Fake News MSM caught lying about coronavirus infection numbers and Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, AOC, Omar, Tlaib and over 100 politicians received dontions from virus test kit suppliers

I was asked the other day if I had been tested for covid-19.  I said “no”. The person said “why?” I responded with “It’s a waste of time and money”

Is getting tested for covid-19 a waste of time?   I’ve listed some basic information about covid-19 that people sometimes overlook.

*Sars cov-2 is the virus that causes covid-19.  In this report, to reduce confusion they both are covid-19.
  1. In the search of a cure, big pharma gets to bypass hurdles that they normally would held up at.  They get to move some of their products with fewer regulations.  This means more profit for them.
  2. “What do you do if you have covid-19?”  Nothing.  If you feels sick enough to want to go to the hospital, then go to the hospital.  If not, you just deal with it until it passes.
  3. There is no cure.
  4. Majority of people, if not all,  that die from covid-19 have underlying problems.  The problem is that when a person dies that has tested for covid-19 they often put the virus as the cause of death.  Even if that person died from underlying problems.
  5. “Testing lets us know if we have it. It will keep us from spreading the virus”.  Maybe.  Is the chance of spreading it worth the damage created by a country shut down?  How many times do we know exactly when we first came in contact with the common cold, the flu, HIV, etc?  The flu kills more people and we never shut down the country.   By the time we realize that we have the flu we could have passed it to hundreds.  Generally speaking, the average person with the flu  isn’t going to go around and give it to other people.  Of course, there are some that will.  Just like the people do with covid-19.
  6. Testing for covid-19 is a waste of time.  After being tested a person has to wait anywhere from 2 to 15 days for the results.  After 15 days you won’t need the results because you will either be sick or not.  If you find you you have it you will be asked if you feel sick.  It depends on who your results are coming from.  If you don’t feel sick you will be told to take care of yourself, stay away from others and go  to the hospital if your condition gets worse.  People that are high risk or have underlying problems may be asked to get themselves checked out.  It really depends on how you feel.  Most people that test positive will not feel anything at all.  This is what they tell people that have the flu
  7. Testing for covid-19 has not cured anyone of the virus.
  8. Hospitalization is pretty much the same for covid-19 victims as they use for people in the hospital because of the flu.
  9. Covid-19  positive people at home are told to do the same as people at home with the flu.  Covid-19 just has a bunch of hype behind it.  Factual evidence is provided toward the end of this article.
  10. There is no way to stop the virus.  The only  way to stop it 100%  is by making everyone in the world stop moving and stand in one place.  If we all stayed in one place, didn’t move an inch for the next 14 to 15 days we would stop the virus from being passed..   We would know who had it and who didn’t.  Then we could separate the infected from the non-infected and wait another 14 to 15 days for it to pass.  Then it will be done.  But that will never happen.  The shut down only slows it down.  It’s not going to stop it.  It’s not going to kill it.
  11. “What about the other things going on that are more dangerous and kill more often?  Do we shut down and hide for those to pass?”  If we did that we would never be able to leave our homes, ever.  That would be stupid.  You will never be able to get things delivered because there wouldn’t be anyone making the products to deliver.  The economy in every country would crash.  Exactly where America is heading.
  12.   Democrats want to keep America locked down for another 5 months. They want everyone to mail in their votes because cheating is the only way they can win.   If they win,  they will step in and “save the country”.  That’s how democrats do it.  They create the problem then step in and act like they are going to fix it.  “Mass shooting were not producing the results they wanted so they ran with this”

Shelter in place for another 5 months? Here’s what Stanford researchers are projecting and why.   CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) — As the Bay Area heads into another weekend of sheltering-in-place due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, many folks are asking how much longer will it take before restrictions are lifted. That’s one of the questions that a Stanford research team set out to answer by developing an interactive tool that models the spread of COVID-19 over time with interventions such as quarantine and social distancing.

“We estimate that shelter-in-place would have to remain in place for about five months or more in order to actually completely suppress the epidemic,” said Stanford biology professor Erin Mordecai.

A 5 month shut down will completely destroy our county.  That is what the democrats want. All I hear is panic that was created by democrats and the MSM .  Just about everywhere I go, all I hear about is testing.  How “we need more test”.  How “more people need to be tested”.  How “we have a shortage of tests”.   Every actor, music artist, athlete, news media outlet, everyone under the control of the democrats are trying their best to convince people that they need to test.  It’s like 1 giant advertising campaign.  And policy is not the only product being sold.

The democrats are not the only ones that have been benefiting off covid-19.  How about the suppliers of the test kits.  I’ve provided a list of some of the top providers of covid-19 supplies. This could be by coincidence but the majority of the suppliers I investigated had made political donations to the democrats.  To be fair,  some have donated to the republican party.  Still,  democrats received more money  than the republican party.

These are a few of the companies that I looked into. .  I listed  the percentage of their contributions that went to the democrats for 2018 and 2020.  On line 1 and 2 you will see a second company listed with no data.  They are owned by the same company listed on that line.  The percentages are the same.

  1. DANAHER CORP.. 88% 2020,  94% 2018.   Integrated DNA Technologies
  2. THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC. PAC.  67% 2020,  56% 2018.  Qiagen
  3. LABCORP.  51% 2020, 34% 2018.
  4. CEPHEID  87% 2020, 94% 2018 .    Also owned by Danaher
  5. HOLOGIC 78% 2020, 54% 2018.

The following are some names of politicians that received donations from 1 or more of the companies listed.  This list is not complete.  It’s about 20%  complete for the companies I researched.  You will see some names listed more than once. That’s because it’s a different company.  I wouldn’t worry about seeing a name once or twice.  4 or more, which there are, I think should be investigated. The last 50 or so names were small donations.  2 were for only 1 dollar.  These were probably just to mask the people receiving the “payoff”.  Dollar for dollar, the democrat party received more money than the republicans by a substantial amount.   Remember that this is a partial list  from less than half of the companies I listed and researched.  There are a lot more suppliers out there.

That’s quite a list.  I’m not sure what to think.   I had to stop looking. But don’t let that stop you from having a look..  You can start at OpenSecrets.com.

Lets take a look at the suppliers.

The following comes from ThomasNet.com Take notice that  they mention a shortage of Covid-19 test kits.   They also mention how “regulations have opened up”.

Currently, there is still a shortage of COVID-19 test kits in the United States. Although originally only the CDC’s test kits were approved for use, more and more resources have become available as regulations have opened up due to the need for more testing.

