Democrat Assemblywoman Says F-U to TESLA and Elon Musk

by Jack

If the Assembly Hispanic Caucus is the honorable and dignified group they claim to be, you might expect them to immediately distance themselves from the vulgar remarks made by their member,  democrat legislator Lorena Gonzales, when she tweeted a “F- – you” to Elon Musk.

This tweet was in response to his complaint about CA’s heavy handed quarantine unnecessarily damaging TESLA.   Following her insult, Musk threatened to close TESLA California operations and leave for either Texas or Nevada.

We’ve reached a new low in government when such profanity by an elected official of the CA state assembly can pass for acceptable conduct.

Musk said on Twitter Saturday that the TESLA company is preparing to file a lawsuit against the county of Alameda where Tesla is based and will move its headquarters and future operations out of California.

Musk made the threat amid an escalating battle with the Alameda County Public Health Department over when operations at the automaker’s plant in Fremont can restart amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  Musk had previously provided the county with a plan for safe working conditions, that included social separation, masks, gloves, etc., but one appointed bureaucrat in county government blocked it and refused to move an inch.  One unelected bureaucrat in county government had the sole authority to block a multi-billion dollar company and put millions in tax revenue and hundreds of jobs at risk because they were vested with too much power.  And it was all done without logic, reason and facts.

Assembly woman Gonzalez, a well known leftist union hack, tweeted her profane comment Saturday evening, then on Sunday she apparently tried to walk it back a little by explaining her emotional outburst.  However, as of today, not one ranking democrat, from the governor on down, has criticized her disgraceful and immature behavior!

Who is Gonzalez?  She authored two job killing bills, AB 5 and AB 51. The first bill affected independent contractors and the 2nd repealed mandatory arbitration for labor disputes.

No matter what job she held, Lorena Gonzalez says, her late mother told her never to change who she was, this included being foul-mouthed and a strong woman.

In her second year in the state Assembly, Gonzalez is a new face for the labor movement in Sacramento, pushing for guaranteed sick leave and job protections for grocery store workers. She’s been an influential voice for illegal aliens.

    The current president bragged about the size of his penis at a debate. There are no standards anymore.

    But we can change that in November.

    • Tina says:

      With what candidate?

      • Chris says:

        Biden, of course. While he has had more outbursts and gaffes then I would otherwise be comfortable with, given the circumstances, he would be a step toward returning to normalcy and decency. He does not hog the spotlight and wouldn’t spend every morning tweeting his grievances toward his enemies. He would not brag about the size of his penis at a debate. He would not call his opponents’ wives, or his female opponents’, ugly.

        His response to the recent allegations against him was that if you believe them, you shouldn’t vote for him. Can you even imagine Trump saying saying such a thing? Trump’s response to his accusers has been to say they aren’t his “type;” in one case he even told people to “check out” an accuser’s non-existant “sex tape.” The difference is clear. Somewhere, you know that.

        • Tina says:

          The ugly person first said he was morbidly obese, as if that were relevant to anything other than filthy snarky behaviors in politics. Your party has a long history of personal smearing and Biden is included in that.

          For a person who made such a huge deal about articulate speaking ability in leadership you sure picked a winner. As the young would assert, hypocrite much?

          • Chris says:

            Who was talking about Nancy Pelosi?

            The comment was relevant to her health concerns about the president after he announced he was taking an untested medicine to prevent coronavirus (even though there is no evidence this medicine can be used preventatively):

            “He’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists,” she said. “Especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese, they say.”

            I don’t agree with her that would qualify as “mordibly” obese, though his previous doctor’s notes announcing his health and weight have been obvious fabrications. But this one comment–expressed fairly sympathetically–is nothing compared to Trump’s daily stream of bile, including previous comments he’s made about Pelosi.

            Like I said, Biden has been gaffe-prone in the past and has had his share of outbursts. Trump transcends the concept of gaffes–no one even uses that word to describe Trump’s insane rantings, because it would be the understatement of the year. Biden on his worst day remains far more articulate and mature than Trump on his best.

          • Tina says:

            Pelosi trying to play the “science” card regarding hydroxychlotoquine, an APPROVED medication I took for at least fifteen years…daily!!

            It should alarm you that a leader of your party would make such a blatantly false statement.

            The medication has been used for decades to fight malaria. Do you believe dear leader Nancy would deny Africans this valuable medication? Of course not. Activism in science has no place, nor does politics.

            His body, his choice. Plus, he had the approval of his doctor to take the pills. Guess, Nancy isn’t pro choice any more, but has added an MD to her name.

            Hope you didn’t sprain anything with that stretch. Pelosi, of course, did not argue that the government should stop Trump from being able to take hydroxychloroquine, so the “pro-choice” allusion is nonsense. She just said it was unwise for him to do so, and that it’s unwise to take the president’s advice on this. And if you read the doctor’s letter carefully, nowhere does it actually say that Trump is actually taking hydroxychloroquine. The president is a notorious liar, and he’s obviously lying about this.

