YEAR 2020

NEW YEAR definition: Since it bothers me to read something that contains an acronym without a definition I always feel compelled to provide that for “LAME” (Lew’s “Almost Music” Expression) when it is used in a new post which normally replaces prior blah, blah, blahs. Thus, if someone is viewing for the first time without benefit of reading a previous post with definition, they might reasonably say to themselves….”It really bothers me to read something that contains an acronym without a definition”.

Hopefully this will reduce at least that particular repetition for 2020 since regular viewers are already painfully aware of my penchant for repetition, you know? Over, and over and over again……. lol Ready for the new year?

& MBTYAY: (My best to you and yours), Lew

OK. Below line, new 2020 blah, blah, blahs start with date and/or time.


THURSDAY, February 27th, 2020/0004hrs

Uploading now. Found some other misplaced LAME files for this project, go figure. The file production is insane. Sometimes when real late (or early) and I’m tired I’ll name a file something I’m sure I’d remember. Yeah, right. Either that, or because I use external drives for storage, sometimes get drive letters confused and place files where I promptly forget. Whatever. Always something but since I already had them…might as well use them, yeah? May fall asleep waiting for the upload….if so, then in the morning. Video is pretty much the same as the one below, just some tweaking of the audio track with some passing thoughts.

Background story: While listening to a playback of one of the older versions on the new recorder – I used the damaged one (no playback) to record some additional material for FLEE OR FIGHT, aka, Sloth on Crack. Thus this “Sloth on Crack Gastrointestinal” version was born while just “farting around” with the old recorder – I guess one could say. Made me laugh when I heard the playback on the computer so thought I’d …….. your know……pass it on, ……. as one might say. 🙂

Full of burritos actually.

My best to you and yours, Lew

Thursday, 02202020/0002hrs

Have been busy preparing for Spring and cleaning up fire breaks for Summer. (And finding missing clothes and such.) Had this idea since first viewing that reprehensible conduct after the President’s State of the Union address. As usual, had no idea what to do for a LAME until I started. Really weird, the project just kind-of dictates what to do, unfortunately the ideas must utilize whatever I can muster for the production, which is obviously amateur at best, perhaps harmful to voluntary human auditory appreciation at worst. Yup, lots of sour notes. A true “hunter of notes”. Didn’t even attempt to correct a single bad note this time. Really sped up production (not a big surprise yeah? lol) This was a quickie (although sincerely expressing disgust) just to touch base with the equipment again and say HELLO! Feet are still quite painful. HEck, just 12hr weekends on my feet took until Wednesday-Thursday to feel better….ahhh, just in time for Saturday morning! lol Then that last “push” five days in a row! Sure can’t accomplish things like I could when younger, although I suspect I maybe working a bit smarter. I can only hope so. Yup appreciating the diminishing capabilities with age is a bummer. Expected though as everyday above ground is an accomplishment. MBTY&Y, Lew

Monday, February 17th, 2020/1032

Still alive and catching up on all the stuff I let slide for awhile. Never was the greatest “housekeeper” but even to my lax requirements, I recently crossed the line. It is all good though. Created a living environment puzzle to solve – incrementally, just as created. Recently found a large clothes hamper that was buried under some empty collapsed cardboard boxes for a few months. What a fantastic surprise – rather like Christmas as a kid….it was full of clean folded clothes! (Thought I had a lot more underwear and socks than were routinely laundered the last few months – lol) Then a pair of clean blue jeans under a blanket. Wow! Clothes shopping in my own house!

Anyway, nothing too serious, mostly clutter, and misplaced items but the outside work is another matter entirely. Almost all tree leaves and needles have dropped – along with a healthy dose of pine cones littered about – lovely for that quiet evening walk downhill when placing a boot on that little sucker ….. YIKES! Tailbone beware! (lol)

I hear the weeds growing at night as they mock and tease my feeble attempts of control during this decades long seasonal battle for landscape domination. As always, a temporary treaty will eventually be established recognizing the needs of both sides for the Spring and Summer. (Following a few windless day chemical agent attacks executed to gain a more advantageous position during the upcoming MVT (Miscellaneous Vegetation Treaty) negotiations.) lol

Yup, crucial time period with such great weather….take a long nap and the weeds seem to sprint to their maturity height!

Anyway, still here busy finding lost clothing (fortunately already laundered) slaughtering weeds, finding misplaced tools, etc. MBTY&Y, Lew



Finally! The Federal Government is going to be looking into and correcting the obvious organized criminal activity that has been in control of this State, our state, of California for many years.

Consider – a State Water Board that believes, and even publishes on the internet for public review, that the Merced River leaving Yosemite National Park and flowing through the Counties of Mariposa and Merced (and a tip of Stanislaus) and westward to the San Joaquin River in journey to the Delta…… ALSO RUNS THROUGH SUTTER COUNTY?




Absolutely unreal yeah? All because corruption is everywhere in government. When politically motivated, – “deep state activists” simply refuse to do their assigned government duties in favor of their “social justice” excuse for criminal conspiracies to violate the law. Folks, our state (and it’s information network) has been sabotaged by those who put private third party profit, power and control over that of the public service for which they were elected, appointed, employed, contracted….. whatever!

As Californian citizens we have been sold out.

We’re not alone. This “Democratus TermiteISIS” has been identified in specific areas across this nation which will also require corrective attention for any chance of a sustainable future with the freedoms granted in OUR US CONSTITUTION.

This is going to be quite interesting as the tentacles of corruption reach quite far and in ALL QUARTERS! Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Peace Freedom, Green, Left, Middle, Right……whatever! As long as human beings are involved there will be corruption and victimization of others for profit but it is HOW SUCH CRIME IS HANDLED that determines whether a particular approach makes COMMON SENSE OR NOT! GO GET ‘EM MR. BARR! later, Lew



The “new Prop 13” by XAVIER BECERRA…

(remember how he tricked voters with his “REPEAL THE GAS TAX” misleading proposition introduction – specifically ruled inappropriate by a California Superior Court Judge?) ….


Absolutely duplicitous conduct.

So essentially, voters must see-through this continuing deception by NEWSOM, BECERRA and company (Socialist-left DEMOCRATS) and


in order to keep the tax protections of our beloved OLD PROP 13! (Prior to that people were losing their homes to increased taxes for the classic “give aways” by Democrats.

Diabolical trickery again yeah? Such politicians need to be dumped ASAP (as soon as possible) if we are to reclaim this state for COMMON SENSE GOVERNANCE!

I now understand some of the confusion expressed by non-signers of the RECALL GAVIN NEWSOM PETITION due to my sign “HELP SAVE PROP 13”.

My argument was simply, if you want to save the OLD PROP 13, recall GAVIN NEWSOM as governor which would simultaneously help defeat this NEW PROP 13 (to raise billions in new taxes), again misrepresented by Xavier Becerra (our current Attorney General who fled Washington DC due to the missing computer server law enforcement was requesting – why was Becerra paying those Pakistani brothers and their wives so much more money than their regular salaries? And one was married to a Ukrainian? Hummm, maybe Becerra himself is directly involved with that entire misrepresentation of the Russian/Ukrainian election influence they tried to pin on President Trump? Sure would explain his misusing the power and authority as CA AG against ANYTHING TRUMP! (all those law suits brought with other Socialist-left AG from other states). Sure also appears to be a reoccurring MO (modus operandi – method of operation) in how Xavier Becerra misrepresents facts in order to garner support for his ANTI AMERICAN ACTIVITIES!)

That’s the kicker with such people: IF their proposals are so good for the average legal Californian – why must he lie and deceive in order to get support?


in order to SAVE THE OLD PROP 13!

Still strange….why on earth would someone refuse to recall Governor Newsom, yet simultaneously want to keep the old PROP 13 to keep taxes down? Save money to live!

NEWSOM and his cohorts want BILLIONS IN MORE TAX DOLLARS for “GIVE AWAYS” TO “BUY VOTES SO AS TO REMAIN IN POWER!” Hell, look what his Auntie Pelosi cooked up with Schumer, Schiff, Nadler, etc….against OUR PRESIDENT!!! How much money and damage done to our citizens as a result of that fraud, hoax, sham, scam……whatever.

More later…need to get these last 90 petition signatures processed.

Again, a BIG thank you to all who stopped by with an additional special thanks to those few apparent Newsom supporters who just politely nodded “no” to my presence at 59×132 while advocating the recall of Gavin Newsom. One man in particular caught my eye who repeatedly demonstrated the honor, integrity and class of the OLD DEMOCRAT PARTY (by just nodding “no” as he passed) a party which has unfortunately been hi-jacked by the NEWSOM/BECERRA radicals set on destroying our state in pursuit of their LEFTIST GOALS by any means necessary.

Thank you sir. I respect your polite expression of disagreement and I truly wish you and yours the very best.

Later, Lew

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9th, 2020/2130HRS

OK, here are the results for the last day for signing the recall petition at 59×132:










Thank you all grand total for the 59×132 shack: 710!

WOW! What an experience!

More later, My best to you and yours, Lew

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8th, 2020/2022hrs

OK…here are the fantastic results:









AND SPECIAL THANK YOU to Brian and Rosie from Denair for obtaining another 5 signatures on their own!

Folks, to be honest, I’m beat. There is so much more I want to report, and will, (photos too – have a new “bear buddy”….those of you passing through the intersection Friday and Saturday probably know what I’m referencing right? Anyway, more on that as well with photos) ….have I mentioned TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY TO SIGN THE NEWSOM RECALL PETITION AT THE 59×132 SHACK?

Well, it is…OH! Another SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of you spreading the word to friends and family (perhaps strangers? I don’t know. lol) Great job! Many commented they had heard it from…….???? Just one last request in preparation for the last possible day to sign the NEWSOM RECALL PETITION at the 59×132 RECALL SHACK….



Thank you all.

My best to you and yours, Lew

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7th, 2020/2102hrs

A BIG thank you to the 13 folks who stopped by to sign today!  (Technically, more than 13 came by – some were just visiting – always welcome

(Did I mention there are ONLY TWO MORE DAYS TO SIGN THE ONLY STATE APPROVED PETITION TO RECALL GAVIN NEWSOM AS CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR!) some are couples where one had already signed, or a signer with friends, etc.)  Anyway….THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!  I look forward to more adequately expressing some of the things this recall journey as confirmed for me while simultaneously educating me to the experiences expressed by others. Yeah, not very clear. I’m rather tired tonight. More later. Have a few images of today’s adventure…..

<But then, suddenly… an extremely loud, deep echoing commanding type voice  – (like on the original Wizard of Oz -yes I date myself)……>



OH YEAH? Guess what? A new record was set this morning at +/- 0530hrs …….


