California Governor Gavin Newsom Set to Implement New Tax — On Drinking Water

This is what California wanted!?

Californians got exactly what they asked for when they elected Gavin Newsom to replace Jerry Brown as governor.

No surprises, whatsoever.

For example, a new tax on water is headed the Golden State’s way…

In order to help disadvantaged communities obtain safe and affordable drinking water, California Governor Gavin Newsom is proposing a new statewide water tax.

In the newly-released 2019-20 budget, Newsom calls for the creation of a “safe and affordable drinking water fund” that would “enable the State Water Resources Control Board to assist communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, in paying for the short-term and long-term costs of obtaining access to safe and affordable drinking water.”

Before departing office, Jerry Brown made sure to defend his “sanctuary state” policies while disparaging the memory of deceased Police Officer Ronil Singh.

Outgoing Democrat California Gov. Jerry Brown decided to defend the state’s sanctuary laws in one of his final acts as governor, saying that Cpl. Ronil Singh’s death had “nothing to do” with them.

Brown told KXTV in one of his final interviews as California’s governor that he did not think California’s current “sanctuary state” law shielding illegal aliens from federal immigration authorities, SB 54, would lead to an increase in illegal alien crime.

Brown: “In this case, the individual had been arrested and actually convicted twice of driving under the influence and there was a warrant out for his arrest and no one picked him up, and he was arrested and brought in to jail and brought into jail before the sanctuary law was even enacted. ICE, the immigration people, could have gone out and gotten him. The police or the sheriff could have told the immigration service.

Right after news broke that Singh was murdered by a “soon-to-be-American-if-Dems-have-their-way,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on vacation.

While President Trump remained at the White House for Christmas, Pelosi was in Hawaii.

According to Pelosi, Trump doesn’t even know that Hawaii is part of the United States.

She actually said that.

On camera.

She has to be almost completely gone mentally to even think that one up, as evidenced by her daily brain freezes.

I observed the Christmas holiday for a few days in Hawaii. I cut in half the time I would have had with my family.

And the president may not know this, but Hawaii is part of the United States of America. Maybe he doesn’t realize that. I don’t know where the president observed the religious holiday of Christmas.

WATCH:

Ronil Singh was killed by Gustavo Perez Arriaga.

He remained on the loose for longer than expected but was eventually apprehended.

As mentioned above, Pelosi was vacationing in Hawaii while as Officer Singh’s brother cried his heart out at a press conference.

How messed up is that?

The NYPD sent this tweet honoring Officer Singh:

When Democrats win elections rights begin to disappear.

From Daily Caller:

Democrats will act “boldly” to bring “commonsense” gun control reforms to the table, Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.

Pelosi: “The new Democratic majority will act boldly and decisively to pass commonsense, life-saving background checks that are overwhelmingly supported by the American people.

With Pelosi’s support, Democrats coalesced to create a gun reform proposal that would require federal background checks on all gun sales, including private sales, Politico reported. Democratic California Rep. Mike Thompson, a Pelosi ally who says a bill for universal background checks will be introduced to Congress in early 2019, is spearheading the measure, according to Politico.

Thompson: “The American people want this. They’re way ahead of the Congress, they’re way ahead of the White House.

To the left, a border wall with Mexico is immoral. Abortion, however, is fine.

In other words, keeping lawbreakers out of the country so Americans have one less thing to worry about is bad, but literally committing murdering is acceptable.

Pelosi: “Does [Trump] want to have government closed forever? What’s this about?

Translation=> Trump is willing to shut down the government since Dems won’t give in to border wall funding, so Dems are prepared to keep government shut down for a long time.

Let’s hope that there won’t be a shutdown of the government. That’s a very bad thing to do. Maybe the president doesn’t grasp that, but that is very harmful to our country.

We’re not going for the $5 billion for the wall. We simply are not.

[Republicans] do not have the votes to pass the president’s proposal — $5 billion dollars, whatever it is — for the wall. Nothing is going to change in that regard.

WATCH:

Days before, Pelosi was asked: “Would you be willing support some degree of wall funding if you got a permanent bona fide solution on DACA?

Her response?

No.

Save conservative media!

‘The Palestinian Delusion’ Untangles a Web of Fashionable Lies (Opinion)

A thoughtful opinion piece…

Published

on

Chances are that if you know a college student, he or she believes these things: Israel exists on stolen land. Israelis are all just Europeans, anyway. The true inhabitants of the land that is called Israel today are the Palestinians, and their country is Palestine. The Israeli occupation is cruel, and marked by numerous human rights abuses perpetrated against the innocent Palestinians. One day, the occupation will end, and from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. But fervently and passionately believed falsehoods are still just falsehoods. And now, one of the nation’s foremost authorities on Islam and jihad, and author of the unique and groundbreaking The History of Jihad, has turned to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and delivered a concise but comprehensive refutation of all the false claims about this conflict that prevail today on college campuses and elsewhere. In the sharp and factual book The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, historian Robert Spencer untangles the web of lies that envelop all discussion of this conflict in the international media, and gives us the unvarnished (and often unwelcome) truth. One thing that nobody ever seems to wonder about is why this conflict is still going on so many decades after some of the most renowned and respected leaders in the world began to devote concerted efforts to ending it. Why has every one of the numerous attempts to bring peace failed, and failed consistently for seven decades now? In The Palestinian Delusion, Spencer answers that question and many others about this intractable dispute, and in the process, establishes definitively that Israel, contrary to the claims of so many among the academic, political, and media elites, not only has a right to exist, but has the best claim of any country to the supposedly…

Ilhan Omar: Hateful Rhetorical Is Synonymous With Republican Party, Which Inspires Terror Attacks

Is this what she truly believes?

John Salvatore

Ilhan Omar might’ve been dropped on her head. Not as a child, but as an adult. Okay, maybe both. For someone to be this ignorant about, well, everything, goes to show that too many people don’t understand politics or America, in general. The freshman lawmaker made some very silly comments on radically far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid’s morning program on Sunday. Go figure. But even for Ilhan, this stuff is pretty ridiculous. From Daily Wire: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Republicans on Sunday during an interview on far-left MSNBC, claiming that the Republican Party is synonymous with hateful and “sinful” rhetoric. […] “Yeah, I mean hate, sinful, [unintelligible] rhetoric is very dangerous and it’s becoming synonymous with the Republican Party,” Omar responded. “They have refused to condemn and distance themselves from members within their party that have threatened my life and the lives of others, that have caused the deaths of people in this country who follow their message, and have put their names, the names of our president, and many of the Republican leaders in their manifestos as they have taken innocent lives.” WATCH: WOW Watch Ilhan Omar say that Hate is becoming “synonymous with the Republican Party” I’m old enough to remember when some Congresswoman Tweeted some pretty Hateful things herself. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1206354899799334912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1206354899799334912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Filhan-omar-hate-sinful-rhetoric-is-synonymous-with-gop-gop-inspires-terror-attacks Israel can do no right in the eyes of Omar, Rashida Tlaib – any Democrat, really. Never mind that Palestine doesn’t really exist and that multiple nations have threatened to wipe the Jewish homeland off the face of the earth – that doesn’t matter to the left. What matters is that all things America – and American-ally – are badmouthed and trashed. WATCH: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says that Israel is not a democracy and is not an ally of the United States https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1163551579850412032?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163551579850412032&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F50811%2Fomar-claims-israel-not-democracy-or-ally-lies-ryan-saavedra
