California's Gavin Newsom,
now running scared

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 11/2/2019 6:27:12 AM

Impervious as ever to the impact of centrally planned greenie socialism on the reliability of electricity in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom is running scared. He's threatening the Hugo Chavez solution to the new-normal of blackouts in his state, which is to say, nationalizing Pacific Gas & Electric. Nationalization? Boy is that a cop-out. (snip) PG&E has no money to put its electrical wires under the ground after all the "green mandates" the socialists in the California state assembly have foisted on them, forcing them to convert to pricey, unreliable and wire-transmitted solar and wind power instead of efficient, reliable, cheap fossil fuels.

The classic outcome of Socialist planning. They dictate that the sun should stop in its course and when it doesn't they claim they need control of the moon and the stars as well; and while you are at it, give them all your money as well. It's not surprising that things don't work as they delusionally demand. It is surprising with so many recent lessons of failure that anyone believes them. The danger is that there are far too many people (voters) that fall for the idiotic promises of the Socialists/Communists; perhaps because they have already corrupted the education system to the point where many lack the power of critical thinking and are indoctrinated to Socialist thought. You wonder why, when Chief Talking Bull Warren promises Medicare for All, everyone doesn't run away screaming.

I saw in another article a few days ago that PG&E used the approved rate increase several years ago (which was supposed to go for safety upgrades) to give their execs bonuses instead. I'm pro-business (I have an MBA), but that was not the right thing to do. When you are a public utility, you have a duty to the public you are supposed to serve. You don't go before the Public Utilities Commission and claim you need a rate increase to upgrade safety measure and then give out bonuses. Completely unethical. I'm not fan of Gavin Newsome either. So glad I left California years ago.

Newsom is an obnoxious leftist ideologue, incapable of solving any common problem faced by the people of Ca. Settling scores with people you don't like is not a proper function of government. Newsom needs to be recalled.

If Democrats take back the presidency and both houses, (and they will at some juncture) today's California is what our country will become very shortly thereafter. This socialist philosophy MUST be stamped out and destroyed in our country.

Whew! That Jerry Brown feller dodged a bullet. It's up to Governor 'good hair' to solve the problem laid in his lap. Sure, go all out Hugo Chavez Mr. Newsom let the rest of the country see what taxes and big Government is really like. I don't see any Bernie Sanders supporters running to the great state of California for a taste of utopia. The only people arriving in the state are Mexicans for the freebies. This is rich and going to fun to watch Newsom solve this one. All those trees and animals protected by the greenie whackos are all burnt toast.

That was some tough talk, defying the President and declaring California a sanctuary for illegal aliens and giving the homeless a ticket to ride in all of the major cities. What we predicted is happening, the state is going broke as well as becoming unliveable. Now it's burning too. What happened to the Land of Milk and Honey? There will soon be tax cuts, not from austere decisions by their government but by those who still have some money left leaving for a more sane environment. Tech work can easily be done remotely and those big companies that employ their citizens will soon see the light and move. With their severe traffic problems they don't need bullet trains, any train that can move at all will serve the purpose.

Recalling Newsom would be pointless with Democrat super majorities in control of he legislature. Anyone remember Arnold? He couldn't get anything done with the democrats in control of the legislature. California won't be fixed until either the voters revolt, or the state goes into receivership. If it gets that bad, can its statehood be rescinded and made a US territory?

His latest idea is for the utilities to spend “billions” of dollars on their equipment. I wonder where Gavin thinks they would get that money? He makes Barack Obama look smart.

When underbrush builds up and dries out, you have a ready made fire hazard. Yet the environmental crowd insists that the underbrush not be cleared out because it is "natural." Well nature has away of clearing out that underbrush. Heavy underbrush allows a fire to spread rapidly and burn with high intensity because every little twig is surround by air. The high intensity heat from the underbrush is what gets the trees burning. It requires only a spark to set it off. That spark can come from campfires, power lines, or lightening. In Florida, controlled burns are used to clear underbrush before it can build up to dangerous levels. This is done during period when conditions for spreading fires are low. This does not completely eliminate wildfires, but they are no ware as devastating as those in California.

Those still harping on Arnold have no idea what the alternative would have been. Cruz Bustamente. We got rid of Gray Davis. That was the big move. To trade him for Cruz would have been disastrous. Arnold disappointed, but Arnold accomplished two very important things: Davis was gone and Bustamente was never elected governor.

