In the aftermath of Friday morning’s jobs report, Jerry Brown’s statement seems positively foolish. Brown infamously tweeted “At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!”

What’s he talking about? The economy is hitting on all cylinders. Wages are increasing. Ditto with take-home pay. We might be on the verge of a major foreign policy breakthrough with North Korea. What’s the “unprecedented political turmoil” that Gov. Moonbeam is talking about?

The only possibility is that he’s talking about the state of turmoil that his state is in. California’s homelessness is at a historic high. There’s deficits for as far as the eye can see. The middle class is racing to get out of the state. The Democratic Party is selectively listening to the American people.

California just got rated last in the US in quality of life:

A 2017 Harvard University report said that one-third of renters in the Los Angeles area are “severely rent burdened,” meaning they spend at least half their income on housing. The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles County has increased 67%, according to Zillow’s Rent Index, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Here’s the criteria they were judged on:

U.S. News ranked each state in seven other areas, which were weighted based on a survey that determined their importance to the public: health care, education, economy, opportunity, infrastructure, crime and corrections, and fiscal stability.

Then there’s this:

California finished No. 43 in fiscal stability, No. 46 in opportunity, and No. 38 in infrastructure. It posted relatively high marks in health care (11th), economy (4th), and crime and corrections (28th).

This is immoral:

Homelessness has surged a stunning 75 percent in the last six years, the Los Angeles Times reports, and there are now at least 55,000 homeless people in the county.

People are leaving California because it’s a total mess. Jerry Brown is easily the worst governor in California history. The next Democrat governor will inherit a crisis, which they’ll immediately make worse. When the rich pay 40% of their gross income, it’s safe to say that the formerly middle class get hammered. It isn’t a stretch to say that Gov. Moonbeam’s policies have made things worse.

That’s the location of today’s political turmoil.

One Response to “Jerry Brown’s mindless diatribe”

  • Chad Q says:

    The political “turmoil” he speaks of is the turmoil the MSM either makes up or just can’t not report on at the White House. Trump makes it easy for them to report on or make things up but can you imagine if the MSM had been like this under Obama and had just covered Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Clinton’s email, etc. the way they cover Trump?

    As for California, shouldn’t Trump give a speech and say we no longer want people from shithole states like California? It’s so sad what is going on there.
