The handwriting is on the wall -

Concerns about urban crime also propelled developer Rick Caruso in the Los Angeles mayor’s race. Caruso, a former Republican who recently switched to Democrat, ran as the tough-on-crime candidate, vowing to put 1,500 new cops on the beat. His main opponent, Rep. Karen Bass, ran on her record as a prominent Democrat and years of outreach to LA’s Black and Latinx communities. Caruso’s surprisingly strong showing will force a runoff in November.

The California results follow another upset in the Virginia governor’s race last year, where Republican newcomer Glenn Youngkin beat Democratic titan Terry McCullough in a race that hinged largely on culture wars over school curricula. State and local races don’t automatically translate into identical outcomes at the national level, but it’s hard to think of any progressive policies that are catching on with mainstream voters, while some — especially “defund the police” — are utterly dreadful.

Prepare yourselves for permanent minority status'
The implications are ominous for President Biden and his fellow Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. “If national Democrats don’t wake up to what happened to progressives … this cycle prepare yourselves for permanent minority status,” Jim Kessler, a long-time Democratic operative now at the Third Way think tank, tweeted after the California primaries.

Here's a look as to why Nevada County can now call itself SOLID BLUE:

Last nights election counts:

Gov

Newsom-Dem 51% Brian Dahle-Repub 33%

Senator

Padila Dem 52%
Meuser-Repub-20%

House Dist 1

Jones-Dem 48%
Kiley-Repub-30%

Assembly Dist 1

Sandwith- Dem 48%
Meghan Dahle- Repub 36%

Add to that LISA SWARTHOUT with a solid lead in Dist. 3 Supervisor and NATALIE ADONA with nearly 70% for Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters
and you get the clear picture that the Dems and Liberal candidates basically routed the Repubs and Conservatives in Nevada County.
Keep in mind there are votes yet to come so things could change.


Gregory

Newsom-Dem 51% Not Newsome-Dem 49%

Padila Dem 52% Not Padilla-Dem 48%

Jones-Dem 48% Not Jones-Dem 52%

Sandwith-Dem 48% Not Sandwith-Dem 52%

Supervisor and Clerk positions are non partisan

Keep in mind there are votes yet to be counted,

Paul Emery

That's correct Gregory. So far the leading candidates are solid blue. You are calculating that ALL the remaining votes will go Repub which is never the case.

Gregory

None of the "leading candidates" have a commanding lead.

The little people are fighting back against the spawn of soros and he has a spotlight on his nefarious conspiracy to destroy law and order -

The US currently has at least 75 Soros-Backed social justice prosecutors, supported through campaign dollars and/or Soros-funded progressive infrastructure groups.
These 75 prosecutors represent more than1 in 5 Americans or more than72 million people, including half of America’s 50 most populous cities and counties.

Soros uses a series of shell organizations, affiliates, and pass-through committees to steer contributions to both candidates and his robust support network for progressive prosecutors, which provide gravitas andperks to preferred prosecutors.
These efforts have followed the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, and have coincided with a nationwide crime wave.

Where do you get those numbers George? RCP averages show Biden with 30.7 consensus averages job approval. Here's a link

my typo mistake. Biden has 39.7 approval.

Gregory

"All speculation on your part Gregory that practically all votes will go swing your way."

Funny, punch. You're assuming just what you're saying I'm assuming.

Paul Emery

That's the only way your numbers hold up Gregory. Virtually all votes not for the leaders have to go your way.

Gregory

No, but I see why you'd think that. It makes it easier for you to cling to today's leader staying there.

Don Bessee

The ponytail of ignorance is hiding behind a generalized poll but the voters feel this way -

In a new poll, Joe Biden has a 28% and 27% approval on inflation and gas prices with 71% and 72% disapproving respectively. All I want to know is who are the 28% and 27%? Why do they approve?

Eighty-three percent say that the economy is “extremely or very important” to how they will vote, and 80 percent say inflation is “extremely or very important” to how they will vote. Seventy-four percent say gas prices are “extremely or very important.”