Viewers know I’m not comfortable mentioning someone’s name under these circumstances without specific approval, so I’ll just say this early-bird gentleman was from Los Banos and lives at



gottcha! lol

anyway, this gentleman was in route to the lake and saw me setting up. He stopped, got out of his vehicle, approached “the shack area” and asked if too early and should he come back later? …. “absolutely not” I said as I tackled him to the ground before he could change his mind as Liz barked from the pickup cab……..nah, …… didn’t tackle him, but did advise he was a record setter. Yup, this earliest signer made all those previous early morning setups worthwhile!  (Had several in the +/- 0700 – however, as one might expect most people don’t like stopping in a (creepy music fades in) rural……isolated county intersection….. under a red flashing light when it’s 30 degrees F to meet a perfect stranger in the dark to provide personal identifying information while a dog of unknown temperament is barking from an open pickup door window in the background …..

Did I mention there are only TWO DAYS LEFT for signing the ONLY OFFICIAL CALIFORNIA SECRETARY OF STATE APPROVED NEWSOM RECALL PETITION at the Flashing Red Traffic Light Recall Shack at HWY59xHWY132 in La Grange CA? (There must be adequate time for processing by the February 13th deadline.)

Paperwork finished…. here are today’s results:

MERCED                             4

TOULUMNE                       4

MARIPOSA                         3

STANISLAUS                       2

TOTAL FRIDAY:              13                  THANK YOU ALL!(Your State thanks you too!) 



Got to get going…but here are some shots from Friday’s adventure.

Friday morning Moon setting in a westerly direction
Fortunately much warmer than yesterday (I CAN’T FEEL MY TOES!)
See the Moon through the Oak trees?
Sure was glad when this number rolled over! lol Thought about not reporting it, but hey! It’s a frigg’n number! Shouldn’t relate to anything else, still rather curious about all those requests to pose by the utility pole?(lol)
Did I mention there are only 2 days left to sign the NEWSOM RECALL PETITION?
“Frequent flyers” in La Grange
Well, Moon rising in the East….sun setting in the west, must be quitting time.





THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6th, 2020/1930hrs


Found this in yesterday’s notes (a little boring when there are no signers. OOOOhhhh…… don’t want to hear/read any more LAME stuff? Get folks to come down and sign and keep me busy! lol


Tearing up President Trump’s State of the Union

Said more about Nancy Pelosi and her fits

Confirming once again for those who watch

She’s just an arrogant disrespectful piece of Schiff!








pretty close to yesterday’s morning temp, yeah?
Thursday just before dawn
STARTING COUNT Thursday morning
You might be surprised at all the stuff embedded in the asphalt around the intersection. When this is all over I’ll post a photo of all the “flat tire” items I’ve picked up while walking around waiting for the next signer to arrive.
Any La Grange locals looking for a lost lucky lock? or…..asphalt security locks only work when they are locked! or… way to secure a highway? or……
Thursday running count. THANK YOU ALL! Now “herd” some more in! lol (note: a number of folks picked up blanks today! WAY TO GO! Three signers to a page – if more folks did that????) REMEMBER: We only have three more days~! Incidentally, beautiful day today, don’t you think? later

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6th, 2020/0400hrs (posting of yesterday’s morning photo)

Rather cold for Wednesday’s predawn setup. Ahhhh, feels so good when that old glowing gas bag finally gets up. (NO! I’m not referring to Nancy Pelosi! lol)

OK! Let’s get to it for the next few days and acquire as many signatures as possible! Who knows? This truly be our last opportunity to make needed change in our California. To me the big question should be:

if all this Socialist-Left movement is truly wanted and GOOD FOR THE LEGAL CITIZENS OF CALIFORNIA…..why must Newsom and Xavier Becerra lie about what they are really doing? REmember the REPEAL THE GAS TAX misleading statement by Becerra last time? Well, he is doing EXACTLY THE SAME THING THIS TIME WITH PROPOSITION 13!

Seriously, think about it, how can they possibly continue to GIVE AWAY THE TAXPAYERS MONEY without much more coming in?

Sure, those who want FREE STUFF will vote for such an unethical assault on the taxpayers burden but only property owners will pay for such an abuse of government power and authority.

Didn’t like the death penalty – so it disappeared. Do you think Newsom wants another recall? This is likely our last chance!

Shake the trees and bushes and get those registered voter signatures! See you later, Lew

Wednesday morning continued ……

Pelosi’s stunt fired me up…..OK, last few days folks. Those of you who have been so kind to spread the word through social media, – again, thank you very much….but our California desperately needs us all to get as many signatures as possible! Anyway you prefer – stop by HWY 59×132 sign – I’ll process for you; stop by “the shack” and I ‘ll provide you with FREE BLANKS and you can be a “circulator” yourself. Don’t let the form intimidate you – it’s easy and all instructions are on (I can also fill you in on some of the things I’ve learned if you wish. Family, friends, friends of friends, social clubs, whatever! This could truly be our last opportunity to stop this nonsense (if such a Socialist-Left governor can continue to ignore the majority of voting citizens as to the government THEY WANT, what’s to stop him from going even further? (Why even spend the time and money for an election when the public so clearly supports Gavin Newsom, his Auntie Nancy Pelosi, etc and the Socialist-Left domination of our once proud state? Why not? If enough people do not sign this ONLY OFFICIAL STATE APPROVED recall petition to remove GAVIN NEWSOM as governor, laws will inevitably be changed to prevent any further attempts. So, this is it folks. Really want to save your entire state from looking like the Streets of the NEW SAN FRANCISCO, LOS ANGELES, etc)

Get out there and gather signatures! Turn them in yourself or drop them by the RECALL SHACK HWY59 x HWY 132 at the flashing red traffic light – LA Grange Fruit Stand SE corner. HOWEVER do not forget…..THEY MUST BE IN THE CORRECT COUNTY ELECTIONS OFFICE BY FEB 13th TO BE VALID

Again, thank you all! OK Wednesday, Feb 5th, 2020 results:






TOTAL: 16 WAY TO GO! 643 Grand total Not bad for the first time out on a weekday! Alrighty then, let’s do this or never complain about what is happening, and will continue to happen, to our wonderful California. Socialism is easy to incrementally vote in (“free stuff” gets a lot of votes, but still costs money you know?) but you must FIGHT to get out when it inevitably fails. See you out there! MBTYAY, Lew

PS: Ballpoint pens only! No gelpens (I know, they’re my favorite also). Carefully explain with examples how to fill the form out (YES! You can fill it out for those signers who need assistance….everything except the signature OR MARK!) Thank you all…..especially for the honks and waves of support…gets a little discouraging at times…..feet hurt too! lol later.


Nancy Pelosi sure cleared up a major difference between Democrats and Republicans last night, yeah? Although conservatives certainly disagreed with Obama’s transformation of America I don’t recall any conservatives tearing up his State of the Union on camera for the world to see. Perhaps this personality characteristic provides some explanation as to why Gavin Newsom treats the legal California voting citizens the way he does while continuing his pursuit of damaging Socialist Left policies for OUR CALIFORNIA?

MONDAY, February 3rd, 2020

My best to you and yours, Lew

SUNDAY, February 2nd, 2020

I would have never guessed….and on game day!

Sixteen signatures!







627 GRAND TOTAL (Weekends since Nov 17th 2019)

Again, thank you all for taking the time and being concerned about OUR STATE. No doubt much more later as I have learned very much the last couple of months. MBTYAY, Lew


SUNDAY, February 2nd, 2020


START 590 + 21 = 611 then + 9 turn-ins = 620! Way to go.
Absolutely frightening that 1) the case was even heard (due to obvious faults and errors), and 2) the vote would be this close considering the obvious UNCONSTITUTIONAL NATURE of this extremely biased partisan attack on President Trump. Trying to identify, does the US Constitution require/suggest a bi-partisan impeachment? THe Socialist-Left-Democrats have gone rogue and need to be replaced as soon as possible as there is NO INTEGRITY!
More later! And you thought you had escaped? lol








GUESS WHAT? Another 8 from Mariposa and 1 from Tuolumne (9 total!) from another local Patriot! How cool is that! Thank you so much. So, 30 signatures counting all for the day (I’ve only been updating the board with those I witnessed @59×132)


Gosh, sure hope such a valuable offer doesn’t cause a traffic jam! lol

Might be a “going out of business” giveaway. (You will be responsible for mailing or delivering them to the appropriate elections office by February 13th, 2020!

If so (going out of business), again thank you all so very much. I can honestly say, regardless of what happens, I wouldn’t trade the experience of meeting you all for anything. I’m tired. More later.

Sorry about any typos…don’t like this keyboard … difficult to work with…..did I already mention that? I firgit. later

VOTES on some of Chuck Schumer’s nonsense: 49/51 49/51 (still watching House Impeachment Democrats make a bunch of motions for their continued attack on Our President Trump who has already tolerated more than any other president in history. Enough is enough. All should get back to the business of America and her citizens. (Of course for the Left impeachment of the President has been their primary focus since he announced his intentions as a candidate. Want to talk about bullying?

Remember when the Supreme Court ruled on reading Constitutional Rights to suspects? Miranda Rights in CA? Mentioned in every cop show ever made? “Read that scumbag their rights and book ’em!” The Fruit of the Poisonous Tree Doctrine? Remember those horrid cases where all the evidence clearly indicated the defendant’s guilt but there was no valid search warrant so all SOLID EVIDENCE was thrown out of court? Even confessions were inadmissible if the person was not first advised of their of their Constitutional Right to remain silent (plead the 5th in court) or the right to counsel which would be provided free? Yup, interesting how the President of the United States isn’t afforded the same rights we all are supposed to have under the Constitution.

Was this impeachment supposed to be bi-partisan under the Constitution? I’ve got to stop watching this (recorded) ….I have petitions to give away! lol

FRIDAY, JANUARY 31st, 2020


(Naw, was actually just telling reporters only one question at a time -lol)

Anonymous complainants, secret closed door hearings, inability to confront accusers, second hand-third hand hearsay information, incompetence, clear hatred and bias for President Trump (perhaps a bit envious of his success), “deep state activists”, Socialist Left obstructionists, administration holdovers sabotaging Trump policies, etc.

