Democrat California Governor Newsom “pulled the emergency brake” and put 41 out of 58 counties, comprising over 94% of the state’s population, in the purple tier that does not allow indoor operations for places like museums, houses of worship, gyms and restaurants. California is also strengthening its face covering “guidance” to require people to wear a mask whenever outside their home, with limited exceptions. He said a curfew is being considered.

A recent court ruling against Newsom resulted in a Permanent Injunction that restrains him from issuing further unconstitutional orders and from creating new laws. This ruling serves as a precedent to challenge the lockdown. Only the legislature has the ability to make laws. ‘Restrictions’ and ‘requirements’ based on guidance by the health authority are not statutory laws.

According to this report, the national rate for people testing positive for Covid-19 is 9.8%. California’s positivity rate increased from 3% to 4.6%, which is still less than half of the national rate.

Newsom was caught violating his own restrictions when he attended a dinner party at the French Laundry restaurant with a group of people, including California Medical Association officials, who were not practicing social distancing or wearing masks. Prior to this incident, Newsom recommended wearing masks at restaurants in between eating bites of food.

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday that most California counties will soon be in the state’s most restrictive COVID-19 tier amid a surge in cases and that the state is considering a curfew.

“California is pulling an emergency brake,” he said in announcing that 41 counties, which comprise over 94% of the state’s population, will be in the purple tier, effective Tuesday. Last week, 13 counties were in the state’s most restrictive tier.

“We are sounding the alarm,” Newsom said in a statement. “California is experiencing the fastest increase in cases we have seen yet — faster than what we experienced at the outset of the pandemic or even this summer. The spread of COVID-19, if left unchecked, could quickly overwhelm our health care system and lead to catastrophic outcomes.”

When counties are in the purple tier, indoor operations for places like museums, houses of worship, gyms and restaurants are not allowed. When counties move into the less restrictive red tier, they can resume indoor operations at several businesses — but with modifications.

Will the governor’s office and the state legislature be included in the 94% shutdown? In terms of danger from Covid, there is no difference between the Governor’s office, the state legislature versus business offices and other large assemblies.

Hey Gov Newsom, stop the hypocrisy. If you shut down the rest of California, shut down your office and legislature as well. And watch those visits to restaurants.

I will NEVER, EVER, EVER wear a mask outside! The fresh air and that big ball of yellow gas that hangs in the sky every day is all the disinfectant needed to kill the wuflu. These are NOT LAWS, people! You cannot be arrested or fined for doing nothing illegal! Please, fellow Californians, defy this bullcrap “edict” of our fascist dictator gruesome new-scum – DO NOT WEAR A MASK OUTSIDE, EVER!!! Please, I beg you, or we will see ALL our Freedoms disappear!
