California Gov. Gavin Newsom easily survives the effort to recall him from office. Are there lessons for Republicans ahead of the 2022 midterms here? Also, the revelations in a forthcoming book that Gen. Mark Milley conducted his own foreign policy and violated the chain of command under Donald Trump.

    I have to disagree with the analysis on Larry Elder here. In fact it sounds like nobody here listened to Larry Elder. It is really a shame that the right of center intelligentsia still wants a Jeb bush as their candidate….Larry Elder ran on everything right of center should care about….yet from the center right intelligentsia all we hear is “Trump” 

    Very weak/lazy analysis here…I expect much better from each of you.

    But it was easy for Democrats to make Elder into another Trump. Pity, it looked as though he had a shot for a while there and it would have been so good for California. But they like their ghettos, power outages and drug raddled homeless people, I guess.

    Anyone who can believe Larry Elder is “the black face of white supremacy” deserves Gov Newsome, if not worse.
