CA Governor’s $1 Billion Aid Goes To…China?


The California Governor, Gavin Newsom, announced a deal with a Chinese electric car manufacturer, about two weeks ago, to purchase masks for the coronavirus pandemic. The nearly $1 Billion deal includes the Chinese company, BYD, developing 200 million masks a month.

Lawmakers around the country have looked at the deal with a bit of skepticism, given the timing, amount of money, and the lack of transparency of the deal. They want to know if there are any guarantees in the deal as to what the money will be used for.

Furthermore, BYD hasn’t produced medical equipment or supplies before. We have American based companies doing that right now. Why not give one of these companies the $1 Billion deal?

Why the secrecy and why China?

 

That's exactly what state Senator Jim Nielsen wants to know.

“I must emphasize, that’s a big deal,” GOP state Sen. Jim Nielsen said during a legislative oversight hearing Tuesday. “And what is in the contract that ensures the deliverability — timely — is going to be really, really important."

Given that Chinese-produced medical supplies and equipment around the world have been defective or even in some cases tainted, this seems like a risky deal. Kinda like shaking hands with the devil at this time.

BYD has an apparent history of delivering a finished product well under the expected quality, too, according to a Times investigation in 2018. Couple that with workplace safety violations like, get this, "errors in the proper use of respirators - safety masks - for its employees".

Another key revelation is that BYD has spent over $1 million lobbying the state of California officials since 2014.

The company has spent more than $1 million lobbying state officials since 2014 and made a $50,000 contribution to the 2018 ballot measure campaign to keep in place California’s new taxes on gas and diesel sales.

So, here we have a Chinese company who's lobbying legislators in the U.S. getting a $1 billion dollar deal from a pandemic in which China caused while American companies are shut down yet trying to contribute in the same fashion as BYD is. Folks, that's taxpayer money going to China!

Our politicians are bailing out Chinese companies while delaying bills to fund American small businesses. How much more of this will the American people take?

  1. America first always! We can be denied by a foreign company for many reasons. But, if we deal with our own internal suppliers, and manufacturers, they will be easier to deal with. And, consider this, they will be employing our own folks, and buying local ingredients, or materials, needed to make their product. Its stupid to put our faith in foreign suppliers, or manufacturers!.

    1. The Demos got together to have ice cream and it froze there little brains. So Floyd your right.

  2. Doesn’t that sound a little bit fishy ? Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate everything , why not start in her own back yard .

  3. SURELY THERE MUST BE ENOUGH NUTS IN CALIFORIA TO RID THEMSELVES OF THIS COMMUNIST PARTY AND GOVERNOR..GIVE IT A TRY!!!

  4. Nothing new, Pelosi supports Biden and Biden and his son and John Kerry’s son has the $1 billion China Bank connection. Now it is time for Biden’s and Co including Nancy Pelosi to step up to the plate and pay back time.

  5. Sounds like misappropriation of funds, collusion, etc. Where is the DOJ? Get some good American, non leftist lawyers to put it togeher, sue and prosecute these criminal traitors with no right to the office they hold.

  6. Gavin Newsom is a Democrat, one of the worst. He is a step down from another “politician” who ruled Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. California is also the home of Harris, Pelosi, Schiff, and Waters. The “big four” in anti-Trump rhetoric, obstruction, Trump Derangement Syndrome, American Socialism, Abortion, Impeachment, and other “fun” political agendas. California was a great state until they allowed these politicians to have power to run their state and our nation. What did they get for it; a flood of illegal aliens, vote harvesting, voter fraud (big time), etc. California, be careful who you allow to have the reigns of power, Germany made that mistake and so can we America. Dems, your leadership has gone “south”. Walk away. Do you really want socialism in America? Do you really want open borders in America? Do you really want Abortion on Demand in America? Walk away while there is still time. This is no longer the Democratic party you joined years ago, it has changed and the change is a threat to the country you love and live in, America. Walk away, tell your democratic political leaders you’ve had enough of their anti-American ideas. I did and you can too – it just takes a single step!

    1. You are right, Larry! I have family that survived the communist regime. These brainless democrats should go live in China, Cuba, Venezuela and find out what it is like. You disagree with them, you are dead!! Open borders, sex slavery, totalatarian, no freedom nor constitution, no morals, no love, no God…..I pray you democrats don’t find out the hard way. by believing the Chinese propaganda. We will lose our freedom by letting the Chinese take us down the sewer. Sad, God help us. Gates, Hollywood, wake up!!!!

  7. Why on earth would anyone be making deals with China after what had just happened, everybody knew that China was involved in this covid19 virus!
    This dr Fauci fancies himself a savior of man kind, he predicted this pandemic in 2017 right after Trump became president. Now Fauci gave China 3.5 million for the Wuhan laboratory in 2014 and did it with an end run around the state dept ruling that no funds were to be released to China for anything! Right there is treason for Fauci.
    Now stay with me, China was ticked off because of the trade agreement and Trump wasn’t about to budge.
    The democrats tried and failed with great expense to the taxpayers twice to get rid of Trump because he been digging up dirt on the anti-American democrats. Now I truly believe there’s collusion between the democrats and China in letting this virus go throughout the world. Is it a coincidence? I don’t think so!

