California Gov. Gavin Newsom told ABC News that his state's historic vote Thursday to ban the sale of new gas engine vehicles by 2035 is a game changer in the country's goals to curb its dependency on fossil fuels. The California Air Resources Board approved the new regulations Thursday afternoon following a long public comment process. California became the first state in the nation to issue such a direct phase-out of gas-powered vehicles, and Newsom told ABC News he is confident other states around the country will follow suit. "There's nothing else that will move the needle on greenhouse gases


Who voted for this? More like the Politburo handed down an edict.

It will never happen due to: Not everyone can afford an electric auto The electrical grid will not be upgraded in time to support requires electric demands Rolling brown outs will dampen the interest when people can not charge their autos The Hollywood orifices will not get on board

Why do (D) residents of CA keep voting these rulers into office. They, like (D) New Yorkers, must need rulers from cradle to grave to dictate their lives. Sad to be that needy that you acquiesce to the likes of Newsom and Pelosi to tell you how to live your life.

A handful of appointed bureaucrats (the "Air Resources Board"!?!) voted, and the mainstream media seem to be according it the same degree of legitimacy as if the legislature had drafted a bill, debated it, put it through reconciliation, passed it, and had the Governor sign it into law. Yo, ABC, this isn't like just some new policy tweaks on checking out material from the Library. It's the principal connection most people experience with personal freedom. Golf Foxtrot Yankee.

Brilliant post, Kono. Californians voted precisely nothing. This is a runaway, unelected administrative agency, exercising legislative power. The Supreme Court just indicated it is losing patience with this sort of dictatorial behavior in the West Virginia v EPA case.

California will have to do a lot more. Banning the sale will only result in Californians buying their cars from another state, or Mexico. They will soon have to ban ownership of gasoline cars.

A man I knew was planning on making his first million dollars during the 1930s. He built cattle auction facilities all over western and central minnesota. When the stress was overwhelming he and his cronies would load up in his pierce arrow and race the thousand miles to Denver and have a three day "vacation" then race back and get to work. How would he do that today if he had to stop twice a day to recharge? For three hours each stop? To go from a car that was probably built in 1920 or so that topped out at 80 or 90 all day long to what they have planned for us is a travesty!

No need to get excited right now. Lawsuits will be filed. This is an appointed Board with limited powers. These edicts always lose to court challenges. We have a gazillion of these boards and commissions filled with political appointees...nepotism on California steroids. (Willie Brown got Kamalala appointed to several; they gave her "legitimacy" in California politics.) The "next big thing" in progressive politics is always rolled out in these California boards and commissions. It makes the news and introduces the topic to the intended. Then, since the topic has become a "California thing" its introduced into the legislature and enacted into law. The ban on selling new gasoline powered cars will eventually become law; unless we implode or are saved by MAGA in spite of ourselves...whichever comes first. Make California Golden Again - Vote Ultra MAGA

The "vote" was among the dozen or so members of the board. Given that they are appointed to six-year terms, all were put in place by either Brylcreem or Moonbeam. Can't wait to see this one go down in flames when legally challenged.

This is a democrat power play. They want us to know they have the power to make us do whatever they say. There will be other blue states that follows California’s lead. Count on it. While the sane in this country understand the absurdity of this edict by Gov. Brylcreem, others will hop on board. People who understand energy and how it works know this it is not feasible to force electric vehicles on us. We are not ready to abandon the internal combustion engine or gas and oil, not even close. The question is why are they doing this when they know it is not possible? Can someone please address this? Let’s break this down and find out. Are there any sane opposition to this madness? If so, please come forward and lay out the facts for the American people.

Typical democrat, celebrating legislation that: 1. is based on multiple lies (that AGW is scientifically proven, that electric cars will stop global warming, that "big oil" is a public enemy, etc.); 2. meets a fake "need" that majority of voters don't want (to replace their ICE cars with EVs); 3. will be impossible to implement (insufficient power grid, EVs too few and too expensive, etc.); 4. will cause untold hardship on the general public (statewide brownouts, stranded travelers and cargoes, lack of commuter mobility, etc.); 5. will necessarily exempt himself from its most stringent features so he doesn't have to live with its hardships. But, by all means, go ahead and celebrate: the voters in deserve everything they get.

By the way, has any enterprising journalist bothered to ask Newsom what's going to happen when ALL of California's 14,000,000 gas cars are finally replaced with EVs and they plug in to recharge daily? Seems like somebody should start asking.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. I think this is a good idea. Not because of the imagined global warming. It is a good idea because electric car technology is best introduced in urbanized regions that can provide a uniform infrastructure for electric, daily drivers. California, Tacoma/Seattle, Chicago, Boston, and D.C. are where electric vehicles should be implemented, not in the intermountain-west, where I see them everywhere. The flaw in the plan is that it is run by government who is structurally incapable of doing anything right.