Thanks to the Governor, there are people harassing and attacking PG&E workers. And why not? Newsome made them the bad guys in all of this. He blamed them two years ago, they spent millions trying to improve their system and the fires are at it again. Of course now the culprit is "global Warming". I heard an interview with the Simi Valley police chief as he was asked why did the fire not get too the Regan Library? He said well they do a very good job keeping the trees cleaned up and they even have a herd of goats to keep the grass and weeds from becoming fuel for the fire. But instead of doing something that works, the communists greenies will continue their failed ways of dealing with the problem.

California would be a third-world country if it weren't a state. It has all the makings of one - an ultra-rich class that dictates to the lower classes while exempting themselves from the the very policies they espouse (think of Oprah and her tanker trucks of water for her lawn in defiance of water restrictions, Barbara Streisand and her enormous house and warehouses of junk "memorabilia," and the rich of Malibu trying to keep the common people off the beaches in front of their houses); a shrinking middle class; an underclass of illegals that brought their third world values and habits to their new home; rising crime primarily victimizing the middle class who can't afford private guards and gated communities; "homeless" (aka druggies) making city streets into urban slums; filth diseases like typhus, tuberculosis, scabies, and bedbugs making a comeback; and now rolling blackouts that are more reminiscent of hellholes like Havana and Caracas.

#18 - Let us remember how we got saddled with Swartzenkennedy. The recall of Gray Davis was a statewide revolt of citizens stemming from blatant lies about the amount of the state deficit told while campaigning for reelection, and then immediately after winning admitting that his critics were right. That blatant lie/reversal ignited the fire of righteous indignation. The recall was run by citizen groups with the CA GOP/Uniparty sitting on the sidelines as stunned as the commie Dims. Right out of the box state Senator Tom McClintock was polling 35% in a crowded field. McClintock knew the state budget better than anyone alive and had the reputation as a champion of the taxpayer. The CA GOP/Uniparty was apoplectic. They immediately drafted the ringer-celebrity Arnold who provided a circus distraction away from truly discussing the serious problems. We had a golden opportunity to save our state in 2003 and the CA GOP/Uniparty threw it away. Just like they throw away every win for conservative citizens. It was just another betrayal in a long line of betrayals. Our citizens voted against giving illegals welfare benefits and it was overturned by the courts because we were not defended by our Attorney General. We voted for traditional marriage and it was overturned by the courts. Again, we were not defended by our state government. California has been occupied territory for decades and we were sold out by the Republican Party. Trump is our only hope.

It doesn’t matter how bad GN is. He is a die hard to the core left wing progressive liberal democrat and that in and of itself will guarantee he will remain in office and be re-elected in a cake walk. His goal is to nationalize all energy producing companies. PG&E will be the first dominoe to fall if he has his way. I’ve lived in CA my entire life and at this point I’m ready to sell out and get the heck out of here.

Arnold Schwarzenegger won 48.6% of the votes; Democrat Cruz Bustamante, 31.5. Tom McClintock, 13.4%. Even allowing for those Republicans who voted for McClintock, Arnold won more than the next five candidates combined and won more than the 44% who voted against Gray Davis’s recall. He drew from not only Republican voters - those who didn’t vote for McClintock and some of whom were said to have not voted in a long while) - but also from those who were Decline to State (independent) voters and Dems as well. Because he was moderate, not as far right as McClintock? Not as far left as Bustamante? Whatever Arnold might or might not have done, Gray Davis was far worse - a real crook - and Cruz Bustamante would have been a nightmare.

Best line from GN: “The entire system needs to be reimagined,” Emphasis on imagined. Don't fall for that underground wires ploy. Many neighborhoods already have sub-street wiring but not the mega-kilovolt main transmission lines. The ones on the 200 foot towers that Godzilla knocked over. Difficult to trench, difficult to insulate and difficult to repair. Look at it as another High-Speed Rail system to nowhere.

Just read an interesting article about huge increases for homeowners insurance in CA....from $1,000 per year to $4,000, 5,000 or more. There is also an exodus of insurance companies simply giving up on CA in spite of its huge market. This could get critical and create a catastrophic crisis in the real estate market. You can't get a mortgage without insurance.As a retired insurance agent I am not surprised but rather surprised it hasn't happened sooner. The problem with leftists like Newsome is that their ideology rules over any semblance of common sense. It's why California's problems will never be solved by the progressive/leftist, communist 'leaders' who run the state.

The description of California in reply #22 sounds exactly like Mexico. The rich, light-skinned hispanics ruling the country, in business with the narcos, while all the mixed-race hispanic/indian peons suffer or take off for the good 'ol U.S.A., and turn it in to Mexico. That was the demoncrat plan and they have succeeded so well by importing millions of new voters to give them stuff. Might as well give the state back to Mexico.

