Gavin Newsom, the Poster Child of What a Fool Believes

WhirlyGirl1200.jpg

Here is what interests California Governor Gavin Newsom more than running his own state: the ability to preen before cameras and spout lies, unchallenged, across the country.

After the Democrat Supermajority shut down a gas tax relief effort in June, we are once again experiencing rising prices. Californians pay $2.00 more for their gas than the rest of the nation, thanks to taxes that do nothing but bankrupt the taxpayer. The so-called stimulus for gas relief that was floated in lieu of a tax suspension hasn’t arrived in our mailboxes yet, and doesn’t even cover everyone in the state (quelle surprise).

Along with the record high inflation that is spiking goods and services, the fentanyl epidemic is hitting this state in brutal fashion, killing children.

And I don’t have to mention the homelessness and the rampant crime.

California’s got some real problems up in this piece, but Newsom has decided he is needed elsewhere.

First it was off to New York, for Climate Week NYC, where he was a featured speaker and gave closing remarks. Newsom bragged that California is leading on the climate change front, pointed to California’s drought, wildfires, and record heat as proof that a climate crisis exists <insert *eyeroll* emoji>, and when asked about the phenomenon of the California Adios, Newsom said with a straight face that all those people were leaving because of Visa policies in the Trump administration.

You cannot make this stuff up.

Trump hasn’t been in office for two years, but he continues to live rent free in Newsom’s head.

WATCH:

Newsom also said that the border debate is “made up.”

Really?! Hair Gel, please! The uptick of fentanyl deaths among teenagers in California are from drugs coming over the Southern border and entering the state. And Lord only knows how much worse human trafficking throughout the state has become.

No one is making up dead or missing children, along with their grieving parents. But Newsom thinks it’s a Republican plot.

Since he didn’t get enough attention in New York, Newsom jetted off to Texas, for the Texas Tribune Fest in Austin. Mind you, Texas is on the list of states that California has banned from official government travel.

So, as a government official, why is Newsom traveling to a banned state for any reason? Better question: who is paying for this and his security detail, who are also paid from the state government’s coffers?

But Newsom insists that his voice is needed to point out “truth.” To combat Republican lies—especially in Texas!

If Newsom was not a politician and an elected representative of another state, one would call him a busybody and tell him to mind his own business.

As a governor supposedly running for reelection, Newsom’s business should be the state of California, which is currently in freefall. Instead, Newsom is mounting billboards and making video statements on everything that Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are doing for their own constituents.

Newsom is obsessed with what books are allowed to be read in Texas, and whether DeSantis broke the law by sending illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, while neglecting the ulcerous issues that exist in California.

No, governor. What is sick is your total disdain for the persecuted men, women, and children who suffer under your lack of attention to your job.

Unlike the bubble where Newsom lives, the rest of the nation is seeing this delusional, arrogant fool and his behavior, and they are laughing. In fact, the New York Post has deemed that California has replaced Florida as the butt of something in our nation:

Or, more accurately, it’s a joke. Currently, the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, is trying to start a fight with the state of Florida. This week, he even challenged Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis to a televised debate. But Newsom can’t even convince his own family that California has the superior model. It was recently revealed that, during the pandemic, Newsom’s parents-in-law not only moved from California to Floridathey gave money to The Friends of Ron DeSantis — a SuperPAC dedicated to re-electing the governor their son-in-law has made his nemesis. That one had to hurt.

The story of Newsom’s in-laws is common — and understandable. Florida’s unemployment rate is 2.7%. California’s is 4.1%. Florida’s energy grid works. California’s does not. Florida showed that it could make responsible decisions throughout the pandemic. California not only screwed up its response; its leaders were repeatedly caught breaking their own rules. In August, Florida announced that it had added twice the number of new jobs than the average US state. I could go on.

No need to. We are living the reality every day, and dealing with the delusions of this dunderheaded madman, who believes himself a savior and a statesman.

Here’s some recent happenings that show he is neither.

#BREAKING CA Assembly votes to keep the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant online until at least 2030.

It’s an overwhelming & bipartisan 67-3 vote.

It was supposed to go offline in 2025 but @GavinNewsom asked for its life to be extended to help keep CA’s lights on.

Despite his repeated denials, spouted with a backstage wink, Newsom plans to be president, and is feathering his nest for a 2024 run.

Not on my watch.

For Californians, take a look at your tax dollars at work as His Hairfulness gallivants across the country. See with your own eyes what little regard your governor has for the state of this state.
