California’s largest utility and energy company prepared to file for bankruptcy this week; sparking renewed fears of a west coast energy crisis like the one that plagued the region back in 2001.
“Pacific Gas & Electric’s (PG&E) pending bankruptcy filing will force California officials to make tough decisions as the state faces its newest energy crisis,” writes the Daily Caller.
“The bankruptcy of California’s largest utility, which serves about 16 million people, raises numerous questions, including over grid reliability, reflecting fears of a return to the rolling blackouts of 18 years ago,” adds the report.
“This is not 2001. This is 2019,” Newsom told residents Monday. “We have an abundance of energy and our customers should not be concerned about turning on their lights.”

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Gavin Newsom Calls for Free Healthcare for Region's ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS
Democratic candidate for Governor of California Gavin Newsom raised eyebrows across the state this week; calling for a universal healthcare program to cover millions of illegal immigrants residing in the region.
Newsom was speaking on the left-leaning “Pod Save America” podcast when he weighed-in on his fellow Democrats proposal for a “Medicare for All” system; saying a universal healthcare scheme should apply to every person -regardless of immigration status- living in California.
“I did universal health care when I was mayor– fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing condition, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status. San Francisco is the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud of that,” Newsom said. “I’d like to see that extended to the rest of the state.”

CALIFORNIA REVOLT? Gavin Newsom PLUNGES in Latest Poll Against GOP Governor Candidate
Former Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom’s once-giant lead over his GOP challenger in California’s gubernatorial race shrank to single digits this week; raising serious questions over whether a Republican can re-take the state’s highest office.
According to a new poll conducted by Probolsky Research between August 29th and September 2nd, Newsom’s lead shrank to just five points against California businessman John Cox.
“The Hispanic vote has been a source of frustration for Newsom, who has basically split that constituency with Cox, despite Hispanics historically preferring Democrats,” writes Fox News.
“This is a great reference point for everything John talks about,” said Cox campaign spokesman Matt Shupe. “It’s about bringing more transparency to government. It’s about approaching issues like a businessman. It’s about reforming a government entity that nobody is happy with.”
