CA Gov. Newsom Implements Mandatory COVID Vaccine for State Workers

Newsom went from promoting herd immunity to ‘We are now dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated’

By Katy Grimes, July 26, 2021 12:39 pm

Gov. Gavin Newsom just announced Monday he is implementing a first-in-the-nation requirement for all state workers and workers in health care to either show proof of COVID vaccination or be tested at least once to twice per week.

Newsom also encouraged all local government and other employers to adopt a similar protocol.

During his press conference Monday, Newsom said “We are now dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and it’s going to take renewed efforts to protect Californians from the dangerous Delta variant.”

As the Globe pointed out, Newsom went from promoting herd immunity in California to “We are now dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” today. He said last week 76.6% of Californians have had the vaccine, “but that’s not good enough!” How is 23.4% “a pandemic of unvaccinated?”

Newsom also said, “The vast majority of new cases are among the unvaccinated, with 600 percent higher case rates among the unvaccinated than for those who are vaccinated.”

However, a physician contacted the Globe and said testing protocol from Scripts is indicating that they aren’t testing the vaccinated in the hospitals – they are only testing the unvaccinated for COVID (see below), despite the many COVID breakthrough cases reported. The physician asked, “I wonder if this is the new testing protocol state wide?”

The physician contacted another hospital and reported to the Globe:

“They HAVE NOT been testing the vaccinated for COVID routinely like they have the unvaccinated, but they JUST changed their policy to begin doing this.”  Unbelievable!  So all this BS in the newspapers has been spewing about the vaccinated NOT having COVID BECAUSE THEY DON’T TEST FOR IT!”

That would certainly go a long way to produce numbers reflecting Newsom’s “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

The elephant in the room continues to be the Californians who already had COVID and recovered, didn’t know they had it and/or were asymptomatic, as well as those who never caught the COVID flu because their immune systems are strong. Another medical professional told the Globe that at this point, everyone in California was exposed to someone who had COVID, so herd immunity is working.

The latest orders for state workers from Gov. Newsom indicate he has no inkling of giving up his emergency powers. Instead, he’s doubling down on totalitarianism, and holding state employees hostage. Under a totalitarian regime, all citizens are subject to the absolute authority of the state.

This is happening in the State Capitol as well. The Globe reported July 9th, “Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and Sen. Pro Tem Toni Atkins are telling Capitol staffers that despite 85% of State Capitol legislators and staffers having been vaccinated, ‘it’s not good enough.’”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Overall US COVID-19 Vaccine rates are at about 50% of the country, with the most important age group, 65-and-older at 88.6% with at least one dose; 78.9% have had both doses.


Gov. Newsom is facing many more legal challenges, of which he is certain to lose.

The 9th Circuit just ruled on Friday that Gov. Gavin Newsom violated the “right of parents to control their children’s education” by closing private schools.

@ReopenCASchools and @kidsunmasked filed a lawsuit last week “to end Gavin Newsom’s cruel and unscientific school mask mandate.”

“We’re asking a judge to immediately halt CA’s:

-School mask mandate

-Quarantining healthy kids

-Routine asymptomatic testing

Let Them Breathe is a quickly growing group of over 12K parents who are concerned about the detrimental effects of masks on their children’s mental, physical, emotional, and social health,” the group says on its website. “Sharon McKeeman founded LET THEM BREATHE to promote mask choice and end mask mandates for youth (and everyone!)”

While parents and most private sector employers and business owners are trying to move on and rebuild after Newsom’s 16+ month statewide lockdown, the governor is digging in with mandates that are not supported by science – unless political science is the standard.

Even Gov. Newsom admits, “California has administered more vaccines than any other state.” But then his Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly stokes more fear, claiming, “The Delta variant is up to 60 percent more infectious than the Alpha strain but many times more infectious than the original COVID-19 strain. If you have been waiting to get vaccinated, now is the time.”

Dr. Ghaly neglected to say that the Delta variant looks to be much less lethal than previous variants, despite media and public health officials ginning up fear. “That is essentially the panic porn dressed up as science that we have been treated to ever since the virus declined in January following the winter spread, which appears to have given us a great deal of herd immunity,” Daniel Horowitz recently reported.

