Actress Rose McGowan called out the Black Lives Matter movement during her event with California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder, arguing that people should stop labelling each other based on race and focus on their humanity instead.

"They want to hear that the more we micro label each other, the better we'll be," McGowan said during a Sunday press conference. "The reality is, today, I challenge this state, I challenge these voters, I challenge the media, to back up. Be human first, vote for humanity."

The comments came during a press conference the actress held with Elder, who leads the pack among candidates to become the next governor of California if current Gov. Gavin Newsom is removed from office in the state's recall election on Tuesday.

McGowan appeared alongside the Republican candidate after accusing Newsom's wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom of attempting to persuade her not to go public with her allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

"So this woman, I don’t know, some blonde lady name with the last name of the Newsom, cold-calls me, and was like, David Boies wants to know what it would take to make you happy,' McGowan said during an appearance on the Rubin Report.

McGowan declared at the event Sunday that she was no longer a Democrat. She also said that despite having some different policy views than Elder, she believed he was "the better candidate and the better man."

McGowan specifically took issue with the media and White critics disagreeing with his message as a Black man simply because he disagrees with the Black Lives Matter movement. 

"Understand who it's coming from and that he might just know more than you living in a different skin," McGowan said.

Elder himself took issue with the rise in critical race theory politics during the event, saying he doesn't "believe in systemic racism."

"The first time Gallup asked about racism, about whether or not you'd vote for a Black president was 1958," Elder said. "And the percentage who said yes was in the high 30's. Now, only three percent said they would not vote for a Black president."

"I am going to be uniting when I become governor," Elder continued. "I'm going to use my bully pulpit to unite us. Because we have far more in common than we have apart."

Allegations fly as recall vote looms for California’s Newsom

Associated Press 12 September, 2021 - 08:21pm

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a blitz of TV ads and a last-minute rally, California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom urged voters Sunday to turn back a looming recall vote that could remove him from office, while leading Republican Larry Elder broadly criticized the media for what he described as double standards that insulated Newsom from criticism and scrutiny throughout the contest.

The sunny, late-summer weekend was a swirl of political activity, as candidates held rallies, continued bus tours and cluttered the TV airwaves with advertising offering their closing arguments in advance of the election that concludes Tuesday.

Newsom — who is expecting President Joe Biden on Monday for a capstone get-out-the-vote rally in Long Beach — was in a largely Hispanic area on the northern edge of Los Angeles, where he sought to drive up turnout with the key voting bloc.

Elder also was in Los Angeles, where he was joined by activist and former actress Rose McGowan, who repeated her claims from recent days that Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, attempted to persuade her in 2017 not to go public with her allegations of sexual misconduct against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Siebel Newsom’s office described the allegations as a “complete fabrication.” In a brief interview with The Associated Press, Newsom characterized McGowan’s claims as a “last-minute classic hit piece” from one of Elder’s supporters.

The governor called Elder desperate and grasping, saying McGowan’s claims about his wife “just shows you how low things go in campaigns these days.”

He echoed his earlier criticism of Elder, saying the conservative talk show host and lawyer “doesn’t believe that women have the right to their own reproductive freedoms, he’s devoutly opposed to Roe v. Wade, doesn’t believe there’s a glass ceiling, doesn’t believe in pay equity laws.”

During her appearance, McGowan spoke warmly of Elder and lambasted Hollywood Democrats who she said traumatized her life. She now lives in Mexico.

“Do I agree with him on all points? No,” McGowan said. “So what. He is the better candidate. He is the better man.”

The last-minute exchange highlighted growing tensions in the election, which largely grew out frustration with Newsom’s pandemic orders that shuttered schools and businesses during the pandemic. Voting concludes Tuesday. Recent polling shows Newsom is likely to hold his job.

As Newsom’s “first partner,” Siebel Newsom, an actress turned documentary filmmaker, has championed gender equality and society’s treatment of women and families.

McGowan, 48, who is known for her role in the “Scream” movie franchise, was one of the earliest of dozens of women to accuse Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, making her a major figure in the #MeToo movement.

Elder, who could become the state’s first Black governor, targeted some of his sharpest remarks at what he described as skewed media coverage.

Earlier this week, his walking tour of homeless encampments in LA’s Venice Beach neighborhood was cut short after a woman bicyclist wearing a gorilla mask threw an egg toward Elder and then took a swing at a member of his entourage. The confrontation set off strong reactions on Twitter, with conservatives charging the incident wasn’t immediately branded a racist attack because Elder is a conservative.

