Gavin Newsom Runs Ads in Florida Trying to Get Folks to Move to California for More Freedom
[PJMedia] You gotta hand it to Gavin Newsom. He’s quite sure of himself, and the righteousness of his cause.

The Democratic governor of California has made a growing number of appeals to conservatives lately, along the lines of, “Hey, if you REALLY like freedom, you’d LOVE what we’ve done in The Golden State!”

Now, he’s running ads over the Independence Day weekend in Florida, accusing evil Republicans of banning speech in classrooms, banning books, and restricting voting rights:

Newsom’s new ads in Florida follow his move to join Donald Trump’s Truth Social platform:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday said he had joined former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social platform to call out “Republican lies.”

“I know we’re all on this platform in search for the truth,” Newsom said in a video post. “But the truth is I’ve not been able to find a simple explanation for the fact that we have a red state murder problem.”

Look, it’s a little early, but the campaign to replace Biden in 2024 has begun in earnest.

#1  In two years, I may have to visit Cali for my niece's college graduation. I expect them to have the Avocado Toast Curtain up by then, making it hostile territory for a Floridian like myself.

#4  No, Almost. It is altogether too real. Gov. Dippity Doo thinks California has some very attractive selling points that will induce Flordians to move here. After all, you can still get an abortion in California. If you're a boy you can marry your boyfriend. The perverts at Disneyland are still allowed to groom children, illegal aliens get free health care, and junkies can shoot up on the sidewalks...after they've taken a crap on the sidewalks.

A match between Dippity Doo and Ron DeSantis in 2024 might be highly entertaining.

#8  Every time I get really depressed by the horrible decline in America's sanity, culture and future, I find comfort in the core of our people and the values that made our nation the Shining City on a Hill that Reagan talked about. And my own Welsh forebears and their indomitable resistance to suppression. Trust me, open the link, give it a moment, and then if it doesn't stir your blood, have someone call the coroner!

Director Homeland Security - 'Biden doing a good job at the border'
[Breitbart] During an appearance on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s "This Week," Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas downplayed what has been panned as a lackluster effort by the Biden administration at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mayorkas told anchor Martha Raddatz he thought the Biden administration was doing a "good job."

Trump rips 'despicable' Liz Cheney after she suggests Jan. 6 charges for ex-president
Sadly, she is.
[NYPOST] Former President Donald Trump
...The man who was so stupid he beat fourteen professional politicians, a former tech CEO, and a brain surgeon for the Republican nomination in 2016, then beat The Smartest Woman in the World in the general election...
lashed out at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Monday, calling her a "despicable human being" a day after the congresswoman said in an interview that the Jan. 6 committee may refer the 45th president to the Justice Department for potential prosecution over his role in the Capitol riot.

"Warmongering and despicable human being Liz Cheney, who is hated by the great people of Wyoming (down 35!), keeps saying, over and over again, that HER Fake Unselect Committee may recommend CRIMINAL CHARGES against a President of the United States who got more votes than any sitting President in history," Trump said on Truth Social.

"Even the Dems didn’t know what she was talking about! Why doesn’t she press charges instead against those that cheated on the Election, or those that didn’t properly protect the Capitol?" he added.

In a subsequent post, the former president raged: "Why doesn’t the highly partisan Unselect Committee of political Thugs, the same people (all Trump haters & profiteers — books, speeches, etc.) that were involved with Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax # 2, the ’No Collusion’ Mueller Report and, overall, the GREATEST WITCH HUNT IN THE HISTORY OF THE USA, go after the people who have been rioting, burning down cities, leading the massive crime wave, & killing many all over the U.S., including drug & human traffickers? No, let’s get ’Trump’!"

Liz has never had 10% of the power or the ability to play puppet master like daddy did. She has never been little more than 4th tier in DC Swamp at best.

She might as well officially add (LSD) to her political title, because she has gone too far Liberal Left to even be called a RHINO now.

#5  "go after the people who have been rioting, burning down cities, leading the massive crime wave, & killing many all over the U.S., including drug & human traffickers? No, let’s get ’Trump’!"

Those destructive cretins were never considered a threat to the power of those running the place. You however were taken as a direct threat to their power. What they don't comprehend is that they've shown their hand and given everyone a choice - accept their rule or burn the place down and start over again.

#6  The faster the voters throw her out of office, the happier I'll be.

#7  'No good' sort of runs in the family.
Posted by: Besoeker || 07/05/2022 8:09 Comments || Top||

#8  She should enjoy her little soap box while she can because next year she'll be out of office and only a handful of MSNBC viewers will give a rat's ass what she says.
