Putin Wants To Be Emperor – Of Alaska!?

Here is an old plot – made fresh! Oregon has resisted Russian rule – and will again! Watch this scene from The Russians Are Coming. This could be a family living in Depoe Bay.

P.S. I just read this post – that contains the lost chapter of my Bond book ‘The Royal Janitor’. It was posted in December of 2019 and talks about Victoria wearing a mask. Covid-19 was just being detected in China. I write about Trump manipulating the Electorial College, and Rudy dismissing our ambassador to Ukraine.

“Fuck! I had planned to go shopping while in London! I can’t be seen like this!”

“Wear a smog mask. They make very expensive ones that are in fashion! Don’t get up.”

‘POTUS is poised to sign an executive order, turning four States over to Putin…..BREATH!”

“Why would he do such a thing?’

“Think Electorial College and the fact the West will forever be for the Democrats. California has 58 electorial votes, that will be removed from the election of POTUS. If this happens, then there will forever be a Republican President. No longer will the Repbulican Abortion and Heathen Club have to get dirt on the Democrats. This is a religious cult, who for two thusand years have taken over the land of Non-Christians who are deemed godless heathens -who can not be saved. This is why POTUS built his wall. ”

Rudolph Giuliani said in an interview that he briefed the president “a couple of times” about Marie Yovanovitch, the envoy to Ukraine, setting her recall in motion.

U.S. warns China risks embarrassment if it backs Russia on Ukraine (msn.com)

The significance of Putin and Xi’s meeting on the eve of the Beijing Winter Olympics was not lost on the United States, and Daniel Kritenbrink, the top U.S. diplomat for East Asia, said that Moscow and Beijing have grown more closely aligned. But if Russia chooses to invade Ukraine again, the move could “embarrass Beijing” because “it suggests that China is willing to tolerate or tacitly support Russia’s efforts to coerce Ukraine,” he told reporters Friday.

On its homepage Friday afternoon, Bloomberg published the headline: “Russia Invades Ukraine.” 

  • Russia hadn’t in fact invaded Ukraine.
  • Bloomberg said the headline was “inadvertently published” and apologized.

Bloomberg has apologized for publishing a headline stating that Russia had invaded Ukraine. 

On Friday afternoon, a headline appeared at the top of the Bloomberg homepage that said: “Live: Russia Invades Ukraine.”

Bloomberg said later on Friday: “We prepare headlines for many scenarios and the headline ‘Russia Invades Ukraine’ was inadvertently published around 4 p.m. ET today on our website. We deeply regret the error. The headline has been removed and we are investigating the cause.” 

Olga Lautman, a Kremlin analyst who spotted the error, told the New York Post: “I went on the site and saw the breaking news but knew it wasn’t real because I deal with Ukraine and will be one of the first to know. It is bizarre and a pretty big mistake to make considering this is a potential large scale invasion and everyone is on edge.”

Chapter Five: The Manhattan Declaration

“She’s pregnant!” Clive told Victoria across the cold glass that covered his families ancient mahogany desk where the fate of world’s shipping was mapped out in secret trade agreements. Everything was Insured.

“Who’s pregnant?” Victoria asked, and tried to oppress the hot blood that rushed to her brain.

“Miriam.” Clive said, and studied Victoria’s reaction.

“She’s….with child? She told me she was a virgin. I am a virgin. That was our seal, our bond. How do you know? Did she tell you?”

“Breath! Take three deep breaths – and think calm thoughts. Your face is turning red. You need to meditate!”

“I need to meditate?” Victoria was fighting off a torrent of Christian Shame. She had used logic to dismiss the truth that she was having a Lesbian relationship, but, the idea that her lover got pregnant, filled her soul, her brain, with the idea she had done something – very bad – as if she knocked-up her beloved Starfish.

How she acquired Catholic Sin in the bowels of the College of Heraldry, must be due to all the mottos she read on the Coat of Arms, and, the religious notes she had to carefully study in cases of Crusader Knighthood. There were many who belonged to orders that sprang from Jerusalem. There was images of baby Jesus in a manger. All this sin and shame!

“How did you find out Starfish is pregnant? Victoria was glaring at Clive.

“Please! Sit back down. Take three deep breaths. Our toilets test all BAD women, automatically, when you use them.”

“You mean……you chemically analyze our urine – in the toilet? Do you test for drugs, too? Do you take pictures of us?’