If he was a Democrat “it would have been a major story,” Elder said. He also said McGowan’s accusations largely have been ignored by the media, but argued that if similar charges had been made about him “that’s all you guys would be talking about.”

“This is a double standard,” he said. “I’m sick of it.”

Emails posted on Twitter by McGowan showed she had contact with Newsom’s wife, which her office confirmed but said their communication was “as fellow survivors of sexual assault and in Jennifer’s former capacity leading the Representation Project, an organization that fights limiting gender stereotypes and norms.”

One of McGowan’s key claims is that during a 2017 phone conversation, Newsom’s wife referenced a law firm that was working with Weinstein and asked her what the firm could do “to make you happy.”

McGowan said Sunday she didn’t recognize the firm’s name at the time. “I had no idea who that was. So, I just said nothing and hung up on her. That was my last contact with her,” she said.

The election will determine whether Newsom can complete his first term or will be tossed out of office more than a year early. Voters are being asked two questions: Should Newsom be recalled and, if so, who should replace him? If he gets a majority vote on the first question, the second question with the names of 46 replacement candidate is irrelevant. Otherwise, the highest vote-getter among the replacement candidates would become governor.

Rose McGowan appeared with Larry Elder and accused Gov. Gavin Newsom's wife of trying to silence her about Harvey Weinstein

Yahoo! Voices 12 September, 2021 - 06:09pm

McGowan accused Gov. Gavin Newsom's wife of trying to silence her about Harvey Weinstein.

A spokesperson for Jennifer Siebel Newsom called the claims a "complete fabrication."

See more stories on Insider's business page.

Activist and actor Rose McGowan appeared alongside California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder at a press conference on Sunday, two days before the state's recall election.

McGowan, a leading figure in the #MeToo movement, accused the wife of Elder's opponent, Gov. Gavin Newsom, of trying to silence her about movie producer Harvey Weinstein, The Washington Post's Dave Weigel reported.

In a statement provided to Insider, a spokesperson for Jennifer Siebel Newsom said McGowan's claim was a "complete fabrication."

"It's disappointing but not surprising to see political opponents launch these false attacks just days before the election. Their limited correspondence has been strictly as fellow survivors of sexual assault and in Jennifer's former capacity leading the Representation Project, an organization that fights limiting gender stereotypes and norms," the statement said.

The spokesperson also noted Jennifer Siebel Newsom came forward with her own allegations about Weinstein in October 2017 in a piece she wrote for Huffpost.

McGowan first made the accusation against Jennifer Siebel Newsom, who married Gavin Newsom in 2008, on Thursday while speaking on The Rubin Report, a political news talk show.

McGowan said Jennifer Siebel Newsom contacted her in 2017, about six months before The New York Times published their bombshell report detailing decades of sexual harassment accusations against Weinstein.

McGowan said Jennifer Siebel Newsom called her on behalf of Weinstein's lawyer to ask what they could do "to make her happy," which she understood to be a bribe offer.

McGowan also shared a Twitter thread on Sunday detailing how she says her interactions with Jennifer Siebel Newsom unfolded.

At the press conference with Elder, McGowan also said she is no longer a Democrat, "because everyone who has harassed, stalked, and stolen from me in my time in Hollywood has been a Democrat," Weigel reported.

She said she does not agree with Elder, who is a Republican, on every issue, but that he is a "better candidate" and "better man" than Gavin Newsom.

She did not make any allegations about Gavin Newsom, who has a comfortable lead in the polls, during the press conference, according to Weigel.

McGowan did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Elder, a conservative talk radio host who is leading amongst Newsom's challengers, has a long history of making derogatory comments about women, CNN reported.

Elder's ex-wife has accused him of domestic violence and said he pressured her into "unwanted sexual activity," which Elder has denied. She filed a police report against him late last month after he publicly denied her claim that he had once brandished a gun at her in 2015.

But the Los Angeles County district attorney said the statute of limitations had passed and Elder would not be charged, FOX11 reported.

‘They’re All In on It!’ Rose McGowan Slams Dems at Larry Elder Campaign Event

The Daily Beast 12 September, 2021 - 05:26pm

McGowan began by announcing she no longer considered herself a Democrat because anyone who has “harassed, stalked, and stolen” from her in Hollywood has allegedly been a Democrat. After expressing her disgust for the party, McGowan spoke on the issue Elder’s campaign had invited her for: allegations that Gov. Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, tried to bribe her in an attempt to hush her 2017 sexual assault accusations against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

In a YouTube interview last week, McGowan said Newsom’s wife had called her and asked “what it would take to make [her] happy.”

