“This brazen power grab was not authorized by state law and violates both the Elections Clause and Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution.”
The Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee and California Republican Party sued Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state’s Secretary of State Alex Padilla on Sunday, claiming an executive order sending mail-in ballots to all registered voters in the state is an “illegal power grab” that invites potential fraud.
This has led to concerns that ballots sent to people who have moved or died will end up being filled out and submitted anyway unless voter rolls are inspected and cleaned out before ballots are mailed. Many Republicans have expressed concern that Democrats could try using these ballots improperly, to swing races in their favor.
“Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections…Newsom’s illegal power grab is a recipe for disaster that would destroy the confidence Californians deserve to have in the security of their vote.” -RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
The hits just keep on coming for Gavin Newsom as he continues to take a pummeling from all directions. The governor has been under alot of fire over his egregious lockdown orders as well. Newsom declared an emergency way back on March 4th, which seems like forever ago, and he is really dragging his feet on calling an end to the crisis.
But the people are not taking it lying down! We are fighting back against the Newsom Administration’s gross overreaches!
Now Newsom’s push to send everyone a mail-in ballot when we are still 5 months away from the election is too extreme for many people. I refuse to vote by mail! The only way I will vote is if I get to actually put my ballot into the box! I will stand in a line for hours to vote for Trump. I would walk across the state to make sure I do my duty to keep this revolution of ours going!
The Democrats are total tricksters, liars, swindlers, and thieves! They will do and say ANYTHING in order to win this election, up to and including faking the severity of a viral outbreak just so they can push for all mail-in voting…
I am glad that so many people are starting to speak up and fight against these out of control politicians in California. Many people across the country are starting to understand that what happens in California is not staying in California. Our crazy is being exported into other states and causing chaos at the national level.
If the Dems had their way, what you are seeing in California would be the standard for the country, attempts at socialist-style centralized planning for industries and the suspension of the U.S. Constitution.
Just think of some of the Democrat politicians we have in California, Schiff, Pelosi, Kamala, Feinstein, Swalwell, Maxine Waters, Ted Lieu…the list goes on and they are all terrible politicians that are absolutely destroying our country! They must be removed from office at the first available opportunity before they cause more damage!
Thankfully people are starting to notice and fight back! Keep it up California! We can save our beautiful state! With President Trump on our side we actually have a chance to do this, his political instincts are second to none!
The other Republicans just need to follow his lead and we can take back California!
“Under the governor’s edicts, Bishop Hodges can bump shoulders with congregants at a shopping mall, but he can’t minister to them in a safe and sanitary church sanctuary…That is blatant religious discrimination, and we hope the Supreme Court agrees.”
The Rancho Santa Fe-based Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund filed an emergency motion Saturday morning with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of South Bay United Pentecostal Church seeking an injunction to block Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order to temporarily stop in-person church services.
HERE. WE. GO! The fight to reopen the churches in California, along with the rest of the state, is just getting started. We were really hoping that Governor Gavin Newsom would listen to reason, respect the rule of law, and protect the Rights guaranteed in the Constitution…What fools we were for expecting him to do his job. Instead, Newsom ran to the rigged 9th Circuit Court to uphold his tyrannical actions that the state can suspend the U.S. Constitution due to the coronavirus crisis.
Crying to the rigged 9th Circuit to uphold clearly unconstitutional behavior is a trend among Democrat leaders when they want to go against the wishes of the people.
Gavin Newsom’s extreme lockdowns lead to the church asking for an emergency injunction to immediately resume in-person church gatherings. The motion was filed after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 to deny the Chula Vista church’s request for an emergency injunction late Friday night.
“Gov. Newsom would apparently rather litigate this case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court than allow a single Californian to go to church,” -Charles LiMandri, chief litigation counsel for the Defense Fund
The churches have a solid legal standing and they have garnered vocal support from both the U.S. Department of Justice and the President of the United States himself. They have both said that California churches must be allowed to reopen immediately.
