Newsom Obsession with Gun Owner Control Reflects His Own Self-Control Issues

Vultures of a feather: Fellow self-control-challenged, gun-grabbing totalitarians Hillary Clinton and Gavin Newsom mug for the squealing useful idiots. (Gavin Newsom/Facebook)

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom’s so-called “Safety for All” initiative will appear on the November ballot even if bills proposing the same kinds of infringements are passed in the legislature, The Los Angeles Times reported, noting sufficient signatures have been validated to qualify the measure.  At least one lawmaker, another Democrat, has called on Newsom to withdraw his initiative if the “gunpocalypse” bills under consideration pass, saying it will “confuse the voters.”

Newsom’s initiative will require registration of ammunition purchases and ban not just the sale, but the possession of standard capacity magazines, among other mandates. A survey by The Field Poll conducted in the wake of the San Bernardino political and media firestorm shows Californians who have never learned better overwhelmingly spooked into supporting such measures to disarm them.

“Enough massacres, death, tears, and hate — it’s time to take action and save lives,” Newsom declared in a statement demonstrating shrewd exploitation of tested  buzz terms designed to manipulate the ignorant and the fearful, all the while scoring brainless and lying Social Justice Warrior points. “The Safety for All initiative gives California voters the opportunity to keep guns and ammo out of the hands of violent, dangerous, hateful people [and that’s next–DC]. America has too many guns and too much hate. The result is the massacre in Orlando, and dozens of other gun deaths every single day.”

That Californians don’t see through this character – or do and pull the lever regardless, shows the same kind of citizenship corruption, dependency and incompetence that defines “progressive” enclaves and urban areas. It brings to mind nothing so much as the notorious quip from convicted former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards, so confident in his grip on the electorate “The only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.”

In much of California, that last bit might even give a political campaign a boost, and bring down furious condemnation and accusations of being as hater on anyone who might object instead of approve.

Newsom fits the profile of someone who can‘t (or won’t) control himself, from cucking his “friend” and campaign manager, to “show[ing] up drunk for the vigil of a mortally wounded police officer.”

Then there was his “underage date, who was seen drinking at one social function they attended,” and his checking in to rehab, as documented in another LA Times report.

“Newsom has left a trail of betrayed friends and colleagues, many of whom say they will never forgive him,” that report noted. “The voters forgave him, though; they reelected him with 72% of the vote.”

This is the miscreant who would control you and me, lending credence to the suspicion that those who cannot trust themselves dare not admit that others do not share their pathetic moral defects.  And that “progressive” voters willingly surrender their trust and rights along with political power to such degenerates makes it fair to speculate about their character as well.

It also makes it fair to register concern about another phenomenon that appears to becoming a trend that could threaten us all:

“California’s skyrocketing housing costs, taxes prompt exodus of residents,” The Mercury News is reporting.  Not that experience has taught many of them anything, as has been evident when they bring their failed political inclinations along with them and foul their new nests.

  1. California Democrats- Driving the law-abiding out of the state for over forty years.
    But Gavin Newsom thinks there’s more work yet to be done.

  2. It really doesn’t matter as NO ONE who serves within our governments – state or general (federal) – was ever delegated that authority, it was retained by the people.

    What does matter is that we have law enforcement, military (unlawfully used on US soil), contracted that will enforce those unlawful edict. There will be those that are “just following orders” and “just doing their jobs” as *terrorists against the American people until it is their turn to be destroyed and to lose everything (then they will feel betrayed – as the American people will have been betrayed by them) for their unlawful actions against the American people; and for their NOT KEEPING their Oath.

    Then their will be those that are willingly and knowingly traitors and terrorists to our people, our nation, working to destroy America from within. Basically we have no government until we replace them with people who will TAKE and KEEP the Oaths required of them. That is where we are today. Are there problems that go along with that, logistics to be figured out, etc? Yes. But the problem is simple, the people who are currently serving – and that have been serving prior to them – did break not only their Oaths (felony, Perjury, etc), but the contract they were under. THEY did it. Our US Constitution is in writing, it is available to all that serve, all that live within our nation, all that live outside of our nation that want to know what is allowed, what is NOT allowed, and what is allowed only under certain circumstances and then only certain actions are ALLOWED to be done. Once again it is ALL in writing and accessible to all.

    We have no lawful government, not any person serving has the lawful authority to hold any American accountable for anything done; nor do they have the lawful backing to represent Americans the USA for any reason at all; etc. They broke both the oath and the CONTRACT they serve under, from which they get the authority they are ALLOWED to use. the only reason we are where we are today is that few READ the US Constitution and their state Constitution. They just don’t bother.

