Congressman Devin Nunes: People Are Voting With Their Feet
"5 years ago, it was general Flynn. My former White House colleague, who has targeted by the FBI, now it's mothers at school board meetings. We have so much to discuss in this hour. So they've gone from a three star general to mothers, let me ask you, where does this end? What is the likely scenario? Does it become socialism? After the last year and a half with COVID and people, you know, genuflecting at the altar of fear that Fauci created, are we going to comply? You are the antithesis of the career politician, your farmer, your citizen politician, from that vantage point, what is your expectation? Where does this end up congressman Nunez? Well, if you look at what's happened throughout COVID, the socialist states, so called blue states have become more and more socialist bordering on total tailoring ism type of tactics that they're using, especially here in California where now you just had the governor come out after he narrowly escaped after spinning a quarter of a $1 billion to defend himself outside of that money coming in in the last month. He likely would have been recalled. Well, now he's still here. Newsom is here. And first thing he does is he says, well, we're going to go out and we're going to mandate that all your kids get these shots. And so this is and we expect more draconian measures to come in the future. So I think you're going to see more conservatives, Republicans independents who want to live in freedom are going to leave places like California every single day. You can't get a U haul truck here in California without paying an exorbitant price because you have to pay to bring it back from states like Idaho, Tennessee, Texas, et cetera. So people are voting with their feet. They're moving with their feet. They're setting up a very dangerous situation here where we have a series of blue socialist states and red free
California Gov. Gavin Newsom Imposes 'Woke' Ideology With Series of Signed Laws
"So when you look at California California says it all Daily mail governor Gavin Newsom has signed several notable bills into law in recent days they include a bill that will see California public schools and colleges stocking the restrooms with free menstrual products Mister bidders I thought there weren't any differences between thee Well in genitalia so why are we having menstrual products That's a biological matter isn't it I thought your genitalia was a psychological matter not a biological matter and there they are They're going to stock they're going to compel California public schools and colleges to stock restrooms with free menstrual products Do men who still have their biological genitalia Do they get free menstrual products too In another bill large department stores must now display products including toys and toothbrushes and general excuse me gender neutral ways While I wait a minute how do we display menstrual products in a gender neutral way Seriously But toys now and toothbrushes must be a general gender neutral way Why See how sick this is How minority the minority control the majority And so common sense and morality are completely out of the window This is the insanity That we're experiencing Does not completely outlaw traditional boys and girls sections at stores but says large stores must also have a gender neutral section to display
Liberals Violate Their Own Norms in the Most 'Elite, Refined and Sophisticated' Manner
"I'm talking to. Victor davis hanson. The new book the dying citizen. How progressive elites tribalism oxford comma and globalization are destroying the idea of america. You're just making a point. And you were about to give us another example of what you were describing. I don't know if you remember. I do we that we have people like nancy pelosi. That violates the corentin. She insists on others to get our hair done. Are we have these. Various mayors who break out or gavin. Newsom has to eat at the french longed remember. They always violate their own norms. In the most elite refined sophisticated manner but even have the marxist shock troops of this revolution that we're fighting phyllis cuellar's fourth house. It's an all white to tahonga. That has raked in zillions with yes with. Blm black lives matter. She cares so much about the poor that she has a fourth house. Isn't that sweet. I want to ask you when you talk about. Why they're doing this in the name of equality and so on and so forth isn't it ultimately irrelevant. Of course it's irrelevant in other words if we the people don't give them permission to do this they must not do it. They have no right to do it. So what they're doing is in contravention of the whole idea of america that we the people choose our leaders to do what we need them to do. They are comfortable with that. So they're looking for a way around it. And they've been finding ways around it and i and i mentioned that in the book that what i just said is what we used to say and scholarship. The pro faucets the pretexts. That's what they say they want a quality and they're really do try to enact it out but it's really about their desire for power. Just like the bolsheviks. Jack

Here's kate wolf from member station k. Q. e. d. after eighteen months of protections. Legislators say there isn't political will to extend the eviction moratorium but people won't be kicked out right away as the deadline approaches.

Technically since the crawford's are still waiting for rent relief. They can't be evicted yet. California has only given out a small percentage of the seven point.

