Epic California Recall Election: What is Really Happening [Interview with Craig]

Craig Huey California, Election, Politics 5 Comments

I recently did an interview with Kayla Blakeslee about the governor’s recall in California. You can listen to it HERE. Here are a few highlights:

This is an epic battle – it will expose the corruption in the California government and of Governor Newsom.

Here are a few of the reasons there is a recall – and people are leaving:

  • 5.5 businesses a week are leaving California right now.
  • A record number of people are becoming California refugees.
  • Churches were shut down, worship and prayer made illegal.
  • Big corporations have received all the favors from the government – while around 40% of small businesses have closed their doors forever.
  • California now has the highest taxes, the highest homeless rate and the highest crime rate in the nation.
  • The biggest obstacle to the recall is fighting the California political machine.
  • The unions and many organizations use ballot harvesting to maintain Democratic control of California.
  • And now, over two million people have signed the petition to recall Governor Gavin Newsom.
  • There will be close to 80 or 90 candidates in this race to replace Governor Newsom.
  • Today, 19 states allow recalls.
  • The race will be in October or as late as November.
  • On the ballot will be a question that asks if the Governor should be recalled – then the second part of the ballot says, “Which candidate should be Governor?”

Back in 2003, Arnold Schwarzenegger got 48.6% of the vote and became Governor with that percentage of votes.

It is possible that a candidate that only receives 30-40% of the vote could win the race.

  • Gov. Newsom has spent around $11 million dollars trying to convince people to take their name off the petition. It isn’t working.
  • Newsom will have about $100 million in this race. All opponents are struggling.

The former Mayor of San Diego has about $10 million in this race.

The candidate that ran against Gov. Newsom last time will have around $5-$6 million in the race.

At this point we do not know how much money Caitlyn Jenner will have in this race – she does have her own fortune and free publicity – she wants to make transgenders more acceptable… but she does have a conservative platform.

  • $1.5 million dollars was given to Gov. Newsom by the Realtors’ Association – and you will see large corporations seeking government favors in this election.

Gov. Newsom will be utilizing ballot harvesting and the best marketing tactics to win this election. It will be an uphill battle to recall Newsom.

The interview is about 7-minutes long with Kayla Blakeslee on the Governor’s recall.

  1. The problems as I see them.
    First there is no functioning opposition in CA, the Republican party here is a joke and needs to be taken back at a grassroots level.
    Second we need poll watchers that reflect their communities as they are best at watching the election theft in their community. Volunteer to be a poll watcher.
    Third we need to get people to walk away from Bruce Jenner, no matter what it says he is a male. I tried watching the Hannity interview of him and couldn’t do it. Much like Schwarzenegger he tries to talk the talk but cannot walk the walk. behind the publicity stunt it is a house of cards at best.
    Fourth we need to unify behind a candidate that is solid for the MAGA agenda only call it Make California Great Again. We also need to speak and own it loudly, my wife and I have many customers who say under their breath that they signed the petition and will be voting Newsome out like doing so is a conspiracy. That has to stop the feeling we are in a police state.
    Last once we have that candidate we need to support him like the Trump rallies in CA that we had. Money is needed but phone banks, going door to door for the candidate, standing as a group on street corners are still the most effective ways of getting out the vote and supporting the candidate, neighbors talking to neighbors that is how it will get done. Just recalling the nuisance is not enough, finding a viable candidate is of the utmost necessity and the sooner the better. In marketing that I took years ago it takes 3 or more times to see someone’s name or product to imprint your product on the consumer. No matter what you call it marketing is what will get us our next governor.

  2. Paul, I agree 100%. The part that will make or break the results is the issue of unity behind ONE candidate. We need an “MCGA” candidate to appear.

  3. The corruption is pervasive in California government. There are few checks and balances that will protect the recall process, should it be scheduled. And there is talk it may not. Should it be scheduled, first, voters will be asked if they want to recall Gov. Newsom, yes or no? If more than 50% of voters vote no, then Newsom stays in office. In the second part of the ballot, voters will be asked to pick a replacement in the event the recall passes. Voters will likely have a long list of people to choose from. There are all kinds of shenanigans going on to make sure Newsom stays in office. Or, that if he leaves, it is on his (and the Democrats) terms.

    However, the elephant in the room is the super majority that exists within the Democratic legislature. So, should Gavin Newsom be removed and a new conservative governor elected, the super majority can impede any progress a new governor hopes to make. They are veto proof! So, nothing will change. The state will still be held hostage to the idiocracy that is Sacramento, unless and until the legislature itself is affected by change through the votes of the Citizens of California.

    Many types of businesses are under attack by Sacramento…ag and oil, for starters. Too many people are leaving with their families and businesses. The model in Sacramento that currently exists, is unsustainable. The system is overwhelmed. Water issues, sanctuary status for illegals, the release of criminals, the reduction of sentencing, high crime rates, the highest homeless rate in the US and social welfare, now being handed out like candy to illegals are breaking the bank and the backs of our citizens. We need change now! We need new blood at all levels in California, from local to regional to State. If change is not made, the state is doomed.

  4. I’m disappointed that, as of 18 June 2021, this article panders to contemporary irrationality and fantasy by calling Bruce Jenner “she.” People with Y chromosomes should be called “he,” particularly people who’ve been star male athletes.

    I agree with Craig and commenters that the situation for this state is dire. I’ll have to opt out of any California edition of Trumpist MAGA, however. This state’s problems don’t owe to its lack of big-government populism, so replacing the current big-government elitism with MAGA won’t solve much.

    Don’t get me wrong, I grant that there might be some improvement. I’m not one of the “Ah, these parties are all the same” people. But I do think that restoration of liberty to California will require a much more radical liberty agenda than anything MAGA has ever offered. I hope and pray that small-government lovers of liberty will get over their love affair with big-government New York demagogue Trump sometime soon. Alas, I see no signs on Fox News or Newsmax that such will ever happen.

    Thank you for your time.
