WTH? Is the Governor of California a king now?

Recommended Posts

So by "executive order" the Governor (king) of California has banned all gas vehicles by 2035. I'm sure this will work out just as well as their green electric energy policy that has resulted in extended blackouts and power outages. Gosh, can't wait for Democrats to impose ever more of their quality of life destroying anti-freedom dictats on the rest of America.

Their ridiculous green policies are also why they’re fighting raging wildfires and droughts and mudslides!!

“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” Newsom said in a statement released Wednesday morning. “Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse — and create more days filled with smoky air. Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines.”

 

So gas-powered cars create wildfires, huh? How about electric cars, the way they require electricity which is obtained by damming up more rivers, diverting more precious water and leaving less to fight fires with?

 

It's funny how the left acts as if Trump is a dictator, when people like Newsom, Cuomo, and Canada's Trudeau seem to be able to make up new laws as they see fit as well.

That question was never asked of anyone moving out of CA. At least not since 1975......:lol:

This is NOT YOUR WEEK TO DRIVE, Rye. 

 

I remember in 1973, during the oil embargo, gas every other day, depending on your license plate number. 

 And IIRC, five (5) gallons at a time. 

 

I guess with electric cars, you get so many watts?

Maybe they are going to use all the BS coming out of their elected representatives as feed stock for the natural gas power plants that would otherwise be shut down because they are no longer allowing the importation of fossil fuels. :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

Sad to say... the diseases that crawl out of CA and NY eventually make their way into the other states.

ID now has red flag laws in their senate.
MO is trying those two on gun charges for defending their homes.
AZ is trying to ban semis of most types.
IL has driven most of their FFLs out of business.
TX almost elected Beto the Fake Mexican.
NV is preparing to enact more strict gun control
GA nearly elected Stacey "The Show" Abrams
FL nearly elected Ron "Swings Both Ways" Gillum.
VA is raping gun rights as fast as Northam can swing it.

If the GOP and gun owners do not turn out 100% for this election, we have only ourselves to blame.
We need 4 more years of Trump... another originalist on the SCOTUS when Thomas retires, etc.
SCOTUS will be the last stand for America as we knew it.

Why were they charged in the first place?
Next time, there may not be a 2A friendly AG

They're going to buy it from other states that are struggling to meet their own power needs as it is.

Man's a joke.  And many of us refer to him as "Emperor Newsom."  Personally, I think he's the reincarnation of Emperor Norton.  

 

I wish I had Photoshop...  I'd love to put his face on Emperor Norton's body.

 

How Emperor Norton rose to power - SFChronicle.com

 

I almost choked a few weeks ago when he referred to California as "a Nation State."

 

Can ya just picture all those battery powered fire trucks trundling up to the woods to put out the fires caused by "climate change?"  :wacko:

 

Here's a real eye-opener:  Link

Just wait till all those giant batteries start going bad after about 8 years.  The cars won't be worth paying $7,000 for new batteries so will be junked.  That's going to be a huge disposal problem for all those lithium batteries build into the car.  

 

And what about all those traffic accidents involving lithium powered vehicles.

 

What happens if you cut open a lithium battery?
The electrolyte will boil and possibly catch fire, which will then cause a runaway condition, until all the electrolyte is consumed. Do not open a LiPo battery as the reaction is very fast, will catch fire, and may result in an explosion.

So I was talking to Sassparilla Kid a while ago and asked if he'd heard about Newsom's executive order.

 

"The one banning propane?"

 

"Huh?  What propane ban??"

 

Ten minutes later I received an email from my propane company:   :(

Because our Governor said if they were convicted, he would give them full pardons. 

Our Governor is very pro gun and the main reason we are Constitutional carry state.

I believe “executive orders” apply only to those in his direct chain of command;  state employees in the executive branch.  Am I correct on that?  Legislators make laws, not the governor (or President for that matter).  Please educate me if I am wrong but that point was made pretty forcefully in my 10th grade Civics class.  If I am correct, most of California should be responding with a 3rd digit salute.

The only way to stop this stuff is for Californians to enact a ban on democrats starting in November.  

What do you suppose the odds of that are?

An executive making a law by himself and using police power to enforce it on the entire population is the definition of tyranny.  I don’t think it would survive a challenge in court.  Even in California.

It is- a 3rd World nation-state.

 

Yeah, yeah, yeah- it's the 5th largest economy in the world, full of resources, feeds billions, etc....  That just means that there's no excuse for it.

 

That's why the failures and it's potential 3rd world banana republic status is so marked.

 

Environmental catastrophes caused by appeasing groups politically affiliated with the current regime, laws and policies based on doctrine, failures in basic services (like power), failures in infrastructure caused by neglect (that power line caused fire last year), filth in the streets (Edinburgh was cleaner in the 1000's than San Francisco in the 2000's), no-go zones ruled by criminal factions, graft, corruption, cronyism at all levels of government,.... the list goes on. 

 

Any of that sound familiar?

 

And that's what these Leftist windowlickers want to spread EVERYWHERE.

First you have to get a court to agree that you have standing.

Courtesy of my wife.  I sent her your photo and one of Newsom I looking in about the same direction. Good enough?  Or too subtle?  

She said the real trick was matching the graininess and grayscale of the Emperor Norton photo.