Maskless San Francisco Mayor Caught Breaking Health Order at Local Club
"You realize the democrats are capable of. Electing somebody like london breed. Now i know san francisco is wild. I get it it's a it's a. It's a world unto itself. Most americans can't relate in any way shape perform to the antics of san francisco and maybe a great example of that is the woman who runs the city. The mayor so she held a press conference this week over the firestorm of controversy. She's facing her own city ordinance. Which is one of the strictest ordinances in the country requires masks indoors whether you're vaccinated or not now. You got to hear her explanation. This is classic. This is a typical. This is the gavin newsom. French laundry thing all over again. This is chris. Cuomo caught on tape marching through his apartment building without a mask on confronting bicyclist south in his house in the hamptons when he's the middle of fighting kovin. These guys are such a joke but consider this woman. The mayor of one of america's most famous prominence cities. I give you the mayor of san francisco explaining why she violated her own. Strict mask mandate inside the city. Jazz club incredible musicians who performed and who really uplifted the spirits of not just myself but all of the people who were there and from my perspective you know i was there i was eating and i was drinking and i was sitting with my friends and everyone who came in there was vaccinated so the fact that we have turned this into a story about being massless. No i'm not gonna sit in. Put my mask on sip and put my mask on sip input mask on. Eat input my mask on. Well i'm eating and i'm drinking. I'm gonna keep my mask off and yes in in time. Why we're drinking like everyone else. There we were all having a good time and again all vaccinated so the fact that this is even a story. His sad got better. Where's the pit about feeling the spirit. Oh we got the. We left the best part out. She felt the spirit she wanted to move. She was feeling this get them. I'll play that clip. Maybe for alfredo ortiz. Because we let the best part out. She was feeling the spirit. She's having a good time and she was vaccinated. Never mind that. The city ordinance literally requires vaccinated people to wear a mask indoors. But she's the mayor
Forcing Small Kids To Wear Masks Isn't Science, It's Child Abuse
"As a nation how far we've fallen. Where tens of millions of people if not 100 million, plus think that torturing our kids and abusing them by putting masks on their face. They can provide no actual evidence whatsoever. Have stopped this spread. None provide some anecdotal stories, little pockets of evidence that it may have stopped an infection from someone actively spewing droplets. You can provide no evidence disease or systemically effective at all. And yet, in the interest of taking it to conservatives and insulting Donald Trump supporters, you abuse your own kids. But it's it's stunning. It's really tough to see how far I watched it, and I'm sitting there and it's like day in the gym, which is even worse. And I'm watching this. I'm like this can't possibly be happening. We have people abusing their own kids. In childcare facilities. This is child abuse. Child abuse. We have people abusing kids. In order to make a political point. And you may say, Oh, they're not abusing kids in there doing it for their safety. Really? Because the people mandating this are doing it for their safety. Andrew Cuomo, No Mass. Remember that picture. Gavin Newsom. French laundry? No mask. London Breed Mayor of San Francisco. We got her coming up next. No mask. Emmy Awards last night. No mask. Uh, Hollywood people, no mask. Yeah. You can't have it both ways. Even the mass stop the spread, and everybody should be wearing them or they don't you think there are force and we should just be abusing kids with them?
NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins Will Be 'Surprised' if Booster Shots Aren't Expanded
"Dr francis collins was on with chris wallace yesterday on fox news. Sunday had a pretty interesting thing to say about authoritative statements. Now i immediately thought of people. Like cuomo gretchen. Whitmer gavin newsom. Because there's just no question that the tyrannical impulses have been realized by a lot of major democrats. Listen what francis collins from the nih said to chris about well his view of authoritative statements. We'll have to see what they say ultimately about the youngest individuals because of concerns about benefits and risks. But i will be surprised. Boosters are not recommended for people under sixty five going forward in the next few weeks. But we'll wait and see you know chris. What you're seeing here is science playing out in a very transparent way. This is the way it ought to be a little trouble. That people are complaining that the process isn't working for them. The process is to look at the data. Have the experts considerate and then make their best judgment. At that point recognizing the judgments may chain if people want an absolutely authoritative statement about. Here's the right answer. Well that's not. What our country is all about moved to china. You'll get it there now. That could be interpreted in a variety of ways. Perhaps he's simply saying we're sort of making this up as we go. We admitted we're not going to give authoritative savings. that's how i read it.
Mark Levin on California Recall Election: California Is 'Ungovernable' Under Newsom
"There's a couple ways to look at this and they're not mutually exclusive. The vote in California was a disaster. For California. It was a disaster for the people of California. Those who want to be free Those who believe in Private property rights. Those who believe in capitalism and those who want to be left alone. And so the enemy has taken over California. California is the bluest blue states. So it was a huge defeat for those who believe in liberty in our form of government, those who believe in tyranny In centralized totalitarian ism, Massive tax increases, open borders and the rest you want. You won And so California is now an ungovernable. Impossible state. That's number one. Number two. I want to thank those of you who fought You are the great Patriots. Against all odds. You stood up. Then you fought And I've been saying behind this microphone for years, almost two decades when people say Mark. I don't think we can win or Mark. What do you think is going to happen? What do I say? Mr Producer Fight. Fight. No need to predict outcomes. Fight.
"newsom" Discussed on Pod Save America
"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..
Anti-Republican Jimmy Kimmel Gives Larry Elder a Shout Out
"Even jimmy. Kimmel incidentally gave larry elder some credit. Here's cut twelve jimmy. Kimmel is an republican anti conservative anti-trump one of these late night comics. That has stopped being funny because all they want to do is rip us. And i'm sure he did plenty of attacking larry elder. There's been such a smear campaign against larry. It's kinda hard to believe but here was jimmy. Kimmel giving kudos to larry elder for his gracious speech the night that it was announced. The governor shen held onto his job yesterday. gavin newsom didn't not win. He didn't get fired. Not even close. He trounced the clown car full of candidates for running against him. The cost to our state was about three hundred billion dollars. Which i think is the third most expensive dinner at french laundry. Ever republican vote-getter radio host. Larry elder was surprisingly. Gracious in defeat accepted the results of the election. I forgot what it was. Like to see a republican. Do that but Every once a while you see a chicken fly and you're like oh yeah they're birds. Yeah we republicans. Were never gracious. Gracious is my middle name. I'm always gracious jerk.

