Is Jerry Brown now President of California?

Is Jerry Brown now President of California?

Targeting Trump, he threatens to launch satellites and demands offshore drilling bans.

If California’s general election votes were ignored, President-Elect Donald Trump would have won the popular vote as well as the Electoral College count.

Perhaps inspired by the “different direction” taken by its citizens, California Governor Jerry Brown feels inspired to conclude his political career by taking the role of President, an office for which he campaigned several times during his lengthy career? This would align with development of the the California secession movement.

For example, I reported that Trump apparently plans to eliminate all climate change research conducted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as part of his fight against climate alarmist policies.

The proposal launched an epic rant from Brown during a meeting with scientists focused on climate change, which included an homage to his nickname….Governor Moonbeam. He even threatened to launch California-funded satellites!

“We’ve got the scientists, we’ve got the lawyers and we’re ready to fight. We’re ready to defend,” he said to boisterous applause at the American Geophysical Union conference in San Francisco.

….He reminded the scientists that he earned his nickname, Governor Moonbeam, in his first governorship for proposing that the state launch its own communications satellite, and even had an ex-astronaut on his payroll as a space adviser. “I didn’t get that moniker for nothing,” Brown said.

“And, if Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellite,” he added. “We’re going to collect that data.”

He said if the federal government “starts messing with” the state’s renowned science facilities, such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, “I am the president of the Board of Regents. I am going to say, ‘Keep your hands off. That laboratory is going to pursue good science.’ ”

What’s old is new again! Brown’s 1980 presidential platform was: Protect the Earth, serve the people, explore the universe.

Brown isn’t stopping at satellite launches, either. With the nominations of Rick Perry at the Department of Energy and Scott Pruitt at the Environmental Protection Agency, Trump has sent a clear signal that fossil fuels are a safe and profitable fuel source that should be utilized by this nation.

In response, California reporter Katy Grimes reports that Brown just demanded that President Barack Obama to permanently ban new offshore oil and gas drilling.

…In an attempt to lock in environmental protections before President-Elect Donald Trump takes office in January, Brown sent a letter this week to the president saying that allowing any new oil and gas drilling would be detrimental to climate change goals and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

President Barack Obama last month released a plan to ban any new drilling off the coasts of California, Oregon or Washington until 2022.

A six-year ban on oil and gas drilling wasn’t enough for California Gov. Jerry Brown, who will be gone from the Governor’s office in 2018.

For the sake of the prosperity of this state and the quality of life for Californians, let’s hope these efforts end in complete failure.

Many of those renowned facilities are Federal along with Federal land and installations plus millions of Americans now “threatened” by a rogue administration. Bringing California to heel is not a bad idea. The Left enjoys the good life at everyone elses’ expense…. but.. if they wish to play rough… the Anaconda plan revised for the 21st century would be nice.

Where will you get the money to put a satellite in space Jerry, you can’t even build that precious Bullet Train without federal help. It will be even harder when Trump puts the stop on all that help for illegal aliens you want to keep in La La Land.

You taking on Trump is really a bad idea.

Where’s Moonbeam going to launch California’s space program? The Air Force has a nice site near Lompoc, but it only does southern trajectories (for circumpolar orbits), which have limited uses. CA could set something up on some Pacific island, like the Euros do, but nobody is likely to do that if CA can’t pay the bills, which it can’t.

I don’t think Moonbeam has thought this whole thing through. Too bad; it has much to recommend it.

    Elon Musk is a slavering progressive loon; I’m sure he’d be happy to let Moonbeam launch his moonshot from one of “his” floating launch pads.

    Yeah, you’re talking about Vandenberg AFB, which, of course, is Federal property. Even if Moonbeam did have his precious little satellite, there ain’t a chance in hell that Trump & Mattis would even allow it to be launched from VAFB.

    As for asking the Russians, I doubt Putin would be open to the idea since the Democrats have been dissing him lately. Oh well, there’s always the Chinese…..

I think someone should explain to him that Governor Moonbeam was not meant to be a compliment.

I can no longer tell the difference between this world, and The Onion.

The clown responsible for setting in motion the destruction of California so many years ago was re-elected to save it. What a bad joke Jerry Brown has been.

If California does launch a satellite, maybe Brown can be on the rocket, like so many other monkeys that were launched up and away at the beginning of other space programs. Hopefully he’ll take the Polosis and the Obamas with him.

Moonbeam – the next Major Tom.

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles and never frowns
Soon I will be president

Carter power will soon go ‘way
I will be Führer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school

California Über Alles
California Über Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles California

“California Uber Alles,” The Dead Kennedys.

Moonbeam is, and has always been, a joke.

and how much evil “greenhouse gasses” would these satellite launches release into Mother Gaia’s poor atmosphere.

and why does he get to drive around in an ancient Mopar, polluting the air, instead of in one of those POC electric cars he wants everyone else to use?

“’And, if Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellite,’ he added. ‘We’re going to collect that data.’”

I think it’s wonderful the leftists are offering to subsidize sorely needed naval training by building the expensive targets.

He’s behind the times.

I think many of you are looking at this wrong. I applaud Brown for wanting *his state* to move forward the way they think is best. I would hope Trump would give him any permissions needed, and would even make federal land/facilities available to California for their endeavors. (assuming no or limited cost to the Feds)
This is the *point* of federalism….let Cali be Cali. If they want to send up satellites, ban autos, build bullet trains, etc etc… good on them.
We are supposed to be supportive of states rights….states doing what states want to do…. that means we need to support them doing the stupid stuff too….

After watching this rant and the one (the same?) at a recent meeting, I’ve come to the conclusion he is deranged and should be removed from office. He raves on about the climate hoax and satellites. He ignores the request for a cost/benefit study on the horrid AB32. He thinks we have a surplus when Kalifornia is 1.5 trillion in debt due to pensions and the sheeple voting “yes” on every bond issue on the ballot. Businesses are leaving the State with key people following along. Remove him from office, one way or another!

Soviet Socialist Republic of Moonbeam
has a nice ring to it.
