Sean is finally back from his wedding, and he and Joshua are taking the occasion to discuss Kevin de Leon, among other things. We also get into a discussion about the new border wall prototypes being showcased in San Diego. If that wasn’t enough, we have a lengthy talk about the culture in Sacramento that forced over 300 women to come forward with stories of abuse or sexual misconduct at the hands of our very own legislators.
California Senate Pro Tempore Kevin de León has announced that he is going to be running to represent California in the United States Senate by trying to defeat current incumbent Dianne Feinstein who has been California’s Senator since 1992.
Kevin de León isn’t running against Dianne Feinstein so much as he’s running against Donald Trump and that should worry California voters. While being the newest or loudest anti-Trumper may be a winning strategy in the liberal echo chambers of Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Francisco there isn’t anything positive or reaffirming to be gained by running as de León the demagogue. It doesn’t help that de León seems to have missed both that 3,916,209 Californians voted for Trump and also that Trump is our President and will remain so until at least the start of 2021 whether he likes it or not, impeachment myth notwithstanding.
By offering those nearly 4 million California voters nothing but showboating & scorn he gives them every reason to stay or vote against him. By constantly antagonizing Trump he all but guarantees that every bill he would want to push to accomplish anything legislatively will be a nothing but a dead letter upon arrival. Read More
Tonight’s show features Amanda McGuire, President of the CSUF College Republicans, talking about the Democrats coming after her and other topics of the day.
We discuss the recall election lawsuit, the CA GOP circular firing squad and if there’s any hope in fixing the CA GOP, CA becoming a “Sanctuary State”, Dianne Feinstein tangling with Kevin De León and Betsy DeVoss and finally the news of Harvey Weinstein for some local-ish flavor. Read More
Today I will heading down to ARCO at 519 S. Harbor Blvd here in Fullerton to participate in the recall effort of CA State Senator Josh Newman. I will be there while KFI640’s John & Ken Show as well as KOGO600’s Carl DeMaio live broadcast while attempting to collect the required signatures. Many people will likely show up both for and against the recall and each will have their own reasons and their own beliefs. But why am I supporting the recall of Senator Newman?
I’ve been asked in various outlets and in person how I could support removing an official who was duly elected.
I’ve been asked if its fair to recall Senator Newman simply because he voted to our raise taxes.
I’ve been asked if there’s even a legal case to recall Senator Josh Newman.
I’ve also been accused of being used in a game of partisan bickering and political grandstanding. Being told that I’m nothing more than a tool of a party that lost all power when Newman beat Ling Ling Change thereby securing the Super-Majority for the Democratic Party.
I’ve also been yelled at quite a bit both online and off for my support of this contentious effort.
Obviously anything with a partisan angle or flair will allow people to adorn their blinders and lock arms with their tribe. For most the very answers to the above questions will depend on whom you ask being that (D)s will say that there is no case or justification for a recall whilst (R)s will clearly state the opposite.
None of that matters to me. As I have never been a member of a political party I am unaffected by tribal political grandstanding. Therefore I am going to answer these questions from the perspective of somebody who voted for Newman and yet is supporting his removal from office. Read More