House Impeachment Val Demings made this statement in her presentation:

“Fundamental fairness requires

evidence in trials”

You’ve got to be kidding me!~ This from a 20+ year former law enforcement officer? Wonder how many people she arrested for drunk driving but never obtained a blood, breath or urine sample? Never read an arrestee their Constitutional Rights? Perhaps Ms Demings forgot that before one ever gets to a court or trial they must first be LEGALLY ARRESTED AND PROSECUTED. (Pssst, hey Val! That generally requires probable cause and solid evidence PRIOR TO ARREST AND PROSECUTION that a crime was indeed committed ….not a contiually growing list of hostile witnesses to an incident a long time ago before an already impaneled jury! Good Heavens! These jokers are using the media again to cover up their total INcompetency! Seriously, I think they owe the American taxpayer a BIG ASS refund!)

These DEMOCRAT IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS are clearly demonstrating what sort of America they have in store for the rest of us if they can get away with doing this to the GREATEST PRESIDENT IN MODERN AGE!

Don’t even think about what these Socialist Left Democrats say –



So I am watching the Senate Impeachment Trial and using a tablet and portable keyboard to record some notes. I had just typed “I forgot” (was going to comment on forgetting to do something else) when I glanced at the screen and saw “U firgit”. What? Seriously.

When your right hand is positioned incorrectly on the keyboard (right hand index finger on the letter “H” instead of “J”, you get U firgit instead of I forgot. Thought it interesting that a simple little hand positioning error could point out a major problem in dealing with these Socialist Left Democrats……..we “firgit” all the ridiculous stuff they do because it is constantly being updated with more ridiculous garbage! I forgot, and U firgit! lol PLEASE! Make a point of watching that WHC response, extremely interesting and explains much. These Socialist Left Democrat obstructionists must go! Democratus TermiteISIS! lol Mbtyay, Lew

NOTE: This LAME was based on some of the information in the opening presentation by Jay Sekulow the Presidents attorney. All White House Counsel gave compelling and educational presentations. Quite refreshing after months of the same inferior “wishful garbage” by House Impeachment Democrats. Absolutely disgusting they are paid to misrepresent the Constitution like they do.

MONDAY, JANUARY 27th, 2020/1656hrs

WOW! Finally completed day one, and started day two of the White House Counsel defense. Good Heavens! Talk about logically, but more importantly – legally shredding the House DEMOCRAT MANAGERS’ IMPEACHMENT CASE! Finally, sensible comments on what DEMS have been shoving down America’s throat. Recall all those objections that were ignored by the DEMS during the House “RUSH TO JUDGEMENT”?

All their partisan “shortcuts” and deceptions are coming home to roost completely on their shoulders. Yup, sure appears to be absolutely devastating to any common sense and legally confined analysis of this ridiculous trial against President Trump by panicked, sore losing Socialist Left Democrats fearful of the 2020 election.

Simply, DEMS are terrified with permitting the American public to elect their own president! This is going to quite interesting.

Sure wish those that support this perverted version of America by the DEMS would watch the White House response as dutifully as I have watched the Democrat misrepresentations for months! How could anyone argue against the undisputed facts regarding the lack of procedural due process and the horrific abuse of authority by the House of Representatives led by Rep Jerome Nadler with the entire scam orchestrated by Senator Adam Schiff who is the House Intelligence Chairman who conspired with the Biden CIA holdover “deep state activist” who they incorrectly refer to as a “whistle blower” as if his actions have been ethical? And this is only maybe half way through the president’s defense? This is historic foolishness that will be condemned for many years and has cost a substantial amount of public funds and resources that could obviously have been better spent on better government. Democrats should be required to pay back such waste of taxpayer money.

Here are 2 photos from yesterday’s petition outing-

Supervisor thought

Sunday, January 26th, 2333hrs update:

WOW! 25! Even with morning fog, rain, sprinkles…..then sunshine!

Here’s the breakdown:

We have a tie for the TOP SCORE! (Of course there are many “outstanding” that will be coming in from various counties also, ie, signers who wanted other blanks to circulate themselves. WAY TO GO! We are rapidly running out of time. If you’re not registered log on to the California Secretary of State Website and do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! If you know folks who are not registered help them do so, then give them the opportunity to help save our precious CALIFORNIA! )


STANISLAUS 8 (Stanislaus has kicked some Newsom highway ass lately!)





SUN TOTAL: 25 (590 since Nov 17th doing weekends)

Sorry but I’m fading fast (00:00+) Whoa! Just finished the first part of the White House Counsel presentation… about seriously kicking some Socialist Left Democrat Impeachment Ass! Finally! The truth is coming out thanks to common sense, logic, legal facts, etc. Yes indeed, Adam Schiff et al, should all be held accountable for their absolute betrayal of our Country, Constitution, legal citizens, abuse of their power and authority, attempted coup against OUR PRESIDENT, etc. They are lying cheats and should pay for their crimes and at a minimum be removed from office as soon as possible!


Sunday, January 26th, 2020/0430hrs


You know what? If we could manage another 14-20 on a rainy day…that would be great! FOLKS, …….the time is ticking away. February 13th is the end of the recall effort but for “circulators” (like yours truly), February 6th is the last day to hang around HWY59xHWY132 waiting for Patriots to stop by. (Of course there are many “blank petitions” which were handed out for return later…..get those in as soon as possible!)

As blah, blah, blahed before, if you want to get signatures yourself and either don’t currently have a legitimate petition to have copied or are unsure of the address….or don’t want to deal with self addressed stamped #10 envelopes……???


I’LL GIVE YOU ONE/SOME along with a crash course on getting it filled out properly, then simply drop it back off to me and I will insure proper processing.

(Unfortunately, in this day and age of “deep state activists” who believe they can violate any law or regulation when pursuing their distorted “SOCIAL JUSTICE” campaign of actual lawlessness, I don’t trust high density populations with large government operations – say like the US POSTAL SERVICE in Sacramento. All it takes is a couple of well placed Socialist Leftist Democrats in key positions and presto! Where did those stuffed envelopes go? Democrat magic!

I implicitly trust our local Post Office Officials, but when mail routinely goes all the way to Sacramento first before turning around and returning only to jog a few further miles to the east, well, let’s just say there are a lot of opportunities for an “ANTI-TRUMPER” to make an envelope disappear that is addressed to a location his “Leftist Command” has designated as TRUMP ORGANIZATION (even though it clearly is not, it is a bipartisan recall effort to remove a very dangerous individual pretending to be a real governor who listens to the voters.

But of course, we must also realize (and trust) that type of criminal activity might be surreptitiously monitored for just such occurrence, yeah? What a perfect opportunity for the “good guys” to do a little house cleaning of “deep state” criminals pretending to be activists who simply steal and destroy US Mail…..ummmm, isn’t that still a federal offense?

YES! STANISLAUS COUNTY had the greater number of signatures on Saturday again, but it was close. (This is a “catch up” report earlier Sunday morning.)


SATURDAY, January 25th, 2020/1855hrs

HOWDY! Ok, here’s the report….and again, thank you all so much! Extremely reassuring to know others see and understand the same thing! Enough for now….here are the counties and numbers:







Thanks again – I’ll add more tomorrow! MBTYAY, Lew


Friday, January 24th, 2020 (continued) 1948hrs

Yup, a frightening thought when President Putin appears more trustworthy and possess more credibility than House Intelligence Committee Chairman “Shifty” Adam Schiff and his band of Anti-American Socialist Left Democrats! Our Country’s most dangerous enemy dwells within the Washington DC political SWAMP!

FRIDAY, JANUARY 24th, 2020/1120hrs

Yesterday, following a grocery and materials run, I returned home to stow the bounty in garage, cabinets, refrigerator and freezer then plopped down in the recliner for some television time.  A big mistake if I wanted to relax because the channel was left on CNN coverage of the Senate impeachment trial.  You know, that is an interesting aspect in itself.

While OAN routinely reports on worldwide news, as a personal “check of sources” I occasionally switch to CNN to see what news they were reporting.  Most often CNN presents nothing more than some panel of Democrats discussing how bad President Trump is and why their impeachment is so important to maintaining the American Democracy –  <gag! Can’t believe some people actually eat such feldercarb>   – yet when the President is making some appearance somewhere CNN rarely covers the matter like other news sources.  Do you recall how ANYTIME Obama was speaking somewhere just about every single channel covered the occasion?  Well, not for a President pursuing PRO USA & legal citizen goals! 

Unless it is impeachment related or can somehow be twisted and repackaged into potential bad news for TRUMP and/or his administration, you can only count on CNN for their steadfast Socialist/Left/Democrat support blah blah blah panels of Trump haters.   Anyway, the last time I used the television I was watching their impeachment scam coverage so when I turned on the television yesterday there’s Democrat Impeachment Manager Representative Demings going on dramatically explaining their view that the President was attempting to utilize his position of authority for his political benefit. 

What?  Trump was, is, and will continue to be, quite busy DRAINING THE SWAMP as requested by the American public who is tired of disinformation, Socialist Left Democrat false promises and excuses for such Anti-American activities by Democrat officials, agencies, and departments.    The PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY want President Trump to make sure US TAXPAYER DOLLARS are going to a foreign state which will assist in the support and protection USA interests.   Political corruption and theft of huge sums of money is something OUR PRESIDENT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATING, yet Democrats are far more concerned with attempting to further conceal their former Democrat Vice President Joe Biden’s highly unethical dealings with Ukrainian officials in protection of his wayward son’s (and others’) money stream from Burisma energy company.  Imagine that?  Not one Democrat interested in that massive corruption coverup?

So I’m listening to Ms Demings drone on about what she and her party thinks of President Trump, which incidentally, is THE VERY SAME STUFF we’ve heard for months!  Nothing new, but quite telling as they CLAIMED and continue to CLAIM to have a great case with enough compelling hard core evidence to prosecute OUR PRESIDENT immediately….. but then want to reopen their closed House investigation so they can pile on even more skewed hearsay information and testimony to their already ridiculously vacant case.  I believe one of the Republican officials said it best, when he commented if such a case were brought in a criminal court not only would the judge dismiss it for lack of evidence but sanctions would be brought against the attorneys presenting such a politically motivated case devoid of evidence.

So I’m listening to Demings and reading along with the statements she is quoting in her barrage of false accusations against the president when I thought I heard/observed a conflicting statement between her reciting (quoting) prior testimony of Democrat witness Ms Hill (frankly I did not have much confidence in ANY of her testimony) and what was actually presented in the news captioning.    Something wasn’t right……so I went back to check…..what do you think?