  • The CDC, despite initially faulty reagents making its first test kits unreliable, is now offering accurate RT-PCR Diagnostic Panels and positive and human specimen controls. These kits should be used only in CLIA certified labs and are meant to be processed with the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast DX Real-Time PCR Instrument with SDS 1.4 software, which is specialized equipment that requires specific training. As of March 14th, public health laboratories using the CDC’s assay to test for the virus aren’t required to get CDC confirmation of their samples.
  • State, academic, and independent labs have been developing kits for their own testing as the FDA has loosened regulations. These labs must still validate their results according to FDA regulations and submit them for emergency use authorization within 15 days.
  • Commercial companies have been increasingly putting coronavirus kits out into the market in recent weeks as regulations have loosened. While some are still very specialized and require specific instrumentation, easier and more automated tests are being developed. Test kits that work in a half hour by simply changing the color of a piece of paper are currently in the concept stage.

Additional shortages in test-related supplies like swabs, virus control samples, and RT-PCR instruments have limited the amount of testing laboratories are capable of. Some labs are awaiting government approval as well, and there is no standard machinery for every test, which means some labs don’t have the equipment for some of the tests available. However, as the FDA has issued emergency approval for more and more tests, the greater variety is allowing more laboratories to start testing with their own equipment, and without the need for special training. Because the need has been so great, the FDA has started allowing companies to distribute tests without official review as of March 16, as long as the manufacturers submit validation and data within 15 days.

Some private companies including Lab Corp and Quest Diagnostics have started offering testing services for the virus already, in addition to state and hospital labs. Many labs are still getting the testing up and running, however, so they aren’t able to test at full capacity yet. 

The following is some basic data on the suppliers and developers.

  1. Thermo Fisher Scientific  The company currently sells emergency use and research use test kits. 
  2. LabCorp Currently offers a test for COVID-19 as well as hundreds of other tests.
  3. Cepheid  Working on a test kit for coronavirus and hopes to release it in the second quarter of this year. 
  4. Hologic  The company, whose test was recently approved and which runs on its Panther Fusion system, is headquartered in Marlborough, MA.
  5. Danaher Test kits are not yet FDA approved, but they can be used by laboratories with CLIA certifications. Company owns  Cepheid, Beckman Coulter, Radiometer, Leica Biosystems, and HemoCue.
  6. Roche Diagnostics  Received emergency approval from the CDC for its coronavirus kits, which use automated equipment that already exists in dozens of laboratories across the U.S. Its kits are now for sale. 
  7. bioMérieux Planning to release 3 tests. One is to be submitted for FDA approval at the end of March, and two others, to be finished by Q2 and Q3, will be automated versions, one of which will also test for 21 other types of viruses. 
  8. Integrated DNA Technologies Currently sells both research only and emergency use coronavirus tests. 
  9. Abbott Laboratories Test approved by the FDA March 18th and has immediately started shipping them out. Tests are run on m2000TM RealTime Systems, which exist in over 175 laboratories and hospitals nationwide. 
  10. Quidel Tests run on existing molecular testing machinery and currently are available for sale.
  11. Qiagen Selling tests to detect COVID-19, ramping up production in its factories to keep up with the demand.
  12. Quest Diagnostics,  offers tests.
  13. Grifols  Offers diagnostics for infectious diseases.
  14.  GenMark Diagnostics  Developed research-only test kits for coronavirus, and is currently applying to the FDA to allow their tests for emergency uses. 
  15. Co-Diagnostics Offering its coronavirus test kits through the CDC’s IRR. 
  16.  Sherlock Biosciences, Developing a paper test that will change color once samples of CRISPR processed DNA from swabs have been applied. They are hoping to submit the test for FDA approval.. 
  17. Philips Sells medical supplies.

I know that I’ve mentioned on several occasions that test kits only equal more positive test results and more covid-19 related deaths.  I discussed why in my post How Fake News MSM and the democrats lied to you about covid-19 testing.  

I’m not going to repeat what I already wrote but I would advise you to go back and review it if you have any problems putting it all together.

I pointed out how what the democrats and the Fake NewsMSM had been reporting the wrong data.  Their counts on people infected with covid-19 and covid-19 causes of death were high.  Complete lies.  They are still doing it today.  Fake news CBS News reported the following,

The coronavirus death toll surpassed 10,000 in the United States on Monday, according to Johns Hopkins University. There are more than 347,000 confirmed cases across the country.

CBS is not  the only Fake News organization reporting these numbers. It’s the same for just about all the Fake News Organizations. To read more of this garbage click here.

The  actual number of deaths are provided in the image.

aprilFor source click CDC.

 

Lets take a look at the actual number of infections.

cases reported

Remember that this report of cases includes presumptive positive test.  These are not confirmed tests.  Explained in the next graphic.

pres

 

At this point we can see the obvious.  The fake news CBS is lying.  Deaths surpassing 10,000 if far more than what the CDC reports at 1,880.  They reported 347,000 confirmed tests. CDC reports 304,926 of both confirmed and unconfirmed.  Already we see Fake news of lying.  If they did their actual job and looked for the real confirmed cases they would come up with the following.

158,700 actual confirmed positive cases. CBS more than doubled the confirmed positive. That’s out of the 1,019,261 total tested.  That’s about 15%  confirmed positive.  This tells  us that 85% of the people being tested come up negative.(Calculated with available data.  Even if data was fully updated the end results, percent ratio will be around the same.)

results

Personally I question the results from commercial labs , but whatever.  We work with what we have.

Given the information available we can calculate what percent of covid-19 related deaths out of the amount of people tested.  1,889/1,019,261=0.0018533035=.18533035 %.  That’s nothing compared to influenza at 8.2 % mortality rate which is above the epidemic rate at 7.2%

Now look at the illness onset.  Does it look like things are getting worse.

 

onset

You will notice in the chart above that there is a decline in illness onset. You should also be seeing a decline in new covid-19 cases as well as covid-19 deaths.  A headline on Bloomberg.com  from April 5, 2020 for example .

New York Reports First Decline in Daily Coronavirus Deaths

Why do you think that is?  It’s because there is a shortage of test kits.  The supply of test kits should start replenishiong. As the inventory grows, more cases will appear.

You should also notice that all the new companies with the new “home tests” are being blocked.    They might get approved in 2 weeks or a month from now  but until then they are going to be blocked.  Some companies get to bypass regulations because of the demand but that does not include the makers of home tests.

 No COVID-19 testing at home yet but quicker options coming

WASHINGTON (AP) — Home testing for the new coronavirus may sound like a good idea, but U.S. regulators say it’s still too risky.

They’ve stopped companies that quickly launched home-testing kits until they can show their products can accurately detect the virus.

For now, the only way Americans can get tested is at hospitals, clinics or drive-thru sites, with a doctor’s order.

After a botched rollout, testing in the U.S. has ramped up thanks to high-volume testing  machines and new rapid tests. Last week, federal officials said total tests -topped 1.4 million, and labs are processing nearly 100,000 tests daily. That’s the threshold many experts say is needed to track the virus.

Coronavirus screening: Calif. COVID-19 task force lead hopes to have enough tests for general public by next month.

The testing space has been a challenging one for us. I own that and I have a responsibility as your governor to do better and to do more testing in the state of California,” said Governor Gavin Newsom.

