Reparations for Black Californians could top $800 billion
"It could cost California more than $800 billion in reparations to compensate black residents, according to economists, advising the state. Those potential reparations for harm caused by policing and housing discrimination are more than 2.5 times California's annual budget. The state reparations task force will review the numbers at a meeting today. California governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation creating the panel in 2020. It has until July 1st to submit recommendations on how the state can atone for its role in perpetuating damage done by slavery. Ultimately, it's up to lawmakers to decide which if any reparations to approve, opponents say California taxpayers are not responsible for slavery. I'm Julie Walker

New California gas price law another defeat for oil industry
"California governor Gavin Newsom has signed a new law that could penalize oil companies for profiting too much. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. The law comes as a response to the gasoline price spike last summer that saw record high pump prices, while oil companies made enormous profit, though the industry couldn't stop the legislation, its presence could be felt in the final version. The governor initially called for a new tax on oil company profits, but revised that to a penalty if profits passed a certain threshold in the final version the decision is punted to a 5 person panel appointed by the governor with the consent of the state Senate, the bill also creates a new state agency with the power to monitor petroleum markets, including requiring oil companies to disclose lots of data about their pricing. It's the latest in a string of legislative defeats for the oil industry, California was once one of the leading oil producers in the United States. Today, a separate California law requires the state to be carbon neutral by 2045. California also plans to ban the sale of most new gas powered cars by 2035. I'm Ben Thomas

California lawmakers OK potential fines for high gas prices
"California lawmakers are breaking new ground with a new law that would punish fuel companies for price gouging at the pump. This state assemblies passed a bill that will empower state regulators to punish oil companies if they try to profit from price spikes. California is always at higher prices than the rest of the country. Because of fuel regulations, but state officials say it doesn't explain why last summer. The cost of a gallon was $6 and 44 cents. More than two and a half dollars higher than the national average. Now a new agency will monitor and investigate the petroleum market and be able to subpoena oil company executives for information and determine if there should be a penalty for excessive profits. Governor Gavin Newsom is applauding the measure, which he helped push through the legislature. I'm Jackie Quinn

California ends some water limits after storms ease drought
"California is ending some of its restrictions on water use. After three years of little rain or snow, California has been hit with about 12 powerful storms since December, governor Gavin Newsom is lowering the number of water use restrictions from 81 to 33. We're eliminating that 15% voluntary requirement or voluntary conservation target. The U.S. drought monitor says most of California is no longer in a drought. Does the governor think the drought is over? Well, I want to affirm your instinct that it should be. It feels like it is. It is and continues to be complicated. The governors is water shortages remain in the klamath river base and along the Oregon border and in Southern California near the struggling Colorado River. I'm Ed Donahue

Liberal Takeover: My Chat With Dave Rubin
"I'm not sure he gets another four years at this point. If he does not run again, who are they going to put up? I mean, have they got a bench that's even worth looking at? I think Kamala Harris would be worse if you can imagine worse for the Democrats than Hillary Clinton. And who else am Gavin Newsom, his track record in California would scare the heck out of any other normal American. I don't know who they got. Well, it's interesting because one of the things I've been talking about on the show right now is that the bench that's starting to coalesce on the Republican side is pretty solid. You know, whether you like all these people are not the idea of Trump, desantis, Vivek Rama Swami, Nikki Haley, Mike Pompeo. These are interesting qualified for various reasons people. Now, someone that's on the left may hate all of them, but there's a track record for these people, all of them. The people on the left right now, you're right. I mean, Kamala Harris was polling basically at zero in her own party when she got out when she was originally running against Joe Biden, you know, a couple of years ago. So that's one thing. But the other thing is they have almost nobody. I mean, are you going to put Pete up there? He's highly unqualified even to be transportation secretary. It was a diversity hire. They basically admitted it. We want the first gay transportation secretary. I don't know what your sexuality has to do with your ability to figure out which way roads are supposed to go, but okay, fine. They don't have much and the fact that, you know, most of us seem to think it would be going towards Gavin Newsom is so insane. And I sort of think so too, but it just shows you what is going on on that side of the aisle.

Gavin Newsom Vacations While California Citizens Suffer
"Okay, Jennifer, you were telling us about the 21 people that were stuck in a big bear, I believe, I believe it was. Homeboy Gavin Newsom decided to take a vacation, people were stuck literally with their lives threatened essentially. They didn't have the proper equipment to dig themselves out. Gavin Newsom goes on a vacay, but you were telling us about helicopters. Remind us of what you were saying right before the break. Right. So there's a volunteer organization called Cal dart, and they run rescue missions when there's natural disasters. They've been involved with the state for decades. So it's not just like some random group of pilots that nobody knew, right? So they know how to operate in these conditions. And they were trying to bring medicine and food and things that to the mountain, and they were denied 6 flights on one day where it was clear were denied and then two more days went by with bad weather with people stuck. There was one man who couldn't get down the mountain for his dialysis treatment because all these people were stuck for 7 days while it was snowing. So by the time it stopped knowing they'd already been stuck a week. And so this guy was already kind of getting in bad shape. He couldn't get down there. And then they tried to send a medical vehicle up to get him a medical transport. They wouldn't let the transport up the mountain because the guy didn't live there. The transport driver.

What's Wrong With Gavin Newsom?
"Gavin Newsom is an absolute disaster when it comes to California. I was sitting there thinking, listen, Gavin Newsom is going to challenge Biden. He's going to be the guy most likely, you know, God forbid of Michelle Obama or somebody pops up on the scene, but I don't really foresee that leaving all of her income and all that kind of stuff behind. Is Gavin Newsom still looking towards The White House? It's really seems hard to fathom. Given how disastrous he is, but maybe people don't understand how disastrous this guy has been. I think they don't. And the press just completely plays along with it. And sadly, even our conservative press over the last month or so, I was basically screaming my head off about something happening here in California. We all know he took off to Mexico when we had these snowstorms about what God ignored was that there was this mountain community outside of Los Angeles, big bear Lake arrowhead area San Bernardino mountains, 21 days these people were snowed in under 12 feet of snow. They normally get maybe 6 feet in a winter. So they have some equipment, but not for 12 feet that fall within 7 days. And people were snowed in. Even when they got the main roads, plowed up there, but then within the communities they couldn't get around. I talked to people who were trying to do relief flights out there like helicopter flights of supplies because grocery stores roofs valid so they couldn't get the supplies from there. And the sheriff wouldn't let them land because it was a disaster zone and they weren't government helicopters, but the government wasn't doing anything. Why? Because San Bernardino county voted to study seceding from California and didn't forget it.

