Democrats are getting desperate.
They’re attempting to exert more and more control as their policies are proving to be unpopular.
And one rogue Democrat Governor just ordered another insane crackdown.
California Governor Gavin Newsom won his recall election against conservative commentator Larry Elder after an all-out blitz from the Democrat Media Complex.
Newsom only pulled away in the race after Elder was smeared relentlessly by local and national media.
Off the heels of his victory, Newsom is instituting more draconian crackdowns.
Now Newsom is banning gas-powered machines such as lawn mowers and leaf blowers.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom recently signed a bill that would effectively ban the sale of certain kinds of new common gas-powered machines as soon as 2024, including lawnmowers, leaf blowers, and chainsaws…State Senator Brian Dahle, a Republican from Bieber, spoke out against it, pointing to the power blackouts that have negatively impacted California.”
California is the definition of a nanny state.
It ranks near the bottom of all fifty states in almost every single freedom metric.
State Senator Dahle added:
“This Legislature hates fuel, which is very sustainable. It’s easy to access. And when the power is off, you can still use it. You can still run a generator to keep your freezer going, to keep your medical devices going. But when your battery’s dead and there’s no power on, you have nothing.”
Elder, who is still calling out all of Newsom’s nonsensical orders, pointed out the absurdity of the latest mandate.
California Governor Gavin Newsom just signed a bill that bans the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers. The good news is that, if the blowers and mowers cost less than $950, you can walk in and steal them while they last.#WeveGotAStateToSave

California is sliding further and further into totalitarianism, and there doesn’t seem to be any way out.
That’s why many Californians have left the state – California had net negative migration out of the state for the first time in ages in 2020.
More and more people are getting fed up with the absurd top-down edicts that the elites ignore.