McGowan added at Sunday’s press conference that Jennifer Siebel Newsom “inferred that she was a Weinstein rape victim to get into this private group of Weinstein rape victims.”

McGowan continued to go off on Democrats, bizarrely bringing up former President Obama’s daughter’s internship with the Weinstein Company. “They’re all in on it,” she said.

“Do I agree with him on every issue? No. So what?” said McGowan of Elder’s policies. “He is the better candidate. He is the better man.”

When Elder took the floor, he briefly touched on the allegations against Newsom’s wife but directed most of his attention to alleged unfair media coverage and reasons why America is no longer racist.

Elder also criticized the media for insufficiently covering the gorilla-masked woman who attacked him with an egg in Venice, saying that if he were a Democrat, the media would be “talking about it in Bangladesh” and investigating the incident as a hate crime.

Larry Elder, Gavin Newsom gear up for California recall battle

Yahoo! Voices 12 September, 2021 - 01:55pm

In a sit-down interview with ABC News’ Zohreen Shah on Saturday, Elder was asked repeatedly if he would accept the results of Tuesday’s election, but he avoided answering, suggesting that as long as the governor is recalled, the election is legitimate.

"So many people are going to vote to have [Newsom] recalled, I'm not worried about fraud," he said.

But Elder earlier this week made unsubstantiated claims of possible fraud at a campaign event, saying the recall could see similar "shenanigans" as many Republicans claimed happened in last year’s presidential election, despite no evidence of widespread election fraud.

Elder's campaign has an election integrity section on his website, where voters can fill out a form to report alleged incidents of voter fraud and sign a petition to investigate the results of the recall.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign team said they were prepared for potential lawsuits but wouldn’t elaborate on specifics during a campaign stop Thursday.

In the interview with Shah, Elder also deflected questions about some of the controversial statements he's made in the past, such as saying slave owners should get reparations.

"Cover what I said about the election," he said. "The election is occurring because people are unhappy with how California is being governed the last two years."

If he were to be elected, Elder already has his first order of business planned. "The first thing I'm going to do is repeal the requirement for state workers that they have to be tested once a week and they have to wear a mask," he said. "I don't think the science supports that."

It's the issues brought up by COVID-19 that previously plagued Newsom’s political career and now, in recent days, have bolstered it. The Public Policy Institute of California reported that 60% of respondents approve of the way Newsom has handled the pandemic in a survey released earlier this month.

Recent polling about the recall election looks promising for Newsom, as 56.2% of voters said they’ll vote to keep him, a 4% increase from last week’s reported polling average, according to FiveThirtyEight.

"Democrats didn't even take it seriously until literally, I won't even say a couple months ago, I'd say six or seven weeks ago," Newsom told ABC News. "People started waking up to this reality, we're closing that gap every single day. We're going to pull this thing out."

The boost comes as President Joe Biden is set to travel to California to campaign with Newsom on Monday as a final push to motivate voters.

But Newsom is facing new controversies in the final stretch. Actress Rose McGowan recently alleged Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, tried to bribe her against coming forward with her sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein. A spokesperson for Siebel Newsom told ABC News the allegation "is a complete fabrication," adding, "It’s disappointing but not surprising to see political opponents launch these false attacks just days before the election."

McGowan will campaign with Elder on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Four people are injured and at least two people unaccounted for after an explosion rocked an apartment complex in an Atlanta suburb Sunday afternoon, first responders said. At 1:24 p.m. the Dunwoody, Georgia, police department received a call about the explosion at the Arrive Apartments, a luxury apartment complex roughly 15 miles north of downtown Atlanta. At least 15 to 20 units of the three-story building were damaged in the blast, Dunwoody Deputy Fire Chief Melvin Carter told reporters at a news conference Sunday afternoon.

The "long-range cruise missiles" were launched on Saturday and Sunday and allegedly hit a target 1,500 kilometers away, officials said on North Korea's state-run media. The officials claimed the test was successful, and said the missile is "a strategic weapon of great significance," to North Korea's defense plans. Although the report said several top North Korean leaders and scientists were in attendance for the launches, there was no mention of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un being present.

Tropical Storm Nicholas has set a course toward the Gulf Coast and is expected to bring drenching rains to some regions still recovering from Hurricane Ida. The system strengthened from a tropical depression late Sunday morning in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, currently carrying maximum sustained winds up to 40 mph and moving north-northwest at 15 mph. The center of the storm is currently about 300 miles south-southeast from the mouth of the Rio Grande River. Nicholas is expected to become better organized and strengthen as it closes in on the southern Texas coast in the next 24 to 36 hours.