Is This Going to Backfire?
"Is this going to backfire? That is the opening question. I want to ask you, I'm hearing that for quite some time. And I think people mean well when they say that, but for the last couple of years, ever since Biden was implemented as president of the United States, I have been hearing well, Charlie, this is going to backfire. The trillions dollars of spending, this will backfire the open border. That is going to backfire. The environmental fanaticism, this is going to backfire. The rating on Mar-a-Lago, this is going to backfire. The spying on moms and dads, school boards, that's going to backfire. And I wonder, has it will it? Now, I'm not trying to be too cynical. I'm not trying to discount this too much. But I do wonder, why is it that we immediately gravitate towards that talking point? For a while we've been hearing, well, this is the year of the boomerang, things are going to come around back to normal. And I think it's very tempting to say that because you want to believe the American people are always going to course correct. And we've seen some evidence of it. We've seen lightfoot removed. We've seen the district attorney of San Francisco removed, but generally, where was the backfire against the COVID lockdowns? Who was held accountable politically for that was Gretchen Whitmer, held accountable for locking down her state, was JB pritzker, held accountable for locking down Illinois, was Gavin Newsom, held accountable. The answer is sadly, no. And that's not to say that people can never be held accountable, and there is not an equal and opposite reaction bubbling up. But what I am saying is we have to resist the talking point that just because something unjust happens, there will be a guarantee of a political backlash.

I mean, it was a Money Heist is what it was, but all of these people want to virtue signal. You have to keep in mind that there are leaders, right? They're the people that will be the leaders, the little corrupt elites at the top at the top of the totem pole. The Gavin Newsom is the Joe Biden of the world. There's always going to be the useful idiots like an SB bank who double down on what was it? Was it? They doubled down on it says here had to have forgotten man.

These foods were straight up woke and they were cricket as all get out as well, but this is all about creating a new morality, taking you away from government are God and bringing you to government. And here's what they want. They create these device of issues, CRT, DEI.

And so what these people start believing is, okay, they've got my back on this issue, so if they tell us that we should nationalize the banks, they're probably right there too.

California to overhaul San Quentin prison, emphasizing rehab
"California governor Gavin Newsom is set to visit San Quentin State Prison Friday to detail overhaul plans that will put a new emphasis on rehabilitation. I'm Ben Thomas with a look at what's in the works, San Quentin sits on San Francisco Bay, housing the highest number of prisoners on death row in the country. But no one has been put to death there since 2006. The governor announced a moratorium on executions in 2019 and dismantled the prison's gas chamber. Still nearly 700 prisoners remain on death row today last year, Newsom announced plans to begin transferring those inmates to other prisons, saying Quentin is to be transformed into a site where inmates can be rehabilitated and received job training before returning to society. It's to be renamed the San Quentin rehabilitation center, Newsom's aim to break the cycles of crime and create a new model for safety and justice. I'm Ben Thomas

Amber Athey: Biden Admin Is Nationalizing the Banking System
"Nationalizing of the banking system this week It's only the biggest story I've seen since the financial crisis and the Great Recession And although yeah it's on the news no doubt I'm actually surprised how many people even in our space the conservative content space I haven't seen Biden effectively nationalize the banks this week He said listen if I declare your bank systemically important we're going to pay out the depositors and just take over and the story isn't really as big as you get my point I'm probably not saying about we're not really making a big deal out of this like I think we should be Yeah I think you're right And maybe the topic is too confusing for people who maybe don't have financial backgrounds but it is hugely important I mean this is something that affects every single person who has money in a bank because what the Biden administration has essentially said is that we're going to arbitrarily ignore whatever the FDIC insurance limits are We're going to ignore whatever regulations we've put in place so long as we think that the banks is worthy of protection where the venture capitalists who are investing in it are worthy of protection And it's come out that Gavin Newsom the California governor who was praising Biden for their decision to do this bailout without telling people that he had private wineries that he owns as some of the bank's clients So he was directly benefiting from making sure that his assets were secure and I'd imagine that there are a lot of other politicians and lobbyists who need to be looked into to see what they stood to benefit from this complete rejection of every banking system rule that we've put into place over the past few decades

Well, he might end up testifying for a grand jury as well if that's correct.

And now, this is a crazy scheme, and we don't at this stage after get into the merits of it reparations doesn't work on so many levels intellectually, but see the Newsom doesn't care. And the task force doesn't care, because this is a matter of trying to implement racial politics. The idea is let's try to buy off the black vote and then we'll turn to the Latino vote, and this is how Democrats operate. It's not based upon is this something that's meritorious as a deserve. Can you really show that these descendants of slavery would be? I mean, when you normally make a case for reparations, you have to show that but for the offense. But for the offense, these people would all be worse off.

The Fall of California
"I want to talk about the, well, a little bit, the end of California, the fall of California, and it is a little bit it's an ominous topic because the fall of California could be a precursor to the fall of America. A California is America's most beautiful state. It has been for quite a long time, America's richest state, of course, there are other wealthy state New York access, but California has been number one. It has huge and important industries that are distinctive of California. We think most obviously of Hollywood, but California now has also been the center really since the silicon revolution of high-tech. If you go down to Southern California, the San Diego area BioTech, let's not forget agriculture, all the oranges and avocados that are grown in California. So this is a rich, beautiful state. And it's being ruined. And it's being ruined by a man who actually wants to be president. So if you want to know how can the California model or as Debbie calls it the callous wella model, California going the way of Venezuela, how can that model be exported to the whole country? Well, it would be exported if Gavin Newsom becomes president. Which he very much wants to be. And the Democrats are pending a lot of hope in this guy.

