California Will Not Allow USA to Transport Oil Through Its Territory

California isn’t just a separate country; it is a hostile country:

California will block the transportation through its state of petroleum from new offshore oil rigs, officials told Reuters on Wednesday, a move meant to hobble the Trump administration’s effort to vastly expand drilling in U.S. federal waters.

We would have to go around California when transporting oil, the lifeblood of the economy, for the same reason that we have to go around Iran when supplying troops in Afghanistan. Both California and Iran are enemy lands from which we cannot expect cooperation.

“I am resolved that not a single drop from Trump’s new oil plan ever makes landfall in California,” Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, chair of the State Lands Commission and a Democratic candidate for governor, said in an emailed statement.

Newsom, best known for his drinking problem and extramarital shenanigans when he was Mayor of San Francisco, is likely to be the next Governor of California.

A quarter of a billion barrels of oil wait to be claimed off the coast of California. If it is up to the kooks running the state, this precious resource will never be extracted. They want the economy to run on pixie dust and liberal posturing instead.

On a tip from Bodhisattva.

    I believe that is called restraint of trade. Newsom better read up on the history of Standard Oil. Either that or start drinking more heavily.

  • oldguy

    Invade CA with federal troops, remove all government and install a military governor. It’s time.

    The solution is simple. Sell all of that off-coast oil to Japan and other East Asian countries that are hungry for it. I was told some years ago that CA crude was more optimized for Asian refineries than our own anyways.

  • Richard Jennings

    Yeah, watch the oil companies shut off fuel to California. Ghastly Nuisance will shiit bricks!

  • George Young

    the solution to this is to simply cut all federal funding to California. No more road, school, disaster, or social services money. Total economic siege.

  • The Uhlan

    meet the Commerce Clause

  • Mr. Freemarket

    It has been done before.

  • John D. Rockefeller

    No problem. Slant drilling, load onto tankers, ship to the real ports in Texas and Louisiana, ship no oil into California by ship, rail, or truck, let them get by on what they can produce themselves. Sit back and enjoy the show.

  • C. S. P. Schofield

    Commerce clause gonna make you its bitch, Newsome.

    Sounds like grounds for declaring martial law. I’m looking forward to this!

  • itsatax

    Yep. Preventing this kind of crap is exactly why it’s in there.

  • Buffalobob

    Will these nitwits also ban the transporting of automotive fuel?

  • Occam’s Stubble

    One of the absolute best things about the Trump presidency is watching moonbats argue for states’ rights and sovereignty.

  • Gutterboy

    Why any sane people still live there is beyond me.

    Family mostly…

  • Kris Sandbom

    um, interstate commerce clause anyone????

  • ICEvictim

    yup! Eminent Domain and the superior claim of the federal government under the Constitution. I’d love to see that cork soaker in cuffs being marched away.

  • Orwellian States

    Fine. Don’t allow gas to go into California. Two can play the same game.

  • damon

    They’ll bock oil deliveries, but not the invaders from the south.

    If you’re starting from the beginning (and can handle being a token conservative), teaching is good In that it allows you to move around the country with ease, if you are teaching in the right area. Selling the house wasn’t a problem, because, as with so many in the very expensive state of CA, we rented.

    Most states will offer careers that allow for a trip once-in-a-while, even if it means cutting back on other things, but I certainly understand how, emotionally, it could be quite a sacrifice for many people to have to move. And if you have a good, high-paying job there that doesn’t transfer easily…whole different matter.

    You brought up one of the biggest problems, which is “remain(ing) conservative.” It’s not the small towns and rural areas that are the problem, it’s that all the red states have those irritating urban areas that try to run/ruin things for everybody there!

  • vladdy

    Certainly does make the rest of us wonder what WILL be the straw that breaks, etc. The “environmental talks” with other countries, the refusal to keep their illegals in their own states, so that they threaten the rest of us, the “ban” (let them try) on transporting certain substances through their states…the outrageous keep growing.

    Right now, the Dim AG’s of all these states are filing suit, costing taxpayers money and our executive branch time and trouble, against every EO the president signs. I’d say with those four topics, we have more than enough to declare that it’s time to take some sort of sanction/action against CA in particular, if not other such states.

    Doesn’t the fact that their illegals are free to cross state lines, adding to education costs and other social expenses for the rest of the states count for anything? Wouldn’t lawsuits against states that allow “sanctuary” — states with illegals who then cross borders to kill someone in another state — be at least a starting point?

    Don’t ask me; I’m no attorney. But we probably all agree that we cannot allow for hostile and sovereign states/counties within our borders to keep receiving all civil rights of American citizens.

    In California it’s the opposite, a blue state with irritating rural areas that try (mostly unsuccessfully) to ruin things. I’m retired law enforcement and when the mother in law passes we are out of here. The thought of being a government school teacher made me throw up in my mouth a little bit…

    P. S.
    Did you notice Gutterboy never answered my question? Probably lives in a blue state too but welcome to the interweb where everything can be solved by an opinion…

  • where’s J.R. Ewing ?

    More oil bidness for Texas.
    Ship it through here.
    The Gulf Coast could use a boost after Hurricane Harvey.