  8. This Governor should be charged with treason – giving aid to the enemy. China is trying to destroy our economy so they can take us over without firing a shot. China cannot be trusted. They have proved that in the quality of goods they have sent over here. Anybody that would kill our pets have proved that they have no sympathy for human life.

  9. This seams like just another stab in the back of US citizens especially californians. It must be a crime of some sort. We need to get this governor recalled for crimes against legal citizens. All of our tax money in california is going to illegals. Can’t the federal government help us!

  10. Your a bigger jerk than I originally thought. What’s in this for you. Get the hell away from China trade and take responsibility for CA messes-ie.-public retirement funds, homeless. Go to work for CA instead of your “family “

  11. So, we already KNOW that Gavin Newsome is owned by the CCP, as is his auntie Nancy and Diane Feinstein, who had a chinese spy for her limousine driver for some 20 years. Nothing new with the traitors to America….

  12. God, this guy needs to go. PRONTO. Pelose nephew apples does not felling from a tree. Brown, Pelose Getty and Newsom for families running CaliMexico see on YouTube.

  13. Not promoting sales of America products at this point in time is Traitorous. Let’s help our small businesses grow with US funds, that doubles the return, US jobs and US revenue versus Chinese jobs and Chinese revenue. You could actually be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

  14. The communist country we call California has found their like in China and have tried to emulate them with draconian laws, personal restraints to freedoms, and an outward exchange of wealth to a country that has shown is America’s enemy looking to undermine us. California with its socialist/communist controlled leanings and infiltration into California’s high tech industry provide a perfect collaboration to do so. MOuth pieces from the Ho;;ywood elites also provide an internal voice for China’s ambitions.

  15. This is why Trump campaigned on America first. California is a 3rd world state. The Governor acts like their is all kinds of endless money to burn. To think this is a China project. Governor should pack up and move to China!

  16. Well if Ca made the deal then they should be the ones paying for it and No bailout money for them.

  17. We should be keeping our money here to help our own people and businesses!!
    How dare he do this to the AMERICAN people!!
    We need that money here to feed and shelter our people!!!!

  18. Are we going to find out someday that Joe Biden and his Crime Family owns the company in China that got the money from Newsom.

  19. This typical California politics. Its been like this ever since Pete Wilson retired. He was the last conservative governor in California. He fixed our labor law ( Grey Davis immediately destroyed the fix) unfortunately we could not get rid of Gray fast enough. Pete Wilson also left office with the state having a large surplus of money. Well done Pete too bad you replacements have no clue what they are doing.

  20. I am quite sure that a lot of us Americans have Ben hollering about what has ben going on for a long time . But as usual , Congress always turns a diff ear to our warnings and fears . Anyone with common sense knows that you don’t make bed partners out of a rattlesnake . And that is just what they. Have done . And we the American people have paid for it , while they filled their bank accounts with political graff money. The majority of Chinese products are of inferior quality and will tear up in short order. With a very hard time getting replacement parts , which are extremely expensive . I hope and pray that this is a wake up call . Another problem that needs to be addressed here in that USA , is allowing foreign country’s to purchase farm land and companies in the US . WAKE UP if it isn’t already to late .

  21. Someone is getting a big kick back. Check all monies he or the DNC receives this smacks of a corrupt deal . It needs to be investigated by independent investigators.

  22. We are desperately need to start working to feed our family, keep our house payment, and other necessities. $1 billion dollar from our taxes should has been used here in U.S.A. to start manufacturing our own safety products. Holland bough some mask for the virus which were made very cheap. Holland returned them to China. My husband bought a gel made in China that burned his scalp. China is not interesting in helping us, but ruining us physically, economically, emotionally, and finally exterminating us with fake, and toxic medicines. That deal should be cancelled as soon as possible.

  23. THIS NEWSOM GUY IS A COMPLETE JACK-ASS. HE CAN’T EVEN SEE WHAT CHINA IS TRYING TO PULL. HE CAN’T SEE THAT CHINA IS USING HIM AND THE DEMOCRAT TRAITORS. HE IS THE ONE OF THE WORST OF GOVERNORS THAT YOU PEOPLE IN CALIF HAD. CHINA WANTS OT GET A FOOT HOLD ON CALIF AND KEEP MOVING ON IN THE MORON. AND HERE TRUMP HAS STOPPED THEM FROM MOVING IN AND HE IS LETTING IN THE ENEMY. WAY TO GO IDIOT NEWSOM HERE WE HAVE TRUMP THAT HELPED HIM THROUGH THE CHINESE VIRUS AND YOU TURN AROUND AND STAB TRUMP IN THE BACK.———-MORON.!!!

  24. Has the whole world gone mad? I can’t believe even a liberal extremist would be stupid enough to vote these folks back in office. It is like going back to the poisoned water hole when you have fresh water in your back yard.
