Wanted: Just 1 conservative to run for CA guv

 Los Angeles Times, August 1, 2017: “In the race to be California’s next governor, Newsom raises more money than Villaraigosa, Chiang and Eastin combined”

Pro-“LGBT”/assisted-suicide Republican David Hadley is out. So is the legendary Rosey Grier, a conservative Christian. That leaves Huntington Beach assemblyman Travis Allen and San Diego financial whiz John Cox as the only two Republicans in the 2018 California governor’s race. And I strongly believe one of them needs to step down.

While Travis Allen has a mostly conservative record in Sacramento (video), John Cox’s rhetoric and positions are also mostly conservative (video). But if one of them doesn’t drop out of the governor’s contest, there may be no conservative at all on the November 2018 general election ballot.

Here’s why. There are four big-name liberal Democrats running — former Assembly Speaker and L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, former San Francisco mayor and current Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, former state Controller and current state Treasurer John Chiang, and former assemblywoman and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin.

Of these four Democrats, at least three of them will receive mountains of money from public and private unions, which they’ll use to rally Democrat voters to turn out for them. So you can expect the large majority of California voters in the June 2018 primary to vote for Democrats. The reality is, with statewide initiatives no longer permitted on the June ballot, Republican voters will lack issues to energize them, and might only comprise 30% of the electorate 10 short months from now.

Therefore, it is the wisest and safest course for California conservatives for them to demand there be only 1 viable Republican in the governor’s race. Because if there’s only one Republican, you can be virtually assured the November 2018 general election will pit a mostly conservative fighter against a liberal statewide politician. It’s simple math.



(Only 1 Republican runs and advances to the general election by winning the largest percentage of voters in the June 2018 primary election)

30% 1 mostly conservative Republican
25% Villaraigosa (Democrat)
– – – – – (“Top Two” cutoff of June 2018 primary election results)
20% Newsom (Democrat)
15% Chiang (Democrat)
10% Eastin (Democrat)

(Here, 2 Republicans run for governor, but in June 2018 neither are in the “top two” that advance to the November runoff election)

25% Villaraigosa
23% Newsom
– – – – –
16% Republican backed by state party
14% Mostly conservative Republican running independently
13% Chiang
9% Eastin

(3 Republicans run in the primary election and none advance to the general election)

25% Villaraigosa
23% Newsom
– – – – –
15% Chiang
12% Republican backed by state party
10% Mostly conservative Republican running independently
8% Second mostly conservative Republican running independently
7% Eastin

“For it is written in the Book of Psalms: ‘Let his dwelling place be desolate, And let no one live in it’; and, ‘Let another take his office.’ Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.” And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

A California governor who loves God and people?

Rosey Grier knows how to get good things done, and has experience resisting evil. What does it matter that he’s 84, which may be the new 74?

Former NFL linebacker with the Los Angeles Rams, author, actor, public speaker and active Christian minister Rosey Grier says he’s going to run for California governor to succeed the termed-out Jerry Brown.

Grier is a Republican who, like Ronald Reagan, left the Democrat Party when it left him on moral issues.

As the L.A. Times reports:

Earlier this year, Grier endorsed Trump for president, saying he was impressed by Trump’s business experience and support for Israel.

“I felt that we needed a businessman in the White House,” Grier said.”Our country is turning away from Israel. And you don’t turn away from Israel. Those are God’s chosen people.”

The former football star doesn’t seem to be worried an electorate in a state that overwhelmingly chose Hillary Clinton might be turned off by his support for Trump.

“If I’m not successful, it won’t be because I haven’t tried,” Grier said.

Impressive. And I’m not discounting Grier because he’s 84. When Jerry Brown leaves office in January 2019, he’ll be 80 going on 81. California’s U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein is 83. Donald Trump will assume the presidency at age 70.

Concerned about feebleness? Remember former California Secretary of State Debra Bowen. Leaving statewide office at age 58, Bowen admitted she was an alcoholic while in the State Assembly, a drug addict in the State Senate, and that she was clinically depressed and largely absent from her duties in her second term as Secretary of State.

So if Bowen, a middle-aged liberal Democrat, could vote and otherwise act against God and family values in her feeble condition, I would be more than fine with an sharp-minded 84-year-old Christian conservative whose body isn’t what it used to be. All Grier needs to do is veto a boatload of bad bills. He could even veto bills from bed, as his namesake, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was wheelchair-bound and often bed-bound, did.