How the Left Covers for Criminals
"These policies that sound cute to mindless non critically thinking people are getting people hurt, you don't need to broadcast to the entire state of Washington that we would no longer pursue if you're driving over a 100 mph. That can be a police intern. You know, we never put it out as a memo when I was on the Tucson police department. But we didn't pursue people for certain crimes in the city limits. If you're outside city limits, man, your butt is ours. But in the city limits, if you haven't committed an act of violence against another person, meaning a felony, crime gets another person that was violent if it was just property damage that was felonious, then we wouldn't chase you. But the criminals didn't know that. They thought we were chasing any day of the week all the time. But when they get woken, they start doing this fake transparency stuff, they get people killed. If a person knew that the police officer would pursue them, they probably wouldn't be driving a 110 mph, 111 mph. And if the police can't pursue them, they'll be able to stop and pit maneuver them and prevent them from killing people.

So just give our listeners a quick refresher on him like, where do you come from? What offices has he held? All that stuff. So Newsom really grew up in two worlds, if you will, in the San Francisco Bay Area, dividing his time between life with his single mom who worked three jobs to scratch that living. And then with his dad, who was the state appellate court judge with deep roots in San Francisco's democratic establishment who's best friend happened to be the oil air and billionaire Gordon Getty and to get a connection is significant. It helps set Gavin Newsom up in business. We're talking about an upscale chain of wine stores, wineries, restaurants, nightclubs hotels that have made him quite a wealthy man. So Newsom got his start in politics in 1996 when then San Francisco mayor Willie Brown appointed him to the parking and traffic commission. The next year brow appointed Newsom to the San Francisco board of supervisors, which is San Francisco's city county. So that's the equivalent of being on the city council and more supervisors if you will. Serve three terms there before becoming mayor and then got reelected mayor four years later. A lot of people won't remember this because why should you? He ran for governor, not very successfully against Jerry Brown, who ended up winning, dropped out of that race, ran for lieutenant governor, got elected, got reelected as lieutenant governor in 2014. And then, of course, he was elected governor in 2018 winning 62 percent of the vote, which happens to be the exact same percentage he received in beating back the attempted recall, which to my mind was a huge waste of 200 plus $1 million, essentially to rerun an election that he won the first time. Yeah, and speaking of that recall, Newsom obviously trounced it, destroyed it. But did the recall change him in any way? Well, what I think it did was I think it emboldened him and I think it cut him loose. I mean, he doesn't really have a reelection campaign that he needs to tend to, which frees him up to troll Ron DeSantis and troll Greg Abbott and make a national name for himself. I mean, the fact that we effectively had a governor's race with the recall last year means we don't have much of a race this year. Yeah, and it seems like ever since the recall happened, he's been trying to govern more for the whole United States or at least address huge contentious issues like whenever Newsom holds a press conference announcing a new bill, he always seems to say, California is leading the nation. Yeah, I think some of that is just the fact that, you know, the governor of California is a really, really big deal, and it's a really big job and it's a very, very large platform. And I think Gavin Newsom has been capitalizing on that. And also, you know, we do see sort of this, I wouldn't call it an experiment, but it is a side by side contrast, two very different styles of governing, two very different approaches. And Texas and Florida are the embodiment of that more conservative vision of governance and California is the exemplar of a more left liberal way of governing. And Gavin Newsom has been very eager to make that contrast because I think he feels that it's not only been successful and we could debate whether that's true or not. But from his perspective, successful in California. And I think the direction the country is headed as it becomes more diverse. So I think Gavin Newsom will tell you that he thinks that he's shown a successful model in California. And he wants to see that go national. Yeah, and one of the ways he's doing it is by, you know, getting these big national topics and saying like, this is a fashion of liberalism and we're going to not only pass groundbreaking initiatives and bills. We're also going to trash talk the people who aren't doing it. So one of the big issues, of course, is abortion. What sort of policies has he put forward? Well, he of course is supporting proposition one, which is the measure on the ballot that would enshrine abortion rights into the state constitution. So this is a remarkable moment, but we're here in California. And we're here to stand tall. And to meet this moment head on and to lead and lean in. And I'm very proud of that. But he also recently just signed a suite of legislation bills that would make abortion more accessible, increased funding, for access to abortion. I am very mindful that California can play an outsized role at this moment. I'm mindful of the fact that we punch above our weight. I'm mindful that this state is the largest and most diverse state in the world's most diverse democracy. I'm mindful of our history, our proud past, where we have led. And even bigger topic for Newsom has been climate change and California has long been aggressive in tackling the issue, but what has Newsom done? Well, what Gavin Newsom has done is build on it can be credit where do. Arnold Schwarzenegger, you know, one of his big signature issues was climate change and passed major legislation. And Gavin Newsom was extended those other measures to wean California from fossil fuels to promote alternative renewable energies and perhaps the big one is legislation that would ban the sale of any gas powered cars, the goal being California going all electric by 2035, which really isn't that far down forgive the metaphor too far down the road. Yeah, all these stances obviously put new sum on the more left side it seems of the Democratic Party. So I'd assume his relationship with Democrats is all good? No, I wouldn't say so. I mean, look, there are small things about governor Newsom style that folks in Sacramento don't like I'm talking about members of his own party. You know, they feel that he blindsides him sometimes. There was this legislation involving re upping the Diablo nuclear power plant, felt they were blindsided, they kind of brought it up in the last minute. So there are style things folks don't like, but there's also more substantive things. You know, he beat a legislation that would have let local governments set up safe drug injection sites. He's also taken on national Democrats after the Dobbs decision leaked out overturning roe V wade. He said, where the hell is my party? Where's the Democratic Party? Why aren't we standing up more firmly? More resolutely. And he's really gone after Democrats criticizing them for not being more vigorous. This is a concerted coordinated effort and yes, they're winning. They are. So he smacks down Republicans. He'll also smack down Democrats. Where does that tendency come from and what does he gain from that? Well, I think part of it is feeling that he's filling the shoes that he's been fitted with. Being California governor is, as I said, a big job, a big stage. I think that he feels that he has every right to speak out and should and should take advantage of that platform. I do think too, you know, he's talked about growing up dyslexic and being bullied and specifically said, I don't like bullies, which is how he's referred to some of these Republican governors. So I think in some sense, that's personal. And I think there's a little bit of ego there, thinking, hey, I'm governor of California, you know, people should pay attention

