Newsom holds cops and firefighters hostage to get federal cash to hand out to illegals
California governor Gavin Newsom continues to prove he is an evil tyrant willing to use any and all measures to achieve his goals.
Most recently, despite a $54-plus-billion budget deficit, he decided to hand out stimulus relief money to illegal invaders. As soon as word got out about this giveaway for those whose first act on American soil was to break the law, phone lines were overloaded and ultimately crashed as illegals called to find out how they could get their money.
No matter that he's throwing $500 chunks of money at every illegal invader in his sanctuary state — Newsom is demanding a federal bailout claiming that the feds have a "social responsibility" and a "moral and ethical obligation."
And if the federal government doesn't step up and pay, police and firefighters will be the first to go because, apparently, in Newsom's world, that's logical and is just how it goes.
Why are first responders first up on the chopping block?
It makes no sense unless you want to use the most critical people and services as hostages. That's exactly what Newsom is doing.
All the while, he's setting the table to frame the GOP as heartless. No sooner had he made his lofty claims about "moral responsibility" than he pre-emptively accused the GOP of depriving first responders of jobs if the federal government doesn't pay. The Patriot Daily reports:
The next time they want to salute and celebrate our heroes, our first responders, our police officers and firefighters, consider the fact that they are the first ones that will be laid off by cities and counties[.]
Newsom's budget has other provisions for trying to close the budget gap, but eliminating first responder jobs is a sick threat he will keep front and center as it affords him the most leverage to get what he wants.
The GOP had better hold firm. Blue-state bailouts will open yet another door to stimulus dollars that rack up trillions in debt while allowing blue states off the hook for financial mismanagement and egregious public policies.
As a general rule of thumb, I believe the United States does not pay ransom money for hostages. Let's not start now.
