Latest Outrages by Gavin Newsom

Let’s see, how else could Gavin Newsom express his contempt for the citizens who elected him, not to mention for American sovereignty and rule of law? I know: by putting illegal aliens on state boards.

Via American Thinker:

In California, seems it’s not enough that foreign nationals who’ve just spilled over the U.S. border from the south can get free education, free health care, free housing, and all that — now it looks as though locals may just find themselves lorded over by foreign nationals with zero loyalty to the United States making policy, now that Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed SB225, a bill to allow illegals to “serve” (and be paid) on state boards that make policy in California.

Even Jerry “Governor Moonbeam” Brown vetoed this insult to the concept of American citizenship. But Newsom knows that in current California politics, it’s all about making sure that no one could conceivably outflank you on the left. This is achieved in part by openly pandering to illegal aliens at the expense of American citizens.

Another way is by spending public money with arrogant abandon on leftist priorities. That money is acquired by any means possible. Californians pay excessively high gasoline taxes to maintain the highways. Where does the money actually go? Wherever Newsom and friends want it to go.

American Thinker again:

Last November, Democrats hailed California voters’ rejection of Proposition 6, a law to scrap the state’s 2017 massive gas taxes. They crowed that Californians were glad to pay five bucks at the pump when the rest of the U.S. average was half that. Big reason? Because $3 billion of those takings would save the state’s tumbledown highways and go to repair roads and bridges. The rejection came after a voters showed strong signs of wanting to get rid of the tax until a barrage of television ads ran, warning that any vote to repeal the gas tax would mean the state’s decrepit highways and bridges would go wanting for repair funds.

First the bait, then the switch:

On Sept. 20, in a little noted maneuver, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order to divert the tax cash away from crumbling highway repair to greenie political pet projects instead.

Money voters approved to fix the highways will now go to rail projects. For ideological reasons, progressives like rail projects and don’t like cars and trucks.

At least Californians can thank Newsom for driving home a fundamental lesson. Money is fungible, and Big Government is already confiscating more than enough of it. No matter what they say they will spend the money on, never approve of raising taxes, and cut them whenever you can.

Newsom’s betrayal is a form of embezzlement. But he will pay no price at the polls. He doesn’t represent California. He represents foreign nationals and sheer moonbattery. People will vote for him anyway, for reasons impossible for a sane mind to comprehend.
