’t agree more. NEWSCUM needs to be impeached. Why are we wasting time with a fifth recall attempt? Have you read his retort trying to defend his actions? AS ALWAYS NOTHING BUT HYPERBOLE AND DEMOCRAT LIES! Democrats are so entrenched in their lies that they wouldn’t know the truth if it spit in their faces! Let me have at it! The whole lot of them: SOBs from the top to the bottom and everywhere in between! I am incensed by their thinking that I’m falling for their b.s. rhetoric and LIES!! Let’s GET HIM OUT (for starters)!!

    1. Many don’t even know about it I’m sure. Many who would eagerly sign if they knew, by the way. So spread the word as much as you can.

  3. Great News !! As one of many who worked hard on the first attempt, I was aware of the request to a fair judge to extend the deadline to collect signatures. As I watched the voter fraud in the General election play out
    In the last few days, I realized how evil and corrupt these Democrats are.
    Now Myself and many others in Solano County, including Michele Guerra of
    Vacaville and Cheryl Johannsen of Dixon are a huge part of the grassroots
    movement of volunteers, can be emboldened as motivated to work harder

  9. Why can’t anyone from anywhere sign the petition? Democrat leaders say no one has to show I.D’s to vote! Democrats are ok if a illegal votes. Is it legit if just anyone signs the petition?
