About 100 people stood waving flags and holding signs of support for President Donald Trump on the sidewalk on California Avenue in front of the Barnes and Noble parking lot on a breezy Thursday afternoon.

By 4 p.m. traffic was picking up and a cacophony of supportive honks began to burst through the hum of vehicles driving by in both directions, including the deep bellow from a white tractor trailer. The wind was just right for the dozens of flags supporters hoisted into the air and every now and then one would call out to sign a petition to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The rally was organized by Tehachapi resident and Republican activist Craig Luther and it coincided with a Women for America First rally for Trump held in Washington D.C. the same day along with several other pro-Trump rallies around the country.

"I said, wow, I'm so sick and tired and horrified by Democrats trying to undo a fair and legal election," said Luther, standing at the front line of the rally. "We're like-minded, peaceful people and we're here to express our deep and unbending support for the president."

Luther said the rally, scheduled to run from 3 to 7 p.m., was mostly motivated by the impeachment inquiry Democrats have opened into the President's dealing with the new Ukrainian president. He calls it the "Seinfeld Impeachment" because, like the popular TV show, "it's an impeachment about nothing."

Rally goers held signs calling out Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and California Congressman Adam Schiff. They talked about everything from impeachment to the state's sex ed curriculum and the recent announcement that state funding for roads was being diverted by Newsom for other projects, including monies earmarked to complete the widening of Highway 46.

"To save California and save our freedom," said Susan Adams when asked what brought her out to the rally. She's leading the Kern County effort to recall Newsom and said she was surprised by how many people signing the petition said they were Democrats.

While the rally garnered its share of supportive honks and waves and fist pumps from passersby, there were a couple people who shared their opposing views with the protestors. Two people stood on the opposite side of the street holding a sign calling out Trump's ties to Russia. They left by around 4:15 p.m.

Then, about 10 minutes later, a white Dodge Charger drove by holding a Mexican flag out the window. For a moment, the car was stopped by a red light directly in front of the Trump rally and the vehicle's back seat occupant could be seen holding a cell phone in one hand pointed toward himself selfie-style, while waving the flag back and forth out the car's window.

"Go home," came a cry from the Trump crowd. "This is America."

Then the light changed and the car continued driving down California Avenue.

It is disturbing that anyone would support this clearly criminal President.

How twisted would you have to be to ignore his thieving, his NYC thug behavior, his misogyny, his racism... and his treason?

I've yet to hear a Trump voter give a cogent reason why he was a better choice than Hillary, whatever her flaws. Uh... er... Benghazi! emails!

Incoherent fools.

Copper

The childish antics yesterday of the republicans storming a closed door hearing and yet again making a mockery of our rules and laws proves how childish embarrassing g disgraceful and idiotic they all are. What a total embarrassment how would anybody align themselves with such blatant FU to our constitution and call themselves patriotic with a straight face?!!

Copper

What say you trump supporters of the president comparing his impeachment inquiry to the lynchings of African Americans in our country?! Is there any low that is low enough that you will take a stand against this disgrace of a person?

Gene Pool Chlorinator

Sorry, where did he mention "lynchings of African Americans", Copper? Oh, that's right- HE DIDN'T. Quit making things up- we have enough of that going on now...

Copper

He said “lynchings” that is completely disgraceful and disrespectful to the citizens of our country who were murdered and lived in very real fear of being lynched. He said out of his big fat stupid mouth. If you don’t think that is wrong you are a bigot.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

You quoted him completely incorrectly Copper- just like you always do.

You do know that African-Americans, Anglo-Americans, Mexicans, Italians and Chinese were all lynched in our country, right? No- I don't imagine you had any idea that happened.

And I never said lynching wasn't wrong- you and your fundamental attribution errors continue to astound.

I'm done wasting my time having a battle of wits with an unarmed person...

Bye.

Copper

Dude read the news . Get your head out of the sand.!( I’m being nice here) Democrat’s and Republicans both spoke out and said trump should use the word lynching to describe the impeach inquiry. Minimizing and mocking something so painful to many is straight from trumps sociopathic playbook.