    Dr. Vieira put it this way: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides… The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights. The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.

    … the famous case Norton v. Shelby County… The Court said: “An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties. It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”

    And that applies to any (and all) governmental action outside of the Constitution…”. What are the defining characteristics of a limited government? They are its disabilities; what it does not have legal authority to do.

    Look at the First Amendment… What does it do? It guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion. But how does it do that? I quote: “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press” etcetera.

    “Congress shall make no law;” that’s a statement of an absence of power. That’s a statement of a disability.” (end Dr. Vieira quote)

    28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

  3. Thank’s for emailing me David ; Living in California is a bummer ; Unfortunately I was born here in my opinion knowing what I know about California eventually Senator Dianne Feinstein will try too run this same type of legislation in Washington DC ; In my opinion The Oath keepers need too really target California most of our gun problem’s in our Republic are coming from California my gun right’s have been stripped away systematically for years I have tried too fight back donating money too the NRA doing e-mails for Gun Owners of America weekly , listing too the mind set of the average Californian they are highly indoctrinated and a lot of them are mindless , if I was Stewart I would put my focus on the source of the problem until you can gain some kind of influence in California ; This war on our Second Amendment right’s real only become worse . That plan that Stewart has about going on to college campuses and educating the students is the best plan that he has come up with in my opinion and The Oath Keepers should start in California first and another thing your not going to solve the gun problem until you solve the California problem I know deep down in my heart that this is the only way that we will ever get to the source of the problem and stop this kangaroo nonsense hopefully for ever ; Declare war on California and I know there are a lot of Trojan Horse’s here just waiting to join in !!!

  4. Thank’s for emailing me David ; Declare war on California ; There’s a lot of Trojan Horse’s here waiting to join end !!! Stewart’s idea too educate the students on are college campuses is a great idea but he’s got to start here in California first or this Gun Control problem will never be solved . There is in old saying here ( What ever start’s here in California eventually will end up all across the nation ) . Do The Oath Keepers notice anything familiar about this continuum ; I know you do ; Focus your resources where the true enemies’s of our Republic reside , being born here I’m a witness to the silliness’ of this state and I’ve tried my best too fight back for 45 year’s to know avail, and I feel like that classic lone wolf ; Help !

    1. You are not alone. I was born in CA 65 years ago, and will die here (my family’s ranch, owned since 1854, won’t fit in a U-Haul).
      This Newsom initiative (or the parallel de Leon ammunition registry) will go national if not stopped here. Same sex marriage and gender-neutral bathrooms started here, and so will this.

  5. “The voters forgave him, though; they reelected him with 72% of the vote.” This article is extremely important because while I hear much of the “alternative media” claiming that the people are waking up, I see the opposite.
    We go to the polls and re-elect the incumbents at a staggering rate of over 80%. Perhaps that will change in this election, but I’m not hopeful. The majority of the populace will always vote for false hope, and the looting of the state coffers to feed their belly’s.
    It seems as if few have learned a lesson over the past 100 years. Even in the pro-2nd community they cling to the delusional notion that the republicans will stand up and fight.
    If I’m not mistaken, there is a saying as California goes, so goes the nation. Californians, have allowed their state to be sacked by corrupt politicians, and droves of illegal immigrants. I suppose it’s no stretch to think that they will also go for a complete disarmament when their masters declare it. How far behind are the rest of us?

    1. “We go to the polls and re-elect the incumbents at a staggering rate of over 80%.”

      Nick it is Election Fraud (caps deliberate). It has been ongoing heavily in all 50 states for a few decades now, though the last 20 Years has been the worst.

      Until we take back our elections, and they are ours, we will have big time problems dumping the domestic enemies and the traitors. Exit polls do not match at so many, if not all, where they were taken that those that are serving within our state governments are trying to forbid exit polls.

      But we cannot take back our “voice” until we have people educated about the US Constitution their state Constitution. Then they will understand that BOTH those that serve within our state governments and within the general (federal) are REQUIRED to use the Militia to -from the US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 summarized by me:

      — Enforce the US Constitution (supreme LAW of this land) and each state’s Constitution (highest LAW of the state except in the rare instances of conflict with the supreme law),
      — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
      — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
      — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

      (Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.“)

      That is a requirement, though the states may also use them for other things if needed. So if those that serve within our governments are REQUIRED to use the militia – thus forbidding the use of any other agencies, etc for those things listed – why are they not doing so? Because the Militia MUST be trained as the congress requires the military to be trained(veterans), AND knowledgeable about the US Constitution and their own state Constitution in order to be “well regulated” as constitutionally required so they have the excuse that there are not enough trained and knowledgeable available Militia to do those duties.

