Conservative radio host Larry Elder blasted San Fransisco Mayor London Breed for her pilot program to pay high risk individuals to not shoot others. The Dream Keeper Fellowship will pay 10 people $300 each month for not picking up a gun. Elder is currently the Republican contender if California Governor Gavin Newsom is recalled. He appeared on Hannity Wednesday night.

“As to this business about paying criminals not to shoot each other, why didn’t we think of that before?” Elder joked with host Sean Hannity. “Why don’t we pay shoplifters not to shoplift? I mean, this is just madness.”

As a result, Elder concluded to contest Newsom during the upcoming recall election. “This is California and this is the kind of stuff that Gavin Newsom has been doing,” Elder said. “And you are quite right about him shutting down the state and denying kids in school education while his own kids were enjoying in-person private education.”

Meanwhile, 50% of third graders could not read at an age-proficient level. “And the math scores are even worse, even though we’re spending about 15 grand per student per year,” Elder said. “I will be championing choice in education, which is where the left and Gavin Newsom has absolutely gone ballistic.”

A similar program in Richmond, California saw a 70% reduction in shootings and homicides.

Americans should brace for ‘real pain’ at the gas pump

A spike in gas prices will likely begin in March, according to Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum at GasBuddy. De Haan says all Americans may soon be facing California-esque gas prices.

Biden’s rising inflation could push gas prices for regular unleaded fuel to above $4 a gallon. “We’ll start to see gasoline demand surge, along with refiners doing maintenance ahead of the summer driving season, creating a squeeze” De Haan told Fox Business.

Earlier this month, GasBuddy projected the national average price for a gallon of gasoline could climb to a high of $4.13 in June. California cities could have average costs of over $5. Currently the nationwide average is $3.314 per gallon according to the American Automobile Association.

The highest-priced gas averages are $4.650 in California, and Texas sits at the lowest average of $2.942. Nonetheless, U.S. drivers are being warned to expect “real pain” at the pump when the spring travel surge begins.

Inflation is currently at the highest level in almost 40 years. Last week the Labor Department said the consumer price index has risen 7 percent over the last year. President Biden has called inflation “a global challenge” and attempted to claim the latest numbers are good news, point to a monthly rate of price increases around December.

After the report came out, Biden said, “Today’s report—which shows a meaningful reduction in headline inflation over last month, with gas prices and food prices falling—demonstrates that we are making progress in slowing the rate of price increases.”

“At the same time, this report underscores that we still have more work to do, with price increases still too high and squeezing family budgets” Biden did admit.

Daily Mail reports “nationwide, gas prices did drop 2.2 percent in December from the prior month, but remained 50 percent higher than a year ago. Food prices were up 0.5 percent on the month and 6.3 percent higher than a year ago, making it unclear what falling food prices Biden was referring to.”
