The effort to recall governor Gavin Newsom has finally come to fruition after more than 1.5 million California residents signed a petition to force a new election.

“A sufficient number of verified recall signatures had previously been reached by recall proponents in April,” announced the Secretary of State’s office. “However, in accordance with California election law, voters were given a 30-day period from April 26 to June 8th to request county officials remove their signatures from recall petitions.”

Of the 1.7 million voter signatures were gathered, only 43 were withdrawn, and now the state has 90 days to set up a special election. The recall will be the second of its kind, the first one was held in 2003, when Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger replaced Democratic Governor Gray Davis.  

Prominent Republican candidates who have thrown their hat in the ring include Major Williams, founder of Major Kicks for Kids, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Olympic champion Caitlyn Jenner, and John Cox, who lost to Newsom in 2018.  

Hours before the recall was announced, a bombshell report revealed that Newsom mismanaged California’s wildfire prevention efforts and deceived the public about it. 

“The investigation found Newsom overstated, by an astounding 690%, the number of acres treated with fuel breaks and prescribed burns in the very forestry projects he said needed to be prioritized to protect the state’s most vulnerable communities,” Scott Rodd wrote about the report. 

“Newsom has claimed that 35 ‘priority projects’ carried out as a result of his executive order resulted in fire prevention work on 90,000 acres. But the state’s own data show the actual number is 11,399,” he concluded. “California’s response has faltered under Newsom.”

Newsom also reportedly slashed Cal Fire’s wildlife prevention budget by $150 million in 2020, then in a total reversal allocated $1 billion towards the cause in his wildly expensive upcoming state budget proposal.  

“After years of incompetence under Gavin Newsom, Californians are ready for change,” Faulconer commented. “This movement – which is powered by Democrats, Republicans, and independents – is about rebuilding our economy, cleaning up our streets, and getting our kids back in school.”

They need to make the coffee, not smell it. If the voters hire someone equally incompetent it’s all for naught.

Commie is CATHOLIC. CA has been CATHOLIC for 50 years. Look south of the USA to see how CATHOLICS do in making nations (and states). Vote accordingly.

HMMMM? Seems I recall a certain President Donald Trump state emphatically that Newsome had mismanaged the wildfire prevention process in California but everyone accused him of being a bully because he wanted to withhold federal money from California because of the mismanagement and deception. Funny how many of Trump’s proclamations are coming to light as being oh so true now. Things like this, and hydroxychloroquine, and masks and Fauci being deceptive and…..

This guy should not only be recalled, he should be imprisoned for fraudulent use of government money!