      But consider this, ALL able-bodied Americans are required to be trained and to be knowledgeable about their Constitutions so that they can serve, or pay a fee for not serving. Who is required to be on the roles for training and education for the militia? From George Washington, ex general and ex US President…

      George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.”
      (“Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”)

      Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.“

      John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

      For consideration of all interested. When reading this it is important to realize that ONLY the House of Representatives and the Senate can create any type of legislation that is binding on the American people. Yet we have agencies, etc creating legislation, using that unlawful legislation against the American people, and when they do not enforce it themselves (treason and *terrorism) they then USE law enforcement who are not aware of our legitimate government and to what (it is to no person or position) they are Oathbound – making them commit treason and *terrorism unknowingly.

      St John Tucker: “The congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate, or interfere with the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it belongs not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people;…”

      *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

      If one thinks that just ordering the LE’s, military to do things against the American people do things against the American people – such as disarm and then murder them; look at Boston, etc recently; and from our history…

      The largest American mass shooting in our history was committed at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota on December 29,1890. There 297 Sioux Indians were murdered by federal agents, those serving within the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for the Sioux’s own safety and protection”.

      AFTER the majority of those Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. THEN the federal agents and the Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out all Sioux there. It is important to consider that 200 of those murdered 297 victims were women and children. Though Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts and subsequent murder in United States history those that serve within our governments are still up to the same old tricks, even using the same language of ““for the Sioux’s … i mean … your own, and your families safety and protection. That ended in the senseless murder of 297 people, what makes you think that it won’t happen again? Remember that it was the Europeans, etc that came here and would have those “peaceful” meetings with the tribes they considered as less then human and, using germ warfare against them, as “peace” offerings gave them blankets that had Chicken Pox, etc on them to which the natives has no resistance.

      Today, the average American is considered by them to be “less then human”, think of what Kissinger said of our American troops.

      None of this stuff they do today is new to those who serve within our governments, which is why the people, the Militia must be revived.

      God Bless, and all stay safe!

      If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

      Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  6. It seems probable that too many Californians have not seen the list of countries whose populations were disarmed, showing how many million people (or tens of millions of people) were killed in each country shortly after they were disarmed.

    1. …if they did see it, they would deny it, disregard it, never believe it has any bearing on today, and so forth. The lefty socialist type are incapable of original thought, which means they only parrot what the MSM and puppet masters dictate. For every one that does figure it out, thousands fall in line as sheeple and useful idiots. All gun ownership will become illegal under this treasonous government.

      It will be as our civil war…only us against them, not north against south.

      I hate to be repetitious, but please note that the impostor in the white house has over 50% approval rating. No amount of truth is reaching the left who have dug in their heels to abolish the constitution and vilify those who stand for the constitution and bill of rights.

    2. There is a reason that many Californians want to split up the state. It is because the California government, with a traitor named Brown “leading” it, does not represent the majority of the state. That is correct, the majority are not for socialism (minus a lot of ILLEGALS shipped to the different states – they are still illegal as Obama has no delegated authority to create or to change our laws, nor is he really the US President – like it or not, believe it or not), work hard for the little they get, and are like the rest of the nation.

      A big problem they have is quite a few of those real American families came to California by wagon train, walking, horseback, etc and settled, tamed the land, made their ranches and farms, etc long ago. It is the “imported” newer Californians that followed the movie industry, was looking for easy living, etc that are the problem we see today. Easily lead, few of the thoughts they have of their own creation, etc.

      Not all of the people in California, or in any of the other states here in the USA, are a part of the “dumbed down” crowd; believing the propaganda, even today quite a few Americans do NOT have smartphones, etc – even in California – though the media, the language today make it seem as it is done and given that everyone has them.

      It is true that it is in California that the PTB started early, really early, to implement and create a place where a government controlled state exists. So ask yourself why? What was so special about the state of California that they started their destruction of America there, that they portrayed early on that life was easy there, etc so that people who were looking for “easy” moved there? Could it be because California could grow the worlds food? Is that why they not only destroyed some of the richest and most diversified farmland in the USA – that one state could and at one time did, grow the food that fed the USA and some of the rest of the world – but also started early on to destroy the water supply there? That had to be stopped, having water, the capability to feed the world. So the water was/is being destroyed, removed, wiped out – that’s why the piping of water to the southern part of the state, etc. The farm and ranch lands poisoned or covered in housing.

