The Democrat leadership are hypocrites. The American people have example after example of that being the case- and we know that even Democrat voters are sick of their radical leftist push into Marxism, with bizarre demands to elevate foreign cultures and to destroy American norms and values.
How about Democrats restricting travel for American citizens- and then not obeying their own rules?
Sounds like a Democrat- right? Even Democrats are sick and tired of Democrats. Polls show that Demos are rejecting Joe Biden and his administration, who took on a very ‘woke’ agenda and is pushing hardships on American citizens that we do not deserve.
Democrat Gavin Newsom, the nephew of radical leftist US Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), is viewed as the Democrat Party’s gold boy, who alone- they believe- has the power to reignite the passion for the party among Democrat voters. But if those Democrat voters find out that he is an elitist hypocrite- will that damage their chances?
Newsom is on the run – with terrible PR because his double standards for the ‘peasant class’ and what he does in his own life is making national news- and that is not good for the very well-connected, spoiled Democrat Governor of California.
While Newsom has nice hair, his actions have been annoying the residents of the beautiful but embattled state of California- a once proud, wealthy, conservative state that has been overrun with embarrassing poverty and crime.
According to very recent media sources: Newsom’s office has gone on the offensive to justify Newsom’s visit to Montana despite the California state legislature banning state-funded travel to the Treasure State.
News of Newsom’s visit to Montana was first reported Tuesday by CalMatters journalist Emily Hoeven, who wrote on Twitter that the Governor’s office “had been loath to disclose the location until now.”
SCOOP! The travel ban applies to using state funds. The Governor’s travel is not being paid by the state. Connecting the two is an attempt at gotcha journalism that is neither gotcha nor journalism. The governor is on a vacation with his family. He will return later this week

The Californian state legislature, in a 2016 law, forbade any “state agency and the Legislature from requiring any of its employees, officers or members to travel to, or approving a request for state-funded or state-sponsored travel to, any state that, after June 26, 2015,” enacted laws assumed to be anti-LGBT.
Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia were added to the list in 2021 after the states passed what Bonta deemed to be “anti-LGBTQ+ legislation” intended to “ban transgender youth from playing sports, block access to life-saving care or otherwise limit the rights of members of the LGBTQ+ community,” according to a June 2021 news release from the attorney general’s office.
Attorney General Bonta to Add Five States to Travel Restrictions List as a Result of Wave of New Anti-LGBTQ+ LegislationSAN FRANCISCO – California Attorney General Rob Bonta today announced that California will restrict state-funded travel to Arkansas, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia as a result of new anti-LGBTQ+ legislation recently enacted in each state.
The states are a part of a recent, dangerous wave of discriminatory new bills signed into law in states across the country that directly work to ban transgender youth from playing sports, block access to life-saving care, or otherwise limit the rights of members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Many states pushing these new discriminatory laws are already on California’s travel restrictions list.
The new restrictions on state-funded travel to the states announced today are prescribed by law in California pursuant to Assembly Bill 1887 (AB 1887), which was enacted in 2016.
“Assembly Bill 1887 is about aligning our dollars with our values,” said Attorney General Bonta. “When states discriminate against LGBTQ+ Americans, California law requires our office to take action. These new additions to the state-funded travel restrictions list are about exactly that. It’s been 52 years to the day since the Stonewall Riots began, but that same fight remains all too alive and well in this country. Rather than focusing on solving real issues, some politicians think it’s in their best interest to demonize trans youth and block life-saving care. Make no mistake: We’re in the midst of an unprecedented wave of bigotry and discrimination in this country — and the State of California is not going to support it.”
In creating AB 1887, the California Legislature determined that California must take action to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.
To that end, the law restricts a state agency, department, board, or commission from authorizing state-funded travel to a state that, after June 26, 2015, has enacted a law authorizing, or repealing existing protections against, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
With the additions announced today, there will be a total of 17 states on California’s state-funded travel restrictions list.
Montana is being added to California’s state-funded travel restrictions list as a result of House Bill 112 and Senate Bill 215. Signed into law on May 7, House Bill 112 prevents transgender women and girls from participating in school sports consistent with their gender identity.
Signed into law on April 22, Senate Bill 215 overrides existing state and local laws and policies that prohibit discrimination against LGBTQ+ Americans. It threatens to, among other effects, allow businesses to refuse a broad range of services to same-sex couples because of their sexual orientation alone.
Given the effective date for the new laws, Montana, pursuant to AB 1887, will be added to California’s travel restrictions list on July 1, 2021.