COVID-19 testing backlog decreased, more testing on the way, Gov. Newsom announces.

Gov. Newsom confirmed over 126,000 people have been tested for COVID-19 and 13,000 of those are still awaiting results. Staggering numbers that led to a state partnership with two California universities and a task force to increase the volume of tests.”Partnership with UC Davis and UC San Diego to create a minimum of 5 to 7 hubs where we will work with different vendors,” said Gov. Newsom.Leading the COVID-19 test task force is Dr. Charity Dean, Assistance director of California’s Public Health Department and Paul Markovich, president and CEO of Blue Shield of California.

East Bay company to have hand-held COVID-19 testing devices ready by next month

Markovich wants to make sure that anyone in need of a test can get one.”We’ve set a goal to get to 10,000 per day in the next two weeks to 25,000 per day by the end of this month. By the end of the summer in August getting to the capacity of 50,000 a day,” said Markovich.An increase of COVID-19 testing will hopefully mean a decrease in deaths. At least 300 people have died of COVID-19 in California.When we asked Markovich for a timeline of when his team plans to have available tests for the general public to get tested he said, “Well if we hit our targets, I would say within a month we should be able to do that. Ideally we want to be in a position to do that as we start relaxing the stay at home measures.”Governor Gavin Newsom also announced that more test sites are set to open. Abbott Laboratories committed to opening 75 testing sites in California. The state also announced the website, covid19supplies.ca.gov, supported by Salesforce.During this supply shortage, the website will allow people and manufacturers to offer resources.

More examples of the “shortages”

Here is what insider Dr Fauci has to say about the “deaths to come”. The following is from time.com.  Generally I don’t like to “copy pasta” a complete article but in this case it is necessary source to make my point.

‘We Are Struggling to Get It Under Control’ Dr. Anthony Fauci Says About the U.S. COVID-19 Outbreak

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top American infectious disease specialist,warned Sunday that the U.S. is “struggling” to curb the outbreak of COVID-19, but said that there are signs that mitigation efforts are working.                                                                                                        In an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation, Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a leading member of President Trump’s coronavirus task force, explained that while the country’s efforts are having an impact, he could not say “we have it under control.” “That would be a false statement. We are struggling to get it under control,” Fauci said. Fauci warned that the rate of new cases will likely get worse before it gets better. While the immediate goal is to reduce the number of new cases, the effects of mitigation efforts would not be visible for “days, if not weeks.” He warned that there is a “bad week” ahead, although the rate of new coronavirus cases may “flatten” by within the week, or somewhat later“As the cases go down, then you get less hospitalizations, less intensive care and less death,” said Fauci. “So even though you’re getting a — really improvement in that the number of new cases are starting to flatten, the death will lag by, you know, one or two weeks or more. So we need to be prepared that even though it’s clear that mitigation is working, we’re still going to see that tail-off of deaths.”                                                                                                                                               Fauci’s comments came the same morning as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the number of deaths has been dropping for the first time in the state, and that there were fewer deaths on Saturday than on Friday. He said that it could be a “blip” in the data— or the “beginning of a shift.”

This is from Fake News CNN

US coronavirus fight enters crucial weeks as the number of cases tops 330,000

(CNN)The next two weeks will be crucial in the United States’ fight against the coronavirus, warn health officials, who are urging Americans to continue practicing social-distancing measures.

Dr Fauci is being made out as some kind of hero by the Fake News MSM and democrats.  When we see this sort of “over the top” praise coming from the Fake News or democrats we should always question the person they are building. With that being said, here is what they used to think about Dr Fauci during the AIDS epidemic.

 

Date: Fri, 12 May 1995 04:16:51 -0400
From:DaveACTUP+@aol.com
Subject: ACT UP zaps Tony Fauci

I was one of the organizers of the action in SF against Fauci. Here is the
text of the flyer that we distributed to the diners at the Project Inform
dinner.

Hope it helps to clarify our position. Take care. ACT UP!

************************************************

"You are responsible for all government funded AIDS treatment research. In
the name of right, you make decisions that cost the lives of others. I call
the decisions you are making acts of murder."
Larry Kramer
"An Open Letter to Dr. Anthony Fauci"
San Francisco Examiner, June 26, 1988

Anthony Fauci, you are a murderer and should not be the guest of honor at any
event that reflects on the past decade of the AIDS crisis. Your refusal to
hear the screams of AIDS activists early in the crisis resulted in the deaths
of thousands of Queers. Your present inaction is causing today's increase in
HIV infection outside of the Queer community.  We are outraged that Project
Inform, an organization that supposedly works on behalf of the infected
community, would insult us by bringing you to our city. You can't hide the
fact that you are nothing but a despicable Reagan-era holdover and drug
company mouthpiece.

With 270,000 dead from AIDS and millions more infected with HIV, you should
not be honored at a dinner. You should be put before a firing squad.

Clinical trials: government sanctioned mass murder of PWAs

Anthony Fauci, you are a murderer because you oversee government sponsored
clinical trials that test and retest combinations of immunosuppressive, toxic
therapies that kill people with HIV. The majority of U.S. clinical trials
involve worthless antivirals like AZT combined with some other drug
(generally another toxic antiviral). What these tests have proven is that you
are able to piss away billions of dollars testing dangerous compounds that DO
NOTHING to improve the quality of life, to stop opportunistic infections or
to extend survival for people with HIV. AZT, 3TC, ddI, ddC, d4T and the
current crop of protease inhibitors are nothing but poison. Ten years of the
plague has shown us that trying to kill the virus kills people with AIDS, and
you, Dr. Fauci, know it.

How long will it take you to start focusing on the immune system, how to
boost it and how to prevent the opportunistic infections that are killing
people with AIDS? Even you admit that "the immune response against HIV is
extremely powerful and is clearly more effective than any of the therapeutic
approaches currently available in controlling virus replication." Still , you
give your blessing to clinical trials of highly profitable toxins that
destroy PWAs' already compromised immune systems.

CD4s and viral load: a marketing exec's wet dream

Anthony Fauci, you are a liar because you have known for years that CD4
counts are a travesty of a surrogate marker that, through drug company
coercion, have been elevated to the status of "a standard." Now that everyone
else knows it too, you and your corporate drug company cronies are urging
researchers to foist another useless marker, peripheral blood viral load
counts, on our frightened, desperate community. Peripheral blood viral load
fluctuates in blood circulation and offers virtually no indication of the
health or disease progression in HIV+ people. According to a recent article
in the April 1995 issue of Lancet concerning viral replication, "the
principle that virus suppression will produce a major clinical benefit must
remain an article of faith." Information like that isn't stopping doctors of
death like Marcus Conant from insisting that "patients should be treated
earlier with combination therapy, and we should be using markers such as PCR
and branched DNA to measure viral load as surrogate markers in clinical
trials."

