Gavin Newsom is the new Democrat heartthrob

Cuomosexuality is so last week. The wet dreams about Fredo's brother, the governor, becoming president died fast and hard when people realized he is one big jerk. He is almost as bad as those women who cut office donuts in half. And it always is a cream-filled donut. The rule is you touch any of the donut, you eat the whole thing.

It also dawned on people that under Andrew Cuomo's leadership, New York state became the epicenter of COVID-19 in the United States.

Enter Gavin Newsom, the governor of California. He declared California a nation-state and liberals are swooning. Never mind how nationalistic the phrase is, Newsom is the new White Obama that Democrats seek.

Francis Wilkinson of Bloomberg News declared Newsom this week's savior of the republic.

Wilkinson wrote, "California this week declared its independence from the federal government’s feeble efforts to fight COVID-19 — and perhaps from a bit more. The consequences for the fight against the pandemic are almost certainly positive. The implications for the brewing civil war between Trumpism and America’s budding 21st-century majority, embodied by California’s multiracial liberal electorate, are less clear."

Newsom declared California a nation-state, which is problematic for liberals be they multiracial or lily white.

First, nationalism is the anti-thesis of communism's globalism.

Second, states rights were embraced by Democrats back when they defended actual slavery.

But Wilkinson is not picky when it comes to his search for a Trump slayer.

Newsom has more masks and other medical equipment that are in temporary short supply. (By the end of the year, we will be up to our elbows in ventilators.) So he is shipping the surplus to other states.

Wilkinson wrote, "Newsom is accomplishing a few things here, with what can only be a deliberate lack of subtlety. First and foremost, he is trying to relieve the shortage of personal protective equipment — a crisis the White House has proved incapable of remedying. Details are a little fuzzy, but Newsom, according to news reports, has organized multiple suppliers to deliver roughly 200 million masks monthly.

"Second, Newsom is kicking sand in the face of President Donald Trump after Newsom’s previous flattery — the coin of the White House realm — failed to produce results. If Trump can’t manage to deliver supplies, there’s no point in Newsom continuing the charade.

"Third, and this may be the most enduring effect, Newsom is sending a powerful message to both political parties. So far, the Republican Party’s war on democratic values, institutions and laws has been a largely one-sided affair, with the GOP assaulting and the Democrat Party defending. The lethal ruling this week by the U.S. Supreme Court’s Republican bloc, which required Wisconsin residents to vote in person during a pandemic that shut down polling stations, is a preview of the fall campaign. The GOP intends to restrict vote-by-mail and other legitimate enfranchisement to suppress turnout amid fear, uncertainty and disease."

I am not really sure how that third point was made. If he means Newsom is showing that we have 50 independent states, then Wilkinson's civics education was poor. We are These United States of America. We are not a nation divided into 50 states, but rather 50 states united to form a nation. We are the land of E Pluribus Unum -- out of many, one.

Wilkinson openly wants a new Confederate States of America.

He wrote, "From Fort Sumter to Little Rock to Montgomery, the blueprint for states opposing federal control has a recurring theme. But there is no reason that states can’t adopt a racist playbook for other ends. If California and other 21st-century polities withhold revenue, or otherwise distance themselves from Washington’s control, legal and political battles will escalate. Republicans will have a legitimate constitutional argument — but it will be a morally tainted and politically illegitimate one so long as they continue to subvert majority rule."

Fact check: Donald John Trump carried 30 states in 2016, a majority. Hillary got 48% of the popular vote, a plurality.

But Wilkinson writes for Mini Mike, and Mini Mike is not happy that The Donald is 1. Better looking, 2. Taller, and 3. President. In that order.

Mini Mike and the other Democrat kingmakers have the sack ready to toss Biden in. They just need a replacement. Fredo's brother failed to ignite. Newsom is the next man up.

After that, who knows? I hear Evan McMullin is tanned, rested, and ready. Jimmy Carter is still eligible for a second term. But why not Chuckles the Schumer? A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer in your rants. Old but snarly.

  1. How’s San Francisco working out, Mr. ex-mayor?

    I don’t know how much of what Wilkinson wrote is true, but California wasn’t a leading light before this panic.

    Like most democrat office holders, scratch the surface and far left wing flaws come pouring out.

  2. I don't always comment but when I do, I talk about the heir apparent


    Democratic Silver Medalist Update

    So Bernie announced this week he tested negative for the Presidential Virus

    What I wonder is when the Rad Left will realize they've been played by Millionaire Bernie. For someone who talks so radical in early primaries... Bernie sure does bow and scrape to the Dem leadership when it's time to admit defeat.