Who has the time to check everything these “CHEATS” present? You would think for something as important as attempting to remove a duly elected US President, an Impeachment Manager House Representative would get her information straight – especially when prefacing her statement of another person’s testimony with “and I quote”! Nothing but DRAMA DEMOCRATS staring in their Socialist Left “Panic Play”. Sure might encourage one to wonder just how many people in Florida may have been wrongfully arrested, convicted in court, and served, or are currently serving prison time due to disinformation presented by Ms Demings while “serving the public” in law enforcement? Mbty&y, Lew

WEDNESDAY, Jan 22, 2020/

Good morning all. Yes the following article is rather long but well worth the time on a very important subject which the SOCIALIST LEFT DEMOCRATS have

once again completely misrepresented

in their panicked rush to appear relevant to the American public. No doubt these Democrats are our country’s worst enemies and should be removed from their positions of public betrayal in the upcoming 2020 election and every election that follows.


Declaring war versus waging war.

Excellent article in explaining the difference while simultaneously pointing out how the DEMOCRATS fail to support our country in favor of their politically motivated Socialist Left nonsense!

Yes indeed, I will say it again…. personally, I prefer even the illegal immigrants entering this country who were/are sincerely looking for the opportunity of honest work and a better life for themselves and their families (versus the millions summoned here by Socialist Left Democrats looking for “BOUGHT VOTES” by promising FREE EVERYTHING to those without “skin in the game” YET paid for by the already overtaxed and regulated average legal citizen.)

….. than ANY of these SOCIALIST LEFT DEMOCRATS who routinely “sell out America” and her legal citizens in order to maintain their positions in OUR US GOVERNMENT where they actively work against OUR AMERICAN PRINCIPLES and VALUES.

They (SLDs) intentionally do this in their continuing failed attempt to harm a great president who has, and is, answering a sincere call by the PATRIOTIC AMERICAN CITIZEN to DRAIN THAT POLITICAL SWAMP! (NOTE: Political party is not an issue in this respect as there are LEGITIMATE AMERICAN PATRIOTS in every political camp who can discern and support the COMMON SENSE actions of TRUMP & PENCE over that of the continuing disinformation and propaganda produced and distributed by Socialist Left Democrat activists.)


Drain that SWAMP of dishonest characters like Nancy Pelosi, Jerome Nadler, Adam Schiff, Chuck Shumer, etc. (I would be here for hours researching and listing all of the Socialist Left Democrat American traitors attempting to “reconfigure America” into their perverted vision! A vision exemplified in what paticular current country on this planet? That’s right. Doesn’t exist. They want to gamble with the greatest freedoms ever provided to citizen’s of a country in hopes of obtaining what they want: TOTAL and COMPLETE CONTROL! )

These traitors make much talk about American values, truth, honor and justice…..

(same way in which GAVIN NEWSOM and Xavier Becerra replace the factual historic CALIFORNIA VALUES with their corrupted Socialist Left anti-American goals – simple BAIT & SWITCH which works on those who fail to do their own research and mistakenly trust such dishonest individuals – Repeal the Gas Tax? Prop 13 disinformation? California Death penalty? [Strange, NEWSOM & Becerra refuse to uphold the California voter’s decision on the death penalty yet have no qualms about instituting it [A DEATH PENALTY] against our state in the attempt to achieve their anti-American – anti-Californian goals!] Oh yeah, and don’t forget how they absurdly assert that President Donald Trump is responsible for all their failed Leftist scams against the California legal citizen!

…..they (Socialist Left Democrats) demand to have the same authority and power as the duly elected President, yet when provided with the perfect opportunity to put their professed high standards and integrity to a PUBLIC TEST by simply acknowledging the OBVIOUS corruption within their own DEMOCRAT PARTY (recently clearly documented with former Democrat VP Biden’s QUID PRO QUO VIDEO where he laughingly admits to abusing his position of authority and power to protect the BURISMA CORRUPTION providing millions in laundered cash to his son and other Democrat cheats), ……. they are not just silent on the issue, but take extraordinary measures to further conceal and cover up their duplicity!

America did not elect crooked Hillary Clinton, much less Nancy Pelosi and her assorted dancing Leftists to clean up and defend this country and it’s citizens.



And that is exactly what OUR PRESIDENT is doing and the “SWAMP DWELLING CRITTERS” don’t like it one bit and will do ANYTHING to obstruct the wonderful progress TRUMP and his administration are making in that continuing effort.

(Phew! Maybe I shouldn’t read the news first thing in the morning? lol)

Here’s the article, please read and consider the important distinctions between declaring war and waging war.

Thank you Mother Lode District 4 Congressman Tom McClintock for your below illuminating article – too bad we couldn’t force the left to read and understand!

Tuesday, Jan 21, 2020/0610hrs

Good morning! Just couldn’t get this out of my mind from yesterday’s reading about our current California Department of Justice Attorney General Xavier Becerra:

“Becerra’s server which was illegally tapped into about 60 other

congressional members offices. None of the dozens of Democrats, who

also paid the Awan’s, pressed charges.

(The above quote from the second “Democrat IT Scandal” link below.)

Seriously, think about that…..all Democrat congressional information being funneled to a Socialist Left Character like Becerra and data being hacked from outside thousands of times with all that confidential information going “who knows where” in the world? Then when things start heating up Becerra is appointed as California’s highest law enforcement official and leaves Washington DC? Good grief how can there be any surprise that California is lawless with the likes of Becerra heading the DOJ?

Notice also in the video presentation how Becerra goes on about the public’s right to request public information?……Notice the “qualifier”, the right to REQUEST, but not RECEIVE? Typical sounds good Democrat talk which turns out to be worthless feel good garbage that only perpetuates wrongful activity in their DEMOCRAT SWAMP!

(Again, there are many “good Patriotic Democrats” who are apparently holding on to their cherished Democrat Party affiliation of the past which has unfortunately been hi-jacked by the radical Socialist-Left but there may be another aspect of this which I have missed. I was told the other weekend by some signers that they personally know many Democrats that, although remaining with that party, are never-the-less strong Trump supporters and absolutely disgusted with the Impeachment Scam currently exhausting precious time, money, and resources from what citizens truly expect from their government…….honest service to the people – not their political parties. You know, that makes sense.

Who really cares what you may be called in “whatever” political party so long as you stand and vote for the founding principles of this Nation? Who knows, such patriots in the Democrat Party may be a surprise “punch” to the radical Socialist Left which is destroying our State and Country with misrepresentations and absolute lies?


The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a country of south Asia created in 1947 as a state for IndianMuslims on August 14, 1947 as a result of the partition of India. It is bordered by Iran, Afghanistan, India and China, and has a coastline on the Arabian Sea. Its capital is Islamabad; other major centres include Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar. The nation is about 97% Muslim, as many Hindus and Sikhs native to the region were slaughtered during the partition of British India, which many opposed.[1] Pakistan, a large poor country with a weak economy—but with nuclear weapons—is friendly to the U.S. but hostile to neighboring India, a much larger country. Pakistan has an unstable political system, with Taliban terrorists growing in strength in remote mountain regions, where they support the insurgency in neighboring Afghanistan.

Gosh, wonder how much information from Becerra’s server also made it to Russia, Ukraine and other countries? So what do Democrats do in response to this MAJOR INTELLIGENCE HACK OF DEMOCRAT LEADERS? REfuse to file complaints and instead accuse PRESIDENT TRUMP of wrongful behavior! Outrageous!


See what NEWSOM and BECERRA (and supporters) are doing? They replace true CALIFORNIA VALUES with their perverted political scams and dishonesty (and use it to disguise their true motives) yet wrongfully tell citizens TRUMP is trying to destroy “CALIFORNIA VALUES” which is absolute hog wash!

These Socialist Left Democrats have substituted their crimes and betrayal of the the public for the legitimate and worthy California perspectives which made this state a beacon for desired change and hope. Californians have always been extremely understanding and compassionate towards others, but the Socialist Left has weaponized that compassion and turned it against THE TRUE CALIFORNIANS who made this once proud state.

Climate change? Not really a big issue when things like Getty Oil money and influence orchestrated Newsom’s PLUMP JACK wine fortune and vast holdings of wine country (humm, Napa, Mendecino, Lake Counties refusing to turn over Newsom Petition receipts? Surely just a coincidence. Only 32 people in the entire San Francisco area support Newsom’s recall? lol

The Socialist-Left-Democrats ARE THE SWAMP yet cling to the hope Californians, as well as the rest of the country, will continue to buy into their BAIT AND SWITCH antics to destroy California and the Nation in favor of their foreign political ambitions. Leftist ambitions that have already inflicted much damage and will continue to do so if not stopped by the LEGITIMATE VOTER who is waking up to this outrageous disinformation campaign that everything is TRUMP’s fault….. when in actuality, they are only projecting on TRUMP exactly what they have been doing for decades!

BETRAYING THE LEGITIMATE LEGAL CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY – but fortunately CITIZENS ARE WAKING UP a little more every single day to this diabolical betrayal!

REM that LAME tune chorus?



Monday, 01202020 2020hrs … just couldn’t resist. lol

Anyway……below is what I recalled about that missing Democrat Caucus server which was apparently set up to direct all other data of other congress personnel to the server under control of Xavier Becerra.

Fortunately, the part of this rather long video I was referencing is at the beginning, however, at the very end is an interesting prediction by Xavier Becerra,,,, (A similar one is heard on an OAN (ONE AMERICA NEWS) CH347 DirecTV commercial, something like, As California goes, so goes the rest of the nation” Becerra says to watch California because other states and territories need California so they will be doing “it” as well.

Reminded me of a parcel of Nevada land I was interested in, especially since it appeared as though power might be available, but it turned out the generation was by coal and California refused to purchase the power so the plant closed along with proposed increased availability for residential service in the area. Oh well, back to the “off grid” property search.

I have heard that hundreds of thousands have left California including many businesses going to other states that appreciate their service, product, etc. Who knows. I’ve talked with folks in Nevada who have already observed a negative California influence. Heck, I read some Nevada statues that actually referred to CA Law as the basis of it’s law! That’s scary.

Monday, Jan 20th, 2020 / 1600 +/- (Continued)

Wow, check it out….no wonder we didn’t hear much of the history of our current California Department of Justice Attorney General Xavier Becerra while in Washington DC regarding that missing DEMOCRAT CAUCUS COMPUTER SERVER in his charge ……closed hearings and not one of the “victim Democrats” filed a complaint?

Yet look at the time, public funds and resources spent by these Left Democrats in their failed attempt to project their own actual crimes and unethical practices on OUR SUCCESSFUL PRESIDENT TRUMP – especially involving Ukraine and Russia!

Look at the money paid to these “IT” specialists. Look how many times the information on that server (which evidently possessed the records of many other Democrat congressional officials which were supposed to be on their own private and protected government servers…..yet collected to Becerra’s! Then it went “missing” when the investigation as launched.