Your scheme isn't too difficult to figure out; promote another invalid
surrogate marker that has no relation to health or life expectancy of PWAs;
develop a test that costs $200-$300 to measure this invalid marker; encourage
the creation of more deadly drugs that effect this invalid marker; and then
compare the pathetic results you get from these deadly drugs to the more
pathetic results you got from AZT and other nukes. In the eyes of the
government everybody wins. Companies that sell drugs and market tests get
rich and PWAs who sacrifice their bodies in your trials of death are
eliminated from the face of the earth.

The fact that your clinical trials aren't meant to save our lives is no
secret. A December 1994 BETA article "A Remarkable Combination: AZT plus 3TC"
reports that the Phase II/III studies of these drugs were "designed to
evaluate the effect of the combination on laboratory markers of HIV disease
progression, such as viral load and CD4 counts, not critical endpoints, such
as opportunistic infections and survival."

AIDS activists from ACT UP San Francisco and DNCB Now! have been screaming
for over a year that HIV+ people need to activate their cell mediated
immunity and raise their CD8 counts. These activists were invited to the NIH
to present a forum and share their knowledge and experience with researchers.
Finally some researchers are coming around and hearing our voices. Doctors
like Susan Buchbinder who in the August 1994 issue of AIDS stated that
"elevated levels of CD8 cells in healthy long-term HIV+ individuals suggest
that these cells play an important role in delaying disease progression."

Because of your 1995 Annual Review of Immunology article we know that you
know this, Dr. Fauci, but still you prattle on about those CD4s that tell us
nothing at all.

Selling out: from "Murderer" to "Tony"

One thing that 10 years of the plague has taught us is how easily people and
organizations can be bought off. You are one of those people, Dr. Fauci.
Project Inform is one of those organizations. During this time of crisis you
are complacent; part of a government bureaucracy that values thriving
pharmaceutical  company entrepreneurism over the health of people with HIV.

You are a pill-pushing pimp that cooperates with drug companies in forcing
dangerous concoctions down the throats of a desperate community that is
brainwashed into believing that taking a pill, any pill, will help them. AIDS
drugs are not sold to help people, they are sold to make a profit. The
situation is so out of control that drug companies now create and sell drugs
like Marinol, a synthetic derivative of the natural compound marijuana.

The conflict of interest, so apparent between you and the pharmaceutical
corporations, has now been embraced by those in the AIDS community who claim
that they are leaders. In their present state, organizations like Project
Inform, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and ACT UP Golden Gate are all so
embroiled in conflict of interest that they must be viewed as enemies by
PWAs. Project Inform is still pushing AZT. San Francisco AIDS Foundation's
BETA reads like a promo piece for Glaxo. And many of today's so-called AIDS
activists are nothing more than public relations representatives whose job it
is to create a demand for the latest overpriced cure du jour. In the
meantime, grassroots efforts like the AIDS Cure Act are assailed by these
sellout AIDS organizations that have no desire to ever see a cure.

Ten years of hope? Fuck that. Try a decade of death and greed. Go back to
Washington you bastard.

That’s not something the democrats or MSM is going to go out on a limb to show you.  Sure it’s from 1995, but old habits can be hard to break.

Closing Rant

Lets go back to Tuesday, September 11, 2001 2,996 Americans were killed.  Another 25,ooo injured.  America was under attack.  We didn’t know  if more attacks going to happen.  For all we knew our neighbor could have been a terrorist.  There wasn’t any place to hide.  Every single Americans life was in danger.  All the result that came from an enemy that a lot of Americans didn’t know they had.  A unseen enemy that killed more Americans on US soil in modern history.  Was there a stay at home order then? Did we shut down the country?  How about when the swine flu hit America? What about Pearl Harbor when it was attacked by Japan killing 2,403 Americans with another 1,143 injured(Japan didn’t want to attack because they knew every American owned a gun)?

  “Much of the Pacific fleet was rendered useless: Five of eight battleships, three destroyers, and seven other ships were sunk or severely damaged, and more than 200 aircraft were destroyed”.   

Was this enough to make people stay at home and shut down the country?  The answer is no in all cases.  Think about it.  Almost 3,000 people were killed.  25,000 iunjured plus a strike on the Pentagon,  the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense,  wasn’t enough to shut the country down.  Why?  Because shutting down the country would cause more damage that the current danger they were facing.  This was something everyone could agree on.

  So what changed?  Why did the democrats and the MSM lie to every American and create a situation where Trump had to take such extreme actions.   By creating fear and panic, the democrats and MSM were able create a situation that limited Trump’s options.  The democrats wanted and still are trying to destroy President Trump and America.  What changed is that we have the democrats conspiring with the MSM, working to overthrow our government.  4 years of nonstop attacks on a sitting US President. 

That’s not “oversite.” There is no just cause to investigate the President.   Yet the democrats and MSM continue to work against the will of the people.  Against our president.  With total disregard for the damage they have inflicted on our country.   That’s an attack on our whole way of life.  Attacking a US President is the same as attacking every American.  The democrats and the MSM  are guilty of Treason and Espionage and so much more. 

By now people should be able to see what the democrats are up to.  They are fully exploiting the covid-19 situation.  I personally believe the democrats and the MSM are responsible for the existence  of the covid-19 pandemic.   So I’m renaming  covid-19 since it’s 2020.  Covid-19 is now DNCLIE-20 or MSMFN-20

Besides the economy, I believe we have a danger far worse then the pandemic will ever be.  That’s if the democrats are able to get control of the White House.  How?  by doing what I’ve been warning about for the last 4 years.  It’s how they won California.  If you have been paying attention you will see the democrats are pushing the shut down for a longer period of time.  They are also pushing early voting by mail or voting by mail in general.  This is the main cheat the democrats use to win elections. They’re trying to convince people that voting by mail is more secure.  Lie and scare them into submission.

It’s extremely easy to vote by mail.  I’ll give you an example.  I vote by mail.  I registered and voted without ever providing 1 piece of evidence.  For the primaries in California, I just wrote my info down and mailed it in.  I did the same in 2016.  Things went a little different that year.  They asked for proof of who I was.  I ignored them but still got a ballot.  

The democrats  are using the MSM, Hollywood, Academia, Social Media, everybody and everything in their control to continue to lie to America and create more panic.  I can hear it now, “Stay home or covid-19, the planet killer will get you”,  “hide in your homes”, “We want you to feel safe when you vote”.  Deceiving Americans as they manipulate the ballots, spread lies about Trump, steal from the government and  do their best to crash the economy.  Then if successful, blame Trump for the damage.  The democrats are all in.  Using covid-19 as a political tool is not below the democrats.  If you believe in freedom, justice, equality and liberty then there is no way you can allow any democrat to gain complete control of the usa. 

