Blogger’s Note: Please consider this an official endorsement of the Recall Gavin Newsom effort by Right on Daily.
After writing our piece last week about the Gavin Newsom Recall, we’ve gotten several nuggets about the current effort.
#1 Darrell Issa has contributed nothing to the effort other than his name and celebrity for having funded the successful recall of Gray Davis (That netted us a comic book character for governor)
#2 The CAGOP actively opposed this effort and criticized it until:
#3 They started sending out emails fundraising off of the effort (while giving the recall nothing)
#4 It has become apparent that the CAGOP was getting a lot of complaints regarding fundraising off of an effort they did not support.
So why all the sudden did Jessica Patterson and crew engage in the recall? It is the opinion of this blogger that Patterson and crew know they are in a tough fight for her re-election and she needed street cred with the grassroots.
Remember, the “leadership” within the oligarchy of controlled failure have been making a series of idiotic moves. They have kept Jessica sequestered from anyone that supported Steve Frank or Travis Allen, they have been lynching nominees in an effort to reduce their party delegates, ignoring county parties, hijacking the trump effort and taking credit for volunteers recruited WHILE NEVER MENTIONING THE PRESIDENT BY NAME, rigging the party infrastructure to support the Kevin Faulconer Campaign, making candidate decisions in a vacuum and the like, and not doing a thing to register voters.
One insider after another characterized the recall of Gavin Newsom as a distraction and characterized Donald Trump as an albatross. Watch the leadership of the CAGOP Blame Donald Trump for the impending losses of 4-6 legislative seats. Most all of those that I believe are going to lose have publicly shunned the president and one, Jordan Cunningham AD35 has been openly hostile.
Jessica Patterson needs friends. Why not enlist Anne Dunsmore (whose practice has slid to the point that she took on Bill Brough as a client after his previous fundraiser fired him due to his abhorrent history with women and documented campaign finance issues) and Dave Gilliard ( who ironically was blackballed by the CAGOP from getting any party support or work) to see if they can co-opt the grassroots that are gathering thousands of signatures to support Jessica Patterson?
Think it through. The Party has given the recall nothing. Darrell Issa has yet to give. The Party leaders once shunned the recall. The Consultant for the Recall, Dave Gillard is a pariah in their circles and one of his clients Kelly Seyarto AD-67 was allegedly outright threatened over hiring Gilliard to help run his race. Andrew Kotyuk AD-42 was threatened over hiring Nathan Miller by Patterson herself.
Now all the sudden this brood of vipers is going full recall jacket? Nope. It’s a trap. If they are sincere, they will dump $2 Million or more in to the effort. They don’t have it, and if they did, it would have Kevin Faulconer’s name on it.
Note: I have now been told by three people I know to have direct knowledge that the recall does indeed have 500,000+ signatures to turn in. The Recall has only 40 some odd days left. I had written previously that the people running the recall are filing a lawsuit along the lines of two other successful efforts that got 90 day extensions due to Covid.
I hope they succeed, but I believe they are going to get disappointed by the court. The Courts are now almost 100% democrat appointed judges.
It is mission critical for Jeff Randle, Mitch Zak and the other control agents inside the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure to get Jessica Patterson re-elected. Kavin Faulconer is a trump hating RINO like Meg Whitman without her money. He has to have all the institutional support rigged in his favor because unlike Meg Whitman he can’t buy it.
It is time to make peace with Steve Frank as the candidate to oppose Jessica Patterson or else get to work to find someone who is younger and more dynamic to do the job. Your intrepid blogger may have residence in the Nevada Desert, but I know the players and I am warning you what’s coming.
