Lillian Boyd’s biased reporting mischaracterizes Recall Newsom supporters as “anti-vaxxers, militia members and conspiracy theorists,” while she carefully omits any list of Newsom’s incompetent policies which led to the recall.

Placating the demands of a major donor, California’s teachers union, led to the disastrous decision to shut down the public schools for over a year.

His dutiful obeisance to another major donor, the prison/guard union, is leading to the release of 63,000 dangerous prisoners, including nearly 20,000 who are serving life sentences, while California homicides have jumped by 31% overalland 58% in LA County.

His misguided environmental policies have created water and electrical shortages, skyrocketing housing costs and uncontrollable forest fires.

Other craven Newsom policies have increased gas prices to the highest in the nation, increased homelessness by over 17% since 2017, and ordered a lockdown that destroyed tens of thousands of small businesses throughout the state.

None of these are partisan issues. They are self-inflicted wounds directly attributable to Gavin Newsom’s policies.