And <Speech_Female> calcium <Speech_Female> just kept dragging his feet <Speech_Female> and dragging his feet and <Speech_Female> was like a year late, <Speech_Female> finally <Speech_Male> coming out with a draft <Speech_Female> rule. <Speech_Female> The draft rule, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Male> you know, it proposes <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> construct a <Speech_Male> buffer of 3200 <Speech_Male> feet <Speech_Female> between communities <Speech_Female> and oil drilling. <Speech_Female> And <Speech_Female> to ban any quote <Speech_Female> new drilling. <Speech_Female> But that <Speech_Male> rule does not <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> preclude <Speech_Female> continuing <Speech_Female> to <Speech_Male> have wells <Speech_Male> that are already there <Speech_Male> produce oil <Speech_Male> and gas. And <Speech_Male> unfortunately, <Speech_Male> that doesn't fix <Speech_Male> the buffer problem. It <Speech_Male> doesn't fix the exposure <Speech_Male> problem. <Speech_Male> Because <Speech_Male> and also because <Speech_Male> permits, <Speech_Male> it seems to be that there are <Speech_Male> more rework permits <Speech_Male> being requested, right? <Speech_Male> Than drilling permits, <Speech_Male> and that that's the <Speech_Male> way things are going. <Speech_Male> It's an <Speech_Male> avenue for the oil industry <Speech_Male> to keep producing from <Speech_Male> existing wells, which <Speech_Male> doesn't protect communities. <Speech_Male> Moreover, <Speech_Female> that <Speech_Female> particular rule <Speech_Female> is still a draft rule and <Speech_Female> hasn't been finalized, <Speech_Female> so there <Speech_Female> is no buffer <Speech_Male> right now between <Speech_Male> communities and oil drilling. <Speech_Male> And again, <Speech_Female> it appears calm <Speech_Female> seems to <Speech_Female> be dragging its <Speech_Female> feet on <Speech_Female> finalizing anything. <Speech_Female> Now, <Speech_Female> hopefully what they're <Speech_Male> hearing is that the <Speech_Male> rules not good enough <Speech_Male> from <Speech_Male> dozens <Speech_Male> of environmental groups, <Speech_Female> including ours. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Male> We need to simply <Speech_Male> ban <Speech_Male> those <Speech_Male> wells within 3200 <Speech_Male> feet, <Speech_Male> regardless of whether they're <Speech_Male> currently producing <Speech_Male> or <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> they want to drill new ones. <Speech_Male> Well, the first <Speech_Female> step towards that <Speech_Female> is for the Newsom <Speech_Female> administration to <Speech_Male> stop approving <Speech_Male> the reworks <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> these <Speech_Female> old and idle <Speech_Female> wells <Speech_Female> in neighborhoods <Speech_Female> <Speech_Male> that could be putting <Speech_Male> people at risk. That's an <Speech_Male> easy low hanging <Speech_Female> fruit to <Speech_Female> start <Speech_Female> getting these wells out <Speech_Female> of communities and <Speech_Female> protecting us all from those <Speech_Female> dangerous leaks. <Speech_Female> Yes, and ordering <Speech_Female> the companies to <Speech_Male> cap the wells, <Speech_Male> ordering them to do so. <Speech_Male> They do <Speech_Male> have some orders on hand. <Speech_Female> I don't think they've <Speech_Female> issued, <Speech_Female> I mean, this is <Speech_Female> ridiculous. <Speech_Male> They should be issuing <Speech_Male> those orders. <Speech_Female> And I <Speech_Female> don't see any fines <Speech_Female> so far <Speech_Female> for these <Speech_Male> companies. They're 5 companies <Speech_Male> and Bakersfield <Speech_Male> involved here with <SpeakerChange> these leaky <Speech_Male> wells. I haven't heard anything about <Speech_Female> fines. <Speech_Female> Yeah, you know, <Speech_Female> it really needs <Speech_Female> to be stepped up <Speech_Female> or perhaps <Speech_Female> governor Newsom should <Speech_Female> think about firing <Speech_Female> his <Speech_Female> oil and <Speech_Female> gas supervisor. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Because <SpeakerChange> this <Speech_Female> isn't working. <Speech_Female> Well, <Speech_Male> thanks, Lisa. <Speech_Male> For <Speech_Female> walking us through all that, <Speech_Female> if <Speech_Female> those of you who are listening <Speech_Female> want to know <Speech_Female> where all these wells <Speech_Female> are, <Speech_Female> we're