Gosh, also consider the fact the brother of the main actor in this IT scam of Democrat information hacking was married to a Ukrainian. Geez, these leftist’s must solicit for second, third and forth hand information from ANYONE who might suggest or makeup something suspicious or bad against TRUMP in their SHAM OF IMPEACHMENT DISTRACTION – yet their ENTIRE PARTY is filled with perfect examples of unethical, criminal and Quid Pro Quo behavior.

Sounds just like Hillary Clinton and her thousands of emails on NON SECURED GOVERNMENT SERVERS – many with classified information jeopardizing who knows how many lives around the world?

REM? “There are no such emails!” “Ooops, except for these……and these…..and a few thousand over here…….” “Maybe a few hundered over there…..” Absolutely disgusting. Benghazi and all that? Interviewed by the FBI yet not under Oath? lol

Yet a “Biden Left Democrat political deep state CIA spy activist – Obama holdover” can have reporting requirements changed to protect him as a “whistle blower” so he and crooked Democrat ADAM SCHIFF and others could surreptitiously cook up an impeachment plot to remove President Trump while BIDEN & SON et al are still counting BURISMA money out of the UKRAINE! And so much more!

Left Democrats are tripping over each other exclaiming how bad Trump was for questioning the corruption of US Foreign Aid to Ukraine…..but golly gee Professor….the crooks, corruption and coverup all seem to originate and continue within the DEMOCRAT PARTY…..check out this article about our current Attorney General…. does he sound like a law and order type Left activist? lol

MONDAY, JANUARY 20th, 2020

Sorry, I ran out of steam yesterday and failed to update the petition signing. My bad. So here it is for SUNDAY January 19th, 2020:









Considering the weather (cold and foggy) still a good turnout, thank you all! Actually, I’m still surprised when a vehicle pulls over and I approach the driver and they say something like: “Oh, you come to me?” You betcha! No reason for you to get out of your vehicle – I’m already there! Guess I need another sign huh? …….. DRIVE-THROUGH PETITION SIGNING? lol Of course some folks want to get out of the vehicle due to a long drive already made or coming up. Doesn’t matter to me, but when I see a vehicle pull over “into the zone of interest” I immediately approach so they don’t have to get out of their vehicle.

Again, thank you all for stopping by and signing – now get out there and rustle up some more family and friend signers!

HOW ABOUT THIS? Would you like to circulate your own petition for just a few folks? Stop by HWY59xHWY132 and I can provide you with some blank forms and a quick “how to” (full instructions on You can send them in yourself, or drop them off to me for processing.





I understand the reluctance. I’ve never done this before either, but once you get going it isn’t that difficult —- certainly easier than looking for a new home state! not so lol. What NEWSOM and his ilk are doing is wrong. They are killing those of us in the middle of the extremely wealthy and the extremely poor.


“missing Washington DC computer server Xavier Becerra” (our state’s highest LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER? LOL) is successful in repealing PROPOSITION 13, many more of us may not even have a choice but to leave our home state due to substantially increased taxes.


Every time I have grocery shopped in the last year I have noticed a reduction in purchasing power and it is getting worse every month. Not to mention how so many items are locked up in cabinets now to reduce the escalating theft. Certainly not convenient shopping any more.

I find it difficult to believe more folks don’t understand NEWSOM & COMPANY cannot keep giving away public funds to those not even California citizens (and other suspicious Socialist/Left/Democrat activities) without reaching further into the pockets of average legal citizens who are already just trying to survive in this current STATE OF CALIFUSION with its over regulation, unnecessarily high taxes and absolute waste of OUR TAX MONEY. It is only going to get worse if legal citizens don’t stand up and object. It doesn’t have to be like this folks. COMMON SENSE SHOULD REIGN, not radical far left goals set on the reconfiguration of America.

Raise my property taxes? Heck, I can’t even obtain PUBLIC RECORDS WHICH THE LAW STATES I HAVE A RIGHT TO OBTAIN!


Like I tell the folks who stop by to sign the NEWSOM RECALL PEITION –






OH yeah, another BIG THANK YOU to those who have advertised on social media sites – many signers have told me that’s where they learned of the opportunity! (I don’t use Facebook, etc.) Good work!

My best to you and yours, Lew

Breezy before dawn
Thanks to Sunday’s 15 – the next setup will begin with 551! Way to go CA travelers!


Cold and foggy day, but a great turn out – thank you all!

Although it is rare someone will stop by to sign before sun up, several stated they saw me predawn but couldn’t stop at the time. Perfect. later, Lew









TOTAL: 30 + previous 506 = 536 on Saturdays & Sundays (well, 534 because 2 were snagged on a foggy weekday) since November 17th, 2019 (Plus there were approximately 50 signatures by other circulators! Not bad for just hanging around waiting to meet more nice folks who are obviously informed.

I’ve said it before and will undoubtedly say it many more times during this recall process….. regardless of what happens …. this experience has been absolutely fantastic for me personally. Where else would I have met 536 great folks who stopped by to sign as I have already? Actually more than that since many times one spouse/companion had already signed and they stopped so the other could sign as well. Geez, then there were the carloads of folks where some had already signed, so I’ve probably met over a thousand wonderful people at that intersection. Looking forward to meeting many more of you as well! TICK TICK TICK……..time is getting short….if you plan to stay in California and are not a millionaire start collecting signatures or volunteer in some other way, donate to RANAF.ORG – talk with friends and family. If Becerra’s current misrepresentation of the PROP 13 issue is successful (like it was with the “repeal the gas tax” scam wording he used despite admonishment by a Superior Court Judge, get ready for a massive property tax hike coming soon! These socialist left democrats are great at giving away public funds in an effort to stay in office but then immediately turn to the already abused taxpayer to fund their political careers as they continue to “give away the store”! Absolute bullshit. Talk to people….educate them……..get them to a NEWSOM RECALL STAND! Again, thank you all for taking the time to stop by and sign…….now get out there and bring me MORE! lol (kind of joking, kind of not….lol).

My best to you and yours, Lew


Thursday morning thought: shall we just cut through all the Socialist, Left, Democrat propaganda pushing this ludicrous impeachment scam and get to the heart of the matter using a few questions?

First question:

Did President Donald Trump violate clear requirements contained in the United States CONSTITUTION for this Democrat Impeachment process to even begin, much less flounder and be used as a disingenuous political tool of the left in an attempt to leverage the senate before finally being transmitted to the Senate?


Second question:

Why has such activity been permitted to continue?

Because Socialist Left Democrats have complete control of the House of Representatives which is the only entity that could possibly bring articles of impeachment against a sitting president, even if nonconforming to the Constitutional requirements.

Third question:

If the articles of impeachment do not conform to the requirements under the US Constitution for such an impeachment proceeding, why is this massive waste of time, money and resources of the American taxpayer being expended on such an Unconstitutional Socialist Left Democrat political attack on our President?

Because they are Socialist Left Democrats who are still very upset that their intended queen Hillary Rodham Clinton lost their RIGGED 2016 presidential election. These Democrats are unable to handle the reality HRC lost and are dedicated to removing President Trump by any means imaginable including wrongful use of the authority and power entrusted to the US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

Fourth question: Why would the Socialist Left Democrats intentionally violate clear impeachment requirements of the US Constitution in their myopic pursuit to remove President Donald Trump?

(Refer to above) Because they are also Socialist Left Democrats who have no respect for law when it does not support their Anti-American agenda. Essentially, they do not give a rat’s ass about the US Constitution, the United States of American or the legal US Citizen who continues to pay for such outrageous behavior orchestrated by a group of childish poor sport losing cheaters commonly known as Socialist Left Democrats.

Fifth question: What can American Patriot Citizens do to correct such an abomination of Justice within our Country?

Vote every single Socialist Left Democrat out of local, state and federal positions of trust in the 2020 election and keep them out!

Here is a good formula (and it is of no surprise that news reports often now omit the “D” (Democrat) and “R” (Republican) letter indicator!)

“D” stands for DUMP

“R” stands for RETURN (or REPLACE with another “R”) lol!

PS: One of the biggest things California voters can do to help their country is to return CALIFORNIA to the LEGAL CITIZEN RESIDENTS! GET TO A NEWSOM RECALL BOOTH/STAND/TABLE — get a petition and make copies and circulate to your family and friends…….make new friends! Take it from a semi-hermit – YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Less than a month to go and this NEWSOM RECALL could be HISTORIC if California voters once again stand up and fight for their rights!

Socialist Left Democrats haven proven time and time again they donk’t give a damn about OUR RIGHTS!

OK, Lew has temporarily left the soapbox – lol later!


Sunday January 12th, 2020 (continued)…. OK are are Sunday’s results:





SANTA CRUZ 2 1st County representation! Welcome!


ORANGE* 1 Another first! Welcome!

TOTAL Sunday: 23

Weekends since Nov 17th: 506

*Another first ORANGE COUNTY! WELCOME! Here’s something interesting, the signer advised there was a tremendous outpouring of people signing in Orange County! Recall Orange County was one of the eight counties on the OAN report about officials refusing to process petition receipts.

Certainly if that information is correct (county election officials refusing to perform their duty and process a legitimate Secretary of State approved recall petition because they personally support Gavin Newsom), everyone involved should be looking for new employment because such “deep state activity” has harmed the citizens of this state long enough and should be dealt with immediately and harshly.

Such wannabe “social activists” are destroying our state (country as well) with their spoiled child routines of intolerance and “offense” to anything they don’t personally approve and then wrongfully use government authority and power for their anti-American Socialist/Left obstructionism.

I still can’t believe the State Water Board reported Merced River water license violations occurred in Sutter and Stanislaus counties, rather than Tuolumne and Mariposa. Don’t these water experts know the Merced River starts in Yosemite meanders down to the valley, and joins the San Joaquin in route to the ocean? (Also extremely curious is the fact the responsible party attempting to violate license restrictions had a Delft University Netherlands connection, as well as being a 20 year board director with the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION, and the 3 month new Division of Water Rights employee who was assigned to work with this orchestrating license violator/CSDA director, was also European educated. Ahhh, probably just a coincidence. lol

Anyway, hearing from a well informed resident from that area was like hearing encouraging information of massive resistance from deep within what has been touted as a Socialist/Left enemy territory. (Or just limited Newsom support, but in critical “bottle neck” areas of government where they could inflict the most disruption?)

