The former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell appeared on Hannity Monday to plead that Californian vote to recall Governor Gavin Newsom. Grenell is a current California resident himself. Therefore, he attended the Newsom rally in the state.

“One thing that is clear is that Gavin Newsom is scared,” Grenell told host Sean Hannity. “He has Joe Biden here today in long beach campaigning. They are paying people with stimulus checks. He is calling this the Republican recall. He is doing everything he can because they are scared.”

Yet, Grenell reported that many booed the president at the rally. As the president’s motorcade drove down Long Beach, California, many captured the boos on video.

“I think no matter what happens over the next couple of days, we have already won,” Grenell said. “We conservatives and we republicans in California have already won. We are putting to the vote of the people whether or not the governor is qualified.”

However, Sean Clegg, Newsom’s strategist feels differently. He reportedly told a crowd of journalists at the rally that there is “no scenario” where the governor loses. Fox News reporter Matt Finn tweeted Clegg’s quote Monday night.

Now, California voters will decide on Tuesday whether to recall current Governor Gavin Newsom. If he is recalled, conservative Larry Elder takes his place. Otherwise, Newsom will finish his term.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
