    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

    02/10/2018 6:08:26 AM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 46 replies
    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.

    A statewide survey released by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) on Thursday shows Democratic gubernatorial candidates Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom just five points ahead of former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, tightening the race for who will replace soon-to-be termed out Gov. Jerry Brown in 2018.

    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...

    As impeachment talk heats up in Washington, the four Democrats running to be California’s next governor are divided on whether Congress should launch an effort to impeach President Donald Trump. 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...

    Democrats have a new goal: not just to defeat Republican nominee Donald Trump in the November election, but also to “destroy” the movement behind him. The New York Times reports Thursday that Democrats, encouraged by Trump’s struggles to deal with the controversy surrounding Khizr Khan, hope to press their advantage to “squash Mr. Trump’s movement.” The Times cites David Plouffe, an Obama adviser-turned-Silicon Valley lobbyist, urging Democrats to “destroy” Trump and “his kind.” Recently, California’s Lieutenant Governor, Gavin Newsom, made similar remarks, saying that even if Trump won, his campaign marked “newsom beginning of the end for gop” for the...

    On July 19, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted that it is “easier to get a gun than a happy meal in California.” He based this statement on an earlier claim that there are twice as many gun dealers as McDonald’s restaurants in California. However, he overlooked that McDonald’s restaurants are not required to observe a ten-day waiting period on burger or fry purchases; gun sellers are.

    A Democrat-backed measure that would give California the nation’s toughest restrictions on ammunition and allow the seizure of magazines exceeding 10 rounds has qualified for the state ballot. The California Secretary of State’s office announced Thursday that the Safety for All initiative, championed by Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, had gathered the petition signatures necessary for a slot on the Nov. 8 ballot. “Enough massacres, death, tears, and hate – it’s time to take action and save lives,” Mr. Newsom said in the Sacramento Bee. “The Safety for All initiative gives California voters the opportunity to keep guns and ammo...

    California’s Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and state Democratic lawmakers appear to be on a collision course over a new round of gun control measures. Newsom, claiming lawmakers are dragging their feet, is collecting thousands of signatures in pursuit of a gun initiative ballot measure in November. But lawmakers say they’re planning to address these issues via legislation, and the initiative could hurt what they’re doing. Critics also say the proposed California ballot initiative contains a wide variety of restrictive, costly and unreasonable gun and ammunition control measures. The proposed “Safety for All As of 2016” initiative has 600,000 signatures from...

    California's Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is no stranger to controversy. He famously gave out gay marriage licenses during his time as Mayor of San Francisco, even as it flouted state law. His time as Mayor was met with serious economic troubles and increasing numbers of middle class residents leaving the city. However, Newsom used that position to become California's Lt. Governor under Jerry Brown. Now after links to disgraced State Senator Leland Yee-- who was found involved in a gun running organization, and recently convicted Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, Newsom is under increased public scrutiny.

    During the November 20 airing of Real Time with Bill Maher, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) pro-gun control comments were countered by Maher’s observation that being armed during a Paris-style attack would at least give citizens a fighting chance to survive. According to MRC/Newsbusters, Maher stepped in to defend the option of being armed for self-defense after Newsom dismissed the idea of a good guy with a gun having any real success against bad guys with guns.Newsom said, “I just simply, this sort of mythology, the guy with the gun that’s going to come save the day, I mean, so...

    **SNIP** After all, a Senate seat is a plum job anywhere, but especially for Democrats in California, where it’s been decades since any of them lost a reelection bid for statewide office. Whoever takes Boxer’s place can expect to become the state’s senior senator after 2018, when the then-85-year-old Dianne Feinstein is also widely expected to retire. But ambitious Democrats should beware: Their eagerness, even greed, could do in their party’s hold on Boxer’s spot. It has happened before in California, and very recently. The field of potential Democratic candidates for Boxer’s slot is large, possibly going beyond obvious prospects...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who became internationally known for his campaign a year ago to legalize gay marriage, on Monday said he considered wireless Internet access a fundamental right of all citizens. Officials said 24 proposals had been turned into the city to deliver wireless Internet services, ranging from Web search company Google Inc., Cingular, the No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier, to Internet service provider EarthLink. Newsom told a news conference that he was bracing for a battle with telephone and cable interests along with state and federal regulators who he said are looking to...

    SF Mayor Gavin Newsom has declared universal access to wireless Internet to be a "fundamental right of all citizens" and stated that access to the Internet "is a civil rights issue as much as anything else."  This is the same San Francisco government pushing a complete ban of all handguns within city limits.  They are putting it to a referendum and proposition H will be on San Francisco city ballots next month.  If it passes, any possession of a handgun within city limits will be banned.  Everyone but government personnel and security guards will have to surrender their handguns within 90 days. ...

    It was not until Thursday night's debate in Sacramento between Gov. Jerry Brown and his GOP rival Neel Kashkari that I realized what a gift the challenger has given the Republican Party. Up until then, he hadn't impressed me much. Had Assemblyman Tim Donnelly won the runoff, he likely would have delivered some bon mots on illegal immigrants that would have dominated debate coverage and sent the rest of the party into a defensive crouch. If Kashkari had amassed the type of country-sized fortune as 2010 GOP nominee Meg Whitman, he likely would have waged a big-money campaign that would...