“Yes – breath!”

Victoria slid out of the chair in a dead faint. Her chin his the glass top and put a crack in it. When she came to, she was on the greatest leather sofa ever made. A antiseptic sheet was put on it. Victoria heard the sound of the last staple put in her chin. Her wound required three staples. The BAD doctor wiped away the blood that had rolled down her neck and stained the sheet. Victoria tried to wipe away the vision of a grown man pissing in a BAD toilet with his…….She had never seen a penis!

“Are the men at BAD tested? Do you have photos of them relieving themselves on file!” asked Victoria, she sounding like a moron due to her lower jaw being numb. Reaching with her hand, she swore when she felt the big white bandage.

“Fuck! I had planned to go shopping while in London! I can’t be seen like this!”

“Wear a smog mask. They make very expensive ones that are in fashion! Don’t get up.”

“Fuck you! Give me something to throw. It must be spendy. Couldn’t you have ordered a bouquet of flowers and put them on the desk, when you told me the fucking blessed good news. I love Miriam, you rotten bastards! I feel so defiled! I want my tinkling pics – now! And Miriam’s! How dare you! Is nothing sacred?”

“We do not capture you while tinkling, but when you turn on the faucet to wash your hands. This flushes the toilet. Haven’t you noticed the delay?”

‘Why do you do this?” Victoria asked, then, took three quiet breaths. “Washing ones hands is a very sacred practice – you creeps! When we use public toilets we spread the message we are not spreading germs. You have dirtied – us! We love our mirrors you place a camera behind. We give our best look. Why!”

“When women have an unexpected pregnancy, they become very vulnerable – to our enemy. Most women believe it is their right to privately summon their higher power to deal with – the big surprise! Many women have no higher power, and fall back on the myth of pure logic – that does not exist! Everyone in Western Culture is subjected to a Shame-base, Christian morality. It comes with the total package. There exist a very intrusive ambitious Abortion Cult that swoops down on vulnerable women in high places. Have you heard of Charles Colson?”

“Do you mean, Chuck Colson, of Watergate fame?”

‘Yes! He was ordered by the President to get something dirty on the Democrats. There was talk one of the leaders owned a porno collection of naked Hippies posing with Senators and Congressmen at a commune on a secret island. Have you heard of Jonah Puffhausen, and Cardinal Foley?”

Foley I know very well. I worked on his genealogy and coat of arms. He subscribe to the coming of a American Prophet who would rebuild the temple in Jerusalem! Miriam knew when to close her mouth, and listen.

“Here’s the bottom line. There are Americans and Russians who believe Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California belongs to Russia via saints of the Russian Orthodox Church that built Fort Ross. Miriam’s parents were leaders in this movement. They met Jonah at UC Berekley. Jonah sent them to Oregon where they eventually studied at North West University. They founded the Russian Bear and Star club. This is the Star of Bethlehem held in the talons of the double eagle of the Orthodox church.”

Clive studied Victoria as she did a chart in her head. She connected some dots to coats of arms, and other private information secret orginizations with the College of Heradlry. Many people want to be seen as immortal. When she read the President of the United States was wanting a bogus coat of arms, she picked up the phone and out the kabash on his fraudulent dream.”

‘POTUS is poised to sign an executive order, turning four States over to Putin…..BREATH!”

“Why would he do such a thing?’

“Think Electorial College and the fact the West will forever be for the Democrats. California has 58 electorial votes, that will be removed from the election of POTUS. If this happens, then there will forever be a Republican President. No longer will the Repbulican Abortion and Heathen Club have to get dirt on the Democrats. This is a religious cult, who for two thusand years have taken over the land of Non-Christians who are deemed godless heathens -who can not be saved. This is why POTUS built his wall. ”

Victoria went to rub her chin, and, felt the bandage. She understood all this via Christian coat of arms – and flags!

“We can not tell Miriam. She was seduced by a disciple of Puffhausin who she had a crush on when they met. She was fifteen. He was twenty. They both have Royal Alute blood. There has been an interest in their breeding, and the child they would produce. They are looking for their Virgin Mary.”

‘Does Miriam know about this?”

“Some. Her increble intuition is putting the jigsaw puzzle together, starting with the blue sky pieces. You know how she is. We have set up a War Room. We want you to do a chart. You, we, must arrive at the epicenter before Miriam does. I’m afraid she sees you as a conduit of information. She does not want to see you this way. She will use you. You must use her. Study Calexit and its connecteion to Brexit. The Manhatten cult wants to do away with the Europan Union and NATO. They convinced POTUS France was the world capitol of infidelity because French men of means have a mistress.”

