After Attacking Florida, Gavin Newsom Now Setting His Sights on Texas

After Attacking Florida, Gavin Newsom Now Setting His Sights on Texas

“sure to fuel further speculation that the Democratic governor, who is expected to cruise to re-election this fall, is laying the groundwork for a possible presidential run”

In a blatant attempt to raise his profile for 2024, California Governor Gavin Newsom has been engaging in an unprovoked attack on Florida recently.

The second part of his plan is to go after Texas, apparently.

NBC News reports:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom goes after Abbott in Texas on guns and abortion

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is running full-page ads in Texas newspapers Friday trolling Republican Gov. Greg Abbott to highlight a new California gun law modeled on the Lone Star State’s restrictive abortion law.

The ads, first shared with NBC News, will run in the Austin American-Statesman, Houston Chronicle and El Paso Times. They modify an Abbott quote about the state’s abortion ban and promote “California’s answer to Texas’ perverse bill.”

“If Texas can ban abortion and endanger lives, California can ban deadly weapons of war and save lives. If Governor Abbott truly wants to protect the right to life, we urge him to follow California’s lead,” the ad reads.

The move is the latest example of Newsom’s foray into national politics after buying TV ads in Florida knocking GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis and decrying Democratic timidity while in Washington last week.

It’s also sure to fuel further speculation that the Democratic governor, who is expected to cruise to re-election this fall, is laying the groundwork for a possible presidential run.

That line about “Democratic timidity” speaks volumes as to what this is all really about. Democrats see Biden as weak, and Newsom is trying to portray himself as a tough guy. It’s so obvious and weak.

Newsom is going to show Texas how things are done by enacting more gun control in California.

Townhall reports:

Newsom to Sign Gun Control Bill Modeled After Texas’ ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Ban

Pro-abortion California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced Friday that he is signing a first-of-its-kind gun control law modeled after a Texas law that bans abortions in the state after fetal heartbeat detection.

Newsom’s announcement comes one month after two major Supreme Court rulings pertaining to gun control and abortion. In the abortion case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Court overturned landmark case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in all 50 states in 1973 (via Associated Press):

His action comes one month after conservative justices overturned women’s constitutional right to abortions and undermined gun control laws in states including California.

Newsom stitched the two hot-button topics together in approving a law allowing people to sue anyone who distributes illegal assault weapons, parts that can be used to build weapons, guns without serial numbers, or .50 caliber rifles. They would be awarded at least $10,000 in civil damages for each weapon, plus attorneys fees.

“While the Supreme Court rolls back reasonable gun safety measures, California continues adding new ways to protect the lives of our kids,” Newsom said in a statement released before he signed the bill. “California will use every tool at its disposal to save lives, especially in the face of an increasingly extreme Supreme Court.”

That’ll show Texas who’s boss.

It’s too bad Newsom doesn’t have any time left to focus on the many troubling crime problems in his own state.

Just look at ulvalde , that’s a lot of Texas unfortunately

Was not this way when ai came inThe 70’s

    Texas certainly isn’t what it once was. As for Uvalde, I place the reason for that failure squarely on the number of military personnel in law enforcement, particularly Border Patrol. Former military personnel are conditioned to obey orders and the idiot “Chief” of the four officers in his School District force issued the orders to wait. I don’t know why it took so long for the USBP personnel (or any others, who didn’t do that) to say the heck with the order to wait and did what should have been done 74 minutes earlier, but that is the result.

    I’ll add that the Uvalde PD officer who had the shot at the shooter before he entered the building asked for “permission” to engage the shooter. Of course the LT was not immediately available to give him the “go” and the opportunity to end it with no deaths was lost. I blame that on the high profile prosecution of serving officers. Not just state action, but Federal charges piled on top of state convictions, Such actions are noticed by officers and have an effect which is not conducive to officers making independent, timely judgements when they are not confronted with a shooter actively shooting, or even when one is shooting!

    The citizenry has changed and we should not expect that law enforcement personnel won’t also change. If a significant portion of the male population has become soy boys, it will be reflected in law enforcement, though to a lesser degree. Risk taking is out, probably permanently, and we are the poorer for it. The new reality is the old reality, we are all our own defense.

    Remember that when you guys attack us Californians. I moved here in 1989 when CA was Reagan Country. That was completely destroyed by the Republicans themselves, the same Bush-Cheney-Rove Republicans who have done much to destroy TX the same way. TX is maybe one election from being CA if Texans don’t wake-up. “Don’t mess with Texas”? HAH! CA built a wall. TX has nothing but sanctuary cities just like CA and just about everywhere else.

    We didn’t vote for what is happening in CA and neither did TX. DC and NYC aren’t the only ones who are beginning to “get it”. Now if we can just unite to fight the Uniparty and the dirty money that is controlling them. Newsom is about as empty an empty suit can get but most of the Republican politicians are no better and often worse.


      “”CA built a wall.””

      What crap. The Feds built the wall with US taxpayer money.

      You. Are. Clueless.

      Texas has one of the weakest Governorships in the country. Perry tried to pass mandatory HPV vaccinations for girls AND BOYS. He was shot down by legislature.

