Immigrant doctor launches recall petition against California Gov. Newsom

Dana Mathewson

Not sure how much chance he has, but such efforts have paid off in the past. Remember when Gov. Gray Davis was ousted in 2003?

A San Diego doctor who emigrated from South America is pushing to oust California Gov. Gavin Newsom, arguing the state's left-wing leadership has allowed cities to become "overrun by homelessness."

"I came here legally at age 11. Having grown up in extreme poverty and being homeless to now being one of San Diego's most prominent physicians, that's the American Dream, that's the California dream. And that's what Gov. Newsom and left-wingers in the legislature are progressively destroying," James Veltmeyer said on "Fox & Friends" Monday.

Homelessness is a growing problem in California. For example, the homeless population in San Francisco has grown to more than 17,000, a 30 percent jump from last year, according to a city database.

Veltmeyer, who ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018,and Republican Erin Cruz have both launched recall petitions, seeking 1.5 million signatures to force a special election. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, there have been 51 recall attempts since 1911, with the only successful recall occurring in 2003 when Gray Davis was ousted from the governor's office.

Newsom dismissed the recall efforts, blaming them ona "handful of partisan activists supporting President Trump and his dangerous agenda to divide America. He accused Veltmeyer and Cruz of demonizing Californians and attacking the state's values.

Veltmeyer denied the accusation, arguing Newsom's policies are not helping Californians.

"What is he doing for us?" he asked, adding that a major reason for the recall is that American veterans are living on the streets in California, unable to receive quality health care, while Newsom supports free health care for illegal immigrants.

That last paragraph there ought to reach out and grab you! The rest of the article is here: and it's worth your time to read it.

Sadly, it'll probably never happen. But it should.

1 California has not yet figured out that the more benefits you provide for homeless people the more homeless people you will attract. They come here to get the free stuff. Duh. That comes under the heading of "rocket science" to these morons. The other problem they haven't figured out is that the cause of homelessness is not lacking a home. It's joblessness, mental illness, addiction or some combination of those factors. If you take a mentally ill jobless addict and put him in a free house, you have a mentally ill jobless person who is living in a house until he can't keep it up and returns to being a mentally ill jobless addicted homeless person. Again, duh.

2 Well, Bill, California -- or rather, the leftists that run, and live in, most of California (there are some sensible people in California; how do you suppose Rep. Devin Nunes got elected?) -- don't really want to solve problems. They just want to look like they're solving problems, so they can feel good about themselves. Virtue signaling, in other words. They don't really give a damn about the homeless people as long as those HP don't live in their neighborhoods.

3 California has some of the strictest eviction laws in America. It is next to impossible to toss someone out. So you end up with people who have been tossed out of their housing in Arizona, or Nevada, or elsewhere going to CA, knowing that they can be as crazy and drug-addled as they please and nobody can touch them.

If you subsidize a thing it will grow.