California Governor Gavin Newsom Recall Victory Reveals How Voters See the Issues
"The dirty little secret about the effort to recall california. Democratic governor gavin. Newsom is that it started before any of the putative reasons. They said they were doing at least later right. The recall effort got underway in february twenty twenty before kovin had taken hold in california. The petition reads people in the state central about highest taxes in the nation the highest homelessness rates the lowest quality of life as a result continuing he has imposed sanctuary states satis fails to enforce immigration laws he unilaterally overrule the will of the people regarding the death penalty he seeks to impose additional burdens on rationing our water use increasing taxes and restricting parental rights. Well that's not really a platform for her mainstream california voter once got going. However the people pushing recall shifted they wanted then be a referendum on covert policy arguing. The lockdowns for too strict kid should have been back in schools person and it was newsome's fault they weren't and of course there. Were infamously the pictures of governor newson back in november last year. Unmasked at a fancy restaurant with lobbyist. Evidently ignoring his own lock down protocols which was exceedingly bad luck. So republicans across the country saw this as a winning issue and while i agree the issue of corona virus and restrictions and how to best battle. It is top of mind right now with this recall. Election shows us the state of california. And it's voters are actually in favor of the state's kobe. Policies and republicans are on the wrong side of it.
"newsom" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"File all right. We'll take that. He liked. 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.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom Beats Back Recall
"Let's talk about the big story for california jennifer. Did they steal it. What's the latest result. When will the when will the final official you know when they've printed enough fake ballots. What will that result the well. It was kind of interesting because at the recall election did fail against gavin newsom. He did survive at least for now right now. It was kind of interesting though. The last vote count happened to two o'clock in the morning last night. Sub i've been watching all morning long to see if they would update the numbers. They will not and i think it's by design. I think they want it to look like more of a wipeout than it will actually be only seventy percent of precincts are in and and reporting only seventy percent of the vote. Count is in right now. It is separated at a sixty three point nine. Two thirty six point one margin so obviously we're under no grand illusions that we're gonna make up all that room but the ballots had haven't been counted yet. Were cast yesterday in person by mostly republican. So i think the margin on this is going to be a lot closer. But the democrats want to say that they have a mandate. And they're waiting. They're banking on the fact that people are checking the headlines today looking at that big thirty point margin and then moving on. I think when all is said and done this is going to tighten up quite a bit until we get that final tally. So so the initial results from all the early voting. The mail in ballots Then they have to add all the actual votes that were cast yesterday. If you look at the you know it's it's pretty much a consistent trend line across the states. The democrats vote early because hey you know chicago vote. Early often and republicans usually like to vote in person to make sure no. Somebody hasn't voted in their

