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…

From SF Gate:

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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