Barros Serrano

Given that 3/4 of lynching victims were A-A, and that hanging up lynching nooses is a common way of intimidating black people... yes, Trump trivialized the KKK lynchings in a tawdry attempt to portray himself (a criminal and traitor) as a victim.

Pathetic. I think once Trump is in a prison cell, there should be a surveillance camera showing him 24 hrs a day on a public TV channel for all to see. We deserve that satisfaction after having to endure his onerous presence in the daily news for over 2 years.

Copper

I would actually have some respect for a trumpet who would be truthful and say yes the president is all these things but I don’t care I still support him because I am also this way. That would at least show some courage and character. Just admit what you are and stop lying , deflecting ,and name calling.

Copper

Quite contraire. I’ma very happy person and absolutely love people. ALL people regardless of color of their skin , sexuality, or religion. Can trump supporters say the same? Not if they follow their presidents example. Is that all you have to insult me with? Why is it every single trump supporter instead of having a discussion with facts and words said by the president they just resort to schoolyard name calling and bulky tactics. Well if the head stinks so does the rest of the supporters. You have said nothing about the corruption , complete middle finger up to our constitution and laws. Did you see chump flip off the astronauts? Pathetic. No the derangement comes from trump supporters who pretend their emperor has clothes on even though he’s running around baring his bright orange a$&

Gene Pool Chlorinator

So, you love ALL people, EXCEPT for Trump supporters (99.9% of whom you don't even know)???

Copper

I know enough to know they are 99.99 percent bigoted. Homophobic, anti women anti environment only care about the uber wealthy and giving them tax cuts not American anti aliens pro Putin pro China shall I go on.. prove me wrong. Still waiting for 1 trumpet to come with actual facts to make a point .

Gene Pool Chlorinator

You don't know anything Copper- why don't you try to prove your ridiculous 99.99% claim all Trump supporters are bigoted?

YOU are making the accusation, so YOU prove it. I'll make it easy for you, you can't.

Move along now...

Copper

That was anti allies but anti alien fits as well by the way anti immigration is anti American

Copper

Did I say that? No my God tells me to love everybody sadly even trump supporters and trump himself even if they are despicable human beings. But I don’t have to like you or agree with you how terribly sad and wrong you all are.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

You're the one that's sad Copper.

Seriously, you'd be a great social psychology experiment in Confirmation Bias...

Barros Serrano

Gene pool chlorinator... really? That sounds like a description of eugenics.

So are you advocating eugenics? Post-natal perhaps? Genocide against whom, exactly?

As I am of Appalachian origin, forced sterilizations are part of the history of my people, so I do not take support for eugenics lightly.

Think "inferior" types should be sterilized? Then start with Trump supporters.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

What the hel* are you talking about Barros?

I don't remember mentioning anything about eugenics- it was a terrible practice and still exists to this day. If you don't believe me, look at the locations of PP offices...

I'm sure you are familiar with Margaret Sanger, since you seem to know so much about eugenics. The lies about the origination of PP are almost passed along as fact to many people too lazy to do their own research.

Seems like you have the Copper disease as well- attributing words to someone when they were never uttered.

Take a breath man...

Copper

Please Obama looks like Jesus compared to trump .theres actually no comparison trump is slime on Obama’s shoe and his emotionless stone face “I really don’t care, do you?” Third wife.

Veritas

You are a funny little person. You call people bigots and yet you are one. Think about that, because most of what you wrote validates that you are a bigot. I never said Trump wasn’t most of the things you wrote. All I was trying to get you to understand is even though he is worse than any we have had in the past 30 years, all the others were still liars and cheats to one degree or another. I have grown tired of your narrow minded commentary. I am done reading and responding to your comments. Have a nice day!