Some people say then great. That's up to you. you can get vaccinated. You can let me do my own thing except remember there are people in this country who literally cannot get vaccinated called children. Nearly two hundred fifty two thousand new cases reported in just the last week the biggest weekly increase. We've ever seen a quarter of all new cases in this country now in children for much of the year parents have been trying to keep their kids safe in the corona virus despite kids under twelve not being eligible for the vaccines will yesterday. We got some clarity on win. Those shots might be approved. We expect to have that data by the end of september tender. We would expect to follow that with the fda in early october fruit. Potentially visor has been conducting trials for its maxine among children and says it could be able to submit its data in early october. First for five to twelve year olds then for kids under five. Then dr anthony thao she suggested. The fda could even turn right around and approve these drugs within weeks. It is very likely that vaccines will be available down to five or six years old as we get into october and early november but to parents watching kids get sick in increasing numbers. A few weeks feels like a lifetime because we now live in a world where contrary to everything you've heard about kids and at last year children are now making up about a quarter of new cases. Dr adam mez off is the chief medical officer for dayton children's hospital documents of i'm wondering how many covert patients did you start this surge with and how many do you have now. Yes as an example at the first part of the pandemic it would be rare for us to have a child in hospital with kobe. Although we did in august we had one patient in the hospital on average in the last two to three weeks we have twelve to fifteen patients in the hospital on an average day. Our icu census has some time set up to forty percent of their patients as cove it although it's usually about twenty percent of their patients which does not sound like a ton of people in the hospital like twelve or fifteen kids but when you compare it to one or two. The percentage change if you extrapolate that across a lot of hospitals staggering so what is changing is it just. Schools are open. That's it i think. Part of the explanation is you have to put it in the context of the current circumstances. And let me tell you what. I mean by that We've described as almost as a perfect storm concern for so many parents across this country as millions of children head back to school. So we have Dramatic increase in the amount of covert. That's happening and children at least forty five school districts with more than forty thousand students have shut down in person learning because of cove infections although last year. This wasn't the case this year. We are definitely seeing cova. Being transmitted within schools last year. Were vigorous about our masking this year. We there haven't been as many mandates for masking in texas where the governor has banned mass mandates in schools. A record number of children hospitalized with colin. I think because of how vigorous were masking we. In some ways protected ourselves from some of the common respiratory viruses. We've typically seen. These include the common cold influenza and respiratory since virus or r. s. v. respiratory illness that can cause ammonia in infants and those viruses usually come in the winter. They are now coming right now in numbers. We haven't even seen in the winter. Everyone was on lockdown so the immunity that they would have gotten from these common viruses did not happen so they remained very susceptible to all of these viruses. So this morning. We had applause admitting patients to the hospital as we couldn't find rooms so that meant tape. Patients had to stay in the emergency room temporarily while we figured out where we could put them. We have six children's hospitals in the state of ohio. Every one of them is in the same circumstance. Wow and so what does that look like on the hospital floor. I mean i. is that the stories. We hear from adults about ventilators. And is that what these kids are facing. It's we're so used to hearing. That is not a serious for children. It is less common to get seriously to get children with serious illness. When misty took her daughter to the urgent care. she was diagnosed with cova nineteen pneumonia and respiratory sensational virus or r. s. v. What'd she started coughing blood in her. Flim housing no. That's enough and that's when we went to the hospital. But i talked to my colleagues at nationwide children's today and i believe they have a half a dozen children on ventilators because of kovin just sitting there watching her i. You can't do nothing to fix it so again. The first part of the pandemic that was not something anybody thought of a really was reporting. Kids are getting sick. Like adults are getting sick. Maybe not in the same numbers but the severity is incredible. This virus don't care it's gonna hit who it can here and it's going to just keep going. What's that like for your staff. And what's that like for these people who are interacting with patients and parents. We've heard about people even arguing over whether they are their kid has cove it in the first place. What's it like to to look around the hospital floor right now. It's taking a great toll. We have incredibly dedicated. Doctors nurses respiratory therapists. He blew clean rooms. The people who work here are here because they care about children in keeping children's healthy and safe This is the fourth night this week. I've been on call and it's been a long week and there's a frustration that we haven't been able to do that and because of that children are suffering. We have a premature infant in the neonatal. Icu on oh which is the heart lung. Bypass machine in our pick. You we have a twenty three month old infant on a high frequency oscillating ventilator We've had four other teenagers on vaccinated in the unit on various.

