Is Gavin Newsom Totally Corrupt or Just Eternally Incompetent?

There is no longer any question as to whether the Supreme Leader, the Regressive Guv Newsom, being a one man band.  Like the Leader of a Fascist nation, so far he has issued 38 Executive Orders and changed 172 State laws—without notice, public hearing or approval from the Legislature.  Like fascist leaders he is either totally corrupt or eternally incompetent.

He has a billion contract to a firm owned by the Chinese Communist Party.  They sent unapproved N95 masks—forcing them to refund $247 million—so far.  Then you have two political operative, GOP’ers, getting a $457 million contract to provide masks, two days after they opened a bank account.  That had to be rescinded.  Now for the big score of the day for the Democrats.  A $800 million mas contract to a political lobbying firm—the Sacramento office (not mentioned in the article) is run by Fabian Nunez—the former Democrat Speaker of the Assembly.  He was able to get Guv Schwarzenegger to commute the sentence of his son—for the crime of murder.  Powerful?  You bet.  In this case, $800 million worth.

“Under one of its three contracts with California, Bear Mountain was supposed to deliver 400 million three-ply surgical masks and 200 million face shields, according to purchase order records the state provided to The Times.

Those records identify the company’s local contact as Paul Bauer, a Sacramento lobbyist who works for the government relations firm Mercury Public Affairs.

“I was approached by the former attorney general of Alabama and agreed to be his local contact in Sacramento,” Bauer said in a text message. “Bear Mountain is not a client of Mercury.”

Bauer declined to provide details about his financial arrangement with Bear Mountain or why his Mercury email address is listed on the state purchase records.”

Corruption, Incompetent, Supreme Leader Gavin Newsom is way over his head.  Either the Legislature take back the reins of government—or the Feds should stop giving California money until those responsible or either out of office or indicted.  What do you think?


A politically connected firm gets an $800-million mask contract with California. Then it falls apart

Troy King in 2010 when he was Alabama attorney general. California has canceled a nearly $800-million purchase order for masks with King’s firm, Bear Mountain Development Co., after it failed to deliver supplies on time, state officials said.

By Adam Elmahrek,,Melody Gutierrez, L.A. Times,  5/9/20  

A nearly $800-million deal California struck with a politically connected vendor of medical masks has collapsed after state officials said the company failed to deliver most of the supply, renewing questions over how the state is vetting vendors during the coronavirus crisis.

The scale of the contract with Bear Mountain Development Co. LLC came to light Friday when state officials, pressed by The Times, confirmed details of the deal, which is one of the largest made by California in its scramble for protective equipment. Former Alabama Atty. Gen. Troy King is listed on Bear Mountain’s formation record as president of the Montgomery, Ala., company.

The state has been notifying federal authorities whenever contractors fail to deliver promised supplies. Among those vendors is Bear Mountain Development, according to two sources familiar with the issue. The state has not publicly accused the firm of wrongdoing.

Under one of its three contracts with California, Bear Mountain was supposed to deliver 400 million three-ply surgical masks and 200 million face shields, according to purchase order records the state provided to The Times.

Those records identify the company’s local contact as Paul Bauer, a Sacramento lobbyist who works for the government relations firm Mercury Public Affairs.

“I was approached by the former attorney general of Alabama and agreed to be his local contact in Sacramento,” Bauer said in a text message. “Bear Mountain is not a client of Mercury.”

Bauer declined to provide details about his financial arrangement with Bear Mountain or why his Mercury email address is listed on the state purchase records.

State officials canceled the agreement May 2. By then, Bear Mountain was supposed to have delivered 60 million face shields and 120 million surgical masks, according to the records. By that point, the company had delivered only 489,000 face shields and fewer than 9.7 million surgical masks, said Monica Hassan, deputy director of the Department of General Services.

  1. ExCaliExpat says

    C) All of the above…

    The mere fact that he’s related to crazy-eyes Pelosi (or Auntie Nancy) is enough to warrant his removal from office.

    He’s also the Mayor of the failed city of San Franfreakshow, which confirms his absolute incompetence…

    He is presiding over institutional VOTER FRAUD, which is prima facie evidence that he should be removed from office and JAILED….

  2. American says

    He is definitely incompetent and stupid and corrupt. All qualifications for the Fascist democrapic party.

    The democraps with their corruption have driven California into a banana republic with the lowest educational standards, Feces in the streets of the large cities and criminals running amok and high taxes.

    This is the fascist democrapic mode of operation.

    GRUESOME needs to be put in jail…………………..

  3. Really??? says

    Now that the State has “Real ID” verification it should be demanded by all that only those with proven citizenship can vote.

    Now that the SCOUSA has stated his ruling ileagal can get money is “illegal” in itself. There is a problem.

    Oh wait the issue is he totally corrupt? Yep. He is a Radical Socialist. As the Castro Brothers, Venezuela, Putin, and the rest have proven there is no issue with corruption they on it all! Divine Right King and all that.

  4. Really??? says

    Opp’s own instead of on

  5. How about nullifying the Electoral College Votes from Kaliforniastan’s next presidential election because the State won’t clean up the voting register? There were TWO recall petitions that failed because the State Repubs wouldn’t get behind either of them

    Is Gavin Newsom Totally Corrupt or Just Eternally Incompetent?

    Gov. Nuisance is a very capable man, he can be corrupt and eternally incompetent. Queen Nan put him in every office to do her bidding or at least the bidding of her very wealthy neighbors.

  7. Otis Needleman says

    Grofaz Newsom is a legend in his own mind.

  8. Gov Nusance is the living example of what walking talking Malice with Intent looks like…anyone who would head to China to bail out a bankrupt solar panel company for a billion bucks worth of overpriced face mask has something else on the burner and he isn’t talking….I am watching the DNC, their actions and criminal thinking…they want this country so far in debt it will be impossible for us to dig out, in the meantime the Chinese can sponsor all this debt since they are cash rich from profiteering…then buy, steal and own anything they want in the US and control any part of the government they want to at anytime…..the DIMMs are going to help them….

  9. Now thats a very good question.

  10. Dee Gill says

    Well obviously most of you never got past 3rd grade. AND most of you are registered Republicans. Not to say Newsom is good, right, or even ok……can’t you find something more beneficial to the public to say or do? Maybe you should all volunteer at a youth shelter or a dining hall or something to get you back into the real world and be helpful to your communities…….

  11. This corrupt governor has to go! #RecallNewsome

  12. Newsom is THE WORST!!!
    Why don’t more great citizens of California see this?
    He has done a horrible job in every one of his prior political positions.
    He is NOT working to represent the majority of citizens of California.
    He & Nancy & the Democrats have a seriously DANGEROUS hidden agenda.
    He will destroy California.
    Sadly, I am no longer proud to be a Californian.
    Gavin Newsom does NOT care about you and will not protect the Californian the you love!
    His handling of the SIP due to covid-19 is completely wrong and not based on “science” as he claims.
    He wants only to CONTROL and be the Dictator that he believes he is.
    He has gone way beyond the realm of acceptance for what is right. He is TOTALLY WRONG for California.
    He is a very, very misguided person who is NOT qualified to lead our State.
    He needs to GO!
    That’s the kindest thing I can say about him.

    What can you do and what will you do to help “ease” him out of office?
    What can we all do to survive his reign of terror?
    We need our State, Our Economy, Our Businesses and Our Sanity Back!

    Gavin, You Suck!
