On 1st day, Gov. Gavin Newson proposes free healthcare for illegal immigrants under 26

On 1st day, Gov. Gavin Newson proposes free healthcare for illegal immigrants under 26

2 journalists ejected from his inauguration as citizens gear up for border security-based “Yellow Vest” demonstrations.

Gavin Newsom, former mayor of disease-ridden San Francisco and Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s Lieutenant Governor, began his reign governorship in true progressive style.

For starters, 2 journalists covering the inauguration were ejected. Though one was disruptive, the second was not, but was associated with citizen groups battling the state’s sanctuary policies.

Kevin Kurson, covering the event for the California Globe, filed this report:

[T]wo of the security guards – the woman and one of the men – came back to eject another credentialed journalist, apparently simply because he appeared to know [Benjamin Bergquam, the disruptive reporter]. (Both were wearing the logos of Frontline America, a Trump-supporting website.)

The second fellow hadn’t said a single word or disrupted the proceedings in any way. He was just sitting there with his iPhone stabilizer and headset. His ejection appeared to be entirely based on some kind of association with the first fellow.

That’s not a good look for the capital press people.

Another interesting element is that not a single one of the 20 or so reporters in the immediate area spoke up in defense of the second ejectee. Myself included. Speaking only for myself, the reason I failed to speak up is that I was so startled by the turn of events. When you cover enough of these things you’re used to seeing ordinary protesters stand up and sometimes get ejected but never journalists.

Once ensconced in office, Newsom proposed several #Resistance-based policies, including covering the healthcare costs of young illegal immigrants.

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced sweeping proposals to tackle the state’s healthcare needs shortly after taking office on Monday, outlining a dramatic Medi-Cal expansion that would cover young immigrant adults who are in the U.S. illegally, require that all consumers in the state carry health insurance and increase subsidies for middle-class families to help those who need it.

The Day 1 announcement was as much a rebuke to the Trump administration as it was an attempt by Newsom to make good on his campaign promise to fix a fragmented healthcare system that leaves many priced out or underinsured.

…California would be the first state to cover immigrants without legal status who are younger than 26 through Medi-Cal, the state’s health program for people with low incomes. California already covers undocumented children until they turn 19, with Newsom’s plan increasing the age cut-off to mirror that of the Affordable Care Act, which allows young adults to stay on a parent’s health insurance plan until turning 26.

You know who else is a dashing, young politician who thumbed his nose at President Donald Trump? Emmanuel Macron. And, now, like the French president, Newsom is inspiring “Yellow Vest” activism already.

However, instead of climate change, border security is the inspiration behind this look.

Given that Governor Newsom promised to remove the California National Guard from the border, and that he seems more interested in helping illegal immigrants than California tax-payers, I suspect we will be seeing “Yellow Vests” rallies before his first year in office concludes.

And President Trump’s address Tuesday, which inspired this commentary, should be epic.

The comparison to the fluffy Macron is spot on! Good for the yellow vests!

California has a Democrat super-majority. This will pass.

…outlining a dramatic Medi-Cal expansion that would cover young immigrant adults who are in the U.S. illegally, require that all consumers in the state carry health insurance and increase subsidies for middle-class families to help those who need it.

Ok, just change the word consumers to taxpayers and you can see where this is going.

    BTW, I don’t believe that this proposed system would help middle class families… Only those on entitlements.. the middle class would take it on the chin.. again.. maybe for the last time……..and down for the count.

      As Victor Davis Hansen points out… the middle class is being hollowed out… and Dem politicos see this as a good thing… getting riff-raff out of state … with only the super rich and powerful above and the lower class drones to service them.

      Once a population realizes that hey can vote themselves entitlements, the system is all but dead and revolution is on the way.

Why does California’s insurance markets need fixed? I thought Obamacare was the end-all, be-all for insurance.

The Democrats and their media stooges are in a perpetual “hold my beer” moment as they try to out do each bit of craziness with even more craziness!!

Yeah thats a great idea…lets cover the costs of the millions of illegal immigrants in CA which will only ensure resources for LEGAL immigrants and citizens are further reduced so that Americans get less care then they would otherwise receive!

The Democrat party…representing Illegal Immigrants now and in to the future! Could be, should be, their campaign slogan for 2020.

After watching Newsom swish around some more, I do believe he would lick himself all over if he could.

Refresh my memory: what is California’s debt again?

“….I suspect we will be seeing “Yellow Vests” rallies before his first year in office concludes.”
I’d say before his first month.

Ah yes, let’s force American taxpayers to fund more “free” benefits for illegal alien moochers.

What could be more fair than that?

Yet another reason to get the hell out of California. The mental patients have escaped and are running the state government.

Insanity like this is why we need to scale the federal government WAY back; there should be NO wealth transfers between the states via the federal government.

Federalism is great; let California try this but only with their money with NO possibility of any “bail out” at any time with any other state’s money.

deploy the military to California’s border with orders to terminate all who try to enter illegally while they are building the wall. Dead illegals will not be able to avail themselves of free healthcare.

Maybe the whole state of California should be put under martial law, and all illegals in the state rounded up and expelled?

California would be a good place to test human cannon deportations.

We all have to thank The People’s Republic of Kalifornia. It gives the rest of the nation a very clear view of exactly what would happen if the uber-liberal policies of the current Democrat Party are put into place. And, it graphically illustrates what happens when a political entity is dominated by urban concentrations of the manufactured dependent class. The same thing is happening on both coasts. Large urban areas, which have disproportionate level of poor and dependent residents, turn into welfare states which have higher than average levels of crime and violence. And, the residents of these areas demand higher and higher levels of welfare benefits.

So, let Kalifornia continue to go down this road. The federal government should refuse too bail it out. And let everyone see exactly what happens when liberal policies actually come to fruition. Thank you Kaliforniana for your sacrifice.

    Please expand title to The Peoples Democratic Republic of California…PDRK… has a more North Korean ring to it.. yes?

    The quicker the Progressive laboratories of states (Cali) and cities (NYC) forge irreversibly ahead with their policies the sooner the rest will see the demise of this political bent. I never thought California would Cloward and Piven themselves first. It is like Marx saying capitalist countries would go commie first only to be shown wrong… plus about 200 million dead along the way.

Can citizens renounce their citizenship so they can get free health care for themselves and their children?

This leftist is very dangerous.

He looks like Christian Bale in American Psycho.

    Doing a re-make; California Psycho

    Only this time he’ll channel some real psychos and go full Che. Perhaps he’ll consult with China on camp construction.

California flooding their state with illegal aliens, protecting them, and even allowing them to vote (as long as they vote Democrat), is the very reason why the electoral college was created.

I’m sure we can all see that the greasy-coiffed Newsom is positioning himself for a run for POTUS. This tenure as governor is merely a stepping-stone.

Proposition 187, the “Save our State” (from illegal aliens) measure passed with almost 59% back in 1994. The leftists ran to a leftie federal judge to have most of it ruled un-Constitutional. Political coward and rino governor pete wilson failed to fight for the measure and it died in the courts. The point being, a majority of Californians are actually against illegal immigration, whether you believe it or not. I believe newsome is setting himself up for a recall election if he actually signs this into law.