            On a related note, the president seems to believe it is the job of a news network to help him get elected:

            Many will disagree, but
            @FoxNews
            is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected on November 3rd. Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real “garbage” littered all over the network, people like Dummy Juan Williams, Schumerite Chris…

            https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1263537553073942528

            I’m getting tired of saying this, but imagine if Obama had talked like this. Imagine if he publicly reprimanded CNN for not doing enough to help Democrats and himself get elected. Your entire head would have fallen off.

          • Tina says:

            Why would Obama, or any Democrat, chide CNN? CNN is an arm of the party!

            Trump fights against the Democrat media complex…for the people!!! And, for the health of our nation. He uses language you hate because it’s the only language you leftists understand:

            Gun toting Bible thumpers, deniers, deplorables, racist, racist pigs…

            Trump is gracious and respectful to those who are gracious and respectful and not just to him but to the rest of us that have been demonized and sneered at for decades without backlash or repercussion. Nothing you assert will change that.

          • Peggy says:

            Did your head explode Chris when Obama not only lied about the press he actually went after those he didn’t like and questioned him?

            I agree, Obama was a much better public speaker than Trump, but it just makes him a better liar too.
            History will record the Obama presidency as the most corrupt since our founding.

            AP FACT CHECK: Obama doesn’t always tell the straight story:

            “WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Barack Obama’s recent denunciation of President Donald Trump’s treatment of the press overlooks the aggressive steps the Justice Department took to keep information from the public during his administration. Obama also made a problematic claim that Republican “sabotage” has cost 3 million people their health insurance.

            With his return to the political donnybrook on behalf of Democrats in the November elections, Obama has brought a once-familiar style back into the discourse. It’s measured, nuanced and distinct from the torrent of misstatements from Trump. That doesn’t mean Obama always tells the story straight.

            OBAMA: “It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say that we don’t threaten the freedom of the press because they say things or publish stories we don’t like. I complained plenty about Fox News, but you never heard me threaten to shut them down or call them enemies of the people.” — rally Friday at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

            THE FACTS: Trump may use extraordinary rhetoric to undermine trust in the press, but Obama arguably went farther — using extraordinary actions to block the flow of information to the public.

            The Obama administration used the 1917 Espionage Act with unprecedented vigor, prosecuting more people under that law for leaking sensitive information to the public than all previous administrations combined. Obama’s Justice Department dug into confidential communications between news organizations and their sources as part of that effort.

            In 2013 the Obama administration obtained the records of 20 Associated Press office phone lines and reporters’ home and cell phones, seizing them without notice, as part of an investigation into the disclosure of information about a foiled al-Qaida terrorist plot.

            AP was not the target of the investigation. But it called the seizure a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into its news-gathering activities, betraying information about its operations “that the government has no conceivable right to know.”

            Obama’s Justice Department also secretly dogged Fox News journalist James Rosen, getting his phone records, tracking his arrivals and departures at the State Department through his security-badge use, obtaining a search warrant to see his personal emails and naming him as a possible criminal conspirator in the investigation of a news leak.”

            I don’t know how to explain to you that a drug being approved for one condition does not make it approved for other conditions. Ask your doctor to explain this to you.

          • Chris says:

            So Fox News is part of the “Democrat media complex?” That’s just nuts.

            I guess Jeff Sessions is part of the Democrat media complex because he did the right thing for once, followed the law, and recused himself from an investigation that he could have been a subject of. That’s why Trump spent the weekend attacking him. I guess John McCain is part of it for criticizing Trump’s endorsement of torture. Mitt Romney? Definitely. He called Carly Fiorina ugly because she was just so disrespectful to him! Jeb Bush, who he said “has to like Mexican illegals because of his wife,” was just so mean and unfair to Trump. Megyn Kelly, who asked him about his long and documented record of misogyny, must be a Democrat, and that’s why he implied she was on her period when she asked him that question.

            Ted Cruz, whose wife Trump called ugly and whose father he accused of killing JFK? Total lefty! We in the Democrat media complex absolutely love Cruz!

            Every single one of these people is a Republican and nearly all of them believe more strongly in conservative principles than Trump, who believes in no principles whatsoever.

            Trump is gracious and respectful to those who are gracious and respectful and not just to him but to the rest of us that have been demonized and sneered at for decades without backlash or repercussion.

            What you mean by this is that he likes anyone who praises him and goes after anyone, left or right, who criticizes him, in absolutely vicious terms that are unprecedented in modern politics.

            But you’ll keep praising him, so you’re in no danger of this happening to you. Who cares that so many on the right you previously admired have been smeared by the guy at the top? That’s the price of disloyalty to the Trump cult.

          • Chris says:

            Peggy, I was very critical of Obama’s use of the spying power including the warrant on James Rosen, his aggressive targeting of whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning, and his use of drone warfare. These and other issues led to my voting third party in 2012.

            I don’t see the same type of criticism of Trump’s abuses of power here. Aside from the occasional Jack post about Trump’s idiotic tweets, the strategy seems to be total lock-step adherence to Trump no matter what he says or does.

            If this president hasn’t spied on anyone whom he refers to as “the enemy of the people” it’s because his administration can’t figure out a way to do it legally.