Things to think about

Forget about my personal comments and look at the facts I presented today.  Mainly look at the amount of deaths are being reported, actual confirmed cases and real mortality rate.  Look at all the politicians that have recieved donations from the test kit manufactures.  Look at the push to buy test kits.  Look at behind  pushing a longer shut down. Do you believe the test are a waste of time?  Are we already infected with a type of coronavirus and the wuhan virus has nothing to do with the strains discovered here in the USA? Do you believe that democrats are conspiring with the MSM?  Do you think this shut down creating a more problems then we would have if we just let covid-19 run it;s course? Do you believe that the democrats want to force mail in voting so they can cheat?  Do you believe that the democrats are exploiting the pandemic?  Do you believe Dr. Fauci is an insider working with the democrats?  Do you believe the democrats and the MSM are causing people th panic?  Do you believe that President Trump is getting all the relevent information he needs?  Do you think that his advisors, staff, etc are doing a good job at keeping him informed?  Do you believe the pandemic is a distraction? How about a  smokescreen created by the democrats with help from foreign governments? Do you blame China for the pandemic or does it come from US Soil?  Do you feel this may be a way to destroy the economy worldwide?  One thing that should be perfectly clear is is that shut down needs to end and justice needs to be served.

Please tell me your thoughts

Kincade fire revisited

On October 23,2019 a fire ignited in Northern California. The location was next to John Kincade Road. southeast of the town of Cloverdale in Sonoma county. A place that I am very familiar. It’s where I grew up and called home for many years..  Spending about 35 years in Sonoma county(home of the Bohemian Grove) , there are few places within the county I haven’t left my footprint. That would include The Geysers geothermal field located in California’s Mayacamas Mountains which John Kincade Road passes through. The birth of the Kincade Fire.
Cal fire reports fire starting at 9:27 pm..  If you do a Google search you will find the media reporting start times at 9:24 pn and 9:27 pm.   When the fire was called in, we are told the caller reported a power line was down.  The caller or  the report of the power line being down has not been confirmed.   Unconfirmed or not , the media still reports it as if it were factual evidence.  The media is also leading people to believe it was at a location of a PG & E  high power transmission tower PG &E claims that one of its  lines e failed  at exactly 9:20 pm.   Four  or seven  minutes (depending which media organization is reporting it) before the fire started.  Here is a photo of  the tower and the location. Image 1A
tower

Image 1A

There is a video that is being circulated that shows the exact time and location the fire started.  The various media organizations claim this  video proves where, how, why and when the fire started.  They insinuate the power line broke on the transmission line tower, shut the light off at powerplant  building (seen in the photo) and that the broken power line started the fire 4 minutes or 7 minutes later,  at that very location.  I’m going to use that video and show you that the fire started at/or  before their 4 minute or  7 minute claim.  I’ll also show you that the fire ignited at a different location. Vindicating PG & E for being the cause of this fire.

The video they/we are using was filmed from around 20 to 21 miles away.  The camera was located on a tower in Santa Rosa.  It’s part of a network of cameras placed throughout California set up to spot fires. The  Image 2A is a nightshot of the location of the transmission tower from 20 miles away.    The bright light is the location of the building by the transmission tower.  On the right in the image there is a map.  The yellow triangle at the bottom is the camera’s location and the yellow balloon is where the light is located at.  This is the camera that captured the frames in the video.

camloc3

Image 2A

The  video is a time lapse video.  It’s presented at a higher speed. When played at the speed presented, it appears that the light went out and the fire started at the same location.  I’ve provided the video below.

The video can be deceiving when only viewed at the higher speed. What I did was slow the video down, closer to actual time, to get a better understanding of  the actual time the fire bwecame visable.  I managed to capture four frames back to back. One frame was at 21:19:51(the last time the light was on).  Next frame was at 21:19:55(no light, no fire visable).   Next frame was at 21:20:09(first time fire becomes visable but difficult to see so I tossed it).  Final frame is at 21:20:13(when the fire becomes clearly visable).

Keeping three frames I stacked them  frame by frame so that you can see all three events occurred within a 18 second time period.  Image 3A  The bottom frame is when the fire becomes visable.  The middle frame(red box) shows the time between the light being visable and the fire being visable.  The top frame show the last time the light was visable. Notice the times.  The fire becomes visable within 18 seconds after the light shut off.  Proving the fire started long before 9:24 pm or 9:27 pm. There was no 4 or 7 minutes later.  Also, notice the locations of the light and the fire.  Two different locations.  Remember, this is being filmed from 20 miles away.  The fire and light appear close together.  As you get closer to the event, the distance between the two locations is far greater.

Image 3A

In the next image I took 1/2 of the first frame and 1/2 the last frame and matched them together to show the 2 different locations. Image 4A

Image 4A

The video and images clearly show that the fire started at a different loication and long beforew the 4 or 7 minutes. So where was the ignition point?  Taking the informatioin I had available, I did the following. I knew the distance from the camera was around 20 to 21 miles away. The angle was about 2 degrees difference between the fire and the light.  I used the method in Image 5A and came up with the results in Image 6A.

Image 5A

In Image 6A the red ballon is the location of the powereplant building with the light that shut off and the transmission tower that supposedly started the fire.  My results led me to believe  fire started in the area circled in green.  My location is pretty close to the location Cal Fire post as being the ignition point of the fire as seen in  Image 7A( Cal Fire, red ballon. The blue circle is location  the media is pushing).

image 7A

Something I should also mention is that the fire became visable from 20 miles away within 18 seconds.  The fire had to have been burning a lot longer than 18 seconds to be visable at that distance.  The only other way to get a fire to flash that quickly is by using  an accelerant.  In the case of an accelerant, there would have been a huge flash when the fire was ignited.  Exactly what a witness in this next video mentioned.

Additional talking points

Calpine

The media is focused on that single location as being to ignition point.  Why don’t they put some attention on the owner of the powerplant building where the light shut off?  The owner is Calpine.  Calpine ownes the majority of the powerplants at The Geysers.  They claim to have shut their facilities down due to high winds.  Why?  Winds have zero effect on geothermal plants.  PG & E owns all the high power transmission lines.  Wind would have no impact on the powerplant.  Also, the powerplants generate their own power.  PG &E high power transmission line failing would not shut the lights off at the power plant.  Even if it was connected to the plant.  Powerplants provide electricity to PG &E, not the opposite way around..  Any line failure of PG &E would never shut the power off at the powerplant.

Calpine is owned by Energy Capital Partrners(ECP). ECP has owned assets in every major power market in the USA. Their portfolio can be viewed here.

Cal Fire

It’ was fairly easy to eliminate the transmission tower as being the cause of the fire.  Why doesn’t Cal Fire speak up?

Cal Fire resources  .

“CAL FIRE owns and operates over 3,000 fire and emergency response and resource protection vehicles. In support of its ground forces, the CAL FIRE emergency response air program includes 23 Grumman S-2T 1,200 gallon airtankers, 11 UH-1H Super Huey helicopters, and 14 OV-10A airtactical. From 13 air attack and nine helitack bases located statewide, aircraft can reach most fires within 20 minutes”.