A teenager was killed and another was critically injured when gunfire erupted at a popular Halloween hayride attraction in a Pittsburgh suburb, and police said the suspected gunman remained on the run Sunday. The shooting unfolded around 8:15 p.m. Saturday at the Haunted Hills Hayride, about 13 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, according to the Allegheny County State Police. Police said gunfire broke out near the ticket booth about 15 minutes before the annual charity event was set to open for the first night in a run scheduled to go through Halloween.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., reiterated his call on Sunday for a strategic pause on the $3.5 trillion budget resolution, while Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., doubled down on the need to pass both the bipartisan infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills. "The urgency -- I can't understand why we can't take time to deliberate on this and work," Manchin told ABC "This Week" anchor George Stephanopoulos. In an interview that followed, Sanders told Stephanopoulos that he believes both bills will be passed.

Australia's approach to the pandemic -- strict border policies, snap lockdowns and aggressive contact tracing -- saw the country, along with neighboring New Zealand, praised throughout 2020 for taking a no-tolerance approach to public health. While other countries faced overwhelmed hospital systems and devastating death tolls, Australia enjoyed large public gatherings, and life went on as normal for most people within its sealed-off borders. In short, "Fortress Australia" has been breached.

In the wake of a Florida judge calling the state's anti-riot law unconstitutional, advocates are saying it should serve as a warning to other states looking to implement similar legislation. Chief Judge Mark Walker sided Thursday with civil rights groups suing Florida who alleged HB1 deters and punishes peaceful protests. Walker argued the language in the law was "vague to the point of unconstitutionality" and temporarily blocked the law from being enforced while legal challenges continue.

The area was so successful that famed author and orator Booker T. Washington dubbed it the "Black Wall Street of America" in 1913. Earlier this year, survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre recalled the scenes of horror and the evisceration of the city that once was. Another survivor of the two-day span of violence against Black residents of Tulsa, Oklahoma's Greenwood district, World War II veteran Hughes Van Ellis, lamented the losses and the thought of "what it could have been," he told members of Congress.

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy defended President Joe Biden's new actions to combat COVID-19, calling it an "ambitious" and "thoughtful" plan to increase vaccinations as the country faces more than 100,000 cases a day for the past four weeks and roughly a quarter million new cases being reported among children. "This is the next step in a series of steps that have to be taken to help protect COVID-19, and help us get through this pandemic," Murthy told ABC "This Week" anchor George Stephanopoulos. On Thursday, Biden announced his furthest measures yet to combat the delta variant -- unveiling a six-part strategy that includes a new Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule for private businesses with over 100 employees to either require workers to be fully vaccinated or face weekly testing, covering roughly 80 million workers.

The Biden administration in recent weeks has announced a series of mandates that require long-term care facilities to fully vaccinate staff against COVID-19, drawing mixed responses from providers, industry leaders and advocates, including those who said the federal policies will put extra strain on an industry already suffering a workforce shortage. President Joe Biden's mandate, announced last month, directly targets nursing homes -- employees in long-term care settings must be vaccinated for those facilities to continue receiving federal Medicare and Medicaid funding. Additional White House announcements made this week could also indirectly affect nursing homes, including an upcoming Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule that would mandate private businesses with at least 100 employees require employees to either be vaccinated or undergo weekly testing.

SpaceX's Inspiration4 mission may sound familiar, as another billionaire-backed space launch, but it's going where neither Richard Branson nor Jeff Bezos could -- into orbit. Branson's Virgin Galactic and Bezos' Blue Origin sent civilians into space on brief, suborbital flights that lasted only for a few minutes. Inspiration4 will orbit 360 miles above Earth, higher than the International Space Station, with no professional astronaut on board.

Liam Canavan, 19, never got to meet his uncle Sean, who would have become his godfather if he hadn't been working a carpentry job on Sept. 11, 2001, renovating office space on the 98th floor of the World Trade Center's South Tower. "And I can't help but look at the families that are here with us today, and I can't even imagine how they're feeling, how they feel every day, and especially on a day like today."

As promised, the Biden administration is challenging a Texas ruling that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program is unlawful. The Department of Justice filed a notice in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday to start the process to overturn the decision by U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen in favor of nine states led by Texas that found the creation of the DACA program violated federal administrative law. Hanen’s decision prevents the government from granting any future DACA applications but does not affect application renewals or those who were "Dreamers" -- as those in the program are often called -- at the time of the ruling.

