The Trump administration has rejected California’s request for disaster relief funds to tackle wildfires and to help residents displaced by a string of fires that have impacted the state.
“The request for a Major Presidential Disaster Declaration for early September fires has been denied by the federal administration,” said Brian Ferguson, a spokesman for the governor’s office of emergency services.
President Donald Trump encouraged Republicans to “fight hard” after California’s attorney general and chief elections officer order GOP officials to stop using private ballot collection containers that had been marked as “official” dropboxes to collect ballots.
President Donald Trump claimed, with no evidence, that California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) will make sure Democrats win the state in the upcoming general election thanks to “a pure Sleepy Joe Democrat firm to count and ‘harvest’ votes.”
Endorsements can be an extremely powerful thing during election season. They can be especially formidable if they come from someone within the opposite party. This was obvious during the DNC when prominent Republicans like John Kasich, Christine Whitman and Susan Molinari endorsed Joe Biden.
The Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Congressional Committee, and the California Republican Party filed a joint lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) over his executive orders to use mail-in ballots for the November election.
Donald Trump this morning tweeted his strong opposition to California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plans to suspend the death penalty in the state.
“Defying voters, the Governor of California will halt all death penalty executions of 737 stone cold killers,” Trump tweeted. “Friends and families of the always forgotten VICTIMS are not thrilled, and neither am I!”
After their massive state-wide victories in the November 6 midterm elections Democrats returned to the state capitol in Sacramento with both a strong mandate and a clear mission: to fight everything President Donald Trump does or tries to do.
Brown is the Democratic California Governor and he said Sunday morning that he believes the science surrounding the deadly wildfires will become so evident that skeptics will no longer be able to avoid the truth of the devastating impacts of climate change.
The California Republican Party is now dead. The most recent evidence of this appeared last night as California Democrats completed their sweep of the congressional delegation in Orange County. Democrat Gil Cisneros defeated Young Kim, a Republican, to capture a fourth seat in a county that had once been one of the most conservative in the nation.
Trump is going to seek to revoke Obama era standards that gave California that power to fight smog and auto emissions.
California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom easily won the state’s primary for governor on Tuesday and will face a Republican businessman endorsed by President Donald Trump in the November general election.
These are dark days for the Republican Party in California. Last week the Sacramento Bee reported that the GOP is behind both the Democratic Party and Independents in the number of registered voters. Last month we reported that there may be no Republican candidate for either governor or U.S. Senator on the ballot in November’s general election after the primaries are held tomorrow.
There is an ongoing political debate in the United States about which political party is more fiscally responsible. Historically Republicans claimed they were, because they believed in lower taxes and lower spending. They accused Democrats of being the “tax and spend” party, and this attack line helped the GOP take political control of Congress, the presidency and two-thirds of state governments.
The death toll from the deadliest rash of wildfires in California history has risen to 43, after a 17-year-old girl who was badly burned in the fires earlier this month died at a hospital, officials said on Monday.
"The leader of the free world can’t continue to use language that legitimizes the actions of extremists groups that promote hate."
If the legislation becomes law, it stands to reason that Trump won't be allowed on the California ballot in the 2020 presidential election.
“Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Ca.), facing angry constituents at town hall, calls GOP health care bill ‘bipartisan..both parties working together’,” even though not a single Democrat voted for it.
“California could very well become an organized non-payer. They could recommend non-compliance with the federal tax code.”
California voters beat back an assault on their intelligence and social consciousness by Republicans and corporations to promote the general welfare of the people.