            While Obama’s spying on James Rosen was awful, I assume he did it because he believed (wrongly) that Rosen was endangering national security, not because Rosen was a critic of the administration. I would say the same thing about Bush, whose national security overreach was just as bad, but which I believe was sincerely motivated.

            Trump is only motivated by his personal ego. His disgusting conspiracy theory attacks on Joe Scarborough this weekend prove it. Back when Scarborough was a supporter of the president, Trump didn’t care about the dead staffer and never showed any interest in the conspiracy theory that Scarborough killed her. Trump is *only* accusing him of murder because he says mean things about him. We know this because as soon as Ted Cruz fell in line behind Trump, all of a sudden Trump stopped accusing his father of helping assassinate JFK. If Joe Scarborough were to suddenly start saying nice things about Trump again, he would stop spreading conspiracy theories about him. The only thing Trump cares about is whether you’re with him or against him. You’ve decided you’re with him.

            WASHINGTON – A widower is asking Twitter to remove posts by President Donald Trump seeking to link his wife’s death in 2001 to talk show host Joe Scarborough, a prominent Trump critic.

            “I’m asking you to intervene in this instance because the President of the United States has taken something that does not belong to him – the memory of my dead wife – and perverted it for perceived political gain,” said the letter from Timothy Klausutis to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

            Trump defended himself with a new set of tweets saying “the opening of a Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough was not a Donald Trump original thought, this has been going on for years.”

            Twitter issued a statement saying it is “deeply sorry about the pain these statements, and the attention they are drawing, are causing the family,” but did not address the question of whether it would remove Trump’s tweets.

            “We’ve been working to expand existing product features and policies so we can more effectively address things like this going forward, and we hope to have those changes in place shortly,” the company said.

            https://www.commercialappeal.com/story/news/politics/2020/05/26/widow-dead-joe-scarborough-staffers-wants-trump-tweets-removed/5257828002/

            People shouldn’t have to do this in our country. Notice that the widower appealed to Twitter to take the tweets down, not the president himself, because there is no chance that Trump will be a decent person and leave the memory of this woman alone. He doesn’t care about justice for her or her family. He only cares about smearing a critic any way he can, no matter how ridiculous the smear is or how many other people it hurts.

            Some day Trump is going to be gone and his supporters are going to have to reckon with how far his indecent and dishonest behavior has lowered the office and our nation.

            Nearly all presidents have committed abuses of power. Bush had Guantanamo. FDR interned Japanese-Americans. What was rarely in doubt was that these men were motivated by a love of their nation and the desire to see it kept safe, even when they overreached. Trump is motivated by his own insecurities and his need to be praised. That’s the only reason he ran for president and the only reason he continues despite clearly hating the actual job and the responsibilities that go with it. He is happiest holding rallies, playing golf, or tweeting. He can do all these things without making us pay for them.

            I remember it being said often here that President Obama spent more time condemning certain parts of the United States than he did condemning our enemies or foreign dictators. This wasn’t true of Obama, but it is true of Trump. The complete silence on the right over this shows how disingenuous that critique of Obama, along with so many others (remember “He golfs too much?”) really was.

          “Eight women, including Reade, have accused Biden of touching them inappropriately or invading their personal space in ways that made them feel uncomfortable. Seven of the women said Biden’s behavior did not amount to sexual harassment or assault.”

          And then there’s the children…eeeeuw

          • Chris says:

            I really don’t know why you think that quote helps your case. Again, over twenty women have accused Trump of sexual harassment, assault, or rape. As for children, you already know about the sexual comments Trump has made about his own daughter, including when she was a child. So bringing up Biden’s touchiness and the one actual allegation of sexual assault, while at the same time defending Trump, is just an epic failure to heed Jesus’ advice about the beam in thine own eye.

    This woman obviously has her own agenda and no respect for the people of California as a whole-horrendous misuse of power and why does she have that much power? I am sorry that her mother did not teach her that a strong woman has diplomacy and a caring heart for all, whether they are in her narrow interest group or not. Losing TESLA will be a bit hit to California in many ways. Hopefully someone will help this woman to become better educated as a human being or possibly she will have an epiphany and become a strong woman that has some class, insight and empathy that will help to strengthen all of the people of California versus only an interest group.

    Jack this is but one example of a bureaucrat overstepping authority for politics. The left would love to destroy the economy. They think it forces people into dependency mode. We can’t let that happen. The strongest American is an America filled with citizens depending on themselves and each other. Elon Musk let the governor know he has options. He has also shown a desire to get his CA workers back to work. Those workers can blame the governor if Musk is forced out.

    • Post Scripts says:

      Tina, the one good thing the ability to wield enormous power has done, it has exposed a lot of would-be dictators among the liberals. Radicalism is part of their style of politics by whatever name they choose, socialist, progressive, communist, Marxist, it goes with the territory. Their gravitate to the power and CA is an example of what happens when these characters run the whole show.

    • Chris says:

      The left would love to destroy the economy.

      Strange, then, that the last two left-wing presidents left a booming economy that their successors destroyed.
