SACRAMENTO, Kalifornia (PNN) - May 17, 2021 - Politicians in trouble frequently wheel out the freebies ahead of a tough election. Kalifornia's fascist Governor Gavin Newsom, however, is taking it to the extreme.
Seems he's not all that confident that Democrats will be able to rig him into victory to keep him in office in this year's coming recall referendum. Internals must be horrible.
That is why he's now holding out monster goodie bags to angry voters as a last-ditch bribe to secure their votes.
This week, Newsom began a statewide tour to brag about a $75.7 billion state surplus that is burning a hole in his recall jeans. That surplus alone is larger than the total expenditures of 44 other states in 2020. Combining substantial capital-gains revenues from the bank accounts of Big Tech billionaires and an embarrassing amount of federal stimulus funds, to the tune of $371 billion in total payments, the governor is taking credit for the windfall. Promising to hand out wads of cash and pay off overdue rent and utility bills while hoping middle-class voters will forget Newsom’s cavalier statewide lockdowns over the past year reeks of bribery.
It comes from a one-time slush fund surplus coming from the federal government, courtesy of pretender Joe Biden and his congressional Democrats, and ironically, as Sacramento legislators are proposing tax hikes on normal taxpayers.
Newsom has a recall referendum coming in November, so like Hugo Chavez, he's wheeling out the free washing machines and bags of beans, as Hugo and other corrupt Latin autocrats used to do in order to "win" elections.
These are nothing but BandAids placed on the festering economic wounds he's inflicted on the state over the last year, through high taxes, lockdowns, and terrorist pig thug cop defundings, all problems which now require tourniquets.
Does anybody think the billions of dollars for the homeless he's proposing are actually going to fix homelessness in the state? It should employ a lot of bureaucrats and probably backfill some bloated public pensions, as has been the story in the past.
Where is he going to get the permits to build all these free houses for the homeless, given the state's other NIMBY-inspired laws. Malibu?
That's just one problem, and there are a ton of others.
The fact that Newsom also wrecked the state's economy through his fanatic lockdowns while red-state governors showed real judgment and leadership in doing all they could to keep their state's economies open is another strike against this clown. Now we have this budget-bankrupting spendfest to put the cherry on top of his rotten cake. He's so bad even Caitlyn Jenner looks like a better potential governor than Newsom.
Throw him out.