(Blank stares exchanged here)

Here is the Manhatten Declaration and a list of times POTUS said there would be an uprising if he is Impeached. The Democrats will file tomorrow. They are having a pow-wow right now. You need to do a Story Board. We are looking at Biblical Prophecy – LIVE!”

“Miriam knowns evertything there is to know about prophecy. She would be a tremendous help right now!”

“Once the storyboard is complete, we will bring her here to look at it on the big screen. Once she has seen our work, she will own the upperhand. It must appear that we own the high ground, or, she will run circles around us. Thank God, for this!” Clive put a file before Victoria made of green velvet.

“This is your Puritan ancestry we have kept from you. John von John is your kin. His real name is John Wilson Rosamond. He has revived Herbert Armstrong’s church. Call him, now. He needs to be here. We are going to fight BAD prophecy, with BAD prophecy. We are going into the Sage&Scribe business. When the storyboard is complete, you are going to Scotland to stay over night with The Poker Club.”

“The Poker Club?” Victoria chimed. Aren’t they an ancient all male club who some say rule the Western World?” Victoria got no answer.

“Why are you and Miriam sneaking about Osborne House?”

“We are looking for Victoria’s lost library.

“Interesting. In four days I want you and Miriam on a plane. You are going to Harvard to look for the lost library of Reverend John Wilson, who is your 9th. grandfather, too!” Clive watched his remark sink in.

“Are you saying John von John and I share this ancestor? Miriam hates him. Wait a minute, the Puritans and California Russians, are on the same path. Who owns America is the question.”

“They say Manhattan was purchased from the heathens for a pair of beads. The Russian Pioneer Monks married native women. They kept very good genealogical records. Look at Saint Innocent of Alaska. Miriam claimed she was a Russian Native American Princess.”

“And this is why she dresses like Sheenah, Queen of the Jungle?” added Victoria, with three calm breaths. “I wonder if Russia has a Walt Disney?”

Today, we crossed the Rubicon. There is no turning back. President Trump sent the Speaker of the House an extremely demonizing letter – with eagle seal – that invoked the name of my Puritan ancestors. Nancy tore it up.

If I were a young man, again, I would want to marry all the beautiful women in the Russian beauty contest. Paul bid members of the first church – not to marry because The End was coming, and so was Jesus. He was a no-show. Paul, latched on to our genitals, and the church has been shaking them like a Pitbull ever since in order to get our attention, and trillions in tithe.

Today, we saw Trump trying to run their Holy Blackmail scam. Remaining neutral as a non-believer, is almost impossible. The Christian-right wants to go to war with the Democrats. Republican women, should jump ship.

The abortion issue was invented by Paul Weyrich to counter the Civil Rights Movement that was opposed by Southern Baptists. Robert P. George founded the Witherspoon think tank. He says religious disobedience is required. History is about religious wars. The End Time is a tool for religious terrorists.

“President Donald Trump on Tuesday savaged House Democrats’ impeachment proceedings in a six-page letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi that read like a collection of his most vitriolic tweets.

The fiery missive, frequently punctuated with exclamation points, came loaded with hyperbolic assertions — including the president’s claim that “more due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials” and his accusation that Pelosi and House Democrats “view democracy as your enemy!”

Call to civil disobedience[edit]

The declaration vows civil disobedience if Christians feel that their rights to civil liberties of free exercise of religion and freedom of speech are being violated. It states that Christianity has taught through the centuries that civil disobedience is not only permitted, but sometimes required,[8] and refers to Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s defense of the rights and duties of religious conscience in his Letter from Birmingham Jail.[9]

One of the drafters, Princeton University professor Robert P. George, stated, “We certainly hope it doesn’t come to that. However, we see case after case of challenges to religious liberty”, including laws which he claims would force health care workers to assist in abortions or pharmacists to carry abortifacient drugs or birth control.[8] George continued, “When the limits of conscience are reached and you cannot comply, it’s better to suffer a wrong than to do it.”[8]

I began this post at 6:30 A.M. and finished at 10:00. I took nap, awoke, turned on the news, and am hearing POTUS sent the Speaker of the House a bombastic hate letter that is a Historic Declaration, or, so he says! Trump is Disney for the Christian-right who have done nothing to stop this rambling preacher-man. He mentioned the Salem With Trials. As predicted Make-believe Political Fiction has bled into real fiction. I am going to promote this blog and my Prophetic Bond Tale. Real authors are threatened, as is the Free Press. Donald Trump is trying to take over the Written Word. Only Miriam and Victoria can stop him!

