‘The California Way’ Isn’t As Rosy As Gov. Newsom Touted In State Of The State

California Gov. Gavin Newsom told a few whoppers during his 18-minute State of the State Tuesday evening. Listening to him, someone from another state might mistake California for a state with low unemployment, affordable housing, cheap gas and affordable energy, superior public schools and universities, treatment and services for homeless living on the streets, and a state fully re-opened from COVID lockdowns and mask mandates.

Au contraire mon frere. Newsom’s speech was mostly a rehash of the last few years. And he seemed in a hurry to get it over.

Gov. Newsom glaringly said nothing at all about the drought and need for more water and reservoirs, which voters already approved and paid for through water bonds.

The Globe and the California Policy Center live tweeted under #GovGavGab thoughts and fact checks during Newsom’s blessedly short speech.

Newsom took an early jab at Donald Trump without even saying Trump’s name:

“California does democracy like nowhere else in the world. No other place offers opportunity to so many from so many different backgrounds. But we can’t take our democracy for granted.

Authoritarian and illiberal impulses aren’t just rising overseas. They’ve been echoing here at home for some time. We might not have strongmen quite literally waging war in our country, we are plagued by agents of a national anger machine, fueling division, weaponizing grievance.”

“The California Way means rejecting old binaries and finding new solutions to big problems.”

As for “authoritarian and illiberal impulses,” Newsom is the archetype as he clings to his 2-years of emergency powers, ruling by executive orders, dissing the State Legislature, and extension of the State of Emergency even as COVID dwindles.

One of the biggest whoppers: Newsom praised job creation in California. Yet California has one of the worst unemployment rates of any state in the entire country.

Gov. Newsom said “California experienced far lower COVID death rates than any other large state.”

“No state, no state took bolder steps to protect public health and human life over the last two years,” Newsom said.

Our lockdowns, distressing as they were, saved lives. Our mask mandates, our mask mandates saved lives. Your choices saved lives. California experienced far lower COVID death rates than any other large state. Fewer than Texas, Ohio. Fewer than Florida — 35 percent fewer, to be exact.”

Yet, as the California Policy Center pointed out, “California and Florida had similar COVID case trends during the Omicron wave, even though California had significantly more restrictions, including the statewide mask mandate. LA, which had the most restrictions, had the highest case rate of any county in CA.”

    Gavin Gruesome is a pink pantied arrogant, patrician. He rules like a fat, overweight king. He is an anal carbuncle on Kalifornia’s orifice. He is a 4 King loser who thinks he should be worshipped..
