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

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
