Trump Demands Gavin Newsom Return
$3.5 Billion for Canceled Bullet Train;
Newsom: It’s ‘California’s Money’ Now

Breitbart Politics, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/15/2019 2:46:26 PM

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

This should be interesting.

All the Feds have to do is withhold any subsequent payments the State of CA might have coming in the future. Things like Medicaid share money. Highway funds, etc, etc. There´s plenty of money to claw it back.

With a smart mouth attitude like that, he needs a Trump Judge to rule that he has to pay it back. Or President Trump can just with hold the $3.5 billion from any money Kalifornia gets from the US treasury.

Born here love it here and I´m hopeful. 62 years old and travelled pretty much everywhere on the continent.

California is in no way a lost cause and some of you should knock it off with that dumbass cowardly garbage talk.

California is very much the United States; more than you know and your lack of knowing is your fault.

Your kitchen tables would be lacking plenty of wonderful things that you smugly take for granted without California agriculture so shut the hell up and break out of your dumbbell memes for once.

We´re all in this together. Don´t be chickens.

Newsome has legal standing. The money is designated for construction of a high-speed railway which is what it will be used for - a high-speed line between Bakersfield and Merced. I can´t vouch for his source but Tim Conway, Jr. stated the other night that Greyhound carried a total of 512 passengers between the two cities in 2018.

I would think the Feds have recourse to recover the money. If the IRS gave you a larger refund than you deserved there would be no question as to what will happen, same logic should rule here. Fraud would be the issue. As far as the poster who noted that we need California for it´s agriculture I agree, but please stop electing nut jobs like Pelosi, Lieu, and on and on and on. I love California but with your taxes and politics I would choose not to live there.

The points that Mr. Trump is making are not so much about getting the money back from California as they are about highlighting the exceedingly expensive boondoggle that this "bullet train" is.

I doubt Mr. Trump thinks he will actually get the money back. But I think it wise to stir the pot to draw attention to the wastefulness of so many "green" (or other politically correct) projects taken on by "blue" states.

Well #4, considering that your wonderful state has saddled the other 49 with the likes of Piglousy, Boxer, Feinstein, hollywierd, and numerous other plagues, I hope you can understand the animosity the rest of us feel.

The very likely widespread voter fraud occurring there in a one party leftist state might very well be the biggest single factor in returning the control of the house back to the socialists, and that effects us ALL, even if we are 2000 miles away.

Thank you, #4. I’m a native Californian and lived therefor 45 years until taking a job in Washington state. I’m always surprised at what people think California is like. Or what Californians are like. Not all of us ride our surfboards to work, wear dreadlocks, or smoke dope.

California, like most liberal run states, is going bankrupt due to the idiotic crap they spend money on. They don’t just squeeze everything they can get out of Californians, they think the rest of the country should pony up to support their lunacy. Not interested. And yes, I lived there. Couldn’t get out fast enough.

I too am sick of the California bashing by those who are not proud enough of their own perfect states to identify them.

California is near the bottom of the list for requiring federal funds. Where anyone got any other idea is a mystery. It certainly wasn’t at any site where the facts are presented. As I recall it was southern states like Mississippi and southwest New Mexico who every year get back in excess of 2 times what the state pays in to the fed.

Republicans at 5+ million are in the minority in voter registrations. Democrats are at something like 8 million. Declined to State are almost as many as Republicans. So the Democrats at 40% of the voter registrations hold the majority in elections. Their gerrymandered districts sent Pelosi and other loony representives like Schiff to the House. (Any good LDotter should know how gerrymandered districts work.) DiFi and Kamala are there because of the loony toon election setup where the two highest vote-getters go to the general election even if that means two Democrats.

You’re not supposed to bash victims, but too many LDotters do that when it comes to California, never mind that there are more Conservatives here than there are in a combination of many of your states put together.

We do not ask for your support. We are not whiners here. But it would be nice if you knew that the state that sent Reagan to the White House and a number of other stellar Republicans to Congress was for a very long time a Republican state.

#19, cont’d

But drivebys care not a whit for history. I am sorry there are now so many here now. Just stop sending your Dems to California … We already picked up too many in the Dust Bowl era when they came here like the caravans, looking for work and/or welfare. Or the union types who hit here in WWII to take advantage of great employment - big pay and benefits - at the defense plants. Or the egghead techies who flooded into Silicon Valley. The Facebook and Google and Apple types.