In addition I found the following.  They have 61 dozers,  50 fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft which include  , 2 Air King A200 and   1 or more of the  following, Dornier Do-228, C-23A Sherpa (SD3-30), Air Tractor AT-802A “FireBoss” ,  Grumman S-2T, Lockheed P-2 Neptune, CL-215/ Bombardier 415 “Superscooper”, Douglas DC-7,McDonnell Douglas MD-87, British Aerospace Bae 146/ Avro RJ85, L188 Electra,  Lockheed C-130 Hercules, Boeing 747, DC-10,  AH-1 Firewatch “Cobra” ,Sikorsky S-61, Sikorsky S-64, Sikorsky S -70 “Firehawk”,Eurocopter AS-332L,  Boeing-Vertol BV 107, Boeing 234 “Chinook”, Kaman “K-Max”, Bell 212, Bell 205 A++, Bell 412, Bell 407, Bell 206B “JetRanger”,  Bell 206L-III “LongRanger”, Eurocopter AS350 AStar, MD 500D,    Aérospatiale SA 315B “Lama”, Alouette 316B, Lockheed C-130, UH -60 “Blackhawk”, Boeing CH-46 “Sea Knight”, CH -47 “Chinook”, Sikorsky CH-53E “Super Stallion” (Sikorsky S-80E).  For details click here.

Cal Fire’s budget is up to 2.6 billion dollars.

Besides wondering why Cal Fire has all the military class aircraft that we never see,   I have to ask ” with all the money spent on Cal Fire and the inventory of helicopters and dozers that they own,  why did the decide to contract out for fire suppression instead of using their own inventory?”  Cal Fire didn’t use any of their dozers or helicopters for the kincade fire,

California has become a “hustling ground” for the state leadership(Democrats).   Clearly it looks as if they are using Cal Fire and  fire disasters to scame money out of Californians as well as tax payers throughout the USA.  The residents in California end up suffering the most.  Cal Fire knows exactly what caused the Kincade fire. Democrats have made it clear that they want to control/ownership the power supply in California.  Cal Fire’s silence only helps them attain that goal.  Cal Fire’s leadership is a joke.  Back in the day we used to have smoke jumpers that would have shut this fire down. Where are they?  More time was spent talking about, watching the fire then was spent on fighting it.  Totally disgusting.  Having some experience fighting forest fires I understand it’s difficult work so I commend those that actually fought the fire. My appreciation goes out to you.

I am in no way a fan of PG &E.  I am far less a fan of the democrat leadership.   It would be nice to see a little bit of integrity coming from their way. I don’t believe for one second that PG &E is responsible for the Kincade fire.  PG &E had shut the power down at 5:00 pm earlier that day. The light we saw in the video had to be running on the powerplants own electricity. Also, the high power transmission lines are built to handle winds up to 145 mph.  Another thing that never gets mentioned is that there are other companies that have power lines in the same area.

PG &E initiated its power shut offs were more than likely done because high winds automatically shut down their wind generators thoughout the state.  It wasn’t fire they were worried about.  They were worried about not being able to supply the power needed.

The high winds have zero to do with climate change,  If a person wants to know what causes the weather all they would need to do is see who was flying “weather modification” missions earlier that week.  That’s the cause of California droughts and all the dead trees through out California.  That’s why we have man made aluminum dust covering a large part of the state.

My last to thoughts today are “Never believe anything that comes out of the mouth of a California politician or State official, at any level.  They are always lying to you” and “The fire evacuations during the Kincade fire were not done to save people.  They were done because they didn’t want you to see what they were doing.”   Even if you saw something…….

More than 100 of the approximately 430 cell sites in Sonoma County were knocked out of service because of a loss of power Monday, the peak day for cellphone network outages during the 11-day period since the Kincade fire erupted on Oct. 23, according to Federal Communications Commission records.

Sanctuary California: Illegal alien shoots deputy, sparks manhunt & chase

From Fox News: A California sheriff is calling for immigration reform in his state after he says sanctuary city policies freed a violent illegal immigrant who went on to shoot a police officer and lead cops on a wild, high-speed chase.

Guadalupe Lopez-Herrara, 51, was taken into custody Thursday, a day after the Merced County’s Sheriff’s Office says Lopez-Herrara shot a deputy attempting to arrest him for allegedly violating a restraining order, FOX26 reported.

“This person is not a legal citizen within the United States,” Merced Sheriff Van Warnke said at a press conference Thursday. “We had him in our custody in January of this year. And because of the folks in Sacramento limiting our ability to cooperate with ICE, we could not turn him over.

The deputy, a sergeant with the sheriff’s office, sustained non-life threatening injuries after police say Lopez-Herrara, described as a known violent criminal, shot him in the leg and vest Wednesday.

A shootout subsequently broke out between Lopez-Herrara and deputies — but Lopez-Herrara managed to hide behind shrubbery and open fire, pinning down cops long enough to allow his escape.

Several law enforcement agencies launched a manhunt but were unable to locate him until the following morning. A high-speed pursuit ensued after Lopez-Herrara was spotted in a stolen truck on Highway 46, FOX26 reported.

The chase — which reached speeds of 120 mph — ended when Lopez-Herrara hit a spike strip.

Police say Lopez-Herrera fired shots at them from inside the vehicle, but he was stopped by a K-9 and taken into custody.

“Bottom line is our immigration policies need to be revamped because we’re gonna continue to have more of this situation happen…We knew ahead of time this guy’s potential for violence was there,” Warnke said.

Sanctuary city laws in California have limited local law enforcement’s ability to convey information to federal agencies about illegal immigrants taken into their custody.

Warnke said Lopez-Herrara has a violent history that includes assault with a deadly weapon, felony assault, spousal abuse and possession of narcotics.

He is currently being held at the Merced County Jail.

Petition to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom

There is a petition on Change.org to recall California governor Gavin Newsom.

The petition says:

Governor Gavin Newsom in addition to Governor Jerry Brown have declared California a Sanctuary State, importing illegal immigrants to replace the people of California, and give them California’s tax payer funded goods and services in order to alter the voting demographics against Americans, and in favor of Democrats.

Recently, in 2019 within months of taking office, Governor Gavin Newsom pulled troops off the southern border when President Trump attempted to stop illegal immigrant caravans from entering the United States which threaten all of the United States not just California, and continues to allow immigrants to flow into California threw the Southern border.

Because Democrat Governor Jerry Brown and his Lieutenant Governor, now Governor Gavin Newsom declared California a Sanctuary State.  These policies have rapidly increased California prison population and homeless encampments with illegal immigrants, and impacted public schools, and prohibit State Law Enforcement to cooperate with Federal Law Enforcement, ie ICE who’s job is to deport illegal immigrant criminal offenders.

Californians did not vote for Sanctuary Cities, or for California to feud with President Trump to bring in illegal immigrants to replace Californian citizens.