"A very complicated situation where you could end up with a split. Vote where you have some democrats who like newt providing has been in the mid eighties. I think what democrats and a lot of police right you could ever you have that. Democrats would disapprove of newsom supporting the recall but then supporting another democrat on the ballot. Where it's a little bit of this whole thing is a little bit. Apples oranges comparison to everything. That is going to come next right. Yes yeah and look i. That's another thing that the campaign did right is to make sure that no other democrats jumped in the race and a lot of pundits and a lot of people are like. Why can't i just have enough. I don't like newsom that much. Why can't i just have another choice for a democrat. Well if there was another real choice for a democrat who knows what might have happened because then you might have had more people voting yes on the recall and picking a democrat and newsome and the other democrats splitting vote and then maybe republicans. Anything could i mean. He's winning by enough that maybe that wouldn't have mattered at all but it was clearly the right strategy from the newsom campaign to box out all the other democrats and to make sure that it was newsom versus a republican alternative in this case a right-wing crazy republican alternative and larry elder I also think like if you're if you're thinking about what this means going forward like you gotta look how newsom did in To orange county districts. That flipped republican. Twenty twenty to thirty ninth and the forty eighth. dave wasserman From cook political report says that he may be track to slightly lose these districts and of course in two thousand twenty democrats slightly lost those districts as well which would suggest sort of a national political environment if you extrapolate out california that is perhaps unchanged or hasn't changed ton since twenty twenty. I think we are. If you're looking to try to extract something you gotta dig pretty retracted. That tells you something about politics. Nationally there is nothing that happened on tuesday or the the six weeks leading up tuesday. That suggest anything has changed dramatically. There's some backlash to biden. There's some backlash democratic cova policies. We are just right where we were which is some pretty fired up. Democrats some pretty fired up. Republicans some folks in the middle who will decide elections in states much closer. Most more narrowly divided than california. And that's where we are. That could change between now and november of next year but the political environment is sort of status quo ante from election day. Twenty twenty right now and that last point is very important because from my talk about polarization in a state like california where it really matters where candidates matter their messages matter their ads the organization. Everything else that we talk about in campaigns polls In these purple districts and purple states where they're closely divided between democrats and republicans. And you win the race on the margins. That's where a lot of this stuff matters. In deep blue states like california or deep red states. It's not gonna matter as much now you said that you have to dig really deep to extrapolate something but Pundits did not have to dig that deep I know this is hard to believe. But there were some less-than-stellar takes about the recall on twitter of all places. I mean usually font reliable information and great observation. Cnn's chris eliza wrote that it was a very good night for larry elder's political future but but the winner of the most ratio. Take of the week goes to cnn's casey hunt who wrote quote the fact that a democratic national star in waiting face to recall and then had to fight hard for it midway through the campaign does say a lot about the potential challenges democrats face across the map. Does it dan. this is a situation where a plus b does not equality. Yes a democratic star in waiting Faced a recall challenge. Yes democrats have potential challenges in two thousand twenty two. Those two things have zero to do with each other. And that is the important part about this. Which is the reason gavin. Newsom face a recall as california has an absurd recall process with an absurdly low threshold. What it takes is wealthy interest to pay people to gather signatures to get it on the ballot. Gavin newsom is quite popular in most polling. He is well north of fifty percent. Know fifty sixty eight percent in approval rating his cova policies in a lot of polls are higher than his overall proving so there is no backlash to avenue some. There's no backlash to mass. Mandates vaccine mandates anything revenue with covert. There is backlash to joe biden. There's no backlash afghanistan. The fact that the recall on about has nothing to do with the national political environment at all into make take in gives you on as an excellent right. We all have that takes. I will probably have several before the end of this podcast but that is just a misunderstanding of the california recall law in the state of politics. Yes he did have to fight for it because getting people to turn out in an off your recall election in a pandemic is heart and you have to work for it. I read all these takes on tuesday night. I read a whole bunch more last night in this morning. Probation this pod. They're all terrible. That's yeah we. We're picking on casey just because of the the incredible ratio which is a stupid reason to pick on but we really get guided by twitter. It is indicative not only of a lot of the other takes but of an east coast bias among journalists as well. It's like just just understand the rules of a recall here in california. The country's biggest state you know. I know that. I know the only thing about us out there. When the The smoke from our wildfires blows across the country. East goes you would actually. We're here you of the population of the country. Right out here. You will move to california eight years ago. Seven years ago. Seventy seven years again. You already adopted the california inferiority complex like yes. We have highly. I totally get no knowing tacos over there mill. One fucking thinks about pacific coast time at all. Everyone's just like yet random hours like we're three hours behind you fucking understand. We have wildfires out here. Climate change is bad with bad here for a long time. If you have people in your life who still call you without texan you first. That's on you that's you. Then you have wrong. When i first moved out here was fucking reporters in dc. That's awesome. that's also a you problem. So that so that was so some bad takes but yeah look there are more than five million republicans in california. In this case you only need a little over a million signatures to force a recall petition. Like that doesn't say anything about gavin newsom unpopularity. That says something about the stupid fuck and recall line. California couple other takes just to watch out for you might also see reporters and pundits suggesting that larry elder beat the polls by capturing forty seven percent of the vote. He did not. He only captured forty seven percent among the recall candidates which is about twenty percent of the overall vote which is right in line with what the pulse said larryelder would do And then the other take that's going around there i it's a suggestion. That newsom underperformed with latino voters based on the exit polls data on exit poll demographic groups is even more unreliable than the exit polls themselves. And when you look at the actual county data There are so far no signs that newsom did any worse in places with significant latino populations i believe in orange county so far something like eighty five..

That i feel a t-shirt coming on aware proudly so what were your big takeaways danna from from last night Because i think there were some offerings there beyond california. Well my biggest takeaways that you had the line of the night on cnn. Which is that. The french laundry dinner was the most expensive dinner. Dinner's but but but in terms of the actual recall it. There was a lot of concern. And you you to know this far better than i. That gavin newsom himself and the people around him just like weren't getting it this a real thing and that the recall was going to happen. This is you know months ago. Of course and that they weren't taking it seriously enough but they did. And then something. And i just thought from an observer's point of view and somebody who is watched a lot of campaigns and the way they do things right and wrong with regard to messaging. It ended up being pretty pitch perfect. Because it's not often that somebody who is going through an election that is by definition a referendum on them. This isn't just a regular election jets. Upper down you yeah Turn it into a referendum on everybody else on trump on rhonda santos and florida greg abbott in in In texas and did a pretty pretty well now. We had the right audience for it. Which is the state of california which is pretty darn blue. But it didn't mean that people were jazzed up enough to actually vote in the recall and they did in large part because that message resonated. Don't you think yeah. Gibbs i i mean i i totally agree with that Know you and. I worked a lot of campaigns and when you have an embattled incumbent and there's no more embattled incumbent when you're you've got a recount your mission number one is to make sure that it's not about them the That it's a choice in that a referendum mission number two is to make sure to frame that choice in a way that gets your people Energized bryant.

