Last week I noted the utter disregard Gavin Newsom and his fellow progressive communist democrats has for California as they engage in lawfare to subvert the will of the people.

Once again, we see a disconnect between progressive communist democrat Governor Gavin Newsom’s uniparty, which believes you are too stupid to know what’s good for you, and the California citizens who are fed up with crime and drug use and are demanding more input into the governance process. 

The two essential ballot initiatives at issue are:

  • Taxes: The Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act would require voter approval for taxes and regulatory actions that increase state revenues.
  • Crime: Proposition 47 Reforms would roll back the egregious parts of Proposition 47 that reduced penalties for theft and drug crimes in California, including pervasive retail theft and drug use.

While the progressive communist democrats claim they support the middle class and represent their constituency, they pander to the disaffected minorities that constitute their voter coalition and the billionaire oligarchs who pump millions into their campaigns, with special deference to the malevolent George Soros, who has funded many disruptive pro-criminal initiatives and District Attorneys.

Democrats are attempting to preserve perpetual political power and systemic progressive communist democrat corruption.

Gavin Newsom Claims “Voters Don’t Have Capacity” to Decide on Tax Hikes

This week Governor Gavin Newsom asked the California Supreme Court to block the California Taxpayer Protection Initiative from the November ballot. Newsom argued that “voters simply do not have the capacity” to decide on “complicated” matters like tax hikes.

California Governor Gavin Newsom was confronted in court this week as he seeks to block the California Taxpayer Protection Initiative (CTPI) from appearing on the November 2024 ballot.

In a stunning argument at a hearing this week before the CA Supreme Court, Gavin Newsom’s legal team argued that voters are too stupid to decide on important issues like tax hikes! “The voters simply don’t have the capacity,” claimed Margaret Prinzing, attorney for Gov. Gavin Newsom.

“Governor Gavin Newsom not only created a massive budget deficit, but he has raised taxes so high that he has destroyed jobs and caused millions of middle-class residents to flee the state’s high-cost-of-living,” says Carl DeMaio, Chairman of Reform California.

For Newsom to argue he and state politicians are somehow smarter than the voters is patently offensive,” DeMaio added.

In October, Newsom and state Democrats filed for an “Emergency Injunction” from the liberal-dominated California Supreme Court to prohibit voters from even voting on the CTPI in the November 2024 election – despite the fact that citizens collected the required 1 million signatures to force the issue onto the ballot. <Source>

It just got worse…

Gavin Newsom Gets a Big Win, Screws Over 'Democracy'

Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom will do anything to keep initiatives that might restore sanity to the state's government (or protect its citizens, or lower the cost of living) off the ballot, and he scored a major victory Thursday morning when the California Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act cannot appear on November's ballot.

“From the founding of the state, the Legislature has had the supreme power of taxation,” Margaret Prinzing, an attorney representing the state, told the court. “This measure would revoke that power for the first time in the history of California and instead put it in the hands of the voters.”

Prinzing argued that, rather than simply amending tax law in the state constitution, this would fundamentally restructure how government operates — a more substantial change that can only be proposed by a two-thirds vote of the Legislature or through a constitutional convention.

Justice Goodwin Liu pressed the lawyer for the initiative’s proponent, the California Business Roundtable, about that idea repeatedly during the hour-long hearing. He asked at one point whether giving voters authority over state taxes would create a fourth branch of government.

“Doesn’t this measure essentially shift us from a republican form of government far more strongly towards a direct democracy, given how fundamental the taxing power is?” Liu said.

The only solution…

The ONLY solution now resides with Californians who must overcome their tendency to vote for progressive communist democrats who pander to criminals and illegal aliens at the expense of Californians. They must be removed from office and held accountable for what they have done to our formerly Golden State—turning San Francisco into a feces-laden drug den  and Los Angeles into Little Tijuana.


Governor Newsom oozes a toxic charisma, a repellent blend of arrogance and deceit. His smile, a practiced curve of polished teeth, never reached his eyes, which always appear cold and calculating. Like Bobby Blowdry, the no-rating anchor of a fifth-rate television channel in a nothing marketplace, his over-gelled hair is a joke.

Every word he speaks drips with false promises and barely veiled contempt for those he deems beneath him—essentially, everyone.

His campaign is a masterclass in progressive communist democrat manipulation, fueled by dark money and whispered threats.

The air around Newsom seems to darken with his presence, a palpable haze of corruption and ambition. He is another Democrat who thrived on division, sowing seeds of distrust with every handshake and hollow vow, leaving a trail of moral decay in his wake.

Sununu slams Dem governors: Newsom’s ‘just a prick’
“And I’ve got to be honest, no one cares for Gavin,” Sununu said.

During a fireside chat at the Reagan Institute Summit on Education in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Sununu was asked by moderator Fred Ryan who were the governors “no one really cared for.” And Sununu did not mince his words.

“I’ve got to be honest, no one cares for Gavin,” Sununu said. “Gavin’s just a prick — excuse me — he just is.”

“He just is. It’s really disappointing,” Sununu said of Newsom. “All of us got along for a while, but even the Democrats — they won’t tell you out loud — but behind closed doors they’re like ‘oh God, look who’s coming.’''

Bottom line…

Gavin Newsom is your jumped-up progressive communist democrat who believes he deserves the Presidency should Joe Biden be eliminated from the ticket before the 2024 presidential election. The schmuck is loathed in California and by many of his fellow politicians.

While Gavin Newsom might be marginally more viable than the brain-dead President Joe Biden and his loathsome Vice President Kamala Harris, it would be almost an act of treason to inflict his progressive communist democrat agenda on a failing America.

We are so screwed.
