A Plea for Help?

I find it odd that California Governor, Jerry Brown, is asking for the federal government for help with global warming in light of the State Government's general defiance of federal law and the numerous threats to secede from the Union. 

It's very unlikely that the federal government will spend one thin dime on the train to nowhere project that is a pork-barrel favorite of California's Democrat caucus. Had Hillary won, there would have been borrowed money pouring in like the water that is pouring out of the damaged Oroville dam at the moment. 

How times have changed.
(Breitbart) On Friday, California Governor Jerry Brown sought federal help from President Trump by asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to declare “a major disaster” in California in light of the damage done by recent storms. 
The East Bay Times reports: “Brown formally requested the declaration for the series of storms striking the state between Jan. 3 and Jan. 12.” He noted that “heavy rains, winds and snow, particularly in Northern California, left eight people dead and knocked out power to an estimated 1 million Californian homes and businesses.” 
Brown’s request comes as Gov. Brown has challenged the Trump administration on climate change, immigration, Obamacare, and other issues. 
Other Democrat officials in California have been open about their refusal to comply with Trump administration orders regarding illegal immigration. San Francisco’s police chief, sheriff, and mayor all made clear they would not enforce Trump’s immigration order, long before the order was taken to court. The San Francisco Police Department went so far as to cut ties with an FBI counter-terrorism task force in order to prevent officers from being involved in action that targeted illegals
And California’s highest law enforcement agent, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, has been very open about his determination to fight Trump’s policies as part of the larger effort to retain sanctuary policies that harbor illegal aliens in the state.

...But Gov. Brown would like some federal funds to help out in the short term, so he is asking the Trump administration for help.
However, you know that as soon as California has the money, the attacks against President Trump will resume with an even more vicious fervor.

  1. And he must know that, too.
    If President Trump makes any deals, he better get his first; because if he doesn't, just like Regan and Bush, he never will.

  2. The ruling elite in California have gone round the bend. Now they have put thousands in harms way. I can't even get started on that stupid bullet train, MULTI BILLION dollar fiasco...

    1. California has picked a weird gaggle of freaks and misfits to call the shots. It is the land of fruits and nuts.

      It's too bad that regular folks may have to suffer because of their fecklessness.

      The regular folks just elected President Trump. Is there hope for CA?

    3. No hope for California. That's why I'm selling off and moving to AZ. I've had enough of the People's Republik. There are a lot of nice things about CA, but it's getting impossibly crowded and the fish is rotting from the head down in terms of government.

      The part of the state where I live is remarkably conservative and voted for Trump. I could stay here -- but I can't stand the traffic and the volume of people.
