BREAKING UPDATE: Effort To Recall Far-Left CA Governor Newsom Reaches 870,000 Signatures Unaffordable housing. Record homelessness. Rising crime. Failing schools. Independent contractors thrown out of work. Exploding pension debt. And now, a locked-down population while the prisons are emptied. CA Governor Gavin Newsom must go. Less than two years into office, California Gov. Gavin Newsom is being forced to defend his job. Orrin Heatlie, an organizer of the RecallGavin2020.com recall petition, says the campaign has now reached 870,000 signatures. The recall campaign must gather 1.5 million signatures by mid-March to force an election, and it will need a surplus of signatures because some are likely to be disqualified during the certification process. “He has done this to himself,” Heatlie said. “We wouldn’t have been as successful as we’ve been if it weren’t for Gavin Newsom.” Dan Newman, a spokesman for the governor, said Californians will have to decide whether they want a “distraction and circus” to pull attention away from the state’s problems. He said a special election could cost taxpayers upward of $100 million as the state works to distribute COVID-19 vaccinations, reopen schools and kick-start the economy. “This is a ragtag crew of pro-Trump, anti-vaccine extremists, along with some ambitious Republican politicians who would like to be governor,” Newman said. “I don’t think it’s something anyone wants. I’d be surprised if Californians wanted to spend the extra money and have another election the following year.” FALSE! This is something at 870,000 Californians want! The final straw for recall proponents was photos that surfaced showing Newsom dining at the exclusive French Laundry restaurant in California’s wine country, where the per-person tasting menu starts at $350.

Jobless Claims Top 800,000 for Third Straight Week New weekly jobless claims fell by 89,000 to 803,000 in the week that ended December 19, the Department of Labor said Wednesday. The prior week’s initial claims number was revised up to 892,000 from the initial estimate of 885,000. Economists had forecast a decline in claims to 875,000, according to Econoday. Jobless claims can be volatile week to week so many economists prefer to look at the four-week average. This rose to 818,250, an increase of 4,000 from the previous week’s upwardly revised level. Jobless claims—which are a proxy for layoffs—remain at extremely high levels. Prior to the pandemic, the highest level of claims was 695,000 hit in October of 1982. In March of 2009, at the depths of the financial crisis recession, jobless claims peaked at 665,000.

After a new strain of COVID-19 was identified in England, the nation is closed off from the rest of Europe and thousands of truckers are stranded in southern England. There are nearly 3,000 trucks waiting in the county of Kent, unable to return to France as the two nations engage in talks about the situation. Law enforcement near Dover, an English port, have recommended some truckers get tested for the virus locally, in case the countries soon reach a deal that would allow the truckers to leave. The stalemate threatens to leave England with a shortage of basic goods at the height of the Christmas holiday season. France is one of 40 nations that have recently prohibited travel from the United Kingdom. A truck driver named Adrian, who is from Romania, told CNN that many drivers do not have access to bathrooms. "A lot of people are making their holidays here in the cars," he said " ... they cannot go home. It's not good. We are lucky because we are here in Dover, but a lot of people are stuck on the roads. They can't go to the toilet or have a shower." --With Europe's borders closed to Britain, thousands of trucks that cannot enter France are backlogged in UK | Disrn --https://disrn.com/news/with-europes-borders-closed-to-britain-thousands-of-trucks-that-cannot-enter-france-are-backlogged-in-uk/ -RETRIEVED-Fri Dec 25 2020 07:05:26 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

Richmond Heights police in Ohio sought to lift the spirits of residents during the coronavirus pandemic Sunday with a "rolling Christmas carol." Piloting a police SUV decked out in Christmas decorations, with the Grinch locked up in back to show he meant serious holiday cheer, Richmond Heights Auxiliary Police Capt. Mark Hoageson drove around his city's streets, jingling all the way. His wife Mary Prince joined him, dressed as an elf, and blasted Christmas music through the vehicle's public address system, Cleveland.com reports. Civilians of all ages greeted the SUV with glad hearts. "We thought we were rock stars," said Hoageson, a 31-year veteran of the force. "We'd go down a street and people would come outside to wave or dance to the music. Some people followed us and wanted pictures with us." More from Cleveland.com: The idea for A Rolling Christmas Carol was conceived just three days earlier when RHPD Chief Thomas Wetzel asked Hoageson if he would take to the streets to helm the cheery cherry top. Hoageson drove one of two cars on Halloween that also went down streets to greet residents. The idea was to repeat the success of Halloween, but with just one police vehicle in order to reduce contact with residents as COVID cases continue to rise during this unusual holiday season. The plan was quickly posted on the RHPD Facebook page. As the car proceeded through different neighborhoods, about 15 songs were rotated. "We tried to make the music appropriate to where we were," Hoageson said. "When we went past the assisted living facilities, we'd maybe be playing Bing Crosby singing 'White Christmas,' and in other neighborhoods, things a little more upbeat." Wetzel thanked Hoageson and Prince for their efforts in making a success of A Rolling Christmas Carol. "It definitely was a unique approach at community outreach," Wetzel said of the event, "but we like to think outside the box here. Besides that, our agency is like community policing on steroids, and this was a neat way to spread some holiday cheer, particularly during this COVID crisis, which is still a daily threat. "Mark and his wife drove together and worked their way from the south side of the city, to the north. Capt. Hoageson is a techie kind of guy and rigged the sound system to play over the cruiser PA system. And it was loud and strong. When we were driving through our apartments on the north end, you could see people looking out their windows and checking things out." According to a Facebook post from the Richmond Heights Police Department, Hoageson and his wife purchased all the decorations for the SUV themselves and volunteered their own time to take a tour around the city, bringing a little bit of Christmas to everyone who lives there. Richmond Heights Mayor David Roche and his wife Aire joined the SUV, along with another police car and Police Chief Thomas Wetzel in his own car in what became a small four-hour Christmas parade.