Walk with me here…..if Orange County was indeed primarily pro-Gavin Newsom, what petition receipts would there be to ignore in the first place? In other words, if the majoriy of citizen’s of Orange County are satisfied with Newsom why would they sign a petition to recall him? However, if, as was reported to me from someone who lives there and saw it first hand – there was indeed a tremendous response to the recall Newsom petition, wouldn’t that be a motive for “cupcake activists” to pitch fits and tantrums while crying they refuse to perform their jobs because they support Newsom and his Socialist/Left agenda that is destroying our state?

Start Sunday with the correct count!
Unfortunately, FAKE online petitions hurt the legitimate recall of Newsom

Sorry…..need to stop for now. later 2140


SUNDAY, JANUARY 12th, 2020

Personally I believe this video to be a perfect example of what was going on with a number of high ranking Socialist/Left Democrats padding their prospective “after government service” retirements. (No doubt the same story as repeated itself on the other side as well but Democrats seem to have mastered the activity.) The environment at the time was was perfect for such “high and mighty LOWLIFES” and those involved with Ukraine were likely professional scammers long before that. Take a look at the “CLINTON CASH” scandal – those two were up to their eyeballs in dubious dealings since Whitewater in their home state of Arkansas.

Listen to this above nonsense and realize what was actually going on behind the scene regarding billions of Ukrainian dollars being laundered and funneled to wrongfully acting partners like Biden’s son Hunter as an energy consultant/director with virtually no experience to justify the outrageous salary and perks provided. Was the “salary” simply a way to insure VP Binden’s cooperation in the totality of this money laundering scam? Look how long it is taking to simply find the truth regarding HRC’s “missing emails”.


OK, here is the report:

25 signatures from the following counties….picked up a new one! Shasta! Welcome.










Thank you all so much!

Even though not too many sign this early – a lot come back later
Before the giant burning ball was up
Ooops! 458 + 25 = 483! (When things get busy I update the tally later, must have done one twice by accident…..I’ll reset to 483 tomorrow morning to make it legit! lol – ok, so 483 + 17 = 500, right? lol 17+ tomorrow to break 500?


GUESS WHO ERASED THE DATE THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HERE? <yup> I’m sure there’s a way to recover it – maybe, I’m too tired to mess with it now….Friday? Before that? Crap. One of the downsides I guess to using this page format. whatever. …..<below is older ….. not a post… update?….whatever. later.

Well, one of the two Secretary of State approved Newsom Recall Petition efforts has failed – the one in San Diego. (Still find it disgusting that a search online for NEWSOM RECALL usually produced more “fake recalls” than information on the two legitimate ones. Pretty difficult challenge when media is so clearly pro-left.)

Will the dropping of the San Diego petition be helpful to the ERIN CRUZ RANAF.ORG NEWSOM RECALL PETITION that I have been supporting at the 59×132 Newsom Recall Shack? Who knows? Sure do hope so.

As stated before, the RECALL OF GAVIN NEWSOM as our California Governor is something I believe is a correct response to ANY POLITICIAN who so arrogantly ignores the vote of the people in favor of their own personal opinion – regardless of the good intentions that particular voter override may have claimed.

“Why run elections at all?” will likely be a Socialist/Left Democrat talking point or PROPOSITION FOR APPROVAL very soon, because with their (fabricated) evidence of overwhelming public support for Newsom’s Socialist/Left policies being so obvious – why waste public resources that could be used for climate change or important Left social justice efforts?  Why have any elections that only reaffirm what everybody knows is the obvious majority support for the Socialist/Left agenda in California?    Sure, that’s what they’d like everyone to believe…..elections are no longer necessary in the Socialist Left Democrat Peoples Republic of Califusion.


Seems pretty apparent (based on the many investigations and news reports) that the State of California (as with most democrat strongholds) has a serious problem with voter fraud.   It was obvious going into this recall business that a governor who was elected into office through benefit of voter fraud by garnering higher numbers in apparent support would likewise have a “built in protection from recall” with that higher election percentage since the percentage for recall success is based on the percentage of the total votes cast in the last election enthroning Newsom.  In other words, rampant state election fraud dictates any recall would be even more of an uphill challenge than it already was.  So it is with “entrenched” politics yeah?

Wonder if the DMV will again change my party preference to Democrat like they did last time I renewed my drivers license? Motor Voter surely helped to get Newsom in, and obviously assists in keeping him there!

It is what it is and will not change unless “THE PEOPLE” demand such change.   If this is what the majority of legal California citizens want, so be it, we either adjust or leave.   Apparently 700,000 plus have already decided to leave with many more considering such abandonment of their former “home state”.  Perhaps I too will resume my own property search elsewhere after this recall effort?   No hard feelings, just the realization I do not want to reside where not welcomed even if it was my home state of sixty something years. Things change right?

I am so blessed because whether I stay or leave I can modify my “later life style” to accommodate immediate needs and still survive fairly comfortably.   


Please recall it wasn’t too long ago that many influential and well known “talking heads” from political, entertainment, and business related worlds assured voters Donald Trump would never be president.  


Remember all those professional polling organizations?  Same thing – Trump could NEVER BE PRESIDENT.  Nancy Pelosi (Gavin Newsom’s Auntie) said we could take her statement “to the bank” (Was Pelosi referring to one of those DNC banks like former VP Binden and Son utilized when pilfering billions from the people of Ukraine through the corrupt Burisma energy company?)  “Recall” some of those folks even promised to leave the United States of America if there was indeed a Trump Presidency.   Well, he’s president and those promising to leave stayed in this great country never-the-less.  Wonder why? Did they not mean what they said? Did they change their minds about Trump? Maybe it was simply “political theater” in an attempt to emotionally connect with people and they never seriously considered leaving? Who knows?

Everyone is entitled to believe, and vote, as they wish (at least for now), but the way I see it is simply this:

a person either believes in (FILL IN BLANK) and is

committed to working for, achieving, and/or protecting

(FILL IN BLANK) – or not.

I believe Gavin Newsom is a poor governor and should be removed so I will stand by that opinion and continue to collect petition signatures up until the legal state deadline despite those who guarantee the recall will not be successful and anyone supporting it is wasting time. 

OK, my time to waste. 

Who knows?  The 2016 chant of “Never Trump” was certainly incorrect.  Sure, the way in which NEWSOM STRONG counties are refusing to process petitions is disconcerting, but such outrages always take time to correct.  If the report is factual sure sounds like some county employees should be looking for new work if failing to perform official duties.  (That “deep state” stuff again?)  Look at Hillary Clinton and her infamous missing emails.  Not over by a long shot and we’re still learning more thanks to efforts of groups like JUDICIAL WATCH. 

Besides, (and this is the most important aspect) as above,

why should an adversary’s prediction of failure negate or dismiss a legitimate and sincere opinion or belief that Newsom has betrayed the legal California voting citizens and should be removed?

See you this weekend!

My best to you and yours, Lew



YES Rich you are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT (was hoping you were) – it is indeed permissible for me to fill out the petition for recall with exception of the signature/mark portion of the petition. I was aware family members and recognized service providers could do such, but the individual circulating the petition? I just wasn’t sure and didn’t want to accidentally invalidate your or anyone else’s vote. But like I promised – I checked into the matter.

Sorry for my ignorance and thank you for your understanding that my only hesitation was the concern about your vote counting with all the others. Heck, when I first started this I was awake all night wondering if my entry of xx/xx/2019 would be thrown out when the example showed xx/xx/19! (Despite your understanding and great job I was never-the-less embarrassed and deeply sorry for the inconvenience – which, thanks to you, will not occur again.)

So, with this new information in mind, if any of you viewers require some assistance in filling out the petition, please stop by 59×132 and I will be more than happy to assist up to the point of your signature/mark. As stated when I started volunteering for this recall work, I’ve never done this before and although I read instructions online (along with other sources) I never specifically saw where the circulator could fill out the form. (Requirements can also vary between states.)

Along the same lines (special situations), I can appreciate the fact many of you on the weekends are traveling in big rigs, large truck-trailer recreational units, and/or atypical trailer configurations (saw the longest trailer unit for the first time in real life last weekend – absolutely wild – saw them on TV but not passing by in reality…whoa- can only imagine the savings), or just don’t care for “detours” regardless of how minimal (although per above not always easy to accomplish), so, if you would like to sign and could pull over safely for a few minutes (say while checking load, tires or something on your rig) all I need is some affirmative notice of interest and I will come to you with the clipboard, petition, and pen in hand.

(That’s one thing I have not participated in with this recall stuff, I don’t wave at folks to come in and sign, or whistle, yell, “stand on my head to make folks sign” etc. lol as the whole concept was if you’re interested you will stop and let me know. Often when approaching a vehicle that has stopped I am greeted with some variation of “where do I sign – I’ve been looking for you”. lol However, if a rig is across the highway I can’t be playing a live version of “FROGGER” and going back and forth across a highway to see if someone wants to sign! lol



(I just fill in county name on petition – think I’m up to 16 or 17 different counties now… picked up San Luis Obispo and….???? need to check)

Doesn’t take long but just remember, although the GOVERNOR can do whatever he wants, WE MUST WRITE BETWEEN THE LINES OR “THEY” CAN INVALIDATE YOUR VOTE! So, try to write small and leave enough room for:


Print name as on ballot material then street number and name (123 Elm),


Signature, City and zip code.……….YOU’RE DONE!

My best to your and yours, Lew


Tuesday, January 7th, 2020….1108hrs My deliberation has concluded, I will report.


This issue was brought up last weekend when someone suggested I contact the Lake Don Pedro Baptist Church to advertise the NEWSOM RECALL SHACK at the intersection of HWY59 x HWY132 in La Grange, CA.  

Let me preface the following blah, blah, blah with this: 

How the leader of any church governs, regulates, shepherds, “flocks”, whatever, their followers is his/her and their congregation’s business (unless of course it truly is Anti-American and advocates violation of law, destruction of property, and attacks upon our citizens.) 

I was only trying to get the word out for those who might be interested and was quite surprised at the unequivocal answer.

So, NO!  I did not intentionally ignore the local Baptist Church regarding my efforts to obtain NEWSOM RECALL PETITION SIGNATURES.  I contacted the Church through its website by email very early Sunday morning before leaving for the intersection with the request of a simple notification to attendees of the opportunity.   I advised the request was “in the blind” (would not be able to receive any immediate response) as I would be out there when message likely received. I waited a few days and with no response I called and spoke with the church representative who answered the telephone.  I explained the situation and she advised emails had not been checked yet (thank heavens this was not some religious emergency where immediate grief counseling or such was required by a member of the congregation yeah?) but she assured me the Pastor would receive the message.  Again, no response, so I tried calling again on Friday December 13th, 2019 at 1018hrs, this time connecting with Pastor Hans.

