[Ed. – To appreciate the dangers inherent in big government, look no further.]
California Gov. Gavin Newsom praised President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, a withdrawal that left American citizens stranded and our Afghan allies betrayed and left to die. Our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us. That Newsom praised this deadly misadventure says much about the governor’s bad judgment and utter lack of common sense.
Newsom, who used the coronavirus to abuse his authority, overstepped his role as governor, virtually locking down the entire state and shuttering businesses, while he enjoyed himself — mask-free and indoors — with friends and supporters at a world-famous fancy restaurant.
We saw the same with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at her hair salon in San Francisco.
Such hypocrisy merely adds insult to injury, however.
Nearly a third of California’s restaurants have permanently closed due to COVID.