Therefore, here is a petition to Recall Governor Gavin Newsom.  If you agree please sign the Petition.

Thank you for your time.  Make California Great Again!

For more information on the process to recall a California Governor, goto: https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/recalls/procedure-recalling-state-and-local-officials/

The Last Californian Governor to be recalled was Governor Gray Davis, who was replaced by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FES7QLDVLKo&t=69s

As of the writing of this post, 22,031 have signed the petition. The goal is 25,000 signatures.

Federal judge strikes down California’s ban on “high-capacity” magazines

A voice of reason in CA: Judge Benitez

The judge was born in Cuba and appointed by GWB.

From Daily Mail: A federal judge declared California’s ban on high-capacity gun magazines over 10 rounds as unconstitutional on Friday, following a lawsuit by the state’s arm of the National Rifle Association.

On Friday San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez ruled the law against high-capacity gun magazines was unconstitutional, blocking the state from enforcing the voter-approved ban outlined California’s Proposition 63.

The proposition was made to prevent the use of such magazines, which are often used in mass shootings and passed on the November 8, 2016 ballot.

California law has prohibited buying or selling of magazines with over 10 rounds since 2000, but those who had them before then were allowed to keep them.

In 2016, the Legislature and voters approved a law removing that provision.

The California arm of the National Rifle Association then sued and Benitez sided with the group’s argument that banning the magazines infringes on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

He cited stories of three women confronted by armed intruders in their homes. The woman with a high capacity magazine was able to kill an intruder and call for help, while the two other women ran out of bullets.

‘Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,’ Benitez wrote in his 86-page order as he declared the law to be unconstitutional, granting a summary judgement in favor of gun owner Virginia Duncan and the California Pistol & Rifle Association.

Benitez cited the stories of three women who were at their homes in Florida and Georgia and were shot by gun-weilding intruders who broke into their homes. He suggested that the women were unable to stop the assailants because they had lower capacity guns to defend themselves.

You say high capacity; I say standard and necessary!

In one case a pajama-clad woman who had a high-capacity magazine attached to her weapon was able to take on three armed intruders, while simultaneously calling for help on her phone.

In the other two cases the women without additional ammunition ran out of bullets.

‘She had no place to carry an extra magazine and no way to reload because her left hand held the phone with which she was still trying to call 911,’ the judge wrote, saying she killed one attacker while two escaped.

Chuck Michel, an attorney for the NRA and the California Rifle & Pistol Association, said the judge’s latest ruling may go much farther by striking down the entire ban, allowing individuals to legally acquire high-capacity magazines for the first time in nearly two decades.

‘We’re still digesting the opinion but it appears to us that he struck down both the latest ban on possessing by those who are grandfathered in, but also said that everyone has a right to acquire one,’ Michel said.

Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement that his office is ‘committed to defending California’s common sense gun laws’ and is reviewing the decision and evaluating its next steps.

‘Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,’ Benitez wrote in his 86-page order as he declared the ban on high capacity magazines to be unconstitutional.

Call these legislators to stop California’s water tax

With the election of Democrat Gavin Newsom as governor, and of Demonrats to a majority in California’s State Assembly (61 D, 19 R) and Senate (28 D, 10 R), socialist California hurtles further down what economist Friedrich Hayek called “the road to serfdom”.

As DCG reported in her post of January 13, 2019, Newsom proposed in the 2019-20 state budget a new water tax, euphemistically called the “safe and affordable drinking water fund” that would “enable the State Water Resources Control Board to assist communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, in paying for the short-term and long-term costs of obtaining access to safe and affordable drinking water.”

The details of the proposed tax are unknown, but a similar proposal was abandoned by then-Governor Jerry Brown last year after failing to garner enough support in the legislature. Under Brown’s plan, California residents would have been taxed 95 cents a month, or $11.40 a year.

In a Facebook post, Konstantinos Roditis, Vice Chairman of Reform California and the 2018 Republican nominee for California State Controller, writes:

Despite California’s cost of living being unsustainable, Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to add yet ANOTHER tax — this time on your water. Between the gas tax, a car tax, and even a tax on text messages (which we killed), Gavin Newsom and weak Sacramento politicians like the ones below are coming right for your wallet…again.

We’re launching a massive campaign to make sure that these Water Tax Weaklings vote NO on the Water Tax.

The legislators to contact are:

  1. Sen. Anna Caballero (D-Salinas)
  2. Assembly member Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside)
  3. Assembly member Tasha Horvath (D-Encinitas)
  4. Assembly member Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks)
  5. Assembly member Brian Maienschein (R to D – San Dieg0): This POS changed parties from Republican to Democrat on Jan. 24, 2019, after he was elected.
  6. Assembly member Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Laguna Beach)
  7. Assembly member Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Fullerton)
  8. Assembly member James Ramos (D-Highland)
  9. Sen. Richard Roth (D-Riverside)
  10. Assembly member Christy Smith (D-Santa Clarita)
  11. Sen. Tom Umberg (D-Santa Ana)

CA Gov. Newsom pushes new health care plan to help illegal aliens

Elections have con$equences.

From Fox News: Shortly after he took office on Monday, California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom unearthed an unprecedented new health care agenda for his state, aimed at offering dramatically more benefits to illegal immigrants and protecting the embattled Affordable Care Act, which a federal judge recently struck down as unconstitutional.

The sweeping proposal appeared destined to push California — already one of the nation’s most liberal states — even further to the left, as progressive Democrats there won a veto-proof supermajority in the state legislature in November and control all statewide offices.

“People’s lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe — they all hang in the balance,” Newsom, 51, told supporters Monday in a tent outside the state Capitol building, as he discussed his plans to address issues from homelessness to criminal justice and the environment. “The country is watching us, the world is watching us. The future depends on us, and we will seize this moment.”

Newsom unveiled his new health-care plan hours after a protester interrupted his swearing-in ceremony to protest the murder of police Cpl. Ronil Singh shortly after Christmas Day. The suspect in Singh’s killing is an illegal immigrant with several prior arrests, and Republicans have charged that so-called “sanctuary state” policies, like the ones Newsom has championed, contributed to the murder by prohibiting state police from cooperating with federal immigration officials.

As one of his first orders of business, Newsom — who also on Monday requested that the Trump administration cooperate in the state’s efforts to convert to a single-payer system, even as he bashed the White House as corrupt and immoral — declared his intent to reinstate the ObamaCare individual mandate at the state level.

The mandate forces individuals to purchase health care coverage or pay a fee that the Supreme Court described in 2012 as a “tax,” rather than a “penalty” that would have run afoul of Congress’ authority under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Last month, though, a federal judge in Texas ruled the individual mandate no longer was a constitutional exercise of Congress’ taxing power because Republicans had passed legislation eliminating the tax entirely — a move, the judge said, that rendered the entire health-care law unworkable.

As that ruling works its way to what analysts say will be an inevitable Supreme Court showdown, Newsom said he would reimpose it in order to subsidize state health care.

