California’s Gavin Newsom: Use the Pandemic to Usher in a “New, Progressive Era”

California Governor Gavin Newsom has publicly admitted that he wants to use the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to usher in a “new, progressive era.”

While the left-wing governor didn’t get into details, he did specifically target capitalism, as if the freedom to make money and do business without government interference is responsible for a deadly plague that originated on the other side of the world.

“There is opportunity for reimagining a progressive era as it pertains to capitalism,” Governor Newsom said in early April. “So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”

It’s hard to imagine California becoming more progressive than it already is. The state’s disastrous AB5 bill, which was supposedly intended to ensure that companies paid contractors a fair wage and benefits, has wreaked havoc on the gig economy as businesses simply began hiring contractors from other states.

This if far from California’s only economic obstacle. The Tenant Protection Act of 2019 prevents landlords from raising rents above a certain amount, a move that is meant to make it possible for low and middle-class renters to afford housing. In reality, such a rule makes housing more expensive by encouraging landlords to either start with high rental fees or exit the housing market altogether. Coupled with the state’s existing laws making it easy for tenants to withhold rent, move out or even file lawsuits against owners for “failing to make important repairs”, it’s not hard to see why large cities such as San Francisco have a housing crisis.

California has long maintained a reputation for treating private property owners like obstacles to their progressive plans. As the Hollister Ranch discovered earlier this year, California bureaucrats have no qualms attempting to take private land and turn it into public land without the landowner’s consent.

Governor Newsom isn’t the only Democrat eager to use the pandemic to “remodel the United States.” Several Democratic members of Congress, including powerful Rep. Jim Clyburn, have used the crisis to justify jamming in as many far-left reforms as possible. All you need to do is look at what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to sneak into the round of stimulus bills. Writing in arbitrary requirements for corporate boards, new regulations on businesses, and other items that have nothing to do with the pandemic whatsoever is proof positive that Democrats are more than happy to play politics right now.

Many of these goals, such as limiting airline emissions, would pressure businesses at a time when they are already facing unprecedented challenges. The California economy would likely tank for good if Newsom and his cronies had their way. what’s more, they would likely blame President Trump for the ensuing mess instead of realizing that socialist laws make life miserable for everyone.

The idea that the COVID-19 crisis should be used for any purpose at all is reprehensible. As the governor of the most populous state in America, Newsom should be using his powers to ensure that hospitals are well-equipped, the vulnerable are protected from the sickness, and that the business community has what it needs to get back on its feet once it’s all over. But that’s never been their agenda, has it?

    • A new progressive era . Could he mean a new era of tolitarian government ? Is it possible that Gavin Newsome’s middle name(s) are Adolf Hitler Joseph Stalin ? Or perhaps Chairman Mao , Fidel ?
      I am quite certain that the majority of Hollyweird supports him .

  1. Why then aren’t these politicians actual labeled for what they really represent because there not democrats and the people being registered as being democrats are getting screwed . Can the president get this party labeled as anti American

  2. All democrats in government either city, state or federal all should be stripped/tared/feathered and ran out of a flatbed and kicked out over the border to a socialistic nation where they can take over (maybe they get shot first).

  3. He needs to be LOCKED up in HANDCUFFS for NOT supporting the U.S. Constitution which he has SWORN to uphold. He is guilty of TREASON and SEDITION and needs to be removed from Office – PERMANENTLY. One Rather Alarmed Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  4. To the morons On fantasy island.That elected California Governor Newsom a full blown socialist communist and allow this idiotic moron that has forgotten way socialism and communism was a complete failure? Maybe the problem with California is the Democratic Party leadership of the state and the liberals socialist that are teaching the young. Who’s idiotic ideas of freedoms are free and the only time they use the constitution is when suits them and there needs?
    THE TRUTH IS THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BEEN DIVIDING OUR COUNTRY THAT HASN’T HAPPENED SINCE THE CIVIL WAR. THE TRUTH IS THAT IN CONGRESS WITH THEIR UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTED COUP OF THE PRESIDENT?
    STARTING WITH (1 the FBI’s incompetent handling of Hillary Clinton E-MAIL debacle and the attorney generals involvement.
    2) Then there’s the tainted Robert Muller inquisition at a cost over 25 million dollars and over 2 years waste of taxpayers money. 3) The Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi three ring circus impeachment proceedings with
    close door meetings witness that never appeared Democratic constitutional experts who with their own agenda along with crazy Nancy Pelosi holding up the impeachment to the senate.
    THESES ARE THE IDIOTS WHO THAT DEMOCRATS ARE VOTING FOR? ALONG WITH A NEWS MEDIA AND REPORTERS WHO EXPRESSES THEIR OPINIONS INSTEAD OF REPORTING THE NEWS

    • THE CORONA VIRUS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT SOCIALISM IS LIKE, WE NOW HAVE FOOD SHORTAGE’S AT THE GROCERY STORES, LOCK DOWN OF SOCIAL GATHERING’S, LOST OF JOB’S, ETC! WAKE UP PEOPLE THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE!

  5. Gavin Newsome Has no interest in the citizens of California, it’s obvious he is no different than Bernie Sanders or the Other Socialists Democrats who are trying to change a system that has been in place for years. His socialist agenda is dragging a once beautiful State, California to ruins. I’ve lived in California for 50 years. Because of The Governors politics and his lack of guidance and vision, I like many others have decided to leave California. I have had enough of his socialist and communist ideals. Bye to California and it’s Socialist Governor Gavin Ignominious Newsome.

