All about…

Newsom's Lockdown

April 30, 2020
CAGOP

Earlier today, reports statewide – verified by the California Police Chiefs’ Association and local officials up and down the state – indicated that Governor Newsom would close all California beaches.

Because…it definitely makes sense to allow people to crowd into grocery stores but not let them responsibly enjoy the beautiful outdoors we are so lucky to have in California.

But then Governor Newsom backpedaled and only issued his arbitrary edict for Orange County.  Despite his claim that this was always the plan, officials throughout the state called his bluff.

Last night, he had alerted statewide officials of his intent to close all beaches.

Although health officials consistently advocate a science based approach to addressing this pandemic – there is absolutely NO science that says responsibly enjoying fresh air and salt water will risk your life in Orange County – but not anywhere else.

And this arbitrary decision by our Governor shows we need new leadership.

COVID-19 & the Media

From The White House – April 13, 2020

The media can’t rewrite history

Last month, most Americans surveyed by Gallup approved of President Trump’s Coronavirus response. Hospitals, state governments, and Federal agencies all earned positive reviews, too. The only institution that most people didn’t trust? The news media.

Many in the media got the story wrong from the start. They insisted the virus posed no real threat to Americans. They joined Democrats and the World Health Organization in attacking President Trump’s early China travel restrictions as unnecessary, even “xenophobic.” They parroted Chinese government propaganda to make their case.

Responsible journalists and politicians would own up to these failures and vow to fix them. Instead, irresponsible ones are attempting to rewrite history.

While they downplayed the virus and its risks, President Trump took action. Here’s just a sample of what his Administration has done over the past 3 months:

  • On January 29, the President assembled his Coronavirus Task Force. Two days later, he declared a Public Health Emergency and restricted travel from China. 
  • On February 4, President Trump vowed to protect Americans in his State of the Union Address and issued Emergency Use Authorization for Medical Devices. On February 24, he requested $2.5 billion from Congress to combat the virus’ spread. 
  • On March 6, the President signed Coronavirus preparedness funding into law. Between March 11 and March 18, he restricted travel from Europe, declared a National Emergency, issued aggressive national Coronavirus Guidelines, and signed the Family First Response Act. By the end of March, he’d sign a historic $2.2 trillion economic relief package negotiated by the Administration into law. 
  • By April 9, more than 2 million Americans had been tested for Coronavirus—by far the most testing of any country on Earth. The same day, Vice President Mike Pence announced that the Paycheck Protection Program had already approved more than $125 billion in forgivable loans in fewer than 5 full days of operation.

When pundits are wrong, their instinct is to divide Americans, not unite them. Real leaders, Democrat or Republican, don’t do this: They work together to get things done. This morning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) highlighted his working relationship with President Trump, who he praised for delivering on his promise to help New York.

“If you do the right thing by New York, I’ll say it,” Gov. Cuomo said.

We're Taking the Fight to the Democrats

As California Republicans celebrate the recent CA Supreme Court unanimous ruling that candidates for President do NOT have to provide their tax returns (SB 27), we look forward to having Donald Trump on the ballot and encourage you to make sure you are registered Republican so you can vote for his re-election as well as your County Central Committee members.

Meanwhile…

  • California is facing a homeless crisis, skyrocketing cost of living and failing schools.  The Democrat policies are failing and we need change.
  • We must all work together to register as many Republicans as possible, and to support our candidates and their campaigns to take back as many state and federal legislative seats and re-elect the President
  • Governor Newsom and the super-majority of Democrats in the state legislature must be held responsible for the devastating policies they’ve implemented in our state – and for spending their time on petty politics instead of addressing the severe problems facing our state.
  • The CAGOP is raising money to support a stellar group of candidates in 2020. We will take back some or all of the seats lost in 2018 because people are fed up with the Democrat’s failing policies.

Gas Tax Bait & Switch by Governor Newsom

Remember Prop 6? Democrats and public employee labor unions told voters that our roads would crumble and bridges would fall if the additional gas tax (SB 1) was repealed. A majority of voters believed them – and were betrayed.

  • Under SB 1, the average family will spend over $700 per year on new taxes.  With the cost of living in California skyrocketing, and the policies pushed by the Democrats in Sacramento, California’s families are struggling to make ends meet.  No wonder people are moving out of California!
  • Governor Newsom signed an executive order redirecting gas tax funds to projects focused on getting people out of their cars.
  • California’s infrastructure is crumbling in many places – our roads and highways are full of potholes, bridges and roads are in desperate need of repair and upgrade, and traffic congestion plagues many of the cities in our state.
  • It is unconscionable that Governor Newsom unilaterally took these funds from their intended – and promised – use and instead redirected those funds to other projects.

The Republican legislators came up with a plan that would have improved our roads and infrastructure, without any additional taxes. It’s called prioritizing.

Wildfire Prevention and PG&E

Residents of Northern California have been severely impacted by fires and now unprecedented power outages. While Democrats play the blame game, Republicans are stepping up with solutions.

  • Recently, two Republican state lawmakers – Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama) and Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) – who represent the Town of Paradise and Camp Fire survivors, announced their intent to introduce legislation that will help prevent future wildfires and Public Safety Power Shutoffs by PG&E.
  • The lawmakers will introduce legislation to direct additional funding into utility infrastructure upgrades and forest fuel reduction projects – two of the leading factors in catastrophic wildfires and cited by PG&E in declaring PSPS events.
  • The legislation will:
    • temporarily pause the state’s renewable power mandates until infrastructure and vegetation management conditions are improved;
    • require that savings from this temporary relief may only be used by Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) to harden the grid and reduce forest fuels.
    • Freeze executive compensation at IOUs and any proposed bonuses will be put on hold

AB 5 Changed the Law Relating to Independent Contractors
  • Governor Newsom signed AB 5 into law with support from unions and legislative Democrats. The bill changed California law regarding independent contractors like Uber and Lyft drivers, freelance writers and other workers seeking flexibility in the job market to help make ends meet.
  • This new law is unnecessary and will severely impact the cost of living and jobs throughout California.
  • Independent contractors don’t want this law.  In fact, 79 percent of independent contractors prefer it over traditional employment according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Economic Release (June 7, 2018)
  • According to an August 2018 survey of California independent contractors conducted by EMC Research, eighty-seven percent of California independent contractors were satisfied with their work.

The California Truckers Association has sued the State of California due to the impact of AB 5 on independent truckers. Read the article.

House Democrats Hold Impeachment Hearings

The impeachment hearings in the House are now over…we think…and Americans haven’t changed their minds. According to Rasmussen Reports, a plurality still expect President Trump to be reelected next November and there is sizable support for expanding the hearings to include the activities of Joe Biden and his son. Read more.

  • Democrats like Nancy Pelosi want impeachment, voters don’t
  • Just like Governor Newsom and the Democrats in the California state legislature, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress are trying everything to divert attention away from their failures in leadership and addressing problems that matter most to their constituents.
    • That’s why the Governor Newsom and the California Democrats don’t want to talk about their failure to address the key problems plaguing our state like homelessness, the skyrocketing cost of living and our failing education system.
