California Maneuvering to Make Bigger Impact on 2020 Election Than Any Election Before

Already the most populous state in the nation, California wants EVEN MORE influence on national politics.

As with any election cycle, the coming contest in 2020 will undoubtedly bring with it a plethora of discussion regarding the impact that our current electoral procedure has had on our nation.

The Electoral College has long been a sticking point for many, often on the losing side of an election, with opponents openly suggesting that this system should be eliminated for a simpler, popular vote system.

Again, it should be reiterated that it is quite easy to predict who will muster this argument in the wake of any election.  Just look to see who is licking their wounds.

Some states, however, are embracing the opportunities inherent within the system, and attempting to garner more power for themselves.  California is the latest.

Early voting in California’s primary will overlap with the traditional early nominating contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. That could force the sprawling field of Democrats to navigate those states as well as California’s notoriously complex landscape, where campaigning is done through paid political ads.

Strategists estimate it could cost at least $5 million for a candidate to compete in California, an amount that could be prohibitive for all but the best-funded contenders. Nascent campaigns are asking themselves if they should gamble on California.

“Everyone’s going to play in Iowa, everyone’s going to go to New Hampshire,” said Ben Tulchin, a San Francisco-based pollster who worked for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential bid. “But there are only 3-4 of the top-tier candidates who will compete in California.”

The nation’s biggest and second-most-diverse state has long complained about being effectively shut out of the presidential nominating process because its primary usually comes months after the initial four contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill moving the state’s primary up to the earliest date permissible.

California, much like New York State, is politically ruled by the liberal left due to their population density in coastal cities.

In both states, talks of secession or splitting of the territories has been considered in the past, but no legislation has yet to advance to a vote.

Powerful Moment As Hundreds of Jews Take to NYC Streets & Demand ‘OMAR MUST GO!’ (Watch)

WOW!

To say Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is a friend of the Jews is like admitting Alec Baldwin does a good Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live.” It’s just not true, no matter how anyone attempts to spin it. In New York City, hundreds of Jews took to the streets to protest the embattled Congresswoman. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: Hundreds of Jews gathered in Times Square in New York City on Monday evening to protest anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and chanted, “Omar must go!” “Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130940516810526720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130940516810526720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra ANOTHER: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130583678545944577?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130583678545944577&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. […] Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an…

Cruz Calls Out Carrey For Vile Abortion Painting, So Jim Reveals Another Painting Aimed At Ted

Jim Carrey must have A LOT of free time, these days.

After Republican Governor Kay Ivey signed Alabama’s strict new abortion bill into law, far-left radical Jim Carrey went berserk. He chooses, these days, to lash out via his paintings. Maybe he’s still upset he hasn’t had a hit film in years? Here’s the painting featuring Ivey being aborted from a tube sucking out her brain: I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama. https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1129796511611490304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129796511611490304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F18%2Fpeople-are-loving-jim-carreys-graphic-painting-of-alabama-gov-kay-ivey-being-aborted%2F Texas Senator Ted Cruz let Jim know how he felt about the painting… This is not OK. Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate. #LoveIsStrongerThanHate https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1130515866712518656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130515866712518656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Carrey fired back at Ted with a new painting: https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1130943200426745856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130943200426745856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Here’s what it says: “Some greasy Joe McCarthy wanna-be, who is shameless and will remain nameless, was lecturing me in the press about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms.” “I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven’t woken up yet,” Carrey continued. “I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream.” Jim must have a lot of free time these days. Back in November 2018, Carrey sent a tweet featuring one of his paintings showing support for then-Texas Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (D). It was meant to disparage Cruz. Carrey failed in his attempt and Cruz fired back with the kill shot.