We have entered into the New Twiglight Zone with the revelations about Jonah Puffhausen. Reality, Ilussion, Historic-Fiction, and a New Politics, is merging in my newspaper. I am considering running ‘The Royal Janitor’ as a serial, a play by play melodrama that will contain the elements of religious revelation. I bid my loyal readers to store this entire blog on blue ray or cloud. I will be making real enemies. I serve my nation and the alliance with Britain that Churchill made. I know Ian Flaming approves of my experiment in writing. Our Intelligence Community is being destroyed, along with the State Department. An Angel is my Deep Throat.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is angrily objecting to the House of Representatives’ articles of impeachment, accusing Democrats of “perversion of justice and abuse of power” in their effort to remove him from office.

In a fiery letter Tuesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the eve of his expected impeachment, Trump maintained that he did nothing wrong in seeking foreign investigation of political rivals, and he attacked Democrats for focusing on impeachment rather than other issues.

Trump also repeated his objections to the process of the House inquiry, claiming “more due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials.”

Trump says he doesn’t believe his letter will change anything, but that he is registering his objections “for the purpose of history.”

Meanwhile at the Capitol, House Democrats and Republicans sparred over the rules of debate for Wednesday’s historic votes on impeaching Trump, dispatching the lofty rhetoric of constitutional duty for the rugged politics of the House action and Senate trial that is expected to follow.

Trump administration officials are taking steps to stabilize the U.S. relationship with Ukraine amid an impeachment inquiry that has badly damaged ties between the two countries.

The Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience is a manifesto issued by OrthodoxCatholic, and Evangelical Christian leaders[1][2][3] to affirm support of “the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty“.[4] It was drafted on October 20, 2009, and released November 20, 2009, having been signed by more than 150 American religious leaders.[5] On the issue of marriage, the declaration objects not only to same-sex marriage but also to the general erosion of the “marriage culture” with the specter of divorce, greater acceptance of infidelity and the uncoupling of marriage from childbearing.[6]

The Declaration’s website encourages supporters to sign the declaration, and it counts 551,130 signatures as of July 18, 2015[update].[7]

Call to civil disobedience[edit]

The declaration vows civil disobedience if Christians feel that their rights to civil liberties of free exercise of religion and freedom of speech are being violated. It states that Christianity has taught through the centuries that civil disobedience is not only permitted, but sometimes required,[8] and refers to Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s defense of the rights and duties of religious conscience in his Letter from Birmingham Jail.[9]

One of the drafters, Princeton University professor Robert P. George, stated, “We certainly hope it doesn’t come to that. However, we see case after case of challenges to religious liberty”, including laws which he claims would force health care workers to assist in abortions or pharmacists to carry abortifacient drugs or birth control.[8] George continued, “When the limits of conscience are reached and you cannot comply, it’s better to suffer a wrong than to do it.”[8]

Catholic Archbishop of WashingtonDonald Wuerl‘s office was restrained about the issue of civil disobedience, indicating that the prelate was not calling on the faithful to “do anything specific”.[6][10]

In August 2012, the Manhattan Declaration’s call to “civil disobedience” was cited in a lawsuit under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, in which the Beachy Amish-Mennonite Christian Brotherhood is accused of helping a Baptist woman kidnap to Nicaragua her daughter as part of a child custody dispute with her former lesbian partner.[11] Liberty University School of Law was also a named defendant in the lawsuit, because of alleged instruction to law students that “the correct course of action for such a situation would be to ‘engage in civil disobedience’ and defy court orders”.[11]

Signatories[edit]

Notable signatories include:[12]

Drafting committee[edit]

The document was written by evangelical leader Charles ColsonPrinceton University law professor Robert P. George and Beeson Divinity School dean Timothy George.[10]

Criticism[edit]