"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. Yeah it certainly didn't help the recall voters looking to other states. That are not doing as well as california right there at the end job. You're fully you have a column up at. 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. They appear to be doomed for the foreseeable future to be a minority party in california destined. Well this is going on. I mean i think a lot of voters a lot of people in california with a really interested in the big crises homelessness. Wildfires the drought. Where does this leave gavin newsom as. He faces those big challenges. I mean. we're looking at. You know not seeing any perhaps rainfall or snowfall until the winter. We're in we're in real trouble here.

"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..
"newsom" Discussed on POLITICO Dispatch
"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.

Sixty three percent of hispanics voted for him two years earlier. Now the majority of hispanics want him gone. The majority of independence voted for him. Two years earlier now the majority of them want him gone. Ginger gibson deputy washington digital editor at nbc news. Thanks for joining us ginger. Thanks for having me the deadline. For the gavin. Newsom recall is just one day away on tuesday voters in california face two questions. Do you want to recall. Governor gavin newsom and the second question is if you do who should replace him and right now conservative. Radio host. Larry elder is leading in those polls. You know it's the last big push we're going to see. President biden out on monday hitting the campaign trail with newsom and a lot of people are saying that this is a big political test of biden's influence as well. We've arrived at election eve so california. Voters all received a ballot in the mail weeks ago. They had the option to mail that back. There now can go to the polls on tuesday. So we've we've sort of already been in election day for week But but you're right. President biden will travel to california this afternoon in order to campaign when newsom. And really what we're seeing here is a bit of a referendum on cove. Ed governor newsom has tried to make this about cova arguing that he has taken the necessary steps to keep california safe. 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 Worst Year Ever
"The strategy from the governor has been just vote no and once you vote no do not choose a replacement which seems classic democrats unb backup plans. Okay so low possible plan plan this plan just a plan. I just need to say that it's a it's a calculation because when governor gray davis was recalled recalled in the post mortem they concluded that having the lieutenant governor cruz bustamante then lieutenant governor on the ballot as a backup confused all the voters and and you know that is why not enough. People voted no picked cruz bustamante. So that's theory the working theory that they took instead of saying like no. Let's just be clear with our language. Let's cody's raise in audio format so i added. This is so like. I feel like we've said this before. On every podcast exists one of the key elements and features that you want out of a leader is communication. That's the thing that leaders should be able to do right so if that is the case the solution is to communicate better so that people are not confused. If the problem is people are confused by this. The solution is communicate to them right and make it not confusing. Look i fucking hope that they were right old. I don't believe that they are. I think it feels very anti democratic to say no. And i refuse to choose another pig because now the situation is very likely that if it passes which by the way at the other part of this yes obviously california is a demo democrat state. We are liberal. Essentially but there are huge pockets. There's a big contingency of of trump supporters of of conservatives. And they are the people that care about this. Meanwhile gavin newsom again not exactly a leader who inspires loyalty during a pandemic when everyone's exhausted. And you know. They're not even like hammering home the importance of what's at stake here so there's a very very high. We know that voter turnout in general will be low except for within the people that care very much about this so right now it's neck it's literally neck and neck. It's a bad situation because the person who is in the front who's the front runner is larry elder. He's a known conservative radio personality in california for decades yes with with a series of abuse and anti climate change. You know anti women anti science anti and this. This rate here is perhaps even outside of the state of california. The thing that everybody needs to pay attention to why everybody's paying attention to this is that dianne feinstein is on death store. I don't know of. that's true. But she is like senile. She's old lots of rumors about yes. I yes i'm getting to that she's retiring potentially even she might decide to retire or she might die at any moment. In that case elder we'll get to replace her and that will entirely change our marginal you know majority in the senate. The senate fundamentally changes senate so this is why eight years old..

"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..

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.

