I am an Environmental Health and Safety Professional, as well as a science/technical writer for a variety of news and professional publications. I have been a citizen activist since 2009, and am one of the co-founders of the San Diego-based group, Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition.

At the end of January, Legal Insurrection reported that ultra-progressive Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón’s “reforms” were putting the region’s criminal justice system in “free fall.” For example, Gascón forced his prosecutors to read statements in court impugning the state’s “three strikes” law and ending specific penalties.

Last week, I reported that the recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom movement hit the 1.5 million signature milestone, which is the minimum to get a recall vote on the ballot. However, as many astute readers noted, the signatures will undergo microscopic inspection before officials approve them. So, the petitioners continue to gather signatures. They collected another 200,000.

See correction at bottom We have often written about the environmental impact that green energy policies have had, include the effects of wind energy technologies on bird populations and the quality of life in adjacent properties. A massive winter storm in Texas has frosted the wind turbines that are a crucial source of alternative energy, causing power outages and heating electricity prices.

Legal Insurrection readers will recall that in late January, the new administration implemented the requirement that all travelers into the United States be tested for COVID-19. Since then, there have been even more grand plans proposed. We covered the recent proposal to impose domestic travel restrictions, which seem to target the nearly-normally functioning state of Florida.

Ever since the Los Angeles Times published a toxic article connecting Recall Newsom petition signers to white supremacists and anti-vaxxers, I have been an ardent advocate for the effort to force a vote of the California governor. The last time I checked, the number of petition signers was 1.4 million. Recent reports indicate that the activists have gathered the required 1.5 million signatures necessary to get a recall vote on the ballot.