Surprisingly, the Pastor seemed unsure if he had received my email.  I explained that I was operating a petition signing “shack” at the intersection because I did not want to contact people directly (I don’t like unsolicited emails, telephone calls, visits, etc. and did not want to do the same to others) and wondered if he could simply, as a public service announcement to his congregation, announce the opportunity to sign a recall Gavin Newsom petition was now available locally.  I told him one of the most common statements by signers was they could not locate a convenient location, or, when they did see one and returned after completing the main reason for their current trip,  only found the “station” had moved elsewhere.

Unfortunately, and to my utter surprise, the pastor refused to make such an announcement stating he did not want to become involved in such political matters.  This was quite confusing since I know for a fact political issues have been addressed by that Church in the past (including local recall efforts) with even the Pastor himself moderating an LDPCSD candidates night at the high school.   Even the Church’s long time bookkeeper applied for, and was appointed to the LDPCSD Board of Directors, which ironically, I truly believe – and documents will support – has been one of the most corrupt special interest boards in the history of this CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT—they even refused to simply request a legitimate official California State Water Board Place of Use Map which governed their activities!

That board essentially SOLD OUR WATER DISTRICT to Pete Kampa (and his Kampa Community Solutions, LLC)….

(a 20 year former rogue employee between 1994-1997 who quickly left after being caught orchestrating LAFCO ANNEXATIONS in Tuolumne and Mariposa into our district without board authority or direction)

….. who  was unethically returned in 2014 to complete his LAFCO ANNEXATION plans with state and federal grant funds intended for drought relief of existing customers, but was actually used to develop very expensive groundwater wells needed to provide water service outside the water license which serves the subdivision and golf course.  The district has used this water license since 1980 formation. 

Anyway, for a church whose leader states he doesn’t want to become involved in politics, well, that ship seems to have sailed in an opposite direction many years ago.  

Still it is not really my business, or is it? 

Perhaps the pastor has an understanding with his followers that he will unilaterally make such political related decisions so as not to “bother attendees” with such decisions of whether or not they might be interested in signing a California Secretary of State approved recall petition for Governor Gavin Newsom?

Maybe everyone who attends that church accepts and supports the Pastor’s decision to “not inform” of such local civic opportunities? (Wonder what else is concealed?)

Or does that religious leader’s refusal indicate he knows for a fact there is not one single conservative leaning minded person who attends HIS church?   (Versus a church of GOD)  BUT WAIT!  That cannot be true since the individual who spoke to me last Sunday signed the petition and was very thankful for the opportunity even being there!

Could there be one or two other individuals at that church who might be interested in signing the petition but are unaware of the opportunity in their own community?

Your guess is as good as mine – but see how easy it can be for good people to be intentionally left out and uninformed about issues and opportunities in their own home state?   

My best to you and yours, Lew



Yes, the following JUDICIAL WATCH VIDEO is almost an hour…..but a great “refresher”. Listen while fixing dinner, doing laundry, or just relaxing. It is amazing how much we forget when constantly bombarded with NEW ANTI-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES by Socialist/Left Democrat government officials…..(and other “trusted organizations” we might automatically assume are looking out for our best interests – when perhaps they are not! I’m wrestling with whether to report on such a local issue right now. Wondering if reporting on it would be a good thing or not. I’m leaning towards….yes, the truth is always the best policy regardless of how it is received by those who do not want to hear and attempt to suppress.)

ANYWAY, this video is an excellent RECAP of some past and current events which document how the Socialist/Left Democrats have wrongfully been using the power and authority of the US government (public resources) to push their ANTI-AMERICAN AGENDA, but even more importantly, concealing from the American public just how horribly wrong it all is!



<YAWN> Much better. Wanted to mention being quite pleased to also hear from several folks about how they felt more comfortable stopping by a recall “station” where it was not so crowded or confined as in larger communities, but rather, out in the open with good visibility.

Yup, like a major foothill highway intersection in clear view of a steady stream of passing vehicles! NOTE: For you folks headed somewhere on the weekend with a big rig or large trailer who don’t want/or can’t, make the small detour, if you stop near the intersection I can usually go to you if not busy with other signers. I understand turning around or leaving your equipment is not an option. It’s actually pretty quick, PRINT name as it appears in your ballot materials, number and street name (123 Elm), signature, city and zip and you’re on your way again. OF COURSE, California politicians do what they want, but WE MUST WRITE BETWEEN THE LINES! lol)

As I said, personally I am not comfortable going into congested areas to attend controversial activities in a time when the Socialist/Left Democrats believe their “social justice scam” permits abandonment of civility and intentional violation of law and the rights of other citizens. (ie, If any of these sensitive cupcakes become offended by legitimate skepticism or outright disbelief in man’s responsibility for “climate change” violence and destruction of property is perfectly acceptable to stop such contrary opinions from being heard in their perverted version of A SOCIALLY JUST AMERICA. Seriously, does that sound like the America you want to live in? Where free speech/opinion is abolished through wrongful street enforcement by radical Left thugs who are incapable of hearing opposing views because it upsets them so much? Good grief.

Rights of citizens? Can’t help but think about equal protection under the law as well. What about honest local government officials? Look what property owners here in Lake Don Pedro have needlessly experienced for decades. (Obviously very unpleasant stories on both sides of the water license place of use equation – but the fundamental failure was to simply obey the clear restrictions on Merced River water place of use.)

How could a Mariposa County 1987 detailed Sphere of Influence Study completely overlook even one word about the obviously known water restrictions contained in water license 11395 held by the Merced Irrigation District while actively planning where to extend water service that the LDPCSD could not legally furnish? Smells like those things that live in water…,.oh yeah, fishy.

Was that the plan all along? Create a “sham of a California Special District” only to get access to water license 11395 through the entitled subdivision and then just expand boundaries? Sure might explain why the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approval was not obeyed or why a fabricated representation existed in our LDPCSD files. Might also explain why the original 1980 LDPCSD water service boundary map has been absent since the field survey (which still exists) was completed.

When caught wrongfully expanding the district’s boundaries did these unethical “movers and shakers” essentially institute an expensive subsidized groundwater substitution program (circumventing license) and put that substantial escalating expense on the financial backs of unsuspecting innocent property owners in the subdivision for perpetuity? Absolutely diabolical – and what a betrayal to property ownership on multiple levels. Your tax dollars and assessments at work?

I have been trying to understand this mess for over 10 years now (unfortunately think I DO UNDERSTAND) but such quest is made even more difficult when both the LDPCSD and County Planning/LAFCO refuse to honor legitimate requests for public information. (Add to that law enforcement, grand juries, complaints to State DOJ, Governor, etc.)

Heck, haven’t been able to view pertinent LAFCO records on the county website for over a year. How can the LDPCSD ignore my request for the most important piece of evidence concerning this whole FOOTHILL WATER EMPIRE SCAM operating for decades…. which is the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT SHAPE FILE MAPS provided by MID which Pete Kampa said proved the water license place of use had been changed in 1993. I want to see for myself how this 20 year trained CSDA director was mistaken about the information.

What was the basis for the use of those millions of dollars in public funds?

Yup, 40 years of fraud, community turmoil and expensive subsidized groundwater substitution used to circumvent the water license restrictions to benefit COUNTY LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTIES brought into the LDPCSD (Lake Don Pedro Community Services District – a California Special District) 20 years ago by a former rogue employee.

A former rogue employee unethically returned in 2014 as GM/Treasurer and permitted access to over one million in cash without even a simple background check! Money used to misrepresent the district to State and Federal departments and agencies in order to obtain grant money intended for drought relief for legal customers which was actually used to develop an alternate groundwater supply for his OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE annexations – because they could not develop without such.

Yes California has certainly gone Socialist/Left. Gosh, why did information such as this rogue GM/Treasurer’s prior DELFT UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE in Europe suddenly disappear from the internet? Why was the original investigator (who performed an outstanding factual investigation up to that point) transferred to another division? Why was investigation delayed so long until another European educated 3 month new State Water Board Division of Water Rights “new employee” was given an investigation involving a situation intentionally misrepresented to the public for 40 years? A new employee who then in obvious cooperation with the CSD rogue GM/Treasurer, attempted case closure three different times with only more false information provided by the GM/Treasurer?

What about the arson of our LDPCSD administration office during investigation of outside POU water service?

What about the attempted replacement of that 40 year old legitimate water license 11395 Place of Use map in State Water Board files with that rogue GM’s FAKE DIGITIZED MAP which wrongfully expanded boundaries? Oh yeah, that fake map was also produced by a CSDA affiliate member. Auditors, insurance, everything controlled through such state lobbying organizations.

A sitting California Special District Association board director using the authority and power of that organization to exploit a California Special District and its customers. There are so many more questions.)

Consider: Not only was the rogue employee brought back to finish his annexation plan by providing the necessary groundwater with public funds for the development of private property interests….

(including a 900 acre residential subdivision on the shores of Lake McClure which was either (1) concealed from the public and LDPCSD customers for 20 years by LAFCO and the LDPCSD, or, (2) annexation paperwork was only recently changed (2014) to appear as though annexed in 1995 (there were many past attempts to annex that were never completed.) Also, remember the LAFCO meeting I was prohibited from attending as a sitting board director where representatives of the LDPCSD and LAFCO officials agreed to change long established LDPCSD water service map boundaries? Gosh, isn’t that called a clue when one director who had studied the issue was prevented from attending? This 2014 boundary change was necessary so the groundwater scam could be put to actual use.)

…… but he came back with his own KAMPA COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS, llc, management company catering to CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS like the LDPCSD, while also a sitting 20 year influential board director on the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (CSDA). Needless to say, the CSDA and its affiliate members have been extremely influential and helpful in this outrageous betrayal of legal Merced River water customers in the subdivision.

All to be quietly paid for by the thousands of MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS (MR WECs) of the LDP subdivision who did not require such expensive groundwater for their legal service under the water license. And now we must consume water treated for arsenic and other contaminants not found in our quality lake water, just so it can be blended and sold outside the Place of Use for Merced River water to LAFCO annexed properties.

Sorry, didn’t know this was going to happen. Must have been the comment about citizen rights in California or something.

So, the above is how the LDPCSD used the proceeds from the last PROP 218 rate and fee increase (million dollars provided to Pete Kampa), and now they want to raise rates and fees again – without even acknowledging how they mismanaged the last increase to the special interests of private land developers with annexed land. Where is the guarantee they won’t do exactly the same thing again? Personally, without such public acknowledgement by these local leaders who were responsible for this nightmare and a guarantee of no further misuse of funds I will vote against any rate and fee increase. They are irresponsible.

