I find it quite amazing that Gov. Jerry Brown can spout the craziness that he does – deny the facts of the Californian economy, the scam of the last century that is Global Warming, and of course, the money-pit of taxpayer dollar corruption, the California bullet train – and just keep on keeping on like nothing is wrong.
Well now, one part of the delusion has come to an end.
On Friday, California Governor Jerry Brown sought federal help from President Trump by asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to declare “a major disaster” in California in light of the damage done by recent storms.
The East Bay Times reports: “Brown formally requested the declaration for the series of storms striking the state between Jan. 3 and Jan. 12.” He noted that “heavy rains, winds and snow, particularly in Northern California, left eight people dead and knocked out power to an estimated 1 million Californian homes and businesses.”
Brown’s request comes as Gov. Brown has challenged the Trump administration on climate change, immigration, Obamacare, and other issues.
Other Democrat officials in California have been open about their refusal to comply with Trump administration orders regarding illegal immigration. San Francisco’s police chief, sheriff, and mayor all made clear they would not enforce Trump’s immigration order, long before the order was taken to court. The San Francisco Police Department went so far as to cut ties with an FBI counter-terrorism task force in order to prevent officers from being involved in action that targeted illegals.
When it comes right down to it, sanctuary cities and states like California just can’t afford to live the lifestyles they do without federal aid. It’s the plain truth. It’s a lot easier to spend someone else’s money rather than the money that belongs to you – Which in the case of California, is nothing.
Good luck to Californians. You are all going to need it with Orville Dam busting open.
