Gavin Newsom, the lily white, urbane, coiffed scion of San Francisco’s posh royalty, is California’s highest-ranking Democrat. He presides over a party that has taken progressive ideals beyond absurdity to the brink of tyranny, a socialist party that openly disparages whiteness and wealth. One would think that the party of Gavin Newsom is bent on destroying everything Gavin Newsom represents. So what’s going on?

Comments:

I’ve lived in California all of my 61 years. This is spot on.

In the late 70's, The Dead Kennedys had a song entitled, "California Uber Alles". Sadly (California native) it is no longer satire.

The author reminds of the time when Arnold Schwarzenegger needed Republican support and the party bigwigs abandoned him. McClintock, still licking his wounds, did what he had always done in California politics. Sit in his all-Republican district and make no alliances. Loyal only to Tom McClintock. He was so insular, I was amazed that he ended up being elected to Congress - but once again, it was a protected district. No chance he would be able to win a general election. The Democrats in California appear to work a lot harder than most of the Republicans. Devin Nunes is our star now. There used to be many more. Maybe good weather and beauty make some voters lazy? There are still 5 million Republicans here and nearly that many No Party Preference. Although the Democrats have more registered voters than the Republicans they do not have a statistical majority. The NPP voters were the key to Schwarzenegger’s being able to remove Gray Davis from the state capitol and keep evil Cruz Bustamanet out of it. But those “undecideds” need something to be excited about… Maybe the current tyranny will get their attention.

FTA: "The problem, of course, was that the government does not operate in a competitive environment." No, the problem was and is that government became part of the "competitive environment" we call "private enterprise." It took 20 years to gain control of the government tax and spend money machine. There are innumerable "XXX-industrial complexes" at work. Pick a "crisis" and you'll find hysteria that drives expansion, public and private, fueling cash flows into various pockets with the "crisis" never-ending and generally worsening. Take one: poverty, crime, education, affordable housing, healthcare, environment, "hate", traffic management, retirement savings, ad nauseum. The USA is always slipping from #1 in military strength, industrial output, STEM graduates... Add a few of your own. This happens because people are largely ill-informed, pressed to conform by media and opinion shapers, surrounded by propaganda, from public service announcements to commercial advertising and mainstream news reporting. Watch your local TV news and there is as much time spent on the latest scare as on the weather. Turn on Oprah, Dr. Oz or any of the daytime talk shows and the scaremongers are everywhere...drink water, cleanse yourself, eat organic...and if you get sick, there must be some lawyer out there with a settlement for some quick cash for both of you. The government is what it has become. And we helped make it that way. Our national wealth is our weakest link.

Fox News co-host Juan Williams vehemently disagreed with the praise for President Trump’s appearance at the March For Life rally, saying his attendance further “divides the country.” The liberal co-host of “The Five” delivered his tone-deaf argument on Friday’s show, criticizing Trump for what many have lauded as a powerful message with his appearance at Friday’s event, making him the first sitting U.S. president to address the March for Life rally in person.

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney (R) said Saturday that it is “very likely” he will be in favor of calling witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump. However, the GOP lawmaker said he will hold off on making his final decision until after Democratic impeachment managers and the president’s defense lawyers conclude their opening arguments."I think it's very likely I'll be in favor of witnesses, but I haven't made a decision finally yet and I won't until the testimony is completed," the Utah Republican said Saturday after the first day of the Trump team’s opening arguments, CNN reported.

Hillary Clinton promised in 2016 that she would make history, and she did. She lost a winnable election where she enjoyed every conceivable advantage over her opponent, including a roughly 2-to-1 edge in campaign spending. Clinton then went on to become the first failed nominee in modern American history who cannot manage to move on. John McCain returned to the Senate after his loss in 2008 to Barack Obama. John Kerry similarly went back to work in the Senate after the 2004 election and later joined Obama's administration. Al Gore still complains about losing in 2000 to George W. Bush,

George Soros, 89, is still on

George Soros is 89 years old, but by gosh, before he dies, he’s going to see to the internal destruction of America. At least that’s how it seems. How else can we listen to his words in Davos, Switzerland, track his funding of American political races and pay attention to what he says about President Donald Trump, capitalism, and the leftist causes he backs and the leftist Open Society Foundations he runs, and come to any other conclusion? In the last few years, Soros has taken to trying to take over local law enforcement agencies by pumping massive amounts of money into candidates he favors in key district attorney races.

Elizabeth Warren wins endorsement of
Des Moines Register, Iowa’s top newspaper

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., won a key endorsement Saturday when Iowa’s largest newspaper announced that it will back her for the Democratic presidential nomination, just days before the state’s caucuses. “The senior U.S. senator from Massachusetts is not the radical some perceive her to be,” the Des Moines Register’s Editorial Board said. “She was a registered Republican until 1996. She is a capitalist.” The Register’s backing is a significant boost for Warren, whom polls suggest trails Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., former Vice President Joe Biden and former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the state.

His wife, a hero of sorts only in the TV series “Suits,” had hightailed it to Canada, leaving Harry Windsor, formerly known as Prince Harry, to deliver a concession speech. Make no mistake—no matter the moola they rake in, Harry and Meghan Markle have been sorely defeated and deflated. Gallantly has Harry tried since to make his subjects believe that it is he, not Meghan Markle—his meddlesome, divisive, American wife—who had attempted, and failed miserably, to outsmart Queen Elizabeth II. But the crass and callous rollout production, lacking in etiquette and contemptuous of royal protocol, fell flat. So deeply silly was the Sussexes’ Instagram statement,
Democrats cry foul over Schiff backlash 19 replies

Democrats are pushing back at GOP backlash over a controversial line in House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) closing statement in Friday night's impeachment trial arguments. Schiff sparked an audible reaction from Republicans when he referenced a CBS News report that cited an anonymous Trump confidant saying GOP senators' heads would be “on a pike” if they opposed President Trump on impeachment. Republicans — including Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine) — quickly distanced themselves, with Collins overheard repeatedly saying "that’s not true" and Murkowski saying Schiff "overreached."

As a very smart young rabbi, a graduate of Columbia University and Yeshiva University, I was quite confident of two things: (i) the inherent goodness of all people, and (ii) my own intelligence. As I subsequently learned in due time, that is the most lethal mix imaginable, a sure-fire path to self-destruction. Because of that mix, I married the wrong person, allowed myself to be induced to make the only two disastrous decisions that changed, altered, and ruined important aspects of my life’s journey, and ended up being cheated out of my first 20 years’ life’s savings. And then in 1990, after 10 successful years

The 27,000-square-foot home is tucked in the city's wealthy Kalorama district near the residences of former President Barack Obama and the Trump-Kushner family.
