SACRAMENTO, CA – The governor of the failing state of California, Gavin Newsom, is asking the Department of Justice to investigate the recent transportation of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard as a potential kidnapping case.
But his request is less about the migrant’s welfare and more about himself.
No surprise there.
The Martha’s Vineyard Drop-off
Florida Governor DeSantis, in a bold and classic move, offered to transport 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard via air.
The move was intended to relieve the pressure to the southern border states of record-breaking numbers of migrants coming into America.
The transport will give the migrants a fresh opportunity to start elsewhere, aside from the resource-soaked areas occupying Texas and Arizona border communities.
And it worked as planned.
According to a Red State column:
“Dylan Fernandes, the state representative for the district in which Martha’s Vineyard is located, posted a tweet noting that the illegals ‘were not met with chaos’ when they arrived and bragged: ‘We are a community & nation that is stronger because of immigrants.’”
“Our island jumped into action putting together 50 beds, giving everyone a good meal, providing a play area for the children, making sure people have the healthcare and support they need. We are a community that comes together to support immigrants.”
These are the resources southern states have been using since Biden took office and the reason why they need to spread out migrants.
A representative from DeSantis team replied to Fernandes by saying:
“Great, then you won’t mind taking in a few thousand more.”
The Martha’s Vineyard drop-off comes after countless migrants have been sent to ‘sanctuary cities’ across the U.S., namely Chicago, New York and Washington D.C. in search of new opportunities.
But the California governor, Gavin Newson, is using this opportunity to selfishly launch himself back into the mainstream media.
He stood in the shadows for many months after he barely survived a recall election after his disastrous Covid-19 response. He lost the faith of millions of Californians with his draconian measures to fight Covid by locking much of the state down, forcing businesses closed and (further) crippling the economy.
According to a Fox News column, it stated:
“The effort to oust the governor was fueled by the state’s strict COVID restrictions on businesses and houses of worship, school shutdowns, as well as opposition to the state’s high taxes and criticism of Newsom’s handling of the state’s growing homeless population.”
Covid didn’t stop Newsom, however, from enjoying the fruits of political power by visiting lavish restaurants while the state was shut down and millions suffered.
His latest move is a meager attempt to gain sympathizers from the Democratic leaders across the country. He has his gawking eyes fixed on a 2024 democratic presidential nomination. The lustful thought of the presidential position is too powerful for him to ignore.
Newsom authored a letter to the Justice Department asking for an investigation into DeSantis’ administration for possible kidnapping claims.
That’s a stretch- but not for Newsom.
According to a Fox News column:
“In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Newsom asked whether actions by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants from their respective states to destinations such as New York City, Washington, D.C. Chicago, and Martha’s Vineyard were illegal.”
Newsom is alleging that the willing migrants were misled and given false promises of a better life. He also dared to use the word ‘kidnapping’.
Perhaps that was the buzzword he was hoping will spring him back into the political spectrum. He wants to let America know he cares- good luck with that.
In the letter to the Department of Justice, Newsom wrote:
“Several of the individuals who were transported to Martha’s Vineyard have alleged that a recruiter induced them to accept the offer of travel based on false representations that they would be transported to Boston and would receive expedited access to work authorization.”
“I urge US DOJ to investigate whether the alleged fraudulent inducement would support charges of kidnapping under relevant state laws.”

It is clear that Newsom is merely making noise for himself by using political buzz words to get attention.
“Possible criminal or civil violations…”
“Predicate offense for charges under the RICO (Racketeer influenced, corrupt organization) Act…”
Newsom must stretch out the allegations as far as possible to overcome his reputation as the California ‘do as I say, not as I do’ dictator.
But the fact that a recall election took place means he never should have been a governor in the first place, let alone the next president.
Maybe Newsom is jealous of DeSantis.
CA Gov. Newsom reveals what triggered him to run anti-Florida ads (spoiler alert: he hates freedom)
Posted July 18, 2022
The following contains content which is editorial in nature and expresses the opinion of the writer.
SACRAMENTO, CA- The inept governor of California, Vaseline boy Gavin Newsom took to the Florida airwaves a week or two back for the sole purpose of taking aim at that state’s extremely popular governor, Ron DeSantis.
It was a bit confusing why Newsom would attempt to interfere in the politics of a state some 3,000 miles away.
Add to it the fact that the ad made the absurd point that Florida residents, who pay no income tax and have at least “reasonable” gas prices in the current environment should give all that up and move to the hellhole that is California.
“Freedom is under attack in your state” was the call from Newsom, odd since California was ruled as a quasi-dictatorship for two years during the pandemic. It was, shall we say, strange.
We’re about to celebrate Independence Day — but Freedom is under attack by Republican leaders in states like Florida.
Making it harder to vote.
Criminalizing women and doctors.
It’s time to stand up. Don’t let them take your freedom. pic.twitter.com/cFI5UzgZzX