Ask yourself, are all or a majority of the illegal aliens now flooding into California along with the millions already there, who are and will be paid near minimum wage, if they can even find jobs, be able to purchase an electric motor vehicle at the ultra high price points that will be charged? Or will California end up emulating Cuba with strung together 30-40 year old motor vehicles providing uncertain transportation to the masses there?

This makes me appreciate my 4-cylinder, 1.6 liter, turbocharged Mercedes-Benz engine all the more. With care, it will likely run for 200,000 miles. I´ll buy an electric car when I´m damned well good and ready - that is to say, not any time soon. Electric cars pollute in horrible ways, the infrastructure is sorely lacking, and the cost to replace a battery pack is more than the cost to replace my Mercedes-Benz engine. Hybrids are fine, I think, but electric cars aren´t ready for the mass market. They´ll get there, of course, by government mandate, but at what real cost?

We've demanded answers to the question of electric power generation capacity shortfalls for at least 20 years, here and among other Conservative contexts, #24. Handwaving or dismissiveness is the only response we're ever given. The Left are systematically constraining all our resources, to create a world of insufficiency, which is the ONLY context in which they can persuade the country that we need Socialism and more government. Another way the Devil is trying to keep us divided and locked in fear of insufficiency, by obscuring every reminder that God's grace, which is life-giving, sustaining, and redemptive, is superabundant...

Even after years of my trying to educate LDotters on the nature of California politics, too many don’t seem to know that we Republicans are in the minority here. Although the Dems do not have a 51% majority, they have more votes than we do. Thus we cannot overcome their madness at that ballot box. And no, many of us are not picking up and moving from this wonderful state. We still believe you get what you pay for and thus California is worth it. A personal note of thanks to those decent folks who spell our state’s name with a C. We aren’t nasty about your states’ names. We don’t even know what they are. When I see a K I think rudeness, ignorance.

Public approval of Biden's handling of the economy remains low in a time of high inflation, a difficult housing market and concerns about a potential U.S. government debt default.

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon has overestimated the value of the weapons it has sent to Ukraine by at least $3 billion — an accounting error that could be a boon for the war effort because it will allow the Defense Department to send more weapons now without asking Congress for more money. The acknowledgment Thursday comes at a time when Pentagon is under increased pressure by Congress to show accountability for the billions of dollars it has sent in weapons, ammunition and equipment to Ukraine and as some lawmakers question whether that level of support should continue. It also could free up

Clinton made the under-the-radar comments on Saturday at the Financial Times Weekend Festival in Washington, D.C., when questioned about Biden stumbling at the G7 Summit in Japan. "There was that heart-stopping moment when he almost fell over coming down the stairs a day or two ago," Financial Times editor Edward Luce said. "He didn't use a railing, and Jill wasn't there with him. "Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?" he asked.

A silence kept in order to hide the truth is a lie. By that maxim, there are plenty of liars among prominent Democrats who knew that the damning Trump-Russia collusion narrative was all a hoax. But they chose to remain mum, preferring instead to watch contentedly as an American president was vilified nonstop by a media-driven orgy of lies. It consumed the nation for years and inflicted untold harm. None of them had the decency to volunteer the truth. This is one of the key findings in the 306-page Durham report that the special counsel filled to the brim with documented acts of deviousness, dishonesty and malice by high officials

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and New York City Mayor Eric Adams, faced with an influx of up to 80,000 migrants, are asking President Joe Biden to waive a rule that says they have to wait six months before they can apply for and get a job.

"It’s time to declare a State of Emergency for public education in North Carolina. There’s no Executive Order like with a hurricane or the pandemic, but it’s no less important," Cooper stated.

Tim Scott’s announcement here Monday that he’s running for president came mere days before Ron DeSantis is expected to declare his own, far more ballyhooed campaign, joining Donald Trump in what has looked for months like a two-person race for the Republican nomination. Scott, polling in low single digits, is starting far behind. But in what’s likely to become an even wider field of longshot candidates, the South Carolina senator is plotting a path that many Republican donors and strategists consider credible if Trump or DeSantis falters. His campaign is powered by a sizable war chest and a record of electoral success in his home state that suggests

The NAACP Board of Directors issued a statement on Saturday warning black Americans that the state of Florida was not a safe place for them and included an official “travel advisory” calling the state “openly hostile” – but the board’s chairman, Leon Russell, apparently lives in Florida himself.

The Biden administration announced Monday that seven western states had reached an agreement to conserve critical Colorado River system water supplies amid severe drought conditions. The agreement — reached by the so-called Lower Basin states of Arizona, California and Nevada — ensures that at least 3 million acre-feet (maf), or 978 billion gallons, of Colorado River water supplies are conserved by 2027, according to the Department of the Interior (DOI) which has worked with states to address shortages. Under the plan, at least half of that amount will be conserved by 2025.
