By Kevin Kiley – November 21, 2023
A few weeks ago, Newsom appeared on The Issue Is and told the biggest lie in California political history. California’s COVID catastrophe, he claimed, wasn’t his fault; he’d simply allowed “local control.”
This weekend, I appeared on the same show at the same time with the same host – and refuted Newsom directly. You can watch each rebuttal at the links below:
- COVID: California’s response was the worst in America, and Newsom was entirely responsible. Newsom himself shut down schools, businesses, churches, beaches, youth sports. Our communities had no say.
- Xi in SF: The way Newsom rolled out the “red carpet” was embarrassing. He cares more about impressing a communist dictator than making our cities livable for our own citizens.
- Freeway Fire: In California, we pay the highest taxes yet have the worst infrastructure. We sacrifice the most and get the least in return. This fundamental failure of government is Newsom’s “model for the nation.”
This comes as Biden seemed to anoint Newsom, calling him “one hell of a governor, man” and adding: “he could have the job I’m looking for.” It also comes a week before Newsom’s “debate” with Ron DeSantis. I’ve already suggested 10 questions and will be releasing more this week.
Meanwhile, Newsom has been silent about the shocking report on the secret Chinese bio lab. I’m calling for further investigations, including accountability for the CDC. The good news is Jesse Zhu, the fugitive behind the lab, has been arrested and charged in federal court.
And DOD is finally offering to “correct” the records of wrongfully dismissed service members, a year after we got Biden to end the military vaccine mandate. His Treasury Secretary, meanwhile, was photographed at a Bay Area In-N-Out that was shut down for refusing to require vaccine cards.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
