Yes the Democrats have a Super Majority, but for those that are willing to see this thing through, it is important to make a statement- particularly a statement to the rest of the country and the empty White House in DC. Change starts here by stopping this horrible pretender and beneficiary of White Privilege. We cant afford to do this anymore and it is going to get worse the longer this guy is allowed to remain and behave irresponsibly.

Larry Elder is a great choice. It's better that he isn't a politician. Just because Newsom played dress-up as a politician all those years doesn't make him a leader. Get out and vote YES. Get out and vote for Elder. Besides, these Democrats have been lecturing us on equity, equality, racism, inclusiveness, reparations, and more, well here is a good time to actually put that into practice by voting for Mr. Elder.

And forget those campaign commercials about Larry Elder and his girlfriend. Who knows if that is true or just the Democrats dirty little lies. But do remember this: Newsom had at least two affairs during two marriages while in political positions in this state. That says a lot.

"Governors don't need any input from the Legislature to appoint judges. Newsom alluded to how drastically a new Republican governor could shape California courts in a recent Zoom call with supporters: "I think about my kids and their future, the damage that a Republican can do (with) judicial appointments unfettered by the Legislature.""

Some of us (not Newsom) think about the damage of judicial appointments being made by so called "progressive" governors that are rubber stamped by a left wing legislature. The kind of judges who worship big government, ignore the Constitution, and make up their own versions of "rights" (employment, housing, income, wealth, racial preferences, etc.) - for the "collective good" and "social justice" reasons.
