(TLB) ed. No doubt in the time it took you to see the Headline and get to this point you guessed we were referring to California Gov Newsom and NY Gov Cuomo.
How did these two ever become governor of States that have an economy larger than some Countries? An educated guess would say they both can be Controlled and Bought and Paid for. (An ideal canidate for the Lib Political Machine.)
Both have a very thin ‘claim to fame.’ Newsom “hung out” with Hunter Biden for some quality time… while Cuomo kept his act together long enough to Wed a “Kennedy Girl.”
So it was off and running with lots of Money and No Responsibilities… The perfect template and training for any future Lib Politician. (Above all, always Blame the Other Guy.) (TLB)
California Gov. Newsom blames ‘anti-mask and anti-vax extremists’ for recall effort
The governor also says pro-Trump forces are “risking the progress we are making to end the pandemic.”
More than 2 million Californians have signed a petition to recall Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Now Newsom says it’s all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy.
“And let’s just call it what it is: it’s a partisan, Republican recall – backed by the RNC, anti-mask and anti-vax extremists, and pro-Trump forces that want to overturn the last election and have opposed much of what we have done to fight the pandemic,” said the governor, referring to the Republican National Committee.
“If they are successful, it would mean risking the progress we are making to end the pandemic,” Newsom wrote in an email to supporters. “We can’t let that happen.”
He also said he will not take the recall effort against him “lying down” and urged his supporters to sign a different petition to oppose the “far-right Republican recall effort.”
Randy Economy, a spokesman for the Recall Gavin 2020 campaign, told Fox News that the governor calling the effort part of an extremist movement was “pathetic.”
“Gavin Newsom is resorting to political desperation. He now, finally, has accepted the fact that there will be a recall election being held this year to decide the direction of California and his political fate,” Economy said. “For him to continue to label the people’s campaign as extremist is sad, pathetic and just goes to show how out of touch he really is.”
The California GOP responded on Twitter.
“The highest poverty rate in the nation, the largest number of homeless, some of the highest gas prices, unemployment checks going to death row inmates, and up to $31 billion in unemployment fraud,” wrote the California Republicans. “The recall is gaining momentum because of your failed leadership.”
I won’t be distracted by this partisan, Republican recall — but I will fight it.
There is too much at stake.
Getting Californians vaccinated, our economy safely reopened, and our kids back in school are simply too important to risk.

The recall campaign – which even sells merchandise like coronavirus face shields emblazoned with the slogan – scored a big win when a superior court judge extended the signature deadline from Nov. 17 to March 17, 2021, accepting the argument the pandemic hurt efforts to circulate petitions.
The effort picked up steam in November when Newsom and his wife attended a birthday party with a dozen of friends at the expensive French Laundry restaurant in Napa, north of San Francisco. The governor said the dinner, for a lobbyist friend, was outdoors, but pictures told a different story.
Newsom eventually apologized.
“I made a bad mistake,” he said. “I should have stood up and … drove back to my house. The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted. I need to preach and practice, not just preach.”
Adam Housley, a former Fox News correspondent, has claimed that the dinner was attended by 22 guests, not 12, who ran up a bar bill of over $15,000.
In July, Newsom ordered certain businesses across 19 counties to scale back their operations, including restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos and museums, card rooms and bars.
However, Newsom’s own winery and tasting room in Napa Valley was allowed to stay open. Madera County wineries were exempt from the order because it was not one of those on the list.
Newsom also owns stock in PlumpJack Group, which includes a winery in Napa Valley’s Oakville, FOX26-TV reported.

A pair of articles, that is. Here is his second…
‘Breathtaking bulls***’: Critics rip AP article blaming Republicans for Cuomo’s mounting scandals
“… You aren’t a news organization, you are a propaganda machine.”
The Associated Press was once considered an unbiased source for news.
In a story on Friday – headlined “Top Dems call on Cuomo to resign amid harassment allegations” – the wire service found a way to praise President Biden and bash Republicans, saying the GOP has “seized” on the sexual misconduct scandal swirling around New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“The escalating political crisis has spawned an impeachment inquiry in an overwhelmingly Democratic state, and threatens to cast a cloud over President Joe Biden’s early days in office. Republicans have seized on the scandal to try to distract from Biden’s success tackling the coronavirus pandemic and challenge his party’s well-established advantage with female voters,” the AP wrote in the story’s fourth paragraph.
The story does point out that New York’s two U.S. senators, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand – both Democrats – have deserted Cuomo and that top Democratic progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on the governor to resign.
But the article doesn’t state that more than 50 Democratic lawmakers in the statehouse have seized on the scandal. A huge swath of state Democratic lawmakers have called in the governor to resign or face impeachment.
“Just breathtaking bulls***,” Washington Examiner journalist Becket Adams tweeted. He later said, “Taking a screen grab again just in case” the AP edited the piece.
I assure you it’s real:https://t.co/NcTNMN4g3q

Others pointed out the irony of the verbiage. “Cuomo literally seized women who worked for him,” wrote one person on Twitter.
Still others took aim at the AP.
“Can’t decide what’s more crazy about this “Republicans seize on Cuomo scandal” line — that it was published .. or that it was published in the AP, not Think Progress or an outlet that you EXPECT to gaslight,” wrote another.
“When your coverage of a Governor having a series of sexual abuse allegations revealed and his own party triggering Impeachment inquires and calling on him to resign is ‘Republican have seized on the scandal,’ you aren’t a news organization, you are a propaganda machine,” says another post.
“This is reporting??” wrote still another.
It’s not the first time a liberal news site has sought to blame the GOP for a Democratic scandal.
“At this stage, any journalist who frames a mistake or controversial statement made by a Democratic politician with ‘conservatives pounce’ has to be either woefully out of touch with reality or consciously trolling,” National Review editor Charles C.W. Cooke wrote last year.
