Democrat Governor Announces Outrageous ‘Solution’ To State’s Money Troubles

Supreme Leader Regressive Dem Guv Newsom has a plan to save money due to a $54 billion deficit.  No, not ending the train to nowhere, a payoff to unions and greedy corporations.  No, not by ending the financing of killing of babies.  Nor his use of attorney and tax dollars to kill one million jibs thanks to AB 5.  Instead, he wants to empty the prisons and jails—making life unsafe—at the same time he is threatening to FIRE law enforcement and close down the Second Amendment.  He wants California in 2020 to look like The Bronx, New York in the 1990’s—a town run by criminals.

“The budget looked to close two state prisons in the coming years and eventually closing all three state-run juvenile prisons.

These closures would put more criminals on the streets of Democrat hotspot California.

On top of that, the left-wing governor is after unspecified increases to sentencing credits that would enable inmates to serve shorter sentences.

Newsom also hopes to shorten parole to a maximum period of two years – dropping down from the current five years for felonies. This move would essentially leave ex-felons without supervision after only a year and only 18 months for sex offenders.

County officials, meanwhile called the governor’s radical plan unworkable, pointing out the failure of similar smaller proposals before.”

With Prop. 47 and 57 making it acceptable to rob, rape and assault, now with zero cash bail, the closing of jails and prisoners, you better us your Second Amendment rights—since the Democrats WANT you to be a victim.

Democrat Governor Announces Outrageous ‘Solution’ To State’s Money Troubles

By Life And Liberty News, 5/18/20   

Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom says his state is facing serious budget problems, and his solution: let criminals go free.

Newsom sent a revised budget to the lawmakers in the state that pointed to the closure of a number of prisons as a cost saving measure.

The budget looked to close two state prisons in the coming years and eventually closing all three state-run juvenile prisons.

These closures would put more criminals on the streets of Democrat hotspot California.

On top of that, the left-wing governor is after unspecified increases to sentencing credits that would enable inmates to serve shorter sentences.

Newsom also hopes to shorten parole to a maximum period of two years – dropping down from the current five years for felonies. This move would essentially leave ex-felons without supervision after only a year and only 18 months for sex offenders.

County officials, meanwhile called the governor’s radical plan unworkable, pointing out the failure of similar smaller proposals before.

California’s Chief Probation Officers President Brian Richart, said that those sent to the state facilities that Newsom wants to close “have the most serious needs, which if left unaddressed, pose the most serious risk to our communities.”

Crime Victims Alliance Director Christine Ward said she fears the state will reach a tipping point if more criminals are on the streets as a result of the governor’s ridiculous suggestion for cuts.

“We’re not talking about your small-time drug dealer. We’re talking about the most serious and violent felons in our state. That’s what’s left in our prisons,” she said.

Back in January Newsom said that he had plans to close a single unspecified adult prison at some point in the next five years.

With earlier releases often predicated on inmates participating in rehabilitation programs, his revised plan seeks to close one of the state’s 34 prisons by mid-2022 and a second a year later, eventually saving $400 million annually.

State Sen. John Moorlach, an accountant and the ranking Republican on two corrections oversight committees did welcomed the much needed savings but warned that this was the opposite approach they should take.

Moorlach said it might be even cheaper to use more private prisons, something the state has committed to ending. Prisons are often remote communities’ major employer, he cautioned, saying the governor is also imperiling unionized prison employees.

Newsome is also pleading to the federal government for a massive bailout as the coronavirus proved to be the last straw on a state that has been severely fiscally mismanaged by Democrats.

In response to this crisis alone Newsom has proven not only his ineptitude, but that of Democrats in general has in the midst of a financial crisis he continued to misallocate state funds, approving a $125 million stimulus package for illegal immigrants, awarding $753 million to a Chinese car company for unapproved N95 masks, and blowing $3 million to supervise inmates released early due to the crisis.

    Really??? This is the best he can do?

    We are seeing criminals let loose with “No Bail Policy” of Democrats.

    We are seeing more repeat offenders being let out repeatedly and committing crimes.

    Sanctuary cities with more crime.

    Democrats have determined, felons should vote. Why? They gave up that right with crime. So sad too bad.

    Democrats have stated they don’t believe there are criminals only misguided.

    There are bad people. There are criminals. There has to be consequences. With out them the nation and state will spiral out of control. No wonder the Chinese Communists think they get away with international crimes.

    The perfect solution, close the prisons and layoff police. The idiot Governor and Democrats doing exactly the wrong thing.

    Or saying the wrong thing. This looks like the typical Democrat ploy before rising taxes. Scare everyone into voting for a tax increase.

    Want to stop this S__t. File a realistic recall and get rid of Gruesome. Vote out every Democrat in the legislature. Short of that all you can really do is bitch. Action works, otherwise just suffer and bitch.

    Why do people still think Newscum is stupid ???? Not only are the things he is doing not out of stupidity they are in fact part of a much bigger agenda that involves the World , not just the once great state of California. This guy is part of a much bigger plan, just look at what’s going on in the rest of the states where somehow, Demoncrapic Governors have been elected in conservative states somehow against all odds and each one of those states are betraying America at every opportunity . Newscum is a part of the Communist Globalist ” elite ” that want total control as well as mass de- population reduction. People who consider themselves Superior to the rest of the human race because they were able to lie , cheat , steal and murder their way into power and untold riches . Newscum ain’t stupid , he is deadly to the freedom of mankind .