Some religious leaders have criticized and protested the Manhattan Declaration, calling its principles in general, and its opposition to same-sex marriage in particular, contrary to the teachings of Jesus.[15][16][17] Catholic scholar Anthony Stevens-Arroyo wrote, “While two wars are being waged, with unemployment in double digits, the financial system of the world in suspense, these religious leaders declare that abortion, stem-cell use and same sex marriage override any other Gospel value. (You won’t find Jesus saying anything about abortion or stem cells in the Gospel, but the Savior said a great deal about the homeless, the sick, and the hungry.) It’s cheating to speak pious platitudes about Christianity and ignore Jesus’ words.”[18]

Some discussed the document as a political strategy, regarding it as the religious right’s effort to re-establish its relevance in the public square,[19][20] but others noted that younger generations of evangelicals and Catholics were less likely to oppose same-sex marriage and more likely to prioritize economic issues over social, and that the document was thus unlikely to win them over.[20][21] Stevens-Arroyo criticized fellow Catholics who signed the declaration for aligning themselves with evangelicals in what he described as opposition to the separation of church and state.[22]

The declaration’s invocation of Martin Luther King and of the principles of civil disobedience has also been questioned.[23][24] An editorial in the Los Angeles Times characterized the invocation of King as “specious” and criticized the document, belittling the “anecdotes” regarding restrictions on Christians’ religious freedom as “of the sort radio talk-show hosts purvey” or from outside the United States, and noting that federal law already exempts “believers in some cases from having to comply with applicable laws.”[25]

Apple app[edit]

Ambox current red.svgThis section needs to be updated. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. (December 2016)

In response to a petition which argued the Manhattan Declaration app promoted bigotry and homophobia, which received 7,000 signatures, Apple removed the app from iPhones and iPads, in November 2010, and later from iTunes.[26][27] Apple told CNN that the app had been removed because it “violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people”.[27] The app had originally been rated by Apple as a +4, meaning that it contained no material deemed objectionable.[26][27]

A month later, organizers of the Manhattan Declaration resubmitted a modified version of the app.[28] The new version lacks a “quiz”, which, in the old version, had asked questions about political issues and assigned a score based on a set of normative answers.[29] As of December 10, 2010, more than 45,000 had signed a petition to have it reinstated.[28] Charles Colson voiced apprehension that Apple’s move could have negative implications for more Christian apps, stating: “There is nothing in the Manhattan Declaration that is not rooted in Scripture. So if that becomes the offense then all the other apps would be subject to the same charge.”[28][30]

Get out of California and the Republican Party!

Posted on December 21, 2020 by Royal Rosamond Press

Gavin Newsom is under attack by fake evangelical rednecks who took over my families party co-founded by my kin, John Fremont. This is Destiny at work, because yesterday I declared myself a member of the Getty family and their allies. I debated about bringing Christine into this camp, and this morning I found great resolve. In having a after conversation with my therapist (Barbara) I made a note to talk about the second step in AA, and this adage;

“The best way to describe a dysfunctional family, is to describe a functional one!

I brought all members of my natal family together to discuss the falling out of OUR gifted members, both very talented. One is a world famous artist. Why not both of them? I can not reveal all of my revelation because the uncreative parasites that have devided us are wanting – just the money!

Huckabee says Newsom is about to lose California. I will prove all Republican Christians who voted for Trump lost God – and the party founded by my kin!

GET OUT – BLASPHEMERS OF THE FALSE PROPHETS! You have brought ruin upon the whole world!

— California Gov. Gavin Newsom has had a rough year. The next one might be even tougher as a recall effort appears to be gaining momentum, fueled partly by outrage over the first-term Democrat dining with friends at an opulent restaurant while telling state residents to spurn social gatherings and stay home.

It’s not uncommon in California for residents to seek recalls but they rarely get on the ballot – and even fewer succeed. Several launched against Newsom faded but another attempt is drawing greater attention as his fortunes change while he enters a critical stretch in his governorship.

Newsom received high praise for his aggressive approach to the coronavirus last spring, when he issued the nation’s first statewide stay-at-home order. Now there is growing public angst over subsequent health orders that have shuttered schools and businesses and a massive unemployment benefits fraud scandal, while a public shaming continues for his ill-advised dinner at the French Laundry in Napa Valley, an establishment that features a white truffle and caviar dinner for $1,200 per person

Photos of the dinner – a birthday party for a Newsom confidante who also is a lobbyist – emerged showing the governor without a mask at a time when he was imploring people not to socialize with friends and wear a face covering when going out and around others.

