Can Black Anti-Crime Elder defeat AOC Clone Newsom as Anti-Crime Black Adams defeated Pro-Crime AOC Candidates in New York?

Most Californians aren’t aware of the fact that a former police officer and Republican who is Black, Eric Adam, defeated  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) backed candidates in New York City. The New York Post reported “Adams’ anti-crime message resonated with broad spectrum of Dems in NYC”:

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams secured a solid first-place lead in the Democratic primary for mayor because his vow to bolster public safety resonated with a broad cross-section of voters in working- and middle-class neighborhoods throughout the city, Post interviews reveal…

…  Adams received 2,652 votes in the 27th AD, followed by Andrew Yang with 2,395 votes, Kathryn Garcia with 1,510 votes and [AOC backed] Maya Wiley with 1,208 votes. Adams and Yang presented the strongest get-touch on crime messages on the campaign trail.

Indeed, voters said they gave Adams the nod because of concerns over rising crime and a decline in quality of life.

“Normally, I’m not a law-and-order type, but there comes a time when you have to put your foot down,” said Kew Gardens resident Anthony Franzone, 67, who voted Tuesday at PS 99/The Kew Gardens School.

He referenced the shooting murder of a young man at a notorious local hotel early New Year’s morning, which rattled residents who populate suburban-style single-family homes and co-op apartments near Queens’ civic hub — Borough Hall and the state courthouse.

“We need some law and order in the city,” Franzone said…

…  Assemblyman Daniel Rosenthal, who represents the 27th AD and backed Yang, said he was not surprised by Adams’ strong showing on his turf.

“The No. 1 issue I heard from constituents who voted was public safety and quality of life. Eric ran a good race,” Rosenthal said. [https://nypost.com/2021/06/27/adams-anti-crime-message-resonated-with-broad-spectrum-of-dems/]

Fox News said “AOC influence in question after Eric Adams defeats her picks for NYC mayor”:

“Ocasio-Cortez endorsed progressive candidate Maya Wiley and ranked Scott Stringer as her second choice. Neither candidate even advanced to the final round, where Adams faced off against Kathryn Garcia in a close contest.” [https://www.foxnews.com/politics/aoc-influence-in-question-eric-adams-nyc-mayoral-race]

Fox Business reported that pro-crime Ocasio-Cortez “wants to spend $2B on protecting herself while dismissing crime surge.” [https://youtu.be/biB-SyWG9zU]

Is Gavin Newsom a clone of pro-crime AOC?

It appears that Newsom is pro-crime like Ocasio-Cortez according to Cal Matters:

Early on in his term, Newsom incensed the state’s tough-on-crime voters by halting executions statewide — a decision that got a specific call-out in the recall petition

… Meanwhile, homicides in California shot up in 2020, though they still remain low by historical standards. Whether that increase is a pandemic-era anomaly or a sign of things to come, it’s another political vulnerability for a governor who has been a stalwart liberal on crime. Recall proponents, who held a July 20 press event at the state Capitol with relatives of murder victims, certainly think so.

What he’s done:

  • End the death penalty (for now): Newsom made no secret of his opposition to capital punishment during his 2018 campaign. Sure enough, one of his first acts as governor was to place a statewide moratorium on executions. It’s not a permanent ban — there are still more than 700 people on death row and a future governor can undo the move with the stroke of a pen. Recall supporters are counting on it.
  • Put new limits on police use of force: One of 2019’s fiercest legislative battles was over a bill to make it more difficult for police to legally justify killing civilians. After helping to broker a compromise between criminal justice reform advocates and police unions, Newsom signed the bill into law calling on further action to “make this moment meaningful.” A CalMatters analysis foundthat the law hasn’t yet had the transformative impact hoped for by supporters. 
  • Move forward with two prison closures: Newsom has been flirting with the idea of closing a state prison since his inauguration. Now, he’s pushing ahead with shuttering two: Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy by Sept. 30, and California Correctional Center in Susanville by next summer. It’s a response to a long-term decline in the state’s incarcerated population — helped along by the pandemic — but it also represents a sea change in a state once the epicenter of the “tough on crime” movement. [https://calmatters.org/explainers/newsom-recall-report-card/]

Moreover, The Epoch Times reported in an article that Newsom is “‘Criminalizing individual participation at a church, synagogue, mosque temple.” The article reported that CEO Harmeet Dhillon of the Center for American Liberty filed a lawsuit against Governor Gavin Newsom:

“‘Criminalizing individual participation at a church, synagogue, mosque temple or. other houses of worship clearly violates the First Amendment,’ Dhillon said. ‘If a Californian is able to go to Costco… then he or she must be allowed to practice their faith using the same precautions.'”
(Epoch Times, “Let’s Reclaim What is Fundamental,” April 16-22, 2020)

Can Newsom be defeated by a Black candidate like Adams who is anti-crime such as the Black Larry Elder? 

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported the governor race appears to be a toss up which offers a realistic chance for the anti-crime Black candidate to win over the pro-crime AOC clone Newsom:

A new UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Times found that among the dozens of candidates in the running to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom, conservative talk radio host Larry Elder leads the race, with many voters still undecided.

The poll found that 47% of likely California voters supported recalling the Democratic governor, compared with 50% who opposed removing Newsom from office — a difference just shy of the survey’s margin of error. [https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-07-27/larry-elder-leads-gop-in-newsom-recall-push-poll-shows ]

Also, the Wall Street Journal in the article “Could Larry Elder Really Replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom” said that attorney Elder who is a bestselling author and popular talk-radio host “leads all other candidates.” [https://www.wsj.com/articles/larry-elder-california-gov-gavin-newsom-recall-election-11627422240 ]

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

 –  LifeSiteNews, “Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers,” December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows “sexually active adulterous couples facing ‘complex circumstances’ to ‘access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'”

–  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

“The AAS statement… establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense.”

– On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

“Francis’ heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents.”

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.