That may be Don but George referred specifically to: "RCP numbers just out on Bumblebrain’s overall approval rating – drumroll please – 25% approve, 61% disapprove."
Those numbers are simply not correct. George can you provide a link to where you got those numbers

Don Bessee

Much like the ponytail of ignorance the long record of rancid russian dressing and TDS will never go away and does not age well just like the ponytail of ignorance -

White House chief of staff Ron Klain’s old tweets blasting former President Trump over $3 gas prices haven't aged well as America now faces record highs for fuel.

Klain went after Trump in 2018 as gas prices rose toward the $3 mark and even wrote that Democrats would be happier if the media focused on the fuel prices instead of the then-president calling for a probe into surveillance on his 2016 campaign.

"Health care premiums up, gas prices rising, manufacturers fleeing," Klain wrote in June 2018. "So much winning! Thanks Trump!"

Emery has his chest out proud a can be. Probably feels important like when he carried the bags for a general instead of a colonel in USAF Boy Scouts.

Feel real proud that Nevada County voted for Newsome when fuel around her is $6+ per gallon and Newsome can't use those beloved executive orders and grant a fuel tax holidays to the working people that the Dems love to say they represent.

As for the District Supervisor race, if no one gets 50% then it's the top two in November with no Valentina to screw up the election. Could be different with that dynamic.

As for Megan Dahle, who cares about Nevada County,,,win Shasta and she'll cruise. Again no other Repub to siphon off votes.

What we have here is a bunch of Bay Area folks who moved her to get out of the mess they created there and now vote the same way here. You really want to turn this into a small version of San Francisco? You are willing to bring that crap to this beautiful place we call home? Moron....

Second... his love interest lit prof (Sally Kellermann) tells him she was very disappointed that he didn't turn in his own work, and whoever he hired to write the paper didn't know the first thing about Vonnegut.

Third... an angry phone call with Vonnegut with f-bombs and a promise to not pay.

That encapsulated my views on writing Bullshite papers for lit classes.

@ 8:03 am. re: Sally Kellerman.

I met Sally K two or three times back in the day. She was producing some skid row low budget movie for a couple of money guys from NY or LA and I was hired. We had a few meetings. Back then, being a hick from the sticks with tics, I asked someone, “Who is Sally Kellerman?”, since her name rang with everybody but me. Never heard of her. Anyway, someone said she was in the original cast of Hair and the cast got busted for taking off her clothes on stage. I remembered hearing something about that and told the guy who answered my “Who is Sally Kellerman?” question that I was sorry I missed that. :)

She was a nice lady, business like, and the whole project fell apart when the money men were BSers and did not have the funds to start production. An early introduction to Hollywood. Never saw any Hair either.

Paul 11:49 - Actually, that's one statement from Trump I can completely agree with. Although the protest on the 6th was marred by a handful of idiots, it scared the hell out of the swamp as to just how many saw the corruption and evil in our govt.
Trump is now too old for the next election cycle.
There are plenty of other conservatives who can take up the mantle of trying to save our nation, although it's getting to look near impossible. The FBI and the IRS are openly corrupt and in bed with the Dems so any real challenge to the swamp will be a tough, uphill slog.

8 years ago? Ok, “The Republican want to put y’all back in chains.”—VP Joe Biden to mainly black audience.

I see no difference between the Dems playing their perennial race card and scare mongering and the Jan 6 Committee. It’s the only card they have left and it’s been so overplayed that folks with two brain cells left tune it out.

“Trump is destroying the public’s trust in our institutions!” No Paul, Trump merely exposed the rot at the core and any faith in our institutions was destroyed when exposed and for very good reasons. Now days when I hear the FBI did this or that, I wonder if they are peddling another conspiracy theory or just stomping on dissents. But, the Deep State has six ways to Sunday to get back at you.

‘Trump is destroying our trust in our institutions.’ Good one, Paul.

Don Bessee

Cant hide the truth for long -

The intelligence failure was made worse by Pelosi’s decision to disassemble the police department’s intelligence unit that tracked threats on social media. The chatter on social media before January 6 might have alerted the police to the potential seriousness of the protest.

