Following California’s recall election, Governor Gavin Newsom remains at his post and Larry Elder conceded the race. Over 5 million California voters, 63%, voted to not recall Newsom. But Elder is still recovering from all the names critics called him.

First, Erika Smith of the LA Times wrote “Larry Elder is the Black face of white supremacy.” Her article came out on August 20th. “You’ve been warned,” she wrote.

Next the President of the United States jumped on the trend. “The leading Republican running for governor (Larry Elder) is the closest thing to a Trump clone that I have ever seen,” President Biden said. Biden appeared at a Newsom Rally the day before the election.

Then on the day of the election, MSNBC Contributor Jason Johnson took it a step further on election day. He suggested that Elder wasn’t truly Black, but just in blackface.

“This race was right at the razor’s edge until about three weeks ago when it became less about a referendum on Gavin Newsom and more about a choice between Larry Elder, who’s basically Trumpism in blackface, versus Gavin Newsom who is at least a competent politician,” Johnson said Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Elder took the name-calling in stride. Instead, he seemed unbothered about his political future. “”We may have lost the battle, but we are going to win the war,” Elder said in his concession speech Tuesday. Later, on Wednesday, he tweeted “Only in America can a black person become President or a white supremacist.” However, he also included the foreboding hashtag: #WeveGotACountryToSave.

Elder also used the hashtag on Facebook. “Thank you for the love, California!” his post read. “#WeveGotAStateToSave #WeveGotACountryToSave.”

This was the sixth attempt to recall Newsom but only the first that came to an election. It cost California roughly $276 million to facilitate the recall election, according to state Assembly.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
