Andy Caldwell’s California is No Longer the Golden State

There is no climate emergency, there is no systemic racism in America, and the CCP virus is nowhere near as damaging as the supposed “solutions” (severe lockdowns, forced injection mandates, etc.). California does not need to abandon conventional forms of energy, but they are, just as they are abandoning constitutional freedoms in order to promote Critical Race Theory and control its citizenry against a poorly understood pandemic.

The remedies prescribed for these issues by California Governor Newsom and his allies in the press are extremely damaging and totally unnecessary.

Andy Caldwell heads a non-profit Coalition of Labor, Agriculture, and Business (COLAB) which acts as both a government watchdog and promoter of these sectors in Santa Barbara County, California. His monthly newsletter, COLAB MAGAZINE, is the source of much of this article.

Caldwell has a daily talk radio show, The Andy Caldwell Show, which broadcasts on AM 1440, KUHL, Santa Maria, and AM 1290, Santa Barbara, News-Press Radio. His program covers the entire central coast of California, and we have both been proud to appear as guests on the show. As a strong conservative in a very liberal county, Caldwell came close to winning the district’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2020 election. 

In Caldwell’s magazine, he outlines the growing problems of his once wealthy and beautiful state. They used to call it The Golden State, but no more. Its troubles mount daily with a loss of basic sanitation in cities and energy across its land. Yet, its citizens continue to elect a monolithic liberal government led by Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, regardless of his complete ineptitude to manage a once great economy. On September 14, 2021, Newsom fought off a recall election because the state fears a conservative republican government more than the continued degradation of their once wonderful state.

In one of his newsletters, Caldwell quoted German-American theologian Paul Tilloch who asked, “is it a sign of patriotism or of confidence in one’s people, its institutions and its way of life, to be silent when the foundations are shaking? Is the expression of optimism more important than the expression of truth?”

The state of California is tumbling over three critical issues. 

  • First, the human-caused climate change fraud promoting the end of life as we know it if will continue to burn fossil fuels and emit life-giving carbon dioxide, the only reason mankind can inhabit Earth. 
  • Second, the Critical Race Theory that is turning citizen against citizen as either oppressed or oppressors.
  • Third, the Covid Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus that has disrupted all normal life and many freedoms.

The threat presented by each of these to our social-economic and body politic are being grossly exaggerated for nefarious reasons by the liberal establishment throughout California, a nearly monolithic political state.  

In his Vol 9 Issue 8 newsletter, Caldwell says America is mortally threatened by these issues due to the “death of critical thinking skills, abandoned historical values, our compromised institutions of church and state, and an atrophied spirit of faith and freedom.”

Janet Levy writing in American Thinker, has outlined how the Marxist revolution in America has manipulated the nation’s culture and especially in sinking California. It is pitifully simple and effective on a population that has little critical thinking. 

1- remove principled leadership
2 – encourage the questioning of values and convictions of America
3 – present a revision of history
4 – cloud the distinction between right and wrong
5 – extoll consensus and collectivism while declaring individualism dangerous
6 – focus on emotions over facts
7 – foster anxiety, confusion, and social turbulence
8 – conceal the ultimate agenda
9 – use trusted individuals to enhance credibility if they can be conned
10 – use informants to spy on those who do not comply
11 – reward compliance and punish dissent
12 – win public trust by manufacturing chaos

Canadian rap star Tom MacDonald sums up the strategy well here.

This has been going on in California for decades, and the state has been in a downward spiral ever since. In light of it all, it should be surprising, but, sadly, is not, that Newsom held on to the Governorship in the recall election of September 14. A huge fortune came in from liberal interests all across the country to support his efforts to hang on.

In one of his newsletters prior to the recall, Caldwell outlined the details of the once, but no longer, great state in hopes of bringing more voters to their senses. He asked if citizens remembered:

1 – when the state had ample water supplies
2 – when the state had the best schools
3 – when the state had the most wealth
4 – when the state had the most beautiful parks, beaches, and downtowns
5 – when neighborhoods were generally safe to live in
6 – when the state had the best paying jobs
7 – when the state had affordable housing
8 – when gasoline was affordable
9 – when forest fires were under control
10 – when all businesses were considered essential
11 – when church attendance was promoted, and strip clubs were frowned upon

Deceptions of Government and Corporate Elite Threaten America

Deceptions of Government and Corporate Elite Threaten America

Today’s pervasive government and corporate corruption will result in more amorality among the public. When a country that is historically moral, tolerates leaders in the political and business worlds who are proven to be chronic liars, a previously honest general population begins to feel free to adopt deceptive practices as well, resulting in corruption becoming dominant in America…

As the Dismantling of America Continues… Judgment Is Coming, but for Whom?

The year is 2022, and you can be sure judgment is coming. The curse of deception is now judging all those who have spurned our God-given guidelines for holy living. The powers that be seem in their own eyes just and good, when in fact, they are wretched and oppressive. But a time of renewal may also be at hand because an ever-expanding army of righteous soldiers are returning to our roots…

Beyond the Fireworks & Bar-B-Ques… America’s Military Vets Take Note

No matter how much money and covert influence our enemies try to pump into America, there are millions of American veterans who once took an oath to protect and defend America that has no expiration date. You can push them so far, and eventually, you’ll reach the point where they push back. They’ve remained quietly on the sidelines, for now, observing and taking note of…

America Returns to the Days of King George

America Returns to the Days of King George

It seems the American people have not learned from their history. Rather we have reverted to a state of servitude similar to the colonies in 1776. I wonder if, when those 56 men pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in support of the Declaration of Independence, they ever conceived that not only would the American people return to a life of dependence, but that we would do so willingly…

The Most Patriotic and Accomplished President in Modern Times

The only president who – despite the most maligning, deceitful, and aggressive media against him 24/7/365 x 5 years – delivered what he promised the American people if elected. The least unemployed Americans in over 50 years. Made America’s energy, oil, and gas independent of oil cartels for the first time ever. In fact, he made the USA a premier exporter, helping make the price of petrol…

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – The outrage regarding the FDA and CDC approving and promoting the vaccines to our youngest is being heard from coast to coast.

Florida’s Gov Ron DeSantis & Lawmakers Bring 145 New Laws Into Effect July 1

It’s been noted that throughout the governorship of Ron DeSantis during the health crisis of COVID-19, thousands of Americans have relocated from all across the nation to reside in Florida because of the conservative God and Country values that DeSantis stands for. The Florida governor signed 269 bills in the year 2022, 11 of those measures were vetoed and 145 are new laws taking effect…

Why Roe v. Wade Will NOT Impact the Election

The media is trying very hard to turn the upcoming midterm elections into a referendum on abortion…A large segment of the left is once again losing its mind and proving to independent voters what independent voters were already figuring out – that the political left is led by a radicalized group of thugs who want to burn down our nation and make us live under an ultra-authoritarian communist tyranny…