“The social media unit was immediately and essentially dismantled under the new leadership,” the report said. “New office reassignments and steering away from the concepts of having subject matter experts may have contributed to the tragedy.”

“Individuals with the most experience extrapolating open-source material were not tasked with reviewing social media to glean intel related to the event,” the report stated.

As Pelosi failed at her task of protecting the Capitol, Trump had taken action to secure the area. Former Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller testified before Congress in 2021 that Donald Trump authorized National Guard Troops to secure the area around the Capitol. Just the News reported Trump wanted 20,000 troops, but Congress rejected the request.

“Do whatever is necessary to protect demonstrators that were executing their constitutionally protected rights,” Miller testified Trump told him.

"Attorney general's office investigation records obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request show that fewer than a dozen ballots could be linked to Fuentes, not enough to make a difference in all but the tightest local races. "

Also "Prosecutors were apparently unable to prove the most serious charges, dropping three felony counts alleging that Fuentes filled out one voter's ballot and forged signatures on some of the four ballots she illegally returned for people who were not family members."

George Rebane

PaulE 308pm - Well, the Trumpists and Dems both believe that the 6J event was "the greatest movement" in American history. Where they differ was the reason it was great - the Dems with the ridiculous charge that it was an organized insurrection to bring down our government, and the Trumpists that it was the largest, spontaneous, unorganized popular expression of utter frustration with the conduct and outcome of the previous November's election. Now what do you think happened on 6jan21?

And more specifically, do you think that at tonight's kabuki theater the Dems are going to show any evidence that supports the Capitol penetration as being spontaneous, unorganized, and not having any of the preparations for the replacement government even the most amateurish insurrections have demonstrated over the years?

Paul Emery

Just reporting the facts Gregory. Of course anything is possible but the reality is that's all they have for now. Not likely they'll find more since she plead guilty and it seems to be a done deal. So Biden won by around 10,457 so if you subtract a dozen from that (and that's generous that leaves 10445 to go. I know this is important to you so let me know what you find.

It's hard to imagine the Democrats think that the American electorate is so stupid as to take tonight's 6J charade as a legitimate congressional proceeding. Tell me it isn't so.

‘Joe Biden’s Approval Rating Hits Disastrous New Low: 39.7 Percent’

“Joe Biden’s nationwide public-approval rating in the RealClearPolitics poll average has just hit a new low: 39.7 percent, the lowest of his presidency. This is only the second time (the first being in February) that Biden has dropped below 40 (Biden’s age hasn’t been below 40 since 1982). His 55 percent disapproval rating puts him 15.3 points under water, also the worst of his presidency.”

Going into George's archives for a little “told them so”

10 Jan 2011 – (re Gabby Giffords shooting) - In an open public gathering involving political figures and a large crowd, one can ask why there was no law abiding citizen there carrying a concealed weapon that could have been used to save lives…. In days of yore, such wanton killings, that we now witness regularly, ranged between extremely rare to impossible. The shooter then knew that if he drew his gun, there would be at least one, and more than likely several guns, instantly pointed at him.

Not from RR - 7 people is minimum to safely gain control of a psychotic patient. One for head; one for torso; 1 each limb: one to assist where needed. The more the better. Most become cooperative at 10-12 or more. Even our old paleo-brain recognizes really bad odds.

These days, it seems we rarely give shooters really bad odds. At Uvalde, it was 19 to 1. OK, 1 plus a door.

12 Jan 2011 - Our VP Joe Biden, currently in Afghanistan, concluded on camera that in fighting the Taliban we “are breaking the momentum” of that raghead contingent.

One man’s opinion

‘Jan. 6 panel's case against Trump: Doomed to become the latest debunked elite narrative?’
A string of recent revelations has raised questions about security posture of Capitol under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prior to breach.

Paul Emery


George

This is a very fundamental question when discussing Jan 6

In your opinion did Pence have the constitutional authority fo fulfill trumps desire to have him overturn the election? Here's a recent quote from Trump:

""Actually, what they are saying, is that Mike Pence did have the right to change the outcome, and they now want to take that right away. Unfortunately, he didn't exercise that power, he could have overturned the Election!"