He's got a gun. Uh, yeah. Yeah, This is not gonna end very well. That's why I'm voting for Erik Our city super hyper local Sunday with Brian suits on K F. I see. This is why people are dumb camp. I am fit. 40 live everywhere on the radio at our number two of the super hyper local Sunday On D A Z. I said yesterday a Twitter you know if you block my way into a few blocks hundreds of people's way into Dodger Stadium to get vaccine. That would save the lives and let us get out of this. This self created hell hole. Um Then I just wanna pummel you around the head and shoulders because the year it could be considered assault. You could say you you intended to prevent me from getting a vaccine because of your own beliefs. Anyway, as you saw Um, l a fire department was was able to, uh, re commence the vaccine Ng at Dodger Stadium, etcetera, and because somebody brought a sign that said Recall, Gavin Newsom. Like time just made the anti vaccine protest group yesterday white supremacists because this this is a campaign they have And I just I just noticed that someone who says she is a writer for curbed and New York magazine described yourself as a writer and Walker in L. A. Co host of the podcast Ella USD Mom, You put that in your bio current Ella Jiminy Baba, then she she has to have in our Twitter bio hash tag. People's budget l A hashtag cancel rant hashtag better Busses for L A on that's that idiotic people's budget thing that the L. A unified teachers union. Back and all that, anyway. She she tweeted, calling them anti vaccine protesters makes them make them seem kooky and harmless. They're not anti vaccine is this is a dangerous white supremacist group. That's coordinating attacks like this across L. A in our city leaders aren't doing anything to stop them. Attacks across L. A S so anyway, why shouldn't post picked up the story today? And they linked to the original L A Times story, and now it's become white supremacists, You know, Remember? Remember this time last week? L a Times said that if you've signed the recall Gavin Newsom 2020. Dot com. By the way, I think, I think yes, recall. It's just recode Gavin 2020, anyway. Google it sign it. And let's put it to a vote. But But if you do that you're a white supremacist. I don't care if you're brown, black, corduroy or Paisley, you're now you're an honorary white man. And you're a white supremacist done. Not just you're not not. Not only are you hunky McGill But you're like the bad kind of hunky Miguel, the white supremacist. So this is what the L a times this is. This is out of the source story, um, that this woman's operating on that Not only were the anti vaccines but if you're anti vax or your white supremacists. This'd from yesterday's only times, quote a post on social media described the demonstration as the scam. Democrat protest March. Been advised participants. To quote please refrain from wearing trump maggot attire as we want our statement to resonate with the sheep all no flags, but informational signs. Only. This is a sharing information, protest and march against everything. Cove in vaccine. PCR test lockdowns masks. Fauci Gates Newsome, China. Digital tracking, etcetera, Um, close quote. Daily times goes on. Protesters carried signs that read. Save your soul. Turn back now. CNN is lying to you. Take off your mask and Recall Gavin Newsom, some handed out pamphlets to motorists who had their windows down. That sounds like an attack. So the attack is what is some cars blared their horns on. Don't get me wrong, You know, we saw there was video of them standing in front of cars, and it did shut down the vaccination. So this is where you've crossed the line from protest. To interference with with a medical procedure. I mean, I don't care if I'm getting a boob job or or a nutjob or whatever, Um, don't block my way to the hospital. Because you're You're going to get Five piggies to your snot locker. That's what you're gonna get on and I'll I can I can reason that out by the wagon call it self defense. Anyway. Don't do this because you seem like the only time she's doing there's there is a campaign Tonto save Gavin Newsom, and they're trying to smear the recall effort. As white supremacists. They're trying to suppress minorities who have been hardest hit by California's, uh you could you could say Confiscatory and oppressive. Regulations. They're trying to prevent people most affected by Gavin's lockdowns and Barbara's locked out from signing the recall. I mean, in other words, by the way, They're trying to suppress the vote. Remember? That's the that's the watch. We remember the Republicans were suppressing the vote. And there were suppressing the vote 2016 and suppressing the vote in 2020. If this is not trying to suppress the vote by, Yeah, uh, dissuading people from signing a recall of Gavin that I don't know what it is. When when you smear the recall campaign? Aziz Whites supremacy, Then you're You're interfering with the Democratic private. I don't care if you have an opinion l a times. If you have an opinion, if you really do enjoy the democratic process. Then why are you afraid of one half million people signing a petition and they're being a special ballot to recall Gavin me. What do you afraid of? Are you in the business of protecting him and the entire power structure? Our visitor. Easy way to get a reservation at the French laundry. I I don't know, but it s so anyway. There. You understand? They're far right. If you're carrying a sign that says Recall, Gavin Newsom, you are far right. And if you're far right, you're a white supremacist. So this is maybe news to many of you. But that Zed that works that fell that all pencils out the when when we come back the I gotta tell you driving around Santa Korea. Yesterday. Driving around Burbank yesterday. Um, it it felt like a lot of people maybe thought more things were lifted than they were. But just what I didn't like about this is they've given us.
