California Democrats Picking Illegal Immigrants Over Our Veterans

USA – -( Greetings, everyone, from southern California, where I was doing an interview with the Rubin Report.

Recently, I was in Temecula for the grand opening of the Mighty Oaks Foundation’s national training headquarters. I would urge you all to check out the Might Oaks Foundation, and its founder Chad Robichaux. There is no other organization in the United States that is a faith-based military and veterans support organization. The mission of the Mighty Oaks Foundation is “to serve and restore our nation’s warriors and families, who have endured hardship through their service to America, and to help them find a new life purpose through hope in Christ and our resiliency and peer-to-peer recovery programs.”

I am honored to serve on the Might Oaks Advisory Board with five other distinguished American warriors from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. This organization’s mission to aid our veterans, and families, who are hurting is honorable, exceptional, and admirable.

Sadly, one cannot say the same thing about the imbecilic governor of the state of California, Gavin Newsom.

As reported by Townhall:

“California will soon make history as the state is set to become the first in the nation to give free healthcare to some illegal immigrants. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats in the state legislature reached an agreement to allow low-income individuals between the ages of 19 and 25 who are in the country illegally to be eligible for Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program. “While it’s not all we sought, it will provide a real tangible difference for people, especially for those around and below poverty and for middle income families who don’t get any help under the federal law,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of advocacy group Health Access, Fox News reports. About 90,000 people will qualify for the measure, which is part of a $213 billion budget deal. It is expected to cost roughly $98 million per year.

Under the agreement, a family of four earning more than $150,000 would be eligible to receive about $100 a month from the government for their monthly health insurance premium bills, AP reported. The state will reportedly tax individuals who do not pay for health insurance in order to pay for part of it. The policy would revive an individual mandate penalty that initially came with the federal health care bill former President Obama signed into law. (The Hill)”

We know about the previous egregious actions of NYC to offer free college to illegal immigrants, but not to Gold Star families. These examples of disrespect to our veterans should not be tolerated.

To think that Gov. Newsom would offer free healthcare to any illegal immigrant, yet make no offer to assist our veterans with their healthcare needs is unconscionable. I don’t think it would take $90M to make a difference for our veterans and military service men and women who are suffering and struggling from the incessant combat deployments we have asked them to conduct. But, what is also highly disrespectful is that Newsom would seek to tax law-abiding citizens of the Golden State to fund this illegal folly. What Newsom is doing is using taxation as a means to penalize individuals who are doing nothing more than exercising their own freedom of choice.

This is how the progressive socialist left rolls, people. They will coerce, intimidate, threaten, and mandate their tyranny in order to achieve their ideological agenda. I believe that the citizens of California would have no issue with an increase in taxation to support our veterans. But using taxation as a weapon against legal citizens to support illegal immigrants, tell me, what part of that is Constitutional or legal?

If the individual mandate has been repealed by federal law, can a state, lawfully, implement it on American citizens? I would tend to believe there will be a class action lawsuit against Newsom along those lines.

Regardless, once again, we see who is prioritized by the progressive socialist left. Remember, they said little to nothing about the failing VA healthcare system. Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently remarked that there was nothing wrong with the VA healthcare system.

I have a simple question for all the progressive socialists who troll this website: illegal immigrants or veterans?

We know you will not answer, but your actions tell us all we need to know.

    1. Illegals over Veterans????? What else can we expect from a socialist state run and occupied by morons smoking dope? The real people do not have a chance in that corrupt environment. Do real Americans even vote there anymore because the A-Hole DEMOCRAPS and changed the rules to protect themselves? Now they want to have convicted FELONS on Jurys. Next they will make rape and robbery legal.

      1. There’s nothing wrong with smoking a little weed. I know a lot of vets that are only still living due to the relief that cannabis brings them.
        The arse licking traitors who are running the once great state of,,,,well shit pick one. Well that is another matter.
        I do notice that a lot of these traitors haven’t been charged yet. WHY???

    2. Commiefornia will be broke in 5 years if that…the next great recession, hi tech leaving Silicon Valley and more unskilled workers plus all of this “free” and “we’ll give you this” will be the reasons. Hello Venezuela California!!!

    3. These clowns spew the BS and want to hand free healthcare to some illegal aliens on the backs of the taxpayers? Taxpayers should be screaming enough of this free stuff to anyone and everyone. They estimate it’ll cost 98 million of state tax money to fund the free stuff for these illegal aliens. What they should do is hold a rally and everyone that agrees with the program are required to pony up 75% of their assets until the 98 million for the program has been fully funded starting with the entertainers and politicians who support it

      1. It is not just the wise moving out. There are those moving out because of taxes and high cost of living. They want the same California dreaming socialism in a less costly place. Evan if the head of household escapes because they are anti-communist, they bring their families with them who may be socialist and vote. Much like people moving from cities to the country to escape crime and bring their criminal children with them. I agree that all the anti-communist should vote, however, it is past the time for their votes to exceed the communists’ on the California state level.

