Yes, you read that headline correctly. Once again, the Golden State is leading the nation in idiotic policies. The real question is, how many states wind up following the lead of Governor Gavin Newsom?
California just doesn’t get it. They are cool with rewarding lawbreakers.
From Washington Times:
California will cut $500 checks to undocumented immigrants struggling to pay bills because of the coronavirus pandemic, the state’s governor announced Wednesday, becoming the first jurisdiction to offer a rescue package to people who aren’t in the country legally.
State taxpayers will shell out $75 million from their Disaster Relief Fund, and another $50 million will come from a network of philanthropic foundations, Gov. Gavin Newsom said.
Undocumented immigrant adults can get a $500 check, with a maximum of $1,000 per household. Mr. Newsom anticipated about 150,000 people will get a check — a small fraction of the state’s population of perhaps 2 million.

Newsom on President Trump…
"Let me just be candid with you. I’d be lying to you to say that he hasn’t been responsive to our needs. He has."@GavinNewsom says @realDonaldTrump has been responsive to California's needs amid the coronavirus pandemic and says it would be dishonest to say otherwise. pic.twitter.com/cdwexiCRy9

Fauci said that we can start to "relax" social distancing once there are "no new cases, no deaths." Is it just me or is that completely batshit insane? That would keep us in a lockdown for many months or years. And if the virus becomes endemic, forever. How can that be the plan?

"I don't want to use artificial respiration. Save it for younger patients. I already had a good life," Suzanne Hoylaerts reportedly told doctors before passing away.

It seems that several times every century we have to be painfully reminded of the perfidy of communist parties. During the Cold War, we learned to disbelieve most Soviet assertions. We need to relearn that lesson with China . . . we should have never forgotten it.

Solid sign-off from @BretBaier tonight: “when the sun sets tonight, we will be one day closer to putting this all behind us. We’re all in this together.”