San Diego County, an area with a population of over 3.3 million people, has only seen about 250 covid related deaths, and even fewer “pure covid” deaths. A “pure covid” death is when the patient ONLY suffered from covid and no other potential complications. The vast majority of covid deaths are coming from people that already had severe underlying health problems.
It makes zero sense that you can go into a Walmart or Target with hundreds of other strangers, but you can’t go sit in a small church…It really seems like Gavin Newsom, the Attorney General Xavier Becerra, and the Democrats on the 9th Circuit are taking their anger against Trump out on these small churches. All they are doing is creating more Trump supporters.
While we desperately need a return to the old normal, the longer the Dems try to force this “new” normal on people just ends up turning more against them. Dems own businesses too. Dems go to church too. Dems enjoy freedom too. Many of them can see they are being hurt by their Glorious Socialist Leader’s decision to shutdown the California economy over a virus with a 99.9999% survival rate.
At the end of the day, the shutdown was all about hampering the Trump economy because this was literally the only way they were ever going to create a recession during the Trump Era. I’ve explained on my Twitter account how President Trump has broken the old cycle of “Boom-to-Bust” by giving the economy room to grow when possible and room to shrink when necessary.
Also President Trump bringing oil production back to the United States was yuge as that ended our dependence on foreign oil, thus ending the ability for the Deep State to cause an incident in the Middle-East to draw Trump into a war. This is mostly how Trump has avoided starting new conflicts.
So when you look at the whole picture, the shutdown and subsequent panic over the virus was the ONLY way they were going to stop the Trump economy from reaching its full potential. Even then, they have only succeeded at delaying it, once the shutdown ends (and it will) the economy will bounce back like never before!
This is why Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, Inslee, and other Dems are working very hard to keep this pandemic going as long as possible. They want to keep the economy weak and secure mail-in voting at the same time, they believe that is their path to victory and perhaps they are right…It really does seem like the only way Dems can win at this point is by artificially hurting the Trump economy and pushing a potentially rigged mail-in voting scheme…
As far as I can see, that is the real reason behind keeping these lockdowns from being lifted. They don’t want people to go back to church, or work just yet, not until Top Dems have had a chance to rig the election. This is why it is so important for us to fight these lockdowns. Whether you are even religious or not, if you believe in the U.S. Constitution you know that our Founders guaranteed the unimpeded right to worship.
I stand with the churches of California against the corrupt and out of control Gavin Newsom. I am so glad to see they are fighting against his very tyrannical behavior trying to deprive us of our 1st Amendment Rights. Gruesome Newsom is downright unamerican for what he is attempting to do!
The Supreme Court of the United States will slap him down, I am sure of it. Let us just hope it’s an expedited process and these churches are allowed to open back up without these crushing restrictions very soon.
I am not surprised at all that the crazy 9th Circuit Court leapt at the chance to uphold the shutdown of thousands of churches in California. This is the same appeals court that banned a small annual nativity scene in Santa Monica!
On Friday a three-judge appeals panel voted 3-2 in favor of the state, saying plaintiffs had little chance of winning their appeal. The majority agreed with the state’s argument that “constitutional rights may be reasonably restricted” in extraordinary circumstances.
I am trying to figure out how a virus that represents a survival rate of 99.9999% constitutes as extraordinary circumstances…indeed these politicians are overreacting, and unfortunately being aided and abetted by corrupt judges on the 9th Circuit Court.
This is absolutely outrageous and every American should be speaking out against this heinous decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. That a court, which is supposed to be all about the rule of law, can even say that our constitutional freedoms can be suspended is totally insane. Any judge that votes to suspend the Constitution should be removed from the bench immediately.
This crazy court has a long and storied history of attacking Christianity and siding with far-Left causes. There is a reason that smart people refer to it as the 9th Circus Court of Appeals.
The court actually also has a long history of having its stupid decisions overturned by smarter courts that actually believe in the rule of law. There is a reason the two California senators Kamala “Heels Up” Harris and Dianne “I had a Chinese Spy for a Personal Driver” Feinstein (aka the Cryptkeeper) are fighting hard to make sure Trump can’t appoint anyone to the 9th without their express approval.
