  • “Trump is planning to build more family detention centers – literally prison camps” Gavin Newsom

    No, Jay. No way. News just broke that Trump is planning to build more family detention centers – literally prison camps for children and families – here in California. They'd hold almost 100,000 people. We cannot let him so much as break ground on a single one. Trump and his aides want us to think they're slowing things down, fixing the problem they made – but they're actually ESCALATING their efforts to criminalize immigrants, tear more families apart, and incarcerate them indefinitely, in OUR state. It's hard to stomach the mere idea of it. It's horrifying. Inhuman. Evil. We have...

    Republican businessman John Cox, who stunned the political world last week by placing second in the California primary and securing a spot on the November ballot, said Monday that President Donald Trump will campaign for him in California. The Los Angeles Times reports: Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox said Monday that President Trump would travel to California to campaign for him in his bid to defeat Democrat Gavin Newsom in the November general election. “Gavin Newsom is going to make this race all about President Trump. Well, you know what, I welcome it,” Cox told GOP supporters at a hotel...
  • Unpopular gas tax could be issue in California governor's race

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) — San Diego businessman Jon Cox may be the underdog in the governor’s race, but Republicans believe Democratic opponent and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is vulnerable because of his support for an unpopular tax. If there’s one issue that resonates with Republicans, it’s the repeal of the gas tax in California. On Wednesday, Cox made a point of blaming Newsom for the 12-cent hike at the pumps -- even though Newsom, as lieutenant governor, was not involved in the legislative vote. “He wants to defend the gas tax,” Cox said. “I'm leading the effort to repeal the...
  • Gavin Newsom and John Cox advance to November election in California's governor's race

    CNN projected Republican John Cox will finish in the top two, and advance to the general election in the California governor’s race. Cox, a San Diego businessman, was endorsed by President Trump. Republicans feared they could be shut out of the governor’s race in November, which could have depressed GOP voter turnout and adversely affected the party's congressional candidates. Former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was attempting a political comeback in the race, but will fall short of making the general election.

Gavin Newsom after the June 5 primary, according to a new poll. The Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies has Newsom at 33 percent of likely voters and Cox at 20 percent, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    There are many tools available to express political dissent: Chants, signs, strikes, songs of protest. Also, dog poop. On Wednesday, would-be Governor Gavin Newsom's wife decided to back up her anti-Trump talk with action: The act of picking up her dog's poop with a picture of the president's face. Jen Siebel Newsom and Max, California's prospective next First Dog, drew attention online Wednesday when Siebel Newsom tweeted pictures of a dog poop bag emblazoned with the aforementioned Trump picture.

    Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the leading Democrat in the California gubernatorial race, touted gun control as he addressed hundreds of protesters in Santa Ana on Saturday. The protesters had gathered to participate in nationwide “#MarchForLife” protests calling for stricter gun control laws following the tragic school shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school that left 17 dead last month. “We changed the trajectory of the debate, not just in this state but all across the rest of the country,” Newsom said of Proposition 63, a gun control initiative that requires background checks for ammunition and was approved in 2016. “Gun...

    The Federalist ^ | 03/07/2018 | Helen Raliegh
    A former employee of YouTube (a subsidiary of Alphabet, parent of Google) alleged in a recently filed lawsuit that YouTube is discriminating against white and Asian men. “YouTube last year stopped hiring white and Asian males for technical positions because they didn’t help the world’s largest video site achieve its goals for improving diversity,” the suit alleges. Liberal discrimination against white men is nothing new, but many people are caught by surprise to see such explicit discrimination against Asian males in the name of diversity from one of the most progressive companies in one of the most liberal zip codes....

    The California Democratic Party will not endorse Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s re-election bid this year, with delegates at the party’s annual convention giving the majority of votes to her top primary challenger, progressive State Sen. Kevin de Leon. De Leon got 54 percent of the vote, compared to 37 percent for the more moderate Feinstein, according to results released Sunday. But neither Democrat will receive the state party endorsement because they failed to reach the 60 percent threshold. The vote totals were not a surprise, considering the state party’s liberal leaning. And Feinstein leads de Leon by 29 percentage points in...

    LA Times ^ | Feb. 25, 2017 | Seema Mehta and Phil Willon
    The California Democratic Party decided not to endorse in the U.S. Senate contest on Saturday, an embarrassing rebuke of veteran Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein, who has represented California in the Senate for a quarter-century, is facing an insurgent bid by a fellow Democrat, state Senate leader Kevin de León. He earned nearly 500 more votes than the senator, who was first elected in 1992. De León has cultivated relationships with the party’s delegates. He still faces a significant challenge in trying to topple Feinstein, who trounces De León in all public polling and fund-raising. The party also did not endorse...

    The Public Policy Institute of California poll revealed a tight race for governor between Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa with nary a Republican in sight. Yet, in the end it may be Republican voters who could choose the next governor because of California’s top two primary system. With the June primary four months away, Newsom tops the PPIC poll with 23% support from likely voters with Villaraigosa closing in at 21%. Third position also belongs to a Democrat with state Treasurer John Chiang claiming 9% just ahead of the first Republican in the poll,...
  • THE DEMOCRATS NEXT 'PRETTY BOY' POTUS

    JFK, Obama, and overweight Bubba. They win with a younger pretty boy who has the gift of gab. It gives them just enough to get past those who do not look beyond appearances. Jimmy Carter was a failure like LBJ and Dukakis the technocrat. On paper they don't win. Who is the next one? Gavin Newsom. 'Legalized' gay weddings as SF mayor for the Profile in Courage types. Republicans can nip him in the bud by voting for the Mexican LA mayor. Otherwise it's back to the future.

    Late last week, U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., tweeted that the NRA is increasingly becoming a domestic security threat. Her exact words: I'm just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can't ignore that. Rice’s proclamation does two things: First, it makes her but the latest in a long line of liberal politicians who have decided to attack the NRA instead of dealing with examples of leftist-inspired violence uncovered by the NRA. Secondly, it insults the whole of NRA's membership, as the NRA is not an abstraction but a...

    With sexual harassment in the news in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, is it really a good time to hold a political fundraiser for someone who used his position of power to gain sexual advantage from the wife of someone who once ran his political campaign? Movie star Reese Witherspoon held a political fundraiser on Friday at her home for the gubernatorial campaign of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, who admitted to an affair in 2007 with the wife of the campaign manager for his election as San Francisco mayor. Witherspoon recently complained about a sexual assault (see...
  • San Francisco Fooled into Voting for $5.8 Billion Pension Spike

    A new San Francisco civil grand jury report blames $5.8 billion in unfunded county public pension liabilities on voters not realizing that they were voting for two pension spikes. Despite being Ground Zero for social justice warrior elites, San Franciscans always assumed they would never be ravaged by unions and crony liberal politicians spiking unfunded pensions, because the city’s century-old county charter required a public vote for any enhancement of a government benefit. But when the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued Statements 67 and 68, which required greater public pension liability disclosures by mid-2015, auditors calculated that the national...

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Delaine Eastin, the former state superintendent of public instruction, said in response to inquiries from the Bay Area News Group that they believed Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.

    California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom said in an interview with ‘The Golden State Podcast’ that he would use specific environmental laws in the state to stop the border wall from being built, at least in southern California. . . . “I could wait about a year and a half until we finish our negotiations with Mexico, which will start immediately after we get into office,” Trump said as Breitbart News reported earlier. “But I don’t want to wait. Mike Pence is leading an effort to get final approvals through various agencies and through Congress for the wall to begin.” “I...

And Maher's latest bit of unintentional humor comes in the form of a presidential endorsement for 2020.
