California Gov. Newsom Shocked to Discover He Turned State Into a Third World Hellhole; Apologizes for Referring to Train Thieves as Gang Members, and related stories

California Gov. Newsom Shocked to Discover He Turned State Into a Third World Hellhole:
Sometimes you wonder about the mentality of liberal elites who turn cities and states into hellholes and then seem surprised by it.
After two years, Governor Newsom popped his head out of the French Laundry and is shocked to discover that legalizing theft and freeing criminals somehow turned the state into a third-world hellhole.
After weeks of trains being looted in Los Angeles, state officials are now stepping in.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday helped clean up some of the debris left after thieves have been raiding cargo containers on freight cars that stop in downtown Los Angeles at the Union Pacific Railroad tracks to unload. He was joined by the state Department of Transportation.
Much like his symbolic homeless encampments cleanups during his recall election, Newsom has mastered the art of virtue signaling cleanups. A governor's job isn't to engage in physical cleanups, there are people who already do that, but policy cleanups.
Newsom refuses to do the policy cleanups, but wants to be patted on the back for making a huge mess and then getting photographed with a shovel before going back and making the mess even bigger. --->READ MORE HERE

California Gov. Newsom apologizes for referring to train thieves as gang members: California Gov. Gavin Newsom has apologized for referring to the criminals looting packages from Union Pacific freight trains as “gang” members.
“This is not one-off. This is organized theft,” Mr. Newsom said during a news conference at the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. “These are organized gangs of people that are coming out.”
Then he quickly corrected himself: “Forgive me for saying ‘gangs,’ that’s not a pejorative. They’re organized groups of folks that move from site to site.”
The governor said, “When there’s more attention, a bright light on one site, they move 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.”
The Washington Times sent an inquiry to Mr. Newsom’s office and did not immediately hear back. The thefts happened at a time when California law enforcement is on high alert for organized retail theft of both luxury and big-box chain stores, including smash-and-grab robberies at high-end stores in Los Angeles. --->READ MORE HERE