As we reported in early July, the New Civil Liberties Alliance and a panel of legal and medical experts explained during a two-hour discussion that supposedly “voluntary” Vaccine Passport Programs are coercive. “The mandate itself completely undermines trust in public health,” said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, epidemiologist and professor of medicine at Stanford University. “Like ‘if the government is forcing me, then what’s wrong with it?’”

A poignant response was: “2 weeks to slow the spread became Level 100 government overreach real quick.”

  1. So now we have the “CEO” of California bullying his employees to get the EUA experimental shot in order to keep their job. He claims he is setting a good example for private corporations!!
    Katy, I so appreciate that you asked about those who have existing antibodies, how do they fit in? If that is not addressed then I suspect it is only about coercing citizens to be part of a government experiment and not about health.

    Meredith McBride has it correct, this nonsense will continue until Gruseome Newsom is shown the door. That is the example I hope our fellow citizens will set. Politicians who abuse their power need to be voted out. We have that opportunity on September 14, 2022.

    Newsom keep reminding us just who you are!

  2. A very important point this article mentioned:

    The government is only counting cases in vaccinated people that require hospitalization. The government is manipulating the data by using two different standards.

  3. That’s it —- doesn’t matter what the facts are, Gruesome wants us on the road to totalitarianism and it looks like vaccine browbeating is the way his ugly, bullying crowd intends to get us there. Outraged yet? If so, Vote YES to Recall Newsom September 14. And stay tuned, because you definitely haven’t seen the last of Gov Gav shooting himself in the foot.

  4. How he can mandate a vaccine that is not FDA approved and only authorized for emergency use is beyond me. What about the people who have had covid? have antibodies? natural immunity?

  5. Scripps not Scripts…

    And Mercola.com just published an article that the jabbed are actually leading the case count but also describes in detail the misapplied cycle counts for the test population cohorts…

    We are witnessing the greatest psychological manipulation of a manufactured health crisis to institute draconian and tyrannical politics ever…

    Fight the power….

    Recall Newsom… We can replace him with a sack of potatoes and have better governance…

    I suffered through a press conference with him on the John & Ken show earlier today and wanted to drive knitting needles into my ears, rather than suffer through his raspy, breathy word salad responses to questions…

    Gavin Newsom is literally a dumbass….

  6. “Pandemic of the unvaccinated”… he’s referring to the illegals pouring across our border riiiiiight?

  7. Comrades
    For the collective good listen to your block warden or town Commissars. We need to get a handle on this virus.

  8. California state employees need to file a class-action lawsuit against Gov. Newscum and get an emergency injunction against his coercive mandate. For an adult to obtain the experimental mRNA injection falsely called a vaccine, they must receive an informed consent form and a release of liability form to be signed by that person. Newscum’s mandate is coercion. Let’s see if the state unions file an emergency injunction against Newscum’s coercive mandate. The US death rate continues to climb from these experimental mRNA injections currently over 11,000. See OpenVaers.com and search for Americas Frontline Doctors .

    1. Christian, 11,000 out of how many millions vaccinated? Percentage would be a more statistically valid and publicly informative number.

      1. Who gives a flying fig? If you or your family are one of the 11,000, and you’re messed up for life, or DIE from taking this experimental RNA altering concoction, then you’d care a whole lot more than demanding math ratios…
        11K is probably a whole lot more than those who actually died FROM Covid, legitimately, and not the overinflated PCR 35+ cycle count manipulation….

      2. There are doctors suing the government because the numbers are actually 45,000+. The number of injured is over half a million, some of them kids. Maybe you can tell those families about percentages.

  9. “This is not a vaccine. This is an mRNA packaged in a fat envelope, that is delivered to a cell. It is a medical device designed to stimulate the human cell into becoming a pathogen creator. It is not a vaccine. Vaccines are legally defined.” ………… “And a vaccine specifically has to stimulate both, an immunity within the person who is receiving it, but it also has to disrupt transmission. And that is not what this is.” -Dr. David Martin (presently working with Reiner Fuellmich) ….Show us the science, Gavin & Ghaly

  10. You can see the writing on the wall. The fact they are only going to test the unvaccinated means they can manipulate the numbers to scare more people. Test everyone including the vaxed so we can see how many of them test positive. Another thing I can see coming is a form of segregating the vaxed from the unvaxed. If the vaxed folks are so proud to have received the jab, they can were a sticker saying ” I GOT THE EXPERIMENTAL NON-FDA APPROVED JAB “

  11. People who choose to pursue a career in health care are not “health care workers” (Communist term), and they are most certainly not government workers. Newsome can shove off.