Three people have been arrested for allegedly carrying out a mass shooting that injured seven, including a 3-year-old child, in southern Illinois. Three suspects opened fire near 6th Street and Martin Luther King Drive in East St. Louis, Illinois around 4 p.m. Thursday, police said. In the chaotic shooting, Illinois State Police (ISP) said that one of the shooting victims was a 25-year-old man who crashed the car he was driving into a MetroLink train.

Former President George W. Bush spoke at the Sept. 11 memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, to mark the 20th anniversary of the attacks Saturday. The memorial commemorates the crash of United Flight 93, one of four commercial airplanes hijacked in the September 11 attacks. Bush, who was in office at the time, reflected on the bravery of those passengers and the unity and heroism that took place in the days after the attacks, while warning about the lingering threat of terrorism, both foreign and domestic.

The death toll from Hurricane Ida and its aftermath continues to rise, as locals try to piece their lives back together and officials rescue oil-soaked birds impacted by a storm-related oil spill. Overall, 84 people have died across eight states due to Ida's wrath as a Category 4 storm that made landfall Aug. 29. The death toll in New Jersey rose to 29 Friday after Passaic City Mayor Hector C. Lora said two bodies recovered from the Passaic River Wednesday and Thursday were identified as the two individuals reported missing the day the storm hit the state.

Just a few months ago, there were only five COVID-19 patients, at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho. Nearly all of these patients are not vaccinated, a reflection of "the amount of misinformation that's being absorbed, and taken as truth in our community because people are convinced that they don't want to be vaccinated, and then they end up here," Dr. Meghan McInerney, the intensive care unit's medical director, told ABC News. Hospitals across the state of Idaho are now facing their most significant surge yet, as COVID-19 patients flood into emergency departments.

At 9:59 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, the World Trade Center South Tower fell. About 15 minutes later, photographer Shannon Stapleton scrambled over debris, peering through dust and smoke for pictures near the still-standing, but crippled, North Tower. Kayla Bergeron, head of public relations for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owned the buildings, had just made her way down 68 darkened and flooded flights of stairs.

"We obviously wanted Americans to live their lives as normally as possible, but to understand that we live and operate in a very dangerous world where there are people, there are organizations, there are groups that don't have very kind views about our way of life, about our values," Gonzales told ABC News. More than 70 million people living in the United States, according to yearly birth data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, had not yet been born on 9/11.

In the aftermath of President Joe Biden's latest announcement that companies with over 100 employees must mandate vaccines or test all employees once a week, legal experts say the Department of Labor rule will be litigious and messy, but it just might work. "There's never been anything so extensive in American history that it requires vaccines across such a wide swath of Americans," said Lawrence Gostin, a law professor at Georgetown University and director of the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law. Already, Republican governors have outlined plans to overturn the rule -- which hasn't even been implemented by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration -- on behalf of their constituents who believe it infringes on their individual rights.

Rose McGowan to join Larry Elder amid Harvey Weinstein-related allegation against Newsom's wife

Fox News correspondent Claudia Cowan reports on the latest.

Actress Rose McGowan will appear alongside Republican California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder to address the media Sunday afternoon, two days before the state's recall election in which Elder is trying to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom.

McGowan claims that six months before she came forward with sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Newsom's wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom reached out to her relaying a message from Weinstein's attorney David Boies.

"So this woman, I don’t know, some blonde lady name with the last name of the Newsom, cold-calls me, and was like, David Boies wants to know what it would take to make you happy,'" McGowan told Dave Rubin on the Rubin Report YouTube show.

Elder said that he does not know if McGowan's allegations are true, but he told Fox LA that McGowan "has produced emails that were sent to her from Gavin Newsom's wife."

The Washington Free Beacon reported that according to financial disclosures, Newsom has accepted pricey bottles of wine from Boies, including in 2017, roughly six weeks after the publication of a New Yorker report that Boies tried to dig up dirt on Weinstein accusers, including McGowan.

Fox News reached out to Newsom's office for a response to the allegations but they did not immediately respond.

Elder and McGowan will appear together at the Luxe Hotel Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles at 1 p.m. local time.

McGowan has been a vocal critic of Newsom. She posted a video on Thursday in which she blasted him and his wife, calling them both "a fraud."

"I have the receipts. I wish I didn't. I wish you were all real. I wish you really did help, but you don't and you're on the side of wrong."