"For democrats for my own reporting out in various communities across california talking to democratic voters the overwhelming majority of them said the reason that they were voting to keep news him was because of his response to the pandemic. And so this. I think you could really take away as a signal of support for his approach. Even though republicans and Many conservative voters in california were extremely frustrated by his early restrictions and his new kinds of mandates. The majority of californians are saying we like it. We wanna be safe and we think you're on the right track so those those messages of you know you're keeping us out of school which were so strong early in the recall. They just didn't seem to kind of carry through all the way to the some of that has obviously faded as the state has reopened. The potency of problems like children not being in school is in his vivid for voters. Now that classrooms actually are open again. So it's not to say those that frustration and anger is gone completely but when you're facing another surge of the virus this summer delta variant raging you know raging through california hospitals in some parts of the state being overrun people rallied around the idea of mass mandates and vaccine requirements for healthcare workers. And all these kinds of steps that gavin newsom was taking saying they're necessary to keep us safe. And if you vote me out. Larry elder is gonna come and he's going to sign an executive order the very next day. Overturning all of those safety measures.

Sf chronicle dot com that says republicans blew the recall an opportunity to perhaps take the governor's mansion what happened. Where did they go wrong. Yeah it was a generational chance for them to to win a statewide office which they haven't done since two thousand six in california. This is the sort of a surprise election. They were coping the catch the democrats napping or or disinterested than for a while they were but then you know because of what lexi industrial talked about they add newsom woke him up and We have this Result that we have tonight now. Republicans are in a very tough place. They have a very few candidates who can run and win. Statewide they. They're they're kind of they're kind of trapped. They're kind of trapped because most of the core of the party is supporter or sort of acolytes donald trump hardcore conservatives that is not where most californians are right now They have done. Little to broaden their try and broaden their support in this race they failed. They have all these issues that we talk that we've talked about homeless that's et cetera et cetera and they failed to try and they failed to capture moderate voters with any of their ideas So they're going to be they look.

"Newsom in the candidates hoping to replace him spent the weekend campaigning across the state and President Biden is planning to visit the Golden State today in support of Newsome, KQED politics Reporter Guy Marzorati joins us to discuss the final stretch of this campaign. Hello, Guy. Good morning. So Newsome was campaigning in Oakland on Saturday. And what did you have to say? Well, the governor's closing argument this weekend was really focused on Larry Elder, who is the candidate leading the polls to potentially replace Newsome. Brian. For months, Newsom has tried to spur Democrats to the polls by trying to raise the stakes of this election. And, you know, tie his opposition in this whole recall to former President Donald Trump. It's only been since Elder has dominated the polls among GOP voters. That's really allowed Newsome to say, Look, my potential replacement is not hypothetical. This is not a referendum. It's this guy. If I'm out, and it's allowed him to make this closing argument, what is at stake if we don't turn in the ballots and turn out the vote on September 14th Larry Elder Will be the next governor of the state of California. It's also interesting to note who Newsome was rallying with in Oakland on Saturday. It was with S E I u his union allies. These are groups that are known for being able to get out the vote having people on the street door knocking. They have also been a really key part financially of this coalition to stop the recall of if you look at the top five donations Against this recall, three are from labor unions representing long term caregivers, teachers and correctional officers. And how about the Republican candidates trying to knock Newsom out and replace him? How were they making their closing pitch this weekend? We'll start with Larry Elder. He held a press conference in Southern California on Sunday, and he also acknowledged that there is this shift in this race away from A kind of referendum on Newsome and into a choice between the governor and elder. But Elder spent a large part of his event, really blaming the press and the media for this dynamic I can't think of any front at all for this game. Good job. You guys want to talk about yourself, And that's because this man Gavin Newsom has been able to Switch this thing from a referendum on his behavior, his governance into a Republican takeover..

"C. So kevin i was thinking about what we could call this episode about california's second ever gubernatorial recall election. And i started thinking about. How arnold schwarzenegger the terminator one the last one becoming the governator. Come with me if you want to live and how this is kind of a sequel right. So now i'm thinking why come up with a new name when the terminator franchise already did it for terminator two judgment day. This time he's back good. Trust me recall to judgment day. Perfect yeah that's great close tuesday. In california's gubernatorial recall election. Recent polls seem to be in newspaper. His campaign is not leaving it to chance. Recom- campaign is about california. And it's about a whole lot more. I'm jeremy siegel. This is politico dispatch and today. California editor kevin yamamura on governor gavin newsome's judgment. So what exactly is happening in california tomorrow. What are californians gonna be voting on so tomorrow. They're going to decide. First whether they want to. Recall governor gavin newsom and that's a straight up or down vote of a majority decides. They want to recall the governor. Then we moved to the second question which will be on the same ballot where forty six candidates appear and voters can choose among any of the forty six In addition to several write in candidates And if a majority of voters actually decides they want to house new some than whoever has the most votes on the second question would become governor. And at this point it's looking like larry elder The trump supporting conservative talk radio. Host is kind of the front runner among those forty-six names right. Yeah he's coalesced. support largely from conservatives but also from voters who know him from his decades on the radio he also had some tv shows. Someone new in to our larry elder honor roll rb this week someone from toledo ohio. The short lived moral court and syndication So larry others got a name. He's got some views that are sort of a no-holds-barred talk show host type of persona and that's really appealed to some people and i think You know right now. He's got at least twenty percent support. Polls show maybe even climbing toward forty percent but Mind you. This is a percentage of votes among those who actually choosing a replacement candidate so not. Everybody is even answering that second question. What are the forces that you think are going to decide the results tomorrow. Well turnout turnout turnout. Turnout has been the name of the game. Initially there was a thought that republicans. We're going to turn out in large numbers. They were highly motivated to vote over the last several weeks however Democrats have really turned the tide and getting their voters out and also getting independence vote as well. So experts think that the democrats have managed to get enough of their voters and enough Independent voters out to defeat the recall. we'll have to see. I wanna talk about a couple possibilities of where california might be after tomorrow You said it seems sort of most likely like democrats are going to have the votes to keep newsom in office. So the first scenario we'll talk about is gavin. Newsom remains governor of california. I'm curious wear you think that things politically if newsom does. Come away from this Still being governor of california like is he unscathed at that point if he does win this election or does the fact that it even got this far in a super blue state like is. Is this something. That's sort of tainted him politically for forever. I think there are two trains of thought and some of it will depend on how much he wins. how much he beat back. This recall if it's if it's a big win You he could view that as a mandate of some sort if he beats us by twenty points or more if it's a close close win Then who knows. I mean people could see that as Look this governor is not as popular as he thinks he is as popular as democrats think he is so certainly the margin will will play a factor in determining some of that but a governor that defeats a recall. Might come out of it. Stronger and You know we we turn right around and head into the twenty twenty two election cycle which would already be starting on the natural right now anyway. There's a june primary in california. So i mean we're we're not that far away from the next gubernatorial election and california has a top two primary system. You could see the potential for some kind of a moderate deciding to jump in the race. In addition to some of these republicans who are already running the recall Just turning around and ryan again in the twenty two election as well so i. i think there's some people who think that he could out of this even stronger. There's some others who think that yeah he he might be damaged because we saw how people really feel about this governor. So let's talk about the second Less likely scenario here but still a possibility That one of those challengers probably most likely larry elder the talk radio personality we were talking about ends up becoming governor after voters decide to oust. Newsom what do you think that would actually end up looking like i mean you mentioned that. There's already going to be another gubernatorial election next year. At the end of the day california's a super super blue state that has a democratic supermajority in the state legislature. Right like what would it really look like to have sort of an uber. Conservative governor in this super blue state potentially only for a year. Well i think we would see somebody like elder try to test the bounds of His power as a governor in a in a super blue state Somebody who might try to use the executive order powers to full extent that he can you know we. We saw governor newsom use his executive powers extensively during the pandemic that said democrats control More than two thirds of the legislative houses i think it would empower the legislature the democratic legislature even more because They might see their their role and responsibility as trying. To overturn anything elder tries to do including any overriding vetoes. If it came to that on bills or trying to pass legislation that that would cancel out any of his executive orders. I mentioned before that this is the second time ever in california history that you've had one of these recall elections the first time. The one where arnold schwarzenegger ended up being coming governor. The ousting of governor gray davis. I'm curious for you as someone who's been tracking california politics for years who's been reporting on this day in and day out. I know we don't know the results of this yet but like how do you think you're going to be looking back on this moment. Politically.