Recall organizers say they have collected more than half the nearly 1.5 million petition signatures needed to place the recall on the ballot, and they have until mid-March to hit the required threshold.

Gingrich and Huckabee back Newsom recall effort

By CARLA MARINUCCI

12/11/2020 10:11 PM ESTShare on FacebookShare on Twitter

OAKLAND, Calif. — The California activist movement to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom just got a national shot in the arm from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, two former Republican leaders who still have large conservative followings.

The bid remains a long shot in a state where Democratic President-elect Joe Biden won 63.5 percent of the vote and Republicans have no statewide officeholders. But Newsom’s attendance last month at an expensive dinner party for a top lobbyist, combined with mounting frustrations with pandemic closures, have sowed discontent among residents.https://e8a7e2cf81cdd0c3fdb5ca6904efc04e.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

“The ‘blue wave’ that the left-wing media spent months talking about disappeared in California,” Gingrich said Friday in a statement to POLITICO, referring to Republicans taking back four House seats Democrats won in 2018. “This is a direct result of Gavin Newsom’s destructive leadership that has crippled small businesses and sent billions of dollars of California COVID-19 jobless benefits to criminals across the nation.”

Gingrich nodded to Newsom’s stay-home orders, which now apply to most residents, and recent findings by county prosecutors that crime rings have worked with California inmates to draw hundreds of millions in unemployment benefits.

The Gingrich endorsement was touted by California conservative recall backers as a major breakthrough that will boost fundraising, volunteerism and exposure for their recall effort. California signature efforts almost always rely on millions of dollars to reach voters in a state of 40 million residents.

“Newt Gingrich’s endorsement will bring us into the national spotlight,’’ Rescue California Chair Tom Del Beccaro, a leading proponent of the recall movement, told POLITICO. “He’s all in: he will support us through social media, with donor phone calls, zoom meetings and fundraising emails.’’

Gingrich’s support came a day after Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, now a radio talk show host, tweeted his endorsement of the California recall to his 1.7 million followers.

“California’s liberal elite send their kids to private school & dine out while lecturing YOU about danger of leaving your home,’’ he said. “Governor Newsom’s shutdown holds families hostage. It’s time to go @GavinNewsom, I’m backing the recall,” he said, while including a link to the recall drive’s fundraising page.

Fox News has continued airing stories about Newsom and California, both a favorite foil of conservatives, who oppose lockdowns and have taken pleasure in accusing the governor of hypocrisy for his French Laundry dinner. While Newsom did not necessarily break rules by attending the dinner, his attendance came as he and the state discouraged residents from gathering with people from other households.

Newsom campaign spokesperson Dan Newman emphasized the effort was backed by supporters of President Donald Trump, who is unpopular in deep blue California.

“Interesting timing at same moment the Supreme Court rejects Trump’s last ditch effort to overturn an election. Trump, Gingrich, Faulconer, and Cox are embracing the same playbook, the same refusal to play by the rules,” Newman said in a statement, referring to former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and former GOP gubernatorial candidate John Cox, both of whom are considering a run for California’s top office.

“These anti-vaccine pro-Trump extremists would rather create an expensive sideshow instead of working together to distribute the vaccine and restart our economy,” Newman added.

Tom Del Becarro, who is working in conjunction with another recall leader, Orrin Heatlie, said that after six failed attempts to recall Newsom, the efforts are catching on nationally because the Democratic governor’s actions have hurt businesses and taxpayers. “Half of the nation’s homeless population is California — everyone is paying for this,” he said.

Federal data shows that nearly 27 percent of the nation’s homeless population was in California as of January 2019, while the state has roughly 12 percent of the nation’s population.

A Sacramento Superior Court judge last month gave recall backers until March to collect the needed 1,495,709 verified signatures. That number represents 12 percent of the vote for governor in 2018, the minimum required by law. Backers claim to have 5,000 volunteer petition circulators and are also collecting signatures online.

The campaign has now submitted 297,567 signatures, the secretary of state reported Thursday. That is well over the 10 percent threshold necessary to trigger signature verification in counties.

The California Republican Party has already officially endorsed the movement, as have half a dozen key GOP party leaders in the state. Among them are Don Wagner, an Orange County supervisor and lead proponent for OpenCalNow, a group fighting Newsom’s pandemic closures; former California GOP chair Tirso del Junco; former GOP chair Frank Visco; and Mike Antonovich, former Los Angeles County supervisor and a former California GOP chair.