Lived there for 66 years. Spent the last 30 years in the Mojave Desert, where there are no wildfires. However, the state, true to its 'blob' nature, was oozing into other important parts of life. California was enacting a new plan to manage groundwater in the desert - setting up to require the landowners who invested in wells and pay to maintain them to meter their wells and pay for the water they're pumping from their own land! We left this year and moved to North Carolina. And don't worry, North Carolinians - we'll vote for the most conservative candidates on the ballot!

Gov. Silver Spoon was born to wealth, privilege and the best of social, political and financial connections (such as the Gettys, the Brown Twins (Willie and Jerry), et al infinitum.). So far, if someone or some thing got in his way, all he's had to do is wave his enormous silver spoon and 'poof', like magic, the obstacle was removed. Now the Big Spoon has taken him the governor's throne. In 2024, he'll be running for POTUS as JFK rev 2.0. Count on it. To date, he has succeeded by any measure you care to use. Going forward, there is only one small problem. He doesn't know what he doesn't know, because he hasn't had to. He doesn't know he is no more than a dull-witted mediocrity, at best. At worst, he matches up well with Chance the Gardener from the movie 'Being There'. Over time this will become obvious to most people. And we'll all have a good laugh.

California will never recover as long as the state is run by the interlocking web of families and environmentalists/socialists. Read the article "Gavin Newsom is keeping it all in the family," by Dan Walters, January 6, 2019, in the Orange County Register. The Browns, Newsoms, Pelosis, Gettys, are all inter-connected (Nancy Pelosi is actually aunt-by-marriage to Gavin Newsom). Victor Davis Hanson has written quite descriptively about what ails California. I'm glad I got to see that beautiful state years ago, when even Los Angeles and San Francisco were safe and clean. A friend couldn't wait to move out of San Francisco a few years back, when they relocated for a job.

When you consider the vast number of people forced to watch CNN as they waited at their gates for delayed airline flights on the busiest travel day of the year, one marked by weather delays in most of the country, this call for harsh derision could affect a lot of Thanksgiving dinners today. Ridicule and scorn do not fit well with the theme of giving thanks for the blessings we receive as Americans, but then again, CNN, in the ratings tank and discredited for its repeated fake news incidents, has less to be thankful for than most Americans, enjoying higher incomes and lower taxes.

Last night's Democratic presidential debate featured a slew of predictable boilerplate from the candidates advocating for abortion. First, Sen. Amy Klobuchar got asked about it, and she stated the usual stuff, and then Sen. Elizabeth Warren got asked a slightly different question by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow about whether there was any room left in the Democratic party for a pro-life Democrat, such as Louisiana's governor John Bel Edwards. Warren was evasive, failing to answer the question directly, but she made it pretty clear there was no room.

Watching Schiff's trumped up inquiry about nothing but a phone call, the transcript of which has been available to the public for many weeks, is like watching The Caine Mutiny (1954) without the drama. The film is about a naval captain whose first officer relieves him of his command when the man demonstrates obvious signs of mental instability. All that is missing from Schiff's on-air mental collapse are the little steel balls that Humphrey Bogart as Captain Queeg fiddled with while on the stand at the court-martial of the mutineers. Queeg was obsessed with missing strawberries. Schiff's impending mental breakdown is demonstrably more obvious, less subtle than Queeg's.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

As Rep. Adam Schiff’s “sentence first, trial later” show trial of President Donald J. Trump reaches a so-called public hearing phase, we find the weaver of fables dictating what witnesses the GOP will be permitted to call based on a set of three qualifying question they must answer in advance. These questions ask, essentially, if the witnesses believe President Trump is guilty of pressuring Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens in exchange for military aid. The GOP, it seems, will not be allowed to call witnesses who have testimony or evidence to the contrary, that there was no pressure and no quid pro quo.

The Chick-fil-A Foundation has come under conservative scrutiny since its decision to stop supporting Christian charities such as the Salvation Army, caving to disingenuous pressure campaigns from far-left activists. The SPLC is most infamous for inspiring an attempted domestic terror attack against the Family Research Council

CNN’s National Affairs Correspondent, Joan Walsh, said she was “shocked” President Trump didn’t sexually assault the hero military dog visiting the White House on Monday. Walsh dedicated a whole Twitter thread to critiquing the body language of both Trump and First Lady Melania Trump as they welcomed Conan, the dog that took down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The president described Conan as the “the ultimate fighter” and awarded her a medal and a plaque for her role in the death al-Baghdadi. Naturally, Trump can’t give a heroic dog a medal without facing scrutiny from the mainstream media. Walsh described the scene as “terrifying” and wrote that

