Campaign To Oust California Gov. Newsom Passes 1.2 Million Signatures
“Organizers of recall petition to oust Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom from office say they have surpassed 1.2 million signatures as state residents express their anger over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A recall will go to a statewide vote if 1.5 million Californians sign on, which means just 300,000 more signatures are needed by March 17 to take the issue to voters.
The “Recall Gavin Newsom” campaign, which sells merchandise like coronavirus face shields emblazoned with the slogan, in December won a court case to extend the signature deadline from Nov. 17. A Superior Court judge ruled that the pandemic hurt efforts to circulate petitions.”

“Lockdownistan just reopened — I wonder why”
I’m a little late on this one, but:
I guess you saw that Governor Gavin Newsom of California lifted the stay-at-home orders across the state and reopened the state.
Well, how about that.
Was that because the numbers started looking great?
After all, Newsom had had all kinds of crazy tiers with metrics it seemed impossible to meet in order to allow this or that degree of opening.
Yes, California seems to have passed the peak of its recent surge of deaths, but it’s still far higher than it’s been at any time since the whole thing began.
Naturally I favor reopening, so I’m not criticizing the governor for that part. I’m just wondering how he justifies locking the state down when the numbers were so much better, and opening it when they’re so much worse (there are 50 percent fewer ICU beds available than when the order went into effect). If the state can reopen now, then why not in June, or any other time?
Of course, there is no answer.
They can’t answer, remember, because you and I are too dumb to understand their advanced thinking. Remember the Tweet I shared with you just the other day from the Bay Area’s KTVU: “State health officials said they rely on a very complex set of measurements that would confuse and potentially mislead the public if they were made public.”
So what could have motivated this move?
I can’t know for sure, but I’m rather partial to the explanatory power of this graphic:
