I’ve read and re-read the article, why the recall? Poor reading on my part or poor writing on the writer?

#2 Gov. Dunleavy is a Republican who won in a landslide, (61.5%). He cut back government spending on the Welfare State and the Liberal/Academic Complex. At which point the leftist media went insane and printed lots about a public backlash... Apparently leftists journalists and the people on the doll are the definition of "public". The State Constitution allows a recall (straight up or down vote) with enough signatures if the Governor is guilt of "neglect of duty, incompetence, or lack of fitness". They found an activist judge that was willing to consider cutting a budget to fit into those categories. It won't work.

A third major U.S. bank has announced it will not support financing for oil and gas projects in the Arctic. Wells Fargo & Co. called out the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on Alaska’s North Slope as an area it will avoid, joining Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase in disclosing that it will not support investments for Arctic oil projects. “Wells Fargo does not directly finance oil and gas projects in the Arctic region, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) – part of a larger 2018 risk-based decision to forego participation in any project-specific transaction in the region,” the bank’s updated policy language says.

On Monday, Alberta's top court declared the federal carbon tax unconstitutional. On Wednesday, the province's justice minister demanded that the federal government remove the levy and reimburse what Albertans have already paid. On Friday, the federal government responded: See you in court. "The Supreme Court will determine if a federal price on carbon pollution is constitutional, a decision that will answer this important question for our country as a whole," Federal Justice Minister David Lametti wrote to Alberta Justice Minister Doug Schweitzer, in a letter obtained by CBC News. "Our government is confident that the price on carbon pollution is within federal jurisdiction," Lametti added.

While he's concerned about ongoing protests along rail tracks in Quebec and Ontario, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said this morning they don't constitute acts of terrorism, as some Conservative MPs are suggesting. On Wednesday, protesters set tires on fire and tossed them onto the track near Belleville, Ont., as CN Rail trains — which often carry flammable chemicals and petrochemical products — rolled by. During this morning's meeting of the House of Commons public safety and national security committee, Conservative MP Doug Shipley asked the minister whether the blockades are being examined as terrorist activity under the Criminal Code.

"Why are you carpet-cleaning the flowerbeds?" is the question most commonly directed at Jonathan Greatrex and his team at the Glamorgan Council parks department. And visitors can be forgiven for their confusion. The Foamstream machines, now in use across the council's parks, do for all the world look like carpet shampooers. But they're actually part of a move to clean up in a different way: by doing away with potentially dangerous weedkillers. Concern about glyphosate - the world's most widely-used weedkiller - has been growing since 2015, when the World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) said it was probably carcinogenic.

The Persian-language news agency HRANA first reported on Mohammadi’s arrest. According to the website Article 18, which seeks to promote religious freedom, “The 21-year-old, who after her conversion now prefers to be known as Mary, was reportedly arrested on Sunday near Azadi Square, where protests were taking place following the Iranian government’s admission of guilt in the downing of a Ukrainian passenger plane.”

This week, mega-bank Goldman Sachs said it would no longer finance new oil exploration in the Arctic as part of a broader move away from fossil fuels. Now, Gov. Mike Dunleavy says he is reconsidering whether Alaska should do business with the bank, and the Alaska Department of Revenue has already booted Goldman from a billion-dollar plan to borrow money to pay oil and gas drillers. “In response to Goldman’s pledge, the governor’s office has directed the review and where possible without financial or progress impairment, the removal of Goldman from business relations with the state,” acting Revenue Commissioner Mike Barnhill wrote in a Friday letter to Goldman’s CEO.

That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

The runner, who admitted they found the smell of meat 'overpowering' when they go jogging at dinnertime, asked that their community show 'empathy for their plant-based neighbors' by closing windows while cooking, and only grilling vegetables on the BBQ.

You would have thought that the vibe at CPAC this year would involve stressing about our November election prospects, but even as the market dipped over the coronavirus scare the general consensus was that whether we face Vermont Stalin or that miserable monied midget, we got this. The common image of conservatives is one of dour pessimism, but that is less due to some inherent doom-mongering on the right than to the decades of failure by Conservative Inc. Under the wise, steady guidance of our establishment betters, all we did was lose, but Donald Trump gave the cons a taste of winning, and they like it.

A federal judge has ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to submit to a deposition by lawyers for the conservative group Judicial Watch over her fateful decision to use of a private email server. Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton's tenure at the State Department. 'Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State's records management obligations,' the judge wrote about the federal open records law.

Iran has been accused of failing to clamp down on coronavirus contamination after alarming videos of worshippers licking a shrine emerged online. Clips shared on social media show people licking the doors and burial mound inside the Fatima Masumeh shrine in Qom, defying token advice by the health ministry. Worshippers in the videos brazenly state they 'don't care what happens', even if they catch or spread the infection which has killed at least 54 in the country. Iran's hardline clerical establishment has refused to shut down Qom despite the holy city suffering the brunt of the outbreak and pilgrims spreading the virus across the Middle East.