Students and faculty at Washington and Lee University in Lexington city, Virginia, are demanding that the school remove photos of George Washington and Robert E. Lee from their diplomas. “We, the undersigned, call on the administration of Washington and Lee University and President William Dudley to provide students with the option of removing the portraits of namesakes Robert E. Lee and George Washington from their diplomas,” proclaim the law students in their petition. Washington and Lee University diplomas display portraits of both George Washington and Robert E. Lee, given that the school has been named after them. The petition insists that its signees will be satisfied if school administrators simply give students

And to think, I’ve been feeling sheepish these last few months for pointing to her poor polling this past spring and declaring that her candidacy was going nowhere. She rose steadily all summer and into early fall! She led in multiple early states! She was the one member of the top tier whom every pundit agreed was exciting crowds on the trail! Now, suddenly, it looks like her final destination might be [shudder] Kamalaville. This new one from Quinnipiac is “just one poll,” as the data nerds like to say, except … it’s not really “just one poll.” As we’ll see momentarily, Warren has been slipping

"We’ve got a fresh Diet Coke,” the cameraman announced, peering through the lens at President Trump, who was locked in conversation inside the Oval Office. “Beverages were just served.” The White House press corps erupted in groans. It was getting towards an hour since we’d been marched out to the edge of the South Lawn to wait for the president. The cameraman, zooming in on the window, informed us that the other guy was Attorney General William Barr. Outside, the crisp fall dusk was punctured by the metallic roar of a helicopter engine. The soft drinks were a grave portent: they signaled the meeting would stretch on, which it did,

The Drudge Report is still the king of conservative aggregator websites, but its rivals are gaining ground. Five right-tilting upstarts — Whatfinger News, Liberty Daily, Rantingly, NewsAmmo and Gab Trends — increased their average monthly traffic and engagement, as measured by average visit duration and average pages per visit, from September-October 2018 to 2019, according to SimilarWeb, which shared its data with The Washington Times. At the same time, the marketing-intelligence company found traffic to the Drudge Report during that period declined by 15%. From July to October, Drudge dropped from 96 million total visits to 77 million, prompting recent headlines such as True Pundit’s “Drudge Bleeds Out as Conservatives Flee.”

Police officers for the San Francisco Bay Area commuter train system disproportionately target black riders with citations for eating and drinking, according to new data that has renewed concerns about racial profiling. The Bay Area Rapid Transit (Bart) data was released following a viral video showing police handcuffing a 31-year-old black man who was cited for eating a breakfast sandwich on his way to work. The new records show that more than 81% of people who have been stopped for eating and drinking on Bart since 2014 were people of color, and that the vast majority of them were black.

Hunter Biden was suspected of smoking crack inside a strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits — at the same time he held a seat on the board of a controversial Ukrainian natural gas company, The Post has learned. The incident, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, DC, late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Biden, 49, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction that included a crack binge in 2016. Workers at Archibald’s, located about three blocks north of the White House, said Biden was a regular there, with two bartenders and a security worker

Hunter Biden spent several thousand dollars at a Manhattan strip club during a pair of visits—including one that sent a staffer scrambling to buy a sex toy so strippers could use it on him, sources told The Post on Wednesday. Biden—who’s been dogged by a series of strip-club allegations uncovered by The Post this week—was accompanied by a woman both times he went to Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club NYC in Hell’s Kitchen about a year ago, the sources said.(Snip) During one particularly wild night, workers suspected Biden—son of former Vice President Joe Biden, the frontrunner

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Down, but not out, Sen. Kamala D. Harris is counting on some “black girl magic” here in South Carolina to help resurrect her flagging presidential bid. Ms. Harris has raised the stakes by going all-in in Iowa, but she hasn’t forgotten South Carolina, where she has spent the last few days promising to be a warrior for black women who have been showered with praise for the role they play in electing Democrats — only to see their everyday concerns get neglected. “Don’t just thank me, show me your thanks,” Ms. Harris said at a recent campaign

We remember how Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, or the Bronx Evita as my friend Bill Katz calls her, led the campaign to kill an Amazon project in the New York City area. She killed a few thousand jobs, maybe even more. It was a disaster for workers, but Miss Sandy O got another invitation to MSNBC, Well, she is back and she is killing jobs again. Check this out: Last week, Bright Power decided to fire its staff and farm all the work out to subcontractors instead of maintaining their own workforce. The firing occurred just as the workers were following Ocasio-Cortez’s advice to form a union.