Copper

Aww resorting to calling names because you can’t back anything up with facts or reality. Hmm straight from the Trump playbook. I stand by what I said. Trump is a racist white supremacist bigot who frequently defends other bigots and speaks in white supremacist dog whistles. If you support Trump then you support that. Period end of story. Yes you are tired of hearing the truth of the most disgraceful sorry excuse for a president in the history of our country. Truth and facts does not make a narrow mind but choosing to ignore them does.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

Straight from the Dem playbook, Copper. Again, still waiting for some original thought from you. Good thing I'm not holding my breath...

Copper

Yeah thirty hurts but ya”ll keep your head in the sand while the demagogue sociopath in office destroys our country.

Copper

We can not afford to deflect from trumps atrocities by saying well others aren’t perfect either. Everything trump has done is to undermine our democracy , divide this nation and undo every single common sense progressive law brought to the table. This is not a time to sit on the fence his is a pivotal crisis in the history of our country , time to take a side.

CLuther1950

My dear Copper. You must be a very unhappy human being. I feel for you, and I feel very sorry for you. My recommendation for your Trump Derangement Syndrome: Please. Get. Help. (That's it. Like "Veritas," I'm done.)

Copper

Do any trump supporters care for our laws at all? G-7 being held at a trump property. Emoluments clause anyone? Every day trump laughs at this country our constitution and does whatever Putin wants him to do. But go ahead and keep following your emperor with no clothes and show everyone you’re own lack of morals and ethics. What you don’t condemn you condone.

CLuther1950

Cooper. As I noted, I'm hoping to help plan another pro-Trump rally perhaps a couple months before the election. To state the obvious, you are not a Trump supporter and quite passionate about your views. I would love to have the opportunity to explain to you why I support our president and believe he is having great success building our economy and keep the peace abroad. Since he became president, some 6-7 million new jobs have been created, while 8 million people are no longer beholden to food stamps; employment for all folks (white, black, brown, green, etc!) has improved dramatically over past 3 years, while the median household middle-class income has risen by $4-5,000 (after wages had been stagnant for decades). In fact, what is remarkable about the economic upturn since Trump became president is just how inclusive it is--everyone, regardless of race or gender, is benefiting. That's one reason why the president's support among Hispanics and African-Americans is slowly, albeit inexorably, improving. I'm not trying to change you mind, just trying to get you to understand why those who support President Trump do so.

Copper

Well at least admit you support a liar and a crook

Copper

Keep the peace abroad? Ok you have zero credibility tell that to the Kurds our allies who have been murdered because of trumps policy . Wow you are hopeless

CLuther1950

I'm a military historian. To understand a military conflict you first have to understand two things: the forces involved (correlation of forces on both sides), and the geography. According to numerous legitimate accounts (including that of a top member of the president's National Security Council), we had a TOTAL of 25 troops in northeastern Syria. Erdogon and the Turks invaded a corridor into NE Syria with thousands of troops, tanks, artillery and fighter-bomber support overhead. Erdogon had been planning this invasion for some 2 years; according to Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, we tried for months to talk him out of it, to no avail. When it became clear that the Turks were going to invade, the Pentagon, as I understand it, advised that we withdraw those two dozen troops (less than a platoon!) to get them out of harm's way. Those who are clutching their pearls and screaming that Trump gave Erdogon the green light to attack and abandoned the Kurds (our "allies") by pulling back a tiny little "trip wire" (nothing but a bluff to begin with) of 25 men is utter nonsense. The president had no choice but to do what he did. And, I guarantee you, if he'd left that handful of soldiers in NE Syria, and harm had come to them because of the Turkish invasion, you'd be among the very first screaming for Trump's head! The Kurdish group Trump allegedly "abandoned," the "YPG," are NOT our allies. They have close ties with the PKK, the Kurdish Worker's Party, which is a Marxist group that has launched many terror attacks into Turkey and killed thousands of innocent Turks (thus, as much as I loathe Erdogan, he had legitimate reasons for his invasion). The YPG also has close ties to Syria's Assad and to the Iranians. Back in 2014 or so, the U.S. entered into a "transactional relationship" with the YPG to destroy ISIS, because we both had a mutual interest in doing so. In other words, we had no alliance with the YPG. Erdogan's end goal is to clear out a region in NE Syria (by destroying the YPG) and relocating there some 3.6 million Syria refugees still in Turkey. Again, as much as I hate Erdogan (a murderous dictator who's turned Turkey into an Islamist state), he did have legitimate reasons for his invasion. But the primary point is this: 25 U.S. soldiers, stationed along a Syrian border w/ Turkey that stretches for 511 miles, were not going to stop Erdogon from doing what he did. And it is ludicrous to say that Trump is responsible for what's happening simply because he recognized the obvious (Turks were not about to be stopped) and pulled back that handful of soldiers out of harm's way. In other words, by doing so, he didn't "green light" the Turkish invasion of NE Syria. BTW: The only reason we even have forces in Syria is because of Obama's fecklessness--because from the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011 he did virtually nothing to try to bring that war to an end. You do remember is so-called "red lines" don't you. Moreover, by dramatically reducing our "footprint" in the ME (e.g., by withdrawing virtually all our troops from Iraq in 2012 against the advise of all our generals) Obama created a vacuum that the Russians immediately exploited and filled. The Russians had been basically excluded from the ME since the 1973 war, but Obama let them back in; and now they're using their bombers and fighter-bombers to strike hospitals and schools. That's the stinking pile of s**t that Trump has inherited from Obama.