    • Agreed George. We feel the same way. That socialist/communist POS don’t give two sh!ts about the people. Look what he done to San Francisco! That place is a cesspool! Homeless, drug attics running rampant. Pooping in the isles of grocery stores, needles laying all over the place! Needles that NEWSOM felt was the right thing to do, GIVE FREE NEEDLES TO ADDICTS!!! How’d THAT work out newsom? What a delusional punk! These anti-American socialist/demoncrats like Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, Pressley, Nazi Pelosi, German Nadler, Schifty Schiff, Maxi-uncleen Waters, Jail all Blacks Kamala Harris, Rob your 2nd Amendment Orourke, Set America DeBlaze DeBlasio, and the rest of them idiots need to be voted out and unless ALL OF WE THE REAL AMERICAN PEOPLE (LEGAL CITIZENS) come out to vote in November the demoncrat/socialist machine might just take the white house with the caravans of illegals they have been trucking up here for the last 3 1/2 years. With their trying to make it legal for everyone register by mail, harvest votes without any oversight, and to vote by mail. They are working overtime RIGHT NOW registering illegals, dead people and helping people to register in multiple states so they can vote more than once!!!

      ALL THE REAL AMERICAN LEGAL CITIZENS ARE NEEDED TO DEFEAT THE SOCIALIST/SICK PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT!!! THE SWAMP NEEDS TO BE VOTED OUT!!! NOW!!! 2020!!!
      THEY ALSO NEED TO BE INVESTIGATED AND PUNISHED FOR THEIR CRIMES!!! NOW!!!

      • Man, I got all wrapped up in my rant I forgot to mention George. We to are leaving California!!! Over taxation, support for more people to become homeless, free needle handouts, feces and urine and needle ridden sidewalks, sanctuary state in support of criminal illegals, homeless and trash EVERYWHERE etc.!!! We’re out!!!

  6. SO THE DEMON RATS THINK THAT THIS IS A GOOD TIME TO PUSH COMMUNISM AND TAKE AWAY OUR AMENDMENT RIGHT !!!! THERE IS A REASON WHY THEY ARE PUSHING COMMUNISM SO HARD …I WONDER IF THEY DID SELL AMERICA OUT TO COMMUNIST CHINA !!!! NOW MORE THAN EVER WE NEED TO INVESTIGATE WHY BIDEN AND SON GOT ALL THAT MONEY FROM CHINA !!!

  7. What I would like to know is why all these republicans and independents only talk about these bad things Newsome does or says. One day soon your going to have to stand up for yourself and what you believe, these demonic Democrats only want their power back that Trump and the American conservatives took. It’s the big picture that American’s aren’t seeing. Follow the money!!!!

  8. Filthy POS! Keep buying guns because we will have to start taking these nazis out feet first before we ever alliw those demonized bastards to controul us! We might hgave to devlare war against these murdering monsters in order to save our country! Those lowlife bastards are so evil they rejoice in all the deaths and spit on their graves! They all deserve to die!

  9. The State of California will be the downfall of America. The socialist reforms they have administered in this state have destroyed their economy, raised taxes, taken income from people who are working, and resulted in a state that is basically bankrupt and now the governor wants to add more burdens on the taxpayer. How stupid are the people in this state! The have witnessed two of their major cities become over burdened with homeless, allowed feces to be deposited on their streets legally, and yet continue to protect criminals and provide financial support for undocumented immigrants. If this is the utopia of the left, it is time to severe this state from all federal funds and let them sink. How can anyone possibly support politicians and lawmakers that allow and support these measures. Look at the pack of liars in politics from this state: Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, and this governor. Are the citizens morons or just totally lost?

  10. This entire state needs to be removed and reclaimed by Mexico before they destroy the rest of the states. Sanctuary Cities, free everything for non working immigrants, political support for prisoners, etc. These are dangerous people and if that is the true representation of the voting public in this state, we need to remove the state from the union and allow it to be self sufficient or a part of Mexico. We can’t support these people and they should not be allowed to bring down the rest of the country. If we are willing to continue allow these idiots a voice in the governance of America will end up like Venezuela. Pelosi, Gaven, Schiff, Nadler, etc. need to be set free to create a separate state that condones Drugs, Deviant Sexual Practices, anti American policies, and Cities with laws to protect people from penalties for depositing fecal matter on the streets of cities. Let them sink in their own sick society but stop them from involvement in out countries politics and policies.

  11. Newsome has labeled the People’s Socialist Demokratik Republik of Kalifornia a “Nation State!” Newsome is similar to students running for a school’s Student Government. The future Politicos promise the Student Body “shorter school days, free lunches, longer P.E., etc.; however, the Politicos aren’t able to deliver because they don’t have any “REAL” power. POTUS Trump is going to let Newsome take as much rope as he needs before hee yanks the slack and hangs Newsome. The Unlawful Migrants don’t care what happens to Newsome, as long as he gives them “Free Stuff!” I really hope that Newsome is pinning his hopes on the state’s Conservative, and Republican, population. I believe that Newsome would look great as a picture on a milk carton!

  12. what one should learn from this the Government of the world can not feed their people by the so to speak telling us when to wipe our ass Government control.

  13. They want us dead so we either will take out the trash our selves or they will destroy the Nation. Terrorist in the country let US not forget Obama who is one. Americans speak English any other languages spoken in public are terrorist!! We have no virus if we each did our part. Business that speak other languages should be shut down. Enough is Enough!