Medi-Cal, the state’s health insurance program, now will let illegal immigrants remain on the rolls until they are 26, according to Newsom’s new agenda. The previous age cutoff was 19, as The Sacramento Bee reported.

Additionally, Newsom announced he would sign an executive order dramatically expanding the state’s Department of Health Care Services authority to negotiate drug prices, in the hopes of lowering prescription drug costs.
In his inaugural remarks, Newsom hinted that he intended to abandon the relative fiscal restraint that marked the most recent tenure of his predecessor, Jerry Brown, from 2011 to 2019. Brown sometimes rebuked progressive efforts to spend big on various social programs.

“For eight years, California has built a foundation of rock,” Newsom said. “Our job now is not to rest on that foundation. It is to build our house upon it.”

Newsom added that California will not have “one house for the rich and one for the poor, or one for the native-born and one for the rest.”

In a statement, the California Immigrant Policy Center backed Newsom’s agenda.

“Making sure healthcare is affordable and accessible for every Californian, including undocumented community members whom the federal government has unjustly shut out of care, is essential to reaching that vision for our future,” the organization said. “Today’s announcement is an historic step on the road toward health justice (First time I’ve heard of “health justice.” Liberals always love to distort language.) for all.”

Gavin Newsom addresses his affair in context of #MeToo era

gavin newsom sabo art
One little detail Newsom didn’t mention in his “#MeToo” moment: The woman Newsom had an affair with, Ruby Rippey-Tourk, was the wife of his friend and campaign manager, Alex Tourk.
From SF Gate: In the backdrop of the #MeToo movement, when several politicians have been routed from office for sexually inappropriate behavior from years ago, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom offered an answer for voters who might be hesitant to support him for governor because of a 2007 affair he had with a subordinate while he was mayor of San Francisco.
“I would say the same thing that I said (then) to the voters in San Francisco: that I acknowledged it. I apologized for it. I learned an enormous amount from it,” Newsom said Monday during an onstage interview at the University of San Francisco. “And I am every day trying to be a champion and a model — not just for women and girls — but to deal with the issue that we need to focus on, which is the crisis with men and boys in this state and in this country.” He described a culture of “toxic masculinity” where men are responsible for much of the violence in the nation.
In 2007, Newsom — who was then separated from his first wife, Kimberly Guilfoyle — publicly apologized for having a consensual affair with Ruby Rippey-Tourk, who was then his commission appointments secretary.
A subsequent City Attorney’s Office report into whether it was proper for Rippey-Tourk to receive $10,154 in “catastrophic illness pay” from the city after she left her job after the affair, uncovered nothing illegal, but raised questions about whether she should have been eligible for the payments. According to the report, the pay was based on her acceptance into the city’s Catastrophic Illness Program, or CIP.
The report said it is supposed to be offered to employees with “a life-threatening illness or injury, as determined by the Department of Public Health” to “reduce hardship and suffering of catastrophically ill city employees.” The report questioned whether Rippey-Tourk, who took leave from City Hall in May 2006 to enter a substance abuse program, should have been eligible for that program.
Newsom was speaking Thursday at the University of San Francisco as part of the university’s series of one-on-one interviews with the top gubernatorial candidates co-sponsored by Politico and the school’s Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good.
Asked by Politico’s Carla Marinucci, who conducted the interview, whether he had any similar transgressions since that time, Newsom said, “Of course not.”
He applauded the courage of the women who have publicly called out inappropriate sexual behavior in Sacramento.
Last week, the state Senate and Assembly released documents revealing 20 substantiated complaints of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior against lawmakers or high-level legislative staffers over the past 12 years. They included cases against six current and former elected officials, including one of Newsom’s gubernatorial candidate rivals — Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach (Orange County). Allen was found to have routinely gotten “unnecessarily close” to one female staffer in 2013, including sitting close to her while sliding his foot to touch hers.
In a statement, Allen said, “There has never been anything in any of my actions that has been inappropriate, and nor will there ever be.”
On policy, Newsom said Monday that he would make addressing homelessness a focus of his governorship and outlined several ways he would address the problem, including appointing a statewide homeless czar (Hey Newsom: See Seattle and how well that idea has worked for them).
That leadership has been lacking for decades in California,” Newsom said. “There has been no intentionality supporting local and regional efforts to address the issue of homelessness emanating from Sacramento. None. There are no statewide goals to end homelessness. There is no vision to end homelessness in the state of California.
“I’m going to step up significantly on this issue,” he said.
With $19.5 million in the bank, Newsom has a vast fundraising lead over his opponents and is the early poll leader, too. Newsom was the top choice of 26 percent of the likely voters responding to a December 2017 Berkeley IGS Poll, with Villaraigosa at 17 percent. Two Republicans — Rancho Santa Fe businessman John Cox and Allen, R-Huntington Beach — each grabbed 9 percent, with Chiang and former Superintendent of Public Instruction Eastin each getting 5 percent. Another candidate, former Sacramento-area GOP Rep. Doug Ose, entered the race in January and was not included in the polling.

California sheriffs oppose Gavin Newsom’s gun control initiative

There’s still some common sense in California.

Gun grabber Newsom

Gun grabber Newsom


California sheriffs announced Monday that they are opposing Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s gun-control measure aimed for the fall ballot, arguing it would not prevent criminals from obtaining guns and ammunition via the black market or theft, according to the Sacramento Bee.
Instead, the proposal would place additional restrictions on law-abiding people who want to buy ammunition for recreational use, retain guns and magazines that are currently legal or pass down historical or family heirlooms, the California State Sheriffs’ Association wrote in a letter to Newsom’s campaign.
“Effectively, this measure will create a new class of criminals out of those that already comply with common sense practices that now exist,” wrote President Martin Ryan, Amador County sheriff and PAC Chair Gregory J. Ahern, Alameda County sheriff . “The focus of efforts to reduce gun violence in this state should be on those responsible for that violence, not those that have no intent to do harm.”
The sheriffs note that they remain supportive of domestic violence restraining orders, existing background checks and waiting periods to purchase firearms.
But their position on the measure could add institutional heft to a coalition led by gun-rights groups. The chief critic to date had been the California Rifle & Pistol Association, whose Coalition for Civil Liberties considers the planned measure the biggest threat to gun rights in California in more than three decades.
Newsom’s proposal, which must collect 366,000 signatures to qualify for the November ballot, would require most people to pass background checks to buy ammunition, sales of which must be made through licensed vendors and reported to the Department of Justice.
While California has some of the nation’s most restrictive firearms policies, including a 1999 ban on assault weapons, it would expand that prohibition to high-capacity magazines grandfathered in by the law. If it passes, the owners would need to sell them to a licensed dealer, transfer them out of the state or turn them in to law enforcement to be disposed of.

Newsom is working with the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and their bid is backed by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the mayors of San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose and others.
