California’s far-left Governor Gavin Newsom issued a dire prediction for the Republican Party this week; claiming the GOP was quickly heading towards the “waste bin of history.”
“America in 2019 is California in the 1990s,” he told Politico. “The xenophobia, the nativism, the fear of ‘the other.’ Scapegoating. Talking down or past people. The hysteria. And so, we’re not going to put up with that. We are going to push back.”
“What’s so remarkable about someone with the experience and temperament of Speaker Pelosi is that she’s seen a lot of movies,’’ Newsom said. “She’s been there. She’s got a better sense than a lot of folks. So I think we should stay the course. What we’re doing is working … I think Democrats are winning right now.”
“[Republicans] will go the same direction — into the waste bin of history, the way Republicans of the ’90s have gone. That’s exactly what will happen to this crop of national Republicans,” he added.
Newsom unveiled his plan last month to form a Homeless Task Force to tackle the housing crisis crippling the region; bizarrely calling the issue a “national” disgrace.
“Gov. Gavin Newsom called growing homelessness in California a national disgrace as he announced that he is launching a task force to find solutions,” posted the Ventura County Star.

“Newsom has proposed spending about $1 billion in the state budget on programs to tackle homelessness, including providing $650 million to local governments for emergency shelters and other services. He also wants to spend money on programs for homeless college students and legal protections for people facing evictions,” reports the VC Star.
Newsom’s comments come as San Francisco officials report a 45% increase of homeless residents living in cars and RVS across the city streets.