Yes indeed, I repeat myself – but the loss of our rights and how it occurs is worth repeating until corrected.

My best to you and yours, Lew



59X132 UPDATE-

Start Sunday with Saturday’s total thus far from November 17th 2019 (Primarily weekends with only two “snagged” when I spent two hours in the fog after going to the post office. Figured what the heck, was in La Grangeanyway might as well try. Still wondering what the difference might be during the week with decent weather …..if any.







TRIP FOURS. Told folks what their number was when I had a chance – who knows? Maybe a lucky number? Hummm, drawings based on entered numbers….lol Since some folks asked whether I was being paid, thought the intro to the “increasing number” was appropriate. I can not always contribute money to such efforts so I donate time. (Which is becoming more and more valuable as I age.)
Nice even increase

What a great response! Thank you all for stopping by and please feel free to stop by anytime….(no, not as a “petition signing decoy vehicle” – although some of you today also observed/experienced that common occurance and can testify as to its validity) especially so due to our conversations being interrupted ….but for a great cause of course yeah? … more concerned folks stopping by to sign! Seriously, I enjoyed all these exchanges especially when they morphed into a “group conversation”….almost like a political group therapy! lol Thank you all.

I learn something every time and one of the most repetitive, and comforting lesson is simply this: I am not alone. You are not alone. WE are not alone. With all our beautiful diversity we are never-the-less American citizens with Constitutional rights that are being restricted and threatened with abolishment by a Socialist-Left-Democrat agenda to completely change the United States of America.

Anyway, how could a 30 signature day get any better?

35 from another local (please stop by again, couldn’t find your phone number – OK to use your name while complimenting you for a splendid job?) who collected his own! Absolutely fantastic!

Just think if those that could—would, during the next 4 weeks, collect as many signatures as possible from their friends, family and other concerned patriots who were complete strangers until they met at a NEWSOM RECALL table, booth, shack, organization, club, church, … whatever!

We are not alone and will certainly be heard quite clearly in 2020. Later,

My best to you and yours, Lew


  1. WOW!  
  2. I thank you all VERY MUCH, but more importantly…..
  4. Want to play a game?

47 signatures today @ “59×132”! 

Here’s the break down: (every single one appreciated – keep them coming!)

STANISLAUS                       16 whoa!

MERCED                             8

TUOLUMNE                       8

MARIPOSA                         7


ALAMEDA                           1 GOOD JOB!

CALAVARAS                        1

TOTAL                                 47 ! Just beautiful

How about a MULTI COUNTY RECALL PETITION CONTEST?  Wait!  Hear me out first – because this is rather humorous – in a way, at least I think so, but I crack myself up all the time anyway.   Hee hee hee (old school lol)…..this contest could be absolutely wild for the NEXT 5 WEEKS…. (February 6th I believe is the last day in collecting signatures)  ESPECIALLY if successful in dramatically increasing the RECALL PETITION response from voters!

Concept could be utilized in various ways….contest between districts, cities, service organizations, churches, etc. Add a little fun to something you believe in anyway…..challenging others to keep up with YOUR PACE!

  ……..”OK, Lew, appreciate the concept that a little fun makes any job easier, but why would this “petition game” be so funny?  ……Because I read about the concept in Gavin Newsom’s 2003 book CITIZENVILLE!   I kid you not!  

Here’s the gist of it: Newsom was advocating that government garner free work by citizens through making a particular activity fun and/or competitive with others who were also supportive of the activity, program, service, WHATEVER!    He stressed how some people will perform a tremendous amount of excellent work absolutely free (or even at great cost personally) if they were devoted to the cause or goal at hand. 

Basically, cities were availing themselves to such free volunteered citizen labor and would reap the benefits from highly successful results in the solving of long term city problems by simply making the corrective action, reconfiguration, new method, …whatever improvement …… fun and competitive.  [Yes indeed, the obvious can sometimes be quite elusive in the “real world”.] Newsom  used the concept as mayor in San Francisco as did other major cities sporting problems that could not be solved up until implementation of the new approach. Gosh, can’t help but wonder how many were Democrat controlled?  

See the absolute irony here?   The exquisite beauty of it? Using Newsom’s own advocacy to remove him from the position of Governor …..due to his own arrogant and consistent betrayal of the legal taxpaying California citizen!  Basically, ….. a thanks for the idea of solving our Gavin Newsom problem in California Mr. Newsom! Who knows?  There might be a few spin off books coming out down the road?   Like….”HOW TO REMOVE YOURSELF AS CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR” BY GAVIN “RECALLED” NEWSOM? “Want to play a game?” by Gavin News….. <sorry, I’m beat>

Yup, I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself reading his book there at the intersection of 59×132 under the red flashing traffic light while leaning against a 16’ utility trailer I converted into a NEWSOM RECALL SHACK so I could collect my own signatures after having already been misled with some “online recalls” that do not actually count in legally removing him as governor.   Pretty diabolical concept, yeah?  (LAME: “Democrats cheat and lose, hard habit can’t quit it” – lol)

Wonder how many of these “fake petitions” are Socialist/Left Democrat created and funded so voters “only think” they signed a real petition and therefore – no need to go to the time and trouble of signing a physical one at a legitimate RANAF (Reforming America Now Action Fund) petition table, booth, stand, whatever!   (Originally the trailer configuration was designed and planned to be used in searching for a new home/land in Nevada – then I thought …. why am I leaving my property of 30 years backbreaking work because of others who have hi-jacked and misled our state for their Socialist Left agenda of completely changing AMERICA?) 

So how could WE (California citizens who want such treachery removed from leadership positions in our state government) use that CITIZENVILLE information for our devoted cause in removing Newsom as Governor?  (Not to mention the long line of other leftist politicians following his lead.)

A GAME. A CONTEST. A COMPETITION of “will and dedication”. Which county can out-do another in the most signatures on petitions to RECALL GAVIN NEWSOM! (Referencing 59×132…because once again (I repeat myself you know) however, this concept could be utilized in a multitude of ways – fun, competition, etc. by various organizations.)

I saw a bus pass by today and I thought….too bad they couldn’t stop for a short break and those interested could sign…….. lol Other enterprising supporters might consider setting up a particular “Newsom Recall Tour” for folks that were going to make the trip anyway.

If nothing else….continue to tell your friends and family, ….. take a pleasant weekend foothill drive up to La Grange and put Gavin’s concept to a practical and beneficial use in SAVING THE CURRENT CALIFUSION!

Obviously, today, SATURDAY, JANUARY 4th, 2020…….STANISLAUS COUNTY took honors with16 SIGNATURES! Nope, no pay. No reward – other than the most important reward a citizen could possibly hope to attain…. taking affirmative action in protecting their home state from further destruction!

(Yes, I know, there should be some sort of handicapping system for the long distance signers….….(Alameda has done well!) but hey, I’m exhausted …. For now, let’s just do the best we can in collecting the maximum numbers we can until February 6th…. I’ll make a point of reporting them as soon as possible, like I did tonight.  Oh yeah, and remember….YOU can always collect your own signatures as well if you want (friends, family, church, nudest colonies – gun clubs (likely already done! lol) , bowling, WHATEVER!   I have to wrap this up – fading quickly. Want further information? Here two of my trusted sources: (Reforming America Now Action Fund)


OAN (one America news television network)

Anyway, just an idea, but regardless…..


Not only were the results today fantastic, but it sure makes the time go by faster too!  Thanks for the honk and waves too!  (Sometimes I miss wave, thumbs up signals and such due to light reflection, tinted windows, etc., but I appreciate it all regardless of the occasional miss!)

My best to you and yours, Lew

OH…couple of photos:

TOMORROW WE WILL START OFF WITH 428 (since Nov 17th doing weekends)

January 3rd, 2020: Late start, no big surprise yeah? Let’s see … recent bummer, severely damaged my digital recorder in a tripod accident. (Learned note to self: never engage in other activities involving substantial movement while leashed to LAME equipment through cabling… opening a slider to toss a tennis ball outside for your canine companion.)

Life can be so weird sometimes. Only a day or so earlier, while working with it, I was contemplating about how much enjoyment these LAME PROJECTS have provided for “self expression” and how that little DR-40 recorder was what enabled the activity. [Highly recommended for others who might want to try such activity!] I remembered reading a bunch of customer review’s prior to purchase and how one customer commented about an accident damaging his and the cost of a replacement did not bother him in the least. Well, ditto my friend. (Under $200)

I’ve been down similar roads before with electronic equipment. No doubt it could be easily repaired (using the correct tools which I do not possess) but the repair cost (time involved in disassembly and accessing the board to be repaired – diagnostics of other components potentially damaged upon impact, etc) would also go a long way towards purchasing a brand new unit. Hello Amazon….it’s me again. lol

Yup, even with a 12′ extension cord, a slight tug on the cable to the recorder caused the tripod to fall….and where did it land? Directly on the connected headphone jack. Once I determined that everything worked except the headphone jack (unit would record, store, download, upload, playback, etc.) I realized the most important features of the unit were worthless. Humm, a new one was already ordered, what did I have to lose? Cracked the case open and sure enough two small soldering points on the plug recepticle had broken off the circuit board.

The unit is worthless for primary purpose of dubbing without a playback through headphones (there is a small speaker but quality and volume are deficient). Could still be used for different channel recording or as a general back up recorder…..just have to download to computer to hear it! lol Essentially all the good stuff is useless without headphones. Yes, tried to solder back on without success …could be a number of reasons it didn’t work, plug unit itself had been slightly twisted out of shape…internal connections damaged requiring a new plug? Damage to that specific area of board due to excess leverage by the plug pin on impact? Other metal points in wrong configuration? Poor soldering by a dumb ass? lol Although the “why not” attempted repair failed, everything else apparently still works.

Wonder if the speaker could be reconfigured into a headphone jack? Or are they powered differently? Heck I wouldn’t care if it was a Frankenstein recorder with extra wires hanging out and duct taped to the case if it would enable a functioning external headset plug! lol Yes, I’m a packrat too! If there’s a potential future use I keep it. Guess it will go into the “maybe someday” pile of old equipment and components? Reminds me…..have an interesting/humorous story about AutoCad R11 and 386 computers for some other time. That was a SUCCESS STORY which took a tremendous about of time, research, and effort, yet little cash to finally achieve!

Anyway…such is life. The slightly more expensive “newer model” is in route as I type. Likely a blessing in disguise – I could no longer read the operating decals on the different switches and controls as they had worn off months ago. Who knows, maybe this will encourage a new and more efficient way for producing LAME PROJECTS?

You see, LAME is an acronym for…….



My best to you and yours, Lew