George Rebane

PaulE 859am - Paul, did you answer my 449pm?

Paul Emery

The question was:

"And more specifically, do you think that at tonight's kabuki theater the Dems are going to show any evidence that supports the Capitol penetration as being spontaneous, unorganized, and not having any of the preparations for the replacement government even the most amateurish insurrections have demonstrated over the years? "

George

The Dems are presenting their case that was revealed in last nights testimony and that is that the instigation of the breakin and invasion of the Capitol was pre planned cheered on by Trump. The Repubs chose not to participate in the hearings so their side will not be heard. Do you contend that the Proud Boys etc did not intend to break into the Capitol and only did that spontaneously? Of course there were others that were lured into participating once it started happening but video footage shows beyond doubt that the Proud Boys etc came organized and with a plan as well as devices to smash windows and doors and with a supply of chemical sprays.

Oh Scott @ 11:03 am

I know, I know the answer. Pick me, ooo, ouzo, my hand is up!

Ok, no spoiler alerts.

George Rebane

PaulE 937am - "The Repubs chose not to participate in the hearings so their side will not be heard." That's utter bullshit; the whole nation knows that Pelosi rejected the Repubs' nominees for the committee who would have provided a counter argument to the Dems' version of 6J happenings - that has ALWAYS been the SOP for how congressional committees operate. What say you to that?

And you've said nothing about the absurd charge that the Capitol riot was an organized insurrection to do away with America's democracy and replace our government with one standing in the wings. I'm still waiting.

Paul Emery

What is there to say about it George? Trump himself told Pence to deny the certification of the election, which he refused to do. The intent of the Proud Boys and others was to disrupt the proceedings to prevent the final certification of the election. That is well documented.

This is his instruction to Pence as part of his Jan 6 speech "So I hope Mike has the courage to do what he has to do. And I hope he doesn't listen to the RINOs and the stupid people that he's listening to"


He also said: "If we allow this group of people to illegally take over our country because it's illegal when the votes are illegal when the way they got there is illegal when the states that vote are given false and fraudulent information."

That certainly implies that he supports the disruption of the election. what more can I say?

Now, what is your opinion as to whether Pence constitutionally had that right on Jan 6 to stop the election process.

George Rebane

PaulE 1239pm - Is my 449pm question really that difficult? It sought your opinion of whether what happened on 6jan21 was an insurrection - to topple the current government in favor of a new one waiting in wings. Please give it another try.

Re Pence's constitutional power over the proceedings to certify the vote. First, we presume that the congressional certification was never meant to be a pro-forma kabuki ritual. Were that not so, then all attendees could have been replaced by their cardboard cutouts, or they could have mailed it in. Second, given that the certification, by those gathered, was to be performed after due consideration of the submitted materials, then the designated process had to have the ability for more than one canned outcome.

Constitutional scholars are still debating what that decision space should look like - e.g. accept as submitted; reject submittal and return to states with instructions for resubmittal; table proceeding to give time for further study of any material contentions, inviting both sides to come and testify before resuming the certification process; and so on. You and yours, of course, were awaiting a kabuki performance; the other half of the country had concerns about the election.

Paul Emery

George

So I assume are you are part of the half that has"concerns"? Is having 'concerns" justification for not certifying the election therefore leaving Trump as President at least till it's settled?


Paul Emery

Okay George I'll give it another go.

I believe the intent of the riot (or whatever) was to disrupt the proceedings for that day which included the certification of the election by VP Pence. That delay was what Trump had in mind in his instructions to Pence, which Pence refused to do because he believed it to be unconstitutional.


There is lots of information out there but this is official and part of the legal proceedings against Proud Boy Charles Donohoe, "In a newly filed statement of offense, prosecutors said that “Donohoe understood that the purpose of the rally in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, was to stop the certification of the Electoral College vote.”

Also, the " new one waiting in wings" ,as you put it was of course Trump staying as President.
