California Rejects Trump Order To Deploy National Guard To Southern Border

Is anyone really surprised?

Two weeks ago, President Trump announced plans to "deploy U.S. troops" to the southern border to guard against illegal crossings into the country "until we have a wall," signing an executive order on Wednesday directing the National Guard to deploy troops to "assist the border patrol."

While many states moved ahead with the plan immediately, one state did not... And AP now reports that two U.S. officials say:

California has rejected the federal government's initial plans to send the state's National Guard troops to the border.

And the reason for their rejection of Trump's orders...

Because the work is considered too closely tied to immigration enforcement.

As a reminder, California Gov. Jerry Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from President Donald Trump when he pledged last 400 troops to border mission last week....

But the Democratic leader conditioned his support on troops having nothing to do with immigration enforcement, and has now, according to AP, backed out.

Is it any wonder "everyone wants to leave California?"

Or break the state up?

 

We wonder how long before Trump tweets a response to this...

Why am I not surprised?

What I am surprised about is how come people still pay to live there?

LA is a cesspool, the homeless ride the train tracks north and south to live on the streets.

The cost of taxes alone is mind boggling.

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive..." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: "Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?"

This is great.  Any injury to an American by an illegal who crossed the border after the President exercised his authority to order up the National Guard to protect the national borders is now arguably a federal matter and the GOVERNOR and PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA can be sued in federal court for failing to carry out their Constitutionally mandated duties.

God damn these people are stupid.

Trump haters, rejoice!  The destruction of the country continues.  You had another opportunity to broadcast your hatred of the USA and you jumped (in a very effeminate way) at it.  You should feel good after this.

"Damn orange jesus trying to save the country.  Dotard...  FREE $HIT FOR EVERYBODY!!!"

Screw it... put guards on the border between CA and the rest of the states... cut off all federal funding... let them be overrun, raped, knifed, and pillaged by the illegals. Then when there is nothing left to leach off of, and all the illegals have returned home we can repatriate with decent human beings.

The goal of the globalists who are being aided by Libtard Dems is to bring down the USA so as to enable the globalist dream of a new world order government run by the globalists...of course, the Bill of Rights is not part of the globalists' equation in their world order govt....so they will purposely destroy the US and its Bill of Rights with CIA created fake mass shootings, unfettered immigration,  massive government debt, and purposely fomented racial division

10 USC § 332 – Use of Militia and Armed Forces to Enforce Federal Authority: Whenever the President considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the U.S., make it impractical to enforce the laws of the U.S. in any State or Territory by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion. This section is a statutory exception to the Posse Comitatus Act.

Nah, let's close down all US military installations in CA and relocate the equipment and personnel to other parts of the US.  As we abandon these basis make sure to destroy them so they are not used to house illegals.  Tell the defense contracting industry that they will also have to relocate or the will lose government contracts.  Don't forget to shut down all operations at Lawrence Livermore.  The other nuke development facilities can pick up the slack.

Great way to destroy California's economy and assist the Mexican's in their Reconquista efforts.
