Perhaps the most politically ambitious man to ever ply California politics is Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California. Where every small town has a village idiot we have this state idiot who apparently plans to ride to the Presidency of the United States on the Second Amendment using it as a surfboard to fame, wealth and power, thinking he has a winning argument.  In fairness we here offer the Wikipedia entry on Gavin:

“Gavin Christopher Newsom (born October 10, 1967) is an American politician, businessman and television personality who has served as the 49th Lieutenant Governor of California since 2011. He is notable for hosting a television show named after him in Current TV and for his guest appearances in HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher.

Newsom has been involved in controversial and high-profile relationships, including his former marriage to Fox News contributor Kimberly Guilfoyle and an infidelity scandal in 2007. His political career highlights include his advocacy for same-sex marriage and the legalization of cannabis in the United States.

Newsom studied at Redwood High School and graduated from Santa Clara University. After graduation, he co-founded businesses with family friend Gordon Getty, who was an investor. Newsom began his political career in 1996 when San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown appointed him to serve on the city’s Parking and Traffic Commission and as a member of the Board of Supervisors the following year. Newsom drew voter attention with his Care Not Cash program, which was designed to move homeless people into city-assisted care.

In 2003, he was elected as the 42nd Mayor of San Francisco, the city’s youngest in a hundred years. Newsom was re-elected in 2007 with 72 percent of the vote. He was elected Lieutenant Governor of California in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. In February 2015, Newsom announced he was opening a committee to run for Governor of California in 2018.”

Mr. Newsom is said to be the author of Proposition 63 which is officially summarized as:

*Requires individuals to pass a background check and obtain Department of Justice authorization to purchase ammunition.

*Prohibits possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines, and requires their disposal, as specified.

*Requires most ammunition sales to be made through licensed ammunition vendors and reported to (the) Department of Justice.

*Requires lost or stolen firearms and ammunition to be reported be reported to law enforcement.

*Prohibits persons convicted of stealing a firearm from possessing firearms.

*Establishes new procedures for enforcing laws prohibiting firearm possession.

*Requires Department of Justice to provide information about prohibited persons to federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

Not only is the measure unconstitutional, but it is deeply flawed.  As written you are not required to report the theft of a firearm or ammunition as both were not stolen together.  The measure is full of many small glitches of this kind, but it is conceptually idiotic and makes many private citizens criminals for no reason.  It is going to clog the courts, pack the jails and prisons with people that are only trying to protect themselves where an overworked, under-appreciated law-enforcement force cannot.

If you report a crime in California today a police officer or Sheriffs Deputy may show up in two days, spend 15 minutes with you, get an emergency call and leave two black streaks in your driveway as he hurries to a shootout-in-progress scene.  Mr. Newsom will turn that into a week and swamp the courts with honest citizens who will not know “What the Hell is going on here?”

What else can we expect from a man so stupid he cheated on one of America’s great beauties, Kimberly Guilfoyle, when he should have been thanking God every day that he was blessed with such a magnificent wife.  She was so deeply wounded by Gavin she has turned down four proposals for marriage and we can be sure they were not skanks.  A lifelong Catholic and serious person she may never marry and bring forth in an America where our more intelligent people are have far less children.

All legislation of this kind is meant to concentrate power in the hands of the elected ruling class, the same people that are universally corrupt at every level from school board to city and county halls, state legislatures, Congress and the White House.  The Founding Fathers knew the nature of men and did the best they could in our Constitution, but today scoundrels like Gavin Newsom are doing their best to rip it to pieces.  It California ballot Proposition 63 passes it will be one of the final nails in our coffin; one crafted by the California State Idiot, Gavin Newsom.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology. During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean's office. "You don't like the way we do things here?" was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion. After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover's books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962. While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series. For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800. Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson's PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70's. His "Timing Waves to Enter The Sea" article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual. "UFO's, The Eye and the Camera" documents his "Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed." It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically. Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook's secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of "The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings," by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method. On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD. When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90's to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work. The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the "II" machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the "star" economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves. Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, "The Stock Surfer" was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria.