      1. Obviously you do not live here, so you have no idea what this system is like. We, the anti-liberal people of California have continued to vote down these marxist ideologs. Unfortunately, we are outnumbered. Just as it is in places like NY, the entire state is controlled by the voters in NYC. Here it is SF, LA, SAC, etc. Even when the populace agrees on a point, the legislature and governor do whatever they want even if it is illegal under state law. We fight the good fight, but we lose. However, we continue to have hope for the future. Hope that what the progressives do to the people, and which hurts the low income people the worst, will bring about change. It’s how, many years ago we got rid of Moonbeam’s father, Pat Brown, and brought in Ronald Reagan.

    4. And yet the streets of Cali are a public health and safety hazard with the streets littered with needles, feces and trash causing Middle age diseases like typhus and the bubonic plague to make a comeback.

    5. Gavin Newscum and every last one of the progressive commiecrat Left all need to be thrown from helicopters out over the ocean. They are traitors, pedophiles, reprobates, and the enemy of liberty and humanity. They have no place in our society.

      Seriously. Fire up the helicopters!!

    6. They put illegals above citizens in my state. They taught Muslims to fly the military flags of our country out front so they can blend in. Just because there is a Marine Corp flag flying at house does not mean Marines are there. Could be Muslims from other side of world rubber stamped into America with guns.
      Be Advised, things are worst than you know.

    7. California is the development laboratory for the SDNC (the “S” stands for Socialist in Socialist Democrat National Committee). The SDNC wants and needs to develop more government dependents who will vote Socialist Democrat forever. Veterans do not serve the DNC’s needs. On the other hand, illegal immigrants are just the ticket.

    8. Maybe THEY SHOULD SUCEED FROM THE US? We would loose sea ports and it would cost us but, it would get rid of their debit, their bull, their acts against GOD and nature, their communist/socialist/far left views etc… They have warned they would do this in the past. There comes a time when raising children when you must sit back and let them receive the reaping of their actions. It’s not pleasant and it is painful but there are times when a parent just can’t teach a stubborn child and they just have to see for themselves. This being done under supervision so they would learn the cost for their evil deeds. I am all for helping anyone we can help but there are priorities and if there has to be a line one must stand in to get that help maybe it should start with those who have already given their fair share and more into the system. If one can’t, won’t or just plain refuses to help those in their own house, how can they help those outside? That being said, we have an obligation to help whenever, wherever, whomever we can. That IS the right thing to do. The story of the good Samaritan still rings true. Human life is still human life and there is only so much left in the wallet so there MUST be a way to help based upon priorities. This would help the greatest amount of people. The satisfaction you get out of life is directly related to what you put into it.

      All of these things being said, commie califorina is way deep in debit to the point where the average man can’t afford to even buy a house. There are the VERY wealthy, a few middle class types and the rest of the people are in the poor house. Did you really think slavery ended 150 years ago? Their economy is little more than a house of cards that WILL fall sooner or later. When it does, you may expect a bunch of people who will bring their depravity,lack of morals etc.. to violently try to put you into the same state of trouble that caused this mess in the first place. Help those you can, when you can but you must be able to defend your family, friends and neighbors, co workers and yourself. That is just another reason to be armed 24/7. If you don’t already have weapons and ammo, you might want to seriously think about getting that way. Arm up, carry on

      1. I already stated we need to wall Cali off to protect ourselves with a note along the outside of the wall filled with liquid sewage and a note along the inside of the wall filled with liquid nuclear waste sludge and people attacked me as if I’m wrong. Humbolt cartel is flooding across this country wiping it out so yeah forget the wall idea I’m wrong. Have no idea what I’m talking about although it has already turned my state 100% communist. You all are next.

        1. Could we please start the wall at the Oregon border? Should have been built back in the 70’s and now you rarely find anyone who isn’t a CA transplant. West of the Cascades, Portland is becoming the SF of the north and Salem is a haven for homeless camps and Hispanics. The free helicopter rides could be useful here!

      2. The break away of Cali is due to the Humbolt Cartel trying to steal Cali and begin breaking up the whole union piece by piece for sale to foreign buyers for mineral extraction and other resources and is why they need to send us all to FEMA camp for extermination and remove us from the surface of the land and is why UN Agenda 21, 2030 &. 2050 exists of which liberals were openly teaching about this day 30 years ago in Cali. It’s a scam to leave us dead and our heritage sold off to those countries already making payments. China, Russia etc. Uranium one Bundy stand off is only the tip of the ice berg. Global warming scam of depopulation to reduce carbon footprint is part of the UN depopulation plan to remove humans from their land so it can be sold and transferred.
        Know a scam when you’re being scammed!

      3. No, don’t let California go. Declare it a state in open rebellion, occupy it with Federal troops, disband its legislature, and begin the reclamation. Give it three or four generations. What, too radical? Bad precedent? How about subsidizing or providing a tax credit for any Californian moving to a free state and give preference to veterans.

        BTW I’ll bet Clark (Gerald) brags (virtue signals) to all his fellow workers (trolls) about how often he corrects the spelling and grammar of posts on Ammoland. It’s a pathetically weak shtick.
