California Governor Newsom’s Office Says To Wear Mask ‘In Between Bites’ At Restaurants

The California governor’s office put out a tweet advising, “Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.” The public balked at the ridiculous advisory. California’s published guidance for dining in restaurants does not mention wearing a mask in between bites. And it is merely a “guidance,” not a law.

The California governor’s office put out a tweet on Saturday advising that restaurant-goers keep their masks on while dining. “Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend?” the tweet reads. “Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.”

In California, masks are required for anyone going outside their home, as well as workers in customer-facing businesses, offices, factories, and health care professionals, among others, according to the state’s COVID-19 guidance.

While children under 2 years old and those with breathing troubles or medical exemptions do not need to wear a mask, everyone else is required to wear them in all indoor public places — and also outdoors if keeping 6 feet of social distance with others isn’t possible.

The official guidance does say that masks can be removed for a number of reasons, including eating or drinking. However, the tweet from Governor Gavin Newsom’s office offered somewhat different advice, which confused some Twitter users.

“I’m very confused by this tweet. The image suggests you should only take your mask off once when you begin a meal but the text suggests you should put it back on between bites,” journalist Matthew Fuhrman wrote, referring to the graphic shared in the tweet.

“Should we wash our hands after touching our mask each time we remove it between bites? What if I’m eating chips and salsa and I go for a double dip? Is that technically two bites since it’s the same chip?” another person asked.

“This violates the @WHO ‘Dont’s of Mask wearing,'” another person tweeted, including a graphic from the World Health Organization which advises people to avoid touching their mask as much as possible, and to wash their hands before touching their mask and after discarding it.

VP Debate: Mike Pence Won Debate Against Kamala Harris

The debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Kamala Harris was widely viewed by Americans this week because Joe Biden, 78, shows signs of mental decline, which means that if he is elected, Senator Harris would have uncommon influence over the administration and could even replace Biden. Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal wrote that Pence won the second half of the debate because Harris had no answer on foreign policy, no answer on court-packing, and a weak answer on law and order. Telemundo removed its polling results after it showed that Pence won it with 76% of the vote.

Telemundo removed these polling results

Summary (of the nine discussion topics):

1. COVID Response – Pence won – a body-blow slamming Kamala on vaccines: “stop playing politics with people’s lives.”

2. Health Of Candidates – Tie – neither candidate answered but if we had to pick, Pence shaded it as Kamala discussed herself.

3. The Economy – Pence won – the vice-president crushed Harris on Biden taxes (briefly silencing her over Trump tax cut repeal).

4. Climate Change – Pence won – perhaps surprisingly but Harris was unable to recover from being cornered on her sponsorship of the Green New Deal

5. China – Pence won – Harris facts all over the place and Pence closed with Biden’s “cheerleading” for China.

6. Foreign Relations – Tie – both candidates parried each other’s running mate’s performance

7. The Supreme Court – Pence won – Harris refused to answer the question of packing the court and Pence was frank about being “pro-life.”

8. Racial Justice – Pence won – again rather stunningly, Pence crushed Harris on misleading quotes and soundbites

9. Transfer Of Power – Pence won – while Harris went “vote now”, Pence reminded the audience that Harris party spent the last four years trying to overturn the previous election

The FBI Claims It Foiled a Plot to Kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer

The corrupt FBI says it foiled a plot by six members of a militia to kidnap Michigan Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer at her vacation home and overthrow the state government. The FBI reported that the group talked about creating a society that followed the US Bill of Rights and where they could be self-sufficient.

In addition, Michigan’s Attorney General announced that her office filed state charges against six militia conspirators who plotted to kill and/or kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and seven more who were “linked’ to the Wolverine Watchmen militia group that have been charged under Michigan’s anti-terrorism law. Leftists blamed President Trump and white power for the plot, however, one of the ringleaders, Brandon Caserta, filmed himself in front of an anarchy flag and called Trump a “tyrant” indicating that the arrestees are anarchists, not Republicans.

UPDATE #1:  Defense attorneys for the guys accused of plotting to kidnap the governor of Michigan say “one of the most active leaders” was an FBI informant who “pushed” the rest of the group to engage in a “crackpot” scheme.

UPDATE #2:  One of the alleged plotters, Daniel Harris, a 23-year old former Marine, attended a Black Lives Matter rally eaarlier this year, indicating he is not a white supremacist.

In addition to the six alleged militia members charged by the Feds earlier, another seven alleged members of the militia group, known as the “Wolverine Watchmen”, were charged in the conspiracy and have all been taken into custody for purportedly trying to target law enforcement officials. That brings the total arrested to 13, according to the AP.

“The individuals in custody are suspected to have attempted to identify home addresses of law enforcement officers in order to target them, made threats of violence intended to instigate a civil war, and engaged in planning and training for an operation to attack the capitol building of Michigan, and to kidnap government officials, including the governor of Michigan,” AG Nessel said.

The AG then explained that the charges are still subject to change once federal law enforcement officials review all the evidence collected during a raid of 24-year-old Ty Garbin’s home in Hartland on Wednesday night.

On social media, leftists took things a step further, as they tried to connect the members of the Wolverine Watchmen to the Oklahoma City bombing carried out by alleged militia member Timothy McVeigh.

St. Louis: The McCloskeys Are Indicted. Prosecutor’s Office Reassembled Their Gun to Make It ‘Lethal’

A grand jury indicted Mark and Patricia McCloskey on charges of exhibiting guns at protesters in a June incident in their neighborhood and added a charge of tampering with evidence for both members of the couple.