Pelosi is from Baltimore. Boxer, as I recall, was from NYC. The list goes on. Political invaders.

Those of us who were born here and lived here a long long time have always been Conservative Republicans, but the ignorant or just plain jealous or meanspirited tar us with the liberal bashing brush.

I long for the old days at LCom. The uglies were site pests. Well known. Not any more.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Californians are fantastic people, they have more "conservatives" than any other state, they don´t take federal money, they feed all the other states. We would starve without them, etc., etc. etc.

So, if Californians are such great Americans, who within the California borders is electing the likes of Pelosi, Feinstein,et al.? Is it transplanted Texans, Oklahomans, Floridians?

California: gorgeous land, fantastic weather, brain-dead people.

I´m in The Free State of Texas. We can feed ourselves just fine. Beef (of course), pork, poultry, venison, vegetable crops of every variety, citrus from the Valley and own and own. We have our own seaports. The only downside is all the commie Californicators moving here to escape what they have wrought on the left coast and bringing their diseased, pestilent politics with them. If Cali is so bloody wonderful, do us poor, deplorable Americans a huge favor and stay where you are. We will muddle through without you. Losers.

#4 and #19, I may not be a native, but have lived in CA for 38 years now, my entire adult life.
It´s a wonderful place, with weather most of the country could only dream having.

It´s changed, but somehow the CA GOP has not, and still stuck in their old ways.
They are horrible at messaging, and selling of their ideas - too long of explanation.

The Dems are very good at getting out their voters, or enough to win the contests in their districts. They don´t pout about X, Y and Z about any candidate, but vote for the D, regardless.

Republicans, conservatives more, seem to want to "protest" their vote by NOT voting, as if that shows them, when it actually shows you´re not reliable. Every non-vote is 1 less the Dems need to win. Dems work hard at discouraging Republicans to vote, and many Republicans don´t think it matters since the state is "deep blue". Yet, until the last election, California had 14 Republicans in the House, but lost 7 of those seats in 2018. 14 was more Electoral College votes than all of Arizona.

The State has a pension crisis that´s crowding out funding for other programs, so they are looking for any current savings, or delays in spending, and all sorts of revenue increases to make up the gaps.

At one point in my life I lobbied the California legislature. It was a sick joke back then and has become more and more bizarre over the decades.

I once enjoyed trips to the then-Golden State, Sad what has happened to it. Napa and Sonoma are fun, and Big Sur is beautiful. But the Left have destroyed it. I will never go back. I am glad I took my kids when they were young, so they can say they went there.

And Gavin, that is NOT your money, it is MINE, a significant US taxpayer!

Thank you, #4 and others. California was great until people from other states (your states!) came with their liberal garbage! And by the way, we gave you Ronald Reagan—you’re welcome. 54 years, my entire life here, and I love California. Many of you poking fun at us better get a grip because the contagion is spreading east and you’re next (I’m looking at you, Texas). Knock it off. And yes, President Trump will find a way to recoup these funds, as he should. Newsom is a jerk.

Served in the USAF ´67-71.

Came back to live in 1975.

Left California because it is NOT the same place as it was in ´75!

Those of you defending that hole are living in the past!

40 million people...many illegal, many "C" students, many do NOT care about you or the state!

And don´t get me started on the corrupt swamp legislature in Socialist Sacramento!

Get out of there !!

I did....and I never miss a thing about that socialist/sanctuary state left-wing hole!
And I am enjoying plastic bags and plastic straws again! s/

Say "dumbass cowardly garbage talk" to my face #4...You should be reprimanded for that verbiage in this wonderful salon.

I am 71 and a third generation Californian. Son is 4th and GS 5th. I will never leave my State, never. It would be like saying I am leaving America because it is too Liberal, which it is. In my 71 yrs here I have never lived in a Liberal area of Calif. Most of the Liberal cities are full of transports from other States. Thank you so very much. I use to be a Republican until so many of you started bad mouthing my State and my desire to stick it out here and not run away from the fight. I am a Conservative and proud of it, as is 75% of the fine folk in my County. It is bad mouthers like so many of you here that give the Right a well deserved bad name. If everyone is not exactly like you, then something is wrong with us. Save your anger for the Left. You good folk need to look out for yourself and not worry so much about us. We Conservative Californians are doing great, tyvm.

