” … enough signatures to potentially trigger special election.” foxnews


"Organizers of a campaign to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom say they have obtained the required number of signatures to trigger a special election.

The secretary of state's office will need to process the signatures and determine if they are valid.

Randy Economy, the senior adviser and official media spokesman for Recall Gavin 2020, told Fox News on Saturday that the campaign has received around 1,509,000 signatures — more than the required amount. Organizers said they expect to have 1.6 million signatures by Sunday."  foxnews


Been busy all day learning to do WordPress.  The devotees have developed a whole vocabulary and language of their own  The Iceland blog will run on WordPress.

I would love to see Newsom AND Cuomo go down.  Be still my heart.  pl

    Entonces, Pat, te cambias?
    No sabía nada…y paso por aquí casi todos los días…
    ES sólo para miembros del comité?
    Cómo se llamará el nuevo blog, si ouede saberse?

    Worst thing to happen are the media echo chamber claiming the recall supporters now have “enough signatures”.
    No, they need a lot more because the signatures have to be “adjudicated” by you know who – the California deep state employees using their 46% inaccurate signature verification Brand X machines..
    AG office which runs this state recall process, remains as crooked at its former office holder – Heels Up Harris. It is not over, until it is over and at least 1.5 million signatures are vetted and verified. Which means we still need 1.9 million.
    Keep “fighting”. Peacefully and patriotically.

    There was a recall petition for the Oregon Governor that was tanked. I wouldn’t be surprised if they bury this one too. Once you cross the Rubicon of thinking the ends justify the means, any means become justified. Hell once you’ve spiked a Presidential election a governor’s race is pocket change.

    It looks like Cuomo’s career has outlived its usefulness to the Party. Newsome dug his own political grave. Meanwhile in the Senate the selectively edited evidence fails to win a conviction. In GOP news Pence-Hailey 2024. (Democrat lite.) Are these people really that stupid?

    Escarlata et al
    The new blog will remove my operation from the reach of big tech in the US. It will probably be called “turcopolier” and will be open to all for comments with moderation as always.

  6. Bill H says:

    Yes. Marginally less stupid than Dems, but yes.

    Problem is:
    Who replaces these wastes of oxygen?
    More of the same.
    Politics attracts some of the worst people around.
    Dishonest, shallow mediocrities.

    It has come to this; the Committee of Correspondence in semiexile in Iceland, the land of ice and fire. It is what needs to be done, evidently. I hope that you can preserve your archives as well, but escaping to fight another day would be a major victory.
    In other news of the right-minded prudently looking to the exits (?), I just learned of this:
    A new turn on Horace Greeley’s words…Go North, young man.

    We’ve done this before here in Cali.
    Got rid of Gray Davis.
    Ended up with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
    He wasn’t an upgrade.
    But my car tax went down!

    Looking forward to it. I moved off of blogger a couple of years ago and didn’t look back;
    Dreamwidth is full of hippie weirdos and almost no one drops by (which suits me fine), but it seems to work well. I write for my pleasure, not for others. I build everything is a word processor and then just cut and past into a typepad interface (Dreamwidth branched off of typepad back in ’08). Bada big…done.
    Everyone here is welcome to drop by, not much to see there.
    Gotta get away from the big boys, the small not-very-corporate providers are the way to go.
    Keep going Colonel. Non illegitimi carborundum

    It appears I am banned by WordPress so it I don’t make the pending transition, my deepest appreciation for the time well spent among the many keen minds and provocative commenting allowed on this remarkable forum. Best wishes to all. Deap

    Calif Gov Gray Davis recall that got us Arnold Schwarzenegger out of about 90 candidates who put their hat in the ring.
    Arnold promised “he would blow up the little boxes” of special interests, but did not mention them by name. After he won on that promise, he put four propositions on the ballot that would start “blowing up the little boxes” including eliminating K-12 teacher tenure. As well as other public sector union reform.
    Fatal error – he touched the third rail of California politics – taking on the powerful teachers unions (CTA). Voters knew the public sector unions were the problem which is they they recalled Davis and installed RINO Arnold.
    So in fact it was the voters who let him down, once he got in office to make good on his promises after the teachers unions did a full frontal assault against all the four reform ballot propositions. And they all failed.
    Arnold took a look at the lay of the land after that unexpected defeat, decided it was more fun to go along with the government unions so he sold out the future of the state after that and it slipped into the one-party super-majority hell that it is today. So he failed, but the voters also failed – we got a new governor, but refused to act on it. The issues being more obscure to the voters than the personalities.
    And no one dares take on the teachers unions in this state and lives to tell about it. Which will be the reality if Newsom is recalled. Big difference this time is so many parents now know the teachers unions are not their friends. That is the wild card this time.
    Nor is there any name recognition “star” to make the choice for a new governor easy for voters. Plus the teachers unions took these past 20 years to embed themselves so deeply into the system, they cannot be dislodged no matter who gets elected.
    How mad are parents and how fast will Newsom now scramble to re-open schools and end the really draconian lockdown terms and erratic games playing? He is bending now a lot — you know, “following the science” which really means staying one step ahead of the growing backlash.
    Last election did see some pushback against the entrenched status quo – teachers unions and SEIU ballot proposition to raise taxes failed.
    I often wonder what this state would have been like if those original Schwarzenegger ballot propositions had passed in 2000. Probably all over-turned by the courts.
    One big worry I had about Trump was he would do a Schwarzenegger on us once he got a whiff of Democrat (union) push back. Trump did not blink. I truly thank him for that.
    He poked a stick at the dragon and lost the first battle, but more people woke up to what has slowing been eroding our government over the past several decades – we sold it out to powers that now control us. And it was not a foreign enemy, it was out own tax dollar funded deep state.
    Next four years will be very interesting – at least the deeper issues now have a face and name, if not yet the solution or person to carry on the fundamental realignment that takes power back to the owners of this government.
    The lockdowns, the bailout price tag, and especially the teacher union abuse of too many blue state school systems was the wake-up call. All early “covid” advantage accrued to the Democrats; but the blame is now shifting from we are all gonna die to maybe this did turn out to be a huge over-wrought hoax after all.
    We learned yet again, big government is not the answer. It has again been shown to the problem. And the biggest problem is what big government has done to our public schools. No political bandaid will ever cure this now.
    People know the difference now between teachers (good) and the teachers unions (bad). Can’t put that genie back in the bottle.

    Wordpress is also open source, and can be installed and hosted by anyone. As long as the site you want is not part of wordpress.com, they don’t have anything to say about who is using or visiting a wordpress site.

    you won’t be banned from my site in Iceland.

    I hope you are able to make the transition to the new site. In any event, thank you for you contributions. Blessings.

    Having spent five years in LA, and as much as it pained me to move because southern California, as well as much of the rest of the state, are some of the most beautiful places on earth, I can say with absolute certainty that the voters in California are getting what they deserve, good and hard. No one pulled the wool over their eyes, no one promised one thing and did another. All these politicians are wide open about their radicalism, and the majority of voters there ask for it, nay they demand it.
    I have family who still live there, and while they bitch and moan about the deterioration of the place, they still cast the same votes they always have. You can fix a lot of problems with the right voting habits. But you can’t fix stupid. And there is an unfathomable amount of stupid in that state. I feel for the folks in the central valley and the far north (51st state of Jefferson). They are being dragged to their doom by the abject idiocy of the coasties.

    My God, an Iceland blog. Just like The Saker had to do. What has the US become?
    Best wishes on its success.

    I wonder if this recall will be a mail-in affair too? 😉