And that if he doesn't get reelected that larry elder specifically or any other republican will pull back some of those measures that he's taken and we're going to hear biden talk about covert in about responding the cove whenever he's in california just telling voters this is what we need in order to keep our state and our people say you know. It is the last day before the deadline for the election. I mean how much could be attributed to president biden. You know one way or the other if he wins or loses. Well they're hoping is the attention that comes with him. Being there will remind people. I mean really what it comes down to. California is a state that is much more democratic than it was the last time in elected a republican governor and that was a recall and democrats really believe that this is about getting people that pay attention and show up that if you everyone voted that the democrats will win in a landslide. But if they can't convinced democrats is important and reminding this leaning to do. Then they'll lose and so really. They're hoping that it's about attention. It's about you know you're more likely to be aware of the president. Is there whatever he travels the state and that will jog people to get that ballot either male then or to show up on tuesday in vote. Seven million ballots have been cast so far a lot of them are have been democrats. So we'll see we'll see what happens. Obviously after tuesday there was a wrench thrown into this whole thing. Also by actress rose mcgowan. She's actually going to join. Larry elder onstage to share a kind of a weird story related harvey weinstein. She claimed that gavin newsome's wife called her emailed her six months before mcgowan came out with her allegations against harvey weinstein and basically said relayed a message from his lawyer. David boies saying you know. What can we do to make you happy. Basically like what can we do to make the story go away. Basically that's right. I mean. I really think that's just part of the theme. That has been critical of newsom that he is an elitist that he's out of touch that he died at the french laundry and ignored his own. Covered rules. I mean really what they're trying to say is you know he's not one of you. And larry elder the leading republican who she had sort of given her support to doing. This is a person that many californians know they've heard on the radio for a long time They're familiar with his voice. His name his story and the argument be made. That newsome is sort of out of touch and elder is one of you as somebody who's been around a long time. Yeah just an interesting last minute wrench thrown into all of that so we'll see if that impacts anything as well as i mentioned. Tuesday is the deadline for that recall and then Lastly before we leave just another interesting story an interesting development for those that were in prison and released because of cova precautions through the care. Zach some of them might have to go back. I guess they're saying that. You know once the emergency declaration ends for the pandemic. Maybe about a month after a lot of people might have to go back. We're looking at maybe forty five hundred inmates. That would have to go back. That are currently on home confinement. That's right a great starting from my colleague at nbc. News dot com. Looking at this this real question about what is going to happen to these people who were serving presents sentences that cares acts allowed them to be released Under the argument that they weren't dangerous they didn't pose a risk to society and the crowding in the number number of people in prisons was really an issue for the spread of the disease. And do they have to go back. Yes it looks like they might have to go back a month after the declaration is up to be clear that could be a long time from now before we get to the end of the declaration. But i suspect we're going to hear more about this than people really pushing judges or the president to take some action because these are people that have demonstrated they can abide by the law while they're at home they haven't violated these orders and it seems kind of trivial. It's make them go back after all this time. Ginger gibson deputy washington digital editor at nbc. News thank you very much for joining us. Examine me. it's crazy.

