The inevitable end result of our last 56 years

Do you think a careful look at the investment accounts of Congressional Republicans would give a clue what their plan is?

Paul, I think their intent is obvious from the assault on voter rights.  They don' want Black, Native, Hispanic or perceived "foreigner's" to vote.

W:

How did California Republicans manage to get this ridiculous, costly recall measure on a ballot?

     It sounds like another brainchild of one of the Koch-funded "think tanks."

     From what I've read, Newsom could have been deposed with less than 50% of the vote, and Elder could have replaced him with 24%.

      File it under, "minority rule," "the modern GOP war on democracy, etc."

W. It's part of the initiative , referendum and recall elective tools that have always existed in California. Specifically with the recall, someone correct me on this but i believe all someone has to do is get a petition signed by 1% of the eligible voters in the last general election and they can put the Governor up to recall. Which is insane, but what's even more insane is that if the public votes "yay" by any majority for recall, it invited in this case 46 candidates to run against each other where all the winner has to do is win a plurality which could be as little as 2% and he becomes Governor! In this case it was particularly bad for the incumbent party, the Democrats who aren't going to run candidates against Newsome because they believe he's been a good governor, and shouldn't be recalled in the first place..

They're going to change this, probably they are going to need 5% rather than 1% in the future to put the recall on the ballot. But that still doesn't fix a flooding of candidates where a winner could receive in the single digits and become Governor. There should be some kind of runoff, but I assume they created  it this way because they want to save some money on Special elections. In this case, Newsome comes up for re election again in a year!.

Living in California my whole life and specifically on the Monterey Peninsula I can remember two other state political recall events in the last 30 years.

One of governor Grey Davis and the other of California Chief Justice Rose Bird.

Over night, there were tables and chairs set up in front of our post offices with loads of hyperbolic literature portraying Davis and Bird as the worst characters one could imagine.

Not just complete incompetents but with a deeper Rush Limbaugh type cloaked inference of their being extreme left, black coddling or even socialist commie sympathizing liberals  ... real boogie man stuff.

And these booths were staffed by mostly women who looked like they resided in the wealthiest area of Pebble Beach! Well dressed. Well coifed. Well spoken.

I believed these must be members of the local chapter of the Republican Women's club.

What befuddled me was the instant appearance of these well organized / high society staffed, bad boogie man scare promoting set ups. At the time, I wasn't completely unaware of California state political affairs and doings, and I had not heard very much about Bird and Grey Davis being so bad they needed to be thrown out.

And I really felt 90% of other adult Californians felt the same.

Guess, we had to be "educated" as to how bad, dangerous and damaging Bird and Davis really were!

Yet, both of these well financed, super hyped up scare campaigns worked!

Bird and Davis were embarrassingly tossed out on their rear ends!

A lawyer friend of mine once told me that one of the main financiers of the Bird recall effort were insurance corporations. Reason being Rose Bird kept ruling against them in her California Supreme Court cases!

However, the main wag the dog scare tactic message promoted in the Bird recall campaign was that she was ... against the death penalty!

She coddled MURDERERS!

Nothing mentioned about her insurance company defying legal decisions, of course.

When Davis was thrown out and replaced by "The Terminator" I did not know what the majority of voters of California thought he could do that would be so great we would all see that Grey Davis really was a complete boob.

As it turned out, Schwartzi was truly one of the worst governors California ever had!  When he left office, all the economic numbers usually cited in measuring a governor's leadership abilities and achievements were doubly worse than Davis's! Unemployment doubled. Deficit doubled. Crime, traffic, illegal immigration...all worse!

Both the Grey Davis and Rose Bird recall campaigns were shamelessly disingenuous, well financed, false flag sham affairs!

The Republicans are willing to put up hundreds of millions of dollars to finance these scare charades. Dems never do. Our most wealthy are more aggressive this way. 

The Brooks Brother riots in Dade County Florida, the violent Capital building insurrection, and now this latest recall scam in California are other examples of wealthy Republican financed political action extremities in trying to subvert our election process if their candidates lose...imo.

 Interesting theory emerging today about the Haitian refugee "crisis" at the Mexican border.

Was it staged by Trump's political strategist Jason Miller?

We know that nothing riles up Trump's base as effectively as seeing dark skinned people amassing on the Mexican border.

But "how did 15,000 Haitian refugees from Brazil all end up at the same remote border location in Texas at the same time? 400 miles and at least a 7 hour drive from the coast. That's no accident or coincidence."

Conspiracy theories abound, but several center on Trump/GOP political strategist Jason Miller being in Brazil recently."

 

Evidence is piling up: Jason Miller organized a caravan of Haitian migrants from Brazil to create the recent Mexican border stunt

Evidence is piling up that Jason Miller organized a caravan of Haitian migrants from Brazil to create the "border crisis" that the GOP is talking about. Wouldn't it have been easier to just do something about the border issues while they could?

I wasn’t clear - I meant their intentions regarding the debt ceiling

It's not that Trump lost the election, it's that people cast terrible votes and didn't vote for him.

Trump tries to claim vindication after his own audit shows he lost: 'Many votes were terrible, terrible votes!'

by Brad Reed September 24, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-arizona-audit-reaction/

 

“While appearing on the "Real America's Voice" network, Trump said that the final audit results will show that he won the state, even though he really did lose it.

"They found many votes that were terrible, terrible votes!" Trump said. "In other words, they found that they were false votes, phantom votes, whatever you want to call them."”

 

Poor baby.

Matt Braynard is the guy who organized that super duper rally for the January 6th insurrectionists on September 18th.

Hey, there might be something to this!  Look at the 3rd paragraph:  His report is CONCLUVISE.  I think there is a hint in here -CLU-, as in don't have a clue.

I have to say, this puzzled me also.

Haiti is in the Caribbean. Isn't Florida a lot closer than Texas?

Other than the Twitter link at the Democratic Underground (above) and a post at the Daily Kos, nothing has turned up on Google searches (or DuckDuckGo) about Jason Miller and the Haitian refugees.

I'm still wondering how 15,000 Haitians, apparently from Brazil, suddenly ended up on the Rio Grande.

We walked across the bridge from Del Rio a couple of hundred yards into Acuna, took the kids to Mexico.  About 15years ago, no passport needed.  I veered left.  A kindly 40 ish Mexican in a white suit steered us right to the shops, restaurants and bars.  Where I had my only shot ever of Patron.  Too expensive in the states for me and too smoothe, potentially addictive.

Hard to imagine 15,000 Hattians under that bridge.  There was a lot of tall vegetation.

How did they get there???  Hatti to South America?  Who paid for that?  700 miles north to Del Rio, long walk, who fed them?  

Blame it on Mexico?

It was those people out on bond from the Jan. 6 insurrection. They put on blackface and pretended to Haitians, down by the border. Including the confirmed "informant."

Ron,

      Well, you put this one on a tee....

      "If you're down in Acuna, and you ain't up to being alone..."  🤪

       BTW, Dusty Hill, who sang this song, recently passed.
