California Governor Gavin Newsom’s actions during the coronavirus outbreak have earned him the nickname “Gruesome Newsom.”
But it turns out his worst act is yet to come.
And now America’s veterans will suffer at the hands of California’s Governor after his latest disgusting action.
One could argue that nowhere has the government response to the coronavirus been worse than in the state of California.
Radical leftist Governor Gavin Newsom and his socialist majority in Sacramento have made sure to take advantage of the crisis to advance their socialist vision.
And it’s the people of California who are suffering.
But, not content to merely shut down the economy, force thousands of businesses to leave the state, and force hard-working taxpayers to fund drug fueled parties for the homeless, Gruesome Newsom has gone even farther.
And this time his actions will directly hurt those men and women who gave their life to defending the very freedoms Newsom is stripping away from Californians.
The Golden State socialist wonder boy decided to shut down a veterans’ nursing home and giving the money allocated to the veterans, estimated to be about $80 million, instead to illegal aliens in California.
That’s right, illegal aliens, many of whom are hardened criminals and gang members, will be receiving money that was meant for America’s finest – our veterans.
Newsom’s plan is to give direct cash payments from the veterans’ money to illegals in California who weren’t eligible to receive any money from the massive federal coronavirus stimulus packages.
After finding out about the scheme, Judicial Watch, a conservative government watchdog group initially requested a temporary restraining order to stop Newsom from taking hard-earned taxpayer dollars from the veterans who fought for our country.
But the Judge ruled against the filing by Judicial Watch.
The group’s President Tom Fitton said, “It is astonishing that a court would allow a public official to ignore the law and spend tax money with no legal authority. Simply put, as the court seems to acknowledge, the governor has no independent legal authority to spend state taxpayer money for cash payments to illegal aliens. We will appeal the court’s manifest error.”
Released last week, Newsom’s budget proposed to “initiate the closure” of the Veterans Home of California-Barstow.
In total, the Governor’s revised budget would cut $6.1 billion from the state’s budget. The cuts are part of his plan to try and cover a $54.3 billion budget deficit.
While normally socialist like Newsom don’t care about such deficits, even he realizes this time they are being caused by his mandatory, statewide stay-at-home orders.
The order has cracked down on individual freedoms and forced most businesses to close putting more than 4.7 million people out of work.
While the Democrat-controlled legislature is expected to ram through the Governor’s changes to the budget, many Californians are rising up to fight both the crack downs on freedom, and schemes like this one.