Many thought that Newsom, who fancies himself a potential Democratic Party presidential candidate possibly as early as 2024 if Democrats kick dementia-ridden Joe Biden to the curb, was targeting DeSantis, who is also widely considered to be a contender for the 2024 Republican nomination for president. Attempt to “take out” the competition, so to speak.
As the Washington Examiner reported this week, Newsom claimed the reason he targeted DeSantis in the ad wasn’t political, it was personal. According to Brylcreem Boy, he went after the Florida governor allegedly because of DeSantis’s threat to fine the Special Olympics $27 million if it didn’t remove its COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Sure Newsom, we’ll buy that lol.
“He did something that tipped me very directly and that was going after the Special Olympics,” Newsom told the Sacramento Bee, speaking of DeSantis. “That led to the consideration of doing something a little bit more expressive, and that was the determination on the ad.”
In a hilarious bit of irony, Newsom in June called the Florida governor’s pushback on the Special Olympics vaccine mandate “bullying.”
Clearly. DeSantis resides 24/7 in the head of Newsom…one might say, he’s obsessed with him. This from a man who imposed some of the most draconian, arbitrary, and capricious COVID-19 restrictions in the country, restrictions which he himself felt no need to obey himself…see the “French Laundry” for an example.
In the Florida ad, Newsom mentioned a number of current events, including abortion, schools wading into social justice areas, and medical freedom.
“I urge all of you living in Florida to join the fight—join us in California, where we still believe in freedom: Freedom of speech, freedom to choose, freedom from hate, and the freedom to love,” Newsom said. “Don’t let them take your freedom.”
Newsom forgot the freedom to step in human feces while walking the streets of Los Angeles or San Francisco. Freedom to get shot while on the boardwalk in the City by the Bay. Freedom to pay $7.00 plus per gallon of gasoline.
Freedom to have your electricity shut off in the middle of summer. Freedom to get arrested while wakeboarding all by yourself off the coast for violating COVID mandates. You know, all that type of “freedom.”
DeSantis wasted no time in pushing back against Newsom during a press conference a few days later.
“Let us be clear. California is driving people away with their terrible governance…it’s almost hard to drive people out of a place like California…and yet they’re finding a way to do it.”

Meanwhile, DeSantis reelection campaign spokesman Dave Abrams noted that Florida voters are probably not all that impressed with how Newsom is handling California.
“The people of Florida pay no mind to the pathetic smear campaigns from the Democrats and their allies in the corporate media,” he told the Daily Wire. “We’re too busy enjoying the freedom Governor Ron DeSantis has created in the Sunshine State.”
DeSantis is widely considered future presidential material, although he has dismissed questions about him possibly being a 2024 candidate, saying he is focused on getting reelected to the Florida governor’s office.
Whether he runs or not would likely depend on whether Donald Trump announces he will again seek the Republican nomination.
Meanwhile Newsom is getting some traction among Democrats despite the fact California has turned into the American version of a third-world hell hole.
There have been some stirrings within the Democratic Party that Joe Biden is simply too old and showing numerous signs of possible dementia, hence looking at possible replacements.
However with inflation at 40 year highs and no end in sight, 2024 may turn into a bloodbath for Democrats no matter who runs in either party.
Newsom is just an imbecile.
California Gov. Newsom blames cargo thefts on gangs, then apologizes for calling them gangs
Posted January 24, 2022
SACRAMENTO, CA- During a news conference near the Union Pacific Railroad tracks in Los Angeles on Thursday, January 20th, Governor Gavin Newsom clarified his statements from earlier in the week when he called criminals accused of stealing packages from cargo train “gangs of people.”
Nice gent Newsom, but weak & ineffective.
— NeedCommonSense2021 (@NSense2021) January 22, 2022
He wanted to assure the people of California that he was not implying that those thefts were gang-related. He said in a statement:
“This is not one-off. This is organized theft. These are organized gangs of people that are coming out. Forgive me for saying ‘gangs,’ that’s not a pejorative. They’re organized groups of folks that move from site to site.”
The governor announced a multi-agency effort to deter theft, hold perpetrators accountable and clean up the railroad tracks.
According to FOX 5 in Los Angeles, he stated that the thieves could be charged under organized crime laws, which would carry harsher penalties. He said in a statement:
“When there’s more attention, a bright light on one site, they move on to the next site. While these folks are arrested as if they’re individuals that are not connected to the whole and we need to change that.”

After the news conference, the governor was criticized for saying that the trash along the tracks created by the looting of the cargo bins made the area look like a “third world country.” He said:
“I’m asking myself, ‘what the hell is going on?’ It looked like a third world country, these images, the drone images that were on the nightly news.”
The comment prompted a chorus of criticism from state Republicans, who ofter characterize the governor and his policies as too soft on crime. San Diego mayor and gubernational candidate Kevin Faulconer who challenged Newsom in 2021’s recall election, tweeted:
“Look in the mirror Gavin.”
Others on Twitter pointed out that “third world country” is considered an antiquated term. Los Angeles reporter Doug Sovern wrote:
“Hello @GavinNewsom: the term ‘Third world country’ was replaced by ‘developing nation’ like, 25 years ago.”
Newsom has defended his policies on crime in the state and claimed that more funding for the state’s Organized Retail Theft Task Force will help put an end to the train thefts.
The state is adding California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers along the railroad to supplement Union Pacific’s own police force and security measures.
The governor also called for prosecuting thieves who target trains under “organized crime laws,” which can carry hasher penalties. Alex Bastian, an adviser to progressive Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement to the Associated Press (AP):
“We make charging decisions based on the evidence. Our office takes Union Pacific’s concerns seriously and hopes to discuss this issue more in the coming weeks.”
During his press conference, the governor also asked consumers to do their part by using reputable resellers and being skeptical of items listed online for prices that are too good to be true. Referring to stolen goods, he said:
“A lot of this stuff ends up on platforms you shop on.”
In a December 20, 2021 letter to Gascón, Union Pacific Railroad’s Adrian Guerrero said that rising retail theft crime in Los Angeles County during 2021 is part of the problem. Reportedly, Union Pacific experienced a 160 percent increase in criminal rail theft in Los Angeles County during 2021.