Do the math for the June 2018 California primary election. If it were just one reliable conservative facing off with dyed-in-the-wool, anti-family liberals such as Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and state Treasurer John Chiang, the conservative, with only 30-35% could be one of the top two vote-getters who goes on to the general election.

The next governor’s race is a historic opportunity to put forth a clear difference between one who relies on government and one who relies on people to do what’s right.

Multiple conservative candidates kill each other’s chances, as California’s 2016 U.S. Senate primary election proved. Several Republicans in that race resulted in two liberal Democrats going into the general election. Why not let liberals split their votes this time?

And what kind of Republican you would accept? Do you want Rosey Grier’s moral values or would you take a homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda “Republican” like San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer or even Peter Thiel, an openly homosexual “Republican”? Who do you trust to veto bills punishing Californians who oppose sexual perversity?

Ultimately, your religious freedom is protected only by government. I, for one, would feel much safer with a governor who I could depend on to veto any and all tyrannical bills that punish our God-given rights.

Contact Rosey Grier or Kevin Faulconer to encourage/discourage them to run

This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.

Newsom:’God forbid’ Prop. 8 be upheld

Friday, June 14, 2013, 2:31 pm | Randy Thomasson

In the biblical context, blasphemy is an attitude of disrespect
that finds expression in an act directed against the character of God
Holman Bible Dictionary (1991)

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat and the former mayor of San Francisco, is an immoral and blasphemous man.

The latest is — in his support of unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and tyrannical homosexual “marriages,” and his desire that the U.S. Supreme Court will this month strike down California’s Proposition 8 reserving marriage licenses for only “a man and a woman” — Newsom has told the PBS NewsHour “God forbid they do the wrong thing” by upholding Prop. 8.

“God forbid”? Mr. Newsom, haven’t you heard that Creator God is clearly against homosexuality and against any marriage not between a man and a woman? From Genesis to Revelation, homosexuality is called a sin by the King of the Universe.

No person who believes in the Bible should put up with Newsom’s blasphemy. Replacing God’s word with his self-styled Catholicism, Newsom holds that Holy God actually likes homosexuality. Isn’t it time to put his claims to the test?

What the Bible says against homosexuality | Why homosexuality is not a “civil right”

But Newsom has put himself on the throne for years. In 2004, when the then-San Francisco mayor printed up homosexual “marriage” licenses, he was on Larry King Live opposite Pastor John MacArthur, who challenged Newsom, “Do you believe the Bible is the word of God?” Admitting “I guess I do,” Newsom then blasted the word of God as “old constructs” that have “held back society,” despite acknowledging that his homosexual agenda is “inconsistent…with your faith.” Transcript | Video

NEWSOM: The point is some of these arguments, they’re reminiscent. With respect to the pastor, I just, you know, I’m a practicing Catholic. I got married in the church two plus years. I don’t see what we’re doing in terms of advancing the bond of love and monogamy and extending that to family, families of same-sex in any way, shape or form takes away anything from the church or the sanctity of the union that my wife and I have.

MACARTHUR: I would just like to ask the mayor as a practicing Catholic, do you believe the Bible is the word of God?

NEWSOM: Pastor, I’m not going to get into a theological debate with you.

MACARTHUR: That’s not a theological debate. That’s just a straight question, do you believe the Bible is the authoritative word of God?

NEWSOM: With respect, I guess I do. Now the response.

MACARTHUR: Then the Bible says when God created man, he said one man, one woman, cleave together, for life. That’s a family. Jesus in the New Testament reaffirms that, all of the writers of the Old and New Testament affirm it. Adultery, bestiality, homosexuality was punishable by death according to the Old Testament law because it was so serious in those early years because it literally shattered the hope of civilization. The New Testament us, of course, grace, those sins, our sins, they are forgivable. Jesus died to redeem us from those sins. We’re all sinners.

KING: What does the state have to do with it?

MACARTHUR: But the point at this juncture is he’s representing the state, he’s coming back and saying I’m a Catholic, and I’m a Catholic and somehow this fits into my Catholicism and I’m saying what’s your authority then?

NEWSOM: I guess the bottom line is we’re living and advancing together across all kinds of differences, pastor. It is an extraordinary, miraculous thing to come out here in San Francisco and I think the world looks to us to see that it’s possible to live together and advance together across our differences, and I’m proud to represent a city that has diverse points of view, open points of view, that doesn’t believe in discrimination and has evolved from the old constructs that I think have frankly held back society and many that are inconsistent, yes, with your faith and I respect the difference of opinion.

“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.  Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”
Jesus Christ in Matthew 12:31-32 NKJV