"newsom" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"Hey everyone. I'm david chaldean. The cnn political director. This is the cnn political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for wednesday september first. We are less than two weeks away from the california recall election. America's most populous state is going to decide whether or not to fire its governor on some random tuesday in the middle of september in an odd number year. There's actually a huge gubernatorial contest. Going on it's the california recall race as you know the democratic governor. They're gavin newsom is subject to a recall election. And you may be thinking well. How is this even possible. California is overwhelmingly democratic. And that is true if you look at the voter. Registration statistics in california. Democrats outnumber republicans by nearly two to one. So you would think newsom should be totally safe. Except it's this random election that not a lot of folks have dialed into yet. And when you look at the polling which right now. I think it is fair to say favors newsom holding onto his job but barely it does show this big difference between registered voters as i just said democrats have a huge advantage there with likely voter models likely voters the actual electorate that shows up. You can see republicans narrowing that gap because the enthusiasm and commitment to this. Election is on their side to oust gavin newsom. Now why is he. Being recalled there are a whole host of issues. There are complaints about the homelessness crisis in california clearly is co vid management came under intense scrutiny especially when he showed up last fall at the fancy french laundry restaurant up in northern california not following his own guidelines for masks and public outings but the reality is republicans. Saw an opportunity here. They had an extended deadline due to kobe to be able to gather signatures. And now it is this moment where in this overwhelmingly democratic state a republican could potentially get elected with just a small slice of the electorate. Here's we need to keep in mind. The ballot has two questions on it. The first question. Would you like to recall. Governor gavin newsom from office. Yes or no so. That's a pure test if a majority say no then gavin newsom remains in office but if a majority say yes then questioned to goes into effect which is which of these forty forty six candidates running to be a replacement to newsom. Would you like to support. Will you can imagine with forty six candidates on the ballot. You finley slice and diced the electorate right now conservative radio talk show host. Larry elder is the leading contender to be the replacement candidate. If indeed newsom is recalled and this week he sat down with. Cnn's joe johns. And he started airing some of his pretty controversial views including this which clearly not wear the sciences related to co vid and kids. Give a listen. I don't believe the science suggests that young people should be vaccinated. I don't believe the science suggests that young people should have to wear a mask at school. I'm not sure the science settled on that at all and young people are not likely to contract the the corona virus. And when they do. Their symptoms are likely to be mild and not likely to be hospitalized. And certainly not likely to die. The science suggests the exact opposite of his claims and his opinions are in sharp contrast with what medical professionals have been saying which is that children who are unvaccinated children under twelve while they may not experience severe cases of cova did they are certainly at risk and all recommendations are that if you're unvaccinated as all children under twelve are you should be wearing masks in public places like schools. The fact that larry elder is now saying he's going to repeal mask mandates for state employees again goes against the grain of what the science suggests. Now he says he's not anti vacs he himself gotta vaccine he urges people to get a vaccine but he is clearly leaning into the republican base. That has been hesitant sceptical about the vaccine now as of today september first more than four and a half million ballots have already been returned every california registered voter got ballot in the mail and according to the party breakdown. We know that fifty four percent of them. Roughly have been returned by democrats compared to twenty four percent. I- republicans twenty two percent i independence. Here's the thing you can always count that. A democratic ballot is absolutely against the recall but if these kinds of margins keep up gavin newsom is going to sleep a little more easily at night but the question is a republicans hanging onto their ballots will flood in at the end because they're considering who they want the alternative to be. They already know they are in favor of the recall. But we don't know if democrats are being over represented in these early days and that republicans may return their ballots later in the process. They have of course until september. Fourteenth gavin newsome's mission is to enliven a democratic electorate. Make them aware of the election is happening. That's what a lot of his tv. Ads are geared toward and get them to turn out if they do. He's going to be fine but if republicans dominate this electorate between now and when all the votes are counted on september fourteen. You could have larry elder. Let's say getting about twenty percent. Twenty five percent of the vote a bare majority votes to recall newsom. And then larry elder is elected governor as a conservative republican in a hugely democratic state. With just about twenty six percent of the electorate. That's how nutty this system is and why newsome's team is working overtime to make sure their voters don't think this is an election. Were sitting out. that's it for today's political briefing. Thanks so much for listening and please follow us. Wherever you get your podcasts. We'll see you tomorrow..

"Now here's more of our conversation with alexi casa and dustin gardner about the recall campaign against gavin. Newsom speaking of that when you talk about roaring back or is the governor says all right back on the day. We're recording this. California reimposed universal masking for all residents in all public indoor settings regardless of whether they have had the vaccine or not and that follows with the similar guidance that the centers for disease control said on tuesday since. This is the all political. Podcast dustin how does masking effect newsome's recall. Chances doesn't it it. can you say we're roaring back. If we're wearing a mask the what. We have to wear to go to safeway the berkeley poll correctly from ronald lexi. His numbers should there's pretty high approval for his handling the pandemic. among as whole. But again this act. This effort is could be determined by those who turn up the in. That's you know a lot of ways. Republicans are more energized and republicans in particular have been often motivated by concerns their their their fears and their concerns about the state's pandemic response and just kind of got her whole resistance to mask orders and in vaccine orders. And i think yeah in that sense it could you know. Sort of emboldened newsome's critics to feel like that the state is constantly shifting on his pandemic restriction. So i don't think. I don't think it helps the governor but with but again if voters buying large as a whole turn out i think you know it seems like majority by not be that turned off. I mean i. There's been an interesting sort of conundrum here too One thing that i've seen is that the recall organizers themselves have not really been going after newsom as much on the pandemic stuff because they they are seen the same polling that shows that as a whole you know newsome is pretty..

"Welcome to it's all political. The san francisco. Chronicle's political podcast. I'm joe garafolo the chronicle senior political writer and today we're talking about the recall campaign against california governor gavin. Newsom if you've asked me a couple months ago of newsom who's going to be recalled. I'd have said the chances were slim. But things are changing and new pulling out this week shows that likely voters are split about whether to boot news breaking that down with me today are to journalists who have been covering this since day one the chronicle sacramento bureau reporters alexi casa and dustin gardner. A lot of people. Just figured that newsom would ease through this the way he did in two thousand eighteen when he won by record margins and so people have not really been paying attention not really been considering whether they need to vote when they need to vote. All these questions newsom shop has really decided that if they're going to motivate democrats they kind of have to scare them a little bit about what the alternatives mate e and. Now here's our conversation about the recall campaign against gavin newsom. Alexei goes up and dustin gardner. Welcome back to. It's all political and we still have a name for our segment here.

Thanks for having us. Yeah we could call it the capital check in. Maybe something like that. It's like a bad motel or second rain. I'll keep keep brainstorming keyboarding now. In the early summer many people including some we know and talk to everyday thought gavin. Newsom was going to easily survive. This recall but there is some new polling out that shows that we have a race in our hands..
