In a huge propaganda win for the Communist Party, Gavin Newsom is galivanting through China on a 6-city trip to discuss “climate.” He is refusing to bring up human rights abuses or the CCP’s role supplying Mexican cartels with fentanyl ingredients.
I sent Newsom a letter calling on him to cancel the trip. 50 human rights organizations then sent their own letter condemning him. Many Californians have family who are political prisoners of the regime; rather than help them, Newsom is hobnobbing with their captors.
Newsom also lost a court case last week on the 2nd Amendment. He proceeded to personally attack the judge by name, calling him an “extremist” and “right-wing puppet.” I’ve called on elected officials on both sides to condemn Newsom’s irresponsible rhetoric.
This all comes as the Census Bureau’s new survey shows a staggering 817,000 people left California last year. I will add this factoid to the 10 questions I have suggested for Newsom’s November 30 debate on Fox News, which I’ll be fact-checking live on Twitter/X.
In another staggering statistic, last month set an all-time record for the most illegal crossings at the Southern Border. It was just three months ago that Secretary Mayorkas asked for a pat on the back in response to my questioning, claiming Biden’s border policies were “working.”
Meanwhile, the Speaker drama continues. Congressman Jordan’s candidacy came to the House Floor three times last week, and I voted yes each time. But he fell a few votes short and has withdrawn from the race. There are now nine candidates vying for the job.
In some good news, just a week after our Judiciary Committee hearing on out-of-control crime in D.C., the Mayor is proposing legislation to reverse many of the same reckless policies that California has. This could create nationwide momentum to restore law and order.