CLuther1950

About the ISIS FIGHTERS IN CAPTIVITY IN SYRIA. As I understand it, there are some 2500 ISIS fighters (most of them w/ European passports) that were locked up by the Kurds when the Turks invaded. Apparently, some of these ISIS fighters have escaped because the Kurds have bigger problems now than trying to keep them incarcerated. Of course, Trump is being blamed for this, too. But there's a problem with that interpretation: First of all, we were careful to pull out all captured ISIS fighters who had U.S. passports; we did this, in part, to try to set a good example for the Europeans, so they'd also pull out their ISIS people. Of course, the Europeans didn't follow suite. So, if hundreds of them manage to break out of captivity, and join whatever ISIS fighters are still in the region, whose fault is that?

Copper

Trump announced the withdrawal of troops on the region. The very next day Kurds were being raped and murdered. Schools blown up. Men women and children. This was directly due to the presidents decision. Blood is on his hands period.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

Copper, do some research on the Kurds that you are talking about- I think you'll find they aren't what you've been led to believe. The enemy of our enemy may be our friend tactically (on occasion), but if you are as concerned about human rights as I think you are, you'll find plenty to find fault with in this group...

CLuther1950

Glad to see our Pro-Trump rally elicited so much thoughtful discussion!

In addition to having some 200 supporters at one time or another (we were out there for nearly 4 hours), we got 175 folks to sign the Recall Newsom petition!

A great time was had by all--yes, we were mostly older white folk (whom some of the folks in this comment section enjoy mocking), but we also had more than a few Hispanics and several African-Americans in our rally. And it was really wonderful to see how many hundreds of folks driving by honked in approval, gave us a thumbs up, pumped their fists, etc.

The rally was so much fun and so successful that we will organize another one in the months before the election. Please don't let that upset you; after all, while many of you seem to have forgotten it--this is OUR country, too.

Copper

Yes sadly in a free country we have to tolerate listening and watching bigots congregate and look stupid.

Copper

Yes- bakersfield at its best. I was hoping we researched history and how our previous leaders were Klans men, it is no huge surprise all those (100 less than 1% of population- be careful McCarthy) supporters were white, middle aged, gun living, low educated individuals. The people saying “go back” didn’t understand they were not native Americans and should go back themselves. This is what this administration’s platform is: if they look and act different then us than they are against us. Hate is their platform. God help us all.

Brazengunrunner91

Public Servant I could NOT have said it better myself! I am a NATIVE AMERICAN and laugh when ANY NON Native tells anyone else to GO HOME!

