Gavin Newsom Bans Conventional Vehicles

Never assume that Democrats will not follow up on an agenda item that is self-evidently insane. Where they have consolidated unchallenged power, there is no limit to the lunatic tyranny they will inflict. California is a case in point.

Only 10 years ago, California had a Republican governor (if you want to count Arnold Schwarzenegger as Republican). Only 45 years ago, Ronald Reagan was the governor. But due largely to demographic changes, Democrats will control the state for the foreseeable future, no matter how poorly they rule. So they rule like this:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday signed an executive order to ban gas-powered cars and trucks in California by 2035…

Barks Newsom:

“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change. … Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines.”

No serious person could believe that banning cars in California will have a perceptible effect on sea levels.

Electric cars are mainly powered by fossil fuels anyway, since wind and solar generate nowhere near enough electricity, and leftists consider nuclear energy politically unclean. Manufacturing the batteries for electric cars is environmentally devastating.

Banning regular cars is economically crippling tyranny for its own sake.

Damage to the economy isn’t a bug; it’s a feature. The Great Depression and FDR would have kept each other going indefinitely if World War II had not intervened. The economic crash of 2008 swept Barack Obama into power; his policies stalled recovery for years. Trump was coasting to reelection until overreaction to COVID-19 caused the economy to crash again. What is bad for the economy is good for the Democratic Party.

Stand by to see if California Democrats ban electricity next. By then, these people could control the whole country. Already, a far-left California Democrat is running for de facto president.