I came to California in 2005 after retiring from a 30 year military career. I had a good paying job and challenging work here until I retired. Love the weather here and the coast is beautiful. What kills me is the taxes and the political system that ensures single party rule. A few years back the primary system was set up where the two top vote getters went on to the general election. The minority party, the Republicans, have no chance to compete. The one party rule is no different that the Soviet Union only they call themselves Democrats. The idiot Democrats keep raising taxes and I have reached the point I am leaving. And Texas or Florida you are getting another proud American conservative--everyone leaving is not a lib.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr spent Saturday reviewing the special counsel’s confidential report on the Trump-Russia investigation, but Barr’s “principal conclusions” summary for Congress was not coming for at least another day. No summary for Judiciary Committee leaders — or the public — just yet, said a senior Justice Department official, speaking only on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the review process. Barr has said he expected to send his version to the lawmakers as soon as this weekend after determining what should be made public.

At the end of this review, according to statute, AG Barr will commission a “Principle Conclusion” summary report that he will deliver to congress.(Snip) it is likely the White House will be given the Principle Conclusion Summary around the same time as congress.

Lewis insisted Congress will demand the report be released to the public.

Robert Mueller’s investigation is done. There will be no more indictments and the existing indictments have nothing to do with his warrant—namely, claims that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign “colluded” with Russia to sway the 2016 presidential election. You’re hearing and reading a lot of spin (and wishful thinking) right now.(Snip) But if you would like a bit of prescient clarity about all of this, I suggest reading—or re-reading, as the case may be—Victor Davis Hanson’s essay, “Autopsy of a Dead Coup,” which made a bit of a splash in mid-February.

(Snip)We noted earlier how the specific emphasis of Ms. Herridge seemed to indicate the Horowitz report was closer to the surface of completion than previously thought. Immediately after the Mueller news broke (around 5pm EST), Herridge filed her first live report providing details of the Mueller report.

Yesterday the U.S. Treasury announced sanctions against two Chinese shipping firms for violating ongoing sanctions against North Korea [TREASURY HERE]. With USTR Robert Lighthizer and Secretary Mnuchin set to travel this weekend to Beijing for ongoing trade discussion, the sanction timing complicates the dance with the dragon. Subsequently President Trump sends the following tweet: (Snip)President Trump and USTR Lighthizer know the nuance and subtlety needed in the dance with the dragon. The larger issue of DPRK denuclearization, the bottom-line reason for the North Korea sanctions, will be solved within the U.S.-China trade discussion.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Boston Beer Co. will release next week “When There Are Nine,” a Belgian Brut IPA dedicated to the jurist and liberal rock star, according to a Thursday report in the Boston Globe. The title is “inspired by her famous response to the question ‘When will there be enough women on the Supreme Court?’” the company wrote at an Eventbrite page announcing the launch.(Snip) According to the Globe, the Ginsburg-inspired beer is a “pink boots release,” an annual nonprofit

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport. (Snip) the restaurant would have liked to have had a dialogue with it prior to the decision.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

A few months ago, Colton Haas and I traveled to the once beautiful city of San Francisco, hoping to have a question answered: What happened to San Francisco? (Video) Erica Sandberg, a community advocate and journalist, broke it down for us: "Right now the major issue — people always call it homelessness — but the major issue is drugs." While San Francisco has always battled homelessness and currently has about 7,000 homeless people, the drug issue is exacerbating the problem. The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Hours after New Zealand announced prohibitions against semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tweeted the U.S. needs to follow the gun ban example. Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off. (Videos/Tweets) Clinging to absolutely anything to avoid apologizing for her bogus reporting, Maddow claimed that

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” House Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee member Eric Swalwell (D-CA) stated that he doesn’t think he or the majority of his colleagues will accept a report “unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.”Swalwell began by saying, “[T]he American people will see every word, every comma, every period of this report. The president is outnumbered now in a way that he was not before.” He added, “Second, I don’t think I, and most of my colleagues, will accept a report unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.
