Is journalism dead? Rhetoric such as attempting to "Throw" Newsom out of office is so unprofessional. It is called a "recall" which is a legal right given to citizens. It is not the first time that a Recall has occurred in California and there were good reasons to make the effort. Apparently the voters did not care about Newsom's Big Government and High Taxes and did not pay attention to how California's major cities have almost literally gone into the toilet with homelessness, drugs, crime and filth. There is a reason so many Californians have fled our State in the past few years. And it is a fact that they have left. It is a shame what has happened to our State.

It might be interesting to use to track your ballot status. A number of people (Republicans) reportedly went to their polling places to vote & were told they had already voted. The very lax voting process currently being set in place by this one- party ruled state is a set up for voter fraud. Continued use of this sketchy system will cement one-party power in place. One vote, one day, voter ID, no machines!
Two million people across party lines signed for the recall because we are tired of the gross mismanagement of our state.

The fact that Newsom wasn’t recalled is now irrelevant. However, the recall put a blemish/stain on his record that will never go away.

More interesting is to see if Newsom comes out with a “unity” speech about bringing Californians together. Of course, that probably wouldn’t work because Newsom is not trustworthy - just like the current clown in the White House.