  12. 25 conversation starters, debate starters- the missing ingredients to end this nonsense….25 Facts we will never hear from fake news, copied from “The Healthy American, How To Say No to The Needle”

    1. There is no legal authority that can require you to get a vaccine against your will.

    2. If you don’t get a vaccine, you cannot be coerced into wearing a mask, getting tested, or
    being excluded from your school or place of employment.

    3. The law is on your side. You have the right to be accommodated for your medical
    condition or religious beliefs.

    4. You have to educate your boss or school about the law. (We can help you do that.)

    5. Your employer/school will try to confuse, coerce, intimidate, threaten and harass you.
    This is called retaliation and discrimination, and that is against the law.

    6. You have the right to determine what is done with your body.

    7. It doesn’t matter whether the vaccine only has an “emergency authorization” or not.

    8. Even if the vaccine becomes approved, you cannot be forced to take one.

    9. You can seek an exemption for the vaccine, the mask and the testing. We recommend a
    religious exemption, which also includes your sincerely-held ethical and moral beliefs.

    10. The masks and the testing are also “emergency use authorization” but even if they
    weren’t, you cannot be forced into complying.

    11. Only a licensed medical doctor can prescribe a medical treatment such as a mask, covid
    testing or a vaccine. Your boss or school administrator has no authority to do so.

    12. No CDC guidelines, OSHA regulations or health officer order can suspend your rights.

    13. You have the constitutionally-protected and GUARANTEED right to life and the right to
    determine what it done to your body.

    14. You do not have to tell your boss or school administrator whether or not you got
    vaccinated. That is your private information. You cannot be discriminated against for not
    disclosing that information.

    15. IMPORTANT!! Do NOT sign any paper that says you will disclose your medical
    information and do NOT agree to wearing a mask or testing.

    16. You do not have to defend yourself against their requests. Instead: turn the tables and
    demand that they tell you their LEGAL AUTHORITY to require you to participate in these
    medical interventions.

    17. IMPORTANT!!! Don’t focus on the science (or lack thereof). It actually weakens your

    18. It is UNLAWFUL for your employer/school to assume you are a threat to the health and
    safety of others, without proof from a licensed medical doctor or an order from the

    19. Only a COURT ORDER can compel you to cover your face, get a covid test or get
    vaccinated. And even then – you can appeal the court’s decision.

    20. And if you DID have a contagious disease – now you would be covered under ADA
    laws and your needs would have to be accommodated by law.

    21. Federal law requires your employer/school to accommodate your religious beliefs – or
    sincerely-held ethical or moral beliefs – without discrimination.

    22. Your employer/school may delay, deny or deliberately try to make it so difficult for you
    so that you give in, give up or give over your sovereign authority and God-given RIGHT
    to determine what it done to your body. DON’T FALL FOR IT! We can tell you what to do.

    23. Your employer/school may tell you that they are: following OSHA regulations; following
    the CDC; or following their own policies. Demand that they produce the statutory law
    that gives them the authority to violate your rights.

    24. Your employer/school will tell you that accommodating you creates a “hardship” and
    therefore they don’t have to accommodate you. The LAW states that the school or
    employer has to PROVE that the hardship is more than just minimal. Are you asking for
    your own private classroom, tutor, office, air filtration, personal trainer, personal chef,
    24/7 medical care and chauffeur? If not, then there is NO HARDSHIP.

    25. Remember: YOU do not have to prove anything. Your employer/school are supposed to
    BELIEVE you regarding your religious /ethical/moral belief. They can seek “reasonable”
    information about your beliefs, but you do not have to belong to any church or
    organized religion, nor do you have to show any attendance or explain in detail your
    beliefs. THEY are the ones who have to show the reason why they will not
    accommodate you. And if they do—you can appeal. We can show you how.

    An unconstitutional act is not law. It confers no rights, it imposes no duties, it affords no protections, it creates no office, it isin legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed Norton v Shelby County 118 US 425