It is bizarre that the McCloskeys were charged with tampering with evidence when the office of the prosecuting Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who was funded by George Soros, ordered the crime lab to reassemble Patricia McCloskey’s handgun to fire as it had been disabled, and the prosecutors tampered with evidence. The gun was intentionally made inoperable by the McCloskeys because it was used as a prop in a trial. In Missouri, police and prosecutors must prove that a weapon is “readily” capable of lethal use.

Prosecutor Gardner’s office is denying people a legal defense of their property with lethal force under what’s known as the Castle Doctrine. Prosecutors refused to bring charges against nine protesters who broke down a gate and trespassed on private property.

Missouri Governor Mike Parson has said he will pardon the couple if they are convicted.

The gun Patricia McCloskey waved at protesters was inoperable when it arrived at the St. Louis police crime lab, but a member of Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s staff ordered crime lab experts to disassemble and reassemble it and wrote that it was “readily capable of lethal use” in charging documents filed Monday, 5 On Your Side has learned.

In Missouri, police and prosecutors must prove that a weapon is “readily” capable of lethal use when it is used in the type of crime with which the McCloskeys have been charged.

Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley ordered crime lab staff members to field strip the handgun and found it had been assembled incorrectly. Specifically, the firing pin spring was put in front of the firing pin, which was backward, and made the gun incapable of firing, according to documents obtained by 5 On Your Side.

Firearms experts then put the gun back together in the correct order and test-fired it, finding that it worked, according to the documents.

Crime lab workers photographed the disassembly and reassembly of the gun, according to the documents.

Patricia McCloskey and her husband, Mark McCloskey, have said the handgun Patricia McCloskey waved at protesters was inoperable because they had used it as a prop during a lawsuit they once filed against a gun manufacturer. In order to bring it into a courtroom, they made it inoperable.

Their attorney, Joel Schwartz, confirmed to 5 On Your Side that the McCloskeys intentionally misplaced the firing pin on the gun and that it was in that condition when Patricia McCloskey waved it at protesters and turned it into their former attorney Al Watkins.

“It’s disheartening to learn that a law enforcement agency altered evidence in order to prosecute an innocent member of the community,” Schwartz said.

Wauwatosa, Wisconsin: BLM Riots in the Suburbs, Threatening People in Homes

On October 7, the prosecuting attorney announced that black Officer Joseph Mensah would not face any criminal charges after he fatally shot Alvin Cole, who reportedly fired first; this led to riots in Wauwatosa by Black Lives Matter and Antifa mercenaries. Rioters vandalized and looted businesses and caused damage to residential homes. The city is bracing for more destruction and is under curfew.

In February, Officer Mensah shot and killed Alvin Cole, a 17-year old black youth, in the parking lot of Mayfair Mall. The prosecutor said that Cole ran from the police, discharged a firearm he was carrying and was ordered to surrender the weapon. He did not surrender the weapon and was fired upon by Officer Mensah, causing his death. A witness said that Cole displayed a stolen 9 mm pistol while he was at the mall during an argument with another patron.

Officer Mensah has shot and killed a total of three people, including Cole, since 2015, and their families have called for him to be fired and criminally charged.

In August, 50 protesters gathered outside of Officer Mensah’s home and he reported that he was physically assaulted by them and someone fired a shotgun into the house.


A police officer in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, will not face criminal charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Alvin Cole, the prosecutor reviewing the case said Wednesday.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm wrote in a letter to the Wauwatosa police chief that there was “sufficient evidence” showing that officer Joseph Mensah believed deadly force was necessary and “that belief was objectively reasonable.”
“I do not believe that the State could disprove self-defense or defense of others in this case and therefore could not meet the burden required to charge Officer Mensah. With this I conclude my criminal review of the matter,” Chisholm wrote about his decision.
Kim Motley, an attorney for Cole’s family, told CNN the family learned about the decision in a meeting with Chisholm on Wednesday and said the district attorney is not stating Cole’s shooting was justified.
“We’ve always maintained that Officer Joseph Mensah should be held accountable for his actions, and unfortunately today, we disagree with Chisholm’s assessment of what he saw,” the attorney told reporters on Wednesday.
Cole was shot and killed outside a Wauwatosa mall on February 2 when police responded to a disturbance call, police said. Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber told reporters at the time that Cole fired a gun before an officer returned fire.
Weber called Cole’s death a tragedy in a statement on Wednesday and said the department “sympathizes with his family as they, and others, continue to grieve the loss of their loved one.”
“The administration of justice demands a legal and purposeful review of the facts. That was done in this case,” Weber said. “Police officers are put into difficult situations that require a decision to be made in fractions of seconds.”
In his report, Chisholm said Cole had a stolen 9 mm pistol while he was at the mall and displayed the pistol during an argument with another patron.
“He was encountered by Wauwatosa Police officers in the parking lot of Mayfair Mall, ran from the police, discharged the firearm and was ordered to surrender the weapon,” Chisholm wrote. “He did not surrender the weapon and was fired upon by Officer Mensah causing his death.”
Chisholm released an eight-minute compilation video of the night Cole was fatally shot.
The video shows what looks like an officer walking toward something and pointing a gun. Someone says “drop the gun,” before a gunshot sounds. Cole cannot be seen in the footage at the time of the shooting. What sounds like several gunshots can be heard soon afterward.