I do believe you mean our current president and his crooners are klansmen , he said “ some really good people “ marching with neo nazis. Tells 3 congresswoman of color to go back to their country, has spoken known white supremacist dog whistles more times than we can count, his daddy was a klansman with pictures in his klans outfit. We definitely have a white supremacist as a president and all his supporters are crawling out from their sad little racist ricks. Hie many b b q Becky’s, lemonade stand Lisa’s , and neighborhood park patty’s, are being green lighted to fly their racist flags figuratively and literally. Trump has done more damage to this country and the world than any other president in our history.

I bet all these women for trump are the same kind of women who don’t care their husbands cheat on them as long as it doesn’t disrupt their lifestyle. Joke about grabbing women’s privates no biggie, paying off strippers no biggie , creeping around pageant dressing rooms no biggie. Cheats on wife after wife no biggie. These women are sorry excuses for women and what they are teaching their daughters is respectful and ok in a marriage by supporting the adulterous president. Not to mention the fact that they don’t want to have control over their own bodies and let old white men make decisions for them. Grow a backbone ladies this is beyond sad

Veritas

Replace the name of Trump with ‘Slick Willie’ Clinton as a comparable adulterous president. Now based on your previous posts you obviously voted for his, as you put it, ‘backboneless’ wife for president. Why would you want a sorry excuse for a woman to be president? Your morals do not appear to be on par with the high road you act like you are on. I by no means support Trump’s idiotic behavior, but the 4 previous presidents were also morally bankrupt, albeit to different degrees of course.

Copper

Never happy about Hillary running I agree why did she stay with Bill? Why does Melania stay with Trumo? How was Obama morally bankrupt? Him and Michelle were all class no drama no skeletons eloquent and down to earth.

Let’s see, the Benghazi debacle and related cover up of the personal computer server crime by Hillary. Syria foreign policy disaster is another. His campaign pledge to fix the immigration system and close Guantanamo. Not only did neither happen but he never even made a true attempt to do so. And then there is the little issue of using his presidential powers to benefit his buddies, Marty Nesbitt and Harreld Kirkpatrick III and their investment firm Vistria. The point is, he is not morally and ethically pure by any stretch of the means. I am not saying he was worse than the others just not pure as you seem to think he is.

From a 11/06/16 PBS article:



Electoral College is ‘vestige’ of slavery, say some Constitutional scholars

By — Kamala Kelkar



"When the founders of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 considered whether America should let the people elect their president through a popular vote, James Madison said that "Negroes" in the South presented a "difficulty … of a serious nature....



....When the founders of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 considered whether America should let the people elect their president through a popular vote, James Madison said that "Negroes" in the South presented a "difficulty … of a serious nature." of the 13 states if the count included slaves, who comprised about 40 percent of its population....



....Madison knew that the North would outnumber the South, despite there being more than half a million slaves in the South who were their economic vitality, but could not vote. His proposition for the Electoral College included the "three-fifths compromise," where black people could be counted as three-fifths of a person, instead of a whole. This clause garnered the state 12 out of 91 electoral votes, more than a quarter of what a president needed to win....



...."None of this is about slaves voting," said Finkelman, who wrote a paper on the origins of the Electoral College for a symposium after Gore lost. "The debates are in part about political power and also the fundamental immorality of counting slaves for the purpose of giving political power to the master class."



....He said the Electoral College's three-fifths clause enabled Thomas Jefferson, who owned more than a hundred slaves, to beat out in 1800 John Adams, who was opposed to slavery, since the South had a stronghold....

"Ralph Reed recently went on a tear about how horrible abortion is, while in the same breath saying that evangelical Christians must obey Trump. He supports the Syrian slaughter because he literally argued that Trump was equal to God. His book is even entitled Render to God and Trump.



Paula White said opposing Trump was opposing God.



Robert Jeffress announced that he will submit and defer to Trump on his decision to allow the killing of the Kurds. He admitted what we already know: not one evangelical will change their vote over this.



Sure enough, at the so-called “Values Voter Summit,” which occurred after the Trump-approved genocide, all of the pastors prayed for Trump and commanded obedience to their Golden Calf.



And, as expected, reporters couldn’t find one right-wing evangelical willing to condemn him over this."