    The stage is set for everyone's favorite Salon Game of name the VP nominee who will be top of the ticket post Trump.

    Angry has gone on record saying Newsom WILL be that nominee. Anyone who says that some Michigan Gov or Warren or other fantasy is not paying attention.

    The Dems have a grooming process. And since Newsom was mayor of San Fran (with all that local wealth) he has been Identified as THE FUTURE.

    Much like Newsom being understudy to Jerry Brown. Newsom will be the Robin to Biden's elderly Batman

    I will be amused how (much like the nomination) everyone knew it would not be Biden at many points. But in the end... yep it's Biden.

    Cuomo will be trotted out... Half-Wit will be trotted out. They will prance and we will go through the convention CONVINCED, Convinced I say! that it will NOT EVER BE NEWSOM.

    But in the end Berniacs will be disappointed because it will be Newsom.

    Bernie will write his ridiculous platform

    Biden will politely LOSE

    Newsom will be the ONE BRIGHT SPOT in the whole 2020 election cycle.

    Who KNEW? hmmm?

    If people are paying attention, they might realize that the Dem leadership pretty much gave up on 2020 from the start. Biden was always set up to be another Dole.

    So why do the whole Impeach and other antics? Was impeachment ALWAYS meant to be a naked political ploy because there was no way beat Trump?

    The Dems seem to be a full Cynical Faking of Passion and rolling over.

    Bernie Faked running for President

    Cuomo will Fake VP run

    Biden will Fake Pres run

    I wonder if the snowflakes will realize that the elders are just playing at winning?

    2. If Newsom runs, the Democrats lose. The black community weren't turning out for Buttigieg, they won't turn out for him. He would not even carry his home state in the general if it weren't for all the fraud built into the system.

    3. It's all been about preserving the Dem majority in the House. Bernie would have burned the voter ballot and folks would just click all GOP. That's why Dem leadership consolidated for Biden. But, just like Cuomo, scratch the surface of Newsom and you won't see anything but another far left progressive out of touch with the rest of the country. Plus, you tab him as Biden's running mate after Biden promised a woman or a minority, that voting bloc will stay home.

  4. Dear California;

    We had a little discussion about 'nation-states' about 160 years ago. You may have heard about it. Don't make us have that conversation again. Here's how that will go.
    1. California declares itself a "nation-state"
    2. California is declared as in rebellion against the Constitutional government.
    3. Federal authorities invite the State government to visit the Federal housing complex in Leavenworth, KS.
    4. California loses its statehood, is returned to a territory. Loses its congressional delegation.
    5. California territory is divided into six parts (see Six Californias Plan)
    6. The six new territories are allowed to reapply for statehood individually.

    1. Aw, do we have to let them back in? If they want to leave, let 'em, and don't let the door hit 'em where God split 'em. Better yet, give California to Mexico, and build a wall around it.

    2. If California were to secede, the United States would still be a great nation of 290 million people without this left wing anchor dragging us down.

    3. Let California go. Then New York. Then Mass. Then Illinois. Then every other state that the Democrats manage to gain control of for a week. What's left. Nothing. Nothing at all.

      The US does not cede territory. If the Sacramento Leftists don't like the new arrangement, they are free to go somewhere else. Venezuela is nice this time of year.

    4. If California ever tried to secede under Newsom, they would arrange to become a "protectorate" of the ChiComs in advance (See Kurt Schlichter's book series People's Republic, Indian Country, Wildfire, and Collapse).

      CA Democrats are the same kind of people as the ChiComs are...

  5. Two past indiscretions by Gov. Newscum:
    He had a sexual affair with the wife of one of his top aides. Then he was photographed at a party next to his under-21 new girlfriend, who was holding an adult beverage in violation of liquor laws. His ex-wife is now the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr. ... do you think she has some stories to tell?

  6. Exceptionally lucid today, Mr. S.

  7. So, we in California can't get masks, but he is sending the 'surplus' elsewhere? Just Wow!!! As a Senior Citizen, can I sue him for elder abuse?

  8. Well, Californians are in internment. It's not social distancing when you can't even go out to sea dozens of yards from anyone else. All Trump has directed is 6' social distancing, hand washing and no gatherings of more than 10.

    As for the 2016 election, of all the variations for the electoral college, Trump won, except for one that would have ended up in the House. Hillary only "wins" if it is by popularity only and then not by a majority. (and that presumes no adaptation to popularity vote. )

  9. Newsoms comments was just cover for his failure on Testing, and his finally figured out he’s in charge of Ca (Federalism is reality), and should act like a Governor.