      Think that there is not Climate modification? Research the military uses of it, ask those that serve and know if they are READY to start standing up for their nation and their Oaths. No where was those that serve delegated the authority to shut up the people who know what crimes against America is being committed by the military or those that serve within government. (Look, even I am speaking as if the military is a completely different organization – it is NOT, it IS part of the government.)

      Remember when the snow wiped out the cattle, etc in the northern states years back? Does anyone remember what the actual temperature readings were at that time? 34 Degrees. That is right, 32 is freezing. Was anyone there that tested that snow? Did it melt correctly like real snow? (I can tell you personally that it did NOT, not over a flame, not in a pot on the stove.) Hey, “natural disaster” wiped out a part of the food chain. What about those treasonous people who work for the FDA, etc agencies, ever notice that the destructive and deadly GMO is ignored by them but the healthy and natural is forced destroyed. Think about it.

      We are getting hit on all sides, and a lot of people who work for those agencies and others like them are “just doing their jobs”, “just following orders” destroying our nation for a paycheck. Want to know the price of treason today? It is different in amount, but it usually adds up to a paycheck, and keeping oneself ignorant.

      Anyone wonder why our measurements, etc are being changed to be the same as the rest of the world? All of those changes bring us further into the NWO, being ruled, instead of independent. Consider that WE led the way, and now they are telling us to change, that is just another form of controlling us. You say the reasons WE must change are justified with great reasons. So is control of our weapons, having the unlawful and illegal DHS, the treasonous TSA, treasonous CIA, and yes, the treasonous FBI. NONE who has worked in any of those agencies, or others, kept their Oath. Not that lived or are not imprisoned.

      Start thinking of all the changes being wrought here FROM the American way of doing things to the world view. They started small, decades ago, and look how we let it grow and consume, destroy our nation.

      All, we must have OUR OWN honest elections, replacing every single position. No, it won’t be easy, but it is still OUR government. We must get the militias going as is constitutionally required. We MUST replace those that serve within our government, particularly those that “protect” those serve. Kennedy was murdered because they were traitors. If Ron Paul had not been stopped at the 11nth hour by the Republican parties treason, IF we did not immediately remove and replace those who would have been assigned to “protect’ him, he too would have been murdered.

      When we change those who serve, when we elect our own real senate, congress, president, etc; when we replace every single judge that is now serving that did not keep their Oath, and at this time I know of two that have; the MOST important step is to have trained and ready those who will be protecting the representatives the people choose – not those already placed into positions by others, and not those “protective” organizations that are in existence already. None of them can be trusted no matter how much you like some of the people serving in them – because the proof is, as they used to say, in the pudding, NONE kept their Oaths or our government would not be full of domestic enemies and traitors as it is today

      God Bless and Stay Safe All,

      If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

      Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

      1. Very well stated Cal and I was particularly gratified that you brought out the point about the unelected people who work in these agencies and services, yet also fail to keep their oath. That they do it for a pay check means to me they are selling their souls and bringing condemnation upon themselves. They can cry all day about ‘just following orders’, but because they chose to do it, they have become enforcers for the elite globalists and are no better than the traitors they serve. There is never any excuse to commit crime, but by their actions they have been complicit in criminal activity for which they deserve the same sentence as the perpetrators. Oligarchs can never commit despotic acts without enforcers to carry out those acts in their stead. Violating and trashing the US Constitution is an illegal act and there should be no waiver given. I include all those liberal court justices as well because their re-writing of the laws according to their own political bias is just as criminal in my opinion.
        However, in my way of thinking, the root of all the problems we have in this country lies directly in the complete moral decay that has spread like a cancer over the last couple of decades. This always happens to any empire before if falls.

  7. Going forward…….in kalifornia……….if you see a police officer who has not quit and found another job…….can we assume they are “oath breakers” who either did not understand the oath they took to uphold and defend the constitution, or that they just lied……??????

    By being in uniform you make the statement that you will (if only selectively) uphold illegal, unconstitutional second amendment and fifth amendment violations. You set yourself out as an enforcer for an unconstitutional government enforcing totalitarian laws antithetical to the supreme law of the land which you took an oath to protect.

    I am waiting to see the mass resignations this week.

    Should I hold my breath? Are there “oath keepers” in kalifornia? Or going forward should we assume there are NONE?