Already Trump has an appointee on the 9th Circuit bench in the patriot Judge Daniel Collins who wrote a long dissent against the decision to close churches, saying the church closures “likely violates the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.”
I am wondering how the 9th Circuit can even come to such a decision when the Department of Justice has issued multiple warnings that California is clearly engaging in discrimination by not allowing churches to resume opening. The law really seems to be 100% clear on this; the state has zero authority to enforce these lockdowns when doing so through executive orders.
There really seems to be a bit of animus in the way Gavin Newsom and the 9th Circuit are targeting the churches. Especially after President Trump made his declaration that churches must be deemed essential services. It really feels like they are taking it personally and making it political when it doesn’t have to be.
The churches are not asking for special treatment, they are just asking for equal treatment! They are arguing that if you can go into a Walmart then you can also go into a church, and legally that should be an open and shut case. This really is a no-brainer decision and only a crazy Liberal can twist the law around to fit their twisted agenda.
We cannot allow this to continue. We must not allow this to continue. BREAK THE LOCKDOWN!
Whoever made and flew the “End His Tyranny” banner with Newsom’s face over the flag of the German Reich deserves a medal.
“Freedom is non-partisan. Whether you’re Republican, Democrat, Conservative, we can all agree at the end of the day, race aside, religion aside, freedom is non-partisan,”
Memorial Day weekend brought the largest protest against the statewide shutdown at the Capitol to date. A huge crowd of people gathered on 10th Street for what was called “Liberty Fest.” The protesters are calling for a faster plan to move ahead with reopening the state. Many people have criticized the Newsom administration of prioritizing certain parts of the economy over others, a clear case of discrimination.
There has been a massive pushback in California against the Newsom Administration as people grow increasingly restless due to these crushing lockdowns. Many people have had enough and that frustration certainly showed today as thousands of patriots took to the streets despite clear orders not to do so.
The protesters didn’t have a permit because conveniently no permits are being issued right now to allow protesting…umm any government that doesn’t allow citizens to engage in protesting, virus or not, is a tyrannical government that should be overthrown.
As President John F. Kennedy once said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”
Patriots even came from other states to show us a lot of love and support. Letting us know that they stand with the freedom loving people of California against the Oppressor Gavin Newsom. It is very comforting to know that we have many friends outside of the state’s borders! I sincerely appreciate all the support from you all, know that we love you and stand with you as well! We are all Americans and we all deserve our God-given freedoms!
Many people were already concerned that they had to give up 14 days of their lives in order to “stop the spread” or “flatten the curve”, or whatever propaganda buzzword we were using that week, but we did it anyway. And now here we are over 60 days into these shutdowns with no official end in sight. People are understandably upset.
If it was ever going to be a 90-day shutdown from the beginning we should have been told that from the outset. Instead of this 14 days at a time BS they keep pulling. They gave people a timeframe for how long this would last and people planned for that specific timeframe of 14 days. To keep extending the lockdowns is to ask people to destroy their own livelihood and for many they would simply rather die.
With the death rate so incredibly low, many people are deciding that the risks of contracting the virus seem to be worth taking in order to continue providing for themselves and earning a living. Many people understand that the longer we put our lives on hold the further we sink into debt.
For many people it just isn’t worth the financial trouble. I understand where these protests are coming from and I fully support them. I also have a very strong feeling that we will not see any spikes in infection count as a result. Many large gatherings of people have occurred over the past 60 days and none have resulted in any serious outbreaks.
This is why people are so upset about these lockdowns. Because the narrative in the Media doesn’t reflect the reality on the ground. The death toll could be multiplied by 10 and it would still only be a 1/3rd the amount of people that die in America every year…Millions of people die every year from cancer, flu, accidents, all sorts of dangerous stuff, and we never shut down the economy over any of it…
We didn’t even stop gathering in large crowds after the Vegas Massacre of 2017! World War 2 didn’t even prompt these kinds of shutdowns! This is totally insane and out of control!
IT MUST END NOW! BREAK THE LOCKDOWN!