      Texas HAD two sanctuary cities; Dallas, Houston. In 2017 the Texas Legislature passed law requiring Texas cities to cooperate with ICE. Effectively ending sanctuary cities in Texas.

      It amazes me how often ignorance is so proudly displayed.

    That’s because men aren’t what they once were in this country. When you emasculated and feminize men you get the current landscape.

Gov Hair Gel survived Recall and is feeling his oats. If he gets the nomination, the Socialist/Communist Party voters will vote for him. I don’t see much of any opposition, he’s prettier than Camel Toe with less baggage and some ability to speak (I guess, never heard him/bothered to listen). So who is a higher profile Socialist/Communist who might run? Quid Pro Joe Xiden certainly isn’t running in 2024, no matter what Frau Doktor Jill has him say.

    The elections here are rigged so only 15-25% vote in a typical election. I just posted two links from Red State the past two days exposing how our corrupt Fake Doctor Barbara Ferrera somehow co-opted the CDC to impose her non-doctor daughter’s phony research on the rest of the country. Other than for a couple of LA radio stations, it has been completely ignored.

    This is one of the truly major scandals of our time exposing just how the Covid corruption works. Hello? Hello? Is anyone out there? Hello???? Hello????

    Try again,

    We deserve to lose.

      In 2020 17.6 million voters in CA cast a ballot. In 2016 it was 14.6 million. Both were over 70% of registered voters. The 2018 midterms saw 12.7 million votes cast, over 65% of registered voters. That’s way more than 15%. Your neighbors did vote for what you have in CA.

      If indeed the elections are rigged in CA then abandon it for greener pastures. Remaining there adds to CA census count giving additional political power to the system you call corrupt. Your continued presence compels your taxation which funds the policies you disagree with.

      Move to another location where public safety exists because voters demand it and where responsible voters can make a difference through civic engagement. It’s a big Nation with many options. Choosing to stay ‘behind the lines’ seems unwise.

He’s a plastic man, fake as a three dollar bill. He cares nothing about the people, only about Gavin.

Progressives will adore him for taking it his extremism and opportunism, but most see through him, no different than Liz Warren.

    Indeed. But, he is younger and photogenic, versus Biden, Sanders, Clinton, and Warren. If the Republicans want a re-run of the 1960 election, go for it. DeSantis can beat Newsom.

It will be funny to watch this idiot try to operate on a national stage. It will be even funnier when Hillary cuts him off at the knees to protect her own candidacy.

    Setting His Sights. Ha ha. That man couldn’t hit the commode with his pisser if he was two feet away.

Gov Newsom is talking about other states because he doesn’t want to talk about his own.

They’re working hard to remake Nuisance in the Kennedy mold

It’s quite farcical, if you stop and think about it. Every single one of these narcissistic, greasy, self-promoting, self-serving and pompous Dumb-o-crat governors (first Newsolini, and now, Illinois’s Pritzker) who laughably believes that they are allegedly presidential material hails from a manifestly failed state that is brimming with crime, poverty, homelessness, illegal aliens, failed school systems, fleeing taxpayers and businesses and inhospitable economic conditions. California and Illinois are two of the most glaringly incompetently-governed states in the Union.

Newsolini and Pringles Pritzker have absolutely nothing, nada, zippo, bupkis in their respective track records to recommend them for higher office, yet, these narcissists actually believe that their forked tongues will be able to convince voters to ignore the foul stench of their appalling and failed records.

“California can ban deadly weapons of war”
The repubs will nads between their legs need to start calling the dems LIARS to their face. Fully auto are still being restricted and it’s not cheap to by or feed. And the AR’s you can buy in the store are semi auto, never been to war and the dems are LIARS.
Kid gloves have been off from the dems for decades, the repub women seem to be the only ones stepping up of late for the most part.

Do it, Gavin.
Pass your stupid law.
Then when murders go up instead of down, we’re coming out there to string you up for being a chronic and habitual liar.

What is wrong with this guy? He’s the worst of the worst of everything we ex-Californians moved to Florida or Texas to escape from.

And he thinks we still secretly long to be controlled by him. Pay his taxes. Abide by his gun and emissions laws. He’s effing sick in the head. I haven’t seen the adds, but it sounds like it involves a stalker ex-girlfriend sending you texts reminding you of how she ruined your birthday or wrecked your car or got ahold of your credit card information and ruined your credit rating as if those events were romantic comedies. As if those are days any sane person would want to relive.

Thank God I chose to defend the Alamo.

CA is welcome to pass such a law, but it won’t have much effect. The Texas law on which it’s based rested on the specific economic circumstances of the abortion industry, which led to Texan abortion mills being afraid to remain open and risk being sued.

It was always pretty clear that (so long as Roe v Wade was still the law of the land), should anyone actually try using the law it would be struck down, at least in that case. It was upheld only on the basis that nobody had yet used it, and the plaintiffs couldn’t identify anyone who was likely to use it. So the courts said we can’t intervene, we have no power to strike it down, because there is no case or controversy yet.

In the California case I don’t believe the same circumstances apply. Dealers will not shut themselves down out of fear of a lawsuit. And plaintiffs will not be able to restrain themselves from bringing suit immediately, and thus giving the courts the authority they need to strike the law down.
