CA Gov. Jerry Brown Asks Trump For Fed Funds To Cleanup Storm Damage

Gov. Jerry Brown asked President Donald Trump for federal funds Friday night to clean up damage a series of deadly storms cused last month that helped end California’s long drought.

Brown is asking the White House for $162 million in federal aid  to contend with storms that caused flash floods, power outages, and damage to various state-funded projects.

An “atmospheric river storm system” that unleashed days of “relentless heavy precipitation” caused the damage, the California Democrat wrote in a letter to Trump.

“The impacts associated with this series of storms were substantial and widespread, devastating much of California,” the letter reads.

Brown declared a state of emergency Jan. 23 in 49 counties of California’s 58 counties. He added three more counties to that tally Friday: Amador, Mono and Riverside.

The state’s second-largest reservoir — at nearly 100 percent capacity — is on the verge of bursting its banks after officials cut down use of the Oroville Dam out of concern the structurally weak dam could rupture.

The governor’s prickly relationship with the new commander-in-chief could hamper the funds. Their disagreements stem mostly from Trump’s temporary immigration ban and from his stance on global warming. The governor vowed to maintain California’s sanctuary state status.

Thought California wanted to secede anyway?  Maybe they should start figuring out NOW how to get by without federal funds.

Good thinking.. moonbean can't have it both ways .. get rid of the sanctuary cities and forget seceding .. and I am a Prunepicker that loves California, but hates the way the politicians are ruining it..

 On the Trump Train,  not moonbeams train to nowhere..

I agree.  And make them build a wall around it to keep all the KOOKS in--that means anyone who lives there.  If anyone wants into CA, I will help push them over the wall!  Good riddance!

NO WE don't..., JUST the living brain dead...., in California do....!! LOL

Moonbeam Brown is in a tough spot. He wants something from Trump....the question is 'what is he willing to give up to get what he wants?'  He just played right into Trump's hand.

HOW ABOUT HIM GIVING UP BEING GOVERNOR....!! THAT would make ME very happy....!!

I wouldn't give the Governor a dime. Any water facilities that are Federal plus local flood control districts should receive funds directly with the proviso of private contractors working on a bid and time constraint basis (as happened when an I-10 overpass in LA went down.}

Moonbeam may need half that money to support public employees retirement perks that are hundreds of billions in arrears.

They have refused to keep water storage facilities in good repair (including Federal) - like Oroville and Lake Isabella dams that must be kept under capacity for safety reasons. The nut jobs in SF even want to tear down the Hatch Hetchy dam that supplies great water to the SF Peninsula.

The bureaucrats have been offered existing, proven technology to reduce water demand and improve crops and landscaping.

At least the non-native Delta Smelt are having a field day.

I agree with Mr.Caruso.California is overflowing with millions of people on welfare. Let them get out and work to clean it all up.Ask the Hillary foundation for the money. She has billions,or even Soros who funds your b.m.movement and other various stupid,pointless riots.Take care of yourselves. You are your own nation after all,right-???

The people of California have been the Gimme Pigs of a huge societal experiment, that drastically failed, but they are still screeming Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, I need it Gimme, Gimme, Gimme. Instead of working to make California and the United States a better place to live, all they can think of is themselves, including the biggest Gimme Pig of them all, Moon Beam Brown !

How does it feel to WANT?

Give up the sanctuary cities and be a good federal citizen state, deport 1/3 of your states population back to mexico and then maybe we could talk about dropping some coin down your way.  Better yet put your citizens to work cleaning up their own state for a change.

Absolutely right!

 Excuse me, you want to secede, right?  You want to disobey federal law, right?

California wants to do its own thing, right?

Don't make me ANGRY

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
