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.

It appears Brown will maintain Ca. sanctuary state status there is a slim to none chance Ca. will receive any funding. Then to admit they have a structurally weak dam that could burst? Why didn't Brown fix the problem with said dam that endangers lives and drought problem. Brown is more concerned with programs for illegals than fixing infrastructure to save lives. Jerry Brown you fly in the face of convention and expect Trump to ball you out. You are one pathetic Governor. As the most populous state in the nation, you"re smart, how about a 50%property tax increase, a massive right to work tax in Ca.and put the money where it is supposed to go. Any concept is foreign to you, other than call the the Feds. for money. You made your bed, lie in it.

Gotta pay for all those public employee perks. So much for the public servant who now makes far more than the poor slob who has to pay for it.

Funny, it all started with the needed Republican idea of Prop 13 to freeze taxes at a low level. It gutted local school and municipal coffers who turned toe State who turned to an all too willing Federal Government.

Of course, no one saw Prop 10 on the same ballot that gave the banks free reign in a once usury controlled state. All the tax savings that once  - a bit too luxuriously - supported schools and infrastructure went to pay usurious interest rates. A totally negative outcome for the poor taxpayer.

Interest rate increases far outstripped the taxes saved by Prop 13.

The only ones left to suffer are the local governments and schools which now are blackmailed by the Feds. The State in the meantime runs off to become Mexico while pushing gay "marriage". abortion on demand and so-called carbon taxes to "save the planet."

Talk about having big balls. Wow!  Definitely puts Trump in the drivers seat though. 

NO DEAL....first get rid of sanctuary state the we will talk

Trump just say No! Stop bringing illegals and wasting 24.1 million dollar taking care of them instead of its own citizens. Shut down planned parenthood and you would have money fix our roads!

Give California NO money!

We should give it to him on ONE CONDITION!

He does away with "ALL sanctuary cites in the state of CA. and abides by all laws as it pertains to illegals." Turns ALL illegal's names, addresses and records into ICE and cooperates with the Fed's in helping to round them up. Reimburses the tax payers for ALL monies paid out to illegals for ALL benefits that they have received from the tax payers from any other state. NO excuses or bargaining. 

Heck, with CA. being the worlds fourth largest economy, they can afford to do this!!! 

He needs more funds for his new transportation system to transport illegals from sanctuary city to sanctuary city !  I guess he has to spread his voter base around ?

Soooo, what about your calexit Jerry boy. Better learn to stand on your own if you want to pick and choose what laws to enforce.
Tell kalifornia to get help from Mexico, The new cofiderate state of kalifornia, can go straight to hell. No federal dollars until kalifornia begins to repatriate. End your illegal voter registration with state drivers license, end the sanctuary cities movement that is highly unamerican. If the left wants to take care of the world's lazy then move to Mexico and babysit them there in the shit hole of a country. All of this crap is delay tactics to further overload Americas judical system while the communist are pounding nails in our coffin.
President Trump, end this madness encourage Congress to pass legislation of patriotism concerning our historical national symbolism beginning with no raising of a foreign flag on US soil and no American flag discretion. This would include all pre Constitutional period historic flags.
America needs to get back to bands playing patriotic music in our parks and on county court house grounds on Saturday evenings. In South some counties still practice these tributes to our God or flags our Veterans and those that helped develope this great nation. It is time to thank the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob for the greatest nation ever responsible for Freedom and Liberty. If we do not pass this on we will never retain but continue to see Americas decline.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

Live Free or Die

Hey Jerry, Go Pound Sand~

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