The reason we have an Electoral College under the Constitution is to provide fair participation by all states regardless of size. Otherwise candidates would only campaign in CA, NY, TX and IL.

Sorry you don't like the Constitution that Nancy claims she's clinging to, but Trump was smart enough to campaign for electoral votes. Hillary slept.

Fortunately, this pro-Trump group is small. If the most supporters that could be rounded up for this rally in a city of 380,000 is 100, that's good news. Only .03% of Bakersfield is fascist enough to publicly support Donald Trump. Unfortunately, voting is private, so triple that and you still only have .1%. Very good news indeed.

Bill Peloquin

I agree, I am looking forward to Donald's ending. Mr. McCarthy is sticking with Mr. Trump to the bottom. Now is the time for a strong local Democrat to stand against Mr. McCarthy.

Buck77

Using the words Strong and Democrat in the same sentence is called an oxymoron. Hope Congress tries to impeach Trump. It's gonna be fun to watch Obama, Hillary, Schiff and the rest of the Clown Posse testify under oath how they bought a fake dossier to get illegal FISA Warrants to spy on a candidate from the opposing party. And allowed the Mueller debacle to have a 2.5 year investigation into something they knew never happened. Looks like an all expense paid vacation in beautiful Fort Leavenworth Kansas Federal Penitentiary for the next 25 years to Life for some lucky Democrats. I can't wait.

Mueller said if trump was not the president he would be arrested. Just because he’s president and can’t be charged yet does not mean he is innocent. Listen to the words that come out of his mouth. He has admitted to high crimes and treason on air and on Twitter. Your emperor has no clothes how long are you going to pretend he does?

If you want a strong Democrat stand, get your Congresspeople to do their jobs instead of acting like juvenile delinquents. Then get your one party state government to quit destroying Kern County industries and our children with gender confused indoctrination instead of the 3 R's, which CA ranks under Mississippi on. It's rapidly coming back yo bite them in the butt.

Copper

I think you mean quit destroying our children by stopping industries in the valley from polluting and destroying it. I invite Mr. Todd to sit and talk with a few transgender folks and have a real conversation with them so he can stop being prejudice and a bully.

Oh, you even brought you're script with you. How cute. Yeah, the group that tries to get rid of Free Speech, the Constitution, and tells you what to think, say and spies illegally on political opponents calls someone else Fascist. It might help if you actually looked up the word.

Jerry Todd

Fascist? Antifa, claiming to be against Fascism is Fascist. Don't sweat the turnout. It was only a few day's notice. I couldn't make it due to illness in the family. Made up for it in Dallas with 26,000 in the auditorium and another 20,000 outside.

Copper

Yep that basket of deplorables in all their pathetic hate lmongering glory

Oh, Bakersfield. An autistic man as president. You are opened minded.

Buck77

Yeah, Wharton School of Business just gives away degrees to autistic people. And by the way, you are now using autism as an insult? Funny considering the friggin' clown show the Democrat Candidate Debates have become. If telling people how much free sh*t you're gonna promise knowing they have no intention of doing or seeing who can call each other and everyone else a racist the most times was how they won the nomination they'd all be tied for first.

Copper

Well if the shoe fits. It’s sad we have to remind people that racism is bad.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

Copper, thanks for displaying the standard Leftist retort towards anyone that disagrees with them (RACIST!!). It's really pretty juvenile if you think about it.

Copper

You mean daddy bought his degree . Obvious the man can’t even spell, speak or form a paragraph that makes any sense!

Jerry Todd

Ah. Another psychoanalyst. The weenies are loaded with them.

Copper

Don’t insult people with autism.

Gene Pool Chlorinator

Someone write that one for you Copper?

Lilyrose

Meant no insult to the spectrum of autism. However it's interesting what is considered acceptable by Americans. The inability to reason, write and verbalize reflects upon our nation's education system . A man with limited brain capabilities and a deficit in social interactions, miss-placed body movements, inappropriate language skills and lack of empathy with grandiose selfishness reflects those who support him.

I believe the word yiur looking for is Sociopath
